After fiercely reprimanding Bo Ya and forcing her back, Yang Kai turned his head to look at Li Shiqing, only to see her sitting in the innermost corner of the bed, her body curled up, her hands wrapped around her knees, her face pale and filled with fear.
Yang Kai’s face was filled with helplessness as his expression softened slightly, “In the future, don’t associate with that Demoness, she’s nothing good!”
Li Shiqing shrank back even further and nodded imperceptibly.
Seeing her like this, Yang Kai knew she didn’t take it to heart. In her eyes, he was the biggest villain in the world, and he is nothing good for speaking bad behind others, so he could only stop.
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai took out a Space Spirit Bead and said, “If you encounter any danger, activate the law in this bead and it will protect you.”
It was impossible for him to keep an eye on Li Shiqing all the time, especially since there were still many things he needed to take care of. He had finally managed to rescue her from the Blood Fighting Pit, so he couldn’t let anything happen to her.
A single Space Spirit Bead was enough to ensure her safety. As long as her reaction wasn’t too slow and she encountered an irresistible danger, she could use this bead to teleport to Yang Kai’s side. Of course, this was on the premise that she was on the same continent as Yang Kai.
However, Yang Kai estimated that her chances of using this bead weren’t very high. Now that the Cloud Shadow Continent was under his control, no one dared to disobey his orders.
After giving her instructions, she ignored Li Shiqing’s reaction and strode out.
Behind him, Li Shiqing looked up at Yang Kai with a complicated expression, hesitating for a long time before putting away the bead.
At this moment, Yang Kai and He Yin were riding the Tiger Head Chariot towards a certain direction of the Cloud Shadow Continent.
Half a day later, high up in the wilderness, the Tiger Head Chariot stopped. Yang Kai and He Yin got off the chariot and looked around, “Are you sure it’s here?”
He Yin also turned her head and looked around for a while, seemingly trying to determine her position. After a while, she came to a spot in the void and said, “It’s here.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly, the Space Laws around him fluctuating wildly as he closed his eyes to sense something.
He Yin stared at him curiously, her bright eyes flashing with a strange light, but she didn’t dare disturb him and simply waited.
After an hour, Yang Kai opened his eyes and slowly shook his head. Looking at the voice, he asked, “When did this World Gate disappear and where did it connect?”
Previously, he had looked up information about the World Gates of the Cloud Shadow Continent and confirmed that what Bai Zhuo had said was correct. The Cloud Shadow Continent originally had five World Gates that connected to five different continents, but in the past thousand years, four World Gates had disappeared one after another, leaving only one that connected to the Blue Plains Continent, nearly isolating the Cloud Shadow Continent.
If he wanted to do a good job, he had to sharpen his tools first. If he wanted to protect the last of the World Gates, he had to first take a look at the four World Gates that had disappeared. At the very least, he had to have some confidence. It would be best if he could figure out the reason for their disappearance. Even if he couldn’t figure it out, he had to at least find some clues.
However, although he had used his full strength just now, he had still failed to obtain anything. There was nothing unusual about this place, and if it wasn’t for his confirmation and the fact that all the information he had previously gathered indicated that there was indeed a World Gate here, Yang Kai would have suspected that something was wrong.
He Yin voice continued, “The World Gate here first disappeared about a thousand years ago, and the signs before it disappeared are similar to the last World Gate now, both showing signs of instability. Originally, it could lead to the Blood Flame Continent.”
Pausing for a moment, she asked, “Did Great King discover anything?” Although she knew from Yang Kai’s performance just now that there was little hope, she couldn’t help asking.
But to her disappointment, Yang Kai shook his head, “I didn’t find anything, let’s go to the next place.”
Raising his hand to summon the Tiger Head Chariot, He Yin naturally had no objections and boarded it with Yang Kai to guide them.
Half a day later, the two of them arrived above a sea region. Below them, the waves rose and fell, rolling up and down as far as the eye could see.
Just like before, Yang Kai closed his eyes and focused his senses while quietly waiting.
After a short while, Yang Kai’s brow rose and a look of surprise appeared on his face. The Space Law fluctuations around him became more violent and He Yin became more focused on Yang Kai. Seeing this, her expression couldn’t help trembling as she realized that Yang Kai must have discovered something.
In the next moment, she saw Yang Kai suddenly open his eyes and look towards the void in front of him with a solemn expression. The Space Force around his body began to disperse as he suddenly stretched out his hands.
The speed at which the two hands pushed forward was extremely slow, as if there was a great resistance in the void. What was even more surprising was that after pushing forward half a foot, Yang Kai’s hands suddenly disappeared, as if they had merged into the void.
He Yin's expression couldn’t help becoming serious. The power of space force was actually so profound!
Immediately after, she heard Yang Kai shout, “Open!”
