“Beyond the Heavens Sect is in trouble?” Gu Du Xing was stunned.
Chu Yang whipped the pair of horses pulling the sled; the horses neighed and sped up quickly on the road.
“If something happens to Beyond the Heavens Sect, the target is definitely my master and my junior martial brother!” Chu Yang’s face was icy. He grunted and said with eyes ablaze, “At Beyond the Heavens Sect, besides those two people, no others can have an impact on me!”
“You are saying Diwu Qing Rou is taking revenge?” Gu Du Xing suddenly realized.
“Exactly!” Chu Yang was filled with anxiousness. There was a look of worry in his eyes. Meng Chao Ran and Tan Tan were two people that Chu Yang absolutely could not lose.
“Stay calm!” Gu Du Xing held Chu Yang’s shoulder, “Even if Diwu Qing Rou is currently taking revenge, what can the two of us do? If Diwu Qing Rou wants to deal with your master, how can the two of us deal with this?”
“Even if we cannot deal with it, we still have to go!” Chu Yang grunted. His gaze was slowly becoming calm and pensive once more.
“We must have a foolproof plan!” Gu Du Xing started to contemplate.
During this encounter, Chu Yang will have two weaknesses! One is his master, and the other is his junior martial brother! Beyond the Heavens Sect is in trouble. Even if Chu Yang is trying to be calm right now, he could not.
So at this moment, I must be calm! Plus, I have to help Chu Yang figure out a plan. If I become emotional and impulsive like Chu Yang, then we are truly done!
“Snow storm… mountain… Beyond the Heavens Sect…” Gu Du Xing sat on the sled as it glided forward as if it was flying. His eyebrows pinched together. How can we resolve this dangerous situation?
“There is also Purple Bamboo Garden!” Chu Yang quietly added. His fore was looking tyrannical showing signs of a brewing storm.
“No matter what, first, your face cannot be seen. Second, we cannot be reckless in front of the enemies!” Gu Du Xing said gravely, “Third, we must rescue people…”
While these were his words, looking at smoke filling the sky, Beyond the Heavens Sect’s outlook was surely grave.
“You are right.” Chu Yang pulled out his hand showing two sets of white clothes, “Put it on. In this kind of weather, it will be hard for them to discover us.” Then he pulled out a bottle. He reached out and released Gu Du Xing’s bun. Using his martial energy, he sent the powder from the bottle all over Gu Du Xing’s head.
Gu Du Xing’s whole head of black hair had unexpectedly become the same color as his clothes.
“Spread it all over your face.” As Chu Yang said this, he poured the powder all over his own head. Then he stood up and put on his own white clothes.
In the blink of an eye, the two became white from head to tail. In this snow storm, they were essentially invisible.
Then, Chu Yang brought out a small bag from out of nowhere. He started to pull out many shiny things and hid them on his body. They were all strange hidden weapons that looked like glistening demons’ eyes in an icy cold night.
“You… You brought so many weird weapons…” Gu Du Xing was dizzy from looking at them. These things were all hidden weapons that were capable of taking lives and extremely insidious. He could not believe that Chu Yang had prepared so many.
“You don’t know how to use these things; leave them to me.” Chu was busily putting the last few sophisticated-looking daggers around his waist. Nine Tribulations Sword edge suddenly clanked from inside Chu Yang’s dantian. And, with a raging killing intent, it went into the sword on Chu Yang’s hand.
The sword point was not to be outdone as it went right after and took its own place.
“Clang!” The sword suddenly let out a soft ring from inside the sheath. It was an air full of fury as if was saying to its owner: We are ready!
This little ring was enough to startle Gu Du Xing!
He could not help but stare at Chu Yang.
The hands did not move and the body did not move, but the sword rang out in its sheath! This was the aura of an Emperor level swordsman! Emperor level sword aura!
How could Chu Yang have such massive power?
Plus, a moment ago, Gu Du Xing could clearly sense a sword that could pierce the high heavens!
As a person who trained with swords, Gu Du Xing understood well that such a sword aura was invincible! It was the sharpest sword intent in the whole world!
As he was planning to speak up, Chu Yang slowly closed his eyes.
