Chapter 785: Four Seasons Tower, Get Out!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Droves of people rushed out of their doorsteps in a flurry. Looking up into the sky to stare at the words, reverence was all there was on their faces. Although people were teeming on the streets, severely crowding the space, the entire Tiantang City was unusually quiet.
The citizens watched the sky in devotion, taking in the traces left behind by the person they respected the most. There was no other noise. In fact, glittering moisture glazed the eyes of many as they were inexplicably touched by the sight.
This is Supreme Cloud! This is Supreme Cloud!
The legend has shown his magic in front of us! This is god’s doing!
How can a mere man accomplish the effervescent words of clouds in the sky?
A lot of them recalled the year when Supreme Cloud recovered his identity as Yun Yang. His popinjay façade amused them, but they were also highly impressed.
Young Master Yun was an infamous scrooge back in the day, accumulating wealth wherever he went. However, it had been proven by Yutang officials now that the countless families of the sacrificed soldiers and handicapped veterans who had fought many years for Yutang would all receive monthly donations!
The source of the stipend came from Yun Yang, Supreme Cloud.
The Board of War’s Marshal, Tie Zheng, had also stepped out as a witness to mention that not only was the military stipend and the veterans funded by him, even his wedding was supported by Supreme Cloud’s silver taels!
The Nine Heavens Dictum sent a message discreetly as well – a complete name list, a big bundle of it. That was the name list of Supreme Cloud’s years of secret donations and an astronomical figure of silver taels.
By rough estimation, those in Yutang who had received Supreme Cloud’s assistance all these years, whether directly or indirectly, would include almost the entirety of Yutang’s population!
What a mind-boggling figure was it! What grand fortune it must be! Yet, Supreme Cloud had given all of it out without any reservations.
Hot tears brimmed in the eyes of countless people. Their hearts thumped hard as if they were about to explode.
“This is our Supreme Cloud!”
“This is our god of Yutang!”
Now that the god of Yutang had shown himself and left some writings in the sky, the people cheered instinctively, despite the majority not understanding what the words meant. Many veterans and their remaining families sobbed once they saw the words written in the sky by Supreme Cloud.
It was a deeply set gratitude – respect that would last for lifetimes to come!
“Since the existence of man, never has there been anyone who can be revered by the people to this extent!” His Majesty exclaimed. “I do not have any misgivings now nor am I jealous. I only feel lucky, fortunate that such a figure is in Yutang after all!”
Since Supreme Cloud’s script had appeared, it hung in the sky, growing increasingly eye-catching.
Everyone was easily aware that Lord Supreme Cloud was waiting for a reply, so they waited as well in silence. They watched on quietly.
Countless people covered their mouths with their hands, their tears coursing down freely from their eyes, but their eyes remained unblinking as they stared at the penmanship in the sky. This was the script of their savior, the traces of Lord Supreme Cloud!
How many times could they have seen it in this lifetime of theirs? This time, even though it was only a few words, they wanted to look carefully – they wanted to sear it onto their hearts! They would never forget it, not for at least an eternity!
Many scholars retrieved their brush and ink on the spot; wherever they were, they began to replicate the scene.
An hour later, a clear voice rang from somewhere unknown but it ricocheted around Tiantang City.
“Lord Supreme Cloud, be it grace or grudge, right or wrong, it’s fated that they can’t be peacefully resolved wherever one is. Since Lord Supreme Cloud harbors the intention to end this grace and grudge, why not end it here in Tiantang City?”
The people discussed this in whispers.
“Who is this person? What’s his identity? What is his background? Why does he have a past with Lord Supreme Cloud? Is he rightfully qualified to utter such words?”
“Shh, didn’t you see Mr. Nian writing in the sky? This person must be Mr. Nian. To be able to make Lord Supreme Cloud take the initiative and invite him, I believe he can’t be an ordinary person. He must have some sort of background…”
“F*ck, will I not know such an inference? I’m asking what grudge do they have with each other? This bastard dares to have a grudge against Lord Supreme Cloud? He dares challenge him face to face as well! How dare he – how dare he?”
“We’ll wait for what’s next… Look! The writings in the sky are changing into something new!”
Under the watchful gazes of everyone present, the words in the sky transformed again into the color of dark clouds. Like ink that was painted across a painting, the script splashed across the sky, exuding an oppressive atmosphere.
“Mr. Nian, the Four Seasons Tower is shamelessly despicable. You used dirty tricks and set up traps in Tianxuan Cliff, killing my eight brothers. I will not forgive this grudge, not even for a single day. Since the resentment must be cleared, of course, I would choose Tianxuan Cliff! The Four Seasons Tower is not yet qualified to settle this battle at Tiantang City against me!”
The fury that was contained in these words was vehement. The murderous intent poured out far and wide.
There were no fewer than ten million of Yutang’s people who saw the reply. Instantly, outrage broke out. Like a bomb that had been thrown into a crowd, the effect rippled into an earth-shattering trauma.
“It was the Four Seasons Tower that killed Nine Supremes? They – how dare – how can they do this?”
“What is this Four Seasons Tower? Somebody explain this to me!”
“The Four Seasons Tower be damned! It should be demolished right away!”
“Could this Nian be the leader of the Four Seasons Tower?”
“F*cking hell, he can’t be a good person – all the surnames out there and his is Nian. Serves him right to be beaten into a pan by Lord Supreme Cloud!”
There were people who cried aloud, “Nian! Why aren’t you dead yet? Get out of Tiantang City!”
“Four Seasons Tower, scram! Die, quickly!”
A person’s cheer was reciprocated by a hundred more while a hundred was reciprocated by ten thousand – immediately, tens of millions of people were shouting in unison, “Nian! Get out of Tiantang City! Four Seasons Tower! Get out of Tiantang City!”
“The debt of blood must be avenged with blood!”
“All of the Four Seasons Tower will die a terrible death – die without a whole corpse!”
“Damn the Four Seasons Tower, you should be tortured by millions of cuts and may your bones be shaved and your ashes be spilled!”
“Bastard Nian, how can you f*cking have the cheek to still stay alive? Die quickly!”
Yun Yang’s words had undoubtedly announced the killers of Nine Supremes to the world. He had also nipped all of Four Seasons Tower’s plans or conspiracies in Yutang in the bud.
From this moment onwards, the Four Seasons Tower would be hard-pressed to do anything in Yutang. Unless they were forever undercover, they would only be a universal target, like a rat running across a street.
As long as Yutang’s people remained, the opposition that stood would never be erased!
As powerful as Supreme Lord Spring Frost was back then, there was still a handful who knew about his Four Seasons Tower identity. Furthermore, what the Four Seasons Tower wanted had never been the imperial power but providence.
Still, something like providence could never be separated from the support of people.
How could they accumulate providence when the entire nation hated them?
