Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 181 Control The World!
“Given the current strength of Bu Tian Pavilion alone, this cannot be accomplished.” Mo Tian Ji continued, “However, King of Hell could do it and be successful. This person does not like to take risks but if the situation requires such risks to be taken, he will not hesitate to do so. It has only been less than two hours ever since I have arrived at the citadel. Ever since I entered the inn, I didn’t even have the time to put down my belongings before you arrived. With such a well-linked intelligence network, Tie Bu Tian might be a possibility but he would not take the risk.”
“In addition, you said, ‘blow the water of Nine Heavens dry with my purple jade flute. Heavenly secrets might be difficult to change, but they are easily found.’ These words clearly show that you have already discovered who I am.”
“King of Hell Chu has the surname Chu, and your name is Chu Yang…”
Mo Tian Ji casually concluded, “Therefore, you are King of Hell Chu!”
At that point in time, the tea was just ready. Mo Tian Ji took out a teacup and gently placed it in front of Chu Yang. He tilted his hand slightly before slowly pouring the green tea into the cup. The steam rose covering his face. After he had filled Chu Yang’s cup, he began to pour another cup of tea for himself and said his last words on the subject, “I have been given so many clues. If you aren’t King of Hell Chu, then I, Mo Tian Ji must be blind!”
“Haha. You are really amazing!” Chu Yang looked at his tea with interest and said, “Could this be the legendary Tian Ji tea?”
“No!” Mo Tian Ji slowly sat down and replied, “Tian Ji tea requires Tian Ji tea leaves, Tian Ji teapot, and Tian Ji water. In addition to all those requirements, it also has to be made by my own hands. Since I am out and about in Jiang Hu, you can only drink tea I made from Tian Ji tea leaves. So it is not a true Tian Ji tea.”
“So that’s it!” Chu Yang lifted up the teacup and took a sip. Then he smiled and said, “In fact, I do not sense the Tian Ji aroma.”
Mo Tian Ji smiled and replied, “If you are willing, you will get to experience the Tian Ji aroma one day.”
This statement indicated that if Chu Yang was to become friends with him, Chu Yang would get to know what kind of person he was!
“Yes!” Chu Yang nodded, “But this tea is too high class; I am afraid I cannot afford to drink too much of it.”
Mo Tian Ji thoughtfully looked at him for a while. Then he asked, “Is My little sister well?”
From the moment they met till now, he had been composed. However, at that instant where he asked this question, an anxious and worried expression appeared in his eyes.
He had been keeping himself from asking and was instead using tea as a method to calm himself down. However, as time passed, he could no longer restrain himself and maintain his composure. The concern that Mo Tian Ji had for his little sister surpassed that of ordinary siblings.
Furthermore, Mo Tian Ji was able to sense something ominous in Chu Yang’s words. You have saved my little sister, how was it that you could not afford to drink my tea? Usually, saving my little sister would have allowed for you to drink my tea for the rest of your life yet you said that you could not afford to. This suggests that something might have happened to my little sister!
While Mo Tian Ji did not say these words out loud, his mind already knew. He was apprehensive.
“There is only one thing in which I find difficult to understand.” Chu Yang continued to drink his tea in a casual manner. “You have always been well known for having a superior intellect and being a thorough planner. Almost nothing could be kept from your eyes. However, the moment you heard about some ancient remains, you jumped at the opportunity without suspecting that it could have been a trap.”
Chu Yang slammed the teacup onto the table and looked up Mo Tian Ji. His gaze was as sharp as a saber; he asked coldly, “This does not fit your intelligent character. This is also the cause for Xiao Wu getting ambushed and injured. I want to hear your explanation.”
Mo Tian Ji gripped tightly onto his teacup. And while he was still looking down, Chu Yang could feel a pair of icy eyes glaring at him from behind that black hair.
“Who are you that I have to explain it to you?” Mo Tian Ji replied coldly. “Even if you refuse to tell me, I can already guess a couple of things. Perhaps you found that your little sister was a hindrance and in competition with you for the ruling position in the clan?” Chu Yang said fiercely, “Your sister has always been close to you and everyone knows this as a fact. Therefore, if something unfortunate happens to her, nobody would even suspect you! Isn’t that right?”
“What are you trying to say?” Mo Tian Ji slowly lifted his head and looked at Chu Yang, “Are you saying that I, Mo Tian Ji, am the sort of person who would be willing to do such a thing?”
“If something unfortunate happened to your little sister at the very same time that the eldest young master, Mo Tian Yun left, he cannot avoid being suspected. If the clan gets angry and blames Mo Tian Yun, then you would have your opportunity. After all, you are a talent who is comparable to Mo Tian Yun. All you need is a single opportunity to replace him.”
Chu Yang continued coldly, “By losing a little sister, you would get a lifetime of glory and power!” He tilted his entire body forward, positioning himself right next to Mo Tian Ji’s face, “While you might feel guilty for the rest of your life, this deal is very beneficial. Am I right, second young master?”
