Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 839 Which side do you stand on?
“Fourthly, big brother has already calculated that it’s impossible for second uncle to stop here! So, although everyone thought that big brother is giving second uncle a chance to repent, in fact, it’s otherwise.”
“If second uncle does anything to big brother, or frame big brother, and big brother catches him, no matter what big brother does to him, no one will criticize him. Moreover, big uncle and grandfather will also feel more at ease: You’ve already been given a chance, why didn’t you still realize your error?”
“Or… when are you going to stop creating troubles? At that time… it would be the hour of doom for second uncle. And no one will sympathize with him… Today, you killed your closest subordinates, and tomorrow, you want to hurt your nephew or niece… What’s the purpose of allowing you to continue to live?”
“By then, big brother won’t be seen as inhumane, but instead, he’ll be seen as someone who’s righteous and he kills second uncle because he’s forced to do so. Isn’t pardoning second uncle and giving him chances time and again a testament to this? At that time, big brother’s reputation in the prestige will definitely override that in second uncle’s heyday… How can a master… who kills his own people without thinking of their past relations… be trusted? Their thoughts to leave the clan will then be formed!”
Chu Le’er looked at Chu Feiyan, smiled quietly and said, “Fourth uncle, you’re an honest person, I advise you… to not think too much on this matter.”
Chu Feiyan heard his cold sweat dripping down his body as he widened his eyes. His body was ice-cold, and his heart was overwhelmed with fear.
At this moment, he truly understood what’s… Machiavellian!
Chu Le’er’s layered analysis had torn apart all the fantasies in Chu Feiyan’s heart! The reality was too cruel.
Such cruelty made Chu Feiyan stunned.
“Fourth uncle, big brother… is a very good person,” Chu Le’er said, “But big brother… is also a very horrible person.”
Chu Feiyan felt his throat become dry, and asked, “Why?”
Chu Le’er said, “For people whom he cares for, big brother is somebody who’s better than all the gods and deities in the world. He’ll risk whatever it takes to ensure the happiness and safety of these people; But for his enemies, he’s also a very cruel, despicable, shameless, and even unscrupulous person! He’ll use whatever noble or despicable means to make his enemies fall into doom… In big brother’s heart, he’ll never let go of anything, even if he has to… So, if he starts to deal with someone, he will deal with him till that person dies, or until he himself dies!”
Chu Feiyan swallowed a few mouthfuls of saliva and said, “This makes sense.”
Chu Le’er frowned and revealed a puzzled look, “But… fourth uncle, there’s one thing that I don’t quite understand…”
Chu Feiyan closed his eyes, seemed to have guessed what she’s going to ask. He asked, “What?”
“Why is the conflict this time so intense?” Chu Le’er asked miserably, “I don’t understand this. Second uncle has held authority over the clan for so many years, and he has already gotten used to it; While I can also see that big brother is not someone who has a lust for power, let alone big uncle… If second uncle didn’t engage in these matters, big brother and big uncle wouldn’t have fought with him.”
“As for other people, you, fourth uncle, have no intention to fight for power; my father wasn’t at home for so many years, and he also couldn’t meddle into this… Second uncle is absolutely an intelligent person. So why would he want to establish such a strong opponent?”
Chu Le’er asked puzzledly, “And, on the first day that big brother came back home, I heard that it was second uncle who suggested big brother to cut his fingers to test his identity…”
“I’m more confused over this. As a younger brother, when the child of his big brother, who has been missing for 18 years, was found, he should be extremely happy! Why would second uncle behave this way?”
“And the attempt to snatch away the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall was obviously done by second uncle… Why did he do this? Fourth uncle, second uncle gives me this feeling: As long as my big brother is here, he’ll feel uneasy… I really don’t understand…”
Chu Le’er looked at Chu Feiyan.
Chu Feiyan felt that a pair of sparkling eyes shot on his face like two sharp arrows. Instantly, his face twitched once.
“Argh… I only guessed a bit for this matter…” Chu Feiyan said with some hesitation, “I guess, he probably has some relations… with the disappearance of your big brother eighteen years ago…”
Chu Le’er took a huge gasp of cold breath, “Fourth uncle, you’re saying…”
“Hush!” Chu Feiyan covered Chu Le’er’s mouth, looked around and said, “This is only my guess…”
Chu Le’er screamed two sounds and struggled away from his hands, saying, “But he’s your second brother… If you don’t have deep suspicions, why do you suspect him?”
Chu Feiyan’s face turned ugly. Not only he had such speculations, but Old Master Chu also had the same speculation. It’s only that they didn’t say it out.
Not many people knew that Chu Feiling brought his wife back to her clan. And Chu Feilong wasn’t as steady in doing things as he’s now. The most important thing was… Once Chu Feiling had any accidents, the biggest beneficiary would be Chu Feilong.
But so what if Chu Xiongcheng knew or suspected him?
He couldn’t execute his son after he had just lost his grandson. Wouldn’t he be tearing the entire Chu clan apart?
