Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 160 Diwu Qing Rou's Miscalculation!
What Kong Shang Xin feared and disliked the most in his life was feeling sadness and grief. However, today he had the taste of his own medicine. When he was left without anywhere to go and everyone in the Middle Three Heavens were searching for him, Yin Wu Fa and Yin Wu Tian came to his aid. They eventually became his martial brothers but in addition to that, he also considered them his benefactors. Thus he had a very strong bond and connection to the both of them.
At that very moment, as he looked at Yin Wu Fa’s situation as his life hung by a thread, Kong Shang Xin’s heart quivered in pain.
His personality had changed since the time when he had been hunted. He used to be extremely reckless but had become more cautious and matured. Before deciding on any action he would always formulate a plan and assess the situation. If he found something to be uncertain or undetermined, he would never willingly choose to take the risk. In all things, he took safety as his top priority. It was because of this cautious nature which allowed him to advance to the position of Golden Horse Riders Department’s King level leader.
However, the moment he saw the state of Yin Wu Fa, his blood began to boil violently. The hatred in his heart grew exponentially and filled with rage, he was determined to seek redress for his martial brother!
“Uh… uh…” Yin Wu Fa’s eyes opened widely and looked at his second martial brother. He seemed to want to say something but was unable to speak.
Do not overexert yourself! The prime minister has sent some Jade Spirit Ginseng for you to use. Let me feed it to you!” as Kong Shang Xin said this, he ran out hastily. He felt fortunate that he managed to arrive in time. If he had chosen to travel with Cheng Yun He, perhaps the outcome would have been different.
Upon hearing the words “Jade Spirit Ginseng,” Yin Wu Fa’s lifeless eyes suddenly brightened with renewed hope and his body trembled despite his critical state.
After a long period of time, Yin Wu Fa’s pale face began to regain its colour. The horrifyingly deep wounds began to close slowly. Soon after, he gradually recovered to a normal state and his breathing regain its strength and fell into a gentle slumber.
From the time his body was in a critical condition to the moment that he slept, he was unable to utter a single word. He had been completely drained of strength.
“I have finally managed to save you from the hands of the King of Hell!” Kong Shang Xin said sadly as he took his hand and placed it on Yin Wu Fa’s forehead. He then removed his cloak and laughed to himself as he muttered. “I really did save you from the King of Hell, King of Hell Chu…”
He let out a sigh and closed his eyes to meditate.
When he came to, everyone had gathered around him and appeared with worried looks on their faces. There were a total of three Command Horse Riders and fifteen Black Horse Riders.
Command Horse Riders had cultivation levels of sixth grade Revered Martial Artist and higher. Within this group, two of them were eighth grade and one was ninth grade.
This particular group was fairly powerful. There were fifteen Black Horse Riders which were of ninth grade Martial Great Masters and above. Amongst them, fourteen of which had achieved Revered Martial Artist.
Moreover, this was only the first wave which had been sent here by the Golden Horse Riders Department. Cheng Yun He was on their way with another group. The Golden Horse Riders Department’s plan was to crush their enemies with their sheer numbers. The mission of these groups was to rescue Tang Xin Sheng and solve the problems in Iron Cloud all at once!
Bullying others? Yeah, we’re bullying you! You people don’t have as many martial masters as we do; I am going to bring a ton of martial masters just to deal with you; do you have a problem with that?
It was like killing a little ant with an elephant! Shouldn’t you feel honored?
As Kong Shang Xin thought about this, he felt very cool.
“Sir, what should we do next?” One of the Command Horse Riders asked cautiously, “Should we wait for Official Cheng to come or…”
“Have you people found out where they are keeping Number One?” Kong Shang Xin snorted as his eyes were still on Yin Wu Fa. Although he had calmed down, hatred began to overwhelm him again as he asked in a loud voice, “Where is King of Hell Chu keeping Number One?”
“Sir, we have not found any information regarding that yet!” The Command Horse Rider replied promptly, “Although, we have news that King of Hell Chu has been very concerned with the jail of the justice department. In addition, he has mobilized many martial masters to be on guard at that location. From the time of Number One’s disappearance until now, justice department’s jail has become more and more heavily guarded. It seems that the number of martial masters keeping has increased day by day.”
“According to our speculations, it is likely that Number one is currently being held there!” The Command Horse Rider’s eyes shone with certainty as he replied Kong Shang Xin. His voice seemed to carry a fierce thirst for blood.
“Regardless of whether he is indeed there or not, I shall go over and have a look!” Kong Shang Xin said arrogantly. “I want to see if King of Hell heavenly dragnet is able to trap my Water Dragon!”
“Hahaha…!!!” The Dark Horse Riders and the Command Horse Riders laughed loudly.
“Can you guys guess the cultivation level of the martial masters that King of Hell Chu put on guard?” Kong Shang Xin asked pensively.
More than a dozen of his subordinates along with the two subordinates of Yin Wu Fa looked at each other and shook their heads. One of them who looked like he had been in deep thought answered anxiously, “I think it is likely that they would at least be Martial Warriors!”
Another person immediately snapped, “You are underestimating the King of Hell Chu! The prime minister had said never to underestimate your enemies! I believe that they should at least be Martial Artists!”
Someone else said with concern, “I feel that there is the possibility that the enemies we will be dealing with will at least be Martial Masters or higher. After all, Martial Masters are difficult to deal with!”
“That’s right! That’s right! I think that there might be even Martial Great Masters!” Another person quickly added his thoughts.
