Chapter 746 Middle Stage of Divine Dwelling
In a strange domain.
The sky was a deep black with no sun or stars.
Ancient trees stood like pillars supporting the sky above an abandoned and neglected land. Numerous crystalline fruits grew on these ancient trees, each one emitting a dazzling glow.
The light illuminated a radius of one hundred miles. In this world, these unique light trees had replaced the sun and moon, filling the domain with a unique vitality.
On the top of a mountain.
Zhou Yuan was sitting atop a rock with his eyes tightly closed, evidently deeply immersed in a state of cultivation. The surrounding Genesis Qi flooded towards him, eventually pouring into his body with every breath he took.
This training lasted a whole day.
At a certain moment, the Genesis Qi around Zhou Yuan suddenly became volatile. Rays of light emerged behind him, slowly forming a halo of Divine Dwelling.
Not long after the first Divine Dwelling halo formed, countless points of light converged beside it, forming for several dozen breaths before merging into a second Divine Dwelling halo!
Two halos of Divine Dwelling!
This meant that Zhou Yuan had entered the middle stage of Divine Dwelling!
As the second one formed, Zhou Yuan's tightly closed eyes slowly opened. His expression remained calm as he cast a glance at the halo behind him. He wasn't very surprised because it was within his expectations.
It had already been a month since he arrived at this domain with Master Cang Yuan. During this period, Zhou Yuan had immersed himself in cultivation whenever he had time because this was the only way he could temporarily suppress the pain caused by Yaoyao's unconscious state.
Over the past month, his progress had been unusually rapid.
Previously, Zhou Yuan had only managed to perfectly polish and connect two heavens in the Divine Dwelling. Over the past two months, he had polished and stitched together two other heavens. With this, four heavens were completely linked, allowing him to break through to the middle stage of Divine Dwelling.
Such progress in cultivation astonished even Zhou Yuan himself, but he quickly realized that it was mainly due to the power that Patriarch Cangxuan had left in his body.
Although the majority of Patriarch Cangxuan's power had slowly dissipated over time, his body had absorbed an infinitesimally small portion.
Such a small amount might be insignificant to an existence like Patriarch Cangxuan, but it was extremely potent to a Divine Dwelling stage practitioner like Zhou Yuan.
This was the reason why Zhou Yuan had made such progress and broke through to the middle stage of Divine Dwelling after a month.
However, his cultivation speed should return to normal when all of Patriarch Cangxuan's power completely faded away.
The two halos of the Divine Dwelling soon dissipated.
His training was over, but Zhou Yuan remained seated on the rock as he silently watched the many giant sun trees.
Something came to his side. Zhou Yuan took a look and found that it was Tuntun.
Tuntun leaned close to his thigh. His usually energetic self from the past was gone, replaced by an eternally weak and lethargic appearance, his eyes filled with melancholy.
Yaoyao's unconscious state was clearly also an extremely big blow to the human-looking Tuntun.
Zhou Yuan reached out and gently stroked Tuntun's soft fur while comforting him: "Don't worry, nothing will happen to Yaoyao."
Tuntun's hot tongue came out of his mouth and licked Zhou Yuan's hand. Likewise, you might feel sadness in your heart.
The man and the beast sat silently on the top of the mountain. Compared to before, there was a less beautiful figure in this picture. It felt like a corner of a perfect painting had been broken.
Zhou Yuan sat there silently for a long time. Only when the bright fruits of sunlight began to slowly dim and turn into icy starlight, did he stand up and begin his descent into the valley below with Tuntun in his arms.
A small stream flowed through the mountain valley.
A house sat next to the steamer, creating a rather peaceful sight.
Cang Yuan was sitting near a bonfire that was burning in front of the house. He beckoned to Zhou Yuan when he saw him.
Zhou Yuan cupped his fists towards Cang Yuan. "Master Cang Yuan."
“Have you ascended to the middle stage of the Divine Dwelling?” Cang Yuan looked at him and smiled.
“The Divine Dwelling you established is quite interesting… I think it is their top level even among the Divine Dwellings of the nine heavens.” A single glance was all it took for Cang Yuan to discern the extraordinary Divine Dwelling on Zhou Yuan's body.
Cang Yuan was silent for a brief moment before asking, “Are you practicing… the Ancestral Dragon Scriptures?”
Zhou Yuan nodded in a somewhat awkward manner. Cang Yuan had left him a grade Genesis Qi cultivation method seven years ago, but he had finally chosen to practice the Ancestral Dragon Scriptures.
Cang Yuan frowned. “That girl... she's so reckless.”
"Didn't he tell you how difficult it is to cultivate the Ancestral Dragon Scriptures?"
Zhou Yuan smiled and nodded. "It was my choice."
It was a decision that he did not regret until today, and on the other hand he was very happy to have made it.
Cang Yuan had left him a grade seven Genesis Qi cultivation method called the Heavenly Yuan Canon, but at this current juncture, he only needed to collect the necessary ingredients to complete the second evolution of the Ancestral Dragon Scripture, upgrading it to world grade. seven. Subduing the Qi of the Heavenly Serpent. Without a doubt, this would be much stronger than the Heavenly Yuan Canon.
In the future, the potential of the Ancestral Dragon Scriptures would also far surpass the Heavenly Yuan Canon.
Cang Yuan nodded slightly and did not speak further on the topic. He could tell that Zhou Yuan was a determined person who would not give up easily.
"Master Cang Yuan..."
Zhou Yuan looked towards the house. He was silent for a moment before saying, "Has there been any progress on the Yaoyao matter?"
This was the question that worried him the most.
Cang Yuan let out a long sigh before nodding and saying, “I have browsed through many ancient texts over the past month and have managed to find a method that should be able to repair your body.”
Zhou Yuan was delighted and Tuntun barked excitedly in his arms.
“But it won't be easy and I will need your help,” Cang Yuan said.
Zhou Yuan stated decisively, “No matter what it is, I will do anything to help Yaoyao wake up!”
Cang Yuan gave him a meaningful look and said, “You and Yaoyao…”
"I just asked you to help me take care of her back then."
Zhou Yuan's expression became uncomfortable. Evidently, Cang Yuan had discovered that the relationship between him and Yaoyao was not that of ordinary friends, but that of man and woman.
Cang Yuan said slowly: “This matter is really not within my expectations… I originally believed that she would never have feelings for another person. Looks like… you’re an amazing brat, huh?”
Cang Yuan showed what appeared to be a smile.
Zhou Yuan could only smile as well, not daring to say anything. After all, Cang Yuan was strictly speaking Yaoyao's elder, and he only intended to place her in his care. Who could have expected their relationship to develop that way? As such, Zhou Yuan felt quite guilty.
“Master Cang Yuan, let’s talk about the method you found…” Zhou Yuan, feeling guilty, tried to change the topic.
Cang Yuan chuckled and did not pressure Zhou Yuan any further. His expression soon became a little more solemn as he looked at Zhou Yuan and slowly said, “You should know about Hunyuan Heaven, right?”
