Xiao Muyu's gaze turned cold gradually. How was it possible that such a shameless Renhuang existed?
Forging a Divine Wheel was her utmost priority. The level of her Divine Wheel would not only reflect her cultivation, but it would also affect her position in the clan in the future.
Even though the chances of forging a flawless Divine Wheel were slim, she still wanted to give it a try. She was willing to work for any opportunities.
However, she had not expected that Ye Futian would be this shameless.
In her opinion, when the cultivators reached the Renhuang Plane, aside from those who practiced demonic cultivation methods, it was rare to encounter one who drooled over beauties.
She was quite confident of her appearance, though she didn't pay too much attention to it. As compared to her looks, she cared more about her own cultivation. However, it did not mean that she would sell her body in exchange for cultivation methods.
"I must have misjudged you before this," Xiao Muyu said with a chilly voice. "I thought, since Renhuang Ye could forge flawless Divine Wheels, surely you are someone with an exceptional temperament. I have not expected you to be this despicable."
When Ye Futian heard Xiao Muyu's words, he could no longer maintain his smile. He revealed a strange expression. Despicable?
When he saw Xiao Muyu's gaze, he suddenly understood what was going on in her mind. This woman, did she think that...
Ye Futian was speechless. Surely this woman's imagination was running wild.
"Has Goddess Xiao misunderstood something?" Ye Futian said.
"Despicable and filthy fellow. I cannot work with you since there is little common ground for understanding between us." Xiao Muyu turned around and left.
"Wait a second." Ye Futian's expression was sullen. Xiao Muyu turned to look at Ye Futian with a frosty look. Today, she came alone without any clan members accompanying her. She came with the hope of seeking help from Ye Futian.
"Goddess Xiao, could it be that you think… I am interested in you?" Ye Futian was bewildered.
"Aren't you?" Xiao Muyu coldly snorted. Prior to this, Ye Futian had mentioned that he wanted to be the son-in-law of Xiao Clan, and he hinted her to be his concubine. In addition, his gaze was frivolous. It was hard for her not to think of him in that way.
"Qingyuan, Kong Xuan, please come over here," Ye Futian called. Xia Qingyuan and Kong Xuan approached Ye Futian while staring at him quizzically.
Ye Futian put both his hands on their shoulders. He glanced at Xiao Muyu and said, "Is my princess not pretty? Goddess Xiao, with your appearance, where do you get such confidence?"
Xia Qingyuan and Kong Xuan revealed strange expressions, especially Xia Qingyuan.
This shameless b*stard...
He was too shameless.
Xia Qingyuan wanted to say something, but she saw Kong Xuan standing there quietly. Even though Kong Xuan's expression was strange too, she played along with Ye Futian, allowing him to put his hand on her shoulder. She even stared at Xiao Muyu with a provocative gaze.
Xia Qingyuan, who was about to throw a fit, became composed instantly. She softly bit down on her lip. Then, she turned around to look at Xiao Muyu. One could even detect tenderness in her gaze.
The ladies' responses caused Xiao Muyu to be dumbfounded. Her expression turned even stranger.
Ye Futian did not have such intention?
The beauty of Xia Qingyuan and Kong Xuan was indeed on par with hers. In fact, their appearances could even be said to be more outstanding than hers. Moreover, both of them had unique temperaments that made them distinct from each other.
However, Xiao Muyu had not expected that Ye Futian would actually mock her appearance. Her facial expression turned sullen once again. This b*stard!
"Goddess Xiao, could it be that you believe that I am truly into you?" Ye Futian's voice sounded strange. "Or could it be that Goddess Xiao believes that I will help you with just one word without any cost?"
Ye Futian lowered his hands. Xia Qingyuan looked at her shoulder and then looked at Ye Futian's face from the side.
He was shameless and heartless.
"What price is Renhuang Ye asking for?" Xiao Muyu asked.
"I indeed have some experience accumulated from the learnings of three people. However, I need to pay a high price in order to help you. I also need to teach you a magnum opus level cultivation method. This is a method that I cannot share with outsiders. How can I help you with just a request?" Ye Futian had a look of a charlatan. His words confused Xiao Muyu until she could not make out which parts were true and which were lies.
