A hundred years, to the Open Heaven Stage cultivator like Yue He, it was like the snap of a finger, but to Yang Kai, it was different.
The situation in the Star Boundary was unstable, the world was in danger, and the Laws had collapsed. If he didn’t find the World Tree to repair the world soon, the Star Boundary would collapse sooner or later.
How long would a hundred years be? Would the Star Boundary be able to persist until that day?
“Young Master, what are you thinking about?” Yue He saw Yang Kai’s expression change and couldn’t help asking.
Yang Kai frowned at her and said helplessly, “You’re still an Open Heaven Stage cultivator, and you’re also a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. Why are you degrading yourself like this?”
Yue He asked curiously, “How am I degrading myself?”
Yang Kai shook his head, “I’m just a mere Emperor Realm, how could I possibly be worthy of you calling me Young Master?” She had also said this to the old man surnamed Kang before.
Yue He pursed her lips and smiled, “Are you talking about this? What’s wrong with me being happy to do so?”
“As you wish!” Yang Kai didn’t want to dwell on this topic any longer and hesitated for a moment before saying, “I have something I want to ask you.”
Yue He straightened her face, “Speak.”
“The Yin-Yang + Five Elements in the Dao Seal, will it not affect the Dao Seal if it is used frequently?”
Yue He asked in surprise, “What kind of effect is that? Since it’s your power, it will always be yours.” Suddenly, she frowned, “Don’t tell me you don’t even know this. Did Lan Youruo not tell you?”
Yang Kai replied, “I’ve only been here for less than a year, so I’m not too clear about many things. The Proprietress doesn’t care about my cultivation.”
Thinking about it, since it was the power of the Dao Seal, what did it matter if he used it? Previously, he had often used the Wood Element to help the Fire Spirit Fruit Tree grow.
Now that he thought about it, his thinking had fallen into a mistake.
Yue He’s small mouth opened slightly in shock, “You’ve only been here for a year?”
“Is there a problem?”
Yue He slowly shook her head, “I thought you had followed Lan Youruo for a long time, so that’s how it is. How many forces have you condensed?”
There was nothing to hide, and since he wanted to ask for guidance, Yang Kai naturally told the truth, “Two types, Wood and Fire Element Force.”
Yue He said, “The Yin-Yang + Five Elements has its own power. The Wood Element’s vitality is abundant and is suitable for healing and recuperation. The Fire Element’s power is violent and hot, suitable for attacking. The Gold Element's power is extremely sharp, and if it is enhanced by some kind of artifact, it can also increase the power of the artifact. The Earth Element’s power is thick, its defensive power is astonishing, the Water Element is invisible, it can heal and defend, and as for the Yin and Yang Attributes, they also have their own uses. In a battle under Open Heaven, it is basically a contest of the strength and control of the Yin-Yang + Five Elements.”
Yang Kai wore a thoughtful expression and nodded, “I understand!”
Yue He said, “Try hitting my palm!”
Saying so, a layer of yellow light suddenly appeared on the surface of her body. Within this light, the Earth Element energy was extremely condensed. Obviously, Yue He had used the power of the Dao Seal to form a protective barrier.
Yang Kai casually struck out with his palm, wanting to test out this kind of combat method, so he didn’t hold back and instead struck out with his palm, causing his palm to turn red and emit a scorching heat.
With a loud bang, Yue He’s body trembled and a visible ripple appeared on the surface of her body, violently sinking down. Not only that, but Yang Kai’s palm also sank in and the solid barrier seemed to be on the verge of shattering.
Fortunately, Yang Kai immediately withdrew his palm.
Yue He’s beautiful eyes widened as she stared at Yang Kai in shock, “What grade of Fire Element did you condense?”
“What?” Yang Kai looked at her.
Yue He muttered, “Like I said just now, in a battle under Open Heaven, the strength and control of one’s Yin-Yang + Five Elements are the deciding factors. I am condensing a Fifth-Order Earth Element power, and with this kind of power, it is very difficult for any force under the Fifth Order to pose any threat to me, unless it is a long period of attacks, but you nearly broke my defense with a single palm strike… Could it be that you condensed a Sixth-Order Fire Element? No, even a Sixth Order Fire Element cannot have such power, could it be… a Seventh Grade!”
Saying so, Yue He reached out and covered her red lips, her beautiful eyes trembling.
Yang Kai was also stunned. He hadn’t expected that Yue He would be able to come up with such a conclusion after just a casual test. Although the inference is wrong, the Golden Crow Fire was definitely not just a Seventh Grade!
“Damn it!” Yue He’s face was ashen, “Lan Youruo is crazy, she actually dares to do this!”
He didn’t know why, but her face was pale as she suddenly stood up and clenched her fists tightly.
“What does that have to do with the Proprietress?” Yang Kai frowned.
Yue He grit her teeth and said, “Could it be that woman didn’t help you condense your Fire Element?” Yang Kai had also said before that he had only been here for a year or so in the Outer Universe, so what kind of ability did he have to find such a High Grade Open Heaven material?
A Seventh Grade material was worth hundreds of millions of Open Heaven Pills! She didn’t think Yang Kai had such wealth, and this kind of thing couldn’t be bought with money, unless the Proprietress helped him.
It was only natural for her to have such a guess, but she didn’t know that Yang Kai had such an opportunity.
