“Brother, I must go now.” Wu Qi solemnly said.
Ye Yunzhou gave him a tight hug in response: “Go, after you are done learning, we’ll journey to see the world together.”
“Yes!” Wu Qi resoundingly agreed with a loud laughter, true to his honest temperament. Wu Qi turned away in order to leave, but he immediately turned back and slipped a few silver coins and a jade medallion to Yunzhou: “Travel expenses for your trip.”
“No, no, I can’t take this-” Yunzhou was startled. The coins were one thing but this medallion was a token of good luck that Wu Qi kept with him since youth. It was very important to him.
Yunzhou quickly put the coins and medallion back to Wu Qi’s hand but Wu Qi immediately grabbed his hand and glared his eyes: “You and me, we don’t need to be like this. Keep it as a memento, but if you feel bad, give me something back too.”
“Hmm-” Yunzhou scratched his head and helplessly said: “I can’t be any poorer, there’s nothing valuable here so what can I give you as a momento?”
Yunzhou couldn’t come up with something suitable to give Wu Qi. He only had three to five pieces of clothings that were presentable. Other items were completely worthless.

Wu Qi’s exaggeration left Yunzhou feeling warm with his eyes becoming moist. He held Wu Qi’s wrists tightly and said: “When you look at this tile later, it is the same as seeing me!” [1. This common Chinese expression can be weird if translated literally like this, but I think the point comes across just fine. A modification could have been “Think of me when you look at this tile”.]
“Of course.” Wu Qi smiled and gave Li Qiye a hug: “Goodbye, brother.” With that, he left with his master. [2. Haha, this isn’t a mistake by me. The author typed Li Qiye instead of Ye Yunzhou in this sentence]
Yunzhou waved goodbye towards that direction and didn’t look away until they have disappeared completely. He stood there in a daze for a while.
When you look at this tile later, it is the same as seeing me - this was spoken from his heart earlier. Such simple words carried an incredible prestige later on. When he swept through the nine heavens and ten earth to become the master of the nine worlds, seeing this tile piece was the same as seeing an Immortal Emperor! It contained a boundless imperial aura!
After a long time, he calmed down and looked at the badge given to him by Unwavering. He then glanced at
