How could Yang Kai have known about Wu Kuang’s rich experience? He only thought that Wu Kuang had been hiding in the Shattered Heaven all this time and was extremely surprised when he heard this, “You went to the Spatial Territory Battlefield?”
Wu Kuang proudly declared, “This King's achievements are outstanding! In your Great Evolution Army, I am also a famous character.”
Seeing his smug look, Yang Kai found it funny and waved his hand, “Let’s talk later, come with me.”
Although he still had many things he wanted to ask Wu Kuang, as well as the most important plan he needed to cooperate with, Yang Kai didn’t forget that there were still a few intact Universe Worlds in this vast universe waiting for him to refine.
Saying so, he reached out and grabbed Wu Kuang.
Wu Kuang hesitated for a moment but didn’t try to resist. From the day he had became famous, he had become the target of everyone’s hatred. Over the countless years, he had developed a personality that allowed him to dominate all enemies, but if there was anyone in this world he was willing to believe, it was probably Yang Kai.
Back then, it was Yang Kai who had secretly brought him to the Shattered Heaven, otherwise he would have remained hidden in the new Great Domain, not daring to show his face. After all, the Myriad Demons Heaven’ Pei Wen Xuan had died at his hands.
The Space Principle fluctuated wildly, causing Wu Kuang to feel as if the entire world had been flipped upside down. By the time he came back to his senses, he had arrived in a strange place.
Yang Kai ordered, “You stay here and recuperate, I’ll talk to you later.”
Turning around, he disappeared.
Wu Kuang didn’t find this strange at all. Yang Kai was proficient in the Space Principle, and now that his cultivation was a grade higher than Wu Kuang’s, it was indeed difficult for Wu Kuang to see through him.
Turning his head to look around, he saw a towering tree in front of him. This tree seemed to have some kind of illness and was somewhat sickly. Even most of the fruits on it had been destroyed.
Wu Kuang’s brow furrowed as he carefully examined the giant tree in front of him. He vaguely felt that he had seen this giant tree somewhere before, and that there was some unpleasant experience between them!
On the other side, Yang Kai once again arrived outside a completely intact Universe World. This time, the refining process was quite smooth.
After refining that Universe World into a World Bead, Yang Kai returned to the Great Ruins Boundary and saw Wu Kuang sitting cross-legged in front of the World Tree, staring at it.
He didn’t pay it any mind and continued to use the World Tree’s transit to head towards the next Universe World.
After several attempts, he finally finished refining all of the still intact Universe World.
When Yang Kai returned to the Great Ruins Boundary for the last time, he was shocked to see that the towering World Tree had disappeared for some unknown reason. Wu Kuang was hugging the lower body of a short and fat old man, seemingly begging for something.
This old man’s head was covered with a thick layer of hair that looked like branches hanging down, and countless fruits were growing on it.
The old man’s lower body also did not have legs, but instead was formed from countless roots.
Although Yang Kai had never seen this old man before, he could tell at a glance that he was the World Tree. After all, the branches on his head and the roots on his lower body were too obvious.
What surprised him was that the World Tree could actually transform into such an appearance, something he had never encountered before.
The old man was still holding a walking stick in his hand and at this moment, his face was filled with anger as he used it to smash Wu Kuang’s head, causing him to bleed profusely. [MSN: LMAO]
Even so, Wu Kuang still tightly held onto the old man’s lower body, not letting go. Yang Kai could even feel him using the Heaven Devouring Battle Law.
Seeing Yang Kai appear, Wu Kuang was pleasantly surprised and shouted, “Yang Boy, this is the World Tree, quickly help me refine it!”
It had taken him a long time to recognize that this was the legendary World Tree, so how could Wu Kuang resist such a precious treasure?
Over the past few years, even the Ink Force couldn't escape, so he immediately expressed his desire to refine the World Tree. If he could succeed, he would definitely be able to ascend to the heavens in a single step.
At that time, not to mention the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lord, even if it was the Royal Lord, he could swallow them at any time.
If he still had the cultivation of a Seventh Order Open Heaven cultivator, he wouldn’t be in such a sorry state, but this was the Great Ruins Boundary, so no matter what grade he was at, it would be difficult for him to use the Small Universe’s strength. At most, he could only display the strength of an Emperor Realm.
A mere Emperor Realm master couldn’t do anything in front of the World Tree.
The walking stick in the Old Tree’s hand smashed into Wu Kuang’s head, causing him to feel dizzy, but he still refused to let go, tightly hugging the Old Tree.
The roots of the Old Tree’s lower body also lashed out like thousands of whips, tearing his skin and flesh.
Just as they were entangled, Yang Kai returned.
Old Tree immediately became aggrieved, “Boy, why did you bring such a person here!”
The Old Tree was also extremely afraid. In his long life, this was not the first time such a thing had happened. In fact, it had happened once in a long time ago.
At that time, when that fellow named Shi saw him, he also act in such a manner, clamoring to refine him, making him panicked!
At that time, the Cultivation Technique Shi activated was the same as the one in front of him.
Old Tree immediately understood that this fellow in front of him definitely had some kind of relationship with Shi, otherwise, there was no reason for him to have the same cultivation technique.
The scene in front of him left Yang Kai speechless. He quickly stepped forward and grabbed Wu Kuang’s neck, exerting a bit of strength to lift him up.
