The fate of the daoist commanded everyone’s attention as they stared nervously at the crater . Some started praying for his well being even though they had nothing to do with him . As long as he was alive, they could still have a sliver of hope .
“Bam!” Sure enough, a figure soared to the sky after causing a storm of debris .
“Yes, he’s alive!” Someone shouted excitedly .
“Right, Solar Daoist is alive…” An emotional Eternal emphasized .
They heaved a sigh of relief . At the very least, the daoist wasn’t defeated with a single move . Otherwise, it would be a fatal blow to all cultivators in Imperial as well . No one would be able to live well under Fiercest’s shadow .
The floating daoist looked quite sorry with blood everywhere . Though the hole in his chest has closed, a scar still remained . He no longer had the same transcending style as before .
Puresword True Emperor relaxed after seeing this because their carefully laid-out combination plan would be useless with the daoist dead .
Hope still remained at least . Perhaps the clan would still be able to reverse the tides .
“Looks like I have underestimated you . ” The daoist scowled .
He has grown used to seeing the fear on everyone’s face after becoming an Everlasting . The whole world wanted to flatter and earn his grace . Even a behemoth like the Mu was respectful towards him .
Who would have thought that his first battle would result in an utter defeat? And to a junior at that .
This humiliation would forever be a stain in his life . This made him unable to stay cool and became visibly annoyed with murderous intent .
“Your sight simply stops at the Everlasting level so your knowledge is also inadequate, rendering you unable to see my true terror . ” Li Qiye said flatly .
Everyone felt that he was qualified to make this disdainful statement . A being as powerful as the daoist was no different from a random passerby or a mere ant to Fiercest . His overwhelming strength left all of them breathless and robbed them of their goal in cultivation .
“It’s too early to speak! We have plenty of methods left . Let’s see who will be the last one smiling . ” The daoist’s expression was ugly after hearing this .
“You can have a thousand methods and it’ll still be useless . ” Li Qiye stretched and said: “Time to send all of you on your way and finish this . ”
The crowd became tense . This nonchalant comment meant that a massacre was about to start . A character of Li Qiye’s level could cause unbelievable damage, turning this system into ashes in just a short time .
“Hmph . ” The daoist scowled before exchanging glances with the emperor . The two of them then moved closer towards Li Qiye and assumed a pincer position .
The emperor was in front and the daoist in the back, ready to work together to suppress Li Qiye .
Of course, this situation wasn’t optimistic at all for them . The emperor was still wounded so they were inferior in terms of raw power .
“It’s starting . ” Some spectators became excited about the incoming ferocious battle .
“Decline is inevitable . ” One ancestor gently sighed .
Both of these two were unquestionably tough but the spectators weren’t bullish about them . Li Qiye was just too unfathomable .
“Do they actually stand a chance?” One expert murmured .
“It’s hard . ” An Eternal sighed in response: “Both the daoist and the emperor have used their ace cards . They need something even more heaven-defying to gain the upper hand . Otherwise, all of them and the Mu System will be annihilated by Fiercest . None of us is strong enough to actually have a good idea of Fiercest’s power . In my opinion, this is over unless a progenitor joins in . ”
“Okay, the two of you can start . Try your best so you can die without regrets . ” Li Qiye leisurely said .
The two looked at each other again while wearing a serious grimace . They knew that even their combined effort wouldn’t be enough to take on Fiercest . Alas, they still needed to try .
“Hundred suns severing the samsara!” The daoist roared and attacked first . His one hundred suns became shiny as they followed the newly-emerged temporal lines . 
The temporal lines instantly reached Li Qiye’s own timeline . Next, a loud blast ensued as the suns flew straight at him .
The emperor made his move at this exact moment before Li Qiye’s counter in accordance to their plan .
“Dao sealing the high heaven!” He raised his Gluttonous Battle Rod .
It sent out numerous dao laws from a progenitor in the blink of an eye . One could hear metallic clankings since the laws turned into peerless chains that lock Li Qiye’s everything - his space and time, grand dao, vitality…
This progenitorial seal wished to render him immobile and helpless .
