Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 244 Sharpening Blades For The Center Of The Continent!
“It isn’t difficult to defeat Mo Tian Yun if that is what you want.” Gu Du Xing then paused for a moment before continuing, “However, if your intention is to kill Mo Tian Yun, I am afraid that even with the strength of the six of us, such a mission is impossible to complete!”
“I agree.” Dong Wu Shang said as he nodded solemnly.
“Mo Tian Yun is really that powerful?” Chu Yang said as his eyes flashed.
“He really is powerful!” Gu Du Xing responded and added, “Within the past year, all of Mo clan’s external matters have been placed under Mo Tian Yun’s control. Moreover, the power of the Mo clan has risen and expanded in every aspect within the past year!”
“All of this is due to the effort of Mo Tian Yun.” Gu Du Xing said as he sighed sadly, “Both Mo Tian Yun and Mo Tian Ji are known as an extremely resourceful pair in the Middle Three Heavens. Moreover, out of the two Mo brother,s Mo Tian Yun is the tactician while Mo Tian Ji contributes through his intellect. However, Mo Tian Yun is so devious that even if you take every possible precaution, you might still end up falling into his trap.
“Yes, given Mo Tian Yun’s tactics, if he held all of the power of the Mo clan, he would become a great threat to all of their surrounding clans! Therefore, he is the target of many different groups of people. However, despite this, Mo Tian Yun is alive and well!” Dong Wu Shang stated.
“Everyone is aware of the power struggle between both of the Mo brothers in the Middle Three Heavens. While Mo Tian Ji’s strength could put us in our place, Mo Tian Yun has been suppressing Mo Tian Ji successfully for the past couple of years. Moreover, even though Mo Tian Ji’s situation has improved, he is still under the thumb of Mo Tian Yun. While Mo Tian Yun is only a few years older than Mo Tian Ji, he has proved that his intellect is not inferior to that of Mo Tian Ji’s!”
“Not only that but Mo Tian Yun is also a petty, suspicious, and vengeful person. He constantly utilises unscrupulous tactics to gain victory over his enemies. Against such an individual, unless you are absolutely sure of victory, it would be better not to pick a fight with him in the first place!” Luo Ke Di sighed, “Otherwise, trouble would be widespread.”
Out of the four of them in the discussion, Gu Du Xing’s Gu clan was an ally of the Mo clan, Ji Mo was Mo Tian Yun’s cousin, and Luo Ke Di’s clan was an enemy of the Mo clan. It was natural that all three of them knew about Mo Tian Yun.
After they heard what Chu Yang intended on doing, all of them firmly opposed.
“Could it be that… Mo Tian Yun is untouchable?” The cold in Chu Yang’s gaze grew stronger as he thought more about it.
“He is far too dangerous as an enemy!” Gu Du Xing said, “Moreover, he is an incredibly cautious individual and values his life beyond anything else! That is the reason why I said that it more possible for you to be able to defeat him rather than to kill him. I feel that killing him in the Lower Three Heavens is an impossible task!”
“Big brother needs to think this over!” The five said in one voice.
Chu Yang slowly nodded and said, “I will reconsider.”
“However, if big brother does insist, I will choose to help!” Gu Du Xing said casually.
“I will definitely help!” Luo Ke Di laughed.
Dong Wu Shang smiled, “I would also like to kill Mo Tian Yun.”
Rui Bu Tong coughed dryly, “Since all of you all going to help… If I don’t, you will probably beat me to death…”
Ji Mo smiled and said, “Of all the cousins, I dislike Mo Tian Yun most. However, since I am unable to take part in this, I will avoid it.”
The five of them understood the reason behind Ji Mo’s choice. If Ji Mo had excitedly asked to help, he would be considered to be a heartless individual. No matter how devious Mo Tian Yun was, he was still related to Ji Mo by blood!
“If I need help from you guys, I will not hesitate to ask.” Chu Yang said in a low voice. As he looked at the convictions of his brothers, Chu Yang was touched.
However, he had to think of it more carefully as to how to deal with Mo Tian Yun.
After all, it was a rarity to meet someone who was capable of suppressing Mo Tian Ji for as long as he did. It should be noted that even in the previous life, Mo Tian Ji still wasn’t able to hold all of the clan’s power at the time of the death of Mo Qing Wu!
It wasn’t until several years later that this battle for power between the two ceased as Mo Tian Yun decided not to continue to fight for power.
Thus, when dealing with Mo Tian Yun, regardless of how much hatred that he had… Chu Yang should definitely not underestimate his enemy! Moreover, just as Gu Du Xing and company had mentioned, Chu Yang had no intentions of doing just that.
Nonetheless, he still aimed to kill him!
Several days later, Chu Yang finally announced that they could be on their way!
In front of Dong Wu Shang’s longing gaze, Chu Yang took out a saber!
The moment the saber left its sheath, the entire room, even Ji Mo, Gu Du Xing and the others, could not help but hold their breath.
What sort of saber was this?
If there was such a thing as royalty among sabers, there was no doubt that this saber was it!
Words couldn’t begin to describe the mighty aura of this saber!
Dong Wu Shang’s two hands trembled and his eyes started to moisten. He gently stroked the saber as if it was the lover of his dream.
“My saber!” Dong Wu Shang’s voice was slightly choked. He suddenly spoke in a different tone as if he was taking an oath, “From this day forth, this saber will be called No Injuries! Under this saber, there will be no injuries, only deaths!”
Dong Wu Shang had decided on this name for his saber!
With a single hand, he raised this five hundred and seventy-pound saber up into the air. His eyes emitted a fanatical glow. At this moment, his entire face seemed to shine!
