In this life or death crisis, Murong Xiaoxiao’s actions were decisive, her sword hand as steady as a rock, her eyes clear, even Yang Kai who saw this scene couldn’t help cheering.
The Demonic Heavenly Dao's Emperor Realm master was ruthless and merciless, smashing his two hammers towards the two of them. If Murong Xiaoxiao could protect herself, she wouldn’t be able to protect her disciples. On the contrary, no matter what choice she made, one of them would be injured and die. If she died, the dozen or so Azure Sun Temple disciples around her would no longer have any chance to survive, so she attacked her enemies.
It was the simplest tactic, to fight desperately.
The Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm master could kill her, or even kill a disciple from Azure Sun Temple, but the price he would have to pay would definitely be heavy injuries. If he was unlucky, he might even die with her. This sword strike contained all of Murong Xiaoxiao’s cultivation.
Even Murong Xiaoxiao understood this principle, so how could the Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm master not? Seeing the cold light flashing on her long sword as she pointed it towards him, as if she wanted to take him down with her, he couldn’t help cursing in his heart that this lowly servant was courting death. He didn’t even try to dodge, instead transforming his dual hammers into a single hammer and smashing it towards the Azure Sun Temple disciple beside her.
The Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm master sneered. If you want to risk your life, I’ll do as you wish and fight you to the death…
Energy surged as the twin hammers smashed down from the sky like a millstone, blotting out the light in front of them as the aura of death rushed towards them, causing the Azure Sun Temple disciple’s face to pale…
Murong Xiaoxiao was also stunned. She had never imagined that this enemy would be so vicious, willing to take a blow from her to kill her companion.
After being stunned for a moment, her mind became sluggish and her clear eyes showed a trace of panic.
However, it only lasted for an instant before she quickly withdrew her long sword and brandished it in a flurry, pushing the disciple to the side and blocking the devastating attack.
At the most critical moment, the young girl still chose to protect her disciples, giving up on her own safety.
The Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm seemed to pierce through the thoughts in Murong Xiaoxiao’s heart, causing the sneer on his face to deepen as he mercilessly smashed his twin hammers down.
Shocked cries rang out as the dozen or so Azure Sun Temple disciples all wore looks of grief and indignation. Seeing that Murong Xiaoxiao was about to die, how could they not rush over to help? However, one reason was that their strength was insufficient, and the other reason was that their numbers were too small. If they couldn’t even protect themselves, how could they save others? All they could do was watch helplessly as their hearts burned with anxiety and hatred.
At this critical moment, the young girl’s expression became calm again without the slightest trace of panic.
Scenes flashed across her mind like a flash of lightning. She had been adopted by Azure Sun Temple since she was a child and had entered the temple to cultivate. There was always a cold-faced man who had improved with her, the love of her elders, the care of her Senior Brothers, and her Junior Brothers…
It was said that before death, one would see many things.
Was she going to die? Was that why she had thought of all this and seen all this?
Did she have any regrets? She probably didn’t. If she didn’t have the Divine Temple, she wouldn’t even know when she would have starved to death or frozen to death. How could she have such a healthy body? If she didn’t have the Divine Temple, even if she survived, she would only be an ordinary person, how could she have such an impressive cultivation?
For the sake of the Divine Temple, she could die without regrets.
The only small bit of guilt she felt was that she hadn’t been able to bring her dozen or so fellow disciples with her to kill their way into the Heavens. As an Emperor Realm Elder of the Azure Sun Temple, she should bear such a responsibility.
However… it didn’t matter anymore. On the road to the Underworld, everyone could accompany each other as they chatted and laughed. If they were to encounter another Evil Spirit in the Underworld, they could simply fight side by side.
Sword flowers is destroyed, sword flowers is shattered…
The defences that had been hastily set up could not withstand the fierce attacks of the enemy. As the twin hammers descended, Murong Xiaoxiao saw a familiar figure!
Not from Azure Sun Temple but was a family member of the Azure Sun Temple.
Yang Kai was smiling at her, while Murong Xiaoxiao was smiling sweetly at him, thinking that it was just her illusion before she died. However, in the next moment, a majestic figure appeared in front of her, and the force and wind generated by the dual hammers suddenly disappeared, completely blocked by this figure. The violent storm also transformed into a calm sky, and Murong Xiaoxiao felt as if she had returned to a boat in a harbor, no longer having to worry about the turbulent sea.
With a loud bang, the two big hammers flew high into the sky, and the Demonic Heavenly Dao Emperor Realm masters who were rushing towards them were sent flying backwards like rag sacks, his Demonic Qi roiling as blood splashed into the sky.
The sudden change happened too quickly. Before Murong Xiaoxiao could react, the Demonic Heavenly Dao's people had also failed to react.
It wasn’t until the Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm fell to the ground that everyone came to their senses. The two groups of people had different reactions.
The dozen or so Azure Sun Temple disciples were all pleasantly surprised, how could they not know that a strong reinforcement had arrived? The situation of certain death had taken a turn for the better, and all of them became excited. On the other hand, the faces of Demonic Heavenly Dao's people changed drastically, all of them staring at Yang Kai in horror, their bodies shivering.
Although they didn’t know how strong Yang Kai was, their own Emperor Realm master had been sent flying, even his Emperor Artifact had been knocked out of his hand. This showed just how powerful this person was.
