Hearing this, Shan Qing Luo was stunned for a moment before turning her head to look at it, four eyes meeting each other as she called out excitedly, “Foster Mother!”
Back when she and Bi Luo had left the Central Capital World, they had passed through an extremely strange altar and directly teleported to the Monster Emperor Star. If it weren’t for Chi Yue taking care of them and even taking her as her adopted daughter, with their strength at that time, they would have likely died.
To her, Chi Yue was not only her savior, but also her second parent. Before coming here, she knew that she would be able to see Chi Yue, so she was filled with anticipation.
On the other side, Ai Ou also stared at Xue Yue in a daze, the latter’s eyes turning red as she called out softly, “Father!”
Suppressing his excitement, Ai Ou nodded and said, “Good, good, good, good.” Turning his head to look at Yang Kai, all of his previous grievances had disappeared. Yang Kai had already returned to the Star Field and brought his daughter here, what else could he say?
Although Su Yan and Xia Ning Chang were not close with them, they had not seen Guizu for many years, so they naturally went up to greet him.
Gu Cangyun stared at him helplessly, stammering, “Palace Master, you’ve returned to the Star Field?” Chi Yue and Ai Ou could call Yang Kai by his name or even address him as a brat, but Gu Cangyun didn’t have the courage to call him the same way.
“Yes, I just returned from there,” Yang Kai smiled.
“Then what about my Sword Union…” Gu Cangyun looked at Yang Kai expectantly.
“Senior Gu, don’t worry, I’ve brought Brother Gu along with many of your Sword Union’s men.”
“Where?” Gu Cangyun’s eyes lit up.
“Don’t worry, we’ll see them soon.” More than a hundred thousand people were gathered in a certain place in the Mysterious Small Boundary, so Yang Kai couldn’t find Gu Jianxin or the Sword Union. The reason he could easily summon Su Yan and the others was naturally because they weren’t in the same place as the others.
“Nanmen Dajun, bring me the Mountain Wave Diagram,” Yang Kai raised his hand.
Nanmen Dajun didn’t know what his intentions were, but he didn’t hesitate and quickly took out the Mountain Wave Diagram and opened it. In an instant, the map lit up and a miniature version of High Heaven Palace appeared in front of their eyes. The mountain range rose and fell, and even the smallest stream and hill could be clearly seen.
This thing had been created by Nanmen Dajun and Hou Yu, so it was naturally extremely amazing.
Yang Kai pointed to a few mountains and asked, “Are there people living here?”
Bian Yuqing glanced over and said, “That’s right, Thousand Leaves Peak is where Old Man Ye Hen and the people from Thousand Leaves Sect live. Five Saint Peak is where Chi Yue and the others live…” She had been in High Heaven Palace for more than ten years, so she naturally knew the distribution of people in the palace.
Yang Kai nodded and said, “There will be a lot of people coming out later, I need you to settle them down.”
“How many?” Bian Yuqing asked.
“A hundred thousand!”
As soon as these words came out, everyone sucked in a breath of cold air. High Heaven Palace had always been small in number, and Yang Kai had no intention of accepting a large number of disciples. Since High Heaven Palace was established, it seemed that it had always been closed off from the outside world, so no one knew what Yang Kai’s intentions were. It was only at this moment that they realized he was preparing for today.
“With so many people, I need some help,” Bian Yuqing said.
“En, you can call people from Thousand Leaves Sect over,” Yang Kai nodded, “I’ll get them out first.”
Bian Yuqing immediately took out her Communication Compass and poured her Divine Sense into it, obviously summoning more people.
On the other hand, Yang Kai summoned his Mysterious Boundary Bead. As the black Qi wrapped around it, a giant tadpole-like mass appeared, opening its black mouth and spreading it across the world.
The terrifying aura emanating from Gun Gun’s body caused the three Monster Kings’ expressions to change slightly. They didn’t even know what this thing was, but it gave off an extremely dangerous feeling.
From the mouth, a figure rushed out and looked around in shock. It was none other than Meng Wuya.
The rich World Energy all around him made him feel like he was in a dream. In the Star Field, where Shadowed Star High Heaven Sect was located, the World Energy was second to none, but compared to this place, it was like the difference between the clouds and mud.
He didn’t even need to circulate his cultivation technique to feel the Spirit Qi flowing into his body through his pores, making him feel comfortable.
Another figure emerged from Gun Gun’s mouth, a third, a fourth…
Everyone was the same.
Yang Kai said, “Everyone, please don’t stop and walk forward. There are still people coming out.”
With his reminder, the group of people who came out first came to their senses and looked at each other, all of them seeing the excitement in each other’s eyes. They had long received news that this trip was to follow Yang Kai to a higher level world called Star Boundary, and now it seemed that they had arrived safely.
It was just that they had never imagined that this so-called Star Boundary would have such a luxurious cultivation environment.
Ordinary places in the Star Boundary naturally wouldn’t be like this. Even if it was better than the Star Field, it wouldn’t make one feel like the difference between heaven and earth. However, this was High Heaven Palace, the ruins of Asking Passion Sect, one of the top Heavenly Abodes in the North Region, so how could the Spirit Qi not be rich?
A steady stream of people emerged from Gun Gun’s mouth, and soon the square was filled with people.
