The assassin who had come to launch a sneak attack had failed and immediately fled. He was well versed in the ways of assassination.
However, although the assassin had escaped, he was still injured by Qiong Qi who had secretly attacked him. The blood stains on the ground were the best evidence.
At this moment, Eagle Garrison's Chief, Ying Fei, flew over from the distance, his face filled with anxiety. When he got close, he cupped his hands and hurriedly said, “Sir, there’s news from Army's General Li side that several Demon Race Half-Saints have disappeared from the battlefield. The Army's General asked Sir to…” Before he could finish speaking, he suddenly lowered his head to look at the blood on the ground, then at Yao Si, Yang Xiao and Yang Xue's expressions before suddenly asking, “Already here?”
Yao Si nodded, “It’s all thanks to Senior Qiong Qi.”
Qiong Qi didn’t take any credit for this and simply waved his hand lightly before returning to his position and retracting his aura. Apart from his fierce appearance, there was nothing special about him.
Yao Si looked up at Ying Fei and asked, “Did Sir Army's General say how many Half-Saints have disappeared?”
“Five Shadow Demons!”
Yao Si sneered, “I knew it would be like this.” To be able to sneak up on him without him noticing, only when he was in trouble was he alarmed, other than Shadow Demons, no other Demon Race had this ability.
Shadow Demons were difficult to deal with to begin with, not to mention that this newcomer was a Half-Saint. If it weren’t for Qiong Qi guarding him, Yao Si would definitely have suffered a loss. Although he wouldn’t have been killed, he still had several life-saving treasures on him, but it was inevitable that he would be covered in dust.
As the two of them were talking, a few thousand kilometers away, a giant figure appeared. This figure had a head that reached the sky and feet that seemed to step on the ground, like a giant. However, this figure was ethereal, and this figure was none other than the figure of Serene Soul Great Emperor.
Serene Soul Great Emperor’s true body had long since chased after the Demon Saints and was no longer on the battlefield. At this moment, his figure appeared a few thousand kilometers away. It was obvious that one of the Army Commanders had activated the Great Emperor Divine Ability sealed within the Commander’s Token and summoned the Great Emperor’s phantom.
Serene Soul Great Emperor’s figure flickered and soon disappeared.
Seeing this scene from afar, everyone from the Sixth Stem Army understood that the five Shadow Demon Half Saints who had escaped from the battlefield had probably spread out to assassinate the various Army Commanders. The Sixth Stem Army had the protection of Qiong Qi, so the Shadow Demon Half Saints who had come to assassinate them had been forced to retreat, while the other Army Commanders didn’t necessarily have a master like Qiong Qi with them.
In this life or death crisis, they could only activate the Divine Ability of the Commander’s Token to defend themselves.
He didn’t know if the Army Commander thousands of kilometers away was dead or alive!
Ying Fei saw the worry in Yao Si’s eyes and cupped his fists, “This humble subordinate is willing to inquire.”
Yao Si pondered for a moment before nodding, “Be careful, return quickly!”
Ying Fei nodded as a pair of giant black wings unfurled from his back and he soared into the sky.
Yao Si no longer paid attention to the movements a few thousand kilometers away and turned to look towards the battlefield where the Sixth Stem Army was located. The six hundred thousand Demon Race soldiers had long since lost their ability to fight back in front the powerful army of Sixth Stem Army. The three vanguard forces charged back and forth, including the Furious Flood Dragon, the Heavenly Fox, the Falling Flower, and the Spiritual Snake. Even Heavenly Phoenix Garrison, which was responsible for supervising the army, was led by Liu Yan and Su Yan into the battlefield and recklessly slaughtered their enemies.
Nearly nine hundred thousand people were fighting to the death within a few hundred kilometers of the battlefield. The ground was covered in mud, and as far as the eye could see, corpses were everywhere.
After observing for a while, he realized that the situation had already been decided, and it was only a matter of time before the sixth stem army wiped out all six hundred thousand people.
A moment later, Ying Fei returned and Yao Si looked over. Ying Fei immediately reported, “The other four Shadow Demon Half-Saints have all appeared, but none of them have made any significant contributions. Apart from Ding Wu Army Commander Ma Qing, the other three assassination attempts have all failed.”
Yao Si nodded lightly and asked, “Is his life in danger?”
Ying Fei replied, “Sir doesn’t need to worry. When this subordinate arrived, the Wood Spirit Race’s Patriarch Mu Na had already personally treated Sir Ma’s injuries. Although he won’t be able to fully recover in a short time, his life shouldn’t be in danger.”
“That’s for the best.”
Ying Fei turned his head to look at the noisy battlefield behind him before turning back and stammering, “Sir, now that the situation has been decided, you see…”
Yao Si smiled lightly, “You want to kill the enemy?”
Ying Fei said, “It’s boring just looking at it.” He was a Monster King after all, so his killing intent was quite strong. However, Yang Kai had assigned him to be the Eagle Garrison's Chief, responsible for scouting and gathering intelligence, but now that the Demon Race had been defeated, there was no need for him to spy on them, so he naturally wanted to go into battle and kill the enemy.
Yao Si pondered for a moment before waving his hand and remaining silent.
Ying Fei was overjoyed, “Many thanks, Sir.” Turning around, he happily rushed towards the battlefield and soon entered the battlefield, his pair of sharp claws slashing through the air and causing blood to rain.
