Transcending The Nine Heavens Chapter 1458
Damn you, you may be as cunning as a fox, but even your attack has amounted to nothing this time, hasnt it?
Its just a mountain outside without anyone there at all.
Ambushing us? Well tire the hell out of you!
As expected, after wreaking havoc, the enemy retreated immediately!
Well aware since a long time ago that rushing out upon hearing the enemy attack was of no help to the situation, Xiao Chenlei remained unmoving as well. He merely waited quietly.
Little rascals, what Im more afraid of is that you wont show up instead.
If you want the dragon and phoenix bones, then the only thing you can do is to enter the mine. Once you do, the terrain is not going to be as spacious as the outside.
In here, theres absolutely no way you can come and go like the wind after striking just once!
In addition, due to the presence of the dragon and phoenix bones, this place is indestructible. Thus as long as all of you dare to step into the mine, even if you are the Nine Tribulations, you can only end up dead in here!
Fury burned fiercely in Xiao Chenleis eyes.
Blood debts must be repaid with blood! The blood of people from my Xiao Clan dont flow that easily without a price.
There was only one thing which Xiao Chenlei found strange right now According to the time, the Invisible Falcons he had dispatched some time back should already have arrived at the clan during this period of time. The clan should also have reacted and responded by now.
Why was it that there was no news coming back at all?
What was going on?
On the outside.
A smiling Mo Tianji watched the quiet mountaintop, the corners of his lips curling up in a rarely-seen relaxed manner.
"As expected, theyve retreated to the inside." Chu Yang smiled. "Tianji, right from the start, your intentions werent to wipe them out outside, right? Did you intend to drive them into the mine from the start?"
Smiling, Mo Tianji nodded. "Yes, there are too many of them. The moment it reaches a point of complete defeat, there will inevitably be people whom weve left out who will try desperately to escape. If that happens, theres no way we can go after and kill them all! Our secrets and identities will then end up being leaked."
"To us at the moment, this is something that we cannot afford."
"Thus, we drive them into a corner relentlessly, forcing them to come up with a foolproof solution before they break down completely. And this one and only solution is to hide in the mine!"
"Inside, its easy for them to defend but difficult for outsiders to breach. Neither is the place spacious, so it is not advantageous to us if we wish to attack. Should we storm in, it would be no different from walking right into a trap"
"Therefore, this is their best solution."
Mo Tianji smiled with complete reassurance. "As expected, this Elder Master of the Xiao Clan is rather smart after all."
Chu Yang let out a loud laugh. "But theres something you said that makes a lot of sense. Hiding in the mine is indeed the best way to counter us right now. Since we cant go in, what should we do?"
Mo Tianji replied calmly, "Since I can come up with a solution for them, of course I can resolve it too."
"How do we resolve it?" Chu Yang chuckled sneakily.
"With you, of course." Mo Tianji turned to look at him. "Youre the Lord Sword Master. Such a demanding task can only be entrusted to you."
Chu Yang rubbed his nose as he gave him a wry smile. "I knew it. Youre eyeing that spare bit of supplies I have."
Mo Tianji smiled. "The air in the mine will definitely be polluted and the ventilation inside poor Thus, after driving them inside such a place, there are typically three methods we can employ to send them to their deaths."
"If Ao Xieyuns Secret Book of Dragons has been practiced to a profound level, we can flood them with Heavenly Heavy Water This is the first method. If Rui Butongs cultivation has reached a certain level, we can also use the heavenly fire of nirvana to burn them to death Of course, neither of these two methods are viable at this point. Thus, we can only use the third method, which is poison!"
The corners of Mo Tianjis lips quirked up strangely. "I dont believe that with your connections to the Poison Doctor Wu Juecheng and with how your younger sister is his successor, she wouldnt give you, her elder brother, a bit of poison for self-defense?"
Blinking, he went on. "The average poison wont be able to kill a Supreme Martial Artist, of course. Neither can it get past a Supreme Martial Artist without being discovered. But according to what I know, the Poison Doctor Wu Juechengs Shadowless Poison is an exception."
Chu Yang gave him a wry smile. "She certainly gave me quite a bit, but I dont have much left anymore I surmise that after this time, itll be depleted."
Mo Tianji replied solemnly, "I only care about whats in front of me at the moment and not the future!"
After saying these words with a grim expression, he suddenly smiled at Chu Yang. "Because you are the one to lead our future. I only need to be in charge of planning what to do after youve guided the brothers to a certain place."
The two of them exchanged a smile.
At the side, Gu Duxing reminded them. "Dont forget that Ji Mo is still in the mine."
Frowning, Mo Tianji asked, "Before he went into the mine, he didnt leave you the incomplete version of the Nine Tribulations Pill, right?"
"No," replied Gu Duxing. Only then did realization dawn upon him and at the same time, he found it rather strange. Since Ji Mo didnt leave the Nine Tribulations Pill with him and the Xiao Clan members would conduct a body search on him for sure after he entered the mine, where would that fellow hide the incomplete version of the Nine Tribulations Pill?
Mo Tianji said, "Since thats the case, then he wont die! Thats also his trump card and the reason why Ji Mo dared to go in." A weird smile appeared on his face. "After going in, for realisms sake, his injuries must be very grave. Yet he cant heal his wounds immediately, so he can only wait for an opportune moment to find a way to consume the incomplete version of the Nine Tribulations Pill, thereby achieving an ambush effect. Thus, he must be bringing that Nine Tribulations Pill on him everywhere he goes."
Chu Yang found his expression rather strange, but after thinking about it, a hilarious smile involuntarily appeared on his face too.
Scratching his head, a puzzled Gu Duxing asked, "But how can he be so sure that the people inside wont conduct a body search on him?"
