Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
All the members of the Heaven Palace Academy who had entered the ancestral grave were puzzled and doing their best to figure out the meaning of what Li Xuanqi had said. Li Qingshan, the Deputy Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy, couldn’t help but make eye contact with his son, Li Wenqu. They discovered that each looked as puzzled as the other, and they were thinking, as all their fellow academy members were also, “The body of the second-generation Dean was smashed! His soul was almost destroyed. Now his soul is under repair in the recovery Array! His soul would need several hundred years, or perhaps 1,000 years, to make a full recovery!”
They were completely flummoxed about what this had done to their hidden plans! They had been planning this thing for so long. Now, it seemed as if they would have to abandon their plans. This was totally unacceptable for the father and his son. The bad news frustrated them so much!
“However, I made up my mind to show up at this time because I have an important issue to discuss!” Li Xuanqi spoke again. “The souls of the two ancestors of the Heaven Palace Sect have appeared because their child showed up. The ancestral grave was opened by the souls of these two ancestors. And as far as I can tell, their souls have lost intelligence. The only thing left in their souls is obsession! Anyone who dares to show killing intent in front of them will be attacked immediately. It is their instinct to protect their child!”
“The child of the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestors? How…could this be? How could the child of the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestors be still alive?” As the people who had entered the ancestral grave heard this, their eyes got wide. They didn’t believe what they had heard.
“I know you are puzzled. It was also quite difficult for me to believe that their child is still alive! However, it is a fact! The child sealed himself away and has just woken up recently. He is also an old man and his cultivation stage is just at the Half-Celestial. But it seems his strength is extraordinary! Unfortunately, I am not able to verify it!” Then Li Xuanqi fixed his eyes on his descendants and continued seriously, “However, you should listen carefully to what I am going to say! From now on, he will be the Deputy Dean of our Heaven Palace Academy. All of you must respect him without showing any indignities! Even though he is only at the Half-Celestial Stage, he is still senior enough to be our ancestor! Do you understand?”
SWISH! Instantly, all his descendants’ expressions changed, and they trembled and replied, “We will absolutely obey your instructions!” They all knew clearly that this Deputy Dean who had come out of the blue would have a significant impact on their lives. But it was impossible for them to say no to this decision because this Deputy Dean was the descendant of the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestors. He was even under the protection of the souls of the two ancestors right now. Even if this guy decided to act as the Dean of the Heaven Palace Academy, they were still powerless to resist him!
Li Qingshan and Li Wenqu made eye contact again, as they were rendered speechless, overcome with complicated emotions. At the same time, Li Xuanqi turned around and shouted, as he looked at a corner of the burial chamber, “Mr. Xu, I have made everything clear to them. You can come forth and meet them now!”
“Heh! Is this the way you make it clear? Why didn’t you ask them why do they hunt me down on the Heaven Continent?” Xu Que’s sneering response could be heard at this time. Everyone was surprised by his words, as they thought, “We are hunting down the child of the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestors? This is totally impossible!”
Li Xuanqi, who had almost forgotten about this issue, turned to Li Qinghe and asked seriously, “I’ve almost forgotten this issue. Why are you hunting down Mr. Xu?”
“Grandfather, I…” Li Qinghe was totally puzzled. However, he figured out the meaning of his Grandpa’s words the next moment. Everyone else also came to the same realization. Their eyes got as wide as saucers in disbelief. Recently, the Heaven Palace Academy had been hunting down someone indeed. And that person was Xu Que’s father! Now, the family name of this person who Li Xuanqi was treating with respect was also Xu. And his cultivation stage was also at the Half-Celestial! Then…
GASP! This sound was universal and so loud the walls trembled. Li Qingshan and Li Wenqu also trembled a bit as they made shocked eye contact. FLOP! Li Qinghe dropped on his knees and said as he looked at Li Xuanqi, “Grandfather, this is all a terrible misunderstanding! I didn’t know…Xu Que’s father was the descendant of the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestors! Also, he spread a rumor that…”
“Shut up!” Li Xuanqi shouted seriously as he stared at Li Qinghe, “No matter what Mr. Xu has done, you should never have hunted him down! This is very disrespectful to our ancestors and the Heaven Palace Sect!”
Li Qinghe was shocked. He kowtowed to Li Xuanqi and said, “Yes, Grandfather! I know I’ve made a serious mistake!”
Apparently, Li Xuanqi knew that Li Qinghe wouldn’t hunt down Xu Que for no reason. Xu Que must have done something outrageous to offend the Heaven Palace Academy. However, he couldn’t allow Li Qinghe to mention it in front of Xu Que. Otherwise, it could be very difficult for him to deal with the issue. So, Li Xuanqi interrupted Li Qinghe and put the blame on the Heaven Palace Academy. Only in this way could he avoid offending Xu Que and prevent the newly negotiated agreement from coming to nothing. Otherwise, the Heaven Palace Academy would lose the powerful assistance of the souls of the two ancestors of the Heaven Palace Sect.
As Li Qingshan’s younger brother, Li Qinghe was elected as the Dean because he was very smart. He figured out the intentions of Li Xuanqi right away. Then he admitted his mistake without any hesitation!
Li Xuanqi was quite satisfied with Li Qinghe’s reaction. “Mr. Xu, my unfilial grandson has admitted his mistake. As the old saying goes, no blame attaches to the unconscious doer of wrong. They didn’t know your identity before. This was just a misunderstanding! Could you forgive them, please?” Li Xuanqi looked toward Xu Que. He was also a little bit puzzled at this moment. Normally, this descendant of the ancestor wouldn’t need to be so pretentious. When he revealed his identity, the Heaven Palace Academy would never hunt down him again. Now, the Heaven Palace Academy had admitted its mistake. Why didn’t this descendant of the ancestor want to show up? “Mr. Xu, please come forth! The Heaven Palace Academy will rely on you for its future development!” Li Xuanqi continued.
“Humph!” The next moment, Xu Que’s snorted response came, “As the Deputy Dean, do I still need to meet them personally? Also, I still need to settle other scores with them. Li Xuanqi, just ask them what they have done.”
“What? Other scores?” Li Xuanqi was shocked. He frowned as he turned around to look at Li Qinghe and the rest of the members of the Heaven Palace Academy. thinking to himself, “How could this descendant of the Heaven Palace Sect’s ancestors have so many old scores to settle with the Heaven Palace Academy? This is really bad news for our plan to revive the Heaven Palace Sect!”
“So, what do you say now?” Li Xuanqi asked as he looked at his descendants seriously. Li Qinghe and the rest of the members of the Heaven Palace Academy were smiling with embarrassment. They knew clearly what Xu Que was talking about. This old man had said that Jiang Hongyan was his daughter-in-law. Now, the Heaven Palace Academy was plotting with the Sage Sect to arrange a marriage between Jiang Hongyan and the Sage Sect’s Divine Being of Taoist Fetus. It seemed like their conspiracy had been discovered, and this old man was about to settle scores with them.
“This is my fault! I proposed the marriage between the Body of Heavenly Kismet and the Divine Being of Taoist Fetus. I hoped they could give birth to a Divine Being of Heavenly Kismet. However, it is just a proposal and hasn’t been realized yet. Senior Xu, please forgive my mistake.” Li Qingshan walked out and made this statement as he clenched his teeth and fists. He had to admit it now because he was the one who had first proposed it. Also, it was related to the secret plan of the second-generation Dean, his son, and himself. He had to admit it now. Otherwise, if the secret plan were ever revealed, he would have to face horrible consequences.
