Seeing this, the dozen or so people from Scarlet Star were overjoyed and excited, all of their faces filled with pride and joy. They were even more glad that they had not defected before, otherwise they would not have been able to witness such a great battle.
Turning around, they saw Old Man Zhu leading a few dozen people towards them, causing them to become nervous.
The Sixth Manager being able to kill hundreds of people was the Sixth Manager’s ability, but it didn’t mean that Thunder Light was a pushover.
They had clashed with the Thunder Light countless times and each of them had suffered injuries, so they naturally knew how difficult and powerful the other was.
This time, there were several dozen people rushing over, and there was even an expert like Old Man Zhu, so how could they possibly be his opponent?
Many pairs of eyes turned to Yue He and Guo Ziyan, waiting for their orders.
Guo Ziyan gripped the long staff in his hand tightly, his blood boiling as an eager look appeared on his face. Seeing the Sixth Manager’s unparalleled divine might with his own eyes made him want nothing more than to rush over and kill the enemy right now.
Yue He’s expression was quite solemn as she took a step forward, “Don’t act rashly!”
Saying so, she took out the small flower umbrella artifact and gently rotated its handle, causing the small flower umbrella to spin and expand, instantly enveloping the dozen or so people on her side. At the same time, a thin thread-like object fell from the edge of the umbrella to form an invisible shield.
Old Man Zhu rushed forward, but when he saw this, he gritted his teeth and angrily shouted, swinging his axe down. The dozen or so people behind him also did not hesitate to use their Artifacts and Secret Techniques.
In an instant, the protective barriers around Scarlet Star’s group began to ripple like stones being thrown into a calm lake.
Yue He formed a series of hand seals and poured all of her strength into the Small Flower Umbrella, but even with her Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, even if the Small Flower Umbrella’s defensive capabilities were extraordinary, it was still unable to last long.
In less than ten breaths of time, the Small Flower Umbrella had already begun to shine with a dim light, and the protective barrier around everyone was also in imminent danger.
It wouldn’t be long before this layer of protection was completely broken. At that time, besides Yue He and Guo Ziyan, who were both Open Heaven Stage cultivators, the remaining dozen or so Scarlet Star cultivators would definitely die.
After struggling for another three breaths, Yue He couldn’t hold on any longer and turned around, shouting, “Young Master, if you don’t help me, I’ll die!”
“Coming!” Yang Kai stepped out from the Scarlet Flood Dragon’s head, and when his foot landed, he was already above Old Man Zhu’s head, his Space Laws fluctuating wildly as the Azure Dragon Spear descended.
On the tip of the spear, a fist-sized black ball was spinning, containing the aura of death.
Feeling the destructive power, Old Man Zhu’s expression changed greatly and he raised his hands to meet it with his two axes.
With a loud bang, the black ball on the tip of the Azure Dragon Spear suddenly expanded, instantly engulfing a radius of a few dozen zhang before disappearing in a flash. In that instant, everything within that radius of several dozen zhang, including the void, disappeared, leaving behind only a black hole that radiated a chaotic aura.
The black hole squirmed and slowly repaired itself under the influence of the World Laws.
The dozen or so Thunder Light cultivators within a radius of several dozen zhang all let out miserable screams before disappearing without a trace.
A thousand feet away, Old Man Zhu’s eyelids jumped wildly as he stared at the black hole in horror.
Just now, when he saw that the situation was not looking good, he had fled quickly, otherwise he would have been seriously injured by Yang Kai’s attack. Looking down, he saw that his two axes had been beaten so badly that their brilliance had dimmed and their vitality had been greatly damaged.
After the first spear strike, Yang Kai shot out two more times and killed more than a dozen Thunder Light cultivators. The remaining people immediately scattered like birds and beasts, allowing Yue He and the others to escape from danger.
Turning his head, he saw that the Scarlet Flood Dragon had also stabilized its situation. He had helped it just now and had greatly reduced its pressure. At this moment, the Scarlet Flood Dragon was filled with rage as it chased after the Thunder Light cultivators around it, completely ignoring its own injuries.
After all, it was a vicious beast, and under its violent nature, it had almost lost all rationality.
Holding his spear, Yang Kai looked up at Old Man Zhu and pointed his spear forward, grinning at Old Man Zhu, “Old dog, die!”
The old man surnamed Zhu was terrified. When they were at their peak, the two of them, Open Heaven Stage, had led hundreds of disciples, but they had still been slaughtered by Yang Kai and the Scarlet Flood Dragon. Now that half of them had died, how could he have the courage to continue fighting?
In his heart, he silently cursed Bie Jian. He didn’t know where he had offended this killing god, it was actually so terrifying. With this person guarding Scarlet Star, how could Thunder Light compete?
With these thoughts in mind, his figure didn’t stop. A bloody mist burst out from his body as he transformed into a streak of bloody light and fled into the distance.
Seeing that the situation had taken a turn for the worse, he immediately fled, not even caring about the hundred or so surviving subordinates.
With Old Man Zhu running away, how could the disciples under him have the mood to continue fighting? All of them abandoned their opponents and scattered.
