Zhou Yi said, “Senior Brother, you must be joking. I, Zhou Wu, am an upright and honest man, how could I be possessed by someone else? Senior Brother, why are you spouting such nonsense and slandering me? Are you trying to sow discord so you can take all the benefits of this place for yourself?”
Pei Wenxuan was still staring at Yang Kai suspiciously, but after hearing his words, he suddenly turned his head and a look of shock flashed across his eyes.
“Hahahaha!” Yang Kai couldn’t stop laughing, “You dare say you weren’t possessed? Let’s see how you’re going to argue now!”
Zhou Yi frowned as he looked at Yang Kai and then at Pei Wenxuan before quickly coming to a realization, “What flaw did this King reveal?” From Pei Wenxuan’s expression, Zhou Yi could tell that he had been exposed. Since that was the case, he couldn’t be bothered to pretend anymore.
Pei Wenxuan smacked his lips and said, “The owner of this body is called Zhou Yi, not Zhou Wu!”
Zhou Yi nodded slightly and looked at Yang Kai approvingly, “Junior’s thinking is profound and quick-witted, as expected, there will always be geniuses in this world!” This boy’s words just now had been flawless, but in the end, he had revealed Zhou Wu’s name, causing him to think that the body he had taken over was really named Zhou Wu, so he had simply followed his words. Who would have thought that it was actually this boy’s probing words?
From the looks of it, even after his sneak attack, Yang Kai wasn’t too sure about his own judgment, so he had tried to probe him. Although it was just a simple sentence, it required a sharp mind.
This little brat’s Soul was extremely powerful, and he also had a World Treasure like the Soul Warming Lotus. If he really grew up, it would be incredible. If he wanted to kill him, he had to do so as soon as possible. If he were too late, he might not be able to defeat him.
“Your business has nothing to do with this Pei. This Pei has some important matters to attend to, so I’ll take my leave first,” Pei Wenxuan said before flying out of the hall.
The sudden appearance of this Black Crow Divine Monarch gave him a very bad feeling. Although the other party was only a remnant soul and had just taken over a body, it was unknown how much strength he could display, he was still a Divine Monarch, so there was no good reason for him to remain here, so he decisively retreated.
Yang Kai was dumbfounded. These people from Myriad Demons Heaven were simply too unreliable. At a time like this, he still wanted to act alone, anxiously saying, “Brother Pei, do you think that with things having reached this point, you can still remain uninvolved? If I were Black Crow Divine Monarch, everyone here would die today, otherwise how could I hide my secrets?”
“Junior knows me well!” Originally Zhou Yi, now Black Crow Divine Monarch nodded approvingly at this moment. With a wave of his hand, the entire hall suddenly buzzed and closed.
Pei Wenxuan’s footsteps came to a halt, his expression somewhat ugly as he tilted his head towards Black Crow Divine Monarch, “Old thing, you should be happy when I don’t provoke you, I’m afraid you’ll end up in a tragedy!”
Black Crow Divine Monarch chuckled, “Are all the juniors nowadays so arrogant? Very good, very good, this world is more interesting, it won’t make this King feel bored!”
As he spoke, his body suddenly shook as an inexplicable attractive force burst forth from him. Immediately after, a series of muffled groans rang out as the blood mist surrounding the skeleton roiled, transforming into a blood dragon that rushed towards Black Crow Divine Monarch and poured into his body. Zhou Yi’s body seemed to have become a bottomless pit that swallowed all the blood energy.
He couldn’t help showing a look of ecstasy on his face, as if he was enjoying a wonderful experience. As he did so, these people’s vitality rapidly fell and their flesh withered.
They were already in a state of Qi Deviation and did not have the slightest ability to resist. Black Crow Divine Monarch must have used a Secret Technique of the Blood Shine Scripture, so how could these people resist?
Yang Kai and Qu Huachang felt their scalps go numb.
Although they had previously comprehended the first part of the Blood Shine Scripture, it was only a cultivation technique of the Blood Shine Scripture and did not contain any Secret Techniques. Now that they had seen Black Crow Divine Monarch’s methods, they understood just how brutal the Blood shine Scripture was.
This is definitely an evil technique! However, it was not difficult to understand. Blood Monster Divine Monarch was not a kind person when he was alive, so the Blood Shine Scripture he cultivated was naturally not a peaceful technique.
What made Yang Kai even more uneasy was that following Black Crow Divine Monarch’s actions, his aura began to rise. Originally, although Zhou Yi was an elite disciple of the Great Thousand Blood Land, he wasn’t very strong, but after being possessed by Black Crow Divine Monarch, Yang Kai instinctively felt a sense of oppression from him.
Someone who could cultivate to the High Rank Open Heaven was not an easy character to deal with. Now that he had obtained an inheritance like the Blood Shine Scripture, all kinds of unimaginable methods had made him even stronger.
Yang Kai couldn’t allow him to continue like this. This was definitely the best time to act. He had just taken possession and the fusion of his Soul and physical body wasn’t going to be easy. In addition, Zhou Yi’s foundation was limited, so he was at his weakest right now. If he were to devour all of their Blood Qi, he would definitely become stronger.
“Attack!” A low shout rang out, it was Pei Wenxuan who took the initiative to attack. He had obviously thought of what Yang Kai could think of. As soon as he finished speaking, he pushed his hands forward and a huge pitch-black cone broke through space and shot towards Black Crow Divine Monarch. This pitch-black cone was completely formed from pure Demonic Qi, and as it spun, it seemed to be able to tear space itself.
