From the depth of Mo Tian Yun’s eyes, a trace of satisfaction and schadenfreude appeared.
Obviously, Mo Tian Ji’s speaking out of turn had invoked the wrath of the elders.
He stood quietly for a while then quietly sat down. His face still maintained a calm look, but the iciness in his eyes gradually grew heavy.
Mo Tian Ji had wanted to walk out, but he was worried that there would be no one to help his little sister if he left! Therefore, he had sat back down.
“The clan has decided…” Mo Xing Chen glanced at Mo Tian Ji with a blameful look and said, “First, stop providing Mo Qing Wu with cultivation resources. From today forth, she would treated as an ordinary disciple.”
“Second, Mo Qing Wu’s right to inherit the title of Lofty Red Dust will be revoked. Another outstanding female disciple in the clan will be chosen to inherit this title.”
“Third, Mo Qing Wu’s position as a core disciple of the clan will be revoked. Her guardian will be removed.”
“Fourth, Mo Qing Wu’s inner court privilege will be revoked. From today forth, she is to move out of the inner court.”
“Fifth, revoke her existing benefits. The clan will now treat her differently.”
With each announcement, Mo Tian Ji’s face grew redder until it finally became completely pale. His two hands formed tight fists; he did not even notice that his nails had dug deep into his palms…
Mo Qing Wu remained standing there with her head down. She continued to look the saber at her chest seemingly not hearing anything that what being said. For a young child like her, such a treatment was indeed very cruel.
Each announcement from her father was no different from thunder exploding in her head! She felt dizzy as if the whole world had went away from her!
“Father!” Mo Tian Ji finally could not control himself and stood up, “I have something important to report!”
Mo Tian Ji’s voice once again interrupted Mo Xing Chen. As a contemplative person, Mo Tian Ji knew very well what consequences his action would have, but at this moment, for his sister, he decided to take the risk once.
Only, he did not know and was not sure that his action would be good or bad or whether it could cause greater injuries for his little sister. He had carefully weighted this matter and decided it would be better left unsaid. However, he had changed his mind! If he did not speak up at this moment, his father would conclude his announcement, and his little sister would be finished! Her whole life would be doomed!
While he was uncertain, and this was risky, Mo Tian Ji chose to fight back!
“What is so important?” Right now, Mo Xing Chen snapped as he stood in front of everyone. While his voice was gloomy, it made Mo Tian Ji feel happy.
This was his father giving him a single chance!
If the elders were to open their mouths first, everyone would have attacked simultaneously, and there would be no chance for him to speak.
“Have you noticed… the thing that is in Xiao Wu’s arms?” Mo Tian Ji gritted his teeth as he made the final determination to speak up.
He had originally wanted to keep this saber a secret and let his little sister keep it to protect herself. But in this moment, this saber was Mo Qing Wu’s greatest advantage.
As long as the clan valued this saber, his little sister’s position would not be so bad! At least it would provide her with a better situation! Retaining some good treatment…
But it was not certain that she would be able to keep the saber! Mo Tian Ji had decide: In the worst case scenario, I will take bake that saber for little sister one day!
But the saber’s greatest use right now is to give littles sister some breathing room! A chance for her to grow!
“This saber?” Mo Xing Chen asked suspiciously.
“Yes! This saber is a gift from Xiao Wu’s savior!” Mo Tian Ji said solemnly, “This saber is an ancient treasure and a rare masterpiece! Plus, it also has the name ‘Dreaming of a Gentle Dance Saber’! The fact that it ends up Xiao Wu is heaven’s will!”
Mo Tian Ji did not say it directly, but the moment he spoke those words, everyone understood his meaning: This is an ancient treasure with Mo Qing Wu’s name carved on it. This is a coincidence, but it is also heaven’s blessing!
How could a person with heaven’s blessing become disabled?
At the moment, everyone’s eyes rested on Mo Qing Wu!
However, Mo Qing Wu lifted her head and looked at Mo Tian Ji. She could not believe: Why did second brother tell them about this saber? Don’t you know that this saber is the only thing I could keep…
“Xiao Wu, let me see your saber.” After Mo Tian Ji spoke, Mo Qing Wu remained quiet and just stood there. So Mo Xing Chen could not help but speak up.
Mo Qing Wu was now in a chaotic state of mind; nothing was real to her. Her father who had always loved her suddenly became a stranger. The elders who normally doted on her were now acting as if they did not even know her. Even her dear second brother did not even dare to look at her. Moreover, he even told them her biggest secret…
Given her age, she still did not know that if everything was taken from her as her father announced, her position in the clan would fall from the peak to the bottom. She would be even lower than a concubine!
