A few days later, with a loud rumbling sound, Zhan Wuhen flew over from the distance. In his hand was a giant dragon-like creature, its Spiritual Energy overwhelming.
It was a Spiritual Vein.
It was unknown where Zhan Wuhen had extracted it from, but he flew in front of the World Tree and smashed it down.
The Spiritual Vein collapsed, transforming into a surging World Energy that swept out in all directions like a storm.
This storm, however, only lasted for a few dozen breaths before it was completely swallowed up by the World Tree’s Subtree. With the help of this Spiritual Vein, the World Tree’s Subtree suddenly shot up several dozen zhangs.
The Ice Feather Great Emperor also drew out a Spiritual Vein…
Beast Martial Great Emperor was the same…
With so many Spiritual Veins smashed down, the World Tree’s Subtree grew rapidly.
Yang Kai was originally happily watching, but as he watched, he felt that something was wrong. The World Tree’s growth had not stopped at all.
Chu Tianji was also worried, “Void, is this World Tree going to drain the Star Boundary?”
Although the World Tree’s growth had stabilized the Star Boundary and its shattered laws were clearly showing signs of being repaired, the amount of World Energy it consumed was simply too terrifying. If this continued, it was likely that in just a few years, the World Energy in the entire Star Boundary would be completely devoured.
At that time, so what if the World Laws in the Star Boundary were stable? Without World Energy, how could cultivators cultivate?
“I don’t think so.” Yang Kai was also a little uncertain. If that was the case, then he would be shooting himself in the foot. He had planted the World Tree’s Subtree in order to save the Star Boundary, but if he were to change the Star Boundary’s state because of this, the gains would not make up for the losses.
At this moment, the World Tree's Subtree in front of him was already a thousand zhang tall, and the barren mountain that had once been here had long since disappeared, crushed into nothingness by the roots of the World Tree. Even from a great distance, one could still see the outline of this giant tree, and the World Tree’s roots had already spread out for a million kilometers.
This million kilometers radius was clearly different from the rest of the Star Boundary. It was currently being transformed by an inexplicable and mysterious force, causing the shattered laws to radiate new energy.
Time passed, and a month later, the World Tree's Subtree had grown to a height of ten thousand zhang.
The giant tree’s crown covered a radius of several hundred thousand kilometers, and the towering giant tree was like a guardian protecting this world, its roots extending far and wide, almost covering the entire area of the Star Boundary.
At this point, the World Tree’s growth suddenly slowed.
Yang Kai carefully examined it and found that the World Tree had not stopped growing, it was just invisible to the naked eye. It was no longer growing, nor had it grown any larger, but the roots that extended underground were still spreading out at an extremely fast speed.
At the same time, from the outside world, a trace of a mysterious force was being drawn in by the World Tree and absorbed by it, condensing pure World Energy through every leaf on the giant tree’s crown and nourishing the water.
“Star Energy!” Zhan Wuhen raised his brow.
The senses of the Great Emperors were extremely sharp, so even the slightest change in the World Tree couldn’t escape their detection. The strange power that came from beyond the Heavens was clearly the Star Energy of the vast universe.
Yang Kai let out a sigh of relief.
From the current situation, the Star Boundary could be considered stable, so there was no need to worry about the World Tree draining the World Energy of the Star Boundary. The World Tree would naturally absorb the power of the stars and continue to grow. When the day came when its roots could cover the entire Star Boundary, the World Laws of the Star Boundary would be completely restored, perhaps even obtaining unimaginable benefits.
The World Energy that had been consumed because of its growth could also be replenished through the Star Energy it absorbed. One day, the World Energy it consumed would be recovered ten times, a hundred times, or even more. At that time, what kind of changes would occur to the Star Boundary?
The World Tree was indeed very mysterious!
Yang Kai clicked his tongue in wonder as he turned his head and saw that the complexions of the various Great Emperors had indeed improved, even their auras had become much more stable.
The Star Boundary had benefited greatly, and the Great Emperors who shared the same fate as the Star Boundary had also benefited greatly. Even their control over the Star Boundary had increased slightly.
Beneath the World Tree, more than ten figures stood quietly, silently observing.
Yang Kai’s heart suddenly skipped a beat as he took out the communication treasure he had with Lu Xue. After sensing it, a look of surprise appeared on his face, but he quickly recovered and said to the Great Emperors, “I’ll be back soon.”
His figure flickered and disappeared.
A moment later, outside the Star Boundary, Yang Kai’s figure appeared. Looking up, he saw a giant creature with its back towards him, striding towards the distance.
Who else could it be but the Giant Spiritual God, A' Da?
His movements weren’t fast, and could even be said to be extremely slow, but every step he took covered an astonishing distance. In just a few steps, only a small black dot remained.
Lu Xue flew over and reported, “Sir, just now, this Giant Spiritual God suddenly stood up and left without saying anything.”
“I understand,” Yang Kai nodded. A' Da had been attracted by the Star Boundary's dying aura and had stayed in the periphery of the Star Boundary for several decades, waiting for it to die. However, this time, he had brought back the World Tree’s Subtree and pulled the Star Boundary back sfrom the brink of death. A' Da had obviously felt something and left.
