Emperor Trench

Chapter 1191: Bloodline

After seeing the Void Imperfection Clouds, the schoolmaster became less tense and patted his chest: “You are one of us then, then we can talk much easier.”

With that, his face turned a bit bitter as he looked at Li Qiye: “If you just have taken the clouds down in the beginning, then we wouldn’t have to do anything. I got quite a scare just now, my old bones can’t handle this torture…”

“Sorry, sorry, I just got here to the school so I forgot. “Li Qiye smiled and said.

Both the schoolmaster and Ye Tu calmed down. They didn’t want to fight at all.

“Our Void Imperfection Three Schools do have an ancestral teaching. Since you could bring down the clouds, you are part of our family so we won’t say no.” The schoolmaster told Li Qiye.

Li Qiye gently nodded: “If Immortal Emperor Wu Gou has left behind a teaching, then nothing can be better. However, I have no other requests, only the same as earlier, to take water from the Void Imperfection Spring.”

“I’m sure it will be fine.” The schoolmaster said quickly: “Let me go report this to the ancestors to find out the ancestral whale’s location. Once we find out, I’ll inform you immediately.”

Li Qiye agreed: “Very good, let me know when you find out. I’ll be staying at the Shallow Beach.” Having said that, he stood up.

The schoolmaster noticed that he was about to leave so he rubbed his palms and wanted to hold the guest back. He said with a smile: “It isn’t easy for you to come here so why not stay? Check out our pretty sceneries and allow me to play the part of a good host.”

Li Qiye laughed and told the schoolmaster: “Don’t tell me you want me to pick a bunch of ladies from the school?”

Such words were too direct so the schoolmaster coughed awkwardly. He became a bit embarrassed and smiled: “If you like any lass from our school, you can take her away anytime.”

“A girl isn’t an object.” Li Qiye chuckled and shook his head.

The schoolmaster smiled but he spoke with a serious tone: “All along in the Heaven Spirit Worlds, many things remained unchanging. It is this way in the past and shall be this way in the future. Who can escape the trend of reproduction for the greatness of a race?”

“Yes, not just Heaven Spirit, a few things will never change in the nine worlds.” Li Qiye has grown accustomed to this type of marriage.

This matter happened a lot in the rest of the nine worlds as well. Countless lineages also searched for allies using marriage.

The three grand races here were bit different. They wanted excellent human bloodlines in order to have descendants with brilliant talents and bloodlines.

The schoolmaster said earnestly: “Virtuous Nephew, you have an imperial bloodline, even if you don’t care for the charming spirits or the other races, you should still consider doing something for your own sake. Your precious bloodline should be passed down. In this regard, do you think there is a more suitable race than charming spirit to be your match?”

This was not boasting. In the nine worlds, there were many races but none of them dared to claim to be better than the charming spirits. They were called the favorites of the heavens. This was not something they claimed themselves but a fact recognized by many races.

Li Qiye looked at him and said: “Your Void Imperfection School wants more than just an excellent bloodline. You also want to imitate Immortal Emperor Gu Chun’s four branches as well as training an ultimate Immortal Emperor, even if it is a human one.”

“It is not just our school. The other charming spirits, treants, and sea demons are also doing the same, right?” The schoolmaster replied.

“The legend is not necessarily true.” Li Qiye said insipidly.

Among the charming spirits or even the entire Heaven Spirit World, there was a legend. It states that when an imperial bloodline from the human race comes together with an excellent charming spirit’s bloodline, this would make the human bloodline even more perfect and stronger.

At the same time, the charming spirit’s bloodline would increase as well and its potential would be excavated to the extreme.

This all started with Immortal Emperor Yan Shi. She was an extremely unbelievable Immortal E Emperor so people took notice of this.

In fact, there were some evidences on this later on as well. After the emperor, the four branches of Immortal Emperor Gu Chun passed down even better and had a large number of outstanding bloodlines.

With this result, future generations believed that a human imperial lineage had a great optimizing effect on the charming spirit’s bloodlines.

Due to this, human imperial bloodlines were especially welcomed whenever they appeared in Heaven Spirit. They were absolutely the best among stallions.

“Well, well, without trying, how would we know if it is true or false?” The schoolmaster laughed and said.

In his mind, the schoolmaster really wanted Li Qiye to stay at the three schools. If they could have his bloodline as well, it would fortify their status.

“Oh? You want to steal the Golden Isle’s groom?” Li Qiye couldn’t help but chuckle: “If I am not mistaken, your Void Imperfection School has never interfered with mundane matters or compete with others.”

The schoolmaster smiled naturally in response: “Nephew, you still haven’t married the miss from the Ye Clan so how can this be considered stealing their groom? Plus, even if you have married, this is no big deal. Since the start of times, heroes always had many companions.”

“I see, you want me to turn into the best of stud to spread my seeds everywhere.” Li Qiye laughed and shook his head: “I have no interest in this, however.”

The schoolmaster opened his mouth in order to say something but Li Qiye waved his hand: “I’m not interested in even better conditions. It’s not like the Golden Isle haven’t tried before.”

