Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 814 Mother-Child Mandarin Duck Jade
Cool laughter sounded. Sha Xinliang’s beaming bald head appeared in front of Chu Yang. Sha Xinliang ran over to Chu Yang hurriedly and clasped Chu Yang’s hands, “Little Brother hahaha, why have you returned in such a short time? Come come come, we shall go in to have a good cup of tea, and have a meal here together.”
As he said, he pulled Chu Yang’s hands and dragged him enthusiastically into the hall.
The two law-enforcement officers who were on duty at the gate almost had their eyeballs jumped out.
Motherf**ker! Is this even the cold-faced and black-hearted Commander Sha that we have? Commander Sha always held on a black face. Even if the clan masters of the Three Big Clans come, he would also attend to them half-heartedly. His face was always raised upwards and he always looked very proud.
When he sees this youth, why does he appear as if he had seen his own father? Even if the law-enforcement master was here, he wouldn’t look like this…
Hearing that Chu Yang had come, Qin Baoshan, who was aside healing his injuries, welcomed him with laughter and a big hug. He looked pleasantly surprised by Chu Yang’s visit, as if a day without Chu Yang seemed as long as three years. “Brother! Hahaha, my little brother. You’ve finally come, I missed you so much…”
Chu Yang had goosebumps all over him: I just left here not more than a day…
Sha Xinliang had already swiftly gotten the tea ready. He said smilingly, “Little brother, come and sit here. I’m just having a game of chess with Old Qin. This old bastard had lost but he cheated. It’s not fun to play with him at all.”
Qin Baoshan was raged. “It’s you who stole my ‘car’!”
Chu Yang waved his hand immediately and interrupted the duo’s quarrel. He said anxiously as he frowned, “Let me say something… my two brothers, why are you like this? It’s so urgent… to get your medicines. You even have the hearts to stay at home to play chess? This…”
Chu Yang looked a bit exasperated. He stamped his feet as he said, “This… This is unacceptable!”
He actually bristled with anger!
Seeing that Chu Yang was truly anxious for them, Qin Baoshan and Sha Xinliang felt deeply touched and looked at each other. Qin Baoshan said gently, “Little brother, don’t worry. Haha, how do we need to find the medicinal ingredients by ourselves? We’ve already arranged for it.”
Sha Xinliang smiled, “If we hadn’t arranged that, we wouldn’t have the hearts to play chess.”
Chu Yang’s eyes sparkled. That was a real surprise for him. He said, “Did you find the Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor and Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor too?”
Qin Baoshan nodded and said, “Both were indeed hard to find, but we have the suitable channels.”
He smiled with pride and said, “The Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor and Nine-Clover Jade Ganoderma are precious elixirs, and can’t be found in other places. Both of us contacted the Medicine Valley and the Zhuge clan. It happened that there is Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor in the Medicine Valley! The Zhuge clan is also preparing for the Medicine Banquet in recent years. Among the medicines they have gathered, there are two pieces of Nine-Clover Jade Ganoderma!”
Sha Xinliang sighed and said, “We shall admit that we’ve exploited our power for our personal gains. By claiming that we came from the Law Enforcement Hall, those who have the medicines were more or less forced to give us some respect. So we’re quite successful. Otherwise, we would take forever to find them…”
“I see,” Chu Yang nodded and smiled with relief, “That’s good then. My two brothers must have spent a lot of money, I guess?”
“Spend money? It’s still not enough!” Sha Xinliang felt that his heart ached, “These are all purple crystals! That Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor is better. It only cost 5,000 purple crystals. But the bunch of brats from the Medicine Valley wanted 10,000 purple crystals for my Nine-Clover Jade Ganoderma! And regardless of what I said, they were not willing to cut the price down! A whole 10,000 purple crystals! These include all the bribes and money that I exploited through power. I also have to borrow 3,000 from Old Qin.”
Sha Xinliang gritted his teeth and cursed the black-heartedness of the Medicine Valley. He sighed and said, “Your old brother is now heavily indebted!”
Qin Baoshan rolled his eyes on him and said, “How unpleasant do you sound! I haven’t asked you to return my money back yet! Besides, how can you talk about bribery and exploitation of power in front of our little brother? He’s an upright and honest person.”
Sha Xinliang laughed and said, “I said this directly only because little brother is not an outsider! Both of us only have an annual salary of 300 purple crystals. How is that enough to get 10,000 purple crystals if we don’t use the money that we gained through other means?”
Chu Yang laughed aloud and said, “That’s right! Brother Qin has been over-anxious. The law-enforcement officers have been wielding control of the Nine Heavens for so many years. To speak the truth, how many law-enforcement officers really are there who’re not greedy? Besides… This is very normal and everyone knows it very clearly, so what is there to hide? Moreover, both are you are my elder brothers. In Brother Qin’s eyes, do I look like I don’t know about these little manners of the world?”
Qin Baoshan laughed, “It’s my mistake that I said wrongly. I’ll punish myself with a jug of wine later on!”
The three laughed.
