“Buzz . ” Dao runes spread around the mound like rippling waves . This imperial aura resembled an emperor marching to battle .
The ones outside the city became alert by this aura .
“So are they doing this or not?” One guy whispered .
“Not that fast . ” An expert shook his head: “Puresword True Emperor hasn’t arrived yet . How the hell is this group going to face Li Qiye? Lightning Sword God alone isn’t enough to be an appetizer . ”
“True, without the emperor and their strongest ancestors, attacking will be suicidal . ” One ancestor nodded .
Eternals were slaughtered like pigs . Anything less would be a joke against Fiercest .
Lightning Sword God was strong indeed, but that was only relative to the young generation . He was nothing before Fiercest . Maybe his master would be a better match .
“The emperor will come, it’s only a matter of time . The Mu won’t let go of this chance . ” One expert said while looking at the Mu camp .
Though the clan hasn’t done anything yet, the imperial aura engulfing the sky there showed their intent . They would definitely march into Mingluo . The question was, when?
“Fellow Daoist Li, we wish to enter the city . ” On the second day of Mingluo being covered in brilliance, Lightning Sword God finally revealed his stance while embracing his sword .
“It’s happening . ” This attracted everyone’s attention .
“The Mu is still giving Fiercest some face; courtesy first, fight second . ” This was surprising to some people .
The Mu was one of the three behemoths and had an amazing True Emperor as their clan master right now . They were famous with few peers .
Virtually everyone needed to give them face . Under normal circumstances, most would become elated and felt honored if Lightning Sword God were to ask them before visiting their city . They would rush out to greet him .
“Scram . ” However, Li Qiye answered in a direct and aggressive manner, not caring about the sword god’s status .
The crowd smiled wryly after hearing this . That’s Fiercest for you, always overbearing and unreasonable regardless of the other party .
Fiercest seemed to not care about offending anyone in Imperial Lineage . He didn’t mind going against the rest of the world .
“What a monster . ” Even those who didn’t like him found some admiration: “He wants to offend all the great powers in Imperial, the only one who would dare to do so . ”
Offending people was inevitable in the cultivation world . Alas, Li Qiye’s action was still unique and strangely admirable .
Lightning Sword God showed no emotion after hearing the rude response . He stood there quietly .
“Li, you’re out of line!” On the contrary, Yang Tingyu furiously shouted: “I am a member of Stone Harmony, my Luo Faction is the greatest sect in Stone Harmony and this city is ours, you’re simply taking over our place!”
“Death to all intruders . ” Li Qiye didn’t bother commenting on Tingyu’s claim . His simple answer stopped all further justification .
Tingyu said all of that just to prove that he was a disciple of Stone Harmony and the master of Mingluo . On the other hand, Li Qiye was only an outsider; he didn’t have authority over the city .
Unfortunately, this failed because Li Qiye didn’t play along and stopped it right away .
He had plenty of justifications ready but nothing could come out now, leaving his mouth awkwardly open before the crowd .
“You… one day, you will be tied up to a pillar and chastised by others for taking over someone else’s system!” Tingyu furiously said .
Li Qiye didn’t respond to this . However, the Mu was in a difficult situation .
Their clan and the sword god were certainly strong but dealing with Li Qiye demanded extreme prudence . His few words weighed a thousand pounds - he would absolutely kill any intruder .
“Hmph, you are being very unreasonable!” Someone scoffed with the intensity and outbreak of a sudden thunderstorm in spring . A great divinity exploded at the top of the Adamantine Tree and poured down the world like a flood .
“That’s the heavenly monarch, Sha Yucheng . ” Someone whispered .
The leader of Famed Bamboo has stated his stance, clearly standing on the side of the Mu . Of course, this wasn’t surprising since he was the emperor’s sworn brother .
“The world is full of hidden dragons and crouching tigers . Don’t think of yourself as being invincible or you will die without a burial . ” His mighty Eternal aura covered the land in an effort to intimidate and warn Li Qiye .
“Is the monarch starting?” Another spectator said .
“Boom!” A palm strike suddenly emanated from the palace in the ruins of Mingluo - one as casual as someone swatting a fly .
It crushed through the void and instantly arrived on top of the great tree .
“Rumble!” The tree exuded a green light full of life . Laws appeared with boundless power . It has activated various barriers in order to stop Li Qiye’s strike .
The strike rendered them effective and crushed these laws into smithereens, causing loud explosions . More deafening destruction ensued .
“Not good!” The tree was drowned in chaos with people fleeing and shouting . Branches and leaves were scattering down . The buildings and numerous disciples also fell down along with the thick branches .
The tree became a mess with damages everywhere, no longer as majestic as before .
