Imperial God Emperor Chapter 1116
Chapter 1116 - Please Treasure Yourself
Immediately, the golden-armored soldiers' eyes looked as though they were trying to resist this force, then their eyes turned blank as the silver light completely assimilated into their bodies.
Moments later, their eyes cleared as their lucidity returned.
"Greetings, my lord."
Hundreds of soldiers bowed in unison to Ye Qingyu.
When he sealed their memories he also planted new memories in their mind and the key principle behind those memories was that they were the Human Race headquarters' guards and will faithfully carry their orders.
"You may rise," Ye Qingyu said as he waved his hand. "In the future, you will have to obey Spokesperson Li's orders."
"Yes, my lord," the golden-armored experts turned to bow at Spokesperson Li and said in unison, "Greetings, my lord." They moved in perfect unison just like elite soldiers.
Their memories might have been sealed, but their techniques and battle strength did not deteriorate at all and thus, they were still incredibly strong. These men who numbered slightly more than a hundred were probably many hundred times stronger than the White-robed Divine Guards of the Human Race headquarters.
"You're dismissed," Spokesperson Li commanded.
Over one hundred golden-armored experts immediately left the hall.
Spokesperson Li, Lin Yutang, and the others looked at Ye Qingyu with the utmost respect. This technique of sealing others' memories and forcefully altering others' mind was a brilliant technique and it seemed like the abilities of fiendgods. They realized that Ye Qingyu was now truly invincible throughout the world - both his cultivation and remarkable abilities had already far surpassed his contemporaries, and the extent of his abilities are far beyond their imagination.
That was a brilliant technique!
"My lord, the status of the Human Race will rise significantly from today onwards," Spokesperson Li said excitedly.
If the Human Race had an invincible expert like Ye Qingyu watching over them, the strength of the golden-armored soldiers, as well as the support of the other Human Race forces throughout the Vast Thousand Domains, their race definitely had the potential of becoming the strongest race in another three to five years. If Ye Qingyu so desired, the Human Race could even unify the entire Vast Thousand Domains and re-establish the golden age of the ancient Emperors.
Lin Yutang and the others were also a little excited.
On the other hand, the Great Dragon Turtle Demon was a little worried in spite of his excitement—— he was not worried for himself, nor for his race because knowing how protective and sentimental Ye Qingyu was, he would not make things difficult for the Southern Waters Demon Race. Instead, he was worried that once the Human Race established an imperial dynasty that ruled over the entire Vast Thousand Domains, any other race apart from the Human Race would probably face oppression. The fact that Ye Qingyu wouldn't do this didn't mean that the other Human Race experts and ambitious leaders would also follow his example. After all, he was acting single-handedly and could not possibly oversee everything.
Ye Qingyu's gaze swept over them like a torch and immediately knew what they were thinking when he saw their expressions.
"I'll soon leave the Vast Thousand Domains, so I'll have to rely on Spokesperson Li and the rest of you to watch over the Human Race. I'll also be counting on all of you to raise the status of the Human Race," he said with a smile.
He was making it clear that he would not interfere in the matters of the Human Race headquarters any longer, neither did he have the desire to suppress the other races in a bid to become Emperor.
Spokesperson Li and the others could not help but feel a little disappointed.
Great Dragon Turtle Demon heaved a secret sigh of relief, then asked, "My lord, if you're going to leave the Vast Thousand Domains, where do you plan to go next? Could it be..."
Everyone's expression immediately changed at his words.
There had always only been one place that was not part of the Vast Thousand Domains and that was the Dark Realm. This was the only place throughout this world that was not part of the thousands of domains that made up the Vast Thousand Domains and it was a chaotic region. That was a truly deadly place and since the ancient times, many heroes and highly-skilled talents have perished there.
Ye Qingyu nodded and replied, "Yes, someone is waiting for me there."
He had long wanted to make his way there.
Then, he changed the subject and said, "Those golden-armored experts who numbered over a hundred will be a separate army of their own and they shall be called the Golden-armored Divine Guards and they shall rank only second to the White-robed Divine Guards. In the future, please take good care of them and try not to be too harsh on them. I believe that three hundred years later, they would make the correct decision even after their memories are restored... As for this person," he continued as he pointed to the elderly servant who was still pinned to the spot by his formation, "I'm taking him with me since I've got some questions for him."
"My lord, go ahead and take him if you must," Spokesperson Li swiftly answered.
Ye Qingyu nodded.
"Please try to keep the incident here today under wraps for now, and I'll also have to trouble the four leaders of the White-robed Divine Guards to investigate who are the forces and conglomerates plotting to attack Heaven Wasteland Domain. I want you to weed them all out and destroy them all."
He had no reason to show mercy because this was not the first time this has happened. He had already used several tactics to warn these forces off, but he hadn't expected them to refuse to turn from their wicked ways after warning them repeatedly, so it was time to punish these forces as a warning to the rest of the forces.
These forces, in particular, could not be spared since they had joined forces and even dared to think of harming Yu Xiaoxing, so their actions had stirred up his killing intent.
"Yes, my lord," Lin Yutang and the others accepted their orders.
They could clearly sense the killing intent behind his words, so he didn't need to give them explicit instructions for them to know what was expected of them.
