Ye Futian was hurt. Last time he beat a girl, he was insulted for not being a man. Now, he was being a shameless jerk? Why couldn't they just challenge normally?
Beside Yu Sheng, Yi Qingxuan thought of what happened last time and snorted. Glancing at where the girl's hand was and then looking at Ye Futian, she said, "You've crossed the line."
"I said anything is fair in combat and didn't want to fight but you insisted," Ye Futian explained logically.
The girl glared at him. Obviously, it was useless to talk about logic with women.
"Professor, I want him," the girl said to the scholarly middle-aged man.
"Huh?" Ye Futian was confused. He looked at the girl strangely and said, "I have a girlfriend."
The girl was confused as well. Then understanding what Ye Futian meant, her expression changed drastically. "Youare so shameless."
Minister Zuo, referred to as "Professor" by the girl cleared his throat. "You used the wrong words."
The girl froze. Thinking back to how she said "I want him," she realized it really was easy to misunderstand but she didn't care. She whined, "Professor, you know what I mean."
"Stubborn." Minister Zuo gave her a look, then turned back to Ye Futian. "What's your name?"
"Minister, I am Ye Futian," he bowed and said. "Minister, your disciple challenged me."
"I know." Minister Zuo nodded. "Very good, your spells and strength are both extremely strong. You didn't even use battle techniques. She isn't at your level."
"How can you say that?" The girl looked at her professor, wounded.
"It's the truth," Minister Zuo said. "He's in a lower plane than you. Now you know there are many talented people out there. This is just one school in East Sea Prefecture. Don't be so arrogant in the future."
At this time, Xia Fan walked out of the crowd to Minister Zuo's side. He looked at Ye Futian coldly and murmured something into the Minister's ears.
Minister Zuo was taken aback and glanced at Ye Futian in shock.
Ye Futian was suspicious. Xia Fan's eyes were cold and he was probably plotting against him.
"Ye Futian, come here," Minister Zuo said. The boy nodded and walked over.
"I came this time about Qingzhou City's relics," Minister Zuo said to him. "I heard from Xia Fan that someone in Donghai Academy had come out of it alive so I wanted to take a look. I didn't expect to run into you. Are you willing to come with me? Don't worry, I will do everything to protect your safety."
Ye Futian's eyes flashed. It was about Emperor Ye Qing's relics again. Qingzhou City was subordinate to the East Sea Prefecture. Since the appearance of Emperor Ye Qing's relics was such big news, the East Sea Prefecture obviously had to report to the Nandou Nation. It was natural for them to send someone over too. However, if Xia Fan did this voluntarily, he probably wanted to kill Ye Futian. After all, he knew what Mount Tianyao had. But Xia Fan's plan would most likely fail. How would the Snow Ape treat him in Mount Tianyao?
"Minister, a demon lord protects Emperor Ye Qing's statue on Mount Tianyao. It is really powerful. Even if you are skilled, it would still be dangerous. It's pure luck that I survived," Ye Futian warned.
"I understand but the emperor commanded this. I have to go take a look." Minister Zuo nodded. "I've already sent someone to scope out the path. When he returns, we will leave. I will have you stay with me."
Ye Futian pretended to be uncomfortable. Then he very unwillingly nodded. "If there's any danger, please remember to retreat."
"Don't worry." Minister Zuo patted Ye Futian's shoulder. Ye Futian sighed inwardly. He didn't expect to return to Qingzhou City so soon. He could only go ask the Snow Ape if she would come out or not.
"What are you talking about?" the girl came up and asked.
"I was convincing him to accept your request. He accepted now," Minister Zuo said.
The girl smirked and looked at Ye Futian proudly. "Good, you know your place. You're mine now."
Ye Futian was upset. Looking at her, he said, "You're pretty but I really do have a girlfriend, and she's prettier than you."
"Jerk." The girl was pissed.
The Minister said, "Okay, princess, we should go." Then he said to the people of Donghai Academy, "Thank you for your time."
"You're welcome, Minister. Won't you stay a few more days?" the big chiefs tried to keep him longer.
"No, I'm living in the Xia House." Minister Zuo shook his head. He was the minister of Nandou Nation and the East Sea Prefecture was under him. He naturally lived at the Xia House.
"I will come get you when we leave," he said to Ye Futian. Then he led the people away. While leaving, the girl glared at Ye Futian. The boy shrugged helplessly. Was she trying to scare him? Well, the tides would turn at Mount Tianyao.
After Minister Zuo left, many people of Donghai Academy glanced at Ye Futian. This guy was such a pervert. Multiple disciples had failed against the girl but he squashed her so quickly and was praised by the Minister. The big chiefs stared at Ye Futian deeply. Would he be favored by Minister Zuo?
The crowd scattered gradually. Yi Qingxuan walked over and smiled at him. "You're doomed. People will remember you now."
"It's hard to have such good looks," Ye Futian sighed.
Qingxuan glared at him and said, "You clearly hit somewhere you shouldn't have. You crossed the line."
