Finding a secluded place to hide, Yang Kai recalled the half of the World Source Liquid he had yet to obtain and felt his heart ache. Although he had already collected quite a lot of it, who could complain about having too much of it?
The World Source Liquid contained a world-shattering amount of Primordial Qi, enough to allow a Third-Order Emperor Realm master who had been stuck at a bottleneck for many years to break through to the Pseudo Emperor Realm. If he could collect more of it, he would be able to create many more Pseudo Emperor Realm masters for the Star Boundary.
He could only say that was how it supposed to be, but sit was useless to think too much.
After letting out a long sigh, Yang Kai finally let go of the knot in his heart and sent his consciousness into the Mysterious Small World, discovering that Bing Yun, Yang Yan and Gan Li had all woken up and were gathered together talking about something.
Obviously, they had discovered that they were in Yang Kai’s Mysterious Small World, so they didn’t show any signs of panic, but when they recalled their previous encounter, they couldn’t help feeling some lingering fear.
Yang Kai’s Divine Sense appeared, and after everyone greeted him, Gan Li said, “Many thanks to Sir Yang. If it weren’t for Sir Yang, this Gan would likely have died.”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “Sir Gan is too polite. You and I are both subordinates of Army's General Li, and we both contributed to the peace of the Star Boundary. Now that the Demon Race are coveting our world, if this Yang is in trouble, and if Sir Gan has the ability to save me, I’m afraid he won’t just stand by and watch.”
“Naturally,” Gan Li nodded seriously, “But no matter what, this Gan will remember Sir Yang’s life-saving grace. In this Profound Heaven Temple, if Sir Yang has any requests, feel free to ask.”
The two of them exchanged a few polite words, neither of them bringing up the matter of the World Source Liquid, neither of them knowing if Gan Li had not seen it or if he had deliberately not mentioned it. But thinking about it, Yang Yan had seen it before, so there was no reason for Gan Li not to see it. It was definitely because of the World Source Liquid that he had fallen into the trap of the World Killing Array.
As for whether he could recognize the World Source Liquid, that was another story.
“What does Senior Gan plan to do next?” Yang Kai cut straight to the chase.
“Naturally, I’ll try my best to obtain that Great Dao opportunity and search for traces of the Boid Heavenly Cauldron,” Gan Li frowned and smiled bitterly, “But speaking of which, ever since I entered this Profound Heaven Temple, I’ve been searching for the Void Heavenly Cauldron, but unfortunately, I haven’t found anything. Did any of you discover anything?”
Yang Yan said, “No clues at all.” Turning to Yang Kai, she asked, “Boy, are you sure that Sheng Yuzhu wasn’t lying to you? Did she deliberately throw out a bait to attract the attention of others and then sneak off to do something?”
Yang Kai muttered, “Although it’s not impossible, this is the only clue we have.” He hadn’t obtained any useful information from the Demon Race’s Half-Saint, only that the Demon Saints had ordered them to kill the Star Boundary's Pseudo Emperor, but why would he need to specifically instruct them to do so?
The struggle between the two worlds had never ceased, so if the masters of the Human and Demon Race met here, could there still be any chance of peace?
“In any case, our top priority now is to find the Void Heavenly Cauldron and inquire about other information.” Turning to Gan Li, he asked, “If Sir Gan doesn’t mind, why not join us?”
Bing Yun and Yang Yan definitely had to go with him. This was something that had been decided long ago. He possessed the World Will, so the Demon Race would definitely target him. Even if he had the Space Laws, if he was alone, his situation would not be good. Not only the Demon Race, but at the final juncture, the Pseudo Emperors from the Star Boundary might also attack him.
Gan Li obviously knew about this situation as well. The current Yang Kai could already be considered an innocent man with a jade ring in his possession. Although he had the intention to accompany Yang Kai, he was afraid that Yang Kai and the others would misunderstand something, so he didn’t take the initiative to mention it. He didn’t expect Yang Kai to act so carefree, causing him to blush with shame.
Without giving him a chance to speak, Yang Kai continued, “This time, there are thirty Star Boundary Pseudo Emperors and forty Demon Realm Half Saints who have entered the Profound Heaven Temple. In terms of numbers alone, the Demon Race has an absolute advantage. If we don’t join forces, I’m afraid we’ll give the Demon Race a chance to defeat us one by one. So if it’s possible, this Yang implores Sir Gan to stay until the final Great Dao struggle.”
Since he had already said so much, if Gan Li were to refuse again, it would be unwise. Moreover, he had just accepted Yang Kai’s life-saving grace, so how could he have the face to refuse? Not to mention that he also had such intentions, so he immediately cupped his hands and said, “As you wish.”
Yang Kai smiled, “Good, then I’ll go fishing.”
“Fishing?” Gan Li looked at him suspiciously.
Yang Yan, on the other hand, immediately reacted and smiled, “Don’t catch any sharks.”
“So what if it’s a shark?” Yang Kai chuckled lightly before his figure faded away. Before he left, Yang Yan shot him a look.
At this moment, Gan Li also clearly understood what Yang Kai meant by fishing and suddenly said, “Interesting, interesting.” As he spoke, a look of anticipation appeared on his face.
Rushing outside, he sent a portion of his attention into the Mysterious Small World to quietly communicate with Yang Yan. The look Yang Yan had secretly sent him just now was clearly something she wanted to discuss with him in private.
“Boy, where’s the World Source Liquid? Have you obtained it yet?”
