Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 159 Grieving Saber King Arrives!
He had finally succeeded. Chu Yang discreetly wiped the perspiration which had gathered on his forehead and thought: This wasn’t easy at all! I’m exhausted!
However, in the eyes of the Saber King, this action of his was interpreted as fear and he started to comfort Chu Yang. “Don’t worry kid, I won’t just sit here and let them do whatever they want!”
“Ah, what will you do, senior?” Chu Yang rolled his eyes and asked.
“Well, do you have to ask? Of course, we will annihilate them!” The Saber King said in a murderous tone.
“That is such a pity!” Chu Yang replied hastily and said, “If they did indeed have such intentions, then they would naturally bring good quality medication with them. Moreover, the Sword King is so severely injured…” The tone in which he said this was extremely emotional.
This caused the Saber King to be touched by what he had said and praised him in a kind voice, “This kid is really kind and conscientious!”
“It would be best to meet them under a false pretense and pretend to reconcile with them before taking the medicine that they would have brought along. This will guarantee that the Sword King would be able to avoid death. After which, we can work together to capture them. This way, Diwu Qing Rou would not only lose good quality medicine but also manpower! Teach that bastard a lesson and let him know that there are people who are more talented and better than him in this world. He might think of himself as an intelligent individual who is resourceful but when fighting against the Hei Mo clan, that is inconsequential!” Chu Yang said viciously.
“That’s right!” The Saber King stood up and replied smugly with a proud voice. “Diwu Qing Rou would definitely lose to my strategy! If Diwu Qing Rou knew that I had discovered his schemes, I wonder he would feel. Hahaha…”
After he was done, he looked up and laughed, feeling extremely happy.
Lose to your strategy? Underneath his mask, Chu Yang’s mouth twitched as he cursed: I have not met someone with skin as thick as yours until today!
If Diwu Qing Rou knew about this, would he spit up blood a hundred times, then cut his own throat and castrate himself? Perhaps after he had done that, he would dig his own hole and jump into it.
This was too unjust for him…
“Minister Chu, I will have to return and quickly set this up. The other people from the clan who have just arrived would also want to participate as well.” The Saber King’s eyes were filled will killing intent, “Diwu Qing Rou played with our Hei Mo Clan as though we were fools. Who does he think he is? What a fool! If I do not obliterate them this time, I would lose all my pride as a warrior!”
“Senior, I completely empathize with you!” Chu Yang’s voice was filled with anguish. “I feel so ashamed! The fight between Iron Cloud and Great Zhao is a Lower Three Heavens matter. Why would Diwu Qing Rou want to get other innocent people involved? This lowly official finds such actions completely dishonorable. How could he be called the world’s greatest mind if he caused harm to innocent people in this conflict!
“Greatest mind?” Hahaha…” The Saber King was proud that he had managed to uncover the scheme of ‘the greatest mind’ and became extremely arrogant. He was so proud of this achievement that he started to think that perhaps he should be called ‘the greatest mind’ instead!
“Excellent! I will go back and prepare. You should prepare here as well. However, it seems that you don’t have anything of importance to do here!” The Saber King said and smiled.
“Yes, of course! With your powerful skill, all this lowly official needs to do is to follow and cheer in support. Getting a small bit of your glory being rubbed off onto me is already such a great honor!” Chu Yang laughed cheerfully and replied.
“Senior, I need a little help from you…” Minister Chu took advantage of the Saber King’s good mood to put out a request, “This time, Diwu Qing Rou might send people here with the intention of rescuing someone who is important to him. However, this person is already dead! If… haha!”
“You want me to find someone to pretend to be that person and attack those who might come and rescue him?” It seemed that the interaction with Minister Chu had gradually opened his mind and made him wiser! He was different from before. When talking to King of Hell Chu, he had learned to answer.
“Yes! You are truly wise!” Chu Yang was filled with admiration for him, “I had such thoughts but I am not nearly as thorough as you are!”
“This is nothing! Hahaha…” The Saber King laughed and comforted Chu Yang. “Everything in life needs to be learnt and human life can be seen in books. You are still young and it is natural that there would be things that you would not have considered!”
“Yes, yes! You are too wise. I am completely in awe of you! Hahaha…” Chu Yang quickly answered. “If that is the case, I will depend on you solely for this matter!”
“I give you mind word!” The Saber King answered immediately and solved the problem which had been bothering Minister Chu. “Just wait for a while, I will send someone here to assist you. Would a seventh grade Revered Martial Artist be adequate?”
“Adequate? It is more than adequate!” Chu Yang laughed, “To use a seventh grade Revered Martial Artist for a trap seems to be like killing a chicken with a knife used for killing cattle! It is more than enough!”
“Hahaha… If that is the case, I am assured!” The Saber King stood up immediately as though there was a slight reluctance in his actions and he added, “I will have to leave now!”
He could not bear to leave this place! He seemed to be much more talented than everyone else here and it was here that his thinking became so quick that he even surprised himself…
“Please take your time!” Chu Yang did not waste the opportunity to curry more favor with him, “Your wisdom is unrivaled and your planning is simply flawless. It is regrettable that such talent is hidden in Jiang Hu. You should see our Iron Cloud Nation’s prime minister…”
“Haha, stop dreaming!” The Saber King shook his head in modesty but was actually feeling extremely pleased with all the flattery. The poet within him was suddenly inspired and he began to speak a few verses:
“A person in Jiang Hu
After death is a ghost of Jiang Hu
Killing without blinking
That is who I am!”
