The Seven Mist Sea’s Great Array which had surrounded the Two World Passageway was still being set up, and the various armies had been mobilizing and adjusting their positions. It was definitely not something that could be completed in a day or two. According to Li Wuyi’s estimates, it would be extremely fast if they could finish setting up the Great Array within half a year.
As such, the Seven Mist Sea had already issued an order. In the shortest time possible, half a year, or even a year, the gate between the two worlds would open, and at that time, the decisive battle with the Demon Race would begin.
The Star Boundary’s various armies were all rubbing their fists in anticipation.
Yang Kai returned to the Lower Planes Star Field. He was proficient in the Space Laws and had obtained the acknowledgement of the Star Boundary and he had refine the Star Field’s Source. If he wanted to return to the Star Field, he didn’t need to go through the Star Court; he had an advantage other Star Field Masters didn’t have.
Last time, after more than a decade of hard work, he had finally managed to separate the Second Territory from the Mysterious Small World and resolve this problem.
This time, he had come here to refine a Space Artifact similar to the Mysterious Boundary Bead, this idea had also been enlightened by Fu Renjie’s words. He was right, if there was a Space Artifact, whether it was the Star Boundary’s various armies marching together or launching surprise attacks, it would be extremely convenient.
Refining a Space Artifact was a piece of cake for Yang Kai.
Strictly speaking, the Meteorites and Dead Stars he had refined before could be considered Space Artifacts. If they were in Yang Kai’s hands, they could contain living beings inside.
However, those without the Space Laws were unable to use this ability.
As such, the only problem now was how to allow someone who didn’t understand the Space Laws to activate these artifacts.
With the precedent of the Space Spirit Bead as a reference, it was not difficult to solve this problem. Yang Kai was confident he could solve this problem on the eve of the decisive battle, but if he wanted to refine it, he would need some time.
Inside a small Dead Star Core, Yang Kai seemed to be asleep, but he was awake. The Space Laws transformed into an invisible wave that spread out and affected the entire Dead Star.
Under the effect of the Space Laws, the Dead Star’s size strangely shrank.
After an unknown period of time, when Yang Kai opened his eyes again, the Dead Star had transformed into a round bead. Yang Kai reached out and picked it up, frowning for a long time before putting it away.
Half a day later, in the Western Region’s Sixth Stem Army camp, Yang Kai appeared beside Su Yan.
Su Yan was currently meditating in her own tent, sitting cross-legged on her bed. At first glance, she thought Yang Kai was up to something and blushed, “Husband, don’t act rashly. It’s still daytime, if you act rashly, I… I will call for help.”
“Who are you calling?” Yang Kai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as he pulled her up, “Follow me.”
Su Yan was stunned, “Where?”
“Try something,” Yang Kai casually explained.
After exiting the tent, a group of patrolling soldiers happened to walk over. The patrol leader saw Yang Kai and Su Yan walk out of the tent together and immediately waved his hand, leading his team away.
“Stop!” Yang Kai shouted from behind.
The patrol leader’s body went stiff as he slowly turned around and said with a sad face, “Sir, this humble officer didn’t see anything.” Saying so, he turned to his subordinates, “Did you see anything?”
Everyone shook their heads vigorously.
Su Yan blushed, not knowing if she should explain herself.
However, Yang Kai had already led her to this group of people and handed her the bead in his hand. Pointing at the patrol leader, he said, “Take him in.”
Su Yan looked down at the round bead in her hand and her beautiful eyes lit up, “You succeeded?”
Before Yang Kai left, he had told the higher-ups about his plan, so when Su Yan heard this, she thought Yang Kai had succeeded.
Yang Kai shook his head, “I don’t know, so I’ll let you try!”
Su Yan nodded and stood in front of the patrol leader. Holding the bead in her hand, her Emperor Qi surged and her Divine Sense surged forward.
Opposite him, the patrol leader was trembling like a quail in winter, crying out miserably, “Sirs, this humble servant really didn’t see anything…”
“Shut up!” Yang Kai interrupted him.
The patrol leader immediately fell silent and swayed his body.
A moment later, Su Yan’s Emperor Qi calmed down and she withdrew her Divine Sense. Looking at Yang Kai, she shook her head and said, “It’s useless.” She tried several times but was unable to put the person in front of her into the bead.
“As expected,” Yang Kai wasn’t too disappointed and took back the item in Su Yan’s hand, frowning as he pondered over what had gone wrong.
With a soft thud, the patrol leader, who had been standing in place and not daring to move, swallowed his saliva, his heart filled with anxiety, wondering if he would be put in a difficult position if he were to bump into these two lords.
Yang Kai looked up, “Why are you still standing here?”
The patrol leader whispered, “Does Sir have any other instructions?”
Yang Kai waved his hand, “Go patrol.”
“Yes!” The patrol leader hurriedly bowed and led his team away.
Yang Kai stood there for three days and three nights. During this time, all the higher-ups in the army had come to visit him, but Su Yan knew that he must have thought of something important, so she had ordered people to set up defenses around him while she personally guarded him, not allowing anyone to approach.
