Chapter 588: Unscrupulous
Countless gazes watched in alarm and fear as Fan Yao grabbed the blood corpse he had made of Ning Mo and frantically sucked out all of its blood. Genesis Qi undulations surged from the former's body and began to rise at an astonishing speed.
The crazy increase rate caused the nearby Tang Xiaoyan's expression to change drastically.
"You are crazy Fan Yao! I can't believe you would even resort to such measures!" Tang Xiaoyan shouted through clenched teeth.
Fan Yao's actions were difficult to accept no matter where you were. The blood corpse had been made from Ning Hai, after all, and they were once fellow disciples of the same sect. And yet, Fan Yao was now sucking his brother's blood!
A somewhat complicated expression appeared in the eyes of the other main disciple of the Holy Palace, Wang Yuan, when he saw this. Fan Yao was using an extremely vicious secret art from the Holy Blood Hall, in which he consumed fresh blood to temporarily increase his strength. However, this technique was too malicious and would leave harmful side effects. As such, even the disciples of the Sacred Hall of Blood rarely practice it…
Let alone use it on a fellow disciple...
However, he also understood that Fan Yao had no choice at this moment, because Zhou Yuan's strength had surpassed everyone's expectations...
If the Holy Palace lost to the Cangxuan Sect here, they couldn't explain themselves when they met their Chosen One later, especially since the Chosen One of the Holy Blood Hall was Zhan Taiqing!
As a disciple of the Holy Palace, everyone clearly understood the character of the second Chosen One. Don't let her seductive and beautiful appearance fool you, because she was indeed extremely cruel, cruel and ruthless. In fact, even the other Chosen were very distrustful of her.
This was precisely why things would not end well for Fan Yao if he found out that Zhou Yuan had defeated him. Therefore, Fan Yao needed to do everything he could to kill Zhou Yuan and consolidate the reputation of the Holy Blood Hall.
In the sky, the blood corpse quickly withered at a speed that could be seen with the naked eye, and finally turned into dust that drifted away with the wind.
Fan Yao's hair was messily scattered behind him, while his pupils glowed with blood-red light. The blood runes on his body moved like worms, while bloody blisters began to swell beneath his skin, before exploding, causing a splash of blood and a horrible stench.
The current Fan Yao looked like a monster.
However, the Genesis Qi undulations pulsating from his body had reached quite alarming levels. In fact, even the space around him seemed to distort a little.
He slowly raised his head, as his bright pupils locked onto Zhou Yuan. Blood dripped from the corner of his mouth when a chilling voice that could freeze even the air rang out.
"I never imagined you would push me so far..."
Zhou Yuan's expression became serious at this moment. Fan Yao in this state made the former feel a strong sense of danger.
"Zhou Yuan, let's join forces!" Tang Xiaoyan shouted. The blood corpse had now been consumed by Fan Yao, and he was now free to help Zhou Yuan.
However, the Genesis Qi in Fan Yao's body erupted a split second after his voice rang, as he disappeared from the scene.
Zhou Yuan's pupils shrank as he shouted, "Be careful!"
A foreboding feeling also rose within Tang Xiaoyan as he hurriedly retreated.
Just as she was about to back away, Fan Yao's body appeared above her like a ghost, his pupils glowing scarlet red, as a sinister smile emerged from the corners of his lips.
"Tang Xiaoyan, since you want to die, I will grant your wish!"
His hand slammed downwards as the blood-red Genesis Qi that fell from the mountain erupted from his palm with a horrible momentum. As his hand descended, a giant palm print appeared on the surface of the six-colored lake below.
Genesis Qi also rose from Tang Xiaoyan's body as he poured out all his power to create multiple layers of defenses.
However, these defenses were as fragile as paper under Fan Yao's palm, and were easily torn apart in short breaths. Crazy Genesis Qi rushed forward, violently exploding into Tang Xiaoyan's outstretched arms.
Tang Xiaoyan's pretty face paled as she vomited a mouthful of blood. His figure fell miserably in the air, his thin arms somewhat twisted in an unnatural manner.
"Older sister!" Outside the six-colored lake, the disciples of the Hundred Flower Fairy Palace turned pale upon seeing this scene.
An anxious expression filled Luluo's eyes. She was quite close to Tang Xiaoyan, and was naturally worried about the latter's safety.
Fan Yao did not relent after his successful strike, but instead once again launched an attempt to finish off Tang Xiaoyan in the quickest way possible.
His current speed was extremely fast, allowing him to catch up with Tang Xiaoyan in an instant as the terrifying Genesis Qi converged on his palm once again.
A feeling of despair rose in Tang Xiaoyan's heart when she saw this. However, she did not give up, but instead gritted her teeth as a decisive look emerged in her eyes. She was prepared to fight to the death.
