Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 570 Three Strangers!
Moreover, the crown on Tan Tan’s head was bigger than that of an ordinary King Level Expert… Meng Chao Ran collapsed.
In fact, he didn’t even notice that there was a radiant sun in the middle of the crown on Tan Tan’s head. Moreover, it was radiating rays of light. There was a crescent moon on the left side of the sun. And, there was a star on the right side.
It looked like a crown of an ordinary King level Expert. But, it was far different from that! This was the shape of a real crown! Let’s say that the crown of a King level Expert was a prince. Then, this crown above Tan Tan’s head would be an emperor by that analogy!
Moreover, one angle of that star’s light was faintly similar to that incomplete mark on Tan Tan’s forehead…
“Master… Master, are you alright?” Tan Tan became anxious when he saw Meng Chao Ran faint. So, he rushed over.
Meng Chao Ran had been worried about Chu Yang and Tan Tan since the past few days. So, he was both mentally and physically exhausted. Both of these disciples had been like pieces of his heart. And, there had been unexpected incidents with both of them. Meng Chao Ran couldn’t bear this. One of them had gone away, and hadn’t returned yet. And, the other one had been succumbing to strange conditions one after another…
And, he had been left so severely frightened by this… that his mind couldn’t take it anymore.
However, Meng Chao Ran finally regained his consciousness after Tan Tan cried out.
Tan Tan supported his body up once he had regained his consciousness. However, he then urged Tan Tan to show off his new powers once again…
The outcome of the demonstration made Meng Chao Ran roll back his eyes again… And, made him a little bit dizzy once again…
[He’s surely a ninth grade King Level Expert!]
Meng Chao Ran weakly waved his hand with dull eyes, “You leave… Let me rest here alone for a little while… I will go crazy. I…”
[This is very strange! Even Chu Yang wouldn’t have known what’s happened to Tan Tan if he were present here…]
Tan Tan stood there at a loss, and didn’t know what to do. So, he merely scratched his head. He wanted to smile, but couldn’t since he felt embarrassed. He wanted to say something, but he didn’t wish to say anything inappropriate. So, he was left to scratch his head without having a better option. And, he conveniently scratched his back as well while he was at it.
Master Meng lowered his head in misery, “There has been nothing in my life that I am proud of. I have only been proud of one thing in my heart — I have toughened my mental strength so that I can’t be fazed by anything in the Nine Heavens. And, this is what a teacher can dare to boast about. After all, a teacher mustn’t frown even if someone hacks him to pieces when he’s fully conscious and clear-headed…”
“However… you two little brats have given me strokes, and have smashed my pride within several days by lashing me to no end! You startle me on one day. Then, you make my hair stand on end the next day. You even give me shock several times a day on some occasions… What do I call this?”
So, he downheartedly waved, “Go away. Go away. Let me calm down…”
Tan Tan blinked and scratched his head. He still didn’t feel relieved. So, he stammered for a while. Then, he slowly said, “Master, I’m leaving…”
“Go,” Meng Chao Ran didn’t look at him; he only waved his hand.
“Master… So, I may leave…” Tan Tan had walked two steps and turned around.
“Master… then, I may leave…” Tan Tan took three steps, and turned around again…
“Master, I may really leave… Puff! Ah!~~~”
His last words changed into a scream. It turned out that he had been firmly kicked by Meng Chao Ran on the buttocks. Consequently, he was sent out flying like an artillery shell.
Meng Chao Ran’s roar was heard the next second, “Get lost!~~~~~ You are fu*king annoying!!!”
