Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 295 Destruction of the Base!
“What kind of a sinister plot are you involved in?” Dong Wu Lei looked flustered as he shouted angrily; he punched and kicked at the same time.
“I can’t explain it right now,” Dong Wu Shang’s face turned cold as he replied in a muffled voice.
“When can you explain it?” Dong Wu Lei clenched his teeth and said.
“We’ll talk once we go back,” Dong Wu Shang grunted loudly.
“Explain…” Dong Wu Lei glared at him and said.
“It’s fake,” Dong Wu Shang rolled his eyes and replied.
“… ” Dong Wu Lei couldn’t help but curse out loud.
“Young Master, let us deal with him,” the two King level Experts of the Dong family said.
“Go away to the side!” Dong Wu Lei blew his top, and shouted, “I’ll deal with him myself.”
The faces of the two King level Experts twitched, “Then, should we grab the sword?” they asked.
“Grab my ‘rod’? You want to grab my ‘rod’… ah!” Dong Wu Lei shouted angrily, “Stand guard right here!”
Therefore, the two brothers continued to go farther while screaming at each other; they continued to punch and kick each other along the way. One of them leapt-up, and the other followed closely.
It didn’t take them too long to go far away from the place where their quarrel had begun.
They took several turns on their way. Dong Wu Lei gasped for breath, and pounced forward. But, the black-clothed masked man didn’t try to dodge the attack or hide. Suddenly, he was grabbed by the collar.
This made the two King level Experts open their eyes wide in shock. They looked like two monks scratching their heads; it seemed as if they had been unable to understand the gist of the matter.
“What’s going on?” the Eldest of the Dong Brothers gnashed his teeth and asked.
“This is just a game,” the voice of the masked man turned out to be familiar.
“Second Young Master…?” the two King level experts were stunned for a moment; they then exclaimed. They had never imagined that they would witness such an outcome of this fight.
“You say it’s a game?” The Eldest of the Dong Brothers seized Dong Wu Shang by his neck. He then said with grief and indignation. “Do you know that I was almost killed by Ao Xie Yun owing to this game of yours?! You… you… you! Why didn’t you tell me about it earlier?”
Dong Wu Shang grunted. He then replied in a cold voice, “Would you’ve suffered those beatings if I had told you earlier?”
“You! Well… well… good!” Dong Wu Lei was so angry that he was rendered speechless. His fingers trembled as he swallowed his saliva, and pointed a finger at his brother. Then, he spoke in a tone that made him look like he was about to spit out blood, “You’ve guts. You indeed have guts.” He then fiercely nodded his head.
“You would most likely be fighting over the sword right now if it wasn’t for me,” Dong Wu Shang snorted; his face was expressionless. He pointed his finger towards both the King level Experts of his clan and said, “Lead the way! I want to go back, and take a nap first.”
“I assure you that you’ll have nightmares when you go back and sleep,” Dong Wu Lei said with a crooked nose.
“Big Brother, you should be satisfied with your current situation. Luo Ke Di is an insider. But, isn’t he clamoring and shouting to break-in even now?” Dong Wu Shang said in an earnest manner, “Come on, let’s go back.”
“… ” Dong Wu Lei was speechless.
Meanwhile, everyone had found out about the ongoing situation owing to the King level Experts’ holler. The quick-tempered people had started to kick and punch with all their strength. But, they soon realized that the solid ground beneath their feet had shifted. And, their bodies had fallen straight downwards as a result.
“Fu*k… this underground place is too spacious.”
“What is this place?”
“Who cares what this place is? Find the Moonlight Sword first.”
“Is it possible that the people here have already hidden it away?”
“Maybe yes… that hateful bastard only had to insert it into someone else’s old den… this is fu*ked to the extreme.”
“How will we find it then?”
The headquarters of the Golden Horse Riders Department was in great chaos.
The sounds of the roof crashing to the floor could be heard in a continuous manner. The air had been filled with smoke and dust. Then, the entire ground collapsed with a loud thunderous bang – like a mountain rockslide.