Staring at the fleeing blood light, Yang Kai grinned maliciously, “Want to run? Can you escape?”
With a twist of his spear, he activated his Space Laws to pursue.
However, at this moment, a sudden change occurred.
A mournful cry suddenly rang out from the depths of the earth, followed by a series of earth-shaking explosions as a dazzling light suddenly shot up from a nearby mountain peak. The light distorted and shot up into the sky, piercing a hole in the sky and clearly visible to everyone within a thousand kilometer radius.
Along with this light, a massive thirty zhang long body rushed out. It was the Earth Dragon Yang Kai had released earlier.
The Earth Dragon had been searching for Yuan Magnetic Divine Stones at the foot of the mountain next door, but Yang Kai had not summoned it to join the battle, instead it had rushed out on its own.
However, for some unknown reason, the Earth Dragon’s entire body was covered in wounds, and as it shook its head and swayed its tail, blood splashed across the sky as it let out a mournful cry!
Yang Kai’s eyes narrowed and he couldn’t help turning his head, no longer having the time to find trouble with Old Man Zhu.
Suddenly, a series of swishing sounds rang out as one artifact after another flew out from the ground, as if an invisible hand was grabbing them and throwing them into the changing ray of light.
These artifacts all belonged to the Thunder Light group who had been killed by Yang Kai and the Scarlet Flood Dragon. After they died, these artifacts naturally fell to the ground and no one cared about them.
It wasn’t just these ownerless artifacts, even the artifacts in the hands of those who were still alive were drawn towards this light by an invisible force.
Yang Kai could clearly see that many of the Thunder Light people who were fleeing in all directions had been caught off guard and their artifacts had been sucked away. No matter how hard they tried, they were unable to retrieve their artifacts.
On Scarlet Star’s side, the staff in Guo Ziyan’s hand also trembled non-stop, scaring Guo Ziyan so much that he quickly put it away, his face filled with surprise.
All the artifacts that had been sucked into the light dimmed in just a few breaths of time, losing their spirituality and turning into scrap metal.
“Yuan Magnetic Divine Light!” Yue He cried out as her beautiful eyes stared towards the changing light that soared into the sky. In a moment of carelessness, the little flower umbrella which had lost its vitality instantly returned to its original form and shot towards the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light.
Yue He cried out in alarm, “My umbrella!”
Just as she was about to reach out and grab it, she caught nothing but air and hurriedly summoned her Divine Sense to summon it back. The little flower umbrella was also out of her control, so it was too late to chase after it.
Seeing that her little flower umbrella was about to be taken away by the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light just like the other artifacts, Yue He’s eyes turned red. This little flower umbrella had an extraordinary significance to her and was given to her by a very important person in her life. She had always regarded it as a precious treasure and now that it was damaged, her heart ached for it. Now that she was in danger of losing it, her beautiful face immediately paled.
A figure flashed across her field of vision as a large hand grabbed the little flower umbrella, preventing it from being drawn away by the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light.
Yue He was pleasantly surprised as she stared at the figure in front of her, her heart filled with gratitude.
In mid-air, Yang Kai held the little flower umbrella tightly and frowned slightly. Although he had teleported to block this artifact at the critical moment, he could clearly feel an incredible suction force coming from the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light, attempting to suck away the little flower umbrella in his hand.
This Yuan Magnetic Divine Light was truly strange!
In a flash, he arrived beside Yue He and handed her back the little flower umbrella.
Yue He received it with a smile and bowed, “Thank you, Young Master!”
Not daring to examine it carefully, she quickly put away the little flower umbrella.
Guo Ziyan stared blankly at the Azure Dragon Spear in Yang Kai’s hand, “Sixth Manager, why is your artifact fine?”
Even Yue He’s Small Flower Umbrella had almost been sucked away, but the Azure Dragon Spear in Yang Kai’s hand didn’t move at all. This was truly puzzling.
“How can a pile of scrap metal compare to this King’s Artifact!” Yang Kai snorted, but after hearing Guo Ziyan’s reminder, he realized that his Azure Dragon Spear really hadn’t been affected by the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light.
It seemed that although the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light was powerful, it wasn’t omnipotent. At the very least, a treasure like the Azure Dragon Spear could ignore the power of the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light.
When Guo Ziyan, and the others heard this, they were shocked to find that this Sixth Manager really didn’t give them any face, but when they thought about his heroic appearance just now, they realized he really did have the qualifications.
The Thunder Light group had all fled, leaving behind only a hundred or so badly damaged corpses on the mountain. The thick smell of blood filled the air, and the ground was littered with torn flesh and broken limbs, a testament to the brutality of the previous battle.
Yang Kai ordered, “Clean up the battlefield!”
Guo Ziyan cupped his fists and said, “Yes!” This time, he sincerely accepted the order.
Previously, when he was assigned to work under Yang Kai, Guo Ziyan had only listened to orders and didn’t have much approval for this Sixth Manager. After all, the other party was only an Emperor Realm master while he was already a Second Order Open Heaven Stage master, so how could he be below Yang Kai in the outside world?
However, he had no choice but to obey the orders of the higher up. No matter how he looked at it, he was still somewhat unwilling to accept Yang Kai.
