The great hall instantly transformed into a sea of flames, filling the entire space, leaving no gap.
Only a gentle breeze lingered around the Wind Monarch, and there was no light within ten meters of him, as if he was a reef in a raging storm. The Wind Monarch coldly snorted, “You won’t shed tears until you see the coffin!”
Saying so, he stepped forward and slowly walked towards Yang Kai. The sea of flames that filled the sky parted to reveal a path for him to pass through. Wherever the Wind Monarch went, the flames would extinguish.
In the blink of an eye, he had arrived ten meters away from Yang Kai. In terms of figure, he was several dozen times weaker than the current Yang Kai, but in terms of aura, he was superior, as if he was the one standing high above. Lifting his hand, Wind Monarch's empty right hand formed a small fan. This fan was only a foot long, but it was flowing with light. Wind Monarch raised the small fan and gently waved it towards Yang Kai.
With a violent gust of wind, a stream of wind blades shot out from the fan, transforming into dozens of meters in the blink of an eye and slashing towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai wanted to dodge, but his perception of time had been distorted, so how could he dodge? By the time he reacted, the Wind Blade had already arrived in front of him and he hurriedly raised his arms to block.
With a bang, Yang Kai’s body shook and his hill-like body slid backwards, a huge wound appearing on his arms as blood flowed out.
Taking advantage of this momentum, Yang Kai turned around and swept his dragon tail towards the Wind Monarch. The dragon tail covered in dragon scales was like a long whip that swept across the void, causing it to tremble and collapse.
The Wind Monarch sneered and took a few steps to dodge.
Yang Kai’s attack missed and he pounced forward, his Dragon Language sounding again. The Wind Monarch raised the small fan in his hand and sent it flying towards Yang Kai again. This time, it wasn’t just a single wind blade, but more than a dozen. Up, down, left, right, all of Yang Kai’s escape routes were sealed.
Unable to block, unable to avoid, Yang Kai charged forward, his face filled with ruthlessness and determination.
“You’re overestimating yourself!” The Wind Monarch sneered, the endless hourglass in his left hand trembling slightly as he tried to use the same trick again, using the power of the Divine Sand of Time to affect Yang Kai’s perception.
However, at this moment, a loud bang rang out and the halo around Yang Kai’s body collapsed, causing him to disappear.
The Wind Monarch’s eyes narrowed, and in the next moment, he felt a huge figure blocking the light in front of him. Looking up, he saw Yang Kai looking down at him as if he was looking at an ant. As he chewed, he opened his mouth and spat out a dragon breath.
The dragon breath cut through the void, seemingly unstoppable as it slashed towards the Wind Monarch’s head.
The Wind Monarch let out a startled cry and dodged to the side, but a fierce force rushed towards him from the side, as if it was waiting for him.
Turning his head to look, he saw Yang Kai’s right fist sweeping towards him, the force behind it terrifying to the extreme. The corner of Wind Monarch’s eyes twitched slightly. Although his cultivation was higher than Yang Kai’s, if he were to be hit by this fist, he would likely suffer greatly.
Making a prompt decision, Yang Kai transformed into a light breeze and disappeared.
Yang Kai’s fist hit nothing but air, feeling somewhat annoyed.
In a corner of the hall, the Wind Monarch appeared again and stared at the large bell in Yang Kai’s other hand, coldly snorting, “Mountain River Bell!”
At this moment, not only was Yang Kai holding the Mountain River Bell, but he was also constantly flicking his fingers, causing the sound of the Mountain River Bell to ring out in the hall. A halo of light spread out from the Mountain River Bell and cleansed Yang Kai’s body.
The Wind Monarch had been here for a hundred years and had obtained the Endless Hourglass of the Passing of Time Great Emperor, using it to extract Yang Kai’s lifespan and affecting Yang Kai’s perception of time. However, if he had the Great Emperor’s Treasure, would Yang Kai not have it?
The Mountain River Bell was also a Great Emperor’s artifact. Everyone had it, so who could be afraid of it? The might of a Great Emperor’s artifact was something only a Great Emperor’s artifact could deal with.
As such, when Yang Kai summoned the Mountain River Bell and flicked it, he was able to restore his perception to its original state. However, the connection between his body and the endless hourglass had not been severed. As the Divine Sand of Time flowed, Yang Kai’s lifespan continued to decrease.
Yang Kai was unable to display the full power of the Great Emperor’s artifact, but at the same time, Wind Monarch was also unable to display the full power of the Endless Hourglass. At this level, the two of them were both half-baked.
The sound of the bell continued to ring as an invisible suppressive force spread out. In the midst of all this, Wind Monarch’s body felt heavy, as if an invisible mountain was pressing down on his shoulders.
The power to suppress everything, Emperor Charm that could turn the sky, this was the Mountain River Bell. It had never been a treasure that could trap enemies, but Yang Kai had always used it to deal with enemies.
At this moment, after activating the power of the Mountain River Bell, Yang Kai immediately broke free from the effects of the endless hourglasses and returned to normal.
The Wind Monarch obviously noticed this as well and stared at the Mountain River Bell for a moment before sighing lightly and saying, “Enemies should be eliminated rather than kept alive. You killed so many people from my Demonic Heavenly Dao, this King has also let you suffer a small loss. Why don’t we forget about today’s matter? You walk your own path while I cross my own, how about it?”
