In the room, Ye Futian followed behind Hua Jieyu as he watched her with a glint in his eye.
"Pretty nice environment," said Hua Jieyu with a smile after checking out the room.
"Yeah, perfect for resting," Ye Futian said, nodding.
Hua Jieyu walked to the bed and took off her outerwear, revealing her curvaceous figure. She then turned to look at Ye Futian. Smiling, she asked him, "Do I look good?"
Ye Futian blinked. Why did this feel like dj vu? Ye Futian had a bad feeling about what was about to happen but nodded anyway. "Very good," he said.
"Then I'll rest and you can keep looking," Hua Jieyu chuckled mischievously. She took off her shoes by the bed and laid down, hands behind her head. She continued to chuckle at Ye Futian.
"That's my bed, I should be able to sleep on it too, right?" Ye Futian watched the beautiful girl in front of his very eyes. How could she tease him like this?
"Just you try," said Hua Jieyu. She was still smiling but Ye Futian looked sad and pitiful. "Fox, what you're doing is wrong."
Hua Jieyu stretched her captivating body out on the bed. Her every movement was torture for Ye Futian.
"I'm sleeping," she said. Hua Jieyu turned away from Ye Futian and pulled the blanket over her body. This time around, Ye Futian had nothing to look at, just a hint of her curvy figure under the blanket.
Ye Futian did not know whether to laugh or to cry. He was definitely going to get payback on this tempting vixen.
With light steps, Ye Futian walked to the side of the bed and sat down on the floor. Softly, he spoke, "Fox, do you feel extra warm sleeping here with me?"
Hua Jieyu did not reply.
"I used too much energy in battle today. I want to lie down and rest but the floor is too cold. Why don't I get in bed?" Ye Futian said, full of confidence. Still no reply.
"Don't worry. I won't touch you, I'll just lay next to you," he continued.
"Okay, since you're not answering I'll take that as silent consent," said Ye Futian.
Ye Futian kept talking to himself. He got up off the ground and sat on the bed. Hua Jieyu made no movements to stop him. He had finally succeeded in getting onto the bed next to her. "So comfy," he said.
A moment later, he spoke again, his eyes were twinkling. "Wow, it's so fragrant. Fox, you smell so nice.
"Darn it, it feels kind of cold. It would be so nice to have a blanket." Ye Futian was still talking to himself. As he spoke, he tugged lightly at the covers and gently pulled it on himself. The two of them were not under the same covers.
Right now, Hua Jieyu, who still had her back to Ye Futian, was already flushed red. Her beautiful eyes kept blinking. She could feel the warmth radiating from his body.
"How is it still cold under the covers. Are you cold, Fox? I should just hold you," he said. Hua Jieyu felt his arm wrap around her waist gently, sending a shiver down her back. Didn't he say that he was just going to lay down next to her and not touch her? He was cold?
"Fox, why are you shaking? Is it because you're too cold? I should hold you tighter then," Ye Futian said. Hua Jieyu felt the arm around her waist pulling her in further. The red in her face spread to her ears, her neck. She was so shy.
"Stop bullying me," she spoke softly.
Hua Jieyu's soft voice reached Ye Futian's ears and he smiled. He held on to the girl in his arms tightly, taking in her sweet scent. His nose was in her hair. He closed his eyes to savor this moment. Quietly, he said, "I wouldn't have the heart to bully you. Wait for me to marry you."
"Okay, I'll wait for you," Hua Jieyu responded, nodding slowly. Her shaking body calmed and she slipped into a deep sleep with a smile on her face. She felt safe in his arms.
Fox, I will definitely marry you, Ye Futian thought to himself while he held her warm body against his own.
While the loving couple shared this sweet moment, the happenings at the School of Emperor Star spread wildly. In a short while, all of Donghai Academy knew of the story.
Ye Futian, the disciple of the Guqin Devil, brutally defeated the disciple of the Art Saint, Zhou Mu. Then he crashed the School of the Emperor Star and joined hands with Yu Sheng to defeat two eight-starred Glory Plane cultivators from the School of the Treasury Star. After all that, Ye Futian announced to everyone that Donghai Academy's top beauty, Hua Jieyu, was his girlfriend. The couple revealed their relationship hand in hand.
Mu Yunxuan, an eight-starred Glory Plane cultivator in the School of the Emperor Star, got jealous and insulted Hua Jieyu, angering Ye Futian. Thus, Ye Futian challenged Mu Yunxuan to a battle to the death, and eventually defeated him with ease. Finally, with the Decree of the Minister in hand, Ye Futian slaughtered Mu Yunxuan right in front of the headmaster of the Emperor Star school.
The seven schools of Donghai Academy were stirred up in absolute shock. Everyone was in disbelief. They had no idea that boy-genius Ye Futian, who made a name in Donghai Academy for himself by fighting, was this powerful. In a couple of years, he may even be more powerful than the Guqin Devil was in the past.
It was now dusk. Ye Futian's room was quiet and warm.
In her sleep, Hua Jieyu had unknowingly turned over to face Ye Futian. Her soft body laid quietly in his arms. At this time, she opened her eyes. Her long eyelashes fluttered as she observed Ye Futian. "Aren't you going to get up?
"No, I'm going to continue sleeping until the sun rises tomorrow," Ye Futian said with a smile.
"You wish! You rested during the day, so you have to cultivate during the night," said Hua Jieyu, escaping his embrace. She got out from under the covers and sat up on the bed. Her hair was messy but it only made her more enchanting. She was so beautiful that it hurt to look at her.
