Ye Futian nodded with a smile. He heard Xiao Muyu say, "To congratulate the creation of the Heavenly Mandate Academy, I, representing the Xiao clan, am giving you 3000 ancient books, 100 Renhuang-level ritual implements, 1000 saint-level ritual implements, and five of the ancient relics the Xiao clan had obtained in the past. As for the matters regarding the guest minister, elder, and the disciples that would come to learn, Ill discuss it with you later."
"Thank you for the Xiao clans gifts, Muyu. Its been hard on you," Ye Futian nodded and said.
"The Clan of the Seven Slayers of the Ziwei Realm is here to extend our congratulations." Another voice rang out at this moment. The powerful fighters from the Clan of the Seven Slayers descended from the sky.
"The Yuanyang clan of the Central Emperor Realm is here to extend our congratulations." The Yuanyang clan had also arrived. Yuan Hong personally led the group here. Ye Futian had hinted at him when the Xiao clan was conferring a goddess back then. Now that the Heavenly Mandate Academy had been set up, they were deliberating about whether to join the academy or not.
"The Shangxiao Divine Palace of the Higher Heavens Realm is here to extend our congratulations." Another batch of powerful fighters arrived. Several people had looks of shock. The Higher Heavens Realm neighbored the Heavenly Mandate Realm. The Shangxiao Divine Palace was a sacred place of cultivation in the Higher Heavens Realm and had remarkable status. They had also come today.
"The Youyue Divine Palace of the Shadow Realm is here to extend our congratulations." A crisp voice rang out. A group of figures appeared in the air. There were not many people in the group, and their faction seemed much weaker than the rest of the powerhouses. The person in front was unbelievably charismatic. Her aura did not pale in comparison to the Goddess of the Xiao clan, Xiao Muyu. She might even have the upper hand in terms of appearance. She looked like a goddess from the Youyue Divine Palace.
The Goddess of the Youyue Divine Palace, Chang Xi, had come to witness the spectacle. She did not expect that many factions to pay Ye Futian their respects. Since that was the case, she also stepped forward to congratulate Ye Futian.
"Thank you, Goddess Chang Xi." Ye Futian nodded with a smile. At this moment, several powerful fighters were standing in the air in front of the Heavenly Mandate Academy. It was quite a spectacular scene.
Beneath them, the Heavenly Mandate City was engulfed with commotion as they looked up at the figures.
The Heavenly Mandate Academy was created today. It was a festive occasion of an unparalleled scale. Factions from all over the nine realms had come to congratulate Ye Futian. Furthermore, these factions were all powerhouses. How glorious was this scene?
Was this the influence that the white-haired teen had?
In reality, when Ye Futian brought along the powerful fighters to extinguish the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty and the Violet Heavenly Palace, countless people in the Heavenly Mandate Realm could not understand why these powerhouses would lend him a helping hand. However, they only realized when they saw the spectacular scene before their eyes that Ye Futians influence outside the nine realms had already grown larger than his influence in the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
What exactly did Ye Futian do when the Gods Relic opened last year?
"Lets enter the academy," Ye Futian said. The people nodded and stepped forward. All of them entered the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
Ye Futian looked at the crowd. He had wanted to say something when he suddenly saw a radiant ray of golden divine light coming from the horizon. The light let out an immense roar.
Lord Taixuan knitted his brows and raised his hand toward the golden divine light. In that instant, a giant palm appeared in the air and pushed directly toward the golden divine light.
A loud noise was heard. The golden divine light scattered. The giant palm was also shattered. However, even so, a ray of golden light still managed to pierce through the air and drill itself into the ground of the Heavenly Mandate Academy. A loud sound accompanied the impact. A hole appeared within the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
"Who is it?" Several people let out an unusual look. Who would dare to mess up this festive occasion?
Who would dare to be this insolent?
Rays of golden divine light covered the sky. Countless people looked up at the sky and felt their hearts shake. They saw that a golden throne had appeared in the sky. A figure was sitting on the throne and looking down at everyone. The figure looked like an almighty deity.
Many figures appeared behind him. All of the figures were clad in golden armor and looked just like deities.
"The Golden Divine Nation of the Higher Heaven Realm!" many people exclaimed. The animosity between Ye Futian and the Golden Divine Nation was no longer a secret. Powerful fighters from the Golden Divine Nation had also appeared when Ye Futian and his group were attacking the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty. They had wanted to kill Ye Futian. However, they were unable to succeed as the forces Ye Futian had gathered to attack the Heavenly Mandate Dynasty were too strong.
Now that the Heavenly Mandate Academy was created, the king of the Divine Nation had come personally. He was a true powerhouse, a figure which stood at the very top.
He still acted in such an arrogant manner even though many factions had come to congratulate Ye Futian today. He sat alone on the throne in the sky. Other than Lord Taixuan, no one who came today could hold their own against the king of the Golden Divine Nation.
The king of the Golden Divine Nation sat silently on the throne. He had a piercing gaze as he scanned through the crowd at the Heavenly Mandate Academy. He did not speak, but he had terrifying authority just by sitting there.
Presently, everyone in the Nine Supreme Imperial Realms knew about the animosity between Ye Futian and the Golden Divine Nation. Two of the kings sons had died by Ye Futians hands. Now that Ye Futian was trying to set up a faction in the Heavenly Mandate Realm, was he trying to retaliate against the Golden Divine Nation in the future?
