Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 162 First Persuasion!
Using the momentum of the punch, Chu Yang shot forward. He jumped up into the air before suddenly kicking back down.
Compared to Ji Mo’s group, Chu Yang’s martial power was much weaker. Because of the difference in their cultivation levels, they were able to see Chu Yang’s attack clearly.
However, what astonished them was that Chu Yang drained almost all of his energy with just three moves and went into a state of exhaustion.
Nevertheless, he showed no signs of stopping and each punch that he produced was perfectly combined with all of his forces together.
The wind from his punches pushed through the atmosphere. In an instant, without any sound, he had punched thirty to forty times! His posture was firm and the only worrying thing was his heavy breathing. It seemed that if he continued, his lungs would give up on him, unable to keep up with the continuous strain he was placing on them.
After thirty to forty punches, one of the punches carried with it a slight ‘pop’ sound.
“Extreme breakthrough!” The four people exclaimed in unison. No one understood this feeling more than them. Break first, then build up. Failure before success. The feeling was like a phoenix which turned into ashes before it could be reborn!
The sound of the wind whistling grew louder by the minute. After a while, the strength of the sounds had passed its peak and the sounds gradually stopped. However, his punching stance still remained as firm as before although the punches seemed to be without any force.
“Extreme limit again!” Ji Mo and Dong Wu Shang looked at each other in terror.
Chu Yang continued to quietly punch without rest. His breathing grew more and more labored and the veins on his temple were throbbing intensely. His entire body began to glow with redness from the exhaustion.
Time continued to pass and another pop was heard. Ji Mo and company once again exclaimed, “Another extreme breakthrough!”
All in all, Chu Yang had three consecutive extreme breakthroughs. After the last time, his body slowed down, and his breathing stabilized as he remained standing in a firm posture.
All five of them witnessed everything from start to end. Swear began to rush from his body: head, face, chest, and back. His entire body covered in perspiration. There was so much sweat that it dripped down his body and gathered in a puddle underneath where Chu Yang stood, growing at a steady rate…
After he stood still for a while, Chu Yang opened his eyes and shook his head, “After all of that and still no breakthrough!”
Ji Mo and the rest almost fell to the ground in shock!
Without spending less than an hour in training, he had accomplished three extreme breakthroughs. This number itself was enough to scare the average individual yet he was complaining that he did not break through?
How do you want to break through?
In an hour, they all had extreme breakthroughs, but they knew well that their breakthroughs were due to pressure from this monster; but Chu Yang had pressured himself to break through.
The difference between extrinsic and intrinsic motivations! There was a vast difference between both methods!
“Bo… boss!” Ji Mo stuttered, “Boss, how did you do it?”
Ji Mo, Luo Ke Di, and Dong Wu Shang’s eyes shined as they stared at Chu Yang.
“It’s very simple!” Chu Yang smiled coolly, “Each time I train, I think of a person lying dead in the wild of Jiang Hu without any arms or legs. I tell myself that if I don’t break through now, tomorrow, the person rotting on the ground would be me!”
“I don’t want to be the one rotting on the ground!” Chu Yang laughed and continued, “Therefore, the only thing I could do is break through!”
It was such a simple rationale yet it made Ji Mo and the rest reflect deeply. Even if you were going to pressure yourself, you don’t have to be that cruel!
“As a man, you have to be tough on yourself!” Chu Yang seemed to understand their thoughts and concerns as he continued in a solemn tone, “If we aren’t cruel to ourselves, the enemy will be the ones who are cruel to us. It is acceptable if we aren’t cruel to ourselves just once. However, the enemy only needs to be cruel to us once and we stand to lose everything!”
“You are already aware of this method of extreme breakthrough. Yet, I have to warn you. With your body strength, you should never do this more than five times a day!” Chu Yang said solemnly, “Martial artists such as us and especially those who have reached the ranks of Martial Great Masters like yourselves need to be aware. Although you might have greater endurance than ordinary people, this is actually the critical period in which you are conditioning your bones!”
“Once you achieve the Revered Martial Artist state, you will begin to condition your organs. However, before doing that you have to go through the foundation in which you will be conditioning your bones. If you have more than five extreme breakthroughs per day, your bones will not be able to handle the stress. While this may not be obvious, the moment your organs get shocked, you will find that your bodies will no longer be able to endure it any longer! At that time, even though you might train yourselves to death, you will never be able to advance!
“You must remember this!”
The four solemnly nodded.
“Good. Let’s get some rest!” Chu Yang did not say anything further. These guys were all smart enough to understand and he did not need to repeat himself.
Looking at Chu Yang disappearing from sight, the four fell into silence. If a little Martial Artist could do this, why couldn’t a bunch of Great Masters like them?
This was unbearable! Too shameful…!!!
