Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 258 Deep Foresigh
The crowd rushed in, roaring like a huge tide.
The width of the citadel gate was sizeable. It could fit more than six horses side by side. However, the moment that the gate was open, the martial experts which had been lying in wait outside rushed in from all different directions, trying to squeeze in..
The entire situation was chaotic as they shoved and pushed one another as much as they could in order to force their way into the citadel. It was a large mess of people trying to get in all at the same time!
Even though the citadel gates were open, it became a bottleneck as no one wanted to give way to one another and everyone tried to force their way through moving into the same place. This resulted in the progress of people moving into the citadel being so slow that no one was even able to go through. Everyone began cursing and swearing in annoyance once again.
“Stop shoving your elders!”
“Stop squishing people and wait for your turn!”
“Hurry up and move…”
“F*, are you trying to kill me…”
The most outrageous thing was that there were two tall surly men with beards amidst the crowd being shoved into a small space. They were extremely distinct because of their height and even though they had the advantage of seeing the entire situation, they were unable to shove their way through. In fact, they ended up being overpowered by the crowd and as they were squished to a corner, their faces began to turn red as they were practically squished against one another. Face to face and nose to nose, eventually, they ended up appearing as though they were kissing as their mouths were squished together…
The moment that their lips touched one another, they instinctively spat at the other’s face…
This situation made everyone roar in laughter. Even though everyone was cramped to the point that they weren’t even able to move, they couldn’t help but laugh hysterically. However, the result of everyone laughing caused their stomachs to expand and fill with air resulting in the crowd squeezing even tighter together…
“These are truly people from Jiang Hu!” Chu Yang said as he watched the entire situation unfold in front of him. “If the military were the ones going through the gate, such a situation wouldn’t even have occurred. In fact, even if there were a million people going into the citadel gate at once, it wouldn’t happen! However, the number of people here don’t even come close to ten thousand and such a thing has already happened…This is truly hilarious!” Chu Yang couldn’t help but let out a laugh.
“This is truly a mess!” Gu Du Xing gave an accurate description of the entire situation.
“That is exactly true! If we were to compare the people of Jiang Hu to that of the military, they are way more disorganized! Even though these people have a higher cultivation level relative to an ordinary soldier, if a thousand Jiang Hu people fought a thousand soldiers who had received proper training, it is likely that the soldiers would be victorious! This is the difference that discipline and organization can make! Moreover, it would be likely that the soldiers themselves wouldn’t suffer many casualties relative to the Jiang Hu side …”
Chu Yang said seriously, “Therefore there is a saying in the military: If One Jiang Hu person is powerful; ten Jiang Hu people are terrifying; one hundred Jiang Hu people are ordinary, and one thousand Jiang Hu people… is just a pile of meat waiting to be chopped up!”
Gu Du Xing thought carefully for a while before finally nodding his head in agreement.
“That is why Jiang Hu people are only suited for Jiang Hu.” Chu Yang gave his conclusion, “Never expect them to do anything big!”
At that time, the jam at the citadel gate had finally dissipated. They started to rush past one another as they entered the Continent Center Citadel. Everyone’s face was red, and each person looked as if the Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber were displayed right in front of his face for the taking…
It was not until more than half of the people went in that Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing lifted their legs and walked slowly into the citadel.
Only after a few steps, they saw two people punching and kicking on the ground. These two did not stop rolling right outside the citadel…
It was indeed the two people who were “kissing” earlier. Naturally, the two felt so embarrassed that they could no longer face anyone…
Chu Yang smiled and walked around them as he advanced into the citadel. However, even after he was a way off, he was still able to hear the loud sound of kicking and punching along with cursing and painful howling…
“What do you think the guys are currently doing?” Chu Yang smiled.
“I am guessing… Those two people are definitely taking the jade calling card and making themselves Diwu Qing Rou’s guests. As for the other two, they are definitely somewhere stirring up trouble…” Gu Du Xing said with certainty.
“Yes, when I assigned them to their tasks, I thought carefully about this.” Chu Yang laughed, “Ji Mo is a lazy punk. If he could sit, he would not stand. Since he has a place to rest, he would definitely not let the opportunity pass him by. Moreover, Rui Bu Tong loves to steal things. Being a guest at a great house is too much of a convenience… Hahaha…”
Gu Du Xing’s eyes widened. This big brother even took thievery into account for his plans…
“As for Dong Wu Shang, he is a fighter and he naturally likes to cause trouble. The more people there are, the more of them there are for him to fight, the more excited he becomes… Therefore I am sure he is still fighting…” Chu Yang held out a finger.
“Isn’t that also Luo Ke Di?”
“Well, Luo Ke Di is also a king of troublemakers, but this guy has some control… So when there is a powerful opponent, Luo Ke Di will come into play. He will probably drag Dong Wu Shang away and hide!” Chu Yang smiled, “If Dong Wu Shang was alone, he probably won’t run away until the last minute. This is too dangerous. Moreover, Luo Ke Di is not the same as before…”
“So that’s it.” Gu Du Xing finally understood Chu Yang’s arrangements. He did not just consider their personalities but also all the situations that could happen, the dangers they could run into, and what method would be used.
“Since that’s the case, why did you switch the sword and saber?” Gu Du Xing wondered, “You know full well that Ji Mo is good with swords and Dong Wu Shang is good with sabers… Why did you give Ji Mo the saber and Dong Wu Shang the sword? Is this not counter effective?”
