Chapter 745 Sealed Yaoyao
Zhou Yuan hugged Yaoyao's body, feeling the coldness spreading from him. His complexion instantly turned deathly white, and his voice began to tremble as panic filled his eyes.
"Master Cang Yuan!"
Cang Yuan's figure had already flashed before his voice could fade away. Yaoyao's body slowly floated in the air, her fair skin filled with cracks.
These cracks covered her entire body, making Yaoyao look like a fractured porcelain doll. It was a sight that would make anyone feel deep pain inside.
With a serious expression, Cang Yuan sighed and said, “It still ended like this.”
Zhou Yuan hurriedly asked, "What happened to him?"
Cang Yuan frowned as he explained, “She opened the seal, releasing a tremendous amount of power that her body could not withstand. Her body is now on the verge of breaking, and the power within her has sealed her consciousness, putting her into a deep sleep to preserve her life.”
"This is a big problem".
“If it were someone else, there would naturally be numerous ways to rebuild the body if it is destroyed, but if Yaoyao loses this body, she would have no chance to rebuild it.”
“Moreover, Yaoyao's injuries are too serious. Even falling into a deep sleep can only delay the inevitable destruction of your body. “Once the body reaches its limit, it will still shatter.”
Zhou Yuan's expression changed involuntarily. He never imagined that the problem would be so serious for Yaoyao.
A beam of light shot out and landed on Yaoyao's body. It was Tuntun.
He could also sense Yaoyao's condition, and let out a sad bark in response. Soon after, he looked towards Zhou Yuan and suddenly spit out a jade scroll.
Zhou Yuan took the scroll and scanned it with his Spirit. He discovered that it contained several methods to evolve Silver Shadow, which surprised him. This was probably left by Yaoyao.
Zhou Yuan tightly gripped the jade scroll as feelings of guilt rose in his heart.
Yaoyao had done too much for him, while ultimately failing to protect her. In fact, she had even been forced to undo the seal for him in the end.
He knew that with Yaoyao's strength, it would have been extremely easy to escape if she was no match for her enemies. But because of his existence, Yaoyao had no intention of running away alone.
At this moment, Zhou Yuan really hated how weak he was.
If it weren't for her lack of strength, Yaoyao would have had no reason to act!
He had been so proud of his cultivation over the years and had even felt somewhat pleased after finally defeating Wu Huang and King Wu. In a single day, he realized how ridiculous he had been.
Before the truly strong, he was nothing more than an ant that anyone could trample.
"Master Cang Yuan, please, I beg you, save Yaoyao." Zhou Yuan's hoarse voice trembled. It was akin to a drowning man desperately clinging to anything he could.
Cang Yuan looked at Zhou Yuan. The latter was very stunned and lost.
Although this was only Cang Yuan's second time meeting Zhou Yuan, he understood this young man's character. Even being unable to find his eight meridian channels all those years ago had not put him in such a state. From this, one could see how great Yaoyao's injuries were to him.
However, even Cang Yuan found Yaoyao's situation extremely problematic.
There were many methods of repairing the body in this world, but most of them were ineffective in Yaoyao. It was too extraordinary and naturally could not be evaluated by ordinary methods.
"Don't worry, I will naturally do everything I can to help Yaoyao recover." Cang Yuan was silent for a moment before waving his sleeve. A crystal coffin that gave off an extremely cold aura appeared before him.
Yaoyao's body slowly floated in the air and gently landed on the glass coffin under Zhou Yuan's unfocused gaze.
Tuntun jumped onto the glass coffin, his sharp claws continuously scratching the transparent walls of the coffin. Chunks of ice flew as Tuntun let out an anxious and sad sound.
Cang Yuan sighed but did not try to stop him. Tuntun and Yaoyao had lived together for many years and there was a very strong bond between them. As such, this scene was naturally very difficult for Tuntun to accept.
Cang Yuan allowed Tuntun to express his feelings for the moment as he raised his head and looked towards the distant edge of the world. The crack was still present, and a giant, icy golden eye could be seen within it. The sacred race experts had evidently sensed his presence.
“Zhou Yuan, I will leave Cangxuan Heaven with Yaoyao. Otherwise, the top experts of the sacred race will surely try everything possible to descend to this heaven.”
Cang Yuan looked at Zhou Yuan silently for a moment before continuing, “It will also be extremely dangerous for you to stay here, so come with me. Besides, I probably need your help with Yaoyao."
Zhou Yuan immediately nodded without hesitation.
He was not worried about his own safety, but if it was to help Yaoyao recover, he would reject any request made of him.
Zhou Yuan took a deep breath, suppressing the pain in his heart as he forced a smile and said, “Master Cang Yuan, I will settle my matters first.”
Cang Yuan nodded.
Zhou Yuan turned around and approached Sect Master Qing Yang and the others.
