Chapter 759 Resolved
It was completely silent in the originally chaotic camp. Only the crackling of the campfire could be heard.
Both sides looked at the collapsed mountain in the distance in disbelief and shock. They had just witnessed Zhou Yuan send Xu Feng flying with a single kick…
That was an advanced stage Divine Dwelling expert!
Although Xu Feng had only entered the advanced stage of Divine Dwelling two months ago, his fighting power was already incredibly tyrannical. Even Yi Qiushui, who had established an eight-heaven Divine Dwelling, could not resist its power. So how had Zhou Yuan, who was also at the middle stage of Divine Dwelling, unleashed such terrifying power?
The expression on Zhao Yue's beautiful face had frozen. It was only after a long while that any movement was seen in his neck. He seemed to be swallowing saliva.
"How is this possible?" A low voice emerged from his red lips. Although she should have been delighted that Xu Feng was defeated , the scene was too shocking.
Zhao Yue had always treated Zhou Yuan as a liar and in truth, despised him a little. However, his suspicions now seemed extremely ridiculous.
Evidently, it wasn't that Zhou Yuan had lied, but that he lacked judgment...
Thinking of this, Zhao Yue, who had always been quite cold and haughty, felt quite embarrassed.
Compared to Zhao Yue's embarrassment, the expressions of Mu Chao and the group of young men and women changed indeterminately. If Zhao Yue was said to be suspicious of Zhou Yuan previously, then it could be said that they had never had a good opinion of this peasant from another heaven.
Zhou Yuan had been a joke in his eyes for the past few days.
But it was obvious who was the laughingstock now.
Mu Chao gave a hollow laugh, and the smile on his face was incredibly forced. But in order not to appear cowardly in front of Yi Qiushui, he commented: “It seems that talented geniuses from other heavens are not so bad…”
“Zhou Yuan should be one of the top experts of the younger generation in his heaven.”
“But although it is quite good in our eyes, in Hunyuan Heaven, no, even among the Divine Dwelling stage experts of our Tianyuan region, it most likely will not be listed on any list.”
His words and tone gave off a sense of superiority.
Next to him, the proud geniuses of other clans also echoed: “Our Tianyuan region has 38 people on the Hunyuan Heaven Divine Dwelling List. These are the true proud geniuses blessed by the heavens. If Zhou Yuan met any of them, it would be difficult for him to compete.”
Although they seemed to be arguing, they were obviously trying to convince themselves that Zhou Yuan's strength was not great enough to alleviate their embarrassment.
A smile crossed Yi Qiushui's face. “It seems that you have forgotten that Zhou Yuan is currently in the middle stage of Divine Dwelling.”
Their voices suddenly stopped abruptly.
This was because almost all the people on the Hunyuan Heaven Divine Dwelling List were at the advanced stage of Divine Dwelling, while Zhou Yuan was only at the middle stage of Divine Dwelling. He may not have a great chance of beating these Divine Dwelling experts now, but what if he also reaches the advanced stage?
Considering Zhou Yuan's astonishing power, even if Mu Chao and the others were reluctant to admit it, they knew that his strength would undoubtedly skyrocket once he entered the advanced stage of Divine Dwelling.
When that happened, Zhou Yuan would probably be ranked on the Divine Dwelling List.
All of the individuals on the Divine Dwelling List were notable talents. With the exception of Yi Qiushui, it was almost impossible for the younger generation of Xiaoxuan Province to be ranked on the list.
Therefore, a simple sentence from Yi Qiushui made them once again face the cruel truth.
Seeing that the group had fallen silent, Yi Qiushui's red lips curled up slightly. How could she not know what they were thinking? I knew it was hard to admit that others were better.
So what if Zhou Yuan was from another heaven, hadn't prodigies from other heavens appeared before?
While everyone was gradually waking up to the truth, the Wind Demon Bandits looked at the collapsed mountain in the distance before turning towards Zhou Yuan in terror.
Qiu Ji hurriedly said upon seeing the looks in their eyes, “Don't worry, brothers of the Wind Demon Bandits. He may have defeated Xu Feng, but he must have exhausted all his strength to do so!"
However, the bandits fled before his voice faded away.
They rushed towards the collapsed mountain, destroyed the rocks and finally unearthed a body, after which they quickly disappeared into the night.
His movements were extremely decisive.
Evidently, they did not care about Qiu Ji's intentions. As bandits, they were more sensitive to danger than ordinary people. Therefore, they knew that if they stayed any longer, they might not be able to escape.
Qi u Ji watched the scene with an ashen face. The Qiu clan had secretly supported the Wind Demon Bandits for so many years, but he did not expect that it would have no effect on them.
"A lot of garbage!" Qiu Ji gritted his teeth.
Immediately, he turned his head, fixing a fierce gaze on Zhou Yuan. A moment later, he took a deep breath and said, “Friend, your strength is actually not bad, but you must understand that your strength is still considered nothing to my Qiu clan.”
“If you leave now, my Qiu clan can forgive you for the death of the young master.”
“And if you want, you can capture Yi Qiushui. No matter what I gave you, my Qiu clan will double the amount!”
“With the support of my Qiu clan, you can quickly advance to the advanced stage of Divine Dwelling. You will have a great future!"
Zhao Yue's expression changed. Qiu Ji was really clever to think of bringing Zhou Yuan to his side. If Zhou Yuan turned against them, their situation would become desperate.
Zhao Yue turned to Yi Qiushui and couldn't help but exclaimed, "Miss!"
But Yi Qiushui waved his hand disdainfully, silently looking at Zhou Yuan. She didn't try to offer a bigger reward. He knew that Zhou Yuan was not such a stupid person.
As expected, Zhou Yuan couldn't help but laugh. He shook his head. "It's too late now. If I went with you to the Qiu clan, then perhaps my end will be even more miserable than Xu Feng."
Zhou Yuan had experienced a lot over the years. How could he easily believe Qiu Ji 's words ?
Qiu Ji's face trembled, eyes becoming more and more vicious. He glanced at the battlefield and realized that his mission was a complete failure.
He could not stop Yi Qiushui from returning to Xuanzhou City.
“Well, I admit defeat this time, but Zhou Yuan, don't look so pleased. You have angered my Qiu clan, so you will regret it in the future!”
“Do you think that the Yi clan, who can't even protect themselves, would protect you?”
"What a joke!"
"When you fall into my hands, I will make sure you pay for everything you have done today!"
Qiu Ji's tone of voice was full of malice. After leaving these words, he no longer hesitated. With a wave of his hand, he led his people to quickly retreat into the darkness and fled.
Zhou Yuan watched them flee with an indifferent expression, but did not chase them. After all, they had a large number of people on their side, and he could put himself in danger if he chased after them.
The most important task tonight was to resolve the Qiu clan siege.
However, with the retreat of the Wind Demon Bandits and the Qiu clan people, this task could be considered successfully completed.
The halos of the Divine Dwelling behind Zhou Yuan gradually faded away. His body lowered as he scanned the silent crowd. His eyes fell on Yi Qiushui. She looked at him without blinking with her bright eyes.
Zhou Yuan smiled.
"Miss Yi, you didn't lose our deal, right?"
The slender girl stood tall by the remaining campfire. Her bright eyes and pearly white teeth made her look even more beautiful. She smiled softly with her little hand covering her red lips.
As he nodded slightly, a soft voice rang.
