The blood-colored lake, the stone tablet by the lake, the gathering of cultivators, and even more people rushing towards this place from all directions who should have heard the news here or noticed the strange movements here.
In addition, Yang Kai also discovered that there were three small islands in the lake, each of which was more than a thousand zhang apart, situated right next to the palace in the middle of the lake.
In other words, if one wanted to go to the palace in the middle of the lake, they could use these three small islands as a foothold.
However, although there were many people gathered on the shore at this moment, none of them attempted to head to the palace in the middle of the lake. Most of them were gathered under the stone tablet. Some stood with their hands behind their backs, some sat cross-legged, and some were shaking their heads, not knowing what they were doing.
“Hahaha, Blood Monster Divine Palace!” A burst of laughter suddenly rang out as a burly figure flew over from the distance, heading straight towards the palace in the middle of the lake, shouting arrogantly, “This Blood Monster Inheritance belongs to this one, all of you stand aside!”
Yang Kai turned his head and saw the man rushing across the blood-colored lake towards the first island closest to the shore. However, before he could fly far, the blood-colored lake, which was like a pool of stagnant water, suddenly swept up a wave and crashed towards the cultivator.
The cultivator shouted angrily and immediately activated his Emperor Qi to protect himself, his body flashing with a brilliant light as a violent energy fluctuation spread out.
This guy was actually a Half Open Heaven cultivator who had condensed a Fifth Grade Forces and was only a step away from breaking through. Such a foundation was quite impressive, and as long as he didn’t fall in the process of breaking through, he would definitely become a great hero.
However, this burly cultivator didn’t even have the slightest ability to resist the blood-colored waves. As the waves washed over him, the layers of defences on his body rapidly melted like ice under a blazing sun, not even lasting a breath.
The man’s face went pale with fright, but before he could do anything, he was drenched in blood.
With this sudden change, how could he not know what kind of restriction he had activated? For a moment, he was drenched in cold sweat and didn’t dare move.
As the waves subsided, the bloody lake returned to its calm state, as if what had just happened was just an illusion.
“Hahaha! I’m fine!” The man suddenly burst into laughter again, because after waiting for a moment, he was completely unscathed. He had thought he had triggered some kind of restriction and was in grave danger, but in the end, he had been thinking too much.
“Idiot!” On the shore of the lake, someone stared at him coldly with disdain and ridicule.
Yang Kai also found this strange. Since this person had been drenched in blood, how could he be completely unharmed? Just as he was puzzled, he heard this person say, “This place’s restriction has been in disrepair for many years and has probably lost its effectiveness, yet you’re still acting so cautiously. It’s simply laughable. Wait until I obtain the Divine Monarch Inheritance!”
Saying so, he flew towards the small island in the lake.
However, just as he was about to take action, a series of cries rang out from the shore of the lake, and many of the women present wore looks of horror on their faces as they covered their red lips with their hands, their beautiful eyes widening as if they had just witnessed an extremely terrifying scene.
Yang Kai’s eyes also narrowed as he stared at the person on the lake.
As the man rushed forward, the flesh on his body began to peel off and fall into the lake. In the blink of an eye, his head had become a skull, and his entire body was covered in blood and flesh.
However, this person didn’t seem to feel anything and continued forward, causing everyone who saw him to feel a chill run down their spines.
A moment later, the man who had transformed into a skeleton fell into the blood lake and was swallowed up without a sound, as if nothing had happened.
“Blood Monster Divine Monarch was an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. Even if the barrier he planted in his life has been in disrepair for many years, how could it be ignored by any cats and dog?” The cultivator who had called the man an ‘idiot’ sneered. Obviously, this was not the first time this person had seen such a situation. There must have been someone who had suffered a loss on this Blood Lake, otherwise it would have been impossible for so many people to gather here and remain indifferent to this palace.
Yang Kai turned his head to look in that direction and couldn’t help narrowing his eyes, because he discovered that this person who spoke had a thick Demonic Qi surrounding him, giving him a very familiar feeling.
Thinking about it carefully, he had once felt this feeling from the Great Demon God.
Was this guy from Myriad Demon Heaven? Yang Kai thought to himself. According to what he knew, Great Demon God Mo Sheng was most likely from Myriad Demon Heaven!
Perhaps sensing Yang Kai’s gaze, the Myriad Demon Heaven disciple turned his head and grinned, “Boy, what are you looking at? Do you want to die?”
Yang Kai smiled slightly and quietly shifted his gaze away. It wasn’t that he was afraid of him, it was just that he was too lazy to get into a conflict with him.
Unexpectedly, the other party didn’t give up and instead stared at Yang Kai from head to toe, a look of interest appearing on his face. His figure flickered and he suddenly appeared ten meters away from Yang Kai, rubbing his chin as he said, “Boy, I’ve noticed that you look quite like a person.”
Yang Kai turned around and asked lightly, “Does Senior Brother have any advice for me?”
The Myriad Demon Heaven Disciple stared at him seriously and nodded repeatedly, “It really is you!” As he said the last word, his body suddenly surged with Demonic Qi and he raised his hand to slap Yang Kai. In his palm, a Sixth Grade force surged out and formed a vortex, seemingly wanting to drag Yang Kai inside and kill him.
