The group exchanged glances of confusion . Well, they should be happy with the addition of such a powerful member . It meant that revitalization could be possible .
The problem was that Li Qiye wasn’t a real disciple . He came out of nowhere and they knew nothing about his identity and background .
How could they rest easy when an unknown person is in charge of their sect?
“Ah…” Chen Weizheng forced a smile and bowed towards Li Qiye again: “Senior, well, look, our sect is only a run-down place, just a puddle of water not fitting for a true dragon like you…”
“Afraid of me taking over and you won’t be the school master anymore?” Li Qiye asked .
“No, of course not . ” Weizheng hurriedly shook his head and put on a righteous expression: “I do not care for status and power and am more willing to resign when there’s a better candidate available . But, Senior, with all due respect, we don’t know anything about you since we have just met…”
Weizheng was indeed telling the truth . He has always wanted to revitalize the sect but couldn’t because they had limited power .
He was the strongest in the sect as a True God . This was insignificant in Immortal Demon System .
Meanwhile, the young generation had limited potential as well and probably couldn’t surpass the previous due to the deteriorating condition of the sect .
Even if some supreme geniuses were born in their territory, they might not want to join Mountguard anyway since there were better choices available, such as Eight Trigrams Kingdom .
If say, Mountguard could produce someone stronger and more capable than him, he would be more than happy to pass on the leadership .
However, they knew nothing about an outsider like Li Qiye . Who knows what plans he would have for Mountguard?
“Don’t be idiotic . ” Li Qiye replied: “What is there in this run-down place for me to scheme? Only trash is left now, so I am sitting here today to teach you worthless descendants in your progenitor’s stead!”
The group couldn’t even get angry after being called trash because this existence was too strong . The exceptional qualities and achievements that they once took relative pride in were nothing in front of him .
“Senior, are you saying that you’re an ancestor of our system, a sage of our sect…? Weizheng was very quick-witted .
“Curiosity killed the cat . ” Li Qiye gave him the side-eye .
Weizheng shuddered, feeling that he was an ant standing before a massive behemoth from the primordial age . Not to mention him, even the entire sect wouldn’t be enough to fill this beast’s appetite . Thus, he no longer dared to speak due to fear .
Li Qiye stopped bothering with them and raised one hand .
“Boom!” Space rippled with numerous barriers emerging along with wondrous auras .
He activated a spatial rift to reach Mountguard’s library in order to take out two manuals . This astounded the hell out of the seniors here .
Though their sect has fallen, the actual foundation was still there . The library was blessed and strengthened by numerous emperors and sages, even their progenitor himself .
This meant that the defenses of the library were still as powerful as ever . Outsiders would find it impossible to get through .
However, Li Qiye just needed to stretch his hand . Not only did he cross through space, he easily got through the barriers and took out various manuals .
This heavily-guarded trove of information became his personal bookshelf . He could take whatever he wanted on a whim as if they were just ordinary books, not precious manuals .
The seniors thought that if Li Qiye could do this, he could also take anything from their sect, even the things hidden in the most mysterious and guarded locations .
Mountguard no longer had any secret or defense in front of this guy .
“The two of you fit these merit laws, do your best . ” Li Qiye casually threw one scroll to Jiahui and Zhiting each .
They didn’t know what to do because learning the most powerful merit laws required merit points . Now, Li Qiye skipped all the necessary steps and gave them the original copies .
“Buzz . ” He raised his hand again and took control of the spatial realm in Mountguard . Everything here was within his grasp so he had absolute supremacy .
“Rumble!” Majestic powers of the grand dao oozed out from the ground of the sect .
The disciples felt much closer to the grand dao . The entire sect seemingly changed into a sacred ground perfect for cultivation .
The dao power permeated every inch of the land . Runes started glowing on the ancient ruins - marks left behind by their sages and emperors . These marks disappeared before with time but now, they were returning once more . It was as if these great beings have returned to various locations around the sect .
If one were to listen to their chants in these ruins, they would improve greatly .
“I have stimulated and squeezed out the hidden potential of Mountguard’s foundation . If the present generation still amounts to nothing, then your foundation will wither and your sect will be at the end of the line, destruction will be imminent . This is your last chance, it’s best not to waste it . ” Li Qiye declared .
With that, he told Jiahui to push him out .
Meanwhile, the remaining members in the hall stood there in a daze . Extracting the foundation meant that cultivation would be much easier in this generation . They would have a greater chance of revitalizing the sect .
However, the disadvantages and risks were immense as well . If they were to fail this generation, then their sect would turn to ashes .
“Senior, Senior!” Weizheng regained his wits and gave chase .
Jiahui stopped while the sleeping Li Qiye ignored him .
“Senior, may, may I inquire what we should do with the Virtuous Crown?” Weizheng hesitated before asking .
