Chapter 1142 This guy’s a Big Shot
The tent fell somewhat silent when Zhou Yuan’s voice sounded.
The Hunyuan Heaven side was still quite okay because they had already heard it before. They were shocked out of their minds when they first heard the news, and even Dong Ye, who had witnessed Zhou Yuan’s strength, found it very hard to believe.
Dong Ye had seen Zhou Yuan in action when they ganged up on w.a.n.g Xuanyang previously. Although he had displayed surprising power, he was clearly still not strong enough to heavily injure the Shengling Heaven’s Ji Mo.
From the information they had, Ji Mo was definitely stronger than w.a.n.g Xuanyang, and was likely capable of putting up a fight against the likes of Guan Qinglong.
If they were to take Guan Qinglong out of the picture, an opponent like Ji Mo was someone no one in Hunyuan Heaven could match, including Dong Ye.
And yet, Zhou Yuan had gravely injured such an opponent. So what did this say?
Dong Ye’s gaze was somewhat complicated as she looked at Zhou Yuan. In a manner of speaking, she had watched every step of his astonis.h.i.+ng and rapid progression. Several months before entering Guyuan Heaven, Zhou Yuan had been nothing in her eyes. However, she had no choice but to admit now, that his battle power had likely already surpa.s.sed her own.
Such a monstrous person…
It was no wonder that even Su Youwei admired him and was so committed to him.
While the Hunyuan Heaven side were showing mixed feelings in their eyes, the Wanshou Heaven group finally recovered from their shock.
Jiang Jinlin skeptically stared at Zhou Yuan, his eyes full of doubt. “Captain Guan Qinglong, are you joking with us? You’re telling me an intermediate Heavenly Sun expert managed to heavily injure Ji Mo? Are you Hunyuan Heaven people all so childish?”
Ai Qing also nodded in agreement and tactfully said, “If captain Guan Qinglong is unsatisfied with our proposal, we can continue to discuss the details.”
Guan Qinglong softly chuckled and said, “Captain Zhou Yuan encountered Shengling Heaven’s Ji Mo because he went to rescue some Cangxuan Heaven friends. Right, most of the Cangxuan Heaven team is currently staying with us, and I’ve also invited their captain Chu Qing over.”
As he spoke, the tent flap was pulled open and two figures walked in.
One of them had a s.h.i.+ning bald head, while the other was the cold-looking Li Qingchan.
Chu Qing seated himself, the usual lazy look on his face as he said, “Junior brother Zhou Yuan did gravely injure Ji Mo. I can only tell you guys that whoever treats him as an ordinary intermediate Heavenly Sun expert is a super idiot.”
Jiang Jinlin, Ai Qing, Jin Linger and the others fell silent. They had only been unable to accept it because it was just too shocking and sudden. However, they understood that it was meaningless to make up such a lie. Moreover, the Cangxuan Heaven team had testified for Zhou Yuan. This could only mean that all of them had been wrong about him previously.
Jiang Jinlin stared hard at Zhou Yuan. He had originally believed that he only needed to pay attention to Guan Qinglong, but it now seemed that the Tianyuan Region’s Zhou Yuan, whom he had practically ignored from the start, was actually also a big shot.
The most shocked of the bunch were the Jin Linger and Jin Feng siblings.
Jin Feng could not help but mutter, “Sis, didn’t you say he’s very ordinary?”
Jin Linger gritted her teeth. “Who knew that he was acting weak!”
“If he is truly able to seriously injure an enemy like Ji Mo while at the intermediate Heavenly Sun stage, Little Ancestor was not exaggerating about him.” Jin Feng sighed, some admiration in gaze when he now looked towards Zhou Yuan. After all, even their Little Ancestor praised him so highly. Zhou Yuan was naturally worthy of Jin Feng’s respect.
