Inside the Ancestral Land, the battle was fierce.
The Small Stone Race’s unafraid of death made it so that they would not have a good ending without anyone controlling them. A large number of Small Stone Race members rushed towards the four Territory Lords, but they were unable to get close to them. From afar, the Territory Lords’ Secret Techniques blasted them to pieces and scattered them on the ground.
Even the Black Ink Clan’s army, which had once again charged forward, began to encircle these disorderly fellows.
At every moment, a large number of Small Stone Race members scattered. [MSN: I felt bad for these small stone race somehow.]
However, there were even more Small Stone Army appearing from Yang Kai’s side, seemingly endless in number. Yang Kai’s laughter became louder, as if he had lost his mind.
Di Wu had already restrained his aura and was hiding within the Black Ink Clan army, watching vigilantly.
Yang Kai’s act of wreaking havoc in the No-Return Pass and sacrificing two million Small Stone Race soldiers was still fresh in his mind, so when Yang Kai summoned these Small Stone Race soldiers, he immediately distanced himself from Yang Kai to avoid being surrounded by them, lest the scene from back then repeat itself.
At that time, the Royal Lord had been injured and his aura had fallen greatly. It had taken him more than a thousand years to recover. If he, the Pseudo-Royal Lord, had taken such a blow, the situation would have been even worse.
Moreover, if he remembered correctly, there were also masters among the unique creatures of the Small Stone Race.
In the past, the Black Ink Clan had discovered many giant Small Stone Race members that were over a hundred zhang tall, each of them possessing strength equivalent to an Eighth Order Human Race cultivator. Although their intelligence was low and they could not display their true strength, they were still not to be underestimated.
After observing for a long time, Di Wu discovered that the Small Stone Race that Yang Kai had summoned this time did not have any Small Stone Race powerhouse with a hundred zhang height. The strongest of them was only a few dozen zhang tall, equivalent to a Seventh Order Human Race and Black Ink Clan's Feudal Lord.
He didn’t put these Small Stone Race members in his eyes, even the four Territory Lords could easily kill them, let alone him.
The scene became more chaotic as the number of Small Stone Race troops Yang Kai summoned increased. The four Territory Lords were still alright, they had already formed a Four Directions Array, their auras connected to each other as they guarded the four directions. No matter how many Small Stone Race members threw themselves at them, they would be wiped out.
On the other hand, the remaining Black Ink Clan army, even with the assistance of the Killing Array, was somewhat unable to hold on.
Half of the million strong Black Ink Clan army had been killed by Yang Kai, leaving only five hundred thousand behind. Now that they had engaged in a fierce battle with the Small Stone Race’s army, their numbers had sharply decreased. Although the Small Stone Race’s losses seemed to be greater, if this continued, the Black Ink Clan would definitely be wiped out.
Although the situation was unfavorable, no Black Ink Clan dared to retreat. The Territory Lords were still fighting, so how could they retreat?
Di Wu finally made his move, but he didn’t target Yang Kai. Instead, he hid in the Black Ink Clan army and slaughtered the Small Stone Race army. With his cautious personality, he decided to continue watching.
After a full four days, only a few tens of thousands of the Black Ink Clan army remained, each of them covered in blood and their auras weak. Although they were in a sorry state, the surviving Black Ink Clan members all wore excited expressions.
They had won!
They had killed all of the Small Stone Race members who had rushed towards them.
Over the past few days, at least two million Small Stone Race soldiers had died under their hands!
This wasn’t to say that they were very powerful, but rather that there was a Pseudo-Royal Lord hidden among them. The strongest of them was only equivalent to a Seventh Order master or Feudal Lord, so when faced with a Pseudo-Royal Lord, they couldn’t even fight back. Di Wu’s casual attack could easily kill hundreds or thousands of Small Stone Race members.
What’s more, the Black Ink Clan still had the help of the Great Array, the lightning and fire that fell from the sky had caused a great deal of damage to the Small Stone Race.
This was only the result of the Black Ink Clan’s army.
Although the number of Small Stone Race killed by the four Territory Lords wasn’t more than two million, it was still close to a million.
The originally noisy Ancestral Land had suddenly become much more spacious, with only the scattered rocks and debris covering the mountains and plains, indicating the liveliness of the Small Stone Race’s army.
In just a few days, nearly three million Small Stone Race members had been killed. Such losses were not small.
At this moment, Yang Kai no longer summoned the Small Stone Race and was instead fighting the four Territory Lords alone!
His face was filled with anger and his eyes were bloodshot, his aura fluctuating wildly as if his mental state was unstable.
He rushed towards one of the four Territory Lords again, only to be sent flying back again. If it weren’t for him borrowing the power of the Ancestral Land and using the Ancestral Qi to form an impenetrable barrier around his body, he would have found it difficult to withstand.
Of course, the suppression of the Ancestral Land on the Territory Lords was also extremely important.
Even a Pseudo-Royal Lord like Di Wu had been suppressed by the Ancestral Land’s current suppression, let alone the Territory Lords. The four Territory Lords had been suppressed even more severely, about twenty to thirty percent of their strength.
In a one-on-one fight, it was difficult for them to be Yang Kai’s opponent, but with the four of them forming a Four Directions Array, no matter which Territory Lord Yang Kai rushed towards, it was equivalent to facing their combined attack. In this situation, how could Yang Kai win?
