Although this disguise was a bit suspicious, as long as he handled it appropriately, there shouldn’t be any major problems. After observing for the past few days, Yang Kai discovered that many people in the Demonic Heavenly Dao were wearing disguises, and there were also some who were covering their faces like him. Although these people had been ordered to gather here, they didn’t want to reveal their origins or identities, so his current appearance shouldn’t be too abrupt.
After making their preparations, the two of them immediately set off towards the mountain valley where the Four Seasons Land was located.
After flying for a while, Yang Kai smiled lightly and said, “Brother Zhou, we’re only here to infiltrate the Demonic Heavenly Dao, not to kill anyone immediately. It’s best to withdraw your killing intent.”
Zhou Quan took a few deep breaths to calm himself down, and only after his killing intent had completely dissipated did he speak, “Thinking of my Sect’s disciples, this Zhou couldn’t help himself. Palace Master Yang, please forgive me.”
Yang Kai replied, “I understand, but there will always be a chance.”
Continuing forward, Zhou Quan received a reminder and did not reveal any more flaws. After entering the Four Seasons Land's Mountain Valley, a Divine Sense immediately came from nearby.
Yang Kai could clearly feel that the source of this Divine Sense should be the location of the Array Master. Before the giant fish behind him showed itself, everything here had been managed by the Array Master.
Zhou Quan turned his head in that direction and heard Yang Kai’s voice. Without hesitation, he led Yang Kai in that direction.
Not long after, the two of them arrived in front of a cave. In front of the cave, a pale-faced man with a beardless face stood tall and straight, blocking the cave entrance. His entire body was like an unsheathed sword, his Sword Intent soaring into the sky, giving off an extremely dangerous feeling. This man’s cultivation was also extraordinary, shockingly, he was a Third-Order Emperor Realm master. He was the one who had been following the Array Master all this time to protect him.
During the days Yang Kai had been secretly observing him, this person had been inseparable from the Array Master.
Seeing Zhou Quan and Yang Kai arrive, the pale-faced man simply stared at them coldly.
When he got close, Zhou Quan didn’t say a word and directly took out a black token and tossed it towards the man. The man took it and examined it for a moment before returning it. However, he still didn’t show any intention of giving way and instead made an inviting gesture.
Zhou Quan tilted his head towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai gathered his Demonic Qi and summoned his Demonic Qi to cover his body.
He didn’t reveal his High-Rank Demon King cultivation and only showed the aura of a Low-Rank Demon King, so he wasn’t afraid of others seeing through him. Unless his Soul Cultivation was stronger than his, no one could see through him.
The pale-faced man was a Third-Order Emperor Realm master, so he naturally couldn’t see through him.
Seeing Yang Kai reveal his Demonic Qi, the vigilance on his face eased a lot. All of the people from Demonic Heavenly Dao had Demonic Qi on their bodies, so even if they didn’t know each other, as long as they showed signs of Demonic Qi, everyone would understand that they were on the same side. The token Zhou Quan had taken out earlier was just an additional layer of identification.
When Yang Kai revealed his Demonic Qi, Zhou Quan said, “I was ambushed on my way here and suffered some injuries, so I’m temporarily unable to perform any techniques. Please forgive me.”
The Demon Blood in his body had already been extracted by Bai Zhuo, so no matter what, it was impossible for him to reveal any traces of Demonic Qi. However, at this moment, he really did look like he had yet to fully recover from his injuries, so there was nothing wrong with his explanation.
In any case, Yang Kai had already revealed his ‘identity’. Presumably, in this Star Boundary, there were no ordinary people who were willing to associate themselves with people from the Demon Heavenly Dao.
Sure enough, the pale-faced man didn’t suspect anything and simply frowned, “Did you meet someone? Did you leave any flaws?”
Zhou Quan nodded, “Don’t worry, they’ve all been killed, but most of the people I brought with me have died, leaving only me and Junior Brother.”
The pale-faced man nodded lightly, “It’s fine, the two of you are enough. Come in first, we’ll talk about other things after meeting Grandmaster Sun.”
Saying so, he turned around and led Zhou Quan and Yang Kai inside.
The cave was narrow on the outside and wide on the inside. There were several dozen people gathered inside, all of whom had recently set up an Array with the Array Master. The Array Master was the “Grandmaster Sun” the pale-faced man had mentioned.
At this moment, Grandmaster Sun was meditating, and the pale-faced man brought Yang Kai and Zhou Quan to him. After exchanging a few words with him, Grandmaster Sun nodded slightly and said, “This Grandmaster has called you here to assist this King in setting up the Spirit Array. Now that the Spirit Array is almost complete, the two of you should stay here and recuperate for the time being. Three days from now, I will need your help.”
“Yes, I will obey Grandmaster Sun’s orders,” Zhou Quan replied before leading Yang Kai away.
Just as he was about to turn around, Grandmaster Sun suddenly turned to Yang Kai and asked, “Is your Junior Brother hiding his face because he can’t be seen?”
Zhou Quan cupped his hands and said, “Junior Brother encountered a big fire when he was young and ruined his appearance, so it’s not convenient for him to show himself.” He didn’t pause in his reply, obviously having considered this question.
Grandmaster Sun glanced over at Yang Kai again, but he was too lazy to ask such a question. In his opinion, as long as Yang Kai and the others could pass the pale-faced man’s test, it would be fine.
