Chapter 953 Cooperation
A bonfire was burning in the mountains. A fat cow was skinned and cleaned, then skewered with a wooden stick. Yuan Kun held the stick with one hand and skillfully swung it over the fire.
He sprinkled some spices on it and an aroma instantly filled the air.
The ox was roasted until it was golden brown. Its grease dripped and hit the campfire, creating bursts of intense flames. Its aroma was delicious.
Yuan Kun looked very skilled, like a real chef.
Half an hour later, Yuan Kun nodded in satisfaction, tore off one of the pieces of steaming meat, and handed it to Zhou Yuan.
“Hey, try it. My cooking skills are unique in the Yushou Region.” Yuan Kun clearly sounded proud. It even seemed like he was more proud of his cooking skills than being ranked as one in the Yushou Region.
The corners of Zhou Yuan's mouth twitched, and then he stretched out his hand to take it. He saw Yuan Kun split the remaining fatty meat into two, one for himself to feast on, and threw the other to the Divine Earth Ox lying on the side.
The Divine Land Ox seemed to really enjoy it, and finished the meat even faster than Yuan Kun, leaving grease on his lips.
Zhou Yuan shook his head silently when he saw this strange scene, then lowered his head to slowly enjoy the greasy meat in his hand. Plus, the taste was really delicious. No wonder Yuan Kun was so proud of it.
When Zhou Yuan finished the beef leg, Yuan Kun patted his stomach, looking very satisfied.
"Brother Yuan Kun, let's talk about Alpha Spiritium." Once the roast beef banquet was over, Zhou Yuan returned to serious business.
Yuan Kun raised a stick to pick his teeth and smiled at Zhou Yuan. "Brother Zhou Yuan must have noticed the strange energy fluctuation when you entered this space, right?"
"There is indeed Alpha Spiritium in this space."
“You were a few days late. In fact, we have discovered the existence of Alfa Spiritium before."
Zhou Yuan asked in bewilderment: "So you got the Alpha Spiritium?"
Yuan Kun smiled stiffly. "If I have it, how would I ask you to cooperate with me?"
"Did anyone else get it before you?" Zhou Yuan's eyes flashed.
“In this space, in addition to our two teams, there is also a team from Zixiao Region and the team led by Jiu Gong. However, the Zixiao region team is not the main force,” Xuan Kun said helplessly.
"Jiu Gong of the Xuanji Region?" Zhou Yuan sounded a little surprised. I didn't expect that there would be another main force team besides them.
Although he was unfamiliar with Jiu Gong of the Xuanji Region, he had long heard of his name. After all, she was the reviewer of the Divine Dwelling List, and she was also the reason why he failed to make the top ten initially.
"You didn't fight with her?" Zhou Yuan laughed.
A faint blush spread across Yuan Kun's plump and pale face, and he immediately grumbled, “That little woman is very domineering. He first occupied the area containing the Alpha Spiritium and then established a Golden Meridian Light Boundary. I led a team of people to try to break through, but I gave up after half a day and tried to search for other Alpha Spiritium. But unfortunately, we couldn't find any."
Zhou Yuan whispered, “Brother Yuan Kun is saying that we should cooperate to break through the Jiu Gong Meridian Golden Light Boundary and seize the Alpha Spiritium?”
Yuan Kun nodded. "Otherwise, given that little woman's domineering personality, it would be difficult to get our hands on the Alpha Spiritium in this mini domain."
He looked at Zhou Yuan and said, “What? What is Brother Zhou Yuan thinking? I won't blame you if you don't want to offend Jiu Gong. “That little woman is so arrogant, but because of the special status of the Xuanji region, no one in Hunyuan Heaven will dare to mess with them.”
Zhou Yuan could tell that Yuan Kun was trying to encourage him to cooperate with him from his tone of voice. He smiled. “Brother Yuan Kun, you don't need to do this. We all came to the nine regions tournament for Alpha Spiritium. Jiu Gong may be well-known, but to me, it cannot be compared to Alpha Spiritium.”
"If you want to stop me from getting Alpha Spiritium, you're my enemy."
Yuan Kun's eyes lit up. “Your words are music to my ear. "So, when our teams finish collecting Spiritium in this mini domain, we will take action?"
Zhou Yuan naturally had no objections and nodded with a smile.
In fact, he was a little curious about the girl who was second only to Wu Yao and Su Youwei among the Divine Dwelling stage experts in the Hunyuan Heaven. But if he wanted to take all of the Alpha Spiritium, he would have to ask whether his Tianyuan brush agrees or not.
