Cheeky Sword God - Chapter 15
Wu Chi never thought of himself as a gentleman nor did he believe in other people being one. Only the dead could keep a secret!
These people were already doomed from the start.
“What are you stunned for? Let’s go!”
Stretching out his hand to grab the stunned Zhou Boyan, Wu Chi tiredly spoke.
The question brought her out of her thoughts, and Zhou Boyan finally responded, “Were all these all planned by you?”
“Little Girl, listen to me, we don’t have any time to waste. Luo Kun should have reached the Sword Pavilion by now. Once they find out that you haven’t returned yet, they will immediately send someone after us!”
Wu Chi frowned, but still continued, “Killing these men will only buy us a little time. If we’re still this slow, we will all die.”
“Uncle Shui knew about this too?” At this moment, Zhou Boyan finally realized that Uncle Shui was in this plan too, and didn’t send Wu Chi back.
“Don’t you understand yet? The Shadow Sword Villa is over, and you don’t even have the strength to protect the sword! The best choice for you now is to survive, and then find a chance to get revenge! Fearing that Zhou Boyan might take the bull by the horns*, Wu Chi specifically mentioned the matter regarding revenge.
[*To take the bull by the horns is to confront a situation decisively.]
“No, I can’t leave!” Zhou Boyan stubbornly refused. She didn’t care about the chance of revenge in the future.
“Uncle Shui and others are like my family. I can’t be selfish. Even if I were to die, I will die with the Shadow Sword Villa.”
“Even after knowing that resistance is futile, why must we stay and die?” Wu Chi was going crazy. This was a meaningless sacrifice!
“Wu Chi, thank you for doing all this for me, but I really can’t go with you.” Her eyes were still soaked with tears, Zhou Boyan shook her head stubbornly.
Wu Chi was really going crazy. This woman was just like a rock.
How can I persuade her?
At this moment, Wu Chi finally had some understanding of his brother’s desire to force him back.
Almost at the same time, Wu Chi had already planned to forcibly kidnap Zhou Boyan.
But before Wu Chi could make his move, he suddenly felt his body turn cold and could not move a finger.
“What are you going to do, silly woman?”
“Sorry!” Gently embracing Wu Chi, Zhou Boyan whispered, “I sealed your meridians with my qi, you will recover in half an hour at most.”
“Little Girl, let me go! I won’t stop you anymore…”
“Bah! I don’t believe it… there’s not a word of truth from your mouth.” Steeling up her heart, Zhou Boyan became much more relaxed.
“Wu Chi, forget everything about me, ok?” Looking at Wu Chi’s face, Zhou Boyan murmured softly.
“Little Girl, listen to me! Don’t be silly, there might be some other ways! You have to let me go first! ” Although knowing that such a statement would have no result, Wu Chi said, holding out the hope that Zhou Boyan would change her mind.
“I am the owner of Shadow Sword Villa, and this place is my father’s lifelong effort. I can’t abandon my relatives who watched me grow up.”
“Wu Chi… I like you! You must live well!” Zhou Boyan failed to control her tears, and while holding Wu Chi, she muttered, “Actually… I don’t want you to forget me… I can’t bear the thought of you forgetting me! Don’t stop thinking about me… even for the shortest moment, I am satisfied…”
At this moment, Wu Chi felt the pain of heartbreak.
This pain suffocated him so much!
“Bah, I won’t miss you! Little Girl, if you die, I will immediately forget you. There are more beautiful girls around the world than you! I can change girls every day!”
“Little Girl… come back!”
“Come back… come back to me!”
After pushing Wu Chi aside, Zhou Boyan suddenly turned around and ran into the direction that Wu Chi had just come from.
No matter how much Wu Chi had shouted, she never turned back. She dared not look back. She was afraid that if she looked back once more, she would lose the courage to leave.
Father, you never told me how painful it would be to fall in love with someone…
Deng Mao kicked his feet on Shui Shu’s chest and stomped on it hard, forcing Uncle Shu to spit out blood. His eyes were full of malice.
“How can I open the seal inside the Sword Pavilion? If you speak it well, I can spare your life, otherwise, I will let you suffer till the point where you wish you were dead!”
Coughing out a mouthful of blood, Uncle Shui’s eyes were full of sarcasm. “Do you think a little scratch could hurt me? Stop tickling me!”
“Bastard! Let’s see if you can still keep your mouth shut!”
With another step, the sound of broken bones resounded, and at least three or four ribs were broken by this stomp.
“He still refused to speak? Keep torturing him until he speaks out!”
Luo Kun’s eyes were still full of killing intent, he ordered others, “What about Miss Zhou? Go find her for me!”
