The Demon Race Half-Saint who had led the Demon Race’s army to attack High Heaven Palace was not weak. He was born a Stone Demon and had a strong innate defensive ability, but facing Bai Zhuo, Bai Ya, and the Lian Sisters alone, how could he have a good end?
When the sixth stem army rushed to the left and right to kill the invading enemy, this Stone Demon Half-Saint had already been killed by Bai Zhuo and the others. The Stone Demon’s defense was indeed outstanding, but everyone here was a Half-Saint. With a strong shield and a powerful spear, fighting one against four was naturally a tragedy.
However, Bai Ya had also suffered heavy injuries. Seeing that it was impossible for him to escape, the Stone Demon Half-Saint desperately fought back, but even the four Half-Saints were unable to remain unscathed.
With the death of the Stone Demon Half-Saint, the Demon Race army, which was already at an absolute disadvantage, became even more panicked. Even if they had the courage to face ten thousand enemies head-on, none of them were willing to take the initiative to seek death and immediately fled.
The Sixth Stem Army chased for a thousand kilometers before withdrawing.
When Yang Kai saw Bai Ya again, he saw him sitting cross-legged on the ground with a pale face and a bloody hole in his abdomen that seemed to have penetrated his entire body.
“How is it?” Yang Kai asked.
Bai Ya opened his eyes and weakly shook his head, “I won’t die, but I’m afraid I’ll need to rest for a year or so.”
Yang Kai said, “My High Heaven Palace is currently filled with the most outstanding Alchemists in the entire Star Boundary, and we have the best Spirit Pills. You can rest in the palace and also take care of my High Heaven Palace.”
With regards to this arrangement, Bai Ya naturally had no objections, so Yang Kai immediately arranged for Hua Qingsi to lead him into the palace and arrange a place for him.
“Sir, look around here…” Yao Si walked forward and whispered solemnly.
Without needing him to remind him, Yang Kai had already discovered the abnormal situation around him. This battle had killed many Demon Race cultivators, so it could be said that outside High Heaven Palace, the mountains were filled with Demon Race corpses.
In the past, when the Demon Race died, there was nothing special about it, but now, the Demon Race’s corpses were actually emitting Demonic Qi. One or two of them were fine, but if all of the Demon Race’s corpses were like this, it would be quite terrifying. Two or three hundred thousand Demon Race corpses were filled with Demonic Qi and were being drawn towards a certain direction by an invisible force.
Outside High Heaven Palace, Demonic Qi filled the air and darkness shrouded the area. Even though the sky was clear, it still felt like night.
Yang Kai looked in the direction where the Demonic Qi was coming from and saw a giant black dot in the sky, as if someone had splashed ink onto a painting of a blue sky and white clouds.
Beneath this black dot was the Demon Land!
The black dot was a few thousand kilometers away from High Heaven Palace, but it was so large that it was the size of a millstone in Yang Kai’s field of vision.
Yang Kai frowned. A few thousand kilometers away from High Heaven Palace, such a Demon Land had appeared, similar to the situation around the Western Domain Battlefield, and the entire Star Boundary had been eroded into the Demon Land.
After the sixth stem army battle in front of the Great Array, there is no strength to fight another battle for a short time.
Yang Kai pondered for a moment and was just about to inquire about the situation when he saw Hua Qingsi rush over, “Palace Master, the Branch Sect has been attacked! In addition, Temple Master Wen of Azure Sun Temple has requested reinforcements. The Demon Race’s army is attacking Azure Sun Temple, with a Half-Saint amongst them, no one in the Temple can fight back!”
Yang Kai’s face went cold.
The great battle in the Western Regions and the great victory of the Star Boundary had originally been a decisive battle, but who would have thought that the chaotic situation had only just begun. Now, the entire Star Boundary was like a house with a broken roof, with wind and rain leaking from every corner, giving people a feeling that a storm was brewing. Just High Heaven Palace and Azure Sun Temple alone had suffered such a fate, so one could only imagine how the other Sects would be.
Yang Kai didn’t have time to drag his sixth stem army out, so after a moment of contemplation, he ordered, “All those who are at the Emperor Realm and above and have the strength to fight, follow me to the Branch Sect.” Turning to the Lian Sisters, he said, “I’ll have to trouble the two of you to go to the Azure Sun Temple to hold the line, I’ll be there soon.”
The Lian Sisters naturally had no objections to this. Now that Chang Tian was gone, they could only follow Yang Kai’s lead.
Yang Kai had the Space Spirit Bead he had used to contact Gao Xueting, so he immediately used the power of the Space Spirit Bead to send the Lian Sisters to Gao Xueting’s side. He then stored the Emperor Realm masters he had gathered into the Mysterious Boundary Bead, and with a flash, he arrived at the Space Array.
Stepping onto the Spirit Array, the Space Laws fluctuated and he appeared in the Southern Domain Branch Sect.
High Heaven Palace had a hundred thousand disciples, there were simply too many of them. Even though High Heaven Palace occupied a large area, it was still somewhat difficult to settle down, so half of the disciples has been settled on the branch sect.
However, the situation of the Branch Sect was the same as before. They had no masters guarding them and could only rely on the Sect Protecting Spirit Array to defend themselves.
When Yang Kai arrived at the Sect Branch, the Sect Protection Array was rumbling non-stop, but it was still quite sturdy and showed no signs of damage. It was mainly because Yang Kai had arrived so quickly that he had arrived not long after the Demon Race’s attack. Otherwise, with the Sect Branch’s Great Array, it would not have been able to last long.
The disciples of the Branch Sect were in a good state of mind. Although they were panicking, at this moment, some of the more powerful Senior Brothers and Sisters were arranging their troops to wait for the Great Array to break before they went to meet the enemy.
