In the blink of an eye, Yang Kai returned to the Plain Palace, but the scene in front of him caused his eyes to twitch. The Plain Palace's Sect Protection Array had already been opened, and a translucent curtain of light, like an inverted bowl, protected the Plain Palace completely.
Before he even arrived, he heard a series of miserable screams. It was clear that many people had already been killed, and when he looked towards a certain spot in the Plain Palace, he saw black Qi soaring into the sky and a thick Demonic Qi.
Yang Kai’s complexion greatly changed. If he remembered correctly, the place where the Demonic Qi came from should be the place where the banquet would be held tonight. Before he left, there were hundreds of Emperor Realm masters and tens of thousands of Southern Domain elite disciples gathered there. Could it be that they had all been killed?
However, after thinking about it for a moment, he realized something was wrong. If that was the case, there was no need for the Plain Palace to draw him away. There were hundreds of Emperor Realm, many of them Third-Order Emperor Realm. If all of them were to be corroded by the Demonic Qi, it would be difficult for him to resist.
The purpose of luring him away was obviously because the Plain Palace was afraid they wouldn’t be able to control the situation and would attack him first. It was no secret that Yang Kai was proficient in Space Abilities, so once he is still in the Plain Palace, there would be no chance to start.
From the looks of it, although the situation was dangerous, it wasn’t to the point of no return. Yang Kai estimated that Wen Zishan and the others wouldn’t be so easily corroded by the Demonic Qi, perhaps they were currently resisting inside the Plain Palace.
With a flash of his figure, he stopped in front of the grand formation and swept his eyes across it. Immediately, his eyes filled with hatred. Inside the Plain Palace, many cultivators were fighting to escape, obviously sensing that something was wrong. They wanted to escape from the Plain Palace, but with the Sect Protecting Spirit Array blocking them, how could they escape? All of them were stopped and many of them were killed by the pursuing Demon Race cultivators. Some of them saw that they had no hope of escaping and hurriedly returned to find another way out.
Screams of pain, pleas for mercy, and cries of grief filled Yang Kai’s ears. The people who were still alive and kicking during the day were instantly reduced to a pile of meat paste, causing Yang Kai to burn with rage. As he swept his eyes around, his eyes suddenly froze as he stared towards a certain spot several hundred meters away.
On a small hill, there was a corpse lying on the ground, its familiar clothes and familiar face. There was a hole in its chest, and one could vaguely see its internal organs. Blood stained the hill where it lay. The blood had yet to dry, and its eyes were still closed. Its head was tilted to the side as it lay motionless, its originally dazzling eyes now dull and lifeless.
“Yu Zhuo…” Yang Kai opened his mouth and called out softly, but received no response.
Dead? The person who had been looking for him for the past month had died just like that? Yang Kai couldn’t believe his eyes. The clear and melodious voice resounded in his ears, and the figure who had turned around and waved goodbye to him as she left was extremely clear. He could still remember the anxious look on her face when she came to thank him with her clean clothes, as well as the look of anticipation in her eyes when she repeatedly talked to him.
Due to this, Yang Kai had refused to be entangled with her for fear that he would ruin the beauty’s beauty, so he had simply refused her.
However, that lively figure was now lying on a cold hill, seemingly having some kind of premonition, staring towards him before she died…
The blood in Yang Kai’s body suddenly became cold and bone-piercing. Yang Kai avoided the pair of lifeless eyes staring straight at him, not daring to meet them directly. Lowering his head, the hair on his forehead cast a shadow over his eyes as he clenched his fists and roared towards the sky, “Lei Gu!”
A few dozen kilometers away, Lei Gu, who was standing in the air, turned his head and coldly snorted, “He actually came back.”
His eyes flashed as he flew over.
Yang Kai’s angry shout was clearly heard by many of the fleeing cultivators. At this moment, all of them gathered towards him from all directions and stopped in front of him, shouting, “Senior, save me!”
Yang Kai raised his eyes and swept his gaze across the panicked faces before fixing his eyes on a certain spot behind them.
Lei Gu’s burly figure suddenly appeared, his hands clasped behind his back as he stood in the air, a cold look on his face. His eyes had turned completely black as Demonic Qi swirled around his body.
As soon as he appeared, he gently waved his hand.
Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed as he shouted towards the cultivator in front of him, “Run!”
How could they escape? The cultivation of Lei Gu's Third-Order Emperor Realm master had now been corroded by the Demonic Qi and had become bloodthirsty. A formless slash cut through the air, directly cutting dozens of people in half. In an instant, the Sect Protecting Grand Array became a river of blood, causing all living beings to wail in pain. This slash wouldn’t immediately kill them, but it would allow them to experience endless fear before they died. The screams and wails of the people around them added an endless gloom to the world.
“You still dare to come back!” Lei Gu coldly stared at Yang Kai and sneered.
“So it really was you,” Yang Kai gnashed his teeth.
Lei Gu sneered, “So what? What can you do to me?”
Yang Kai glanced at the Sect Protecting Spirit Array in front of him and suddenly suppressed his anger and guilt, calmly asking, “Do you think a single Spirit Array can stop me?”
Lei Gu said, “Then you can try.”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and pointed at him, “If I don’t destroy your Plain Palace, I swear I won’t be human!”
At this moment, a loud shout suddenly came from inside, “Yang Kai, the Plain Palace has been reduced to a Demon Cave, quickly go and seek help!”
