Chapter 888 Dragon's Resentment Appears
The storm-like shockwaves of Genesis Qi roared at the top of the mountain, and where it passed, countless rocks and trees were turned into smithereens. Above the ground, waves of earth hundreds of meters high gushed out toward the periphery, violently shaking the entire towering mountain.
A large crack spread even across the top. The cliffs collapsed into pieces, causing dust to swirl.
Countless people looked on in shocked disbelief.
Achieving this degree of destructive power in a Divine Dwelling stage battle was not easy. The ferocity of the match between Zhou Yuan and Lu Xiao was obvious.
All eyes were fixed on the top of the mountain. No one dared to blink even once.
Under the countless watchful gazes, two figures emerged from the raging waves on the ground. The two landed on the ground, creating two deep trenches.
It was Zhou Yuan and Lu Xiao!
His clothes were torn apart, exposing his upper body and revealing blood stains, particularly on his cuffs. His skin was broken and his bones were barely visible.
From the looks of it, the two sides were evenly matched in the horrible exchange above!
This result caused many people to gasp in astonishment. Although they didn't understand why Liu Xiao's strength had skyrocketed to such a terrifying level, they knew that he had to have paid an unknown price in return. In his opinion, since Lu Xiao had provoked such an attack, it was correct to see such a result.
But the current situation made them understand that they had still underestimated Zhou Yuan, the dark horse. His tenacity exceeded his imagination.
"Zhou Yuan is not ordinary!"
“It is said that he has just reached the advanced stage of Divine Dwelling. If my guess is correct, he most likely only connected seven of his nine Divine Dwellings. If he is already this powerful, how terrifying would it be when all nine of his Divine Dwellings integrate and his potential explodes?”
"If you connect the nine dwellings, Lu Xiao will have no chance."
"Its potential is simply terrifying!"
Lu Xiao was very overbearing because he had already connected to his ninth Divine Dwelling, which also indicated that his strength had reached its limit. If he wanted to rise again, he would need outside opportunities, and that opportunity was rare and difficult to come by.
But it was not the same for Zhou Yuan. He had only connected through the seventh Divine Dwelling, which meant that his potential at the Divine Dwelling stage had not yet been fully squeezed.
Therefore, if Zhou Yuan and Lu Xiao were compared to each other, many people would lean towards Zhou Yuan's side.
If Zhou Yuan could defeat Lu Xiao, he would become the top Divine Dwelling stage expert in the Tianyuan Region. And if he connected to the ninth Divine Dwelling, perhaps he would have the qualification to compete with the top celestial prides of the other eight regions.
Zhou Yuan would have enough strength to rank ninth on the Divine Dwelling List on his own. This did not depend on the other regions giving face to the Tianyuan Region and increasing their ranking.
There was complete silence on the Fire Pavilion side. Zuo Ya clenched both hands and gritted his teeth. She was upset that Zhou Yuan was like an invincible monster. He had clearly fallen into a disadvantageous situation, but he was still able to finally turn the tide!
It should be said that Lu Xiao had almost revealed all of his trump cards!
But even so, he still couldn't crush Zhou Yuan. What did that mean?
At this very moment, no matter how short-sighted Zuo Ya was, he had no choice but to face this question because it meant that the insignificant person in his eyes already possessed the qualification to compete against Lu Xiao.
Thinking of this, Zuo Ya suddenly felt a chill rise from his feet to his heart, because he had to think about what the consequences would be if Lu Xiao lost.
“Impossible,” Zuo Ya muttered and immediately shook his head. She would never believe that Zhou Yuan could beat Lu Xiao.
“Don't worry too much. Although Zhou Yuan is very troublesome, he may not necessarily win in the end.”
Hearing Zhu Lian's calmness, Zuo Ya, like a drowning person holding on to the last straw, nodded firmly. "Big Brother Lu Xiao will definitely win!"
A mouthful of blood came out of Lu Xiao's mouth, and fury surged within his dark eyes. His previous attack had failed to crush Zhou Yuan completely, and it was a huge blow to his heart. After all, he had fought up to this point and had even taken out the nine-headed abyssal python.
