9 Heavenly Thunder Manual Chapter 330-332
Chapter 330 – Finally Meeting Again
“Lord Demon King, there’s someone by the name of Liu Hao who says he is Lord Lightning’s disciple. He’s currently waiting outside the main halls.”
Minotaur Linos immediately stood up, “Quickly have him come in!”
The bull-head had heard Lei Yu mention the name Liu Hao before so he was familiar with it. What he couldn’t believe was that Lei Yu’s disciple had reached the Gold Core stage and managed to pass through the Chaotic Star Sea to get here.
“You are Liu Hao? You are little Yu’s disciple Liu Hao?” The bull-head was acting very warm which lessened his status as Demon King, but he didn’t care one bit.
The burly guy swallowed hard a few times and realized this might be actually true. If the Demon King found out he almost killed this guy, what would happen to him? The burly guy stood to the side completely filled with unease.
Liu Hao was shocked upon seeing the bull-head; is it really a human body with a bull’s head? Isn’t this the bull-head that guards the Palace of Hell? He was thinking this and of course didn’t dare to say those words out loud. He then smiled, “I am indeed Liu Hao. Do you know where my master is? Is he still here somewhere?”
Seeing how informal Liu Hao was acting, Tian Ye felt cold sweat dripping down his back. He gently pulled Liu Hao’s clothing and kneeled down on one knee, “Greetings to Lord Demon King!”
Liu Hao looked at him and realized he was being rude. Just as he was preparing to kneel down as well, the bull-head strode forth and grabbed onto Liu Hao’s hand. “If little Yu knew his precious disciple had arrived in the Immortal World, wouldn’t he be super happy? Hey dimwit, why aren’t you quickly rushing to the Devil King’s Castle to tell Silo so he can pass the message onto little Yu?”
“Ahh! Right! Right!” The burly guy wiped the sweat off his forehead and quickly went out. Liu Hao didn’t hold him accountable for his actions was considered him being fortunate today.
Knowing Lei Yu was really here, Liu Hao was so happy that he almost cried. But he endured; he was going to wait until he saw Lei Yu before expressing his emotions. He then started chatting about random subjects with this weird looking bull-headed monster.
“You brat, it’s really you!” Lei Yu cried out emotionally as Nuo Hu, Ai Er, and Romon came striding in from outside.
Upon hearing that voice, Liu Hao trembled before turning around. When talking about Liu Hao and Lei Yu’s relationship, they were actually very close to each other. If it weren’t for that fateful day when Liu Hao was taking a dump and meeting Lei Yu, the series of encounters would have never happened and they wouldn’t be having today’s reunion.
Liu Hao had transformed from his previous fat self to the current somewhat handsome guy. This was all Lei Yu’s credit. And the current strength he possessed was forced out of him one step at a time by Lei Yu. Lei Yu had showered upon him a grace that was as high as the heavens! The two of them were master and disciple in name, but they pretty much treated each other as brothers.
“Master.” Liu Hao clenched his fists as saliva unconsciously gathered in his mouth. After continuously swallowing a few times, his eyes were also turning red. He trembled as he breathed before kneeling with a “plop” on the ground. “I’ve missed you! I’ve really missed you!”
Lei Yu dabbed a tear from the corner of his eye and quickly strode forth to support Liu Hao. “Stop acting like a girl and talking about mushy stuff like missing me!” Right after that and contrary to everyone’s expectation, he too hugged Liu Hao. “I missed you like crazy too!”
Lei Yu was in a somewhat better condition while tears only dripped down. As for Liu Hao, he had already started crying out loud. The current scene caused everyone to have a lump in their throat as tears formed in their eyes as well.
Minotaur Linos didn’t know but others understood that Liu Hao and Lei Yu had a very close relationship like brothers. How can others not be moved from seeing this sudden reunion?
Nuo Hu cleared his nose as his voice seemed to be an octave higher. “Liu Hao, you only remember your master and not about us?”
Liu Hao let go of Lei Yu and gulped down some phlegm before sobbing a couple more times. A bear hug was unavoidable but Nuo Hu’s figure was huge now making Liu Hao unable to give him a complete hug.
