Chapter 999 Summoning Order
The atmosphere in the great hall was somewhat quiet, and for a moment, even Sect Master Xuan Kun, Bai Ye, and Bian Chang were unable to say a word. Looking at Zhou Yuan's face, they couldn't help but the corners of their mouths twitched.
They had never thought that a youth of the Divine Dwelling stage would be on the same level as them.
So, what kind of attitude should they face Zhou Yuan with?
But how could they ignore the strength of Zhou Yuan's Divine Dwelling stage?
Sect Master Xuan Kun could casually scold Zhou Yuan in the past, but what about now?
Therefore, when facing such a situation, even three Law Domain experts felt extremely uncomfortable. At the same time, they couldn't help but criticize Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan's decision back then... It was definitely too hasty.
While the three great elders were conflicted and silent, Zhou Yuan said with a slight smile: "Great elders, although my master has set the rules back then, I don't need the status of great elder, so you don't have to announce that "There is a sixth great elder in the Tianyuan region."
The stiff faces of Yuan Kun and the others visibly relaxed when they heard Zhou Yuan's words. Evidently, their worries were eased.
“The reason we want to announce this matter now is that the Tianyuan Region is about to face a major war, and my appearance will reassure many people that Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan has not died. It's just a temporary inconvenience for him to appear in Hunyuan Heaven." Zhou Yuan slowly explained to the three of them, "In this way, people with different intentions should be deterred and will not dare to make trouble during this period of time."
Xuan Kun and the others exchanged glances and nodded gently at the end.
The clan leader, Bai Ye, smiled. “Zhou Yuan…little friend is right, this news can put many people at ease.”
Evidently, she was a little confused about how to address Zhou Yuan. After all, although Zhou Yuan was the main pavilion master, he didn't attach much importance to it. But he was an official disciple of Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan, which changed everything.
Strictly speaking, their status was equal.
If Zhou Yuan insisted on becoming the Sixth Grand Elder, they didn't have much reason to stop him.
Sect Master Xuan Kun cleared his throat and finally said with some difficulty: “No wonder you are so outstanding. It is understandable that you can suppress the heavenly prides of my Heavenly Spirit Sect. "There's no shame in them losing."
He had said it stiffly, but his attitude was evidently much better than before. He clearly wanted to protect his dignity. After all, even Law Domain experts had to accept the harsh reality!
Patriarch Bian Chang also gradually accepted the truth. He then asked, "Little friend Zhou Yuan, when will the supreme sovereign return?"
Everyone looked at Zhou Yuan hopefully. As long as Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan returned, all problems would be resolved.
Zhou Yuan murmured: “My master cannot return for the time being. The matter you are engaged in involves many things, but there is one thing that is certain: nothing has happened to my master."
Sect Master Xuan Kun and the others nodded. Although disappointed, the most important thing was that they received the news that their supreme sovereign was fine.
Patriarch Bian Chang's crystalline eyes lit up, causing the void to vibrate. “It is really great to receive news about the supreme sovereign at this time. Great Elder Chi Jing, our Tianyuan region has to fight with all our strength in this war. Since those dogs from the Wanzu region dared to bite anyone, we should let them know what it feels like to have their muscles and bones broken!"
Killing intent surged from him as he spoke.
Sect Master Xuan Kun said indifferently, “Speaking of this, it has been a while since a Hunyuan Heaven Law Domain expert fell.”
His tone and words sounded a little domineering, and it felt like he looked down on the Law Domain experts of the five major forces. But as a veteran Law Domain expert and someone who had received guidance from Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan in the past, he indeed had the qualification to do so.
Patriarch Bai Ye nodded with a smile.
The Mu Ni clan leader nodded gracefully. “When Hong Jiuyuan was injured back then, he begged me to treat him. "If I had known about today, I would have just left him with his hands and feet."
Zhou Yuan smiled inwardly, watching several great elders express their opinions. He could tell that they did not seem to have a good opinion of the Law Domain experts from the other top forces. At the very least, the five Law Domain experts present would not fear them.
Chi Jing nodded and they finally came to a conclusion.
“In the next few days, in addition to the prefecture lords and sect masters, all Divine Dwelling experts, Heavenly Sun experts, and Rising Source experts must gather at Tianyuan Utopia, ready for battle! "
Shortly after Chi Jing returned to the Tianyuan utopia, the news that the five major forces declared war on the Tianyuan region soon spread throughout the 900 prefectures.
The entire Tianyuan region was shaken.
No one thought that someone would dare to launch a war against one of the nine regions!
This caused countless people in the Tianyuan region to feel a strong surge of anger within them. After all, as citizens of the Tianyuan Region, they were proud to be part of the nine regions, and the action of the five major forces was undoubtedly similar to that of a wolf provoking a tiger!
However, there were several people concerned. They were considered to have sharper senses and could sense that the sudden war felt like a conspiracy.
