Transcending the Nine Heavens Chapter 258
The crowd was like a tide. It roared as it rushed in.
The citadel gate was not small; it opened immediately. The width was about enough for more than six horses to go in side by side. But the moment the door was opened, the martial experts rushed in from all directions…
The next moment, they forcefully shoved and pushed each other into a chaotic clump!
Since the citadel gate opened, hundreds of people cramped into one place. At this time, no one could go through. Loud cursing resounded to the sky.
“Your mother! Shoving your ancestors!”
“Hey hey, you’re squishing me to death!”
“F*, you want to kill me…”
The most outrageous thing was there were two tall surly men with full beards in the crowd. They were pushed into one space. They tried to shove, but they unexpectedly were unable to beat the crowd. They were a head above the rest of the crowd. People could see that their faces turned red and their beards practically became erect as their figures squished against one another. Face on face, nose on nose, and mouth on mouth squeezed together…
They immediately spat at each other’s faces…
This kind of phenomenon happening in front of everyone immediately caused an uproar of laughter. While everyone were cramped to the point they could not move, they still were not able to hold back their laughter. But this laughter caused an unexpected result. Their stomachs contracted and then expanded. There was an immediate increase in pressure…
“This is Jiang Hu! These are the people of Jiang Hu!” Chu Yang watched the situation in front of him and could not help but laugh, “If it was the military, this situation would not happen even if there were a million people going through the citadel gate! These people total no more than ten thousand, and this laughable situation actually happens…”
“A motley mix!” Gu Du Xing gave an extremely accurate description.
“Exactly! Compared to the military, the people of Jiang Hu are a motley mix! These people, all of them have much high cultivation than ordinary soldiers! In fact, one person could fight against a group of soldiers! But if a thousand Jiang Hu people like this fight against a thousand soldiers who have been properly trained, then the losers would surely be the Jiang Hu people! Plus, the one thousand soldiers will not suffer much losses…”
Chu Yang said seriously, “Therefore, there is a saying in the military: One Jiang Hu person is powerful; ten Jiang Hu people are terrifying; one hundred Jiang Hu people are ordinary; and one thousand Jiang Hu people… are just a pile of meat waiting to be chopped up!”
Gu Du Xing thought carefully for a while before finally nodding his head in agreement.
“That is why Jiang Hu people are only suited for Jiang Hu.” Chu Yang gave his conclusion, “Never expect them to do anything big!”
At this time, the jam at the citadel gate was finally gone. They had started to rush past each other as they entered Continent Center Citadel. Everyone’s face was red, and each person looked as if Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber were displayed right in front of his face for the taking…
It was not until more than half of the people went in that Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing lifted their legs and walked slowly into the citadel.
Only after a few steps, they saw two people punching and kicking on the ground. These two did not stop rolling right outside the citadel…
It was indeed the two people who were “kissing” earlier. Naturally, the two felt they could no longer face anyone…
Chu Yang smiled and walked around them as he advanced into the citadel. But even after he was a ways off, he could still hear the loud sounds of kicking and punching along with cursing and painful howling…
“What do you think the guys are currently doing?” Chu Yang smiled.
“I am guessing… Two people are definitely taking the jade calling card and making themselves Diwu Qing Rou’s guests. As for the other two, they are sure to be stirring up trouble…” Gu Du Xing said with certainty.
“Yes, when I assigned them to their tasks, I thought about this.” Chu Yang laughed, “Ji Mo is a lazy punk. If he could sit, he would not stand. Having a place to rest, he would surely not let the opportunity pass him by. Plus, Rui Bu Tong loves thievery. Being a guest at a great house is too much of a convenience… Hahaha…”
Gu Du Xing’s eyes widened. This big brother even calculated thievery in to his plans…
“As for Dong Wu Shang, he is a fighter; he naturally likes to cause trouble. The more people there is for him to fight, the more excited he becomes… So I am sure he is still fighting…” Chu Yang held out a finger.
“Isn’t that also Luo Ke Di?”
“Well, Luo Ke Di is also a king of troublemakers, but this guy has some control… So when there is a powerful opponent, Luo Ke Di will come into play. He will drag Dong Wu Shang away and hide!” Chu Yang smiled with interest, “If it is only Dong Wu Shang alone, he would not run away until the last minute. This is too dangerous. Plus, Luo Ke Di is not the same as before…”
“So that’s it.” Gu Du Xing finally understood Chu Yang’s arrangements. He did not just consider their personalities but also all the things that could happen, the dangers they could run into, and what method would be used.
“Since that’s the case, why did you switch the sword and saber?” Gu Du Xing wondered, “You know full well that Ji Mo is good with swords and Dong Wu Shang is good with sabers… Why did you gave Ji Mo the saber and Dong Wu Shang the sword? Is this not putting his beard on her face?”
“Not so.” Chu Yang said, “First, Ji Mo has his own sword; I cannot let him use a different sword over a long period of time. This will cause his spirit to lose some connection with his own sword…”
Gu Du Xing’s eyes brightened.
