In this boundless world, there were all kinds of strange things, some of which were impossible to understand.
Yang Kai’s eyes shifted slightly as he pointed to another Demon Saint and asked, “What about this one?”
Although he was only observing the situation through a mirror artifact, this Demon Saint was still the most eye-catching existence. It wasn’t that there was anything special about his appearance, but rather that he gave off a feeling that he couldn’t be ignored. With just a glance, Yang Kai could tell that this person was not someone to be trifled with.
Bo Ya’s expression was also extremely solemn as she carefully observed the situation before saying, “If I’m not mistaken, this should be the Number 1 Demon Saint, Huang Wuji.”
“Number 1 Demon Saint?” Yang Kai was surprised, “The twelve Demon Saints actually have a ranking?”
He had been in the Demon Territory for quite some time, but he had never heard of such a thing. He only wondered what Yu Rumeng’s ranking was and what Bei Limo’s ranking was.
Bo Ya couldn’t help laughing as she shook her head, “The other Demon Saints don’t have a ranking, but Lord Huang Wuji is the publicly acknowledged number one Demon Saint!”
“Is he the strongest?” Yang Kai asked.
“He is also the most qualified Demon Saint,” Bo Ya nodded slightly.
Yang Kai looked at him carefully and memorized his face before asking, “Which race is he from?”
Yang Kai secretly felt a headache coming on. The Demon Race, born from Strength Demon Race, was known for their strength, and this Demon Race was also the strongest and most qualified. His strength had probably reached an unimaginable level, and it's unknown who in the Star Boundary could fight with him.
Afterwards, under Bo Ya’s guidance, Yang Kai recognized all of these Demon Saints. In fact, Bo Ya had never seen these Demon Saints before, but the racial characteristics of these people were too obvious. Many of these Demon Saints were famous throughout the Demon Territory, so all Bo Ya needed to do was identify them based on their characteristics.
Flame Demon Chi Yan, Feather Demon Fu Yu, Stone Demon Mo Kan, Shadow Demon Wu Hua, Corpse Demon Zu Liao, Bone Demon Ge Meng, Sand Demon You Qiu…
Together with Succubus Yu Rumeng, Snow Demon Bei Limo, Red Demon Huo Bo, Blood Demon Xue Li, and Strength Demon Huang Wuji, these were the twelve Demon Saints who stood at the pinnacle of the Demon Territory. All of them are here, and behind these twelve Demon Saints, besides the Red Demon, they were the strongest race in the Demon Territory.
Staring at the mirror, Yang Kai held his breath.
It was like the calm before a storm. On the battlefield not far away, Bright Moon was facing off against the twelve Demon Saints, one in the light and one in the dark. His expression was calm and indifferent, and the many Demon Saints didn’t seem to have any intention of attacking first. Although they had the absolute advantage in numbers and were confident that Bright Moon would remain here forever, if Bright Moon desperately resisted, he might have a chance to heavily injure one or two of them. If they wasn’t careful, they might even end up dying together with him.
As such, even though the Demon Saints had the advantage in the battle, none of them attacked first. What’s more, their plan wasn’t to kill Bright Moon here, but rather to exhaust as much of his strength as possible to create an opportunity for the remaining Half-Saints to kill him.
The world was completely silent, not even breathing could be heard.
This confrontation lasted for several days and nights. The figures of the Great Emperor and the Demon Saints were like an eternal painting, motionless, causing Yang Kai’s heart to burn with anxiety.
Although he was not on the battlefield, Yang Kai knew that the longer he delayed, the less chance Bright Moon would have to escape. Although they had been confronting each other for several days, Bright Moon had not been able to recover in the past few days. The auras of the twelve Demon Saints were all locked onto him, so as long as he showed even the slightest opening, he would immediately suffer a storm of attacks. He had to maintain a high level of concentration at all times in order to deal with such a difficult situation. Under such circumstances, his vitality was constantly being consumed, so how could he possibly recover?
Even Yang Kai, a bystander, understood this obvious principle, so how could Bright Moon, who was in the center of this vortex, not know? In order to break out of this situation, Bright Moon had to take the risk to act, only then would he have a chance to survive. If this confrontation continued, his situation would only become worse.
At a certain moment, Bright Moon suddenly moved, slowly raising his hand and forming a hand seal in front of his chest, his body suddenly covered in a soft glow.
The moment he made his move, all the Demon Saints’ expressions changed as Demonic Qi surged from their bodies.
On the surface of the Demon Artifact Mirror, Xue Li’s figure flickered as he transformed into a bloody light and rushed towards Bright Moon. The bloody light instantly transformed into a blood net that seemed to be able to corrode all things as it descended towards Bright Moon.
Bright Moon's other hand gripped the air and a long sword seemingly condensed from moonlight appeared in him palm. Without even looking at it, he slashed out.
The blood net split into two and flew past Bright Moon's body, condensing into Xue Li’s figure once again before spitting out a bloody mist towards Bright Moon.
Bright Moon had no time to care about anything else. A round moon suddenly appeared behind his back and hovered above his head. The moonlight illuminated the area and the bloody mist quickly evaporated. At the same time, his sword flashed like a dragon and the moonlight sword transformed into a rain of swords that covered his body.
