Just as Yang Kai and the others were about to take action, inside the Plain Palace, Lei Gu, who was wrapped in Demonic Qi, also received the news. Turning his head, he stared at a nearby Demon and asked, “Are you sure?”
The Demon cupped his hands and said, “Reporting to Great Lord, I am absolutely sure. There are more than two hundred people here, and all of them are at the Emperor Realm.” This Demon wore the robes of the Plain Palace and was obviously a member of the Plain Palace. His cultivation was also at the 1st order Emperor Realm, so he was probably an Elder of the Plain Palace, but at this moment he had obviously been possessed by a Demonic Will.
Lei Gu’s eyes flashed as he frowned, “How is that possible?”
The Southern Domain’s arrangements were meticulous, taking advantage of the Martial Meeting to plot against the Emperor Realm masters and tens of thousands of elite disciples. They had planned everything meticulously, but at the last moment, Yang Kai disturb their plan.
He also didn’t expect that Yang Kai, who had disappeared for more than a decade, would participate in the Southern Domain Martial Meeting, which was why he had asked someone to lure him away and assassinate him in secret. Who would have thought that even that person would fail? This made him extremely depressed. Only now did he realize that those who possessed Spatial Divine Abilities were truly proficient in life-saving methods. It had only been less than a day, so where had that Yang fellow found so many helpers? All of them were even Emperor Realm.
However, since his subordinate had spoken so confidently, He had no choice but to believe him. For safety’s sake, he decided to personally go take a look. After giving the Demon a few words of advice, His figure flickered and he arrived at the mountain gate. Looking around, he couldn’t help wearing a solemn expression.
Yang Kai, who had been gone for a day, had indeed returned with many helpers. In addition to Shi Huo, who had been staying here to monitor the situation, there were also eight or nine Stone Golems, as well as a dozen or so Emperor Realm.
Looking around, one could see a person standing in the air outside the grand protective array of the Plain Palace. When they saw him appear, they all looked over.
They really were all Emperor Realm, and there were quite a lot of them. Although Lei Gu wasn’t sure how many people Yang Kai had brought with him, it seemed that the demon's report was quite accurate.
Where did he find so many Emperor Realm masters? It had only been a day, and even if he had rushed to the various great Sects of the Southern Domain to inform them, it was impossible for him to find so many reinforcements in such a short time.
Lei Gu’s expression became somewhat solemn as he faintly felt that things were not looking good. If this plan failed, Yang Kai would definitely be the main culprit, causing him to be filled with hatred. After so many years of planning, he had actually lost to a single person. How could he not be angry?
“He really has become a devil,” Ji Yao stood next to Yang Kai, and when she saw Lei Gu, she couldn’t help clicking her tongue in wonder as she sized him up. This was also the first time she had seen a cultivator who had become a devil. Although this was the first time she had seen one, the black Qi surrounding Lei Gu gave her an extremely uncomfortable feeling, as if it was rejecting her from the depths of her soul.
Was this Demonic Qi? It was indeed extremely filthy.
“Lei Gu, today will be the day you die!” Yang Kai grit his teeth and shouted, his eyes burning with hatred.
Lei Gu’s expression was cold as he turned around and left without saying a word, not even bothering to say a word to Yang Kai. The main reason he had come here was to see if there was anything wrong with the information he had received. Now that it had been confirmed, there was no need for him to stay.
Yang Kai was slightly surprised, knowing that this guy was about to go all out, so he immediately asked, “Is Temple Master here?”
His voice was controlled by his Emperor Qi and was like a rolling thunderclap that spread into the depths of Plain Palace.
A hearty laugh immediately rang out from inside, “He’s not dead yet.”
“Temple Master, hold on for a moment longer, I’ll save you now,” Yang Kai shouted again.
Wen Zishan’s voice rang out, “Good!” Although he didn’t know what was happening outside, since Yang Kai had returned, he must have found a helper. Now that everyone’s hopes of escaping had been placed on Yang Kai, they could only trust him unconditionally.
“Brat, if you don’t act now, your Temple Master will become a demon,” Ma Qing’s exasperated voice rang out.
Wen Zishan laughed loudly, “Nonsense, you’re the one who’s going to be demonized.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai grinned. Fortunately, he was in the mood to bicker, which meant that the situation had not reached its most critical point.
A hand was raised high in the air as a voice rang out, “Everyone, listen up!”
Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Clang! Sword came out, one Emperor Artifact after another, Monster Qi and Emperor Qi surging as they prepared to attack.
Yang Kai suddenly waved his hand and shouted, “Attack!”
As he spoke, a pitch-black moonblade slashed forward and struck the light curtain of the Plain Palace's Sect Protection Array, causing a burst of sound to ring out from the point of impact, causing the light curtain to bend slightly and creating a series of ripples.
In the next moment, hundreds of different kinds of attacks came from all directions, causing the light curtain to sway and the sky to darken. The World Energy became chaotic as all kinds of Laws intertwined like a net.
Before the light curtain of the Great Array could stabilize itself, it was already shaken and looked like it was about to collapse, but to everyone’s surprise, the light curtain managed to resist a round of fierce attacks and did not collapse immediately.
