Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 75 Step-by-Step Revelation
After listening to Tie Long Cheng’s story, the young lady’s stared deeply into Chu Yang’s eyes, with her gaze as sharp as a sword.
Tie Long Cheng took a deep breath and continued, “As soon as I heard the three words ‘Heavenly Armament Pavilion’, the first thing that came to my head was the people who died in the wars and left their dead bodies on the battlefields! Do you have any idea how many people died in anguish in front of my very eyes? They were all Iron Cloud’s heroes!”
It was then that Chu Yang finally understood why such a high ranking guest would come all the way here personally and even gave the order to blockade his shop. He thought, “My actions must have unintentionally reopened his old wounds!”
Although Tie Long Cheng appeared relatively composed, Chu Yang could sense that this famed general was filled with sorrow and agony!
Chu Yang was aware that Iron Cloud was in dire need of blacksmiths. Many weapons were purchased from Limitless Nation at exorbitant prices. However, he had not expected this to be all part of a greater inhumane scheme by Diwu Qing Rou!
“General Tie is indeed the wisest!” Chu Yang let out a smile.
“If that’s the case, are you admitting that you are a spy sent by Diwu Qing Rou?”
“Admit?” Chu Yang continued, “Why would I adopt such a blatant method to spy if I were indeed working for Diwu Qing Rou?”
Tie Long Cheng fixed his eyes on Chu Yang, before continuing coldly, “Every action must have their own respective reason.”
“Is the reason that I dislike Diwu Qing Rou good enough?” Chu Yang smiled again. All of a sudden, he sprinted to the main door in a flash. With a phenomenal speed, he charged at and attacked one of the four guards standing outside the door, without any warning. Just a moment ago, he was smiling and conversing with Tie Long Cheng; but in the blink of an eye, his fist had almost come into contact with the guard’s throat.
The guard turned his body in distress while the other three withdrew their swords. The three swords were pointed towards Chu Yang like venomous vipers springing at their enemy.
All four were experts and worked in tandem with one another. When one of them was attacked, the other three retaliated at the same time!
Chu Yang chuckled as his arm suddenly sprung out. His bare hand went straight for the shining blades that the soldiers wielded.
Bam… Bam… Bam… Three sounds rang. All the witnesses were unable to believe what had just happened in front of their very eyes.
Upon touching the guards’ swords with his hand, the swords that had eliminated countless enemies were instantly broken into two!
The guards’ eyes were filled with a hint of savagery when they noticed that Chu Yang was using his bare hand to fight against their swords. They were so certain that Chu Yang’s hand would be crushed like minced meat. Never would they have expected that their swords were actually the ones that got chopped up upon contact with his hand!
None of the witnesses thought that such a thing could happen. Everyone was frozen in shock at that very moment. Chu Yang’s hand came to a stop at the throat of the guard that he had approached earlier. Chu Yang gently pinched his Adam’s apple.
In an instant, Chu Yang was suddenly back in front of Tie Long Cheng.
The four Revered Martial Artist Masters gazed at Chu Yang with great terror in their eyes! A man had just used his hand against their extremely sharp swords and to their horror, their swords were in halves instead!
Was he even human?
In particular, the guard who was pinched by Chu Yang was in such trauma that his body had turned ice cold. Had his opponent used just a little more force, his Adam’s apple would have been crushed.
Tie Long Cheng had accused Chu Yang of being a spy and Chu Yang was unable to prove his innocence!
In such a situation, the most effective and appropriate explanation was through brute force!
“There is also another reason, and it is so that I can easily assassinate you! Is that a good enough reason? Also…” Chu Yang smiled and picked up a fragment of the broken swords from the ground. Subsequently, he used his own sword to shave it like a knife through a carrot, “This is a divine weapon. Is that enough reason?”
Suddenly, everyone stared at Chu Yang with great surprise in their eyes.
“Assassinate me, hahaha… you think it’s that easy? You cannot kill me on your own. Although you are certainly confident in your own abilities, there are some things in this world where confidence alone is not enough. Of course, you disliking Diwu Qing Rou is a good enough reasons for me.” Tie Long Cheng gazed at Chu Yang with his hawk eyes for a moment before smiling, “The other two reasons are not important!”
After a short pause, he continued, “Good kid!”