The five major forces were acting on behalf of the Wanzu Region!
The Wanzu Region had the protection of the Supreme Sovereign Wan Zu, but the Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan had been missing for many years and was not known to be alive. Many people couldn't help but worry why the five major forces would want to provoke the Tianyuan region. Could it be that they were sure that Supreme Sovereign Cang Yuan would not be able to return?
Therefore, in the tense atmosphere of the Tianyuan region, while countless people were enraged by the provocation of the five major forces and clamoring for revenge, a great deal of panic and uncomfortable emotions were secretly surging.
In just a few days, the defense of the Tianyuan region became much stronger and all the teleportation formations were temporarily closed. At the same time, a large number of shadow guards from the Tianyuan Region flew into the Tianyuan Utopia, eliminating the spies that the five major forces had placed in the city.
Chi Jing and the others were aware of the existence of those spies. It was just that they were not a threat, so they were allowed to live during this period of peace.
But a war was about to break out, and the five major forces had arrived directly on the enemy list of the Tianyuan region. Therefore, they already had to show mercy to those spies.
So, during the next few days, violent Genesis Qi often surged out from various areas of Tianyuan Utopia, but fortunately, it was suppressed very quickly.
The spies obviously did not have the ability to escape at the Tianyuan Region headquarters.
Furthermore, during those days, more and more experts of the Divine Dwelling stage, Heavenly Sun stage, and Nascent Source stage rushed to Tianyuan Utopia from various places, causing Tianyuan Utopia to be overcrowded. The smell of war and fire filled the entire world.
On an empty island in the northwest of Tianyuan Utopia.
There was only one huge square on the island, where endless crowds filled the square from one side to the other. The aura this crowd emitted was so great that it made people's scalps numb.
Furthermore, powerful Genesis Qi wandered around each person. Everyone's strength was at least Divine Dwelling stage or higher!
Summoned by Chi Jing, experts from all clans, sects, and forces that met the requirements were sent to Tianyuan Utopia.
In the southwest corner of the square.
The people of the Four Pavilions were gathered.
Almost all of the Four Pavilions possessed the strength of the Divine Dwelling stage and were young generation elites. Therefore, when everyone gathered together, the momentum and imposing aura they exuded were not weak in the slightest.
Of course, more importantly, the slender figure standing in front not only attracted shocked glances from the Divine Dwelling experts. Even the Heavenly Sun stage experts studied it curiously.
Naturally, it was Zhou Yuan.
He received a lot of attention because he defeated Zhao Mushen and won first place in the nine regions tournament. It should be said that since the Tianyuan Region was established, the best result achieved was only third place, and they had never won first place in the nine regions tournament.
The Tianyuan Region had never achieved this honor even during its strongest time, but it achieved it when it was at its weakest. How could others not find it amazing?
Zhou Yuan seemed unconcerned by the countless astonished gazes, while Yi Qiushui and Ye Bingling had proud expressions on their faces.
“The powers summoned are too great. “Many Heavenly Pride experts have appeared.” Mu Liu couldn't help but marvel when he saw the sea of people in the square.
Most of the people in the plaza were once part of the Four Pavilions, and they were also the most influential figures. After leaving the Four Pavilions, they were appointed to various positions in the Tianyuan Region and were rarely seen after that. But they had all been summoned to the Tianyuan region.
Mu Liu smiled at Zhou Yuan and joked, “But no matter how powerful they are, they cannot compare to you, the main pavilion master who has made history. Isn't that right, Lu Xiao?"
Lu Xiao's face twitched stiffly and he did not respond to Mu Liu, but continued to scan the surroundings, looking a little nervous.
"What are you doing?" Han Yuan couldn't help but ask.
He found that Lu Xiao's state was a little strange, as if he was in a state of anxiety. It wasn't just him; The Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples in the Four Pavilions also backed away in fear.
Zhou Yuan gave them a puzzled look.
Seeing Zhou Yuan's inquisitive gaze, Lu Xiao quietly uttered, "Grand Elder Chi Jing has issued a summoning order, which means that all experts of the Divine Dwelling stage, Heavenly Sun stage, and Nascent Source stage have to come today..."
He swallowed a mouthful of saliva before continuing, “In other words… Senior Sister Qin Lian will also appear.”
When he spoke the name, Zhou Yuan saw the Heavenly Spirit Sect disciples shiver silently, as if the temperature had dropped by several degrees.
Mu Liu and Han Yuan's faces also changed. Both of them inhaled sharply and cast a sympathetic look at Lu Xiao. "Hurry up and apply to enter closed-door cultivation."
Lu Xiao was tempted.
Zhou Yuan shook his head and pointed to the crowd that was moving aside in seconds to let a group of people pass. The group was led by an extremely imposing and tall figure, and where she passed, even the Heavenly Sun experts retreated one after another, their expressions changing.
"I don't know the details, but I'm afraid it's too late."
