Chapter 232: Contention for the Underworld Boats (2)

Li Qiye remained silent while focusing his gaze on each boat as they came out. Just a moment later, the last gate master of the Thousand Emperors Gate finally made his move. He quickly stepped on top of an Underworld Boat. The moment he took action, everyone could clearly hear the crisp and clear sounds of bones breaking. Everyone who competed with him for the boat was grinded into mince-meat. Such a domineering scene caused everyone’s hearts to shiver.

“Truly worthy of coming from the Thousand Emperors Gate!” Even the ancestor of the War God Temple murmured in astonishment.

As the boats floated out, there were more and more people who aimed for them. However, there were too many Earth Corpses; even when more than ten thousand boats came out, each one was still highly contested.

The truth was that it was a huge gamble to climb up on an Underworld Boat. More than ten thousand boats flew out in every generation, but they were essentially death-boats. The legendary life-boats numbered at no more than three. Moreover, each of them prolonged one’s life for a different amount of time. A few gave dozens of years while others gave several hundred or even several thousand years. There was even a legendary one that flew out from hell and granted an entire lifetime!

“That one!” Finally, Li Qiye selected a boat for the War God Temple’s Forefather and immediately shouted towards the person inside the ancient coffin.

After Li Qiye’s words came out, with a “whoosh,” the wooden coffin rushed out and soared towards that Underworld Boat. This Underworld Boat was also contested by hundreds of people with the majority being Earth Corpses.

“Zhangggg–” The person inside the wooden coffin did not climb out. Instead, he only slashed a sword light outward. This sword light illuminated the nine spheres with a “phoosh” sound. The brilliance of this single sweep of the sword annihilated all undyings, Treasure Lords, and Earth Corpses as the wooden coffin flew towards the boat.

“Stars in the Sky Sword!” A grand character recognized the origin of this one sword after seeing the sword light. This Sacred Lord — with a shocked expression — exclaimed: “It’s the War God Temple!”

Upon hearing the words “War God Temple,” everyone felt a shiver inside. The War God Temple! This could be said to be one of the oldest existences in the Mortal Emperor World for its inception was during the Desolate Era. It still stood strong and had secret ties with many Immortal Emperors. It was both mysterious and powerful and had an unshakable foundation in this world!

Around this time, numerous people looked at the group of men dressed in black who were standing behind Li Qiye. They finally understood that Li Qiye was working for the War God Temple and helping their matter of burial! At the same time, many intelligent men were interested in the low-profile attitude of the War God Temple. Just who was the person being buried from the War God Temple?

As the boats gently floated downstream, Li Qiye finally told Li Shuangyan and Chen Baojiao: “This is my time to board. Both of you, along with the Nine Saint Demon Gate, should go back with these old men. No one will dare to cause trouble with them around. If I don’t come back in half a month, go back to the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect with Niu Fen’s group. You don’t need to worry about me.”

“What…” There were ten thousand words and questions in the minds of Li Shuangyan and Chen Baojiao, waiting to be spoken. They naturally didn’t want their young noble to board the Underworld Boat, but there was no way to persuade him.

“You want to go on the Underworld Boat?” At this time, even the ancestors of the War God Temple had their mouths wide open. Was this brat going insane? Only people near their death — with no other choice — would board the Underworld Boats. Everyone was aware that going on the Underworld Boat was akin to dying. The chance for life prolongment was truly miniscule; it was one out of ten thousand! However, this brat at such a young age actually wanted to board a ship — this was truly insanity.

“I should go now.” After seeing the last Underworld Boat fly out, Li Qiye spoke.

Meanwhile, Chen Baojiao and Li Shuangyan did not want to leave. They completely wanted to change Li Qiye’s mind, but the words would not come out. They were aware that no piece of advice would deter their young noble.

“If I die, then you guys are free. The sky will be high and the earth will be vast again; feel free to remarry.” Seeing the two girls’ reluctance to leave, Li Qiye made a joke. 1

“Mouth of a black crow!” Chen Baojiao couldn’t stop herself from exclaiming: “You will surely come back alive!” Having said this, her eyes became teary. 2

Li Shuangyan showed her cold-as-ice demeanor. The thousands of words waiting to be spoken in her mind only came out as one phrase: “I will wait for you to come back!”