The Human Race headquarters was now so powerful that they no longer need to be worried about the other forces. They would seize this opportunity to show the rest of the world how powerful they were and also strike fear into the rest of the forces who still harbored ill will toward the Human Race.
After he gave these instructions to Spokesperson Li and the others, his figure flashed and he disappeared from the main hall.
The elderly servant had also disappeared together with him.
A moment later, he re-appeared at Sunrise City.
This was the first city of the nineteen cities of chaos and he had also once obtained several opportunities from this place, but he was here today because he sensed that the elderly Quasi-emperor was in this city.
He travelled to the northern part of the city and arrived at a manor.
A wine goblet was suspected in the void and floated above the great hall, releasing a mysterious green light that sealed the entire hall.
It was an Emperor weapon.
Ye Chen must have used this weapon to trap the elderly Quasi-emperor in this place.
At his mental command, the power of laws surged and he removed the wine goblet from its place in the void.
The elderly servant stood behind him, a picture of despair but he did not dare to attempt to escape.
Ye Qingyu opened the door and entered the hall.
The entire hall was empty and it was not elaborately decorated at all.
An elderly man who wore a simple long robe sat quietly on a futon in the middle of the hall and Lu Wei knelt behind him, looking like he was overcome with grief but was helpless to do anything about it.
"You're here," the elderly man said.
It was the elderly Quasi-emperor.
"Yes," Ye Qingyu nodded. He sensed that the elderly Quasi-emperor was extremely frail and his strength had already fallen below that of Great Saint reallm. More importantly, his blood qi was almost completely exhausted and his life seemed like a tiny candle in the wind, its weak flame about to be extinguished at any moment.
The situation was worse than he had been expecting.
Theoretically, the elderly Quasi-emperor shouldn't have become so frail.
However, he soon noticed that there was also something odd about Lu Wei and there seemed to be a strange force within this body and it originated from a seed of energy that was gradually changing his aura. Ye Qingyu knew that the elderly Quasi-emperor must have used a mysterious technique to condense Quasi-emperor Knowledge into a seed and planted this seed into Lu Wei's body. This was the final present and legacy for his beloved grandson.
It was no wonder that the elderly Quasi-emperor had become so weak.
"I knew that you'd be able to resolve those matters," the elderly Quasi-emperor rose to his feet and turned around.
Ye Qingyu was stunned at his current appearance.
The elderly Quasi-emperor's face was now full of wrinkles that spread all over his face like the cracks of a parched riverbed, and his hair was extremely brittle and dry. He looked like a shadow of his former self where he always had white hair and a youthful complexion, and he would never regain his elegant presence.
Ye Qingyu felt saddened when he saw how much the elderly Quasi-emperor had aged.
This elderly man was worthy of respect and he had given his all for the sake of the Human Race and exhausted his vitality while doing so. He had also made his contributions from the shadows and did not care for profit nor fame. He was living in obscurity in Sunrise City even today and kept an extremely low profile. There was not a single soul in Sunrise City who knew that there was a Quasi-emperor in their midst and in the future, his name would probably be hardly mentioned in the annals of the Human Race for he had always given his all quietly and had never tried to make a name for himself.
"Good, I see you have finally reached the Quasi-emperor realm as well," the elderly Quasi-emperor said and his gaze was proud and admiring as he looked at Ye Qingyu. "I once questioned why the heavens were so harsh to the Human Race but now, I'll have to amend my statement. The heavens have been kind to the Human Race to have given us somebody as incredibly talented as yourself. There have been very few throughout history who have managed to become a Quasi-emperor at such a young age."
Despite the deterioration of the elderly Quasi-emperor's cultivation, he was still able to identify Ye Qingyu's true cultivation at first glance.
"I would like to leave you with this statement and I hope that you'll always remember it," the elderly Quasi-emperor said.
"Please share those words with me and I swear that I'll hold them close to my heart forever," Ye Qingyu said solemnly.
The elderly Quasi-emperor said sincerely, "Please treasure yourself."
Ye Qingyu was surprised for a brief moment, but soon understood what the elderly Quasi-emperor meant.
He also understood the sacrifices the elderly Quasi-emperor had made.
He nodded and said, "I will."
The elderly Quasi-emperor nodded with a smile then asked, "I guess you'll soon be heading to the Dark Realm, right?"
"Yes," Ye Qingyu nodded.
"Ha ha, it's about time," the elderly Quasi-emperor said with a smile, "There are many friends waiting for you there and the end is finally near. It is time to put an end to the eternal rounds of reincarnation," he paused for a moment and said, "You may go. I wish to live out my final days in this city. All the matters of this world will have nothing to do with me from now on, and I feel relieved to be able to thoroughly let go of this burden."
Ye Qingyu nodded and bowed respectfully at the elderly Quasi-emperor, then he slowly turned to leave the great hall.
He knew that once he left this place, he would no longer be able to meet this venerable elderly man.
"I don't want my name to appear in the annals in the future," the elderly Quasi-emperor added.
Ye Qingyu stopped in his tracks for a brief moment and wanted to persuade him otherwise, but he ultimately gave up on that thought and left the great hall.
The sky was very blue outside.
