Chapter 992 The dust settles
Out of the Fallen Abyss.
The Law Domain experts present felt that the Genesis Qi had frozen under the starry sky. They immediately exchanged glances with each other, looking a little bewildered. It was obvious that no one thought that the matter would attract the attention of a supreme sovereign.
Some gazes fell on Jin Zhong of the Wushen Region. The person who intervened and protected the Holy Dragon Blessing in Wu Yao's body had to be the supreme sovereign of the Wushen Region.
There was no wave of emotion on Jin Zhong's face, and he made no comment on it.
Zhao "He even showed up in person to intervene and broke the rules."
He was unhappy because he expected Zhou Yuan to kill Wu Yao and cause the relationship between Tianyuan Region and Wushen Region to drop to a freezing point, but Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen came out and ruined it. How not to be disappointed and angry?
Jin Zhong responded indifferently: "If you have an opinion on this, you can go to the Wushen Region and talk to the supreme sovereign yourself."
Zhao Xiansun snorted coldly and cast a fierce gaze in Chi Jing's direction.
Chi Jing ignored him and continued to look at the light mirror. She slowly relaxed her hands clenched in her sleeves, relieved to see that Zhou Yuan had not taken away the last bit of the Holy Dragon Blessing. It was not yet the time for the Tianyuan Region and the Wushen Region to tear each other's faces. But he also understood the reason for Zhou Yuan's action. He was just taking back what belonged to him.
The current situation was the best for the Tianyuan region.
After all, Zhou Yuan had defeated Zhao Mushen and won first place in the nine regions tournament, which would inevitably attract countless attention. Some forces may even feel unconvinced and indignant. Therefore, the Tianyuan Region could be said to be in the eye of the storm, and it would be unwise to become an enemy of the Wushen Region at this time.
“Zhou Yuan, leave the last part of the Holy Dragon Blessing in Wu Yao's body for now. There will be another opportunity in the future,” Chi Jing said in his mind. When Cang Yuan returns and the Tianyuan Region rises again, as long as Zhou Yuan defeats Wu Yao again, even Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen would no longer be able to interfere.
He had to be tolerant and tolerant for now.
On the plain.
Zhou Yuan withdrew the Genesis Qi circulating in his body and glanced at Wu Yao without saying anything. He then turned and walked towards Su Youwei.
Wu Yao stared at his back and said through clenched teeth, “Zhou Yuan, you won this time. I promise you that I will not touch the Holy Dragon Blessing on you when you lose to me next time.”
In his opinion, Zhou Yuan had only stopped because of Supreme Sovereign Wu Shen's oppression. Wu Yao, who had always been competitive and feisty, couldn't accept this kind of behavior because she never liked using power to bully people. There was absolutely no need for the power of others to prove his worth.
Zhou Yuan said forcefully: “Lose to you? In fact, you are arrogant.”
Wu Yao took a deep breath and said, “This time you came in front of everyone, but you shouldn't be so confident. After the nine regions tournament is over, everyone will start arriving at the Heavenly Sun stage, and then you won’t have a big advantage over them.”
Zhou Yuan did not respond. Similarly, he would prepare to attack the Celestial Sun stage after harvesting all the Alpha Spiritium born from the remains deep within the statue. He did not believe that he would lose to Zhao Mushen, Wu Yao and the others by breaking through to the Heavenly Sun stage, given the fact that he had broken through the limit of the Divine Dwelling stage.
He approached Su Youwei and said, "You should stay here and recover your Genesis Qi first."
Su Youwei and Wu Yao had exhausted their Genesis Qi. In their current state, they could not compete with the others for the second stone statue.
Zhou Yuan whispered: "I would give you this place, but it is very important for me to win first place in the nine regions tournament..."
Su Youwei smiled. “You won with your own strength. “Why are you telling me this?”
She looked at Zhou Yuan with her beautiful eyes. Even if Zhou Yuan gave her this place, she would not accept it, but his gesture filled her heart with sweetness.
Zhou Yuan sat down, exhausted. His face was gray with fatigue, but the battle with Zhao Mushen had been truly exciting. Zhou Yuan was finally able to relax. "That guy... he was really difficult to deal with."
Su Youwei sat gracefully next to him. Absorbing the Universe Genesis Qi, he pursed his lips and said, “But Your Highness had the last laugh. After today, your name will cause a sensation in Hunyuan Heaven.”
