Chu Yang looked blankly. He immediately scratched his head and said with the naiveté of a youth, “I really don’t have any impression. Why? Should I know?” Implication: Are you some big shot?
Diwu Qing Rou smiled strangely and shook his head. He said, “You should not know. You should not know.”
Chu Yang was shocked. Could this person belong to an extremely famous sect in Upper Three Heavens? Could it be that they were at such level that the Chu clan would not know them?
But… what kind of rationale was this?
Diwu Qing Rou continued to maintain his mysterious demeanor as he stood up and said slowly, “Yes… Young master, I am very happy to have met you today. If you have no other commands, I will take my leave.”
At this moment, dozens of thoughts flashed through Chu Yang’s mind.
Could it be a flaw that I don’t know his identity? Can’t be.
If not, could it be that Diwu Qing Rou wants to use this retreat to advance in the situation?
He thought quickly, but his countenance did not change. He smiled and stood up, “Please leave leisurely. I will not send you back.”
He acted as if he did not care whether the other person was leaving or not.
Diwu Qing Rou laughed and said, “I will not bother you with these complicated matters anymore.” He looked as Chu Yang as if to say: When you leave, I will send you. I wish you a good trip…
Chu Yang replied warmly, “Please leave well.”
Diwu Qing Rou, Jing Meng Hun, and Yin Wu Fa smiled as they left the room and walked down the stairs.
Chu Yang warmly saw them off at the top of the stairs. There, he watched Diwu Qing Rou leave.
In this second match, King of Hell Chu fell behind!
It was because he did not know for sure what Diwu Qing Rou meant with those last words. Did he see through Chu Yang’s flaw or not?
No matter how broad Chu Yang’s mind was, a shadow of doubt would haunt him from now on.
Diwu Qing Rou walked down one flight of the stairs, and Chu Yang was about to return to his room. At that very moment, Diwu Qing Rou suddenly turned and watched as Chu Yang turned. He called out in a deep voice, “Chu Yang!”
Chu Yang acted as if he did not hear anything and took a step before turning back. He looked in Diwu Qing Rou’s direction and hesitantly asked, “Prime Minister?”
Diwu Qing Rou’s hawk-like gaze went up the steps and straight at Chu Yang’s face. Chu Yang unexpectedly felt a burning sensation on his face as if there was an invisible fire!
“Oh, nothing. I saw wrong.” The four eyes looked at each other. One pair carried an innocent surprise with a trace of indifference while Diwu Qing Rou’s were searching for something. A long while after, Diwu Qing Rou laughed and walked down.
With an “oh,” Chu Yang did not bother and went back to his room.
Back in the room, he sat down. After a long time, cold sweat suddenly poured out from all over his body. Within moments, his white outfit was soaked.
Since the moment Diwu Qing Rou arrived until the time he left, Chu Yang still was not able to ascertain whether he won or lost! In the end, was he successful with his cover or did Diwu Qing Rou see through his true identity? Chu Yang could not believe that he could not be certain of this.
Since his rebirth, this was something that had never happened before!
Furthermore, Diwu Qing Rou still had the upper hand! While Chu Yang had some success, in the grand scheme of things, victory was Diwu Qing Rou’s hand.
Chu Yang essentially did not see through Diwu Qing Rou’s mind.
Diwu Qing Rou’s yell right before he departed had an unexpected effect of upsetting Chu Yang’s spirit and scared him momentarily. If it were not for the fact that his spirit had been through two lifetimes and was much more fortified than that of ordinary people, he would have involuntarily replied at the critical moment…
“That was truly dangerous!” Gu Du Xing said to Chu Yang.
Chu Yang slightly nodded. The two looked at each other and could see the terror in each other’s eyes. Diwu Qing Rou’s aura definitely could not be dealt with by ordinary people.
Diwu Qing Rou finally frowned when he got to the bottom of the stairs.
Given his intelligence, he still could not verify whether this young master Chu Fei was King of Hell Chu or not. The moment they met, his opponent managed to destroy his majesty. The kind of arrogance that belonged to descendants of great clans was thoroughly demonstrated by his opponent.
After that, his offensive mode was lost. Some things looked as if he had the upper hand, but, in reality, Diwu Qing Rou could not see through anything.
And that yell had made it clear to Diwu Qing Rou that he had lost.
If he was able to verify the truth, that yell would have been unnecessary! If it was Chu Fei, he did not need to call him. If it was Chu Yang, he especially did not need to call him! But he did call.
This was his last resort.
Diwu Qing Rou sighed. This youth, whether he was Chu Fei or Chu Yang, was someone to fearful of! This was unquestioned.
He was about to go to the rooms of the Middle Three Heavens young masters when he suddenly sensed something. He turned to see a person in blue softly walking in. He stepped on the stairs, but it seemed as soft as clouds flying in the wind.
Diwu Qing Rou turned, and the other immediately sensed this and turned as well.
Four eyes looked at each other, and the atmosphere thickened. A power pressure flooded out from that person in blue.
Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian were terrified, and hastily activated their energy to defend against it. However, they discovered that they unexpectedly could not activate their energy. It was as if their lives were now being controlled by someone else. They were completely without control. Their souls practically left their bodies.
