Black Crow Divine Monarch smiled and said, “A Seventh Order Monster Beast is indeed extraordinary, but it has been hibernating for a long time, so it’s unknown how much strength it can display. All of you here are the elite disciples of the various great Sects, so if we join forces, we can naturally fight it. Moreover, this Monarch doesn’t need you to kill it, you just need to delay it for a while. Once we break through the restriction and hide inside the Blood Monster Divine Monarch, what can that Seventh Order Monster Beast do?”
Yang Kai ignored him. Before entering the Blood Monster Cave Heaven, he had been looking forward to encountering some Gold Element or Yin Element Seventh Order Monster Beasts and killing them to obtain the Core, but after the battle with the Golden Baboon King, he had completely given up on this idea. A Seventh Order Monster Beast was not something he could covet.
Black Crow Divine Monarch continued, “The Blood Monster Divine Palace is the place where Old Ghost Blood Monster passed away. There are countless treasures hidden inside the Divine Palace. If you can obtain one or two of them, you will definitely soar into the sky.”
Although his words were filled with temptation, not many people were tempted. After witnessing Black Crow Divine Monarch’s methods, everyone was extremely wary of him. After all, this was a Divine Monarch’s reincarnation, so his understanding of the Blood Monster Cave Heaven was greater than anyone else’s. Even if it was as he said, if everyone worked together to stop the Seventh Order Monster Beast and break the restriction, who would be able to take the treasure from under Black Crow Divine Monarch’s nose? If there was anything good, wouldn’t he take it himself?
Who would be willing to do something that would benefit others? The disciples of the various Cave Heaven Paradise were not fools, so they could clearly see this point.
Black Crow Divine Monarch raised his arms and called out, “I ask everyone to lend me a hand, this Monarch will rely on all of you. After this matter is completed, the Divine Palace’s treasures will all depend on luck to get!”
Countless pairs of indifferent eyes stared at him, but no one responded.
Yang Kai sneered, “Black Crow Divine Monarch, if you want to borrow our strength to open the Blood Monster Divine Palace, I’m afraid you’ve got the wrong idea. I advise you to put this idea behind you.”
Black Crow Divine Monarch heard this and looked around, “This Monarch is sincere, does none of you have any intentions to help?”
Ba Liang said in a low voice, “Senior Divine Monarch, we all admire your strength. The many treasures in this Blood Monster Divine Palace should be taken by the Divine Monarch, we should not participate.”
Black Crow Divine Monarch chuckled lightly, “What are you afraid of? Are you afraid that this Monarch will harm you after entering the Divine Palace? If that’s the case… this Monarch can swear a blood oath!”
Saying so, he bit the tip of his tongue and spat out a mouthful of blood mist, quickly forming a series of hand seals and drawing the blood mist into a mysterious blood pattern. Facing the blood pattern, Black Crow Divine Monarch said, “This Monarch is Black Crow, I swear a blood oath with my Dao Seal. If everyone can cooperate with this Monarch to open the Blood Monster Divine Palace and enter the Divine Palace, all treasures will depend on their own luck to get. If you do not take the initiative to provoke this Monarch, this Monarch will not act against you. If I violate this oath, my Soul will be destroyed!”
Saying so, he formed a seal and the blood mark transformed into a streak of blood light that shot into Black Crow Divine Monarch’s forehead. Black Crow Divine Monarch let out a muffled groan and took a few steps back, his face slightly pale.
Seeing this, everyone looked at each other.
No one had expected Black Crow Divine Monarch to so decisively use his own Dao Seal to make such a blood oath. Moreover, this oath sounded quite sincere. As long as they entered the Blood Monster Divine Palace and did not provoke him, he would not take action. This imperceptibly guaranteed everyone’s safety.
Although everyone had guessed that the more Black Crow Divine Monarch acted like this, the more he wanted to obtain something from the Blood Monster Divine Palace, it was undeniable that many people were tempted after this blood oath.
Previously, it was mainly because of Black Crow Divine Monarch's terrifying strength that he was able to activate Yin Xinzhao’s identity token in one move. If he really wanted to kill someone, no one could stop him.
Now that there was security, the situation was different.
In any case, Black Crow Divine Monarch’s actions were quite sincere.
Yin Xinzhao and the others looked at each other for a moment, all of them seeing the interest in each other’s eyes. After so many years, they were the first batch of people to come here. If they could open the Blood Monster Divine Palace, they might be able to find some good things inside.
Unthinking Heaven's Qiu Kangxian asked, “Divine Monarch, can you tell me what kind of treasure is inside the Blood Monster Divine Palace?”
Black Crow Divine Monarch chuckled, “How would this Monarch know? I have never entered the Blood Monster Divine Palace before, but Old Ghost Blood Monster was an Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage master when he was alive, so there should be some good things inside. Perhaps there are many Seventh and Eighth Grade cultivation resources inside.”
These words not only caused Qiu Kangxian and the others to gasp, but even Yang Kai’s eyes flashed. Although he was very worried about Black Crow Divine Monarch, he desperately needed the resources of a Seventh Grade Gold and Yin Element. If there really were Seventh or Eighth Grade resources inside, he would definitely try to obtain them. Although he thought so, he didn’t show it on his face.
Ba Liang hesitated for a moment before gritting his teeth and saying, “Wealth comes from danger, since we’ve already come here, how can we retreat? Senior Divine Monarch, no matter what others choose, I, Ba Liang, am willing to help you!”
“Very good, very good, you’re quite good,” Black Crow Divine Monarch looked at him approvingly.
Qiu Kangxian said, “Since Brother Ba agrees, I have no reason to disagree.”
