Yu Rumeng didn’t stay long in the Hundred Spirit Continent. After confirming that Yang Kai’s life wasn’t in danger, she quickly left, as if she had something important to do.
Yang Kai couldn’t help thinking about the Bright Moon Great Emperor. If there was something that could cause a Demon Saint to worry, it was most likely related to Bright Moon Great Emperor. Yang Kai even felt that when she sent him to the Cloud Shadow Continent, firstly, it was because she wanted to use his strength to repair the World Gate, and secondly, she probably didn’t want him to be by her side. Although he had betrayed the Star Boundary in Yu Rumeng’s eyes, he was still born there, so she might be worried about him not being able to leave his homeland behind.
It wasn’t that Yang Kai hadn’t thought of sending this news back to the Star Boundary and asking the Great Emperors to find a way to rescue Bright Moon, but with the countless Demon Race guards guarding the Two World Passageway, it was impossible for him to quietly return to the Star Boundary.
Thinking about his one year agreement with Bright Moon Great Emperor, Yang Kai felt his heart sink. At that time, the only person who could help Bright Moon was himself, but whether or not he could bring him out of the Demon Territory under the watchful eyes of the twelve Demon Saints, Yang Kai wasn’t confident at all. In fact, Yang Kai wasn’t even sure if he could help him.
The level of the struggle between Great Emperors and Demon Saints was simply too high. With his current Second-Order Emperor Realm cultivation, he was unable to intervene.
On the second day after Yu Rumeng left, Chang Tian summoned Yang Kai and had a frank discussion with him.
True to Rumeng’s words, his initial plan was to use Yang Kai’s strength to seal all the World Gates of the Hundred Spirit Continent, creating the illusion that the entire continent had escaped from the Demon Territory. Of course, this kind of separation was different from the previous continents.
If the entire Demon Territory was a single entity, then the previous continents gave Yang Kai a feeling of necrosis. The disappearance of the World Gates caused the continents to gradually collapse and shatter into pieces, while Yang Kai used his Space Force to seal the World Gates to hide the Hundred Spirit Continent. The two were incomparable. After hiding, the Hundred Spirit Continent would not be in danger of collapsing, but the creatures here would no longer be affected by the other continents in the Demon Territory.
However, after discovering Yang Kai’s Dragon Bloodline, Chang Tian also changed his mind.
Previously, he had wanted to do so because he couldn’t see any hope. Although there were many Half-Saint cultivators on the Hundred Spirit Continent, it was difficult for any of them to be of any use. At the very least, it would be impossible for anyone to grow to the point where they could contend with a Demon Saint in two or three thousand years, and once the long day passed, no one would be able to shoulder the burden of the Hundred Spirit Continent.
But now, it was different. The light in the darkness allowed Chang Tian to see hope again. Even if Yang Kai and Yu Rumeng had a close relationship, he couldn’t care less. If he could entrust everything in the Hundred Spirit Continent to him, it would undoubtedly be what he wanted to see the most. It could even be said that it was because Yang Kai and Yu Rumeng were so close that he had more confidence in them.
At that time, even if Yang Kai’s strength was not satisfactory, as long as he had Yu Rumeng’s help, the other Demon Saints would not be able to resist.
Yang Kai’s words further strengthened Chang Tian’s resolve. The World Gate could be sealed, but it was impossible to guarantee that the Hundred Spirit Continent would completely disappear from view. This directly dispelled his initial plan.
Even so, the World Gate still needed to be sealed.
The Hundred Spirit Continent had a total of four World Gates, and Chang Tian needed Yang Kai to seal three of them, leaving only one.
As such, the Half-Saint guarding the World Gate only needed one person, unlike before, the Hundred Spirit Continent had to send out four Half-Saints to seal the World Gate at all times to prevent anyone from sneaking in.
Naturally, Yang Kai had no reason to refuse, instead he was quite expectant.
If it weren’t for Chang Tian’s reminder, Yang Kai really wouldn’t have thought of this. He was already familiar with repairing the World Gates, but he had never done anything like this before, mainly because his thoughts were a bit dark, and he didn’t dare act so rashly in the territory of the Demon Saints. If he really did this, he would definitely cause some trouble.
On the other hand, the Hundred Spirit Continent had such a need, perhaps it could provide him with some new insights into the Space Laws.
With this thought in mind, Yang Kai hurriedly left the dark and empty hall, and under the leadership of the Lian Sisters, he set off towards the nearest World Gate. Wind Chaser also came to find him and ran around randomly, causing Yang Kai to reprimand him fiercely before allowing him to stop.
The Lian Sisters watched from the side, trembling in fear. Although Wind Chaser had shown a friendly attitude towards Yang Kai and was even willing to let him ride on his back, everyone in Hundred Spirit Continent knew that Wind Chaser's arrogance was no less than that of any Half-Saint. After the Hundred Spirit Continent was unified, a newly promoted Half-Saint became arrogant and provoked Wind Chaser. In the end, this fellow had chased after him for three whole years, causing his cultivation to fall from the Half-Saint realm to this day.
