Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2573

Chapter 2573: 2573

Li Qiye watched her departing figure and said: “Run, little girl, or you will die without a grave . ”

All in all, he has seen worse destruction before . A tiny city like this couldn’t even be considered a bubble in the river of time .

Billions and billions have died yet there were no records of their death, so the destruction of Mingluo would also disappear like smoke . At most, some would talk about it for a bit before the event falls into obscurity .

After all, several hundred thousand people or more would die after the destruction of any sect . The loss of Mingluo didn’t affect Imperial Lineage on the grand scheme of things .

He was already doing more than necessary by spreading the rumors of its destruction . The girl was also amusing so he spent more time to warn her .  

“Hmph . ” She turned back and scowled: “Our city will never fall . ”

Li Qiye chuckled and slowly closed his eyes .

She suddenly changed her mind after seeing his attitude and stared at him for a bit before asking: “What made you think this way?”

He didn’t answer, seemingly asleep .

“Hey . I’m talking to you, don’t play dead . ” She glared at him with both hands on waist, unsatisfied at being ignored .  

He slowly opened his eyes once more: “What will you do if destruction is imminent?”

She couldn’t come up with the answer since this scenario wasn’t plausible in her opinion .

“Of course I will die with my city . I will fight to the death against any invader!” She resoundingly claimed .

“It’s just a city, all you have to do is leave . ” He smiled .

She immediately barked back: “Impossible, Mingluo is my birthplace and home, I will protect it with my life . ”

“Everywhere is home as long as you’re alive . No home if you’re dead . ” He said .

“What do you know? Only Mingluo is our real home, everywhere else is nothing but meaningless land . Our sky isn’t that large . If our home exists, we will . If it ceases to be, so will we!” She asserted .

He looked at her and said: “Have you never thought about going somewhere else? To a stronger system?”

“Why should I? We’ll still only be ordinary disciples at a different system, not like we’ll become True Emperors by switching . Plus, there are several hundred thousand people here, not all of them can leave . If we accomplish nothing by leaving, then it’s better to stay at our home . ” She reasoned .

He actually became silent as his eyes gazed at the horizon . Memories about people and things resurfaced .

Like the Indomitable Battalion of the Silver Fox Legion, they obviously could go far and find new places to stay since they were certainly capable . Alas, they returned to their home - the place they love so much .

The girl was right as well . Their sky and potential weren’t that great . The city was their everything . They didn’t know about the riches and colors of the outside world .

In Li Qiye’s eyes, Mingluo was only an insignificant city but for them, it was their entire world, everything in their short lifespan .

‘This is the joy of the weak, just one city is enough . ’ Li Qiye became slightly moved .

“Hmph, no more nonsense, got it? Our city will be just fine . ” She glared at him again before leaving .

Unfortunately, she didn’t have that much conviction in her voice . She unconsciously tried to cheer herself up and convince herself that destruction will never come .

He closed his eyes again; his body gradually became ethereal - seemingly melting with the space around him . He eventually disappeared without a sight .

Starting with the surrounding air, he fused with the dao land itself of the entire system .  

When the sun rose, Li Qiye’s figure slowly emerged from a different dimension . He meditated for an entire day without moving .

“Pop!” Space fluctuated when he opened his eyes as he finally returned .

“Come, I have prepared a nice net for you, no chance of escaping . ” He smiled with a profound gaze: “Looks like this system really buried something amazing . No wonder why the creature would descend here . ”

He had theories as to why this system didn’t fall to Myriad Lineage . White Orchid City’s disappearance only reinforced his idea . Now, he knew that there was something down there that he wanted . All of the recent events were related to this particular item .

He got up and stretched before looking outside: “Alright, let’s go for a walk . ”

He entered the city once more . It was still as lively as ever . He casually walked around, wanting to be a part of the city .

The citizens kept themselves busy with earning money to get by . Perhaps they didn’t save much, just living day by day . Nevertheless, hard work was necessary to provide for their families .

This was another difference between mortals and cultivators . Mortals struggled to survive while cultivators had dreams about soaring to the nine firmaments .

He sat there and observed the merchants . What would their reaction be if they were to know that in just a few days, this entire place would be destroyed?

He smiled after thinking about this and made up his mind: “Fine, it’s convenient anyway . ”

Lin Yixue has moved him since she made him recall the past . Of course, he didn’t suddenly turn into a good person .

Those in the past who have fought with him were mere memories deep in his mind, nothing more . He thought about them and their stories again after listening to the girl .

Thus, he decided to save the city if it’s possible and convenient .

“Perhaps this is fate . ” He gently sighed . If it wasn’t for Yixue, he wouldn’t have changed his decision .
