Yue He looked like she was facing a great enemy, making Yang Kai extremely nervous. Although he didn’t know what this Great Ruins fog was, he could guess that it wasn’t anything good.
Everyone in the Star City was frantically fleeing.
Yang Kai turned his head and his eyes narrowed as he saw that under the shroud of the Great Ruins fog, all the cultivators who had failed to escape in time had disappeared into thin air. The pink mist was like an invisible beast that swallowed all the cultivators present, making it impossible for them to resist.
Yang Kai even saw a Third Order Open Heaven Stage. Even if he tried his best, he wouldn’t be able to resist it for long.
It wasn’t just the cultivators, even the buildings in the Star City and the Spirit Province where this Star City was located were the same. The mist filled the place and the Spirit Province disappeared along with the buildings.
Three breaths later, after Yang Kai discovered the fog of the Great Ruins Fog, more than half of the Star City was gone, including everything else.
Yue He grabbed Yang Kai’s arm and desperately tried to escape. She was a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, so her strength wasn’t low. When she used her full strength, her speed was incredibly fast, but even so, she was unable to escape the pursuit of the fog.
Seeing that the fog was about to reach him, Yang Kai shouted anxiously, “Let go!”
The speed of the Great Ruins Fog was simply too fast. At this moment, Yang Kai could only rely on teleportation to escape, but Yue He was holding onto him so tightly that Yang Kai was unable to use his Space Laws.
Yue He couldn’t care less about him. Yang Kai didn’t know the strangeness of the Great Ruins fog, but she was clear about it. Sensing Yang Kai’s struggle, she silently sent a stream of energy into his body.
Yang Kai’s body went limp and he nearly vomited blood!
In this brief moment of delay, they had lost the best opportunity to escape. The pink mist of the Great Ruins Fog swept over from behind and enveloped the two of them.
The scene in front of Yang Kai’s eyes changed as he felt the world spinning around him. His entire body was filled with a pink mist, and he could no longer see anything. He couldn’t even release his Divine Sense. Just as he was feeling nervous and uneasy, he heard Yue He’s voice beside his ear.
“Don’t be afraid, the Great Ruins Fog is harmless, it won’t kill you.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai frowned. If there was no killing power, then why were all the cultivators in the Star City so terrified when they saw the Great Ruins Fog? Moreover, he had personally seen countless cultivators being swallowed by the Great Ruins Fog, could it be that none of them had died?
His body shuttled through the darkness, seemingly falling into an endless abyss.
A delicate body pressed close to him. Although he couldn’t see it, Yang Kai knew it was Yue He and secretly laughed in his heart. How could a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator have no sense of security?
However, at this moment, he was even more curious.
He didn’t know what the Great Ruins Fog was, nor did he know what would happen after being swallowed by it, but the feeling he felt now was no stranger to him, as if he was traveling to an unknown place.
Not long after, the pink mist that had been wrapped around his body disappeared and his vision cleared up. Looking around, he seemed to have arrived in another world.
This place was definitely not the same Star City as before, because the view from the left and right was vast and boundless. It was as if there were many cultivators scattered about on a plain, obviously the unlucky ones who had been swallowed by the Great Ruins Fog.
Looking up into the sky, Yang Kai frowned and saw that the sky was completely dark, as if it could collapse at any moment, giving off an oppressive feeling.
Behind him were many ruins, and judging from the shape of these buildings and some signboards, they should be from the Star City’s shops.
This was the first time Yang Kai had seen something that could even swallow some buildings, so he couldn’t help wearing a strange expression.
The cultivators who had been swallowed here all had different reactions. Some of them were excited, some of them were depressed, and some of them were cursing the heavens…
“Great Ruins Boundary!” Yue He looked around and muttered, “I didn’t expect the rumors to be true.”
“Great Ruins Boundary?” Yang Kai turned his head to look at her, only now realizing that she had been holding his arm and couldn’t help glancing down.
Yue He let go of her hand and chuckled lightly, “In the Outer Universe, there are three thousand Great Worlds, each of which is controlled by a great force, but apart from those known worlds, there are also some that are hidden in the void, such as the Great Ruins Boundary. The Great Ruins Boundary appears once every thousand years, and each time it appears, no one will be able to find its traces unless they are lucky enough to enter.”
“Opportunity?” Yang Kai raised his brow.
“It’s both an opportunity and a disaster,” Yue He turned her head and glanced at him, “The Great Ruins Boundary is mysterious and unfathomable, dissociated from the Outer Universe. If one can enter this place, it must be an opportunity.”
Yang Kai sneered. If it really was a fortuitous encounter, why did you flee in such a panic just now? How could any of the surrounding cultivators curse at the heavens?
Yue He’s expression gradually became solemn as she said in a low voice, “In the past, I only heard that when the Great Ruins Boundary appeared, the Great Ruins Fog would engulf everything in its path. Only when I saw it with my own eyes did I realize that the rumors were true.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai said thoughtfully, “From what you’ve said, it's possible to leave the Great Ruins Boundary?”
