Days passed by one after another. Over these days, the Imperial Palace of the Cangye Kingdom had been very lively and occasionally, the emperors in the Hundred Lands would come to pay a visit.
The six kingdoms had announced that they would submit and the formation of the Cangye Dynasty was already inevitable. Moreover, nobody dared to team up and deal with the Cangye Kingdom: Ye Futian, Yu Sheng and the other two were already disciples of the top forces in the Eastern Barren Territory at the moment. Under this general trend, the rise of the Cangye Kingdom was already unstoppable and everyone could only adapt to the trend.
Before anyone realized it, the end of the 10001st year of the Divine Prefecture Calendar had approached and the year was almost over.
In the last night of the year, the Imperial Palace of the Cangye Kingdom was ablaze with lights. An annual banquet had been arranged in the Emperor's Palace.
Emperor Ye, the queen, the princes, and princesses, as well as Ye Futian and his team, Liu Feiyang and Liu Chenyu, were all present, making the place seem particularly lively.
"Come, let us drink together." At the moment, Emperor Ye proposed a toast. Everyone else smiled and raised their glasses, after which they drank the alcohol in their glasses together.
"I do not know why but I always feel that many things have happened this year. It's almost like many years have passed and the year seems pretty long," Emperor Ye smiled as he said. "Maybe it's because I am getting old and hence sentimental."
"I feel the same as well," Hua Fengliu nodded and said. "Although I didn't do much this year, I seem to have gone through a lot."
"Master, you have recovered from your injury, and also married Aunt Tang. How can you say that you have not done much," Ye Futian chipped in as he smiled.
"Right. Mainly, I have seen you undergo a lot." Hua Fengliu sighed.
"Maybe that's true." Ye Futian smiled. Indeed, he had such a feeling.
In the year, he had experienced many major events. He escaped from the Donghai City to the Cangye Kingdom, participated in the Fenghua Banquet and then visited the Tingfeng Banquet. Next, Luo Junlin entered the Royal Xuan Temple and the Ancient Barren World opened. He fought in the Ancient Barren World and finally returned.
Everything had happened in merely one year. He felt like he had experienced too much.
"The things in the world are really unpredictable," Yi Xiang also said emotionally. "Just before the end of last year, I was still planning to send Ye Futian, Yu Sheng and the rest to the Nandou Nation Imperial City to take part in the Tingfeng Banquet once the year passed. However, everything changed after that. Luckily, it's all over now. Futian has not let us down."
Hua Fengliu nodded. Near the end of the previous year, they were caught in a disaster and were almost doomed eternally.
"It's so rare to get a compliment from you," Ye Futian said, smiling. It was indeed not easy to receive praise from Yi Xiang.
"Don't be complacent. Emperor Luo is still alive, and Luo Junlin will also continue to cultivate in the Royal Xuan Temple. It's not all over yet. Don't forget what Elder Qin had done for you. You have to get revenge yourself in the future," Yi Xiang said suddenly with a serious tone. He had to give Ye Futian a heavy blow as young people tend to get complacent easily. He clearly knew that Ye Futian's talents were unparalleled, but precisely because he was so gifted, he must not be impetuous.
Ye Futian would always need a strong motivation to work.
"I understand." Ye Futian nodded in a serious manner. Thinking about his grandmaster, his happy demeanor also disappeared.
Emperor Luo, Minister Hua, the Nandou Clan and the Donghai Academy were all responsible for killing his grandmaster. He had not taken his revenge yet but would remember them for the moment.
The news about the Cangye Kingdom would probably be passed to the Donghai City. I wonder how the "important people" in the Nandou Clan and the Donghai Academy will feel now? Can they still feel as superior as they have in the past?
"Father, let's not talk about this today," Yi Qingxuan said.
"Alright, let's not." Yi Xiang nodded. "How about we talk about you and Yu Sheng."
"What nonsense are you talking about." Yi Qingxuan blushed slightly. Yi Xiang started to laugh immediately.
"Time really passes fast. In the blink of an eye, you are already eighteen." Smiling, Hua Fengliu looked at the young man in front of him. He could still vividly recall the events in the Qingzhou Academy in those days. In such a short period of time, they had already grown up.
An 18-year-old is no longer considered a juvenile. They would embark on a whole new part of their lives.
"I'm already 18. Father-in-law, when can I marry Jieyu?" Ye Futian said, smiling.
Everyone looked at him with a laugh. Nandou Wenyin said softly, "At that time, in the Nandou Clan, I have promised to betroth her to you. She's already yours, so why the hurry?"
"Err..." Ye Futian blinked. Then smiling, he looked at Hua Jieyu and nodded in a serious manner. "Masteress, you are right."
"Mother." Seeing Ye Futian's sly smile, Hua Jieyu looked at her mother uncontrollably. Which mother would betray her daughter like this?
Everyone at the banquet stared at Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu. The 18-year-old Ye Futian was already extraordinarily handsome and looked distinguished and suave, while Hua Jieyu was slim and graceful. As compared to the immature her in the city of Qingzhou when she was fifteen or sixteen, the 18-year-old Hua Jieyu was already a disastrously charming lady. She had perfectly inherited the looks of Hua Fengliu and Nandou Wenyin, and her body was overflowing with the purity and beauty of youth.
The scene of the two sitting together was like a drawing presented in front of everyone. They all blessed the two silently and hoped that the two could remain so throughout their lives.
The annual banquet ended in warmth and harmony. Ye Futian and the other young people planned to go out for a walk. The year-end Cangye Kingdom Imperial City was extremely bustling and even more lively than the city of Qingzhou they had been to.