In front of Alfa Spiritium... what was a beauty?
Zhou Yuan and Yuan Kun issued an order, and the two teams collecting Spiritium strands rushed over. After half a day, they finished collecting all the Spiritium in the mountains.
Yuan Kun then led the way with his team, and Zhou Yuan followed closely with the Tianyuan Region team.
The two groups of people crossed the sky in a powerful manner, heading directly to the southwest.
The southwest area.
Compared to the rest of the space, the southwest area was very different. It was very cold and the icy wind felt like it could whip through your skin.
The snow-capped mountains were endless, and in the deepest place, numerous ice mountains rose.
At this moment, rays of dazzling golden light enveloped the tallest ice mountain, making it difficult for people to see through it. The flashing golden light was extremely mysterious, and even the icy wind could not penetrate it.
A whistle of wind sounded from the distance.
A large number of black shadows pierced through the air and landed outside the ice mountain glowing with golden light.
Fierce and imposing.
It was Yuan Kun and Zhou Yuan.
"It is this?" Zhou Yuan's eyes flickered in surprise when he saw the ice mountain shrouded in golden light. In his eyes, it was not golden light but countless Genesis Runes.
The limit was quite strange because it was a combination of Genesis Rune and Genesis Qi.
“I have long heard that the Xuanji Region's Genesis Rune mastery is second only to the Shengwen Region. Now that I have seen it, it is a well-deserved reputation.” Zhou Yuan marveled.
Yuan Kun stroked his greasy face and said in an irritated tone, “If it were a real fight with spears and swords, I wouldn't be afraid of Jiu Gong. But after she set this boundary, there was nothing I could do."
Zhou Yuan nodded. “Get someone to send a message. Let's try a peaceful method before resorting to force. "Otherwise people would say we are bullying a woman."
Yuan Kun nodded and ordered someone to send the message.
When Zhou Yuan, Yuan Kun and their teams arrived, many people within the ice mountain became aware of their presence.
One of them scanned them and chuckled disdainfully: “I was wondering who it was. "He turned out to be the top pavilion master of the Tianyuan region."
This person was the captain of the Zixiao region team, Xue Jingtao.
Behind Xue Jingtao was a female disciple. After some hesitation, he said, “Zhou Yuan and Senior Sister Su Youwei know each other. “We shouldn’t make things difficult for him, right?”
Xue Jingtao frowned. “You're thinking too much. How would Junior Sister Su Youwei know a peasant like him? Even if they know each other, their friendship wouldn't be as deep as you think.”
“Moreover, everyone in the nine regions tournaments are enemies. Since we met, how can we restrain ourselves?”
“Besides, we are not the ones in charge. It’s Miss Jiu Gong.”
He waved his hand dismissively and did not let the disciple say anything else. "I will inform Miss Jiu Gong and see what she decides."
With that, he disappeared in the blink of an eye.
On the top of the ice mountain, Xue Jingtao's figure appeared, looking ahead, where a beautiful woman frowned. She was dressed in a loose robe, but that couldn't hide her curvy figure.
In truth, she was not in the least bit inferior to Wu Yao and Su Youwei based on appearance alone. Each one had their strengths. If Wu Yao was strong and tough, then Su Youwei was gentle and tenacious, and Jiu Gong was coldly arrogant, which was charming to some people.
When Xue Jingtao faced a woman like her, his heart inevitably stirred, but he did not dare to show it. He saluted with a cupped fist and reported, “Miss Jiu Gong, Yuan Kun is back and brought a team to help you.”
“They sent a message to tell Miss Jiu Gong to open the Golden Light Boundary and share the Alpha Spiritium.”
Jiu Gong raised his thin and long eyebrows. "Who is the helper he brought?"
"Zhou Yuan of Tianyuan Region."
"Oh? So it's him."
A smile broke out on Jiu Gong's handsome face. “Has Yuan Kun gone crazy? Do you think you can break my Golden Meridian Light Boundary with the help of someone ranked ninth on the Divine Dwelling List?”
He bowed his head and said after a thought, “Send a message back that if they want to share the Alpha Spiritium, they should talk to me once they break through the Golden Meridian Light Boundary. If they don't have the capacity, tell them to leave..."
If Yuan Kun had found help from the main force of one of the other regions, he might have considered their request, but he had brought the main pavilion master from the Tianyuan region.
Seeing Xue Jingtao leave, he turned his gaze to the mountain in the distance and murmured, "I would like to see what ability you have to make Su Youwei favor you like this."
