Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2567

Chapter 2567: 2567

“Buzz . ” A portal suddenly appeared in the sky above the bottomless pit . A person space-traveled into this area .

She slightly grimaced after noticing the disappearance of White Orchid .

Anyone else would certainly be frightened, realizing the looming danger . Escaping should be the first reaction .

However, the girl was quite bold and began to descend down the pit .

She quickly made it to Li Qiye’s position and found his existence surprising . She thought she was the first one to get here, not expecting someone even earlier .

She carefully looked at Li Qiye, wanting to get a good read on him . Meanwhile, he naturally did the same . Of course, his stare was much more invasive and rude, at least in the eyes of others .

Her beauty deterred others from looking straight at her, overwhelmed with both admiration and respect .

Her features were exquisitely sculpted like a work of art . One would be hard-pressed to notice any flaw . Her eyes were as bright as the stars at night, shining like the luster of gems .

Eyebrows resembling the far mountains with a unique charm to them - instilling a deep impression to any spectator .

This was a transcending beauty . Jianyao had a similar aura, but she gave the feeling of being otherworldly . On the other hand, this girl was real .

She looked like a piece of jade deep in a valley - precious and flawless, an ultimate treasure .

She wore a sapphire blue dress with a white moon embroidery . The bottom spread out like a peacock tail but not in a gaudy manner for it was full of elegance .

Her aura commanded attention even more than her beauty since she looked like a dominating ruler .

This particular aura, in theory, should be out of place but it wasn’t the case here .

This girl looked ready to fight whenever and wherever . One should describe her as being decisive and determined .

She purposely hid her aura yet each of her actions still looked as dominating as ever . This was indicative of her strength .

A duality of conflicting traits that didn’t seem out of place, just enough to demand respect and fear .

The two of them gauged each other . She found Li Qiye to be an ordinary man wearing a cheap robe . Someone like him could just disappear in a crowd .

Upon closer inspection, she found him to be unfathomable, especially his eyes containing an entire galaxy .

“Dao Brother, my name is Yuzhen, may I ask for yours?” Her voice was clear and pleasant .  

She became curious . Where did this unfathomable youth come from during her isolated cultivation? She should know every master in Imperial Lineage but she had no impression of him despite racking her brains .

“Li Qiye . ” He smiled .

“Ah, we’re from the same branch then, my last name is also Li . ” She smiled faintly, enough to swoon any man .

“It’s a type of faith . ” Li Qiye casually responded, not paying too much attention .

His attitude perplexed her even more because few in Imperial didn’t recognize her name .  

After finding out, they would feel various emotions such as fear, admiration, reverence…

This was the first time she saw this reaction after stating her name .

“Dao Brother, do you know what evil is at play here?” She composed herself and asked .

He shook his head: “Hard to say right now since it’s too early to conclude . Of course, this has been at work for a while now, we’ll see some clues soon . ”

“You mean that there is a sinister plan behind this?” She became surprised .

“Not to that level, it’s just a case of a turtledove taking over the nest of a magpie, that’s all . ” Li Qiye said .

“Really?” She said: “So that progenitor was right? The dao source of Stone Harmony is still as rich as before . ”

“If that’s not the case, then why hasn’t the system fall to Myriad yet?” Li Qiye said .

“So you are saying something is taking over Stone Harmony? Where is it then? There should be clues if it is taking advantage of the dao source . ” She humbly asked .

Li Qiye looked down below: “I can’t tell right now . The progenitor of this land spent great effort to use a technique for foundational building . This system down here is quite profound with countless channels . It’s too early to lock onto this thing . ”

“After coming here, I felt a majestic force underground, seemingly blockaded and hidden by another entity so I can’t pinpoint its direction . ” She tilted her head and frowned .

“That’s correct, the dao source here is perfectly fine . Someone else is simply taking it for themselves . ” Li Qiye smiled .

“I see . ” She replied: “Rumor has it that the prosperous system started declining in just one night . Something fell from the sky like a meteor, people believed that this ominous sign was the start of the decline . ”

“Not necessarily, let’s not believe in superstition in the world of cultivation, but if this rumor is true, there will be an answer behind it all . ” He shook his head .

She nodded in agreement and looked down . The bottom was still as quiet and black as before .

“Are you interested in going down there? How about the two of us together?” She invited .

“Why not?” He intended on doing so in the first place so he accepted .

The two of them slowly descended, shoulder to shoulder .

During the process, she couldn’t help stealing glances at him . The man was simply unfathomable .

“May I ask where you are from?” She asked .

“I’m just a passerby in Imperial, where I’m from doesn’t matter that much . ” He chuckled .

“You must be from Myriad Lineage!” Li Yuzhen became surprised and impressed at the same time: “Your goal must be Immortal Lineage . I feel inadequate in comparison . ”

“You are very smart . A smart girl is always very lovely . ” He nodded .

This girl was world-renowned . Normally, she heard plenty of praises and flattery but all of them combined felt shallow . Li Qiye’s casual remark was much more pleasant and meaningful .

“I should learn from you, Dao Brother . I always want to go to Immortal Lineage, alas, my cultivation is still weak right now so I do not dare to be reckless . ”

Keep in mind that she was the strongest among the young generation in Imperial . People would be dumbfounded to hear this humble comment from her .

“There will always be a chance for someone like you to soar to Immortal . ” He had a high evaluation of her .

“Thank you, Dao Brother, I hope so too . ” She smiled . One could never get tired of this smile .

“May I ask when you are leaving for Immortal Lineage? If we have free time later, I would like to ask you a question or two about certain issues that elude me . ” She sincerely said .

Outsiders would find this unbelievable . In the present day, maybe only three or so characters were qualified to teach Li Yuzhen .
