Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 154 Gu Du Xing Returns
All of a sudden, a dry voice came out of nowhere and roared, “Minister Chu does not need someone who can’t take orders; His Majesty does not need such a person as well!” Before these words were completed, a shadowy figure flew down from the air. There was a glowing crown on his head!
This crown looked almost as if it was solid.
Suddenly, a cloud of mist appeared. It shape-shifted into a large hand in an instant, covering Qu Shao Bo’s head.
“Shadow Lord…” Qu Shao Bo did not even have a chance to beg for mercy and he had already been turned into a pile of minced meat by that large hand. Everything was happening so quickly that the others were still rushing in upon Chu Yang’s order. When everything was done, their bodies were still in the air.
The large hand slowly pulled back and dissolved into a mist again. The shadowy figure that was floating in the mist said sternly, “Minister Chu, His Majesty wishes to let you know that you can kill anyone that displays insubordination or incompetence!”
Chu Yang smiled gleefully and replied, “Please let His Majesty know that I already knew of this!”
From within the mist, the shadow gave a slight nod. Sounds of fluttering wind could be heard, and the figure disappeared without a trace.
The action taken by the shadow had incited great terror amongst the guards! Everyone was now looking at Chu Yang with great anxiety and fear!
Chu Yang smiled bitterly as he thought begrudgingly to himself. It seems that Tie Bu Tian’s good intentions this time around has ruined my plans. I am perfectly capable of taking care of this situation by myself, yet he had to get involved like this. His well-intentioned intervention has just weakened my authority.
If everything acted according to my plan, everyone in this place would have killed Qu Shao Bo. This would have been much better.
As he stepped into one of the cells, he looked at the person who was lying in the cell and was all curled up. Chu Yang did not utter a word. The prisoner inside this cell was on death row; he had been interrogated and tortured to the point where he no longer looked like a human. Furthermore, he had lost his ability to speak. In accordance with Tie Bu Tian’s idea, this man was used as a double for Tang Xin Sheng.
However, Chu Yang was a little hesitant with this idea…
“This is the best opportunity!” Chu Yang looked around the gloomy cell and planned quietly, “But… setting up a fake scene here is extremely dangerous. I have to figure out a way to ensure that it is beneficial for us in every aspect.”
Chu Yang frowned and pondered for a long period of time. The others stood behind him in silence. No one dared to breathe too loudly, in fear of disturbing his train of thoughts.
“Touch up and perfect all the traps around here. If I notice that any trap does not fit in the next time I come here, the ones who set it up may leave.” Chu Yang left behind these words just as he prepared to take his leave.
Needless to say, these words were sufficient to make all the masters tremble in fear.
Over the next few days, Chu Yang was rushing around, trying his utmost best to go about his daily life. In the mornings, he would manage the assignment of capturing Yin Wu Fa. In the afternoons, he would continue to challenge other people. Eventually, all his efforts had paid off really well. Chu Yang was finally able to integrate the Gentle Force of Water into his moves.
While it was going to take a while before he could fully incorporate this force into all his techniques, this was still a tremendous progress.
Furthermore, his martial power had increased continually. After just a short period of five to six days, he had already become a third grade Martial Artist. Such a high rate of advancement made a King level master like Mo Cheng Yu absolutely baffled!
I have never seen such quick advancements like this! This guy is totally a monster!
In the early evenings, Chu Yang would always train Mo Qing Wu on her saber techniques, pointing out any flaws of hers. Next, he would read her some stories. One big and one little person; initially, there were strong words and stern faces. After a short period of time, they were sitting together peacefully.
During this time, Chu Yang’s ‘studious’ efforts had proven to be extremely effective. In the eyes of Mo Qing Wu, Brother Chu Yang was indeed becoming more scholarly with each passing day!
Whether it was a story in heaven or on earth, an old or new story, a fantasy or a love story… Brother Chu Yang knew them all at the back of his mind!
Xiao Wu was starting to admire Brother Chu Yang more as the days went by.
While Brother Chu Yang had strict requirements of her when it came to her training, Mo Qing Wu had come from a great clan and understood clearly that strength was the key to gaining the respect of others! Beauty, on the other hand, was nothing more than a flower vase.
Hence, she never felt any disdain.
Besides, after each training session with her saber, she actually got the chance to hear stories and play with toys…
Mo Cheng Yu watched the two people of different sizes from a distance. One was telling the stories as the other one listened to these children stories in great excitement; it was really giving him the shivers. Deep down inside, he was more worried and deep in thought.
Prior to this, he did not suspect that anything was off. However, he could not avoid thinking about it now. Chu Yang’s speed of advancement was simply not possible by any human. Mo Cheng Yu imagined that if he maintained his current speed of advancement, he would become a King level master within a year without a doubt!
If that speed was maintained… actually… even if he had a slightly slower speed, he would achieve that level of cultivation just as quickly. Mo Cheng Yu was certain that in just twenty years, Chu Yang could potentially become the greatest master in the world!
This world included the Lower Three Heavens, Middle Three Heavens, and even Upper Three Heavens!
Anyone could tell how much Chu Yang adored Mo Qing Wu.
When they return to the clan this time, would the clan listen to him and allow Mo Qing Wu to continue receiving the privileges of a person with a Three Yin Meridian?
Mo Cheng Yu was not sure of this at all!
Nonetheless, there was one thing that he was absolutely certain of.
All the clan needed to do was to simply mistreat little miss by just a little bit to cause Chu Yang’s anger to reach the heavens! There was not one clan in the world that would want to go head-on with a young master who had such limitless potential!
