Chapter 583: Fan Yao's Cruelty
A giant whirlpool began to form in the center of the six-colored lake, as a dazzling and dazzling ancient tree slowly rose from within. Its roots seemed to float in water, absorbing the Genesis Qi within to grow.
Traces of black Genesis Qi were slowly receding from the surface of the tree, probably belonging to the Three-Headed Ghostly Python from before.
The Three-Headed Ghostly Python had dragged the tree into the lake to hide it, but after the snake was killed, the Genesis Qi binding the tree dissipated, allowing it to resurface once again.
Of course, these were just minor and unimportant details. Every gaze was currently focused on the branches of the ancient trees, where many fruits of different colors were hanging.
These fruits seemed to have been made of precious gems and shone in a crystalline manner. Among them, some emitted three or four colored glows, creating an exceptionally mystical sight.
All eyes in the surroundings were glued to these fruits, while countless individuals secretly swallowed them, unable to hide the desire on their faces.
They had discovered that these fruits naturally formed Divine Establishment Treasures.
Zhou Yuan, Fan Yao, Tang Xiaoyan, and the other core disciples were also stunned upon seeing this tree. Its existence had clearly exceeded his expectations, especially the highly coveted fruit like Divine Treasures that hung from its branches.
The fruits that were emitting four-colored light were obviously four-colored Divine Establishment Treasures.
However, the most surprising thing was the four fist-sized fruits at the top of the tree. Five different colors flowed on the surface of these four fruits.
Five-color divine treasures!
Facing these Divine Treasures, burning desire surged even in the eyes of Zhou Yuan and the other core disciples.
However, they also felt a little regretful that there were no six-colored fruits on the tree. In other words, there was no six-color divine treasure in the six-color lake.
Was it because too many Divine Establishment Treasures had been formed, leaving insufficient power to create one at the six-color level?
These feelings of regret only lasted a few seconds in the hearts of Zhou Yuan and the others, before they were quickly pushed away. The five-color divine establishment treasure and the mythical Genesis essence in the lake should be enough to push his divine establishment treasures infinitely close to the six-color stage.
As Zhou Yuan and the rest looked at the fruits on the tree eagerly, several wind sounds could be heard. Numerous figures soon arrived from all directions, landing in the vicinity of the six-colored lake.
Some of the other factions had finally managed to rush over.
They were immediately drawn to the ancient tree in the center of the lake the moment they arrived, their breathing becoming heavier as greed filled their eyes.
Some of them couldn't help but rush forward, but were soon thrown back by the repulsive force as they approached the lake.
The disciples of the three sects began to spread out at this moment, as they turned their attention towards the newcomers. The pressure they created intimidated the various factions, making them think twice before acting.
Not a single faction in Cangxuan Heaven has dared to challenge three of the overlord sects together after all.
Zhou Yuan and the other core disciples simply cast an indifferent glance at the factions that rushed over, before paying them no further attention. Instead, they began to observe each other cautiously.
Their temporary alliance from before had already disappeared a long time ago.
Zhou Yuan was the first to break the silence, as he slowly said, “According to what we agreed upon earlier, my Cangxuan Sect should take forty percent. I think the Hundred Flower Fairy Palace and the Holy Palace have already recognized it before, right?”
Tang Xiaoyan hesitated slightly. Just as he was about to speak, Fan Yao laughed softly and said, “Head disciple Zhou Yuan, I think you may have misunderstood a little. "Even if the previous agreement is still in effect, it will not include the tree."
Anyone could see that this tree was the true treasure of the six-colored lake, and the essence of the mythical utopia in the lake had now become secondary.
Therefore, there was absolutely no way Fan Yao would allow Zhou Yuan a forty percent share of the tree.
"Are you guys going back on your word?" Jin Zhang growled. Although he had expected this, such shamelessness from Fan Yao still caused a surge of anger within him.
Fan Yao glanced at the former, his eyes clearly filled with contempt.
Zhou Yuan looked at Fan Yao indifferently without speaking. The atmosphere immediately became somewhat suffocating for a while, as hidden under currents flowed between them.
A long time later, Zhou Yuan finally said, “How does Head Disciple Fan Yao suggest we separate him then?”
Fan Yao laughed softly and said, “Head Disciple Zhou Yuan, since we have already allowed you to take advantage of us to divide the Six-Colored Lake, I feel like I should give in a little for the tree. How about this… my Sacred Palace will take fifty percent of the tree, while the Hundred Flower Fairy Palace and the Cangxuan Sect will discuss how you guys will divide the remaining fifty.”
