Inside the Heavenly Sword Palace’s main hall, Zuo Quan Hui’s expression was gloomy and cold. The pressure of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master filled the air, making it difficult for everyone to breathe. The one who spoke realized that he had said something wrong and couldn’t help feeling a bit frightened.
“Union Master, this mistress requests to fight, I hope Union Master can grant my request!” Just as Zuo Quan Hui was about to lose his face, Luan Bai Feng stood up and bowed.
Zuo Quan Hui glanced at her warmly and nodded, “Warden Luan is quite considerate, but with three Sixth Order opponents attacking together, Warden Luan is likely outnumbered.” Although his cultivation was a grade higher than Luan Bai Feng’s, Luan Bai Feng had taken the initiative to seek refuge with him, and now that she had taken the initiative to offer herself to save him some face, Zuo Quan Hui was still very polite to her.
Turning his head to the other side, he shouted, “Huang Quan, Jin Gang, Cang Yan!” [Hoogsway: Huang Quan=Underworld. It feels weird calling him underworld in a sentence sometimes.]
Being called by him, no matter how unwilling Huang Quan Heavenly Monarch's trio was, they could only brace themselves and stand up, cupping their fists, “This subordinate is here!”
“I’ll leave those three to you!” Zuo Quan Hui looked at them indifferently.
How could Huang Quan Heavenly Monarch and the others dare to refute? Since they had submitted to someone else, they had to act like lackeys, respectfully saying, “Rest assured, Sir, we will make sure they never return!”
Turning around, they gathered their forces and left Heavenly Sword Palace.
A moment later, a great battle broke out in the void.
This was not the first time the three Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters from Crime Star had fought with the Three Mountain Lords of Profound Yang Mountain. When Heavenly Sword Union had emerged from the Flying Smoke Territory, the three of them had been the first to fight. The Three Mountain Lords guarding this place were outnumbered and had no choice but to retreat into the depths of the void until Yang Kai arrived with a large force.
Now that both sides had exchanged blows, it could be said that they knew each other well and were evenly matched.
For a time, all kinds of large and small fights broke out in the void. The power of Divine Abilities and artifacts were released, and the World Force rose and fell.
However, whether it was the Heavenly Sword Union or the Void Land, everyone knew that this was not the time for a decisive battle, so both sides held back. The scene looked quite lively, but the participants were all extremely cautious. After fighting for half an hour, with the exception of a few who were injured, not a single one of them had died. It had to be said that this was not a small miracle, but a tacit understanding between both sides.
Yang Kai sat in the Shattered Spirit Province and gazed at the distant battlefield.
Inside Heavenly Sword Palace, Zuo Quan Hui’s face was ashen. If he couldn’t gain an advantage in this battle, how could he force Yang Kai to take action? If Yang Kai didn’t take action, how could he have the chance to kill him?
Just as Yang Kai had planned to give Luan Bai Feng a chance to participate in the battle so she could send message, Zuo Quan Hui’s plan was very simple. As long as he could force Yang Kai to show his face, he would be able to take action. Even with the Holy Spirit Heavenly Moon Demon Spider’s protection, it was not impossible to kill him!
The last time he had been injured by Yang Kai was because he had been careless. This time, he would not lower his guard.
As long as he could kill Yang Kai, he would be able to take revenge! Whether the others in the Void Land lived or died, he didn’t care.
Seeing that the battle was about to begin, Zuo Quan Hui was naturally unhappy and said, “Huang Mao, Liang Ce, Qi Xuan, Dan Yang!”
The four people below all stood up and accepted their orders.
These four were all Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters from Heavenly Sword Union. Yang Kai had once asked Luan Bai Feng about the strength of Heavenly Sword Union, but Luan Bai Feng’s answer was that there were four Sixth Order masters on the surface. Two of them had been killed by Yang Kai, leaving only two behind. Even she, didn't know about those who were hiding in the dark.
Huang Mao and Liang Ce were the two who stood out in the open while Qi Xuan and Dan Yang were the hidden masters of Heavenly Sword Union. Both of them were masters of the older generation and were often in secluded cultivation. If Zuo Quan Hui hadn’t entered Heavenly Sword Union, how could they have appeared here?
But then again, Heavenly Sword Union and Yang Kai did have some kind of irreconcilable enmity between them. They wanted to use Zuo Quan Hui’s power to avenge the two dead former Union Masters, so they didn’t have any objections to his orders.
“The four of you should lead more people to support Huang Quan and the other two. You must obtain an advantage.”
“Yes!” The four quickly responded.
Zuo Quan Hui then turned to the remaining Sixth Order female from his faction and said, “Zi Yan, you go too and act according to the situation!”
“Master, don’t worry, this Disciple understands!” Zi Yan clenched her teeth and turned around, the hatred in her eyes threatening to burn the void!
Zuo Quan Hui currently had many Sixth Order subordinates, but he only had one true confidant, and that was Zi Yan. After all, she was a disciple of his faction, so her loyalty was unquestionable. Only Zi Yan understood what Zuo Quan Hui was planning.
“Does Martial Uncle Zuo want to end this battle quickly?” A voice suddenly rang out in the hall. As soon as the battle began, Zuo Quan Hui had sent out almost all of his Sixth Order Open Heaven subordinates, so his intentions were obvious. A smart person would naturally be able to guess.
Zuo Quan Hui replied in a low voice, “Martial Nephew is right, this King does have such intentions.” Towards the others, Zuo Quan Hui didn’t show any trace of politeness, casually ordering them around, but towards this person, Zuo Quan Hui was extremely polite. This person’s background was not to be underestimated, and just like Luan Bai Feng, he had taken the initiative to follow him, so naturally Zuo Quan Hui had to treat him with respect.
