Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 186
Chapter 186 - His Son Brought Hope To Him
[Maybe it can cure my hidden wound?]
Ye Xiao took out a new book.
It was a martial art book he wrote during these days after he got to know Ye Nan-Tian's condition.
It was a martial art which was perfectly suitable to Ye Nan-Tian!
’’The Unitary Nature?’’ When Ye Nan-Tian saw the title on the cover, his face turned red because of excitement!
Ye Nan-Tian had surely heard about it before!
When The Unitary Nature first appeared in the Qing-Yun Realm, thousands of men got killed for it! That was a big event!
There once appeared an ancient remains in the Qing-Yun Realm. Countless men of the martial world had been there to find out if there was any treasure. It turned out to be a cultivation cave of a marvelous ancient martial artist eight thousand years ago.
The Unitary Nature was the special martial art of that ancient martial artist. He had been ruling the whole Qing-Yun Realm with The Unitary Nature. He was invincible during his time!
Cultivators in the Qing-Yun Realm surely started to fight for it. Suddenly, endless battles began in the Qing-Yun Realm only for this powerful martial art.
Nobody knew whose hands it ended up though.
The only thing that was certain was that thousands of well-known cultivators died during those fights!
Endless unknown people had their lives taken for it!
Now, the legendary martial art actually showed up in front of Ye Nan-Tian's face!
It was such a wonderful thing that nearly made him feel a bit dizzy at the moment!
He didn't expect that this secret master could casually give him such a priceless great martial art!
Ye Nan-Tian was overjoyed, but he also had doubts. The title was The Unitary Nature indeed, yet the content might not be the real one. It could be some fake martial art.
Maybe it was a martial art that was purposely named after the same legendary martial art, so that its price could be raised a little bit!
Yet when Ye Nan-Tian flipped through a few pages of the book, he realized that it was actually the real one!
He was in the initial step of the first-class cultivators in the Qing-Yun Realm, but his eyes were in the keenest ones. He had only just flipped through a few pages, but he had already confirmed that this was an extremely outstanding martial art.
He was stricken by surprise. His hands started to shake. He murmured, ’’It actually is real!’’
His voice was shaking too.
His eyes actually turned wet.
He finally had hope now as he had this martial art!
The hidden wound, and all the other obstacles in his cultivations were just nothing in front of this martial art!
Now he finally had the confidence to reach the Grade of Daoyuan, and eventually... to see his wife again!
Before that, those were only a desire inside his heart, a target that he could never reach. Now this target seemed to be so close to him! It was not an unreachable thing anymore!
He just needed to work hard enough!
And he just needed the man to keep his promise to him!
The Unitary Nature Ye Xiao gave his father was indeed the real one. Back then when countless men were fighting for it, this book had been changing owners many times. At the end, it finally fell in the Xiao Monarch's hands. However, even though he had it, he couldn't use it!
When he got this martial art, he was doing quite good with the Pure Yang Martial Art already. If he wanted to cultivate The Unitary Nature, he had to abandon everything he had achieved on the Pure Yang Martial Art.
After studying it for a long time, he sighed. He had made massive efforts through life and death and finally got it, yet it ended up a useless thing to him!
So he put it away and didn't want to see it, so that he wouldn't feel annoyed.
In his present life, he already had a better martial art, so he surely wouldn't cultivate The Unitary Nature.
So he decided to give it to his father, Ye Nan-Tian!
Sometimes, it was like the gods had arranged one's fate.
Ye Nan-Tian took The Unitary Nature. His eyes turned red and he said, ’’Xiao Xiao... You are young. You don't know how much this book means to your father. With this martial art, the dream of your parents can finally come true! We must remember the favor from your master. He is our big benefactor!’’
Ye Xiao was agreeable on his face, yet he felt ridiculous about it. He actually became the big benefactor of his own family. However, he was extremely happy at this moment!
He was happy. He was pleased.
It was a feeling that he had never had before.
He said, ’’If it truly is that useful for you, then I must thank my master later on.’’
Ye Nan-Tian clapped on Ye Xiao's shoulder and nodded without saying anything.
He made up his mind in his heart that he should hurry up and finish studying the martial art as soon as possible. When he can memorize every single word in the book, he would destroy it!
An innocent man was always accused for having priceless treasures.
If people found out he had this martial art, he would encounter a great trouble.
He was a profound man. Surely, he could foresee such things.
