Just as he was feeling sad, Yang Kai asked, “Let me ask you, how does this place feel different from the Demon Territory?”
Naturally, he didn’t dare not answer when Yang Kai ask him a question. Calming himself down, he said, “The World Energy isn’t too abundant, and the Laws here are somewhat weak. If you stay here for too long, your cultivation will likely regress.” The World Energy and Laws in the territory originally owned by the Mysterious Small World were quite abundant, but the newly absorbed and integrated territories were much weaker. After all, they were all fragments of the continent that had disappeared, so being able to fuse them back together was already a pleasant surprise.
After speaking, Huo Lun hesitated for a moment before carefully asking, “Sir, isn’t this place Demon Territory?” He was a Low-Rank Demon King after all, so suddenly coming from the Demon Territory to another world was somewhat suspicious.
“This place is naturally not a Demon Territory,” Yang Kai nodded, the corners of his mouth curling up, “But it may become another Demon Territory.”
“What… what do you mean?” Huo Lun was stunned.
“You don’t need to care about what I mean. I have a very important task for you. If you can complete it well, you may have a chance to regain your freedom in the future.”
Huo Lun was pleasantly surprised, “Sir, please speak, this humble one will do his best.”
“Live here with a peace of mind. This world may have some unexpected changes in the near future. What you need to do is to remember all of these changes in your heart and then tell me… perhaps one day you will be reluctant to leave this place.”
Only a ghost would be reluctant to leave this place, Huo Lun thought to himself as he quickly agreed, wondering what kind of mission this was, and what kind of changes could occur in this world?
In the midst of his doubts, Yang Kai had already disappeared. Huo Lun was shocked and quickly called out a few times, but after receiving no response, he couldn’t help feeling somewhat depressed. However, thinking about Yang Kai’s previous instructions, he could only pray that Yang Kai would keep his word and let him go one day.
A short while later, a tree house appeared on the top of the mountain. Since he wanted to live here, he had to have a place to live. It was easy for a Low-Rank Demon King to find a place for him to live, so he quickly built a tree house.
Inside the room, Yang Kai collected his thoughts, sat down cross-legged, and calmed his mind.
Ming Yue was already dead and couldn’t be resurrected. The only thing he could do now was complete Ming Yue’s request and protect his own opportunities. If he wanted to protect himself, he needed to have a powerful cultivation.
Since breaking through his shackles a few days ago, Yang Kai hadn’t had the time to properly experience his current state. Now that he had some free time, he naturally couldn’t wait to see the difference between himself and his previous self. Of course, the most important thing was to check if there were any hidden dangers.
With such a drastic change in his body’s strength, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a bit nervous, especially with the unsealing of the Ancient Demonic Qi seal in his dantian, which made him very worried about whether there would be any side effects.
A powerful Divine Sense swept across his body inch by inch, thoroughly examining him.
After a full day, Yang Kai finally let out a sigh of relief. This examination had allowed him to confirm that there was nothing wrong with his breakthrough. The strength in his body had been completely converted, and his flesh and meridians were completely unscathed. The vigorous and pure Demonic Qi flowing through his meridians was not hindered in the slightest.
Although his body was fine, Yang Kai still wore a somewhat distressed look on his face. His current state was that of a standard High-Rank Demon King, making him somewhat uncomfortable.
He really didn’t know if he would be chased like a Demon Race if he returned to the Star Boundary.
However, thinking about this now was useless, so Yang Kai simply pushed these thoughts to the back of his mind and tried to circulate his cultivation technique.
The Demonic Qi in the world suddenly surged towards Yang Kai, and as he breathed, it flowed through his pores and into his meridians, entering his dantian.
He really could cultivate freely in the Demon Territory.
Having been in the Demon Territory for so long, he had basically never cultivated before, mainly because the conditions were not right. This world was filled with Demonic Qi, completely different from the World Energy in the Star Boundary. If he recklessly absorbed it into his body, it might lead to unpredictable consequences. Since he didn’t cultivate the Heaven Devourer Battle Law like his Embodiment, he naturally didn’t dare try it.
But now, after completely entering the Demon Path, the environment of the Demon Territory no longer hindered his cultivation.
If he could absorb World Energy, what about Demon Crystals?
Without any hesitation, Yang Kai took out a large number of Demon Crystals from his Space Ring and shattered them. In an instant, the room was filled with a thick Demonic Qi, which poured into his body without any discomfort.
Immediately after, Yang Kai took out another Myriad Demon Pill and hesitated for a moment before swallowing it.
The Myriad Demon Pill was not a pill, but a special existence formed by the Myriad Demon Caves on the Demon Territory’s continents. The Myriad Demon Caves constantly devoured the vitality of the Demon Race on the continent, resulting in the Myriad Demon Caves producing the Myriad Demon Pill.
Yang Kai didn’t know why the Myriad Demon Caves had such a strange ability, but he knew that ever since the Demon Territory had collapsed and transformed into a continent, the Myriad Demon Caves had suddenly appeared.
