1849 Emotion

Heavenly Mandate Academy. The day was calm and quiet. It was as if nothing had happened earlier.

In a courtyard within the academy, two figures sat quietly on a bench. They leaned back on the bench and looked particularly relaxed.

"I heard something big happened outside. How come you still have time to sit here?" Hua Fengliu looked at Ye Futian and asked. He was spending his remaining days at the Heavenly Mandate Academy. His everyday life was very relaxed. He was also not all that aware of the things happening outside. No one told him about the things this time as well.

"Master, you are already quite old. Naturally, I should spend more time with you," answered Ye Futian with a chuckle.

"Are you cursing me right now?" Hua Fengliu asked.

"No, I would never dare to do so. With your current condition, Master, you will most certainly outlive this disciple of yours," Ye Futian replied with a laugh.

"Now, I do not have such a wild wish. You should be the one living longer." Hua Fengliu sighed. Ye Futian single-handedly founded the Heavenly Mandate Academy. Ever since he came here, several major incidents had occurred. Things had been going back and forth, and things never calmed down. He knew that Ye Futian was facing a lot of issues and was burdened with many responsibilities.

Being able to see Jieyu and how close and intimate Jieyu and Ye Futian had grown, Hua Fengliu had no regrets in his life. Nianyu had also been growing gradually. Nandou Wenyin, Tang Lan, and himself were all retired. If it were really possible, he did not mind living a few years less, as long as Ye Futian and the others could live in peace.

"Are there elders like you who talk about their disciples like you?" Ye Futian smiled wryly.

"Can't help it. You're too much of a trouble maker," said Hua Fengliul. While he said it casually, his words were immensely profound and meaningful. The one who understood Ye Futian most was most probably Hua Feng Liu.

Of course, it was just a reminder. He would not try to convince Ye Futian. It could not be helped as he was born extraordinary, so he had to face his fate one way or another.

"Sure, then if I, your disciple, am not around, you should remember to take good care of yourself," said Ye Futian as he shook his head and chuckled. Hua Fengliu glanced at Ye Futian after hearing his words and asked, "What are you going to do now?"

"Nothing much, I might just leave and will be gone for a while," answered Ye Futian.

"Making arrangements after ?" Hua Fengliu stared at Ye Futian. "Again?"

"..." Ye Futian was speechless. It seemed as if Hua Fengliu had developed some psychological trauma.

"Master, you are the person who is going to become the great emperor's father-in-law." Ye Futian looked at Hua Fengliu. However, Hua Fengliu kept staring into his eyes. His eyes had transformed from the earlier casual and lazy eyes into a pair of deep and piercing eyes, both of which stared straight at Ye Futian as if trying to see through him.

"I am not young anymore, so it is alright. You have only just found Jieyu not that long ago." Hua Fengliu looked at Ye Futian.

"Really, it is nothing to worry about," Ye Futian interrupted. Hearing the conversation between the two, Hua Jieyu and Nianyu walked over hand in hand. Hua Jieyu's beautiful eyes and gaze landed on Ye Futian. She did not speak, only gazing at him quietly.

Ye Futian extended his hands and pulled Jieyu closer to his side.

Hua Jieyu gently and docilely let herself be pulled to Ye Futian's side. She knelt and rested her head on Ye Futian's lap. The two of them had become incredibly intimate. After spending so many days and nights together, even if Hua Jieyu did not remember much, she still regarded Ye Futian and Hua Fengliu as closest to her, and to be more accurate, her only family.

It was just that she had no memories.

"Jieyu, if I am not here, you should still not go back to Brahma's Pure Sky to cultivate. Just stay in the Heavenly Mandate Academy. You can find granny if there are any issues. You can also reach out to the lord," Ye Futian said gently as he gently caressed Hua Jieyu's hair.

Hua Jieyue raised her head, and with her beautiful eyes, stared into Ye Futian's eyes. However, all she could see were Ye Futian's gentle smile and an extending her that reached and gently pinched at her delicate face that seemed as if it could break by the slightest of touches. Ye Futian thoroughly enjoyed heartwarming and loving moments like these.

However, it seemed as if Hua Jieyu did not feel it. She stared at him and said, "No. Where you go, I go."

Ye Futian felt a gentle and tender sensation in his heart as he heard Hua Jieyu's words. He kept a straight face and said, "Be good."

Hua Jieyu shook her head.

"Brother-in-law, you won't abandon Nianyu, right?" The young woman on the side stared with her eyes wide open. She was beautiful. The young woman was already a budding beauty. Her delicate and charming eyes stared at Ye Futian. She also understood what the conversation meant.

"So young but already so sophisticated." Ye Futian pulled the child over and said, "When I'm not here, you have to take good care of your sister and masteress, got it?"

"No." Nianyu shook her head. "I am still a child."

"..." Ye Futian stared at her upset eyes. He had no way to deal with her. The child was always the smartest, and the lord also liked her very much.

"It's fine too if you don't want to. You'll have to grow up eventually," said Ye Futian. Nianyu looked at Ye Futian with a slightly upset gaze and asked, "Brother-in-law, are you really going to abandon Nianyu and sister?"

"No way. I'll come back to find you guys once I've completed my task," replied Ye Futian gently, the ever-present gentle smile still hanging on his face. It was as if he was intentionally trying to not put any pressure on them.

"I will go and visit the other masters," Ye Futian said as he stood up. Hua Jieyu followed and got up though she did not let go of his hands. Nianyu imitated her and held onto Ye Futian's other hand.

