Swallowing the Heavens

Chapter 62 - Hot-blooded Ignition

Translated by pinkrainmi


“Shocking news!”

A small, thin martial artist suddenly dashed into the inn. He was extremely excited, panting as he slumped over with his hands on his knees.

“What happened!”

Everyone’s attention shifted over to him and even the inn manager put down the abacus he was holding.

That person finally caught his breath and said excitedly in a loud voice, “It’s already spreading like crazy! Rumor has it that early this morning, Wu Du’s Sun Shangxian strung up the Empress Dowager and Emperor on the city wall so that Hao Tian Shangxian who is still in the Chi Yang Mountains will go see him!”

“If Hao Tian Shangxian still hasn’t arrived by tomorrow early morning, Sun Shangxian already spread the word out that he’ll hang the Empress Dowager and Emperor alive in front of hundreds of thousands of people!”

The speaker was ready to sprawl out on the ground after he finished what he was saying.

“What!”

The entire inn boiled in excitement the next moment.

This area was considerably close to the capital city so they had received the news by the afternoon.

In reality, such shocking news was sweeping across the entire Eastern Wu and even the neighboring countries knew about it.

“Hao Tian Shangxian should know about this by now and is probably on his way back! Don’t even mention tomorrow morning, he’s probably almost back to the capital already!”

“My god! The way things are going, those two celestials are about to have a fatal life-or-death battle! What exactly is the feud between them?”

“I don’t know, but I heard Sun Shangxian is the new Protector Shangxian. Hao Tian Shangxian should have left the country but actually hasn’t yet. Could it be because of this?”

“Even if it’s like that, he still shouldn’t go around snatching our mortal Emperor and Empress Dowager, right…”

The entire inn was in a frenzy of discussion and even the inn lodgers came out to join in.

“If it weren’t for the fact that there isn’t anyone to succeed the Emperor after he passes, I would actually hope that he and Yuan Xi died. Ever since Yuan Hao ascended the throne, the lives for us common people have changed like day to night compared the past.”

“That’s right! Emperor Yuan Hao is irrational and ruthless with his tyranny, and he doesn’t have any capabilities either!”

“Don’t talk about that stuff anymore. A lot of people are heading to Wu Du to watch the excitement. Are you guys going?”

Amidst the hubbub, Wu You had been sleeping against the bedside up until she heard the news about Wu Du, waking up with a start. She immediately opened her room door. Sure enough, everyone downstairs was talking about the capital’s situation.

Yu’er...

Her emotions became more agitated when she heard that Wu Yu had strung those two up.

Hao Tian will be back any time now. A fight to the death is about to begin… Wu You’s heartbeat picked up its pace.

In light of such exciting news, she completely neglected the fact that she was a rare beauty that was hard to find even once in a hundred years. Thus, a good number of people took notice of her when she came out.

Wu You returned back to her room and closed the door. Even so, the shaking in her heart still continued, even intensifying.

……

Wu Du.

Half a day had passed from early morning to dusk.

Yuan Xi and Yuan Hao were squeezed together on the narrow foothold, mingling with the foul smell of urine. It was the pinnacle of pathetic.

After enduring a long period of torment, those two were already in a daze. They hugged each other, too ashamed to look at the hundreds of thousands of Wu Du’s citizens surrounding them. They were normally aloof and high above the masses, able to turn millions into corpses in a moment’s anger. Yet now, they were like birds in a cage for Wu Yu to play with.

“Imperial mother, if I get out of this situation, I’ll ask father to allow me to make a move too when he kills him. I want to personally dig out his eyeballs. And even more than that, I want to find Wu You and **** her in front of him!” Yuan Hao lowered his voice as he spoke. His eyes were secretly blood red.
(T/N: The astericks were in the raws.)

“Not just you, I also want to let Sun Wudao pay the heaviest price in the world! Doesn’t he like Wu You? I’ll definitely have Wu You tormented her whole life, not even allowed to die!”

Their heads leaned together as they said such insidious words.
“Don’t worry, your father will be here soon. That Sun Wuao didn’t kill us from the start and let us have a chance to live. When we live past this tribulation, Sun Wudao’s final days will be here!”

Even if he was a celestial, they still hated him!
Unparalleled hatred!

Such intense killing intent hid deep within the two’s hearts.

On the outside, they only displayed how pathetic and frightened they were.

In actuality, none of their conversation escaped Wu Yu’s ears. He simply sneered.

Besides them, there was still Prince Yao’s group. They had kneeled for half a day by now. Their faces were whitened and some of them even had their knees turned purple-red from the kneeling.

A wide expanse of battling area had been cleared to welcome Hao Tian Shangxian’s return. The surrounding onlookers had already been driven away by Wu Yu to a far distance.

No one was even willing to go home and drink a sip of water when their mouths were dry…

The entire Wu Du was deathly still by evening time.

Wu yu stood on top of the imperial city wall, facing the direction of the Chi Yang Mountains. Finally, just as the sun was setting, the resonant sound of hooves sounded from afar. Hao Tian had arrived!

Wengwengweng!

The Crane Horse’s snow white wings flapped rapidly, its speed raised to the maximum, revealing how anxious Hao Tian was.

The situation Wu You had been worried about didn’t happen. Jiang Junlin didn’t come back with Hao Tian. In fact, Yuan Chen didn’t either.

