Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 253 This Shouldn't Be...
Although they had managed to eliminate four of their opponents and the remainder of which were injured, they still had the upper hand in terms of fighting force. Most importantly, Chu Yang’s safety, as well as his identity, was not revealed.
Hence, if they were to continue fighting, it would not be without sacrifice, even if they would win in the end.
Therefore, Meng Chao Ran decided to scare the enemies into retreating so that they would be able to hide and preserve their lives.
Even though their enemies had attacked Beyond the Heavens Sect and he wanted to enact revenge on them, their lives still remained his top priority and he could not help hatred and his emotions cloud his judgment.
This was where Meng Chao Ran’s composure and rational judgment came in handy!
The four opponents were now extremely fearful. Not only had their two leaders died, the remainder of their team was injured. The situation was clear: Even if they continued to fight, they might not even be able to accomplish their task and there was a high chance that they would not make it out alive!
“Let’s go!” the female Revered Martial Artist angrily waved her arm as she took command of her group. Before she left, she gave Meng Chao Ran and his group a hateful look. They had not even bothered to collect the bodies of their fallen comrades before they turned and left in anger.
Meng Chao Ran said in a casual manner, “Please give the Prime Minister a message… Beyond the Heavens Sect will remember the debt of today!”
The female Revered Martial Artist snorted arrogantly and walked off. The four of them disappeared in the heavy snow almost as quickly as they had arrived. This left the five people standing in the midst of a blood-soaked battlefield.
Meng Chao Rang watched as their group vanished into the surroundings. The moment that they disappeared from sight, his legs wobbled and he plopped to the ground. Before he fainted, he said, “Chu Yang, quickly head to the cliff…”
His face was pale and the breathing was weak and faint.
“Are you Chu Yang?” Wu Yun Liang’s eyes widened in shock. He could not believe his eyes. He refused to believe that this mysterious white individual who had just saved them was Chu Yang. His eyes scanned him from top to bottom in disbelief.
“I am indeed Chu Yang. Eldest martial uncle, it has been a long time.” Chu Yang said as he attempted to close his wound with one hand while he ripped his shirt with his other hand. He then dressed his wound temporarily with the fabric from the hem of his shirt.
“It really is you…” Wu Yun Liang said as he sighed. After which, he rolled and laughed on the ground with great difficulty. “Quickly carry out what your master has told you to do… We are almost going to die…”
Gu Du Xing hobbled over. He let out a dry cough and said, “Ninth grade Revered Martial Artist… how powerful!” He maintained a strong posture, but his injuries were not superficial.
Although Meng Chao Ran’s group was burnt out but didn’t Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing cover a great distance and rush over in order to reach the thick of the fight? The very fact that they were able to achieve such a victory despite the situation when they arrived was already the best possible result…
After directing Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing into a secret cave, Wu Yun Liang was completely relaxed and immediately fell unconscious.
This cave was hidden under many layers of snow. In the sky, snow continued to fall. In no time, everyone’s footprints disappeared without a trace.
Not long after they left, the Revered Martial Artists of the Golden Horse Riders Department led a large group of people back to the same grounds. However, their targets had already disappeared by then. These people who came back with them were part of Saintly Saber Pavilion and Black Blood League, the two big sects which surrounded Beyond the Heavens Sect…
They plan was to temporarily retreat and return with reinforcements. According to their speculations, all of their targets were seriously injured. Even if they had managed to escape, how far could they have gone? They would not have thought that their opponents would be able to vanish without a trace when they returned!
After they searched the surrounding area for a long time, they were still unable to find anything. The only thing they could do at this point now was to withdraw bitterly.
Underneath the snow cover, inside the cave…
Meng Chao Ran and the other two were unconscious for two days and two nights. Chu Yang gave each of them a drink of Vitality Spring Water so that their lives would not be in danger. However, the three had lost a lot of blood and spiritual power. Moreover, they had been physically exhausted to their extreme limit… They needed to slowly recover from that fight.
After that palm, Gu Du Xing also suffered from internal injuries. He needed two days to remove all of the blood clots in his body. As for Chu Yang’s stomach, he managed to recover a little quicker than everyone else; at most, he had to hear complaints from the sword spirit for a while.
“There is something that I cannot figure out!” Gu Du Xing frowned. He sat with his legs folded and said suspiciously, “Both of us did sneak attacks and our opponents were both ninth grade Revered Martial Artists who we both his right in their hearts! Why did the other individual die immediately while the person who I struck was able to retaliate back? This can’t be!”
Chu Yang coughed dryly and said, “This… this…”
“Too hard to comprehend.” Gu Du Xing could not figure it out no matter what, “It was clear that we both hit the heart! Moreover, I even added an invisible sword aura. Not only that but my martial power is stronger than yours… Why?”
Chu Yang hastily coughed and said, “Maybe some people are different than others and were born with their hearts on the right.” He thought to himself: Perhaps you want me to reveal to you I am the master of Nine Tribulations Sword? That on my sword, there is the sword point and sword edge of Nine Tribulations Sword; which is an equivalent representation of the Nine Tribulations Sword. Did you really think your block of steel can compare to it?
“That is not what I am talking about. How is it possible not to know if I hit the heart or not?” Gu Du Xing said in annoyance, “They are two entirely different feelings! I am not that stupid! What I mean is that the guy who I struck managed to turn around and struck me. However, the guy you snuck up and stabbed died immediately; this does not make sense…”
Chu Yang helplessly looked at Gu Du Xing’s inquisitive appearance and said, “This… I also don’t know. You should go and ask him…”
“F*!” Gu Du Xing was speechless. Ask him? Ask him how? He is dead!