The Old Tree was able to escape and quickly hid far away, breathing a sigh of relief.
Wu Kuang, who was being held in Yang Kai’s hand, turned his head to look at him, his face expressionless as he said lightly, “This King is still your Elder, is this how you treat me? Put me down!”
Is he not ashamed saying all these thigns after being carried away like this?
Yang Kai put him down and warned him worriedly, “Don’t act recklessly!”
Wu Kuang adjusted his clothes as if nothing had happened. If it weren’t for the bruises and bloodstains on his face, he wouldn’t look so miserable.
“Why aren’t you restricted by this place?” Wu Kuang asked curiously.
His cultivation had been suppressed to the Emperor Realm level, but Yang Kai had clearly not been suppressed and was still able to display the strength of an Eighth Order master, otherwise it would have been impossible for him to easily lift him up.
Yang Kai said, “I have refined many Universe World and obtained the Old Tree’s approval, so naturally I am not restricted.”
Wu Kuang looked thoughtful.
Yang Kai then looked towards the Old Tree and clicked his tongue in wonder, “You can even transform your shape?”
Being able to transform and speak, what was the meaning of shaking the trunk of the tree when communicating with him before?
The Old Tree said, “This old master has lived for so many years, so it would be strange if i'm not able to transform myself, but why did you bring him here? Quickly take him away!”
Although Wu Kuang’s cultivation was only at the Emperor Realm level, Old Tree didn’t feel safe staying here.
Yang Kai replied, “I’ll leave immediately, but before I leave, Old Tree, I have a presumptuous request.”
Old Tree looked at him vigilantly, “Tell me about it.”
Yang Kai bowed to him and said, “The Black Ink Clan invaded the 3000 Worlds on a large scale, so my Human Race had no choice but to retreat to the Star Boundary to buy time and space for our younger generation’s disciples to grow. Many Ninth Order master died in the Spatial Territory Battlefield, which was how the current situation developed. This Junior sincerely asks Old Tree to take pity on us and bestow upon us some Subtrees to nurture our Human Race’s talents!”
The Old Tree’s expression showed that it is as expected. As soon as Yang Kai opened his mouth to ask for a favor, he immediately made a guess.
After pondering for a moment, he asked, “How much do you want?”
Yang Kai thought about it for a moment and saw Wu Kuang secretly gesturing to him, immediately saying, “Not much, a hundred roots should be enough!”
Wu Kuang took a deep breath, secretly shocked by Yang Kai’s unreasonable demand, his sign clearing saying ten.
The Old Tree chuckled and said with a kind expression, “Young man, you’re quite interesting, how can a hundred roots count as not much? Why don’t you let the person next to you refine this old master?”
Wu Kuang immediately took a step forward, expressing his firm wishes.
Yang Kai probed, “Then ninety?”
Old Tree said angrily, “Do you know that every time this old master cuts off one of his roots, his vitality will be greatly damaged? This old master’s body is related to the entire Universe World of the 3000 Worlds, if this old master’s vitality is greatly damaged. If I were to feed the energy back to the Universe World, it would also damage these worlds. Moreover, you don’t understand the benefits of the Subtree, so you asked for too much. If you understood the mysteries of this world, you wouldn’t have made such ridiculous demands.”
Yang Kai had never thought about the feedback of the World Tree. He only knew that the World Tree was extremely beneficial to the living beings in the Small Universe, but he had never thought about the reason behind it.
Now that he heard the Old Tree’s words, there seemed to be some other explanation.
He immediately said humbly, “Please enlighten me, Old Tree.”
The Old Tree looked at him deeply before saying, “The reason why this old master’s Subtree is able to nourish a world is not because of its own mysteries, but because this Subtree is closely related to this old master. This Subtree extracted the power of other Universe World from this old master’s body to nourish its own world, but this kind of extraction will not affect the development of other Universe World.”
Yang Kai suddenly understood and asked, “Does Old Tree mean that the reason the Star Boundary is so prosperous now is because it extracted the power of other Universe Worlds to strengthen itself?”
Old Tree nodded, “Exactly.”
This was the first time Yang Kai had heard of such a thing, but since it had been brought up by the World Tree, it obviously wasn’t a lie, and after thinking about it carefully, it was quite reasonable.
“If that’s the case, isn’t it better to have as many of these things as possible?” Yang Kai immediately realized that the benefits of these Subtree does not lies in themselves, but rather to extract the power of the other Universe worlds. This extraction was not without limitations, but under the premise that it did not damage the development of other Universe Worlds.
If there was only one Subtree, this kind of feedback would be very powerful, but if there were two Subtrees, the feedback force would also be divided into two. The more of them there were, the less the feedback force would be. After all, the total amount of Universe Worlds in the 3000 worlds was still there.
No wonder Old Tree had said that if he understood the mysteries behind it, he wouldn’t have made such a ridiculous request.
If the mystery of the Subtree was because it had extracted the power of other Universe Worlds, then having too many Subtrees would be useless.
He suddenly thought of something, “What about the Subtree in the Cultivator's Small Universe?”
The Old Tree said, “Naturally, that’s also the case. Your Small Universe also has a Subtree. Previously, it was difficult for you to detect it, but now that you’ve refined so many Universe World, if you focus your attention on it, you’ll definitely be able to see through it.”
