Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2488

Chapter 2488

Prior to this, Nine-linked Mountains was very lively with busy young cultivators looking around .  

However, the battle at the stone forest silenced the entire place . The once excited and confident youths immediately stagnated without making a sound, nearly shrinking their heads down their necks .

It didn’t take long before the king kills Jinming and Bofan on top of another dozen or so geniuses . He also forced several hundred geniuses and ancestors to kneel before him .

The lucky ones who survived the ordeal found this humiliating . It had engraved deep in their mind for their entire life .

Just imagine, these geniuses and experts have always been arrogant and proud . They always held their head high and even looked down on others . Unfortunately for them, Li Qiye ruthlessly shattered their pride and stomped on their stretching neck, forcing them to lower their head .

This wasn’t easy for them but if they didn’t comply, they would have suffered the same fate as their fallen friends - being cold corpses at the stone forest .

It didn’t matter how strong and arrogant one might be, all were corpses after death, so insignificant and lowly . That’s why they had to lower their head and kneeled before Li Qiye .

This cruel method of his had indeed terrorized everyone . He was a true tyrant this time around, not afraid of murders and brutality .

One question sprung up in everyone’s mind - what the hell happened to the king? How did he become so horrifying overnight?

No one could come up with an answer . Turning from a useless king to a tyrant - he successfully wiped his previous image clean .

“Was he hiding his abilities from the start?” One older expert said .

But upon careful rumination, this didn’t feel right . If he was hiding his skills, it meant that he was immensely powerful and wouldn’t have lost his kingdom without a fight .

Remember, even though Silver Secret and Sun Lengying were gone, he still had the six legions and the general support of War Saint . The five great powers wouldn’t have dared to rebel .

At that particular juncture, he was indeed at the top of authority and had military power . There was no need to hide his abilities at this point . He should have shown them off in order to stabilize his throne .

Instead of this, his actions led to a rebellion and the loss of his throne . There was no way this could have happened if he was actually a master .

One explanation for this was that the guy was insane from start to finish . Instead of seizing the throne with his own abilities, he just let others pushed him off the throne . Who else would do this if they weren’t crazy?

Thus, people found this to be impossible . When someone was at the very top, they would never let others bully them and take over .  

But then why did he suddenly become so strong and brutal? No one understood what the hell he was doing or what had transpired .

Nevertheless, the event at the stone forest changed everyone’s perception of him . He became the biggest mystery and wild card .

“This king was really hiding his abilities?” Jianyao back at Xiang was the first to hear this news from her fellow sect members .  

Her expression changed after getting the full picture and felt that they might have made a wrong move .

“Just who the hell is he?” She saw a fog shrouding her vision .

Prior to this, she thought she had figured out what kind of man he was but now, only a blur remained .

“Did I make a mistake?” She murmured in a daze .

She had a marriage pact with him . Their sect didn’t resort to switching the bride like the Bingchi nor aggressively demanded an annulment .

They chose to just ignore and forget the marriage pact instead . This would allow both sides to back off without any awkwardness .

She wasn’t the only one who chose this plan since the ancestors supported it as well .

Say, if the king was indeed useless, then the plan would be great for them . They didn’t wish to marry a promising disciple to someone like that and especially didn’t want to bet on him since they would lose everything .

But what if the king turned out to be unfathomable? He would become an uncertainty, a wrench in their plan .

“Miss, what should we do now?” The old servant asked for her opinion .

“Return to the sect and ask what the ancestors want to do . ” She pondered before giving an order .

The old servant affirmed and quickly ran back to Calm Lotus Monastery . She then stared outside the window to look at the lake .  

Lucidity King’s era has ended so it was time for their sect to move in . Perhaps it would be just like the past where they exerted great influence into the royal reign .

The best way to obtain this was to support a new king since they have never directly seized the throne . Because of this particular choice, they have remained standing for so long . Dynasties have risen and fallen while they would always be around .

At this moment, the most promising candidates were Tang Hexiang and Eight Formation True Emperor . Calm Lotus would pick one of these two .

However, the current king came out of nowhere and showed his might . Jianyao was in disarray because they were not in control of Li Qiye .

The worst thing about it was that the king didn’t like her at all in spite of her beautiful face and transcending temperament .

So many men would fall in love with her at first sight but he had only disdain for her .

“Too smart for one’s own good… Jianyao… Jianyao, you still think too highly of yourself . ” She sighed with disappointment .

Although the curtains have yet to close, she felt as if she could already guess the final victor in this contest . She realized that she had miscalculated and made a foolish choice despite being wise all her life .


“What?! Bofan was killed?!” Bingchi Hanyu was shocked to hear this .

She had a very good idea of Bofan’s power - a third-level True God that could challenge a fourth-level one through the use of sword formations .

One would be hard-pressed to find a match for him among the young generation outside of Eight Formation True Emperor and his peers .

However, the guy was high-spirited not long ago but now, he was killed by the king back in the stone forest?

“Just how strong is this king?” Her expression became serious .

Her follower began telling her about what had transpired at the party .