A sword aura stirred and did not cease to emanate from Chu Yang’s body. Then it was gradually absorbed by the sword still in its sheath. It unexpectedly formed a halo of arrogant and fierce sword intent in the air seeming to be able to cut the icy wind into pieces!
A bloody aura raged on, growing fiercer and fiercer…
Being affected by this fierce sword aura, Gu Du Xing suddenly felt the sword aura within his own body becoming excited. Black Dragon Sword rang out. Gu Du Xing suddenly felt as if he had just awoken. It felt as if a small clear stream was running right through his head. At the same time, he felt something like lightning striking right past his ear.
Gu Du Xing suddenly felt an explosion in his head. A dense sword aura surged out from his body.
From now on, Gu Du Xing had officially entered the ranks of swordsmen!
It was yet another convenient windfall. Gu Du Xing was truly speechless… Such a great fortune filled his body and soul with a fighting spirit.
The horses galloped as if they were flying. They seemed like a wisp of smoke on top of the snow and covered a great distance in just a blink of an eye!
Atop the sled, the two people were like two swords already out of their sheaths aiming directly at Beyond the Heavens Sect! All the bystanders who saw this felt a chill from their heads to their toes!
Only another hour and they would arrive at Beyond the Heavens Sect!
Master, you must hold on! You must hold on!
Chu Yang’s heart cried out! In this moment, he only regretted that he did not have a pair of wings!
On the road, vast expanses fell back behind them.
***** (Walk the Jiang Hu)
Meng Chao Ran was breathing heavily. It felt as if his throat was broken. While his gaze was still calm and indifferent like before, his face was as red as blood.
Using his familiarity of the terrain, he had led the enemies around this forest for no less than four hours! But the cliff, the place he wanted to get to most, was essentially unreachable.
There, they had a chance of survival, Heavenly Blizzard!
There reason it was called Heavenly Blizzard was because of its special condition. Under the cliff was a cave that went right through the mountain. In this snowy weather, no one could see it. Especially when the crevice of the mountain was covered with more than two hundred feet of snow. He only needed to reach it and drop his body down. His life would not be risked because of this thick snow.
As long as he was still breathing, he could find the entrance to that cave under the snow and hide. Then he could escape or hide there; both of these options were safe.
After all, this cave was created by Wu Yun Liang, Meng Chao Ran and Kong Jing Feng. Even in Beyond the Heavens Sect, not many people knew about it.
However, the enemies, now, seemed to be aware of his plan. They surrounded him. Some of them did not even hesitate to toss out their own swords to prevent him from jumping down the cliff!
They did not know what was there. But Meng Chao Ran wanted to go there so they absolutely could not allow him to do so.
Meng Chao Ran’s body was crisscrossed with dozens of wounds after many deadly battles!
Wu Yun Liang moved like the wind. He had joined up with Meng Chao Ran time and time again and then separated. But, no matter what, if Meng Chao Ran was in mortal danger, Wu Yun Liang would rush over without any hesitation.
But there was a limit to human strength. At this point, the two had almost run out of steam!
Tan Tan was lying unconscious in Meng Chao Ran’s arm; his whole body was without any injuries.
Meng Chao Ran continued to hold on to his disciple and not let him get injured.
Any ordinary person would get goosebumps if they looked at Tan Tan, but Meng Chao Ran loved him a lot!
Even if the rest of the world belittles you! Casts you aside! You are precious to me! With me here, you will not suffer!
Meng Chao Ran acted so, practically proving it, by using his very own life!
With a whoosh, a figure appeared behind Meng Chao Ran like a flash. Meng Chao Ran’s gaze remained calm, but his body suddenly moved. Fleeting Snow Cloud Movement. His figure became dreamy as it flashed a few times. Each time it flashed, it moved beyond people’s expectation. The sword in his hand was like a snake as it moved powerfully in the snow.
Clang… clang… clang…
The sound of contact rang out softly. Meng Chao Ran, with one hand holding the sword, had went through more than ten exchanges against his enemy as his body slowly moved back.
His opponent was a sixth grade Revered Martial Artist who did not have it easy either. After chasing for such a long time, he had lost a lot of energy and was also breathing heavily with a purple face.
In any case, he was not living for decades in this kind of Beyond the Heavens Sect weather like Meng Chao Ran had been. Compared to this place, Great Zhao’s weather was much more temperate. Especially in this kind of snowy weather. At first, one did not feel anything, but after energy had been consumed for a while, there would be a growing tightness in the chest!
