“If my instruction between the connection of two Physique merit laws possesses a problem, then there wouldn’t be any perfect Physique merit law in this world! This merit law absolutely can merge with the Pure Jade Saint Merit Law you are currently cultivating. This Physique law is the ultimate progenitor of all Void Imperfection Merit Laws!”
Hearing Li Qi Ye’s words, Li Shuang Yan was in astonishment. This was the same as him admitting a particular matter, causing Li Shuang Yan to bewilderedly stare at Li Qi Ye. She hesitated for a moment, and she finally asked:
“This Physique merit law…”
“Correct, this Physique merit law originated from the Physique Scripture.”
Li Qi Ye interrupted her conjecture, looked into her eyes, and he said:
“But, this is only for you to know, understand?”
Li Shuang Yan gently nodded her head, still in amazed. She stared at Li Qi Ye, and she said:
“But, I-I heard that the Physique Scripture had not come into being for more than one million years! I also never heard about anyone ever possessing the Heavenly Scripture!”
The Nine Grand Heavenly Scriptures and the Nine Grand Heavenly Treasures — these were the supreme existences of this world. To cultivators, there was nothing in this world more valuable than the Nine Grand Heavenly Scriptures and the Nine Grand Heavenly Treasures.
However, since the beginning of time, no one had heard of anyone possessing a Scripture from the Nine Scriptures and a Treasure from the Nine Treasures!
They both never revealed themselves in this world, so many cultivators thought that their existences were only mere fabrications, that this world essentially did not have such things.
“Why is it strange?”
Li Qi Ye nonchalantly, and he amusingly smiled:
“After the Desolace Expansion Era, the Physique Scripture had never appeared in this mortal world!”
After he obtained the Physique Scripture, it was immediately hidden. From the past till now, people who have actually seen the Physique Scripture were very few.
Li Shuang Yan stared at Li Qi Ye. Finally, she didn’t know what to say. If Li Qi Ye didn’t personally pass down the Void Imperfection Physique to her, if Li Qi Ye didn’t personally say that he possessed the Physique Scripture, she would never ever believe that a fourteen year old boy would be the owner of the Physique Scripture. The whole world would think that he was boasting.
“Any other questions?”
Finally, Li Qi Ye asked.
Li Shuang Yan hesitated for a moment, and she finally asked:
“My Life Law and Fate Law, are there any defects?”
As a genius, asking a young boy much younger than her for advice — if others saw this, it would be an unexplainable matter.
In reality, when Li Shuang Yan saw Li Qi Ye teaching Nan Huai Ren’s crowd, she was not without temptation; she too wanted to ask Li Qi Ye for help. However, due to her pride and her inability to let it go, she was not able to ask him until the moment she swore with her True Fate. This shortened the distance between her and Li Qi Ye, so she was able to open her mouth for advice.
Li Qi Ye glanced at her, and he said:
“Regarding the Fate Law, your cultivation of the “Phoenix Bearing Method” has nothing to be critical about. This was a merit law passed down by your Progenitor, but it was not created by him. Don’t always think about Emperor merit laws; in reality, there are times when Emperor merit laws are not the most perfect choice…”
“The Phoenix Bearing Method was obtained by your Progenitor from an ancient heritage. It was created by an immortal sage from the Demon Race with an extremely old beginning. It was formed during the Desolate Era, and it perfected during the Desolate Expansion Era. In reality, during the Desolate Expansion Era, many grand unfathomable characters appeared; they studied the Phoenix Bearing Method, but they couldn’t perfect it. All the way till later, your Progenitor was fatefully fortunate, and he obtained the completed Phoenix Bearing Method.”
Regarding this matter, Li Qi Ye kept on speaking. Outside of the late Nine Saint Virtuous Paragon, no one else knew more than him. That year, when Nine Saint Virtuous Paragon was still calling himself Nine Saint Heavenly Demon, he was without a sect. Frankly speaking, the former past of Nine Saint Virtuous Paragon was a wild chicken. Later on, he fatefully found the Phoenix Bearing Method, and it allowed him to become an unbeatable Virtuous Paragon that had swept through that generation. He could be considered the peak of Virtuous Paragons!”
Li Qi Ye continued:
“As for your Life Law, the “Swan Cloud Method”, even though it is not a top Life Law of this world and there is indeed quite a distance between it and an Immortal Emperor Life Law, since you practice the Phoenix Bearing Method, you must choose the Swan Cloud Method. This method was created by your Progenitor because he studied the Phoenix Bearing Method his whole life. Then, he created the Swan Cloud Method Life Law that was the most suitable to go with the Phoenix Bearing Method.”
Hearing the smooth explanation of Li Qi Ye regarding her own methods, Li Shuang Yan was dumbfounded with her mouth open. Because she practiced these two, she formally knew the origins and circumstances of them. In reality, regarding these two methods, the disciples of the Nine Saint Demon Gate didn’t necessarily know so many things; thus, Li Qi Ye was able to continue on with a full understanding of it.
This caused Li Shuang Yan to be suspicious, and she asked:
“You really aren’t a disciple from our Nine Saint Demon Gate?”
A disciple from a different sect understanding the highest methods from her Nine Saint Demon Gate like this — if this got out, then even the elders of the Nine Saint Demon Gate wouldn’t believe it.
