Chapter 690 Body as bait

The gigantic blood-red dragon coiled around Zhou Yuan’s body, and a monstrous resentment qi filled the air. It directly caused the temperature around to plummet to a degree low enough to chill one’s bones..

Countless people stared at the giant blood red dragon around Zhou Yuan in shocked disbelief. The boundless resentment qi was enough to make their scalp go numb, but they were similarly able to feel the majestic power contained within the blood red dragon. 

That kind of power seemed to be exactly the same as what Wu Huang showed before.

In the sky, Wu Huang’s pupils shrank rapidly when he saw the gigantic blood red dragon around Zhou Yuan. “You have actually subdued the Dragon’s Resentment Poison?” 

He was aware that the Dragon’s Resentment Poison in Zhou Yuan's body was his father's doing. 

The poison was said to be incomparably overbearing. King Wu had originally intended to completely destroy Zhou Yuan with that, but unexpectedly not only did Zhou Yuan survived, he even began to subdue it and borrow its power! 

Zhou Yuan raised his eyes and spoke indifferently, “Speaking of that, I should thank your father. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to control the Dragon’s Resentment Poison.”  

Since a young age, Zhou Yuan had suffered from the torture of the Dragon’s Resentment Poison. During that period it was unknown how many times he had wandered to and fro the gates of hell. But fortunately, with the help of Yaoyao, he was finally able to completely subdue and control it.

It was the first time that Zhou Yuan was finally able to use the power of the Dragon’s Resentment Poison of his own volition.

Zhou Yuan gazed at the blood-red dragon, and the next moment, his hands suddenly folded in a hand seal.


The gigantic blood red dragon let out a deafening roar before diving down and directly collided with Zhou Yuan’s silver armour.

During the moment of impact, the blood red dragon seemed to have turned into liquid and quickly integrated with the silver armour. Immediately afterwards, a blood dragon light emerged on the surface of the silver armour.


Waves of incredibly violent Genesis Qi broke out from Zhou Yuan's body, causing the space to shake with a loud ear-piercing noise.

The power of the Genesis Qi continued to climb.

Countless people were speechless as they regarded Zhou Yuan erupting with power.

Was the battle between the two simply a competition of who could explode more times with new powers?!

But the power that exploded from the two also set off stormy waves in many people’s hearts, because they were all well aware that the two men's performance was far beyond what an Alpha Origin stage expert could achieve. 

If it weren’t for the absence of the divine dwelling halo, they would have wondered whether they had both stepped foot into the Divine Dwelling stage. 

Amidst countless gasps of amazement, all eyes were locked on the two figures in the sky. At this moment, anybody could feel that, as both sides turned over their trump cards one after another, the earthshaking battle was about to come an end.

Wu Huang stood tall in the void. At this moment the appearance of his body resembled that of a dragon asura, exuding tyrannical qi. His biting cold eyes were locked on Zhou Yuan, who felt extremely threatening to him after his eruption of power.

The battle between the two had come to the most critical point.

Wu Huang clenched his fist and the blood crystal spear emerged in his hand. “I would like to see whether your Dragon’s Resentment Transformation or my Asura Sacred Dragon Transformation is stronger!” 

He tightened his grip around the blood crystal spear. Genesis Qi crazily came surging out and penetrated the blood crystal spear. The blood crystal spear shot out tens of thousands of rays of light. 


The body of the spear shook, and the terrifying waves of energy that were gradually released distorted the nearby space around it. 

When Wu Huang swung the blood crystal spear, there seemed to be a sea of blood surging.

His eyes, filled with intense murderous spirit, were intently fixed on Zhou Yuan. The next moment, he suddenly stepped forward and darted in Zhou Yuan’s direction like a stream of flowing light. 

Killing intent filled the air. 

Behind him, the blood light was monstrous, like a sea of blood crashing down. 

Where it passed, the space shook violently. 

Watching the sea of blood roaring over, Zhou Yuan's eyes also turned fierce. Wu Huang seemed to have used all his strength in that attack. This was a move that intended to absolutely kill him.

He drew a deep breath, his fists clenched. The Heavenly Yuan Brush began to glow more and more brightly as majestic Genesis Qi gathered around it. The snowy white tip also gradually took on a blood red colour. 

The blood dragon light rune that occupied the surface of the silver armour was creeping out, covering the mottled body of the Heavenly Yuan Brush. 

Zhou Yuan lifted his palm and the Heavenly Yuan Brush also slowly rose. The tip of the brush vibrated, causing the space to tremble. 

At this moment, all of Zhou Yuan’s power was gathered on the Heavenly Yuan brush.

