Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 724 Proclaiming My Love as We Face Death
Young Master Yu smiled and said, “If that’s the case, the Li Clan will fall into your trap… However, you should do something about the Xiao Clan too… I’ll be a lot happier if I can see them panicking like headless chickens.”
Mo Tian Ji said in shock, “But the Xiao Clan can’t compare to the Li Clan.”
Young Master Yu’s eyes narrowed as he said, “I’m not asking you to take care of them now. When you have the chance, take care of them. If you don’t have the chance to do so, make the opportunity for yourself.”
Chu Yang and Mo Tian Ji looked at each other. They did not know how to react.
At the same time, Chu Yang’s heart stirred. Mo Tian Ji’s trick was ingenious indeed. However, he was able to deftly make use of Young Master Yu!
Furthermore, in the Middle Three Heavens, only two people knew that he was the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword: Mo Tian Ji and Young Master Yu. Mo Tian Ji was able to find Young Master Yu too!
How did Mo Tian Ji know that Young Master Yu know that he was the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword?
After he took care of this, Mo Tian Ji said, “Brother Chu, the next fight will be among the Martial Kings. Do you mind taking charge of our side?”
Chu Yang nodded his head and said, “Fine!”
This was the fight that they were the most confident of winning.
Among the brothers, Gu Du Xing and Ji Mo were both Martial Emperors. Chu Yang was supposed to become a Martial Emperor but because of the restrictions placed on him by the Nine Tribulations Sword, he could not enter it. He remained as a Grade 9 Martial King.
Furthermore, Ji Mo, Luo Ke Di, Xie Dan Qiong, Rui Bu Tong, Ao Xie Yun, and Tan Tan were all Grade 9 Martial Kings. They were just a step away from becoming Martial Emperors.
Hence, this was the fight where most of them would take part.
Chu Yang was the best person to command this fight.
Naturally, Mo Tian Ji also deliberately wanted to protect Chu Yang. Of course, Chu Yang deserved this title too.
This arrangement had its benefits too. Most importantly, it would make it harder for the Nine Great Clans to guess who was the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword. Who would have expected him to take part in a fight among Martial Kings?
No matter what, he should be used as a trump card, right?
“Be careful,” said Mo Tian Ji.
“I’ll take a look at Wu Shang,” said Chu Yang with a nod. He walked into the tent. At this moment, Dong Wu Shang’s wounds were already wrapped up. He also ate a Nine Heavens Pill. He should be fine.
In this time, Mo Tian Ji had collected all of the medicines from the clans. While they were ostensibly meant to facilitate the control of these high-grade medicines, Chu Yang actually took them all.
Everyone knew that this battle concerned life and death. Any injury may determine their fate and hence, they all took out their best medications. The medicines here could be said to be the absolute best.
Easily, they were able to find many incomplete Nine Heavens Pill.
Just as he was about to enter, he heard someone’s protest. “Don’t move… you! How can guys and girls act like this in front of one another? Why are you taking off my clothes?”
“If I don’t take off your clothes, how can I apply medicines for you?”
“Why can’t it be someone else, like a guy?”
“I don’t trust others. A man’s hand is rough and big. It makes me worried.”
“However, I can’t relax with you around…”
“Why can’t you relax? I’m a girl and I’m not scared.”
“It’s exactly because you’re a girl which scares me.”
“What are you scared of?”
“Don’t… don’t come over!”
“Good boy, don’t move.”
“Don’t come over. If you come, I’ll scream…”
“Scream then! Even if you scream your throat out, no one will care about you!”
“Help! Save me!” Dong Wu Shang shouted.
Chu Yang held his stomach as he stood near the entrance. His entire body was doubled up.
He looked in via the half-opened door and saw Dong Wu Shang grabbing his belt tightly with one hand. His other hand was holding his shirt and he had a look of panic on his face.
Mo Lei Er rested one of her hands on his shoulder, which held medicines within it. With her other hand, she was trying to take off his top.
When he saw Chu Yang coming in such an awkward fashion, Dong Wu Shang seemed to have seen his savior. “Boss, save me!”
Chu Yang coughed non-stop.
Then, he said, “I’m coming!”
He reached forward and pulled off Dong Wu Shang’s clothes. He shrieked and said, “Get… get out, you…”
Chu Yang said, “Start!”
Mo Lei Er chuckled and helped Dong Wu Shang bandage his wounds. As rolls of bandage slowly covered his wound, Dong Wu Shang looked dazed. His entire body was stiff and he did not move. When Mo Lei Er’s gentle hand touched his rough skin, he even shuddered…
Chu Yang found it hilarious. He never expected Dong Wu Shang, who was so heroic and manly most of the time, to be so conservative and shy in front of women.
He seemed to care more about it than a girl.
Quickly, she finished bandaging him and Chu Yang took out an incomplete Nine Heavens Pill and shoved it in Dong Wu Shang’s mouth. He suppressed a laugh and said, “It’s fine.” Then, he scampered.
He completely ignored Dong Wu Shang’s tomato-red face.