That afternoon, Wu Yun Liang was the first person to come to. It wasn’t until the third day that Meng Chao Ran regained consciousness.
“Why did you come here?” Those were the first words Meng Chao Ran said after waking up. Surprisingly, he looked displeased.
“I was passing by, cough, cough…” Chu Yang laughed, “On the way, I just stopped by to look…”
“On the way?” Meng Chao Ran looked at him suspiciously. He clearly did not trust Chu Yang’s words. However, regardless of the reason, he was able to see his disciple again. Joy slowly appeared on his face. He said in a casual manner, “Earlier, I was still thinking about how you would avenge my death? Never would I have imagined that it wouldn’t be necessary.”
“This is the greatest of hatred, how could revenge not be needed?” Chu Yang sneered, “Since Diwu Qing Rou dares to do such a thing and I do nothing, how can I be worthy of being called your disciple who has been under your care for eighteen years?
“It’s fine as long as we are okay. How is your injury?” Meng Chao Ran looked at his disciple with concerns.
“I am fine.” Chu Yang smiled, “Master, you are also fine.”
At that moment, Meng Chao Ran realized that something was not right. His entire body had been injured and both the internal and external injuries were very serious. Even if he didn’t die, he should at least have been disabled. How was it possible for him to feel the way he did after waking up? He couldn’t help but be surprised.
Wu Yun Liang was a little jealous as he watched master and disciple talking next to him; he grunted and said, “The two of you are surprising sappy; it’s so nauseating…”
“You are just jealous.” Meng Chao Ran smiled, “This is not behavior becoming of a sect master.”
Wu Yun Liang grunted and turned away.
“Master, guess what this is.” Chu Yang showed off a small jade bottle.
Meng Chao Ran took it. He opened the cap, and a fragrance burst out. He immediately felt refreshed and blurted out, “Vitality Spring Water? Where did you get this priceless item?”
“It was by chance that I got it. You are truly well-informed; you even recognize this.” Chu Yang laughed, “This is my gift to you.”
“No. You are alone out there. This is what you need the most. You are giving me so much. What about yourself?” Meng Chao Ran glared, “Take it back; I don’t need it.”
“Oh… I still have some. Just take my gift.” Chu Yang smiled from ear to ear, “Master, I am not the type to not keep some for myself…”
Meng Chao Ran was a little hesitant when Wu Yun Liang stuck out his hand. His eyes were filled with desire as he eyed on the small vial. He said, “Little martial brother, haha, since you don’t need it, why don’t you give it to me…”
“Get lost!” Meng Chao Ran mouth curled up with a look of pride. He held on to the bottle tightly, “This is a gift from my disciple. If you want it, go find your own disciples!”
Wu Yun Liang sighed, “If I have such outstanding disciples, I would be able to die right now without any regrets…”
Meng Chao Ran said generously, “While I cannot give it to you, you can drink some when you need it.”
Wu Yun Liang thought with a frown: Hasn’t all my flattery been for this? After all, I am the master of Beyond the Heavens Sect. I don’t usually have to suck up to anyone…
“Oh… woah…” Tan Tan woke up with a start. The moment he opened his eyes, he saw Chu Yang. He rubbed his eyes and looked again before jumping up in joy, “Chu Yang, you returned? When did you come back? Why didn’t you let us know you were coming back? You…”
Gu Du Xing sat on the side with a frown. He could not help but stare with his eyes wide open. He tore a piece of fabric into two and stuffed them in his ears. It was truly unbearable…
Even though he had heard Luo Ke Di howl every day and the others had thought it was unbearable, now that he had heard Tan Tan’s voice, Luo Ke Di’s voice seemed truly melodic…
“Chu Yang, look, look… during the period that you have been gone, do I look like have become more handsome?” Tan Tan searched in his chest and suddenly cried out, “Woah… that bitch broke my mirror!”
“Mirror?” Chu Yang glared as his whole body shivered.
Wu Yun Liang asked anxiously, “Broken mirror? Is the Heavenly Chi Gathering Fish okay?”
“The Heavenly Chi Gathering Fish is with me.” Meng Chao Ran rolled his eyes, “How could I let this punk hold it while fighting…”
Wu Yun Liang let out a sigh of relief, “That’s good then. That’s good then.”
On the other side, Tan Tan was holding on to Chu Yang and recounting to him everything that had happened. In a blink of an eye, he went from recounting the day they were attacked to what happened three months ago. He talked about different things under the sun switching from one topic to the next before he started to talk about his own appearance. He continued to talk to Chu Yang with extreme enthusiasm…
Meng Chao Ran’s countenance remained unchanged and didn’t move. Meng Chao Ran was already used to this sort of thing happening. His nerves had been trained to their highest level. Wu Yun Liang sighed… He really admired his martial brother. Meng Chao Ran had lived so long with such a person, and he still had not gone crazy yet…
Even though Gu Du Xing already covered his ears, he was unable to block out all the sound. After he listened for a while, he could only feel his head spinning. This was probably worse than having demons in one’s mind. Next to him was someone that kept him from being able to concentrate. With a sigh and blinking eyes, he turned and said, “Chu Yang, heal your martial brother’s injuries… Since he came to, he has yet to stop talking…”
Chu Yang looked at Gu Du Xing in surprise. He suddenly smiled and patted Tan Tan’s shoulder, “Brother, you are very skilled. You are able to move this blockhead. In all of the Nine Heavens continents, you are the first…”
“Really?” Tan Tan was stunned as he eyed Gu Du Xing from top to bottom. It was as if he had finally met a bosom friend, “This big brother, have you also been mesmerized by me? Have my good looks moved you? My good looks…”
Gu Du Xing’s eyes widened in terror. He suddenly let out a moan and became fainted…
