War King’s group heaved a sigh of relief after seeing Ill Lord and others back off .
Their enemy was still Li Qiye so they didn’t want to expend energy on different people, resulting in further complications .
Nevertheless, this retreat still stirred their minds . It couldn’t be just Li Qiye saving them from the prison to justify Ill Lord’s subservience . Maybe their prior speculation was right, that Li Qiye was unfathomable .
The group knew that they couldn’t physically defeat Li Qiye so they placed their hopes on their secret move . It was very frightening and saved them from being destroyed by Lucidity King during his prime .
The secret move emboldened them and also necessitated obtaining the robe . Why? Because once Li Qiye understood the rope, their secret move wouldn’t be as effective and they would be in deep trouble .
Without the threat of this move, he could pressure or destroy their sects whenever . Thus, they would lose everything when there’s a lack of deterrence .
That’s why they could support him to be the king, but he needed to hand over the rope!
“Let me see your ultimate move . ” Li Qiye glanced at the group and smiled .
War King glanced at the other three . In the end, he said: “Your Majesty, we don’t need to fight since we’re all disciples from Nine Secrets . Plus, you and I are from War Saint Dynasty . ”
“Is that so?” Li Qiye smirked at this soft attempt at reconciliation .
“We have no prejudice or animosity towards you . ” War King went on: “It’s just that the rope is the lifeblood of our system . We were merely hasty and anxious since this pertains to the wellbeing of the people, so please forgive us for our impudence . ”
“Go on . ” Li Qiye didn’t bat an eye, acting as if he was just a fun-seeking spectator and this had nothing to do with him .
“We want to support and obey you with full loyalty . No sect in the world will say no to you, Your Majesty . ” War King continued .
The crowd exchanged glances . Some started thinking that War King wanted a truce .
“But only under the condition that I hand over the rope . ” Li Qiye chuckled .
“Your Majesty, you can’t put it that way . Nine Immortals Rope is a peerless artifact, virtually invincible . Such an item means everything to the system so it should be carefully safeguarded . The ancestors of the world like us wish to uphold this responsibility . The rope itself still belongs to you and when you need it, you can still summon it . ” War King elaborated .
“Your Majesty, Your willingness to concede the supervision of the rope will show your selflessness and love for the system . This will only make people want to follow you, including us . At that point, Calm Lotus Monastery from top to bottom would be more than willing to die for you . ” Calm Lotus Supreme Ancestor joined in .
“Yes, my Bingchi Clan will plead our allegiance as well . ” Juezun stated his stance: “The millions of disciples from our clan will obey you even if it means marching towards our death . ”
“My Myriad Formation Kingdom is ready to obey . ” This respective ancestor revealed his attitude .
The crowd started talking among themselves .
One murmured: “This doesn’t really seem like a bad deal . The rope will just be under other people’s supervision, trading that for full authority? That’s good . ”
The more insightful ancestors sneered . So what if the king had the guise of full autonomy? Their ultimate move would always be a threat to him, similar to how it used to be during Lucidity King’s reign .
“Your Majesty, as you can see, you lose nothing but gain the obedience of the world, allowing you to start a new age of prosperity, surpassing everyone before you and will be surpassed by no one after you . Your name will forever shine in the historical annals, what say you, Your Majesty?” War King tempted Li Qiye .
The most important thing for them right now was to get Li Qiye to hand the rope over before he could comprehend it completely . If he were to understand it, then everything would be too late .
They would have no place left in the world - all of their sects could turn to ashes at any moment .
Lucidity King naturally thought about destroying the five great powers in the past in order to create a supreme dynasty never seen before in Nine Secrets . They felt that Li Qiye would have the same ambition .
Li Qiye smiled and said: “I don’t care about winning the hearts of the people or their obedience, same with your loyalty and what-no . It’s fine for anyone to disobey me because I’ll just flatten them afterward . That’s not hard at all . ”
He then stretched: “Alright, I hope you all spoke enough to get everything out of your system . No more wasting time, prostrate now or lose your head . ”
His opponents’ expression changed, realizing that a truce was impossible .
“You think you can sweep through the entire world, that no one in Nine Secrets can stop you?” Juezun shouted .
“Who’s going to stop me? I just need a few punches to destroy ants like you . ” Li Qiye looked at them and said .
“Brat, I want to see how you will take us down with a few punches!” The furious Myriad Formation Supreme Ancestor lost his cool and roared .
He has been restraining himself for the overarching goal despite the irreconcilable feud . The attempt has failed so he reached forward and summoned a diagram with metallic ringing .
“Clank! Clank! Clank!” Pieces of divine metals appeared around his arm .
“Boom!” The plates and the diagram combined, resulting in an eruption of flame .
“Buzz . ” A gigantic portal emerged with runes painting the sky .
A great hand materialized from the runic portal, carrying a majestic immortal radiance .
The suppression of this palm could seal an entire world . Everything would crumble like dried branches .
The crowd was absolutely horrified by this technique .
“Child’s play . ” Li Qiye also reached forward and grasped the world in his palm .
“Bam!” Li Qiye grabbed this descending palm and dragged it to the ground in a merciless manner .
This, in turn, swept the supreme ancestor from Myriad Formation Kingdom off his feet . He was smashed against the ground, vomiting blood everywhere .
“Ah!” His runic arm was then ripped apart by Li Qiye; blood gushing everywhere .
This scene was too much for the spectators to take .
A supreme ancestor couldn’t handle a single move before losing his arm - such a tyrannical and overbearing showing of strength .
“Take this, junior!” Juezun roared . The floating weapon above him, Allbreak, surged forward and turned into a massive citadel .
“Boom!” Juezun pushed the citadel straight at Li Qiye with both hands .
It was as heavy as the high heaven on top of being pushed by Juezun’s considerable force . This combination became immensely destructive .
