Emperor Profound Sea

Chapter 1187: Treatment

“Crackle!” Just a moment later, the particles surfaced again. Moreover, it was much more numerous than before as if more have just been produced.

The aghast youth screamed: “Master, save me!”

“Sir, please save my little disciple.” The citadel lord didn’t expect this to happen at all. His soul was leaving his body from fear and quickly asked Li Qiye for help.

“Don’t move about!” The Sunflower Forefather shouted: “This is an infection, the more you try to resist, the stronger it will be. You are not the ancestral vine so it can refine you right away!”

Teng Jiwen couldn’t stand straight anymore after hearing this from fear. He asked Li Qiye to help as well: “Sir, please save me!”

After seeing the boy’s appearance, Li Qiye laughed and shook his head: “You are overstating this. With me here, no need to be so alarmed. It is not like I will stand and watch you die.”

Teng Jiwen heaved a sigh of relief after hearing this. With Li Qiye’s assurance, it seemed that his life would be saved.

“Not bad.” Li Qiye glanced at the particles on his body and said: “It is not only untouchable since it will disperse right away, it can spread with extreme speed as well. Unfortunately, it has met me.”

With a smirk, he took out the Myriad Heavenly Cauldron and easily took out a bunch of fire strands.

“Don’t move or resist, just let it be.” Li Qiye looked at him and said.

He nodded after a deep breath: “I’ll keep that in mind…”

But before he could finish, Li Qiye immediately inserted one fire strands after another into his body. All of a sudden, he was like a ragdoll with many fire strands coming in and out of his body.

As these tiny fire strings drilled into his body, he didn’t feel hot at all. Conversely, he felt cold lines running through his blood vessels. This chill seemed to be able to freeze his blood.

One would find this hard to believe if they weren’t personally experiencing it. The scorching fire in Li Qiye’s cauldron was actually cool.

After a while, he had an illusion that it wasn’t blood running through his body anymore but a cold fire.

At this time, Li Qiye began to recall the fire strands. In the beginning, Teng Jiwen didn’t feel anything. A bit later, he felt as if very little items were being pulled out along with these fire strands. These things all latched on to the fire strands and left his body.

More and more light particles were attached to Li Qiye’s fire as if it was a magnet that was absorbing all of them from the youth’s body.

Teng Jiwen eventually felt his body becoming lighter. There was an indescribable sense of ease. He knew then that all of the particles have been dragged out by Li Qiye.

“Boom!” In a split second, the flame in the cauldron surged out and turned vicious. It refined all of the particles taken out of his body.

Although these particles wanted to attack, the cauldron was too ferocious. Under Li Qiye’s control, there was no chance for a counteroffensive. They were melted to ashes right away.

“Thank you for saving my life, sir.” Teng Jiwen was finally relieved and prostrated to the ground.

The citadel lord did the same and said gratefully: “Sir, your skill is one and only in this world.”

The forefather saw Li Qiye’s supreme alchemy and became relieved as well. Their citadel has finally met their savior. The ancestral vine could finally be saved…

In the next couple of days, the disciples at the citadel could feel a different atmosphere. The whole place became quite tense. Several days later, their ancestral vine suddenly trembled so the citadel quaked as well. Some palaces and mountains on top were collapsing…

In this short period, all of these disciples became restless and felt that a disaster was looming over their head and could descend at any time.

In particular, the ancestors knew the gravity of the situation. The entire citadel entered the highest state of alert and were ready to help any time in case something happened.

These days drowned by anxiety eventually came to an end. Although the disciples didn’t know what was going on, they could sense that the clouds have melted along with the dispersing mists. Some even felt that their ancestral vine’s branches were stretching as if the disaster has passed.

These ancestors finally found solace. The citadel was finally saved.

In these few days, Li Qiye was brought outside by the forefather’s group. He was very tired at this moment from extinguishing the calamity.

He was treated as the most esteemed guest. Even the forefather himself personally stood guard for him, not letting anyone come close to disturb his rest.

Li Qiye took out all types of immortal medicines. He has spent a lot of blood energy to destroy the calamity but his recovery was quite swift as well.

After he was fine, the forefather came to see him. He bowed the moment he saw Li Qiye and said: “Your kindness is indescribable by words. Just give us a command in the future if you ever require our service.”

Li Qiye gently nodded and waved his sleeve: “Rise, a deal is a deal. Since I have promised you, I naturally carried out my end of the bargain.”

Nevertheless, the forefather still felt very grateful. He respectfully held the Heavenvine Calabash and spoke: “This is the calabash that you wanted, please take a look.”

Li Qiye glanced at it and put it away. For him, this was one step closer to replenishing the Peacock Tree’s life.

“May I ask if you will be willing to spend more time at our citadel so that we can do our best as your host.” The forefather hurriedly said.

Li Qiye looked at him and quipped; “Don’t tell me you want me to be your citadel’s disciple?”

“No, I wouldn’t dare!” The forefather quickly waved his palms back and forth: “Ah, sir, you are the true dragon above the nine heavens. The Heavenvine Citadel is too tiny and can’t accommodate you. Of course, if you are willing to take the title of being our Vine Controller, it will be our honor.”

