The last time he returned to the Star Boundary, he had taken six hundred thousand people with him, Yang Kai had left his Embodiment in the Demon Territory. This Embodiment is a Stone Puppet and was born with the ability to refine all kinds of impurities, making it an excellent candidate to cultivate the Heaven Devouring Battle Law.
It could be said that Wu Kuang’s Heaven Devouring Battle Law was naturally prepared for the Stone Puppet Clan, so Yang Kai had long since imparted this heaven-defying Evil Art to it.
Yang Kai didn’t know how Wu Kuang had managed to resolve the various drawbacks brought about by cultivating the Heaven Devouring Battle Law. He had tried cultivating it in the Divine Weapon World, and although his cultivation had improved at a rapid pace, the higher his cultivation, the harder it was to control his temperament. Fortunately, the Dragon Vein’s power was able to suppress it, otherwise he would have long since suffered Qi Deviation.
After leaving the Divine Weapon World, Yang Kai no longer dared to be contaminated by the Heaven Devouring Battle Law, lest his temperament be affected.
The two universe world, Star Boundary and Demon territory were neighbors and quite harmonious.
Looking around, the Demon Territory didn’t seem to have changed much, but Yang Kai could feel a vigorous vitality from the Star Boundary. He even saw a giant tree crown at the top of the mountain.
This was the location where he had planted the World Tree Root. Over the years, the World Tree’s root had grown to a height of several hundred meters.
Yang Kai secretly clicked his tongue. The World Tree he had seen in the Great Ruins Boundary didn’t seem to be this huge, he didn’t know how it grew.
Just as he was lost in thought, a familiar aura rapidly approached him. Turning his head, Yang Kai saw a black light streak through the air and appear in front of him in the next instant. The light dissipated and revealed the figure of his Embodiment.
Their eyes met and Yang Kai grinned, “Long time no see!”
“You’re back?” The Embodiment also smiled and asked.
“I’m back!” Yang Kai took a deep breath. This feeling of chatting with his Clone was quite strange.
Embodiment swept his eyes over him and raised his brow slightly, “The things you’ve experienced over the years are truly fascinating.”
Embodiment was formed from a wisp of Yang Kai’s Soul that had entered the body of the dead Stone Puppet, so it could be considered his Clone. As long as the distance between them wasn’t too far, they could naturally communicate with each other, so as long as Yang Kai opened his mind, this Embodiment could see everything he had experienced over the years.
“In the Outer Universe, there are many dangers, but without any foundation, I can only try my best,” Yang Kai replied with a smile.
“Are there pursuers behind us?” The Embodiment looked deeper into the Void.
Yang Kai nodded, “I don’t know if they have already entered this domain, but you must be careful.” His expression became solemn as he asked, “When did the Star Boundary change?”
The Embodiment said, “See for yourself.”
Yang Kai nodded and unceremoniously probed the depths of its Divine Sense, quickly understanding everything. As its main body, Yang Kai was naturally able to spy on the experiences of his Embodiment.
Although his Embodiment had always been stationed in the Demon Territory, the Demon Territory and Star Boundary were neighbors, so the changes in the Star Boundary were naturally under his attention.
The changes in the Star Boundary could be described as silent. After Yang Kai planted the World Tree’s root and confirmed that the world had stabilized, the Star Boundary was no longer in danger of being destroyed, so he left with six hundred thousand people.
The survival and growth of the World Tree had consumed a great deal of the Star Boundary's Spiritual Energy. In the years after Yang Kai’s departure, the World Energy in the Star Boundary had become extremely thin and the rate at which cultivators cultivated was extremely slow. In fact, in the past few years, no cultivator had been able to break through their shackles and advance to a higher realm.
However, several years later, the World Tree began to feed back the Star Boundary, causing the World Energy to gradually become denser and the damaged Laws to be repaired and the Heavenly Law to become more stable. As a result, not only did the cultivation of the cultivators become easier, but their breakthroughs also became easier.
As time passed, this situation became more obvious, and when people discovered this change, the entire Star Boundary was in an uproar.
The World Tree had already become the Divine Tree of the Star Boundary. Countless people had traveled through the mountains and rivers just to go to the World Tree and worship it.
In particular, in recent years, many cultivators with poor aptitude had broken through to the Emperor Realm, and those who had remained at the First Order Emperor Realm had all broken through to the Third Order, even comprehending their own Great Dao and condensing their Dao Seals.
The situation of the newly born babies was especially obvious. In the past, when the various great Sects took in disciples, it was normal for one to be selected from a hundred or even a thousand miles away. After all, there weren’t many children suitable for cultivation, and even if those with poor aptitudes were taken in, spending a great deal of resources wouldn’t yield any results.
But now, of the newly born babies, half of them were suitable for cultivation, one in a hundred was a genius, and one in a thousand was an extreme genius!
Hei He had previously said that the various great sects had taken in many good seedlings, and this was the case.
All of this was thanks to the World Tree’s nurturing!
Hearing this, Yang Kai’s expression changed slightly as he directed his eyes towards the World Tree.
The World Tree’s feedback couldn’t possibly be water without roots. It had consumed a large amount of World Energy when it was growing, so where did the energy it produced come from?
