Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2239


Chapter 2239

The silence in the valley was as unbearable as the mind of its disciples, jumping at the slightest noise . Their weapons were unsheathed as they waited for days to pass by .



They were ready to fight, unlike a certain someone who never left his room, simply focusing on cultivation .

Li Qiye meditated and was as still as a wooden statue .

“Buzz . ” After a long time, green leaves suddenly came out first before the old tree fully manifested from the ground . Li Qiye had chosen to name this tree Longevity .

Its leaves were rustling, seemingly very excited .

Li Qiye chuckled and patted it with a profound glare: “Longevity Valley is indeed interesting with powerful ace cards . Quite unexpected . ”

He naturally wasn’t here to be a First Disciple . His goal was something else and he simply played along with the others .

He recalled the old tree before returning to meditation . This peace was broke several days later with a visit from Miaozhen .

She wore a tight dress meant for battle; her mood completely different from before and was rather fierce . Nevertheless, she was still as charming and pretty as ever, causing eyes to bulge .

“A monarch from Everlasting is here . ” She got straight to the point after seeing him .

Due to the sage’s injuries, the ancestors were preoccupied so many tasks in the valley fell to the young generation . This was a true test for them .



Miaozhen had a bigger role due to her status and personally presided over many matters . The current defensive plan was hers as well .

She lived up to the expectation and became a great commander despite her young age . There was no doubt that she had prepared for this day .

“And?” Li Qiye chuckled .

Her eyes narrowed, resulting in a serious expression: “He came bearing gifts for a marriage proposal . ”

“Which one? Let me guess, Poison King Huang Quanwei and our doctor?” He guessed .

“Yes . ” She nodded: “The monarch wishes to see Master and talk about the proposal . ”

Li Qiye smiled, this perfect timing was quite a coincidence .

“You just need to tell the ancestors . ” He said .

“The ancestors are either in isolated cultivation or empowering the ancestral cauldron to heal Master . The rest are on guard at the cave . ” She revealed .

She made it quite clear that it was up to them to decide .



“You’re the First Sister . Go talk to Yalan and the others and decide for yourselves . ” He answered .

“Yalan refused . ” Miaozhen continued: “Plus, I might be the First Sister but you’re the First Brother . As the main disciple under the master, you should be in charge of this matter . ”

This marriage proposal was no coincidence so how could they agree? Plus, Yalan had no feelings for the Poison King . This proposal had no chance of success .

“You’re already doing a great job . I trust that you can handle this matter . ” He smiled .

“Nice try!” She glared at him: “Don’t think about running before the fight, it is time for you to bear the mantle . Fine, we can make the decision but you will need to be the one telling their monarch . ”

“You want me to be the bad guy?” Li Qiye laughed: “That could result in war . They are certainly not friendly so once a fight starts, I’ll be in the very front . ”

“So, are you afraid?” She tried to egg him on .

“Mindgame doesn’t work on me, little girl . ” He shook his head and said .

“Don’t forget, you haven’t done anything yet as the First Disciple, don’t sit in the outhouse without taking a shit . Not telling you to join the battle is already treating you too nicely . ” She angrily complained .

“Watch your image now, you’re the representative of our sect, how can you say such crude words? You’re ruining your image as a nice girl . ” He teased .

“Stop blabbering, are you coming or not?” She revealed her true nature after a few sentences .

It looked as if she would give him a good beating if he were to refuse .

“Of course I am . I don’t dare to disobey the First Sister, the consequence of that would be so bad . ” He smiled sarcastically .

She was furious and pinched his waist hard enough for him to open his mouth in pain .  

“I’ll tell you something . ” She said during their walk .

“The Alchemy Conference is happening soon, it’s a day where the system worships the ancestors . Our valley has always been in charge of it . ” She carefully said .

Li Qiye smirked: “Such good timing for someone to hurt the master just before this date . And now a marriage proposal too?”

“That’s why you know what needs to be done . ” She looked at him and said .

“What if I go firm? Keep in mind that I do not concede, the enemy must either lick my shoes or be the bones beneath them . Little girl, you need to be ready for the aftermath for dragging me out here . ” He said flatly: “Do you want to delay this or declare war? The former is better in my absence since I always go all out once I decide to do something . ”

Miaozhen contemplated quietly before looking straight into his eyes, wishing to see into his soul while allowing him to do the same .

“I trust you . ” She finally nodded: “Though I don’t know why Master picked you to be the First Disciple, I still trust you all the same . Since Master isn’t here, I will let you do as you please . Our three sisters have your back . ”

“Little girl, you might just be handing Longevity Valley to a devil . ” He laughed and touched her forehead before moving on .

***

The monarch of Everlasting was waiting in a palace chamber . This was a stalwart old man with sharp brows and cold eyes . He had the most influence and authority in Everlasting right now among the monarchs after many successful conquests .

Their emperor asked him to be in charge of this marriage proposal . He came quite prepared for this task .

However, he has been waiting for a long time . Not to mention an ancestor, not even an elder got here to see him . Nevertheless, he remained calm and sat there in silence .

He didn’t mind the deliberate slight because the valley wouldn’t be arrogant for long . Not long from now, the system would belong to Everlasting .

Why? Because their kingdom was the strongest right now, far exceeding Longevity Valley in terms of military prowess . Whether it be an ordinary disciple or the nobles in that kingdom, they all thought that Longevity Valley had declined, way inferior in comparison to them .

Furthermore, they have been in charge for long enough . It was time for someone else to take the reins .
