Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 204 Not Right!
Chu Yang looked in Rui Bu Tong’s direction. He had expected this kind of behavior from Rui Bu Tong. The punk was filled with great excitement and even unconsciously licking his lips with his tongue… His demeanor was proof that his lifestyle as a bandit was second nature to him…
“Luo Ke Di has lost his mind.” Ji Mo pulled his hands into his sleeves as his mouth breathed out cold air. Enjoying the feeling of another’s suffering, he said, “It looks like the others are not weak either. I am afraid that second young master Luo would really get beaten to a pulp this time.”
“That’s nothing.” Dong Wu Shang watched in eager anticipation at a high-spirited Luo Ke Di fight in front of him as he said, “This wolf was beaten by us every single day; he has really tired us out. Let’s just let him suffer for a bit.”
Gu Du Xing nodded in agreement as he said, “Pay close attention. We cannot let them beat him to death though. Other than that, we should just let second young master Luo feel a little pain or he will never get smarter.”
Second brother’s words had sealed the fate of second young master Luo. Rui Bu Tong fiercely nodded as he said with satisfaction, “This bastard always aims for my soft spots. He picked on me every single day. This shall be his retribution.”
Therefore, this resulted in all of the brothers standing with their arms folded in laughter as they continued to watch what was about to happen on the sidelines.
As for Big Brother Chu, his face already became pensive the moment they arrived. This caravan did seem a little odd…
The moment he got close to this caravan, the Nine Tribulations Sword point in his dantian suddenly throbbed violently!
It throbbed like a palpitating heart!
This was the first time that Chu Yang had felt such a reaction in this life!
This troubled Chu Yang! Why is the Nine Tribulations Sword suddenly reacting in such a way? Could it be that this caravan has something that piqued Nine Tribulations Sword’s interest?
As he thought, his eyes glanced in the direction of the caravan.
Naturally, he tried to observe to see if they were the group of spies that he had been looking for. However, even before he began to inspect this vehicle from afar, he treated it as though he was inspecting any other vehicle and simply looked out for anything out of the ordinary.
However, after careful observation, he discovered too many abnormalities. At that very moment, Gu Du Xing rode over next to him and said casually, “Big brother, their strength is odd.”
“Odd? Odd how?” Chu Yang asked with a faint smile.
“There is nothing abnormal about them having martial masters.” Gu Du Xing said, “After all, for international merchants, it would have been strange if they did not have any martial masters. However, they are… too calm.”
“If it was indeed a normal merchant caravan, in such a situation, even though the martial masters would remain calm, the ordinary people in the group should at least show some signs of panic. However, these people all remained extremely composed. It seemed as though they were all well acquainted with this sort of situation…” Gu Du Xing said, “Even the military would not have been able to remain as calm as this.”
“Ah, that’s right.” Chu Yang nodded, “Anything else?”
“The strengths of the three Revered level masters are too even.” Gu Du Xing said, “The rest of them are mostly martial artists with more than ten of them being Martial Masters. I am surprised that they have four Great level masters! For a merchant caravan, the strength of such a force is too great.”
“Mmm, anything else?”
“There is… With such powerful strength, why did they choose to swallow their anger? Moreover, they were dealing with a lone juvenile bandit. Choosing to hand over five hundred silver liangs just to avoid a confrontation seems too unusual…”
“Mmm, anything else?”
“Casually handing over five hundred silver liangs just to clear a path when their strength is much stronger than that of their opponent. Unless they were actually a group of rich upcoming merchants who didn’t know what else to do with their money. They must have had some sort of enormous profit that they had gotten in order to do something like that. However, these people are so calm that it seems unlikely for them to be rich upcoming merchants. Moreover, looking at their merchandise, they do not seem to be carrying anything that would allow them to make a large amount of profit.” Gu Du Xing said, “This is really just too strange.”
“Mmm, anything else?”
“Well… That’s all I got from observing them.” Gu Du Xing said haggardly.
“If I am right, these are the people from Golden Horse Riders Department.” Chu Yang said gravely, “Currently, our most important task is finding the injured King level leader and kill him! As for the rest of them, let them live so they would be able to return and report to Diwu Qing Rou.”
“Yes, report. We have caused such chaos in Iron Cloud; surely, Diwu Qing Rou would know about it. Moreover, if we were to kill all of his men in addition to completely destroying his plan to make use the deaths of Tie Shi Cheng and Du Shi Qing, I am afraid he would not be able to withstand such a major setback.” Chu Yang laughed.
Of course, Chu Yang did not actually care if Diwu Qing Rou would have been able to handle it or not. For Chu Yang, it would actually be best if Diwu Qing Rou died from anger; why would he worry about Diwu Qing Rou?
His true intention was to let these people go so that they could give Diwu Qing Rou a message about what was happening in Iron Cloud Citadel. That message was: “Iron Cloud is currently in the midst of doing all they can to solve all of their internal issues!”
Within this time frame, they had started to eliminate traitors and kill spies. This conveyed a clear message: In order to deal with external problems, there must first be internal peace! Tie Bu Tian and King of Hell Chu’s key strategy to success would be first settling these internal affairs within the country.
