The Purple Gold Rat clan was resplendent and magnificent. Since the Purple Gold Rat Emperor had reached the peak of his power and founded the clan, they liked to keep everything luxurious. Perhaps this was because they had once been used to living underground.
Now, down in the golden earth, the Purple Gold Rat Emperor led a group of cultivators, preparing to set out for Celestial City in the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven.
Although there had been some enmity between them before, they had formed an alliance in the Gods Relic. Ye Futian had destroyed the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace, but had not sent people to watch them. It seemed that they were not worth destroying.
After thinking for a while, the Emperor decided to go and admit his guilt. He brought some of their treasures as well as the rat, who had once offended Ye Futian in the mountains to ask for forgiveness.
The Purple Gold Rat Emperor was a figure capable of bending and stretching to accommodate.
Moreover, today they were going to the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven. If Ye Futian would not forgive them, they could only fight to the death, trying to take Ye Futian with them.
"Lets go," said the Purple Gold Rat Emperor. Suddenly, beams of golden light shone out as they prepared to set out.
"Hmm?" Just at the moment they were about to leave, the Purple Gold Rat Emperor suddenly frowned. He felt that something was not right.
Then, his expression changed.
Soon, several powerful demonic auras descended, as if they had come from a great distance. The Purple Gold Rats expressions all changed. They looked up into the sky, where four cultivators appeared at the same time. Three great demon masters were there, in addition to Jiang Chengzi.
At that moment, the Purple Gold Rat Emperors heart froze.
They were finished!
This was the formation that had destroyed the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty.
What did that alliance mean?
Ye Futian had never planned to let the Purple Gold Rat Emperor go. The head of the Wang clan had died at the Emperors hands, so if he let them go, how could he maintain relations with the Wang clan? The Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven would not let them go either.
Moreover, Ye Futian was very aware of what was happening in the Purple Gold Rat clan. They had discussed how to destroy him if there was a change in the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven.
Boom! Without any words, the four great figures attacked. They had always hated the Purple Gold Rat Emperor.
Several of the rats showed strong looks of regret in their eyes. Why had they provoked Ye Futian?
Of course, this was not the main reason why they were being destroyed.
After the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace had were destroyed, the Purple Gold Rats had disintegrated. The Purple Gold Rat Emperor and several of the top rats were killed, and the others were taken away by the three great demon clans. Each of the demon clans ruled over many races, so they did not completely exterminate the Purple Gold Rats. It was like leaving the net open on one side, but in the end, the rats were enslaved.
Three of the great powers of the Heavenly Mandate Realm had been destroyed, completely changing the balance of power within the Heavenly Mandate Realm. But what was strange was the people of the Heavenly Mandate Realm did not think that this change would weaken the realm very much. They even thought that the weakening would only last for a little bit. In the future, they would become even stronger.
Perhaps this was because the Heavenly Mandate Realm had never been very unified. And the youth whose name shook the Nine Realms had said he would found an academy there where all the people of the world would be allowed to pursue their own Path. They would not prevent others from becoming stronger.
Moreover, all of the top figures of the realm seemed willing to believe that he could do it.
And if that was the case, why wouldnt others believe it?
The 10,036th year of the Divine Prefecture Calendar would be one that was entered in the history books of the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
In Celestial City, the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven began rebuilding. Countless people from the city came to help. Seeing the people of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven returning naturally made them very happy.
As the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven began to take shape, the cultivators from Yingzhao Mountain arrived. They had been afraid for a time after the Purple Gold Rats had been destroyed, but no one had come to destroy them. Thus, they had been relieved, knowing that Ye Futian was not planning to attack them.
Ye Futian did not have any hostility towards them, but the three great demon clans went there to seize their treasures. This hurt them deeply, but they did not dare complain.
Afterward, they could only lower their heads and promise not to cause trouble. The Demon Realm of the Heavenly Mandate Realm was destined to be controlled by the Divine Elephants, the Dragon Gods, and the Sky Demon Court.
From then on, the turmoil within the Heavenly Mandate Realm was ended.
Now it would be a different story.
Ye Futian, Jiang Chengzi, Hua Jiangshan, Gu Dongliu, and more were all at the Celestial Gate.
They watched all the busy figures at the gate. Jiang Chengzi and Hua Jiangshan both had appreciative smiles on their faces.
The Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven was finally recovering from their disaster. The threat from the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty had been completely eliminated.
"Elder, when is the Celestial Gate planning on accepting new disciples?" Ye Futian stood above the Celestial Gate, hair flying in the wind and looking off into the distance. "Right now, the people of Celestial City are clamoring to train here."
"First, I want to send our Renhuangs out through the various realms to bring back our people who scattered. Only then will we accept new disciples," said Jiang Chengzi. There were still many disciples of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven who were far away. Many of those who were below the Renhuang level did not have the power to cross through realms.