The underground area was hollow. So, it couldn’t have sustained the burden of so many King level Experts running amuck.
Suddenly, blood-curdling screams began to rise and fall in quick succession.
Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing held their breaths, and took advantage of the ongoing chaos to sneak their way into the Golden Horse Riders Department.
This was a Heaven-sent opportunity for them.
The biggest enemy of the Golden Horse Riders Department – King of Hell Chu – wouldn’t have been able to infiltrate their headquarters so easily if it wasn’t for all the chaos caused by the ‘Moonlight Sword incident’ and Diwu Qing Rou’s order to withdraw his personnel. In fact, this would have come off as an embarrassing joke if anyone had said it before.
Their primary mission was to free the Jiang Hu people who had been captured by the Golden Horse Riders Department. According to Chu Yang’s research, these people were being imprisoned in this base.
Their secondary mission was the thorough destruction of the base.
Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing went straight underground. And, they found themselves in a complete mess after crossing all the three layers. However, there was something which brought great joy to Chu Yang. It was a guy was holding a sword in his hand! Moreover, he seemed quite high-spirited as he ran out of the underground area.
[ F**k! Isn’t that the main cause of all this mess –’The Moonlight Sword’?]
Chu Yang’s stare intensified.
[Dong Wu Shang had thrown it with so much force that it had penetrated more than three-hundred feet into the ground. Isn’t his strength great?]
This wasn’t the right time to marvel at the extent of the strength displayed by Dong Wu Shang. So, Chu Yang’s figure flashed as he arrived in front of the man carrying the sword. The man’s heart froze with a cold intention with a ‘pop’ sound. Gu Du Xing killed the man as soon as Chu Yang snatched the sword away from him.
“The enemy has blended amongst us.”
“This isn’t good.”
Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing continued to proceed forward, and kill one expert after the other on their way. They soon reached half-way inside the mountain’s belly. However, they realized that they hadn’t encountered even a single expert of the ‘Martial Great Master level’ on their way. The majority of the experts they had encountered were either Martial Artists or Martial Masters.
It was clear that Diwu Qing Rou had transferred those experts away from the base. Chu Yang felt hateful and irritated in his heart as he thought, [It seems that the bastard had already anticipated that I would soon be arriving here to lay this place to waste. So, he made preparations in advance. Damn! This isn’t good. I’m having a bad feeling about this…]
Then, the Moonlight Sword arrived inside the Nine Tribulations Space, and was stored-up.
“Why did you keep it?” Gu Du Xing was puzzled.
“Stupid! I kept it so that they can’t find it. Understood?” Chu Yang said. “See, they must’ve seen it falling here. Wouldn’t they go all-out, and wreck this place to look for its traces if they can’t find it? If they don’t find in a single day — then they would take two days. If they don’t find it in two days… then they would take three days. Won’t they continue to dig for a thousand feet if they don’t find it after a hundred, eh?” Chu Yang said. Gu Du Xing’s entire body suddenly got covered in cold sweat.
Suddenly, he understood what Chu Yang was planning to do. He wanted the destruction of the base without getting his own hands dirty!
The sounds of the explosions were getting closer by every passing moment.
Everyone had started to regret that they were born with only two feet since this birth-defect had rendered them helpless in quickly getting away from the place. The mountain could collapse at any moment in the midst of such lunacy.
Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing were also running quickly.
“It should be over there,” Chu Yang said.
Gu Du Xing rolled his eyes in a contemptuous manner. The cries had become almost deafening by the time they reached there.
“Let us out!”
“We want to go out!”
One would’ve been extremely dumb if one wasn’t able to determine the whereabouts of those people even after hearing their shouts.
Chu Yang dashed forward. Shua! Shua! Shua! He quickly chopped-off the huge iron chains of the three prison cells. The stream of people came rushing out – like a raging tide.
Shua! Chu Yang proceeded with his task. It didn’t take too long for him to open all the prison cells.
These people seemed to have lost their martial powers. Otherwise, how could they have been locked-up in the prison cells? They had been unable to break out. However, it didn’t matter now as they were already out of the prison cells. Every one of them had discovered the means to unlock the seals.