These factions who were joining the Heavenly Mandate Academy today seemed to not fear the king at all.
Today, the king displayed an attitude just by sitting there.
If he did not fear the Empty Imperial Palace, the king would have attacked Ye Futian directly.
Ye Futians gaze swept toward the figure in the air. He had a cold gaze. The king of the Golden Divine Nation was posing a threat by sitting there. Ye Futian had no way to deal with him.
Lord Taixuan also glanced at the other party. However, the other party did not directly cause trouble. He merely sat in the sky above the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
"Great Elder, now that you left the Sky River Temple, do you intend on setting up a faction of your own?" Another voice spread toward them. A group of spirited fighters appeared in the air. Their divine aura enveloped the air. It was incredibly terrifying.
Who are these people?" many people from the Heavenly Mandate Realm asked.
"Fighters from the Shen clan of the Central Emperor Realm," someone said. It caused the hearts of countless people to tremble.
They naturally had heard the name of the Shen clan. They were extremely overbearing. They were a superpower that stood at the top of the Nine Supreme Imperial Realms.
It looked like, despite Ye Futians massive influence, he also had a considerable number of enemies. This Golden Divine Nation and the Shen clan were extremely unhappy about the creation of the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
Of course, this unhappiness was also a form of fear.
In the past, not many people would think much about Ye Futian training in Shentian Academy to avoid trouble. They allowed him to train there. However, no one expected him to engage in such terrifying actions after he left Shentian Academy. He had become the overlord of the Heavenly Mandate Realm.
The three greatest factions of the Heavenly Mandate Realm had been exterminated because of him. Even though the top-notch factions like the Golden Divine Nation and the Shen clan did not care about that, it did come across as a bad omen. The creation of the Heavenly Mandate Academy directly linked many influential factions together. It felt faintly like an alliance. This, to them, was clearly a bad thing.
Especially when the Sky River Great Elder was the dean of the Heavenly Mandate Academy. What would the Shen clan think about that?
If the Heavenly Mandate Academy was to become sufficiently strong, would the Sky River Great Elder not make use of the might of the Heavenly Mandate Academy to attack the Shen clan?
This posed a direct threat to the Shen clan.
Ye Futian had finally been regarded heavily by the Shen clan.
The more festive the occasion was today, the worse matters looked to the Shen clan.
"The saga back then had passed. I came to the Heavenly Mandate Academy today to help my disciple spread his path," the Sky River Great Elder looked up at the powerful fighters of the Shen clan and said. They had come as he expected.
The Shen clan had not truly forgiven him.
"Great Elder, you should return to the Tianhe Realm. This place does not suit you," a powerful fighter from the Shen clan said. His tone was calm and collected, but it felt exceptionally forceful. He wanted the Sky River Great Elder to leave. He did not allow him to take up the role of dean of the Heavenly Mandate Academy.
They could let the Sky River Great Elder off if he stayed silently at the Tianhe Realm. However, they would not allow him to set up another faction.
Furthermore, the magnificent parade of todays Heavenly Mandate Academy would pose a direct threat to the Shen clan in the future.
Ye Futian was difficult to deal with. However, they would never allow the Sky River Great Elder to stay here.
"Is the Shen clan trying to control his freedom?" Lord Taixuan had a cold tone. He had not participated in the saga back then, nor could he have helped. Otherwise, he would also be implicated in the crisis. Today, the Shen clan was still being that overbearing.
"Yes," the person standing in front of the Shen clans group replied. He looked toward Lord Taixuan and said, "Lord, this is a matter between the Shen clan and the Sky River Great Elder. We know that he is your old friend and we do respect you. However, you shouldnt interfere in this matter."
Lord Taixuan knitted his brows slightly. The Shen clan was as overbearing as always. However, the strength of the Shen clan was real. Even he, as he was today, could not fight against them directly. Furthermore, even if he disregarded the Shen clan, the king of the Golden Divine Nation, who was sitting on the throne in the sky, was also itching for a fight.
If they were to erupt into conflict with the Shen clan, the Golden Divine Nation would not be polite and would join the battle.
The king of the Golden Divine Nation had an extremely piercing gaze. He had expected the Shen clan to come. That was why he personally made a trip here. This was a threat. He wanted to see how confident the alliance of the Heavenly Mandate Academy was.
Many top-notch factions had stepped forward to congratulate Ye Futian and would send disciples into the Heavenly Mandate Academy to train. It looked like they were about to form an alliance. However, the king wanted to see how stable the alliance would be.
Could they step forward to resist the overbearing Shen clan for this matter?
In actuality, several top-notch factions in the crowd had animosity with Ye Futian. For example, the Martial God Clan from the Central Emperor Realm, the Celestial Worthy Temple, as well as the Sky Reaching School. However, they had only come to witness the fanfare. Their animosity with Ye Futian was not deep, and they did not need to step out. With the Shen clan around, all they had to do was witness the spectacle.
The atmosphere quickly became suppressed. The vast space felt a little silent. There was no longer the bustle of the past. However, several people were still silently asking about the situation. They had not fully understood the animosity between these factions.
A powerful member from the Xiao clan took a step forward. He had not spoken a word when a powerful fighter from the Shen clan interrupted him, "Ill repeat myself. This is a matter between the Shen clan and the Sky River Great Elder. It has nothing to do with the other factions. It is best that the rest of the people do not interfere!"
They only targeted the Sky River Great Elder. However, in actuality, they were instilling fear within the Heavenly Mandate Academy!
