Ye Futian had arrived. A line of swordsmen descended beside him. It was Ye Wuchen's group.
"You are here." Ye Futian smiled at Ye Wuchen.
Ye Wuchen nodded slightly with a comparatively serious look. He looked at the palace behind, having no idea about how his story would end. What if he couldn't make it?
The strong cultivators of the Qin Dynasty in front of them stopped and turned to Ye Futian's group, seeming to wait for them. Ye Futian and Ye Wuchen's eyes fell upon one among this group. It was a very handsome guy they had never met before. He must be the groom in this proposalQin Yuan, the youngest son of Emperor Qin. Qin Yuan was as young as little princess Qin Mengruo and Qin Li, the grandson of Emperor Qin.
While observing Ye Futian and Ye Wuchen, Qin Yuan smiled at Ye Futian and said, "Nice to meet you. I am Qin Yuan. I heard your name a lot, Ye Futian."
"Really?" Ye Futian smiled too and said, "But I don't know you."
A few days ago, the two had had a fierce conversation in the air. Now Qin Yuan could still smile and greet Ye Futian in a typical Qin Dynasty style. He was really hypocritical. In all of Eastern Barren Territory, the Qin Dynasty was the one that wanted to eliminate the Cottage the most.
"Never mind, we know each other now. We can communicate more." Qin Yuan still smiled.
"I am not interested in that." Ye Futian moved forward.
Seeing Ye Futian's group walking away, Qin Yuan smiled. Was that the Cottage style?
Qin Li's eyes flickered. It would not be so easy for Ye Futian to stop this marriage.
"Let's go." The people of the Qin Dynasty moved forward too. The guards guarding the palace gate backed aside, letting them in. All forces were guided forward in the mighty palace. Coming to the golden stairs before the imperial palace, they walked up step by step and saw a golden dragon-shape path leading to the throne. Many people were waiting there. They were all the Liu Kingdom's important men. It was the Qin Dynasty's proposal day. The Liu Kingdom invited all forces to be the guests. The Liu Kingdom's nobilities would naturally attend.
There was a slope in the front decorated with a painting of a dancing golden dragon in the center. Besides the slope were stairs leading to the golden throne above. Obviously, this was where Emperor Liu was going to sit later. He was not here at this time.
Liu Kingdom's nobilities all looked at the coming guests. Except for those guards, most were famous among the young generation. They discussed with smiles.
"It is good to see so many young talents of the Eastern Barren Territory," a magnate said and smiled.
"Those young talents here must be the future of the Eastern Barren Territory."
They chatted casually while observing. The most eye-catching people should be Qin Yuan's group. They were very outstanding, including Qin Yuan, Qin Li, Qin Mengruo, Qian Shanmu, as well as Chu Yaoyao. Everyone in this group could be seen as a top talent among the young generation.
Some people were looking at Ye Futian's group, guessing which force they came from. Soon, they roughly knew the answer by judging their appearances and auras.
Some eyes fell upon Ye Futian. They knew who he was. Beside this handsome and decorous youth was another bulky man. Obviously, it could only be Ye Futian and Yu Sheng.
The one-arm swordsman by his side should be Ye Wuchen from the seventh summit of the Fuyun Sword Clan. The woman with silver hair and eyes must be the one from Ancient Loulan who was sent to the Cottage.
Ancient Loulan showed their ambition in occupying a place in the Eastern Barren Territory too. Ye Futian was their bet in this gamble.
At this moment, Qin Yuan came up to bowed toward those nobilities in a very humble manner. Many of the noble elders all responded with smiles and praised the humbleness of the Qin Dynasty's prince.
"If the Qin Dynasty's prince and our princess are going to marry each other, it will be a very romantic story," said someone. People pretended not to hear this man's public approval of the marriage. They kept chatting and laughing.
Ye Futian and Ye Wuchen looked at those people with indifference. It seemed that Qin Yuan's effort in visiting around these days helped him a lot. No one knew what the conversations between Qin Yuan and those noble men were about, but it seemed that they were getting along very well with each other. As for Ye Wuchen, he was neither good at social kind of things, nor was he as hypocritical as the Qin Dynasty.
Qin Li's group stood near Ye Futian. Qin Li looked at him and smiled. "Brother Ye, I heard that you have some complaints about our proposal. Why did you defame us?"
"Defame?" Ye Futian stared at Qin Li. He did say that the Qin Dynasty was vile but was that defamation?
Qin Li knew what Ye Futian meant. He kept smiling and said, "The Cottage and the Qin Dynasty are at odds, so I understand your complaint. Brother Ye, I heard that you and Princess Chenyu are good friends. My uncle is here for the proposal. Shouldn't you be happy for her?"
"Yes, we are good friends. That's why I won't let her marry a hypocrite," Ye Futian responded coldly. "You played the mutual affection thing. It's your business, but don't play that trick on others. By the way, don't call me 'Brother Ye'. I am not your brother." Obviously, he was alluding to Qin Li's affair with Chu Yaoyao.