As a result, the group of people from Demonic Heavenly Dao retreated, instantly putting some distance between them and the group from Azure Sun Temple. They huddled together and stared at Yang Kai cautiously and fearfully.
Yang Kai didn’t even look at them, simply staring coldly at the fallen Emperor Realm.
After being sent flying, the other party had already suffered heavy injuries and the blood in his body was rolling. For a time, he was unable to get up, and after several attempts, he managed to stagger to his feet. However, there was a large dent in his chest.
Covering his chest with his hands, the Demonic Heavenly Dao Emperor Realm master’s mouth was filled with bitterness as he swallowed a mouthful of flies. Blood constantly dripped from the corner of his mouth as he glared at Yang Kai and shouted, “Who is it?!”
Being beaten up like this for no apparent reason, he couldn’t help feeling depressed. Most importantly, he couldn’t even see what his enemy looked like.
At this moment, he was able to clearly see a handsome young man who looked somewhat familiar, but he couldn’t remember who he was.
Yang Kai wanted to say, 'You don’t have the qualifications to know this King's name,' but who would have thought that behind him, Murong Xiaoxiao would suddenly shout, “Yang Kai? Senior Brother Yang?” Her voice was filled with disbelief.
It was indeed a bit inconceivable. After all, several years ago, Yang Kai had suffered a Qi Deviation in Tiger Roar City, fallen into the Demon Path, and escaped from the Star Boundary to the Demon Territory. For the past few years, there had been no news of him.
When she saw Yang Kai just now, she only thought it was her illusion before she died, how could she dare believe that Yang Kai would really appear? She also couldn’t believe that Yang Kai had saved her life at the most critical moment.
Having his identity exposed by Murong Xiaoxiao, Yang Kai turned around and smiled at her, “Junior Sister, rest for now. I’ll talk to you later.”
Although Murong Xiaoxiao wasn’t seriously injured, she had still suffered some injuries. Just now, she had been struck by the power of the twin hammers, causing her aura to become unstable. At this moment, she felt relieved, and when she saw Yang Kai again, her face became slightly flushed and excited. The main reason was because of her hidden injuries.
The young girl nodded and closed her eyes.
With Yang Kai here, no one could hurt them anymore, so there was no need to worry.
“Yang Kai? You’re Yang Kai?” The Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm master hesitated for a moment before asking in shock.
Yang Kai’s name was now known to everyone in the entire Star Boudnary. Although he was not as famous as the Great Emperors, he was definitely not a small character. For him to be able to escape from the hands of the Iron Blood Great Emperor with his cultivation at the Emperor Realm was a legend.
No wonder he looked familiar, it was this person!
The Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm master had once seen Yang Kai’s portrait, so he had some impression of him.
I don’t understand! Why would he appear here? Just like what Murong Xiaoxiao thought, he had clearly escaped into the Demon Territory, so why would he appear here?
However, since Yang Kai had attacked him, he was an enemy, not a friend, so after learning of Yang Kai’s identity, he immediately bit his tongue and spat out a mouthful of blood essence. At the same time, a bloody mist burst out from his body and he transformed into a streak of light as he fled.
Escape was more important!
Yang Kai just stared at him like how he was mocking Murong Xiaoxiao.
Ten kilometers, twenty kilometers, thirty kilometers, fifty kilometers…
In the blink of an eye, this Demonic Heaven Dao’s Emperor Realm master had already fled fifty kilometers, fleeing like a madman.
But at this moment, a binding force appeared out of thin air and the fleeing figure suddenly came to a stop. Immediately after, his vision blurred and this Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor realm master returned to his original position. However, at this moment, a large hand was gripping his neck like a little chicken.
Looking at this young man’s face, the Demonic Heavenly Dao’s Emperor Realm master’s face became ashen…
Shocked cries rang out as the Demonic Heavenly Dao's group scattered like birds and beasts. Just now, they had only seen Yang Kai stretch out his hand, but when he pulled it back, the strongest person on their side had been caught. How could they not know the gap between their strengths was too great?
Staying here would definitely lead to death, and if they were to escape, they might have a chance to survive, so their choice was obvious.
When the dozen or so Azure Sun Temple disciples saw this, they wanted to stop them, but how could they? All of them were injured and had few people, so they could only watch helplessly.
Yang Kai waved his hand and a beautiful woman with an enchanting figure suddenly appeared out of thin air.
Everyone was stunned, not knowing where this woman had come from. The woman herself was also stunned, obviously not understanding what had happened.
But in the next moment, Yang Kai’s voice rang out, “Kill them all.”
The woman blinked and glanced at the fleeing figures of the Demonic Heavenly Dao disciples before smiling, “I can finally move around, it’s almost moldy.”
As she spoke, she stretched out her hand and grasped the air, causing a powerful bow to suddenly appear in her hand. The shape of this bow was smooth and graceful, like a soaring divine bird, exuding a powerful energy fluctuation. It was obviously an extraordinary treasure.
The Azure Sun Temple disciples were all surprised by this woman’s identity and background, but when they suddenly saw this treasure, they all frowned.
Because this artifact was wrapped in black Qi and had a thick Demonic Qi, it was actually a Demon Artifact.
