Chapter 778 Thigh
Zhou Yuan remained calm as he listened to Qiu Long's words. His hand tightened around Qiu Ling's throat as the Genesis Qi circulating within his body accelerated. He would take Qiu Ling as a hostage and flee the moment Yi Qianji showed any signs of backing down.
This was because he could not guarantee that the Yi clan would protect him under the pressure of the Heavenly Spirit Sect.
As numerous thoughts ran through Zhou Yuan's mind, a cold voice filled with anger rang out before Yi Qianji could respond. “Patriarch Qiu Long, it is you who should start reflecting before it is too late!”
Zhou Yuan turned around to see Yi Qiushui glaring at Qiu Long as he continued without any intention of backing down, “The rules of the Prefecture Lord battle were established by Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan. What he is doing now completely ignores their rules.”
“Who gave you the courage to do it? Is it hall master Gu Yan?”
Qiu Long's expression changed. He would never dare to admit the crime of ignoring the rules decided by Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan. In fact, even Hall Master Gu Yan wouldn't dare to do it if he were here.
He didn't expect the gentle Yi Qiushui to be so cruel with her words.
“Don't put that hat on me. I did not ignore the rules of the Prefecture Lord's battle. It's just that the boy crippled Mo Yuan's arm, and I want him to explain to Hall Master Gu Yan." Qiu Long's eyes flashed with anger.
Yi Qiushui said coldly: “No need, you can find my grandfather if you need any explanation.”
"If my grandfather is not enough, I will report this matter to Lady Chi Jing for her to decide."
Qiu Long froze for a moment as his face paled. He didn't expect Yi Qiushui to be so adamant and not even give face to Hall Master Gu Yan because of an unknown boy.
No other clan head would make such a clear position.
After all, it won't be a simple matter if they offended the Heavenly Spirit Sect in the Tianyuan Region, even if Yi Qiushui's grandfather held a position on the Committee of Elders...
The countless boos and whistles in Xuanzhou City grew louder and louder. Every glance was filled with contempt as they looked towards Qiu Long. It was clear that Qiu Long's actions had caused the Qiu clan to lose a lot of face today.
You could say this is a total loss.
Qiu Long had no choice but to swallow his anger. In the end, he coldly looked at Zhou Yuan and shouted, "Hurry up and let Qiu Ling go!"
He was unwilling to let Zhou Yuan go, but he also knew that he could do nothing if the Yi clan insisted on protecting Zhou Yuan.
Yi Qiushui looked towards Zhou Yuan and said gently, “Don’t worry, if he doesn’t know what is good for him, my Yi clan will not let this matter rest.”
He knew that Zhou Yuan was still protected against them. He was in an unknown place with unknown people, it was natural to feel insecure after offending a clan with a Heavenly Sun stage expert.
Zhou Yuan looked at Yi Qiushui and pondered for a moment before he finally released Qiu Ling. Qiu Ling looked at Zhou Yuan with a furious expression as if she wished she could swallow him whole.
Zhou Yuan ignored him and commented with a calm smile, “Patriarch Qiu Long is truly impressive. If there is a chance, I will pay a visit to the Qiu clan for advice in the future.”
Given the current situation, there was no longer any way to avoid a grudge with the Qiu clan. As such, it was impossible to improve their relationship no matter how he behaved.
Of course, given Zhou Yuan's personality, it was impossible for him to become nice to them even if they wanted peace later. If Zhou Yuan had a chance in the future, he would definitely take revenge.
Therefore, he didn't mind saying those words to make the Qiu clan feel even more uncomfortable.
“You have a sharp tongue, but don't celebrate too soon. You have crippled one of Mo Yuan’s arms, and his master will certainly not let you escape,” Qiu Long warned.
“Wow, you are still too inexperienced. “You don’t know the consequences of offending the Heavenly Spirit Sect in the Tianyuan Region.”
"I'm sorry you won't have the chance to visit us in the future."
Zhou Yuan shrugged. "I don't need the Qiu clan head to worry about me."
