Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 114 Chu Yang's Impulsiveness!
“Hahaha…” Mo Cheng Yu laughed, “This little girl knows that men and women should not be together… Alright, Uncle Chu Yang and I will give you some privacy by going outside to talk. If you feel any sort of discomfort, do not hesitate to call me right away.”
He turned toward Chu Yang, “Brother Chu, let’s go outside and talk.”
After he said that, he was shocked. It was as though he saw something that he clearly did not expect to see. After a moment, he asked, “Brother Chu, what’s wrong with your face?”
Chu Yang weakly rolled his eyes and thought: What’s wrong with my face? My wife just called me uncle and treated me like one! The fact that I am not killing myself right here is already something…
“Was little miss’s wound treated by Du Shi Qing? What did he say?” Mo Cheng Yu’s brows twisted as he sat with Chu Yang on the steps; his heart was heavily burdened.
Since he discovered that Mo Qing Wu’s Three Yin Meridian had been damaged, Mo Cheng Yu felt extremely burdened and was desperately attempting to find a solution to the problem. He was incredibly quiet and stared into blank space not knowing what to do.
“Senior Du mentioned that her condition is untreatable! Even with all the nine great legendary herbs under the heavens, he wouldn’t be able to do anything!” Chu Yang chose not to hide anything from this King level master because he had a good impression of him. He looked at Mo Cheng Yu and said, “Senior Mo, there is currently no way to cure Qing Wu’s injury. I am afraid that she wouldn’t be able to handle it if you brought her back to her family. Just leave her with me. What do you think?”
Mo Cheng Yu’s dark brows pinched together. He sighed and said, “No!”
Chu Yang’s eyes twitched angrily as he asked, “Why do you choose to bring her home so she can endure an endless cycle of suffering? Remember that her Three Yin Meridian is damaged! It is a fact that the family’s attitude towards her will change! Both you and I are aware of the way children with no useful values are being treated!”
“Although it might be painful, she is still a person of the Mo family!” Mo Cheng Yu sighed, “In the family, the benefit of the whole clan has to always come first; it’s not something you don’t already know. While you have saved her life, to the Mo family, you are still a stranger.”
Mo Cheng Yu snorted, “Even if she were to be treated worse than before when she returns, it is still better than her staying with a complete stranger. Although you might have saved her, the fact that we do not know much about you remains!”
“Not to mention, with your current strength, do you think you can keep her safe? If Hei Mo finds their way here, it is likely that you wouldn’t even be able to protect her!” Mo Cheng Yu coldly said.
His last sentence made Chu Yang feel completely powerless.
This was the truth!
No matter what, the harsh reality was that he was extremely weak. If he was at least a Martial Great Master and had the Nine Tribulations Sword, he believed that he might be able to deal with Hei Mo.
However, he was but a ninth grade Martial Warrior and had not even reached the level of a Martial Master yet.
If Hei Mo arrived, Mo Qing Wu would surely die! Keeping her here with me would not be protecting her but rather harming her instead.
However, despite this, Chu Yang was still unwilling to let Mo Qing Wu face the heartlessness of her family.
“In any case, little miss is still the clan master’s own daughter.” Mo Cheng Yu said sincerely, “Even without Three Yin Meridian, her life in the family would still be considered pretty good.”
“Do you really believe in the things you just said?” Chu Yang looked at him coldly, “You are a King level master; if your cultivation is gone and you become an ordinary person, even if no one looks down on you, how will you be able to deal with it?”
“Everyone has no choice but to face reality!” Mo Cheng Yu growled in a low voice. “Don’t you think that I feel bad as well? The moment that little miss was born, she had the Three Yin Meridian. I had been assigned as her mentor and guardian. I watched her grow up and I see her as my own daughter! I am mad that she was the one injured and not me! How could you understand how much I love her?”
“I am aware that once little miss returns home, she will be pulled into the power struggle and her life would be far from peaceful. However, only the family will be able to protect her and keep her from harm! I most definitely cannot entrust you to do such a thing!” Mo Cheng Yu’s eyes were red with fire. He glared intensely at Chu Yang as all his emotions which were suppressed suddenly burst forth.
“But I will not allow her to go home and be treated unfairly!” Chu Yang did not give in.
“You won’t allow it? What can you do?” Mo Cheng Yu looked at him dismissively. His voice was full of pain and helplessness. Those were hurtful words but were nonetheless the truth. “Chu Yang, the only reason why I am still talking to you is that I am grateful to you for saving us. However, you should be aware of your current strength. The Mo family will not be changed by you, and certainly not by me!”
“What if I use force?” Chu Yang’s eyes narrowed as he said in a low voice.
“If you force me to stay, I have no choice but to do so because of my injuries. However, you have to bear in mind the consequences of your actions. Even though you might not have any ill intentions, if the Hei Mo family finds out about this, they will retaliate. Similarly, if the people of the Yan family clan are made aware of this, they would completely destroy this place!” Mo Cheng Yu grunted as he continued, “You are a wise person, and certainly would not try anything as foolish as that!”
