For the next couple of months, Ye Futian focused on cultivating.
At the end of the 10,035th year of the Divine Prefecture Calendar, Yu Sheng broke through to the next level and became a demonic emperor.
And just as expected, he forged a perfect Divine Wheel.
Moreover, even though he had not needed Ye Futians help, he was still able to do it.
Now, of the people beside Ye Futian, Gu Dongliu, Yu Sheng, Yaya, and the Swordmaster of Lihen all had perfect Divine Wheels, as well as Ye Futian himself and many others in the Heavenly Mandate Realm. If they had Dou Zhao and Xiao Muyu as well, then their total number of Renhuangs would be comparable to any of the other powers that had gone to the Gods Relic with Ye Futian.
However, this matter was not widely known yet and had not caused too much of a disturbance.
Otherwise, all of the Nine Realms would be shaken by this news.
On this day, a group of people came to Ye Futians pavilion. Among them was a Renhuang with a sixth tier Divine Wheel, showing how powerful their formation was.
But they did not directly rush into the pavilion. They stopped outside and asked permission to enter.
Ye Futian had seen several of the people among them before; they had shown up with Xiao Muyu. They must be from the Xiao clan.
Several months ago, she had broken through to the next level and left as Ye Futian had asked her to temporarily return to her family.
She did so, and there had been no news from her in several months.
Now, seeing the cultivators from the Xiao clan coming, Ye Futian guessed that they were probably bringing her.
"We are here from the Xiao clan, Emperor Ye," said the old man at their head with a slight bow. Although he was in the mid-tier of Renhuangs, he was still very polite to Ye Futian. In ordinary circumstances, this man would absolutely be Ye Futians senior.
There was a huge gap between him and the sixth tier of the Divine Wheel.
"No need to be so polite, elder," said Ye Futian with a bow. "Why have you come?"
"Several days ago, the Goddess of the Xiao clan decided to invite many heroes to observe a ceremony. We are here to extend the invitation to you," said the elder with a smile.
A look of surprise came over Ye Futians face. He did not know the Xiao clan that well. Did the Goddess mean to pass on their inheritance?
"You could have sent someone to notify me; there was no need to come in person," said Ye Futian. But the man had said he had come to offer an invitation, not just to notify.
He had guessed something.
A smile appeared on the elders face. "The Goddess personally asked us to. You are her master, so she should have come personally. She originally intended to, but there are many family matters that she must attend to, so she had to send me instead. Please forgive the impropriety."
"Of course," said Ye Futian with a smile. It seemed that once Xiao Muyu forged her perfect Wheel of the Great Path, her position within the family had changed.
In the Gods Relic, the most outstanding people had been Jian Qingzhu, Shen Hao, Nan Luoshen, and some others. Those who had forged perfect Divine Wheels and then received ritual implements were now bright symbols and were now the most prestigious people in their forces.
But there were many top disciples who were at the top of the Saint plane, but would now not necessarily be their forces heirs.
This had been the case for Xiao Muyu.
But now the Xiao clan had made her a Goddess and invited everyone to the ceremony. That must mean that she was now like Shen Hao and Nan Luoshen: she had become one of the bright stars of her faction.
"Thats amazing," Ye Futian thought to himself with a smile. He also knew that man who had come to give him the invitation was very kind.
"I thank you for the invitation. Should we go now?" asked Ye Futian.
"The Goddess would like to see you first, so she hopes that you can come as soon as possible. Of course, if you are busy, we can wait for you," said the old man with a smile.
"Wait for me just a moment. Ye Futian turned and said, "I am going, you all stay here."
"Futian, I will go with you," said Jiang Chengzi. Over the past few days, he had grown to understand just how powerful Ye Futian was. This was a man who could change the world. No wonder the oracle had made that prophecy about him.
Thus, there would always be people following him. Between him and Hua Jiangshan, one of them needed to go.
"Alright," said Ye Futian with a nod.
"I will go as well," said Xia Qingyuan, stepping up beside him.
She had warm feelings towards Xiao Muyu, and it would soon be the 10,036th year of the Divine Prefecture Calendar.
Ye Futian looked at her, then nodded slightly. "Alright. You may come with us as well. Three people are enough. We will stay there for a few days then return."
Everyone nodded. Right now, the most important thing for them was cultivating, so they could not all go to the Xiao clan.
Ye Futian, Jiang Chengzi, and Xia Qingyuan walked down to the cultivators from the Xiao clan.
"Lets go, elder," said Ye Futian.
"Alright," said the elder with a nod. They all rose into the air and disappeared in a moment.
At that moment, people from various forces were arriving at the Xiao clan.
Ye Futian and the others were flying through the air.
"Elder, will this ceremony be very grand?" Ye Futian asked.
"The Gods and Goddesses of the Xiao clan are the heirs of our family. Once they have their title bestowed upon them, the whole family will assist and prepare for the future management of the family. A ceremony celebrating this will naturally be grand," said the elder with a nod. "Announcing this to the world is also a kind of protection for the Goddess."
Ye Futian nodded in understanding. This would likely be similar to when a Dynasty bestowed a title upon a prince. Once they held the ceremony, the prince would officially become the heir. From then on, outsiders would not dare to attack them lightly.
