Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 741 Soliciting
Mo Tian Ji squinted his eyes and shouted, “I won’t say anything now…however, years later…you’ll understand what it means to have an entire forest sheltering you when you are about to die from the sun by planting a tree now!”
Chu Yang gently smiled, “I can think of a forest. However, it’s not a long-term solution for you to keep over-drafting yourself. If your body can’t hang on anymore, you’ll be dragging us down with you.”
Mo Tian Ji revealed a warm smile on his face, “Absolutely not! Controlling the World – everyone knows that Xiao Feng Yun was the one who created this idea. However, after this period of research and study, I realized that there’s endless stuff to be learned!”
He blinked his eyes and said, “Since we are able to exchange our own longevity to make forecasts of fate, we’ll be able to use similar methods to regain what we’ve lost.”
“I believe that elder Xiao Feng Yun became so impressive because he had this Controlling the World.
Chu Yang suddenly recalled.
Xiao Feng Yun was one of the wisest from his generation. His cultivation only took off during his twenties. He corrected his own mental cultivation methods and managed to become a Reverend Martial Artist in the Lower Three Heavens. After this, he charged until the Middle Three Heavens. He created his own techniques and charged all the way through the Three Heavens!
Any rubbish technique could become magical in his hands!
His greatest achievement was reaching the level of a Grade 9 Martial Monarch!
However, he managed to reach such a level from his own hard work and he only took ninety years!
Although his surname was Xiao, he wasn’t from the Xiao Clan of the Three Heavens!
Furthermore, the most unbelievable thing was that he managed to make his mark even though he was only a Grade 9 Martial Monarch. Even the Nine Great Clans acknowledged his greatness!
Before this, Chu Yang always thought that it was impossible to rise to the level of a Martial Monarch.
However, as he experienced more things, he slowly realized that being a Martial Monarch wasn’t considered very impressive in the Three Heavens!
However, why was Xiao Feng Yun able to become so dominant in the Three Heavens even though he was just a Martial Monarch?
It was an unsolved mystery even until now.
Mo Tian Ji looked at Chu Yang’s expression and couldn’t help but laugh and said, “Xiao Feng Yun solely relies on his intelligence in his entire life! Before he made his mark in the Three Heavens, he never once directly clashed with others. However, whoever proactively tried to fight him would soon realize that they were embroiled in conflicts with other families in the Three Heavens.”
“Everything seems to be going his way, but he doesn’t seem to rely on anyone or anything. He also seems to have gained a lot of knowledge throughout his entire life. Eventually, he created a situation where all the families depended on him! There was a delicate balance formed and no one dared to touch him. However, after he died, everything that he owned was immediately divided!”
Mo Tian Ji sighed deeply and said, “However, because of the complex knowledge he possessed, his Controlling the World is still stuck at the level of Grade 9 Martial Monarchs!”
“He is miraculous!” Chu Yang was in awe. Suddenly, his eyes brightened, and he said, “Doesn’t this mean that you are like Xiao Feng Yun? Considering that you are able to infer stuff from any type of martial technique?”
Mo Tian Ji laughed bitterly as he shook his head.
“I’m different from Xiao Feng Yun. I’m not interested in chess, zither, paintings, poems, wine and tea like him.”
“I most interested in strategies, heavenly will, fate, Yin-Yang and the Heaven and Earth! Although they sound like they are a lot, they can be summarized into one category – destiny!”
Mo Tian Ji calmly said, “This is also the direction that I’m working towards right now! As for martial arts, I originally didn’t have such great interest in it. However, I’ll cultivate a little after this battle. This is because if my cultivation is higher and my martial arts are good enough, I’ll make improvements in my ability to make forecasts of heavenly will!”
“Xiao Feng Yun only realized that he had forgotten his roots after possessing the Controlling the World for sixty years. He regretted instantly. However, he wasn’t able to make any significant progress in any other field anymore!”
“Mo Tian Ji sighed, “I also felt regretful when I saw what Xiao Feng Yun left behind. He possesses such a destiny, but he didn’t have the fortune to enjoy it.”
“This is why I decided to forgo other miscellaneous disciplines.”
Chu Yang said, “But you know that martial arts is the main pillar. Why…”
“Because I didn’t have any time!” Mo Tian Ji wore a bitter look in his eyes. “Under pressure by Mo Tian Yun, I struggled to survive. Under such a circumstance, I could only learn how to survive.”
“But you came just after Mo Tian Yun died. I had no choice but to rack my brains to think of how to survive for you and for us.”
He chortled, “However, the Middle Three Heavens is basically peaceful now. That’s why I can cultivate and control the Mo Clan at the same time! So you don’t have to worry about me. Perhaps I might even reach the peak of martial arts before all of you!”
“That will be great!” Chu Yang was relieved.
He didn’t ask what Controlling the World was, but he trusted Mo Tian Ji.
It didn’t matter whether he asked or not.
Just like the Nine Tribulations Sword, Mo Tian Ji couldn’t wield it no matter how clever he was. Chu Yang might not be able to possess the Controlling the World even if he wanted to.
The most important thing was that it didn’t matter whether it belonged to Mo Tian Ji or Chu Yang.
They were working toward the same goal!
Furthermore, only someone as intelligent as Mo Tian Ji could unleash the potential of Controlling the World!
In the night, Mo Tian Ji individually went to find Ji Mo, Gu Du Xing and the rest for private conversations. When dawn was almost arriving, he had a secret conversation with Young Master Yu. He then finally accounted to Mo Lei’er.
