Being exposed by Yang Kai, Bo Ya could only reluctantly walk over and squeeze out a smile, “What a coincidence, you’re also here.”
Yang Kai stared at her and pointed at Li Shiqing, “From now on, you’d better stay away from her. If you dare disturb her again, I’ll break your legs!”
Hearing this, Bo Ya’s face paled and she angrily said, “Don’t go too far, this is my freedom, what right do you have to control me?”
Yang Kai sneered and didn’t say anything, only slowly taking out his Soul Puppet and pointing it towards the Soul Puppet’s forehead…
Bo Ya immediately covered her forehead with her hand and took a few steps back, her eyes filled with panic as she said, “Don’t be rash, we can talk things out.”
“Do you remember what I said?” Yang Kai asked solemnly.
Bo Ya’s face was filled with unwillingness, but she could only nod.
Yang Kai turned to Li Shiqing and said, “If you need anything in the future, come find me.”
Li Shiqing nodded gratefully.
Yang Kai waved his hand and left, leaving behind Bo Ya who stared at Li Shiqing with a bitter look, her eyes filled with despair and tears, but she could only smile apologetically.
Returning to his room, Yang Kai studied the map of the Demon Territory and focused on the connection between the World Gates of the Eternal Heaven Continent and summoned Lao Ke to ask him some questions.
The next day, he set out alone.
Since he had already promised Yu Rumeng to deal with the World Gate in her territory, Yang Kai naturally didn’t want to delay any further. The Two World Battlefield had already escalated, and the decisive battle between the Human and Demon Race could arrive at any moment. There wasn’t much time left for him and the Bright Moon Great Emperor.
Yu Rumeng controlled fifty or sixty continents, and nearly half of them had Half-Saints. In other words, just the number of Half-Saints under Yu Rumeng numbered twenty or thirty, while Bai Zhuo and Yue Sang were only two of them. Yu Rumeng alone was like this, while the other eleven Demon Saints were similar. In the entire Demon Realm, there were nearly three hundred Half-Saint masters, a terrifying number.
Yang Kai didn’t know how many Pseudo Emperors there were in the Star Boundary, but he knew that it was impossible for there to be so many of them. It was already a blessing to have half of them here.
Every Half-Saint was the master of a continent. Of course, among the many continents, there were also uninhabited places like Cloud Shadow which occupied almost half of them.
However, these uninhabited continents always had a chance to produce a new Half-Saint, Bai Zhuo had said that the number of territories they had was directly related to the strength of a Demon Saint. This wasn’t just because there were more Myriad Demon Pills in their territory, but also because of the number of Half-Saint subordinates they had.
Yang Kai finally understood why Bai Zhuo had treated him so kindly, even going so far as to fall out with Yue Sang to protect him.
Of course, this had to do with Yu Rumeng and his disagreement with Yue Sang, but more importantly, he needed to use Yang Kai’s Space Laws. As a Half-Saint, Bai Zhuo also had his own continent, which was similar to Cloud Shadow. Most of the World Gates had disappeared and only the last two remained, one of which was extremely unstable. For the past hundred years, no one had dared to enter or exit through that World Gate.
Since he needed Yang Kai’s help, he naturally couldn’t not see him in a different light.
The Cloud Shadow was an ownerless place, which was why Yu Rumeng had asked him to come here for the first time. She must have used the Cloud Shadow to let Yang Kai test it out. If Yang Kai could really repair the World Gate, it would be good, but if he couldn’t, even if he destroyed the last World Gate, it wouldn’t be a big loss. In any case, the last World Gate would disappear within a hundred years, so it wouldn’t make a difference if he did it sooner or later.
Now, Yang Kai’s performance on Cloud Shadow's side could be said to be amazing. Not only did he manage to maintain the stability of the last World Gate, but he even managed to repair two of the World Gates that had disappeared. Only then did Yu Rumeng feel relieved and let him do his best.
Of the dozens of continents under her command, nearly one-fifth of them had more or less encountered some kind of problem. In the worst case scenario, the World Gates would disappear, while in the least worst case, the World Gates would become unstable and would require Yang Kai’s help.
Yu Rumeng had told him the locations and names of these continents before she left, and she also said that she would have the various continents cooperate with him to fulfill any request.
As a result, Yang Kai’s trip could be said to have been extremely smooth. Every time he arrived on a continent, he would receive a warm welcome, and because of this, he even got to know several Half-Saints who were stationed on his own continent.
Since they needed Yang Kai’s help, these Half-Saints naturally wouldn’t act as arrogantly as Yue Sang did, not to mention that Yu Rumeng seemed to hold Yang Kai in high regard. Yue Sang had only had a small conflict with Yang Kai before being sent to the Two World Battlefield by Yu Rumeng, not allowing him to return. With Yue Sang’s example, how could they dare be careless?
They were even speculating whether this Human who was proficient in Space Laws was actually the first to be 'supported' by the Saint Venerable!
Although the Saint Venerable was a Succubus, she had a good reputation over the years and had never had any rumors about her relationship with the opposite sex. For her to suddenly favor a human so much, it was hard to say if others wouldn’t think about it.
However, this way, it would be easier for Yang Kai to act.
Every time he came to a place, they would agree to any request he made. Most of the Half-Saints called him brother, so how could the Demon Kings of the Continent who didn’t have a Half-Saint overseeing them dare to neglect him? They practically treated him like a grandfather.