“Go, wait for my triumphant return!” Compared to the two girls’ dejected sad states, Li Qiye — on the other hand — was quite lively. He shouted and commanded the Tetra-War Bronze Chariot to fly towards the last Underworld Boat.

At this point, even the last boat was being competed for by others. However, with the leaping Tetra-War Bronze Chariot and its neighing, Li Qiye thunderously shouted: “Scram!”

The four bronze horses rushed forward while kicking with their hooves. All contesters were kicked flying away as Li Qiye rode the chariot to the front of the boat’s bow.

“Go back, I will return.” On the bow, Li Qiye waved towards Li Shuangyan and the others as he smiled out loud.

“Have a good trip.” In the end, the beautiful eyes of Li Shuangyan and Chen Baojiao were filled with mist as their noses were feeling sore. They then waved back towards Li QIye.

With a gallant laugh, Li Qiye drove the chariot into the boat as its doors slowly closed.

After he embarked on the Underworld Boat, everyone became stunned. This was an unthinkable matter because everyone who went on these boats were near death. These people had all taken a large amount of longevity drugs and treasures along with immortal medicines and true dan. These people were no longer able to be cured and could only wait for their death. If they had any other options, who would be willing to go on these boats? One had to know that going on the boat was not much different from going to their demise!

However, Li Qiye was still young; he was only around fifteen to sixteen years old. The world was still beautiful to him, and his adventure had only just begun. However, this brat chose to go on the Underworld Boat; he had truly become insane.

“Is this kid out of his mind? He’s alive and well like this, yet he’s running to his death!” Many people became dumbfounded seeing the last boat drifting into the foggy layers down the river.

A few people found this to be unfathomable as they murmured: “This kid must be haunted by a suicidal Longevity Spirit. Only people who are tired of living would board the Underworld Boat!”

At this moment, no one understood the reason. It was understandable for the dead to board the ship, but a young person? Truly suicidal.

Saint Child Bao Zhu, with bright flashes in his eyes, was very excited. Li Qiye simply seeked his own death by boarding the ship! If Li Qiye didn’t come back, then that would be one less powerful enemy for him. What was regrettable was that this brat carried the supreme Immortal Physique to die!

Bai Jianzhen, the descendant of the Sword God Sacred Ground, was still cold and emotionless as always. She stared at the last ship floating down the river and couldn’t help but contemplate. This matter was really strange.

Meanwhile, Li Shuangyan and Chen Baojiao dejectedly sighed. They silently prayed for their young noble and hoped that he could return safely. They believed that he would be able to work a miracle and come back alive.

In fact, they were just as lost as the others. No one knew where the end of the Underworld River was. Once one boarded an Underworld Boat, only the people on the life-boats would come back alive; the rest will never return.

People began to evacuate after the end of the Underworld Boats because the Heavenly Ancient Corpse Burial Ground will soon recover its energy. If they did not leave now, then maybe they would die inside the burial ground.

Of course, many experts at their time of withdrawal started treasure hunting one last time before the burial ground recovered its strength. Naturally, many of them still died at this time for the burial ground was still a dangerous location even when all the Earth Corpses had not returned.

A great power was unlucky for they looted treasures on a Treasure Lord’s territory. One could only imagine the outcome; a Treasure Lord climbed up from the ground and annihilated everyone, causing heavy losses to this great power.

As for Li Shuangyan and Chen Baojiao, they went along with the Nine Saint Demon Gate and the War God Temple’s elders to leave the burial ground, to return to Ancient Sky City to wait for Li Qiye.

The Underworld Boats floated silently, and they were completely soundless inside as well. One did not know where they were floating; even if they opened the door, they couldn’t see the scenery outside. It was a vast nothingness with no visuals. Even the other boats were nowhere in sight.

It was as if there was only one boat gliding above this endless river and all the other ones had disappeared!

