Chapter 565: Vaporized
Thunder shook the earth, as the lightning seal between Lei Qinghai's palms suddenly shot out like a roaring Lightning Dragon. Lightning flashed across the sky, as the seal charged towards Zhou Yuan with terrifying destructive force.
In the distance, worry crossed the eyes of Zhou Tai, Lu Yan and the others. The strength displayed by Lei Qinghai was even greater than Baili Che during the Genesis Deposit Ceremony.
Although they knew that Zhou Yuan had become much stronger after the baptism of the nine Dragons, they had not had the opportunity to truly fight recently. As such, they were not very clear about his true battle power.
If Zhou Yuan ended up being suppressed in this fight with Lei Qinghai, it would be a serious blow to the former's reputation.
After all, he was a core disciple of the Cangxuan Sect, while Lei Qinghai was merely from the Little Thunder Gate.
Under the numerous observing gazes, the seal of roaring lightning arrived, leaving a brilliant trail of light behind it as it began to mercilessly crush Zhou Yuan's location.
In the next instant, Zhou Yuan's figure was drowned in a resplendent glow.
Lei Qinghai stood proudly in the air, an eerie chill in his eyes as he looked at the dazzling scene. "Arrogant fellow, to think that you actually dared to directly confront my Thunder King Seal!"
"Since you are so insistent on courting death, don't blame me for not showing mercy."
This Thunder King seal of his was a Genesis technique unique to the Small Thunder Gate, and it was incomparably dominant in nature. Even he did not know how many people had fallen in the battle.
Currently, it seemed that Zhou Yuan would soon become the latest addition to his illustrious battle achievements.
Under the many observation gazes, a lightning bolt shone brightly for quite some time, before gradually fading away. Next, the inner landscape began to reveal itself.
Lei Qinghai immediately looked over. No matter how strong Zhou Yuan's body is, he will surely be severely injured after being hit by the Thunder King's seal, and a severely injured Zhou Yuan was obviously not going to be Lei Qinghai's match.
As such thoughts swirled in Lei Qinghai's head, his eyes slowly opened when he saw the young, slim figure standing silently amidst the receding light.
There didn't seem to be any injuries on his body.
The smile on Lei Qinghai's lips slowly stiffened.
A flickering Thunder King Seal hovered over Zhou Yuan, while golden Genesis Qi filled the area behind him, seemingly forming a thousand-foot-wide starry sky in which golden stars twinkled.
Powerful Genesis Qi undulations surged from the starry sky, pushing against the descending Thunder King Seal, and making it impossible for it to fall further.
The various observing factions immediately erupted, as they looked at the starry sky in shock.
"That's... that's the Genesis Qi starry sky phenomenon?!" They finally screamed in shock. They knew that this phenomenon only appeared when the Genesis Qi stars in one's Qi Dwelling reached the crazy number of ten thousand.
Only proud geniuses with very strong foundations could achieve ten thousand Genesis Qi stars by ascending to the ninth layer.
Take Lei Qinghai for example. Although he had entered the ninth layer, his Genesis Qi foundation was merely at the level of nine thousand stars Genesis Qi. Therefore, they could not understand how the Genesis Qi fundamentals of Zhou Yuan's seventh layer Genesis Qi cultivation could reach such a terrifying level.
He was basically a monster!
Compared to the others, Lei Qinghai was undoubtedly the most shocked at this moment, giant waves churning wildly in his heart, as he stared at the Genesis Qi starry sky. In fact, he had even previously concluded that Zhou Yuan had barely used Genesis Qi because it was his weak point.
How could Lei Qinghai have imagined that Zhou Yuan's Genesis Qi foundations had actually passed the ten thousand mark?...
Zhou Yuan should have relied on his strong physical body! Who could have expected that his Genesis Qi foundations would actually be even more terrifying than his physical prowess?!
“How can this be?! His body cultivation is already so formidable, how can his Genesis Qi foundations be so excellent too?” Lei Qinghai roared in. He was considered a genius in the Little Thunder Gate, but the gap between him and Zhou Yuan was too cruel.
