Chapter 943 Withdrawal
Zhou Yuan's figure flashed through the spatial passage.
The interior of Fallen Abyss was very peculiar. After leaving a mini domain, one would find themselves in a very open, street-like spatial passage.
Space occasionally distorted within the passage, and substances that seemed to be space membranes floated in the air. Behind each membrane was a mini domain, and they seemed countless, making for an extremely surprising sight.
Zhou Yuan had a grave expression as he pushed his speed to the limit.
He did not dare to relax even a little after entering the spatial passage because he could still faintly feel an extremely sharp undulation rapidly approaching from behind.
It was probably Zhao Mushen's attack.
It felt like someone was threateningly pointing a knife at his back.
"It's really quite impressive." Zhou Yuan frowned slightly. Logically speaking, Zhao Mushen's Genesis Qi attack should have missed Zhou Yuan once he hid in the spatial rift. However, it seemed that Zhao Mushen's attack was still firmly focused on him.
From their initial meeting, Zhou Yuan could see that the king of the Hunyuan Heaven Divine Dwelling List was truly extraordinary.
As these thoughts swirled in Zhou Yuan's head, the area behind him suddenly shook. A beam of light shot out, heading straight for the back of Zhou Yuan's head.
Zhou Yuan could finally see what it was.
It was a shiny and elegant shuttle that gave off an elegant charm. However, the strong Qi contained within caused even Zhou Yuan's expression to change slightly.
The spear seemed to sense Zhou Yuan's presence, its speed increasing abruptly.
Zhou Yuan's expression changed once again. His figure became blurry as he walked away like a shadow.
Within the spatial passage, one object chased another at an extremely fast speed.
However, as time passed, Zhou Yuan discovered that the glowing shuttle was still as bright as before, with no signs of dimming. He could continuously absorb the surrounding Genesis Qi to replenish his energy while chasing him. In fact, the shuttle seemed to become more and more powerful as time passed.
In other words, it wouldn't stop until it hit him.
More importantly, the gap between them gradually closed.
Zhou Yuan's eyes flickered thoughtfully. After being chased for so long, he could already measure the strength of the spear. Furthermore, his initial Transforming Stage Spirit had acutely sensed a Spirit Destructive Ripple hidden within the shuttle.
The shuttle could damage not only his physical body but also his Spirit.
What a dominant attack!
Zhao Mushen's attack may not seem extraordinary, but there was a cruelty hidden within it.
"It seems that running away won't solve the problem..."
Zhou Yuan took a deep breath. He had already sensed Li Qiushui and the other's location. They had exited through a space membrane some distance ahead of him. If he missed it, he would be alone.
If that happened, it would be impossible for him to fight against a team of several hundred people, no matter how strong he was.
Therefore, he needed to block the shuttle when it reached that space membrane!
Having made his decision, Zhou Yuan put aside all doubts and charged forward. A few dozen breaths later, a spatial membrane appeared in front of him and he charged straight at it.
When his figure disappeared, the shuttle that stepped on him instantly pierced the space membrane.
In a mini domain.
Currently several hundred dejected figures gathered. They were the Tianyuan Region team that had escaped. The events that had occurred earlier had dealt a substantial blow to his morale.
Yi Qiushui was standing on a rock as he continuously looked towards a certain place behind them. His eyes were filled with anxiety and worry.
Shang Xiaoling and the others tried to comfort her, but they had no faith in their own words. Although Zhou Yuan was not weak, he was facing the strongest Divine Dwelling stage expert in Hunyuan Heaven!
Therefore, the group could only wait awkwardly. If Zhou Yuan lost, the team would fall apart.
As they waited, the space behind them suddenly broke as a figure shot out.
Several hundred people burst into emotional cheers when they saw the familiar silhouette.
However, Zhou Yuan was unable to pay attention to them as he sped towards a nearby mountain valley.
Almost immediately after he moved, the shuttle shot out right behind him, pulsing with deadly energy as it tore through the air and slid toward the back of his neck like a bolt of lightning.
Zhou Yuan managed to reach the valley first.
Genesis Qi instantly exploded from his body without reservation, and he revealed all of his 38 million Genesis Qi stars and activated his four spirit runes, adding another 13 million stars!
Diagram of the origin of the four spirits!
Another 6 million!