Mo Lei’er was initially a little unwilling. She wanted to stay behind to take care of her father. However, Mo Tian Ji said something that made her relieved and obedient towards his wishes.
This left Chu Yang very depressed. How much did the Black Devil sacrifice for his daughter? Mo Lei’er was extremely anxious for her father. Evidently, she felt that her life depended on his.
They definitely shared a very close relationship!
Mo Lei’er wouldn’t leave her father no matter what. She wouldn’t be relieved to leave him behind.
However, what did Mo Tian Ji say such that she was willing to follow Dong Wu Shang?
Chu Yang posed this question to himself, and he knew he wasn’t capable of doing something like this.
He asked Mo Tian Ji how he did it, but Mo Tian Ji only smiled without replying. He only said, “It’s a heavenly secret that can’t be revealed.”
Chu Yang shot him a disgruntled look.
After Chu Yang and the rest woke up, they tidied things up and quickly walked over.
The battle over here had already concluded. It was time that they returned.
Of course, apart from the Li Clan, no other family managed to achieve their goal.
Who was the sword master of the Nine Tribulations Sword?
There were only two possibilities – Gu Du Xing and Dong Wu Shang.
However, Dong Wu Shang was the Saber Sovereign. How could the sword master of the Nine Tribulations Sword possibly be the Saber Sovereign? That’s why he was removed as a possibility.
As for Gu Duxing, he was the…Sword Emperor.
Everyone knew that the sword master of the Nine Tribulations Sword couldn’t simply be the Sword Emperor although the Sword Emperor appeared because of the Nine Tribulations Sword!
The Sword Emperor needed to be focused on his cultivation so that he could succeed.
However, the sword master of the Nine Tribulations Sword had always been farsighted and complex in his thinking. He was much more scheming than the smartest individual from the Zhuge Clan. How could such a person possibly be the Sword Emperor?
This was why Gu Du Xing was also eliminated as a possibility.
As for the rest…they even seemed more unlikely.
The Hades King was suspected too. However, his performance in this battle wasn’t too outstanding. Furthermore, from his appearance, he didn’t seem to be a leader in the group he was in.
He competed in the battle.
Since when did the past generations of sword masters of the Nine Tribulations Sword act in this manner? Which one of them was willing to be under someone else?
Furthermore, the Nine Great Clans would instantly be able to recognize the sword master of the Nine Tribulations Sword the moment he made a move, no matter how much he tried to change his swordplay! Although Chu Yang’s swordplay was very sharp and deadly, it wasn’t at the level of the Nine Tribulations Sword yet!
Furthermore, Chu Yang seemed to be very familiar with his swordplay technique. Evidently, he had used it many times.
This made it even more impossible.
Hence, Mo Tian Ji was suspected again.
However, what was there to suspect about Mo Tian Ji? Mo Tian Ji was a commander!
This was why those from the Nine Great Clans and Enforcers were stunned.
There were already a few who locked their attention on Li Xiong Tu, whom Li Ba Tian brought.
“Perhaps this fellow is one of the nine tribulations of the sword master of the Nine Tribulations Sword?”
This issue was a little convoluted. Initially, Chu Yang and the rest were a little doubted. However, he had a private discussion with Mo Tian Ji that day and held very strong, preconceived notions! They completely eliminated everyone from their side as ‘suspects’.
Right now, all the families suspected Li Xiong Tu. Naturally, they neglected Li Xiong Tu’s enemies. How could the comrades of the sword master of the Nine Tribulations possibly cut each other’s throats?
This was a laughing stock.
After Li Xiong Tu went unconscious that night, Li Ba Tian didn’t wake him up after discovering that the entire Li Clan was dead. If he turned suicidal after waking up, Li Ba Tian wouldn’t be able to control things on his own.
In addition, he was here this time to receive the entire clan. However, only one person was left now. He wasn’t able to account for this loss when he returned. If Li Xiong Tu got into trouble, he would be in deeper trouble.
“You are Gu Du Xing? Master of the Gu Clan in the Middle Three Heavens?” The white-bearded elder appeared very friendly as he looked at Gu Du Xing. No one else dared to solicit unless an Enforcer opened his mouth.
Gu Du Xing was already prepared and respectfully acknowledged him.
“Are you interested in returning with me to the Three Heavens?” The white-bearded elder asked in a friendly manner. “Given your qualities, your potential is wasted in the Middle Three Heavens. If you return with me and accept a famous teacher, your swordplay technique will reach new heights.”
Gu Du Xing immediately turned red, as if he was very agitated. However, he soon turned pale, as if he thought of something. However, everyone could tell that he was hesitating and that he was conflicted. It was as if he was struggling great psychologically. After a long while, he arduously said, “I would really like to go, but I can’t go temporarily because of some personal reasons.”
He seemed to be very conflicted when he made this decision. However, he still said, “But I’ll proceed to the Three Heavens after I settle my matters here! When that time comes, I hope that you can watch out for me.”
The white-bearded elder thought for a moment, “Things are easier to handle with his promise.” He could tell that Gu Du Xing was leaving a path for himself.
“I understand. After all, the Three Heavens is the dream of all martial artists!” The white-bearded elder nodded his head generously. He became more and more friendly and took out a piece of purplish, crystalline token before saying, “Du Xing, you can find me using this token when you come to the Three Heavens. No matter what issues you have, I’ll help you to settle them.”
By calling Gu Du Xing without mentioning his surname, it showed that the white-bearded elder felt closer to Gu Du Xing.
