Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 838 Soft-Hearted or Black-Hearted
Chu Yang, in response to Chu Feilong’s coercion on him, had countless paths of retreating. At the very most, submitting to humiliation was also not a great deal. Even if he gave up his Purple Crystals Huichun Hall, he’s still the eldest young master of the Chu clan.
But Chu Yang had forced Chu Feilong to the dead end! Chu Feilong had already become poor and utterly helpless!
Do you think that by being a big steward of the clan and using the clan to suppress me, I can’t allow the law-enforcement officers to take actions on you? Haha, not only I want them to take actions, but I would also want to carry out a big strike-back that you would never have expected!
I shall force you to lower your head, and plead and apologize to me in front of everyone!
I shall force you to kill your three greatest assistants in front of everyone!
I shall force you to disperse away your camp.
I shall force you to have more than half of all the efforts that you’ve put in for so many years gone to waste, and to lose all your prestige in the clan!
Otherwise, you shall wait to claim the corpses of your sons!
Not only do I want to force you, but I also want to piss you off! You will have no idea to deal me back as I boast all that I’ve gained in front of you! I shall be arrogant in front of you, but at the same time, make you unable to throw your temper on me!
Such unreasonable, but completely rogue-like and powerful means were carried out by Chu Yang without any heat. As he joked along, his enemy had already been utterly defeated.
And the whole process was baffling: How would he… have so much power?
The Chu clan had already settled in the Upper Three Heavens for more than a thousand years. But it still didn’t have such power to instruct the law-enforcement officers! Chu Yang only came for a month, but the entire Flat Mountain Ridge had changed its face.
How did he do it?
This was a mystery!
Watching Chu Yang exiting the hall, everyone pondered: Is the Chu clan going to change completely? These few years, the Chu clan had already changed once. That was when Chu Feiling’s son disappeared, Chu Feilong had taken the chance to rise up.
But now, Chu Feiling’s son was back. Why is everything reversing its course and steering towards the direction that it’s supposed to be going?
Especially for those people who were within Chu Feilong’s camp but fortunately weren’t implicated with Chu Yang, they were even more panicked. They felt that their heads were no longer on their necks anymore.
This time it’s these three people. Who else would it be next time?
Everyone knew that at this stage, Chu Feilong only had two paths to take. The first one was to give up his fight over gaining the clan’s authority, and settle himself as a second master of the Chu clan; the other would be to fight with Chu Yang till the end!
But, would Chu Feilong be convinced to retreat after holding on to great authorities for so many years? Almost impossible.
But if he continued to fight on, would he defeat Chu Yang? Thinking of Chu Yang’s strategies just now, everyone still felt chilly on their backs. As for Chu Feilong continuing his battle with Chu Yang… it didn’t look promising for Chu Feilong.
Everyone revealed complicated looks as they watched Chu Feilong collapsing on the ground.
After a long time, Chu Feilong finally stood up slowly. Wiping away the blood on the corner of his mouth, he said lightly, “Today’s event was so unexpected.”
He turned around to look at Chu Feiling. After a long time, with a cold, stiff and deadpan expression, he muttered, “Big brother, your son is really good.”
Chu Feiling smiled and said, “Although Yang Yang is young and a bit wayward, on the whole, he’s still considered a good child.”
Chu Feilong let out a long sigh and said, “Yes. Yang Yang has wits and tactics. But, what a pity that his cultivation is abolished. Otherwise, if the Chu clan has such a young master, he’ll have boundless prospects.”
After a sigh, he went off.
With these words, everyone’s hearts pounded again.
Yes, regardless of how much backings Chu Yang had, his wasted cultivation was still irreparable damage to him. How could the inheritor of the clan only be a scholar?
Yang Ruolan shoved Chu Feiling.
Chu Feiling asked blankly, “What?”
“Go out!” Yang Ruolan sighed in her heart and dragged Chu Feiling out. If he had half of the wits of his son, he would long have defeated Chu Feilong…
The three winks that Chu Yang had made meant: Chu Feilong would definitely lay hands on that three people’s family!
The last glance at Chu Feiling meant: Let my father save them!
This was a great opportunity to rope in people.
“Let’s disperse,” Chu Xiongcheng, seeing that his two sons had left, also stood up with a heavy face and said. Then, clasping his hands behind his back and burying in thoughts, he went back into the inner hall.
He had a turmoil of emotions, and didn’t know whether to be happy or sad.
As he walked, he finally let out a long sigh and muttered to himself, “Hope that Feilong would comprehend Yang Yang’s true intentions, and not stir up troubles from then on… If that’s the case, then can I really die with no regrets…”
When Chu Feiyan returned to the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall, he realized Le’er lying on the lounge. As she shook her feet back and forth, the lounge also shook, and her small body rose and fell like a wave. She looked to be enjoying herself very much.
“Fourth uncle, you’ve come back? How’s the matter going on?”
