“How is it different?” Bing Yun asked.
“They actually don’t know about the Void Heavenly Cauldron. Senior, don’t you think it’s strange?” Yang Kai frowned.
“Could it be that the information we received was wrong? Or could it be that someone was deliberately trying to confuse us?”
“I don’t think so,” Yang Kai slowly shook his head. Bing Yun’s words had a hidden meaning behind them, so how could he not understand what she meant? However, the information about the Void Heavenly Cauldron had been specially told to him by Sheng Yuzhu. Yang Kai had no grievances with her and had even saved her life, so there was no reason for her to lie to him about this.
What’s more, if this Void Heavenly Cauldron was really made up by Sheng Yuzhu, what was her purpose? What benefit would it bring her?
“What does the Half-Saint from the Demon Territory know?”
A strange look appeared on Yang Kai’s face, “This is the most strange thing, they actually don’t know anything.”
“They don’t know anything? Could it be that Can Ye didn’t tell them anything?” Bing Yun was surprised. Can Ye had participated in the last Great Dao struggle and had benefited greatly from it, becoming a Great Emperor. No one in the entire Star Boundary understood the situation inside this Profound Heaven Temple better than him. The Star Boundary had thought that Can Ye would definitely leak a lot of information, but now it seemed that they were thinking too much.
“They haven’t seen Can Ye at all recently, but considering that he’s currently healing his injuries, there’s nothing wrong with that. Xue Li actually issued an order to the Half-Saints.”
Yang Kai looked at Bing Yun and coldly said, “Kill!”
Bing Yun couldn’t help laughing, “What kind of order is that?” Even without this order, if the Demon Territory’s Half-Saint and Star Boundary’s Pseudo Emperor were to encounter each other here, it would definitely be a fierce battle, so there was no need for her to give any special instructions.
“If you kill too many, you will naturally know what to do,” Yang Kai added.
“Is this also the words of the Demon Saint?” Bing Yun frowned.
Yang Kai nodded lightly.
Bing Yun remained silent for a moment before asking suspiciously, “Could it be that if you want to pry into the secrets of the heavens, you need to sacrifice life and blood?”
Yang Kai let out a sigh and said, “I think so too, otherwise, the Demon Saints wouldn’t have given me such special instructions. There’s something else I’m very concerned about…” Saying so, he suddenly waved his hand and a dried corpse appeared in front of him.
The dried corpse didn’t have the slightest bit of moisture on its body, as if it had been there for countless years, its flesh and blood essence completely disappeared.
Although it was a corpse, it still retained some traces of its former life. Bing Yun could tell at a glance that this dried corpse was the corpse of the previous Strength Demon.
“How did it become like this?” Bing Yun’s brow wrinkled before her expression changed drastically as she stared at Yang Kai, “Yang Kai, could it be…”
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Senior, don’t worry. Although I know the essence of the Heaven Devourer Battle Law, I have never cultivated this Evil Technique before.” This dried corpse looked like it had been drained of its vitality by some kind of special technique and had traces of the Heaven Devourer Battle Law. Yang Kai naturally knew what Bing Yun was worried about.
“In fact, he wasn’t killed by me.” Although Yang Kai had the ability to do so in the Mysterious Small World, Strength Demon's death was caused by the explosion of the Divine Soul Restriction. Not only could the Divine Soul Restriction in his mind cause a backlash to those who tried to search his soul, but when Strength Demon revealed some information about the Profound Heaven Temple, it also burst out and directly killed Strength Demon.
Yang Kai’s failure to obtain much information was also related to this.
“However, the moment he died, I clearly felt an invisible force pass through the World Barrier of the Mysterious Small World and envelop him, draining all of his strength.”
He was the master of the Mysterious Small World, so his senses were extremely sharp. Although this force was extremely well hidden, he was still able to detect it.
Recalling what had happened before, Yang Kai felt that the fog in front of him had been lifted slightly…
“Why is it like this?” Bing Yun was extremely surprised. What kind of power was it that could actually break through the barrier of the Mysterious Small World? One had to know that it was a small world.
“In fact, before this, I also killed a Half-Saint. After that guy died, his situation was exactly the same as that of this Strength Demon. At that time, I didn’t notice anything, but now it seems that this Profound Heaven Temple is not simple.”
“All existences who participate in the Great Dao Competition will become like this as long as they die in the Profound Heaven Temple,” Yang Kai pointed at the dried corpse on the ground as a bright light flashed across his eyes, “Combined with Xue Li’s instructions to the Half-Saints, I think Senior’s previous words are quite reasonable.”
“If that’s the case, then I’m afraid we have to act first. The Demon Territory has come prepared, if we don’t take precautions, we’ll be at a disadvantage,” Bing Yun said with a solemn expression, secretly surprised by Yang Kai’s strength. Before this, he had actually killed a Half-Saint, and she was also a Pseudo Emperor, so she naturally knew how difficult it was to kill an opponent of the same level on her own.
Yang Kai nodded in agreement, “At the very least, we must let everyone know our current situation.”