Lei Yu felt gratified because his own disciple listened to his words and cultivated diligently. Attaining his current strength was all due to his own hard work. Even though it was a rather absurd situation when those two met, everything after created memories that would never be forgotten and was always fresh on his mind. For Liu Hao to have gained immortality today was a huge joy to Lei Yu!
After letting go of Nuo Hu, Liu Hao turned to face Ai Er and was a bit surprised. He then choked back a sob and said: “Master’s wife is even prettier now and seems to be different from before!”
“Liu Hao, you haven’t changed one bit and are still so nonsensical.” Ai Er’s eyes were also red which meant she had previously been crying as well.
Liu Hao turned around, “Master, can I give master’s wife a hug?”
Lei Yu didn’t say anything and Ai Er stepped up and hugged him. Liu Hao’s eyes widened, “Wow, it’s very fragrant! Master’s wife, are you using perfume? The smell is very unique!”
“You brat, you’re always spouting nonsense!” Lei Yu half cried and half lectured him.”
“Brother Lightning, congratulations on the reunion of master and disciple!” A familiar voice was heard behind him. Lei Yu turned around and shocked because he only noticed Liu Hao prior and didn’t even notice Tian Ye at all.
“Brother Tian Ye! How come you’re here as well?” Lei Yu asked in shock.
“I coincidentally met Liu Hao and then came here together with him. We were waiting at the Thunder Rune Sect for two years and happened to find out you were here, so we immediately set off for this place.” Said Tian Ye with a smile.
“How come you guys were at the Thunder Rune Sect?” Asked Lei Yu with surprise.
Liu Hao and Tian Ye started explaining everything in detail to Lei Yu. Once they arrived at the part about finding out about the Southern Wild Lands, everyone was stunned.
Liu Hao then touched his nose, “Master, I also brought them along with me!” After waving his hand with the storage ring, a sly look appeared on Liu Hao’s face. Nuo Hu frantically raised his hand to glance at the ring on his own finger.
“Did Ying Ying and Nami really come?!” Ai Er asked happily while Lei Yu didn’t say a word.
“That’s of course.” Liu Hao stepped backwards a few steps and made a thought. Two beams of light then shot out from the storage ring Liu Hao was wearing. The beams of light landed on the ground and two girls in modern clothing stood there staring blankly at everyone.
Everyone couldn’t help but gasp as their stared wide eyes at two familiar faces. Lei Yu also just stared and didn’t know what to say.
The two were none other than Cui Ying Ying and Nami who had been yearning for Lei Yu night and day. Once they saw everyone in front of them, those two were also staring in a daze. This sudden meeting would make anyone freeze and have difficulty reacting.
“Nami, am I dreaming? How come I’m staring at him right now?” Cui Ying Ying’s eyes didn’t leave the man in front of her while she asked Nami next to her.
“I don’t know but I also see him too!” Nami used her hands to cover her mouth but it couldn’t block her shocked expression.
Chapter 331 – Sisters Of The Mortal World
“Ying Ying! Nami!” Ai Er ran up and hugged them both. Those two finally realized they were not dreaming and everything was real before them!
“Ai Er! Is it really you? Is it really you?” Asked Cui Ying Ying as her voice choked back a sob.
“It’s me, it’s really me!” There was no need to ask those questions and respond to them, but when humans were shocked, it’s not strange for them to start doubting themselves.
Lei Yu heavily exhaled as he looked at all these important people in his life that he couldn’t live without in front of him. His heart was already beating out of control and the joy he was experiencing felt like it wanted to come out of his throat. Lei Yu didn’t know what words to use to describe his current emotions; he only knew he was so excited to the point he couldn’t speak at all.
“Lei Yu! After millions of miles, I finally get to see you again!” Cui Ying Ying’s eyes were red but she was holding herself back not allowing the tears to drip out. She slowly raised her jade like hand out in front of her like she wanted to shake hands with Lei Yu.
Lei Yu pursed his lips and pointed at Cui Ying Ying’s hand, “Is our relationship only worth this much?” After saying that, Lei Yu opened up his arms with a light smile.
Cui Ying Ying couldn’t hold back anymore and rushed into Lei Yu’s embrace. She didn’t care that there were people around and started crying. A beautiful woman crying was something that was the most difficult for one to endure, and Lei Yu didn’t know how to comfort her.
