“Isn’t it just Great Zhao? Is that so far away? Don’t think I don’t have any way to catch you! Chu Yang, you are the king of bastards! Don’t ever let me verify your identity. At that time, even if the elder protects you, I will still have to beat you up eight times a day!”
The person in blue ground his teeth and grunted. He raised his arm, and the stone tablet in front of him immediately turned into dust. He stormed away in anger…
However, there was also a little bit of admiration in his mind. Surprisingly, this person is able to foresee my arrival… Such intelligence cannot be trivial. If he is really my nephew… Hmm, he is really an interesting punk…
Imperceptibly, he unexpectedly looked forward to seeing Chu Yang even more…
***** (Walk the Jiang Hu)
Beyond the Heavens Sect…
“Today is also really cold. Junior martial brother, why don’t we have a drink?” Wu Yun Liang wore a black fox fur coat as he walked into Purple Bamboo Garden.
These days, if there was nothing to do, Wu Yun Liang would come here and sit for a while. Meng Chao Ran liked silence, but he was much harassed by this sect master. However, there was no avoiding it. Because Meng Chao Ran tried to kick him out many times, and he still would not leave.
“I am not interested.” Meng Chao Ran sat in the Purple Bamboo Forest. The white snow over the purple bamboo along with his black hair and white outfit looked unworldly and forlorn.
“Not a problem. I am interested.” Wu Yun Liang breathed as he rubbed his hands, “Come here. Let’s talk about your good disciple. Haha, even you could not imagine that your strange disciple could become such an elite character in such a short time period.”
Wu Yun Liang knew that while Meng Chao Ran seemed like he did not care, talking about Chu Yang was like scratching him at the right spot; he would immediately become spirited.
Currently, Wu Yun Liang had reformed Beyond the Heavens Sect a few times and made all of his martial brothers become distant. And his seventh martial brother, Kong Jing Feng, was sent out to do some work by him. Ninth martial brother, Bao Kuang Lei, was also not here. He was sent to Iron Cloud. Right now, the only person in Beyond the Heavens Sect that he could talk to was Meng Chao Ran so he did not mind anything…
“What are we talking about Chu Yang for?” Meng Chao Ran made a show of being annoyed, “These past few days, haven’t your mouth gone stiff from all the talking?”
The edge of Wu Yun Liang’s mouth curved up. Sure enough, the mere mention of his precious disciple had caused Meng Chao Ran to be more talkative.
“Chu Yang is definitely not simple… Why can’t I have a disciple like that?” Wu Yun Liang sighed.
Meng Chao Ran unconsciously showed a smile.
“Cough cough, come over and have a drink?” Wu Yun Liang seized his chance and asked.
“I give up.” Meng Chao Ran nodded and reluctantly walked to get some food and wine.
Clearly he wanted to hear praises for his disciple but pretended to be unhappy. Wu Yun Liang coolly called out, “Tell your little disciple to make a few dishes, will you? Why do you have to do the work yourself?”
“Tan Tan is in closed door training.” Meng Chao Ran sighed. Before, he was slightly happy. Talking about Tan Tan, he was helpless. Since Chu Yang left, besides admiring himself in the mirror, Tan Tan was only interested in cultivation.
He wholeheartedly trained like a madman.
Meng Chao Ran had talked to him a few times, but Tan Tan immediately trained the moment Meng Chao Ran turned away. If he had no other way, Tan Tan would smile stupidly and ask, “Master, these days, have I grown handsomer?”
Only the heavens would understand how Meng Chao Ran felt.
Looking at Tan Tan’s extremely “abstract” face and hearing these narcissistic words, Meng Chao Ran could only wave his arm in surrender, “Go and cultivate. Don’t ask me…” Each time he asked, his master felt as if he was being interrogated.
He did not want to cause a blow to Tan Tan by telling the truth, but telling a lie… the words could not come out of his mouth.
Since he got the Divine Chi Gathering Fish, Tan Tan essentially never stopped cultivating each day.
His advancement shocked Meng Chao Ran. These past few months, Tan Tan broke straight through fifth grade Martial Artist!
Moreover, getting energy from the Divine Chi Gathering Fish, Meng Chao Ran was surprised to find that Tan Tan’s aptitude had started to imperceptibly change in all aspects…
Meng Chao Ran had a feeling that perhaps what he was proudest of in this life were these two disciples.
Why Tan Tan was cultivating like mad, Meng Chao Ran naturally knew. Tan Tan wanted to quickly increase his strength so he could go and help Chu Yang.
Suffice it to say, given Tan Tan’s motivation, how could Meng Chao Ran not support it?
Not long after, Meng Chao Rao came out with a little bit of food and two jugs of wine, “Eldest martial brother, I have to say, could you bring something each time you come here? You carry your mouth over your shoulders every time you come here. Economy is very tough here.”
Wu Yun Liang rolled his eyes and said, “You only need to leave the mountain and find your precious disciple; you will definitely bring back a mountain of gold and silver. I can’t believe a rich person like you is lamenting in front of me.”
“Haha, such thick skin…” Meng Chao Ran smiled so wide his eyes squinted. Opening the wine and pouring, he said, “Eldest martial brother, you have been in Jiang Hu for so many years; have you ever seen anyone who is as strange as Tan Tan?”
“This… such personality, I really have never seen.” Wu Yun Liang brought up the wine cup and took a gulp, “If I have met such a person, I would definitely not forget. Even if I was dreaming, I would have to wake up, motherf*.”
Meng Chao Ran sighed; he frowned and looked at the snow covering all around. After a long time, he spoke, “During this period, something seems not quite right. I don’t know why I feel very bothered…”
“Bothered? Bothered is right!” Wu Yun Liang sneered, “Lately, second, third, fourth, and fifth have been sneaking around; sixth and eighth have been swinging left and right… Little martial brother, have you ever thought that our Beyond the Heavens Sect would come to this?”