Thus, Diwu Qing Rou would make sure to watch the situations in Iron Cloud closely. Such is the benefit of being a long distance away from Great Zhao’s headquarters! In order for any kind of news to reach Diwu Qing Rou, it would take at least a day and a night. Thus, he would require at least three days in order to react to the situation!
And in the time frame of three days, many things could be accomplished!
But right now, Chu Yang had a new thought. It was true enough that in order to deal with external problems, there has to be internal peace! However, right now as I am solving the internal issues, I would like to annoy you a little bit as well!
In any case, there was snow everywhere. You people wouldn’t be able to do anything!]
While you wait until spring comes… Would I not be able to create a new situation?
Sending tigers back to the forest? Chu Yang looked at the caravan and laughed internally. Not necessarily! In this group, there are no tigers! I will be able to leave them with an, especially important message…
At this point, Chu Yang had made a slight mistake in his calculations. Leaving such a message for Diwu Qing Rou would have actually been his err.
Until now, all of Golden Horse Riders Department’s operations remained extremely secretive. Furthermore, they generally took care of their own operations. Therefore, Chu Yang naturally assumed that all of these actions by Golden Horse Riders Department were led by these two King level leaders!
After killing these two King level leaders, everything else would be child’s play!
Moreover, one of them was now dead while the other was likely in a critical condition.
Therefore, Chu Yang made the assumption that there were no other key appointment holders in this caravan.
He did not know about the existence of Cheng Yun He. If he knew about Cheng Yun He, he would not have let a single soul leave. In the great battle between two countries, the role of a wise person like Cheng Yun He was even greater than that of a ruler!
While Kong Shang Xin’s action left Cheng Yun He unable to do anything but return in annoyance, it had also, in turn, saved Cheng Yun He’s life!
If he had waited until Cheng Yun He arrived before taking action, then Cheng Yun He would have revealed himself to the Hei Mo people and essentially revealing his presence to King of Hell Chu. In such a case, how would King of Hell Chu spare an individual who was by no means inferior to Tang Xin Shang?
Under a combination of circumstances and a battle of wits, Cheng Yun He was able to safely return.
The moment that Luo Ke Di had jumped in front of them attempting to rob them, Cheng Yun He was carefully watching his surroundings. Especially when Chu Yang and company also appeared at the same time as they watched they appeared to be from the same group. This was because all of them seemed to be of the same age group and thus he immediately figured out that they were his comrades!
They only had a few people. However, because of the way that they acted, he was able to deduce that none of them were weak as they showed no signs of fear despite facing such a huge convoy.
It would seem that some blood would have to be spilled for his group to leave here.
Of course, at that point, Cheng Yun He still did not think that these people were sent by King of Hell Chu. With the emperor’s death, how can an important person of Iron Cloud like King of Hell Chu appear here? He is probably so busy he could not even lift his head from his desk.
Therefore, Cheng Yun He was currently not the least bit worried or scared.
At this time, Luo Ke Di was a little embarrassed in his battle. While he was a descendant of a great clan, the gap between him and his opponent was too great. The opponent was a fourth grade Revered Martial Artist, and he was only a sixth grade Martial Great Master. It was a difference of at least seven or eight grades; the fact that he was able to hang on until now was already praiseworthy.
During his fight, he was entirely dependent on his agile and precise movements in order to compensate for the gap in cultivation levels. He continually used his nimble techniques and movements in order to avoid being hit by his opponent’s ferocious attacks.
If he had a heavenly weapon, the situation would have been different. However, his sword was only an ordinary one, and Ji Mo had gotten it chopped by Mo Qing Wu…
Second young master Luo started to feel a little nervous now.
He went from great excitement to nervousness in an extremely short time span. Luo Ke Di started to feel more and more helpless.
The pressure from his opponent gradually grew greater. Luo Ke Di moved in confusion when he suddenly made a desperate move and pulled out his belt!
Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh… His belt swung like a peacock’s feather. As it turned out, his belt was actually a specialized weapon!
“Wow! Luo Ke Di is using his secret weapon!” Ji Mo exclaimed. He shouted as if he had just discovered a new continent, “So it’s really a whip! Ah, a red one at that…”
“Whoa! I can’t believe Luo Ke Di’s whip is red…” Rui Bu Tong exclaimed. He then wondered aloud, “Then what is the color of his other whip?”
“Whoa! So Luo Ke Di has two whips…” Dong Wu Shang cried out, “I wonder if he would have to use both.”
“If he used both… he would have won already…” Chu Yang could not help himself, “His thick skin would have been sufficient to block any sort of attacks.”
“Whoa… Hahahaha…” The five people held their stomachs and laughed loudly. Even the usual emotionless and cold Gu Du Xing laughed until his eyes almost teared.
Luo Ke Di was locked in such a fierce battle that his orifices practically started to steam!
Seeing Gu Du Xing and the rest arrive, Luo Ke Di had hoped that they would quickly come over and help him. He never thought that not only his comrades not help, they also stayed far away and joyfully made fun of him as if they were watching a circus show.
