Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 113 Uncle Chu Yang?
The man clothed in dark clothes said with a sorrowful expression on his face, “Little miss is really close to second young master and doesn’t get along very well with the eldest young master. The rivalry between second young master and eldest young master is extremely intense. It seems as though eldest young master is currently favoured over second young master. This is simply because he has managed to garner the support of the majority of the clan’s elders. It is actually quite likely if eldest young master becomes the next master of the clan. The consequences of such a result for little miss would be disastrous!
Chu Yang could only nod and sneered. This was the reason why Mo Qing Wu did not return home in the previous life. Surely there were also other hidden circumstances as well!
In these family clans, there was no such thing as love. Mo Qing Wu would always hang around her second brother as such the Three Yin Meridian skill that she had indirectly levelled the playing field between her second brother and eldest brother. It was no wonder that the eldest young master held a grudge against her!
The events as they turned out today was everything that the eldest young master could have hoped for. Why would he want to help his little sister? If he attains the power of clan head, Mo Qing Wu would definitely no longer be able to live a peaceful life as she did before.
“The name of the Mo family clan’s third young master is Mo Tian Xing?” Chu Yang raised his eyebrows as he was deep in thought. This name felt familiar and he could not help but ask, “could you tell me what is the name of the eldest young master?”
Chu Yang’s heart began to beat violently as he asked those two questions.
“Mo Tian Yun.” The man in black sighed, “He was originally the second son but is now the eldest son, also the one most likely to succeed as the master of the family clan.”
“And the second young master?” Chu Yang asked hastily.
“The second young master is Mo Tian Ji. In the family, eldest young master is the bravest and fiercest, and second young master is very resourceful. This is acknowledged by everyone; how could you not know?” The man in black gave Chu Yang a strange look. It seemed that he was a little surprised by Chu Yang’s questions. You knew about Mo Qing Wu, so why don’t you know about Mo Tian Yun and Mo Tian Ji?
“Mo Tian Ji? Mo Tian Ji!” Chu Yang shuddered and muttered again, “Mo… Tian… Ji…”
A good friend in the previous life, the young master of the Mo family clan, and also the person who planned the ambush that sent me to my death in Upper Three Heavens… This person that caused my violent death is Qing Wu’s brother!
Chu Yang couldn’t help but sneer condescendingly, “Someone who easily fell into the traps of others is considered to be resourceful?”
“Ahem… The temptation of the remains of a Monarch level master was…”
“Little brother, what is your name?” The man in black suddenly smacked his forehead and asked, “I am sorry I took so long to introduce myself. I am Mo Cheng Yu.”
“I am Chu Yang.” Chu Yang’s state of mind had yet to recover from the shock; it still remained immobilised from the shock as he heard those three words – Mo Tian Ji.
Why did Mo Tian Ji betray me and ended up scheming against me? Chu Yang couldn’t understand what happened. In the previous life, both of them drank together all the time and shared many deep and heartfelt conversations which they had late into the night.
Although Mo Tian Ji had many opportunities to kill me, he never revealed the slightest intention to. Chu Yang had always felt that Mo Tian Ji enjoyed his company and genuinely wanted to be his friend.
Moreover, in Middle Three Heavens, Mo Tian Ji has helped me in countless dangerous situations.
Therefore, Chu Yang never understood why Mo Tian Ji plotted to kill him. Today, he finally knew the answer; this was his sister Mo Qing Wu.
He remembered the last time they both had drinks together; they were both dead drunk and were talking about things in heaven and on earth… somehow, they ended up talking about the sad things in their lives and the regrets they each held in their hearts.
Memories of the past suddenly began to come rushing back to Chu Yang…
“My greatest regret is my little sister. She was my favourite sister!” Mo Tian Ji reeked of alcohol as he began to talk about this and tears ran down his cheeks. “My sister met a heartless man and even though she gave away everything for him, he just tossed her aside. In the end, she had died because of him. When she was alive, I asked her countless of times who he was but to no avail…”
Mo Tian Ji’s tearful eyes were full of hate and anger. He ground his teeth in anger, “If I knew who he was, I would erase his existence from the face of this world. Even if he is the son of the Lord of the Upper Three Heavens, I will make sure he dies! Even if it will lead to the fall the entire Mo family, I would do it!”
“My greatest regret is not knowing who that man is…” Mo Tian Ji’s head dropped as he cried louder.
Chu Yang was also drunk and he could not help but ask, “What is your little sister’s name?”
“My little sister’s name… I dare not speak it. Just thinking about it is already painful…” Mo Tian Ji smiled bitterly. He lay on the table and muttered, “Little sister… little sister… Why didn’t you wait for the day your big brother become the master of the family clan…”
Mo Tian Ji caused Chu Yang’s memory of Mo Qing Wu to surface; this caused his heart to become stricken with grief as well… Thus he told him everything about him and Mo Qing Wu that very night…
At that time, Mo Tian Ji stared at him strangely after hearing everything. However, he was too immersed in his own memory to notice…
The next day, Mo Tian Ji quietly left without a trace. All he found was the precious sword that Mo Tian Ji valued as much as his life at the doorway, broken in half…
Ever since that day, he did not see Mo Tian Ji again. He was always worried that something unfortunate had happened to Mo Tian Ji and he searched for him everywhere…
However, after he had retrieved the fifth fragment of Nine Tribulations Sword, he ran into the fatal ambush orchestrated by Mo Tian Ji.
