“What did third brother do?” Xue Ye overheard Master Yun and Ye Futian’s conversation and asked curiously.
“I met third brother on the outskirts of a small city in the Barren State, within the woods. He was snatching a Dragon Grass that the Top Three Schools had their eyes on. I disguised my identity and stole the Dragon Grass, then split it with third brother,” Ye Futian smiled and replied. If an ordinary disciple of the Top Three Schools dared to say such a thing, he would definitely be tortured. However, the Son’s status was different. He could say such a thing jokingly, and an Upper Noble Plane like Master Yun could only be depressed about it. Compared to the Dragon Grass, the Martial Arts Battlefield’s collapse was also thanks to him.
Xue Ye and Luo Fan blinked in disbelief.
“Brothers, do you want to stay here and cultivate?” Ye Futian asked. The feeling of reuniting after such a long time made him ecstatic, and even though his brothers were crafty, they treated him very well.
“There isn’t even a Son position anymore, what’s the point of being an ordinary disciple?” Luo Fan replied disdainfully. This fellow had become the Son and wanted them to stay and cultivate? So that they would take his orders? Wouldn’t that mess up the hierarchy? How could they let it happen?
“Alright then.” Ye Futian nodded in agreement. That was how he felt too, cultivating as an ordinary disciple in the Top Three Schools was a meaningless thing to do. It was only normal that his brothers did not want to stay.
“What other plans do you all have then?” Ye Futian continued asking.
“We heard about your name in the Divine Sky City and wanted to go to the Celestial Pavilion to look for you. Seeing as you’ve gotten to such a high position, we can set our minds at rest.” Luo Fan patted Ye Futian on the shoulder and said solemnly, “Now, I should go visit second sister.”
“Brother treats me ‘really well’.” Ye Futian was speechless and looked at Luo Fan. As expected, even though this guy was disciplined by second sister in the Cottage, he was reveling in the pain and still missed her.
“Of course.” Luo Fan nodded his head seriously. “Do you need me to help you tell her anything?”
“Just tell her that I’m doing well.” Ye Futian smiled radiantly.
“When will you be going over?” Yi Xiaoshi asked.
“Probably after I step into the Noble Plane,” Ye Futian replied. “Seventh brother, you should be in the Noble Plane by now.”
“Of course.” The fatty could finally hold his head up high.
“Then you better speed up your cultivation, or soon you’ll be unable to defeat me,” Ye Futian grinned while saying. The fatty glared at him and really wanted to bash him up when he saw Ye Futian’s grin.
“Brother, are my master and masteress doing well?” Ye Futian asked.
“They’re on the Book Mountain. Who dares to treat them badly?” Xue Ye replied.
“What about Qingxuan?” Yu Sheng asked.
“She’s now cultivating in the College as well, rest easy.” Xue Ye nodded and saw Ye Wuchen looking at him too. He understood what Ye Wuchen wanted to ask and said, “Liu Chenyu is the same as well, just that she often stands on the mountain and blanks out. When your cultivation level is higher, bring her out if you have the chance.”
“Alright.” Ye Wuchen nodded his head. He felt bad.
“Alright, then we’ll be leaving,” Luo Fan told Ye Futian.
“Now?” Ye Futian was stunned. “Aren’t you going to stay in the Divine Sky City for a few days to accompany me?”
“Accompany you?” Luo Fan looked at Ye Futian disparagingly.
“What kind of look is that” Ye Futian saw Luo Fan’s expression and was dispirited.
“We’re leaving, take care of yourself.” Luo Fan turned around flashily. This fellow isn’t his second sister, why should he accompany him?
“Be careful or you’ll be chased out,” Ye Futian cursed him.
“We’re not third brother going to ask for her hand in marriage, we have no pressure.” Luo Fan waved his hand, Xue Ye and the fatty also left jovially. Ye Futian looked at them walking out, smiled and said, “Fourth brother, fifth brother, seventh brother, take care.”
“The boundless sky belongs to the birds.” Luo Fan felt really unrestrained. The Barren State was really big, he could travel wherever he wanted. After seeing his second sister, he could continue to travel.
Ye Futian smiled. His brothers were probably too confined in the Cottage, with their carefree personalities, if it had not been for his second sister, they would probably have gone traveling the world long ago. Now that they were done with the Eastern Barren Territory’s matters, they were free to explore the boundless sky.
Such a mentality was really good.
Ye Futian turned around and walked in the direction of the Starry School, Yu Sheng, Ye Wuchen and the rest following him. After he had settled matters on this end, he naturally had to visit the College Chief.
Outside the ancient temple, Ye Futian heard a voice from inside when he arrived. “Come in, you don’t have to wait outside in the future.”
“Understood.” Ye Futian’s footsteps moved inwards, and the College Chief’s voice sounded again. “Arrange the Son’s living area, bring him there to settle down.”
“Understood.” The servant outside the ancient temple acknowledged the command and left.
When Ye Futian stepped into the ancient temple, he saw a starry dimension within. Above the ancient temple, an ancient scroll floated in the air. It was the Starry Treasure Book. The Starry Treasure Book released a glaring light, as though the stars were shining from within the book.
“This is the Starry School’s legacy, the Starry Treasure Book. In it there are many secret methods and spells, you can use your holy light and martial arts fate to try and decipher it for a period of time,” the College Chief told Ye Futian.
