Among these Half-Saints, Di Li’s objections were the greatest, but at that time, she had forcefully suppressed them, so Yang Kai didn’t know.
Yu Rumeng hadn’t expected that Di Li would also be involved in this matter, and now that the three Half-Saints under her had been implicated, Yu Rumeng couldn’t help feeling a headache. If it was just Yue Sang alone, it would be easy to deal with, but there were three of them. If she really punished those three, the other Half-Saints would be unhappy.
Although Demon Saints were top existences in the Demon Territory, the number of Half-Saints they had under their command was the foundation of their strength. Otherwise, if a Demon Saint had such a high cultivation and didn’t even have a subordinate, it would be meaningless.
As he spoke, Bai Zhuo walked back with a gloomy expression and cupped his fists, “Saint Venerable, Yue Sang has not responded!”
“Is there no response?” Yu Rumeng turned to look at him.
Bai Zhuo replied, “I don’t think so…”
“He is rebelling!” Yu Rumeng flew into a rage. Today’s incident was completely caused by Yue Sang. Di Li and that female succubus should have only been helping Yue Sang, but now they were actually unable to contact him, “Continue to send a message, tell him that if he doesn’t appear in front of this Queen within two hours, he should never appear again.”
Hearing this, Bai Zhuo was stunned, seemingly not having expected Yu Rumeng’s punishment to be so severe, but he quickly cupped his hands and left, giving Yue Sang an ultimatum.
Yu Rumeng was angry for a moment before consoling Yang Kai, “Rest assured, I will give you an explanation for this matter.”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “No need, I’ll handle my own matters.”
Yu Rumeng’s brow furrowed slightly as she glanced over at Yang Kai’s Embodiment and nodded lightly, “It’s up to you, but we’ll have to wait until this matter is over.” She also let out a sigh of relief in her heart. Although she was willing to give Yang Kai an explanation, if she were to personally make an appearance, even if Yue Sang didn’t say anything, Di Li and that female Succubus would definitely not be able to resist. If news of this were to spread, it was highly likely they would fall to another Half-Saint.
However, if Yang Kai had acted on his own, the situation wouldn’t have been so serious. She could also see that his Embodiment had the cultivation of a Half-Saint, but Di Li and the female Succubus weren’t easy to provoke, so even if Yang Kai acted personally, he might not be able to do anything to them.
The Half-Saint subordinates under her weren’t without conflicts, for example, Yue Sang and Bai Zhuo had always had grudges between them, but as long as they didn’t interfere with her overall interests, she wouldn’t interfere.
In the past, she had not interfered with the battles of those below her, so now it was naturally best not to interfere. Otherwise, if she were to make such a big deal out of it, there would be no way she would be able to resolve it peacefully.
“I heard you were injured?” Yang Kai turned to look at her.
Yu Rumeng didn’t want to speak too much about this matter and casually replied, “It’s just a small injury, nothing serious. As for you, why did you come here? Shouldn’t you be in the Hundred Spirit Continent?”
“I heard something happened here, so I came to join in the fun,” Yang Kai grinned, “I just didn’t expect that the Great Emperor Bright Moon would be here.”
“He’s always been here.”
“Since we’ve trapped him here, why haven’t we killed him yet?”
Yu Rumeng slowly shook her head, “It’s not as simple as you think. If it was just killing him, he would have already died back then. Leaving him alive naturally has other uses, but…”
Yu Rumeng sighed, “It’s just that no one expected him to be able to recover to his peak state under such circumstances, so the situation has changed.”
Yang Kai frowned and said, “Just now, Brother Bai Zhuo said that this matter is a life or death gamble for all Half-Saints and also a great opportunity. What exactly is going on?”
Hearing this, Yu Rumeng turned to glance at Bai Zhuo, seemingly blaming him for speaking too much.
Yang Kai shrugged, “If it’s not convenient, don't say anything. In any case, I’m just here to join in the fun. It’s not bad to be able to witness the fall of a Great Emperor. Right, is Bright Moon still alive this time?”
Yu Rumeng chuckled lightly, “Your resentment towards the Star Boundary is still so deep.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “If they hadn’t been so aggressive, how could I have fallen to such a state?”
Yu Rumeng glanced at him from the corner of her eyes, “What’s so bad about the Demon Territory? You seem to be living quite comfortably recently.”
“There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just that I’m a human after all, so I’m somewhat out of place here,” Yang Kai chuckled lightly before changing the subject, “You haven’t answered me yet, how much vitality does Bright Moon have this time?”
Yu Rumeng smiled at him, “The Demon Territory’s Twelve Demon Saints have all appeared, how much chance do you think he has?”
Hearing this, Yang Kai couldn’t help whistling, “Looks like he’s dead for sure.”
At this moment, Li Shiqing suddenly rushed over and grabbed Yang Kai’s arm, her face pale as she anxiously called out, “Save Sir Bright Moon!”
She had been meditating nearby to recover and had obviously heard the conversation between Yang Kai and Yu Rumeng, which was why she had acted like this.
Yu Rumeng looked at her, then at Yang Kai, a playful smile appearing on her face, “How do you feel after seeing this face all day?”
