Chapter 536 Training
On a huge island located in the central region of the Genesis Reservoir.
This island was currently the busiest place in the entire reservoir. All the disciples of the seven peaks gathered here, evidently planning to work together against the impending crisis.
Among the seven peaks gathered, only the Sword Peak disciples were a little unhappy. The disciples from the other peaks looked at them in a strange manner, and often caught others pointing and whispering as they passed by, making them feel extremely sullen.
However, there was nothing they could say in response. After all, even they themselves had not expected that nearly ten thousand Sword Peak disciples, two Chosen Ones, and a core disciple would finally lose in such a pitiful manner to Saint Genesis Peak.
This was really humiliating for them.
Unlike Sword Peak's bad mood, the Saint Genesis Peak disciples found that their status seemed to have increased substantially. In the past, they had basically been transparent to the eyes of the other disciples, and no one would pay attention to them. In fact, when receiving missions in the sect, the other disciples would even find excuses to run away when they heard that a teammate was from Saint Genesis Peak, something that angered the Saint Genesis Peak disciples.
In comparison, the attitudes of the other disciples were much better now, which made the Holy Genesis Peak disciples happy and grateful.
Of course, his thanks were not directed at the other peak disciples, but rather at Zhou Yuan and Yaoyao.
All the Saint Genesis Peak disciples understood that if it were not for the duo, Saint Genesis Peak would only be able to challenge Sword Peak in their dreams.
As such, the Saint Genesis Peak disciples were truly glad that Zhou Yuan had become their chief disciple.
On the highest peak in the center of the island.
A temporary pavilion had been built at this location, where Chu Qing, Li Qingchan, the other Chosen Ones, and the chief disciples of the various peaks were currently gathered. This was basically a gathering of the top disciples of the seven peaks.
Inside the pavilion, Genesis Qi took the form of a light screen that turned into a map.
Li Qingchan’s pretty face was a little solemn as he pointed towards a certain point in the northwest sector of the map and said, “The ten thousand feet aquatic beast undulations originated from this location. "Our scouts tell us that countless aquatic beasts have gathered there, making it very difficult to approach."
“The ripples have become increasingly stronger, and if our guess is correct, the ten thousand foot aquatic beast is still in the process of forming. At this rate, it would take at most two days for it to fully form.”
"When that happens, it will immediately perceive us as foreign presences in the warehouse and proceed to exterminate us."
They all had a serious expression, probably feeling the pressure of the ten thousand foot aquatic beast.
Zhou Yuan suddenly asked, "Can we kill it before it is completely formed?"
"Immature and arrogant." Zhao Zhu looked at Zhou Yuan and sneered.
Although their battle was over, Zhao Zhu clearly held a grudge due to Sword Peak's crushing defeat. As such, there was naturally no way for him to leave the opportunity to mock Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan retorted mercilessly, “An already defeated opponent.”
Zhao Zhu's expression immediately turned green with anger.
Zhou Yuan simply ignored him and looked towards Li Qingchan. The latter shook her head and explained: “First, there is not enough time anymore. In addition, it hides in the extreme depths of the reservoir, while it is very tiring for us to move in the reservoir, which makes it impossible to stop for a long time in its depths. Therefore, we cannot go into the depths to kill him."
"Furthermore, there are countless aquatic beasts guarding it, with no shortage of thousand-foot aquatic beasts among them."
Zhou Yuan frowned slightly. Tank pressure was not a problem for him, and he could roam for long periods of time at a low cost. However, he couldn't deal with the tight security.
“Given the current circumstances, we will have to wait for the ten thousand foot aquatic beast to form and start attacking us. Then we will concentrate our forces and meet him in battle.”
"Although a ten thousand foot aquatic beast will be formidable, it is not impossible for us to fight it if we work together." Shang Chunqiu smiled, battle lust in his eyes. There was no sign of fear due to the terror of the ten thousand foot aquatic beast.