A mocking voice, sounding excited and tired at the same time, rang out, “Meng Chao Ran, let’s see where you are going to run to now!”
Behind Meng Chao Ran’s back, two people in white suddenly appeared; one on the left and one on the right, the rushed toward him!
The three Revered Martial Artists, two sixth grade and one ninth grade, formed a triangle surrounding Meng Chao Ran. There was no way to escape!
Meng Chao Ran suddenly became alert!
He did not evade or run away anymore. His two legs were suddenly planted firm into the snow. He was like a motionless mountain.
His clothes were already tattered, and his body was covered with injuries. But, standing there, he unexpectedly looked awe-inspiring! This kind of air was as strong as a solid object. Surprisingly, it made the three Revered Martial Artists hesitant to advance any further. On the contrary, they seemed anxious as they cautiously took a step back.
In their hearts, these three knew well that, in such a situation, Meng Chao Ran was finally going to make his final desperate move!
Their opponent was calm. Whether a real or pretended calmness, they had seen enough. But with an opponent like Meng Chao Ran, this bone chilling calmness from beginning to end was the first. When they first saw him, his gaze was already like that. At this point of despair, it still did not change. It was still a kind of indifference that looked down on and did not care for anything.
It was a kind of calmness and indifference from the bones; it was a kind of arrogance and loneliness from the soul!
With such a person, the three people would bet that they had never met in their lives! At this moment, this person was taking a desperate stance, but he remained calm, indifferent and elegant. Such a thing made the three feel a chill all at once.
Meng Chao Ran calmly smiled and slowly looked up. He felt the cold snowflakes on his burning face. The relaxing feel of the cold seeped into his soul, and he let out a sigh… as if a burden was lifted off him.
Then he gently let go. Tan Tan’s body slowly fell to the ground.
He calmly looked down at his sword. His gaze was persistent and loving. His figure was tall and firm as he stood quietly in the snow storm. Lonely and arrogant.
While his body was filled with injuries, and his clothes were tattered, this kind of majestic appearance was from his core! It was a kind of nobility that would still exist even if he was shattered to pieces!
The three people surrounding him suddenly all had the same strange feeling.
A feeling of shame.
Even though the three of them could definitely kill him, they all still had an odd notion: We are not worthy of killing him!
The sword light flashed, and the blade shined brilliantly. It was like a living entity currently joining with his soul as they pushed each other on. It was like two teammates putting their lives on the line for each other and exchanging their souls as they prepared for a great battle.
Meng Chao Ran smiled as he gently flicked the sword with his finger. The sword trembled and rang out. The sound was like dragons and tigers roaring as it shocked the snow in the air and freely showed its fierce killing intent!
Meng Chao Ran suddenly straightened like a sword out of its sheath. Looking up, the loneliness and iciness had disappeared. There was only a sharp sword aura left. He became one with the sword in his hand.
His whole body was in shock as sword aura shot out in all directions. He never moved, but he was like a bomb exploding. Under the sword aura, the snow under him was pushed up and shot out in four directions!
Meng Chao Ran’s dark hair flew up fiercely in the falling snow. Raising his sword, he recited, “It’s difficult for the rain and wind to erase the marks in your heart; parting can never destroy love…”
While he was reciting coolly, Meng Chao Ran’s eyes glimmered with tears. All of a sudden, he stomped and spun up into the air for more than seventy feet. He was like a soaring eagle as he lamented softly, “…We not take what is eternal lightly…”
His body and the sword became a dragon flying in the air; they became light as a radiance burst from the sword, and he shot through the air!
“… Only in parting does everything become desolate…”
These four verses was Meng Chao Ran’s way of telling himself, his life, and his love a final painful farewell…
Even though he was unwilling!
But this sword move was one of no return!
His face remained cool and calm as before, but from the depth of his eyes, a wistful nostalgic feeling quietly appeared. It brought with it a kind of eternal loneliness and pain which mixed with the sword’s radiance as it fiercely plunged into the sky!
This was a life and death move! But it also brought with it a heart-breaking pain!
In desperation, Meng Chao Ran used this deadly sword move!
