Chapter 905 Accept
A single challenge card created giant ripples in the Tianyuan region and the neighboring lands.
Countless people were surprised because they knew the meaning behind the challenge. Previously, the Three Mountains Alliance had only provoked the Tianyuan region in small matters, but this challenge letter was a borderline declaration of war.
Although the participants in the battle were simply the most prominent Divine Dwelling stage practitioners from both camps, it was evident that the Three Mountains Alliance was no longer afraid of offending the Tianyuan Region, which was once its elder brother.
Since there was no chance of reconciliation, the subsequent clashes would only become more and more intense.
This attracted countless gazes. After all, a top-tier faction challenging one of the nine regions was rarely seen in the long history of Hunyuan Heaven.
At the same time, it also made countless people sigh deeply. The Tianyuan region had truly fallen in recent years. Otherwise, even if the Three Mountains Alliance were a top-tier faction, how could they dare to stroke a tiger's whiskers?
The Three Mountains Alliance had three Law Domain stage experts, while the Tianyuan Region had five.
There was not a large strength gap between the apex forces on both sides. Furthermore, the Three Mountains Alliance had seen rapid growth in recent years, and although its foundation still could not match the Tianyuan Region, it was not much weaker than the Tianyuan Region as a whole.
If war broke out between them, the Tianyuan region would probably pay a terrible price even if they won.
More importantly, once the Tianyuan Region was weakened because of that, other top-tier factions in the Hunyuan Heaven might start coming up with ideas to challenge them. If that happened, what would the Tianyuan Region do?
Without a supreme sovereign, the Tianyuan Region had already lost its previous transcendent status.
Therefore, many knew that the Three Mountain Alliance was trying to feel out the Tianyuan Region this time, hoping to find out exactly how much of the region's former power remained.
The entire Tianyuan region was filled with anger.
The Three Mountain Alliance's challenge angered countless people. After all, as members of the Tianyuan Region, they still had the pride of being one of the nine regions. Many years ago, before the Three Mountains Alliance was formed, those three first-class factions were simply subjects bowing to the Tianyuan Region!
But now, the once little brother had turned against them. How could the people of the Tianyuan Region endure such outrage?
For a time, countless voices headed towards the Tianyuan utopia, wanting the higher-ups to display a power that would put the Three Mountain Alliance in its place.
However, an inconceivable worry was within these numerous angry voices. The challenge letter issued by the Three Mountain Alliance was from Chen Xuandong, and was addressed to the main pavilion master of the four pavilions, Zhou Yuan.
How would the top brass of the Tianyuan region respond?
Accept? But Chen Xuandong was ranked ninth on the Divine Dwelling List and was currently the most dazzling super dark horse, his radiance far surpassing that of the new head pavilion master. Since he dared to send a letter of challenge so openly, he had to have unwavering confidence in himself.
If they accepted and Zhou Yuan lost, would the Tianyuan region really have to give up their participation rights in the nine regions tournament?
If so, would the Tianyuan Region dare to show its face again?
But what if they refused?
One of the nine all-powerful regions that refuses to recognize a challenge from a mere top-tier faction. What would they have looked like?
Therefore, some of the more insightful people sighed inwardly. The challenge was a major headache for the Tianyuan region's top brass.
The Utopia Tianyuan, inside a conference room.
Five figures were seated, each maintaining their silence. However, a terrifying pressure was brewing in the hall.
These five figures were naturally the five great elders of the Tianyuan region.
The silence lasted for a long time before Sect Master Xuan Kun looked towards Chi Jing, pushing the challenge card in his hand as he asked indifferently, “How shall we handle this matter? Do we accept or reject?"
Chi Jing glanced at the challenge card as a dangerous look appeared on his blonde face. "Since you dare to challenge us, why don't we dare to receive it?"
Sect Master Xuan Kun lowered his eyelids and said, “It's easy to say. Chen Xuandong is very strong and the Three Mountain Alliance has dedicated countless resources to him. His talent is also exceptional. Do you think Zhou Yuan will be his rival?"
Chi Jing let out an icy laugh. "Our Tianyuan Region can't afford to lose face!"
