Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 138 I Won't Be The Only One Scammed!
Gu Du Xing paused, “What?”
“Are all of your advancements a result of his teachings? Is he the reason for this vast improvement in your movements?” Ji Mo asked breathlessly.
“Of course!” Gu Du Xing said proudly.
“I have decided. I will join!” Ji Mo took a quick breath before he said, “Damn! In order to beat you, I will join! What do I have to do? Be his subordinate for a few years or what?”
A glimmer of satisfaction appeared in Gu Du Xing’s eyes.
“What is this organization called? It probably isn’t small right?” Ji Mo squatted on the ground as he panted, trying to catch his breath. His eyes flashed with excitement, “What is this leader’s name? Is he some sort of expert from the Upper Three Heavens?”
Now that Ji Mo had consciously made the decision to join the organization, his curiosity grew.
In Ji Mo’s mind, anyone who was capable of improving the Gu Du Xing’s cultivation speed and also his fighting techniques and style must be a renowned or outstanding figure. Perhaps even invincible!
An organization founded by such an individual would no doubt be the largest and the most powerful. If there had been someone like that in Middle Three Heavens, they would’ve probably had a clan or a sect and likely not have the time to create an organization. Hence, Ji Mo concluded that this individual had to be some sort of senior with a lot of free time from the Upper Three Heavens with the intention of just having some fun…
Ji Mo was very curious…
“This organization is known as the Heavenly Armament Pavilion. We also have many heavenly weapons there! Each one of them is capable of cutting even gold and jade. Those weapons are legendary! Even my Black Dragon cannot compare to the level of the weapons there!” Gu Du Xing said in a cool voice.
“Huh? Are you serious? Wait… Are you saying that I will have a chance to get my hands on one of those legendary weapons?” Ji Mo’s eyes widened with glee and were filled with expectations. He had often dreamt of traversing the world and through Jian Hu was an invincible weapon, becoming the source of everyone’s envy. He especially looked forward to the admiration of those people who were currently of the same level as him in the Middle Three Heavens…
Ji Mo was filled with joy as he imagined the expressions on their faces…
“Yes, you will definitely have a chance to!” Gu Du Xing thought and said, “However, given your lazy character and temper, I supposed the chances are a little slim.”
“How would you know if I am lazy?” Ji Mo protested in defense, “I am always dedicated and constantly training!”
Gu Du Xing rolled his eyes.
“Hey… Elder Martial Brother Gu! Seeing that we will be in the same organization, why are you still keeping secrets from me?” Ji Mo asked anxiously, “Tell me, which expert is your leader? Is he an Emperor level or perhaps Monarch level?”
As Ji Mo asked each question one after the other, Gu Du Xing shook his head in response each time.
“Oh god! Is he a Saint level Martial user?” Ji Mo’s voice trembled. His eyes shined with excitement like a ravenous wolf looking at its prey. The surprise and anticipation filled his entire body with glee as his hands shook with excitement.
He knew Gu Du Xing’s character very well. Other than the Gu clan, no one else stood a chance of winning his loyalty! Perhaps an Emperor level would have some hope. However, as long as they were under Emperor level, even Revered or King Level, it wouldn’t even be worth mentioning.
If the leader isn’t at the Emperor level, he must at least be Monarch level. Or Saint level? Oh mother, your son just got lucky! Even as a subordinate, being able to work for a Saint level master and being able to learn martial arts under him seems like a huge privilege…
Ji Mo was so happy, he almost fainted.
“He is also not a Saint level master!” Gu Du Xing said curtly.
“Great master Gu, Grandfather Gu… Please tell me!” Ji Mo stood up and quickly gave Gu Du Xing a shoulder massage. He smiled with flattery, “Elder Martial Brother Gu… Tell me…” His whiny voice made Gu Du Xing shiver in embarrassment for him.
“Punk! You’re toying with me!” Gu Du Xing said in an angry tone. He then shook his head with enjoyment as he said, “That side, press it a little harder… Put more strength into it… Go a little lower, harder… up a little more… on the left…”
After some time, Ji Mo asked breathlessly, “Master… will you tell me now?”
“Yes!” Gu Du Xing’s face suddenly became serious.
Ji Mo stared at Gu Du Xing’s mouth, in eager anticipation as he expected to hear something really shocking.
“He is not an Emperor level… Or a Monarch level and definitely not Saint level…” Gu Du Xing said slowly.
“Oh… Old master, stop being so mysterious…” Ji Mo became so anxious that his forehead was filled with perspiration as he frantically rubbed his hands together. “Please tell me… Even if he is a Supreme level martial user, I will be able to handle the shock!”
“Uh… he is currently a… seventh grade Martial Warrior.” His voice was uncertain, “Not too far from it though, he should have achieved that by now.” Gu Du Xing said seriously.
“Exactly as I expected! Hahaha… HUH?!” Ji Mo thought that he was mentally prepared but clearly he wasn’t. He almost chocked immediately after from the shock. “What did you say?”
“You heard right! The boss is a Martial Warrior!” Gu Du Xing said frankly.
Ji Mo’s ears had not deceived him. Upon confirmation that what he heard was accurate, his jaw dropped to the ground. He then laughed hysterically and said, “Elder Martial Brother Gu, Grandfather Gu! How are you able to joke about something like this…”
“It is the truth; I am not joking.” Gu Du Xing said seriously, “What I said is true!”