As for the words after, she did not even hear them. She had completely crashed already. While the body was still there, she was unable to think, unable to act…
“Little sister, give me the saber…” Mo Tian Ji walked in front of her. He knelt down and said softly, “Let father see it.”
Then he immediately reached out his hand to grab the saber Mo Qing Wu was holding. When he reach out his hand, his palm was already soaked in sweat. This saber was what his little sister loved most, and it was also her greatest hope at this moment.
Without this saber by her side, how would she fare?
But regardless, this was currently the only way!
Feeling that someone was about to take her saber, Mo Qing Wu unconsciously tightened her grip. She yelled loudly, “Don’t take my saber! Don’t take my saber!”
After she screamed, her eyes were filled with tears. Two streams of tears ran down her white cheeks and fell to the ground.
With an aching heart, Mo Tian Ji said, “Little sister, I am not taking your saber; father only wants to see it.”
Mo Qing Wu held tightly onto Dreaming of a Gentle Dance Saber. Her eyes were filled with fear, “Don’t take my saber… Brother Chu Yang gave this to me…”
“Xiao Wu!” Mo Xing Chen yelled, “Give it to me!”
Mo Qing Wu felt her whole body went numb, and the saber fell into Mo Xing Chen’s hand. The moment the saber touched his hand, Mo Xing Chen was immediately shocked! The saber was almost as light as nothingness!
“My saber…” Mo Qing Wu yelled out. She looked at her empty hands in terror, and tears did not cease to fall down.
Right after, Mo Xing Chen pulled the saber out of its scabbard!
The entire great hall was filled with a red glow. Within the red glow was twinkling starlight!
The two or three dozen people in the great hall simultaneously stood up.
Only looking at that blinding red glow was enough to know that this saber was an incomparable treasure!
They could not believe that someone would give such a saber to little naïve girl to play with. Right now, a thought rose in the minds of all of the clan’s members: Could this person be an idiot?
“Stars, this saber is very light?” The voice from an old man made Mo Tian Ji tremble slightly. His two eyes were glued to the saber that was emitting a blinding radiance!
This man’s name was Mo Wu Xin. He was one of the elders in the Mo clan and also one of the Emperor level masters!
“Yes, the whole saber weighs no more than four ounces!” Mo Xing Chen held the saber without seeming to be the least bit affected.
“No more than four ounces.” Mo Wu Xin took in a deep breath and hastily said, “Let me see.”
Then Mo Wu Xin carefully stroked the saber. His paled face suddenly turned violently red as he muttered, “This is definitely Red Cloud Steel! With Star Iron as well.”
“No! No!” Mo Wu Xin immediately frowned and carefully checked. Then he said in shock, “Red Cloud Steel Essence. Star Iron Essence!”
He carelessly waved his hand, and a sword of one of the clan’s martial experts standing outside flew toward him.
Then he held the saber in one hand with the sharp edge facing upward. The other hand held the sword high in the air and dropped it.
In front of everyone, the long sword gently dropped down on the saber blade. With a soft clang sound, the sword was cut into two fragments and fell to the ground.
The great hall immediately became muted! Everyone’s gaze was fixed in the direction of the saber!
A sword of one of the clan’s masters, how could it not be good? And yet it was freely cut like it was a block of tofu. It did not even make a loud sound as it was cut into two!
There was even a sheath!
How sharp was this saber?
In all of the Nine Heavens, no such heavenly weapon had appeared before.
This was a priceless treasure!
Gently tilting the saber blade, Mo Wu Xin muttered, “Dreaming of a gentle dance, who needs earthly fame and fortune… [TLN: Engraving on saber blade.] This saber is definitely beyond earthly fame and fortune…”
“Xing Chen, this saber is definite a top treasure in the Nine Heavens!” Mo Wu Xin lovingly looked at the saber; he could not bear to let it go, “Such a saber coming to our clan is fate! We must… protect it!”
Then he put the saber back into its scabbard and hesitantly handed it over to Mo Xing Chen.
“This saber was given to little sister by her savior.” Mo Tian Ji took a deep breath and said, “This savior said that the saber only belongs to little sister.”
“Little sister is the true owner of this saber!” Mo Tian Ji said sternly.
Everyone understood his meaning.
