Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 768 Verification
Chu Fei Long laughed. He took a step in and said, “Eldest sister-in-law, I’m here to visit.” Before entering the room, he had to announce his arrival first.
After all, this was the internal courtyard of his elder brother and the territory of his sister-in-law.
“Get your ass in here now!” Chu Xiong Cheng shouted furiously.
Chu Fei Long was shocked. He didn’t expect his father to arrive before him, and he even made a clown face at Chu Fei Ling and Chu Fei Yan. He softly complained, “The two of you are really ‘good’. You let me make a fool out of myself while the Old Master is here…”
After he finished speaking, he shook his head and walked into the room with a bitter smile on his face.
Chu Fei Ling sighed.
Chu Fei Yan’s doubts were immediately swept aside. He laughed as he said, “Number two, you are going to be in deep trouble this time…”
Chu Fei Ling snorted.
When Chu Fei Long entered the room, he immediately spotted a passionate pair of eyes glaring at him. His neck couldn’t help but shrink and he dryly laughed, “Father, eldest sister-in-law…”
“You rascal!” Chu Xiong Cheng was furious, but he couldn’t bring himself to rage. After all, Chu Fei Long’s words could be taken as words of concern. However, it was also possible to take his words wrongly.
Chu Fei Long gently took in a breath and said, “Indeed, he’s a talented young man. It’s a pity…father, do you have a plan in mind?”
Chu Xiong Cheng was angry as he replied, “If I had a plan in mind, do you think I’ll be just sitting around over here? Are you mocking me?”
Chu Fei Long was apologetic as he said, “I was careless with my words.”
Chu Xiong Cheng snorted.
Suddenly, Chu Fei Long thought for a moment before asking, “Eldest sister-in-law, I have something to say, but I’m not sure if I should say it out.
Yang Ruolan calmly caressed her son’s hair and said, “Feel free to speak your mind.”
Chu Fei Ling’s smile was a little forced as he spoke, “Eldest sister-in-law, this…nephew, I wonder if you’ve verified that he’s…cough cough, I have no other intention. It’s just that the Chu Clan is very established. There will undoubtedly be some imitators…cough cough…I’m just saying…”
However, his words left Chu Xiong Cheng very wary. He just realized that he was too excited and forgot about this important question.
If he treated the wrong person as his grandson…and acknowledged someone else’s child, the Chu Clan might fall into the hands of someone else.
After taking a closer look, Chu Xiong Cheng doubtfully said, “Number two, I don’t this guy is an imitator. Look at him, he looks just like your eldest brother when he was a teenager.”
Chu Fei Long bitterly laughed, “Father…similar appearances…every child that our clan has brought back over the past eighteen years all look like eldest brother when he was a teenager. The key thing is…whether he shares the same blood as all of us. Father, I remember there’s a way.”
“That’s right!” Chu Xiong Cheng suddenly exclaimed, “I still remember Old Yang telling me about a method called ‘Blood of the Tongue, Soul of the Purple Crystal’? That can’t be faked….”
Chu Fei Long was excited and clapped his hands, “Isn’t this the Purple Crystal? Let’s try it out and we’ll find out the truth.”
Yang Ruolan’s expression immediately turned very cold and he slowly said, “Father, second brother, are the both of you suggesting that we should retrieve this Purple Crystal Jade Essence right now before using the blood from this kid’s tongue to verify his identity?”
Chu Fei Long was very sincere as he said, “Eldest sister-in-law, I know you are in a difficult spot! Everyone has kids, and the child of a mother is like her flesh. How could she not feel heart-ached? Let’s not even talk about the blood from the tongue. Even if it’s just a superficial scratch, I’m sure a parent will be anguished to see his/her child being hurt.”
He paused for a moment before he continued nagging, “However, we are trying to verify the identity of my eldest nephew. It’s important to know that a kid’s appearance and figure changes significantly as he grows up. Who knows what this kid will be like when he grows up in the future?”
“Despite this, one’s blood can never change!”
Chu Fei Long took in a deep breath and he suddenly appeared very stern. “If you believe me, I’ll handle this matter personally. I’ll make him feel as little pain as possible! I’m confident of this.”
Chu Fei Ling sounded very sincere and honest.
His intent voice left Chu Xiong Cheng very moved. Chu Xiong Cheng stroked his beard and said, “Your words…they sound very logical…”
“I don’t agree!” Yang Ruolan retorted. “This kid is in a coma right now. How can you let him suffer such pain? Furthermore, he’s holding the jade essence very tightly. If you force it out from his hand, you’ll need to chop off his five fingers! How can we do that!”
She was angry and sorrowful as she shouted, “This kid treasures this jade essence a lot. Isn’t that sufficient proof? Moreover, our hearts are connected. The moment I saw him, I knew he’s my son! Can that possibly be faked?”
Chu Xiong Cheng stroked his beard as he muttered, “Your words are logical too…”
Chu Fei Long smiled steadily and replied, “Eldest sister-in-law, you are overthinking and your words are too serious! I won’t ever dare to doubt you! However, you must understand that you’ve lost your child for eighteen and a half years. It’s a long time. You call someone your son the moment you see him. Don’t you think that’s a little…”
He laughed bitterly and continued saying, “…and you want to the entire clan to believe your words…this…don’t you think it’s a little immature?”