After that, he immediately shook his thighs with satisfaction.
“Excellent poetry!” Chu Yang called out in praise, “While this poem has only four short lines, it carries the mentality of one who is free and cannot be tied down. It also perfectly sums up the Jiang Hu’s fierce and mighty blood. It is more majestic than any single individual’s accomplishment and it perfectly encapsulates the mentality of generations of youths. Anyone who hears this would unconsciously bow down in reverence.”
“Hahaha…, you are not bad either. You are flattering me again!” Hearty laughter rang out in an extremely harmonious atmosphere. Both the old and young were looking at one another with an unspoken understanding. The Saber King was exceedingly elated as he walked out laughing.
As for King of Hell Chu, he was felt extremely accomplished and happy with what he had done. As he walked into the room, he laughed loudly.
The moment Wu Qian Qian entered the room, she immediately witnessed King of Hell Chu holding a children’s book to cover his mouth and conceal his laughter. Tears ran down his face as his entire body was trembling from trying to keep in his laughter.
“Are you alright?” Wu Qian Qian was startled; she asked with a trembling voice. What could make King of Hell Chu this happy? This is truly unheard of!
Earlier, I heard him crying as though someone in his family had passed on. Moreover, he was cursing Diwu Qing Rou vehemently! Was I mistaken?
His discussion with the Hei Mo Saber King was top secret and as such Chu Yang and the Saber King were the only ones present. If not for that, Wu Qian Qian who was young and inexperienced could have easily ruined the King of Hell Chu’s plans with a single laughter!
“Hahaha” Chu Yang used his “quiet laugher” to show he was extremely happy. His shoulders were moving uncontrollably as he laughed.
After a long while and getting all the laughter out of his system, he gradually regained his normal composure.
“What really happened?” Wu Qian Qian was scared by his laughter!
“Hahaha” Her question made King of Hell Chu start to laugh again at a deafening volume. Wu Qian Qian covered her ears in annoyance. Her face appeared confused as she didn’t understand what was happening.
The more the King of Hell Chu laughed, the more he lost control. One of his hands slapped his thigh while the other banged hard on the table top. His entire body shook and tears ran down his face, “Hahaha… This fellow is just so stupid…”
Wu Qian Qian was so angry that blood began to drain from her face. She stomped out of the room and cursed in her mind: This guy is a lost cause.
I was being nice and he cursed me. And with that kind of language as well.
Meanwhile, the people from the Hei Mo clan and Minister Chu were hoping that Diwu Qing Rou would send a group of his men into Iron Cloud Citadel sometime near the early evening…
Using the darkness of the night, a group of people snuck into Iron Cloud Citadel stealthily. They immediately headed towards Yin Wu Fa’s hiding place.
Diwu Qing Rou’s spy network was deeply rooted within the entire Iron Cloud Citadel system. This network had been established through many years of hard work and the location of this hiding place was extremely secretive.
Inside, the Third King, Yin Wu Fa was on his final breath. The people who were watching over him were the two Revered Martial Artists and they were too struggling! How could such a secretive hiding location not have any special medicine?
Moreover, in addition to this, they couldn’t get a physician. The only thing they were able to do to cope with the situation was to discreetly purchase some medication and quickly head back. They were constantly at risk of being exposed and danger surrounded them constantly.
Unable to do anything else, the two Revered Martial Artists took turns using their own energy to prolong Yin Wu Fa’s life. The both of them were as exhausted as Yin Wu Fa because of this.
In fact, being able to help Yin Wu Fa hang on until this point was already a great miracle. If support were to be delayed even further, it is likely that Yin Wu Fa would perish from his injuries and those two would die from exhaustion!
The moment Kong Shang Xin saw Yin Wu Fa, his heart was stirred. He was so hurt that tears began to well up in his eyes. Yin Wu Fa was no different from a skeleton and was unable to even move. The wounds which he had sustained were still raw and bleeding. However, the edges of each one of them were already dark purple.
His breathing was shallow and almost without any strength. He was clearly in an extremely critical state!
Kong Shang Xin appeared to be a little over forty years of age but his body was small and nimble. He had been a thief from Middle Three Heavens who had offended some powerful individuals and had no choice but to flee. As a result, Yin Wu Fa, Yin Wu Tian and himself had to escape into the Lower Three Heavens. It was soon after that the three of them joined Golden Horse Riders Department as King level leaders.
The affection these three had for one another was deeper than the ocean. After he had seen Yin Wu Fa in such a pitiful state, how could he not feel sad and angry?
I will never cry, but my whole life will be in grief.
This spoke to the feelings between the two. Kong Shang Xin now began to cry because of his martial brother.
Without seeing tears fall, I will not cry. However, the moment I feel sad, I am already grieving!
Shang Xin Saber King, the name made it sound as if he was a compassionate person. But those who understood its true meaning knew how cruel Kong Shang Xin was.
He did not cry, but he made others cry. In his lifetime, he was so afraid of grieving that he made a resolution to make his enemies grieve instead. Kong Shang Xin was a very vengeful person.
“Third brother!” Kong Shang Xin quickly ran over; his two eyes red.
