“The arrow is already on the bowstring, I have no choice but to release it,” Yang Kai’s voice was filled with determination and decisiveness, “However, since ancient times, those who achieve great things cannot do so without the help of others, so I must ask the two of you to lend me a hand!”
Bei Limo immediately said coldly, “I disagree!”
“That’s not up to you,” Yang Kai coldly snorted. He still needed to persuade Chang Tian, but he had already decided how to act on Bei Limo’s side. The Heavenly Martial Continent was just the beginning, so even if Bei Limo didn’t agree, it would be useless. He could simply swallow Bei Limo’s territories one by one, and when that time came, Bei Limo would have no one to rely on.
On this matter, she had no choice.
Seeing Yang Kai act so domineeringly, Bei Limo’s expression became even uglier. Chang Tian smiled at her and said, “Madam, there’s no need to be so indignant. Little Boy Yang was right before, the Demon Territory won’t be able to maintain itself for long. If we can use a collapsed Demon Territory to exchange for an intact Demon Territory, this deal won’t be a loss to anyone.”
Bei Limo turned to look at him and sneered, “Aren’t you afraid he’ll burn the bridge after crossing it?”
Chang Tian smiled lightly, “This King’s lifespan is limited, I only wish to find a way out for the Hundred Spirit Continent in my lifetime, I don’t ask for too much.”
Bei Limo was stunned for a moment before smiling again, “Good, as long as you let him swallow your Hundred Spirit Continent first, this Senior will agree to it, how is it?” Unlike other Demon Saints, although Chang Tian was also a Demon Saint, his territory only had one Hundred Spirit Continent, if only the Heavenly Martial Continent on her side is devoured, it wouldn’t be a big deal. However, if the Hundred Spirit Continent was swallowed up, then Chang Tian would have no way to escape. Moreover, Yang Kai had already made his point, so she couldn’t refuse him, but if she could drag Chang Tian into the muddy water ahead of time, her worries would be greatly reduced, and she wouldn’t be the only one to suffer.
Chang Tian smiled bitterly and shook his head, “Madam’s plan is really good.”
Bei Limo coldly snorted, “Don’t tell me you don’t even understand this?”
Chang Tian nodded lightly, “Madam’s words are reasonable, let’s begin with this King's Hundred Spirit Continent.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was overjoyed, “Does Senior agree?”
“If you can promise me a few conditions…”
“Senior, please speak,” Yang Kai said solemnly.
“Treat all living beings of my Hundred Spirit Continent well, and do not allow them to die for no reason.”
Yang Kai smiled, “Of course there’s no problem. Even if Senior doesn’t say anything, I won’t act like this.”
“Second, I want ten times the territory of my Hundred Spirit Continent!” Chang Tian continued.
“That won’t be a problem,” Yang Kai agreed without even thinking about it. The Hundred Spirit Continent was only a single continent, ten times its size was equivalent to ten continents, and Bei Limo had dozens of them under her command. When the time came, he would be able to distribute a little bit of their land to satisfy this condition. What’s more, the newly expanded territory of the Mysterious Small World was a fusion of dozens of continents, so it was unknown how many times larger it was compared to the Hundred Spirit Continent. To Yang Kai, this condition was simply not a condition, he could easily fulfill it.
“Third…” Chang Tian paused for a moment before smiling, “This third condition isn’t really a condition, it’s just that your scheme is too big. If you only rely on this King and Madam Bei, I’m afraid you won’t be able to accomplish it. You’ll need other helpers to succeed!”
Yang Kai said, “There shouldn’t be any problems with Rumeng.”
Chang Tian obviously also thought of this point and nodded slightly, “If you add Yu Rumeng as well… fine, this king agrees.”
“Many thanks, Senior.” Yang Kai was overjoyed, and the stone in his heart was finally lifted. He secretly planned to quickly go to the Hundred Spirit Continent and devour it. At that time, there would be no turning back.
“I also have conditions!” Bei Limo shouted.
Yang Kai was in a good mood and couldn’t be bothered to argue with her, “What conditions do you have?”
Bei Limo grit her teeth and said, “You should know what my condition is!”
Yang Kai was silent for a moment before replying, “Good, after this matter is done, i will do as you wish!” Although Bei Limo did not say it explicitly, to her, the most important thing right now was to regain her freedom and remove the Soul brand Yang Kai had planted in her Knowledge Sea.
Bei Limo’s eyelashes trembled and she no longer spoke.
After everything was settled, a crack suddenly appeared in front of the two, and Yang Kai’s voice rang out, “Please move!”
Chang Tian and Bei Limo glanced at each other before both of them rushed into the crack and disappeared in the blink of an eye, leaving Huo Lun standing at the peak of the mountain, cold as ice.
Only after the crack in front of him disappeared did Huo Lun fall to the ground, gasping for breath. The reason he was so frightened was not because he had seen two Demon Saints, but because the two of them were discussing something with the voice floating from the sky…
When he heard something he shouldn’t have heard, the only outcome was to be killed and silenced! In that short period of time just now, he felt like he had been walking back and forth between the gates of hell countless times. Fortunately, the final result was not bad. Those few big shots seemed to have no interest in him, allowing him to preserve his life.
