The Crystal Palace had the ability to prevent others from spying on it, but those inside could see everything.
Since Azure Luan was here, Kun Ao probably wouldn’t do anything to him. Yang Kai walked out boldly and frowned, “Is there something you need?”
Kun Ao said, “Boy, let me ask you, how is the refinement of this Crystal Palace going?”
Yang Kai thought to himself, this guy really cares a lot. Crystal Palace is a sacred artifact of the Dragon Clan, so why is he asking about it? Could it be that he wants to take over Crystal Palace?
After glancing over at Azure Luan, Azure Luan said, “The sixteen Sacred Artifacts have been linked together for countless years, they have already become one, the Saint Artifacts could only be taken out at the same time. Now that all the races have refined their own Sacred Artifacts, all that’s left is the Dragon Clan’s Crystal Palace.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai immediately understood.
“I can refine this Crystal Palace, but it will take a long time.”
“How long will it take?” Kun Ao asked with a raised brow.
“A few dozen years, maybe a hundred!” Yang Kai replied.
“So long!” Kun Ao frowned, “But it doesn’t matter, just focus on refining it and we’ll wait for you!”
Although hundreds of years was not a short time, it was nothing to a Holy Spirit with a long lifespan. Let alone hundreds of years, even if it was hundreds or thousands of years, Kun Ao could wait. As long as he could retrieve the Sacred Artifact, this amount of time was nothing.
“I don’t plan on spending so much time refining it,” Yang Kai shook his head.
Kun Ao’s eyes narrowed, “What do you mean?”
Yang Kai replied, “Coming to the Ancestral Land was just an accident. I still have important matters to attend to outside, so I can’t waste too much time here.”
This trip had been quite long, there was no need to worry about the Void Land. With the two Holy Spirits, Old Sir Bi Xi and Zhu Jiu Yin, guarding it, as long as the various Cave Heaven Paradise didn’t take action, no one in the 3000 Worlds could do anything to the Void Land.
He still needed to pay more attention to the Star Boundary World Tree and the new Great Domain, not to mention that his two disciples were still in his Small Universe, he needed to arrange for them to settle on the Star Boundary as soon as possible to help them grow.
All these years, Yang Kai had been suppressing Zhao Ya’s cultivation because he was afraid she would grow too quickly.
The Star Boundary is the best cradle for the Open Heaven Stage. If one could grow there, their future potential would naturally be greater and they would be able to go further.
The Small Universe's time flow was twice as fast as the outside world’s. If he stayed in the Ancestral Land for more than a hundred years, Zhao Ya might have already become an Emperor Realm. At that time, even if he settles them in the Star Boundary, they wouldn’t be able to obtain much of the World Tree’s power.
Yang Kai had originally planned to return to the Star Boundary as soon as the matter with the Ancestral Land was settled.
“I’m afraid that’s not up to you,” Kun Ao sneered, “Don’t think that just because you have the Phoenix Clan’s protection, you can do whatever you want in the Ancestral Land. This matter concerns the Sacred Artifacts of the various clans, so the Phoenix Clan cannot favor you.”
Azure Luan frowned slightly, but Kun Ao’s words were also true. This matter was indeed related to the interests of the various races, so if the Phoenix Clan were to act stubbornly, it would only incur public anger.
“Can you speed up?” Qing Luan asked.
Yang Kai said, “Refining the Crystal Palace should have something to do with one’s bloodline. My current bloodline is still quite low, all the Seniors have already completely refined all the Sacred Artifacts of the various races, but there’s nothing I can do about it. If I want to speed things up, I can only improve my bloodline first. If I can promote my bloodline to the Big Dragon level, I’m confident I can refine the Crystal Palace in half a year, but that’s not something I can accomplish in a short time.”
Kun Ao said, “Since the Ancestral Qi here is so rich, you can cultivate peacefully in the Crystal Palace and improve your bloodline! You must know that this is something all the juniors of the Ancestral Land dreamed of but never obtained.”
