(TLN: Play on words here, Yóu yùn de yùnqì is the title; Yun means luck.)
Diwu Qing Rou stopped speaking. He poured himself another cup of wine and drank it slowly.
The bright full moon slowly drifted toward the west. In the gazebo, the shadows of the trees also slowly moved with the moon.
“I want to personally write a letter to Tie Bu Tian to bring back Number One’s family.” Diwu Qing Rou suddenly spoke quietly after drinking five or six cups of wine in row.
“This… do you think Tie Bu Tian will agree?” Han Bu Chu’s heart was startled. Diwu Qing Rou was writing the letter himself; this was an expression of his attitude toward the situation! He is placing his own name into Tie Bu Tian’s hand, so he could be insulted?
How much prestige would he lose with this?
“Tie Bu Tian will agree!” Diwu Qing Rou said casually, “Send orders to Dong Wu Fa. Tell him to attack two of Iron Cloud’s cities at the quickest speed, and open Iron Cloud’s door!”
“I want to tell Tie Bu Tian that if he returns Number One’s family, Great Zhao will give him back these two cities!”
Han Bu Chu was once again startled, but did not dare to say anything. This was clearly a rash decision that Diwu Qing Rou had made because of his anger. This was proof of the great impact Number One’s death had on him.
“This will be the last time I, Diwu Qing Rou, do things emotionally!” Diwu Qing Rou looked up at the sky and said softly, “Number One was worthy of my doing so!”
Han Bu Chu finally understood.
The person Diwu Qing Rou valued most in life was Number One. In other words, only Number One could cause Diwu Qing Rou to lose control of his emotions.
But Number One was now dead! Therefore, Diwu Qing Rou acting decisively like that was also a way of saying farewell to his past.
Another big battle! No matter how many people from the two countries died, it was just a funeral rite for his brother! It was also to bury Diwu Qing Rou’s life from ten years ago!
From here on out, Diwu Qing Rou would not have any more weaknesses. This impulsive action might seem reckless, but it was also a show of his terrifying power. Plus, Han Bu Chu was certain that Diwu Qing Rou was already prepared with the next step.
“Yun He being in Iron Cloud is not a long term solution. If they are discovered before the two King level masters recover from the injuries, the consequences would be unthinkable!” Diwu Qing Rou’s eyes had started to show evidence of intoxication, but his thoughts remained lucid. He said categorically, “This battle is my warning! The letter is my statement! At that time, Yun He will be there to officially welcome Number One’s family back home. Anyone who dares to stop them will be killed!”
Han Bu Chu sweated profusely.
“Is the family over there really Number One’s family?” Han Bu Chu could not understand why a person like Number One would do such a stupid thing like that!
“Before he left, Number One was ready for anything!” Diwu Qing Rou’s eyes revealed a trace of sadness, “I will nurture and raise his descendants well!”
Han Bu was speechless.
This was something that no one could have imagined. Even Chu Yang did not expect Tang Xin Sheng’s wife and child in Iron Cloud Nation was really his wife and child.
This person was truly a madman!
Iron Cloud Citadel had turned into a boiling pot!
Every place was in an uproar!
The power of the masses was infinite, and the wisdom of the masses was endless.
After Chu Yang had issued his command, the three gangster bosses gathered and discussed with each other. After that they came up a prudent approach: Divide Iron Cloud citadel into five areas, east, west, south, north, and center. Then carefully go through every street and every household.
Then they carried out their duties and herded all outsiders from these five areas into an empty field like pigs. Official Cheng Zi Ang would then work with the justice department to investigate; any suspicious person would be arrested straightaway…
As a result, the citadel exploded into endless chaos. But they truly did discover many spies. Some of these spies did not have any substance and were easily shaken after they were captured. They were the kind without any loyalty and were fearful of death. Plus, they did not know how to keep their mouths shut. After a little “friendliness,” they immediately spilled information about their movements and their comrades on the outside…
In this process, they were able to capture one Silver Knight Rider! This was a true anomaly…
Iron Cloud Citadel’s guards, the military, the royal guards, etc. Almost twenty thousand people joined in this mission.
After searching for two days and one night, the search area was reduced by a half. It was now midnight, but they had to carry on. Especially, the more than ten thousand thugs who were even more spirited as if they were on aphrodisiac… (TLN: Iron Cloud Citadel has a big problem; it has too many thugs.)
Even Cheng Zi Ang could not handle the work; his eyes reddened from staying awake at night. But the three big bosses were bright and full of energy like blooming flowers…
“The situation is becoming more severe! If we continue like this, they will find us before we could succeed!” In his temporary hiding place, Cheng Yun He tried to think of countermeasures.
Yin Wu Fa had recovered thirty percent of his martial energy thanks to the powerful effect of Jade Spirit Ginseng. Kong Shang Xin, on the other hand, did not recover as much. With both of them in this situation, they could not do anything.
