As Old Man Yu spoke, he had already arrived three kilometers away from the lake. Glancing at the mist rising from the lake, he asked, “If I’m not mistaken, that should be Bai Qi inside, right?”
His voice was neither loud nor soft, allowing the Proprietress in the middle of the fierce battle to hear him clearly. Since they were able to find out that Old Bai needed Yang Element energy to break through to Open Heaven, it was naturally not difficult to guess who was inside the Spirit Array.
“This old master wants to take this Bai Qi's life right now. Lan Youruo, let’s see how you choose!” Old Yu shouted.
“Despicable!” Yang Kai grit his teeth, his eyes filled with blood.
The old man could clearly see that the Proprietress was currently restrained and didn’t want to disturb Bai Qi's breakthrough by causing too much of a disturbance in the battle, so he just had to say these words. As soon as these words were spoken, it would definitely disturb the Proprietress’ mental state. Moreover, if he really took action, unless the Proprietress stopped him, no one would be able to protect Bai Qi, and once the Proprietress was distracted, the situation would become even worse.
“In a life and death struggle, the victor is the king while the loser is the thief. What kind of despicable and noble act is there?” Old Man Yu glanced at Yang Kai coldly as he formed a series of hand seals, drawing upon the World Energy around him.
From the looks of it, it seemed like the Spirit Array was about to bombard the lake.
Yang Kai didn’t dare be negligent. The key to today’s situation was Old Bai. If Old Bai could successfully break through, the Proprietress would be able to completely break free from her shackles and engage in a fierce battle with the three of them. At that time, Old Bai would join the battle, and even if he couldn’t defeat them, he would be able to protect himself. So, no matter what, he couldn’t let that old dog surnamed Yu ruin Old Bai’s plans.
With this thought in mind, Yang Kai’s figure flashed as he leapt towards Old Yu.
Old Yu stood in place, his expression calm as he stared at Yang Kai’s figure, his eyes filled with ridicule, “A mantis trying to stop a chariot, seeking its own death.”
Saying so, he raised his palm and pushed forward.
The speed of this palm could be said to be extremely slow, but as this palm was pushed forward, it was as if an entire world was pressing down on it. As this palm pushed forward, the surrounding space shattered and everything was reduced to dust.
Yang Kai, who was rushing forward, suddenly felt as if he had crashed into an invisible wall, his movements becoming extremely quiet, and with a loud bang, his five viscera and six bowels began to churn as he spat out a mouthful of blood.
However, he didn’t retreat in the slightest as he reached out and grabbed the Azure Dragon Spear, gathering all of his strength before ruthlessly thrusting it forward.
The tip of the spear was surrounded by a profound Martial Dao intent, and at the tip of the spear was a fist-sized black hole.
“En?” Old Man Yu raised his brow slightly, slightly surprised. He had thought that with Yang Kai’s current cultivation, he would be reduced to dust in the next instant, not even leaving behind a corpse. Who would have thought that he would only be injured? Moreover, the power released by this spear didn’t seem like something an Emperor Realm could display.
Old Man Yu’s eyesight was extremely sharp, and with just a glance, he was able to tell that the spear in Yang Kai’s hand was an extraordinary artifact.
The Azure Dragon Spear was a gift from the Giant Spiritual God, Ah Da. Yang Kai didn’t know who had refined this spear, but through his Dragon Vein, he could clearly feel that this spear was refined from the spine of an adult dragon.
With a single thrust of his spear, an Azure Dragon appeared, its roar shaking the world.
Such a long spear was one of the best artifacts in the Outer Universe, but with Yang Kai’s current strength, he was unable to display its full power.
A Dragon Prestige filled the air as the Azure Dragon flew about. Old Man Yu’s eyes widened in shock as he cried out, “Dragon Secret Treasure?”
It wasn’t because of the power of Yang Kai’s spear, but because this little brat actually possessed such an outrageous artifact. If the Dragon Race heard about this, how could the Dragon Race let him off so easily!
For a time, even the little bit of greed in his heart disappeared. Even if he was given such a spear, he wouldn’t dare take it unless he never used it in front of others again. Otherwise, sooner or later, the Dragon Race would come knocking on his door and the Wind and Cloud Paradise wouldn’t be able to protect him.
“The ignorant are fearless!” Old Man Yu clicked his tongue in amazement. In the entire Three Thousand Worlds, even the most knowledgeable people would not use such a treasure. Yang Kai, an Emperor Realm, actually dared to use it. If this wasn’t ignorance, what was?
His heart trembled and the power of his palm weakened slightly.
Yang Kai attacked with his spear and pushed forward a thousand meters, directly charging towards Old Man Yu.
However, this was his limit. Old Man Yu’s hand seals changed again, and Yang Kai’s momentum came to a halt as he was frozen in place by a powerful force, unable to move forward no matter how hard he tried.
“If you want to die, this old master will grant you your wish!” Old Man Yu coldly snorted, his eyes filled with ridicule as he stared at Yang Kai, raising his hand and slapping it down towards Yang Kai.
As this palm fell, Yang Kai’s head was hit by a large azure Yuan Qi hand.
At this critical moment, Yang Kai suddenly grinned at him.
