Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 66 Gu Du Xing!
“Yes, in the southeast.” The blue clothed man was taken aback by the Prince’s reaction. How could an army that’s mobilized thousands of miles away affect Iron Cloud?
“Inform the generals and military affairs ministers to be here tomorrow afternoon for a meeting.” Tie Bu Tian pinched his brow and said in a serious tone, “Great Zhao’s mobilization is definitely something out of the ordinary this time. Command Bu Tian Pavilion Intelligence to gather information regarding this matter immediately. Report back once there is news!”
“Deliver this news to Imperial Uncle Long Cheng.” Tie Bu Tian added, “He should be informed of the situation since he has come out. Nonetheless, he should still be in the loop even if he hadn’t come out. However, he still needs to let me know that he knows.” This all came out like a tongue twister and Tie Bu Tian began to smile as he spoke.
“Yes.” The blue clothed man’s eyes suddenly lit up.
Tie Long Cheng was Tie Bu Tian’s uncle, the first royalty beneath Iron Cloud’s Emperor. He was not just a prince of a royal household that was lavishly cared for, but also a general! And he was a famous one at that!
He was ranked first amongst the continent’s great generals! He was undefeatable and invincible!
Iron Cloud’s entire military was restructured by him to become as strong as a steel plate! Iron Cloud Nation’s survival for such a long time is not only attributed to Tie Bu Tian’s impressive skills, but also thanks to Tie Long Cheng’s immense power and abilities as a general.
Two people – one from the inside and with the pen, while the other was from the outside and with the sword – merged into one to become the greatest weapon to deter Diwu Qing Rou!
As the arrangements had been made, Tie Bu Tian waved gently and said, “You may leave now. You’ve worked hard.”
“Yes. Your subordinate will leave now.” The blue clothed man left quietly.
“Southeast… Diwu Qing Rou, do you really want to start a war?” Tie Bu Tian took his thoughts off the matter as he took in a deep breath. There were other things to deal with at this point in time. To be specific, it was Heavenly Armament Pavilion.
“Heavenly Armament Pavilion…” a flame within Tie Bu Tian’s heart began to burn as he read out these three words one by one. It couldn’t be empty boasts for such a man to have such an ability.
These weapons might not have much use for regular soldiers. However, such divine weapons were urgently needed for Bu Tian Pavilion which Tie Bu Tian had set up single-handedly.
This was because a considerable part of the organization were Dead Warriors! And another part were killers who were carefully trained by Iron Cloud’s royal family for years!
With a divine weapon in hand, one could increase his chance of killing a target by a few percentages! It would be sufficient for Tie Bu Tian to pay good money for a divine weapon even if only increased the chance by a tenth! However, good things never come easy in life.
Iron Cloud Nation had numerous iron mines. Even so, Iron Cloud was always lacking in high-grade weapons.
Furthermore, such a divine weapon was never before seen and only existed within legends.
Yet, someone had actually opened a ‘Heavenly Armament Court’ here?
Tie Bu Tian decided that he would go to have a look for himself, regardless if the news was true or not.
An assassin was a Dead Warrior!
People have confused assassins with killers for a long time. However, this was a big mistake. Although assassins and killers have the same purpose of killing their enemies, their processes differed.
Death must result once an assassin makes his move. If the death of the target is not assured, then the assassin must die. One can only make the move to kill his target by putting his own life on the line. An assassin’s fate was to die whether or not the target death was guaranteed.
Therefore, assassins would often sneak into an enemy’s heavily guarded locations to conduct assassinations. They had to see their death as forthcoming once their move had been made, regardless of their success. Hence, as an assassin was often called a Dead Warrior!
However, a killer was different. He would flee and slowly look for new opportunities to strike if he were to be unsuccessful. His priority was to protect himself first, followed by killing the enemy. There was certainly a fundamental difference between the two! Thus, there would only be a ranking system for killers and not assassins if such rankings existed in the world. This is because an assassin cannot be ranked. An assassin would become a walking dead man once he chose to become an assassin.
