“Let’s see what grade it is,” Wei Jue asked Tao Rongfang.
Tao Rongfang took out the Sun's True Fire from her Space Ring and examined it carefully before saying, “Same, Fourth Grade!”
Wei Que chuckled, “Not bad.”
In just half a day’s time, he had collected two pieces of Fourt Grade Fire Element materials, and they were even Sun's True Fire, a great harvest. If he could collect a few more pieces, he could go to Star City and exchange them for materials of other attributes. Then, he could find a disciple from Great Moon Province with outstanding aptitude to cultivate a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage.
At that time, Great Moon Province would also rise along with the tide.
Seemingly having seen this beautiful future, Wei Que’s bell-like eyes flashed faintly as he said in a low voice, “I understand now, there’s nothing to explore on the surface of this Sun’s Star. All the good things are below. Junior Sister Tao, let’s split up. You lead a group of people, I’ll lead a group of people, one will provide support from above, and one will search from below. How about it?”
Tao Rongfang couldn’t wait to hand over her body and mind to him, so how could she have any objections? Nodding, she said, “We’ll do as Senior Brother says.”
After the two of them finished discussing, Wei Que took the initiative to lead the dozen or so Great Moon Province disciples into two groups, one following him and the other following Tao Rongfang.
Seeing these benefits, the group from Great Moon Province were also full of enthusiasm and immediately began their exploration.
There was a chance that there would be danger beneath the magma, so the two groups of people took turns to investigate. As Open Heaven Stage cultivators, Wei Que and Tao Rongfang naturally didn’t fear the heat of the magma, but the group of disciples below weren’t strong enough to explore the underground magma for a long time, so as long as they could maintain their speed, they wouldn’t have to worry about their lives.
Wei Que instructed everyone to prioritize their own safety. If they found anything, they would immediately inform him and Tao Rongfang, so everyone naturally nodded.
However, in the next few days, the Great Moon Province’s side came up empty-handed. Although they searched very carefully, they didn’t find any traces of Sun's True Fire. It had to be said that the first day was really quite lucky.
During this time, he encountered people from other forces and found that everyone seemed to have the same idea, all of them searching for hidden opportunities in the underground magma.
The two of them met face to face and didn’t offend each other, allowing them to live in harmony.
Now that everyone’s attention was focused on the Sun’s True Fire and the Sun’s True Gold, no one was willing to easily clash with others.
After a few more days, Great Moon Province finally lively again.
A ball of Sun's True Fire hidden in the magma was found, and Tao Rongfang, who was leading a group of disciples, spent a great deal of effort to collect it.
As time passed, the places that had not been searched became fewer. Although this Sun Star was extremely large, the number of forces that had come this time was not small. Everyone had come from different directions to explore this Sun Star, and after several days, they had basically explored more than half of the area, and the remaining areas were rapidly shrinking.
Wei Que became slightly anxious. In his opinion, if he could obtain seven portions of Sun's True Fire this time, it would be perfect. Only seven portions of Sun's True Fire would be enough for Great Moon Province to go to a Star City to exchange for enough materials, allowing Great Moon Province to create a Fourth Grade Open Heaven Stage.
Now that he only had three, it was far from enough. After all, there weren’t many opportunities to casually collect Fourth Grade Open Heaven materials, and he had only encountered this once in his life.
On this day, half of Great Moon Province’s disciples were led by Wei Que into the magma to investigate, and Yang Kai was one of them.
Traveling through the magma was a wonderful experience. The temperature of the surrounding magma was terrifyingly high, and anyone would need to constantly activate their Divine Sense to protect themselves. Moreover, because of this special environment, their Divine Sense couldn’t extend too far, so the range of their search wasn’t very large.
As such, before reaching the Open HEaven Stage, the amount of time they could endure in the magma wasn’t too long, only an hour at most. After an hour, they would have to quickly go up and rest while someone else came down.
These past few days, everyone from Great Moon Province had also worked together in this manner.
Under the magma, Yang Kai’s figure moved unhurriedly as he used his Divine Sense to scan his surroundings, but he found nothing. To be honest, he wasn’t very interested in this Sun's True Fire, but since he had been assigned to Wei Que’s place, he could only follow the crowd. It would be best if he could discover something, but if he couldn’t, it didn’t matter.
Seeing that it was almost time, Yang Kai was about to go up when his heart suddenly skipped a beat and he turned his head towards a certain direction.
Beneath the magma, there was a fiery red color and nothing could be seen, but the Divine Sense that spread out obviously felt something.
Had he really found it? Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing. Since he had found it, he couldn’t let it go. Without any hesitation, he rushed towards it. Before he even arrived, he had already activated his Space Laws to bind the surrounding space and simultaneously summoned his Six Directions Wishful Bag to cover it.
For an ordinary Emperor Realm master, even if it was Meng Hong and the others, it would still be difficult for them to collect Sun's True Fire on their own, unless they had some kind of powerful artifact, such as Du Rufeng’s Heaven-wrapping Net. However, Great Moon Province’s disciples obviously didn’t have such a condition, so the Sun's True Fire they found last time was forced to the surface and allowed the higher-ups to collect it.