However, a figure appeared behind her just as she was about to act. An arm extended out and hooked around his waist, before quickly retreating like a shadow, directly evading Fan Yao's pursuing attack.
Tang Xiaoyan was initially surprised to be grabbed by the waist. Just as Genesis Qi was about to come out, the arm around her waist loosened and he let go of her.
Her head turned sharply and found Zhou Yuan standing next to her.
"Are you OK?" Zhou Yuan looked at her.
Tang Xiaoyan's pale face blushed a little as she shook her head and replied softly, "Thank you."
Zhou Yuan waved his hand. "Don't collide with him directly, he is very powerful now."
Fan Yao was in the air nearby, tilting his head slightly as he looked at the two head disciples and playfully said, “Are you still in the mood to act like a hero and save the damsel in distress even right now?”
His voice was full of ridicule.
However, he soon waved his hand and said lazily, "Never mind, since you're already so into the act, let me give you a scenario suitable for two... how about a pair of lovebirds fleeing for their lives?"
Zhou Yuan's expression was calm as he said, "It's never good to celebrate too soon... I think your current state of power won't last long, right?"
Fan Yao raised his palm as the terrifying blood-red Genesis Qi converged towards him in a rotating mass, as he said indifferently, “Don’t worry, there is plenty of time to finish you off, and even massacre the other disciples of yours.” equipment…"
Fan Yao's gaze swept towards Tang Xiaoyan, "Tang Xiaoyan, do you regret collaborating with the useless Cangxuan Sect now?"
Tang Xiaoyan laughed coldly. "Who dares to cooperate with someone who would even devour his fellow disciple?"
Fan Yao shrugged uncaringly. "The winner is always right."
“However, you have reminded me that I will have to exterminate all the disciples on your teams after finishing you off to safeguard my reputation. "They will all be buried together in this beautiful lake of six colors."
The tumult woven into his words caused terror to rise within anyone who heard them.
Faced with such a brutal Fan Yao, even Tang Xiaoyan paled substantially.
In contrast, Zhou Yuan's expression remained unchanged like water in an ancient well, as he slowly said, "You seem to think that you already won?"
"What else can happen?" A wide smile appeared on Fan Yao's face.
Zhou Yuan said to Tang Xiaoyan, “Leave it to me. There is no need for you to interfere .”
She hesitated a little, but finally nodded. Although he greatly doubted Zhou Yuan's words...
Fan Yao crossed his arms as he playfully looked at Zhou Yuan, seemingly very interested in where the latter found such confidence.
With Fan Yao watching, Zhou Yuan became blurry as he moved, moving away from the six-colored lake amidst countless stunned gazes.
Numerous gasps sounded stealthily. It seemed like Zhou Yuan was... running?
Fan Yao was also taken aback for a moment, before he began to burst into laughter. He looked at Tang Xiaoyan equally stunned and chuckled, “Are you planning to abandon them to run?”
Tang Xiaoyan did not respond, her heart sinking as she watched the rapidly leaving figure.
Fan Yao sighed and said, "Don't worry, I already said that I will make you two lovebirds on the run, how can I let you survive alone?"
His figure disappeared once again, as a blur passed through the sky, quickly chasing after Zhou Yuan.
Fan Yao was extremely fast, and the gap between the two rapidly narrowed at a rate that could be seen with the naked eye.
Anyone could see that it was impossible for Zhou Yuan to escape.
Jin Zhang's figure appeared next to Tang Xiaoyan. The latter looked at him hesitantly, before she asked, "He...what is he doing?"
Evidently, he was still somewhat unable to believe that Zhou Yuan was actually abandoning them to escape on his own.
Jin Zhang was silent for a moment, before replying, "He's not that kind of person."
Tang Xiaoyan nodded weakly in agreement as confusion appeared in her eyes. She also felt that Zhou Yuan was not that person, so what exactly was he doing now?
Every gaze both inside and outside the six-colored lake was currently focused on the two fleeing and chasing figures…
Under their gazes, Zhou Yuan's figure turned several dozen breaths later and landed in the middle of the ancient mountain forest.
His figure descended from the sky, landing on the solid ground.
Fan Yao's figure soon appeared in front of Zhou Yuan and he began to look around when a flash of realization hit him. "So you were finding a good grave for yourself."
“This place is pretty good.”
Zhou Yuan ignored the above and took a deep breath before squatting down while gently placing his two palms on the ground.
Seeing these actions, Fan Yao frowned as a slight sense of uneasiness arose within him.
“Forget it, there's no point in playing with you any longer. I guess I'll kill you now. He started walking forward as he spoke.”
Zhou Yuan lowered his head and looked at the back of his hands. A Saint Rune emitting a mysterious aura slowly emerged from the flesh of his palms.
The earth began to shake weakly at this moment.
Zhou Yuan's eyes narrowed, as a voice rang in his heart.
"Allow me to witness your power..."
"Holy Earth Rune!"
