Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 227 Three Questions To Move The Leader!
The moment Chu Yang mouthed these words, Miss Xiao Lu appeared to be slightly taken aback. She did not speak for a while.
Immediately, a big commotion had erupted from the people that were seated below!
“What hole did this country bumpkin crawl out from? Such beautiful zither music, yet he dared to say that it is lacking and incomplete?” A young man dressed in white laughed mockingly and continued, “Do you even understand anything?”
“Yes! Be it the artistic creation or the length of this melody, it is definitely a complete melody!” Lian Fan Lei sneered as he looked at the ‘stupid country bumpkin’. He continued with great eloquence, “Brother Chu, you probably have never heard such a beautiful melody before, am I right? What a country bumpkin. Funeral music is probably the only eternal masterpiece to you, right?”
“Hahaha…” Immediately after saying this, a group of people burst out in laughter.
“This guy is truly a frog at the bottom of a well. How many masterpieces could he have heard before?” The group had become louder, with their laughter completely unrestrained.
Cheng! The zither rang out suddenly. Once again, the entire great hall had become silent. The zither sounded fierce and determined! Even the music illiterates could tell that Miss Xiao Lu was furious!
This country bumpkin was extremely disrespectful and had angered the beauty!
Everyone was feeling satisfied as they could see that someone was in trouble.
“This melody…” While everyone was eagerly waiting for her to finish her sentence, Miss Xiao Lu opened her mouth slowly, “… is indeed incomplete! This is because I had come to this melody during a dream. It was surreal, yet faint. Someone had told me that this was from my past life…”
“Upon waking up, I wrote this melody at once. However, I realized that I could not go any further after getting to the last part because I was abruptly awoken from the dream. Hence, this melody is only half a melody! I have been feeling vexed over this for a long period of time… But… What I’m curious to know is how Young Master Chu was able to discern this?”
Indeed, this melody was incomplete! It was only half a melody!
These words of hers were like thunder to the ears of those young masters in the great hall. Instantly, they became dizzy and astonished, turning to look at each other in shock!
Never could they imagine that Miss Xiao Lu would actually agree with the judgment of that country bumpkin!
Besides, they were just mocking and laughing at him prior to what Miss Xiao Lu had just said. This was virtually as good as being slapped on their faces!
This was especially the case for Lian Fan Lei. He was a scholar and was even proficient in music. At this very moment, his face was burning up as he felt extremely humiliated.
“How could I discern this… Haha, I just did!” Chu Yang smiled softly.
Miss Xiao Lu pondered for a moment and said, “If that’s the case, then we are done with the first question. Brother Chu, please proceed with the second question.”
“The second question has to do with how the melody is incomplete as well!” Chu Yang expressed confidently.
The moment he said these words, the entire great hall became edgy. Everyone who had heard this melody felt that it was perfect beyond words! However, this guy has repeatedly claimed that this melody was incomplete… Could he have some mental issues?
Nonetheless, after being slapped real hard on their faces just moments ago, no one dared to voice their doubts for fear of being humiliated once more. They simply waited for him to continue with what he had to say.
“Oh? Please clarify yourself.” Miss Xiao Lu’s tone was clearly humble. This was not out of pretence, but instead, it was because she was sincerely keen to learn. Everyone could tell that this was the case.
“Umm, it has always been the case for good music to be designed to display joy without being crude and to display sadness without any injury. However, no matter how difficult a person’s life is, there will always be joy and sorrow, ups and downs!”
Chu Yang continued casually, “A person must have been through happiness and joy, no matter how lowly or difficult a person’s life is. This is true, even if that moment lasted only for a very short span of time! Besides, no matter how powerful a noble person is, he must have been through difficulties in his life! There is no exception to all of these!”
From behind the curtain, Miss Xiao Lu nodded her head gently as she contemplated for a moment.
“Your melody was captivating and engaging! However, it only demonstrated the emotion of sadness. Sadness without injuries… This was clearly achieved. But… If this is a reincarnation melody, there must be elements of happiness too! Your melody has missed out on this! Without this element, it does not carry the true meaning of reincarnation!”
Chu Yang continued softly, “In my humble opinion, changes should be made to this melody! What does Miss Xiao Lu think?”
“Yes.” This time, Miss Xiao Lu did not hesitate at all. She answered him directly as she praised, “Young Master Chu’s understanding of music is eye-opening to Xiao Lu! Would you mind staying to discuss with Xiao Lu on how to improve this melody?”
The moment these words of hers left her mouth, a look of jealousy flashed from deep within Lian Fan Lei’s eyes!
Staying to discuss how to improve this melody… How could such improvements be achieved within a day or two? If they were to continue discussing… the two of them will discuss right in bed… Wouldn’t they be putting horns on me?
Ah, this punk has barely started on music and he is already planning to put horns on me…
“Let’s put aside that discussion for now. I wish to address the third issue.” Chu Yang replied casually.
“Young Master Chu, please speak!” Miss Xiao Lu’s tone had become more respectful.
Just by hearing the two issues that he had to raise up, she was already impressed with this young master!
Such an astute observation was definitely out of the ordinary!
