Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2286

Chapter 2286

The Untethered stared at the sage for a bit before continuing: “Nothing in life is so certain . One day, your confidence might be the valley’s undoing . ” 

“Sounds like you wish to have a contest with me . ” The sage smiled with a hint of provocation .

To which the Untethered responded: “Contest? In what manner? Your system against mine?”

The two daoists had a special relationship - friends and rivals . Though there hasn’t been a big fight between them, the competitive aspect was always around .

Normally, they would prefer to have a bout of strategy instead of a physical duel .

“Fighting is so uncouth . ” The sage replied: “How about betting on my disciple? If you lose, I’ll decide for him and take you in as his concubine . ”

“And if you lose?” The always-expressionless Untethered actually provoked .

The sage had a playful expression unseen by outsiders . She grabbed the Untethered’s chin and chuckled: “If I lose, I’m fine with being your bed warmer . ”

“You don’t lose either way . ” The Untethered glared back, looking both arrogant yet cute .

“Then what do you want?” The sage blinked one eye, resembling a little devil . One would find it hard to recognize her right now .

“No need for that . ” The Untethered said: “Defending traditional moral principles is our duty . If your disciple falls into the heretical path, I will be the first to take him down . ”

“If that actually happens, I don’t think you will be able to stop him . He’ll just take you in as a concubine, of course, this is predicated on him being interested in you in the first place . ” The sage smiled .

“We’ll see if he has the ability to do so . ” The Untethered’s coldness made people want to conquer her .

“Don’t worry, he’s definitely capable . ” The sage smiled deviously: “But if he doesn’t, I’ll make him take you in anyway . ”

The two bantering women looked too alluring right now .

“Are you still sleepy?” The Untethered said flatly: “It won’t just be my sect at that point but all of Myriad Lineage . Vermillion Martial Court, Coiling Dragon, and many others . You won’t be in charge at that point since your own system won’t follow you . ”

She warned the sage, no longer joking around .

The sage stretched forward, revealing all of her enchanting curves . Unfortunately, no one was lucky enough to see them . She didn’t seem to mind at all: “My little sister, even if he’s insane, he’s more rational than anyone else and no one can control him . His eyes should have told you this . ”

The Untethered stared at the sage’s curves, unaffected: “Regardless of what you say or how much you trust him, I’ll remain cautious . Also, you’re younger than me . Watch your honorifics . ”

“So that’s your sect’s stance on the issue . However, I trust my intuition more . ” The sage shrugged and smiled .

“Then you better take care of yourself . A few things will be out of our control once it escalates to that level . ” The Untethered warned .

“True . However, the one you should be cautious about is not my disciple, but that Mu guy . ”

The Untethered became attentive right away: “What did you found during your trip to the martial court?”

“Nothing, but the court is too close to this guy right now, he is definitely scheming something . ” The sage’s expression turned cold with a rare murderous intent .

It was hard to imagine someone like her being murderous so something was going on below the surface .

“So, he played a part in urging Everlasting to attempt the coup?” The Untethered’s eyes narrowed .

Despite their rivalry that could be too heated at times, the two also had an implicit understanding .

“Everlasting couldn’t have access to a few things we saw . ” The sage said .

“What does he want? The Mu Clan up there can blot out the heaven . ” The Untethered wondered .

“I’m sure it isn’t simple . Whatever reasons he used to come down here will be a lie . The storm will start from him . ” The sage believed .

“People from Imperial are coveting our world?” The Untethered came up with this possibility .

“I don’t think so . In my opinion, just certain individuals . ” The sage chuckled: “Though our Myriad isn’t on the same level as Imperial, we have also produced many progenitors . If anyone wants to take over, they must look up at the horizon first . ”

The Untethered nodded, agreeing with this comment .

“Someone is playing with fire right now . ” The sage continued: “And this person can influence our entire world . That’s why you should worry about him instead of my disciple . And maybe, in the future, your sect will ask my disciple for help, he’s the only person who would dare to destroy the Mu Clan without any scruple . ”

“This is blind confidence . ” The Untethered said: “You haven’t been to Imperial but still know of the Mu Clan’s power . Just imagine the consequence of killing anyone from there, his clan might even come down for a killing . No one dares to provoke them in Imperial, let alone our world . ”

The sage smiled again: “My disciple will . Trust me, everything is ephemeral and fleeting in his eyes . That Mu guy can only do whatever he wants here because of his clan’s reputation . But my disciple will treat Mu as just another last name . ”

“Your plan is to urge the tiger to eat the wolf . ” The Untethered said .

“Little sister, don’t put it like that . Leave it all up to fate, certain things will be ended eventually by the destined ones . ”

“Once again, I’m afraid you’re not the one to decide the players and the chess pieces . ” The Untethered remained skeptical .

“No, I’m not a player but not a chess piece either, only a spectator . Little sister, you’re taking this too seriously because of your great responsibility . We are different since you need to maintain your sect’s status in Myriad Lineage . But as for me, it doesn’t matter since the valley is only a third-rate sect . Let the world competes for status and wealth . For example, so what if Everlasting wants to take over . We would have let them if they were capable and right for the job . ” The sage spoke with such freedom while staring up at the horizon . This further exposed her beautiful, white neck .

“Yang Radiance must still stay as Yang Radiance . ” The Untethered concluded .

Yang Radiance was different from Longevity Valley . It was considered in the top three of Myriad Lineage, perhaps even number one . It wanted to maintain a worthy status and authority .

The valley was the opposite, hence the common belief that it had declined . They didn’t care much since unlike Yang Radiance, they didn’t care about protecting its spot in the world .

“Again, be careful, the Mu Clan might have control over the martial court and your sect will be next . When your sect is gone, Myriad Lineage is as good as theirs . Are you ready for this?” The sage smiled .

“It’s not like your valley will be able to escape either . ” The Untethered said .

“That’s fine, if sects like yours can’t handle it by then, we wouldn’t be able to change anything either . ” The sage was much more carefree: “But I’ll give you an idea . Just follow my disciple and let him be in charge of your sect . His domineering attitude and your sect’s power will be able to handle anything . ”

“Daydreaming again . ” The Untethered gave the sage the side-eye again .