The forefather was certainly eager for Li Qiye to stay. If this was possible, then their citadel could fine once again.

Li Qiye only smiled and shook his head: “I am only a passerby for your citadel and this Heavenspirit world. This horizon is not my place, I am only here to sightseeing for a bit.”

The forefather sighed and replied: “Sir, you are a peerless master. I suppose the citadel doesn’t have this fortune.”

He understood that an opportunity like this couldn’t be forced. It was not meant to be for their citadel.

Li Qiye said flatly: “Teng Jiwen from your citadel is not bad, so I’ll have him follow me for a bit…”

“… I won’t teach him other things but with regard to your ancestral vine, I will teach him a few stuff. After communicating with your ancestral vine, I have obtained some insights from it so I’ll be passing that back to your citadel.”

After reaching an agreement with the ancestral vine, Li Qiye had a deeper understanding of its origin.

“This is his fortune.” The forefather was ecstatic and quickly cupped his fist before immediately telling someone to call Teng Jiwen over.

In just a moment, both Teng Jiwen and his master came over. After hearing this, Teng Jiwen was elated. His master was quite happy for him as well.

Today, Teng Jiwen becoming the next successor was a sure thing. If he could learn more knowledge from the ancestral vine, he would definitely be able to shine in the future.

“Thank you for your guidance.” The citadel lord calmed down and quickly dragged Teng Jiwen who was still standing there silly to the ground to express his gratitude.

“Rise.” Li Qiye said: “After communicating with your ancestral vine, I only focused on a few things that I found interesting. As for your vine’s knowledge, it is of no use for me so I will return it to your citadel. This is a type of fate, a natural part of life.”

In spite of this, the citadel lord was still very happy for his disciple. This would definitely be a way to help him communicate with the ancestral vine.

“Okay, go back and get ready.” Li Qiye gently waved his hand: “You are to meet me at the Shallow Beach. I will go ahead.”

Teng Jiwen respectfully bowed and immediately went to prepare.

Li Qiye had other business. He has gotten the calabash so he didn’t want to stay at the Heavenvine Citadel for too long. His departure started on this same day.

At this time, outside of the Sunflower Forefather himself, all of the high ranking ancestors also went to see him off.

The forefather really wanted Li Qiye to stay for several more days so they could treat him even better but he didn’t dare to hold Li Qiye back since he insisted on leaving.

“Take care of yourself.” Li Qiye looked at the forefather before casually pointing once. A portal emerged. He stepped inside and instantly crossed through space.

Chapter 1188: Shallow Beach

The Shallow Beach was surrounded with blue sky and white clouds as well as a green sea ladened with underwater shoals. Occasionally, some peaks would be exposed on the water surface. One side was a cliff facing while the other was a beach with white sands wetted by the undulating waves.

There were also seabirds flying while fishes were leaping from the water. It was a peaceful and beautiful scene.

The truth was the beach was not so quiet. This was only on the surface of the sea. The undersea was where it was lively.

Mountains were running beneath next to chasms. Seaweeds were swaying to the current among the forest of corals. Some sea trees were towering down here as well…

The Shallow Beach didn’t mean that it was a shallow sea. It was because this place was close to the surface, hence the name.

Pavilions and palaces were built below the beach, coming together to form a city under sea. Streets led to all the corners of the city as well as bridges. It was very prosperous and busy beautiful world under the sea.

The structures were immersed in water here. Some expelled water and formed their own space just like the mainland.

People came and went to the Shallow Beach. Some were riding seahorses straight through the water without being stained at all. Some rode their shuttles with great speed yet silent. Those who were part of the sea rode gigantic whales that didn’t lose their elegance while gliding through the water.

Among the crowd were elegant charming spirits, treants with oppressive wooden affinity as well as many bizarre sea demons.

Some walked through the city completely unstained by the water so they looked quite graceful while doing it. Some avoided the sea and chose passages with invisible walls pushing the water out. Others were completely soaked with water and some sea demons remained their demonic form to go even quicker.

This beach was a property of the Void Imperfection Three Schools. To be more exact, it was part of the Void Imperfection School. Because of this, the city was very peaceful; sea demons and treants wouldn’t dare to cause trouble here.

The Void Imperfect Three Schools wasn’t only famous in the Jade Sea. It was renowned even in all of the Heaven Spirit World. It was a monster that could cause a huge flood with one stom.

It was created by Immortal Emperor Wu Gou. In future generations, it was divided into three different schools in the following order: Void Imperfection School, Evil Devourer School, and Sacred Spring School.

Even though it was divided into three separate schools, it was still one singular heritage. More often than not, they still communicated with outsiders as one sect.

This was the lineage with the highest amount of Immortal Physiques. Someone once said that in the nine worlds in terms of having the most Immortal Physiques, there was no other sect but the Void Imperfection Three School. The Progenitor of the school was Immortal Emperor Wu Gou. He was not only an emperor but also a user of the Void Imperfection Physique at grand completion! Later on, they had another two grand completion Immortal Physiques. These two didn’t cultivate the Void Imperfection Physique but the Heaven Devourer Evil Physique and Sacred Spring Physique, respectively.