Chu Yaoyao glanced at Ye Futian with her beautiful eyes. She was still mild and charming.
Qin Li sneered. "Let's wait and see. I am sure Emperor Liu won't refuse such a good proposal."
"Lord Ye." At this moment, someone laughed charmingly. Ye Futian turned around and saw the Witch Gu Biyue and her brother Gu Zhiqiu coming together with some strong cultivators from the Witch Clan.
"Long time no see. Lord Ye has another beauty around." Gu Biyue looked at Loulan Xue with a smile. She had met Loulan Xue in the Ancient Barren World.
"Do you want to join us?" Ye Futian laughed.
"I'd like to, but my brother won't allow me. I'll have to wait for another chance to serve you." Gu Biyue smirked at Gu Zhiqiu behind her. Gu Zhiqiu and Ye Futian glanced at each other quickly and looked away.
Ye Futian didn't care about Gu Zhiqiu's warning. Gu Zhiqiu had done nothing to him either.
Besides the Witch Clan, the Ji Family, Royal Xuan Temple, and Fuyun Sword Clan all came. Many other forces could be seen here too, except the most distant Sword Saint Mountain and the Qianqiu Temple. As for the Moon Clan, only Chu Yaoyao came.
The Royal Xuan Temple and Fuyun Sword Clan were the closest to the Qin Dynasty.
At this time, a dignified figure appeared above the slope, followed by Liu Feiyang and Liu Chenyu. Looking at the crowd, Liu Chenyu saw Ye Futian and Ye Wuchen. Her beautiful dark eyes were seemly full of vexation.
"Your Majesty." All the noble men bowed.
Qin Yuan's group walked forward and bowed. "Your Majesty, we are Qin Yuan, Qin Li and Qing Mengruo from the Qin Dynasty."
"Your Majesty, I am Qian Shanmu from the Donghua Clan."
People constantly bowed and introduced themselves; Ye Futian did too. He noticed that when bowed, Chu Yaoyao introduced herself directly without mentioning the Moon Clan.
"You are all guests from afar. Thank you for coming," Emperor Liu said with a smile, looking at the people.
Qin Yuan took a step forward and bowed again with a smile. He raised his head and showed his handsome face to Emperor Liu. Before Qin Yuan could say anything, a figure stepped forward, stopped before him, and said to Emperor Liu, "Your Majesty, I am Ye Wuchen from the seventh summit of the Fuyun Sword Clan. I've always had a strong admiration for Liu Chenyu, the princess. Today, I come to the Liu Kingdom to ask for your permission for our marriage."
Qin Yuan was supposed to say the same thing but he had to keep silent now. He raised his head and looked at Ye Wuchen before him. How could Ye Wuchen make the first proposal?
People fell silent. Liu Chenyu stared at that one-armed figure in white standing straight proudly below the stairs. His tone was so determined. Her eyes turned a little red and she smiled lightly. Her feelings were obvious to all. He came in such a direct way. She saw his backbone. How many people in the Eastern Barren Territory dared to contend with the Qin Dynasty? She knew what kind of pressure Ye Wuchen was facing.
Emperor Liu was looking at Ye Wuchen too. He glanced at Liu Chenyu and immediately figured out that it was him.
Ye Wuchen was wearing all white. One of his sleeves hung down loosely; clearly, he had only one arm. But when he made the proposal, his eyes were determined and his body stood straight, proud as a sword.
His arm had been chopped off by Li Daoyun, but Li Daoyun had been killed by his sword. The emperor appreciated Ye Wuchen's spirit a lot. If it was in the past, he would have agreed to his proposal, but Ye Wuchen's rival was Qin Yuan, the Qin Dynasty.
"Ye Wuchen, is this deliberate?" Qin Li suddenly questioned. The silence was disturbed. He said coldly, "We announced today's proposal many days ago. And now, what are you doing? What do you mean?"
Qin Yuan bowed toward the emperor too and said, "Your Majesty, I am Qin Yuan. I have admired Princess Chenyu for a long time. Today, I come to ask your permission for our marriage."
"What lies!" Ye Futian said coldly. "How many times have you met Chenyu? How many conversations have you had with her? Admired her for a long time? How? Ye Wuchen and I knew Chenyu long ago. We were always together when we were in Chaoge City. Don't tell me that the Qin Dynasty knows nothing about the affection between Ye Wuchen and Liu Chenyu. Naturally, we come to propose. Who's the one making trouble now?"
Ye Futian continued, "I heard that the Qin Dynasty's little prince, Qin Yuan, is very noble. A noble gentleman will not do such a lowly thing like robbing other's love. Am I right?" It was not appropriate for Ye Wuchen to say this so Ye Futian would say it for him!
