Chapter 813 The Eve of the Great Battle
The number of Mother Winds Rune sold continued to increase and was always sold out. On the other hand, the Mark Capturing Rune gradually disappeared from the Wind Pavilion and no one mentioned it anymore.
After all, they were the same price, but one had twice the effect. The Mark Capture Rune was simply knocked to the ground by the Mother Wind Rune without any strength to fight back.
The popularity of the Wind Mother Rune also caused Zhou Yuan's reputation to skyrocket.
Those who had experienced the efficiency of the Mother Wind Rune were particularly grateful to Zhou Yuan, because they knew how much time the Mother Wind Rune had saved them. In three years, the number of people in the Wind Pavilion who could refine a wind spirit rune would undoubtedly increase significantly.
This was the ultimate goal for many people who came to the four pavilions. Therefore, the birth of the wind mother rune did not make his feelings towards Zhou Yuan reach the level of deep gratitude. After all, it was not a free gift and it had been purchased with origin coins. Still, the Wind Pavilion members had finally recognized Zhou Yuan and were no longer excluding him because he was an outsider.
As a result, Zhou Yuan's reputation in the Wind Pavilion naturally grew every day.
Compared to Zhou Yuan, who was at the peak of power, Chen Beifeng was much sadder. Because of Zhou Yuan and Ye Bingling, the people who supported him were unable to purchase any Wind Mother Runes. Of course, they also knew the reason: Zhou Yuan's revenge for his previous actions.
Despite knowing the reason, there was nothing Chen Beifeng could do, and he had no choice but to grit his teeth and endure.
Even if he could bear it, of those who supported him, some gradually could not bear it anymore.
After all, they had already begun to feel that, with the Wind Mother Rune, others were gradually surpassing them in completing the wind spirit rune…
They had only supported Chen Beifeng because he was strong and because there were benefits to following him. But now that the Mother Wind Rune had appeared, Chen Beifeng had been beaten to a miserable state. If this continued, they would probably gradually sink into the Wind Pavilion.
Obviously, they couldn't accept that.
Then, in the next few days, the Wind Pavilion members who had supported Chen Beifeng also began to strike.
Chen Beifeng's influence in the Wind Pavilion quickly plummeted.
However, under this unfavorable circumstance, Chen Beifeng did not carry out any counterattack and strangely seemed to have given in. He rarely appeared and became much more discreet. Contrary to expectations, Zhou Yuan did not relax and instead became more cautious.
He knew that Chen Beifeng was not the kind of person who would willingly admit defeat, so even if Chen Beifeng was silent now, a huge storm had to be brewing.
With just a little thought, Zhou Yuan knew that the storm would break out during the next pavilion master selection.
If Chen Beifeng became the pavilion master of the Wind Pavilion, Chen Beifeng would no longer be limited by Zhou Yuan and Ye Bingling and could give them both orders. At that time, if they refused to listen, he could strip them of their positions as deputy pavilion masters.
Evidently, Chen Beifeng had put his last chance to come back into this.
After knowing Chen Beifeng's intention, Zhou Yuan began to slow down the refinement of the Wind Mother Runes and focused on training in the wind district, because his goal was also to become the pavilion master!
Only by achieving this position could he achieve his greatest ambitions.
With the position of chief pavilion master, he would be able to participate in the Nine Regions Meeting and get his hands on the Ancestral Dragon Lantern!
And the Wind Mother Rune was just a small means for him to achieve his goals...
Half a month passed in the blink of an eye.
On a lonely peak, Zhou Yuan sat cross-legged. He made a grabbing motion and a handful of origin coins flashed in his hand. As the blood and Qi surged, they burst into flames.
The origin coins turned into wisps of smoke and rose into the air. The layer of wind above him suddenly became violent, and a huge blue storm came roaring down like an angry Dragon, aiming directly at Zhou Yuan with tremendous power.
But Zhou Yuan remained surprisingly calm because he was used to seeing this strange sight during this half month of time.
After all, every time he came to practice in the wind district, he didn't feel comfortable without burning two or three hundred origin coins...
