Very soon, the number of demons had diminished greatly. Once they realized that they could not win this battle, the group of demons retreated from the battlefield.
"The demons may harbor a desire to take over the mainland but they do not fight blindly." The Honorable Sir Tianqi looked at Gu Ruoyun and explained, "In order to protect their powers, they would not go all out every time. If there was no hope of victory, they will retreat to prepare for the next battle."
Gu Ruoyun gently nodded and raised her gaze towards the battlefield. Just then, a loud voice cried out and numerous figures charged towards them with a roar. The ferocity in their shouts caused everyone's heart to tremble.
The Master of the Spirit Sect raised his hand and issued the order. Scores of Martial Emperors then charged towards them, once again meeting the demons in battle.
"You guys go as well."
Gu Ruoyun lifted her gaze as her clear, cold voice rang out under the sky, briefly muffling the sounds of bloodshed on the battlefield.
Upon receiving their master's order, the cultivators of the Devil Sect raised their weapons and charged into battle with a roar. Similarly, the spiritual beasts, which had been waiting for their orders, also galloped into battle. They had one goal, that was to destroy the demons!
Under the bright sunlight, the battlefield was soon littered with bodies. However, each time a demon was killed, their bodies would rot and immediately turn into a pile of bones. It was an utterly ghastly sight.
After a long period of time, the number of demons began to dwindle once again and they were losing the battle. This time, the ones on Gu Ruoyun's side did not let them off and chased after them to exterminate every last one of them. It was only when the last demon has had his head chopped off that they finally pulled back.
"We've lost many of our own in this battle once again."
The Honorable Sir Tianqi sighed as he laughed bitterly and helplessly. Even though Gu Ruoyun has previously given the Spirit Sect a large number of pills, not even the pills were enough to resist the demons' power. While they had won in the end, many had lost their lives as well.
"Kill them all!"
A few seconds later, a loud yell sounded from the demon's faction, followed by a powerful force. This time, the number of demons was not as great as before but they were still not to be underestimated.
The Honorable Sir Tianqi's expression changed again, "I never thought that after ten years, the demons would end up producing so many Martial Honors. Their numbers are even more than the ones we have combined! It seems that this time, the Sect Master and the Lord of the Amethyst Underworld Palace have to personally make an appearance. Otherwise, we won't be able to defeat this many Martial Honors!"
Just as he spoke, the Honorable Sir Tianqi noticed over ten figures charging into the battlefield. These figures included the high-level Martial Honors from the two Great Authorities.
He then no longer said another word to Gu Ruoyun and headed towards the battle.
Gu Ruoyun gently stroked her chin and observed the battle. A sense of consideration flashed in her eyes but she did not make a move to follow the Honorable Poison Master and the rest to enter this round of battle.
Everyone's eyes were bloodshot from killing everything in sight, they have lost track of how many demon's blood now stained their swords. All they knew was that they had to kill the enemy before them even if they had to give up everything they had.
Time passed slowly and the initially scorching afternoon sun was now setting. Darkness soon filled the sky.
The Honorable Sir Tianqi began to feel fatigued and was somewhat unable to face off against the powerful enemy before him. He wiped the cold sweat off his forehead before discarding everything else and charging back into battle.
