When the Demon King took the Mysterious Boundary Bead and looked up, he found that there was no one in front of him, causing him to become somewhat suspicious. If not for the mark in his Knowledge Sea and the bead in his hand, he would have thought he was hallucinating.
Looking around, trying to find any trace of that fellow from before, an unbearable pain filled his mind, as if his soul was about to be torn apart.
His heart went cold as he knew that even if that guy was hiding in the shadows just now, he must have been observing him and had the ability to kill him at any moment. This was definitely a warning.
What did he tell me just now? Oh, swallowing the bead and passing through the World Gate…
Looking at the Mysterious Boundary Bead in his hand, this Demon King’s heart was filled with anxiety. This thing didn’t seem to be anything special, but he didn’t know if it was poisonous or not, causing him to be filled with grief and indignation. He hadn’t provoked anyone yet, but now a disaster had suddenly fallen from the sky, so how could he explain this?
Even his Knowledge Sea had been branded with a Soul brand, so even if this bead was really poisonous, he would have to swallow it, so after a moment of hesitation, he swallowed the Mysterious Boundary Bead and flew towards the World Gate with a dark expression.
He had no choice but to go. There was clearly an aura in his Knowledge Sea that had locked onto his Soul and could destroy it at any moment!
It didn’t take long for him to arrive near the World Gate. Looking up, he saw that the World Gate was surrounded by a large Demon Race army, many of which were emitting Demon Kings’ auras as they interrogated the passing Demon Race.
Only now did he understand why that little brat had asked him to pass through the World Gate. So it was because he had committed a crime, but what exactly had he done to actually send so many great figures to pursue him?
If it weren’t for the danger in his Knowledge Sea that could shatter his soul at any moment, he would have been more than happy to report it, but the aura that had locked onto his Soul prevented him from acting rashly.
In his heart, he thought that as long as he passed through the World Gate, he would be able to explore the vast world. At that time, no matter how great that brat’s abilities were, he wouldn’t be able to find him. After all, with so many people guarding him, it was impossible for that brat to pass through the World Gate quietly. If he really had the ability, he wouldn’t force him to do such a thing.
As he flew towards the World Gate in fear and trepidation, a Demon Commander immediately stretched out his hand to stop him and coldly said, “Stop! Where are you coming from? Where are you going?”
The Demon King squeezed out a smile, cupped his fists, and answered these questions carefully.
The Demon Commander glanced at him before reaching out and unfurling a scroll in front of him, “Have you seen this guy before?”
Focusing his eyes, this Demon King’s eyelids twitched because the image on the painting was clearly the boy he had just encountered. Knowing that this boy had committed a crime, he quickly shook his head, “I’ve never seen him before.”
As the Demon Commander put away the scroll, he lightly said, “If you see this person, immediately report to me. If the news is confirmed, you will be rewarded with a Hundred Myriad Demon Pills! If you can capture him, you will be rewarded with five hundred!”
“A hundred Myriad Demon Pills!” Hearing this, the Demon King couldn’t help exclaiming, his eyes turning red.
Although he was a Demon King, he was only a Low-Rank Demon King and had not been able to survive on his own continent. The Myriad Demon Pill was something he had only heard of and had never seen before. If he was given a hundred Myriad Demon Pills, it would be enough for him to cultivate to the High-Rank Demon King Realm, but if he could capture that boy, it would be five hundred pills!
What kind of concept was this? If he really had so many Myriad Demon Pills, he wouldn’t have to worry about it for the rest of his life. Only Demon Saints could produce so many Myriad Demon Pills at once, even Half-Saint cultivators wouldn’t be able to afford it.
He couldn’t help swallowing his saliva, almost blurting out that he knew, but thinking about his life, he swallowed his words.
Although the Myriad Demon Pill was good, one had to have a life to refine it. If one lost their life, what use would the Myriad Demon Pill be?
Carefully asking, “What did this boy do?”
The Demon Commander said, “He have ruined the plans of all the Saint Venerable, and now many of them are working together to capture him.”
It was actually related to a Saint Venerable, and it was related to all the Saint Venerable… Hearing this, the Demon King couldn’t help sweating, faintly feeling as if he had been swept up in an incredible matter.
As he continued forward, he went through a series of inspections and even his Space Ring was searched before finally being allowed to leave.
He secretly made up his mind that as long as he passed through the World Gate and confirmed his safety, he would immediately send someone to inform them. If he couldn’t obtain the reward of five hundred Myriad Demon Pills, he could at least obtain a hundred pills, right?
A short while later, he passed through the World Gate and arrived at another continent. Looking around suspiciously, he gritted his teeth and said, “I’ve finished what you asked me to do. Is there anything else?”
The surroundings fell silent and no one responded.
Hahaha, i knew that this little brat wouldn’t be able to pass through the World Gate with me. This Demon King was overjoyed, and after slightly identifying the direction he was going, he quickly flew off in a certain direction, his eyes turning red as if he had seen a hundred Myriad Demon Pills waving at him.
