Three silhouettes flashed across the sky, producing a sharp whistle of wind.
Zhou Yuan had increased his speed to the extreme, but even so, he still felt the two figures rapidly nearing him. At the moment, he needed to not only get rid of the two Heavenly Sun experts but also buy time.
How could he not guess that the assassination was connected to the Fire Pavilion and the Heavenly Spirit Sect? Previously, he never would have thought they would be so crazy since their actions would no doubt lead to public anger. Even the Heavenly Spirit Sect couldn’t withstand something like that, right?
Thoughts flashed across Zhou Yuan’s mind, and the next moment, his expression suddenly changed dramatically because he felt the space around him become sticky, and his speed sharply slowed. He felt like a mosquito trapped in amber.
“Void solidification? Nascent Source stage experts?!” Zhou Yuan’s face was stricken with horror.
In order to deal with him, a Divine Dwelling stage expert, they had actually sent out experts of the Nascent Source stage? Did they have any shame?
The void in front of Zhou Yuan rippled, and a silver-robed figure emerged. Terrifying pressure spread outward, pressing Zhou Yuan to the point his bones creaked as if they were about to shatter.
“You’re just a little pavilion master, but you dare slander my Heavenly Spirit Sect. No one can protect you today!”
The silver-robed figure’s eyes were icy cold as he thrust out his palm. It appeared to be a casual palm, but it unexpectedly contained the aura of death. If his palm strike succeeded, even Zhou Yuan’s spirit would be eliminated on the spot.
Countless watching eyes were filled with shocked disbelief.
“That’s Xi Guang, the hall master of the Silver Light Hall!”
“What’s going on? Why is hall master Xi Guang attacking the Wind Pavilion’s pavilion master?”
“Is the Heavenly Spirit Sect really going to rebel?”
“How is that possible?”
In the distance, there were many fierce silhouettes rushing over. They were the law enforcement guards of the Tianyuan Utopia. They roared in anger, “Stop!”
Although hall master Xi Guang was well known to be ill-mannered, it was against the law to attack someone in the Tianyuan Utopia!
But even with the furious roars of the law enforcement guards, Xi Guang’s eyes simply flashed as though he didn’t hear them. He slammed his palm down even more fiercely. He had already attacked Zhou Yuan, so only when Zhou Yuan was killed would the matter be minimised. Otherwise, if Zhou Yuan survived, he could frantically bite back at him, which would be even more troublesome.
The palm enveloped in the aura of death rapidly grew before Zhou Yuan, and an intense smell of death tensed up his entire body.
But just when the palm of death was only a few feet away from Zhou Yuan, an indescribable wave of energy rippled across the sky. Then, Zhou Yuan found that Xi Quang seemed to have frozen in front of him.
Additionally, the terrifying Genesis Qi gathered in Xi Guang’s palm dissipated without his control. The mighty and endless Genesis Qi in his body also seemed to have been completely sealed, and he could no longer operate them.
A horrified look came to Xi Guang’s face. At this moment, he was like trash without any Genesis Qi. And to make him, an expert of the Nascent Source stage, become like this could only be achieved by an omnipotent existence such as a Law Domain expert!
A Law Domain expert of the Tianyuan Region had taken action?
His palm that was previously enveloped in frightening Genesis Qi slammed towards the top of Zhou Yuan’s head, but there was only a gentle sound, and the feeling was similar to patting Zhou Yuan on the head.
Feeling the palm stroking his head, Zhou Yuan was also stunned. A strength of that level couldn’t even break his scalp.
What’s going on?
Although puzzled, Zhou Yuan reflexively lifted his leg and kicked the face of Xi Guang, who seemed to be frozen in front of him.
A black footprint appeared on Xi Guang’s face.
And he was sent flying by Zhou Yuan’s kick.
Xi Guang quickly steadied his body and almost erupted in anger. In front of so many people, someone of the Divine Dwelling stage had kicked the hall master of the Silver Light Hall in the face!
But just as he was about to charge towards Zhou Yuan in fury, a clear voice suddenly resounded throughout the world.
