In Qingzhou Academy, two figures strolled through the forested path in the academy like a couple. The girl was 18-years-old. It was the prime of one's youth. She was pure yet sexy. The boy was a bit younger but had an outstanding aura and was very handsome.
"Do you have to leave today?" Qin Yi lowered her head. She walked quickly and her voice was sad.
"Yeah." Ye Futian nodded.
"You brat. You want to leave as soon as you see your senior? Am I that unappreciated?" Qin Yi gave Ye Futian a look.
"Senior, you know that Donghai City has a lot of things that need someone so successful to do," Ye Futian said jokingly with a smile.
"I trust you." Qin Yi glared in mocking anger and then smiled. "Back then, you said you were a mandate sorcerer and I didn't believe you. Now, I'll believe whatever you say."
"My charisma is getting stronger," Ye Qingxuan said proudly. "Are you falling for me?"
Qin Yi was taken by surprise. She smiled and continued walking forward as she said, "Yeah, I am."
"Well, it doesn't matter. Too many people are pursuing me. Senior, you're too slow." Ye Futian smiled.
"Go die." Qin Yi raised a slim leg and kicked Ye Futian while rolling her eyes. Qin Yi looked especially attractive now.
The students who passed by saw the two play-fighting. They were all envious, thinking that Ye Futian was still the same powerful Ye Futian. But now, they were no longer looking at him with jealousy and hatred. Instead, there was some respect. They all knew what had happened in Qingzhou City. The Ye Futian now had become someone they needed to look up to. In the future, he might even become a legend of Qingzhou Academy.
There was a pretty girl standing in the near distance. She was beautiful and tall. After half a year, her beauty had increased.
"Senior, look, I didn't lie," Ye Futian said to Qin Yi after seeing the girl.
"Look how cocky you are." Qin Yi sighed inwardly and they walked forward.
"Why didn't you come see me?" Feng Qingxue asked as she forced herself to smile.
"I'm here now, aren't I?" Ye Futian smiled. "The little girl from before has become more beautiful. Do you miss me?"
"This brat." Qin Yi looked at him, speechless from his narcissism.
"Yeah," Feng Qingxue nodded with a smile. Qin Yi was shocked.
"That sucks. You'll have to keep missing me." Ye Futian shrugged.
Feng Qingxue studied him. "I want to see the outside world too."
"It's dangerous out there and you're so pretty. It'll be more dangerous for you," Ye Futian said.
"But you're there, right?" Feng Qingxue seemed to have gathered all her courage to say that.
"Don't, Uncle Feng will think I stole you away." Ye Futian reached out and petted Feng Qingxue's head. She froze, allowing Ye Futian to mess up her hair. This felt so familiar. But sadly, everything was different and they could not go back.
"How is Yu Sheng?" Feng Qingxue asked.
"Oh, Yu Sheng," Ye Futian muttered. He was angry thinking about the guy. "He's dating and doesn't want me anymore."
Feng Qingxue was shocked. Even Yu Sheng was dating? Thinking of this, she suddenly felt bitter. It seemed that time had really changed a lot.
"What about you and Hua Jieyu? Are you dating?" Feng Qingxue studied him.
"She can't escape from me. She didn't want me to come here." Thinking of the fox, Ye Futian's eyes twinkled. He was still smiling casually but it made Feng Qingxue jealous. They were the perfect pair.
"I wish you two well." Feng Qingxue smiled gently.
"We will." Ye Futian smiled as well. "I'm leaving. I don't want you two to miss me too much, so I'll hug you two."
"Okay." Feng Qingxue nodded. She walked forward and hugged Ye Futian. She leaned her head against his chest as if wanting to enjoy that feeling. For a moment, her heart was besieged. Tears rolled down instantly. She pushed Ye Futian away and ran off with a tear-streaked face. So that was how it felt to hug him.
Looking at Feng Qingxue's back, Ye Futian sighed inside. Qin Yi rolled her eyes. She walked forward to hug him lightly and then separated.
"Senior, I'm leaving." Ye Futian smiled and turned confidently.
Minister Zuo and the others were waiting in the distance. Seeing Ye Futian come, the girl beside Minister Zuo was unhappy. She said, "This is someone with a girlfriend, shameless jerk."
Minister Zuo felt awkward. This girl was full of resentment.
"Uncle Zuo, let's go," Ye Futian said when he got close.
Minister Zuo nodded. The people climbed on their demons.
Sensing something, Ye Futian glanced at the girl. "I'm attractive but you don't have to keep staring at me, right?"
"Shameless," the girl spat. Then she turned away.
"I" Ye Futian was speechless.
