Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2536

Chapter 2536

Calm Lotus Monastery, the Bingchi, and Myriad Formation Kingdom; three supreme ancestors from these sects have appeared and astonished the crowd .

Only the two from Waterfront and Godstep were missing .

They have rarely shown themselves in the past since they represented the highest echelon in Nine Secrets . Their appearance would mean something big was happening .

“Calm Lotus is here too . ” A surprised spectator murmured .

It was one thing for the first two ancestors to come out, especially the one from the kingdom . After all, the emperor was killed just now . Moreover, they had no other choice either since they had an irreconcilable feud with the king .

It was understandable for the Bingchi as well . They were on the same side as the kingdom so they needed to work together .

This wasn’t the case for Calm Lotus . This particular sect had no big conflict with Li Qiye . Though Qin Jianyao didn’t carry out her marriage promise, she wasn’t the only one . Plus, it didn’t mean that there wasn’t a chance for them to rethink the marriage situation in the future .

They have never outright denied or refused the proposal, so it could be said that this sect had the least serious feud with the king .

But now, their ancestor had appeared as well, contrary to everyone’s expectation .

Jianyao herself was shocked since she had sent back reports about the king to the sect . She recommended to never oppose the king . In fact, it was fine to submit in order to stay alive .

She thought the ancestors would agree with her opinion . Who would have thought that their supreme ancestor would join up with his two peers?

She had no idea why they made this decision . What had bewildered them?

As someone who has always kept calm regardless of the situation, she found herself lost . This alliance ruined all of her plans .

“Clank! Clank!” Suddenly, the sound of a bell echoed across the system .

Everyone looked over towards the direction of the noise .

“It’s Skywrap Mountain, the bell in the imperial city . ” People were surprised: “Who is ringing it? Is this an official decree?”

Many then turned towards Li Qiye after hearing this . Though he was chased away from his throne, most people still thought that the royal rule of Nine Secrets still belongs to Lucidity King’s branch .

The city was currently occupied by the various legions but they were just soldiers and didn’t represent the royal authority - not qualified to give orders to the world .

Who was ringing the bell right now? To have the courage to do so without permission from the king .

“It’s not an official decree . ” An ancestor carefully listened to the bell and remembered: “This is the regal bell . It hasn’t been used for a long time . ”

“What’s that?” The young ones have never heard of this bell .

“It’s the bell that represents authority . ” The startled ancestor explained: “This bell has always been in War Saint Dynasty but kept by the Sacred Cabinet . They’re the only ones who can ring it for a declaration to the rest of the world . ”

“Sacred Cabinet?” People have heard of this name before: “The one that got destroyed by Lucidity King?”

Though few rarely brought it up, many in Nine Secrets still knew about it .

Previously, the kings of War Saint Dynasty didn’t necessarily have total control over the system . They only served as spokesmen; the ones truly in charge were the ancestors from Sacred Cabinet .

The cabinet made decisions about great events and future plans . The kings normally only announced them to the world .

This lasted until the reign of Lucidity King . He decided to abolish the cabinet, resulting in a bloody war . After his victory, the members of the cabinet vanished without a trace . This institution ceased to exist afterward .

“This bell hasn’t rung since the disappearance of the cabinet . ” One ancestor said: “The late king’s words became the symbol of authority . Who would have thought that this sound would come back now after so long?”

“Is the cabinet trying to rise again?” An expert became interested .

Rumor has it that they have been eliminated by Lucidity King but the symbolic bell signaled their return .

“Is this a warning to the three supreme ancestors or do they have other plans?” Some glanced over at Li Qiye .

After all, the king represented the imperial rule while the cabinet was also from War Saint Dynasty . In theory, they should be on the same side as him .

“I’m not sure, there is some long-running animosity here . ” A whisperer stated his mind .

The group agreed . After all, the cabinet has always been in charge of War Saint until Lucidity King . Meanwhile, the new king was also from Lucidity’s branch . Would they stand on his side?

Most felt that this was impossible . This particular feud couldn’t be dropped that easily .

“Rumble!” Back in the distant Skywrap Mountain, a great peak seemed to be opening with light as dazzling as the contents of a splendorous treasury .

Finally, a pavilion started floating to the sky, shrouded in divine radiance . It looked ancient and seemingly cast from bronze .

It poured down dao laws filled with chaos and true energy . This building resembled a stately palace with a majestic aura .

“That’s Sacred Cabinet . ” Many recognized the place .

“Why is it showing up now?” Another asked, causing the crowd to exchange glances .

They didn’t show up during the siege at the imperial palace nor when the king was chased away from his throne . They didn’t show up when the rest of the great powers competed for authority .

Logically, if they wanted to compete, they should have shown up sooner and deliver a decisive blow . Choosing this particular moment seemed to be premeditated .

“Maybe they’re here for that Nine Immortals Rope . ” One ancestor pondered carefully before coming up with this .

They felt that the cabinet wasn’t here for political reasons . Only that one rope was worthy of their appearance .

“Rumble!” The world quaked as the three ancestors and the cabinet started heading for Nine-linked Mountains .

They each occupied a different cardinal direction, seemingly wanting to surround Li Qiye .

One step from the ancestors took them ten million miles . They left behind footsteps in the sky that could never be erased .

As for the cabinet, it crushed space and traveled through ten million miles with a peerless speed .

“They’re coming for the king . ” Everyone could tell that they were trying to block all escape paths from the king, wanting to surround him .
