Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 812 I Have a Wife
The name of Chu Yang’s cousin was very cute; she’s called Yang Yaya. She also gave Chu Yang a peace buckle.
Chu Yang thought: Looks like her clan isn’t well-educated, even the names that they give are all rustic. This level of giving names fade in comparison with my own teacher Meng Chaoran.
For instance, Chu Yang, Tan Tan… How good the names are!
Yang Ruoxiong laughed. He wanted to pat on Chu Yang’s shoulder again but held back, and could only pat on his legs. He shouted, “I don’t have a lot of treasures, and I think that purple crystals are more practical in usage than those little gadgets! Nephew, your grandpa didn’t give you purple crystals, but I’ll give you! I’ll give you whatever amount you want. You shall take these first. If you want to have a concubine, throw the purple crystals directly at me! If you don’t have enough purple crystals, tell me and I’ll give you more!”
Everyone was dumbfounded. Have a concubine? Why is there such a frank uncle! This is their first meeting, and he has even prepared to get his nephew a concubine…
“Yang Yang, where do you get your name from? Such a nice name,” Yang Bao grinned as he scrutinized his grandson. He felt that other than his feeble body, everything about him was good. Of course, if Chu Yang could be as stalwart as his uncle, that would be even more wonderful. But as he thought, he sighed with pity: The traits from the Chu clan aren’t good, this is the best that Chu Yang could be.
“It’s given to me by my teacher,” Chu Yang said carefully. He thought: How is this name good? Even you know that my name is good?
“Hey, you didn’t know your family background then, did you? How did your teacher know that your father’s surname is Chu, while your mother’s one is Yang?” Old Master Yang was very surprised. “This person isn’t simple. Chu Yang, Chu Yang… Hahaha, doesn’t this represent our two families? And your nickname is called Yang Yang. Obviously, our Yang clan stands greater significance in your name.”
Chu Yang didn’t know whether to cry or laugh. He finally knew why his grandpa thought his name was good. It turned out that this old man had thought the ‘Yang’ in Chu Yang’s name was the same character as his own surname ‘Yang’.
“It’s the same ‘Yang’ within the term ‘Yang Guang 1 ‘,” Chu Yang corrected him.
“It’s ‘Yang’ anyway!” Yang Bao waved his hand. “When a sheep is brought into the donkeys’ shed, it’s not a sheep anymore! It has turned into a donkey!”
Chu Yang was stunned.
“How is it? Good grandson, I hope that you’re satisfied with the gifts given by our clan?” Old Master Yang Bao laughed, and gazed around complacently. “We’re not as stingy as some person from a certain clan. He is so stingy that he clamped his purple crystals in his asshole and isn’t willing to take them out.”
As he said, he slanted his eyes to look at Chu Xiongcheng and sneered.
Chu Xiongcheng immediately turned his head back angrily, and snorted in his heart: I merely don’t want to reveal the unsavory background of your clan. How are we as wealthy as your Yang clan? Do you think I don’t know about the Purple Crystals Mine that your clan had gained several years ago? Otherwise, where did the Pure Purple Jade Essence come from?
So magnanimous of you to give off 500 purple crystals at one shot. Although these are half a year’s revenue of our Chu clan, they are only a drop in the ocean for your Yang clan.
Otherwise, how did you organize the Blood-Clothed Troop which is made up of all Martial Emperors? Old bastard, you really thought that I’m stupid… I merely don’t want to publicize this for the sake of the relations between our two clans. Otherwise, your entire clan would be destroyed…
Yang Bao laughed and said, “Now that my grandson is finally back home, I’ve removed one load from my mind! Back then, my father only had me when he was 76 years old. He endured many hardships…”
Old Mistress Yang coughed profusely.
Everyone was astounded: What has your grandson got to do with your father having you at 76 years old? But your father is really good… He’s still sexually potent even at such an age…
Hearing the coughing sounds, Yang Bao suddenly changed the subject, and said seriously, “… When Yaya and Yang Yang were about to be born, my father happened to get a piece of Pure Purple Jade Essence, so he requested an expert to cut it into two halves, and write the word ‘Chu’ on one, while ‘Yang’ on the other. This is to indicate the family background of both of them.”
Yang Bao turned around, “Grandson, where’s your jade pendant?”
Chu Yang and the girl in red next to him immediately fished their pendants out and held them over.
Yang Bao held the two jade pendants and said delightfully, “These are the two pieces hahaha…”
Chu Yang faintly felt that something bad was going to happen.
Sure enough, he heard Yang Bao say, “At that time, both our clans had an agreement, that is… We would do nothing if both of them are girls or boys, but if one is a girl and the other a boy, they shall marry each other hahaha… That would be a heaven-made match!”
Chu Yang’s head exploded instantly, and suddenly he felt dizzy.
The girl in red was also stunned, and instantly her face blushed. She stomped her feet violently, “Grandpa, what nonsense are you saying?”
Very obviously, she did not know this in advance.
Yang Bao said jubilantly, “Yang Yang, come over and have a look at your wife!”
Yang Ruoxiong patted on Chu Yang’s shoulder, his eyes beaming, “Nephew! Quickly come and have a look at my daughter. I couldn’t call you nephew in the future. You shall be called son-in-law. Hahaha, son-in-law, quickly come up and have a look…”
Chu Yang was dumbstruck.