This was just like Shen Hao and Nan Luoshen. Who would dare attack them? Doing so would be declaring war.
"Why did they choose Muyu?" asked Ye Futian.
"She forged a perfect Divine Wheel when she broke through to the Renhuang plane, as you know. She also performed admirably at a sparring session within the family not long ago, dazzling everyone. Thus, the family made this decision," said the elder.
"I understand." Ye Futian thought that the Xiao clan must have its own assessment method.
It seemed that Xiao Muyu had completely changed after forging a perfect Divine Wheel.
The Xiao clan was the second place that Ye Futian had gone in the Central Emperor Realm after Tianshen Academy.
The majestic mansion of the Xiao clan rose up level upon level, made up of temples and castles. If Tianshen Academy seemed like a celestial realm, the Xiao clan seemed like a divine residence.
Once Ye Futian and the others entered, they attracted a lot of attention. Many people bowed to them while others watched from afar.
Not long before, they had heard that Xiao Muyu, who had just been bestowed the title of Goddess, had a master.
Moreover, the master was extremely young and not of that high a level. But he was still a legendary figure. He had forged a perfect Divine Wheel within the Gods Relic and performed outstandingly.
This made many people surprised. Why would their Goddess treat this Ye Futian as a master?
Later news had spread through the Xiao clan that Xiao Muyu had only been able to forge a perfect Divine Wheel with his help.
As for how much he had helped her, no one knew. Perhaps Xiao Muyu was the only one who did.
"The Goddess has moved into the Goddess Palace, Emperor Ye." The elder who had led them here pointed it out. They continued on, passing over countess temples and castles. It was like they were heading to the palace of heaven itself.
The Goddess Palace had a style all its own. It was tall and mighty.
When Ye Futian and the others arrived, they saw a group of people coming out to greet them. The woman at their head wore a long black dress that hung down to the ground. She looked radiant under the bright sunlight, as noble and profound as a black pearl.
This woman was naturally Xiao Muyu.
"Does she have the aura of a queen?" Ye Futian watched the woman coming towards him. She seemed completely different than before, even different than when she had first become a Renhuang. She seemed extraordinarily confident and noble, just like a real queen, both beautiful and outstanding.
Of course, cultivation was able to make people change. Before, if Xiao Muyu had stood before Nan Luoshen and Chang Xi, she would not even be noticed. But now, she was much more noticeable.
It seemed that a lot had happened over the last few months. Xiao Muyu had changed a lot.
Xia Qingyuan was stunned when she saw Xiao Muyus transformation. She wondered if she would change that much when she reached the Renhuang plane.
"Greetings, master," said Xiao Muyu with a bow as she reached Ye Futian. Then she looked up at the young man before her, a slight smile in her eyes. Although her master was quite unorthodox, he had truly changed her life.
"Not bad," said Ye Futian with a smile and a nod. She was truly worthy of being his disciple.
"Please come in," she said, leading the way. Suddenly, the people behind her stepped to both sides, leaving a path. They were all acting extremely politely. From this, it was obvious how high a position Xiao Muyu held.
Ye Futian did not stand on ceremony, but walked directly forward, following Xiao Muyu. Xia Qingyuan followed behind him. When Xiao Muyu saw her, she whispered, "Sister."
Xia Qingyuan nodded back to her as she walked forward, a strange look on her face. She followed Ye Futian, her head slightly bowed.
"Farewell, uncle," Xiao Muyu said to the elder who had brought Ye Futian to her.
"Take good care of Emperor Ye," said the man.
"Mmm," said Xiao Muyu with a nod. "You may all leave, I have some things to talk to my master about."
After they left, Xiao Muyu followed Ye Futian into the Goddess Palace. Only she, Ye Futian, and Xia Qingyuan were there.
"I hope I have not embarrassed you in any way, master," said Xiao Muyu with a smile.
"You have done well," said Ye Futian with a nod. He found a place to sit, then looked at her and said, "Come here and let me see you more clearly."
Xiao Muyu walked up to him, looking at him a little warily. Was he going to pat her on the head again?
"I am a Goddess now, so you should treat me honorably," she said as he reached out to her.
"Shouldnt you respect your master?" said Ye Futian.
She narrowed her eyes at him. What did respecting her master have to do with being patted on the head?
What a strange habit of his!
She glared at him, but still came forward and lowered her head, a little bit of indignation in her eyes.
She was a Goddess after all, and everyone in the Xiao clan looked at her with respect. Those of her generation were even more respectful.
No use thinking about, she would just endure it.
"Good," said Ye Futian with a smile. "I have come so far to visit you, and my shoulders are a bit sore."
"Let me massage them for you," she said, gritting her teeth and walking behind him. She was about to have a ceremony held in her honor, and here she was rubbing his shoulders.
"That feels great!" said Ye Futian, closing his eyes. Then he whispered, "Why would one accept female disciples if not for enjoyment!"
Did male disciples just not have this talent?
Xia Qingyuan looked at Ye Futian coldly. She had never seen such a shameless master!