“It’s hard to say in a few words… It actually developed into such a state…” Chu Feiyan frowned and described everything that happened in the hall in detail, then he sighed, “Argh, Yang Yang… is too harsh this time around, but he did so with great pains…”
“Harsh? With great pains?” Chu Le’er frowned her thin brows and looked at Chu Feiyan strangely, “Fourth uncle, why did you think this way?”
Chu Feiyan was stunned and said, “Yang Yang has made use of the law-enforcement officers to arrest Tenghu and Tengjiao in a promiscuous manner. He forced your second uncle to a dead end and almost made him to die from vomiting too much blood. He even forced your second uncle to kill his own subordinates, causing their blood to scatter all over the hall. Isn’t he too harsh??”
Chu Feiyan said, “But Yang Yang’s intention was to disperse your second uncle’s camp, and give him an opportunity to gasp for breath and to turn over a new leaf. And this is completely for your grandfather and the whole clan. Didn’t he do so with great pains?”
Chu Feiyan said, “Yang Yang looked like cruel and merciless, but in actual fact, he’s too soft-hearted… But this is a great thing.”
“Big brother is too soft-hearted?” Chu Le’er asked as he looked at Chu Feiyan strangely and finally couldn’t bear to laugh, “Fourth uncle, you actually thought this way? This… I have to say that I’m surprised.”
Chu Feiyan scratched his head and said perplexedly, “You didn’t think of it this way? Then what did you think?”
Chu Le’er thought for a while and finally said, “Big brother… is going to kill people!”
Chu Feiyan instantly became shocked, and his eyes widened, “Kill people?!”
“If I didn’t guess wrongly, yeah,” Chu Le’er thought speedily, and said, “And, fourth uncle… Big brother isn’t soft-hearted, but…”
The little girl thought for a while, but couldn’t think of any suitable adjectives, so she could only say, “His heart… is as calm as ice! To people whom he cares for, ice is pure and good, but to his enemies, ice is heartless and cruel.”
“Very unfortunately, second uncle belongs to the latter!”
Chu Feiyan widened his eyes and thought for some time, but he shook his head, saying, “I still don’t understand.”
Chu Le’er sighed and frowned deeply, then she said a bit helplessly, “I’ll say it this way… Big brother has forced second uncle into a state where second uncle couldn’t help but let go of his hold. And at the same time, Chu Yang is bringing his relationship with second uncle to an absolute end! Fourth uncle, I don’t understand why you only think from the good side, and not from the bad. You must know that in this world, the developments of many things are vastly different from that which is presumed. Once evilness rears its ugly head, no matter what, goodness won’t be able to suppress it!”
Chu Feiyan said in confusion, “This… I know. But what has this… got to do with Yang Yang?”
Chu Le’er held her small head and groaned, “Fourth uncle, say for yourself, second uncle has put in a lot of effort to establish a reputation in the clan that far outweighs that of big uncle, and he even seems to be a bit more powerful than grandfather. For so many years, will he get used to this type of life?”
“Of course!” Chu Feiyan blurted out.
“Yes, if there’s a person who sparked out at this time and broke all the schemes of second uncle, will second uncle be grateful towards this person? Or will second uncle harbor intense hatred towards him and want to kill him?” Chu Le’er continued to ask.
“Of course, he’ll want to kill… Urgh…” Chu Feiyan immediately took a tumble after he blurted out, and sweat began to creep up his forehead.
“Isn’t this over?” Chu Le’er pricked up her delicate brows, “Big brother means this, because he has already seen through second uncle’s mind!”
Chu Feiyan was dumbfounded.
“This time, big brother unreasonably makes use of law-enforcement officers to arrest Tenghu and Tengjiao. If he insists, he could completely use this unreasonable method to defeat second uncle completely, or even kill him. If the law-enforcement officers could help big brother to kill Xiao Yulong and arrest others so randomly, then they would also be able to kill Chu Feilong! I believe in this. Because second uncle isn’t as influential as Xiao Yulong; If Xiao Yulong can be manipulated to death, why not the same for second uncle?” Chu Le’er analyzed unhurriedly.
Chu Feiyan nodded and said, “But why would Yang Yang not get rid of your second uncle now?”
“Of course, it’s not the right time now,” Chu Le’er smiled lightly and extended a finger, saying, “Firstly, big brother has just returned to the clan and doesn’t know the household issues well, and all these are controlled by second uncle. If second uncle died at this moment, the Chu clan would stir into a mess. So, big brother cannot take risks now.”
“So, he could only divide his strategy. Only after he tears apart all the power of second uncle, would the best opportunity to take actions come.”
“Secondly, second uncle is only confronting big brother now, not other people. If big brother kills other people, he’ll appear to be cold-hearted and narrow-minded. Moreover, big brother is a junior in the clan, so he would also have to carry himself a charge of parricide. He would also leave other people an impression that he’s cruel and inhumane. This will become a fatal scar on him if he has some ambitions that he wants to accomplish. Thirdly, if second uncle dies at this time, grandfather and big uncle will be upset and be guilty for all their lives. After all, second uncle didn’t do anything that’s obviously immoral. Big brother has to care about this point…”
