“Seering the heaven’s will?” The emperor’s expression soured, aware of the taboo behind the act . Someone as powerful as her couldn’t easily do so either .
“It’s not an ordinary attempt either, the person is reaching for the future to read a million years of fate and providence . The heaven and earth do not allow this!”
The emperor took a deep breath after hearing the gravity of the situation .
In a successful attempt, this person would know the future and could make ample preparation . In fact, they might even be able to change their fate and avoid any disaster .
From this, many things would divert from the original path . People’s original fate would no longer be the same . Changing the future was indeed heaven-defying and terrorizing .
Due to this, peering blatantly into the future would bring about a terrible tribulation . This particular one was monstrous beyond belief .
Remember, Three Immortals was different from the nine worlds and thirteen continents .
Imperial and progenitorial ascensions rarely brought down a tribulation in this world .
In the case of the former, only extremely brilliant existences would have one during their imperial ascension .
This was the case for progenitors as well . The rare case of tribulation would be quite weak . The majority of progenitors could easily handle it .
This one in the sky was unprecedented in terms of power . Perhaps Three Immortals has never experienced one like this before . It looked to be on a world-destroying level .
That’s why everyone in Immortal, from humans to beasts and birds, started hiding from fear . Progenitors and emperors also did the same thing . They shrouded themselves in order to avoid attracting this heavenly tribulation .
“Who is doing it?” True Emperor Jiu Ning stared at the gathering storms and wondered .
“Can it be?” She suddenly thought of a legendary progenitor who is famed for reading the future and changing fate . Numerous great beings have come to this person for help .
The person was one of the few progenitors left in Immortal . Few have actually seen this mysterious person’s real form .
“But why, the progenitor knows the consequence of doing so . ” She shuddered . This progenitor never abused his divination ability and normally refused people coming to help . Only a selected few were lucky enough to get help .
It has been a long time since she heard of him in action . In fact, there were rumors of him retiring from divination altogether .
If he was the one doing this right now to peer the heavens and read the future, the consequences would be unfathomable . He himself might die as a result of just a single mistake .
“What makes him go all out right now? To read so far into the future without a care about the consequences?” She wondered .
An invincible progenitor like him should be relatively carefree about worldly matters . There must be a deeper reason behind this .
“A good swimmer is more likely to drown . ” Li Qiye said flatly: “Those capable of reading the heavens always get the itch . Looking at the future is too tempting . No one can resist this regardless of how strong their dao heart is .
“I see . ” She understood this adage .
“They always want to see the future, even if not their own . Others’ future will do just fine . As they grow even stronger, they want to read the overarching momentum a million years from now . This temptation is deeply rooted in the mind . One day, just the most random thing can trigger this desire, rendering them unable to hold on . ” He continued .
The emperor took a deep breath, aware of the temptation . After reaching the realm of progenitors, most would want to travel even further, hence the need to learn about the unknowns .
“Rumble!” The explosions intensified in power, wanting to destroy all of Immortal Lineage .
“Creak…” The gate above the heaven finally closed and the darkness won .
Of course, the various systems lit up in order to illuminate their domains but the sky remained sealed .
The sensation of being imprisoned permeated the air . Everyone felt suffocated .
“Rumble!” The lightning currents grew stronger and looked like floods, strangely emitting some light to the otherwise dark world .
Light returned to this form but it had an intimidating pressure instead of pacifying the inhabitants here . Thunder and lightning bolts grew stronger, ready to turn this world into ashes .
“Boom! Boom! Boom!” The arcs of lightning washed the sky again and again .
Eventually, a few peaks and sacred grounds started glowing as well, same with a few people . This type of resonation proliferated .
It also happened to Li Qiye and True Emperor Jiu Ning . In the beginning, there were no crackling and explosions, only a flashing light - virtually indiscernible .
As the bolts in the sky intensified, the glows on everywhere also became brighter with accompanying crackles .
The two found lightning flashing around them as if they were born with this affinity .
The emperor fared better but Li Qiye was having a hard time . The currents on him started small but grew increasingly thicker from within .
“This is a large-scale heavenly tribulation . The stronger the being, the stronger the tribulation if they don’t hide . ” Li Qiye looked at himself and said before focusing back on the sky .
This happened to the emperors and progenitors scattered all over Immortal Lineage . They instantly shrouded themselves in order to fool the high heaven . The currents disappeared after doing so .
The emperor used a dao technique to hide her aura then a better method to shroud everything else about her . Just like that, she disappeared from sight and so did the currents on her .
