Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 207 An Unexpected Powerful Force!
Both of the groups reluctantly bid each other farewell. Chu Yang and company sped away in the wind and snow. Within short moments, they had disappeared into the white landscape.
After he saw that Chu Yang’s group had left, Cheng Yun He took a few handfuls of snow and rubbed them thoroughly onto his hand. He then got into his carriage and gave his orders, sending the caravan on its way slowly moving in the direction of Great Zhao.
“Sir, why did you give him your calling card? These people clearly did not have any good intentions!” One of the Revered Martial Artists sitting opposite of him asked in puzzlement.
“How could I not know that they were harboring malicious intent? By just looking at them, I could tell that all of them were talented. Moreover, they are still extremely young and their mannerisms should that they weren’t ordinary at all! These are people definitely not from Bu Tian Pavilion. This is something that we can be certain of.” Cheng Yun He closed his eyes and said solemnly.
“That is true. While they might be rude, they looked as though they were accustomed to an easy life. Moreover, they were the arrogant type. King of Hell Chu’s Bu Tian Pavilion would likely not be able to recruit people such as them.” That Revered Martial Artist frowned and said, “In my humble opinion, these people looked like people who are descendants of powerful clans. Ordinary families would not be able to nurture talents like them…”
“Yes!” Cheng Yun He said, “No matter what their intentions were, three things are certain. Firstly, they did not intend to chase and kill all of us nor notify King of Hell Chu. This tells us about their position. Secondly, these people had some form of intent to visit Great Zhao. Thirdly, this is the most important point. He had unintentionally said one thing. And it was because of this that I gave his my jade calling card.”
“What is that?”
“‘We are challengers, where wouldn’t we go?’ It was this.” Cheng Yun He said casually, “Challengers… How many people in the world go around challenging people? How many of these clans?”
“Sir, you mean to say that… those people were descendants of the Middle Three Heavens clans?” The Revered Martial Artist’s eyes immediately widened.
“Yes!” Cheng Yun He said pensively, “When they were fighting, they were not too united nor harmonious. Although they did not have the same surnames, it is likely that they came from multiple clans… The first youth that appeared, they called him… Luo Ke Di? Is that right?”
“Yes, that was his name.”
“Hmm, and the person who was teasing him most was called Lonely? Or was it Ji Mo? Probably Ji Mo.” Cheng Yun He said, “The last guy who was asking about King level leader Yin said his surname is Gu!… This proves that must be from at least three great clans in Middle Three Heavens!”
“All we need to do is ask when we get back.” Cheng Yun He said leisurely, “For people like them, it is better to have them as friends than enemies. Moreover, if they ever come… Haha, even the Prime Minister would like to welcome them. However, if they were unclear about when they would come. Therefore I decided to give them that piece of jade. Once they go to Great Zhao, they would surely think of me. Moreover, when they think of me, it would be more likely that they will be able to find me with more ease than without the jade at all… Wouldn’t this be better than for them instead of having to search for a needle in a haystack?
“Yes! You are truly wise and have incredible foresight.” That Revered Martial Artist was in awe. A scholar was truly a scholar; his thinking was far more complex than ordinary people.
“Yes, being friends with people from such great clans would no doubt be of a great benefit. Moreover, if we were to become their enemies, the consequences would be far more disastrous.” Cheng Yun He said, “On the off chance that they come to Great Zhao… In your opinion, given their abilities, could they not stir up a lot of trouble?”
That Revered Martial Artist thought about the arrogant and domineering ways of those six people and could not help but smile; he said, “People like them, it would be odd if they don’t stir up trouble wherever they go…”
“Yes, and imagine what would happen if someone in Great Zhao provokes them…” Cheng Yun He stroked his beard and said, “There are many playboy punks in Great Zhao…”
The Revered Martial Artist’s countenance shifted as he said, “Mmm, yes there are many.”
“I have to take careful precautionary measures…” Cheng Yun He took a deep breath and said, “Regardless of whether it will be useful or not, I have at least laid down a foundation today.”
In the howling snow and wind, the caravan finally disappeared.
At this time, after going for some distance, Chu Yang turned around and looked at the vast landscape; he muttered, “Whether it will be useful or not, I have laid down a foundation today…”
Gu Du Xing asked, “What foundation?”
Chu Yang laughed and said, “The foundation to go to Great Zhao!”
His whip snapped and rang through the emptiness; he said, “Let us return to Heavenly Armament Pavilion!”
Gu Du Xing and company complied and rushed after him.
At that very moment, Chu Yang suddenly let out a loud scream and fell to the ground in pain. Gu Du Xing and the rest were startled. They immediately dismounted in haste and ran toward him in concern. They could only see that Chu Yang’s entire body was read and his head was steaming with heat. Despite the heavy snowfall, the moment that it came in contact with the heat which radiated from his body, it melted in an instant.
The heat continued to grow stronger…
Gu Du Xing and company were puzzled. In such icy weather, how could Chu Yang look like he was burning up?
Currently, Chu Yang was suffering from indescribable misery. Just then, a massive force rushed out from his dantian causing Chu Yang head to almost explode! The meridians in his entire body were being expanded to their limits…
The discomfort was unimaginable.