“It has been said that the zither music comes from the hand, which is connected to the mind. In the mind… there is the soul.” Chu Yang continued, “Miss Xiao Lu is completely dedicated to playing zither music and is exceptionally skilled. When it comes to zithers, you are absolutely the best at what you do! You are at the peak of your field and there is surely no one that’s better than you at it!”
“But… It is missing a soul, right?” Miss Xiao Lu sighed softly.
“Yes!” Chu Yang exclaimed in agreement.
After a long period of silence, the sound of the zither was heard from behind the curtain. It was as if Miss Xiao Lu’s mind had wandered off and her fingers had touched the zither on accident…
“Young Master Chu, please come in for a cup of tea. Xiao Lu wishes to speak to you alone!”
After pondering for a long period of time, Miss Xiao Lu requested in earnest.
“Yes!” A pretty maid next to her replied.
Chu Yang stood up and said casually, “Guys, wait for me here. In any case, you won’t be too lonely.” He then glanced at the group of angry young masters and smiled.
This was clearly a contemptuous smile.
In the entire Iron Cloud Citadel, even Tie Bu Tian could only be angry at King of Hell Chu, let alone these little young masters. Chu Yang did not bat an eye towards them. If it were not for the fact that they could be of use to time in the near future, Chu Yang would not even have bothered to spare them a look.
As for Lian Fan Lei… Lian Fan Lei was just a fart! No, in Chu Yang eyes, he was less than a fart. A fart would at least have some sort of smell… This guy could only have a slight smell if he was dead…
“Rest assured, I will restrain myself.”
Gu Du Xing smiled coldly and said, “I will not ruin your plans.” He knew that if Chu Yang had said such a thing so deliberately, there was bound to be a hidden agenda. He discovered that no matter what he did, Chu Yang and he were related to one another and were part of a greater picture!
Ever since he had met Chu Yang, he never once saw Chu Yang do anything carelessly! Each action of his had a purpose! Needless to say, Gu Du Xing would not dare to ever carelessly ruin Chu Yang’s plans.
Therefore, even if the two idiot youths, Luo Ke Di and Ji Mo, were present, Gu Du Xing would not fail to keep Chu Yang assured!
“That’s good!” Slowly, Chu Yang walked behind the young lady in white. He followed her at an unhurried pace.
From a distance, he could hear Luo Ke Di speaking in excitement as if he was yelling from behind, “Hey, hey, now that the music is done… There are so many beautiful ladies, why don’t everyone strip while we sing…”
Chu Yang staggered for a moment and nearly fell to the ground.
Subsequently, there were replies that scolded him.
“You are a pig!”
These scolding words came out of Gu Du Xing, Ji Mo, and Rui Bu Tong’s mouths. Immediately after these words were said, there were a few loud bangs before Luo Ke Di could be heard crying out pitifully. Eventually, Ji Mo said caringly, “Okay, beautiful sisters, there’s no need for you to be angry anymore. I’ve helped you teach him a good lesson. Haha, this lecherous bastard is absolutely intolerable! Rest assured that I will beat him again if he dares to speak again. Oh, beautiful ladies, no matter what happens, I will be your protector. Here, here, each of you come and give me a kiss, here, here…”
As he imagined the look of Ji Mo’s mouth, Chu Yang quickly increased his speed. Instantly, he walked past the corner so that he could no longer hear anything else. It was at this moment that he finally raised his arm to wipe off the sweat from his forehead.
Big Brother Chu had truly regretted bringing these two bastards out. Security was not a concern… but these two had really caused him to lose face…
“Young Master Chu, please…” Upon arriving at a decorous area, the young lady bowed down and said, “Miss Xiao Lu is waiting inside.”
Chu Yang nodded and casually took note of the entire space. He noticed that this area was at the top of three floors; there were buildings surrounding in from all four directions. It was well protected from all four sides, leaving behind no dead corners!
This was a most brilliant secure layout!
“Truly remarkable!” Chu Yang knocked on the door.
“Young Master Chu, please come in!” A soft voice came from inside the room.
“Thank you!” Chu Yang pushed the door open and placed one foot in. He paused for a moment before he put his other foot in as well. Now that his entire body was in the room, he stood at the door politely and waited in silence.
Just as he stepped in, Chu Yang could clearly sense an aggressive aura locking in on him without the least bit of restraint. This aura would have been able to kill him with just one blow even if the emperor and a million guards were there!
This aura did not seem to care about any consequences at all!
Feeling such an aura reminded Chu Yang of Gu Du Xing in his previous life! In his previous life, during the only time that he ever saw Gu Du Xing, he had the same fierce, murderous aura that this lone swordsman, unlike anything that Chu Yang had encountered before!
At that time, Gu Du Xing was a King level master! He was even at the peak of the ninth grade!
A King level; a lone swordsman!
It was not long after that encounter that there was news that Gu Du Xing had broken through the Emperor level!
Who was this person? Why did he have such a powerful aura?
At this very moment, Chu Yang thought of the strange encounter that Diwu Qing Rou’s Golden Horse Riders Department had at the House of Exceptional Beauties in his previous life! Everything had become crystal clear. Such a powerful person was present!
