The sage didn’t become angry at Li Qiye’s frivolous attitude and simply went to sit close to him .
The crowd held their breath while watching this strange pair of master-disciple . They felt something strange because Li Qiye was too domineering, acting above everyone - including his master . She seemed to be overshadowed before him .
“You are the First Brother, capable of accepting the valley’s legacies and shoulder great responsibility…” The sage smile blossomed like a hundred flowers . The three sisters looked more ordinary with her around . Such beauty could sway the soul .
However, upon closer inspection, one would find a resemblance between her and Lan Miaozhen . Both were quite wily .
“Forget it, not interested . ” He smiled and reached to touch her gorgeous chin to have a better look at her face .
The atmosphere became frozen . This was the lord of the valley and his master . Others wouldn’t dare to be disrespectful around her yet Li Qiye did so publicly . The guy was ungovernable .
Nevertheless, the whole thing seemed so natural . Whatever this ferocious man did, it felt just right and not surprising at all .
Once he chose to step up, he could exceed everything; all bent to his whims .
He pulled back before the stunned spectators and smiled: “I’m not someone who minds playing the bad guy or do some labor, but there is a price for everything . Are you ready for it?”
“It is all up to fate . Isn’t this what you wanted anyway?” The sage smiled, revealing a beauty on par with the Untethered . It was just that the two of them had a different style . The latter was cold and supreme, rarely showing off her smile .
“Very well . ” He replied cheerfully: “Then it is time I take what is owed . The rest is up to you . ”
Having said that, he stood up and teleported to the top of Herb-plucking . Before the crowd could respond, he disappeared from sight .
“What is going on?” People exchanged glances of confusion .
He had destroyed Everlasting thus his contribution exceeded everyone else in Longevity Valley .
The situation had stabilized so next was the celebration . He certainly deserved his moments of glory, the preamble before his ascension to being a leader . Alas, he left all of this to everyone’s astonishment . He would have been able to do whatever he wanted in the system after doing so much . It would have been the right opportunity to establish his status . Instead, he didn’t care about the rewards or authority .
The three sisters sighed after seeing this . After interacting with him for the last several days, they realized that he didn’t care for ruling Longevity Valley, and that he wouldn’t stay for too long . This was a dragon, one that would soar across the nine firmaments .
The sage took back her spot on the throne and told everyone: “Many things have occurred but it is still the date of the ceremony . Disciples of Longevity have the responsibility to protect the peace . Our system has allowed for the races and sects to co-exist with freedom and individual sovereignty . This, in turn, promotes growth, so I’m sure no one wishes to see the flames of war…”
The sage spoke softly but the message resounded across the entire system . All experts heard it clearly .
She was re-affirming the valley’s status as the ruler in the system, just like the last millions of years . Sects have come and went, but the valley’s position has never changed regardless of the crises and dilemmas . No other sect could replace this main branch, not in the past, present, or the future .
“May Longevity lasts forever!” The members of the crowd kneeled on the ground and shouted .
“The ceremony commences!” The sage initiated the ceremony just in time . Peace had finally returned .
With the smoke of incense wafting in the air, the group worshipped their ancestors . Next was the offering gifts . The sage stood in front and offered these items .
Despite the usurping attempting, the ceremony still happened on an auspicious day with the valley in charge . The only thing different now was that the great Everlasting had been turned to ashes .
The order of power would change in the system, but the valley remained firmly on top .
Sad and happy feelings were mixed in the crowd . The supporters of the valley naturally celebrated . Their stance during the conflict had determined their future position . The sad ones obviously picked Everlasting . Even if the valley wouldn’t eradicate their sect, it still would carry out judgment . Their role in the system would start a rapid decline .
Ultimately, the ceremony this year was quite exciting . One step to either hell or heaven; one misstep to lose it all, not only in a personal sense but also by implicating their sect .
In the end, the party ended and everyone went home . The representatives of the other systems said their goodbyes .
The Untethered was the last to leave . She and Longevity Sage were the last two around; the atmosphere was quite calm .
These were the two great beauties of Myriad Lineage, both from the daoist doctrine . Their daoist robe made it even more interesting and tempting .
The sage was free and friendly while the Untethered acted cold and imperious . Two different styles; beloved all the same .
They reigned in Myriad Lineage not just because of their status and power . The two of them also possessed great insight and ideas .
“Do you know that your First Disciple is in charge of Insane Court?” The Untethered looked at the sage . Her cold voice was strangely pleasant .
“I’m aware, it’s not a secret or anything . ” The sage smiled .
“Have you thought that he could also do the same to your system, controlling its dao source?” The Untethered continued .
“I have . He’s talented enough to do anything without facing difficulties . ”
“Don’t forget, Insane Court is still not completely clear of being a heretical sect . It’s not wise to let Longevity System falls into the hands of someone else . ” The Untethered put on a serious expression .
“I do recall that all systems have signed an agreement, recognizing Insane Court’s legitimacy as a system . ”
“Are you so sure that the same madness won’t return? Your valley will be the first to face opposition then . ”
“You underestimate my disciple . ” The sage shook her head: “That Virtue True God isn’t qualified to be on the same level as him . Our entire world can’t get into his sight . ”
“You sound quite confident . ”
“I simply believe in my eyes . Have you ever seen me misjudging someone?”
