Unfortunately, the Demon Race’s Half-Saints seemed to have taken precautions and had gathered together without separating. The two sides Half-Saint masters once again engaged in a fierce battle, and it ends with both side getting injured.
Two days later, Yang Kai was ambushed in his Sixth Stem Army's Army Commander’s tent. The newcomer was a Shadow Demon Half-Saint who had snuck into the Sixth Stem Army alone and attacked.
If it weren’t for the fact that Yang Kai’s Soul cultivation was now extraordinary, it was likely he would have ended up in a tragic state. Even so, Yang Kai was still covered in cold sweat. In the past, he only knew that Shadow Demon Race possessed extraordinary talent and were proficient in the art of concealment and assassination, and that a Half-Saint amongst Shadow Demons was one of the best. But even so, it was only when he personally encountered such a situation that he had a clear and profound understanding of it.
The sneak attack and assassination of a Shadow Demon Half-Saint was simply impossible to guard against, and even Yang Kai didn’t notice it, let alone the others. Fortunately, the moment the other party attacked, Yang Kai was able to avoid it with Nihility.
After the Shadow Demon Half-Saint’s attack missed, he immediately fled. Yang Kai had used his Space Laws to freeze space, but he was still unable to capture him. By the time Bai Ya, Embodiment and the others heard the commotion and rushed over, how could there be a traces of the enemy?
In a frontal collision, two sneak attacks, five days, and three confrontations, Yang Kai and Bing Yun realized that what lay in front of them was a piece of bone that was difficult to chew. With just the strength they currently possessed, it would be difficult to eat up these three million Demon Race soldiers.
Standing alone on this solitary mountain, the clouds and mist rose as Yang Kai and Bing Yun stood side by side, gazing at Vast Wave City a thousand kilometers away.
Even though they were thousands of kilometers away, even though more than a month had passed, the residual shockwaves from the battle between the Great Emperor and the Demon Saint were still clearly visible. Above the Demon Land, under the black dot, the Great Emperor’s power circulated and the Demon Saint’s Demonic Qi raged, transforming into two dazzling rays of light that entangled with each other.
How many years had it been since an expert of this level had fought in this world? The remaining battlefield was definitely a Holy Land for comprehending the Great Dao of Heaven and Earth. If someone could gain enlightenment from the confrontation of these two forces, their gains would definitely be great, allowing their cultivation to advance by leaps and bounds. However, now that the Demon Race had taken control of this place, who could survive here?
On the other hand, the Demon Race had many Demon King Realm masters and above.
“Senior, is there any news?” Yang Kai narrowed his eyes and asked.
Bing Yun sighed, “None of them can move freely, they all have their own enemies to deal with.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai nodded, having already expected this result.
The two armies had clashed with the Demon Race three times, but neither of them was able to do anything to the other, so Bing Yun was wondering if she could ask the other armies in the North Region to come over and help her. Everyone would work together to pull out this nail in front of them and then cut down the demons in the other Demon Land.
But now, all the armies in the Star Boundary were busy fighting the Demon Race, so who could come to support them? Li Wuyi had received countless requests for reinforcements, so he had no way to send more people, so he could only let the various Army Commanders think of a way to resolve this issue.
Currently, there are 108 Demon Cave in the Star Boundary four regions, there were Demon Race armies stationed in every one of them. Although many of the Demon Race in the Demon Caves had been exterminated over the past month, the Demon Land was still left behind and even the World Laws of the Star Boundary were unable to repair it. Some of the Demon Race in the Demon Caves had already evacuated before the arrival of the Star Boundary’s army and had gathered in another larger Demon Cave, causing the aggressive Star Boundary army to miss the chance.
Most Demon Caves were easy to deal with, after all, Demon Territory has a limited number of Half Saints, and not every Demon Cave had a Half Saint guarding it. For example, where Water Cloud Sect was located, without a Half-Saint cultivator, Yang Kai was able to wreak havoc on his own.
However, there were some Demon Caves that had Half Saint presiding over them that were more difficult to deal with. Among them, there were ten Demon Caves with more than one Half Saints in it!
The Demon Race attached great importance to these ten locations, each of which had at least four or five Half Saints.
The Vast Wave City in front of them was one of them! The ten Demon Caves were located at the place where the black dots first appeared in the Star Boundary, where the seven Great Emperors, including Yu Rumeng, and the other Demon Saints had disappeared.
Vast Wave City alone was enough to hold back the Sixth Stem Army and Bing Chen’s army, making it impossible for these two great armies to be distracted. The situation in the other nine places was probably the same.
Ten Demon Caves at the very least made it so that the other thirty Star Boundary legions didn’t dare act rashly and could only divide their forces to defend against the Demon Race.
At this point, anyone could see that these ten Demon Caves were extremely important to the Demon Race. The other Demon Caves and Demon Land could be ignored, but these ten had to be conquered. As long as they could occupy these ten places, no matter what kind of schemes the Demon Race had, it would be difficult to implement.
But how difficult would it be to defeat them? With the current situation of the Star Boundary's various armies, it was no different from a fool’s dream.
These ten Demon Caves were also scattered across the four regions of Star Boundary, three in the North, three in the South, and two in the East and West!
“Gathering powerhouses in one place and achieving success in one fell swoop is not necessarily a good idea,” Yang Kai said after a moment of thought.
