But thinking about it, it wasn’t strange. After all, this was a battle between Great Emperor and Demon Saints, and it was highly likely that it would change the future direction of the two worlds, so it was reasonable for them to pay attention to it.
“That’s easy to explain,” Yang Kai nodded lightly, “Senior must have seen what happened to the Eternal Heaven Continent after that great battle.”
“The world shattered, the world is falling apart, the World was destroyed, and the Laws collapsed. The full power of a Demon Saint and a Great Emperor is not something a small continent can withstand,” Chang Tian said solemnly.
“If I were to tell Senior that this world was worse than the shattered Eternal Heaven Continent in the beginning, I wonder if Senior would believe me.”
Chang Tian turned his head and his pupils shrank.
Yang Kai met his gaze, his expression calm and his eyes pure.
After a long time, Chang Tian slowly shook his head, “It’s not that this King doesn’t want to believe you, it’s just that this matter is too outrageous.”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Senior should know that for thousands of years, there have been many missing continents in the Demon Territory. Because of the World Gates, these missing continents have been separated from the Demon Territory and no one has been able to enter them. For so many years, no one knows what is happening inside these missing continents.”
Chang Tian frowned and asked, “You know?”
Yang Kai nodded, “I can enter those missing continents, but these continents are different from what most people think. They aren’t completely intact, but have long since fallen apart, even worse than the Eternal Heaven Continent after the great batle. The world Senior is currently seeing is the result of the fusion between those missing continents and the Eternal Heaven Continent. Senior, don’t you feel that the World Laws and World Energy here are somewhat similar to the Demon Territory?”
How could Chang Tian not feel it? The moment he entered, he felt that this world was like a weakened Demon Territory. Before, he didn’t know why, but after hearing Yang Kai’s explanation, he suddenly understood.
Although the Great Worlds’s World Laws were similar, it was impossible for them to be the same. For example, Star Boundary and Demon Territories had different Laws and the strength system they produced was also different, but this place called Mysterious Small World had many similarities with Demon Territory.
Although Yang Kai’s explanation was reasonable, Chang Tian still couldn’t help asking in disbelief, “How did you manage to fuse those missing continents back together?” In comparison, Yang Kai being able to enter those long-lost continents was far less shocking. Since he was proficient in the Space Laws and was able to repair and even seal the World Gates, reopening those World Gates would naturally not be a problem.
“Senior, have you heard of the Heaven Devourer Battle Law?” Yang Kai asked with a smile.
Chang Tian shook his head and replied, “I’ve never heard of it.” Unlike the many Demon Saints, Chang Tian knew nothing about the Star Boundary. If it were any other Demon Saint here, they might not be unfamiliar with the Heaven Devourer Battle Law. Since they dared to invade the Star Boundary, they must have put in a lot of effort to obtain information about it.
“The Heaven Devourer Battle Law is an unparalleled technique, created by a Senior from my Star Boundary who possesses the ability to swallow the worlds. This Senior’s name is Wu Kuang, and he became a Great Emperor tens of thousands of years ago. It can even be said that he is the strongest among all the Great Emperors. The greatest characteristic of the Heaven Devourer Battle Law is that it can swallow all things in the world and use them for its own use. However, this Senior used to think that he was powerful and invincible, so he did many things that incurred the wrath of Heaven and Man. As the saying goes, if the Heavenly Dao is unhappy, karma follows. In the end, this Senior incurred the wrath of the masses, and the other Great Emperors joined forces to kill him. In that battle, he single-handedly killed four Great Emperors of the same level, and in the end, he was also beaten to death.”
Chang Tian couldn’t help sucking in a breath of cold air, “Killed four Great Emperors of the same level?” Those who weren’t in this position found it difficult to imagine how difficult it would be. Chang Tian was also at Great Emperor level, and in the entire Demon Territory, he didn’t fear any of the other twelve Demon Saints. Even the First Demon Saint, Huang Wuji, he had fought one on one, but to kill four Demon Saints on his own was impossible. Forget about the four of them, as long as he fought one on one with Huang Wuji, if any of the Demon Saints interfered, he would be no match for them.
When one’s cultivation reached their current level, they had already reached the peak, so there wasn’t much of a difference between them. So, standing at this peak, Chang Tian was able to understand just how terrifying Wu Kuang was.
“That’s right,” Yang Kai said solemnly, “That battle was called the Battle of the Great Emperors by the Star Boundary, and that battlefield turn to Star Fragments Sea.”
Chang Tian’s face was filled with fascination as he muttered, “Wu Kuang, Heaven Devourer Battle Law, an unparalleled genius! If I could compete with such a character in my lifetime, my life would not have been wasted, what a pity…”
Yang Kai smiled slightly and didn’t tell him that Wu Kuang had come back to life again, and now that he had become one with Hongchen Great Emperor, they had formed a strange balance. “Since that battle, the Heaven Devourer Great Emperor's name has been famous for tens of thousands of years, and his fame has never diminished. Since ancient times, he has been recognized as the number one Great Emperor in the Star Boundary, and the Heaven Devour Battle Law he created is the most evil and powerful technique in the Star Boundary.”
Hearing this, Chang Tian’s expression changed, “That cultivation technique… has fallen into your hands?”
