Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 121 Reminder
Chu Yang was furious. He grounded his teeth and pointed at Cheng Zi Ang’s face. He shouted, “You… You… I told you to spy on them. But you were spied on instead. You even caused me to walk right into their trap! Yet, you dare to stand here all smug?!”
“You… you… you…” Chu Yang’s finger trembled in anger and disbelief. “Do you know how the pig’s grandmother died?”
Cheng Zi Ang was scolded to the point he was feeling dizzy. When he suddenly heard a question, he unconsciously responded without thinking, “How did it die?”
“From stupidity!!!” Unable to contain his anger, Chu Yang screamed, “You barely even contributed and you have the guts to come here and take credit? Along with that smug look of yours. Do you feel intelligent? It seemed as though your arrogance knows no bounds! You were arrogant enough to laugh at others? You are really thick skinned!”
“Hahahaha…” Chen Yu Tong was no longer able to contain himself. He held his stomach and fell to the floor, laughing. Tears and snot were everywhere. He smacked the floor, barely able to breathe; his whole body was convulsing.
I can’t control myself anymore… Even if I were to lose my head, I must laugh.
After his burst of rage after venting, Chu Yang said coldly, “Do you people have anything more to say?”
Chen Yu Tong and Cheng Zi Ang answered dejectedly, “No!”
Cheng Zi Ang felt extremely dejected almost like he had just lost his family. Chen Yu Tong was a little better off. However, both of them were so ashamed of themselves that they wanted to hide their faces.
“If there is nothing else, why are you people still loitering around? Don’t you feel useless enough already?” Chu Yang slammed the table which rattled everyone. Then he roared, “Hurry and invite the prince here! Do I need to teach you this as well? Have I not scolded you enough yet? Huh?!!”
The moment he said this, they hurriedly got up and vanished from the main hall without a trace, moving as fast as they could.
In the small room, Wu Qian Qian had a brush in one hand, and the other held onto her stomach as she laughed uncontrollably. Straining to keep quiet, she placed a hand over her mouth so tightly that she was barely able to breathe, and her shoulders shook uncontrollably.
It was the first time she witnessed Chu Yang so angry. If nothing else, Chu Yang’s anger could cause people to laugh to death.
Of course, the victim of said anger could not laugh.
A little later, Chu Yang came in with a cup of tea. Wu Qian Qian was still dying from laughter. Chu Yang asked in surprise, “Is it that funny?”
Wu Qian Qian let out the word, “Mother!” Her stomach almost burst from laughter upon hearing this question. A long while after, she finally managed to control her laughter but she was still trembling slightly from all the laughing.
“Chu Yang… Phew…” Wu Qian Qian tried hard to hold down her laughter, “Wouldn’t the way you scolded them create hostility?”
“Absolutely not!” Chu Yang said confidently, “Scolding has to be artfully balanced. Both of them were scolded therefore are in the same boat, neither would feel too bad. Moreover, the mistakes that they made were unforgivable. If I don’t reprimand them now, they will cause bigger problems in the future.”
Then Chu Yang sighed, somewhat discouraged.
Wu Qian Qian laughed, and said, “Still, you were a little hot-tempered.”
“I had to let it out!” Chu Yang sighed, “Bu Tian Pavilion is currently in no shape to fight. Our strength is still inadequate to fight against Diwu Qing Rou. Every little mistake must be immediately corrected. Over time, they will gradually become stronger and better!”
“If I am always gentle with them, I am afraid they will have the same irresponsible attitude when Diwu Qing Rou attacks…” Chu Yang took a deep breath and said, “If I reprimand them now, we will suffer fewer losses in the future…”
“You should bear in mind that strong minds and the fortified morale of soldiers are a result of fighting and scolding!” Chu Yang said slowly.
With an ‘uh’, Wu Qian Qian became pensive about what Chu Yang had said.
Soon after, the sound of horses stamping on the ground grew louder and louder as it approached Bu Tian Pavilion. Tie Bu Tian strode in wearing a white cloak and his white royal attire. He appeared radiant but his gaze was cold and electrifying.
He was followed by two men.
Chu Yang smiled and walked out to greet him. Suddenly, his eyes perked up. He felt that those two people were by no means ordinary…
They were walking behind Tie Bu Tian in broad daylight but Chu Yang still got a hazy feeling. It was as though they were two shadows rather than two living beings.
When the two men walked, one would step forward with his left leg and the other one with his right; it was chaotic at first glance, but it was done in perfect harmony. One would complement the other. Moreover, when the two stood in place, it felt as though those two people were one!
Their walking seemed extremely slow. But upon careful observation, each step was a few yards, equivalent to seven or eight steps of an ordinary person.
They were not walking, but drifting?
The two stayed close to Tie Bu Tian. Chu Yang suddenly felt as if there was a fortified metal wall around Tie Bu Tian, it was so strong that it seemed that even a needle would not be able to penetrate this area around him!
While Chu Yang was observing them, they were quietly judging him. At this moment, Chu Yang felt a chill over his entire body; he suddenly became anxious and the hair on his back stood on end. This kind of feeling… was like being haunted by demons, countless of them!
