Chapter 659 Overbearing

“Heavenly Punishment...”  

Zhou Yuan murmured the name of the third Saint Rune and smacked his lips. This name was really too overbearing.

He found that the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune, after entering his body, was flowing directly along his meridians. It finally arrived at his Qi Dwelling at a leisurely pace.

It was evident that the Saint Rune had a strong spiritual nature and would independently seek a place to live. 

However, while Zhou Yuan didn’t pay too much attention to it, his countenance abruptly changed. As the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune entered his Qi Dwelling, the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure that occupied his Qi Dwelling erupted with waves of energy. 

Shocked, Zhou Yuan hurriedly observed it more closely.

He found that the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure that originally occupied the center of the Qi Dwelling hurriedly moved aside for the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune. 

The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune occupied the central position without any trace of politeness. He looked at the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure, but the next moment he saw a beam of light erupt out from the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune and rapidly twist around the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure. Lastly, as though opening a huge mouth, it swallowed the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure in one mouthful! 

Zhou Yuan was struck dumb by this scene. The moment he recovered from the shock, he scolded out loud, “Don’t eat my things without my permission!”

He had put in a lot of effort to get his hands on the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure. Although he already held an eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure, how would he dislike having too many Divine Establishing Treasures!

“Spit it back out!”    

Zhou Yuan sent out his thoughts. The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune possessed a spiritual nature, and so it must have understood his command. 

However, the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune was just rippling like a liquid body. It showed no intention of spitting out the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure as Zhou Yuan had ordered it to. 

Zhou Yuan did not know whether to laugh or cry. 

It seemed that the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure was gone and would never come back.

Zhou Yuan wailed inwardly. He took a step back, and the surrounding environment began vibrating. He returned to the starry sky where there were many groups of light dancing, and then headed straight towards the three light spheres containing eight-color Divine Establishing Treasures. 

Although the seven-color Divine Establishing Treasure was swallowed, there were fortunately three other eight-color Divine Establishing Treasures.

“Given my contribution, I should take an eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure, right?” Zhou Yuan stared intently at the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasures. Although numerous disciples of the Cangxuan Sect had contributed, Zhou Yuan wasn’t modest and thought his contribution was worth at least an eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure. 

“Then, I’ll take my share first,” Zhou Yuan mumbled and then no longer hesitated. He stretched out his hand and tightly grasped an eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure. Feeling the pure and majestic Genesis Qi within, his eyes blazed brighter and brighter.

With one thought he shattered the light sphere and directly absorbed the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure into his body.

This time, Zhou Yuan fully wrapped the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure in Genesis Qi before he carefully sent it into the Qi Dwelling.

“Don’t you dare eat it again!” Zhou Yuan warned. To be safe, he even sent the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure to a place a little farther away from the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune.

However, just as he was about to set the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure down, he was shocked to see the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune flash over.

In panic, Zhou Yuan hurriedly tried to send the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure out of the Qi Dwelling. 

But it was already too late. The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune seemed to have some kind of unimaginable oppressive force over Divine Establishing Treasures. With a thought, the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure actively flew out and was swallowed by the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune.

Zhou Yuan stared at the scene, dumbstruck. 

Even the eight-color Divine Establishing Treasure was eaten? What was going on?

Zhou Yuan felt his head cracking from a headache. What was the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune doing? Without the Divine Establishing Treasures, it would be troublesome when he tried to make a breakthrough! 

“Why did this happen?” Zhou Yuan muttered. 

The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune seemed to dislike Divine Establishing Treasures appearing in his Qi Dwelling? Its behaviour was a bit similar to a beast king defending his territory—it would not let any other beast enter.

Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment. He then took another six-color Divine Establishing Treasure and threw into his Qi Dwelling.

It was as expected. Just as the six-color Divine Establishing Treasure entered the Qi Dwelling, it flew over to the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune on its own initiative and was swallowed.

The corners of Zhou Yuan’s mouth twitched repeatedly. This meant that he couldn’t possess any more Divine Establishing Treasures? 

Then what did he risk his life for in the Mythic Utopia? 

“You’re too overbearing!” Zhou Yuan felt his head hurting, exhausted.

Buzz! 

It was then that the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune slightly vibrated, and it seemed to be sending out a fuzzy message.

“With you, I don’t need any Divine Establishing Treasures?” Zhou Yuan received that message. The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune was a mysterious treasure. Although it did not have a consciousness, it was full of spirituality and seemed to understand what Zhou Yuan, its master, was thinking.

Zhou Yuan’s heart fluttered. Could the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune replace the role of Divine Establishing Treasures?

If this was the case then what level of Divine Establishing Treasure was the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune?

But this time, the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune did not move and did not seem to want to respond.

Zhou Yuan couldn’t help but purse his lips when he saw this. The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune appeared to be more prideful than both the Decoder Saint Rune and the Earth Saint Rune.

But after saying this, Zhou Yuan’s worry dissipated, and instead, it was replaced by curiosity and anticipation. He was anxious to know what sort of effect the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune would have when he made a breakthrough to the Divine Dwelling stage?

Although the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune did not reveal any special effects similar to Divine Establishing Treasures, everybody knew that it was extraordinary. With its help, what level of heavens would he be able to establish? 

“Could it be the legendary nine heavens Divine Dwelling?” Zhou Yuan muttered. Just moments before, he wouldn’t have the courage to hope for a nine heavens Divine Dwelling. After all, he had never heard of a nine-color Divine Establishing Treasure before.  

But the mysteriousness of the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune gave him a trace of hope.

Moreover, he vaguely could feel that the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune had absorbed the incredibly majestic and pure Genesis Qi of the heavens and the earth due to being stored in the Mythic Utopia for such a long period of time. He did not have time to absorb and refine the Genesis Qi now, but after this matter, if he could take it for his own use, his strength would undoubtedly grow. 

Having suppressed his excitement, Zhou Yuan’s eyebrows were again scrunched together in a frown, because he realised that he still hadn’t received any information about the fourth Saint Rune when he had obtained the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune. 

“What’s going on?” Zhou Yuan sighed. How could he find the fourth Saint Rune without any clues?

After a long period of deep thought, Zhou Yuan had no choice but to shake his head and give up for now. He then waved his robe, and the numerous Divine Establishing Treasures suddenly whizzed over like a tide. They were stored into the spatial bag at his waist.   

“The treasures of the jade disc are all in the bag. This trip is indeed worthwhile.” 

Zhou Yuan smiled and turned around. As the air rippled, his body gradually dissipated, and he stepped out of the jade disc.
