The reason was that Jing Meng Hun inserted a few words. Given Jing Meng Hun’s position in Diwu Qing Rou’s organization, he definitely had the right to chime into the conversation. Not only that, he even had the right to make his own decision!
Was being the top leader of Golden Horse Riders Department ordinary?
However, now that he jumped in, Chu Yang grabbed that and insulted him!
He did it with a domineering and arrogant attitude, and did not use any reason.
He mercilessly destroyed Diwu Qing Rou’s majesty!
Diwu Qing Rou came to investigate. So if Chu Yang was timid, Diwu Qing Rou would see right through his true identity. Therefore, Chu Yang could not be so.
On the contrary, he was a young master of Upper Three Heavens! What nobility? What transcendent status?
Diwu Qing Rou, you are a prime minister of a secular state. The fact that I welcome you is already giving you too much face! I don’t care if you are a number one leader or number one dog; in my eyes, you are nothing!
If I want to turn from you, then I will! Whatever I want, that’s how it will be!
I will use your subordinate’s flaw to destroy your position! I might be impolite; what can you do to me?
This time, Chu Yang intentionally caused trouble and made himself look extremely arrogant. But with his demeanor and his temperament, he revealed the perfect attitude of a young master of a super clan from Upper Three Heavens!
Jing Meng Hun was furious, and Diwu Qing Rou was annoyed. But minister Chu was also feeling a little anxious.
After all, he was facing Diwu Qing Rou!
Who could have guessed, what an anomaly like Diwu Qing Rou could see?
Entering the room, the two sides sat down in their respective positions.
But the harmony from earlier was completely shattered by King of Hell Chu!
“Please, this is Pure Purple Tea I picked from Heavenly Purple Mountain. Even in Upper Three Heavens, it is the only one!” Chu Yang hospitably brought out the tea, but there were only two spots on this tea table.
One was for the owner, and the other was for a guest.
It was very clear that this young master Chu did not prepare any place for subordinates so there was no mentioning of them enjoying his good tea…
While Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian were angry, they could only stand behind Diwu Qing Rou and wait on him.
“Good tea!” Diwu Qing Rou took one sip, closed his eyes and carefully tasted. After a while, he opened his eyes and said with a sigh, “It has been so many years since I was able to drink this tea. I truly miss it. This cup of tea made me think of my youth. Haha, I am thinking about old times again.”
“Oh? You drank this tea before?” Chu Yang frowned.
Diwu Qing Rou’s background was still unknown. Some people said he was an orphan; some people said he was a descendant of a great clan; some people said he appeared mysteriously… But no one was ever able to verify any of these claims!
Diwu Qing Rou’s background was much more mysterious compared to that of King of Hell Chu.
When he heard these words, Chu Yang immediately became guarded. Could it be that Diwu Qing Rou came from Upper Three Heavens?
“Haha.” Diwu Qing Rou laughed meaningfully and said, “Elder master Chu, senior Chu, is he well?”
Chu Yang said seriously, “Thanks to heaven’s blessings, elder master is as healthy as before! He is still breaking through in his cultivation.”
“It is true that good people are blessed.” Diwu Qing Rou took in the steamy aroma of the tea and showed a look of nostalgia. He said slowly, “That year, ancestor Chu, senior Chu Bi Xiao, traversed Upper Three Heavens with only a great sword. Many lives were ended by that sword. He fame soared and his majesty reigned. Younger generations still remember him and admire him to no end…”
“I think the Prime Minister remembers wrong. Our ancestor did not use a sword.” Chu Yang frowned; he was slightly unhappy, “Prime Minister, this cannot be said carelessly…”
“Haha.” Diwu Qing Rou’s gaze flashed and he said, “Perhaps I remember wrong?”
“Humph.” Chu Yang grunted coldly and said, “Prime Minister, I am feeling good today. If it was someone else from the Chu Yang, they probably would not like you joking around like that.”
If Chu Yang wanted to pretend to be the young master of the Chu clan, how could he not ask the person in blue about the Chu clan?
