Now that everything was on track, all that was left was to wait.
It was time to return to the Star Boundary.
As long as the Star Boundary’s hidden dangers were not resolved, Yang Kai would not be able to rest easy. Counting the time, it had been about fifteen years since he left the Star Boundary. Before he left, the Star Boundary was not very stable, and the World Laws had been severely damaged. Although he and the other Great Emperors had thought of a way to delay the collapse of the Star Boundary, it was impossible to solve the root of the problem. Perhaps at some point, these methods would fail.
After such a long time, he didn’t know what was happening in the Star Boundary.
In any case, the construction of the Void Land didn’t matter as long as Yue He stayed behind to cooperate with Immeasurable Grandmaster.
By the time he returned from the Star Boundary, the Nine Layers Heaven Array had already been set up, and it will be similar on time.
Having made up his mind, he immediately summoned Yue He and whispered to her about this matter.
Yue He didn’t try to stop him and simply said, “If Young Master wants to leave, it’s fine. If you bring Chen Tian Fei or Lu Xue along, with one of them protecting you, I’ll feel more at ease.”
In the end, Yang Kai was still only an Emperor Realm, so shuttling through these 3000 Worlds would definitely be dangerous. If he had a Fourth Order Open Heaven Stage guardian, it would save him a lot of trouble.
Yang Kai smiled, “There’s no need. The Void Land is currently lacking manpower, Fatty and Lu Xue are both important talents. With them here, the progress here will be faster. I’m only going to handle some private matters, so I don’t need them.”
Yue He naturally didn’t agree, immediately suggesting that if it's impossible to take Chen Tian Fei and Lu Xue with him, she will go with him.
This was even more impossible. She still had to stay behind and coordinate with Immeasurable Grandmaster to set up the Spirit Array. Anyone could leave, but she couldn’t.
The two of them argued for a long time, but Yue He didn’t back down at all, worried about Yang Kai leaving alone, so Yang Kai could only nod in agreement.
Yue He decided to let Lu Xue follow Yang Kai. After all, she was a woman and was more meticulous, so it would be easier to take care of him if she followed Yang Kai.
“Let Guo Ziyan follow,” Yue He added.
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing, “He’s only a Second Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, what’s the point of him following?”
Lu Xue is a Fourth Grade after all, so if he was in danger, she could still be of some use, but Guo Ziyan’s Open Heaven Stage was a bit too low.
Yue He snorted, “In any case, I don’t care. If you take Lu Xue with you, you must take Guo Ziyan with you!”
Yang Kai looked at her for a moment before suddenly coming to a realization and nodding, “Fine, let’s go with the two of them.”
He sighed in his heart. The Void Land was a place where people were needed, so it was a bit inappropriate for him to take two Open Heaven Stage cultivators with him, but there was nothing he could do. Unable to persuade Yue He, he could only agree.
Before leaving, Yang Kai took out a fruit and handed it to Yue He.
Yue He received it and frowned slightly, “This is…” Under her perception, she could actually feel a rich World Force from this fruit.
Yue He’s beautiful eyes widened as she cried out, “This is a World Fruit?”
In any case, she is a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator and had obviously heard of the World Fruit before, but shouldn’t this kind of Divine Treasure only exist in legends? How could she have imagined that she would one day see it with her own eyes?
“This is a Mid Rank World Fruit. After I leave, find some time to refine it, it will be very beneficial to you,” Yang Kai said.
He had a total of sixteen World Fruits in his possession, but only three of them were Mid Rank. Mid Rank World Fruits were undoubtedly the most suitable for a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator. Consuming them and refining their medicinal efficacies would allow one to directly advance to the Sixth Order. As for Fourth Order and Third Order, the fruit could also be consumed, but the benefits they could obtain would be much smaller. As for Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivators, even if they consumed them, they would have no effect.
“This was obtained from the Unaging Land?” Yue He asked in surprise.
She was well aware of what Yang Kai had gained in the Great Ruins Boundary, but she had never heard of him obtaining World Fruit, so the only possibility was that he obtained it in the Unaging Land.
Yang Kai nodded.
“Young Master, this thing is too precious, I can’t accept it.” Yue He pushed the World Fruit back.
Yang Kai said, “If I tell you to use it, then use it. I have plenty of these things.”
“Liar!” Yue He curled her lips, “Although I’ve never seen World Fruit before, I know that everyone only has one chance to obtain World Fruit from the World Fruit's Tree… Why are there so many?”
As she spoke, Yue He stared at Yang Kai’s palm in surprise. There were several more World Fruits there.
Yang Kai grinned, “Do you believe me now? If your Cultivation rise, it’s also helpful to the Void Land. Unfortunately, most of the World Fruits I have are Low Rank, so they don’t have much value. If they were all Mid Rank, I could quickly create a batch of Mid Rank Open Heaven.”
Yue He asked curiously, “How can a Low Rank World Fruit have no value?”
Yang Kai said, “A Low Rank World Fruit can at most allow a cultivator to break through to the Third Order Open Heaven Stage, what value does it have?”
Yue He couldn’t help laughing, “Young Master, it’s not right for you to think this way. The Low Rank World Fruit can only allow a cultivator to break through to the Third Order Open Heaven Stage at most, but it has increased his growth limit. Such a good thing cannot be bought with money.”
