When the Profound Heaven Temple had first opened, the Demon Race’s Half Saints had obtained a lot of information about the Great Dao struggle from Can Ye. This undoubtedly meant that Can Ye was in the Star Boundary, but no one knew where he was hiding to heal his injuries.
Since he knew this information, how could Yang Kai not be on guard against him?
Can Ye had been injured at the time because he had used his own body as a bridge to connect the Demon Territory and the Star Boundary, forcefully opening a passageway between the two worlds, and was later hurt by the Iron Blood Emperor Zhan Wuhen.
Since then, there had been no news of him, apparently he had been in closed door cultivation to recuperate.
Now that the war between the two worlds had reached its most critical juncture, it was impossible for him to remain uninvolved, whether he wanted to or not. Sure enough, when Yang Kai returned from the Profound Heaven Temple with the might of a Great Emperor, the Night Shadow Great Emperor who had been hiding in the darkness finally appeared.
With the black fog covering his face, Can Ye’s true appearance couldn’t be seen, but Yang Kai could clearly feel a pair of eyes staring deeply at him.
“You’re still not a Great Emperor?” A sonorous voice rang out from the other side, like the sound of metal scraping against metal, making one feel extremely uncomfortable.
“The Heavenly Dao admits that I am a Great Emperor!” Yang Kai replied lightly.
Can Ye slowly shook his head, “This world is barely surviving, don’t rely on it, you haven’t reached the Great Emperor Realm yet.”
Yang Kai grinned, “So what? I’ve always liked to jump ranks to challenge others, and under normal circumstances, it’s always my enemies who end up tragically, not to mention… how much strength can you display?”
Although it was only a brief confrontation, Yang Kai was still keenly aware of Can Ye’s current condition, his injuries had yet to heal!
His injuries were left behind by Zhan Wuhen, and at their level of strength, once they were injured, how could they fully recover in three to five years? Although Can Ye had been in seclusion these past few years, focusing on healing his injuries, the time he had was too short, not enough for him to fully recover.
If Yang Kai hadn’t come out, he wouldn’t have come out in such a hurry. It was because of Yang Kai’s appearance that he had been forced to stop him.
“A meaningless deathbed struggle!” Can Ye looked down at the battlefield below, “The Dragon Race’s two Great Elders cannot escape, even if you obtain the Heavenly Dao’s approval, if this king tries to stop you, you will definitely be distracted, and without you, High Heaven Palace will definitely fall within two hours. At that time, in this vast world, there will be no place for you!”
Yang Kai lowered his head slightly, “It seems I’ll have to kill you within two hours!”
“You can try!”
As the last word fell, Can Ye suddenly raised his hand and a blade appeared in his hand, slashing forward.
In front of him, Yang Kai suddenly appeared and thrust his Azure Dragon Spear forward. On the tip of the spear, a huge black ball exuded an aura that could collapse the world.
The blade struck the black ball, destroying it completely, but Can Ye’s body trembled and he couldn’t help flying backwards. This strike even caused the black fog covering his face to dissipate greatly, revealing a pair of extremely surprised eyes.
In the second confrontation, he was actually at a slight disadvantage.
Although he had yet to fully recover from his injuries and was unable to display his full strength, Yang Kai’s strength still shocked him. In his perception, Yang Kai had indeed not reached their realm, but because of the final struggle of the world, he had obtained the title of Great Emperor and gained some of the skills of Great Emperor. Who would have thought that he would actually be able to display the strength of a Great Emperor?
The retreating black mist condensed again, blocking his strange expression and rapidly fading away.
Yang Kai stretched out his hand towards him and shouted, “In the name of Void, form the World Seal!”
Crackles… A strange sound rang out from the void as invisible Void Energy gathered around Yang Kai like transparent chains.
In the blink of an eye, the transparent chains completely sealed off the surrounding thousand kilometers, forming a giant cage.
Can Ye’s figure slowly appeared in the corner of the cage like a ghost, quietly floating in the air, not saying a word.
Yang Lie pointed forward and shouted, “Can Ye! Today, either you die or I die!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a series of Void Cracks appeared in this giant cage, causing the entire cage to collapse. Only Can Ye remained unaffected.
Can Ye’s expression changed as he shouted, “You’re crazy!”
From Yang Kai’s tone, he could hear the determination in his voice. In other words, Yang Kai wasn’t trying to scare him, he really wanted to fight him to the death here!
This was simply unreasonable. At their level of strength, it was extremely difficult for them to fight to the death in a one-on-one situation, especially since Yang Kai himself was one of the Great Emperors recognized by the world. Moreover, even if this world was completely eroded, with Yang Kai’s current strength, he might not necessarily be able to survive, so he couldn’t understand why Yang Kai was acting like this.
“If you don’t go crazy, you won’t live!” Yang Kai stared coldly at Can Ye, “Enough nonsense, die.”
Reaching out towards Can Ye, the countless space cracks in the cage suddenly shot out towards him like a swarm of snakes.