The demons leaped into the sky. The people of Qingzhou Academy watched them leave. Many of the big figures still had not calmed down.
In the sky, Minister Zuo asked Ye Futian from his demon, "Futian, what are your plans when you return to Donghai City? Will you keep studying at the academy? Would you like to go to Nandou's Royal City?"
"Are there many talented men in the Royal City?" Ye Futian asked.
"Of course," Minister Zuo answered. "The best of Nandou go to the Royal City, including the most talented from Donghai City."
"Really?" Ye Futian chuckled. "Of course I will but not now."
"Oh, I'm sure you have many things you still need to do in Donghai City. I won't pressure you but next spring, something big will happen in Nandou Nation. You must come." Minister Zuo smiled.
"What big thing?" Ye Futian was confused.
"Do you know about Nandou Nation's history?" Minister Zuo asked.
"I heard from my professor that Nandou was once ruled by the Nandou family," Ye Futian answered. "Then, Emperor Donghuang and Emperor Ye ruled over the Divine Prefectures of the East. The powers of the world were reordered. Nandou was weak and walked down from the throne, replaced by the current king."
"Yes, the current royal family is named Luo. In order to remind themselves, they have not changed the name of the country. In addition, they hold a Tingfeng Banquet every ten years. Next year will be the next full decade. At this time, not only will the East Sea Prefecture come, people from all prefectures and cities of Nandou will come. The heroes will aggregate and meet each other. You can't miss it."
"If all the strong men of Nandou are there, why should I go?" Ye Futian asked.
"The stars of the banquet are your generation. The goal is to see the future of Nandou nation. The outstanding figures of Donghai Academy would definitely be included," Minister Zuo answered.
"Oh." Ye Futian nodded. He first thought of his professor's ailment. Since the Tingfeng Banquet was important, if the king noticed and liked him, it would be easier to heal Hua Fengliu, right?
"Oh, Xia Fan is the young master of the East Sea Prefecture. With his father there, I cannot deal with him directly. After returning, I must take care of some matters. To protect you from danger, I'll keep the Decree of the Minister with you. People will treat it as if I'm there." Minister Zuo gave Ye Futian his badge and said, "You still have to be careful about assassinations."
Ye Futian looked at the badge. He needed it but he did not accept it. "Uncle Zuo," he said. He was still suspicious. Was Minister Zuo treating him so well really because he helped block the blow from the Snow Ape? He had defeated the princess with one blow because he was brash, but instead of blaming him, the minister had made the princess apologize too.
"Take it. This is useless for me. Just don't do bad things under my name," Minister Zuo said jokingly.
"Okay." Ye Futian nodded and took it. He would remember this gift. The badge was truly useful to him.
"Professor." The princess of Nandou looked at Ye Futian with jealousy. Who was the minister's true disciple?
The group advanced forward and finally reached Donghai City. Minister Zuo personally saw Ye Futian to the academy.
"Futian, remember, don't miss out next spring. Your stage shouldn't be in Donghai City," Minister Zuo advised.
"Okay, Uncle Zuo. I'm going back now," Ye Futian said. Minister Zuo nodded and watched as Ye Futian entered Donghai Academy.
"Let's go back too," Minister Zuo said.
But then, a figure walked out. He said before Minister Zuo, "Greetings, Minister Zuo. I am Nandou Ku."
"You are from the Nandou clan?"
"Yes, Minister Zuo. I have waited here for many days. My clan leader wishes for your help." Nandou Ku bowed.
After pondering, Minister Zuo nodded. "Since Nandou is inviting me, I will go with you."
"After you, Minister," Nandou Ku said politely. The group once again set off and soon arrived at the Nandou clan's home.
Hearing that Minister Zuo had arrived, the clan leader personally welcomed him to the courtyard. Other than the two, there was also a beautiful girl. It was Hua Jieyu.
"Minister Zuo, this is a descendant of the Nandou clan. Could you please tell me her fate and fortune?" the clan leader asked. Not many knew that Minister Zuo was an astrologer but he did.
"Okay." Minister Zuo nodded.
"Jieyu, please cooperate," the clan leader said. He had once asked Minister Zuo to calculate his but was rejected. Some things were better left unknown. However, Minister Zuo thought that Hua Jieyu was unimportant.
Hua Jieyu looked at him. Since Minister Zuo was back safely, that guy should be back too. He had lied saying he would be back in one or two days.
Minister Zuo walked to Hua Jieyu and cast his life chart. The light enveloped Hua Jieyu. After a count, Minister Zuo collected his life spirit. He was shocked. Staring at Hua Jieyu, he thought it was unbelievable. What kind of people were they? Why were their fates all so crazy?
