Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 286 Truly A Good Saber…
“There’s another piece of good news…” Chu Yang spoke with such majesty, “No one knew that I was the one who killed them.”
“Nonsense!” Gu Du Xing exclaimed as he rolled his eyes in disbelief.
“So, you should prepare to avenge your brothers’ death.” Chu Yang continued, “If things are to go as I’ve predicted, your Gu clan will be going head-on with the Xie clan.”
“The Xie clan?” Gu Du Xing scratched his head, “What does any of this have to do with the Xie clan?”
“Xie Dan Qiong killed one of your clan’s King level masters on his own accords. Immediately after that, I made my movie. Essentially, we had worked together in great coordination to kill three out of four people that your Gu clan sent out for training!” Chu Yang laughed.
Gu Du Xing finally understood what he meant. He replied, “So the young master of the Xie clan, Xie Dan Qiong, will have to take this dirty water basin in your place…”
“Exactly.” Chu Yang clapped his hands in excitement and said, “Xie Dan Qiong is a good person; people who do good deeds will go down in history. Meanwhile, we should just do our work silently…”
“Can we do our work silently?” Gu Du Xing sighed heavily. He looked at Chu Yang with a helpless but thankful gaze.
Although Chu Yang sounded like he was relaxed, Gu Du Xing knew very well that Chu Yang had taken on extremely high risks for him.
Besides, Chu Yang’s cultivation was just at the level of Great Sword Master!
One Great Master has actually killed two key characters in front of the watchful eyes of some 40 to 50 King level masters and managed to escape with his entire body in perfect condition…
Gu Du Xing barely even thought about the possible methods that Chu Yang might have used to accomplish this feat.
In fact, he was having cold sweats just by thinking about this event!
What was Chu Yang’s current status in Iron Cloud? To put it into a greater perspective, Chu Yang’s safety was directly linked to the outcome of the war between the two nations! Not one movie could be tolerated; not one flaw could even surface!
Furthermore, a cold could potentially affect Chu Yang’s thought processes and cause serious issues in the blink of an eye…
In such a situation, how could Chu Yang dare to take his chances and kill Gu Yan Yang and Gu Yang Yue?
For his brother! For me!
That’s because Chu Yang knows that my unfortunate childhood was a result of Gu Yan Yang and his brother mistreating me! It’s because Chu Yang knows that those two never ceased to attempt killing me! It’s because Chu Yang knows that with those two around, I would never be able to rise up in the Gu clan!
That’s because those two are the true heirs of the clan!
Gu Du Xing knew that he would not protest if those two could deliver if they were to succeed the clan. However, the inherent issue was that those two were absolutely too weak to build any foundation. Furthermore, they easily became jealous of other people’s talents and used dark, cunning schemes to get what they wanted.
Thus, why did Chu Yang make his movie earlier in the night? It was entirely because of Gu Du Xing.
Gu Du Xing never thanked him, but neither did he have to. Nonetheless, he would certainly remember this gratitude for a long time!
Even though this matter was not dealt with openly, this one move of Chu Yang would remove all of Gu Du Xing’s troubles for all eternity!
If Gu Du Xing was up to his own devices, he would most likely not have been able to make a move against them, considering the kindness of his foster father.
For the entire night, the two did not speak to each other again.
It was not until the next morning that the competition finally ended! Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing stood outside the royal palace as they watched in their white outfits, fluttering in the wind.
It was not clear how fierce the fighting from the previous night was, but what was clear was that the entire place was filled with thick layers of smoke. It appeared to have become a ruin! Truth be told, this was not at all an exaggeration; not even one room was left intact!
This royal palace had been completely shattered to pieces.
The one who had the greatest harvest was definitely Chu Yang. This was because after entering the royal palace last night, he helped Ji Mo a few times. Thereafter, when he noticed that there was no longer an issue, he simply turned around and found the treasury.
How could Minister Chu let such a perfect opportunity pass him by?
