At the place where the Heavenly Sword Palace had exploded, a giant black hole appeared in the void, surrounded by thousands of cracks that extended into the depths of the void.
The entire void shattered! It was like the end of the world.
Zuo Quan Hui stood somewhere in the void, surrounded by a group of Sixth Order cultivators, his eyelids twitching as if he had yet to recover from the series of events just now.
Previously, the Heavenly Sword Palace had an absolute advantage, only a few hundred thousand kilometers away from reaching the Star Boundary. At that time, everyone from the Void Land would be at his mercy, but Yang Kai had unexpectedly borrowed the power of Heaven and Earth to instantly break through from the Sixth Order to the Seventh Order.
Destroying the Heavenly Sword Palace, shattering his greatest reliance, dragging him down into the dust.
Yang Kai raised his spear and sneered, “Old dog, are you finally willing to come out?”
Zuo Quan Hui narrowed his eyes as he looked towards Yang Kai, their eyes meeting in mid-air and it seemed as if a flame was flickering.
“Kill!” Yang Kai shouted, his massive dragon body wrapped in a supreme dragon prestige, and with a single movement, he appeared in front of everyone from Heavenly Sword Union. The Azure Dragon Spear that seemed to hold up the sky swept out, and a rich World Force burst out from the spear, the power of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage!
Even Zuo Quan Hui did not dare to easily resist such a spear.
Although Yang Kai had obtained the strength of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator in a hurry, that wasn’t because he had cultivated it himself, but because he had borrowed the World Force of the Star Boundary, which could not be controlled at all.
Even so, using his 300 zhang dragon body to activate the Azure Dragon Spear’s attack, Zuo Quan Hui had no choice but to take pity on his own life. Facing this spear, he only used a symbolic Divine Ability to block it before retreating.
Seeing this, the ten Sixth Order cultivators around him quickly scattered.
Under this spear, Heavenly Sword Union’s formation was scattered.
Behind Yang Kai, a tide of Open Heaven Stage cultivators swarmed towards him. The pressure they had been suppressing for a long time was now fully released, each of them fully releasing the power of their Divine Abilities and Artifacts.
The hundreds of Open Heaven Stage masters from Heavenly Sword Union were all scared out of their wits!
Thanks to the Heavenly Sword Palace’s explosion, the Heavenly Sword Union cultivators had suffered heavy casualties, and now only three or four hundred Open Heaven Stage cultivators remained. On the other hand, the Void Land had more than a thousand.
With a difference of three times in numbers, there was no need for any kind of battle formation, just charging forward was enough to crush the enemy into dust.
Not to mention, the Void Land had a huge advantage when it came to the Sixth Order Open Heaven.
Including Yang Kai, there were a total of twenty Sixth Order masters in the Void Land. Six Great Emperors had returned to the Star Boundary previously, so only fourteen remained! Even if Yang Kai wasn’t included, there were still thirteen of them.
On the other hand, Heavenly Sword Union only had ten, so they have three more people!
Back in Heavenly Sword Palace, during Zuo Quan Hui’s meeting, Pei Wen Xuan had proposed to send a message to Yin Xinzhao, asking him to come and help. He had said that as long as there was one more Sixth Order, the situation would be vastly different. With one more Sixth Order, they would be able to gain an advantage of two against one in a local battle, becoming the key to victory.
One more Sixth Order meant victory, so what if there were three more?
The twenty Sixth Order masters from both sides were engaged in a fierce battle, and for a time, they were evenly matched. The three masters of Profound Yang Mountain, Mao Zhe, Geng Qing, and Zhou Ya quietly blended into the thousands of Open Heaven Stage cultivators and rushed into the Heavenly Sword Union army, leaving behind a bloody scene.
With three Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters joining forces, how could these Heavenly Sword Union cultivators, who were at most Fifth Order, be a match for them?
In less than the time it took for an incense stick to burn, the number of people from Heavenly Sword Union had been reduced by half, and the remaining people were now surrounded by many cultivators from the Void Land. There was no way for them to escape, and it was only a matter of time before they were defeated and killed.
After settling the overall situation, Mao Zhe and the others flashed back to the battlefield where the Sixth Order Open Heaven was located.
Huang Quan Heavenly Monarch immediately felt a chill run down his spine, as if he had fallen into an icehouse, a chill running down his spine.
At this moment, the one fighting with Huang Quan was none other than his old enemy, Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch! Speaking of which, the two of them were both from Yin-Yang Heaven’s Crime Star and had been imprisoned for hundreds and thousands of years.
However, during the Dao Exchange Conference, Grey Bones was subdued Yang Kai and infiltrated the Crime Star to spy on him. In the end, his identity was exposed, and in front of Grey Bones, Huang Quan Heavenly Monarch killed his loyal servant, White Hair.
From that day onwards, Grey Bones swore that one day he would kill Huang Quan and avenge White Hair.
When Grey Bones returned to the Void Land with Yang Kai, Huang Quan had fallen into Zuo Quan Hui’s hands. Both sides had fought several times in the Void Territory, but neither of them had been able to defeat the other. In fact, Grey Bones' strength was slightly weaker than Huang Quan’s.
After all, in Crime Star, Huang Quan was the Union Master while Grey Bones was just one of the Crime League's Protectors with a different status and strength.
After exchanging several blows with each other, both of them knew each other’s methods like the back of their hands. If it was just Grey Bones alone, Huang Quan naturally wouldn’t be afraid. However, the three Mountain Lords of Profound Yang Mountain were rushing over!
It is also unfortunate for Huang Quan, Mao Zhe and the others didn’t intentionally target him, but they always give a support to the battlefield. Wherever they went, they were there too.
