In the Void Land, in the Wood Spirit Province, mountain ranges were stacked up and strange stones were piled up. On a Spirit Peak, Yang Kai sat cross-legged and stared at another Spirit Peak a hundred kilometers away.
He had been sitting here for more than two months.
With these two Spirit Peaks as the center, a radius of several hundred kilometers had been marked as a forbidden zone and no one was allowed to approach.
A stream of light flew over and landed beside Yang Kai, wrapped in a fragrant wind. It was Yue He.
Exchanging a glance, Yang Kai nodded slightly while Yue He stood quietly beside him, glancing into the distance before whispering, “Young Master, how is the situation?”
“For the time being, there shouldn’t be any big problems. We just need to see when Senior Iron Blood will be able to completely refine the Yang Element Resource. As long as he completely refines it, he will be able to create a new world in his body,” Pausing for a moment, he asked again, “Has everyone been arranged?”
Yue He replied, “Everything has been arranged. Second Manager will immediately bring them here.”
Yang Kai nodded.
Two months ago, the Iron Blood Great Emperor had received his last set of Sixth Grade Yang Element resource and was preparing to break through to the Open Heaven Stage. Yang Kai had also made many preparations for this and had specially found many Open Heaven Stage masters to teach him about the things he needed to pay attention to in order to break through to the Open Heaven. This kind of experience was exactly what the Iron Blood Great Emperor needed. With this experience, he would be able to avoid many risks during his breakthrough to the Open Heaven Stage.
It had been almost two months since the Iron Blood Great Emperor had refined the last piece of Sixth Grade Yang Element resource, so it should be about time for the results to be revealed.
This was the first cultivator from the Star Boundary who had ascended to Open Heaven. It was extremely important to the current Void Land and the people from the Star Boundary.
Therefore, Yang Kai arranged for some people to attend the ceremony! These people were all preparing to break through to the Sixth Order, so being able to personally witness the Iron Blood Great Emperor’s breakthrough would be of great benefit to them in the future.
When Old Bai had broken through to the Fifth Order, the Proprietress had specially brought Yang Kai to watch the ceremony, and this was precisely the reason.
As they were speaking, they saw a large group of people flying towards them. When they got close, all of them landed on the ground. There were more than twenty of them.
The ones in front were naturally the Great Emperors from the Star Boundary, Bustling World, Beast Martial, Serene Soul, Flower Shadow, Ice Feather, Tian Shu, and Wondrous Pill.
Next were Yang Yan, Li Wuyi, Bing Yun, Sheng Yuzhu, and the other Pseudo Emperors.
After them were several of his wives, Su Yan, Xia Ningchang, Shan Qingluo, Xue Yue, Yu Rumeng, and Ji Yao.
Yang Xue, Mo Xiaoqi, Lin Yun’er, Xiang Ying, and Fang Yue also came.
Everyone greeted him one by one, but there was no time for small talk. Everyone’s eyes turned towards the direction of the Iron Blood Great Emperor.
After observing for a while, Duan Hongchen frowned and asked, “What’s the situation over there?”
Yang Kai replied honestly, “He should still be refining, but it should be about time. We’ll know in half a month.”
Duan Hongchen nodded slightly and suddenly smiled, “I didn’t expect that we would also be able to break through to Open Heaven.”
Once trapped in the Star Boundary and unable to see the vastness of the Outer Universe, only by jumping out did one realize how small the world was. However, everyone understood that the greatest contributor to everyone’s success today was undoubtedly Yang Kai. If he hadn’t provided them with an unlimited amount of cultivation resources, even if they had jumped out to to Outer Universe, they might not have had a good result.
Since their arrival from the Star Boundary, the Great Emperors rarely gathered together and were usually busy with their own cultivation. If Yang Kai hadn’t asked them to attend the ceremony this time, they would still be in secluded cultivation.
Now that they had gathered together, there was naturally a lot to talk about, so it didn’t take long for them to start chatting.
Yang Kai didn’t pay any attention to them and instead shot a glance at his wives before walking to the side. Seeing this, the several women quickly followed.
Although Yang Kai would often find time to guide Su Yan and the others in their cultivation, most of the time, Su Yan and the others were in seclusion and they rarely saw each other, so it was only natural for them to feel lovesickness.
There were many people gathered here, and since it wasn’t a place to offer their affection, Yang Kai simply checked the cultivation progress of each of the women one by one, answering all of their questions in detail, allowing them to benefit greatly.
Three days later, Yang Kai, who was talking to the women, suddenly turned his head towards the direction of the Iron Blood Great Emperor and shouted, “It’s starting!”
The muttering on Spirit Peak suddenly quieted down as everyone turned their attention to the platform where the Iron Blood Great Emperor was sitting cross-legged. An extremely profound aura suddenly burst out.
“Is the arrangement over at the Star City done correctly?” Yang Kai asked.
Yue He quickly replied, “Everything has been arranged. Mo Mei will personally keep an eye on it, there won’t be any mistakes.”
Yang Kai nodded, “Open the formation!”
Yue He accepted the order and summoned the Formation Jade, her hands fluttering about as the Nine Layers Heaven Formation was activated.
The Nine Layers Heaven Formation that enveloped the Void Land was extremely powerful, but the more powerful the Formation, the more energy and resources it consumed.
So normally, the Nine Layers Heaven Formation was not fully activated, especially now that the Void Land lacked resources.
