Staring at the black shadow for a while, Yang Kai felt a headache coming on.
Right now, he was still in the process of breaking through, so it was impossible for him to ignore this damned thing in his Knowledge Sea. Otherwise, if he were to be disturbed at a critical moment, the consequences would be unimaginable.
But this thing couldn’t even be destroyed by the Soul Slaying Blade, and he didn’t know where it came from.
Logically speaking, since it was able to enter his Knowledge Sea, it should have been condensed into a Soul, so there was no reason for the Soul Slaying Blade to fail.
Turning his gaze to the center of the Seven Colored Treasure Island, Since Yang Kai saw that the Soul Slaying Blade was useless, he wondered if the Soul Devouring Insects could restrain it.
If the Soul Devouring Insects couldn't even deal with it, Yang Kai really didn’t know how to expel or kill this guy, but now he could only try his best.
With a single thought, a black cloud of insects flew out from the Seven Colored Treasure Island and, under Yang Kai’s control, instantly enveloped the black shadow.
The black shadow continued to charge towards the Soul Warming Lotus, completely ignoring the Soul Devouring Insects. Soon, the Soul Devouring Insects wrapped it up, and a terrifying cracking sound rang out.
Yang Kai stared at the black shadow’s condition coldly for a moment before his expression changed.
The Soul Devouring Insects lived up to their expectations and indeed had some effect on the black shadow, but the effect didn’t seem to be great. If it was an ordinary person’s Soul being eaten by the Soul Devouring Insects like this, they would probably collapse soon, but the black shadow was still full of vitality, jumping up and down.
However, as long as it was effective, Yang Kai was not afraid that even the Soul Devouring Insects wouldn’t be of any use. Although the current situation was unsatisfactory, as long as he had enough time, he could destroy this black shadow.
The situation in his Knowledge Sea had temporarily stabilized, so Yang Kai went to check the condition of his physical body.
Yang Kai didn’t know if it was because the problem with the black shadow had yet to be solved, but he was still unable to break through the invisible barrier and advance to the next realm. The aura of the Emperor Realm was constantly rising and falling.
The concentration of World Energy in the cave had clearly decreased, and the medicinal efficacy of the pills in his stomach was almost completely exhausted, so Yang Kai could only replenish it.
All the golden blood in his pores leaked out and Yang Kai felt as if he was being torn apart. Yang Kai’s heart was filled with bitterness, he had never experienced such hardship before.
It could be said that he had experienced the thorns and hardships of other people’s cultivation paths and couldn’t help feeling a bit enlightened. Everyone’s strength was hard to come by. On the road to the peak, every step they took would cost them ten or a hundred times more effort and risk than others. Looking back on his smooth journey, it was indeed a bit less than others.
This tribulation had finally made up for this deficiency.
Thinking so, the pain in his body seemed to lessen greatly and he gradually fell into a strange state.
At a certain moment, Yang Kai’s body trembled as he clearly felt some kind of change occurring in his Knowledge Sea, so he quickly immersed his consciousness to investigate.
Only to see that in the sky above the sea, the black shadow wrapped in Soul Devouring Insects was howling towards the sky as an invisible Spiritual Energy spread out, causing the waves to rise.
Yang Kai’s expression became serious as he quickly suppressed the abnormality in his Knowledge Sea and calmed his mind. Looking over, he saw that the black shadow was rapidly expanding and a dangerous aura was suddenly released.
Yang Kai’s expression changed as he quickly ordered the Soul Devouring Insects to retreat. At the same time, he activated the Soul Warming Lotus power, causing a seven colored light to spread out and cover his entire Knowledge Sea.
With a loud bang, the black shadow exploded. As the black light spread out, many Soul Devouring Insects that were unable to retreat in time were reduced to dust.
Yang Kai was also shaken to the point where his entire Soul Avatar was on the verge of collapse, unable to think for a moment.
With great difficulty, Yang Kai managed to stabilize his Soul Avatar and focus his attention. Looking up, Yang Kai was dumbfounded.
Inside his Knowledge Sea, there were a few black marks, as if someone had poured a drop of pitch-black ink here. Not only was this ink exuding a strong demonic aura, but it was also rapidly spreading out.
This scene really frightened Yang Kai.
Although he didn’t know what the consequences would be if this black ‘ink’ were to spread out, he could infer from the Demonic Qi that it would not end well for him.
In a moment of panic, he quickly used his Divine Sense to block the attack.
However, to his despair, as soon as his Divine Sense came into contact with the ‘ink’, it was immediately assimilated, causing the Demon Thought in his heart to grow even stronger.
On the Seven Colored Treasure Island, a purifying light blossomed, but it was unable to resist the assimilation of the ink.
After a moment of panic, Yang Kai could only watch helplessly as his Knowledge Sea was completely dyed black. Inside his Knowledge Sea, Demonic Qi filled the air, and the only thing that remained was the Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus in the middle.
Yang Kai clearly felt that his mental state had undergone some subtle changes, some kind of inexplicable change, but it had not reached the point of Qi deviation, because he could still think normally without losing his rationality.
