Chapter 1305 Zhou Yuan’s Murderous Intent
The Great Alchemy Hall was buzzing with excitement as usual.
“This pill refining session produced 27 Ancestral Dragon Pills! The production rate seems steady!”
“This is really a joyous event. As long as he maintains this production rate, it will be easier to exchange for an Ancestral Dragon Pill.”
“Grand elder Zhou Yuan has some ability.”
“We really misunderstood him before…”
When the result was announced from the Great Alchemy Hall, gasps and exclamations rang throughout the area. Zhou Yuan had partic.i.p.ated in the refining of Ancestral Dragon Pill in the past two months and the results were extremely consistent, making all those who doubted him change their att.i.tude.
No one talked about Xu Beiyan again.
By the seven-color cauldron, Zhou Yuan stored away the Ancestral Dragon Pill and stretched.
“Ancestral Dragon Pills are really amazing,” Zhou Yuan marveled. He hasn’t had a taste of Ancestral Dragon Pill before so he didn’t understand its popularity among Nascent Source and Law Domain experts. It was only in the past two months that he began to understand what it meant to be called a divine pill. Even his 9.7 inches Nascent Source was gradually improving because of Ancestral Dragon Pills, let alone other people…
The only unfortunate thing was that even if he received four Ancestral Dragon Pills every month, it still wasn’t enough for him.
I can’t just rely on the salary from refining pills. I should find a chance to explore the chaos void. Zhou Yuan thought to himself. Although the chaos void was full of dangers, there could be huge rewards. He could become rich overnight if he captured a huge Ancestral Dragon Remnant Spirit.
While such thoughts streamed through his mind, two familiar figures at the hall entrance caught his eyes. They were Wu Yao and Zhao Mushen.
Wu Yao’s expression was urgent.
Zhou Yuan frowned and appeared in front of the two in a flash. “Are you two looking for me?”
Wu Yao nodded, knitting her slender, crescent brows together. “Su Youwei might be in danger.”
Zhou Yuan’s expression changed dramatically and he even lost control of his Genesis Qi, causing it to explode out of his body.
Wu Yao and Zhao Mushen had to bear the brunt and were blasted back a few steps. When they looked at Zhou Yuan again, their eyes were filled with astonishment.
The Genesis Qi foundation they felt…made them feel terror.
Zhao Mushen’s expression changed indefinitely as he carefully studied Zhou Yuan. He thought that Zhou Yuan had focussed all his energy into making his Spirit break through the Allroaming Stage in his two years of closed-door cultivation, but it seemed that his Genesis Qi cultivation hadn’t declined and instead became extremely terrifying.
Zhou Yuan should still be at the Nascent Source stage and hadn’t even opened up a pseudo Law Domain, yet the wave of Genesis Qi erupted from him was comparable to that of a true Law Domain expert!
“How many inches is that guy’s Nascent Source?” Zhao Mushen said in disbelief. It was already abnormal that Zhao Mushen’s Nascent Source had reached 9 inches and that he could kill pseudo Law Domain experts with his strength, but who would have thought that he was still at the younger brother level based on abnormality when compared to Zhou Yuan.
Although Wu Yao was similarly stunned by Zhou Yuan’s Genesis Qi foundation, she quickly suppressed those emotions and explained, “Su Youwei was very upset for a period and she didn’t come on any missions with us. But when we returned, we found out that she accepted a mission by herself. We also noticed rumors spreading in the All-Heavens City, saying that…”
She paused, glanced at Yaoyao, who was on the white jade platform, before she continued, “Saying that Su Youwei is your little lover, and you gave her many Ancestral Dragon Pills that you got from the G.o.ddess.”
Zhou Yuan’s face was devoid of expression but chilling flames leaped about in his eyes. He didn’t mind people trying to attack him with rumors, but those rumors involved Su Youwei. The rumors not only tried to ruin his relations.h.i.+p with Yaoyao but would also bring a lot of trouble to Su Youwei because the attractive power of Ancestral Dragon Pills was too amazing.
“We received news earlier that Su Youwei is being ambushed and is now in danger!” Wu Yao said urgently.
Zhou Yuan nodded. “I understand, do you know the spatial coordinates of where she was attacked?”
Wu Yao hurriedly handed over a mottled copper piece. “The coordinates inscribed on this is the location of Su Youwei’s mission.”
She then added, “I’m also coming with you.”
Her reason for going of course wasn’t because of Zhou Yuan, but because of Su Youwei.
Wu Yao had always admired Su Youwei, but Su Youwei wasn’t close to her because of Zhou Yuan. However, the relations.h.i.+p between Wu Yao and Su Youwei had improved a lot over the past two years and they were now considered good friends. Wu Yao had no friends due to her aloof personality and so she cherished Su Youwei very much.
Zhou Yuan nodded and didn’t refuse.
Zhao Mushen suddenly said indifferently, “This matter isn’t as simple as it seems. I have investigated those rumors but I couldn’t find the origin. The person who started them must have cleansed all traces already.”
Zhou Yuan’s eyes drooped slightly. Then, a chilling light flashed in his eyes. “I have only been in the All-Heavens City for two months. If there is someone who wants to target me, it’s easy to guess who.”
“Xu Beiyan?” asked Wu Yao.
Zhao Mushen shook his head, saying, “Although he’s suspicious, you have underestimated your ability to attract hatred. Do you think there are very few people in the All-Heavens City who hate you? If so, you really think too highly of the human heart.”
“I don’t need any evidence. If something really happened to Youwei, I am going to kill Xu Beiyan regardless of whether he did it or not.” Zhou Yuan said, expressionless.
Even though Xu Beiyan had a good reputation in the All-Heavens City, Zhou Yuan didn’t like him for some reason. It was that feeling that made Zhou Yuan know that Xu Beiyan was the prime suspect if there was someone scheming something.
The corners of Zhao Mushen’s mouth twitched, but he still reminded Zhou Yuan, “It’s not good to provoke Xu Beiyan. He has both strength and background.”
Zhou Yuan looked at Zhao Mushen. “If he really did something to Youwei. I am going to bury him regardless of who he is.”
Seeing Zhou Yuan’s eyes, Zhao Mushen didn’t say anything else because he could feel that Zhou Yuan’s heart was in a violent rage.
A black shadow sped across the air and landed on Zhou Yuan’s head. Then, Yaoyao’s voice resounded, “Take Tuntun with you.”
Tuntun lay down on his side on Zhou Yuan’s head, yawning lazily.
Zhou Yuan turned his head and glanced at Yaoyao, who slightly nodded at him and didn’t question him. The people were too naive to think that the so-called rumors could destroy the relations.h.i.+p between Yaoyao and Zhou Yuan.
Yaoyao didn’t personally accompany Zhou Yuan because she was under the heavy protection of the All-Heavens City and the Saints in the Omega Shrine would likely go crazy if she stepped outside the All-Heavens City and entered the chaos void.
Zhou Yuan retracted his gaze and transformed into a stream of light, soaring in the sky.
Wu Yao immediately followed after him.
Zhao Mushen pursed his lips and didn’t want to follow him because he would look like Zhou Yuan’s subordinate.
But while he was hesitating, a wisp of thought streaked across the air and entered his mind. “Little brother, hurry up and follow us!”
Zhao Mushen’s figure sped up the air. “Yes, I’m coming!”