The Sect Protecting Spirit Array of the Plain Palace was naturally extraordinary. If someone had been in charge of the Spirit Array, they might have been able to repair it quickly, but at this moment, the Spirit Array was only acting on its own. It didn’t even have a host, so even if it had some ability to repair itself, its effects were minimal.
It wasn’t that Lei Gu didn’t want to stay here to manage the Spirit Array, but he also knew that with so many masters attacking together, the Spirit Array wouldn’t be able to hold out for long. Rather than wasting time here, he might as well try something else. Perhaps he might have a chance.
As soon as the first wave of attacks stopped, the second wave arrived, and it was even fiercer than the first. The sky changed color and the dry earth was flipped upside down. Every Emperor Realm master’s heart was filled with an indescribable hot blood.
This was the first time so many masters had attacked together, and just the momentum alone was enough to shock everyone. As a part of this commotion, Yang Kai’s helpers naturally felt honored.
With a loud bang, the grand array collapsed and the light curtain that had been surrounding the Plain Palace burst apart like a soap bubble.
“Kill!” Yang Kai roared and was the first to rush in.
Ji Yao, who was beside him, also followed closely behind, her figure graceful, but when she rushed into the Plain Palace, she turned her head and glanced to the side. On a small hill, a woman’s body was lying on the ground. She had a beautiful figure and a beautiful face, but her eyes were wide open as she died.
She didn’t know what kind of relationship this woman had with Yang Kai, but when Yang Kai glanced over just now, a look of pain flashed across his eyes. Ji Yao’s eyes flashed as she pointed her finger downwards, causing a snowflake to gently fall on the woman’s body. The snowflake didn’t melt, instead releasing an extremely cold aura. In the blink of an eye, the woman’s body was frozen in ice.
A group of Demon Race masters surrounded by black Qi rushed towards them, all of them wearing blank expressions as if they had lost their ability to think. They were like walking corpses, each wearing a different set of clothes, but they were clearly disciples of the great Sects of the Southern Domain. Waving their weapons, they rushed towards the group of Emperor Realm.
Yang Kai bore the brunt of this attack, his figure flickering as he flew past the group of Demon Race masters. Reaching out his hand, he gently patted them on the back of their heads, causing them to fall from the sky like dumplings into the forest below.
Yang Kai didn’t try to kill them. The Demonic Qi erosion may be a problem for others, but he could purge the Demonic Qi and restore the minds of these Demon Race masters. Otherwise, if he really went on a killing spree, the Southern Domain would suffer great losses.
However, at this moment, there was no time to look after them, so he could only knock them out as soon as possible. They weren’t flying too high, so even if they fell like this, it wouldn’t be fatal, not to mention there were still trees blocking their way.
The people following behind Yang Kai also did the same, activating their Emperor Qi to protect themselves so that the Demonic Qi wouldn’t easily corrode them while simultaneously knocking them out.
The Demon Race cultivators who rushed over were all below the Emperor Realm, so how could they be a match for them? Even if they were unafraid of death after becoming a demon, they still didn’t have the qualifications to fight against an Emperor Realm master. One by one, the Demonized cultivators fell unconscious and the scene became quite spectacular.
However, there were simply too many of these demons, roughly a thousand at the very least, and this was only in the direction of the mountain gate. If he were to count all the demons in the other directions of the Plain Palace, Yang Kai estimated that in just a day, the number of disciples who had been demonized had reached over ten thousand.
With Yang Kai leading the way, these dozen or so people were like a sharp knife that stabbed into the ranks of the Demonized man, leaving no room for resistance.
“It’s nothing much, hahahaha,” One of Full Sky Sect’s First-Order Emperor Realm Elders laughed loudly. Yang Kai had gathered so many masters just now, causing such a huge commotion that it inevitably caused some people to become nervous. They had thought that the so-called Demon Race was a big deal, but now that they had exchanged blows, they realized that this was all there was to it. It seemed that whether it was a Demon Race or something else, strength was the foundation of everything.
He wasn’t the only one who had such thoughts, most of them encounter a Demon for the first time.
The Demonic Qi emanating from the Demon Race’s bodies was indeed somewhat strange. It was extremely corrosive and filled with a sense of evil and filth, but with their Emperor Qi protecting their bodies and many of them wearing treasured armors, they were completely unafraid of this thin Demonic Qi.
Along the way, although these dozen or so people were surrounded by thousands of people, they were still talking and laughing. Although there were a lot of demons, with the methods of these dozen or so people, it wouldn’t take them more than a cup of tea time to knock all of them out. When the time came for them to gather, they would be able to charge into the depths of Plain Palace and Lei Gu would definitely be unable to escape.
However, at this moment, many of the demonized people’s faces suddenly turned red and their bodies swelled up as if they had been blown by a gust of wind. Their stomachs bulged as if they had been pregnant for ten months, and they let out pained cries as the Demonic Qi in their bodies fluctuated violently.
This sudden turn of events stunned many people, causing their movements to become much slower, but everyone felt a faint sense of crisis.
“Be careful!” Yang Kai’s expression changed, and with a loud shout, he grabbed the neck of one of the Demon Race masters who had just experienced a change, squeezing him so hard that he was about to faint. However, this Demon Race master’s eyes were wide open as he stared at him, his expanding body showing no signs of stopping.
