MARTIAL PEAK 4464


Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch lowered his head, “We were too careless.”


The Underworld Heavenly Monarch looked at him quietly, his gaze deep and profound, causing Grey Bones' hair to stand on end. Could it be that the other party had seen through his disguise?


If his identity were to be exposed here, he would be finished. Although he was a Sixth Order, he was still inferior to the Underworld Heavenly Monarch and Jin Gang Heavenly Monarch, not to mention that this was the headquarter of Crime League. Besides him, there were also eight Sixth Order cultivators gathered here. Once his identity was exposed, only death would await him.


“Where were you ambushed? Take me there.”


Just as Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch was worrying about personal gains and losses, Underworld Heavenly Monarch suddenly spoke.


Grey Bones knew he couldn’t refuse, so he could only grit his teeth and agree.


A moment later, a group of three figures soared into the sky and flew off in a certain direction.


Along the way with the leader of Crime League and a Vice Union Master to investigate the traces of the battlefield, Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch tried to send a message to Yang Kai several times, but unfortunately, he failed.


He didn’t know if Underworld Heavenly Monarch would be able to see anything from the remnants of the battlefield, but he faintly felt that he was in some kind of trouble. He secretly made up his mind that if the situation was really bad, he would immediately think of a way to escape and perhaps even have a chance of survival.


Half a day later, the three of them arrived at the site of the previous battlefield and landed in a pile of dismembered corpses. Looking around, the ground was covered in bloodstains that had not yet dried up, and traces of battle between Open Heaven Stage masters could be seen all around them. The corpses had long since lost their vitality.


The Jin Gang Heavenly Monarch took a step forward and stood in front of one of them. After examining him carefully, his expression became solemn, “Brother Wu Nian…”


This person was none other than the deceased Heavenly Monarch Wu Nian, but his head had been smashed into his chest.


However, the Underworld Heavenly Monarch didn’t say anything, only sweeping his eyes over the battlefield, gently closing his eyes and silently sensing.


Grey Bones stood behind him, his eyes flickering as he wondered if he would be able to kill this Underworld Heavenly Monarch if he were to launch a sneak attack…


If he could kill Underworld Heavenly Monarch and it was only a single Jin Gang Heavenly Monarch left, although he was not a match, he was confident he could escape. Not all Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters were as freakish as Yang Kai.


However, if he couldn’t hit them in one blow, he would be surrounded by two peak Sixth Order masters. With his current condition, he would likely die!


Just as he was hesitating, the Underworld Heavenly Monarch suddenly opened his eyes and frowned, “Three Sixth Order Open Heaen left their auras here!”


Three?


Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch couldn’t help being startled, thinking, how could there be three? At that time, besides Crime League, there was only Yang Kai, could it be that there were two more?


This was really a big help! He couldn’t help relaxing a lot as he followed Underworld Heavenly Monarch's words, “At that time, one of them held me back while the other two worked together to deal with Brother Wu Nian, but in the end…”


A cold light flashed across the Underworld Heavenly Monarch’s eyes, “These people from the Cave Heaven Paradise are really too presumptuous, bullying people like this, do they really think they can afford to not put their eyes on my Crime League?”


Turning to look at Wu Nian’s corpse, he solemnly declared, “Brother Wu Nian, rest assured, this Union Master will definitely avenge you!”


After instructing Jin Gang Heavenly Monarch to collect Wu Nian’s corpse, the three of them returned to their original route.



In his hiding place, Lu Jing stared curiously at the four people who had come in with Yang Kai. Although he didn’t know who these four people were, he could feel their strength.


None of them were people he could afford to provoke, especially those two fellows with thick Demonic Qi. One look and he could tell they were disciples of the Myriad Demons Heaven.


“Find a place to stay. If there’s any news, I’ll let you know,” Yang Kai said before heading to his own residence.


Yin Xinzhao said gloomily, “Don’t make us wait too long, we don’t have much patience.”


Yang Kai coldly snorted and ignored him.


Yin Xinzhao’s low laughter came from behind him, sounding quite proud.


“Mo Sheng, clean up that place,” Pei Wen Xuan ordered.


“Yes, Senior Brother Pei!” The Fifth Order Open Heaven, who had been following behind Pei Wen Xuan all this time, respectfully replied before walking to the side of the cave. Demonic Qi swirled around his hand as he quickly opened up a simple cave.


On the other side, Yang Kai sat cross-legged, his face filled with shock.


The Fifth Order Open Heaven that had been following Pei Wen Xuan all this time was actually called Mo Sheng? Had he heard wrongly, or was the tone similar?


The Great Demon God was also called Mo Sheng, but he had been killed by him and the other Great Emperors of the Star Boundary. In the end, Wu Kuang had used his Heaven Devouring Battle Law to swallow Mo Sheng’s body and seize his body. This was a different kind of possession.


Afterwards, Wu Kuang left the Star Boundary and disappeared without a trace.


Wu Kuang was a man of great talent and skill, with outstanding aptitude. If it weren’t for this, it would have been impossible for him to create such a Heaven Devouring Battle Law by himself. Back in the Star Boundary, he was publicly recognized as the number one master of the Star Boundary, and in the battle between the Great Emperors in the Star Fragments Sea, countless Great Emperors had died at his hands.


Yang Kai didn’t have a good impression of Wu Kuang. Wu Kuang’s temperament was brutal, his methods cruel, and he was definitely not a good person. When Wu Kuang left the Star Boundary and went to explore a higher level of Martial Dao, Yang Kai also let out a sigh of relief.


