As the central city of the entire continent, Cloud Shadow City had always been bustling with activity, but tonight, the city that should have been bustling with noise and excitement was strangely quiet.
The news of more than forty Demon Kings, more than a thousand Demon Chief Commander, and more than ten thousand Demon Commander surrounding a mansion had spread like wildfire. Many of the Demon Race didn’t know what was happening and were just observing from afar.
There were also a few Demons who knew that this was Lie Kuang’s mansion, and Lie Kuang had just entered the city a few days ago. Now that the City Palace had mobilized so many people, was it possible that they were planning to attack Lie Kuang? Did Lao Ke really have such courage?
Or was this all the work of the new Great King?
No matter what, there would be a good show tonight. The slightly stronger Demon Race all felt that the Cloud Shadow Continent was about to undergo a major change tonight, and the entire Cloud Shadow City was shrouded in an inexplicable atmosphere.
Inside Lie Kuang’s mansion, the Mountain River Bell covered a large area, causing Lao Ke and the others to scatter in all directions. On the other hand, Lie Kuang’s twenty or so Demon Kings subordinates were constantly turning their heads and frowning.
It had been about half a cup of tea since this treasure had trapped the human and Sir Lie Kuang inside, so they didn’t know what had happened inside. All they could hear was some faint sounds.
The fact that this human had been able to persist under Sir Lie Kuang’s control for so long was beyond their expectations. In their opinion, with Lie Kuang’s cultivation and strength, he should be able to quickly take down this human and escape from this treasure, but in reality, the battle inside was quite fierce.
The initial calmness had disappeared, and the twenty or so Demon Kings all wore worried looks on their faces. Could it be that Sir Lie Kuang had encountered some kind of accident inside? After all, this treasure belonged to that human, but even now, none of them had noticed any signs of this treasure’s power. This giant bell seemed to only be used to isolate the outside world.
Trying their best to push this thought away, they firmly believed that Sir Lie Kuang wouldn’t be unable to deal with a single human, so they waited patiently.
At the same time, inside the Mountain River Bell, Lie Kuang’s eyes bulged as he madly fled like a stray dog, but how could he escape?
Unexpectedly, he had fallen into a trap. Originally, he didn’t put this human in his eyes, but now that they were actually fighting, he realized that his opponent’s strength was no less than his own. In addition to that strange Holy Spirit’s assistance, Lie Kuang was almost completely helpless.
His originally burly figure had shriveled up like a dried fish, and his blood essence had been drained countless times. This was all thanks to the Holy Spirit. It was unknown what kind of evil technique this guy cultivated, but it had the ability to swallow all living things. Every time a wound appeared on his body, a large amount of blood would flow out and be swallowed and refined.
Once or twice wasn’t a big deal, but once more, Lie Kuang couldn’t bear it.
At this moment, he felt that his foundation had been damaged and his High-Rank Demon King cultivation had fallen to the Mid-Rank, making it impossible for him to recover…
His heart filled with grief and indignation, his eyes filled with darkness, unable to see light.
Seeing that Yang Kai had once again blocked his path and was reaching out with his sharp five fingers, Lie Kuang quickly half-knelt on the ground and shouted, “Surrender! I surrender! Sir, please spare my life! Lie Kuang is willing to follow Sir and die for Sir!”
If he were to delay any longer, he might not even be able to keep his live. At this time, whatever pride or honor he had would no longer matter. The most important thing now was to preserve his live.
Yang Kai’s dragon claw stopped in front of Lie Kuang’s neck as he tilted his head to look at him. Sensing the unwillingness in his eyes, Yang Kai grinned, “It’s too late, if you surrender now… what use do I have for you?”
If he had been a peak High-Rank Demon King, Yang Kai would have been interested in recruiting him, but now that Lie Kuang’s Blood Essence had been consumed by his Embodiment’s Heavens Devourer Battle Law, his strength had fallen greatly and there was no chance of him recovering, so there was no point in accepting him.
He given him an opportunity but didn’t cherish it, only accepting it after being forced into a corner. How could there be such a good thing in this world?
By the time he finished speaking, Yang Kai had already begun squeezing his fingers.
With a flash of light, the Mountain River Bell began spinning and rapidly shrank.
All of the Demon Race masters who were paying attention to this place couldn’t help raising their spirits, while the twenty or so subordinates of Lie Kuang all wore excited expressions.
Bo Ya’s eyelids twitched, but she didn’t dare to look at it for fear of seeing something she didn’t want to see. The Soul Puppet in Yang Kai’s hands wasn’t bad, at least for the past few days, Yang Kai didn’t make things difficult for her, nor did he make her do anything she didn’t want to do.
However, if the Soul Puppet were to fall into the hands of that bastard Lie Kuang, Bo Ya was certain she would suffer a fate worse than death in the future.
Therefore, even though she knew that the chances were slim, she still secretly prayed that Yang Kai would create a miracle and appear in front of her alive.
When the Mountain River Bell soared into the sky, the sealed space was finally exposed to the eyes of the Demon Race.
The eyes of Lao Ke and the others all shrank as their expressions became stunned, while the eyes of the twenty or so Demon Kings under Lie Kuang became filled with disbelief as a chill ran down their spines…
Bo Ya was also stunned for a moment before quickly wiping her eyes, seemingly trying to confirm if she had seen wrong.