Old Man Yu suddenly had a bad premonition. Although he didn’t know where this feeling came from, he felt a great sense of alarm in his heart, as if something extremely bad was about to happen.
In the next moment, Yang Kai raised his hand and shot out a golden light. Within this golden light, there seemed to be a foot-long feather that rushed towards him.
Old Man Yu’s eyes widened and all the hairs on his body stood on end as a chill ran down his spine. Without even thinking about it, he summoned his strength and formed a protective barrier around his body before quickly retreating, putting some distance between himself and Yang Kai.
As the golden light flashed, a giant Golden Chicken suddenly appeared. When this Golden Chicken appeared, the entire Secret Realm trembled as if it couldn’t withstand this Golden Chicken’s monstrous aura.
Old Man Yu’s eyes trembled as he stared at the golden chicken, a name flashing across his mind, “Mie Meng!”
Even Qi Jin and the others who had been fighting with the Proprietress were shocked, the old man Ling Chunqiu almost turned around and left!
Golden Chicken! In the entire Three Thousand Worlds, it was a terrifying beast. An adult Golden Chicken was an existence comparable to a High Rank Open Heaven. Although its ranking wasn’t as high as a dragon or phoenix, it wasn’t someone a few Mid Rank Open Heaven could resist. If they angered it, it could kill them all with a single claw.
He couldn’t understand how Mie Meng had appeared here.
But soon, everyone discovered that this was not the real Mie Meng, but a Divine Ability! Qi Jin and the others couldn’t help breathing a sigh of relief.
At this moment, Old Man Yu was terrified.
He was only a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage, so how could he possibly resist such a destructive Divine Ability? Even though he had already fled the moment he sensed something was wrong, he still didn’t feel the slightest sense of security.
When Mie Meng appeared, its eyes were indifferent, as if it didn’t care about anything else. It stared at Old Man Yu indifferently before stretching out its neck slightly and pecking with its beak, as if it was a chicken eating a worm.
Old Yu, who was fleeing at top speed, was the worm Mie Meng was eating!
There was a great terror between life and death, and Old Yu screamed, “Save me!”
No one could save him. No one had expected that Old Man Yu, who had only gone to deal with Yang Kai and Bai Qi, would also be in mortal danger. Qi Jin and the others had placed all their attention on the the Proprietress, so who would be able to free themselves? Moreover, it was already too late.
Under Mie Meng’s pecking, Old Yu, who had fled ten kilometres away, suddenly came to a halt, his head hanging low, his entire body like a deflated balloon, his aura of a Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage rapidly falling.
At this moment, a huge hole had appeared on his chest and abdomen, almost covering his entire body. From the wound, one could clearly see the squirming flesh and blood.
Such an injury could be said to be fatal, but with the vitality of a Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage cultivator, as long as there were suitable conditions, it was not impossible to recover.
However, even though Old Yu’s physical body was still intact, there was no aura of a Soul in his broken body.
A miserable scream came from the other side. It was Old Man Yu’s voice.
Yang Kai looked up and couldn’t help narrowing his eyes as he saw Mie Meng open its mouth and swallow a blurry figure.
Yang Kai could clearly see that the blurry figure was Old Man Yu’s Soul Avatar. This scene made Yang Kai feel both happy and terrified.
The force of Mie Meng’s single peck not only destroyed most of Old Yu’s body, but even Old Yu’s Soul Avatar was being pecked out and was about to be swallowed.
Ignoring Old Man Yu’s desperate pleas, Mie Meng quickly swallowed the Soul Avatar into its stomach and then glanced down at Yang Kai, its giant body suddenly disintegrating into specks of golden light before dissipating.
Yang Kai bared his teeth in pain!
In the end, he had used up the last of the Golden Plume Feathers. He had wanted to use it to deal with Ling Chunqiu or Yue He to relieve some of the pressure on the Proprietress, but in the end, he had used it on Old Yu.
It couldn’t be said that it was a waste. If he didn’t use it on Old Yu, Old Bai’s side would definitely be in danger. However, right now, he really couldn’t help the Proprietress, so he could only hope that Old Bai would quickly advance!
Moreover… he felt that he had somewhat underestimated the Proprietress's strength.
A Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage couldn’t even withstand a single blow from Mie Meng, so how could a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage withstand such an attack? It was likely the same result.
What kind of combat strength did the Proprietress, who was able to block Mie Meng’s attack and only suffered a minor injury, have?
Turning his head to look, he saw that the originally precarious situation had now been reversed by the Proprietress, and the two sides were evenly matched! Moreover, while these people were fighting with the Proprietress, they were also paying attention to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s eyes lit up. He knew that they were afraid because of Mie Meng’s terrifying attack just now, so they were constantly paying attention to his movements.
None of them knew that the Golden Plume Feather was the last.
Yang Kai’s eyes flickered as he grinned maliciously and walked towards the battlefield step by step. Sure enough, as he approached, Qi Jin’s expression remained unchanged while Ling Chunqiu and Yue He were both shocked.
“What are you afraid of!?” At this critical moment, Qi Jin shouted angrily, “This brat’s strength is too low, so what if he can summon Mie Meng? If he can’t get close to the battlefield, he won’t be a threat!”
