Zhou Yuan’s attack was like a flash of lightning. The feeling it gave off was as though it had ended before it had begun.
So when the countless people in Xuanzhou City heard the movement on his side, they cast a puzzled glance over only to see deep cracks spreading across the ground...and Qiu Ling lying on the ground covered in blood and struggling to get up.
As a result, the exclamations of astonishment that Mo Yuan had caused came to a halt.
What happened? Why was Qiu Ling lying on the ground? What did Zhou Yuan do?
Countless people were asking these three questions in their minds.
But fortunately, someone had witnessed the quick scene. “It seems that Zhou Yuan attacked and then defeated Qiu Ling in one punch?”
The voice trembled with strong uncertainty, and he evidently seemed to wonder whether what he saw was wrong.
But the savage traces on the ground revealed everything clearly.
His voice caused silence to fall once again. Numerous people stared at the young figure on the battlefield who had almost been ignored since the beginning.
The people of the Yi clan, who were all low-spirited because of Yi Qiushui and Li Zhixuan’s defeat, all stared at the scene in shocked disbelief.
Even Yi Qianji and Liu Tianying’s eyes were shaking.
“Zhou Yuan managed to beat Qiu Ling with one punch?” Liu Tianying couldn’t help but ask.
It should be said that even though Qiu Ling wasn’t as strong as Mo Yuan, he could absolutely be regarded as a heaven pride. In time, he might even be ranked on the Divine Dwelling List. Who would have thought that he didn’t even have the chance to counter Zhou Yuan’s attack?
How strong was Zhou Yuan’s Genesis Qi foundation? More importantly, Zhou Yuan was only at the intermediate Divine Dwelling stage!
Being able to defeat an expert of the advanced Divine Dwelling stage like Qiu Ling while in the intermediate Divine Dwelling stage was rarely heard of even in the entire Hunyuan Heaven.
A person like him would most likely be ranked on the Divine Dwelling List once they stepped into the advanced Divine Dwelling stage. With a little training, he could even possibly take the list’s top spot.
But it was also because of this that Yi Qianji and Liu Tianying, two Heavenly Sun stage experts, couldn’t help feeling dumbfounded by the situation. How could they have overlooked such a powerful person?
It should be said that they both thought that Zhou Yuan didn’t dare to budge an inch due to fear. But now, looking back, it was clear that Zhou Yuan was too lazy to make a move.
It was only now that Liu Ming and the other young men and women of the Yi clan recovered from their shock. Hearing the conversation between Yi Qianji and Liu Tianying, they flushed with embarrassment for a moment.
Especially Liu Ming. She couldn’t stand Yi Qiushui attaching so much importance to Zhou Yuan, so she had even mocked him before. But now it was obvious that she was too shallow and hadn’t recognised his true strength.
Having witnessed the fearful power in Zhou Yuan’s mighty punch that defeated Qiu Ling, no matter how arrogant she was, she couldn’t find any reason to act arrogant anymore because she knew very well that Qiu Ling was similar in strength to her brother Liu Zhixuan. Since Zhou Yuan could defeat Qiu Ling with one punch, he could naturally beat her brother Liu Zhixuan.
“He, he concealed his strength too well.” Liu Ming flushed with embarrassment.
Yi Qianji and Liu Tianying both nodded. “I didn’t expect there to be a heaven pride like him in another heaven.”
Immediately afterwards, both were a little excited, and the previous gloomy atmosphere faded. “If this is the case, the Yi clan might not necessarily lose.”
From the power of that punch, they knew that Zhou Yuan was qualified to go against Mo Yuan.
The Yi clan might not necessarily lose the Prefecture Lord Battle today!
Compared to the Yi clan’s relief, everybody on the Qiu clan’s side didn’t look so good. The head of the Qiu clan, Qiu Long, was even staring at Zhou Yuan in fury.
“That little trash really knows how to conceal his strength,” he uttered darkly.
How could Qiu Long not be enraged after seeing Zhou Yuan ruin the big picture?
“Patriarch, don’t worry. Although we have underestimated that kid’s strength, Mo Yuan is still here,” an elder of the Qiu clan comforted.
Qiu Long nodded coldly. With Mo Yuan present, although Zhou Yuan had surprised everybody with his strength, he shouldn’t be able to turn the tides.
“Hmph, after this, be sure to make that little trash pay the price!” Qiu Long’s voice was filled with strong killing intent, but there was also a hint of fear. Although Zhou Yuan was considered nothing at this moment, once he made a breakthrough to the Heavenly Sun stage, he could be trouble for the Qiu clan.
So now that they had offended him, they had to find a way to completely eliminate any future trouble.
“Haha, he’ll die at Mo Yuan’s hands very soon.” The elder of the Qiu clan laughed.
Qiu Long gently nodded. Mo Yuan had previously suppressed both Yi Qiushui and Liu Zhixuan alone. The combat strength he had shown was indeed far beyond the advanced Divine Dwelling stage.
Therefore, he believed that Mo Yuan should have no problem suppressing Zhou Yuan.
Deep in a pit, Yi Qiushui wiped the blood from the corners of her mouth, struggling to stand up. She had evidently suffered a heavy blow and no longer had the power to fight.
But at this moment she couldn’t care about herself. Her beautiful eyes looked in the direction of the slender figure in the distance, her heart surging with emotions.
She had also witnessed Zhou Yuan’s attack.
“Qiushui has good eyes to have found such a helper,” Liu Zhixuan remarked bitterly.
Even if he was arrogant and proud, when he saw Zhou Yuan’s thunderous method, he also understood that Zhou Yuan was far superior to him. It was no wonder that Yi Qiushui had thought so highly of Zhou Yuan.
Yi Qiushui pursed her lips and smiled. Everyone thought that she had good insight, but she in fact had only taken a gamble. Even she wasn’t sure if Zhou Yuan was concealing his strength.
But it seemed her instincts were right.
Although she also didn’t know whether Zhou Yuan could win against the incomparably fierce Mo Yuan, he at least still gave them a little hope.
Zhou Yuan also cast his gaze over from the distance. He looked at Yi Qiushui and seemed to be smiling. Then, his body rose into the air under countless watchful gazes.
He stood opposite Mo Yuan from a distance.
Mo Yuan leaned his iron cudgel across his shoulders, making his body seem extremely small and thin, but at that moment there was most likely nobody who dared to underestimate the frightening power contained in his body. He glanced at the place where Qiu Ling was defeated below and then grinned curiously at Zhou Yuan, somewhat interested.
“I didn’t think I would make an oversight, but you’re the most cunning person in this Prefecture Lord battle.
“Hahaha, but this makes it more interesting!”
Mo Yuan lifted his head and laughed heartily. He was overflowing with aggressive arrogance as he slowly lifted the black iron cudgel and pointed to Zhou Yuan from a distance.
“I haven’t really started yet, but those two couldn’t hold on. I wonder how long you will last?”
At this moment, Mo Yuan was really like a ferocious demon ape, arrogant and domineering.
However, opposite him Zhou Yuan’s expression was calm and indifferent. Azure-gold Genesis Qi pulsed around his body, faintly transforming into an azure serpent with earthshaking power.
He clenched his hand, and a tremendous black mottled brush appeared in his hands.
“I won’t disappoint you.”
In this moment, the clash between the azure serpent and demonic ape triggered monstrous killing intent.
