Chapter 533: Sword Peak at a Dead End
A torrential storm fell over this area of the sky. If one looked closer, they would discover that each raindrop was composed of a Genesis Rune, and contained terrifying power. When they fell in such overwhelming numbers, even a mountain range would be flattened by their power.
Amidst the pouring rain, Kong Sheng's expression was a little grave as the sword in his hand danced, transforming into countless swords that enveloped his entire body. Each slash cut away countless raindrops, making it impossible for any of them to get close to him.
These raindrops were not only made of Genesis Runes, but also contained spiritual power. Any fall that landed on the body would result in an assault on the Spirit. As such, even Kong Sheng did not dare to let anyone touch him.
However, even though he was currently at the limit of Genesis Runes that Yaoyao had built, he was not afraid due to the Rune Breaking Blood Art on his sword, allowing him to easily dispel any Genesis Runes that crossed his path.
While defending himself from the pouring rain, Kong Sheng suddenly raised his head, looked towards a certain place and said, "Although your limit is formidable, it does not pose much of a threat to me."
Space rippled as Yaoyao's thin figure was revealed.
Her clear, indifferent eyes looked down as her red lips parted slightly. "A simple rune-breaking blood art fills you with so much confidence?"
"You should take a look at your sword."
Kong Sheng's gaze immediately turned to his sword, as his pupils shrank slightly. The blood patterns on the blade had become fainter.
"Raindrop Genesis Runes?!" Kong Sheng's heart shook.
His expression became a little uglier as he looked at Yaoyao and said, “So your limit was not directed at me, but at my Rune Breaking Blood Art!”
Yaoyao said indifferently, “Although the rune-breaking blood art is capable of countering some Genesis runes, it is in turn also countered by certain Genesis runes. "That's why I told you that you are too naive if you think that the technique will allow you to disregard the Genesis Runes."
Kong Sheng frowned. He never expected that from the beginning, Yaoyao was not aiming at him but at his Rune Breaking Blood Art...
Once his Rune Breaking Blood Art was neutralized, his advantage would also vanish.
"It seems that I have to fight you with my own strength." Kong Sheng sighed softly as his eyes gradually turned fierce, as alarming Genesis Qi undulations slowly rose from his body.
He had originally planned to use the Rune Breaking Blood Art to defeat Yaoyao as quickly as possible. However, it was now clear that his plan had not been realistic. Yaoyao was much more troublesome than he had imagined.
“I can only hope that Baili Che can quickly defeat Zhou Yuan and free the Sword Peak disciples from the border.”
Yaoyao seemed to read Kong Sheng's thoughts, her lips raised slightly as she said, "If you still hope to count on Baili Che, I'm afraid you will be disappointed."
Kong Sheng's eyes narrowed as he said coldly, "What do you mean?"
He was currently at the edge of Yaoyao and could not sense the situation outside.
With a light touch of his Genesis Rune brush, the surrounding space began to ripple, revealing the outside world. Kong Sheng's gaze immediately looked towards Zhou Yuan and Baili Che's battlefield, as his students shrank abruptly.
He could only see Zhou Yuan's figure, and Baili Che's Genesis Qi undulations had already disappeared from the Genesis reservoir.
"How can this be?!" At this juncture, even someone like Kong Sheng couldn't help his expression changing as he said, "How could Baili Che have lost to Zhou Yuan?"
Kong Sheng completely understood Baili Che's strength, while Zhou Yuan was merely the core disciple of Saint Genesis Peak. There should have been a substantial gap between the two individuals.
However, Yaoyao couldn't be bothered to answer Kong Sheng's question, simply looking at him in amusement.
Kong Sheng also realized that his question was quite ridiculous as the truth was already clear before his eyes. His expression fluctuated indefinitely for a while, but in the end, he could only grit his teeth and say in a low voice, “That useless trash!”
Now that Baili Che had lost to Zhou Yuan, the already unfavorable situation would only get much worse.
As frustration surged in Kong Sheng's heart, the distant Zhou Yuan felt the attention on him and immediately raised his head to look in the direction of Yaoyo and Kong Sheng.
His gaze met Kong Sheng's for a moment, before he laughed. In the next instant, his figure suddenly shot towards the Saint Genesis Peak fighters and the elite Sword Peak disciples.
After defeating Baili Che, Zhou Yuan was obviously now free to clean up the escaped elite disciples.
With their joining the battle, the Sword Peak side immediately descended into chaos as panic rose on the faces of the numerous disciples.
