Chapter 563 Beaten to death in a single palm
"Get rid of him!"
When Zhou Yuan's calm voice rang out, instant glances instantly appeared in the eyes of the many surrounding disciples. It had already been a while since they began to find Lei Qinghai a nuisance due to his attitude.
“Your Little Thunder Gate is merely a first-class sect and yet you dare to act as if you are something in front of our Cangxuan Sect? “Do you really think we are idiots?”
Wild Genesis Qi surged from their bodies, surging a split second later. Genesis Qi blasts tore through the air and quickly bombarded Lei Qinghai's figure.
A terrifying shockwave of Genesis Qi unfolded, tearing apart the surrounding ground.
Look after look he looked towards the center of the destruction. Although Lei Qinghai was powerful, there was no way he could withstand the combined attacks of so many people, right?
The dust gradually dispersed, as the expression on the numerous gazes that had converged towards the location suddenly changed.
Lei Qinghai's figure was nowhere to be found. All they could see was a silver ball that flickered with lightning as it floated above the torn ground. The metal ball was covered in cracks, and soon dimmed as it fell, before turning into dust.
Zhou Yuan's expression remained composed from start to finish. His eyebrows raised slightly, as he raised his head and looked at the sky. “No wonder you dare to come alone. It turns out that you are quite capable.”
Gu Hongyi, Zhou Tai, Lu Yan and the others followed his gaze, and saw a silver light flicker in the air, as Lei Qinghai's figure appeared. However, his expression was quite dark at this moment.
Lei Qinghai commented with a chilling voice: "Hehe, what a Cangxuan Sect. To think that one of the six overlord sects doesn't even care about face?"
He never imagined that Zhou Yuan would order the disciples to attack him. Didn't this guy realize that he was a core disciple of the Cangxuan Sect?
Zhou Yuan looked at the former as he shook his head, not bothering to respond. Since Lei Qinghai dared to set his sights on them, there was no need to give any so-called 'faces'.
Zhou Yuan was not an inflexible person. If it were possible to eliminate Lei Qinghai in the simplest way, the former would naturally not bother coming up with other tactics. It was you or me in the mythical utopia after all.
However, it was a bit unfortunate that they had not been able to finish off Lei Qinghai.
But it didn't matter much anyway, he was simply a guy who had recently entered the ninth layer after all...
Seeing Zhou Yuan's indifferent appearance, Lei Qinghai's face turned somewhat green with anger. Something told him that Zhou Yuan didn't really see him as a serious threat.
“Although I don't know how you managed to become the chief disciple of Saint Genesis Peak, how dare you act so complacent in front of me with the mere strength of the seventh layer? Do you really think that your status as chief disciple will have much use in the mythical utopia?” Lei Qinghai clenched his jaw, his tone chilling.
He was completely under the impression that Zhou Yuan's confidence was derived from his status as the head disciple of the Cangxuan Sect.
“I originally hoped to give Cangxuan Sect face and reach an agreement with you. But it seems like all you want to do is spit in my face! ”
"Since that is the case, don't blame me for not giving Cangxuan Sect face!"
Thunder rumbled the instant his words rang out, as powerful silver Genesis Qi rose from the top of his head, turning into silver clouds that shone with the radiance of lightning.
The factions already waiting impatiently at the foot of the mountain immediately saw the rising silver Genesis Qi. This was the sign they had agreed upon before.
The negotiations between Lei Qinghai and Zhou Yuan seem to have failed.
"Humph, it seems that the chief disciple of Saint Genesis Peak thinks he can rely on the reputation of the Cangxuan Sect in the Mythical Utopia." Someone sneered as an ominous light rose in their eyes.
“What a naive child. The only useful thing in the mythical utopia are fists. No matter what background he has, he will only be torn apart if he does not possess enough power!”
There was an unspoken rule of survival of the fittest in the mythical utopia. If a large sect like the Cangxuan Sect fell within, it would only mean that this generation of disciples was not good. When word of this spread, it would only mock the other factions and damage the former's reputation.
After all, the six overlord sects were superior in both quantity and quality. If they lost to other factions even with such advantages, they would have no one to blame but themselves.
