Emperor’s Domination - Chapter 2689

Chapter 2689: 2689

Strangely enough, the victim in this endeavor had a polar contrast reaction compared to the nervous audience . Li Qiye looked nonchalant despite the darkness invading him .

“Not bad, it does have the flavor of a ferocious weapon . ” Li Qiye actually smiled during the corrosive process and looked to be enjoying the whole thing, treating the darkness like a delicacy .

The crowd became frozen after seeing his enjoyment . They stared at his shoulder and confirmed the injury along with the dark infection, seemingly perplexed about the whole thing .

The daoist himself was stunned as a feeling of uncertainty appeared .

“People are asking for a miracle, so allow me to show them . ” Li Qiye smirked .

“Boom!” A blinding radiance erupted around him and illuminated the nine firmaments and ten earths . Everything else was cast into the shade by this overwhelming light . Darkness had no place to hide, not even in the deep crevices or the remote regions .

“Rumble!” Li Qiye’s fate palaces started flying out, one by one .

“One, two, three…” In the beginning, no one really cared about the number since they believed that he would have twelve . Perhaps all twelve would be lit up too . That’s the only way to explain his power .

However, someone instantly noticed that the number was strange and started counting .

“Thirteen… thirteen palaces!” This person yelled out after recounting several times just to be sure .

“There are really thirteen palaces, we’re not counting wrong!” Another loudly chimed in .

“How, how can this be? Thirteen palaces?! It’s impossible!” People questioned this after calming down .

“It’s really a miracle…” One member murmured in astonishment .

A shocking miracle has occurred with the appearance of thirteen palaces . Even a being as strong as Solar Daoist became slack-jawed all the same .

“What, what’s going on…” The daoist had confidence in his knowledge accumulated throughout the years .

Alas, this was his first time seeing thirteen palaces . The sight struck him hard and made him jolt as if he was seeing a ghost .

Anyone with a sliver of common sense knew that twelve palaces were the limit in Three Immortals .  

A cultivator only had up to three palaces at the True God level . After opening the third one, it meant that they have become a first-level Ascender . Furthermore, only True Emperors would be able to open all twelve palaces .

This didn’t mean that emperors could control all twelve palaces and their powers either . Using true dao water to light them up was a requirement for emperors to be effective .

As for Ascenders, each level meant being able to open one palace . A ninth-level Ascender would have eleven palaces . After opening the twelveth palace, one would become an Eternal .

Both Eternals and True Emperors would only have twelve palaces regardless of their future accomplishments on the dao .

Thus, even the strongest being should only have twelve palaces, including progenitors of the immortal level . This was the conventional wisdom .

However, Li Qiye’s thirteen palaces broke this rule and astounded the crowd .

“Thirteen…” Some still muttered to themselves .

“Boom!” The thirteen palaces formed everything with Li Qiye as the center of the universe and the origin of the grand dao . All must prostrate before him .

An explosion blew the spear flying . The invading darkness got burnt into nothingness . Everything seemed insignificant before the thirteen palaces .

“Yes!” The crowd shouted after seeing this development .

“It’s a miracle, only Fiercest can create a miracle like this!” People started praising Fiercest again .

This miracle of his instilled hope and radiance back to Imperial Lineage .

One old Eternal became emotional and said: “No wonder why he is so unfathomable and unbeatable . A new precedent is set in Three Immortals . He might be on the same level as the three mythical immortals and above all progenitors . ”

“What a freak…” Both Lucidity King and Sun Lengying turned pale . Not even in their dream would they expect something like this .

“I’ve never made a mistake in my entire life until now . This is our biggest failure . ” Lucidity King stood there in a daze while looking at the thirteen palaces .

“I could have started something great again with the board given to me but I ruined it . ” He was no longer happy with his schemes .

Using someone else to unite Nine Secrets and destroy the Mu System - this was a plan worthy of pride . Lucidity King was very pleased with his craftiness .

However, these plans and achievements were meaningless before the thirteen palaces .

Why? Because he was the first one to meet Li Qiye in Imperial Lineage and was smart enough to notice the peculiarities .

However, if he had acted wiser and simply chose to befriend Li Qiye instead of scheming, he would have gained a lifetime of benefits . A person with thirteen palaces could rival any progenitor .  

In fact, he would be written down on the historical annals for befriending this peerless existence . Future generations would praise him as a sage full of wisdom, the first to recognize Fiercest’s abilities .

Unfortunately, he had let go of this opportunity . His achievements would stop at only being “Lucidity King”, a powerful Eternal foolish enough to offend Fiercest .

Lucidity King reflected on how he had wasted this ultimate card . Worst of all, he unknowingly took pride in making this mistake too .

“Man proposes but heaven disposes . A lifetime of scheming, all for naught . ” He eventually let out a wistful sigh .
