    Default Book 1 - Chapter 7, Part 3

    HPC, Anh, SzFong, you are welcome. Jaya, what Whiteskwirl said. Strawberry, as much as I love reading your comments, you are under no obligation to do that. By 'holiday schedule', you mean Thanksgiving, I presume? Forgive me if it was not. For all I know, you might be in different country celebrating different holiday. I hope whatever it was, you had a good time? Anyway, here's the end of Chapter 7.


    Fu Junchuos heart went with them. She decided right then and there to try her best to see if there was any way she could reverse the hopeless situation [orig. reverse the rotation of the sky], to train them well. Her heart grew warm as she said, Its late, I want to go to bed a bit early tonight.

    Although Song Shidao a hundred times, a thousand times unwilling, he had no choice but to do as she wished, i.e. to end the dinner banquet.

    Kou Zhong actually wanted to ask what the relationship between the He Clans jade annulus and the Ci Hang Jing Zhai, but first, he was afraid Fu Junchuo would not be happy, second, he was dying to start learning the Great Method of Nine Mysteries. Thereupon he kept his mouth shut and, along with Xu Ziling, simply followed Fu Junchuo back to their room.

    Inside Fu Junchuos cabin, the three of them sat cross-legged facing each other in a triangle. Moonlight penetrated the room, shedding its ray on Fu Junchuos body, making her look more like Guanyin Dashi descending to the mortal world.

    With solemn expression Fu Junchuo spoke softly, Do you know why I left and then came back to rescue you from the hands of that county magistrate, and then at Danyang we separated, but again I could not help returning to you?

    Looking at her serious expression, Kou Zhong did not dare to crack a joke, he seriously replied, Is it because Niang cherishes us?

    Fu Junchuo sighed and said, You can say that. Among Yuwen Huajis personal attendants, there is one sent by our Gaoli King, thats why after I sent you to Beipo County, I made a secret contact with him, inquiring about the condition of Yuwen Huajis injury.

    Xu Ziling happily said, So Yuwen Huaji was also injured?

    Of course, Fu Junchuo proudly said, How could my Jiu Xuan Shengong [divine power of nine mysteries] stay idle and not inflict any damage? How could he not be injured? But he can be considered rare, he only needed to meditate for a couple of sichen [i.e. 4 hours] and already his strength was completely restored. Just from this fact I can deduce that he is still one layer above me. At the same time, I can also deduce that in order to get the Secret to Long Life, he wont spare any effort to hunt and capture you. Thats why I came back to rescue you, these two little demons. How can I let that tyrant of ten thousand evils live long?

    Kou Zhong forced himself to say, Niang can always take our Secret to Long Life away and then find any place to bury it; clean hands clean feet, its much better than being burdened by the two of us!

    Fu Junchuo cut him off, I simply dont like doing unethical things like that.

    Xu Zilings heart was touched. He asked, Then why did Niang want to leave us at Danyang?

    Fu Junchuo heaved a deep sigh. She said grimly, Didnt we get together in the end? I dont know why I treated you, these two irritating little demons, well. I was thinking of leaving you at Danyang, giving you enough traveling expense so that you could go your own way, and just forget about it. But after thinking deeper, Yuwen Huaji is able to utilize the power of the worlds government officials, in the end you wont escape his evil claw; hence I couldnt help but coming back to you. Do you think I fancy that Song Shidao? Not a chance! I had made up my mind long ago to die for my country; how could I be interested in man-woman relationship? I just want to borrow their ship to get you two far away from danger. Once the ship docks at the pier, we will leave the ship to go ashore, flee to the rebel territory, then that Yuwen Huaji will be helpless to catch you.

    Kou Zhong resolutely said, We might as well destroy the Secret to Long Life first, so that even if that Yuwen Huagu manages to catch up with us, he still wont get the treasured book.

    Fu Junchuo and Xu Ziling were greatly surprised; they had never expected that this kid, who was usually greedy for wealth and greedy for benefit, would be willing to make this kind of sacrifice.

    Fu Junchuo nodded. Hearing Xiao Zhong [little Zhong] said so, I am really happy, she said, But for the time being, we are not that desperate yet. Let me teach you the meditation skill first. But you must promise me on an oath that before the day you reached the first level of qi and mind connection, you are not allowed to mingle out in Jianghu. Just quietly find a small town, hide from the chaos of war, and peacefully and happily live the rest of your lives.

