Chapter 540: Zhou Yuan enters the battle
Yaoyao's beautiful, tinkling voice rang out, stunning the surrounding Chosen Ones, before they began to frown a little. This was a high-level battle, and although Zhou Yuan was a core disciple who had even defeated Baili Che before, he was still quite weak compared to any of the Chosen here.
On paper, Zhou Yuan had no right to get involved in such a fight.
"Humph, you think too highly of a mere chief disciple!" Zhao Zhu laughed angrily. If he didn't fear Yaoyao and the ever-vigilant Tuntun, he would have already lashed out when Yaoyao called him a fool earlier.
Kong Sheng also said: "Junior Sister Yaoyao, the ten thousand feet aquatic beast hasn't even been dealt with, there is no need to so eagerly turn your thoughts to the Genesis essence, right?"
His words were insidious, implying that Yaoyao was trying to let Zhou Yuan have a part of the Ten Thousand Feet Aquatic Beast Genesis Essence. Such actions would definitely attract the disapproval of the other Chosen.
However, Li Qingchan and Ye Ge, who were more familiar with Yaoyao, did not share this opinion. As for Lu Jingshen and the other Chosen who had never had much contact with Yaoyao before, although they didn't say anything, their brows began to furrow.
"Since that is the case, take it as if I didn't say anything." Yaoyao's beautiful face was filled with indifference, she clearly had no intention of continuing the topic as she said, "Let's go Tuntun."
He actually intended to leave.
Yaoyao's character leaned more towards indifference, and with the exception of Zhou Yuan and Tuntun, she didn't care much about anyone else in the Cangxuan Sect. Therefore, he would feel nothing even if he allowed the seven peaks to be eliminated.
The other Chosen were shocked by her actions, clearly not expecting Yaoyao to be so decisive. To think that she would just leave in such a situation.
Li Qingchan hurriedly stepped forward to pull Yaoyao back. She was well aware of the latter's character and knew that Yaoyao was certainly capable of leaving them like this.
Li Qingchan looked towards the Kong Sheng duo and said calmly, “Big brother Kong Sheng, little brother Zhao Zhu, Yaoyao naturally has her reason for saying such things. With us currently in this situation, do you two have any other ideas?”
Ye Ge also contributed with a smile: “We will know if it works once we try it. Junior Brother Zhou Yuan has repeatedly created miracles since he entered the Cangxuan Sect, and although it is indeed a bit outrageous for him to try, what if another miracle occurs?”
The other Chosen also came back to their senses at this moment. Yaoyao and Tuntun were basically part of their main force, and if the two of them left, the rest would have to endure even more pressure against the ten thousand foot aquatic beast.
They immediately spoke one after another to indicate their agreement.
Kong Sheng and Zhao Zhu's expressions seemed quite ugly for a while, but they had no choice but to keep their mouths sullen. They had also not expected that Yaoyao would be able to leave so cleanly.
Li Qingchan looked towards Yaoyao and asked, "Yaoyao, since you say Zhou Yuan can do it, could you call him to try?"
Yaoyao nodded slightly and sent her spiritual power to approach Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan was quite surprised when he received the Spirit's message while still in battle. After briefly hesitating, he informed his squad members, before rising into the air and flying towards the Chosen in the distance under countless puzzled gazes.
As Zhou Yuan approached, the Chosen cast somewhat curious glances. Those who had only heard of him but had not met him like Lu Jingshen and Yang Zixiao, evaluated him thoroughly, as if hoping to find out what kind of abilities he had that would allow him to participate in a battle of this level.
"What's happening?" Zhou Yuan clasped his fists towards the Chosen, before turning towards Yaoyao.
Li Qingchan pointed at the ten thousand feet aquatic beast in the distance, and went straight to the heart of the matter. “The ten thousand foot aquatic beast has developed an ability called True Water Dragon Saliva. It boasts an extremely robust defense, and is even capable of connecting to the Genesis Reservoir, and providing an endless flow of Genesis Qi to the beast. Our combined power has been unable to deal with it, but Yaoyao says you can have a way?”
She hesitantly looked at Zhou Yuan towards the end.
The gazes of the other Chosen also converged on Zhou Yuan's face.
