Chapter 13: Why Did You Hit My Little Brother?!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
What appeared in Gong Ziliang’s eyes were more than twenty fully covered black-clothed people suddenly appearing. Some of them held weapons, and some rushed towards him bare-handed.
“What’s going on?”
Gong Ziliang was shocked. Could it be bandits?
“Everyone, pay attention! The Heavenly Path is here! Everyone… Ugh!”!!
A bodyguard beside Gong Ziliang shouted loudly. Before he could finish speaking, he was beaten off the horse by a Tiger Roar Fist Technique.
Gong Ziliang could see a faint tiger shadow bite the escort’s chest, causing the damage to explode.
Now that things had come to this, since he had accepted the mission entrusted to him by the other party, he would take their money and help them resolve the problem.
Gong Ziliang cursed and immediately jumped off the horse’s back. He used the Dragon Roar Fist Technique to fight with the people of the Heavenly Path.
At this moment, the calmest person was none other than Hua Sheng.
He gradually revealed a strange smile.
He felt that the people of the Heavenly Path were really not afraid of death and really came to rob them.
“Since you want to die so much, fine. I’ll be a good person until the end and send you to the afterlife!”
With Hua Sheng’s words and a loud bang, the roof of the carriage he rode directly exploded, and a wave of smoke spread out.
Immediately after, Hua Sheng darted out of the smoke and clenched his fists as he approached the people of the Heavenly Path.
At this moment, Gong Ziliang was targeted by Xu Fei and Bai Chuxia.
He saw Bai Chuxia approaching with a longsword that was as sharp as a mirror. Under the circumstances that Gong Ziliang was avoiding, she pierced through the air several times.
Gong Ziliang cried out in surprise, “No way! Who stabs like you? Why aren’t you stabbing other places, why are you targeting my younger brother?”
Bai Chuxia glanced at Gong Ziliang before launching an even faster attack.
Gong Ziliang was helpless. As long as he kept retreating, he would look behind him from time to time and discover in surprise that he was getting closer and closer to the edge of the canyon.
If he continued to dodge, he would fall. He had to think of a way.
Although his current cultivation level was at the sixth-stage Martial Body Realm, he did not know how deep the canyon was. According to the escort’s explanation along the way, this canyon was bottomless!
The corners of Gong Ziliang’s mouth curled up slightly as he said, “Hey, I’m not playing anymore. I’m going to attack. Don’t cry out in pain later!”
Indeed, just now, Gong Ziliang had only used 30-40% of his strength to use the Dragon Roar Fist Technique to fight the Heavenly Path cultivators. However, he had always been dodging this Bai Chuxia who was holding a longsword and had never counterattacked.
Bai Chuxia coldly uttered another word. She brandished the longsword in her hand, her movements gorgeous and clearly having a repelling effect.
At this moment, Gong Ziliang raised his brows slightly. He discovered a person.
That’s right, it was Hua Sheng.
It seemed that the person who was going to suffer was this person in front of him. To dare stab his younger brother with a sword, this was simply asking for trouble!
Just as Gong Ziliang thought that Hua Sheng was here to pincer attack the black-clothed person, Hua Sheng’s action shocked and puzzled him.
Hua Sheng turned his palm into a fist and suddenly brandished the Tiger Roar Fist Technique behind Bai Chuxia. A tiger shadow that was clearer than anyone present ran out.
It collided with Bai Chuxia’s back. The impact was extremely powerful, directly causing her to lose her balance and crash into Gong Ziliang again.
This force was very heavy. After the two of them collided, they did not stop. They kept retreating until they reached the edge of the canyon.
Gong Ziliang was shocked and looked back. Several small rocks fell to the bottom of the valley, but it seemed to be bottomless.
Gong Ziliang thought to himself: Damn! If I fall from such a height, I’ll become a pile of mush, right? No, I haven’t had sex before. I don’t have a girlfriend. I don’t even know what kissing feels like. Am I not the male lead here?
What’s going on? Boss Hua, can you control your strength when you hit me? You’ll hurt an innocent person like me!
