On the mountain summit, the ground shattered, and smoke and dust filled the air.
Countless people stared blankly at the scene. The originally buzzing atmosphere was quiet. It was clear how much shock that the change in the battle had brought them.
Zhou Yuan was clearly forced to a desperate situation!
But how did Lu Xiao end up being the one wounded?!
The silence lasted for more than a dozen breaths before it was broken by a commotion.
“What’s going on?!” countless spectators asked in bewilderment.
However, there were some outstanding experts present with much sharper eyesight. Although the changes happened in a flash, the experts could still distinctly feel what happened. “It seemed that Lu Xiao had driven Zhou Yuan to a desperate state, but it was only an illusion. Lu Xiao wanted to force Zhou Yuan to reveal his flaws and wait for an opportunity to strike, but Zhou Yuan deliberately revealed his flaws and lured Lu Xiao to make a move. Then he had launched a deadly attack and defeated him.”
“Haha, they are both very cunning, like two little foxes,” a Heavenly Sun stage expert exclaimed.
“Yes,” agreed another Heavenly Sun stage expert, “and the last attack that Zhou Yuan used was exceptionally strong. Even Lu Xiao’s motionless purple light king barrier couldn’t withstand it.”
Understanding dawned on the spectators’ faces when they heard the comments from the Heavenly Sun stage experts, and they immediately smacked their lips. It was unknown how many rounds Zhou Yuan and Lu Xiao had fought.
But looking at the current situation, it was clear that Zhou Yuan finally took the upper hand.
Even from a distance, they could still feel the impact of Zhou Yuan’s attack, and Lu Xiao was the first to bear the brunt. Even if he had activated his strongest defense, it would have still felt unpleasant.
Perhaps the outcome of the battle had already been decided.
On the Fire Pavilion’s side, the smile on Zuo Ya’s face stiffened. She was visibly annoyed because she thought that Lu Xiao was in control of the situation and was about to win!
But then the situation changed like a slap to her face.
Zhu Lian also opened his mouth, but no sound came out because a battle of that level had far exceeded his foresight. Zhou Yuan’s counterattack was so beautiful and fierce that even Lu Xiao was struck. What could he see?
And what made his heart pound with fear was that Zhou Yuan’s previous attack was so strong that even he wasn’t sure how badly Lu Xiao was wounded.
If it was too severe—Zhu Lian dared not think about it anymore.
If the worst really had occurred, Zuo Ya, who was beside him, would explode with shock. Of course, Zhu Lian knew that she most likely wouldn’t be the only one exploding with shock.
On the Wind Pavilion’s side, there weren’t any cheers as imagined because everyone was still in a state of disbelief.
That was Lu Xiao!
In the eyes of the many people from the Wind Pavilion, although Lu Xiao, who was known as the strongest of the Divine Dwelling stage in the Tianyuan Region, had firmly suppressed them, they had to say that they also held great fear and respect for Lu Xiao.
But now, Lu Xiao, whom they considered to be invincible, had suffered a huge loss to the wind pavilion master. At this moment, Zhou Yuan’s position in their hearts skyrocketed again.
Ye Bingling and Yi Qiushui also gasped in astonishment. When they exchanged a glance, they could see the shock in each other’s eyes.
“Lu Xiao should be severely wounded by that powerful attack, right?”
“Generally speaking, that should be the case, but Lu Xiao isn’t ordinary and might be able to counter the attack.
“However, to be able to force Lu Xiao to this state, even if Zhou Yuan lost, his name would be known throughout the Tianyuan Region.
“But according to that guy’s personality, he most likely won’t be satisfied with it.”
When the outside world was stunned by the development of the battle on the mountain summit, Zhou Yuan’s figure slowly landed on an intact boulder. At this moment, the wisps of blood in his eyes were gradually fading.
The veins on his forehead were also beginning to recover, but there was still a sharp pain in his mind, which made him wrinkle his brows and forehead. The Spirit Burial attack launched by two grade-6 beast spirits also had a considerable impact on him.
At the center of Zhou Yuan’s eyebrows, the Spirit light was glowing continuously, calming his surging Spirit.
His eyes were intently fixed on the raging smoke and dust in the distance. His previous attack had firmly struck Lu Xiao’s body. Although Lu Xiao had summoned a defense formation at the last moment, Zhou Yuan was certain that the attack was still unpleasant to Lu Xiao.
However, there was still a bit of uncertainty about whether he could win.
Zhou Yuan waved his sleeve, and a gust of Genesis Qi swept away the dust and smoke, making the mountain summit clearer.
Countless people cast their eyes up to see a huge pit in which Lu Xiao lay. His body, covered in blood and mud, looked incredibly miserable.
But his eyes were still wide open. He seemed to be staring at the sky in a trance, his chest heaving up and down.
The pulsing Genesis Qi around his body had become a lot weaker than before. Anyone could tell that, after he suffered Zhou Yuan’s fierce attack, his injuries weren’t light.
As though aware of Zhou Yuan’s gaze, Lu Xiao spat out a mouthful of blood and said indifferently, “It was a ruthless attack. It seems that you have been preparing this for a long time.”
Zhou Yuan said, “Same to you.”
Lu Xiao had prepared a great Genesis technique formation for Zhou Yuan, and Zhou Yuan had also prepared a fierce attack for him.
“Can you use that attack again?” Lu Xiao coldly smiled.
“Try it, and you’ll know.” Zhou Yuan narrowed his eyes. Lu Xiao was right. For this battle, he had asked his senior sister Chi Jing to help him prepare four grade-6 beast spirit crystals. He had already used three, and the remaining one could no longer be used because Zhou Yuan’s Spirit wouldn’t withstand a third Spirit recoil.
Of course, Zhou Yuan wouldn’t say this out loud, as it would be good if Lu Xiao was fearful of him. After all, in war nothing is too deceitful.
Lu Xiao didn’t say more. The corners of his mouth twitched, but he didn’t try to get up. He instead closed his eyes slowly, his expression of chilly indifference.
Zhou Yuan frowned a little when he saw this.
His excellent combat consciousness made him faintly aware of something.
He didn’t waste time saying anything more, and with a fierce glint in his eyes, he lifted his hand and a sword pill flashed out, engulfing the monstrous sword qi, and delivered a direct sword slash at Lu Xiao, who was still in the deep pit.
“If you don’t want to fight anymore, I’ll send you down the mountain now!”
Mighty sword light, amid countless exclamations, slashed through the air, aiming for Lu Xiao’s head.
Many members of the Fire Pavilion couldn’t bear to look, and they closed their eyes.
The sword swung down, and a sword mark appeared in the deep pit, extending hundreds of feet.
However, Zhou Yuan froze for a moment as he coldly peered down into the deep pit only to see thick black smoke seeping out from Lu Xiao’s body. Vaguely, his body was emitting a shrill explosive sound.
The sword pill wrapped in sword light slashed the black fog and was unable to advance an inch further or wound Lu Xiao who was within the black fog.
Lu Xiao’s figure slowly floated up, monstrous black smoke gathering behind him, like tumbling black clouds. Within the black smoke, an incomparably huge black shadow with nine heads emerged. It was a strange and mysterious sight.
Zhou Yuan expressionlessly looked at the nine-headed black shadow exuding terrifying pressure within the black smoke.
Lu Xiao did indeed have another trump card up his sleeve.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
