Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2660

Chapter 2660

“If Brother Mu doesn’t trust me, you can ask Senior Solar himself when he visits tomorrow . ” Sun Lengying blew on his hot tea and took another sip in a natural manner as if everything was going according to plan .

“Solar Daoist is really visiting our clan?” The ancestor took a deep breath .

“Of course, that’s why he saved Virtuous Nephew Mu Jian . He views the young emperor and your clan very highly . ”

The ancestor had a serious expression . Even though their clan was one of the three behemoths, they didn’t have an Everlasting in this generation .

In fact, Solar Daoist was the only Everlasting in all of Imperial right now . He was unbeatable in an era without progenitors .

Thus, an Everlasting visiting their clan was indeed a big deal, an honor even .

Though the ancestor has heard this through the grapevine, Lengying has now confirmed it .

“Is your clan preparing for a truce?” Lengying always had a cold expression, rendering him unreadable .

The ancestor’s expression changed several times in a short period as he hesitated .

The emperor’s defeat was a tough wakeup call to them, almost like being struck in the head by a bludgeon .

Fiercest’s power was unreal so they truly wanted to quit . If conditions allowed, they would really negotiate for peace .

“Brother Mu, you think you can actually have a truce with Fiercest? If it was possible in the first place, you wouldn’t have waited until today . This is a long-running feud . ” Lengying said .

This was indeed the truth . They have antagonized him back when Mu Shaochen was still around . He had more animosity with them than any other lineage in Imperial .

“I'll be frank . ” Lengying continued after a sip of his tea: “Fiercest will absolutely try and destroy your clan . He has control over Nine Secrets, one of the three main players in our world . As you can see, Jade-break True Emperor is siding with him too, so an alliance between the Li and Nine Secrets is assured . You and the Li are certainly not friends either, so if these two powers want to have a full grasp over Imperial, who is the odd man out among the three behemoths? Who should they destroy for supremacy?”

Lengying put down his cup and gaze at the ancestor .

“Us . ” The ancestor naturally knew the answer .

The three behemoths have formed a state of equilibrium . When Lucidity King was around, he wouldn’t have created an alliance with the Li or the Mu . This was the same case for the Mu and the Li .

However, times were changing . Fiercest was unstoppable now and Jade-break True Emperor seemed to be joining him . An alliance between Nine Secrets and the Li seemed inevitable .

Their clan had a terrible relationship with this group . Even if Fiercest didn’t move against them today, the alliance would come for them in the future .

The equilibrium would break and the entire world would belong to Nine Secrets and the Li .

The Mu ancestor could see this and became anxious .

“Are you sure you still want to negotiate for peace with Fiercest now?” Lengying pressed on .

The ancestor couldn’t respond since he had zero confidence about a potential truce with Fiercest . It has escalated beyond that point .

“Your clan must either pay an absurd price or forever submit to Fiercest and Nine Secrets to survive . Otherwise, peace is impossible . Will you kneel before Fiercest? If you say yes, then I have nothing else to say . ” Lengying didn’t hold back .

The ancestor’s expression became ugly . As one of the three behemoths, their clan has been reigning over this world for many eras . They wouldn’t be able to handle submitting to Fiercest .

“The only choice for your clan is to fight . I have tried my best and managed to ask Senior Solar to join us . This is your last hope . ” Lengying said .

“Will Solar Daoist really fight Fiercest?” The ancestor remained uncertain .

Their clan had a cordial relationship with the Lu but this was meaningless for someone of the daoist’s level . It would be hard to invite him .

This wasn’t the case for Sun Lengying . He had personally served tea to the daoist before, so the daoist would keep this old relationship in mind despite his current status .

“That depends on your clan . ” Lengying said: “If you don’t contribute a little something, you think the senior will come help? You must be the one to seize the opportunity . The Lu only lost Lu Weijun, a distant descendant, so the senior actually has no reason to take a big risk . ”

The ancestor took a deep breath and looked at Lengying: “What do you mean?”

“Go all out . Your clan will be the main battlefield . Assist the senior with everything you have . We will only have peace after slaying Fiercest . ” Lengying said: “After we kill him, I shall regain control over Nine Secrets and we’ll become the closest allies . The Li will be powerless to stop us then . Imperial will be ours for the taking . ”

The ancestor couldn’t help but smile . This was the best news in recent days, giving him and his clan hope for a beautiful future .

“Brother Mu, you mustn’t miss this opportunity . ” Lengying continued: “Solar Daoist is an Everlasting so it’s only a matter of time before his ascension to Immortal Lineage . Once he leaves, no one in our world will be able to stop Fiercest . If we can’t kill him, then it’s no problem for me, I just need to find a remote place to live through the rest of my years . I have no real grievances against Fiercest, in fact, I even helped with his coronation, so he shouldn’t have any animosity against me . On the other hand, what will your clan do when Senior Solar departs?” 

The ancestor became serious . Their clan has never lacked confidence but Fiercest was too strong . The four great masters together still got annihilated by him with only one survivor .

They weren’t confident in stopping an attack from him on their own territory . Plus, even in the most optimistic case, their loss would still be heavy . They would decline from there and no longer be one of the three behemoths .

He composed himself and said: “So let’s say that our clan will be the main battlefield, we will still need to lure him in at the perfect time . He might not be willing to jump straight into a net . ”

Fighting in their clan would be the best scenario for the Mu since they would have the home advantage . With ample preparation and traps, their chance of victory became far more optimistic .

But if Fiercest attacked randomly and at the wrong location - catching them off guard - the outcome would be far worse .
