After a while, the situation on Blue Plains side became worse. Except for the High-Rank Demon King who was besieged by Lao Ke and Yin, the rest had either fled or been killed by Bo Ya’s reinforcements.
As for the High-Rank Demon King who was fighting with Yang Kai, he also seemed to be on the verge of collapse, barely managing to survive several times with blood flowing from his body.
He had already noticed that his situation was not looking good. Not to mention that he was not Yang Kai’s opponent, just the fact that Bo Ya was about to take action meant that once he was targeted by this woman, he would no longer have any chance to survive. With this thought in mind, he quickly used his Divine Sense to secretly send a message to Yang Kai, “Sir, please show mercy. Tu Qialuo is willing to renounce the darkness and pledge his loyalty to Sir.”
Yang Kai’s brow rose, but his hands didn’t move in the slightest, still trying to take his life as he sneered, “You’re Tu Qialuo?”
Earlier, Lao Ke had reported that when Lie Kuang had brought his people to Cloud Shadow City, the Myriad Demon Cave had been guarded by this Tu Qialuo, and this Demon King was also a High-Rank Demon King from Blue Plains Continent. However, when Lao Ke and Yin had come from Cloud Shadow City, they had let him escape.
So it was this guy. What a coincidence.
For the other party to beg for mercy at this time, it was obvious that he felt he had no strength to continue. If he didn’t beg for mercy now, he would only die.
Looking at him indifferently, Yang Kai chuckled, “Give me a reason to let you live.”
Tu Qialuo did his best to resist while continuing to transmit his voice, “After this battle, Blue Plains will definitely be unable to resist Sir’s might, and the Blue Plains Continent will also be under Sir’s control, but as far as I know, Sir only has three High-Rank Demon Kings under him right now, so how can three High-Rank Demon Kings defend the territories of two continents? Tu Qialuo is incompetent but i am willing to share Sir’s burden.”
Yang Kai chuckled, “That makes sense.”
Tu Qialuo's face lit up when he heard this, thinking that Yang Kai was going to agree, but instead he saw Yang Kai look at him coldly and ridicule, “Aren’t you afraid Yue Sang will find trouble with you? Making a last minute change is quite hateful.”
Tu Qialuo couldn’t help turning pale. Yang Kai’s words were what worried him the most. At this time, begging for mercy from Yang Kai wasn’t a problem, but if Yue Sang found out about this matter, would he settle accounts with him? Yue Sang was a Half-Saint, so if he really wanted to take his life, Yang Kai would be powerless to protect him.
However, he had obviously thought of this possibility long ago, so he naturally had his own excuse and immediately replied, “Sir Yue Sang has been sent to the Two Worlds Battlefield, so he must have done something wrong to anger the Saint Venerable. Not to mention whether or not he will be able to return, even if he does, who knows how long it will be before he can return. Moreover, Sir being conferred the title of Great King is clearly more important to the Saint Venerable. Submitting to Sir is equivalent to serving the Saint Venerable, so Sir Yue Sang must have some scruples.”
Pausing for a moment, he smiled bitterly and said, “The most important point is that if Sir does not leave me alone today, this place will be the burial place of Tu Qialuo, so I ask Sir to show mercy. Tu Qialuo will definitely follow Sir’s orders in the future!”
Yang Kai’s eyes flashed as he coldly snorted, “You’re quite sensible.”
This fellow’s words were sincere, and what he said was also the truth. If he couldn’t move Yang Kai to let him live today, he would definitely die. Rather than worrying about whether Yue Sang would seek revenge on him later, it was naturally more important to survive first.
Moreover, Yang Kai didn’t intend to kill them all. Although he was eager for the more Demon Race to die, just as Tu Qialuo had said, after today, this Blue Plains Continent would be under his control, but he only had three High-Rank Demon Kings under his command, so how could he guard the vast territories of these two continents? Subduing him would make up for the deficiencies of others.
This was also the reason why he hadn’t killed Tu Qialuo yet. Otherwise, even if Tu Qialuo was a High-Rank Demon King, Yang Kai would have been able to take his life long ago.
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai said, “It’s not impossible to let you live, but you must open your Knowledge Sea and allow this King to place a Soul Brand on you.”
Tu Charo was not comparable to Lao Ke, Ke Sen, and Yin, the three of them had relatively clean backgrounds. Yang Kai had Yu Rumeng’s orders, so he naturally didn’t have to worry about them harming him, but Tu Qialuo was Yue Sang’s subordinate, so how could Yang Kai not worry about him if he didn’t plant a Soul Brand on him?
Once a Soul Brand was planted, Tu Qialuo’s life and death would be handed over to Yang Kai, and he would no longer be able to resist in the future. This was even more tragic than Bo Ya being restrained by the Soul Puppet.
As such, when these words came out, Tu Qialuo’s expression changed greatly as he bitterly said, “Sir, there’s no need to plant a Soul Brand, I am willing to swear on the name of Great Demon God that I will never have any second thoughts towards Sir in the future.”
Yang Kai snorted, “If an oath is useful, why bother cultivating? You can consider it carefully, this King is not in a hurry.”
Tu Qialuo’s face twitched as he thought to himself, ‘You’re not in a hurry, I’m in a hurry.’ At this moment, the Feather Demon from a few dozen kilometers away had already drawn its bow and aimed its arrow at him, ready to fire a fatal arrow at any moment. Even from a distance of several dozen kilometers, Tu Qialuo could clearly feel the threat of death.