Three days later, Yang Kai’s brow rose and a look of joy appeared on his face. With a chuckle, he stamped his foot and soared into the sky, disappearing in an instant.
This time, Yang Kai stayed in the Lower Planes Star Field for a much longer time than last time. Last time, it had only taken him half a month, but this time, it took him a full two months to appear.
He still appeared directly in Su Yan’s tent.
After the previous experience, Su Yan had gained some experience and didn’t try to warn him again.
The two of them walked out of the tent together and met with a group of patrolling soldiers. When their eyes met, the patrol leader’s face turned black.
Why was it like this again? The last time was like this, he had been frightened for nothing, but after two months, a similar scene appeared again.
He secretly made up his mind to never patrol this area again.
Not daring to run, he summoned up his courage and walked over, cupping his fists and greeting, “Greetings, Sir.”
Yang Kai glanced at him and muttered, “Why do I feel like you look familiar? Are you a High Heaven Palace disciple?”
The patrol leader respectfully replied, “Reporting to Sir, this humble officer has always wanted to join High Heaven Palace, but I don’t have such good fortune.”
Yang Kai patted him on the shoulder and said, “In times of crisis, it’s the same to serve in the Sixth Stem Army. This King has a very important task for you that concerns the survival of the Star Boundary.”
The patrol captain was overwhelmed by this unexpected favor, so he quickly straightened his back and said, “Sir, please speak. This humble subordinate will do his best until his death!”
“It’s not that serious, just stand still and don’t resist.” Turning to look at Su Yan, he ordered, “Capture him!”
Su Yan poured her Emperor Qi into the bead in her hand and sent her Divine Sense towards the patrol leader.
In the next moment, the patrol leader suddenly disappeared, leaving behind a few soldiers who stared at each other.
Yang Kai let out a loud laugh and, unable to restrain himself, picked up Su Yan who was next to him and spun her around.
Su Yan cried out in surprise. After Yang Kai put her down, her face turned red.
The few patrolling soldiers in front of him all stared with their eyes wide open as they stood dumbfounded on the spot. When they realized what was happening, they quickly looked up at the sky or down at the ground…
“Try collecting a few more,” Yang Kai waved his hand.
Su Yan was somewhat embarrassed, but when she heard this, she decisively stopped hesitating and used her Emperor Qi to collect all the people in front of her, immediately feeling much better.
“Let’s try it out and see what the limit is,” Yang Kai said as he led Su Yan through the main camp, leaving nothing behind…
An hour later, Yao Si appeared in the main camp and blocked Yang Kai and Su Yan’s path, his expression solemn as he said, “Sir, something has happened.”
“What is it?” Yang Kai frowned and saw his expression. Something big must have happened.
Yao Si said in a low voice, “This humble subordinate suspects someone has broken into the camp.”
Yang Kai’s face sank, “Who is so bold?”
Yao Si shook his head and looked around vigilantly, “For the time being, we don’t know. The person who came is definitely a powerful master. He quietly killed more than seventy of our patrol teams without making a single sound or showing any signs of fighting. This humble subordinate has already secretly ordered the various headquarters to bring people to investigate the main camp and make sure the culprits are found… Sir, why do you have such an expression?”
Yang Kai turned his head to look at Su Yan and said, “Before this, Wu Yin Army’s Commander, Senior Fu, asked me to reserve this thing for him. When you have time, deliver it to him. Also, tell him that this thing is closely related to his Divine Sense cultivation level. Tell him to act appropriately and not exhaust himself.”
“En!” Su Yan nodded obediently.
“I’m going to continue with my work,” Yang Kai coughed lightly, not even bothering to pay attention to the rest, communicated with the Star Field Source as his figure quickly blurred.
Yao Si frowned, “What is Sir doing? What about the people who broke into the camp?”
Su Yan glanced at him and sighed lightly before tossing the bead to him.
Receiving it, a look of suspicion appeared Yao Si’s face as he probed it with his Divine Sense. In the next moment, a look of joy appeared on his face, “Sir succeeded?”
Su Yan nodded.
“This is a joyous event! With this item’s help, my Star Boundary’s army…” Saying so, Yao Si suddenly frowned, “No one broke into the camp, right? The patrol teams that disappeared were all taken in here?”
Su Yan nodded again, “He told me to.”
Yao Si blinked his eyes and let out a long sigh. Having such a big boss was really tiring, but the birth of this Space Artifact in his hand had somewhat alleviated his dissatisfaction, so he quickly pulled himself together and said, “What is this thing called? The space inside isn’t small, it should be more than enough to accommodate any army.”
Su Yan said, “He called this thing a World Bead, so the space it contains is indeed not small, but if you want to collect living creatures, you will need to consume the Divine Consciousness power. The amount you can collect is closely related to your Divine Consciousness cultivation level.”
“A World Bead!” Yao Si raised his brow, “Is this something born from the Mysterious Boundary Bead? It’s quite appropriate… With Madam’s cultivation, how many people can she take in at once without damaging her combat power?”
Su Yan replied, “I tried for a long time just now and felt that it shouldn’t be a problem to collect three thousand people at once. Even if it’s somewhat exhausting, it shouldn’t affect my ability to fight with others.”
