Yang Kai was a bit embarrassed by his glare. How could he not know that he had repeatedly cheated and had been discovered by the Three Thousand World Tree? In this Unaging Land, many Holy Medicines had developed sentience, Pu Baixiong and Little Mushroom were all like this, let alone the Three Thousand World Tree.
It was just that he hadn’t revealed itself before, but Yang Kai had repeatedly used the Mysterious Boundary Bead to exploit the World Fruit’s loophole, allowing him to harvest more than a dozen fruits on his own. Even if the World Tree had three thousand fruits, it still wouldn’t be able to tolerate such greed. If Yang Kai continued like this, he didn’t know how many fruits would remain.
Therefore, after sensing Yang Kai’s aura again, it immediately sent him and his dozen or so subordinates out of the World Fruit, not giving them a chance to gain experience at all, and also sent them off the mountain, cutting off their ideas.
The roots danced and once again lashed towards Yang Kai with great force, not to take his life but to send him down the mountain.
Yang Kai used his Space Laws to dodge again.
Although he had harvested quite a few World Fruits and obtained more than a dozen of them, including two Mid Rank ones, he hadn’t seen a single High Rank World Fruit, so how could he give up?
High Rank World Fruits could help a High Rank Open Heaven Stage cultivator break through one level. If he could reach the Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage in the future, he could use the High Rank World Fruit to directly reach the Eighth Order!
How many Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivators were there in the Cave Heaven Paradise? At this level, they would definitely be overlords. At that time, not only would he be able to establish himself in these three thousand worlds, he would also be able to accomplish great things.
While dodging, Yang Kai shamelessly begged, “Old Tree, please calm your anger, one more time, one last time!”
The World Tree’s expression became even angrier, ignoring him as its roots danced even more wildly, but with Yang Kai’s Space Laws, his figure became erratic, so how could he possibly hit it?
In a fit of anger, more than a dozen roots burst out from the ground and formed an inescapable net around Yang Kai.
At the foot of the mountain, Lang Qingshan and the others looked up and were dumbfounded.
The cunning face man's mouth twitched as he said, “This World Tree must have been driven mad by our Lord.”
Lang Qingshan muttered, “Not good, Sir is in danger.”
As he spoke, he immediately rushed up the mountain, a dozen or so people following closely behind him, dodging the mist and lightning as they trudged along.
On top of the mountain peak, Yang Kai moved left and right, but the World Tree’s dozen or so roots were like a dozen long whips, sealing off the world and greatly reducing the space he could move.
In a moment of inattentiveness, he was struck by a root and felt a great force rush towards his throat.
Yang Kai wrapped his arms around the root and swallowed his tumbling vitality before grinning cheekily, “Can’t we just do it once? Old Tree, let me enter that fruit.”
Although he had not come to investigate the grade of that world just now, he was certain that it was definitely not a Low Rank World Fruit, but a Mid Rank one. There was a small chance it was a High Rank one!
If he could successfully negotiate with the Three Thousand World Tree, he would at least be able to obtain the World Fruit.
The Three Thousand World Tree acted as if it hadn’t heard him, waving its roots several times, but it was unable to shake Yang Kai off. In a fit of anger, the dozen or so roots lashed out towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai couldn’t help letting out a muffled groan, but after just three breaths, he felt like he couldn’t hold on any longer. Although this World Tree didn’t have any intention of killing him, these roots were still quite uncomfortable.
Helpless, he could only shout, “Dragon Transformation!”
His figure suddenly expanded, transforming into a half dragon with dragon horns growing out of his head, his hands transforming into dragon claws, and his nostrils spewing out two dragon breaths. His entire body was covered in dragon scales, each of which was covered with a natural pattern. The dragon scales were solid and thick, and his dragon beard fluttered as he stood atop the mountain peak. Although he wasn’t as tall as the World Tree, he wasn’t far off.
In the Great Ruins Boundary, he had swallowed countless Dragon Blood Pills, allowing his Dragon Transformation physique to faintly show signs of transforming into a true Dragon Race, making him much stronger than before.
Pa, pa, pa, pa. The dozen or so roots continued to hit Yang Kai’s back, causing a series of loud bangs.
However, this degree of resistance was still within acceptable limits. The Dragon Transformation Body’s defense was much stronger than a human’s.
Yang Kai grinned as he looked towards the World Tree and said, “Old Tree, this is your last chance. Let me try again and don't interfere!” He couldn’t forget about the World Fruit just now!
As he spoke, he wrapped the root in his hand around his waist and quickly circled it a few times, clearly showing his unwillingness to give up.
The World Tree’s attacks became more violent, causing even Yang Kai’s Dragon Transformation body to be unable to withstand it. Dragon scales flew across his back as blood flowed out.
However, Yang Kai’s regenerative ability was incomparably strong. The Wood Element energy in his Dao Seal circulated, stimulating his Dragon Blood and healing his wounds.
After a full incense stick’s worth of time, the attacks of the three thousand world tree suddenly ceased and the old face on the tree sighed heavily.
Seeing this, Yang Kai was overjoyed, “Old Tree, you agree?”
