There was no clash of auras, no confrontation of energy, Iron Blood, Serene Soul, and Beast Martial all appeared together to confront Can Ye, who had come alone, but all they did was look at each other across the void.
It wasn’t that the three Great Emperors didn’t want to kill Can Ye, it was just that Can Ye wasn’t easy to kill, so rashly attacking him would be of no use at all. Perhaps they would even implicate the Star Boundary army that was guarding the surrounding area.
Last time, Iron Blood and Serene Soul had joined forces to pursue him, but in the end, they had only managed to injure Can Ye. The Night Shadow Great Emperor, who possessed the Shadow Demon Bloodline, was unparalleled in the Dao of Concealment and Escape. If he wanted to hide, no one would be able to find him.
Tian Shu was already acting in secret, while Flower Shadow and Ice Feather were also secretly supporting him, waiting for him to draw out a thread of Heavenly Secret to lock onto Can Ye’s aura. At that time, he would have no way out.
After a long silence, the oppressive atmosphere was like the calm before a storm, pressing down on everyone’s hearts, making it difficult to breathe.
“Are you a man or a woman?” Mo Huang was the first to break the silence. This question had been suppressed in his heart for a long time, so it was quite uncomfortable not to ask it directly.
Iron Blood and Serene Soul slowly turned to look at him while Mo Huang shrugged, “Aren’t you curious? In any case, I’m dying of curiosity.”
Iron Blood and Serene Soul withdrew their gazes and looked towards Can Ye.
Can Ye didn’t answer, as if he hadn’t heard anything, causing Mo Huang to feel somewhat awkward as he curled his lips.
“What brings you here?” Iron Blood asked. His voice wasn’t loud, but it was firm and forceful. Listening to his words, it was as if he was just exchanging pleasantries with an old friend, not a life or death confrontation.
Can Ye still didn’t respond, standing still like a wooden stake.
The three Great Emperors looked at each other, instinctively feeling that something was wrong, but they were also happy to stall for time. Serene Soul quietly contacted Tian Shu and asked how long it would be before he could completely lock onto Can Ye’s aura. Once Tian Shu’s side succeeded, they would be able to launch an all-out attack!
Tian Shu was obviously busy and didn’t have time to pay attention to him, so his disciple, Gao Zhan, sent him a message.
Using divination to lock onto the aura of a Great Emperor was not an easy task even for someone like Great Emperor Tian Shu who personally taking action. What’s more, this had happened so suddenly that Tian Shu hadn’t had time to prepare, so whether or not his Secret Technique could succeed was still unknown.
After receiving the reply, Serene Soul secretly sent a voice transmission to Iron Blood and Beast Martial, both of them secretly smacking their lips. An incense stick’s worth of time wasn’t long, but it also depended on who they were trying to delay. As a Great Emperor, even if Can Ye appeared here, it was impossible for him to be completely defenseless, so whether or not they could stall for time was uncertain.
However, the worst case scenario would be a group attack. In any case, if several Great Emperors joined forces, they wouldn’t be at a disadvantage, but if they were to alert the enemy, wanting to eliminate Can Ye once and for all would be wishful thinking.
“Can you turn back?” Zhan Wuhen asked again, a look of sincerity on his face, “You were born in the Star Boundary, grew up in it, obtained the approval of this world, and became a Great Emperor, so why do you serve the Demon Race?”
Serene Soul also said, “If you turn back, let bygones be bygones.”
Beast Martial said, “But first you must tell us whether you are a man or a woman.”
“Heh heh…” Under the night sky, a burst of light laughter rang out. Can Ye, who had not made a single sound since he appeared, finally spoke, seemingly disdainful, and mocking.
The voice entered everyone’s ears and was extremely clear, but the strange thing was that no one could deduce Can Ye’s gender from this voice. The voice wasn’t difficult to hear and was actually quite pleasant to the ear, but just by listening to this voice, it wasn’t wrong to say that he was a man, or that she was a woman…
No one had ever heard such a strange sound.
Yao Si already felt that something was wrong, so he quickly turned to Su Yan and said, “Message Sir, inform him of the situation here.”
Su Yan replied, “I’ve already sent a message.”
Yang Kai had previously instructed that if anything major happened here, they must inform him immediately. Can Ye appearing on the battlefield was a major event, so Su Yan immediately contacted Yang Kai.
“What did Sir say?” Yao Si asked.
Su Yan shook her head, “No response, he’s probably busy.”
Yao Si frowned and didn’t hesitate in the slightest before issuing an order, “All of you, return to your respective camps and clear your forces. Be vigilant and be on guard at all times.”
Hearing this, the Garrison's Chiefs who were watching the show quickly agreed and quickly returned to their respective camps.
The guard beside him swallowed his saliva and asked, “Does Sir think there will be a fight?”
Yao Si said, “Night Shadow’s appearance is a rare opportunity, how could the Great Emperors miss it?” Saying so, he shook his head, “However, I’m afraid we won’t be able to intervene in the battle between the Great Emperors, so we can only try to protect ourselves.”
If the Great Emperors were to fight, the shockwaves from their battle would definitely be enough to destroy the world.
After Can Ye finished laughing, he suddenly shouted, “Ha!”
