Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 223 The Mysterious Person In Blue
Chu Yang had escaped awkwardly.
Ji Mo and the rest followed closely behind him.
“I have to say, Big Brother. This Miss Wu is quite pretty!” Luo Ke Di continued his praise, “This young master is well-versed with countless of women, but even in Middle Three Heavens, there are not many out there who are better than her! She’s a top beauty…”
Chu Yang’s face darkened as he continued to push forward.
“Big Brother, I can tell that this Miss Wu must have some sort of feelings towards you. I can’t believe that you’ve chosen to play around instead…” Ji Mo said sneakily, “The way I see it, there must surely be some sort of affair between the two of you…”
“What affair?” Chu Yang retorted angrily. He glared at Ji Mo, causing him to shrink back in fear.
“In fact, this Miss Wu is really decent.” Gu Du Xing said casually as he followed behind him, “She really does like you. All of us are able to tell that. You… If you don’t mind, you should reconsider this.”
Chu Yang sighed heavily. His impression of Wu Qian Qian had just changed. Even she did not know of this. But… what kind of person was Chu Yang? How could he not have seen that she had feelings for him?
In this aspect, he continued to remain cold. This was something that he could not comply with, but he definitely could not reject this thought either!
This was because Wu Qian Qian had never made her stance this clear while maintaining a resolved attitude. She had been liking him in the quiet without saying anything blatantly! Hence, Chu Yang only had a few choices.
I never once said that I like you. I never once showed any intentions up to this point. Would you even reject my silent intentions?
Thus, Chu Yang decided to feign ignorance regarding this.
Upon hearing Gu Du Xing’s words, Chu Yang sighed deeply and said, “How could I possibly not know? It’s just… I currently don’t have the mind to think about love…”
“Why don’t you?” Once again, Ji Mo jumped into the conversation, “We can talk about love, discuss official business, and practice martial arts at the same time… That would be extremely enjoyable.”
“Get lost!” Chu Yang shouted angrily, “One more word out of your mouth, and I will ask for the sword back!”
Ji Mo shrunk back once again and remained silent in obedience. They had lived together for so long and had developed some thick skin. At this point, only saying that could threaten him. If Chu Yang were to say: “One more word out of your mouth, and I will punch you!” He would probably respond with, “Come on! Come on! I have been itching to fight for the past few days…”
“You have someone in your heart already?” Gu Du Xing asked, concerned. This was the only reason why Chu Yang would not chase after this alluring beauty.
“Mm.” Chu Yang nodded his head.
“Who is it?” Immediately, Gu Du Xing’s eyes widened, “Have I met her yet?”
“I’m certain that you have already met her before!” Chu Yang smiled in a mysterious manner.
“I have?” Gu Du Xing was now truly stunned. He began to think hard about all the beauties that he had met… However, after thinking over and over again, he only became even more puzzled. He could not figure out who it was.
The problem was that everyone was essentially not a beauty in the eyes of Gu Du Xing. To him, they were just women! Besides, all women were the same.
“You have someone in your heart already?” Luo Ke Di snorted and suggested excitedly, “Men with three wives and four concubines are commonplace. So what if you already have a lover? Being solely taken by one person could potentially affect your little brother’s firmness…”
“Get lost!” Gu Du Xing bellowed. He gave a hard kick, sending Luo Ke Di flying off like a cloud.
“I can’t figure out who she might be.” Gu Du Xing frowned while still maintaining his kicking stance.
“Mm, keep thinking about it then.” Chu Yang smiled softly. He was currently not in the mood to speak of romance. Mo Qing Wu had been weighing down his heart for two lifetimes. If he were to develop feelings for Wu Qian Qian at this juncture…
Then… his conviction after being reborn would be as worthless as bubbles in the sea!
“How far away are we from that House of Exceptional Beauties…?” Luo Ke Di ran after them with snow all over his body as he changed the topic.
“It’s not too far. Given our speed, this trip will take less than an hour.” Chu Yang said cautiously, “There’s something that I ought to warn all of you first. The background of the House of Exceptional Beauties is extremely mysterious. It’s a force to be reckoned with! Don’t just assume that since you guys are the young masters of the great clans in Middle Three Heavens, you have the right to dismiss them! In my opinion, the internal House of Exceptional Beauties is no less than any of your clans!”
“Oh?” Gu Du Xing, Ji Mo, Luo Ke Di, and Rui Bu Tong displayed a look of interest as they looked at each other and smiled in curiosity.
“F*ck!” Luo Ke Di was startled, “This is the House of Exceptional Beauties? Grandmother! What magnificence!”
It was not just him, but even Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing were somewhat astounded!
Snow had fallen for four days endlessly and barely melted. All of Iron Cloud Citadel, including the royal palace, was covered in deep snow. Yet, within a hundred feet radius of this House of Exceptional Beauties, there was unexpectedly not the slightest bit of snow!
Everything was clean! Even the ground was extremely dry. Even the roof was surprisingly clean.
In the local area, the only things that had snow were the little trees that were not afraid of the cold growing in the courtyard. Snow remained hanging on the branches and further contrasted the green color of the leaves, creating a dreamy atmosphere. It was almost like that of a magical realm…
Two sets of lanterns were hanging from the roof.