The Three Thousand World Tree stared at him in disgust before a root flew towards him.
Yang Kai smiled awkwardly, “Old Tree, why are you doing this? Such an attack on me… uh…”
Before he could finish his sentence, the root he had been holding in his hand suddenly broke and Yang Kai was struck by a powerful force, his body falling uncontrollably down the mountain!
In mid-air, Yang Kai was flabbergasted. He had never imagined that the attitude of the Three Thousand World Tree would be so unyielding that it would rather cut off a root than allow him to remain on this mountain peak.
With a loud bang, Yang Kai landed heavily on the ground and quickly got up. Looking at the root in his hand, he was speechless.
Although this root had been voluntarily abandoned by the Three Thousand World Tree, it showed no signs of withering and instead seemed to be full of vitality. Yang Kai’s heart jumped as he quickly stuffed it into the Mysterious Small World.
When he looked up again, the fog on the mountain had risen and the lightning was surging. Soon, he could no longer see what was happening inside.
Unwilling to give up, Yang Kai threw himself into the fog and only managed to hold on for a few breaths before running back. The fog was too terrifying and was formed from countless tiny insects. Even with his Dragon Transformation physique, he was unable to withstand it. In this short time, his body was covered in blood and his flesh and blood essence had been drained.
Numerous figures flashed past them, it was Lang Qingshan and the others who had been sent out. Although they were covered in dust, their lives weren’t in any danger. This should be the result of the World Tree’s protection, otherwise with the current situation on the mountain, they wouldn’t have been able to resist.
Turning around to look at Yang Kai’s bruised face and bloody body, they couldn’t help being shocked.
Moreover, this was the first time they had seen Yang Kai use the Dragon Transformation Technique, so they couldn’t help feeling shocked. Only now did Lang Qingshan and the others realize that Yang Kai actually possessed the Dragon Clan’s bloodline, and judging from his appearance, this bloodline was quite extraordinary.
Yang Kai lowered his head to look at them, his expression fierce as he was angered by the Three Thousand World Tree. This old tree was too stubborn and would rather give up a root than give them one last chance.
Pondering for a moment, Yang Kai opened his mouth and roared, “Old Tree, everyone has a chance to enter the World Fruit once in their lifetime. Now that you’ve sealed off this mountain, is that mean you won’t allow us to enter again? There are dozens of people on my side who want to enter, you can’t take away their qualifications, that’s unfair!”
As he spoke, he raised his hand and released the remaining people hiding in the Mysterious Small World.
Lang Qingshan and the others were all extremely embarrassed. They had used Yang Kai’s cheating methods to obtain more than a dozen World Fruits, but now Yang Kai was actually speaking to the World Tree about fairness.
Yang Kai continued, “If worse comes to worst, I won’t go in. But you have to let them in, right?”
As soon as his voice fell, Yang Kai’s expression suddenly changed as he listened carefully. In the next moment, a figure suddenly rushed out from the thick fog and screamed.
Yang Kai stretched out his hand and grabbed the man, staring at him in shock, “Brother Meng?”
The one who had emerged from the fog was none other than Meng Hong.
Meng Hong’s face was still filled with shock, but when he saw a giant dragon head aimed at him, he couldn’t help being startled, but after seeing the appearance of the dragon head, he hesitantly asked, “Brother Yang?”
Yang Kai nodded and put him down before transforming back into his human form and asking, “Brother Meng, why did you… come out at this time?”
The timing of Meng Hong’s appearance was too coincidental, causing Yang Kai to feel that something was wrong.
Meng Hong said, “I don’t know, I was training in that world when a force suddenly repelled me. Eh… is this the World Fruit?”
As he spoke, he suddenly looked towards his palm and discovered that he had somehow obtained a World Fruit.
Yang Kai’s eyes flashed and he couldn’t help feeling speechless.
He knew that the reason Meng Hong was able to withdraw halfway and even obtain a World Fruit for free was entirely because of the World Tree. He must have sensed the relationship between Meng Hong and himself, so he directly sent Meng Hong out.
Realizing this, Yang Kai sighed slightly, knowing that it was impossible for him to enter the World Fruit again.
The Three Thousand World Tree would rather cut off one of its roots and give Meng Hong to Yang Kai, and it even give him a fruit for free, just so Yang Kai could give up completely!
Meng Hong’s luck was quite good. The World Fruit in his hand was a Mid Rank World Fruit. He had been wandering in that world for several years now, fighting alone, not knowing how to break free. He had thought he was dead for sure, but who would have thought such a twist would occur?
To be honest, he still couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
The two Great Moon Province disciples stepped forward and briefly explained what had happened. Only then did Meng Hong learn that the reason he had been able to escape so easily was because of Yang Kai and the Three Thousand World Tree entanglement.
He couldn’t help but laugh. He had originally wanted to give Yang Kai a World Fruit to repay his debt, but who would have thought that in the end, he would be rescued by Yang Kai again.
“Brother Yang, please accept this World Fruit,” Meng Hong handed the fruit to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “Brother Meng, I’ve already gained quite a lot, and when you break through to the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage in the future, you’ll be able to use this item, so there’s no need to give it to me.”
