Chapter 829 Flexible
Several days after the pavilion's keynote address.
The wind district.
Zhou Yuan's spirit was sitting behind the blue wind stratum. A black brush flew in front of him in a very natural manner, finally drawing a mystical Genesis Rune.
Zhou Yuan's Spirit power surged, condensing into a warm stream of energy that flowed towards the center of the Genesis Rune.
Scarlet red light emerged from the Genesis Rune.
Zhou Yuan retrieved a small piece of jade and imprinted the Genesis Rune on it. The scarlet rays slowly receded as a jade with a fiery red Genesis Rune imprinted on it appeared.
Zhou Yuan reached out and grabbed it as a satisfied smile appeared at the corners of his lips.
"The Mother of Fire Rune is a success."
That was good. This was not the Wind Mother Rune, but the Fire Mother Rune.
When activated in the fire district, it would increase the Genesis Mark accumulation rate of the fire spirit rune.
Its effectiveness was on par with the Wind Mother Rune. The higher quality rune would increase one's efficiency by fifty percent.
Two more pieces of jade landed in his hand. One emitted a dark green glow, while the other glowed with a faint ash yellow light.
The mother forest rune and the mother mountain rune.
In the past few days, Zhou Yuan had not only crafted a large number of Mother Wind Runes, but also a batch of the other three Genesis Runes.
Even with such a fast production speed, no problems had arisen. It was exactly as he had imagined at the beginning: with the main bodies of the four ancient Genesis Runes, he could copy a small hint of their auras to use as the cores of these three Genesis Runes.
Zhou Yuan played with the jade pieces as he laughed softly.
With these three Genesis Runes, there will no longer be a need for the Mark Capture Rune in the future.
Zhou Yuan's spiritual power flowed out, sweeping away all the jade pieces as he descended rapidly.
A valley in the wind district.
A beam of spiritual light descended from the sky towards the body that was sitting silently within the valley. Zhou Yuan's tightly closed eyes slowly opened.
He stretched his back before putting away all the jade pieces. His figure then rose into the sky.
Wind Island, the pavilion master's quarters.
When Zhou Yuan appeared in the building, Ye Bingling and Yi Quishui quickly appeared in front of him.
“You're finally out. Did you know that two days ago some rumors began to spread in the accommodations of the new arrivals? These rumors clearly aim to disparage our Wind Pavilion. “They are saying that our Wind Pavilion is a garbage dump!”
“Furthermore, these rumors have also spread that the fire pavilion master, Lu Xiao, will become the main pavilion master of the four pavilions in four months, becoming the leader of the four pavilions!”
"I'm afraid this new batch will not have a good impression of our Wind Pavilion!"
Zhou Yuan's footsteps paused as he frowned deeply. "The methods of the Fire Pavilion are so simple."
These rumors were clearly the work of the Fire Pavilion.
Yi Quishui sighed helplessly. "Although these tactics are simple, they are also very effective."
A cold smile emerged from the corners of Zhou Yuan's lips. It seemed that Lu Xiao was really what he expected. Well, since you guys want to play like this, don't blame me for not showing mercy.
"How is the quality of the new batch?" Zhou Yuan asked.
Ye Bingling sighed and replied, “Not bad. According to our investigations, there are more than thirty ranks on the Divine Dwelling List this year, although most of them barely made the cut.”
"Oh?" Zhou Yuan was quite surprised.
He knew that these individuals did not have powerful backgrounds and were mostly unaffiliated cultivators. They were from the various regions of Hunyuan Heaven and had probably come to the Tianyuan region because of the Four Spirits Origin Tower.
Having such a remarkable achievement despite the conditions was more than enough proof of his talent. After joining the four pavilions, they are likely to progress rapidly in their cultivation, and some of them may even be among the top hundred of the Divine Dwelling List in the future.
The top hundred of the Divine Dwelling List were basically equivalent to people like Ye Bingling.
“Although the newcomer ceremony is tomorrow, the other three pavilions have already secretly contacted these thirty individuals in an attempt to recruit them. Likewise, we tried to do the same in the last few days when you were not around, but we did not achieve much results. "Most of them are a little hesitant when they hear about our Wind Pavilion."