Yang Kai rolled his eyes and couldn’t be bothered with him.
Azure Luan thoughtfully said, “Perhaps there is a way to quickly improve your bloodline.”
Yang Kai looked at her, “Senior means…”
Azure Luan suddenly turned to Kun Ao and asked, “Did your Kun Clan obtain many Ancestral Spirit Fruits this time?”
Kun Ao was stunned for a moment before quickly reacting and shaking his head, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Azure Luan smiled, “The Ancestral Spirit Fruit contains a large amount of pure Ancestral Qi. If he consumes it, he will naturally be able to rapidly improve his bloodline. In the past, we have only heard that the Ancestral Spirit Fruit once existed in the Ancestral Land, but we have never seen it before. Now that the Sealing Demon Land has opened, the various races should have more or less obtained some of it. Each family should be able to provide enough for him to become a Big Dragon.”
Kun Ao said angrily, “Azure Luan, although the Dragon and Phoenix Clans have always worn the same pair of pants since ancient times, your heart is too crooked. This Young Dragon is a Holy Spirit, but is Ancestral Land’s Holy Spirit isn’t a Holy Spirit? It wasn’t easy for everyone to obtain some Ancestral Spirit Fruits, which family's juniors doesn’t need them? Why should we give them to him?”
Yang Kai stroked his chin, “If I have enough Ancestral Spirit Fruits, I can give it a try!”
Kun Ao narrowed his eyes and glared at him, “Junior, don’t try to take advantage of me. This King’s killing intent towards you is very strong!”
Yang Kai shrugged, “Without the Ancestral Spirit Fruit, there’s no way to quickly advance to the Big Dragon realm, so there’s nothing I can do!”
“You really think I don’t dare kill you!” Kun Ao said coldly.
Yang Kai looked up at the sky and arrogantly said, “If you kill me, you won’t be able to obtain the Sacred Artifacts of the various races. Ask the Holy Spirits of the various races if they agree!”
Kun Ao’s nose was crooked from anger!
He had never imagined that he would be controlled by this Young Dragon one day, feeling like his long years of cultivation had been greatly humiliated!
Azure Luan said, “It’s better to ask everyone’s opinion first. It’s useless to argue here and there.”
Saying so, she sent out a sound transmission, and a moment later, the various Holy Spirits gathered together to explain the current situation, all of them staring at Yang Kai with strange expressions.
“It’s not impossible to cultivate without an Ancestral Spirit Fruit. Although I don’t know what kind of Ancestral Qi is inside the Dragon Clan’s Crystal Palace, I’m certain it’s extraordinary. Cultivating inside will only take a little time, so why waste such a precious thing like an Ancestral Spirit Fruit!” A Holy Spirit said.
“That’s right, the Ancestral Spirit Fruit isn’t easy to obtain and needs to be used wisely.”
“I think this little brat is just trying to extort us. It’s said that the Dragon Clan is greedy, but I’ve never seen it before. It seems like it’s true today!”
“What’s the point of paying attention to such ridiculous requests!”
“How could he dare not cultivate? Placing a blade on his neck, let’s see if he cultivates!”
The many Holy Spirits all voiced their opinions, causing Azure Luan to feel a headache.
Yang Kai stood in front of the Crystal Palace, acting as if he would immediately hide if something went wrong, his hands clasped behind his back as he waited for everyone to finish speaking before saying, “It was you who insisted that I refine the Crystal Palace, I didn’t want to. Since you want to force me to do something I’m not willing to do, you must pay a price, otherwise you can just wait.”
Kun Ao sneered, “You think you can hide in the Crystal Palace for thousands of years?”
“That’s hard to say, we’ll just have to see which of us is more patient.”
