Many people looked up at Ye Futian, who stood there with his back facing them; the atmosphere became a bit depressing.
The person he mentioned mustve been significant to him.
But why did he think she would cultivate in Brahmas Pure Sky?
Suddenly, Ye Futian laughed at himself with a tinge of bitterness. Perhaps that wisp of hope had just been an illusion he created.
Was it even possible for her to have survived the battle of the Ultimate Holy Palace?
If Xia Qingyuan hadnt told him this message, he wouldve lost all hope.
With that in his mind, he came all the way to the Heavenly Mandate Realm. However, now it seemed that it was nothing but his chimera.
Even if Jieyus soul had not dissipated, why would the exalted Lord of Brahmas Pure Sky in the Heavenly Mandate Realm have to help her?
To her, people in the Lower Realms were nothing but insignificant ants.
Ye Futian turned around and walked back. Xia Qingyuan looked at his face and followed him quietly.
Although she tried to comfort Ye Futian, she also thought Hua Jieyu had died upon hearing the answer from the Goddess of Brahmas Pure Sky. The hope that Ye Futian had built over several years had shattered; he mustve been devastated.
His heart was filled with only despair, without any room for happiness.
Yu Sheng, Ye Wuchen and others were all looking at Ye Futian. They knew best about the relationship between Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu. They were in each others company since they came from Qingzhou city until Hua Jieyu lost her life in the battle of Ultimate Holy Palace. Whatever hope they thought was there faded away; they all understood how Ye Futian felt at this moment.
Lets go, Ye Futian said softly with a low voice. Soon he walked away.
Everyone nodded and followed him without a word.
Only time could heal their wounds.
The crowd involuntarily gave way to them. By breaking the record of Wutu Divine Mountain Ye Futians extraordinary talent earned him the respect of the cultivators who came to attend the event today.
It was a pity that he missed the great opportunity to join the Purple Underworld Sect and even declined the invitation of Violet Heavenly Palace, perhaps due to his brother Gu Dongliu.
Even though Ye Futian had outstanding Thunder talent, he was now no longer able to deploy it. He said that the Thunder was not his forte, and people of the Violet Heavenly Palace claimed that they did not want to see him use Thunder Laws in the future. He inherited the Thunder Laws from them but was banned from using it.
Ye Futians future in Thunder skills mightve been ruined, and he might hardly have achieved anything within the district of Violet Heavenly Palace ever since he had offended those top forces.
People wouldnt have pitied Ye Futian if he was just mediocre. They pitied him because he broke the record and had the opportunity to enter top forces, but he missed his chance to do so.
He missed the chance to enter Violet Heavenly Palace because of his relationship with Gu Dongliu. Since everything about Gu Dongliu was left unknown, other top forces wouldnt have taken him as a disciple, either.
In this case, Ye Futian could only cultivate his rare talent on his own.
After Ye Futian left, the crowd also gradually dispersed.
On this day, the Wutu Divine Mountain was not the only place where Divine Thunder fell. Each of the Eight Divine Mountains in the Violet Heavenly Palace district of the Heavenly Mandate Realm all held such events. Many talented warriors performed excellently in the Eight Divine Mountains. Among them, there was another warrior aside from Ye Futian who broke the record of a divine mountain and became a Renhuangs disciple. Many opportunities laid ahead of him.
Compared to him, Ye Futian of the Wutu Divine Mountain looked even more pitiful.
However, Gu Tianxings appearance stole the spotlight of all the Thunder Law events of the Eight Divine Mountain. People in the Heavenly Mandate Realm talked more about Gu Dongliu and Gu Tianxing.
Was the person who showed up that day actually Gu Guxing?
Was he still alive, or was it just his remnant soul on earth?
Gu Tianxings appearance directly intimidated many Renhuang figures of the top forces in the Heavenly Mandate Realm; his peerless bearing was admired by countless people.
Many people hoped that he was not dead so they could have the opportunity to see what kind of person he was.
Gu Dongliu was also mentioned most frequently in peoples conversations. He was said to be the only descendant of Gu Clan and was sent to the Lower Realms for cultivation at an early age. Even his life spirit was sealed by an overwhelming force, suppressing his talent. He did not know of his own origin until he was captured by people of the Purple Underground Sect.
Now, there were several voices in the Heavenly Mandate Realm speculating that Gu Dongliu was Gu Tianxings grandson, the rare talent Gu Jiangnans son.
If so, many people wouldve felt uneasy, especially the two top forces, the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace. At the time, they mostly contributed to cleansing the Gu Clan.
The Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Gu Clan were especially deadly foes. At the time, they killed the Gu Jiangnan couple and forced the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven to kill Gu Tianxing, but the latter had killed the former emperor and the current emperors crown prince of the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty. The father and the most beloved son of the emperor of the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty both died in the hands of Gu Tianxing; nothing could break the deadlock unless more people died.
Soon, a message was released from the Heavenly Mandate Realm. On that day, Gu Tianxing showed up and took Gu Dongliu away. People of the Violet Heavenly Palace and the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty followed them and learned that Gu Tianxing and Gu Dongliu went to the zone in the west of the boundary stone of the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
The news caused another uproar.
In the west of the boundary stone of Heavenly Mandate Realm, the territory didnt belong to any of the five top powers.
