“Congratulations, chief pavilion master!”
“Congratulations, chief pavilion master!”
Shouted congratulations and applause echoed across the sky and spread a great distance as though it could be heard throughout the entire Tianyuan Utopia.
Such a battle was undoubtedly grand.
Countless eyes widened with admiration as they stared at the young figure on the mountain summit. That day’s chief pavilion master battle was an eye-opener, and it made them realize what kind of people were the exceptional heaven prides ranked on the Divine Dwelling List.
The previous fierce match was enough to make the majority of the advanced Divine Dwelling experts feel inferior and dejected.
On the mountainside, both Mu Liu and Han Yuan looked at the crumbling mountain summit with complex expressions. The battle’s outcome was equally unexpected to them. Even though Mu Liu had a strong intuition, when this result appeared in front of them, he still found it hard to believe.
After all, Zhou Yuan’s opponent was Lu Xiao, Tianyuan Region’s most outstanding Divine Dwelling stage talent. He also had a remarkable reputation in the entire Hunyuan Heaven.
That day, however, this proud heaven pride was defeated.
And replacing him was someone who was still a nobody a few months ago.
Whether it was Mu Liu or Han Yuan, when they first met Zhou Yuan, they had never thought that the young man who had suddenly appeared would surpass Lu Xiao and become the leader of the Tianyuan Region’s young generation.
“The era of Lu Xiao is over.” Mu Liu sighed.
Mu Liu was also quite a proud person. All these years, he had repeatedly clashed with Lu Xiao and so naturally regarded him as his greatest opponent. He was inferior to him in every confrontation, however, and was therefore clear about Lu Xiao’s strength.
But now, even Lu Xiao was defeated in Zhou Yuan’s hand.
Furthermore, it was a defeat after Lu Xiao had done everything he could...this was enough to shut anyone’s mouth.
Zhou Yuan’s victory was very impressive.
Therefore, Mu Liu knew very well in his heart that, starting from that day, Lu Xiao’s era had passed and Zhou Yuan’s was beginning—in the future it would be Zhou Yuan ruling the Tianyuan Region’s young generation.
At a place near the foot of the mountain where people of the four pavilions were standing.
While the world was reverberating with applause and congratulations, this place had fallen into a strange silence.
On the Fire Pavilion’s side, everyone was in a trance. Lu Xiao’s defeat had brought about a shock so great that they still couldn’t believe the result in front of them—it was a nightmare.
After all, the Fire Pavilion was the leader of the four pavilions all these years, which had brought about the arrogance of the Fire Pavilion members. But now, the pillar of the Fire Pavilion was utterly defeated in front of them.
Their pride, their pillar, had collapsed.
Countless members of the Fire Pavilion didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Their expressions were extremely strange.
Zhu Lian had paled at the sight of Lu Xiao’s defeat. He knew that the Fire Pavilion’s good days had come to an end. It wasn’t that he had never thought that the Fire Pavilion would fall, but that he hadn’t expected everything to end in Zhou Yuan’s hands.
A few months ago, they had ridiculed the Wind Pavilion for constantly provoking the Fire Pavilion under the leadership of its new pavilion master. But at that time, they had never thought that the clown in their eyes would be the one to shatter their arrogance.
Zhu Lian turned his head and glanced at a person beside him. It was the vice pavilion master of the Fire Pavilion, Wang Chen.
When Zhou Yuan first came to the Wind Pavilion, Wang Chen was the first person who dealt with him.
As Wang Chen sensed Zhu Lian’s gaze, the corners of Wang Chen’s mouth twitched slightly. He understood Zhu Lian’s meaning from his expression, but what could he say? He wasn’t the only one who was blind—everyone in the Fire Pavilion, including Lu Xiao, disregarded Zhou Yuan as an evenly matched opponent.
And in the end, they paid a heavy price for it.
A strange noise sounded from the other side. Zhu Lian tilted his head to see Zuo Ya slowly collapsing to the ground, her face deathly pale and her eyes lifeless.
“How is it possible?!
She kept muttering. She had never even thought about this result.
She was still thinking about how she should taunt Yi Qiushui when Zhou Yuan lost, but now, all this fantasy had come to an abrupt end. Therefore, she suddenly collapsed when she recalled the price she needed to pay.
Not to mention the huge bet of 10,000 origin coins she had made, her actions alone would most likely become a joke within her social circle.
No one paid any attention to Zuo Ya because the morale of the Fire Pavilion had dropped to a terrifying level, and their depressed atmosphere made everyone feel extremely dejected.
Compared to the oppressive silence on the Fire Pavilion’s side, the quiet on the Wind Pavilion’s side appeared much happier.
Many members of the Wind Pavilion exchanged glances with one another; their eyes seemed to be making silent communication.
“Our pavilion master won?”
“That seems to be the case since Lu Xiao’s Genesis Qi has disappeared.”
“Are they congratulating our pavilion master on becoming the chief pavilion master?”
“Then what are we going to do?”
“I don’t know…”
Everyone, including Yi Qiushui and Ye Bingling, didn’t know what to do because in truth they weren’t prepared, so they simply remained silent in the end.
However, the corners of Yi Qiushui’s and Ye Bingling’s lips were curved upwards slightly, revealing the joy and excitement in their hearts.
The people of the Mountain Pavilion and the Forest Pavilion were slightly better in comparison. The match’s outcome impacted them far less than it did the Fire Pavilion and the Wind Pavilion. Complex expressions crossed their faces, but in the end they gradually accepted the result and understood that the Wind Pavilion’s future would no longer be the same.
It would be unwise of them to maintain their previous arrogance.
They had to change their mentality.
After all, the Wind Pavilion would be the overlord of the four pavilions in the future.
In the void, the five figures exuding vast and mighty power were also quietly watching the scene.
There wasn’t a hint of joy or sorrow on sect master Xuan Kun’s face. His eyes drooped, but the twitching of his eyebrows revealed his inner anger. It was just that his identity and status meant that he couldn’t release his anger.
The other two grand elders, Bai Ye and Bian Chang, glanced expressionlessly at sect master Xuan Kun without saying anything. After all, someone had fairly defeated Lu Xiao, and they couldn’t deny the result of the battle for any reason. Therefore, sect master Xuan Kun could only blame himself for his failed plan.
This was the rule. Even if they were grand elders, they had to obey the rules.
Clan elder Mu Ni gazed at the young figure on the mountain summit, a flicker of surprise in her beautiful eyes. She hadn’t expected Chi Jing to find such a talented young heaven pride.
It seems this little girl has good eyes.
All four grand elders remained silent, whereas Chi Jing smiled faintly, her burgundy hair flowing in the air. Staring at Zhou Yuan’s figure, a look of joy and satisfaction flashed across the depths of her eyes. The next moment, her clear voice resounded throughout the world.
“The result of the chief pavilion master battle is out.
“Starting today, the chief pavilion master of the four pavilions is...
“The Wind Pavilion’s Zhou Yuan!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
