Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 782 If we don't have them, do other families have them?
Although the sound was soft, they were clearly hearing Chu Le’er. There was no pain in her voice, but instead, it was full of sincere joy!
Such joyous laughter could not be faked at all.
Duan Shuyi trembled with tears which fell like rain. She grasped Yang Ruolan’s hands wildly. She grabbed them so strongly that Yang Ruolan’s hands hurt. Duan Shuyi chattered on, “Sister, did you hear it? Did you hear it? It’s Le’er. Le’er just laughed! Le’er just laughed…”
Yang Ruolan was excited too and whispered, “Yes, it’s Le’er…”
Duan Shuyi choked as she sobbed.”Le’er… for eleven years, I haven’t heard her laugh like this before. She finally laughed today. How joyous her laugh was … Sister… I have heard this laugh once in my life… I’m really satisfied and happy…”
Even though she said she was happy, her tears could not stop falling. She said, “If only Feihan could hear it… I believe that he would be comforted even while searching the lofty mountains…”
Chu Feiling looked gloomy. Thinking of his third brother still wandering some unknown, misty and barren mountains made him feel bitter in his heart.
Rolling mists, stretches of mountains, treacherous valleys, ferocious beasts, and unfathomable intentions of various people… For eleven years, all of these did not weaken his third brother’s determination for seeking medicine for his daughter!
Where is third brother now?
Is he still lost in the misty mountains, carrying with him the illusion of hope, still looking for something?
The child that tagged along with him, repeatedly calling him ‘big brother’ , has now grown into an upstanding man!
Although this process was sour and bitter…
This laughter was like a sound from heaven for everyone. Everyone’s eyes reddened and various thoughts crossed their minds. For all these years, how long had they waited… for such a laugh?
For this laugh, how much did they sacrifice?
Everyone stood dumbfounded, deep in their thoughts. Only Duan Shuyi’s soft sobbing could be heard in the house. As she tightly held onto Yang Ruolan’s hands, her whole body was feeble and on the verge of passing out. “Sister, Yang Yang is able to make Le’er laugh… I… I… I’m willing… to die for him!”
Yang Ruolan sighed deeply, not knowing what to say. She felt that her throat was suffocated and held Duan Shuyi’s hands tightly.
In the inner chamber, Chu Yang’s spirits were connected deeply with the sword spirit. Chu Yang was practically able to see the sword spirit enter Chu Le’er’s meridians and travel through them it into a dark space.
Chu Yang did not expect this space to be full of vitality!
The sword spirit sighed, “The toughness of the little girl is evident! Even a perfectly healthy person could not have such vitality. Such vitality is based on nothing…”
Instantly, the sword spirit extended his hands in this space.
As his hands exited his sleeves, they were transformed into golden rays. It was as though the god of the Nine Heavens had arrived!
Then, he closed his eyes and breathed deeply. His raised both his hands at the same time and made various complicated gestures. Along with his gestures, the entire space suddenly flashed with lightning and rumbled with thunder.
Golden rays shot out and disappeared into the corners of the space without leaving a trace. Chu Yang carefully counted them. He had emitted a total of 81 golden rays!
Then, something dropped. There seemed to be a faint figure forming in this space. It disintegrated into milky white rays. These rays penetrated the boundaries of the space and entered Chu Le’er’s brain. They erased tiny black spots and stripped those dots from Chu Le’er’s brain, forming a dark cloud.
The white figure pressed on the black cloud and entered the meridians. It then gathered the tiny black spots inside the meridians bit by bit. The gathering got slower and slower as the white light tried harder to gather the black spots.
The sword spirit started to do the complicated gestures again. Again, a white figure burst into rays and entered the meridians to form a new force preventing the black cloud from traveling downwards!
The process was repeated three times consecutively. All the black spots were pressed into a ball. It was placed inside Chu Le’er’s elixir field. Layer upon layer of white light wrapped around it to steady it.
The sword spirit heaved a sigh and said, “Chu Yang, this sister of yours…” He suddenly stopped speaking halfway through his sentence and switched into a new topic, “After three months, you must suppress her illness again. Otherwise, when the pain returns, the level of pain will be ten times that of the past!”
Chu Yang nodded firmly, “I’ve remembered it well. I’ll make sure to not have any delay!”
The sword spirit looked exhausted and said, “That’s good! Although I’ve seen the condition of this little girl, I didn’t expect it to be so severe. Originally I planned to suppress her illness once, but I did three times…”
“What exactly is that thing?” Chu Yang asked, “Why is it so imposing?”
“This is a congenital disease. To be more precise, there’s a component of the meridians, nerves, muscles, skin, and bones that hasn’t been discovered yet in the Nine Heavens. It forms the most important part of the body!”
