In the distance, many people were coming over this way. After the end of the battle for the Empty Realm, naturally they no longer had any worries or concerns.
Seeing the situation in the battlefield, many were stunned. Emperor Xia’s Realm was least favored, but was able to capture victory in this battle for the Empty Realm.
The person who was instrumental in the victory of this battle was someone no one had heard of before, Ye Futian.
Of course, he was someone of the Sage Plane, and from Emperor Xia’s Realm, so it was quite normal that he was an unknown, it was just that they did not know whose disciple he was.
The cultivators of the Demon Peacock Realm had also arrived, Kong Zhan and Kong Xuan were also present, they looked somewhat cold and unfeeling.
Emperor Xia’s Realm could win was because of the strategy that had been used on them. Although Emperor Li’s Realm suffered the most, but the Demon Peacock Realm did not fare much better; they had been used by Ye Futian and it was still difficult to accept.
The cultivators of the three great realms now gathered amongst themselves, and the Sacred Generals of Tian and Dou both came to Xia Qingyuan’s side and asked, “How is the princess’ injury?”
They clearly saw that Xia Qingyuan was wounded.
“No matter, since the battle of the Empty Realm was won by Emperor Xia’s Realm, get ready to take over the Empty Realm.” Xia Qingyuan said. In the next ten years, the resources of the Empty Realm would be taken over by them; anyone enter into the Empty Realm would need to pay the spiritual resources to Emperor Xia’s Realm.
“Yes,” the Sacred General of Tian nodded. “After the takeover, the princess could then hand out the rewards. ”
After he finished speaking, he looked at a cultivator of the Saint Plane from Emperor Li’s Realm and said, “ready to turn over the control.”
The war of the Empty Realm was the agreement reached by all three parties. The three imperial realms had to agree to the outcome, because if they refused, then there could only be war of the imperial realms.
Before there was not enough preparation, it was obvious that none of the three parties was willing to risk an all-out war of the imperial realms, there was too much at stake.
“Wait.” A voice of indifference was heard, and the eyes of the people turned to see that Kong Xuan was staring at Ye Futian.
She didn’t say anything, but Ye Futian understood what she meant nonetheless.
With his gaze refocused, Ye Futian conveyed his thoughts to the demonic beasts that he controlled, and suddenly they all came forward, including Jialou Feng, Bull Demon and some other royal elites of the demonic realm.
Seeing that so many demonic beasts were being controlled, Kong Xuan’s face was quite steely. Not just her, but all the characters of the Saint Plane within the Demon Peacock Realm looked at Ye Futian with extreme unfriendliness.
Ye Futian looked at the many demons, his eyes were enchanted, and the spiritual will infiltrated into their minds, erasing all the marks he had planted before, and the spiritual will power ceased to control the will of these demonic beasts.
The bodies of the demonic beasts, such as Jialou Feng, trembled. It was then that they seemed to realize what had happened to them before. A violent thought of murder exploded from Jialou Feng, and he madly rushed toward Ye Futian. Not only him, but many other demonic beasts also did the same.
“You don’t think this is shameful enough?” Kong Xuan scolded them. She stared at Ye Futian, “are there any other that you have controlled to lurk around us?”
“I have heard that all the previous battles for the Empty Realm were full of trickeries and intrigues, and nothing was not permissible. I possessed the kind of ability that could be used to capture the battle for the Empty Realm, it was understandable that I would use it. If I had offended the princess, I ask for your indulgence in the matter. “Ye Futian looked at her and continued, “as for other demonic beasts, Princess Kong Xuan may feel free to ask others of the Demonic Saint-level to investigate. Judging from the Demonic Saint Plane, it should be no trouble to detect.”
Kong Xuan stared at Ye Futian and said coldly, “I hope we do not meet again.”
“The leader of a defeated army, what gives you the right to be proud,” a cold voice came out, and Kong Xuan turned her attention to look at the speaker, and saw a pair of equally stunning eyes.
The person who spoke was none other than her equal, princess, Xia Qingyuan of Emperor Xia’s Realm.
