An hour later, the commotion on the high platform gradually subsided. Under everyone’s watchful eyes, with a loud splash, the sea of blood receded and the scene inside was revealed to everyone.
Although they were already mentally prepared, when they saw the scene on the high platform, the expressions of the many Pseudo Emperors from the Star Boundary couldn’t help dim.
At this moment, Lin Rusong was lying in a corner of the high platform. His old body had been reduced to skin and bones, and his shriveled body was covered in wounds of various sizes. His entire body was covered in blood, making him look extremely miserable.
His ruler-shaped artifact had also fallen to the side, and the originally brilliant ruler was now dull, just like Lin Rusong’s turbid eyes, with many traces of corrosion on its surface.
The shriveled body and the dim artifacts all showed how fierce the battle had been.
On the other hand, his opponent, the Blood Demon Half-Saint, was half-kneeling nearby, breathing heavily, his scarlet eyes filled with killing intent as he stared coldly at Lin Rusong, who was less than thirty meters away from him.
Judging from the Blood Demon’s situation, although he had won this battle, it was not easy.
Under normal circumstances, a fight between a Half-Saint and a Pseudo Emperor would result in both sides suffering heavy losses, unless one side had an obvious advantage in strength.
Stumbling forward, the Blood Demon stood up, cackling as he walked towards Lin Rusong.
“Old Lin!” Someone shouted.
Although Lin Rusong’s current appearance was extremely miserable, his chest was still heaving slightly, clearly indicating that he was still alive. Right now, both sides were like arrows at the end of their flight. Although the Blood Demon seemed to be in a better state, as long as Lin Rusong still had a critical strike, he might be able to turn the situation around.
However, even after the Blood Demon arrived in front of Lin Rusong, he still did not react.
The Blood Demon raised his hand and a dark red blood mist appeared around his body. Pointing towards Lin Rusong’s hand, the thick blood mist transformed into a blood snake and drilled into Lin Rusong’s seven orifices. Lin Rusong suddenly opened his eyes, revealing a look of extreme pain as he looked towards the many Pseudo Emperors from the Star Boundary, stretching out his hand as if trying to grab a life-saving straw.
Facing this pair of eyes that, although turbid, were still filled with desire, all the Pseudo Emperors in the Star Boundary felt a deep sense of helplessness, as if a volcano was brewing in their chest, ready to erupt at any moment.
Seeing an old and experienced Pseudo Emperor walk step by step towards death, no matter who it was, they couldn’t help feeling a sense of pity for him and secretly worrying about whether they would be the next ones to participate in the life and death struggle.
What made the many Pseudo Emperors even angrier was that the Blood Demon Half-Saint actually turned around at this moment and grinned at them smugly.
Yang Kai stared at him, the coldness in his eyes seemingly eternal.
Looking into Yang Kai’s eyes, the Blood Demon grinned maliciously and silently moved his mouth a few times, seemingly saying, “If you have the ability, come and kill me!”
In the end, Lin Rusong was unable to turn defeat into victory. The injuries he had suffered were not light, so he was unable to resist the Blood Demon Secret Technique.
After ten breaths of time, the last bit of vitality he had left had disappeared.
In the blink of an eye, the originally shriveled corpse had transformed into a dried corpse, and the Source Heavenly Fruit in the Void Heavenly Cauldron had indeed become a bit fuller, causing its alluring fragrance to become even stronger.
Seeing this scene, everyone knew that Jia Long was right. As long as three more people died here, the Source Heavenly Fruit would fully mature, and at that time, it would be the final battle of the Great Dao.
With a swoosh, the victorious Blood Demon on the high platform disappeared and instantly returned to the Demon Race’s camp. It wasn’t that he had taken the initiative to return, but just like before, he had suddenly returned to the platform.
Jia Long looked back at him and nodded slightly, “Good job.”
Blood Demon smiled and sat down cross-legged, closing his eyes to heal his injuries. In his battle with Lin Rusong, he had also suffered heavy injuries, so if he didn’t quickly recover, he definitely wouldn’t be able to participate in the next fight.
At this moment, whether it was the Star Boundary’s Pseudo Emperor or the Demon Territory’s Half-Saint, all of them had an uneasy thought in their minds: Who would be the next to go up the Life and Death Stage? If it was him, who would his opponent be?
Before they could finish this thoughts, they heard a slight movement beside them.
With their previous experience, everyone did not panic this time and immediately looked towards the Life and Death Arena. Seeing this, everyone from the Star Boundary cried out in alarm, while Yang Yan and Bing Yun’s beautiful faces sank.
This was because the Star Boundary’s candidate for the second deathmatch was actually Yang Kai!
Looking around, Yang Kai, who had been standing nearby just a moment ago, had indeed disappeared.
Yang Yan immediately showed a look of anxiety, unable to understand why the World's Will would choose Yang Kai to fight. Didn’t Yang Kai possess a World Will? Logically speaking, the world should be biased towards him. At this time, no matter what, Yang Kai shouldn’t be allowed to fight. Whether he won or lost this battle, it wouldn’t be beneficial to him. If he won, it would only consume his strength, and if he lost, it would only lead to a tragic end.
At this moment, Yang Yan couldn’t help feeling the urge to curse out loud. This damned Heaven really had no eyes.
