Chapter 991 Supreme Sovereign
As Wu Yao collapsed and Zhou Yuan grabbed her shoulders, the Holy Dragon Blessing rose from her body, turned into a wisp of blue-colored smoke, and spiraled into the mouth of the giant Dragon silhouette.
Seeing the last wisp of the Holy Dragon Blessing approaching, Zhou Yuan unhesitatingly controlled the giant Dragon's silhouette to prepare to swallow it.
It was something that belonged to him, and he was simply taking it back.
Even if Wu Yao paid for it with her life, Zhou Yuan did not feel sorry for her. As she had said, this was perhaps her destiny.
Let me end this now.
The Dragon silhouette unleashed a deafening roar and attempted to swallow the last strand of the Holy Dragon Blessing in one bite. But just as the last piece of the Holy Dragon Blessing was about to be eaten, Zhou Yuan felt the entire world freeze. Even the Genesis Qi of the world had gone still.
The Dragon silhouette kept its mouth wide open, but no matter how it tried, it couldn't swallow the last strand. It was as if an indescribable force was obstructing him.
It must be said that the giant Dragon's silhouette was not formed from Genesis Qi, but was the incarnation of a type of Blessing. It was barely noticeable, which meant that ordinary forces could not harm it. However, at that moment, he was like a mosquito in amber and was under control.
Zhou Yuan's expression changed dramatically. There was clearly a very terrifying external force intervening. Even Law Domain experts were unable to intervene in what is happening within the Fallen Abyss, meaning that the strength of the person intervening exceeded the Law Domain stage.
A Saint expert!
A supreme sovereign!
The supreme sovereign of the Wushen region!
Zhou Yuan's face darkened because the supreme sovereign's action had undoubtedly broken the rules of the nine regions tournament. But when facing an existence at the Saint level, he couldn't explode with anger because he knew it would be meaningless.
He looked towards the silhouette of the solidified Dragon and saw the last wisp of the Holy Dragon Blessing that Wu Yao forced to slowly descend and return to Wu Yao's body as if some kind of force controlled it.
Zhou Yuan looked at the scene expressionlessly and did not try to take it back. He knew that under the watchful eye of a Supreme Sovereign, he was as weak as an ant, and there was no way he could bear the consequences that might result from provoking the Supreme Sovereign.
“Zhou Yuan, you have already won. Do you need to completely remove the Holy Dragon Blessing?”
A majestic and indescribable voice rang in Zhou Yuan's mind. Zhou Yuan was silent for a moment, then said, “Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen?”
The voice did not respond.
“I believe Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen also knows the origin of the Holy Dragon Blessing,” Zhou Yuan said. "When Wu Yao's father took away the Holy Dragon Blessing from me, he also didn't care if I died or not."
Supreme Wu Shen’s voice sounded again, “Now is not the best time to remove the Holy Dragon Blessing on Wu Yao’s body. I actually broke the rules by intervening, but I won't take advantage of you. If you listen and don't remove the last of the Holy Dragon Blessing on Wu Yao, I will help you with one thing."
Zhou Yuan wrinkled his eyebrows. 'Help me with one thing. What can he do for me?'
“I will prevent Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu from capturing you,” said Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen.
Zhou Yuan's pupils shrank rapidly. “Why am I scared of Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen? I am just a small Divine Dwelling expert , so why would Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu have to deal with me personally?”
“Haha, little one, do you really think you can hide from Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu? “Does Cang Yuan really think that a little ant he sent to Hunyuan Heaven could escape Wan Zu’s eyes?”
Zhou Yuan's face changed drastically. Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu was aware of his true identity. Although he had guessed this from the fact that Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu ordered Zhao Mushen to capture him, Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen finally confirmed his speculation.
Zhou Yuan felt his scalp go numb. After all, it was not good to be watched by one of the supreme sovereigns. Furthermore, his master was not in Hunyuan Heaven and probably could not save him in time.
“In any case, he is a supreme sovereign with transcendent status. How could he stoop to deal with a small Divine Dwelling expert?” Zhou Yuan said bitterly.
“In fact, no one cares about a small Divine Dwelling expert, but there is something big involving you, and that is enough for Wan Zu to take action.” Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen's indifferent voice echoed in Zhou Yuan's mind. "What do you say? Are you interested in my proposal? It is no small matter for a supreme sovereign to help you."
Zhou Yuan's expression changed again, and he finally asked after pondering for a moment: "Will you ever let me take back the last of the Holy Dragon Blessing that belongs to me?"
"When the time is right, you will get it back." Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen's voice sounded ethereal.
Zhou Yuan narrowed his eyes. If he were alone, he would not fear Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu because in the worst case scenario, he would die. But he couldn't die or be captured because he had more important things to do, and that was to wake up Yaoyao.
To achieve his goal, he could abandon the Holy Dragon Blessing for the moment, although the Blessing was important.
Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen was only taking advantage of the fact that Zhou Yuan's supporter Cang Yuan was not around to do anything. But Zhou Yuan believed that Cang Yuan would return to Hunyuan Heaven sooner or later, and at that time, he would not have to worry about Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen intervening again.
He no longer hesitated and nodded. "I agree."
Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen smiled slightly. He did not need to make a solemn promise because his identity as one of the supreme sovereigns was already enough.
The force that froze the world suddenly disappeared and the silent Genesis Qi flowed once again.
"Your Highness!" Su Youwei immediately came to Zhou Yuan's side, her expression serious. Evidently, he was aware of the situation.
Zhou Yuan shook his head, signaling that there was nothing to worry about. Then, with the wave of his sleeve, the silhouette of the giant Dragon circling in the air turned into nothingness and disappeared completely.
Wu Yao, who was resting his cheeks on Zhou Yuan's shoulder, suddenly slowly opened his eyes.
He straightened his body immediately and quickly took two steps back.
The expression on his beautiful face changed drastically, especially when he felt the Holy Dragon Blessing on his body. He bit his red lips and raised his head to look at the void above, saying in his heart, 'Why did Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen have to intervene? If you win, you are the king; If you lose, you are nothing, and I clearly lost. There was no need for the supreme sovereign to interfere .'
Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen’s voice rang in his mind again, sounding a little helpless, “Wu Yao, don’t worry too much about a momentary success or failure. The Divine Dwelling stage is just an insignificant obstacle on his cultivation path. The real battle is in the future."
Wu Yao stubbornly bit her red lips. She didn't like the result because wouldn't that make Zhou Yuan think she was a sore loser?
“Wu Yao, you are not inferior to Zhou Yuan in any way. Don't doubt yourself because of a loss. Remember what I told you before, you have possessed the Holy Dragon Blessing for so many years, but it does not belong to you nor is it suitable for you. You should look for what belongs to you."
Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen's voice was weak and soon dissipated.
“The python and the sparrow swallowed the Dragon. But how can an ordinary sparrow swallow a Dragon? Is it really inferior to the Dragon?"