Xiao Muyu was hesitant. She believed that it was definitely not easy to forge a flawless Divine Wheel. If Ye Futian truly mastered some method, it would certainly require an extremely high cost.
Aside from her own body, she did not have anything to be offered that Ye Futian would bat an eye at. After all, he himself had forged flawless Divine Wheels and possessed a palace of treasures.
Ye Futian couldn't help but sigh when he saw Xiao Muyu standing there.
To his surprise, the dignified young mistress of Xiao Clan was actually a naive soul.
He had already hinted to her that he would teach her a method that could not be shared with outsiders, but she still could not understand what he was trying to imply.
"A few days ago, someone came to ask whether or not they could be my disciple. However, my cultivation methods are very precious, and it cannot be taught to random outsiders," Ye Futian said indifferently, seemingly lamenting on a past event.
Xiao Muyu's face twitched when she heard Ye Futian's words.
Becoming his disciple?
Ye Futian and Xiao Muyu were of the same generation. They were even at the same Plane when they first entered God's relic, but Ye Futian was a step faster than her in proving his Way and breaking through to the Renhuang Plane. However, she still thought of him as someone who was of the same generation as her.
Hence, she had not considered the possibility of becoming his disciple before.
"Goddess Xiao, have a safe trip," Ye Futian wished her off, seemingly wanting her to leave now.
Xiao Muyu's gazes kept shifting like the clouds. Finally, she made up her mind and said, "I am willing to become a disciple of Renhuang Ye, seeking the Way and cultivating under your guidance."
"I suppose this is inappropriate," Ye Futian said as he looked at Xiao Muyu. "Goddess Xiao is the young mistress of Xiao Clan. You have exceptional talent. I am but a nobody. Besides that, my method can only increase the chances of you forging a flawless Divine Wheel; it is not a guarantee of success."
Prior to Xiao Muyu, Lin Clan of Dongsheng State had approached him before. Ye Futian indeed had no intention of accepting Lin Clan as his disciples. However, when Xiao Muyu came to find him today, he felt that Lin Clan's suggestion could be taken into consideration.
His disciples would be the grand-disciples of his master, Qi Xuangang.
When the Grandmaster was in danger, it would be appropriate for the grand-disciples to help out, right?
The clans of the grand-disciples would need to join in the aid too, right?
Before this, Ye Futian had accepted Dou Zhao of Dou Tribe as his junior on behalf of his master. Now, it would most likely not be a big deal for him to accept a disciple.
"Disciple is willing to give it a try." Xiao Muyu seemed to have accepted her role, addressing herself as "disciple."
"Accepting a disciple is a serious matter. It is no joke. If you regret it in the future and bear hatred towards me, it will cause both of us to turn against each other," Ye Futian said evasively. "I still think it's not appropriate."
"Disciple has made up my mind. Regardless of success or failure, I am willing to serve under Master," Xiao Muyu continued to persuade Ye Futian. She could not accept trading her body for cultivation methods. However, becoming one's disciple was a proper means to do so. She was willing to become Ye Futian's disciple in order to seize a higher opportunity of forging a flawless Divine Wheel. As long as Ye Futian was sincere in helping her, she would not have any grudges against him. Even if she failed, she would not blame him.
"I heard that in order to show their sincerity, the cultivators of Upper Worlds would prostrate when their Masters first accepted them as disciples. I am not a fan of formality, so a simpler salutation will do…" Ye Futian said.
As soon as he finished speaking, Xiao Muyu knelt down in front of Ye Futian and knocked her head thrice on the floor, saying, "Disciple Xiao Muyu will be under Master's tutelage starting from today. From now on, I will respect Master, obey Master's rules, study diligently, and uphold the manners between a disciple and a master. If I go against my word, may disaster fall upon me."
Ye Futian stared at Xiao Muyu, who was prostrating on the floor. His gaze turned serious; his demeanor was different from his casual state just now.
The reason why he acted mean towards Xiao Muyu was that he wanted to see how determined and sincere she was. If she could not reach his requirement, he would not take the risk of helping her.
