With just a single glance, Yang Kai understood that within a hundred meters of the Wind Monarch, time had become distorted, which was why this illusion was created. At this moment, what his eyes saw might not be real.
All of this should be the power of the Great Emperor’s remains, not the Wind Monarch's.
Without any hesitation, Yang Kai soared into the sky and rushed towards the Wind Monarch.
With a solemn look on his face, Demonic Qi surged from his body as he exuded a sense of righteousness, forming a seal with his hands as he shouted, “The withering of time is like a dream!”
A hundred meter away, Yang Kai’s palm slammed down!
Chaotic Space and Time were instantly smoothed out. Although Yang Kai’s attainments in the Time Laws weren’t deep, he could still be considered a beginner. This Time Flies Seal was a Divine Ability passed down by the Passing of Time Great Emperor, so it was naturally able to resist the power of the Great Emperor’s remains.
At the same time, Bai Zhuo, who was under the influence of the Time Laws, broke free from this shackles. As he roared, he raised his hand and sent a dark red river of blood towards Wind Monarch. Inside the river of blood, the vengeful spirits tumbled and howled miserably, their power immeasurable.
The Embodiment stretched out its hand and grabbed the air, grabbing the Demonic Artifact War Hammer in its hand and smashing it towards Wind Monarch.
Two Half-Saints and one High-Rank Demon King, each of them displaying their respective abilities and aiming straight for the Wind Monarch, their brilliant might shaking the hearts of everyone present.
Facing this unexpected turn of events, Wind Monarch’s face also changed greatly. As a Pseudo Emperor, his senses were sharp, so he naturally knew that whether it was the Embodiment or Bai Zhuo, neither of them were easy to provoke. In addition, there was also Bai Ya, who had just been sent flying by the backlash of the Great Array. Now that three Half-Saints had appeared, how could he possibly be a match for them?
In the blink of an eye, a light flashed across his mind as he glared at Yang Kai and shouted, “Yang Kai!”
As one of the four Great Monarch Envoys of the Demonic Heavenly Dao, his information network was naturally incomparable. When Yang Kai brought Yu Rumeng and the others back from the Demon Territory, he had met Can Ye before, so the Night Shadow Great Emperor would naturally spread this news. Wind Monarch had also obtained this information from Can Ye.
So he didn’t wonder why the Demon Race’s Half-Saint would attack him, because he knew that they were all enemies.
As expected of a Pseudo Emperor, he was able to remain calm in the face of adversity. With a single thought, a violent gust of wind burst forth as the Wind Blades transformed into layers of wind shields. Raising his hand, he summoned a shuttle-shaped artifact and shot it towards Bai Zhuo.
This artifact was only a foot long and looked very ordinary, but Bai Zhuo seemed to be facing a great enemy. His body suddenly came to a stop as the blood river flowed backwards to protect him.
With a loud bang, the shuttle-shaped artifact exploded, shattering the blood river and causing Bai Zhuo to stumble back a thousand feet, his face covered in dust.
The Wind Monarch raised his hand again and used his giant palm to meet the Demonic Artifact War Hammer of the Embodiment, forcing the Embodiment to retreat. However, the Wind Monarch suddenly transformed into a gust of wind and easily avoided this fierce blow.
In the blink of an eye, the Wind Monarch had forced back two Half-Saints.
Yang Kai’s Time Flies slammed into the Wind Monarch’s chest.
The Wind Monarch let out a muffled groan, his face contorting as he aged at a speed visible to the naked eye, but he quickly stopped and recovered. Although the power of the Time Flies was not small, it still depended on who the enemy was.
As a Pseudo Emperor, the Wind Monarch could even resist the Time Laws contained in the remains of the Great Emperor, so it was naturally not a problem for him to resist the passage of time.
However, he wasn’t completely unscathed. Yang Kai’s palm attack had more or less injured him.
The Embodiment and Bai Zhuo returned together with Bai Ya. Suppressing the surging blood in their heart, the three Half-Saints rushed forward, their killing intent surging as Yang Kai’s Time Flies appeared again!
Wind Monarch wore a helpless look on his face. He could block the combined attack of the two Half-Saints and Yang Kai, but he definitely couldn’t block it a second time. What’s more, this time there is Bai Ya.
It wasn’t that his strength wasn’t strong enough, it was simply that two fists were no match for four hands! He had many Emperor Realms under him, but after suffering the backlash of the Great Array, these Emperor Realms had either died or were injured. The only one who had survived was Grandmaster Sun, who was still an Array Master and wasn’t good at fighting. Gritting his teeth, he cursed Yang Kai and the others for their shamelessness, actually bullying him with their numbers and not showing the slightest bit of arrogance. However, his hands didn’t show the slightest hesitation, and with a look of determination, he bit his tongue and spat out a mouthful of blood essence onto the remains of the Great Emperor.
In a flash of light, a large golden character flew out from the Great Emperor’s bone. This character was quite strange and no one could recognize it.
The faces of Yang Kai and the others all changed. It didn’t matter if they didn’t recognize it, as long as they could feel a dangerous aura from it, it was enough. At this critical moment, Yang Kai’s eyes flashed and instead of retreating, he pushed forward. The Time Flies Seal slammed down once more as the Embodiment's Demonic Artifact War Hammer and Bai Zhuo and Bai Ya's Divine Abilities arrived.
The golden light flashed and everyone’s thoughts suddenly stopped.
When Yang Kai came back to his senses, he saw that the face of the Wind Monarch in front of him had clearly aged a bit. Originally, he was in his thirties, but now he was clearly in his forties.
The Time Flies Seal had already dissipated and the Embodiment, Bai Ya, and Bai Zhuo’s attack had also disappeared. It was as if a few breaths of time had passed and no one knew what had happened.
