Seeing Yang Kai walk over with his spear in hand, Mao Zhe, who had fled back to the Profound Yang Mountain, stood atop a mountain and shouted angrily, “Boy, how dare you bully others!” [Hoogs: wow, he still has the face to say that. LOL]
He had already fled back and activated all of his home’s Great Arrays and Restrictions, yet Yang Kai had still chased after him, showing a look of unwillingness to give up.
Before today, he had never thought that someone in the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage would be able to defeat him, and it was not in a one-on-one fight.
He had joined forces with Geng Qing, and Zhou Ya, but after the battle, Geng Qing and Zhou Ya had suffered heavy injuries and were now unconscious, while he himself had been beaten to a pulp.
Where did this little brat come from? A month ago, didn’t Second Brother say he was only a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator? In the past, he had been in a hurry and hadn’t had time to ask what was going on.
It was impossible for a Fifth Order cultivator to break through to the Sixth Order in just a month and display such terrifying strength.
If he had known that Yang Kai’s strength was so great, Mao Zhe would have treated him with respect no matter what. But now, Profound Yang Mountain and Yang Kai had completely tear face, even the Second Mountain Lord had been killed.
This enmity had already been planted and there was no way to resolve it.
A moment later, Yang Kai arrived in front of Profound Yang Mountain and saw a thick curtain of light enveloping the various peaks of Profound Yang Mountain. Profound lines flowed across the curtain of light, clearly showing the power of the Formation. Yang Kai raised his spear and stabbed it, causing the light curtain to sink slightly before quickly recovering.
After some probing, Yang Kai nodded slightly. Although the defensive Formation here weren’t as unpredictable as his own Nine Layers Heaven, they were still quite extraordinary. After all, Profound Yang Mountain had stood tall in Shadowless Cave Heaven for thousands of years, and after so many years of accumulation, its various foundations could not be underestimated.
However, since he was already here, how could he retreat so easily?
Raising his head to glance at Mao Zhe who was standing atop the mountain and staring at him coldly, Yang Kai grinned, showing a meaningful smile that caused Mao Zhe’s heart to pound.
“What is this brat trying to do!” Mao Zhe frowned.
Before he could figure it out, he heard a low shout.
A resounding dragon roar shook the sky as a giant golden dragon head appeared behind Yang Kai and disappeared into his body, followed by a series of explosions.
As the sound rang out, the eyes of the people from the Profound Yang Mountain quickly shifted upwards, becoming filled with fear and shock.
In his field of vision, the little man suddenly transformed into a massive creature.
His entire body was covered in dragon scales, his hands transforming into sharp dragon claws, the dragon tail behind his back swinging, the two dragon horns on his forehead seemingly forged from pure gold, and his dragon beard fluttering in the wind.
If a three hundred zhang tall giant wasn’t shocking enough, the giant spear in this terrifying creature’s hand was terrifying.
The Azure Dragon Spear also expanded to several hundred zhang in length, emitting a cold light.
The Dragon Prestige permeated the air, and through the layers of protective Formations, the Profound Yang Mountain’s disciples were unable to breathe.
“Dragon Clan!” Mao Zhe cried out, his pupils shrinking to the size of needles, “You’re actually a Dragon Clan!”
Yang Kai shook his head and spat out a breath so hot it seemed to burn a hole in the world. Raising the giant spear in his hand high up, his thunderous voice resounded throughout the world, “You talk too much, eat my spear first!”
Without any fancy moves, the long spear ruthlessly smashed down, causing a violent wind to blow, sending sand and stones flying. Many Open Heaven Stage masters in the Profound Yang Mountain cried out in alarm and fled.
Mao Zhe didn’t dare to be negligent, quickly taking out the Formation Jade and activating its power to resist.
The long spear came crashing down like a stick, smashing into the Formation's light curtain.
With a loud bang, the light curtain of the Formation caved in, its light flashing wildly.
Yang Kai roared as he increased his strength, but he was still blocked by the Formation. The terrifying force that came from the air caused the entire Profound Yang Mountain to shake violently, and many cultivators staggered and almost fell to the ground. Some Open Heaven Staeg cultivators with weaker cultivations even had blood flowing from their mouths and noses, their appearances miserable.
After a short while, the light barrier of the Formation was repelled, and Yang Kai’s giant figure was pushed back a few thousand feet.
Raising his brow slightly, Yang Kai praised, “Amazing, amazing!”
As expected of someone who had accumulated strength for thousands of years, this Profound Yang Mountain’s protective array was truly impressive, actually able to block his spear without breaking. A vicious light flashed across his dragon eyes as he stepped forward aggressively.
Mao Zhe’s eyelids twitched as he shouted, “Junior Brother, please wait a moment, we can discuss everything!”
Yang Kai laughed, “We have nothing to discuss.”
Another spear fell, smashing heavily into the protective barrier.
Puff, puff, puff, puff... The sound of blood spurting rang out as the three Mid Rank Open Heaven masters who were assisting Mao Zhe in activating the Formation's core spat out mouthfuls of blood, their auras instantly weakening as they were obviously injured by the terrifying force.
