Inside the Eternal Heaven Continent’s mountain valley, the unconscious Li Shiqing slowly woke up. Looking around, she couldn’t see any trace of Yang Kai. On the other hand, the Demon Artifact Mirror Yu Rumeng had left behind was surrounded by a large number of Demon Race cultivators, all of them staring nervously towards the mirror.
Rubbing her neck, Li Shiqing thought about what happened before she fainted and vaguely remembered that Yang Kai had knocked her out…
Right, there was still the Great Emperor in danger! With this one thought, Li Shiqing completely woke up.
At this moment, the demons gathered around the mirror suddenly let out a cry of surprise, as if they had just witnessed an incredible scene. Suspicious, Li Shiqing stepped forward and peered into the mirror, her beautiful eyes widening and her body trembling.
Inside the mirror, there were two figures, two figures that she had seen from a distance. Although they weren’t very close, Li Shiqing could still identify them.
One was Yang Kai, the other was Bright Moon Great Emperor!
At this moment, Yang Kai’s fist had actually smashed into the Bright Moon Great Emperor’s chest, creating a huge hole in it, causing blood to flow from the corner of the Great Emperor’s mouth. His originally white clothes were now completely dyed red.
Just what had happened while he was unconscious? Why was the final result like this? Yang Kai had actually killed a Great Emperor!
This horrifying thought and the shocking scene in front of her eyes transformed into an endless buzz that Li Shiqing couldn’t bear. Her vision went black and she fainted again.
In the void, Yang Kai flipped onto Wind Chaser's back, and with a loud cry, Wind Chaser carried Yang Kai towards the nearest World Gate, his four hooves burning with golden flames as he left a mark in the void.
Countless strands of Divine Sense locked onto Yang Kai’s body as a thick killing intent spread out. Even though Yang Kai knew that Yu Rumeng was in the Eternal Heaven Continent, he didn’t feel any sense of security.
In this current situation, Yu Rumeng probably wouldn’t be able to protect him. If he wanted to live, all he had to do was flee as far as he could. It would be best if he could pass through the Two Worlds Passage and escape back to the Star Boundary!
The Demon Territory’s twelve Demon Saints and even Night Shadow Great Emperor Can Ye had all gathered in the Eternal Heaven Continent, so now was the best time for him to escape.
He faintly regretted not bringing Li Shiqing into the Mysterious Small World in advance. If he escaped now, Li Shiqing would definitely suffer a calamity, but at this moment, he couldn’t care less about Li Shiqing. In comparison, the will of the Great World was the most important, and the will given to him by the Bright Moon Great Emperor couldn’t be lost.
Before the hundred or so Half-Saints in the surrounding area could react, Wind Chaser had already carried Yang Kai out of the encirclement, causing the other Half-Saints to burn with rage and use various methods to chase after him.
However, Wind Chaser's speed was his forte, so how could these Half-Saints catch up to him? From the very beginning, the distance between them had been rapidly increasing.
Many of the Demon Saints wore gloomy expressions, but Yu Rumeng’s expression was one of surprise and worry.
Although she had always known that Yang Kai was easier to accept the Star Boundary's will than the Half-Saint from the Demon Territory, because Yang Kai’s strength was insufficient, she had never thought of letting him participate in this opportunity.
However, she had never imagined that Yang Kai would become the final winner, and it seemed that Bright Moon Great Emperor had taken the initiative to deliver this opportunity.
In comparison, Yue Sang, who had been killed by Ming Yue, was nothing. In any case, Yue Sang had already submitted to Xue Li, so he couldn’t be considered her subordinate. If he died, so be it. But Yang Kai obtaining this opportunity was equivalent to taking a step forward in the future, so how could she not be happy?
What worried her was that this opportunity would not be so easily preserved.
Sure enough, just as this thought appeared in her mind, Xue Li’s angry shout rang out, “Bastard!”
Saying so, this guy transformed into a streak of blood light and chased after Yang Kai, seemingly wanting to personally stop him. Not only him, but the other Demon Saints also followed suit.
Even if the Half-Saints couldn’t catch up to Yang Kai, it didn’t mean that the Demon Saints couldn’t. Once these Demon Saints blocked Yang Kai’s path, he would be surrounded by hundreds of Half-Saints, and the final result would be obvious.
“You dare!” Yu Rumeng was furious, but just as she moved, a burly figure blocked her path.
Yu Rumeng’s face sank as she stared forward and asked, “Boss Huang, what do you mean by this?”
The one blocking her path was none other than the Demon Territory’s First Demon Saint, Huang Wuji. He raised his hand slightly in front of her, his actions seemingly forming an iron wall in front of Yu Rumeng. Even a Demon Saint like her would not be able to easily break through.
Huang Wuji looked in the direction the figures had left and said lightly, “You don’t need to interfere in this matter.”
Yu Rumeng grit her teeth and said, “Yang Kai is one of my people, how can I not interfere? Moreover, everyone said before that we won’t interfere with this opportunity, and they will fight for it with their own abilities. No matter what the result is, no one will complain, so what’s the point of them chasing after him one by one? Do they think I, Yu Rumeng, am easy to bully?”
