“So the key is how to restore vitality to this world?” Great Emperor Flower Shadow’s eyes lit up.
Zhang Ruoxi nodded and said, “That’s right.” Pausing for a moment, she continued, “I don’t know if Sirs have thought about how Mo Sheng swallowed the Demon Territory’s Spirit Energy, but at that time, the Demon Territory was powerless to resist. In other words, he succeeded at that time, and the Demon Territory’s situation should have been worse than the current Star Boundary, but why did the Demon Territory still survive?”
Yang Kai crossed his arms and smiled, “If you have something to say, just say it, don’t beat around the bush.”
Zhang Ruoxi stuck out her tongue, “It’s the living being!”
“Living being?” Yang Kai raised his brow.
“The Demon Territory’s Spirit Energy has been devoured before, but the Demon Territory’s living beings have not gone extinct. As long as the living beings are alive, the Demon Territory will have vitality and the lost Spirit Energy will slowly recover… The only thing I don’t understand is, since the Demon Territory still has the Spirit Energy, why did Mo Sheng come to the Star Boundary?”
Yang Kai explained, “You haven’t been to the Demon Territory, so you don’t understand the situation there. Because of the great battle between Mo Sheng and the Passing of Time Great Emperor, the Demon Territory fell apart a long time ago. The entire Universe World was transformed into many continents, some of which even lost their vitality and were swallowed up by the void.”
“So that’s how it is!” Zhang Ruoxi understood, “Then it’s not difficult to explain why he’s willing to go so far.”
Zhan Wuhen didn't continue about what Zhang Ruoxi said and asked, “According to what you said, as long as there are enough living creatures in the Star Boundary, this world will have a chance to recover?”
“It shouldn’t be wrong,” Zhang Ruoxi nodded.
Zhan Wuhen turned his head to look at Yang Kai, “Yang Kai, I remember that in your Mysterious Boundary Bead, you take in many Star Boundary cultivators?”
Yang Kai said, “I’ll handle this matter immediately.” During the war between the two worlds, he had indeed taken in many people from the Star Boundary who had no home to return to. Now, the Mysterious Small World's First Territory was filled with people, not just this, but also the World Beads of the various armies.
These people’s strength wasn’t high, so they weren’t able to play much of a role in the war between the two worlds. He also couldn’t allow the Demon Race to poison them, so after they were taken into the Mysterious Boundary Bead or World Bead, they managed to survive until now.
Who would have thought that rebuilding the Star Boundary would require their strength?
“I’ll go talk to Wu Kuang. If you wants people, Wu Kuang can have as many as he wants,” Duan Hongchen said as he stood up and strode out.
Wu Kuang had used the Ancestral Domain as the core to refine and integrate all of the Lower Planes Star Fields, each of which contained countless living creatures.
Now that there were nine out of ten empty rooms in the Star Boundary, it was a good opportunity for him to get some people to supplement them, so he probably wouldn’t refuse.
Zhang Ruoxi said, “However, even if this is a method, it won’t be effective in a short period of time. Perhaps it will take a long time, so all of you should be mentally prepared.”
Zhan Wuhen said, “The length of time doesn’t matter, as long as there is still hope.”
Yang Kai stood up and said, “I’m also going to settle the people inside the Mysterious Boundary Bead. I still have to deal with the Demon Race, so I’ll take my leave first.”
“Go,” Zhan Wuhen waved his hand.
Yang Kai stood up and with a thought, he disappeared.
When he reappeared, he was already in a simple palace a thousand kilometers away from High Heaven Palace. Beside him was Yu Rumeng, and not far away, Chang Tian and Bei Limo’s gazes also landed on him.
“Husband!” Yu Rumeng called out, “What did the Great Emperors say?”
Yang Kai patted her head and smiled, “I’ll handle the matters of the Demon Race.”
When Yu Rumeng heard this, she immediately let out a sigh of relief. She was also a Demon Race. Although many of her surviving clansmen had been enemies with the Star Boundary before, those Demon Race had basically only followed orders and were unable to make any decisions on their own. Now that the Star Boundary had won a great victory and the Demon Territory had suffered a crushing defeat, if the Star Boundary wanted to exterminate them, it would be understandable, but if that was the case, as a Demon Saint, she couldn’t help feeling sad.
Since it was handed over to Yang Kai to handle, it meant it wasn’t a pessimistic result.
Sure enough, under Bei Limo and Chang Tian’s watchful eyes, Yang Kai said, “All of the Demon Race will be taken into the Mysterious Boundary World by me and will not be allowed to step into the Star Boundary again.”
Chang Tian nodded, “That’s for the best.”
Bei Limo also breathed a sigh of relief.
Accompanied by the three Demon Saints, Yang Kai sent the surviving Demon Race army into the Mysterious Small World and settled them into the Third Territory. The tens of million strong army that had been sent into the vast Third Territory was like a stone sinking into the sea, not even the slightest ripple.
After finishing this, it was half a day later.
After that, Yang Kai rushed to various parts of the Star Boundary and chose a few places that weren’t too affected by the conflict between the two worlds. He released the Star Boundary natives he had brought into the Mysterious Small World in batches and even spared no effort in creating a suitable environment for these humans to live and multiply.
After a dozen or so days, Yang Kai’s footsteps spread across the four regions of Star Boundary.
A single spark has been cast down, but no one knew how long it would take for them to set it ablaze.
However, after this long journey, Yang Kai was able to clearly feel the decline of the Star Boundary. When the war between the two worlds had just begun, the reason why the Great Emperors and Demon Saints had agreed not to fight was because they were afraid that if the battle between them became too fierce, it would bring irreparable damage to the Star Boundary.
