Chapter 333: A freak combination of circumstances
Translator: Novel Saga Editor: Novel Saga
[Even Young Master Yu couldn't recognize his agility skill, martial techniques and sword-play... what kind of martial arts was he using?] Diwu Qing Rou couldn't dare to imagine. However, judging by Young Master Yu's expression, he felt that the man was actually telling the truth.
Diwu Qing Rou was puzzled. [Could it be that... is this really true? But how is it possible?]
Young Master Yu was certainly telling the truth. After all, was deceiving Diwu Qing Rou an easy matter? In fact, Young Master Yu had actually recalled the day of the fight to get the inspiration for saying this.
"His martial power was far inferior to mine. But he relied on fantastic martial arts to balance the scales, and put me in a position of slight disadvantage," Young Master Yu said in a heavy tone.
Diwu Qing Rou frowned.
"And then he went away," Young Master Yu concluded.
Diwu Qing Rou glared at him thinking, [why didn't he elaborate?]
"I asked him about his identity, but he just smiled and did not say anything." Young Master Yu said, "But I think that he was neither from the Middle Three Heavens, nor the Upper Three Heavens!"
This statement was indeed true.
Diwu Qing Rou nodded and thought, [This makes sense. Young Master Yu, and I, would've surely known about him if he was from the Middle Three Heavens or the Upper Three Heavens.]
"I have always had this guess; but I don't know whether I am allowed to say it," Young Master Yu's countenance was serious as he lowered his voice. Diwu Qing Rou immediately tensed up.
"This person... could he be the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword?" Young Master Yu frowned and looked at Diwu Qing Rou.
Diwu Qing Rou's complexion suddenly changed.
He suddenly felt that this theory... was near-perfect.
[This person has no history, and his martial techniques are non-recognizable. He managed to match up with Young Master Yu even when he had a much lower cultivation... ]
[Perhaps there is no such person... besides the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword. Finding this individual might be very challenging ah.]
[But... this matter may become somewhat troublesome if he actually turns out to be the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword.]
[An ancient legend said that the Nine Tribulations Sword shall emerge to replace the nine super clans of the Upper Three Heavens. But the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword must suppress the older generation of the nine super clans to build new great super clan.]
[If this is the case, then wouldn't the plundering of my medicine storehouse be regarded as the beginning of my clan's downfall?]
Diwu Qing Rou frowned, and started pacing back and forth. He lifted his head to look towards the sky. His face had colors of deep thought as he murmured, "If it really is the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword... and he robbed the medicine storehouse... ah... this seems a little odd."
"Eh?" Young Master Yu was astonished, and said, "You also think that this guy is the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword?" In his mind he thought, [this can't be, right? Did you just believe what I said?]
"According to your description... he should be." Diwu Qing Rou thought deeply and said "His sword-play, martial technique and agility skill were not recognizable. He was able to pin down a peak level expert despite having a low cultivation and martial power... and his first objective is to target the nine super clans."
Diwu Qing Rou sighed and said, "Brother Yu, if this guy is actually the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword... the trouble might be very big!"
He exhaled a long breath and said, "The entire Upper Three Heavens... will see a period of interregnum. Can you imagine how big a disturbance that would cause?"
Young Master Yu blinked and said, "I know the Nine Tribulations Sword's master comes to change the existing pattern. But let's not forget that the previous Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword established these nine super clans, and they have ten thousand years of accumulation; that should be more than enough to deal with the subversion the current Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword may cause. As far as the overthrowing rule is concerned... it seemed that he isn't capable of that yet."
"The world has already shaken twice since the Nine Tribulations Sword has emerged. Only twice!" Diwu Qing Rou's point of view on the Nine Tribulations Sword was completely different, "He has only obtained two fragments, and can still fight on equal terms with you... Brother Yu, the Nine Tribulations Sword's master has at least 7 more chances of growth... "
"That is really out of the ordinary." Young Master Yu said, "However, I am just guessing; not ruling out the possibility that this guy may not be the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword. If you find the wrong guy... don't blame me!"
He thought inwardly, [you... go and find the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword. Go at once, ok? It has nothing to do with me... you two can fight and die together for all I care!] Young Master Yu was very proud and thought, [Chu Yang, I f*king didn't let you down this time, right? You better not say that I am not loyal... ]
Little did this guy know that the mountain of lies he had made up would actually turn out to be the true background of Minister Chu...
Diwu Qing Rou nodded and said, "I know you are just taking a guess, but it has still alarmed me! This matter... must not be ignored."
Diwu Qing Rou was no longer angry once he realized that his culprit could possibly be the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword. On the contrary, he was somewhat terrified and anxious.
His first reaction was to go back and get to the heart of this matter without any delay.
"Brother Yu, thank you so much for today," Diwu Qing Rou said. Diwu Qing Rou realized that he had made a huge mistake. He had only considered King of Hell Chu and Tie Bu Tian as his biggest opponents in the past. He was just realizing that his vision was really very narrow.
[What is unifying the Lower Three Heavens compared to commanding the entire of Nine Heavens Continent?]
[My real opponent should be the Nine Tribulations Sword's master who has appeared after ten thousand years.]
At this moment, Diwu Qing Rou felt as if he had achieved instant enlightenment.
No matter how this Lower Three Heavens' dynasties would struggle for power and hegemony, his next step would be to remain aloof from that. He would want to prepare for a final showdown with the Master of the Nine Tribulations Sword.