Zhou Yuan scratched his head and said, “Aren't you going to change the way you address me? You are now the pearl of the Zixiao region, and my identity as the prince of the Great Zhou is a joke in Hunyuan Heaven!”
But Su Youwei, who was always kind and well-behaved, shook her head firmly, refusing to discuss the topic with Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan felt helpless. Although Su Youwei looked gentle and well-behaved, she was extremely stubborn and would not change what she had decided.
The two sat together, chatting happily. Their posture showed their closeness and trust in each other.
Wu Yao silently sat cross-legged not far away and restored his Genesis Qi. From time to time he passed his Phoenix eyes over them. His expression was indifferent, but a trace of envy flickered in the depths of his eyes. Since her mother died, she had been alone. Even after he had arrived in the Wushen Region, he had focused all his attention on cultivating.
Of course, I hoped I had real friends I could trust. However, the people she had met were not pure-minded, so she truly admired Su Youwei, who treated her with hostility just because of Zhou Yuan.
A cloudy look crossed Wu Yao's eyes. She stared into the distance and a kind face appeared in front of her. It was his mother. Her mother's eyes were still the same as when she was a child, full of warmth and care.
Wu Yao bowed his head and rare tears welled up in his eyes.
But that weak state of mind lasted only a few breaths, before she took a deep breath and suppressed it deep in her heart.
Wu Yao, you once said in front of Mother's grave that you would become the strongest person in the world. Only then mom wouldn't have to worry about you... so keep working hard.
Feeling the Genesis Qi gradually being restored in his body, Wu Yao stood up. Without saying anything to Zhou Yuan, he moved slightly and rose into the sky, his body a ray of light. He finally rushed out of the Genesis Qi light barrier.
A whistle of wind sounded behind her. He looked back to see Su Youwei gliding through the air.
Wu Yao said indifferently: “The second stone statue belongs to you. "I'm tired and I don't want to fight you anymore."
Su Youwei smiled. “Second or third place doesn't matter. Wu Yao, you are very amazing. I wanted to have a real fight with you today, but it's not possible anymore. I hope we have a chance in the future.”
Wu Yao was surprised because he deeply felt that Su Youwei's hostility seemed to have been greatly reduced. She nodded. "Just tell me when."
Su Youwei didn't say anything else. With a slight movement, he transformed into a beam of light and descended directly towards the third stone statue.
Wu Yao looked blankly at her beautiful figure, and after a moment, he landed on the second stone statue.
As the two took their positions, the situation under the starry sky gradually became clearer. Wang Xi no longer clung to the first stone statue because he knew that there was an existence more powerful than Zhao Mushen. Furthermore, Wu Yao and Su Youwei should not be provoked. In the end, he had no choice but to occupy the fourth stone statue, which was the same number as his ranking...
No, with Zhou Yuan's sudden increase in strength, Wang Xi's ranking will most likely drop to fifth in the future.
As expected, the fifth, sixth, and seventh stone statues were occupied by Li Tongshen, Jiu Gong, and Yuan Kun.
The Wanzu Region occupied the last two remaining stone statues because the elimination of Zhao Mushen had spurred the Wanzu Region teams into action. The prides of heaven attacked savagely, and after several rounds of fierce battle and paying a great price, they managed to secure the last two stone statues.
Of course, most of the teams from the other regions did not want to be caught in a fierce battle with the Wanzu region. The Wanzu region had already lost a lot of prestige, and if he became angry, they could do anything.
More importantly, after Zhao Mushen was eliminated, even if the celestial prides of the Wanzu region snatched the last two stone statues, they still couldn't shake the situation.
Basically, the result of the nine regions tournament had been determined.
Zhou Yuan descended onto the first stone statue. He raised his head towards the starry sky and exhaled a deep sigh, as if releasing all the exhaustion in his heart. But his eyes were full of emotion.
After more than a year of hard work, he had finally achieved his first goal of coming to Hunyuan Heaven: he won first place in the nine regions tournament!
Staring into the void, he could see Yaoyao's cold and beautiful face appearing in front of him. Her light eyes seemed to be talking to him, making his heart race.
Zhou Yuan stretched out his hand and squeezed it in the air.
Yaoyao, I won first place in the nine regions tournament... Maybe we will meet again very soon.
