He had long heard that Yang Kai had obtained a great opportunity when he entered the Demon Territory, and after returning, his cultivation had reached the level of a High-Rank Demon King, comparable to a Half-Saint. Cang Mo still couldn’t believe it. In his opinion, Yang Kai’s aptitude was indeed extraordinary, but with his cultivation, how could he possibly cross this great chasm? Even if Yang Kai had killed a Half-Saint before, it was still a result of cooperation.
However, it was only now that Cang Mo realized the rumors were true.
This little bastard’s strength was actually comparable to a Half-Saint. As this spear stabbed towards him, Cang Mo felt as if a mountain was pressing down on him, making it difficult for him to breathe.
In a hurry, he raised his hand and struck out.
With a loud bang, Cang Mo let out a muffled groan and quickly retreated, but Yang Kai’s body only swayed a few times before stabilizing. This result was not because Yang Kai’s strength was much stronger than Cang Mo’s, but rather because he had the advantage of the Azure Dragon Spear, and also because Yang Kai had attacked in anger and Cang Mo had hastily blocked.
shuā shuā shuā…
The four Demon Race Half-Saints, under Jia Long’s leadership, had already caught up to Yang Kai and Cang Mo. Seemingly having reached a consensus, they split up and surrounded Yang Kai and Cang Mo, staring towards the center of the stage.
Today’s situation was not something that could be easily seen. Compared to killing the Star Boundary's Pseudo Emperors, the Half Saints were undoubtedly more interested in seeing the humans kill each other.
“Damn it!” Cang Mo grit his teeth and roared as he glanced around, his eyes filled with fear and dread. When he looked at Yang Kai again, his eyes filled with hatred, “Yang Kai, what are you doing?”
Yang Kai lowered his eyes, his long hair hanging over his forehead, casting a thick shadow as he said, “The one who should die is you, Old Dog Cang Mo!”
Cang Mo grit his teeth and said, “What does harming others and harming oneself have to do with you?”
“If your heart is not at peace, your Dao is not at peace!” Yang Kai slowly raised his Azure Dragon Spear, pointed it towards Cang Mo, and coldly declared, “Today, this place will be your burial ground!”
“Nonsense, we’ll talk about it after you survive!” Cang Mo’s face twitched, his heart filled with hatred. In order to give him a chance to survive, he had thrown his companions behind him to act as a shield. If he were to do it again, he would still choose to do so, but he had never imagined that Yang Kai’s personality would be so unyielding. Knowing that the four Demon Race Half-Saints were chasing after him, not only did he not try to escape, he even tried to stop him. This was simply harming others without benefiting himself. Did he not know what the consequences of being surrounded by those Half-Saints would be?
“Don’t worry, I will definitely live longer than you,” Yang Kai’s expression was cold and stern, his spear not moving as he turned his head to the side and said, “Jia Long, how about we make a deal?”
Jia Long’s eyes were filled with a mocking smile as he lightly said, “Do you think… in this current situation, you have the qualifications to discuss anything with this King?” After pausing for a moment, he let out a hearty laugh, “Fine, since you’ve allowed this King to see such a good show, if you have any last words, you should quickly tell me. If you can make this King happy, it’s not impossible to satisfy you.”
He looked like he was confident he could defeat Yang Kai, not because he was arrogant, but because the advantage he had was too obvious. The auras of the four Half-Saints were locked onto Yang Kai, and if he made any sudden movements, he would immediately suffer a violent storm. At that time, whether or not he could use his strange Space Secret Technique would be another matter.
Yang Kai’s expression remained unchanged, as calm as a volcano that had been dormant for many years, “I’m going to kill this scum, you wait here. After I kill him, if you have any other methods, I’ll take them all.”
As soon as these words came out, Cang Mo’s face became ashen, while the expressions of the four Demon Race Half-Saints all became gloomy. Jia Long even rubbed his chin, a thoughtful look appearing on his face, “Why?”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “If I fight him, no matter who wins or loses in the end, the remaining one will be an arrow at the end of its flight. When the four of you attack together, who will be able to resist? This will only bring you benefits and no harm, right?”
Hearing this, Cang Mo’s heart sank as he cried out, “Yang Kai, you’re crazy!”
If Jia Long and the others had really acted according to Yang Kai’s instructions, then he would definitely have met with disaster today. Whether Yang Kai killed him or he killed him, it would be impossible for him to leave this place alive. His original plan was now completely useless, causing him to panic and shiver.
Secretly cursing Yang Kai’s viciousness, in order to deal with him, he had even made such a proposal. Jia Long and the others probably couldn’t refuse even if they wanted to.
Sure enough, Jia Long pondered for a moment before nodding, “What you say makes sense.” Suddenly, a sinister grin appeared on his face, “But if this King wants something, he will take it himself!”
In the blink of an eye, a thick aura of Corpse Qi surged out and from it, several figures appeared. These were all refined corpses that Jia Long had refined. These refined corpses were basically all High-Rank Demon Kings, and there were even three Half-Saint Demon Race corpses among them, obviously the result of Jia Long’s lifetime collection.
The moment Jia Long made his move, Bone Demon Half-Saint also opened his mouth and spat out a ball of dark green Nether Ghost Flames, which transformed into a dark green flame cloud that flew towards Yang Kai.
