The axe was originally only the size of an ordinary axe, but when it was summoned, it suddenly expanded and released a terrifying Demonic Qi, transforming into a huge axe shadow that slashed towards Yang Kai.
The power of this axe cleaved a mountain in front of him.
Yang Kai bore the brunt of this attack and gripped the Azure Dragon Spear in his hand before swinging it towards the axe.
Amidst the cries, there seemed to be the roar of a dragon. With a loud bang, both Yang Kai and the Half-Saint involuntarily staggered back several steps.
The Half-Saint cultivator’s eyes widened in shock. Although he had already received Xue Li’s warning and knew that Yang Kai couldn’t be underestimated, he still couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw Yang Kai’s spear break his attack.
This guy really did have the strength of a Half-Saint! His eyes involuntarily fell on the Azure Dragon Spear, his pupils narrowing slightly as Xue Li and the others warned him about this strange spear. It was said that this spear’s power was extremely great, and now it seemed that Yang Kai’s cultivation as a high rank Demon King was able to resist his attack head on, perhaps because of this spear’s power.
Not only did Yang Kai’s strength not cause him to retreat, it instead stimulated his bloodthirst and pride, causing him to shout, “Again!”
The axe was raised high in the air as Demonic Qi surged from his body and poured into the Demon Artifact before slashing down again.
“Scram!” Yang Kai shouted. He had come here to investigate the situation, so how could he have the time to engage in a meaningless battle with this Half-Saint? His figure flashed as he pounced towards the Half-Saint, his Azure Dragon Spear filling the sky as he stabbed towards the Half-Saint, completely ignoring the axe’s shadow.
The Half-Saint was shocked.
The fact that Yang Kai was so desperate right from the start made him feel somewhat helpless. If he didn’t dodge, both sides would definitely suffer heavy losses. Even if he couldn’t kill Yang Kai with a single swing of his axe, if he were to be stabbed by Yang Kai, he would definitely suffer a miserable fate.
It was said that this guy had comprehended a profound mystery called Martial Dao True Intent. Once he was injured by it, the Martial Dao True Intent would corrode his flesh and blood, causing him to suffer a fate worse than death. Even a Half-Saint would be helpless against it, only a Demon Saint would have the ability to expel it.
During the last battle at Star Soul Palace, a Blood Demon comrade had been injured by this Martial Dao True Intent, and in the end, it was Sir Xue Li who had managed to save his life. As for the Demon Kings who had been injured by Yang Kai, it was said that they had all been abandoned by Sir Xue Li and killed on the spot. Even if Sir Xue Li could resolve this Martial Dao True Intent, it would still take a great deal of effort.
Wasting the energy of a Demon Saint on some Demon Kings was obviously not worth it, so they all died.
As these thoughts flashed through his mind, the Demon Race Half-Saint made a prompt decision to retreat. At the same time, he summoned his Demon Artifact Axe back and formed a protective barrier in front of him.
With a series of clanging sounds, two figures rushed into the Demon Land.
The Demon Race Half-Saint’s expression became even more shocked. The force coming from the spear actually made him feel like he couldn’t withstand it, and his eyes couldn’t help widening. Was this really the strength of a human? He had heard that Yang Kai could transform into a hundred zhang long dragon body, now it seemed it was all true!
How could the one fighting him be an ordinary human? He was clearly a hundred zhang long dragon! It was only natural for him to possess such strength.
What shocked him even more was the strange aura that came from the Azure Dragon Spear. With his experience and knowledge, he was actually unable to distinguish what this aura was. This aura was extremely profound and seemed to contain a great mystery, making it difficult to understand. He could only vaguely guess that this was the Martial Dao True Intent that the Demon Saints spoke of.
Feeling even more frightened, he made up his mind to never allow himself to be injured by this Martial Dao True Intent.
Last time, the Demon Saint was willing to resolve the Martial Dao True Intent of a Blood Demon Half-Saint because the situation wasn’t too bad. Now that the strength of the two Dragon Race Elders had soared, the three Demon Saints had to maintain their peak state to deal with their enemies. If he were to be injured this time, he wouldn’t be so lucky as to allow the Demon Saints to resolve the situation. At that time, his live would depend on his own luck.
Feeling somewhat apprehensive, this Half-Saint from the Demon Race was unable to display his full strength and was forced to retreat a thousand kilometers from Yang Kai.
From the depths of the Demon Cave, several figures rushed out one after another, each of them exuding a Half-Saint aura.
Obviously, they had seen their companion’s sorry state and had come to support him.
However, before they could approach, they heard a furious roar.
Golden light flashed as Yang Kai’s figure expanded dramatically, transforming into a hundred zhang tall burly figure that stood between the heavens and earth along with the Azure Dragon Spear.
A terrifying pressure suddenly swept out, causing the few Half-Saints who had rushed over to stop in their tracks.
The hundred zhang long dragon swung its hundred zhang long spear, causing the world to tremble.
None of the Half-Saints dared to face this spear head-on, and when they saw it coming towards them, all of their expressions changed drastically and they quickly retreated, but the Half-Saint who was fighting with Yang Kai was unable to avoid it and could only desperately summon the power of his Demon Artifact, transforming it into a giant axe to meet it head-on.
