A strange fragrance lingered at the tip of Yang Kai’s nose as he sniffed it lightly. Looking towards the source of this fragrance, he saw a small cluster of short vines not far from where he was standing. The vines were covered in faint golden fruits the size of a dragon’s eye. These fruits had a strange shape and at first glance, they looked like cicadas lying on top of each other.
This strange fragrance came from these fruits.
Yang Kai stepped forward and picked a fruit, carefully examining it.
“Golden Cicada Fruit?” Yang Kai’s eyes lit up. This was a good thing. Although it had been a long time since he had personally refined pills and medicines, his foundation as an Emperor Alchemist was still there, so his horizons naturally couldn’t be compared to ordinary people. This Golden Cicada Fruit was an Emperor Grade Spirit Fruit and could be used to refine a pill called Golden Cicada Pill. Consuming it would greatly increase a cultivator’s cultivation speed.
Even if he didn’t refine it, the Golden Cicada Fruit had its own special effects.
This information was something Yang Kai had read from some ancient books, and in the Star Boundary, the Golden Cicada Fruit had long since disappeared, so he had never seen it before. However, with the Golden Cicada Fruit’s distinctive characteristics, how could he be mistaken?
The Profound Heaven Temple, this World Secret Realm… seemed somewhat incredible.
He had only been randomly teleported here, yet he had already seen the Golden Cicada Fruit. From this, it could be seen just how rich the resources in this Secret Realm were. It was no wonder that Sheng Yuzhu had said that as long as the masters who participated in the Great Dao Competition were able to walk out of the Profound Heaven Temple alive, their strength would undergo a tremendous change.
Now it seemed that there were opportunities everywhere in the Profound Heaven Temple.
“Where the Golden Cicada Fruit exists, there must be a Golden Striped Wind Snake guarding it…” Just as Yang Kai’s mind flashed with the information he had read before, a black shadow suddenly shot out from the vine at lightning speed.
“As expected!” Yang Kai grinned and reached out to grab the black shadow.
It was smooth and slippery to the touch, but it was actually a strange Spirit Snake about ten meter long with two fleshy wings growing out from its sides. The Spirit Snake had a straight golden line on its back, and its tongue was emitting a hissing sound. The snake’s mouth was also emitting a foul and poisonous aura.
The Golden Cicada Fruit had long since disappeared from the Star Boundary, so the Golden Striped Wind Snake accompanying it was naturally nowhere to be seen. Although it was only a ten meter long Spirit Snake, its body exuded an aura comparable to a Monster King. In other words, this Spirit Snake was almost equivalent to a human race Emperor Realm master.
On top of that, the Golden Striped Wind Snake's poison was extremely potent, and its movements were as swift as the wind. Even an ordinary Emperor Realm master would have to admit that they were unlucky if they were to encounter it.
The Spirit Snake in his hand was still struggling, its Monster Qi surging as its long body curled up and wrapped around Yang Kai’s arm, trying to break it.
Chuckling lightly, Yang Kai released his Dragon Prestige and the struggling Golden Striped Wind Snake immediately stopped moving. The body wrapped around Yang Kai’s arm also became limp, and a trace of fear appeared in its eyes.
All snakes in the world possessed the Dragon Race’s bloodline, but that bloodline was extremely thin, so how could this Golden Striped Wind Snake maintain its original heart under Yang Kai’s pure Dragon Prestige?
“Don’t panic, I won’t take your life,” Yang Kai said to it. He didn’t know if it could understand what he was saying, but Yang Kai estimated that it couldn’t. Although this Golden Striped Wind Snake was quite powerful, its intelligence was not high, so it only had its instincts.
Saying so, he put it into the Mysterious Small World and placed it into the medicine garden.
Afterwards, Yang Kai plucked the Golden Cicada Fruit in front of him and began transplanting the entire vine into the medicine garden.
The Golden Cicada Fruit Vine and Golden Striped Wind Snake were born together. The Golden Striped Wind Snake's growth was inseparable from the sap contained in the Golden Cicada Fruit Vine, and the aura emitted by the Golden Striped Wind Snake was also beneficial to the growth of the Golden Cicada Fruit.
If Yang Kai wanted to transplant the Golden Cicada Fruit, he would naturally need to bring both of them into the Medicine Garden. If he were to take only one of them, it would be impossible for it to survive. This was probably the biggest reason why Golden Cicada Fruit and Golden Striped Wind Snake had disappeared from the Star Boundary.
Although Yang Kai’s main purpose in entering Profound Heaven Temple this time was to participate in the Great Dao competition, under the premise that he didn’t waste too much time and energy, Yang Kai didn’t mind enriching his medicine garden.
The things in this World Secret Realm were all extraordinary and could not be found easily. It would be a pity to miss them, but once he left the Profound Heaven Temple, these things could rapidly increase the strength of his companions.
A moment later, Yang Kai was done. After a moment of contemplation, he waved his hand and a figure wrapped in Demonic Qi appeared in front of him.
Shockingly, this was a Demon Race, and judging from the aura emanating from the body, it was a mid rank Demon King.
These were naturally Yang Kai’s captives. Earlier, Yang Kai had joined forces with Jiu Feng and Yang Yan to wreak havoc in the Demon Cave outside Vast Wave City, killing many Demon Race masters and also capturing some.
At that time, Jiu Feng and Yang Yan didn’t know why Yang Kai had taken so much effort to capture these Demon Kings, Yang Kai didn’t explain anything. Now, it was time to use these captives.
