Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 171 Playing And Fooling Around!
If Tang Xin Sheng wasn’t dead, we could just let them come and rescue him. After that, all we would need to do is tail and gather them up all at once. In doing so, we would be able to annihilate all of them together. Too bad Tang Xin Sheng is already dead.”
“I will send someone with military control to go with you. He is able to mobilize any military group in the citadel.” Tie Bu Tian knew that Chu Yang was going to make a big move this time and thus acted decisively.
“This cannot be delayed! Go immediately.” Chu Yang yelled out his order and Cheng Zi Ang immediately went out with his subordinates.
“Investigate all of the brothels in the citadel. Concentrate anywhere with missing prostitutes and focus your investigation in that particular area!”
“How is the eighth grade Revered Martial Artist who pretended to be Tang Xin Shen?” Chu Yang asked.
“He died together with two enemies!” Wu Qian Qian answered sadly.
“Died with the enemies?” Chu Yang asked in surprise.
“How could an eighth grade Revered Martial Artist die?” Tie Bu Tian asked with some distress.
In this Iron Cloud, an eighth grade Revered Martial Artist would have considered as a top ranking master. Yet, he had perished. Iron Cloud was truly not on the same level as Golden Horse Riders Department.
“He is a person of Hei Mo clan.” Chu Yang rolled his eyes.
“I see.” After knowing that he was a person of the Hei Mo clan, the prince became less distressed.
“However this seems strange; he was an eighth grade Revered Martial Artist and yet he perished together with the enemies? Moreover, in an ambush scenario?” Chu Yang frowned, “Perhaps his opponents were King level masters? Or Command Horse Riders?”
“According to the report from the prison, his opponents were two ninth grade Revered Martial Artists.” Wu Qian Qian looked at the reported and spoke with certainty.
“That makes sense…” Chu Yang frowned and said to Tie Bu Tian, “Your Majesty, it seems Bu Tian Pavilion has to retreat into the shadows. Otherwise, it is likely that the entire pavilion will become their target; we have already become a very large target.”
Tie Bu Tian nodded in agreement, “Yes, Bu Tian Pavilion cannot remain here any longer! Moreover, we don’t have any King level masters to watch over it. This situation is truly dangerous. Fortunately, I have prepared something ahead of time.”
He looked at Chu Yang and smiled, “Do you still remember the first time you came to Bu Tian Pavilion?”
Chu Yang’s eyes lit up.
“I will arrange for military corps to protect that place; they number about thirty thousand soldiers…” Tie Bu Tian continued, “Thirty thousand soldiers will turn that place into a veritable fortress. That would be the most ideal place for Bu Tian Pavilion. Bu Tian Pavilion was not worthy of that place before, but now that they have you, it’s a different story.”
Tie Bu Tian laughed, “Minister Chu, when do you plan to move?”
“The sooner the better.” Chu Yang said, “I am a little worried those bastards from Golden Horse Riders Department will move very quickly and in a relentless manner. We are still a very weak fighting force; I am afraid we will not even be able to withstand one confrontation! While we can use traps to preserve our lives, the destruction of Bu Tian Pavilion is something we should avoid.”
Tie Bu Tian understood Chu Yang’s concern. All of his efforts could not just be poured down the drain. Bu Tian Pavilion was on the rise and was making a huge impact; this was all because of Chu Yang.
“I want to go to the prison and see how the guards are doing their jobs. While I am there, I can see for myself how powerful Diwu Qing Rou’s subordinates are.”
Tie Bu Tian stood up waiting for Chu Yang to say a few polite words and go! But he did not expect King of Hell Chu to say curtly, “Huh? You want to go?”
Then he turned to Wu Qian Qian and asked, “Are there any movements at Cloud Gate Inn?”
“Still nothing, but with the citadel in such chaos, they should be able to guess.” Wu Qian Qian answered.
“No movement… That’s good…” Chu Yang nodded, “Are they sure that there were no King level masters involved in this mission?”
“Yes!” Wu Qian Qian sifted through the documents once more and reasserted, “It is reported that there were no King level masters involved! Otherwise, our damages would have been much greater, and we certainly would not have been able to get ten of them like we did.”
“No King level masters…” Chu Yang frowned, “With a dying, King level leader and there are still no King level leaders involved… Why is this…?”
Wu Qian Qian was stunned. She suddenly thought of one possibility and asked with a trembling voice, “You mean…”
“Yes!” Chu Yang nodded, “This is a scheme to stir the grass and get the snake to come out. The first target is the prince and the second target is me. If something happened at the prison, then surely at least the prince or I would come to check the scene. The moment we show ourselves, they would make their move.”
These words made Tie Bu Tian halt right at the door.
But after a little contemplating, Tie Bu Tian walked on determinedly saying, “All the soldiers and officials laid down their lives for Iron Cloud. If I can’t even give them moral support, I would rather not be a prince.”
“I am not opposed to you going, but I need to remind your two shadow guards that this cannot be taken lightly.” Chu Yang said casually.