Yang Kai was stunned for a moment and recognized that it was Wen Zishan’s voice, but he didn’t have the time to pay any attention to Lei Gu as he shouted, “Temple Master, how is the situation inside?”
“We can still hold on for a while, hurry to Star Soul Palace!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s heart sank. He knew that the situation inside was not good, otherwise Wen Zishan wouldn’t have asked him to go to Star Soul Palace. However, the journey to Star Soul Palace at this time was quite long, and it would take at least a few days to return. If he were to return now, it would be too late, so he could only reply, “Rest assured Temple Master, I have my own plans!”
Lei Gu suddenly grinned and said, “Yang Kai, seeing how difficult it is for you to cultivate, I can’t bear to make things difficult for you. Why don’t you join me? With your strength, your future is quite promising!”
“Surrender to you? Keep dreaming!” Yang Kai shouted angrily, his body shaking as he shouted, “Dragon Transformation!”
A loud dragon roar rang out, and the phantom of a golden dragon appeared before disappearing into Yang Kai’s body. With a loud bang, Yang Kai’s figure rapidly expanded.
Five zhang, ten zhang, fifteen zhang, twenty zhang…
Lei Gu’s eyes slowly shifted upwards as his expression changed drastically, a look of disbelief flashing across his eyes as he stared at the giant creature in front of him and cried out, “Dragon Vein!”
He finally understood why that person had failed. This Yang Kai actually possessed a Dragon Vein. Although it didn’t seem to be an orthodox Dragon Vein, a Dragon Vein that could be used to such an extent was obviously not too bad. The Dragon Race’s physique was tough to begin with, and they had a strong immunity to poison, so it would be strange if that person succeeded.
However, he hadn’t expected Yang Kai to be able to use such a Divine Ability. If he had known earlier, he would have told the other party to be more careful and perhaps he would have been able to succeed in one strike.
Space Divine Ability and the Dragon Vein. Lei Gu’s face sank. If this child was not eliminated, he would definitely become a big problem.
Before Lei Gu could react, Yang Kai suddenly raised his hand and released his Embodiment. With a single thought, he understood Yang Kai’s intentions and with a roar, the human-sized body suddenly expanded.
Twenty zhang, thirty zhang, fifty zhang…
The corner of Lei Gu’s eyes twitched. What he saw today was simply inconceivable. Yang Kai becoming so huge was already beyond his expectations. Where did this Stone Golem come from? It looked like it was made of stone fire, but how could it be so big?
“Break the formation!” Yang Kai’s figure was majestic and his voice was like a dragon’s roar. As soon as he finished speaking, he raised his hands together with his Embodiment and cupped his fists.
As if two mountains had crashed down, two giant craters immediately appeared on the light curtain of the Sect Protecting Array.
Last time, the Sect Protection Array of Full Sky Sect had been broken by the Embodiment. Full Sky Sect’s foundation was not much worse than that of Plain Palace, so no matter how strong the Sect Protection Array was, there was a limit to it, so Yang Kai had no doubt that he and his Embodiment would be able to break through it.
When the crater appeared, Yang Kai’s face lit up with joy, but before he could recover from his shock, the collapsed light curtain actually bounced back at an extremely fast speed, and at the same time, a powerful force passed through his fists.
Yang Kai was caught off guard and was sent flying, his sixty-meter-tall body like a collapsing mountain as he tumbled through the air.
A rumbling sound rang out, and Yang Kai turned his head to see that his Embodiment was also like this, its body even larger and more violent than his own.
* Chi… *
As he rolled, Yang Kai managed to stabilize himself. The Embodiment also did the same, staring at each other in shock.
The Sect Protecting Array of the Plain Palace was very different from that of Full Sky Sect.
Lei Gu’s side also breathed a sigh of relief, secretly rejoicing at their luck. If it weren’t for the fact that the Great Array’s characteristics could reflect brute force, with the strength of these two monsters in front of them, there would be no Array in this world that could resist their violent attacks.
“Again!” Yang Kai shouted as he took a big step forward. Although he looked clumsy, his speed was actually extremely fast as he arrived in front of the grand formation. This time, he struck out with his fists.
The Great Array’s light barrier once again caved in, but a violent force rebounded, causing his arm to go numb and forcing him to stagger backwards. The situation on his Embodiment's side was the same.
Yang Kai’s heart sank as he realized that the situation was far from good. The Plain Palace's Sect Protection Array was actually able to reflect brute force, so no matter how much strength he used, it was able to rebound back. It was simply the nemesis of him and his Embodiment.
If the Full Sky Sect’s Great Array was also like this, then it wouldn’t have been so easy for his Embodiment to break it.
“Ridiculous!” Seeing this, Lei Gu sneered, “The opportunity is right in front of you, if you don’t cherish it, you can’t blame others. In the future, when my Demon Race army flattens this world, don’t regret it!”
The Demon Race army…
Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat, but he couldn’t be bothered to pay any attention to him. As soon as he spoke the Dragon Tongue, a giant golden dragon phantom punched out and struck the light barrier. This time, the light barrier rippled but showed no signs of rebounding.
Seeing this, Yang Kai understood that this Great Array really could reflect brute force, but it could only neutralize energy attacks. In other words, relying on brute force alone was not enough to break this Array, which made his greatest strength and Embodiment useless.
