On Yang Kai’s shoulder, there was a deep wound that was so deep that even his bones could be seen. Golden dragon blood filled the air, Zuo Quan Hui’s attack was clearly extraordinary. If Yang Kai hadn’t tilted his head at the last moment, the consequences would have been unimaginable.
However, he did not retreat!
Seemingly unable to feel any pain, the Azure Dragon Spear was thrust forward.
Boom boom boom…
Layer after layer of protection broke through, and even the Heavenly Sword Palace’s walls were pierced through. More than a dozen Open Heaven Stage cultivators who couldn’t dodge in time were swept up by the spear’s power, but before they could even make a sound, they exploded into a bloody mist. When the small universe collapsed, the World Force dissipated and melted into the void.
Yang Kai didn’t have time to pull out his spear before he saw Heavenly Sword Palace suddenly light up and shoot out a beam of light towards his face.
This beam of light came out of nowhere, but its power was extremely terrifying, comparable to an attack from a High Rank Open Heaven.
Yang Kai couldn’t even figure out whether this beam of light had been shot out by Zuo Quan Hui or if it had been triggered by the power of Heavenly Sword Palace’s Formation.
Instinctively raising his spear to block, Yang Kai let out a muffled groan as he was sent flying into the void.
At the same time, countless rays of light shot out from the interior of the Heavenly Sword Palace. Although they were not as terrifying as the one that attacked Yang Kai, they were still comparable to a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage strike.
There were more than a thousand rays of light!
Such an attack was obviously not something a Heavenly Sword Union disciple could use, it was definitely the power of the Formation.
Seeing this, the Void Land disciples who had been attacking from the periphery of the Heavenly Sword Palace didn’t dare hesitate and quickly used their defensive Divine Abilities and artifacts to defend themselves.
However, there were always flaws.
As blood splashed, dozens of Void Land disciples were pierced through and most of them were instantly killed. Only a few of them managed to survive and were quickly forced to retreat to recover.
Even Zhu Qing, who had revealed her dragon form, had suffered a blow. Fortunately, Flower Shadow Great Emperor had taken the blow for her.
For a time, the many Open Heaven Stage disciples in the Void Land no longer dared to approach the Heavenly Sword Palace and quickly retreated.
This was the terrifying aspect of a large-scale palace artifact. This kind of artifact was like a fortress, both offensive and defensive, difficult to deal with.
This was the first time the people from the Void Land had come into contact with such a large artifact, so they were not experienced enough to deal with it, resulting in some unnecessary damage.
Dragon Roar shook the sky as Yang Kai, who had been sent flying, flashed back and saw the casualties of his disciples. Immediately, he shouted, “Those below the Fifth Order coordinate from afar, the rest of you follow me!”
As soon as he finished speaking, he took the lead and raised his massive Azure Dragon Spear before smashing it down.
A transparent barrier appeared above the Heavenly Sword Palace, but it was unable to block the violent might of the Azure Dragon Spear. When the barrier shattered, a terrifying force slammed into the Heavenly Sword Palace like a falling star, causing it to sink down.
Yang Kai’s figure flickered as he appeared directly below the Heavenly Sword Palace and swept his spear out again.
A huge halo exploded and the Heavenly Sword Palace was swept away in another direction.
After a few rounds, several worlds collapsed, and the World Force aura dissipated from Heavenly Sword Palace. Obviously, someone had been killed.
At the same time, the Void Land people’s attacks never stopped.
However, those below the Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage could only support them from a distance, and their usefulness was limited. The only ones who could pose a real threat to the Heavenly Sword Palace were the nineteen Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage other than Yang Kai, and dozens of Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage.
Originally, the advantage in numbers had disappeared, but the Heavenly Sword Union’s people had refused to take the risk and defended themselves. With the exception of a few unlucky fools who had died in battle, the number of people remaining had not changed much.
Previously, relying on their numerical advantage, the Void Land was able to pose a certain degree of threat to the Heavenly Sword Palace, but now that everyone was attacking the Heavenly Sword Palace with their Divine Abilities and Secret Techniques, very few of them were able to achieve anything. Basically, all of them were intercepted halfway.
Zuo Quan Hui also attacked from time to time, causing Yang Kai to hesitate to act. Although using his Space Laws to threaten the Heavenly Sword Palace, it was still difficult for him to stop it from advancing towards the Star Boundary.
If this situation continued, if they were unable to destroy Heavenly Sword Palace, the Star Boundary would certainly face a great catastrophe.
Yang Kai flew into a rage and shouted, “Old dog, if you have the guts, come out and fight! What kind of skill is hiding in Heavenly Sword Palace?”
Zuo Quan Hui’s response was even fiercer, forcing Yang Kai to dodge.
As they chased and cursed, the two sides fought in the void for half a month, but neither side was able to do anything to the other. On the contrary, they were getting closer to the Star Boundary.
Yang Kai’s heart was filled with anxiety, but there was nothing he could do. He was now a Sixth Order, but he still felt powerless.
All of the Great Emperors were the same! Their Divine Senses interacted with each other as they discussed how to deal with the enemy, but in this situation, none of their plans could be used.
The Star Boundary was in danger!
After a few more days, Yang Kai could already see the Star Boundary and Demon Territory’s two Universe Worlds in the distance. Outside Heavenly Sword Palace, Yang Kai was no longer able to maintain his dragon form and had reverted to his human form. Maintaining his dragon form for a long time was quite taxing on him.
