The little black dog, Ruins of End, also followed along and was held in Liu Yan’s arms as he bared his teeth and roared towards the second group of people. These people seemed to be extremely afraid of him and each of them had a deep fear in their eyes.
Yang Kai glanced at them thoughtfully before fixing his eyes on the first group of seven or eight and asking, “Were they all possessed by Demonic Consciousness?”
Wen Zishan nodded solemnly, “Yes, see if you can save them.”
“It’s difficult,” Yang Kai slowly shook his head. Although he had never tried it before, he knew that these Demon Race people who had been possessed by Demonic Consciousness were fundamentally different from those who had been corroded by Demonic Qi. Even if he had an Ancient Wizard Technique, he probably wouldn’t have much hope.
“Let’s give it a try,” Ma Qing pleaded. One of these Elders was from his Heavenly Martial Holy Land, he really couldn’t bear to lose here.
Yang Kai nodded, “Good, but don’t expect too much from me Holy Master Ma.”
“Elder Yang, just do your best,” Ma Qing smiled bitterly.
Yang Kai stood up and walked over to the group of devils, examining them with great interest. To be honest, even at this moment, he couldn’t find any trace of abnormality on these devils, making them no different from ordinary people. It was no wonder that even though Plain Palace had fallen, the entire Southern Domain was still in the dark.
These seven or eight people were men and women, old men and young men. Yang Kai walked around them and casually stopped in front of a young man. As their eyes met, the young man’s eyes clearly showed a nervous look.
Yang Kai smiled at him and muttered a spell before pointing a finger towards his forehead. A milky white light burst out from his fingertip and hit his forehead.
As the light washed over him, the young man’s entire body trembled and his face became incomparably fierce as he let out a beast-like roar and struggled with all his might. Unfortunately, he was already covered in many restrictions, so how could he escape?
Under the Demon Expelling Technique, the young man’s Demonic Qi quickly wrapped around his body. With the Demon Expelling Technique, the Demonic Qi on the young man’s body continued to dissipate, but his vitality also began to wane. In an extremely short period of time, his face became pale, as if he had been fished out of water, his clothes drenched in sweat.
A moment later, his eyes rolled back and he fainted.
Yang Kai stopped and slowly shook his head.
Seeing this scene, Ma Qing and the others also let out a long sigh. They had been mentally prepared before coming here, but after seeing that Yang Kai’s methods had no effect on these devils, they had given up.
After all, they had been possessed by Demonic Consciousness and their will had long since been devoured. These Demon Race masters had undergone fundamental changes, so even if Yang Kai’s Demon Expelling Technique was able to expel their Demonic Qi, it was still damaging their foundations. Even if he could completely expel all of their Demonic Qi, these people would still become walking corpses without any self-awareness.
Yang Kai was well aware of this fact. When Feng Ming had taken out the Demon Seed to corrode his Knowledge Sea and attempted to possess him, Yang Kai still remembered it vividly.
“It’s hopeless,” Yang Kai glanced at Ma Qing, “Did you get any useful information from them?”
Wen Zishan sighed and said, “No, these guys are all keeping their mouths shut, not caring about death at all.”
“Is that so?” Yang Kai stretched out his hand to Liu Yan, who immediately walked over and handed him the Ruins of End.
Holding the Ruins of End in one hand, Yang Kai stood in front of the devils and swept his eyes across them before saying, “If you want to live, tell me what you’re plotting. If the information is useful, I can spare your lives.”
Seven or eight people stared at him quietly, but apart from the young man who had passed out, no one answered.
Yang Kai nodded, “All of you aren’t afraid of death, very good.” As he spoke, he gently patted the head of the Ruins of End. The little black dog let out a roar and suddenly stretched out its head, spitting out a mouthful of blood as it swallowed a Demonized Man standing in front of Yang Kai.
This scene caused the eyelids of Ma Qing and the others to twitch. Even though they had witnessed this strange little black dog’s methods before, they were still somewhat shocked. It was not strange for Monster Beasts to eat humans, but the key point was that the Ruins of End didn’t eat humans, but instead demonized humans. Not only that, it had even swallowed the endless Demonic Qi in the mountain valley, causing everyone to be amazed.
Wen Zishan, on the other hand, had a thoughtful look on his face. He knew about the existence of the Ruins of End. In the past, Gong Yue had found the Ruins of End from the Azure Sun Temple. At that time, it had nearly swallowed Feng Ming in one gulp. The combined attacks of more than a dozen Emperor Realm masters had all been swallowed by it and then bounced back. According to Gong Yue, this little beast seemed to have the bloodline of a Demon Territory Beast, so it was normal for it to have such a bizarre performance.
After swallowing a Demonized Man, the remaining Demonized Men all became restless, staring at the Ruins of End as if they were staring at their mortal enemy, filled with fear and dread, but now that their strength had been sealed, even if they wanted to escape, they couldn’t.
Yang Kai looked at them calmly and said lightly, “Take your time to think about it. If anyone thinks it through, feel free to ask. As long as you can provide some decent information, I’ll keep my word.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the Ruins of End opened its mouth and swallowed a second devil.
