“Take it, I can handle this much for the bride token . ” Li Qiye casually threw out five treasures . Sure enough, their imperial aura permeated the area .
A jewel, armor, divine garment… all five were resplendent with a distinctive aura .
“Imperial treasures…” The disciples outside became tumultuous . They stood on their toes and stretched their neck in order to get a better view .
Although Godstep Sect could come up with similar treasures, they couldn’t just throw them away in such a careless manner, treating like them cabbages .
After a while, the sect master and the ancestors calmed down then glanced at each other . They didn’t expect for Li Qiye to be so generous so they didn’t know what to say, only standing there awkwardly .
This request was to get Li Qiye to back off on top of probing him out .
If Li Qiye couldn’t come up with this bride token, then their sect could annul the marriage without any problem . It would no longer be them breaking their promise but rather Li Qiye’s inability to marry the saintess .
All of them realized something . If Li Qiye could do this to items considered great treasures by others, it meant that he had many more than just five .
This naturally startled them . Lucidity’s treasury must have been incredible . Though he was dead and War Saint was done for, his treasury must have been inherited by Li Qiye .
Greed appeared in their eyes now, just imagining the potential of their sect if they could obtain this treasury .
They would be able to take another step forward, gaining new resources and ace cards against the other four powers when vying for the world .
“No, I will not marry!” Splendorous Saintess stepped out and protected: “Not even for one hundred imperial treasures, I’m not a piece of merchandise! I don’t agree with this transaction!”
“Is that so? I’ve given you the bride token, from now on, you are my woman . ” Li Qiye leisurely said while staring at her .
“In your dream!” The saintess barked back with a derisive stare: “You can have the entire royal treasury, a million imperial treasures, and I still wouldn’t marry a useless fool like you!”
Her existing-prejudice regarding him rendered her unable to accept this marriage . How could a proud heaven’s favorite like her care for this piece of trash, let alone marrying him?
“Let her come warm my bed tonight . ” Li Qiye stared at the saintess while rubbing his chin, amused . He then turned towards the sect master: “I will have fun tonight educating this girl to be more obedient . ”
The saintess’ expression became extremely ugly; a fire was about to spew from her eyes . The disciples outside were outraged as well after hearing their goddess being insulted!
“Watch your foul mouth!” White Crane Young Noble angrily shouted .
“Oh? You’re against it? Only a woman - it is her honor to be on my bed and being trained by me . ” Li Qiye lazily said .
“You court death!” White Crane obviously had a crush on the saintess so how could he take this lying down? Unable to swallow this anger, he took out his sword and aimed it straight for Li Qiye’s throat .
He was aware of Li Qiye’s heaven-defying treasures so he needed to make this first move count, not giving the guy a chance to retaliate .
The lightning-fast thrust made the upper echelon stare at each other . They didn’t try to stop him or even shout for him to stop . They thought that it wouldn’t be a bad thing if Li Qiye were to die right now .
They could see that his cultivation was negligible and that he only relied on the treasures left behind by Lucidity . As long as the young noble could deliver the fatal blow first, Li Qiye would never have the chance to take out a treasure .
“Clank!” The thrust was fast to the point of being imperceptible by the disciples outside .
“Bang!” His sword instantly collapsed to the astonishment of the crowd . Before they could recover, Li Qiye had caught the young noble, lifting him up in the air by the neck .
Everything happened so quickly . Everyone didn’t know what the hell was going on or how Li Qiye did it, only the result .
“Mere ants daring to prance in front of Li Qiye . ” Li Qiye nonchalantly said: “I’m only here to kill the boredom and play with you all, to actually think that I’m weak, hah . ”
“Poof!” The young noble got crushed into a mist of blood . He never had the chance to react, let alone beg for help .
“No!” The disciples in the sect screamed .
No one expected this sudden reversal, not even the ancestors and Heavenly Crane .
“Clank! Clank! Clank!” The shocked elders instantly stood up and unsheathed their weapons, glaring intensely at Li Qiye .
“Oh? Want to go together, that’s fine, I’ll see what you all can do . ” Li Qiye gave them a quick glance and smirked .
“Brat, you’re too arrogant!” Heavenly Crane had a cold expression, same with his tone: “Daring to kill in our sect, you think we can’t do anything?”
He no longer addressed Li Qiye as “His Majesty” and had a murderous flash in his eyes . Though White Crane was his disciple, the youth was also like a son to him . Revenge was in order .
Li Qiye didn’t care for them at all: “Godstep is nothing more than an ant nest to me, can’t reach the apex . ”
“Ignorant fool!” One ancestor roared . With a loud explosion, he swung his huge hammer straight for Li Qiye .
“Boom!” Before the actual impact, the entire hall has already collapsed from the force .
“No big deal . ” Li Qiye smiled and raised his hand .
A powerful shockwave vibrated in the air . The hammer struck an item and was repelled .
“The Null Slate!” Many were astounded after seeing the item in Li Qiye’s hand .
Heavenly Crane and the ancestors gasped before staring at each other . Not even in their dream would they expect Li Qiye to summon the Null Slate on their ancestral peak so easily .
Ever since Godstep True Emperor left it there, no one has been able to move it in the slightest . But now, Li Qiye just needed to raise his hand and the slate from the faraway peak came to him - simply astonishing .
