When he first heard this voice, Yang Kai felt it was somewhat familiar, but he couldn’t remember where he had heard it before. However, when the pair of giant eyes appeared in the sky, he immediately remembered. He had seen this pair of eyes countless times before, but at that time they were filled with shyness and timidness. After so many years, this pair of beautiful eyes was filled with confidence and strength.
“Ruoxi!” Yang Kai muttered.
That’s right, that’s right, that voice and that pair of eyes seemed so familiar. If it wasn’t Zhang Ruoxi, then who was it? And Zhang Ruoxi was in the Blood Gate of the Eastern Region.
‘Is she finally coming out?’ Yang Kai stared towards the east, his eyes burning.
Several decades had passed since Zhang Ruoxi had entered the Blood Gate, but the Blood Gate had not moved at all. A few years ago, when he had gone to the Demon Territory for the last time, the Blood Gate had finally undergone some changes. Originally, he had planned to stand guard there and wait for the Blood Gate to open again, but who would have thought that there would be a sudden change in plans, so he could only set out to enter the Demon Territory.
When he returned, there were continuous battles, followed by the struggle for the Great Dao, so he had no time to investigate the situation at the Blood Gate.
Before he left, he had told Li Wuyi that it was highly likely that the Blood Gate would open again, allowing him to constantly monitor the situation there.
Now, Zhang Ruoxi was transmitting her voice!
Yang Kai didn’t know what was happening on Zhang Ruoxi’s side or whether the Blood Gate had been opened, but from what she had just said, it was highly likely that Zhang Ruoxi had been awakened by the battle between him and Mo Sheng.
This was not surprising.
Today’s battle involved the survival of the Star Boundary and had shaken the foundation of the entire world. Although the Blood Gate was the Heavenly Punishment Palace and had formed its own world, it was just like any other small world, dependent on the Star Boundary. The entire Star Boundary was in turmoil, so how could the Blood Gate remain safe?
Zhang Ruoxi, who had been inside the Blood Gate all this time, would definitely be disturbed, so it was not surprising for her to wake up.
However, to Yang Kai’s surprise, Zhang Ruoxi actually recognized Mo Sheng. Just now, she had called out Mo Sheng’s name, and Mo Sheng’s previous words were also quite interesting. He seemed to know Zhang Ruoxi’s ancestor, the master known as Heavenly Punishment.
Zhang Ruoxi being able to recognize Mo Sheng should have something to do with the Heavenly Punishment Inheritance she had received and the many bloodlines and memories of her ancestor.
But how did Mo Sheng and Heavenly Punishment know each other? Were these two masters from the same era? Or were they both from the Outer Universe?
Suddenly, Yang Kai remembered the story that Mo Sheng’s clone had told him in the Ancient Battlefield.
In this story, Mo Sheng had suffered two serious injuries, and the second time was related to the Passing of Time Great Emperor. In that battle, the Passing of Time Great Emperor had died and his Dao had been destroyed, resulting in a tragic end. Mo Sheng’s body had been destroyed and he had no choice but to recuperate. It was also because of this second injury that he had begun to scheme for the Star Boundary Spirit’s power.
As for the person who had injured him the first time, Mo Sheng didn’t say anything, only that it was a woman.
Now that he thought about it, could that woman be Heaven Punishment? Thinking about it, Yang Kai’s body trembled. If that was the case, then he had underestimated Heaven Punishment's strength. She was a peerless master who had once seriously injured Great Demon God. Although she had also suffered heavy injuries, she was at least on the same level as Great Demon God.
If this was really the case, then after the battle between Heaven Punishment and Mo Sheng, Mo Sheng had gone to the Matchless World to recuperate while Heaven Punishment had wandered to the Star Boundary, leaving behind a great reputation and the power of her bloodline that had been passed down for thousands of years.
The more he thought about it, the more he felt that it was possible. In the memories of the many Holy Spirits, Heaven Punishment had also appeared out of nowhere. Before this, there had been no trace of this powerhouse’s growth, but one day, she had suddenly appeared, shaking the world and made a name for herself.
If she really came from the Outer Universe, everything made sense.
“Hahaha!” Mo Sheng laughed heartily, his laughter like thunder, “Good, very good, today you actually let this king to meet an old friend’s descendant here. The Heavens have eyes, little girl, please wait a moment, after this king is done here, this king will go see if you still have your ancestor style.”
As he spoke, his huge body suddenly shook, and Yang Kai felt a massive pressure press down on him from all directions, making him feel somewhat powerless.
Suddenly, a voice rang out beside his ear, “Mister, can you hold on a little longer?”
“Ruoxi?” Yang Kai asked in surprise.
“Please persist for another hour, Ruoxi will come over to help you.”
“Take your time, it won’t be too late to dress up!” Yang Kai laughed, his heart filled with joy. It wasn’t just because he had heard Zhang Ruoxi’s voice again after so many years, but also because his previous worries hadn’t come true. Even if Zhang Ruoxi had obtained the Heaven Punishment Inheritance, there hadn’t been many changes.
The familiar voice reminded him of the timid little girl who had always been by his side.
