Cheeky Sword God - Chapter 14
Dressed in a white mourning dress, Zhou Boyan knelt down before the tombstone and watched Zhou Yuanting’s corpse being buried. Her tears slowly dropped to the ground.
At this moment, her heart was filled with endless loneliness, as if the whole world had abandoned her.
There were many people who came to mourn, but… how many of them were truly sincere?
Zhou Boyan felt that behind her back, there were countless eyes aiming at her, their gazes were filled with disdain, greed, killing intent, and cold indifference, but she didn’t care.
Watching the mud fill up the grave, Zhou Boyan’s mind was empty, as if she had been isolated from the world.
“Father… daughter is incompetent, daughter can’t protect the Shadow Sword Villa, daughter can’t protect daughter’s relatives, but… daughter will come to accompany you soon!”
Wu Chi did not attend the funeral, he did not even have the time to look at the funeral.
Wu Chi felt that it was more important for him to find a way to save the living than to mourn for the dead.
“Young Master Wu, is this really appropriate?” Although it was not the first time that they had heard about the plan, when the plan was about to be executed, they still held some doubts towards the plan.
“Stupid! Riches and valuable resources are earned from putting your life on the line, have not heard of this phrase before? With this amount of courage, you deserved to be a waste all your life.”
With a grunt, Wu Chi rudely scolded these men, “Rest assured, as long as you can finish this task, you will never have to worry about eating and drinking for the rest of your life. Maybe one of you can break through and dominate the world!”
“Stealing the prey from the tiger’s den. If Young Master Luo knows of this, where else can we go?” Some of these men were still a bit afraid, and cautiously asked.
“Coward! Do you think you’re that great? Do you think Luo Kun, a disciple of Tian Shan will remember your face? After leaving here, even if he bumps into you in the future, do you think he will remember you?”
Wu Chi slapped the man on the head while continuing, “Besides, Luo Kun’s mind must be occupied by the matter of the Shadow now. Why would he take the matter of an insignificant figure like you into his hands?”
“Remember, our goal is to kidnap Zhou Boyan, as long as we take her, we can get the wealth of the entire Shadow Sword Villa from her! I won’t believe that Shadow Sword has no hidden property outside! We can’t be too greedy either. As soon as we get the gold taels, and the elixirs, we can immediately disperse and flee! Who would even remember us if we had already left Shadow Sword Villa?”
After Wu Chi had said that these men’s hearts could not help but skip a beat.
To say that the current master of the Shadow Sword Villa doesn’t have any wealth left, who would believe that?
Thinking of Zhou Boyan’s beautiful face, one of them felt more greedy. “Young Master Wu, after we had tied her up, can we…?”
With the downfall of Shadow Sword Villa, they were no longer afraid of Zhou Boyan.
With another slap landed on the man’s head, Wu Chi scorned him with a sidelong look. “Idiot, what’s the reason I spent so much effort on this matter? Did you think that I only want valuable treasures?
“I warn you, Zhou Boyan is mine! No one can have any ideas on her!”
After Wu Chi said that, the rest of the people became relieved. Wu Chi’s identity was different from theirs after all, they didn’t believe that Wu Chi would partake in such matters for just some treasures. But if they bring Zhou Boyan’s beauty into account, this was a more reasonable reason for Wu Chi to personally act.
Being born beautiful is a gift and a curse at the same time!
It’s worth the risk for such a beautiful woman! However, the depressed Zhou Boyan was not a deadbeat either. Keeping a dangerous woman close might not really be a great idea. The worst outcome for them was to return empty-handed, but for Wu Chi, he might really lose his life by keeping such a dangerous woman by his side.
Of course, they would not say these words to Wu Chi.
Anyway, they and Wu Chi were just making use of each other, and they were also the threatened party. If Wu Chi lost his life due to this, it would be in their best interests.
“Rest assured, Young Master Wu, we will do whatever you say! We absolutely won’t have any ulterior motives.”
Nodding satisfactorily, Wu Chi licked his lips and continued, “Remember, do as planned, don’t arouse any suspicion! Otherwise, with the strength of us, there is no chance at all to capture Zhou Boyan.”
“Miss, let’s go back.”
Helping Zhou Boyan stand up, Uncle Shui said while sighing.
The crowd began to disperse, not towards the Shadow Sword Villa exit, but towards the Sword Pavilion, their intention was crystal clear.
“Let’s go, as long as I’m alive, nobody can take away the Shadow!” Zhou Boyan spoke up resolutely, her eyes determined.
At this point, she was giving it all. Her life and death were nothing!
“Chase him! Since he dared to come back, Young Master Luo said that as long as you kill him, you will be rewarded with gold taels. Brothers, don’t let him run away!”
Suddenly, the voice of people chasing each other resounded from the woods, and most importantly, from the corner of her eyes, Zhou Boyan seemed to recognize a familiar figure.
