At the back of the crowd, Lan Xun’s eyes were red as she stepped forward and bowed, “Many thanks to Lord Void for avenging my father’s death, Star Soul Palace is eternally grateful!”
Yang Kai smiled bitterly again, “Junior Sister Lan is being too serious. I have received Lord Bright Moon's favor and obtained my current achievements, so how could I not do my best?”
This tittle was exactly the same as the one she had heard from him before, Junior Sister Lan, causing Lan Xun to almost burst into tears again, “If Senior Brother has any requests in the future, my Star Soul Palace will not refuse.”
Following closely behind her, Xiao Chen’s eyes flashed a trace of sadness and helplessness.
Yang Kai took a deep breath and said, “Let’s talk about this in the future. Right now, we need to overcome this crisis first.”
As he spoke, Yang Kai’s thoughts stirred and everyone present felt their vision blur. Before they could react, they suddenly appeared atop a tall mountain.
Turning their head, they saw that this peak was actually High Heaven Peak.
They couldn’t help being moved. Just now, they had been on a battlefield several hundred kilometers away from High Heaven Palace, so it was undoubtedly Yang Kai’s doing to be able to appear here in an instant. However, thinking about how Yang Kai had already become a Great Emperor, it made sense. Only a Great Emperor could use such a method.
Looking around, the entire High Heaven Palace was in ruins.
Under the Demon Race’s all-out attack, High Heaven Palace’s Sect Protection Array had been broken and the Demon Race had poured in from all directions, fighting to the death with the Star Boundary's army on this final piece of pure land. Both sides had suffered countless casualties.
At this moment, the entire High Heaven Palace was filled with the corpses of countless Human Race and Demon Race. This place, which used to be filled with mountains and rivers, was now like an Asura Purgatory.
The Demon Land had already expanded to the outside of High Heaven Palace, and High Heaven Palace was currently filled with Demonic Qi. If he left it alone, it wouldn’t be long before this last piece of pure land was destroyed.
At that time, the Star Boundary would no longer have a place for human race.
Under everyone’s gaze, Yang Kai slowly floated up into the air, with a solemn look on his face as an invisible Dao Energy flowed out from him, causing everyone to involuntarily feel a sense of worship as their eyes went blank.
A soundless explosion rang out from the depths of his heart as Yang Kai’s hands quickly formed a series of seals. This seal was so strange that no one could understand what it was.
As the seals changed, with Yang Kai at the center, a visible shockwave spread out.
Everyone’s eyes couldn’t help widening as they looked around in shock, only to see that wherever the ripples passed, the scattered Demonic Qi in High Heaven Palace seemed to be pushed aside and began to tumble outwards.
At the beginning, the rate at which the ripples spread was not high, nor was it fast, but as time passed, the ripples continued to expand and soon spread throughout High Heaven Palace.
A deep and solemn voice resounded throughout the world, “In the name of my Void, return this world to its former glory, withdraw!”
The shockwave exploded and a ring of light condensed beneath Yang Kai’s feet, spreading out in all directions.
In the area covered by the halo, the Demonic Qi disappeared and the Demon Land melted, returning to its original form. Even the haze that had been shrouding High Heaven Palace was unable to resist the baptism of World Strength. A huge hole appeared in the sky, and as the dazzling sunlight shone down, it gave people the illusion that they had arrived in another world.
The hole in the sky rapidly expanding outwards, and the Demon Land on the ground also shrank back…
Boom boom boom…
Rings of light continuously pulsed at a unique frequency.
Li Wuyi’s expression froze, as if he had thought of something, his figure flickered and he instantly disappeared.
Not long after, he suddenly reappeared, his face filled with excitement.
“Army's General Sir, what did you discover?” Bing Yun asked quietly.
Li Wuyi was pleasantly surprised, “The Pure Land is expanding!”
“Really?” Zhu Yan asked in surprise.
“I saw it with my own eyes!”
As soon as these words left his mouth, everyone was excited.
Looking at Yang Kai’s actions, coupled with the changes in High Heaven Palace, everyone had their own guesses, but when Li Wuyi personally went to confirm this information, they were able to confirm it.
The expansion of the Pure Land meant that in the future, the Star Boundary army’s range of activity would increase, and there would be no need for them to defend High Heaven Palace anymore.
After several years of oppression, was it finally time to counterattack?
The Demon Race had set up a great array to erode the Star Boundary with their boundless Demonic Qi. Many Great Emperors of the Star Boundary had been trapped and no one could resist them. Although the two Great Elders of the Dragon Race had the power of Great Emperors, they were not Great Emperors after all. The two of them could work together to resist the three Demon Saints, but they could not do anything to the Demonic Qi that had eroded the Universe World.
Yang Kai was different. He possessed the will of the Heavens and Earth and was recognized by the world. Right now, in the entire Star Boundary, he was the only Great Emperor. In other words, his current body was the spokesperson of the Heavens and Earth, so naturally he could borrow the power of the world to protect the interests of this world.
This was something only Great Emperors could accomplish. No matter how strong the two Dragon Clan Elders were, it was impossible to cook without a rice.
The halo continued to spread outwards and wherever it passed, the Demonic Qi would dissipate and become pure land!