Back in the Star Boundary, she had transformed into Li Shiqing and stayed by Yang Kai’s side. Many things had happened between them, but after returning to the Demon Territory, she had removed her disguise and restored her original appearance.
“What kind of feeling can I have!” Yang Kai coldly snorted, “You’re you, she’s her, how can you mix them together?” As he spoke, he flung Li Shiqing away and coldly said, “Get lost.”
Li Shiqing wasn’t willing to give up and rushed forward to grab his arm again, her beautiful eyes filled with a pleading look, “Sir Bright Moon is the Great Emperor of the Star Boundary, nothing can happen to him. Can you think of a way to save him? Don’t you have a Space Ability? You can take Sir Bright Moon away from here.”
“I’ll say it again, get lost!” Yang Kai’s face was cold. He was already frustrated by Yu Rumeng’s words, and now that Li Shiqing had come out to stir up trouble, how could he be in the mood to entertain her? If his Space Ability was really so powerful, he wouldn’t have to stand here and watch. When dealing with those Half-Saints, his Space Ability might be able to display some unexpected effects, but against the Demon Territory’s Twelve Demon Saints, how much use could his Space Ability have? Not to mention anything else, once Yang Kai made a move, the Demon Saints would only need to seal off the Eternal Heaven Continent to catch him.
He wanted to save Bright Moon, but that wasn’t the way to do so.
Seeing that Li Shiqing was about to continue blabbering, Yang Kai reached out and slapped her on the head, knocking her unconscious. Giving her a meaningful look, Yin immediately stepped forward and helped Li Shiqing down.
“You can’t be so ruthless,” Yu Rumeng glanced at Yang Kai, “Are you doing this on purpose?”
Yang Kai smiled lightly, “What’s the use of doing this on purpose?” Saying so, he reached out and lifted Yu Rumeng’s chin.
Yu Rumeng’s face changed as she gnashed her teeth, “There are so many people here, give me some face.”
Yang Kai grinned and smoothed her hair.
Yu Rumeng looked around helplessly and saw Bai Zhuo looking up at the sky, so she couldn’t help feeling both angry and amused, changing the subject, “What’s the situation with Yue Sang?”
Bai Zhuo quickly cupped his fists, “Still no response.”
“Good, it seems he really wants to rebel,” Yu Rumeng laughed angrily, “I want to see just how he wants to die!”
Bai Zhuo asked, “Saint Venerable, do you need this subordinate to capture him?” Bai Zhuo was not willing to miss this opportunity to beat up a drowning dog, his face filled with eagerness.
Yu Rumeng waved her hand and said, “There’s no need, we’ll deal with the matters here first. We’ll talk about it after we understand everything.”
“You should go back as well. Things can change at any time. Relay my orders and have everyone prepare.”
Bai Zhuo accepted the order and quickly disappeared.
After he left, Yang Kai asked suspiciously, “What preparations do I need to make? Do I need to prepare anything?”
Yu Rumeng raised her head to look at him, a look of hesitation flashing across her eyes. After a long time, she sighed, “You shouldn’t have come here. The reason why I didn’t inform you to come here was because this place is too dangerous.”
Yang Kai shrugged, “But I’m already here.”
Yu Rumeng smiled bitterly, “I’m afraid it’s impossible for you to leave now, right?”
Yang Kai grinned, “If you knock me out and let someone take me away, I won’t be able to do anything about it.” He was really afraid that Yu Rumeng would do something like this. Although he didn’t know why Yu Rumeng wanted him to stay away, it would be best for him to say something to stop her.
“Can't you just do this for me? I brought you here from the Star Boundary, I don’t want you to die here.”
Yang Kai hesitated for a moment before saying, “I will be careful!”
“I knew it would be like this.” Yu Rumeng brushed her hair behind her ear as she stared towards the distant battlefield. A moment later, she said, “Bai Zhuo is right, this matter is both a life and death gamble for all Half-Saint cultivators and a great opportunity, because… the final kill will be carried out by them!”
Yang Kai’s heart trembled violently as his expression changed drastically. Although Yu Rumeng had only said that it would happen soon and not what had already happened, since a Demon Saint had said such a thing, it was very likely that it would happen.
Forcefully suppressing the shock in his heart, Yang Kai tried his best to calm his tone, “A life or death gamble is not difficult to understand. If a Half-Saint wants to kill a Great Emperor, they really need to put their lives on the line, but what about that opportunity? Could it be that killing Bright Moon will bring them some benefits?”
This was also what he couldn’t figure out the most. What benefits could killing a Great Emperor bring? Perhaps it was because his current realm wasn’t high enough, so he couldn’t figure this out.
Yu Rumeng said softly, “Back then, we didn’t kill Bright Moon, but instead used the Great Array and Blood Sacrifice to trap him here. Originally, we planned to slowly weaken him and let him fall here. Bright Moon is the Great Emperor of the Star Boundary, and his existence represents a portion of the will of the Star Boundary’s Great World. If he were to fall here, that portion of the Star Boundary’s will would be accepted and assimilated by the Demon Territory, giving it unimaginable benefits.”