This saber belonged to Mo Qing Wu. It was given to her by a benefactor of the clan. It only belonged to Mo Qing Wu and no one else.
“No one is allowed to let out the fact that this saber is at the Mo clan!” Mo Wu Xin’s eyes flashed as they swept over everyone.
Everyone simultaneously nodded with their eyes ablaze! They all knew what such a saber meant! The precious saber had returned to its scabbard, but the amazing scene from earlier was permanently etched in everyone’s mind!
“Only belong to Xiao Wu?” Mo Xing Chen frowned. Such a precious saber in the hands of a little girl with no future, how wasteful was that?
“Second brother, could it be that you want to use this saber to threaten the clan?” Mo Tian Yun looked at the saber with fire blazing in his eyes, “Second brother, you went a little too far.”

Thanks for the chapter! first?
Mo Tian Ji position in Qing Wu eyes seems to become lower and lower. And wouldn’t it be easier for Mo Tian Ji to help her by making her go out of the clan with the excuse of practice in lower heaven and have her live with Chu Yang instead? Let her live here would just be a torture. Even with the sword revealed, she could only maintain minimal position while people would still look down and bully her anyway.

Exactly my thoughts plot holes I tell you plot holes……
I hate people who do what you’re doing, instantly cry “plot hole!” for situations they obviously cannot fully understand, as they’re not part of it themselves.

Only plothole I saw in here was Qing Wu not hearing her brother defend her inside the room unless she was clearly absent minded when MTJ was defending her — which I call BS since the author didn’t state it.
She is only nine years old dude… She was already scared listless and you expect a little kid to understand complicated things? All she knew was everyone shouting angry and her saber taken.
Nine-years-old or not, she’s finding solace from her brother. The way the author phrased it on the previous chapter that she couldn’t hear any convo going on and contradicting himself later on on this chapter, makes it more maddening. To quote: “Each announcement from her father was no different from thunder exploding in her head! She felt dizzy as if the whole world had went away from her!” Means she’s lucid at least, or should we say, for the author’s convenience of character development later on.
wtf are you talking about retard? You do realize this is a fucking MADE UP story and not a recounting of historical events right??? you can’t possibly be this retarded right??? This is clearly a better option than having her stay at the clan. “for situations they obviously cannot fully understand, as they’re not part of it themselves.” Is completely fucking irrelevant and makes no fucking sense. Get back to reality bud.
Yeah but it’s the best she can get given the circumstances
That’s why I said this in the first place. She could only given that at best consider the circumstances so why bother. If she got strip of everything, people on the top would stop caring about her and probably not gonna mind whether she go out to lower heaven or not. As for people of lower position, Mo Tian Ji could dealt with them. Now however, the clan won’t let her go out because of the saber.
Because Chu Yang is not strong enough. If the Hei Mo people got a hold of the info that Mo Qing Wu was staying on the lower heavens, what would they do?
There’s a reason why Mo Qing Wu had to hide under the heavenly sword pavillion even if her Yin Three Meridians were broken. She wouldn’t stay on the surface and declare to Hei Mo people: “Hey, I don’t have yin three meridians anymore so please don’t hunt me anymore!” It’s not as simple as that.
But I’m almost sure that the Mo Clan should have a rule that forbidds people in the clan from killing each other inside of the clan grounds. They can’t manage what happens outside of it so if Xiao Wu were to go to the Lower Three Heavens to train, she could be easily killed by her first brother. Maybe it didn’t happen in Chu Yang’s previous life, but this time she has a precious saber with her… Mo Tian Yun would kill her to get the saber and to make Mo Tian Ji despair and he could even get help from the Hei Mo while keeping them in the dark about the saber to take it after they kill Xiao Wu.
Unless she is by Mo Tian Ji’s side all the time, she would have to stay in the Clan grounds otherwise. But that’s just my guess. Who knows if the Mo Clan is insane and allows clan members to kill each other? But that shouldn’t be the case as those two brothers, while being weaker than the first brother, are still alive.
Yah, but the saber would never have been known if he never mentioned it.
Also, the thing about allowing members to kill each other…. that’s only if they aren’t open about it.
They are allowed to go against each other to temper the other… but open murder is a complete different story…
He was supposed to be a genius master planner yet he keeps getting smacked around and is acting like a noob. Disappointing.