The two crossed their gazes in the air, with the same coldness, there seemed to be an invisible current flowing. Seeing this exchange, many were faintly excited because the most unfortunate thing in this battle was that the two beautiful princesses did not engage in direct confrontation.
Otherwise, it would definitely have been the most beautiful scenery.
“Go.” Kong Xuan did not say anything further after all, just turned and left. Xia Qingyuan wasn’t wrong, she iswasindeed the leader of a defeated army.
Even if it was lost in Ye Futian’s unusual strategy, but defeat was defeat, there was no excuses.
What’s more, in that battle with Ye Futian alone, she had also lost to him.
After returning, she shall cultivate harder, evoking the Divine Path, and wash away the shame of the battle for the Empty Realm.
The cultivators of the Demon Peacock Realm quickly disappeared and left the battlefield.
“We will order the evacuation of our people, you can takeover yourselves,” From the camp of Emperor Li’s Realm, there was someone who responded coldly, and they left by levitation.
The Sacred General of Tian looked at the other and nodded in agreement.
After that, he looked at Xia Qingyuan and asked, “would the princess also wish to come along?”
“Well, let’s take a look see,” Xia Qingyuan nodded, and suddenly the army of Emperor Xia’s Realm gathered together, and then left the city in a mighty force.
After the people of Emperor Xia’s Realm had left, the cultivators from Emperor Li’s Realm looked at Li Yao and said, “Sire, shall we return to the palace?”
“Send messenger back to report the news of the battle for the Empty Realm. I still have unfinished business here. As to the imperial advisor, I will go back and ask for forgiveness,” he replied. There were countless cultivators who perished in this battle, but even as top geniuses who died in the battlefield, as the Prince of Dali, there was nothing for him to explain.
However, Yuan Jin was a great disciple of the imperial advisor of Dali, his own master. Even though the imperial advisor would not blame him, he still had the obligation to ask for forgiveness.
After all, he was the leader of the battle.
But before that, he still had something he wanted to do.
The news of this war soon spread in the Empty Realm, and many were quite surprised by the victory of Emperor Xia’s Realm, and there were many cultivators who inquired about Ye Futian.
This figure who came from nowhere, defeated Kong Xuan, and together with Xia Qingyuan, joined forces and slain Yuan Jin, the disciple of the imperial advisor of Dali; gained control the demonic beasts, and played Emperor Li’s Realm and Demon Peacock Realm one against the other; he captured the imperial flag and yet did not slay it so he could destroy most of the elites from Emperor Li’s Realm, and Yuan Jin had died fighting.
Such a brilliant record help to quickly spread the name of Ye Futian all over the Empty Realm. In the future, this could be the character who could sway Emperor Xia’s Realm.
Xia Qingyuan came to the land of a deserted canyon in the Empty Realm.
At this time, the group had travel by air, and there were people continuously broke off and left from the sky below; they were all cultivators from Emperor Li’s Realm who began retreating from this point.
Ye Futian looked down at below, and heard continuous sounds of explosions, the mountain ridge bursted, and a strong and dominant matrix below was being destroyed. It was the matrix set up by the cultivators of Emperor Li’s Realm, and they were destroying it now.
“What are they doing?” Ye Futian asked curiously, and he felt that the space rules between the heavens and the earth at this place was so thick that he could even felt traces of the Great Path.
As they continued forward, he was shocked to discover that the mountains were of a golden color, nursing a terrible sense of space within, just like a sacred mountain in the space.
“Did you feel the atmosphere here?” asked Xia Qingyuan.
“Yes,” Ye Futian nodded.
“The rumor has it that the Empty Realm was a complete piece of the Heaven Path that fell from the universe after the collapse of the Heaven Path, thus forming the Empty Realm. Therefore, the endless area of the Empty Realm has a strong atmosphere of space. If you look down from the firmament, you will see that the entire Empty Realm is surrounded by the Great Path of Space, so cultivators who are specializing in the power of space attributes will come here to cultivate.”