The name of the Great King Yang Kai also spread far and wide in Yu Rumeng’s territory, causing all the Demon Race at the bottom to hear about it.
It took Yang Kai a full month to finish dealing with the World Gates of more than a dozen continents. During this time, he even secretly found the other two missing continents. In addition to the Blood Flame Continent, three of these continents had already been swallowed by the Mysterious Boundary Bead.
There were more than three continents that had disappeared from Yu Rumeng’s territory. According to the information Yang Kai had obtained, there were six continents, but the other three had to be entered through different continents, and the World Gates of these three continents were not a problem, so Yang Kai couldn’t just casually enter them to avoid arousing suspicion.
After the Mysterious Boundary Bead swallowed two more continents, its surface area expanded again, and the World Laws of the Demon Territory inside it became much denser and more condensed. This made Yang Kai wonder if the Mysterious Boundary Bead would become a different Demon Territory if it swallowed more fragments of the continent.
The only thing Yang Kai felt regretful about was that he hadn’t obtained any Myriad Demon Pills from these two continents. Because these two continents had disappeared for too long, even the Myriad Demon Cave had collapsed, so naturally he couldn’t obtain any Myriad Demon Pills. This made Yang Kai, who had thought he would be able to obtain enough Myriad Demon Pills to allow his Embodiment to advance to the Half-Saint Realm, somewhat disappointed.
As soon as he returned from the continent he had just disappeared from, Yang Kai took a moment to determine his direction, but before he could move, he saw a streak of light rapidly approaching.
The streak of light was like a bolt of lightning, its speed ridiculously fast, and before it could even get close, a terrifying pressure swept over it.
Yang Kai’s expression changed as he turned his head to look at the gap that had been torn open by the Ruins of End.
Because he wanted to search for the missing continent, Yang Kai had the Demon Kings of this continent spread out a kilometers away, not allowing them to approach, only telling them he is trying to repair the World Gate.
In any case, they didn’t know what he had done here after the incident. In just a few days, the gap created by the bite of the Ruins of End would automatically recover, and by then, there would be no trace of them.
Who would have thought that someone would come at this time, and judging from his aura, it was a Half-Saint!
Didn’t this continent’s Half-Saint already go to the Two World Battlefield? Could it be that he had coincidentally returned at this time? It was too late to cover up his tracks now, the other party had probably already discovered the situation here.
As his thoughts raced, Yang Kai made up his mind. With his Space Laws fluctuating wildly, he stretched out his hand and punched towards the gap in the void, causing the void to become even more chaotic and invisible. Although he couldn’t completely hide it traces, he could still make it impossible for others to find it.
With a whoosh, the stream of light stopped a hundred feet in front of Yang Kai, revealing a tall figure. Looking curiously at the gap in the void, the figure sized up Yang Kai before cupping his hands and asking, “Are you Brother Yang Kai?”
During this period of time, Yang Kai had become accustomed to the Half-Saints addressing each other as brothers, so he didn’t have much of a reaction to his polite greeting. Nodding proudly, he asked, “It’s me, may I ask who Sir is?”
As soon as the other party appeared, Yang Kai knew that this Half-Saint was not the master of this continent.
According to his understanding, the master of this continent was a female Half-Saint, and the one who came was a man.
Who was this guy? Why was he here? Yang Kai’s heart was filled with doubts.
The Demon Race cultivator smiled slightly and said, “It really is Brother Yang, it seems we’ve found the right person. I am Bei Limo Saint Venerable's Half-Saint, Bai Ya. Under the orders of the Saint Venerable, I have come to escort Brother Yang to Proud Snow Continent.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s face twitched. So this man was Bei Limo’s subordinate, he didn’t have a good impression of her. Although that woman was a Demon Saint, her actions were a bit absurd. If it weren’t for Yu Rumeng’s Soul Descent, he might have suffered greatly under her hands.
However, since the other party was so polite, Yang Kai couldn’t put on a sour face and simply cupped his fists, “So it’s Brother Bai Ya.” Pausing for a moment, Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “It seems that Saint Venerable Bei Limo’s temperament is quite impatient.”
Yu Rumeng had clearly discussed with Yang Kai that after he finished dealing with this matter, he would go to her territory, but she still sent a Half-Saint over. To put it nicely, it was to welcome him, but in reality, it was to escort him, causing Yang Kai to feel quite annoyed.
How could Bai Ya not understand the meaning behind Yang Kai’s words? Smiling slightly, he said, “Brother Yang has the ability to repair World Gates, so he is highly valued by the Saint. I hope Brother Yang can forgive her.” Pausing for a moment, he continued, “It’s not just the Saint, all of us brothers are also looking forward to Brother Yang’s arrival.” The brother he was referring to was naturally the Half-Saint like him.
Since even a Half-Saint was so polite, what else could Yang Kai say? He could only smile and say, “Brother Bai Ya is too serious. Since the two Saint Venerable have reached an agreement, this King will naturally do his best.”
Bai Ya glanced at the gap in the void and frowned, “Has Brother Yang’s matter been settled?”
“It’s about time, I’ll need a few more days.” He had to wait until the gap here was completely closed before he could leave, otherwise it would be difficult to guarantee that nothing would go wrong.
