The reason why the four of them had acted so decisively just now was because yang kai had once fought one against four and then wiped out all of them.
Logically speaking, yang kai should have been able to display his full strength and eliminate all of them.
However, he did not do so, instead capturing junior brother ding and leaving!
One of them’s eyes lit up, “could it be that he’s getting weaker!”
Another person nodded, “that’s possible!”
It had been almost half a month since this trial began, and after such a long time, yang kai had been fighting alone. No matter how strong he was, no matter how strong his small universe's foundation was, after such a long time, his strength would definitely drop.
Perhaps the current him no longer had the ability to fight one against four!
“we have to spread this news!” The first person to speak was excited. All this time, they had felt incomparable despair in this trial. Although lang ya have many open heaven, yang kai was proficient in the space laws and could fight and escape easily. From time to time, he would suddenly launch a sneak attack and capture people, making it impossible for them to defend themselves.
But now, this hopeless situation finally had a glimmer of hope.
This yang kai… wasn’t made of iron, nor could he maintain such terrifying combat strength for a long time!
All of this was exchanged for countless resources and blood by those who had been eliminated. Their sacrifices would not be wasted, and victory would eventually belong to lang ya!
Soon, the news spread to every surviving lang ya open heaven stage cultivator, causing everyone to become excited!
In fact, their guess was not wrong. Ordinary sixth order cultivator who had experienced such intense battles for such a long time, even if they were to face a group of enemies who were weaker than them, they would definitely be exhausted and eventually lose.
During this time, he could refine the open heaven pill to restore his strength, but how much could he restore? How could lang ya's open heaven masters give him time to recover?
But yang kai was different. He had now truly experienced the benefits of raising living creatures in his small universe.
The number of living beings who had migrated from pear flower cave heaven now numbered in the tens of millions, constantly providing him with a large amount of world strength to improve his small universe's foundation.
As for the large number of small stone race, their reproduction rate was extremely fast, and under the premise of the same number, the benefits the small stone race could bring to yang kai were ten times that of ordinary living beings!
On top of that, the flow of time in his small universe was different from that of the outside world, at least twice as fast, so even though he had not rested for half a month and had been constantly fighting, yang kai did not show any signs of fatigue. On the contrary, he was still full of energy, and his consumption was nothing compared to the growth of the small universe's foundation.
This kind of intense battle could last until the end of time!
The reason why he hadn’t single-handedly wipe out deng chi’s team and instead captured one of them was mainly because of the ink matters.
If one of the lang ya' open heaven stage was inked, with so many people and so many eyes, they would not reveal anything to him.
Only when he was alone like the time with gu ling’er would he be able to find some clues or even find out the identity of the other inked members.
Therefore, in less than the time it takes for an incense stick to burn, deng chi, who had been meditating to heal his injuries, could only watch as yang kai returned and captured one junior brother after another!
The several junior brothers were about to go crazy. If it weren’t for li yuan wang’s orders, they could have fled to another spirit province, but for some reason, the sect master had ordered them to return to their respective positions, so no matter how they fled, they could only flee in this spirit province.
In fact, like before, it was impossible to ask for help from other teams.
This was because the other teams couldn’t disobey orders to leave their own spirit province to assist them.
The sect master was clearly giving yang kai a chance to defeat them one by one! No one knew why, but they guessed that the sect master was disappointed in them. If so many people in a small team couldn’t deal with yang kai, then asking for help from another team would be a bit embarrassing.
Under li yuan wang’s command, the situation actually developed in yang kai’s favor.
Only yang kai understood li yuan wang’s intentions and was trying his best to cooperate.
The flames of war burned all of lang ya’s spirit provinces. Wherever yang kai went, the open heaven team stationed on the spirit province would be destroyed one by one. Every single one of them who was captured by yang kai was beaten black and blue, but even so, none of them admitted defeat.
After deng chi’s team sent out the news, their resistance became even more intense. Every single one of them who was eliminated was completely exhausted from the battle with yang kai, unable to continue fighting.
Of course, in this way, compared to those who were eliminated at the beginning, they were beaten even worse.
However, they were willing to do so. Their own elimination was not meaningless. As long as they could exhaust yang kai’s strength, they would be able to fight for more opportunities for their remaining fellow disciples.
They hoped that one of them would be able to step forward and defeat yang kai, then win the victory that belonged to lang ya.
As time passed, this expectation slowly transformed into despair.
Although the open heaven stage cultivators who had been eliminated would no longer contact their fellow disciples who were participating in this trial, they could still communicate with each other.
At this moment, many of the eliminated open heaven stage cultivators were using their identity tokens to chat.