Yang Kai didn’t want to explain any further, so he asked curiously, “So what? Isn’t it said that the higher the grade, the more powerful one’s future achievements will be?”
“You don’t understand!” Yue He slowly shook her head and suddenly asked, “What about your Wood Element? Is it also a Seventh Grade?”
Yang Kai thought to himself, how could he know what grade it was? In any case, the grade of the Eternal Tree should be very high.
Seeing his reaction, Yue He’s face became even paler as she squatted down and stared at him solemnly, “You absolutely must not let others know that you have condensed the power of Seventh Grade. Promise me!”
She had a pleading look on her face, as if she was asking for something important.
Yang Kai’s expression became strange. Was this woman crazy? His relationship with her wasn’t any better. If it weren’t for Yue He’s performance just now, he would have long since parted ways with this woman. To speak to him in such a tone at this moment, Yang Kai couldn’t get used to it.
Yue He also reacted, her face turning slightly red as she brushed her hair behind her ear and said, “I know there’s some misunderstanding between us and you won’t believe me, but I definitely won’t harm you…”
After hesitating for a moment, she continued, “There was once a person who was shockingly talented and was able to suppress everyone else. That person was also like you, condensing the power of a Seventh Grade forces. In all three thousand worlds, he was invincible under the Open Heaven. Even if it was a Low Rank Open Heaven, he could still fight evenly, but in the end, he died.”
“How did he die?” Yang Kai frowned.
A trace of sadness flashed across Yue He’s eyes, “The tallest tree in the forest will be destroyed by the wind. And that Lan Youruo, do you know that she also had a chance to break through to the Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage directly?”
“I've heard of it.”
“Then do you know why she only reached the Sixth Order?” Yue He sneered lightly.
Yang Kai shook his head, “I’ve never heard of such a thing.”
“Because if she wanted to break through to the Seventh Order, she would have died! That’s why she broke through to the Sixth Order and saved her dog life!” Yue He said coldly.
Yang Kai said unhappily, “Proprietress has done me a great favor, so you better watch your mouth!”
Yue He coldly said, “If she really wanted to help you, she wouldn’t have allowed you to condense your Seventh Grade Forces! She’s trying to harm you, what happened back then… what happened back then…” As she spoke, the corner of the woman’s eyes became moist and her voice choked.
Seeing this, Yang Kai didn’t say anything more. He could only tell that she and the Proprietress didn’t seem to be on good terms, there must have been some kind of grudge between them.
After a while, Yue He wiped the corners of her eyes and said in a desolate tone, “In any case, you must remember not to let others know about your background. Also, it’s best if you don’t use the Dragon's Secret Treasure again, otherwise, once you leave the Great Ruins Boundary, there will be no end of trouble.”
Saying so, she turned around and left.
Looking at her figure, Yang Kai was lost in thought. In fact, he didn’t need Yue He’s reminder to know that he should lay low, but Yue He had made it sound so serious, so it seemed he really had to be careful in the future. As for the Azure Dragon Spear, Yang Kai couldn’t wait for the Dragon Race to come looking for him. He had no one to rely on in the Outer Universe, so it would be good if he could contact the Dragon Race.
After Yue He left, Yang Kai tried to use his Space Force to see if he could tear space and escape from the Great Ruins Boundary.
According to Yue He, he would have to stay here for at least ten years or even a hundred years, but if he could tear open the void and escape, he wouldn’t have to stay here any longer.
Moreover, he had experienced this kind of experience before, so Yang Kai was no stranger to it.
However, after a few attempts, he discovered that the World Laws of the Great Ruins Boundary were extremely condensed, and with his current mastery of the Space Laws, he was unable to shake this world in the slightest.
Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling somewhat depressed. It seemed that unless he found another way out, he had to wait here for the time limit to arrive.
“Senior Brother Yang!” A sweet voice called out, interrupting Yang Kai’s thoughts.
Looking up, he saw Chen Yue standing in front of him, her beautiful eyes staring straight at him, her face slightly red.
Yang Kai nodded, “Is there something you need?”
Chen Yue said, “It’s nothing, I just wanted to thank Senior Brother Yang. If it weren’t for Senior Brother Yang just now, I would have died there.”
Yang Kai replied, “It’s nothing, no need to worry about it.”
Chen Yue said, “To Senior Brother, it may be a trivial matter, but to me, it is a life-saving favor. Junior Sister has no way to repay this favor. In the future, if Senior Brother has any instructions, please let me know, Yue’er will do her best.”
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “It’s too serious, Brother Meng and I are old acquaintances. Since you’re his friend, you’re also my friend. It’s only right that we help each other.”
Chen Yue asked, “How did Senior Brother and Senior Brother Meng know each other? Why haven’t I heard Senior Brother Meng mention this before?” Her eyes lit up with curiosity.
“If Junior Sister wants to know, why not ask Brother Meng? He will tell you,” Yang Kai pointed to the side.
Chen Yue turned her head and saw Meng Hong walking over from the other side. An unnatural look flashed across her face, but she still put on a smile and waited for Meng Hong to walk over, “I came to thank Senior Brother Yang.”
Meng Hong nodded, “It’s only natural, but Junior Sister, you’re still injured, so it’s not appropriate for you to move around. You should go heal first.”
Chen Yue obediently replied, “Then you guys can talk.”
