“My Patriarch?” Li Xuanqi was totally shocked and couldn’t believe his ears at this moment. He definitely didn’t expect that one of his Patriarchs would still be alive now. Although this Patriarch said he had sealed himself away many years ago, which could explain why he was still at the Half-Celestial Stage, this explanation seemed a little bit sketchy and weird for Li Xuanqi.
However, when Li Xuanqi joined the Heaven Palace Sect, he was just a temporary apprentice. Then he was banished because he did something wrong. Therefore, Li Xuanqi didn’t know a lot about the Heaven Palace Sect, even though he had deep feelings for it. When Li Xuanqi was banished, his Master still provided him with instructions, magic arts, and many other resources for his cultivation. His fellow apprentices also visited him from time to time and also took him with them when they decided to go out to accumulate experience in the outside world. For these reasons, Li Xuanqi kept the Heaven Palace Sect in his mind constantly and bore them no ill will even when he became a powerful cultivator later. He named the sect he established as the Heaven Palace Academy with a similar name as the Heaven Palace Sect as a way of honoring them.
So Li Xuanqi was pleasantly surprised when Xu Que said he was Li Xuanqi’s Patriarch. Li Xuanqi had a feeling of warmth, but also some suspicion, in his heart. After all, Li Xuanqi’s knowledge of the Heaven Palace Sect stopped after he left there. He also knew a little about their history, but he had no way of knowing whether Xu Que’s identity was true or not. However, the two powerful souls that had come out from the ancestral grave who were beside Xu Que at this moment reassured Li Xuanqi.
“I greet you, my Patriarch! I am your apprentice Li Xuanqi!” After several seconds, Li Xuanqi made a bow to Xu Que. Seeing this, Buttface and Duan Jiude, who were outside the cave, were dumbfounded again. Mo Junchen twitched his lips slightly as he smiled wryly to himself, thinking, “Awesome, my Faction Leader! As I expected, his shamelessness…has reached the acme of perfection!”
Who was Li Xuanqi? He was the founder of the Heaven Palace Academy! Even Li Xuanqi had been fooled by Xu Que! Although the main reason he had been so easily fooled was the presence of Guan Chuchu and Xuanyuan Qishang, Xu Que still managed to fool Li Xuanqi by making full use of the existing conditions, which was really quite impressive! At this moment, Li Xuanqi had been totally convinced by Xu Que.
According to the rules of seniority, Li Xuanqi had to make a bow to Xu Que. However, according to their cultivation stages, he couldn’t worship Xu Que on bended knees. After all, Xu Que was just at the Half-Celestial Stage, which meant Xu Que even had to call Li Xuanqi senior according to the rules of the World of Cultivators. Out of his respect for the Heaven Palace Sect, Li Xuanqi still made a bow to Xu Que, which could prove his loyalty to the Heaven Palace Sect, although this sect had long gone!
Because of this, Xu Que started to look at Li Xuanqi with great respect. Xu Que said in a moderate tone, “That won’t be necessary! Since the Heaven Palace Sect has disappeared, let’s treat each other as peers from now on to avoid embarrassment!”
“As you wish!” Li Xuanqi replied calmly, as he let out a sigh of relief.
“Okay! Tell me how the Heaven Palace Sect was wiped out.” Xu Que asked Li Xuanqi, fixing his eyes on him.
Li Xuanqi answered, shaking his head with a wry smile, “Patriarch…eh…Doc…”
“My family name is Xu!” Xu Que said, looking up at Li Xuanqi.
“Mr. Xu, actually, I know almost nothing about the accident that happened to the Heaven Palace Sect. Everything happened so fast at that time. What I know was that all the apprentices died and all the building heads and Deans disappeared. But I am sure that it was not caused by any external factors. I would guess something happened inside the sect that caused this mishap!” Li Xuanqi answered seriously.
“Why do you say that?” Xu Que asked curiously as he thought to himself: “Something happened inside the sect? What kind of thing could cause the death of all the apprentices and the disappearance of all high-level management? How were those big shots, including Xuanyuan Wanrong, buried under the Celestial Burial Valley in the Four Great Continents, which were so far away from here?”
“When the accident in the Heaven Palace Sect happened, I went back to have a look. I didn’t find any traces of fighting. Also, my Master used to refine pills. I found his pill furnace was still burning. But I couldn’t find my Master. I guess he left in a hurry, and I found a sentence left by him beside the pill furnace: “How can I stand to leave in this way?”
“Oh?” Hearing this, Xu Que became lost in his thoughts, “How can I stand to leave in this way? This question is quite thought-provoking!”
“So, I could conclude that the Heaven Palace Sect was not ruined by outsiders. Also, the building heads and the Deans withdrew from the sect. Something unexpected must have happened in the sect!” Li Xuanqi said with great certainty. Xu Que nodded his head. No wonder the current Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy retorted quite confidently to Xu Que when he declared that the Heaven Palace Sect had been wiped out by him. It turned out the Heaven Palace Academy knew the Heaven Palace Sect was not wiped out by outsiders.
“Mr. Xu, I have a question. I don’t know whether it is proper for me to ask you!” Li Xuanqi said as he looked at Xu Que hesitantly at this time. Xu Que rolled his eyes and thought, “If you think it is improper, just don’t ask me! Apparently, you are still going to ask me!”
“What is it?”
“Actually, I ask this question out of curiosity. I have stayed in the ancestral grave for many years. But the ancestors of the Heaven Palace Sect have never appeared. Why did your parents wake up so suddenly?” Li Xuanqi asked since he was puzzled by this question.
“Because of love…oh, no, because of the love of family! I was very close to my parents when I was young. Especially my mother, who always liked to hug me in her arms. See, just like this!” Xu Que replied calmly, without missing a beat. Although it was so embarrassing being hugged like a small kid, he really had no choice! He was not able to move and had to enjoy the love from his mother-in-law like this!
“Now I know! Thanks!” Hearing this, Li Xuanqi was enlightened and nodded his head. Then he said, “I guess your parents have been dead for many years. But they still care about you. So they left an obsession here. When you showed up, they sensed your aura and woke up to protect you. How deep their love to you is! I really admire and even envy you!” Admiration appeared in Li Xuanqi’s face. He admired this deep family love and envied Xu Que that Xu Que’s parents were so powerful! Even though they only had a strand of remnant soul left, their souls, which were full of obsession, were still horribly powerful.
Hearing his words, Xu Que was not happy at all and even tried to jump down to beat him up! All he could think was, “Envy me? Bullsh*t! You try to be hugged like this where you are not able to move! Then you will know how embarrassing it is! Luckily, I am strong! Otherwise, I would have committed suicide because of the shame and anger! Wait…” Suddenly, Xu Que was stunned as an idea occurred to him. Then his eyes lit up mischievously!
