“Yang Kai has become a devil!”
Wen Zishan took out a jade slip and used his Divine Sense to examine its contents, a look of disbelief appearing on his face. This jade slip was sent by Gao Xueting, and it was branded with Gao Xueting’s Divine Sense, so it was obviously not fake. Not to mention, Gao Xueting had also explained in detail what had happened that day, so it was difficult for Wen Zishan to not believe her.
After being absent-minded for a long time, he called Chen Qian over and asked her to make a trip to Tiger Roar City to ask Gao Xueting.
In another city, Yang Yan was also holding a jade slip in her hand, her brow furrowed as she muttered, “What the hell is this little brat doing? Why would he suddenly fight with Senior Iron Blood and even go berserk and become devil?”
The group of Emperor Realm who had come to ask for help saw her expression change and didn’t dare disturb her. A moment later, Yang Yan summoned an Emperor Realm and asked him to go to Tiger Roar City to inquire about the situation.
“Yang Kai’s Bedevilment, what do the two of you think?” Inside the hall, Luan Feng stared at Fan Wu and Cang Gou as she asked.
“When did this happen?” Cang Gou’s eyes widened in shock.
“I just received the news,” Luan Feng’s expression became serious.
Fan Wu said, “I also received some news about what happened yesterday.”
“Is that boy really demonized?” Cang Gou couldn’t believe his ears.
Fan Wu replied, “The news came from the Iron Blood Greaat Emperor, so it shouldn’t be false.”
In a daze, Cang Gou muttered to himself, “That boy can also become a Demon? That’s impossible, are you mistaken?”
Luan Feng and Fan Wu both slowly shook their heads, the former saying, “This matter is of great importance, it can’t be wrong.”
Hearing this, Cang Gou sighed, “That’s a pity…” Although Yang Kai often went to the Wild Ancient Land to make things difficult for them, Cang Gou still admired him quite a bit. It was rare to see such a talented young man. Now that he had become a Demon, his future prospects would be bleak.
Luan Feng said, “Whether he has become a Demon or not, he is still related to the descendant of Heavenly Punishment. Since the Heavenly Punishment’s descendant entered the Blood Gate, there has been no news of her since then. It has been more than ten years, so perhaps she will soon come out of seclusion. You all know how much the Heavenly Punishment’s descendant values Yang Kai. If Yang Kai is in a bad situation, I wonder what her attitude will be.”
Fan Wu nodded solemnly, “Lady Feng is right. In Lady Feng’s opinion, how should we handle this matter?”
Luan Feng said, “Find his whereabouts as soon as possible and send him to the Wild Ancient Land. At that time, even if the Heavenly Punishment descendant come out of seclusion, she won’t blame us.”
Fan Wu nodded, “That’s a good idea, it’s settled then.”
Luan Feng said, “Then I’ll have Ying Fei make a trip to Tiger Roar City to inquire about the situation and see where Yang Kai escaped to.”
“There’s no time to lose, let’s go now!”
For a time, people from all over came to Tiger Roar City to inquire about what had happened a day ago, causing Tiger Roar City to become extremely lively.
At the same time, the news of Yang Kai’s qi deviation and fall into the Demon Path spread like wildfire across the Western Region’s major cities in just a few days, quickly spreading to the Eastern, Southern, and Northern Regions. Everyone who knew Yang Kai and was familiar with him, when they heard this news, their first reaction was that it was just a rumor.
However, this rumor seemed to be true. It had a nose and eyes, and it even claimed that Yang Kai was no match for the Iron Blood Great Emperor and had shamelessly taken Lin Yun’er hostage to escape…
After this rumor was verified, the entire Star Boundary was in an uproar. No one had expected that such a rising star would actually fall into the Demon Path and even cultivate the Heavens Devourer Battle Law!
There were always errors in the transmission of news, and as the news spread, Yang Kai gradually became involved in the Embodiment's Heaven Devourer Battle Law.
Whether it was falling into the Demon Path or cultivating the Heavens Devourer Battle Law, both were intolerable. Yang Kai’s reputation was now completely tarnished, and with the words of the Iron Blood Great Emperor, many people were even eager to find Yang Kai and kill him in order to rid the world of evil.
Although Yang Kai didn’t know what was happening in the outside world, he could more or less guess it, and he was already mentally prepared.
Inside the Mysterious Small World, in the medicine garden, Yang Kai sat cross-legged with a solemn look on his face, next to the Azure Tree.
The two Wood Spirits floated in the air and hid a few hundred meters away, staring at Yang Kai with worried expressions, but at this moment they couldn’t do anything to help. For a moment, they were like ants on a hot pan.
The Golden and Silver Seals on the Azure Tree followed Yang Kai’s guidance and slowly poured into his body before being drawn into his Dantian to seal the Ancient Demon Qi.
Previously, using this Ancient Demon Qi, Yang Kai and the Iron Blood Great Emperor had perfectly played out the scene of Qi deviation and falling into the Demonic Path, but now, he found that things had become somewhat troublesome.
