Ye Futian’s understanding was different from that of Shangguan Qiuye. For the Island Lord of Eastern Deity Island to conferred the title of Goddess just to let that Goddess follow him in cultivation was all but acknowledged his status.
However, for a Goddess to follow him might also be a way to keep tabs on him?
However, he had a good impression of Baimu. They had picked the right person, so he had no reason to refuse her. He nodded and said, “If the Goddess doesn’t object, I would have no reason to decline.”
“Then it’s settled. From now on, I will cultivate in this palace. If Pavilion Master Ye has any instructions, just let me know,” Baimu said. Ye Futian nodded and began to understand the intention of the Island Lord.
She wanted to use Baimu to connect him to Eastern Deity Island.
“Thank you, Goddess.” Ye Futian smiled and nodded once he understood the intention, while Shangguan Qiuye beside him blinked and wondered if that was all?
He was not humble at all… shameless to the extreme.
Shangguan Qiuye still thought that Eastern Deity Island was using Baimu to win Ye Futian over. She didn’t know that Ye Futian had already inherited from the Supreme Deity Donglai, swallowed the elixir of Eastern Deity Island, and was now the Second Island Lord of Eastern Deity Island.
“Pavilion Master Ye need not address me as Goddess anymore, just call me by my name,” Baimu said.
“Very well,” Ye Futian nodded. “Baimu, Eastern Deity Island should have a place for alchemy, right?”
“Mmm,” Baimu nodded. Eastern Deity Island was created by Supreme Deity Donglai, who was a master-level alchemist. Eastern Deity Island was steeped in alchemy, and many of its people were experts in the art of alchemy.
“Are you good at it?” Ye Futian asked.
Baimu shook her head. “I am not gifted in alchemy. Alchemy requires a strong comprehension of the Great Path. Any good alchemist could induce movements from the Flowering Tree.”
“So, a powerful alchemist must have a strong talent for cultivation?” Ye Futian asked, and Baimu nodded. This was also the reason why a powerful alchemist was extremely rare. For a person with outstanding talent, it was enough to improve his strength through cultivation; there was no need to be distracted by alchemy.
“If so, I should have great potential for it. When you have time, you can take me to observe the alchemy in action here. Maybe I have a hidden talent in alchemy,” Ye Futian said with a smile. Baimu knew the inside story and understood the reason behind Ye Futian’s request to observe.
Having inherited everything from Supreme Deity Donglai, Ye Futian now had a real chance to become a top master alchemist, provided that he was willing to spend time and energy on it.
“When will Eastern Deity Island be closed?” Ye Futian asked.
“It will be closed in three days. By then, all the cultivators will leave Eastern Deity Island,” Baimu said, as Ye Futian nodded in acknowledgment. Once Eastern Deity Island closed, the news would be spread to the outside, and all of the Penglai Continent would know what happened to Jun Qiuyan.
Of course, this did not rule out the possibility that the other party already knew of it, and this possibility was very high. After all, there were indeed such magical treasures in the world of cultivation. He and Xia Qingyuan owned a Zimu Yuanyang Mirror, and it was highly probable that the news had already leaked out.
But Jun Qiuyan was in his hands, so the cultivators from the Jun family should not dare to provoke him.
However, now was the time to consider the next step.
Before that, they must first collect the Divine Fire of Wutong.
“Zi Feng, shall we go to Wutong Island now?” Ye Futian said to the phoenix that was not far away.
Obviously, the two had reached an agreement to let Ye Futian take ownership of the Divine Fire of Wutong.
“Yes,” Zi Feng nodded, and the two walked away together. Shangguan Qiuye, Baimu, and the others looked at them in amazement; what were they going to do on Wutong Island?
“Wait for the Little Condor…”
A voice came from behind, “Condor sama” spread his wings to catch up; if he didn’t, he would be left behind.
Before long, they appeared on Wutong Island together. Although Zi Feng was not there, the Wutong Divine Tree was still on the island. No one had been able to take away the Wutong divine flame. This was a divine fire, and it was a divine fire of the Great Path conceived by the phoenix. It was possible to leverage its power to cultivate, but impossible to refine it for one’s own possession, at least there was no one strong enough yet in Eastern Deity Island to do so.
However, Ye Futian claimed he had a way.
“Leave Wutong Island immediately.” Zi Feng swooped down, her red dress was brilliant, and a sudden burst of overwhelming pressure bloomed from her. An illusion of the divine phoenix appeared on her body, sheltering the sky and the sun. The divine flame enveloped the entire Wutong Island so that all the Wutong trees on the island swayed, as traces of divine flames diffused into the atmosphere.
In just an instant, the temperature of Wutong Island suddenly rose. With the Wutong Divine Tree as the center, wisps of elusive flames lingered. The cultivators on the island glanced at Zi Feng and knew that this was probably the master of Wutong Island, and they retreated toward the void.
Ye Futian and the Little Condor swooped down and landed next to the Wutong Divine Tree. Ye Futian walked under the Wutong tree and sat down in a cross-legged pose.
Zi Feng was suspended above the Wutong Divine Tree, quietly watching Ye Futian, wondering how he could take away the Divine Fire of Wutong from the tree?