Bing Yun nodded and said, “I’ve also thought about what you said. We have the Space Spirit Bead and the World Bead, so our mobility is far greater than the Demon Race’s. If we can gather ten Pseudo Emperor masters, we may be able to eat this piece of fat meat in front of us. But if they leave, what will happen to their army? The Demon Race will definitely not let go of this opportunity, and without a Pseudo Emperor, their army will definitely suffer heavy casualties. In this way, the gains will not make up for the losses. It’s not impossible to bring their army into the World Bead, but this means that they will completely give up their guard against certain Demon Caves.”
Yang Kai nodded, “Senior is right, what is the Army's General Li intention?”
Bing Yun said, “The Army's General said to wait for news from Dragon Island. If the two Elders from Dragon Island can come out, then all the problems will be solved.”
Yang Kai smiled lightly, “I’m afraid it won’t be long now.” Since returning to High Heaven Palace in the north region, Yang Kai had asked Qiong Qi to escort Yang Xiao and Yang Xue to the Dragon Island. Now that a month had passed, it was about time for the results.
The Star Boundary was in danger, and although Dragon Island was a small world, it was also dependent on the Star Boundary. No matter how the Dragon Race didn’t care about worldly affairs, in this current situation, they wouldn’t just stand by and watch.
“I hope so,” Seeing Yang Kai’s confident expression, Bing Yun also smiled lightly.
During the talk, Yang Kai suddenly stretched out his hand, and at the same time, the Space Laws fluctuated slightly. When he opened his palm again, a jade slip appeared.
Li Wuyi’s aura came from the jade slip.
Bing Yun asked, “A message from Army's General Li?”
Yang Kai nodded and immersed his Divine Sense into it, after which he smiled bitterly, “Senior, I’m afraid I won’t be able to fight alongside you.”
“What does the Army's General want you to do?” Bing Yun asked.
Yang Kai tossed the jade slip over and said, “The Army's General has ordered me to set out to the Demon Territory to search for the Great Emperor’s whereabouts while also… devouring the Demon Territory.”
Bing Yun had already finished reading the contents of the jade slip and knew that what he said was correct, so she nodded and said, “That’s a good idea. Just by looking at the number of Demon Race forces in this world, it’s clear that the Demon Race’s elites have all been deployed, and the ones left behind are probably all old and weak. If you go to the Demon Territory now, there shouldn’t be any danger…” Saying so, she smiled, “The Demon Race has invaded my Star Boundary, Army's General's method is to give them a taste of their own medicine.”
If Yang Kai went deep into the enemy’s territory to devour the Demon Domain Continent, the Demon Race would definitely not ignore him. At that time, Yang Kai alone would be able to divert a lot of attention from the Demon Race, and it would be even better if he could distract a few Half-Saints.
What’s more, according to Li Wuyi’s speculations, the Great Emperors should currently be in the Demon Territory, and their main objective for this trip was to inquire about the whereabouts of the Great Emperors and their current situation.
Yang Kai said solemnly, “After I leave, I’ll have to ask Senior to take care of my Sixth Stem Army.”
Bing Yun couldn’t help laughing, “Your Sixth Stem Army is strong and powerful, which Star Boundary’s army can compare to it? Why would you need me to look after it? On the other hand, my Bing Chen Army needs your Sixth Stem Army's protection.”
“Although Yao Si’s conduct is steady, he is still young. Now that the Great Emperor has gone missing, I’m afraid he will become confused.”
Bing Yun said solemnly, “Don’t worry, I’ll keep an eye on him.”
Yang Kai nodded in thanks.
Bing Yun asked, “When do you leave? Where?”
Yang Kai replied, “I’ll leave after making some arrangements.” Looking at the black dot a thousand kilometers away, he grinned, “Let’s go from there.”
Bing Yun followed his gaze and was stunned, secretly feeling that Yang Kai was quite bold…
“If you want to go somewhere, perhaps i can help you arrange it.”
Yang Kai exchanged a glance with her and after a moment of contemplation, he understood Bing Yun’s intentions and nodded, “I’ll listen to Senior.”
The two immediately set out and returned to the camp.
A moment later, inside his Sixth Stem Army headquarter, the Garrison's Chief of the two armies gathered together. Yang Kai told everyone about his plan to go to the Demon Territory, causing an uproar. After learning that this was Li Wuyi’s order, everyone fell silent.
Bai Ya and Bai Zhuo requested to follow him. After all, they were assigned by Yu Rumeng and Bei Limo to protect Yang Kai, so logically speaking, they should follow him wherever he went.
But now that the situation was tense, how could Yang Kai break the arms of the two great armies at such a critical moment? He immediately refused, even leaving his Embodiment behind.
After a brief discussion, everyone dispersed.
At night, the two armies joined forces and launched a fierce attack on the Vast Wave City. The Demon Race had long since taken precautions, so naturally they quickly faced the enemy.
However, what made the Demon Race somewhat puzzled was that the Human Race’s attack this time had been loud, but it's only loud thunder and small rain. A million people had attacked, but after an hour, all of them had retreated, leaving everyone puzzled.
Watching the Human Race army retreat like a receding tide, the several Half Saints from the Demon Race stood in the air, frowning. They instinctively felt that the Human Race was plotting something, but none of them noticed anything.
Suddenly, the Shadow Demon Half Saint who had snuck into the Sixth Stem Army to assassinate Yang Kai looked up at the black dot in the sky, his eyes flashing.