Opposite him, Jia Long’s eyes suddenly lit up as he stared fixedly at Yang Kai, a look of eagerness appearing on his face. He was the strongest person under the Demon Saint, the strongest Half-Saint. If it weren’t for Yang Kai’s Space Ability, he was confident he could kill him.
However, whether it was in the outside world or in this World Secret Realm, even if he could win against Yang Kai, he wouldn’t be able to kill him. Once the situation became unfavorable, Yang Kai would immediately flee, and no one below the Demon Saint realm would be able to stop his teleportation.
However, the Life and Death Stage was different. It had a diameter of a thousand feet and was surrounded by invisible barriers that sealed off the world. Yang Kai’s Space Ability was unable to be used. As long as the world's will could choose him to fight, he would definitely be able to kill Yang Kai.
The anticipation in his eyes quickly turned into disappointment. With a loud bang, a figure of a Demon Race Half-Saint appeared in the corner of the Life and Death Arena.
Sweeping his eyes over them, Jia Long’s expression immediately became gloomy, while Yang Yan and Bing Yun’s originally worried expressions became somewhat strange.
Bing Yun smiled and said, “You really are blessed by the Heavens and Earth. Even at this time, you can still pick up a bargain.”
Yang Yan also let out a sigh of relief, “I’m relieved.”
On the high platform, Yang Kai was at a loss for a moment before quickly realizing that he had entered the Life and Death Stage. Just as Yang Yan's thoughts, he was slightly surprised, wondering why the World Will had chosen him.
However, Yang Kai didn’t think too deeply about it. Since it had chosen him, all he could do was kill his opponent at the smallest cost. As for whether or not he had the ability to do so, Yang Kai was quite confident. When he arrived here, the Pseudo Emperors and Half-Saints had already experienced a chaotic battle, all of them injured, none of them able to use their full strength. On the other hand, Yang Kai had entered a strange space and not only was his Dao Heart not damaged, but his mind was also clear.
With his full strength, there was no reason for him to lose to an injured enemy.
The first battle has ended in defeat and Lin Rusong had fallen, so no matter what, they had to win this second battle!
Before he could finish this thought, a figure appeared in the opposite corner.
Yang Kai immediately looked over, and after seeing who his opponent was, he couldn’t help grinning.
A thousand feet away, the Blood Demon, wore a paled face, looked around in panic, unable to understand why he had suddenly come back up here after just leaving the Life and Death Arena.
On the Demon Race’s side, there were fourteen or fifteen Half-Saints, but both times it was him! This probability was simply inconceivable.
Jia Long’s expression became gloomy, “The World’s Will…” If the one facing him wasn’t Yang Kai, he might have believed that this was a matter of probability, but since it was Yang Kai, it wasn’t so simple.
Previously, everyone had been speculating about what kind of help the World Will that had been bestowed upon Yang Kai would be able to provide him in this Great Dao struggle, but no one could say for sure. After all, there had never been such a record in history. It was only after seizing a Great Dao opportunity and becoming a Great Emperor that the World Will had been added to the body, but now, Yang Kai had reversed the situation. Such a situation was unprecedented and never seen before.
But now, whether it was the Star Boundary or the Demon Territory, both of them deeply understood the benefits brought about by this invisible World Will energy.
This Blood Demon Half-Saint had fought with Lin Rusong for an hour, and although he had won in the end, he was still an arrow at the end of its flight. At this time, not to mention Yang Kai, a High-Rank Demon King comparable to a Half-Saint, even if an ordinary High-Rank Demon King were to come, they would still be able to take his life.
This time, Star Boundary would undoubtedly win, so there was no need to doubt anything.
It was also because of this that Yang Yan and Bing Yun, who had seen Yang Kai enter the Life and Death Arena, completely relaxed.
Amidst the crowd, Cang Mo’s expression became gloomy, his eyes filled with anticipation turning into disappointment…
On the Life and Death Stage, a thousand feet away, Yang Kai stared at the Blood Demon indifferently, but did not choose to act immediately. This silent pressure caused the Blood Demon to panic, and he couldn’t help turning to Jia Long for help.
Just like how Lin Rusong was just before his death…
At this moment, he seemed to experience the despair of his previous opponent, and the light in front of him was completely shrouded in darkness.
Thump Thump Thump…
Yang Kai stepped forward and the Blood Demon couldn’t help retreating, but where could he retreat to? He was already in a corner, and the invisible barrier on the Life and Death Arena had sealed off the world, preventing him from continuing to retreat.
Looking over in horror, he saw Yang Kai’s head was lowered and the hair on his forehead covered half of his face, but from that hair, one could faintly see a fierce light…
There was also a dried corpse on the Life and Death Arena. It was Lin Rusong. Yang Kai walked over to the dried corpse, squatted down, stretched out his hand, and stored it into the Mysterious Small World.
When he stood up again, he looked towards the edge of the Life and Death Arena and saw Blood Demon staring at him vigilantly. He slowly raised his hand and shouted, “Die!”
A violent wind kicked up as Yang Kai’s figure remained in place, but at the edge of the stage, there was another him. At this moment, Yang Kai was holding his spear with one hand, the tip of his spear pointing towards a figure.