Ye Cheng from Azure Nether Paradise smiled and said, “This Ye will also participate.”
As soon as these people declared their intentions, more people expressed their willingness to help Black Crow Divine Monarch to break the seal.
However, there were also some cultivators who felt that their strength was inferior to others, so after hesitating for a moment, they cupped their fists and said, “Senior Divine Monarch, please forgive us. Our strength is too low, so even if we were to act, I’m afraid we wouldn’t be able to help much. We will take our leave now.”
Saying so, the man led his fellow disciples down the mountain.
Black Crow Divine Monarch didn’t try to stop them, simply watching their backs with a faint smile.
The few of them had only walked a few dozen meters when suddenly, a layer of red blood mist emerged from the ground and wrapped around them. Screams of pain rang out as a powerful energy fluctuation burst out.
The blood mist came suddenly and dissipated quickly. In just a few breaths of time, the dark red blood mist disappeared again, but what everyone saw made them suck in a breath of cold air. The few cultivators who were preparing to leave had all turned into dried corpses and collapsed to the ground, dead.
Black Crow Divine Monarch grinned maliciously, “This Monarch has even sworn a blood oath, who dares not give me face?” Turning his head to look around, “Anyone else who wishes to leave, step forward for this Monarch!”
No one dared to step forward after witnessing what had happened. Just now, Black Crow Divine Monarch hadn’t even made a move and those people had all died miserably. Naturally, no one dared to stand in his way.
Black Crow Divine Monarch sneered, “I’m not afraid to tell you that this Monarch has already set up a great array here. Without this Monarch’s permission, no one can escape!”
Yang Kai said lightly, “Divine Monarch, don’t speak so arrogantly, be careful not to bite your tongue.” He had tried to activate the Space Laws just now and found that he was not restrained. In other words, if he wanted to leave, Black Crow Divine Monarch would not be able to stop him.
Black Crow Divine Monarch glanced over with a thick murderous intent in his eyes, but he quickly restrained it and smiled slightly, “Boy, you’re quite capable. If you want to leave, this King really can’t stop you, but… if you can escape, can the people around you leave?”
Yang Kai’s face immediately sank. He really didn’t have any way to deal with Black Crow Divine Monarch with these people around him. Although he could take everyone into the Mysterious Small World and take them away, Black Crow Divine Monarch would probably try to stop him before he could do anything.
Black Crow Divine Monarch ignored him and turned to the others, asking, “Is there anyone else who wants to leave?”
What was the point of leaving? The few who wanted to leave had already died in front of their eyes, so who would dare leave?
Regardless of whether they were willing or not, they could only follow Black Crow Divine Monarch to the end.
Black Crow Divine Monarch saw this and couldn’t help nodding, turning to Yang Kai and asking, “What about you? Do you want to leave or stay?” Right now, only the people gathered around Yang Kai didn’t say anything. As long as Yang Kai agreed, everything would be fine.
“Divine Monarch agreed to let me go?” Yang Kai asked.
“You can try,” Black Crow Divine Monarch said with a smile, his eyes sweeping over Qu Huachang, Zhang Ruoxi, and the others.
Yang Kai gritted his teeth and pondered for a moment before saying, “It’s not impossible for Divine Monarch to request my assistance, but I have a condition.”
Black Crow Divine Monarch smiled, “You want to negotiate with this Monarch? I’m afraid you don’t have the qualifications!”
Yang Kai shook his head, “I think I have the qualifications to do so.” Saying so, he immediately sent a voice transmission, “Divine Monarch just said that there are two main problems in entering the Blood Monster Divine Palace. One is to break the seal, and the other is to tie down the Seventh Order Monster Beast. We don’t know anything about this place’s seal, only the Divine Monarch knows a thing or two about it. In other words, the matter of breaking the seal will be handled by the Divine Monarch. When the time comes, the Divine Monarch’s mind will be affected and he will not be able to multitask, so he will need someone else to restrain the Seventh Order Monster Beast.”
“So what?” Black Crow Divine Monarch’s expression remained calm.
Yang Kai said, “Seventh Order Monster Beasts are extremely ferocious. Among everyone here, besides me, who can resist a Seventh Order Monster Beast?”
Black Crow Divine Monarch snorted, “Many of these little brats have that token on them. When they encounter a life-threatening situation, the Divine Ability within the token will be activated. At that time, not to mention being entangled with them, even killing a Seventh Order Monster Beast wouldn’t be a problem.”
Yang Kai said, “That’s only possible if they encounter a life-threatening situation. Do you really think they’ll allow themselves to be placed in a dangerous situation and waste the Divine Abilities on their tokens? Why should Divine Monarch deceive himself? These people are unreliable. If you want someone to resist a Seventh Order Monster Beast, Divine Monarch can only rely on me. What kind of ability do you think I have? Even Divine Monarch has seen…” At this point, Yang Kai suddenly frowned, “Wait, so Divine Monarch have been waiting for me all this time?”
He suddenly remembered that Black Crow Divine Monarch had arrived here a long time ago but had only appeared when he arrived, obviously waiting for him.
After understanding this point, Yang Kai immediately realized that this Old Ghost had long since decided to let him restrain the Seventh Order Monster Beast! In other words, the one who could restrain the Seventh Order Monster Beast was him!
The old ghost was too treacherous and he almost fell into his trap!
Black Crow Divine Monarch coldly snorted, “Little brat, if you are too smart, you will die early.”
Yang Kai laughed loudly, “Why would Divine Monarch be so angry?”
Since the other party had long wanted him to entangle the Seventh Order Monster Beast, what was there to be polite about? Yang Kai immediately asked, “Does the Divine Monarch now think I have the qualifications to negotiate with you?”