Chu Yang had impulsively used the word force despite knowing it was something that he would not be able to carry through. Moreover, he was finally able to meet Mo Qing Wu, and her being under such unfavorable circumstances made it harder for him to let her return home and suffer the same miserable past.
However, if he did not let her go back, everything Mo Cheng Yu said would come to pass. Chu Yang might not have admitted it but he did not have the power required to protect Mo Qing Wu. At this point in time, keeping Mo Qing Wu here would be harming her as well as himself.
The fact that Mo Cheng Yu came into Iron Cloud Citadel to find Du Shi Qing could not be hidden any longer. At this very moment, people in pursuit of Mo Qing Wu could be on their way or even here at any moment.
“We need to discuss this carefully.” Chu Yang thought about it for a while before he conceded. “Senior Mo regardless of whether both of you will stay, your injury has to be treated as soon as possible. On the off chance that enemies arrive or pursue you, at very least you will be able to retaliate. As for everything else, we should wait until Mo Tian Ji gets here before discussing it any further.”
This was the best delay tactic Chu Yang was able to think of.
The mere mention of the words “Mo Tian Ji” filled Chu Yang’s heart with bitterness. He could not voice out how he felt, and could only sigh.
“That will have to do. I am afraid my injuries will take about half a month to recover.” Mo Cheng Yu’s voice displayed a hint of regret and annoyance. However, at the same time, he also felt guilty and remorseful. Although it was his duty was to protect the little miss, but now she had sustained an injury which she could never recover from!
A mixture of emotions caused him to be distraught and depressed.
He knew Chu Yang’s solution was the most appropriate course of action. Moreover, he also needed some time to heal as well. If his injury was not completely healed and he pushed himself to leave with little miss, it would be likely that they would be killed by enemies.
“I have rare elixirs for injuries from Senior Du Shi Qing. You are a King level master, you should know what you need for your injury. If we don’t have it here, just let me know!” Chu Yang said slowly.
Chu Yang leisurely took two steps before he said, “The only thing is if you are to stay here and enemies arrive, it would be troublesome. It would be better if you moved to the secret underground chamber and waited for your injuries to heal before leaving.”
He smiled and continued, “Like you said, if the Hei Mo people come right now, I would have no means of stopping them. Please do not hold it against me for being overly cautious!”
The secret underground chamber was specially designed by Chu Yang. It was especially deep. He did this in preparation to obtain the second fragment of Nine Tribulations Sword. The secret chamber was specifically located right above the second Nine Tribulations Sword fragment. According to Chu Yang’s estimate, he only needed to dig at most twenty feet in order to reach it.
However, now this secret chamber had been turned into a safe haven.
“This is for the best. Even I am not that careful!” Mo Cheng Yu sighed. If it was not for Mo Qing Wu by his side, he would have rather died honorably in battle than hide in a hole. However, he was now left without a choice
“Let me make the necessary arrangements.”
There were no servants at Heavenly Armament Pavilion, thus Chu Yang had to do everything by himself.
At the shops, basic amenities like, beds, lamps, blankets and other necessities were quickly bought up by a hasty shopper who did not seem to care about prices. In about an hour, two rooms were prepared.
Chu Yang carefully arranged everything, ensuring that it would be comfortable for Mo Qing Wu. In addition to that, he covered all four walls with white silk. The bed was also dabbed lightly with oil to fill the entire room with a gentle fragrance.
Mo Cheng Yu’s room was considerably less well set up. Chu Yang had just tossed the items into the room and told Mo Cheng Yu, “You can set it up yourself. Good night…”
Mo Cheng Yu was so mad that his hair stood on its ends.
While Chu Yang was busy preparing, Mo Cheng Yu was observing him carefully. The more he looked, the more he couldn’t wrap his mind around Chu Yang’s intentions.
Who is he? How does he know little miss? In addition to that, he took care and protected little miss despite his seemingly low cultivation.
He had already met most of the talents from the Middle Three Heavens’ families. Moreover, if he had not met them, he had heard others described them. There was absolutely no person like Chu Yang.
This really was strange!
Moreover, naturally, he would not ask what Chu yang did not want to talk about. At the very least, he did not seem to harbour have any ill intentions!
Once everything was properly prepared, Chu Yang gently carried a sleeping Mo Qing Wu and set her down. The moment Chu Yang put his arm out to hold Mo Qing Wu, Mo Cheng Yu put out his hand in protest. But Chu Yang shot him a stare as sharp as a saber.
Although Mo Cheng Yu was a King level master, the stare unexpectedly sent a chill down his spine. After that Chu Yang said, “You are injured; what would happen if you accidentally tripped?”
Mo Cheng Yu had no choice but to let Chu Yang do as he wished and awkwardly followed him down to the secret chamber.
Looking at Mo Qing Wu sleeping soundly in the secret chamber, Chu Yang rubbed his hands and said, “Senior Mo, I want to discuss something with you.”
“What?” Mo Cheng Yu was extremely annoyed. This kid had just stared at him in a very hostile manner and what was worse was that he was actually fearful of it! I am a King level master! What level is this kid? Why was I fearful of him? Did I accidentally run into a demon…
