As soon as he finished speaking, Yang Kai’s right eye became pitch black, a pure black that seemed capable of swallowing everything in the world. Demonic Qi roared from his body and soared into the sky, his originally weak aura suddenly soaring.
A buzzing sound echoed throughout the hall, and although it was loud, it sounded solemn, “Black Pupil Purgatory, Boundless Darkness!”
This was Yang Kai’s most powerful trump card, even more powerful than the Dragon Transformation Secret Technique. Back then, he had been able to escape unscathed from the battle of three Emperor Realm masters with his Principle Source Stage cultivation.
However, no matter how strong he was, the price he had to pay was not small. Every time he used it, Yang Kai would face the risk of falling into the Demon Path.
In the past, when he used this Secret Technique, he needed to unseal the seal on his dantian and release the Demon Qi in his dantian, but now that Yang Kai had broken through to the Third-Order Emperor Realm in the Demon Territory, he had become a true demon, and his strength had been transformed into Demon Qi, so he didn’t need to unseal anything at all. He didn’t need to worry about anything and could use the Boundless Darkness at any time.
Facing a Pseudo Emperor, Yang Kai didn’t dare to be careless, so he immediately summoned his Army Commander’s Token, wanting to end this battle quickly. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as he had hoped. The Great Emperor’s Divine Ability was useless against the Endless Hourglass. He also used the Dragon Transformation Secret Technique and summon the Mountain River Bell, but the result was still unsatisfactory. Now, all that was left was this Boundless Darkness.
This was also his final killing move.
To be honest, even if he used his most powerful trump card, Yang Kai couldn’t guarantee that he would be able to win against the Wind Monarch. In the Demon Territory, he had single-handedly killed a Half Saint, but Yin Si had been severely injured and her injuries from the Eternal Heaven Battle hadn’t healed yet, giving him an opportunity to take advantage of it. What’s more, Yin Si was proficient in bewitching techniques, so how could she not die after being suppressed by Yang Kai?
The Wind Monarch was different. He had been recuperating here for a hundred years and had fully recovered from his injuries. Even though he had suffered some losses in the previous battles, he was still much stronger than the Yin Si from back then.
As soon as the Boundless Darkness appeared, the hall fell into darkness. This kind of darkness was indescribable. Not only was one’s vision dark, even one’s perception was blocked.
The Wind Monarch also didn’t expect Yang Kai to be able to use such a powerful technique at such a time, causing his expression to change slightly, but he didn’t show any signs of panic. Using his left hand to protect his body, he waved the small fan in his right hand and waited.
At this moment, he suddenly sensed something and looked up.
Even though it was so dark that he couldn’t see anything, the Wind Monarch could still clearly feel that in the sky, there was a giant pitch-black round eye staring down at him. This invisible pressure made him feel somewhat flustered.
For some reason, Wind Monarch suddenly felt a great sense of danger. Without even thinking about it, he waved the small fan in his right hand and roared, sending out a tornado that transformed into a giant wind dragon.
On the front of the Wind Dragon, Yang Kai was rushing over, but when he saw this, his eyes twitched slightly. As expected, Pseudo Emperor was not so easy to deal with. In the World of Darkness, the Wind Monarch should not have been able to sense or see anything, but he was still able to accurately locate his position and even detect his movements. This showed just how extraordinary this person was.
Such a character had actually fallen into the Demonic Heavenly Dao and become a lackey of the Demon Race, it was truly a pity.
The Wind Dragon pounced forward and Yang Kai met it head on, raising his right hand and smashing down with the Mountain River Bell. The Dragon’s head shattered silently, but the Wind Dragon suddenly transformed into millions of wind blades that shot out in all directions.
Flames burst out from Yang Kai’s body as the Wind Blade struck the dragon scales. Although it was silent, its power was not small. Taking the initiative, Yang Kai even suffered some minor injuries, but he was still able to jump within ten meters of the Wind Monarch.
At such a close distance, Yang Kai raised his palm, and the huge palm completely covered the sky above the Wind Monarch’s head, slamming down fiercely.
The Wind Monarch suddenly raised his head as if he had seen the palm. With a fierce shout, he raised his palm to meet it, gathering the violent wind in his palm and transforming it into a giant palm.
After another silent collision, Yang Kai’s huge body was pushed back slightly and almost fell to the ground, while Wind Monarch's body suddenly shrank.
This strike was actually evenly matched!
Yang Kai grit his teeth, while the Wind Monarch was stunned.
Compared to the previous battle, this was a true clash of strength. A Third-Order Emperor Realm master was actually on par with him, so how could the Wind Monarch remain calm?
However, he didn’t stop at all, immediately stabilizing his body and following the direction of the palm strike, launching a counterattack.
How could Yang Kai retreat? He stepped on the ground, steadied himself, and punched out.
They collided again…
In an instant, in the pitch-black hall, a Pseudo Emperor and a Third-Order Emperor Realm master struck out, creating a dazzling display.
Yang Kai was more than happy to meet this kind of head-on confrontation. The Wind Monarch’s cultivation was higher than his, and he had cultivated for longer than Yang Kai. Now that he had the Endless Hourglass in his hands, if Yang Kai really wanted to engage in a battle of attrition with him, there was no hope of him winning, so the Wind Monarch’s actions were exactly what Yang Kai wanted.