This Demon King had been trapped in the Mysterious Small World for many days and had yet to figure out what was happening. When he saw Yang Kai’s figure in front of him, his expression changed drastically and he quickly retreated as he punched out.
Yang Kai casually blocked the other party’s attack and simply stared at him, showing no intention of pursuing him.
Seeing this scene, the rapidly fleeing Demon King couldn’t help feeling his heart skip a beat. Before he could figure out what Yang Kai’s intentions were, his eyes suddenly widened and his aura fluctuated violently, becoming unstable.
A furious roar rang out, and in less than three breaths of time, the Demon King actually exploded, not even leaving behind a corpse.
Yang Kai couldn’t help frowning as he raised his hand and released the second Demon King.
A few breaths later, the second Demon King also arrived in the same place as the previous Demon King and exploded into a bloody mist.
Then a third…
After the third Demon King died in front of him, Yang Kai stopped. Now it seemed that the Profound Heaven Temple’s World Secret Realm really did have a special restriction. As long as one’s strength wasn’t that of a Pseudo Emperor or a Half-Saint, as long as they entered this place, they would die without an intact corpse.
The reason he was safe and sound was most likely because he had obtained the inheritance of the Bright Moon Greaat Emperor and had obtained the approval of the World Will.
Moreover, this mechanism should only be used against outsiders. The three Demon Kings Yang Kai had released had all died, but the Golden Striped Wind Snake Monster King from before was still alive and well. The reason for this was that one of them had trespassed on their own while the other had been born and raised here.
Since he had already come to a conclusion, Yang Kai naturally didn’t bother probing further.
However… it had been so long, why hadn’t they come yet? Yang Kai frowned slightly, a bad feeling rising in his heart.
This time, when he entered the Profound Heaven Temple, Li Wuyi had naturally made arrangements for him. With the World Will, it was very likely that he would become the main target of the Demon Race. Even if Yang Kai had the strength of a Half-Saint now, it was impossible for him to resist the joint attacks of so many Demon Race masters.
Yang Kai could only join forces with others to turn the situation around.
However, there were very few people who would join forces with them, and Yang Kai didn’t trust most of them. Originally, Li Wuyi had arranged for Yang Yan and Yang Kai to join forces, but after confirming the candidates to enter the Profound Heaven Temple, Bing Yun found Li Wuyi and after a long discussion, Bing Yun became one of the allies.
In other words, in this Profound Heaven Temple, Yang Kai could only trust Yang Yan and Bing Yun.
According to their previous agreement, after entering this place, they would immediately use the Space Spirit Bead to teleport to Yang Kai’s side, then hide in Yang Kai’s Mysterious Small World and act accordingly.
But in reality, Yang Yan and Bing Yun were nowhere to be seen.
Under the turbulence of the Space Laws, Yang Kai’s mind connected with the Space Spirit Bead and after a moment, he sighed lightly, “As expected…”
The worst case scenario had occurred. Inside the Profound Heaven Temple, the Space Spirit Bead was actually unable to play any role. Yang Kai could clearly feel that there was a force suppressing the Space Spirit Bead’s teleportation, preventing him from going to Yang Yan or Bing Yun.
The situation was quite bad! However, it wasn’t as if he hadn’t considered this situation before. In a World Secret Realm like the Profound Heaven Temple, there would definitely be all kinds of unimaginable restrictions. The existence of the Space Spirit Bead was too unfair to the competition of Great Dao. Perhaps this world had sensed something and caused the Space Spirit Bead to lose its effect in this World Secret Realm.
If he couldn’t use the Space Spirit Bead, what about teleporting?
With a single thought, Yang Kai took a step forward, his figure quickly blurring as he disappeared.
In another part of the jungle, Yang Kai suddenly appeared, rubbing his chin thoughtfully.
It was good news that his teleportation wasn’t restricted. This way, even if he encountered many Half Saints working together, he could still escape if he couldn’t defeat them.
However, it would be best if he could meet up with Bing Yun and Yang Yan now and then find the Void Heavenly Cauldron.
Yang Kai had thought that since he possessed the World Will, he would definitely be able to gain some advantage in this Great Dao competition. Perhaps he would be able to sense something after entering the Profound Heaven Temple, but in fact, the invisible World Will had not provided him with any substantial help, so he had not been able to sense anything unusual.
Yang Kai didn’t know how big this World Secret Realm was, nor did he know where the Void Heavenly Cauldron was located, so for the time being, Yang Kai had no choice but to settle down.
Concealing his aura as much as possible, Yang Kai traversed through the jungle with great gains!
This jungle was filled with abundant resources, all of which were rare treasures that had long since disappeared from the Star Boundary. Many of these things were things that even Yang Kai couldn’t name, let alone know their specific uses.
Perhaps only Wondrous Pill Great Emperor could tell what these herbs were.
However, Yang Kai had his own Mysterious Small World and his own medicine garden, so whenever he encountered one, he would naturally place it in his medicine garden and let the two little wood spirits slowly torture it.
Two hours later, Yang Kai was already traversing a thousand kilometers through the jungle when he suddenly stopped and turned his head towards a certain direction, a smile appearing on his face, “I finally met someone.”
There was a faint sound of battle coming from the other side, but he didn’t know what was happening, but since he had encountered it, he had to go take a look. What if it was Yang Yan and Bing Yun?