"In realms like the Nine Supreme Realms, the Renhuangs will have limited influence. It might be hard for them to find people," said Ye Futian.
"So the two of us are planning to go ourselves," said Jiang Chengzi with a smile. He and Hua Jiangshan would go as well.
Ye Futian smiled and nodded. The two of them would obviously not abandon the disciples of the Celestial Gate.
"So, what will happen here?"
"Is Gu Dongliu not here?" asked Jiang Chengzi with a smile. "We have discussed this. In the future, the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven will not have several clan lords. All of the clans power will rest with the elders and one single clan lord. This will reduce the amount of intrigue."
Ye Futian looked at Jiang Chengzi in surprise. It seemed that he had guessed something.
"Are you planning"
Jiang Chengzi nodded and said, "Dongliu, I give you the position of clan lord of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven."
A look of surprise came over Gu Donglius face. He looked at Jiang Chengzi and Hua Jiangshan and said, "I am not worthy."
Both in terms of experience and level, he could not contribute enough to the Celestial Gate.
"In the past, your grandfather built the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven with his own hands. If it werent for him, we would never have experienced our period of prosperity. Although there were three great clans then, everyone in the Heavenly Mandate Realm knew that your grandfather was the emblem of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven. In the end, he sacrificed the Gu bloodline for the Celestial Gate to protect it. At that time, we also did some things we did not wish to. Now, you have inherited everything from your grandfather. There is no question that we should give the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven to you. You are worthy of it."
In the past, the three great clans had come together, sacrificing the Gu clan and even taking action against them. Although it had been many years ago, it still weighed upon them. Gu Tianxing had been the one to come up with it, but it still made them uneasy.
Gu Dongliu wanted to say something, but Hua Jiangshan smiled and said, "For many years, I have been trapped at the eighth tier of the Divine Wheel. You have allowed me to put aside some things and find peace. Perhaps I will find a chance to advance to the next level. You young folks should worry about the affairs of the Celestial Gate."
Now that the other two had said these things, there was nothing more that Gu Dongliu could say. He was silent for a moment, then nodded and said, "Alright."
He was the last member of the Gu bloodline.
He would inherit his grandfathers will and lead the Celestial Gate forward.
"in that case, I can relax," said Jiang Chengzi with a smile. Given Gu Donglius close relationship with Ye Futian, not to mention his incredible talent, the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven would surely continue to advance. As for whether or not they would remain clan lords, that was not important.
"Futian, when are you planning to build the academy?" asked Jiang Chengzi.
"Once the Celestial Gate has stabilized, " said Ye Futian. "Before that, there is somewhere I need to go."
"Where?" asked Jiang Chengzi.
"Brahmas Pure Sky," answered Ye Futian.
"I will go with you," said Jiang Chengzi. Ye Futian did not refuse. At the moment, many people were watching him.
Several days later, the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven was finished rebuilding. There were celebrations throughout the city.
Later, the two great clan lords Jiang Chengzi and Hua Jiangshan announced that from then on, there would only be one clan lord: Gu Dongliu.
This news shook the Celestial City.
On that day, Gu Dongliu of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven appeared before the people of the world for the first time in his capacity as clan lord. He stood on the steps, a halo of divine light around him and marvelous illusions in the air. The Great Path descended from the heavens, shocking everyone.
This was the first time they had seen someone with such a brilliant Wheel of the Great Path. He was heroic and noble, and those who had any objections to him being named clan lord could not say anything. He would surely lead the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven into a new era of prosperity.
On that day, almost all the forces of the Heavenly Mandate Realm were there for the celebration. But the Empress of Brahmas Pure Sky was not there.
Ye Futian watched everything quietly from the side, a little bit of regret in his heart.
Third sister was not seeing this scene.
The other disciple of the Cottage was not there.
The next day, Ye Futian and Jiang Chengzi left.
Xia Qingyuan stood in the air high above the Celestial Gate, watching their retreating figures.
All of the Goddesses of Brahmas Pure Sky were there, standing in front of the Empress, bringing news.
Gu Dongliu had become the clan lord of the Celestial Gate of Vast Heaven.
Everything that had happened in the Heavenly Mandate Realm recently was like a dream. It did not seem real.
The whole Heavenly Mandate Realm had turned on its head.
The Empress had a calm expression on her face. She asked the goddesses to leave, then sat there alone. She could not quiet her mind.
At that moment, the hair on the back of her neck stood up. She looked off into the distance. She seemed to be able to sense something.
Two figures appeared below Brahmas Pure Sky.
"Greetings, Empress. It is I, Ye Futian," came a voice that rang through Brahmas Pure Sky. Everyones hearts began to beat faster.
There could be no other reason. These days, wherever Ye Futian went
