Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 53 The Nine Tribulations Sword's Contemp
The leader raised his hand and whistled a signal. In an instant, approximately eighty to ninety masked men dressed in black had lined up in an orderly fashion. They had created an awe-inspiring and impenetrable wall in a flash.
Manager Gao and the four remaining guards felt like they were in a dream.
They were in a precarious situation and the enemy was about to succeed. Just as they were furious and despaired at the same time, Chu Yang unexpectedly appeared with another person. Furthermore, what made it more surprising was the fact that he had yelled for them to stop.
Indeed, the enemies stopped moving!
Now that they had heard the conversation, they were aware that this other person was the commander of the team!
Unbelievable! How could there be such a coincidence? This was truly unexpected!
While it was extremely risky to enter the enemies’ formation alone, it was absolutely impossible to kidnap the commander and still be able to waltz through so many layers of defense! It was practically impossible for a person to single-handedly reverse the tide of the battle in the blink of an eye… Was this a myth or a legend?
It seemed that no such thing had ever been recorded in history!
Everyone was staring at Chu Yang in a different light!
“There is one thing that I need…” The person in black paused for a moment before continuing, “I want to verify that the person is still alive!”
“No problem.” Chu Yang exclaimed enthusiastically, before he placed his palm on the person’s heart, transferring a wave of cold air through his body.
Immediately, the person trembled and became alert. At this point, he realized the situation he was in and yelled furiously, “What are you waiting for? Kill them now!”
“There’s no need to worry about me!” Yelled the hostage, “Why are you worrying about me at this juncture?”
“Sir, you mask has not been taken off.” Chu Yang said softly, “Also, you have lost. Would you even be able to win us in a fight in this situation? Would your subordinates dare to do such a thing?”
The man became infuriated. He cursed, “Bastard! Who are you? How are we defeated? What right do you have to tell us that we have lost this battle?”
“What gives me the right is that…” Chu Yang proclaimed arrogantly, “You are in my hands! You are just a fish waiting to be slain. Understand?”
Instantly, the hostage became quiet and began breathing heavily. His eyes were filled with shame and anguish. All of a sudden, he turned his body and attempted to bring his neck towards Chu Yang’s blade!
Everyone yelled out in horror!
Chu Yang laughed coldly and with a powerful lift, he pushed the hostage to the ground with just one arm. He kicked his buttock and said viciously, “Should you refuse to listen to my commands, I will remove your mask and clothes even if you were to die. Subsequently, I will use your body as a flag to enter Iron Cloud Citadel! You may go ahead and try me if you dare!”
The man was astounded to hear this, but he finally calmed down. He was not afraid at the thought of death, however, what Chu Yang had just said was absolutely evil!
With such a prestigious position in Iron Cloud, he could not afford to suffer such a humiliation even after his death! He had to protect the reputation of his family and the military…
“Fine…” He sighed, “If what you wish for is to enter Iron Cloud Citadel safely, I will gladly comply. No one will dare to go against you from henceforth.”
“I can’t trust your words!” Chu Yang exclaimed, “We’ll need you to escort us!”
“You…!” The man turned his body and stared at Chu Yang.
Chu Yang was stunned when he saw that an endless coldness, along with an almighty power, came from within the man’s eyes. Furthermore, those very eyes appeared to display a disdainful look that disregarded other lives.
This man was definitely a person of a high position!
“There is no need to stare at much in this way. I will release you once we are safe. I know that you are worried, but do rest assured. I will neither make it hard for you nor will I reveal your identity. Even I have no clue with regards to your identity.” Chu Yang said casually, “While I don’t believe that you will honor your word, rest assured that you can believe in mine.”
He paused for a moment and exclaimed, “You have no other choice!”
The man glared at Chu Yang for a moment and suddenly waved at his underlings to be dismissed, “You guys may leave. I will entertain them for just a little while.”
