However, at first glance, it was impossible to tell who had the upper hand.
Panting, Yang Kai’s chest rose and fell as he reached out to grab the Azure Dragon Spear next to him, a look of reminiscence and nostalgia appearing on his face as he said in a low voice, “This spear is for the beautiful Universe World!”
As soon as he finished speaking, his figure flickered and he instantly appeared in front of Can Ye, shooting out a spear.
Can Ye raised his blade to parry, but it was as if he had lost his strength. Before he could even fully lift his two blades, his body trembled and the Azure Dragon Spear had already been poured into his lower abdomen, penetrating his body. A violent force exploded from his back, shattering his clothes and leaving behind a huge bloody hole.
With his eyes wide open, Can Ye stared fixedly at Yang Kai who was standing in front of him, gritting his teeth loudly as he coldly said, “This King is Night Shadow Great Emperor…”
Yang Kai turned a deaf ear to this and drew his spear, drawing out a large amount of blood as he stabbed out again, his voice indifferent.
“This spear is for the billions of lives lost in the Star Boundary!”
With a piercing sound, the Azure Dragon Spear pierced through his heart.
Can Ye’s body shook again, blood leaking from the corner of his mouth as he let out a chuckle, “This king has dominated the Star Boundary for tens of thousands of years…”
Yang Kai raised his spear again, his indifferent voice suddenly becoming louder as he cried out, “This spear is for Senior Bright Moon!”
This sorrowful voice resonated throughout the entire Star Boundary, and with a loud cracking sound, thunder and lightning flashed as a heavy rain fell from the sky.
Lightning flashed and thunder roared as the long spear smashed towards Can Ye’s head, causing it to explode and red and white matter to spray out in all directions.
The lightning became fiercer, and the rain became more violent, washing away this foul world.
A deep sigh seemed to echo between the heavens and earth, and the giant crack behind Yang Kai slowly closed.
There was no announcement, no one knew, but every living being in the Star Boundary suddenly had a flash of enlightenment: a Great Emperor had fallen!
Yang Kai put away his spear and took a deep breath, an unprecedented sense of joy filling his heart, causing him to roar towards the sky. His roar was like thunder, resonating with the sound of thunder, causing everyone’s eardrums to tremble.
Not only had killing a Great Emperor made him so happy, but he had also finally avenged Bright Moon!
Bright Moon had died in the Eternal Heaven Continent, and although it was the joint attack of many Demon Saints, the true fatal blow had been delivered by Can Ye. Yang Kai had watched from a distance and clearly witnessed that battle. If Can Ye had not suddenly appeared at the last moment and attacked Bright Moon Great Emperor, Ming Yue might have had a chance to survive.
After all, he had been on guard against all of the Demon Saints at the time, but he hadn’t been on guard against Can Ye appearing in Eternal Heaven Continent.
It was also during that battle that Yang Kai obtained the Bright Moon legacy, allowing him to reach the end of the Great Dao struggle and obtain the Source Heavenly Fruit.
It could be said that today’s achievements were all thanks to Bright Moon Great Emperor.
Receiving favors from others, Yang Kai naturally had to take revenge for them! Unfortunately, his strength had been insufficient before, so even if he wanted to, he was powerless to do so. Now that this heaven-sent opportunity come, how could Yang Kai miss it?
It was only at this moment that Yang Kai felt that the burden that had been weighing on his heart was finally lifted.
Amidst the rumbling roars, the Demon Race’s army was like a quail that had yet to build its nest in the cold winter, shivering in fear. Many of the Half-Saints who were observing the battle wore looks of panic and fear.
Inside High Heaven Palace, on a mountain peak filled with corpses, Lan Xun stared at the headless corpse in the sky, tears streaming down her face as she fell to her knees and wailed, “Father, Can Ye is dead, rest in peace.”
Not far behind her, Xiao Chen, who was covered in blood, held a long sword in his hand as he stared forward, his heart filled with bitterness. Was the gap between them so great? It was likely that he would never be able to catch up to this person’s pace in his life.
An angry roar came from the clouds, mixed with a loud dragon roar.
As far as the eye could see, in the sky above, five figures were entangled with each other as they gradually retreated.
With Can Ye dead, Xue Li and the others were filled with fear and didn’t dare to stay any longer. Naturally, they immediately fled, otherwise, when Yang Kai returned to his senses, they wouldn’t be able to escape even if they wanted to.
The Dragon Race’s two Great Elders were already evenly matched with them, and with Yang Kai’s help, they would definitely fall into a disadvantageous position. Moreover, they were also frightened by Yang Kai’s reckless fighting style.
The three of them had fought with the two Dragon Clan Elders many times but had never dared to use their Dao Seals to kill their enemies.
Yang Kai had only just broken through to the Great Emperor Realm, yet he dared to act so presumptuously. It was simply impossible to understand.
As soon as the three Demon Saints retreated, the morale of the entire Demon Race army on the battlefield immediately plummeted. The Half-Saints followed closely behind, and the Demon Race army on the ground was naturally defeated.
Over the past few years, they had been oppressed by the Demon Race and had been forced to flee countless times, causing the Star Boundary Army to be filled with a bellyful of anger. Moreover, just now, the last piece of their Pure Land had almost been invaded, so how could they let the Demon Race off so easily? The remaining Star Boundary Army immediately swarmed out from High Heaven Palace and chased after the enemy from all directions, causing millions of corpses to fall.
