Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 273 Ancient Wonder; Sun And Moon Shine Together!
On this night, Continent Center Citadel remained chaotic. However, Ask the Heavens Sword was nowhere to be seen, while Underworld Saber did not appear.
Although they did not surface, the Jiang Hu crowd never ceased competing for them. By now, many descendants of Ask the Heavens Sword Saint and Underworld Saber Saint had died for no good reason.
Unbeknownst to everyone, there were many masked people in black moving around mysteriously. They moved quietly in the background, even though their martial skills were powerful enough to scare people out of their wits.
They simply came and remained stealthy, hiding from the rest. As they stood in the middle of the city, they watched over the potential areas where Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber might appear carefully.
On this night, there was not a cloud for thousands of miles. This caused the moon to shine exceptionally bright, even though it was not a full moon.
In a secret corner, under the protection of the night, Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber met in secrecy.
Under the moonlight, Dong Wu Shang, Luo Ke Di, Ji Mo, and Rui Bu Tong sat on a large pine quietly. They resembled four little squirrels that had gathered for a meeting.
“Have you made your decision?” Dong Wu Shang asked in a serious manner.
“Hmm.” Ji Mo nodded solemnly.
“If we do that, our clans will most probably be roped into the situation as well.” Dong Wu Shang replied; his face appeared emotionless.
“So what?” Ji Mo’s face no longer had the usual look of cynicism. In fact, it appeared slightly pensive, “With the appearance of Nine Tribulations Sword, it would only be a matter of time before Middle Three Heavens gets cleansed. It wouldn’t matter if the Ji clan falls before this storm hits them. However, if the Ji clan could seize this opportunity to take a step forward instead, I will be very excited.”
Up until he said this, Ji Mo’s countenance appeared serious. Suddenly, a look of disdain surfaced on his face, “Moreover, my beloved elder brother is the leader of this training event. Cough cough… I doubt that he would even open his eyes to look once everything has been confirmed, with the saber and the sword placed in front of his very eyes…”
Luo Ke Di and Rui Bu Tong’s shoulders shook vigorously. Dong Wu Sheng nearly burst out laughing. He held back his laughter and said, “That’s right, your elder brother is truly one of a kind in all the history of Middle Three Heavens…”
“Such nice praises, yet all I can do is to keep my eyes open and watch from the sidelines.” Ji Mo sighed heavily, “Although I know that you guys are speaking the truth, it’s still difficult to take it all in.”
“What I find strangest is… how could your Ji clan allow your elder brother to assume the rank of eldest young master? Even stranger is the fact that your lazy elder brother… actually cultivated to such a high level… Worse still, why do I care about all these…?” Luo Ke Di frowned as he expressed his opinion. His countenance displayed a look that made it seem like he was discussing a certain academic issue.
“What you should really find strange is why your open mouth is like a wastebasket. Even when it’s closed, the stench still manages to leak out somehow!” Ji Mo glared at Luo Ke Di as he exclaimed furiously.
Rui Bu Tong let out an ‘ah’ and laughed uncontrollably. He rolled off the tree and scrambled to crawl back up immediately after. He had hit his head on the tree trunk, but he continued laughing silently as a pained look appeared on his face.
Meanwhile, Dong Wu Shang felt extremely helpless.
He was stuck with these punks; having a serious discussion about anything with them was simply impossible.
“Don’t worry. Your Dong clan will be fine. Your elder brother, Dong Wu Lei, is someone with great self-control. Besides… based on what I know, your elder brother has superior strength. There’s no need for you to worry… ” Ji Mo comforted Dong Wu Shang as he noticed that he appeared helpless.
“But… that is definitely not that case for my elder brother.” Luo Ke Di frowned and sighed simultaneously, “That bastard Luo Ke Wu might appear cool on the outside, but trust me that it’s all a facade. His temper is beyond anyone’s imagination. Once he goes crazy, there is nothing that he won’t do.”
“Wouldn’t you be around?” Ji Mo looked at Luo Ke Di in disdain, “At a certain key moment, couldn’t you just alert him?”
“Alert him? What if alerting him ruins big brother’s grand plan? Wouldn’t you guys be chasing after me for my skin?” Luo Ke Di cried out helplessly.
“You can make your own decision!” Dong Wu Shang asserted, “However, Gu Du Xing’s Gu clan will definitely suffer a huge loss this time around. Mo Tian Yun would definitely place them at the front of the fire. Furthermore, those two brothers, Gu Yan Yang and Gu Yan Yue, are overly-ambitious and extremely narrow-minded. They are also stuck in a power struggle at this present moment…”
“That is the Gu clan’s problem and for Second Brother Gu to worry about. There’s no need for us to bother thinking about it.” The three others said in unison, “Besides, we have been extremely annoyed by Gu Yan Yang and Gu Yan Yue. If we’re able to cause those two bastards to encounter some sort of trouble… Gu Du Xing might become extremely happy and not shed a single tear.”
“The truth is, Gu Du Xing would love to chop off the heads of those two himself.”
“If that’s indeed the case, then let’s get ready.” Ji Mo looked up at the sky and said, “Round moon, our opportunity is here.”
Dong Wu Shang nodded solemnly.
All of a sudden, Luo Ke Di appeared to have thought of something. He hugged his stomach and laughed uncontrollably, trying his best to keep silent. Tears began to stream out of his eyes.
“What are you thinking about?” Dong Wu Shang asked for he was extremely annoyed by Luo Ke Di’s peculiar behavior. This punk looked like he had some serious mental issues.
“I just thought of the names that the two of you Dong brothers have… Mother… Awoo…” Luo Ke Di held onto his stomach, desperate for a gasp of air.