From thin air, two faint figures appeared and nodded in Chu Yang’s direction. They then followed Tie Bu Tian out. In the blink of an eye, they left Bu Tian Pavilion.
“I should go out as well.” After Tie Bu Tian’s party left, Chu Yang fell into deep thought and muttered.
“It’s too dangerous!” Wu Qian Qian was terrified!
“I am not stupid enough to wear my mask out; I don’t want to be a tombstone for people to look at!” He laughed proudly, “I have my plans! But I need you to help me with one thing.”
“What is it?”
“I am sure that the King level master is hiding somewhere, and his target is me. While I do not know his exact location, I am certain that he is near here. You, people, should play with him a little and see how long this King level master can endure…”
He then laughed and left…
King level leader Kong had been hiding behind a large tree for four hours.
At this point, he was like a rock. He had been quiet and immobile for four hours!
This kind of hiding had become second nature to him.
He saw the prince of Iron Cloud enter Bu Tian Pavilion with his own eyes. He also observed all the people coming and going, but he was still unable to determine who King of Hell Chu was!
He then saw Tie Bu Tian walk out the door and head towards the prison. He thought that King of Hell Chu would follow the group, but after watching for a while, he discovered that was not the case. He also discovered that there was a thick aura of powerful masters next to Tie Bu Tian and he did not dare to act carelessly.
Therefore, he had to turn back to Bu Tian Pavilion and concentrated on his second target, King of Hell Chu.
King of Hell Chu would have to come out at some point!
His eyes suddenly brightened as he clenched his fists. The front gate of Bu Tian Pavilion suddenly became noisy as a group of people in black came out from inside. Their sharp eyes carefully searched the surroundings checking every bush and corner.
Such a team was not commonplace. They were disciplined and vigilant. Even when Tie Bu Tian came out, there was not such a show.
Kong Shang Xin immediately realized that King of Hell Chu was getting ready to leave!
At this point, he did not care if the person coming out was wearing a mask or not, or if they were young or old; he just needed a person to come out… Kong Shang Xin would immediately make a move.
But after a long while, there were no movements at all. The people in black still stood in an orderly fashion in front of the gate. Then, as if nothing had happened… they all went back in.
His fist went into the tree trunk, and his face was twisted with annoyance. All of that waiting was wasted. King level leader Kong could help but curse in his heart.
Before he could take in another breath, the sounds of footsteps rang out loudly, and the people in black hurriedly ran out once again. They quickly lined up in a defensive formation. Their movements were quick with a hint of hastiness as if they did not prepare ahead of time.
King level master Kong was caught completely off guard and immediately activated his martial energy… He was in such a rush that all of his muscles shook. He gently pulled the great saber from its sheath behind his back. His eyes carefully scanned for a good position to attack from.
Within Bu Tian Pavilion, there was suddenly loud sounds of a horse neighing. These sound drew Kong Shang Xin’s attention even more. He concentrated… this horse… it has to be him.
A horse really did run out.
Good steed; definitely a good steed.
The body of the horse was jet black and as powerful as a dragon. It was so fast it ripped through the wind as it shot out from inside Bu Tian Pavilion.
However, at this point, Kong Shang Xin was so angry he was fuming. It was truly a good steed, but there was not even a ghost on its back.
“Hey…!” There was a loud roar.
Kong Shang Xin became alert once again! King of Hell Chu is finally making his appearance; he is probably planning to jump onto the running horse.
But from within Bu Tian Pavilion, a short person ran out like mad screaming, “Quick! Quickly catch that horse! It’s acting up again…”
The people in black rushed out; after a few jumps, they managed to take control of the horse. The short man finally ran over and spoke breathlessly, “His grandmother! Just because I was a little careless, it managed to run all the way out here. Thank you, big brothers.”
He then led the horse back inside, and the people in black followed in as well.
As Kong Shang Xin watched, his mouth made a big O. He finally understood that the enemies were either putting a show on for him or practicing some kind of special exercise. However, he had a feeling… this scene… seemed to be… them purposefully toying with him.
The more he thought about it, the more annoyed he became. Was it possible that they were playing with him from morning till now?
He felt as if he was no more than a donkey which had been toyed with that he wanted to explode in anger.
Nevertheless, despite how angry and annoyed he was, he was still a powerful master and did not act rashly. Instead, he chose to suppress his anger. Kong Shang Xin knew that if he continued to wait today, he would just be a target for the enemies to play with.
Currently, he had two possible courses of actions to choose from: First, fight directly with his sheer power. This kind of game was definitely orchestrated by King of Hell Chu; therefore, it was certain that he was still inside. However, how could he attack directly?
His second choice was to retreat and wait for another opportunity!
The sun was at its peak and Kong Shang Xin was still lingering indecisively. At this moment, a new situation occurred…
Under the stifling midday sun, on the main road leading to Bu Tian Pavilion, a figure in black suddenly appeared. The person was wearing a ferocious mask as he glided forward.
With each step that person made, the atmosphere on the road seemed to turn cold. While sunlight filled the surroundings, the atmosphere around him was gloomy and cold. This was no different from a ghost appearing in the middle of the day.
