Time had never passed so slowly before, and every breath and every moment of waiting was a torture.
Nine figures stood silently in the air, watching as the two auras inside the Great Demon God body pinned down by the Azure Dragon Spear continued to clash.
Gradually, the confrontation weakened and eventually subsided.
After an unknown period of time, the Great Demon God closed his eyes and lay there quietly, as if he had truly died.
However, under the Divine Sense monitoring of Yang Kai and the others, they could still feel a faint vitality from the Great Demon God’s body. The Great Demon God was not dead, but he had truly reached the end of his life.
The current Great Demon God was no longer as high-spirited as he had been when he had just been resurrected. Instead, he looked extremely miserable.
At a certain moment, he suddenly opened his eyes. Although his appearance was miserable, his eyes were still bright and his lips curled up as he let out a low chuckle. At first, his laughter wasn’t loud, but it gradually became a laugh, as if he had encountered something that made him extremely happy.
The Great Emperors simply stood by and watched.
Yang Kai turned his head to look at Duan Hongchen, but the latter’s expression remained unchanged, obviously unable to determine who was currently controlling the Great Demon God’s body.
“Mo Sheng?” Yang Kai shouted coldly.
After the laughter died down, the Great Demon God raised his eyes and looked over, “What do you think?” Then he let out a hiss and angrily shouted, “Junior, hurry up and pull out this damned spear!”
Yang Kai turned to look at Duan Hongchen again.
He really couldn’t tell if Wu Kuang’s Devouring had succeeded or not, so the only one who could make an accurate judgment was Duan Hongchen, who had lived with Wu Kuang for many years.
The others also looked towards Duan Hongchen.
Duan Hongchen shook his head, “I can’t tell!”
Yang Kai grinned, “That’s easy, I’d rather kill the wrong person than let him off!” In any case, Wu Kuang wasn’t a good person. When he dominated the Star Boundary, he had poisoned countless Lower Planes Star Fields, this could be treated as avenging those who died.
Great Demon God was furious, “Old Ghost Hongchen, you must be responsible for what you say. Believe it or not, this king will reveal your secrets!” Turning to look at Flower Shadow Great Emperor, he asked, “Hua Linglong, do you remember that one year you were in the Southern Domain’s Azure Sun Temple…”
“Shut up!” Duan Hongchen’s expression changed and he raised his hand to stop. As everyone looked on, cold sweat began to form on his forehead.
Flower Shadow Great Emperor's brow furrowed as suspicion filled her beautiful eyes.
“How do you say?” The Great Demon God raised his brow and smiled at Duan Hongchen.
Duan Hongchen glared fiercely at him before sweeping his eyes over the others and declaring, “He is Wu Kuang!”
“What about Mo Sheng?” Yang Kai asked.
Wu Kuang grinned maliciously, “This king is still alive, what do you think will happen to him?”
Yang Kai clicked his tongue in wonder. He hadn’t expected that Wu Kuang would really succeed in this matter, and in this defeat, not only had his resurrected body been seized, but even his Soul had been swallowed. Even if Mo Sheng had extraordinary abilities, it was likely he wouldn’t be able to stir up any more trouble.
Feeling relieved, Yang Kai felt an indescribable sense of exhaustion wash over him. Letting out a long sigh, Yang Kai fell straight down.
Not only him, but the Great Emperors, two Dragon Race Elders, and even the descendant of Heaven Punishment, Zhang Ruoxi, all of them fell to the ground like dumplings.
This earth-shattering battle had not lasted for long. From the moment the Great Demon God appeared until now, only a few days had passed. The Great Emperors had dominated the Star Boundary for many years and had fought countless life and death battles. Let alone a few days of fighting, they had even fought for several months or even several years.
However, there had never been a battle so difficult and exhausting.
After confirming that Mo Sheng was dead and their side had won, the tension in their hearts loosened and the Great Emperors all lost their composure.
But at the very least, with their cultivation, it was impossible for them to fall to the ground, instead they fell steadily.
Yang Kai’s situation was the best. He had refined the Eternal Tree and also had the Dragon Race’s Origin Source, so his recovery ability far exceeded that of others. At the very least, he still had some strength left. Sweeping his Divine Sense across the world, Yang Kai could feel the gazes directed towards him. Sensing the uneasiness in the hearts of the people from the Star Boundary, Yang Kai let out a sigh, “Mo Sheng is dead, we won!”
His voice wasn’t loud, but it was amplified by the World Strength and spread to every corner of the Star Boundary, reaching the ears of everyone who was still alive.
After a brief moment of silence, a shocking cheer rang out, and the inside and outside of High Heaven Palace burst into an uproar. A sense of joy filled the air.
Yang Kai grinned and directly lay down on the ground, staring up at the sky.
The sky was still hazy and the Demonic Qi was still rolling. Yang Kai mustered all his strength and spat out a huge hole in the Demonic Qi that covered the world, allowing the dazzling sunlight to disperse the darkness of the world, making everyone feel warm.
One by one, figures rushed out from High Heaven Palace and rushed into his arms, their cries filling the air. Little Senior Sister was crying the most, her eyes swollen like peaches, Xue Yue was also weeping, and although Shan Qingluo was trying her best to restrain herself, her tears were still flowing uncontrollably.