However, Zhou Yuan obviously wouldn't care even if he knew what Lei Qinghai was screaming inside. The first one turned slowly and broke his neck. After the previous tests, he could feel that his physical power seemed to have increased substantially. Otherwise, he would not have been able to simply rely on physical strength and very small amounts of Genesis Qi to match Lei Qinghai in battle.
However, Zhou Yuan also understood that although his physical abilities were strong, it would take him a long time to defeat Lei Qinghai in this way, time that Zhou Yuan clearly did not intend to waste on the latter.
Zhou Yuan spread his hands, his skin flickered with jade light, while silver light flashed and surged on his bones. In an instant, his figure appeared in front of the thunder seal like a ghost.
His hands abruptly slammed downwards, golden Genesis Qi surged out to catch the thunder seal. The Genesis Qi and physical power in his body exploded in full force, as his hands slowly closed around the seal.
The space between his hands began to warp and distort, as faint spatial cracks appeared.
Lightning frantically shot out from the thunder seal, but could not completely escape. He could only release eerie creaks as the hands gradually closed around him.
Zhou Yuan's hands finally closed around the seal, causing it to shatter and transform into silver specks of light.
Shock waves spread out from the epicenter, but they were forced by Zhou Yuan's hands.
As such, Lei Qinghai's strongest Genesis Technique was forcibly destroyed by Zhou Yuan's hands...
Zhou Yuan roughly brushed the dust off his hands, before turning his gaze to the pale new Lei Qinghai with a wide smile, "Didn't you want to see how much I was hiding before? Are you satisfied now?"
Lei Qinghai's lips trembled for a moment, but he could not utter a single word. Fear slowly crept into his heart as he looked at Zhou Yuan's indifferent eyes.
The ease with which Zhou Yuan had destroyed Lei Qinghai's most powerful technique was more than enough to tell him the difference between them.
At this very moment, Lei Qinghai's courage had already completely dissipated.
As such, he had no intention of responding, and instead immediately turned his tail and ran amidst the terrified gazes of the various factions, his figure quickly fleeing like an illusory lightning bolt.
Lei Qinghai finally realized that the Cangxuan Sect's core disciple had simply been playing with him before. When the latter became serious, Lei QInghai had no choice but to admit that he was far from the latter's party.
If the battle continued, it would most likely end in his death.
Lei Qinghai's escape caused the various factions to fall into chaos, especially the members of the Little Thunder Gate, who immediately began running, not daring to stay even a second longer.
The attacking factions were defeated instantly, suffering heavy losses to the pursuing Cangxuan Sect.
"How decisive." Zhou Yuan laughed softly as he watched the lightning flash in the sky. However, there was a rather chilling expression in his eyes.
"Thinking about running after starting this?"
"I can only say that you are too naive."
With a wave of his sleeve, a flash of black light abruptly shot out and grew rapidly as it shot through the air, revealing itself to be the Heavenly Yuan Brush. The brush seemed to pierce space itself, like a shooting star in the night sky.
Zhou Yuan's formidable Genesis Qi had been infused into the brush, granting it deadly power.
The already distant Lei Qinghai tried to fight back, but all he could do was let out a miserable scream when the Heavenly Yuan Brush finally arrived…
Zhou Yuan stood in the air with a calm expression as he waved to her.
The Heavenly Yuan Brush quickly returned, dragging a bloody figure behind it. In the end, the brush hung the figure in front of Zhou Yuan.
Lei Qinghai's **** face was deathly pale. “Brother Zhou, I didn't recognize your greatness before, but there should be no need to exterminate us to the last man, right? Although our Little Thunder Gate cannot compare to your Cangxuan Sect, isn't it better to have one less enemy in this place?”
Zhou Yuan smiled. "You didn't care about Cangxuan Sect when you attacked before, so why should we care about your Little Thunder Gate now?"
His eyes were cold as Genesis Qi gathered in his hand, before he pushed it forward, intending to deliver the final blow.
As the deadly force rushed towards him, Lei Qinghai was so terrified that he screamed in a piercing voice.
"Stop! Don't kill me, I will exchange information about a six-color treasure for my life!"
Zhou Yuan's palm stopped inches from Lai Qinghai's body, the residual force expelling the blood on the latter's face. Zhou Yuan 's eyes rippled for a moment, as he looked at Lei Qinghai and slowly asked, "A six-color treasure location?"