The schoolmaster could only sigh softly after hearing this but he still didn’t give up: “You are still one of us, our doors will always be open for you. One day when you are tired of drifting in this world, you can come and stay with us here, at Void Imperfection.”

“Thank you.” Li Qiye didn’t refuse the schoolmaster’s kindness. He smiled and turned to leave.

He went back to the Shallow Beach afterward. Meanwhile, Ye Tu was with him the entire time while entertaining him with great enthusiasm.

“You are the regional supervisor here, don’t you have work to do?” Li Qiye looked at him with one eye and asked after seeing the youth working so hard.

Ye Tu smiled and said: “Our Void Imperfection School aims for serenity and going with the flow. There is nothing to do normally so we just sit there in a daze. Since you are here to be our guest, let me be as good as a host as possible lest others consider us to be inadequate with our hospitality.”

Li Qiye smiled and knew that this was the schoolmaster’s idea so he didn’t chase him away.

After two days, Teng Jiwen finally came. He bowed after seeing LI Qiye and said: “Under the command of the forefather, this junior is here to obey your commands, sir. Just let me know when you require my service.”

“Okay, no need for formality, I am not that old.” Li Qiye gently waved his sleeve and told him to stand up.

Ye Tu also recognized Teng Jiwen and quickly chatted with him.

“Okay, if the two of you want to follow me, come then.” Li Qiye glanced at the two before leaving the Shallow Beach.

The two looked at each other and didn’t know what Li Qiye wanted to do. They hurried to catch up anyway.

After leaving the beach, they continued to go straight on the seabed for a long distance.

This was the Void Imperfection School’s territory so Ye Tu was very familiar with it whether it was the surface or the seabed. He looked at the scene along the way and murmured: “Ahead is the Bottomless Trench, are we really going there?”

“Yes and no.” Li Qiye answered while comfortably leading the way. He strode while being untouched by water as if he was gliding through the water. This pace of movement was very elegant like the drifting clouds and flowing current.

Ye Tu calculated the time and said: “A bit from now will be the season of the needle fishes. Young Noble, could it be that you are here for them?”

“Needle fishes?” Li Qiye smiled and shook his head: “You are underestimating me too much. Needle fishes can be regarded as precious, a fish king can barely be considered top grade, but they can’t get into my eyes.”

“The Bottomless Trench?” Teng Jiwen thought about a legend and speculated: “Sir, are you here for the legendary sea-crossing shuttle then?”

“Yes and no.” Li Qiye smiled and said flatly: “Your thinking might not be as quick as Ye Tu, but you are much more meticulous than him.”

“Sea-crossing shuttle?” Ye Tu heard and was surprised: “Legend has it that the shuttle has disappeared for a very long time now. Until now, all three great races of the Heaven Spirit World have been searching down at the Bottomless Trench until now, especially us charming spirits who did it every single generation.”

“Certain things will appear when it is the right time. The disappearance is only due to outsiders not knowing about its existence.” LI Qiye said plainly: “Like your ancestral whale as well, it also disappeared to those who are unable to see it.”

Ye Tu felt that this explanation made sense after hearing him.

Chapter 1192: Bottomless Trench

According to the legends, the Bottomless Trench was the deepest and longest trench in Heaven Spirit.

For many years now, so many people have explored this particular trench but none have been able to do so fully.

Someone once said that this trench was long enough to cross the entire Jade Sea. Its depth remained a mystery because no one has been able to reach the bottom.

It spanned further than the territory of the Void Imperfection Three Schools and brought about a different landscape to this region.

This was especially true closer to the three schools. It has been said that this end of the trench near the Shallow Sea was the most beautiful stretch.

When Li Qiye’s group got closed. They saw a beautiful sight full of coral forests.

This coral field might spanned for thousand of miles along the two sides of the trench. Such a great field was truly spectacular and could only be seen at Heaven Spirit.

As far as the eyes can see, there were all kind of colorful corals with varying shapes. Some were as large as trees growing from the bottom of the sea all the way to the surface. Under these trees, seaweeds were swaying about with happy fishes. There were also caves full of shrimps and crabs as well as large turtles lounging about…

Some grew in a criss-cross pattern and intertwined together into a huge maze. If one entered this cave of corals, they would surely get lost.

All in all, this field was a dazzling spectacle with indescribable and unforgettable charms.

A depression emerged after crossing through this field completely. This was the renowned Bottomless Trench. It was so broad to the point where it seemed like it was tearing the whole sea apart.

It was completely black looking down into the trench like a monster’s gaping jaw that could devour anything that fell in there. It was a reason for fear and awe.

The group stopped inside the coral forest and didn’t go further. Li Qiye glanced meticulously at a huge coral.

The two of them didn’t know what Li Qiye wanted to do. They stood behind him with bated breath and didn’t dare to disturb.

Next, Li Qiye was as swift as lightning. His fingers swept forward with speed beyond the two’s perception.

He then spread his palms before Teng Jiwen and Ye Tu to show an insect with fuzzy hair around a finger length. This kind of insect was squirming on his palm and gave quite a creepy feeling. 1

“Okay, since the two of you are here, I’ll entrust this important matter to you. Catch these insects for me, the more the better. Afterward, roast and grind them to powder.” Li Qiye threw the insect over to these two.

