Chapter 4: Pave My Own Path
“May I dare to ask for Senior’s name?” Ye Xuan suddenly asked as he kept the jade bottle.
Before he could finish speaking, Ye Zhang shouted out, “Ye Xuan, don’t be rude!”
“Hehe, this kid is quite bold.” The old man glanced at Ye Zhang and said, “This old man is called Yu Jin, protector of the Heaven Origin Sect.”
Heaven Origin Sect!
When this name entered the ears of everyone present, it caused them to be stunned. They were not shocked, but felt astonished because they had never heard of this sect before.
The Elder did not intend to explain either. He said, “Brat, the triple betrothal gift has already been withdrawn and the marriage contract has already been torn apart. In that case, Miss Lin Xue’er has nothing to do with you.”
“Yes, Senior!” Ye Xuan said respectfully.
“In the future, you will know that cancelling this engagement will bring great benefits to you.” Yu Jin said casually. He knew that Ye Xuan would not understand, so he said, “Miss Lin Xue’er, being taken in as a disciple by our Heaven Origin Sect’s Elder, her achievements in the future will far surpass everyone here. Not only that, even the overlord of this region, the Splitting Cloud Sect, will not be able to compare to her. From now on, Miss Lin Xue’er will definitely have many suitors. If they find out that Lin Xue’er is engaged, not to mention your Ye Clan , even the entire Cloud Merge City will be destroyed!”
When the old man’s voice faded, everyone present sucked in a breath of cold air. Just what background did the Heaven Origin Sect have? Could it be that they were even stronger than the Profound Yang Empire?
“Alright, now that the marriage contract has been broken, I won’t stay any longer ….” The old man stood up and prepared to leave.
Ye Xuan also cupped his fists. “Goodbye, Senior!”
“Haha, goodbye. We won’t meet again.” The old man laughed out loud. “I have heard about your matters before, you have suddenly lost all your cultivation and became a cripple. Although there is a precious Dan in my Heaven & Earth Ring that can help you recover, this Dan is extremely precious. Moreover, your talent can be found everywhere in Splitting Cloud Sect. Furthermore, you can’t even be compared to a service disciple in the Heaven Origin Sect. Therefore, we will not meet again.”
“Oh? Senior, how can you be so sure? ” Ye Xuan suddenly raised his head.
“Of course I am sure. Do you really think you can come to my Heaven Origin Sect?” The old man turned and looked at Ye Xuan.
“Then, senior shall wait and see!” Ye Xuan squinted his eyes. After he received the bottle of Spirit Gathering Pills, he had a strong premonition that this time, he would definitely be able to recover his cultivation. This was because after the Spirit Pill appeared, the golden ball in his Dantian fiercely trembled for a moment.
“Although your talent is not high, your character suits my taste. Alright, if you are able to enter the Heaven Origin Sect, I will accept you as a true disciple!” Yu Jin said casually, then flicked his sleeves and left.
Lin Xue’er’s father, Lin Ming, also followed closely behind, leaving behind a group of stunned Ye Family higher-ups.
They did not expect the old man to be so easy-going, and even started to chat with Ye Xuan. If Ye Xuan could really enter the Heaven Origin Sect, this old man would fulfill his promise and accept Ye Xuan as his true disciple. But was that possible?
Right now, Ye Xuan had no cultivation at all, and even if he was able to recover his cultivation, he would at most be able to enter Splitting Cloud Sect. Furthermore, Heaven Origin Sect was a hundred times stronger the Splitting Cloud Sect, so no one knew where they were. Therefore, it was impossible for Ye Xuan to see the old man again.
After the old man and Lin Ming left, Ye Xuan turned around and spoke to Ye Zhang: “Uncle, these betrothal gifts will be my compensation. Also, if I am unable to recover my strength, Uncle, you must assign me to another city or town.”
“You want to leave the Ye Clan?” Ye Zhang could not react in time.
“That’s right. I plan leave Ye Clan, which means, from now on, I, Ye Xuan, am no longer a member of the Ye Clan in Cloud Merge City.” Ye Xuan nodded.
“What did you say?” Ye Zhang suddenly opened his eyes wide, he did not dare believe that Ye Xuan would actually say such a thing.
“Uncle, I’m saying that I have to leave Ye Clan. Please grant me that request!” Ye Xuan cupped his fists and said seriously.
“You…” Ye Zhang pointed at Ye Xuan, and was speechless for a moment. Now that Ye Xuan had obtained two precious Spirit Gathering Pills and suddenly wanted to leave the Ye Clan to establish his own path, this matter happened too quickly and he was unable to process it.
“Alright!” Before Ye Zhang could say anything, a Ye Clan Elder standing on the side said with a stern voice, “I agree!”
“I also agree. Since this boy wants to establish his own path, then let him be. He has no strength to reverse the situation.” The other elder nodded.
“That’s right. If an ordinary person like him manages our Ye Clan’s business, I’m afraid he won’t be able to manage it properly. Let him be.” The Third Elder agreed.
In the Ye Clan, there were only five high echelons: Ye Zhang and these four Elders. If something big were to happen, they would need to gather together and decide after voting. Right now, the three Elders had already agreed. Even if Ye Zhang and the remaining elders rejected, it would be of no use.
“Thank you for your help, Clan Elders. From today onwards, I, Ye Xuan, will have no relationship with the Ye Clan of Cloud Merge City. Today, I will move out of the Ye Clan!” Ye Xuan bowed and cupped his fists to the three clan Elders, and then quickly left.
At this time, the Furth Elder suddenly said, “This kid is acting strangely. He can’t be thinking that he has a chance to recover his strength, right?”
“How is this possible? He spent close to a million silver taels in his three days of cultivation and hasn’t shown any signs of recovering at all. How could a mere two million silver taels be enough to recover?”
“This kid probably has a grudge against us. We need him to be nurtured. Now that he has lost his cultivation, we can kick him away. He must have some grudges in his heart.”
“Could it be that we have to continue investing in him so that he can recover his strength? Don’t you understand the meaning behind that senior’s words? ”
“That’s right, that senior’s meaning is that Ye Xuan can recover his strength, but he will need a huge price to pay. This price is not something our Ye Clan can bear. Two mere Spirit Gathering Pills are absolutely impossible to obtain!”
Hearing the four clan elders’ conversation, Ye Zhang could only helplessly sigh. After all, Ye Xuan was his nephew, the son of his own biological brother.
His brother had left the Ye Clan for a few years and still hadn’t returned yet.
After leaving the Ye Clan’s main hall, Ye Xuan went straight back to his own residence. Right now, he had long been abandoned by the Ye Clan.
After that, he started packing his stuff.
At this moment, a beautiful figure suddenly flashed in.
“Young Master, why are you packing?” An elegant voice entered Ye Xuan’s ears. When Ye Xuan turned around, he realized that Liu’er had walked in.
