Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 165 I Hope To Have!
The night was long and quiet as the clouds gently floated by in the sky. A gust of wind blew quietly past them and under the moonlight, Chu Yang’s youthful face remained unchanged. A faint smile appeared on his face as he quietly began to speak.
The rest of the other young men sat around him with their arms wrapped around their knees listening attentively. At some point, Ji Mo and Luo Ke Di had returned and sat quietly at the edge of the group and Chu Yang continued to speak, everyone’s eyes were shone brightly.
The surface of Emerald Flow Lake moved gently and waves continued to lap against the lakeshore, this provided the ambience of a peaceful gathering which made the time even more memorable and meaningful.
“Martial brothers are formed from blood and tears, not just words!”
“Being able to find good martial brothers is far more difficult than finding a good wife!” Chu Yang smiled gently and said, “I hope I will be able to have this, what about you guys?”
“We would also want to have this!” The young men said in unison as they smiled with great anticipation.
Everyone felt that this particular night had been incredibly beautiful.
They all sat quietly. Mo Qing Wu had conveniently sat on Chu Yang’s lap without stirring. No one had the heart to break such a beautiful atmosphere filled with hopes and dreams.
Mo Cheng Yu sat quietly on the roof. He had heard everything that Chu Yang had said despite his quiet voice and couldn’t help but smile from his heart. He began to reminisce about the times when he was young and was also cultivating with his martial brothers.
They experienced everything together side by side as they advanced together in Jiang Hu. They marched together, got drunk together, made mischief together… did everything together…
Mo Cheng Yu sighed softly. How many years has it been? How many have disappeared? How many of them are still around?
It was at this moment that Mo Cheng Yu came to a decision. Once he returned, he would seek out his martial brothers to have a merry time of eating and drinking until they were satisfied. That would be great… as he imagined the good times they had.
A while later, Dong Wu Shang suddenly laughed out loudly. He then got up and jumped to the little court that had finished fixing up earlier. The light of his saber shone as he executed the Black Saber clan’s sharp and fierce moves in slashes. He was pressuring himself.
The others looked at each other and began to chuckle. They also started to train, launching their own moves each one of them intensely practicing. All of them appeared extremely fierce in the eyes of the others.
If they wanted to become martial brothers, then neither of them could be inferior to another. None of them wanted to look up at their martial brothers at the peak while they were stuck at the bottom.
Chu Yang looked at them and smiled; a feeling inside him rose up in his dantian and flooded towards the Nine Tribulations Sword.
“You have finally managed to understand what brotherhood is all about!” The sword spirit’s voice gently rose up in his head and seemed to carry with it a trace of happiness, “While it is still a little one sided, but in a world so lacking in affection, you just had a taste of the meaning of brotherhood. I will tell you something important today: Love is the most important part of cultivation!”
“Love is the most important part…” Chu Yang softly repeated it, trying to understanding and internalize its true meaning as if there was something a little more than met the eye.
The Nine Tribulations Sword rose up fiercely in his dantian. Suddenly, a strange aura shot through Chu Yang’s meridians. The sword spirit seemed to be somewhat satisfied and spoke with a relaxed voice, “I will reward you today and no longer restrict your advancement of cultivation. Brotherhood is a form of enlightenment in martial arts. Today you have demonstrated that you have learnt enough about that!”
In the court, five people were exhausted, but they remained stubborn and fierce. They refused to fall and used their sheer physical power in hope of achieving an extreme breakthrough.
Suddenly, there was a faint fluctuation that reverberated through the court.
Given that they were heavenly talents of the great clans, they naturally were very well acquainted with such a phenomenon. This was because they themselves had experienced it many times themselves. Each time they experienced it, they felt proud and a great sense of accomplishment.
Everyone looked about trying to find the origin of the aura.
That aura calmly moved a little before it suddenly became fierce like ten thousand galloping steeds, boiling and roaring.
Everyone turned in surprise.
They saw Chu Yang holding Mo Qing Wu in his lap. Despite the calm expression on his face as he sat peacefully, the all-encompassing aura was fiercely pouring out of his body.
Chu Yang broke through?
Everyone’s mouth fell open in shock; the only exception was Gu Du Xing, who was not the least bit surprised. He only smiled.
This weirdo, today’s events must have affected his state of mind. I can’t believe he managed to break through so fast.
The intense and thick aura suddenly disappeared. Fifth grade Martial Artist!
Ji Mo and Dong Wu Shang could not help but sigh. Fifth grade Martial Artist. Who knows how long he has been stuck there? A breakthrough is no big deal.
Everyone looked at each other and continued to train.
However, not long after, that shocking aura once again faintly flooded the court. Ji Mo’s group was now in shock! Who is it this time? Chu Yang just broke through; surely it cannot be him!
However, after looking around, they discovered: It was Chu Yang!
It’s Chu Yang again!
Ji Mo’s mouth opened wide; after a while, he managed to spit out, “F*!”
Luo Ke Di and Dong Wu Shang were also in a daze. Is breaking through really that easy? To breakthrough each grade, you would really need a lot of power. And such power needs be accumulated over time!
The faint aura grew gradually grew clearer. Finally, it exploded with a sound that seemed to resonate loudly in everyone’s mind.
