Chapter 249: When the wind blows again!
Lu Tianyu landed on his feet, shuddering with fear he ran to hold Li Shinian’s hand and sobbed: “Big sister, I was almost stabbed to death——they bullied me.”
“Why did they bully you?” Li Shinian asked.
Lu Tianyu pointed his finger at Cui Shaofeng: “They are people of the Cui family.”
This answer that they are people of the Cui family was enough to explain everything. The Cui and Lu family are old enemies and were recently in fierce competition over the position of left government minister. Li Muyang by chance disturbed the situation of the battle, accidentally killed the Head of the Monitoring Division Cui Zhaoren that the Cui Family had put immense effort in nurturing, and the lady of the Lu Family had travelled far to Jiangnan to collect the family of Li Muyang, hindering the Cui family’s revenge plot, and she said it was because of the previous master and servant relationship——
This incident was tantamount to adding fuel to the fire!
Previously, the Cui and Lu family scrambled for power, but at least they maintained calm on the surface. But ever since Li Muyang killed Cui Zhaoren, the two families were like fire and water, the Lu family’s Lu Xingkong and the Cui family’s Cui Xichen were called to the emperor everyday and have had many arguments in front of the Emperor.
The one above did not deal with the situation, so the people below naturally maintained hostility.
Sometimes the juniors of the Lu family found opportunities to torment the people of the Cui family, and sometimes the juniors of the Cui family gathered to ambush the people of the Lu family.
Today Lu Tianyu was on his own, therefore was captured by the people of Cui Family.
Before the arrival of Li Shinian, Lu Tianyu had suffered a lot. Besides a bloodied nose and a swollen face, his eyes also turned into dark panda like eyes from the bruises. Luckily Li Shinian timely came to the rescue, if not Lu Tianyu would have continued to be unlucky.
Just that in a moment of desperation, Li Shinian was unable to control the strength of ‘The art of the breaking body’, so with one punch, directly sent Yuan Qing flying across the air.
The cart driver Luo Xu swung his whip a few times and had immediately frightened the whole audience.
Everyone stared at Luo Xu in dumbstruck horror. No one dared to provoke him.
Luo Xu stunned the whole audience with his skill, but he knew he could could not seriously injure these sons of nobles. Like the boys also knew that they couldn’t really do anything to Lu Tianyu.
At least not on the surface.
Otherwise, when the Cui family really comes to their door, it would instead bring trouble to the Lu family.
Luo Xu fixed a cold glare at the group of children. “Can we go now?”
No one answered.
Even if Cui Shaofeng was unwilling to watch them leave, there was no way he could block Luo Xu.
He even dared not to act tough; a true vicious person would not try to get the last word in. He knew he could get his revenge later.
“Let’s go.” Luo Xu turned and said to Lu Tianyu and Li Shinian.
Lu Tianyu looked at Cui Shaofeng with a mischievous grin and gave him the thumbs-up.
Cui Shaofeng looked even more embarrassed, thinking to himself that he must one day let this kid know of his power. When the moment comes he must cut off his fingers.
“Haunting Soul Whip Luo Xu has long been a famous figure of the kingdom and had defeated countless strong opponents, but today ran to an alley to bully a group of children, are you not afraid of being ridiculed?” A loud, clear voice echoed over.
At the entrance to the alley appeared a middle-aged man clad in green.
“Uncle Ning.” Cui Shaofeng exclaimed.
‘Heart Buddha’ Ning Xinhai. No one expected him to come here.
Ning Xinhai bowed to Cui Shaofeng: “Sixth Young Master.”
Cui Shaofeng reinforcements have arrived, the momentum had changed. He pointed to cart driver Luo Xu. “Uncle Ning, this person has gone too far.”
He showed his hands to Ning Xinhai, which were bloodied and badly mutilated, even if it were treated with the best wound medicine they looked like they wouldn’t heal without at least 10 days or half a month.
Ning Xinhai nodded, indicating that he already understood the situation.
He looked at Haunting Soul Whip Luo Xu and said: “That really is a good whip. It would be hard for these kids to defend, right? ”
Luo Xu looked expressionless at Ning Xinhai, aware that this person was an extremely powerful master and also one of the strongest enemies he had encountered before.
“They did something wrong, I just taught them a little lesson. If I intended to injure him, his hands would have been gone already.”
“Of course. If the Soul Haunting Whip showed no mercy, not only would his hands not be on his body anymore, even his head would have been gone——”
Luo Xu furrowed his brows, glaring at Ning Xinhai. “What do you want?”
“Want an explanation for them. You want to leave after beating them like that?” Ning Xinhai smiled. “If I didn’t come here would you stop, good thing I was passing by, I have to stand up and maintain the Cui family’s reputation.”
Luo Xu pointed to Lu Tianyu. “The Young Master of the Lu family has been injured by them, are you going to give an explanation then?”
“That’s just minor injuries.”
“If we didn’t show up in time, there would have been internal injuries.”
“Interesting.” Ning Xinhai’s green robe billowed and fluttered behind him, his hand hidden in the long sleeve cage flashing red.
He coldly eyed cart driver Luo Xu. “I had wanted to experience the taste of Soul Haunting Whip for a long time. It’s better to meet each other by chance than to make an appointment, why not today.”
The whip in Luo Xu’s hand was like a long snake, soft and flexible, and used as a whip for the horse.
Now that a formidable opponent had appeared before him, without much movement, the long whip hardened to as tough as iron and was grasped firmly in his hand like a spear ready for attack.
“Then Heart Buddha, I hope to learn from you.” Luo Xu proudly said, gripping his spear tightly, like a gray-robed god of war.
Hearing from their dialogue that Soul Haunting Whip and Heart Buddha were about to fight, everyone took several steps back.
Given their current cultivation state, if they did not exercise control over their strength even for a moment, most likely this street would also be destroyed by them.
The Cui mansion’s Chess Room.
A middle-aged man in grey scampered in and whispered into the ear of Cui family’s old grandfather Cui Xichen.
Cui Xichen turned red with rage as he roared: “Outrageous, the Lu family wants to shit on our Cui family? A cart driver dares to hurt the children of my family? Gu Mo take someone over to see.”
“Yes.” Wielding a giant sword, Gu Mo boomed.
The Lu mansion’s study.
Lu Xingkong was in the study correcting documents, when the old butler pushed open the door. “Master, Young Master and Miss Shinian clashed with people of the Cui family.”
“Hmm.” Lu Xingkong nodded, as though he did not care much. It was too common to hear the children of the Lu and Cui family attacking each other during this time. “Anyone hurt?”
“No one was badly injured”. The old butler nodded. “However, the Cui family’s Heart Buddha Ning Xinhai rushed over and said he wants to make sure that justice is served for the Cui family, and is now about to fight with Luo Xu.”
Lu Xingkong’s face darkened, setting down the brush in the hand and pondering for a short moment, before he uttered: “That old guy of the Cui family was the first to attack?”
