Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 247 Tan Tan's Power!
Meng Chao Ran’s eyebrows furrowed as he frowned. He looked up all of a sudden with his eyes shooting daggers at his opponents. “So you are the people of the Golden Horse Rider’s Department.”
“Senior Meng really had great observation skills.” One of the people in white said in a cold voice and smiled, “It is a real pity that smart people don’t live for very long.”
“Haha, if it is your intention to kill me, then you should display a bit of sincerity.” Meng Chao Ran smiled faintly before continuing, “talking without any action is useless.” He then immediately clasped his hand behind his back and took a small step forward. “Wu Cheng Feng, Wu Cheng Yu. We only know the both of you. Do you plan on introducing us?”
The two individuals whom he had called by name were the two lanky people dressed in black from the Black Blood League. The both of them appeared to have similar characteristics as though there were blood-related brothers.
“Brother Meng, it wasn’t our intention to become your enemies and we certainly did not want to kill you. However, your disciple has really caused far too much trouble.” Wu Cheng Feng feigned a sign of helplessness as he stroked his beard.
“Brother Meng, there is really no need to buy time for reinforcements to come to your rescue. All nine peaks and the garden of Beyond the Heavens Sect are all under attack at this very moment!” Wu Cheng Yun said with a sinister smile, “However, Brother Meng will get some special treatment.”
The two brothers then looked at one another and smiled before smiling Wu Yun Liang and Meng Chao Ran. They wanted to see a anger or panic written all over their opponent’s faces. That would have made their mission far more enjoyable for them.
However, Wu Yun Liang’s face remained indifferent. Even his gaze did not change as he retained his composure. His eyes seem to be a smile like a spring breeze. It was as though he didn’t mind any of it at all.
“Could it be that you aren’t a single bit worried?” Wu Cheng Feng said in surprise.
“What is the use of worrying?” Wu Yun Liang said coolly. “Everyone has to eventually perish! Dying when is the question. Regardless of whether you worry, death will still catch up with you. With your intelligence, I am sure you understand what this sect master is saying?”
“You are courting your own death!” The two Wu brothers yelled in anger.
“You are definitely worthy of being such a key figure in Beyond the Heavens Sect. I shall introduce myself. I am Sun Jian. This is my younger brother, Sun Feng, fifth grade Saber Great Master of the Saintly Saber Pavilion.” The person who was dressed in red said as he pressed his hand against the handle of his saber and said in an arrogant voice.
“The both of you Sun brothers are truly masters.” Wu Yun Liang stretched the word Sun in a slightly strange tone.
The faces of Sun Jian and Sun Feng immediately turned into the same color of their outfits.
“As for these four Golden Horse Riders, no introduction is necessary.” Meng Chao Ran said casually, “You four are all Revered Martial Artist. You truly have given us credit.”
“Wrong.” A voice laughed softly, “Dealing with King of Hell Chu’s master, how can four Revered Martial Artists be enough? There should at least eight!” With this voice, another four people in white casually stepped forward: three male and one female.
Eight Revered Martial Artists; four Great level masters!
Meng Chao Ran and Wu Yun Liang’s eyes narrowed.
If it had been just the initial eight people, both of them were certain that they would be able to escape. However, the moment that the other four people appeared, they realized that two of them had powerful auras and were peak level Revered Martial Artists!
Between the two, Wu Yun Liang had the highest cultivation level. However, he as only an eighth grade Revered Martial Artist. Compared to his opponents, he was still a grade lower. How were they going to fight this battle?
“Little martial brother, how many years has it been since the last time we teamed up against the enemies?” He then let out a lofty laugh.
“Why do you ask? Perhaps eldest martial brother feels inspired today?” Meng Chao Ran smiled.
“How about the two of us brothers team up and fight today?” Wu Yun Liang stroked his beard and smiled, “Otherwise, it would be a waste of all this good wine!”
“Alright!” Meng Chao Ran chuckled, “Eldest brother is truly an alcoholic, how about we drink a cup after each time we kill one?”
The two martial brothers laughed freely and cheerfully.
It seemed that they were unbothered in the face of extremely powerful enemies.
“Charge! Kill Meng Chao Ran!” The ninth grade Revered Martial Artist raised his arm; a sharp and cold light flashed in his eyes.
At that point, the faint sounds of fighting and killing were heard from the nine peaks of Beyond the Heavens Sect. In the direction of the main peak, there was even black smoke rising up high…
Meng Chao Ran and Wu Yun Liang stood shoulder to shoulder with a calm countenance without a single bit of emotion.
Wu Yun Liang glanced at Meng Chao Ran as if he was asking: Where is your disciple?
Meng Chao Ran frowned momentarily: Still not out of closed-door training.
Wu Yun Liang’s brows twitched: When we fight, take your disciple and run first!
Meng Chao Ran’s countenance remained unchanged: Alright!
They had been martial brothers for a few decades and didn’t need to speak for them to understand the other’s intentions.
Wu Yun Liang’s thoughts were clear: The enemies’ target is you. Diwu Qing Rou still needs me to complete some sort of plan. Therefore, I will be okay. As long as you are able to escape, I will be unharmed.
At that very moment, there was a loud explosion. The strange sound emitted from a room, and a powerful aura was suddenly released.
Meng Chao Ran and Wu Yun Liang frowned. This was the aura of a breakthrough!
