How could the sixth stem army care about the reaction of the Demon Race? More than three hundred thousand people had been holding back, seeing the allies on both sides slaughtering the Demon Race, they had long lost their patience. Now that the fat meat had been delivered to their mouths, how could they not eat it?
Poison Scorpion, Fire Ox, and Divine Dragon act as the vanguard, with a total of eighty thousand people, led by Xie Wuwei, Xi Lei and Zhu Qing, rushed over aggressively. The Three Garrison's Chief took the lead and rushed forward, the army following closely behind.
The Heavenly Fox, Falling Flower, Spiritual Snake and Furious Flood Dragon act as support, while the Heavenly Phoenix as the rear guard, surrounding the enemy.
The six hundred thousand Demon Race cultivators who had broken out from the Great Dragon Array were stunned. Many Demon Kings reacted quickly, quickly gathering their clansmen and reorganizing their forces. Looking back and forth, one could see the Great Dragon Array behind them while the other was being attacked by the Star Boundary’s great army. They quickly made a decision and rushed towards the sixth stem army.
They had tasted the power of the Great Dragon Array and knew that it was definitely not something six hundred thousand people could withstand. In comparison, although the army in front of them was quite imposing, their numbers were still slightly fewer than their own. In a real fight, it was still a matter of who won and who lost.
The great army charged forward without any fancy tricks, simply fighting to the death.
Before they could even get close to each other, the power of the Secret Artifact and Secret Techniques in their respective camps had already burst out and bombarded the opposing army, causing the multi-colored rays of light to eclipse the rising sun.
As soon as the power of the Secret Technique and Secret Artifact fell, the Demon Race suffered heavy casualties. On the side of the sixth stem army, the Wizard who had accompanied them began to chant complex and complicated incantations. As the light flashed, a dark red blood-red light appeared on the surface of each of their bodies, and a layer of dark blue light appeared, linking them together.
Although the Demon Race army’s Secret Technique was powerful, with the support of the Life Chains, even if the soldiers of sixth stem army suffered serious injuries, they would still be able to replenish their vitality and prevent them from dying immediately. Moreover, there were also Array Masters accompanying the army, the Formation Plate were activated one after another to protect the soldiers.
In the first confrontation, the Demon Race had suffered more than ten thousand casualties, while the sixth stem army had suffered less than a hundred.
Without any pause, a second round of attacks was launched from their respective camps.
Charge and attack, the distance between them rapidly shortened.
Looking down from high up in the sky, the two armies were like two giant ancient beasts that fiercely collided with each other.
After three long ranged attacks, the earth trembled as the two armies clashed.
As the dragon roar shook the sky, two giant red dragons appeared. One was more than 30 zhang long while the other was more than 50 zhang long. Their dragon might swept out in all directions, causing the Demon Race in front of them to freeze.
In that moment of hesitation, countless lives were lost. The Divine Dragon, Poison Scorpion, and Fire Ox became three sharp blades that ruthlessly stabbed into the Demon Race’s army. Wherever the soldiers of the three garrisons passed, the Demon Race fell into chaos and blood flowed like rivers.
One of the Demon Kings at the front managed to dodge the Divine Ability, but when he heard the screams of his clansmen behind him, he was shocked and revealed a look of horror.
Originally, they had thought that the number of enemies was small and their side would be able to win, but after coming into contact with each other, they discovered that this Star Boundary army was not something an ordinary Demon Race could resist. There were simply too many masters.
In a daze, he felt a massive force slam into his head and before he could react, his head was smashed into dust and his headless corpse swayed a few times before collapsing to the ground.
Xi Lei waved his hand and cursed, his eyes flashing a dark red light as his Monster Qi surged. Without even glancing at the Demon King who had been killed, he charged into the Demon Race’s army, slaughtering them like he was chopping vegetables.
In the sky, Zhu Qing and Zhu Lie transformed into their true forms, raising their heads and opening their mouths to spit out a torrent of flames towards the Demon Race’s most densely packed area.
The power of the Fire Dragon’s Breath was so great that even an ordinary Demon King would not be able to escape unscathed. With six hundred thousand Demon Race troops, how many Demon Kings could there be? If an ordinary Demon Race was contaminated by the Dragon’s Breath, they would immediately be burnt to a crisp.
After a few breaths of dragon breath, a large piece of empty space appeared in the middle of the Demon Race army.
The sixth stem army was like a hot knife cutting through butter. Although the number of Demon Race soldiers was almost twice that of the sixth stem army, in the face of this pack of wolves and fierce tigers, they simply had no strength to fight back. In just the time it took for an incense stick to burn, the formation that had been gathered with great difficulty was broken apart and the several hundred thousand Demon Race soldiers fell into chaos.
The Fire Ox, Poison Scorpion, and Divine Dragon Garrisons rushed back and forth between the Demon Race’s army, slaughtering their enemies and plowing the entire battlefield over again. Unable to fight back, the Demon Race fled in panic, but the Heavenly Fox and Falling Flower on both sides had already surrounded them, cutting off their path of retreat, and behind them was the Great Dragon Array. At this moment, the Demon Race’s army had no way to escape.
Victory had been decided!
In the first battle of the sixth stem army, facing two times the number of powerful enemies, it had simply crushed and trampled over the Demon Race, truly displaying great prestige.
However, on the battlefield, victory and defeat were not the only things that mattered. The six hundred thousand strong Demon Race army was isolated and helpless, and Yao Si had even ordered them to wipe out these six hundred thousand Demon Race, so as long as one Demon Race remained standing, the slaughter of the sixth stem army would not stop.