Outside the Mysterious Small World, Chang Tian and Bei Limo both appeared and simultaneously turned their eyes to the bead in Yang Kai’s hand. The two of them knew that this should be the Mysterious Boundary Bead that had formed its own world.
Bai Ya cupped his fists and said, “Greetings, Saint Venerable. Greetings, Great Senior Chang Tian!”
Bei Limo nodded slightly, while Chang Tian smiled towards Yang Kai and said, “Don’t forget what you promised me. I’ll be waiting for you and Saint Venerable Rumeng in the Hundred Spirit Continent!”
Yang Kai cupped his fists, “Senior, please take care.”
Chang Tian nodded before his figure flickered and disappeared.
After he left, Bei Limo glared at Yang Kai and sneered, “Are you satisfied now?”
Yang Kai laughed and said, “Saint Venerable doesn’t need to be so bitter. If this matter succeeds, it will be beneficial to both of us.”
Bei Limo still wanted to say something, but Yang Kai didn’t give her the chance. After bidding farewell, he also left through the World Gate.
Looking in the direction Yang Kai had left, Bai Ya whispered, “Saint Venerable, the Heavenly Martial Continent has been destroyed, are we just going to let this matter go?”
“Then what else do you want?” Bei Limo looked at him and ask.
Bai Ya said, “Do you want this subordinate to gather some people…” As he spoke, he stretched out his hand and made a throat-slitting gesture.
“What are you trying to do!?” Bei Limo was so angry since she couldn’t vent her anger on Yang Kai, instead venting all her anger on Bai Ya, “Can you beat him? Don’t make a fool of yourself. Inform all the Half-Saints who are still in the territory to go to Proud Snow Ice Palace, this Queen has something to tell them!”
Saying so, she no longer paid any attention to Bai Ya, turned around, and walked towards the World Gate.
Seeing this, Bai Ya helplessly rubbed his nose, not daring to stay here any longer and quickly left as well. The Heavenly Martial Continent had been swallowed up, and the space where this continent had once been was now empty. With the turbulence of the void, even the World Gate had become unstable, and it wouldn’t be long before it disappeared. If he waited until the World Gate collapsed, he wouldn’t be able to leave.
Phantom Continent, the Holy City, as the center of Yu Rumeng’s territory, the Holy City didn’t seem to be affected by the war between the two worlds. It was still lively and bustling with people, with Demon Chief Commander and Demon Kings appearing everywhere in the Holy City.
Two hundred kilometers outside Holy City was Yu Rumeng’s palace.
At this moment, in a secret room beneath the palace, Yu Rumeng was sitting cross-legged, one hand forming a series of hand seals while the other was holding a purple fruit under her nose. As she breathed in and out, the purple fruit’s purple aura was absorbed into her body.
Almost all of the Demon Saints had been injured in the Eternal Heaven Continent battle, and Yu Rumeng was no exception. A wisp of her Soul Clone had been severed and her Divine Soul had been damaged. Such an injury was not something that could be healed in a day or two.
For the past year or so, she had been constantly healing her injuries. Presumably, it was the same for the other Demon Saints whose Soul Clone is destroyed. Now, the damage to her Divine Soul was almost completely healed.
All of a sudden, Yu Rumeng seemed to sense something and opened her eyes. Her beautiful eyes were as bright as the stars, with stars, sun, and moon flowing in them. Her eyes were as bright as the stars in the night sky. Biting her red lips lightly, Yu Rumeng let out a cold snort and closed her eyes to continue breathing in the purple fruit.
But this time, no matter how she tried, she couldn’t calm her heart. The purple aura that had drifted to the bottom of her nose was like a lost sheep, no longer pouring into her body but instead disappearing after circling around for a while.
Inside the palace, Yang Kai was rushing in all the way as he called out to Yu Rumeng.
A group of guards who were trying to stop him were knocked around.
A charming maidservant followed closely behind him, blocking his path as she anxiously said, “Great King, this is the Saint Venerable's palace, don’t make too much noise. If the Saint Venerable finds out, she’ll get angry.”
As Yang Kai walked forward, he glared at her and said, “Get out of my way, don’t block my way.” As he spoke, he reached out and pushed the maidservant to the side, nearly knocking her to the ground.
After walking around for a long time, he still couldn’t find any trace of Yu Rumeng, but this disturbance had alarmed many of the palace guards, all of whom were staring at him blankly.
Yang Kai stood in place and scratched his head before turning to the maid who had just spoken, “Where is the Saint Venerable? Why has she disappeared?”
The maid shook her head, “This servant doesn’t know.”
Yang Kai then asked the guards, “Do you know where the Saint Venerable is now?”
Not only did the guards ignore him, they even stared at him with solemn expressions as if they were facing a great enemy.
Yang Kai grinned and simply closed his eyes, silently sensing.
Although the Heart Seal Secret Technique had been transferred to the Soul Warming Lotus by Yang Kai, this Secret Technique had not lost its effect. If Yang Kai used this Secret Technique to perceive Yu Rumeng’s position, he would be able to determine where she was. Of course, the prerequisite was that they were not too far apart, otherwise it would be useless.
A moment later, Yang Kai’s expression changed and he turned his head to look in a certain direction. With a chuckle, his Space Laws fluctuated and he disappeared.
