Chapter 1129 Sacred Pupil
When the austere atmosphere spread out from between Zhou Yuan and Ji Mo, everyone within the great valley drew back simultaneously.
At that moment, even the arrogant Sacred Race team members grew more cautious.
This was because the strength that Zhou Yuan demonstrated made them have no choice but to draw away from the arrogance they had before.
Both sides didn’t want to start a war because they knew that both sides would suffer great losses once a battle breaks out and that would benefit other teams.
Just as the other five heavens of all races were in a compet.i.tive relations.h.i.+p, the four heavens of the Sacred Race similarly had many compet.i.tions among them.
However, Li Xuan of the Sacred Race was the one who found it most hard to accept. He had almost wiped out the Cangxuan Heaven’s great army but someone suddenly appeared and blocked his path.
Li Xuan glared at Zhou Yuan’s figure with a trace of fear flickering in the depths of his eyes. He always gave a snort of contempt when he heard how Zhou Yuan suppressed the younger generation of the Sacred Palace and thought Jiang Taishen and the others were such trash. But it was only now that he understood how unlucky they were to face Zhou Yuan.
It was simply sad to be in the same generation as such a person.
But the saddest thing was that Li Xuan also began to experience that feeling.
“This guy is strong, but fortunately senior brother Ji Mo is here. He can definitely suppress him.”
Li Xuan s.h.i.+fted his gaze to Ji Mo again, and the awe in his eyes intensified. As long as Ji Mo could suppress Zhou Yuan, the Tianyuan Region’s morale would be hugely impacted and their situation would be turned around.
As everyone withdrew from the great valley battlefield, countless people cast nervous and tense gazes towards the two figures facing each other on the battlefield.
Everyone knew that the match between these two would determine the outcome of the battle.
Under countless watchful gazes, Ji Mo slowly hovered into the air as he stared at Zhou Yuan. However, the contempt he showed earlier was completely gone. Although he still exuded the arrogance of the Sacred Race, he knew that such arrogance had little effect against an opponent like Zhou Yuan.
“Grand elder Zhou Yuan from the Tianyuan Region, am I right? If you retreat now, I can let you take away those people from the Cangxuan Sect,” said Ji Mo indifferently.
A commotion suddenly broke out in the Cangxuan Heaven’s great army. The non-Cangxuan Sect people scrunched their faces in worry. They didn’t think Ji Mo, who was always arrogant, would take a step back.
But they were relieved to see Zhou Yuan shaking his head calmly and saying, “I will take everyone.”
All forces from Cangxuan Heaven suddenly felt a surge of grat.i.tude, and their reverence for Zhou Yuan presumably had reached its peak. After all, not everyone would have the courage to protect them all when facing the Sacred Race.
Ji Mo shook his head in disappointment. “Humans don’t know how to appreciate kindness.”
“Since that’s the case, then die!”
As Ji Mo’s voice faded, his eyes turned chilling and Sacred blood with flecks of golden light trickled down from his fingertips, sketching out an ancient golden rune in s.p.a.ce in just a few breaths.
The golden rune took shape, turned into a shaft of golden light and shot towards the centre of Ji Mo’s brows.
“Activate the Sacred Pupil!” Ji Mo’s voice resounded like thunder.
All the Genesis Qi between heaven and earth was seemingly rioting.
The Sacred Race team members all stared in awe at the center of Ji Mo’s brows because the Sacred Pupil was the most distinct sign of the Sacred Race, and only when one had cultivated their blood to the strongest state would one be able to activate it.
Moreover, the Sacred Pupil was considered as one of the Sacred Race’s remarkable abilities and had boundless powers.
Amidst stunned gazes, the vertical rune in the center of Ji Mo’s brows slowly opened, revealing a vertical pupil flickering with golden lights.
Everyone felt indescribable fear flooding them when they saw the pupil, whether it was people from Cangxuan Heaven or the Tianyuan Region. The vertical pupil that contained no emotion was like a divine eye coldly watching all living beings and could destroy any living being with its power.
The Genesis Qi between heaven and earth surged frantically.
Qin Lian and the others were also aghast by the strange phenomenon.
What kind of power is capable of causing such a phenomenon in the world?!
Even Qin Lian, who had utmost confidence in Zhou Yuan, felt a little worried after seeing such a strange scene. Ji Mo was evidently much stronger than Wei Tuo!
Ji Mo stood in s.p.a.ce with his hands clasped behind his back, staring indifferently at Zhou Yuan. “Since you saw my Sacred Race’s Sacred Pupil, you can die without any regret now.”
Zhou Yuan looked rather solemn as he studied Ji Mo’s vertical pupil because he could faintly see two star-like objects slowly revolving around his pupil in a strange formation.
A feeling of danger surged to Zhou Yuan’s heart.
The power of the Sacred Pupil was terrifying.
When Ji Mo’s voice faded, the world fell silent for several breaths before a vast amount of Genesis Qi wildly gushed over and the two star-like spots in the vertical pupil suddenly grew brighter.
A drop of golden blood rolled down from the corner of Ji Mo’s eyes, as though forming a strange rune on his face. Then he performed a seal.
“Sacred Pupil, Light of Obliteration!”
A dark light beam shot out from the Sacred Pupil.
That light beam was silent, but the moment it shot out, the entire sky dimmed as though it swallowed all light.
Everything turned to powder wherever it went.
The people from the Cangxuan Heaven and the Tianyuan Region were all horrified because such a powerful offensive was simply unheard of.
Many worried and nervous gazes focused on Zhou Yuan. They didn’t know how Zhou Yuan would tackle such a terrifying offensive.
As everyone fixed their gazes on Zhou Yuan, he drew a deep breath and closed his eyes slightly.
Within his Divine Dwellings, the gourd silhouette that lied between illusion and substance pulsed slightly, and the ray of flowing rainbow light within it gradually grew brighter till it finally burst out with a screech.
Zhou Yuan slowly opened his eyes and held one hand out in front of him, palm facing up, and said softly, “Precious treasure, please show yourself.”
A ray of rainbow light suddenly rose from the top of Zhou Yuan’s head.
Although the light was faint, the darkness that shrouded the world was instantly cut apart when it appeared.