The person who spoke paused for a moment before continuing, “According to the information we’ve gathered, besides Yang Kai, there are a total of eight Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters in the Void Land. On our side, there are three from Huang Quan's people, four from Heavenly Sword Union, a total of eight including your disciple. This time, we’ve met a worthy opponent. It’s going to be a good show.”
The man smiled slightly as he spoke, his eyes filled with anticipation.
Zuo Quan Hui said seriously, “That’s why we may need Martial Nephew and Warden Luan to put pressure on them later. Only then can Yang Kai show himself.”
The man nodded and said, “Of course, there’s no problem.” Turning his head to look at Luan Bai Feng, his eyes brazenly lingered on her towering chest for a moment before he smiled and said, “Warden Luan, I hope we can cooperate well!”
Luan Bai Feng covered her mouth and giggled, “This mistress is a woman with a weak physique. I’ve never seen such a big scene before, so I’m quite anxious. I’ll have to trouble Junior Brother to take care of me later.”
The man chuckled, “Sure, sure!”
Luan Bai Feng also smiled, a trace of anxiety flashing across her beautiful eyes. She hadn’t expected that she would be used by Zuo Quan Hui as a last resort. This way, she wouldn’t be able to inform Yang Kai in advance, and once Zuo Quan Hui’s plan succeeded, Yang Kai would really fall into great danger.
Now that she and Yang Kai were on the same boat, if anything happened to Yang Kai, she wouldn’t be able to survive.
Turning her head to look outside, Luan Bai Feng saw that the battlefield was becoming more chaotic, and the anxiety in her eyes became even more intense!
The Heavenly Sword Union had sent out eight Sixth Order masters, so Void Land could only respond accordingly. Fortunately, Yang Kai had made arrangements long ago. After the three masters of Profound Yang Mountain, Grey Bones, Hua Yong, Yue He and Mo Mei also took action one after another in an orderly manner.
The Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage battlefield was evenly matched. After all, everyone had the same number of people, so neither side could gain any advantage. Although they fought fiercely, whether it was the enemy or their allies, none of them were in any danger of dying.
On the other hand, the battlefields below the Sixth Order soon had differences in strength.
Although Heavenly Sword Union was also a peak Second Class Force with many Open Heaven Stage cultivators, it was still slightly inferior to the current Void Land.
From the countless years of accumulation of Blood Monster Cave Heaven's Ding Feng City’s cultivators, they had finally borne fruit in the Void Land, as well as the large number of Open Heaven Stage cultivators Yang Kai had brought out from Shadowless Cave Heaven. Now, the number of Open Heaven Stage cultivators below the Sixth Order on the Void Land numbered nearly 1500!
This was an extremely large number. Under the Cave Heaven Paradise, there were very few forces that possessed so many Open Heaven Stage.
Naturally, Heavenly Sword Union was inferior.
Void Land didn’t even need to mobilize all of their forces, only sending half of their forces was enough to crush them. In a situation where the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage couldn’t be interfered with, the more people there were, the more critical the outcome would be. What’s more, Void Land had many Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage.
Yang Kai’s eyes swept over the battlefield and clearly saw Heavenly Sword Union’s Open Heaven Stage cultivators being suppressed to the point where they couldn’t even breathe. From time to time, a small universe would collapse and the World Force would erupt, a scene of Open Heaven Stage cultivators being killed.
Looking around, Yang Kai was shocked, his eyes fixed on a fiery red figure, his eyelids twitching violently.
The fiery red figure was none other than Zhu Qing, who had just has her bloodline transformation before!
Although she had undergone a metamorphosis and the power of her Dragon Vein had greatly increased, overall, she only has the power of a Third or Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage. In such a battlefield, there was always the risk of death.
Who brought her up? The veins on Yang Kai’s forehead bulged.
However, on second thought, no one would do such a thing. It was highly likely that she had done it herself.
Lu Xue, who had been standing next to Yang Kai, also saw this scene and bent down to ask in a low voice, “Sir, do we need to bring Madam back? On the battlefield, swords have no eyes.”
Lu Xue had consumed a Mid Rank World Fruit in the past, allowing her to advance from a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator to a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. Moreover, she was one of the earliest Open Heaven Stage cultivators to follow Yang Kai, so she could be considered a trusted aide. Now, she was staying by Yang Kai’s side as a messenger.
Yang Kai hesitated for a moment before slowly shaking his head, “No need!”
Since Zhu Qing was willing to fight, Yang Kai let her do as she pleased. Of course, what really reassures Yang Kai was that he could clearly see Old Bai, Chef, and the Accountant walking around Zhu Qing’s side, neither interfering with her battle with her enemies nor allowing powerful enemies to approach.
With the three of them taking care of her, Zhu Qing’s life shouldn’t be in danger, and such a battle would be of great help to her growth.
Moving his eyes away, he continued to observe the battlefield with a frown.
He didn’t see Luan Bai Feng on the battlefield, which meant that there was still more Sixth Order cultivator from Heavenly Sword Union!
It was just that he didn’t know how much strength Zuo Quan Hui was hiding, but no matter what, he still had to take precautions.
Turning his head, Yang Kai said, “Everyone, prepare yourselves, we may need your help later!”
Originally, he had wanted to hide Iron Blood and the others so that he could give Zuo Quan Hui a big surprise, but now it seemed that he wouldn’t be able to hide them for long. Once Luan Bai Feng was sent out, he would need someone to deal with it.
