Chapter 779 Gu Xi
In the following days, what happened during the battle of the Prefecture Lord of Xiaoxuan Prefecture spread beyond the prefecture at an astonishing speed and caused a constant uproar.
Of course, if it were just an ordinary Prefectural Lord battle, it wouldn't have attracted so much attention. After all, there were nine hundred prefectures in the Tianyuan region, and Xiaoxuan Prefecture was not particularly special among them.
But no one would have thought that the Xiaoxuan Prefecture Prefecture Lord battle would involve Mo Yuan, a celestial pride who was ranked on the Hunyuan Heaven Divine Dwelling List.
And the key point was that… Mo Yuan lost!
He lost to a strange young man in the middle stage of the Divine Dwelling!
In the Tianyuan Region, there were countless Divine Dwelling experts, but only thirty-eight of them could be ranked on the Divine Dwelling List. Although Mo Yuan was ranked near the bottom, no one dared to underestimate his strength.
Given Mo Yuan's potential, he was sure that he would reach the Heavenly Sun stage in the future, and those at the Heavenly Sun stage could be considered the real pillars of the Tianyuan Region.
In the future, if Mo Yuan had enough opportunities, he could even advance to the Nascent Source stage.
Cultivators of the Nascent Source stage, whether in the Tianyuan region or the entire Hunyuan Heaven, could be considered the top experts who could not be ignored.
And it was precisely because Mo Yuan was quite famous in the Tianyuan region that this matter caused such a significant uproar.
Therefore, after countless inquiries, information about the young man who defeated Mo Yuan also spread.
Zhou Yuan, middle stage of Divine Dwelling, background unknown.
The unknown name announced the birth of a dark horse in the Divine Dwelling stage. The various factions in the Tianyuan Region were not surprised by this, because the Tianyuan Region was too vast. There were nine hundred prefectures, and no one knew how many heavenly prides were hidden on earth. Those who had not made themselves known were not necessarily weaker than the ranks of the Divine Dwelling List.
The appearance of similar dark horses, although uncommon, still happened from time to time.
Most of these dark horses were full of arrogance and wanted to amaze the world with a single brilliant feat. Therefore, dark horses often emerged in important events...
Of course, no matter how many hidden dark horses there were, at the very least, Zhou Yuan's name had spread throughout the Tianyuan region this time.
Zhou Yuan's fame was achieved by stepping on Mo Yuan, which some people secretly gloated about. This was not directed at Zhou Yuan but at the Heavenly Spirit Sect.
After all, the Heavenly Spirit Sect was powerful and influential, and they had offended many people before. It was fun to see the dominant Heavenly Spirit Sect suffer a defeat.
But there were also some who felt apprehensive. Zhou Yuan was too reckless. Although he had defeated Mo Yuan, he had angered the powerful Heavenly Spirit Sect and would probably encounter a lot of trouble in the future.
Xuanzhou City, residence of the Yi clan.
Zhou Yuan was sitting cross-legged in a quiet and secluded courtyard with a red jewel-like Divine Dwelling medicine suspended between his palms. It continuously emitted a pure and strong scarlet red light that constantly flowed into Zhou Yuan's body.
The pure power of the Divine Dwelling medicine, after entering his body, traveled through the meridians and entered the Divine Dwellings to refine them.
This process lasted an hour.
By the time Zhou Yuan opened his eyes, the high-grade Divine Dwelling medicine in the palm of his hand had turned into dust and scattered with the wind.
Zhou Yuan's heart ached when he saw this. He had to consume two high-grade Divine Dwelling medicines every day for his training, and although his cultivation progress was good, the consumption was really painful.
According to his calculations, the fifty high-grade Divine Dwelling medicines he received as a reward for helping the Yi clan win the Prefecture Lord battle could, at most, support his training for less than a month.
Of course, if anyone else at the Divine Dwelling stage heard this, they would have already become enraged. For ordinary Divine Dwelling stage practitioners, one Divine Dwelling medicine was enough for several days of training, but with Zhou Yuan, it was used up in less than an hour.
But Zhou Yuan was also very helpless in the face of this. Their Chaos Divine Dwellings were powerful, but they were extremely difficult to refine.