What happened back then was just a trivial matter, so trivial that the Lian Sisters had forgotten what it was all about, but this small matter had caused the downfall of a Half-Saint. Now, someone actually dared to reprimand Wind Chaser and even touch him!
However, Wind Chaser did not react much…
It was truly a bit inconceivable that someone with a similar bloodline to Sir could receive such treatment.
Without the interference of Wind Chaser, Yang Kai was finally able to focus on his research.
Although he had felt that sealing the World Gate wasn’t difficult before, it was completely different from maintaining and repairing it. It wasn’t something that could be done simply by reverse-engineering it. There were many things he hadn’t expected.
Sealing World Gates had indeed given him many new insights into the use of Space Laws.
After nearly a month, Yang Kai finally had a clue.
One day, the Space Laws suddenly began to fluctuate. The Lian Sisters who had been cultivating on a nearby mountain suddenly opened their eyes and stared towards the sky. In the next instant, the two sisters revealed looks of amazement.
In the void, in front of the World Gate, Yang Kai stretched out his hand and spread out his five fingers, covering the huge World Gate. From his palm, an invisible Law Energy spread out, like a stone falling into a calm lake. Layers of visible ripples spread out, gradually enveloping the entire World Gate.
Wherever the ripples passed, the World Gate suddenly became somewhat ethereal, as if it was covered in a thin veil, making it difficult to see clearly.
Even though the Lian Sisters were not proficient in the Space Laws, seeing this scene, they knew that Yang Kai had broken through to Sealing World Gate. Perhaps they could witness this magical moment with their own eyes.
Sure enough, as the ripples continued to spread, the World Gate became more blurry, as if the painting on the paper had become blurred.
Three days later, the void where the World Gate had once existed was now completely empty. Whether it was using one’s naked eyes or using one’s Divine Sense to perceive it, there was no trace of it.
Yang Kai still maintained this posture, his Space Laws constantly fluctuating.
Although the Lian Sisters couldn’t see any traces, it didn’t mean he couldn’t. The state of this World Gate in front of him could be said to be hidden. Without his guidance, no one would be able to pass through this World Gate, but if they were to use an extremely powerful force to attack it, it was possible for it to reappear.
Since he had done so, he naturally had to do his best.
After another half a day, Yang Kai suddenly let out a long sigh and slowly lowered his hand. The Space Laws that had been constantly fluctuating suddenly disappeared.
Wiping the sweat from his forehead, Yang Kai flew down and found a place to sit down cross-legged. Throwing a few Spirit Pills into his mouth, he began meditating.
Using the Space Laws continuously for a few days was quite a burden for him, so he could use this time to consolidate his gains.
Seeing this, the Lian Sisters quickly flew over and stood guard to the left and right. Although it wasn’t likely that some blind fool would come looking for trouble, they still had to be on guard.
Four hours later, Yang Kai slowly opened his eyes, the thoughtful look in his eyes gradually fading as he nodded towards the Lian Sisters.
Hei Lian asked, “Is this considered a success?”
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “You can try.”
Hei Lian glanced at him, and as expected, she went to try it, but the result was quite pleasant. Just from its appearance, there was no trace of the World Gate that had existed before. After shuttling back and forth, it proved that the World Gate had been sealed.
If this news were to be sent back, it would definitely make Sir happy.
Bai Lian asked, “Did you completely destroy this World Gate, or did you have a chance to restore it?”
Yang Kai looked at her with some surprise. He didn’t expect this woman to be so sharp, even though she looked so annoying. At the very least, her sister Hei Lian didn’t have such thoughts.
“Since it’s a seal, in theory it should be possible to restore it, but whether it succeeds or not, I’ll have to try.”
In fact, even if she didn’t ask, Yang Kai was prepared to restore the World Gate, not to show off, but to confirm his hypothesis. If he couldn’t restore it, he would have to ask Chang Tian if he wanted to seal the other World Gates. If he lost the World Gate and couldn’t find it, it wouldn’t be good if he made Chang Tian unhappy. After all, this World Gate was different from other World Gates that had disappeared, and he had taken the initiative to destroy it.
Without any hesitation, Yang Kai flew back to his previous position and stretched out his hand again, covering the void with his Space Laws. Just like before, the ripples spread out again.
The outline of the World Gate gradually appeared…
In less than a quarter of an hour, the World Gate once again appeared in front of the three of them. Wind Chaser's eyes widened in surprise as he flew around the World Gate from time to time, as if he was trying to see a flower.
The first time he sealed a World Gate, it took him several days to restore it, but it only took him a quarter of an hour to do so. It wasn’t because he was familiar with it, but because it was much easier to restore it than to seal it, even easier than repairing the World Gates that had disappeared.
“I’ll report this to Sir,” Bai Lian said before turning into a streak of light and flying towards the castle.