Chu Yang finally had to move his gaze, but he continued to think to himself. Those two people are by no means ordinary or simple!
Could it be that these two people were the Tie Bu Tian’s hidden aces? Perhaps they were the reason why Diwu Qing Rou’s plan to assassinate Tie Bu Tian had not succeeded even up till now?
He was still deep in thought when Tie Bu Tian came up to him and asked hastily, “Minister Chu, you captured that guy?”
In excitement, Tie Bu Tian had come up right next to him, almost leaning on him. Chu Yang instinctively sensed a sweet fragrance, and could not help but frown as his face showed a strange expression.
Tie Bu Tian upon realizing this and quietly took half a step back.
“Got him!” Chu Yang rolled his eyes, “I almost lost my life today! This guy did not reveal his true self. He was actually a ninth grade Revered Martial Artist… Truly powerful!”
Tie Bu Tian composed himself for a moment as though bracing himself for some terrible news before he asked, “What is the death count for Bu Tian Pavilion?”
When he heard that the enemy was so powerful, he immediately assumed that Bu Tian Pavilion suffered serious damage.
“No casualties… I used poison!” Chu Yang coughed dryly twice and added in a low voice.
The moment these words left Chu Yang’s mouth, those two abnormal shadows watching Chu Yang suddenly viewed him with contempt. Such disdainful looks could have been easily perceived by anyone.
Chu Yang felt extremely bothered; he looked up at those two people and said, “Do you two seniors think that using poison to secure victory is desecrating the way of martial arts?”
The two did not answer; there were only four eyes icily glaring at Chu Yang.
“Amongst us, no one was his opponent. And yet, we carried on our shoulders six hundred million people of Iron Cloud. To fight fairly would have been foolish. We were definitely not his opponent! If I did not use poison then there would be total unrest in Iron Cloud Citadel! I do not have the luxury of not using everything at my disposal!” Chu Yang spoke slowly.
Their eyes showed a look of pensiveness, and their contempt gradually reduced compared to what it was before.
“I speak these words not to explain myself to the both of you. But I want you to understand…” Chu Yang’s gaze was extremely serious as he continued slowly, “both of you are guarding the prince. These enemies have many different strategies and tactics up their sleeves. If you continue to hold on to the lofty ideals of martial arts, the enemies will no doubt succeed using their unscrupulous methods. You will be branded as the sinners who caused the prince’s death!”
“You two will have to take responsibility! Complete responsibility!”
Chu Yang’s words carried clear implications. His cultivation was not high, but his mind was extremely sharp. He carried with him experience from his past life and in addition to that, there was Nine Tribulations Transcending the Nine Heavens Technique. His mind was at the level of a fourth or fifth grade Revered Martial Artist, but in front of these two, he was completely suppressed!
Mind and aura were suppressed in all aspects!
These two must be at least be high-grade King level masters!
With these two next to him along with other martial masters to assist, Tie Bu Tian was in safe hands! In all of Lower Three Heavens, anyone who attempted to assassinate Tie Bu Tian would not even have the power to cause him any injuries!
Perhaps even Diwu Qing Rou’s underlings, the four King level masters of Golden Horse Riders Department, were to try to kill Tie Bu Tian all at once, he could still remain unharmed! These two might not be able to fight, but they could easily take Tie Bu Tian and run!
However, Tie Bu Tian had been assassinated in the previous life! Therefore the most likely explanation was that the enemies managed to trick these two people. From the contemptuous look they gave him, Chu Yang knew that they were very traditional martial artists! This was their greatest weakness, and also the greatest weakness in Tie Bu Tian’s circle of protection!
These kinds of people will, of course, never be able to deal with the enemies’ complex schemes! If I can see this, then how could Diwu Qing Rou not be able to see this? Moreover, he is famous for using any means necessary to achieve his goals!
Chu Yang felt that he needed to remind them of this. Now that the events from the past have changed, it could be possible that Diwu Qing Rou would act even earlier than before?
“You did not do too badly!” The master on the left suddenly said. The voice was dry, almost as though he did not talk throughout his entire life, “But we will never do that!”
After he finished, he closed his mouth; he closed his mouth really tightly!
Tie Bu Tian was really surprised and turned around to look. Ever since he could remember, he never saw these two shadow people say so many words to other people. They did not even bother with Second Uncle Tie Long Cheng. He certainly did not expect them to talk to Chu Yang today, much less praise him.
What was even stranger was that they showed a hint of apologizing and admitting their mistake.
This was really strange!
Chu Yang nodded but thought to himself. With the mentality of you two, inverting fate will not be easy. It seems that I will have to do a little more myself…
“Where is that person? Bring me to him! I want to talk to him myself!” Tie Bu Tian’s expression was one of anger yet his gaze remained cold and emotionless. Iron Cloud Citadel had been deceived by this fraud for a decade! And Tie Bu Tian was one of them whom he had managed to deceive!
For Tie Bu Tian, this was one of the greatest insults.