"I have to find a constant source of medicine from the Divine Dwelling."
Zhou Yuan let out a long sigh. If his arsenal was depleted, his training would undoubtedly enter a period of very slow growth.
More importantly, he had already tasted the sweetness of two servings of high-grade Divine Dwelling medicines a day. If I reduced the amount, it would be extremely uncomfortable. As they say, it is easy to go from frugality to extravagance, but difficult to go from extravagance to frugality.
As Zhou Yuan sighed, a Yi clan servant arrived at the courtyard and respectfully let him know that Yi Qiushui had invited him to the front courtyard.
Zhou Yuan asked the reason, and the maid whispered that someone from the Heavenly Spirit Sect had arrived.
Zhou Yuan's heart trembled before he nodded. The Heavenly Spirit Sect was similar to a local tyrant in the Tianyuan region. It would be better to have a friendly relationship with them, as he did not want to have another powerful enemy.
He ordered a bit before following the servant to the front yard. On the way he met some young men from the Yi clan, who greeted him with kind and respectful smiles. Compared to before, there was undoubtedly a world of difference in their attitudes.
When they arrived at the front yard, Zhou Yuan walked in directly, swept his gaze around the area, and saw a thin middle-aged man sitting on the main seat. The man was dressed in a red robe embroidered with flame patterns.
Scarlet Flame Hall of the Celestial Sect.
Zhou Yuan remained calm. Mo Yuan's master, Gu Yan, was said to be the hall master of the Scarlet Flame Hall.
However, this person should not be Gu Yan, because although Zhou Yuan could feel the tyrannical Genesis Qi exuding from his body, the man was only at the Heavenly Sun stage and was not strong enough to be one of the masters. from the halls of the Celestial Spirit Sect.
Yi Qiushui and Yi Qianji were also in the front yard.
"Zhou Yuan," Yi Qiushui stood up and said with a smile: "This is the assistant Gu Xi of the Scarlet Flame Hall."
He leaned closer to Zhou Yuan and whispered, “Over the past few days, I managed to pull some strings to invite him here. It will be good for you if you can reconcile."
Zhou Yuan was a little moved by his gesture. The Yi clan probably wasn't afraid of Gu Yan coming to make trouble, which meant that Yi Qiushui had done this for him. After all, she knew that he was from another heaven and was unfamiliar with the place and people here. Therefore, it would not be good for him to anger the powerful Heavenly Spirit Sect.
Zhou Yuan nodded in gratitude, although he did not feel the need to do this.
He raised his head to look at Gu Xi, whose gaze was lowered and didn't even look at him.
Yi Qiushui turned his head and smiled at Gu Xi. "This is Zhou Yuan..."
Gu Xi waved his hand disdainfully, "I know, it's quite famous these days."
Yi Qiushui felt a little uncomfortable and didn't know what else to say. That was when Gu Xi put down the teacup in her hand and looked directly at Zhou Yuan. “Since Matriarch Qiushui came to find me and I have a good relationship with the Yi clan, I will speak truthfully to you.”
“This matter has already reached the ears of the hall master. Although he is a little unhappy, he is not narrow-minded and has no intention of stooping to the level of a little younger.”
“Furthermore, the hall master admires your talent and told me to convey the message to you that he can accept you into the sect as a registered disciple.”
Yi Qiushui's face lit up with joy.
But Zhou Yuan frowned slightly. He did not care about being a registered disciple of the Heavenly Spirit Sect. His teacher was the supreme sovereign Cang Yuan. What was Gu Yan compared to him?
Furthermore, he could deeply feel that there was not much kindness in Gu Xi's voice.
As expected, Gu Xi's tone of voice suddenly changed. “You damaged the face of our Scarlet Flame Hall and you will have to do something as a gesture of remorse. Hmm, when you were fighting Mo Yuan, the high-grade Heaven-level Genesis techniques you used seemed pretty good. You can offer them to enrich the treasury of the Hall of Scarlet Flame, and we will leave this matter behind.”
“Haha, your Genesis techniques should be from some inheritance you managed to stumble upon, right? “Your luck is quite good, but such a thing is not that uncommon in the Tianyuan region.”
And as his voice faded, the front yard suddenly fell silent.