The next moment, they both took a sigh of relief. They were both calming themselves down.
They didn't know each other's thoughts...
’’The day after tomorrow, I have to return to the north secretly.’’ Ye Nan-Tian said, ’’The kingdom is in the worst situation. I have to take responsibility.’’
’’I understand.’’ Ye Xiao nodded.
He actually felt sad when hearing Ye Nan-Tian talk about separation.
’’As long as I am there, the north will be fine. The disturbance you have aroused this time has actually made some good impact somehow. It has actually drawn out the snake out of its hole ... That was a lucky hit... So there is a chance that we can solve the problem in the north once and for all.’’
Ye Nan-Tian said and smiled happily, ’’Thanks to your fandango though. You are such a lucky person.’’
Ye Xiao laughed, ’’Well, I guess I should do more things like that in the future.’’
Ye Nan-Tian acted like he was angry and said, ’’How dare you!’’
Ye Xiao acted like he was begging for forgiveness. And then they both laughed out loud. They truly are close to each other now.
’’However... things are not good in the other three sides.’’ Ye Nan-Tian frowned and said, ’’I reckon the west and east must be in great danger, even though they were still safe at the moment. The south should actually be the best of the three, but there are fatal dangers hidden in the south. The House of Chaotic Storms was most likely aiming for the south. When they make a move, things will be totally different there.’’
’’The reason why I have such a conjecture is simple. There are only two persons in the Kingdom of Chen that are highly seen by the House of Chaotic Storm. One is me, and the other is Su Ding-Guo.
So Prince Hua-Yang, my Brother Su, is probably going to face some severe danger.
But I am too busy to take care of all sides.’’ Ye Nan-Tian frowned tightly, ’’The mastermind of the House of Chaotic Storms hasn't shown up yet... Except for the Xiu Of The Heavens... She has appeared in the Chen-Xing City before... I just cannot see through them.’’
Ye Xiao remembered the words Prince Hua-Yang told him before he left to the south. He felt a bit depressed in his heart.
Su Ye-Yue had been coming for Ye Xiao nearly every night. She had lost much weight during this time. She seemed full of thoughts all the time. Her bright smiles in the old days had disappeared.
She would lose her bearings staring at the south from time to time.
Ye Xiao knew that she was worrying about her father. He just didn't know what he could do to comfort her.
He thought for a while and talked to Ye Nan-Tian, ’’What if I go to the south for you, father?’’
Ye Nan-Tian was indifferent, ’’You have no soldiers or even one general. What can you do even if you are there?’’
Ye Xiao smiled bitterly and didn't know what to say.
And then he was suddenly enlightened.
[I have no soldiers or even one general?]
Ye Nan-Tian happened to remind Ye Xiao something rather important.
The next day, Ye Nan-Tian got in and out the House of Ye as usual with a dark face. He drove away all the people from some officials' families who were there to visit him.
’’Get the hell out of here, all of you! I am working on my son's wound. You assholes keep coming to flatter me. It is merely wasting my fxcking time! If anyone dares to talk about shit again, I will cut his head off at once!’’
General Ye was apparently in a bad mood.
The yes men all ran away with terrified expressions.
There was of course the Crown Prince among them!
General Ye didn't show any respect to him at all.
When the Crown Prince left the house, his face was all dark. He was disgraced and annoyed at the same time, yet he couldn't lose his temper a bit.
Nobody dared to come visit him again after he said such words.
When everyone thought that General Ye was curing his son in his house, Ye Nan-Tian got out of the city at midnight secretly. The three hundred blood guards took moves separately and left the city earlier than Ye Nan-Tian. They were waiting for him far away from the city.
In the dark night, a group of men were riding horses with as few baggages as they needed while heading to the north!
At the same time, a few carrier pigeons flew to the sky and spread the news, 'Ye Nan-Tian's son is in severe condition. Ye Nan-Tian has turned furious. After he killed a lot in the Chen-Xing City, he stayed at home alone trying to cure his son! After investigation, Ye Nan-Tian is in his house all the time. The House of Ye is fully guarded. The security became more rigorous than before.’’
Those pigeons were carrying the 'important' news to different directions...
Those who were preparing for the auction were now on their way. Some of them had already arrived in the Chen-Xing City.
 Draw the snake out of its hole (引蛇出洞), means allure the enemy out from their secret locations.