Yang Kai had really survived. Not only was he alive, but he also didn’t have a single wound on his body. He stood there majestically with a long spear in his hand and a shriveled corpse at the tip of the spear.
The corpse seemed to have been dead for countless years and was so dry that it didn’t even look like a person, but from its face and figure, one could still see Lie Kuang’s shadow. His dull eyes were wide open, as if he had died with a grievance.
The 2 meter long spear was obviously Lie Kuang’s Demon Treasure.
Lie Kuang… actually died?
Everyone felt as if their hearts had been struck by a giant hammer and their emotions were in turmoil, as if they were in a dream.
How could Lie Kuang die? How could the ending be like this?
Among the four High-Rank Demon Kings guarding the Cloud Shadow Continent, Lie Kuang was the strongest. Even if he encountered a High-Rank Demon King, it was impossible for him to be harmed. The cultivation that Yang Kai displayed was only equivalent to a Mid-Rank Demon King. According to the Human Race’s classification, he was only a Second-Order Emperor Realm, so it was impossible for him to kill Lie Kuang without suffering any injuries.
Was it because of that bell-like artifact? Although the bell had not shown any signs of releasing its power before, who knew what kind of special ability it possessed? Perhaps it was because of this bell that Yang Kai was able to achieve this.
What was even more shocking to these Demon Race masters was what kind of technique Yang Kai had cultivated that had turned Lie Kuang into a dried corpse. It could be imagined that before Lie Kuang died, he had undoubtedly suffered a terrible torture, even his vitality had been completely wiped out. Such a technique would undoubtedly be called a Demonic Art by the Human Race.
No wonder this guy had betrayed the Star Boundary and cultivated such a Demonic Art. How could there be a place for him in the Star Boundary?
Yang Kai picked up Lie Kuang’s dried corpse and looked around coldly. As he did so, the twenty or so Demon Kings gathered around him all took a few steps back in unison, all of them feeling a terrifying aura.
“Bold Lie Kuang, you stole my treasure, tarnished my reputation, and even disrespected my name. This King will kill you today, I hope all of you will heed my warning!” Yang Kai shouted in a low voice, circulating his Emperor Qi to the point where his voice could be heard by almost all of the Demon Race in Cloud Shadow City. As soon as his voice fell, he stretched out his hand and with a flick of his wrist, the Demon Treasure spear and Lie Kuang’s dried corpse were nailed to the top of the tallest building.
A strong wind blew over and the dried corpse swayed back and forth, its angry eyes seemingly staring at everyone, causing the group of Demon Race masters to tremble in fear.
But this wasn’t the end. Yang Kai suddenly turned his head to look at the twenty or so Demon Kings around him and shouted, “Lie Kuang’s subordinates have no respect for their superiors and are assisting the evildoers. We should have killed them all, but since all of you are acting under orders, we’ll spare your lives for now. We’ll make a decision after we investigate this matter.” Waving his hand, Yang Kai looked towards Lao Ke, Ke Sen, He Yin, and the others with burning eyes, “Capture all of them! Anyone who dares resist will be killed without mercy!”
Lao Ke and the others couldn’t help shivering, immediately overturning the gentle impression Yang Kai had given them two days ago when they first met. They had thought this human was just a sheep pretending to be fierce, but who would have thought he was actually a hungry wolf? Tonight’s events had completely exposed his true nature.
With Lie Kuang as an example, Lao Ke and the others naturally didn’t dare to be negligent. Even Lie Kuang had been killed by Yang Kai in an extremely short period of time, so how could they be his opponents? If they really made him unhappy, their future days would definitely not be easy.
As such, when this order was issued, Lao Ke and the others only hesitated for a moment before waving their hands, “Attack!”
All of a sudden, more than forty Demon Kings rushed towards Lie Kuang’s subordinates.
These twenty or so subordinates of Lie Kuang were still in a daze, unable to recover from the death of Lie Kuang. Hearing Yang Kai’s harsh words, all of them panicked, but although there were more than twenty of them, the number of people on Lao Ke’s side was more than twice their number, and there were even three High-Rank Demon Kings holding down the fort, so most of the Demon Kings just stood there quietly, allowing Lao Ke and the others to seal their cultivation.
Only two or three Demon Kings, whether they were panicking or truly loyal to Lie Kuang, suddenly broke out of the encirclement and used their Secret Techniques to escape.
Fortunately, there were still thousands of Demon Chief Commander and tens of thousands of Demon Commander surrounding them. With the help of these Demon Race cultivators, three shooting star-like arrows had already pierced through the air and accurately nailed the three fleeing Demon Kings, killing them on the spot.
Yang Kai turned his head and saw Bo Ya putting away her bow.
After a while, the dust settled.
Everyone in Lie Kuang’s mansion had been captured, not a single one of them missing. Perhaps because they wanted to make up for their previous negligence, Lao Ke, Ke Sen, and He Yin all cooperated with Yang Kai’s orders.
After half an incense stick of time, Lao Ke arrived in front of Yang Kai and cupped his fists, “Great King, the twenty two Demon Kings under Lie Kuang’s command are all here. Of them, nineteen were captured, three were killed, and another 348 under Demon King were captured.”
