Chapter 989 Zhao Mushen eliminated
A thousand feet long deep mark had cut across the plain, like a scar on a beautiful jade face.
The entire world became completely silent.
Countless dumbfounded gazes stared at the end of the deep scar, where Zhao Mushen lay covered in blood and barely breathing. An incomparably miserable look had replaced the heroic spirit that he had radiated when he was about to break through to the Heavenly Sun stage.
No one had thought that Zhao Mushen's advance would end in such a way: that Zhou Yuan would kick his face and interrupt his advance.
Without a doubt, Zhou Yuan's kick also ended the final battle of the tournament.
As people looked at Zhou Yuan standing in the same place as before, many eyes gradually filled with astonishment. Even Wang Xi and the others had incomparably complex expressions, but there was also a look of undeniable fear in their eyes.
They knew that the former king of the Hunyuan Heaven Divine Dwelling had been defeated and would be replaced by a new legend of the Divine Dwelling.
This type of replacement did not involve any scheme at all. No one would dare question Zhou Yuan's power after he had broken through the limit of the Divine Dwelling stage. The fact that he had shattered the Genesis Qi light shield that combined the Genesis Qi of Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao, and Su Youwei was enough to explain everything.
The current Zhou Yuan could probably beat Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao, and Su Youwei together.
In the quiet world, the void around Zhao Mushen's motionless body suddenly began to undulate and a vortex swallowed his body.
Countless people were speechless again because this indicated that Zhao Mushen was so seriously injured that he activated the mark within his body. He had formed a spatial vortex to expel him from the Fallen Abyss. In other words, it had been eliminated.
Zhao Yuan had eliminated Zhao Mushen, who was thought to have the best chance of winning.
Countless people trembled at the result. Who would have thought that Zhao Mushen, who had dominated Hunyuan Heaven for so many years, would fail?
It was impossible.
Everyone on the Wanzu Region side fell into a trance state, particularly Liu Qingshu. His expression changed indefinitely and his voice became sharp. "How is this possible!? How could my big brother lose? It's not fair! Zhou Yuan didn't wait for my big brother to complete his breakthrough!"
The other members of the Wanzu Region, however, were unable to echo what she said because they could feel the contempt of the members of the other regions.
A failure was a failure, but Liu Qiushui still had to make excuses.
Why should Zhou Yuan wait for Zhao Mushen to break through? Do you think the nine regions tournament is a game for children? It's normal to even lose your life here!
If he could end the battle with one kick, why would he want more trouble? That's not self-confidence, that's stupidity!
Liu Qingshu closed his mouth amidst the many disdainful gazes and clenched his hands and teeth. She couldn't accept this result.
I could accept Zhao Mushen losing to Wu Yao or Su Youwei, but not to the despicable Zhou Yuan!
Ultimately, this was because he had always felt superior to Zhou Yuan. After all, she was one of the top celestial prides of the Wanzu region and had a powerful older brother. What about Zhou Yuan? He came from the run-down Tianyuan region and had no outstanding achievements in the past.
These were the factors that made Liu Qingshu despise Zhou Yuan, but he had never thought that the person he despised would crush the pride in his heart. But no matter how difficult it may be for her to accept it, the truth was in front of her and she had no choice but to face it.
In the distance, Yuan Kun caressed his plump face, looking a little dumbfounded. He then turned to say to Jiu Gong, “The Hunyuan Heaven Divine Dwelling stage is going to change again.”
She knew that Jiu Gong thought extremely highly of Zhao Mushen, and the outcome of the battle probably surprised her greatly.
Jiu Gong's expression was indeed very complicated. As a reviewer of the Divine Dwelling List, she had witnessed Zhou Yuan accomplish one amazing feat after another. She witnessed his rise to fame as a nobody in Hunyuan Heaven.
Zhou Yuan had even broken through the limit of the Divine Dwelling stage and overwhelmingly defeated Zhao Mushen.
From then on, no one would dare to look down on him.
“I'm very curious now. I wonder what big wave it will cause when I reach the Heavenly Sun stage,” Jiu Gong said in a low voice. Once the nine regions tournament was over, the major celestial prides of each region would most likely begin to break through. As they continued their fight at a higher level, the Heavenly Sun List, new blood would be welcomed into the Divine Dwelling List.
Most of the experts on the Heavenly Sun List were the top heavenly prides of the previous generations. They had seniority and dominated the list for years. If those on the Divine Dwelling List were junior level fresh blood from each region, the Heavenly Sun List was full of senior level fresh blood.
As for the people ranked on the Nascent Source List, they were the true top fighting power of each region. There was no list for the Law Mastery stage because anyone who entered the list was an authority from a region.
Yuan Kun nodded his head. “The sky-prideers on the Heavenly Sun List have always looked down on us and view a battle with us as a trivial matter. “It would be fun to see Zhou Yuan enter the Heavenly Sun stage and destroy its structure.”
He glanced at the top of the ancient statue and sighed, "But who would have expected this result?"
Then he smiled. “That's why I have good eyes and didn't have any conflict with Zhou Yuan. Instead, he had cooperated with him. Look how Xu Ming and Zhao Mushen were eliminated. "I realized that anyone who opposed him would not end well."
Jiu Gong rolled his eyes at his smug face.
Zhou Yuan looked at the direction Zhao Mushen disappeared. Zhao Mushen was indeed a very difficult enemy. If Zhou Yuan had not risked breaking the limit, the final outcome of the battle might have been completely different. But no matter how dangerous the process was, Zhou Yuan had won in the end.
“It seems that my Holy Dragon Blessing is superior to your Taotie Blessing,” Zhou Yuan muttered to himself. He smiled and turned around. With a flash, he appeared in front of Su Youwei.
"How are you? Are you okay?" he asked with a smile.
Su Youwei smiled happily at Zhou Yuan. "Congratulations, Your Highness, for winning first place in the nine regions tournament."
Zhao Mushen had been eliminated, and Su Youwei and Wu Yao's Genesis Qi were exhausted, which meant that the ancient stone statue belonged to Zhou Yuan.
Su Youwei was very happy from the bottom of her heart seeing Zhou Yuan so dazzling in Hunyuan Heaven. In his opinion, given Zhou Yuan's talent, he should have become the brightest star a long time ago and attracted everyone's attention and adoration.
He had always felt this way about Zhou Yuan, but other people didn't believe in him. However, from then on, no one would dare to question Zhou Yuan's ability again.
“I accidentally took your title of having the strongest Genesis Qi base among all the Divine Dwelling experts,” Zhou Yuan joked.
Su Youwei moved her red lips and smiled softly. Then, he tilted his head to the side and said, “This is a trivial matter. You have another problem to deal with now.”
Zhou Yuan followed her gaze and saw Wu Yao standing calmly in a bright red dress.
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment before walking towards Wu Yao.
He looked at the dazzling and fierce face before him and said indifferently: "Wu Yao, I came to take back what belongs to me."