    Xu Zilings eyes turned red as he said, Niang! You are really good to us.

    Kou Zhong was also deeply moved, Even if our own Niang came back to life, they wouldnt be as good as you.

    The two boys immediately made an oath.

    Fu Junchuo taught them to put their palms together in front of their chest, and then she said, Prior to training your skill, you must train your character first. Remove all distracting thoughts, and then sit cross-legged with left leg facing out, right leg facing in, use yang [positive/male principle in Taoism] to embrace yin [negative/female principle]; left hand thumb pinches the middle finger, right hand thumb enters the left hand and make a circle. Right hand on the outside, using yin to surround yang. This is called Nine Mysteries Meridian Chain Secret. The four limbs also join together as a chain. Four gates tightly closed to guard the median.

    Xu Ziling was puzzled, Niang, didnt you say that Great Method of Nine Mysteries is heavy on spirit and light on form? Why do we have to pay particular attention to form like this?

    Fu Junchuo was speechless for half a day. Finally she sighed and said, If you really can succeed in mastering this divine skill, you must establish a sect, with your innovative idea you could be a peerless great master. I have never questioned the method like you do. But I can only teach you based on a proven method. If you can figure out other ways, you can always try it. But your heart and the method must be in agreement with each other; otherwise an unexpected disaster might occur.

    Kou Zhong sighed in admiration, Niang is indeed open-minded, the Shifus teaching their disciples in the martial art court have never taken this kind of approach.

    Thereupon Fu Junchuo explained in details the position and capacity of the Eight Extraordinary Channels[10] and all major acupuncture points, while repeatedly pointing to these acupoints on their bodies.

    By the time the two boys memorized everything, it was already the third watch of the night [between 11pm 1am].

    This moment the big ship suddenly slowed down. From the shore they could hear a faint howling.

    All three peoples countenance changed.

    [10] Eight Extraordinary Channels (Qi Jing Ba Mai) - These consist of the channels of Ren, Du, Chong, Dai, Yinwei, Yangwei, Yinjiao and Yangjiao. They differ from the Twelve Regular Channels in that they neither pertain to any organ, nor do they share an exterior-interior relationship between each other. Their main function is to regulate the circulation of energy (qi4) and blood in the Twelve Regular Channels. When the regular channels are satiated, excess qi and blood flow into the Eight Extraordinary Channels to be stored for later use. (Huang Yushi, wuxiapedia.com)

    Default Book 1 - Chapter 8, Part 1

    SzFong, you said that because you already knew the story, right? Jaya, Anh, Zlack, Scrapper, HPC, Janger, Ms Dongfang, you are welcome. Strawberry, I heard most vendors extend Black Friday and Cyber Monday for the whole month. I shopped quite a bit too, but for different reason: our house caught fire last summer, and we have to replace almost everything. Since this is the best time to shop ...

    Anyway, my apology, been rather busy the first couple of days after long weekend.



    Book 1 Chapter 8 In so much pain, wishing for death

    Yuwen Huajis forceful voice came from the right shore, I wonder which honorable person from the Song Clan presides over this fleet of ships, please pull toward the shore and halt the ships, let Yuwen Huaji get on board to send my regards.

    Inside the cabin, Fu Junchuo and the two boys looked at each other. They did not expect Yuwen Huaji would catch up with them this quickly.

    This moment the four large ships were heading toward the left shore instead; obviously they were afraid Yuwen Huaji would fly toward their ship, or perhaps he would use arrows to attack from the distance.

    From the bow Song Lus laughter soared to the sky, Yuwen Daren, I trust you have been well since we last met. Song Lu pays his respect.

    While spurring his horse to pursue the ship, Yuwen Huaji laughed and replied, Turns out its the Silver Beard with a Silver Dragon Cane, Song Xiong, now everything will be alright. Would Song Xiong please have your fleet pull toward the shore first, so that Xiongdi [brother, referring to self] can tell you the details?

    Song Lu laughed and said, Yuwen Xiong flattered Xiaodi [little brother, referring to self] too much. If Yuwen Daren were in Xiaodis shoes, suddenly saw martial art masters from the Capital flocked in in the middle of the night, telling us to stop along the river, while Xiaodis ships are loaded with valuable goods, for the sake of safety, how could I not inquire clearly first the purpose of Yuwen Darens visit?

