The world was still and silent.
Everyone cast their eyes to the ancient stone seal floating above Zhou Yuan in stunned silence because they knew what the stone seal represented.
It was the Cangxuan Saint Stamp!
It was unknown how long the stilled atmosphere lasted before it was broken by deafening cheers from every corner of Cangxuan Heaven.
Who would have thought that the legendary Cangxuan Saint Stamp would appear at the most critical juncture?!
Countless people wept tears of joy.
Sect master Qing Yang and the others similarly stared dazedly at the ancient stone seal and their eyes welled up with tears.
“It seemed successful?”
Rubbing their eyes, they gathered their spirit. From the looks of it, Zhou Yuan’s plan had succeeded —the Cangxuan Saint Stamp fragments were successfully combined and it even actively protected Zhou Yuan.
This was undoubtedly a glimmer of hope for the Cangxuan Heaven beings in despair.
Palace master Sheng Yuan’s face that looked uninterested all along suddenly grew overcast. He coldly looked at Zhou Yuan, who was rapidly recovering under the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s protection.
I clearly blocked the Cangxuan Saint Stamp. Also, the Cangxuan Saint Stamp should have no owner, so why would it protect him?! Palace master Sheng Yuan raged in his heart. Patriarch Cang Xuan is dead and the Cangxuan Saint Stamp was left ownerness, but it actively wants to protect Zhou Yuan. What does that mean? It means that it has made a decision! What qualification does he have!? How could a kid who hasn’t even reached the Saint stage receive the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s approval?! Isn’t it strange?!
Enveloped in the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s divine light, Zhou Yuan’s injuries rapidly healed. He slowly came to his feet, peering upwards at palace master Sheng Yuan’s darkened face, as though he knew how infuriated Sheng Yuan was.
“This is the will of people. The Cangxuan Saint Stamp is indeed ownerless, but it is precisely because it doesn’t have an owner’s will that it can act on its own instinct. All beings in Cangxuan Heaven is now praying and cheering for me, and those will of people influenced the Cangxuan Saint Stamp to approach me.” Cracking his neck, Zhou Yuan felt his strength restored. He grinned. “But someone like you won’t understand this.”
Sheng Yuan’s eyes turned icy-cold. He drew a deep breath and said indifferently, “Zhou Yuan, do you think you can change things with the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s protection? After all, you still haven’t reached the Saint stage and it is impossible for you to control the Cangxuan Saint Stamp. Do you think you can use its power to compete with me? Once I kill you and take possession of the Cangxuan Saint Stamp, it naturally will acknowledge allegiance to me. At that time, you will know that the so-called will of people is just nonsense and only true power can control everything.”
Monstrous murderous aura erupted from him, and with a flick of his sleeve, his chilling voice reverberated throughout the world.
The heaven and earth suddenly rumbled and roared as thunderclouds scudded across the sky in a mighty manner. Lightning speedily gathered together to form an endless lightning beast that obscured the entire sky.
Sheng Yuan flicked his finger and sent mighty Saint power pouring into the lightning beast. The beast threw its head back and roared skywards. Unexpectedly, vitality was released from that roar as though the beast was a real living creature.
Studying the lightning beast blazing with mighty Saint power, sect master Qing Yang and many other third Law Domain stage experts couldn’t stop their expressions from changing.
That power was much more terrifying than that of the great sun of Saint power.
“Destroy him!” As Sheng Yuan coldly commanded and flicked his finger, the lightning beast unleashed a thunderous roar that rang throughout the entire Cangxuan Heaven.
The lightning beast sped towards Zhou Yuan, smashing through space.
As the lightning beast dived down, Zhou Yuan’s expression immediately tensed because he felt the terrifying power contained within the beast. He didn’t dare to act careless, and so he stretched his hand out and the Cangxuan Saint Stamp landed in his palm.
“We meet again, old friend. I was forced to break you back then. Please don't blame me.” Zhou Yuan smiled at the Saint Stamp in his hand.
The markings on the Saint Stamp grew even brighter, and Zhou Yuan could distinctly feel he had formed a connection with this world once again.
Earlier, Sheng Yuan removed his connection with Genesis Qi, but now, the Cangxuan Saint Stamp had evidently helped him to repair that connection. Furthermore, that connection was closer than before.
Zhou Yuan felt very strange, as if he had obtained the authority to control this side of the world.
Zhou Yuan clasped the Cangxuan Saint Stamp, feeling the mysterious and wondrous feeling, as though he had completely integrated with this world.
He lifted his hand.
The ground violently quaked, rocks tumbled down and a giant earth dragon unleashed a deafening roar. Twisting and turning, it met the destructive lightning beast head-on.
The lightning beast and earth dragon collided, causing flashes of lightning and rocks shooting everywhere.
However, in the end, both the lightning beast and earth dragon were smashed to pieces and the surrounding space crumbled, becoming lightning sparks and broken stones.
The outcome of the collision drew earthshaking cheers from countless Cangxuan Heaven beings because it was the first time that Zhou Yuan truly blocked Sheng Yuan’s attack.
Sect master Qing Yang and the others also lit up with joy. Previously, Sheng Yuan almost destroyed Zhou Yuan with a casual strike, but that huge gap between Zhou Yuan and Sheng Yuan seemed to have closed with the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s help.
This was undoubtedly great news to Cangxuan Heaven.
Clasping the Cangxuan Saint Stamp, Zhou Yuan slowly floated into the sky and said with a smile, “Although I can't truly control Cangxuan Heaven, you have only just became a Saint. We are the same.”
Sheng Yuan's face turned extremely dark and unpleasant. It never crossed his mind that Zhou Yuan would survive this far. He never thought he couldn’t kill Zhou Yuan even after breaking through to the Saint stage.
This guy is a monster, if I can't kill him, I will have to watch him become stronger and stronger. Sheng Yuan felt extreme regret for not getting rid of Zhou Yuan, the great problem, back then. It was only now that he understood that when he let Zhou Yuan leave Cangxuan Heaven was the same as releasing a dragon into the sea.
Sheng Yuan inhaled deeply, suppressing his emotions. “It’s indeed difficult to know who will win, but you also can’t do anything to me. My control of Saint power is gradually improving, and once I truly master the control of Saint power, you won’t be able to survive anymore. Zhou Yuan, I am willing to make a deal with you here. I will share Cangxuan Heaven equally with you, let’s agree to not disturb each other in the future. What do you say?”
Countless people broke into an uproar. They never thought palace master Sheng Yuan would back down.
However, they couldn’t accept Cangxuan Heaven to be shared with Sheng Yuan. After all, no one wanted to fall into his control.
Many people cast nervous gazes at Zhou Yuan.
Rubbing the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s mottled outer surface, Zhou Yuan was silent for a few breaths. He suddenly smiled. “Sheng Yuan, you said something wrong…”
“What?” Sheng Yuan narrowed his eyes.
Zhou Yuan grinned, showing his pearly white teeth, and his cold voice rang out. “Who said I can’t do anything to you?”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
