Ye Futian stepped forward into the void, and Helian You, who followed close behind him, trembled inwardly, quite shocked.
The cultivation of those interceptors was not any inferior to him, yet they were annihilated with a single sword strike. That Sword Will was conceived from the Great Path, suspended above Ye Futian's head. It was as if anyone else who dared to stop him again would certainly be killed.
This display deterred any rash act from those Renhuang who were hiding in the distant crowd. They retracted their aura, staring at Ye Futian in total shock.
With no survivor under the sword, who dared to stop him now?
Behind him, the people above the tavern also watched with a stunned look. Liu Dongge looked at Ye Futian, and his heart was greatly disturbed. He had wanted to control Ye Futian, but how could that be possible under such a condition?
Who could make Ye Futian do anything?
At this moment, Ye Futian looked back at Liu Dongge and said, "Aren't we going? Why are you still sitting there?"
Liu Dongge's eyes sharped slightly, and the currents of swordsmanship flowed between the heaven and the earth, as some Sword Will fell on him. At this moment, Liu Dongge didn't look too good; just who was controlling whom?
"Very well." Liu Dongge stood up with a gloomy face, then followed Ye Futian and went in the direction of Dongyuan Pavilion. He wanted to see just what was up Ye Futian and Emperor Helian's sleeves.
The other cultivators stood up and followed Ye Futian moving forward.
There was a lot of discussion in the city, and following their footsteps, a large and frantic crowd rushed toward Dongyuan Pavilion as well.
This tavern was not far from Dongyuan Pavilion, so the cultivators arrived very quickly.
In the sky above Dongyuan Pavilion, cultivators from all sides had appeared there, discussing in the void in front of Dongyuan Pavilion. They were the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion, Helian Emperor, and the others; all the cultivators from all six top forces were present.
They turned their attention to Ye Futian, who was coming at them. The Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion was standing straight in the void. His gaze swept toward Ye Futian and Liu Dongge. He wasn't under their control yet?
"Our little friend is here," the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion said, seemed to be quite familiar with Ye Futian.
Ye Futian raised his head and glanced at him nonchalantly, saying, "I came to ask the Pavilion Master to vacate."
The pupils of the Pavilion Master contracted slightly, but Ye Futian continued, "I don't assume that Pavilion Master Liu will refuse the request?"
Before he could speak, he heard Yang Dongqing talking next to him, "Our friend was appointed by the founder of Dongyuan Pavilion as someone who could take charge of Dongyuan Pavilion. Since he had spoken, the Pavilion Master Liu will naturally not refuse or violate the will of the founder."
"Mmm," Emperor Helian nodded and said, "Pavilion Master Liu has been in charge of Dongyuan Pavilion for some years. Now that its real master has been found, Pavilion Master Liu ought to vacate the position to facilitate the transition. The Helian Clan supports Ye Futian as the new Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion."
"Pavilion Master Liu has been in charge of Dongyuan Pavilion for many years, and he has worked hard to cultivate countless excellent figures and made great contributions. Although Dongyuan Pavilion had been founded centuries ago, it has established its own rules over the years, and the changing of guards shouldn't be done with just a few words. Furthermore, our friend's cultivation is still a bit weaker and may not be able to take on such an important task. Why not just wait a few more years?" Before the Pavilion Master Liu had a chance to speak, the leader of Donglin Clan piped up. He and Pavilion Master Liu were allies and would clearly be on his side.
"Brother Donglin," said the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion, "I am not a greedy person who can't let go of the position of the pavilion master. Since it was appointed by the founder of the pavilion, and our friend desires the position at Dongyuan Pavilion, I am willing to vacate and let our little friend Ye Futian to be the new Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion."
"Pavilion Master Liu is much too indulgent," the leader of Donglin Clan complimented him.
Below, all the mighty cultivators were looking over that way with a curious expression. Could it be that the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion was really willing to give up his position this time?
"Pavilion Master Liu's attitude is admirable." Emperor Helian said with a smile. "If this is the case, then Ye Futian will be in charge of Dongyuan Pavilion in the future. Please withdraw the forces from Dongyuan Pavilion."
Upon hearing the words of Emperor Helian, the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion raised his brows and said, "Helian, although I am willing to vacate, I have been in charge of Dongyuan Pavilion for many years, and no one knows more about Dongyuan Pavilion better than me. The forces at Dongyuan Pavilion has always centered on the Pavilion itself and regarding it as a holy land; they are all part of this place. What do you mean by withdrawing?"
"Don't you think the forces should withdraw?" Emperor Helian asked.
"Our friend's cultivation is not yet enough and would require assistance. The rest of the cultivators in Dongyuan Pavilion and I have been here much longer, and we know how everything operates here and could assist the transition for some years until Ye Futian can completely take over Dongyuan Pavilion," said Pavilion Master Liu.
There was no reason for him to continue to resist the demand for him to vacate, so he would acquiesce strategically and allow Ye Futian to prevail for the moment.
However, even if Ye Futian assumed the control as Pavilion Master, the real control of Dongyuan Pavilion would still be firmly in his hands.
As such, what excuse did these people have to expel them?
"What do you think?" Emperor Helian looked at Ye Futian and asked, all the while sneering inside secretly. No way could this guy let this go so easily.
"Dongyuan Pavilion is a library and a place for preaching; what need do you have for forces?" Ye Futian said, "Creating forces and principalities is the beginning of selfishness. I don't need it."
