Chapter 1091 Mysterious Treasure
When Zhou Yuan suddenly erupted with full strength, Qin Lian was startled for a moment, but when she heard Zhou Yuan’s roar, she couldn’t help laughing. This guy already thinks the mysterious treasures are his.
Shouldn’t the golden flying rat king be their rightful owner? After all, it had lived here for many years.
Qin Lian could tell that the mysterious treasures were maturing under the ancestral qi vein’s nourishment and that the golden rat king hadn’t swallowed them yet because it was waiting for them to mature completely. Unfortunately for the rat king, who would have thought that Zhou Yuan, the demon star, would come?
While thoughts whirled in Qin Lian’s mind, Zhou Yuan, in the Great Flame Devil transformation, shot out. He appeared above the golden rat king as though he had teleported. The aura of the golden rat king, who had swallowed the mysterious treasure, was soaring drastically.
The golden rat king unleashed a fierce roar and grinned threateningly at Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan responded with an iron fist wrapped in lava. As his fist slammed out, the intense heat distorted s.p.a.ce, and two striking Heavenly Suns emerged behind him. His Genesis Qi foundation directly soared to 2.3 billion!
Zhou Yuan slammed his fist into the golden rat king’s head, causing lava to spew out like a volcanic eruption. The golden rat king screamed in anguish as it blasted into the ground, forming a deep crater.
The skin of the golden rat’s head was split, and its flesh was torn. Blood rapidly flowed down its head, but the rat king’s strength had obviously soared after it had swallowed the mysterious treasure. Thus, Zhou Yuan had failed to kill it with his fierce punch.
“You still want to fight?” Zhou Yuan sneered. His ghost-like figure sped down again, leaving behind many blurred shadows.
The golden rat king turned into a stream of golden light and swiftly evaded Zhou Yuan.
Inside the cave, one chased frantically while the other madly fled. Their constant berserk attacks turned the place upside down.
Qin Lian didn’t join the chase. Instead, she appeared between the stalact.i.tes and circulated her Genesis Qi to form a s.h.i.+eld to protect them from the battle’s shock waves. If they were damaged, both she and Zhou Yuan would be heartbroken.
Inside the smoke- and dust-filled cave, Zhou Yuan’s mighty demonic shadow descended from the sky. His feet, wrapped in mountainous power, crashed into the rat king’s back.
A deep hole split open in the ground and firmly trapped the rat king.
It struggled frantically, trying to escape, but Zhou Yuan frantically thrust out his fist again. The snow-white hair around his hand shone coldly like thorns.
The snow-white hairs instantly turned a heart-chilling jet-black color.
Zhou Yuan’s crimson eyes flashed with a cold, ruthless look, and his fist transformed into countless fist shadows and bombarded the rat king’s incomparably tough body.
The cave rumbled, and the ground crumbled. After a few minutes, the deafening booms gradually stopped.
Qin Lian peered down and watched the smoke and dust disperse and reveal a giant dark pit. In the depths of the pit, Zhou Yuan’s body had resumed its original appearance, and his demonic body had vanished. The ferocious golden rat king was crushed like mud beside his feet, its blood splattered across the deep pit.
Zhou Yuan looked a little helpless at the rat king’s miserable appearance. The rat king’s bodily strength was too tyrannical, and Zhou Yuan had no choice but to attack with full-strength. Otherwise, given the rat king’s tenacious nature, Zhou Yuan wouldn’t be able to kill it even after one day of fierce battle.
Zhou Yuan apologized without much sincerity, and then, with a wave of his hand, a chunk of the rat king’s flesh floated up. He crushed it to a pulp, and a mysterious s.h.i.+mmering treasure revealed itself.
It was a deep yellow crystal with nine eye-like holes. It radiated an indescribable feeling of mystery. From the nine-hole crystal, Zhou Yuan could feel an ancient aura identical to ancestral qi.
“Is this a mysterious treasure nourished by ancestral qi?” Zhou Yuan opened his hand and curiously studied the crystal. It was rumored that this kind of mysterious treasure was needed to refine Saint treasures. Thus, this object was incredibly rare and precious.
However, while Zhou Yuan examined the nine-hole crystal in his hand, snow-white hair broke out from his palm without his control, wrapped around the crystal, then vanished like lightning.
