Bingning became alarmed, realizing that the matron would only make this public with permission from Dracoform Martial God .
Keep in mind that no one had more authority than Dracoform in all of Vermillion . This supreme existence had the final say .
In the past, she could complain to her master and the other ancestors . Out of their love for her, they would hesitate and think about it . But Dracoform’s words were an unquestionable decree . Even her master wasn’t qualified to question it .
Her resistance seemed futile before absolute power . Nevertheless, she still denied: “No, I will not marry into the Mu, and definitely not to that young lord!”
The youths who liked her heaved a sigh of relief . Though this marriage was inevitable, her rejection still made them feel better .
“It’s not up to you!” The matron uttered coldly: “A marriage is a serious matter, it is not your place to decide! Men, ask your successor to return . ”
After hearing this, her group slowly surrounded Bingning .
“Please come back or you will have to excuse us . ” Several old True Gods had no choice but to use force .
“Elder Chen, your group isn’t enough . ” Bingning scowled and raised her spear forward . Her battle intent surged, showing everyone that her title of a martial goddess wasn’t all talk .
The old men hesitated but still decided to use a formation . This was the only way for them to capture her alive .
The crowd was in awe . She had completely gone against her own dao system - a traitorous act .
This was a difficult and painful choice for any cultivator since they would have nowhere to go, especially when the sect was a top one like Vermillion . No one would dare to help or take her in lest they risk antagonizing Dracoform .
“A bunch of old fools . ” Li Qiye smiled and shook his head after hearing this .
The matron slammed her walking stick on the ground, causing the mountains nearby to tremble . She uttered: “You have an exaggerated opinion of your own abilities, your deception warrants death, and I shall be the one to carry out the punishment, ridding Myriad of a vermin like you . ”
“I’d like to see you try . ” Li Qiye didn’t bother standing up .
“Brat, this isn’t Insane Court or Longevity, it will be too easy to capture you!” The matron continued .
Everyone took a deep breath . It seemed that Vermillion has made up its mind about eliminating Li Qiye .
“Buzz . ” the old man finally activated their formation . Multiple pillars descended from the sky and sealed the area, stopping Bingning from escaping .
“Break!” She roared and thrust upward with her spear with impeccable ferocity, capable of penetrating the sun and moon .
The old men summoned a golden bell in order to capture her alive .
“Bang!” Unfortunately, it shattered before her sweeping spear . She leaped in the air and gathered more power in order to break the formation .
The old men roared and created a huge palm with the formation to stop her next thrust and prevented her from escaping .
In this split second, an invisible and soundless palm strike slammed on her back . She looked as if struck by thunder and vomited a mouthful of blood . Her cultivation was sealed so she started free-falling towards the ground .
“Take her away . ” The matron’s cold voice sounded .
Everyone thought that she was about to fight Li Qiye but she actually chose to ambush Bingning instead . As an eighth-level True God, she shouldn't have performed a sneak-attack on her own junior . That’s why everyone was caught off guard .
As the old men drew closer to pick Bingning up, a shadow suddenly flashed and slammed into them, causing them to go flying with broken bones and blood gushing from the mouth .
The shadow then caught Bingning with imperceivable speed . This was naturally Li Qiye . He then removed her seal and said: “Stand back, leave this to me . ”
Bingning hesitated for a moment before moving behind him and started recovering .
The matron was naturally furious and bellowed: “Little animal, you want to die!”
“That’s my line . ” Li Qiye lazily looked at her: “Scram before I make a toilet out of your skull . ”
“Hahaha!” She laughed from being overwhelmed with rage before telling Bingning: “Girl, it is not too late to give up or your sin will be unforgivable!”
Bingning looked straight at the matron before choosing to close her eyes to meditate once more .
Her attitude made everyone understand her resolute will to rebel against Vermillion .
The crowd was astonished - the successor of Vermillion was going against her own sect!
“I’ll kill this little animal before dealing with an idiot like you!” The matron was ready for blood .
“I’ll make mincemeat out of you!” Her eyes exuded terrible rays - as sharp as blades .
“Let’s go . I don’t like bullying old people with one foot in the grave, but since you are courting death, I’ll entertain you . ” Li Qiye retorted .
The crowd didn’t know whether to laugh or cry . An eighth-level True God was someone with one foot in the grave?
The matron felt humiliated as rage filled her head, causing her to tremble . She pinned her walking stick on the ground and began her attack .
People were naturally frightened . A being of this level was no joke . Plus, because of her master, she was far stronger than another True God of similar cultivation .
“Boom!” Her energy erupted with halos appearing . They could create a new world and raise the sun and moon . She looked like an almighty god standing in the middle of the halos .
The spectators held their breath, ready to watch her first blow . Some wanted to use her in order to have a better idea of Dracoform’s power .
