Yang Kai came to a sudden realization as his long-suffering confusion was finally resolved. No wonder after thousands of years, there had only been ten Great Emperors. It turned out that there was still a shackle that could contain the world. Just like how Tongxuan Continent could only give birth to Saint Realm cultivators or Void King Realm in the Star Field, this was the limit of the world and was not something a human could reach.
The limit of the Star Boundary was to accommodate ten Great Emperors! Although many people’s cultivations were not inferior to Great Emperors, without the recognition of the Heavens and Earth, they would not be able to become true Great Emperors.
This was the case for the feathered crown man, Yang Yan, and many others like them.
There was also the Holy Spirit…
Yang Kai had always felt that these Holy Spirits were clearly stronger than Emperor Realm masters, yet he felt that they were inferior to Great Emperors. Now, this doubt was finally explained.
The ten Great Emperors were existences recognized by the Heavens and Earth, and they were part of the Heaven and Earth Laws. Even if their cultivation realms were the same, if they really fought, ordinary Holy Spirits would not be able to compare.
“Are there many people like you?”
“It’s not too much,” Yang Yan smiled, “But most of them don’t show themselves in public, so you don’t need to worry too much.” Although there weren’t many existences like her, as time passed, there were many who had reached this point, but because they couldn’t obtain the acknowledgement of the Heavens and Earth, they were unable to advance. At this point in their cultivation, their lifespans were extremely long, and each one of them was a long-lived star, so naturally there were many of them.
Yang Kai suddenly thought of something and frowned, “According to what you said, this World Bottle has a limit to its capacity, so it’s impossible for the eleventh Great Emperor to appear. What should I do in the future?”
Yang Yan was stunned, “You’re thinking too far ahead.”
Yang Kai said solemnly, “There will be a day when that day comes.” Saying so naturally made Yang Yan stunned.
Smiling, Yang Yan said, “You can wait until one of the Great Emperors dies of old age and then fight for the position of Great Emperor.”
Yang Kai shook his head, “We’ll have to wait for a long time.” The lifespan of a Great Emperor was extremely long, if nothing unexpected happened, tens of thousands of years or even hundreds of thousands of years would not be the end. Although it wasn’t enough to say that it was as long as the world, the sun, and the moon, it wasn’t far off.
“Perhaps there is another way,” Yang Yan saw that he was being serious and couldn’t help teasing him.
“What method?” Yang Kai’s eyes lit up.
Yang Yan stretched out her hand and clenched it, “Crush a stone in the bottle and the spot will naturally be empty.”
Yang Kai was stunned for a moment before agreeing, “Good idea, it seems I’ll have to find a Great Emperor to kill him in the future.”
Yang Yan looked at him strangely, “Are you serious?”
Yang Kai laughed loudly, “I’m just joking, don’t be nervous. Since the Great Emperors have been acknowledged by the Heavens and Earth, how could they be so easy to kill? Do you think I’m so ignorant?” If it had been so easy, the ten Great Emperors wouldn’t have changed so slowly.
However, it was undeniable that this was indeed a solution. At that point, when the Great Dao began to compete, who would have any scruples? Would the Great Emperors be slaughtered? In the Battle of Great Emperors, not including Wu Kuang, there were still four Great Emperors who had fallen. From a certain point of view, the four Great Emperors who had broken through had to thank Wu Kuang. If it weren’t for Wu Kuang killing those four, they probably wouldn’t have had a chance to become Great Emperors.
Seeing Yang Kai’s expression flicker, how could Yang Yan not know that he really had such intentions? At this time, it was not good to pour cold water on him, so she could only hope that he would slowly understand the difficulties in the future. Stroking her hair, she said, “Alright, I’ve said everything I need to say, I should go back now.”
“Why are you in such a hurry to leave?” Yang Kai grabbed her arm.
Yang Yan glanced at him disdainfully, “If you have something to say, say it. Let go of your dog paws!”
Yang Kai said, “Let’s go to High Heaven Sect to take a look. Elder Ye misses you a lot.” Ye Xiyun had a deep relationship with Yang Yan; otherwise, she wouldn’t have come out of seclusion and come to High Heaven Sect to help. She didn’t have much respect for Yang Kai, the Sect Master, but she had great respect for Yang Yan.
“I won’t go. You’re now the Star Field’s Master, are you afraid we won’t have a chance to meet again in the future?”
“Speaking of which, I do remember that I want to bring High Heaven Sect to the Star Boundary. Is that a problem?”
“Move the entire place?” Yang Yan was slightly surprised.
Yang Yan frowned, “Aren’t there too many people?”
“Not many, just a few tens of thousands.”
“Just?” Yang Yan looked at him angrily, “The cultivators of the various Star Fields, only those who have reached the peak of their cultivation are qualified to break through the Void Corridor and enter the Star Boundary through the Starlight Way. There are less than five cultivators who enter the Star Boundary every hundred years, yet now you want to bring tens of thousands of people to the Star Boundary. Don't you think that’s too much, isn’t it unfair to the cultivators of other Star Fields?”
“No, it’s fair!”
“It’s their fault for not having a good superior.”
“Since I am a Star Envoy, naturally I should maintain the balance of the various Star Fields. I cannot agree with you being so sneaky.”