The sword spirit said, “This component controls the emotions, senses, and taste… Le’er’s injury also lies there!”
Chu Yang said with aghast, “There’s such a thing?”
The sword spirit smiled, “The human body is like the universe! Not to say that it’s all-encompassing, there’re still a lot of subtle yet important parts that we haven’t discovered yet. If we found them all, even an ordinary person could get to the ninth stage of Martial Warrior in one day… I would not be surprised!”
“People like to look for treasure, but they hardly know that… the biggest treasure in their lives is their own bodies! For hundreds of thousands of years, how many people in the Nine Heavens have lived their whole lives possessing a great treasure that they’ve never touched! Instead, they resign themselves to live a poor life… How sad!” The sword spirit gave a deep sigh.
Chu Yang frowned and thought deeply.
“Le’er’s disease is congenital! Nature can let us live a splendid life, but it can also lead us to live bitterly. This kind of thing…” The sword spirit pointed to the black spot in Chu Le’er’s elixir field and said, “… We call it the ‘Heaven and Earth Poison’!”
“Heaven and Earth Poison…”Chu Yang muttered and looked as though he thought of something.
The sword spirit stopped speaking and returned to Chu Yang’s consciousness, saying, “I need to rest for a while. I also need to remind you of something. Once Chu Le’er has recovered, she will have incredible talents. Although she will start late, her starting point is high. She will definitely become a terrifying figure in the future. Who knows, maybe she can be a person of great help to you?”
Chu Yang smiled lightly, “Sword spirit, you look down on me too much. Le’er is my sister. If she has no big ambitions, I’ll rather she lead a peaceful and happy life, one that’s ordinary but blessed. But if she wants to become a strong woman, I’ll pave the way for her… As to whether I want her to be of help to me… I, Chu Yang, am still not depraved to the point where I need to take advantage of her!”
The sword spirit did not respond and rested deeply.
Chu Yang pushed open the door of the inner chamber.
Chu Feiling, Yang Ruolan, and Chu Feiyan, who were anxious from waiting, went up to him as soon as they saw him come out. They began to chatter.
“How is it?” Chu Feiling asked.
“Is she alright?” Yang Ruolan asked.
“Why hasn’t Le’er come out?” Chu Feiyan asked.
Duan Shuyi was somehow shivering, and she stood at her original spot. She fearfully looked at Chu Yang. She wanted to hear from him but was also afraid to say anything… She didn’t dare come up to him.
“It was very successful!” Chu Yang laughed and everyone’s hearts were overjoyed. “Le’er shall not experience any pain for the next three months!”
“Great!” Chu Feiling and the other two were full of excitement and clapped.
Duan Shuyi moaned as she sobbed, almost falling down. Yang Ruolan quickly held her up.
“Le’er is asleep,” Chu Yang said, “Third aunt, you can go in to take a look. She’s alright now .”
Duan Shuyi nodded gratefully. She wanted to take a step forward but felt that her two legs had turned to jelly and lost control. She only went in with the help of Yang Ruolan.
Although Duan Shuyi’s cultivation was not considered high in the Chu clan, she was nonetheless the pupil of a renowned teacher and had reached the cultivation of a Martial Emperor. But now she was so feeble. This showed how affected she was.
In the inner chamber.
Chu Le’er lay quietly on Chu Yang’s bed. Her poor thin arms were crossed above her lower abdomen and her small head lay slanted on the pillow. Her face was radiant with a long-lost touch of red and her long eyelashes covered her eyelids like small fans. Her delicate lips occasionally wriggled gently and the corners of her mouth would curl up at the same time…
It seemed that even in her dreams, she was smiling with bliss as she tasted a relaxing and joyful feeling that she had never felt before.
Duan Shuyi looked blankly at her daughter who was deeply asleep. Her eyes slowly watered with tears. Her daughter was already eleven years old, but this was the first time she saw her sleeping so serenely and with a smile so filled with satisfaction…
Duan Shuyi’s body gradually softened while she knelt in front of the bed. Full of gratitude and joy, she lowered her head softly onto the bed and looked at her daughter with unblinking eyes. She covered her mouth firmly with her hands…
Chu Yang and the rest quietly exited the chamber.
The fragrance of tea filled the living room. Yang Ruolan had refilled the teapot for Chu Feiling, Chu Feiyan, and Yang Ruolan so that they could lubricate their throats as before starting a conversation. Everyone knew that Chu Le’er was temporarily well and that now, their real efforts had begun!
That was their missing key! The time they had was very short. Only two years!
To find the eight rare remedies in two years was something that no one could ever be confident in doing!
