The closer they got to the full moon, the more intense the chill became. As the moonlight poured down, the Wind Spirits slowed down and the frost on their bodies became thicker.
But even so, it was unable to stop the Wind Spirits from approaching the full moon.
Yang Kai’s Small Universe's full moon was the manifestation of his Water Element Divine Ability, so he was not sure what would happen if these Wind Spirits approached it.
Not daring to take the risk, seeing that even the Moonlight Water was unable to stop these Wind Spirits, he steeled his heart and shouted, “Golden Crow Sun Casting!”
The cold full moon suddenly sank, accompanied by the cries of the Golden Crow, a great sun suddenly appeared, and within that great sun, three-legged strange birds could be seen playing.
The power of ice was instantly replaced by an incomparably hot aura, and before the Wind Spirits could stop themselves, the scorching Golden Crow True Fire had already burst out from the sun.
A strange sound rang out, accompanied by the unique whistling of the Wind Spirits. The bodies of the Wind Spirits that were rushing towards the sky suddenly burst into pitch-black Golden Crow True Fire, enveloping them in flames.
The Golden Crow True Fire incinerated everything, even these Wind Spirits were unable to resist it.
Seeing this, Yang Kai was overjoyed.
Looking around, the twenty Wind Spirits seemed to have transformed into twenty fireballs at this moment. As the Golden Crow True Fire continued to burn, the Wind Spirits’ bodies began to emit black smoke.
Yang Kai’s brow wrinkled as he instinctively felt that this black smoke wasn’t anything good. This is his Small Universe World, so if there was even the slightest abnormality, he would be able to clearly sense it. When this black smoke dissipated, he couldn’t help feeling like he had eaten something bad.
Seemingly sensing the ferociousness of the Golden Crow’s Sun Casting, the Wind Spirits instinctively fled, but now that they had been contaminated by the Golden Crow True Fire, how could they escape?
What’s more, Yang Kai had already sealed off this area, so no matter how they attacked, they could not escape the burning Golden Crow True Fire.
Yang Kai pushed his strength and increased the power of the Golden Crow Sun Casting.
The black smoke emitting from these Wind Spirits grew more, and in contrast, the color of these Wind Spirits gradually became dim, their bodies becoming transparent.
The first Wind Spirit had been besieged by more than a hundred Open Heaven Stage masters and was already severely damaged. At this moment, under the burning of the Golden Crow True Fire, it suddenly scattered and disappeared without a trace.
Yang Kai raised his brow. As this Wind Spirit collapsed, he felt a surge of World Force pour into his Small Universe, greatly alleviating the damage he had suffered.
What was going on? Yang Kai didn’t have time to think about it, nor did he have time to think about it. Yang Kai continued to control the Golden Crow Sun Casting while simultaneously increasing his strength to seal off the surrounding area so that the Wind Spirits wouldn’t escape and cause more damage to his Small Universe.
The power of the Golden Crow Sun Casting is enormous, and with Yang Kai’s current cultivation, even if it is the High Rank Open Heaven, it wouldn’t be easy for them to endure for too long.
However, these Wind Spirits were extremely resilient. The sun hung high in the sky, constantly burning their bodies. Although Yang Kai could sense that they were constantly weakening and would soon be reduced to ashes like the first Wind Spirit, he still needed some time.
Two days later, Yang Kai, who had been paying close attention to the movements of these Wind Spirits, suddenly turned his attention to one of them. At that moment, with a muffled bang, the Wind Spirit’s nearly transparent body suddenly exploded and disappeared.
Just like last time, when this Wind Spirit disappeared, an extremely pure World Force poured into his Small Universe.
Bang bang bang…
A series of explosions rang out as one Wind Spirit after another exploded, and in that instant, more than half of them disappeared.
The World Force pouring into his Small Universe was like a surging ocean, causing Yang Kai to feel a sense of disbelief.
After another day, the last Wind Spirit was burned to death by the Golden Crow True Fire, and when its body collapsed, Yang Kai let out a long sigh.
Nearly twenty Wind Spirits, each of them leaving behind a large amount of World Force after they disappeared, and the most precious thing was that this World Force was extremely pure and didn’t have many impurities. In other words, anyone could absorb it and transform it into their own foundation.
Yang Kai’s foundation had been greatly damaged by the Wind Spirits, but now, not only had he made up for his losses, but he had also gained unimaginable benefits.
Yang Kai was not in a hurry to leave his Small Universe. Instead, he focused his attention and used his Small Universe's power to refine the World Force left behind by the dead Wind Spirits to strengthen his Small Universe's foundation.
Time slowly passed.
After more than ten days, on Shattered Spirit Province, Hua Yong, who had been paying close attention to Yang Kai’s movements, suddenly said, “He’s awake, Sect Master is awake.”
Since Yang Kai had led them to Shattered Spirit Province half a month ago, he had been sitting here without moving. Everyone had seen him draw the Wind Spirits into his Small Universe, but no one knew what had happened after that. Everyone had experienced just how strange and powerful the Wind Spirits were, so the Proprietress and the others were naturally worried.