Ye Futian smiled wryly; it was like having his wife on one side and a lover on the other.

"Alright, then. Both of you will come with me." Ye Futian brought the two of them with him and left the place. They arrived at Qi Xuangang and his group's residence.

Qi Xuangang and a few seniors were there. Feixue had also just returned after cultivating at Shen Luoxue's place. She was sitting beside Qi Xuangang.

Upon seeing Ye Futian's arrival, Yan Yuan and Nan Zhai, who were both cultivating on the side, also walked over. They smiled and shouted, "Younger brother!"

"Big brother, second brother." Ye Futian walked forward and then shouted at Qi Xuangang, "Master."

Qi Xuangang addressed Ye Futian and said, "Have a seat."

"I will." Ye Futian sat down. Jieyu sat quietly beside him. Nianyu, on the other hand, had gone to find Feixue, constantly calling "Sister Feixue" passionately.

"Master, do you remember our previous discussion about how the great path is boundless? However, right now, it is incredibly difficult to spread this teaching in the Nine Realms," said Ye Futian. Many people and factions did not want to see the Heavenly Mandate Academy rise to power.

Some were even pushing to have the Heavenly Mandate Academy dissolve and crumble.

"That is natural. Humans will naturally prioritize themselves and place their benefits first. Everything else comes after that. If you want to preach and spread our teachings all over the realms, it will most certainly affect the benefits of many. Even when Donghuang the Great conquered and united the world, he could not truly make the Divine Prefecture one. The Nine Realms has separate factions, and the Divine Prefecture is also most definitely the same. As such, what we want is most probably just an idealized concept that suits one region," said Qi Xuangang.

Ye Futian nodded. The world was too big. There were many practitioners, and every single one was different from another. As such, uniting everyone into one was not possible.

"Master, what kind of person do you think Donghuang the Great is?" Ye Futian asked.

"A man with talent and a bold vision. A one of a kind genius and the symbol of an era. A character like that is not someone whom I can easily judge," said Qi Xuangang. "And in terms of the person himself, I had never met him before, so, naturally, I do not know. However, from the records, he could be said to be a legend of an era."

"However, Emperor Ye Qing..." Ye Futian opened his mouth to speak.

"That is unclear. That period in the history of decades past is a secret of the Divine Prefecture. The people of the Original Realm knows even less about it. Perhaps it was a clash in their ideology, or perhaps it was some other reason," Qi Xuangang answered with a sigh. Both these emperors were symbols of an era and the start of another era.

However, Emperor Ye Qing fell while Donghuang the Great conquered the Divine Prefecture. It was a forbidden topic. They could not even get close to the truth.

Some had guessed that they were capable of suffering and going through difficulties together but did not share their wealth. The Divine Prefecture only needed one master; after all, such stories are unbelievably common and have taken place multiple times in history. However, Qi Xuangang felt that it might be due to other reasons. After all, the two emperors were never normal, to begin with.

Ye Futian nodded lightly. It was impossible to uncover this secret while he stayed in the Original Realm. He needed to get to the Divine Prefecture; moreover, he also needed to get into contact with someone at a higher level.

"Master, brothers, no matter what happens to the Heavenly Mandate Academy in the future, you have to cultivate calmly. If the Heavenly Mandate Academy is faced with a crisis in the future, please leave. The reason I founded the Heavenly Mandate Academy in the first place was to spread our ideology so that the Heavenly Mandate Realm can stand proud within the Nine Realms. However, it looks like the Nine Realms is getting more chaotic by the day. No one knows the future of the Heavenly Mandate Academy. If there is a time where it can no longer be maintained, just let it be," Ye Futian said.

Qi Xuangang looked at him. Yan Yuan and Nan Zhai also looked at him. A formless air flowed around Feixue.

"Feixue, stop trying to peek at me," Ye Futian smiled and said to Feixue while looking into her eyes. She could peek into him and see his real inner emotion.

"I have already felt it," said Feixue.

"..." Ye Futian forced a smile as he shook his head. This talent was seriously unbelievable.

"So, how am I feeling?" Ye Futian asked.

"In summary, no sadness and despair," answered Feixue with a gentle smile. Naturally, she knew what had happened, and for Ye Futian to show this emotion... Did this mean that he had a plan to deal with it?

"You are amazing," Ye Futian said with a chuckle.

"Do you plan to leave?" Yan Yuan asked Ye Futian.

"Perhaps," replied Ye Futian. "I will have to trouble older brothers to help take care of the master in the future... even though I did not really take care of him even when I am here."

"You don't have to worry about me," Qi Xuangang said to Ye Futian. "Do what you want to do. Just remember what I told you last time."

"Yes, I remember." Ye Futian nodded.

"Relax. We will take good care of ourselves," Qi Xuangang said again. Ye Futian nodded. He was not really all that worried about Qi Xuangang, to be honest. By now, everything was already on track. The only thing left was to destroy the Shen Clan to avenge his master.

"Then, younger brother will take my leave first," Ye Futian got up and excused himself. After that, he left the place.

After he left, Feixue gazed at his back and mumbled gently, "But there's a slight sense of reluctance to leave, worry and a tinge of sadness..."

Qi Xuangang gazed at Ye Futian's back. Perhaps Ye Futian was hiding something from them. However, he believed that Ye Futian would deal with it appropriately. By now, he was already a big shot who could influence the entire Original Realm. He had grown too much over these years!
