Transcending the Nine Heavens Chapter 418 – CN
“This is…” Wu Qian Qian was somewhat surprised.
“It’s really beautiful.” Wu Qian Qian didn’t know what this was, but she her body felt very comfortable when she held it in her hand. It was slightly cold, yet slightly warm. Its temperate was interchangeably fluctuating between cold and warm. It was translucent and sparkling. She liked it too much to part with it. She just continued to look at it, and felt as if she had received a priceless treasure.
Wu Qian Qian revealed a sweet smile. She didn’t care much about the rare technique that she had received from Chu Yang, but she very much adored the fact that Chu Yang had finally given her a treasure; and too with his own hands. This had made her extremely happy.
That was because neither Chu Yang, nor the Sword Spirit knew that Wu Qian Qian had grown-up in a place that was very rich in the Seven Yin Cold Energy. She wasn’t just exceptionally brilliant, but she also had an inborn ‘Mysterious Yin Female Body’!
However, Wu Qian Qian didn’t need these nine revolutions for the transformation. She could directly enter the Mysterious Yin Realm!
However, the base had already been built in Wu Qian Qian’s case. And, she was merely waiting to receive for the initiation to set out on the journey. Moreover, her starting point was the highest point for the vast majority of people!
Chu Yang naturally didn’t know any of this.
The lights suddenly extinguished on the side of Diwu Qing Rou’s army! This incited a state of tension and unrest on the Iron Cloud’s side.
However… that squad of Great Zhao’s soldiers arrived about a few hundred feet away from the Iron Cloud barracks. And then, they suddenly changed directions… just like the wind. Then, the squad took a roundabout way, and went back to the main army’s formation.
And, the Great Zhao army squads began to attack from all sides immediately afterwards; first from east, and then suddenly from the west. And, they attacked from every possible angle. Such a continuous harassment tactic had been turned into reality. And, its unpredictability was working greatly towards confusing people.
front was stretched over a long distance. So, the effect of Diwu Qing Rou’s harassment tactic was also greater.
Tie Long Cheng appeared calm in the commander’s tent. He continued to issue commands with ease.
Diwu Qing Rou’s harassment warfare was endless. And, the dawn was beginning to break. They had already attacked 40-50 times during the night. In fact, they had even attacked from 7 or 8 positions at the same time on occasions!
Everyone had grown accustomed to this pattern. So, they only relied on the archers to use their arrows to repel the attackers.
This came as a big surprise!
Moreover, the ordinary-looking armors of these invading soldiers turned out to be invulnerable some for reason. The arrows would merely impact upon their bodies with a sharp ‘pop’ sound, and would then bounce back in succession.
Iron Cloud’s soldiers were busy cheering — when they suddenly heard a loud roar. And then, the warhorses unexpectedly galloped out of the pitfalls like a bunch of lightning spears sticking out of the ground!
The cavalry soldiers – who had just dispersed – suddenly converged into one irresistible and mighty current, and courageously advanced towards the depths of Iron Cloud’s army formation. They continued to kill everything that came in their path!
Tie Long Cheng was standing at a high altitude. He was looking at the Iron Cloud’s troops from afar. However, they were moving about haphazardly. He sighed and spoke, “Golden Horse Riders Department genuinely lives up to its reputation!”
The senior generals who stood nearby nodded in unison. They were shocked to look at the state of these troops. They couldn’t help but think of their own troops, [would our troops have been able to withstand this drilling attack if they had been caught off-guard by such an elite squad?]
However, this didn’t continue for long… only for about half an hour!
About two-thousand of initial two-thousand-five-hundred people were still alive!
[Our Great Zhao is still invincible. The Iron Cloud won’t be able to withstand a single blow from us!] This incident had greatly boosted the morale of the Great Zhao’s army.
“Supreme Commander. Why don’t we prepare a squad of elites, and kill them off in one fell swoop?” a general on the side suggested in an angry and confused manner.
The generals seemed quite dissatisfied when they heard that it was Minister Chu’s decision. However, they suddenly went silent. They recalled the insufferably arrogant King of Hell Chu… a man who had openly embarrassed Diwu Qing Rou in front of millions of troops.
So, nobody dared to raise any objections…
He had come here after he had drafted the assault-strategy.
“What’s this?” Diwu Qing Rou tightly knitted his eyebrows as he thought aloud, “The movement of the stars was blurred and hidden before the war. But, why has the universe hung itself upside-down all of a sudden?”
Diwu Qing Rou was utterly confused. His train of thought was in a mess.
“The Wisdom star has gone bleak; it seemed as if it would fall down from the sky. The northern side of the sky is shining red, and looks brilliant to the utmost. But, the southern side is clearly lacking in brilliance… and is submitting to the north… And, what’s going on with this star?” Diwu Qing Rou focused his eyes to look at the night sky, and his brow wrinkled even more tightly.
However, there was yet another brilliant star right above this one. And, the radiance of his particular star couldn’t be suppressed by the incomparable glory of the Emperor star either. Moreover, there was mutual repulsion between these two stars. Yet, they got along very harmoniously…
“There has never appeared an auxiliary star. So, why did it suddenly appear this time? Don’t tell me… this auxiliary star is King of Hell Chu?” Diwu Qing Rou appeared distressed as he further pondered, “There’s only one possibility that may have led to this situation. And, that is… something has happened between Tie Bu Tian and King of Hell Chu! But… what could possibly happen that has led to such an astronomical transformation?”
Diwu Qing Rou continued to stare at the stars, and remained standing for a long time. His thoughts were in utter chaos, and he simply couldn’t understand the fundamental reason behind all this. This sudden change in the sky had completely subverted Diwu Qing Rou’s perception of the astronomical phenomena. And, thinking more and more about it had given him a headache… to the extent that he felt as if his head would explode.
An endless sense of loss and anger appeared on Diwu Qing Rou’s face.
Diwu Qing Rou muttered with grief and indignation. His mind was in turmoil. In this moment – at daybreak – he suddenly spouted a mouthful of blood.
