It wasn’t until this moment that Yang Kai could clearly see this person’s face. His face was yellow and his skin was thin, as if he had a bad influence, but he was undoubtedly a Second-Order Emperor Realm. However, the billowing Demonic Qi around his body clearly showed his identity as an outsider.
Another Demon Consciousness!
After being locked down by Yang Kai’s Space Force, he didn’t panic in the slightest and simply stared coldly at Yang Kai, his eyes flashing with determination as he coldly shouted, “Demon Race is immortal!”
As soon as these words came out, Yang Kai knew something was wrong, so he quickly raised his hand to grab him, wanting to completely imprison him, but it was too late. The sound of something shattering suddenly rang out from this person’s body, and soon after, this person’s vitality rapidly receded, the light in his eyes also dimming.
Yang Kai froze in place, his expression twitching slightly.
Li Wuyi walked over, looked at him, and then at the man, “Dead?”
Yang Kai said solemnly, “Break his own meridians!”
Li Wuyi was shocked, “So decisive!”
As the saying goes, better to die than to live, so neither Yang Kai nor Li Wuyi had expected that this fellow would choose to commit suicide as soon as he was captured. Obviously, he didn’t want to fall into the hands of his enemies to avoid unnecessary torture and pain. This was a Second-Order Emperor Realm master, not some random dog or cat.
This was the first time Li Wuyi had encountered something like this, but it wasn’t the first time Yang Kai had seen it.
When he had chased Lei Gu to the Southern Swamp and lured him into the encirclement of Fan Wu and the others, Lei Gu had also said those words before he self-destructed.
Demon Race is Immortal!
What a similar scene. Yang Kai had finally witnessed the savagery of the Demon Race. Each and every one of them simply didn’t care about their own lives, casually self-destructing or severing their own meridians as if they weren’t seeking death, but rather doing something glorious and noble.
Since the man was already dead, there was naturally nothing they could ask. The two of them carried the corpse back and threw it on the ground. After glancing at it for a moment, Protector Chu said, “I remember this man. He is an Elder from Star Point Sect. He attacked me before, but I didn’t expect him to chase after me.”
Xiao Yuyang looked into the distance and said meaningfully, “I’m afraid he’s not the only one chasing us.”
Although they couldn’t detect any auras, since an Elder from Star Point Sect had appeared, it was likely that the rest of the people from Star Point Sect were hiding nearby, and even the Demon Race from the Western Region’s other Sects would rush over to observe.
Although the Western Region was desolate, the Martial Dao was not weak. The number and quality of the Emperor Realm masters was roughly the same as the other three regions. If their previous guess was correct and the entire Western Region had already fallen, then the current situation was not good.
This was equivalent to making an enemy out of all the masters in the Western Region! Even with an existence like Li Wuyi guarding this place, it didn’t add much sense of security. After all, they had Pseudo Emperor like Li Wuyi on their side, so who could guarantee that the other party didn’t have one? The ones who had captured Yao Lin and Lin Yun’er before were all Pseudo Emperor masters who had yet to show themselves.
Everyone could only pray that these Great Emperors would return from the Sand Funnel as soon as possible so that they could have a backbone.
While everyone was on guard, Yang Kai suddenly let out a soft cry and stared at the area enveloped by the Demonic Qi.
“You noticed?” Li Wuyi also looked forward.
Yang Kai frowned, “Since Senior says so, it seems my perception is correct.”
Li Wuyi nodded, “The rate at which the Demonic Qi is spreading has slowed down.”
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up, “It seems that the Demonic Qi pouring out from the tunnel isn’t endless.” If that was the case, the situation wasn’t too critical. Before this, he had been worried that the Western Regions would be completely covered by Demonic Qi. After all, if that was the case, the Western Regions would really be finished. However, from the looks of it, it would be difficult for this Demonic Qi to cover the entire Western Regions. Although the surrounding area was not small, compared to the entire Western Regions, it was still a drop in the ocean.
Xiao Yuyang, Xue Zhengmao, and the others also noticed this and couldn’t help becoming excited. After waiting for several days, they finally received some good news.
Just as everyone had observed, the rate at which the Demonic Qi spread had indeed slowed down significantly, and as time passed, these signs became more obvious. Three days later, the Demonic Qi finally stopped spreading and instead stabilized, covering a radius of about two hundred thousand kilometers.
At that moment, a faint disturbance came from the Demon Earth.
Everyone’s expression became serious as they listened attentively.
A moment later, Xue Zhengmao frowned, “Why does it feel like something is coming from there?”
Li Wuyi’s expression became solemn as he said, “It’s not 'like', but they’ve really come, and there are quite a few of them!”
