“We need to show what we got even if it means dying!” Lucidity King declared resoundingly .
“Commendable courage, very well, I shall let you have a dignified death . ” Li Qiye was amused .
Sun Lengying and Lucidity King looked at each other before nodding somberly . This duo didn’t need words to understand each other . One glance was more than sufficient .
“Go!” The two roared and attacked at the same time .
The king had a majestic and regal aura; Sun Lengying’s merciless sword bit like a poisonous snake, aiming for the fatal spot .
However, people weren’t that interested in watching because the result was obvious .
“Clank!” Li Qiye casually flicked his finger twice and sent out two dao laws .
“Boom!” Their domineering moves and their strange yet dangerous weapons didn’t matter .
The two dao laws crushed everything along with the duo’s barriers .
“Pluff!” The laws shot through the two’s chest like divine arrows and pinned them down, staining the ground with their blood at a rapid rate .
“Ah!” The duo screamed and struggled but they couldn’t move at all .
They eventually gave up because the power gap was insane . Further struggling was futile .
Everyone expected this outcome . These two were indeed mighty, perhaps some of the strongest Eternals around . Alas, they were mere worms before him . He only needed to lift his foot and stomp down .
Some started recalling their glorious past . Just hearing the title “Lucidity” back then was enough to intimidate people - such a striking contrast to the current scene .
“Crossing my line will result in a thousand methods to make you two wish for death . Just any one of them will torture you for an eternity, to the point where you can’t handle living but can’t commit suicide either . Your screams will echo in Imperial for ten thousand years . ” Li Qiye stared insipidly at them .
The nonchalant comment frightened the crowd and made them tremble from top to bottom . Everyone could imagine the wails of torment spanning across an eternity . Just how terrible would the prolonged torture be? They started swearing to never provoke Fiercest in their mind since once fallen into his grasp, death might be a sweet release .
“Make your move . ” The king still smiled: “No one can live forever . I have experienced three generations and seen enough of life . It is my honor to die to thirteen palaces . ”
Lucidity King showed his unyielding characteristic, something superior compared to many Eternals and big shots .
“Dao Brother, please show mercy and spare the two of them?” A heavenly voice disrupted the conversation .
Two girls descended from the sky but one of them garnered everyone’s attention .
One of them was the captured Liu Chuqing . The other looked like an immortal in a light green dress . A very simple style looked exceptional because of her, brimming with life . When people breathed in, they felt an immortal presence .
“So pretty . ” Everyone got drawn in while looking at her .
No one had any licentious glint in their eyes - only pure admiration and intoxication . Her beauty was one thing but her aura was transcending . She should only exist in the upper world, not in the mortal realms .
“I’m afraid not . ” Li Qiye smiled and shook his head: “Fate has brought us together once before but this is not enough for you to ask me this favor and not enough for me to show mercy . ”
The girl was the mysterious guest when Li Qiye had just gotten to Nine Secrets . It was as if she appeared in his dream before .
“I know . ” The girl sighed: “But I’m still asking you to show benevolence . It’s fine to destroy their cultivation so they’ll become mortals for the rest of their lives . ”
Everyone was surprised to see this woman coming out of nowhere to help the duo . They didn’t recognize her and had no idea of her origin .
“I will not ask anyone for mercy, it’s just death . Don’t beg for my sake . ” Lucidity King laughed boisterously .
“Shut up!” The girl shouted and an imperial aura oozed out . The powerful Eternals spectating shuddered in response .
Strangely enough, the proud king obediently obeyed her and stopped speaking .
“Dao Brother, I will offer you my service if you agree to spare them . ” The girl beseeched again .
Anyone else would have felt bad saying no to a beauty like this and caved, not Li Qiye .
He simply shook his head and smiled: “No, those who have crossed my line are doomed . Even a progenitor can’t convince me otherwise, let alone a twelve-palace emperor like you . ”
Li Qiye didn’t back down from his original stance .
“I, I know who she is, that’s True Emperor Jiu Ning!” An ancient ancestor blurted out in astonishment .
“What?!” The members of the crowd were shocked and couldn’t close their mouth .
“That’s True Emperor Jiu Ning?” The experts here stared intensely at the girl .
“Yes, that’s her . I’ve seen her before one generation ago . She had only become a True Emperor then but now, she has twelve palaces . ”
“A twelve-palace emperor…” The crowd became stirred . This was a top-level existence, only inferior to progenitors .
“She’s Lucidity King’s daughter . ” Everyone felt like this was a dream .
The world knew that Lucidity King’s proudest deed wasn’t reigning for three generations or his numerous conquests . It was his peerless daughter - True Emperor Jiu Ning .
She didn’t let him down at all . The brilliant woman has become a twelve-palace True Emperor, the strongest of this level in Three Immortals .