Zhou Yuan was a little stunned as he looked at Yaoyao, before calmly and confidently saying, “So that dark yellow cloak is called True Water Dragon Saliva, huh?”
The Chosen were somewhat surprised by his confident appearance. Was Zhou Yuan really able to break it?
"It's not impossible, but I have to discuss something with Yaoyao first." Zhou Yuan smiled, before pushing Yaoyao away. With a wave of his hand, Genesis Qi enveloped them both, preventing any noise from coming out.
Under the Genesis Qi barrier, the confidence on Zhou Yuan's face immediately crumbled as he smiled bitterly and said, “What the hell are you doing? If even so many Chosen cannot break that True Water Dragon Saliva, what do you expect me to do?”
Yaoyao watched Zhou Yuan's expression change with amusement, before saying, "Weren't you very sure before?"
The corners of Zhou Yuan's lips twitched as he said, "I can't show any weakness when your faces were so full of doubt, right? Especially Kong Sheng and Zhao Zhu, they were practically dying to break through cracks in my armor."
Since things had already reached this point, why not feign confidence instead of showing how lost he was and being laughed at?
Furthermore, since Yaoyao had called him, she would certainly have a plan even if he was still in the dark about it.
Sure enough, Yaoyao turned her gaze towards the ten thousand foot aquatic beast and said, “True Water Dragon Saliva is indeed very troublesome. However, that's just for everyone else. You, on the other hand, won’t find it a big problem at all.”
"Because?" Zhou Yuan asked puzzled. He had previously seen how even the combined power of the Chosen had failed to break through the True Water Dragon Saliva.
“True Water Dragon Saliva is made from the Dragon Qi that originated from the Origin Dragon Vein. It is this same Dragon Qi that gave him such amazing abilities.”
Yaoyao's red lips parted slightly as she slowly explained, “There are many types of Dragon Qi in this world, but they all have a common origin. Others may have no choice but to use brute force to break through, but you are different because of the blessing of the Holy Dragon contained in your body.”
“The blessing of the Holy Dragon…” Zhou Yuan finally understood. So that was the reason.
"That I have to do?"
“Although the ten thousand foot aquatic beast has gained some sentience, it is not a true living creature and therefore has limited intelligence. He only needed to find an opportunity to send a sliver of Holy Dragon Qi into the True Water Dragon Saliva, which would cause some variation to arise and cause him to lose his abilities for a while. The rest of us will take that opportunity to deal the creature a fatal blow.” Yaoyao smiled slightly.
Zhou Yuan breathed a deep sigh of relief when he heard this. Fortunately, it didn't sound too difficult.
"Okay then, we'll follow your plan." Zhou Yuan nodded. If they did not finish off the ten thousand foot aquatic beast, everyone would have to return empty-handed, which was obviously not in line with Zhou Yuan's expectations.
Therefore, he naturally would not shy away from doing his part.
Yaoyao said unhurriedly: "Of course you will, but you must first obtain enough benefits."
After finishing, he walked out of the Genesis Qi barrier with Zhou Yuan behind him.
“Are you done arguing? Can you do it or not?” Zhao Zhu looked coldly, his eyes filled with skepticism.
“Let Zhou Yuan handle the True Water Dragon Saliva.” Yaoyao declared.
Although the other Chosen were still somewhat bewildered, they clearly breathed a sigh of relief. Since Yaoyao was so confident, the odds should be pretty good, right?
“However…” Yaoyao suddenly stopped.
He looked towards the group of Chosen and slowly said, “If Zhou Yuan manages to neutralize the True Water Dragon Saliva, it will be a great contribution. If we finally manage to kill the ten thousand foot aquatic beast, I should obtain thirty percent of the Genesis essence.”
The Chosen Ones were a little alarmed by these words.
One must know that with Yaoyao and Tuntun added, the Genesis essence would already be divided into twelve portions, and each person would receive less than ten percent. And yet, Zhou Yuan wanted thirty percent?
Zhao Zhu's expression turned green with anger as he shouted:
“You are dreaming, what right does a mere chief disciple have to take thirty percent? Aren’t you afraid of dying to excess?!”
"I won't agree!"
