“You too?” Yang Kai was shocked, “You were also captured by the Holy Spirit?”
“The Holy Spirit that captured me is called Zhu Yan, and its strength is extraordinary. What kind of Holy Spirit captured you?”
Yang Kai muttered, “Heavenly Moon Demon Spider…”
After a brief exchange, Yang Kai learned that the last time Xu Zhen had been separated from him, he had been teleported to an unknown place, but on his way back, he had encountered Zhu Yan and was captured.
Yang Kai didn’t understand, “What do these Holy Spirits want? The Heavenly Moon Demon Spider only asked me to help her when the time came, but when I asked again, she didn’t say anything. Also, what about the Bearer you mentioned before?”
“Ah!” Xu Zhen sighed heavily, “This is the reason why I sent you a message. The Great Ruins Boundary is ancient and there are countless Holy Spirits living here, but these Holy Spirits are born here. In the Great Ruins Boundary, no matter how strong they are, it is difficult for them to display their full strength!”
Hearing this, Yang Kai nodded. The World Laws of the Great Ruins Boundary were indeed very strange. He had thought that the mist of the Great Ruins Boundary had sealed the small universe world inside the Open Heaven Stage's body, causing the Open Heaven Stage to be unable to display too much power, but now it seemed that this was not the case. Even those Holy Spirits had their strengths restricted, let alone a mere Low Rank and Mid Rank Open Heaven.
Although Zhu Jiuyin and the Leviathan Shark had fought fiercely before, they had not displayed the strength of a Holy Spirit.
On the Holy Spirit Ranking, whether it was the Heavenly Moon Demon Spider or the Leviathan Shark, both of their rankings were comparable to Mie Meng’s, but how terrifying was Mie Meng’s might? The strength displayed by Zhu Jiuyin and the Leviathan Shark was extremely difficult, giving off a feeling that they were unworthy of their name.
This should be the suppression of the World Laws of the Great Ruins Boundary, not just the mist of the Great Ruins Boundary.
Xu Zhen’s Divine Sense poured out from the communication bead and transmitted his message, “These Holy Spirits are living in a giant cage. Brother Yang, if you were them, what would you do?”
Yang Kai’s heart trembled as he thought about it carefully before replying solemnly, “Naturally, I want to escape from this cage!” The powerful will not be willing to accept the situation in front of them and would definitely think of ways to change it. The fastest way was to leave the Great Ruins Boundary.
“That’s right, the Holy Spirits are also thinking the same thing. They also want to escape from this cage and escape the suppression of the Great Ruins Boundary to restore their full might! But they are all living creatures of this world, so how could it be easy to escape?”
“Is this related to the Bearer you mentioned before?” Yang Kai asked.
“Yes!” Xu Zhen replied, “The Holy Spirits can’t leave the Great Ruins Boundary by themselves, they can only find someone to bring them out, and that person is the Bearer they are looking for!”
“Find someone to bring them out!” Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat, “Can the Holy Spirit here be brought out?”
If that was the case, wouldn’t his Six Directions Wishful Bag be a good treasure for its? When he was about to leave, he could just put Zhu Jiuyin into the bag.
“You can bring it out, but you can only bring one out every time! Moreover, you need some special opportunities,” Xu Zhen seemed to know what Yang Kai was thinking, “I know Brother Yang has a treasure that can contain living things, but that thing is useless. Even if you store the Holy Spirit inside, without that opportunity, you will be intercepted by the Great Ruins Boundary when you leave, and the reason why the Holy Spirits want to find a Bearer is to fight for the opportunity to escape the Great Ruins Boundary's shackles.”
“What is that opportunity?” Yang Kai asked hurriedly.
“I’m not too sure, I just read some records from my ancestors’ ancient books. In the past, there were some ancestors from Divine Cauldron Heaven who had fallen into the Great Ruins Boundary and fought against the rising tide of that era, leaving behind some information about this place.”
“He failed,” Xu Zhen sighed, “The glory of that era belonged to a Senior from Xuanyuan Cave Heaven. He took a Holy Spirit from the Great Ruins Boundary and that Holy Spirit became his Protector, protecting him for a thousand years before leaving Xuanyuan Cave Heaven.”
“A Protector!” Yang Kai was stunned.
“Bodyguards, protector, whatever it is,” Xu Zhen chuckled, “We’re working hard for those Holy Spirits, so we need to get some benefits from them. That Senior from Xuanyuan Cave Heaven is very powerful, and after negotiating with that Holy Spirit and having him as a Protector for a thousand years, that Holy Spirit can only agree. Brother Yang, I plan to have a good talk with this Zhu Yan here. Tsk tsk, just think about how impressive it would be to bring a Holy Spirit when we go out in the future.”
Yang Kai was speechless. How could he even bring up such a condition? If he angered them later, he wouldn’t know what death was.
“Many thanks for Brother Xu’s advice, this information is very important to me,” Yang Kai replied gratefully. He had been wondering what Zhu Jiuyin wanted him to help with and why he wanted him to improve his strength, but now that he heard Xu Zhen’s words, he understood the reason.
Presumably, the reason the Leviathan Shark had chased him all the way here was not only because he had stolen the Ice Soul Cold Moon Bead, but also because it had something to do with the Bearer. Otherwise, how could he not talk about the whereabouts of the Ice Soul Cold Moon Bead before leaving.
“None of this matters. In any case, even if I don’t tell you, you’ll find out in the future. On the other hand, you and I are both Bearer. In the future, when we fight, for the benefit of my Divine Cauldron Heaven, Brother Yang, I won’t show any mercy.”