Regarding such words from Li Shuang Yan, Li Qi Ye couldn’t help but start to laugh, and he finally said:
“Merit laws and the Life Law are without problems to you. The truth is that you lack a Fate Protecting Killing Technique. However, your Dao foundation is based on the Phoenix Bearing Method and the Swan Cloud Method; a Fate Protecting Killing Method, you will have an opportunity to learn at any time.”
Here, he looked at Li Shuang Yan, and he said:
“I know that your Nine Saint Demon Gate has several Grand Killing techniques, but they are not fitting for you. Plus, you clearly put your focus on formations, so you have no way of cultivating these Grand Killing techniques to their true annihilating realms! As for the formations of your sect, they really aren’t so good, ah!”
Li Shuang Yan was a little unconvinced with Li Qi Ye’s words. Her Nine Saint Demon Gate had several grand formation techniques.
“You don’t need to be convinced.”
Li Qi Ye smiled and said:
“I saw your formation, and I immediately knew what were considered grand formations in your Nine Saint Demon Gate. It was simply a small insignificant corner from the Formation Ancestor. You all definitely obtained a small and incomplete manual from the Formation Ancestor; however, your grand formations were not even one part out of ten of the Formation Ancestor’s heritage.
Li Qi Ye’s words left Li Shuang Yan feeling dejected. The grand formations of the Nine Saint Demon Gate were renowned in the Grand Middle Territory, but, in the mouth of Li Qi Ye, they were not enough to reach the apex. She wanted to refute; however, Li Qi Ye revealed the entire origin of their formations, so she became helpless.
“You are adept in the Phoenix Bearing Method, not in the killing ways, so you are weak in your offensive capability. Regarding this, when comparing your talents to your battle prowess, a little gap indeed exists. Since you like formations, given the chance, I will find some Grand Killing formations for you that would be more suitable to your taste.”
Li Qi Ye finally came up with this conclusion.
Li Shuang Yan wanted to say something, but then she stopped. Li Qi Ye glanced at her, and he said:
“I know you have a corner of the Immortal Emperor Slaying Formation, but you need to listen to my words; don’t go completing it! It would be a waste of your talents! This corner of your Immortal Emperor Slaughtering Formation is pitifully incomplete. To expend your energy on this matter would be a waste of your sweat and blood. I admit that you are a genius, but, if you want to use this corner of the formation to understand the true profoundness — to be blunt — you don’t have the qualification! First, expend your effort on the Dao of cultivation.”
Hearing Li Qi Ye’s words, Li Shuang Yan couldn’t help but to ask:
“The Immortal Emperor Slaughtering Formation, is it still passed down to future generations?”
Unwittingly, she had considered the little boy in front of her as an all-knowing existence.
Li Qi Ye cheerfully smiled, dragging on his answer.
Seeing Li Qi Ye’s intentional teasing, Li Shuang Yan snappily glared at him, and she said:
“Don’t act mysterious, hurry up and say it.”
Again, her tone was unwittingly a little coquettish, unlike her normal cold as icy countenance; it was a very rare sight.
Li Qi Ye finally glared at her, and he said:
“Don’t focus your thoughts on the Immortal Emperor Slaughtering Formation. Even if you have the complete version, you don’t have the strength to understand it! As for the complete formation, in the future, there will absolutely be an opportunity.”
Here, Li Qi Ye quietly sighed in lamentation. The Immortal Emperor Slaughtering Formation — such a distant memory, such unbearable memories.
Seeing Li Qi Ye’s expression, Li Shuang Yan didn’t dare to ask anymore. Even though she didn’t know the story, she could guess that there was a hidden past that no one else knew about.
Obtaining Li Qi Ye’s instruction, Li Shuang Yan began to cultivate the Void Imperfection Physique. During this time, she finally realized what was a supreme Immortal Physique and what was an ultimate Immortal Physique! It was no wonder why Li Qi Ye didn’t bother looking at the Pure Jade Saint Merit Law; it was not comparable to this supreme Physique!
What made Li Shuang Yan emotional was that because Li Qi Ye taught her the mysteriousness of the Immortal Physique, if she still wasn’t able to complete it, then she would be the dumbest person in this world. So, to her, completing the physique was only a matter of time! Li Shuang Yan had ten parts confidence in successfully achieving the Void Imperfection Physique!
Meanwhile, after Li Qi Ye had cultivated for a month, he called for Nan Huai Ren:
“We will go to the Ancient Land to see the Ancient Land’s situation for a little bit.”
Hearing Li Qi Ye’s command, Nan Huai Ren immediately obeyed, and he said:
“My master had been to the Ancient Land a couple of times; I will invite him to lead the way.”
What was called the Ancient Land was the Ancient Land of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect. In reality, the ancestral land of the current Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect was only a tiny corner of its ancestral land that year.
That year, the ancestral land of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect were several hundreds of thousand miles long. After the sudden changes, and on top of the declinement of the sect, it caused the ancestral land of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect, today, to be reduced to a few main peaks.
Li Qi Ye wanted to return to the Ancient Land. Even though the five elders didn’t know what he wanted to do, they all agreed.
Besides Protector Mo, Nan Huai Ren and Li Shuang Yan also followed him.
