Chapter 1323: Has the Progenitor Appeared?
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
RUMBLE! Outside the ancestral grave, an ancient giant stone was rising up slowly. Soon the entrance of the ancestral grave was revealed. Li Qinghe, who was followed by the rest of the people of the Heaven Palace Academy, stepped into the grave first. This was not the first time that they had entered the ancestral grave. However, all of them would still feel anxiety and shiver all over whenever they came into this place. They were full of reverence because this was where all the powerful big shots of the Heaven Palace Sect were buried. They didn’t dare to make a racket here for fear that they might startle the big shots, who could still put horrible pressure on them now.
However, all of them were suffocated by a horrible pressure as soon as they stepped into the ancestral grave. Inside this pitch-black ancestral grave, the deeper they went in, the stronger the pressure they were feeling. It was totally different than the feelings they had gotten during any trips they had made to this place before.
“This…” Someone opened his mouth and was about to say something. Then this person realized that all the people in this place were looking at each other with puzzlement and terror. Li Qinghe, who was the current Dean, was also looking around seriously. At last, all of them fixed their eyes in one direction. It was a passage leading to the main Burial Chamber! Of course, it was the main Burial Chamber of the Heaven Palace Academy because the Deans of the first two generations were buried there. Actually, it was the most remote chamber in this ancestral grave, which was far away from the central area.
When Li Xuanqi made up his mind to bury his body here, he exhorted his descendants again and again that the ancestors of the Heaven Palace Sect should never be startled or offended. He had offended those ancestors when he had decided to bury himself in the ancestral grave without permission. How dare he choose a burial chamber in the central area of the ancestral grave? His descendants obeyed his instructions strictly. They never explored the rest of the area when they came into the ancestral grave. They always went to the Burial Chamber of Li Xuanqi and the second-generation Dean directly. As time passed, they just called this burial chamber the main Burial Chamber. But now they sensed a suffocating pressure from that direction, which shocked all of them.
“Does it mean…the Progenitor has recovered and woken up?” Someone asked excitedly. If Li Xuanqi could recover and wake up at this time, the Heaven Palace Academy would be unstoppable on the Heaven Continent. After all, no sects on the Heaven Continent had Celestial Kings.
“No, this aura…is far more powerful than the aura of a Celestial King!” A building head said, shaking his head. However, the next moment, that powerful and suffocating aura disappeared as suddenly as if it had never appeared. The spacious ancestral grave became as solemn and serene as before. The people in this area stared at each other in puzzlement.
“Why are you still standing outside the chamber?” A calm but majestic voice could be heard at this time.
“Yes, sir!” All of them replied as they bowed down slightly and walked forward together. This voice was from their Progenitor Li Xuanqi and was so familiar and unforgettable for all of them. However, that aura that had appeared and disappeared suddenly still puzzled them. They knew this aura was definitely not from the two Deans. Who was the owner of this mysterious and horrible aura? In this ancestral grave, besides Li Xuanqi and the second-generation Dean, there were only…the dead powerhouses and big shots of the Heaven Palace Sect!
At the thought of this, all of them were shocked. But they didn’t dare to stop and talk about it. So they had to keep silent and move forward reverently. Soon, they stepped into a spacious burial chamber after walking through the passage. To their surprise, the burial chamber was not as dark as before. They even saw light coming from a corner at the rear part of the chamber. Their expressions changed abruptly because they knew the seriousness of what they saw. The burial chamber had been excavated!
FLOP! Immediately, all of them dropped onto their knees. Li Qinghe shouted directly, “Progenitor, please forgive your unfilial descendants! We failed to take precautionary measures to prevent the grave robbers from disturbing you!”
“Just rise! It has nothing to do with you!” A calm voice could be heard. Along with a gust of chilly wind, an old man with white hair and a ruddy complexion walked out. The dim light landed on his face. This weird scene made the rest of the people in this place feel dazed.
It was the Progenitor, Li Xuanqi! How could he come out now? All of them were shocked. During the previous worship ceremonies, Li Xuanqi and the second-generation Dean were lying in their coffins. Although their descendants could communicate with them, their bodies had never moved. This time, the descendants didn’t expect Li Xuanqi would walk out from his coffin and be so close to them at this moment!
Li Qingshan and Li Qinghe trembled a bit as their eyes teared up. As Li Xuanqi’s grandsons, they knew this old man very well. Many years ago, this old man used to hug them in his arms and play with them when they were still young. When the old man passed away, none of them had finished their Foundation Building Stage yet! After so many years, the reappearance of this old man brought up so many memories!
“Grandfather!” Li Qinghe and Li Qingshan shouted at the same time to greet their grandfather who had passed away so many years ago. Li Xuanqi also exclaimed and nodded his head as he looked at his two grandsons with a kind smile, “Both of you have grown up!”
Li Qingshan and Li Qinghe didn’t know what to say as they looked at Li Xuanqi. After all, they were no longer small kids. What was left in their memories of this old man were only some scenes from their childhood. All the rest of the impressions about this old man were the voice communications with him during the worship ceremonies that were held every five years! After so many years, the only feeling about this old man in their heart was reverence!
“Just refine the Spiritual Celestial Stones and maintain the Array as you have done before. Then I have something to tell you!” Without wasting his time, Li Xuanqi gave his instructions directly.
“As you wish!” These people replied and started to work immediately. They took out the Spiritual Celestial Stones they had prepared and started to refine them. Li Qinghe and Li Qingshan started to maintain the recovery Array.
Li Xuanqi said again at this time, “I know you have sensed an aura just now. It is from an ancestor of the Heaven Palace Sect. His soul has shown up together with the soul of his wife. Their cultivation stages have at least reached the summit of the Celestial Prime and are not far away from the Celestial Emperor!”
What? His words shocked everyone in the place whose eyes got wide at the same time as they were refining the Spiritual Celestial Stones or maintaining the Array at this moment. All these people were so surprised to hear those words. The Celestial Primes? Are their cultivation stages very close to the Celestial Emperor? How…could this be? If they could come out of the grave, nobody on the Heaven Continent could rival such powerful cultivators as them!
“Qingshan, Qinghe, I guess your father found them first. Unfortunately, I hadn’t woken up at that time. Your father offended them. Then one of the two ancestors smashed your father’s body with one palm attack. Luckily, your father’s soul hasn’t been wiped out. I have put his soul into the recovery Array. So don’t try to offend those two souls when you see them later. Otherwise…even I am not able to protect you!” Li Xuanqi continued.
Everyone in this place was completely dumbfounded. Li Xuanqi’s words totally puzzled them. The souls of the two ancestors of the Heaven Palace Sect, who had shown up just now, almost killed the second-generation Dean with just one palm attack! How could the souls of those two ancestors be so horribly powerful?
