Chapter 692 Return
It was chaos in the center of Faraway Holy City.
At this moment, countless complicated gazes were on Zhou Yuan who was standing in the air, when Wu Huang's spirit was destroyed, the outcome of the battle between the two most powerful Origin-Alpha stage experts was also determined.
Zhou Yuan could now be called the true first Chosen One of the Shengzhou Continent.
Outside the city, the Cangxuan Sect disciples broke into thunderous cheers. The gazes that were directed towards Zhou Yuan also became increasingly brighter. Today's battle had greatly increased the face of the Cangxuan Sect.
And compared to the wild cheers from the Cangxuan Sect side, the Holy Palace disciples were completely silent.
Even Jiang Taishen and Zhan Taiqing looked extremely unnatural. As they looked at Zhou Yuan's figure, there was an intense look of fear emerging in their eyes.
Even at this moment, they still found it difficult to believe the scene that had happened.
It should be said that Zhou Yuan did not dare to fight them directly in the Mythical Utopia, so he chose to go against Jin Chanzi, who was a little weaker.
And even if Zhou Yuan killed Jin Chanzi in the end, Jiang Taishen and Zhan Taiqing simply saw him as someone they could confront directly. It still wasn't enough to make them feel afraid.
Who would have thought that, in less than two months, Zhou Yuan could become so strong?
Jiang Taishen had fought against Wu Huang before, so he knew his strength. But still, Wu Huang, after playing all his trump cards, was killed by Zhou Yuan. In the end, even his spirit could not escape either.
What did that mean ? It meant that if they faced Zhou Yuan, they would have died much faster.
The man they gave no importance to in the mythical utopia had now far surpassed them.
Jiang Taishen and Zhan Taiqing exchanged a glance, noticing the bitter feelings in each other's eyes. Since the Cangxuan Sect had a person as strong as Zhou Yuan, it could be imagined that their Sacred Palace would be suppressed by them in the future.
"It's payback." Jiang Taishen sighed. Before Zhou Yuan and Wu Huang appeared, he was the strongest among the young generation of Cangxuan Heaven, and he had suppressed the Cangxuan Sect for many years to the point that the Cangxuan Sect disciples could not even raise their heads.
From this moment on, the Sacred Palace had lost its prestige. In the future, Zhou Yuan would suppress the young generation of the Holy Palace.
On the other side of the city wall, Zuoqiu Qingyu, Luluo, Li Chunjun and others were still staring at the scene dumbfounded. It was only after quite a while that they came out of their shock.
The battle between Zhou Yuan and Wu Huang was different from a match between Origin-Alpha stage experts.
Fortunately, it was Zhou Yuan who won in the end.
"He became stronger again." Ning Zhan sighed. Zhou Yuan was many times stronger than he was back then in Mythical Utopia. It was truly unknown how this person cultivated to become so strong,
The others nodded in agreement.
"But, although we have defeated Wu Huang, will Zhou Yuan really return to Cangmang Continent?"
Zuoqiu Qingyu raised his eyebrows, “According to the information I received, the Cangxuan Sect and the Holy Palace have a rule that anyone at the Divine Dwelling stage and above cannot intervene.”
“Zhou Yuan is now at the peak of the Alpha Origin stage and has not entered the Divine Dwelling stage. Most likely, the present him is no match for King Wu."
The others also remained silent. Although Zhou Yuan's strength was amazing, there was a huge gap between the Alpha Origin stage and the Divine Dwelling stage. Even the worst stage of the Divine Dwelling would possess no less than 500,000 Genesis Qi stars.
Such a powerful base of Genesis Qi was enough to destroy any method Zhou Yuan had.
“He has to go back, Great Wu specially chose this moment to attack Great Zhou. Most likely, the Great Zhou would not be able to withstand such an attack. If he does not return, the Great Zhou will be destroyed." Li Chunjun explained.
Luluo pursed her lips, “I sent a letter to the Thousand Beast Empire to ask my father for help, but he said that the conflict between Great Zhou and Great Wu is not that simple. “Now it is a competition between the Cangxuan Sect and the Holy Palace, and others simply do not dare to intervene.”