The neighbors in the vicinity were completely covered in snow; this was the only place in the area that was dry and clean. Under such a stark contrast, this place appeared even more mysterious. It was as if it did not belong to the mortal realm at all.
Young masters came and left endlessly; there was even a merchant with a giant belly who walked in.
“This place is really lively.” Luo Ke Di’s two eyes lit up as he tried his best to take in the fragrance of the makeup that was carried towards them by the cold wind. He said in a dreamy voice, “Oh my god! It’s as warm as spring… Just by being here, I feel like I’m a fish that has just found water…”
“Come on, Let’s go.” Chu Yang recovered from the initial shock at once.
Just as they were about to step in, he sensed that something was out of the ordinary. He could not help but stiffen his body as he listened carefully. However, he did not discover anything. Maintaining a thoughtful look in his eyes, he turned back and walked in with Gu Du Xing and the rest.
A few hundred feet behind them, by the trunk of a large pine tree, a person in blue had appeared, without making any sound. With a look of great dissatisfaction, he muttered, “This punk… I can’t believe that he’s taking his friends to a brothel to play with prostitutes…”
Subsequently, he frowned and murmured, “Motherf*cker, it was a lot of work finding him. But… how do I verify that it is actually him? He still doesn’t appear to have the Pure Purple Jade Essence on him. Could it be that I’m mistaken once again…?”
As he thought about the last time he reported back, he remembered how his fame had taken a big hit. He had told the master of the clan that he did not find any positive proof, causing him to be kicked out.
“No jade essence? Why bother reporting back?” Previously, the master whacked the back of the man with his walking stick, “Damn you! You said you could find it! You’re supposed to find someone, yet you have no one to show for it! More than a hundred times before, your elder brother and sister-in-law hastily ran over just to have your sister-in-law go back in tears… You… Can you even do anything with certainty?”
“Ah, sir, I suspect… I believe that it’s certain for sure this time…”
“You suspect? You suspect, your grandmother!” The master of the clan bellowed, “One hundred and thirty-five times; you were certain that you were right each time!”
“I’m certain this time around… His looks are simply too alike… Really, that demeanor, that face…”
“One hundred and thirty-five times before; didn’t you say the exact same thing?!”
“It’s definitely right this time…”
“Get out! You’re still not leaving… Fine, fine!”
As expected, that walking stick slammed down on the ground again. The person in blue had no choice but to run away awkwardly.
He could hear the master of the clan’s roar, “Each time you return without finding him, I will toss you into the latrine!”
This person in blue’s face turned as ugly as a bitter gourd at the thought of this.
After reporting this, he headed directly towards Iron Cloud Citadel. He then searched for a few days and had practically turned over all of Iron Cloud Citadel. It was not until this morning that he accidentally chanced upon Chu Yang as he exited Heavenly Armament Pavilion.
Even with his immense speed and skill, he was still exhausted by then.
“I’m still unable to sense the Pure Purple Jade Essence. Could it be that he has hidden the piece that I’ve given him as well?” How could the person in blue possibly lose hope now? He had sworn that the youth he found this time looked exactly like his elder brother! In comparison to the hundred and thirty-five people before him, he looked much more alike!
Furthermore, his demeanor was also extremely similar this time! Besides, his mouth looked very much like his sister-in-law’s.
However, the clan was extremely busy at this moment. He could not go to see his elder brother or sister-in-law. Instead, he ran right towards the master of the clan… This old man’s temper… was truly…
“Ah… a brothel… I truly hate such places…” The person in blue sighed heavily and flew in softly.
The best course of action at this moment was to follow this punk and verify his identity slowly… Of course, it would be best if I could find that piece of jade!
“Hey, hey, it’s been a while since you young masters have come here. Young masters, welcome… Girls, please come and greet our honored guests…”
The moment Chu Yang and the rest entered the door, they were immediately greeted by an obese woman of approximately 30 to 40 years of age. She had a face that was caked with makeup and appeared cheerful.
“Oh.” Ji Mo made a retching noise and said angrily, “Is this not the House of Exceptional Beauties? Can this woman also be called an exceptional beauty?”
“This is the madam, you fool!” Gu Du Xing looked at Ji Mo in great surprise. For a self-proclaimed expert with beauties, this reaction of him was indeed a shocker.
Ji Mo’s face flushed red as he said forcefully, “I thought that the madam would be an exceptional beauty too…”
“Get out of here! How can an exceptional beauty be a madam?” Luo Ke Di stuck up his nose and dismissed Ji Mo.
The three of them continued to speak, without minding anyone around them. The madam’s face shifted between red and white as she listened to the conversation. She was feeling somewhat ashamed. Finally, five young ladies in white appeared and spoke in unison, “Welcome, five young masters…”
Subsequently, they moved forward to grab one young master by the arm. They led them inside, with their arms wrapped around the arms of the young masters, displaying warm smiles on their faces.
The moment these five young ladies had appeared, even Chu Yang could not help but let out a soft cry…
Of course, these five young ladies were not at the level of exceptional beauties, but they were most certainly extremely graceful. In terms of figure or beauty, they were all above average. The makeup on their faces was very light. Their eyes were bright. At first glance, they did not look one bit like courtesans!
Furthermore, each one of them had a shyness on their faces and looked like the typical girl next door. Just by looking at these young ladies, they could tell that the House of Exceptional Beauties was indeed not an ordinary place!
