Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 275 Beyond The Heavens Sect Is Not Doing Well!
Meanwhile, in another room, Ao Xie Yun had suddenly come to, “Saber sword madman?”
Beside him, the eyes of the three King level masters had lit up as they were astounded.
“Sun and moon shining together; saint in both saber and sword!” Ao Xie Yun took in a deep breath, “If this is true, then… this is definitely not a small matter!”
Without waiting for the three King level masters to voice their own opinions, he quickly waved his arm and said, “However, we still have to remain cautious before this information is verified! We absolutely cannot let our intention be exposed!” He held back his excitement and continued, “That Young Master Chu is probably not being honest with us. Given his character, he was most likely trying to get information from us. Worse still, he could have been trying to bait us into his trap.”
“We can’t afford to make a wrong move.” Ao Xie Yun said cautiously, “None of you should get overly excited or become impulsive. As the situation develops, you must be even more careful in every action of yours – your movement, words, and even your coughs! You must think clearly before making any move, even every step that you take! Understood?”
“If they are not Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword of saber sword madman, this whole thing would then be a conspiracy that is aimed directly at the great clans of Middle Three Heavens! If that’s the case, we absolutely cannot allow such a conspiracy to achieve its aims!”
Ao Xie Yun paced back and forth slowly. His voice became calmer as he said in a low voice, “If they are indeed Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword from saber sword madman… this place will turn into a battlefield! Once we get involved, we will not be able to get out of it even if we wanted to. We may even implicate the clan in Middle Three Heavens, causing everything to be destroyed in just a short span of time! Nonetheless, this is a rare opportunity that only comes every few thousand years!”
“Be careful, be very careful! To the… maximum!” Ao Xie Yun took a deep breath. A sharp light flashed from within his eyes, “Whether this is a real or fake news, it is still a game of chess! Besides, we still have no clue as to who is behind this ploy. Such an opponent is surely worthy of all my efforts!”
In the other room, Mo Tian Yun came out of his deep contemplation. He frowned and expressed in a low but determined voice, “If it’s true that the sun and moon shined together, they are surely Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword from saber sword madman. Back in the day, saber sword madman had fought with the Martial Expert from Heavenly Three Star Clan and never returned! His two extraordinary heavenly weapons had vanished along with him…”
“According to the legends, if the two heavenly weapons, Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword, were to come together as one, they would create a worldly phenomenon. If they’re separate from each other, they’re just two ordinary blades. However, if they two heavenly weapons meet, the secret power of Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword would be revealed, making them invincible! Saber sword madman was able to reach Saint level in both saber and sword because of Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword!”
“If we are able to get our hands on Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword, my position in the Mo clan would not be disturbed by ten thousand of Mo Tian Ji! Furthermore, the Mo clan could potentially become the champion in Middle Three Heavens and proceed to Upper Three Heavens to fight for the position of one of the nine great clans!”
The more he thought about this, the more Mo Tian Yun became excited.
“However, we must be extremely careful and not do anything rashly.” Mo Tian Yun murmured. Gradually, a determined look appeared in his calm gaze, “If there is going to be a fight, our opponents are none other than the Black Saber and Ao clans… The rest are not worthy of us!”
In any case, he was remarkably different from Ao Xie Yun.
Amongst the Ao clan, Ao Xie Yun had already been identified as the successor. His position was already fortified, hence allowing him to remain calm and clear-headed in face of such a tempting opportunity. He had cautiously weighed all the pros and cons while thinking of how to deal with such opportunities.
However, while Mo Tian Yun might be the eldest young master presently, his position was still not fortified. He had a younger brother, Mo Tian Ji, who was nowhere inferior to him in strength or in intelligence. Mo Tian Ji was silently watching his every action and could replace him at any moment possible…
Based on this, the two were completely different people.
Even though other great clans were having their own discussions as well, their durations were extremely short in comparison!
Besides, the heirs of those clans had already made their decisions.
On the other hand, the two people who were expected to make their decisions first, Ao Xie Yun and Mo Tian Yun, ended up being the ones who pondered over the situation for the longest period of time.
Mo Tian Yun thought over and over again, but he could not make a firm decision about the situation. Similarly, Ao Xie Yun thought continuously, but was also unable to make a decision…
Nevertheless, there was one thing in common that the two felt towards: Once the fighting begins, the two great clans at the frontline of this battle would be theirs. Ultimately, their two clans would be colliding head-on.
Each young master of the great clans had his own ulterior motive!
Ah, the previous statement was a mistake. There was one young master without an ulterior motive and this was none other than the eldest young master of the Ji clan, Ji Zhu!
At this present moment, this young master was deep in sleep and snoring loudly; he did not pay any attention to the King level master from his clan who was frowning and feeling extremely uneasy…
Not long after Chu Yang returned, Gu Du Xing entered the room through the window.
“Well?” Gu Du Xing asked.
“Almost done.” Chu Yang said, “But… the situation is far from reaching the point of madness. It seems that another appearance has to be made.”
“Okay.” Gu Du Xing said, “But… only one can make an appearance the next time. The two cannot appear at the same time; it would cause too much commotion. It would be best to make an appearance in the name of Ask the Heavens Sword or Underworld Saber.”
“Of course.” Chu Yang smiled in a mysterious manner.
“This next location will be the ultimate one; have you picked one out yet?”
“I’m still thinking. I’ve narrowed it down to the royal palace or the imperial tomb!” Chu Yang gasped as he said this, “Or… the headquarter of Golden Horse Riders Department?”