The guards at the treasury had long gone. Chu Yang had Nine Tribulations Sword in his hand; just how sharp was it? He instantly made a large hole and walked right in. Chu Yang was in a rush this time around and did not have the chance to absorb these things. But… there was space available in Nine Tribulations…
He raised his arm and waved, “Take this for me!”
“Take this for me!”
After calling out in this fashion for a few dozen times, the treasury had been emptied…
Subsequently, he walked out.
Otherwise, how could he possibly have the ability to shoot out from the raging fire after killing Gu Yan Yang and his brother? Furthermore, the young masters of the 19 great clans, along with their King level masters had no clue that… The place where the fire was burning in the fiercest manner was actually the treasury of the royal palace…
It was now nearly noon…
From within the palace, three dejected silhouettes walked out slowly. In front of the trio was Luo Ke Wu from the Luo clan. He cursed as he walked; both his eyes were purple like a panda in a circus.
From a distance, his shouting could be heard clearly, “Motherf*cker! Too lowly! Too lowly! THat bastard Xie Dan Qiong; I can’t believe he actually played me! If not for…!”
Behind him, another young master with disheveled hair was grinding his teeth as he cursed, “Motherf*cker, how can I be this unlucky? I simply went up and met with little poison. His mother! What could I do…”
Behind them, Tu Qian Hao walked out with an intense look. He did not even bother grunting and just left with great disdain.
“What a fart; putting up the air! Do you really think that you’re something?” Luo Ke Wu spat and tried to instigate a fight with him. He was deeply annoyed by his loss and was looking for an opponent to unleash his frustrations on.
Tu Qian Hao turned around ferociously. He glared at Luo Ke Wu. It was as if he had intentions of eating him alive. Seeing this, Luo Ke Wu did not back off. He puffed up his chest arrogantly and said, “Tu Qian Hao! Are you unhappy?”
Tu Qian Hao spat on the ground furiously and said, “If it weren’t for the respect I have for your older sister, I…” Then, he turned to walk away…
Luo Ke Wu chased after him angrily and yelled, “You and my older sister are not even married yet! Motherf*cker, yet you already see yourself as my brother-in-law?! Motherf*cker, how dare you talk like you’re above me?”
At this juncture, Luo Ke Wu exploded all of a sudden, “Stop right there! Today, I have to ask you a question. Do you wish to marry my older sister or my aunt? Stop… Stop…!”
Tu Qian Hao simply did not bother paying attention and kept walking further from him.
Meanwhile, the edge of Chu Yang’s mouth twitched ever so slightly. These two brothers-in-law… are truly…
“I finally understand why Luo Ke Di’s personality is like that…” Chu Yang rubbed his chin as he said with a deep, pondering gaze.
“I understand too.” Gu Du Xing looked towards Luo Ke Wu and nodded his head. He let out a long sigh and said, “If the upper beam is not straight, neither will the lower one be straight.”
“Perhaps that’s not where the issue lies in…” Chu Yang’s gaze appeared to show that he was in deep thought.
“That actually makes a lot of sense.” Gu Du Xing frowned and nodded in earnest, “Perhaps, it is his father!”
The next person to walk out of the royal palace was none other than Ou Du Xiao. At this moment, this future Poison Spirit looked extremely pitiful. His left eye was black, while his right eye was red. His clothes were torn apart, showcasing a pair of snow-white thighs. As he walked, his round buttocks were playing peek-a-boo with a slight trace of elegance.
He lamented as he hobbled, “I’m so unlucky to have encountered a mutant that’s not at all afraid of poison… Ao Xie Yun…”
With a plop, Li Xiong Tu rolled out the door with a swollen face. Two King level masters of the Li clan followed closely behind him. They grabbed him firmly and asked, “Young master, are you alright?”
