Chapter 944 Clash Between Law Domain Experts
In a scattered mess of a mountain valley.
When the wounds on Zhou Yuan's arms finally closed, he jumped into the air and landed next to the cheering Tianyuan Region crowd on one side of the valley.
"Zhou Yuan, are you okay?" Yi Qiushui was the first to rush forward, her pretty oval-shaped face filled with worry.
Although they had been separated by some distance, he could still feel how terrifying Zhao Mushen's attack had been. More importantly, the attack had followed Zhou Yuan through the spatial passage.
Zhou Yuan shook his head and said, “Zhao Mushen is very strong. "If I had stayed back to fight, I most likely would have lost."
Shang Xiaoling and the others suddenly rushed over and blurted out a succession: “Pavilion Chief Master, you are already very amazing. That's the Zhao Mushen! If word spreads that you managed to safely retreat from under their eyes, it would definitely cause quite a commotion.”
Zhou Yuan chuckled. He naturally understood how great Zhao Mushen was in the hearts of the Heaven Hunyuan Divine Dwelling stage practitioners. Therefore, he did not blame Shang Xiaoling and the others for being full of respect and fear when they talked about Zhao Mushen.
However, Zhou Yuan did not say anything more on the topic. He looked at the group and said, “It was our bad luck to have encountered the Wanzu Region and Zhao Mushen, but since we managed to retreat unscathed, there is no need for us to dwell on it.”
"We will continue to search for these mini domains and if we encounter another team, we will explore them first and report back before we decide our next course of action."
Zhou Yuan then spread a series of instructions. The Tianyuan Region group listened obediently before dispersing to carry out their orders.
Zhou Yuan found a rock and sat down.
He needed to inspect his seal urgently first. Otherwise, they would only face more trouble if Zhao Mushen managed to chase after them. After all, it was not possible for Zhou Yuan's team to continue retreating.
Zhou Yuan raised his hand as a faint seal emerged on his back.
His Spirit reached out and entered the seal, carefully searching for any strange ripples. This seal was the work of the nine regions’ Law Domain stage experts. As such, the auras of the experts maintained a certain balance, serving to monitor each other.
Zhou Yuan based his inspection on this balance point, trying to find out if something was wrong.
After a long time, Zhou Yuan lowered his hand as his expression relaxed slightly. His findings told him that the auras within the seal were indeed in balance. In other words, Zhao Xiansun's trick was a one-time thing.
This made sense. After all, no matter how amazing Zhao Xiansun was, he couldn't manage to continue fooling the rest of the Law Domain stage experts.
Therefore, Zhou Yuan no longer needed to worry about Zhao Mushen chasing after them.
This gave him some time to increase his strength.
After putting down this worry, Zhou Yuan closed his eyes. Although he had finally neutralized Zhao Mushen's attack, it had cost him a lot and he needed to recover his Genesis Qi.
As Zhao Yuan recovered, he did not notice the ripples he had caused outside the Fallen Abyss.
Half a day earlier, outside Fallen Abyss.
A group of Law Domain stage experts were sitting in the air, vast Genesis Qi gathering around them like clouds.
Their gazes were fixed on a giant compass in front of them. More than ten thousand points flashed on the compass, representing the tournament participants from the nine regions.
Chi Jing's eyes were also glued to the compass. Through the aura he had left on the seals, he could clearly differentiate which point belonged to which individual.
From the beginning, he paid close attention to Zhou Yuan's point.
She watched as he led the team into a mini domain, and soon discovered that another team had entered at practically the same time.
His pupils shrank slightly, evidently recognizing the team.
The Wanzu Region, Zhao Mushen!
Chi Jing was silent. A terrifying undulation emerged from her body, and all the Law Domain stage experts present suddenly looked towards her.
Chi Jing raised a slender finger and endless Genesis Qi converged above his head, transforming into a ten thousand feet long bright blue blade. The blade seemed to be made of glass, a sign that Genesis Qi had been compacted to the limit.
When the blade appeared, cracks formed in the surrounding space.
The blue sword pierced through the air as it mercilessly slashed towards Zhao Xiansun with destructive power.
Zhao Xiansun raised his eyebrow as he waved his sleeve. The boundless Genesis Qi converged towards him, forming a pair of ten thousand feet wide wings. The wings blocked the sun, its crystalline feathers shining in the light.
The blue blade collided with a wing, causing layers of space to crumble around it.
The other Law Domain stage experts were greatly alarmed and quickly moved to neutralize the aftershocks of the clash. Otherwise, the land below would be destroyed instantly.
Zhao Xiansun asked indifferently: "Grand Elder Chi Jing, are you crazy?"
Chi Jing let out an icy laugh. “Zhao Xiansun, I never imagined that a powerful Law Domain expert like you would be so despicable. Aren't you afraid that your little tricks will bring shame to the Wanzu region?"
He pointed toward the compass. The other Law Domain experts followed his finger and instantly discovered that Zhou Yuan and Zhao Mushen had met, causing them to frown slightly.
As Law Domain experts, none of them were fools. Therefore, they knew that it was highly unlikely that Zhou Yuan and Zhao Mushen would meet in the first round.
Zhao Mushen simply smiled and said, “Grand Elder Chi Jing, do not make baseless accusations. Do you have any proof?"
