Chapter 990 Settled

Watching Zhou Yuan draw closer, Wu Yao’s face didn’t ripple in the slightest. Her face was only a bit pale from the exhaustion of Genesis Qi. Even at a time like this, there wasn’t a defeated look in her phoenix eyes, only a somewhat complicated expression.

She stared at Zhou Yuan's face. When she met Zhou Yuan for the first time in Great Wu’s capital, she had never thought he would stand in front of her in such a way.

This man who was born with the Sacred Dragon Blessing indeed has remarkable talent.

But what she admired the most wasn't Zhou Yuan’s talent but his tenacity. He didn't give up on life even after he had fallen to the bottom. 

Although she didn’t know what kind of difficulty Zhou Yuan had faced from the moment he had unblocked the eight meridian channels and had set foot on the path of cultivation, she could imagine that it must have been filled with problems that would make ordinary people give up thousands of times already. 

But Zhou Yuan had persisted, and in the end, he had risen and reversed his fortunes.

Wu Yao didn't find this result difficult to accept. Instead, she let out a sigh of relief and felt her body grow much lighter, as though a weight had been lifted from her. 

The destined battle had finally come to an end.

King Wu’s face flashed in her mind, and she smiled faintly in her heart. Father, your plotting has completely unraveled today. Our Wu family does not have the capability to carry the Sacred Dragon Blessing.

Wu Yao slowly closed her eyes, saying indifferently, “Take it back.”

Given her current state, she was no match for Zhou Yuan. Of course, even if her Genesis Qi was completely restored, she still didn't stand a chance against Zhou Yuan, who had broken the Divine Dwelling stage limit. Therefore, she saw no significance in fighting back.

Her body was slender and beautiful, her back straight. Although defeated, she still had pride in her heart.

Zhou Yuan stared at Wu Yao for a moment, waves similarly surging in his heart. Ever since he unblocked the eight meridian channels and began cultivation, he had been waiting for this day.

At this time, he would take back everything he had lost.

Father, I did it…, Zhou Yuan said softly in his heart.

He extended his hand and placed it gently on Wu Yao’s slender shoulder. For a moment, he could feel her trembling. 

Her expression was enough to make a man of steel soft and weak, but Zhou Yuan remained expressionless and wasn't affected. He had worked incredibly hard for many years, so no matter what, he had to take back what belonged to him.

A dragon roar echoed throughout Zhou Yuan's body.

Rays of light gathered behind him and gradually took the shape of a dragon-like silhouette.

The appearance of the gigantic dragon silhouette caused even the universe Genesis Qi to fluctuate violently. Zhou Yuan’s figure showed signs that he was about to merge into the world.

The Sacred Dragon phenomenon.

The giant dragon silhouette opened its mouth wide and inhaled sharply.

Wu Yao's body violently quivered again as rays of intense light emerged from her. Suddenly, a powerful and mysterious aura surged from the top of her head like smoke rising in spirals into the dragon's mouth.

That familiar aura was the Sacred Dragon Blessing that Wu Yao had taken away when Great Wu was destroyed!

She could feel her life force weaken as the Sacred Dragon Blessing left her body. She understood that once Zhou Yuan took away the last of the Sacred Dragon Blessing remaining in her body, she would also perish. 

In a battle between the dragon and the phoenix, only the one that devoured the other would survive.

The anguished roar that King Wu let out when he was beheaded flashed to Wu Yao’s mind.

“As expected...”

There wasn't a hint of fear in Wu Yao’s heart. Instead, it was utterly peaceful.

The movements between Zhou Yuan and Wu Yao caught countless people’s attention and drew many exclamations. Even at such a distance, they could feel Wu Yao’s life force weakening.

On the Wushen Region’s side, thousands of members were livid. They soared into the air one after another and quickly rushed towards the last stone statue. 

They were all enraged.

Wang Xi, Li Tongshen and the others scrunched their brows in a frown. They didn’t know what was happening between Zhou Yuan and Wu Yao, but the situation didn't look good for Wu Yao.

“Is Zhou Yuan taking away the Blessing from Wu Yu's body? What's going on? Does he also have the Taotie Blessing?” Jiu Gong couldn't help asking. Wu Yao didn't die when Zhao Mushen swallowed her Blessing, so why did she become like this when facing Zhou Yuan?

“No, the two’s Blessings are very similar...as though they originated from the same body”

Bewilderment filled Jiu Gong’s heart. But if Zhou Yuan exhausted Wu Yao’s life force here, he would no doubt anger the Wushen Region. It wasn’t a wise move for him.  

On the Tianyuan Region’s side, Yi Qiushui, Ye Bingling and the others all wore solemn expressions.

Lu Xiao couldn’t help but say, “What is Zhou Yuan doing? He already won. If something happens to Wu Yao, he can't get away with it!”

No one answered him, and terrified feelings overshadowed the joy that had filled everyone a moment ago.

After all, nobody could say anything if one of them died in the battle, but Wu Yao clearly had no strength to fight back anymore. If Zhou Yuan took her life while she was in such a state, it could become troublesome for him.

...

“Your Highness...”

Su Youwei’s eyes flashed with worry as she looked at Wu Yao, who was on the verge of collapsing.

She wasn’t worried about Wu Yao but of the consequences that Zhou Yuan would face after he stripped away all of Wu Yao’s life force. It was said that the Wushen Region’s supreme sovereign attached great importance to Wu Yao.

Zhou Yuan indifferently looked at Wu Yao’s pale but beautiful face. His eyes flickered.

It was then that Wu Yao closed her eyes and said indifferently, “Zhou Yuan, what are you waiting for? When my father took away your Sacred Dragon Blessing, he didn't hesitate at all.

“I told you before that the Sacred Dragon Blessing is what I hate the most. If it weren’t for it, my mother wouldn't have died, my little brother, Wu Huang, wouldn't have become that kind of person. I wouldn't have killed my own father and be left alone in this world.  

“So...now, I'll return it to you!”

She folded her hands together in a seal, and her body shook violently. A long mournful roar seemed to ring out as a mysterious aura rose from her head. It turned into a dragon silhouette and sped into the mouth of the gigantic dragon behind Zhou Yuan.  

She unexpectedly forced out the last wisp of the Sacred Dragon Blessing!

The moment the Sacred Dragon Blessing left her body, the glow on Wu Yao’s face dimmed, and her delicate body slowly fell forward.

Zhou Yuan stretched out his arms and held her by her scented shoulders. She looked him in the eye with a complicated expression and whispered, “From now on, the grudges between our two families are settled.”