Ji Mo plopped to the ground and howled painfully, “Gu Du Xing! Just kill me!” Suddenly, he jumped up, and grounded his teeth, “Gu Du Xing, you can… You are really something! Not bad, not bad! I have finally discovered how talented you are!”
Ji Mo nodded forcefully, “Not bad! Really not bad! You ran all the way from the Middle Three Heavens and became a subordinate of a Martial Warrior from the Lower Three Heavens… You are truly unbelievable! If rumors about this were to spread, you will no doubt be the subject of worship of women of all ages in the Middle Three Heavens!”
“Less gibberish, and walk faster!” Gu Du Xing said coldly.
“I changed my mind!” Ji Mo squatted and shook his head like a rattle drum, “I am not going!”
“You aren’t going?” Gu Du Xing eyes narrowed, looking dangerously; clearly ready to take action.
“Even if you beat me to death; I am still not going!” Ji Mo said severely.
“Bam… bam… bam… bam…”
“Aaaahh… You can beat me to death; I won’t go…”
“Aa… a… a…”
“Bop… bop… bop…”
“Are you going?”
“Bop… pow… bam…”
“A… a… a… Stop hitting… Hoo hoo…”
“Are you going?!”
Gu Du Xing finally stopped and panted. He yelled, “Pathetic! You are really pathetic! If I didn’t beat you up you would still have that pathetic attitude!”
“Hoo hoo…” Ji Mo lay sadly on the grass, “Pathetic? Let me beat you up and see.”
“Didn’t you say you wouldn’t go even if I beat you to death? You’re still not dead yet…”
“You’re right. Beat me to death and I won’t go! However, if I’m still alive, I’ll go!” Ji Mo moaned, but he thought in anger to himself: If I didn’t get beaten like this, I would never go! A man should keep his word… But the truth is really too difficult to accept… However, I could say it and not keep my word!
“Stand up! Do you think you look very pretty lying on the ground like that? Let’s go quickly; I still have to find another person!” Gu Du Xing impatiently kicked him.
Ji Mo howled in pain and jumped to his feet, “You’re still looking for someone else?”
“Yes, I’ll recruit the Coyote as well!” Gu Du Xing slowly walked ahead.
“Coyote? Luo Ke Di?” Ji Mo could not help but be excited, “Right! That guy had driven his eldest brother crazy long enough. I support your decision, Gu Du!”
He thought to himself: If I am going to be taken, at least I won’t be the only one. I will take others to die along with me… I will definitely help Gu Du drag that guy in… At least, in the future, if I wanted to rebel, I will have an ally.
As Ji Mo thought about this, he became extremely happy, as he followed Gu Du Xing closely behind…
Two days had passed in a blink of an eye. Within these two days, Chu Yang constantly sent people to watch the movements of the visitors from the Hei Mo clan every day. What concerned him most was that these bastards were still not leaving!
Moreover, the whereabouts of some of them were unknown. Previously, there were fourteen people, but now there were only seven!
Not only did they not leave, but their actions in Iron Cloud Citadel became more intensive. They scurried about the busy streets from morning to night…
This made Chu Yang very annoyed!
As long as they did not leave, Mo Qing Wu could only hide in the secret chamber. How could hiding in such a place be comfortable?
Chu Yang thought for a very long time and decided to pay them a visit. People burn incense to lead ghosts; I will now burn incense to send them on their way. Letting them stay here is not a good idea…
Minister Chu sent people to prepare gifts and found some others to carry them. He then casually paid a visit to the largest inn in Iron Cloud Citadel, Cloud Gate Inn!
He went as if he was some young master on vacation. Even the people carrying the gifts from Iron Blood Hall of Bu Tian Pavilion did not know that this person was their leader, the fearsome King of Hell Chu!
Yin Wufa, a King level master of Golden Horse Riders Department, had never felt so alive in his entire life.
The three of them had finally arrived at Iron Cloud last night. Their people were exhausted and horses were out of breath. The first thing they did was find their way to this inn. They had purposely chosen it because of its strategic location which was close to Bu Tian Pavilion, which was just a little off on the other side of the street.
Before they had time to prepare anything, Yin Wufa gave orders to gather all of Golden Horse Riders Department’s people. Unfortunately, they were unable to gather any of them. All of the secret contacts’ houses were empty and not a single person was found.
Yin Wufa was filled with rage and sent the two people to look for hidden signals. The result was eight out of ten hidden signals were changed, or nonexistent…
It was not until midnight that they managed to contact one person, but this person was extremely frightened. When he came face to face with the King level master in person, Sun Zhang Fa, a Martial Master’s face was covered with tears and snot all over his face…
“Sir, we were not shirking in our duties, but this King of Hell Chu is really too vicious!”
“I had a total of six underlings. All of them were separated into three different teams and each team was unaware of the other teams. I had been more than careful… A day ago, when Liu Xiao San and Deng Xiao Wu disappeared together, we did not find out until that afternoon. They had the task of contacting Official Wu. However, somehow, he is sent to jail for robbing and killing. Every stop they made was investigated, and all the false business fronts were closed…”
“Late that afternoon, Li Shun and Zhang Nang were able to go out to gather information and watch the shop. The result was that they were captured the moment they opened the shop. It turned out that Official Wang whom they were bribing had his home searched and revealed everything about them…”
