Ye Futian was speechless.
The Sky River Great Elder and the lady of the divine clan came together, which seemed to be a romantic but poignant story. He was a genius with qualifications, so the divine clan had no complaints.
The Great Elders daughter, the Teachers wife, had a similar story in the Tianhe Realm. But this time, the couple was opposed by the authoritarian Divine Clan. The Teachers wife was the chosen successor of the divine treasure, the hope of the clan. All members of the clan had fixed their eyes on her, how could they allow her to be with a man whose talent was not very outstanding.
The successor chosen by the Divine Clan must be a peerless genius, a lady of her time beyond compare, with the blood of the divine clan flowing in her body. She was the daughter of the Sky River Great Elder and the daughter of the Divine Clan, but she chose Teacher as her partner. Ye Futian did not know whether he should be happy for Teacher or not. Although Grandmaster said that Teachers talent was not top-notch, his status of heart was extraordinary. Ye Futian also felt that his teacherthe former Great Li Imperial Advisordeserved all these things.
Humans were fortunes fools. For these two remarkable women of the Divine Clan, Teachers wife departed this life, and Grandmasters wife was brought back to the clan. Grandmaster didnt know if she was alive.
Moreover, they also experienced the disastrous war, which let rivers of blood flow in the Tianhe Realm. All that had happened was too cruel.
Lord Taixuan said that Grandmaster had students all over the world, and he taught at least 3,000 disciples personally. Many of his disciples must also be on his side, who completely provoked anger in the Divine Clan. The furious divine clan came down from the Supreme Realm and annihilated the whole Tianhe Realm. How cold-blooded they were.
"Without these two ladies, no one would have been able to survive, and I might have also died in the war. They were so outstanding. Both Xuangang and I couldnt compare with them," Sky River Great Elder sighed. One fought for death, and the other one sought death.
Hearing the old man lament, although Ye Futian didnt experience the events of that time, he seemed to be able to see the peerless elegance of these two women. They sacrificed themselves to save their lovers.
No wonder the Teachers hope was just that Feixue could live well. As for anything else, maybe he didnt care at all. He also understood that there was no hope for revenge in this life. Some families were strong enough to make one despair. Living in the shadow of the destruction of a realm, how could he not despair?
"Since there was a great disparity in strength, why did they choose to go to war?" Ye Futian sighed. Why did they go to that point? Shouldnt they give up the idea when being compared with life?
Being alive meant hope.
"You may not know the character of your Teachers wife. Although she was young at that time, her personality was extremely strong. She gave Feixue the treasure without the consent of the family. She wanted her to inherit it, thinking that the family would compromise and accept your Teacher as well as Feixue because of it. However, she still underestimated the persistence of the clan and how obstinate the clan was. They wanted to take Feixue to the family and take out her bones to get the thing. Of course, your Teacher and his wife couldnt tolerate it. A battle quickly broke out, and then the whole situation went out of control."
The Sky River Great Elder sighed. He could still remember all things that happened in the battle. Although he was revered by the people of Tianhe Realm and was titled Sky River Great Elder, he always thought that he was not as prestigious as his wife; she was truly a peerless lady.
"It is the story. So many years have passed, and I didnt expect I would mention it to a young man like you, but it is not a secret. From now on, you should just keep in mind that your Deed of Thorough Comprehension was taught by me. When you are outside, just say you are my disciple. Dont let people know the existence of your Teacher; otherwise, it will be very bad for you, "Sky River Great Elder said.
After the things of that year, the Divine Clan still did not give up searching for Qi Xuangang and Feixue. The treasure was still in Feixues body. Although they were the ones who actually obtained them, the Divine Clan always regarded it as a treasure belonging to the Divine Clan. They later gave up after they failed to find it. After all, it was impossible to pay attention to countless realms forever, and they didnt have so much manpower to handle the task.
However, once there was a clue, people of the clan would definitely investigate it to the end, so if they saw Ye Futians Deed of Thorough Comprehension, they would definitely recognize it.
"I see," Ye Futian replied carefully, nodding.
"During this time, you can stay here to cultivate," the Sky River Great Elder said again.
Ye Futian looked at this old man with white hair, the top figure known as the Sky River Great Elder, who wore a lot of wrinkles of time on his face. The things that happened in the past must have hit him very hard.
"Grandmaster, dont you blame my Teacher?" Ye Futian asked. Except for Teacher, everyone in the Sky River Great Elders family stood on the peak of the realm with extraordinary life experience, but because of the Teacher and his wifes marriage, all the tragic things happened. Didnt the Sky River Great Elder regret allowing them to be together?
"If I had blamed him, would he become my son-in-law?" the Sky River Great Elder said carelessly. "At that time, I had many disciples. Many of them were top-notch people, and countless people had outstanding talents. Even the Divine Clan sent their cultivators to study under my guidance. As a teacher, I should have favored the most talented disciples. However, your Teachers temperament was closest to mine, and he was most like me. Even though his talent was lacking, I knew he would still become a master one day. Cultivators are never short of time. As long as he could hold on, he would be able to surpass me, and with his status of mind, he would certainly survive the time.