Several figures quickly walked out of the group, powerful Genesis Qi surging around their bodies, no less weak than Yuan Hong's. They had sent top disciples who were second only to Baili Che in an attempt to stop Zhou Yuan.
However, their attempts were clearly futile. Zhou Yuan was far from being comparable to his past self during the selection of the head disciple. If he fought Yuan Hong again now, the latter would barely be able to fight.
The same result awaited these top Sword Peak disciples.
It didn't take long for one disciple after another to be seriously injured by Zhou Yuan and expelled from the warehouse.
At this scene, the explorers from the various peaks could only shake their heads inside. The situation had already fallen completely in favor of Saint Genesis Peak. With Kong Sheng and Zhao Zhu unable to leave their battlefields, there was no one on the Sword Peak side who could stop Zhou Yuan.
As time passed, all of the Sword Peak disciples, with the exception of Kong Sheng and Zhao Zhu, would be eliminated from the ceremony.
This was also something Kong Sheng naturally understood.
Therefore, his expression had become extremely ugly. He had not expected the situation to develop this way.
Sword Peak was overwhelmingly superior to Saint Genesis Peak, and dealing with the latter should have been an easy task. Who could have imagined that not only would they fail to achieve a crushing victory, but the Holy Genesis Peak would force them into such terrible states?
Yaoyao's bright eyes looked at him and said unhurriedly, "Sword Peak can still maintain some dignity if you guys choose to withdraw from the Genesis Repository."
Kong Sheng's eyes turned icy cold as he coldly replied, "In your dreams!"
"Then we'll have to kick them out one by one." With a small tug of his wrist, his Genesis Rune brush descended as countless Genesis Runes formed instantly. Lightning and fire intertwined, pulsing with unmatched violence.
Lightning and fire Genesis Runes writhed like giant pythons as they advanced towards Kong Sheng.
Torrential Genesis Qi exploded from Kong Sheng's body, clearly no longer holding anything back as anger fueled him.
A tremendous battle broke out between the two, the scale clearly much larger than the previous fight between Zhou Yuan and Baili Che.
However, no matter how fiercely Kong Sheng attacked, he was unable to escape the merciless attack of the countless Genesis Runes, leaving him with no choice but to confront each of them with his full power.
As time passed, Kong Sheng's attacks became more and more anxious, because he could see more and more Sword Peak disciples being eliminated after Zhou Yuan entered the battlefield.
At the disorienting sky boundary below, even more Sword Peak disciples were locked in a fierce battle with the aquatic beasts as they were eliminated one after another.
This was a great loss for Sword Peak.
As the explorers from the different peaks watched, they understood that the outcome of the battle was already evident.
If the situation continued, Sword Peak would finally be left with his two Chosen, while all the other disciples would be eliminated… it would be a very miserable conclusion.
"Holy Genesis Peak is truly ruthless." The scouts looked at each other, seeing the fear and caution in each other's eyes. It seems that they could no longer see Saint Genesis Peak in the same way as before.
"Sword Peak has kicked a metal board this time, and has lost all of his face..."
The explorers from the different peaks sighed. Saint Genesis Peak had core disciples before, but none of them had managed to change anything. Who could have imagined that Saint Genesis Peak would suddenly undergo a complete transformation after Zhou Yuan became the head disciple?
Time flowed slowly.
Only a few dozen elite Sword Peak disciples remained, surrounded by several hundred Saint Genesis Peak disciples. The former had no way out, and there was no longer any sign of the playful fun when they had chased Holy Genesis Peak.
Zhou Yuan calmly looked at the terrified Sword Peak disciples. Without hesitation, he waved his hand and said, "Eliminate them all."
After eliminating all the other Sword Peak disciples, they could focus on dealing with Kong Sheng and Zhao Zhu.
However, just as the Holy Genesis Peak side was preparing to attack, thunder suddenly rumbled.
Zhou Yuan raised his head, frowning slightly as he looked into the distance, where thunder clouds gathered as numerous lightning bolts flashed.
After the lightning bolt, the boundless Genesis Qi began to creep towards them from other directions, as powerful figures appeared in the sky one after another.
Zhou Yuan could see some familiar faces among them.
Lu Yan shouted in surprise at his side, "The Chosen of the other five peaks!"
Zhou Yuan's eyes narrowed slightly. As their trembling battle raged on, the Chosen Ones from the other five peaks finally arrived…
