Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 281 Chaos In Continent Center!
The full moon rose above everyone’s head and shined mysteriously. Its magnificent splendor enveloped the sky and its light shone down on the earth.
The martial masters were slightly exhausted because they had concentrated for many days. Everyone had begun to conclude that these two were hiding in a mouse hole. The entire citadel was frantically searching for them but they were nowhere to be found.
However, all of a sudden, someone stared at the sky with his mouth wide opened. He pointed up in the sky and screamed in a hoarse voice!
There were now two bright moons on top of their heads! As well as one sun!
While the two new arrivals were not as radiant as a true moon or sun, it was glaring that they were there!
The sun and moon shined together!
Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword had finally appeared!
At once, everyone flew up into the sky. More than 40 crowns were shining in the air with great majesty! Far and wide, King level masters had gathered, greatly increasing their strength!
They came from two directions, one from the east side of the citadel and one from the middle of the citadel!
Subsequently, the sun that signified Sunlight Saber began to move…
“Awooh…” A howl sounded out and the martial masters shot towards the direction of the sound.
The moon that signified Moonlight Sword flashed for a short moment and disappeared instantly. It was as if the owner of Moonlight Sword had discovered the strange phenomenon and sheathed his sword.
Meanwhile, the sun that signified Sunlight Saber still remained shining brightly. For some unknown reason, Moonlight Sword had vanished, but the sun of Sunlight Saber continued to shine this time.
However, no one could be bothered to think about this discrepancy at this point in time! Is it still shining? That’s just perfect for us to come and grab it!
From the ground, the owner of Sunlight Saber ran in great terror.
From a distance away, a group of marital masters followed the light in the sky, with the majestic light shining in their eyes. If Sunlight Saber was appearing now, there was no hope of him escaping… The only issue present was to determine which of the tens of King level leaders had the strength to secure the top position.
There were many people, but even more martial experts! Unfortunately, there was only one Sunlight Saber!
Many people had begun to think about potential enemies, allies, as well as those who were capable of snatching it away from them.
All of a sudden, there was a loud swoosh. Two white streaks had come up from behind them!
“Everyone! Master Chu wants this saber!” A voice yelled out from behind. It sounded as if he was announcing his right to the saber.
“Master Chu? F*ck! Who do you think you are?” Every single King level master was angry. In this scenario, everyone had covered up their face to ensure that they would not be recognized. In this situation, who would care about the difference between Middle and Upper Three Heavens?
As they saw the two white streaks gain proximity to Sunlight Saber, all of the martial masters increased their speed and chased them with their lives.
From a distance away, Jing Meng Hun sighed helplessly in the air.
Sure enough, everything was happening according to the Prime Minister’s prediction!
Sunlight Saber was evidently moving in the direction of the royal palace! Furthermore, it was getting very close to it!
The imperial power of Great Zhao was represented by the royal palace! Moreover, it was the gathering place of Diwu Qing Rou’s greatest opposition. In recent years, the emperor’s forces had been suppressed by Diwu Qing Rou. However, he could not and would not dare to eliminate them entirely!
The royal palace was their last stand!
There were many martial experts in the royal palace of Great Zhao! It was far better guarded than the royal palace of Iron Cloud!
However… this number of martial experts was considered a mediocre number in the current situation.
These martial experts were plentiful when tasked to deal with ordinary Jiang Hu people. But… when compared to dozens of King level masters of Middle Three Heavens, they were not adequate anymore. Instead, they could be described as… a herd of pigs!
Nevertheless, as expected, the reaction of the royal palace was extremely fast. First, there was a rain of arrows. Subsequently, dozens of figures jumped out and yelled angrily, “Hooligans, how dare you attack the royal palace! Kill these people without any mercy!”
Immediately, many martial experts jumped to the wall outside the royal palace.
The saber flashed brightly, with the majesty of the moon glowing with it. As it flew into the rain of arrows, it whistled sharply through the air. Bam, bam, bam. The sounds rang out as the bodies of many guards flew into the air. The figure carrying the saber howled with great excitement, “Awooh… Dog aunt! Dog aunt!”
Subsequently, he entered the palace without a care!
Following closely behind this figure was a white streak that moved like a flash! Everyone was very familiar with his identity. This was none other than the young master of the Chu clan from Upper Three Heavens, Chu Fei!
However, Chu Yang burst into laughter after hearing Ji Mo’s ‘dog aunt’ cry and nearly fell to the ground. Even until now, he still had no clue as to what the phrase ‘dog aunt’ that came out of Ji Mo’s mouth meant…
Within the royal palace, the voices of warnings rang out from all directions!
“Halt! Halt!” The leader of the royal palace guards roared, “Stop him! Shoot!” He could already see many people rushing into the royal palace from a distance.
Jing Meng Hun simply sighed and closed his eyes.
He thought: It’s probably better if you don’t say a word. By giving those commands, the royal palace will most likely turn into a ruin…
As expected, after the leader of the royal palace guards had bellowed, a group of King level masters ignored the warnings and jumped onto the royal palace’s elegant walls without hesitating.
Immediately after, there was a loud boom. The wall surrounding the royal palace had collapsed!
These people were all King level masters of Middle Three Heavens. In such an urgent situation like this, they only needed to be one step behind and that would lead to the security of the clan being affected for thousands of years. How could they have any heart to care for the welfare of some royal palace of Lower Three Heavens?
Naturally, they jumped on the wall like it was flat ground and rushed in as they screamed and yelled continually! Within moments, they collided with one another. The blood of the royal palace guards flew all over the place!
Soon after, yet another dozen of King level masters entered the royal palace like meteors. They rushed into the royal palace without any regard for it. Following closing behind there was the great army of Jiang Hu. They poured in like a roaring sea!
