The revolt of the five legions frightened the system in full . All eyes turned towards Skywrap Mountain and the imperial city of War Saint .
“It is over for the dynasty . ” This thought came up in everyone’s mind .
A few ancestors shook their head and became sentimental: “The new king is done for . Lucidity King reigned for three generations, turning War Saint into this great behemoth but this guy managed to bring it to ruins so quickly . ”
A somber and reflective mood loomed over the land . War Saint’s current state of prosperity was due to Lucidity’s arduous efforts over the years . But now, only several days have passed and the dynasty was already shaking, on the verge of toppling at any moment .
“The five legions have defected . ” Jiadi immediately reported to Li Qiye upon finding out . His expression was quite ugly, knowing that this was beyond salvaging .
If Li Qiye didn’t order the march, then they might have been able to get through these tough times while relying on Lucidity’s vestige of might . This was no longer the case .
“It’s to be expected, it won’t just be the five legions either . ” Li Qiye smiled and said .
“Your Majesty, what should we do? Do you have a good plan?” Jiadi had no countermeasures to speak of, feeling that the new king had no chance to control the situation .
“Plan? No need for that . What will come will come . ” Li Qiye smiled: “But if you need something to do, my Jiadi, then start packing up, it’s time to go . ”
“You wish to retreat?” Jiadi put it nicely .
“No need for such euphemism, it’s called running . ” Li Qiye smiled: “No one will die to protect us against the rebellion . Just pack up and let whoever in the palace wants to run, run . ”
“Where do you wish to go, Your Majesty?” Jiadi paused for a moment and didn’t blame Li Qiye . His responsibility right now was to protect the guy .
“No, not me . I’m talking about you and your family . Go find a safe place to hide . ” Li Qiye chuckled .
“Your Majesty?” Jiadi became surprised .
“I’ll be cool here, it’ll be fun watching the rebels storm into the palace . As for what I’ll do to them, that depends on my mood . If I’m in a good mood, I’ll play with them, If not, I’ll just leave since it’s not my kingdom anyway . They can have it . ”
“Your Majesty, I’m afraid the rebels will want your life when they’re here . ” Jiadi was startled .
“I would like to see that, but unfortunately, I can’t find anyone who can kill me . That’s the most vexing issue . ” Li Qiye said .
“No, my responsibility is to protect you, so if you’re not leaving, I’m not leaving too . I have been entrusted by His Late Majesty to protect your safety, if anything were to hap- . . . ”
“First, I’m the king now, so if I tell you to leave, leave . Second, nothing will happen, what you imagine will never happen . ” Li Qiye interrupted him and said: “Just go pack up and tell others to leave or it’ll be too late once the army gets here . Don’t stop any of them .
Jiadi didn’t know what Li Qiye wanted to do . He bowed before leaving to carry out the order .
Meanwhile, Li Qiye closed his eyes to enjoy the massage from Bingchi Yingjian .
“You should go too . ” After a while, Li Qiye said: “The rebels are about to be here . Leave the imperial city and seek asylum . ”
She froze for a bit before regaining her wits and kneeled down with her head lowered: “I have been married into the royal clan, so I will be yours in life and death, there will be no escaping…” 
“Mine in life and death? Haha . ” Li Qiye said: “This is only a game of the higher-ups, and your marriage is but a sham, an empty showing . But if you actually have such thoughts, then I bestow freedom upon you and write you an imperial permission for traveling . ”
“Your Majesty!” She turned pale .
“Go . ” Li Qiye casually waved his hand: “Pick a few treasures from the treasury, considered it as bestowments, a type of fate . ”
“I…” She was speechless . Though she was taken to the palace by the Bingchi, she was willing to do so and had accepted her fate . But now, as the dynasty was heading towards collapse, she didn’t wish to leave . This thought had never crossed her mind before .
“It’s not too late to run . ” Li Qiye continued: “It will be too late once the siege starts . Don’t think just because you’re from the Bingchi Clan that they will spare you . In fact, maybe you’ll be the first victim . ”
“Your Majesty… when the army gets in, you’ll be in trouble . ” She looked up at him and said .
Though she wasn’t a master or anything, she was still trained by her clan members since youth and could tell that Li Qiye was very weak .
“I have my ways, and it’s not like you can protect me . Even an Eternal like Jiadi can’t stop an army, let alone you . ” Li Qiye smiled .
Yingjian found this to be the truth . Not to mention the great armies, Eight Formation True Emperor and Bingchi Juezun would be there as well . Jiadi alone couldn’t amount to anything .
“Take care, Your Majesty . ” In the end, Yingjian prostrated before him before leaving, overwhelmed with emotions .
After she was gone, he was still amused: “It will get very exciting at Nine Secrets with the collapse of War Saint . ” Having said that, his smile turned into a grin .
“Rumble!” Continuous detonations resounded as the armies drew near . The five legions that went to conquer the Bingchi have headed back to the capital .
The armies of the Bingchi and Myriad Formation traveled at the same time, heading for Skywrap . They looked like a flood of steel as far as the eye can see .
Taking the vanguard was Eight Formation True Emperor - one step was one world, crushing everything beneath .
“The king is incapable, immoral, and ruthless, I, Tian Zhiyuan, shall take arms against him for the sake of the world…” His voice echoed across Nine Systems .
Zhiyuan was his real name . He led these armies, wanting to overthrow War Saint Dynasty . The guy was brimming with ambition .
He wished to obtain a moral high ground so that his coronation would be legitimate . After all, regardless of how ridiculous the new king was, War Saint was still in charge of Nine Systems - the orthodox branch .
It was impudent of Myriad Formation to march towards the imperial city . The True Emperor didn’t dare to talk about killing the king, using the excuse of helping the citizens to shield his real intent . After all, he was a subject under Lucidity so this was considered a rebellion . He needed a perfect excuse to legitimize this conquest .
The armies number in the tens of millions suffocated the spectators .
Because of this, even before they got there, the imperial city closed its heavenly gates and bolstered the walls, seemingly sealing off the world . No one could take half a step forward .
With loud detonations, beams of light rushed from the palace into the sky . Large barriers descended around the palace, acting like steel walls . The place became an impregnable fortress .
The imperial city’s defenses have been activated, showing that War Saint Dynasty still had aces up its sleeve .
