“That Zhou Yuan seems to be arranging a Genesis Rune boundary.”
In the rain-shrouded world, Zhu Lian was peering into the distance with narrowed eyes. He could vaguely feel that there were subtle movements of Genesis Qi.
“What boundary?” Fang Ao asked with a frown.
“It should be some kind of boundary that blocks the perception of the outside world. He must be worried that the battle against the Sky Obscurer Beast would attract other Genesis Beasts in the forest,” Zhu Lian explained.
Fang Ao relaxed his brows and sneered, “That boy is quite sharp witted.
“But unfortunately, it would never cross Zhou Yuan’s mind that the thing he should be most wary of wasn’t other Genesis Beasts but a group of fishermen hiding in the dark and watching carefully!”
He looked at Zhu Lian and reminded, “I’ll take action with the others, and you’ll provide support from behind.”
A hint of discontent flashed in Zhu Lian’s eyes. How could he not catch the trace of contempt in Fang Ao’s tone of voice? Fang Ao had been competing with him for the position of number two in the Fire Pavilion for a long time. Moreover, he had always looked down on him because he only possessed the strength of the initial Divine Dwelling stage.
This muscular fool should think about whether the Fire Pavilion could have developed to this level over the years if it weren’t for the Mark Capturer Rune. Without it, how would it become the state it is today?
Based on contribution, Fang Ao wasn’t even qualified to carry shoes for him.
But Zhu Lian didn’t say anything in the end. He simply grunted because he understood that he wouldn’t benefit much if he were to participate in a battle of that level, given his strength was only at the initial Divine Dwelling stage.
Fang Ao also didn’t care about Zhu Lian’s attitude. As long as he successfully completed the task, it would be a great achievement, and he might even become the number two person of the Fire Pavilion. Moreover, once Lu Xiao won the chief pavilion master position in three months, the pavilion master position would be vacant and could possibly fall to him.
While they were fighting and scheming against one another, in the distance the Genesis Rune boundary had taken form. It suddenly shrouded an area and distorted the area, making it difficult for people to see inside the boundary.
“There should be a fight soon.” Fang Ao smiled, his eyes gleaming in anticipation.
Although the Genesis Rune boundary could block the majority of the movements inside, with careful perception, they could still detect what was going on. Therefore, they could judge how the battle was progressing from a distance.
Just as Fang Ao had imagined, shortly after the Genesis Rune boundary was formed, there were already strange movements.
It was a collision of powerful Genesis Qi.
Vaguely, Fang Ao also seemed to hear the roar of a furious beast.
“I really want to see how miserable they are at this moment.” Fang Ao stretched his back. Even if the Sky Obscurer Beast was seriously wounded, it was still a grade-six Genesis Beast. If Zhou Yuan and the others wanted to kill it, they would certainly have to pay a high price.
But unfortunately, since he was a fisherman, he naturally had to make his appearance at the last moment.
On the Fire Pavilion’s side, in addition to Fang Ao and Zhu Lian, there were five other people following them. They were all elites from the Fire Pavilion with strength of the advanced Divine Dwelling stage. One after another they all burst into laughter upon hearing Fang Ao’s ridicule.
It could be seen that the atmosphere was very casual, and they didn’t really attach any importance to Zhou Yuan and the others.
After all, given their strength, it wouldn’t be difficult for them to swallow Zhou Yuan and the others in a battle, not to mention they were currently fishermen acting in the dark. They were confident of success with this task.
Fang Ao sat comfortably on a tree stump, staring into the distance with narrowed eyes like a venomous snake. He carefully sensed the waves of Genesis Qi constantly being released. Although he couldn’t see the situation inside, a clear picture was being outlined in his mind.
Like a dog that boy must be being chased by the Sky Obscurer Beast now, right?
Fang Ao calculated the time, and almost an hour later, he suddenly stood up.
“It’s almost time. Both sides should be exhausted now.” He smiled calmly like everything was under control.
Zhu Lian could only stand alone and watch them leave, his expression discontent.
Under the cover of heavy rain, Fang Ao and his group of people quietly drew closer to the Genesis Rune boundary. Upon close observation, the boundary in front of them was like an invisible barrier and was indeed difficult to discover without a careful look.
“That kid’s mastery in Genesis Runes is pretty good,” Fang Ao said with a cold smile.
He stretched out his hand, and Genesis Qi visibly gathered in his palm. He stroked the Genesis Rune boundary in front of him.
Immediately, he easily tore open the boundary. He gave a hand signal, and the several people behind him stormed through.
The moment they entered, Fang Ao looked ahead and was immediately stunned for a moment.
Inside wasn’t the mess that he had imagined. Instead it was peaceful. In particular, they couldn’t see the shadow of the Sky Obscurer Beast, and no matter how they looked around, it didn’t seem like a battle had occurred.
What was the movement he had perceived earlier?
“What’s going on? Where are the people?!” the several people behind Fang Ao asked puzzledly.
Fang Ao was silent for a good while; then his face changed drastically. “This is bad, it’s a trap! Go back!”
He twisted around and slammed his palm into the Genesis Rune boundary.
But this time, the Genesis Rune boundary seemed to have changed, and mighty Genesis Qi burst forth to block Fang Ao’s palm strike.
“Quick, destroy the boundary together!” Fang Ao commanded, his face ashen.
But just as they were about to do so, a sudden burst of laughter rang out, “You’re leaving so soon?”
Fang Ao twisted around only to see that the void not far away was rippling and several figures were appearing. Who else would it be besides Zhou Yuan? And behind Zhou Yuan, Ye Bingling and the others were also looking at them in shock.
Fang Ao gritted his teeth, “Zhou Yuan, you knew we were following you?!”
Zhou Yuan grinned. Lu Xiao’s investigation into him was very secretive, and he really wouldn’t have realised given his identity and influence, but he wasn’t alone!
He had his senior sister. Although his senior sister had placed him in the Wind Pavilion to let him develop, she was still very concerned about the safety of her little junior brother.
So when Lu Xiao was finding out about his whereabouts, Chi Jing naturally informed Zhou Yuan of the matter and told him to act carefully.
This led to the good show unfolding before them.
“Zhou Yuan, withdraw the Genesis Rune boundary!” Fang Ao thundered.
“Deputy pavilion master Fang Ao must be here to watch the show? The good show has just started, it would be a shame to leave so early.” Zhou Yuan’s mouth was curled in a strange smile.
“What do you want?” Fang Ao felt a little uneasy.
Zhou Yuan snapped his fingers.
It was at this moment that a loud explosion of Genesis Qi sounded in the distant abyss, and then, an angry beast roared fiercely and deafeningly.
Zhou Yuan’s hand seal changed. Clouds and mist rolled in and quickly shrouded their figures. They immediately disappeared into the boundary.
But Fang Ao’s and the others’ expressions changed drastically when they saw a huge black shadow rising up from the abyss. Its pair of scarlet eyes was directly locked on Fang Ao and the others.
It was also aware of the Genesis Rune boundary shrouding the area and so felt that this was the encirclement and suppression of the Tianyuan Region and that Fang Ao and others were obviously the culprits.
Fang Ao and the others felt a chill rushing up to their heads from the soles of their feet when met with the beast’s crimson eyes, which were full of rage.
How could they not understand that they had fallen into Zhou Yuan’s trap!
Who said the fisherman takes advantage from the fight between the snipe and the clam? They claimed to be the fishermen, but they didn’t expect the fishermen watching the battle would suddenly be forcibly drawn into the battle circle. As a result, there was a direct swap in the identities of the fishermen and the prey.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