“Oh… there is one more thing I forgot to tell you. After training each day, you must keep the court clean and level. If there is a single thing which is out of place, all four of you shall wash my socks and underwear!” Chu Yang’s voice rang out faintly from inside.
“Damn! Other than giving punishments to wash socks and underwear, don’t you know anything else?” Luo Ke Di shouted out in discontent.
“I bet that when the boss comes back and sees a mess, I will bow down to anyone who is able to escape the socks and underwear washing duties!” Gu Du Xing mocked as he pointed to the little court, “There is something I have yet to share with you guys. Boss is a man of his word. If he says he will do it, he will!”
“Aaah!” The four looked at each other and shrieked loudly.
“Where are the tools” Ji Mo shouted, “How can we clean without tools?”
“Your arms and legs… are they not tools?” Gu Du Xing asked with an abnormal innocence, “How could you train if you use tools?”
The four immediately looked up at the heavens and sighed as they were filled with discontent. I may not be the heir of the clan, but I am still a young master! How did I turn into a laborer here?
Despite how they thought, none of them dared to stand still. Every single one of them mobilized into action as they began to use all of their power in their arms and legs to level the little court. Some of them even went to the extent of activating their martial power and palmed the ground in preparation to stand out more at training the next day…
Regardless of whether they were ignorant of had conflicting emotions toward Chu Yang being superior in terms of position relative to them, they were unaware that they were doing everything that Chu Yang instructed! Moreover, they were very concerned about the way Chu Yang viewed them to the point that they were afraid they gave off a bad impression…
This was such a splendid start! Gu Du Xing casually leaned against the door frame and watched over the four of them laboring away with satisfaction. He had gained some new found admiration towards Chu Yang. How was such a young individual capable of developing and having so many strange ideas in his head?
“Damn you! Gu Du, don’t you feel bad just standing there watching us work?” Ji Mo cried out angrily. The other three joined in with accusations…
Gu Du Xing laughed and quickly got into a verbal battle.
Chu Yang went straight down to the secret chamber. The moment he came in Mo Cheng Yu hastily ran toward him and asked, “Did the Hei Mo people come?”
“Ah! No!” Chu Yang was surprised.
“Was there fighting above earlier?” Mo Cheng Yu had a serious countenance.
“Ah… ah… just my little martial brothers having a match!” Chu Yang finally understood.
He suddenly remembered that the forces of Hei Mo were essentially neutralized and he could let Mo Qing Wu and Mo Cheng Yu out to get some fresh air now.
He immediately acted on it. As a habit, he picked up Mo Qing Wu, who was holding her nose. He smiled and said, “Xiao Wu, let big brother carry you outside to play, okay?”
“Yay!” Mo Qing Wu’s face was filled with happiness. The past few days have been suffocating. The most horrible thing was that Chu Yang only had one temporary latrine in there. And while Mo Qing Wu was young, she was obsessed with hygiene and being neat…
Mo Qing Wu held her nose and shook her head, “Brother Chu Yang, you are too stinky!”
Chu Yang smiled shamefully. He was in such a rush that he did not change clothes or wash up before running in here…
When Mo Cheng Yu came out, he glanced over the situation in the court and was in shock; he could barely believe his eyes.
In the court, five people were working with full force. They were pressing with their hands and stomping with their feet to get the ground leveled. Each one was covered in mud like little monkeys playing with dirt. Upon closer observations, Mo Cheng Yu found it was impossible to close his mouth.
The punk with his butt in the air exerting great energy and pushing dirt with his hands, isn’t he Luo Ke Di of the Luo clan? Wasn’t he the second young master who was famous being idle? Isn’t he the one with the nickname Coyote?
And the one… carefully stomping on the ground with his feet, isn’t he the second young master of the Black Saber clan, Dong Wu Shang?
The one lying flat on the ground and squinting to check if the ground in front of him is leveled, isn’t he the second young master of the Ji clan, Ji Mo?
And… and… the punk using his feet to smoothen out the ground, isn’t he the number one heavenly talent of the Gu clan, Gu Du Xing? As for the frail kid, I don’t know. But… he does not seem to be weaker than these other kids…
Could it be that Chu Yang was gathering all the second little ancestors of Middle Three Heavens to come here and do hard labor for him?
This… this is too inhumane!
According to Mo Cheng Yu’s knowledge, even if their birth fathers asked them to do these menial chores, they would ignore it. However, somehow Chu Yang was able to get them to obediently do manual labor…
This was proof of real skill!
Is Chu Yang not afraid of the clans finding out about this and killing him?
Mo Cheng Yu was an important King level martial master in the Mo clan. He was also Mo Qing Wu’s guardian and guide; therefore it was natural that he recognized these talents! These guys were potential future allies of the Mo clan; not recognizing them was not an option!
While these second young masters did not have the right to be heirs, they only needed to maintain their second young master positions and they would become important people in their clans in the future!