The blue storm whizzed by, mercilessly hitting Zhou Yuan's body and tearing thousands of marks on his skin.
A vortex of the Genesis Rune – the Mother of Wind Rune – formed in Zhou Yuan’s chest.
The astral wind swept across his body. Although the wind drew strands of blood, the Genesis marks contained within poured into his chest through the Genesis Rune vortex.
The huge storm lasted for almost an hour before it slowly dissipated, leaving Zhou Yuan covered in blood.
His injuries looked terrifying, but while operating the Taiyi Green Wood Mark, the injuries quickly recovered one after another.
Zhou Yuan did not care about the scars left on his body, and urgently glanced at the back of his hand to see that rays of blue light had gathered and a blue Genesis mark was barely discernible. The streams of light continued to accumulate endlessly and the Genesis Rune became more and more complete.
As the last speck of blue light sank, the Genesis Rune burst into a glow of light.
At this moment, Zhou Yuan could clearly feel that his body had become lighter, as if there was a spirit around his body. Without even operating Genesis Qi, his body could float in the air.
When he felt the changes within his body, a look of inconceivable joy welled up in his eyes, because on the eve of the pavilion master selection, he had completed the refinement of the wind spirit rune!
And for this, it was unknown how many Origin Coins Zhou Yuan had consumed. After all, the closer he got to completion, the more Origin Coins he needed.
If he hadn't been able to do whatever he wanted with the sales of the Wind Mother Runes, then even if he had the Divine Whetstone of Primordial Chaos to restore his spirit, it wouldn't have been possible to form a complete wind spirit rune in just one! two months!
However, the good thing was that heaven would not disappoint the person who tried. All the efforts he had made were met with satisfactory results.
The Genesis Rune light on the back of his hand gradually dispersed. Zhou Yuan was so happy that he raised his head and let out a loud cry. With a slight movement, it transformed into a beam of light and shot into the sky, accelerating towards the exit of the wind district.
After half an hour, Zhou Yuan's figure landed on the stone platform suspended from the exit.
All the members of the Wind Pavilion bowed respectfully when they saw Zhou Yuan. The treatment was completely different from when Zhou Yuan first arrived at the Wind Pavilion.
Zhou Yuan responded with a smile. He looked up to see a beautiful figure exuding an icy aura. It was Ye Bingling.
And when Ye Bingling's beautiful eyes saw Zhou Yuan, the cold frost around her melted a lot. A faint smile appeared on his face as he said in a low voice, “Qiushui said he got a private room at the Wind Restaurant to cheer us up for the selection of the pavilion master tomorrow.
Zhou Yuan smiled. "It's good to relax a little before the big battle."
The two headed towards the exit while talking.
But before they took a few steps, Zhou Yuan heard something streak through the air, followed by a fierce gush of Genesis Qi. The surrounding voices suddenly became much quieter.
Zhou Yuan frowned because the person who had come was Chen Beifeng. It was said that he had been training in the wind district like crazy these days.
Chen Beifeng was expressionless and his entirety exuded an icy coldness. When he landed on the stone platform, he also saw Zhou Yuan and Ye Bingling.
Their gazes met and a shower of sparks erupted from their gazes.
But in the end, Chen Beifeng simply snorted and moved forward. As he passed Zhou Yuan and Ye Bingling, he said indifferently, “You won't be happy for long. After tomorrow, everything you have will be taken from you and returned to its original owner.”
He looked pitifully at Zhou Yuan because he knew that Zhou Yuan had gone to find Lu Xiao, which meant that Lu Xiao would not show him the slightest mercy.
Idiot, you must not know the consequences of angering Lu Xiao.
For the past half month, Zhou Yuan probably saw himself as a central figure, right? Haha, wait until tomorrow. Then you will find out that everything you did was to give it to me, Chen Beifeng, as a gift.
At that time, will this child still laugh?
A carefree feeling bubbled in Chen Beifeng's heart, and the corners of his mouth curled up into a disdainful smile. He walked forward and exited the light screen before disappearing without a trace.
I was very impatiently anticipating such a scene.