Several years ago, wars kept erupting in the Heavenly Mandate Realm, especially between different races who had brutally killed each other.
Back then, corpses were everywhere on the battlefield during battles between the Demon Emperor of Demon Realms and Renhuang Emperor of the Heavenly Mandate Realm. Numerous corpses were left in the Heavenly Mandate Realm until the world was unified and Emperor Qing conferred the title of Lord of All Demons and worshipped by demons. From then on, the situation somehow improved enough for the human race and the demon race to coexist in the world.
Even so, the divergence between races was still ubiquitous.
The Heavenly Mandate Realm was also demarcated from other areas, of which the border was set by a boundary stone. The west of the boundary stone was the main force of the Demon Realm. Humans could also go there to cultivate, but royal members of the human race were not allowed inside, or the demons wouldnt have been responsible for their deaths or injuries.
Similarly, the other side was the territory of the human race.
Over the years, both sides had infiltrated each other to some degree, but each side would not interfere with the other sides ruling. Demon warriors were cultivating on the east side, while many human cultivators entered the western region. However, the Renhuang-level figures usually did not enter the other races area since it was risky.
This was especially true after Emperor Ye Qing passed away.
Renhuang-level warriors mustve been extremely cautious about the decision of entering the western zone because they mightve not been able to return.
Human cultivators called the land in the west of the boundary stone of Heavenly Mandate Realm a place of chaos; it was the barren land where a variety of demons, ghosts, monsters, and spiritual creatures existed.
Furthermore, it was the main battlefield of the chaotic war of that year. With countless ancient sites and mass graves, it was far more complicated than the human zone.
Because of this, even though there was more chaos there, countless cultivators still went there to cultivate and go through trials despite the growing chaos. The complex environment couldve made them more powerful.
Now, Gu Dongliu disappeared in the land to the west of Heavenly Mandate boundary stone, which made it hard to follow and kill the Renhuang figures of the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and Violet Heavenly Palace.
Once the news rang out, it was said that top powers began to send their disciples there to investigate Gu Tianxing and Gu Dongliu; the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty, the Violet Heavenly Palace, and the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven were especially concerned about this.
Both Gu Tianxings fate and Gu Donglius future wouldve greatly influenced the situation of the entire Heavenly Mandate Realm.
During the past conflict between the human race and the demon race, both sides conceded. Renhuang-level characters generally didnt lay a hand on lower-level warriors. Therefore, only cultivators whose levels were below Renhuang were to be deployed this time.
As the news spread, warriors of all forces in the Heavenly Mandate Realm began taking action. Several people began heading toward the land to the west of Heavenly Mandate boundary stone, the territory of the Demon Realm.
Ye Futian also heard the news. It seemed that the Third Brother had safely left, but the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace were still unwilling to let him go. If they had known where the Third Brother was, they might even have deployed their top figures.
During these days, he had also been collecting information about the demon territory of the Heavenly Mandate Realm. Although the human race and the demon race cultivated together, there was always hostility between them. The Demon Peacock Emperors Realm was a very special case in the Crimson Dragon Realm.
Now, they were somewhere far away from the Heavenly Mandate Realm: the Demon Peacock Emperors Realm.
In a majestic demon imperial palace, a peerless woman stood there. In front of her was a very sharp-looking demonic beast with black and golden feathers. Its eyes looked keen, and its body was heavily shrouded in a demonic aura.
My father told me that the demon zone in the Heavenly Mandate Realm is one of the gathering places for demons among the Three Thousand worlds of the Great Law. Compared to the Crimson Dragon Realm, top figures of the demon clan are more willing to go there when they are strong enough, said Kong Xuan, her eyes fixed on the demonic beast in front of her. Do you want to go to the Heavenly Mandate Realm?
I have cultivated here for many years. Now I really miss my master. Your Highness, could you please ask His Majesty a favor for me? It would be better if Your Highness can also go with me. My master must deeply miss you, too, the Black Wind Condor said, blinking hard. Kong Xuan looked at him without emotion. She didnt forget what that guy had done to her that year. She wished she couldve killed him in the Empty Realm.
However, she did want to go somewhere like the Heavenly Mandate Realm. What would it have been like to see so many demon clans gather?
Ye Futian went there with Chi Shang, the prince of the Crimson Dragon Realm. She neither cultivated in the Regional King Palace nor was listed in the Regional King Ranking list, so she was not invited to travel with them.
Now, she really wanted to go there and see.
Thinking of Ye Futian, she thought to herself, Would that guy leave her behind that far away?
If she had the opportunity to meet him again in the future, she didnt want to be mocked and disdained by him.
With this in mind, Kong Xuan said, Ill go ask my father.
I can tell that Your Highness missed my master as much as we do, said Black Wind Condor. His way of speaking was the same as before; he always needed someone to teach him a harsh lesson.
The life force started to flow around Kong Xuans body as she stared at the Black Wind Condor.
No, it is my master who needs Your Highness. He is in the land of the demon clan, after all, Black Wind Condor said, immediately changing his tone. Kong Xuan had been used to this jerks loose lips; she just ignored him and turned around, walking towards the palace hall.
Since she wanted to go somewhere as far as the Heavenly Mandate Realm, all she could do was ask her father for help!