On the other hand, A' Da’s departure had indirectly confirmed the future of the Star Boundary! If the Star Boundary was still on the verge of death, it was impossible for A' Da to simply leave.
This was a good thing!
Yang Kai’s figure flickered as he sped away.
Not long after, he caught up to A' Da and shouted, “A' Da!”
A' Da looked down at him and found that it was him. Without stopping, he reached out and held him on his palm, grinning, “A' Da is leaving!”
“Where are you going?” Yang Kai asked.
A' Da was stunned for a moment before patting his stomach, “A' Da is hungry, go find something to eat.”
“Stay here, I’ll give you something to eat!” Yang Kai said as he tossed out a World Bead.
A' Da opened his mouth and swallowed, chewing as he said, “I can’t eat enough, A' Da wants to eat more!”
Yang Kai blushed with shame. He had originally wanted to keep A’ Da here, after all, with such a huge monster guarding the periphery of the Star Boundary, no one would have the courage to try to take over the Star Boundary. However, A’ Da had been here for so many years, and although he had eaten a lot of World Beads, to him, they were nothing more than snacks before a meal. What he wanted to eat was still the real world.
This was something Yang Kai simply couldn’t satisfy.
“Can we meet again?” Yang Kai shouted.
A' Da chuckled.
Yang Kai sighed and shouted again, “Open your mouth!”
“Ah…” A' Da opened his mouth wide, as if he could swallow a star.
Dozens of World Beads flew out and disappeared into A' Da’s mouth.
With a cracking sound, A' Da’s expression became joyful.
Yang Kai had already jumped down from his palm and stood in the air, watching him leave. Soon, there was no trace of A’ Da in his vision, and he didn’t know if he would be able to see him again in this life. The Giant Spiritual God race had a peaceful temperament and had no fixed residence. They chased after the dead Universe Worlds, and with their extraordinary talent, they could smell the scent of death from the world far away. They would travel many years in advance and quietly wait.
However, the vastness of this universe made it difficult for them to meet again in the future.
When Yang Kai returned to the World Tree, the various Great Emperors were still standing beneath it.
Mo Huang glanced at him and asked, “What plans do you have in the future?”
Now that the crisis of the Star Boundary had been resolved, the mental burden that had been weighing on everyone’s hearts for the past few decades had been lifted, so there was no need to worry about the survival of the Star Boundary. It was time to consider the future.
Yang Kai pondered for a moment before replying, “I was just about to discuss this matter with everyone. I seized a Spirit Province in the Outer Universe and called it the Void Land. Right now, there are many things I need to do, so I would like to ask everyone to return with me and build the Void Land together. It’s not just you, but I also want to take away anyone in the Star Boundary who has reached the Third Order Emperor Realm as long as they are willing.”
The Third Order Emperor Realm already had the qualifications to enter the Outer Universe, but with their own strength, they were unable to cross the void.
As for those below the Third Order Emperor Realm, if they were willing, Yang Kai could naturally take them with him. The Void Land was currently lacking in manpower, so although there were many outsiders helping them, they were not as reliable as his family.
Moreover, in order to develop the Void Land, absorbing fresh blood was essential.
Hearing this, Mo Huang said, “In the past, we didn’t know how vast the road ahead was, but now that we know, we naturally want to experience more spectacular sights. It’s just that… if we all leave, who will protect this vast Star Boundary? If a powerful enemy attacks, what will we do?”
“I’ll stay,” Zhan Wuhen said solemnly.
Duan Hongchen grinned, “I can also stay.”
Seeing that the other Great Emperors were about to speak up, Yang Kai raised his hand and stopped them, “There’s no need for all of you to act like this, I will arrange a way out for the Star Boundary. I won’t hide it from all of you, this time I didn’t come back alone, I brought three of my subordinates, all of whom have the power of Open Heaven, so it shouldn’t be a problem for me to leave one of them behind to guard the Star boundary. Moreover, the Star Boundary is located in a relatively remote region, and there are only a few Universe Worlds here. Under normal circumstances, no one will come here.”
It had taken him a great deal of effort to find the Star Boundary. Which Open Heaven Stage cultivator would come to the Star Boundary for no reason? This place didn’t have much attraction to Open Heaven Stage cultivators. If not for this, the Star Boundary wouldn’t have no records of Open Heaven Stage cultivators for so many years.
The Great Emperors glanced at each other before nodding.
Since Yang Kai had even thought of this point, they naturally had nothing to worry about.
Soon, a piece of news spread throughout the world. The Void Great Emperor wanted to lead the Third Order Emperor Realm to the Outer Universe. Anyone who wanted to go can gather at the High Heaven Palace, and anyone below the Third Order Emperor Realm could also go to High Heaven Palace to register and will be chosen is appropriate.
In the entire Star Boundary, there were originally quite a few people who had reached the Third Order Emperor Realm, but a number of them had died during the war between the two worlds. Now, there were only about thirty of them, and if these people were to remain in the Star Boundary, they would not have much room to develop, so they were bound to be taken to the Void Land.
However, below the Third Order Emperor Realm, it was impossible to calculate. Naturally, these people couldn’t all be brought to the Void Land, so they could only choose a few.
