Seeing how Lan Yue looked when she turned to ask the question, most of the men present were struck with a bout of dizziness because she was too beautiful.

There were not many beauties like Lan Yue. Amongst the many beauties that Fang Xingjian had met before, only Audrey, from the Northern Ice Region, had a beauty that could be compared to Lan Yue's.

Therefore, upon hearing Lan Yue's question, a few men immediately fought to be the first to answer, "Yes, yes, yes."

"This is the Myriad Stars Palace."

"What matter does Miss have to be coming to the Myriad Stars Palace?"

"My uncle is a disciple of the Myriad Stars Palace. I might be able to help you."

It was a pity that Lan Yue did not even bother to throw a look in their direction. She looked at Fang Xingjian and said in a very docile manner, "This place should be right." The way she treated Fang Xingjian lovingly was completely different from how she had acted coldly to the others. This made the others even more dissatisfied with Fang Xingjian.

Fang Xingjian nodded and said, "Let's go up and take a look." He then headed toward the Myriad Stars Palace's direction.

Lan Yue said with some hesitation, "Walk up? Sir... Xingjian, aren't we going to notify them of our arrival first?"

Fang Xingjian seemed to exude a faint indifference aura that had an increasingly vague feeling. He said nonchalantly, "It's too much trouble to give my name right from the start. Let's take a look at how things go first."

Lan Yue was slightly stunned, but she sooned got over it and threw a woeful look toward the Myriad Stars Palace. For Fang Xingjian to be heading in directly without giving his name, the Myriad Stars Palace was really in for it now.

Only someone who had Fang Xingjian's power and reputation could do something like this. If ordinary people were to do this, they would probably be killed by the Myriad Stars Palace immediately.

Lan Yue shook her head and followed Fang Xingjian as he headed for the entrance to the Myriad Stars Palace. She even changed her appearance slightly, from the tip of her nose, corners of her eyes, and down to her lips. Although the changes did not seem to be much, no one would be able to recognize her as Lan Yue now.

It was because a hint of eerie joy suddenly rose in her heart. Thinking of how their arch enemy, the Myriad Stars Palace, was going to be dealt a blow by Fang Xingjian... Well, it was not a bad thing.

However, they had not taken that many steps before someone who appeared to be a refined gentlemen stood in their way. The man was wearing a set of black and red formal attire. Each of his buttons and each ring he wore exuded a dignified feeling. His short black hair was combed neatly.

He walked up to Fang Xingjian and bowed with an aristocrat's formality. Wearing a graceful and polite smile, he looked at Lan Yue and said, "Beautiful young miss, the Myriad Stars Palace isn't a place to barge in recklessly. You must queue and wait to be called upon before you can enter. My uncle is the third generation disciple of the Myriad Stars Palace. What matter do you have to attend to? I might be able to offer some help."

After the man said his piece, he continued to wear a superior and confident smile, trying hard to show off his aristocratic flair. He focused all of his attention onto Lan Yue.

'It's probably impossible to encounter another beauty of such a level in this lifetime.' He threw Fang Xingjian a glance from the corner of his eyes, and a sense of superiority grew in his heart. 'Even a guy like this can establish a good relationship with this beauty. My advantage can only be greater.'

However, just as he was thinking this, Lan Yue threw him a cold glance and said, "Scram."

The aristocrat young man was stunned, as if he was not able to react to Lan Yue's change.

"Miss, you might have misunderstood something." After a short moment later, the aristocrat young man frowned. "I'm only giving you a kind reminder. Why do you have to treat me with such a bad attitude?"

Just then, Fang Xingjian suddenly turned in slight surprise as he looked toward the side at the golden-haired young lady named Maria. A hint of strange glow flashed in his eyes, and it was as if his eyes were gemstones that had a colored glaze to it.

Under Lan Yue's astonished gaze, Fang Xingjian slowly walked up to Maria and touched her head.

Throughout the entire process, an aura that was like the flow of the natural law and the vast universe extended out in the area. Everything seemed very natural.

Everyone looked at this scene, stunned. As if everything was natural, no one stood out to stop him, not even Maria's father.

Fang Xingjian looked at the stunned Maria and suddenly asked, "Young lady, are you interested to be my student?"

"Huh?" After Fang Xingjian threw out his question, that vast aura immediately dissipated, and Maria seemed to regain her senses. She immediately shook her head and said, "No way, no way. I'm here to become a disciple of the Myriad Stars Palace. I can't be your student."

Maria's father, who was next to her, also regained his senses. Fang Xingjian and Lan Yue did not look like ordinary people. However, to this middle-aged man, how could they be compared with the Myriad Stars Palace no matter how amazing this couple was? Therefore, he rejected Fang Xingjian's offer politely yet firmly, "Mister, our apologies. Maria has already made a promise with her teacher in the Myriad Stars Palace. She won't be able to become your student."

Fang Xingjian shook his head, "It's fine. It's just a sudden thought." Fang Xingjian was not wrong to say that, He had been struck suddenly by the Sudden Inspiration and followed his feeling in wanting to take Maria as his disciple.

As for what the reason was and what benefit it would bring, he was not able to put a word to it.

Ever since he had the Sudden Inspiration ability, Fang Xingjian had encountered many of such situations. In some cases, he would be able to sense the concrete situation, while in others, he would only have a vague feeling. However, he tended to follow his feelings. Additionally, there was generally no harm done.

Lan Yue walked up next to Fang Xingjian, continuously scanning Maria's physical body with her martial will. It was as if she was curious what was it about this little girl that Fang Xingjian would want to take the initiative to accept her as his disciple.

Hearing Maria's and the middle-aged man's replies, Lan Yue shook her head, feeling that these two people were truly blind to ignore the treasure cove before them.

Hearing this, the aristocratic young master smirked, "Hehe, there are really all kinds of swindlers in this world these days. She is a genius who is going to enter the Myriad Stars Palace. Don't destroy her future."

Fang Xingjian looked at that aristocratic young master, who glared back without showing any signs of weakness. "Why, is what I said wrong? You still want to steal disciples from the Myriad Stars Palace? What audacity." The young master vented all of his fury from the contempt that Lan Yue had shown him earlier onto Fang Xingjian.

Just then, an aged female voice came from the mountains.

"That's right. You're really audacious to be wanting to steal a disciple from our Myriad Stars Palace."

When the first word was spoken, everything sounded very distant and vague. However, when the last word was spoken, it sounded as if the person was right before them. A middle-aged lady, who wore blue a robe which had countless silver sparkling light spots on it that looked just like starlight, landed amidst strong gales.

Maria's father spoke up in great surprise, "Mistress Crystal, you're here? Maria, quickly greet the Mistress."

Maria nodded with some reservations.