If it was just the two of them, it would have been easy. But their issue was they had some fifty or sixty people. If the searching continued, they were too big of a target…
“The only solution is to split up!” Cheng Yun He said, “We have to split up once again to avoid being captured by the enemies. Even if they catch us, the numbers would not match up, and they would have to let us go due to insufficient evidence.”
“No! That would be a dispersion of force; wouldn’t we be sitting ducks then?” Yin Wu Fa said, “In my opinion, we should break out and escape!”
“Break out?” Cheng Yun He said icily, “Twenty thousand soldiers surround the citadel. This is the capital of Iron Cloud, the heart of Iron Cloud Nation. You are insisting that all of us to fly straight back to Great Zhao?”
“Let’s do as Official Cheng said!” Kong Shang Xin said sadly, “Breaking out is absolutely not possible! If a ninth grade Emperor level master was surrounded by twenty thousand soldiers, he would probably die from exhaustion. Let alone us…”
Cheng Yun He frowned and said, “It will be easy for me! I am a scholarly person who does not know any martial arts. They will not suspect me. But everyone else… will be highly suspicious. One impatient person will be enough to destroy everything!”
“Especially you two… your appearances are too obvious. Plus, your wounds have not completely healed. If you get discovered, your situations will not be good!” Cheng Yun He continued, “If you two King level leaders don’t mind, you can hide in this cellar… Would that be okay?”
Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa’s eyes simultaneously rolled in disbelief.
The words that Cheng Yun He was saying were meant for their ears. They were the only two who were the proudest and the least impatient.
The two of them were both King level leaders; such honorable positions. How could they hide in a cellar like mice? That was why he carefully said everything in advance…
“It’s just a temporary measure to avoid the storm…” Cheng Yun He said.
“Fine!” Kong Shang Xin frowned, “I was hunted by people in Upper Three Heavens for seven or eight years; I am used to this crap…”
“Me, too! When I was on an assassination mission back then, I even went into a latrine pit…” Yin Wu Fa held his breath and said angrily.
Cheng Yun He was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.
The place they were hiding in was in the center of Iron Cloud Citadel, not too far from the royal palace. As the saying goes, “it is darkest under the lamp.”
“On another note, I will have to find a way for Gao Wei Cheng to get Du Shi Qing to create some chaos; the problem is that may be too dangerous. Whether Gao Wei Cheng will be able to do this or not… at this point, we no longer have a lot of choices…” Cheng Yun He frowned as he muttered to himself and became silent in the middle of his thought.
“Let’s split up; disperse immediately! If you can, update your status once a day! If you cannot, don’t force it. Your safety is more important!”
Following Cheng Yun He’s order, fifty to sixty people there left as quickly as clouds in the wind. Only ten people remained to protect Kong Shang Xin and Yin Wu Fa. These people were all martial experts; if each of them tried to escape from the soldiers on their own, it would have been as easy as turning their palms over.
Given Cheng Yun He’s arrangement, if nothing unexpected happened, the two King level leaders hiding in Iron Cloud Citadel would not be discovered. Of course they would probably lose a few people, but they would be able to preserve the majority of their force.
You Yun was a Martial Warrior over twenty years old. He had been dreaming of joining Bu Tian Pavilion for a long time. But his cultivation level was too low, he was eliminated at the first round. In his depression, he did not join the rest of the citadel in the manhunt. Instead, he drank until he was completely drunk. After that, he left the place in a barely conscious state; the only thing he could feel was the alcohol rising up to his head. He did not know where he was going; he just needed a place to lie down and snore loudly…
He was suddenly disturbed from his beautiful dream by the need to urinate. Dreamily, with his eyes barely open, he undid his pants and started his business…
Half way through, he finally became a little lucid and opened his eyes to look around. He was standing next to a small pile of wood that someone had placed next to a door…
As the drunkenness wore away, he felt the chill of the autumn wind. He shivered, and urine ran down his pants. He instinctively cursed and used his fingers to pinch the flow. As he was about to continue, a shadow flashed overhead. Right after, three people flew out. And then a whole group of people in black flew out…
You Yun was petrified; he almost yelled out, but was able to recover in to hold his mouth shut with his hands. However, he had forgotten about the internal force that he was controlling before he put his hands to his mouth. It started flowing again, and not an ounce was wasted as all of the urine soaked his pants; yet, he still could not recover from this state…
He vaguely heard two people saying to each other in a low voice, “…King level leader is here… No, here…”
“Silence!” The other person hastily said and flew away…
You Yun’s hair stood on end; he immediately thought of the citadel-wide manhunt that had been going on these past few days… Could it be these people? Hearing them said these words… Could it be that they are inside?
You Yun’s eyes immediately stood up cautiously. Some of the wood from wood pile behind him fell down and made a few soft noises. He hastily held his nose and made couple of cat sounds that he had learned. Then he slowly snuck away… It was not until he was more than a hundred feet away that he ran like crazy. His mind was filled satisfaction: No wonder my father gave me the name You Yun; I really am lucky… My pee can actually find spies; this is truly a credit to the heavens…
