“It should take us less than half a day to reach Xuanzhou City.”
In the spacious carriage, Yi Qiushui’s eyes shifted to Zhou Yuan as she spoke softly, a very well-disguised relief in her voice. It was obvious that this journey placed a lot of pressure on her.
Next to Yi Qiushui sat Yi Dong’er, who was holding her hand. She stared unblinkingly at Zhou Yuan with her huge eyes wide with admiration. She had also learnt about the great battle that happened last night.
Zhou Yuan nodded. He also felt a little uncomfortable sitting in the carriage. Even Mu Zhao had never received such treatment before.
“We really have to thank brother Zhou Yuan. Our Yi clan will not forget this.” Yi Qiushui smiled.
“I was just paid to take care of a problem.” Zhou Yuan shook his head and refused to take credit. If he weren’t lucky enough to meet the Yi clan sisters, his situation would have been much worse.
If he were a little unlucky, it was really possible that the Genesis beasts in the wild would have swallowed him alive.
“If brother Zhou doesn’t mind, you can call me Qiushui.” Yi Qiushui lifted a teapot with her small beautiful hand and elegantly poured Zhou Yuan a cup of fragrant tea.
“Of course, if brother Zhou feels that I have been unfriendly towards you before and is unhappy about it, I can apologise.”
Zhou Yuan awkwardly scratched his head. He had realized that Yi Qiushui was indeed not a simple person and could send whatever he wanted to say back into his stomach with just a few words. It was no wonder Qiu Ji said that Yi Qiushui played a huge role in stabilising Xiaoxuan Province so quickly for the Yi clan.
And Zhou Yuan also understood that Yi Qiushui’s attitude towards him had changed drastically. The main reason was because the strength that he had shown had been recognised.
However, he didn’t feel that Yi Qiushui acted pragmatically. Nobody in the world would act nice for no reason, not to mention that he and Yi Qiushui had just met.
But Zhou Yuan didn’t think too much about it. He smiled and nodded. “Okay, Qiushui.”
Yi Qiushui intended to befriend him, in the same way that Zhou Yuan also thought she was a person worth being friends with. Moreover, it would be good for him to meet a trustworthy friend.
Yi Qiushui gave a faint smile. Her beautiful eyes and face looked more stunning than usual. It was obvious that she was in a very good mood because she knew that, from Zhou Yuan’s tone of voice, they had become friends.
She was very curious about Zhou Yuan, a person who had come from another heaven and had shown amazing talent.
“Qiushui...I recently arrived in Tianyuan Region and have no knowledge whatsoever of the situation here. I was hoping you could tell me in case I offend people that I shouldn’t.” Zhou Yuan smiled calmly.
After furthering his relationship with Yi Qiushui, he could then come to understand the current situation in Tianyuan Region from her, which was also his purpose of finding her today. He needed to draw up a plan before arriving in Xuanzhou City.
Yi Qiushui wasn’t surprised. After all, Zhou Yuan was from another heaven and had come to an unfamiliar place. The most important task for him was naturally to find out the distribution of forces here.
“Tianyuan Region was created by supreme sovereign Cang Yuan. This, you probably already know...” Yi Qiushui revealed a reverent expression on her beautiful face when she mentioned the supreme sovereign Cang Yuan.
“Unfortunately, Lord Cang Yuan left Hunyuan Heaven many years ago, and there still hasn’t been any news about him, even till now. There are even rumours that he has passed away...” Yi Qiushui sighed. His disappearance was the main reason for the turbulence all these years.
“Since Lord Cang Yuan has been missing for many years, who is currently in charge of Tianyuan Region?” Zhou Yuan asked.
“Under Lord Cang Yuan is the Founding Members Court, and when the supreme sovereign isn’t around, the Founding Members Court will oversee Tianyuan Region. There are currently five seats in the Founding Members Court.
“Under the Founding Members Court are a group of elders, and then below them are the 900 prefectures of Tianyuan Region. Every prefecture has its own Prefecture Lord, and our Xiaoxuan Province is one of the prefectures.”
“Nine hundred prefectures?” Zhou Yuan exclaimed. There were 900 prefectures similar to Xiaoxuan Province in Tianyuan Region? Isn’t Tianyuan Region too vast?
According to his estimate, the power of a single region could most likely compete with the entire Cangxuan Heaven. What’s more, there were eight other huge and monstrous regions similar to Tianyuan Region in Hunyuan Heaven!
Given its strength, no wonder it was the strongest heaven. It was not a surprise that it was able to become the main camp that fought against the sacred race.
Zhou Yuan narrowed his eyes in deep thought, and asked again a moment later, “Who are the five seats in the Founding Members Court?”
Yi Qiushui stretched out her slender fingers and counted one by one, “The Heavenly Spirit Sect, the White clan, the Profound Crystal clan and the Wood clan...these four great factions founded Tianyuan Region with supreme sovereign Cang Yuan. They all have deep backgrounds and foundations, and the bloodlines of the three clans originated from Saint experts. Although these Saints have already fallen, their bloodlines are still as extraordinary as before.”
Zhou Yuan’s eyes lit up. There had been Saint experts in the White clan, the Profound Crystal clan and the Wood clan in the past? This was indeed remarkable. After all, in the entire Cangxuan Heaven, patriarch Cang Xuan was the only Saint expert that had appeared!
“Who is the last one?”
“The last one is Lord Chi Jing.” Yi Qiushui smiled. When she mentioned Lord Chi Jing, there was evidently a reverent expression on her face.
“Chi Jing?” Zhou Yuan was a little surprised because this was the only one of the five founding members with their own name.
From Zhou Yuan’s expression, Yi Qiushui knew what he was thinking, and she immediately chuckled. “Lord Chi Jing does not need the backing of any faction because her master is supreme sovereign Cang Yuan. She is one of Lord Cang Yuan’s two disciples.”
When talking about Chi Jing, Zhou Yuan could see the yearning and respect on Yi Qiushui’s stunning face.
Zhou Yuan’s eyes also flickered with a glimmer of excitement because his question had struck a key point!
But then he felt something was wrong, and he couldn’t help but ask, “She? Is this great disciple of Lord Cang Yuan a woman?”
Didn’t master Cang Yuan say that he only had two senior brothers?!
Yi Qiushui cast an annoyed glance at Zhou Yuan. “So what if she’s a woman? You look down on women?”
It should be said that all the girls of the entire Tianyuan Region worshipped Chi Jing and saw her as their goal, including her, Yi Qiushui!
Zhou Yuan looked bewildered. Just what was this?
It was not a senior brother but a senior sister?!