She was completely expressing her emotions and no one was able to stop her, so one could only wait until everything subsided. Standing off to the side, Nami’s tears were coming down non-stop because she too wanted to experience such a tender embrace. Ever since that night in the hospital room between them two, Nami’s love for Lei Yu had become something beyond her control. She had always buried that emotion deep in her heart because she felt she wasn’t qualified and too insignificant. She knew Lei Yu’s feelings to the Kou people and felt that since she was one as well, she wasn’t qualified to be with him. But when she became close to all of Lei Yu’s friends, she realized no one looked at her coldly, no one looked down on her, and no one despised her.
Following the flow of time, Nami’s love towards Lei Yu could not be held back anymore and that’s why she came to the Immortal World with Liu Hao. Today, she finally saw the person she had been dreaming of day in and day out. Even though she couldn’t get that tender embrace, standing far away and looking at him was good enough for her.
After a long time, Cui Ying Ying finally let go of Lei Yu. Seeing such a beautiful woman distraught would make anyone’s heart shatter. Lei Yu then smiled, “Don’t cry, you’re looking at me now, right?”
Cui Ying Ying exhaled while trembling and didn’t care about the people present. She then yelled out: “Lei Yu! I love you! I love you! I want to be together with you! Even if I can only standing behind you and see your back, I’ll be happy with that! I know your heart only has Ai Er, and I also know you aren’t someone that plays around with multiple girls. But I just hope to be able to say what’s in my heart… it’s been over ten years now! The feelings I have for you have never changed!” For a woman to be able to say those words out in public, one could see how much in love she was in with the person in front of her. Just this courage alone was enough for everyone to admire her.
Lei Yu’s eyes landed on Ai Er and saw the latter smile while nodding her head. Lei Yu’s heart was extremely grateful. He raised his hand and rubbed the tears from Cui Ying Ying’s face. Her face was very smooth. Even though she was a woman in her thirties already, she still maintained it very well. Her skin felt like a baby’s causing Lei Yu not daring to exert any strength.
As if she had been poked, Cui Ying Ying stood there stunned as her body trembled and wanted to say something. Lei Yu smiled, “We’ll just never separate from each other anymore okay? There’s no need to cry.”
That tone was so warm and gentle that she almost became drunk from it. Cui Ying Ying felt like she was about to melt! It’s been over ten years! Being able to hear those words, even if she were to die right now, she would still be willing!
“I didn’t hear anything wrong right?” Cui Ying Ying recovered and secretly glanced over at Ai Er and noticed her smiling. Only after that did she silently exhale. “What nonsense are you talking about?! This one was just getting something off her chest! What never separate ever again are you talking about?”
Lei Yu laughed. This woman that had always done everything for the sake of him was really too adorable.
“Ying Ying, quit pretending. Everyone knows what those words brother Yu said meant!” Ai Er stuck her tongue out before running over, “I’ve already forced him to give you and Nami a spousal status! You go ask him if it’s true or not!”
“Ai Er, you…” Cui Ying Ying’s eyes widened while Nami to the side felt a buzzing noise in her mind.
“Cough… cough…!” Liu Hao forced himself a cough a few times. “Such an ambiguous scene, can’t you guys save it for the bridal chambers? Look at you all! You’ve completely forgotten about us important figures!”
Ai Er and Lei Yu and everyone present started laughing while only Cui Ying Ying and Nami lowered their heads with a blush. These two women looked like young girls who had just fallen in love and were pulling at the corner of their own clothing.
“What’s going on that everyone’s so happy about?” A voice like a wind chime came from outside the main hall. Everyone turned around while Nami, Cui Ying Ying, Liu Hao, and Tian Ye stood there completely stunned.
A beautiful goddess appeared in front of everyone wearing the same clothes she usually wore. She still wore white silk clothing wrapped around her upper and lower body. The white silk was embellished with golden accessories and below her white neck showed people a partial view of her jade white chest that would cause any man to drool. Her thin waist would make any woman jealous, and her two long white symmetrical legs were completely exposed for all to see. She wasn’t wearing any shoes and her bare feet looked like white jade as well. Her beautiful eyes landed on Cui Ying Ying and Nami which made her a bit surprised. “What two beautiful girls we have here!”
