Amidst the piercing sound, a short and hurried cry rang out. Tang Sheng and Qian Xiuying’s eyes bulged as if they had seen a ghost, staring at the battlefield not far away in shock.
Lan He also froze for a moment before quickly opening her eyes.
Just now, she thought that Yang Kai was dead for sure, so she didn’t dare to look, but the screams she heard weren’t Yang Kai’s. Looking around, she saw a scene she would never forget for the rest of her life.
Yang Kai was no longer in his original position. Instead, he appeared above the spear-wielding cultivator’s head, his expression cold, his killing intent surging as he slapped the spear-wielding cultivator’s forehead. His Emperor Qi surged as his clothes and black hair fluttered in the wind.
Lan He could clearly see a large chunk of the spear-wielding cultivator’s head caved in, his eyes popping out as white brain matter splattered in all directions, his vitality quickly dissipating as his body swayed and fell.
How could this be? A question popped up in Lan He’s mind. She had closed her eyes just now and didn’t know how Yang Kai had managed to escape from these five people’s attacks, nor did she know how he had taken the life of an enemy in the blink of an eye, but she knew that this was not something an ordinary person could do. Even her Master and Mistress didn’t have the ability to do so. Facing such a dense and flawless siege, any Second-Order Emperor Realm could only surrender without resistance.
However, Yang Kai counterattacked and not only did he not suffer any injuries, he even managed to kill one of them. Looking at his expression, there was no trace of panic or anxiety, instead, it was as if he was slaughtering chickens and dogs.
That was a First-Order Emperor Realm master! Was he killed just like that? Lan He couldn’t help feeling a sense of surrealism. She was also a First-Order Emperor Realm master, so she naturally knew what kind of foundation a First-Order Emperor Realm master should have, but such a powerful master who was revered by billions of cultivators in the world had actually died at Yang Kai’s hands in a single exchange.
She couldn’t help shivering as a chill ran down her spine. At the same time, a strange light flashed across her beautiful eyes as she faintly felt that Yang Kai wouldn’t be killed so easily this time.
The spear-wielding cultivator was killed in a single blow, causing the other four to jump in fright, their eyes filled with fear and dread, but after a moment of hesitation, they once again charged towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai laughed loudly, “Since you’re in such a hurry to die, this King will grant you your wish!” With a wave of his hand, the Emperor Treasure long spear was grasped in his hand. Without any special method, Yang Kai simply clenched his fists and thrust forward, his momentum soaring.
Originally, there was no one there. At first glance, it seemed as if Yang Kai had made a mistake, but when the spear tip wrapped in Emperor Qi pierced through the void, a figure appeared there.
This person was an Elder from the Underworld Sect. Originally, he wanted to launch an attack from the side, but just as he arrived at his position, he felt a wave of deathly aura rush towards him. In his shock, he shook the red banner in his hand and it exploded into a bloody mist. This was his Origin Treasure, Blood Sea Banner. Under the cover of this bloody mist, he retreated.
However, he had only taken half a step back when he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his chest. His body shook violently as all the strength in his body rushed towards his chest and leaked out.
A horrifying thought appeared in his mind and he quickly looked down, only to see that a fist-sized hole had appeared in his chest at some point, piercing all the way from his chest to his back. Looking down from this hole, he could even see his broken heart rapidly contracting and blood gushing out like a fountain.
“No!” He screamed towards the sky, seemingly unable to believe what he had just experienced. How could Yang Kai have broken through the protection and defense of his Blood Sea Banner with a single spear strike?
Before he could finish his thoughts, his body swayed and he fell from the sky, dying before he even landed.
On the other side, Yang Kai, who had just succeeded in his first attack, did not stop. As he put away the spear, he turned the spear and thrust it out from under his ribs. His movements were like flowing water, dazzling everyone who saw them.
With a light cracking sound, it hit the head of the third person who had sneakily touched his back, releasing a violent force that directly blew up this person’s head.
This Emperor Artifact long spear seemed to have been reborn in his hands, possessing its own life, the spear chasing after the soul, the spear seizing life. And this… was only because he had only used this artifact as an ordinary weapon and had not refined it.
But this wasn’t the end. Yang Kai gripped his spear’s tail and suddenly swept forward.
Directly in front of him, a fourth person had already launched a killing blow towards him.
However, the five of them had acted at the same time, and in the blink of an eye, Yang Kai had already killed three of them. At this moment, his spear swept over, causing the fourth person’s heart to jump. His attack had already weakened by thirty percent, so he didn’t even think about activating his Emperor Qi to protect himself. At the same time, he opened his right hand and a round shield-like artifact appeared, blocking the side of his body as if he wanted to use this defensive artifact to find a sense of security.
* Hong… * The long spear struck the round shield artifact, but the sound of a planet colliding rang out.
