Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 269 The Heirs Of Middle Three Heaven
The person on the left looked slightly older and had a more menacing aura. A sword hung on his waist, but it did not seem cumbersome at all. It was as if the sword was one with his body. It was completely natural!
The person on the right was younger, but he remained indifferent. His gaze was aloof and impartial, as if nothing seems to be bothering him. An awe-inspiring aura emanated around him.
He was carrying an ancient sword scabbard that hung diagonally behind his back. The only part of the sword hilt could be seen above his shoulder. Surprisingly, the tassel on that sword was also white!
The two elegant white figures stepped from the dirt path onto the white rug without a care. Two prominent trails of muddy footprints followed behind them.
After a few steps, they suddenly paused on the white rug.
The two men looked up and gazed at the Heaven Reaching Tower.
Du Fa Cai stuck out his stomach and bounded towards them. He bowed respectfully, till his body was parallel to the ground. His hands were holding tightly onto his thigh. Given how round his belly was, bowing to such a degree was extremely difficult! Yet, unbelievably, he performed this act perfectly.
“Young masters Chu! Welcome! Welcome…” Du Fa Cai gushed with a huge beam. Right at that moment, if there was a tail on his butt, it would have been wagging furiously.
“Big brother, this Heaven Reaching Tower is very well-prepared.” This younger master stated his appreciation. He smiled softly as he looked at the white rug below them with admiration.
“It’s acceptable.” The older young man nodded coolly and said, “I am somewhat satisfied with the feeling of walking on the rug.”
The edge of Du Fa Cai’s eyes twitched involuntarily. He sneered to himself: This priceless Snow Mink rug was rolled out to welcome you and all you can say is you feel somewhat satisfied with it?!
“Two sirs, the inn has prepared the best guest room for you. Everything inside is also brand new. Please, come in and rest. It is snowy and cold outside…” The fats on Du Fa Cai’s face wobbled as he smiled brightly.
“Hmm, okay. Lead the way.” commanded the older young master. He clasped his hands behind his back and continued walking. His fluttering white robe did not even seem to touch the ground.
Once they reached the door, two rows of neatly dressed large men bowed simultaneously, “Welcome, young masters!”
The two young masters nodded with a satisfied smile. Their attitude was much warmer than that of other aristocrats when dealing with these lowly servants,.
As they smiled, everyone in the two rows of large men felt something in their hands. Looking down, each person noticed that there were two banknotes in their hands. Each one was… five hundred taels.
And there were two such banknotes…
Only this little action was enough for the men in ceremony to love the two young masters from the bottom of their hearts.
Such an action by the two young masters had won over all of the hearts of the two rows of men.
One banknote normally implies that it was just a reward. But two notes show a matter of respect. Being a pair, they also imply good wishes. And the fact that everyone had two five hundred tael notes proved that these two young masters did not forget about lowly people like them. This spoke to their habits.
And such habits made it easy for people to respect and love them sincerely from the bottom of their hearts.
These people were born royals!
Du Fa Cai was following behind them, constantly fearing any potential flaw. As he walked, his waist never straightened, and his head never looked up. A bright smile remained on his face.
The two young masters walked into Heaven Reaching Tower with Du Fa Cai.
Mo Tian Yun was standing in front of the window with a frown. He mused to himself, “Who are these two people?”
Soft footsteps rang out in the hallway as the two honored guests reached the fifth floor. They were able to hear the voice of the younger master laughing and talking, “Boss Du, we have really troubled you. You have prepared everything so meticulously.”
Du Fa Cai immediately replied with a sickly sweet voice, so sweet that one could imagine how brightly he was smiling, “No, no. As long as the young masters are happy, this little person feels reassured. Haha…”
Mo Tian Yun’s eyes twitched slightly. Young masters, little person… Given Du Fa Cai’s position, he is actually calling himself a little person in front of these two people?
Mo Tian Yun walked out of his door and slowly proceeded into the common room of the fourth floor. He knew that all of the heirs must be present at this time.
He immediately noticed that that was indeed the case the moment he walked in.
Be it opponents or allies, all of them were seated at a table as they conversed with one another.
Two brothers Gu Yan Yang and Gu Yan Yue had a table to themselves, Luo Ke Wu and Liu Sui Feng was seated at another table and Dong Wu Lei from the Dong clan took a table to himself. Ji Zhu, the young master of the Ji clan, was slouched on a table.