The ten year older Wind Monarch smiled mysteriously.
Thinking so, Yang Kai quickly examined himself to make sure there was nothing wrong with him, and only then did he relax. However, he still broke out in a cold sweat. Just now, the Wind Monarch had definitely done something, but no one had seen or noticed.
Turning to look at the three Half-Saints, Yang Kai immediately saw the problem.
Bai Zhuo froze on the spot like a statue, his chest emitting a faint golden light.
He had been hit!
Bai Ya was the first to notice this problem, his expression ugly as he shouted, “He’s not dead!”
He really hadn’t died. Bai Zhuo’s body was still full of vitality, so much so that he didn’t even show any signs of injury, but somehow he had somehow become a statue, unable to move.
The golden words that had flown out from the Great Emperor’s remains had also disappeared, so it was certain that Bai Zhuo’s actions were related to these golden words.
“Do you still want to fight?” The Wind Monarch smiled, a look of victory appearing on his face, “You will all die here, run for your lives, perhaps you can live a little longer!”
“Kill!” Yang Kai shouted in response. With a wave of his hands, the giant moonblade slashed towards the Wind Monarch while his Embodiment and Bai Ya also attacked from both sides.
The Wind Monarch spat out another mouthful of blood essence onto the Great Emperor’s remains.
Seeing this scene, Yang Kai’s eyes nearly popped out of their sockets. The power of the strange golden characters was obviously a Divine Ability hidden in the remains of the Great Emperor. He had thought that the Wind Monarch could only activate it once at most, and losing Bai Zhuo wouldn’t affect the situation much. He still had two Half-Saints on his side, but the Wind Monarch was actually able to activate it again.
What was the point of fighting!
Although he had lost his Blood Essence, a single golden character was enough to turn a Half-Saint into a statue. As long as he spat out a few more mouthfuls of blood, his side would be completely wiped out.
The Great Emperor’s remains once again blossomed with light as another golden character flew out.
Just like before, when the golden characters appeared, everyone’s thoughts froze.
By the time Yang Kai came back to his senses, he was still safe and sound, and his Embodiment was also fine. On the other hand, Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo had both turned into statues and were motionless, while the price Wind Monarch paid was that he had become a bit older. The originally gentle middle-aged man had now become a fifty or sixty-year-old old man.
Staring at the Great Emperor’s remains in the Wind Lord’s hand, Yang Kai declared, “If you can do it again, try it, I’ll rip your head off!”
Wind Monarch lightly coughed a few times before shaking his head and smiling bitterly, “Palace Master Yang’s eyes are like torches. With my ability, I can only use this method twice!”
It wasn’t that Yang Kai’s eyes were sharp, but after the two golden characters appeared, the Great Emperor’s remains in the Wind Monarch’s hand began to crack. Presumably, the method he had used just now had caused great damage to the Grand Emperor’s remains, making it impossible for him to endure a third time.
Yang Kai raised his chin slightly, his face filled with arrogance as he roared, “Speak, how do you want to die!”
He was furious! In this situation, he had the advantage, so it was not a problem for him to take down a Pseudo Emperor. However, the other party had taken the initiative to attack first, causing Bai Zhuo and Bai Ya to be sent out of the battlefield. Although the two Half-Saints were still alive and showed no signs of injury, who knew what kind of Divine Ability this golden character was? It would take a lot of effort to undo it.
As such, Yang Kai’s stomach was filled with anger, but the current situation was still his side’s advantage. Wind Moanrch had used the Great Emperor’s Divine Ability twice in a row, and he had paid a heavy price for it. On the other hand, Yang Kai and his Embodiment were almost completely unharmed, so if they really fought, Wind Monarch was definitely not his opponent.
Despite being at a huge disadvantage, the Wind Monarch still smiled, “Does Palace Master Yang think that victory is within your grasp? Although I can no longer use my previous technique, I am not a fish on a chopping block. If Palace Master Yang wants to make things difficult for me, please reconsider.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “If you cripple your own cultivation, I can spare your life!”
The Wind Monarch shook his head and laughed, “Palace Master Yang thinks too highly of himself.” As he spoke, he raised the Great Emperor’s skeleton in his hand, which was covered in cracks, “This skeleton also contains a Secret Technique, but unless it is absolutely necessary, this king does not want to use it, so this king wishes to discuss it with Palace Master Yang.”
“There’s no room for negotiation. Since our paths are different, there’s no room for negotiation. In today’s situation, either you die or I die!”
A helpless look appeared on the Wind Monarch’s face as he muttered to himself for a moment before raising his eyes to look at Yang Kai, “Does Palace Master Yang really have to do this?”
“Perhaps you can hand over the Great Emperor’s remains to this King.”
The Wind Monarch shook his head, “Of course not. Other than that, everything else is negotiable.”
“Then there’s nothing to say!” As Yang Kai finished speaking, his entire body suddenly became blurry, and in the next moment, he rushed in front of the Wind Monarch and pointed his finger towards him.
The power of this finger was condensed from Yang Kai’s cultivation. Although it was not some kind of Divine Ability or Secret Technique, even if it was a Pseudo Emperor, it was impossible for them to remain unscathed.
The Embodiment and Yang Kai were connected, and as soon as Yang Kai made his move, the Embodiment leapt behind the Wind Monarch and smashed its Demonic Artifact war hammer down.
This time, the Wind Monarch didn’t spit out any more Blood Essence, nor did any golden characters appear on the Great Emperor’s remains, but in this life or death crisis, he simply smiled at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with a great sense of alarm as his fingers moved faster, even the Embodiment is smashing down the Demonic Artifact War Hammer fiercely.
With a light cracking sound, an invisible force enveloped the Wind Monarch…