"Danchen, Lingxi, where shall we go and play?" Ye Futian asked Ye Danchen and the rest as they walked along the bustling streets of the Cangye City.
"Do you want to take a tour around the lake?" Ye Lingxi smiled and asked back.
"Okay." Ye Futian nodded.
"I will bring you to the Cangye Lake." Ye Lingxi smiled and then led the way. After a while, they arrived in front of the Cangye Lake.
Under the night sky, the lights were luminous and the fireworks brilliant. Cruise ships sailed in the lake in an endless stream, making the scene extremely magnificent.
"Should I go and find a cruise ship?" Ye Danchen asked.
"You can go and help them find one. I want to appreciate the lake scenery with Jieyu here," Ye Futian said as he smiled.
"You want to enjoy each other's company." Liu Feiyang smiled. "Seems like I am somewhat unnecessary here. Wuchen, help me to take care of Chenyu. I will go back first." After speaking, he actually turned around and really left.
"Then you just play here. I will take a walk around with Lingxi." Ye Danchen looked at Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu with a smile on his face. Then, the two left the place together.
"We will take a tour around the lake." Yi Qingxuan pulled Yu Sheng along and left.
Ye Futian looked at Ye Wuchen and Liu Chenyu with a smile. He just kept staring at the two in silence.
"We will just take a walk around?" Liu Chenyu opened her eyes wide at Ye Futian and then spoke to Ye Wuchen.
"Alright." Ye Wuchen nodded and the two also left.
Only Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu were left beside the Cangye Lake. Of course, there were many visitors around them. Occasionally, some people would stare at the two, as the qualities and looks of the two were indeed extraordinary.
There were also a few people who could recognize Ye Futian, which caused them to be shocked. This is the person who changed the situation of the Hundred Lands and gathered the people from all the top forces in the Eastern Barren Territory.
"Why do I feel that you have a conspiracy?" Hua Jieyu stared at Ye Futian.
"Isn't this scene familiar?" Ye Futian said, smiling.
"Yeah." Hua Jieyu nodded. During that time in the city of Qingzhou, the scene was somewhat similar. It was just that the Cangye Kingdom was even more lively.
Ye Futian extended his arm and grabbed Hua Jieyu's hand. Gazing at the scenery in front, he smiled brightly. "I miss it so much. Do you want to reveal your feelings to me again?"
Hua Jieyu blinked. Then, she blushed slightly and wanted to withdraw her hand from Ye Futian.
Ye Futian did not let her go. He grabbed her hand firmly and turned his head, looking at the beautiful face in front.
Hua Jieyu opened her eyes wide at him in anger, after which she turned her head away and gave a soft humph. Her face was, however, filled with shyness. The blush on her face was very captivating.
Ye Futian was flirting with her on purpose.
That time at the Qingzhou Lake, she held Ye Futian's hand actively and confirmed her love relationship with him.
"Why is my fox always so attractive? Whenever I see you, my heartbeat will accelerate uncontrollably," Ye Futian said in a gentle voice. Hua Jieyu stared at him without blinking as her face turned even redder. What's wrong with this guy today?
"Did you do something bad?" Hua Jieyu blinked and asked in a suspicious tone.
Ye Futian's face turned black and he said, "What bad things can I do?"
"In the Eastern Barren Territory when I am not beside you, do you plan to do bad things?" Hua Jieyu asked as she smiled.
"You are the only one in my eyes," Ye Futian said in all seriousness.
"Humph." Hua Jieyu gave a lovable humph and turned her head away, but some happiness appeared in her eyes and her heart was filled with sweetness. Even if Ye Futian was only speaking honeyed words, she would still be willing to be deceived.
"Close your eyes," Ye Futian said again. Hua Jieyu looked at him and said in a shy tone, "What do you want?"
Ye Futian extended his hands and embraced her slim waist gently while his head moved closer to her gradually.
Hua Jieyu's heart pulsed and a charming blush appeared on her face. She closed her eyes slowly and raised her head slightly. The lights shone upon her gorgeous face and even time itself seemed to be stunned.
Ye Futian's heart raced. Hugging Hua Jieyu in his arms, he kissed on her rosy lips. Even time seemed to have stopped at the moment.
At this instant, above the Cangye Lake, countless fireworks ascended into the air and bloomed in the sky.
Everyone lifted their heads and stared into the sky, gazing at the gorgeously blooming fireworks which filled the entire sky, producing a magnificent sight.
"So beautiful!" Countless people exclaimed as they asked themselves why the blooming of the fireworks was so neat and brilliant.
On a small road beside the lake, Liu Chenyu and Ye Wuchen were strolling. Suddenly, they raised their heads to look at the sky and their footsteps stopped uncontrollably.
"So nice," Liu Chenyu muttered to herself. Even her heart trembled because of this.
Ye Wuchen looked at the fireworks, and then lowered his head to gaze at Liu Chenyu. Under the fireworks, Liu Chenyu was actually so charming at the moment.
Having felt something, Liu Chenyu withdrew her gaze and realized that Ye Wuchen was looking at her. Her heartbeat actually started to accelerate helplessly.
In the Cangye Lake, Yu Sheng and Yi Qingxuan who were on a cruise ship raised their heads to look at the dazzling fireworks in the sky. Yi Qingxuan leaned into Yu Sheng's arms gently and wished that time could remain at this instant forever.
Hua Jieyu opened her eyes slowly, and Ye Futian was still kissing her lips. The stunning fireworks all over the sky seemed to have bloomed just for her.
In this situation, she actually closed her eyes once again. A charmingly bright smile appeared on her face.
Time seemed to have paused.
The scene turned into eternity at the moment!
