One day, while Yang Kai was refining this World Bead, his mind was immersed in the mysteries of the Space Laws. Suddenly, his expression changed and he let out a soft cry of surprise, a strange look appearing on his face.
Inside the Mysterious Small World, there seemed to be something unusual.
Without moving, Yang Kai sent a wisp of his Divine Sense into the Mysterious Small World to determine the source of the abnormality, revealing his Soul Avatar.
This was a giant fragment of a continent that should have been swallowed up by Gun Gun and had just been swallowed.
Generally speaking, the fragments of a continent that were swallowed up would quickly melt into the world and fill the Third Territory, but this fragment seemed to be somewhat extraordinary. Even with the power of Gun Gun, it was unable to completely fuse with the fragment and instead remained outside.
The fragment was about a hundred thousand kilometers in radius and could not be said to be small. From the looks of it, it should have been buried deep underground. After being swallowed, the outer layer dissolved and the interior was preserved.
This hundred thousand kilometer radius was filled with a familiar yet shocking law.
Yang Kai didn’t even need to look carefully to know that this was the Time Law.
It was precisely because this fragment had been filled with the power of the Time Laws that this fragment of the continent had been safely preserved under the assimilation of the Mysterious Small World.
Yang Kai was extremely surprised.
This fragment was a piece of the Demon Territory Continent, so how could it be filled with the Time Laws? Moreover, it was filled with such a large area. What surprised him even more was that the aura of this Time Laws was exactly the same as what he had sensed in the Passing of Time Temple.
Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat. Could this Time Law have been left behind by the Passing of Time Great Emperor? If so, it meant that the Passing of Time Great Emperor had once visited the Demon Territory.
He couldn’t help recalling what Qiong Qi had once said. When the Passing of Time Great Emperor was cultivating in seclusion in the Divine Temple, he had suddenly sensed a profound mystery from the Outer universe and had left to roam about. In the end, he had never returned, only his Origin Treasure, Endless Hourglass, had returned to the Divine Temple.
The Passing of Time Great Emperor had undoubtedly encountered some kind of powerful enemy and suffered some kind of misfortune.
Could it be that when the Passing of Time Great Emperor left the Divine Temple all those years ago, he had come to the Demon Territory? In this Demon Territory, he had encountered a powerful enemy and fought a great battle. This place was the battlefield of the great battle that had taken place in the past, otherwise how could there be such a rich remnant of time laws?
It was just a guess, but there was no way to confirm it. After all, it was something that had happened tens of thousands of years ago, so who could say for sure? The world transforms, and the Demon Territory had collapsed. This battlefield had been buried deep underground, and no one had ever seen it.
If it weren’t for Yang Kai’s command to swallow the Demon Territory Continent, this battlefield that was buried deep underground would never have been able to see the light of day again.
Was it really the Passing of Time Great Emperor?
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before stepping forward towards the ancient battlefield. He had spent some time in the Passing of Time Temple and was extremely familiar with the aura of the remnant Time Law in it. Whether or not the Time Laws here were left behind by the Passing of Time Great Emperor, he only needed to enter and comprehend them.
Being outside this Ancient Battlefield, Yang Kai didn’t feel anything, but when he stepped into the ancient battlefield, he suddenly felt his thoughts stagnate. Not only did his thoughts stop, everything around him became extremely slow.
Knowing that he had been affected by the Time Laws, Yang Kai immediately sent out his Divine Sense to protect himself before barely escaping.
Continuing forward, the surrounding Time Laws became denser. After only a thousand feet, Yang Kai felt like he was unable to move. It wasn’t like he was bound by some kind of shackles, it was just that his thoughts were being delayed endlessly. Often, a single thought would take a long time for his body to react.
Yang Kai couldn’t help being shocked by how terrifying this Time Force was. After so many years, it was still so powerful, so what kind of scene was it during its peak? However, Yang Kai was certain of one thing. The power of time here was indeed left behind by the Passing of Time Great Emperor. In other words, when the Passing of Time Great Emperor left the Divine Temple, he had really entered the Demon Territory and fought an earth-shattering battle with an unknown master before finally leaving with heavy injuries.
However, before he could return to the Divine Temple, the Passing of Time Great Emperor had been severely injured. The Great Emperor had died, and the Endless Hourglass had returned to the Divine Temple on their own. The Great Emperor’s body had fallen to the East Sea, and after countless years, his bones had been scattered throughout the East Sea and obtained by the Monster Race.
All kinds of thoughts flashed across Yang Kai’s mind, but he was unable to respond.
Suddenly, he had an idea. Was the collapse of the Demon Territory’s continents related to the great war back then? Perhaps there was, perhaps there wasn’t, who could be certain?
Suppressing his turbulent emotions, Yang Kai walked forward at an extremely slow pace, each and every one of his movements like a wooden puppet. The Time Law cleansed his Soul, causing Yang Kai to feel as if he was walking a long time.