"We also can't afford to lose the challenge." Sect Master Xuan Kun said slowly, “I suggest that we ignore this challenge and the Three Mountain Alliance's provocations. That way, they will not be able to achieve their goal.”
Chi Jing said coldly, “Do they cower like a turtle? If my master returns in the future, he might tear the Tianyuan region apart in anger.”
Clan Leader Bai Ye of the White Clan smiled slightly and said, “It is best if Grand Elder Chi Jing has some information about Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan. We will only need to reveal this information and the Three Mountain Alliance will no longer have the guts to provoke us.”
Chi Jing responded expressionlessly, “If I knew, would some people have the balls to repeatedly argue with me? However, I am sure that nothing has happened to my master. “Once there is an opportunity, it will appear naturally.”
The clan leader, Bai Ye, sighed softly. "But I heard that the sacred race had attacked the supreme sovereign Cang Yuan and that he may have already fallen."
Chi Jing's face turned icy as he looked at Clan Leader Bai Ye.
Clan Leader Mu Ni’s gentle voice sounded, “If Clan Leader Bai Ye has such thoughts, you can leave the Tianyuan Region with your White Clan. I think the others won't stop you."
The corners of Bai Ye's eyes twitched for a moment. Regardless of his thoughts, he would not dare to do anything before determining Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan's situation. Otherwise, what would he do if Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan appeared? The fury of a Saint was not something he could withstand, even if he was a Law Domain stage expert .
The clan leader, Bian Chang of the Profound Crystal Clan, spoke in a deep voice: “Let's end this useless talk. "The Tianyuan region is an entity and no one expects anything bad to happen to it."
The five great elders were silent. They understood that fighting would not solve the problem.
Clan Leader Bai Ye raised his eyelids and said, “What is the situation of Chief Pavilion Master Zhou Yuan?”
Chi Jing said indifferently: "He is in secluded cultivation."
Clan Leader Bai Ye’s white hair swayed gently as he calmly said, “As the head pavilion master, he is the leader of the younger generation. Since this matter is directed at him, we should see his stance.”
Chi Jing nodded. Just as he was about to speak, his expression suddenly changed as he extended his hand and pointed towards a certain place. A jade talisman appeared and landed in his hand.
“It's from Elder Yi. Zhou Yuan is already aware of this matter, he says…” Chi Jing’s eyes flashed slightly as he read the information on the jade talisman. "He says the challenge can be accepted but hopes it can be delayed for a month."
These words caused the expressions of the other four great elders to change a little.
Sect Master Xuan Kun’s face was indifferent as he said, “Talk big for someone so young. It is not a simple matter that can be accepted with such indifference. “This matter not only affects him, but also the reputation of our Tianyuan region.”
Chi Jing replied, “If Sect Master Xuan Kun has another plan, please feel free to share it. Naturally, we will support it if it is feasible."
Sect Master Xuan Kun chuckled before saying in a low voice, “This old man has no plan. Since Grand Elder Chi Jing feels that he can do it, go ahead and let him accept the challenge. However, if it fails, I hope that Grand Elder Chi Jing can deal with the aftermath.”
His intention was for Chi Jing to bear the consequences if Zhou Yuan was defeated.
Indifference covered Chi Jing's blonde face. "Don't worry. The Tianyuan Region is the property left by my master. Even if I lose my life, I will not let the Tianyuan Region lose face."
He stood up with a determined expression.
“Response to the Alliance of the Three Mountains. Our Tianyuan region will accept this challenge and the date will be set one month later. Furthermore, the Three Mountains Alliance cannot issue such a challenge for free. Tell them that if they want to challenge us, prepare one hundred Immeasurable Divine Dwelling Fruits!”
"And if they lose, the amount will be increased to three hundred!"
The immeasurable fruits of the Divine Dwelling were a resource produced by the Three Mountains Alliance. When consumed, it would unlock one of one's Divine Dwellings, which was why it was called a Divine Dwelling stage miracle medicine. It only worked on Divine Dwelling stage practitioners and was only effective once. It was considered one of the critical strategic resources of Three Mountain Alliance.
Three hundred was almost several years of production.
Evidently, Chi Jing intended to deal a ruthless blow to the Three Mountain Alliance!