But at this moment, he felt a slight pain in his Knowledge Sea.
His figure staggered and he nearly fell from the sky. After stabilizing himself, he looked around with cold sweat dripping from his forehead.
Impossible, this was already another continent, so how could that little brat’s methods affect me? Could it be that he was nearby? But that didn’t make sense. If he really could pass through the World Gate without anyone noticing, why would he need me?
Just as he was becoming suspicious, the pain in his Knowledge Sea increased slightly, causing him to cry out in fright, “I didn’t expose your existence, let’s talk!”
As his voice fell, the pain also disappeared, but before he could catch his breath, the pain returned.
After repeating this process over again, the Demon King was also exhausted and said with a sad face, “What do you want? Tell me, stop torturing me.”
No matter who walked on the edge of life and death, they would not feel good. This kind of crisis where one’s Soul could be destroyed at any moment was simply a great torture.
However, no matter how he tried to put in a good word, the boy just now did not respond.
After a long time, the Demon King’s expression suddenly changed as he opened his mouth and spat out the bead he had swallowed before, a look of shock and doubt appearing on his face.
When this bead was spat out, a figure flashed in front of him and the figure who had tortured him suddenly appeared in front of him.
At this moment, Yang Kai’s face was also cold as he lightly snorted, “I thought you hadn’t opened your eyes yet.” If this guy didn’t spit out the Mysterious Boundary Bead, Yang Kai would have no choice but to break out of his body.
Saying so, he put away the Mysterious Boundary Bead.
The Demon King’s eyes widened as he stared at Yang Kai, then at the Mysterious Boundary Bead, stammering, “You… you…”
Yang Kai said with a straight face, “You don’t need to concern yourself with my affairs. I need to go to the Cloud Shadow Continent, and seeing your performance just now, I’ll let you take me to the Cloud Shadow Continent.”
Hearing this, the Demon King’s heart was filled with grief, but under the eaves, he couldn’t help lowering his head, the grievance in his heart simply increasing.
Yang Kai ignored him and directly threw out his Tiger Head Chariot, waving towards the Demon King before taking the lead to board it. After the Demon King arrived, Yang Kai had already set a route and circulated his Emperor Qi, transforming the chariot into a stream of light and flying off into the distance.
With the experience of coordinating with one another, things became much easier.
Whenever he was near the World Gate, Yang Kai would hide inside the Mysterious Boundary Bead and let the Demon King swallow it before allowing him to enter another continent through the layers of barriers.
After arriving at a safe place, Yang Kai stepped out again and urged the Tiger Head Chariot forward.
This way, although it would waste a lot of time, it was still safer.
No one would have thought that Yang Kai was hiding inside a bead and using the Demon Race’s tight security, Yu Rumeng might be able to see through this, but it was impossible for her to communicate with other Demon Saints.
After four or five days, they finally arrived at Yu Rumeng’s territory.
Unlike the other Demon Saints territories, the World Gates on Yu Rumeng’s territories didn’t show any signs of being guarded. This was probably the only place in the entire Demon Territory that wasn’t guarded.
This made Yang Kai feel slightly relieved.
To him, Yu Rumeng was different from the other Demon Saints.
After a few more twists and turns, they finally returned to Cloud Shadow Continent.
“This is the Cloud Shadow Continent. Sir Yang, I have already completed your request, can you… let me go now?” After arriving at Cloud Shadow, Huo Lun looked at Yang Kai with a face full of hesitation. Although he knew there was little hope, he still wanted to fight for it.
After spending a few days together, although they didn’t have a deep understanding of each other, they at least knew each other’s names.
Yang Kai glanced at him and asked lightly, “Do you think that’s possible?”
Huo Lun’s face went pale as he took a few steps back and angrily asked, “Does Sir really want to kill me?”
This was truly an undeserved catastrophe. He had been travelling without provoking anyone, yet now he had to face a life or death crisis. He secretly made up his mind that if Yang Kai really wanted him dead, he would first gnaw on his flesh and blood.
“That’s not the case. No matter what, you’ve helped me a great deal. If I really killed you, it would make me seem a bit unreasonable, but it’s impossible for me to let you go,” Yang Kai chuckled and raised the Mysterious Boundary Bead in his hand, “I’m sure you’ve guessed what kind of use this thing has.”
Huo Lun looked at the Mysterious Boundary Bead and nodded helplessly.
Over the past few days, Yang Kai had been going in and out of the Mysterious Boundary Bead right under his nose. Only a fool would not be able to understand its mysteries.
This was definitely a treasure that could contain living things!
“I’ll give you a choice, die or be taken in by me,” Yang Kai stared at him.
Huo Lun’s expression only showed a moment of hesitation before he smiled bitterly, “Do I have any other choice?” As he spoke, his entire body relaxed as if he had accepted his fate.
“Wise choice!” Yang Kai stretched out his hand and grabbed him, sending the Space Law into the Mysterious Boundary Bead.