He paused for a moment, before smiling and saying, “Of course, I am a little more inclined towards the Hundred Flower Fairy Palace, and the Cangxuan Sect should show some grace, right? I suggest women get thirty percent.”
"Why not suggest that the Holy Palace distribute its fifty percent instead?" Jin Zhang smiled angrily.
Fan Yao replied unhurriedly, “Isn't that useless? We have already agreed to the six-colored lake, you can't expect us to also give in for the tree, right? ”
He revealed his mysterious white teeth as he smiled. "Or do you think my Holy Palace is an easy target?"
Zhou Yuan restrained the angry Jin Zhang as he smiled and said, “Can I assume that we cannot reach an agreement?”
Fan Yao sighed when he heard this and looked towards Tang Xiaoyan. "Junior Sister Xiaoyan, it seems that the Cangxuan Sect's appetite is a bit big."
Tang Xiaoyan smiled slightly, but said nothing. She could already detect changes in the atmosphere. Fan Yao seemed to be trying to get them on the same side.
However, she didn't answer him directly, because she honestly didn't trust him.
Fan Yao's gaze flickered at his evasion of the topic. His hands lowered to his side as a voice wrapped in Genesis Qi was stealthily transmitted to Tang Xiaoyan and Zhao Ru. “Junior Sister Xiaoyan, if you guys cooperate with us, we will split the lake and the tree fifty-fifty.”
He had directly rejected his offer, without bothering to hide anything.
Tang Xiaoyan's pupils widened slightly, as she sent a covert glance in the direction of Zhou Yuan and Jin Zhang.
In contrast, Zhao Ru licked her lips, clearly somewhat tempted as she cast a glance at Tang Xiaoyan.
However, Tang Xiaoyan shook her head slightly. “Chief disciple Fan Yao, the three of us worked together to secure this location, I think it would be best to properly discuss things…”
Fan Yao's eyes narrowed slightly. He seemed to ponder for a moment, before his somewhat regretful voice conveyed again, “Since Junior Sister Xiaoyan thinks highly of you, I will try to negotiate again. However, you will have to make some sacrifices."
Tang Xiaoyan's expression remained unchanged, while a sliver of anxiety and unwillingness fluttered across Zhao Ru's eyes.
"What are you guys doing?!" Jin Zhang suddenly shouted at this moment, a cautious look in his eyes as he looked at Fan Yao, Tang Xiaoyan, and the other two. The former had evidently already realized that they were secretly communicating.
Fan Yao laughed softly as he approached Tang Xiaoyan and Zhao Ru. "What do you think?"
Jin Zhang's suspicious gaze swept over Tang Xiaoyan, already suspecting that they might have reached a certain agreement to deal with Cangxuan Sect.
Tang Xiaoyan also realized this and tried to explain.
However, the instant he opened his mouth, Genesis Qi suddenly surged from Fan Yao's body as a sinisterly chilling light emerged in his eyes.
His five fingers clenched tightly as a punch was launched, as the Genesis Qi in his body rushed out without reservation and grabbed onto his fist.
His strike was as fast as galloping thunder.
The punch flew viciously towards the back of the nearest Zhao Ru.
Zhao Ru turned his head in shock when he felt the approaching force, only for disbelief and horror filled his eyes upon seeing Fan Yao's sinister and twisted face.
She never imagined that Fan Yao would attack her!
Fan Yao's sneak attack had been too decisive, and he did not give Zhao Ru time to react. The terrifying blow fell on his body, as a torrent of Genesis Qi exploded from his back.
A mouthful of fresh blood was vomited from Zhao Ru's mouth, as his body writhed in agony. In the end, she fell from the sky and crashed into the six-colored lake below.
Giant waves surged from the surface of the lake.
Time seemed to stop at this moment.
Even Zhou Yuan was visibly surprised. He also had not expected that Fan Yao would suddenly attack the Hundred Flowers Fairy Palace…
The cruelty and audacity of this guy was truly alarming.
Tang Xiaoyan came back to her senses at this moment as her pretty face turned pale. His gentle demeanor disappeared instantly, replaced by a mountain of ice like coldness as he stared daggers at Fan Yao.
Fan Yao was expressionless as he gently rubbed his fist. He met Tang Xiaoyan's cold gaze head-on and smiled.
“Tang Xiaoyan, since your Hundred Flower Fairy Palace spits out the respect I have given it, and refuses to cooperate with us…”
His icy gaze turned towards Zhou Yuan.
"You will accompany them to hell."
