Chapter 272 – You want to try? I also want to try.
“We don’t dare. I am Chu Fei. (TLN: Non-Chu) This is my eldest brother, Chu Nan.” Chu Yang smiled warmly.
“Chu Nan.” Gu Du Xing immediately glared at him and yelled, “Shut up!”
But Ao Xie Yun and company already showed a look of mockery in their eyes: Chu Nan? Virgin? Hmm, this name is really meaningful. It really inspires people’s imagination. (TLN: His first name means south, but the combo sounds similar to the word virgin.)
“May I ask what the names of you young masters are?” Chu Yang shyly smiled with the innocence of youth and said, “Us two brothers really like to make friends.”
“I am Mo Tian Yun.” Mo Tian Yun smiled. Looking at his face, no one could imagine that he was the person who just mobilized everyone against these two people, but he also said, “It’s really shameful to say that I was worried just now. Haha. Now that you are here, I realized that I became a bad person for nothing.”
“Oh?” Chu Yang smiled and looked at him. A look of admiration showed on his face, “Young master Mo is truly frank. I like those kinds of people.”
Mo Tian Yun smiled softly. His countenance showed that he was speaking from sincerity, “Being in Jiang Hu, there are some things we have to be more concerned with. It has gradually become a bad habit… Young masters Chu, please don’t look and laugh at me…”
“How could we!” Chu Yang said sincerely, “Our father taught us countless times that we must be cautious to survive in Jiang Hu. Not only is Brother Mo cautious, you are also candid. This makes you a rare friend indeed.”
Mo Tian Yun, Ao Xie Yun and company all felt a little surprised.
No one knew for sure how long this young master Chu had been standing outside. Whether he heard a lot or a little, they were certain of one thing. He definitely heard; he might not have heard everything, but he heard the last part at least.
No matter what, he should not have been so warm toward Mo Tian Yun like that. What was this? This young master Chu seemed to speak without caring about societal standards.
“I am Ao Xie Yun.”
“I am Luo Ke Wu.”
“Remember it well. My name is Ji Zhu.” Ji Zhu’s self-introduction caused the solemn-looking Tu Qian Hao, who was standing in a corner, to laugh. What a clown…
The edge of Chu Yang’s mouth twitched. He thought that it was lucky that the punk Ji Mo was not here. Otherwise, with the two brothers in one place, it would be hard to determine who was crazier…
After a wave of introductions, the atmosphere in the room became livelier.
“This trip to Continent Center Citadel is truly exciting.” Chu Yang smiled subtly. Each of his actions showed the cultivation of a descendant from a privileged background.
“I heard that the people here are fighting for Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber?”
“These are just baseless rumors from the common people; it’s not credible at all.” Mo Tian Yun smiled, “Young master Chu comes down from Upper Three Heavens; you should know that, thousands of years ago, there were no such things as Ask the Heavens Sword Saint and Underworld Saber Saint.”
“Such lies can only fool mindless people. As for us, we just want to watch the show and laugh.” Mo Tian Yun spoke very eloquently.
Just earlier, he was insulted by Ao Xie Yun without any way of fighting back. But now, surprisingly, his gaze and his countenance looked as if nothing had happened.
“Oh… it’s fake?” Chu Yang smiled and then changed the subject. He talked with everyone about things up in the heavens and down on earth.
Because he had the identity of a young master from a super clan in Upper Three Heavens, everyone was cautious not to offend him.
However, their conversation was not at all warm.
With the exception of Mo Tian Yun adding a few lines trying to cover his tracks, only the two brothers Gu Yan Yang and Gu Yan Yue were flattering these two young masters Chu.
In regards to this Gu Du Xing was somewhat feeling annoyed. When he was living in the clan, these two brothers did not like him. Whenever they had free time, they would find reasons to fix him; they even hated the fact that they could not kill him. Acting like this in front of so many people, do you have any sort of integrity?
As for the other people, they kept a fixed distance. They purposely tried not to get close, but did not want be offensive either. They kept a reasonable distance.
As for Dong Wu Lei, Xie Dan Qiong, and Tu Qian Hao, they only introduced themselves and did not speak further. They sat quietly in their spots and drank tea.
Li Xiong Tu’s voice was the loudest. He and Luo Ke Wu sat at the same table arguing as if there was no tomorrow.
Ji Zhu collapsed on the table playing dead. His whole body looked like it had no bones.
However, when Chu Yang suddenly changed topic, all of the young masters simultaneously took notice.
These geniuses thought like that. If you want to talk about it, I don’t want to hear. But if you intentionally try to hide it, I would be especially interested.
Furthermore, everyone knew well what Chu Yang’s identity represented. This told them that he was even more well-informed than they were. Why did he change the subject? Could it be that there is some mystery within it?
“Young masters Chu… only two of you came?”
Ao Xie Yun’s dark gaze flashed.
“Ah…” Chu Yang’s eyes blinked, and he said, “Not exactly.”
Ao Xie Yun understood and smiled, “No matter what you do, people always follow you around. It’s really annoying. Haha.”
“Yes, yes.” Chu Yang acted as if he had found a kindred spirit, “Brother Ao really understands how people feel.”