It could even be said that this current state not only did not make him feel uncomfortable, but instead gave him an indescribable sense of comfort.
Did i really Become Devil?
At the same time this thought appeared, another voice rang out in his mind. So what if i Become Devil?
His Knowledge Sea began to churn again, but this time it wasn’t because there was something wrong with his Knowledge Sea, but because his physical body had changed.
With a single thought, Yang Kai’s Soul Avatar collapsed, and the moment his consciousness returned to his body, he felt his aura reach a new height. The power surging through his body was unprecedentedly strong, and all obstacles and bottlenecks were nothing in front of this power.
He didn’t make any deliberate movements and simply allowed the aura to rise. When all the pain in his body suddenly disappeared and was replaced by a comfortable feeling, an invisible wave of energy spread out from Yang Kai, shaking the cave’s rubble.
The door to a new realm slowly opened in front of Yang Kai.
Third Order Emperor Realm!
Seeing this, the Embodiment that had been standing guard at the side hurriedly cast a spell to suppress the sound of this breakthrough. Although this place was three thousand meters underground and even a Demon Saint might not be able to discover it if they didn’t search carefully, he still had to take precautions.
With its suppression, it could ensure that the commotion here wouldn’t spread too far.
However, when the Embodiment looked over at Yang Kai happily, preparing to congratulate him on successfully breaking through, it suddenly discovered that the momentum rising from Yang Kai’s body had yet to reach its limit. It seemed like it was only the beginning, and was still constantly rising.
The Embodiment was stunned, not knowing what was happening.
What made it feel that something was wrong was that as Yang Kai’s aura rose, an incomparably powerful suction force emerged from his body, crazily devouring the surrounding World Energy.
In the blink of an eye, all of the spiritual mist in the cave was completely swallowed up, and soon after, all of the Demonic Qi in the world rushed towards Yang Kai’s pores.
In a very short time, Yang Kai’s body was covered by a faint layer of black Qi.
The Embodiment turned pale with fright and hurriedly rushed forward.
Yang Kai’s current state was similar to a Qi Deviation.
Because it cultivated the Heaven Devourer Battle Law and its body was a Stone Puppet, it could freely swallow Demonic Qi without any worries, but Yang Kai was different. Without its various advantages, he would not have a good ending if he swallowed the surrounding Demonic Qi.
Just as it was about to step forward to stop it, Yang Kai suddenly opened his eyes and glanced at it indifferently.
The Embodiment’s steps immediately came to a halt as it saw a cold and indifferent look in Yang Kai’s eyes, causing it to become somewhat flustered. It didn’t know what kind of mistake Yang Kai had made during his breakthrough, to cause such a change.
However, Yang Kai’s intentions were also very obvious.
Therefore, the Embodiment only hesitated for a moment before standing in place and quietly observing. It was just a Soul Clone, how could it interfere with the actions of its main soul?
Inside the cave, a violent wind blew, only the sound of the Demonic Qi being swallowed up present. As time passed, the faint layer of black Qi around Yang Kai’s body became denser and more rich
Contrary to his Embodiment’s worries, Yang Kai was actually enjoying his current state. He could clearly feel his strength slowly becoming stronger, and with the Soul Warming Lotus protecting the last pure land in his Knowledge Sea, there was no risk of him falling into the Demon Path.
This time… it would be a blessing in disguise!
Just as he was thinking about this, a sound came from the depths of his soul. Yang Kai frowned and carefully examined his dantian, only to discover that a crack had appeared there.
Ever since he had cooperated with Iron Blood and released the seal on his dantian, Yang Kai had used the power of the Azure Tree to seal it.
However, the result of many unsealing attempts was that the Demonic Qi of the Ancient Demon Seal was becoming more powerful. If it were to happen again, the power of the Azure Tree would not be able to completely seal it, let alone now when the Seal power of the Azure Tree had not even grown much.
At this moment, a crack appeared on the seal, causing Yang Kai to jump in fright.
Yang Kai wouldn’t have thought it was a big deal if he had simply swallowed the Demonic Qi brought about by his breakthrough, but the Ancient Demonic Qi in his dantian was a big problem.
He didn’t know if it was because he was absorbing the Demonic Qi at this moment, but at this moment, the Ancient Demonic Qi in his dantian was madly attacking the seal, tearing it open.
This had never happened before.
Before Yang Kai could figure out how to deal with it, the crack had already expanded.
Immediately after, the violent Demonic Qi from his dantian surged out and he swallowed everything directly.
As far as the eye could see, the place where Yang Kai stood seemed to have become a black hole, where thick Demonic Qi was entangled and the energy fluctuations emanating from it caused even the Embodiment to tremble in fear.
The suction force was even stronger than before, suddenly forming a massive suction force that drew in all the Demonic Qi in the world.
Three thousand meters above the ground, a giant tornado suddenly appeared, connecting the sky and the earth as a pitch-black Demon Qi poured into the ground, disappearing in the blink of an eye.