“Royal palace, imperial tomb… Golden Horse Riders Department?” Gu Du Xing took in a deep breath as he was astonished.
The heart of boss Chu is a little too ruthless… Gu Du Xing imagined that if they were successful at any of those places, Great Zhao would be in more than just a normal state of chaos. The entire nation would definitely be suffering a great catastrophe!
On this very same night, Wu Yun Liang had led over three hundred remaining people of Beyond the Heavens Sect to Iron Cloud Citadel!
Wu Yun Liang had been to Iron Cloud Citadel countless times to have many secret conversations with Tie Bu Tian. However, Tie Bu Tian’s attitude was always reserved and distant each time they conversed.
Back then, Tie Bu Tian was still just a prince!
However, on this trip to Iron Cloud, it was late at night, and Tie Bu Tian was now the emperor of a nation! Unexpectedly, he had come down to welcome them personally. This gave Wu Yun Liang a great deal of face and made the people of Beyond the Heavens Sect feel a certain kind of glory, that their leader was treasured.
After exchanging pleasantries and greetings, they were brought into the citadel. Tie Bu Tian looked around for a moment before finally asking Wu Yun Liang in a low voice, “Sect master Wu, may I know where the honorable Senior Meng might be?”
Wu Yun Liang smiled lightly and replied, “Junior martial brother has already left Lower Three Heavens and entered Middle Three Heavens.”
Tie Bu Tian sighed heavily and said dejectedly, “It appears that Senior Meng has no intentions of staying.”
“Yes. He mentioned that by remaining in Lower Three Heavens, he would eventually become Diwu Qing Rou’s means to deal with his disciple…” Wu Yun Liang sighed softly, “Junior brother is prideful and loves his two disciples to the core. How could he ever allow himself to drag them down? Hence, he decided to leave!”
Tie Bu Tian sighed heavily again.
He felt as if he had experienced a great loss. He had planned to meet Chu Yang’s master and junior martial brother to understand and see for himself what kind of master was able to train such an exceptional disciple. He would never have thought that Meng Chao Ran had already left.
Moreover, he had left without any hint of hesitation.
“May I ask, Your Majesty, now that all of us from Beyond the Heavens Sect are here, what do you have planned for us?” Wu Yun Liang asked sincerely.
Initially, he had not planned to ask such a question. However, after having seen Tie Bu Tian’s extreme hospitality, Wu Yun Liang decided to pop the question.
Tie Bu Tian’s countenance became calm again and he replied casually, “Beyond the Heavens Sect would, of course, remain as Beyond the Heavens Sect. Its strength would not be dispersed, and neither would it be integrated with any other sect. It shall remain on its own. What does sect master Wu think of this?”
“Oh… but, but…”
Wu Yun Liang was slightly dumbfounded. He had planned for Beyond the Heavens Sect to integrate with Bu Tian Pavilion. After all, Chu Yang and Wu Qian Qian were at Bu Tian Pavilion. Essentially, it could be said that they were in positions of great power. Bu Tian Pavilion and Beyond the Heavens Sect could be said to have some really close ties…
However, Tie Bu Tian’s words had just shattered his dream. Furthermore, Tie Bu Tian’s countenance becoming cold was enough to signal to him that there was no need to discuss this matter any further!
As he thought about this, Wu Yun Liang could not help but laugh to himself: Tie Bu Tian did not come to welcome me. He clearly came to welcome Meng Chao Ran! It is undeniable that he clearly respects King of Hell Chu. As for me, the master of Beyond the Heavens Sect… cough, cough, I’m definitely not worth him mentioning at all…
After the people of Beyond the Heavens Sect were properly settled in, Tie Bu Tian instructed some of his officials to stay behind to entertain his guests while he returned to his palace.
A while later, Wu Qian Qian was escorted to where they had settled.
“That will not do!” Wu Qian Qian shook her head firmly, “Chu Yang has mentioned that anyone may join Bu Tian Pavilion, but Beyond the Heavens Sect absolutely cannot!”
“Why?” Wu Yun Liang was somewhat taken aback. He was fine with having just a few people join Bu Tian Pavilion. He would never have imagined that Chu Yang would completely disallow this desire of his.
“If Beyond the Heavens Sect wishes to continue to exist in Iron Cloud and thrive, it cannot enter any of its politics, let alone Bu Tian Pavilion!” Wu Qian Qian replied assertively, “These were Chu Yang’s very words. He knew that if you brought people here, you would want them to enter Bu Tian Pavilion or gain a certain position of power. He had instructed me to inform you that you should not think of such ideas anymore!”
“Chu Yang once told me that if you do that, Beyond the Heavens Sect would be fine when Iron Cloud is in danger. However, once Iron Cloud is no longer in danger, Beyond the Heavens Sect would be destroyed by the hands of Tie Bu Tian!”
“No ruler would allow his officials to join forces with martial sects! Any wise ruler would never allow this to happen!”
“If Beyond the Heavens Sect is not destroyed by being used by Diwu Qing Rou, but instead destroyed by the blade of the very person that it has sworn allegiance to, that would really be the greatest tragedy of all time!”
“Those were Chu yang’s exact words.” Wu Qian Qian continued, “I think that his words make a lot of sense!”
Wu Yun Liang’s face appeared dejected for a long period of time as he processed these words. Finally, he said, “Is that so?”