The other Chosen nodded. Those who could become Chosen were naturally talented and proud individuals who would not be scared by a ten thousand foot aquatic beast.
"I have another question." Kong Sheng suddenly spoke.
"If the ten thousand feet aquatic beast is killed by us, how will we divide the Genesis essence."
These words immediately caused the crowd to fall silent, as a burning desire flashed across their eyes.
The Genesis essence of a thousand-foot aquatic beast could give them a baptism of eight Dragons, but the highest level baptism of nine Dragons had never appeared even until now. As such, many had hypothesized that a higher quality Genesis essence was required.
The Genesis essence of a ten thousand foot aquatic beast would certainly meet this requirement.
In other words, those who obtained the Ten Thousand Foot Aquatic Beast Genesis Essence would probably reach the highest level of nine Dragon baptism!
The current generation of Chosen were at the Alpha Origin stage of the ninth layer and thus, they were doing their best to strengthen their Genesis Qi foundation in preparation for entering the Divine Dwelling stage.
However, at his level, creating each additional Genesis Qi star in his Qi Dwelling required a great amount of effort.
A baptism of nine Dragons would undoubtedly result in a substantial growth in their Genesis Qi foundations, a temptation that even the Chosen could not resist.
In addition to the threat of the ten thousand feet aquatic beast, the giant rewards also played an important role in allowing the seven peaks to form an alliance in such a smooth manner.
The silence lasted for quite some time, before it was finally broken by Li Qingchan. “Whoever contributes the most will be able to enjoy fifty percent of their Genesis essence, while the other fifty will be shared among the participants in the battle.”
The others pondered for a bit, before nodding in agreement. This was a great motivation for everyone to do their best. After all, they had also calculated that at least fifty percent of the Genesis essence of a ten thousand foot aquatic beast was required to obtain a nine-Dragon blessing…
"As we all agree, we will follow this plan."
While the disciples of the seven peaks prepared and waited, Sect Master Qing Yang and the rest of the sect's upper echelons were closely observing the Genesis Reservoir.
“Hehe, that girl Qingchan from Snow Lotus Peak has the bearing of a great general.” Sect Master Qing Yang's sharp gaze could see everything, and he had naturally seen Li Qingchan's capabilities in guiding the alliance. As such, he couldn't help but shower her with praise.
Peak Master Lianyi smiled and said, “Qingchan may have overstepped his limits, such responsibilities are rightfully Chu Qing’s.”
Sect Master Qing Yang shook his head helplessly. "Don't count on that lazy guy to take on such tasks."
"Since the sect master is well aware of Chu Qing's laziness, you shouldn't cause such a commotion." Peak Master Bai Mei chuckled. He was naturally referring to the ten thousand foot aquatic beast, because the sect master was the one who had control over the amount of Source Dragon Qi that was poured into the reservoir. All he needed was to let in a little more to meet the conditions for the birth of a ten thousand foot aquatic beast.
Sect Master Qing Yang sighed softly, before saying, “The mythical utopia is about to rise again. When that happens, all the young geniuses in the entire Cangxuan Heaven will gather, and a storm of blood will soon follow. I have created this aquatic beast with the intention of training you.”
"We can give them protection marks in the sect, but once they enter the mythical utopia, they will only be able to rely on themselves, and a little carelessness is all it would take for them to lose their lives."
“After all, the interior of the mythical utopia is a truly dangerous place. Not only will they have to face numerous ferocious Genesis Beasts, but they will also have to protect themselves from the other genies' schemes. Has there ever been a time when the proud geniuses of our sect have not been buried in mythical utopia?”
"If you can't even pass this little test, it would be better if you didn't go to the mythical utopia."
Everyone else fell silent upon hearing Sect Master Qing Yang's words. In the end, they nodded, understanding his painstaking efforts.
They turned their gaze towards the Genesis Reservoir and looked at the disciples gathered on the island.
"I hope these little ones also realize the sect master's intentions, and do not disappoint..."
