Chapter 14: Everyone Hates You, Everyone Wants to Be You
“I could indeed proceed to break through to the Infinite realm now!”
Ling Ye followed up though, “However, the Infinite realm achieved by Ye Tian gathering the powers of the myriad realms, will indeed… Be a hair stronger than me!”
This was already set as the ending. It’s something absolutely unchangeable now!
This final battle. The duel between the final boss and the protagonist.
Both have used all their might, but… In the end, the villain will be just a little bit lesser!
Just that little different meant that the protagonist will definitely win!
The final villain will die!
The protagonist will be heavily injured!
This was already set!
“Then… Are we really going to lose?”
A hint of tears appeared in Zhuge Qingchan’s eyes.
“After I die, the universe will certainly descend into chaos! And you believe… That Ye Tian will be unable to suppress said chaos?” Ling Ye followed up and asked.
“Yes! Of course he won’t be able!” Zhuge Qingchan nodded.
This was only natural. She had considered this matter considerably for some time.
“Speak your thoughs then!” Ling Ye spoke calmly.
“Within the myriad realms! Everyone fears you and respects that Ye Tian!”
Zhuge Qingchan continued, “But… The fear everyone has of you is genuine! Their respect for Ye Tian, on the other hand, is not!”
“If he failed to reach the Infinite realm, then no one would truly take him seriously! His Heaven and Earth Alliance would at most be another top ranked faction!”
“What the people respects is merely the realm, not he himself!”
“However, the fear others have of you is something carved deep in their bones! It can never be erased!”
“Thus… The moment you die, the myriad realms will definitely descend into chaos!”
“Because that terror what had weighed down upon their hearts will have disappeared!”
“If Ye Tian had the might of the Infinite realm, then perhaps he could indeed suppress the chaos!”
“But if he lacked that power, then… He would simply be but another piece on the board that is the chaos!”
Zhuge Qingchan spoke out all the thoughts she had.
To put up a comparison, Ye Tian is in the light. Easy to see!
He gave off as much light as he had!
But Ling Ye was different!
Within the eyes of the world at large, Ling Ye is hidden in the dark. A dark so deep that it’s inestimable!
If Ye Tian’s light dropped, then to the world, he’d no longer be someone to take notice of.
But Ling Ye was different. No matter how he was, everyone will always fear him!
Perhaps… This was why so many people wanted to destroy Ling Ye.
Because everyone would want to remove an ever present fear in their hearts!
A fear of Ling Ye!
“I’ve once swept through the universe, butchered millions of opponents! Why do you still stand on my side then? Do you not consider me evil?” Ling Ye asked following.
“If you did not bring peace to the myriad realms, then the countless years of war and slaughter would have cause far more deaths than mere millions. Plus, most of those victims would have been innocent lives! My Spirit Tribe included!”
Zhuge Qingchan replied, “Besides! The opponents you slayed were merely the result of fair matches of power!”
“The winner is king, and the loser rebels. The victor lives, and the defeated dies. What’s good or evil about that?”
“Everyone hates you! Everyone wants to be you!”
“Good or evil? Those are merely self-proclaimed titles and justifications worn by those who want to replace you!”
In response to those words, Ling Ye showed a faint smile, “You’ve thought things through quite clearly for one so young!”
Zhuge Qingchan pursed her lips. Ling Ye’s praise for her did make her… A bit happy!
Every since she was little, she had been excluded and bullied!
She lacked power or strong backers!
Thus, ever since she was little, she preferred being alone and reading what she could find off the bookshelves!
Knowledge! That was her only companion since childhood!
Therefore, she did indeed have a better temperament and mind than most others.
“Therefore, my lord, you must not die! Only you can suppress the chaos from overtaking the universe!”
Zhuge Qingchan followed up, “Many factions, various mighty people, they all await this battle. All of them are watching from the shadows! They’re specifically waiting for you to die, so that they may rise in the vacuum left over!”
“I will definitely die!” Ling Ye stated calmly, “In this final battle, Ye Tian is undefeatable!”
“But…” Zhuge Qingchan frowned.
Are chaotic wars unavoidable then?
She always had the feeling that Ye Tian just didn’t have what it took to be the ruler of the myriad realms!
Even if he had the power of the Infinite realm, he still might not be able to truly control the myriad realms!
The myriad realms under the leadership of Ling Ye would definitely only be more chaotic.
Ye Tian did not have the abilities of a king!
All he had was a cultivation realm!
But the myriad realms, with its enormous space, really isn’t something that can be ruled just by depending on a cultivation realm!
Zhuge Qingchan was a bit depressed.
If Ling Ye was definitely going to die, then what’s the point of working so hard now?
Isn’t it completely pointless no matter what they did?
However, right afterwards, she realized it.
Ling Ye had just mentioned the matter of rebirth a moment ago!
Could it be that Ling Ye was thinking…
“My lord! Are you thinking about going through with the final battle, and then… Rebirthing?”
Zhuge Qingchan looked at Ling Ye with a shocked expression.
Ling Ye showed a faint smile. She’s no dummy after all!
“But… But how could Ye Tian allow you to be reborn? He’d definitely annihilate you to your very soul!” Zhuge Qingchan frowned again.
Rebirth at least required a fragment of remnant soul though!
How could Ye Tian possibly allow Ling Ye to leave behind his soul remnant?
Zhuge Qingchan suddenly thought of what Ling Ye just said about not considering logic!
So then, it’s not soul rebirth, nor is it reincarnation rebirth!
Could it be… That there’s a third method for rebirth?
Is it a method from combining the two rebirth methods?
So then, is that the reason why Ling Ye was having her think of a method?