Otherwise, not only would he lose a disciple that he trained, she might even repay his kindness with animosity.
He had been observing Xiao Muyu to see how devoted she was.
Extending his hands, Ye Futian helped Xiao Muyu to get on her feet. Xiao Muyu raised her head and stared at Ye Futian. Her gaze had clearly changed, too, showing hints of respect now. Since she had decided to be his disciple, her attitude towards him could not be the same as before.
"Why do you trust me?" Ye Futian asked.
He was merely trying his luck, but Xiao Muyu had really accepted him as her Master.
"Firstly, I want to seek the Way. Secondly, the cultivators of the Heavenly Mandate Realm trust you. Dou Zhao trusts you. Two possessors of flawless Divine Wheels trust you too," Xiao Muyu explained. "Hence, I also trust you."
Ye Futian was under the guidance of two figures who were at the peak. Before this, the cultivators of the Heavenly Mandate Realm crowned Ye Futian as their leader.
Dou Zhao of Dou Tribe willingly followed Ye Futian too. He even asked his tribe to be involved in Ye Futian's dispute with the other top forces.
Right now, there were two other possessors of flawless Divine Wheels beside Ye Futian.
Prior to this, she had been doubtful and struggled. Ye Futian was still the same generation as she was. However, once she thought about it carefully, in reality, that was an illusion. She only felt so because she had encountered Ye Futian in God's relic. Would she feel the same if she had not encountered him?
Was there any issue with following a master that was a Renhuang who had forged flawless Divine Wheels?
Setting aside Ye Futian's character, he was still qualified to be her teacher.
Ye Futian most likely had some agenda for accepting her as a disciple. He most likely wanted to gain access to her force. However, winning over Ye Futian was the wish of many large forces. By becoming Ye Futian's disciple, Xiao Clan would be inextricably linked with Ye Futian.
Ye Futian smiled. As expected of the daughter of a large clan, she did not hold back.
"As your master, I will teach you a magnum opus level cultivation method. You must practice and comprehend it well," Ye Futian said. From his glabella, a light of divine spirit shone towards Xiao Muyu. Xiao Muyu closed her beautiful eyes and quietly received all of this.
Not long after, both of them opened their eyes. Ye Futian said, "These next few days, you should head over to Tianshen Academy to train. Your master needs to prepare a grand matrix. I will need to expend a lot in order to do so. I will try to create an opportunity for you to prove your Way and forge a flawless Divine Wheel."
As he said this, Ye Futian placed his hand on Xiao Muyu's head. He advised, "Keep this in mind. do not disappoint your Master."
Xiao Muyu lifted her head and glared at Ye Futian. There was a look of suspicion in her eyes. Why was it that she could not bring herself to trust him?
An extremely huge cost?
Although this so-called magnum opus level cultivation method was very miraculous, it was not as unfathomable as Ye Futian had made it out to be.
Ye Futian looked at Xiao Muyu. What was with this girl's expression?
As he thought of this, his hand was still caressing Xiao Muyu's head. Since she was his disciple, as her master, Ye Futian naturally could touch her head.
Xiao Muyu gritted her teeth. She felt as though she had been tricked.
"Disciple will certainly not fail to live up to Master's expectations," Xiao Muyu said through gritted teeth. "If there is nothing else, I will go and train first."
"Go ahead. Master believes in you," Ye Futian said as he patted Xiao Muyu's shoulder.
Xiao Muyu fled.
She felt as though she had signed a deal with a devil...
"This disciple is not bad. Her level of comprehension is high," Ye Futian said as he watched Xiao Muyu's leaving silhouette. From this day onwards, he was also a person who had a disciple.
Seemingly noticing something, Ye Futian's gaze shifted. He saw Xia Qingyuan looking at him with a forced smile.
"Is there anything you need, Princess?" Ye Futian asked.
Xia Qingyuan was even more angered when she saw Ye Futian acting foolish. This b*stard actually acted ignorantly after having achieved his goal. He even managed to kidnap a beautiful female disciple.
"Shameless," Xia Qingyuan muttered in a low voice. She then turned and left.
Ye Futian watched her leave. She must have been jealous!
