Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 836 Force You To Death
Who is Purple Crystals Huichun Hall’s shopkeeper? Chu Tenghu!
Moreover… Chu Tenghu was now arrested by the law-enforcement officers. How to ask? I can’t go to the Law Enforcement Hall to ask, as that would be delivering myself to them…
That big steward’s face blushed and he said, “If you didn’t do something fishy about this, how can we not earn even a purple crystal?”
Instantly, Chu Yang felt so wronged that he turned speechless. He pointed a trembling finger at him, then he started to cough non-stop and gasp heavily for breath — he had seen so many people behaving like this in recent times, so Divine Doctor Chu was able to act pretty well.
Finally, he recovered from his breath. He rushed a few steps towards the steward and pointed to his nose, “You actually insinuate that I’m harming the clan interests! This is really a big shame to me in my life! You’re framing me! The injustice that I suffer today won’t ever be washed away in my whole life! For the sake of my innocence and reputation, I want to sue you for slander! I’ll definitely tell the law-enforcement officers that you’ve slandered me!”
Everyone felt dizzy instantly.
The color of that big steward’s face alternated between red and white. He finally couldn’t suppress his frustration and stood up, asking, “Am I not saying the truth?”
Chu Yang said in rage, “You’re slandering me! You’re biting without any basis! I’ll tell you, wait till we go to the Law Enforcement Hall, the truth would be revealed! You shall wait and see!”
Chu Xiongcheng yelled, “Enough!”
Chu Yang sat down angrily and said, “Grandpa, look at what this dog-like servant has said! I’m the eldest young master of the Chu clan! If not for some incidents, quarrels among siblings or fratricidal conflicts, the Chu clan would belong to me in the future! This servant actually dares to say that I’m harming the clan interests! Why didn’t he widen his dog eyes, and use his muddled brain to think: If I harm the clan interests, aren’t I harming myself too? Who would be so foolish in the world… This dog-like servant obviously has an ulterior motive! Grandpa, please give him a severe punishment.”
Chu Xiongcheng had a headache now. He frowned, “Can all of you talk lesser… Argh…”
This grandson is simply a hedgehog; he won’t want anyone to touch him. If he has reasons, he’ll definitely not pardon his opponents; If he has no reasons, he’ll still furiously tangle his opponents up with him. His ability to confound black and white is really horrible.
Everyone didn’t speak, and remained silent.
Not for long, Chu Feiling flew back into the hall.
Chu Xiongcheng asked hurriedly, “How is it?”
Chu Feilong raised his head abruptly.
The parcel that Chu Feiling had carried still looked heavy.
He shook his head and said, “Sha Xinliang simply didn’t allow me to talk, and refused our gifts. Then he turned me away. He said that this matter is an offense against decency and has extremely huge implications, so he had no choice but to deal it with caution. He also said that the Three Stars Divine Clan has lost their sanity, and there’s a mastermind behind this… Now, they’re carrying out the interrogations. I pleaded them to allow me to take just a look at my two nephews, but they also rejected…”
Everyone was astonished!
Aside, Chu Feilong’s wife started to sob.
Chu Feilong’s face instantly became as pale as paper.
“Interrogation!?” Old Master Chu asked shockingly, “How can the two of them endure it?”
Everyone knew this fact even without Old Master Chu mentioning it. Chu Tenghu and Chu Tengjiao were pampered since young. How could they endure the interrogation?
Old Master Chu stamped his feet and said, “If that’s the case, I’ll give up my old face and go there personally!”
“I’m afraid that it won’t help even if you go,” Chu Feilong said softly.
“Then who’s going to be of help?!” Chu Xiongcheng yelled furiously, “Your sons are arrested, yet as a father, you’re still indifferent. You didn’t say a word from beginning to end! How on Earth is there such a father who’s as heartless as you!”
Chu Feilong revealed a sinister expression and stood speechless.
“Say! Who’s going to be of help?!” Old Master Chu screamed in utter rage.
Chu Yang smiled sheepishly. “Grandpa, you don’t need to worry. Since second uncle didn’t feel worried at all, he’s definitely very confident that nothing bad will happen!”
Chu Feilong raised his head. Unexpectedly, a smile revealed at the corners of his mouth as he looked at Chu Yang, and he said, “Yang Yang is correct. I’m indeed very confident! Because I know that only you can release my two sons.”
Chu Yang shook his head violently, saying, “I don’t have the ability… Even my father couldn’t save them, what can I do?”
Chu Feilong, still smiling, fixed his eyes on Chu Yang and said, “Yang Yang, you’ve won. What do you want? Second uncle will give you everything you want, as long as you release your two younger brothers!”
Chu Yang said sincerely, “I’m really helpless! Second uncle, even if you give me the whole universe, I’m also helpless! …”
Chu Feilong gazed at Chu Yang and said slowly, “I shall allow you to run the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall alone. How is it?”
Chu Yang smiled bitterly and helplessly, saying, “Second uncle, please don’t force me. I really don’t know the law-enforcement officers…”
Chu Feilong took in another deep breath, “I shall allow the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall to revert to its original state. It shall only be your personal property and the clan shan’t ever intervene in it. How is it?”