To be honest, if Wu Kuang was really allowed to remain in the Star Boundary, he wouldn’t feel at ease.


After parting ways in the Star Boundary, Yang Kai had no intention of inquiring about Wu Kuang. Since they didn’t have much of a friendship, it didn’t matter if he lived or died.


Unexpectedly, he had encountered a fellow named Mo Sheng here, and unfortunately, he was from the Myriad Demons Heaven! However, this person’s appearance had nothing to do with Mo Sheng or Wu Kuang.


Who was this guy?


Was he another person named Mo Sheng, or was he the hidden Wu Kuang?


Yang Kai suddenly remembered that this guy had once followed Ti Zheng to Shattered Heaven, but even Ti Zheng had met with an accident and died, so how had he survived?


Since he couldn’t figure it out, it wasn’t appropriate for him to rashly probe. Yang Kai could only swallow his doubts.


On the other hand, his current situation was a bit uncomfortable. Yin Xinzhao and Pei Wen Xuan had broken through his and Grey Bones' cooperation, but he was unable to silence them.


Since it wasn’t convenient for him to make a move, he could only use someone else to silencce them!


On Crime Star, there were many people who had the ability to kill these two. Crime League was a force that needed to borrow strength from others. As Yang Kai immersed himself in his thoughts, a vague plan slowly surfaced in his mind.


If everything went smoothly, before long, Yin Xinzhao and Pei Wen Xuan would both die on Crime Star.


As time passed, Yang Kai, Yin Xinzhao, Pei Wen Xuan, and the other three continued to attack, each time gaining some kind of harvest.


The Fifth Order called Zhuang Wei, whose golden bracelet is lit with stars, was close to Yang Kai’s and was about to surpass him.


The smooth progress made Zhuang Wei overjoyed. In the past half a year, the four of them had been searching all over the place and had only managed to accumulate about thirty stars after much difficulty. After meeting Yang Kai, in less than a month, they had actually obtained all of their previous gains.


Only now did he understand why Yang Kai had so many stars on his wrist.


Secretly calculating, if he could get Senior Brother Yin and Senior Brother Pei to kill Yang Kai, then he would definitely become the champion of this Dao Exchange. Zhuang Wei’s heart was filled with the great hope of becoming the champion of this Dao Exchange, so he was more active than anyone else.


Zhuang Wei’s harvest was great, and Yang Kai’s plan was also slowly being carried out. There were still about five months until the end of the Dao Exchange Conference, so there was still plenty of time.


On the other hand, Yang Kai had repeatedly tried to probe this man named Mo Sheng, but he had been unable to find out his identity. After several attempts, Yang Kai decided not to bother with him, lest he expose himself.


On this day, Yang Kai once again received a message from Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch and had just finished investigating when Zhuang Wei’s figure appeared at the entrance of the cave and asked with concern, “Is there any news?”


“That’s right. Tomorrow, a patrol team from Crime League will be dispatched. Two Fifth Order masters will lead the team, a total of twelve!” Yang Kai nodded.


“Very good!” Zhuang Wei grinned and looked at Yang Kai from head to toe, praising, “You’re also very good. Don’t worry, after this Dao Exchange, I will naturally speak up for you in front of Senior Brother Yin and Senior Brother Pei. It’s better to squash enmity than keep it alive!”


“Many thanks,” Yang Kai smiled lightly.


Zhuang Wei nodded and turned around, a cold light flashing across his eyes. He knew that Yin Xinzhao and Pei Wen Xuan were only using Yang Kai’s spy, and will attack him when the Dao Exchange Conference was about to end.


After all, at that time, the spy in Yang Kai’s hands was no longer of any use. Killing Yang Kai would allow him to obtain a massive amount of battle achievements. What he said just now was just to appease him, how could he really provoke Yin Xinzhao and Pei Wen Xuan just because of an outsider?


The next day, under Yang Kai’s lead, the group of four left their hiding place and rushed off in a certain direction.


Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch is a Protector of Crime League and held a high position. Using his authority to investigate and even adjust the patrol routes of Crime League's patrol teams was a piece of cake.


The people of Crime League who had been killed were all from Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch information. Otherwise, with Crime Star being so big, Yang Kai wouldn’t know where to find them.


In a valley surrounded by mountains, Yang Kai landed.


“Is it here?” Zhuang Wei asked.


“The patrol team will arrive in two hours, so make your preparations,” Yang Kai didn’t explain further.


Everyone had experienced this kind of situation many times, so they were naturally familiar with it. Each of them used their own Concealment Techniques to hide themselves in the shadows.


Underworld Cave, Crime Star’s High Command, Grey Bones, who was standing guard, suddenly heard a dull bell ring from Underworld Cave and his expression changed.


This bell was actually the Union Master’s summons. Unless it was something important, it wouldn’t ring. This was the first time he had heard it since Grey Bones joined Crime League.


After instructing his subordinates to continue to stand guard, he hurriedly walked towards the meeting hall.


When he arrived at the main hall, he glanced around and saw that there were four Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters present. The Union Master, Underworld Heavenly Monarch, sat at the head of the table, while two Vice Union Masters, Jin Gang Heavenly Monarch and Cang Yan Heavenly Monarch sat on the left and right.


Grey Bones Heavenly Monarch greets the Vice Union Masters and sat down.


For some reason, he suddenly felt uneasy, as if something extremely bad was about to happen.
