Half a day later, in the void, Yang Kai used the Thunder Shadow’s Natal Divine Ability to conceal his aura and figure while staring at the egg-shaped mist from afar, his face filled with sadness.
Originally, he had thought that since there was only one Ninth Order Small Stone Race, it would be a pity if he couldn’t subdue them, but since there was nothing he could do, he could only accept it.
However, Yang Kai later discovered that there was more than one Ninth Order Small Stone Race!
After half a day of probing and pulling, Yang Kai was certain that there were no fewer than five Ninth Order Small Stone Race masters! As for how many of them there were, he couldn’t say for sure, because each time these Ninth Order Small Stone Race masters fought their way out of the mist, once they exhausted themselves too much, they would return to the mist and after returning, they would melt into the sea of mist like water and disappear without a trace.
This was also the reason why Yang Kai hadn’t seen these Ninth Order Small Stone Race members before, as their existence was difficult to detect.
At the very least, there were five Ninth Order Small Stone Race members, perhaps even more. Yang Kai stared at the mist, his eyes filled with greed, tears almost flowing down his face…
If he could successfully subdue this force, it would be of great help to the Human Race in their current situation, but right now, he could only see that he didn’t have the ability or means to subdue it.
The Sun and Moon Marks was unable to command these Ninth Order Small Stone Race, so Yang Kai had tried to force one of them into his Small Universe to suppress it…
However, this thing’s intelligence was low and it was impossible to communicate with it. Even if it was suppressed, it would still resist at all times, drawing upon Yang Kai’s energy and strength. If it was brought to the battlefield like this, it might even cause some damage to the Human Race.
Helpless, Yang Kai could only release the suppressed Small Stone Race.
Unable to subdue it, Yang Kai was unwilling to just leave like this, his mood quite gloomy.
According to his estimations, since this Ninth Order Small Stone Race had been born because Zhang Ruoxi had harmonized the power of the Sun and Moon, only Zhang Ruoxi could command them.
Moreover, judging from their behavior, these Ninth Order Small Stone Race seemed to be protecting Zhang Ruoxi, because if Yang Kai didn’t approach them, he would be safe, but once he did, these Ninth Order Small Stone Race’s attacks would be triggered. This was obviously a form of protection.
Yang Kai didn’t know what Zhang Ruoxi, Big Brother Huang, and Big Sister Lan had done over the past thousand years, but from the looks of it, they seemed to have done something incredible. The birth of a Ninth Order Small Stone Race was simply unimaginable.
After quietly observing for a long time, Yang Kai had no choice but to withdraw his greed. There were always some things in this world that couldn’t be forced.
What was certain now was that Zhang Ruoxi herself was safe, and she was using her Heaven's Order Bloodline to harmonize with Big Brother Huang and Big Sister Lan’s Yang and Yin Force. Although he didn’t know how long this process would last, once she succeeded, she might be able to step into the Ninth Order!
At that time, the power she could control would definitely surpass all Ninth Order master.
What was with the energy turbulence?
Yang Kai couldn’t help recalling the scene he had just witnessed. The Yang and Yin Force seemed to have lost control and began to disperse into the Chaotic Dead Territory, causing a large amount of Yang and Yin Force to appear and swallowed by the Small Stone Race.
Judging from the large number and overall size of the Small Stone Race in the Chaotic Dead Territory, this kind of loss of control was definitely not the first time, but happened many times.
At the same time, because Big Brother Huang and Big Sister Lan were in a state where their strengths were being harmonized, the Small Stone Race in the Chaotic Dead Territory no longer had any restrictions and had also lost control, restoring their original nature. This was the reason why Yang Kai had come to the Chaotic Dead Territory and seen so many Small Stone Race members fighting each other.
The Yang and Yin Force had lost control many times, which meant that the frequency was very high. Perhaps he could observe it for a while, but it shouldn’t take long…
With such a decision in mind, Yang Kai decided to spend a year observing the situation here in order to obtain more information.
As time passed, Yang Kai remained hidden in the void, observing the situation around Zhang Ruoxi.
Just as he had expected, the frequency at which the energy was out of control was indeed very high. In less than a year, about three months later, the originally stable and hazy fog suddenly began to fluctuate. At this moment, Zhang Ruoxi, who seemed to be sleeping in the middle of the fog, let out an unconscious moan. From the sound of it, it seemed like she was enduring unbearable pain.
At the same time, the Yang and Yin Force that were constantly flowing through the mist also began to stir.
In the blink of an eye, with this fog as the center, a dazzling light began to spread outwards.
A moment later, just like what Yang Kai had seen three months ago, the entire Chaotic Dead Territory was filled with the power of Yin and Yang, causing countless Small Stone Race members to flock to it.
After personally witnessing this scene, Yang Kai understood.
The reason why the Yang and Yin Force had gone out of control was because Zhang Ruoxi was too weak…
Of course, her current cultivation of Eighth Order Open Heaven had nothing to do with the word weak, but compared to Burning Shine and Nether Glimmer, she was far too weak.