On the other hand, the pale-faced man’s Divine Sense surged, as if he wanted to investigate whether Zhou Quan’s words were true or false, but how could he see that after sweeping his Divine Sense across Yang Kai’s face, Yang Kai’s face became a bit blurry and he couldn’t help frowning, thinking that Yang Kai was wearing some kind of artifact. Since Grandmaster Sun didn’t pursue this matter any further, he didn’t want to complicate matters.
Although there were many twists and turns, Yang Kai had finally passed through the barrier. It seemed simple, but if Yang Kai couldn’t use his Demonic Qi, it would be impossible for him to come here. The people of Demonic Heavenly Dao probably wouldn’t have thought that there would be such a divergent in this world.
However, this kind of method could only be used for now. In the future, when the news of Yang Kai returning from the Demon Territory to the Star Boundary was completely exposed, the people of Demonic Heavenly Dao would definitely become vigilant. At that time, it wouldn’t be possible to use this method again.
The two of them went to a corner of the cave and found an empty corner to sit down cross-legged. Zhou Quan’s injuries had not yet healed, so he really needed to recuperate. Yang Kai secretly observed the cultivation and strength of the people inside the cave.
In truth, he had already investigated this matter, but it was better to be safe than sorry.
Just now, when Grandmaster Sun said that they would be useful in three days time, Yang Kai secretly guessed that the Great Array should be completed in three days time. At that time, when the array was activated, he didn’t know what kind of help they would need.
Nanmen Dajun had said that this Spirit Array was a Summoning Array, so it was possible that it could summon some kind of unparalleled monster, but what kind of unparalleled monster was there in the Four Seasons Land? Moreover, since it was a Summoning Array, it had to pay a certain price. The Spirit Array was just a foundation, so what kind of price would it have to pay?
Could it be that he wanted these people from Demonic Heavenly Dao to sacrifice themselves? If that was the case, he didn’t know if these people from Demonic Heavenly Dao would be willing or not.
But no matter what, the truth should be revealed in three days, so Yang Kai could only wait quietly.
For the next few days, during the day, the people from Demonic Heaven Dao remained in hiding, and when night fell, they would set up a Spirit Array. However, Grandmaster Sun had no intention of summoning Yang Kai and Zhou Quan. Firstly, the two of them had stated that they were injured, and secondly, the Spirit Array was about to be completely set up, so it didn’t matter if they wanted it or not. As long as they were able to activate it, it would be fine.
So the two of them stayed in the cave for a few days.
On the night of the third day, when the moon was high in the sky, Grandmaster Sun suddenly stood up. Yang Kai, who had been secretly paying attention to him, noticed that his expression had clearly become much more excited. Taking a deep breath, Grandmaster Sun called out, “Everyone, follow me.”
Saying so, he took the lead and walked out.
The dozen or so people didn’t hesitate and chased after him.
After exiting the cave, Yang Kai found that the people from the Demonic Heavenly Dao who had been hiding in the valley for the past few days had all come out at this moment, each of them leading a group of people towards this place.
Soon, several hundred people gathered together.
Grandmaster Sun swept his eyes over them and smiled, “All Emperor Realms, step forward!”
Saying so, more than twenty people stepped forward, including Yang Kai and Zhou Quan.
Seeing this, Grandmaster Sun nodded and raised his hand, shooting out more than twenty jade slips, each of which corresponded to an Emperor Realm master. At the same time, he said, “This jade slip contains a great Array Technique and Positions, remember them well.”
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and took the jade slip. After probing it with his Divine Sense, he found that it was indeed as Grandmaster Sun had said. The jade slip recorded the method to activate the Great Array, as well as the position he needed to stand in.
The method should be the same, but each person in the Array was different. This nameless Array required more than twenty Emperor Realm working together to activate it.
No matter what use it had, its scale was extraordinary. No wonder it had taken so long to set up.
Yang Kai raised his head and glanced at Zhou Quan before sending him a silent message with his Divine Sense.
Zhou Quan nodded slightly.
The method in the jade slip was not difficult to understand, and anyone who could cultivate to the Emperor Realm was not an idiot, so they naturally quickly memorized it.
Grandmaster Sun also flew over to a certain spot at this moment and loudly declared, “The great event has been accomplished today. After this matter is accomplished, there will be no lack of rewards. Everyone, enter the array!”
As soon as he finished speaking, the twenty or so Emperor Realm flew up and landed in their respective positions.
Yang Kai and Zhou Quan were separated by a few kilometers, so if anything were to happen, Yang Kai wouldn’t be able to take care of Zhou Quan. However, he had secretly informed Zhou Quan just now, so that he was able to escape safely.
The Great Array was about to be activated, and all the Emperor Realm had entered, but Yang Kai was puzzled.
According to what Nanmen Dajun had said before, this Great Array was still missing a key point. He hadn’t seen any special movements from Grandmaster Sun these past few days. Could it be that this so-called key point had unknowingly been fixed?
At this time, it was not convenient for him to contact Nanmen Dajun again, so he could only take things one step at a time.
Moreover, the big fish he had guessed hadn’t shown up, so he didn’t know if his guess was wrong or if the time wasn’t right.
If it was the former, it would be easy to handle. Although there were many people in front of him, they were not enough to kill him. If it was the latter, he would have to wait and see.
Since things had already reached this point, Yang Kai wasn’t in a hurry. He wanted to see just what kind of mischief this great array was trying to pull.