Yi Qiushui said somewhat angrily: "It's because of those rumors that the Fire Pavilion has been spreading!"
Some anger was also seen on Ye Bingling's face. Evidently, she was quite displeased with those tactics.
Zhou Yuan's expression remained composed as he pondered for a while. He said: “There is no need to be too anxious. As individuals who managed to reach such heights despite not belonging to any faction, they should be quite cautious. They will not make decisions carelessly until the last moment.”
"Everything will be decided tomorrow at the newcomer ceremony."
Yi Qiushui nodded. Soon after, he smiled bitterly and said, “But even if we wait until tomorrow, our Wind Pavilion is still much less attractive than the Fire Pavilion.”
When the four pavilions were revealed tomorrow, the newcomers would naturally realize that the Fire Pavilion was indeed the strongest of the four pavilions and had the best conditions.
Ye Bingling's face also darkened a little.
"It may not be so." Zhou Yuan smiled mysteriously.
Yi Qiushui was still somewhat anxious as she said worriedly, “Zhou Yuan, if you think that the Mother of Wind Rune will be enough to fight the Fire Pavilion, I will have to inform you that you are wrong. The Wind Mother Rune can only be sold in the Wind Pavilion, while the Mark Capture Rune is highly sought after even in the other three pavilions.”
“Our Wind Pavilion will only suffer if you use the Wind Mother Rune to compete with them!
Zhou Yuan smiled and nodded. "The Wind Mother Rune alone is indeed insufficient."
“So…” Li Qiushui and Ye Bingling raised their eyebrows. Since he knew that the Mother Wind Rune was not enough, why was Zhou Yuan still so insistent?
However, from his mysterious and confident expression, the two young girls knew that he certainly had some kind of trump card. As such, their eyebrows furrowed as they pressed him, “What other tricks do you have up your sleeve? Tell us!"
Zhou Yuan could only laugh awkwardly in response, not bothering to hide his preparations any further. Anyway, everything would be revealed the next day. If I didn't calm them down, they probably wouldn't be able to sleep that night.
Therefore, he retrieved three pieces of jade and offered them to the two young ladies.
"What are these?" The girls received the jade pieces in confusion.
“Wind Rune Mother? It doesn't seem to be..."
Zhou Yuan laughed softly. "These are the Fire Mother Rune, the Mother Forest Rune, and the Mother Mountain Rune."
They froze, holding the jade pieces in their hands, then moved their heads up and looked at Zhou Yuan in disbelief.
They already understood everything from the names.
"These, these... have the same effect as the Wind Mother Rune?" Yi Qiushui's voice trembled slightly.
"Exactly the same." Zhou Yuan smiled as he nodded.
Yi Qiushui and Ye Bingling were silent for a moment. In the next instant, killing intent suddenly bloomed in their eyes as each one threw a punch at Zhou Yuan's face.
Zhou Yuan bewilderedly received his blows as a dumbfounded expression appeared on his face. He didn't understand why they reacted that way after revealing such an amazing treasure. Weren't they supposed to jump into his arms for joy?
“You bastard, you dare to hide such a thing. “How dare you make us worry for so long about nothing?” Ye Bingling gritted her teeth.
"Humph, are you very happy to see us stressing like scattered ants?" The usually polite Yi Qiushui also looked at him.
The corners of Zhou Yuan's lips twitched. Were all women that scary?
This was completely irrational!
I needed to teach them a lesson! They did not completely respect him as the pavilion master!
Zhou Yuan looked at the two girls.
Ye Bingling said, "It seems that tomorrow we should let him handle the newcomer ceremony alone."
Yi Qiushui added: "He can also handle all the affairs of the Wind Pavilion by himself in the future."
Zhou Yuan let out an uncomfortable cough. He looked down and said gently, "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have kept this from you two."
Forget it, men should be flexible. There was no need for him to make a fuss.
Nearby, Xiao Hong, Liu Zhixuan, and the other Wind Pavilion commanders who were watching turned around and left.