However, as the war between the two worlds continued and the Great Demon God returned, everything became uncontrollable. The entire world’s Spirit Energy were mostly devoured, the laws were broken, the world falling apart, and the end of the world was everywhere.
In the past, the beautiful mountains and clear waters had all been transformed.
The impact of his last battle with the Great Demon God was something that could not be resolved in tens of thousands of years.
Hopefully, Zhang Ruoxi’s method was useful. Although tens of thousands of years was a long time, it was nothing for a Universe World.
Ten days later, Yang Kai returned to High Heaven Palace.
As soon as he returned, he saw Wu Kuang sitting cross-legged on the ground waving at him.
Wu Kuang’s body was still several hundred zhang tall, and he had just swallowed the Great Demon God’s Soul not long ago, so it was likely that he had not fully digested what he had obtained and was temporarily unable to shrink his body.
Yang Kai hesitated for a moment before flying over and floating in front of him, “Is there something you need?”
“I’m leaving!” Wu Kuang grinned.
“Leaving?” Yang Kai frowned, “Where?”
After asking this question, Yang Kai came to his senses and asked in surprise, “Outer Universe?”
Wu Kuang nodded, “Do you want to know why back then, even though this king was already the number one master of the Star Boundary, I still had to constantly devour power?” Without waiting for Yang Kai’s reply, Wu Kuang continued, “Because the Great Emperor’s name is not worthy of its name, because this king felt that there was an even higher realm of Martial Dao, because this king wanted to become even stronger… The one who comprehended the mysteries of the Outer Universe is not only Passing of Time Great Emperor!”
Yang Kai nodded lightly. Before becoming a Great Emperor, he had thought that a Great Emperor was an even higher realm, the pinnacle of the Martial Dao, but now that he was in this position, he knew that Wu Kuang’s words were true, the Great Demon God’s words were true.
The so-called Great Emperor was just a title, not a realm.
At the peak of the Emperor Realm, those who had the qualifications to touch upon the mysteries of the Open Heaven Stage were all Pseudo Emperors, and among the Pseudo Emperors, only a very small number of them were acknowledged by the Heavens and Earth, and those who had the qualifications to use the power of the Heavens and Earth were all Great Emperors.
The current him, including Zhan Wuhen and the others, was a group of such existences.
As for Wu Kuang, perhaps tens of thousands of years ago, he had pushed open a crack in the Open Heaven Stage gate and walked in front of everyone.
Yang Kai even suspected that the Passing of Time Great Emperor had reached the Open Heaven Stage! Otherwise, how could he have crushed the Great Demon God to pieces?
“In the past, I was ignorant and didn’t know that there was a world beyond the Heavens, but now that I know there are so many wonderful things on the Outer Universe, how can this king not admire them? Although the Star Boundary is big, it is only a small part of this vast universe, it cannot trap a Dragon like you and me!”
Yang Kai was flattered and quickly waved his hand, “I don’t dare to stand shoulder to shoulder with Sir.”
Wu Kuang said, “It’s not that you don’t dare, it’s just that you don’t care!” He also knew that his reputation wasn’t very good, so he sneered, “This king pursues the Martial Dao, so this so-called Cultivation Technique is nothing more than a means. As long as it’s useful, it doesn’t matter what it is. As for the others, this king doesn’t care about a bunch of old farts, but you, a junior, are quite interesting. Your aptitude can not be said to be the top, yet you managed to reach the Great Emperor Realm at such a young age. In the future, I’m afraid your future will be limitless. Although this king has swallowed Mo Sheng and obtained a higher starting point than you, in the future, I really don’t have the confidence to walk ahead of you.”
“You don’t have any confidence?” Yang Kai was surprised.
“There are always so many monstrous geniuses in this world…” Wu Kuang chuckled and pointed a giant finger at him, “You are one of them.”
“I’ll take that as a compliment,” Yang Kai shrugged, thinking to himself that Wu Kuang was a proud and arrogant man who had never praised anyone before.
“I’ll wait for you on the Outer Universe, I hope we’ll meet again one day.” Saying so, Wu Kuang stood up, his several hundred zhang tall body blocking out the sunlight above Yang Kai.
“Wait!” Yang Kai quickly raised his hand and looked up at him, “What about the Lower Planes Star Field you refined? Do you want to take them with you? What about my Heng Luo Star Field?”
Wu Kuang chuckled, “The reason I refined it before was to find a way out, but now that the road is under my feet, the Star Fields is no longer useful. This king has already handed it over to that old bastard Duan Hongchen, so you can ask him.”
“That’s good,” Yang Kai calmed down, not needing to confirm anything with Duan Hongchen. Since Wu Kuang had said so, it was likely he wouldn’t lie to him.
“Boy, work hard.” Wu Kuang lowered his head and smiled before taking a step forward. Although his body looked heavy and clumsy, every step he took seemed to form an invisible staircase that allowed him to climb.
Not long after, the huge figure disappeared from Yang Kai’s sight.
Yang Kai watched him leave with a smile on his face.
“Left?” Duan Hongchen’s voice suddenly rang out from beside him.
Yang Kai turned his head and saw that the Great Emperors of the Star Boundary, the two Dragon Clan Elders, and Zhang Ruoxi were all present. Even Xiao Xiao had run over, but at this moment, Grand Mountain Xiao Xiao was only a foot tall and was sitting on Zhang Ruoxi’s shoulder.
