Emperor Su Clan

Chapter 1148: Deepest Love

Li Qiye held her hand and stared at her incomparably beautiful features then smiled: “Sometimes, I feel that the world is too far away. Why the need to travel so far? If possible, I want to stop and start a family. Perhaps this isn’t a bad idea.”

“Don’t say that.” Her fingers gently pressed on his hand as she spoke with a tone as soft as water: “A man should be ambitious. Don’t worry about me or other women, we are only your shackles. You should go further, to the end of the world.”

She stared at him deeply and spoke gravely: “If I become something that stop your path, then I shouldn’t have appear in your life. In fact, this should be the case for any woman that you have met.”

Li Qiye chuckled and said: “When you put it that way, it jolted me a bit. Am I heartless or is it because of the circumstances?”

“It is not you or the circumstances.” She said: “In fact, I have never blamed you before. In this vast world, you have traveled for so many years, through countless hardships and troubles but you keep walking forward. Your life is at the end of the world, if you suddenly stop and give up, I don’t care what you think but at the very least, I feel that I would become a sinner if you did it for me. A sinner in cultivation history.”

Li Qiye gripped her jade hand and stared at her wondrous eyes to say: “Though the years are endless, when you have put it that way, how can I not persevere even more?”

She firmly said: “Many have went and fallen on this path. Emperors, gods, and heroes; all have became dried bones on their journey but I believe that in this generation, only you will reach the end and reach a new world. An entirely new world, after the primordial chaos, it will be a world started by you.”

“I got it!” Li Qiye became quiet. The cultivation path was long and arduous. Like he has said before, Immortal Emperor was only the beginning. The journey of the emperors and gods towards the end was not easy and paved with countless bones.

She said gently while still holding his hand: “My only regret is not being able to accompany you to the end of the world. What a shame that I won’t be able to see the most brilliant moment of your life.

He looked at him and said: “If you are willing, I can go again. I have a method to prolong your life, at the very least, for a very long time!”

“No.” She gently pressed her finger on his lips and said quietly: “I won’t be holding you back. So what if you are able to let me live longer? There is a price for everything in this world. This is not my choice. I just want you to be able to go forward without any worries.”

She stared at him deeply before becoming more serious: “I trust that in the last millions of years, I was not the only one who made this choice. Those who followed you and those who loved you must have made it as well. All of us do not wish to be the ones slowing you down on the path towards the grand dao.”

Her reply left Li Qiye speechless with a difficult emotion in his heart.

“Eternal life is too far away, giving up is not necessarily a bad thing.” She gently caressed his face before continuing: “On this path, no one can stay with you for one generation after another, no one can always share your pain and happiness. You need to rely on yourself and persist forward to the end! As for the others, they will slowly fade away with time.”

“If someone else becomes your shackle, causing you to stop, do you think that it will be worth it? No one else is worth anything on this path, understand? If you give up, you will no longer be you, no longer the the teacher of Immortal Emperors suppressing the nine worlds, no longer the wily Dark Crow that could fool the deities, no longer the man without fear!” She said.

“This path towards the grand dao is forever and a day!” He gently sighed and didn’t know what else to say.

During this long trek, so many people have left him. There were those who could still prolong their life but chose to let go.

For some of them, eternal life was not a happy matter due to the great price. He sent them off and there were times when he even buried them personally. What else did he feel in his heart except a sense of numbness from all of the partings?

“Don’t worry about eternality, just appreciate that we had it once!” She gently said while embracing his neck with an intimate gaze: “Even though I can’t leave behind any treasure for you, I can leave you an heir.”

After hearing this, Li Qiye laughed and held her beautiful and exquisite chin to gently say: “Passing on my everything is not easy.”

“I know.” She smiled firmly yet it still carried the beautiful trace of a woman’s shyness.

Li Qiye lowered his head to kiss her full, red lips. She closed her eyes and invited her lover while tightly hugging his neck…

***

The Mortal Emperor World was peaceful while the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect was thriving. It has reestablished its kingdom again after tens of thousand years of decline. It was ushering a new era of prosperity.

Li Qiye did not ask about the rebuilding of the kingdom. He cultivated in isolation with a focus on the Space Scripture, even more so than the Physique and Death Scriptures.

This was a long process. He eventually came out after a while to find Gu Tieshou coming to find him.

“Virtuous nephew, people from the sect master’s home, the Su Clan, is here.” Gu Tieshou immediately spoke after seeing him.

“People from the Su Clan?” His eyes slightly shifted after hearing this. The Su Clan was far away and has never asked about mundane matters but now, they were suddenly here?

“Did the sect master not come back?” He inquired.

Gu Tieshou shook his head: “No, the Su people came because of this since she didn’t return to the Su Clan either!”

He became a bit worried about this issue as well.

It was not easy for the sect to have a capable and talented sect master. Gu Tieshou understood that Su Yonghuang could definitely lead the sect to a new golden age. If anything happened to her now, it would be a great blow to Cleansing Incense.

“I understand, tell those people to come and meet me.” Li Qiye ordered.

Gu Tieshou acknowledged and immediately went to carry it out. The person from the Su Clan coming to meet Li Qiye was an old man. He was very scholarly; his demeanor slightly resembled Su Yonghuang.

“I have heard of your thunderous fame before.” The old man came and cupped his fists together before slightly bowing.

“You must be the Su Clan Master.” Li Qiye glanced at him and immediately knew that he was Su Yonghuang’s father.

Gu Tieshou at this time quietly left the room, leaving behind only Li Qiye and the old man.

The old man sat down and got straight to the point: “My daughter told me that if anything happens, I should come and see virtuous nephew.”

“If there is anything I can do to help, let me know.” Li Qiye spoke while looking at the old man. He was very protective of the Su Clan because he owed General Su back then.

The old man pondered for a moment before speaking: “My daughter has went to the Heaven Spirit World. There is still no news right now so I am quite worried.”

Li Qiye was slightly surprised before replying: “Your Su Clan has opened a secret pathway? Quite a rare thing.”

“You know about this as well?” The old man was shaken to hear this.

Li Qiye said flatly: “Not too many things can hide from me, plus the relationship between Cleansing Incense and the Su Clan is quite good. It shouldn’t be strange for me to know a few things.”

The old man eventually nodded his head and said: “Yes, my Su Clan has indeed opened the pathway and she went through it to get to the Heaven Spirit World!”

This secret pathway was a channel to go through the boundaries of the nine worlds. At this moment, the nine worlds were separated so it was quite difficult to go to the other worlds. Not even a Godking would dare to attempt this.

However, it was a different story if there was a secret pathway. But in the contemporary, fewer than few lineages had such a pathway. Moreover, it required a huge amount of refined jades. It was a very expensive price to pay. Thus, even if the particular sect had enough Immortal Emperor Refined Jades, they were not necessarily willing to open one.

Li Qiye left such a pathway to the Su Clan in the past so that they would have an escape in case a real calamity befalls upon them.

So when Su Yonghuang used this pathway to go to the Heaven Spirit World, it really surprised Li Qiye. After all, this secret passage couldn’t easily be used. The expenditure of the refined jades was one thing but more importantly, it could expose the coordinates of the Su Clan’s portal.
