Turning into a beam of light, Yang Kai flew forward at full speed, occasionally glancing back as if something dangerous was approaching.
There was indeed danger behind him as a bloody light pursued him relentlessly. Within the bloody light, two figures could be seen. No matter how Yang Kai changed directions, the bloody light was like maggots in his bones, unable to escape.
The distance between them seemed quite far, but to a Half-Saint or Pseudo Emperor, this distance was only a few breaths’ worth of time.
As time passed, the distance between the two sides grew closer.
The Space Laws fluctuated wildly as Yang Kai’s figure flickered and disappeared. When he reappeared, although he had put some distance between them, he was still unable to escape the range of the bloody light.
Amidst the bloody light, an exasperated shout rang out, “Yang Kai, you’re dead! Even if the 'Heavenly Emperor' himself came here today, he wouldn’t be able to save you! I’ll definitely capture you, suck your blood dry, and cut off your flesh!”
Only a Half-Saint from the Blood Demon Clan could use the Blood Escape Technique. The Blood Escape Technique was an extremely outstanding movement technique even in the entire Demon Territory, and its speed was extremely fast. Ordinary people would not be able to escape the pursuit of the Blood Demon.
In fact, Yang Kai’s speed alone was inferior to the Blood Demon’s Blood Escape Technique, but he had the power of Space Force, so every time he reached a dangerous threshold, he would teleport to open up a distance.
This situation had happened many times already, causing the Blood Demon who was chasing him to feel so depressed that he wanted to vomit blood.
Under normal circumstances, the Blood Demon wouldn’t have chased after Yang Kai so relentlessly. Who didn’t know that Yang Kai possessed the Space Laws and could come and go like the wind? Who didn’t know that the Martial Dao True Intent Yang Kai had comprehended was mysterious and difficult to deal with? If they wanted to deal with him, they would need at least three or four Half-Saints to kill him without giving him any chance to resist.
However, this was the Profound Heaven Temple, and it had all kinds of natural restrictions. The Blood Demon saw with his own eyes that although Yang Kai’s instantaneous movement still had some effect, he was unable to travel very far.
This gave him an opportunity to pursue.
What’s more, Yang Kai was currently injured and covered in wounds. Even his aura was somewhat unstable. Although he didn’t know what had happened to Yang Kai, it was clear that he had not been living a peaceful life.
How could he miss such a good opportunity? As long as he could kill Yang Kai here, he would be able to snatch the World Will that belonged to him, which would definitely be of great help in the upcoming Great Dao struggle.
Since ancient times, humans had died for wealth while birds died for food. With such a temptation placed in front of him, how could the Blood Demon not be tempted? What’s more, he wasn’t alone. He had companions, and in the bloody light, there were two figures.
“The longer we wait, the worse it get. We can’t wait any longer,” The voice of another Demon Race Half-Saint rang out from the bloody light.
Hearing this, the Blood Demon's face became extremely gloomy, but he also knew that what he said was true. They had spent half a day chasing each other and had caused such a huge commotion. If others were to discover this, they might even be able to benefit from it.
Blood Demon said solemnly, “The price I have to pay to use that Secret Technique is not small.”
The second Half-Saint said, “If we kill him, you'll take the credit.”
Blood Demon’s eyes lit up, “Really?”
“In the name of Great Demon God!”
Blood Demon laughed, “Good, good, good. With your words, I can rest assured.” Killing Yang Kai would allow him to seize the World's Will and seize the credit of the Demon Saints. The Demon Saints would value him and personally guide him into the mysteries of Saint Ascension. After a few words of discussion, the Blood Demon’s expression became solemn as he formed a series of hand seals. His scarlet eyes stared at the fleeing figure in front of him, flashing a cold light before he bit his tongue and spat out his blood essence.
The blood-red light, which was already quite fast to begin with, suddenly burst into a brilliant red light and accelerated, shooting forward like a bolt of lightning, rapidly closing the distance between them.
“It’s about time,” Yang Kai thought to himself as he ran forward. After half a day of chasing and fleeing, he had exhausted quite a bit of his opponent’s strength. Now that his opponent seemed to have used some kind of Secret Technique to damage his own vitality, it was time to end this.
The figure that was speeding forward suddenly came to a stop, the change from extreme movement to extreme stillness was both abrupt and natural.
“En? He actually stop!” In the bloody light, the second Half-Saint’s voice was extremely surprised, as if he hadn’t expected that Yang Kai, who had been fleeing for half a day, would suddenly turn around at this moment. Was he trying to fight to the death because he knew he had no hope of escaping?
“You’re courting death!” Blood Demon’s eyes lit up as he grinned maliciously and waved his arms, causing a bloody light to burst out and transform into a boundless sea of blood that flew towards Yang Kai.
With a dragon roar, the Azure Dragon Spear appeared and shot out, splitting the sea of blood in two. The spear wielder’s lips curled into a strange smile.
“Not good, it’s a trap!” the Blood Demon’s face paled as he instinctively felt something was wrong and quickly retreated, while his companion had already dodged to the side when Yang Kai shot out his spear.
Suddenly, three figures appeared beside Yang Kai.
As if they had come to an agreement, one of the figures flicked his wrist and sent out three streaks of fire towards the Blood Demon, while Yang Kai and the other two figures rushed towards the other Half-Saint.