At the very beginning, Yang Kai had walked for a day, but after walking another three hundred meters, more than ten days had passed. However, after arriving here, Yang Kai’s expression suddenly changed.
This was because there was another force in the Ancient Battlefield that was entangled with the Time Laws in this place. He hadn’t felt it before because he was on the edge, but now that he had walked a bit more, he immediately noticed it.
In the battle tens of thousands of years ago, Great Emperor had fallen, and the fate of the Great Emperor’s enemies was unknown, but the two’s remaining auras were still evenly matched.
If Yang Kai hadn’t come, it might not have been a big deal, but just these two forces wreaking havoc in the Ancient Battlefield had formed a strange balance.
However, when Yang Kai split his attention to investigate, he inadvertently broke this balance, allowing these two terrifying forces to find a way out.
Although these two mysterious and unparalleled forces were powerful, without a host, it was impossible to determine a victor. Carefully speaking, in this Ancient Battlefield, these two forces had inherited their master’s will when they were alive, but they could only entangle and oppose each other, unable to cause any substantial damage.
Yang Kai’s arrival gave them a chance to determine who was stronger.
In an instant, Yang Kai felt two powerful forces invade his Soul Avatar. This force was so strong that he couldn’t resist it at all, using his Soul Avatar as a battlefield to fight back.
Yang Kai’s Soul Avatar suddenly began to transform, as if it would collapse at any moment.
Although his Soul cultivation had reached the level of a Pseudo Emperor, he had only sent a wisp of his Divine Sense to investigate the situation, so how could he withstand such a massive force? As a carrier, this Divine Sense was simply too weak.
It was like two giant dragons fighting in a pond. No matter what happened to these two dragons, the pond would definitely be destroyed.
Yang Kai’s expression changed drastically as he quickly poured all of his Soul’s power into this Soul Avatar. This time, it's not just a wisp of spirit, he was using his full strength. He knew that if he wasn’t careful, he would die here.
Being killed by the Qi of the Ancient Battlefield tens of thousands of years ago was a tragedy Yang Kai could not accept.
Inside his Knowledge Sea, his Divine Conscoiusness poured out and his transformed body stabilized, but his brow was filled with pain.
The two forces in his body didn’t seem to care about his feelings at all. Every time they collided, it was as if they wanted to tear him apart.
This was only the periphery. If he really went deep into the ancient battlefield, it would be even more terrifying.
Although the current situation was dangerous, it was not completely hopeless. As long as he left this ancient battlefield before his Soul was destroyed, he should be fine.
Thinking about it was one thing, but actually acting was incredibly difficult.
Previously, under the influence of the Time Laws, Yang Kai had spent ten days to travel a thousands feets, and that was only on the surface. Now that the Time Force had invaded his body, the effects were even greater.
Yang Kai wanted to retreat, but it took him a long time to turn around and slowly walk back.
After walking less than three meters, Yang Kai showed a look of pain, but what was strange was that this look of pain was also abnormally slow, as if time was being stretched endlessly.
A light cracking sound came from the depths of Yang Kai’s heart and he felt a sharp pain in his brow, as if it had been torn apart.
If anyone were here, they would definitely be able to see a crack appear between Yang Kai’s eyebrows.
A crack was just the beginning. As time passed, more cracks appeared on Yang Kai’s body, making him look like a porcelain doll that was about to break into pieces.
After a long time, Yang Kai finally understood what kind of crisis he was in. After a long time, he began to feel anxious, but at this moment, his Soul Avatar was covered in cracks, making him look both strange and terrifying.
Now that he was on the brink of death, Yang Kai’s state of mind actually stabilized. Although his pace was slow, he was still determined to return to where he came from. His mind was connected to his physical body outside the Mysterious Small World, so it was only a thought, but it took him a lot of effort.
After making contact, Yang Kai immediately activated the Soul Warming Lotus.
A seven colored light blossomed and in his Knowledge Sea, the Seven Colored Treasure Island shrank, transforming into the true form of the Soul Warming Lotus, constantly rotating high up in the sky, releasing a seven colored light.
Like a drought, Yang Kai’s sluggish thoughts suddenly recovered at this moment, and seven colored light burst out from the cracks in his body, gushing out from his mouth and nose before enveloping his entire Soul.
The majestic power of the Soul Warming Lotus cut off the Ancient Battlefield’s influence on him. In that instant, Yang Kai’s figure flickered and he quickly fled.
At this moment, he had completely recovered and was no longer affected by the Time Laws.
As he rushed out of the Ancient Battlefield, Yang Kai’s soul returned to his body.
On Gun Gun's head, Yang Kai, who was sitting cross-legged, suddenly opened his eyes and gasped for breath, like a drowning man who had just been fished out. His face was filled with lingering fear and his clothes were drenched in sweat.
Before he could examine it carefully, Yang Kai let out a muffled groan as two streams of golden blood flowed out from his nose. His head ached and he couldn’t help howling.
Although the encounter just now had not destroyed his soul, it had also injured his Soul. This kind of pain was not something an ordinary physical injury could compare to.