Huang Wuji said lightly, “Our previous agreement was quite good, but the one we agreed on was a Half-Saint under each of our subordinates. That boy is from a Human Race.” Saying so, Huang Wuji turned to Yu Rumeng and said, “Those who are not of our race must have different intentions. How can such a great opportunity be handed over to him?”
Yu Rumeng said, “So what if he is a human? He has long since defected from the Star Boundary and has a Demon Thought in his heart. He has also made many contributions to my Demon Territory, so how could he not obtain that opportunity!”
Huang Wuji shook his head, “You know what we’re worried about, and his current strength is too low, so what if he obtains that opportunity? How much time will it take for him to fully mature?”
“My Demon Territory has twelve Demon Saints and one Great Emperor from the Star Boundary, but now there are only eight Great Emperors from the Star Boundary, and one of them, Hongchen Great Emperor, is still missing. One more Yang Kai isn’t much, one less is not much. What you want is just the expansion of the World Bottle, why wait for him to grow?”
Huang Wuji slowly shook his head, “Unless he can truly become a Demon and become a part of my Demon Race, he won’t be able to protect that opportunity.”
Hearing this, Yu Rumeng’s face paled as she anxiously looked in the direction Yang Kai had fled, clenching her fists so tightly that her fingertips hurt. Although Yang Kai had indeed entered the Demon Path once when he was in the Star Boundary and his body was filled with Demonic Qi, ever since he came to the Demon Territory, Yang Kai seemed to have returned to normal. It was extremely difficult to become a true Demon Race…
“Must he die?” Yu Rumeng stared at Huang Wuji with a pained expression, “If he dies, who will repair those World Gates?”
Huang Wuji lowered his eyes, “The opportunity is with him now. Only when he dies will others have a chance. As for those World Gates… let nature take its course.”
Yu Rumeng closed her eyes in pain, and after a long time, she suddenly opened them, the Demonic Qi in her body surging as she slammed her palm towards Huang Wuji, shouting, “I really can’t just sit back and watch, Big Brother Huang, please forgive me!”
With one hand behind his back, Huang Wuji didn’t move his feet but instead retreated a thousand feet, lightly avoiding Yu Rumeng’s attack and calmly saying, “Stop, I don’t want to hurt you.”
Yu Rumeng smiled in anger, “Unless I die, don’t even think about harming a single hair on his head!” As she spoke, she had already moved closer to Huang Wuji, her beautiful eyes suddenly releasing a strange light, as if it had transformed into a black hole, wanting to suck him in.
Huang Wuji lowered his eyes, not meeting her gaze, and with a single punch, a huge hole appeared in the already turbulent void, as if a mirror had been broken.
Yu Rumeng let out a delicate cry as she was swallowed up by the void.
Huang Wuji, on the other hand, didn’t show any joy in succeeding. Instead, he frowned and focused his attention on his surroundings.
A faintly discernible light laugh rang out beside his ear as the shattered world suddenly transformed into a world as beautiful as a fairyland, beautiful and incomparably real, causing even Huang Wuji, who was in it, to feel a sense of nostalgia. He couldn’t bear to destroy even a single blade of grass in this world, so he sighed lightly, knowing that he had been too careless.
As a fellow Demon Saint, Yu Rumeng wasn’t so easy to deal with. Although he was known as the First Demon Saint, that was only in terms of combat strength. In a life or death battle, he will definitely be the last one to survive, but the twelve Demon Saints each had their own Divine Abilities, so how could they be underestimated?
Thirty breaths later, by the time Huang Wuji escaped from this strange world, Yu Rumeng had already disappeared, obviously chasing after the other Demon Saints. However, with this delay, even if Yu Rumeng rushed over, it would be useless. As long as the Demon Saints caught up to this human race and blocked him, the Half-Saint masters would be able to tear him to pieces.
Along the way, Wind Chaser seemed to transform into a bolt of lightning as he shot through the void. The Half-Saints chasing after him were thrown further away, but even more powerful Divine Senses were locked onto him.
The Demon Saints had made their move!
Yang Kai was filled with grief and indignation, knowing that his guess was right. In this situation, Yu Rumeng really couldn’t protect him. Fortunately, he had seen the opportunity early and immediately rode on Wind Chaser to escape, otherwise he would have been a corpse by now.
The impact of Ming Yue’s death hadn’t disappeared yet. After all, he was the one who had personally killed him. Although it was a scene Ming Yue had deliberately created, the self-reproach in his heart still made Yang Kai feel somewhat depressed.
Wind Chaser's scream woke him up again. Yang Kai turned his head and saw a bloody light at terrifying speed approaching him from the horizon. It would probably take him less than ten breaths to catch up.
Following closely behind Xue Li was Fu Yu, the pure white wings on her back only slightly slower than Xue Li.
In this life or death crisis, Yang Kai grit his teeth and forcefully pushed his Space Laws to the limit. Placing one hand on Wind Chaser's back, Yang Kai tore through the void and instantly traversed a thousand kilometers. When he reappeared, Yang Kai spat out a mouthful of blood.