Immediately, Dong Wu Shang became curious, “What’s so funny about our names?”
“You and your elder brother, Dong Wu Lei… Hahaha…” Luo Ke Di burst out laughing with his mouth wide open. The three others could clearly see Luo Ke Di’s tongue shaking vigorously…
“What is it?” Ji Mo scratched his head, puzzled.
“Listen to this… Dong Wu Lei; animal kind. Awoo…” Luo Ke Di could not control his laughter, “As for Dong Wu Shang, it’s even more meaningful. Animal king… Ah, Dong Wu Shang, you, you… Even animals place you above them…”
Before he could even finish, Dong Wu Shang had punched him in the face. Immediately, Luo Ke Di’s laughter came to a stop. His face turned blue-black as he fell off the tree.
Dong Wu Shang’s face was filled with intense killing intents as he turned to look at Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong. They really wanted to burst out laughing as well, but could not. Dong Wu Shang gritted his teeth in anger and asked, “Was that very funny?”
“Not funny, not funny at all!” Ji Mo shook his head like a rattle drum, “I did not understand anything that Luo Ke Di has just said.”
Meanwhile, Rui Bu Tong nodded his head continually, resembling that of a pecking chicken, “Yes, yes. I did not understand one thing at all.”
“Hmm!” Dong Wu Shang’s head was popping with veins as he yelled, “Leave!”
Swiftly, Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong climbed down the big tree, with sweat on their heads. They ran into the darkness of the night. From a distance, Ji Mo could be heard laughing hysterically and saying, “Animal kind, animal king… Haha, motherf*cker, second young master Luo is truly talented. A real scholar…”
Meanwhile, Rui Bu Tong’s howling could be heard as well, “Hahaha…”
Dong Wu Shang held his fist so tightly that a loud cracking sound was emitted from his knuckles. However, Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong had disappeared long ago…
Immediately, Dong Wu Shang jumped down from the tree and grabbed Luo Ke Di, just as he was in an attempt to escape. As expected, Luo Ke Di was given a thorough beating!
“I was wrong! Fourth brother, I was wrong. Beloved fourth brother… I was wrong… Oh, oh, big fourth brother is so magnanimous… Hahaha, awoo, it’s too funny…” Luo Ke Di howled in pain as he begged for mercy, while still laughing occasionally at the same time. At that moment, it seemed unclear as to whether he was still excited or in pain. His whole body shook so much that no one could discern if he was laughing or being beaten up…
On the other hand, Dong Wu Shang enjoyed giving people merciless beatings. Each punch was sincere to the bone…
Gradually, the moonlight rose to the top. There was a slight dent in its shining brightness, but it remained shining in the night sky.
All of a sudden, from an unknown place within Continent Center Citadel, a beam of light created a bright round shape that radiated like the sun, shining blindingly in the night sky!
However, this beam was not that large; it was only about the size of a fist. Nonetheless, it appeared extremely concentrated and intense. Furthermore, it captured everyone’s attention since it was late at night.
Within mere moments, countless travelers noticed this strange phenomenon that was occurring in the sky. They could not help but look up and stare at the sky in great awe.
Immediately after, a change occurred. Another beam had just shot straight into the sky. In a flash, the sky had become peaceful. It seemed as if there were a total of one sun and two moons in the sky.
A waxing moon and a full moon!
In the silence of the night, two piercing screams came from two different directions!
Thereafter, the two beams disappeared.
There was only one moon left in the sky.
There was complete silence throughout the entire place.
However, that strange scene had already been imprinted in everyone’s eyes. Almost everyone was astounded and asked, “What has just happened?”
Concurrently, two white figures appeared suddenly! Under the moonlight, the white figures seemed even more mystical. It was as if they were immortals flying down from heaven!
While they were in midair, the two figures did not utter a word. Shortly after, they split into two different directions. Each figure was carrying along with him a sharp and terrifying sword aura as they moved like lightning, heading towards the two directions where the two light beams had just appeared.
Surprisingly, these two majestic looking young men with jade-like appearance were actually swordsmen!
Their white figures flashed before they vanished in the blink of an eye! Heaven and earth returned to its silence as well!
While this was happening, dozens of black figures that moved quicker than these two figures shot towards the same two directions as well. In the cold night, the sounds of sleeves tearing through the air rang out endlessly.
Dozens of majestic golden crowns had suddenly appeared in the middle of the night! All of the people in Jiang Hu watched this scene and shivered in fear!
This stage clearly belonged solely to martial experts!
At this point, whether they wanted to or not, the ordinary people had to retreat!
There were dozens of King level masters!
Motherf*cker… what has just happened?
Chu Yang’s figure was like a thunderbolt as it turned into a white streak in the air. His face was showing a look of urgency and determination to reach his goal.
However, by the time he landed, three King level masters in black had already appeared.
Even though his speed was fast, it was still nowhere as fast as the speed of the King level masters.
Chu Yang glanced around before he slowly changed back to his graceful demeanor. His fluttering white outfit shined brightly in front of the three people who were dressed in black.
“The speed of you three seniors is truly fast.” Chu Yang said gently, with a hint of shyness of youth. He continued slowly, “Even though I had used all of my strength and even had a head start, I still fell behind.”
“Young Master Chu is too kind.” The three masked people in black did not dare to be impolite, especially after hearing such a comment.
“Hmm, may I enquire if the three seniors have discovered anything upon arriving here first?” Chu Yang asked sincerely.
“May I know what Young Master Chu means by the word ‘discover’?” One of the King level masters rolled his eyes back as he asked.