After laughing and joking around for a while, Chu Yang pulled Gu Du Xing away from Gu Yan Yang and Gu Yan Yue’s encirclement. He said goodbye to everyone and returned to his room. Before leaving, a joyous look flashed on his face and quickly disappeared.
Ao Xie Yun waved his arm, and two martial experts from the Ao clan immediately appeared at the door.
“What do you think?” Ao Xie Yun asked.
He looked down on Mo Tian Yun, and he was Mo Tian Yun’s foe. But in this moment, he was actually having a discussion with Mo Tian Yun. It was because, in this aspect, Mo Tian Yun had abilities that other people did not.
“These two people were clearly led here by Du Fa Cai.” Mo Tian Yun said solemnly.
“Yes.” Ao Xie Yun agreed.
“They are obviously here to check something…” Mo Tian Yun frowned.
“This has some implications.”
“When they left, they were very happy.” Mo Tian Yun snorted.
After only exchanging a few lines, the two mortal enemies had confirmed their suspicions and immediately stopped talking.
Ao Xie Yun immediately stood up and went out.
Mo Tian Yun also left with his two bodyguards.
The two saw each other as a tool to verify their suspicions. Once they had used each other, they immediately went their separate ways.
There was also a contemplative look on Xie Dan Qiong’s face. A little after Ao Xie Yun left, he also followed suit.
Soon, Ji Zhu, Luo Ke Wu, Dong Wu Lei, Tu Qian Hao, and Li Xiong Tu all left. In addition, each person had a reason. Fatigue, hunger, headache….
The common room, with only the two Gu brothers and some other people remained, had a very empty feel.
And these people were truly the ones that did not realize anything.
Like Chu Yang thought, some schemes could only be used on geniuses. Against ordinary people, or even slow ones, they were completely useless.
Afterward, Gu Du Xing went out with his fluttering white outfit.
A while after, Chu Yang left Heaven Reaching Tower in front of everyone’s watchful eyes.
But the young masters of the clans in Middle Three Heavens did not make any moves. It was not until the afternoon that Chu Yang and Gu Du Xing came back one after another. Yet, no one moved.
The sky grew dark; the bodyguards of the great clans started to move out.
One after another, they left the inn in the darkness of night.
They all had only one purpose: Research.
Snow continued to fall over Continent Center Citadel. Outsiders arrived endlessly as their number grew. Diwu Qing Rou’s Golden Horse Riders Department caught countless people each day.
“Those Middle Three Heavens clans still haven’t made any move?” Diwu Qing Rou looked out his window. Outside, there were several slim and beautiful bamboos.
“There has not been any movement.” Gao Sheng smiled and said, “If they know that this is false, how can there be any movement? They are just here to train since the timing is right; they would never be willing to join in this competition.”
“Mm, it’s good that there is no movement. As long as they don’t participate, we still have control.” Diwu Qing Rou slowly took two steps forward, “But the fact that King of Hell Chu has yet to make any move is beyond my expectation.”
“Prime Minister, you mean to say?”
“He went through thousands of hardship to get here and cause trouble. The moment he caused such earth-shattering chaos, he was taken advantage of by me. If it were you, how would you feel?” Diwu Qing Rou said.
“Extremely angry.” Gao Sheng said frankly.
“But King of Hell Chu has not made any move. Plus, he is also not stopping. He seems to not notice the fact that he is being used by me. This is truly out of the ordinary.” Diwu Qing Rou frowned, “What would his next move be?”
“King of Hell Chu is not supposed to do nothing…” Diwu Qing Rou muttered, “How would he counter my upper hand?”
“Prime Minister, our upper hand is certain. Even if King of Hell Chu is a genius, this is still Great Zhao, not Iron Cloud. Or, King of Hell Chu could be in tears at this very moment.” Gao Sheng reassured.
“No, perhaps other people would give up, but King of Hell Chu definitely would not.” Diwu Qing Rou said definitely.
Then, he suddenly frowned and said, “I heard that two VIPs arrived at Heaven Reaching Tower today? Plus, Du Fa Cai himself, actually came out and greeted them respectfully?”
“Yes. According to the information, they are two young masters from the Chu clan of Upper Three Heavens.” Gao Sheng replied.
“Chu clan? Chu?” Diwu Qing Rou frowned. This word Chu struck a nerve.
“Prime Minister, you suspect that it is… King of Hell Chu?” Gao Sheng asked cautiously.
“It’s hard to tell.” Diwu Qing Rou quietly thought for a while, and then let out a long sigh, “Young masters Chu… Young masters Chu… Even though the young masters of the great clans are not making any move, they are all gathered at Heaven Reaching Tower. If there is chaos at Heaven Reaching Tower that would be true chaos.”
“If they are young masters of Upper Three Heavens… they are truly valued guests!” Diwu Qing Rou slowly said, “If they are valued guests, I will come to greet them early tomorrow morning.”
“Prime Minister, you will come to greet them yourself?” Gao Sheng stammered in surprise.
“If they are indeed young masters from Upper Three Heavens, I have no plans to lower myself.” Diwu Qing Rou said softly. From his tone, it was not clear as to what he was inferring.