Even so, Zhou Yuan had still blocked his attack!
Wouldn't that mean that he would have already lost to Zhou Yuan if he didn't have the blood of the nine-headed abyssal python?
Lu Xiao's originally handsome face was contorted. In the past, Zhou Yuan didn't even deserve a glance, and simply looked down on Zhou Yuan's victories.
He believed that Zhou Yuan's previous victories were only possible because he had not taken any action and that once he did, Zhou Yuan's good luck would come to an end.
That was what I had always thought.
Looking at the blood-soaked figure in the distance, Lu Xiao felt a trace of regret in his heart. If he had known that Zhou Yuan would become so difficult to deal with, he would have gone with Fang Qi to Yu Prefecture to ambush and kill him!
If that had been the case, I wouldn't have so many problems!
Lu Xiao's face was cloudy. He understood that if he had that thought, it meant that he had truly lost and needed to crush Zhou Yuan.
Lu Xiao took a deep breath. A determined and fierce expression appeared in his eyes.
He quickly clapped his hands together and a black aura mixed with blood seeped through the cracks in his body.
The monstrous black aura gathered behind him, and the dark shadow of the nine-headed abyssal python became clearer. Vaguely, nine pairs of cold and ferocious eyes could be seen hidden in the dark mist.
The python's whistle sounded from the black mist, and then nine tremendous mouths opened wide, ruthlessly biting down on Lu Xiao's giant body.
Lu Xiao let out an anguished cry, black snake-like objects moving beneath his skin, making him look particularly tragic.
However, it was at this moment that the nine-headed black shadow quickly shrank, as if turning into black mist and completely integrating with Lu Xiao's body.
The black mist outside Lu Xiao's body became more and more intense and even became sticky.
After a few breaths, the black mist receded, solidifying on the surface of his body as if turning into a black outer layer.
Countless people stared at the billowing black mist in stunned disbelief. They could clearly feel an extremely tyrannical aura emerging from within them as if the true nine-headed abyssal python was coming into the world.
Black mist surged and a foot wrapped in a cloak of black stepped out. The black mist suddenly dissipated, revealing Lu Xiao covered in black shell-like armor.
On top of this, the skin around Lu Xiao's neck writhed as nine python heads pierced out, each spitting and hissing, making bone-chilling screeching noises.
At this moment, Lu Xiao was like a snake demon crawling out of an abyss!
Countless people turned pale upon seeing the nine pythons. This was because the nine-headed abyssal python's blood had largely fused with Lu Xiao's body. But was it Lu Xiao who had fused with the nine-headed abyssal python, or was it the nine-headed abyssal python that had fused with him? If Lu Xiao couldn't keep a clear mind, he would become a snake demon without any rationality.
Lu Xiao's tongue had also become long and thin, and his eyes were completely like snakes, filled with cruelty and killing intent. He licked his face.
He stomped his feet, his figure shot straight into the sky, and the ground collapsed.
Endless black mist roared out from his body and then, like a black meteor, shot downwards.
Lu Xiao clenched his fist and threw a punch. Nine snake heads emerged from his neck and coiled around his arms. The power of his fist almost directly broke the void.
This punch was Lu Xiao's full force punch!
Before the wind caused by the fist could subside, the ground began to collapse.
Countless people were stunned by his full force attack!
A cold hiss came from Lu Xiao's mouth.
Under the watchful gaze of countless people, Lu Xiao, who looked like a snake demon, descended directly on Zhou Yuan, who was motionless. The feeling was as if he was frozen in place in fear of Lu Xiao's counterattack.
Lu Xiao zoomed towards him and launched another punch.
Seeing the destructive blow rapidly growing before his eyes, Zhou Yuan took a deep breath and then slowly closed his eyes.
All his fingers tensed.
In the palm of his hand, something that had been silent for a long time seemed to be quietly awakening.
"Since you want to die, I will fulfill your wish!"
His eyes snapped open and his pupil gradually changed to that of a Dragon.
An intense blood-red aura containing indescribable madness gushed out from his palm like a torrent.
"Dragon's Resentment Transformation!"