He stopped for a moment before continuing again, “Furthermore, retrieving blood from his tongue is not a huge matter! We just a thin needle to prick it. He won’t even feel it before we complete the job. As for his fingers…”
Chu Fei Long furrowed his brow and used his passionate yet understanding tone of voice to speak, “As a man in the pugilistic world, how would he not have shed blood before? How would he not have been wounded before? For a few pieces of purple and white crystals, he can even turn realms outside down and leave corpses behind him. Think about it, this concerns the future of the clan; it’s an even bigger issue!”
“It’s just a few fingers, but he can prove the origin of his blood. Even if his fingers are broken, so what? Moreover, it’s not as if he can’t recover from his injuries!”
He laughed coldly, “It’s not just his five fingers. If the time comes, even if it’s his bones, we must crush them and interrogate them to find out who’s the one who came up with the brilliant scheme to make it seem as if the Chu Clan didn’t have an heir to inherit control of the clan.”
Chu Fei Ling and Chu Fei Yan had already silently entered the room and were listening to his words right now.
Chu Fei Long sounded extremely convincing and persuasive. He considered everything, and there weren’t any flaws with his ideas!
Chu Fei Yan could recognize Chu Yang. However, Chu Fei Long, Yang Ruolan and Chu Xiong Cheng were blocking his view right now and he couldn’t clearly see Chu Yang. After listening to Chu Fei Long’s words, he couldn’t help but concur, “I think that second brother’s words are very logical.”
Chu Fei Ling suddenly turned around and glared at him.
Yang Ruolan laughed coldly and interrupted, “No matter what you say, I won’t agree to your idea! He’s my son. Whoever dares to touch him, I’ll fight it all out with him!”
Chu Xiong Cheng furrowed his brow and tried to persuade her, “Ruolan, you are so confident anyway. It’s just a verification test…don’t tell me that we don’t even have the authority to verify the identity of a Chu Clan descendant?”
Yang Ruolan was determined as she answered, “It’s important to verify his identity, but not now! If you want to verify his identity now, you’ll need to break all five fingers of his! I won’t allow that. The only way we’re going to verify his identity is to wait for him to wake up!”
Chu Fei Long’s gaze flashed, and he asked, “What if he doesn’t wake up?”
“We’ll wait then!” Yang Ruolan was very persistent, “We’ll only do it when he wakes up!”
“Eldest sister-in-law, what’s the point of stalling for time like this?” Chu Fei Ling took in a deep breath and said in a solemn voice, “We should realize that time is a valuable resource. Two hours are enough to destroy an entire aristocratic family, three days and nights are enough to overthrow a dynasty…”
He slightly sighed, “Eldest sister-in-law, if you continue to stall for time, do you know that a crisis is impending?”
When he said this, Chu Xiong Cheng, Chu Fei Yan were both very moved.
While the Chu Clan held the greatest authority among the Three Great Clans in the Flat Mountain Ridge, there seemed to be a storm brewing and things were slowly changing differently from before. Apparently, it had something to do with the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword. The stronger aristocratic clans had their own plans in mind….
Those in the Flat Mountain Ridge were likely to unite together because of this matter.
In such a situation, the Three Great Clans resorted to every conceivable means…but Chu Fei Ling and his wife actually found their missing son at such a timing?
Did coincidences really happen?
Chu Fei Long seemed very serious and worried, but he was actually sniggering in his heart. Yang Ruolan had already taken one step into his trap.
After he received news, he appeared to be doing nothing. However, he had already secretly conducted an investigation. Very soon, he found out that Chu Yang held his Purple Crystal Jade Essence very tightly and refused to let go of it.
This was why he personally came to visit Chu Yang. When he saw Chu Yang, he became even more determined.
In fact, when he saw Chu Yang and how he looked identical to his eldest brother when he was younger, he could confirm that it was true! However, he could not reveal this fact!
Not only could he not reveal this fact, he even had to use this opportunity to deal a huge blow to Chu Fei Ling!
If he missed this opportunity, he might regret it for life.
If he could force Yang Ruolan to leave the Chu Clan with her son, the clan of Chu Fei Ling’s father-in-law would cease to become an ally of the Chu Clan!
This was why he was very insistent on verifying Chu Yang’s identity.
He knew what it meant to be a benevolent mother.
After Yang Ruolan’s missing son for eighteen years returned in an unconscious state, how could she be willing to break five of his fingers to verify his identity?
She wouldn’t allow it even at the expense of her life!
“I have a plan if you are unwilling to do so. I’m only afraid that you are willing to do so!”
Yang Ruolan was very cold and said determinedly, “No matter what, whoever wants to touch my son has to go through me first!”
Chu Fei Ling’s body shook, and he shouted hoarsely, “Ruolan!”
Yang Ruolan ignored him.
Chu Fei Long shook his head and sighed. Suddenly, his eyes brightened, and he softly asked, “Elder sister-in-law, this matter…surely it’s not a scheme by the Yang Clan, right?”
Once he asked this, the room turned completely silent!