I’m pretty sure you’ve forgotten this, the WHOLE REASON Chu Yang sent her away is because he couldn’t protect her
YEAH!, and above all the fate of Mo clan is doomed if thing goes like this
take bake that saber>> back
thanks for the chapter
This brother is very stupid an idiot……chu yang should kill this f*****
No, he should torture him for several years.
Now if he tells them that the person who gave her the saber is the same person who can cure her they might be more believing.

Good, I hope the family confiscate it and give Chu Yang a reason to end their bloodlines. Mo Tian Ji also can just go to hell for all I care. Worthless older brother and back-stabber. Foolish brother who brings harm to his little-sister. His only grace is that he is Qing Wu’s brother.
Read Mo Tian Ji’s monologues. I’m team MTJ for this one, albeit misunderstood because of plot convenience of Qing Wu that she can’t hear them talking in the room. Like wtf, she should’ve heard her brother defended her before being reprimanded by their father. It’s not like she didn’t hear MTJ request her saber from afar and it’s not like some murmurs were heard while MTJ was speaking.
I just call this bs character development.
She is a kid yet you expect her to understand complicated stuffs.
When she want someone to cover her MTJ just standing silly, now she don’t believe in MTJ anymore.
She only knew that everyone was angry and her saber was taken.
Yet, she’s looking for hope from her brother but didn’t hear him defend her. It’s not that complicated to see your brother defend you inside the same room you were in. See the previous chapter how he defended her btw.
I hope CY annihilates the Mo clan upper echelons. Or anyone that bullies Qing Wu.
Thanks for the chapter.
if Chu Yang know the saber confiscated, he will be mad IoI , maybe in the future will kill all the mo clan, except certain person that have good relationship to Mo Qing Wu.
thx for the chapter ^^
Thank you for the chapter 🙂
Thanks for the chapter translation
right now, i’m more concerned about the first brother Mo Tian Yu. With how twisted he is, and the greedy gleam he has in his eyes, there is no doubt in my mind that he’ll do whatever it takes to get that saber, even if it means killing his younger sister to get it. If he does, he would only seal the Mo Clan’s fate at the end of Chu Yang’s blade
you guys forgot that mo tian ji is the biggest siscon ever, so of course he want lil loli stay by his side, so i understand his action
thanks for the chapter xD
human is really greedy!! poor qing wu~~
i hope chu yang really kill everyone from the mo clan that want to take the saber and hurt qing wu!!!!
Thanks for chapter
Feels like revealing the saber would make more complications than help. Thanks for the chapter
Tian Ji took a gamble, probably to scared the f*cked of Mo clan elders, if a person can easily give Qing Wu a treasure weapon, what other treasure that person will have in his arsenal or what his actual background is, maybe from Upper Heaven!
Tian Ji possibly want to remind those old fogies that they may offend that person if they treat Qing Wu badly or steal the saber, they will incurred a cost they may not able to pay.
I’m pretty sure that the elder clan will take that saber away. especially that devil Mo Tian Yun.
I can’t believe I have to post such a simple comment after reading what everyone was saying about Tian. It is like everyone forgot that Chu Yang wanted Tian to reveal the sword to everyone. That was his plan 50+ chapters ago, he knew no one in the clan will believe Tian that a man in Lower Heaven can save MQW, and the sword was to protect MQW status until he can gain the power to help her out. He knew that the clan can’t move against MQW because there is no one that foolish that would give such a treasure to a little kid unless the man himself is so powerful that a sword which can rival most of Upper Heaven would be considered trash.
It’s how the author had written it that’s why there’s a lot of antagonistic opinions about MTJ, which is clearly a weak writing brought by the previous chapter. See my posts above if you want the reason. The only thing I could foresee from this development is that MQW wouldn’t escape her ‘fate’ that the nine sword whatever could change or regress herself from isolation once more. Unless of course the saber could change how other people will treat her inside their clan.
Thanks for the chapter XD
Went a little too far hahahhaha I dobt want mo tian yun to die anymore I want him to live what happend to Griffith for his entire life
Kuuh… this cliff…. IS SO F#CKING HUGE!!!!!
Thanks for the new chapter! Honestly, bringing up the saber seems like it will increase Xiao Wu’s turmoil.
All hail Tie Yang… The Harem king
Thanks for the chapter! The Mo clan is signing up for extermination by bullying Xiao Wu so hard.
thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter! ahhh poor Mo Qing Wu she has to suffer so much because of her terrible family looks like Chu Yangs gonna end up destroying the Mo clan at this rate
Mo clan is doomed. Sigh…. Idiots.
