“This is…” Xiao Yuyang looked suspiciously at the transmission token in his hand.
Yang Kai explained the uses of this thing to Xiao Yuyang, who immediately put it away as if it was a precious treasure. With this thing, it would be much more convenient for him to travel around in the future. As long as it was a Space Array set up by Yang Kai, he would be able to travel freely.
“When you have time, go to my Star Soul Palace and arrange a Space Array,” Xiao Yuyang smiled at him.
Yang Kai nodded, “No problem.”
Originally, he had planned to use the Space Array to connect the various parts of the Star Boundary, so setting up one in Star Soul Palace was a piece of cake for him. With this matter settled, the two of them set off again.
Three days later, they finally arrived at their destination.
As Xiao Yuyang landed on a desert, Yang Kai’s eyes stared towards a certain place in front of him.
A thousand meters in front of him, a massive crater had appeared in the endless sand sea. This crater was at least a dozen acres in size and was several hundred meters deep. If one were to look down from a high altitude, this crater was like a giant funnel embedded in this sand sea. As the funnel spun, a large amount of sand fell to the bottom and disappeared.
Seeing this, Yang Kai couldn’t help clicking his tongue in amazement. If he hadn’t seen it with his own eyes, he wouldn’t have believed that there was such a strange scenery in this world.
Yang Kai didn’t know how this funnel was formed, nor how long it had lasted, but he could feel the fluctuations of spatial energy from the bottom of the funnel. Using his eyesight, he discovered that the bottom of the funnel seemed to be connected to an unknown location.
Was this the independent World Entrance that Xiao Yuyang had mentioned?
Yang Kai carefully looked around and found that this was indeed the case. There should be a Void Corridor at the bottom of the funnel, but he didn’t know where it connected to, but it was in a sealed state. If he couldn’t find a way to open it, it would be impossible to enter.
If he were to rashly use brute force, it was extremely likely that he would be able to destroy this tunnel, making it difficult for him to enter.
No wonder Xiao Yuyang didn’t hesitate to run back to the Southern Domain from the Western Domain and then let Gao Xueting bring him to High Heaven Palace to find him. With the current situation, it was indeed more appropriate for him to settle it himself.
Sensing Yang Kai and Xiao Yuyang’s arrival, the hidden figures around them gradually appeared and gathered around.
Yang Kai looked around and found many familiar faces.
Xue Zhengmao and Lei Hong, these two Third-Order Emperor Realm masters, along with Xiao Yuyang, had all been mobilized. The Star Soul Palace’s three Third-Order Emperor Realm masters, as well as a dozen or so other Emperor Realm masters, were obviously the higher-ups of Star Soul Palace.
Xiao Yuyang went up to greet them and asked a few simple questions. After confirming that there had been no abnormalities while he was gone, he relaxed and Yang Kai walked over to greet everyone.
Xue Zhengmao looked at him solemnly, “Yang Kai, we can only rely on you for this matter. Although we can’t be certain, the information sent by the Great Emperor leads us here. We suspect that Princess Lan Xun is inside, so please help us.”
Yang Kai said seriously, “Great Elder is being too serious. I am also a cultivator from the Southern Domain and have a good relationship with Her Highness the Princess. Since Her Highness is in trouble, I naturally cannot refuse.”
Hearing this, Xue Zhengmao felt greatly comforted and nodded repeatedly, “Good, good, good. If we really can save Her Highness, this old master and the others will be eternally grateful. If you have any requests in the future, my Star Soul Palace will not refuse.”
This was a promise of great weight, it was obvious that Xue Zhengmao and the others were also at a loss as to what to do, otherwise they wouldn’t have said such words so easily.
“Great Elder, please calm down, I’ll take a look,” Yang Kai said before flying towards the bottom of the funnel.
Lei Hong shouted, “Be careful, there seems to be something strange down there.”
Yang Kai nodded and quickly approached the bottommost part of the funnel. Standing here and observing it was even more shocking than looking from above. The surrounding sand and swirling funnel gave Yang Kai the illusion that the world was about to be swallowed.
Carefully releasing his Divine Sense and simultaneously activating his Space Laws, he silently sensed for a long time before making up his mind and flying up.
“How is it?” Xue Zhengmao asked anxiously.
Yang Kai frowned and said, “The entrance has been sealed. After waiting here for so long, have you not found any trace of anyone?”
Xue Zhengmao shook his head, “I didn’t find anything. No one has passed through this place for so long.”
Yang Kai said, “These traces of human activity indicate that everything was planned. Perhaps it was some kind of conspiracy. If we really want to open the entrance, who knows what will happen?”
“What will happen?” Xue Zhengmao’s expression became serious.
Yang Kai shrugged, “I don’t know. Perhaps it will alarm someone, or perhaps it will make the situation of the Princess even more difficult. If that’s the case, are you sure you want to open this entrance?”