Yue He said, “Naturally, if we can’t leave, how did the rumors about the Great Ruins Boundary spread? However, you can't break out of this place, as long as we stay here for a full time, we can naturally leave.”
“How long?” Yang Kai frowned.
Hearing that the Great Ruins Boundary allowed one to leave, Yang Kai wasn’t so worried, afraid that he would be trapped here forever.
“I’m not sure. Some say it’s ten years, some say it’s twenty years, and some say it’s fifty or a hundred years, as if the time limit for each Great Ruins Boundary is different.”
Yang Kai’s expression became serious. Ten or twenty years was not a big deal, but if he were to be trapped here for fifty or a hundred years, that would be bad.
“The Great Ruins Boundary is not a good place, you must be careful,” Yue He stared at him and said solemnly, “If ten people enter here, it would be good enough if one or two of them survive.”
“Is this place very dangerous?” Yang Kai frowned.
Yue He nodded, “There are many ancient remnant beasts living here, each of them extremely powerful and capable of easily slaughtering cities and exterminating clans. Moreover… the human heart is the most dangerous.” As she spoke, she glanced at the cultivators around her.
Yang Kai nodded lightly and said, “Just now, you said that this place is a fortuitous opportunity and also a disaster. Now I understand, where is this opportunity?”
Yue He smiled lightly, “The Great Ruins Boundary opens once every thousand years and not everyone can enter it. If the Great Ruins Fog swept through the void, even if the Great Ruins Boundary opened, no one would be able to come here. As far as I know, the last time someone came to the Great Ruins Boundary was a few thousand years ago. Do you think this place is not a treasure trove?”
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s eyes lit up.
Yue He continued, “Some people found enough power here and when they left, they immediately advanced to the High Rank Open Heaven Stage. Some people even found some Great Ruins Fruit here to raise their Rank by a level. There were even some who managed to subdue ancient remnant beasts and sweep through the Three Thousand Worlds, obtaining countless benefits here. Rumor has it that the masters of Xuanyuan Cave Heaven, True Martial Cave Heaven, and Primordial Cave Heaven Chief had once come to the Great Ruins Boundary!”
Yang Kai was stunned when he heard this. He had never heard of the Great Ruins Fruit, but the effect of allowing a person’s grade to directly advance one level was simply too incredible. Yang Kai couldn’t help wondering if such a thing really existed.
Moreover, Xuanyuan Cave Heaven, True Martial Cave Heaven, and Primordial Cave Heaven are all highly ranked Cave Heavens, and their leader was at least an Eighth Order Open Heaven master. Such a character had actually come to the Great Ruins Boundary before? Was their achievements related to their experiences here?
Everything was unknown, but from Yang Kai’s observation, the only thing he could confirm was that there were indeed many opportunities in the Great Ruins Boundary, and they weren’t small either. Otherwise, why would so many cultivators look so excited?
Yue He suddenly frowned again, “The number of people who came this time… is too many. I’m afraid there has never been a time when so many people come in when the Great Ruins Boundary appeared.”
This time was also a coincidence. The Great Ruins Fog had swept across a Star City, and Yang Kai estimated that no one in the entire Star City had been able to escape and had been swallowed by the mist.
Hundreds of thousands of people from the Star City had gathered in the Great Ruins Boundary, which could be said to be the beginning of history. However, Yang Kai felt that there shouldn’t be so many people gathered here, probably because they had been scattered when they entered the Great Ruins Boundary, so there were only a few tens of thousands of people here.
Just as he was lost in thought, he suddenly heard a miserable scream.
Yang Kai was startled and turned his head, only to see a group of people gathered around a burly man holding a saber, confronting another group of people. Standing at the forefront of the group was a cultivator dressed like a servant. At this moment, his face was filled with pain as he clutched his stomach, his face filled with terror. On his stomach, there was a bloody wound with blood flowing out, obviously caused by the burly man holding a saber.
The saber-wielding man’s eyes flashed disdainfully as he roared, “I’ll say it again, get out of my way or die!”
The leader of this group of people that confronts him seemed to be the shopkeeper of a certain shop. Hearing this, his expression changed and he cupped his fists, “Everyone, we have all fallen into this crisis together, so we should support each other. Why must you hurt others so easily? My Spring Grass Hall is not without a backer, aren’t you afraid of suffering retribution in the future?”
Hearing this, the saber-wielding man sneered, “Retribution? We’ll talk about it when it’s my turn.”
Saying so, he swung his blade forward, causing the shopkeeper’s expression to change drastically as he tried to retreat, but the strength of the saber-wielding man was more than a level higher than his own, so when this blade fell from his head, it immediately split his body into two.
Seeing this, the servants standing behind the shopkeeper all cried out in fear and fled in all directions.
The saber-wielding man laughed wildly and ordered his subordinates, “Take all the Spirit Pills in this shop! Don’t leave a single one behind.”
The people behind him rushed out and rushed towards the collapsed shop, opening the broken walls and collecting the bottles of Spirit Pills.