Just as Yang Kai was about to counterattack, Bu Lianzhong and the other four had already gathered their strength and rushed out from behind Yang Kai. The five of them seemed to have formed a strange formation in an instant as their strength converged on Bu Lianzhong’s body and they raised their palms to meet him.
With a loud bang, the Myriad Demon Heaven disciple’s Demonic Qi surged and he was forced back several steps, causing Bu Lianzhong and the others to let out muffled groans and retreat.
This battle was actually evenly matched.
However, Bu Lianzhong had relied on this mysterious force to gather the strength of his fellow disciples, while this Myriad Demon Heaven Disciple was alone. From this, it could be seen that the strength of Bu Lianzhong and the others was far inferior to this Myriad Demon Heaven Disciple.
“Great Battle Heaven?” The Myriad Demon Heaven Disciple stared coldly at Bu Lianzhong and the others, “Are you looking to die? You dare interfere in my business? If you dare to act again, I’ll slaughter you all!”
Bu Lianzhong said in a low voice, “I’ve long heard that Myriad Demon Heaven disciples are the most self-centered in the world, not putting anyone in their eyes. I thought it was exaggerated, but now it seems that was true! Senior Brother Pei, although you’re outstanding, us fellow disiciples are not to be trifled with.”
The Myriad Demon Heaven disciple tilted his head, “You recognize me?”
Bu Lianzhong said seriously, “Myriad Demon Heaven’s Senior Brother Pei Wenxuan, how could I not recognize you?”
His words sounded like he was answering a question, but in reality, he was explaining this person’s origin to Yang Kai.
Pei Wenxuan grinned, revealing a mouthful of snow white fangs as he looked towards Bu Lianzhong with approval, “You recognize me yet still dare to speak to me like this, the people of Great Battle Heaven are truly daring! However, with your abilities, it’s still not enough to stop me. The same with your Eldest Senior Brother, if you don’t want to die, scram!”
Bu Lianzhong and the others were, after all, Great Battle Heaven’s Disciples. If he could kill them in private, it wouldn’t be a problem as long as the news didn’t leak out. But with so many people watching, killing Bu Lianzhong and the others would be troublesome, and Great Battle Heaven’s people weren’t to be trifled with.
“What if you add me?” A soft voice rang out, and as soon as the words left the mouth, a sweet fragrance filled the air and a beautiful figure appeared in front of Yang Kai.
The young woman’s figure was graceful, her appearance enchanting, her full chest attracting the attention of others, her blue hair casually tied behind her head with a red string, her beautiful eyes seemingly capable of drawing one’s soul away, her every frown and smile emitting an endless charm. This woman was like a blooming flower, dazzling to the eyes.
Many of the surrounding cultivators cried out in alarm. This was truly an enchanting woman. Their eyes were like leeches as it bit this woman’s body, secretly swallowing their saliva.
Many of the cultivators who had been pinched by their Junior Sister couldn’t help letting out a muffled groan as they shifted their gazes away, grabbing onto their Junior Sister’s small hands to apologize.
“Senior Sister Qu?” Yang Kai called out in surprise.
He hadn’t expected to encounter someone he knew in such a place. Although the number of people who had entered Blood Monster Cave Heaven this time was not small and the entire 3000 Worlds had been swept away, there should be people he knew here, but Blood Monster Cave Heaven was too big, so the chances of encountering them were too small.
Who knew they would meet so soon?
Yin-Yang Cave Heaven's Qu Huachang! Yang Kai still remembered this woman clearly. She was the only woman who could discuss the Yin-Yang Union Cultivation with him, yet she still had a serious look on her face as they discuss about it.
Although Su Yan had cultivated together with him countless times, she had never discussed such matters with him. She was shy when Yang Kai said such things, so how could she discuss such things with him?
“Qu Huachang!” Pei Wenxuan’s eyes turned cold.
He didn’t know Bu Lianzhong and the others because although Bu Lianzhong and the others were good, they weren’t at his level yet. Qu Huachang, on the other hand, had become a core disciple of Yin-Yang Cave Heaven after emerging from the Great Ruins Boundary and had been heavily nurtured. It could be said that her future achievements wouldn’t be inferior to his.
“Senior Brother Pei!” Qu Huachang bowed respectfully, “It’s been many years since we last met, but Senior Brother Pei is still so arrogant.”
Pei Wenxuan coldly snorted, his eyes shifting between Yang Kai and her as he said, “Do you know who he is? Why are you so anxious to stand up for him?”
Qu Huachang smiled, “I’ve known Junior Brother Yang for more than ten years, so I naturally know who he is.”
Pei Wenxuan couldn’t help sneering as he suddenly thought of something and grinned, “Interesting, interesting, your Yin-Yang Cave Heaven is playing this kind of trick again, but if you want to protect him, you’d better watch carefully. I’m not the only one who wants to kill him.”
Qu Huachang smiled back at him, thinking that this idiot must have never seen Yang Kai’s strength before to dare boast so shamelessly. Unlike others, she had spent some time with Yang Kai in the Great Ruins Boundary, so she was well aware of his strength. Even though she came from one of the 36 Cavev Heaven, she had to admit that below the Open Heaven Stage, in the entire 3000 Worlds, there was almost no one who could match him.
Even this Pei Wenxuan in front of her wouldn’t be able to withstand a single blow from Yang Kai.
