Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 243 Chu Yang's Killing Intent!
“You’re asking about the Mo clan?” Dong Wu Shang said after blinking for a couple of times in shock, “The Mo clan and the Dong clan are extremely far apart and because of the distance between which both clans are situated, I don’t know what the situation is. However, I do know that after Mo Tian Ji returned to the clan, he was immediately sent to the Cang Lan battlefront.”
“Huh?” Chu Yang frowned.
“I am not exactly clear about the details. However, when Mo Tian Ji, he did so with a great force. I also heard that he brought along with him a cavalry and robbed people like a crazed man during his journey. Moreover, he also intentionally took a detour, visiting every single place he could. He first visited the Ji clan and for some weird reason, he started arguing with the Ji clan. After which, he then headed south, fought with the Luo clan and destroyed a shop of theirs. Worst of all, he had burned down a saber workshop belonging to our Black Saber clan!”
“Everyone in the Middle Three Heavens is aware that the second young master of the Mo clan has gone mad…” Dong Wu Shang grunted and continued, “If it wasn’t because I was in a huge rush to return, I would have definitely chased him down and given him a thorough beating!”
Chu Yang’s brows moved closer and closer as he was in deep thought. All of a sudden, a cold gaze flashed from his eyes as he punched the table with an incredible force next to his bed. With a loud bam, the entire table shattered into small pieces. Chu Yang gritted his teeth and said, “Damn the Mo clan!”
Chu Yang understood Mo Tian Ji more than anyone else in this world!
If those things which were reported were true and done by a playboy young master from a clan in Middle Three Heavens, it wouldn’t have been strange. In fact, if a cold and calm person like Gu Du Xing lost his mind and di as Mo Tian Ji had done, it would not have been a shock. However, Mo Tian Ji would definitely never do such things!
Knowing Mo Tian Ji’s character, him doing such things was indicative of him losing his mind! However, something impossible was being done by someone who could have done it.
There has to be some deeper meaning hidden within his actions.
Chu Yang thought about why Mo Tian Ji had done what he did. Perhaps, after Mo Tian Ji returned, he was unable to leave or go back to the Lower Three Heavens. Therefore, he was only able to use these methods to convey a secret message to me.
While they had only met briefly for a night, Mo Tian Ji knew that in this world, the people that would lay their lives on the line for Mo Qing Wu were himself and Chu Yang.
Therefore, there had to be something which he had wanted Chu Yang to know.
Moreover, all of the clans that Mo Tian Ji had chosen to harass were the clans of the five people who were staying with Chu Yang!
Mo Tian Ji had taken such drastic measures and even placed himself in danger just to send Chu Yang a single message: Mo Qing Wu’s situation is currently bad!
Even though the Ji clan was related to them, Mo Tian Ji still caused trouble with them. This had meant that their relatives were also not to be trusted and that there was internal strife within the clan.
They had been enemies with the Luo clan for a long time. Therefore his fighting with the Luo clan could mean that the situation was extremely serious, egregious and perhaps even deadly.
Him making trouble with the Gu clan, a longtime ally, said there was betrayal between brothers!
The burning of the Black Saber clan’s workshop told Chu Yang that the saber had been taken away!
Consequently, all of this told Chu Yang that his opponent was incredibly powerful! Even Mo Tian Ji himself had to go to the Cang Lan battlefront. This warned Chu Yang of the danger and advised him to be cautious in planning before making a move!
Chu Yang ground his teeth and asked slowly, “The eldest young master of the Mo clan, is his name… Mo… Tian… Yun?”
“Yes!” Dong Wu Shang thought for a moment.
“Mo Tian Yun. According to tradition, if the Nine Tribulations Sword master appears, then the disciples of Middle Three Heavens are sent down for training… Has this Mo Tian Yun, gone down to Lower Three Heavens?” Chu Yang asked lightly.
“Yes!” Dong Wu Shang could feel the hair on the back of his neck standing on ends.
Chu Yang seemed normal when he spoke. However, for some sort of reason, Dong Wu Shang felt a killing intent so thick it felt like a solid wall.
Could it be that Chu Yang wants to kill Mo Tian Yun?
These two men never had any sort of confrontation… Moreover, not too long ago, Chu Yang had saved Mo Tian Yun’s sister, Mo Qing Wu. The Mo clan should be thanking him. If Chu Yang were to ever go to the Middle Three heavens, it would be likely that the Mo clan would become one of his trusted allies.
Why could Chu Yang want to kill a descendant of his future ally?
Moreover… this kind of killing intent is the type of mortal enemies!
“Call everyone in. There are some things I want to discuss.” Chu Yang said with a scowl.
Dong Wu Shang was startled and left to find the rest of the people.
Within moments, Gu Du Xing and company were gathered in Chu Yang’s room.
“Today is the first time the six of us brothers have officially sit down like this. It is also the first time we have had a discussion together.” Chu Yang did not bother with formalities and went straight to the point, “I want to talk about the next step.”
The five people simultaneous sat up straight. While big brother was young and his cultivation level was the weakest among the six, everyone knew that, given Chu Yang’s advancement speed, he would probably surpass them all within less than a year.
“It will soon be Ji Mo’s birthday, and Ji Mo would have to return home. In fact, I feel that all of you should go home. This place will be alright with just Gu Du Xing and me.” Chu Yang said slowly.
