Pei Wenxuan had mixed feelings.
Yang Kai defeating Yu Luocha in the Asura Arena wasn’t something he had never heard of before. In fact, after the incident occurred, it was quickly spread to many people who were interested.
However, Pei Wenxuan didn’t really believe this, because he was well aware of Yu Luocha’s abilities. Although Yu Luocha might not be as good as him, she wasn’t far off either. Core disciples like them who came from the various Cave Heaven paradise, even if they encountered a Low Rank Open Heaven, they would still be able to exchange a few blows.
Defeating Yu Luocha at the same level was either a sneak attack or Yu Luocha had underestimated her opponent too much.
When he had seen Yang Kai at the Blood Lake, he had intended to fight him, but he had been stopped by Qu Huachang.
He was quite unwilling to accept this, but now it seemed that it was fortunate that Qu Huachang had intervened, otherwise he would have been the one to lose face.
Facing Black Crow Divine Monarch’s attack, he had almost no strength to fight back and was barely able to exchange a few blows with him, even crippling his own Dragon Twisting Scissors, yet Yang Kai was able to fight with him in such a fierce manner. The gap between them was obvious.
This kind of ability was simply unheard of, and defeating Yu Luocha in one move was no exaggeration.
He had always thought highly of himself, but at this moment, he couldn’t help feeling somewhat disappointed.
Inside the spacious hall, the Blood Crows flew about, their cries disturbing everyone’s hearing. The Yuan Magnetic Divine Light shone brilliantly as the Sixth Grade Gold Element force struck the countless Blood Crows until they couldn’t even get close. The Blood Crows that broke through their defences were also killed by Qu Huachang and Pei Wenxuan.
Every Blood Crow that was killed would transform into a wisp of blood energy and dissipate into the hall.
Suddenly, the thousands of Blood Crows gathered together again, twisting and fusing together, returning to their original forms. However, compared to before, Black Crow Divine Monarch’s complexion was slightly pale and his aura was no longer at its peak. It was obvious that he had suffered heavy injuries and his eyes were filled with hatred.
“Kill!” Yang Kai turned the gourd around and immediately sent out his Yuan Magnetic Divine Light towards Black Crow Divine Monarch.
At the same time, Yang Kai grabbed the Azure Dragon Spear in his hand and charged towards Black Crow Divine Monarch.
Seeing this, Qu Huachang and Pei Wenxuan also quickly followed. Both of them were people who knew how to grasp opportunities, and Black Crow Divine Monarch’s aura was clearly weak at this moment. How could they miss this opportunity to beat up a drowning dog?
Three figures surrounded Black Crow Divine Monarch from three different directions. Yang Kai was the main attacker while Pei Wenxuan and Qu Huachang were supporting him from the left and right, not bothering with Black Crow Divine Monarch at all, only taking action when there was an opportunity. With the combined strength of the three of them, the battle with Black Crow Divine Monarch instantly became heated.
However, the more they fought, the more shocked the three became.
At this moment, Black Crow Divine Monarch’s strength had obviously fallen greatly, but he was still able to fight evenly with the three of them. It was obvious just how strong he was before. Fortunately, the three of them had used various methods to wear down his vitality, otherwise it would have been difficult to fight.
Inside the tightly shut hall, the light of Secret Techniques and Artifacts flashed as a series of muffled groans rang out. Whether it was Black Crow Divine Monarch or Yang Kai’s trio, all of them were covered in wounds in less than ten minutes.
Black Crow Divine Monarch’s Blood Shine Scripture was a big problem. His body was injured, his vitality had fallen slightly, but even the most serious fatal injury was unable to kill him. However, if Yang Kai and the other two were injured, the blood in their wounds seemed to be drawn by some kind of force, transforming into a bloody mist that rushed towards Black Crow Divine Monarch and disappeared into his body, transforming into his own strength.
Yang Kai had the Wood Element energy condensed from the essence of the Eternal Tree, and he also had the Dragon Clan’s bloodline, so his healing ability was extremely powerful. His wounds would heal in no time, so the Blood Shine Scripture’s interference was the least of his worries, but Pei Wenxuan and Qu Huachang couldn’t. In this short period of time, they had lost a great deal of their Blood Qi, causing their faces to pale.
However, at this moment, no one dared to back down, because the three of them knew that in today’s battle, either one of them would die, and any carelessness or cowardice could lead to a disastrous outcome.
“Kill!” Yang Kai’s shout echoed throughout the hall as he thrust out his spear, causing the Space Laws to fluctuate wildly. This spear ignored the obstruction of space and directly stabbed towards Black Crow Divine Monarch’s head.
Black Crow Divine Monarch’s eyes narrowed slightly as he raised his hands and pushed out a wave of Blood Qi.
With a loud bang, Yang Kai was sent flying while Black Crow Divine Monarch was also sent flying. In mid-air, Black Crow Divine Monarch gently turned around and landed on the ground, glaring at Yang Kai with hatred in his eyes, “Junior, just you wait. When this King replenishes my strength, I’ll fight you again!”
Saying so, he turned around and shot out a beam of profound light.
Yang Kai’s heart jumped as he quickly stopped his retreat and shouted, “He wants to run, stop him!”
When Pei Wenxuan and Qu Huachang heard this, they didn’t dare to delay and quickly used their Secret Techniques to attack Black Crow Divine Monarch, but Black Crow Divine Monarch didn’t care and simply endured their attacks, spitting out a mouthful of blood as his back became a blur.