Hearing this, everyone’s expressions became vigilant, but at the same time, they were also curious as to what it was that could move about freely in such an environment.
With a rumbling sound, it was like a thunderclap rolling across the ground, or the sound of countless running footsteps.
After waiting for a long time, everyone suddenly saw small figures in the Demonic Qi. These figures were about two to three feet tall and were round like watermelons.
However, these strange creatures were obviously a type of life form, but each of them was extremely ugly. The reason why their bodies were so round was because each of them had a round belly and their exposed skin was a dark color, as if they were a gathering of evil and chaos.
“What is this?” Lan Xun’s beautiful eyes widened in surprise as she stared at this group of strange creatures. This was the first time she had seen such an existence, and although it was a bit ugly, it was still quite interesting to look at, especially after the number had reached a certain level.
“Demon Race!” Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed.
The round and short figure charged forward without any regard for their own life, and the scene in front of him brought back some unpleasant memories.
However, in his memories, the Demons were either red or green, while the ones in front of him were black.
Whether it was red or green, they were all known as Explosive Demons in the Demon Territory because their method of attack was to self-destruct their bodies. Their cultivation was not at the Dao Realm, but after exploding, they could produce unimaginable power. When the Red Demon burst, they could cause massive damage, while when the Green Demon burst, they could release a poisonous Demonic Qi. Even the Demon Race itself was not willing to be contaminated by the Green Demon Poison.
If even Red Demon and Green Demon could explode, what about these Black Demon?
Even if he used his toes to think, Yang Kai could still guess how they attacked.
“These are also considered Demon Race?” Xiao Yuyang’s expression was strange. If all of the Demon Race were like this, he alone could flatten the entire Demon Territory.
Yang Kai said solemnly, “The Demon Territory's Hundreds of Races each have their own unique innate Divine Abilities. These should be the Explosive Demons, and they… will explode!”
“Explode?” Xue Zhengmao frowned.
No one noticed Yu Rumeng suddenly glancing over at Yang Kai in surprise, but she quickly withdrew her gaze and quietly sat down to meditate.
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “Xue Friend shouldn’t underestimate these Explosive Demons. Since they are able to appear here, it means that the Demon Territory really is connected to the Star Boundary. The Sand Funnel might be the passage between the two Great Worlds, and they are only the first wave of vanguards. If we can’t destroy that passage, more Demon Race will come to the Star Boundary.”
Xue Zhengmao’s expression became solemn, “It seems that we can only hope that those several great masters succeed and retreat.”
While they were talking, a series of rumbling sounds suddenly came from below.
Looking over, Yang Kai’s words had come true.
The round bodies of these Black Demons all exploded one after another, their power not too great, but after they exploded, a massive amount of Demonic Qi spread out from their shattered flesh, dyeing the ground black, causing the situation to suddenly worsen.
Li Wuyi’s expression changed as he asked, “The Demon Territory wouldn’t want to use such a method to invade the Star Boundary, would they?” The place where the Black Demons had exploded had been reduced to a Demon Earth. If the Demon Territory had enough Black Demon, they wouldn’t even need to send out any powerful masters. All they needed to do was constantly send out Black Demon.
In any case, this kind of Demon Race had a low status in the Demon Territory, so no one cared about their life or death. They themselves existed for the final explosion.
However, this was obviously impossible. No matter how many Black Demons there were, they wouldn’t be able to destroy the entire Star Boundary. Yang Kai secretly guessed that the Demon Territory wanted to first seize a piece of territory in the Star Boundary and use it as their foundation before gradually devouring the entire Star Boundary.
A series of explosions rang out, and it was unknown how many Black Demons had exploded. Everyone looked around and saw that the Black Demons continued to spread out, constantly expanding the range of the Demon Earth.
Yang Kai took a deep breath and slowly said, “Everyone, although it shouldn’t have much effect, I think we should try to stop them or at least slow them down.”
Everyone nodded lightly.
Yang Kai said, “Then everyone must be careful not to be corroded by the Demonic Qi. If you notice anything wrong, retreat immediately.”
Saying so, he was the first to rush over.
In the blink of an eye, Yang Kai had already arrived at the edge of the Demon Earth. Reaching out his hand, Yang Kai summoned the Million Sword and sent them flying forward.
The giant sword light cut into the swarm of Black Demons, killing hundreds and thousands of them without a sound. However, even after they died, they still exploded and released their Demonic Qi. This situation was just as Yang Kai had said before, even if he tried to stop them, it wouldn’t have much effect, because killing these Black Demons wouldn’t solve the problem of Demonic Qi pervading the air. At most, it would slow down the rate at which the Demonic Land was expanding.
But at this moment, this was the only thing Yang Kai could do.