Azure Luan said, “Alright, I didn’t call you here to quarrel. All of you aren’t young, so is it really fun to quarrel with a junior? Yang Kai is right, if you want him to promote his bloodline, you naturally need to give him some benefits. I was the one who proposed the Ancestral Spirit Fruit, so my Phoenix Clan will first express our opinion!”
Saying so, she waved her hand.
Hong Hu stepped forward and took out thirteen Ancestral Spirit Fruits before handing them over to Azure Luan.
"I don't want you to take out all the ancestral spirit fruits. You can always take half of them, right? Half of my Phoenix clan is here!"
Kun Ao rolled his eyes, “Azure Luan, how dare you be so biased?”
Azure Luan smiled and said, “Opening the seal, my Phoenix Clan has allowed you to collect the Sacred Artifact, and my Phoenix Clan has also allowed you to do so. Now that my Phoenix Clan has taken the lead in this matter, if you don’t give us face, in the future, if anything happens in the Ancestral Land, don’t include my Phoenix Clan!”
Hearing this, the Holy Spirits all looked at each other in dismay. Azure Luan had already said so much, if they didn’t show any reaction, it would be quite embarrassing.
Although they couldn’t bear to part with the Ancestral Spirit Fruit, they could only comply.
One by one, they took out a number of Ancestral Spirit Fruits and handed them over to Azure Luan. Although they couldn’t guarantee that they only take out half of them, with all of them gathered together, there were more than two hundred Ancestral Spirit Fruits.
Azure Luan flicked her finger and tossed the Space Ring containing the Ancestral Spirit Fruit to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai accepted it with a radiant smile and cupped his fists, “Seniors, please rest assured that this little brat will go into secluded cultivation right now and not disappoint the expectations of Seniors. I hope he can become a Big Dragon soon so that Seniors can take back their Sacred Artifacts!”
Many Holy Spirits were secretly gnashing their teeth as they stared at him, but on the surface, all they could do was put on a smile and act like they were all seniors.
Yang Kai nodded to Azure Luan again before turning around and walking into the Crystal Palace.
However, before he could enter, he suddenly remembered something and turned around, “Senior, I have a request.”
“Speak.” Azure Luan nodded.
“Becoming a Big Dragon isn’t something that can be accomplished in a short period of time. I don’t know how long it will take, but my friend is a human race cultivator. Now that the Sealing Demon Land has opened and the Ancestral Land’s Spiritual Force is rich, it’s not suitable for her to remain here. Senior, please send someone to escort her away.”
Previously, when the Ancestral Land’s Ancestral Qi was weak, Xia Linlang’s brief stay in the Ancestral Land was not a big deal, but now, the situation was different. Bright Sun Divine Monarch's cultivation was at the Eighth Order Open Heaven Stage, but after entering the Sealing Demon Land for less than an incense stick’s worth of time, he showed signs of Monster Transformation, so how could Xia Linlang resist for long?
Azure Luan naturally knew who he was referring to and nodded, “Don’t worry, I’ll have someone send her away.”
“Many thanks, Senior. Also, tell her that if she is willing, please go to the Void Land in the Void Territory.”
Pear Flower Cave Heaven had been destroyed, so Xia Linlang had no place to stay in Shattered Heaven unless she could find another ownerless Universe Paradise or Universe Cave Heaven.
However, although Yang Kai had asked Azure Luan to pass on the message, Xia Linlang probably wouldn’t be willing to go to the Void Land. With her Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation, once she appeared outside Shattered Heaven, she would definitely have no choice. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have taken Yang Kai and fled into the depths of Shattered Heaven and could have left with him.
Yang Kai was just doing his best. Xia Linlang is a Seventh Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, not a child, so she naturally had plans for her own future.
The Crystal Palace closed again and Yang Kai found a spacious hall and sat down cross-legged.
Although he wanted to quickly return to the Star Boundary and settle down his two disciples, now that things had come to this, he could only improve his bloodline power first, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to answer to the Holy Spirits waiting outside.