“Alright.” Ye Futian nodded his head. Being crowned as the Son the moment he entered the school and learning the Starry School’s secret methods, such treatment was probably something that the other Starry School disciples could only wish for.
“After you’ve ended your cultivation, I have other plans for you, mainly to increase your battle ability. Focus on your cultivation and worry about nothing else,” the College Chief continued to remind Ye Futian, then left, leaving him alone in the Starry ancient temple.
A ray of holy light started glowing and turned into starlight, merging with the stars in the ancient temple. He closed his eyes, his spiritual energy melding into the ancient temple’s starry dimension as if they had become one.
Afterward, many dazzling images appeared in his brain. There were remarkably strong spells turning into stars, and a shadow appeared among the stars. The giant star appeared to transform into an absolute defense. Evidently, it was an exceedingly strong star defense spell.
Around another shadow, there were tiny stars revolving around it, which proceeded to strike out with a horrifying force that could level mountains. There were also flying stars that could transform into immense gravity, causing people to sink within, unable to escape.
It was an eye-opener for Ye Futian. The power of the stars used the earth element as its foundation, but many of the strong techniques included other elements within. Of course, Ye Futian understood that the person who had created this miraculous ability was not the same as he thought him to be.
Sage plane experts could decipher the rule power, saints could probably use law power. This Starry path was likely to be a saint’s understanding of the stars in the skies and using the Starry path as a foundation, he created many techniques and spells.
At the current cultivation level he was at, even though he could feel the mystery of it, but he could probably only understand and use the basics of it.
Ye Futian was immersed in his cultivation and completely assimilated into the starry dimension, using a saint’s law to decipher his cultivation, he completely forgot about the passage of time.
Since the day Ye Futian was crowned as Son, the Divine Sky City was bustling for a long period of time. In this time, Ye Futian’s name was definitely the most mentioned in the Divine Sky City, as many people were debating whether Ye Futian could become a legendary person like Long Yitian.
After all, Ye Futian had demonstrated even more outstanding potential than Long Yitian to date, but potential did not necessarily equate to one’s achievements; opportunity and one’s luck were also required. However, Ye Futian was crowned the Son and donned the holy robes. From this, they could see that his luck was strong, and at least on the same level as Long Yitian. Time would be the best judge.
The Starry School was also not peaceful during this time. The Jin Clan’s members were unhappy, but the College Chief had gone ahead without notifying them, letting Ye Futian dominate his generation. Moreover, he had the support of the Dragon Clan and the Gu Clan, so the Jin Clan had to accept it no matter how unhappy they were.
A month’s time had passed and Ye Futian felt his cultivation improve tremendously. His physique and spiritual energy had reached another level, and he could feel a breakthrough coming. A month ago, when he left the Martial Arts Battlefield, he had just stepped into the fifth level of the Arcana Plane. At this rate, it would not be long before he entered the Noble Plane.
After Ye Futian had ended his cultivation, he stepped out of the ancient temple and the College Chief Chen Yuan appeared. Chief Chen looked at him and said, “your rod skills are very strong, they must be passed down by someone extraordinary.”
“Yes.” Ye Futian nodded.
“Let me see your ritual implement,” Chen Yuan requested.
Ye Futian took out his Five Element Rod, and Chen Yuan held it in his hand and said, “Although it isn’t bad, it’s like a dead item, unfitting of you. You should go and get another one.”
“Huh?” Ye Futian looked at Chen Yuan, the College Chief really treated him very well.
“In the eastern region of the Barren State, near Zhongzhou City, there is a Xuantian City. On a mountain outside the city, there is a Zhaixing House, it is a very strong clan.” Chen Yuan looked at Ye Futian and continued, “Not long later, the chief of the Zhaixing House will be having his birthday banquet. You will represent the Starry School to go and celebrate his birthday. Of course, the purpose of this trip, apart from celebrating his birthday, is to obtain the treasure of the Zhaixing House, the Polearm of Divine Destruction.”
Ye Futian was stunned, and looked at the old man speechlessly. “Why would the treasure of the Zhenxing House be given to me?” Since i was a major clan that had the qualifications to make the Starry School go forth to celebrate his birthday, it was evidently on the same level as the Divine Sky City’s major clans. To take the treasure of such a clan, this was..
“You are the Son of the Starry School, dominating your generation. What is there not to be done?” Chen Yuan nonchalantly said, “The Polearm of Divine Destruction is made from the meteorites falling from the nine heavens. The Polearm is 90,000 catties heavy, if you are able to use it well, you can crush many people just by its weight. It has the name Polearm of Divine Destruction, it suits you well.”
“90,000 catties!” Ye Futian felt numb, although martial arts cultivators had immense strength, for someone who specialized in both martial arts and spells like him, he had a strong physique. At the fifth level of the Arcana Plane, his strength was immense, but a 90,000 catty rod still made him shudder.
“Go and make preparations, you leave tomorrow, moreover, the people going this time will not only be from the Starry School.” Chief Chen went back into the ancient temple after saying all that, leaving Ye Futian there, stunned. Ye Futian shook his head bitterly, the College Chief really treated him well, crowning him as the Son, passing down the saint’s law, and now helping him to pick a ritual implement for him to ‘collect’.
Whether he could obtain it was another matter..