Mo Tianji replied rather meaningfully, "Of course they will conduct a body search on him."
"Then how is he going to hide the Nine Tribulations Pill?" Gu Duxing couldnt figure it out for the life of him.
Both Chu Yang and Mo Tianji burst out laughing with a loud pffft, unable to hold their laughter back.
Noticing their strange expressions, Gu Duxing suddenly recalled that when Ji Mo had handed his sword to him back then, he had also touched his own buttocks. After that, he even had a strange expression on his face
The moment that thought came to him, something suddenly clicked in Gu Duxings mind. He couldnt help turning pale. His right hand involuntarily rubbed his own buttocks as well, and his voice trembled as he said, "Could it be that"
Looking at that right hand of his on his buttocks, Chu Yang and Mo Tianji nodded while holding back their laughter, before giving him a you are so smart look.
"Ugh~~~" Gu Duxing retched, almost throwing up everything he ate the previous night. Looking toward the heavens listlessly, he muttered, "What a genius Hes too powerful"
Subsequently, Chu Yang, Dong Wushang, Gu Duxing and Rui Butong stormed into the mine together. After a fierce battle, the four of them fled from the mine in a sorry state while hurling curses and insults at the enemy.
Going in and out took merely half a breaths time.
But all four of them came out sporting injuries.
A series of cheers could be heard coming from the inside.
Luo Kedi swore. "Damn it, you bunch of cowards. Come out here and fight if youre a man!"
Inside, a voice snickered and replied, "Come in here if youre a man!"
Luo Kedi flew into a rage. "Come out here if youre a man! Or are you saying that youre not a man?"
The person inside replied, "Come in here if youre a man! Or are you saying that youre not a man?"
Second Master Luo flew into a towering rage at once. He went up to the entrance of the mine and stood akimbo. Right away, vulgarities and expletives poured into the mine without even a moments pause.
The Xiao Clan experts inside refused to be outdone. Coupled with their frustration, their curses and swearing didnt lose out to Luo Kedi at all. In addition, when all of them came together and made a united effort to throw insults, Luo Kedi clearly looked rather insubstantial and his power meager. However, the more he fought on, the more courageous he became. He stood on his own against the crowd, refusing to retreat even a single step. Saliva and spit flew everywhere. In an instant, dozens of generations of female ancestors of the Xiao Clan were implicated in the war of words.
Inside and outside the mine, insults filled the air. The viciousness and baseness of the insults could practically shock someone into anger.
During Luo Kedis valiant war of words with the enemy, Minister Chu snuck soundlessly into an area several hundred feet away from the mine. Activating the Nine Heavens Divine Technique and wrapping the Shadowless Poison and Invisible Poison inside, he crept deeper and deeper into the mine
For fear that the poison wouldnt be able to kill them all, Minister Chu specially released all the remaining stock that Chu Leer had given him. Even the most domineering Innate Poison also drifted down into the mine soundlessly.
One must admit that releasing poison upwards or sideways was a very simple task. After all, these types of poison were colorless and odorless, as well as extremely light. They could drift and float in the air easily without the help of external power.
However, in the case of going downwards, it was necessary to use internal energy to wrap around it and steer it all the way down in order for it to work.
How could the average internal energy get past a Supreme Martial Artist without being discovered? Much less when there was even a ninth-grade Supreme Martial Artist among them?
Thus, Chu Yang had no choice but to bite the bullet and directly utilize the Nine Heavens Divine Technique to achieve this. Only after borrowing more than half of the Sword Spirits power was he able to split a strand of Primordial Real Silk away from the rest. He transformed it into dozens of bubbles containing concentrated poison gas and sent them downwards silently
If Wu Juecheng or Chu Leer were here to witness this fellow actually using these rare types of poison like this, while Chu Leers reaction was hard to say, Wu Juecheng, on the other hand, would definitely become so fuming mad that he could pass out.
Which of these types of poison was that easy to refine? Which of them wasnt an extremely valuable treasure in this world?
Against the same number of opponents, this amount of poison in Chu Yangs possession was enough for Wu Juecheng to split into at least ten rounds of usage! Moreover, he would be able to achieve the same level of effectiveness every round
But in Chu Yangs hands, they were barely enough for one round of usage. In addition, the effect wasnt even as good as Wu Juechengs one out of ten rounds
This was practically an appalling waste of great treasures.
Rubbing his chin, Ao Xieyun muttered as he watched Chu Yang, "I recall that back when I was catching white-bellied rats during my childhood This was exactly what I did Ensuring that they are in the cave and then blocking all the entrances leading into the cave, leaving only one and then pouring water or releasing gas inside"
Mo Tianji replied impassively, "Exactly. In their eyes, this plan looks to be foolproof and contains a terrain advantage. However, there is one thing it lacks A path of retreat! Therefore, no matter when and no matter what kind of horrible environment one is in, one must always leave a path of retreat for himself!"
"Be it any kind of perfect and flawless environment or scheme, as long as it exists in this world, a method to crack it will definitely also exist! In this world, there is absolutely nothing that is perfect and flawless! Ab-so-lute-ly none!"
The last two words were heavily emphasized by Mo Tianji.
A sense of alarm and astonishment went through Gu Duxing, Ao Xieyun and the rest. Without saying anything, they quietly kept his words in mind.
Rui Butong asked, "What if one wishes to resolve our poison attack? Is there any way to?"
Mo Tianji smiled lightly. "The best solution is to charge out of the mine However, since they have already been driven inside by us and think that nothing can go wrong, then they would rather die than come out They are still waiting for us to go in and send ourselves up to their doorstep, why would they possibly come out?"