Of course, he must first become the overlord of the Lower Three Heavens. After all, that was also his desire. This was to be done before the main battle with the Nine Tribulations Sword's master.
"En, you're welcome," Young Master Yu felt very strange. [I've no idea why this guy is thanking me? I obviously haven't said anything worthy, right?]
Diwu Qing Rou was about to leave, but stopped to ask, "Brother Yu, I was on the boat as I listened to the immortal song during the day. So why aren't you allowing me to get on the boat during the night? This is still puzzling me."
Young Master Yu sneered and said, "It is your fault for coming at such a weird timing!" He recalled that miserable incident from a while ago, and said gnashing his teeth, "My heart has not been clean lately. But I figured out a way to fix that. I was preparing to drink the 'wine' when you arrived at the worst possible timing. You ruined my mood; you still want to get on the boat? Dream on!"
"Ruined your drinking mood?" Diwu Qing Rou scratched his head like a foolish monk and said, "Are you saying that I can't drink a cup of wine with you?"
"... " Young Master Yu got uncontrollably furious, "I meant a woman like wine, got it?"
Diwu Qing Rou immediately understood and his face became uncontrollably heated. He coughed twice and said, "Such being the case... Brother Yu, you taste your wine properly... I will take my leave now... "
He felt very relieved inwardly, [it turns out that this guy was about to enter the port when I interrupted him. That's why he came out as if something very important had been interrupted. No wonder he looked like a pervert on... aphrodisiac.]
Young Master Yu snorted and squinted towards the sky. He completely ignored Diwu Qing Rou.
Diwu Qing Rou turned around and left.
On seeing Diwu Qing Rou walk away, Young Master Yu grunted as if he had finally freed himself. He then flew up like an eagle and landed on the boat. Afterwards, he stealthily arrived in front of the door and coughed. After that, he composed himself and gently knocked on the door.
With a squeak, the door opened.
Young Master Yu grinned with pleasure, and immediately tried to step inside.
Suddenly a beautiful and icy face came in front of him, and blocked his way, "What are you doing?"
Young Master Yu was startled. He stammered, "I... I have... drink... yet to drink that wine!"
"What wine?!" Jun Lu Lu asked angrily.
"This... " Young Master Yu was somewhat disoriented. [What is going on? Why has the soft-spoken and gentle Jun Lu Lu suddenly changed her demeanor?]
He blinked and said, "Then... why not I just come in and tell?"
Saying this he walked towards the inside.
The door ferociously closed. It almost hit him in the nose when he hurriedly dodged aside to avoid the disaster.
He heard Jun Lu Lu speaking bitterly from the inside, "Wine? You want to drink wine? You better not think that it will be this cheap! Humph! Smelly man! There's not one good thing about you!"
Young Master Yu stood helplessly in front of the door, staring blankly.
"Ah ha ha ha..." Chu Yang, who was secretly watching this whole time, could not help but laugh uncontrollably. He squatted on the deck and laughed till his stomach started to ache.
"Why are you laughing?" Young Master Yu and asked angrily out of shame. The tent of his crotch had unknowingly subsided.
"I am laughing at you... you are really too... " Chu Yang laughed as his whole body trembled, " ...too ... cute!"
Young Master Yu cleared his throat and angrily said, "I came here to get a drink; what are you making of it?"
"I see. You came here to get a drink... sure enough. But you still couldn't drink!" Chu Yang said and started laughing again, "There's no point of your masculinity... you can't even drink the wine."
Young Master Yu said angrily, "How will I get to drink if I can't go inside?"
Chu Yang laughed heartily. Then, he took a few steps and said as he patted Young Master Yu's shoulder, "You are no good at this. Come, I will teach you a few moves to handle women... "
Young Master Yu had made a blunder.
He was very wrong. He thought Jun Lu Lu was his property. Hence, he was feeling very sure... ordinarily, if a man takes a woman for granted... she would make him suffer a little no matter how willing she is!
If a woman summons a man, a man will brand her as cheap at once, won't he?
Jun Lu Lu had passionately devoted herself to Young Master Yu for the past several years; how could he not know that? Earlier, he felt that he wasn't prepared to take up this responsibility.
Furthermore, Young Master Yu had apprehensions that he could live a thousand years because his cultivation level... but Jun Lu Lu... was only a little stronger than an ordinary female. Her life span would come to an end at hundred or two hundred years...
What would he do at that time?
How would he tread the remaining road alone?
That was his biggest concern.
However, Chu Yang relieved him from his biggest concern, and woke him up. [You could live a thousand years, but what about her? Her life is very short; won't you give her the happiness that she longs for in this little time?]
[Aren't you crueler than time itself?]
[Life is bitterly short. Why do you hold back?]
Since Young Master Yu realized this, he wanted to make up for it. So, he decided to... drink a large amount of 'wine'. He thought that this would give him confidence, and would make things easier for him. But... he was unable to drink any of it.
The two guys sat in Chu Yang's room. They held their wine cups as they chatted. The two would mischievously laugh like wolves and from time to time; their laughter was enough creep people out.
This carried on until Young Master Yu complacently told how he had played Diwu Qing Rou. He narrated how he mentioned the Nine Tribulations Sword's master to deceive Diwu Qing Rou. From the triumphant look on Young Master Yu's face, one could tell that he was immensely proud of himself.
Chu Yang was dumbstruck.