Right after, Diwu Qing Rou removed his gaze, and turned to walk away. On the steps, that person in blue also quietly disappeared.
It was as if it was merely a passing glance, and nothing happened.
“Martial expert!” Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian glanced at each other. Both could feel cold sweats running down their backs. They were both of the same thought that perhaps this person was the bodyguard of those two young men. A person of the Chu clan.
It was not until noon when Diwu Qign Rou left Heaven Reaching Tower.
After leaving Chu Yang’s room, he went to look for three people: Ao Xie Yun, Mo Tian Yun, and Dong Wu Lei.
The reactions of the three made Diwu Qing Rou very pensive.
On the way back, he did not even speak. He just frowned and contemplated.
Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian were both a little surprised. While the attitude of these eldest young masters of Middle Three Heavens were somewhat unclear, their purpose for today was to verify whether young master Chu was King of Hell Chu or not.
In the eyes of these two people, this young master Chu Fei was definitely not King of Hell Chu! This was already a certainty!
No matter from what aspect, his portrayal was flawless!
If this was not a descendant of the Chu clan, how could he know so much inside information of the Chu clan? Even Jing Meng Hun, who was scolded by Chu Yang, was not at all suspicious of his identity.
“Prime Minister, what do you think?” Jing Meng Hun carefully asked. They were now on the road and were not too far from the minister’s manor. There were very few people walking on the road.
“What do you think?” Diwu Qing Rou looked at him.
“This Chu Fei should not be King of Hell Chu!” Jing Meng Hun said decidedly. Yin Wu Tian quietly nodded in agreement with this idea.
“This is not certain.” Diwu Qing Rou slowly shook his head, “We cannot be certain right now. But… I still think that he is King of Hell Chu in disguise!”
Jing Meng Hun and Yin Wu Tian was a little startled. Things were already so certain, why was Diwu Qing Rou still thinking about it? If King of Hell Chu was indeed a young master from a super clan of Upper Three Heavens, then what could they do?
If they continue to fight and annoy the Chu clan, then what would happen?
“Just quietly watch as things progress! Even after King of Hell Chu makes his move, I can still break it.” Diwu Qing Rou was, of course, also feeling worried.
Before he left, he was eighty percent sure that he would be able to determine whether this Chu Fei was King of Hell Chu.
But from the time they saw each other to the time he left, this certainty dropped by sixty percent. He did not dare to make judgement. Then he saw the person in blue, Diwu Qing Rou’s certainty dropped by half.
And the half that he had, Diwu Qing Rou was also not certain of. Must a person from Upper Three Heavens know Diwu Qing Rou’s identity? In other words, even Diwu Qing Rou felt uncertain.
However, not knowing his identity was still cause for a little suspicion.
As for the rest, they were essentially Diwu Qing Rou’s sixth sense. While young master Chu Fei did not show any antagonistic intentions toward him, Diwu Qing Rou’s intuition almost stubbornly insisted that this was indeed King of Hell Chu!
This kind of feeling was slightly irrational!
But he acknowledged it!
“Starting tonight, begin influencing the people we captured!” Diwu Qing Rou said slowly, “King level leader Yin will be in charge of this!”
“King level leader Jing, you must carefully monitor all movements tonight!” There was a look of deep exhaustion in Diwu Qing Rou’s eyes, “Tonight… if those saber and sword don’t appear, then there is nothing. But once they appear, there would probably be a terrifying storm of blood!”
Jing Meng Hun solemnly complied.
Time quickly passed, and night came in a blink of an eye.
With the coming of the night, the group of Middle Three Heavens young masters opened their eyes wide and watched all directions carefully.
On top of Heaven Reaching Tower, a few people with fluttering sleeves stood motionless as they watched the light of the oil lamps in the darkness.
Inside Continent Center Citadel, there were people standing in wait on top of every tall structure. Moreover, these spots were all taken by King level masters!
But tonight was quiet. Even the fighting between Jiang Hu people greatly lessened.
Ask the Heavens Sword did not appear; Underworld Saber did not appear. Of course, Sunlight Saber and Moonlight Sword were even more elusive.
Another day passed.
Late this afternoon, someone suddenly discovered Ask the Heavens Sword, but it only caused chaos for a short five minutes. The person with Ask the Heavens Sword successfully broke free and disappeared. All of the King level masters’ efforts were in vain!
The next night, some discovered and chased after Ask the Heavens Sword. After a fight, he escaped once again.
In a few days, such situation happened more than twenty times. It was said that that the people holding Ask the Heavens Sword and Underworld Saber were filled with injuries and exhausted…
More than a dozen King level masters acted like wild dogs as they ran to and fro. Everyone was filled with anger and on the verge of exploding…
Finally, on the fifth day, also a full-moon night, a period of pandemonium began!
When the moon was high in the sky, in Continent Center Citadel, two beams of light, seemingly very far from each other, shot straight up. Sun and moon shined together once more!
The entirety of Continent Center Citadel was like a massive vault of explosives that detonated! (Walk the Jiang Hu)