At this moment, under the control of Yue He, the Nine Layers Heaven Formation's Confusing and Illusion Array were both turned on.
When Iron Blood Great Emperor broke through to the Sixth Order, there would inevitably be a great disturbance. If there was no Great Array to isolate them, it was highly likely they would be spied upon by outsiders.
The Heavenly Sword Union was like a tiger eyeing its prey. It was unknown how many spies they had planted in the Void Territory and Star City, but once news of the breakthrough to the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage was spread, Heavenly Sword Union would soon receive the news.
Yang Kai didn’t know what Zuo Quan Hui’s reaction would be, but just in case he has to be careful, he still needed more time.
In the blink of an eye, the entire Void Land was covered in a thick layer of mist. Looking from afar, it was impossible to see anything inside.
Inside the Void Land, the movements of the Iron Blood Great Emperor became more obvious, and a series of muffled sounds slowly and rhythmically rang out from the Void, as if a giant invisible hand was beating a war drum.
Everyone focused all of their attention on him, not missing a single detail.
Watching others advance to the Sixth Order was extremely helpful to one’s future cultivation, so no one dared to relax.
Advancing to Open Heaven was the process of a cultivator opening a world in their body to form the Small Universe World. This process was extremely dangerous, because in order to break through to Open Heaven, one needed to first shatter their Dao Seal and melt it into the Small Universe World. If the Dao Seal was shattered and the Small Universe was unable to form, then their entire life of cultivation would be wasted.
If he succeeded, he would be reborn and soar into the sky. If he failed, he would lose his cultivation and be reduced to ashes. There is only two ending when breaking through to Open Heaven. One was to live, the other to die. There was no other choice.
As such, there were many Emperor Realm in these 3000 Worlds who already had the qualifications to break through to Open Heaven, but none of them dared take that final step.
The Great Emperors all wore solemn expressions.
Compared to Iron Blood, their foundation was almost the same. Perhaps Iron Blood was slightly better, but not by much. Whether or not Iron Blood could successfully advance to the Sixth Order was the key. If he failed, it would be a great blow to the Great Emperors from the Star Boundary.
If even the Great Emperors were like this, there was no need to mention the others.
As such, everyone present was nervous.
Seeing this, Yang Kai consoled, “Senior Iron Blood has a deep foundation and his Dao Seal is stable. Now that he has the protection of the Heavenly Yuan Positive Seal Pill, it shouldn’t be a problem for him to break through to Open Heaven. There’s no need to be so nervous.”
Mo Huang shook his head, “Who dares to say that nothing unexpected will happen on our path of cultivation? Reaching half the road, and before the dust settles, any carelessness may lead to unpredictable consequences.”
Yang Kai had wanted them to not be so nervous, but after hearing Mo Huang’s words, he could only nod and say, “Senior Beast Martial is right.”
As time passed, the aura of the Yin-Yang + Five Elements gradually rose and fell, mutually reinforcing and suppressing one another. On the Spirit Peak, the atmosphere was heavy and everyone knew that the Iron Blood Great Emperor’s side had reached a critical juncture, so how could they have the mood to speak?
The aura of the Yin-Yang + Five Elements continued without end, occasionally showing signs of disorder, causing everyone to be on edge. Fortunately, the Iron Blood Great Emperor’s foundation was quite deep, and although there were some twists and turns during his advancement, it wasn’t to the point where he couldn’t control himself.
Yang Kai paid close attention to this place and was prepared to help at any time. He didn’t know if he could help others when they encountered difficulties during their breakthrough to Open Heaven, or if he could help them in any way, but he could only prepare in advance.
At a certain moment, the aura of the Yin-Yang + Five Elements suddenly disappeared and everyone was shocked, thinking that something had really happened to the Iron Blood Great Emperor. However, soon after, a strange feeling spread out and they could sense that the place where the Iron Blood Great Emperor was standing was a chaotic mess, as if everything in this world had been turned into nothingness.
Yang Kai’s brow rose as he recalled the scene of him breaking through to the Open Heaven Stage. How could he not know that the Iron Blood Great Emperor had reached the final step? He couldn’t help feeling excited.
A fierce shout suddenly rang out from the Iron Blood Great Emperor’s side, “Open!”
A violent sound rang out as chaos erupted and the world was formed.
The aura of the newly born Universe World spread out in all directions like a thunderstorm, causing everyone’s clothes to flutter.
“Success!” Duan Hongchen exclaimed softly, his eyes filled with envy.
“Hahahaha!” Iron Blood Great Emperor laughed heartily, “Good, good!”
Beast Martial Great Emperor curled his lips, “Acting big!”
Although he said so, there was still pride in his eyes. After all, they were all Great Emperors, and with Iron Blood's achievements today, he would soon be able to catch up.
Yang Kai’s tense heart finally relaxed as he let out a long sigh and smiled, “Everyone, please come with me to congratulate him.”
Saying so, he took the lead and flew forward while the others followed closely behind.
In the blink of an eye, a hundred kilometers away, the Iron Blood Great Emperor stood there, gently clenching his fists, his face filled with confidence as if he could grasp the entire world in his palm.
Yang Kai could understand what he was feeling. On the road of martial arts, from the Emperor Realm to the Open Heaven, it was a leap in strength, a qualitative change that was difficult to describe, especially when the Iron Blood Great Emperor had broken through to the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage directly. At this moment, the strength he possessed was thousands of times stronger than before!
