248 – The cart driver’s power!
Chapter 248: The cart driver’s power!
The front face of the tall skinny boy knocked into a wall, his nose snapped with a sharp crisp sound, and then he slid down the wall.
The ash grey stone wall was stained with fresh red blood.
A horrifying sight!
The young children eyes widened with shock at the scene, watching the powerless Yuan Qing lying on the ground desperately trying to get up. It sent chills down their spines.
Yuan Qing is the son of General Yuan Wanli, who is in charge of the West City Walls, and although the Yuan family was not one of the most powerful families at the city of where the emperor lives, but to injure someone like this with a deadly blow——do they want to create deep hatred?
Who dares to be so vicious?
Everyone turned their heads to see a girl with a sweet smile and a blank look on her face.
“This girl is really pretty.” The older children thought.
“Hey, was it you who attacked from behind?” Some unromantic little brat that did not know how to appreciate beauty yelled at her.
“To injure him so badly, what deep grudge do you have against Yuan Qing?”
“If anything happens to Big brother Yuan, just you wait to bear the consequences——”
Li Shinian responded with an embarrassed smile: “I also did not think I could beat him with one punch, but the sight of you guys bullying someone made me erupt in anger and I was unable to control my strength——”
“What does our bullying has to do with you?” The leader was a youth wielding a long sword, eyeing Li Shinian coldly as he said viciously: “You injured our brother, don’t you think you should give an explanation?”
Among the crowd, peeped out a chubby head.
After catching sight of Li Shinian standing at the entrance to the alley, Lu Tianyu exclaimed, “Big sister, how come you’re here?”
Everyone stared at Li Shinian in confusion.
Didn’t Lu Tianyu’s big sister Lu Qiji went to Starry Sky Academy for further study? Where did another big sister come out from?
Li Shinian beckoned to Lu Tianyu, “Lu Tianyu, hurry come over.”
Lu Tianyu was about to run, when someone grabbed his lapel.
The young man with a sword said in a mocking tone: “Want to run? I’m afraid it’s not that easy. I had some business to settle with this boy, then you came and injured my people——lets settle the old and recent grudges together?”
Li Shinian eyed the sword boy with contempt, asking: “What is your name?”
“The Cui family?” Li Shinian’s mind fretted.
It was said that her brother killed someone of the Cui family, therefore she was particularly sensitive to the people of the Cui family.
“Cui Shaofeng, how old are you?”
“What’s the matter? Young lady——Do you fancy me?” Cui Shaofeng pursed his lips and laughed.
“Brother Shaofeng, it must be so, you’re so handsome, this young lady must like you——”
“Yes yes, why else would she ask about the age of Brother Shaofeng? She wanted to see if her age matches with Brother Shaofeng’s——”
“If you can become our sister-in-law, out of respect for Brother Feng, this matter——there could be room for discussion——”
“I’m blind.” Li Shinian suddenly stated.
The crowd looked at her eyes and said: “You’re not blind.”
“Yes. Your eyes are fine, how can you be blind?”
“She deliberately said it, to make us relax and not dare do anything to her——”
“Right? You can tell that I’m not blind. If I’m not blind, how would I have my eyes on a piece of trash?” Li Shinian said sharply.
“What did you say?” The crowd yelled.
Li Shinian fixed a stare on Cui Shaofeng. “Cui Shaofeng, are you not ashamed of yourself? You’re the oldest here, right? You’re almost an adult, yet you’re hanging around with a group of children to bully a younger child——if I were you, I would simply crash my head into a wall and die.”
Cui Shaofeng darkened immensely, clutching his sword more tightly. “It seems you do not want to leave today.”
“Of course I have to go. Not only do I have to go, but I’m also taking Lu Tianyu——” Li Shinian demanded. She pointed to Lu Tianyu and asked: “Do you know who he is? I don’t believe that at the city of the emperor, you could do anything to him——”
“Of course we can’t do much to him.” Cui Shaofeng smiled sinisterly. “The sort of thing like missing an arm or leg we won’t do it, but it may be possible that he would end up badly battered and unable to walk for 10 days——”
“Uncle Luo——” Li Shinian cried.
Wielding a long whip, Luo Xu strode over in huge steps, used his tall body to shield Li Shinian and calmly glared at Cui Shaofeng. “Give Young Master to me.”
Cui Shaofeng looked up and down at Luo Xu disdainfully as he scoffed: “Who are you? I have to give it when you tell me to?”
Luo Xu lashed out his whip and Cui Shaofeng, who was about to draw his sword, was struck in the hand.
Luo Xu knew these guys are the sons of nobles, and without master’s permission he must not hurt them. So there was a sense of discretion, his whip only left a bloodstain on Cui Shaofeng’s hand and not directly lashed off his entire hand.
Bearing the pain, sweat beaded on Cui Shaofeng’s forehead.
His hand clenching his sword trembled endlessly, to the point that the hilt of the blade also shook.
“You——” Cui Shaofeng fixed a piercing stare at Luo Xu, unable to contain his anger, he yelled: “You are just dog of the Lu family, you dare to hit me——you know who I am?”
“Give me back Young Master.” Luo Xu repeated. His voice was steady and his face calm. He did not say anything else and just demanded Cui Shaofeng to give back his young master.
“Brother Shaofeng——” The boy grabbing onto Lu Tianyu was a little scared, whispering: “What now?”
“Don’t give him over.” Cui Shaofeng said forcefully. “I don’t believe he could kill me—”
With his right hand shivering constantly, he threw the sword on the ground.
He smacked his chest loudly and yelled at Luo Xu: “Come on. Kill me if you have the ability——”
Luo Xu snapped his long whip forward, lashing Cui Shaofeng’s other hand.
This whip was heavier, blood splattered, his skin split and flesh broke forth.
“What do you want?” The boy who had his grip on Lu Tianyu was so nervous that he fumbled out a dagger and pointed the edge of the blade at the neck of Lu Tianyu, screaming: “If you dare move closer, I will pierce his neck——”
Luo Xu flung out his whip, which coiled around the dagger, and he pulled, thrusting it into the distant wall.
The dagger pierced into the hard stonewall, including the hilt.
While the youngsters were distracted, another whip was swung out, pulling Lu Tianyu into the air and Luo Xu caught hold of him.
Cui Shaofeng and the others looked at each other in dismay, and even Li Shinian seemed like she just saw a ghost.
“The cart driver is a——a skilled master?”