“i’ve received news that senior sister zhou’s team was targeted by that yang guy half an hour ago!”
“how is the situation?”
“up until now, four people have been eliminated, leaving only senior sister zhou and junior brother jia!”
“i wish senior sister zhou and junior brother the best of luck to beat that yang fellow!”
“cough cough… i’ve also been eliminated. Greetings, senior brothers!” Junior brother jia replied.
Everyone fell silent.
A moment later, someone sent a message, “senior sister zhou is in trouble!”
Previously, senior sister zhou had been defeated by yang kai before the trial officially began, so everyone knew that senior sister zhou wasn’t yang kai’s opponent. Now that yang kai had won hundreds of times, his momentum had soared, so how could senior sister zhou be his opponent?
As soon as the message was delivered, another message arrived, “senior sister zhou has also been eliminated!”
“so fast! What’s wrong with this yang guy? Why does it feel like his strength is inexhaustible? Didn’t he say that manpower is sometimes poor? Did honored master lie to me again?”
“senior sister zhou? Is senior sister zhou here?”
“scram! Ignore me, i don’t want to talk!”
“good, good, senior sister zhou can rest in peace, junior brother will not disturb you.”
At the same time, on spirit province where senior sister zhou’s team was stationed, yang kai stood next to the dispirited senior sister zhou and looked into the distance.
There was a trace of blood at the corner of senior sister zhou’s mouth as she coughed lightly, her eyes filled with complex emotions as she stared at the man beside her.
Compared to the last time he defeated her, yang kai’s current strength hadn’t changed much, but senior sister zhou could clearly feel that this man’s aura had increased.
This was the aura of invincibility. This aura was invisible and intangible, but senior sister zhou could clearly feel it. This was the aura yang kai had accumulated after defeating hundreds of open heaven stage masters from lang ya. It was as dazzling as the sun and as dazzling as the stars.
Senior sister zhou couldn’t help feeling that with yang kai’s current state, even if there was a seventh order master standing in front of him, he could still win.
Lang ya open heaven stage had many geniuses, especially those who were ranked at the top of the sixth order, all of them would be dazzling stars in the sky.
However, compared to this man in front of her, all of them instantly dull.
She had never seen such a man before…
“there aren’t many people left, right?” Yang kai suddenly asked.
Senior sister zhou knew what he was asking, so after a moment of silence she said, “only the team led by eldest senior brother yue mang remains. If you can win, this trial will end.”
Yang kai nodded lightly, “yue mang is not bad.”
He had fought with yue mang before and knew that this eldest senior brother of lang ya’s sixth-order was indeed extraordinary.
When senior sister zhou heard this, she couldn’t help rolling her eyes. Only yang kai could so casually evaluate senior brother yue mang, but she had no way to refute him.
“can’t you just fight seriously for once? Don’t try to pull some kind of evil trick!” Senior sister zhou said angrily.
Yang kai couldn’t help laughing, “your team consists of at least five or six people, some even have seven or eight of them gathered together. With the same cultivation, how can you expect me to fight them seriously? If i capture them with my own strength, how could it be considered evil trick?”
Senior sister zhou blushed slightly, somewhat speechless.
From a certain perspective, every opponent defeated by yang kai was won without any fancy tricks. This was something senior sister zhou had personally witnessed.
However, what made senior sister zhou somewhat unconvinced was that she had been defeated by yang kai without even using her full strength!
Not being able to display their full strength was equivalent to not being able to fight fairly. The battle had ended too quickly!
In other words, the gap between their strengths was simply too great, but even if senior sister zhou wasn’t convinced, she had to admit it.
“good, this trial really should end now! Senior sister, take care of your injuries, i’ll take my leave first!” Finished speaking, yang kai stepped forward and his figure quickly faded away.
Senior sister zhou turned her head to look towards the flowerless spirit province where senior brother yue mang was leading his team. Whether the result of this battle was lang ya barely managing to preserve their face or yang kai’s arrogant smile, no one knew.
However, the messages from the many lang ya open heaven's identity tokens quickly spread.
“hurry, hurry, hurry, that yang kai has already rushed towards flowerless spirit province. This is the last battle, let’s go watch and cheer for eldest senior brother!”
“eldest senior brother yue mang will win, lang ya will win!”
As the world strength fluctuated wildly, streams of light shot up into the sky and rushed towards the flowerless spirit province. All of them had been healing themselves, but now that this was their last battle, they naturally didn’t want to miss out on this opportunity.
By the time yang kai arrived at flowerless spirit province, there were already several hundred open heaven masters gathered in the sky. Most of these open heaven masters had yet to recover from their injuries, and many of them had blood stains on their faces and eyes, making them look quite comical.