“What do you mean?” Yang Kai raised his brow.
Yue He raised the Mid Rank World Fruit in her hand and said, “Let me put it this way. My achievement is Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage, so my limit in the future will be Seventh Order, because if I consume too many Open Heaven Pills, it will have no effect on me, but if I consume this World Fruit, I will be able to advance to the Sixth Order directly, and my starting point will no longer be Fifth Order, but Sixth Order, and my limit will be Eighth Order!”
“It can be calculated like that?” Yang Kai was surprised.
“A Low Rank World Fruit allows a Low Rank Open Heaven to advance one level directly. In terms of value alone, it’s not very high, but increasing the limit of one's growth limit is only a dream.”
“So that’s how it is!” Yang Kai suddenly understood. It turned out that he had always underestimated the value of the Low Rank World Fruit, causing him to think that the dozen or so fruits in his hands were useless.
But now, it seemed that these dozen fruits were also treasures.
This made him overjoyed, as if he had just picked up a large sum of money.
Gripping the World Fruit in her hand, Yue He pursed her lips and said, “I’ll accept this fruit. Thank you, Young Master.”
Before, she didn’t know that Yang Kai had more World Fruits and couldn’t bear to consume such a precious thing, but now that she knew, she no longer refused. Just as Yang Kai had said, her breakthrough to the Sixth Order was extremely beneficial to the entire Void Land, and she herself had been accumulating the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage for hundreds of years. Once she broke through to the Sixth Order, this accumulation would settle down again, and it wouldn’t be long before she broke through to the Seventh Order.
Seventh Order, that's a High Rank Open Heaven!
After everything was arranged, Yang Kai summoned Lu Xue and Guo Ziyan and soared into the sky.
Outside the Void Land, Lu Xue released a Windmill-like artifact and the three of them entered. Under Lu Xue’s control, the Windmill carriage transformed into a streak of light and flew across the Void.
The 3000 Worlds were vast and connected to each other.
Yang Kai didn’t know exactly where the Star Boundary was located. When he bought Universe Chart in the Star City, he had been studying the location of the Star Boundary. Although he couldn’t be certain, there were three possible locations.
This time, he could only search one place at a time. Yang Kai secretly prayed that one of the three places was the right one. If all three places were wrong, he really didn’t know what to do.
Calculating the distance, the Star Boundary should not be too far from the Void Land.
This was because after he and Zhang Ruoxi had left the Star Boundary, they had encountered a Myriad Sealed Insect not long after. After being swallowed by the Myriad Sealed Insect, the two of them had separated and Yang Kai had fallen into a Great Domain. It was there that he had been tricked by Fire Spiritual Land’s Venerable Duan Hai into entering the Seven Skillful Land.
Guiding the direction inside the Windmill carriage, Lu Xue controlled her artifact and sped along.
Passing through one Great Domain after another, they encountered some dangers along the way and encountered the pursuit of some Star Beasts. The three of them were able to avoid them, but if they couldn’t, they could only fight.
After two or three months, the three of them entered a Great Domain.
Lu Xue’s voice rang out, “Sir, we’ve arrived.”
This domain was Yang Kai’s first destination for this trip. Hearing this, Yang Kai immediately walked out of the Windmill Carriage and looked around expectantly.
He was not discouraged. After all, a Great Domain was too vast, and the Star Boundary might be hidden somewhere in this region, so it was normal for him to not be able to see it.
Moreover, he came from the Star Boundary and was the Void Great Emperor recognized by the Star Boundary. If the Star Boundary was really in this Great Domain, as long as the distance between them wasn’t too far, they would be able to sense each other.
After instructing Lu Xue to continue searching the Great Domain, Yang Kai continued to scan his surroundings.
A month later, Yang Kai sighed, “Let’s go to the next place.”
The Star Boundary was not located in this Great Domain. During this one month, he had almost run all over this Great Domain and had not found anything.
Lu Xue nodded and followed Yang Kai’s directions to the next destination.
Ten days later, somewhere in the void, the dust of a great battle had settled. Lu Xue was gasping for breath, her chest heaving up and down, while Guo Ziyan had a huge wound on his waist and abdomen, almost cutting him in half.
Although Yang Kai looked completely unharmed, his face was pale and he coughed lightly, blood leaking from the corner of his mouth.
As they wandered through the void, they would encounter all kinds of dangers from time to time. This time, the trio’s luck was really bad, encountering a group of more than ten Star Flame Colt. This group of Star Beasts seemed to have gone crazy and were chasing after the three of them, unable to escape. Helpless, the three of them could only fight.
With the beast horde wiped out, the three of them suffered varying degrees of injuries, even Lu Xue’s Windmill Carriage was damaged.
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with hatred.
“Sir, we need to make a trip to the Universe Temple,” Lu Xue said as she shook the blood off the Cold Water Sword.
Yang Kai nodded, “Then let’s go.”
With the three of them in such a state, it was really unsuitable for them to continue forward. If they were to encounter any more danger, they wouldn’t be able to fight back. Fortunately, there was still Universe Temple in this Great Domain, so they could recuperate there.
Of course, the most important thing was to repair Lu Xue’s artifact. Without it, the three of them would have consumed too much energy to travel through the void.
