Chapter 754 Zhao Yue
Not long after Zhou Yuan returned to the store, someone lifted the curtain and walked in.
Zhou Yuan looked up and was shocked for a moment. The person who had entered was a woman. His face was handsome but aloof, and his long, well-shaped eyebrows looked like knives, emitting a chilling and ferocious intent.
She was dressed in combat clothing that highlighted her perfect body and long legs.
Zhou Yuan had seen this cold and beautiful woman before. Her name was Zhao Yue, and she was Yi Qiushui's personal bodyguard and someone Yi Qiushui trusted very much.
But at this moment, Yi Qiushui's personal bodyguard revealed a look of contempt upon seeing Zhou Yuan. Before waiting for Zhou Yuan to speak, she tossed him a spatial bag and coldly uttered, “The ancient wood essences you need are all inside.”
Zhou Yuan took the space bag and, without paying attention to his expression, immediately checked the bag. Only when he discovered that the amount of ancient wood essences matched his request did he smile slightly.
"Please thank me Miss Yi," Zhou Yuan said sincerely.
No matter what Yi Qiushui thought of him, she had still given him the ancient wood essence at a time like this. Zhou Yuan was very grateful; This was no small favor.
"There is no need. If you really want to thank him, leave when we reach Xuanzhou City."
"Is this what Miss Yi wants?"
"Does it matter?" Yi Qiushui responded with a cold voice.
Zhou Yuan smiled slightly and did not try to argue with her. After all, he was just a liar in the eyes of others. More importantly, he couldn't prove anything either.
“I don't like owing people. If I feel that I have repaid my debt, I will naturally take the initiative to leave,” Zhou Yuan said calmly.
Zhao Yue snorted coldly. She spoke with a threatening tone in her voice: “I hope he doesn't step out of line. “If you try too hard, like someone from another heaven, you will find it difficult to continue walking in Xiaoxuan Province.”
Zhao Yue and Yi Qiushui were very close, and their relationship was not as simple as master and servant. This was why she was furious that Zhou Yuan had used an almost deceptive way of asking for the ancient wood essence.
His thoughts were similar to most people. Could Zhou Yuan, someone from another heaven, be more outstanding than a pride of similar age from Hunyuan Heaven?
The answer was simply impossible.
This was similar to how the people of Cangxuan Heaven's Shengzhou Continent would never admit that the prides of other continents were better than them.
However, at Zhao Yue's words, Zhou Yuan did not respond. Instead, he closed his eyes as if telling her to go away.
This made Zhao Yue even more upset with Zhou Yuan. She felt that he was outrageously bold to deceive the Yi family.
She snorted coldly, then waved her sleeve and walked away.
After she left, Zhou Yuan opened his eyes again, revealing a look of helplessness. After what happened today, he was afraid that no one in the camp would welcome him anymore.
In fact, in addition to the ancient wood essence, Zhou Yuan also needed many other things, including the Divine Dwelling medicines and some important materials for the evolution of the second stage of the Ancestral Dragon Scriptures. But if he asked Yi Qiushui for these materials, no matter how good his temper was, he would most likely kick him out of the camp.
Zhou Yuan shook his head. It doesn't matter. Since he was not familiar with these people, then perhaps he would find a chance to leave once he reached Xuanzhou City.
But the most important thing at this moment was to completely solve the problem of his injury.
Perhaps others might feel that what Yi Qiushui did was not worth it, but Zhou Yuan felt that it was worth just as much, because he did not lie. As long as he recovered his strength, he was confident that he could escort Yi Qiushui to Xuanzhou City.
“Fortunately, I am the first Chosen of the Cangxuan Sect. My Cangxuan Sect may not be able to compare with the entire Tianyuan region, but it is stronger than a Yi family, right?” Zhou Yuan murmured.
If he was in Cangxuan Heaven, it would have been impossible to hire the first Chosen of the Cangxuan Sect as an escort.
Therefore, Zhou Yuan felt a bit of injustice at the suspicion directed at him. The proposal clearly benefited them greatly, but why did it have to receive all that kind of stare?...
After these childish thoughts continued for some time, Zhou Yuan finally rejected them. He was now in Hunyuan Heaven, not Cangxuan Heaven.
Furthermore, he was no longer the first Chosen of the Cangxuan Sect, but just an ordinary person in an injured state.
But Zhou Yuan didn't feel depressed by this either. When he first came to Cangxuan Sect, he was also just an ordinary disciple, but a few years later, even the influential figures in Cangxuan Heaven had firmly learned his name, even if it was for several different reasons.
Who could be sure that Zhou Yuan's name would not ring in Hunyun Heaven in the future?
Thinking of this, Zhou Yuan smiled. I had thought too much. The most urgent task now was to regain his strength and then find a way to contact his two older brothers.
Only with the help of the power of the Tianyuan Region could he have access to the Ancestral Dragon Lamp.
Of course, the most important thing was to take advantage of every opportunity to improve his strength because he also knew that he would have to return to Cangxuan Heaven one day.
Although he had broken the Cangxuan Saint Seal and blocked Palace Master Sheng Yuan's ambitious thoughts, he also understood that it was only temporary.
Sheng Yuan had entered the false saint stage, and now no one in Cangxuan Heaven could suppress him. Therefore, the Holy Palace would slowly gain the upper hand in the battle of the shattered Cangxuan Saint Seal.
And the day when the Holy Palace succeeded would also be the day of the destruction of the Cangxuan Sect.
Once the Cangxuan Sect was destroyed, the Great Zhou, which was under its shelter, would also be destroyed.
Zhou Yuan's eyes flickered coldly. He didn't have much time. He needed to return to Cangxuan Heaven before Sheng Yuan succeeded. And at that time, he also needed to have the strength to fight Sheng Yuan.
Zhou Yuan took a deep breath and no longer hesitated. His space bag vibrated and a glowing sphere rose from within.
The glowing sphere landed on Zhou Yuan's palm, turning into a fist-sized jade wooden heart. It emitted currents of strong vitality.
This was the essence of ancient wood, which also contained the Yimu Qi necessary for the refinement of the Green Wood Mark.
Zhou Yuan gradually closed his eyes. In the palm of his hand, the ancient wood essence exuded a brilliant glow. Countless green spots of light burst out and finally entered his body through the palm of his hand.
A rich life energy bloomed in his body, and as it entered, the searing pain in his flesh and blood dissipated.
A glow of jade-green light gathered around the surface of Zhou Yuan's body. It was the revival of the Green Wood Mark that had exhausted him.
For the next few days, Zhou Yuan never left his tent. He used all his time to absorb the Yimu Qi to refine the Green Wood Mark.
And with the help of the 100 five-hundred-year-old ancient wood essences, in just a few days, numerous Green Wood Marks were formed. The deep fractures in his flesh, under the divine effect of the Green Wood Marks, finally began to heal rapidly.
The day he made a full recovery was just around the corner.
