Boundless Demonic Qi surged out from the sand funnel and madly spread out in all directions. In the blink of an eye, the surrounding ten kilometers was filled with Demonic Qi and it was quickly spreading in all directions.
A few years ago, a Demon Tribulation had broken out in the Southern Domain, and a few years later, Demonic Qi had appeared in the Western Domain, making people think of many things.
Yang Kai even suspected that the Demon Territory’s invasion was about to begin.
In the Thousand Illusion Dream World, he had personally experienced the Demon Territory’s invasion. Although it was just a dream, according to Xiao Die (The Butterfly), everything in the Thousand Illusion Dream World was based on real history. In other words, in ancient times, there really was a great war between humans and demons.
However, in all of history, there was no such person as Yang Kai. He had only participated in the Great War’s instance dungeon as a latecomer.
Although the Demon Race had been defeated in that war, they had not been wiped out. After more than a hundred thousand years of rest and recuperation, were the Demon Race really going to make a comeback? Was the western region the Demon Race’s breakthrough point?
If that was the case, then the previous Demon Tribulation in the Southern Domain could be explained. The Demon Tribulation was just an early preparation for the Demon Race’s invasion of this world. Think about it, if the plan of the Demon Souls back then really succeeded, then there would be countless Demon Race people lurking in every corner of the Southern Domain’s great Sects. When the Western Domain incident erupted, the countless Demon Race people in the Southern Domain would be able to coordinate with each other and completely occupy the Southern Domain and Western Domain. In that case, they would be able to compete with the Star Boundary.
Just thinking about it made him shudder.
At this moment, Yang Kai turned his head to look at Yu Rumeng, his gaze as sharp as an eagle’s, piercing through her starry eyes as if he wanted to see into her heart.
Yu Rumeng had clearly anticipated all of this, otherwise she wouldn’t have said such words.
So who was she and what role did she play in this drama?
She also said that he, who was proficient in the Space Laws, would be of great use in some major event in the future…
Suddenly, Yang Kai seemed to understand something.
“How could there be so much Demonic Qi pouring out?” Xue Zhengmao stared at the scene a hundred kilometers away in disbelief, the beard on his chin trembling as he muttered, “Great Tribulation, great Tribulation!”
The last time a Demon Tribulation had erupted in the Southern Domain, the Southern Domain cultivators had suffered heavy losses and the entire Plain Palace had been destroyed. Now, the situation in the Western Domain was many times worse than before. What should they do?
Gao Zhan’s jinx had come true again, and the speed at which it had come true had caught everyone off guard.
“Then what about the Lords?” Someone asked.
No one could give an answer. The three Great Emperors had fought a great battle in that Secret Boundary and shattered the entire world. After that, no one knew where they had gone, and no one knew if they had fallen into the endless void.
Lan Xun and Lin Yun’er both wore worried looks on their faces. Although Bright Moon Great Emperor and Iron Blood Great Emperor’s cultivations were extremely high, if they really ended up in a void crack, they might lose their way. Unless they could find a way back, even if they had the ability to shatter the void, they wouldn’t be able to escape safely.
“Are there any Sects in the Western Region who can take charge?” Yang Kai asked.
Xue Zhengmao pondered for a moment before saying, “There are a total of three, Star Point Sect, Hundred Barbarians Mountain, and Wind and Cloud Pavilion.”
There was no need to count on Wind and Cloud Pavilion. The last time Yang Kai had gone to Wind and Cloud Pavilion with Lin Yun’er, he had killed many of their masters, so it was likely that they had not yet recovered.
“Why do you ask?” Xue Zhengmao looked at him suspiciously.
Yang Kai said, “Regarding this matter, we need to inform the various great Sects of the Western Regions as soon as possible and have them send their masters over as soon as possible. We need to gather our forces and see if there’s a way to contain the current situation. Otherwise, if this Demonic Qi spreads out, I’m afraid the entire Western Regions will be plunged into misery and suffering.” Yang Kai paused for a moment before continuing, “This may no longer be just a matter of the Western Regions alone. If the Western Regions is really filled with Demonic Qi, then the entire Star Boundary will suffer. The other three regions will have to send their forces here. I can arrange a Space Array here and bring the masters from the three regions here.”
Hearing this, Xue Zhengmao’s eyes lit up and he nodded, “You’re right.” When he saw so much Demon Qi surge out just now, he had been somewhat confused, but now that he heard Yang Kai’s words, his thoughts became clear and he immediately arranged for a few Emperor Realm from Star Soul Palace to go to the various great Sects of the Western Regions to inform them.
Several figures immediately flew away.
While everyone was talking, the boundless Demonic Qi continued to spread out for several dozen kilometers, but it didn’t slow down at all.
Yang Kai’s expression became extremely solemn, and after a long silence he said, “I’ll go over there and see if I can destroy that funnel. If I’m not mistaken, it should be a Void Corridor that connects to… the Demon Territory!”
“The Demon Territory!” Xue Zhengmao and the others were shocked. Obviously, they knew what kind of place the Demon Territory was. Although they had never experienced the great war between the Human Race and Demon Race in ancient times, Star Soul Palace was a long-standing Overlord Sect, so there must be some related ancient books in their Sect.