His figure flew backwards as he vomited blood in mid-air. The Demon Artifact Axe in his hand dimmed, obviously losing its spirituality. After regaining his balance, his face was filled with unwillingness and anger.
If Yang Kai really was a Half-Saint, it would have been one thing, but to force him to retreat like this without being able to fight back, and Yang Kai’s current cultivation was only at the High-Rank Demon King Realm, making him appear incompetent. After all, he was still a Half-Saint, so when had he ever felt so aggrieved?
Fortunately, although his five viscera and six bowels had been shaken and he had suffered some minor injuries, he had not been injured by the rumoured Martial Dao True Intent.
Turning his head to look at his fellow comrades, his ugly expression finally calmed down. At this moment, his fellow comrades all wore looks of dread, none of them daring to step forward, instead diluting his embarrassment.
Yang Kai grabbed his spear and stood tall on the ground like a small mountain, sweeping his eyes over the crowd. His pair of pale golden dragon eyes made it difficult for anyone to look straight at him as he shouted in a thunderous voice, “If you want to fight, then come! If you don’t want to fight, then scram!”
When the Half-Saint heard this, their noses nearly went crooked from anger.
This was the Demon Cave, the place where the Demon Race’s army was stationed. Yang Kai had barged into this place alone, yet he still dared to speak so arrogantly! If it was an ordinary person, even if it was a Pseudo Emperor who came here, they would not be able to tolerate it and would definitely rush forward to teach him a lesson.
But he was Yang Kai.
Not to mention that Yang Kai had just displayed strength comparable to a Half-Saint, Yang Kai was even proficient in the Space Laws, who could possibly stop him? In order to fight him, they had to be careful not to be injured by his Martial Dao True Intent…
Ordinary injuries were nothing to them, but injuries that even Demon Saints found difficult to deal with, no one dared to try. Currently, only the Demon Saints could restrain him, but at this critical juncture, how could these Demon Saints easily act?
Therefore, even though their faces were ashen, the Half-Saints still stood in place and stared coldly at Yang Kai.
Yang Kai coldly snorted but didn’t try to provoke them again. He had come here only to inquire about the situation. The situation in the Demon Cave in the North Region was exactly the same as the situation in the East Region, but he still didn’t know why such a great change had occurred.
Since he couldn’t see clearly outside the Demon Cave, he decided to go deeper inside.
If that wasn’t the case, why would Yang Kai risk his life alone?
According to the intelligence, Xue Li and the others were still in the Star Soul Palace of the Southern Domain, seemingly treating it as their headquarters. It was unknown if they were intentionally humiliating the Star Boundary. Although they could arrive here quickly, as long as there were any abnormalities, Yang Kai would immediately flee, naturally not giving Xue Li and the others a chance to attack.
Standing next to the Azure Dragon Spear, it was like a giant pillar that reached into the sky, as if it had sensed Yang Kai’s intentions. A dragon roar came from the spear, and on top of it, the figure of an Azure Dragon appeared, coiling around the spear, its huge dragon head raised high, overlooking the world and observing its surroundings.
Yang Kai closed his eyes, relaxed, and released his Divine Sense.
If it were anyone else, they would definitely not dare to act in such a manner in the Demon Land. Inside the Demon Cave, Demonic Qi was abundant, and if one’s Divine Sense left their body, it was highly likely they would be corroded by Demonic Qi, leaving behind some kind of hidden danger.
However, he was different from ordinary people. His strength had been transformed into Demonic Qi, so how could he be afraid of the Demonic Qi in this Demon Cave?
Yang Kai’s goal was very clear, and it was the Demon Pagoda inside the Demon Cave. Since this Demon Pagoda was able to connect with one another and create a kind of Cross Domain Space Array, allowing the Demon Race to travel back and forth quickly, it was naturally able to allow one’s Divine Sense to pass through it.
With the help of this Demon Pagoda, Yang Kai was able to sweep away the fog in front of him and stand at a new height to observe the overall situation and figure out the reason for the expansion of the Demon Land.
He didn’t try to conceal his actions at all, so the few Half-Saints who were watching him closely naturally noticed.
One of the Bone Demon twisted its skull and glanced towards the Demon Pagoda, the dark green flames in its eyes flickering a few times as it spoke through its teeth, “What a clever fellow, to think of such a method.”
“Hey, should we stop him? If this continues, I’m afraid he’ll discover something.”
“How do we stop him?” The other Half Saint sneered, “Are we going to fight him?”
“It’s not impossible,” The Half-Saint who spoke revealed an eager expression, “After all, he is alone.”
“If we can’t keep him here, what’s the point? We still need to be careful not to be injured by him, you know what that Martial Dao True Intent is…”
“Since the Demon Saints have already made their move, the Star Boundary will definitely find out the reason. What’s the difference if it’s sooner or later? Let the Demon Saints handle this guy.”
“That’s right, I’ve already sent a message to the three Saint Venerable. If the Lords want to stop him, they will definitely come. If they don’t come, then we don’t need to do anything.”
After a brief exchange, the Half Saints quickly reached a consensus and decided to wait and see.
It wasn’t that they were cowards, it was just that the Martial Dao True Intent was too difficult to deal with, and no one was willing to take the risk of their lives being threatened. Without someone to take the lead, it was naturally impossible to form a group. Moreover, since the Demon Saint had made their decision, there was no need for them to take the risk.
