Chapter 12: Robbery, I’m Just an Innocent Person

Hua Sheng’s words directly boosted the morale of all the escorts present. All of them raised their heads and raised their chests, speaking with full fighting spirit.
“Who cares about the Heavenly Path? They dare to rob our Hua Clan’s escort agency? I’ll make them suffer the consequences. How can a dignified fifth-stage Martial Body Realm cultivator like me be afraid of them?”
“That’s right. No matter how powerful they are in the rumors, so what? Our Hua Clan’s escort agency has many people!”
“That’s right, that’s right. This time, we have 20 brothers escorting these five carriages. If we see them, we have to hide far away.”!!
“Moreover, our boss is personally escorting them. Our brothers are even more confident.”
Hua Sheng smiled faintly when he heard this and said, “Everyone, don’t let your guard down. The Heavenly Path will not hold back. We can’t underestimate them. Everyone, prepare yourselves and set off now.”
When everyone heard the order, they completed the final inspection and went to their respective positions.
However, this made Gong Ziliang feel that these five carriages of food trucks were definitely very important to the Hua Clan’s escort agency. Otherwise, why would the head of the Hua Clan’s escort agency, Hua Sheng, personally escort them? Why not let his younger brother, Hua Li, come?
Where was Hua Li?
Gong Ziliang suddenly recalled that he had not seen Hua Li since he entered the hall with Hua Sheng earlier. Could it be that there was something else?
“Little Brother Ziliang, come, this horse is for you. You know that I entrusted you to come this time because I want to use this Profound Heaven Sect disciple’s clothes on you to intimidate the Heavenly Path. Therefore, I’ll have to trouble you to lead the path ahead.”
At this moment, Hua Sheng’s voice sounded. Gong Ziliang returned to his senses and saw that Hua Sheng was leading a horse. It was tall and mighty, and it was indeed suitable for him.
Gong Ziliang took over the horse and smiled, “You’re too polite. This is not troublesome at all. Let’s go!”
This was a paid job. How could it be troublesome? Hehehe…
Then, Gong Ziliang sat on a horse and led the way with the two escorts in front of the main group. Hua Sheng rested in a carriage.
They set off from the southern city gate of Cloud Glow City and crossed the river stream, gradually walking higher.
At the same time, a group left the west city gate of Cloud Glow City. The direction they walked in could be said to be the same, but they took a long detour.
Fire Cat Mountain.
The mountain was as its name suggested.
It was occupied by a group of demonic cats. It was said that the Cat King was a hundred-year-old Cat King with flames on its body. No one knew its strength until now. It was said to be above the Qi Refinement Realm. Some people said that it had reached the Meridian Opening Realm!
Fortunately, the Fire Cat Mountain was actually a canyon. The mountain path that one usually walked on was at the peak, and under the canyon crack was the territory ruled by the Fire Cat King.
To fall from such a height, one would die without any strength, let alone encounter a demonic cat.
However, this path was an important route to the Green Cloud City from the Cloud Glow City. The Hua Clan’s escort agency had no choice but to take this path.
Of course, Hua Sheng had his own plans on this path…
However, as soon as he went up the mountain, he could sense that the air here was fresh and fragrant. Although the spiritual qi could not compare to the Profound Heaven Sect, it was still a good cultivation venue compared to the mortal world.
However, this was only above the canyon. It was hard to say what was at the bottom of the canyon.
In terms of spiritual qi, it was much better than the canyon, but the danger factor was also much higher.
For example, Hua Sheng went down a few years ago. He had originally thought that he could kill the Fire Cat King, but in the end, those demonic cats made him too exhausted.
At that time, Hua Sheng’s cultivation was only at the fourth-stage Martial Body Realm.
Of course, even now when he was at the first-stage Qi Refinement Realm, he did not dare to rashly attempt it.
Although a first-stage Qi Refinement Realm cultivator could easily deal with the demonic cat, he had never seen the Fire Cat King before. He did not know its true realm.
Therefore, he had never gone down the canyon again.
After all, he was not courting death.
Gong Ziliang listened to the two escorts who were leading the way.
As they went deeper, the surrounding environment gradually changed.
The trees gradually turned into hundred-year-old trees that were covered in green leaves that rustled with the breeze.
Five meters away was the edge of the canyon.
At this moment, Gong Ziliang and the others did not know that there were pairs of eyes staring at their every move in the grass and trees in front of their group.
These people all used black cloth to cover their faces. They held sabers, spears, staffs, axes, hooks, and tridents.
They were the Heavenly Path bandits that Hua Sheng had mentioned!
One of the masked men asked the person who was squatting by his side softly, “Xia, look, the people from the Hua Clan’s escort agency have arrived. It’s really as the information said!”
The man’s name was Xu Fei, one of the members of the Heavenly Path. The ‘Xia’ he mentioned was called Bai Chuxia, and he was the leader of all the Heavenly Path members around Cloud Glow City and Green Cloud City.
Recently, they had gathered reliable information that the Hua Clan’s escort agency said on the surface that they were escorting food to Green Cloud City, but in fact, they were kidnapping children to Green Cloud City before handing them over to the next family.
As for their Heavenly Path, it was not as the rumors said. They did not commit all kinds of crimes like killing, pillaging, or other evil deeds…
He who walked the Heavenly Path would uphold justice for the heavens. This was the origin of their name. They often eliminated evil for the people, killed bandits, and eliminated bullies. However, when this was spread to the mortal world, everyone treated them as bandits…
Even so, they did not give up on what they had always insisted on doing.
As soon as they received the news, they immediately organized themselves.
“I see them, but… there’s another person.” Bai Chuxia replied lightly, her charming and sexy big eyes staring at Gong Ziliang on the horse.
Xu Fei was a little puzzled. After carefully observing Gong Ziliang and the others, he discovered that Gong Ziliang’s clothes were a little special.
Thinking about it…
“Disciple of the Profound Heaven Sect!”
Xu Fei’s heart skipped a beat. He hurriedly continued, “No way? In everyone’s eyes, the Profound Heaven Sect is a righteous medium-grade sect. How can it collude with these bastards from the Hua Clan’s escort agency?”
Xu Fei could not understand.
“He’s alone and doesn’t represent the entire Profound Heaven Sect. Even if he’s a member of the Profound Heaven Sect, as long as he colluded with these beasts from the Hua Clan’s escort agency, we’ll kill him!” Bai Chuxia said firmly.
From the day she joined the Heavenly Path, she vowed to kill anyone who did such evil deeds!
Xu Fei nodded slightly and said, “It seems that the news is correct. The Hua Clan’s escort agency will be escorting five armed escorts to the Fire Cat Mountain. Another three armed escorts will circle around the mountain. Both of their destinations are Green Cloud City.”
“Xia, I think we can make a move now. If these five carriages don’t have children, it means that the three carriages that detoured are most likely hiding children.”
Hearing Xu Fei’s analysis, Bai Chuxia agreed very much. She said, “Right, if that’s really not the case, then we have to quickly retreat and hijack the other three carriages.”
As she said this, Bai Chuxia felt conflicted. She hoped that there were children in these carriages, but she also hoped that there were none…
Then, Bai Chuxia’s heart jumped. After raising her hand, she moved her palm and ordered, “Attack!”
With this order, the people from the Heavenly Path darted out from hiding. Some appeared in the grass, while others directly jumped over the trees.
Gong Ziliang’s brows twitched. He raised his head slightly and said in shock, “Holy shit!”