Yang Kai didn’t say anything else, simply dragging the Ruins of End forward step by step. Every time he arrived in front of a Demon, the Ruins of End would swallow him whole, and in the blink of an eye, he had swallowed five of them, leaving only two of them standing there, their eyes filled with hatred, but they still remained silent.
Seeing this scene, Yang Kai sighed helplessly, “Sure enough, they’re all tough men.”
Turning to Ma Qing and the others, he said, “I’m afraid we won’t be able to get anything out of them.”
Ma Qing’s expression became cold, “Since that’s the case, we won’t keep them.”
If they weren’t demonized man, Ma Qing might have tried to use some kind of Soul Capturing Technique to pry into the secrets in their minds, but who would have the courage to do such a thing when it came to Demonized Man? If they were contaminated by Demonic Qi, it would be a huge loss.
Since there was no point in keeping them alive, he could only eliminate them completely.
The Ruins of End swallowed the remaining two Demons into its stomach in two mouthfuls, showing a look of unsatisfaction on its faces as it turn its eyes towards the dozen or so people on the other side.
“What about them?” Yang Kai asked curiously.
“We have to ask this beast pet of yours,” Wen Zishan frowned, “It keeps barking at these people, I wonder if there’s something wrong with it.” When the battle in the mountain valley had ended, all the great Sects had been gathering the survivors and collecting the remains of the dead, but unexpectedly, the Ruins of End had suddenly appeared in front of a cultivator and was roaring non-stop. Due to their strange performance before the Ruins of End, Wen Zishan and Ma Qing had been careful and ordered their men to detain this cultivator.
Unexpectedly, the Ruins of End constantly shuttled through the crowd and found a dozen or so people, resulting in this situation.
“I’m wronged, Temple Master Wen, I’m a disciple of Clear Cloud Sect, how could there be a problem?” A young girl explained with a bitter expression while the others all chimed in.
Yang Kai said, “Whether there’s a problem or not, we’ll know once we try.” Taking a step forward, he directly arrived in front of the young girl.
The young girl was shocked and took a few steps back, “You, what do you want?”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and directly grabbed her head. When he used his Demon Expelling Technique, the young girl’s expression immediately changed as wisps of black Qi poured out from her body, causing her to wail.
Seeing this, everyone’s expressions changed drastically.
“There really is a problem!” Ma Qing said seriously.
Wen Zishan also wore a look of lingering fear as he stared at the Ruins of End in amazement, knowing that if it weren’t for this little beast’s abnormal performance, all of them would have been fooled.
When was a person’s mentality the most relaxed? It was when they won the battle.
When the dust settled in the Plain Palace, no one had expected that there would be a hidden Demon in the crowd, and no one had the means to identify them. If these people were to leave this place alive, perhaps a second or third Plain Palace would appear one day.
Yang Kai examined them one by one and found that the dozen or so people who had been found by the Ruins of End had all been secretly possessed by Demonic Consciousness. He didn’t know if they had been possessed before or if they had done so in the midst of chaos, but judging from the different origins of these people and their varying cultivation levels, it was likely the latter.
Since they had already been possessed, there was nothing more to say. In just a moment, they had already entered the Ruins of End’s belly.
Wen Zishan said, “Do you want this beast pet of yours to look around again? If there are any Demonic Consciousness remnants…”
Previously, he had been unable to determine who had been possessed by the Demonic Consciousness, but now that he had a weapon like the Ruins of End, he naturally had to check carefully.
Yang Kai nodded, “Good.” Saying so, he tossed the Ruins of End to Liu Yan, “Take it with you.”
Liu Yan took the Ruins of End and turned to leave.
Not far away, Wu Chang watched this scene calmly, but his heart was in turmoil.
More than a month ago, when everyone had met at the entrance of the Plain Palace, he had spoken rudely and ridiculed Yang Kai, boasting that Yang Kai had the qualifications to fight him, but who would have thought that in just a short month, this opponent, whom he had not placed in his eyes before, would actually speak to his Holy Master on equal terms, and the matter of the Plain Palace had been saved by him. If it weren’t for him, all of the Southern Domain forces would have been wiped out.
Thinking about the two hundred or so Emperor Realm masters he had casually pulled over, and then thinking about the unruly thirty-two Monster Kings, and the three Holy Spirits who had followed his orders… Wuchang felt a sense of helplessness.
At some point in time, this person from the same generation as him had already walked far ahead of him, becoming someone from a different world.
Thinking back to the bold words he had spoken more than a month ago, he realized that he had been too ridiculous and childish. At that time, the other party probably didn’t put him in his eyes, right? Deep down, he couldn’t help feeling a deep sense of defeat, feeling like he was a clown.
Chen Wenhao stood next to him and seemed to sense the change in his mood, raising his hand and patting him on the shoulder, “Each person has their own destiny. This person’s luck is extremely good, one in a million, not everyone can compare to him.”
Wu Chang let out a soft sigh, “I know,” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “After I return this time, I’ll go into seclusion. After my cultivation breaks through, I’ll go out and travel.”
Chen Wenhao turned his head to look at him and nodded, “Very well.” A flower in a greenhouse could not resist the wind and rain.
