This Black Crow Divine Monarch had already said that he had thoroughly comprehended the Blood Shine Scripture, so how could there still be the various tests of the Blood Dao Inheritance?
“That’s right, if it weren’t for that, how could I have found someone suitable for this old master’s possession?” Black Crow Divine Monarch readily admitted, “The many trials here were indeed set up by Blood Monster Old Man when he was alive, but this old master used some kind of method to teleport him here. This old master was originally interested in another boy. This boy seems to have a Blood Dao foundation, so if I can seize his body, this old master will be able to save a lot of time and effort, but… your vitality is a bit too vigorous. If I can seize your body, this old master will be able to cultivate the Blood Shine Scripture twice as fast with half the effort. Boy, if you want to blame someone, blame your bad luck for appearing in front of this old master at this time.”
The person he was referring to was definitely Zhou Yi from the Great Thousand Blood Land. Of all the people who had come to this palace, only he had a Blood Dao foundation.
From Black Crow Divine Monarch’s words, Yang Kai learned that the various tests here were indeed set up by Blood Monster Divine Monarch in order to inherit his Blood Dao Cultivation Technique, but Black Crow Divine Monarch had used some kind of method to teleport him here.
For a dead person to have such great ability, these Divine Monarchs were indeed strong.
While Yang Kai was still in a state of shock, the aura from the gray fog suddenly increased dramatically, followed by an invisible Divine Soul attack.
Yang Kai was caught off guard and was struck by this blow, causing his Divine Soul to become unstable and his mind to tremble. His entire Knowledge Sea began to tremble and even his Soul Avatar nearly collapsed.
This old man… had been hiding his strength all this time! Yang Kai was shocked. Previously, when he saw Black Crow Divine Monarch being cut down by the Soul Slaying Blade, he had thought that this old man was nothing special, but now that he had suddenly released such a terrifying attack, Yang Kai realized that he had been hiding something all this time to catch him off guard.
Thinking about it, he was a Divine Monarch after all, so how could he only have this little trick up his sleeve? If that was the case, he wouldn’t even be able to break through his Knowledge Sea’s defences, let alone attempt to possess him.
“Hahaha!” Black Crow Divine Monarch laughed madly as the scattered gray fog gathered once more, pouncing towards Yang Kai like a fierce tiger, “Junior, why do you think this old master is so kind as to say all this to you? It’s just to distract you. Youngsters these days really don’t know the immensity of heaven and earth, but don’t worry, after this old master seizes your body, I will definitely treat it well. If you have any unfulfilled wishes, you can tell this old master, and this old master will satisfy it for you!”
In just a few words, he had arrived in front of Yang Kai and was about to wrap him up.
At this moment, Yang Kai’s turbid eyes suddenly became clear again, and as he retreated, he shouted, “This little brat appreciates Senior’s kind intentions, but I will fulfill my own wish, so there is no need for Senior to worry about me. Slash!”
The Soul Slaying Blade once again erupted with blade light and slashed down towards the gray fog.
“You…” Black Crow Divine Monarch’s tone was filled with disbelief. Although he was only a remnant soul now and could only display a limited amount of power, he was still the remnant soul of a Divine Monarch, so how could a mere Emperor Realm master resist it? But the situation in front of him was that he had recovered in an extremely short amount of time, causing his plan to fail.
Yang Kai didn’t give him a chance to get close, and after suffering such a loss, he no longer dared to underestimate his opponent. As the blade light slashed down, Yang Kai reached out with one hand and summoned his Soul, shouting, “Life Lotus!”
A lotus flower suddenly appeared from the gray fog, a pure white flower bud that was incomparably tender, as if it had been blown apart by the wind. However, this flower bud was madly absorbing the Soul Energy contained within the gray fog. Using this force, the flower quickly bloomed, its petals folding up!
“Ah…” Black Crow Divine Monarch's angry cry rang out from within the gray fog.
Although the Life Lotus Secret Technique consumed a lot of energy, once it was used, it would use the opponent’s Soul Energy as nutrients, allowing the lotus to bloom with infinite power.
If an opponent of the same level suffered such a blow, their Soul would immediately be severely damaged, but Black Crow Divine Monarch could not be judged by common sense. Therefore, after Yang Kai used the Life Lotys, he suddenly clenched his fist and shouted, “Furious Lotus!”
Another giant lotus flower appeared and wrapped the gray fog around the stamen, almost completely opposite to the one the Life Lotus Secret Technique was displaying. The giant lotus flower quickly closed up and transformed into a flower bud that wrapped the gray fog around it, causing it to sink into endless darkness.
With a loud bang, a massive force burst out from the flower, causing the entire lotus flower to break apart and the gray fog to rush out aggressively. Black Crow Divine Monarch angrily shouted, “Junior, you still want to resist? In front of this old master, how can you be so presumptuous!”
It wasn’t until this moment that he finally displayed his true strength. His initial display of strength was only to numb Yang Kai’s nerves and make it easier for him to seize his body. After all, he didn’t have much strength left in this remnant soul of his, so he had to conserve it. Otherwise, if he didn’t seize Yang Kai’s body first, wouldn’t it be a joke?
The aura of Black Crow Divine Monarch, which was no longer hidden, suddenly rose sharply, becoming more than twice as strong as before. The Soul Slaying Blade did not have much effect on him, only slashing out from the gray fog, but it did not slow him down in the slightest.
