Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 188 You Yun's Luck
Diwu Qing Rou stopped talking and poured himself another cup of wine as he drank it slowly.
The bright full moon slowly began to drift towards the west. In the pavilion, the shadows of the trees slowly moved along with the moon.
“I would want to personally write a letter to Tie Bu Tian to bring back Number One’s family.” Diwu Qing Rou suddenly spoke quietly after drinking five to six cups of wine consecutively.
“Do you think Tie Bu Tian would be agreeable to this?” Han Bu Chu was startled. Diwu Qing Rou was planning on writing the letter himself. This was representative of his attitude towards the situation! He was using his own name to request something from Tie Bu Tian so he could be insulted?
How much prestige would he lose with such a gesture?
“Tie Bu Tian will agree!” Diwu Qing Rou said casually, “Send orders to Dong Wu Fa. Tell him to attack two of Iron Cloud’s cities as quickly as possible, and open Iron Cloud’s door!”
“I want to tell Tie Bu Tian that if he returns Number One’s family, Great Zhao will give him back these two cities!”
Once again, Han Bu Chu was startled by the words of Diwu Qing Rou but didn’t dare to speak up or say a single thing. This was clearly a rash decision made by Diwu Qing Rou because of his rage. This showed the impact of Number One’s death on him.
“This will be the very last time that I, Diwu Qing Rou, makes a decision based on my emotions!” Diwu Qing Rou looked up to the sky and said softly, “Number One is worthy of me doing so!”
Han Bu Chu finally understood.
The person Diwu Qing Rou valued most in life was Number One. In other words, only Number One was capable of causing Diwu Qing Rou to lose control of his emotions.
However, Number One was now dead! Therefore, Diwu Qing Rou decisive action was a way of saying farewell to his past.
This was likely to result in another large battle! However, no matter how many people from the two countries perished, it would be a funeral rite for his brother! This was done to bury Diwu Qing Rou’s life from ten years ago!
From here on out, Diwu Qing Rou would no longer have any more weaknesses. This impulsiveness might have seemed reckless but it was a show of his terrifying power. In addition to that, Han Bu Chu was certain that Diwu Qing Rou had already prepared his next step.
“Yun He being in Iron Cloud is not a long term solution. If they are discovered before the two King level masters recover from the injuries, the consequences would be unthinkable!” Diwu Qing Rou’s eyes started to show evidence of intoxication, yet his thoughts continued to remain lucid. He said with conviction, “This battle is my warning! The letter is my statement! At that time, Yun He will be there to officially welcome Number One’s family back home. Anyone who dares to stop them shall be killed!”
Han Bu Chu began to perspire profusely.
“Is the family over there really Number One’s family?” Han Bu Chu was unable to understand why someone like Number One would do such a foolish thing as bringing his real family to Iron Cloud!
“Before he left, Number One was ready for anything!” Diwu Qing Rou’s eyes revealed a trace of sadness, “I will nurture and raise his descendants well!”
Han Bu was speechless.
This was something that no one could have imagined. Even Chu Yang had not expected for Tang Xin Sheng’s wife and child in Iron Cloud Nation to actually have been his wife and child.
This person was truly a madman!
Iron Cloud Citadel had turned into a boiling pot!
Everywhere was in an uproar!
The power of the masses was infinite, and the wisdom of the masses was endless.
After Chu Yang issued his command, the three gangster bosses gathered and discussed with one another. They then came up with a prudent approach: Divide Iron Cloud citadel into five respective areas, east, west, south, north, and center. Then go through every single street and household.
Then they carried out their duties and herded all outsiders from these five areas into an empty field like pigs. Official Cheng Zi Ang would then work with the justice department to investigate and any suspicious person would be arrested straight away…
As a result of this extensive search, the citadel exploded into chaos. However, through this, they managed to uncover many spies. Some of these spies were easily shaken upon their capture, fearful of death and without any loyalty. In addition to that, they didn’t know how to keep their mouths shut. After a little “friendliness”, they did not hesitate to reveal information about their movements as well as their comrades on the outside…
In this process, they were able to capture one Silver Knight Rider! This was a true anomaly…
Almost twenty thousand people joined in this mission. Among these twenty thousand were Iron Cloud Citadel’s guards, military, and royal guards et cetera.
After two days and one night of searching, the entire search area had been reduced by half. It was now midnight but they continued to carry on. Moreover, more than ten thousand thugs who had been mobilized were extremely spirited in their searches, almost as if they were on some sort of drug…
Even Cheng Zi Ang was unable to handle the overwhelming workload. His eyes were reddened from staying awake all night. However, the three big bosses were bright and full of energy…
“The situation is becoming more severe! If we continue like this, they will find us before we are even able to succeed!” In his temporary hiding place, Cheng Yun He tried to think of countermeasures.
Yin Wu Fa had recovered thirty percent of his martial energy thanks to the powerful effect of Jade Spirit Ginseng. Kong Shang Xin, on the other hand, did not recover as much. With both of them in such a precarious state, they were unable to contribute to their situation.
