Since he knew, how could he allow Yang Kai to do as he pleased?
With his arms restrained, Wind Monarch was unable to move, and while he was shocked by Yang Kai’s brute strength, he didn’t panic and simply shouted, “Wind!”
As soon as he finished speaking, he really transformed into a gust of wind and disappeared without a trace. Yang Kai’s hand was empty and the Wind Monarch had already escaped. The Mountain River Bell that was falling from above stopped in mid-air. Now that the Wind Monarch had escaped its shackles, there was no need for the Mountain River Bell to fall.
This gentle breeze was visible to the naked eye and was extremely mysterious. It floated to the side and transformed back into the Wind Monarch, calmly smiling, “Do you know how long this King has been waiting here for you?” Finished speaking, without waiting for Yang Kai’s reply, the Wind Monarch answered, “A hundred years, an entire hundred years!” A look of joy appeared on his face, “This place is truly mysterious and unparalleled, the Passing of Time Great Emperor truly lives up to his name. Now that this King’s injuries have healed, Junior, I’m afraid you’re not his opponent.”
Although he had entered the Four Seasons Land before Yang Kai, he had the remains of the Great Emperor in his possession, so he had directly entered the Passing of Time Temple to heal his injuries and meditate for a hundred years to restore his strength before coming to Yang Kai.
Although Yang Kai was unclear, how could he not know what he meant?
The Passing of Time Temple was able to distort space and time, so it is possible the for the Wind Monarch to recover from his injury in a hundred years. However, Yang Kai had never experienced this kind of time flow before.
On the other hand, what Yang Kai had experienced, this Wind Monarch in front of him probably didn’t know, otherwise he wouldn’t have said such words.
Wind Monarch's cultivation was higher than Yang Kai’s, so he was confident of victory, he wasn’t in a hurry to act. Instead, he stared at Yang Kai and said, “I’ve long heard that you are related to the Dragon Island’s Dragon Race and possess the Dragon Race’s Origin Energy. Now it seems that this is true, but an external force is still an external force, so how can it compare to your own profound strength? What about your helper? Aren’t you going to summon him?”
When Yang Kai summoned the three Demon Race Half-Saints, Bai Zhuo and Bai Ya had been sealed by him using the Divine Ability from the remains of the Great Emperor, leaving behind only his Embodiment.
Wind Monarch was still quite concerned about his Embodiment. If Yang Kai brought his Embodiment here, there would definitely be a great battle today.
“When I need it, I will summon it,” Yang Kai smiled lightly, “No need to worry.”
The Wind Monarch nodded, “Junior, although you’re young, your strength is indeed extraordinary. To be honest, this King really can’t bear to kill you.”
Yang Kai raised his brow and said, “Then why don’t you just stick your neck out and save everyone some trouble?”
The Wind Monarch naturally wouldn’t pay any attention to these words and earnestly said, “This king thinks so, this king can’t bear to kill you, but you want to become this king’s enemy, it’s truly a headache. Why don’t you join the Demonic Heavenly Dao as well? If everyone can become a family, then we won’t have to worry about this anymore. This way, you can preserve your life, this king won’t have any regrets, everyone will be happy, won’t that be wonderful? Moreover, I’m sure the Dao Master will be happy to accept a young talent like you!”
Yang Kai looked at him with a strange expression, “You want me to join the Demonic Path?”
“Sincerely!” The Wind Monarch’s expression became solemn, “With your ability, if you can join us, you will definitely be placed in an important position by the Dao Master. Although you cannot be ranked amongst the four Great Monarch, you will definitely be the highest ranked below the four of us. When the day comes when the Demon Race unites the Star Boundary, you will be free and unfettered.”
“Haha…” Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing.
The Wind Monarch, however, wore a solemn expression, “Why are you laughing?”
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “I’m laughing at the fact that you’re willing to be someone else’s dog with a face full of glory. I’m laughing at the fact that after cultivating for so many years, you still can’t find your true self. If you want to use your status as one of the Four Great Monarch to win me over, do you know who I am?”
“Who are you?” Wind Monarch looked at him indifferently.
Yang Kai straightened his back and smiled proudly, “This king belong to the 55th Army of the Star Boundary, the commander of my own Ji Zi army. How could I care about your Demonic Heavenly Dao dog position?”
Saying so, Yang Kai raised his hand and summoned a large token!
As soon as the Token was issued, the Wind Monarch’s expression changed dramatically as he raised his hand and summoned a small hourglass. At the same time, the big Token flashed and a burly figure shot out from it.
The Command Token of the Army Commander was not only a symbol of one’s status as a Commander, but it was also a powerful artifact used to protect one’s life and kill enemies. It was sealed with a Great Emperor’s Divine Ability. The token in Yang Kai’s hand was refined by Zhan Wuhen and was naturally sealed with his Divine Ability.
Facing a single Pseudo Emperor, Yang Kai’s sneak attack had failed, so he had immediately summoned his Army Commander’s Token and activated the Great Emperor’s Divine Ability within it.
Pseudo Emperors weren’t easy to kill, and the Wind Monarch had been here for a hundred years, so Yang Kai didn’t know what kind of benefits he had obtained. Not only had he recovered from his injuries, but he was also full of confidence. Yang Kai might not be able to gain any advantage in a fight with him with his own strength, so he didn’t hesitate to display his might.
Zhan Wuhen’s figure became solid, as if he was the one who had just walked out from the Token. The aura of the Great Emperor rushed towards the Wind Monarch, causing him to be unable to breathe. Under the guidance of Yang Kai’s aura, Zhan Wuhen figure arrived in front of the Wind Monarch in a few steps and punched out.