What made all the Demon Race feel slightly relieved was that after Yang Kai killed Can Ye, he had been standing in place, not only not helping the two Great Elders of the Dragon Race, but even ignoring the retreating Demon Race army.
It wasn’t that Yang Kai didn’t want to care, if it was possible, he naturally wanted to keep the Demon Race army here, and with his current strength, it was possible for him to do so.
Before, Can Ye had come out to stop him, but now that even Can Ye was dead, who in this world could stop him?
However, in the battle with Can Ye, although he had killed a powerful enemy, he had also paid a great price. The hidden dangers brought about by the collision of Dao Seals were no small matter, and the Dao Seal which had originally been imprinted in his dragon bone now couldn’t help but dim slightly.
Can Ye was still a Great Emperor after all, and although he had been abandoned by the World at the last moment and could no longer mobilize the World Force in this world, his own strength was still there, and his desperate struggle had caused a great shock to Yang Kai.
After that, Yang Kai shot out three times in a row. These three shots seemed ordinary, but how could they be so simple?
Almost all of Yang Kai’s energy was poured into each shot.
At this moment, he couldn’t move at all. If Xue Li and the others had been a bit more courageous and managed to escape from Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun, he wouldn’t even have the strength to fight back.
Using his inner vision, Yang Kai saw that the Dao Seal in the dragon bone was not only dim, but also showed signs of dissipating. Yang Kai was truly scared out of his wits. If his Dao Seal really collapsed like this, he would be the shortest-lived Great Emperor.
He had just stepped out of the Profound Heaven Temple and his Dao Foundation had collapsed in less than half a day…
How could he dare hesitate? He quickly tried to stabilize the Dao Seal.
In front of him, Can Ye’s headless corpse strangely didn’t fall, instead gradually melting like snow under the sun.
Not long after, Can Ye’s corpse disappeared without a trace, and the World Energy he had seized from the Profound Heaven Temple returned to the Star Boundary.
Those with lower strength would not be able to sense it, but those above the Pseudo Emperor Realm would be able to sense that there was something invisible in this world. This thing was extremely profound, and if one could take this opportunity to comprehend it, they would definitely benefit greatly.
When Yang Kai opened his eyes again, it was already half a day later. Night had fallen and the world was shrouded in darkness, the Demonic Qi wreaking havoc everywhere, even the sky was dim and the stars and sun were nowhere to be seen.
A large group of people stood in front of him, led by Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun.
“How is it?” Fu Zhun asked nervously. Although she and Zhu Yan had been fighting with the three Demon Saints, they were well aware of Yang Kai’s movements and naturally knew how he had killed Can Ye at the last moment.
All of them were extremely worried, afraid that something would happen to Yang Kai’s Dao Seal.
Yang Kai slowly shook his head and smiled, “I’m fine, thank you for your concern, Second Elder.”
Although the Dao Seal was still somewhat dim at the moment, at the very least, there was no risk of it collapsing. As long as it could slowly recover in the future, it would naturally recover.
However… Yang Kai didn’t dare to use such a method again. Previously, he had been forced by the situation and had been acting like a newborn calf that didn’t fear a tiger, but now that he understood how dangerous it was, Yang Kai had no choice but to be cautious.
“It’s good that you’re alright!” Zhu Yan let out a long sigh, his heart finally relaxing. This young man in front of him was not only the Great Emperor of the Star Boundary, but also the Dragon God of the Dragon Race. This matter concerned the survival of the Dragon Race and the entire Star Boundary, so how could Zhu Yan not be nervous?
“Li Wuyi and his fellow comrades greet Lord Void!” Behind Zhu Yan, Li Wuyi, whose white robes were dyed red with blood, stepped forward and bowed.
Behind him, a group of Star Boundary’s Pseudo Emperors and the Demon Race’s Half-Saints who had submitted to the Star Boundary said in unison, “Greetings, Lord Void!”
“Senior, you…” Yang Kai was caught off guard and quickly helped Li Wuyi up.
Half of his position as Great Emperor was thanks to the Bright Moon Great Emperor, while the other half was thanks to Li Wuyi. If Li Wuyi had also participated in the Great Dao struggle, Yang Kai estimated that this position would have fallen into Li Wuyi’s hands.
At that time, he wouldn’t be the one with the Lord Void title.
How could Yang Kai accept such a ceremony from Li Wuyi?
Li Wuyi smiled and said, “On the path of the Dao, those who have achieved it comes first, and Sir is already a Great Emperor. You can’t mention the word Senior again, this Li cannot accept it.”
Yang Kai smiled bitterly as he swept his eyes over the people behind him. All he could see were pairs of fiery eyes. No matter how old Yang Kai was, no matter if he was a junior or not, now that he had been recognized by the world and had become a Great Emperor, the entire Star Boundary was standing behind him, allowing him to purge the gloom and give hope to others.
With a solemn expression, Yang Kai cupped his fists and said, “Everyone, thank you!”
Everyone didn't dare to talk.
Yang Kai took a deep breath and turned his eyes to the crowd behind him, where many familiar faces were staring at him respectfully.
Among these faces, Zhu Qing, Su Yan, Xue Yue, Shan Qingluo, Xia Ningchang, Ji Yao, and the others all wore proud looks.
This was their man.
This was also the future hope of the Star Boundary!
