Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2446

Chapter 2446

Zhang Jianchuan took Li Qiye to the ancestral peak for a look at Null Slate .

The two of them crossed through numerous mountains among the clouds via bridges to make it there, meeting many peers and seniors along the way .

As one of the five great powers, Godstep was obviously powerful with substantial resources . Despite being hidden in the sky away from the rowdiness of mundane life, the place was still lively . More than ten thousand disciples were around .

“Second Brother . ” The brothers and sisters on the path greeted Zhang Jianchuan .

Jianchuan wasn’t famous in Nine Secrets but he had a high status in Godsect, being the Second Brother and all . Moreover, his talents for cultivation and amiability earned him the love of his peers .

He also nodded and greeted them in response . His brothers and sisters found it quite strange to see their Second Brother being so respectful while serving Li Qiye . In their sect, few elders and ancestors would need the Second Brother to wait on them .

However, this youth didn’t look older than Jianchuan and was clearly a new cultivator, not an expert genius that could sweep through the world .

How could this youth enjoy such treatment from their Second Brother? Everyone became curious as a result .

“Brother, who is this gentleman?” A vivacious girl came up and asked .

Jianchuan was very careful in answering . He smiled and said: “An esteemed guest of our sect . ”

He was experienced enough to give a reasonable and watertight response .

Of course, no secrets last forever since Li Qiye has been staying here for so long . The top disciples have figured out Li Qiye’s identity .

“Who is that next to Second Brother? Why is Second Brother serving him?” Someone asked their Senior Brothers and Sisters .

To which a Senior Brother snorted and said while staring at the “weak” Li Qiye: “Hmph, that’s our king . ”

The young disciples took a deep breath and quietly said: “He, he’s the fallen king? War Saint Dynasty’s ruler with the shortest reign in history . ”

A Senior Sister sneered: “That’s him, the wretched and perverted king, deserving of losing his kingdom . It’s already a blessing of three lives that he is still alive . ”

This sister had nothing but contempt from the heart for the infamous king . Losing a kingdom over a woman? A man like this was a piece of trash .

“Hihi, don’t be so loud, he is still our guest . ” Another girl said .

“It’s fine . ” A Senior Brother joined in: “It’s no longer the era of War Saint, the land is no longer his . This useless pervert, no, this piece of trash is not worthy of our saintess . ”

“That’s right . ” The first Senior Sister agreed: “Our Senior Sister is heaven's favorite, the jewel of our sect . She’s beautiful and talented, only a monstrous prodigy is worthy of her, not this debaucherous trash . ”

No wonder why these disciples had such prejudice against Li Qiye - they were fans of their Senior Sister, Splendorous Saintess .

They knew that she had a noble bloodline on top of being perfect in every facet imaginable . She was the pride of their sect .

The girls adored and looked up to her; the boys had a crush on her .

For her to marry an incompetent and perverted king was akin to planting a gorgeous flower in a pile of manure . They naturally became indignant and resentful . Moreover, this king had already lost his kingdom and became even more unworthy .

“That’s the new king . ” Many disciples pointed at Li Qiye along the way and whispered: “The perverted one . ”

“Not anymore, just a fallen king, a dog without a master . ” A male disciple scorned: “He’s lucky to have shelter here and being alive . ”

“Indeed . ” Another instantly chimed in: “He would be dead if it wasn’t for us hiding him . ”

Jianchuan also heard the whispers and awkwardly apologized to Li Qiye: “Your Majesty, don’t mind them . They don’t mean it . ”

He didn’t realize that he had considered Li Qiye to be anything but a lecherous king . The guy was more than he was letting on . Li Qiye only smiled and ignored the whispers, not commenting on it .

The ancestral peak was sky high with a formidable presence . There were towering architectures and billowing clouds and mist along with a pure atmosphere .

It looked like a land of paradise from the distant . The majestic aura made it seem that there was a dragon slumbering beneath, and it could wake up and disperse the cloud during its ascension .

Before the precipice was a flat, square rock . It stood on the mud without being buried in the lower-half . Nevertheless, it remained stable as if it had taken roots below .

It had a reddish-brown color; the entire thing was in plain sight, clearly without any engraving - not a single spot .

Such a rock seemed to have been unearthed then brought to this place, untouched . On the surface were traces of weather - such as rain and mist . Oh, and various faint handprints .

Ever since Godstep True Emperor left it here, so many disciples have come to try and comprehend it . They rubbed it, hoping for a connection or a hint to the mystery .

Unfortunately, none has been successful . This rock remained a rock - seemingly its true form .

Great geniuses have come and left empty-handed for millions of years . Recently, they invited an exclaimed prodigy - Mu Shaochen . Even he himself failed to find anything .

Nevertheless, the disciples here believed that this rock had innate values or their patriarch wouldn’t have left it here for no reasons . It was their own fault for being unable to understand it .

In front of this rock named Null Slate was a large pavilion, capable of accommodating several hundred people . Once Li Qiye and Jianchuan got here, they found a large group hard at work . A few disciples were leaning against the rock, hoping to sense something from physical closeness .

As the two entered the pavilion, they attracted many gazes . Some began greeting Jianchuan .

He didn’t say anything and focused on preparing a seat facing the tablet for Li Qiye first, then burning some scented grass for him - a perfect environment for dao searching .

Next, Jianchuan started a fire nearby in order to boil some tea for him .

There was a reason why this youth was chosen by Wind God to serve Li Qiye . Jianchuan was someone who would carry out all orders with sincerity .

He didn’t care that Li Qiye was a fallen king or show any slight because of this . He continued to be meticulous and earnest in his tasks .

His peers became uncomfortable at this sight, especially after seeing Li Qiye’s nonchalant attitude as if this was how it should be . Such arrogance, in their eyes, was showing contempt towards their Second Brother and sect .

“Hmm, does he still think he’s a king and this is War Saint Dynasty? All of this land belongs to him?” Someone voiced their annoyance .

“Right? Only Second Brother is nice enough to do this . I would have walked away long ago . ” A Junior Brother stared at Li Qiye with disdain .
