It was a tiny mound, completely inconspicuous in the sea of towering mountains. But if one were to be attentive enough, they would definitely take note of it for a very simple reason. The mud in the wildland is all black from dried blood. As for this mound, the mud around it was of an ordinary black color. The two shades were similar but the difference was indeed there.
It meant that this place had never been stained with blood!
Li Qiye climbed up on it and stood before a large boulder of a gray color, only as tall as a man. It was also common enough and shouldnt draw any special attention.
He placed both hands on it and slowly closed his eyes as if sleeping. After a long time, tiny symbols emerged on it and flowed into his hands like spirit snakes before disappearing altogether.
“Buzz.” Waves of fluctuation appeared on the boulder and he disappeared in the blink of an eye.
In the next moment, he was standing in the hallway of an ancient palace. He took a deep breath and basked in the aura of this place.
“Saint, Im here to see you.” Li Qiye said.
“Boom!” In this split second, a decrepit hand came out of nowhere and grabbed him by the neck, pushing him into the wall.
Li Qiye was unperturbed at the sudden development and said flatly: “Old man, this wont scare me. If I was an outsider, I wouldnt have come so politely.”
With the end of his sentence, the hand suddenly disappeared back to its unknown location.
Li Qiye chuckled and tidied his robe before walking down the hallway. At the end was a massive main hall propped up by many stone pillars. It was unadorned without unnecessary decorations, not even paintings on the walls.
There was no throne in the middle either, only a circular seat made out of hemp. An old man sat on it without moving at all as if this has been the case for millions and millions of years.
He wore a robe that was once gray. Now it was white from the beating of time. Nevertheless, it was still clean without a speck of dust.
His hair was also gray, draping down on his shoulders. They were dried and seemed to be dead completely.
There were two wings growing to the back of his ribs. However, they were withered as well. The feathers were gray without any radiance. They drooped down, unable to lift themselves up.
He sat there with his eyes closed. Someone would even mistake him for being dead for countless years now.
Li Qiye smiled and took out another hemp seat to sit down in front of him.
“Your places holy aura is quite weak now.” Li Qiye looked around and commented after sitting down.
The old being finally opened his eyes. Strands of light spewed out like the birth of three thousand new worlds. However, these strands quickly disappeared, revealing his aged eyes. They were muddled, no longer able to see the world clearly.
“Are you not afraid of me changing?” His feeble voice sounded like he was on the verge of death.
“Change? How?” Li Qiye chuckled in response: “Your dao heart has been polished for more than half of an epoch. You persevered in the cruelest years and didnt change during the destruction of your epoch. Whats the point of changing now? Its no longer your world.”
“Thats true.” The old man murmured and finally took a good look at Li Qiye: “I see. Not only do you have your real body in this generation, but you also have several heavenly scriptures.”
“Only external items for support, my dao heart is the thing that shall eternalize me.” Li Qiye smiled.
“Unfortunately, how many wise sages can be like you and not forget their original intention? As more time passed, it becomes easier to forget oneself, or how one used to look like during youth.” The old man softly said.
“But you havent forgotten, not even death could take that from you, the never-giving-up Saint.” Li Qiye said.