The sudden change stunned Zhou Yuan.
“Heavenly Yuan Brush?!”
He immediately looked inside his Divine Dwelling and saw the Heavenly Yuan Brush quietly suspended inside with its snow-white hair hanging down and twisting to form a sphere. Rays of light bloomed from the inside of the sphere.
It was the crystal.
Zhou Yuan could clearly feel the white hair instilling a bizarre force into the Heavenly Yuan Brush. Moreover, under that force, the Heavenly Yuan Brush’s mottled body seemed to become even more abstruse.
Even the eighth rune on the Heavenly Yuan Brush was releasing wisps of light.
“The Heavenly Yuan Brush can swallow these kinds of mysterious treasures to evolve itself?!” Zhou Yuan exclaimed. The Heavenly Yuan Brush’s power had already surpa.s.sed ordinary top-level Heavenly Genesis Weapons and could even be considered a Quasi-Saint Genesis Weapon. However, he understood there was still a huge gap between the Heavenly Yuan Brush and a true Saint Genesis Treasure.
But as the Heavenly Yuan Brush’s grade increased, its awakening and evolution had become increasingly difficult. But the mysterious treasure from Guyuan Heaven made Zhou Yuan see an opportunity.
As though it felt Zhou Yuan’s gaze, the Heavenly Yuan Brush vibrated and hummed.
Zhou Yuan understood its meaning—it wanted more ancestral qi treasure.
Zhou Yuan grinned. It seemed he would need to start working hard to support this little brat.
“Okay, okay, I’ll help you get more,” Zhou Yuan uttered helplessly, but he was still happy about it. After all, as the Heavenly Yuan Brush awakened and evolved, it would also improve his strength.
Zhou Yuan was about to withdraw from his Divine Dwellings. But at that moment, he stopped abruptly, and surprise flashed across his face. He had felt a strange fluctuation of energy within his body. It was just that this wave was extremely weak and could easily be overlooked.
Zhou Yuan, who was always very cautious, didn’t overlook it and instead began to interact with it. Under his sensing, the slight wave of energy indeed appeared again. His heart trembled, and large amounts of silver liquid suddenly gathered within his Divine Dwellings, gradually turning into a silver sphere in front of him.
The silver sphere was as smooth as a mirror, and its surface occasionally bloomed with faint ripples.
Zhou Yuan stared dazedly at the silver sphere.
Zhou Yuan’s expression changed drastically. He didn’t expect the faint wave to be from Silver Shadow! This had never happened before. It was the first time that the Silver Shadow had actively sent him a message. Of course, this was because Silver Shadow was a lower grade than the Heavenly Yuan Brush.
“Have you also developed a trace of spiritual intellect?” Zhou Yuan reached out curiously and held the silver sphere in his hand. It seems that, after nurturing it for so many years, he had developed a connection with Silver Shadow.
Silver Shadow’s rounded surface rippled, but its spiritual intellect was evidently inferior to the Heavenly Yuan Brush’s.
“What is it that you want?” Zhou Yuan asked.
There had to be a reason for Silver Shadow to suddenly produce a response.
Silver Shadow couldn’t clearly express its thoughts and could only make its surface ripple continuously.
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment, and suddenly understanding dawned on him. He peered at the Heavenly Yuan Brush not far away and said thoughtfully, “You also want ancestral qi treasure?”
That ancestral qi treasure was the only thing unusual in his Divine Dwelling.
Silver Shadow immediately trembled violently, and the ripples turned even more hurried.
Zhou Yuan smiled and quickly comforted, “Okay, I know, don’t worry, I won’t treat you badly.”
Zhou Yuan also had fond feelings towards Silver Shadow, which had followed him since he started his cultivation. It was unknown how many times he had relied on the Silver Shadow to help him reverse the tides.
However, as Zhou Yuan’s strength increased, he felt that Silver Shadow couldn’t keep up with him. But he felt that perhaps the ancestral qi treasure in Guyuan Heaven would provide an opportunity for Silver Shadow to evolve.
In the deep pit, Zhou Yuan opened his eyes, staring at his empty palm. He couldn’t help smiling bitterly.
It seems that I not only have to provide for one little brat but two…
