Chapter 90: Cleansing Incense Ancient Land (2)
Seeing this scene, Li Qi Ye stood silently on top of the land, for a long time. This was the commanding center for the sect. At this place, not only Min Ren, but he used to command the generals and soldiers from here. He brought an invincible Army from this place, and he started an expedition to conquer the nine heavens and ten earths.
In order to revive the sect, the Ancient Land has to be opened; otherwise, the sect must be relocated. Because, at the moment, the land of the sect was too small, and the Earth Vein that was moving the world’s energy was too thin.
Li Qi Ye intended to restart with fixing the Ancient Land to rebuild the sect, but, once he witnessed the scene before his eyes, he immediately knew what the ominous event that had struck the sect was!
The thing he hoped would never occured had happened. This caused Li Qi Ye to be solemn, and a bit perplexed; in the end, who was the one to open the seal?! There was no chance that it was Immortal Emperor Ta Kong because, even if Ta Kong forced open the seal, then the entire sect would no longer exist. He would have needed to destroy the Emperor’s foundation, but, seeing the current situation, this was not the case.
If it was not an intruder breaking the seal, then who, in the end, opened this seal? Thinking about this, Li Qi Ye quietly contemplated.
Nan Huai Ren curiously observed everything in front of him. This was his first time here, and he couldn’t help but to take out his sword, trying to pierce the stone paste on an ancient pavilion. However hard he tried to chisel, he could only leave a small sword mark the size of a rice grain behind; essentially, he couldn’t drill through this stone paste.
“It is useless; Elder Gu had tried doing the same thing before. It was essentially impossible to drill through. If a person with a certain cultivation was to force it, then there will be a rebounded effect.”
Protector Mo shook his head, and he said.
“What is this?”
Li Shuang Yan, seeing the stone paste encompassing the buildings, couldn’t help but feel strange.
“The protection of the Emperor’s foundation.”
At this moment, Li Qi Ye spoke:
“This ground was laid with an unshakable Emperor’s foundation. Once there was a calamity present, the Emperor’s foundation would automatically protect itself. This, to an extent, suppressed the evil energy under the ground from spreading. The protection is still here, and that means that the Emperor’s foundation is still here as well.”
Li Shuang Yan was touched by the fact that, even though there was a great calamity, the Emperor’s foundation was still standing. This was an Immortal Emperor lineage standing strong for millions of years, truly frightening. The hidden power of an Immortal Emperor lineage was incalculable. It seems like, if there wasn’t a huge disaster that year, even if the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect had truly declined, it was not an existence that could be provoked by the Heavenly God Sect!
“This will take some time.”
In the end, Li Qi Ye said these words. The seal formation had problems, and Li Qi Ye knew this matter was serious. In order to revive the sect and rebuild this land, he absolutely has to infiltrate the depth of this land once again.
If this was the case, then he must have full preparation. He needs powerful generals and brave soldiers. It couldn’t be rushed. Adequate arrangements must be made in order to be successful.
“There is a hole here.”
At this moment, Nan Huai Ren who was looking around found something, loudly announcing it.
Li Qi Ye’s group hurried over. The place where Nan Huai Ren was standing was a valley of low elevation. Within this valley with dead vegetations, there was a big hole dugged straight down. No one knew how deep the cave was. There was only a black as ink color down below as far as the eyes can see.
Carefully looking at the giant hole, one could see that circular lines pattern; it was as if a huge drill came down vertically in its creation. It was clear that this giant hole was not formed by a natural process.
“This giant hole wasn’t dug a long time ago.”
Li Shuang Yan carefully observed the giant hole, and she eventually came to this conclusion.
Li Qi Ye meticulously observed the hole, and he made some careful analysis. In the end he smirked, and he commanded Protector Mo:
“Protector Mo, immediately return and bring me Violet Mulberry Tree, the more the better. Also, bring me a giant pot, three bottles of vinegar, six bottles of Dove Dark Water, and Green Perfect Bones…”
Li Qi Ye listed a myriad of medicines, and, even though Protector Mo didn’t know what Li Qi Ye wanted to do, he still remembered each. After Li Qi Ye finished his instruction, Protector Mo immediately flew away, without the slightest doubts.
Once reaching the Heaven’s Primal realm, cultivators could fly without relying on any treasures.
“Oldest Brother, what are you trying to do?”
Seeing Li Qi Ye’s wanting so many items, Nan Huai Ren curiously asked.
Li Shuang Yan was also puzzled. Li Qi Ye’s list of items, many of them she had never heard of before.
Li Qi Ye let off a smile, and he said:
“I want to smoke a rat out of hiding.”
Finished answering, he simply sat down, and he got cozy, eagerly awaiting for Protector Mo’s return.
Protector Mo didn’t dare to linger around, and he immediately came back after one day.
“Set up the fire.”
After his return, he brought the large amount of Violet Mulberry Tree to Li Qi Ye; the pieces of wood were all dried wood. They immediately placed the dried wood in front of the giant hole, and they started a fire.
