“The treasures of the gods are left by them for their Human Race descendants. You are a mere mortal, how could you pocket it alone!”
Dao Child Sheng Tian’s words were like the blooming lotus flowers:
“You keeping this treasure would not only be your demise, but also the demise of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect! The smart ones are the heroes; you take one part of the treasure and leave behind the rest. I along, with Brother Qing Xuan, will guarantee your safety as you leave!”
At this time, Chen Baojiao said with disdain:
“The so-called heaven’s proud sons are nothing but cowardly pretentious rats. Wanting to take others’ treasures yet still speaking this nonsense and spouting shameless words. It can’t get any more wretched than this!”
Chen Baojiao’s statement made Dao Child Sheng Tian’s expression turn red and then green, but he coldly scowled and remained arrogant:
“My patience is limited. Hurry up and hand the Godly Monarch Weapon over; otherwise, suffer the consequences.”
At this time, Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan unleashed his aggressive aura and became impatient.
Li Qiye bursted out in laughter. Even facing everyone in the world, he was still nonchalant and calm. He said:
“And if I don’t hand over the treasure?”
Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan replied with one word. It was filled with killing intent like cold steel and frightening chills.
“You will become the enemy of the entire world if you don’t hand over the treasure. You will be murdered by everyone.”
At this time, an expert loudly shouted.
Who didn’t want a half-cup of soup from the treasure? A lord coldly exclaimed:
“Hurry up and hand over the treasure or face your death! Being the enemy of everyone in this world will not result in a good end!”
“Enemies with everyone in this world? Murdered by everyone? I am so afraid, ah.”
Li Qiye laughed and patted his chest. Then, he squinted his eyes while speaking:
“Enemies with everyone in this world? Everyone in this world, just with all of you? All worthless! So what if everyone was my enemy? I’ll still kill without mercy!”
“Young Man, such big words!”
At this moment, Enlightened Being Si Tu stood up and smiled:
“Don’t think that just because you have an emperor’s possession that you are invincible in this world. The Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom and Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan wanting to destroy you… This is an easy matter. Regarding emperor’s possessions and emperor treasures, how can your Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect compare to the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom?”
Enlightened Being Si Tu was a cunning old fox. His words first brought the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom into the mix, and it was also threatening Li Qiye.
“I am so scared.”
Li Qiye cheerfully smiled:
“What about the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom? What if I don’t hand over the treasure?”
“Young people are always hotheaded. You simply don’t know the immensity of the heavens and vastness of the earth.”
Enlightened Being Si Tu smirked and then said:
“If something should happen, then it would be unfortunate.”
Finished speaking, he took one step forward and revealed his torrential aura.
Without a doubt, Si Tu was clearly threatening Li Qiye. If he didn’t hand the treasure over, only death awaited him.
“How many Enlightened Beings did your Heavenly Jewel Kingdom bring?”
The old servant behind Li Qiye coldly snorted and also took a step forward, revealing his blood energy! His aura billowed out in front of Li Qiye and protected him.
“So it is the Chen Clan’s Grandpa Shi. You have not come into being for such a long time, why the need to stir this muddy water this time? Even if you can stop me, can you also stop Grandpa Guan from the Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom?”
Enlightened Being Si Tu let off a fabricated smile.
At this point, Si Tu glanced at the old man wearing a hat next to Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan. His intention was very clear; if they were to join forces, the old man needed to show some sincerity!
This old man came out with a completely different momentum, towering like a giant mountain, standing motionless like iron chains blocking the rivers. He was like the hidden rocks hindering the waves. Even though he suppressed his own aura and cultivation, but when he came out, it still felt very oppressive and suffocating.
As this old man stood up, even the old servant’s eyes shrunk. He felt a great threat, knowing that he had met an enemy much stronger than him!
“A suppressed Ancient Saint.”
Niu Fen looked at this old man and smiled, hehe.
At that moment, countless people shivered in their hearts. During the Difficult Dao Era, only the absolutely brilliant ones could become an Ancient Saint. This was an unfathomable man!
“Young Noble Li, life is the most valuable thing. Take a step back and be humbled by the high sky and wide ocean.”
Li Qiye smiled and replied:
“Suppressing your cultivation to come inside, you should watch out for the emperor’s punishment. When the emperor’s punishment comes down, unless you are an Immortal Emperor… otherwise, becoming nothingness is the only result.”
The Evil Infested Ridge had been refined by Immortal Emperor Min Ren. Outsiders that went in had to be below the Ancient Saint realm; otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to enter. He did this to protect the treasures inside the ridge. It was so that the descendants of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect wouldn’t needlessly plunder the place, killing the chicken to take the eggs.
Although only cultivators under the Ancient Saint level could enter, some opportunistic cultivators used a special method to suppress their cultivation to sneak inside.
However, this came with a danger. Once their cultivation gets revealed, they would be suppressed. If it was a serious offense, then even an emperor’s punishment would come down. This was an extremely frightening matter.
Grandpa Guan, with godly lights in his eyes and an imposing presence, said:
“Young Noble Li doesn’t need to worry about this. Listen to my advice and hand over the Godly Monarch Weapon; don’t make a mistake.”