Xia Qingyuan explained further to Ye Futian, “Here seems to be the center of the Empty Realm. The layout of the Great Path Matrix was to absorb the intention of the Great Path in the Empty Realm, thus condensed into the Great Path fragments, that is, the sacred spirit stones. But in the next ten years we are in control of the Empty Realm, so that was why Emperor Li’s Realm destroyed the matrix.”
“Not only that, there are some places in the Empty Realm that are similar to this place, but this is the core area of the Empty Realm. Look at the mountains below, they have all turned into a sacred mountains of space. Cultivating in place like this, you will get twice the result with half the effort.” The Sacred General Tian who were in front also piped up. His palms grabbed toward below the sky, and a powerful suction suddenly came from the palms of his hand, and a radiant glow came toward his palm.
The next moment, a crystal appeared in the palm of the hand of the Sacred General of Tian, which seemed to be formless and intangible.
“Princess,” the Sacred General of Tian handed it to Xia Qingyuan, and she took it in her hand. There was a flow of air current in her hand, which was absorbed into her body, and suddenly the light of space covered the body of Xia Qingyuan. She stepped forward and was able to directly crossed the void.
“The Great Path fragments can be used for enlightenment. If you are already at the Saint level, you can also use it to battle directly, or for use to refine magic weaponry or divine implements.” Xia Qingyuan, who was in front, turned back and explained to Ye Futian, “so every ten years, the battle for the Empty Realm was always very intense.”
“Princess, I will lead people to set up now,” the Sacred General of Tian said to Xia Qingyuan, and then immediate left. They still have much to do, taking over the resources of the Empty Realm, controlling the entrance of the Empty Realm.
“For the cultivation of the people of the Upper Worlds, they were blessed,” Douzhan said with a sigh.
“It is said that in ancient times, before the collapse of the Heaven Path, the sense of the Great Path was everywhere, and it was the most prosperous times for the cultivators. After the Heaven Path collapsed, the difficulty of cultivation multiplied and evolved to today, in the so-called Lower Worlds, the Great Path no longer existed, even in the Upper Worlds, resources were scarce, and competition for them happened often, only some legendary places was said to have still preserved partial Heaven Path,” Xia Qingyuan explained. Douzhan and the others nodded; the people of the Nine States, after cultivating at the peak, needed to rely on the power of the Sacred War for enlightenment, the level of difficulty was extreme.
Xia Qingyuan faced all people and announced, “for everyone who participated in the battle of the Empty Realm, you may cultivate in the Empty Realm, and all the Great Path fragments collected in the coming year will be distributed equally among all the people who had participated in the war.”
“Many thanks to the princess,” everyone bowed to convey their gratitude. One year in the Empty Realm could produce a large sum of Great Path fragments. The princess indeed did not mistreat them, but it was a pity for those who died in battle.
“Ye Futian, in the battle for the Empty Realm, you were indispensable, what kind of reward do you wish?” Xia Qingyuan asked Ye Futian, “you may ask for anything.”
“It’s enough to be the same as everyone else,” Ye Futian replied very calmly, and many showed a look of total surprise, but then they admired Ye Futian even more.
Considering the future of Ye Futian, it was true that there was no need for him to fight for the gain at the moment.
“You laid down the trap and slay the imperial flag of the Demon Peacock Realm, and led the people of the Nine States to capture the flag of Emperor Li’s Realm. I will ask Divine Cloud Valley to forge a divine implement suitable for those who fought from the Nine States. As for you, I will ask my father, the Emepror, to bestow on you a place of cultivation in the Upper Worlds or to renovate the place where you cultivate right now. In addition, you will have the privilege to enter and leave the palace at will,. When the matrix had been arranged, all the Great Path fragments that were unearthed in the next seven days would belong to you. ”
All the cultivators who participated in the battle would share equally one year’s worth of the Great Path, but Ye Futian alone, would receive seven days’ worth of the Great Path fragments unearthed in the entire Empty Realm. This would be an unimaginable number.
However, no one disagreed. He had helped Emperor Xia’s Realm to gain the control of the Empty Realm for the next ten years, and was only rewarded seven days, this was how it should be.
