This is the first official confrontation between Heavenly Sword Union and the Void Land, and it was also a battle that was destined to be fruitless.
For Heavenly Sword Union’s side, if Yang Kai didn’t show up, Zuo Quan Hui’s scheme would be impossible to achieve. As for Void Land, before they had a certain degree of confidence in killing Zuo Quan Hui, the hidden strength in Yang Kai's hands couldn’t be casually revealed.
There were twenty Sixth Order fighting in the battle and more than a thousand below the Sixth Order. The surrounding million kilometers was a battlefield where everyone was bathed in blood.
In the Shattered Spirit Province, Yang Kai swept his eyes across the battlefield and issued a series of orders. More and more Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters rushed to the battlefield to expand their advantage.
Since the Heavenly Sword Union was willing to follow Zuo Quan Hui’s lead, they couldn’t blame Void Land for not showing any mercy. If they could take advantage of this opportunity to kill all Open Heaven Stage masters below the Sixth Order from Heavenly Sword Union, it would be a great victory. At that time, Zuo Quan Hui’s group of Sixth Order masters wouldn’t be able to accomplish much.
Suddenly, Yang Kai’s eyes focused on a certain spot on the battlefield, and after carefully observing for a moment, he raised his hand and called out, “Lu Xue!”
“This subordinate is here,” Lu Xue, who had been standing beside him as the messenger, received the order.
“Go deal with that Myriad Demons Heaven disciple!” Yang Kai pointed her in a certain direction.
Lu Xue followed the direction of his finger and soon saw her target. Although she didn’t know what was so special about this Myriad Demons Heaven disciple, since Yang Kai had personally ordered her to do so, she could only act seriously.
“Yes!” She quickly replied and was about to leave when she suddenly heard Yang Kai’s voice and nodded, “Rest assured, Sir.”
Her figure flickered as she transformed into a streak of light and sped across the battlefield.
A moment later, Lu Xue arrived in front of her target and slashed her sword towards the Myriad Demons Heaven disciple.
The Myriad Demons Heaven Disciple was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage with extraordinary strength and was currently locked in a fierce battle with Jin Yuan Lang. Seeing Lu Xue join the battle, not only was he not afraid, he even licked his lips as if he had seen some delicious food.
Lu Xue couldn’t help shuddering as a sense of dread filled her heart. Listening to Yang Kai’s instructions, she sent him a message without hesitation!
The Myriad Demons Heaven Disciple’s face, which had been bursting with fighting spirit, suddenly went stiff as Demon Clouds was urged as he retreat a hundred kilometers before raising his eyes to look towards Shattered Spirit Province.
Lu Xue and Jin Yuan Lang didn’t care about what he was thinking, attacking from the left and right, causing the Myriad Demons Heaven Disciple to be unable to fight back.
With two against one, both of them at the Fifth Order, the Myriad Demons Heaven Disciple quickly fell into a disadvantageous position. However, no matter how dangerous the situation was, he was always able to find a way to survive. After fighting for a long time, Lu Xue and Jin Yuan Lang both sighed in amazement. The two of them had almost killed this man several times, but in the next moment, he was still alive and kicking.
If it weren’t for the fact that this man’s strength was only at the Fifth Order, the two of them would have suspected that he was concealing his cultivation. Otherwise, how could he be so lucky every time?
Lu Xue and Jin Yuan Lang didn’t fight with the Myriad Demons Heaven Disciple for too long. After the time it took for an incense stick to burn, a stream of light suddenly shot out from the Heavenly Sword Palace’s side towards the void.
Seeing this, the many Open Heaven cultivators of Heavenly Sword Union all used their Divine Abilities to quickly retreat while blocking the enemy.
The many Sixth Order cultivators also retreated as they fought, cutting off the retreat of the fleeing Open Heaven Stage cultivators.
The group from the Void Land naturally chased after them, but they didn’t go too far. The deterrent force of the Heavenly Sword Palace was too strong, so no one dared to get too close.
“A cornered enemy should not be pursued!” Yue He was the first to stop, and only then did the people behind her stop, quietly watching the Heavenly Sword Union people flee back into Heavenly Sword Palace.
After a brief period of silence, the many Open Heaven Stage from the Void Land burst into cheers. No matter what, Void Land had won this battle. Although they hadn’t been able to kill any of the enemy’s Sixth Order masters, they had killed many below the Sixth Order, greatly weakening Heavenly Sword Union’s strength.
Under Yue He’s orders, the people below the Sixth Order began to clean up the battlefield. The Void Land was currently lacking in supplies, and many people had died in this battle. Naturally, the spoils of war had to be collected to replenish their consumption.
Under the leadership of Yue He, the many Sixth Order cultivators flew towards Qing Kui and Su Yingxue. These two powerful masters who had suddenly appeared had helped greatly in this battle. If they had not stopped Pei Wen Xuan and Luan Bai Feng, a portion of the Void Land’s hidden power would have been exposed.
“Greetings, Senior Sister Su,” Yue He bowed respectfully. Su Yingxue had previously stayed at the Void Star City’s Training Hall, and she was the one who had told Yang Kai about the Dao Exchange Conference, so Yue He naturally recognized her.
“Junior Sister Yue He!” Su Yingxue returned the greeting.
“May I ask who this is…” Yue He looked towards Qing Kui curiously. Although she had some guesses in her heart, she couldn’t be certain.
Receiving Su Yingxue’s introduction, Yue He smiled and said, “So it’s Senior Brother Qing Kui. When Young Master was in Yin-Yang Heaven, it was all thanks to Senior Brother Qing Kui’s care.”