If the final secret of the Profound Heaven Temple, the key to the throne of Great Emperor, was to sacrifice many people, then the Demon Race would have the advantage in terms of intelligence. After all, they had the Demon Saint’s orders, and with their advantage in numbers, they wouldn’t be so reserved.
On the other hand, the Pseudo Emperors from the Star Boundary had not yet figured out the situation, so they were probably planning to avoid it as much as possible.
If they really used such a mentality to deal with the Demon Race’s Half-Saint, they would definitely suffer greatly.
After saying this, Yang Kai let out a bitter laugh, “However, we still need to meet someone else first. Since entering this place, Senior is the first companion I’ve met.” Naturally, the one who had been spying on him was not counted.
Bing Yun smiled and said, “My luck is better than yours, you’re the second.”
“Oh?” Yang Kai was surprised, “Who else did Senior run into?”
Hearing this, Yang Kai was overjoyed, “Where is she?” In his original plan, Yang Yan and Bing Yun had planned to travel together with him, but after entering this Profound Heaven Temple and spreading out, he had been unable to find the whereabouts of the two of them. It was only by chance that he was able to find Bing Yun.
Yang Kai even faintly suspected that the World Will in his body was causing trouble, otherwise how could he have run into Bing Yun being besieged the moment he came out?
However, since he had encountered her, he naturally had to act according to plan. Originally, he had planned to look for Yang Yan again, but who would have thought that Bing Yun would actually meet her?
Bing Yun pointed in a certain direction and said, “During this one day journey, we found something interesting there. She stayed behind to deal with it while I came out to look for you.”
Even a Pseudo Emperor would find something interesting, so it was definitely an extremely precious treasure. It wasn’t surprising; after all, this Profound Heaven Temple had seized the world’s fortune, so Yang Kai had seen many good things along the way.
“Let’s go meet up with her. It’s always easier to deal with things with more people.”
“I had the same idea,” Bing Yun smiled lightly.
The two of them immediately set off in the direction Bing Yun had come from, and halfway there, Yang Kai asked around for some information about what had attracted Yang Yan to stay.
Bing Yun didn’t try to hide anything and told him the truth.
According to her, after meeting Yang Yan in the Profound Heaven Temple, she had begun searching for traces of Yang Kai, but she hadn’t been able to find him. Instead, she had inadvertently found a strange pool that was a few feet deep and exuded an enchanting fragrance.
According to Yang Yan’s observations, this pool of water was likely the legendary World's Source Liquid.
If it was an ordinary treasure, it would have been fine, but this was a rare opportunity in the struggle for the Great Dao. Unless one could obtain it easily, who would waste precious time on ordinary treasures?
However, this was the World's Source Liquid, a supreme treasure that would only be born when the world was first formed. Not to mention a Pseudo Emperor, even a Great Emperor would have great uses for it. If one could consume it, they would definitely be able to comprehend the Heavenly Dao and greatly increase their strength.
However, there was a natural world spirit array at the edge of the pool. This Spirit Array was extremely profound, and unless one broke it, it was impossible to approach the pool, let alone obtain the World's Source Liquid.
On the other hand, Yang Yan was a top-notch Artifact Array Master. Whether it was Artifact Refining or the Dao of Arrays, no one in the entire Star Boundary could compare to her. If there was anyone in this world who could break this natural Spirit Array, it would definitely be her.
As such, Yang Yan stayed behind to break the Spirit Array while Bing Yun was unable to help, so she came out to inquire about Yang Kai’s whereabouts.
“World Source Liquid…” Hearing this, Yang Kai’s eyes also turned red.
He had heard of this treasure before, but he had never thought that he would be able to find it. After all, it was a supreme treasure that could only be born at the beginning of the world. Even if this world had once been born, after countless years of time, it would have long since disappeared.
As for the Profound Heaven Temple, it was a World Secret Realm that was born from the world itself, so it wasn’t impossible for it to retain some of the things it had when it first opened.
It was no wonder that Sheng Yuzhu had said that as long as a Pseudo Emperor participated in the Great Dao Competition, even if they couldn’t become a Great Emperor, as long as they were able to survive, their strength would greatly increase.
This World Source Liquid was undoubtedly a good thing that could allow one’s strength to soar without any worries.
Yang Yan alone might not be able to obtain such a treasure, but if it was discovered by a Half-Saint, it would definitely result in a fierce battle. Even if other Pseudo Emperors were to discover it, it would likely cause some trouble.
Knowing that it was likely the World Source Liquid, Yang Kai immediately sped up and sped forward with Bing Yun.
The journey was uneventful, and it only took them half a day to arrive.
Yang Yan and Bing Yun discovered that the pool containing the World Source Liquid was located in a jungle. There were huge trees all around the jungle, but there was only one spot that was empty. In the middle of the jungle, there was a wooden stake about ten meters in diameter. The middle of the wooden stake was empty, forming a pool. The milky white liquid in the pool was likely the World Source Liquid.
Of course, this was only Yang Yan’s guess. After all, before breaking the Spirit Array, she couldn’t be certain what was inside the pond, but even if it wasn’t World Source Liquid, it was definitely something useful to a Pseudo Emperor.