"Fox, I could just eat you up," Ye Futian muttered. Hua Jieyu blinked and flushed red. Smiling, she said, "You can try."
"I'm really going to do it," said Ye Futian. He tried to make a move. His hands ready to grab Hua Jieyu.
A slender leg swept toward him and Ye Futian flipped off the bed.
"Are you trying to murder your husband?" Ye Futian sat up on the ground and asked her sadly. Hua Jieyu got off the bed and chuckled at him. She seemed proud of her actions.
"Ye Futian," called a voice from outside. It was Yi Qingxuan. Ye Futian was upset to be interrupted at this moment.
"I'm sleeping!" he replied.
"Ye Futian, hurry out!" she continued to shout from outside his room. Ye Futian reluctantly stood up. What did this girl want from him?
"Hua Jieyu, are you here?" another voice rang out from outside. Hua Jieyu froze. Then, she began to panic. She looked at Ye Futian and began to straighten out her hair and put on her outerwear.
"Who is that?" Ye Futian whispered to Hua Jieyu.
"My mother," Hua Jieyu replied in the softest manner.
Ye Futian turned to stone and jumped when he processed what she had just said.
Oh no, this was bad.
Moments later, the two of them left the room. Outside, they saw a few people. Headmaster Yi Xiang was also here. He stood not far away from the rest.
Standing in front of Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu was a beautiful woman. She looked to be around 30-years-old. Her whole being radiated elegance. One look at her and Ye Futian knew who she was. No wonder Hua Jieyu looked the way she did. This women in front of him must have been an extreme beauty in her youth. Her beauty plus Hua Fengliu's good looks, it was no surprise that their daughter was such a beauty.
To this day, Ye Futian had not found a man whose looks could compare to that of Hua Fengliu, other than himself.
"Mother," Hua Jieyu spoke softly. Ye Futian glared at Yi Qingxuan. Why hadn't she notified him earlier?
"Masteress," Ye Futian greeted the beautiful woman in front of him.
Nandou Wenyin eyed her daughter's messy hair then looked at Ye Futian. It was difficult to determine her thoughts through her eyes because they remained emotionless. To Ye Futian, it was like waiting to be sentenced.
To his master's wife, Fox's mother, Ye Futian could not act out no matter how arrogant he was.
"Qingxuan, let's go," Yi Xiang called out to his daughter. Yi Qingxuan and Yu Sheng bother nodded and left with the headmaster. The only people left standing outside were Ye Futian, Hua Jieyu, Nandou Wenyin, and Nandou Wenshan, who stood behind his sister.
"How is your master doing?" Nandou Wenyin suddenly opened her mouth to speak. She didn't question Ye Futian about what happened in the room but instead asked about Hua Fengliu. Her voice was crisp and comfortable.
"Master is doing well in the Guqin Gardens. He just misses you, Masteress," answered Ye Futian.
"He has Tang Lan to take care of him. So of course, he's doing well," said Nandou Wenyin. She sounded so calm. Ye Futian could feel sweat drip down his forehead. Was this how all jealous women acted?
"Master initially had no intentions of staying, but now that it is inconvenient for him to move around by himself, he needs someone to take care of him. Plus, Ms. Tang Lan was very adamant about him staying, so he had no choice but to accept her offer. The first day we arrived in the City of Donghai, Master brought me to the Nandou Palace. He pointed at the inside and told me that Masteress lived there and that he wanted to go in to see you," Ye Futian explained. Nandou Wenyin observed Ye Futian for a while, and from the look in his eyes, she decided that he did not seem to be lying.
After that, Ye Futian noticed that the look in her eyes had softened.
Nandou Wenyin looked at Hua Jieyu and asked her, "You like him?"
"Yes," nodded Hua Jieyu.
"Your father and I were the same in our youth, but you know how that ended. If something happens in the future, will you regret this?" Nandou Wenyin asked her daughter.
The young woman shook her head.
"Silly child," Nandou Wenyin's voice was soft and gentle. She sighed and turned to Ye Futian. "You took advantage of the challenge against the School of the Emperor Star to announce your relationship with Hua Jieyu. Did you do it on purpose so the Nandou family would see?"
"Masteress, I had no other choice. Even if I didn't admit it, the Nandou family probably already guessed as much," Ye Futian answered.
"You're even more arrogant than your master," said Nandou Wenyin. "I'm taking Jieyu home."
"Mother." Hua Jieyu looked at her mother.
Nandou Wenyin ignored her and continued to look at Ye Futian. "Come to our place for a visit tomorrow."
Ye Futian was frozen in shock upon hearing her words. Quickly, he broke out into a smile. "Thank you, Masteress!"
Hua Jieyu was just as surprised. It seemed like her mother did not object to their relationship.
"Hey kid, you're pretty gifted," Nandou Wenshan said suddenly. He walked closer to the three and smiled at Ye Futian.
"Senior, was it you who tried to warn me that day at the Luo Palace?" asked Ye Futian. After eliminating the chance that it was Vice Headmaster Han Mo of the Emperor Star school, Ye Futian always wondered who could have possibly warned him that day. Seeing Nandou Wenshan now, he had a realization.
"Why? Have you antagonized everyone in the Nandou family? I'm Hua Jieyu's blood uncle," Nandou Wenshan said while staring at Ye Futian.
"Oh." Ye Futian held in a smile and nodded his head. Then, he said rather loudly, "Greetings, Uncle!"
"Shameless," Nandou Wenshan reprimanded him jokingly. Afterward, the Nandou siblings led Hua Jieyu away.
As they were leaving, Hua Jieyu kept looking back at Ye Futian. She did not want to leave him.
