What shall I take with me, into the worn-out sky?



TOU


meaning: rise, leap

暴騰 == boutou == (noun)  sudden rise, sharp rise, boom, skyrocketing
騰貴 == touki == (noun) rise




Bottom right radical is 'horse' (馬). The rest of the character is the 'royal we', which here acts phonetically to express 'leap'. This character originally referred to the leaping of a horse. Henshall suggests taking the left radical as 'moon(light)' (月), and the top right radical as 'two' (二) and 'fire' (火), and as a mnemonic: 'Horse leaps two fires as moon rises.'
