The long spear that Yang Kai had thrown directly pierced through this Emperor Realm master’s body, taking a step ahead of him. The several masters from the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land who were blocking his path all retreated in fear, not daring to face it head-on.
As the long spear flew through the air, it left behind a black mark that lingered for a long time.
This strike actually tore through space.
Everyone was stunned as a chill ran up their spines from the soles of their feet to the top of their heads. This was the first time they had witnessed such terrifying brute force.
“Holy Master…” The Emperor Realm master whose chest and abdomen had been pierced by the spear barely managed to reach a distance of a hundred feet in front of Xu Chang Feng. He coughed up a large mouthful of blood and weakly stretched out his hand towards Xu Chang Feng, as if trying to grasp his last chance of survival, but in the end it was all in vain. His body went limp and he fell to the ground, his flesh and blood splashing everywhere.
Five breaths, five Emperor Realm were killed by Yang Kai in just five breaths of time, before they could even test Yang Kai’s true strength, they were crushed like ants.
The world fell silent as the several dozen Emperor Realm masters from the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land and Underworld Sect gulped, feeling like they were dreaming.
Yang Kai’s figure flickered as he stood atop the constantly spinning Mountain River Bell, his black hair fluttering in the wind as he arrogantly shouted, “Yang Kai is here, who’s courting death?” No one dared to look him in the eye as they quickly averted their eyes.
A dozen kilometers away, Tang Sheng and Qian Xiuying were both stunned, unable to accept what they were seeing.
This was a Second-Order Emperor Realm master? How could this be a Second-Order Emperor Realm master? Even a Third-Order Emperor Realm master couldn’t possibly possess such divine might, right? Although they had long known that there was a kind of person in this world who could fight across realms and kill powerful enemies, it wasn’t like they had never seen such a person before.
The former Holy Childs of the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land, Zhang Hao and Zhang Xian, the disciple of Underworld Sect’s Sect Master Fu Bo, Yin Le Sheng, the son of the Ghost Great Emperor Yao Si, as well as Chi Gui, were all of these types of people. They were often able to defeat opponents who were a minor realm higher than them and even have a chance to kill them. Such existences were known as geniuses.
As long as they were given enough time and space to grow, there would definitely be a place for them in the future.
However, it was only now that Tang Sheng and Qian Xiuying discovered that the so-called geniuses were actually pale in comparison. Amongst the geniuses, there were even more formidable geniuses. Although Yang Kai had killed five First-Order Emperor Realm with his Second-Order Emperor Realm cultivation and couldn’t be considered to have crossed realms to fight, the previous scene was far more shocking than seeing a First-Order Emperor Realm kill a Second-Order Emperor Realm.
No wonder Zhang Hao, Zhang Xian, and Yin Le Sheng had all died at his hands. As the saying goes, there is always a higher mountain.
Lan He’s beautiful eyes were filled with a brilliant light, her heart filled with excitement. When she had broken her promise to Yang Kai just now, she had felt extremely guilty, and after seeing him surrounded by so many people, she had thought he would die.
If Yang Kai had really died outside the Heavenly Wolf Valley, then today’s events would have been a knot in her heart for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, her cultivation had been sealed by Tang Sheng and Qian Xiuying, so she couldn’t even help him. She could only stand here and watch helplessly, the kind of suffering that came from her heart was truly painful.
Turning her head, Lan He stared at Tang Sheng with a complicated look, “Master, if he survives, will you regret it?”
Hearing this, Tang Sheng’s body trembled. He knew that Lan He was still very dissatisfied with his previous choice and had some complaints, but because he was her master, she couldn’t say anything more or ask for more. He simply said, “Since i has made my choice, i won’t regret it. What’s more, do you think he can survive?” It was undeniable that the wanton slaughter he had experienced in just a few breaths of time had shocked everyone’s hearts. It was undeniable that Yang Kai was definitely one of the top geniuses in the Star Boundary. He was only a Second-Order Emperor Realm, yet he was already so powerful. If he were to break through to the Third-Order Emperor Realm, what would happen? At that time, he would probably be able to compete with Li Wuyi.
If they could befriend such an existence in advance, it would be of great benefit to Heavenly Wolf Valley, even if he was from the Southern Region.
On the other hand, Yang Kai had indeed asked the Heavenly Wolf Valley for help. As long as they agreed to take him to find Spirit Beast Island, the Heavenly Wolf Valley would naturally be able to establish a good relationship with him. If the Heavenly Wolf Valley had any requests in the future, would they be afraid that he would ignore them? A small price was enough to earn a generous return. Who wouldn’t like such a deal?
That was why Lan He had asked this question, instinctively wanting to make friends with a future supreme master, but Heavenly Wolf Valley had missed this opportunity.
But the prerequisite for all of this… was that he could survive!
This time, the Buddhist Heaven Holy Land and Underworld Sect had sent out all of their forces. Even if five First-Order Emperor Realm died, it wouldn’t affect the overall situation because they still had two Third-Order and seven or eight Second-Order Emperor Realm!
Although Yang Kai’s performance was amazing, the outcome was already decided.
Lan He was rendered speechless by this. She asked herself, in this situation, would Yang Kai be able to survive? He had already killed five people from the other side, and all of them were Emperor Realm. This was definitely a situation where they would fight to the death.