“How can a hall master of the Heavenly Spirit Sect do whatever he wants in the Tianyuan Utopia? Are you treating the rules made by my master, the supreme sovereign, as nothing?”
Hearing the clear and indifferent voice, Xi Guang immediately turned pale. He trembled all over and abruptly lifted his head to see a slender figure in the void. The bright burgundy hair and the heroic appearance directly revealed her identity.
“Pay respect to the grand elder Chi Jing!”
On the Little Yuan Island below, countless figures bowed respectfully.
“Lady Chi Jing.” Xi Guang also hurriedly gave a cupped fist salute. He never expected a grand elder to show up so quickly, let alone why this kind of matter would attract the attention of a grand elder!
Isn’t it enough for law enforcement guards to come?
Chi Jing stared at Xi Guang, anger flashing in the depths of her eyes. Zhou Yuan and her had both practiced the Primal Chaos Divine Grindstone Visualisation Method, so their Spirits were connected in a special way. This was the reason why she was able to detect that Zhou Yuan’s Spirit was violently rippling and came right away.
If Zhou Yuan hadn’t practiced the Primal Chaos Divine Grindstone Visualisation Method, Xi Guang would have gotten what he wanted.
“Do you, hall master Xi Guang, want to explain what you were doing? If you break the rules, even if you’re a hall master of the Heavenly Spirit Sect, you will still be punished today,” Chi Jing uttered coldly.
Xi Guang quickly wanted to speak.
However, Zhou Yuan was the first to shout out, “Lady Chi Jing, a few days ago, I was out on a mission and was attacked by deputy pavilion master Fang Ao and a few others. Then today, hall master Xi Guang tried to assassinate me. He sees the rules set by supreme sovereign Cang Yuan as nothing, which is equivalent to rebelling. I suspect that the Silver Light Hall intends to defame the Heavenly Spirit Sect and betray the Tianyuan Region. I hope Lady Chi Jing will understand!”
Hearing his words, countless people gasped out loud.
Xi Guang’s face darkened with anger. “What nonsense. Lady Chi Jing, Zhou Yuan murdered his fellow colleagues, and he killed my disciple Fang Ao. I only wanted to capture him to find out the reason!”
“You both have your own sides of the story, so I won’t deal with this matter for now. But you, hall master Xi Guang, have violated the rules of the Tianyuan Utopia, and this was witnessed by everyone. You have to be punished for your crime.”
She stretched out her slender finger, pointing to Xi Guang.
Immediately, a chain of Genesis Qi formed and directly tightened around Xi Guang’s body. Chained by Genesis Qi, even Xi Guang, an expert of the Nascent Source stage, couldn’t put up any resistance.
Zhou Yuan let out a gasp of astonishment. When Xi Guang attacked him, even his imposing manner alone had almost crushed him. But now Xi Guang was like a child in front of his senior sister Chi Jing, waiting to be punished.
An expert of the Law Domain was indeed terrifying.
Xi Guang was enraged that Chi Jing had directly restrained him, but he didn’t dare to scold her and had no choice but to suppress his anger. “Lady Chi Jing, I’m not satisfied with how this matter is being dealt with. I want to see sect master Xuan Kun!”
“Don’t worry, I’ve already sent someone to inform him. I also want to hear how sect master Xuan Kun would punish someone who has violated the rules set by supreme sovereign Cang Yuan in the Tianyuan Utopia.”
The corners of Xi Guang’s mouth twitched slightly. He didn’t understand why Chi Jing, who was relatively gentle in the past, would have such a huge reaction this time.
Did she really want to create a bad relationship with the Heavenly Spirit Sect because of a little pavilion master from the Wind Pavilion?
He couldn’t figure out what Chi Jing was thinking, and he dared not say anything more. He could only stay quiet.
With their silence, the atmosphere turned incredibly tense, and many sensitive people had faintly noticed that the day’s event would cause quite a stir.
The silence lasted for a good while. The void rippled, and then a thin old man appeared under countless awed eyes. Following his appearance, the Genesis Qi between heaven and earth became increasingly heavy.
Sect master Xuan Kun, one of the five grand elders of Tianyuan region, had appeared.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
