“Hong Ye, what happened?” asked Hua Jieyu.
Hong Ye looked at Hua Jieyu and said, “Master, previously, you secretly asked me about what Saint Zhenchan’s underlings were up to… Now, Saint Zhenchan has issued an order to investigate all mansions and cities in Six Desires Heavens. Moreover, a bounty is offered to anyone among the top forces of various regions who can identify the two fiends who instigated the fight between Lord Six Desires and Lord Initial Zen. The whistle-blower is required to reveal their images too.”
As she said this, Hong Ye paused and looked at Hua Jieyu and Ye Futian. She then asked, “Master, did the two of you really instigate the fight between the two Lords a few months ago? Were you the ones who caused the death of the two Lords when the four of them fought among themselves?”
“The bounty offered by Saint Zhenchan is surely an eye-watering amount. Why have you come to inform us to leave instead of reporting our whereabouts to him and claiming the bounty?” Ye Futian asked. There was pain hidden in Hong Ye’s eyes when she looked at him. Then, she looked at Hua Jieyu and explained, “Wouldn’t I be betraying my sect if I expose the whereabouts of Master? I can’t do that.”
Ye Futian continued, “Since you believe the rumors about both of us instigating the fight among the four Lords, have you considered this – what bargaining chip did we have that was great enough to incite them to war? Furthermore, the reason was tempting enough to cause the two of them to kill each other.” Ye Futian’s question caused Hong Ye to be stunned. She was puzzled. She looked at him and asked, “What was it?”
Ye Futian explained, “I’m not a cultivator from your world. I’m from another world. I was detained in the divine mountain by Lord Six Desires due to the treasures I possessed. After the other three Lords learned about what happened, they were blinded by greed as well. They went to Lord Six Desires and demanded he give them the treasures. This was the cause of the fight. I have indeed instigated the fight among the four Lords. However, if I did not do so, I would have been at their mercy. I would not have survived.” His words shocked Hong Ye. Ye Futian glanced at Hua Jieyu and noticed that she remained calm.
“So that’s why. In that case, their greed for treasure resulted in the war. Then, for Saint Zhenchan to spare no expense to search and offer a bounty for finding you means…” mumbled Hong Ye as she suddenly understood. She looked at Hua Jieyu and Ye Futian and said, “Master, now the people in the city have seen both of your portraits. There is no way for you to leave. What should we do?”
“That won’t be a problem,” said Ye Futian. “Go and tell them that the two of us are here.”
Hong Ye was stunned. She looked at Ye Futian and then at Hua Jieyu. She did not comprehend.
“Go,” instructed Hua Jieyu.
“Master.,” replied Hong Ye as she stared at her.
Hua Jieyu explained to Hong Ye, “If we do not sever the ties between us, we will only get you involved. Hong Ye, do not mention to others that you are my disciple. Aside from you, your father has also seen us, so we will certainly be exposed. However, he will not betray you. Go and inform them of our location. You might be able to claim the bounty. This is the last thing I can do for you as your master.” Her voice was also exceptionally calm.
“No, I will go find my father. If he knows that you have taken me as your disciple, he will not sell you out, Master,” said Hong Ye.
Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu gazed at her. She was still too young.
Before personal gain as well as life or death, what did ties like this amount to?
They barely knew each other. Why would her father risk his life for them?
“Hong Ye,” Ye Futian continued, “don’t worry. Even if you reveal our location, we can still escape. The people of the city cannot keep us here. Otherwise, how did we escape from the war of the Six Desires Heavenly Palace? Since things are bound to happen, there is no need to prevent them from occurring. Asking you to do this is to protect you. You don’t wish to make us feel guilty, right?”
Hong Ye glanced back at Hua Jieyu. Hua Jieyu nodded and said, “Go. We will be fine.”
Seeing that Hong Ye was still hesitating, Hua Jieyu sternly ordered, “As your master, I command you to go.”
Hong Ye’s eyes were slightly red. She then nodded her head and replied, “Yes, Master.”
As she said this, she turned and left.
After Hong Ye left, the divine body of Shenjia the Great Emperor appeared. As he looked at it, Ye Futian mumbled, “I wonder when I can fight without needing to rely on this.”
“The opponents that you encountered are all cultivators who have experienced the divine tribulation of the Great Path. When you reach the peak of the Renhuang Plane, you might be able to forgo relying on the divine body,” said Hua Jieyu. She only said that it was a possibility. Even if he did so, the opponents Ye Futian faced were still top figures who survived the second stage of the divine tribulation.
Not long after, Ye Futian sensed that many powerful auras were approaching them from all directions. Right then, the formless wave had already disappeared. He no longer hid their auras. Wills swept over and scanned over their figures rudely.
In the sky, the silhouettes of many cultivators continued to appear. Many of them were top-tier Renhuangs. After getting news of their location, they rushed over immediately. Saint Zhenchan’s reward was too irresistible. No one could remain unfazed by it.
However, many people did not know of Ye Futian’s ability. The exact details of the war of the Six Desires Heavenly Palace had been sealed away. Only some details, just like what Hong Ye knew, were common knowledge. There were not many who were aware of the whole story of the incident.
Hong Ye was also among the crowd in the distance. She stood behind her father and looked towards Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu. She felt a pang of guilt, and her eyes were red. She had not managed to expose them. The one who had done so was her father, just like Ye Futian had predicted.
Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu did not look at Hong Ye. Ye Futian declared, “Anyone who stands in our way will be killed without any mercy.”
As he said this, the crowd saw a divine body float up into the sky. Hua Jieyu was beside the divine body. A terrifying aura emanated from it, and the Great Path rumbled. This caused the hearts of the surrounding cultivators to tremble.
“Let’s go,” Ye Futian said. Then, both of them stepped up into the sky and left the place.
When the cultivators saw them leaving, they were all actually somewhat hesitant. They didn’t dare attack them right away.
“Hold them off. We only need to wait until the Lord’s underlings arrive,” a deep and powerful voice sounded. A cultivator who was at the peak of the Renhuang Plane took a step forward and charged up into the air. Many ancient golden clocks plummeted from the sky, attempting to seal off the space and block Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu from leaving.
Ye Futian raised his head and glanced at the clocks. Dong! Dong! The sound of clocks ringing could be heard continuously. Divine light burst forth as all the clocks were shattered into pieces. With a flash, the body of Shenjia the Great Emperor transformed into a beam of golden light and pierced the sky.
Dong! The facial expression of the cultivator who was at the peak of the Renhuang Plane turned ugly. An enormous ancient clock appeared to protect him. However, the divine light directly penetrated the clock. The ancient clock crumbled, and the cultivator shook violently. Then, he turned into countless specks of light of the Great Path and dissipated. He had perished.
“This…” Those who saw this scene all felt their hearts tremble. Ye Futian and Hua Jieyu immediately traversed through the sky and left. For a moment, no one actually dared to get in their way!