Tan Tan was sent flying like a missile, and knocked against an ice prism with a ‘bam’ sound. Snow flew upwards from the result of this impact. In fact, it flew over to half of the mountain top with ‘whoosh’ sounds. Then, he bumped into a big tree with ‘slam’ sound. And, a big chunk of snow fell down with rustling sound from the tree he had bumped into. Consequently, Tan Tan got buried under the snow…
“Khoff, khoff, khoff…” Tan Tan coughed as he crawled up from the pile of snow by using his hands and legs. He wanted to cry, but had no tears to shed. “What the hell is this…? I’ve been a very obedient disciple, and I have cared a lot about my master. But, he still attacked me like that… Oh heaven, I have nowhere to go…”
He sobbed twice since he felt to be wronged. He then said, “I would’ve committed suicide if I weren’t so handsome and carefree. Anyway, I don’t wish to betray the kindness of the heavens…”
He stood up while speaking this. Then, he suddenly felt somewhat hungry. So, he scratched his head and said in his heart, “Master can’t see me now. And, he won’t come back for a short while… So, I can go and attack a few spirit beasts, and eat their inner cores?”
Tan Tan stealthily turned his buttocks and looked towards the mountain top as soon as this thought crossed his mind. He was going to go in all the directions to look for spirit beasts…
However, he suddenly felt as if there was something fishy while he was walking on a section of the mountain path. He lifted his head and looked, but he only heard the whistling sound of the wind. He then saw three ghost-like shadows coming from three directions; it seemed as if they didn’t have any visible form. Moreover, they were floating towards him at an extremely fast speed.
It could be seen that these three individuals had appearances of extreme anxiety. And, they were hastening-on with their entire strengths!
Tan Tan’s scalp felt numb. He strangely cried out in his heart since he felt very miserable. [Why the fu*k did I come out at such a moment? How will I deal with these three formidable monsters? Just look at the appearance of these three monsters… I know I can’t defeat them…]
[I must run!]
Tan Tan turned around, and broke into a run!
But, a ‘whoosh’ sound came.
A red-robed man had already appeared in front of him! His eyes were deep-red, and he was tensely looking at Tan Tan. Moreover, an intense look of eagerness was reflecting from his eyes!
Tan Tan raised his head as he turned around to dash towards another direction. But, a white-robed man had already appeared in that direction, and was now standing in front of him.
So, he again turned around. But, a silver-robed man blocked his way with a ‘whoosh’ sound!
The formation of these three men had blocked all the exits for Tan Tan. And, the six eyes were flamingly looking at Tan Tan at this time.
Tan Tan’s heart became ice-cold! He couldn’t help but cuss, “A good dog doesn’t stand in the way. What are you three corpses doing here?”
It was evident that they were Tan Tan’s enemies since they had blocked his way, and weren’t letting him walk away. Moreover, he didn’t have any hope while facing such a formidable enemy. Therefore, Tan Tan decided to make an effort to cuss them to death before resigning to death…
However, Tan Tan didn’t even dare to think about informing Master Meng…
It can’t be said that it was impossible to inform Master Meng about these three people. But, Tan Tan would never do it!
[These three are strong and unfathomable. In fact, I think that Master wouldn’t be a match for them even if he comes here! It would be alright if I die. But, why should I involve the old man in this?]
[Master will still have Chu Yang if I die…. So, I think that he won’t be too heart-broken. But, Chu Yang will remain all alone if Master and I were to die… And, he will feel too lonely if that happens…]
Tan Tan’s unpleasant voice and cussing didn’t provoke them to attack him in a crazy manner. This was contrary to his expectations. Instead, those three people became somewhat astonished and uncertain, and drew back a step. Then, the three of them sized Tan Tan up; they had faint traces of excitement and doubt in their eyes.
Tan Tan was startled in his heart. [Could it be that these three men don’t have any evil intention?]
So, he thought of trying it out, “Step aside! Let me pass!”
However, nobody moved…
Tan Tan blinked and scratched his head. Then, he turned towards one of them, and rushed over to him. [Um. I will walk past from his side. None of them seem to be giving off murderous aura from their bodies; nor do they give out a feeling as if they are ready to attack. So, they should let me pass, right?]
But, he found that the white-robed man still stood in front of him when he rushed over. Tan Tan became angry when he saw this. He tried his best to go past as he shouted, “What’s the matter? Do you want to fight?”
Tan Tan grabbed the white-robed man’s collar. Then, he exerted his entire strength to lift this man… But, the man didn’t budge!
