Beside the Boundless Sea of Blood, on a blood red pillar, a majestic figure stood with his hands behind his back. This figure had a demonic and wild appearance, his long fiery red hair fluttering in the wind, and his scarlet beast-like eyes were staring into the depths of the Sea of Blood, emitting a strange light as if he wanted to peer into the depths of the Sea of Blood and see the state of the Bright Moon Great Emperor.
Unfortunately, although Bright Moon was injured and trapped, he wasn’t completely helpless. Even someone as powerful as him couldn’t see what was happening inside. The gentle light from the sea of blood blocked his vision and Divine Sense, making him feel somewhat helpless.
The Star Boundary’s Great Emperors were not to be trifled with.
He had gained a slight advantage in the exchange just now, but it had not played any decisive role. The only thing that puzzled him was why Bright Moon had suddenly attacked him. Was he fighting like a cornered beast?
A Great Emperor wouldn’t be so irrational, but why would he do such a thing?
After thinking about it for a while, he still couldn’t figure out what to do, so he couldn’t help but slowly shake his head. Lifting his eyes once more, he stared at the boundless sea of blood and let out a cold snort. The bright moon was injured, so with him personally guarding this place, coupled with the twelve Great Demon Arrays he had activated with the blood sacrifice of the entire Eternal Heaven Continent’s Demon Race, it would definitely be able to keep the person in the sea of blood here forever. Even if he was a Great Emperor, he wouldn’t be able to cause any trouble.
With this thought in mind, he waved his hand and the Demon Race cultivators who had been killed by the shockwaves of his battle with Bright Moon began to pour out their blood like snakes.
As the bloody light flashed, this person’s figure disappeared.
Inside the Blood Sea, inside the Pure Land formed from the gentle light, Yang Kai stared at Bright Moon's abdomen with a look of shock.
Although he had long guessed that Bright Moon's current condition was not good and he was even injured, he had never expected his injuries to be so serious. There was a huge hole in his lower left abdomen where his flesh and blood had disappeared. Although there was no blood flowing out, the terrifying Demonic Qi was still constantly corroding him, making him look extremely miserable.
If it had been an ordinary person, it would have been fine, but Bright Moon was a Great Emperor. Looking at his injuries, it was obvious how intense the battle had been.
At this moment, there was still a trace of blood at the corner of Bright Moon's mouth. Without a doubt, he had suffered a small loss while fighting the Demon Saint just now. In terms of strength, he was on par with the Demon Saint, but the other party had the advantage of timing, location, and man. Bright Moon was not at his peak, so it was only natural that he would not be able to defeat him.
“You’re Yang Kai?”
Just as Yang Kai was observing the Bright Moon Great Emperor, Bright Moon suddenly asked, a look of surprise on his face, as if he hadn’t expected to see someone from the Star Boundary here, someone he knew.
Yang Kai’s expression became solemn as he cupped his fists, “Azure Sun Temple’s Guest Elder Yang Kai greets the Great Emperor!”
Bright Moon was the Protector of the Southern Domain, so when Yang Kai met him, he was naturally referring to his identity in the South Territory.
Bright Moon nodded lightly and asked suspiciously, “Why are you here?”
Yang Kai said solemnly, “This little brat came to the Demon Territory to inquire about Senior’s whereabouts under the request of Senior Tian Shu.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “I thank Senior for saving my life just now.” At this moment, he also understood what had just happened.
He activated his Emperor Qi after entering the Blood Sea and allowed the Bright Moon to sense him, which was why he suddenly attacked and disrupted the senses of the Demon Saint who was guarding this place. Afterwards, he opened up a passage in the Blood Sea to lure him here.
If not for Bright Moon's methods, Yang Kai estimated that he would have definitely been discovered by that Demon Saint, making it difficult to predict what would happen.
Bright Moon smiled gently, “You’re too bold.”
Yang Kai said awkwardly, “Fortunately, my luck was good.” If Bright Moon hadn’t discovered him first, but instead that Demon Saint… Yang Kai’s scalp went numb just thinking about it.
Bright Moon nodded and said, “That old man Tian Shu send you here… Although I know he must have his reasons for calling you here, this King is still quite curious. How did you safely enter the Demon Territory and come here?”
Yang Kai scratched his head and said, “This little brat has already betrayed the Star Boundary and joined the Demon Territory. In the Star Boundary, this little brat’s reputation is now quite notorious and is hated by everyone.”
Saying so, he looked up at Bright Moon and found that not only was he not angry, he even had a look of interest on his face as he quickly explained the reason. [Hoogsway]
A moment later, Bright Moon clicked his tongue in wonder, “In other words, that Yu Rumeng snuck into the Star Boundary and hid herself by your side, but because her strength was greatly reduced, she was unable to force you and could only use soft methods to bring you to the Demon Territory. Since you already understood her intentions, you beat her at her own game and allowed that Iron Blood fellow to play along with you? After that, you betrayed the Star Boundary and came to the Demon Territory?”
Yang Kai nodded somewhat embarrassedly, “The general situation is like this.”
Bright Moon couldn’t help praising, “Impressive.” This was indeed an amazing achievement. It was basically impossible for a human to come to the Demon Territory, but Yang Kai had done it. The reason why Tian Shu Greaat Emperor had allowed him to come to the Demon Territory was probably because he had grasped a trace of the Heavenly Secret from the invisible will of the Heavens. Although he wasn’t clear about the process, he was certain he had anticipated the final result. Otherwise, why would he not look for anyone else but Yang Kai?