“Motherf*cker! I’ve told the two of you countless times; call me Hero Li!” Li Xiong Tu glared at them in fury. Next, he turned back and yelled, “Mo Tian Yun, I will never forget this! Let’s go…”
Two other people left the game shortly after. Next was Jade Flower, followed by Xie Dan Qiong, who walked out in great annoyance. His face still appeared white and handsome as before, but the clothes on his body were more pitiful than those of a beggar. He left in a haste, not uttering a single word.
All those who left the royal palace experienced the same thing. They could clearly see the two Young Masters Chu; Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing, who were in clothes as white as snow, yet no one had the courtesy to go over to greet them.
Each and every one of them was full of pride. All of them had the same mentality: You people are from Upper Three Heavens; we are from Middle Three Heavens. Since we are of two different worlds, we shall walk different paths.
Besides, they felt embarrassed at the states that they were in, hence they did not want to walk over. They were already losing face in Middle Three Heavens; they did not want to risk losing their face in Upper Three Heavens as well…
After waiting for a long period of time, they did not see anyone else leaving the palace. Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing were now on the verge of losing their patience. Finally, they saw three people walking out from the inside. Mo Tian Yun and the two King level masters of the Mo clan walked out with solemn faces. All three of them appeared gloomy; it was obvious that they had lost in the competition.
“Let’s go!” Mo Tian Yun ordered in a grunting voice. He was just about to leave the place when he saw Chu Yang.
Mo Tian Yun took one glance at the surroundings and unexpectedly, he headed over with an extremely enthusiastic look on his face, “Two Young Masters Chu, this…”
“It’s nothing. We merely wanted to see if that saber is real or fake.”
Chu Yang smiled and said, “Young Master Mo, you…?” He noticed an eye-catching five fingers imprinted on Mo Tian Yun’s face.
“Cough cough. I’m not as talented as others. Ao Xie Yun… Ah…” Mo Tian Yun sighed with a look of disappointment. Immediately, he blinked and said, “That saber… is in Ao Xie Yun’s hands.”
As expected, Mo Tian Yun knew the reason why the two Young Masters Chu of Upper Three Heavens had come here. The moment he saw them, he instantly seized the opportunity to stab Ao Xie Yun in the back.
If I can’t have it, Ao Xie Yun shall not get to keep it easily either.
Chu Yang nodded with an understanding look on his face. Shortly after, he said in a comforting tone, “Brother Mo, there’s no need for you to be so angry. Even though you can’t get your hands on this saber… isn’t there still a sword?”
How could Chu Yang not be aware of Mo Tian Yun’s cunning intention?
As he stood on the side, Gu Du Xing was feeling slightly contemptuous. So many people had left the palace earlier, but no one had said anything. The moment Mo Tian Yun showed his face, he had already become an informant…
Mo Tian Yun’s eyes lit up the moment he heard what Chu Yang said. He laughed loudly and said, “Young Master Chu, I will take my leave first.”
“Please feel free to, Brother Mo.” Chu Yang said intimately and bade him farewell.
After what seemed like an eternity, Ao Xie Yun and the three King level masters of the Ao clan came out from within the smoke and fire. They were talking and laughing excitedly. Slanting over his shoulder was a slick animal skin wrap. In it was the Sunlight Saber that had gotten all of Jiang Hu fighting.
It appeared that the saber had fallen into the hands of the Ao clan!
Glancing at Chu Yang, Ao Xie Yun’s countenance seemed to change slightly. Immediately, he went over and greeted, “Brother Chu?”
Chu Yang smiled back and asked politely, “Brother Ao, may I have a quick look at the saber?”
The moment he spoke, the three King level masters of the Ao clan were instantly on guard. They cautiously watched Chu Yang as the atmosphere thickened with aura.
“Why not?” Ao Xie Yun readily took the saber from his shoulder and handed it over to Chu Yang.
If the other person was asking openly, he would definitely not snatch it! If he was asking for a quick look, then he would look for a short moment! Ao Xie Yun understood this very well.
Chu Yang took the saber from his hand and swung it back and forth. Subsequently, he looked for a while and praised, “This is truly a good saber…”