“You may find it very strange.” The youth’s eyes were full of affection and reluctance as he stroke the blade gently. He continued, “Black Dragon is a good sword. It should be cherished and treated with care by anyone who has the chance to own it. Pawn shops? I’ve already visited a few of those. Those people were all blind to my sword! It would be insulting to my Black Dragon if I had pawned my sword to any of them!”
“Forgive my bluntness.” Chu Yang said softly, “Your skill mustn’t be weak for you to own such a sword. Gold and silver should be inconsequential for you, whether through armed robbery or thieving in the night. Why must you pawn your beloved sword?”
“What kind of talk is this?” The youth appeared to be greatly insulted. He stood up instantly and said angrily, “Would I, Gu Du Xing, do such a thing?”
Gu Du Xing!
Chu Yang’s heart skipped a beat. At once, his eyes were wide opened and he stared at him.
So it’s him!
Memories of his past life suddenly came flooding through his head. Gu Du Xing was the heir of the Middle Three Heaven’s Gu family. He was an outstanding talent among the younger generation. Rumor has it that Gu Du Xing was called ‘Sword Addict’ as a child. His obsession with the sword was innate. He had become a Sword Pupil at the age of three, a Sword Warrior at seven, a Sword Master at only the age of thirteen. He then went on to become a Great Sword Master at eighteen and a Revered Sword Artist at age twenty-one! He was already Ninth Grade Sword King by the age of thirty-three! He became the youngest person to attempt and achieved the real of Sword Emperor of all time!
Such a great cultivation speed was only achievable by incredible legends.
Within the Middle Three Heavens, Gu Du Xing had created a generation of myths and legends.
In the entire Mid-heavens, perhaps only the generation’s Evil Young Master Ao Xie Yun could compare with respect to such achievements! Gu Du Xing and Ao Xie Yun were idolized by all the youths in Middle Three Heavens!
Gu Du Xing was someone that even Chu Yang, the ‘Poisonous Sword Revered Martial Artist’, looked up to in his past life! Chu Yang’s determination to reach his peak was largely due to the influence of this genius!
However, Chu Yang would never have imagined that the Soaring Dragon Sword King of his past life could fall to such a low point to even consider pawning his beloved sword!
This… How would one put this into words?
It was no wonder that the name of this Black Dragon Sword seemed so familiar when he had heard it, for it turned out to be the legend himself!
The 12 famed people of the time in the Mid-Heavens, “He Mo (Black Devil), An Zhu (Dark Bamboo), Gu Du Ke (Lone Traveler), Du Sha (Poison Spirit), Tian Ji (Heavenly Secret), Li Xiong Tu (Strict Aggression), Mo Dao (Black Saber), Qian Hao (One Thousand Talents), Xie Gong Zi (Evil Young Master), Meng Luo (Dream Fall), Qiong Hua (Jade Flower), Tian Bu Ru (Heaven Cannot Compare)”
These twelve people dominated all of the Middle Three Heavens. Each and everyone one of them was an expert beyond this world and geniuses among geniuses.
Gu Du Ke was within this group as Young Master Gu, Gu Du Xing!
Chu Yang slanted his eyes and began doing some calculations while looking at this future legend who would journey the Middle Three Heavens. Judging from his appearance, he was only around 20 years old and has yet to achieve Revered Sword Artist. However, he must have reached the level of Great Sword Master and at his peak!
This… this is a meat pie falling from the heavens. F***, heaven sent me such a powerful man while he is so poor which is so rare. Of course, what’s rarer is that I have never been this rich…
Nonetheless, there were some questions in Chu Yang’s heart. How did a Great Sword Master reach this point? A Great Sword Master… pawning his beloved sword? What sorcery was this?
However, Gu Du Xing was the same legend from his past life – just, firm and upright.
Gu Du Xing would traverse the world alone in his lifetime. One of the best things about him was that all he obtained were through legitimate work.
Absolutely no part of his wealth was obtained questionably!
The whole of the Middle Three Heavens, including his enemies, even praised him as a good man at one point!