Chu Yang was still helpless, “I’m really unfamiliar with the law-enforcement officers…”
Everyone revealed their disdain: Before anything was said, you insisted that you were helpless; Only after the first condition was out, you said you ‘don’t know’ the law-enforcement officers; After the second condition was out, you immediately said that you were ‘really unfamiliar with the law-enforcement officer’…
You’re fast enough in changing your words!
With fiery eyes, Chu Feilong continued to say slowly, “I shall promise to fulfill one request of yours, no matter what it is! How is it?”
Chu Yang sighed, and said, “Second uncle, you really sound like you’re the clan master… Grandpa hasn’t spoken yet.”
Chu Xiongcheng sighed and said, “Yang Yang, please let this matter pass. Grandpa… also agree with your second uncle.”
Chu Yang let out a long sigh, as if he was forced into helplessness. Suddenly, he turned around, pointed to the three stewards who had clamored the most previously, and shouted in rage, “What are the three of you muttering about? What do you mean? How dare you say that my second uncle is stupid! Treason!”
The three people lost color on their faces and said, “You, you… What nonsense are you saying, since when did we say it…”
Chu Feilong yelled, “You just said it! I heard it very clear that you’ve just called Chu Feilong stupid! You scolded like this: Chu Feilong is really stupid! Chu Feilong is really stupid! And you repeated them thrice!”
Blood had already reached Chu Feilong’s mouth, and his teeth started to clatter.
He knew what Chu Yang meant. This was Chu Yang’s last condition: Chu Yang not only was scolding Chu Feilong himself publicly but also wanted Chu Feilong to kill these three people personally!
Chu Yang wanted Chu Feilong to kill his best assistants personally!
Chu Feilong’s face started to twitch. He was in anguish.
These three stewards were dominant players within the clan, other than himself and his few siblings! He had only roped them in after exhausting much efforts and means.
Initially, it was also with these three people that he lay his position in the Chu clan. It could be said that they were indispensable figures in his own camp.
Not only were they important to himself, but they also made great contributions to the clan.
If he really killed them, he would cast a chill over everyone: You even dared to kill your subordinates who were as intimate to you as brothers, let alone other people!
In this way, his camp would immediately disperse. Who knew how much efforts he would have to put in to mend everything from scratch again?
But he had taken a wrong step. This had caused his two sons to fall into Chu Yang’s hands, and they were now suffering under interrogations. If he went to them one step later, he would probably have to claim their corpses instead.
He couldn’t help but let out a long sigh, asking, “Did you really scold me?”
The three of them sensed something bad was going to happen. They immediately threw themselves onto the ground and begged to Chu Feilong profusely, “Second master, please investigate this carefully. We… We really didn’t do anything… How would we dare to scold you?”
Chu Feilong closed his eyes and said, “The three of you unreasonably criticized the eldest young master of the Chu clan, and have already violated the rules of the Chu clan! The three of you shall have your positions demote by three grades, and relegate to managers of foreign affairs!”
Chu Yang shouted, “Second uncle, they really did scold you! I heard it with my own ears. They scolded this way: Chu Feilong is stupid! Chu Feilong is stupid! Chu Feilong is stupid…”
Chu Feilong swallowed the mouthful of blood which was stuck in his throat.
He knew that Chu Yang meant: If you don’t kill these three people, I’ll kill your sons! These three people must die!
If he accepted Chu Feilong’s decision to relegate their positions, he wouldn’t yell in such a manner.
This was an ultimatum.
The three people panicked and shouted persistently, “Second master, we really didn’t scold you…” The three people also knew that Chu Yang was forcing Chu Feilong, but, other than this sentence, they already had nothing else to say.
Chu Yang said coldly, “From the looks of the three of you, you not only scolded my second uncle here, but you also scolded him at home…”
Instantly, the three felt that they had lost all hopes!
Does he mean that he wants to also kill our families?
Chu Feilong stood still and motionless.
Strangely, everyone else in the hall didn’t speak anything and no one came up to appease the conflict. They only quietly watched Chu Yang acting insanely and Chu Feilong standing stiffly.
Chu Xiongcheng even held his breath and looked at Chu Feilong with conflicted and fluctuating expressions.
Yang Ruolan’s breath became more rapid and she held onto Chu Feiling’s elbows tightly.
Chu Feiyan looked calmly at Chu Yang and Chu Feilong.
Duan Shuyi, Chu Feilong’s wife, Chu Feiyan’s wife and the other juniors, who were sitting together, unconsciously covered their mouths with their hands, their eyes were full of horror.
The other big stewards in the hall had their heads lowered and spoke nothing. They were the most afraid to speak. Everyone knew clearly: As long as they pleaded, Chu Yang would definitely strike back vigorously by claiming that they scolded Chu Feilong for being stupid… They would then be beheaded!
I can allow whoever who wants to plead for mercy to do so. Anyway, I’ll just behead him.
Chu Feilong only hesitated for a moment, yet Chu Yang had already added the families of the three to his killing list… If it landed on himself…
Everyone remained silent, and also unconsciously made their gasping sounds smaller.
Chu Yang and Chu Feilong stood still.
Neither of them spoke.
But everyone knew that the stalemate between this uncle-nephew pair had already reached its most critical moment!
Chu Feilong’s hands trembled, and sweat dripped down profusely from his forehead.
He didn’t want to kill these three, but if he didn’t kill them… he would have to pay off his sons.