The others exchanged glances with each other, sighing deeply. Only Zhou Yuan could solve this, so he must go back.
Above the city, Zhou Yuan's slightly closed eyes were gradually opening. The Taiyi Green Wood Mark emitted a life force that quickly healed his injuries.
Feeling the gradual fusion of the two Holy Dragon Qi, his eyes flashed.
A moment later, Zhou Yuan raised his head. The two powerful forces in the void continued to clash for a while, causing heaven and earth to tremble, but both Palace Master Sheng Yuan and Sect Master Qing Yang evidently had no intention of truly fighting. In the end, they both retired.
“Your Cangxuan Sect cultivated a good disciple, but unfortunately that disciple will not last long. Soon, he will follow the path of Wu Huang.” Palace Master Sheng Yuan’s voice echoed through heaven and earth.
"It's unfortunate that a good seedling, which rarely appears in Cangxuan Sect, doesn't last much longer."
Palace Master Sheng Yuan's laughter gradually faded, and the great power floating in the air also escaped into the void.
The people who knew the reason shifted their gazes towards Zhou Yuan, some of them filled with regret. The seedling was indeed very good, and if it could continue to cultivate in the Cangxuan Sect, then the Cangxuan Sect could perhaps gain a top expert at the Heavenly Sun stage or even the Nascent Source stage.
But if he went to the Cangmang Continent to fight against a Divine Dwelling stage expert, then it did not bode well for him.
Zhou Yuan seemed to be unaware of those glances. His expression was calm, without the slightest wave of emotion.
“If you can bear it, you don't have to come back. Cangxuan Sect can find a way to protect your father and mother.” A voice pierced Zhou Yuan's ear, which Zhou Yuan could distinguish as that of Sect Master Qing Yang.
Zhou Yuan was silent for a moment. Sect Master Qing Yang only said that he would protect his father and mother, and not the Great Zhou. By doing so, the Great Zhou would become a sacrifice.
Zhou Yuan took a deep breath, but his expression gradually became determined.
“Thank you Sect Master, but this is a responsibility that I cannot escape. If I withdraw today, the impulse in my heart will also disappear. This will be fatal for my future cultivation.”
"At that time, I will be just like everyone else."
“I am not content with being mediocre. This is a battle of beliefs. Only when I face the edge of the blade will I be able to take a big step forward on the path of the future."
Zhou Yuan whispered to himself. Over the years, he had faced many difficulties, but he gritted his teeth and persevered through it all. This was precisely because of the belief that supported it. But if he chose to give in, then at some point in the future, he would probably lose the confidence to persist.
Sect Master Qing Yang naturally heard his calm voice. Half a second later, a voice rang again: "Since you have made a decision, then leave."
There was relief in his voice. Compared to Zhou Yuan's talent, Sect Master Qing Yang valued his mentality even more.
Zhou Yuan nodded, bowed solemnly to the void, and then turned around to look at Chu Qing, Li Qingchan, and many other Cangxuan Sect disciples, and bowed once again.
"Zhou Yuan wants to thank all the older and younger brothers and sisters who protected me along the way!"
Chu Qing had a complicated expression on her face. Li Qingchang's beautiful eyes fell on the young man in the distance and said in a low voice: "Zhou Yuan, when you come back, the Cangxuan Sect disciples will drink until we are drunk to celebrate."
The next moment, a deafening sound rang out from Faraway Holy City.
"The disciples of Cangxuan Sect wish that elder brother returns victorious!"
The noise shook the city, but also attracted countless complex gazes.
Zhou Yuan felt warmth in his heart as he looked at them. Then he smiled and with a wave of his hand, he turned around without hesitation. He disappeared in an instant and reappeared at the tremendous transfer point in the center of the city.
There was a bright pillar of light that swallowed Zhou Yuan's figure.
As Zhou Yuan's figure disappeared, the roar of the Cangxuan Sect disciples continued to sound above the Faraway Holy City.
"Big Brother Zhou Yuan, we all look forward to your triumphant return!"
