In the vast Star Boundary, only a thousand kilometer radius of the North Region’s High Heaven Palace remained untouched. The various armies of the Star Boundary had gathered here, with the two Great Elders of the Dragon Race personally presiding over it. This place would be the final battlefield for the final battle between the Human Race and Demon Race.
If they won, they would have a chance to catch their breath.
Defeat meant eternal damnation!
Since the beginning of the war between the two worlds, the millions of living beings in the Star Boundary had been reduced to nothingness. In the north, south, east, and west regions, humans who had been reduced to demons had been corroded by the Demonic Qi and had lost all sanity, only knowing how to kill.
Although High Heaven Palace was large, it couldn’t accommodate so many people. Now that the Star Boundary’s various armies had gathered, it was almost packed with people. For this reason, many soldiers had no choice but to stay in the World Bead.
As for the many World Beads Yang Kai had refined, they were all filled to the brim.
Perhaps it was the final protection of the will of the world, but after the Demonic Qi had eroded the three regions of the South, East, and West, a large portion of the North Region’s land had been impeded by High Heaven Palace.
The corrosion speed was extremely slow, and in the end, it was unable to advance even an inch. It was as if there was some kind of force around High Heaven Palace that was blocking the Demonic Qi’s corrosion, preserving the last foothold for the Star Boundary.
Now that the entire Star Boundary had been taken over, whether it was the Demon Saints or the Half Sages below, none of them could tolerate the existence of High Heaven Palace. Only by eroding its existence would the Demon Race’s grand plan be complete.
Perhaps there was also a sense of crisis from losing the Great Dao.
Therefore, ten days after the Great Dao Struggle ended, three days after the Eastern Region fell, the Demon Race army attacked.
Countless Demon Race cultivators from the various Demon Caves rushed out from all directions and surrounded High Heaven Palace. Without any small talk, they immediately launched an all-out attack.
The first ones to attack High Heaven Palace were not the Demon Race’s army, but the Human Race who had been corrupted by the Demonic Qi and had been reduced to demons. The number of these demons was ten times or even a hundred times larger than the Demon Race’s main forces. In the current four regions of Star Boundary, Demon Race armies could be seen everywhere, and as long as they were captured and driven away, they would be able to form a massive camp.
Unconscious and only knowing how to kill, the demons, driven by the Demon Race, fearlessly rushed towards High Heaven Palace.
The strength of these demons was generally not high, and any random soldier from the Star Boundary’s various armies could easily kill a large number of them, but their numbers were simply too great.
Outside High Heaven Palace, a fierce battle broke out.
Facing his former compatriots, Li Wuyi could only steel his heart and issue an order to annihilate them. In just three days, tens of millions of Demon Race cultivators had died outside High Heaven Palace. In a thousand kilometer radius, rivers of blood flowed and corpses piled up.
With the deaths of these Demon Race masters, the Demonic Qi in their bodies began to disperse, finally contaminating the land that was originally protected by the world. Outside High Heaven Palace, the Demon Land once again pushed forward. Although its speed was not fast, if this continued, High Heaven Palace would one day be unable to survive.
Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun flew into a rage and rushed out of High Heaven Palace, straight towards the Demon Race’s main army. Although they had unleashed their full strength, Xue Li, Fu Yu, and Huo Bo had managed to stop them in time. In this great battle, many of the Demon Race had died, but it had nothing to do with the overall situation.
The number of white hairs on Li Wuyi’s head increased. Every day, he would look up at the Void Heavenly Cauldron in the sky countless times, staring at the flashing characters around it, secretly praying for Yang Kai to return as soon as possible.
Ten days after the final battle began, the Demon Land pushed forward another five hundred kilometers from High Heaven Palace, another five days later, another three hundred kilometers…
Outside High Heaven Palace, only two hundred kilometers remained pure.
As time passed, the Demon Race’s attacks became fiercer, while the Star Boundary was somewhat exhausted. Despair spread across the various armies, and under the heavy pressure, many people’s wills were on the verge of collapse as all kinds of chaos took place inside High Heaven Palace.
The outside and inside was in a state of crisis. Many masters were under great pressure.
As the battle raged on, inside the Void Heavenly Cauldron in the Profound Heaven Temple, under the Divine Tree, Yang Kai seemed to be sleeping.
After swallowing the Source Heaavenly Fruit, Yang Kai fell into a deep sleep, unable to resist the sleepiness he felt. He barely managed to say a few words to Yang Yan and the others before falling into a deep sleep.
His mind was empty and he felt nothing around him, as if he had returned to his mother’s womb. A sense of peace enveloped him as a new life was born.
At a certain moment, his consciousness cleared up and he couldn’t help thinking about his own Great Dao.
If it weren’t for his previous experience in finding out the meaning of Dao, Yang Kai might not have known what he wanted, but after that strange experience, Yang Kai now knew what he should do.
Searching for his own Dao, the Dao acknowledged by the world!
His Dao was the Dao of Space!
The memories of the past lingered in his mind as his comprehension of the Space Laws began to surface. He thought back to when he had first obtained the basics of the Space Laws, after which he had achieved some small accomplishment, and after that he had reached a higher level of mastery.
Layer by layer, Yang Kai’s Dao became clearer.
The void trembled as tiny cracks appeared in the surrounding space like snakes.
His Demonic Qi and all of his Divine Consciousness were rapidly shrinking towards a certain point in his body, faintly showing signs of transforming into a mysterious mark.
