The news that Starry School was going to bestow someone the title of the Son, and hold a ceremony to give him the holy crown and robe, spread throughout the Divine Sky City in a very short period of time.
This major city in the Eastern Region of the Barren State was totally stirred up by the news as it was considered as a very important event. At the moment, Starry Sage had ordered the news to be released to the whole city himself and invited everyone to observe the ceremony. Indeed, the coronation this time had a special meaning and Starry Sage had placed much emphasis on it.
Even the assessment day of the Top Three Schools or the opening of the martial arts battlefield did not create such a huge disturbance.
Now, almost everyone in the city was talking about this.
Very soon, many rumors and guesses swept through the entire city. Everyone was wondering who the Son would be. Was the person in the Noble Plane or Arcana Plane? Was the person going to be Long Mu, Long Yitian’s descendant?
Some people even made wild guesses about whether this was related to the collapse of the martial arts battlefield. The mysterious cultivator was still yet to be found, so it was possible that he was actually a disciple of Starry School whom the college nurtured secretly. Only the important people of the school knew his real identity. At the moment, he was ready to appear as the Son. Such guesses were widely accepted; many people thought that it was indeed very plausible.
The only people who knew some inside story were from the major clans which could influence Starry School. Nevertheless, only a handful from the Dragon Clan and Gu Clan knew the details. Before it was properly announced, they did not spread the message at all.
Jin Clan had also guessed certain things, but they were unsure yet. They could only make some conjectures based on the subtle clues available. However, in any case, the people from Jin Clan understood that it was definitely not a good thing for them, because Starry School was hiding the truth from them. This would cause them to be very passive.
In Celestial Pavilion, the people who came to eat in the Fairy Pool were also discussing this. Despite this, all these were unrelated to Ye Futian who was still busy cultivating. As long as he was free, he would try his best to become stronger.
Chief Chen announced to the whole city that he was going to be crowned. It was glory and recognition for him, but at the same time also a form of pressure. Chief Chen pushed him directly in front of the public. If he wished to wear the holy crown, he would need to withstand its weight.
Ye Futian urgently wanted himself to become stronger. He was confident that he could easily defeat those in his generation, but people in this era would include more than merely those whose ages were similar to him. In fact, many nobles could also be considered as being in the same generation as him. Ye Futian needed to become stronger in order to face all these.
The knowledge contained in the three beams of divine light, as well as the sage martial arts fate, were sufficient for him to learn from for a long time. He was still becoming stronger by the day.
Three days passed by in the blink of an eye. It was finally the day of the Coronation Ceremony of Starry School. Divine Sky City almost had an earthquake as countless people rushed out of their places and headed towards the same place. They wanted to see who exactly could enjoy such a glory.
In Celestial Pavilion, Shen Yu came to the courtyard where Ye Futian was at. Ye Futian had called her here, but when he saw her, he realized that something was wrong, as if she wanted to say some words but did not dare to.
Noticing Shen Yu’s unnatural expression, Ye Futian said, “If you want to say anything, just say it.”
“I want to go Starry School to observe the ceremony” Shen Yu peeked at Ye Futian.
“Err” Ye Futian blinked his eyes.
Seeing Ye Futian’s reaction, Shen Yu said, “I have already arranged everything in Celestial Pavilion. Mr. Ye, if you have anything else for me to do, can you tell me quickly please?”
“Nothing. I just wanted to tell you that if I am not in Celestial Pavilion in the future, you can temporarily handle everything. The people from the Dragon Clan will help you as well,” Ye Futian said, smiling. “Just go.”
“Yes.” Shen Yu was somewhat inattentive. After Ye Futian asked her to leave, she immediately trotted away.
“Do you have to be in such a hurry?” Ye Futian asked, looking at Shen Yu’s back.
“Starry School will probably be jam-packed today. You can go and watch the ceremony as well!” After Shen Yu said so, she left the courtyard. Ye Futian smiled and shook his head. “It’s indeed about time for me to leave.”
“Let’s go,” Ye Futian said, turning around. His friends all nodded, after which they walked onto the back of the Black Wind Condor. The condor opened its wings and flapped them fiercely. Immediately, it charged up into the clouds and then flew towards Starry School.
At the moment, Starry School was filled to the gates and even a drop of water could not leak through. Its surrounding was also totally packed, and there were countless people both on the ground and in the sky. It had been a long time since something like this occurred in Divine Sky City. Everyone wanted to see for themselves the Coronation Ceremony and also who the Son was.
Suddenly, a path was created among the crowd. The large group from Blazing Sun School was here. There were also people from various clans who came with them. Then, the cultivators from Bright Moon School arrived too.
Blazing Sun School and Bright Moon School were probably the two entities in Divine Sky City which were most concerned with the event. Starry School was reviving the rules of the ancient times and granting someone the position of the Son. They obviously had to come and take a look.
The people from different major clans stepped into Starry School one after another. The geniuses from various places also came to observe the ceremony. In the outer ring of Starry School, which was packed with people, there were three cultivators walking together and looking at the scene curiously.
“It seems to be very lively there,” one of them said. He was skinny and his eyes were very bright. Some cynicism and frivolousness could be seen from his expression.
“Do you want to join in the fun again?” a handsome figure beside him questioned, widening his eyes.