Li Qiye looked around at everyone. Then, he slowly smiled and said:
“I am a person with a bad habit. When others want to oppose me, my blood can’t help but boil, and I have to sharpen my blades. Since this is a mistake, then good, I actually like mistakes.”
Finished speaking, Li Qiye recalled the old servant. He then directly pointed at Grandpa Guan and said:
“You, you, you, and you, and all of you.”
Li Qiye then pointed at the group of Dao Child Sheng Tian and Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan and freely said:
“Who do you think are! Godly Monarch Weapon, treasure of the gods? Even if I have it, I still wouldn’t give it to you. Enemies with the rest of the world? I love this type of matter the most. The Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom, in my eyes, is only scrap metal. Since all of you want to rob the treasure, then scram over here! I will fight all of you by myself!”
This unrestrained arrogance caused everyone to burst out in laughter. Dao Child Sheng Tian took a step forward and laughed:
“Blind little demon boasting shamelessly. Just with you alone?! I can slay you with just one hand!”
“Hah, just with a pretty boy like you? Why don’t you take another look at yourself. When your fiancee was facing trouble, you didn’t even try to rescue her. A cowardly, hypocritical bastard like you still has the face to consider yourself a genius of the Grand Middle Territory? In my opinion, it is more accurate to call you a fool.”
Li Qiye loudly gloated and spoke with disdain as he glanced at Dao Child Sheng Tian.
Li Qiye’s words immediately left Dao Child Sheng Tian livid. He coldly shouted:
“Little animal, I will hack you!”
He roared and swung one hand down vertically.
Li Shuangyan immediately slashed before Li Qiye could move. One slash alone was able to force Dao Child Sheng Tian to retreat. With her city toppling beauty, she coldly glared at him and said:
“Cowardly rats still dare claiming to be geniuses!”
Being looked down by Li Shuangyan enraged Dao Child Sheng Tian till he started to shiver with an ugly and pale expression.
“Enough nonsense! Hand over the Godly Monarch Weapon and I will spare your life!”
At this time, Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan lost his patience and stepped forward with a soaring aura. He was like a young heavenly king.
Li Qiye glimpsed at him and said:
“Spare me from death? Do you really think that you are your ancestor, Immortal Emperor San Dao, or Immortal Emperor Qing Xuan? Even if Immortal Emperor San Dao or Immortal Emperor Qing Xuan saw me, they still wouldn’t dare to bluster!”
“Accept your death…”
Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan roared and his azure aura immediately turned into a huge hand, carrying an invincible momentum, and swung at Li Qiye.
After a shout, the holy lotuses bloomed. Li Shuangyan maneuvered and blocked the strike from Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan. In the blink of an eye, her Void Imperfection Physique appeared with peerless sacred immortal lights; impervious to all magic, impenetrable by all things! A great amount of blossoming lotus petals propped up like the eternal blue sky. It was as if she was a banished fairy from the nine heavens.
“The so-called number one genius of the Grand Middle Territory, how about fighting me!”
Li Shuangyan stood up with complete domination. She was as cold as the mist, like a snow covered mountain with peerless grace.
“Good, good… Shuangyan, people will say that I am picking on the world, bullying with numbers. This would not be a good rumor.”
Li Qiye calmly said as he pulled Li Shuangyan back.
At this moment, Li Qiye looked at everyone and nonchalantly said:
“Wanting to snatch my treasure… I have no choice left but to kill all of you. One versus one, that would be my bullying you. All of you, come forward. Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan, Dao Child Sheng Tian, in my eyes, you all aren’t shit; I can kill all of you with just one hand.”
“Ignorant fool, rush up and tear him apart!”
Li Qiye’s arrogance angered everyone and one of them furiously exclaimed.
“Thats right, tear this little demon into eighteen pieces. Then we will divide the treasure.”
At this point, all of the cultivators who were forming a blockade at the back rushed forward with surging killing intent.
“Since you are seeking your own death, I will help you!”
With a chilling gaze, Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan stepped forward with a flowing azure aura that was as vast as the ocean.
Not only Heavenly Prince Qing Xuan, but Grandpa Guan, Enlightened Being Si Tu, Dao Child Sheng Tian also all rushed forward. They all wanted to seize the treasure to avoid being taken advantage of by others.
They not only wanted the treasure, but also wanted to capture Li Qiye’s group — including Li Shuangyan!
When they all wanted to take action, Li Qiye suddenly shouted.
“If you have any last words, it is not too late to say them.”
Dao Child Sheng Tian said.
Li Qiye smiled and said:
“Not last words, but I did say that I didn’t want to bully the world. We have so many people here so it is not fair. People will say I am using numbers to bully you all, so first, let me tell them to back off.”
Finished speaking, he signaled with a motion of his sleeve.
 Killing the chicken to take the eggs – doing something excessively, in this case, using higher rank cultivators to take all the treasures  Genius in Chinese = Tian(heavenly) Cai(talent). Li Qiye is calling him a Chun(silly/fat) Cai(talent) – This is a wordplay and it sounds funnier/cleverer in Chinese. Oh, “pretty boy” here is what people were calling Li Qiye earlier for relying on Li Shuangyan. It also means gigolo/useless man who can’t do anything
