1595 My Master
Cultivators from all walks of life in the city of the ruins continued to converge here, and Ye Futian was still there.
At the time of the Battle of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven, everyone dispersed and were sent to different regions by the divine matrix, so that everyone was separated from those that they knew.
This time, it was an opportunity to gather together again.
The bell resounded through the Nine Realms, and even the 3,000 Realms of the Great Path would know of the news. This once-in-fifty-years feast would attract all those who were interested.
At least, it was possible that Yu Sheng would be here.
He had been cultivating at the Dragon clan, and there was no way of knowing how he was in his cultivation.
The demonic clan in the Heavenly Mandate Realm had not yet arrived.
In addition, Ye Futian had to wait for the Little Condor. Their minds were linked. In fact, Ye Futian had always known the circumstances of the Little Condor, but the two were very far apart, and one was sent to one of the 3,000 Realms of the Great Path.
What was more interesting was that this b*stard actually got himself into a Renhuang family and hung out with their daughter day and night. According to the Little Condor, once he had become a demon beast companion, the others viewed him with great importance. Of course, this was all according to his own account.
And now, that family was also on its way to the Central Imperial Realm and was almost there, but there was still some time before they arrived.
Ye Futian seriously suspected that that jerk of a Little Condor was deliberately being untruthful.
He could perceive that the distance between the Little Condor and him kept getting closer.
He wondered if Wuchen would show up or not.
He knew of all the news regarding Yu Sheng and Little Condor, but he didn’t worry about them. He didn’t know where Ye Wuchen was at the moment, but, being guarded by the sword morphed by the Sword Emperor of Hanzhou, he should have no problem taking care of himself.
Then there were his older senior brother and third senior brother; he had no idea how they were doing.
On this day, many demonic tribes in the Heavenly Mandate Realm had arrived one after another.
Many demonic tribes such as the Dragon Gods, the Divine Elephants, and the Sky Demon Court seemed to come together. Their united front was awesome to behold, almost a little terrifying.
The mighty throngs of cultivators had arrived and found the encampment of the Heavenly Mandate Realm. Although they had some issues with the human cultivators of the Heavenly Mandate Realm, now with all Nine Realms converging, comparatively speaking, they were closer to their human compadres than with any other party.
This time, with the convergence of a countless number of forces and countless prominent characters, there would be a great storm in the Nine Realms.
Among the Dragon Gods, there were many pure-blooded dragon cultivators at the peak of Saint Realm. Among them, Long Chen was its unquestioned leader, as his strength had reached the peak of the Demon Saint. He was only a step away from being Demon Emperor. After this expedition, he would become the demon emperor.
Many cultivators of the Dragon Gods followed behind him, but there was a figure that seemed out of place. He stood with a demon emperor of the Dragon Gods.
The young man was clad in something pitch-black. It was as if he was covered by a dark armor. His build was hefty and full of domineering spirit; just that temperament alone was enough to stop one’s breath.
“I’m going out,” the youth said.
“Are you going to find him?” The demon emperor of the Dragon Gods next to him looked at the youth.
“Mmm,” the young man nodded. He had heard from the people of the Dragon Gods claiming that he was now cultivating at Taixuan Mountain in the Upper Heavens Realm and that he had had an adventure at the Divine Palace. If he went over to Taixuan Mountain’s camp area, he should be able to find out some news about him.
“You don’t plan to stay with us?” asked the demon emperor of the Dragon Gods. This guy was truly loyal to Ye Futian. After following the Demonic Dragon in cultivation for so long, his relationship with the Dragon Gods still seemed less than familiar.
The youth was, obviously, Yu Sheng. He did not respond.
“Come on. I’ll take you,” the demon emperor of the Dragon Gods said. It seemed that he was worried about Yu Sheng’s safety.
However, it was because of Ye Futian’s behest that he took Yu Sheng to cultivate with the Dragon Gods. At the time, Ye Futian and Gu Dongliu were considered to be the two most likely to change the political landscape of the Heavenly Mandate Realm, so the Dragon Gods were glad to grant this one favor to Ye Futian. In addition, Yu Sheng was extremely powerful, so he was greatly valued by the Demon Dragon, who had been teaching him cultivation deep in Longyuan.
Compared with the time when he first entered Longyuan, Yu Sheng was not the person he once was. Sometimes it seemed that he was a little different than he was before, but as for the specifics, he could not really say; it was just a curious feeling in general.
“Together.” A group of people came toward this way. The Demon Emperor of the Dragon Gods looked up and saw it was the group led by Zhu Yan the Demon Emperor. His son Zhu Zhao was also there. They, too, had dealings with Ye Futian, and Zhu Yan the Demon Emperor had helped Ye Futian before.
“Good idea.” The Demon Emperor of the Dragon Gods nodded and then flickered away. On the other side, other cultivators came along as well, and they were the cultivators of the Sky Demon Court. The Peacock Demon Emperor was also among them. He was followed by Kong Xuan.
On the way there, they encountered the cultivators of the Divine Elephants, which made quite an impression on the demon emperor of the Dragon Gods. It seemed that Ye Futian had an extensive network in the demonic realm, and he was acquainted with many parties.
At this time, where Ye Futian was located, Lord Taixuan opened his eyes and said to Ye Futian, who was a distance away, “Many demon tribes from the Heavenly Mandate Realm are coming. I think they are coming for you.”
Ye Futian, who was cultivating, stood up and looked up into the distance. Soon, he saw a mighty group of people coming this way. There were many parties with all sorts of cultivators.
