Her words carried significant clout as the fiancee of the emperor . It showed that the emperor's ambition for the throne .
Everyone knew that he was indeed qualified to compete for it, but declaring his intention in public was another issue altogether .
Tang Hexiang snorted after hearing this but didn’t express anything else . He was naturally unhappy as the other rival .
“A bit interesting . ” Li Qiye smiled and glanced at her: “Looks like you are very confident in your fiance, but the more hope, the bigger the disappointment . ”
“You think you can amount to anything?” She coldly stared at him: “Tianzhi is worthy of trust and confidence . I’m sure he won’t let me down . ”
“Why do you think I’m not worthy of trust and support from others? Just because everyone says that I’m a useless king, that’s why your clan sent a fake princess for the marriage?” He smiled .
“Cousin Yingjian is more than good enough for you . ” She said .
“So I’m not worthy of you?” He replied: “What you’re trying to say is only that Eight Formation guy is a good match for you . ”
“That’s right . ” She said decisively: “Self-awareness and knowing when to give up are virtues . ”
Since she was so certain of the outcomes, she no longer tried to make excuses and directly answered .
“I have a good idea . ” He rubbed his chin and leisurely said: “How about I kill Eight Formation True Emperor and make you a servant? That might be very interesting, what do you think?”
Her voice turned colder: “I, Bingchi Hanyu, am neither arrogant nor unduly humble . My husband is a True Emperor; only a true dragon soaring in the horizon can win me…”
Of course, she was qualified to be proud . She had a noble bloodline as the princess of the Bingchi . Her talents were impeccable and her looks left no room for criticism . An ordinary man was indeed not worthy of her .
Since they were formally engaged, she had no problem standing up for Eight Formation True Emperor .
“I know you are proud, but there are no women I can’t conquer as long as I will so . ” Li Qiye interrupted her .
“The nonsense ravings of a lunatic . ” Hanyu snorted: “You think you are more excellent than a true emperor? More than a rare genius? What are you going to conquer me with?”
In the current Nine Secrets, Eight Formation True Emperor was the only man she would marry and serve . Someone like the king could only daydream about having her .
“We’re done here, I’ve made up my mind . ” Li Qiye waved his hand: “Just wait till I’m done here and I’ll start training you . Don’t worry, I’ll teach you how to be a good woman . I suppose it can be fun since you are indeed an attractive girl . ”
Hanyu turned red after hearing such vulgarity . She was still an innocent girl and wasn’t used to this obscenity .
“Hmph! You better clean up your mouth!” One of the two old men behind Hanyu became annoyed and uttered coldly .
“Asking for a fight? Come together then for that is my purpose here today . You two will be the first victims . ” Li Qiye laughed and said .
The two old men became furious after being looked down upon like this since they were stronger than Yang Bofan and Ma Jinming and commanded respect .
“Elders, no need to be angry . ” Hanyu stopped them before they could start: “Tianzhi is coming soon, let him do it . ”
The two men scowled and slowly got back behind her once more .
“Alright, since everyone is here today . ” Li Qiye looked around and said: “Time to settle some stuff, who will be the first? Gotta have some courage if you want the throne instead of just dreaming while hiding in your nest like a turtle in its shell . ”
He glanced towards Hexiang after saying this, making his point as clear as day .
All eyes were on Hexiang, aware of his ambition for the throne . However, Li Qiye was the only rightful king . Would Hexiang have the courage to challenge him right now?
Despite his unfriendly expression, he wasn’t in a rush to fight: “What should come will, no need to rush . ”
“Although I’m not interested in being a king or whatever, I do want to have a match with you since you’re so full of confidence . ” The saber saint smiled and stepped up instead .
“Senior Brother . ” Chuqing unhappily said, nearly stomping her foot on the ground after seeing the saber saint challenging Li Qiye .
“Silly girl, don’t worry, I only want to teach him a lesson, not his life . ”
“That’s an impudent comment but I’ll spare your life out of consideration for Chuqing . ” Li Qiye looked at him and said .
“Such arrogance, I haven’t seen such a conceited person like you in a long time . ” The saint’s saber intent slightly intensified while his eyes narrowed .
He has traveled the world and competed with the top emperors as their equal . This showed the guy’s status and power .
“Saber saint, you’re too eager . ” Jianyao interrupted with a kingdom-toppling smile - one elegant enough to immediately ease the tension .
She continued: “Your Majesty, we’re not here today for political struggle and killing, our goal is to search for the dao and reach the origin . ”
“I do have to admit that you’re capable and have proper rhetoric despite certain shortcomings . What are you trying to search for that the origin then?”
Jianyao wasn’t angry and kept a humble attitude: “I have cultivated Jie and Lie but they’re not the original versions, only what the ancestors have found through research . That’s why today, I wish to feel the heaven and earth, hoping to combine the profundities of the grand dao in order to search for the truth . ”
“That’s a realistic goal, not impossible . ” Li Qiye chuckled and said .
“What are you searching for then, Your Majesty?” She smiled once more . This appearance of her has won over the hearts of so many youths and incited jealousy .
Keep in mind that though she has always been polite with everyone, she also maintained an unreachable distance . A smile like this was quite rare .
Alas, Li Qiye completely ignored her beauty and said: “The nine words are so easily obtained to me, no need to search for them . I’m here for only one thing . ”
All eyes widened after hearing these unreasonably arrogant words . The nine words were the apex merit laws of Nine Secrets . So many people searched for them yet few were fortunate enough to learn .
But Li Qiye said that he could obtain them so easily? No one could take this seriously .
“Hmph . ” Tang Hexiang snorted: “There are few cultivators of the nine words in all of history . You need to have a limit when boasting . No one can use the word easy when talking about learning the nine words . ” His expression was full of disdain .
This was indeed the truth . He had trained in the word, Zhe, and understood how profound and esoteric they were .
“That’s because you’re stupid . ” Li Qiye casually retorted .
The constant disrespect only made Hexiang want to kill Li Qiye even more .
“Hmph, I don’t care how smart you are, you can’t comprehend all nine, just cultivating one is amazing enough, those who have learned two are extremely brilliant…” Hanyu said .
“Extremely brilliant? More like idiots . ” Li Qiye interrupted her again: “Are you trying to laud your accomplishment by having one word or Eight Formation True Emperor?”
“I don’t need to laud his talents and achievements . ” She struck back: “His Zhen is at grand completion, allowing him to seize the fortune of the heaven to learn the Immortal Slaying Ancient Formation . He doesn’t need to boast or act arrogant like you - not even possessing the two words from War Saint Dynasty yet claim that it is so easy to learn all nine . ”