As he spoke, he once again mobilized the World Strength to resist the boundless Demonic Qi.
Zhang Ruoxi smiled lightly, “Seeing Mister so energetic, Ruoxi is relieved.”
At this point, there was no sound, probably because he was busy with something and had no time to spare.
“Half an hour…” Yang Kai let out a long sigh. Although he had two Dragon Clan Elders and many Pseudo Emperors supporting him, he had always felt like he was fighting alone in this World Battlefield.
Now, there was finally Zhang Ruoxi!
Although he didn’t know how much strength she would be able to display once she came out of seclusion, from the pair of beautiful eyes in the sky just now, Zhang Ruoxi’s current strength should not be inferior to his.
As expected of a Bloodline Inheritance that could seriously injure a Great Demon God at his peak. In such a short time, it had actually caused such a huge change to that timid little girl.
In half of an hour, he had to persevere even if it meant risking his life.
As soon as this thought appeared in his mind, Yang Kai felt the pressure around him suddenly increase, and as he desperately tried to resist, he couldn’t help feeling a chill, “Mo Sheng, you’re in a hurry…”
From the pressure coming from all directions, Yang Kai could feel Mo Sheng’s eagerness. It was as if he couldn’t wait to devour the last Pure Land of the Star Boundary and absorb its last bit of spiritual energy.
This made Yang Kai happy instead of shocked. Mo Sheng’s attitude clearly showed that he was also quite wary of Zhang Ruoxi, otherwise he wouldn’t have acted like this.
Mo Sheng coldly snorted but didn’t answer, no longer remaining calm, making Yang Kai even more certain of his guess.
Zhang Ruoxi now had the strength to threaten him! This strength was at least equal to his current strength.
However, even though he knew this, Yang Kai couldn’t make use of it to do anything. All he could do now was persevere until Zhang Ruoxi came out of seclusion and combined their strengths to defeat Mo Sheng.
At this moment, Yang Kai’s expression changed. The defensive barrier he had been trying so hard for resisting actually showed signs of collapsing, causing him to be greatly shocked.
After a brief examination, his face immediately sank.
Right now, in this Star Boundary, he was the only Great Emperor who could mobilize the power of the entire world, but in that instant, he suddenly discovered that his control over the world had become much weaker, as if there was another force that had divided his control over the world.
In that instant, he faintly sensed the auras of the other seven missing Great Emperors…
He had once felt the auras of these seven Great Emperors and knew that they were trapped in a strange space, unable to escape. However, since that time, he had not been able to sense them, much less know where they were trapped.
However, just now, the feeling was extremely clear, and there were even some clues about where they were. Under normal circumstances, as long as he was given some time, he might be able to find the location of the various Great Emperors.
But at this moment, Yang Kai didn’t have the time to investigate this matter. His control over the World Strength was weak, and the result was that his resistance to the Great Demon God was becoming weaker.
On the other hand, the Great Demon God seemed to have borrowed the power of the world to suppress him greatly.
“What did you do?” Yang Kai growled through gritted teeth.
Mo Sheng sneered, “Why don’t you guess?”
“Bastard!” Yang Kai cursed. Although he didn’t know what method Mo Sheng had used, he was certain that the changes in the World Strength were related to the other seven Great Emperors.
Mo Sheng seemed to be able to seize their control over the World Strength and use it to suppress him.
As the two of them were conversing, in a strange space, Zhan Wuhen was sitting cross-legged, staring at Huang Wuji with a pale face. The two of them were less than three feet apart, and at this moment, there was a withered palm stuck in Huang Wuji's chest. This palm was filled with an extremely terrifying aura, and although it was a dead object, it still caused Zhan Wuhen to be greatly moved. It was difficult to imagine just how powerful the owner of this palm must have been when he was alive.
This palm was not the one he had stabbed into Huang Wuji’s chest, but rather his own.
As the blood was swallowed by the palm, Huang Wuji’s aura rose steadily, reaching a level that even Zhan Wuhen had to look up to. At this moment, the Demon Territory's number 1 Demon Saint was performing a series of hand seals while pointing a finger towards Zhan Wuhen. It was unknown what kind of strange Secret Technique he was using, but Zhan Wuhen could clearly feel a mysterious power being drawn out from his body.
This power was the World Will that the world had bestowed upon him.
Relying on this World Will, his destiny was boundless, and he was able to use the world’s power for himself.
At this moment, Zhan Wuhen asked the same question as Yang Kai.
“What did you do?”
Huang Wuji’s face twisted and his body trembled as if he was enduring a great deal of pain, “Don’t worry, Lord Demon God will soon end this.”
“Great Demon God?” Zhan Wuhen grit his teeth and asked.
The two of them had been trapped here for several years, so naturally, they would not have no communication. It was also from Huang Wuji that Zhan Wuhen learned about the Great Demon God’s existence and some of the Demon Territory’s schemes.
“That’s right, Great Demon God will soon be resurrected, and all of you will become Great Demon God’s sacrificial offerings!” Huang Wuji’s face showed a hint of madness, as if he was willing to sacrifice everything for this so-called Great Demon God.
