"Do you really believe I can beak the seals with just a thought?"
Ye Futian spoke to those around him but saw the determinations in their eyes as they moved toward him.
Apparently, they totally believed it.
The monks from the Mountain Realm somehow appeared next to Ye Futian. These monks were treacherous and may have gotten some clues before. Thus, they believed even more that it was Ye Futians doing all along. Ye Futian might have set the whole thing up to cause the decimation of the cultivators from the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and to exhaust their strength in the process.
"My Lord Ye, dont you think we are sincere in our attitude?" said the monk of Shenxing Clan next to him.
Ye Futian narrowed his eyes to look at the monk next to him and cursed the bald donkey in his heart. What he said had sold him out completely, with no chance for explanation.
He would have no choice but to own up to it.
"The master is right, of course." Ye Futian, with a smile still on his face, said to the crowd, "My apologies. It was purely by accident that I broke the three seals without holding back."
Everyones eyes were on Ye Futian. It was really him who did it.
Breaking the seals with just a single thought.
Many looked at Ye Futian with fiery eyes. This was even more horrific than the assumption that Yi Tianyu had a method for unlocking the seals. If a trace of his thought was enough to unlock the seals, wouldnt it be possible for him to take all the treasures away from the Spatial Sacred Hall?
In the past, no one had ever done it before. All they were able to do was take away a few treasures.
Ye Futian was almost like a living treasure himself.
Next to him, Dou Zhao also blinked. He didnt really expect this guy to do what he said he would.
For now, Ye Futian was the center of all the attention, and the area became a little quieter. However, the attention of all the cultivators was fixed on Ye Futian alone.
"We need to neutralize him first and keep him under control. Then well make him surrender the method of unlocking the seals," a cold voice said. It was Ye Man. In the battle that just took place, both the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Snow Divine Kingdom suffered heavy losses. All of this was because of Ye Futian, and it must be avenged.
If it were not for her redirecting the attention back to Ye Futian, Yi Tianyu may have very well perished here.
"The grievance between the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and me has nothing to do with you. Why do you want to get involved?" Ye Futian glanced at Ye Man, then looked at the others and continued, "I have always been straight forward in everything I do. To be honest, there is some bad blood between the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and me, so I apologize that I used all of you for revenge. Now you all know that I can break the seals with my mind, and I can empty all that is in this temple. I will share the treasures with all of you to show the sincerity of my friendship, what say you?"
Many had a curious look on their faces. Ye Futian was facing a different situation than that of Yi Tianyu. Yi Tianyu really had no way of cracking the seals in the relic, and no one listened to his explanation, so what could he do other than be beaten?
But Ye Futian freely admitted that he was the one who could unlock the seals, so it was up to them to choose to be friends or enemies.
Now, this was an interesting proposition. Those monks were standing next to Ye Futian at the moment, as well as those from the Dou Tribe and the cultivators from Brahmas Pure Sky.
When Ye Man heard what Ye Futian said, the look on her face changed.
"If you want to make friends, how do you propose to divide all these goods?" the cultivator of the Martial God Clan from the Central Emperor Realm asked Ye Futian.
That was something the cultivators from other forces were also curious to know.
"It all depends on the depth of our friendship," Ye Futian said with a smile.
"You mean you will be the one to decide?" the cultivator from the Martial God Clan asked.
"If you were the one who could obtain all these the divine implements by unlocking the seals, would you allow someone else to decide who gets what?" Ye Futian replied, knowing that not everyone would accept his rationale.
As expected, many sneered upon hearing Ye Futians response and looked quite unimpressed. Clearly, many people were dissatisfied with his answer.
"If you do this, you will be greatly pressured" beside him, Long Chen reminded him.
"We all came from the Heavenly Mandate Realm. The principalities from the demonic realm and I go way back. You shouldnt be at odds with me, right?" Ye Futian said to Long Chen and other cultivators of the demonic clan.
There were no questions about the alliance of the Divine Elephants, and Yu Sheng took care of the Dragon Gods. Kong Xuan and the Peacock Demon Emperor had the Sky Demon Court under their influence. Additionally, his third senior brother was the heir to the way of the Demon God. No matter how he looked at it, the demonic powers from the Heavenly Mandate Realm should be firmly by his side.
"I want some good ones," Long Chen said.
"Sure." Ye Futian nodded.
"Sky Demon Court cannot be treated lesser than the Dragon Gods," Jun, suspended in the air, said to Ye Futian.
Ye Futian smiled and said, "So, I have to treat everyone equally because I dont want to offend anyone."
Almost all the cultivators from the Heavenly Mandate Realm in this area had arrived, their powers being the strongest. Out of five Renhuang cultivators, the Heavenly Mandate Realm had two. One was the Renhunag from the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty, and the other was the demon emperor of Sky Demon Court.
Divine Elephants were not a concern. Ye Futian had cultivated with them before, and the Divine Elephant Emperor specifically ordered his cultivators to support Ye Futian, demonstrating their extraordinary relationship. Naturally, they were on Ye Futians side.
