Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 261 Fantastical Ask The Heavens Sword!
“The situation in the Continent Center Citadel has gone out of control.” Chu Yang stood at the highest point of the largest inn in the Continent Center as he watched people moving up and down in all different directions. Hearing the sound of chaos from all around him was truly enjoyable for Chu Yang.
“It really is quite exciting to watch Dong Wu Shang’s fights.” As Gu Du Xing was observing the situation, he grew envious. His character was similar to that of Dong Wu Shang’s. They were both introverts but loved to fight, always eager to fight and kill. Therefore, when he saw the situation in the citadel, he longed to be able to go around fighting other martial artists.
However, there was a difference between Gu Du Xing and Dong Wu Shang. Gu Du Xing was a calm fighter who always maintained his composure while Dong Wu Shang would grow more and more aggressive as the fight continued to drag on.
“This amount of chaos is still not sufficient.” Chu Yang said contemplatively. “This sort of chaos is superficial. It is likely to die down fairly quickly once the training disciples from other clans arrive.
“This is because they are aware of the events which happened in the past and they do not know of any Ask the Heavens Sword or Underworld Saber Saint within the past eight thousand years!” Chu Yang sighed as he pondered out loud, “What can be done in order to incite even more chaos?”
“This might not be the case!” Gu Du Xing said in response to Chu Yang’s thoughts. “This is all part of Ji Mo’s plan. Therefore, if he has come up with such a plan, I am sure that the four of them have discussed how to incite as much chaos as possible. Moreover, I am positive that they have some form of underlying motive. It definitely isn’t as simple as it seems.”
“Underlying motives?” Chu Yang was surprised and caught off-guard by Gu Du Xing’s comment.
“Didn’t Ji Mo ask you to engrave some sort of mysterious symbol on the blade when he took the saber from you?” Gu Du Xing said softly, “Even though I was being raised in the Gu Clan because I was not a direct descendant, I didn’t have the opportunity to view the special collection of books in the clan.”
“That being said, Ji Mo being a direct descendant of the Ji clan would have access to his clan’s documents! Therefore, although I am not aware of what the mark that Ji Mo had requested for you to engrave, I am sure that there is some sort of meaning behind it and that it has a part to play in creating even more chaos.”
“What I guess is that when that mark has been discovered by others, and the scam of the Ask the Heavens Sword Saint has been exposed, this would lead to an even greater commotion!” Gu Du Xing sighed and said, “However, what I am worried about is that they will end up creating too large of a commotion. This could, in turn, result in the great clans of the Middle Three Heavens to participating in the fight and blowing things out of proportion.”
Chu Yang pinched his eyebrows together and thought about everything carefully. After a period of time, he then said hesitantly, “This can’t be, can it?”
“Haha…” Gu Du Xing’s icy face suddenly showed a warm smile, “Perhaps you don’t even recognize this but the six of us, from the moment we met each other, have been fighting among each other. Originally, we didn’t even respect one another. However, you were able to control all the internal fighting to an acceptable level. Given that your martial strength was much lower than all of them at the time, the fact that you were able to control the situation and changed everyone’s point of view. This already in itself had already impressed them.”
“After which, with your help, everyone was able to make large advancements. This confirmed your position as big brother. For any disciple of a clan in the Middle Three Heavens to bring together as many second young masters as you have was virtually impossible. Yet, you were able to accomplish this. Of course part of the reason you were able to do this is that you do not belong to any clan in Middle Three Heavens. However, it is undeniable that your skill is also unquestionable.”
Gu Du Xing said in a deep tone, “As time progressed, everyone fought matches with you. Although you were practically tortured every time, you never got angry and just endured it. This eventually led to the formation of the bonds between each of us and eventually reaching the point that we became brothers. Among us brothers, there is nothing that will be considered as unacceptable. Moreover, big brother wasn’t someone high and mighty, but one of our own. Therefore, everyone felt comfortable and warm.”
Chu Yang pondered quietly and did not speak.
“Therefore, until a month ago, we did not separate.” There was a hint of a smile in Gu Du Xing’s eyes, “All of a sudden, when you said that you wanted to deal with Mo Tian Yun, the five of us were caught by surprise. At that point in time, we discussed the possibilities and you acted as though you had changed your mind by not mentioning it any further. However, Ji Mo and the rest knew that just because you didn’t discuss it didn’t mean that you no longer wanted to do it but rather just that you didn’t want to discuss it with them.”
“You had initially brought up the issue of dealing with Mo Tian Yun because of Xiao Wu. However, at that time, you were a little impulsive. Therefore, you decided to stop mentioning it after taking into consideration their clans. But just because you no longer mention it does not mean they no longer think about it.”
“You wanted to cause chaos in Great Zhao in order to stir up trouble in the Continent Center because of the fight for power between the kingdoms. However, Ji Mo and the rest did this because they wanted to create a storm of chaos during this training period of the clans from the Middle Three Heavens.”
Chu Yang suddenly understood.
“Therefore, if you wanted to deal with Mo Tian Yun, It is much easier to do so now. Moreover, in this chaos, even if Mo Tian Yun were to perish, it is likely that no one would suspect you… After all, the King of Hell Chu is currently in Iron Cloud.”
“This is also the last thing the brothers could do for you before leaving.” Gu Du Xing said quietly, “While they did not say anything before, but since they are doing it, they will do it to the best of their abilities for you! Otherwise, they would not feel comfortable leaving.”