The Feather Demon nocked an arrow, pulled the bowstring, and the Succubus smiled, her Divine Soul attack invisible and formless.
In the blink of an eye, the four Demon Race Half-Saints attacked Yang Kai and Cang Mo with their respective Divine Abilities. In that instant, the world changed color and the World Energy in the Profound Heaven Temple became violent.
With a dragon roar, Yang Kai’s golden dragon head flashed and his body expanded, transforming into a hundred zhang long dragon. The Azure Dragon Spear swept out and the many refined corpses that were pouncing towards him all exploded. Even the boundless Corpse Qi was swept away. Without stopping, Yang Kai swung his spear and slashed down the Feather Demon Arrow, his hand reaching out and using a Secret Technique to collapse the world, swallowing the dark green ghost flames.
With his strength alone, he was able to fight three Half-Saints at the same time. Although he was able to neutralize their attacks at the first moment, Yang Kai’s blood was still boiling as a sweet taste filled his throat.
However, he didn’t hesitate in the slightest. With a light tap of his foot, he leapt towards Cang Mo and roared, “Die!”
Yang Kai was being taken care of by the three Demon Race Half-Saints, while Cang Mo’s situation was much better. With four Half-Saints attacking, only the Succubus’ Divine Soul attacks were directed at him.
Cang Mo’s eyes went blank for a moment, but in that instant, Yang Kai had already rushed forward with his spear, his cold killing intent causing his skin to turn cold as he roared angrily, “Since you don’t want me to have a good time, don’t even think about it!”
With a loud bang, a violent Emperor Qi swept out and Cang Mo’s entire body seemed to swell, some strange patterns appearing on his exposed skin as he stretched out his hand and grabbed at the air. A long sword appeared in his hand and he slashed it down, sending out a stream of sword light.
A loud bang rang out as energy wildly surged, causing the dry earth to distort and the four poles to collapse.
Yang Kai’s massive body was pushed back more than a dozen steps, and Cang Mo’s body also tumbled backwards.
Before Yang Kai could even catch his breath, Jia Long and the other Half-Saints attacked again.
Shua, shua, shua. Three figures appeared beside Yang Kai, and a cold Law filled the air, colliding with the boundless Corpse Qi. Bing Yun formed a hand seal with a solemn expression.
Three flame rings flew out from Yang Yan's wrist and transformed into three huge flame rings that shot towards the Bone Demon.
Gan Li’s figure flickered as he rushed towards the Feather Demon, instantly engaging him in battle.
“You…” Cang Mo, who had been sent flying backwards, stared at the three figures that had suddenly appeared, his expression extremely interesting.
He instantly understood how Yang Yan’s group of three had appeared; they had obviously been hiding in Yang Kai’s Mysterious Small World.
“Such strength, such an ambush…” Cang Mo nearly ground his teeth. If he had known that Yang Kai was hiding three more ambushers, he wouldn’t have used Feng as a shield. As long as they could join forces with Yang Kai, they would have six Pseudo Emperors on their side. No matter how strong Jia Long was, the disadvantage in numbers was enough to make him surrender.
However, at that time, he had only seen Yang Kai alone, and he had also been fleeing. How could he have thought so much at the moment of life and death? He had only thought about using Yang Kai to attract the attention of the Demon Race so that he could escape.
He didn’t know if his previous actions had been seen by Yang Yan and the others, but if they had, he would likely have no place in the Star Boundary in the future.
If Yang Kai was the only one who saw this, he wouldn’t be afraid. With no witnesses, no matter what he said, he wouldn’t admit that he had done such a thing. Even if the Demon Race revealed anything, it would only be regarded as sowing discord.
“You treacherous little bastard!” Cang Mo’s heart was filled with grief and indignation, secretly blaming Yang Kai for not displaying all of his strength at the start, causing him to make such a choice because he couldn’t see any hope.
But now, Yang Yan and the others had managed to entangle three Demon Race Half-Saints while the Succubus Demon was still attacking him, Yang Kai was also restraining him. A great sense of crisis instantly enveloped Cang Mo. In this life, he had only felt this way when he was oppressed by Qiong Qi.
This time, the odds were really against him…
At this moment, a change occurred.
A loud buzzing sound rang out, causing the entire Profound Heaven Temple to tremble violently. Half-Saint, Pseudo Emperor, everyone present, no matter who they were, couldn’t maintain their balance for a moment and their bodies began to sway. The rich Spiritual Qi of the world quickly converged in one direction, causing a violent wave of energy to sweep across the ground and trees.
Everyone’s expressions changed as they all stopped and looked around vigilantly. Such an unforeseen event had obviously happened.
The rumbling continued for a long time.
“This is…” Cang Mo’s eyes bulged as he looked towards a certain direction, a look of ecstasy appearing on his face as he shouted, “Void Heavenly Cauldron!”
In the direction he was looking, a huge square cauldron suddenly appeared. This giant cauldron was engraved with countless mysterious patterns that flickered and flowed continuously. Each of these patterns seemed to conform to the principles of the Great Dao, causing everyone who saw this giant cauldron to become absent-minded.
The giant cauldron was not a physical object, but rather a phantom image, but it was incredibly solid. As the World's Energy in the Profound Heaven Temple poured into it, the giant cauldron grew larger, as if it was trying to contain the entire Profound Heaven Temple.