Mao Zhe turned his head and looked over, his heart pounding with fear. Turning back to Yang Kai, he saw that Yang Kai’s attacks were not stopping, and the spear’s momentum was rising again! He couldn’t help gritting his teeth and saying, “Junior Brother, Shadowless Cave Heaven isn’t big, but it’s not small at all. When you do things, leave some room for negotiation!”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “There’s no need. Today, I’ll first destroy your Profound Yang Mountain and then stab you to death. We’ll never meet again.”
Mao Zhe was so angry he wanted to vomit blood, but he had nothing to say.
Spear after spear, after five or six consecutive strikes, all the cultivators who were using their Formation core to support the activation of the Protective Formation suffered heavy injuries, their auras weakened, and some even fell unconscious on the spot.
His heart filled with hatred, he wanted to rush out and fight to the death with Yang Kai, but seeing how powerful he was, how could he have the courage to do so? Earlier, the three Mountain Lords had fought three against one, but now, Geng Qing and Zhou Ya were both unconscious, leaving him alone and unable to fight back.
Mao Zhe sighed lightly as he changed his hand seals, adjusting the power of the Formation.
For now, the only thing he could do was abandon the carriage to protect himself and narrow down the defensive perimeter of the Protective Formation. Only then would he have a chance to resist this terrifying attack.
With a loud bang, Yang Kai’s spear shattered the light curtain. The momentum of his spear didn’t decrease at all as it smashed into one of the mountain peaks, causing it to sway and almost collapse.
Yang Kai swept his eyes around and saw that several of the peaks of the Profound Yang Mountain were no longer protected by the Protective Formation, only the central area was still covered by the light curtain. He understood that Mao Zhe had given up on the periphery of the Profound Yang Mountain and was planning to defend the central area. This way, not only would he be able to conserve the power of the Protective Formation, but he would also be able to condense the power of the Protective Formation even more effectively.
Yang Kai coldly snorted as his Dragon Prestige spread out, causing the surrounding space to become viscous.
On top of the exposed mountains, the cultivators of Profound Yang Mountain were like quails in the cold winter, shivering as they stared at the giant creature that was shuttling between the mountains.
Yang Kai raised his spear and swept it towards one of the mountain peaks. Amidst the cries of alarm, a terrifying World Force burst out and directly split the mountain into two. With a loud bang, gravel rolled down and the mountain peak was broken, creating a chaotic scene.
At the center of the Formation, Mao Zhe’s eyes were filled with hatred.
Profound Yang Mountain was the foundation of his existence in Shadowless Cave Heaven, and it was one of the few safe places in Shadowless Cave Heaven. If this place was destroyed, Profound Yang Mountain would immediately fall apart. Without a shelter, who would remain here and listen to his orders?
Another mountain peak collapsed, and wherever Yang Kai passed, it was as if the end of the world had arrived.
The few mountains exposed outside the Formation were quickly razed to the ground, leaving only one behind. Just as Yang Kai was about to raise his spear to scan the area again, his eyes suddenly paused and he looked towards a figure on the peak.
It was a woman who stood there quietly, quietly staring at him. There was no great terror in her eyes, instead, it was as if she was about to be freed.
It was her!
Yang Kai immediately recognized this woman as the one who had secretly run out to find him and showed him the whereabouts of the Proprietress.
At that time, Yang Kai guessed that she must have had some kind of difficulty that forced her to submit to Yun Feibai, or perhaps she was forced to do so, so she secretly helped him.
It was also because of the jade slip she had given him that Yang Kai was able to find the Proprietress and the others.
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai stepped onto the mountain peak and summoned his spear, transforming into a spinning top before diving into the mountain and disappearing.
Inside the Formation, everyone’s eyes were fixed on Yang Kai, wondering what he was up to.
Suddenly, the mountain began to shake as if there was some kind of huge movement coming from the bottom of the mountain. Mao Zhe’s eyes narrowed as he suddenly thought of a possibility.
In the next instant, under everyone’s stunned gazes, the giant mountain slowly rose up, and beneath it, a giant creature that was several hundred zhang tall, its nostrils releasing a scorching aura, its body slightly bent as it carried the giant mountain.
Roaring furiously, the hunched figure suddenly straightened up.
Everyone’s eyes went wide as Mao Zhe’s pupils shrank.
This person had actually lifted up a mountain!
What kind of terrifying power was this? Although his cultivation had reached the Mid Rank Open Heaven and he could indeed display a great amount of power with just a wave of his hand, this was the power of his World Force urged from the Small Universe.
With just brute force alone, there were probably not many people in the entire 3000 Worlds who could lift such a mountain.
At the very least, this was the first time Mao Zhe had encountered this!
However, this wasn’t the end of it. Yang Kai held onto the mountain peak and trembled as he roared, “All the little insects on the mountain, scram!”
On the mountain peak, one cultivator after another was shaken off and fell to the ground like dumplings. The quiet woman standing at the top of the mountain just happened to fall right in front of Yang Kai’s eyes, and with a single breath, Yang Kai blew her over a hundred kilometers away before landing steadily on the ground.
Yang Kai strode towards the center of Profound Yang Mountain, and with each step he took, the earth shook.
Boom boom boom…
At first, his movements weren’t fast, each step leaving a clear footprint on the ground, but after a few steps, he seemed to fly forward, his body leaning forward slightly.
Inside the Formation, Mao Zhe’s expression changed drastically as he hurriedly shouted, “Quickly activate the Protective Formation power!”
TO BE CONTINIUED...
