When Zhou Yuan’s icy-cold voice rang out, a cold sneer came to Sheng Yuan’s face. “It seems you have no interest in my proposal. If that's the case, let's play. I’m curious to see what kind of means you have to deal with me.”
His eyes were filled with murderous rage. He already intended to back down but Zhou Yuan acted aggressively in response. Does that kid think he could crush I, Sheng Yuan, who is at the Saint stage? He thinks he can get rid of me with the Cangxuan Saint Stamp’s power?
Zhou Yuan chuckled when he heard Sheng Yuan’s words and shook his head. “It’s not I who will deal with you…”
“What do you mean?” Sheng Yuan narrowed his eyes. What is this kid playing this time?
Bewilderment also came to the faces of sect master Qing Yang and the others. Besides Zhou Yuan, who held the Cangxuan Saint Stamp, who else could threaten Sheng Yuan in the entire Cangxuan Heaven?
Under puzzled gazes, Zhou Yuan smiled and looked emotionally at the ancient stone seal in his hand. “Patriarch, are you going to show up yet?”
Sect master Qing Yang and the others were all stunned by his words. They immediately stared in disbelief at the Cangxuan Saint Stamp.
The patriarch that Zhou Yuan spoke of…could it be…
Amidst surprised and bewildered gazes, flecks of light rose from the Cangxuan Saint Stamp and gathered together to form a silhouette.
It was identical to patriarch Cang Xuan.
Uproar and commotion broke out from the Cangxuan Alliance Army. Who would have thought the former Heaven Master of Cangxuan Heaven would appear!
“Master!” Sect master Qing Yang, Liu Lianyi and other high-level Cangxuan Sect members lit up with joy and surprise.
“Master!” Tears coursed down old Xuan’s aged eyes.
“Cang Xuan?!” Sheng Yuan was also taken aback, but his face soon became overcasted.
Patriarch Cang Xuan, who immediately became the focus of everyone, surveyed the surroundings and sighed emotionally, “I didn't expect it to come to this point.”
“You’ve hid yourself well, patriarch. If I hadn’t reached this stage, I likely will never discover that you left behind such a means,” said Zhou Yuan teasingly.
Patriarch Cang Xuan studied Zhou Yuan for a moment before he chuckled, “My eyes aren’t bad. When I first met you, I already knew you weren’t ordinary.”
“Cang Xuan, haven't you completely dissipated? How come you still have a remnant clone around?!” asked palace master Sheng Yuan sullenly.
He had clearly wiped out all of Cang Xuan’s clones in the great battle ten years ago, but it seemed he didn’t do a good job.
Furthermore, he had carefully examined a part of the Cangxuan Saint Stamp he obtained and he found no traces left behind by patriarch Cang Xuan.
Patriarch Cang Xuan peered at palace master Sheng Yuan and sighed, “Sheng Yuan...I didn't expect you to really reach the Saint stage. My remnant clones were indeed almost all wiped out. This is the last one. I didn’t hide this clone in the Cangxuan Saint Stamp because I know that it wouldn’t be useless since you could avoid all my other means. So, I hid the last clone in the authority of Cangxuan Heaven. Once someone use that power, that person possibly could detect this clone’s existence.”
“I originally thought that when the worst happened and you gained control of the Cangxuan Saint Stamp and attempted to activate that authority power to control Cangxuan Heaven, I could use my last clone to counterattack. Haha, isn’t my last trick unexpected?”
Patriarch Cang Xuan beamed with joy, evidently proud by his hidden trick.
Many Cangxuan Alliance experts exchanged glances with one another, cold sweat gathering on their foreheads. They had no idea that ancestor Cang Xuan was a cunning old man.
Sheng Yuan’s face twitched visibly. How many tricks has that bastard Cang Xuan left behind? Even ordinary Saints wouldn’t be able to do so, but Cang Xuan could because he is the Heaven Master of Cangxuan Heaven.
“But I swear this is definitely my last trick,” said patriarch Cang Xuan seriously.
Sheng Yuan’s face was devoid of expression and he didn’t say anything in response. However, it was obvious that Cang Xuan’s final trick had a psychological impact on him. Even if he won the war, he would be ten times more careful when he tries to control the Cangxuan Saint Stamp in the future.
From a certain point of view, it damaged him psychologically.
Sheng Yuan drew a deep breath, composed his emotions, and said indifferently, “Cang Xuan, stop pretending. You are just a remnant clone. I could destroy your clones when I was just a semi-Saint, let alone now when I have reached the Saint stage. Your little trick has no real damage on me. It just annoyed me a little. The once high and mighty Heaven Master of Cangxuan Heaven can only use such childish means. It’s so pitiful.”
“Ancestor, you are being looked down upon,” said Zhou Yuan with a smile.
Patriarch Cang Xuan cast a helpless look at Zhou Yuan, and then smiled at Sheng Yuan. “In ordinary times, I really can't do anything to you, but what’s different now compared to the battle more than ten years ago is that this kid is no longer a little ant at the Divine Dwelling stage.”
Sheng Yuan sneered, but his eyes gradually glinted warily.
Patriarch Cang Xuan looked at Zhou Yuan and sighed, “It was you who used my power more than a decade ago...Now, I want to use your power.”
Zhou Yuan smiled. “I am glad to help.”
Patriarch Cang Xuan nodded, stretched out his hand, and the Cangxuan Saint Stamp slowly fell into his palm.
“I still need something.”
Patriarch Cang Xuan studied Zhou Yuan and immediately reached into Zhou Yuan’s body. When he pulled his hand out, a seven-colored glass gourd was in his grip.
The seven-colored glass gourd was precisely the product from the integration of the seven Cangxuan arts!
Patriarch Cang Xuan’s eyes were filled with nostalgia as he gazed at the familiar-looking glass gourd. “I divided this into the seven Cangxuan arts back then, but none of my disciples were able to cultivate it again. Zhou Yuan, you are the best inheritor of my mantle. You will no doubt surpass me in the future.”
Sect master Qing Yang, Liu Lianyi and the others turned red with embarrassment.
Patriarch Cang Xuan clasped the Cangxuan Saint Stamp in one hand and the rainbow glass gourd in the other, and smiled at Zhou Yuan. “We joined hands ten years ago but that guy made one of us disappear and made the other flee from his hometown. The Cangxuan Saint Stamp had to be destroyed in the end. But what would the result this time be?”
Zhou Yuan smiled calmly. “There will only be one result. From then on, the name Sheng Yuan will never be heard in Cangxuan Heaven.”
Patriarch Cang Xuan couldn’t help feeling entranced when he saw Zhou Yuan’s calm and imposing smile. The little boy back then had become the hero of all-heavens.
Patriarch Cang Xuan chuckled and nodded firmly. “You’re right, the tumor in Cangxuan Heaven has to be get rid off today."
As his voice faded, the Cangxuan Saint Stamp in his hand suddenly collided with the rainbow glass gourd.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
