Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 126 Debt!
Mo Cheng Yu just gave Chu Yang a helpless expression and shrugged his shoulders before adding fuel to the fire, “Ahhh… little miss, Uncle Chu Yang has been very nice to you already… How but letting him continue telling his story for you…”
“It’s Brother Chu Yang!” The little girl shook her head in frustration and began to bare her fangs as she said, “Brother Chu Yang is a liar; his fairy tales are boring me to death…”
Mo Cheng Yu started to sweat and said, “Okay, okay… Brother Chu Yang is Brother Chu Yang. He has many other stories; he’ll tell them now…”
“Really Brother Chu Yang?” The little girl looked at Chu Yang with great expectation.
“Koff koff…” Chu Yang looked at Mo Cheng Yu with indignation; I was depending on you to help me… How could you be so shameless…
Mo Cheng Yu pretended not to notice Chu Yang’s indignation and his cold gaze. He simply smiled and said, “I have some internal injuries. Please let me sit and meditate for a while. Little miss, please go ahead and listen to Brother Chu Yang’s stories.” After saying that, he immediately slipped away…
Chu Yang waved his arm, powerless and unable to speak…
“Brother Chu Yang, tell your stories!” Mo Qing Wu yanked on Chu Yang’s sleeve and blinked her lovable eyes, “Tell me a really good story!”
Chu Yang, “…”
After a long, long time, Chu Yang staggered out of the secret chamber; his countenance was pale, his eyes exhausted and his lips dry. He plopped down on the floor and moaned, “Pleasing girls is really exhausting…”
The thought that his flirting plan had to be carried on for another eight to ten years made Chu Yang pale and distraught.
After she matured, Mo Qing Wu would not be like this! She would usually smile calmly and did her own work quietly and gracefully…
How could this girl be so demanding and boisterous?
Chu Yang sighed in exhaustion and dipped his head into a vat of water to drink. He was dying of thirst! As if anyone could tell stories nonstop for hours on end…
Oh god! People could die from it…
At very least, Chu Yang was still very pleased… Mo Qing Wu had enjoyed herself and he was willing to put in the time and effort to see her happy… even if he would have to do it for a few more years…
Youth could go away, but he would never allow this joyfulness to disappear!
Starting tomorrow, I will have to read more books; specifically to learn more fairy tales… Chu Yang fiercely vowed to himself! For the sake of ‘flirting’, he was willing to pay any price!
Late that afternoon, Chu Yang began to make dinner for three of people. After they finished their food, he hid part of the mess in the kitchen and left a third of it uncleaned while he also put away the remaining two-thirds of the bowls… The entire kitchen looked as though only one person had made food, ate and left the mess in the kitchen…
After saying a few words to Mo Cheng Yu, Chu Yang left.
Mo Cheng Yu was a King level master and as such was experienced. Therefore, he would realise the severity of the situation that they were in and not act rashly… Chu Yang was not worried about this. Furthermore, the secret chamber related to the Nine Tribulations Sword was incredibly well hidden and anyone who wasn’t a top-grade master wouldn’t be able to discover it.
Chu Yang went out to look for Tie Bu Tian… Tie Bu Tian had made a bet with him and he was absolutely not going to be shy about collecting his reward.
While the bet was made for fun, it was serious to Chu Yang. It was related to Mo Qing Wu’s lifetime of happiness. How could he not take it seriously?
About two hours after Chu Yang left, a few black shadows quietly snuck into Heavenly Armament Pavilion. They looked at almost every inch of the place without making a single sound. After which they gathered around the main rooms which were in the center of the other rooms…
One of the intruders went in like a ghost and disappeared. He did a round of inspection and quietly came back out after discovering nothing.
“Well?” The other veiled people in black stood outside, eyes glowing with ill intention.
“No one, very clean.” The person said, “According to our investigation, there are only two people currently living here. One of them left more than twenty days ago and has not returned. There is only one person here now. The evidence here has also verified that there is only one person here.”
“Go check the pots and pans in the kitchen; see if medicine was cooked.”
Three or four people went in.
The leader stood outside for a while, then he walked into Chu Yang’s room.
“We discovered nothing extraordinary in the kitchen except for the fact that this guy is really messy. The ground was covered with vegetable soup, and he did not bother to wash anything. Judging from the smell, the food must have been from yesterday night. There is definitely just one person here.”
