A moment later, Yang Kai helplessly raised his head.
Yu Rumeng’s Knowledge Sea’s defense was incredibly strong, so even if she was unconscious, Yang Kai couldn’t break through it. If he tried to force his way in, it was likely he would wake her up. After trying for a long time, he could only give up.
Yang Kai was somewhat at a loss. Yu Rumeng was only a Second-Order Emperor Realm cultivator, so how could she possess such a powerful Spiritual Energy? From her Knowledge Sea’s defences, Yang Kai could tell that her Soul cultivation was even stronger than an ordinary Third-Order Emperor Realm master.
Since he couldn’t even break through her defences, he naturally couldn’t pry into her secrets.
Yang Kai could only suppress this matter and take out some pills. First, he opened Yu Rumeng’s small mouth and stuffed a few pills into her mouth, helping her take them before quietly meditating.
Time slowly passed.
After a full day and night, Yu Rumeng finally let out a soft moan, her brow furrowing as her long eyelashes fluttered and she slowly opened her eyes.
Seeing Yang Kai looking at her with a smile, Yu Rumeng blinked her eyes, her expression somewhat blank, obviously still unable to react, habitually flashing Yang Kai a smile.
But soon, she remembered everything that had happened before she fell unconscious, and her pretty face couldn’t help changing, becoming extremely cold as she fiercely pushed Yang Kai, trying to push her up from his lap.
Yang Kai’s arrogant attitude and unfounded insults had really hurt her.
Yang Kai grinned and pressed her back down.
Yu Rumeng struggled a few times, but how could she compare to Yang Kai’s brute strength? She could only angrily say, “Let go!”
“Alright, alright,” Yang Kai gently comforted, “Don’t be so excited, you haven’t recovered yet.”
“I told you to let go of me!” Yu Rumeng stared at him coldly.
Yang Kai rubbed his nose and his expression suddenly became serious, “Rumeng, I’m sorry, I was wrong before, don’t be angry.”
This sincere apology caught Yu Rumeng off guard, causing her anger to dissipate completely. Suddenly, she was at a loss for what to do, her eyelashes trembling as she stared blankly for a long time before asking, “What do you mean?”
His previous attitude had been extremely firm, unwilling to apologize even if they were to die together, and even after she had given in, he had not compromised in the slightest. Now, with such a sudden change, Yu Rumeng really couldn’t understand what Yang Kai was thinking.
In comparison, Yu Rumeng felt that this guy was more like a madman.
Yang Kai looked at her tenderly, not saying a word as he leaned down to kiss her.
This was undoubtedly the most impactful response.
Yu Rumeng’s body immediately went limp, no longer resisting.
After a long time, Yang Kai finally let go of her and smiled mischievously.
Yu Rumeng wiped her mouth and angrily shouted, “You bully!”
This little girl’s attitude made Yang Kai extremely amused, and he couldn’t help laughing loudly, “It’s all your own fault. Who told you to plant some kind of bullshit Heart Seal Secret Technique on me, otherwise who would have known you were Yu Rumeng?”
Yu Rumeng snorted, “Don’t try to act like i'm the one taking advantage of you. In the future, you’ll have to laugh secretly.”
“What do you mean?” Yang Kai raised his brow.
Yu Rumeng smiled and said proudly, “You’ll know in the future, but now… don’t ask so many questions.” Pausing for a moment, she continued, “Don’t insult me like that in the future, I can’t accept it.”
Yang Kai nodded repeatedly, “I understand, I won’t insult you anymore.”
Since he had already succeeded, there was naturally no need for him to seek trouble himself.
After receiving this response, Yu Rumeng leaned into his embrace with a satisfied look on her face. After a moment of silence, she suddenly raised her head and stared at Yang Kai’s profile, the happiness and smile on her face slowly fading.
“What’s wrong?” Yang Kai lowered his head and asked.
Yu Rumeng stretched out her hand and gently caressed Yang Kai’s cheek, muttering, “I don’t know why, but I suddenly feel like you’re far away from me.”
Yang Kai’s expression remained unchanged as he smiled lightly, “I’m right here.”
Yu Rumeng slowly shook her head, this feeling was indescribable. Although Yang Kai was right in front of her, she still felt like she was far away.
As night fell, the three Great Holy Spirits of the Ancient Land, Monster Kings, and the Stone Puppet Clan arrived one after another. The cultivators from the various great Sects of the North Region also gradually gathered towards High Heaven Palace.
Inside High Heaven Palace's hall, hundreds of Emperor Realm gathered in a chaotic mess. Demonic Qi surged from the Western Region and the opening of the World Entrance was something they had learned from Hua Qingsi. They also knew that this time, even the Great Emperors were on the move. Although the Northern Domain were far away, they couldn't stay out of it, under High Heaven Palace’s orders, no one dared to disobey. All of them quickly gathered their forces and gathered at High Heaven Palace.
However, to most cultivators in this world, the existence of the Demon Race was simply too far away, so far away that many people had never even heard of it. The people from the North Region were slightly better off; after all, the last time Yang Kai take them to the South Region’s Plain Palace, they had personally witnessed the power of the Demon Race, but they knew nothing about the true Demon Race.
