Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 882 Do you understand?
Nangong Shifeng and his four brothers left the Flat Mountain Ridge unreluctantly. They sighed continuously.
What they said was nothing more than, “If we knew this earlier… we’d have…”
But it was too late now.
“What’s done is done. Let’s quickly leave now,” one of the five said sadly, “We didn’t rob only for this time… we only obtained the Nine-Leaves Flower after putting in all our might in fighting with the wolves. I originally thought that this was a rare good and we can get a good fortune out of it. I didn’t expect that after running thousands of miles to come to this South-East region, we had instead offended our buyer… And it seems that we’ve offended an important person…”
“Yes, it would be bad if he came to rob us,” another one suddenly realized. Every one of them was born a robber. They were very mindful in this area.
“We’ve really overreached ourselves,” Nangong Shifeng said dejectedly, “Alas, let’s go to the Zhuge clan and sell this to the Medicine Banquet. I believe that we can earn a lot of purple crystals.”
The five people hastened their pace and swept out of the Flat Mountain Ridge like a gust of wind. After crossing a hill and turning at a corner, they saw chains of mountains in front of them. It was then they heaved sighs of relieve.
“We’re finally out. I’m really afraid that we’ll be blocked,” one of them wiped off his sweat.
“Yes, you’re out. But it should be good enough till here,” a cold voice rang. Following this sound, a spell of bleakness and solitude suddenly spread out in the air.
The five people were shocked. They turned around and saw a black figure standing composedly under the pine tree in front of them. From the looks of it, he had already been waiting here for a long time.
The sword spirit was taking control of the body now. He was waiting here to carry out the robbery.
If I can’t buy it, why can’t I steal it?
“It’s you!” Nangong Shifeng recognized him immediately. It was the man in black clothes and veil. Instantly, his wits were scared out of him; From the bleak and solitary breath, he knew that this person was a big character!
Then he sensed the horrible aura surrounding this person. It was like a huge mountain pressing down on him. He further confirmed: This person that he offended not only had a strong background, his cultivation was also terrifying. From just his aura, Nangong Shifeng had understood one thing: If they fought a battle, he himself would absolutely die!
The most important reason that Jinjian Organization could survive for so long was that Nangong Shifeng, the leader, was capable of dealing with all kinds of people! To be soft when confronting superior people, while being stiff in front of inferior people! This was the paramount law that dominated the Nine Heavens!
“Yes, it’s me,” the sword spirit laughed, “It’s so coincidental. I’ve actually met you again.”
“Elder… What do you want?” Nangong Shifeng asked fearfully.
“I don’t want anything,” the sword spirit said spontaneously, “I missed you, and I want to talk to you. Can I?”
Nangong Shifeng retreated back by a step and his tongue somewhat entangled up, “Elder… This… We can discuss it again. Actually, it’s not that I don’t consider 20,000 purple crystals…”
The sword spirit laughed, “But I can get it without using a purple crystal at all. Do you believe it?”
“I believe!” Nangong Shifeng nodded like a chicken which was pecking on rice, “Big boss, you’re smart, wise and handsome, and you can definitely succeed in whatever you do! Not to mention getting the Nine-Leaves Flower without a purple crystal, you can also get people to pay you purple crystals…”
The sword spirit’s eyes brightened, “Pay me purple crystals? There’s such a good thing?”
Nangong Shifeng said flatteringly, “Yes, yes, big boss, with your unparalleled cultivation, just with one word, everyone would put in all their might to gather purple crystals and bring them to you together with the medicines…”
The sword spirit said excitedly, “Really? How many purple crystals will they give me?”
Nangong Shifeng instantly wanted to cry, “How many purple crystals… do you think is appropriate?”
The sword spirit pondered for a while and said, “Alas, roughly 20,000 purple crystals will do. I’ll be very happy to receive it…”
The garlic-like noses of the five brothers twitched a bit. It looked like five heads of garlic had moved at the same time.
They could originally earn 20,000, but now, they had to pay back 20 000?? How to explain this?
Nangong Shifeng cracked his mouth and said tearfully, “But I don’t have them with me now…”
“Not with you now?” the sword spirit instantly became furious. He had originally come to kill them and rob away the Nine-Leaves Flower. How could he still be merciful? He said, “Are you fooling me?”
At this moment, in the Nine Tribulations Space, Chu Yang said happily, “Wait, wait, let me deal with them!”
The sword spirit was startled and said, “What?”
Chu Yang smiled, “Didn’t you see that the five people are very sensible? If they were other Monarch level experts, I’m afraid they have long become corpses. But, they won’t die if you continue to speak like you just did.”
The sword spirit said, “If I stab them…”
“If you stab them, they’ll really die!” Chu Yang flipped his eyes and said, “It would be too much a pity to get them all killed. It happened that the Medicine Banquet is short of people and I need news from them. It’s good that they’re so obedient…”
The sword spirit disappeared silently, while Chu Yang revived his consciousness.
Nangong Shifeng suddenly felt that the oppressive, bleak and deadly aura in front of him had disappeared. While the man in black was still standing there, he obviously didn’t want to kill people.
He instantly wept happily and said chokingly, “Elder… Elder, you’re really magnanimous… *Sob*…”
Chu Yang sighed, “You’re not easy too…”
“Yes, yes…” Nangong Shifeng nodded his head repetitively, “It’s really hard… to survive in this world…”
“Well, where’s the Nine-Leaves Flower?” Chu Yang dragged his voice.