Yet Chu Yang’s heart shook vehemently: Nine-Clover Jade Ganoderma for 5, 000 purple crystals! Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor for 10,000 purple crystals! They are much more than his preliminary estimations!
The rest of the six poisonous medicines would definitely cost much more than the Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor.
Much more still has to be done in gathering the elixirs.
“Urgh, my two brothers, how did you manage to contact the sellers so quickly?” Chu Yang suddenly remembered something, and stuttered, “The… Medicine Valley and Zhuge clan should be very far away, even with the fastest method of sending messages through hawks, wouldn’t it also… require many days?”
“Hahaha…” Sha Xinliang laughed and patted on Chu Yang’s shoulder, “Little brother, if we rely on passing messages, let alone a few days, they can’t even receive it after a few months’ time. Probably they would be whacked down halfway and eaten roasted… Our Law Enforcement Hall has different branches in every region. Moreover, we have contacts with every big clan. At the front gate of every branch, there’s a Mother-Child Mandarin Duck Jade. We rely on it to transmit messages. Even if we’re tens of thousands of miles away, the messages would be received in no longer than two hours.”
“Mother-Child Mandarin Duck Jade? What’s that? There are really so many fantastic things in the world!” Chu Yang exclaimed, “The more I interact with my two brothers, the more I feel like a frog living at the bottom of the well. I’m just too ignorant…”
This time, he was really surprised.
Sha Xinliang laughed, hit his own legs and said, “Mother-Child Mandarin Duck Jade is a strange jade which can communicate within itself. Even if the mother jade and child jade are several tens of thousands of miles away, there’s still interaction between the two jades. It only requires a few Martial Saints above the eighth stage to use the Mother-Jade Technique on such a jade to put it in the main quarter. All the child jade would be placed in various sub-quarters. When in use, receivers only need to exert some power on the child jade. This could achieve communication purpose.”
He said smilingly, “This stuff is only unique to us law-enforcement officers! All of us use this. The Blood-Payers Hall also uses this. Otherwise, how can messages be transmitted to distances as far as tens of thousands of miles away, within a day? Hahaha…”
Chu Yang was deeply convinced, “It’s really good stuff.”
“Little brother, we’ve already paid our sellers our purple crystals and the transactions were already completed. As of now, the Nine-Clover Jade Ganoderma and Nine-Heavens Jade-Ichor are on the way here now, escorted by expert blood-payers…” Qin Baoshan said smilingly, “Our request to them is that we need them very urgently! Otherwise, how would both of us have the hearts to play chess?”
“Such great speed,” Chu Yang gasped and asked, “But the both of you are here. How do the sellers receive the purple crystals? Could the Mother-Child Mandarin Duck Jade… also transmit the purple crystals over?”
“Little brother, you’re too cute.” Sha Xinliang was thrilled. “Do you think that both of us don’t have any more good brothers? They’ll help us pay for it first, and we’ll pay back to them later. Since the blood-payers escorted the elixirs here, we can conveniently allow them to escort our purple crystals back…”
“I see,” Chu Yang finally knew another secret: Mother-Child Mandarin Duck Jade!
This is really a good thing.
Messages can be transmitted for distances as far as tens of thousands of miles… Motherf**ker, this is faster than anything else. If this stuff landed on Mo Tianji’s hands, and he used this to establish intelligence networks… How terrible would it be?
Chu Yang secretly remembered this.
The three people chattered on for a while. Then, Qin Baoshan realized the anxiousness written over Chu Yang’s face, and he said, “Little brother, you didn’t come here just to chat with us, I suppose? You look worried. Is there anything that has troubled you?”
Sha Xinliang instantly showed his concern too, as he said, “Little brother, please say whatever thing that’s on your mind. We’ll help you to the best of our ability.”
Chu Yang sighed and said, “I’m quite embarrassed to say this.”
“What’s there to be embarrassed in front of us!” Sha Xinliang waved his hands, “Your matter is ours! Do say it directly!”
Chu Yang said sadly, “Brothers, you should know that I’m very lacking of purple crystals. This is why I opened the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall…”
The duo nodded.
Chu Yang said, “But when I went to the medical center today, I realized that my shop was smashed up very heavily by some people! Even my fourth uncle, who stayed there to look after the center, suffered great injuries…”
“What?!” the duo was so furious that they jumped up, “There’s actually such lawless thing happening under our jurisdiction?!”
Chu Yang sighed and said dispiritedly, “I also didn’t expect this…”
Qin Baoshan was utterly raged, “Rebellion, rebellion! It’s simply a rebellion against heaven! Bullying my little brother is equivalent to slapping my face! I can’t tolerate this!”
Sha Xinliang’s temper was also set in flame, “And it’s also slapping my face! Which bastard is so bold?”
“I also don’t know who they are, but their cultivations are very high!” Chu Yang vexed, “And after they smashed up our center yesterday, they said that they would wait for me to clear the corpse of the entire Chu clan if I couldn’t hand them the purple crystals…”
“What!” the duo’s hairs instantly stood up! They were in utter rage!
