“Human heart…” Yue He sneered, her voice filled with ridicule, but she had no intention of stepping forward to intervene. This Star City was a chaotic place, so not to mention being swallowed into the Great Ruins Boundary, even if it was outside, people would often fight to the death on the streets.
Yang Kai looked around and found that there were many similar scenes. All the shops in the Star City had been swallowed into the Great Ruins Boundary, and even the goods in the shops had not been spared. Now that everyone had fallen here and had completely lost contact with the outside world, the goods in the shops had naturally become popular, especially in places like Spring Grass Hall, which specialized in selling Spirit Pills. The shopkeepers and employees of these shops had tried their best to stop them, but how could they stop this group of wolves and tigers? All of them had been swept away.
“All of you, stop! If anyone dares to touch my Spring Grass Hall’s things, I’ll kill them!” With a loud shout, a half-grown old man flew over from nearby and landed in front of the collapsed Spring Grass Hall, his sharp eyes sweeping across the surrounding area.
When Spring Grass Hall’s workers saw this, they were all overjoyed and quickly gathered around this man. One of the workers cried out, “Sir, you must uphold justice for us! Not only did this bastard snatch our Spirit Pills, he even killed the shopkeeper with a single blow!”
The newcomer glanced at the shopkeeper’s corpse on the ground before turning to the big man holding the saber, “Did you kill him?”
The saber-wielding man’s brow wrinkled as a trace of fear flashed across his eyes, but soon, this trace of fear disappeared as he placed his saber on his shoulder and sneered, “Senior Kang, long time no see.”
The old man surnamed Kang coldly snorted, “Ding Yi, you’re quite bold. You clearly know that these are my people, yet you still dare to act. I think you’re tired of living. If you obediently kneel down and cripple your own cultivation, this old master will spare your life. If you dare act so stubbornly, don’t blame this old master for being ruthless.”
The burly man named Ding Yi heard this and said, “Senior Kang is truly imposing.”
Shaking his head, he grinned, “If we were outside, with Senior Kang’s Third Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation, how could I dare offend you? I could only obediently kneel down and lick your boots, but Senior Kang, have you forgotten what kind of place this is? This is the Great Ruins Boundary, the Great Ruins Fog suppress and seal the universe world. I wonder what kind of strength Senior Kang can display with his Third Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation?”
The old man surnamed Kang angrily shouted, “It is more than enough to kill you!”
Ding Yi swung his saber forward and glanced towards the front, “Then this Ding will have to experience Senior Kang’s skill.”
“You’re courting death!” The old man surnamed Kang flew into a rage. When he saw this person who had been so respectful to him in the past blatantly provoking him, how could he tolerate this? As soon as he finished speaking, he pounced towards Ding Yi and struck out with his palm.
Not only did Ding Yi not show any fear, his eyes instead lit up as he laughed, “Old dog, you’ve been riding on our heads for over a hundred years now, today is the perfect time to collect some interest.”
From the tone of his voice, it seemed he had some kind of grudge with Old Man Kang, otherwise he wouldn’t have targeted Spring Grass Hall.
The saber’s light expanded dramatically as it slashed down towards Old Man Kang’s palm.
The old man surnamed Kang sent out several palm strikes in quick succession, and two figures collided, causing Ding Yi to retreat several dozen meters before crashing into a collapsed shop. The old man surnamed Kang only took three steps back before stabilizing himself.
As soon as they began fighting, Ding Yi fell into a disadvantageous position.
But in the eyes of the surrounding cultivators, this scene caused the eyes of countless people to burn.
This old man surnamed Kang was a Third Order Open Heaven Stage master. If he was in the outside world, how could Ding Yi compete with him? However, in the Great Ruins Boundary, although Ding Yi was still not his opponent, he at least had the qualifications to fight.
The mist of the Great Ruins Boundary had suppress and sealed the universe world, so it was true!
Rumble! Like a thunderclap rolling across the ground, Ding Yi rushed out from the collapsed building with his saber in hand. Although blood flowed from the corner of his mouth, his eyes were shining as he waved his saber and said, “Brothers, there is no Open Heaven in the Great Ruins Boundary. This old dog has humiliated us for many years, today we will take revenge!”
As soon as these words were spoken, the cultivators who had been following Ding Yi all wore shocked expressions as they summoned their artifacts and followed Ding Yi towards the old man surnamed Kang.
Old Man Kang’s expression changed drastically. Although he had the help of Spring Grass Hall’s workers, the huge gap in numbers was not something he could make up for. Screams rang out as several of Spring Grass Hall’s workers fell to the ground in less than three breaths. Even Old Man Kang was struck by the power of several artifacts and vomited blood.
Seeing that the situation was hopeless, the old man surnamed Kang grit his teeth and said, “Ding Yi, this old master will definitely pay you back a hundredfold in the future, you better remember this!”
Saying so, he turned around and rushed out of the Star City. Although Ding Yi and the others tried their best to stop him, there was nothing they could do. After all, Old Man Kang had the foundation of a Third Order Open Heaven Stage master. Although he couldn’t display his full strength in the Great Ruins Boundary, if he wanted to escape, Ding Yi and the others wouldn’t be able to stop him.