Accompanied by this shout, Yang Kai pushed his hands to the side and in the next moment, the void seemed to be torn apart and a crack appeared in front of his eyes. The crack was filled with a chaotic void that not only swallowed his vision but also his Divine Sense.
However, He Yin voice was filled with excitement as she called out, “Great King!”
Yang Kai turned a deaf ear to this and exerted more force, causing his clothes to flutter and the crack in front of him to widen.
When it was enough for the two of them to pass through, Yang Kai suddenly stretched out his hand, grabbed He Yin’s arm, and brought her towards the crack. In an instant, the two of them disappeared.
He Yin felt as if the world was spinning and her vision was being disrupted. By the time she came back to her senses, she had already arrived in a different world. Calming herself down, she stared down at the familiar scenery before calling out excitedly, “Thunder Heaven Continent!”
The World Gate that had disappeared just now was originally connected to Thunder Heaven Continent. He Yin had lived on Cloud Shadow Continent for thousands of years, and when the World Gates had not disappeared, she had often come to Thunder Heaven Continent to do business. Naturally, she was familiar with the scenery of this exit, but ever since the World Gate had disappeared, she had never come here again.
Unexpectedly, she would one day see this scenery again.
For a time, she was filled with confidence in Yang Kai and felt that it was not unreasonable for the Saint Venerable to send him to the Cloud Shadow Continent to protect the World Gate. With such a method, it meant that he would be able to open the World Gate which had already disappeared, allowing the Cloud Shadow Continent to no longer be isolated.
“Don’t celebrate too early,” Yang Kai’s expression was indifferent as he poured cold water on his excited voice, “Look behind you.”
He Yin was stunned for a moment before quickly turning her head to look behind her, only to find that the Void Crack they had just passed through was closing at a speed visible to the naked eye. It would likely disappear in less than ten breaths.
The excitement and anticipation in her heart suddenly disappeared as she asked in a daze, “How could this be?”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “This King simply followed the traces left behind by the World Gate and forcefully broke through the void to arrive here. These two continents have their own World Laws, so naturally, they can repair external disturbances and stabilize their roots.”
“That World Gate…”
Yang Kai said, “It’s still too early to say these things, but it’s not completely hopeless. Since there are still traces of the connection between the two continents, there’s a way, let's go back first.” Saying so, he turned around and tore open the crack that was about to close again, returning with He Yin.
A moment later, the two returned to the cloud shadow continent.
Looking at the rapidly closing crack, He Yin sighed in her heart, but after this experience, she saw some hope.
Afterwards, the two of them walked towards the other two World Gates and carefully examined them.
After spending two days investigating these two places, Yang Kai’s mood became a bit better, because these two places were similar to the World Gates that led to the Thunder Heaven Continent. There were still some traces left behind, enough for Yang Kai to tear open space and go directly.
Only the first World Gate that led to the Blood Flame Continent left Yang Kai somewhat helpless. In other words, three of the four World Gates that had disappeared still had hope of reappearing, but the first one had no hope at all.
This made Yang Kai somewhat puzzled. Logically speaking, there shouldn’t have been any big difference between the four World Gates that had disappeared, so it should have been the same situation, but the place he had first investigated was different.
“He Yin, think about it carefully, how are these four World Gates different? Especially the World Gates that connect to the Blood Flame Continent, how is it different from the other three.” Yang Kai couldn’t understand. After all, he had only been here for a short time, so he could only ask He Yin, which was why he had come out with He Yin.
“Time?” He Yin hesitated for a moment before suggesting a possible guess, “The first World Gate disappeared the longest, could it be because of this?”
“It’s only a thousand years, but it’s not impossible. What else?” Yang Kai frowned.
He Yin continued to ponder for a while before looking up at Yang Kai and saying, “Right, the Blood Flame Continent has disappeared. The World Gate connected to the Cloud Shadow Continent is the last World Gate it has.”
Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, “Why didn’t you say something so important earlier?”
If he was not mistaken, this was the reason why the World Gate’s traces had completely disappeared. Even the Blood Flame Continent had disappeared, so how could the World Gate’s traces remain?
Her voice sounded a little awkward, “I forgot…”
Yang Kai shook his head speechlessly, but he didn’t blame her. Since he had figured out the reason behind this, the rest of the matter was easy to handle. In order to maintain the World Gate, Yang Kai had to at least figure out how it could continue to exist. Logically speaking, this kind of thing should have been smoothed out by the World Laws long ago, but in fact, on the Demon Territory’s many continents, each continent had more or less a World Gate, at least two or three, at most a dozen. It was extremely strange.
Therefore, no matter what, he had to make a trip to the only surviving World Gate. Firstly, he had to investigate it thoroughly, and secondly, he could use the unstable World Gate to comprehend the power of space. If he could improve his Space Law further, that would naturally be for the best.