Gong Ziliang recovered from his shock and said directly, “This punch must be considered work injury so I should be paid more!”
“Injury? Hmph!” Hua Sheng sneered twice. He raised his eyelids slightly and looked at Gong Ziliang while laughing sinisterly, “You’re the target to begin with!”
Gong Ziliang: “Ah?”
Bai Chuxia: “Ah?”
The two of them were stunned.
Gong Ziliang thought to himself: Didn’t I accept your mission? Logically speaking, we’re teammates.
Bai Chuxia thought to herself: What the heck? Isn’t this disciple of the Profound Heaven Sect on the same side as Hua Sheng? What’s going on? Did I misunderstand this disciple?
As soon as he finished speaking, Hua Sheng had already attacked. Another Tiger Roar Fist Technique of the first-stage Qi Refinement Realm attacked Gong Ziliang and Bai Chuxia.
The shadow of the tiger was extremely fast. The two of them were standing in an awkward position and could not dodge in time. When the two of them were hit by Hua Sheng’s Tiger Roar Fist, their bodies were already leaning towards the canyon behind them.
Just like that, Hua Sheng watched helplessly as Gong Ziliang and Bai Chuxia fell into the gorge before he said with satisfaction, “Kid, originally, you could have gotten 1 million copper coins for nothing as long as you obediently walked with us. However, you can’t do anything right but wanted to be a hero which affected our plan. Then, we can only say goodbye.”
That’s right, Hua Sheng was really like what Bai Chuxia and the others had heard. He really used this escort mission to transport kidnapped children.
Originally, their plan was to let his younger brother, Hua Li, escort five carriages of real food trailers to the Fire Cat Mountain. Hua Sheng, on the other hand, would lead the other escorts with higher cultivation levels to send three hidden carriages containing children to Green Cloud City.
If the people from the Heavenly Path succeeded in robbing the escort team on the Fire Cat Mountain and saw that the carriages were filled with food, Gong Ziliang would report this to the Profound Heaven Sect. The Heavenly Path would probably be pursued by the sect after that.
At the same time, no one would suspect the real thing in the three carriages that Hua Sheng had sent on a detour.
However, all of this was changed after Gong Ziliang chased the black-clothed person in Cloud Glow City, forcing Hua Sheng to change his plan.
He felt that he could eliminate Gong Ziliang as long as he claimed that he was killed by the people of the Heavenly Path.
In any case, now that Gong Ziliang and Bai Chuxia had fallen into the canyon, no one knew.
“I’m going to get rid of you ants.”
Hua Sheng smiled sinisterly. He slowly turned around and looked at the other members of the Heavenly Path. With a kick, he suddenly appeared in front of a Heavenly Path member in the blink of an eye.
The member was immediately sent flying several meters away. When he landed, his body kept twitching and foaming at the mouth. It could be seen how shocking the damage of the Tiger Roar Fist Technique from a first-stage Qi Refinement Realm cultivator was.
Seeing this, Xu Fei hurriedly shouted, “Everyone, retreat! This is the food carriage team. Retreat!”
When he rushed up just now, the first thing Xu Fei did was check the goods. When he realized that they were escorting food, he looked up and saw Hua Sheng sending Gong Ziliang and Bai Chuxia down the canyon.
Seeing that Hua Sheng was silencing the witnesses, in order to reduce the casualties of his brothers, he decisively ordered a retreat. It was fine as long as one of them survived. He just had to inform the other team of the three carriages led by Hua Li.
As for Bai Chuxia’s fall into the Fire Cat Mountain Valley, it should not be a problem for her, who was at the eighth-stage Martial Body Realm, to deal with the demonic cats as long as she did not encounter the Fire Cat King.
The most important thing now was to retreat with his brothers before sending people to reinforce Bai Chuxia in the canyon.
When everyone heard this, they all began to retreat.
But how could Hua Sheng let them go so easily? All of them had yet to enter the Qi Refinement Realm and were simply not his match.
As for Gong Ziliang…
“Damn, you son of a watermelon!”