Tan Tan had broken through at this critical moment! Sixth grade Martial Artist!
Under normal circumstances, this would have been a happy event. But, currently, eight Revered Martial Artists and four Great level masters were like tigers ready to pounce. A measly Martial Artist breaking through was not worth mentioning. In fact, this akin to asking to be killed.
“Huh? There is one more person? He is breaking through right now?” A Revered Martial Artist in white smiled, “He has great fortitude!”
A door creaked, and Tan Tan walked out. He ran over in a daze, “Master, master, I broke through again!”
He suddenly paused and stared. Stunned, he said, “Oh? You have guests?”
Wu Yun Liang’s eyes twitched: You punk. You stuck your face out at the wrong time! Although you just broke through, you just did it with your master’s life! Motherf*, our lives are on the line, and you are talking about guests… Your stupidity should have its limit…
However, Meng Chao Ran, on the other hand, was clear about his own disciple’s strength and thought to himself: Good disciple. You have appeared just at the right time!
Sure enough, the four people turned to look. The moment they saw him, everyone’s eyes widened!
Oh god, how could there be a person be this ugly! They could see that even though this person wasn’t old, his face looked like a child. He wore a short cloak with an embroidery of red and green flowers with a pair of purple shorts on his legs. Despite the cold weather he actually showed off both his hairy legs.
He wore a scholarly cap on his head. One could describe his appearance as One big ear and another small ear. One ear went in front to greet the wind while the other behind flapping around. One large eye and another eye small. One of them was shaped in a peculiar bell shape while the other appeared pointy like a triangle. Both his eyebrows appeared different while one was long and bushy, the other was short and thin. Both of them pointing in different directions. His nose was like a pillar which completely separated both his eyes. His face seemed like a platter with a small cute cherry mouth!
He also had a voice which seemed to linger for days. It sounded like a hungry ravenous wolf who had its way with a small duck. It sounded as though the male duck was screaming pitifully for its life as the hungry wolf howled at its climax…
The twelve of them shuddered in disgust! There was actually such a thing in this world!
Tan Tan was still unable to recognize the danger as he saw everyone’s eyes fixated on him with wide eyes. He swung his arm and pulled a mirror from his chest. He looked and looked again. After a brief moment, he said with satisfaction, “No wonder all of you admire me like this. I also think that I am very handsome…”
With a gulp, all fourteen of them swallowed their saliva. The only female Revered Martial Artist almost puked. She pointed at Tan Tan with a trembling hand as if she was pointing at a monster, “You… you… you…”
“Very handsome, right?” Tan Tan reached his up and teased his hair. He even winked and said, “Beauty, it is a pity that you are a little old. Otherwise, I really could… haha… you know.”
This female Revered Martial Artist almost collapsed. She stomped and yelled, “Vile beast!”
However, at this time, Meng Chao Ran who was standing still suddenly moved. His white outfit flashed like lightning, and he moved away from the crowd! He used his Fleeting Cloud Movement!
Snow gathers in the cloud,
shocking to the heavens,
as if forward, as if backward,
as if there, as if gone!
All twelve people were stunned. They have given Meng Chao Ran a great opportunity! The instant that Meng Chao Ran made his move, Wu Yun Liang’s body also spun. Snow flew all over as he sent all of the snow around him up into the air. In a flash, the area of three to four hundred feet became foggy and vision was poor.
The twelve martial masters yelled in anger and chased after Meng Chao Ran! They immediately regretted not having been more alert.
However, this was not something that they could be blamed for. Tan Tan’s appearance was far too unexpected! The twelve then swore to themselves: We wouldn’t be that stunned even if we were to encounter some sort of strange demon. However it is an achievement to be able to look at this punk without fainting…
Everyone realized: Just as extremely beautiful people can be used as weapons, hideous people can also be used in a similar fashion. The power of looks is immense, capable to even topple large nations!
Meng Chao Ran’s figure suddenly flashed like a meteor and disappeared. He grabbed Tan Tan with one hand, without even pausing for a second. He turned to see the twelve people chasing after him into the Purple Bamboo Forest!
At the same time, an icy chill flashed and a sword appeared in his hand. It was still Fleeting Snow Cloud Movement!
This action had surpassed everyone’s expectation!
All of them had thought that Meng Chao Ran was thinking of escaping with his disciple and thus put all of their efforts into giving chase. Who would have been able to anticipate that he would suddenly turn back and launch an attack on them?
The light of the sword flashed and appeared like a rainbow. Two screams rang out and the blood from their bodies covered the mist in a deep red. Two loud booms echoed throughout and Meng Chao Ran let out a painful scream. He then rushed into Purple Bamboo Forest with Tan Tan!
The area was filled with rustling noises as the purple bamboos fell in great number!
“Go!” Wu Yun Liang called out. In the snowy space, the sound of people striking one another with their palms was heard. More than five people let out a grunt at the same time. The snow in Purple Bamboo Forest shot out like ice.
It was mixed with bamboo leaves like some sort of dream!
The whistling sounds continued. It was the sound of purple bamboo being cut and shot out like spears.
“Insolent!” A ninth grade Revered Martial Artist roared angrily like thunder in the sky. A powerful force suddenly burst out. Snow filled the air as if there was a whirlwind; they were sucked away with a swoosh.
The entire surrounding area was cleared!
The moment everyone looked, their eyes were practically ripped apart.
