Berserk and violent Genesis Qi erupted from Zhou Yuan’s body. It could be seen that his heart was churning like the sea at that moment.
However, the eruption of Genesis Qi did not last long. Zhou Yuan’s eyes gradually calmed, and his Genesis Qi faded. After all, he had been expecting this day.
“Two years. King Wu is finally going to make a move?”
Zhou Yuan’s eyes were piercing cold. This, for him, wasn’t considered a bad thing. He had originally thought that this moment would come much earlier.
And in these two years, Zhou Yuan, from a youngster of the Heaven Gate stage, had become a top expert among the young generation of the Shengzhou Continent.
It seemed that he should return to the Great Zhou.
The Great Wu was strong, and King Wu was an expert of the Divine Dwelling stage. Nobody in the Great Zhou was a match for him. In a conflict between empires, an expert of the Divine Dwelling stage was enough to play a decisive role.
Zhou Yuan drew a deep breath, lifting his head to look at sect master Qing Yang.
“Are you planning to go back?” sect master Qing Yang asked.
Zhou Yuan nodded. “Sect Master, I came to the Cangxuan Sect in order to train and get revenge for my Great Zhou. I must return this time.”
Sect master Qing Yang slightly nodded. “This is important to your empire, so I won’t stop you.
“But you also mustn’t be impatient. The Great Wu is invading the Great Zhou. This appears to be a dispute between two empires, but you are a disciple of the Cangxuan Sect and Wu Huang is a disciple of the Sacred Palace.
“The Great Wu chose to take action at this time, which was very likely instructed by the Sacred Palace.”
Zhou Yuan suddenly knitted his brows in a frown. “I don’t have much entanglement with the palace master of the Sacred Palace. Given his identity, would he care about the conflicts between two little empires?”
The Sacred Palace’s palace master was one of the most powerful existences of the Cangxuan Sect, and in his eyes both the Great Zhou and the Great Wu were as inferior as ants.
The Great Wu could suppress the Great Zhou for so many years by relying on King Wu, who was at the Divine Dwelling stage. But what was the Divine Dwelling stage to the Sacred Palace? A Divine Dwelling stage expert couldn’t even become an elder.
Usually the Sacred Palace’s palace master would find it a waste of time to care about such trivial matters.
Sect master Qing Yang took a deep look. “If you’re just an ordinary disciple of the Cangxuan Sect, then perhaps this matter is indeed only a trivial matter, but you are now a famous disciple of my Cangxuan Sect. Moreover, you made the Sacred Palace suffer in the Mythic Utopia, so if the Sacred Palace wants to retaliate, it is very possible that they would do something.
“And from the information that the Cangxuan Sect has received, there indeed seems to be movements on the Sacred Palace’s side.”
If this was the case, then the dispute between the Great Wu and the Great Zhou had become a game between two major sects, the Sacred Palace and the Cangxuan Sect.
This really was a tricky issue.
“You don’t have to worry about this matter. The majority of the sects have their own rules, and any hatred and grievances that disciples have should be resolved by the disciples themselves and the sect can’t intervene,” sect master Qing Yang explained.
“If the Sacred Palace breaks the rules, then the Cangxuan Sect won’t stand by and watch.”
The reason that Zhou Yuan had killed so many Chosen in the Mythic Utopia was for the Cangxuan Sect. This had made the Sacred Palace lose face, so if the Cangxuan Sect didn’t support Zhou Yuan, it would be too heartless.
Zhou Yuan was incredibly moved to hear this, because it was only with the unwavering support of the Cangxuan Sect would he be able to fight against the Sacred Palace.
If not, he would be nothing more than an ant trying to shake a tree.
If the Cangxuan Sect chose to fight against the Sacred Palace, the movement would be incredibly huge. Zhou Yuan would have been really nervous if sect master Qing Yang didn’t say anything. After all, starting a fight against the Sacred Palace for a little disciple would not be beneficial after considering the costs and benefits.
“Thank you, Sect Master.” Zhou Yuan bowed deeply.
Sect master Qing Yang smiled and said in a gentle tone, “Little guy, don’t think too much. You just need to remember you are a disciple that risked his life for my Cangxuan Sect. We will never stand and watch you suffer.
“The Sacred Palace is strong, but my Cangxuan Sect isn’t weak. If the Sacred Palace’s palace master dares to break the rules, then my Cangxuan Sect will fight with everything we have to pull the Sacred Palace down from its horse. We’ll see who will be the winner in the end.”
Sect master Qing Yang’s voice was gentle and calm, his manner refined and scholarly. However, there was a chill that was hidden in his calm statement, like this chill was hidden beneath a thundercloud.
Chu Qing, Li Qingchan, Kong Sheng and the other Chosen stared at sect master Qing Yang in surprise. It was evidently the first time they saw the gentle and always smiling sect master like this.
A smile also spread across peak master Lianyi’s beautiful face. “Senior brother, I haven’t seen you like this in many years. Back then you had the worst temper out of us all, but after you became sect master, you’re just like an old man.”
“Our senior brother is the master of a sect, and has many things to worry about. He naturally isn’t the same as before,” peak master Ling Jun said.
“What do you know?” Peak master Lianyi snorted, shooting a cold glance at his face.
Peak master Ling Jun could only helplessly shake his head. He had long gotten used to the way peak master Lianyi treated him over the years.
“You only need to focus on the conflict between your Great Zhou and the Great Wu. You don’t need to worry about other matters. I will get in touch with the Sacred Palace’s palace master to see what he really wants. If he really wants to fight against my Cangxuan Sect, we will accompany him,” sect master Qing Yang reassured Zhou Yuan. “But if the Sacred Palace doesn’t intend to break the rules, King Wu would probably still be a huge problem for you.”
If the Sacred Palace did not break any rules, the Cangxuan Sect naturally couldn’t intervene and Zhou Yuan would have no choice but to face King Wu alone.
Although an expert of the Divine Dwelling stage was considered nothing in sect master Qing Yang’s eyes, for youngsters like Zhou Yuan, the Divine Dwelling stage was a real enemy.
Once one stepped into the Divine Dwelling stage, one could truly be said to have reached the next level on the path of cultivation.
Even the worst person of the Divine Dwelling stage would have over half a million Genesis Qi stars, which far exceeded Zhou Yuan’s current foundation of 180,000 Genesis Qi stars.
And with this huge gap, any moves were useless.
Zhou Yuan gently nodded. “Don’t worry, Sect Master. Wu Huang is my enemy, and I will deal with him.”
Sect master Qing Yang no longer questioned further, and he said, “When do you plan to leave?”
“A war between empires goes on for a long time. Although the Great Wu has only started to dispatch troops, there is still some time before the most critical time. And during this period of time, I want to do something.”
“What do you want to do?” sect master Qing Yang asked curiously.
Zhou Yuan glanced at Chu Qing, Kong Sheng, Li Qingchan and the others apologetically. “I am pressed for time. In order to enhance my battle strength, I have no other choice but to offend you, senior brothers and sisters.”
Chu Qing, Li Qingchan and the others were all taken aback.
Zhou Yuan took a step back, his voice loud and clear like a clap of thunder. It rumbled through the Cangxuan Sect.
“Saint Genesis Peak’s Zhou Yuan wants to initiate a competition battle against the Chosen of the six peaks. I hope the senior brothers and sisters will agree!”
This statement shocked countless disciples within the Cangxuan Sect.
A Chosen challenge!
Zhou Yuan wanted to witness the six Cangxuan techniques from the Chosen of the six peaks!
