Chapter 1135 Divide
In the destroyed valley, the various forces from Cangxuan heaven were reorganising their troops and checking their losses.
Standing somewhere in the great valley, Zhou Yuan studied the great rus.h.i.+ng river that ran through the valley, the Decoder Saint Rune flowing in the depths of his eyes.
It was time to collect their harvest now that the Sacred Race had retreated.
Under the Decoder Saint Rune’s prying gaze, everything concealed in the depths of the earth was clearly revealed to Zhou Yuan, including the high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein.
“It’s hidden so deep…”
But Zhou Yuan was a little surprised that the terrain was this complicated and the ancestral qi vein was hidden incredibly deep into the ground. It was impossible to detect the ancestral qi vein with ordinary means. Zhou Yuan wondered how Ji Mo learned about its existence. Under normal conditions, even Zhou Yuan would have overlooked this area if he hadn’t used the Decoder Saint Rune to investigate carefully.
He only detected it when he tunnelled into the ground.
After investigation, Zhou Yuan found that the ancestral qi within the ancestral qi vein was at least ten times stronger than the strongest vein they had ever discovered!
If based on harvest alone, such an ancestral qi vein was enough to make thousands of people from the Tianyuan Region rush here without stopping and even unhesitatingly go to war with the Sacred Race team.
“What? Is there really a high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein here?” Qin Lian asked impatiently.
She also coveted a high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein.
Zhou Yuan nodded with a smile.
Qin Lian, Mu Youlan, Han Jinhe and others all lit up with pleasant surprise. No one expected their accidental clash with the Sacred Race would result in such a great harvest, which would boost their morale.
“No wonder I felt that the Sacred Race team was deliberately driving us somewhere. But why did they drive us all here? Because of the high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein?” Chu Qing said puzzledly.
Zhou Yuan explained, “Because this high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein is hidden too deeply. They drove the people from Cangxuan Heaven to make them fight with the Sacred Palace people. As a result, the blood scent and the fluctuation of Genesis Qi would trigger Earth Disasters in the depths of the ground and draw out the ancestral qi vein…”
“Although their means are cruel, it is indeed effective. The high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein has reached the point where it can be captured now.”
Li Qingchan’s cold face was shrouded in frost as she said hatefully, “What beasts!”
Zhou Yuan also nodded. There were other methods to draw out high-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins but Ji Mo chose the cruelest one. From this fact, it was clear that the people from other races were worthless in their eyes.
“How should we divide the ancestral qi vein?” Zhou Yuan suddenly asked.
The surroundings immediately fell silent.
High-cla.s.s veins were incredibly rare and their benefits equalled to that of more than a dozen of middle-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins. Therefore, a high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein was a huge temptation for any force.
Qin Lian, Mu Youlan, and Han Jinhe and other Tianyuan Region people didn’t say anything and just looked at Chu Qing and Li Qingchan. In truth, if it were an ordinary situation, they wouldn’t plan to share the harvest. But this time it was different. Although Zhou Yuan was a grand elder of the Tianyuan Region, he was also a Cangxuan Sect Chosen and it was clear that he still had deep feelings towards the Cangxuan Sect.
So they waited to hear what the Cangxuan Sect would say.
Li Qingchan showed a rare awkward expression. From a moral point of view, it would only be fair if they gave up on the ancestral qi vein since the Tianyuan Region traveled so far over to rescue them. However, the other Cangxuan Heaven forces had asked her the high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein and wondered if they could have a share of it to soothe their depression.
Li Qingchan cast a glance at Chu Qing only to find that he was s.p.a.cing out, and her expression immediately darkened.
Chu Qing quickly recovered from his dazed state and said with a bitter smile, “There is no need to ask me about this kind of thing, is there? You can make a decision.”
Qin Lian folded her arms and looked discontent. “You won’t stand up at such a time and want to rely on a girl?”
Chu Qing was silent for a moment and then said: “Actually…I’m just a puppet.”
Qin Lian was a little speechless about his shamelessness. She glanced at Zhou Yuan and said in an irritated voice, “I know where you learned the habit of evading work.”
Zhou Yuan said angrily, “How would I be lazy to that degree?”
“Junior brother, save some face for your senior brother,” said Chu Qing nonchalantly.
Zhou Yuan rolled his eyes at him. “I will make the final decision then on how to share the high-cla.s.s ancestral qi vein. The Tianyuan Region will take 70% and 30% will be left for Cangxuan Heaven. In addition, the Tianyuan Region will provide protection to Cangxuan Heaven for a period.”
Chu Qing scratched his head, saying, “30% is a bit too much.”
Even 30% of the ancestral qi contained in the high-cla.s.s vein was more than that in several middle-cla.s.s ancestral qi veins. Even if they had worked very hard, they have never received such a great harvest.
Li Qingchan bit her lips, looking at Zhou Yuan with a complicated gaze.
They all understood that Zhou Yuan wanted to take care of Cangxuan Heaven, and this was because of the Cangxuan Sect.
Zhou Yuan waved his hand. He was aware of the Cangxuan Heaven’s terrible state. They had suffered heavy losses, and their morale was extremely low. If he let them share some of their harvests, that would no doubt improve the Cangxuan Heaven’s morale. If course, the most important thing was that it would raise some people’s strength and make Cangxuan Heaven stronger overall.
Of course, Zhou Yuan didn’t deny that he did that because of the Cangxuan Sect.
“What do you think?” He looked at Qin Lian and the others.
Qin Lian gave a faint smile and nodded, saying that she had no opinion.
The others shrugged. They also knew that they weren’t giving Cangxuan Heaven 30% out of pity but because they have to give face to Zhou Yuan.
After the battle with Ji Mo, Zhou Yuan’s prestige in the Tianyuan Region team members’ hearts had reached an unprecedented level, because that was the first time that he had shown such terrifying strength, which surpa.s.sed even Qin Lian’s. This created an effect of excitement within the Tianyuan Regionn team. After all, the stronger one’s captain, the more beneficial it would be for them in Guyuan Heaven.
“Then it’s decided.” Zhou Yuan exclaimed.
Li Qingchan wanted to say something when Chu Qing stopped her. He said helplessly, “Forget it, this is a little token of his. But we have to make this matter clear to the other forces afterwards. They all owe Zhou Yuan a favor, and later when they return to Cangxuan Heaven, they should take care and protect the Great Zhou Empire.
Hearing this, Li Qingchan nodded
Gazing at Zhou Yuan, who had turned to communicate the plan to the Tianyuan Region team members, she said softly, “I didn’t expect he would come this far in just a few years…
“He was just an inexperienced youngster when he came to the Cangxuan Sect.”
In the past, she had always felt that Zhou Yuan wasn’t worth so much care from Yaoyao, but now it was clear that her vision wasn’t as good as Yaoyao.
Chu Qing smiled and said, “This is just now…wait, wait until he returns to Cangxuan Heaven, at that time you will be stunned by his progress.
“Even a lazy person like me is looking forward to that day. So, we have to make good use of the time to improve our strength. Otherwise, when the big show begins, we won’t even be eligible to partic.i.p.ate… .”
Li Qingchan remained silent for a moment, then nodded vigorously.
The scene of how Sacred Palace wreaked havoc on Cangxuan Sect flashed to her mind. She slowly balled her pretty hands into fists, and her eyes flashed with intense hatred.
“I also look forward to that day…”