In a flash, the billowing smoke immediately infiltrated the cave. These smokes carried along with them a particular smell; it was a scent that was hard to describe by people.
The billowing smoke continuously circled into the cave. After a while, there was finally some movement. A thunderous noise appeared that shook the earth, it was as if there was a giant Earth Bull turning over in his grave!
After a loud explosion, a humongous monster rushed out from the cave. Another “Boom” exploded; this humongous monster created a huge crater on the ground when he fell down.
“Who dared to disturb my sleep with this unpleasant smell?!”
An ancient roar thundered, angered by being smoked out with this particular scent.
Seeing this humongous monster stomping on the ground, the group of Nan Huai Ren was dumbfounded. This humongous monster was not a particularly dreadful beast, but it was a giant snail, a snail knowing how to speak.
Seeing this humongous snail, only Li Qi Ye maintained his composure. At this moment, Li Qi Ye stood up, observed this humongous snail, and he calmly said:
“Not too bad. To be able to achieve Six Solutions; for your tribe, this is truly not an easy task.”
These words of Li Qi Ye greatly surprised the snail. Its two big eyes on its tentacles gazed at Li Qi Ye. The ancient noise resounded again, like the strike of thunder:
“Little brat, who are you? To be able to know the Six Solutions interpretation?!”
“Who I am, is irrelevant; however, what’s important is your appearance at this place!”
Li Qi Ye calmly stared at the giant snail, and he said:
“As for your comment regarding the Six Solutions, it is not a big deal; even the Eighteen Solutions, I can still theorize.”
“Good little brat! Speaking nonsensical rubbish!! There is no one in the world that knows the Eighteen Solutions.”
The giant snail shouted:
“No, that is not right! If there is indeed an Eighteen Solutions, then there is exactly one person that knows.”
Here, the giant snailed gazed intensely at Li Qi Ye, and his eyes triumphantly said:
“Not right, not right! Outside of that existence, there is no one else in this world that knows the Eighteen Solutions. You are simply a little human brat; it would be a miracle if you know the Eighteen Solutions.”
“The yellow peril lasting for ages, the ancient cauldron shining as deeply as the night’s blue ocean, the divine scholar tree exists in the mulberry field, the Golden Crow coming and leaving…”
(TN1: These were all four words phrases, interpreting their meanings is quite difficult since they’re meant to be abrupt and contextual which I am without. This is only 80% accurate at best, but the Golden Crow refers to Li Qi Ye I am sure)
At this moment, Li Qi Ye opened with a profound incantation that Li Shuang Yan’s group essentially couldn’t understand.
Hearing Li Qi Ye’s phrase, the snail was shock in amazement. Its two eyes opened wide glaring at Li Qi Ye. In a blink of an eye, from under the snail’s shell came a fat and gigantic hand, suddenly grabbing Li Qi Ye.
In just a split second, Li Qi Ye was gripped by the hand and moved into the sky, causing Protector Mo and Li Shuang Yan to be aghast. They wanted to take action, but Li Qi Ye waved his sleeve signaling for them to calm down.
“You, how do you know this profound incantation?!”
The snail’s huge eyes gazed at Li Qi Ye in astonishment.
“It was only the first part of the Seven Solutions incantation, nothing extraordinary; I could even say the Eighteen Solutions incantation.”
Li Qi Ye smiled, and he calmly said.
“Speak, hurry and tell me the Eighteen Solutions incantations!”
The giant snail became impatient, and he couldn’t wait any longer. His ancient voice yelled out.
“The Eighteen Solutions is the thing that your tribe has always been searching for. For me to simply speak, it definitely won’t be so easy. Following me, and then I can think about it a little bit.”
Li Qi Ye still calmly spoke.
“Ignorant brat, you dare to negotiate conditions with this old man?!”
The giant snail’s temper snapped, and he roared:
“Wait until I rip apart your sea of knowledge, and extract your memories; let see if you can still hide anything!”
Finished speaking, one tentacle turned into a strand of universal law, and it immediately pierced the forehead of Li Qi Ye, directly searching Li Qi Ye’s sea of knowledge.
Seeing this scene, Li Shuang Yan’s expression soured, knowing that the situation was not favorable.
However, in a split second, the entire heaven and earth seemed to have exploded. The forehead of Li Qi Ye suddenly unleashed an immortal strand of light! Followed by a huge explosion, the giant snail was blown away into another corner of the world!
At this moment, Li Qi Ye was like a grand enraged Immortal Emperor, and the immortal light from his forehead directly suppressed Nan Huai Ren and his master to the ground, even Li Shuang Yan wasn’t able to stand steadily.
Li Qi Ye drifted on top of the ground, and the immortal light from his forehead started to disappeared. Even so, the moment this light exploded, Li Qi Ye was like an angry Immortal Emperor; all existences under the nine heavens and ten earths had to prostrate under this immortal light!