Originally, Yang Kai had been talking about the Great World when he suddenly changed the subject to the Heaven Devourer Battle Law. Chang Tian’s perception was extremely sharp, so he was able to immediately understand what was happening.
Yang Kai nodded, “Yes, when I first entered the Star Boundary a year ago, this Junior had crossed paths with Wu Kuang’s descendants and was fortunate enough to obtain the Heaven Devourer Battle Law. However, at that time, this Junior’s cultivation had reached a certain level and he had no intention of cultivating any other cultivation technique, so he had no use for it. It was only later that he learned that the Heaven Devourer Battle Law was not something anyone could cultivate. Although this cultivation method was powerful, it had a great drawback. Now, it seems that i was quite fortunate.”
If he had really cultivated the Heaven Devourer Battle Law back then, his temperament might have been distorted. Although his physique was strong, in some aspects it was inferior to his Embodiment.
Chang Tian nodded lightly and said, “The stronger a cultivation technique is, the more stringent its requirements are. The Heavenly Dao takes away surpluses while replenishing deficits. This is only reasonable.”
Yang Kai continued, “This Junior also has something called the Mysterious Boundary Bead, and its interior is a world of its own.” Pointing forward, he continued, “It is the embryonic form of this world. Whether it is the Heaven Devourer Battle Law or the Mysterious Boundary Bead, there is nothing special about them, but when this Junior combined these two together… something amazing happened.”
“What is it?” Although he had some guesses, Chang Tian couldn’t help asking.
“The Mysterious Small World can actually swallow other spaces to strengthen itself, allowing Senior to see this situation today.”
Chang Tian looked around and sighed, “No wonder although this world is vast, it has no inhabitants.” Since it was a new world formed by devouring the missing continents, it naturally had no living creatures. Thinking for a moment, Chang Tian asked, “But didn’t you say you didn’t cultivate the Heaven Devourer Battle Law? How could you combine it with that… Mysterious Boundary Bead?”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Junior really hasn’t cultivated it, but that doesn’t stop Junior from using the Heaven Devourer Battle Law through the Mysterious Boundary Bead.” If it weren’t for his Embodiment, Yang Kai wouldn’t have been able to do so. It was precisely because his Embodiment cultivated the Heaven Devourer Battle Law and had a deep understanding of it that Yang Kai was able to use the information he received from his Embodiment to successfully activate the Heaven Devourer Battle Law.
“Unbelievable, truly incredible!” Chang Tian clicked his tongue in wonder, “If what you said was true, the missing continent would have been able to become what it is today, and if your Mysterious Boundary Bead could swallow the entire continent…”
“Senior’s thoughts are exactly what I want,” Yang Kai nodded seriously, “The Demon Territory has fallen apart and the various continents will soon disappear from the Demon Territory’s layout. Rather than letting them disappear, it would be better for me to swallow them and rebuild a new world. If I can really accomplish this, then all the living beings of the Demon Territory will be able to settle down in this new world and end the struggle between the two worlds. Senior and everyone from the Hundred Spirit Continent will also be able to find a home in this new world and no longer have to hide in a corner and suffer the bullying of other Demon Saints!”
As soon as these words came out, Chang Tian’s eyes flashed with a brilliant light, as if he had seen a great road laid out beneath his feet, but with his current strength, even if he valued Yang Kai greatly, he would not be able to convince him with just a few words.
A moment later, Chang Tian calmly said, “The Mysterious Boundary Bead is one of your trump cards, right? Are you not afraid of exposing it in front of me?” Anything that could evolve into a Great World was a precious treasure to anyone, even Demon Saints would be jealous of it.
Hearing this, Yang Kai smiled, “The Mysterious Boundary Bead is indeed Junior’s trump card, but since Junior has this idea, its existence will be revealed to the world sooner or later. Junior hid the Mysterious Boundary Bead a few years ago because Junior’s strength was insufficient to protect such a treasure, but now Junior is a High-Rank Demon King and has some ability to protect himself, so what harm is there in exposing it? Moreover, although the Mysterious Boundary Bead is precious, it is just an inanimate object. Only with the Heaven Devourer Battle Law can it devour space, and besides Wu Kuang, only Junior has the Heaven Devourer Battle Law.”
Chang Tian chuckled lightly, “Are you telling me all this today because you want this king to help you?”
Yang Kai said seriously, “Creating a new world is not something this Junior can accomplish alone, and in the entire Demon Territory, only Senior can be trusted, so please lend me a hand.”
Yang Kai didn’t know if Chang Tian was worthy of his trust, after all, he hadn’t been in contact with him for long and didn’t understand his temperament. However, it was a fact that Chang Tian’s lifespan was running out, and the Hundred Spirit Continent had no future to rely on, so Yang Kai believed that Chang Tian would make the right choice.
Chang Tian didn’t immediately answer, only muttering to himself with a solemn expression. After a long time, he slowly said, “It’s not that this King doesn’t want to believe you, it’s just that there’s no evidence. If this world can really evolve as you say and eventually become an existence like the Demon Territory, then what harm is there in this King helping you?”
“Then how does Senior want me to prove it?” Yang Kai asked.
Chang Tian smiled lightly, “Tt’s better to see it with my own eyes than a thousand words.”