At this moment, she faintly perceived traces of invisible air currents that came from Ye Futian, covering the Wutong Divine Tree. At this moment, the power of the flaming Great Path above the divine tree was constantly flowing toward him. Caution flashed across Zi Feng’s beautiful eyes, and she became a little more serious.
At this moment, she was faintly aware that an independent area of the Great Path had appeared in this space, and the divine tree was shrouded within. In this area, there seemed to be invisible, ancient tree branches and leaves spreading, turning into the currents of the Great Path, infiltrated into the Wutong Divine Tree so that Ye Futian’s body and the Wutong Divine Tree became one, continuing to swallow and absorb the light of the divine flame.
The terrible divine brilliance was shining, and an indescribably blazing aura permeated the atmosphere. Divine Wutong Tree turned into the color of the flame as if a golden divine fire was burning had rendered Ye Futian’s entire body extremely radiant.
“Divine flame!” Little Condor retreated into the void. He couldn’t possibly withstand the power of this divine fire.
But even the power of the divine fire was still being absorbed by Ye Futian little by little, which caused the surprised look on Zi Feng’s face. Unless he could resonate with divine flame, anyone else who came in contact with the divine flame, such as herself, would be incinerated, body and soul.
This was also why the Wutong divine flame was still here though there was no one guarding it–because no one was able to take it away.
But why was Ye Futian not hurt by it?
Ye Futian’s body was lit up with the divine brilliance of the flame, sparkled without ceasing; his entire body was radiant. The divine fire flowed about his body, also under great coercion.
But even so, he didn’t stop what he was doing. The strength of the Shadow power that he encountered in the Shadow Realm center was far more terrifying than this Wutong divine flame, yet it was absorbed and swallowed by him. Today, it would be the same with this Wutong divine flame.
It was precisely because of the experience he had in the Shadow Realm that he could be this confident.
After a long while, the divine glory on the Divine Wutong Tree tree gradually dimmed, and the divine light inside Ye Futian’s body became even brighter. It was as if his entire body was bathed in the divine fire. He sat there cross-legged in cultivation, nor did he move.
At the same time, the flame aura on the entire Wutong Island became weakened, and the power of the Great Path gradually dissipated on this island.
“It had been swallowed,” Zi Feng stared at Ye Futian below. Although she had been watching, she still did not understand how Ye Futian had done it. She could only feel that Ye Futian was an expert at a mysterious power and that this power was strong enough to tolerate the divine fire of Wutong.
After some time had passed, the brilliance of the divine flame flowed over Ye Futian’s body. He stood up and exhaled a long breath, which actually turned into a frightful hot current.
Lifting his head, Ye Futian looked at Zi Feng and said with a smile, “It’s done.”
“Where is the divine flame?” Zi Feng looked at Ye Futian, her eyes wide.
Didn’t he say that he would help her to take it?
Where was the divine flame?
Could it be pocketed by this guy?
“Don’t worry.” Ye Futian saw Zi Feng’s expression and said with a smile, “Let’s go back.”
As he finished speaking, he left in a flash, leaving behind an empty Wutong Island.
After they left, many came to this side, and someone asked, “Who was that man?”
“Ye Liunian. He had already destroyed many opportunities of the Great Path, and they were all monopolized by him. Later, he breached the chessboard matrix and entered the Core Island. Now it seems that he may have been invited to cultivate on Eastern Deity Island and once again monopolize the opportunity on Wutong Island; how heartless,” someone said. It seemed that Ye Futian was already quite famous on Eastern Deity Island.
“Ye Liunian, the Pavilion Master of Dongyuan Pavilion, I have heard about him. He disabled Jun Qiuyan of his cultivation, slaughtered hundreds of cultivators from the Jun family of Penglai Continent; even cultivators of the Eighth Realm couldn’t escape fast enough. He is a ruthless man; who knows what will happen if he goes into the outside world,” someone next to him added.
It seemed that everyone knew all that had happened on Eastern Deity Island in the past few days.
After Ye Futian returned to Core Island, he continued to enjoy life, served daily with fine wine and delicacies, with more than one beauty by his side.
Not only him but even those who came with him, such as Emperor Helian and Beigong Ao, were all enjoying the most “luxurious” lifestyle. He even asked Baimu to get him some magical pellets on account of cultivation and shared them with those who were the closest to him.
Sometimes, he would even go and cultivate in alchemy.
Shangguan Qiuye watched all this, and her thoughts were tangled.
Even though Ye Futian’s talent was outstanding, and now he had entered Eastern Deity Island to cultivate, was there really a need for Eastern Deity Island to treat him so well?
Moreover, the life that this guy led in Eastern Deity Island was practically like that of a king, perfect beyond words.
Time seemed to go by very quickly. Finally, on this day, the journey to Eastern Deity Island was over. Eastern Deity Island invited several other geniuses who were on the island to stay and continue to cultivate there. At the same time, Eastern Deity Island opened up, and those cultivators who came for trials left successively. Some were happy, and some were sad.
But when the gates of Eastern Deity Island were opened, the whole of Penglai Continent was shaken. A battle occurred on Eastern Deity Island, which affected several top forces in Penglai Continent. Among them, many cultivators of the Jun family were slaughtered, and the great loss they suffered included their young master, Jun Qiuyan, who lost his cultivation.
This news caused a great sensation in an instant, so much so that even a mighty army descended on Penglai Deity Region!