The battlefield where Huang Quan and Grey Bones were located was the closest to them!
Seeing the three of them rush towards him, Huang Quan didn’t dare hesitate. He knew that he couldn’t stay here for long. Not to mention a Sixth Order, even a Seventh Order Zuo Quan Hui might not be able to escape unscathed. After Yang Kai used the World Force to break through to the Seventh Order and destroyed Heavenly Sword Palace, Heavenly Sword Union’s momentum had been completely destroyed. If he didn’t flee now, when would he?
As for whether Zuo Quan Hui would settle the score with him later… he would first escape.
However, Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch was desperately pestering him, which was quite annoying.
A fierce light flashed across his eyes as Huang Quan Heavenly Monarch ignored the palm strike that Grey Bones was sending towards him and launched a fierce Divine Ability towards him.
He didn’t want to fight to the death with Grey Bones. It wasn’t easy for him to escape from the Crime Star and regain his freedom, so he valued his life more than anyone else. With his Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation and long lifespan, he still had many good days ahead of him.
This attitude was simply to force Grey Bones to stop so he could escape.
Unexpectedly, when faced with this Divine Ability, Grey Bones didn’t even try to dodge, his eyes burning with a deep hatred, as if he was ready to fight to the death.
Huang Quan was shocked, “Madman!”
In his shock, he couldn’t care less about anything else and wanted to withdraw some of his strength to defend himself.
In the next instant, both of them trembled and spat out mouthfuls of blood, their auras weakening as the World Force in their bodies fluctuated violently.
Mao Zhe, Geng Qing, and Zhou Ya arrived just in time!
The three of them formed a triangle and rushed towards Huang Quan. Before they even arrived, the World Force spread out and their Divine Abilities burst forth.
'My life is over!' Huang Quan's face was ashen.
Even if he was at his peak, if he were to face these three, he would most likely die, not to mention the fact that he had been forced into a dead end by Grey Bones.
The halo exploded, and Huang Quan's body shook like a rag sack as it was struck by three Divine Abilities. In an instant, its hair was disheveled and it was covered in blood.
A face that was gnashing its teeth appeared in front of him like a ghost, almost touching his face. Its eyes were filled with burning flames of hatred and blood flowed from its seven orifices, making it look like a real ghost.
Huang Quan’s heart jumped as he felt a sharp pain in his neck!
Grey Bones transformed into a streak of light and brushed past Huang Quan.
Standing a thousand feet behind Huang Quan, Grey Bones looked up into the sky and smiled, “Rest in peace, White Hair, I've avenged you!”
Raising his right hand, he held a bloody head in his hand, and a thousand feet behind him, the headless corpse of Huang Quan Heavenly Monarch stood tall.
Huang Quan hadn’t died yet, the Sixth Order Open HEaven Stage cultivator’s vitality was extremely strong. Even if his head had been twisted off, he wouldn’t have died immediately, but he obviously knew what kind of situation he was in right now. Blinking his eyes, he also looked up into the sky and sighed, “Sigh, why bother!”
Back when he left the Crime Star, if he hadn’t sought refuge with Zuo Quan Hui, he wouldn’t have known how happy he would be now!
He didn’t hold a grudge against Grey Bones. From the day he started cultivating, he knew that on this Martial Dao, if he didn’t kill others, then one day he would be killed by others! The Martial Dao was long, so who didn’t have blood on their hands? How many people didn’t care about life and death?
Sooner or later, such a day would come! However, he didn’t know what kind of preferential treatment he would receive if he went to the Underworld. That little ghost of King Yama was not to be trifled with.
Slowly closing his eyes, his vitality rapidly dissipated.
A thousand feet away, the Sixth Order Open Heaven body's Small Universe has collapsed, releasing a massive amount of World Force that transformed into a violent wave of energy that was visible to the naked eye. The violent energy was then drawn into the World Tree hundreds of thousands of kilometers away.
Grey Bones' hand trembled and he shattered the head in his hand. He bent over and coughed, spitting out pieces of his internal organs.
Zhou Ya flashed over, “Are you alright?”
Grey Bones shook his head, “No worries!”
Although he had taken a blow from Huang Quan and was seriously injured, it wasn’t a matter of life or death, but after killing Huang Quan, the knot in his heart had been untied and his thoughts had become much clearer.
“You heal first!” Zhou Ya urged before following Mao Zhe and Geng Qing to the next battlefield.
Although many of the Sixth Order cultivators were fighting on their own, the sound of Huang Quan's death could not escape their senses. The sound of a Sixth Order Open Heaven's Small Universe collapsing and World Force dissipating was not small, and even the dumbest of people could sense it.
In such a short period of time, one of their side’s Sixth Order cultivator had died, so the remaining people were naturally frightened.
Some of the wise ones immediately began to flee, but how could the Void Land allow them to escape? Naturally, they tried their best to stop them, but the results were not great.
Under normal circumstances, when two people of the same cultivation fought, if one of them insisted on escaping, the other would have no way to stop him. Let alone one, even if the two of them worked together, they might not be able to stop him.
This was why the higher one’s cultivation was, the easier it was to determine victory or defeat, but the harder it was to determine life or death.
If they couldn’t beat the enemy, wouldn’t they run?
Unless one cultivated the Space Laws like Yang Kai and had the ability to seal the world.
Or they set up a Heaven Sealing Earth Locking Formation in advance!
Yang Kai was currently engaged in a fierce battle with Zuo Quan Hui, even though he had the strength of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master, he was unable to divert his attention.
Coincidentally, there really was an Array Dao master in Void Land's side!