Tie Long Cheng was surprised when Chu Yang had displayed such fearsome strength, but he was not frightened. Tie Long Cheng knew that he would not be so gentle if Chu Yang had wanted to attack him.
Chu Yang was able to display such power because he had borrowed his power from the Nine Tribulations Sword. He simply could not fail after having brought the tip of the Nine Tribulation Sword to his hand! At the very instant that his hand came into contact with the guards’ swords, the Nine Tribulations Sword had absorbed all of their essences!
Hence, Chu Yang was essentially just touching tiny scraps of metal!
If not for the Nine Tribulations Sword, Chu Yang would not have been able to cut these swords like they were mud, even if he had used swords that were forged from fine iron. Moreover, the swords that the four guards wielded were most definitely not ordinary weapons! While they might not be divine weapons, their quality was sure to exceed that of ordinary swords to a large extent.
Hence, as expected, Tie Long Cheng’s subordinates were taken aback!
“I want to know your true motive!” Tie Long Cheng exclaimed with a great assertiveness!
“True motive…” Chu Yang pondered for a moment, “Diwu Qing Rou and I truly do not have any blood debt, but I simply do not wish for him to win this war. Also, I certainly do not wish that he would achieve his goal of unifying all under the heavens.”
Because of Tie Long Cheng’s blockade, Chu Yang had no chance of meeting Tie Bu Tian. However, Tie Long Cheng had appeared here on his own accord. Although he had mentioned that he was blockading Chu Yang’s house, little did he know that he was giving Chu Yang an opportunity by showing up at his place.
Chu Yang had already demonstrated his power and flaunted his wealth. What was left was to show off his wisdom. Essentially, seeing Tie Long Cheng’s reaction was indirectly seeing Tie Bu Tian’s reaction.
“I am sure that no one here wants Diwu Qing Rou’s goals to be achieved!” Tie Long Cheng displayed a faint smile on his face. Chu Yang’s demonstration of his power appeared to have somewhat put Tie Long Cheng at ease.
Chu Yang beamed and said, “At this juncture, all of Iron Cloud wishes to defeat Diwu Qing Rou. However, everyone is deluded if we were to consider all the aspects of this war. Iron Cloud has absolutely no means to succeed in defeating him!”
“Based on what grounds?” Spoke the young lady this time around. Tie Long Cheng let out a faint and cold smile but remained quiet. Moments ago, he was stern and ferocious. Now, however, he appeared to be listening attentively.
“Firstly, Diwu Qing Rou is extremely powerful because he is backed by Great Zhao’s strong military of about six million soldiers! Famed generals that are ranked second to seventh are all from Great Zhao and each one of them are talented beyond this world. Iron Cloud, on the other hand, has only two famed generals that are ranked first and tenth. I’m sure that we all know that this ranking is not just for show. All the generals in these positions have been through uncountable life and death situations! Each famed general must have bathed his blade in the blood of more than hundreds of thousands of lives!”
Chu Yang thought quickly and yanked out his knowledge from his previous life, “Secondly, even though Great Zhao has an emperor sitting at the throne, the harsh reality is that all the power is in Diwu Qing Rou’s hands! Furthermore, Diwu Qing Rou’s spy network is many times more extensive than that of Iron Cloud! There is a huge talent pool within the Golden Horse Riders Department although it has never shown itself. Moreover, there are elite fighters that number approximately eight thousand!”
This information struck Tie Long Cheng and the young lady like lightning!
“Golden Horse Riders Department? How did you find out about the Golden Horse Riders Department as well? Tie Long Cheng’s thick eyebrows came into contact as he waved a signal with his hand. He appeared extremely guarded.
Instantly, the soldiers outside retreated by more than a hundred feet. The entire street was silent. Aside from the bodyguards, there was not a single shadow within the hundred feet radius. Suddenly, swooshing sounds came from the roof while countless master simultaneously appeared. This brought the entire room under tight security.
Heavenly Armament Pavilion was now under such tight security that even a mosquito would not be able to enter. This clearly showed how important such information was to Tie Long Cheng.
However, it was puzzling that the young lady, who clearly had no business with such grave national matters, was not sent away by Tie Long Cheng. On the contrary, it appeared that he approved of her presence.
Chu Yang’s eyes gleamed as he thought, “It seems like this young lady must be in a great position. My previous guess that she was just someone of royal blood is not quite accurate. This young lady must be either a princess or the king’s favorite wife…”