With this noise, everyone’s jaws seemed to have dropped to the ground. Another breakthrough… breakthrough again!!
Sixth grade Martial Artist!
On the roof, Mo Cheng Yu could not help but smile wryly. He was a King level master; thus even though he was recovering from his serious injuries, his senses were still much keener than those below. From the very moment Chu Yang broke through fifth grade Martial Artist, he had been paying attention. Through his observation, he realized that Chu Yang only stopped at low-level of fifth grade Martial Artist for a moment.
After that, his body gradually grew stronger, and he advanced to mid-level of fifth grade. At that moment, Mo Cheng Yu was already stunned.
However, Chu Yang’s progress did not stop there and he continued to advance. As time passed, he was at the top-level, and, a little after, he had managed to reach the peak. Finally, he did not stop but broke through sixth grade!
What a monster…!!!
When he saw Chu Yang break through the way he did, Mo Cheng Yu could not help but feel a little more anxious.
“Don’t be so surprised; the boss is always like that! Each time he breaks through, he does it continuously!!” Gu Du Xing smiled mockingly as he spoke.
After Gu Du Xing finished speaking, everyone regained their composure and continued to torture their bodies to their extreme limits.
After about an hour passed by, that faint shocking aura suddenly burst out once again.
“Foo… foo…” Ji Mo once again searched all around and discovered it was Chu Yang again. He finally fell to the ground. His whole body shook, his mouth twitched, and his eyes rolled as he spoke with a trembling voice, “This… motherf*… this… motherf*…!!!”
As for Dong Wu Shang, he was tongue-tied. He looked blankly at Chu Yang, his mind no longer able to process what was going on.
As for Luo Ke Di, his eyes rolled and his jaw dropped…
He had another break through again…
He continuously broke through three grades in a row. Moreover, it seemed as though he was going to continue to the peak seventh grade before stopping.
On the roof, Mo Cheng Yu almost stumbled to the ground.
He had consecutively broken through three grades! This seemed only possible if a person consumed a multitude of precious herbal elixirs and somehow managed to maintain control and not get killed by such a powerful force. Only by doing that would he be able to achieve such results!
But through cultivation, taking each step steadily and breaking through like this, this was the first time he witnessed such a thing!
Moreover… when this kid broke through, he was holding a little figure in his arms: Mo Qing Wu!
Usually, as people broke through, a little disturbance would be enough for things to go wrong. In fact, the sound of a dog barking could have a serious side effect. This fellow seemed as though he had turned everything upside down, by breaking through three grades while holding a little girl!
While Mo Qing Wu was very well-behaved and was sat quietly without moving when Chu Yang broke through, she was still a living, breathing human being!
“Well… Ji Mo, with your qualifications, you are considered a heavenly talent in the Ji clan. I heard that year your quickest speed was breaking through one grade in three days, correct?” Gu Du Xing’s gaze showed a mysterious expression. It was the first time he smiled and spoke to Ji Mo with such an enthusiastic tone.
“Get lost! Thank you for your damned concern!” Ji Mo yelled furiously. There was a freak who had just broken through three grades within an hour! How could he boast about breaking through one grade in three days…
Gu Du Xing, you are really a genius when it comes to mocking people…!
“From now on, I will fight to the death with anyone who mocks me as a heavenly talent!” Ji Mo covered his face and sprawled on the ground; his legs curled up to his chest in a fetal position.
He was so embarrassed he could die!
Any sort of genius would be embarrassed and envious in front of Chu Yang!
“Brother Chu Yang, are you finally done with your breakthroughs?” Seeing Chu Yang opened his eyes, Mo Qing Wu who was curled up on Chu Yang’s lap looked up and asked shakily.
“Uh, I’m done!” Chu Yang smiled calmly and gently stroked her hair.
“I was afraid to bother you, and didn’t dare to move!” Mo Qing Wu pouted, “My stomach hurts, my legs ache, my arms are uncomfortable, even my butt is sore!!!”
“Ah… Let me massage it for you!!” Chu Yang smiled coaxingly.
“Yes! Here… here… massage gently, here, here as well!” Mo Wu continued to instruct Chu Yang while feeling very pleased. She suddenly giggled, “That tickles!!”
Finally, all of her arms and legs were massaged. The little miss suddenly stood up and lay over Chu Yang’s lap and pointed to her butt, “This part hurts too…”
Chu Yang started sweating profusely!
Massaging her butt, Chu Yang suddenly had a different vision in his head.
If it was seven or eight years from now and she asks me to massage like this, then…
All of a sudden, Chu Yang’s throat suddenly became dry, and he silently cursed himself: Animal! You actually have this kind of thought! You will be struck down by the heavens!
“Brother Chu Yang, that’s enough!” Mo Qing Wu said in annoyance, “What are you holding that’s poking my stomach like this? It hurts!”
Then she reached out in an attempt to grab it…
“Ah… cough…” Chu Yang hastily put the little miss aside and stood up. He laughed loudly and walked into the court, “How is everyone’s training coming along? Ah, why are you looking at me like that? Do I have something on my face?”
Everyone stared at him bitterly before groaning helplessly.
Ji Mo said with a funeral face, “We were fooled…”
Luo Ke Di nodded in agreement, “We were fooled…”
