Putting aside the friendship between Yang Kai and Asun who had escorted her to the Great Moon Province, just the Space Laws he had comprehended made Wei Que feel that this boy was a genius and wanted to recruit him into the Great Moon Province. Therefore, during this period of time, he had always regarded Yang Kai as a Great Moon Province disciple. Now that Yang Kai had encountered an accident, even without Asun’s request, Wei Que would not sit back and do nothing. As long as it was within his ability, he would naturally investigate Yang Kai’s whereabouts.
After making the necessary arrangements, the group once again went underground under Wei Que’s lead, but this time they were not searching for the Sun’s True Fire, but rather for Yang Kai.
Yang Kai’s sudden disappearance undoubtedly meant that there was some kind of unknown danger beneath the magma, so everyone was careful not to stray too far from the others.
An hour later, everyone rushed out one after another, but none of them gained anything.
Wei Que and Tao Rongfang glanced at each other, but the latter didn’t say a word and just led the other disciples to continue exploring.
Four hours later, all of the Great Moon Province’s disciples had turned pale from exhaustion, and only the two Open Heaven Stage masters were able to resist. However, Yang Kai was nowhere to be seen, so there was no need to continue.
Tao Rongfang and Wei Que looked at each other and slowly shook their heads.
Seeing this, Die You’s voice trembled slightly, “Seniors, are you not going to look for him? Yang Kai is still down there.”
Wei Que turned his head to look at her, his expression gloomy as he sighed, “It’s been too long, with his strength, he won’t be able to hold out for so long. I’m afraid… he’s probably dead.”
Die You’s already bloodless face instantly paled as her body trembled and she nearly fell to the ground. Although she knew Wei Que was right, she couldn’t accept this result.
The man who had repeatedly created miracles in the Seven Skillful Land, the man who could summon clouds and rain in front of a powerful enemy, the man who had given her the Stainless Golden Dew, the man who had led her to escape from the Seven Skillful Land, was gone just like that?
Unable to accept this, she reached out to cover her red lips, her shoulders trembling as she sobbed.
Asun’s eyes also turned red as she buried herself in Tao Rongfang’s arms and cried.
At the side, Old Fang beat his chest and stamped his feet, “The Heavens are jealous of geniuses, the Heavens are jealous of geniuses! Little Brother, it’s a pity that you died at such a young age. The Heavens are blind, why wasn’t it this Old Fang who died? Little Brother, come back, Old Fang will help you!”
Grief filled the air and the group of Great Moon Province disciples also felt uncomfortable, especially the female disciples who were silently weeping.
Wei Que raised his hand and patted Die You’s shoulder, “My condolences, we’ve done our best. Now we can only pray that the heavens will help him!” He didn’t believe these words himself, but what else could he do apart from comforting her like this? He couldn’t figure out just what kind of danger was beneath the magma that could actually cause a living person to disappear forever. They had carefully searched the area many times before, but they hadn’t found any signs of danger.
Die You wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes and said, “Senior, I still want to go down and look for him. He’s not someone who has such a short life!”
“Nonsense!” Wei Que glared at her, “Don’t you know your current situation? Rest first.”
Wei Que didn’t wait for her to finish before saying, “I don’t want to attack you, but if you insist, I can only knock you out.”
Tao Rongfang reached out to hold Die You’s hand and gently said, “Let’s take a break first, we’ll talk later.”
Die You pursed her red lips as tears flowed down her face, gently nodding.
At this moment, a sudden change occurred and a rumbling sound like thunder rolled across the ground, causing the entire Sun Star to shake. Great Moon Province’s people were startled and turned their heads to look around, only to see that the magma in the magma’s mouth on the surface of the ground had suddenly begun to boil and burst, releasing a dangerous aura.
Wei Que’s expression changed as he shouted, “Get up!”
As he spoke, he gathered his strength and flew up into the sky.
At the same time, a series of magma pillars shot out from the mouth of the magma, as if a fiery dragon had appeared, creating a terrifying scene.
Everyone flew high into the sky, their faces pale as they looked down and saw that the Sun Star below them seemed to have exploded, creating countless giant cracks and ravines as magma poured out.
Rumbling sounds rang out incessantly, shaking everyone’s eardrums.
A dazzling light came from a certain direction and a Great Moon Province disciple exclaimed, “What is that?”
Looking towards the source of the voice, everyone’s pupils shrank as they saw the phantom of a giant palace appear in the sky, towering above the clouds like a mirage.
However, even though it was just a phantom image, it still gave off a majestic and ancient feeling. It was as if this palace had traversed hundreds of millions of years, crossing the river of history from a distant era.
There was actually a palace on Sun Star!
Wei Que cried out, “Golden Crow Divine Palace!”
It had long been rumored that Sun Star not only had an extremely high grade material like Sun's True Gold on it, but it also had something like Golden Crow Divine Palace. The reason the Sun’s flames on Sun Star were about to extinguish was because the Golden Crow was about to die!
However, the rumors were only rumors. Most people would believe that there was Sus's True Gold here, but nine out of ten would not believe that there was a Golden Crow Divine Palace here, while the remaining one would be skeptical.