Against someone who was proficient in the Space Laws, Wind Monarch really didn’t have much confidence in being able to deal with Yang Kai without the endless hourglasses. Unless Yang Kai fought him to the death and didn’t try to escape, if Yang Kai wanted to escape, there was nothing he could do.
The Wind Monarch didn’t want to accept such a battle. He was already satisfied with being able to enter the Passing of Time Temple and obtain this endless hourglass. As for those who had died, how many people in this world had died? It was their honor to be able to devote their lives to the cause of the Dao Master.
“Fine!” Yang Kai replied, grinning fiercely, “Leave behind that endless hourglass and cripple your own cultivation, I’ll let you leave.”
The Wind Monarch narrowed his eyes and sneered, “Junior, this King sincerely seeks peace, but that does not mean this King is afraid of you. If you continue to be so stubborn, this King can only kill you here.”
“Come at me if you dare,” Yang Kai raised his hand and beckoned.
“Is there no room for negotiation?” Wind Monarch narrowed his eyes slightly.
Yang Kai laughed, “I’ve already told you, those who walk different paths cannot coexist. Why are you still so long-winded?”
The Wind Monarch took a deep breath and wore a helpless expression, “Since you want to force me, then prepare to pay the price.” As he spoke, he raised the endless hourglass in his hand and poured his Emperor Qi into it.
Inside the hourglass, the flow of the Divine Sand of Time was neither fast nor slow. After fighting with Yang Kai for so long, only half of the Divine Sand was flowing.
In other words, Yang Kai had only lost four hundred years of his lifespan.
However, when the Wind Monarch acted, the rate at which the Divine Sand was flowing suddenly increased, and the remaining half of the sand was completely drained in just three to five breaths.
Yang Kai couldn’t help letting out a muffled groan as a mouthful of blood welled up in his throat and he nearly spat it out. Although there was no external force, losing more than four hundred years of his lifespan in such a short period of time was equivalent to suffering a heavy blow, causing his vitality to drop significantly.
This wasn’t the end. When the Divine Sand in the hourglass completely flowed to the other side, the Wind Monarch once again turned the endless hourglass over and poured his strength into it, grinning fiercely, “With this hourglass, how are you going to fight with this King? This King is willing to let you off just because he is merciful, do you really think this King can’t do anything to you?”
Seeing his own lifespan rapidly deplete was definitely not a good feeling, and not only could he see it, but he could also personally feel it. How could Yang Kai just sit there and wait for death? As the Mountain River Bell continued to ring, Yang Kai’s figure flickered and he disappeared from his original position. When he reappeared, he was already behind the Wind Monarch, his dragon claws tearing through the air as he tried to grab him.
On the other hand, the Wind Monarch seemed to have eyes on his back as he waved the small fan in his right hand, sending a sharp wind blade towards Yang Kai.
With a few more sounds, Yang Kai didn’t try to dodge, instead leaving a few bloody wounds on his giant dragon claw. Gritting his teeth, Wind Monarch didn’t expect Yang Kai to be so ruthless, but he also felt a headache over how tough Yang Kai’s body was. The power of his small fan was incomparably sharp, and even if an ordinary Emperor Realm master were to be cut down, they would immediately be torn to pieces. Yang Kai’s Dragon Transformation body, however, was incomparably tough, with only a few wounds, barely enough to damage his bones.
Without any delay, the Wind Monarch transformed into a gust of wind and soared into the sky.
He was caught off guard by the Mountain River Bell, Yang Kai’s right hand continued to flick the Mountain River Bell, how could he not be on guard against his Wind Transformation escape? As long as the Mountain River Bell could cover him, Yang Kai had a hundred ways to kill him.
However, how could the Wind Monarch so easily fall into this trap? The wind that was visible to the naked eye changed directions several times and actually broke free from the suppression of the Mountain River Bell, reappearing on the other side.
The Divine Sand in the hourglass once again flowed out cleanly, and Yang Kai couldn’t help spitting out a mouthful of blood as his 30 zhang tall figure suddenly shrank. His lifespan had been drained, and his vitality had weakened, making it impossible for him to maintain his Dragon Transformation.
However, Yang Kai’s attacks didn’t stop at all, as if he was determined to eat a piece of the enemy’s flesh even if he died. As he rushed forward, the Space Laws surged and the Moonblade slashed through the air.
The Wind Monarch activated the power of the hourglass and the moonblade suddenly stopped in front of him, allowing him to easily dodge it. He stared at Yang Kai as if he was looking at a madman, “Do you want to die?”
Yang Kai grinned maliciously, “If you have the ability, then drain my lifespan!”
The corners of Wind Monarch’s eyes twitched as he turned the hourglass, but this time, the Divine Sand did not flow rapidly, instead flowing at the same speed as before.
It wasn’t that he didn’t want to, it was just that he couldn’t. He had obtained the Endless Hourglass for a hundred years, and although he had refined it, he was unable to display the full power of this artifact. Forcefully activating it twice was already his limit, and he had paid a great price to do so, so he was unable to quickly activate the power of the hourglass.
Yang Kai had seen this point, which was why he was so fearless. He was now a Third-Order Emperor Realm master, and his lifespan was at least several thousand years. The Divine Sand in the hourglass flowed for no more than eight hundred years, and two times was about 1600 years. Counting the time he had been crushed in the two Season Mountain Range, he still had a chance to live! Using his own lifespan to compete with the other party’s methods was also something he had no choice but to do. If it wasn’t because he had no other choice, why would Yang Kai do this?
Seeing that the Wind Monarch had run out of tricks, Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “You’re finished!”
