Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 256 Storms Brew In The Center Continent!
“The two Saint level masters fought with one another and this resulted in the creation of a large hole in the Upper Three Heavens. After which, they flew down to the Middle Three Heavens and fought there for nine days and nine nights! The aftermath resulted in the sinking of more than twenty large mountains!”
“Yes, exactly! They sank twenty large mountains!” The middle-aged man dress in black said earnestly, “The area in which they fought at is now known as the Boundless Sea of the Middle Three Heavens. Are you aware of this place?”
Everyone nodded as though they knew what he was talking about and had physically seen the place he was referring to.
“After the two Saint level masters were finished fighting in the Middle Three Heavens, they punched a large hole in the Middle Three Heavens and moved down to the Lower Three Heavens.” This middle-aged man continued to describe it with great passion extremely vividly.
“They even traveled all the way down to the Lower Three Heavens?”
“Of course they did! Where else would the Ask the Heavens Sword have come from?” The middle-aged man in black rolled his eyes in annoyance, “Do you want to listen? If you don’t I’ll just keep my mouth shut and not talk anymore.”
“No, no, no… Please continue… Waiter! Bring us two more jars of your best wine!”
“Hmm… Alright. After they fought in the Lower Three Heavens, both of the Saint level masters were exhausted but their fight was at a stalemate!” The middle-aged man dressed in black sighed and said, “It was then that Underworld Saber Saint, Huang Quan gave his all in his final slash…”
“The Ask the Heavens Sword Saint, Ji Wen Tian also concentrated all of his energies into his final slash!”
Everyone’s heart jumped in eager anticipation.
“…Boom! There was a loud sound as their weapons met. It echoed throughout Heaven and earth and the entire area was turned upside down. Everything changed. The clouds were blown away by the immense force and lightning flashed across the sky.” The voice of the man recounting about the incident turned extremely solemn as though he was mourning, “The two saint level masters both perished together…”
Everyone’s voice was filled with regret.
“However, even though the both of the Saint level masters had died, their sword and saber remained intact. Moreover, the more mysterious thing was that both of these legendary weapons had absorbed the spirit of their respective Saint level masters, forming a saintly imprint. Are you aware of what a saintly imprint is and what it can do?”
“Could it be…”
“Absolutely!” The man smacked his hand loudly on the table. “All of their experiences and skills of both Saint level masters are concentrated within the legendary divine weapons themselves. Therefore, this has resulted in a legend which has persisted for the past eight thousand years…”
“What legend?” Everyone hastily asked.
“This legend is that the Ask the Heavens Sword is able to deal heavenly justice with its slash! While the Underworld Saber sends people to the underworld!” The middle-aged man in black said softly. His appearance seemed to become more like a lonely martial master without an opponent.
“Although the Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber are enemies, once the sword appears, the saber would too reveal itself. It will definitely show itself to display its glory against the sword. This is the fate of these both weapons!”
“Oh? No wonder…”
“Yes!” The middle-aged man in black sighed, “Gentlemen, you only know that Ask the Heavens Sword has appeared, but what you don’t know is that Underworld Saber has also appeared in this world. Moreover, there is even more terror and bloodshed which it leaves in its wake!”
Everyone was terrified! In the entire restaurant, a pin drop could be heard clearly.
“This is a catastrophe of Jiang Hu but at the same time, it is also the greatest opportunity for the people of Jiang Hu!” The middle-aged man in black sighed and said, “No matter who it is, as long as they are able to obtain the Ask the Heavens Sword or Underworld Saber, they will have a chance to open the imprint of that Saint level master! Moreover, the individual who is able to open that imprint will be able to become a Saint level master in a short time period!”
“Become a Saint level master!”
The whole restaurant suddenly boiled with excitement.
Who didn’t want to become a Saint level master? Saint level masters were legendary figures. In the whole of the Nine Heavens continents and in all of history, how many Saint level masters were there?
People didn’t even dare to dream of achieving such a goal! There were many who tried their entire lives only to reach the level or Martial Master! Between Martial Master and Martial Saint, how many levels more were needed? Martial Great Master, Revered Martial Artist, Martial King, Martial Emperor, Martial Monarch, Martial Saint… Each title had nine grades, and each grade had different levels, peak, middle, and low.
Oh my god, one could not even imagine it.
Today, an opportunity had presented itself! With a single sword or a saber, they would be able to reach the pinnacle in just a single step and achieve the dreams of many in a blink of an eye!
Such an opportunity was beyond rare and made the entire world tremble! Right at that moment, two of these legendary weapons had unexpectedly appeared at once!
Their fanaticism rose!
Their blood was boiling!
“Tell us! Tell us about Underworld Saber!” Everyone was feverish…
“However, in the legends, all those who obtained Ask the Heavens and Underworld Saber, if they were lucky enough to open the Saint imprint, they would have a fighting match with their opponent who obtained the other Saint imprint! This is the obsession of two Saint level masters!” The middle-aged man in black said slowly, “It is really too dangerous.”
“What is so dangerous about it? Is this not how things should be?” Everyone voiced loudly, “Even the saber and the sword have become spiritual things. Moreover, this is the last wish of the two Saint level masters. If you receive an inheritance from someone, won’t you have to honor their final wish? Isn’t this expected?”
This sort of risk had unexpectedly left them wanting even more…
“Hmm, do you think that the saintly imprints inside Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber are that easy to open?” The middle-aged man in black rolled his eyes, “First, you will have to request for the permission from either Ask the Heavens Sword or Underworld Saber. Second, if you are not sincere, even if you get the saber or the sword, it would be useless. In short, you must have the fortune to open the saintly imprint… This is easier said than done…”
“Gibberish! If it was that easy, then being a Saint level master wouldn’t be worth anything!”