    Yuwen Huaji was extremely shrewd, he did not get angry at all; he said cheerfully, Thats easy. This time this officer [referring to self] received the Sages [referring to the Emperor] order to capture three offenders to the throne. Reportedly the Fourth Gongzi has paid the bills of these offenders at a restaurant in Danyang, and later on he even invited them to come aboard his ship. I wonder if there is indeed such thing?

    Without even thinking Song Lu replied, Someone must be trying to frame us up. Would Yuwen Daren please return and report to the Holy Sage that if I, Song Lu, see these offenders, I will personally capture them to bring them to justice, I will send them under escort to the Capital. Its late! The Ol Song is going back to his cabin to sleep.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling did not expect Song Lu to hold yi qi [spirit of loyalty and self-sacrifice, code of brotherhood] like this. Without the slightest hesitation he simply refused to hand them over to him; they did not even hear him asking whether the offender was male or female, he simply asked Yuwen Huaji to return to the Capital. Hence they knew that he would not betray them. Such character indeed deserved to be called a hero and a warrior.

    Yuwen Huaji threw his head back and laughed aloud, Song Xiong is quick to act and quick to speak. In this case Xiaodi wont hide anything from you. Although for the time being Song Xiong can enjoy your peace, you will only invite endless trouble in the future. Furthermore, this officer can push the blame to your Song Clan. When the Sages dragon heart is angry, I am afraid Song Xiong and your family wont feel better either.

    Song Lu said, Yuwen Daren always loves to exaggerate, but you forget that mouth also grows on other peoples faces. Hearing Daren inflicts misfortune to my humble family, there will be another story in the Jianghu. It seems to me Yuwen Xiongs consideration is less than thorough.

    Yuwen Huaji seemed to be listening with great delight; he laughed until he was out of breath and said, In that case, this officer will not rush back to the Capital just yet. I will quietly wait Song Xiongs honorable self at the Weeping Ghost Gorge ahead, where the river is comparatively narrower, so that we can talk a bit more conveniently, no need for us, brothers, to shout until our voices hoarse.

    Again Kou Zhong and Xu Zilings countenance changed. Fu Junchuo suddenly stood up and said, I, Fu Junchuo, have received enough kindness from Han people, I will not implicate other people anymore. Come, lets go.

    The two boys havent even had the chance to hear Song Lus response when Fu Junchuo grabbed their belts and broke out through the window. Like a big bird they flitted across the surface of the river over four zhang or so distance toward the left riverbank.

    Song Lus surprised cry and Yuwen Huajis angry roar could be heard almost simultaneously before the three people entered the forest.

    The wind cut through Kou Zhong and Xu Zilings ear as Fu Junchuo took them soaring like a cloud or like riding on the mist, entering deep into the forest. In just a short moment they have covered over ten li. They felt that they were climbing higher and higher, the terrain was gradually getting steeper and more rugged. It was not until Fu Junchuo set them down that they realized that they were up on a high mountain. The mountain breeze blew, the two boys were so cold that their teeth chattered.

    Rounding around the mountaintop, Fu Junchuo brought the two boys to a shallow cave where on both sides the mountain rocks, the trees and the grass were tall, so that they could hide inside and were temporarily sheltered from the cold wind.

    Kou Zhong let out a relieved sigh and said, So dangerous! Fortunately we are on the other side of Yangtze River, Yuwen Huagu cannot chase after us.

    Fu Junchuo sighed and said, Maybe its impossible for other people, but Yuwen Huagu only needs a piece of dry stick, and he could easily cross the Great River. You, this kid, really dont understand anything.

    Shocked, Xu Ziling said, Why dont we quickly run away then?

    Fu Junchuo sat cross-legged. With a bitter smile she said, If I have trained to the ninth level, I would surely be able to continue carrying you away, but with my ability, I can only bring you here.

    Kou Zhong probed further, If Yuwen Huagu crossed the River and pursued to this place, where should we flee to?

    Fu Junchuo flatly replied, Someone with strong martial art skill like Yuwen Huaji has a lot stronger sense compared to ordinary person. We only need to leave some scent and traces along the way, and we could forget about evading his eyes and nose. Alright, stop talking, I want to meditate to build up my qi, hopefully by the time he arrive, my strength will be restored, and then I can fight him to the death.

    Finished speaking, she closed her eyes and went into meditation.

    The two boys dejectedly sat close to each other; they did not even dare to discuss their situation, for fear that they might agitate their Niang.