Although no one had told him this before, Yang Kai quickly understood his own situation after experiencing this process.
Gathering one’s essence, energy, and spirit, condensing one’s own Dao Seal!
Only in this way could he walk his own Dao and possess his own Dao.
This was a dangerous process, but also a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Yang Kai didn’t dare to be careless as he slowly poured his comprehension into the embryonic form of the Dao Seal, slowly perfecting it.
Not knowing how much time had passed, not knowing what was happening outside, all of his attention was focused on the Dao Seal.
Slowly, the vague outline of the Dao Seal became clearer.
However, Yang Kai wasn’t satisfied because this speed was too slow.
At this moment, he had completely forgotten about the crisis of the Star Boundary, but his subconscious knew that he had to condense his Dao Seal as quickly as possible, otherwise he would regret it for the rest of his life.
Almost instinctively, Yang Kai took out the World Source Liquid from his Mysterious Small World and gulped it down.
This time, the feeling of being able to split apart heaven and earth caused his spirit to tremble.
When the world was first created, the power of the Laws was extremely rich, and a mouthful of World Source Liquid seemed to pull Yang Kai back to the ancient era when the world was first created. As he stood in the midst of this chaos, a formless energy wrapped around him, condensing into the power of the Dao Seal.
As Yang Kai greedily devoured it, the speed at which the Dao Seal condensed in his body also increased significantly. The bright Dao Seal flashed with a dazzling light as it imprinted itself onto his bone, causing Yang Kai to emit a faint golden light.
Outside High Heaven Palace, the Sect Protecting Array flashed wildly as countless Demon Race masters rushed forward one after another, attacking from High Heaven Palace and reaping the lives of these Demon Race masters.
Corpses piled up into mountains and blood flowed everywhere. This was a turbulent era, an era of slaughter and blood.
The weak could not control their own life and death while the strong could fall at any time.
The Heavenly Dao was merciless, the Heavenly Dao was impermanent!
Li Wuyi’s black hair had completely transformed into silver threads within ten days as he stood atop High Heaven Peak, his expression solemn as he stared outside the great array.
The expressions of the people behind him were also extremely solemn. Although they had always been on edge, afraid that they would lose the last barrier and fortress of High Heaven Palace, at this moment, no matter who it was, they all felt a strong desire to fight.
Being able to perish together with the Universe World, which they had been born in, was worth it.
A figure rushed forward and Ying Fei appeared, wiping the blood from his face as he cupped his hands and said, “Reporting, the Northwest Great Array is in imminent danger. In short, it will take an incense stick’s worth of time, it will be broken, at most, it would take an hour. Senior Fu Renjie requests assistance!”
Li Wuyi turned his head to look around, but there was no sign of any reinforcements. With the urgency of the situation, the entire army had been sent out, and now the entire High Heaven Palace was being attacked from all directions. The people behind him were only the personal guards responsible for passing down orders, so they no longer had any troops on hand.
Turning around, Li Wuyi coldly ordered, “Pass down my order, if we can’t defend the Northwest Great Array, ask Fu Renjie to drag a few more Demon Race Half-Saints with him!”
Ying Fei’s mouth twitched as he cupped his fists, “Yes!”
Turning around, he flew out.
Li Wuyi’s eyes narrowed slightly as he looked up at the Void Heavenly Cauldron and let out a long sigh. In the end, was he still powerless to reverse the situation?
Soon, he retracted his gaze as the Space Laws around him fluctuated wildly, with a murderous look on his face as he asked lightly, “Are you afraid?”
Several of his personal guards who had been following him shouted, “Not afraid!”
Li Wuyi grinned, “Between life and death, there is a great terror that even this king is afraid of, yet you’re not?”
A few of the personal guards wore embarrassed looks as one of them said, “If we can follow Sir, even if we die on the battlefield, we will have no regrets in this life!”
The others also cupped their fists and said in unison, “We are willing to live and die together with Sir!”
Li Wuyi was in high spirits as he shouted, “Good, that’s a good idea!” His arms shook as he said in a low voice, “All of you, follow this King into battle and kill the enemy!”
A burst of murderous intent burst forth.
“Sir… Sir!” A guard suddenly called out in a trembling voice.
Li Wuyi sneered, “Are you afraid? It’s normal to be afraid.”
“No, Sir, look over there!” The guard pointed towards the sky.
Li Wuyi’s eyes couldn’t help narrowing as he stared at the Void Heavenly Cauldron floating in the sky. At this moment, the patterns on the surface of the Void Heavenly Cauldron were actually flickering, and the originally clear and variable names were rapidly changing at a dazzling speed, soon becoming impossible to read.
For so many days, the Void Heavenly Cauldron had always been in that state, never having undergone such a change. No one had expected it to undergo such a change at this moment.
“This is…” Li Wuyi’s eyes suddenly widened as he stared fixedly at the Void Heavenly Cauldron. The flickering lines on the surface of the Void Heavenly Cauldron seemed to be condensing into two large characters, but the light was flashing so quickly that it was difficult to see them clearly.
After a moment of silence, a blurry word finally became clear. At a certain moment, with a loud bang, a dazzling light filled the entire Star Boundary. At that moment, the Demonic Qi in the Star Boundary seemed to have been torn apart and the long-awaited light once again descended.
Li Wuyi’s eyes suddenly shrank as he stared at the golden word that seemed to illuminate the world, his heart filled with joy.