Shill screams could be heard from inside at once. The alarm bells rang out in a frantic manner. The sound of collapsing walls in the palace, fighting, and blades coming into contact with one another… They were mixed into a great pandemonium.
Dust and smoke were beginning to appear everywhere!
Jing Meng Hun stood in a distance with his head drooping down dejectedly. The palace was done! This chaos simply could not be stopped!
Up until now, Diwu Qing Rou still had the same firm belief that this was King of Hell Chu’s grand scheme! In fact, even after the great clans of Middle Three Heavens had verified that these two were Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword, Diwu Qing Rou still firmly believed that this was all part of King of Hell Chu’s scheme!
However, the chaos could not be stopped.
This scene was the same as the day when Chu Yang discovered that Diwu Qing Rou had used his scheming methods to gain manpower, while he could not do anything. Presently, Diwu Qing Rou knew of King of Hell Chu’s scheme, but he could only stand idly and watch.
He had no idea where King of Hell Chu was, as well as where the saber and sword were going to hit next.
He knew things were going to unfold that way, yet he was unable to prevent them from happening! For a person who was accustomed to having full control like Diwu Qing Rou himself, this was extreme torture.
Just seven days ago, King of Hell Chu had to suffer the same plight. As of now, the tables have turned and it was finally Diwu Qing Rou’s turned to taste the feeling of helplessness.
Within the past few days, Diwu Qing Rou did not stop trying to calculate the possible locations that King of Hell Chu would select to detonate this great chaos. After pondering for a long period of time, he concluded that the two potential targets were the royal palace and the Golden Horse Riders Department.
Because of this deduction of his, Diwu Qing Rou had given orders to Jing Meng Hun to move all of Golden Horse Riders Department in the short time frame of three days and three nights. They took along with them whatever their hands could take. They also brought along with them whatever they could bring. All of the martial experts had left the old location. Furthermore, Golden Horse Riders Department was currently holding onto only a few of the Jiang Hu people that they had just caught recently. The others were also moved to another location.
Diwu Qing Rou had wanted to move these people as well, but they simply did not have sufficient time to do so. Besides, there were many among these groups who were still rebellious and infinitely unwilling to comply. If they were to bring along these people, there would be a high chance of encountering a great mishap during their transportation. This would eventually prove to be too costly.
Diwu Qing Rou could not take such a risk. Hence, he had no choice but to leave those people behind.
Presently, Jing Meng Hun watched as the royal palace was in great chaos. Finally, he heaved a sigh of relief. He thought: At least the royal palace is the one that is in chaos and not the Golden Horse Riders Department. This dark cloud has a silver lining in it.
It was not that Diwu Qing Rou had failed to warn the royal palace to be on guard. While he might not have been one to care about the emperor, he was still a person of Great Zhao! In fact, he had even sent people to assist the royal family in evacuating from the royal palace.
However, Diwu Qing Rou’s goodwill was completely tossed aside by the emperor. Furthermore, when he was warning the emperor, the emperor even sneered at him and said, “Diwu Qing Rou, do you think that I’m an idiot? Attack the palace? Huh? As long as you, Diwu Qing Rou, don’t attack the palace, is there anyone else in the world that would cause such trouble?”
Upon hearing the news from his messenger, Diwu Qing Rou could not help but let out a long sigh. He decided to abandon all his efforts in helping the royal palace.
He had the foresight that King of Hell Chu would make his move. Besides, he was absolutely certain of this!
Even if there was trouble at Golden Horse Riders Department, all the martial experts would be able to retreat quickly. Hence, the damage would not be too devastating. However, the royal palace could not be moved just like that! Furthermore, the people in the royal palace were very weak!
What’s worse was that the royal palace was the heart of the nation!
Since King of Hell Chu had already initiated the chaos, he would not be called King of Hell Chu if he were to leave the royal palace untouched!
Unfortunately, the royal palace did not trust Diwu Qing Rou. Since they had refused his goodwill, Diwu Qing Rou could only give up on his efforts!
In truth, he had only offered his help as an insincere gesture.
Meanwhile, fire blazes began breaking out everywhere in the royal palace!
The blazing fire from within the royal palace caused part of the horizon to turn red. Soldiers gathered from all directions, in a bid to end the chaos.
Master Chu moved like the wind as he flew around the entire royal palace in his white outfit. Instead of coming to take Sunlight Saber, he was actually assisting Ji Mo.
Whenever the owner of Sunlight Saber was in grave danger, Young Master Chu would fly down and fight fiercely. Once he joined in, the King level masters simply could not do anything against him.
Ultimately, who would dare to kill a young master of Upper Three Heavens’ Chu clan in front of everyone else? Was this not a death wish? There would be countless witnesses here.
Young Master Chu was so imposing that he was unhindered wherever he went. During the chaos of the fight, the owner of Sunlight Saber would howl strangely, “Dog aunt…” Soon after, he would run away.
Another chase would begin again…
“It’s too dark! I can’t see anything. Motherf*cker, wouldn’t it be better if we start a few more first?” Young Master Chu yelled out.
Immediately, the King level masters realized that finding people in the dark was indeed difficult. Even though Young Master Chu had a rude mouth, his words were most accurate. There was no telling who initiated the first spark, but everyone raced to set fire to the palace…
Somehow, a King level master found the oil reserve of the royal palace and tossed out one barrel after another. Regardless of whether they had oil, they all burned brightly…
Poof… Poof… Poof…
Boom… Boom… Boom…
This was truly spectacular. In fact, someone had written a poem about it: Fireworks end the night; light on fishing boats are only enough to put one to sleep; Continent Center Citadel in chaos; midnight fire greets passengers.
