A simple Sun True Fire was equivalent to picking up hundreds of thousands of Open Heaven Pills. Wei Que smiled so widely that his mouth nearly split open.
The key was that for a force like Great Moon Province, a Fourth Grade material didn’t just represent the Open Heaven Pill. With a Fourth Grade material, one would have a chance to create a Fourth Grade Open Heaven Stage and increase the overall strength of Great Moon Province.
As such, the value of materials above Fourth Grade couldn’t be calculated according to Die You’s previous methods.
Wei Que’s laughter hadn’t even died down when two figures suddenly appeared in front of him. These two were both men wearing light blue robes, and their appearances were quite similar, most likely related by blood.
Behind the two of them, a large group of cultivators also appeared one after another, obviously from the same force as these two men. However, the ones who arrived later were obviously not Open HEaven Stage masters, but rather like Yang Kai and the others who had condensed their Dao Seals.
As soon as the two men appeared, they stared at the Sun's True Fire in Wei Que’s hand. Wei Que put away the container with a flip of his hand and glanced over at the newcomer, “So it’s the Ge Clan Brothers from Fixed Wind Province. What business do you have here?”
“Great Moon Province’s Wei Que!” One of the two brothers in the lead wore a gloomy expression, obviously recognizing Wei Que.
The other man chuckled and said, “Brother Wei, this matter isn’t quite right.”
Wei Que frowned, “What do you mean by that? I don’t even know what you’re talking about.”
The man said, “Brother Wei should know that the Sun's True Fire in your hand was first discovered by our Fixed Wind Province, but when we were collecting it, something went wrong and it escaped. I didn’t expect Brother Wei to take advantage of it.”
Tao Rongfang said, “What a joke, Ge Yan, you said that this was first discovered by your Fived Wind Province, what evidence do you have?”
The man called Ge Yan said, “What evidence do we need? The best evidence we have is that we chased them all the way here. If not for that, how could we have come here?”
Tao Rongfang snorted, “Does this count as evidence?”
Wei Que stretched out his hand to stop Tao Rongfang before turning to the Ge Clan Brothers with a smile and saying, “Even if you were the ones who discovered the Sun's True Fire first, now that it has entered my hands, it is mine. This ownerless object is naturally owned by someone capable, do you two still want to snatch it back? If that’s the case, there’s no harm in doing so. Let’s have a showdown here. Whoever wins will get the Sun's True Fire, what do you think?”
As soon as these words came out, the Ge Clan Brothers frowned and glanced at each other before one of them spoke up, “Brother Wei, there are many forces of various sizes on this Sun Star, and we’ve only just started exploring, so there’s no need for us to get into a conflict, right?”
“Then what nonsense are you spouting?” Wei Que arrogantly patted his Space Ring, “How about this, the Sun’s True Fire is right here. Call it and see if it responds to you. If it does, then it’s yours. If it doesn’t, then it’s mine.”
The other man said, “Brother Wei, there’s no need to be so overbearing. If we really fight, us two brothers may not be afraid of you, we just don’t want others to sit back and reap the benefits. Although the thing is in your hands, us brothers have been leading a group of disciples for half a day. Even if we don’t have any contributions, we have worked hard. Brother Wei, if you can give us some benefits, we don’t need the Sun's True Fire.”
“You still want benefits!” Wei Que laughed, “In short, the thing is in my hands, if you want it, come and snatch it!” Waving his hand, he shouted, “Little rabbits, someone wants to snatch our things, what should we do?”
The group of Great Moon Province disciples shouted in unison, “Kill, kill, kill!”
Not only did they shout, but they also displayed their might, each of them exuding a fierce aura.
Yang Kai, Old Fang, and the others were all dumbstruck. They could only sigh at how one was marked by the company one kept. Wei Que had a valiant look on his face, but the disciples he brought out were also so valiant.
On the opposite side, the Ge Clan Brothers’ faces immediately went black. After weighing the pros and cons for a moment, Ge Yan coldly snorted, “Wei Que, just you wait! One day, I’ll make you spit out everything you have!”
Waving his hand, he said, “Let’s go.”
It wasn’t that they were afraid of Great Moon Province, but just as he had said, their strengths were almost the same and both had two Open Heaven Stage masters. If they really fought, it was hard to say who would win and who would lose, but once a conflict broke out, both sides would definitely suffer heavy casualties. At that time, they would have to leave the stage early and forget about obtaining any benefits here. Wei Que was crazy, so they weren’t willing to accompany him.
The group from Fixed Wind Province quickly left, but Wei Que didn’t say anything. After the people from Fixed Wind Province disappeared, he gave Tao Rongfang a mysterious look.
Tao Rongfang was puzzled and whispered, “What’s wrong?”
Wei Que stretched out his hand and pointed towards the ground, “There’s something down there!”
“There’s more?” Tao Rongfang was surprised at first, but soon became happy, “Sun True Fire?”
Wei Jue nodded, “I saw it when I went down just now, but I didn’t have time to collect it. I’ll go down again. Junior Sister, take this group of brats and prepare to receive them, just in case!”
“Good, Senior Brother, be careful!” Tao Rongfang warned.
“Don’t worry!” Wei Que laughed and disappeared into the magma.