When Yang Kai appeared at the Space Array, none of them were aware of it.
Time was of the essence, so Yang Kai didn’t have time to say anything to the Branch Sect disciples. In a flash, he left the Sect’s Great Array and stood in the middle of the Demon Race’s army. With a sweep of his Divine Sense, he was able to roughly understand the situation of this Demon Race army.
There weren’t many of them, but there were still quite a few. There were about a hundred thousand of them, and without a Half-Saint, the strongest of them was only a High-Rank Demon King.
With a loud whistling sound, Wind Chaser appeared and Yang Kai mounted his mount. With a wave of his hand, hundreds of Emperor Realm and several Half Saints appeared beside him.
Extending his hand, Yang Kai summoned the Million Sword and pointed them forward, shouting, “Kill!”
The group of Emperor Realm masters grinned maliciously as they spread out in groups of three or five, forming a triangle as they rushed towards the Demon Race army.
Like a pack of wolves charging into a sheep pen, wherever these masters passed, the Demon Race army was powerless to resist. Even if there were Demon Kings who could resist for a moment, they would not be able to escape the fate of being killed.
Although Yang Kai didn’t bring many people with him this time, all of them were at least at the Emperor Realm. Among them were Bai Zhuo, his Embodiment, and Zhui Feng, three of the Demon Race’s Half-Saints, as well as Zhu Qing, Zhu Lie, and Fu Ling. How could the Demon Race be a match for them?
In the midst of the army, Wind Chaser rushed forward, and regardless of whether it was the Demon Chief Commander or the Demon King, both of them had been reduced to dust. Riding on Wind Chaser's back, Yang Kai’s Million Sword flew out, slicing apart the Demon Race’s corpses and breaking their arms and legs.
It wasn’t until the Demon Race’s army scattered that the disciples hiding in the Great Array reacted and realized that reinforcements had arrived. Looking back, the figure riding the back of a Divine Beast was none other than their Palace Master.
Shouts of joy filled the air as the Great Array opened and the Branch Sect disciples rushed out in pursuit.
To be honest, the strength of the disciples who remained in the Branch Sect was somewhat lacking. After all, the slightly more promising ones had all been recruited by Yang Kai into the Sixth Stem Army, so the ones who remained were naturally those with lower cultivation.
With such a group of people, even a random Demon King would be able to annihilate all of them, but they still rushed out and chased after the Demon Race with great enthusiasm. However, the Demon Race that was being chased didn’t even turn around as they fled.
The Branch Sect’s disciples still had some sense and knew that their own strength was insufficient, so if they were to chase too far, they would definitely suffer, so they only chased for a few dozen kilometers before returning to their headquarters. When they saw Yang Kai, they all bowed.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “When the Demonic Qi on the dead Demon Race’s body has completely dissipated, we’ll clean up the battlefield. Otherwise, there will be a danger of becoming devil.”
Many disciples agreed.
Yang Kai waved his hand and said, “All of you should return. If there are any more invaders, remember to send a message to the Chief Manager.”
After tidying up a bit, he stored the people he had brought back into the Mysterious Small World, and the Space Spirit Bead flashed as he once again teleported away.
When he reappeared, he was already inside the Divine Temple. Beside him was a beautiful figure holding a long sword, fighting a Demon King.
Yang Kai had teleported here through the Space Spirit Bead he had contacted with Gao Xueting, so the place he had appeared was naturally next to her.
The long sword in Gao Xueting’s hand flew through the air as Sword Qi filled the air. A round mirror hung above her head, its surface shining like a bright sun. From this mirror, a number of flames transformed into fierce fire snakes that shot towards the Demon King.
Yang Kai could tell at a glance that this was Gao Xueting’s Origin Emperor Treasure, the Ardent Sun Mirror. This mirror’s power was extraordinary, and Yang Kai had only seen it a few times.
Gao Xueting’s opponent was a High-Rank Demon King with a profound cultivation. Logically speaking, his strength should be stronger than Gao Xueting’s, but firstly, Gao Xueting’s Emperor Treasure was extraordinary, and secondly, this was the Star Boundary. The subtle differences in the laws of Heaven and Earth made it difficult for the invading Demon Race to adapt, so even if their strength was slightly stronger, at this moment, they were still flustered by Gao Xueting’s attacks. Even if their lives weren’t in danger, they were still in a miserable state.
Just as the Demon King was about to use his Secret Technique, he suddenly saw a white-haired young man riding a Divine Beast.
The white-haired young man was nothing special, but the strange beast’s aura was that of a Half-Saint.
At such a close distance and with such a strange appearance, this High-Rank Demon King trembled in fear, his mind in chaos.
When Wind Chaser glanced at him again, the Demon Qi in his body seemed to have become somewhat sluggish.
Seeing this, how could Gao Xueting miss such a good opportunity? On top of the Ardent Sun Mirror, the Ardent Sun True Fire shot out, burning the Demon King until he was unable to hold on. With great difficulty, he managed to resist the power of the flames, and in his vision, a long sword was already flying towards him.
He felt a sharp pain in his chest as the sword entered his body.
As she circulated her Emperor Qi, her slender hand shook and the Demon King in front of her was crushed into pieces.
Gao Xueting put away her sword and gently waved it, causing the Demon Blood on it to spill out as she swept her eyes over Yang Kai, “Quite impressive!”
Yang Kai grinned, “Senior Sister is too kind.” With a serious expression, he asked, “How is the situation?”
Gao Xueting let out a sigh of relief, “Good, it’s all thanks to your two Half Saints' help, otherwise the Divine Temple would have been in big trouble.”
Yang Kai looked around and saw that the Azure Sun Temple was filled with flames of war, and the Demon Race had already invaded. In other words, the Azure Sun Temple’s Sect Protection Array had been broken.