“I see… Then, it’s no wonder…” Chu Le’er muttered, “If that’s so, then… Not only second uncle intends to deal with big brother, but big brother has also the intention to deal with second uncle. This shows that big brother has been planning for this for a long time already. This is also why he took second uncle a notch down after he had just woken up… This wasn’t something that an ordinary nephew would do to his uncle after they’d just reunited after a long time…”
Chu Feiyan thought about this and involuntarily felt his hair standing on ends.
Chu Le’er’s words had exactly hit the nail on the head!
Yes, this was very obvious. Chu Feilong’s counter to Chu Yang was definitely not what an uncle would do to a nephew, while Chu Yang’s reaction to Chu Feilong was definitely not what a nephew would do to his uncle after reunion!
But everyone thought that Chu Yang was making a helpless counterattack at that time… No matter what, how could a nephew who had just returned home lay such heavy hand on a blood-related second uncle?
A little girl actually had perceived better than everyone else! Chu Feiyan felt embarrassed.
“If this is so, I’m afraid big brother and second uncle will put up a cruel fight,” Chu Le’er said as he started to look worried.
Chu Feiyan lowered his head and felt as if his chest was loaded with a heavy stone. Thoughts of fratricidal fighting inundated his mind, making him breathless.
“Fourth uncle, if big brother and second uncle really put up a real fight, which side will you stand on?” Chu Le’er asked as she slightly tilted her head and looked at Chu Feiyan. Her small, young face revealed a look of deep significance.
“Where should I stand?” Chu Feiyan was baffled.
One side is my blood brother, the other side is my nephew that I admired the most, the son of my big brother whom I respected the most. Which side should I stand?
Chu Feiyan was dumbstruck, and after a long time, he said dryly, “If that moment really comes… I… I should well die first. I don’t want to see the scene of fratricidal fighting.”
“But… even if you die, you can’t prevent it from happening!” Chu Le’er said as she looked at Chu Feiyan with clear eyes, which even looked a bit compelling.
“Then, which side would you stand on?” Chu Feiyan asked.
“I? …” Chu Le’er smiled and responded, “In terms of interests, second uncle once helped me to buy medicines with his own purple crystals, and big brother also helped me to treat my illness.”
Chu Feiyan was stupefied.
“From the emotional aspect, other than my father and mother, even my own blood brothers keep me at a distance. Ever since I became sensible, second uncle has never hugged me before, but big brother often holds me in his arms. Second uncle views me as a bottomless hole that can’t be filled with money, but big brother looks at me warmly and affectionately, just like the way my father does. He allows me to indulge in his warmth, and gives me a sense of support and happiness.”
Chu Le’er turned around and said softly, “Fourth uncle, you shall guess, which side I’ll stand on?”
There was no need for Chu Feiyan to guess because the answer was already laid clearly before him.
“If big brother wants to go through the jungle of swords, I’ll back him up. If big brother wants to be pirates, I’ll make clear of the obstacles that’re in his ways. If big brother becomes a devil, I’ll definitely turn myself into a monstrous,” Chu Le’er said and smiled, continuing, “This has nothing to do with gratitude, fraternal love, or my illness, because other than my parents, he’s the only one who treats me sincerely. Fourth uncle, you’re good to me too, but you have qualms. But big brother has no qualms at all! So, I also have no qualms at all in being nice to him!”
Chu Feiyan’s face turned red, then pale. He stood in sorrow and didn’t speak for a long time. As if the breeze that had brushed past the Earth also carried a trace of bleak chillness.
It was autumn.
Chu Feilong didn’t return in the afternoon that day. Chu Feilong finally couldn’t wait any longer. He knew that Chu Yang was waiting for his own news. If Chu Feilong didn’t lay his hands on that three families, Chu Yang would probably not bring back his sons.
Under the urge of his wife, Chu Feilong drank three bowls of spirits in a shot, and with red eyes, he carried his big knife and off he went.
But just as he was about to start his murders, he ‘coincidentally’ bumped with Chu Feiling. Chu Feiling successfully saved the three innocent families from Chu Feilong’s knife.
Chu Feilong was almost driven insane!
Because of one sentence by Chu Feiling, the entire matter became irremediable, “Second brother, you’ve already killed all the three people. Are you actually planning to exterminate their families?”
This was what Yang Ruolan taught to Chu Feiling, and she gave a deadly command: If you don’t say it, we shan’t have sex forever…
Chu Feiling was honest and had deep emotions. She knew that if she didn’t force him to a certain extent, he wouldn’t be able to say these words.
Seeing all the three families being saved by Chu Feiling and they were now casting hatred looks at himself, Chu Feilong felt a fit of uneasiness in his chest and abdomen, and he spat out another mouthful of blood. Shuddering all over his body, he landed his ass solidly on the ground, and he muttered in a low voice: I will definitely… definitely… kill your family with the cruelest methods! Definitely!!!
