Chapter 1093 Toxic
The moment the surging yellow dragon enveloped his body, Zhou Yuan could feel his Divine Dwellings shake violently. Even the two Heavenly Sun hanging high above his Divine Dwellings released rippling waves of desire.
Zhou Yuan folded his hands together, and wisps of platinum dragon qi spiraled up from his body, forming a platinum dragon head where his head was.
The dragon opened its mouth wide and sharply inhaled.
As a result, the numerous strands of ancestral qi were forcibly absorbed, and they madly poured into Zhou Yuan’s body. The absorption was much faster than everyone else’s, including Qin Lian’s.
The tremendous influx of mighty ancestral qi immediately caused huge changes within Zhou Yuan’s body. The first was his Genesis Qi. As his Genesis Qi fused with the strands of ancestral qi, it expanded and grew more vigorous at an astonis.h.i.+ng speed.
A stream of vigorous Genesis Qi pulsed through every meridian in Zhou Yuan’s body and brought him tremendous strength. Then, the strengthened Genesis Qi eventually flowed into his Divine Dwelling and poured into his two Heavenly Suns.
The two gla.s.s Heavenly Suns gradually grew more dazzling, and the waves of Genesis Qi radiating from them were continuously strengthened.
Upon a careful look, one would even notice that runes were extending from the four claws that covered the gla.s.s sky suns…a sign that the fifth claw was being refined!
This scene made Zhou Yuan indescribably happy. As expected, his senior brother was right. The ancestral qi in Guyuan Heaven could indeed gradually refine the Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun. But without enough ancestral qi, Zhou Yuan had a feeling the legendary Nine-Claw Heavenly Sun might not appear!
Thus, he even more frantically absorbed ancestral qi!
As increasing amounts of ancestral qi poured into his body, Zhou Yuan suddenly felt a special aura spreading inside him. That feeling was as though the aroma of a pure and sacred incense was drifting within his body. It gave him a sensation of sudden enlightenment.
The aura entranced Zhou Yuan’s mind, and at a certain moment, he seemingly opened his eyes.
He found that he was on a tall mountain peak with endless clouds and mist hovering around.
In the midst of the billowing clouds and mists, a figure emerged. The figure was identical to him. The figure flashed, and wings stretched out, absorbing the Genesis Qi between heaven and earth to strengthen itself.
Zhou Yuan stared at the figure and was stunned for a moment. He recognized that it was the Omega Saint Spirit Art!
At the same time, another figure of Zhou Yuan appeared in the clouds and mist around him. It suddenly roared skywards, and its body rapidly swelled. The incomparably tough body exuded an astonis.h.i.+ng power.
Mythic Saint Body!
Understanding dawned on him. And to confirm his understanding, figure after figure appeared among the clouds, each performing a different Genesis art.
Sword qi whistled as an incomparably fierce sword shadow tore apart the world—the Devil Sweeping Sword Orb!
A lightning prison descended, and an incomparably fierce and overbearing clap of thunder roared—the Lightning Prison Art!
A greenish-yellow qi turned into marrow fluid and dripped down…
These were the seven Cangxuan arts that Zhou Yuan had cultivated!
Staring at the multiple figures performing the seven arts, Zhou Yuan felt his speculations become stronger. He knew that this might be a sign that the seven Cangxuan arts were about to merge.
He had waited for years; was this finally the moment?
When each of the seven Cangxuan arts was performed to its peak state, the seven figures suddenly shot out and collided like streams of light. At that moment, the clouds and mist surged frantically and twisted into a tremendous vortex. Little by little, the rays of light gathered at the center.
Zhou Yuan stared at the center of the vortex, curious to know what would appear from the integration of the seven Cangxuan arts!
Under his intense gaze, a blurry shadow finally formed at the center of the vortex, which seemed to be the outline of a certain object…
But just when Zhou Yuan squinted his eyes to look more closely, he suddenly felt the incense-like smell completely dissipate, and the entire sea of clouds rapidly melted. Everything in front of him vanished into thin air.
Zhou Yuan opened his eyes and couldn’t help cursing out loud.
He disappointedly raised his head, only to see the last ancestral qi pa.s.s through him and drill into the spatial channel opened up by the altar.
Evidently, the previous enlightenment was interrupted because all the ancestral qi had left.
Fortunately, the seven arts had shown signs of integration, and with enough ancestral qi, the seven arts would no doubt complete their fusion.