As the battle raged on, the Monster Kings who had come from the Wild Ancient Land all transformed into their true forms, their Monster Qi wreaking havoc on the battlefield.
Claws stained with green blood, artifacts blossoming with red flowers, they charged forward, killing their way to the end, turning back, charging again, and killing again!
Not to mention the ordinary Demon Race, even the Demon Kings were filled with fear at this moment, unable to display their full strength in front of the sixth stem army. Many of the Demon Kings were killed by the Monster Kings and Emperor Realms before they could even react.
Eagle Garrison's scouts continued to report the situation in front of them while Yao Si, who was guarding the Central Army, smiled.
There was nothing more exciting than hearing about the great victory in the first battle. Yang Kai had entrusted the sixth stem army to him. He had spent more than ten years to form an army, expending an unimaginable amount of energy and effort. Listening to these reports, he suddenly felt that the hard work he had put in over ten years was worth it. The sixth stem army had lived up to the reputation of the Star Boundary’s First Army!
The only flaw was… Yang Kai wasn’t here.
At the end of the day, the sixth stem army was Yang Kai’s, so Yao Si wanted to share with others the joy he felt at this moment. However, as the Army's Manager, he had his own majesty, so he couldn’t just laugh and joke around with Yang Xiao and Yang Xue to express his joy.
Looking at the battlefield in front of him, Yao Si narrowed his eyes and suddenly asked, “Is there a response from Sir?”
Yang Xiao quickly replied, “Not yet.”
The corner of Yao Si’s mouth twitched as he cursed Yang Kai in his heart. As the Army Commander, it was one thing for this guy to not show his face in public, but for him to not show up during the First Battle of the Sixth Stem Army was quite excessive. Three hundred thousand soldiers were fighting with their lives on the line, and without the Army Commander, it felt like something was missing.
Yao Si secretly decided that when he saw Yang Kai later, he would definitely give him a good scolding. If Yang Kai couldn’t do his job as the Army Commander, he was more than happy to do it for him.
At this moment, he suddenly felt a chill on his skin as a great sense of crisis enveloped his body and a deathly aura enveloped him.
Yao Si was shocked. In an instant, he felt an ethereal killing intent lock onto him. Although he was a Second-Order Emperor Realm and had extraordinary strength, it was only when this killing intent was released and the Death God descended that he realized the danger he was in. Not to mention, he was currently in the middle of the army and surrounded by a large number of ally. The fact that the enemy was able to sneak up on him and assassinate him so quietly showed just how strong the enemy was.
He was definitely not his opponent! In an instant, he had seen through the gap between himself and his opponent. In this life or death crisis, he was surprisingly calm.
A faintly discernible shadow suddenly appeared behind him and a cold dagger stabbed towards his back.
Yao Si didn’t panic. As he circulated his Emperor Qi, a transparent shield appeared behind him. This shield was surrounded by a brilliant light that swirled around his body, making it obvious that it was no ordinary object.
As the son of the Great Emperor, how could Yao Si not have some kind of life-saving treasure on him? It could even be said that Yao Si had several Commander’s Tokens that sealed the Great Emperor’s Divine Abilities.
The assassin choosing to assassinate him was simply the biggest mistake. However, this couldn’t be blamed on him. The sixth stem army had a strong momentum and his position in the rear of the Central Army was too conspicuous. With just a glance, it was obvious he was an important character. Killing ten thousand miscellaneous soldiers was nothing compared to killing a Commander.
Silently, the dagger and shield collided, and the dazzling light suddenly dimmed. The shield immediately shattered, and the dagger’s momentum was reduced as it continued to stab forward.
This moment of delay was enough for Yao Si to escape from the gates of hell and fly forward to avoid the fatal blow.
Unexpectedly, the dagger was like a maggot clinging to his bones as it pursued him relentlessly. The dagger was held in the hand of a blurry figure, making it impossible to see the face of this person.
Just as the dagger was about to stab into his back, a large hand suddenly appeared out of thin air and slapped down towards the figure’s head, grinning maliciously, “I’ve been waiting a long time for you!” From his tone, it seemed he had already anticipated this assassination.
The wind from this palm and its Monster Qi surged as it struck out, causing the sky to change color.
With a muffled groan, the entire world fell silent.
At this moment, Yang Xiao and Yang Xue, who had been standing guard behind Yao Si, finally came to their senses. Yang Xiao’s expression changed as he hurriedly rushed towards Yao Si, a faint Time Law lingering around his body as he vigilantly observed his surroundings.
Yang Xue drew her sword and used her Divine Sense to investigate the situation.
“He ran away!” Old Qiong frowned and coldly snorted, “He’s quite slippery.”
The one who had attacked at the critical moment just now was naturally Qiong Qi. Old Qiong was an Ancient Beast and was extremely powerful. In this world, amongst the Holy Spirits, the only ones who could suppress him were probably the two Dragon Clan Elders on the Dragon Island.
However, no matter how strong he was, he was not part of the sixth stem army. The reason he was guarding this place was mainly to protect Yang Xiao and Yang Xue.
He had concealed his aura so well that even the assassin who had come to ambush hadn’t been able to detect him. Caught off guard, he had been counterattacked and not only had he failed to kill Yao Si, but he had also suffered a loss.
As he spoke, Qiong Qi looked down at the ground, which was now covered in blood.