A total of 57 million Genesis Qi stars twinkled in the air as the majestic Genesis Qi unfolded. The surrounding valley began to crumble.
Zhou Yuan howled to the sky as the Heavenly Yuan Brush appeared in his hand.
He stared at the rapidly approaching shuttle of destruction. This time, he no longer tried to avoid it. With a stomp of his foot, the ground collapsed, and he shot into the air.
Dazzling rays of light exploded from the Heavenly Yuan Brush.
The snow-white hairs turned completely black.
"Millions of whales!"
The cry of an ancient whale sounded. A whale several hundred feet long appeared in the sky and glided towards the Heavenly Yuan Brush.
The black brush in Zhou Yuan's hand was similar to a Dragon, its sharp tip pulsating with terrible energy. He tore through the air and dove straight toward the glowing shuttle.
A loud noise boomed like thunder.
Visible to the naked eye, Genesis Qi rippled from the collision. The valley floor burst open, and layer after layer of dirt and rock flew through the air as if a powerful force had scraped away three feet of earth.
Yi Qiushui and the rest, who had been running, hurriedly retreated.
At the epicenter of the confrontation, Zhou Yuan stared at the tip of the Heavenly Yuan Brush, where the shuttle emitted a dazzling light and pulsed with terrifying power. Wave by wave, he disintegrated the hairs on the Brush, but the hairs quickly grew back.
The two forces had fallen into a temporary stalemate.
Veins were throbbing on Zhou Yuan's forehead, and the flesh on his arms split open, making him look exceptionally miserable. He did not dare to relax because the shuttle would deal a fatal blow if it passed through the Heavenly Yuan Brush.
Fortunately, the stalemate only lasted a dozen breaths before a faint crackling sound could be heard.
The spear fractured and then suddenly exploded.
The instant it burst out, a small, almost undetectable transparent figure shot towards Zhou Yuan's head like a ghost.
However, the strange attack did not escape Zhou Yuan's senses. I was already prepared. With a wave of his sleeve, a spirit lantern appeared with a flame leaping within it.
"Spiritual Lantern Art!"
Powerful flames erupted from the lantern and engulfed the tiny figure of light.
A piercing screech erupted from the tiny figure of light. It writhed in the flames like a worm as it stubbornly tried to charge towards Zhou Yuan's head. However, when he was still an inch away from Zhou Yuan's head, the Spirit fire burned him into nothing.
When the figure of light completely disappeared, the powerful Genesis Qi swirling around Zhou Yuan's body also dissipated.
His tense body began to relax little by little as sweat ran down his back.
Zhou Yuan stared at the faint afterglow as he pursed his lips. Spots of silver emerged from beneath his skin, a sign that Silver Shadow was about to activate. If he was unable to block the attack at the last moment, he would have had no choice but to summon Silver Shadow.
Fortunately for him, he had finally managed to neutralize Zhao Mushen's attack.
Outside the valley, Yi Qiushui and the others cheered as they saw that nothing had happened to Zhou Yuan.
His eyes were full of respect. The fact that Zhou Yuan had successfully escaped from Zhao Mushen's hands and even neutralized his attack was more than a testament to his leader's strength.
Zhou Yuan was indifferent to their cheers. He didn't feel that blocking a single attack from Zhao Mushen was something to be proud of.
He lowered his head and looked at his arms. They were covered in wounds due to the reaction of the confrontation.
A casual attack from Zhao Mushen had forced Zhou Yuan to use his full strength, even almost drawing out a trump card like Silver Shadow. Zhao Mushen's power had surpassed Zhou Yuan's expectations.
If they fought a real battle, Zhou Yuan's life would definitely be at risk.
Zhou Yuan watched expressionlessly as the wounds on his arms slowly recovered.
This clash allowed him to understand Zhao Mushen's strength. However, Zhou Yuan did not lose his spirit, but instead began to burn with competitive battle intent.
He spat out a breath of air as he turned towards the sky, his gaze seemingly penetrating space to see Zhao Mushen's figure.
"Zhao Mushen, you have won this round..."
He slowly closed his eyes before suddenly opening them, revealing a look of determination.
He had already decided that he would do everything possible to unlock the ninth Divine Dwelling.
“Zhao Mushen, when I unlock my ninth Divine Dwelling, we will properly settle this debt…”