“Why not just go and take a look?” the frivolous young man replied, grinning.
“We still need to find the little brother.”
“Then let’s ask the seventh brother.” The skinny young man looked at a fat figure behind him, smiling. Realizing his stare, the fat person shivered, after which he said softly, “Fourth brother, we wouldn’t waste too much time anyway. Let’s just go and take a look?”
“Just because the rest are not here, you have so much trouble.” The young man beside them glanced at the skinny young man, unhappy.
“Brother, I’m doing this for your good. It’s called ‘reading thousands of books is not as good as traveling thousands of miles.’ Since we’re traveling, we obviously have to take part in more things,” the skinny young man argued, smiling.
“Reasonable.” The young man whom he addressed as brother was long used to his shameless reasoning. After he said so, he turned his head and widened his eyes at the fat man behind him.
The fat man lowered his head gently and felt somewhat wronged. I can’t provoke any one of them When can I beat them?!
“Seven, go and create a path,” someone in front said. The fat person raised his head and looked totally lost.
“You’re fat and can squeeze through more easily.” The skinny young man smiled and stared at him. The fat man was speechless and walked forward. Why is it always me?
At the moment, cultivators from many different places were gathered together in Starry School.
There were many seats on both sides of the ceremony platform, on which various cultivators were sitting. The people from West Mountain Dragon Clan, Gu Clan, and Jin Clan were all present.
Gu Hanshan, the leader of Gu Clan, was here himself. The person from the Dragon Clan was still Madame Long. Recently, she had been handling everything for the Dragon Clan. In Jin Clan, the person present was similarly its leader.
At the moment, Gu Yunxi was sitting beside her father and she asked, “Father, do you know who the Son is?”
“Yes.” Gu Hanshan smiled and nodded.
“Who is it?” Gu Yunxi asked curiously. She really could not think who it could possibly be.
“Let’s just wait for the chief to announce it later,” Gu Hanshan said, smiling. He deliberately kept his daughter in suspense.
Gu Yunxi nodded her head, disappointed. Since her father did not want to tell her, she could only wait.
Suddenly, someone walked up to them. The person was handsome and had a supreme temperament. Bowing gently, he said, “Greetings, uncle Gu.”
“I haven’t seen you for a long while and indeed you’re becoming more good-looking. You already have some temperament of your father at that time. I hope that in the future, you’ll also have the glory you father once had,” Gu Hanshan said, smiling.
“Uncle Gu, Thank you. My father was truly paralleled in the past and I’ll work hard so that I will not bring disgrace to his name.” Long Mu folded his hands, after which he nodded gently at Gu Yunxi. Gu Yunxi smiled and nodded back to return the greeting. Then, Long Mu left the place. He came here to greet them out of etiquette. After all, the relationship between his father and Gu Hanshan that time was very good.
Many people glanced at Long Mu and Gu Yunxi, wondering if these two very outstanding young people would be together in the future.
Zhen Rong similarly glanced at Gu Yunxi, after which she asked the person beside her, “Father, will Dragon Clan and Gu Clan ally through marriage?”
“Probably not.” The stern-looking person beside her shook his head.
“Alright,” Zhen Rong nodded gently. “Father, do you still not know who the Son is?”
“It has indeed been kept in secret. Let’s just watch. The result will be out soon and there’s no point guessing now.”
At the moment, Ye Futian and his friends had also arrived and were walking among the crowd. Many Starry School disciples glanced at him, thinking about why he was here again.
Jiang Nan also saw Ye Futian and his face turned cold. Ye Futian was unwilling to join Starry School but he kept coming here. How ridiculous this was. However, when they saw Ye Futian walk behind Madame Long, they were also relieved. It seemed like Ye Futian was already a real member of Dragon Clan.
Time passed slowly. On top of the stairs, the important people of Starry School arrived one after another, many of which were elders in the Sage Plane. They stood at the two sides of the platform, all having a solemn expression. Immediately, the vast space started to turn quiet.
Just then, two cultivators appeared. One of them was holding in his hands an extremely gorgeous starry robe, while the other was holding a crown. The two of them stood on the two sides of the center, ready to crown the Son.
Countless people were astonished. Both of them were sage-level elders.
They brought the holy crown and robe for the Son themselves. It was indeed an extremely glory to have.
When Chief Chen also appeared on the top of the stairs, the place fell into a deafening silence. Everyone looked up at him.
Was he finally going to announce the candidate?
Countless disciples in Starry School held their breaths, especially those outstanding geniuses. They all had a wild wish that they would be the person. Long Mu and Jin Yunxiao were also among the crowd. They stared at Chief Chen, as well as the holy crown and robe.
In the entire place, including both the inside and outside of Starry School, everyone held their breaths and waited.
Who exactly would the Son be?
Chief Chen scanned the crowd. Then, he said in a solemn voice, “Today, Starry School will crown the Son. You will all witness the ceremony.”
“Let’s invite the Son.”
“Invite the Son!” many people on the sides said simultaneously. Their voices resounded in the sky.
Let’s invite the Son. Who is the Son? The whole place was in complete silence. Nobody moved or produced any sound at all.
Suddenly, somewhere among the crowd, a handsome, extraordinary figure in white shirt walked out. At that moment, he seemed to be the only person left in the world!