“Chu Yang, since the day the six of us truly saw each other as brothers, we have the world’s greatest wealth… It is the power of a clan comparable to about half of the Middle Three Heavens! Perhaps they have thought of this or perhaps they have yet to recognize it. But in a couple of years from now… This glory will be within reach!”
“Therefore, it is my guess that the commotion surrounding the Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber are just getting started!” Gu Du Xing said quietly.
Chu Yang’s heart was filled with warmth. The words of Gu Du Xing had stirred his mind. He slowly walked towards the window and looked at the night sky for a long time. After which he let out a soft sigh, “Such brothers and such friendship… How can it be simply forgotten! Others are faithful to me and I am them. Du Xing, the future of us brothers will not just remain or be in the Middle Three Heavens.”
Gu Du Xing smiled faintly. He seemed to understand Chu Yang’s thoughts and said, “Chu Yang, no matter what you do, don’t be hasty. When you dealt with Diwu Qing Rou, you calculated and thought of every possible situation and result. However, with this Mo Tian Yun’s situation, you seem a little hasty.”
“Hmm.” How could Chu Yang not know? The moment he thought about Mo Qing Wu’s situation, he could not hold anything back!
“Moreover, on this trip to Great Zhao, we need identities.” Gu Du Xing went over to Chu Yang and looked at the white snow falling from the sky in the night with him, “We have to join in this chaos!”
“Don’t worry, I have already prepared for this…” Chu Yang smiled and said, “Right now, we just need to fight and join in the competition for the saber and sword!”
“Great!” Gu Du Xing’s eyes brightened.
All the two of them needed to do was to join in the fight and create fame for themselves. After which, they could create a name for themselves. That way, not only could they cause even more confusion, they would also be able to eliminate any sort of suspicion towards the King of Hell Chu.
If all of this was King of Hell Chu’s scheme; who would have thought that King of Hell Chu, himself, would join in the competition?
“Let’s go!” Chu Yang pushed his feet and flew out of the window. Gu Du Xing’s body floated like the wind and followed Chu Yang closely. The two black figures blended in with the shadows of the night.
Dong Wu Shang held “Ask the Heavens Sword” in his hand and killed in all four directions. At first, he was not comfortable with using the sword to fight for a long time. However, now that he was starting to get used to it, he gained many insights.
In addition to that, his own martial skill was becoming more refined during this prolonged period of fighting. There was even a faint sense that he might unexpectedly break through ninth grade Saber Great Master!
This had greatly surprised Dong Wu Shang. During this time, he had continued to only use the sword! How was it possible for his way of the saber advance so quickly?
However, doubts were only doubts. He couldn’t let go of such an opportunity of being able to receive this enlightenment!
His thoughts flashed across his mind and he continued to swing his arms without rest as he roared, “Only a few of you and you want to fight for my Ask the Heavens Sword?! Do you think you are worthy?”
His sword aura suddenly changed; a shocking light flashed in the night. The clanking sounds continued to ring out. All of the weapons which were aimed at him from all four different directions were sliced. About seven or eight people backed up in terror. Everyone around had a fiery look in their eyes!
Ask the Heavens Sword! This was definitely a legendary heavenly weapon of the ages!
One swing of this divine weapon had cut up more than ten weapons, and the blade was not the least damaged. If only they could open that saintly imprint…
Everyone screamed loudly, “Leave the sword!”
The whole bunch was filled with excitement as they rushed in chaotically.
Dong Wu Shang’s countenance was cold. The sword swung up; suddenly, it drew a large flower as it greeted all of the attacks without any avoidance.
The surroundings around Dong Wu Shang clanked relentlessly as he yelled out, “Your grandfather will leave you now!” He was surprisingly arrogant as he abruptly cut a path through the crowd. His figure flashed as he brought a trial of blood right to the rooftop at the speed of light.
Everyone was anxious and angry as they roared in pursuit.
Dong Wu Shang ran like the wind; he pulled up clouds of dust as he raced all over the citadel. He also intentionally showed off the sword to broadcast to others that the Ask the Heavens Sword was here.
“Huh? Is this not Ask the Heavens Sword?”
He continued running around like a crazed person. Previously, only ten people were chasing him. However, this number had now become over a few hundred people. However, second young master Dong continued to become more enthusiastic. He could feel his fighting spirit rising with every moment. The saber aura inside him grew large and became excited! It was breaking through!
“Ah…” Dong Wu Shang looked up and yelled out. His body suddenly shot up. In the moment of extreme excitement, he unexpectedly pushed strong enough to jump more than a hundred feet up into the sky!
His arm raised the sword straight up to the heavens! Energy flooded into the sword blade like a tide. The sword shined in the sky like a little blinding sun!
This blinding light was visible beyond a hundred feet radius. Screams continually rang out as waves of people poured towards him.
But the moment they moved, they halted in shock!
It was because Dong Wu Shang let out a fierce roar in midair. Suddenly, a powerful aura exploded! For a moment, his body also paused in the air!
Ninth grade Saber Great Master breakthrough!
He actually broke through at that very moment!
Dong Wu Shang suddenly roared in midair, “Your grandfather broke through again! Woah hahaha… Ask the Heavens Sword is indeed a heavenly weapon!”
Thousands of Jiang Hu people witnessed this magical scene and their eyes reddened momentarily with extreme jealousy… This was the power of the Ask the Heavens Sword! He was able to even break through while fighting…
How terrifying was this?
The people below became even more crazed!
