Chapter 907 Multi-Party Attention
After Zhou Yuan accepted the challenge letter from the Three Mountain Alliance, the anticipation and buzz around the upcoming battle grew at an alarming speed.
Many factions sent their scouts to camp on the border between the Tianyuan Region and the Three Mountain Alliance.
Although it was merely a contest between two Divine Dwelling stage practitioners, everyone understood that it was the first true confrontation between the newly rising top-tier faction, the Three Mountains Alliance, and the declining veteran among the nine regions. . The result of the match would probably cause great ripples throughout Hunyuan Heaven.
Therefore, countless factions in Hunyuan Heaven looked towards the Tianyuan Region and the Three Mountain Alliance.
The Xuanji region.
In a sky observatory, Jiu Gong stared at the information that had been sent to his hands. A long time later, he finally put it down and commented, "The Three Mountain Alliance really knows how to choose its moment."
A beautiful girl asked from the side: "Big sister, who do you think will win?"
"If we were to look at the rankings, it would be Chen Xuandong, of course." Jiu Gong couldn't help but laugh. “But, after all, I had decided these rankings. "If something unexpected happens, it would mean that my information and discernment are not up to par."
He paused for a moment before adding, “But rankings cannot adequately represent one's power. Otherwise, in any dispute, one would only need to compare the rankings, and the lowest ranked one would have to bow their head in defeat.”
“I put Zhou Yuan in fourteenth place not because he is not strong but because I judged him based on Lu Xiao. "His rank only means that he lacks Lu Xiao, and doesn't say much about Zhou Yuan."
Jiu Gong grabbed a piece of jade with both hands, which contained all the information about Zhou Yuan and Chen Xuandong. He studied for a while before saying in a low voice, "But despite this, from the strength that both sides have shown, if Zhou Yuan hasn't made amazing growth since his battle with Lu Xiao, he will definitely lose."
"Does Senior Sister think so highly of Chen Xuandong?"
Jiu Gong casually threw the jade piece on the table as he calmly said, “It's not that I have a high opinion of him. "This is the judgment I made based on the information I received."
She shook her head and sighed.
“If Zhou Yuan really loses, the Tianyuan region will probably lose all face this time. What a pity. If Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan were still present, who would dare to stroke the whiskers of the tiger that is the mighty Tianyuan Region?”
He soon dismissed those thoughts. The nine regions tournament would arrive in three months. This was what he should focus on.
Only in the tournament of the nine regions would the true prides of the upper heavens be revealed. Chen Xuandong and Zhou Yuan were simply people with the qualifications to participate.
Wu Yao was sitting in front of a stone table on a landscape viewing platform, her slender figure and bright red dress giving her a fierce aura.
With long and narrow Phoenix eyes, he looked at the piece of jade in his hand as the corners of his lips curled up into an unreadable smile.
In front of Wu Yao, a man smiled lightly and said, “The Three Mountain Alliance is becoming more and more daring. “This is basically an attempt to trample on the face of the Tianyuan region.”
He was wearing a white robe and gave off an extraordinary air. His name was Lan Ting and he was second in status only to Wu Yao among the numerous disciples of the Wushen region. Regarding strength, he also had the qualifications to compete for the top ten spots on the Divine Dwelling List, but he was one of the hidden cards that the Wushen Region had prepared for the nine regions tournament and therefore , was not allowed to participate in the tournament qualifications. Together, he and Wu Yao were the strongest Divine Dwelling stage disciples in the Wushen Region, although one was out in the open, while the other was hidden in the shadows.
Lan Ting looked at the girl in red before him. Her severe, empress-like aura aroused an indescribable fascination deep in his heart. However, he hid it very well, not daring to show even a trace of him in front of her.
"Junior Sister Wu Yao, who do you think will win?" Lan Ting asked with a smile.
Wu Yao put down the jade piece. His expression did not change as he said flatly, “The Tianyuan Region will win.”
Lan Ting was stunned. His response exceeded his expectations.
However, Wu Yao had no intention of explaining and simply continued looking at the jade piece. From the information she had gathered during this period, she was certain that the Zhou Yuan of the Tianyuan Region was him!
It was the same Zhou Yuan from the Cangxuan Heaven Great Zhou Empire!
Wu Yao's nails gently scraped the jade piece. He really came to Hunyuan Heaven!
Furthermore, it had only taken him a year to become the leader of the experts in the Divine Dwelling stage in the Tianyuan Region. Such rapid progress... as expected from one who once possessed the blessing of the Holy Dragon!
She clearly understood how formidable he was. His blessing was taken away from him completely, essentially leaving him crippled. And yet, he finally crawled up and pulled off a nearly impossible reversal, triumphing over Wu Huang and even overthrowing the Great Wu Empire. He was not an ordinary individual. Therefore, Wu Yao did not believe that a mere Chen Xuandong could stop him.
"Zhou Yuan, have you come to recover the blessing of the Holy Dragon?" Wu Yao muttered in his heart. However, an abnormal madness secretly surged from the depths of his eyes.
"Let's see if you will devour me or if I will devour you!"
The Zixiao region.
In a certain room filled with a faint fragrance.
Su Youwei was sitting on her bed with her legs folded under her. His hand was firmly covering his mouth as his bright eyes looked at the jade piece in his other hand. The jade emitted rays of light that intertwined to form a translucent shining figure.
The figure belonged to a man. That appearance… who could it be but Zhou Yuan?
"Your Highness, it really is you..."
Su Youwei's eyes shone with tender light. If any of the other Zixiao region disciples saw her in this state, the entire earth would turn upside down.
However, Su Youwei didn't care about those things. After asking, he had finally obtained information about Zhou Yuan, the head pavilion master of the Tianyuan region. With a single glance, he had immediately recognized the familiar face in the image.
Although it had been many years since she had last seen him and he seemed more mature now, the memories buried deep in Su Youwei's heart came to the surface once again.
Therefore, even someone with a tough character like her couldn't help but feel the urge to cry.
Su Youwei's slender fingers trembled as she gently touched the image that was just a few centimeters away. The feelings in her heart made her suddenly jump out of bed and run several steps with bare feet. "I want to go to Tianyuan Region!"
But just as he was about to open the door, his hand stopped and his expression sank.
With the Nine Regions Tournament so close, he would not be able to leave the Zixiao Region.
However, this gloomy mood did not last long before it was thwarted by the joy of soon meeting an old friend again. Su Youwei twirled around the room, her skirt fluttering revealing a pair of stunning, beautiful and slender legs.
There was no rush. After all, he had already arrived at Hunyuan Heaven.
A girl's uncontrollable laughter rang through the room as she fell onto her soft bed. The corners of her red lips curled up slightly as she slowly closed her clear and limpid eyes.
It was a divinely beautiful sight.
"Seeing you again will be great."
With the various factions watching, a month passed in stealth.