Inside the Underworld Boat, there was nothing else besides a bed. Li Qiye sat on it with a calm demeanor as if it was his own home. Li Qiye then took out an item from his Fate Palace. This was a stone tablet that was not too large; however, it was extremely heavy. The tablet had many holes and complicated runic lines were carved on top; these were completely undecipherable by others.

This stone tablet was taken by Li Qiye from the Treasure Armory of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect. Its elders did not know the usage nor effects of this stone tablet. The truth was that no one knew what it did, where it came from, or who took it. Everything was unknown ever since the historical annals of the sect were created.

The moment he obtained it, Li Qiye immediately knew that this stone tablet’s origin was frightening! Afterwards, he had always been researching this stone tablet.

One had to know that he had lived for an endless amount of time and had even trained Immortal Emperors. He had trod on the twelve Burial Grounds and six Great Immortal Former Earths — the places that humans didn’t dare to intrude! What had he not seen in this world? However, he had never seen this stone tablet before.

Recently, he had a little breakthrough while researching this stone tablet, so he came up with an idea.

  1. This is a joke. Remarriage is really frowned upon in ancient China
  2. She is saying that he is saying ominous words, so he is a black crow. I find this amusing because he is actually a Dark Crow

  1. I’m currently at chapter 119.. I’m thinking to drop this but I won’t..
    Characters are so… Ugghh.. If you don’t undergo Anger management..I’m sure you will hate this… Side character didn’t recognize Mt.tai.. But I know.. Why they are not recognize it coz’ It is in disguise.. Li Qiye.. Always stay low key that’s why they humiliate him.. So far it is not so good also not bad

    Ps. So many plot holes so far..

    1. ??? haven’t really noticed any plot holes so far, ya they don’t see mount tai, but thats normal, even when he just showed his power, people only relate that power to him utilizing his physique devil and not his true power. Even now when they finally knowing his power, they now wish death on him because hes a powerful enemy. Nothing wrong with wishing death on yo enemies.

    2. I have not noticed any plot holes. If the enemy not recognizing Mount Tai angers you, it happens a lot in this story. It also angers angers me as well, because how many times does he have to show his strengths?

      However, I have not noticed any plot holes. On the contrary, compared to other others, the author in this story is more consistent. For the most part, Li Qiye acts like someone that have been around thousands of years. Li Qiye is intelligent and domineering. Compared to other MC’s that had lived for hundreds or thousands of years, their idiotic actions are not expected of someone with many years of experience. Sometimes the author’s pull some plot out of nowhere to stop the MC from becoming powerful too soon.

    3. If the enemy not recognizing Mount Tai angers you, it happens a lot in this story. It also angers angers me as well, because how many times does he have to show his strength in order for his enemies to realize he is not weak?

    4. I haven’t seen a single plot hole in this story lol. I can vouch that I don’t think there’s even a single one. I think you just don’t know the difference between all of the terms yet, because before I knew the differences I perhaps also believed something similar. You might as well look at the glossary so you don’t make that mistake. 😉

      Anyway, this one’s really good. Something it’s annoying when he doesn’t stand out, but it’s also interesting because he’s quite showy when he chooses to be which is awesome and because he clearly is above all that so he doesn’t give a damn or care at all, which is also interesting. It’s nice to see someone smart actually being the main protagonist for once lol.

    5. I think i know your problem, you haven’t seen what happens in 80% of xianxia/wuxia/etc novels, and that is what i call, the “Licking MC’s birdie” or “Reaction time+ licking MC’s birdie”, i know why people likes that, that’s because novels are inmersive, i mean, you feel that you’re the MC and when MC is showing off and being amazing, you feel that you’re showing off and being amazing, just by knowing this i can tell that you’re 12-16 years old, and that you have an inferiority complex, i don’t want to be mean (pretty sure you already noticed hehe) but i hate when people repeats what they hear in youtube videos and critics (not even knowing what it means) only because it sounds cool and mature.