“It’s here,” how would Nangong Shifeng still dare to be arrogant and clamor to ruin the Nine-Leaves Flower as he did just now? He hurriedly took it out from his chest and held out a small jade box.
“Put it down, we shall talk,” Chu Yang didn’t accept it and motioned him to put it on the ground. Then, he sat down composedly on a branch of the pine tree. Nangong Shifeng thoughtfully moved a big piece of rock with a smooth surface towards Chu Yang, wiped it clean with his sleeves, and spread his coat over the rock. Then he said humbly, “Big boss… please sit.”
Such a gesture of flattering made him really look like a lapdog.
“Erm. You’re quite sensible,” Chu Yang said as he settled down and crossed his legs.
“I heard that you detest the nine great clans a lot?” Chu Yang’s focus was here. If he focused on Nangong Shifeng’s character… this guy would long have died under Chu Yang’s palm.
But these few guys were extremely good at currying favor. They were slick, and liked to bully the weak while they feared for the strong. Chu Yang instantly wanted to utilize them for other purposes.
“It’s more than detest!” Nangong Shifeng said resentfully, “We can’t lead a good life because we’re forced by the nine great clans…” He’s quite clever and eventually understood the meaning behind Chu Yang’s words.
“Erm, I also detest them… I heard that you’re fixed… by the Ye clan?”
Veins immediately bulged out of Nangong Shifeng’s temples, “It’s… Ye Shiyu, that freak! Last time… I offended him… He sent for me to be caught… then he… he… cut it off with a sword…”
“How did you offend him?” Chu Yang said enthusiastically.
“It’s a long story… Last time, someone brought up the matter of the daughter from the Ye clan… I satirized a few sentences, saying that if we knew earlier that Ling Hanwu would retreat, wouldn’t it be good to make whole the pair of lovers… But now, Ling Hanwu killed his own subordinates and still didn’t marry… And this was heard by Ye Shiyu…”
Nangong Shifeng slapped his own mouth, “My mouth is just senseless…”
“You indeed have a senseless mouth!” Chu Yang had the same feeling.
Sure enough, the problem came from his bad habit: If we knew this earlier… how good it would be?
“Do you want to revenge?” Chu Yang asked.
“Yes, even when I’m in a dream!” Nangong Shifeng said definitively. But immediately he said dispiritedly, “But from the state we are in now, what’s there to talk about revenge… Ye Shiyu that freak is wicked. Not only did he disable me, but he had also made me unable to reveal my true face in front of other people!”
He tore down his veil, “You shall have a look… He tattooed the word ‘stupid’ on my forehead, and drew a… penis… on it… I… I… If not for looking after my four younger brothers, I would long have committed suicide! I’m also a man…”
Chu Yang looked at Nangong Shifeng and almost choked… That freak from the Ye clan is really a genius. He’s actually so mischievous…
“He laid hands on you both times?” Chu Yang said strangely.
“It’s once…” Nangong Shifeng wanted to cry, “I always kept it a secret. But then, that freak realized that no one knew about it, and he actually sent people to publicize that I was… by him…”
Chu Yang bore his laughter and pondered, “It’s just a little tattoo. It’s very easy if you want to get rid of it…”
Nangong Shifeng widened his eyes joyfully and blinked.
Chu Yang said, “All of you, come here.”
The five of them came up, not knowing what Chu Yang was up to.
Chu Yang clicked on each of their chests once like a bolt of lightning. All of them felt some pain in their chests, but instantly, the pain disappeared. Chu Yang took out five pills and said, “One pill per person. From now on, you shall work for me!”
His voice turned heavy, “As long as you work for me to the best of your abilities, I’ll not only remove the tattoos on you but also help you to revenge and take back justice from Ye Shiyu, as well as… help your lower body to recover!”
Nangong Shifeng jumped up in joy, and said with a trembling voice, “Really?”
Chu Yang snorted and took out a bottle of liquid medicine, saying, “Don’t move!” With a flash of sword light, a thin layer of skin fluttered down from Nangong Shifeng’s forehead. That whole piece of tattoo had fallen off.
Before Nangong Shifeng could let out a scream, he felt a cool sensation. It had come from liquid, of which half a bottle of it was poured over his wounds. Another half of it was poured into his own mouth.
“Vitality Spring Water?” Nangong Shifeng knew that he was saved. His entire body trembled in excitement, and he grabbed the pill from Chu Yang’s hands and swallowed it down. When the other four heard about it, they also swallowed down the pills.
“Elder, what do you want us to do? Just instruct us!” Nangong Shifeng said.
“It’ll be the Medicine Banquet next Spring!” Chu Yang said lightly, “I need you to go over first… you only need to so and so and so…”
Nangong Shifeng nodded repetitively as Chu Yang spoke.
“You shall take this section of the dagger. There’ll be someone who will be looking for you at the Medicine Banquet, and he’ll be holding the remaining section of the dagger. You only need to do what I instruct you to do… That person will give you the antidote of the poison I set in your body, and he’ll also cure your lower body!”
Chu Yang held out a section of a broken and irregular-sized dagger, and passed it to Nangong Shifeng, saying coldly, “Do you understand?”