The Myriad Demon Cave gave him an extremely strange feeling, as if each of them was a living being, but this didn’t stop the Myriad Demon Pills from having a powerful effect on the Demon Race. The Myriad Demon Pills produced in the Myriad Demon Cave were equivalent to the crystallization of the Demon Race’s vitality on each continent, containing a terrifying amount of energy.
It was all thanks to the Myriad Demon Pill that his Embodiment was able to reach the Half-Saint Realm in such a short time.
When the pill entered his stomach, Yang Kai didn’t feel anything at first, but soon, his lower abdomen suddenly became hot, as if what he had swallowed wasn’t a Myriad Demon Pill but a burning hot iron.
A massive amount of energy exploded in his lower abdomen and surged into every corner of his body, causing his flesh and blood to squirm and his meridians to expand.
Yang Kai was secretly shocked. Although he had long since known that the energy contained in the Myriad Demon Pill was unimaginable, he had only realized how much energy it contained when he consumed it.
No wonder only Demon Kings had the qualifications to enjoy the Myriad Demon Pill. If this pill was eaten by those under the Demon King, even a High-Rank Demon Chief Commander would immediately explode.
He was now a High-Rank Demon King, and his strength was far beyond that of an ordinary High-Rank Demon King, so a Myriad Demon Pill naturally couldn’t do anything to him.
Drawing the energy from his stomach, Yang Kai slowly began refining it into his body, and he could clearly feel his strength increasing.
Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a little emotional. The Myriad Demon Pill was more potent than any Emperor Pill, no wonder the Demon Race had a huge advantage over the Star Boundary in terms of numbers of Demon King level and above. It wasn’t just because the Demon Race had a larger population than the Star Boundary, but also because of the Myriad Demon Pill.
The difference in strength between the two worlds had been imbalanced from the beginning, but now that Ming Yue had died and one of the Great Emperors was missing, this imbalance was even more obvious.
If they allowed the war between the two worlds to continue, the Star Boundary would definitely be doomed. In less than ten years, the entire Star Boundary would fall, unless they could find a way to eliminate the number of Demon Saints.
But how could the Demon Saints be so easy to kill?
If he could use another method to end this war between the two worlds, it would give the Star Boundary a chance to survive.
Yang Kai felt that he had to hurry up and find a way out before the Demon Territory fully invaded and the Demon Saints enter the battlefield.
It took Yang Kai ten days to fully digest a Myriad Demon Pill, which was far slower than his Embodiment's speed. Because of his physique and cultivation technique, the speed at which his Embodiment consumed the Myriad Demon Pill was much faster than Yang Kai’s. Now that he had broken through to the Half-Saint Realm, his speed would definitely increase.
Fortunately, he had robbed nearly ten thousand Myriad Demon Pills from Bei Limo…
Opening the door to his room, Yang Kai summoned the maidservant and asked her about the situation. After learning that Yu Rumeng had not been looking for him recently and that she had no news for him, Yang Kai began cultivating again.
Another Myriad Demon Pill entered his stomach and he continued to refine it.
It wasn’t until he had refined a total of three Myriad Demon Pills that Yu Rumeng sent him a message.
The one who came to deliver this message was none other than Yang Kai’s old acquaintance, Bai Zhuo.
This guy had also participated in the Seizing of Opportunity in the Eternal Heaven Continent last time, but his luck wasn’t too good and he had been injured by Ming Yue. Recently, he had been recuperating in the Holy City, and if it weren’t for that, he would have rushed to the Two World Battlefield already.
When Yang Kai saw him, this guy’s face was still a bit pale and he would occasionally cough.
The two of them left the palace together and found a restaurant in the Holy City, drinking and chatting.
After three rounds of drinks, Bai Zhuo smiled slightly, “Brother Yang is indeed a man of great fortune. In the Eternal Heaven Continent battle, more than a hundred Half-Saints returned empty-handed, and more than a dozen Half-Saints even died. Only Brother Yang managed to seize this opportunity, it really makes us envious.”
Yang Kai drank the wine in his cup in one gulp and smiled, “The meaning of heavens is profound and unpredictable, who can say for sure? I didn’t want to snatch any opportunities that day, I just wanted to join in the fun.”
Bai Zhuo said enviously, “That’s why Brother Yang’s luck is so good.” So many Half-Saints had been eager to take action, but in the end, they had been taken advantage of by someone who was just here to join in on the fun. Bai Zhuo paused for a moment before continuing, “The Saint asked me to inform Brother Yang that Brother Yang’s matter has been settled, and the various Saint Venerables have also reached an agreement that they will not attack you again.”
This was within Yang Kai’s expectations. Since Huang Wuji had said so, he wouldn’t slap himself in the face, and the other Demon Saints would at least care about his face. In any case, in the eyes of the Demon Race, Yang Kai had completely fallen into the Demon Path, so he could be considered a part of the Demon Race. The opportunity he had was no different from any other Half-Saint.
That day, Xue Li had been forced to retreat because of this reason.
Hearing this, Yang Kai asked, “In other words, from now on, I will be safe in the Demon Territory?”
Bai Zhuo smiled meaningfully, “Relatively speaking, it will be much safer.”
“Relatively…” Yang Kai narrowed his eyes slightly, understanding the meaning behind his words.