It was a simple punch without any fancy tricks, like a fight between ordinary people.
However, the Wind Monarch’s face was filled with shock as he suddenly flipped the hourglass in his hand, causing a thin layer of sand to flow down from it. A halo of light spread out from the hourglass, enveloping Zhan Wuhen’s figure and causing him to freeze in place.
Yang Kai’s eyes widened. This situation was exactly the same as what Bai Zhuo and Bai Ya had experienced before.
After succeeding in his first move, the Wind Monarch couldn’t help laughing, “Only so-so!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a cracking sound rang out as Zhan Wuhen’s fist, which had been frozen in place, began to move forward inch by inch, shattering the great shackles. Before his fist even arrived, the void had already begun to tremble as cracks began to appear.
The Wind Monarch let out a strange cry and quickly retreated, no longer remaining calm and composed. However, he retreated quickly while Zhan Wuhen’s attacks followed closely behind. Seeing that he was about to hit the Wind Monarch, the Wind Monarch urged his Emperor Qi and turned the hourglass in his hand.
Similar to the previous scene, a visible halo of light flashed as Zhan Wuhen’s figure froze.
This time, Wind Monarch no longer had the mood to ridicule him, instead continuing to retreat, his expression extremely solemn.
Sure enough, in just a moment, Zhan Wuhen moved again, shattering the Void. Although he was several hundred meters away from Wind Monarch, when he moved, Wind Monarch was shocked to discover that the fist was approaching his face again.
Third turn of the hourglass!
Zhan Wuhen once again stood still.
After three moves, Zhan Wuhen’s figure suddenly became faint, and in less than three breaths of time, his entire body disappeared into the void. Obviously, the power of his Divine Ability had disappeared, so this Great Emperor Divine Ability was unable to harm the Wind Monarch in the slightest!
Although it didn’t injure him, it still caused a lot of damage to the Wind Monarch. Yang Kai could clearly see that every time the hourglass was turned, the Wind Monarch's complexion would become a bit uglier and his aura would drop significantly.
Activating this artifact had cost him quite a bit.
But… what the hell was that hourglass? Yang Kai couldn’t understand how such a terrifying artifact could exist in this world! He couldn’t help thinking about what his third self had said before. Be careful of that hourglass, its power is unfathomable.
The power of this artifact was truly unfathomable. Although the Commander’s Token only contained a single Great Emperor Divine Ability, which was not comparable to a Great Emperor’s own, it was still not something an ordinary Pseudo Emperor could resist. Even so, it was unable to do anything to the Wind Monarch, which showed just how powerful this artifact was.
Inside the hall, cracks filled the air. It wasn’t just the Void Cracks, but also the chaos of space and time. This situation was very similar to what Yang Kai had encountered when he first entered the Passing of Time Temple!
“Hahahaha!” Wind Monarch laughed wildly, unable to express his joy. Having escaped from the hands of a Great Emperor's divine ability, even if he was in a sorry state, it was still something he could be proud of, so he was happy. Laughing loudly, he raised the hourglass in his hand, “Junior, do you know what this is?”
Yang Kai’s face sank, “Did you get it from here?”
With the Wind Monarch’s own strength, it was impossible for him to block one of Zhan Wuhen’s Divine Abilities, but in reality, the Wind Monarch had managed to block it. Even though he was only relying on the power of the artifact, it showed just how extraordinary he was.
This treasure had appeared out of nowhere and was obviously not something the Wind Monarch had possessed before, otherwise, he would have used it to deal with his Embodiment and the others, how could he use his blood essence to stimulate the power of the Great Emperor’s remains?
Since it wasn’t from before, the only explanation was that he had obtained it from the Passing of Time Temple!
This was the artifact left behind by the Passing of Time Great Emperor!
The Great Emperor’s Treasure was used to deal with the Great Emperor’s Divine Ability, allowing him to preserve his life. Zhan Wuhen’s Divine Ability had not been broken by him, but had been exhausted.
“That’s right!” The Wind Monarch smiled happily, “This artifact was obtained from that high platform. I’m afraid you don’t know, but this artifact was the defining artifact of the Passing of Time Great Emperor. After the Great Emperor fell, this artifact was left in the Passing of Time Temple, waiting for the fated one to obtain it! And this King is the fated one!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s expression remained unchanged, but in his heart he was cursing.
He was cursing Qiong Qi!
Since this guy was the mount of the Passing of Time Great Emperor and had guarded the Passing of Time Temple for countless years, he definitely knew about this hourglass treasure. Since he knew, why not take it?
Moreover, he had brought Yang Xiao and the others here before, so why would he leave the treasures here for others?
Now that the hourglass had fallen into the hands of the Wind Monarch, and the Divine Ability sealed in his Commander’s Token had been destroyed. This situation was truly awkward.
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with anger, feeling like he was about to be killed by Qiong Qi.
The Wind Monarch had obtained a new artifact and had used it to exchange a blow with the Great's divine ability. He was currently feeling very pleased with himself and no one was willing to share his joy with him. Yang Kai’s question had tickled his sore spot, so naturally, he was able to say one thing and say another.
Rubbing the hourglass in his hand, the Wind Monarch chuckled, “This is an endless hourglass, containing ten thousand and eight grains of Divine Sand of Time. Each grain of Divine Sand of Time was personally refined by the Passing of Time Great Emperor in the past. A single grain of sand can increase time by a month, ten thousand and eight grains, that is the power of eight hundred years! The Great Emperor’s Divine Ability is indeed extraordinary, but how can it compare to the power of this artifact?”
When Zhan Wuhen had first appeared, the Wind Monarch had been frightened to death, but now that the crisis had passed, it was as if he had foreseen the future.