Seeing his approach, complicated expressions emerged in the eyes of Sect Master Qing Yang, Hongya Peak Master, Elder Bai Mei, and Ling Jun Peak Master. After all, Zhou Yuan had played an extremely important role in the today's battle
Let alone how Patriarch Cangxuan had used his body, Yaoyao and the mysterious old man in black seemed to have special relations with Zhou Yuan.
To think that Zhou Yuan was merely a Divine Dwelling stage practitioner.
Normally speaking, someone with such strength had no place in such a shocking battle like this that affected the entire Cangxuan Heaven. And yet, Zhou Yuan had participated and even played an unspeakable role.
Therefore, they could no longer see him as an ordinary disciple.
"Zhou Yuan, if it weren't for you, today's battle would have been a disaster for our Cangxuan Sect." Sect Master Qing Yang sighed heavily.
"The sect master thinks too much of me." Zhou Yuan smiled bitterly. "Sect Master, I will leave Cangxuan Heaven for some time, I hope Cangxuan Sect can take care of my father and mother."
He had ruined Sheng Yuan's plans, creating an irreconcilable grudge between him and the Sacred Palace. I wasn't afraid of them. His only concern was that the Holy Palace would take revenge on his parents.
The Great Zhou Empire was, after all, too small compared to the enormous entity that was the Sacred Palace.
Sect Master Qing Yang solemnly replied, “Don't worry, you are still a disciple of the Cangxuan Sect, and if it weren't for your act of spreading the Cangxuan Saint Seal, Sheng Yuan would probably have obtained it. “You have done a great favor to the Cangxuan Sect.”
“After you leave, I will send an expert to protect the Great Zhou Empire, and I will personally take action if a situation arises. “As long as the Cangxuan Sect is still standing, no one will be able to hurt your parents.”
Zhou Yuan's expression relaxed a little. Sect Master Qing Yang had made him a very serious promise. With Sect Master Qing Yang's protection, anyone would have to think three times before trying to do anything to their parents.
As for the Holy Palace, even if Sheng Yuan hated Zhou Yuan to the core, he was currently seriously injured and would most likely focus on searching for the Cangxuan Saint Seal fragments when he recovered.
Over the next few years, a storm of blood would surely swallow the Cangxuan sky because of these Saint Seal fragments. Even the six overlord sects would be drawn in and no one would be able to stop it.
However, it was precisely this chaos that would make it very difficult for the Sacred Palace to concentrate on dealing with the Cangxuan Sect. As long as the Cangxuan Sect remained stable, there would naturally be no one who dared to touch their parents.
He didn't know when he would return this time.
However, he believed that when he returned to Cangxuan Heaven, he would no longer be as weak as he was today. When that time came, he would properly resolve all his grudges.
Endless frost stirred in Zhou Yuan's eyes as he looked towards the direction Sheng Yuan had escaped.
Sheng Yuan and the sacred race were the biggest culprits for Yaoyao's injuries. Although he currently did not possess the qualifications to pay off these debts, when he gained enough strength in the future, he would make sure to pay them off in full.
Zhou Yuan bowed deeply to Sect Master Qing Yang.
“Thank you sect master!”
"I will leave my parents in your hands!"
When his voice rang out, he looked towards Old Xuan and bowed solemnly to him. He then turned around without hesitation and returned to Cang Yuan's side.
The various experts who were still present were currently focusing on them.
Cang Yuan ignored these gazes as he waved his sleeve. The space in front of him slowly opened, creating a dark spatial passage that could lead anywhere.
Cang Yuan lifted the crystal coffin and entered the spatial passage.
Zhou Yuan followed him. He turned around to take one last look at Cangxuan Heaven before quickly turning around and entering the spatial passage.
The spatial passage swirled as it devoured their figures.
As they watched Cang Yuan leave, the many experts heaved a sigh of relief.
Cang Yuan was too powerful and resembled a giant Dragon. If he chose to stay, it would change the entire landscape of Cangxuan Heaven.
Sect Master Qing Yang stared at the place where Zhou Yuan had disappeared. A long time later, he slowly said, “I have a feeling that none of us will be able to look down on him when he returns to Cangxuan Heaven.”
"Hehe, I'm very curious to know how much he will have grown when he returns..."
After speaking, he shifted his gaze towards the land devastated by the previous battle. He let out a long, drawn out sigh.
The astonishing battle that decided the future of Cangxuan Heaven finally ended.
However, Sect Master Qing Yang knew that it was not over. Due to the scattered fragments of the Cangxuan Saint Seal, Cangxuan Heaven would likely welcome a period of unprecedented chaos.
This was not bad news for the Cangxuan Sect and the other Overlord sects. At the very least, Sheng Yuan's ambitions had been put on hold for the moment.
Before this, no one would have imagined that this great chaotic battle would begin and end at the hands of a young Divine Dwelling stage practitioner.
The news of today's battle would definitely spread, and Zhou Yuan's name would soon be known to everyone in Cangxuan Heaven.