“As for Ning Daoran and the others, they probably won’t be able to escape either. Those Holy Spirits’ eyes are quite poisonous, and they haven’t made any movements in recent years. They’re probably observing us who have fallen here to choose a suitable vessel. Now that the Zhu Yan and the Heavenly Moon Demon Spider have taken action, the other Holy Spirits will definitely not be able to sit still. I estimate that Ning Daoran and the others will all be captured by the Holy Spirits, but it’s only a matter of time before they are captured. When the time comes, there will definitely be a confrontation between us… Let’s not talk about that for now. When that Zhu Yan returns, I’ll talk to you in detail!”
Saying so, Xu Zhen cut off the connection.
Yang Kai quietly put away his communication bead and digested the information he had obtained from Xu Zhen. The Bearer, the only opportunity to break free from the shackles of the Great Ruins Boundary, and the Dao Protector were things he had never heard of before.
Right, there was also Lin Feng.
In other words, Lin Feng shouldn’t be in any danger. He was, after all, a Cave Heaven Disciple with an extraordinary background, so he was definitely one of the candidates to become a Bearer. The Leviathan Shark shouldn’t have tried to kill him, it was likely he had chosen him as a Bearer.
But now, some of the doubts in his heart could be resolved.
Zhu Jiuyin didn’t kill him, nor did she make things difficult for him. Instead, she wanted him to focus on his cultivation, obviously wanting him to help her seize the opportunity to leave.
Seizing Spirit's War? Yang Kai recalled the fierce words the Leviathan Shark had said before he left. Although he didn’t know what the Seizing Spirit's War was about, he guessed it had something to do with that opportunity.
After pondering for a moment, Yang Kai walked towards the main hall.
Inside the main hall, Zhu Jiuyin was sitting on a chair while Lu Xue and Yue He were busy at the side. The floor was filled with all kinds of miscellaneous items that the three of them had looted from Star City, most of which were women’s accessories.
Yue He stood in front of Zhu Jiuyin with a mirror in her hand while Lu Xue took the accessories from Zhu Jiuyin and looked at them carefully before tossing them aside.
When Yang Kai came in, he saw Zhu Jiuyin looking at the mirror and couldn’t help feeling speechless.
Yue He turned her head and looked at him with an aggrieved expression.
Yang Kai acted as if he hadn’t seen anything, took two steps forward, and cupped his hands, “Senior.”
Zhu Jiuyin fiddled with the head ornament on her head, not even lifting her eyes, “Why did you come here instead of cultivating?” Turning her head, she asked Yue He, “How about this?”
Yue He replied, “It’s beautiful.” It wasn’t flattery, she was indeed beautiful. After all, she was a Heavenly Moon Demon Spider with a peerless beauty.
“Too colorful.” Zhu Jiu Yin shook her head, took off her head ornament and tossed it aside.
Yang Kai took this opportunity to say, “Senior wants me to cultivate, I also want to cultivate, but unfortunately, I can’t continue.”
“Why?” Zhu Jiuyin looked up at him.
“Without a rare treasure, it is impossible to condense the power of Yin-Yang + Five Elements,” Yang Kai lowered his brow.
“Nonsense!” Zhu Jiuyin curled her lips and said, “You stole the Moon Essence of the Leviathan Shark, do you think I don’t know? That thing was made from Unaging Land and was originally a Moon's Essence Core, enough for you to refine for a long time.”
“Unaging Land? Moon's Essence Core?” Yang Kai’s body trembled, “Senior, you mean that Ice Soul Cold Moon Bead?”
“What Ice Soul Cold Moon Bead!” Zhu Jiu Yin said disdainfully, waving her hand and having Yue He stand to the side, she looked at Yang Kai and said, “This Great Ruins Boundary originally had a moon and a sun, but after a long time, the sun went out and the moon collapsed. A piece of Moon Essence fell to a barren land and was later brought out by someone and fell into the hands of the Leviathan Shark.”
Yang Kai was dumbfounded.
Although he knew that the Ice Soul Cold Moon Bead was an Innater Treasure, he had never expected it to be a Moon Essence Core. It was no wonder that the light it emitted was like moonlight, but it was also extremely cold.
Yang Kai didn’t know what kind of place the Unaging Land was, but it was likely some kind of secret place in the Great Ruins Boundary.
Calming himself down and suppressing the ecstasy in his heart, Yang Kai said, “That won’t do, Senior should know that this junior has condensed three different types of power, Wood, Fire, and Earth. The next one to condense is the Gold Element, then the Water Element. That Moon Essence is equivalent to the Water Element, this little brat still lacks a suitable Gold Element treasure. Without the Gold Element Treasure, even if he had the Water Element, he wouldn’t be able to do anything.”
“What do you mean?” Zhu Jiuyin smiled at him.
“It would be best if Senior could reward me with a piece of Gold Element Treasure. Senior has been in the Great Ruins Boundary for a long time and there are many treasures in the Great Ruins Boundary, so there should be quite a few Gold Element Treasures.”
“So you’re here to ask for some benefits,” Zhu Jiuyin smiled slightly, supporting her cheek with her hand as she looked at Yang Kai lazily, “Sure, tell me what treasure you want, if I have it, I’ll give it to you.”
“It doesn't matter what treasure it is, as long as it’s a treasure of Gold Element at Seventh Grade and above, Junior’s requirements aren’t high,” Yang Kai rubbed his hands and smiled flatteringly.
Zhu Jiu Yin’s expression immediately sank, “The requirements aren’t high, just Seventh Grade and above?”
Seeing this, Yang Kai’s heart skipped a beat as he thought to himself, Is this request too much? He mustered up his courage and nodded.
