Chapter 1095: Making An Impressive Appearance
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Chu Yang was still in dreamland getting pummeled while holding his butt and crying out in pain when he was rudely awakened by the roar of the celebratory cannons.
Rolling awake, he muttered, “What a grand opening for my very first majestic appearance in the Upper Three Heaven!”
In one nimble motion, he put on his clothes and splashed his face with some icy water in the courtyard. He gazed at the overcast skies that looked as if it was going to snow.
He murmured to himself, “This one time I get to show off and even the heavens are going to snow in celebration!”
The hanging screen in the doorway lifted and Zi Xieqing walked out gracefully. She complained in annoyance, “Pig! The whole palace was shaking from your snoring the whole night.”
Chu Yang put on a stern face. “Big Sister Zi, you have to watch your words. Your image is that of an expert today.”
Zi Xieqing glanced at him and asked, “No early morning practice this morning?”
Chu Yang’s face fell miserably. “Big Sister, I still want to look good today, please don’t disfigure me.”
Zi Xieqing burst into giggles. “Fine, I’ll spare you today.” After saying that, she went off victoriously.
Chu Yang muttered a few choice words under his breath and continued to wash up.
The gates of the Orchard Palace opened and out came a little girl dressed fully in a snow-white sable fur coat — Chu Le’er. Her exquisite little face was hidden amongst the long fur of the coat, her inky black eyes darting about, lively and animated. She looked absolutely charming and adorable, like a spirited little fairy.
She was followed by a neatly-dressed Minister Chu.
Dressed in robes of black, his form was long and slender. With eyes like the bright stars of the universe, his hair was neatly combed with not even a strand out of place. A purple crystal hair crown sat atop his head elegantly, bringing out his attractive facial features and an outstanding handsomeness that was far beyond the average man!
His back was straight and his expression proud as he walked out, his hand resting upon the long sword at his waist. He had a lofty look in his eyes, his aura filled with an air of unbridled arrogance!
Chu Le’er, who had come out first, turned around and saw Chu Yang looking so solemn for the first time in her life. She couldn’t help but burst into a giggling fit.
“Stop laughing!” Chu Yang said sternly, “I had a hard time trying to keep a straight face, don’t make me laugh.”
“Hahaha…” Chu Le’er doubled over as she laughed even harder, close to rolling about on the ground.
Shortly after, Zi Xieqing, dressed in robes of white with her hair put up elegantly, walked out serenely.
She seemed to have a white glow around her, making her face difficult to see clearly. Regardless, she still wore a veil around her face. Her robes billowed in the wind as she walked, making one think that she was drifting amongst misty clouds instead.
She was filled with an air of mysterious power, dignified and pure, eminent and unapproachable!
Her eyes were calm and tranquil but whoever her glance landed on would feel as if their spirit was going to be turned to ice!
She came out quietly but the aura around her this moment made even Chu Yang and Chu Le’er, who already knew her well, not even dare to speak to her.
“Let’s go,” an indifferent Zi Xieqing said as she took the lead.
Chu Yang hurriedly pulled Chu Le’er along and followed after her. After turning the corner, they reached the main street.
The streets were bustling with people hurrying to and fro. But when the three appeared, for some reason that nobody understood, everyone naturally gave way to them.
How could Chu Yang not seize this opportunity when he had the full intention to borrow someone else’s authority and run wild?
Pulling Chu Le’er along, he puffed his chest out proudly and quickly caught up with Zi Xieqing, walking side by side with her.
With Chu Le’er on his right and Zi Xieqing on his left, Chu Yang who was in the middle actually became the main focus!
His demeanor turned haughty and arrogant at once as he looked loftily upon all!
They advanced quickly, a fierce and imposing aura emanating from them!
In a corner where no one could see, Zi Xieqing rolled her eyes.
This fellow was seriously shameless!
When they reached a larger intersection, Dong Wushang and the other two were already waiting there. When they saw Chu Yang who had the air of someone atop the world all around him approach them with such a majestic gait, the two brothers couldn’t help but rub their eyes in disbelief.
Damn, so Boss was already getting by so well in the Upper Three Heavens!
The three quickly made their way over when Chu Yang beckoned. He made the respective introductions. “These two are my brothers! The beefy and muscular one is Dong Wushang; the one skinny as a bird is Rui Butong. The last one is my sister-in-law. Wushang, Butong, this is Big Sister Zi and my little sister, Le’er.”
Dong Wushang and Rui Butong hastily paid their respects, to which Zi Xieqing briefly nodded in response. When she gave them a careful once-over, she couldn’t help but become greatly taken aback!
With Zi Xieqing’s level of cultivation and experience, she could naturally tell how extraordinary Dong Wushang and Rui Butong were, which was precisely why she was so shocked!
Where did Chu Yang come up with these brothers of his? They were no simple fellows!
Rui Butong was clearly a half-awakened phoenix!
And Dong Wushang, while human through and through, his bone composition and meridians had already evolved into Saber Bones and Saber Meridians!
It was apparent that in the future, Dong Wushang’s achievements would surely dazzle and shock the world!
The woman in black was also in a class of her own, with boundless prospects for her future!
When she was done assessing them, Zi Xieqing couldn’t help but commend him, “Chu Yang, these brothers of yours are quite something indeed.”
Chu Yang’s smile was filled with pride. “Of course, whose brothers do you think they are!”