“It’s just a trivial matter,” Qing Kui grinned, “Junior Brother Yang is now the son-in-law of Yin-Yang Heaven, so naturally we has to take care of family. En, is Junior Brother Yang in that Spirit Province?”
Yue He nodded, “Yes, it’s just that it’s not convenient for him to show his face for the time being. I’m sure Young Master is very happy to see the two of you. Please follow me!”
While everyone was talking, the battlefield had been cleaned up and a large group of Open Heaven Stage cultivators had returned victorious.
In Shattered Spirit Province’s temporary built grand hall, Yang Kai stood up and greeted everyone. Yang Kai introduced Qing Kui and Su Yingxue to everyone, and after exchanging greetings, both sides sat down.
“Senior Brother Qing, Senior Sister Su, why are you here?” Yang Kai asked in confusion, his brow still filled with worry, “Also, is it not a problem blocking Pei Wen Xuan's attack? Will it implicate Elder Xu?”
Qing Kui was still somewhat shocked by the strength of the Void Land and was looking around, mainly because there were too many Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage!
Previously, when he heard that there were nine Sixth Order masters in the Void Land, he was shocked. Putting aside the various Cave Heaven Paradise, how many forces in the entire 3000 Worlds could have nine Sixth Order masters? Heavenly Sword Union’s reputation wasn’t small, but it only had six or seven people, and the Void Land had more than half of them.
Moreover, Void Land was a newly promoted force.
However, only after coming here did he learn that the nine Sixth Order were outdated.
There were a total of sixteen Sixth Order masters sitting in the hall!
Although many people’s auras were somewhat unstable and their World Force was unable to be contained, clearly showing signs of a new breakthrough, they were still Sixth Order!
Moreover, they had directly advanced to the Sixth Order!
Qing Kui’s eyesight was sharp, so he could naturally see this point. If it had been promoted from a Fifth Order Open Heaven cultivator, there would be no such situation where they can't conceal their aura.
Sixteen Sixth Order cultivators were already shocking enough, and seven of them had even reached the Sixth Order directly.
In any Cave Heaven Paradise, the seven people sitting here were equivalent to Qu Huachang’s status as a core disciple, and the Sect would definitely spend a great deal of resources to nurture them.
If these people had a smooth journey, they would be able to break through to the Eighth Order! In the Cave Heaven Paradise, they would be the pillars of strength.
Qing Kui was deeply shocked. Where did these people come from? He didn’t even hear Yang Kai’s question clearly.
“Senior Brother!” Su Yingxue gently pushed him.
“En?” Qing Kui was stunned for a moment before quickly coming to his senses and calmly saying, “Oh, Junior Sister and I have already been expelled from the Sect by Master!”
After he finished speaking, his eyes swept over Iron Blood Great Emperor and the others, as if he was trying to figure out something.
“What?” Now it was Yang Kai’s turn to be shocked, “Expelled?”
Being expelled from the Sect was not a trivial matter. Generally speaking, only those who had committed a grave mistake would be reduced to such a state. Disciples who were expelled from the Sect would be cursed, and they might even be hunted down.
Qing Kui and Su Yingxue were both Sixth Order, Xu Linggong’s left and right arms. Even if they had made a mistake, how could they be expelled from the Sect?
But soon, Yang Kai seemed to react and smiled bitterly, “Elder Xu has put in a lot of effort!”
The so-called expulsion from the Sect was definitely just an excuse to the outside world, just like how Zuo Quan Hui had betrayed Thousand Crane Paradise. Since he could expel them from the Sect, he could naturally find an excuse to have them return to the Sect.
Normally, a High Rank Open Heaven would have a great reputation, so Xu Linggong wouldn’t be able to do such a thing.
Su Yingxue said lightly, “Master said that the Young Lord was in trouble and we couldn’t personally help, so he felt uneasy. Moreover, he also had a certain responsibility for this matter, so he sent me and Senior Brother here to help Junior Brother!”
Yang Kai cupped his fists and said, “Many thanks to Elder Xu, many thanks to Senior Brother Qing and Senior Sister Su.”
Qing Kui waved his hand and said, “There’s no need to be so polite with us. Originally, Master wanted to come here personally, but… the Sect didn’t agree.”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “I wouldn’t dare trouble Elder Xu!”
Originally, he had some complaints about Yin-Yang Heaven. Although he was the one who killed Zhao Xing from Thousand Crane Paradise, since the rules of the Dao Exchange Conference had been set long ago, Yin-Yang Heaven should help him resolve this problem.
Under the pressure of Yin-Yang Heaven, Thousand Crane Paradise had no right to target the Void Land, but Zuo Quan Hui, who had defected, had still caused the Void Land to suffer greatly.
Now that Xu Linggong had sent Qing Kui and Su Yingxue to assist him, if it weren’t for Yin-Yang Heaven’s disapproval, Xu Linggong would have personally come to assist him. The resentment in his heart immediately faded.
In the end, it was all because his strength was insufficient. In the end, it was because Void Land’s reputation was insufficient!
If one’s strength was enough, if one’s reputation was enough, even if one Zhao Xing was killed, what would Thousand Crane Paradise dare to say?
“To be able to obtain your assistance, this is a big event!” Yang Kai said excitedly.
Qing Kui smiled bitterly, “I thought the two of us were here to help you in your time of need, but who would have thought that we were just adding flowers to a brocade. Even if we don’t appear today, with your Void Land’s foundation, it should be enough to deal with Heavenly Sword Union.”
They had also learned that there were nine Sixth Order masters in the Void Land in advance, so when they saw Pei Wen Xuan and Luan Bai Feng appear, they had immediately come to stop them. But now it seemed that there were still seven newly promoted Sixth Order masters in the Void Land who hadn’t been dispatched yet, so they could handle it with or without them.