“Why?” Everyone seemed reluctant. It was not easy to find brothers they could trust and rely on with their lives. How could they part from each other so easily?
“Think about this. Compared to Mo Tian Ji, how are you guys?” Chu Yang shot a glance across everyone’s faces.
“He is better!” Gu Du Xing was honest. If others were better, he would just say so.
Dong Wu Shang slowly nodded.
“How about compared to Mo Tian Yun?”
“He is also better.”
“Well, how about compared to the Ao clan’s eldest young master, Ao Xie Yun?” Chu Yang slowly asked.
“He is also… better…”
There was a hint of shame on Gu Du Xing and Dong Wu Shang’s faces.
“The intelligence of anyone here is no less than any of them. However, when it comes to tactics or calculation or dealing with others… even cultivation level, you are all less than them. In truth, these people are a few years older than you, but the key reason is…” Chu Yang said solemnly, “You have too little experience!”
“In other words, you have not dealt with enough challenges! You have rarely dealt with setbacks!” Chu Yang’s gaze gradually brightened as he spoke, “Therefore, all of you have to make up for this shortcoming. That is the only way you can truly grow!”
At this point, Gu Du Xing, Dong Wu Shang, Ji Mo and company all nodded.
The words of Chu Yang touched on an extremely important issue.
“As much as I would want to stay in the same place with all of you, that is not possible. Therefore, I have no choice but to send you all away!” Chu Yang said, “If we continue to stay in the same place, there will be friends wherever something happens. Whether it be Mo Tian Ji or Mo Tian Yun, their strength and wisdom cannot be compared to all six of us combined. However, while our strength as one is great, our individual strengths will never grow.”
“When I speak of individual strength, I am referring to tactics and experience.” Chu Yang added, “Therefore, staying together for too long is a big disadvantage for all of you!”
“We must separate! Each of you must weather through storms and grow by his own effort.” Chu Yang concluded.
“This is not an issue. After returning, I will ask my big brother to give me a few responsibilities in the clan.” Dong Wu Shang nodded and said, “My big brother has actually since asked me about this many times, but I chose not to. This resulted in him beating me up many times… He also isn’t afraid that I would steal his clan leader position…”
Luo Ke Di rolled his eyes and lamented, “Looking at your saber-crazy personality, would you still want to steal the clan leader position…”
Dong Wu Shang glared back.
“There is no problem on my part.” Ji Mo sighed, “My eldest brother is the laziest. Other than beating me up, he doesn’t do anything… Both of us ignore clan matters. If I return and say a word, expressing my interest, my father would probably be overjoyed.”
“On my part, there is an issue…” Luo Ke Di frowned, “My eldest brother has a great desire for power. He would probably not give me any power when I come home…”
“So you must fight for it!” Everyone else spoke with one voice, “Deal with your eldest brother!”
Luo Ke Di shivered…
“When I get back, I will go robbing with my master.” Rui Bu Tong said frankly.
The other five almost fainted…
“Not just rob; you should also use Hypnotic Fragrance to steal and render people unconscious… Especially when it comes to the big clans.” Chu Yang instructed carefully, “It would be best to make them hunt you down; that way, you will advance very quickly!”
“At the same time, I will also die very quickly!” Rui Bu Tong rolled his eyes, but he was internally thinking: Could it be done?
“Ah, wait for a few days. When Dong Wu Shang’s saber is done, we will make our trek to Great Zhao!” Chu Yang said, “At that time, we complete a task in Great Zhao. When that is done, we will also part ways at Great Zhao!”
“So soon?” The five people said in unison.
“It isn’t soon at all. After this is done, Ji Mo would be home just in time.” Chu Yang said, “There is one more thing I would want to discuss with everyone today. It is about how we can put all of Great Zhao into chaos.”
The five looked at each other.
“If you want to make the Jiang Hu of Great Zhao filled with chaos, I have a way.” Ji Mo thought for a while before he said, “It will make them all of them fight with each other like mad dogs…”
“Mad dogs fighting?” Chu Yang seemed to have an inkling.
“Big brother’s sabers and swords. You could put out two and give them some background… and let them into Jiang Hu.” Ji Mo said, “Heavenly weapons are most coveted by the people of Jiang Hu. However, we need to discuss carefully how we can create a wide sensation.”
“That is an idea…” Chu Yang rubbed his chin and thought.
“It might be more difficult to deal with the royal court.” Ji Mo frowned.
“No worries, we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.” Chu Yang said definitively, “Let’s go first and figure it out later.”
“Iron Cloud is in the north and the weather is cold. Therefore all of the Middle Three Heavens clans are out training in Great Zhao because the weather there is the mildest. On this trip, we will meet with many disciples of the Middle Three Heavens out of training.” Chu Yang said gravely, “One of those people is the eldest young master of the Mo clan, Mo Tian Yun.”
Dong Wu Shang shivered internally; Chu Yang finally said it!
“Big brother wants to deal with Mo Tian Yun?” Gu Du Xing frowned.
“Not deal with him; I want to kill him!” Chu Yang said slowly, “I want to know, what the consequences would be if I am to keep Mo Tian Yun in Lower Three Heavens forever.”
At this moment, the five felt Chu Yang’s killing intent surging like a rising tide…
