The Sacred Palace.
Before the mist-shrouded cliffs, a white robed figure was sat quietly on a blue-green boulder, exuding an indescribable oppressive pressure. It was as if this piece of the world was being suppressed by him.
The white robed figure slowly opened his eyes, revealing his silver pupils that were indifferent and ruthless, like a divine being.
It was Palace Master Sheng Yuan of the Sacred Palace.
“Trash, I wasted so much resources to refine a blood asura body for you but you lost.” Palace Master Sheng Yuan spoke in an indifferent voice.
“The words that Zhou Yuan said are right, a thief will always be a thief and can never become a great weapon.”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan shook his head, but there wasn’t the slightest fury like he had previously shown in the sky above Sacred City. Instead a flicker of unpredictable light flashed across his silver eyes.
“But a loss is a loss, I never had hopes for him anyway.”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan didn’t care in the slightest about Wu Huang’s spirit being destroyed. After all, he was just a little chess piece to him. Even if he had failed it had no impact on his plan.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan flung his robe and an ancient mottled crystal ball appeared right in front of him. The crystal ball was cloudy and seemed unfathomable, like it held mysteries known only to heaven.
“The Sacred Dragon Qi in Wu Huang's body has been obtained by Zhou Yuan...”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan gazed at the chaos inside the crystal ball, his fingers gently flicked, and the chaos trembled.
“Still not enough...”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan smiled slightly. He immediately lifted his head, and his silver eyes seemed to pierce through space and focused on another place.
“But it should be soon...”
Sect Master Qing Yang stood with hands clasped behind his back, deeply gazing at the void.
Behind him, the beautiful face of Peak Master Lianyi was filled with joy. “Zhou Yuan really did well. He even defeated Wu Huang. Sheng Yuan’s face must be very ugly right now, don’t you think so too?”
“That might not be the case.”
Sect Master Qing Yang indifferently said, “Although Sheng Yuan appeared very angry, but somehow, I feel that he has other intentions.”
His brows furrowed again and his gaze drifted off in thought. Since he couldn’t figure out the answer, he only slightly shook his head and continued, “Although Zhou Yuan has won against Wu Huang, he is determined to rush back to the Great Zhou to battle King Wu. This battle will be very dangerous for him.”
The smile faded from Peak Master Lianyi’s face, sighing, “That little guy is very stubborn, if he just takes a step back, it wouldn’t be so dangerous.””
Given his talent, if he endured a little longer, he could have easily killed King Wu once he stepped into the Divine Dwelling stage.
“If he knew how to retreat, he most likely wouldn’t be where he is today.” Sect Master Qing Yang remarked.
“Although it is dangerous, it’s not necessarily a path to death. King Wu is an expert of the Divine Dwelling stage, but Zhou Yuan has reached the peak of the Alpha Origin Stage, plus he has recaptured the Sacred Dragon Qi in Wu Huang’s body. If he can perfectly cultivate it, strengthen his body, then its possible that he may take a huge step forward once again.”
“That’s what the little guy is planning? But it won’t be easy to break through to the Divine Dwelling stage. Chu Qing and others have been preparing for quite some time, but has yet toe even begin to break through.” Peak Master Lianyi exclaimed.
Sect Master Qing Yang laughed, “In normal circumstances, there is indeed a need for a long preparation time. But the present situation has formed a strong pressure. Under such enormous pressure, outstandingly talented people can trigger their great potential.”
“Zhou Yuan used the situation as the pressure to trigger his suppressed potential in order to achieve the goal of breakthrough.”
“This mentality and determination he has are indeed extraordinary.”
Sect Master Qing Yang’s voice was full of admiration.
According to the way of the Genesis Qi, without the desire to succeed in adversity, one definitely would not go far.
Peak Master Lianyi also flushed with admiration. If Zhou Yuan really were able to complete a breakthrough under this pressure and truly step into the Divine Dwelling stage, then the immediate dangerous situation would also be reversed by him in an instant.
“Hopefully this little guy will succeed...”
Sect Master Qing Yang gently nodded, and then raised his head, looking in the direction of the Sacred Palace with narrowed eyes.
Sheng Yuan, the reason you have done so much, is it really just to get back some face?
Or is there another purpose?
If so, then, what is your purpose?
When Zhou Yuan left Distant Saint City and returned to the Cangmang Continent, the great battle between Wu Huang and him had already spread throughout the entire Shengzhou Continent at an astonishing speed.
All the forces were greatly amazed after knowing the result. Zhou Yuan’s performance in that battle could be said to be stunning.
A genius like him, if given more time, would undoubtedly become a top pillar in the Cangxuan Sect in the future, but it was regrettable that Zhou Yuan might not have a future.
Obviously, they were also aware of Zhou Yuan's intention in rushing back to the Cangmang Continent.
In truth, King Wu, a Divine Dwelling stage expert, was considered nothing to all the forces on the Shengzhou Continent. But to Zhou Yuan of the Alpha Origin stage, the Divine Dwelling stage was still something somewhat unattainable, even if he could be called invincible in the Alpha Origin stage.
But that was the Alpha Origin stage.
In the cultivation of Genesis Qi, the Alpha Origin stage can be regarded as a high level. But it was only when one stepped into the Divine Dwelling stage that they would truly be able to appreciate the mysteries of Genesis Qi.
The gap between the two was too tremendous.
Even for Zhou Yuan, who was invincible in the Alpha Origin Stage, wouldn’t find it simple to counter an expert of the Divine Dwelling stage.
Therefore, everyone found it extremely unwise of Zhou Yuan to rush to the Cangmang Continent to fight against Divine Dwelling stage expert King Wu.
But they also understood that the conflict between the Great Zhou and the Great Wu also represented a contest between the Sacred Palace and the Cangxuan Sect. Therefore, no one could give any help, and everything depended on Zhou Yuan.
As to how Zhou Yuan was going to solve the grave situation, all sects and factions of the Shengzhou Continent were very curious.
Therefore, when Zhou Yuan was on his way to the Cangmang Continent, all the various sects and factions of the Shengzhou Continent, including the six major sects, all spectated from afar.
In the vast Cangxuan Heaven, the Cangmang Continent was only a little remote place, but this small place had suddenly gathered the attention of countless experts and sects of the Cangxuan Heaven.
While many eyes were fixed on that place, on the Cangmang Continent----
On the border between the Great Zhou and the Great Wu, beacon fires were lit and the war had started a prairie fire.
The Great Wu army charged into the territory of the Great Zhou with irresistible force, destroying the city walls and plundered the land. That scene was the same as back then.
It was just that back then, King Wu was after the Zhou family’s Sacred Dragon.
And this time, King Wu intended to remove the roots and completely eliminate the Great Zhou. He wanted put an end to the enmity that had been stretched across many years.
