Many turned their eyes at Ye Futian, waiting for his answer.
That genius had beaten Zhan Yuan and gained the Celestial Soul Attraction method. Furthermore, he was already able to use it. He would not have been able to save Wang Yanbing otherwise.
At the moment, he was only a nod away from getting himself yet another mystical way method.
Such opportunities were indeed astonishing.
Ye Futian then turned towards the mighty ones of the Wang Clan and replied with a smile, Im indeed honored by your magnanimity of being willing to pass the method to outsiders, elder. However, Ive already trained in a mystical way. Speaking of attacks, I earned one from the Divine Elephants as well. I do not have too much need for offensive powers.
Many people were baffled by what he just said.
Every single method that was passed down by the ancestors of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven was extremely powerful. The Art of Yanbing would have absolutely been a major offensive art, and many would have killed for such an opportunity.
Ye Futian was only a nod away for being able to learn it, yet he refused.
This guy sure is confident, many thought.
But then again, he was right. There was indeed little need, and it was not necessarily a good thing to learn too many offensive methods. Ye Futian acquired the demon emperor bone of the Divine Elephant Emperor of the Ten Directions before and had learned two of the most powerful techniques of the Divine Elephants. Those attacks would not have been inferior to the Art of Yanbing. As such, adding that method to his arsenal would not have been able to boost his combat prowess.
However, just when everyone thought Ye Futian would have refused the offer completely, he was heard saying, However, I do have someone I could recommend to you, senior. He would definitely be a very suitable candidate for learning the Art of Yanbing.
Wha The crowd looked at Ye Futian with a speechless expression, finding it absurd that he intended to pass the offer down to others.
Who would that be? the clan leader of the Wang Clan asked.
A friend of mine by the name of Ye Wuchen. He gained the lineage of Sword Emperor of Hanzhou at Origin Mountains, Ye Futian continued. The clan leader was silent for a moment after hearing what Ye Futian said. The leader said, If he is someone who was acknowledged by the Sword Emperor of Hanzhou, Im naturally confident that he will be able to spread the mystical method. If that is the case, I shall pass the Art of Yanbing down to him.
Thank you, senior, Ye Futian said as he smiled and bowed. He turned to look at Ye Wuchen, who looked speechless.
He was baffled that Ye Futian had him train in the mystical ways instead.
Everyone felt speechless after seeing all that. While it was indeed true that Ye Futian was clever, he was nonetheless a man with a heart of gold. Any common man would have opted to pick up the method before anything else, and friends would have been the last thing they would have thought of.
Furthermore, there was no stopping him from teaching said friend after mastering the method himself.
However, Ye Futian opted not to do so, as he deemed it necessary to respect the wishes of the Wang Clan.
No one would have expected that event of extreme importance to Haotian City would have ended in such a manner. While it was indeed quite regretful, it was perfect in some other ways.
It would have been very regretful otherwise, be it to be in the case of Gu Dongliu losing, or Wang Yanbing dying.
If Gu Dongliu were to lose the fight, everything Gu Tianxing had done would have been for nothing, and what the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven had done would have been pointless as well.
At present, Gu Dongliu showcased his impressive capabilities for the very first time. Despite having lost, Wang Yanbings insistence of not returning home unless he succeeded had impressed many as well.
Despite having lost the fight, he remained able to stand proud, and there was no need for him to bow. No one would have blamed him for losing.
While the concept of honored though defeated had usually been little more than consolation to the loser, it truly was so in Wang Yanbings case on that day.
The mighty ones of the Wang Clan excused themselves and left. Ye Futian promised to pay them a visit with Ye Wuchen some other day. The Wang Clan had been willing to pass down their method to an outsider, after all, so he saw fit to go through with the necessary propriety.
Wang Yanbing was left behind, as he was about to be admitted to the Celestial Gate.
Ye Futian, the Sword Saint, and the others came to Gu Donglius side.
Big brother, Gu Dongliu called with a smile.
The Sword Saint flashed a smile as well. When Gu Dongliu was taken by the Purple Underground in the past, all of them felt helpless about their predicament. What happened since then seemed like a dream.
They never expected Gu Dongliu to have been a descendant of Gu Tianxing, a pinnacle figure who had been lauded to be one found in thousands of years in Heavenly Mandate Realm.
Mingyue would be very happy to know this, the Sword Saint smiled and said.
Indeed. If the second sister were to be able to see this, our third brothers status in the family would be considerably heightened, Ye Futian smiled and added.
1Gu Dongliu turned to look at Ye Futian and asked, Dont you think your third brother here is of quite a high status in the family already?
High, very high indeed, Ye Futian answered, trying to stifle his laughter.
