Ye Futian raised his cup toward the powerful fighter from the Yuanyang clan and said, "Ill definitely head to the Yuanyang clan to have a look if there is the opportunity."
The two of them raised their cups toward each other. Ye Futian then told the people from the Xiao clan, "Ill go raise a few toasts."
"Ill head there with my teacher," Xiao Muyu said as she stood up with her wine cup.
Xiao Tan saw how proactive Xiao Muyu was and nodded slightly. Ye Futian was willing to become closer to the Xiao clan. Xiao Muyu was a good bridge between them. Furthermore, Xiao Muyu was very respectful of Ye Futian. Even though they had not been master and student for very long, they did get along rather well with each other.
Ye Futian wanted to reject her. After all, Xiao Muyu now had the status of the Xiao clans Goddess. However, he did not say anything when he saw Xiao Tan nod his head.
The two of them stood up together. Xiao Muyu followed beside Ye Futian. In that instant, several people looked toward them.
Ye Futian walked to the area where the Yuanyang clan was in. Yuan Hong immediately freed up a seat and said, "You can sit here."
The person beside him cooperated and stood up.
Ye Futian did not reject the offer and sat down. Xiao Muyu sat down behind him. That caused many people to be rather shocked. Xiao Muyu no longer had an ordinary status, yet she willingly took up a supporting role at this moment. It seemed like her respect for Ye Futian stemmed from deep within her heart.
"Thank you for what you did in the Gods Relic. Ive come specially to give you all a toast." Ye Futian smiled as he raised his cup toward the group.
"I also wish to help my teacher extend his gratitude." Xiao Muyu followed Ye Futians actions.
The elder of the Yuanyang clan smiled as he nodded. If they were not master and disciple, the two of them did look like a fine pair.
"Friend Ye, is the Goddess your first disciple?" the elder of the Yuanyang clan asked.
"She should be my first official disciple," Ye Futian nodded as he said, "However, with a disciple like Muyu, I suddenly have the urge to take in even more disciples."
"I know, female disciples." Yuan Hong laughed as he chimed in from the side.
"No, I might set up a school when I return to the Heavenly Mandate Realm in the future. Ill spread my path and teachings. Isnt taking in a bunch of disciples one of lifes greatest joys?" Ye Futian said half-jokingly.
"School?" Yuan Hong was a little shocked. Ye Futians abilities were still rather weak.
If they were in the lower realms of the 3000 Realms of the Great Path, Ye Futians current battle capabilities were enough to rule over a realm.
However, his strength would not be enough for him to set up a school in one of the Nine Supreme Regions.
"Its going to be a small school. At the very most, Ill affiliate myself with the other factions of the Heavenly Mandate Realm. After all, I am familiar with them. I could even drag Xiao Muyu along to consolidate my position," Ye Futian said casually.
"Thats feasible." Yuan Hong nodded.
"However, I just said that casually. If I truly set up a school and want to take in disciples in the future, the Yuanyang clan must send me a few students with good potential. Its best that You know it" Ye Futian said as he squinted.
"" Yuan Hongs expression darkened. This lads reputation had spread across the realms, yet he did not know how to pay attention to his image.
"Alright, Ill gather a few good students for you when that time comes and get them to enter our school. But dont play favorites," Yuan Hong promised. He knew that Ye Futian was only joking. Xiao Muyu was a female disciple. What could Ye Futian do to her?
They were merely kidding.
"Then thats a deal," Ye Futian said.
"Ill await that day. I will keep my word," Yuan Hong promised.
"Ill also give you my word in place of Yuan Hong," the elder of the Yuanyang clan smiled as he said.
"Then let me give you my thanks." Ye Futian did not go into detail and merely narrated his plan in a joking manner. The Yuanyang clan would naturally understand him when the time comes. It was up to them what they would do.
He could not elaborate his plan in detail like how he had told it to Xiao Tan. He had to hide a little of the truth.
Ye Futian chatted for a while here, then went to propose a toast with Shentian Academy and the Nantian Divine Kingdom to thank them for their actions outside the Gods Relic. This was only a way of strengthening their relationship. He did not expect them to be his allies if something happened in the future, but he wanted them to not be his enemies when that time comes.
After the banquet, the powerful fighters of various factions left one after the other. Although the Xiao clan politely got them to stay, those were mere formalities. None of the factions would stay for real.
It was evening. Ye Futian bade his goodbyes and prepared to leave.
"Teacher, can you not stay for a few more days?" Xiao Muyu asked Ye Futian.
"Friend Ye, Muyu is not wrong. This journey has been rushed, and we have not treated you appropriately. If you do not have anything urgent to attend to, why be in such a hurry to leave?" Xiao Tan also tried to get him to stay. It would be good if Ye Futian could stay and give the juniors of the Xiao clan some pointers. If he took a fancy to any of them, Ye Futian might even take them in as his disciple and nurture them as he did with Xiao Muyu.
Xiao Muyu nodded her head seriously. She looked at Ye Futian longingly and said, "I havent had the chance to serve you well."
Ye Futian looked at Xiao Muyus pitiful expression. Xiao Muyu was even pulling on his sleeve. He did not bear to leave.
"Muyu, we are family. You dont have to put on an act in front of me," Ye Futian said with a smile.
Xiao Muyus expression darkened. She released her hand and rolled her eyes toward Ye Futian. "Didnt you say that you want to be served well by your disciple. I really cant bear to see you leave so soon."