Yang Ruolan and Chu Feiling were also startled. The duo suddenly remembered that there was indeed such a thing back then, and instantly felt awful. They had been too delighted over their son’s return that they actually forgot about this matter… What could they do now?
Others might not know, but how could both of them not know? Chu Yang already had a lover, and in the Lower Three Heavens, he already had a child with the Emperor. The Empress, also his wife, was also waiting for his return…
Then there suddenly emerged a promised wife before he was born…
Chu Yang would certainly not accept this. Chu Yang even didn’t accept Wu Qianqian, a beauty who had been with Chu Yang for such a long time. Let alone this cousin that Chu Yang had met for the first time.
“No!” Yang Yaya, with tears in her eyes, had already burst out furiously before Chu Yang had thought of how to respond, “I was wondering why all of you wanted me to come here for. Now I see! How could you… How could you be like this?”
The little girl felt wronged and she pursed her lips angrily.
“Marriages are dictated by parents and match-makers! It’s useless for you to go against it! As long as I agreed with this marriage, then this marriage must carry on!” Yang Ruoxiong waved his hands, “Let alone this is decided by your grandpa, so you can’t disobey this decision.”
Yang Yaya felt angry, anxious and wronged, and finally, tears shed from her eyes.
“Yang Yang, what do you have to say?” Yang Bao stared at his grandson.
Chu Yang touched his chin and said, “It’s, of course, a good thing… that my cousin looks so pretty, but I… but I already have a wife…”
“You have a wife!?”
Not only the Yang clan, the Chu clan was also stunned by these words. Including Chu Feiling and Yang Ruolan, they looked as if they were struck by lightning!
Such words were really too explosive!
“You… you… you…” Yang Bao stared and pointed at Chu Yang. He was so agitated that his fingers trembled, “Then, where’s your wife?”
Originally, he had wanted to question Chu Yang, but again he thought: This kid was outside for so many years, how could he know that his clan had already settled his marriage? This really can’t be blamed on him.
“My wife has gone off with her teacher to learn martial arts,” Chu Yang said calmly.
“Gone off with her teacher?” Yang Ruolan was the most concerned for Chu Yang, and said, “What’s your wife’s name? How does she look? Are both of you married already?”
Chu Yang revealed a contradictory look, and whispered at his mother’s ears, “Mother, we can’t afford to talk me out of getting married. Not to mention our clan, even the Ye clan, the number one clan in the Nine Great Clans, can’t afford to do so.”
How calculative was Chu Yang? At first sight, he had understood that only his mother could be able to push this marriage away.
Thus, he simply worked on his mother.
But he didn’t lie to her. Mo Qingwu was the shared apprentice of Ning Tianya and Bu Liuqing, who were both Supreme Martial Artists. Even the Ye clan would not dare to push away a promised marriage. It would really be a disaster if the two Martial Warriors got angry.
Well, besides, if it was the Ye clan, not to mention a big beauty, even if it was a female pig… the Ye clan would have to marry her in and provide for her. How could they talk about pushing away a promised marriage?
Yang Ruolan was shocked and delighted at the same time. With an itchy heart, she asked in a low voice, “Which clan is the girl from?”
Chu Yang said mysteriously, “I can’t say it here…”
Yang Ruolan glanced at Chu Feilong and took a tumble. She said, “Yes, yes, you can’t say it here…”
And she turned towards Yang Bao and said, “Father, since Yang Yang already has a wife, how about doing away with this affair. Yaya is also my most beloved niece and the treasure of the Yang clan. She can’t be a concubine no matter what.”
Yang Bao stroked his beard and mumbled with a deep voice, “Actually, it’s normal for a man to have a few wives and concubines at the same time…”
Aside, Yang Ruoxiong’s wife moved closer to Old Mistress Yang and implored, “Mother…”
Old Mistress Yang snorted and said, “Since Yang Yang has already found himself a wife, what are we still worrying for? Old fellow, let’s just end this talk!”
Old Master Yang was a bit unreluctant and said, “I want to have a look at the wife of this kid, and see whether she is suitable for him. If she isn’t, they should just divorce and let Chu Yang marry our Yaya.”
Chu Yang didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
As such, the conversation of this matter was lightly dismissed.
Following which, the Chu clan’s banquet started. All sorts of seafood and countless bottles of good wines were served one after another…
Instantly, aroma of food and wine diffused in all directions. Yang Bao and his son tossed and drank to their hearts’ content. Not for long, they were already drunk. At first, Old Master Yang Bao caught Chu Feiling and punished him a few sentences, saying that he was useless to bear such a feeble-looking child… But in the end, he had forgotten about this matter.
The two badly-battered geezers held on each other’s shoulders and backs amicably, and they laughed and scolded each other as they drank. Having had a drawn battle previously, both of them wanted to outdo each other in their drinking capacity by intoxicating each other first…
After locking each other’s primordial qi, they lifted up the wine jugs and drank.
In the end, the two geezers became as large as drums. Their bodies shook and their eyes looked drowsy. Finally, they tumbled down at the same time, and they were lifted back into the house.
It was already midnight.
Yang Ruolan was worried ever since the banquet. After the banquet, she called her son into her room and asked him carefully about his wife. Yang Ruolan’s heart was torn with anxiety as she thought about her grandson in the Lower Three Heavens.