In order words, the school once had three different people with grand completion Immortal Physiques. This was a great achievement in all of the nine worlds, hence their reputation.

The Shallow Beach belonged to the Void Imperfection School. Because of this, people built this great under sea city without seeing trouble or opposition.

In an inn below, Li Qiye sat near a window to watch the street downstairs while drinking his wine.

This inn was quite interesting. It was built next to a mountain. Above was a whirlpool that was used to brew the very famous wine found here.

He continued to drink while watching fishes swim right beside him. Occasionally, one or two naughty crabs would climb on his table and raised their claws to intimidate Li Qiye to his amusement.

He was untouched by a single drop of water. It was no different than sitting in an inn on land.

After finishing another cup, he shouted: “Boss, another cup.”

“Coming!” The boss of this place answered right away. He was a sea demon with a muscular body. Perhaps his ancestor used to be a whale demon because there were still two clumps of flesh resembling a beard on his chin. This was the most recognizable characteristic.

A little whirlpool from the larger one at the top of the inn streamed down into Li Qiye’s cup after the boss’ affirmation and filled it to the brim instantly.

Li Qiye smiled and continued to drink. Such an amazing thing could only happen at Heaven Spirit.

As a human, he was the most conspicuous in this inn. After all, humans were quite rare outside of the Peacock Land and Exquisite Valley. It was not easy to spot them in other locations.

Of course, no one came to cause trouble either. They were only curious about a human so they looked at him a a few more times out of curiosity.

While he was drinking, a luxurious boat docked outside of the inn. The entire hull was outlined with gold and decorated with an emblem reserved for royalty. It was both extravagant and imposing.

Such a big ship swimming in the sea seemed to be one with the ocean. However, it was also completely unstained by water which made it very obvious to others that it was an incredible treasure.

“A ship from the Profound Sea Dynasty, why is it here?” Someone saw the royal emblem hanging on the ship and said in astonishment.

Next, a maiden walked down from the lavish boat. She was charmingly beautiful like an oriole. Her long dress dragging on the ground revealed a very noble aura.

There were several followers behind her. This made her great status apparent.

Someone recognized her identity after she came inside the inn and whispered: “Gongsun Qianer, why is someone from the Profound Sea God-Monarch’s camp here at the Jade Sea?”

The girl went up the inn and ordered some wines and dishes without saying anything else.

Li Qiye only looked at her once without paying too much attention. He finished his wine and called for the boss. After handing money over, he asked: “Boss, has the door to the Void Imperfect School opened yet?”

“Great immortal, this lowly one doesn’t know too well.” The boss rubbed his palms together and smiled awkwardly: “I am only a little merchant so I don’t know anything about the world of immortals.”

Li Qiye couldn’t help but laugh and leisurely said: “Is that so? I was actually wanting to ask you more about the ancestral whale.”

“How could this lowly one know anything about such grand events? Immortal, you should ask the disciples from the Void Imperfect School about it.” The boss smiled wryly.

Not too many people cared when Li Qiye mentioned the ancestral whale because they didn’t know what it was. However, the girl sat not far from there. Her brows furrowed after hearing the word, “ancestral whale”.

She came from a great background and has heard her master talk about it so after Li Qiye brought it up, she looked at him and shouted: “Hey! You were asking about the ancestral whale of the Void Imperfection Three Schools?”

Li Qiye lazily glanced at her without answering. He looked back at the boss and said: “In that case, nevermind then.”

Gongsun Qianer was not happy about being ignored. Her expression sank as she coldly said: “Just a human yet you still dare to be pretentious!?”

She was used to being arrogant. Her boss was a concubine of the Profound Sea God-Monarch. As her master’s confidante, she could be said to be able to call for winds and rains back in the Profound Sea Dynasty. But now, a little human was ignoring her.

“Boy, are you listening? Master is asking you.” Her follower immediately shouted at him.

Li Qiye didn’t bother with them and turned to leave. Her entourage couldn’t stand it any longer so they slammed the table before wanting to stop him.

“Great immortals, great immortals, please don’t be angry.” The boss immediately tried to smooth things over: “Arguing here will disturb the peace of the Shallow Beach, please take it easy on us.”

“Forget it, only an ignorant junior.” She coldly waved her sleeve and snorted while looking at Li Qiye’ back.

She didn’t really care for a human brat like him but this was the territory of the Void Imperfect School. She didn’t want to cause trouble in this place.

After leaving the inn, he headed southward till he came before a huge trench.

With the sun shining down, this was a place full of green rocks and seagrasses. It gave others a very comfortable and peaceful feeling.

In Heaven Spirit, every single sea, even at their depth, could enjoy the sunlight.

Legend has it that there were two suns in Heaven Spirit. One illuminated the sky and the continents. The other shined down on the bottom of the seas. Because of this, underwater creatures could bask in its gentle warmth as well.