Tan Tan tried to toss him to a side… but, the man remained motionless!
He tried to push! Hit! Pull! Hold his neck and wrestle. He even tried to bite him…
Tan Tan had angrily tried out every possible method. But, that man had remained motionless. Moreover, he had remained standing as erect as before. In fact, he had stood as straight as a thousand-year-old tree. He even let Tan Tan exert his strength and try out all the methods. But, he still remained unshakable like a mountain!
Tan Tan sat down in the snowy ground. After all, he was tired. He then spoke-up in anger, “You don’t hit back when I hit you! You don’t fight back when I try to kill you! You don’t draw back if I try to push you back! Why are you blocking my way like this? Do you have nothing better to do?”
Tan Tan felt wronged after he had spoken this. [You have nothing better do, but I still feel hungry…]
However, those three people were still quietly looking at him. Moreover, they still hadn’t said a word… as if they had been neatly counting every strand of hair on Tan Tan’s body.
Tan Tan suddenly had his hair stand on end. So, he lifted his head and looked. And, he saw that there was a symbol of a radiating sun on the forehead of that red-robed man. But, it was only similar to a copper coin in size. The white-robed man had the symbol of a crescent moon in the same spot on his forehead. And, the silver-robed man had a symbol of a star on that spot!
Moreover, the red-robed man was giving off a fiery Sun-like feeling; the white-robed man was sending out a cold and gentle feeling like the Moon. And, the silver-robed man was sending out a mysterious and profound feeling like the stars…
These three individuals were quite distinct. But, all three of them had the same expressions in their eyes — excitement, doubt, fears, longing, and worry…
It seemed quite complicated!
“What are you guys up to?!” Tan Tan was angry. He shouted, “What exactly do you want? Stop your nonsense, okay? At least tell me whether you’ll let me go or not? Are you fu*king playing some trick?”
Their complexions suddenly changed a little. And, they revealed look of excitement in their eyes… at the same time…
Tan Tan was greatly surprised by this. So, he scratched his scalp and asked in a suspicious manner, “Do you guys like to get cussed? Have you stopped me because you want me to cuss at you? Sss~~~”
He sucked in cold air. Even he felt that his guess wasn’t too logical.
The four of them were left in a state of deadlock for a while. And, there remained a silent for a while. However, Tan Tan eventually couldn’t endure it. So, he started to cuss, “What exactly do you three bastards want? Why the fu*k do you want me to speak like that? Motherfu*kers, is it alright if you don’t speak anything? It won’t be good if you don’t put your nonsense away. Just fu*king say something! Are you three dead?”
The complexions of these individuals three finally changed after Tan Tan cursed out in rage. They then glanced at each other. And, each of them exposed an expression on their face that made it seem as if they wanted to speak. However, they still hesitated. In fact, it seemed as if it was difficult for them to open their mouths. It felt as if they didn’t know how to start the conversation. They felt embarrassed and awkward…
Moreover, a myriad of moods had appeared on the faces of these three individuals — fear, fright, expectation, fanaticism, worry about gains and losses… In fact, it felt like these three were performing dramatic change of attitude and expressions for a moment.
The only expression they didn’t expose after getting cussed… was that of anger!
Moreover, these three were clearly urging each other with their eyes…
[You speak first!]
[No, you speak first!]
[No, it’s better that you speak first.]
Tan Tan became confused. He noticed that these three wanted to speak but weren’t able to. In fact, it was clear that they had a thousand words to say. But, they still weren’t able to say a single word. Tan Tan suddenly felt his blood run cold. A frightening guess took control of his heart, and he nearly pissed his pants. [Is it possible that these three saw me… found me handsome… and fell in love with me?]
Tan Tan’s face turned ashen as soon as this thought crossed his mind. [Fu*k me! You are men! This is highly unacceptable for me.]
“Hey…” Tan Tan shivered and said, “Don’t tell me… you three have fallen in love with me?”
The three of them looked at each other, and their faces turned gloomy.