Everyone felt a sharp pain in their eardrums as their eyelids twitched. Because of this attack, the round shield artifact suddenly lost its spirituality and shattered into pieces.
A series of gasps rang out, and Fu Bo and Xu Chang Feng almost bit their tongues when they saw this scene. They simply couldn’t believe their eyes. They know that Yang Kai didn’t refine the spear. All of his attacks were based on pure brute force, yet he was able to shatter an Emperor Treasure Grade defensive artifact with a single blow? Just how strong was this brute force?
“Retreat!” Xu Chang Feng shouted almost instinctively. If possible, he had wanted to warn them before Yang Kai killed the three of them, but Yang Kai had acted too quickly, cutting them like vegetables. Three Emperor Realm had died without even giving him time to react.
As he shouted, a pitch-black sword case suddenly appeared behind Xu Chang Feng. It was square and a foot long, but it gave off a destructive aura.
He formed a hand seal with his fingers and a black sword light suddenly shot out from the sword case on his back, arriving behind Yang Kai in the blink of an eye and slashing towards his back, obviously wanting to surround him and save the other.
Even though he was one of the Three Great Forces of the Eastern Region, the Emperor Realm master was still a rare talent. Three people had died at Yang Kai’s hands in a single exchange, and although two of them were from the Underworld Sect, Xu Chang Feng’s heart still ached so much that it felt like it was dripping blood. Therefore, he had used this tactic to force Yang Kai to give up on killing the fourth person.
His thoughts were correct, but he had never expected Yang Kai to act so abnormally and ignore the black sword light that had attacked him from behind. The long spear that had destroyed his defensive artifact swept past the fourth person’s body.
* Chi… * With a loud bang, a rain of blood and minced meat scattered down from the sky. The power of this sweep actually caused the fourth Emperor Realm to explode into a bloody mist, not even leaving behind a corpse.
At the same time, a loud bang rang out, like the sound of a great bell ringing across the world, causing everyone’s eardrums to tremble and their souls to tremble.
Xu Chang Feng looked over and nearly spat out a mouthful of blood, only to see a giant bell half the height of a man suddenly appear behind Yang Kai. On top of the bell, there were mountains and rivers, and the image of birds and beasts slowly flowed, as if it was alive, giving off a profound aura.
His black sword light had actually failed to cut Yang Kai’s body, instead striking the bell, triggering unpredictable consequences.
“Mountain River Bell!” Fu Bo’s eyes flashed with greed. A moment ago, he was still grieving over the death of his Sect’s Emperor Realm master, but in the next moment, all his regrets had disappeared.
This was the Mountain River Bell, the foundation of Great Emperor Yuan Ding’s ascension to the Great Emperor Realm, the Mountain River Bell!
Although he had long heard that the Mountain River Bell and Phoenix True Fire had been obtained by Yang Kai in the Star Fragments Sea, seeing was believing. Only now did Fu Bo truly believe what he had heard.
The sound of the bell has Emperor Charm suppressing the mountains and rivers! It was rumored that this Mountain River Bell had the ability to seal the world, and from the feeling it gave off just now, this rumor seemed to be true. Just a single sound from it had such a miraculous effect, what would it be like if it actively activated its power?
For a moment, Fu Bo’s eyes turned red. If he could obtain the Mountain River Bell today, he might have a chance to become a Great Emperor and become the second Great Emperor Yuan Ding.
A figure rapidly retreated, his face filled with fear. It was the last of the five who had rushed towards Yang Kai. Xu Chang Feng had warned him too late, and the fourth had already been swept into a rain of blood by Yang Kai. This fifth person was the only one who hadn’t died yet and was now fleeing towards the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land group like a stray dog, not even daring to look back.
Previously, the five Emperor Realm from the two great Sects had joined forces to kill Yang Kai, all of them looking as if they were confident they could defeat him, but in just a few breaths of time? It seemed that in less than three breaths of time, Yang Kai had killed four of the five of them. The so-called perfect concealment couldn’t beat a child’s game; how could he not run?
Before he could return to the group of the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land, he heard Yang Kai shout from behind him, followed by the sound of something tearing through the air.
This person turned pale with fright and turned his head, only to see Yang Kai standing in place, ready to throw. The long spear Emperor Treasure that should have been in his hand had already disappeared, but not far behind him, a stream of light was rapidly approaching.
What a madman! The man cursed in his heart. How could he not know what this stream of light was? It was obviously because Yang Kai had thrown his spear and artifact over.
Before the stream of light reached him, the sound of something breaking through the air rang out beside his ear. He couldn’t dodge, it's speed was too fast, he couldn’t block it, and his attacks were too fierce. The blood on this man’s face immediately drained as he shouted, “Holy Master, save me!”
As soon as the words left his mouth, he felt a powerful force slam into his back, followed by a sharp pain as his figure staggered a few steps forward. Then, he saw a long spear shoot out from his chest towards the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land’s camp.
