MARTIAL PEAK 4548
In the Open Heaven Stage, the difference in strength between each grade was enormous. The higher the grade, the more obvious the gap was.
A Sixth Order Open Heaven master could easily deal with ten Fifth Order masters working together and even have the strength to counterattack. Under normal circumstances, these twenty or so Fifth Order masters from the Void Land wouldn’t be of much use on such a battlefield.
However, at this moment, their existence became the key to victory.
Throughout the Sixth Order Open Heaven battlefield, apart from Zhou Ya who was no match for Cang Yan Heavenly Monarch, Yue He was evenly matched with the Sixth Order woman, and even Grey Bones was able to suppress Underworld Heavenly Monarch for a short time.
Zhou Ti and Jin Gang Heavenly Monarch were at a complete disadvantage.
With the addition of so many Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, the enemies who had come to attack had only made things worse. They might not be able to directly confront any Sixth Order, but if they were to stand on the sidelines and wait for the right moment to launch a sneak attack, they would be able to survive. In a life or death battle, these Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage masters were extremely difficult to deal with and kill.
Old Bai even had the leisure to pay attention to Yang Kai’s situation.
He knew that the key to today’s battle was Yang Kai’s side. If Yang Kai could withstand Zuo Quan Hui, Void Land would be able to win, but if he couldn’t, no matter how great their advantage was, it would be useless.
Roaring furiously, spear shadows filled the air as the World Force fluctuated wildly. On the other side of the Void Battlefield, Yang Kai felt like he was constantly on the verge of death.
This was not the first time he had fought against the Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage. Back when he had returned from Shadowless Cave Heaven, in order to dispel the Proprietress' Heart Demon Oath, he had led his men to destroy Boundless Altar and Gold Rainbow Province headquarters.
He did not encounter too much resistance in Boundless Altar, Boundless Altar's Old Ancestor very wisely gave up his headquarter and left with his disciples, leaving Boundless Altar for Yang Kai to deal with.
However, in the Gold Rainbow Province, he had encountered the other party’s Old Ancestor, Li Luoshui, who was a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master. Yang Kai had fought a fierce battle with her and forced her to retreat before finally razing the Gold Rainbow Province to the ground and successfully breaking the Proprietress’ Heart Demon Oath, allowing her to enter closed door cultivation to break through to the Seventh Order.
However, at that time, Li Luoshui had broken through in a hurry and her foundation was unstable, so it was hard to say how much strength she could display.
In comparison, Zuo Quan Hui was an Inner Sect Elder of Thousand Crane Paradise and had been promoted to the Seventh Order for many years. His foundation in this realm was deep and his heritage deep, so the strength he could display was far greater than Li Luoshui’s.
At the very least, Yang Kai had grown a lot recently, and his experience in the Divine Weapon World had greatly strengthened his small universe's foundation, making him much stronger than he was back then. If he were to encounter Li Luoshui now, Yang Kai estimated he would be able to handle her better.
But now, facing this Zuo Quan Hui, he felt an indescribable sense of crisis envelop him, as if a sharp blade was hanging over his head, ready to cut him down at any moment.
Every time he clashed with Zuo Quan Hui, Yang Kai’s blood would boil and his mind would tremble. The World Force contained in the Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage was extremely potent, making Yang Kai feel as if he was fighting against an entire world.
Even though Mao Zhe and Geng Qing were standing off to the side to share the pressure, Yang Kai was still beaten to a miserable state. With the three of them working together, they were unable to gain the slightest advantage.
In less than half a cup of tea’s time, Mao Zhe and Geng Qing were covered in blood, their faces filled with fear.
If it weren’t for the four Fifth Order masters from Zuo Quan Hui’s faction dying in battle, causing Zuo Quan Hui’s mind to go blank for a moment, Yang Kai wouldn’t even have had time to catch his breath.
What made Yang Kai feel fortunate was that this Zuo Quan Hui didn’t have any Divine Ability Manifestation! Although each of his attacks was extremely fierce and his Divine Abilities and Secret Arts were all powerful, there were no signs of him using any Divine Ability Manifestation.
At this moment, if he didn’t use it, it definitely wasn’t because he was hiding it, but because he couldn’t!
It seemed that this Zuo Quan Hui was even weaker than Ti Zheng, who was able to use his Divine Ability Manifestation.
Sword rain poured down like a waterfall, each sword light containing the power of a Seventh Order Open Heaaven Stage. Yang Kai, Mao Zhe and Geng Qing worked together to resist it, and with a sizzling sound, Mao Zhe and Geng Qing both vomited blood and retreated, their faces filled with shock.
They had never fought against a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage before, the gap between a Seventh Order and a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage was like the clouds and mud.
On the surface, it seemed like the three of them were fighting Zuo Quan Hui, but Mao Zhe and Geng Qing both knew that Yang Kai alone had blocked eighty percent of Zuo Quan Hui’s strength, so each of them only had ten percent of it.
Even with just ten percent of it, they had endured countless hardships and felt like they could die at any moment.
While they were shocked by the strength of a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage master, Yang Kai’s foundation was even more terrifying. It wasn’t that they didn’t know Yang Kai’s strength, they had experienced it on Shadowless Cave Heaven’s Profound Yang Mountain, but they hadn’t expected him to be so strong!
Both of them were Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, but Mao Zhe had cultivated to the peak of the Sixth Order. If he had enough resources and opportunities, he could try to break through to the Seventh Order.
