“As for you guys...neither of you are getting anything!”
When Zhou Yuan’s voice rang out, Liu Qingshu’s and Zhao Yunxiao’s faces clearly changed, especially Liu Qingshu’s. Her brows nearly arched till they were vertical, and frost covered her face.
She was a heaven pride of the Wanzu Region. Although she was right below the top ten, she was still one of Wanzu Region’s shining pearls with countless admirers.
Even Zhao Mushen would adopt a gentle tone when speaking to her.
Hence, she had a sense of superiority over Zhou Yuan from the start. In her eyes, a prestigious individual like herself was already being very respectful by inviting him over to discuss things.
Never in her wildest dreams would she have imagined that Zhou Yuan would dare to be so rude to her!
To think that he even had the gall to say such crude words! He is basically an unappreciative and ungrateful fool!
Liu Qingshu shot Zhou Yuan an icy stare. “Chief pavilion master Zhou Yuan is very bold to speak so rudely to my Wanzu Region. You’re the first person to do so for many years!”
Liu Qingshu was evidently not easy to deal with. Zhou Yuan’s words had clearly been directed at her, but she had twisted it to become the Wanzu Region.
If word of this were to spread, the entire Wanzu Region would be hostile to Zhou Yuan.
She sneered and said, “If I meet senior brother Zhao later on, I will tell him what you said word for word.”
This was an attempt to intimidate him using Zhao Mushen’s name.
Contrary to her expectation, Zhou Yuan merely chuckled and said, “Zhao Mushen, huh? Don’t worry. There is already a debt to settle between us. I already encountered him in the first mini domain, and he is indeed very formidable.”
These words shocked Liu Qingshu and Zhao Yunxiao. Zhou Yuan had met Zhao Mushen in the first mini domain?
Then why could he still appear here?
Could he have escaped from Zhao Mushen’s hands? But the team he brought didn’t seem to have suffered much losses.
Liu Qingshu frowned. “Full of nonsense. I’m starting to think you talked your way into becoming chief pavilion master. If you really did meet my first senior brother, how could you possibly have escaped given your abilities?”
In her heart, Zhao Mushen was an invincible existence in their generation. Zhou Yuan, on the other hand, was someone no one in Hunyuan Heaven had even heard of before a year ago.
Although others said that he was a super dark horse, was there any lack of such super dark horses over the years? Despite this, all of these super dark horses could only become stepping stones for true monsters like Zhao Mushen, becoming mere paragraphs in his invincible legend.
Hence, Liu Qingshu did not believe a single word Zhou Yuan had said.
By the side, Zhao Yunxiao also laughed and mocked, “You’re full of talent. To think that you would even resort to such means to try and improve your reputation. How childish.”
Liu Qingshu shook her head as a faint trace of iciness filled her voice. “Zhou Yuan, I have zero interest in playing such games with you. Since you refuse to acknowledge the outcome of our discussion, leave this mini domain with your team.”
Zhou Yuan stared at the pair as if he was looking at two idiots. “Leave? Do you think you’re Zhao Mushen?”
The mockery in his words made Liu Qingshu’s face even icier. “It seems that you want to use force?”
Amused, Zhao Yunxiao said, “Although your team consists of the Tianyuan Region elites, if you act rashly, the two of us will have no choice but to join forces and teach you the rules.”
As he spoke, his figure moved behind Zhou Yuan, blocking his retreat path.
At the same time, Zhao Yunxiao exchanged a look with Liu Qingshi, and both waved their hands.
Majestic Genesis Qi immediately erupted from the two teams behind them. Over a thousand figures shot forth, landing directly between Zhou Yuan and the Tianyuan Region team.
Meanwhile, Yi Qiushui also sensed the atmosphere change. A fierce look arose in her eyes as she immediately gave a command. Torrential Genesis Qi exploded from the Tianyuan Region group as they faced the other two teams.
“It seems that the negotiations have fallen through.” Shang Xiaoling’s expression was grave.
Yi Qiushui nodded. “Act according to the plan.”
On the way here, Zhou Yuan had already anticipated this outcome and had come up with a countermeasure.
“Are we really going to release all of our Genesis Qi when we fight?” Shang Xiaoling was a little hesitant. After arriving at the Fallen Abyss, it had become rather difficult to replenish their Genesis Qi, causing them to use it sparingly. However, Zhou Yuan’s plan was for them to use their Genesis Qi without reservation.
But if they did so, though their battle power would be greater, what would they do about their Genesis Qi consumption? Much time would undoubtedly be wasted if they had to stay here to recover.
Yi Qiushui was silent for a moment before she said, “Do as he says. Only by overcoming the now will we have a next time.”
Shang Xiaoling said nothing further on this topic and swiftly disseminated the instructions.
Genesis Qi unfurled as the three parties faced each other.
On the hill, Zhou Yuan likewise sensed the face-off behind them. He tilted his head, shot a glance at Zhao Yunxiao, then turned towards Liu Qingshu with a smile. “Are the two of you planning to attack me together?”
Liu Qingshu displayed a faint smile and answered, “Chief pavilion master Zhou Yuan is the number one Divine Dwelling expert of the Tianyuan Region after all. Isn’t it logical for us to give you such respect?”
She was very cunning. Although she appeared to have nothing but disdain for Zhou Yuan’s status, she did not hesitate to use the numbers advantage against him.
She was completely oblivious to the mockery in Zhou Yuan’s words.
The prettier a woman, the more dangerous she was.
Zhou Yuan’s expression remained nonchalant. “Is this your final decision?”
Zhao Yunxiao let out an icy chuckle. “Zhou Yuan, are you still going to put up an act at this juncture? Do you really believe your ninth rank has any worth in our eyes?
“I may have failed to kill you in a single strike back then, but you can try me again today!”
Zhao Yunxiao was very envious of Zhou Yuan’s current status. After all, the Tianyuan Region was still one of the nine regions no matter how much it had fallen. As someone who could become the core of one of the nine regions, Zhou Yuan’s status was essentially equal to Wu Yao’s, the very same status Zhao Yunxiao had failed to achieve even after working hard for many years.
And yet, this Cangxuan Heaven country bumpkin, whom he had only disdain for, had actually achieved it!
Boundless Genesis Qi abruptly soared into the sky. Genesis Qi sparkled in the air, revealing countless stars. There were a total of 33 million!
Such Genesis Qi foundations were stronger than Lu Hai’s and the others’. From this, one could see how much strength the Wushen Region’s heaven prides had concealed. It was all for the sake of astonishing everyone in the nine regions tournament.
As Zhao Yunxiao felt the boundless power in his body, his heart overflowed with confidence. He cast a disdainful glance at Zhou Yuan and shouted, “Zhou Yuan, since you cannot appreciate our kind gesture, I will make you understand that you don’t even have the qualifications to bargain with us!
“Since you spat in our faces, don’t blame me for stomping your face into the mud!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