Sure enough, as soon as he contacted Yang Yan, she immediately sent him a voice transmission, but on the surface, she was talking to Gan Li about something else.
Yang Kai smiled, “If I said I didn’t obtain it, you wouldn’t believe me.”
“Very good, give me half!” Yang Yan decisively said.
Yang Kai almost fell to the ground, “Big Sister, are you trying to rob me?” As soon as she opened her mouth, she asked for half of it.
Yang Yan snorted, “If it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t have been able to find that thing, so giving me half of it is only right.”
“Fine, fine, I’ll give you half,” Yang Kai was too lazy to argue with her. In any case, he had collected so much World Source Liquid that he couldn’t use it all by himself, “But I only collected half of the World Source Liquid there, I can’t collect the other half.”
“Why?” Yang Yan didn’t understand.
“I can’t say for sure, but I feel that if we try to take it by force, a great catastrophe will befall us.”
“It’s that evil?” Yang Yan was startled and thought for a moment before saying, “It’s understandable, after all, that thing is a treasure that was born when the world was first formed. Alchemists tend to pick herbs carefully in order to preserve them so that they don’t lose their roots. If such a treasure like the World Source Liquid were to be taken away, it would damage one’s luck, but half of it is not a small amount.”
“Seeing how eager you are to obtain the World Source Liquid, do you know its effects?”
Yang Yan smiled lightly, “Do you want to know?”
“Tell me about it,” Although Yang Kai had tasted a little of the World Source Liquid and deeply felt the shock it had brought him, he was unable to fully explore its effects.
Yang Yan didn’t beat around the bush and asked, “Do you know why Senior Iron Blood is stronger than the other Great Emperors?”
“Is it not because of the Cultivation Techniques?” Yang Kai was stunned. Although the current ten Great Emperors of the Star Boundary were not ranked by anyone, the Iron Blood Great Emperor Zhan Wuhen was publicly acknowledged to be the strongest. Even the other Great Emperors had no objections to this.
“Of course not. As a Great Emperor, which cultivator’s cultivation method is worse than others’?” Yang Yan sneered, “Not to mention, when one’s cultivation reaches their level, what they compete with is only their own comprehension, it has nothing to do with cultivation methods. However… Wu Kuang is a special case. All of his achievements come from the Heaven Devourer Battle Law. It must be said that this fellow is truly a peerless genius.”
“Are you saying that Senior Iron Blood consumed the World Source Liquid?” Yang Kai asked in surprise.
“Yes! In the past, Sir once casually talked to me about the World Source Liquid in this world. He also said that he once had an opportunity to drink a cup of the World Source Liquid in the Profound Heaven Temple, and that cup of World Source Liquid has allowed him to benefit even now!”
Hiss… Yang Kai took a deep breath and suddenly stopped. He had already overestimated the effects of this World Source Liquid, but he had still underestimated it.
The Great Dao Competition that the Iron Blood Great Emperor had participated in was something that had happened the last time the Profound Heaven Temple had opened. So far, it had been sixty or seventy thousand years. At that time, he had consumed a cup of World Source Liquid, and the various insights he had gained from it had actually allowed him to benefit greatly. One could only imagine how precious this World Source Liquid was. Moreover, Zhan Wuhen had actually obtained a cup of World Source Liquid in the Profound Heaven Temple. Could it be that at that time, he had the ability to break through the World Killing Array? After so many years of other people’s affairs, Yang Kai didn’t know the inside story, but he was more certain about the terrifying effects of the World Source Liquid.
“Boy, don’t feel bad. I didn’t take half of the World Source Liquid for myself, now that the Demon Race has invaded, if I had the World Source Liquid, the Pseudo Emperors of the Star World might be able to increase their strength greatly. Moreover, if the Great Emperors were to escape, they might be able to use the World Source Liquid to increase their strength a little. At that time, I will tell them that I brought this treasure from the Profound Heaven Temple.”
Yang Kai replied, “For the Star Boundary, it’s only right.”
As such, Yang Kai’s remaining half of the World Source Liquid would belong to him, and the world only knew that Yang Yan had this thing in her possession. Even if someone coveted it, they wouldn’t associate it with him. It was just that Yang Yan might be in some trouble at that time, but thinking about how she was Zhan Wuhen’s subordinate, no one would have the courage to provoke her.
“Right, what about the other two Demons? Have you seen them?”
At that time, Yang Yan was trying to break through the natural Spirit Array, but unfortunately, two Demon Race Half-Saints had passed by, so Yang Yan had no choice but to increase her speed. In the end, she seemed to have touched some kind of restriction and was unable to sense anything. As for when Gan Li had been trapped there, she had no idea.
“Those two are already dead,” Yang Kai smiled. These two were probably the easiest Half-Saints he had killed in his entire life, without any resistance at all.
“Good,” Yang Yan coldly snorted.
Soon after, Yang Kai told her about the information he had obtained from the Strength Demon Half-Saint, as well as his and Bing Yun’s speculations, as well as the abnormality of the Demon Race Half-Saint who had died here.
After hearing this, Yang Yan remained silent for a long time before finally saying, “If that’s the case, your guess isn’t without reason. Killing and fresh blood… perhaps that’s the case. Only when enough people die here will the final opportunity be revealed.” With a light laugh, Yang Yan said, “Boy, go fishing. The more demons die, the greater our advantage will be. In the end, no matter who manages to seize that opportunity, they must not fall into the hands of the Demon Race.”