Not to mention anything else, that day alone, the person in blue had to be tortured with answering all of Chu Yang’s questions. So Diwu Qing Rou’s questioning would not have any results. Minister Chu even carefully asked about the outhouse and practically made the person in blue collapse!
But Diwu Qing Rou’s focus was, of course, not this point.
“Ah, so much time has passed, and I have forgotten things somewhat. There is just one thing that still remains in my mind.” Diwu Qing Rou sighed sadly and said, “Back then, I met Brother Fei Ling a few times. I know about Brother Fei Ling’s life-long regret. But I can only feel sad for him. I wonder if it is solved…”
“It’s a sea full of people; how could they search.” Chu Yang sighed sadly, “This emotional ailment of Uncle Fei Ling… I worry that it would be difficult to heal it…”
As he was talking, Chu Yang showed the attitude of not be able to hide his problem; it was a look that showed even the Chu clan of Upper Three Heavens had internal problems…
However, he internally shuddered: This person even knows that the Chu clan misplaced a child?
Diwu Qing Rou’s expression slightly softened.
“Young master Chu, in this trip to Lower Three Heavens, is there something important?” Diwu Qing Rou asked.
“Something important… Haha, the important thing has already been said by the Prime Minister. We came because of this.” Chu Yang complained, “In fact, we want to go out and play so we followed our fourth uncle…”
“Oh, fourth master Chu is currently in Continent Center?” Diwu Qing Rou was slightly surprised.
“Huh huh.” Chu Yang grunted without confirming or denying.
Diwu Qing Rou laughed and said, “So that’s it.”
“But when we got here, we discovered something interesting.” Chu Yang seemed very excited, “Prime Minister, you are not an outsider so I will be frank.”
“What is it?”
“I am very interested in this saber and sword!” Chu Yang’s gaze was as sharp as that of a hawk, “I must get them! Prime Minister is the leader here; I hope you will be able to assist us!”
Pausing a little, young master Chu seemed as if he made up his mind and said, “If the Prime Minister helps us obtain the saber and sword, I, Chu Fei, will help the Prime Minister with one thing. You should understand.”
Diwu Qing Rou’s head almost exploded.
I still have not verified your identity, and you are already making a request? And the saber and sword that I am currently dealing with at that?
“Young master Chu, I am much older than you. I have a different explanation for this matter.” Diwu Qing Rou said sincerely, “As far as I know, this is a conspiracy by King of Hell Chu.”
“I don’t care if it is pubic hair or wool. I want the saber and sword!” Chu Yang grunted, “Prime Minister, even if I, Chu Fei, am stupid, I can still tell if the saber and sword are real or fake.”
“I don’t mean anything by it. I just worry that young master Chu would be punished when you get back to your clan.” Diwu Qing Rou said calmly with a very sweet tone.
Chu Yang immediately recognized that he was somewhat hot-tempered and sat back in his seat. He smiled without and sincerity and said, “If the Prime Minister will not assist us, it is still not a problem. Us brothers will take our chances and play a little.”
Diwu Qing Rou’s expression faltered, and he said, “I will send people to investigate.”
“Oh, you don’t have to bother if it is too much trouble.” Chu Yang leaned his body back and said, “I have a few methods for getting them.”
Diwu Qing Rou had a kind of helpless feeling.
This young master Chu in front of him turned out to be unexpectedly thorough. Could it be that he is a real young master of the Chu clan? But how is it that a young master of the Chu clan shows up here?
In the exchange that just passed between them, this young master Chu spoke as if there was nothing out of the ordinary as Diwu Qing Rou tried to force something out by talking about the Chu clan’s martial arts, problems, and major characters. Plus, he even checked with the rules of Nine Heavens! But his opponent replied fluently. Plus, for each issue, he seemed to counterattack sharply.
There were even times when this young master Chu spoke freely while Diwu Qing Rou was struggling to keep it together.