“No matter what, regardless of whether one meets the requirement, the first thing you would have to do is get the item.” Someone rubbed his chin with a longing countenance.
“That is true. Mm, I have heard that the people who currently hold the Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber do not have very high cultivation levels. They heavily depended on the power of these heavenly weapons. Moreover, I heard that all of the Lower Three Heavens is in pursuit of these two individuals in order to obtain their weapons. Almost all of the sects and people in Jiang Hu gather at…” The middle-aged man in black said, “This kind of heaven-sent opportunity, everyone wants it…”
For the time being, the entire restaurant suddenly became quiet once again. Each person had his own thoughts.
It could not be denied that there was a fierce feeling in each person’s heart: If I had such weapons in my hands…
If I could become a legendary figure…
If I can hold Ask the Heavens Sword in my hand and battle against Underworld Saber…
The thought of it was enough to make one feel excited. Everyone who was in the restaurant and heard about this news became as excited as fighting cocks. They all imagined themselves wielding the Ask the Heavens Sword and opening the saintly imprint…
“What is the use of wanting? Hmm, does anyone know where these two blades are currently?” Next to the window, a young man sighed and said, “I really want to give it a try.”
The young man in black sitting opposite him also sighed with an icy countenance, “This is a great opportunity to become a legend… ahh…”
He shook his head and sighed endlessly.
Suddenly, the whole restaurant was filled with the sounds of sighing.
“However, I have also heard that the Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber do have any pre-requisites in the cultivation level of their users…” That youth said, “I heard that even ordinary people who come into possession of them could become a Saint level master…”
“I hear that those two blades are heading to Continent Center?” The young man in black asked.
After that, the two did not say anything else.
Everyone became thoughtful.
Not too long, someone stood straight up and yelled, “Check please!” He went out the door and hastily walked off.
Right after, more and more people left.
Within moments, more than half of the Jiang Hu people left with their sabers and swords.
The two young men looked at each and smiled.
Those two were, of course, Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing.
The two weapons that everyone had been talking about, “Ask the Heavens Sword” and “Underworld Saber,” were fictitious. Those two weapons were simply a sword and a saber that Chu Yang had made!
The two of them calmly finished eating and walked out. They went far away from the town before bursting into laughter and rolling around on the ground unable to control themselves.
“Talented… Really talented…” Chu Yang shook his head with a look of admiration on his face, “I never imagined that they could turn an ordinary sword into Ask the Heavens Sword. These punks really have the guts to stir up a storm…”
“I could never have imagined that they were capable of making such a ruckus…” Gu Du Xing’s face twisted. It looked as though he was having great difficulty holding back his laughter. He said with admiration, “If this continues, Diwu Qing Rou will really have a headache…”
“Ask the Heavens Sword, Underworld Saber…” Chu Yang was in awe, “I thought they would have to discuss with one other in order to come up with such an interesting story. Two saint level masters have unexpectedly appeared…! This… is too much!”
“Saint level masters from more than eight thousand years ago!” Gu Du Xing sighed and said, “Even if someone has doubts about this, who would be capable of verifying this matter in Lower Three Heavens?”
“Check?” Chu Yang laughed loudly, “Even if they are able to verify this matter, who would believe it? If you were unaware of the origins of this story and someone told you that this information is false, would you believe them?”
Gu Du Xing thought for a while and could not help but laugh. If it was him, he would not have believed it either.
Even though he was a suspicious person, he would still have to see for himself.
“This is a truly great tactic.” Chu Yang smiled and said, “I was worried that the moment the sword and saber caused trouble, Diwu Qing Rou would deal with it right away… Now, I cannot believe they have managed to cause as huge a commotion as this. If Diwu Qing Rou keeps them for himself, the Jiang Hu people would probably level the Minister’s manor along with Golden Horse Riders Department…”
Gu Du Xing laughed happily. As they continued laughing, the two of them advanced toward Continent Center in high spirits.
This part of the trip was extremely lively.
Almost all of Jiang Hu was boiling over. Each day, they heard different rumors. In short, Ask the Heavens Sword was like this and like that; Underworld Saber had appeared here and there…
All of Jiang Hu was in an uproar. Everyone was pouring toward the Continent Center!
On the way, there was a constant stream of Jiang Hu people.
There were even rumors…
Some hidden sect had fully returned to Jiang Hu because of this matter and they were advancing to Continent Center.
Some old reclusive evil guy had also suddenly appeared and was headed for the Continent Center…
So and so sect… heading to Continent Center…
Then there was a day that someone suddenly publicly announced that he was actually the descendant of Ask the Heavens Sword Saint, Ji Wen Tian, from eight thousand years ago! This sword was the inheritance of his ancestors and should be returned to his ancestral shrine…
After a few days, the three hundred thirty-something generation’s great-grandson of Underworld Saber Saint, Xia Huang Quan also appeared in Jiang Hu. He announced that he would obtain his ancestral saber at any price…
Subsequently, there were even more than a dozen sword sects who went into Jiang Hu calling themselves the true descendants of Ask the Heavens Sword Sect…
Dozens of sects also announced that they were the true descendants of Underworld Saber Sect. They reasoned that because of the number of years that had passed, they had lost their saber and their sects gradually became much poorer and were not as recognized as they used to be. However, with the appearance of the saber, their sects had the chance to rise once more. If any dared to stand in the way of their recovery, they would fight with them to the death…
This was truly amazing: One saber and one sword emerged in Jiang Hu causing all the wind and rain from all directions to gather together at the Continent Center…