Previously, they had only thought that the situation here was similar to the Demon Tribulation in the Southern Domain and that it was the eruption of the sealed Demonic Qi, but after hearing Yang Kai’s words, they realized the seriousness of the problem.
If the Void Corridor where the funnel was located really connected to the Demon Territory, it would be far more terrifying than they had imagined.
“Demonic Qi is sinister, how can you enter it and remain clear-headed?” Xiao Yuyang asked worriedly. Yang Kai’s proposal was indeed correct. If the funnel really connected to the Demon Territory, as long as it was destroyed, the source of Demonic Qi would naturally be cut off.
However, the funnel was located in a place where the Demonic Qi was the densest. If Yang Kai really entered it, he would likely lose his consciousness and become a Demon.
“I have my own ways, Elder Xiao doesn’t need to worry,” Yang Kai didn’t explain too much and said decisively, “I’ll be back soon.”
Without giving them any time to react, his figure flickered and he disappeared.
In the blink of an eye, he had rushed into a place filled with Demonic Qi. This Demonic Qi, which was like a poisonous snake or scorpion to ordinary people, was completely useless to Yang Kai.
After all, not only was his body’s resistance extremely strong, but his dantian was also sealed with the pure Demonic Qi of an Ancient Demon. He just hated such an environment and was not affected by it.
After determining the direction, he sped towards the funnel.
However, after flying a short distance, he suddenly turned around and shouted, “Who is it!”
Behind him, the sound of a dress fluttering could be heard. Obviously, someone had followed him.
A fragrant breeze blew over and a graceful figure appeared in Yang Kai’s field of vision. Yu Rumeng looked at him with a smile and stopped three inches away from him, her tall and soft chest almost touching his.
“Why are you here?” Yang Kai frowned, “Get out.”
Yu Rumeng smiled lightly, “Didn’t I say that from now on, I only need to guard you?”
Yang Kai said angrily, “Times have changed, don’t you know what kind of place this is? If you run in here, can you bear… En? How did you come unscathed?” Yang Kai suddenly stared at her in disbelief.
The reason why he wasn’t affected by this Demonic Qi was because of his powerful physique and the seal on his dantian. How could Yu Rumeng not be affected at all? Yang Kai didn’t see any signs of her circulating her Qi to resist the Demonic Qi’s corrosion, but with her Second-Order Emperor Realm cultivation, she was like a fish in water in this boundless Demonic Qi.
Yu Rumeng’s eyes curved into crescents, “What can a mere Demonic Qi do to me? I have my ways, so don’t worry about me.”
“I’m not worried about you,” Yang Kai spat on her face and muttered, “You can follow me, just don’t disturb me.”
At this time, Yang Kai didn’t have the time to argue with her. He just wanted to see if he could destroy the Void Corridor where the funnel was.
Yu Rumeng couldn’t help nodding, “I won’t disturb you.”
Yang Kai stared at her suspiciously for a moment before continuing forward.
A moment later, they arrived at the funnel, and as far as the eye could see, this place had really become a Void Corridor with a steady stream of Demonic Qi pouring out from it.
Yang Kai was suddenly at a loss.
This funnel was originally the entrance to the independent Secret Territory, but he hadn’t noticed any Demonic Qi in that Secret Territory, not to mention that the world had already collapsed, so where did this Demonic Qi come from?
Could it be that this world was the middle between the Demon Territory and the Star Boundary? After this world was destroyed, the Demon Territory and the Star Boundary were truly connected.
Thinking so, Yang Kai’s expression changed. If that was really the case, then the Iron Blood Great Emperor and Bright Moon Great Emperor had done something wrong!
Using his Divine Sense, Yang Kai’s Space Laws fluctuated wildly as he stretched out his hand towards the funnel.
Suddenly, he felt a sharp pain in his head, as if it was about to explode, causing him to be unable to continue. Turning his head, he angrily shouted, “What are you doing?”
Standing at the side, Yu Rumeng’s tender body trembled, obviously enduring a great deal of pain, her voice trembling as she said, “No, nothing.”
“Do you really think I don’t dare to kill you?” Yang Kai’s expression was fierce like a crazed beast.
Yu Rumeng didn’t say anything and just smiled at him.
“I’ll give you three breaths of time to stop, otherwise you’ll have to bear the consequences!” Yang Kai stared straight at her, his eyes seemingly wanting to eat her alive.
Yu Rumeng slowly shook her head, her expression somewhat sorrowful.
Three breaths passed in the blink of an eye, and Yang Kai’s eyes flashed with determination as he shouted, “You’re courting death!”
Saying so, he raised his hand and slapped her.
Frightening dragon might filled the air as the palm which he had sent out seemed to transform into a dragon claw that ruthlessly slammed into Yu Rumeng’s chest.
The sound of bones breaking could be heard clearly, and Yu Rumeng’s face paled as she spat out a mouthful of blood, causing the veil covering her face to become blood red as she flew out like a broken kite.
The pain in his mind disappeared in an instant, but Yang Kai’s heart felt like it was being gripped by an invisible hand, the pain so great he could barely breathe.
