Everyone in Mountguard Sect, no, the entire system knew of this cave - the area where their progenitor searched for the dao and where he reincarnated after a cycle .
Prior to this, Jiahui considered this place to be a legend, a place she could never visit . Today, this legendary location lay before her, causing her to palpitate .
She regained her composure and slowly carried Li Qiye towards the cave .
“Pop!” A powerful force greeted her the moment she made it to the entrance, causing her to go flying and crashing into the ground .
Light suddenly emerged from the dark cave . These faint barriers seemed to have numerous grand dao circling around them .
Though they were faint, the barriers seemed to be the toughest things in existence . Nothing could ever penetrate them .
Jiahui realized that there was a seal here, meaning that not everyone had permission to enter .
She didn’t know what to do for she lacks the strength to break it . No one in her sect could either .
Suddenly, a hand reached out from behind her, Li Qiye’s hand .
He touched the barrier, resulting in pulsing ripples . His hand exuded numerous runes that eventually fuse with the barrier .
“Pop!” A noise similar to a balloon popping came about and the barrier disappeared .
“Young Noble!” Jiahui was ecstatic to see him up because he has been slumbering the whole time .
Li Qiye didn’t open his eyes nor answer . He withdrew his palm and went back to before .
Jiahui was used to this state of his and carried him inside the cave . She was stunned after entering, thinking that this was the wrong place .
The famous Immortal Demon Grotto looked just like an ordinary cave . There was no immortal energy and pulsing divine light, no merit laws carved all over the walls either . A cave similar to this one could be found everywhere in Mountguard .
Disciples of the sect would never believe that this was the legendary cave of their progenitor because of its unimpressive appearance .
She calmed down and looked around only to see a person sitting in the corner . She became startled and took one step back .
It was an old man sitting in a meditative pose . He wore a shabby robe and had no other ornaments .
He had a stalwart stature - just him sitting there gave a mighty feeling like that of a great mountain .
His beard draped down his chest, looking quite heroic . The opening of his eyes seemed capable of intimidating the world .
There was no aura on him . Perhaps he had been dead for a long time now because of all the dust on his robe .
If one wasn’t attentive enough, they would think that he was just a statue in the corner .
“Who is this?” Jiahui wondered .
Could this be their progenitor, Everlasting Forefather? She shuddered after this .
However, she knew this couldn’t be the case because their forefather had stopped his reincarnation cycle long ago . The old sages would have found him here in the past .
Thus, she became curious about this old man choosing this place to die .
She came closer in order to have a better look at the old man . She wanted to find out if he was a wise sage from Mountguard from the old generation .
“Boom!” The old man opened his eyes without warning the moment she got close . The entire cave was illuminated by his gaze .
“Ah!” She stumbled backward since she thought he was dead .
His eyes looked like two suns capable of melting everything . In the next moment, they became profound and able to contain the nine heavens and ten earths while deriving three thousand worlds .
He was stately without trying to do so . Despite not having a powerful aura, his eyes belonged to a supreme above looking down on the rest . People couldn’t help wanting to prostrate .
She took a deep breath and looked straight at his eyes . She wouldn’t have the courage to do so in the past . Her dao heart would have wavered, forcing her to drop down on her knees .
However, the previous experience has polished her dao heart . At the very least, she could stare straight at him now .
The old man then stood up, giving a sense of immensity as if he was shouldering the high heaven . All other living beings had to show their reverence at this sight .
Jiahui took another few steps back since she could sense an unstoppable power . A single finger of his could annihilate her .
He took a quick glance at her . This was more than enough for him to understand everything about her - from her background, cultivation, and foundation .
However, when he looked over at Li Qiye, he needed to focus his sight even more and releasing a dazzling light . His supreme aura intensified greatly . The gods and emperors would be suppressed before his presence .
Jiahui couldn’t withstand this pressure . Her legs became weak, on the verge of dropping to the ground .
A hand touched her shoulder and instilled a warm sensation coursing through her entire body . It eradicated the pressure in entirety .
“Play nice now, don’t scare the little girl . ” Of course it was Li Qiye .
“Young Noble!” Nothing else in the world gave her a sense of security like his voice . She could finally breathe easily now with the pressure gone .
The old man tried to see through Li Qiye with his heavenly gaze . Alas, he didn’t see a single clue . The guy was clearly unfathomable . No one else could fully judge him .
To the rest of the world, he was an untouchable existence . That’s why he could tell that Li Qiye was a terrifying being, not a person to be trifled with . The guy was at a far higher level than him .
One would be hard-pressed to find someone stronger than the old man in this world . However, this youth was clearly above him .
The worst part was that he knew nothing about this person .
“Where are you from, Dao Brother?” He took a deep breath and withdrew his gaze before bowing respectfully . 
1 . The brother here is older brother, it usually is to show respect