But there was a sudden sense of apprehension in his heart. It seemed like he needed to hurry up and hold on to his older sister Chi Jing's thigh. After all, he was currently alone and it was impossible for him to face a colossal monster like the Heavenly Spirit Sect.
Qiu Long snorted coldly. The mocking glances around him made him ashamed to stay any longer. With the wave of his hand, a dozen figures rushed towards where Mo Yuan was buried, dug him up, and quickly left.
Qiu Long also left with the Qiu clansmen.
Cheers erupted in the city as countless people cast excited glances towards Zhou Yuan. Strength would always be recognized regardless of place.
Furthermore, Zhou Yuan, an intermediate Divine Dwelling expert, had defeated Mo Yuan, who was a rank on the Divine Dwelling List.
One could easily imagine the commotion this matter would cause once it spread. Zhou Yuan would probably become quite famous in the Tianyuan region…
Figures began to rush out around the stone platform and various buildings, and finally arrived before Yi Qianji and the others to offer their congratulations.
These were the leaders of the many factions in Xiaoxuan Prefecture who had been watching on the fence earlier because the outcome between the Yi and Qiu clans was unclear. Since the Yi clan had won and would take over Xiaoxuan Prefecture in the future, they naturally had to come forward to express their support.
Although Yi Qianji was not happy with these people going wherever the wind blew, he did not show his displeasure.
The surging Genesis Qi around Zhou Yuan gradually faded away. Yi Qiushui walked closer, studying her naked upper body as she teased, “Your figure is not bad.”
Zhou Yuan forced himself to laugh and quickly put on some clothes.
“Zhou Yuan, thank you,” Yi Qiushui said sincerely as her beautiful eyes looked at Zhou Yuan.
He knew that, if Zhou Yuan had not turned the tables, his Yi clan would have probably been swept by Mo Yuan in the Prefecture Lord battle, and they would eventually be forced to give up the position of Prefecture Lord.
"I just did what I was paid to do." Zhou Yuan chuckled.
"So what do you think? Although I'm expensive, the price was worth it, right?"
If the young men and women of the Yi clan heard those words before today's events, they would most likely have mocked and ridiculed him. But all of them were currently smiling, and even Liu Ming was pursing his lips.
Their gazes were filled with curiosity and admiration as they looked towards him.
Yi Qiushui smiled. Shortly after, he declared in a serious voice, “It's definitely worth it. One hundred medicines from the Divine Dwelling cannot be compared to the position of the Prefecture Lord.”
"How about you consider taking care of me long term?" Zhou Yuan asked.
Yi Qiushui was shocked for a moment before panicking. What did Zhou Yuan mean? Although Yi Qiushui had countless admirers over the years, it was the first time someone had spoken to him that way. Was this some kind of confession?
“As long as you provide enough Divine Dwelling medicines for my training,” Zhou Yuan hastily added. He currently needed a large amount of medicines for the Divine Dwelling. Even the hundred high-grade Divine Dwelling medicines he was going to receive were not going to last long.
He could sense that an enormous amount of cultivation resources would be required to ascend to the advanced stage of Divine Dwelling. It was easy for other people to polish their few Divine Dwellings, but their nine mutated Divine Dwellings were terrible resource drainers.
Before he could hug Senior Sister Chi Jing's thighs, he felt that he shouldn't let go of Yi Qiushui's long legs.
As those thoughts flashed through his head, he couldn't help but look at Yi Qiushui's legs, which were indeed quite long and slender.
Yi Qiushui gritted his teeth as he looked at Zhou Yuan. “You have defeated Mo Yuan and your value is not the same as before. “I can’t afford to take care of you long term.”
“Also, I should congratulate you. From today onwards, you will become quite famous in the Tianyuan region.”
Zhou Yuan let out a melancholy sigh. He didn't care if he was famous or not; I would rather have more medicines for the Divine Dwelling. This girl had become more cunning and was no longer easily fooled.
It seems like he had no choice but to find his older sister now.