It could be said that the four Territory Lords working together were indeed inferior to Di Wu, the Pseudo-Royal Lord, but they were far stronger than an Innate Territory Lord at his peak. This was also the reason why they could fight against Yang Kai.
In the beginning, when the four Territory Lords faced Yang Kai, this killing star, they still felt fear.
However, after a direct confrontation, they suddenly realized that this guy was not as powerful as they had imagined!
In other words, it wasn’t that he wasn’t strong enough, it was just that after using that strange technique that could injure one’s Soul, he had suffered a great backlash, and the current Yang Kai was clearly somewhat muddle-headed.
In the words of the Human Race, this person was already a fool and couldn’t display his full strength.
This caused the Territory Lords to calm down. The Small Stone Race had been exterminated and Yang Kai had fallen into such a situation. As long as they were given enough time, they were confident they could slowly exhaust Yang Kai to death.
The Ancestral Qi in the Ancestral Land couldn’t be endless, so when it couldn’t protect him anymore, it would naturally be his death!
Killing Yang Kai! This was such a moving honor. If the Royal Lord wanted to create another Pseudo-Royal Lord in the future, the few of them would definitely become the first to obtain the final results, just like Di Wu!
It wasn’t that Innate Territory Lords didn’t want more power, it was just that they could only become Pseudo-Royal Lord at most, and the price they had to pay was too great. Unless it was absolutely necessary, it was impossible for them to become Pseudo-Royal Lord.
However, their wish was destined to be in vain. This time, killing Yang Kai was Di Wu’s responsibility, and this was the purpose of his birth as a Pseudo-Royal Lord. Now that the situation had turned for the better, how could Di Wu hand over the honor of killing Yang Kai to another Territory Lord?
If that was the case, it would make him seem too incompetent.
After several days of observation, Di Wu finally confirmed one thing. Yang Kai… was at the end of his rope. Facing such a situation, it was impossible for him to turn the tables.
Di Wu couldn’t help feeling a bit relieved that Yang Kai had used his Secret Technique and ended up exposing his trump card.
Borrowing the power of the Ancestral Land and the three million Small Stone Army soldiers was definitely his hidden trump card. If he had used these two methods to deal with him while he was conscious…
If such a situation really occurred, he would definitely be caught off guard. At that time, with the strength Yang Kai displayed, it was highly likely that this operation would fail.
Di Wu shuddered at the thought.
Although they had lost four Territory Lords and a million Black Ink Clan troops this time, they were nothing compared to the harvest they were about to obtain.
When Yang Kai was once again sent flying by one of the Territory Lords, the Ancestral Qi light barrier around his body became extremely dim, and Di Wu no longer hesitated and rushed out.
Yang Kai landed on the ground, but before he could even stabilize himself, Di Wu had already appeared in front of him. Using his hand as a blade, he sent out a violent burst of energy that pierced through the protective barrier of his Ancestral Qi and into Yang Kai’s chest.
Di Wu roared, “Die!”
Success! Di Wu’s heart suddenly became excited. He could even feel the heartbeat in Yang Kai’s chest. Was that heartbeat so… powerful?
Di Wu frowned, instinctively feeling that something was wrong, and looked up.
Yang Kai stood in front of him, motionless, his black hair hanging over his forehead, a thick shadow blocking his eyes, making it impossible to see his expression.
Only the corner of his mouth suddenly curled up.
Immediately after, Di Wu heard something that made his hair stand on end.
“You finally couldn’t resist jumping out!”
Yang Kai suddenly raised his head and Di Wu immediately saw a pair of blood-red eyes filled with cruelty and murderous intent, but there was no madness in them.
He had been tricked!
This thought immediately flashed across Di Wu’s mind. What he had seen was only what Yang Kai had shown him, causing him to think that this Human Race’s Killing Star had been in a state of confusion and had inadvertently exposed his trump cards one after another, making him think that his opponent was powerless to resist the combined attacks of four Territory Lords, making him think that his opponent had reached a dead end.
Everything was just to lure him here.
But what was he going to do? In such a desperate situation, did he have any means to turn the tables?
No matter what Yang Kai wanted to do, Di Wu would not allow him to freely use it.
As soon as Yang Kai’s voice fell, Di Wu suddenly thrust his hand deeper into Yang Kai’s chest. As long as he was an inch closer, he would be able to pierce through Yang Kai’s heart.
For an Eighth Order Open Heaven cultivator like Yang Kai, this might not be a fatal injury, but it was definitely enough to severely wound him!
However, he had only just exerted his strength when a large hand grabbed his wrist, sending out a burst of energy that rendered Di Wu’s hand blade immobile.
In terms of cultivation, Di Wu, a Pseudo-Royal Lord, was indeed much stronger than Yang Kai, but in terms of pure strength, Yang Kai, a Pseudo-Divine Dragon, was far stronger than Di Wu.
With such a close distance, how could Di Wu move?
Due to this sudden change, Di Wu didn’t panic and instead clenched his other hand into a fist and punched towards Yang Kai’s face.
But before he could hit it, Yang Kai’s other hand gripped it tightly.
One was a Pseudo-Royal Lord while the other was a Pseudo-Divine Dragon. Both of them stood less than half a foot away from each other as they fought.