However, Wind Monarch was helpless.
The power of the Endless Hourglass was not small, but it was difficult to break through this Secret Technique. His vision had been stolen, and even his perception had become extremely blurry, making it impossible for him to find Yang Kai. At this moment, he was both blind and deaf, so he could only rely on the weak aura he felt every time he fought with Yang Kai to lock onto his position. Once he lost sight of Yang Kai, he would never be able to find him again.
As such, he didn’t dare to stop and could only continue to fight with Yang Kai, hoping to defeat his enemy. At this moment, both of them were surging with Demonic Qi, obviously using their full strength and no longer holding back. At this point, it was already a life or death situation, and neither of them could take half a step back.
In the midst of the battle, Yang Kai constantly activated his Dragon Clan Secret Technique, but the Wind Monarch didn’t remain idle. Every time the small fan in his hand released a bone-piercing wind, Yang Kai would suffer greatly.
Under the violent energy, the hall was filled with chaos. Fortunately, this was the Passing of Time Temple, the palace of the Passing of Time Great Emperor, otherwise it would have collapsed long ago.
As time passed, the battle continued.
However, as time passed, whether it was Yang Kai or the Wind Monarch, their attacks became weaker. Such a life and death battle had greatly exhausted both of them.
After an unknown period of time, the darkness shrouding the hall gradually receded and the Wind Monarch finally saw light again.
Turning his head to look, Wind Monarch raised his brow before bursting into laughter. Pointing at Yang Kai, he said weakly, “Why bother!”
A hundred meters away, Yang Kai stood unsteadily, his entire body covered in blood and in an extremely sorry state. His tall dragon body had long since ceased to exist, and not only that, even his black hair had become snow white and flawless, his skin dried up and without any luster. He no longer had the appearance of a twenty year old youth, and at this moment, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say he was around forty years old.
As the two of them fought, Yang Kai’s lifespan continued to decrease. He had already lost more than two thousand years of his lifespan, and with the loss of his lifespan in the midst of this battle, Yang Kai felt as if he had reached the end of his lifespan. He knew that this feeling was not an illusion, but the end of his lifespan!
Perhaps a dozen years, a few dozen years, or at most a hundred years…
This kind of injury was far more serious than physical injuries. Even if one’s Soul was injured, there was still a way to heal it, but the loss of one’s lifespan was a fundamental loss. Other than some rare treasures that could increase one’s lifespan, no one in this world could treat it.
At this moment, Yang Kai was in a miserable state.
He wasn’t having a good time, and Wind Monarch wasn’t any better. Half of his chest had caved in, and his right arm was hanging limply. The small fan he was holding in his hand was nowhere to be seen, and his clothes were dyed red with blood as he stood there, blood dripping from his feet.
With the strength of a Third-Order Emperor Realm master, Yang Kai was the only one in the world who could achieve such a result.
Wind Monarch shook his head repeatedly, “Is it worth it?”
Yang Kai gasped for breath and let out a hoarse voice, “Of course!”
With the power of the Endless Hourglass, if it fell into the hands of the Wind Monarch, it would be like adding wings to a tiger. If it fell into the hands of Can Ye, the consequences would be unimaginable, so no matter what price he had to pay, as long as he could kill the Wind Monarch and leave the Endless Hourglass in the Passing of Time Temple, it would be worth it.
Saying so, Yang Kai raised his fist and punched towards Wind Monarch.
Its speed was as slow as a snail’s crawl, even a three-year-old child could easily dodge it.
Wind Monarch face twitched, “Madman!” He also brandished his fist to meet this attack. In the darkness, the two of them had fought like this countless times, so naturally they were familiar with it.
A dozen breaths later, the two fists collided.
With a loud bang, Wind Monarch and Yang Kai both vomited blood as they flew backwards, crashing into the wall and slowly sliding down, both walls covered in blood.
The Wind Monarch struggled to sit up, leaned against the wall, and wiped the blood from the corner of his mouth. Looking at Yang Kai across from him, he smiled, “In the end, this King won. If you die here, I’m afraid no one will know. I’m afraid the underworld's road will be very lonely.”
At this moment, the two of them were almost completely exhausted, but Yang Kai’s longevity was closely connected to the endless hourglass, which was still flowing. The Wind Monarch only needed to wait quietly for Yang Kai’s longevity to be exhausted before he died.
Yang Kai’s current state didn’t allow him to do anything other than wait for death.
So when the Wind Monarch said he had won, although it was somewhat embarrassing to be beaten by a Third-Order Emperor Realm master like this, the final result was still acceptable.
After Yang Kai died, all he needed to do was recuperate here for a while and continue refining the endless hourglass, allowing him to sit in the Passing of Time for the rest of his life. When he came out of seclusion, his name would spread far and wide.
At this moment, Yang Kai was also leaning against the wall with his head lowered, his long hair covering his eyes as he whispered, “You won? I’m afraid not!”
The Wind Monarch sneered, “Do you have any other methods? If you do, why don’t you use them? This king doesn’t have any strength to resist at this moment, you just need to come over and punch this king lightly.”
Yang Kai raised his eyes and stared at the Wind Monarch across from him through his long hair, grinning, “I’m afraid I don’t have the strength to beat you, but you won’t win either.”
