Chapter 1101 Silver Shadow’s Transformation
In a s.p.a.cious and bright cave, two identical figures stood facing each other. The one difference between the two figures was that one had fair skin and the other had silver.
Zhou Yuan stared dazedly at the silver figure for a good while and eventually suppressed his astonishment. He felt an inseverable special connection with the silver figure in front of him.
He felt that the silver figure before his eyes was a part of him.
It was somewhat like…a doppelganger-like existence.
In the past, Silver Shadow could only form silver armor around Zhou Yuan to increase his strength, but it had now become an independent being.
To a certain extent, it was now a special Heavenly Sun expert who possessed a Genesis Qi foundation of 1 billion.
“Silver Shadow?” Zhou Yuan tried to call it.
The silver figure didn’t move and seemed extremely stiff, but its silver eyes rolled slightly and a flicker of spirituality flashed from his eyes.
“Move about.” Zhou Yuan gave another order.
Silver Shadow slowly lifted its feet and stiffly marched around the cave. At the same time, under Zhou Yuan’s order, it circulated its Genesis Qi and blasted a deep pit into the cave wall with it’s fists.
It seemed incapable of being tired, and had no sense of pain, life or death.
As Silver Silver sped up, it’s stiff movements were completely gone, and it’s body finally became as flexible as a human body.
Zhou Yuan continued to issue commands with great interest, and soon he found that Silver Shadow’s body was very powerful and possessed extremely powerful abilities of recovery. It even might not be weaker than Zhou Yuan.
However, Silver Shadow also had its flaws; it had no other means to fight.
This disappointed Zhou Yuan a little. Genesis Qi was only the basis of one’s combat strength, and to fully or even double the power of one’s Genesis Qi, one would need to rely on Genesis arts.
Without any Genesis Art, Silver Shadow’s combat strength would be quite worrying. It was similar to the ancient beasts in Guyuan Heaven that had only brute strength and no spiritual intellect.
It seemed Silver Shadow would be better to become battle armor and cover Zhou Yuan. At least in that way, it could increase Zhou Yuan’s strength.
While Zhou Yuan had that thought, he felt a faint wave of energy.
It came from Silver Shadow.
Zhou Yuan carefully sensed the information contained within the wave of energy. The information was very vague, but he still understood the vague meaning behind it…
“Teach what?” A puzzled expression came to Zhou Yuan’s face, then, a moment later, he looked at Silver Shadow in disbelief. “You mean teach you Genesis techniques?!”
Silver Shadow slowly came to stand in front of Zhou Yuan and stretched out its hands.
Zhou Yuan was silent for a moment. Then, he also reached out and touched Silver Shadow’s palm with his.
During that moment of contact, Zhou Yuan could feel his perception directly entering and spreading throughout Silver Shadow’s body. He could detect many mysteries within Silver Shadow’s body. He even noticed a Genesis Qi stamp in Silver Shadow’s body, which should be formed during the many years it was stored in Zhou Yuan’s body
The Genesis Qi stamp was so deep that it was unerasable.
This meant Zhou Yuan could completely destroy Silver Shadow from the inside to the outside with a single thought.
Then, Zhou Yuan felt a mysterious orifice somewhere in Silver Shadow’s body.
A light dawned on Zhou Yuan. That could hold a Genesis art.
Zhou Yuan pondered for a moment, and suddenly thought about the Great Flame Devil’s cultivation method in his heart.
At that moment, he could feel a stream of heat in his body pouring into Silver Shadow, and finally acc.u.mulated around the orifice.
An hour later.
The originally transparent hole turned crimson, like lava had interweaved and formed several ancient and complicated patterns.
Zhou Yuan opened his eyes, looking expectantly at Silver Shadow.
“Silver Shadow, activate…the Great Flame Devil!”
Silver Shadow drew back one step and closed its silver eyes. A second later, its eyes snapped wide and its silver pupils had turned crimson. Its silver body was streaked with lava-like red patterns and a red-hot and berserk wave erupted.
