Just as he was about to ask Yang Kai to explain to him who this Great Demon God was, Yang Kai suddenly changed the subject and said, “Many years ago, the Demon Territory was not called the Demon Territory, it was called the Matchless World. The ones who lived there were not the Demon Race, but the Matchless World, which was similar to my Star Boundary, was ruled by the Human Race.”
“The Matchless World is vast and has a magnificent sky and earth. It is not inferior to the Star Boundary in any way, and there are even some places where it is superior. However, one day, an uninvited guest came to the Matchless World. This person’s name was Mo Sheng! Mo Sheng fought with his enemy and suffered heavy injuries, hiding in the Matchless World to heal his injuries and absorb the Matchless World Spirit’s vitality. After countless years, the Matchless World's Spirit lost all of its vitality, and the entire world was contaminated by the Demonic Attribute, turning into a Demon Land and becoming a Demon Territory. The living beings who lived in the Matchless World also gradually transformed into Demons and continued to exist until now.”
“Mo Sheng is the Great Demon God!”
“However, just as Mo Sheng was healing his injuries, another powerful master entered the Demon Territory. The two of them engaged in an earth-shattering battle, causing the Demon Territory to collapse and transform into countless continents. Mo Sheng’s body was destroyed, and the person who fought him was also killed.”
“Right now, the Demon Race has invaded the Star Boundary just to devour the Star Boundary's Spirit vitality and give Mo Sheng a chance to come back from the dead. If the Demon Race succeeds, the Star Boundary will become the second Matchless World and become just like the Demon Territory.”
The loud voice echoed throughout the hall, leaving the group of masters dumbfounded. They had never heard of such a thing before, how did Yang Kai know about the Great Demon God and Matchless World?
Seemingly seeing through their doubts, Yang Kai said solemnly, “Three years ago, when I was devouring the Demon Territory Continent, there was an ancient battlefield hidden inside one of the continents. That ancient battlefield was the place where Mo Sheng’s body was destroyed. Inside that ancient battlefield, I saw the scene of Mo Sheng fighting with another master, and after that… one of Mo Sheng’s clones came to find me. He told me all of this himself.”
“Mo Sheng’s clone?”
“The Great Demon God?”
A series of cries rang out.
Li Wuyi frowned, “Didn’t you say Mo Sheng’s body was destroyed?”
Yang Kai looked at him and said, “His physical body has indeed been destroyed, but his Soul is still intact. As long as there are enough conditions, he can make a comeback, and the Star Boundary’s Spirit is what he needs.” Pausing for a moment, Yang Kai continued, “Now that I think about it, in this invasion of the Demon Race, Mo Sheng’s figure must have been standing behind it. I’m afraid none of you know that when I entered the Demon Territory, not a single living thing was left on those continents. All the living things on those continents were killed by the Demon Race themselves just to release the Demonic Attribute from their bodies.”
“Three years ago, the Demon Race’s army suddenly went crazy and began killing each other. At that time, none of us knew the reason, but after I asked a few Demon Kings about it, I learned that there was a voice in their minds at that time, and under the control of that voice, they gradually became confused and only knew how to kill. That voice was something that no Demon Race below the Half-Saint Realm could resist.”
“At that time, the Demon Saints were confronting the Great Emperors, so it wasn’t a Demon Saint who did anything to them. Now that I think about it, the Demon Saints may not have the ability to influence the minds of so many of the Demon Race. Perhaps only that guy named Mo Sheng was able to do so. The entire Demon Territory was created by him, the Demon Race was created by him, and he was the source of all the Demons. If he had some kind of method to influence the minds of the Demon Race, it would make sense.”
“Tens of millions of Demon Race soldiers died because of this, their deaths having the same effect as those of the Demon Race who were killed in the Demon Territory. The Demonic Qi in their bodies was released as nutrients to stabilize the existence of the Demon Land, after so many years, the World Laws of the Star Boundary were unable to repair the Demon Cave’s existence. Today, after the Demon Race secretly set up their methods, they launched a large-scale attack on my Star Boundary.”
Inside the main hall, everyone was drenched in cold sweat as they listened, glancing at each other. Although they couldn’t believe Yang Kai’s words, after carefully combining them together, they found that there were no flaws in them.
Shentu Xing said bitterly, “Sir Yang, according to what you said, Great Demon God… Mo Sheng’s strength…”
“Above Demon Saint!”
A sharp intake of breath rang out. Although everyone had guessed what Yang Kai meant, after seeing Yang Kai admit this, they still found it difficult to accept.
The Demon Saint was already an existence they had to look up to, yet the Demon Race actually had a fellow whose strength was above the Demon Saint? Although his physical body had been destroyed, since his soul had not been destroyed, there was still a chance for him to be reborn. Once such an existence was resurrected, who in the Star Boundary could stop him? It was likely that they would have the end of the Matchless World and become the next Demon Territory.
A trace of worry flashed across Li Wuyi’s eyes. Now that the Demon Cave had changed and was rapidly expanding, the Star Boundary’s side was already in a state of panic. Now that Yang Kai had suddenly thrown out such shocking news, it was highly likely that it would affect their morale. But thinking about it, the situation had already reached this point, so even if Yang Kai didn’t say anything, how could their morale be good?