Then, Wu Yun Liang laughed at himself.
“It’s because you forced them too much before.” Meng Chao Ran sighed quietly, “Second had some students he was proud of; you used the sect’s tournament to have them and strong disciples of third and fourth fight each other violently. A few even died on the spot… This caused their efforts of many years to go up in smoke. How could they not feel a little resentment?”
“But you know why I have to do that.” Wu Yun Liang said gravely, “You know, I was going deal with the four of them as well… But I thought about our brotherhood of many years; I just did not have the heart to do it. I only eliminated a few disciples; that’s already lenient. I had hoped that they would soon repent…”
“Eldest martial brother, you don’t need to lie when you are talking to me.” Meng Chao Ran looked up at his brother, “I know you want what is good for the sect, and you know what they are doing. But you did not do it because you had other intentions. Plus, you were certain of the outcome. You did not care about brotherly affection. So let’s not talk about that anymore.”
Wu Yun Liang smiled in embarrassment. Then he said with annoyance, “Little martial brother, no matter what, I am still the sect master…”
“Ah…” Meng Chao Ran sighed, “Have you ever seen a sect leader with such thick skin?”
Wu Yun Liang let out a dry cough and said, “Little martial brother, there is something I have to discuss with you.”
“What is it?” Meng Chao Ran became alert.
“What do you think of my daughter, Wu Qian Qian?” Wu Yun Liang tensely looked at Meng Chao Ran.
“Yes. That child is good. She has good aptitude, good temperament, good looks; she is not bad at all.” Meng Chao Ran generously praised Wu Qian Qian.
“Haha…” Wu Yun Liang happily exclaimed, “You see, Qian Qian and Chu Yang… Don’t you think the two of them make a good pair?”
“This…” Meng Chao Ran stroked his beard and frowned, “Eldest martial brother, the youngsters’ business, you and I should not worry about it. Plus, both of them are not here; we need to have their input on this kind of thing.”
He paused a little and said, “While Chu Yang is my disciple, I cannot make arbitrary decisions for him.”
Wu Yun Liang sighed and said, “Fine, I won’t force you. I will just ask Chu Yang when I have the chance. I have to say, a master like you is something. Chu Yang does not have a father or a mother. His business should definitely be decided by you. And yet…”
“This is a decision for an entire lifetime. If Chu Yang does not agree, I will not make the decision for him.” Meng Chao Ran grunted coldly, “On the off chance that I am wrong, there will be suffering for the rest of his life! I don’t want my disciples to suffer for the rest of their lives!”
“Okay.” Wu Yun Liang became silent briefly before saying, “Little martial brother, I have a favor to ask of you.”
“You are really wordy today.” Meng Chao Ran glared.
“On the off chance that something happens to Beyond the Heavens Sect…” Wu Yun Liang said solemnly, “Little martial brother, you do not need to worry about me. Just take Tan Tan and run. Understood?”
Meng Chao Ran smiled thoughtfully and said, “It seems Beyond the Heavens Sect is really in trouble this time, right?”
“Yes, the two major sects, Saintly Saber Pavilion and Black Blood League, as well as a number of mysterious martial experts are currently heading in the direction of our Beyond the Heavens Sect.” Wu Yun Liang said in a low voice, “This time, Beyond the Heavens Sect cannot avoid a bitter fight!”
“A bitter fight?” Meng Chao Ran stood up. His figure stood tall like a sword as he said pensively, “You mean?”
“This is totally unexpected, and it happened so suddenly.” Wu Yun Liang said slowly, “So I suspect… Diwu Qing Rou only wants to vent his anger this time. He still does not want to destroy Beyond the Heavens Sect. The main target of these two major sects is probably you and Tan Tan!”
“It is all because of Chu Yang’s actions in Iron Cloud that made Diwu Qing Rou suffer major losses. Therefore… dealing with you would be a blow to Chu Yang.” Wu Yun Liang said seriously, “That is why I want… you and Tan Tan to go into hiding first.”
“Go into hiding first?” Meng Chao Ran was startled. He smiled a bitter smile and said, “Eldest martial brother, I am afraid that even if I want to hide now, it’s already too late.”
“Exactly, it is definitely too late.” A cold voice suddenly rang out. The sound resonated like metals hitting each other.
Wu Yun Liang froze momentarily. Then it immediately relaxed and he smiled, “Which friends have come to visit?”
That voice replied, “Black Blood League greets sect master Wu!”
Right after a voice was heard from behind him, “Saintly Saber Pavilion’s disciples greet sect master Wu.”
With a swoosh, two figures appeared around them simultaneously. There were a total of eight people in a circle. The people on their right was a person in black carrying a sword. They were definitely people of Black Blood League. The two people on their left were wearing red outfits and carrying sabers on their waist. These people belonged to Saintly Saber Pavilion.
The four people facing them and standing behind them were wearing white outfits with sharp gazes.
One of them laughed and said, “We have just arrived, and we already got discovered by Brother Meng. This is really surprising.” He said in praise, “Meng Chao Ran, you are worthy of being the master of King of Hell Chu! Amazing!”
Meng Chao Ran said casually, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
Whether you know it or not, you are definitely dead today.” A white outfitted person from behind flashed fierce killing intent. With a clang, the sword had appeared in his hand, “Meng Chao Ran, your disciple has killed many of our people. Today is the day you will pay for it with your life!”
Meng Chao Ran frowned. Then he suddenly looked up with a gaze as sharp as a sword, “That’s it… You are people of Golden Horse Riders Department!”