He barely managed to control himself to get into a meditative sitting position. He then ignored everything else and began to activate his martial energy in the same position in the middle of the wilderness. Chu Yang felt that if he was even a little slower in activating his martial energy, this massive force would have ripped him into tiny pieces.
Chu Yang felt very strange. F*! Where did such a powerful medicinal force come from? Didn’t I already absorb all of the earnings from the palace’s vault? How could there still be more?
However, at that point, he did not know that this was actually the result of the Nine Tribulations Sword’s thievery!
The two slices of Diwu Qing Rou’s Jade Spirit Ginseng had been placed in an exquisite jade box under Cheng Yun He’s shirt. Moreover, what the Nine Tribulations Sword needed the most was the power from such a rare treasure as such. Due to its sharp senses, it had discovered the presence of this treasure and took advantage of the opportunity when Chu Yang was in contact with Chen Yun He to steal them from him.
The Nine Tribulations Sword had done this without everyone noticing and within brief moments had absorbed all of the Jade Spirit Ginseng as it snuck back with satisfaction.
After it had taken in the essence for itself, the medicinal potency left over became the fortune of Nine Tribulations Sword’s master, Chu Yang!
However, this force was so massive… Chu Yang was barely able to withstand it!
However, this was nothing strange. A single slice of the Jade Spirit Ginseng was sufficient to restore the vitality of a dying King level master and restore thirty percent of his strength! What would then happen if he consumed two at a time?
How much was thirty percent strength of a King level master?
Although such a thing could not be calculated, compared to a seventh grade Martial Artist like Chu Yang, it must have been much greater… Getting hit with such a colossal medicinal force under such unexpected circumstances, it was fortunate that Chu Yang had not become completely overwhelmed by the shock…
Chu Yang continued to try and maintain consciousness while at the same time pushing this force through his meridians. However, he had the feeling that this force itself was still too large and his meridians were really far too narrow. Therefore resulting in the force being unable to pass through his meridians quickly enough. It was like a large volume of rushing water trying to squeeze through a small pipe with no way else to flow other than through…
The pressure that Chu Yang was currently experiencing was unimaginable!
Although his meridians were almost blocked, the medicinal force from his dantian continued to pour forth into them…
Gu Du Xing and the rest were anxiously watching Chu Yang. They looked at his suddenly reddened body and his meridians which were slowly bulging as if they were about to burst out in the snow.
The heat being emitted from his body grew more substantial by the second. Gradually, the layer of snow under him melted away. Even Ji Mo and company were sweating from the heat as they stood by his side…
Gu Du Xing took a deep breath. He placed his palm on Chu Yang’s back intending to activate his martial energy and lend Chu Yang a hand. He looked at Chu Yang’s situation and deduced that his meridians were being completely blocked. Therefore, he took the initiative to try and help clear them…
Not only did Gu Du Xing have exceptional visual observational skill, he also had accurate judgment. However, he thought that Chu Yang’s meridians were being blocked due to some other reason and not because there was too much energy that his body and meridians were unable to handle.
Therefore, at that point, what Chu Yang actually needed was to free that powerful force from his body and not to receive another force in order for him to regulate his energy flow. If there was an additional force, it would have been disastrous…
The moment Gu Du Xing placed his hand and activated his martial energy, there was a loud boom. His body shot outward as if he was a ball that was being pushed down a mountain by an unexpected flash flood…
He immediately flew out thirty feet into a pile of snow. The whole pile of snow started to sizzle as steam rose. Ji Mo and company were startled and hastily rushed over. Gu Du Xing wobbled out of the snow pile and shook his head. He said with a paled face, “This force is truly powerful.”
Gu Du Xing was currently an eighth grade Great level master and his cultivation level was much higher than Chu Yang’s. However, he had been overwhelmed by the energy within Chu Yang’s body. He had almost got injured while Chu Yang was still in an unconscious state…
This left Gu Du Xing stunned…
“How could this be?” Ji Mo was greatly agitated. Ever since he fought with that Revered Martial Master, he had felt something different with his body. However, he was unable to put it into words; in short, he was already anxious.
“I was pushed out…” Right after Gu Du Xing said this, the other four were petrified! Pushed out? An eight grade Martial Artist pushing out an eight grade Great level master? Was this a joke?
“It’s true!” Gu Du Xing saw the suspicious in the face of the four and said helplessly.
“F*!” Ji Mo and Luo Ke Di yelled out in unison and sat with their heads tilted as they looked at Chu Yang meditating. They kept shaking their heads and almost sprained their necks…
“Could it be that Big Brother was a wolf in sheep’s clothing? Has he actually been toying with us the entire time?” Luo Ke Di cried out, “I even picked on him recently… I am in big trouble, big trouble…”
“It’s not anything like that.” Gu Du Xing said, “I also can’t tell how he’s doing this; maybe it is accidental…”
Rui Bu Tong, Dong Wu Shang, Ji Mo and Luo Ke Di yelled out at the same time, “Oh god… give me the opportunity to experience something accidental like that…”