This turn of event was an embarrassment to Yi Tianyu. Ye Futian had united the top forces of the demon realm behind the scenes, and it would greatly influence the future of the Heavenly Mandate Realm. It may even be very unfavorable to the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty. Qin He from Brahmas Pure Heaven was also very close to Ye Futian.
"It seems that it would not be good for me to stand against the Heavenly Mandate Realm," Gao Huang from the Ten Thousand Divine Mountains mused.
"You are welcome anytime," Ye Futian said with a smile.
"Its been a long time since we had this much harmony in the Heavenly Mandate Realm," Gao Huang said with a smile. Perhaps it was because there hadnt been anyone quite like Ye Futian who could make all his peers admire him. Yi Tianyu, the Crown Prince of Heavenly Mandate Realm, did not achieve this, and neither did Jun or Long Chen of the demonic realm.
Subtly, Ye Futian had become a symbol for this generation in Heavenly Mandate Realm, having replaced and far surpassed Yi Tianyu in the influence he exerted.
With all the principalities of the Heavenly Mandate Realm standing behind Ye Futian in an alliance together with the Dou Tribe, Ye Futian and his party had formed a rather powerful force.
Everyone was surprised. They didnt expect Ye Futian to wield such a strong influence in Heavenly Mandate Realm.
In comparison, Yi Tianyu, who was previously praised as unparalleled in his world, seemed far inferior to Ye Futian.
Their levels of influence were immediately clear.
Dou Zhao looked at Ye Futian and thought admiringly, "Impressive."
This man was truly remarkable. Judging from the influence he had demonstrated, this man was tremendously gifted in his talent, and it seemed that there was no shame in his being defeated by this man.
"Previously at Sword City, Brother Ye had been extremely honest in his conduct. Yuanyang Clan would be honored to call such a man friend." Yuan Hong was heard making the remark, indicating that there was yet another top force joining Ye Futians camp. In the current situation, they were not any less inferior than their opponents but had less Renhuang entities.
Of course, it also depended on the attitudes exhibited by the monks from Shenxing Clan.
Shenxing Clans attitude seemed to be particularly critical.
"What do you think?" Ye Futian asked the cultivators from the Martial God Clan.
"I have a proposition," the monk from Shenxing Clan said.
Ye Futian and the others directed their attention at him and heard the monk saying with a smile, "Divide the implements from the hall into five portions, and each side will receive two portions. Isnt this a win-win proposition?"
"How about the other portion?" Ye Futian asked.
"Naturally, thats for us," the monk replied with a smile. Shenxing Clan would want the portion that was the best.
"The master is also a jokester," Ye Futian said with a smile.
"If my Lord Ye does not accept it, why not listen to what the others might propose?" the monk smiled and said to the cultivators on the other side. Now, their position was of great importance, and may directly affect the situation on both sides. Under such circumstances, why shouldnt they spearhead the effort to come to an agreement?
"The master can get a portion as well as the rest of us, isnt that great?" The cultivator of the Martial God Clan looked at the Shenxing Clan monk. They didnt short the monks what they felt they deserved.
"I dont disagree; however, if Lord Ye accepts my proposal, I am still willing to give him a chance. After all, us monks do not like to get involved in all this killing. Peace is priceless," the monk said with a smile. Looking at his smiling face, Ye Futian inexplicably felt somewhat amused.
"No wonder you masters have been expelled by real Buddhists. Thats some wishful thinking you have," Ye Futian said with a smile. Did Shenxing Clan think that they deserved to have a portion entirely for themselves?
Now he was overthinking it.
The monk was not angry, but both wore fake smiles on their faces. He continued, "What is my Lord Yes final decision?"
"The seals of the Sacred Hall can only be opened by me. Therefore, only I can be the one who distributes the content. I will not accept any other suggestions." Ye Futian said with a smile, "Whether you are to be an enemy or a friend, its completely up to you."
"My Lord Ye is quite bold." The monk smiled and looked at the cultivators from the Martial God Clan. "Can you guarantee that we will receive one-fifth of the portion?"
"Shenxing Clan has one of the four great Renhuang. Of course, we can guarantee it," the Martial God Clan responded.
"Very good." The monk nodded with satisfaction, then said to Ye Futian, "Take care, Lord Ye."
With that said, he stepped toward the other side as if to say goodbye to a friend.
And so, the two sides were clearly separated, forming two major alliances. Gone was the scattered sand that they were before. This was probably something that had never happened before.
All this was because of one man.
"To the rats below, shouldnt you be showing yourselves now?" the cultivators of Shenxing Clan asked nonchalantly. When his words faded, he saw golden figures breaking out of the air, and they were all cultivators of the Purple Gold Rat Clan.
"Brother Yi, will our rat clan get some of the treasures?" Shu Huangsun asked Yi Tianyu.
"Of course." Yi Tianyu nodded.
"Ah, so you are one of our own. My apologies." The monk of Shenxing Clan smiled.