“Not so.” Chu Yang said, “First, Ji Mo has his own sword; I cannot let him use a different sword over a long period of time. This will cause his spirit to lose connection with his own sword…”
Gu Du Xing’s eyes brightened.
Chu Yang’s words were transcendent. Someone who was not a sword expert would not have been able to say such words!
Even if a sword was made from ordinary metal it would have its own spirit! Spirituality!
This was the reason.
“It is the same thing with Dong Wu Shang. In Dong Wu Shang’s case, he is far too persistent with sabers. This should be a good thing, but there is also a disadvantage to that. It is a fact that the way of the saber and the way of the sword share common ground. This is especially true when it comes to the agility of the sword. Before reaching the peak state, this is not achievable with the saber. Other than protecting Dong Wu Shang’s connection to his saber, I want Dong Wu Shang to also be enlightened in the agility of the way of the sword in this deadly battle.”
“The more dangerous the situation is, the more likely he is to break through. This is even more advantageous to his training in the way of the saber!” Chu Yang said casually, “If I told him this beforehand, it would not be effective. So I intentionally planned it in such a way and hoped that Dong Wu Shang would be enlightened…”
“So that’s it.” Gu Du Xing was pensive. He could not help but feel even more admiration for Chu Yang. Chu Yang’s thorough thinking had reached the point where every little thing mattered. Who would have guessed that such a simple set up with one saber and one sword could have such deep intentions?
“At that time, didn’t you say that you would arrange some sort of setup?” Gu Du Xing said, “Why don’t you need to all of a sudden? Instead, you chose to let Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong go?”
“Is this not a setup?” Chu Yang said in surprise, “Isn’t my setup not already in use?”
“Used?” Gu Du Xing’s eyes widened.
“At that time, in front of Cheng Yun He, I revealed Ji Mo’s group name. Of course, they would be able to investigate the background of those guys. Moreover in such a situation, who would believe that it was without the King of Hell Chu’s involvement? At very least, someone on Diwu Qing Rou’s side would surely see through this.” Chu Yang smiled in satisfaction, “Therefore the moment they arrived in Great Zhao, Diwu Qing Rou’s people would think that… I would be among them… Understand?”
“So they will choose to watch Ji Mo’s group closely in hope of finding you with them?” Gu Du Xing asked in shock.
“That’s why I had already told Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong to go directly back to Middle Three Heavens after everything is done. Also when I am in Great Zhao, I will absolutely not have any contact with them.” Chu Yang smiled.
“I wonder, when that time comes, how Diwu Qing Rou and Cheng Yun He would feel when they see Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong…” Gu Du Xing shook his head smiling. “I am sure they would be very annoyed.”
“Hahaha…” Chu Yang laughed loudly.
“Knowing that those two are brothers of King of Hell Chu and not even dare to touch them…” Gu Du Xing could not help but laugh, “Touching them would be the same as provoking two great clans; they would not dare to let them go free, but they also dare not get too close. Moreover, with the thick skin of these two punks…”
Gu Du Xing sighed, “I cannot imagine how Diwu Qing Rou would feel…”
Diwu Qing Rou was definitely not feeling good.
It could be said that his mood was terrible.
From out of nowhere there was one Ask the Heavens Sword and one Underworld Saber. Diwu Qing Rou was so furious that his chest was about to burst!
Diwu Qing Rou had never shown his anger even if his troops were defeated. He wouldn’t even have half a frown on his face if he lost a few hundred thousand soldiers in a day. But right now, he was so angry that his orifices were blowing steam.
With Nine Heavens Volume in hand, all of its major events that had happened in the past thousands of years were recorded inside! What sort of ridiculous Ask the Heavens Sword Saint was there? Moreover, the Underworld Saber was not even worth discussing…
Yet, such a sword and saber had suddenly appeared… Would this not annoy people? What was more is that … this could not be explained.
Diwu Qing Rou had once sent someone to bring out the Nine Heavens Volume to explain. In the end, it had almost been burned by the people.
“Aren’t these things written by you people?” A King level master took a close look and said authoritatively, “F*! Who are you trying to fool with this tattered book? Do you think everyone in the world is dumb? I can buy as many of these things I want with a few dozen taels!”
It was this sort of talk made Diwu Qing Rou furious.
He had never seen someone who was so irrational. But it was also because of this that Diwu Qing Rou had recognized the seriousness of the situation! If a King level master could so easily believe in such a rumor and not even bother to accept an explanation, what more the others?
Ordinary people in Jiang Hu would be even less rational.
In the Prime Minister Manor.
“Yun He, what about that Ji young master?” Diwu Qing Rou frowned, “Those saber and sword are not brought here by him, right?”
“The two of them are really carrying swords. Young master Ji has a sword, and young master Rui has a dagger.” Cheng Yun He said cautiously, “In my opinion, the sword of that young master Ji is not Ask the Heavens Sword.”
“Ask the Heavens Sword…” Gao Sheng sneered, “What is this Ask the Heavens Sword? It’s just a conspiracy! That young master Ji is Ji Mo; I will go and see him tomorrow.”
“Even if Ask the Heavens Sword is indeed a conspiracy, we can no longer undo it!” Diwu Qing Rou sighed and said, “This move by the King of Hell Chu is truly beyond my expectations.”