And he saw many familiar faces.
Yu Sheng, Kong Xuan, Zhu Zhao, and many elders had all arrived.
Yu Sheng stepped out and walked directly toward Ye Futian. He towered over Ye Futian, who had to raise his head slightly to meet his eyes.
Stepping forward, Ye Futian reached out and slapped Yu Sheng on the shoulders. But Yu Sheng’s body was firmly rooted like a tower; it didn’t move even a little bit.
“How have you been these few years cultivating at the Dragon Gods?” Ye Futian asked with a smile.
“Do you want to try?” Yu Sheng asked.
“…” Ye Futian’s smile froze, looking confused. He looked at Yu Sheng and spat out, “Get the hell away.”
Yu Sheng then grinned and said to Ye Futian, “I’ve made great progress these few years. I’ve already stepped into Nirvana.”
“You think your wings are strong now.” Ye Futian glared at Yu Sheng, knowing that he had teased him in jest, but still, he would like to punch him.
However, whether or not he could succeed in hitting him was questionable.
Yu Sheng could take quite a beating in a fight. Ye Futian hadn’t seen anyone who could take a beating like Yu Sheng, and he was absolutely unmoved when he took the beating. However, if Yu Sheng caught someone, it would be something quite serious. This had happened many times before and was a proven fact.
Now, no one knew just to what extent had his physical body had evolved.
Those who were following behind watched the interactions of the two, secretly exclaiming that the friendship between these two was extraordinary.
Ye Futian looked at the people behind Yu Sheng and said, “It’s been a long time since I have seen you, elders.”
“I heard that you are out of control in the Upper Heavens Realm,” the Demon Emperor of the Dragon Gods said. The news of the atrocities committed by Ye Futian at the Divine Palace had already reached the Heavenly Mandate Realm, so they all knew.
“What realm are you now?” the cultivators of the Divine Elephants asked. Ye Futian and the Divine Elephants had an unusual relationship. Even now in his body was the imperial bones of their ancestorthe Divine Elephant Emperor of Ten Directions.
“Nirvana,” Ye Futian said with a smile.
“I know, I was asking, how far are you from Renhuang?”
“Should be soon.” Ye Futian smiled while everyone looked at him, speechless. His cultivation was faster than most.
Kong Xuan was a little flabbergasted. Was he almost Renhuang?
The speed of his cultivation had far surpassed hers, leaving her behind.
“Peacock Demon Emperor, you are here, too.” Emperor Xia walked over, looking rather surprised when he saw the Peacock Demon Emperor. They were old neighbors, but they did not expect to see each other here.
“Aren’t you here to join in the fun, too?” the Peacock Demon Emperor responded.
“Well, we can keep each other company. I was fretting about being bored,” Emperor Xia said with a smile.
“Elders, please sit down,” Ye Futian greeted. With so many people around, he didn’t know who to talk to first.
“No, Yu Sheng wanted to come over, so we walked with him here. Afterward, when you enter the God’s relic, you might have to face powerful opponents from all sides. If the need arises, we could join forces to form a united front against the others. Of course, if there are conflicts between us, remember to be merciful,” said the Demon Emperor of the Dragon Gods. After all, once they entered the God’s relic, anything could happen.
“I understand.” Ye Futian nodded.
“Well, we will go over there first.” The cultivators of the Dragon Gods left, and many others nodded slightly toward Ye Futian. They soon left one after another.
In the Central Imperial Realm, there was another large group traveling. On the journey, they frequently met up with others who were also going in the same directionthe City of the Ruins.
At this time, in the middle of this vast crowd, there was a woman with outstanding beauty, whose spirit was hard not to take notice. Her eyes were closed as if cultivating. Sitting beneath her was a giant Black Wind Condor, whose wings spread out to cover the sky, shielding the sun and sailing with the wind.
“We are almost at the City of the Ruins,” Black Wind Condor said, his eyes shining.
“How do you know?” The woman asked, her eyes still closed. She didn’t think he had ever been to the Central Imperial Realm.
“I told you, my mind is linked with my master. Presently, he is in the City of the Ruins.”
“You only have one masterme,” the woman said coldly.
Black Wind Condor wanted to speak some more, but it saw the woman open her eyes, and then a faint murderous intent enveloped the Black Wind Condor.
“There was once a woman as arrogant and unreasonable as you, and she was a princess,” the Black Wind Condor said.
“And?” the woman asked nonchalantly.
“And she was particularly well-behaved in front of my master,” the Black Wind Condor replied. Xia Qingyuan, who was far away at the City of the Ruins, sneezed.
“Then, what do you want to say?” The murderous intent shrouded the Black Wind Condor. This b*stard was really asking for it now. Without his daily beating, he soon returned to be the punk that he was.
“My master looks amazing, and countless women are crazy about him. He is greatly talented, and no one can match him. Those genius guys you are talking about are not even worthy of polishing shoes for my master. His light is more dazzling than the sun. Wherever he walks, legends about him spread. In short, you better fix your relationship with me now, like offer an apology or admit a mistake; otherwise, after you see my master, you will not be able to extricate yourself, and I will not be there to help you,” the Black Wind Condor said. He proudly raised his head.
The woman, green in the face, said coldly, “You are so shameless. Does your master know?”
Black Wind Condor said indignantly, “There was once a demon princess, beautiful and proud, just like you, and later…”
He hadn’t even finished speaking when the woman finally lost her patience and hit him on the head with a punch, so the Black Wind Condor glided freely in the air!