“Sun Wudao!”

A violent roar exploded from the horizon, rolling across Wu Du’s sky like dark clouds.

Wu Du’s citizens witnessed Hao Tian Shangxian’s wrath and couldn’t refrain from retreating.
Hong!

Hao Tian Shangxian was wearing an Eight Trigrams daoist robe and held the Fire Cloud Horsetail Duster in his hand. He dropped straight down, the earth splintering upon his descent!

Weng!

The two opponents stood opposite each other, the flames of war insanely blazing!

In Wu Yu’s eyes, Hao Tian Shangxian had already stepped into the flames of war.

After Hao Tian Shangxian glanced at Yuan Xi and Yuan Hao, his eyes were ready to spurt out fire. He had been waiting at the Chi Yang Mountains for four days and the Rebirth Fruit was practically about to ripen right in front of his eyes when he received this news!

Hao Tian thought Wu Yu would still be working towards the Condensed Qi stage at this point. He personally saw Wu Yu take You Lingji’s Sumeru pouch and figured there should be a considerable number of Qi Condensing pills inside.

He didn’t expect that...
“Sun Wudao, have you gone mad? You actually dare to use the mortal Emperor to threaten me!” He made as if to head over to Yuan Xi and Yuan Hao and rescue them first.

However, Wu Yu stood in the way of the approaching, angry Hao Tian Shangxian. He held the Demon Suppressing Staff out in front horizontally to block him. Wu Yu merely laughed slightly and said, “Hao Tian, I endured up until today and it seems like it’s time to tell you that...my name is not actually Sun Wudao.”

“What!”

Hao Tian Shangxian was stunned as he looked at the demon monkey mask on Wu Yu’s face. In fact, Wu Yu had used his real voice when he spoke just then. Hao Tian was probably feeling a sense of familiarity at that moment.

“Sun Wudao Shangxian...his name isn’t actually Sun Wudao?”

All the spectators — the nobles, ministers, imperial guards, Wu Du’s commoner citizens, along with Yuan Xi and Yuan Hao — stared over at them, their eyes filled with uncertainty and disbelief.

“Who exactly are you!”

Suddenly, a horrifying feeling creeped into Hao Tian’s heart but he couldn’t figure out the cause of it.

This day had finally come.

Wu Yu had put on the demon monkey mask back then so he could take it off at this very moment!

After this moment, he would no longer need to silently endure in Wu Du anymore.

Hence, when Wu Yu’s palm touched the demon monkey mask on his face, everyone, including Hao Tian Shangxian, had a stifling feeling.

“Hao Tian Shangxian, Concubine Xi, Yuan Hao, and all of my Wu Du friends, I trust everything’s been well?”

As Wu Yu was saying this, a slight movement of his hand removed his mask!

A golden radiance seemingly twinkled.

Many people had yet to see his face clearly within the light.

It was only after everyone’s sights had adjusted that they saw a torch-like gaze, a handsome, mighty, and arrogant to the bone youth! Just based on his facial features alone, he looked like an unwaveringly righteous young emperor that disdained the world!

“Ah!”

When Hao Tian Shangxian saw this face, he yelled miserably and withdrew three steps, barely managing to stand firm.

His complexion changed in a split second from an angry scarlet to a frightened ashen. Sun Wudao’s face shouldn’t look like this at all!

When Wu Yu turned his head to look at Yuan Xi and Yuan Hao, they were dumbfounded. They cried out in shock and started trembling, nearly tumbling down from their spot. Their legs went soft, feeling like jelly!

“Wu...Wu Yu…” Yuan Xi’s lips were shaking and her eyes bugged wide open.

“Ghost...a ghost…” Yuan Hao buried his head in Yuan Xi’s embrace, his body trembling like crazy. His legs were shaking incessantly and it seemed like it wouldn’t be long before he fell down.

Wu Yu’s real identity was now revealed!
“That’s Wu Yu!” Prince Yao and Commander Wu lay on the ground, utterly traumatized. Prince Yao promptly clutched at his chest among the crowd. He was already past his prime and his entire body started convulsing. He died of fright just like that!

Sun Wudao Shangxian was actually Wu Yu!

When Prince Yao thought of how strong Sun Wudao was and how he had forced Wu Yu to abdicate that night, he was immediately scared to death.

“That’s Crown Prince Yu!”

This suffocating disturbance swept past the hundreds of thousands of Wu Du citizens. Everyone fixed their eyes on the imposing, scornful man on the city wall. This moment felt like a lie.

The Wu Yu who was so familiar to everyone had always been an esteemed role model for everyone in Wu Du within the past 15 years.

That is, until the night before his ascension when he molested his imperial mother. Then, Hao Tian Shangxian abolished his right to the throne and banished him to the borders. And later on, he was eaten alive by a snake demon.

Although Wu Yu’s illustrious past made others reminisce, people trusted in celestials more. Hence, Wu Yu’s great reputation and fame was destroyed in a second. Adding on Yuan Xi and Yuan Hao’s bitter hatred for him, people were even less daring to mention this former Crown Prince.

But now, he who had died showed up again, and he was even a celestial…

All these shocked and incredulous looks were exactly what Wu Yu wanted to see!

But today was just the beginning.
