Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2451

Chapter 2451: 2451

Li Qiye couldn’t help but smile while staring at this thick and tough dao fruit . He gave it the name, “Acorn” . It contained massive and overbearing power .

“Time for the third dao fruit, but this will be tough . ” Li Qiye murmured: “It will open a new beginning once ripened, but every fruit after will need a more potent area to support them . ”

Once all three fruits were ripened, this presented a challenge for both Li Qiye and the Primordial Tree .

In the beginning, Li Qiye speculated that once the tree matures into a sky-blotting creation, it would have a total of twelve dao fruits .

It wasn’t going to be easy . The more dao fruits, the greater the pressure and challenge . In fact, adding one more fruit was doubling the stress .

After all, from birth to maturity, not to mention the previous fruits, these things required a massive amount of primordial energy . Adding one more fruit meant requiring more supply .

The tree itself needed to grow as well . At this moment, these powers and life relied on Li Qiye’s personal power as the fuel .

In order to open a new cultivation system, suppressing the old world wasn’t enough . One needed enough force to open a new world .

Massive energy, ability to withstand the stress, and an immovable dao heart were necessary for this process .

Otherwise, one wouldn’t be able to handle the alternation of the old and the new world . Their dao heart would crumble along with their grand dao . The frames of these worlds would be destroyed, resulting in the death of the cultivator since they would turn to ashes .

Perhaps death wasn’t even the worst outcome of this endeavor . If the dao heart were to falter and succumb to the evil path, that would be the most terrifying consequence .

Breaking the old and starting the new required a daring decisiveness only found in the apex existences in each epoch . However, when these apex masters fell to the evil path, they would start a disaster, robbing their epoch of light .

Nevertheless, Li Qiye remained calm despite the frightful pressure mounting on him . His dao heart remained resolute .

From the start of time, eras came and went, epochs replaced one another . In the river of time, there have been geniuses with insane talents and brave overlords . These beings were incredible . The current prodigies right now were insignificant in comparison, like a speck of dust .

Li Qiye naturally couldn’t compare to these beings in terms of talents . The only thing he had was an immovable dao heart - his greatest possession and power .  

It didn’t matter how tough the road was in the future, he could move forward, step by step . No problems could stop him; no disasters could hope to slow him down .

Li Qiye - the man with the eternally unwavering dao heart .

Some time passed before he returned from his meditation . Though he had recalled the tree, some of its light still shone upon him - bringing new hope and a new dawn for the world .

At this moment, just a single wave of his hand contained an epoch-crushing power .

The light slowly dispersed and he hid his terrifying aura . He returned to the origin just like a simple and natural stone, devoid of any carving .

He smiled, realizing that only the true overlords could see through his mysteries at this point .

When he walked outside, Jianchuan has been waiting . The youth happily walked up and quietly said: “Your Majesty, the sect master and fellow ancestors are here to see you . ”

“Oh? Look like a big crowd . ” Li Qiye chuckled after hearing this .

“Quite a few, please be lenient, Your Majesty . ” Jianchuan hesitated before softly speaking .

Li Qiye leisurely smiled: “Sounds like something will happen then . ”

“Well… I’m only speculating . ” Jianchuan smiled wryly: “The great ancestor is still at the capital, so I don’t really know what will happen . ”

Despite saying so, as the person responsible for intelligence in Godstep, he naturally knew what was going on but didn’t dare to reveal it . He was powerless anyway .

Li Qiye didn’t care too much if the youth didn’t dare to speak . The two of them quickly made their way into the main hall .

The room was full of people - the influential ancestors sitting down . Many important disciples were standing behind them, crossing their arms in front of their chest .

All eyes fell on Li Qiye instantly - some were disdainful, others sneered, a few were simply curious…

“Your Majesty, please excuse us for interrupting your session . ” Heavenly Crane Enlightened Being cupped his fist and smiled .

Heavenly Crane still sat down on his chair, not bothering to stand up .

In the past, they would be on their knees to greet the king of Nine Secrets right now . Unfortunately, because of recent events, they no longer give a damn about this fallen king . Even the disciples here looked down on him .

Li Qiye sat down and briefly observed the crowd . Splendorous Saintess and White Crane Young Noble were present as well, standing next to the sect master .

The saintess stared coldly at him with clear contempt in her eyes . Meanwhile, the young noble sneered, trying to hide his murderous intent .

This was beyond Jianchuan’s control so he stood quietly to the side . A third-generation disciple like him couldn’t speak before the sect master and ancestors .

“Everyone’s here . ” Li Qiye lazily said .

“Your Majesty, you have been staying here for a long time but the ancestors never got a chance to see you . This is why everyone is here today . ” Heavenly Crane smiled .

In fact, a few ancestors have seen Li Qiye already during the coronation since they tagged along with Wind God . Of course, Li Qiye never gave a damn about them, not to mention the massive crowd back then . Who could remember certain individuals?

“This is Cloudflash Ancestor, the fastest in our sect . This is Solitary Dragon Ancestor, responsible for dao teaching . This is Skywalk Ancestor, he is…” The sect master introduced the ancestors one by one with a smile .

“Alright, no need for such needless courtesy . ” Li Qiye interrupted him with a wave: “No need to pretend in front of me, just say what you have to say, everyone is busy . ”

The ancestors didn’t expect this; some put on an unfriendly expression . Meanwhile, the disciples didn’t try to hide their anger .

These ancestors were all prestigious big shots in all of Imperial, not just Nine Secrets .

Heavenly Crane was giving Li Qiye face by introducing them yet the guy dared to act so rudely? It was a blatant insult .

How could a downtrodden dog needing their protection act arrogantly like this before them?

The atmosphere became tense instantly . The previous cordial pretense disappeared .

“Well…” Heavenly Crane’s smile slowly went away . He then nodded towards the saintess .

“We are here today for one thing only . Just one demand, hand over the marriage pact . It will be nothing but beneficial for you . ” The saintess said coldly .
