Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
It wasn’t a rare feeling for Ye Xiao. Powerful people always stared at others with that look. Ye Xiao had experienced the same look many times. He was used to it!
Ye Xiao looked up. With a peaceful look, he stared back at the man.
At this moment, the Seven Golden Lotuses had a weird feeling.
The two men actually had the same look.
It was calm, peaceful, smart, stable, and sharp!
One on the top, while the other on the floor.
It was exactly the same look.
It was impossible to tell which of them was at a higher position than the other.
How was that possible?
These two men had never met each other. Ye Xiao was much weaker than the man on the clouds. How could they have the same look while staring at each other?
Ye Hongchen seemed to move a bit.
Ye Xiao was shocked because Ye Hongchen had already got to him. He stared at Ye Xiao face to face. They were less than ten feet away from each other.
Ye Hongchen’s eyes kept looking at Ye Xiao.
Ye Xiao indifferently looked back.
Nobody knew why. Ye Xiao had thought a lot about his own family. He was sad about what clan he belonged to. As he stared at Ye Hongchen now, he was calm.
He wasn’t angry or sad, but he wasn’t happy either.
Ye Xiao looked at Ye Hongchen without emotions, as if Ye Hongchen was only a stranger to him!
“Follow me.” Ye Hongchen turned around and led the way.
Ye Xiao followed.
Jun Yinglian stayed where she was. She just watched Ye Xiao walk away. She felt that Ye Xiao was in sadness. She felt pain in the heart for him… ‘What is happening must be a pain to him!’
Jun Yinglian stayed with Ye Xiao for a long time. She knew him so well, especially the weakest part of him. Ye Xiao’s emotion was deeply hidden in his heart. No matter how casually he acted, there was pain in his heart. Jun Yinglian knew it!
“You are tremendously fast in cultivation improvement!” Ye Hongchen said.
“I am flattered.” Ye Xiao blandly said.
“Your mindset is stable. You calm down fast. That’s impressive.” Ye Hongchen said.
“That’s not right. I have been calm. I don’t need to be calm now.” Ye Xiao said.
Ye Hongchen smiled.
Where he was going, there were flowers and green grasses. The flowers moved away and made a path for him. As the two of them went over, the flowers moved back.
“From zero to what you have now, you have reached the fourth level of the Undead Stage. I can’t say I could do better.” Ye Hongchen slightly closed his eyes and said, “You must be the most talented man in the Ye Clan in hundreds of thousands of years!”
Ye Xiao indifferently said, “Master, are you going to blame me for stealing the name of your clan? Look. The Heaven’s Leaf is not the only Ye Clan.”
Ye Hongchen looked at Ye Xiao and didn’t say a word.
After a while, he said, “The Ye Clan existed before I was born. I am not the original ancestor of the Ye Clan. I just brought it up to the top of the world. The Heaven’s Leaf is from the Ye Clan. You, Ye Xiao, are from the Ye Clan too.”
Ye Xiao didn’t say a word and just listened.
“Do you know? When I fought the Glaze Sky, I didn’t lose.” Ye Hongchen said, “In fact, I was winning. I chose to give up and stay out of the world for a hundred thousand years. Do you know why I did that?”
Ye Xiao said, “There is a story about you in the Human Realm Upon Heavens. It says your failure is a pity, but you had to fail. I have collected information about that fight. I know that things weren’t as the story tells. You didn’t lose. I knew it. I am not surprised that you were winning.”
Ye Hongchen blandly said, “Oh? Can you tell why?”
“First, the Glaze Sky didn’t have the reaction that a winner should have. He is so eager for a second fight, which means he didn’t win. Only those who lose will look forward to a second fight. He needs a second chance to win his dignity back.” Ye Xiao said, “That’s what I see from his reaction. You two might be even in that fight.”
Ye Hongchen nodded and didn’t say anything.
“Second, you were a threat to the five Sky Kings. If you failed, you must be weakened. The Glaze Sky might not go after you again, but the other Sky Kings would never let you survive. After all, having one less great man in the world was better for them.”
Ye Hongchen nodded again.
“Two reasons are enough. You and your clan left the martial world in peace because you weren’t hurt. You didn’t lose the fight, but you gave up. In fact, you could win.” Ye Xiao said, “If they were going to kill you, they couldn’t. If they fought you together, at least one of them would die. Nobody wanted to die.
“You didn’t lose it, so you and your clan had the chance to stay out of the martial world in peace… The Seven Golden Lotuses stayed in the City of Chaos for one hundred thousand years, and none of the five Sky Kings dared to attack them. I think it is the same reason!”
Ye Xiao said, “However, you were winning the fight then why did you give up? I didn’t understand. Was there anybody in the world who could threaten you? Staying away from the martial world was definitely not a better option. You could have become the sixth Sky King! What you did wasn’t the best choice. In fact, it was wrong!”
Ye Hongchen seemed to feel comforted. He said, “In fact, before that fight began, I had never thought about leaving the martial world.”