His eyes were suddenly as sharp as knives. 


His figure also shot out, transforming into a stream of light that skimmed across the sky. From his stance, it seemed that he wasn’t going to hold back at all. 

Countless people were moved by the scene. 


The two streams of light containing destructive power collided.



The collision between the spear and brush caused a storm of Genesis Qi to wreak havoc everywhere, even tearing the clouds in the high altitude. 

And the buildings below were torn down and reduced to rubble, followed by streets collapsing. The destructive power of the collision was too astonishing.


At this moment, a beam of light shot skywards from the city. He clasped his hands together and suddenly there were torrents of Genesis Qi gathering together to form a light barrier to block the shock waves. 

It was an expert of Distant Saint City stopping the city from being destroyed. 

But no one paid attention to this. All eyes were intently fixed on where the collision was in the sky. 

There, the tip of the spear and the tip of the brush were facing each other, and Zhou Yuan’s and Wu Huang’s body were spurting out blood mist. 

But their faces were unusually cold, showing no intention of retreat.


Wu Huang’s eyes were gloomy as he stared at Zhou Yuan. He flicked his wrist and the tip of the spear quivered rapidly, moving away from the Heaven Yuan Brush and directly thrusted towards Zhou Yuan’s chest.

Zhou Yuan’s eyes turned biting cold when he saw this. He did not hesitate in the slightest, nor showed any intention to defend. The sharp brush tip similarly vibrated and aimed for Wu Huang’s chest.

Both their moves were ruthless, and targeted the vital areas. 

The way the two fought with their lives made everyone’s hair stand on its end.


So, after a breath of time, the tip of the spear and the tip of the brush almost at the same time pierced both their chest and jets of blood mist spurted out. 

The world fell silent. 

The mist of blood drifted past the eyes of the two men. 

“You have lost again this time.” Zhou Yuan glanced at the hole in his chest, his tone of voice indifferent. 

Although Wu Huang's long spear had stabbed through his body, most of the power had been absorbed by the ‘Silver Shadow’. On the other hand, as Zhou Yuan's Heavenly Yuan Brush broke through Wu Huang’s body, countless strands of the hairs of the brush were instantly released to destroy the inside of Wu Huang’s body. 

Wu Huang looked at himself only to see countless rays of light wreaking havoc beneath his flesh and constantly cracks were spreading all over his body. 

Zhou Yuan possessed the powerful silver shadow and a tough body. Wu Huang seemed to be at a disadvantage.

However, after a glance, Wu Huang’s lips curved in a strange arc.

“Zhou Yuan, I’m afraid you are the one who lost.”  

“Even if the body of the asura body is destroyed, it can be reborn as long as a drop of asura blood remains.” The strange arc of his lips became more and more obvious, and then his hands suddenly folded in a hand seal. 

Invisible spirit began to accumulate in the space between his eyebrows, and inside was a drop of bright red blood. 

The spirit wrapped around the blood, rising into the sky. 

 “Zhou Yuan, I'll use the blood asura body to see you off.” 

“Asura burial!”  

Wu Huang’s shrill laughter rang across the universe, and when his voice fell, countless people were shocked to see countless jets of blood spraying out from Wu Huang’s body.

His body had self-exploded! 

Outside Distant Saint City, Chu Qing, Li Qingchan and others’ expression changed abruptly and immediately raced into the city.


But before they could rush into the city, a blood-red mushroom cloud gushed out a destructive torrent of Genesis Qi, which struck even the light barrier set up by experts of the Distant Saint city, causing it to tremble violently. 

Countless people looked at the blood red mushroom cloud, and then at Wu Huang who was howling with laughter. 

The battle between the two strongest people of the Alpha Origin stage had finally, following Wu Huang using his body as bait, came to an end.

Caught in that kind of torrent, nobody of the Alpha Origin stage would survive.

Zhou Yuan would most likely die. 

However, just as countless people were sighing and Wu Huang laughing crazily, there seemed to be a low and almost undetectable voice coming from the blood red mushroom cloud. 

“Heavenly Punishment.”    

When the low voice faded, the raging blood red mushroom cloud seemed to have solidified. A mysterious energy rippled, and then, everyone was astonished to see the torrent erupted from the blood red mushroom dispersing quietly. 

Everything returned to calmness. 

In the sky, Wu Huang, who was laughing hysterically, peered down in disbelief.

There, he saw the blood red mushroom cloud had quietly dispersed, and Zhou Yuan, clasping the Heavenly Yuan brush, slowly walked out without a trace of emotion in his eyes.