"It's a battle. How would I know?" Ye Futian said innocently.
"Who knows if you did that on purpose or not," Yi Qingxuan teased with a smile.
"You know too much," Yu Sheng said from the side.
Ye Futian stared at them and sighed. "Yu Sheng, you've changed."
"Learned from you," Yu Sheng said. Ye Futian could only heave a sigh.
"Let's go," Yi Xiang called.
Ye Futian ran up and said, "Headmaster, I remember you mentioned before that Minister Hua and Minister Zuo are rivals. Is it this Minister Zuo?"
"Yes," Yi Xiang nodded. "Now you know why I couldn't reject him."
"Aren't you unethical to sell me out like this?" Ye Futian was frustrated. "What if something happens to me?"
"You aren't my disciple. You have nothing to do with me." Yi Xiang glanced at Ye Futian.
Ye Futian blinked, speechless.
"You said that you have a girlfriend. Is it Hua Jieyu?" Yi Xiang asked.
"How did you know?" Ye Futian looked at him.
"Huh, you think you're the only smart one? The School of Emperor Star aren't idiots either. Mu Yunxuan and Hua Jieyu's rumors were to test you two. They probably guessed your relationship already," Yi Xiang said.
"So what?" Ye Futian said nonchalantly. He had been annoyed these days and he was thinking about when to announce this news. The rumors pissed him off.
"You seem easy and free. Where do you get the confidence?" Yi Xiang asked.
"I have you," Ye Futian looked up and said.
Yi Xiang glanced at him. He could not refute it. "Minister Zuo has power and His Majesty trusts him greatly. If you can become acquainted with him, the Nandou family might consider you."
Ye Futian was frustrated. Emperor Ye Qing and his godfather both said that he would become an emperor but now he needed Nandou to consider him? What a tragedy.
"I'll take you to the School of the Emperor Star as compensation," Yi Xiang suddenly said.
Ye Futian was shocked. He quickly smiled. "You're the best."
"Get out." Yi Xiang rolled his eyes. "I'm taking you to see the senior of the School, your grandmaster, not your girlfriend."
"I know." Ye Futian's expression was understanding. Yi Xiang did not want to talk to him anymore.
The next day, Yi Xiang took Ye Futian to meet a senior of the School of the Emperor Star. Yi Xiang was the headmaster of the School of the Finance Star. He was equal status to the headmaster of the School of the Emperor Star so he could not be stopped. Yi Xiang and Ye Futian entered and walked toward a pavilion.
Inside the School, Hua Jieyu heard from Shu Yuyan about what happened yesterday. She looked wronged and said, "He really agreed, that jerk, jerk"
"He probably agreed because of Minister Zuo. He couldn't reject him," Shu Yuyan said softly.
"Is she pretty?" Hua Jieyu asked.
"Yes." Shu Yuyan nodded. "But not as pretty as you."
"That guy likes pretty girls. He must've done it on purpose." Hearing that the girl was pretty, Hua Jieyu felt even worse. She said quietly, "There are so many rumors about me but I didn't go see him. Did he get angry and fall for someone else?"
"Stop thinking nonsense." Shu Yuyan looked at Hua Jieyu and sighed inwardly. Even goddesses could panic like this. She was in too deep.
"You don't know him. If he promised to leave with that girl, she definitely likes him. He's so lustful that he won't be able to resist her charms." Hua Jieyu was worried.
"Is he that charismatic?" Shu Yuyan was speechless but Hua Jieyu nodded seriously.
"Is Elder Qin here?" A voice traveled over. Hua Jieyu and Shu Yuyan looked up and saw two figures standing outside the yard.
The speaker was Yi Xiang. Hua Jieyu's eyes landed on the handsome youth behind Yi Xiang. Her eyes focused there and saw the boy blink at her.
"Greeting, Headmaster Yi. Grandmaster is here," Hua Jieyu said.
Shu Yuyan also bowed. She smiled at Hua Jieyu and left.
"I am here to see Elder Qin," Yi Xiang said. Hua Jieyu nodded and led the way. Ye Futian followed.
"Stop pretending. Go say what you want to say and then come find me," Yi Xiang said. He then walked away. Ye Futian looked at his back, realizing the man was pretty loving.
"Why are you looking at me like that?" Ye Futian looked at Hua Jieyu with a smile. He saw that her eyes were slightly red. Jieyu dragged Ye Futian into a room.
Closing the door, Hua Jieyu studied him. "You went to the Luo palace?"
"Yeah." Ye Futian nodded.
"Don't believe the rumors. I have nothing to do with Mu Yunxuan," Hua Jieyu said, feeling wronged.
"I know." Ye Futian smiled and nodded.
Hua Jieyu stepped forward. She extended her slim arms and lightly hugged Ye Futian. She raised her head. Ye Futian looked at the shocking beauty before him. Those eyes were filled with emotions. He could faintly see a teardrop in the glittering eyes. She was so beautiful he lost his breath.
"Kiss me!" a dreamy voice said, almost melting Ye Futian's heart!