After half a month of fierce fighting, Yang Kai’s entire body was bathed in blood, his killing intent seemingly tangible as it lingered around his body.
“Is that Star Boundary?”
Inside the Heavenly Sword Palace’s main hall, Zuo Quan Hui raised his brow slightly as he looked around. The Star Boundary appeared before his eyes, but he couldn’t see anything special about it. He didn’t know why a World Tree would appear here.
Although Yin Xinzhao had managed to obtain some information from Lan Xun’s Soul, the Soul Searching Technique had a great drawback. Even if his strength was suppressed, it was unavoidable. He had no way to determine what kind of information he could obtain from Lan Xun. In other words, what he could obtain from Lan Xun with Soul Searching Technique was entirely up to luck.
Just like how he didn’t know if the World Tree had blossomed or bore fruit, he also didn’t know that this World Tree was planted by Yang Kai in the past, causing Zuo Quan Hui to think that the World Tree in the Star Boundary was naturally bred.
The World Tree was undoubtedly extremely eye-catching, so when Zuo Quan Hui saw the giant tree standing in the middle of the Star Boundary, his eyes filled with joy, “It really is the World Tree!”
He had never seen the World Tree before and had only read a few ancient records about it, but at this moment, the entire Star Boundary was shrouded in a thick vitality, causing it to appear dark green.
If this Divine Tree was not the World Tree, then what was it?
Taking a closer look, Zuo Quan Hui frowned. He actually didn’t see any World Fruits. Perhaps it was because he was too far away, or perhaps the fruits had been harvested by someone else, but no matter what, as long as he could seize this Star Boundary, the World Tree and World Fruit would be his.
At the same time, in the Heavenly Sword Palace hall, Pei Wen Xuan was also staring at a certain spot.
Unlike Zuo Quan Hui who was looking at the Star Boundary, he was looking at the Demon Territory!
For some reason, he felt an extremely familiar aura from the Demon Territory, as if something there was related to him.
On top of that, the Demonic Qi of this Universe World was obviously extremely compatible with his Small Universe World. In other words, he could directly swallow the Demon Territory’s World Force to strengthen his Small Universe World.
If he could do so, it would definitely save him a lot of time to cultivate!
He had come to help Zuo Quan Hui this time mainly because he had some personal grievances with Yang Kai and wanted to use Zuo Quan Hui’s strength to deal with Yang Kai to vent his anger.
Unexpectedly, he had obtained such an opportunity.
The power of an entire Universe World was enough to save him several hundred years or even a thousand years of cultivation. He believed that after Zuo Quan Hui destroyed the Void Land and seized the Star Boundary, he would not be stingy with giving this Demon Territory to him.
This time, he had really picked up a treasure! While Pei Wen Xuan was secretly excited, a stream of light suddenly flew over from the side. It was the Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage from the Void Land called Hua Yong. With a wave of his hand, Demonic Qi surged and dissolved it.
“How did the Star Boundary become like this? And the World Tree!”
Yang Kai did his best to block the Heavenly Sword Palace’s advance while glancing towards the Star Boundary, his heart filled with shock.
He had just returned to the Star Boundary a month ago, but when he returned to the Star Boundary a month ago, it was not like this.
Compared to when he had left, the Star Boundary at that time had indeed changed greatly, but it was not to this extent!
What they saw was that the Star Boundary was wrapped in an extremely rich vitality and the entire Star Boundary was a dark green color, causing everyone to gasp in amazement.
Even from a thousands of kilometers away, Yang Kai could still feel the vitality of the Star Boundary from the void.
And the World Tree!
Although it had already grown to a height of several hundred zhang, it was obviously taller now, almost twice the size of a month ago. It was at least a thousand zhang tall, truly an indomitable existence.
The changes in the Star Boundary were definitely related to the World Tree, and it was the World Tree’s feedback. But in this one month, why had the World Tree’s feedback been so strong, even allowing it to grow so strangely?
Yang Kai couldn’t understand!
At this moment, an aura of destruction spread from Heavenly Sword Palace, indicating the death of Open Heaven Stage cultivator from Heavenly Sword Union.
Although the Heavenly Sword Palace’s defenses were strong, the joint attack of twenty Sixth Order and dozens of Fifth Order cultivators was no joke. Along the way, at least a hundred Open Heaven Stage masters from Heavenly Sword Union had died. On the other hand, because of the Open Heaven Stage masters below Fifth Grade helping from a distance, the Void Land’s side didn’t suffer much loss, with the exception of the dozens of people who had died in the beginning.
However, both Sixth Order and Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage were heavily damaged and consumed a great deal of energy.
In the next moment, Yang Kai looked towards the Heavenly Sword Palace in shock, his vision shifting back to the Star Boundary.
When the Heavenly Sword Palace’s unknown Open Heaven Stage cultivator died in battle, their small universe collapsed and the World Force dissipated. Yang Kai could clearly feel that the World Force was being drawn towards the Star Boundary, pouring into the World Tree and swallowing it.
In a flash, Yang Kai seemed to understand something.
When Heavenly Sword Union’s Open Heaven Stage masters had died in battle, Yang Kai had vaguely sensed the dispersion of the World Force, but he hadn’t paid much attention to it at the time, but now that he thought about it, the World Force was clearly flowing towards the Star Boundary.
This time, it was because they were too close to the Star Boundary that he could feel it clearly.