With a rumbling sound, the door that had been shut all this time suddenly opened, and before it could fully open, Black Crow Divine Monarch transformed into a streak of blood light and rushed out.
Seeing this, Yang Kai and the other two’s hearts went cold!
It had to be known that outside this great hall, the small islands and the shores of the Blood Lake were filled with hundreds and thousands of cultivators. Black Crow Divine Monarch had a heaven-defying evil technique like the Blood Shine Scripture, so as long as he could kill some people and swallow their Blood Qi, he would be able to restore to his original state. At that time, how could the three of them resist?
“The door is open!” A voice suddenly called out from outside the hall. It was obvious that while the three of them were fighting with Black Crow Divine Monarch, someone had already arrived at the palace in the middle of the lake. However, the door was tightly shut and the cultivators who had come to the palace were unable to enter. Now that the door had suddenly opened, everyone was naturally pleasantly surprised.
Yang Kai raised his spear and chased after him.
After running a few steps, Yang Kai heard a few miserable screams coming from outside the hall. When Yang Kai rushed out of the hall, he saw three corpses lying at the entrance of the hall. All of them had died miserable deaths, their blood energy had dried up, and all of them had become skeletons.
Cultivators who could reach the palace at the center of the lake were definitely geniuses, but under Black Crow Divine Monarch’s sneak attack, who could resist? They were instantly killed.
Yang Kai’s eyes nearly popped out of their sockets as a strong sense of crisis engulfed him. Looking up, he saw Black Crow Divine Monarch speeding across the blood lake. On the surface of the blood lake, there were a few cultivators who were walking carefully, seemingly thinking about the palace at the center of the lake.
Sensing the movement in front of them, they looked up and saw Black Crow Divine Monarch coming towards them, all of them shocked. After all, this blood lake could only be entered but not retreated. Someone had tried to retreat but died on the spot, so why was this person completely unharmed?
While they were still confused, Black Crow Divine Monarch had already raised his hand and shot out a few streaks of blood light. These cultivators were already treading on thin ice and most of their attention was focused on maintaining the circulation of the Blood Shine Scripture. Facing such an attack, they were simply unable to resist.
The bloody light arrived in the blink of an eye and enveloped the cultivators. The cultivators who were enveloped by the bloody light began to bleed profusely as their Blood Essence was quickly drained. When the bloody light returned to Black Crow Divine Monarch’s body, all of them were reduced to bones and fell into the blood lake.
“Zhou Yi, how dare you snatch someone else’s Blood Essence and commit such a disgraceful act? You’ll definitely suffer the wrath of the Heavens!” Someone shouted angrily, probably knowing Zhou Yi.
Black Crow Divine Monarch remained indifferent and simply waved his hand towards the man, sending out a bloody light. The man roared and summoned his artifact to resist.
“Run! This man isn’t Zhou Yi, he’s a Divine Monarch that has been reincarnated!” Yang Kai shouted, his voice echoing throughout the surrounding area.
Everyone was shocked.
At this moment, several more people were struck and their blood essence was greatly drained as they died.
Seeing this, the remaining cultivators all trembled in fear. When the cultivators on the third island saw Black Crow Divine Monarch approaching, they all stood up and rushed towards the shore.
Although this blood lake had a restriction that allowed them to advance but not retreat, Black Crow Divine Monarch’s safety gave them a glimmer of hope.
Sure enough, as everyone retreated, they discovered that the restriction had lost its effect at some point, most likely because the palace in the middle of the lake had been opened.
For a time, the cultivators on the second and first islands all fled for their lives while the people who had gathered on the shore also spread out to maintain a safe distance.
Black Crow Divine Monarch’s steps came to a halt on the blood lake as he turned his head and glared fiercely at Yang Kai, “Junior ruined my plans, I’ll tear you to pieces!”
If it was possible, he would definitely not want to expose his identity and secretly possess someone else. In the future, he could slowly cultivate and return to his peak, but now that his possession had failed and he was forced by Yang Kai and the others to come out to replenish his strength, this secret could no longer be kept.
It could be imagined that once he left Blood Monster Cave Heaven, he would be hunted down by countless masters.
“Black Crow Divine Monarch, do you dare fight!” Yang Kai pointed his spear forward and shouted.
If he allowed this old bastard to do as he pleased, he would only become stronger. If he wanted to kill him, he could only do so as soon as possible!
Black Crow Divine Monarch coldly replied, “Why wouldn’t I dare? Junior, stand there obediently and don’t move, this King will deal with you later!”
Saying so, he suddenly raised his arms, and the giant blood lake seemed to be drawn in by some kind of force, causing the calm surface of the lake to suddenly boil and bubble as if it was being boiled, releasing a thick blood aura.
At this moment, Black Crow Divine Monarch’s body seemed to have become a bottomless pit, constantly swallowing the blood energy.
Yang Kai’s entire body went cold…
This blood lake was definitely prepared by Blood Monster Divine Monarch for the sake of his successor. After all, even if someone had inherited his Blood Dao inheritance and cultivated the Blood Shine Scripture, it would be useless if they didn’t have enough blood energy.
Yang Kai hadn’t thought too much about it before, but only now did he realize that the lake water in this blood lake was really formed from fresh blood. How many people had to be killed to fill such a large blood lake? When Blood Monster Divine Monarch was alive, he really wasn’t anything good!