Can Ye slashed down with his blade, the strike filled with the World Force seemingly ordinary, but it was incredibly profound, as if his body had transformed into a giant reef in the middle of the sea, completely immovable. The Space Cracks involuntarily slid past his body, completely unharmed.
At the same time, Yang Kai had already arrived, but before he even arrived, he spat out a mouthful of blood essence onto the Azure Dragon Spear.
Two resounding dragon roars rang out at almost the same time, and the golden Golden Holy Dragon Source flashed as the Azure Dragon Spear also transformed into a giant Azure Dragon, pouncing towards Can Ye with bared fangs and brandished claws.
This ancient aura seemed to have pulled him into an extremely distant era, shocking him to the core. Can Ye’s expression changed slightly as his figure flickered, transforming into countless figures. Each figure was exactly the same as him, even the aura they emitted was flawless.
Countless 'Can Ye' waved the blade in their hands and shouted, “Shadow Dance Killer!”
Blade light flashed and the giant dragon roared as the Azure Dragon phantom shattered and transformed back into the Azure Dragon Spear, colliding with the saber light.
Clang! Clang! Clang! The void collapsed and the earth was flipped upside down. If it weren’t for Yang Kai’s cage, this confrontation between the two Great Emperors would have been enough to shatter the world within a few million kilometers.
Only Yang Kai could set up such a sealing cage. His Dao was the Dao of Space, so he had a natural advantage in such matters. Any other Great Emperor would not be able to accomplish such a feat.
The shockwaves from the collision spread throughout the cage, causing the world inside to collapse into chaos.
The great armies of the two worlds below even stopped fighting and looked up. The various Half-Saint and Pseudo Emperors also distanced themselves and quietly watched.
Everyone knew that the battle between Yang Kai and Can Ye would affect the survival of the Star Boundary.
Although the battle between the Dragon Race’s two Great Elders and Xue Li’s group was also related to the overall situation, the five of them had already fought countless times. Each time, they were evenly matched, neither of them able to do anything to the other, so this time was probably the same.
Only Yang Kai’s side will give them a chance of survival.
However, although everyone was paying close attention, no one was able to clearly see what was happening on the battlefield. Inside the World Seal, there was only violent energy sweeping about, and the aura of primal chaos pervaded the air. Occasionally, two figures would flash past, and even their appearances couldn’t be seen clearly, so how could anyone tell who was better?
“Army's General Sir, how is the situation?” One of the Army Commanders quietly approached Li Wuyi and asked.
If there was anyone among the Star Boundary's Pseudo Emperors who could see through the situation, it would be none other than Li Wuyi. No one else had the qualifications to do so.
Unexpectedly, Li Wuyi also smiled wryly and shook his head, “I can’t see clearly…”
The Army Commander was stunned. If even Li Wuyi couldn’t see clearly, didn’t that mean Yang Kai had really reached the Great Emperor Realm? How could a battle between Great Emperors be judged by a Pseudo Emperor?
Thinking of this, the Army Commander’s spirits rose.
With a loud bang, the two entangled figures finally separated from each other.
A series of cries rang out from all over the world, and under the attention of the many Pseudo Emperors, they saw that Yang Kai’s face was pale, a trace of blood leaking from the corner of his mouth. It seemed he had been injured.
Even so, Yang Kai was still smiling as he called out, “Night Shadow Great Emperor, it’s nothing!”
As soon as he said this, everyone from the Star Boundary was startled and turned to look towards Can Ye, their jaws dropping.
Because at this moment, the black fog that had been shrouding Can Ye’s face had actually disappeared, revealing an ordinary face. There was nothing special about this face, and if it was thrown into a crowd of people, no one would take a second look at it. This face looked to be around forty years old, and it was a male face.
Was this the true appearance of the Night Shadow Great Emperor?
No one had ever seen what the Night Shadow Great Emperor looked like, not even the other Great Emperors, not even knowing if he was male or female.
At this moment, under the watchful eyes of the Star Boundary army, Can Ye’s appearance was known to all.
Chi Chi Chi… A sound rang out, and Can Ye looked down, his eyes narrowing slightly.
A foot-long wound appeared on his waist and blood spurted out from it. A strange power was growing from the wound like maggots in his bones, causing him to feel uneasy.
The short and hurried exchange just now had resulted in both sides suffering heavy losses.
With a cold snort, Can Ye used his own strength to suppress and seal the Martial Dao True Intent that had invaded his body!
This Martial Dao True Intent was extremely difficult to deal with, even if he wanted to resolve it as a Great Emperor, it wouldn’t be easy. Now that Yang Kai was eyeing him like a tiger eyeing its prey, how could he give him time to resolve it? Naturally, he could only suppress it first.
After doing all this, Yang Kai said solemnly, “The trial ends here. Can Ye, today will be your death anniversary!”
“Junior is too arrogant!” A trace of anger appeared on Can Ye’s face, obviously angered by Yang Kai’s shameless boasting.
“Arrogant or not, eat my spear first!” Yang Kai shouted as he moved his feet, ignoring the barrier of space and shooting out his spear like a dragon.
