“Ha,” Yang Kai once again placed the Soul Slaying Blade on his shoulder and stroked his chin with his other hand, “This Young Master’s luck is quite good. If it was anyone else, they would have long been killed.”
Xuan Bing remained silent, her expression constantly changing, no one knew what she was thinking.
Yang Kai looked around for a moment before speaking in an unquestionable tone, “There are two paths. I’ll cut you down with a single blade, or I’ll cut you down with a single blade. You two choose.”
As he spoke, he slowly raised the Soul Slaying Blade. As his Divine Sense surged, the blade’s light flickered like a poisonous snake’s tongue.
Xuan Bing and Bei Limo’s expressions both changed slightly. The two women had never imagined that the situation would develop to such a state. They had been fighting like fire and water here, fighting to the death, yet Yang Kai had taken advantage of them.
Without any hesitation, Bei Limo turned to Xuan Bing and said, “I’ll count to three, you and I will withdraw together!” At this time, only if she and Xuan Bing reached a temporary compromise and stopped at the same time would they be able to escape this crisis. Otherwise, if Yang Kai really cut her down, even if she was a Demon Saint, she would still die here.
Saying so, she began counting.
Yang Kai sneered from the side as the Soul Slaying Blade’s aura became increasingly dangerous.
Before Bei Limo could count to three, the Soul Slaying Blade slashed towards her mercilessly.
To Yang Kai, Bei Limo was undoubtedly more dangerous than Xuan Bing, so if he wanted to kill them, he would have to kill this Demon Saint first. Right now, Xuan Bing's Soul Avatar was already translucent, so there was nothing to fear.
Ming Yue had only fallen less than a month ago, so if he could kill a Demon Saint on this side, he would be able to avenge him.
Bei Limo’s expression changed drastically when she saw this blade light slash towards her, and she quickly withdrew her hand, not caring about her own injuries.
“Wait!” Xuan Bing suddenly shouted, “I have something to say!”
The blade light landed on Bei Limo’s head and a sharp energy cut into this Demon Saint’s Soul Avatar, causing her to feel a piercing pain, causing her face to pale and her soul to tremble.
Yang Kai tilted his head towards Xuan Bing and coldly said, “Enough nonsense, I don’t have much patience.”
Xuan Bing bluntly said, “Do you want a Demon Saint who will obey your every word and serve you? If you want, you’d better listen to me.”
“What?” Yang Kai raised his brow in surprise, “What do you mean?”
“The literal meaning.”
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before turning his head to look at Bei Limo and coldly saying, “Don’t tell me you can help me take her in.” If he wanted to subdue someone, it was no different from planting a Soul Brand in their Knowledge Sea or forcing them to hand over their Soul Mark, allowing him to control their life and death with a single thought.
Yang Kai had done this more than once, but that was on the premise that his Soul cultivation was stronger than his opponent’s. Only then would he be able to break through his opponent’s Soul defense. Bei Limo was a Demon Saint, so Yang Kai didn’t have the confidence to determine her life or death.
Xuan Bing sneered, “The difference in strength between the two of you is too great, even with my help, how can you subdue her!” Pausing for a moment, the corner of her mouth curled up, “But this Queen has her own plans.”
Yang Kai narrowed his eyes and pondered for a moment before asking, “Even if you have the ability to do so, what benefits will it bring you?”
“Of course it won’t be good for me!” Xuan Bing sneered, “Not only will it not be good for me, but it will also be bad for me. However, this Queen has said that even if this Queen dies, she won’t let this slut off easy!”
Hearing this, Bei Limo said solemnly, “Boy, this woman is full of tricks, don’t fall into her trap.”
Yang Kai immediately pushed the Soul Slaying Blade down a bit and pointed his chin towards her, “Before I allow you to speak, if you dare say another word, I’ll cut you down!”
Bei Limo trembled in anger, her eyes filled with hatred.
Seeing that she had calmed down, Yang Kai turned to Xuan Bing and asked, “Tell me in detail, how do you want to help me?” He had to admit that Xuan Bing's words were extremely attractive to him. Compared to subduing a Demon Saint, although killing a Demon Saint wasn’t bad, the benefits he could obtain were too small.
“Naturally, it’s a Soul Brand.”
“Are you joking with me?” Yang Kai’s face sank, feeling like he had been deceived, causing his mood to plummet.
Xuan Bing chuckled lightly, “Of course I’m not joking, I know what you’re worried about. It’s just that this slut’s Soul is stronger than yours, so you won’t be able to break through her Soul’s defences. But what if someone takes the initiative to cooperate?”
Yang Kai’s expression became even uglier, “Is she an idiot? Why would she cooperate with such a thing!” As he spoke, he lost his patience and his aura became dangerous.
“Of course she won’t cooperate, but this Queen will.” Xuan Bing chuckled, a look of madness appearing on her face.
Originally, Bei Limo didn’t take her words to heart, but after hearing what she said, she suddenly seemed to think of something and her expression changed. She glared at Xuan Bing angrily, a trace of fear appearing in her beautiful eyes.