    6. well even though there is no real plothole/inconsistency so far in the main plot… there is still quite abit of questions left unanswered… which I hope he will get back too…
      For example, who exactly was that old man at the start of the novel, and why exactly he seemed to purposely waiting for the MC to appear in his real body form near the immortal demon grotto, and seemed to know him enough and trust him enough to give him the sect order thingy…
      Most plausibe theory I can make so far was the he probably was some kind of disciple from the dark dragon king or something along those line…

      Another seemingly minor detail was in the sealed world where they fought the thypa tree, the MC came across some entity/shadow that was underground and escaped as soon as mc saw it, we have yet to know what that entity was… take it, it is related to the being who messed up with the seal back in the ancestral land and also killed little Silly, if it is not actually the same being… anyway author will probably will come back on that one, not too worried about it… or at least hope he will
      For the most part the rest are just minor details about lore and story background… which half of the time MC main answer to those detail is MC just plainly going silent in speech and mind… but then again they dont really affect the main story line so. personnaly I dont really care whatever he come back on those details or not…

      1. I think you missed something somewhere. They did tell that the old man who was waiting for the MC at the start was the son of one the former Sect leaders.

  2. If was as if there was only one boat gliding above this endless river and all the other ones disappeared! >
    It was as if there was only one boat gliding above this endless river and all the other ones disappeared!

    atleast i think so

    thanks for the chapter

  3. The train of mystery is riding the river of imagination if the river of imagination was full of death and piss. Freaking Yellow river….

    Thanks for the chapter.

  4. How can all those people still think of him as being stupid, when they a few days ago saw how he destroyed the forces of three major powers thanks to his intelligens. They should all already know that his plans cant be compared with the like of them, which are light years behind. And its especcialy annoying how his followers still are stupid enough to not trust his desicons, wtf does he have to do before those retards understand that.

  5. Would’ve been a perfect chapter if Li Qiye did this :

    “Sigh, you two come here” Said Li Qiye in a touched manner.

    The two girls came over and stopped right in front Qiye.

    When the two girls were right in front of Qiye, an amazing thing happened…

    “Pa!”

    “Pa!”

    Suddenly, two resounding slap rang out.

    When the surrounding expectators reacted, everyone was stunned.

    Turning their heads to look, they saw a palm print on the two girls butts.

    “You!”

    When the two girls regained their wits they both shouted at the same time.

    “Neiggg…. Neeeigg…”

    But they were already too late. The sounds of horses screaming already sounded out.

    “Hahahahaha…. Now that was good stuff. Wait for my triumphant my good beautiful ladies. Wohooo!” After arriving at the something-something boat Qiye laugh like a Heavenly Emperor braving for another adventure.

    “Woohooooo, Oldest brother is the best!!!”

    “Oldest brother is handsome!!!!”

    At this moment Xu Pei and the rest suddenly appeared out of nowhere.

    *********

    “Meeheee… Meeeeheee…” By the time everyone left, there was a goat meeheeing.

    Others don’t know this but this goat was one of the beginning characters of ED, and it is the one who killed Little Silly and unsealed the mysterious underground under the Cleansing Incense Sect.

    “That day, you didn’t even find me after you became a Dark Crow!!! I’ll get revenge, revenge!!! Do you hear me?!!!!??!!” Thought the goat. Its eyes flashed for a moment.

    “Mee… Meheee…” Although the goat was only saying this its mind, it didn’t know that it was already saying this in the ‘goat’ language. And it was even laughing in a strange way.

    “Oi oi, what’s a goat doing here?” An expert ask another expert.

    “Oh, shoot! Humans. Smoke bomb!” After founding out that he was discovered, the goat crush a round ball that appeared out of no where, and smoke immediately came out.

    “Oh, it disappeared.” After the smoke disappeared, the expert was amazed that the goat already disappeared.

    “Mweee…” Little did they know that the goat is already under the Underworld river.

    *********

    “Huh, a goat?” When Qiye got on the boat he turned to look back. Unfortunately, the boat is surrounded by fog and he can’t see anything else.

    “Hmmm, a goat huh? I think I forgot about something about a goat in the Desolate era.”

    “Naa, only an insignificant useless piece of crap, thing. Not enough to reach the apex.” After thinking and still can’t think what it was he give up, and turn his head to look at his hands.

    “Ahhh, that was smooth. Having a body really is great.”