The great battle lasted for an entire day and night, and when there was no sign of the Demon Race on the battlefield, the sixth stem army gradually calmed down. Turning their heads to look around, everyone’s killing intent soared to the sky, each of them seemingly walking out from a sea of blood, their bodies dripping with blood. Some were enemies while others were their own.
After a short period of silence, the crowd burst into cheers!
With the sound of the war drums, the sixth stem army returned to the camp to rest.
After a quick count, the number of casualties was announced, and Yao Si nodded lightly as he listened to the report. Facing two times the number of enemies, the sixth stem army had displayed unimaginable combat strength and wiped out the enemy, but the price they had to pay was only thirty thousand deaths.
This number was within his expectations and was also acceptable, but almost everyone who survived was injured.
The first battle of the sixth stem army had ended, but the struggle between the two worlds continued.
The giant dragon coiled around the battlefield, constantly slaughtering the invading Demon Race, but the Demon Race seemed to be inexhaustible, constantly replenishing itself from the black hole.
Even though the Great Dragon Array was set up by more than twenty Star Boundary armies with nearly tens of millions of people, it was still on the verge of collapse after several intense battles.
Inside the Great Array, large and small groups of Demon Race soldiers were constantly being released to slow down the pressure on the Great Array, while the Star Boundary Army guarding it had to immediately block the Demon Race’s path and engage in a slaughter.
After a day of rest, the gap in the Great Dragon Array was opened, but this time, the number of Demons released was not as terrifying as the first time, only about two hundred thousand.
After a day’s rest, the sixth stem army had reorganized itself and was now facing a powerful enemy, but it had still paid an extremely small price to destroy the Demon Race.
For a time, morale was high, and several Monster Kings with loud voices all asked Yao Si to send a message to Li Wuyi, asking him to send more Demon Race over.
Such a ridiculous request was naturally rejected without any hesitation.
The Monster Kings strength was profound and they were able to kill as easily as cutting melons and vegetables. Even with the Demon King in front of them, it was impossible for them to last more than a few moves.
However, not all of the Sixth Stem Army a Monster Kings. Although most of them were strong enough, they weren’t very strong. After two battles, even if they weren’t injured, they still needed to replenish their energy.
Fighting too frequently was not beneficial to the army, and only by relaxing could they kill more of the Demon Race. Li Wuyi understood this principle even more.
It was just that the sixth stem army had time to reorganize, and so did the other armies guarding outside, but what about the people inside the Great Dragon Array?
Yao Si looked at the giant dragon crawling on the ground with a worried expression.
If the World Entrance was not sealed, the Great Dragon Array would sooner or later be destroyed by the Demon Race. At that time, no one would be able to stop the Demon Race from wreaking havoc.
As time passed, Yao Si could clearly feel the exhaustion of the Great Dragon Array, and the most obvious sign was that the frequency at which the Great Dragon Array was being breached was increasing.
Less than half a day after the second battle ended, the sixth stem army welcomed the third battle. This time, only a few hundred thousand Demons were released from the Great Dragon Array.
However, this hundred thousand was even more difficult to deal with than the second time.
Under the continuous battles of his the sixth stem army, although their morale was high, their manpower was limited and their energy could no longer keep up. The Great Dragon Array's side was also unable to bear the weight. Although the Great Array was still in good condition, it was because the accompanying Wizard were constantly releasing Bloodlust Techniques to stimulate everyone’s potential, and the effect of the Life Chain was a hidden danger that could not be ignored.
With the support of the Life Chains, the damage suffered by everyone would naturally be reduced, but with the accumulation of small amounts, there would eventually be a moment when the Life Chains collapsed and the Great Dragon Array would collapse.
According to Yao Si’s estimations, the Great Dragon Array could only last for two more days at most. If they didn’t come up with a way to break it in two days, the Star Boundary would have to withdraw its forces. When the billions of Demons poured in, the Western Region would definitely fall.
On the sixth stem army side, only the thirty thousand elites of the Central Army remained intact. It wasn’t that Yao Si was unwilling to send them to the battlefield, but after a few days of bloody battles, Yao Si wanted to use the Central Army as a surprise force, perhaps it would play an unimaginable role at the critical moment.
Seeing the situation inside the Great Dragon Array tense up, Yao Si was hesitating about whether he should send the Central Army into the battlefield when he suddenly heard an excited voice behind him, “Junior Brother?”
Yao Si turned around and saw a familiar face, immediately gritting his teeth, “Sir has finally returned?”
It was Xia Ningchang who called out 'Junior Brother', Yang Kai had appeared beside her.
Smiling at Xia Ningchang, Yang Kai didn’t have time to say anything to her as he wore a helpless look on his face, “I just saw your message and rushed here. How is the situation?”
As he spoke, he raised his eyes and looked over, his expression turning cold.
Although he had participated in the war between the two worlds before, he had never seen such a magnificent scene. The scene of him leading an army to defend Tiger Roar City against the Demon Race more than ten years ago was nothing compared to this scene.
Yao Si knew that now was not the time to criticize him, so he suppressed his anger and said, “As Sir can see, the Great Dragon Array over there won’t last much longer, and the Star Boundary’s armies are all exhausted. If we don’t find a way to resolve this as soon as possible, the Star Boundary will definitely lose.”