However, Yang Kai had the Six Directions Wishful Bag in his possession, so he naturally didn’t need to do so. The Six Directions Wishful Bag was something that could even forcibly absorb an Open HEaven Stage cultivator, let alone a small ball of Sun's True Fire. Even if Yang Kai’s current strength was insufficient to fully utilize its power, it still wouldn’t be able to erase the power of this artifact.
Originally, Yang Kai thought he could easily collect the Sun's True Fire, but when he took out the Six Directions Wishful Bag, Yang Kai suddenly felt a powerful force coming from the other side. His Space Laws were suddenly broken free, and the Sun's True Fire hidden in the magma emitted a dazzling light as it flew underground.
“Fifth Grade!” Yang Kai raised his brow. When this Sun's True Fire was quietly hidden in the magma, he hadn’t noticed it, but when it moved, Yang Kai immediately felt something was wrong.
This ball of Sun True Fire was clearly different from the three balls the Great Moon Province had collected. The Fire Element was much purer and had undoubtedly surpassed the Fourth Order.
A fifth grade material was worth one or two million Open Heaven Pills!
Yang Kai wasn’t interested in the Fourth Grade, but he was interested in the Fifth Grade.
Seeing the Sun’s True Fire fly down, Yang Kai didn’t hesitate and immediately chased after it, forming a claw with his hand as the Space Laws spread out.
The Sun's True Fire froze for a moment before quickly breaking free from the Space Laws and continuing to descend.
After failing twice, Yang Kai became furious and naturally chased after it.
If it were anyone else, they would naturally rush up first, otherwise, if they went too deep and exhausted their energy, they would not be able to come up again. If they did, they would die. However, Yang Kai had the Six Directions Wishful Bag and the Mysterious Boundary Bead, so he wasn’t afraid of these things. If it really didn’t work, he could just hide inside the Mysterious Boundary Bead and recover for a while.
Along the way, Yang Kai had no idea where he had gone.
A moment later, on the ground, figures emerged from the mouth of the magma, all of them pale, obviously exhausted. Wei Que was the last to rush out, Tao Rongfang asked, “Did you not obtain anything?”
Wei Que shook his head, somewhat discouraged, “It seems the situation is quite different from what I expected.”
During his first harvest, he had thought that this place was filled with Sun's True Fire, but after several days, he had only managed to find one more. Only then did he realize that he had taken things too lightly. Even on Sun Star, Sun's True Fire was not something that could be casually produced.
Tao Rongfang nodded, “Senior Brother, take them to rest for a while, we’ll find another place.”
Wei Que nodded, “That’s the only way.”
Asun suddenly looked around and asked, “Where’s Senior Brother Yang?” She didn’t see Yang Kai among the crowd.
With her reminder, everyone realized that one person was missing.
Wei Que’s brow wrinkled as he looked towards the disciples who had gone down with him and asked, “Did any of you see Yang Kai down there?”
A female disciple replied, “Reporting to Martial Uncle, Junior Brother Yang and I passed by each other below.”
Wei Que asked, “How long has it been?”
The female disciple thought for a moment before replying, “About ten minutes.”
Wei Que nodded and said, “It won’t be long, I’ll just…” He wanted to say that he would wait a bit longer, but seeing the worried looks on the faces of Asun and Die You, he quickly changed his mind and said, “Wait here, I’ll go down and look for him!”
Saying so, he plunged down again.
Old Fang and Die You looked at each other and saw the worry in each other’s eyes. Old Fang said, “I’ll try to contact him.”
Saying so, he took out the communication artifact he usually used with Yang Kai and poured his Divine Sense into it. After waiting for a moment, there was no response. Die You also tried, but there was still no response.
After a while, Wei Que emerged from the ground with an ugly expression.
Die You quickly asked, “Senior Wei, have you found him?” In truth, there was no need to ask. If he had found him, he would definitely have been brought along by Wei Que. Now that Wei Que had come up alone, it was obvious what had happened.
Wei Que slowly shook his head.
Die You’s face paled…
Old Fang also became anxious, “How could we not find him? He went down with everyone.”
Asun almost burst into tears as she shook Tao Rongfang’s arm and said, “Honored Master, Senior Brother Yang is a very good person, don’t let anything happen to him.”
Tao Rongfang patted the back of her hand and comforted her, “Don’t worry, with your Martial Uncle Wei and I here, we won’t let anything happen to Yang Kai.”
Wei Que nodded lightly and said, “Little brats, Yang Kai is nowhere to be seen, he may have encountered some kind of trouble down below. I need you to follow me down again and search carefully.”
“We will obey Martial Uncle’s decree!” Everyone agreed.
Wei Que said in a low voice, “There may be some kind of danger down there that we don’t know about, so don’t spread out too much. I want each of you to maintain contact with your fellow disciples at all times. Once you notice something is wrong, immediately contact me.”
