Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 260 Chaos!
“Second young master Ji Mo, you appear to be doing well.” A clear voice resounded.
“Who are you?” Ji Mo stretched lazily as he gradually opened his eyes. All of a sudden he shouted, “Eldest young master Gao? Are you here? It is an honor to have a such a special guest join us. Brother Cheng, please bring us some good tea! The best kind of tea!”
Upon hearing this, Cheng Yun He’s face turned black and was filled with rage. He was extremely annoyed and wanted to kick this punk out from his premises.
Do you really think that this is your house and that I am your servant, at your beck and call?
However, Cheng Yun He had no choice but to swallow his pride and ordered for the helpers in the house to bring in some tea before he disappeared. He decided to leave things to Gao Sheng and let him deal with them. The past couple of days had been torturous for Cheng Yun He which left him extremely angry and frustrated by his guests.
Was this second young master Ji unaware that he was overstepping his boundaries as a guest? He was treating Cheng Yun He as a servant and had no respect for his house. Who would have been able to bear being treated like that?
“Brother Ji, why are you interested in hanging out at the Continent Center?” Gao Sheng questioned as he smiled and sat down opposite Ji Mo.
“Young master Gao is wrong!” Ji Mo said as he straightened up. “I will decide to go wherever I want to. Moreover, the Continent Center is not part of your Gao clan’s property, is it? Are you trying to say that you, Gao Sheng can be here whereas I can’t?
“That is absolutely not what I meant.” Gao Sheng said amicably as he smiled and continued, “I am just worried that Brother Ji is lost and it would be terrible if you were unable to find your way back home.”
“Young master Gao, don’t worry even if I get lost… I wouldn’t run into your home…” Ji Mo laughed in response. “Eldest young master Gao, I heard that during your training journey, your young mistress Huyan has also decided to go to the Lower Three Heavens as well. Well, it seems that you and your fiancee will be able to have a happy reunion at the Continent Center Citadel!”
“…” Gao Sheng’s countenance changed. The veins on his forehead began to show even more clearly than before almost as though they were about to pop out.
Young mistress Huyan that Ji Mo was referring to was to be married to Gao Sheng and they were paired up even before she was born. She was the second young mistress of the Huyan clan in the Middle Three Heavens. However, it was heard that eldest young master Gao Sheng was unhappy with the marriage arrangement because of her appearance. She was tall and sturdy. Moreover, she had an extremely muscular back and prominent broad shoulders which made her seem like a man.
As a result, Gao Sheng tried to hide from this young mistress Huyan at Diwu Qing Rou’s place… Ji Mo was trying to provoke him by bringing up this issue to annoy him and it seemed to be extremely effective when dealing with Gao Sheng.
“I heard that young mistress Huyan loves brother Gao fervently. She even traveled thousands of miles from Middle Three Heavens to Lower Three Heavens. This sort of love has the ability to touch heaven and earth.”
Ji Mo laughed loudly and said, “Eldest young master Gao, you should not let down such a loving beauty.”
“Do you not believe that I will immediately rip your mouth apart if you say another word?” Gao Sheng grinded his teeth in anger as he roared ferociously.
“I am so scared of you. Ahwooh…” Ji Mo sneered, “Do you not believe that I will immediately tell the entire world that you are taking refuge here if you continue to threaten me like that? I will let your ‘beautiful’ fiancée run over here and express her love to you?”
The two ground their teeth and glared at one another like two fighting cocks. After a long while, they suddenly burst into laughter.
Gao Sheng leisurely leaned back on his recliner as he said, “Ji Mo, I heard that you have been staying in Iron Cloud recently?”
“Mm, I still was not aware that you were hiding in Great Zhao. You seem really well-informed.” Ji Mo finally lifted his body off the recliner and sat opposite Gao Sheng.
“If you were staying in Iron Cloud, I am sure that you must have seen the famous King of Hell Chu?” Gao Sheng asked with interest, “What does King of Hell Chu look like?”
Ji Mo sighed and said, “Gao Sheng, I know why you came today. But this matter, I cannot discuss with you.”
“You have your friends, and I have mine.” Ji Mo said frankly, “Like you said if I stayed in Iron Cloud, how could I not know King of Hell Chu? But… I see him as a friend. Do you understand what I mean?”
The smile on Gao Sheng’s face slowly disappeared; he said somewhat seriously, “You are saying… King of Hell Chu is your friend?”
“Yes! That is exactly what I meant!” Ji Mo nodded, “That is why I cannot tell you anything relating to him.”
“I understand!” Gao Sheng nodded softly. He then smiled and said, “I won’t force you.”
Originally he had planned on asking him a few polite questions about the King of Hell Chu. However, Ji Mo said everything he was willing to say even before he started asking questions. Moreover, Ji Mo had made it clear that he didn’t want to discuss this matter any further.
You have your friends, and I have mine. Just as you won’t sell out your friends, neither will I.
Gao Sheng thought to himself: If Ji Mo speaks this way, then he is definitely not lying.
However, he didn’t know that while Ji Mo didn’t lie, he didn’t say something. It was that he and the King of hell were not just friends. They were brothers!
“This young master is…” Gao Sheng looked at Rui Bu Tong.
“Rui Bu Tong!” Rui Bu Tong nodded and smiled, “Young master Gao, I have admired you for a long time.”
“Oh, young master Rui is also a person of Middle Three Heavens?” Gao Sheng attentively asked, “And which clan has to privilege of having such a handsome and talented young descendant like young master Rui?”
“I do not dare to assume that I am handsome and talented. As for which clan I am in… I don’t have one.” Rui Bu Tong smiled, “Young master Gao thinks far too highly of me.”