This wasn’t the end of it. Immediately after this cone, Pei Wenxuan pounced forward like a cheetah, his hand forming claw as he grabbed towards Black Crow Divine Monarch. These claw each contained the power of the five elements, Gold, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth, forming a simple cycle of the five elements which greatly increased their power.
Yang Kai’s reaction was also extremely fast. In other words, even if Pei Wenxuan didn’t make a move, Yang Kai was determined to do so. Black Crow Divine Monarch had broken into his Knowledge Sea and pried into many of his secrets, exposing the Soul Warming Lotus as well. This fellow would definitely not let him off and would definitely try to seize the Soul Warming Lotus. His damaged remnant soul needed this World Treasure to restore itself.
With a wave of his hands, the giant moonblade formed and slashed towards Black Crow Divine Monarch.
Qu Huachang flicked her hair and the red string that bound her long hair spread out, transforming into a streak of red light that shot towards Black Crow Divine Monarch's chest.
Whether it was Yang Kai, Pei Wenxuan, or Qu Huachang, none of them were ordinary Emperor Realm. The latter two were core disciples of the 36 Cave Heaven, each of them standing at the peak of the Emperor Realm, with few opponents below Open Heaven.
There was no need to mention Yang Kai, he had even killed several Low Rank Open Heaven masters.
Even Black Crow Divine Monarch couldn’t help being moved by the combined might of these three. He couldn’t help nodding and praising, “Not bad, not bad, you three little brats are quite good. In time, you will definitely achieve great things!”
Although he was praising them, his eyes were filled with contempt. Facing the combined attack of these three, he didn’t retreat and instead took a step forward, staring at Yang Kai and shouting, “Junior is too arrogant, do you think this place is your Knowledge Sea?”
In Yang Kai’s Knowledge Sea, he had suffered a great loss. He was originally just a remnant soul, but in the end, he had been forced to escape. But now that he had obtained a physical body, with his former Seventh Order Open Heaven foundation, even if his strength was less than a tenth of his peak, how could he fear three mere Emperor Realm?
As soon as he took that step, a thick stench of blood filled the hall, as if a mountain of corpses and a sea of blood was rushing towards the three of them. Whether it was Yang Kai, Pei Wenxuan, or Qu Huachang, both of them couldn’t help feeling their aura stagnate, as if they were unable to resist.
The Demonic Qi cone smashed into Black Crow Divine Monarch’s body, but it didn’t have any effect. Three inches away from him, it was blocked by the thick Blood Qi. Although Yang Kai’s moonblade had torn through Black Crow Divine Monarch’s defences, after being enveloped by the Blood Qi, its speed was greatly reduced, allowing him to easily dodge it. Qu Huachang’s red rope was even worse. After falling into the Blood Qi, it immediately flashed violently and lost its spirituality, shocking her so much that she quickly withdrew it.
When the three of them combined their attacks, even a Low Rank Open Heaven wouldn’t dare ignore them, but they were easily blocked by Black Crow Divine Monarch.
At the same time, the Blood Qi of the other cultivators had been completely devoured by Black Crow Divine Monarch, all of them becoming shriveled corpses. Even after they died, these people still didn’t know what had happened to them.
Those who were able to arrive here were all the top disciples of the various great forces, the cream of the crop among their generation. Naturally, their vitality was incomparably vigorous, and after receiving such nourishment, Black Crow Divine Monarch’s aura rapidly rose to a terrifying degree.
Although he did not have the aura of an Open Heaven Stage master, the intensity of Black Crow Divine Monarch’s aura at this moment was not any weaker than a Mid Rank Open Heaven master’s. In other words, at this moment, he was like a Mid rank Open Heaven master who could not use the power of Open Heaven!
Their hearts sank!
If that was the case, there was no way they could fight. Even though Black Crow Divine Monarch was unable to use his Open Heaven power because of Zhou Yi’s own foundation, he still had a High Rank Open Heaven foundation, so it was impossible to say how much strength he could display.
[Hoogs: Hmm, his condition should be the same with the Open Heaven in Great Ruins Boundary, who couldn't use their World Force. Suddenly YK can't fight?]
The Blood Qi in his body roiled, making it look like the Black Crow Divine Monarch was shrouded by a cloud of blood, saying to Yang Kai, “Junior, since you dare act so presumptuous, I’ll cut you down first!”
Saying so, he suddenly waved his hand and sent a rain of blood towards Yang Kai. This rain of blood didn’t seem special, but it obviously contained a great power.
Yang Kai’s figure flashed as he dodged the rain of blood.
However, under his perception, Black Crow Divine Monarch ignored him after a single move and suddenly reached out from the blood mist towards Pei Wenxuan.
This old man was extremely sinister and cunning, even facing three juniors, he still wanted to play a trick!
Thinking about it, Black Crow Divine Monarch coveted Yang Kai’s Soul Warming Lotus, so how could he easily kill him? He must have planned to capture him alive and then take the Soul Warming Lotus for himself.
Since he didn’t want to kill Yang Kai yet, he could only act against Pei Wenxuan and Qu Huachang. The former had taken the initiative to attack him just now, so he must have been bearing a grudge.
Not only did Yang Kai not expect Black Crow Divine Monarch to act in such a manner, even Pei Wenxuan did not expect it. In the blink of an eye, a large hand wrapped tightly around his neck and a layer of dark red blood energy quickly spread out from it, enveloping Pei Wenxuan.
