Chapter 1000 Qin Lian
Lu Xiao quickly looked up, and when he saw a wave of figures led by a tall woman coming towards them, his face turned pale abruptly and he couldn't stop trembling.
The other Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples next to him bowed their heads like ostriches.
Zhou Yuan was a little surprised to see that the woman named Qin Lian had such an imposing manner and power to scare the Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples into such a state.
"Who is Qin Lian?" he asked Yi Qiushui.
Yi Qiushui covered his mouth and whispered, “An influential figure known throughout the Tianyuan region. “She is ranked sixth on the Heavenly Sun List, and once led the Tianyuan Region to win fifth place in the nine regions tournament, the best result in nearly a hundred years except yours.”
A look of surprise crossed Zhou Yuan's face. He was aware of the difficulty of the nine regions tournament. Since the Tianyuan Region was established, it had only reached third place even during its most flourishing period. Therefore, it was extremely difficult to win fifth place.
“Senior Sister Qin Lian is a disciple of the Heavenly Spirit Sect. No, she is now considered the youngest elder of the sect, and within the Heavenly Spirit Sect, she is known as the she-devil who sends chills to countless disciples.”
“She is in charge of disciplining and teaching the disciples, but her methods of correction are brutal and cruel. She must have strictly disciplined Lu Xiao and the others in the past for them to be so afraid of her. Although the Tianyuan region is somewhat weak these years, among the Four Pavilions, the most outstanding people of each generation were mostly disciples of the Heavenly Spirit Sect.”
Yi Qiushui looked at Zhou Yuan and said, "Until you appeared."
Zhou Yuan was surprised. His appearance had dimmed the bright light of this generation's Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples, and completely suppressed them. No doubt, Qin Lian felt that Lu Xiao and the other Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples were incompetent compared to him. No wonder Lu Xiao and the others trembled upon hearing his name.
It must have left a deep psychological shadow within them.
Yi Qiushui sighed. “The outside world says that the glory of the Tianyuan region stopped at Qin Lian's generation, because since her, each generation of young people became weaker and weaker. “If you hadn’t appeared, the Tianyuan Region would certainly be ranked at the bottom of the nine regions tournament again, and we might not have even been able to capture a stone statue.”
This was very likely, because without Zhou Yuan, the Tianyuan Region could only rely on Lu Xiao. But Lu Xiao didn't even have the confidence to win against the proud second-rate skies of the other eight regions.
The Tianyuan would become a laughingstock if he lost.
As the two whispered, the menacing wave of people finally arrived before the people of the Four Pavilions.
Zhou Yuan took a look at the woman in front.
He had an extraordinarily tall figure and his legs were straight and slender. She was dressed in a flawless blue robe, and it made her face look even more beautiful. Her sword-shaped eyebrows, in particular, made her eyes especially sharp and no one dared to look directly at her.
Her long hair, tied in a ponytail with a bamboo strip, reached down to her ankles and swayed gently as she walked, like the tail of a scorpion.
When their footsteps stopped, the atmosphere seemed to freeze for a moment.
“Elder Qin Lian,” Lu Xiao and the other Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples said cautiously.
There was no trace of an expression on Qin Lian's face. He cast a glance at Lu Xiao and the others before an icy voice sounded like cold winter. "You have disappointed me. You are the worst generation of the Heavenly Spirit Sect in many years. When I sent you to the Four Pavilions, I repeatedly reminded you to practice hard if you don't want to be trampled."
“Unfortunately, not a single one of you listened because you thought it was enough to dominate the Four Pavilions. If it weren't for special circumstances, you would have made the Tianyuan Region lose face!"
Mu Liu, Han Yuan and the others felt their scalp go numb because Qin Lian's words were too ruthless. He basically pointed Lu Xiao and the others in the face and scolded them like trash.
Lu Xiao and the others blushed in embarrassment and bowed their heads in shame.
“Senior Sister Qin Lian, please calm down. I think Lu Xiao and the others have done their best. After all, you can't ask everyone to be as good as you." A laugh sounded from behind Qin Lian. It was a man in white. He looked handsome, but when he smiled, he exuded an imposing aura.