“In any case, I came here today because I have something I would like to ask young master Chu about.” Diwu Qing Rou said, “Young master Chu is at a high position; you naturally can see further. Please give me your wisdom.” Diwu Qing Rou suddenly lowered himself.
“What is it?”
“At the present, three countries stand at the top, Iron Cloud, Great Zhao and Limitless Nation! In the periphery, small countries are everywhere. In young master Chu’s opinion, what should be done with such chaos? Among the nations, who are the heroes? Who will dominate?” Diwu Qing Rou sighed and said, “Because of this, my mind remains restless…”
“Oh… this…” Chu Yang acted as if he was put into a difficult situation. He looked at Diwu Qing Rou with a bit of surprise. This kind of attitude clearly hinted: I have never thought of the issue you are asking me about.
“Huh? What does young master Chu think?” Diwu Qing Rou asked humbly.
“This, ah, cough cough cough…” Young master Chu rolled his eyes and thought for a while. Then he laughed and leaned back saying, “No matter who wins and who loses, it has nothing to do with me. Don’t you agree?”
The meaning behind this was very clear: I can’t answer your question. And I never thought about it. So I simply answered with another question. After all, I am not involved with this. You can go ahead and ask whoever you want.
Diwu Qing Rou was surprised.
No matter how the question was answer, he would be able to sense the feelings within. This was, after all, King of Hell Chu’s life goal! If this was indeed King of Hell Chu, one statement against his own belief would be seen through by Diwu Qing Rou.
No one was capable of desecrating his own ideals!
For a person, his ideals are as important to him as his first love! A man who has been jilted by his love could curse all women in the world. But who would have the heart to think of the love of dreams as a whore?
Even if that was the truth, he could not bring himself to say it! Just thinking about it a little was enough to break one’s heart!
The person who had an injury to the heart was himself!
However, he never expected that his opponent came out unscathed.
“The Prime Minister is asking so many questions; let me ask you something.” Chu Yang asked, “From what you are saying, you are well-versed with Upper Three Heavens, and you know the Chu clan like the back of your hand. Could it be that you are from Upper Three Heavens?”
Diwu Qing Rou did not say anything, but he gazed deeply at Chu Yang in an odd manner.
Chu Yang felt unsettled, but he still remained vigilant and asked, “May I ask, what Upper Three Heavens clan does the Prime Minister come from?”
Diwu Qing Rou continued to look at him strangely for a long time before saying enigmatically, “After talking for so long, is young master Chu still unable to see my origin?” (Walk the Jiang Hu)

His CURRENT identity is a ‘prime minister of lower three heaven country’.
Of course he has to pay respect to ‘middle three heaven young masters’.

that’s make sense >.<
thank you for replying
Finally a discordant note, huh? I already suspected DQR was a plant from the Upper Three Heavens, but isn’t the UTH interfering in LTH politics supposed to be a huge crime? 🤔
DQR descended as a person, not a clan.
Consider it as going out to experience the world.
it is a huge crime, later chapters will reveal the consquences
Thank you for the chapter 🙂
Is he perhaps supposed to recognize?
Oh man that final line just brought about a new bunch of troubles. Thanks for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter XD
And Young Master Chu should mention that he’s just a child and can’t be perfect in everything…
He could also mention that he was sheltered…
He’d no longer be Diwu’s peer if he bowed out this way.
And that’s not something the proud character he’s playing would admit.
His character is a bit weird though, so being a bit out of it wouldn’t be strange…
>No one was capable of desecrating his own ideals!
Well, King of Hell Chu’s ideal is not a country but a loli…

Love these mind games!!
Thanks for the chapter! Interesting I find it odd that he’s messing around in the LTH if he’s from the UTH isn’t that supposed to be taboo I get that he’s just one person but he still has all the advantages of coming from the UTH which would be breaking the taboo in itself imo
Lets hope chu yang not digging his own grave by asking that. It would be trouble if that actualy give clue to the prime minister.
Thanks for the chapter! Oh snap the tables sure turned quickly.
Thanks for the chapter
thanks for the chapter!