Li Wuyi frowned again, “But… after being corroded, this world is somewhat different from before.”
Although Yang Kai was currently using the World Strength to dispel the Demonic Qi and expand the Pure Land, Li Wuyi was still keenly aware of the difference in the places that had once been contaminated by the Demon Land.
“What’s different?” Everyone asked.
Li Wuyi shook his head, “I can’t put my finger on it.” It wasn’t just a simple loss of vitality, it seemed more serious.
“Now that the Spirit is gone, it’s naturally different,” Yang Kai’s hands continued to move as he let out a sigh. When Mo Sheng had told him about the Spirit, he hadn’t really understood what the world spirit was, but now, how could he not understand?
If this world was alive, then this world spirit was the essence, energy, and spirit of this world!
The expansion of the Demon Intent was not only transforming the Star Boundary’s land into Demon Land, but also swallowing the spiritual energy of this world.
Although Yang Kai could now use the World Strength to expel the Demonic Qi and compress the range of the Demon Land, what it had lost could no longer be recovered.
A thousand kilometers, ten thousand kilometers, a hundred thousand kilometers, a million kilometers…
In less than an incense stick’s worth of time, with High Heaven Palace as the center, all the Demonic Qi within a million kilometers was purged!
As he spoke, a buzzing sound suddenly rang out between the world, and soon after, an ethereal aura suddenly rose from the east. Although this aura wasn’t strong, it still caused everyone’s hearts to skip a beat as they felt a sense of unease.
“It’s about time…” Yang Kai took a deep breath and looked towards the east before suddenly shouting, “Mo Sheng, get out of the Star Boundary, or this King will make you sleep here forever!”
As soon as Mo Sheng’s name came out, Li Wuyi and the two Dragon Race Elders’ expressions changed drastically and they quickly followed Yang Kai’s gaze.
They had heard of this name from Yang Kai before and knew what it meant.
It was the Great Demon God of the Demon Territory. The reason why the Demon Territory had become a Demon Territory was related to this person. When Yang Kai had returned from the Demon Territory, he had told them about his encounter with Mo Sheng’s clone, so they had been on guard against him.
However, after such a long struggle between the two worlds, the so-called Great Demon God had not caused any trouble. Only the disappearance of the Great Emperors seemed to be related to him.
No one had expected that at this critical moment when the dark clouds in the Star Boundary were about to be cleared and the moon was about to rise, this fellow would actually appear.
Thinking about it, it wasn’t strange. According to the information Yang Kai had brought back, Mo Sheng had wanted to devour the Star Boundary Spirit to restore his injuries, but now he had failed at the last moment. Even the Demon Intent and Demon Land which had invaded the Star Boundary had been purified by Yang Kai, so how could he possibly restrain himself? Whether he wanted to or not, he had to show himself.
However… that was a terrifying existence who had once killed the Passing of Time Great Emperor, a strange master who had come from somewhere in the Outer Universe. Although he had yet to recover, no one dared to underestimate him.
With the exception of Li Wuyi and the two Dragon Clan Elders, no one else understood what Yang Kai’s words meant.
But soon, they understood…
The Demonic Qi of the entire Star Boundary was gathering towards the east, and a massive figure slowly appeared.
The figure’s head was up in the sky, his feet were on the ground, and the Demonic Qi around his body was rolling. The strange Qi from before came from this figure.
However, unlike the initial weakness, the Qi aura now became extremely terrifying, and as the Demonic Qi from the entire Star Boundary gathered, a terrifying pressure descended from the sky.
Even though it was far away, the giant figure still gave off a sense of invincibility. It could even be said that no one could even think of opposing it.
Everyone was shocked.
The Dragon Race’s two Great Elders also wore solemn expressions as they were shocked to discover that the giant black shadow was stronger than any Great Emperor.
The giant figure roared and thunder roared as a giant face slowly emerged from the head.
Others might not be able to recognize this face, but how could Yang Kai not? This was the face of Mo Sheng he had met before, but the one in front of him was the Great Demon God’s true self. The one he had killed in the Mysterious Small World Ancient Battlefield was just a clone.
“We meet again.” The giant face’s mouth opened and closed as an ear-piercing sound rang out. As it spoke, a faint smile appeared on its face.
“Get out of the Star Boundary!” Yang Kai coldly stared into the giant pair of eyes, his eyes burning hot. Whether he admitted it or not, his Demon Eye of Annihilation and Purgatory Black Pupil had both originated from this Great Demon God. Now that his true self had appeared, he was immediately affected.
“You’re very strong, actually using such a short time to reach this height. With your aptitude, even this King hasn’t seen many people like you. How about it? Is the scenery here interesting?” Mo Sheng didn’t seem to feel Yang Kai’s hostility and asked.
“I will personally enjoy the scenery, it has nothing to do with you. If you leave the Star Boundary now, this King will let bygones be bygones, but if you insist on being stubborn, don’t blame this King for being ruthless.”
“Hehehehe…” Mo Sheng laughed loudly, his giant face filled with joy, as if he had just heard an extremely pleasant joke. Amidst his laughter, the entire Star Boundary seemed to change.