"Unfortunately, such an opportunity was not given to us. I heard you said that he hadnt entered the Renhuang Plane until a few years ago, and I can understand that his state of mind must have been greatly hit, but since he had become emperor, he must have gradually come out of the shadow of that time."
Lord Taixuan said, "Its been so many years. You should come out as soon as possible. How spirited the Sky River Great Elder was in those days, but now you are just listless. I am afraid that the people of Tianhe Realm will forget you soon."
"I am afraid the Tianhe Realm will not forget me," the Sky River Great Elder said. He felt he was the sinner of the Tianhe Realm.
"Come on," Lord Taixuan shook his head and said, "I will not persuade you anymore. I have known you for so many years. You used to be more outstanding than me and should have also entered my Plane, but you still cant make the breakthrough. Its time to reflect on yourself. I sent you your successor, and now you should have an idea of how to teach him. He has entered the ancestral land of the Divine Palace, a very important disciple to your son-in-law. In the future, he can be a great person," Lord Taixuan said. "Ive finished my task, so I wont bother you anymore."
When he talked, Lord Taixuan stood up and got ready to leave.
"Sir, will you go back?" Ye Futian asked.
"Yes. You focus on cultivating. Changing to another environment and seeing different scenery can help you make a breakthrough," Lord Taixuan said. Ye Futian nodded and didnt say anything. A person like Lord Taixuan could naturally come and go as he pleased.
The friendship between noblemen was as pale as water. He had shown his sincerity by coming to see the Sky River Great Elder and send Ye Futian here.
"Ill take care of that girl for you, dont worry. Now many people in the Upper Heavens Realm are aiming at you. No one will know that you are here," Lord Taixuan said, smiling. He then looked at the Sky River Great Elder and said, "I should go now."
"Okay," the Sky River Great Elder said calmly, nodding. Lord Taixuan stepped out and disappeared directly.
After Lord Taixuan left, Sky River Great Elder turned to Ye Futian and said, "You only mentioned that your teacher was separated with you in the Heavenly Mandate Realm. Where is Feixue? Isnt she with you?"
"No," Ye Futian said, shaking his head.
"Where is she?" The old man asked.
Ye Futian looked at him and wanted to say something, but he was silent again. The old man nodded when he saw his reaction and said, "You dont have to tell me anymore."
"Teacher has several disciples besides me. They are taking care of Feixue, and Feixues cultivation is progressing very fast now. She is totally safe," Ye Futian said.
"Good," the old man said and nodded, "you are very cautious."
"Grandmaster, I " Ye Futian stuttered, looking embarrassed.
"But you are right, dont absolutely trust anybody except yourself and your teacher," Sky River Great Elder got up and said. "Follow me."
He walked forward, and Ye Futian followed him.
On the ancient peak, the Sky River Great Elder arranged a lot of barriers. They came to a huge cave for cultivation. The old man walked in first, and Ye Futian followed him through a long corridor in the cave. They entered the inside of the mountain.
The sight became bright suddenly. The cave was huge, and the divine light was shining. Inside the cave, ancient characters were suspended in the air, rotating and spinning.
"Qian, Kun, Li, Kan" Ye Futian looked at these characters, each of which was corresponding to one ancient character in the Deed of Thorough Comprehension.
These characters seemed to take away the power of the world inside the cave, forming a vacuum and converging into a beam. In the middle of the lower space surrounded by ancient characters, a phantom figure condensed and emerged. It was not a real person, but a phantom body formed by the Path of sky and earth.
"Although your teacher has taught you the cultivation method of the Deed of Thorough Comprehension, I guess it is not complete, and the mood is lacking. Here is engraved by me and contains the true meaning of the Deed of Thorough Comprehension. You can cultivate here for a while to fully comprehend it," Sky River Great Elder told Ye Futian.
"Thank you, Grandmaster," Ye Futian replied, nodding.
"The Deed of Thorough Comprehension was not created by me. I also obtained it by coincidence. Its knowledge is extremely mysterious and deep. Even though your talent is outstanding, you should still spend time cultivating it carefully. At least it could assist you in cultivating until you reach my Plane, and even higher," Sky River Great Elder said to Ye Futian. Ye Futian nodded.
"I will get out. You can practice here," said Sky River Great Elder. He turned and left, leaving Ye Futian alone in the cave, and went outside.
Sky River Great Elder came to the edge of the cliff and looked up at the sky. At this moment, his slightly cloudy eyes became extremely sharp, as if his fierce stare could pierce through the sky.
However, at the next moment, he lowered his head and regained his original appearance. He still wore that dejected look and walked towards one direction in the mountain.
At this time, outside the Tianhe City, a figure was standing in the crowd. He wore a straw hat and was looking up to the front, a little dazed.
After so many years, he finally came back.
He had thought he would never return, but today, there was nothing to worry about anymore. After separating from his disciple, no one would know the relationship between them. It was good since, in this way, he could cut off his link with the past!