By bandaging Dong Wu Shang, everyone could see that his injuries were severe. No one knew how serious his internal injuries were. They would not suspect the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword.
Right now, with the Nine Great Clans and the Enforcers present, Chu Yang did not dare to be careless.
Mo Lei Er found it hilarious. As a man, why was he so awkward and shy? However, her heart trembled as she looked at Dong Wu Shang. Then, she felt jolted.
Suddenly, she realized how valuable this man was!
In front of enemies, he was brazen, heroic, and a fierce fighter. However, when it came to matters of love, he was so shy and reserved. He was extremely conservative. “No wonder he reacted so strongly when I said that…”
“He really is…”
“Wu Shang…” Mo Lei Er looked at Dong Wu Shang and asked.
“What’s the matter?” Dong Wu Shang hurriedly put on his clothes as he replied with a red face.
“You’re so predictable…”
As expected, Dong Wu Shang’s face blushed once more.
On the other side, Tian Bu Hui was discussing with the Black Devil. “Senior, where’s Brother Black? I haven’t seen him in quite a while. Where did he go?”
The Black Devil replied coldly, “He’s in the shadows. You won’t expect an assassin from the Black Devil to fight head-on, right?”
Tian Bu Hui sighed and said, “What a shame! I hoped that he could lead the Martial Kings in his fight. With his talent, we’ll surely win this fight.”
The Black Devil leered at him and said darkly, “Do you want him to die?”
Tian Bui Hui said plainly, “Since this is a fight, how can anyone not be injured? However, we definitely won’t lose this fight!”
The Black Devil snorted and said, “He found his spot and he planned to deal a devastating strike. Right now, make your arrangements. The Black Devils will work with you.”
Tian Bu Hui replied with a smile and walked off. In his heart, he seethed with hatred as he said, “If I don’t exterminate your entire family here…”
“Let the fight begin!”
The old Enforcer with a white beard issued this order. Then, he sighed.
He could clearly see that in this fight, the families of the Three Middle Heavens had sent all their forces! Evidently, all of the elites were here!
With his status, this fight was too trivial for him to command. However, when he saw the many young Martial Kings, he could not help but sigh.
What a shame!
Some of them were younger than 20. They were full of potential.
“Round 1, Martial Kings!”
When he said these four words, a wolf’s howl could be heard from the other side. “Oooooh! It’s finally my turn!”
Luo Ke Di laughed and he was visibly excited.
Ji Mo wanted to howl back too. However, just as he started his howl, Huyan Aobo grabbed his ear and what was supposed to be a majestic howl became w a whimper.
Huyan Aobo did not step back. Instead, she took a step forward and stood next to Ji Mo. She was half an elbow away from him. This was where a wife stood next to her man.
“I’ll fight with you! No matter whether we die or live!”
She did not say anything but by taking this step, she was announcing to the world that they were one! They would live and die together!
As a woman, she did not need to take part in this fight. She could just wait it out, but she did not do that.
Ji Mo’s face blushed. A wave of emotions rushed over his heart and his eyes shone like crystals. He reached out with his hand and held Huyan Aobo’s hand.
When the two of them stood together, they felt that in this world, no one could separate them!
Rui Bu Tong and Tan Tan looked at each other and stepped forward.
“Don’t forget about me!” Xie Dan Feng tried to squeeze her way to Tan Tan’s side.
“Get back!” Tan Tan ordered.
“No!” Xie Dan Feng looked at him determinedly.
Four eyes met. None wanted to give way.
“I want to follow you,” said Xie Dan Feng as she bit her lips. “If I live, what I’ll experience will be more painful than what you’ll go through. I know all these… but I still want to be with you.”
“If we die, we will be spared the agony of choice. However, if we live, I’ll enter your heart, in case… in case you change and forget…”
Xie Dan Feng said dreamily, “I like… I like the way you protect me. I want to experience it once more.” She paused for a while and then, shouted with all her might.
Her shrill voice pierced the clouds and reverberated in the skies!
“Tan Tan! If I, Xie Dan Feng, don’t die in this fight, I’ll marry you and become your wife! I’ll give you children! I’ll cook and clean for you! For you, I’m willing to do anything!”
She shouted one more time, “For you, I’m ready to do anything!”
This was a resilient and beautiful woman. She proclaimed her love in front of her enemies, allies, in front of the spectators of the Nine Great Clans, in front of the Enforcers, in front of the eternal heaven and earth, in front of the timeless skies!
She abandoned her usual reserved self and proclaimed her love!
This was her most sincere wish, her deepest desire, her most solemn promise, and her most precious heart. She had no intention to hide them as she revealed them in front of everyone!
In her eyes, there was no shame!
If you live, I’ll accompany you! If you die, I’ll accompany you! When you struggle, I’ll accompany you! No matter what, I’ll be with you!
All I ever wanted is to be in your heart. Let me in!
In front of everything, I will still say, ‘I love you.’
This is my love.
Even if the Demon King awakens on you, even if the Heavenly Emperor rebirths onto you, even if you are no longer you!
Don’t you dare forget me!
Tan Tan’s eyes turned red.