After saying this, he could at least let everyone know who the enemy they had to face was. Perhaps it was because of this consideration that he had revealed these secrets.
“Everyone doesn’t need to worry too much. Although Great Demon God’s strength is far above Demon Saint’s, his physical body has already been destroyed, so even if some of his clones are stirring up trouble now, I’m afraid they won’t have even a hundredth of their peak strength. Otherwise, they would have long since appeared, why would they need to hide?”
In the Mysterious Small World, if Mo Sheng’s clone hadn’t been so confident that he could snatch Yang Kai’s Mysterious Small World, he probably wouldn’t have come out on his own. Yang Kai wouldn’t have been able to obtain such information.
Pan Gengnian asked, “Sir Yang, may I ask who was the one who destroyed Mo Sheng’s body?”
Although the Great Demon God was powerful, there were still precedents of him being killed, so everyone was quite curious about the master who had killed him.
Yang Kai glanced at him and pondered for a moment before replying, “I’m sure all of you are familiar with that person’s title. The person who destroyed Mo Sheng’s body in the past was the Passing of Time Great Emperor!”
The group of masters immediately raised their eyebrows, all of them showing expressions of pride. Mo Sheng’s strength was above that of a Demon Saint, so if the Passing of Time Great Emperor could destroy his physical body, didn’t that mean his cultivation was on par with the Passing of Time Great Emperor?
Someone frowned and said, “Sir Yang, you just said that after that battle, Mo Sheng’s body was destroyed, and the person who fought with him was destroyed in body and soul, could it be…”
Yang Kai nodded, “Yes, the Passing of Time Great Emperor died at the hands of another.”
Another burst of gasps rang out. In the long history of the Star Boundary, the Passing of Time Great Emperor was almost a legend. Since ancient times, the Star Boundary had produced many Great Emperors, but only a few of them had remained famous until now. Wu Kuang could be considered one, and the Passing of Time Great Emperor could be considered one.
Although everyone knew that the Passing of Time Great Emperor was no longer alive, no one knew how he had died. Everyone thought he had died in the Passing of Time Temple, but now they knew that the Passing of Time Great Emperor had been killed in battle.
Li Wuyi said thoughtfully, “It seems that the disappearance of the Great Emperors is related to Mo Sheng.” Originally, he had been wondering why the Great Emperors had gone missing for no reason. Although there were a similar number of Demon Saints who had gone missing, such a big move was definitely not something that could be accomplished by ordinary means, so it was only natural that Mo Sheng was involved.
Yang Kai said, “I was just about to discuss this matter with everyone, I went to the Demon Cave to investigate and saw the Great Emperors.”
After a while, many people stood up and some even spilled tea on the table.
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “It’s not what everyone thinks. The Great Emperors aren’t in the Star Boundary or the Demon Territory, their location is quite vague. I can only see a few images, but I can’t pinpoint their exact location.”
Previously, when his mind was immersed in the Demon Cave and his Divine Sense expanded, he didn’t know if it was a coincidence or if it was inevitable, but suddenly, a series of blurry images flashed across his mind, all of which contained the figures of many Great Emperors.
“How are the Great Emperors doing now?” Li Wuyi asked. With the current situation in the Star Boundary, if the Great Emperors could return, it would definitely be much better. Relying on just the two Dragon Clan Elders was a bit too weak, even if their strength had increased, it was still not enough.
Yang Kai slowly shook his head, “Not too good, the current upheaval in the Star Boundary is also related to them. They seem to have been suppressed by the Demon Saints in some strange place. There are many great arrays set up there, and the Demon Saints are currently refining the World Wills of the Great Emperors.”
The Demon Race had attempted this more than twenty years ago.
Their goal was the dead Bright Moon Great Emperor.
Since the Bright Moon Great Emperor had fallen into the Eternal Heaven Continent, the Demon Saints had sacrificed all the living beings in the Eternal Heaven Continent and even laid down the Twelve Great Demon Array in order to refine the Bright Moon so that the Demon Territory could devour a portion of the World Will in his body. If the Demon Race were to succeed in the past, the World Will of the Star Boundary would forever be missing a piece. At that time, the impact it would have on the Star Boundary’s Heavenly Law would be difficult to estimate, and perhaps it would lead to the Star Boundary’s Heavenly Law being incomplete, the World Law being broken, and the World Bottle’s capacity shrinking.
On the other hand, the Demon Territory would have another Demon Saint!
However, in the past, the Demon Race had failed, and before dying, Ming Yue had helped Yang Kai and transferred his World Will to him.
After so many years, something similar happened again, and this time it was even larger than before. The seven Great Emperors were trapped in that strange space and formation, as if they were in a furnace, the World Will in their bodies constantly being refined.
The methods of the Demon Race had been secretly arranged a few years ago, and the reason they had waited until today was because they needed to refine it.
The World Wills of the Great Emperors were equivalent to the Star Boundary’s self-protection mechanism. Without refining these World Wills, the Demon Land would not be able to rapidly expand outward, and the rate at which the Demon Land was expanding was almost equivalent to the rate at which the World Wills of the Great Emperors were being refined. Once they were completely refined, the entire Star Boundary would be in danger.