His hands, which had been hidden in his sleeves all this time, shot out like lightning and formed a series of hand seals in front of him, causing his Emperor Qi to surge violently. In an instant, the heavens and earth shook and a humming sound rang out from all over the Star Boundary as a sudden change occurred!
Zhan Wuhen had already made his move. He had been paying attention to Can Ye’s every move, and as soon as Can Ye spoke, he had already taken a step forward. Without even seeing him move, he had already arrived in front of Can Ye and lightly punched out.
Although his fist seemed weak, it actually shattered the void, releasing a bright red light.
Following closely behind Iron Blood was Beast Martial Great Emperor. It wasn’t that Mo Huang’s reaction was slower than Iron Blood's, but rather that he had attacked at the same time as Iron Blood. Among the ten Great Emperors of the Star Boundary, which one of them had an undeserved reputation?
A faint roar of a beast rang out from Mo Huang’s body, and with a wave of his hand, a thick axe appeared in his hand. This axe was covered in rust, like a woodcutter’s axe that had been idle for many years.
But when this axe swung down towards Can Ye, the world changed color.
Serene Soul stood in place and did not follow, but his Divine Sense surged like a tide as an invisible Soul attack transformed into a Soul Spear and shot towards Can Ye’s Knowledge Sea.
Can Ye moved, the three Great Emperors moved, and a great battle was about to break out!
This matter had happened too quickly, so no one could react in time. If there was enough time, Iron Blood and the others would rather wait until Tian Shu Secret Technique was used before taking action, but Can Ye obviously wouldn’t give them this opportunity, coming here alone and taking the initiative to attack without even saying a word.
With the four Great Emperors at the center of the world, the world began to spin and everything rapidly receded. The four of them were the axis of the world.
A devastating punch was thrown towards him, an axe that could overturn the sky and earth, and a fierce Soul Spear. Even though Can Ye was also a Great Emperor, if he were to take this blow head on, he would definitely not have a good end.
At this critical moment, Can Ye actually didn’t move.
Iron Blood raised his brow, feeling that something was wrong, but at this moment, he had no choice but to release his full strength. The power behind his fist became even fiercer, threatening to shatter this world.
The moment his fist landed, a ripple suddenly appeared behind Can Ye’s back, and a dustpan-sized black dot appeared behind him.
It was the darkest hour before dawn, but the black dot was darker than any other.
As soon as the black spot appeared, it expanded rapidly, transforming from the size of a dustpan into a hundred-meter radius of darkness.
Zhan Wuhen’s fist landed on Can Ye’s body, but strangely, he didn’t receive any force at all, his entire body directly passing through Can Ye’s body and disappearing into the black spots.
Mo Huang’s axe also failed to cut through Can Ye’s body, not even leaving a trace of blood. Mo Huang coldly snorted, knowing that Can Ye’s Secret Technique was similar to the Art of Void Transformation. Although it seemed to be weak, it was actually just a clever counterattack.
The axe swung upwards again and the Emperor Qi in the air violently shook, causing the surrounding space to tremble and shatter.
At the same time, Serene Soul’s Soul attack arrived, combining with the power of three Great Emperors. Even though Can Ye’s physical body had transformed into the void, he was still unable to block it. He spat out a mouthful of blood and flew backwards, his aura rapidly falling.
In an instant, Can Ye was seriously injured!
Mo Huang still wanted to chase after him, but Can Ye flung his cloak and quickly disappeared. Mo Huang’s brow wrinkled as he faintly felt that Can Ye had not left and was still nearby, but he couldn’t find any trace of him. The Night Shadow Great Emperor’s concealment technique was unparalleled.
“This is bad,” Serene Soul stared at the black figure with a solemn expression.
Just now, Can Ye had endured a round of attacks from three Great Emperors and was about to use a Secret Technique, but after doing so, this black color appeared.
Spectral Soul sensed a familiar aura from it, it was the aura of the Demon Territory, and behind this black spot was another world!
The passageway between the two worlds sealed by Yang Kai had been reopened!
“Bastard, what a waste of this world’s acknowledgement in him! You traitorous dog!” Mo Huang flew into a rage, knowing that Can Ye was nearby and cursing him harshly, not caring about his identity as the Great Emperor.
Although he had a rough appearance, as a Great Emperor, which one of them wasn’t a meticulous person? In this short instant, he understood how Can Ye had broken the seal.
Can Ye was the Great Emperor of the Star Boundary and had the approval of the Heavens and Earth, but he also had the Shadow Demon Bloodline, which was related to both the Star Boundary and the Demon Territory. It was this connection that allowed him to use himself as a bridge to connect the two worlds and open up a passage.
No one else could imitate this, not even the other Great Emperors. The Demon Saints from the Demon Territory also couldn’t, and in this world, only Can Ye had this ability.
It wasn’t difficult to figure this out later, but no one had expected Can Ye to do so.
By the time he noticed, it was already too late.
However, when communicating with the two worlds, Can Ye would also be implicated by the two worlds and would have to pay a certain price, but now that Can Ye was hidden, no one knew what the price was.
“Gone without a trace,” Yao Jun looked at the black spot and raised his brow, “Oh, they're back.”
Amidst the black spots, Zhan Wuhen’s figure rapidly flew back, his face slightly pale. After stabilizing himself, his hand behind his back also trembled slightly.
Staring at the black spots in front of him with his sharp eyes, he shouted, “They’re here!”