“Sir is too kind, it’s just fate.”
Bright Moon asked, “Are you safe here?”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Sir, don’t worry, my side is very safe. Yu Rumeng doesn’t have any suspicions about me, and because of my Space Ability, the other Demon Saints seem to be very interested in me and want to borrow my strength to repair some of the Demon Territory’s World Gates.”
“It’s been hard on you…” Bright Moon sighed and muttered to himself for a moment before continuing, “But since that Heart Seal Secret Technique was used by a Demon Saint, its power must be extraordinary. You must be careful.”
“Junior is safe, don’t worry about it,” Yang Kai nodded, thinking that the Heart Seal Secret Technique didn’t have any restrictions on him at all, but he couldn’t say it out loud. After all, a Secret Technique used by a Demon Saint had been broken by him, so it was quite shocking.
Changing the topic, Yang Kai asked, “Sir, how is your condition right now? I can see that your injuries… seem to be quite serious.”
Bright Moon smiled slightly, “It’s not that dangerous, but the Spirit Array outside is a bit troublesome.”
Yang Kai frowned and said, “Before I came here, I saw all the Demon Race on this continent gathering towards this place. There were also countless Demon King Level Blood Demon hosting a blood sacrifice, converging a boundless sea of blood, a cage of blood, and a blood red pillar that connected heaven and earth. Does Sir know what the Demon Territory’s intentions are?”
Bright Moon chuckled, “What other intentions could they have? They just want to digest this King!”
“Digest?” Yang Kai frowned, thinking to himself, “It's not eating or drinking, how are they supposed to digest?”
Bright Moon looked at him and asked, “Why do you think they haven’t killed me yet?”
Yang Kai thought about it for a moment before replying, “Even a rabbit would bite when cornered, let alone a Great Emperor like you. If they want to attack Sir, they will have to pay a terrible price.”
“This is only one of the reasons,” Bright Moon smiled lightly, “Since you’ve successfully infiltrated the Demon Territory and even obtained the favor of a Demon Saint, you should know some information about the Demon Territory.”
“May I ask what Sir is referring to?”
“The number of top masters in the Demon Territory is greater than in the Star Boundary, there are a total of twelve Demon Saints. If these twelve join forces, do you think this King can resist them?”
Hearing this, Yang Kai pondered for a moment before shaking his head, “I’m afraid not.”
It wasn’t that Yang Kai was underestimating Bright Moon, it was just that the disparity in numbers was too great. Once the twelve Demon Saints joined forces, Bright Moon would definitely die. Thinking of this, Yang Kai was suddenly shocked. If it was really that simple, why would the Demon Territory waste so much time and energy to trap Bright Moon here, and even sacrifice the entire Eternal Heaven Continent’s Demon Race? Although the Eternal Heaven Continent had been destroyed by the struggle between Great Emperors and Demon Saints, and the World Gate had disappeared, it was not to the point where they had completely given up. The entire continent’s Demon Race had been dragged here for blood sacrifice, why would they do such a thing?
“Indeed, I can’t. Perhaps this King will give them some trouble in this life or death struggle, but I won’t be able to drag any of them down with me. In other words, if they really wanted to kill me, this King would have died long ago.”
Yang Kai was stunned, “Could it be that the Demon Territory wants you to become a Demon?”
Since they could kill him but not kill him, the Demon Territory’s goal was definitely not small. If they could turn Bright Moon into a Demon Saint, it would be equivalent to having another Demon Saint level master appear out of nowhere, but… was that even possible?
Bright Moon smiled and said, “How could this King become a Demon? This king just said that they didn’t kill me because they wanted to digest me! They wanted the Demon Territory to digest me.”
Yang Kai stared at him blankly.
Bright Moon explained, “The so-called Great Emperors and Demon Saints are existences that have been recognized by their respective Great Worlds. They represent a part of the world, so if this Great Emperor were to fall, the Star Boundary would definitely experience a great upheaval and many strange phenomena would appear. The reason why that old man Tian Shu was able to confirm that I was not dead was because of this.”
Yang Kai nodded. He knew about this.
“When one’s strength reaches your level, I’m sure you’ve heard of the World Bottle,” Seeing Yang Kai nod, Bright Moon continued, “This King and the other nine are the ten largest stones in the Star Boundary's World Bottle, with countless grains of sand remaining. However, if this King’s stone is buried in the Demon Territory and then assimilated by the Demon Territory’s World, the Demon Territory World Bottle's limit will expand, giving birth to the thirteenth Demon Saint!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed. If what Bright Moon said was true, then the Demon Territory’s goal was not to take Bright Moon's life. Killing a Great Emperor would greatly change the balance between the two worlds, but if they could also absorb the World Energy contained in this Great Emperor, that would be the best.
That was why Bright Moon had been able to survive until now. On one hand, the Demon Saints didn’t want to force him too much, so even if the twelve of them could kill Bright Moon together without worrying that they would be dragged down with him, if Bright Moon resisted, he would definitely have a chance to heavily injure one or two of them. This was a risk they didn’t want to take, which was why they had set up the Blood Sacrifice Array. Once they succeeded, the Demon Territory’s World Bottle’s limit would expand and a new Demon Saint would be born. On the other hand, the Star Boundary would have one less Great Emperor, and it would be permanently reduced. There would no longer be a tenth Great Emperor.