“You have a point! But I feel as if… does this King of Hell Chu know what a Martial Great Master even looks like?” Kong Shang Xin raised his question with sympathy.
“Perhaps this King of Hell Chu has never even met one!” One of the Command Horse Riders shook his head and sighed, “In any case, Martial Great Masters are as rare to them as dragons are!”
“Hahaha!!!” Everyone laughed out loud as they mocked the King of Hell Chu. The two Revered Martial Artists with Yin Wu Fa laughed loudest. Since coming here with Yin Wu Fa, the two of them have lived in comfort. However, after they went into hiding they had not dared to make any movements until this now.
“We should fulfill this little wish for King of Hell Chu!” Kong Shang Xin kindly said, “It would be pitiful for a person to die without having met a Martial Great Master!!!”
“Ahhh…” The Command Horse Riders pretended to be sympathetic before one of them sighed, “You guys are doing a good deed!” He then looked at the Martial Great Masters and said sadly, “This is a great deed!”
They broke out in laughter!
“We should not delay! We will scout out the place at midnight and see what kind of traps King of Hell Chu has set up!” Kong Shang Xin laughed, “If we wait until Official Cheng arrives, we might not be able to do our good deed! We should not let the opportunity pass us by! We might not get another chance!”
“You are truly wise!” Everyone said with admiration.
Once they had a plan, Kong Shang Xin started questioning the two Revered Martial Artists, “How did Third King level leader get so severely injured? He said that King of Hell Chu caused these injuries; is this true?”
“Yes!” The two Revered Martial Artists hastily replied.
“Haha, absolutely not!” Jing Meng Hun had already talked to Kong Shang Xin about Diwu Qing Rou’s deductions. Therefore, Kong Shang Xin was feeling especially confident, “Your leader was fooled by King of Hell Chu!!!”
“Huh?!?” The two Revered Martial Artists were shocked.
“But don’t tell him about this just yet!” Kong Shang Xin sighed, “We want to avoid shocking him while he is still in recovery!” Looking at the wounds on Yin Wu Fa’s body, Kong Shang Xin cursed silently, “These moves are too cruel; each stab pierced right through the body, clearly without any intention of letting him live. This was done by a Sword King!”
He thought about Diwu Qing Rou’s words: “eliminate this misunderstanding at all costs.” These words made Kong Shang Xin feel as though he was trapped.
He only had one intention when he arrived and that was revenge. However, ever since Jing Meng Hun passed down the order from Diwu Qing Rou, Kong Shang Xin was left without any choice but to carry it out.
During this mission, saving his third brother and bringing him home safely was sufficient for Kong Shang Xin. That Number One was of no consequence to him. But after seeing Yin Wu Fa and his pitiful appearance, Kong Shang Xin became furious!
The moment he saw Yin Wu Fa’s wretched state, his objectives changed! He had originally thought that Yin Wu Fa was the top King level master. Moreover, he had been injured in Lower Three Heavens and as such he expected those injuries to be somewhat of minor yet they were extremely severe!
Hence, he now believed that even a King level master could be killed in Lower Three Heavens!
Another important piece of information was that while he understood Diwu Qing Rou’s judgement, his order did not seem to make sense to him. It had mentioned that he wasn’t to do anything until the arrival of Cheng Yun He. Moreover, whatever happens during the mission, he had to discuss it with Cheng Yun He before taking action.
He was clearly establishing Cheng Yun He as the leader of this mission! Motherf*… Who is Cheng Yun He? Does he even dare to boss around a King level master like me?
It was especially bothersome that Diwu Qing Rou had repeated this over and over again. However, Kong Shang Xin could no longer sit still and wait. As the vanguard, he had arrived first. He was going to do something significant before Cheng Yun He arrives in two days!
If he could kill King of Hell Chu before Cheng Yun He arrives then…
I will show the prime minister that even without the help of Cheng Yun He, I, Kong Shang Xin is capable of accomplishing great feats!
Kong Shang Xin was filled with fighting spirit. He wanted to create and follow his own plans to deal with this blood debt once and for all.
While Diwu Qing Rou’s plan was flawless, he had miscalculated one thing. He might have taken into consideration the affection Yin Wu Tian had for his brother Yin Wu Fa; however, he had not crossed his mind to consider the friendship between Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa.
Perhaps this was because Diwu Qing Rou, himself, was not one to care about friendship. He probably understood affection between biological brothers, but he probably never had any sort of friendship and hence was never able to understand it…
He only knew that Kong Shang Xin was a seasoned veteran who acted calmly and, therefore was the best candidate for this job. However, what he lacked to take into consideration was that Kong Shang Xin, who was experienced and composed, would be so affected by Yin Wu Fa’s injuries that the fury in his heart would awaken.
This was Diwu Qing Rou’s mistake. The kind of mistake that was not related to intelligence, but human nature!
Chu Yang was currently returning to Heavenly Armament Pavilion.
When he got there, he was frightened. In the frontcourt, he saw five figures fighting each other violently.
Gu Du Xing and Rui Bu Tong were fighting with the other three. After a short while, Gu Du Xing and Ji Mo fought with the other three. Then the fight soon changed to Luo Ke Di and Ji Mo against the others, Gu Du Xing fought with three people, a second later, Gu Du Xing fought against four people!
The fight was taking place all over the area, the terrain constantly shifting, from the front court to the island, from the island to the water, then to land, they continued to fight with each other.
Each of them was panting, and their eyes were red, but none of them showed any intention to retreat.
Chu Yang could feel that the situation was not good and quickly went over to stop them. In the worst case scenario, he would be washing their underwear!