On the other hand, Yang Kai’s expression remained unchanged, his expression calm as he waved his hand towards the gray fog and shouted, “Life Lotus!”
“Scoundrel!” Black Crow Divine Monarch was exasperated. He had just been hit by this Divine Soul Secret Technique once, and from the height he had reached in the past, although its power wasn’t great, it had some effect. The weakness of this Divine Soul Secret Technique was related to the cultivation of the person who used it. Black Crow Divine Monarch believed that once this boy’s cultivation increased, the power of this Divine Soul Secret Technique would continue to increase.
The gray fog dispersed on its own, transforming into wisps of gray smoke, seemingly trying to avoid the Life Lotus Secret Technique, but this was Yang Kai’s Knowledge Sea. Yang Kai was extremely sensitive to any changes, so how could he avoid it?
As soon as the flower bud appeared, the lotus flower blossomed, causing Black Crow Divine Monarch to let out another miserable cry, but he did not stop, enduring the pain in his Divine Soul as he pounced towards Yang Kai, determined to seize his body.
Black Crow Divine Monarch was enraged, “Junior, do you only know these two moves?”
As soon as his voice fell, he was completely wrapped up by the giant lotus flower. Although he quickly broke free from it, it gave Yang Kai some time to catch his breath and once again put some distance between them.
“It’s not new, but it's useful!” As Yang Kai fled, he observed Black Crow Divine Monarch’s changes, and what he saw made his heart sink. After all, this was a Divine Monarch’s remnant soul. Since Black Crow Divine Monarch appeared, he had eaten at least a hundred Soul Slashing Blades and had been hit by two Life Lotus and Furious Lotus Secret Techniques, but the gray fog didn’t seem to have changed much. In other words, the damage he had suffered was quite limited.
Black Crow Divine Monarch was about to explode from anger!
Originally, he had thought that seizing this body would be an easy task, but who would have thought that even after all the twists and turns he had gone through, he would still be unable to succeed. Black Crow Divine Monarch faintly felt that something was wrong, but at this moment, he could not afford to think too much about it and immediately rushed towards Yang Kai.
These two self-created Divine Soul Secret Techniques were used one after another. The former was used to attack the enemy while the latter was used to trap the enemy. Within his Knowledge Sea, the two Souls continued to chase each other, a life and death struggle taking place.
At first, Black Crow Divine Monarch was still shouting angrily, but later on, he stopped shouting and simply said coldly, “Junior, I want to see how long you can last. Using such a Divine Soul Secret Technique will put quite a strain on your body, and the power of your Knowledge Sea will dry up sooner or later. At that time, I want to see how you can resist this old master! After this old master takes your body, I will definitely kill all of your family and friends, sell your women to the lowest grade brothels, and have them receive guests every day!”
Yang Kai was furious, “Old bastard, you’re courting death!”
Black Crow Divine Monarch grinned maliciously, “This old master gave you a chance, but you didn’t cherish it, so who can you blame? A mere Emperor Realm dares…”
Black Crow Divine Monarch’s words suddenly came to a halt, and even the gray fog that had been chasing after Yang Kai suddenly stopped, as if it had sensed something and silently scanned its surroundings before exclaiming, “No, that’s impossible! You’re just an Emperor Realm, how could you have such a powerful Soul?”
Now he finally knew what was wrong. He had only been focused on seizing Yang Kai's body and hadn’t thought too much about it until now. How could an Emperor Realm be so powerful? The strength of this person’s Divine Soul was comparable to some Low Rank Open Heaven.
This wasn’t the most important part. The most important part was that after using so many Divine Soul Attacks, this boy’s Knowledge Sea should have been somewhat exhausted. Even if it hadn’t dried up, it should have at least weakened by half.
However, at this moment, Yang Kai’s Knowledge Sea was extremely rich, showing no signs of drying up. He was still at his peak.
“You’re not an Emperor Realm?” Black Crow Divine Monarch seemed to have been bitten by a poisonous snake, his voice becoming sharp.
The anger on Yang Kai’s face instantly disappeared as he floated above his Knowledge Sea and stared at him indifferently, “Divine Monarch must be joking. If I’m not an Emperor Realm, what else can I be? I’m an Emperor Realm!”
“Junior still wants to deceive me. How could an Emperor Realm master possess such powerful Divine Soul? How could he not suffer any damage after using so many Divine Soul Attacks?” Saying so, Black Crow Divine Monarch seemed to notice something, “Wait, there’s something strange about your Knowledge Sea!”
An attack suddenly shot out from the gray fog towards his Knowledge Sea.
The seawater roiled, revealing a Seven Colored Treasure Island hidden below. A strange aura immediately spread out from the Seven Colored Treasure Island. It was extremely profound and seemed to contain some kind of Great Dao.
“This is…” Black Crow Divine Monarch stared fixedly at the Seven Colored Treasure Island, then as if he had just discovered something incredible, he cried out in alarm, “Soul Warming Lotus, Seven Colored Soul Warming Lotus!”
“Divine Monarch is knowledgeable and have sharp eyes, this little brat admires you!” Yang Kai said lightly and waved his hand, causing the Seven Colored Treasure Island to fly out from his Knowledge Sea, transforming into a seven colored lotus flower that blossomed with a dense light and floated beneath his feet. Since he had already been discovered, there was no need for him to hide it anymore, so he simply showed it to him openly as a form of deterrence.