Zi Xieqing smiled lightly in response. At the side, Rui Butong was talking to Chu Le’er. “Chu Le’er? Haha, you’re my Boss’ little sister, so that makes you my little sister too! I’ll call you Le’er from now on, okay?”
Chu Le’er’s eyes were wide as she said, “You really look like a bird…”
Dong Wushang and Mo Lei’er next to them were overcome with laughter at once.
Rui Butong’s expression was priceless. He said, “I’m just a little skinnier than most, I don’t really look like one. Don’t listen to your Big Brother’s nonsense, see, these arms, these legs, this physique… Which part looks like a bird?”
Chu Le’er took a good look and said conclusively, “You just really look like one!”
Tears streamed down Rui Butong’s face.
As they went on, Chu Yang and his party got bigger and bigger. Nangong Shifeng and his brothers joined them at the back, valiant and full of vigor. At the next juncture, Wan Renjie and his two brothers joined their ranks too.
And so the group got increasingly impressive.
Moments later, Wei Wuyan appeared, silent as a ghost, and quietly followed behind them.
The whole group made their way over, grandiose and ostentatious.
Everyone whom they passed by couldn’t help but raise their eyebrows.
Ahead was the auction hall.
Over there, security was brisk.
The area was filled with people dressed in robes of various styles and fashion.
Chu Yang and the rest marched along dramatically. Leading the way at the front, Chu Yang strode forward, his legs wide apart like a crab as he pushed his way through!
Everyone who saw was stunned. Who was this? So damned pompous!
Chu Yang stood right in the middle, as he should be. Zi Xieqing was on his left and Chu Le’er on his right, followed closely by the Dong Wushang trio and then the Wan Renjie trio.
Right after were Nangong Shifeng and his brothers, their unattractive faces full of pride as they strutted along. Wei Wuyan was at the end, fully clad in black, following them like a spirit with nary a hint of presence.
“Haha, Young Brother Chu.” Before they reached the front, a group of people emerged from the side. The leader was tall and his posture straight, expression hale and hearty; dressed in robes of navy blue, this person was from the Shi Clan.
It turned out to be the second grandmaster of the Shi Clan, Shi Jing.
The one that had called out to Chu Yang was also him. “Young Brother Chu is here so early today, hurhur…”
“Elder Shi isn’t late either.” Chu Yang held himself with poise, smiling and nodding politely.
This scene scared the wits out of everyone in the vicinity, including Wan Renjie and the rest at the back.
This was the ancestor of the Shi Clan of the Nine Super Clans! What did he address Chu Yang as? Young Brother?
For a moment there, the Wan Renjie trio felt a little faint, looking at each other dazedly.
What was going on?
Shi Jing leaned toward Chu Yang in a friendly manner as he chuckled. “Who may these be?”
Chu Yang gave a hearty laugh while making the introductions. “Elder Shi, let me introduce them to you. This is my brother, Dong, and the one next to him is his wife. That’s Rui, he’s my brother too. This is Big Brother Wan, Wan Renjie…”
He went through a flow of introductions, leaving out only Chu Le’er and Zi Xieqing.
Chu Le’er was a familiar face to Shi Jing but Zi Xieqing wasn’t.
A flicker crossed his eyes. He asked, “This is…?”
Chu Yang let out a laugh and said, “Come, let’s go in and see what kind of interesting things they have gotten from the Black Blood Forest, hahaha…”
Shi Jing got the hint and he said with a smile, “Yes, let us go in while it’s still early.”
Just that there was already a touch of difficulty and wariness within his smile.
So that big-shot… was also here…
Shi Jing’s legs felt a little weak at the thought.
Everyone went into the auction hall.
With an elevated stage in the wide and spacious area, the auction hall was huge indeed.
Surrounded by rows and rows of chambers, the main hall was 50 meters high, with one chamber every 3 meters or so, making a grand total of 15 levels. Each level housed 110 chambers.
At the top floor, however, there were only 20-odd extremely large chambers.
Chu Yang and Shi Jing headed upstairs together, so they could clearly see that the chamber assigned to Chu Yang was the third chamber in third-class, while the chamber Shi Jing was headed to was the first chamber in second-class.
Obviously, his chamber was of a higher class than Chu Yang’s.
Shi Jing broke out in cold sweat because of this ‘higher class’, however. He apologized profusely to Chu Yang, to which Chu Yang reassured him constantly that it wasn’t an issue. Only then did Shi Jing leave, wiping the cold sweat off his brow.
He mourned his misfortune endlessly.
All Nine Super Clans were here, how was it that he had to be so lucky to meet this soul reaper right at the start!
Of course, it wasn’t about Chu Yang. The one that he was having reservations about was Zi Xieqing! Even the Dharma Supreme couldn’t afford to mess with this woman, how would he be her match? If she was discomfited by the fact that her room was of a lower class than his… then his entire Shi Clan would probably become just as discomfited too…
After everyone had entered their rooms for a while, the rest of the notable clans here for the auction also slowly arrived one by one.
In the Shi Clan chamber.
“Grandmaster, should we inform the rest of the clans about this?” someone asked gingerly.
“The big-shot must be here to get medicine for her disciple. However, we do not need to make a big deal out of it.” Shi Jing’s eyes were half-closed as he continued, “It is none of our business even if the other clans compete against her and upset her.”
“Understood.” The Shi Clan disciple backed down.
Shi Jing’s eyelids twitched as he thought, “How can I let myself be the only one scared to death? The rest of you clans should also get a taste of it so that I can get a kick out of it… Otherwise, wouldn’t I have suffered all these for nothing?”