“I will need a lot more ancestral qi,” Zhou Yuan speculated. But no matter how much was needed, he would definitely meet the requirement because he felt that he would be very satisfied with the integration of the seven Cangxuan arts.
While Zhou Yuan was still a little dejected, the Tianyuan Region’s Heavenly Sun experts were finally awakened. They immediately felt the changes within their bodies. The next moment, countless cheers of joy resounded like thunder and quaked the entire mountain range.
Their strengths had evidently rocketed.
Zhou Yuan stretched his back and similarly sensed the changes with his body. Then, he couldn’t help raising his brows.
“My Genesis Qi foundation has increased by…20 million?!”
Facing this kind of increase, even Zhou Yuan, who was always calm and composed, was a little dazed. Generally speaking, it would take a long period to gain 20 million Genesis Qi stars if one were to cultivate normally in Hunyuan Heaven, even with gla.s.s Heavenly Suns. More importantly, this growth was after breaking the upper limit.
Zhou Yuan hadn’t reached the Heavenly Sun stage’s limit. He only needed to continue to raise his strength if he wanted to increase his Genesis Qi foundation. But many people in the advanced Heavenly Sun stage had reached their limit, and to further increase their foundation required a lot of effort and resources, even if it was an increase of a few thousand Genesis Qi stars.
But a short period in Guyuan Heaven had allowed them to obtain benefits that they could never imagine.
The ancestral qi was clearly terrifying!
At that moment, Zhou Yuan was itching to capture ten more ancestral qi veins to raise his Genesis Qi foundation by another few hundred million!
Zhou Yuan took a look at his Divine Dwellings and found that a part of the fifth dragon’s toe had formed.
If he were to come to Guyuan Heaven a few more times, his four-claw Heavenly Sun would likely transform into a five-claw Heavenly Sun!
“What a great opportunity and blessing…”
Zhou Yuan couldn’t help sighing emotionally. Whether it was the increase in his Genesis Qi foundation, the addition of dragon runes on his Heavenly Suns, or the divine enlightenment brought by the smell of burning incense, they could only come with luck, yet they had all appeared at the same time.
Zhou Yuan knew how happy everyone was, so he let them celebrate. Just as he stood up lazily, Qin Lian suddenly came over.
“How was it? How much did your Genesis Qi foundation increase?” Zhou Yuan asked with a smile.
“Around seven million,” Qin Lian replied, then bit her red lips, staring at Zhou Yuan with a strange and resentful gaze.
“What’s with your expression?” Zhou Yuan asked puzzledly.
Qin Lian gritted her teeth and uttered in a trembling voice, “Zhou Yuan, do you have some sort of infectious toxin?”
“What are you talking about?” Zhou Yuan sounded perplexed.
A Heavenly Sun emerged behind Qin Lian. She pointed to a spot on the sun. “Then why did such a thing suddenly appear on my Heavenly Sun? That is clearly something that only exists on your Heavenly Sun! What did you do to me?”
Zhou Yuan followed her gaze and couldn’t help but freeze for a moment. He repeatedly rubbed his eyes. He noticed a small mottled pattern on Qin Lian’s originally pure and flawless gla.s.s Heavenly Sun. That familiar mark was…a dragon rune?
Zhou Yuan distinctly remembered that there wasn’t such a dragon rune on Qin Lian’s Heavenly Sun before. In other words, her Heavenly Sun underwent a change after absorbing ancestral qi.
This wasn’t unbelievable. Zhuan Zhu had told him the Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun could either exist innately or be acquired. One with an innate Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun would see dragon runes appear while refining a Heavenly Sun. To acquire a Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun, however, one needed to encounter great opportunities and blessings after reaching the advanced Heavenly Sun stage, thus allowing their Heavenly Sun to change, possess a dragon rune and turn into a Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun.
However, since it was divided into innate and acquired power, there was a clear difference in strength. According to his senior brother, an acquired Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun would be close to its limit at the six-claw Heavenly Sun level, and it would be near impossible to reach nine claws.
But even so, a Dragon Claw Heavenly Sun had much greater potential than an ordinary gla.s.s Heavenly Sun. After all, it was considered a legendary Heavenly Sun…
So, Zhou Yuan was stunned for a moment, then his face darkened as he looked at the woman who had failed to understand how blessed she was.
“You’re the toxic one, your whole family is toxic!”