“Huh?” That leader suspiciously walked into the kitchen. The moment he entered, he almost gagged from the heavy stench of spoiled food. He struggled to look around and searched carefully before nodding and said, “It seems that there is only one person cooking here.”
“Sir, we found the medicine storeroom.”
“Let’s take a look.”
The so-called medicine storeroom was a tiny sealed room stacked with medical supplies that Chu Yang did not use. In that mess, Chu Yang purposely kept some rare items as well.
“Although this guy is really lazy, he does have some valuable things…” That leader stood at the door and slightly frowned as he looked at the mess inside.
“There are two medicine pots here.” One black outfitted man yelled out.
That leader took one sniff, and said, “This one is clearly brand new and has never been used… but this one… oh my… it must have been from over a month ago. The herbal dregs in it are completely covered in white mould!”
Chu Yang had wasted a lot of effort to obtain this stinky old medicine pot and now it had proven itself useful…
One person pushed out the moldy pieces. He held his breath and looked inside, “This is medicine for a cold…”
“Get lost! Who even asked you? Are you highly educated or even talented? You even have the balls to say it’s for treating a cold…!” The leader grimaced and slapped the man’s face hard.
“It’s herbal dregs from more than a month ago. Moreover, even if it was for treating injuries, it’s still unrelated to the Mo clan. A month ago, Mo Cheng Yu was still around the Mo Clan!”
Because that guy had picked at the herbal dregs, the stinky smell exploded in the entire room. Suddenly, the entire storeroom was much smellier than a public toilet…
“Yes, yes… I deserve to die.” That guy continually apologised for his mistake and tossed the medicine pot outside. With a bam, the medicine pot fell on the ground and broke into five or six pieces.
The stench became even worse.
That leader became even more livid; his face turned purple as successively slapped the idiot… Then, unable to hold on any longer, he held his nose and ran out of there as if his life depended on it. His speed was definitely impressive!
The moment he had moved quite a distance from that area, he began gasping for air. With fierce and cruel eyes, coupled with rage, he looked at that underlying and scolded nonstop, “You fool! You might be stupid but at least save some of your stupidity for the rest of the world… I have met many idiots but none of them were half as dumb as you!
The rest of the group also ran out chaotically while holding their breaths as they covered their noses.
“Damn! What is that horrible smell?”
“This stench is going to kill me!”
The leader still covered his nose as he asked in a serious tone, “Did you discover anything? Were there any secret passages?” His tone was filled with anger.
“We did not find anything.”
“Nothing and you are still here? Let’s leave quickly! Are you enjoying this smell?” The leader roared in anger and disappeared into the night.
It seemed he suffered a great wrong.
An important and powerful leader of the Hei Mo clan, he was a King level master… He only needed to stomp his foot and all four directions would tremble. He had never been in any place that was so stinky!
This was humiliating…!
Everyone looked at one another and quickly scrambled to escape. Finally, the highly educated and talented guy could no longer control himself and threw up his dinner before dragging his useless body out of there.
The leader’s slaps were not for soft or light… he had lost two teeth as well as a few mouthfuls of blood.
Of course, Official Chu Yang knew nothing of this. At this point, he was walking into the palace’s vault.
Prince Bu Tian was extremely puzzled and annoyed with Chu Yang as he came to his door to claim his reward from the earlier bet they made.
It has only been a few hours, and he is already asking for payment? Does he even trust me? Why do you have so little faith in me?
While gambling was a normal, everyday thing in Iron Cloud Citadel… every hour, there would be some sort confrontation that broke out because of it, but… collecting debt from a prince, the ruling prince of a country…
This was by far, too unusual.
Therefore, Tie Bu Tian was greatly troubled when he saw a red-faced King of Hell Chu standing in front of him… His body language seemed to indicate that payment must be made immediately…
“Your Majesty, koff koff… hack hack… You lost earlier but have not fulfilled your promise yet!”
Hearing Chu Yang’s words, Tie Bu Tian almost choked on his own blood. He grounded his teeth and said, “Minister Chu, you’re really something! Would I skip out on a debt to you?”
“Haha, koff koff… I was just worried that Your Majesty would become so busy with thousands of things that you have to do that you would forget…” Chu Yang knew that he was being impolite but still continued. Thick skinned? Despicable? No problem! Pay your debt and you can despise me as much as you want.
There is a saying that goes, the thick skinned eats everything, and the thin skinned gnaw on dirt… Such wisdom… Haha…
Now, the prince was annoyed at being ‘escorted’ by King of Hell Chu to the palace’s vault.