However, compared to Yang Kai, he, a peak Sixth Order like him, was simply laughable.
On the other hand, Yang Kai had only broken through to the Sixth Order not long ago. If he were to break through to the peak of the Sixth Order, wouldn’t even an ordinary Seventh Order not be his opponent?
How could there be such a monster in this world!?
Zuo Quan Hui was also shocked. A mere Sixth Order being able to fight him for such a long time without dying, if he hadn’t experienced it himself, he would never have believed it.
Every time he thought he could cut Yang Kai down with his sword, this little brat would always find a chance to survive and escape from death. This little brat’s grasp of opportunities was indescribable, and his small universe's foundation was even more abnormal.
Even a peak Sixth Order master would not be able to withstand such a long bombardment, but Yang Kai managed to block it, not only blocking it, but also using every means possible to counterattack.
Zuo Quan Hui was enraged and his attacks became even fiercer. Yang Kai, Mao Zhe, and Geng Qing immediately felt an even more violent energy rush towards them.
In less than ten breaths of time, Mao Zhe and Geng Qing’s blood and flesh flew out.
After defeating the two of them, Zuo Quan Hui didn’t take advantage of this opportunity to kill them. To him, Yang Kai was his true target, and the others were just additions. As long as he could kill Yang Kai, it would be impossible for the others to block his attack, and they would all die.
Thousands of sword lights suddenly converged and shot towards Yang Kai!
In the vast void, only the brilliance of this sword remained!
Yang Kai’s pupils suddenly shrank to the size of a needle tip as a sense of crisis filled his heart. In this moment of life and death, instead of retreating, he raised his spear and charged forward.
Without a sound, the light exploded and almost enveloped half of the void.
Amidst the light, Yang Kai’s figure rushed out, with a bloody hole between his waist and abdomen piercing through his entire body. However, he seemed to be unaware of what was happening, his face expressionless as he thrust his spear forward.
Zuo Quan Hui’s face was so gloomy that it was almost dripping water. Gritting his teeth, he shouted, “A foolish struggle is meaningless!”
Swinging his sword, he poured his Seventh Order Open Heaven World Force into his sword and gently pushed it towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai suddenly grinned, “Your disciple is about to die!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a miserable scream rang out from the other side. When Zuo Quan Hui turned his head to look, he saw Zhou Ti’s left hand covering his right arm as he staggered backwards. His right arm had already disappeared and blood spurted out like a fountain.
In front of Zhou Ti, Mo Mei’s hands transformed into a series of hand seals as she sent out a series of Divine Abilities. Behind Zhou Ti, Old Bai and a few other Fifth Order masters released a series of Secret Techniques, forcing him to panic.
Zhou Ti was in danger!
He was already seriously injured and wasn’t Mo Mei’s opponent, so Old Bai and the others coming to support her only made things worse. Amongst the several Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage Battlefields, he was the most miserable. After barely resisting for a while, one of his arms was sent flying.
Mo Mei obviously didn’t intend to give him any time to catch his breath. Under the World Force’s pressure, her Divine Ability and Secret Technique were constantly being released.
Zhou Ti cried out miserably, “Master, save me!”
This shout came at just the right time when Zuo Quan Hui looked over. Seeing Zhou Ti in danger, Zuo Quan Hui could only grit his teeth and rush towards Zhou Ti.
In order to avenge his Disciple Zhao Xing, he had not hesitated to leave the Sect and take his faction's Fifth Order and Sixth Order disciples out of Thousand Crane Paradise. He had even promised them a great deal of benefits and had taken in Underworld, Cang Yan, and Jin Gang, but who would have thought that not only had he failed to kill Yang Kai, but his Fifth Order Disciples had also died first?
Although these disciples weren’t Sixth Order, they had all been carefully taught by him over the years. When they died, his heart ached.
However, if he could kill Yang Kai and destroy these Open Heaven Stage masters from the Void Land, he could avenge them and let them die a worthy death.
But if Zhou Ti also die here, no matter how many people he killed in the Void Land, he would not be able to make up for this loss.
He was originally seeking revenge for a Sixth Order Disciple, so how could he allow another Sixth Order Disciple to die again?
So after hearing Zhou Ti’s cry for help, Zuo Quan Hui didn’t hesitate at all and immediately turned around and rushed over.
Suddenly, an extremely strong energy fluctuation burst out from behind him as the Golden Crow’s cry rang out and the Great Sun’s light flashed, lighting up the darkness of the void.
The cold moonlight suddenly poured down, complementing the radiance of the sun.
Zuo Quan Hui turned around and stared back, his eyes bulging.
He saw a strange scene.
Between the world and void, Yang Kai stood, bathed in blood, his hands forming a Spirit Art, the dazzling sun and the cold moon hanging behind him.
Sun and Moon shining together!
A mysterious force surged out, and even with Zuo Quan Hui’s knowledge and experience, he was unable to determine what this force was. He could only feel that under the influence of this force, even his thoughts seemed to be affected.
What kind of Divine Ability was this? Zuo Quan Hui was confused.
He knew that Yang Kai was able to use the Golden Crow Sun Casting Divine Ability Manifestation, so it must be the Great Sun floating behind him. But what about the full moon? It didn’t seem like a Divine Ability Manifestation, just a projection of a Secret Technique.
However, under the radiance of this sun and moon, a mysterious power was secretly surging. This power was so strange and powerful that even a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator couldn’t underestimate it.