However, at this moment, a palace had actually appeared on Sun Star. What other explanation could there be other than the Golden Crow Divine Palace?
Tao Rongfang’s beautiful eyes also widened, “The rumors are true?”
Wei Que’s expression changed as he faintly felt that the development of this matter had exceeded his expectations. If it was just the Sun's True Gold, the forces of several nearby large domain could still control it and prevent news from spreading, allowing the benefits to remain in these large domain. But now, even the rumoured Golden Crow Divine Palace had appeared, so this news could no longer be sealed.
At that time, the people from the 36 Cave Heaven and 72 Paradise would come to investigate!
At that time, how could a third class force like Great Moon Province obtain any benefits? Even those second class forces with Mid Rank Open Heaven Stage masters would have to step aside.
So if he wanted to reap some benefits, he had to do so as soon as possible. At the very least, he had to obtain some benefits before the news spread.
As these thoughts flashed through his mind, Wei Que immediately made a decision, “Meng Hong!”
“Disciple is here!” Meng Hong stepped forward.
“Take your Junior Brothers and Sisters and leave this place.”
Meng Hong was stunned for a moment before quickly coming to his senses and cupping his hands, “Yes! Then we’ll wait for Martial Uncle and Martial Aunt outside.”
Wei Que shook his head, “No, you can go to the First Inn and wait for your Martial Aunt Tao and me. Then, ask the First Inn to send a message to the Chief to have him and the other Elders quickly come here.”
Meng Hong said seriously, “Disciple understands.”
After arranging everything, Wei Que turned to Tao Rongfang then said, “Let’s go!”
Saying so, he transformed into a streak of light and flew off into the distance.
Tao Rongfang reminded Asun, “Little Sun’er, follow Senior Brother Meng and be careful.”
Asun nodded, “So is Master!”
Tao Rongfang didn’t say anything else and chased after Wei Que.
As soon as the two Open Heaven Stage masters left, the disciples of Great Moon Province immediately lost their sense of security. Everyone turned to look at Meng Hong, who said, “You’ve all heard the orders of these two Martial Uncle and Martial Aunt. Now that the Golden Crow Divine Palace have appear, this place is about to fall into chaos. It’s more important for us to hurry to The First Inn. Follow me!”
Die You said, “Senior Brother Meng, I want to stay.”
Old Fang also stood up, “I also want to stay.”
Asun said, “Me too.”
“You…” Meng Hong stared at the three of them, trying his best to put on the airs of a Senior Brother, “Did you not hear what the two Martial Uncle and Martial Aunt just said? Now that we have lost the protection of our Martial Uncle and Martial Aunt, what if we encounter some kind of enemy?”
Die You looked down silently.
Old Fang said, “Senior Brother Meng, please calm down. We’re currently not disciples of Great Moon Province, so I don’t think anyone will come looking for trouble with us. We just want to… find Brother Yang again. At the very least, if he is no longer alive, we must see his corpse.”
Asun nodded vigorously.
Meng Hong’s face sank, “Must you do this?”
Old Fang cupped his fists and said, “Senior Brother Meng, please forgive us. If it wasn’t for Brother Yang, I’m afraid the few of us would still be suffering in the Seven Skillful Land. He is our benefactor, and now that he is in trouble, we cannot just sit back and watch.”
Meng Hong let out a long sigh and struggled for a moment before gritting his teeth, “I can't with you.” Reaching out to one of the disciples, he said, “Junior Brother Liu, quickly go to the First Inn and ask the First Inn to send a message to the headquarter. Be careful on the way.”
The disciple surnamed Liu cupped his hands, “Yes.” Saying so, he immediately flew off into the sky.
Meng Hong looked at everyone again and said, “Rest for two hours, we’ll search for half a day. After half a day, regardless of whether we find anything, we must leave this place.”
Old Fang was overjoyed, “Thank you Senior Brother Meng.”
Die You also quickly thanked him. Although she didn’t want to trouble him, with so many people here, she couldn’t care less.
Meng Hong shook his head and sighed, “All of you, remember this. For today’s matter, if anyone dares to speak a single word to the two Martial Uncle and Martial Aunt, don’t call me Senior Brother in the future.” This was a violation of Wei Que’s orders, so naturally he was afraid.
The group of disciples quickly said, “We won’t say, we won’t say.”
Everyone once again descended to the ground and began recuperating. Fortunately, after the strange movements of the Sun Star just now, they were able to settle down, otherwise they wouldn’t even be able to find a place to rest.
At the same time, in a secret passage underground, Yang Kai looked around blankly.
He had been chasing after the Fifth Order Sun's True Fire for a long time and had failed several times, only to find an opportunity to use the Six Directions Wishful Bag to absorb it. Before he could rejoice, he felt a powerful force sucking him in, as if he had fallen into a whirlpool. By the time he regained his senses, he was already here.
There was actually such a place beneath the Sun Star? What kind of place was this?
The tunnel was very spacious, and the light was not dim. It didn’t look like it was naturally formed, but rather man-made. The walls and floor of the tunnel were covered in fiery red things, and the entire tunnel was filled with pure Fire Element energy.