"I believe you," Ye Futian said with a smile. However, she was acting more exaggerated than she was before. Her pretense was too obvious She had underestimated him as his teacher.
Ye Futian turned to look at Xiao Tan and the rest of the people and said, "Elder, well have many chances in the future, but I really have several things to accomplish."
"Thats fine." Xiao Tan did not insist after he saw that Ye Futian was determined to leave. He said, "Come frequently if you have the time. You can inform us if you encounter any trouble."
"Alright. Thank you, elder." Ye Futian nodded, "Ill take my leave."
He then said to Xiao Muyu, "Youve already become the Goddess of the Xiao clan. You have to train well. As the chief disciple, you must not tarnish my reputation."
"I know," Xiao Muyu said in frustration.
"Im leaving," Ye Futian said. He then left together with Xia Qingyuan and the three other people in his group. His group disappeared into the horizon in the blink of an eye.
Xiao Muyu dragged her long black gown and walked forward. She only stopped when she reached the front of the steps. She got into a daze as she looked at the figures gradually disappearing into the horizon.
Fate was a wonderful thing. She remembered that she had met Ye Futian because he had snatched her lotus in the Gods Relic for Xia Qingyuan.
Now, he had become her benefactor.
Even though he was very improper, he left a deep impression in her heart. They had only interacted for a short time, yet he had taken up an important position in her heart.
"You cant bear for him to leave?" Xiao Tan asked as he walked to Xiao Muyus side.
"A little," Xiao Muyu nodded as she said.
"That lad is exceptional. Who knows what kind of storms they would create in the 3000 Realms of the Great Path now that they had left," Xiao Tan muttered, "We can only wait and see.
It was clear that he thought highly of Ye Futian.
Ye Futian continued to train silently when he returned to Shentian Academy.
Time passed without him knowing. Half a year has passed. Ye Futian did not cause trouble during this time. No one in Shentian Academy disturbed him.
Half a year later, Ye Futian and his group secretly left Shentian Academy. However, he still invited the attention of several people.
After all, many people in the area outside Shentian Academy were paying close attention to Ye Futian. However, no one expected Ye Futian, who had trained silently for a year, to suddenly disappear with the rest of his group. When several people came to the pavilion the next day, they realized that it was empty. The Matrix was also destroyed. It was as if Ye Futian had never come here.
Shentian Academy naturally caught wind of the news. However, Shentian Academy and Ye Futian had a transactional relationship. They naturally did not care if Ye Futian stayed or not.
In the Tianhe Realm, within the mountain ranges. This place felt like paradise. It was extremely quiet. No one disturbed the area.
A young lady was training at the peak of a mountain. She was surrounded by Sword Will.
However, she seemed to have sensed something. She opened her eyes and looked up in the sky, only to see a powerful aura descending into her surroundings. Her expression suddenly changed. She turned around and moved quickly, but her grandmaster already knew of her intentions. He stood in front of her silently.
"Ping an, its your Uncle-Master," the Sky River Great Elder said. Xu Pingan froze for a moment, then turned around and looked up in the sky. She saw a figure descend from the sky. He had white hair and was dressed in a white robe. He was incredibly charismatic. It was Ye Futian.
Ye Futians figure descended in front of Xu Ping an. He reached out and stroked Xu Ping ans face and said, "Ping an, hows your cultivation coming along?"
His teacher, Qi Xuangangs, senior had died in battle for him. His son had also committed suicide and left behind the lone Xu Ping an. Ye Futian truly saw Xu Ping an as his junior and family.
"Ive broken through the first level," Xu Ping an said, "Uncle-Master, your demeanor has changed."
"Your Uncle-Master is already a Renhuang," the Sky River Great Elder said. He walked over and looked at the powerful fighters in the air and asked, "Are they all your partners?"
Ye Futian nodded, "Weve come here to get you to come out of the mountains, grandmaster."
"For what?" the Sky River Great Elder asked.
Ye Futian told the Sky River Great Elder his plans of setting up a school at the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
The Sky River Great Elder fell silent.
"Ill definitely attract the attention of the Shen clan if I leave. The Shen clan might seem to have forgiven me over the years, but they are always keeping an eye on me," the Sky River Great Elder said.
"Thus, well have to trouble Lord Taixuan and pull the members of the Xiao clan into the school when that time comes. That way, we would be able to resist the pressure of the Shen clan," Ye Futian said.
"Alright." The Sky River Great Elder nodded, "Come notify me when that time comes, Ill head there directly."
"Alright." Ye Futian nodded. He turned back and saw Little Condor flying to his side.
"This is my demon beast partner. Its thoughts are connected to mine. Itll stay here so that I can notify you when the time comes," Ye Futian said. That way, he need not make another trip here.
"Thats good." The Sky River Great Elder nodded.
"Since that is the case, Ill have to head back to the Heavenly Mandate Realm first," Ye Futian said directly. He had no intention of staying.
"Go." The Sky River Great Elder did not attempt to hold him back. Ye Futian nodded, then looked at Xu Ping an and said, "Ping an, work hard. When that time comes, you can come to the Heavenly Mandate Realm with the grandmaster and train."
"En, I know." Xu Ping an nodded. Her Uncle-Master saw her as a child, but her cultivation level was not low!
"Grandmaster, Ill head off now," Ye Futian said as he sliced through the air and left. He brought his group from this place back to the Heavenly Mandate Realm!