If it was just the two of them, things would have been much simpler. However, the issue now was that they had over fifty to sixty people. If the search continued, confrontation might be inevitable and they were too big of a target…
“The only solution is to split up!” Cheng Yun He said, “We have to split up once again to avoid being captured by the enemies. Even if they catch us, the numbers would not match up, and they would have to let us go due to insufficient evidence.”
“No! Doing so would further weaken our forces; wouldn’t we become sitting targets at that point?” Yin Wu Fa said, “In my opinion, we should break out and escape!”
“Break out?” Cheng Yun He said icily, “Twenty thousand soldiers currently surround the citadel. This is the capital of Iron Cloud, the heart of Iron Cloud Nation. Are you suggesting that all of us fly straight back to Great Zhao?”
“Let’s do as Official Cheng said!” Kong Shang Xin said sadly, “Breaking out is absolutely impossible! If a ninth grade Emperor level master was surrounded by twenty thousand soldiers, he would probably die from exhaustion. Let alone us…”
Cheng Yun He frowned and said, “It will be easy for me! I am a scholarly person who does not know any martial arts. They will not suspect me. However, it is likely that they would be highly suspicious of everyone else! One impatient person would be enough to destroy everything!”
“Especially you two… your appearances are too obvious. Plus, your wounds have not completely healed. In the event that the both of you are discovered, your situation will not be very optimistic!” Cheng Yun He continued, “If you two King level leaders don’t mind, you can hide in this cellar… Would that be okay?”
Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa simultaneously rolled their eyes in disbelief.
The words that Cheng Yun He was saying were meant for them. They were the two who were the proudest and least impatient.
However, the two of them were both King level leaders who held such honorable positions. How could they possibly hide in a cellar like mice? That was why he carefully said everything in advance…
“It’s just a temporary measure to avoid the storm…” Cheng Yun He said.
“Fine!” Kong Shang Xin frowned, “I was hunted by people in Upper Three Heavens for seven or eight years; I am used to this crap…”
“Me, too! When I was on an assassination mission back then, I even went into a latrine pit…” Yin Wu Fa held his breath and said angrily.
Cheng Yun He was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.
The place they were hiding in was at the center of Iron Cloud Citadel, not too far from the royal palace. As the saying goes, “it is darkest under the lamp.”
“On another note, I will have to find a way for Gao Wei Cheng to get Du Shi Qing to create some sort of diversion; the only problem is that it might be too dangerous. Whether Gao Wei Cheng will be able to do this or not… at this point, we no longer have a lot of choices…” Cheng Yun He frowned as he muttered to himself and became silent in the middle of his thought.
“Let’s split up; disperse immediately! If you can, update your status once a day! If you cannot, don’t force it. Your safety is more important!”
Following Cheng Yun He’s order, the fifty to sixty people that were hiding there left as quickly as they came. Only ten people remained to protect Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa. These people were all martial experts; if each of them tried to escape from the soldiers on their own, it would have been like child’s play.
Given Cheng Yun He’s arrangement, if nothing unexpected happened, the two King level leaders hiding in Iron Cloud Citadel would not be discovered. Of course, they would probably lose a few people, but they would be able to preserve the majority of their force.
You Yun was a Martial Warrior over twenty years old. He had been dreaming of joining Bu Tian Pavilion for a long time. However, his cultivation level was too low and had been eliminated in the first round. In his depression, he did not join the rest of the citadel in the manhunt. Instead, he drank until he was completely drunk. After that, he left the place in a barely conscious state; the only thing he could feel was the alcohol rising up to his head. He did not know where he was going; he just needed a place to lie down and snore loudly…
His beautiful dream was suddenly disturbed by the need to urinate. Dreamily, with his eyes barely open, he undid his pants and started his business…
Halfway through, he finally became a little sober and opened his eyes to look around. He was standing next to a small pile of wood that someone had placed next to a door…
As the drunkenness wore away, he felt the chill of the autumn wind. He shivered, and urine ran down his pants. He instinctively cursed and used his fingers to stop the flow. As he was about to continue, a shadow flashed overhead. Right after, three people flew out. And then they were followed by an entire group of people in black…
You Yun was petrified; he almost yelled out but was able to quickly hold his mouth shut with his hands. However, he had forgotten about the internal force that he was controlling before he put his hands to his mouth. His pee started flowing again, and not an ounce was wasted as all of the urine soaked his pants; yet, he was still unable to recover from the shock …
He vaguely heard two people saying to each other in a low voice, “…King level leader is here… No, here…”
“Silence!” The other person hastily said and flew away…
You Yun’s hair stood on end; he immediately thought of the Citadel-wide manhunt that had been going on these past few days… Could it be these people? Hearing them said these words… Could it be that they are inside?
You Yun’s eyes immediately stood up cautiously. Some of the wood from the wood pile behind him fell down and made a few soft noises. He hastily held his nose and made a couple of cat sounds that he had learned. Then he slowly snuck away… It was not until he was more than a hundred feet away that he started to run as fast as his legs could carry him. His mind was filled with satisfaction: No wonder my father gave me the name You Yun; I really am lucky… My pee can actually find spies; this is truly a credit to the heavens…