A cluster of dark red balls flew towards him, it was Huo Bu who had taken advantage of Xue Li’s distraction to launch a sneak attack. Yang Kai could clearly see that these dark red balls had been launched by Huo Bu from afar and were extremely fast.
When the sword net collided with the dark red ball, a loud bang rang out and the ball exploded, as if the Red Demon had self-destructed one after another. Bright Moon’s figure was enveloped in a blinding light.
Whoosh... Whoosh... Whoosh...
Three beams of light shot over from the distance. It was Feather Demon Fu Yu, who had used her Supreme Arrows.
There was also a Bone Demon covered in bones approaching from below. As it approached, it opened its teeth and let out a terrifying cracking sound.
As the sandstorm rose, the Shadow Demon had already concealed itself. Stone Demon’s body glowed with a stone luster as he took the lead, using his powerful defense as a meat shield to block Bright Moon's magnificent moonlight.
A cold wind blew and snowflakes danced in the air. Each snowflake was like a sharp blade, and under the raging wind, it whipped up a storm of snowflakes. On the other side, a blazing light illuminated the world. The Flame Demon’s Chi Yan was surrounded by raging flames, wanting to incinerate this world.
A dream-like murmur rang out as the scenery on the Demon Artifact Mirror rapidly changed.
With a single move from Bright Moon, the twelve Demon Saints attacked together, causing a fierce battle to break out on the distant battlefield.
The scenery on the surface of the Demon Artifact Mirror shook violently as all kinds of light filled it, causing deafening explosions to ring out.
Yang Kai could no longer see what was happening over there. His hands were tightly clasped around the edge of the Demon Artifact Mirror, his expression somewhat solemn.
Bo Ya turned to look at him curiously and thought for a moment before consoling, “The twelve Great Lords are all there, so the Saint Venerable will definitely be fine. Great King doesn’t need to worry too much.”
Yang Kai remained silent. He wasn’t worried about Yu Rumeng, he was worried about Bright Moon!
Back then, the Demon Saints had been able to severely injure Bright Moon and trap him in the Eternal Heaven Continent, so it was only natural that they could do so now. Moreover, compared to that day, the current lineup of Demon Saints was even stronger, so Bright Moon's situation was truly worrying.
From the very beginning, the battle showed no signs of stopping. Whether it was Bright Moon or the many Demon Saints, all of them seemed to be trying to decide who was superior here. Occasionally, when the scenery in the mirror became fixed, Yang Kai would be able to see some blurry scenes.
Without exception, it was Bright Moon who was being besieged, his situation becoming more severe.
To be able to fight so many enemies by himself was already a rare feat, but even if he were to risk his life, how much chance would he have?
Yang Kai didn’t know what Bright Moon was thinking, but now that things had come to this, his chances of escaping from the Demon Territory were slim. He repeatedly estimated his strength, thinking that if he rushed forward, he would be able to help, but what made Yang Kai feel disheartened was that even if he used all of his trump cards, he still wouldn’t be able to approach the battlefield.
His nails had already dug into his flesh, and golden blood stained the edges of the Demon Mirror, his face so fierce that it looked like he wanted to eat someone.
Bo Ya and the others also felt Yang Kai’s bad mood, all of them remaining silent, none of them daring to interrupt.
Time passed by slowly, and with the help of Yu Rumeng’s occasional attacks, Yang Kai was able to see the situation on the battlefield through the Demon Mirror. Bright Moon was already covered in blood and wounds, his face as pale as paper. Even if he hadn’t appeared in person, Yang Kai could still feel that the power of his Secret Technique was far inferior to before.
On the other hand, the Demon Saints were able to deal with this situation with ease. The twelve Demon Saints’ innate Divine Abilities were all different, and their coordination with each other was perfect. At every moment, two or three Demon Saints would gather around Bright Moon and disturb him, causing him to be severely wounded by the Demon Saints who were proficient in long-range attacks.
There was also Shadow Demon Saint, Wu Hua, who could appear and disappear unpredictably and leave scars on Bright Moon's body whenever he was caught off guard.
The round moon hanging behind Bright Moon was now a murky yellow, no longer able to emit its previous light.
Heaven and earth collapsed as massive cracks appeared in the void, as if the world itself was opening its giant mouth, mocking the incompetence of ants.
After an unknown period of time, in the midst of the chaotic battlefield, Bright Moon suddenly let out a light laugh and said in a low voice, “Having received such great favor from all the Saints, this Ming Yue is extremely honored. Even if I die here, I have no regrets, but… my life is not something you can take as you please!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a burst of light suddenly filled the world, causing the Demon Artifact Mirror to turn a brilliant white. Immediately after, a terrifying aura spread out from a distant place and swept across the four directions.
Yang Kai suddenly raised his head and looked in that direction, his face pale and his body swaying.
Was Ming Yue forced into a corner and was about to self-destruct?
For a Great Emperor, unless he had no other choice, it was impossible for him to choose such a decisive method to end his life. At this moment, Yang Kai felt as if someone was gripping his heart, making him feel as if he couldn’t breathe.
