Chapter 738 Counterattacked
'Zhou Yuan' stood in the air, looking at the endless skies with a solemn expression.
"What's wrong patriarch?"
Zhou Yuan's voice rang in his mind. Evidently, Zhou Yuan had sensed the fluctuation in his emotions.
Patriarch Cangxuan was silent for some time before replying, “An extremely terrifying force is attempting to break through the boundary walls of Cangxuan Heaven. If my speculation is correct, they should be the experts of the sacred race.”
Zhou Yuan blurted out worriedly: "Have they come for Yaoyao?"
Patriarch Cangxuan said in a low voice, “Once its seal is broken, the sacred race will be able to detect its power.”
"It must not fall into the hands of the sacred race, otherwise, the countless living beings of Tianyuan World will lose all hope."
"Who exactly is Yaoyao?" Zhou Yuan had no idea that Yaoyao would have such a big impact.
But Patriarch Cangxuan did not respond this time. In an instant, he appeared next to Yaoyao.
Yaoyao's long golden hair fluttered in the wind, an indifferent indifference in her clear and bright eyes. Only when his eyes fell on Zhou Yuan, that cold indifference faded a little.
“Your power is too great. Possessing his body will make him suffer.” Yaoyao frowned.
Patriarch Cangxuan said forcefully: “At a time like this, what if he suffers a little?
Patriarch Cangxuan looked at Yaoyao. He could see faint golden cracks continuously appearing on its fair skin.
You are too reckless. You can't bear such tremendous power right now.
“You haven't really woken up yet.”
"No one knows what kind of consequences you will face for this..."
Golden strands of hair fluttered in front of Yaoyao's eyes. She raised her hand and brushed her hair behind her ears, but she didn't answer him. Instead, he raised his head slightly and looked at the sky.
Sheng Yuan was also floating in the air. A look of bewilderment flashed in his eyes when he saw no movement from Yaoyao and Patriarch Cangxuan, but his heart soon trembled as he turned towards the heavens.
He had felt it too.
"Why are they trying to breach the border wall again?" Palace Master Sheng Yuan asked in confusion.
Outside Cangxuan Heaven was the Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array that made it impossible for sacred race experts to enter. The reason why the sacred race had managed to sneak into Cangxuan Heaven back then to attack Patriarch Cangxuan was because Palace Master Sheng Yuan had secretly helped them. But this time he had not informed the sacred race.
Even the holy race would have to pay a huge price to break into the Chaos Origin Holy Killer Array.
“Could they have sensed Patriarch Cangxuan's spirit fragment? Impossible, Patriarch Cangxuan’s spirit fragment doesn’t have that much appeal.”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan's eyes flashed thoughtfully. After a few seconds, his line of sight changed to Yaoyao.
She had a vague feeling that she was the target of the sacred race.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan couldn't help but laugh, “Cangxuan, it seems that the heavens really want you to die. Even luck is on my side."
Patriarch Cangxuan turned to remind Yaoyao: “This person is a problem. “I will knock him down from the Holy stage first, but you must not do anything.”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan suddenly shot up when he heard this. He clearly planned to avoid any fight until the sacred race forces arrived.
"Cangxuan, although I am no match for the two of you together, that doesn't mean you can stop me from escaping." Palace Master Sheng Yuan sneered.
Patriarch Cangxuan calmly watched Palace Master Sheng Yuan flee as he asked, “Sheng Yuan, did you correctly absorb my holy heart?”
Palace Master Sheng Yuan narrowed his eyes, "What do you mean?"
"I just want to tell you that it is not safe to rely on other people's things to reach the Saint stage."
Patriarch Cangxuan clasped his hands. "Heart of Saint, spread!"
As his voice rang out, Palace Master Sheng Yuan was horrified as he saw countless specks of golden light floating uncontrollably from his body.
Each golden light particle contained unlimited power. It was Santo's heart that he had absorbed before!
Palace Master Sheng Yuan tried to prevent the specks of golden light from escaping, but his efforts were in vain. He quickly realized that these specks of golden light had a will of their own.
A will that came from Patriarch Cangxuan.
Numerous golden specks of light rose from Palace Master Sheng Yuan's body before dissipating. The majestic power contained within them caused the nearby Genesis Qi to become incredibly concentrated.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan's face darkened.
The golden Saint Flame Lotus above his head swayed and finally shattered, turning into a small wisp.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan's cultivation instantly returned to the false saint stage.
An uproar gripped the experts of the many sects in the area. No one had thought that Patriarch Cangxuan could beat Palace Master Sheng Yuan back to his original cultivation state.
However, what baffled everyone even more was that Patriarch Cangxuan did not follow up with any attacks.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan looked at Patriarch Cangxuan gloomily. He had not escaped out of fear after returning to the false saint stage because he could sense that Patriarch Cangxuan was trying to save as much power as possible.
"What do you care about?" Palace Master Sheng Yuan sneered.
He cast a glance at Yaoyao as his lips curled into an unfathomable smile, “Are you worried about attracting the sacred race here if you use too much power?”
Patriarch Cangxuan's face was indifferent, but his eyes became as cold as a knife.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan was right. Although the holy race had detected Yaoyao's presence, it was not easy to break through the Chaos Origin Holy Killer Array. Therefore, Patriarch Cangxuan did not want to use his power in the hope that the sacred race would not discover this battlefield.
After all, Cangxuan Heaven was extremely vast and it was difficult for even the top saint race experts to fully probe the area with the Chaos Origin Sacred Killer Array covering it.
Even now, he could not use his full power to deal with Palace Master Sheng Yuan, because he was merely a Spirit fragment and he needed to conserve as much strength as possible to deal with what would happen next.
After all, he couldn't let Yaoyao break the seal completely.
Palace Master Sheng Yuan smiled, “Cangxuan, I just wanted to use the sacred race and I haven't really sided with them. If you give me the Cangxuan Saint Seal, I will not intervene in the subsequent events.”
Patriarch Cangxuan’s lips curled into a mocking smile, “Sheng Yuan, your knees already bent once, so don’t try to act tough in front of me. "You don't deserve to have the Cangxuan Saint Seal."
Sheng Yuan lowered his gaze. "It seems that you don't agree?"
He shook his head.
"Cangxuan, you made me do this..."
He stretched out his palm, revealing a vertical golden eye. In the next moment, he clenched his hand and crushed the eye.
As the golden eye shattered, a wave of energy imperceptible to ordinary people shot into the sky.
Patriarch Cangxuan's eyes widened in shock and anger at the sight. He did not think that Palace Master Sheng Yuan would still be in possession of a golden sacred eye that could notify the sacred race!
"Sheng Yuan, you deserve to die!"
The enraged Cangxuan Patriarch no longer cared about conserving his strength as a majestic power pulsed outwards.
However, just as he was about to attack, his heart was pounding and he looked up with a stormy face.
In the endless skies above, the sky seemed to gradually tear apart as a giant golden vertical eye looked through with cold and icy haughtiness, taking in everything that was happening in the area.
