Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2517

Chapter 2517: 2517

Ma Mingchun dropped to his knees and wept quietly . He had lost his only son and now, all of his brothers that have accompanied him through life-and-death on the battlefields . They trusted him with their lives but he had failed them .

Back outside the Bingchi, he gave a single command and these men instantly changed allegiance . Today, still one command of his and they were willing to fight the king to the very end .

The first was justifiable since it affected the future of the legion . However, fighting the king was the result of a personal vendetta .

Now, his brothers have died because of him, turned into bloody mists . There were no corpses to bury .

Mingchun no longer had the face to see them, ashamed from letting them down and from letting their families down .

“One might be able to survive an act of god, but not a self-brought calamity . ” Li Qiye said insipidly .

“Kill me, kill me if you dare!” The man was full of tears and screamed at Li Qiye; his hair had turned white .

He wanted death since it would be salvation . Living was too painful right now .

“You think I would spare you after reaching this point?” Li Qiye smiled: “Although I do want to see you suffer for a lifetime, I’m not in the mood to wait . No mercy to those who deserve death!”

With that, he raised his finger, showing a gray energy floating by the tip - clearly the evil curse from earlier . He shot it straight for Mingchun’s heart .

“Ah!” The man bellowed; his face twisting with pain . However, he didn’t roll on the ground but stood proudly while suffering .

This pain served as atonement and lessened his guilt .

“Buzz…” The buzzing was quiet but loud enough not to be drowned out by the screams .

His chest ignited into a fire and eventually turned ashen . This began to spread all over his body .

‘Ah!!” The shrill screams continued . Everyone could hear it .

The thing meant to kill Li Qiye had targeted Mingchun instead . His cries still didn’t earn him the sympathy of the crowd . This pain wasn’t much compared to the death of the entire legion .

He was the one who created this curse so why should people feel sorry for him?

“Ah…” Finally, his true fate has been burned completely, resulting in death .

The evil curse burned his body into ashes scattering to the wind . It was as if he had never existed .

The world came to a silent still; all became peaceful with reticent breathing from the crowd for they were astonished and speechless .

Li Qiye gently flicked his finger and a holy light flashed .

“Pop!” The evil curse that had ended Ma Mingchun also became refined and destroyed .

Li Qiye sat back down on his throne; his holy light had dispersed completely . He casually rested his legs on the golden table, as nonchalant as ever .

He became an ordinary-looking person again . No, actually, he was back to being the perverted and useless king, at least in appearance .

However, who would dare look down on him right now . In fact, when people looked up to steal glimpses, they tried to be as quiet as possible as if disturbing him was a great offense .

Jianyao wasn’t surprised at this outcome . Everything has been determined; Ma Mingchun’s resistance was simply futile .

“Anyone else got something to say?” Li Qiye lazily asked .

Given his current lackadaisical and sleepy appearance, no one would believe that this dispirited man was the one who killed Tang Hexiang, Ma Mingchun, and an entire legion . Yes, a useless king fitted his current image much more .

No one dared to utter the word, “no” . Existences like them were insignificant insects . Just one stomp of his would crush them in totality .

“In that case, start kneeling . ” Li Qiye glanced at the crowd and said .

This made them exchange glances . Many people actually wanted to kneel, but being the first to do so was a bit embarrassing .

“Long live the king . ” Jianyao broke the hesitation by bowing her head, her clear voice comforted the crowd .

Though she got on her knees to kowtow, she was still a perfect fairy, a visual feast .

“Long live the king . ” Everyone quickly prostrated to show their submission .

Even Jianyao had shown her allegiance, so why should they bother maintaining their face? They paled in comparison to her prestige and status anyway .

They kneeled with bated breath, waiting for him to make a decision .

Previously during his coronation, some of them have come to the imperial palace to greet him . Of course, they weren’t actually convinced by him and did so out of fear of Sun Lengying and Silver Secret Legion .

This was no longer the case today . This showing of reverence was all due to the king himself .

Furthermore, they trembled with fear, afraid of the king’s fury . This might end with a massacre and the end of their sects .

They felt as if they have returned to Lucidity King’s era . No, even worse .

The whole thing felt like a dream . When the king was chased out of his throne, so many people looked down on him, calling him a piece of trash . Today, they prostrated, afraid of invoking his wrath and punishment . This sudden change seemed surreal and unbelievable .

“This is the feeling of being shown disdain . ” Li Qiye looked at them and chuckled: “I gave you all a chance to be independent, an era of self-rule, but all of you didn’t cherish it . It looks like your fate is to be ruled by others . ”

This was a cruel slap on everyone’s face, causing them to feel hot . Of course, they didn’t show any anger any were actually thanking heaven that the king wasn’t angry .

“Rise, I pardon your crimes . ” Li Qiye waved his hand and said .

“Thank you for your benevolence . ” The crowd heaved a sigh of relief and realized how much they were sweating during the wait .

That wave of his hand could have made heads roll on the ground . Moreover, they wouldn’t be able to resist at all .

The lack of punishment made the crowd ecstatic . Some on the ground even kowtowed several more times to show their gratitude for this imperial kindness .
