Chapter 415: Celestial Yuan Brush Evolution
The instant Zhou Yuan's voice rang out, the Heavenly Yuan Brush began to shake violently as if summoning something. It was also at this moment that the numerous Heavenly Flame Lizards in the vicinity suddenly let out miserable screams.
Ao! Ao! Ao!
Zuoqiu Qingyu hurriedly looked over, only to see the Heavenly Flame Lizards madly rolling on the ground as blood flowed from their orifices. Within a few breaths, he watched in shock as the originally animated lizards began to fall dead wave by wave…
It was as if the wind of death had passed by, granting instant death to all the heavenly flame lizards…
The red land that had originally been filled with whistling had become deathly silent at this moment.
In the distance, Su Duan and the rest were dumbfounded as they watched this scene. It was as if they had seen a ghost, their faces filled with horror and fear.
The death of the lizards had been too strange.
Due to the distance and how difficult it was to see what was happening with the Heavenly Yuan Brush, they naturally did not know what Zhou Yuan had done. All they had seen was Zhou Yuan jumping among the Heavenly Flame Lizards, before they began to drop like flies.
Normally speaking, such Genesis Beasts were basically as tenacious as cockroaches. And yet, they were now falling one after another, as they had received a fatal blow.
Such a strange situation made Su Duan and the gang's hair stand on end.
“What the hell did he do?” a shaky voice asked.
Su Duan's expression fluctuated in confusion. In the next instant, his pupils suddenly shrank as he involuntarily shouted, “What is that?”
Everyone looked and saw that the corpses of the Heavenly Flame Lizards suddenly began to tremble as fine cow hair like shining threads slowly rose from them.
Each snow-white hair was wrapped around a spirit beast crystal. The crystals sparkled under the light, creating an extremely fascinating scene.
"Those hairs are like things!" Su Duan's gaze flickered rapidly in thought, finally realizing why the Heavenly Flame Lizards had died.
Su Duan gnashed his teeth and said, “What a cunning child! He placed those Genesis Runes to hinder the lizards' senses, before secretly sending these hairs into their bodies. Once he gave the order, the hairs wreaked havoc on the lizards' bodies. "No matter how tenacious these lizards are, they cannot survive such fatal injuries."
The others understood in an instant as amazement filled their hearts. Their fear finally faded away, because the unknown was the most terrifying thing of all, and they had nothing to fear now that they knew Zhou Yuan's method.
Although it was an unorthodox skill, it was only effective against Genesis Beasts.
On the hill, Zhou Yuan's eyes burned with desire as he watched the hairs carried by all the Beast Spirit Crystals as they returned.
There were probably almost a thousand Beast Spirit Crystals in total.
“This should be enough for the Heavenly Yuan Brush to evolve, right?” Zhou Yuan lightly pushed himself off the ground as countless snow-white hairs approached him and the Brush in his hand.
The crystals shattered the moment they touched the brush, while the Beast Spirits were devoured instantly.
Ray after ray of light began to emerge from the brush, making it grow brighter and brighter like a sun, the rays even enveloped Zhou Yuan's body.
Zuoqiu Qingyu quickly backed away, bewilderment filling her pretty eyes as she looked at the dazzling ball of light before her. She could faintly feel extremely powerful undulations of Genesis Qi brewing within him.
“It seems like your Brush is absorbing the Beast Spirit Crystals?” Zuoqiu Qingyu murmured in an astonished voice.
Only now did he understand why Zhou Yuan hadn't panicked when he told him that Su Duan was gathering a beast tide to send against him, and she seemed quite excited. From what she could see, he seemed to be in dire need of these Beast Spirit Crystals…
In the distance, Su Duan and the rest were also stunned by this scene. They looked at each other as their expressions gradually turned ugly.
Clearly, they were also beginning to realize that all their effort in gathering the beast tide had been a gift that Zhou Yuan had happily received with open arms…
At this moment, even Su Duan couldn't help but curse as he angrily punched a rock in front of him, causing cracks to spread rapidly.
He felt extremely embarrassed and furious. A few moments ago, he had felt so satisfied with how perfect his plan had been, but the cruel reality now showed him that his so-called "perfect plan" was akin to throwing a meat bun at a dog to scare it away.
While Su Duan was seething with rage and shame, the surrounding Genesis Qi seemed to become much more violent. Everyone could only watch as all the Genesis Qi in the area began to surge towards Zhou Yuan.
The Genesis Qi quickly took the shape of a huge funnel that was wide at the top and small at the bottom, a truly astonishing sight.
"What are you doing?" Su Duan and his gang were alarmed by this turn of events. They could also feel the shocking Genesis Qi undulations brewing within them.
"This is a sign that a Heaven Genesis Weapon is being born!" As the young sect master of the Flame Cauldron Sect, Su Duan had a wealth of experience. A single glance was enough to identify the phenomenon that was occurring before his eyes.
“However… although ordinary Heaven Genesis weapons will create some disturbance, it should not be as extreme as this!” Su Duan's eyes were glued to the brilliant ball of shining light as greed rose within them.
“It is definitely not an ordinary Heaven Genesis weapon!”
Although he was the young master of the Flame Cauldron Sect, and had seen Heaven Genesis Weapons before, there was no way that a huge commotion would be caused by a Heaven Genesis Weapon!
However, he also felt a slight heartache. From the looks of it, if they had not gathered so many Genesis Beasts with so much effort for Zhou Yuan and allowed him to collect so many Spirit Crystals, he would not have been able to form this Heaven Genesis Weapon.
The realization that he had contributed to this effort almost made Su Duan vomit a mouthful of blood.
This lasted for quite some time, before the dazzling light that enveloped Zhou Yuan finally faded away. The funnel-shaped storm Genesis Qi above descended rapidly, pouring completely into the Mottled Deep Black Brush silently floating beside him.
The great commotion had quietly calmed down.
Zhou Yuan looked towards the Heavenly Yuan Brush floating beside him as he slowly extended his hand and circled it.
Then, he felt the tremendous power surging within him.
A trace of excitement and happiness appeared on Zhou Yuan's face.
After several years in his hands, the Holy-level Genesis Weapon finally evolved to the Heaven-level today…