Meanwhile, Mo Tian Yun and the others were carefully looking for the sword. But, they couldn’t find it anywhere. Suddenly, the Young Masters spotted a dense mass of people rushing towards them. The Young Masters were caught off-guard as the people almost trampled over them – like meat patties.
In the meantime, Chu Yang was looking for something else.
“What are you looking for?”
“I’m looking for… where is the treasure trove of the Golden Horse Riders Department?” Chu Yang said as if he had gotten a headache. This easy-money-addict seemed to be looking forward to obtain some unexpected fortunes at this place as well!
“Diwu Qing Rou had already anticipated our move. Then, why would he leave something behind for you?” Gu Du Xing’s lips curled-up as he spoke.
“We have no choice in that case. Let’s get out of here!” Chu Yang raised his head, and started to follow after the crowd. He and Gu Du Xing made a cumbersome effort to control their martial powers, and ran out.
They brushed past Mo Tian Yun, Xie Dan Qiong, and other people.
The Young Masters soon entered the lowest layer.
The place echoed with a ‘bang’ sound after a while.
The entire mountain collapsed with a loud explosion; clouds of dust and smoke were sent dozens of feet high in the air.
“It’s spectacular.” Chu Yang stood at a high ground; he sighed in admiration. “It has finally collapsed.”
The smoke and dust filled the air. However, dozens of figures were still busy looking for something.
Mo Tian Yun and the others eventually made a decision. They thought; [This is the base of the Golden Horse Riders Department – the territory of Diwu Qing Rou. That sword clearly fell here. But, we couldn’t find it here. So, we might as well look for Diwu Qing Rou to talk about the terms and conditions.]
Besides, would they fail to find the sword if they continued to look for it even after failing for a couple of days? One must keep in mind that a skillful person can carve embroidery on an iron rod with bare hands. After all, the Heavens don’t disappoint the person who tries.
But, these Young Masters didn’t know that the Moonlight Sword had already gone back to its rightful owner; not just in name, but also in reality.
The people who knew the inside story certainly wouldn’t deny the truth. The so-called Moonlight Sword had been created by Chu Yang.
Chu Yang wasn’t concerned about how the situation would develop. He only needed to know one thing – these noble Young Masters would definitely make Diwu Qing Rou’s life hell, and beat him black-and-blue in the coming days. In fact, Diwu Qing Rou would be annoyed to death!
People were certainly not going to believe Diwu Qing Rou’s rhetoric about the King of Hell Chu’s involvement in this incident. What level of treasures were these Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword? Why would King of Hell Chu be willing to use such priceless treasures as baits if he was behind all this mess? Was he trying to cheat a ghost?
“Would you be willing to part with such treasures if you were Diwu Qing Rou?” This question would surely leave him speechless.
“I guess we have nothing to do here for the time being,” Gu Du Xing pondered. He asked after a while, “What do we do next?”
“Let’s find a place to hide. I’ll give you some materials to add to your Black Dragon Sword,” Chu Yang resumed his seriousness as he replied in a solemn tone. “Your Black Dragon Sword is a divine weapon. It’s not fake, but it’s too fragile. So, I’ll temper and refine it for you.”
“Moreover, I’m afraid that the Gu Clan will soon summon you back since the Gu Brothers are dead,” Chu Yang said lightly, “I think that we would be separated in the summer. So, I must make some preparations for that.”
“Yes. There are some things that I need you to deliver to Dong Wu Shang, Ji mo, Luo Ke Di and Rui Bu Tong,” Chu Yang said. He continued to speak in a soft voice, “There are also some things that I need you to take to Xiao Wu. Moreover, there are a few other things that I need you to do in the Middle Three Heavens.”
There was an anxious look in Chu Yang’s eyes as he looked into the distance. It seemed as if his gaze would penetrate through the spatial barrier of this Heaven in order to reach Mo Qing Wu. He thought, [Qing Wu, I wonder how you’re doing right now?]