Mo Tian Ji breathed heavily and stared at Chu Yang. Suddenly, bam!!! The teacup in his hand shattered into little pieces. He slammed his hand into the big table, and it turned into a pile of wood pieces. Mo Tian Ji yelled furiously, “Chu Yang, don’t use your evil standards to measure the heart of a good person. I would sooner kill myself than bring any harm to my little sister! What do you know? You are just making wild guesses!” Mo Tian Ji gritted his teeth, and, with burning red eyes, he said, “If it were not for the fact that you saved my little sister, I would have killed you already!”
“Swoosh”. The old man who went out earlier had entered through the window. He asked, “Second young master, is everything okay?”
Eyes filled with killing aura, he looked in Chu Yang’s direction.
“Leave! Get out!” Mo Tian Ji pointed to the window and screamed loudly.
The old man hesitated, then disappeared out the window again.
“What’s wrong? Did I hit a nerve?” Chu Yang looked at him mockingly, feeling totally refreshed.
In his previous life, Mo Tian Ji had never once lost control. Even if someone smashed all the bones in his body, he would still remain composed.
However, Chu Yang knew that there was a single person who was capable of making Mo Tian Ji lose his composure and this was none other than Mo Qing Wu.
The love that Mo Tian Ji had for his little sister could not be any stronger.
Therefore, Chu Yang used Mo Qing Wu to attack him.
Otherwise, he could not have gotten Mo Tian Ji to speak the truth. Chu Yang had always been suspicious of what happened at that particular incident. Moreover, he believed that Mo Tian Ji was not capable of making such a silly mistake.
As for the part about Mo Tian Ji using Mo Qing Wu to frame Mo Tian Yun, Chu Yang was just making a wild accusation to make him angry.
No one knew Mo Tian Ji’s arrogance better than Chu Yang.
Mo Tian Ji was by nature very arrogant. Success for him meant perfection. If anything or a plan was not completely perfect, he would never agree to it! Therefore, he could not have possibly harmed his beloved sister just to frame his older brother!
Mo Tian Ji panted and slowly sat down. He asked quietly, “How is Xiao Wu?”
“You should answer me first!” Chu Yang replied coldly.
Mo Tian Ji took a deep breath, and suddenly became composed again. He knew that if he did not speak first, King of Hell Chu would never give in.
“In this life, you are the first person capable of prying such confidential information from of me.” Mo Tian Ji replied softly.
“King of Hell Chu is indeed formidable!” Mo Tian Ji smiled and continued, “You will pay for this someday!”
“I am not interested in flattery!” Chu Yang said casually, “Your position as second young master of the Mo clan does not scare me either!”
“That day, when we arrived at Connecting Clouds Mountain, we heard of a rumor about some ancient ruins. However, I did not pay too much attention to it.” His gaze became distant as he recounted the events which occurred, “But when I saw a fragment of Purple Crystal, I started to believe.”
“This was it!” Mo Tian Ji took out a piece of Purple Crystal and placed it on the table.
“We found this under the bed in the house of the hunter that we were staying with. He had no idea what it was. At the time, Elder Fang felt an energy fluctuation in the room and carefully searched the pile of rubbish which was under the bed. When we asked the hunter, he said he did not remember when he picked it up. He only remembered that it was on that mountain.”
Mo Tian Ji smiled wryly.
Chu Yang took the piece of Purple Crystal and held it up to his eyes. It was a thin hexagon, only about as thick as two sheets of paper. Even though Mo Tian Ji had washed it, there was still some residual dirt from over the years.
“I could not tell that it was Purple Crystal when I looked at it.” Mo Tian Ji smiled.
Purple Crystal was considered as a priceless item in this world. Within it was the energy to increase a person’s strength and mentality by one level. Only a handful of people from the big clans knew about this item.
“If you want to know whether it is Purple Crystal, you have to look through the light of a lamp or the sun.” Mo Tian Ji stated.
Chu Yang brought the Purple Crystal next to a lamp and looked curiously. He suddenly became shocked.
There was indeed a secret hidden inside this hexagonal Purple Crystal.
A pattern appeared in his palm. They were beautifully written words: Master the world!
Master the world!
Chu Yang was startled. These words were nothing to an ordinary person, but to a martial artist, these words were representative of a powerful person!
Three thousand years ago, there was a martial artist in the Nine Heavens who did not start training in martial arts until he was twenty years old. He began in an ordinary sect, but with his supreme wisdom, he improved the cultivation techniques. In Lower Three Heavens, he achieved the state of Revered Martial Artist. After that, he proceeded to the Middle Three heavens and joined a clan. He created his own techniques based on the techniques of this clan. And just like that, he continued to advance. Eventually, when he reached the Upper Three Heavens, he dominated the entire realm for the remainder of his lifetime.
Moreover, he had achieved everything in only ninety years!