This explains everything!
The reason why he left without saying goodbye. The very reason why the sword which he valued so much being broken into half signified the severing of their friendship.
Subsequently, he ambushed Chu Yang in order to avenge his little sister. Even though Chu Yang never mentioned the name Mo Qing Wu, but, with his intelligence, Mo Tian Ji was able to guess that he was the one responsible for his little sister’s death.
Chu Yang sighed. He did not know whether to laugh or cry.
At this moment, Mo Qing Wu’s body began to move slightly. She let out a painful moan and slowly opened her eyes. With sluggish movements, she tilted her head and looked around, then she focused on the two people.
Her eyes were as clear as the sky accompanied with black glistening pupils. Chu Yang was mesmerised by her eyes…
Mo Qing Wu frowned as if she was in great pain. Seeing Mo Cheng Yu by her side, her lips started to quiver as her eyes suddenly filled with tears. She appeared as though she was a little girl who had been bullied and just saw her family.
“Little miss, you are awake. How is your wound? Does it still hurt?” Mo Cheng Yu asked nonstop as his body slowly moved forward blocking Chu Yang’s view.
“Uncle Cheng Yu…” With eyes full of tears, Mo Qing Wu said pitifully, “It’s really painful …”
“Good girl, don’t cry, don’t cry. Uncle Chu is here, too. Don’t make Uncle Chu laugh at you.” Mo Cheng Yu held back his sadness and began to attempt at consoling her, “Little miss, it was all thanks to Uncle Chu Yang…”
Chu Yang stood on the side with his mouth gaping. His whole body trembled, and his face lost its color.
Uncle… Chu Yang?
That’s my wife!
Chu Yang was so furious, he almost began to foam at the mouth…
Mo Qing Wu nodded slightly before she raised her hand to wipe away her tears. She looked at Chu Yang… her little tiny face began to flush a bit. She greeted him and said, “Thank you, Uncle Chu Yang. I will never forget that you saved my life…”
Chu Yang hurried waved his hand and laughed, “It’s nothing. It’s nothing. *Cough*… *cough*… I am not that much older than you, please just call me Brother Chu… Uncle is too old…”
Mo Qing Wu was confused. She turned her little face and looked up at Mo Cheng Yu.
Mo Cheng Yu’s eyes widened, “No certainly not. Seniority has to be taken seriously. You must be called uncle. Why brother? Absolutely not!”
Chu Yang felt conflicted deeply within as he started at Mo Cheng Yu with anguish. He was so furious that he was on the verge of dragging the man out to beat him up. Even though, a moment ago, he had thought this man was someone of great character. Yet, the sight of him now made Chu Yang filled with anger and anguish.
“Uncle Chu Yang…” The little miss licked her lips and said, “I want to drink water.”
“Uh… oh…” With a discolored face, Chu Yang slowly carried the water over. Aaaahhhh… it seems I will have to be called uncle for the next few days.
“Let me.” Mo Cheng Yu said protectively. He grabbed the water from Chu Yang’s hand and carefully held it up for Mo Qing Wu to drink.
“Uncle Cheng Yu, when is my second brother coming?” Mo Qing Wu blink a few times, her face was filled with sadness, “I want to tell second brother to give those bad people a beating…”
“Ah, second young master… is on his way.” Mo Cheng Yu was somewhat flustered. At this point, he really did not know whether Mo Tian Ji was still below cliff’s face or if he had been ambushed? He had no way of knowing when Mo Tian Ji would come.
He gently helped Mo Qing Wu lie back down. It seemed her wound was disturbed because Mo Qing Wu cringed. This caused both Chu Yang and Mo Cheng Yu to be distressed.
Mo Cheng Yu held Mo Qing Wu’s little hand tightly. A flow of energy slowly moved through her body as he carefully checked her injury… His facial expression immediately changed. His whole body began to tremble before it became stiff. After that, he spat out a mouthful of blood, and said in anguish, “How… how… could this be?”
He discovered trouble within Mo Qing Wu’s Three Yin Meridian…
When Chu Yang was asking, he had his suspicions, but had still held a tiny ray of hope… Now that the bad news was definitive, the whole world was spinning.
“Uncle Cheng Yu… Uncle Cheng Yu… what’s wrong?,” Mo Qing Wu asked in a panic.
“I’m fine. That was just a blood clot; I feel much better after spitting it out.” Mo Cheng Yu forced a smile and pretended to be relaxed, “You should get a good sleep; when you wake up, everything will be much better.”
Qing Wu obediently closed her eyes. However, she immediately opened them and said shyly, “Uncle Cheng Yu… with you and Uncle Chu Yang here, I… I can’t sleep…”
Uncle Chu Yang again. Chu Yang looked up towards the heavens and sighed. He felt so depressed every time Mo Qing Wu called him ‘Uncle Chu Yang’.
“Why can’t you sleep?” Mo Cheng Yu asked in surprise, “You should feel reassured with your uncle here.”
“It’s because both of you are… men…” Mo Qing Wu’s innocent eyes opened wide, “Mother said, when a young lady goes to sleep, there must not be a man next to her. They must be sent away…”