On the ground, under Tao Rongfang’s orders, a group of Great Moon Province disciples quickly sealed off the surrounding several dozen kilometers, each of them forming a Formation.
Yang Kai and the others had just arrived and weren’t familiar with the Great Moon Continent’s Formation, so they naturally couldn’t participate, but under Tao Rongfang’s arrangement, the four of them each guarded a corner.
From time to time, magma would erupt and giant bubbles would burst, releasing an unpleasant smell. The people from Great Moon Province all waited silently, but after a long time, they didn’t hear any movements from below.
Tao Rongfang frowned slightly, faintly feeling that Wei Que must have encountered some kind of trouble down below. She wanted to go and investigate, but she was worried about the group of disciples up above. Without the Open Heaven Stage master here, their safety would not be guaranteed.
Just as she was panicking, she suddenly saw a large magma mouth below her suddenly bulge as a faint aura of power spread out.
Tao Rongfang’s expression became serious as she shouted, “Be careful!”
Before she could finish her sentence, a ball of light suddenly shot out from the mouth of the magma, wrapped in a scorching hot aura, and flew off to the side. Immediately after this light, Wei Que’s figure shot up into the sky and shouted, “Don’t let it escape!”
As soon as this Sun's True Fire rushed out, the group of Great Moon Province disciples began to move, forming a series of hand seals as the power of Heaven and Earth sealing enveloped a large area.
Tao Rongfang raised her slender jade palm and lightly slapped it towards the Sun's True Fire.
The Sun's True Fire seemed to have a mind of its own as it dodged this palm strike, narrowly avoiding Tao Rongfang’s attack as it flew towards a Great Moon Province disciple behind her.
The Great Moon Province disciple’s expression changed slightly as he raised his hand and summoned a treasure mirror, shooting out a beam of profound light towards the Sun's True Fire.
The rapidly approaching Sun's True Fire was suddenly enveloped by this mysterious light and stopped in mid-air. This mirror actually had the ability to stabilize itself.
Seeing this scene, the Great Moon Province disciple let out a sigh of relief, but before he could recover, the profound light wrapped around the Sun's True Fire suddenly shattered, and a flame that seemed capable of incinerating everything in the world instantly appeared in front of him, causing his face to twist and his expression to change greatly.
“Condense!” At this critical moment, Yang Kai let out a low shout as his Space Laws began to fluctuate and the Sun's True Fire froze in midair for the second time.
However, Yang Kai’s expression didn’t show any signs of relaxation. Faintly sensing that the Sun's True Fire could break free at any moment, he shouted, “Senior Tao!”
Tao Rongfang had already arrived in front of the disciple with a transparent container in her hand. It looked similar to the one Wei Que had taken out before, and she was pouring the Sun's True Fire into it.
With a flash of light, Tao Rongfang stored the Sun's True Fire into a container and sealed it with a spell before turning to look at the disciple, “Are you alright?”
The Great Moon Province disciple’s face paled slightly, probably greatly frightened by the scene just now, his pupils dilating as he shook his head, “I’m fine, thank you Martial Aunt for her concern.”
Tao Rongfang nodded slightly.
At this moment, Wei Que also flashed over and cursed, “Damn it, I almost let it escape, this thing has become refined.” If it weren’t for the fact that Great Moon Province had already set up a trap, this Sun's True Fire might have escaped.
Turning to look at Yang Kai, Wei Que said, “Little brat, you did well.”
Although the Great Moon Province’s disciple shouldn’t have lost his life after being hit by the Sun’s True Fire, injuries were unavoidable. It was also thanks to Yang Kai’s strength at the last moment that the others were able to save him in time.
Yang Kai politely replied, “Senior is too kind.”
Wei Que pondered for a moment before asking, “Did you comprehend the Dao of Space?”
“Yes!” Yang Kai nodded. Since he had chosen to act, he wasn’t afraid of others knowing.
“Incredible!” Wei Que’s eyes lit up, “The Dao of Space is profound and obscure, this Wei has only heard of it but has never seen it before. This time, I’ve truly broadened my horizons.”
Tao Rongfang also smiled happily, “Our Great Moon Province has really picked up a treasure this time.” Her attitude of already treating Yang Kai as a Great Moon Province disciple which made it difficult for Yang Kai to refute.
Wei Que patted Yang Kai’s shoulder and said, “Work hard, one day when you break through to Open Heaven, this Outer Universe is big, but you can go anywhere.”
“Yes!” Yang Kai replied respectfully.
Wei Que then turned to look at the Great Moon Province disciple, “Little brat, why aren’t you thanking your Junior Brother Yang? You don’t have any manners at all, who taught you that?”
Only then did the Great Moon Province’s disciple wake up from his reverie and walk over to Yang Kai, bowing respectfully, “Junior Brother Yang, thank you for saving me just now!”
“This Senior Brother is too polite, everyone should help each other, it’s my duty,” Yang Kai returned the gesture.
However, after this incident, Yang Kai found that the group of Great Moon Province disciples were looking at him with a much more amiable and approving gaze.
This wasn’t surprising. To the people of Great Moon Province, Yang Kai and the others weren’t too familiar with each other, and since they had never gone through life and death together, it was naturally difficult for them to agree with each other. However, things were different now, everyone’s feelings were nurtured in this way.