The various factions rose into the sky in their Genesis Qi and spread out, surrounding the top of the mountain. It was quite an intimidating sight.
Only the proud geniuses nurtured by the various factions could enter the Mythical Utopia after all, and although there may be a gap between them and the elites of the Cangxuan Sect, it would not be too big. With the added numerical advantage, the other factions no longer had anything to fear, allowing them to stare wildly at the Cangxuan Sect disciples who were solemnly waiting.
Grave expressions appeared on the faces of the numerous disciples at the peak as they looked at the figures surrounding them. The other party's numbers had clearly exceeded his expectations.
“Unknowingly, we have attracted so many huh…” Zhou Yuan frowned slightly. It seemed that the disturbance caused by the Mythical Genesis essence had not been small.
However, go ahead and come to us! Zhou Yuan had already realized that it was impossible for them to peacefully harvest the Mythical Genesis essence in the Mythical Utopia, unless one displayed overwhelming enough power to deter someone with evil intentions.
Since that was the case, Zhou Yuan had no choice but to build a reputation for his team.
Lei Qinghai and his gang would be the stepping stones used to achieve this.
In the sky, Lei Qinghai gazed at the tightly closed figures on the peak as a mocking smile appeared on his face. Soon after, he looked at Zhou Yuan and said, “Zhou Yuan, I will give you one last chance. Allow us to ascend the mountain and harvest the essence of the Mythical Genesis. Furthermore, you have to hand over seventy percent of the Mythic Genesis essence you collected earlier!”
On the top of the mountain, anger flashed on the faces of all the Cangxuan Sect disciples.
"This guy is too much!" Gu Hongyi growled with gnashing teeth.
"He really thinks I'm a normal seventh level Origin-Alpha." Zhou Yuan chuckled. Lei Qinghai was obviously being too domineering because he believed that Zhou Yuan only had the strength of the seventh heaven.
He shook his head and stood up. With a grab, the Heavenly Yuan Brush appeared in his hand.
The black brush grew rapidly, its sharp tip pointing towards the ground at an angle.
Zhou Yuan raised his head and looked at the greedy gazes of the numerous figures surrounding them. In the end, his gaze stopped on Lei Qinghai and said indifferently, “I will also give you one last chance. Leave now if you know what's good for you. Although Cangxuan Sect does not take advantage of our status to bully others, if you insist on being a fool, don't blame us for showing no mercy.”
A mocking laugh immediately sounded in the sky, as someone said, “Kid, if it were the head disciple of Cangxuan Peak or Lightning Prison Peak saying those things, his words would have at least some weight. But a mere seventh layer like you should stop making a fool of yourself!”
Zhou Yuan's expression remained unchanged, unruffled by the other party's ridicule. He just nodded weakly with indifference in his eyes.
His figure suddenly began to become ethereal at this moment as he took a step forward.
The expression of the one who had mocked him immediately changed, because Zhou Yuan's figure had appeared in front of the former like a ghost.
"You are courting death!"
The individual bellowed, neither afraid nor alarmed. Instead, robust Genesis Qi hummed around him, revealing that he was also a seventh layer expert.
He sent out a punch accompanied by surging Genesis Qi and an alarming pressure.
However, Zhou Yuan did not even blink, as a jade glow emerged from his skin and a silver light flickered in the depths of his body. He raised one hand and swung it gently as if he were chasing a fly.
When Zhou Yuan's hand met the blow, both sides froze slightly for a brief moment. In the next instant, a sharp sonic sound rang out as the air exploded. Everyone watched in shock as the seventh-layer expert let out a blood-curdling screech, as his entire arm exploded into a bloody mist. In the end, his body fell from the sky like a bird whose wings had been broken and crashed into the forest…
The entire place fell silent at this moment.
Shock and fear rose in the many gazes as they looked at Zhou Yuan's figure. Did they never imagine that Zhou Yuan would be able to easily defeat a seventh layer expert without even circulating any Genesis Qi?
Their hearts shook upon seeing Zhou Yuan's indifferent expression, as a slight sense of uneasiness arose within them.
What should have been simply a seventh layer Saint Genesis Peak core disciple was clearly not as simple as they had thought…