If Mo Qing Wu was poorly treated by the clan, Chu Yang’s current strength would be too weak to be of any threat. But… once he had the strength, he would definitely be a misfortune for the entire Mo clan.
During the time that he had interacted with Chu Yang, how could Mo Cheng Yu not know about his character? He was an absolutely lawless person. Worse still, he was definitely one who would go all out to seek revenge!
Furthermore, he was about to become an extremely powerful person in Lower Three Heavens, despite being so young and without any family background! Who would know how he would turn out to be when he reached Middle Three Heavens?
Nonetheless, there was one thing that he was sure of: If the entire world knew of Chu Yang’s cultivation speed, all the clans in Middle Three Heavens would try their best to invite him to join their clans, at all cost!
Given Chu Yang’s personality, he would never join any clan. Instead, he would rather build upon his own strength. Mo Cheng Yu was absolutely sure of this trait of Chu Yang.
If the Mo clan… were to exert too much pressure, Chu Yang would be cornered and would fight without a care for anything else.
I still have no idea why Chu Yang cares so much for little miss! He seems to care for her so much that he has stopped caring about anything else, let alone himself.
Such great attention to another person was truly terrifying to a bystander. Mo Cheng Yu felt that if something were to happen to Mo Qing Wu when she returned to the clan, Chu Yang would definitely seek revenge and there would be countless deaths!
In fact, if Chu Yang had to delve deeper into his personality, he would say this: “I will serve anyone who can destroy the Mo clan!”
Mo Cheng Yu shivered at this thought and immediately got out of his thinking space. He was certain of the fact that if Chu Yang were to realize that he could not deal with the Mo clan himself, he was definitely capable of doing such a thing.
If nothing happens to little miss, the Mo clan will then have a big supporter. On the other hand, if something was to happen to little miss, the clan will have to face the most terrifying enemy in the world!
Mo Cheng Yu laughed in bitterness. The problem is, will the clan even believe my words?
They will probably just call me a lunatic!
As the days passed, Mo Cheng Yu’s injuries steadily improved. However, he started to go deeper in thought as well. When he discovered that Chu Yang had suddenly broken through fourth grade Martial Artist, he got even more worried. His worries started to become more serious and had essentially caused him to have a mental condition.
Besides having to worry about this, he was concerned about the fact that he still had not received any news on the two young masters, Mo Tian Yun and Mo Tian Ji. What could have possibly happened to them?
Time passed quickly and three days had gone by in a flash.
Chu Yang ceased his adventure of going out to challenge people. This was because it would take nine days for the fastest horses to arrive at Iron Cloud from Great Zhao. In fact, if Diwu Qing Rou had worked quickly, the martial experts from Golden Horse Riders Department would be in Iron Cloud early that night!
A great battle was about to happen.
After this great battle, Iron Cloud would be totally cleansed; all of Chu Yang’s targets would be eliminated!
In the early morning of the eighth day, before Chu Yang even had to chance to get out of bed, there was already a loud commotion outside Heavenly Armament Pavilion. It seemed that some people had arrived.
Hastily, Chu Yang got dressed and went out. Instantly, he ran into Gu Du Xing, along with a few people. Gu Du Xing’s facial expression was just as cold as before, and he walked as stiff as a corpse.
After seeing Chu Yang, his eyes suddenly lit up with great emotion!
“Big Brother, I have not failed you!” Gu Du Xing advanced towards him and bowed respectfully.
Of course, Gu Du Xing knew very well that there was no need for such a formality between them.
However, these newly arrived punks had to see Chu Yang as a person of absolute power! This was especially since Chu Yang’s current martial power was nowhere near theirs. This action of his was thus absolutely necessary!
As expected, that bow left the five people behind him absolutely taken aback.
Who was Gu Du Xing? He was the strongest and fastest amongst them. Additionally, he was the loneliest man and was terribly disobedient and unruly.
Despite all that, Gu Du Xing was actually showing respect to this youth! All of a sudden, everyone was in great awe.
“These guys are the subordinates that I’ve found!” Gu Du Xing introduced the five guys without much emotion.
“Hey, Gu Du! I’ve already told you before: I am only here to help!” Ji Mo called out in protest.
“Shut up!” Gu Du Xing turned around and flashed him a fierce look in his eyes, “If you keep talking, I will give you a good beating!”
Ji Mo shrunk as he took a step back. He muttered, “You’re constantly threatening me like this. Do you know of anything else in life?”
“What did you say?” Gu Du Xing bellowed. Immediately, Ji Mo closed his mouth and did not dare to say another word.
“This guy is Ji Mo, a good-for-nothing. He is the second young master of the Ji clan, as well as a punching bag for the eldest young master, Ji Wu Tian. He’s a lazy guy that would not go anywhere unless you drag him around, for he is as stubborn as a mule. Nonetheless, he is extremely afraid of being beaten up!” Gu Du Xing introduced him scornfully, “He also uses a sword, but he’s not that good. He is much worse than me!”
With these words, the people behind him burst into a mad laughter.
“What nonsense are you talking about?” Ji Mo’s face turned red as he looked at Gu Du Xing, “You didn’t even leave me with a little bit of face!”
“Ji Mo?” Chu Yang looked at Ji Mo. Immediately, his eyes lit up.
This man was very interesting! He wore a blue ribbon on his head, a blue robe, a blue outfit, and also blue shoes.
He was blue from his head to his toe!