“You don’t know him?” Ji Mo pointed to Rui Bu Tong and asked in surprise. “Gao Sheng, you didn’t just arrive in the Lower Three Heavens for training just recently right? Is it correct to assume that you have been here for quite a long time?”
“It has been two years.” Gao Sheng sighed. It was all because he had to avoid that demoness that he had been unable to go home for two years now. However, now that they were talking about it, he felt bitter again.
“No wonder.” Ji Mo said, “But even if you don’t know about Rui Bu Tong, surely you are aware of the Stealing God and Thieving Ghost, right?”
“Stealing God and Thieving Ghost?” Gao Sheng immediately became serious, “Could it be?”
“Rui Bu Tong is the disciple of those two! He made his debut in Middle Three Heavens more than a year ago. The name Through the Heavens Robber is extremely infamous…” Ji Mo glanced at Gao Sheng, “You are really ignorant…”
“It’s you!” Gao Sheng was startled. He had thought that he had been the King of hell Chu but it turned out that he was a thief!
Now that he knew Rui Bu Tong’s identity, Gao Sheng had even more of a headache, “Then… Brother Rui, the more than one hundred recent cases of grand theft… were all by you?”
Gao Sheng quietly swallowed.
There were millions of bank notes as well as a number of rare treasures. Even Gao Sheng was filled with envy when he saw all those things. While the bank notes could not be used in Upper Three Heavens, they were regularly used in the Middle Three Heavens.
This was an extremely large fortune.
For Great Zhao, this was a major case! However, it seemed that their opponent was the disciple of the two tough guys, Stealing God and Thieving Ghost…
They could not take in this punk. If they provoked the two monsters, Stealing God and Thieving Ghost, Diwu Qing Rou’s Great Zhao and his Gao clan would bear the brunt of the punishment…
“Do you think that this was something that I wanted to do?” Rui Bu Tong unexpectedly started to get angry, “If it was not for this second young master Ji… He has become so poor ever since he came down here so he forced me to go stealing every day.”
Gao Sheng’s eyes widened as he thought to himself: You are the disciple of Stealing God and Thieving Ghost; who would dare to force you? Isn’t it because your hands are itchy or because King of Hell Chu had asked you to? Yet, you pushed the blame onto Ji Mo…
“Hey, hey. Speaking of that, it’s really easy to find money here.” Ji Mo smiled happily as he pulled out a stack of banknotes from his robe and stuffed it into Gao Sheng’s hand, “Take it, take it. We should share the wealth. I, Ji Mo, am not a stingy person.”
Gao Sheng did not know whether to laugh or cry.
“Ji Mo, let me ask you a question. We are peers from Middle Three Heavens so you have to answer me honestly.” Gao Sheng pushed the stack of bank notes back into Ji Mo’s hands and said in a serious tone, “If the King of Hell Chu also comes to Great Zhao… your stance would be…?”
“In a short time, I will be returning to Middle Three Heavens already!” Ji Mo said casually.
“Oh? That is very good then.” Gao Sheng’s face relaxed.
“Eldest young master Gao, do you know where the other trainers from my clan are?”
“Your brothers are heading toward the Continent Center.” Gao Sheng sighed, “No just your Ji clan, the Luo clan, the Gu clan, the Mo clan, the Black Saber clan, the Liu clan, the Dong clan, the Wang clan… Almost all of the clans that had come down to train are going to the Continent Center…”
Gao Sheng counted his fingers and appeared as though his head was about to explode, “It’s all because of the damn Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber… Ah, this is really too much.”
Gao Sheng watched Ji Mo’s countenance as he spoke.
“Ask the Heavens Sword? I have never heard of this before.” Ji Mo frowned pensively, “I have really never heard of the Ask the Heavens Sword Saint from eight thousand years ago. Could it be… that our family’s records are wrong?”
“Motherf*, what Ask the Heavens Sword? It’s all a lie!” Gao Sheng cursed, “That bastard King of Hell Chu had intentionally come up with this scheme as part of his plan to cause internal chaos in Great Zhao!”
“But what does the business between Great Zhao and Iron Cloud have to do with you?” Ji Mo rolled his eyes, “You can enjoy the excitement just like watching a show. Why are you even getting so worked up about? Could it be that you want to join in the fight for power in the Lower Three Heavens? Eldest young master Gao, has your life in the Gao clan become far too comfortable for you lately? Do you want to do something a little stimulating?”
Gao Sheng immediately recovered. He coughed dryly and said, “Nonsense! How could I do that?”
Ji Mo sneered to himself as he thought: Are you not doing that? In fact, it seems strange if you didn’t.
Gao Sheng continued to beat around the bush for a while. However, Ji Mo was careful. In the end, he couldn’t ask for anything and was played by him instead. The two rolled eyes and poked at each other, but were both evenly matched. In the end, Gao Sheng decided to play it safe to ensure that he didn’t offend the second young master Ji.
After a long time, he didn’t manage to achieve anything and returned in frustration…
That night, a storm surged in Great Zhao’s Continent Center Citadel. The Underworld Saber had suddenly appeared on the east side and then on the west side. In a flash, it created a trail of bloodshed and caused an uproar…
The entire Continent Center was like a boiling hotpot.
That night, there were at least a million people who were not able to sleep.
Dong Wu Shang and Luo Ke Di played around like mad. The two of them had changed and transformed their appearances such that they became unrecognizable. Thus they did not care about anything and ran about freely. Dong Wu Shang went out to cause trouble with the saber. Luo Ke Di assisted him and conveniently robbed a few great houses along the way…
He did not have thieving skills that Rui Bu Tong had. Instead, he jumped into the heat of the action and started robbed while things were messy and chaotic…
Whenever Dong Wu Shang was in danger, second young master Luo would let out an “ahwooh” and appear. The two of them would then join forces, break out of the encirclement, and disappear, only to reappear at another part of the citadel…