It wasn’t until the Luan Feng, Fan Wu, and Cang Gou led the Mosnter Kings of the Ancient Land to the main hall that the clamorous noise subsided.
This was a terrifying force, three Holy Spirits and thirty-six Monster Kings comparable to Third-Order Emperor Realm masters. No matter where they were, it was impossible to ignore them. Most of the North Region’s Emperor Realm masters were only First or Second-Order, with only a few Third-Order ones. Under this torrential Monster Qi, everyone remained silent.
Although the main hall was large enough to accommodate several hundred people, there weren’t that many seats. When Luan Feng and the others arrived, they immediately walked forward and the crowd immediately parted to make way for them. Those who had already sat down also stood up and gave up their seats.
The group of Monster Race masters from the Wild Ancient Land each found a place to sit, each of them exuding an imposing aura.
Luan Feng glanced around and asked Hua Qingsi, “Where is Yang Kai?”
Hua Qingsi smiled bitterly, “The Palace Master said he would be here soon.”
Luan Feng nodded slightly and said no more.
A moment later, a figure appeared outside the hall. By the time everyone came back to their senses, a person had appeared in front of the hall. Looking up, it was Yang Kai.
Yang Kai looked around and saw Li Jiao, Mi Qi, Bing Yun, Ji Yao, Su Yan, Shan Qingluo, Chi Yue, Ai Ou, Gui Zu, and the others…
One by one, familiar or unfamiliar faces appeared in front of him. Yang Kai nodded slightly and said in a low voice, “I’m afraid all of you know why I summoned you here. If you have any questions, you can ask them now. This Palace Master will tell you everything I know. Once we arrive at the Western Regions, I’m afraid none of you will have a chance to ask any more questions.”
Luan Feng was the first to speak, “The Demon Territory’s passage really opened in the Western Regions?”
This should be the question everyone was most concerned about. Although Hua Qingsi had informed everyone of this, no one could believe it. How could the Two Worlds Passageway be opened so easily? If it was so easy, the Demon Territory would have long since invaded, so how could they have waited until today?
Yang Kai nodded seriously, “Absolutely real.” Stretching out his hand, he poked his eyes and said, “I saw it with my own eyes, not just me, but also Iron Blood, Serene Soul, and Beast Martial Great Emperor. Even now, Beast Martial Great Emperor is still guarding that place, just in case.”
With these words, the atmosphere in the hall suddenly became solemn.
When they had first arrived here, everyone had been hoping that Yang Kai had made a mistake, but now that they heard that the three Great Emperors were present at that time, they were certain that this was the case.
Even if Yang Kai was mistaken, could it be that all three Great Emperors were mistaken?
“How… is the strength of the Demon Race?” Fan Wu asked.
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before saying, “I don’t know the specifics, I only know that the Demon Race has existences that are not inferior to Great Emperors. They call those existences Demon Saints, but I don’t know how many of them there are. Below Demon Saints are Demon Kings, comparable to us Emperor Realm, below Demon Kings are Demon Chief Commander and Demon Commander, Corresponding to Principle Source Stage and Void King Realm. As for the various Demon Soldier… I’m afraid there are too many to count.”
Li Jiao said, “Palace Master Yang, Demonic Qi is extremely corrosive. Even an Emperor Realm master cannot easily be contaminated by it. If we were to fight the Demon Race, how could we defend ourselves?”
These words hit the nail on the head and immediately resonated with everyone. The last time everyone had gone to the Plain Palace in the Southern Domain, they had seen many cultivators who had been contaminated by Demonic Qi and had been reduced to Demon Race cultivators. Even now, they still felt a lingering fear.
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Although Demonic Qi is powerful, it is not invincible. If you want to resist it, it is simple. The more abundant your Blood Qi is, the stronger your resistance to Demonic Qi will be. In the future, when you fight against the Demon Race, you must remember this.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “In addition, each of the Demon Race’s Hundreds of Races has their own unique innate Divine Abilities, such as Sand Demon, who is most proficient in the Earth Escape Technique. Who knows when they will be able to hide under your feet and launch a fatal attack while you are unprepared. There is also the Shadow Demon Race, which is the most proficient in assassination. When they reveal their weapons, it means your life is on the line…”
Yang Kai went on, explaining everything he knew about the Demon Race. Everyone in the hall listened attentively, not daring to miss anything.
After all, at some point, Yang Kai’s words would become their life-saving straw.
Luan Feng and the others couldn’t help clicking their tongues in wonder. She, Fan Wu, and the others had obtained the inheritance from their Distant Ancestor's memories, so they knew more about the Demon Race than the average person, but they were far from Yang Kai’s level.
Yang Kai’s understanding of the Demon Race was as if he had been to the Demon Territory before and had interacted with them before. This made Luan Feng and the others puzzled, wondering how Yang Kai knew so much.
As time passed, Yang Kai stood in front of the main hall, talking non-stop. Below him, hundreds of Emperor Realm seemed to be like a disciples listening to the Dao, each of them wearing an extremely sincere expression.
After a full four hours, Yang Kai finally stopped speaking and said with a solemn expression, “There is one more thing I must tell everyone. The western region not only have the opening of the Two Worlds Passageway, but the invasion of the Demon Territory and Demon Race has also caused the situation in the western region to deteriorate.”