Jing Linger’s pretty face turned a little unnatural. Her face could not help but feel hot when she recalled how pleased she had acted in front of Zhou Yuan earlier. Embarra.s.sment and anger surged in her eyes, but in the end, she could only grind her teeth and send a vicious glare at Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan ignored the awkward atmosphere and elaborated, “When we previously encountered Ji Mo, he had only been leading his Sea Subduing Hall team. His Sacred Pupil has a Death Subst.i.tute Art. After using it, his Sacred Pupil will enter a sealed state which is extremely difficult to recover from. Although Ji Mo is still a strong adversary, his threat level has decreased substantially without his Sacred Pupil.
“Besides Ji Mo, they also had a vice captain, Wei Tuo, but he was also gravely injured by me and I don’t know if he’s still alive.
“However, the other Shengling Heaven teams did not suffer any losses and not to be underestimated.”
“Death Subst.i.tute Art…” The crowd fell silent once more.
To have forced out Ji Mo’s Death Subst.i.tute Art meant that Zhou Yuan had created a fatal threat to his life. The threat had been so great that Ji Mo had no choice but to respond even if it meant having his Sacred Pupil sealed.
What kind of power could have done that?
Even the extremely prideful Jiang Jinlin felt a little wary when he looked towards Zhou Yuan again.
“Although the combined might of Shengw.a.n.g Heaven and Shengling Heaven is very powerful, we do have three heavens on our side, and should not be weaker than them.
“I feel that now is not the appropriate time to decide the distribution of the lotus seats. Though I understand the seats are our main goal, it’s a little early to decide especially since we have yet to confirm how many there are. Instead, I suggest we divide them according to contribution. Whoever contributes more will naturally get more seats. Likewise, whoever contributes less should gracefully give in.” Zhou Yuan’s calm voice rang out in the tent. If it was before, it was likely that no one would have given him much consideration. But now that they knew he had gravely injured Ji Mo, even the proud Jiang Jinlin did not immediately retort.
At the end of the day, the weight of one’s words was still dependent on one’s strength.
Guan Qinglong pondered the suggestion for a while and ultimately nodded in agreement. “It sounds fair.”
On the Wanshou Region side, Jiang Jinlin and Ai Qing exchanged a look before the latter released a lovely laugh. Her long and narrow phoenix eyes curiously looked towards Zhou Yuan as she smiled and nodded, a movement that better accentuated her elegant and fair neck.
“Then we shall proceed according to captain Zhou Yuan’s suggestion. Everything shall depend on one’s contribution.” Her voice was clear like the cry of a phoenix. “Mi Shan and Mi s.h.i.+ are the strongest experts on the other side. Leave Mi Shen to me and Jiang Jinlin. As for Mi s.h.i.+, we’ll have to request captain Guan Qinglong to deal with him.
“Of course, although these two are the strongest, the other Sacred Race experts cannot be underestimated. Although Ji Mo’s Sacred Pupil is sealed, he is still a formidable foe. His Genesis Qi foundation is near the 3 billion level, and besides captain Guan Qingling and Jiang Jinlin, there is likely no one in our three heavens who is strong enough to keep him in check. Since captain Zhou Yuan managed to gravely injure him, we’ll have to trouble you to handle your old enemy.”
Ai Qing’s gaze turned towards Jin Linger. “But to be safe, we will send captain Jin Linger to aid you.”
In the end, she was still not fully convinced, and was worried that things may go awry on Zhou Yuan’s side.
Zhou Yuan chuckled. It made no difference to him.
After going through the main components of the plan, the atmosphere in the tent turned rather relaxed.
Guan Qinglong stood up and said, “We shall launch our attack in three days, take over the ancestral qi stone wall and beat back the two Sacred Race heavens!”
Jiang Jinlin also rose to his feet. “Looking forward to a happy collaboration. I hope that we will be able to witness the might of Hunyuan Heaven. Please don’t disappoint me.”
There was still pride rising in his tone.
Guan Qinglong could not be bothered to argue, and merely displayed a faint smile. “Well, I hope you will be able to subdue Mi Shan.”