Looking at Old Man Kang’s departing figure, Ding Yi spat on the ground, his heart filled with unwillingness.
In the Star City, countless people watched this scene with different thoughts, some happy while others sad.
Ding Yi raised his arms and shouted, “Brothers, our Emperor Realm have lived a humble and difficult life in the Outer Universe, all of this is thanks to the arrogant Open Heaven. Today is a heaven-sent opportunity for us to enter the Great Ruins Boundary. Do you still want to let those high and mighty Open Heaven ride over your heads? Why don’t you follow this Ding and fight it out with us, overturning the Heavens and flattening the Earth? When we leave, we can also look down on all living things!”
These words were extremely provocative, and they struck a chord in many people’s hearts, especially those Emperor Realm who had always been bullied by the Open Heaven Stage masters. All of them felt a strong sense of resonance, all of them hoping to be able to turn the tables around and take charge of the situation.
In an instant, many people gathered around Ding Yi, seemingly wanting to follow his lead.
Yang Kai slowly turned to Yue He and asked, “Is there no Open Heaven in the Great Ruins Boundary?”
Although he didn’t know what the old man surnamed Kang’s true cultivation was, since Ding Yi had said he was a Third Order Open Heaven Stage master, he shouldn’t have made a mistake. However, in the battle just now, the old man surnamed Kang had only displayed the strength of a Emperor Realm, so how could he possibly have the power of Open Heaven? Thinking back to what Ding Yi had said before, Yang Kai had a faint guess.
Yue He hesitated for a moment before sighing, “That’s right, although the Great Ruins Fog doesn’t have any killing power, it is extremely strange. If it enters one’s body, it will suppress and seal the small universe world. In other words, in the Great Ruins Boundary, Open Heaven Stage cultivators are unable to display their full strength, which is why the Great Ruins Boundary had no Open Heaven.”
Yang Kai stared at her for a long time before grinning, “Then you’re doomed!”
Yang Kai couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Originally, when he had suddenly ended up in such a place, he had been a bit unhappy, thinking that if Yue He hadn’t held him hostage, he wouldn’t have suffered such a fate, but now it seemed he had to thank her properly.
In the Great Ruins Boundary, the Open Heaven Stage's small universe world was actually suppressed and sealed. The strength that an Open Heaven Stage cultivator could display was limited, just like the old man surnamed Kang, who was only able to draw out a strength of the Emperor Realm peak. If that wasn’t the case, how could the old man surnamed Kang, a Third Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, be beaten by Ding Yi and the others?
When it came to the Emperor Realm, when had Yang Kai ever been afraid of anyone? He had never imagined that in the Outer Universe, there would be a time when he could do whatever he wanted.
Hearing this, Yue He lightly snorted, “So what if the universe world is suppressed and sealed? The Open Heaven Stage is still the Open Heaven Stage, after all, with its own foundation, an ordinary Emperor Realm master is no match for it.”
Yang Kai put his hands behind his back and lightly said, “That’s because you can’t imagine my ability.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “Moreover, in this Star City, the number of Emperor Realm is more than a dozens or hundreds of thime of the Open Heaven Stage. If one person isn’t an opponent, how can ten people not be?”
Yue He said angrily, “Are you trying to fight me?”
Yang Kai turned his head and smiled, “There’s no need for that, someone will take action against you. After all… you’re an Open Heaven Stage master!”
Hearing this, Yue He’s expression changed slightly, and when she turned her head, she saw Ding Yi staring straight at her, his eyes filled with greed and burning desire, looking at her beautiful face and bountiful body as he pointed his long sword and shouted, “Brothers, I remember this woman is a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, what do you think we should do?”
“Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage!” A group of people exclaimed.
To most cultivators, Open Heaven Stage cultivators were all lofty existences. Even a Third Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator like Old Man Kang was a great character in their eyes, let alone a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. Many people had never seen such a powerful cultivator in their entire lives.
This was especially true for Yue He’s charm. Her pair of peach blossom eyes seemed to be able to capture one’s soul, causing many people’s hearts to stir as greed filled their hearts.
“Capture her, so what if she’s a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage master? She’s just like us in the Great Ruins Boundary.”
“Tsk tsk, a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage master, this old master has never played with such a big character in his life. If I can spend the night with her, even if I die, it will be worth it!”
“This woman doesn’t look like a proper person, she must be very energetic in bed!”
Filthy words came from all directions, causing Yue He’s face to turn cold and her killing intent to overflow. Normally, these Emperor Realm and even those who weren’t even Emperor Realm masters wouldn’t dare speak to her like this. But in this special environment of the Great Ruins Boundary, coupled with Ding Yi bewitchment, the dark side of a person’s heart was immediately exposed. It was as if just the foulness of their words alone was enough to make this group of people find a lot of pleasure, making their words even more unbearable.
Yue He was so angry that her whole body was trembling. Gritting her teeth, she shouted, “You’re courting death!”
Ding Yi sneered, “The last guy who spoke like this has already fled. If you know what’s good for you, Madam, you should obediently surrender. This Ding may be able to dote on you, but if you don’t, don’t blame us brothers for not showing you any mercy!”
As he spoke, the saber’s light flickered, making him look even more ferocious.