The two were quite perplexed and didn’t know the purpose of this bug catching session. Nevertheless, they followed his order without saying anything by searching through these coral trees.

These two both had great statuses. One was a supervisor of the Void Imperfection School while Teng Jiwen was even better. He was the prestigious successor of the Heavenvine Citadel but today, they obediently acted as Li Qiye’s followers to find these insects.

After passing this menial matter over to these two, Li Qiye didn’t stay here. He left for the surface of the sea and began to walk on water.

After walking a bit while gazing at the sky, he would plop down and began to float with his face up through the water. He closed his eyes as if he was sleeping.

The sea was quiet and moved Li Qiye along. The entire process was without sound as if Li Qiye was one with the sea at this moment.

He slept and let the sea took him wherever. This day passed by just like this.

“Are you Young Noble Li?” Some time later, a sweet and clear voice came about as Li Qiye was drifting about.

Li Qiye opened his eyes to see a pretty maid standing on the waves as if she was a fairy. It was a beautiful scene.

“Yes, what?” Li Qiye closed his eyes and lazily replied.

“Young Noble Li, my madam wishes to invite you. Will you please follow me?” The pretty maid told Li Qiye.

“I’m busy.” He answered idly again: “Tell her to come and see me.”

The pretty maid didn’t know what to say against this rude response. After a while, she said: “Young Noble Li, my madam is the schoolmaster of the Sacred Spring…”

“This uncle is not free.” Li Qiye waved his sleeve and didn’t bother opening his eyes: “Even if it is the supreme ruler of the heavens, if he wants to see me, let him come here.”

The pretty maid turned red. She has never been in such a situation before with this type of arrogant and rude person.

She hesitated for a bit before not saying anything and floated away.

Li Qiye acted as if nothing has happened and let the waves pushed him again as he immersed himself into the water.

More time passed and an extremely melodious voice came about: “I didn’t know Young Noble Li was busy. Please excuse my uninvited visit and disturbing you.”

This voice was very pleasant, sharp and clear yet silky soft. In this softness was a hint of allurement. In the allurement was a touch of elegance. Anyone would feel comfortable and relaxed after hearing this.

It was easy to imagine how elegant this woman was just from listening to her voice. She was mature and charming in a refined manner. This was a natural born empress.

Li Qiye opened his eyes again to see a woman standing on the sea. She wore a faint yellow dress with a simple white flower in front. Her figure was graceful and ripe.

She looked nearly thirty with an exceptional aura full of grandeur at first glance. Her maturity made it seems like she was a married woman yet within this sophisticated charm was a refreshing sensation of a young maiden.

These different auras combined together perfectly into an exquisite appeal.

She was not to the level of being peerless. Her appearance was not as incredible as Ming Yexue or Mei Suyao. She was still inferior compared to Li Shuangyan and Chen Baojiao as well.

However, her special charm like a new bride could truly pull on others’ heartstring. Her dress didn’t wrap that tightly around her body but her curves were apparent and attractive.

This charm resembled a grape ripe to just the perfect level. She was neither overly mature nor innocent. Inside the purple skin was the sweet flowing juice. Anyone would want to pick this grape and have a taste of the flavor within.

“Not a bad job at cultivating the Sacred Spring Physique.” Li Qiye glanced at her and stated before closing his eyes again.

The girl shuddered after hearing this. Li Qiye could tell her information from just one glance. This type of perception was too frightening.

She bowed and sid: “Thank you for your praise. My name is Zhuo Jianshi, currently in charge of the Sacred Spring School. Please excuse my lack of courtesy today for the sudden visit.” 2

“I know, to be able to cultivate the physique to this level, you can indeed handle the schoolmaster position.” He said plainly.

She was not offended by his rather rude and haughty demeanor and sat down next to him on the water surface.

“We haven’t been able to show our hospitality to you ever since you got here…” Her noble demeanor was also natural and quite approachable.

Li Qiye waved his hand and interrupted her: “Speak if you will and fart if you must, do not beat around the bush with me. I’m not in the mood to guess and waste time.”

Such overbearing attitude made her lament the situation secretly. She was an influential person as one of the schoolmasters from Void Imperfection. However, Li Qiye simply didn’t take her to heart.

“I would like to invite you to my Sacred Spring School as a guest.” Eventually, she took a deep breath and spoke earnestly.

“I see, it is still the same thing. Everyone views me as the best stallion. You surely want me to go there and find different ladies to get real close to me and take my seed.”

These words were too direct and sexual, leaving Zhuo Jianshi speechless momentarily.

An imperial bloodline like Li Qiye was too precious for the charming spirits. This was the same for their Sacred Spring School so they wanted to recruit him to their school.

  1. Not sure what kind of insect this is since it isn’t clear. Not a clear word for worm, caterpillar, or something else so keeping insect to play it safe
  2. She is very respectful this time, referring to herself as little girl. “This little girl is Zhuo Jianshi”
