It was moving watching this place . One could sense the dead combatants’ unyieldingness while standing outside and couldn’t help but feel respect .
Weizheng and the others naturally felt the strong battle intents and became emotional .
One could easily imagine the ferocious battles that took place here . The dead soldiers still wanted to fight after so many years .
“Get out of the way!” Suddenly, they heard loud shouting from the back .
A group came from behind, young enough to show that they were here for training .
Their attires indicated their high upbringing . All of them had an air of nobility and expensive trinkets and treasures . Poor kids like Li Jiankun’s group from a tiny sect couldn’t compare to them at all .
Among them was a girl whose dressing style was actually less pompous . However, her temperament seemed to be one of arrogance and pride .
They started shouting despite being very far away as if Jiankun’s group was in the way .
In fact, Jiankun and the others weren’t blocking anyone’s path . The entrance was large and they only occupied a tiny part .
Nevertheless, they still moved to the side, not used to dealing with the imperious disciples from the bigger sects .
“Bam!” A whip struck the ground near Jiankun, nearly hitting him .
One of the male disciples in this new group shouted aggressively: “Be smart and stand to the side . ”
This clearly had nothing to do with the path itself . The newcomers simply wanted to act in a pompous manner and bully cultivators from the smaller sects in order to bask in their perceived superiority .
Jiankun restrained himself since the whip didn’t hit him . They didn’t want any trouble . Nay, they couldn’t afford to provoke these bigger sects .
However, the young Ruoxi lacked patience and voice her dissatisfaction: “There is plenty of room left so why should we kee-”
Weizheng stopped her from continuing since he was used to this type of scene .
“Oh, got a problem?” The male with the whip stopped and glared at her .
“I’m merely speaking the truth!” Ruoxi was still annoyed .
“She’s too young and naive, please don’t mind us . ” Weizheng hurriedly jumped in and smiled at the male disciple .
The youth snorted and forgave them after seeing Weizheng’s apology . Meanwhile, the girl at the center noticed Jiahui and her crown .
“You’re that new sage from Mountguard or whatever?” She arrogantly asked while looking down on Jiahui .
“Yes, that’s right . ” Weizheng smiled and put on a humble tone .
“What a load of crap . ” The girl said with disdain: “Not just anyone can wear that thing, don’t lose your head now . ” With that, this group entered the ancient battlefield .
Weizheng’s expression changed but he didn’t retort .
The group didn’t stop at this particular battlefield but moved on to a mightier one .
“School Master, they were ridiculously arrogant, why did we need to apologize to them? So unfair . ” Ruoxi complained .
“Fair or not, you need to watch it when we’re outside . Provoking someone stronger can bring about a disaster . This is a world where the strong eats the weak and a loose tongue may cause a lot of trouble . ” Weizheng said with a serious expression .
“Do laws and justice not matter?” Ruoxi has only become a cultivator recently, the newest disciple among the group .
Jiankun and the others were used to this and didn’t feel the same level of indignation .
“If you want justice, then speak with your fist and take him down . ” Li Qiye suddenly opened his eyes and said .
“But that will make me the same as them . ” She tilted her head in response .
“There will be a big difference . If you’re only strong enough to beat them down, then you’re limited to maintaining the justice you so desire . However, if your fist is strong enough, you’ll be able to change the rules in a region or the entire world . You’ll become the law, able to create a sect of righteousness or a fair world . Of course, you can also create a world where you’re the number one, the sky’s the limit . Remember, laws and orders require strength and force to maintain . If you want justice, then make yourself stronger first . ” Li Qiye elaborated .
The group was moved . They simply wanted to become stronger and cultivate better merit laws in the past and have never contemplated about deeper issues . They learned something new and desired strength even more .
When one’s fist is strong enough, they’ll become the laws! This phrase encompassed plenty of logic in life .
“And the chance to grow stronger is before you all now . Go train, lose some sweat and blood . Your effort will craft the life and world you desire . ” He insipidly said .
“Remember the ancestor’s teachings . Only blood and sweat will change the world into something you want . ” Weizheng emotionally said . He also benefited from this speech .
The group took a deep breath and bowed towards Li Qiye .
“Alright, let’s begin . Go up to that altar and worship the progenitor . ” Li Qiye pointed at an altar and said .
Next to the battlefield was an old and broken altar . Nevertheless, it still had a majestic and sacred aura . There was one altar like this in each battlefield .
The group exchanged glances and tidied their clothes before slowly climbing up the altar . They then respectfully kneeled before the memorial tablet up there .
Under Li Qiye’s guidance, they channeled their cultivation laws .
“Buzz . ” The texts of their merit laws appeared above them and poured down strings of light .
These strings of light circled around them, seemingly becoming a protective barrier .
“After entering, you all will face the lost souls . Remember, when your barriers are broken, you will be teleported back to the city . When feeling fatigued, come closer to these statues and you will be rejuvenated . However, losing and being teleported back numerous times is shaming me . ” Li Qiye pointed at the battlefield .
The group saw several statues erected in that place . Though the face wasn’t clear, they could tell by the aura that it was the progenitor of Immortal Demon System, Everlasting Forefather .
“If you can defeat this battlefield, then keep on moving . Outside of power, this is also a test for your dao heart to see how long you can last . This makes it a good training ground to gain actual battle experience and polishing your dao heart . Don’t lose so fast after just several rounds and humiliate me . ” Li Qiye sternly said .