Chu Yang’s words were transcendent. Someone who was not a sword expert would not have been able to say such words!
Each sword, even made with ordinary metal, had its own spirit! Spirituality!
This was the reason.
“It is the same thing with Dong Wu Shang. In Dong Wu Shang’s case, he is too persistent with sabers. This should be a good thing, but there is also a disadvantage to that. It is the fact that the way of the saber and the way of the sword share common ground. This is especially true with the agility of the sword. Before reaching the peak state, this is not achievable with the saber. Besides protecting Dong Wu Shang’s connection to his saber, I want Dong Wu Shang to also be enlightened in the agility of the way of the sword in this deadly battle.”
“The more dangerous it is, the more likely he is to break through. This is most advantageous to his training in the way of the saber!” Chu Yang said casually, “If I told him this beforehand, it would not be effective. So I intentionally planned so and hoped that Dong Wu Shang will be enlightened…”
“So that’s it.” Gu Du Xing was pensive. He could not help but feel even more admiration for Chu Yang. Chu Yang’s thorough thinking had reached the point where every little thing mattered. Who would have guessed that such a simple set up with one saber and one sword could have such deep intentions?
“At the time, didn’t you say that you would arrange some setup?” Gu Du Xing said, “Why don’t you need to all of a sudden? Instead, you let Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong go?”
“Is this not a setup?” Chu Yang said in surprise, “Is my setup not already used?”
“Used?” Gu Du Xing’s eyes widened.
“At that time, in front of Cheng Yun He, I revealed Ji Mo’s group name. Of course, they would be able to investigate those guys’ background. And the situation then was extremely extraordinary; who would believe that it was without King of Hell Chu’s involvement? At least, someone on Diwu Qing Rou’s side would surely see through this.” Chu Yang smiled in satisfaction, “So the moment they arrived in Great Zhao, Diwu Qing Rou’s people would think that… I am among them… Understand?”
“So they will watch Ji Mo’s group closely in hope of finding you with them?” Gu Du Xing asked in shock.
“That’s why I had already told Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong to go directly back to Middle Three Heavens after everything is done. And when I am in Great Zhao, I will absolutely not have any contact with them.” Chu Yang smiled.
“I wonder, when that time come, how Diwu Qing Rou and Cheng Yun He would feel when they see Ji Mo and Rui Bu Tong…” Gu Du Xing shook his head smiling. “I am sure they would be very annoyed.”
“Hahaha…” Chu Yang laughed loudly.
“Knowing that those two are brothers of King of Hell Chu and not even dare to touch them…” Gu Du Xing could not help but laugh, “Touching them would be provoking two great clans; they dare not let them go freely, but they also dare not get close. With the thick skin of these two punks…”
Gu Du Xing sighed, “I cannot imagine how Diwu Qing Rou feels…”
Diwu Qing Rou was definitely not feeling good.
It could be said that his mood was terrible.
From out of nowhere came one Ask the Heavens Sword and one Underworld Saber. Diwu Qing Rou was so furious his chest almost burst!
Diwu Qing Rou never showed his anger even if his troops were defeated. Losing a few hundred thousand soldiers in a day, he would not even have half a frown on his face. But right now, he was so angry that his orifices were blowing steam.
With Nine Heavens Volume in hand, all major events that had happened in the past thousands of years were recorded inside! What ridiculous Ask the Heavens Sword Saint was there? And Underworld Saber was not even worth discussing…
And yet, such a sword and saber had suddenly appeared… Would this not annoy people? Plus, the craziest thing was… this could not be explained.
Diwu Qing Rou had once sent someone to bring out the Nine Heavens Volume to explain. In the end, it was almost burned by the people.
“Aren’t these things written by you people?” A King level master took a look and said authoritatively, “F*! Who are you trying to fool with this tattered book? Do you think everyone in the world is dumb? This kind of thing… I can buy as many as I want with a few dozen taels!”
That kind of talk made Diwu Qing Rou furious.
He had never seen someone who was so irrational. But it was also because of this that Diwu Qing Rou recognized the seriousness of the situation! If a King level master could so easily believe in this rumor and not even bother to accept an explanation, what about the others?
Ordinary people in Jiang Hu would be even less rational.

In the Prime Minister Manor.
“Yun He, what about that Ji young master?” Diwu Qing Rou frowned, “Those saber and sword are not brought here by him, right?”
“The two of them are really carrying swords. Young master Ji has a sword, and young master Rui has a dagger.” Cheng Yun He said cautiously, “In my opinion, the sword of that young master Ji is not Ask the Heavens Sword.”
“Ask the Heavens Sword…” Gao Sheng sneered, “What is this Ask the Heavens Sword? It’s just a conspiracy! That young master Ji is Ji Mo; I will go and see him tomorrow.”
“Even if Ask the Heavens Sword is indeed a conspiracy, we can no longer undo it!” Diwu Qing Rou sighed and said, “This move of King of Hell Chu is truly beyond my expectations.”