Even though she possessed the Heaven's Order Bloodline, it was still difficult for her to fully control the power that was born at the beginning of this world, so when she tried to harmonize the Yin and Yang forces, some situations would occur that were difficult to control.
Once such a situation occurred, the power of Yin and Yang would lose control and disperse, resulting in the massive Small Stone Race in the Chaotic Dead Territory.
Fortunately, the Heaven's Order Bloodline was truly amazing, especially when it came to harmonizing the Yang and Yin Force. Every time the energy went out of control, it wouldn’t last too long before it stabilized again.
After observing the loss of control of this force from a close distance, Yang Kai was finally able to determine the exact number of Ninth Order Small Stone Race members.
When the power went out of control, the Ninth Order Small Stone Race members who had been hiding in the fog also appeared.
Yang Kai immediately counted eight!
There were a total of eight of them!
How many Ninth Order Open Heaven masters were there in the Human Race? Including Shi Dazhuang and Tang Tao who had recently broken through in the last twenty years, there were only twelve of them, but this Ninth Order Small Stone Race actually had eight.
If he could pull these eight Small Stone Race members onto the battlefield, who knew how many losses the Human Race could reduce!
Wiping his mouth, Yang Kai ruthlessly cut off his thoughts about these Ninth Order Small Stone Race and flew off into the void.
He had come here with the intention of bringing Zhang Ruoxi out so that she could play some role on the battlefield, but now it seemed that this plan would not work. At the very least, until she successfully condensed the Yang and Yin Force, it would be impossible for her to emerge.
The Ninth Order Small Stone Race could only be seen but not taken away. Since that was the case, Yang Kai could only take in a few more Small Stone Race armies, especially the Eighth Order Small Stone Race. This was the main reason he had come here.
His speed was extremely fast, and as he activated his Space Principle, he arrived at a battlefield in the blink of an eye.
At this moment, not long after the Yang and Yin Force erupted, a group of Small Stone Race members surrounded a mass of Yang Force and began gnawing on it. Yang Kai flashed over, opened his Small Universe, and activated his Sun and Moon Marks while shouting, “Move aside, let me come!”
He didn’t care if the Small Stone Race understood or not, he just wanted to vent his frustration.
The Sun and Moon Marks had no effect when facing a Ninth Order Small Stone Race, but when it came to commanding these ordinary Small Stone Race, it was always successful.
With a single command, the Small Stone Race scattered, revealing the Yang Force surrounded by them. The power they manifested should have been the same as Big Brother Huang’s true form, but it was much smaller in size. However, after being eaten by the Small Stone Race, it now looked like a Phoenix Clan with broken wings.
Yang Kai didn’t mind and directly placed it into his Small Universe.
Immediately after, he rushed to the next location.
After so many years of war, the Human Race’s demand for Yellow Crystals and Blue Crystals had become extremely high. Yang Kai had originally wanted to ask Big Brother Huang and Big Sister Lan for more, but now that he couldn’t, he could only use this method to collect some.
As such, he had to act quickly, otherwise the omnipresent Small Stone Race would soon be able to swallow up all of the Yang and Yin Force.
For a time, Yang Kai’s figure shuttled back and forth through the void, borrowing the power of the Sun and Moon Marks to force all of the Small Stone Race to retreat and obediently hand over their food to him.
Even if Yang Kai’s speed was fast enough, he had no choice but to stop after an incense stick’s worth of time, because apart from the Yang and Yin Force he had absorbed into the Small Universe, everything else that had leaked out had been eaten by the Small Stone Race.
Many Small Stone Race members had become stronger, even breaking through their own limits.
Standing still, Yang Kai examined his harvest. Inside the Small Universe, the Yang and Yin Force he had sealed had already transformed into pieces of Yellow Crystal and Blue Crystal, some as small as a fist, and some as large as a house. His harvest was not small, but it was definitely not much.
The main reason was that Yang Kai’s movements were a bit slow, he had to carefully observe the situation on Zhang Ruoxi’s side, causing the Yang and Yin Force to be devoured by the Small Stone Race.
Yang Kai naturally wouldn’t be satisfied with such a small harvest, so he immediately became enraged and once again flew into the sky.
Small Universe’s door continued to remain open. In any case, with the World Tree Subtree sealing his Small Universe, Yang Kai wasn’t worried about his own strength leaking. If it was an ordinary Open Heaven Stage cultivator, doing so would be quite risky. The energy flowing out of the door was a result of hard work and cultivation, so it would weaken after a while.
The power of the Sun and Moon Marks on the back of his hand was also constantly activated.
Every time he arrived, the autumn wind would sweep away the fallen leaves, and Yang Kai would collect all the Small Stone Race members he thought were compatible with the conditions.
The so-called conditions were none other than those who were comparable to the Human Race’s Open Heaven Stage masters. Those Small Stone Race masters who didn’t even have strength equivalent to a Third Order Open Heaven, even if Yang Kai accepted them, they would still be useless. If he were to put them on the battlefield, he would just be sending them to their deaths, so he might as well let them continue growing stronger here.