He hadn’t looked carefully just now, but now that he looked carefully, he did see some traces, but they weren’t very clear.
With a thought, his left eye opened and a golden vertical eye appeared.
Demon Eye of Annihilation!
Under this Demon Eye of Annihilation, Yang Kai’s vision suddenly became clear. He saw countless indescribable energies being absorbed by the World Tree, becoming nutrients for the World Tree’s growth. On top of the World Tree’s huge crown, there were even specks of light that spread out, transforming into pure Spiritual Energy that filled the world and filled the Star Boundary with World Energy.
So that was how it was!
Yang Kai suddenly understood.
The World Tree’s energy was actually coming from the Void. The Void is not complete nihility, and the Void's energy is omnipresent and all-encompassing, but even an ordinary Open Heaven Stage cultivator would find it difficult to refine and use it, but the World Tree could.
For example, the Nine Layers Heaven Formation in the Void Land was constantly absorbing the power of the Void and transforming it into the energy of the Formation.
However, compared to the World Tree in front of him, the Nine Layers Heaven Formation's ability to absorb Void Energy was simply incomparable.
Yang Kai could clearly see that under the World Tree’s devouring, the Void Energy in every corner of his vision was flowing towards the World Tree.
In other words, the energy of this entire domain could be used by the World Tree.
The Embodiment on the side also sucked in a breath of cold air. Yang Kai had not blocked his senses, so the Embodiment could use his Demon Eye of Annihilation to see everything Yang Kai saw and couldn’t help muttering, “So that’s how it is. If this continues, what kind of scene will the Star Boundary become?”
Yang Kai put away the Demon Eye of Annihilation and shook his head, “I don’t know, but it shouldn’t be too bad.”
Not only would it not be too bad, in the future, every corner of the Star Boundary would be a paradise for cultivation. Cultivating here would be countless times faster than cultivating on any other continent.
Calming himself down, Yang Kai said, “We’ll discuss the matter of the World Tree later. Right now, we don’t have much time, so I’ll go back to High Heaven Palace first to see my parents. I’m afraid there will be a great battle soon. Although the Domain Gate is quite far from here, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Go find Hua Qing Si and explain the situation to her so she can take precautions.”
“Good!” The Embodiment nodded.
Yang Kai activated his Space Laws again and his figure flickered as he disappeared from the spot.
In the next moment, the two of them had reached the depths of High Heaven Palace.
Without any further communication, his Embodiment immediately flew out and sent a message to Hua Qing Si to discuss important matters.
Yang Kai went straight to the Spirit Peak where his parents lived.
At the peak of a Spirit Peak, a sea of bamboo and a dense spiritual mist filled the air.
When Yang Kai arrived here, he happened to see a group of children sitting cross-legged in the middle of the sea of bamboo, all of them wearing High Heaven Palace uniforms. All of them had their eyes wide open as they stared at a middle-aged man in front of them, listening attentively. A few of the little kids seemed to have heard something and shook their heads as if they had received some kind of inspiration.
Yang Fourth Master was currently preaching.
Seeing this scene, Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing. Since when had his father become so interested in this? In the past, Yang Kai had never seen him preach the Dao to High Heaven Palace’s disciples, but now that he thought about it, his father was only a First Order Emperor Realm, and High Heaven Palace’s cultivation was far higher than his own, so there was no need for him to worry.
Now that he had condensed a Dao Seal and his cultivation had reached the limit of the Universe World's capacity, he was qualified to pass on his Dao to the disciples.
Yang Kai didn’t step forward to disturb him and simply watched quietly. The anxiety he had felt from facing the High Rank Open Heaven for so long was now completely swept away and his mind became calm.
With a creak, the loft behind Yang Fourth Master was suddenly pushed open and a figure rushed out, glaring, “Son is back?”
After being interrupted, Yang Fourth Master frowned unhappily, but after considering the difference in strength between him and his wife, he decided to swallow his anger and grumpily said, “That little brat is being free in the outside world, how could he bear to come back?”
Dong Suzhu frowned and looked around, “Strange, I clearly feel…”
Before she could finish speaking, she suddenly stared in a certain direction.
Yang Kai was speechless. He is currently a Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator, and he had come here silently. Not to mention that Dong Suzhu was only an Emperor Realm, even a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivator might not be able to discover him here.
However, Dong Suzhu had sensed it!
Was this the bond between a mother and son? This kind of connection had nothing to do with one’s cultivation, nor did it have anything to do with one’s realm, but it was the most intimate connection between the two.
With a thought, Yang Kai appeared and stared at Dong Suzhu, smiling even more brilliantly than a flower.
Dong Suzhu was stunned, her beautiful eyes quickly filling with a layer of mist before she let out a scream and rushed towards Yang Kai like the wind, hugging him tightly.
She was originally a petite woman, shorter than Yang Kai by a head, but at this moment, Yang Kai felt an unprecedented sense of care and safety, as if he had returned to the time when he was still in his mother's womb. Whether it was the wind or the rain, his mother would always protect him.
Yang Fourth Master also slowly stood up and looked over, rubbing his eyes as if he was afraid he was seeing things.