“You… Eldest Martial Brother…!” The leader of the group in black took a firm step forward. Unexpectedly, he threw himself on the ground and put out his arms, “Please take me instead of Eldest Martial Brother! I promise to heed your commands the entire journey. Rest assured that I will keep my promise even though I am worth less than my Eldest Martial Brother.”
“Shut up! Get the f*** out of here!” Chu Yang’s hostage bellowed furiously, “You… He… Motherf*****… You wish to piss me off? When I get back, I will slaughter your entire family, seize your property… Motherf*****… Kill all nine generations of your family! How dare you speak gibberish in front of me! Get out of here now!”
“Bring those thugs with you. You, idiots, are still not leaving. Get out of here… Get out of here… Get out…!” The man swore continuously, “You motherf*****s look so excited. You must be really happy, huh? You still refuse to leave?”
Facing his anger and screams, his underlings had no choice but to leave reluctantly.
“You better listen to me! Should you dare to even touch a hair on our Eldest Martial Brother, we will ensure that you are minced to pieces, even if it means risking all nine generations of our family and hunting you down to the ends of the earth.”
The leader of the men in black yellowed before walking away. Soon after, they vanished into the thick forest.
Noticing that they had left, Chu Yang slumped onto the ground, exhausted. He placed his shaky hand which contained the Pure Purple Jade Essence on his chest to recover his martial energy.
Unexpectedly, an overbearing opposition rose in his head. Nine Tribulations Sword Spirit would not let him do it.
Chu Yang was dumbfounded and cursed in his head, “F*** You didn’t want to help me when I was fighting earlier on, yet now you refuse to let me recover my martial energy?!”
“You did not use the force of Nine Tribulations Sword when you were fighting earlier, yet you wanted help in cheering you on? I can only assist you and not take over full control of your body. Be it your physical body or your thoughts, the one in control is you, Chu Yang, not Nine Tribulations Sword. You have to be clear on this! Now, let’s talk about recovery. When you are at the point of extreme pain and exhaustion, you can only breakthrough and increase your martial energy by using your own effort. You’re constantly depending on this darn jade to get warm winters and cool summers, wanting to recover quickly just by sitting there! And you wish to have a breakthrough?!”
Chu Yang had no expectations of recovering fully with Nine Tribulations Sword Spirit, but he most certainly did not expect it to speak to him in this way. Hence, he could not help but be astounded upon hearing all these.
The Pure Purple Jade Essence was a precious treasure. However, it had become a worthless piece of jade to commoners when the Sword Spirit was in control!
“Once you discover your ancestry, the first thing I will do is to devour that darn piece of jade! There’s so much energy stored in it, yet I can only watch idly!” The Sword Spirit mumbled. It fell back into silence without waiting for a response from Chu Yang.
What the f***! Chu Yang rolled his eyes and his mouth was gaping. Unbeknownst to him, the Sword Spirit had been tempted by the jade the entire time.
“You can absorb the energy! Since when did I forbid you from doing so?” Chu Yang asked curiously.
“Then what will you use to find your parents? By traveling all over the world with your bare ass?” Nine Tribulations Sword Spirit screamed furiously. Soon after, it mumbled, “I could not find a suitable host for thousands of years. Now that I’ve found one, it’s actually a brainless idiot!”
“Who are you calling an idiot?!” Chu Yang yelled out furiously. He was enraged and his mouth was foaming!
F***! In his previous life, Nine Tribulations Sword Spirit had no guts to speak to him in this way. He thought, “You are just a sword! I may be patient, but I most certainly will not put up with such impertinence!
“I… I did not call you…” A confused face and voice were directed at Chu Yang.
Manager Gao approached Chu Yang with a concerned look on his face. He had originally wanted to thank Chu Yang. Never would he have expected him to suddenly open his eyes widely and yell, “Who are you calling an idiot?!”
Manager Gao was immensely taken aback. He thought, “When did I call you an idiot? I didn’t even open my mouth yet!”
