The scriptures remained an unreachable legend in Three Immortals . Alas, the real masters here have always coveted them, resulting in arduous searches .
After reaching a certain power level, they could break the shackles of the dao after obtaining a scripture .
That’s why numerous emperors and progenitors have searched for them . Only a very select few have been successful .
The old man was absolutely sure that Li Qiye was holding a highly-prized heavenly scripture .
His eyes became serious with a terrible and aggressive flash . It would be a lie to deny temptation when staring straight at a heavenly scripture .
Not to mention ordinary experts or an Eternal, even a progenitor would start palpitating . However, the old man looked away and instantly calmed down . He quickly dropped any idea about it .
He would have gone for it if it was anyone else, even a progenitor . Unfortunately, he couldn’t see through Li Qiye at all .
Intuition told him that if he were to try, his fate would be very miserable - probably turning into ashes .
Meanwhile, Li Qiye didn’t bother batting an eye at the old man as if he didn’t care about a potential robbery, acting nonchalant the whole time . Vigilance wasn’t necessary at all .
Jiahui couldn’t understand the gravity of the situation earlier . The dangerous and tense moment only lasted for a split second . A great battle nearly happened just now with the result being the death of the old man because of greed .
“Old man, to actually leave something like this behind? Looks like you have predicted the future . ” Li Qiye gently sighed while being slightly emotional .
This was one of the nine Heavenly Scriptures with the name Longevity Scripture in the present . It didn’t have this name back during Everlasting Forefather’s epoch . Its name used to be Samsara .
Now, it will have a new page and a new name after being in Li Qiye’s possession .
This scripture has been passed down numerous eons . Everlasting Xiao had it for a long time then it was lost after his eon . Later on, he found it again and sealed it in this cave .
Today, Li Qiye took it out, thinking that the old man purposely left it here . He was slightly touched that the old man would leave behind something for him .
He knew that the Longevity Scripture and Longevity Grass were a perfect pair . Having both would be very significant .
Now, he had both the Death Coffin and Death Scripture . Alas, the Longevity Grass’ location remained unknown .
The old man saw his expression and confirmed that this youth wasn’t Everlasting Forefather . However, they were closely related . That’s the extent of his knowledge .
“Bring that crown next to you here . ” Li Qiye put away the scripture and ordered the old man .
The old man stared at him briefly and followed his order, taking a crown by the corner and bringing it to him .
People would be shocked to see this because this old man had a heaven-defying background . Even progenitors right now needed to address him as “Dao Brother” or “Fellow Daoist” .
But now, Li Qiye ordered him like a follower or a servant . The more unbelievable part was how the old man listened, not caring about his own status or take pride in it .
Jiahui took a look at the crown and saw that it was a circular style, not an imperial crest with tassels . Made from unknown materials, it emitted a holy and scholarly presence .
“Since you have carried me here, this will be your just reward . ” Before she could calm down, Li Qiye placed it on her head and said .
Jiahui quietly accepted since she couldn’t refuse a gift from him .
The old man glanced at the girl with a glint in his eyes . She didn’t know the actual significance of the crown and what it symbolizes, only thinking that it was a treasure .
In fact, not to mention Mountguard, this crown wielded great significance over the entire system . Those wearing it would gain incredible prestige .
Not just anyone in the system was qualified to put it on . Jiahui certainly wasn’t with her current strength . Only heaven-defying beings were eligible .
Of course, the old man could put it on too . He just wasn’t interested .
He didn’t oppose this decision from Li Qiye so it was a tacit recognition of her status .
In his mind, someone like Li Qiye wouldn’t casually give this crown to a random person . It meant that she was worthy of this crown .
She didn’t know that her destiny has been decided the moment she wore this crown . She was no longer an ordinary disciple from Mountguard .
“Let’s go . ” Li Qiye closed his eyes and fell into slumber again .
Jiahui put him on her back then bowed to the old man before walking towards the entrance .
“Senior!” The old man couldn’t hold back and decided to be humble .
Jiahui stopped, waiting for Li Qiye to respond .
“Senior, I have many unclear aspects with my grand dao, please guide me . ” The old man took a deep breath and kneeled .
No one in Immortal Lineage could handle this grand gesture from him but he still assumed the role of a junior before Li Qiye .
“You have learned Everlasting Forefather’s Samadhi Dao and reached the peak . The issue is in your head, that’s all . ” Li Qiye opened his eyes and glanced at him .
“Please guide me, Senior . ” The old man bowed again .
“Very well, I will show you the path . ” Li Qiye pointed at the old man .
“Pop!” A dao law shot into his forehead, resulting in a galactic-level explosion . He started shaking violently .
He felt as if a divine bridge has been erected in his mind, allowing him to reach an entirely new realm and world .