    As time passed, the two boys anxiety slipped away bit by bit.

    Suddenly Fu Junchuo stood up and whispered, Hes here! He is alone.

    The two boys followed her standing up. Kou Zhong said in trembling voice, Just give the book to him and be done with it.

    Fu Junchuo turned around and spoke sternly, Are you still considered human being? How can you say such thing?

    Xu Ziling said softly, He is only concerned over Niang.

    The bright moon high up in the sky shone its light down below. Fu Junchuo sighed. And then Pfft! she laughed and said, Xiao Zhong must not blame Niang, I am so used to scolding you!

    Kou Zhong and Xu Zilings whole body trembled. Under different circumstances, with Fu Junchuo willing to call herself their Niang, they would be utterly delighted; this time, however, they felt ill omened.

    Fu Junchuo said in a low voice, No matter what happens, you must not get out of here. Niang will definitely take you leave this place.

    Yuwen Huajis laughter was heard outside the cave, For those two boys sake Miss has revealed your hiding place. It was really unwise. These past few years, Miss has twice disguised yourself as a palace maid and penetrated the Palace to assassinate the Holy Sage, yet we could not even touch the tail of your gown. I had never expected that this time, for the sake of a ghost book, Miss felt compelled to show off your trace. If not for Miss granting these two kids a favor, even I, Yuwen Huaji, have to eat dust, I would never overcome Miss lightness skill.

    Kou Zhong and Xu Ziling looked at each other. Turned out their Niang has entered the Palace to assassinate Yang Guang; even more, for their sake she has made such a big sacrifice, otherwise, with her lightness skill, which even Yuwen Huaji was ashamed of being inferior, how could Yuwen Huaji catch up with her?

    Fu Junchuos hand was already on the hilt of her sword. Under the hazy moonlight, she appeared majestic and stately. Yuwen Huaji, she said coldly, You came here alone, arent you afraid that you may not be the sword in my hands match?

    Yuwen Huaji laughed and said, Although the sword in Miss hand is formidable, but how much weight it carries, I think you and I are already well aware of. If you want to slaughter me, Yuwen Huaji, youd better make your move right away. Otherwise, if my men catch up with us, Miss will lose this golden opportunity.

    Fu Junchuo said indifferently, Since you, Yuwen Huaji, are so eager to die, let me help you fulfill your wish!

    Her silhouette flashed, Fu Junchuo had already flown out; followed by the continuous sound of qi clashing against each other.

    Both sides carries the almost the same thought in their hearts; both were disregarding his and her life, and both were going all out. Under the moonlight shining on the mountain ridge, Yuwen Huaji was seen standing on top of a giant boulder, while Fu Junchuo looked like a ghostly smoke, attacking him from four sides, eight directions. The blade in her hand turned into myriad of sword tips, like tidal wave of mercury crashing against the opponent; it was a totally hard fight where both sides were staking everything they got.

    The expression on Yuwen Huajis long face was solemn and respectful, his hands turned into fist or claw or open palm, interspersed with kicks here and there, as if he turned into an exorcist dealing with Fu Junchuos wild, out-of-this-world attacks.

    The two boys vowed that they would never forget his appearance for as long as they live. Although they were separated by a good seven, eight zhang away from him, the wind generated by the fierce battle still assaulted them that they felt the burning pain was about to crack their skin open, and it was difficult for them to keep their eyes open.

    When they could not take it anymore, they shrunk back into the rock crevices. By the time when they looked out again, the situation has changed. Fu Junchuo flew over Yuwen Huaji, her sword moved even faster, more vicious, and extremely ruthless; she was going on an all-out offensive without any defensive move at all. But the fact was that Yuwen Huaji could only defend without being able to counter. Apparently he was falling into disadvantageous position.

    This time the two boys endurance was even worse; they could only blink several times, and were already forced to withdraw with eyes so painful that tears streaming down their face.

    Right this moment, they heard Yuwen Huajis angry shout and Fu Junchuos muffled grunt outside. Forgetting the pain in their eyes, the two boys could not resist stretching out their heads to look. In a daze, they seemed to see white shadow floating over. By the time they realized what had happened, their belts tightened, as Fu Junchuo carried them up. Once again they felt like soaring above the clouds or riding into the mist as they flew down the mountain.

    In their hearts the two of them were wild with joy, because once again Yuwen Huaji had been beaten back by their incomparably formidable Niang.