Every time he looked at Ji Zhu, Mo Tian Yun felt disgusted. This guy was his cousin and he was only three months younger than Mo Tian Yun. But only god knows the extent of this guy’s laziness.
Ji Zhu had set a name for himself. When everyone was training at Cang Lang battlefront, young master Ji’s followers got injured and needed three months to recuperate. Since young master Ji did not bring any maids with him, he did not wash his clothes for three months.
He changed clothes every day and tossed the dirty clothes at the head of his bed. Once, when Mo Tian Yun went to search for Ji Zhu, he found the young master naked and tossing things all over his bed. He was searching for clothes to wear.
He had a unique method of finding clothes to wear. All the clothes had already been worn and had not been washed. The young master Ji would grab one shirt and sniffed it. He would then grab another shirt for a sniff… to compare which one of them smells the least.
As soon as he witnessed such a scene, Mo Tian Yun almost collapsed on the spot. Ever since then, he had never looked for this cousin again. He vowed to himself to never travel in a group with Ji Zhu ever again.
In the common room, there were more than ten big tables, but they were all occupied. Mo Tian Yun walked in and two martial experts of the Mo clan immediately stood up to clear a spot for him.
Luo Ke Wu was yelling, “Who would dare to make a bet with me about the identity of those two young men? I am willing to bet ten thousand taels!”
Gu Yan Yang laughed and sneered, “Ten thousand taels? Are you a beggar?”
Ji Zhu slouched lazily on the table, his face resting on it. He only bothered to raise an arm and said, “I’m in. If I lose, I will not bathe for a month.”
Luo Ke Wu snickered contemptuously, “Isn’t that your dream? Wouldn’t you do that even if you didn’t lose? Isn’t that just too shameless?”
Mo Tian Yun grinned as he observed everyone around him. He was seeing many of them for the very first time. And he could not differentiate whether they were friends of foes. These young masters from great clans had never gathered together like they did in this common room. What was more surprising was that they were not in some sort of earth-shattering battle.
This kind of phenomenon was rare, even in Middle Three Heavens.
Everyone was feeling jittery. Only Dong Wu Lei and Ji Zhu maintained their same old attitude. Everyone else was more or less reserved.
“What is your bet?” Mo Tian Yun tilted his head and looked up at Luo Ke Wu.
“I am betting that these people belong to a clan of Upper Three Heavens! If it is not one of the nine great clans, then it should be one of the big clans!” Luo Ke Wu announced loudly.
“You are just bullshitting!” Mo Tian Yun said condescendingly, “No one here is blind. Everyone would see through you lire. Why would they want to bet with you? Aren’t you just scamming their money?”
Luo Ke Wu’s face reddened from embarrassment. It quickly turned into anger as he said, “What has it got to do with you?”
“Gibberish!” Mo Tian Yun grunted icily.
A pungent smell suddenly filled the air. The young masters grimaced as they tried to hold in their breath.
Immediately, Gu Yan Yang hollered angrily, “Bastard! Put your shoes back on!”
Everyone followed his gaze and immediately became angry and amused at the same time. Apparently, Ji Zhu had taken off his shoes and was scratching his feet with a chopstick on the table…
This stench that was emanating from his feet… that had not been washed for who knows how many days…
Gu Yan Yang’s table was beside Ji Zhu so they were suffering the most.
“I am just scratching my feet. What are you fussing about?” Ji Zhu was indifferent to anything as he continued to scratch. He did not look like a young master of a great clan but more like a thug.
After scratching for a while, he suddenly brought up the chopstick to his nose and sniffed it several times. He then sighed and said, “The aroma is getting stronger…”
Everyone heaved and gagged. They could feel their stomachs churning with nausea.
Dong Wu Lei quietly stood up. He immediately grabbed Ji Zhu’s neck and punched his face. Dong Wu Lei did not say anything, but he was the first one to make a move.
Ji Zhu cried out painfully as he defended himself.
The other young masters immediately formed a circle around him as they cheered on excitedly. The atmosphere was extremely lively.
“That’s enough!” Mo Tian Yun frowned and sighed in annoyance, “Ji Zhu, what kind of appearance is this? And right in front of everyone. Don’t you know what shame is?”