“Thank you, big brother! I, Dong Wu Shang, will never fail this saber! I will never leave my No Injuries!” Dong Wu Shang stabbed his saber downward and kneeled in front of Chu Yang before he was able to be stopped from doing so. He banged his head on the ground three times before standing up. Suddenly, he looked up into the sky and yelled out, “Sabers make kings; how can I, Dong Wu Shang, not be one?”
As he yelled, a bone-chilling aura from the saber suddenly surged forth!
Gu Du Xing’s eyes narrowed. The moment Dong Wu Shang received this saber, a mysterious force inside his body seemed to awaken. Dong Wu Shang was overflowing with pride!
Both he and the saber stood side by side and looked as though they were two sabers!
Two unrivaled sabers!
“At that moment, Wu Shang had opened the path of a sabersman!” Chu Yang’s gaze rested on Dong Wu Shang. After a long time, he smiled happily.
There was a look of admiration written all over Gu Du Xing’s face. The path of a sabersman was akin to that of a swordsman!
Although they were similar, their concepts were worlds apart. It was that single different word that was filled with hidden meaning which caused people to think.
No matter where a guest would be considered nobler than an ordinary person.
Therefore, being sabersmen and swordsmen, in the eyes of saber wielders and sword wielders was a kind of honor!
While Gu Du Xing was obsessed with the way of the sword, he was still not considered a swordsman! Although Dong Wu Shang was weaker than him, he was now a sabersman. This was essentially a step towards the way of the saber.
“You don’t have to be envious. The path of a swordsman will open up to you soon enough.” Chu Yang smiled, “The Revered Berserker Sword Technique is keeping the path of a swordsman from opening up to you. All you need to is to break through the Revered Sword Artist and stop practicing the Revered Berserker Sword Technique. A short time after that, you will become a swordsman!”
“I will break through in the shortest possible time period!” Gu Du Xing’s eyes flashed coldly. He gritted his teeth and said, “No matter what the price is!”
Chu Yang nodded his head and said, “This trip to Great Zhao is not just for work but also to train!” He then he tossed out five blades, “On this journey, you should not use your own weapons. These are your backups.”
The five were surprised.
“As for this saber and this sword.” Chu Yang pulled out a saber and a sword and said, “They are heavenly weapons. However, these two heavenly weapons are prepared for Jiang Hu of Great Zhao! I want this saber and this sword to create a reign of terror all over Great Zhao. After terror is struck among the people, I want all of the vengeance and attention to be directed towards the Continent Center Citadel!”
The five of them shuddered.
They all had enough experience to know how powerful this move could be. If word got out, the people of Jiang Hu would likely fill the Great Zhao’s Continent Center Citadel in a blink of an eye…
“Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong, both of you will go first. You will be the vanguard when we bring this saber to Great Zhao. While on your way, fight wherever and kill whenever you are able to. In short, create as large a commotion as possible. After arriving at the Continent Center Citadel, toss this saber at the most chaotic moment.”
Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong looked at each other and nodded. Their eyes were filled with fanaticism. The both of them were the most audacious. Chu Yang had made the strengths of his people by choosing these two as the vanguard.
“Dong Wu Shang and Luo Ke Di, you two will be part of the second wave. Use this sword for the same task as Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong.” Chu Yang said casually.
Dong Wu Shang nodded solemnly, and Luo Ke Di’s face immediately became twisted.
Luo Ke Di loved to talk and laugh loudly. Therefore, when he was tasked with traveling thousands of miles with an introvert like Dong Wu Shang, he would probably be bored to death…
Chu Yang had chosen complementary characters.
Luo Ke Di was lively and liked to cause trouble. However, he was also arrogant. Rui Bu Tong would not have been able to control him. If Luo Ke Di and Ji Mo went together… Chu Yang was certain that these two guys would probably not even reach Continent Center Citadel…
With the exception of Gu Du Xing, Dong Wu Shang was the only one that could securely control Luo Ke Di…
“I will travel with Gu Du Xing.” Chu Yang did not bother to look at Luo Ke Di’s grumpy expression, “We are the third group; we will travel empty-handed.”
“Once you arrive, you do not need to wait for us. All you need to do is to cause chaos. Once you have managed to cause a commotion, you can return back to your clans.” Chu Yang added solemnly.
“Then, what will be done with Mo Tian Yun?” Dong Wu Shang suddenly looked up.
“I don’t want to touch him yet.” Chu Yang said casually, “When it is time, I will let everyone know.” His eyes flashed with a strange emotion.
Dong Wu Shang nodded slowly.
“After returning to your clan, please go to the Mo clan and see Xiao Wu.” Chu Yang took a deep breath and said, “Her life in the clan is probably not very good. If you are able to get her out, please do everything in your power to do so. Ji Mo, you shall be tasked with this.”
Ji Mo patted his chest, “Don’t worry, big brother. I will definitely go!”
Chu Yang nodded and felt a little reassured, “On another note… the next time we see each other, should my cultivation level surpasses anyone here… Haha, big brother won’t be polite!”
Ji Mo and Luo Ke Di shouted in terror, “Big brother…”
This is unreasonable. Your cultivation level rises so quickly! How can be we be sure that you won’t surpass us?
“It’s decided! While we are apart, your most important task is to enhance all aspects of your abilities. Don’t forget you are people of Heavenly Armament Pavilion!” Chu Yang held a profound gaze as he said slowly, “I long for the day I will traverse Upper Three Heavens with all of you!”
“As for Lower Three Heavens business, Gu Du Xing and I will take care of it for now.” Chu Yang said matter-of-factly, “We shall start tomorrow morning! Do everything as planned!”