He wanted to dodge, but Yang Kai had completely suppressed him, making it impossible for him to dodge.
While he was hesitating, the aura several dozen kilometers away became more condensed, as if an arrow was about to shoot out.
Knowing that it would be too late to hesitate, Tu Qialuo grit his teeth and said, “Good, i’ll do as Sir says. This subordinate will follow Sir’s lead in the future, I hope Sir will also treat me with sincerity.”
“You’ll know in the future what this King’s character is like!” Yang Kai chuckled and turned around, intentionally or unintentionally blocking Bo Ya’s path of attack. Only then did Tu Qialuo relax and look at Yang Kai before sighing and opening his Knowledge Sea.
Yang Kai didn’t hesitate and immediately used his Divine Sense to plant a brand in his Knowledge Sea.
The two of them secretly reached an agreement, but their hands didn’t stop moving, continuing to fight, mainly because they were afraid that the Demon Kings from the World Gate would notice something was wrong.
After planting the branding mark, Tu Qialuo’s face flashed with a trace of unnoticeable frustration, but he quickly composed himself and said, “Sir, this subordinate can help you subdue two more, what does Sir think?”
“Why these two people?” Yang Kai asked suspiciously. There were still three High-Rank Demon Kings on the other side of the World Gate, and at this moment, they were all looking over, as well as Ke Sen and his subordinates.
Ke Sen and the others were no match for them to begin with, and the only reason they had been able to hold on until now was because they had shown mercy. Seeing that the situation was not looking good, the Demon Kings who were still on the other side of the World Gate naturally used their full strength. When Lao Ke and Yin appeared, Ke Sen had already been reduced to a prisoner.
Obviously, they wanted to use Ke Sen as a bargaining chip to negotiate with Yang Kai.
Tu Qialuo said, “One of them is Yue Sang’s trusted aide, so I’m afraid it won’t be easy to subdue him. Rather than leaving him alive, it would be better to just kill him.”
Yang Kai chuckled lightly and looked at him meaningfully.
With a Soul Brand technique like this, how could it not be easy to subdue? Even if the Demon King over there was loyal to Yue Sang, as long as he planted a Soul Brand, he would be Yang Kai’s man.
Tu Qialuo’s proposal was probably not entirely true, perhaps because he had a grudge with the Demon King and wanted to use Yang Kai to eliminate him.
However, Yang Kai didn’t intend to delve too deeply into this matter. Even if Tu Qialuo really had the intention to use his influence to intimidate others, if Yue Sang’s confidant really was there, it would be best to eliminate him as soon as possible to avoid any future troubles.
As their eyes met, a trace of panic flashed across Tu Qialuo’s eyes, further confirming Yang Kai’s guess.
“Do you have any life-saving methods?”
Tu Qialuo was stunned for a moment before quickly understanding Yang Kai’s intentions and quickly replied, “Yes.”
“Then use it,” Yang Kai nodded lightly, “But be careful, don’t get shot to death by that Bo Ya woman.”
Tu Qialuo’s face twitched as he thought that if he really died because of this, he would be wronged. However, he also knew that Yang Kai had no way to warn Bo Ya now, so if he wanted to live, he could only rely on himself.
With a loud shout, the pores all over his body spat out a cloud of blood mist as he transformed into a streak of red light and flew towards the World Gate.
With two ‘chi chi’ sounds, a stream of light shot out from several dozen kilometers away, and just as Yang Kai expected, Bo Ya shot out her arrow.
These two streaks of light were quite powerful, and they were the first to arrive. However, after Tu Qialuo used his life-saving Secret Technique, although he managed to avoid one of the arrows, the other arrow was nailed to his thigh, leaving a bloody hole in its wake as blood sprayed into the sky.
However, this kind of injury was nothing to Tu Qialuo. As long as he rested for a few days, he would be able to recover, and if he missed this opportunity, Bo Ya would no longer be able to kill him.
“Sir!” Not far away, Lao Ke and Yin led Cloud Shadow's group of elites over, cupped their fists, and carefully examined Yang Kai’s condition. After confirming that there were no injuries, they breathed a sigh of relief.
As for the High-Rank Demon King they had previously intercepted, he had long since been killed by Bo Ya.
“En!” Yang Kai nodded lightly and looked towards the World Gate. He saw that Tu Qialuo had already met up with the Demon Race and was talking to them, causing a commotion.
Chuckling lightly, Yang Kai glanced over at his Embodiment’s side. The commotion there had already died down, and not a single one of the Demon Race’s forces had managed to escape. Under the Heaven Devouring Domain, all the Demon Race had been reduced to dried corpses.
At this moment, his Embodiment was silently approaching the World Gate.
After a few breaths of time, Bo Ya flew over and looked at Yang Kai from head to toe, as if this was the first time she had met him, asking, “Did you instigate that guy to defect?”
Yang Kai glanced at her, “You can tell?”
Bo Ya sneered, “If that wasn’t the case, why would you deliberately block my attack?”
She wasn’t an idiot, so she was naturally able to see some clues. Moreover, she had long since noticed that Yang Kai and Tu Qialuo were secretly communicating with each other through their Divine Senses, so it wasn’t difficult for her to guess this.