Zhu Qing and Su Yan were slightly better off, but their beautiful eyes were filled with lingering fear. When Yang Kai flew into the void wrapped in the severed palm and exploded, their hearts also shattered.
In that instant, Su Yan and the others felt as if the sky had collapsed.
Fortunately, half a day later, Yang Kai came back again, full of vigor and vitality. Even thinking about it now made their heart palpitate like in a nightmare.
Yang Kai hugged them from left to right for a while, trying to comfort them, but to no avail. Su Yan’s stern rebuke made all the women stop crying.
“Hey Junior, if you’ve had enough fun, can you come over and see this king? This king is still nailed here, if you don’t come over now, this king will die,” A dissatisfied voice came from nearby.
Yang Kai didn’t even look at him, “What’s the rush? In any case, you won’t die anytime soon, let me take a breath!”
Exhausted, he was truly exhausted. Even though he had refined the Eternal Tree and was quickly recovering from his injuries, his body was still completely intact, but the consumption of his strength was impossible to restore.
This time, if he didn’t rest for ten days or half a month, he wouldn’t have the strength to fight again.
However, although Mo Sheng had died, the Star Boundary had now become a huge mess and needed to be cleaned up. Things were far from over.
After a moment of warmth, Yang Kai allowed Su Yan to withdraw with the other women before standing up and walking towards the Great Demon God’s massive body.
When he was close enough, Yang Kai flew up into the air and grabbed the end of the Azure Dragon Spear. With a thought, the Azure Dragon Spear rapidly shrank to a length of three zhang and was pulled out by Yang Kai.
Wu Kuang let out a muffled groan as blood spurted from his chest and abdomen, but after breaking free from the Azure Dragon Spear, he was finally able to sit up. Looking down, he also gasped.
“How is it?” Yang Kai glanced at him.
Wu Kuang snapped, “I won’t die.”
“I’m asking about your new body,” Yang Kai sneered.
Wu Kuang silently felt it and grinned, “Good, it’s a thousand times better than that rotten body of Old Ghost Hongchen!”
With this physical body, as long as he could recover, Wu Kuang could immediately become an Open Heaven Stage master. Since he had swallowed Mo Sheng’s Soul, he could inherit everything Mo Sheng had.
Although there would definitely be some hidden dangers in this action, and it would not be comparable to the benefits he would gain from cultivating step by step, to Wu Kuang at this moment, the benefits were greater than the losses. Otherwise, he would still have to share his body with Duan Hongchen, something both he and Duan Hongchen could not endure.
Over the years, he had never attempted to possess another person’s body. Firstly, he couldn’t find a suitable one. After all, he was also a Great Emperor, so how could an ordinary person’s body be worthy of his attention? Secondly, Duan Hongchen didn’t dare let him leave so easily.
This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so Duan Hongchen couldn’t stop him.
As the two of them were talking, an unusual aura suddenly emerged from the distant land. This aura was so strong that only Great Emperors and Demon Saints could compare with it, and from the characteristics of this aura, it was obvious which Demon Saint possessed it.
All the Great Emperors were shocked. At this moment, none of them had the strength to fight back. If a Demon Saint were to attack, no one would be able to resist.
Yang Kai looked up and immediately saw a long streak of light speeding towards them. He couldn’t help laughing. This woman had woken up just in time to perfectly avoid a fatal disaster.
Under everyone’s watchful eyes, the long streak of light stopped in mid-air, revealing Bei Limo’s figure.
Sweeping her beautiful eyes across the crowd, she took in the situation of the many masters present and quickly fixed her gaze on Yang Kai and Wu Kuang, her eyes filled with surprise.
What… was going on?
She actually saw Yang Kai and the Great Demon God sitting together, chatting and laughing, less than a hundred feet apart from each other. Yang Kai held the Azure Dragon Spear without any hostility, the Great Demon God sat on the ground without the slightest killing intent, the Demon Saints had all disappeared, and the Great Emperors of the Star Boundary were all exhausted, their auras weak.
What had happened while she was unconscious? Could it be that the Star Boundary and Demon Territory had reconciled?
But how could this be? Bei Limo felt her head spin as if she was dreaming.
“Good luck!” Yang Kai nodded slightly towards her, causing Bei Limo to become even more confused. Her memory of the moment she had been knocked unconscious by Yang Kai still remained.
Although she had been controlled by the Great Demon God at that time, her consciousness was still clear. She, Yu Rumeng, and Chang Tian had walked out of that strange space, but before she could exert her strength, the Soul Brand Yang Kai had planted in her Knowledge Seas had taken effect, causing her to instantly fall unconscious. Even now, her head felt like they had been split open.
Bei Limo estimated that her Soul had suffered some kind of injury. At that time, Yang Kai was so anxious that he couldn’t even think about controlling the power of the Soul Brand. All he could think about was to knock Bei Limo out.
After that, the Great Demon God was outnumbered and had no choice but to merge with many Demon Saints, but Bei Limo’s unconscious body did not accept the recruitment and she managed to survive safely. Otherwise, she would likely have been like Xue Li and the others and become the Great Demon God’s greatest asset. If that had been the case, Bei Limo would not be here now.