He had done it very cleanly and was not afraid of being discovered. Therefore, the other party could not do anything to him as long as he did not admit it.
Chi Jing, however, had no intention of arguing. An icy light flashed in his eyes as he slowly raised a slender finger. Blue light pulsed from his body.
In the next instant, a huge blue Law Domain appeared behind her.
An endless blue wind howled within the Domain of Law. The wind possessed devastating power and could turn everything into nothing wherever it passed.
Wind God Law Domain!
Zhao Xiansun's eyes widened when he saw that Chi Jing had directly taken out his Law Domain. Only one Law Domain could match another, and even he did not dare to easily let himself fall into another's Law Domain. person.
Therefore, he let out a cold snort and waved his sleeve. A Domain of Law abruptly emerged from him, spreading outwards.
Within this Domain of Law, a seemingly endless flood of flying creatures could be seen emitting a majestic presence.
Immortal Falcon Law Domain!
Zhao Xiansun's Immortal Falcon Law Domain was said to possess terrifying power and had once devoured a hundred thousand miles of mountains in one gulp.
The two Law Domain experts clashed, filling the entire area with a murderous aura.
The other Law Domain experts shouted at them to stop. If they fought with their Domains of Law, the nearby Fallen Abyss might be affected. If that happened, the disciples of the nine regions would probably suffer enormous losses.
The gray-robed Zixiao Region Law Domain Expert, Elder Lu Xuangang, said in a deep voice, “Neither of us will be able to bear responsibility for the consequences of fighting here.”
Jin Zhong's voice resounded like thunder, "If you want to fight, find an opportunity after the nine regions tournament is over."
The other Law Domain experts nodded their heads, indicating that they would take action against the two if they started fighting.
Lu Xuangang looked towards Zhao Xiansun. “Zhao Xiansun, the nine regions tournament must be fair. As a host, these little tricks are unbecoming of your position."
Zhao Xiansun narrowed his eyes and chuckled. "I don't know what Senior Brother Lu is talking about."
Jin Zhong of the Wushen Region laughed and said, "Why are you still so shameless?"
Zhao Xiansun's performance might work against an ordinary person, but it was useless to Law Domain experts like them.
Zhao Xiansun maintained his smile, ignoring Jin Zhong's mockery. His skin was clearly very thick and his character was unscrupulous.
The Law Domain expert from the Yaogui region had fair skin and no eyebrows. Several shiny beads rolled between his fingers as he showed a faint smile and said, “Everyone, it is useless to argue about such things. Even if Zhao Xiansun did something, it's our fault for not realizing it."
This person was called Zhen Yu, and he was a quite famous individual in Hunyuan Heaven.
However, his words were clearly supportive of Zhao Xiansun.
For a time, the Law Domain experts argued in the air, creating a rather noisy atmosphere.
But from the looks of it, there was no way for the battle to continue.
A Law Domain expert who was looking at the compass suddenly exclaimed, “Huh? Did Zhou Yuan run away with his team?”
The discussion stopped as everyone immediately glanced at each other. Sure enough, they saw the bright spot representing Zhou Yuan fleeing from the mini domain.
Lu Xuangang's gaze flashed, and he suddenly commented: "Zhao Mushen's attack is chasing him..."
The other Law Domain experts nodded. Likewise, they had sensed an extremely powerful attack chasing Zhou Yuan. Evidently, it was from Zhao Mushen.
Chi Jing looked closely.
Everyone wanted to know if Zhou Yuan could neutralize Zhao Mushen's attack.
Under the gaze of the Law Domain experts, Zhou Yuan escaped to another mini domain before turning around to face the pursuing attack.
Zhou Yuan's bright spot flickered violently.
A dozen breaths later, the dot dimmed a bit, but continued to shine...
He had neutralized Zhao Mushen's killer move!
The numerous Law Domain stage experts present raised their eyebrows slightly. The result was a bit unexpected.
Zhou Yuan seemed to have some ability.
To think that someone who had only unlocked eight Divine Dwellings could exchange a blow with the king of the Divine Dwelling stage, Zhao Mushen…
The terrifying undulations around Chi Jing gradually calmed down. Her almost vertical eyebrows also returned to normal as the Domain of Law behind her dissipated.
She cast an indifferent glance at Zhao Xiansun. Although he still maintained his smiling appearance, Chi Jing could feel the hidden rage in his eyes.
“Zhao Xiansun, remember these despicable actions of yours. “If there is an opportunity in the future, the Tianyuan Region will make you pay.”
Chi Jing's icy voice rang out as his figure descended, reaching the side of the compass once again.
The other Law Domain experts inwardly shook their heads as they looked at Zhao Xiansun. He had really been humiliated this time. His arduous efforts ultimately bore no fruit.
He was actually trying to steal a chicken only to end up losing the rice to feed it. Zhao Xiansun had lost face for no reason.
Zhao Xiansun also withdrew his Domain of Law and silently returned to his position. However, his fists involuntarily clenched inside his sleeves.
Zhao Mushen, what the hell are you doing? I can't believe you let that garbage slip! an angry roar echoed in his heart.
In the end, he held back his anger. It was good to have failed this time. He believed that Zhao Mushen would have many opportunities in the future. Zhou Yuan might have been able to escape like a pitiful dog that had lost its home, but he wouldn't be so lucky next time.
The little bastard is going to die sooner or later, anyway!