Hearing Hua Yong’s shout, the Proprietress quickly turned to look at Yang Kai and saw him slowly open his eyes.
Before she could open her mouth to ask, Yang Kai suddenly let out a long breath and a stream of black smoke poured out from his mouth.
The Proprietress was startled, but after probing it with her Divine Sense, she was unable to determine what this black smoke was. It seemed to have the aura of the Wind Spirit, but it was not completely the same.
This black smoke was released from the bodies of the Wind Spirits when they were burned by the Golden Crow True Fire. Yang Kai didn’t know what it was, but he instinctively felt that keeping this black smoke inside his Small Universe was not a good thing.
These days, he had been refining the World Force left behind by the Wind Spirits after their deaths while also trying to find a way to dispel the black smoke. Now, he had finally found some results.
The Small Universe was his Small Universe after all, so he could clearly feel the presence of the foreign body inside him, so it wasn’t difficult for him to dispel them.
“Sorry for the wait,” Yang Kai stood up and said.
The Proprietress asked with concern, “How is it?”
“I’m fine,” Yang Kai slowly shook his head.
Not only was he fine, but he had also gained a lot. He didn’t know what those Wind Spirits were, but after being burned by the Golden Crow True Fire, they had brought him great benefits.
Yang Kai could clearly feel that the Small Universe's foundation in his body had grown stronger. Just this harvest alone was worth at least a hundred years of hard work.
This was quite a pleasant surprise.
The Proprietress was somewhat skeptical, but after observing his expression and seeing that his complexion was quite good and his aura was even more stable than before, she relaxed slightly.
Suddenly, Yang Kai turned his head in a certain direction and narrowed his eyes, asking in surprise, “What is that?”
In the distance, there seemed to be a giant whirlwind that spanned tens of thousands of kilometers. The whirlwind constantly spun, causing the surrounding space to distort.
The scene was extremely terrifying.
The Proprietress walked over to him and looked in that direction, “That should be the Source of the Astral Wind.”
Yang Kai was shocked. Without seeing it with his own eyes, it was difficult for him to believe that they had rushed out from that place. That strange Wind Spirit should also have been born there.
“This wind…” Yang Kai’s brow wrinkled as a thoughtful look appeared on his face. For some unknown reason, he could feel a strange intent from the giant whirlwind.
“This is a Divine Ability!” The Proprietress said.
Yang Kai stared at her in shock.
The Proprietress said bitterly, “There’s no need to doubt it. Before you woke up, we all observed it for a long time and felt that it really was a Divine Ability Secret Technique.”
Yang Kai’s throat couldn’t help feeling a bit dry, “Divine Ability Secret Technique? Doesn’t that mean, someone used it?”
Mao Zhe took a step forward and smiled bitterly, “I don’t know which ancient Great Expert activated this Divine Ability, but even after countless years, it still possesses such power.”
Yang Kai’s jaw dropped, still unable to believe what he was seeing, but the truth was right in front of him, so he had no choice but to believe it.
If the Proprietress hadn’t warned him, he wouldn’t have been able to figure it out. Now that the Proprietress had said so, he could also tell that this was indeed a Divine Ability Secret Technique. He didn’t know who had used it, nor when, but it had always been there, releasing its power!
This Divine Ability Secret Technique just so happened to cover the exit connecting Shadowless Cave Heaven to the outside world, so when everyone left Shadowless Cave Heaven, they fell into the range of this Divine Ability. [Read on Hoogsway]
This Divine Ability should be a Divine Ability targeted at the Open Heaven Stage's Small Universe. If one was not careful, they would be swept away by the invading astral winds!
These astral winds were not the astral winds that swept into Shadowless Cave Heaven, but rather the endless giant whirlwinds that were wreaking havoc within the Small Universe!
If he were to accidentally hit by such a Divine Ability… Yang Kai shuddered just thinking about it.
If such a whirlwind were to wreak havoc in his Small Universe, Yang Kai estimated he wouldn’t be able to last more than ten breaths.
The aftershocks of this Divine Ability were endless, and over the years, a strange existence like the Wind Spirit had emerged from the whirlwind.
Combined with the situation after the Wind Spirits died, Yang Kai vaguely guessed that the World Force that had been swept away by the astral winds had not disappeared, but was instead swept back into this whirlwind.
These Wind Spirits were probably the combination of the World Force and the concept of this Divine Ability. From ancient times until now, countless Open Heaven Stage cultivators had accidentally fallen into this whirlwind and died, their World Force being swallowed by this Wind Spirit.
Putting everything else aside, Shadowless Cave Heaven, as a Universe Cave Heaven that had been left behind after the Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage's death, should not have been so desolate. It was only because of the Shadowless Astral Wind’s invasion once a month that the World Force was constantly flowing away, and the many Open Heaven Stage masters in Shadowless Cave Heaven had all encountered it.
The World Force that had been swept away was swept back into this whirlwind and became nourishment for the Wind Spirit.
It could be said that each Wind Spirit contained a vast World Force.