Outside of Dongyuan Pavilion, many looked at those voices that could be heard from the void. Everyone was expectant when they heard Ye Futian's words.
Indeed, as soon as one established one's own principality, inevitably, there would be selfishness, such was the case with the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion. Anyone who wanted to cultivate in Dongyuan Pavilion would need to pass his assessment, and those with outstanding talents would need to become his disciples first.
"That's right." Emperor Helian said with a smile. "Dongyuan Pavilion is a holy land and shouldn't attract too much trouble. If protection is required, I will do whatever I can."
"So, Pavilion Master Liu no longer need to worry about Dongyuan Pavilion," Emperor Helian said with a smile.
The Pavilion Master of the Dongyuan Pavilion looked at Emperor Helian, and then at Ye Futian. His expression gradually grew grim. Next to him, the leader of Donglin Clan snorted and said sarcastically, "Is this Emperor Helian and Master Yang's attempt to seize Pavilion Master Liu's position by someone else's hand?"
"All this is no more than an excuse."
"Donglin." The master of Dongyuan Pavilion called out and continued, "Over the years, I have done all that I can to protect Dongyuan Pavilion. All the cultivators at Dongyuan Pavilion and myself have a special feeling toward Dongyuan Pavilion, and it is a place of great significance to me. Now, I am willing to vacate the position as the Pavilion Master, but isn't it kind of inappropriate for you to team up with Helian and the others to chase me off Dongyuan Pavilion?"
"Perhaps you have been deceived or tempted?" The leader of Donglin clan said sarcastically, "I heard that the eldest princess is quite close to him these days. The eldest princess is outstanding in appearance with an outstanding spiritual talent to boot. I'm afraid few men could have resisted her."
"The eldest princess has beauty and wisdom. She is much better than anyone coming out of your Donglin Clan." Ye Futian looked at the other and said, "Previously, below Dongyuan Pavilion, there was some woman who barked about not allowing me to set foot on Dongyuan Pavilion. She was from your Donglin Clan, right?"
Behind Ye Futian, that woman was standing not far from Liu Dongge. Seeing that Ye Futian had mentioned her, her expression suddenly turned to one of embarrassment.
She was Donglin Qiuyi, a daughter from Donglin Clan.
The leader of Donglin clan stared at Ye Futian and said coldly, "Although you have peerless talent, you are way too arrogant and have no respect for anyone. You dared to kill the cultivators in Dongyuan Pavilion, and though you made the spirit to appear upon the statue, the elders saw only your talent and not your characters. If you are in charge of Dongyuan Pavilion with such conduct, it will be a true disaster. I don't think it is necessary for Pavilion Master Liu to vacate his position."
This time, the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion was silent and did not say anything, as if quietly acknowledged those words.
"According to you, he should just stand there and let the cultivators of Dongyuan Pavilion assault him? If he were not strong enough, with the young Pavilion Master there, he would never be able to cultivate in the Dongyuan Pavilion." Emperor Helian continued, "In the past few years, there were probably many such geniuses who have been missed because of this and cannot enter Dongyuan Pavilion."
"What do both of you think?" At this moment, Emperor Helian looked at the leaders of the two forces, who had not yet spoken.
They were the cultivators from Hanging Sword Peak and the Beigong Family.
They had previously persuaded one of the two major forces to stand on their side.
The summit lord of Hanging Sword Peak was carrying a sword on his back, clad in a long flowy robe, appeared rather otherworldly, with an ethereal temperament. He looked to be about 50, with a long beard and an extraordinary aura.
"The position of Pavilion Master at Dongyuan Pavilion is no trifling matter. If Pavilion Master Liu is willing to vacate, I feel that the transition will still take some time," The summit lord of Hanging Sword Peak said, standing on the side of the Dongyuan Pavilion. Emperor Helian narrowed his eyes as he watched what had transpired.
Previously, the Hanging Sword Peak had maintained its neutral stance and determined not to intervene. Now, it seemed that he had been persuaded by the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion. Perhaps he had been promised a great reward.
So now it seemed that the forces on the two sides were evenly matched.
"Where is Master of Beigong?" Emperor Helian asked. the Master of Beigong had promised them.
The Master of Beigong was a middle-aged man. He was unusually handsome and extraordinary with a somewhat refined temperament, which was soothing to look at. He looked at Emperor Helian and said with a smile, "I can't make heads and tails about anything regarding this matter, so I am not going to interfere; I will support whoever serves as the Pavilion Master."
When Emperor Helian heard his words, his eyes sharped slightly, and stared at the other. The Master of Beigong did not look at Emperor Helian. It was as if he were intentionally avoiding his gaze.
This was different from what they had said to him before.
As such, the other party had three major forces, and they only had two; it would be frightfully difficult to shake the other party in any meaningful ways.
The Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion was sure of himself and looked on all that happened casually as if he had already known. The leader of the Donglin clan looked at Emperor Helian with a sneer, along with some contempt in his eyes. Did they think that only they know how to set things up?
This time, in order to win over the two major forces, they had paid a considerable price.
He wanted to see just how, with Helian Emperor and Yang Dongqing alone, could they support Ye Futian's claim to become the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion.
Ye Futian watched all this quietly and looking at the crowd. He said, "Why do I need to transition as the Pavilion Master?"
