Lucidity didn’t become angry at all and actually laughed instead: “Hahaha! Should give everything a try, right? The world is yours, you’ll have plenty of chances in the future . ”
Lucidity couldn’t spoil someone more if he tried . There was no saving this king .
The ancestors were stunned - the father was imperious and unreasonable while the son was a perverted scoundrel . This duo was something else .
“Sounds perfect, when are you dying?” Li Qiye clapped his hands and laughed: “I’ll be in charge to do whatever I want and the kingdom will be mine then . ”
The ancestors became frightened . Who would dare to curse Lucidity like this? It was so blatant as well .
If someone else dared to say this, their head would be rolling on the ground, then the rest of their family members’ heads .
They thought that Lucidity would finally become angry . After all, he was still alive yet Li Qiye showed such impatience? No king could take this sitting down .
Alas, Lucidity’s reaction betrayed their expectations . He heartily laughed: “I won’t have much time left and should just let go . Don’t worry, this kingdom isn’t going anywhere . ”
The ancestors were tongue-tied . Lucidity was imperious and had reigned for three generations . Even the other two overlords of Imperial were slightly afraid of him .
Regardless of his cruelty and penchant for massacres, one must admit that he rarely made mistakes . He was both wise and powerful . Otherwise, he wouldn’t have maintained his rule for so long in Nine Secrets .
Unfortunately, this great and wise king became a fool today from over pampering his son! No one could imagine this sudden change .
The five ancestors became sentimental as they recalled his past exploits . Just one sentence from him and the gods would tremble .
The old proverb was right - everything has a weakness . He had met his nemesis in his own son . This could be considered karma .
“I heard you have a daughter too . ” Li Qiye suddenly brought this up .
The ancestors braced themselves, knowing that Lucidity didn’t like other people talking about his daughter in a negative manner . Once crossed, his fury could make blood runs like the river .
At the same time, they shuddered because his daughter was an incredible character, even more terrifying than Lucidity .
“That child…” Lucidity was lost in a daze with a gentle expression .
Meanwhile, the five ancestors held their breath while staring at him .
He seemed to be recalling a beautiful period in the past . His daughter was a big deal back in her generation . Though Lucidity had reigned for three, he only had one child .
A tiger wouldn’t birth a dog - his daughter displayed wondrous talents at cultivation and eventually became a high-level True Emperor . Finally, she left for Immortal and wasn’t heard from since .
“Jiu Ning is at Immortal and won’t come back . ” Lucidity’s wits returned .
Jiu Ning was his daughter whose title was also Jiu Ning .
“Her Majesty has been up there for an entire generation now, I believe she might be a twelve-palace True Emperor . ” The Wind God sentimentally said .
His comment affected the other four ancestors . A twelve-palace True Emperor was the strongest level beneath a progenitor . Even an Eternal like Lucidity was no match for one .
However, they were glad that she was no longer around, leaving without looking back . Otherwise, the father and daughter could sweep through all of Imperial . The other two behemoths wouldn’t be able to stop War Saint .
Lucidity couldn’t help but smile, feeling quite proud of his daughter .
“This type of power struggle can’t get into her sight . She wouldn’t compete with you even if she was around but she’s not coming back anyway . This world will be yours . ” He said to Li Qiye .
“Good . ” Li Qiye chuckled: “I’ll be leaving if there’s nothing else . ”
The ancestors didn’t know what to think about this father-and-son duo . Only Li Qiye would dare to act so rudely before Lucidity in the entire system .
“Have fun, Jiadi, make sure to protect the crown prince . ” Lucidity nodded and gave the order .
Jiadi bowed his head in response: “Don’t worry, Your Majesty . His Highness will not be harmed in the slightest as long as I am alive . ”
Li Qiye didn’t say anything else and left the scene . He didn’t return to the eastern palace, only smiling at Jiadi: “Alright, I’m bored staying here, let’s go outside . ”
“May I ask where to, Your Highness?” Jiadi quickly asked .
He was responsible for Li Qiye’s safety . This guy was the crown prince now so he had an assassination target on his back . Jiadi needed to exercise caution .
“Just around the capital . ” Li Qiye smiled: “We’ll walk around to see if there are beauties and married women . If I’m in the mood, we’ll take them back to the palace . ”
“ . . . ” Jiadi had no response right away . He coughed and said: “Your Highness, no need for that . You just need to say the words and many golden daughters in Nine Secrets will come running . ”
Jiadi wasn’t lying . The crown prince of Nine Secrets was noble and prestigious . Just one announcement from Li Qiye and numerous sects would send their female descendants to the palace .
“Jiadi, you just don’t get it . ” Li Qiye shook his head: “It is boring when it comes so easily . For example, just calling and people will bring you a feast, that’s no fun at all . If you can go up the mountain and hunt for your own food, that’s more interesting . You think I care for those easy girls? No, doing it by force and taking other people’s wives is the way to go . ”
Jiadi smiled wryly: “It won’t be good for your reputation, Your Highness . ”
“How much is one’s reputation worth?” Li Qiye said: “If I’m going to be a crown prince, I’m going to be a monstrous one - killing, pillaging, ravaging ladies and wives . As for being a benevolent and wise prince, only worrying about other people? That’s not what I want . ”
Li Qiye pulled up his sleeves, seemingly wanting to go all out .
Jiadi still didn’t quite understand this master . He didn’t exactly resemble a monstrous and lawless pervert . After all, a real evil bastard wouldn’t have been able to express such insight like Li Qiye did .
This rhetoric belonged to a sage, not a scoundrel like Li Qiye . Such words coming out of his mouth were so unexpected .
“Alright, I’ll come along, Your Highness . ” Jiadi waved and told the guards to come .
“Bringing an entire group?” Li Qiye refused: “How am I going to bring some women back like this? They will run away the moment they see the troops . No, get away, don’t ruin my fun . ”
“But this is for your safety, Your Highness . ” Jiadi said .
“Bullshit . ” Li Qiye rudely retorted: “Who can touch me with an Eternal like you around? If we get into a situation where you can’t protect me, bringing an entire army is useless . ”
Jiadi had no choice but to tell the men to back off . Nevertheless, Li Qiye’s statement made sense again .
“Also, hide your old face for me . If the girls see your face, they might run straight into my embrace and that will ruin the whole point of this trip . Don’t you dare mess this up for me . ” Li Qiye added .
