The destruction of the progenitorial image still left everyone in despair . Many couldn’t get up as if their strength has been sapped completely .
War King and his allies felt the same way . Their legs gave in as they dropped to the ground, powerless and paralyzed .
They stared at Li Qiye looming above, unable to lift a single finger .
Even Wild Bull and the others were paled . They have experienced his power before and knew that he would win regardless of War King’s ultimate move .
However, to personally witness the takedown of a progenitorial image was an entirely different story . They became frozen just like everyone else while feeling an invisible grip on their throat .
Their prior assessment that he was at the progenitor level, but this assessment wasn’t as shocking as seeing him in action .
“You can’t be much stronger than this . ” Ill Lord murmured .
Li Qiye turned his gaze towards the defeated combatants on the ground: “Your ultimate move isn’t that great . ”
The ashen group opened their mouth but no words could come out . They have suffered a complete defeat with no chance of rising again . Death was coming for them; destruction for their sects .
Everyone watched with bated breath, waiting to see how Li Qiye would deal with them .
“I’ll send you off now . ” Li Qiye chuckled and pointed one finger at them .
The group has already given up on struggling . They closed their eyes since resistance was futile . Plus, they have already expended all of their energy on the ultimate move and had nothing left .
“Pop!” The group turned into mists of blood with no chance to scream .
The mists eventually scattered to the wind . These powerful beings have fallen and didn’t put up much of a fight .
Myriad Formation Kingdom and Calm Lotus Monastery became quiet just like the rest of the system . Its inhabitants became speechless, overwhelmed with dread .
Even the winds subsided, not wanting to bother the great existence .
“This is the end . This contest for authority was just a game . ” Li Qiye smiled .
The match has been decided . No one would dare to oppose him from now on . The throne was his for the taking once more .
“How boring . ” He stretched before slowly landing down to Great Desolate Mountain .
Everyone was still on their knees to show their submission, not daring to disturb him .
“Your Majesty . ” Liu Chuqing happily said and rushed forward into his embrace .
She prayed every day while he was inside the prison and was the happiest person to see his return . Anxiety no longer haunted her .
“You’re back…” She whispered intimately while weeping . She was afraid of not seeing him again - that the prison would trap him for an eternity . Her tears wetted both her eyebrows and his shirt .
“Silly girl, no place in this world can trap me . ” He patted her soft hair and smiled .
“I, I really thought you couldn’t come back . ” She put on a smile .
“I had to because you were waiting for me here . ” He said .
She immediately turned red, looking like an innocent girl in love .
“Aa…” She cried out in surprise because he lifted her up and began to carry her into the stone hall .
“Your Majesty…” Embarrassment overtook her: “People are watching…”
“So what?” He domineeringly said and continued on his way .
She buried her head deep in his chest, flustered, and didn’t dare to look at anyone else .
Once she looked up again, they were already inside .
“What, what are we doing?” She became bashful because his hand was touching her buttocks while her legs wrapped around his waist .
She wanted to jump off but his grip was too tight .
“You tell me . ” He smiled while lifting her exquisitely-sculpted chin .
“But the sun is still up…” She didn’t dare to meet his gaze . Her body trembled along with her voice .
“And?” He gave her a kiss .
“Mmm…” She found strength leaving her body, causing her to limp into his chest…
A hush fell over the system after the end of the battle . People were still prostrating in Nine-linked Mountains and only got up a long time after Li Qiye was gone .
One person stood up and looked at the sky: “Looks like the king will have another coronation soon…”
His senior immediately reprimanded him with a slap to the back of the head: “Nonsense! The land has always been under the rule of the king, so there’s no need for another coronation . Those fools simply overestimated themselves with the rebellion!”
“Yes, every sect will submit to His Majesty . ” An ancestor solemnly stated his loyalty .
Even a fool could see how suicidal it was to go against the king right now .
“From now on, the five powers and War Saint Dynasty no longer exist, only the king . ” A different ancestor said with reverence .
He shuddered after publicly voicing this opinion upon facing the reality of things .
Because of the king, the other powers became insignificant . No one else would have any say in his administration . He became the most supreme existence in the system with full authority that surpasses Lucidity King’s reign . He could do whatever he wanted now with impunity .