Her change in expression couldn’t be hidden from Yang Kai, making him feel that Xuan Bing's words were somewhat believable.
Xuan Bing continued, “You can plant a brand in this Queen’s Soul. In this way, this Queen’s life and death will be under your control, and then…” Her eyes coldly glanced towards Bei Limo, “This Queen will try to seize this slut’s body. If I succeed, my life and death will still be in your hands, but if I fail…”
“What happens if you fail?” Yang Kai asked with narrowed eyes.
“This slut will swallow this Queen’s Soul, so that Soul Brand will naturally be transferred to her,” Xuan Bing laughed madly, “So, whether this Queen succeeds or fails, you will easily subdue a Demon Saint, how about this deal?”
As her voice fell, Yang Kai’s pupils suddenly dilated. If it was really as Xuan Bing had said, this was a transaction without any cost, and it would be extremely rewarding. It was truly tempting, but how could he easily believe Xuan Bing's words?
Seeing Bei Limo’s anxious expression, Yang Kai immediately asked, “What do you have to say?”
Bei Limo hurriedly said, “Don’t believe her, she’s just lying to you.”
Yang Kai turned his head to look at Xuan Bing, and Xuan Bing coldly smiled, “Everything I said is true. Boy, if you have the ability to distinguish right from wrong, you naturally know that I can’t deceive you in this matter.”
Bei Limo snorted, “Is that so? In the end, no matter which one of us devours the other, the power of our Souls will be incomparable to his. So what if he has a Soul Brand to restrain us? It will only take some time for us to break through.”
Xuan Bing said, “You also said that it will take some time to break it, what if he stabilizes the strength of his Soul Brand every once in a while?”
Bei Limo’s expression changed drastically as she grit her teeth, “You’re digging your own grave!”
Xuan Bing laughed, “Are you afraid? It’s good that you’re afraid. This Queen is only repaying you for everything you’ve done in the past. Do you know how Master has endured these tens of thousands of years? If it weren’t for the fact that I wanted to take revenge, Master would have died long ago.” Turning her head, she gritted her teeth and said to Yang Kai, “Boy, if you’re interested, you should quickly lend me a hand, otherwise, if you really let her escape, you’ll have wasted your efforts.”
“How can I help you?” Yang Kai asked in a low voice. In this short period of time, Yang Kai had already thought things through. He couldn’t not be tempted by Xuan Bing's proposal. At this point, he could only take a risk. If he succeeded, he could really subdue a Demon Saint.
“Activate the power of the Soul Warming Lotus and supplement this Queen’s Soul Force,” Xuan Bing gritted her teeth and shouted.
Yang Kai didn’t hesitate and immediately used the Soul Warming Lotus’ power as she had said, causing seven colored light to burst out and envelop her. Xuan Bing which had been stuck in a deadlock with Bei Limo couldn’t help letting out a groan as her translucent body began to solidify at a speed visible to the naked eye. Not only that, but her body also began to glow brilliantly, making it look extremely mysterious.
Bei Limo’s expression was so gloomy that it could drip water.
“Open your Divine Sense!” Yang Kai shouted.
Xuan Bing hesitated for a moment before deciding to act.
As Yang Kai’s Divine Sense surged, chains suddenly appeared and wrapped around Xuan Bing’s Soul Avatar before disappearing into her body.
At the same time, Yang Kai felt a strange sensation in his heart, but before he could fully comprehend it, Xuan Bing spoke, “You can leave now, the next battle will be between me and her.”
As soon as his voice fell, a powerful repulsive force came from all directions and pushed Yang Kai out of this Soul Battlefield.
Yang Kai only had time to curse before his vision blurred and his Soul returned to his body.
A fragrant breeze blew in front of him, along with a faint smell of blood. Looking up, he saw that he was still in the same position as before, his dragon claw resting on Bei Limo’s chest as he held the beating Demon Heart.
The Embodiment sensed something and immediately flew over, asking, “What happened?”
“It’s a long story!” Yang Kai’s Divine Sense surged as he shared what had happened in the Soul Battlefield with his Embodiment.
A moment later, his Embodiment showed a look of surprise, “It can actually be done like this?”
Yang Kai’s face darkened, “Now it seems I was deceived by that Xuan Bing.”
At the last moment, when he had branded the Xuan Bing Divine Soul’s body, the strange feeling he had felt made him realize that even if he had branded it with his Soul, he would not be able to control the life and death of a Demon Saint. The gap between their Souls was simply too great.
“Do you want to…” The Embodiment stared at the motionless Bei Limo in front of him, showing a pained look on his face as he stretched out his hand to slit his throat.
Now was indeed the best time to kill Bei Limo. The other party would not resist at all, and Yang Kai could easily chop her into a pile of meat paste, but if he did so, everything he had done before would be in vain.
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai said, “Let’s wait and see.”
Although he wasn’t able to control the life and death of a Demon Saint, the Soul Brand was not completely useless. Now it all depended on how big the effect is.