“Stop dreaming, Miss has already left, you will never find our Miss!” Looking at Luo Kun, Uncle Shui retorted back, “What a shameless man! One day Miss will take revenge for us, and for the Shadow Sword Villa!”
“Revenge?” Luo Kun’s eyes became icier. “By just you? You can rest assured, she won’t be able to get away! I’ll get her back here, and I’ll let you personally witness her downfall with your own eyes!”
“Young Master Luo, the seal didn’t break yet! We have been attacking the seal for about a quarter of an hour, and the seal didn’t even show the slightest trace of being weakened.
Luo Kun’s face became even more gloomy when he heard this news from his men.
Everything went smoothly, but the seal was too difficult to break, and he could not forcibly break the seal either.
He knew that the Shadow was within his grasp, and the only problem is this seal.
“Did you get her back?” Luo Kun removed these useless thoughts, and turned around to ask his men.
“No news yet, but we have blocked all the exits around Shadow Sword Villa. She can’t escape for sure!”
“Enough! I don’t want to listen to any excuses, I only want the result! ” Grabbing the man by his neck, Luo Kun said, “Use any means to bring her back!”
Slowing down his ragged breathing, Luo Kun continued, “Keep interrogating the others for me. I don’t believe that these people’s bones can be so tough!”
The sound of fighting continued to resonate throughout the villa. The whole Shadow Sword Villa seemed to have become a battlefield by now.
Burning, plundering, and killing… nothing can be done to stop this chaotic situation!
Even though Luo Kun was the leader, the only reason why other people were willing to follow Luo Kun was due to the Shadow Sword Villa’s wealth.
The remaining shred of humanity seems to have disappeared completely at this moment.
Of course, this matter wasn’t of Luo Kun’s concern!
The only thing he cared about was the Shadow. As for the chaos inside Shadow Sword Villa, these events were insignificant to him…
When Zhou Boyan had returned back to the Shadow Sword Villa, blood and corpses were already everywhere, and the Shadow Sword Villa was almost completely destroyed.
Her heart turned cold upon this sight, and instead of leaving, she directly broke into the Sword Pavilion.
The appearance of Zhou Boyan had attracted everyone’s attention in an instant.
“Oh, isn’t this Miss Zhou? I didn’t expect you to come back by yourself.”
Luo Kun opened his mouth in jest, signaled others to stop speaking, and slowly walked towards Zhou Boyan.
“I am the master of the Shadow Sword Villa! Let my people go now!”
Her heart full of anger, Zhou Boyan spoke in an icy tone.
“Of course!” Nodding his head, Luo Kun lightly spoke, “As long as Miss Zhou can open the seal and hand over the Shadow, I’ll naturally let your clan elders go.”
“No, Miss! He won’t let us go. Don’t open the seal!”
Almost at the same time, several restrained people shouted at the same time.
A sword directly pierced his heart, and the man who shouted the loudest was instantly killed. Deng Mao slowly swept through the crowd without saying a word.
Zhou Boyan took a step forward, but was suddenly blocked by the cold blade.
“How touching!” Clapping his hands lightly, Luo Kun said, “Since you are in a hurry to die, I don’t mind sending you off earlier.”
“My patience is limited! From now on, every hundred breaths*, I will kill one person. Their life and death depends on you now.”
[* one breath of time is a poetic way of referring to a very short time span, so in case, hundred breaths is probably around 5 minutes]
It was not an exaggeration to say that almost all the people who were caught were the direct lineage of Shadow Sword Villa, and Zhou Boyan knew them well.
Even though she knew that Luo Kun won’t let them go, dying together and witnessing your relatives being killed in front of you was a different matter.
For Zhou Boyan, this was her most terrible nightmare!
A nightmare she can’t wake up from…
Wu Chi’s hands and feet were already numb from struggling for about half an hour. However, compared with the pain in his heart, these physical pain were nothing.
Half an hour has passed! Who knows… maybe everything had been settled…
The best escape timing had been missed, Wu Chi was certain that today’s Shadow Sword Villa was forced into a dead end.
Neither Zhou Boyan nor Wu Chi could accomplish anything from going back.
Logically speaking, fleeing was the best option now.
But as soon as he had recovered, Wu Chi rushed back to Shadow Sword Villa with his fastest speed.
No matter what, he has to take a look!
No matter how dangerous, and no matter what the result will be, Wu Chi wanted to personally confirm the outcome.
“Stupid woman… you must hold on!”
There seems to be a flame burning passionately in his heart, devouring the last bit of his reason.
His entire body was covered by a dense killing intent!
Wu Chi had never wanted to kill people more than this moment!
His blade had already become cold, but his heart was colder than the blade…