“Despicable!” At this moment, the Blood Demon’s face was filled with grief and indignation, as well as a thick sense of humiliation. Yang Kai had the World Bead in his possession, so it was no secret that he could take a living person. When he and his other companion had chased after Yang Kai, they had also been on guard against this, but Yang Kai had only been running away and hadn’t summoned any helpers, so the two Demon Race Half-Saints had naturally assumed that Yang Kai was alone.
Unexpectedly, when they arrived, he actually summoned three helpers!
Although he had concealed his strength, he had still pretended to be weak and fled for half a day. From this, it could be seen just how malicious Yang Kai’s intentions were. He had clearly intended to kill the two of them here, which was why he had held back and waited until the time was right to act.
With two against four, even if they were at their peak, it would be impossible for them to be a match, not to mention that the Blood Demon had even used a Secret Technique to damage his Vitality.
Feeling a deep sense of regret, the Blood Demon only wanted to run as far away as possible. As for his companion, how could he care about him? However, one of the women threw out three streaks of fiery light, which transformed into three giant rings of fire that wrapped around him, sealing his escape route.
“Yang Yan!” Blood Demon roared. He had fought with many Pseudo Emperor masters from the Star Boundary for many years, so he basically knew what kind of masters each of them had, especially Yang Yan. Even among the Star Boundary's Pseudo Emperors, Yang Yan’s strength was second to none. The Three Flames Ring was extremely powerful and had a restraining effect. There had been a precedent of killing a Demon Race Half-Saint.
Yang Yan smiled like a fox that had just stolen a chicken, “I’ve really caught quite a few fish these past few days.”
Blood Demon’s complexion became even gloomier as he took a deep breath and his blood began to boil. In this current situation, if he couldn’t escape before his companion died, he was afraid that he would die. The only thing he could do now was risk his life.
With a fierce roar, he transformed into a bloody light and rushed towards the three fiery rings.
The smile on Yang Yan’s face disappeared, replaced by a solemn look. Although she only needed to trap this Blood Demon in order to prevent him from escaping, in this life or death crisis, the strength of a Demon Race Half-Saint was not to be underestimated. If she wanted to delay him, she would have to put in 120% effort.
On the other side, Yang Kai, Bing Yun, and Gan Li were dealing with the second Demon Race Half-Saint. This Half-Saint was a Feather Demon, and regardless of whether it was a male or a female, the Feather Demon Race had good looks. The Feather Demon Half-Saint in front of them was incredibly handsome.
However, under the combined attack of Yang Kai and the other two, his handsome face was now filled with a ferocious look. The Feather Demon Clan was most proficient in range combat, and if they were to pull away from each other, any one of them would be able to defeat a stronger opponent. When Bo Ya had killed a High-Rank Demon King with her Mid-Rank Demon King cultivation, she had relied on her innate skill.
On the other hand, Feather Demon, who had reached the Half-Saint realm, was even more incredible.
Previously, when he was pursuing Yang Kai, Yang Kai had been injured by him several times, so it could be said that a large part of this injury was attributed to this Feather Demon.
Previously, he had pretended to be weak, even when he was injured, he could only endure. Now, it was finally time to settle accounts.
In a one versus three battle, no Demon Race Half-Saint could take this blow, let alone a Feather Demon who was not proficient in close combat. After a long struggle, he was first corroded by Bing Yun's ice cold chill and his movements became sluggish, and then he was struck by Gan Li’s palm, causing him to cough up blood. Yang Kai took this opportunity to close in and thrust his spear forward. This Feather Demon was unable to avoid this blow, and his chest and abdomen were pierced through, barely managing to avoid being hit in the vitals, but the Martial Dao True Intent had already invaded his body.
There was no way out in the sky, no way out in the ground. The Feather Demon was filled with grief and indignation, unable to vent his anger.
As time passed, his injuries worsened and the Martial Dao True Intent eroded him, and the power that the Feather Demon could display became weaker.
After the time it took for an incense stick to burn, Bing Yun’s sword slashed down, and the Feather Demon was no longer able to resist. It was directly cut in half, but not a single drop of blood flowed out. In that instant, the freezing cold had frozen his entire body.
“Die!” Yang Kai’s Azure Dragon Spear smashed down, smashing the two halves of the corpse into pieces. Without stopping, Yang Kai’s body and spear became one as he rushed towards another battlefield. His movements were like flowing water, dazzling everyone who saw them.
Bing Yun and Gan Li quickly followed.
After another tea’s worth of time, Yang Yan stretched out her hand and summoned three huge rings of fire that returned to her wrist. Staring at the dried corpse below her, she sighed lightly, “How troublesome.”
Bing Yun and Gan Li also wore looks of agreement.
Although they had the absolute advantage in numbers, it was not an easy task to kill a Demon Race Half-Saint. The two Half-Saints on the other side's desperate counterattack was simply too dangerous.
There was no need to mention the injuries Yang Kai had suffered. In both life and death battles, he had always been at the forefront. Whether it was the Blood Demon or the Feather Demon’s attacks, most of them had landed on him. If it weren’t for the Dragon Race’s powerful physique, Yang Kai probably wouldn’t have had a good end.