In today’s battle, either Yang Kai was killed here, or the two great Sects were destroyed, but anyone with eyes could see who was stronger and who was weaker.
“I bet he can live!” A voice suddenly came from the side.
Tang Sheng and Qian Xiuying, who were focused on observing the battlefield, were both shocked because they hadn’t noticed anyone approaching. Although most of their attention had been diverted, it still showed how strong this person was.
However, after hearing this person’s voice, the two of them quickly understood.
This was because the one who said this was Chi Gui, the strongest of the younger generation in Ahan Temple. His red hair and red eyes were his most obvious mark. He was someone who loved to fight and was bloodthirsty. Everyone in the Eastern Region had a headache because no one wanted to be targeted by him.
If it weren’t for the fact that Lan He was a woman, he would have long since come to Heavenly Wolf Valley to fight her.
“Elder Chi thinks so highly of him?” Tang Sheng raised his brow. According to seniority, Chi Gui was his junior. Tang Sheng and Ahan's Temple Master were both characters from the same generation, but Chi Gui was still an Emperor Realm and an Elder of Ahan Temple, so his future achievements would not be lower than Tang Sheng’s. Tang Sheng was not qualified to call him Nephew, so he could only call him Elder Chi.
Chi Gui shrugged, not answering Tang Sheng’s question, instead turning to Lan He and asking, “Does Junior Sister Lan think he will die?”
Lan He shook her head, “I don’t know, I hope he can live.”
Chi Gui let out a frivolous whistle as he observed the battlefield with great interest and grinned, “Valley Master Tang, how about we make a bet?”
Tang Sheng’s eyes flashed, “What bet?”
Chi Gui grinned and said, “Of course it’s a bet…” Halfway through his words, he suddenly laughed and shook his head, “Forget it, there’s no point.”
Tang Sheng asked, “Does Elder Chi really think he can survive?” Although Chi Gui didn’t finish his sentence, how could Tang Sheng not know what he was trying to say? He just wanted to bet on Yang Kai’s life.
Chi Gui nodded, “I believe in my own feelings.”
Tang Sheng asked, “Then why aren’t you betting?” This question wasn’t because Tang Sheng was a gambler, but rather because he was curious about Chi Gui's attitude.
Chi Gui smiled awkwardly, “When a giant elephant fights with a pack of lions, all ants have to do is watch. What qualifications do they have to gamble with their lives? Isn’t that just overestimating themselves?”
As soon as he said this, Tang Sheng, Qian Xiuying, and even Lan He all stared at him in shock.
Chi Gui was the strongest of Ahan Temple’s younger generation. Even in the entire Eastern Region and even the entire Star Boundary, he was one of the few young talents. In the Eastern Region, only Yao Si who is someone of his age would be able to suppress him, but he was the son of Ghost Great Emperor.
Such a genius must have thought highly of himself and was unwilling to submit to others, but at this moment, he was comparing Yang Kai to a giant elephant and calling himself an ant.
If they hadn’t heard it with their own ears, no one would have believed it.
If you’re an ant, then what are all the living beings in this Star Boundary? Dust?
Chi Gui’s red eyes narrowed slightly as he said lightly, “Does Valley Master Tang think I overestimate him?”
Tang Sheng returned to his senses and smiled, “Elder Chi is too modest.”
“Modest…” Chi Gui muttered to himself. Perhaps he was being modest, but this feeling couldn’t be wrong. When Yang Kai had asked him how he would choose, he had felt that if he really fought with Yang Kai, he would definitely die! His fate wouldn’t be any better than those five.
After seeing him take action, this feeling became even stronger, almost as if he was completely convinced.
Tang Sheng was shocked, “Elder Chi means that the two great forces are in trouble today?”
Chi Gui smiled and said, “I didn’t say that, I just said that guy will live.” As he followed Fu Bo and Xu Chang Feng, he faintly felt that something was wrong, as if the two great forces weren’t just showing off their strength.
However, he also couldn’t figure out why these two great forces had gone all out to deal with Yang Kai. This was already giving him a great deal of face, so how could there be any hidden forces?
Even if Yang Kai managed to escape today, his fate wouldn’t be good and both sides would suffer heavy losses. This was Chi Gui’s judgment, but he didn’t say anything.
Tang Sheng lightly said, “Then let’s see if Elder Chi’s judgment is correct. This Tang still feels that his chances of survival are slim.” Although they didn’t make a bet, both of them had already expressed their views. As for Yang Kai’s life or death, they could only verify it with their own eyes.
While these people were talking, Yang Kai stood proudly on the Mountain River Bell, looking down on everyone present, none of them daring to step forward and accept death. This scene was truly shocking.
Seeing them remain motionless, Yang Kai grinned, revealing his white fangs, “Since everyone is so reserved, this King will not let it go.”
Turning his gaze towards the direction of the Underworld Sect, his eyes filled with murderous intent, as if no one else was present.
Being stared at by him, Fu Bo felt a chill run down his spine and shouted, “Sacrificial Banner!”
More than a dozen Emperor Realm masters from the Underworld Sect summoned their artifacts, all of which were Myriad Soul Banner and Blood Sea Banner.