“Your Majesty!” The bull-head off to the side made a slight salute.
Ai Er smiled and said: “Big sister! Let me introduce them to you!” She grabbed onto Telephassa and pulled her towards Cui Ying Ying and Nami.
“They are my good sisters in the Mortal World and they came together here with Liu Hao!”
“They came from the Mortal World? How come I can’t sense that they’re cultivators?” Telephassa asked in confusion.
“It was I who brought them here!” Liu Hao cupped his hands and said in a goofy manner.
“I am master’s disciple!”
Lei Yu knocked on Liu Hao’s head, “You retard! What you just said was equivalent of not saying anything!” He then smiled at Telephassa, “This is my dumbass disciple who had broken through to the Gold Core stage. He coincidentally found out I was here and came.”
After the introductions, Telephassa realized those that were in love with Lei Yu weren’t just her and Ai Er, and that there were two more girls.
“Your fortune with love is truly not bad! With so many beauties devoted to you, you must have done something great in your past life!” Telephassa covered her mouth with a giggle.
“That’s right, even I am envious to the extreme!” Liu Hao sneered.
“You dare to keep spouting nonsense? Just watch me knock your head to mush!” Lei Yu made a gesture like he was about to smack him, scaring Liu Hao into dodging. This made everyone present start to laugh out loud. Even the embarrassed Cui Ying Ying and Nami started laughing as well.
Chapter 332 – A Peerless Blade
According to the customs of the Mortal World, having a dinner with newly arrived guests was a must. The dinner that night was very luxurious and very lively. Nami and Cui Ying Ying gradually became familiar with Telephassa, Minotaur Linos and others. They started having conversations that would never end. Seeing this scene, Lei Yu felt very happy because as long as they all got along well with each other, this would save a lot of trouble for him in the future.
Seeing these four ultimate beauties, a surge of emotion appeared in Lei Yu’s heart. What did people pursue in their lives?
Fame? That wasn’t something Lei Yu bothered with since he often tried to hide his own identity. Money? This was similar to dirt to Lei Yu since there was no difference to having it or not.
There was no need to even mention power and position because Lei Yu didn’t have a single trace of interest in it. Back in the Mortal World’s Tenglong country, Chairman Lin had persistently asked that he create his own army group but he kept refusing. Just from that, one can see Lei Yu didn’t care about power and position. He was a person that didn’t like to be restricted and preferred his freedom.
While these were going through his mind, he couldn’t help but think of one thing that caused a pressure in his heart. The conditions of the Devil King’s soul remnant was simply too difficult to achieve. But in order to expel the dangerous green energy from his body, there’s nothing he could do. Otherwise, even though he had all these beauties in front of him, he wouldn’t have the fortune to enjoy them!
“What’s wrong master?” Asked Liu Hao while he shoved a large piece of roast meat into his mouth.
“Nothing, I was just thinking of something. Liu Hao, how much have you grasped from the Thirty-six Lunar Star technique?” Lei Yu casually asked as he glanced at Liu Hao who looked like he had been starving for over a year.
After quickly swallowing, Liu Hao used his hands to wipe his mouth. “I’ve already fully grasped the first six forms and can easily release the first set of combination.”
Lei Yu nodded in satisfaction. “What about the cultivation method I gave you? How’s that going?”
Without thinking, Liu Hao replied: “I’m stuck at the peak of the [Detachment] stage but cannot breakthrough no matter what. I have no clue what’s going on.”
Lei Yu lightly smiled, “It looks you brat, have really worked hard cultivating these past few years. At least you’re worthy of my mentorship… here, take this!” With a wave, a book appeared in Lei Yu’s hand. This book was considered Lei Yu’s ultimate treasure and he has never brought it out in front of anyone before, yet he still gave it to Liu Hao without hesitation.
Liu Hao glanced at the book strangely, “Heavenly Thunder Manual latter half? Master, this…” Liu Hao knew Lei Yu was treating this as something extremely precious. Not to mention the original copy, even a hand copied one would not have been brought out yet it was easily placed in his grasp.