“Why don’t you care about your old friendship at all? The High Heaven Sect was founded by you and me after all. It’s said that when one person obtains a chicken, a dog will rise to the heavens. Now that I’ve become the Star Field’s Master and you’re a Star Envoy, I want to seek benefits for Heng Luo Star Field,” Yang Kai said angrily. In his plan, not only did he want to relocate High Heaven Sect, but he also wanted to support the entire Heng Luo Star Field’s talents.
“Haha, that’s your business.”
Just as Yang Kai was about to continue fighting, he suddenly raised his brow and followed her gaze.
Since just now, she had been staring at Gun Gun and talking to him, which was a bit strange.
With a grin, he asked, “Is it alright for me to enter the Star Boundary alone?”
“Of course there’s no problem,” Yang Yan slowly withdrew her gaze and whispered, “Boy, restrain yourself. If Iron Blood really notices you, you’ll be finished.”
“I understand, I understand!” Yang Kai also whispered back, acting suspiciously.
“Good, then that’s it. I’ll go back first and help you create your own scroll. Otherwise, your reputation as the Star Field Master will be tarnished. Only with the Star Court’s acknowledgement will you be able to sit comfortably as the Star Field Master.” Yang Yan looked down at the arm he had been holding and sneered, “Little brat, you better get this straight. From now on, I’m your superior, don’t act so disrespectful.”
Yang Kai quickly let go of her hand and tidied up the creases on her arm, cupping his fists and saying, “Farewell, Sir!”
Yang Yan showed a proud look as if he was a child who could be taught a lesson, and with a flash of light, a sharp sword suddenly appeared in her hand. From the looks of it, it was the same sword as the feathered crown man.
The Star Slaying Sword was indeed a standard Star Envoy artifact. As the sword light flashed, Yang Yan and the sword merged into one, shattering space and disappearing from Yang Kai’s vision.
Yang Kai quickly called out, “That’s right, I established High Heaven Palace in the Northern Territory, come and play when you have time!”
The light disappeared and Yang Kai didn’t know if she had heard him or not. Looking in the direction she had left, Yang Kai’s face was filled with disappointment and frustration. After a while, he slapped his thigh and said, “I forgot to ask her where Star Court is.”
However, this was just a small matter. Just as she said, there was no need to worry about not being able to meet again in the future.
Thinking back to his life, he had started from the very beginning and was now the Star Field’s Master. He had also established a foundation in the Star Boundary, but he had only spent a mere hundred years. What kind of scene would it be in another hundred years?
But no matter what, he had to fight for the position of Great Emperor. If he really had to fight, he wouldn’t hesitate even if he had to break a stone in the bottle, but… who should he choose? Yang Kai suddenly fell into a deep dilemma.
This scene was like an ant plotting to kill an elephant. If Yang Yan saw this, she would probably laugh at him.
Rubbing his head, Yang Kai calmed his thoughts and began communicating with the Star Field’s Source, immersing his consciousness into it.
In the endless darkness, Yang Kai’s figure appeared and shouted towards the other side of the darkness, “Dog Wu Heng, I’ll spare your dog life today. If you dare encroach on my Heng Luo Star Field again, don’t blame this Young Master for being impolite!”
In the Star Field of the Great Desolate Star Field, Wu Heng’s face was ashen as he stared at the rolling darkness, his eyes filled with hatred and dread, his face alternating between red and blue as he suddenly spat out a mouthful of blood.
This time, he had really tried to steal a chicken only to end up losing the rice used to lure it. Originally, he had wanted to swallow Heng Luo Star Field to help him cultivate, but in the end, not only did he fail to gain an advantage, he had even lost several Cultivation Stars.
The Starry Sky had been swallowed and the Cultivation Star had disappeared for no reason, causing the Origin Energy of the Great Desolate Star Field to be damaged, as if it was punishing him. The Origin Energy he had refined a long time ago actually showed signs of escaping his control.
After being stimulated by Yang Kai again, how could he endure it?
Wu Heng couldn’t wait to rush to the opposite side and fight to the death with Yang Kai, but when he thought about the Star Envoy’s instructions before he left, he couldn’t help feeling somewhat dejected.
Even the Star Envoy couldn’t do anything to him, so what could he do? But if he didn’t take revenge, how could he swallow this anger?
He was now a 3rd order Emperor Realm master, and above him was a Great Emperor. He was also an ambitious person, so how could he be willing to sink into depravity?
However, it was never too late for a gentleman to take revenge, so this matter had to be settled slowly.
Facing Yang Kai’s clamor, he didn’t dare respond, nor could he respond. After a long time, the rolling darkness finally stabilized, as if it had become the boundary between two Star Fields, but also like a scar that remained in Wu Heng’s heart.
At this moment, Yang Kai was riding on Gun Gun’s back towards Shadowed Star.
The matter with the Star Field had almost been resolved, and it had taken him more than ten years. Before coming here, he had never thought he would have to spend so much effort, but everything was worth it. After the Star Field's matter was settled, not only did he become the Star Field’s Master, he even had Yang Yan as his superior. If anything happened, there would be someone to cover for him.
In the blink of an eye, they arrived on Shadowed Star. Yang Kai remained in the void, digesting his ‘accumulated food’ before returning to High Heaven Sect.
Inside High Heaven Sect, on the main peak, in a pavilion, Su Yan, Xia Ningchang, Shan Qingluo, and Xue Yue were gathered together, chatting happily.
Yang Kai appeared leisurely and coughed lightly before gently saying, “Ladies, I’ve returned. Sorry to keep you waiting.”