While it was indeed true that his third brother had become a legendary figure, if there was one person that he definitely was unable to beat, it would have been his second sister.
His second sister was a woman who stuck by her words and decisions back in the cottage all those years ago, after all.
The Sword Saint chuckled as well. The cottage had eight students, and there were only three of them in the Heavenly Mandate Realm. Furthermore, they had been able to advance due to Ye Futian being someone inherently special. The Sword Saint had actually been able to meet the mysterious figure due to Ye Futian, after all.
As for Gu Dongliu, nobody had expected him to have had such an extraordinary background. It was unknown what kind of path they would take in the future.
That mysterious figure claimed that he was but a witness of history, and the Sword Saint wondered what he would have witnessed.
Only time would tell.
Care to pay the Celestial Gate a visit? The clan leader of the Jiang Clan extended an invitation to Ye Futian before adding, Would the ones from Brahmas Pure Sky mind joining us?
Thank you for the offer, but I need to head back to the palace to train, Qin He said as she bowed slightly. She was perceptive enough to tell that both the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven and the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty wished to gain an ally in Brahmas Pure Sky. Yet, at such critical times, it was indeed inappropriate for her to make clear of Brahmas Pure Skys stance.
1Very well. The clan leader of the Jiang Clan nodded slightly. Qin He then smiled and said to Ye Futian, I shall return to the palace.
She then smiled and left, causing everyone to wear a weird expression.
The clan leader of the Jiang Clan then said, Goddess Qin He really is a rare and good match for you here in Heavenly Mandate Realm. Tianxing had hoped that you would be able to marry a goddess from Brahmas Pure Sky. Id be happy to do the matchmaking if youre willing.
Im married, Gu Dongliu then said.
The clan leader of the Jiang Clan took one look at Gu Dongliu and said nothing else. He deemed that his wife must have been training in the Lower Worlds. Gu Dongliu did not know of his status prior, but from how things were at the moment, his love in the past might not have been a good match for him.
1But then again, the clan leader saw it fit to leave Gu Dongliu as he was instead of interfering with anything. Despite what Gu Tianxing said before, it was absurd just to do everything as he wished.
The way I see it, Qin He might be interested in your little brother here, the clan leader then smiled and said. The relationship between Gu Dongliu and Ye Futian was such that if Ye Futian were to end up together with Qin He, it would have been all the same to him.
You know how to jest, senior. Ye Futian wore a bitter smile on his face while shaking his head. Although Qin He was extraordinary, he never had such intentions himself.
The clan leader then smiled and said, Both of you, take your time.
He then left the place.
Ye Futian, the Sword Saint, and the others did not stay for long in the Celestial Gate. They chatted briefly with Gu Dongliu before leaving.
The commotion was settled, yet Haotian City remained extremely rowdy. Mighty ones from all corners gathered in the city.
It was said that the ones from the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace were on their way. There were even many mighty ones who came early.
Ye Futian remained training quietly in the palace as he had always done. He had also paid a visit to the Wang Clan and sent Wuchen to train in mystical ways with them.
Quite a bit of time passed after that.
A group of mighty ones came to Haotian City on that day, and their presence caused quite a commotion.
The one who took the lead was none other than the crown prince of the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty.
The mighty ones from the dynasty did not head to the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven right away but had chosen to stay behind in Haotian City for a bit instead, seemingly waiting to meet up with the other mighty ones. The ones from the Violet Heavenly Palace had yet to arrive.
On the second day of the crown princes arrival, he took the mighty ones from the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and moved, heading towards the palace where Qin He was.
At present, there were many in Haotian City talking about Qin He and Ye Futian being very close, and they wondered if Brahmas Pure Sky would eventually ally with the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven.
If Qin He and Ye Futian were to end up as a couple, the chances of that happening would be high.
No one would have thought about anything like that before, but as honors continued to pile on Ye Futian, and he had such a close relationship with Qin He, which none from the Brahmas Pure Sky interfered with, everyone began to speculate and thought that it would be possible indeed.
If the number one virgin of Brahmas Pure Sky were to end up becoming a couple with Ye Futian, then Brahmas Pure Sky would definitely end up closer with the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven, since Gu Dongliu was Ye Futians elder brother in training.
If that were to happen, both the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace would be put on the defensive.
However, there was nothing they could have done about Ye Futian, as he had the backing of the Divine Elephants. If they were to act against Ye Futian, that would have been tantamount to declaring war against the Divine Elephants.
A group of people was seen descending from the sky right outside the palace of Brahmas Pure Sky on that day. The leading figure glittered all over and looked legendary.
The crown prince of Heavenly Mandate Realm would like to pay a visit to Goddess Qin He, a voice said, reverberating throughout the palace.