“Take it; I’ve already memorized everything inside. This is all I can give you now. I have the same words for you; everyone will depend on your own hard work!” Lei Yu patted his shoulders while saying this.
Liu Hao pursed his lips and looked like he was going to cry. Lei Yu then glared at him, “If you dare to start crying, I’m going to take the book back!”
“Eh? Fine, I’m not crying! Not crying at all!” Liu Hao said this with a smile but the tear in his eye couldn’t help coming out a bit.
Ai Er and Telephassa wanted to see the livelihood of the ordinary citizens of the city so they grabbed Cui Ying Ying and Nami out with them. On the main streets, all the demonic cultivators were staring with mouths agape and drool pooling beneath their feet. These four beauties that would cause any man to smile in their dreams all belonged to a single person.
“Brother Liu Hao! My eyes couldn’t recognize Mt. Tai so I hope you can forgive me for my previous offense!” A burly guy holding two bowls of alcohol came over to where Lei Yu and Liu Hao were at. Liu Hao turned to look, “Shit! If it weren’t for how powerful my precious blade was, I would have probably been played to death by you!” But there was a smile on his face, “It was just a misunderstanding, don’t worry about it.”
“Good! Brother Liu Hao is truly a magnanimous person. Come, cheers!” After saying that, one of the bowls was shoved into Liu Hao’s hand and they both downed the alcohol.
“Lord Lightning, brother Liu, you guys keep chatting while I won’t be bothering you anymore!” Lei Yu nodded with a smile while Liu Hao waved his hand before the burly commander left.
“You mentioned something about a precious blade? Also, I’m curious about a matter – how did you know the path towards the Immortal Realm? I remember back then I have never told you these things.” Lei Yu asked in a puzzled manner.
“Master, you must have forgotten about something.” Liu Hao narrowed his eyes with a sly smile.
“It’s that passionate night you had with Nami in the hospital.”
Lei Yu felt extremely awkward as he knocked on Liu Hao’s brain, “Why are you bringing this up? My body was beyond my control that time!”
Liu Hao rubbed his head, “Did you forget that you left something behind in Nami?”
Lei Yu’s eyes widened as he gasped. After swallowing a few times, “You’re not implying that Nami already has my child right?”
“Uh…” Liu Hao froze for a bit before starting laughing for half the day before finally stopping. “Master, you surely have a good imagination. After that night with Nami, you went to the U.S. for over a year. If she was with child, wouldn’t you be notified of it already?”
This manly man Lei Yu couldn’t help start blushing a bit. “Then you’re talking about…” He then suddenly remembered, “You’re talking about the Spiritual Bead of Longevity?”
“That’s it. These past several years, it appears that the Spiritual Bead of Longevity has recovered inside Nami’s body. More than once, it would undergo some dramatic changes and almost take her life. If it weren’t for me taking care of it, most likely you’ll never be able to see her again.” Said Liu Hao.
“How could I have forgotten about this?! I’m really muddleheaded!” Lei Yu slapped his head and then continued: “What about now? Are they any more side effects from the Spiritual Bead of Longevity?”
“You do really care about your own wife.”
“Less bullshit, just tell me quickly!” Lei Yu raised his hand about to smack down causing Liu Hao to quickly reply: “None, none at all! It’s already out of her body now.”
Lei Yu then asked in confusion: “Then where is it right now?”
Liu Hao stood up and waved his hand and a steel blade appeared. The blade was glowing yellow and had a length of 1.6 meters. The handle was about 20 – 30 centimeters and had some strange carvings that looked like dragon’s scale. On the blade portion was an eye catching yellow jewel embedded into it. For such a fine blade to appear caused everyone around to glance over in surprise.
“It’s really a good blade!” Lei Yu couldn’t help exclaim.
“Not bad huh? Master, you don’t know but it was gifted to me by an old senior. He was also the one to tell me how to extract the Spiritual Bead of Longevity from inside Nami. And this yellow jewel is exactly it.”
He didn’t pay attention to it because he was so surprised, but now Lei Yu suddenly sensed a familiar aura exuding in the area. How could he forget this familiar aura that had accompanied him for such a long time?
“Do you know who this old senior is? And what does he look like?” Asked Lei Yu.