The white-robed man immediately shifted his gaze towards Zhou Yuan and said, “You must be the head pavilion master Zhou Yuan, right? Our Tianyuan region should really thank you for turning the tide of the nine regions tournament. Haha, but Pavilion Chief Master Zhou Yuan must quickly make his way to the Heavenly Sun stage. After all, Divine Dwelling experts can only serve others in this war.”
"If you are afraid of something happening, you can follow us and we will make sure to protect you."
He spoke with a smile, but there was deep meaning in his words. It seemed like he wanted to tell the other Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples that although the current head pavilion master was notable, they should not feel too much pressure. Just like in this war involving the Tianyuan Region, Zhou Yuan, as a Divine Dwelling expert, would require the protection of himself and other Heavenly Sun stage experts.
Zhou Yuan looked at the man in white and Yi Qiushui whispered to him, “His name is Li Qingyue, the main pavilion master of the previous generation and now an intermediate Heavenly Sun stage expert.”
Zhou Yuan seemed a little surprised. I didn't expect it to be the former head pavilion master.
He could tell that Li Qingyue had some unclear feelings towards him, and it must be some kind of awkwardness and jealousy. After all, as the top pavilion master of the previous generation, the achievements he achieved were a world of difference from Zhou Yuan's.
Zhou Yuan said indifferently: “After today, I will enter closed-door training and attack the Heavenly Sun stage.”
Li Qingyue smiled. “Then I hope you succeed, but if you really make a breakthrough, according to the rules, you will have to lose the identity of the main pavilion master. As your senior, I can directly recruit you to the team.”
If Zhou Yuan were not the main pavilion master, he would no longer have the special elder-like status. He would become a normal expert who had just entered the Heavenly Sun stage, and in a battle situation, Li Qingyue was indeed qualified to give him orders.
Zhou Yuan shook his head and ignored him.
Li Qingyue still wanted to say something, but immediately fell silent when she felt a chilling gaze.
Qin Lian stepped forward and said indifferently, “Let alone you, the former Chief Pavilion Master, there has been no Chief Pavilion Master since the establishment of the Tianyuan Region that could compare to the present. Therefore, it is not necessary to have such jealous emotions.”
Li Qingyue shrugged, looking a little embarrassed.
Qin Lian stood in front of Zhou Yuan, and her tall height put her at the same eye level as Zhou Yuan. Her scorpion tail-like ponytail swung gently behind her.
As he stood in front of Zhou Yuan, a jet of extremely astonishing Genesis Qi pressure spread throughout his body, distorting the void with a yang energy unbearable for ordinary people. It was as if the void was burning.
Lu Xiao and the others couldn't help but back away frantically.
Only Zhou Yuan remained calm. The powerful Genesis Qi in his Divine Dwellings roared to resist the pressure of the woman in front of him.
The pressure lasted for more than a dozen seconds before gradually disappearing.
Zhou Yuan smiled slightly. "Does Elder Qin Lian also have any advice?"
The group seemed a little aggressive, but Zhou Yuan didn't find it strange. After all, he had suppressed all of the Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples of this generation to the point where they couldn't even launch an attack. Qin Lian and Li Qingyue were disciples of the Heavenly Spirit Sect, so it was inevitable that they would want to come out to suppress and intimidate Zhou Yuan.
Qin Lian stared at Zhou Yuan's face, studying him for a long moment, then finally nodded.
"You're not bad. I hope they reach the Celestial Sol stage as soon as possible. With your ability, I hope to see you once again create stormy waves on the Heavenly Sun stage and raise the prestige of my Tianyuan Region.”
“Furthermore, I would like to thank you on behalf of the Celestial Spirit Sect. “If it weren’t for you, the Tianyuan Region team led by Lu Xiao would have made the Heavenly Spirit Sect lose face in the nine regions tournament.”
Zhou Yuan seemed a little surprised by Qin Lian. The she-devil that made many Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples tremble did not seem as unreasonable as he imagined.
