The cultivators of Fate World had egxtremely hard expressions on their faces. One strike of the spear directed at them was enough to repel all the cultivators and send them running.
And now they were forbidden to compete, or they would be killed.
"Who are you?" the man in black released a dark light from his eyes and asked Ye Futian, his eyes were fixed on him.
They had never heard of this man, so why was he so strong?
The cultivators from the Xiao Clan and the illusion Island looked shocked. They did not expect Ye Futian to be so strong.
If the cultivators from the Fate World couldnt sustain that single strike, would they fare any better if the strike was aimed against them instead?
"Ye Futian from Tianhe Realm." Ye Futian replied. He looked at those from the Xiao Clan and the Illusion Island and said, "Now, can I participate in the competition?"
"Fine." Xiao Muyu agreed. Ye Futian had such strength, was it possible to keep him from participating?
The leader of the Illusion Island also nodded without saying anything more. Now they could only rely on luck. Clearly, this man was stronger than them.
Ye Futian smiled, and said, "Isnt it great that we can reason together? There was no need to resort to violence."
He had always used reason to convince the others.
But if they couldnt be convinced
What the third senior brother had said held true even today.
The cultivators from the Xiao Clan and Illusion Island twitched when they heard him. Reason?
Was there any room for reasoning in the matter of competing for treasures? They thought that it only mattered who was the strongest.
"My friend will follow me." Ye Futian looked at Xia Qingyuan, who was behind him. He was uneasy about leaving Xia Qingyuan out here by herself, so he wanted to take her with him.
"Sure." No one from the two major principalities disagreed.
"Thanks a lot." Ye Futian was very satisfied with their response. As disciples of the top principalities, they knew how to be reasonable.
"Lets go." The four of them moved forward together, and the people from Fate World did not act rashly again. Ye Futian still had the spear in his hand when he was walking and looked at them from time to time with a friendly smile on his face. However, no one had forgotten about the impressive strike that just took place.
The four of them walked to the middle of the lake. The lotus bloomed with all six petals and opened up, its brilliance enveloping the surrounding heaven and earth. Ye Futians eyes suddenly brightened. At a glance, he could feel that the lotus appeared to possess self-will.
All things in the world were filled with spirit and contained life, and it was the same with the lotus. Containing life was not equivalent to possessing self-will, but this blooming lotus gave Ye Futian a feeling that it did.
Divine light in six colors suddenly bloomed and enveloped the vast space. Countless lotus flowers seemed to appear around Ye Futian and the others, wrapping them inside. In just a moment, Ye Futian seemed to have entered a world of lotuses that isolated them from the outside world.
"Amazing," Xia Qingyuan whispered. Beneath their feet, lotus flowers also appeared.
"Huh?" Xiao Muyu frowned. This was a slightly different situation from what she had encountered before.
In a flash, she was heading toward the sky below, racing to the center of the lotus.
However, just as she was about to touch the core, she saw gleams of radiance, and the lotus flower disappeared right in front of her. It was as if it had turned into an infinite number of lotuses floating between heaven and earth.
Xiao Muyu looked surprised. They had come out from the previous space, and countless lotus flowers floated on the lake, appearing just like ordinary lotus flowers.
"Illusion, indeed." The eyes of a cultivator from Illusion Island became terrifying and looked at the lotus below. However, each lotus flower was almost the same, except for a few that were brighter than the others. His figure flashed as he waved his palms. The strength of the palm strike shattered the lotuses as he tried to eliminate the others from the True Lotus.
However, those lotus flowers regenerated again and again, floating silently on the lake surface as if they would never disappear.
Xiao Muyu waved her sleeves, wanting to draw the lotus into her sleeves. However, whenever a lotus disappeared, there would be more that appeared underneath without end, forcing her to stop immediately.
Xia Qingyuan looked at Ye Futian because she did not understand what was going on.
"It is reluctant to leave here, and wants us to leave on our own," Ye Futian said.
"Reluctant to leave?" Xia Qingyuan said, "Do you mean that the lotus has its own will?"
Ye Futian shook his head. He didnt really know either. It was said that a monk comprehended the Way under the willow tree, and he became a Buddha through a matter of a thought before entering the Renhuang Realm. That willow tree gave him an extraordinary sensation, as it seemed to contain life. And could life give spirit to all things?
What kind of realm was this?
"Perhaps, the gods like to meditate in the lake and nurture the spirit of the lotus." Ye Futian said. The illusion magic was so strong that he couldnt discern which lotus was the real one. His eyes were able to detect all kinds of unreality, but it couldnt detect the real lotus itself. What could this mean?
It meant that the lotus contained the same level of inheritance as his eyes.
It was born out of the nurturing of the Great Emperor, and clearly, it had already obtained the Way.
There were many ancient trees and divine plants in the Relic Garden, and many of them clearly held opportunities that caused many to compete. Although this lotus was extraordinary, only a few forces came here because of their similar abilities in cultivation. But they did not really understand. As for the willow tree, only the monk was comprehending under it. Perhaps many people knew that the willow tree was extraordinary, but they could not really comprehend anything from it.
Everyone had their own opportunities.
It seemed that Xia Qingyuans chances were better than he imagined.