Ever since he had absorbed this Demonic Qi outside Maplewood City, Yang Kai had been unable to deal with it and could only rely on the power of the Azure Tree to seal it.
However, after several attempts, the Ancient Demon Qi became more pure and difficult to control.
The Demonic Qi sealed in Yang Kai’s dantian was like a living creature, each time it was unsealed, it would rapidly grow, making it even more difficult for Yang Kai to seal it again, requiring more sealing power.
Yang Kai had discovered this a long time ago, but this time, the situation had become much more serious. Whether or not he could suppress it, Yang Kai was uncertain.
Could it be that the fake had become real? Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. If he really become devil like this, it would be a huge loss.
Calming his mind and clearing his thoughts, Yang Kai controlled the Azure Tree's Sealing Force and poured it into his body, slowly suppressing the Demonic Qi in his dantian.
As time slowly passed, the golden and silver lights of the Azure Tree grew dimmer. It would not be long before they were completely consumed, but the Demonic Qi on Yang Kai’s body showed no signs of diminishing, still churning and growing.
This was a little awkward…
Yang Kai was somewhat anxious, but there was nothing he could do.
Not far away, Mu Zhu and Mu Lu also noticed that something was wrong. After exchanging a glance, they seemed to have made up their minds and flew towards Yang Kai.
Sensing the movement, Yang Kai opened his eyes and looked towards them, shouting, “Don’t come over.”
Mu Zhu and Mu Lu turned a deaf ear to this and stood on the branches of the Azure Tree. The two of them quickly formed complicated seals, and as they did so, a strange resonance seemed to form between the two Wood Spirits and the Azure Tree.
The azure tree, which had been gradually dimming, suddenly burst out with a dazzling light as a golden and silver light burst out, and the power of the seal was like a fierce tide.
Yang Kai was stunned for a moment, but he didn’t waste any time and quickly guided the sealing power into his body.
The rolling Demonic Qi on his body was gradually suppressed and the evil and violent aura gradually disappeared.
After an unknown period of time, when Yang Kai no longer had any Demonic Qi surging from his body, all of it had been suppressed in his dantian and his body had returned to its original state, giving him a comfortable feeling he had never felt before.
Mu Zhu and Mu Lu’s forehead were dripping with sweat and they were panting slightly. It was obvious that using the Secret Technique of the Wood Spirit Race had taken quite a toll on them.
“Are you alright?” Yang Kai opened his eyes and asked.
The two Wood Spirits shook their heads and Mu Zhu glanced to the side, “We’re fine, just the Azure Tree…”
Yang Kai followed her gaze and found that the Azure Tree was on the verge of death, its branches drooping down as if it was about to die. The gold and silver colors that should have existed were now nowhere to be seen, and its branches and leaves were all withered and yellow.
Mu Lu said, “We stimulated its vitality, causing it great damage.”
Yang Kai frowned, “Will it die?”
Mu Zhu shook her head and said, “That won’t happen. The Azure Tree’s vitality is tenacious, and there is also the Eternal Tree’s vitality here. It won’t die so easily, but if it wants to completely recover, I don’t know how long it will take. Master, don’t easily undo that Demonic Qi seal in the future. Without the power of the Azure Tree, if you do, you won’t be able to return.”
Yang Kai nodded solemnly, “I’ll remember.”
The price of this plan was truly great. Not only had it ruined his reputation, even one of his most powerful trump cards had been rendered useless, but now that things had come to this, he could only look forward.
After instructing the two Wood Spirits to rest, Yang Kai adjusted his breathing for a while to make sure he was completely fine before leaving the Mysterious Small World. After identifying his position, he flew off in a certain direction.
In the void, a figure flashed past at an extremely fast speed, occasionally stopping to scan his surroundings before setting off again.
Following this trail, they actually followed Yang Kai’s trail. It was unknown how this person had managed to track Yang Kai’s whereabouts, but after escaping into the Southern Swamp and adjusting his breathing for a few days, he had also used his Space Ability many times, making it difficult for even Great Emperors to track him.
However, this person was able to track him down roughly.
Her figure came to a stop again. Under the hazy moonlight, her figure was graceful and her beautiful hair fluttered in the wind. She was a beautiful woman.
After Yang Kai escaped from Tiger Roar City, she had also disappeared from Tiger Roar City. Gao Xueting and the others had searched for her for several days but had not been able to find her. Who would have thought she would appear here?
At this moment, Yu Rumeng’s beautiful eyes were filled with a strange light, as if a cheetah had seen its prey and was filled with excitement. From time to time, she would stretch out her red tongue to lick her red lips, giving off a wild temptation.
She stood in the air, her beautiful hair fluttering in the wind as she turned around and stared towards a certain direction, giggling as she whispered, “Husband, I’ve come to find you, you can’t escape!”
As soon as she finished speaking, she transformed into a streak of light and disappeared.
In the wilderness, everything was silent, even the insects hiding in the mud seemed to have been frightened by something.