A slight tremor has appeared in her heart!
Why did he come back?
“Uncle Shui, have you seen who they are chasing?”
“No, this matter is not of our concern. Let them play cat and mouse.” Shaking his head, Uncle Shui replied indifferently.
“No, I’m going to have a look!” Although it’s not very clear what she saw, Zhou Boyan’s heart was already in a disarray. Her intuition told her that the person who was being pursued was Wu Chi.
Putting these thoughts on the back of her mind, Zhou Boyan followed the person into the woods by foot.
This time, Uncle Shui did not follow Zhou Boyan as before, but sighed softly and turned back to the Sword Pavilion.
Wu Chi ran very fast. It seemed that he needed to change his plans.
When the men who were with Wu Chi shouted loudly, the voices of these people were heard by others, and more than a dozen people who did not know of the plan joined in the pursuit.
Some of these people were probably Luo Kun’s people who wanted to kill Wu Chi. Although their strength was not too overwhelming, under such chaotic circumstances, coupled with Wu Chi’s intention to lead Zhou Boyan over, Wu Chi needed as much chaos as possible.
The good thing was, of course, that these people followed suit and made the situation more realistic.
Wu Chi did not look back, but his heart was full of confidence that Zhou Boyan would follow him.
At the beginning, these people started to doubt whether Zhou Boyan would follow Wu Chi or not.
If Zhou Boyan did not follow him, his plan would go down the drain…
Zhou Boyan, after all, had enough strength to catch up with Wu Chi, and her speed was much faster than that of other people.
With just a glance at the silhouette, Zhou Boyan immediately confirmed that the person being pursued was Wu Chi.
Thinking that Wu Chi came back for her, Zhou Boyan felt an inexplicable emotion in her heart—her heart lit up with joy!
He came back for me!
At this moment, the feeling of being abandoned by the whole world seemed to disappear without a trace.
It’s enough to know that someone still genuinely cares about you.
At the same time, Zhou Boyan also became murderous!
Shadow Sword Villa was already forced to this point, she had already planned to sacrifice everything. How could she be afraid of killing?
With one stab, the nearest man was blown away, then she grabbed her sword, and started her massacre.
After Zhou Boyan had made her move, Wu Chi immediately followed suit. He took out his sword and started his counter-attack.
Killing wasn’t a difficult matter.
Although Wu Chi had never killed anyone before, it seemed that everything became insignificant the moment he pulled out his sword!
The sword itself was a weapon tailored for killing!
The counterattack came abruptly, and the people who were following Wu Chi were caught in surprise!
These people suffered a fatal blow without the time to respond.
In less than the time it takes to brew a cup of tea, most of Wu Chi’s pursuers had been killed, and the men that made a deal with Wu Chi pretended to notice that something was wrong, and immediately fled.
After seeing Zhou Boyan coming after his pursuers, Wu Chi became relaxed.
Up to now, everything seems to have been carried out in accordance with Wu Chi’s plan, which was to trap Zhou Boyan.
Additionally, Zhou Boyan didn’t suspect him at all.
Her eyes filled with tears, Zhou Boyan bit her lip, and asked Wu Chi. “Didn’t Uncle Shui send you away? Why did you come back?”
With a slight smile on his lips, Wu Chi shrugged his shoulders and said, “Who knows… maybe I got lost and somehow came back here?”
After hearing Wu Chi’s explanation, Zhou Boyan rolled her eyes and ignored his explanation.
Seeing a figure appearing from the distance, Wu Chi’s mouth suddenly turned cold, he rushed towards Zhou Boyan, and aimed his hand towards her throat while threatening her, “Miss Zhou, don’t move, I’ll strangle you if you make any moves! Hand all your possessions to me!”
Zhou Boyan was at a loss. Wu Chi’s sudden change had taken her by surprise!
Even though Wu Chi was threatening her, his hands did not contain any strength.
Was this how you should threaten others?
Seeing Wu Chi’s movements, the men immediately became relaxed.
Everything was developed according to Wu Chi’s plan, and all that remained now was to harvest the fruits of victory.
Coming over with a smile, several people praised Wu Chi’s plan.
“Young Master Wu, great plan!”
“Of course, I, Wu Chi, am great!”
Wu Chi shamelessly accepted these men’s praises and had a triumphant face.
These men happily walked over to Wu Chi and when they came within the radius of three meters of him, he suddenly exploded with power.
In the blink of an eye, a sword light flashed out from Wu Chi, accompanied by a cold killing intent!
With this close of a distance, coupled with the element of surprise, Wu Chi did not give these men any time to react, much less a chance to fight back.
One move—one man killed!
When their comrade was killed, these men were still in disbelief. Instead of keeping an eye on Zhou Boyan who was more threatening, Wu Chi suddenly turned his back, and launched a surprise attack, swiftly killing another man.
The plan wasn’t like this!