It was undoubtedly the Great Flame Devil!
Zhou Yuan drew a deep breath and his eyes lit up. So this was Silver Shadow’s most powerful ability!
It could swiftly cultivate the Genesis art Zhou Yuan had learned in an almost clone-like way!
In this way, it seemed no different to a human, but it was superior in that it was physically stronger and could recover rapidly.
And now it had learnt a body Genesis technique like the Great Flame Devil, based purely on bodily strength, Zhou Yuan felt even he might not be able to beat Silver Shadow.
The most terrifying thing was that Zhou Yuan found that Silver Shadow’s orifice could multiply as it evolved. When that happened, if Zhou Yuan pa.s.sed on more powerful Genesis arts he had cultivated, it was unimaginable what sort of astonis.h.i.+ng level its strength could reach.
In the future, Zhou Yuan could become two with a shake of his body. This would be hugely advantageous in battle.
Although a foundation of 1 billion was considered weak among many opponents that Zhou Yuan had faced before, it didn’t matter. As Zhou Yuan swallowed more ancestral qi treasures, Silver Shadow’s Genesis Qi foundation had huge potential to grow.
Zhou Yuan’s eyes beamed with joy. Silver Shadow’s transformation was undoubtedly a huge surprise to him. He didn’t feed those ancestral qi treasures to it in vain.
He told Silver Shadow to disperse the Great Flame Devil, and he felt the changes within its body again.
“Hey, the red light and red patterns in the orifice have become weaker…”
Zhou Yuan gasped, and immediately scratched his head. Does this mean the Genesis arts that Silver Shadow obtains from me have a consumable nature? Will it disappear once used too many times? I have to replenish it once they disappear?
“This isn’t a huge problem…”
Although this was a little flaw, Zhou Yuan wasn’t too disappointed. This kind of consumable property was normal. It would be even more unbelievable if he could pa.s.s Genesis arts he had worked so hard to learn onto Silver Shadow without any drawbacks.
Perhaps, Silver Shadow could reach that level if it becomes a true Saint treasure.
Zhou Yuan’s eyes were full of smiles. Silver Shadow has undergone a reborn-like change after following me for years. But thinking of this, his heart skipped a beat. Would Silver Shadow’s change have something to do with Yaoyao?
Back when Yaoyao studied Silver Shadow, she had made changes to it in many areas.
Perhaps other people might not have such an ability, but Zhou Yuan believed there was a high possibility that Yaoyao could do so, given her mysterious powers.
Yaoyao had given him countless help and support over the years, and if it weren’t for her, Zhou Yuan felt he couldn’t achieve what he had.
But it was also because of him that Yaoyao was severely wounded and unconscious till now.
He felt he owed Yaoyao too much.
“Don’t worry, I will be able to awaken you when I find the Ancestral Dragon Flesh in Guyuan Heaven.” Zhou Yuan slowly clenched his fists, his eyes blazing with determination.
At that moment, he heard footsteps at the entrance to the cave.
With a wave of his sleeve, Silver Shadow dissipated. It turned into a stream of silver liquid and fell into his palm. It quickly penetrated into his body and vanished.
Zhou Yuan cast his gaze to the cave entrance and saw Qin Lian darting over.
“Did something happen?” Zhou Yuan asked, seeing the suspicious expression on her face.
Qin Lian came over and handed Zhou Yuan something, which seemed to be a scroll of parchment. “Someone secretly gave this thing to us and said to give it to you.”
Zhou Yuan found it strange. He received the parchment and wrapped it in Genesis Qi. It was only after he confirmed there wasn’t any abnormality inside the scroll that he slowly unfolded it. There was nothing but a line of writing.
But it was the writing that caused Zhou Yuan’s pupils to shrink and murderous intent rose in the depths of his eyes.
“w.a.n.g Xuanyang plans to attack Su Youwei and seize her Yin source to perfect his Yin Yang Peach Blossom Fan.”
