Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 36 Why Can't History Be Changed?
“His generosity and the way he treats people of great talent is his weakness and Great Zhao will definitely exploit this!” Wu Yun Liang said with a heavy heart, “Although generosity is considered a good trait, it can be often exploited by enemies, leaving the person more vulnerable to assassinations. This is one of the reasons why individuals become more guarded after experiencing success.” Chu Yag agreed with Wu Yun Liang but kept a straight face without making any comment. “Great Zhao has failed in many assassination attempts at Tie Bu Tian’s life. Hence they are trying to take a different approach which would be where our Beyond the Heaven Sect comes in.” Wu Yun Liang said, laughing coldly. Chu Yang nodded in agreement and said: “Oh, so that’s the reason eldest martial Uncle decided to feign ignorance and at the same time craft your own plans?”
“That’s right!” Wu Yun Liang said, stroking his beard, “If plan on using us; why not seize the opportunity and make use of them as well!”
It was at that moment that Chu Yang had an epiphany. He finally understood the reason Beyond the Heavens Sect was destroyed. It was because of Wu Yun Liang’s plan to use the two countries had fallen through!
This was far too complicated. It was difficult to be absolutely certain especially when a genius like Diwu Qing Rou was part of the equation. His intelligence and foresight were beyond compare. Even Mo Tian Ji, someone from Chu Yang’s previous life who was renown for his manipulation and craftiness, was no exception to this fact! After proving his superiority by conquering all of the Lower Three Heavens continent, Diwu Qing Rou was referred to as the individual whose talent was greater than a hundred advisories combined! Even his enemies herald him as an anomaly in the entirety of history itself!
He was all rounded; not only did he have brilliant military command, natural charismatic but was also crafty in the way he thought! The vastness of his knowledge far surpassed anyone. Even to the extent that despite him not knowing any martial arts, he would rule over a territory if he entered the Upper Three Heavens. His potential and the regard others felt for him was simply immense!
Wu Yun Liang was treading on thin ice. One small mistake and everything would fail, resulting in disastrous consequences.
“I’m aware that this is an extremely precarious situation!” Wu Yun Liang said, “One small mistake and Beyond the Heavens Sect could be left in ruins. Yet, I cannot afford not to do it.”
Chu Yang nodded in agreement.
“Great Zhao has placed a lot of pressure on our sect during these couple of years. Yet they have not pushed us to our deaths. Instead they have given us just enough leeway to side with the Iron Cloud Nation.”
“We only need to side with Iron Cloud. There are three other moles aside from the ten of us in our sect. All of them are spying for other sects. This is one of the main reasons why the other sects had leverage over us for the past couple of years. I believe that this is part of Diwu Qing Rou’s plan. I’m sure that once we are completely allied with Iron Cloud, he will certainly make use of this to carry out an assassination on Tie Bu Tian! We need to wait and see his true motive and purpose behind everything!” This made Wu Yun Liang worried as he continued, “Diwu Qing Rou only cares about the death of Tie Bu Tian and not about our sect. Therefore, once he succeeds, it is likely that our sect will be of no use to him and he will have it destroyed!”
Chu Yang’s expression turned serious. Despite not knowing the details of this event, what he knew for certain was that two months after Tie Bu Tian’s death, Beyond the Heaven Sect would be destroyed!
If Wu Yun Liang continued, history is likely to repeat itself! However, if Wu Yun Liang abandoned his plans then Beyond the Heavens Sect will fall even quicker under pressure of the court and the other sects, all of which orchestrated by Diwu Qing Rou!
To make matters worse, the plans were already in motion and it was difficult to put a stop to them. Both Beyond the Heavens Sect and Iron Cloud Nation had established their relationship. Li Jinsong would still have the authority to act as a representative without Wu Yun Liang. This would thus facilitate the success of Diwu Qing Rou’s plans!
There was actually an additional reason why Diwu Qing Rou chose Beyond the Heavens Sect. It’s tactical location! It stood close to the border between Great Zhao and Limitless Nation. In addition, it’s terrain was mountainous with dense vegetation. You could hide an immense army and get away with it!
The strategic location of Beyond the Heavens Sect was extremely valuable. Moreover, if Iron Cloud Nation were to perish, Great Zhao could march its army from Iron Cloud through Beyond the Heavens Sect and be in Limitless nation in five days! However, if other troops were to march into Limitless Nation from other directions then it would take slightly less than a month.
In other words, Diwu Qing Rou had already carefully thought of every scenario and all he needed was to control Beyond the Heavens Sect. This would allow him to actualise the rest of his plans!
However, it was likely that his plans were extremely complex and involved multiple conspiracies and manipulations. It was difficult for Chu Yang to do anything because he did not have any knowledge of any of it. However, what he did know are the events which unfolded in his previous life.
This was the issue at hand. Currently, despite Chu Yang knowing what was going to happen, he did not have sufficient power to make a difference. Moreover, if he did try to tell someone, they would simply not believe his words!
Chu Yang was an average disciple in of Beyond the Heavens Sect. What kind of ability would he need if he was intended to alter the fate of three entire nations?
For the first time, Chu Yang had a kind of feeling: History, it cannot be changed!
So what if I had a second life? It’s just the concern of one man with no relation to any others. If history cannot be turned, then what will be of Qing Wu?
Should I just watch the tragedies unfold this time around?
What should I do?
At this point, Chu Yang realised something. If I can’t change these events, it simply means that history itself cannot be changed. Those destined to die will die. Everyone will remain bound by their fate!
If such events cannot be changed then Mo Qing Wu’s fate is sealed. At most his life might be able to be prolonged by a few years. Similar to the case of Shi Qian Shan, even though he was supposed to die in 4 years, he still met his fate. This were things that no one could ever predict.
However, there was one consolation. If history could not be changed, Mo Qing Wu would still spend her life with Chu Yang.
This was predestined and no one would be able to change it despite the power that they might have!
This epiphany was encouraging for Chu Yang as he came to a realisation that history was the focal point of the ways of the heavens!
However, this enlightenment only led him to feel more indignant and violent… A bloodthirsty desire to kill surged inside him!
If history could not be changed then it would mean… Qing Wu would still have to die?
No! I shall not give up!
