Jiadi only grew increasingly confused during his time with Li Qiye .
When he came with Lucidity to this treasury for the first time, he was no longer a brat but rather a world-famous expert . He had plenty of experience under his belt and has seen some incredible spectacles .
Nevertheless, he still gasped in astonishment the first time he saw these treasures, unlike the calm Li Qiye . Moreover, Li Qiye could even pick any of them .
Jiadi didn’t know how to describe his emotions right now . Was his new master just slow to react or has he seen too many and got tired of them? To be this composed meant that he was either a complete idiot or that he has seen too many great things before .
Jiadi naturally didn’t know that the latter was right . This treasury was nothing compared to Samsara Wild Ancestor’s own .
Another treasure made Li Qiye stop - a glowing bell seemingly made from gold but with a purple glow . The entire bell was one piece, not made by men but rather created by nature in this shape . This surging purple energy was lifting the entire bell up .
“That’s an amazing treasure, I heard His Majesty used it extensively during his youth . ” Jiadi was shocked once again after seeing Li Qiye stopping here .
Though he strolled and treated this place like a food market, he actually stopped before several items including this bell .
It showed that his vision was keen - just one glance was enough to discern the good from bad .
“Umm, not bad . ” Li Qiye casually nodded before moving on .
Jiadi had no comment as this new master kept on surprising him .
Li Qiye stopped again in one corner of the treasury with cannons in full display, made out of unknown material and completely black - seemingly capable of knocking down the sky .
“These cannons are very powerful but after its creator passed away, no one can create the required materials and ammunition . Once the remainder is used up, it’ll be scrap metals . ” Jiadi introduced .
“This is quite fun, not requiring true energy to control . Yes, a good toy, shoot whichever pest is annoying me wherever and whenever . ” Li Qiye smiled .
Jiadi smiled wryly . These cannons were very precious and not much ammunition was left; who could bare to use them normally? Treating it as a tool to deal with annoying people? Far too wasteful .
After a full round, Li Qiye didn’t pick a single treasure and decided to leave .
“Your Highness, you’re not picking any?” Jiadi asked with confusion .
“Am I not in charge later?” Li Qiye answered with a question .
“Yes, Your Highness . ” Jiadi had to answer . This was obvious - he was the crown prince and would be the next king in the future .
“Then it doesn’t matter since after the king dies, not to mention this treasury, all of Nine Secrets and the world will be in my grasp, no need to pick a few when they’ll all be mine soon . We’ll return later for them . ” Li Qiye looked at Jiadi and said .
‘My goodness…’ Jiadi groaned in his mind, thinking that this guy was insane - already boasting about possessing everything even before Lucidity’s death . ‘Yes, he must be insane, doesn’t give a damn about anyone . ’
Jiadi decided to keep his mouth shut, not wanting to be involved in this mess . One wrong move could invoke the rage of Lucidity and heads will start rolling on the ground!
The two finally left the treasury . Once they got outside, Li Qiye seemed as if he was missing a few nerves and started waving at the guarding ancestors: “All of you need to watch over my treasures carefully . Don’t be lazy now, once I take over, I’ll reward you all handsomely . ”
These guards started looking at each other in confusion, speechless . They felt that he was crazy . Lucidity was alive yet he thought about taking over already?
Of course, these frightened souls didn’t dare to run their mouth . If Lucidity were to think that they were on Li Qiye’s side, all would be dead before the next day .
Right now, they wondered about Lucidity’s mental state . Perhaps being senile was why he appointed a guy like this as the crown prince .
Jiadi immediately led Li Qiye towards the eastern palace . He was nervous the entire way back, thinking that Li Qiye would ask someone else about Lucidity’s inevitable death . He didn’t wish for the stench of blood to stain the palaces .
Once they were back, he heaved a sigh of relief as if a huge weight has been lifted his shoulders .
At this moment, he preferred to have assassins come for Li Qiye’s life . He wouldn’t be afraid no matter how strong they were, but this guy’s mouth terrified him to the core .
It goes without saying that Li Qiye’s power warranted his going-with-the-flow attitude . Lucidity King and Nine Secrets System weren’t enough to get into his sight . This only served to confuse everyone else around him .
Lucidity’s decision was a mystery as well . Attributing it to senility from old age would be silly . After all, an invincible Eternal wouldn’t suffer from this . But how else could one explain this lapse of logic? No one understood what Lucidity was trying to accomplish .
Li Qiye spent his days enjoying life . The servants around couldn’t be more respectful to him, nearly on the verge of licking his boots .
After all, he was the crown prince, the future leader of Nine Secrets with supreme authority . Who wouldn’t want to curry favor right now?
If he wanted something, anything, these servants would satisfy his demands - truly an enviable life of the future king .
The gentle breeze blew by in a bamboo thicket belonging to the eastern palace . Their gentleness made people drowsy in a comfortable manner .
Li Qiye lay down on his large chair, seemingly asleep . The wind continued to caress him like a lover .
Some time passed by later, his servants all disappeared, leaving him alone .
No, there was someone else next to him - a girl sitting on a boulder nearby . She looked relaxed and natural, seemingly one with the world .
She was unreasonably gorgeous . Longevity Sage and Yang Radiance Untethered were pretty enough to topple kingdoms and sway the soul . However, they seemed to be missing a little something compared to her .
Her beauty wasn’t limited to her physical appearance but rather her aura . The other two were certainly transcending and pure like fairies, but that was in terms of appearance .
This girl gave the impression that she was an immortal, not just in appearance .
She wore a green dress with a faint, undulating glow around her like the currents in a lake . She had a gem on her forehead, as green and unfathomable as can be, seemingly connected to an ancient world .
She sat there quietly, each of her move resonated with the world, or rather, the world was moving to her actions . The orders and rhythm of nature followed her whims .
One would never get tired of looking at an immortal like her . One glance would all it takes for her to etch her image into someone’s mind for an eternity .