Ye Futian walked on the surface of the lake, passing many lotus flowers. He looked at those lotuses and said, "All these flowers here are just one, arent they? There is no difference between you and the others."
He sat on the lake and put a lotus in his palm. This was why he might not see a distinction in any area. It was because they were all the same.
"Its just that the person you have been waiting for will probably never come back. Instead of enduring thousands of years of loneliness, its better to find someone new," Ye Futian said to the lotus. People from the Xiao Clan and other cultivators watched on with great curiosity.
This guy was actually talking to the lotus.
They all came from top principalities and knew that all creatures possessed spirits. But they had never seen this type of situation. Could it be true that this lotus flower really contained life?
Then that would mean that it had already obtained the Way.
"Qingyuan, sit down." Ye Futian looked up at the Xia Qingyuan, who was beside him.
Xia Qingyuan sat obediently next to him.
"Release your life spirit." Ye Futian said. Xia Qingyuan nodded, and her life spirit was released. A radiant lotus appeared. Its petals opened and closed. At this moment, Xia Qingyuan was like a fairy with a ray of sacred glory upon her.
"She is like you. Her life spirit is also a lotus. Lotuses are a part of life, and you could grow and accompany her cultivation of the way of life. If you merge into her life spirit and become a part of her, there will be someone growing with you so that you wont feel lonely anymore," Ye Futian murmured softly. The breath from his body was gentle, and a bright divine light flowed in the palm of his hand.
Everyone around looked at Ye Futian with a strange look.
Xiao Muyus eyes were full of curiosity. This was the first time she had seen someone grab treasure like this. Was he in a dialogue with the lotus? And asking it to select its own master!
They had never seen anything like it.
If it was in another circumstance, she would think that there was something wrong with Ye Futian.
However, this man was extraordinarily handsome. His white garment matched his white hair, gentle and elegant. Somehow, his dialogue with the lotus gave her a very mysterious feeling, as if he was a guru of some sort.
Xiao Muyu thought to herself that this mans age should be close to hers, yet he exuded an air that was not of this world.
Moreover, he was not fighting for the lotus for himself, but for the woman next to him. Was she the one he loved?
The light from Ye Futians palm had a trace of wondrous breath. The lotus flower gradually released rays of light, slowly floating upward and actually drifting toward the life spirit of Xia Qingyuan.
"What is this"
Everyone was shocked when they witnessed what was before them. Everything they saw now was incredible, but it was really happening in front of them.
Did this work too?
If they had known, they would have talked with the lotus already, without waiting for Ye Futian.
The light was getting brighter and brighter, and countless lotus flowers were now integrated into the lotus flower that floated above Xia Qingyuans head. The six-petal flower released a radiant divine light. Indeed, all the lotus flowers were one.
It truly understood.
At this moment, everyone was getting antsy.
However, at this time, Ye Futian got up, pointing the spear in his hand in the air, and said with a laugh, "I always believe in reason. Please respect the lotuss choice."
Respect a lotuss choice?
When everyone heard what Ye Futian said, they felt an urge to beat him up. However, they also felt the fighting intention of the spear, and no one dared to act rashly.
"You are not here to fight for yourself. Who is this?" Xiao Muyu asked, eyes on Xia Qingyuan.
"My friend, but whats the difference?" Ye Futian smiled.
"Why not give me the lotus? Xiao Muyu of the Xiao Clan could also be your friend." Xiao Muyu smiled provocatively and unleashed her charm. She was already a very beautiful woman with elegant temperament, and at the moment, she was working with all she had. She possessed extremely lethal skills of seduction.
Ye Futian was tempted for a moment but then smiled at Xiao Muyu. Ye Futian was not someone who could be swayed by beauty.
"Ill consider it if the Xiao Clan wants to propose marriage to me," Ye Futian said with a smile. Did it mean that he would no longer need to cultivate with such effort if he married the daughter from the top force of Emperor Realm?
Next to him, Xia Qingyuan was feeling warm and fuzzy, but when she heard Ye Futians words, she couldnt help but swear in a low voice. What a shameless b*stard.
In the future, if she could ever be moved by him again, she would
Xiao Muyu also froze and stared at Ye Futian. She must have been blind not to see that he was a shameless b*stard.
"Im just kidding! Do you really think Im that kind of person? This lotus and my friend fit together perfectly, and it took the initiative to choose its master. Naturally, it belongs to her. Whoever disagrees will have to go through me and my spear," Ye Futian said, standing guard next to Xia Qingyuan.
Xia Qingyuan was again warmed in her heart.
It seemed that maybe he was not so shameless, after all.
No one dared to move lightly. They watched the lotus flower merged into the Xia Qingyuans life spirit. In a flash, Xia Qingyuans life spirit released an extremely radiant glory as lotuses filled the sky. The way of heaven and earth poured into Xia Qingyuans body madly as she closed her eyes to meditate, absorbing the way of heaven and earth and perceiving the true meaning of the lotus.
The divine light shrouded her body. As Ye Futian glanced at her, he saw that Xia Qingyuans face was also illuminated by divine light, just like a glorious goddess.
Although she was rather fierce, if she put on something feminine, she should be pretty enough!