Everyone looked at each other in silence for a long time before Xue Zhengmao finally said, “There has been no news of the Great Emperor, and we don’t know if Her Highness is still alive or not. Since this is the only clue we have, we can only open it. We must see her alive or dead.”
The others all nodded slightly, indicating that the Great Elder was right. Since they had a clue, they should investigate it. If they just let it go like this, no one would be willing to give up. What’s more, what Yang Kai said was just a relatively the bad situation, what if it wasn’t so bad?
Perhaps if he opened the entrance, he would be able to find the Great Emperor and Lan Xun.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “Since everyone has made a decision, let’s open it. However, this entrance seems to be a bit unstable, so if you want to enter, you must hurry. Also, the first thing you need to do is protect yourself, lest others take advantage of you.”
Xue Zhengmao smiled slightly, “We’ve lived for so long and are all afraid of death, so we naturally won’t act carelessly.”
Yang Kai nodded, “In that case, please follow me.”
As he spoke, he turned around and flew down again. The group of people quickly followed him and scattered around Yang Kai, their expressions tense as they waited for him to open the entrance.
Under the turbulence of the Space Laws, Yang Kai carefully unlocked the seal on the entrance and opened it.
Ripples appeared in the air as if a stone had been thrown into a calm lake, causing ripples to spread out.
Not long after, a dark tunnel appeared at the bottom of the funnel.
When everyone saw this, all of their expressions changed, especially Xiao Yuyang, who felt that he had not wasted his time inviting Yang Kai over. They had tried before, but they had been unable to open the entrance. If they had used brute force, they might have been able to destroy this place, but in front of Yang Kai, this difficult problem had been solved in the blink of an eye.
Pairs of eyes constantly shifted between Yang Kai and the Void Corridor, waiting for his command to enter.
However, the Void Corridor had just taken shape and was clearly unstable, constantly distorting and changing. Yang Kai could only use his Space Laws to reinforce it so that it would be easier for everyone to travel together.
After the time it took for an incense stick to burn, the distorted Void Corridor gradually stabilized.
Yang Kai shouted, “You may enter now, everyone be careful!”
Xue Zhengmao, who had been waiting for him to say this, immediately rushed forward and disappeared into the Void Corridor, followed by Xiao Yuyang.
After Xiao Yuyang also entered the Void Corridor, Yang Kai set out to follow.
But at this moment, his expression suddenly changed as he looked up.
Up in the sky, a stream of light shot down towards the Void Corridor, and within this stream of light, a blurry figure could be seen. Even someone as strong as Yang Kai couldn’t see its true appearance.
“Who is it!?” Yang Kai shouted as he raised his palm and struck upwards. Although this palm strike had been released in a hurry, he had been comprehending the Secret Art of the Dragon Race recently, so he had unconsciously used it.
Brilliant dragon might filled the air, and when he stretched out his palm, it seemed to transform into a dragon claw that would even punch a hole in the sky!
The newcomer didn’t try to dodge, instead continuing to charge straight towards him.
With a loud bang, Yang Kai’s entire body shook and he fell straight down into the sand pit, but under the rebound of his own strength, he couldn’t help feeling extremely miserable.
By the time he flew out of the sand pit again, there was no one in front of him. Turning his head to look at the Void Corridor that was about to disappear because he had lost his ability to maintain it, Yang Kai’s expression became somewhat uncertain.
In that instant of contact, he was actually unable to perceive the depths of the other party’s strength, not even being able to clearly see who it was.
Even a Third-Order Emperor Realm master would not be able to withstand this palm strike, but this person was actually able to withstand it and remain indifferent. In other words, this person’s cultivation was definitely not only at the Third-Order Emperor Realm.
Pseudo Emperor? Or Great Emperor?
Only an existence with such a cultivation could withstand a single blow from Yang Kai and remain indifferent.
However, there was one thing Yang Kai was certain of, that person didn’t have any malicious intent towards him, otherwise, they wouldn’t have just endured and not counterattacked. With the other party’s cultivation, if they really did counterattack, Yang Kai would definitely suffer greatly.
If it was a Pseudo Emperor, who was it? If it was a Great Emperor, who was it?
Yang Kai’s mind was in a state of confusion, but that person had coincidentally rushed into the Void Corridor at this time, obviously monitoring this place, but Xue Zhengmao and the others had not been able to find them.
Could it be the Bright Moon Emperor? But if it really was the Bright Moon Emperor, why hadn’t he appeared before?
Just who was it?! Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling depressed.
Seeing that the Void Corridor was about to close again, Yang Kai didn’t have the time to think about it and rushed into it.
His vision blurred as he appeared in another world.
Yang Kai circulated his Emperor Qi to protect himself, ready to defend himself at any moment, but there is no sneak attacks happening. Turning his head to look around, Yang Kai couldn’t help frowning.
Because as far as he could see, there was not a single person in sight. Xue Zhengmao and the Emperor Realm masters of Star Soul Palace, who had entered before him, were nowhere to be seen. Even when he released his Divine Sense, he did not notice them.
Where are the others? Yang Kai was confused.