At this moment, the Thousand Leaves Sect’s disciples, led by Ye Hen, also rushed over. There were only a few hundred of them, so when they saw this scene, they were quite shocked.
After asking around, they learned that these people were all from the Lower Planes Star Field and was immediately stunned.
For Star Boundary cultivators, those who came from the Lower Planes Star Field were all elites among elites. If they didn’t die halfway, their chances of reaching the Emperor Realm would be very high. This was because the cultivation environment of the Lower Planes Star Field was far inferior to that of the Star Boundary, and the environment they cultivated in gave them the potential to grow.
It wasn’t that there weren’t any cultivators from the Lower Planes Star Field in the Star Boundary, but they were all scattered, so when had there ever been such a spectacular scene?
Tens of thousands of cultivators appeared on the square while more people walked out. Although these people’s strength wasn’t high, as long as they had enough time, they could certainly become the foundation of High Heaven Palace.
Yang Kai didn’t have the time to chat with others, so he gathered together with Bian Yuqing and pointed towards High Heaven Palace’s Mountain Wave Diagram, discussing the territories and mountain peaks that these people would occupy.
One by one, the Thousand Leaves Sect’s disciples received their orders and left, each of them leading a thousand or two thousand people towards a certain mountain peak.
This busy period lasted for several days, during which Hua Qingsi returned from the Southern Domain. With Hua Qingsi’s assistance, the situation became smoother. Hua Qingsi wore a look of both happiness and distress, occasionally glancing at Yang Kai with a bitter expression.
In the past, although she was the High Heaven Palace Chief Manager Yang Kai had personally conferred upon her, there wasn’t much need for her to handle. High Heaven Palace didn’t have many people, and most of them were Thousand Leaves Sect’s disciples. With Ye Hen overseeing Thousand Leaves Peak, it wasn’t difficult for her to manage it.
Hua Qingsi had been busy these past few years trying to find a way to earn cultivation resources for High Heaven Palace. Her cooperation with the Southern Domain’s Violet Source Chamber of Commerce had allowed her to earn a lot of money, but so what? Without disciples to use, cultivation resources were just a pile of numbers.
As such, her position as Chief Manager was somewhat unworthy of its name.
But now, things were different. Over a hundred thousand disciples had entered High Heaven Palace, and all of them required her to coordinate and arrange their cultivation techniques and resources. Hua Qingsi could foresee that in the next half a year, she would not have any time to rest.
The title of Chief Manager was indeed worthy of its name, but wasn’t this… too tiring? Fortunately, there was still Bian Yuqing to help her solve her problems, otherwise she would have to abandon her responsibilities. Even so, she and Bian Yuqing would definitely not be able to handle the daily lives of more than a hundred thousand people, so they needed to come up with a specific plan.
The last group to emerge from the Mysterious Small Boundary was a group of Monster Race elites from the Monster Emperor Star. There were about three thousand of them, with Yu Xiong at the head, each of them exuding a strong Monster Qi.
Yang Kai waved his hand, “Several Monster Kings, I’ll leave them to you.”
The Monster Race’s cultivation was different from that of human race, so it was naturally best for the three Monster Kings to teach them.
Ying Fei, Xi Lei, and Xie Wuwei all wore smiles as they stared at the three thousand Monster Race masters, causing all of them to shiver.
They could be considered the cream of the crop on the Monster Emperor Star, elites who had survived the chaos of the Myriad Beast Mountain Villa, but in front of the auras of the three Monster Kings, they felt like infants. No one knew what realm the three Monster Kings had reached, but they didn’t doubt that these three Monster Beasts could kill them with a single breath.
“I finally have something to do,” Xi Lei chuckled, his laughter like thunder.
Like Hua Qingsi, the three of them had been idling ever since they arrived at High Heaven Palace. Their greatest joy was playing hide and seek with Hou Yu, but after being captured countless times by them, Hou Yu had given up on trying to escape and instead focused on refining treasures for High Heaven Palace.
In her words, she was wasting High Heaven Palace’s resources to make Yang Kai’s heart ache, but she wouldn’t ruin her reputation as an Emperor Artifact Refiner Master. The artifacts she refined were naturally the best of the best.
Currently, in High Heaven Palace’s treasury, there were countless finished artifacts of various grades. If she knew that Yang Kai would bring a hundred thousand disciples here today and allow these artifacts to have some use, she wouldn’t be in the mood to continue wasting materials to make them.
Without Hou Yu, the three Monster Kings were even more bored.
Yang Kai giving them three thousand Monster Race masters was exactly what they wanted, so they could at least do something for Yang Kai, at least they wouldn’t have to stay here for free.
“Little ones, follow me.” Xi Lei waved his hand and took the lead to fly towards a large mountain deep inside High Heaven Palace.
The three thousand Monster Race masters glanced at each other, somewhat confused.
Chi Yue shouted, “What are you waiting for? Scram!”
It was only now that the Monster Race discovered Chi Yue’s existence that they were both surprised and delighted. In the past, before Chi Yue left the Star Field, she was the only Monster King on the Monster Emperor Star, but her status as a Monster King was incomparable to the likes of Xi Lei.
However, with a single command from her, the three thousand Monster Race cultivators still obediently followed Xi Lei.