“If my second brother had not disappear so suddenly, you think I would want to follow you people?” Ji Zhu stood up grumpily. He rolled his eyes and put on his shoes, “I can’t help it. It just… itches too much. What can I do?”
“Alright! Let’s discuss those two people from earlier.” Mo Tian Yun frowned and said, “Some of us do not know each other and some of us are enemies. But I should remind you all of one thing. This trip to Lower Three Heavens is for training, and the purpose of training is Nine Tribulations Sword master!”
As soon as he brought up Nine Tribulations Sword, everyone fell silent.
“Those two people carried themselves with a certain class. Clearly, they come from great clans. And from their auras, we can recognize that they are two swordsmen! Although I do not know their cultivation level… Being swordsmen at such a young age is not possible even in great clans of our Middle Three Heavens!”
“In such a critical time like this, the sudden appearance of two such people…” By then, Mo Tian Yun had successfully guided everyone’s thought, “I do not believe that this has nothing to do with the appearance of Nine Tribulations Sword.”
“If it is related to Nine Tribulations Sword master, it means that they are our opponents. And they are powerful opponents.” What Mo Tian Yun said could not be denied by anyone, even by the opposing clans.
“Therefore… we should not take them lightly.” Mo Tian Yun said gravely, “I just want to remind everyone of that.”
Mo Tian Yun understood why he felt a strong sense of danger the moment those two young men appeared! It was as if these two young men were his fated mortal enemies!
Such a feeling was irrational, but its existence was very prominent!
In addition, Mo Tian Yun felt an even greater sense of danger compared to the one towards his younger brother, Mo Tian Ji! Mo Tian Yun always trusted his gut feelings!
Hence, the first thing that Mo Tian Yun did was to utilise Nine Tribulations Sword to unify all of the young masters here as soon as he could.
They should all fight against a common enemy!
Even though they were a divided alliance, they were still the descendants of great clans. Even if they did not say or do anything, as long as they stood on the same ground, they would be a powerful deterrent!
Even though Mo Tian Yun did not mention it, everyone was thinking of this particular point. They were all elite members of great clans. Although some might have acted like fools and some might have acted like playboys, none of them was actually an idiot.
Even Ji Zhu, with his extremely filthy character, was not looked down by anyone, including Mo Tian Yun.
“Mo Tian Yun, those two people… what kind of grudges do you have against them?” questioned one person in a faint voice. It was evident that the question clearly meant: Why are you behaving like this? The moment we saw these people, we wanted to be their ally. Such an innate feeling is not something that could be taught. If they are from Middle Three Heavens, it would be impossible to not know of them. Lower Three Heavens definitely do not have people of such caliber… It could only be Upper Three Heavens. But if it is Upper Three Heavens… Why are you, Mo Tian Yun, getting so anxious for?
The faint voice came from young man that was seated at a table in the center. He was wearing white clothes with sharp sword brows. His gaze was indifferent, yet it seemed to flash dangerously.
It seemed as if his temperament could change at any time. It could be dark at one moment, quiet the next, cruel…
In short, anyone who looked at him would certainly feel that there was something evil about this person.
Mo Tian Yun tensed up, but his countenance remained impartial. He smiled and said, “Brother Ao, you and I bear no grudges in the past and no hatred recently. Why are you being hateful toward me? What you are saying is a little hard to understand. I only intend to remind people. Why does Brother Ao compare a gentleman’s heart with that of a villain?”
This person was someone Mo Tian Yun had wanted to avoid the most among all of the youths of Middle Three Heavens’ great clans! Even Mo Tian Ji and Dong Wu Lei were not as bad as him.
It was Evil Young Master, Ao Xie Yun!
Out of all the current young men of Middle Three Heavens, young master Ao was someone that was worthy of becoming a leader! People from all the clans hated him to the core. They wanted to get rid of him. Some were jealous of him and they hated the fact that they were unable to replace him. Others avoided him the moment they saw him. But no one could say that they didn’t recognize who he was.
He was an extremely capable person.
Even the brothers Mo Tian Yun and Mo Tian Ji were greatly dominated by Ao Xie Yun!
“Comparing a gentleman’s heart with that of a villain? Haha. Gentleman…” Ao Xie Yun laughed mockingly, “You had every intention to kill your own younger brother and you even want to harm your younger sister… Mo Tian Yun, are you really a gentleman?”
