Cheeky Sword God - Chapter 4
After witnessing Wu Chi assuming a charming sword pose like a woman, Zhou Boyan finally burst into laughter.
It was her first laugh ever since she heard about the news of her father’s death.
Hearing Zhou Boyan’s laughter, without looking back, Wu Chi could also imagine how awkward he was now.
Despite his hate towards her, Wu Chi still managed to finish the challenge. He then retracted his sword and stood in front of Zhou Boyan.
“Miss Zhou, are you satisfied now?” Wu Chi asked with a beet red face.
Zhou Boyan slightly raised the corner of her lip, and with a huge smile on her face, she said.
“Yes, I believe you now.”
In fact, Zhou Boyan had already believed him when Wu Chi gave her his explanations. At first, she just wanted to confirm what Wu Chi had said before by forcing him to perform this specific sword dance. But her real motive was that she merely wanted to play tricks on this odious guy…
Zhou Boyan’s smile was very touching, but in Wu Chi’s eyes, no matter how beautiful the smile was, it was just a smile of mockery.
Wu Chi’s face became black, he turned around and left. This time, he didn’t even say goodbye.
Really shameful! A gentleman like him was forced to learn a woman’s sword dance, this shame would follow him till his death.
“Mister Wu, hold on.”
As Wu Chi was turning around, Zhou Boyan’s voice sounded again and she blocked Wu Chi’s path.
“Petty woman, we had a deal, what else do you want?”
After being stopped again, Wu Chi was enraged.
“I merely asked you to perform the sword dance once, but how come you’re so angry? Aren’t you ashamed to call me petty?” She curled her lips casually, and her counterattack was sharp.
“A mere sword dance? It IS a big deal! What do you mean?”
Just like the time when she was faced with the greedy Tian Shan’s disciples, Zhou Boyan was able to strike them back with just her words, in contrast, this was just a small case.
In other words, it was too hard to get a lead from this girl by using words.
At the thought of this, Wu Chi forcefully calmed himself down, “Miss Zhou, we had discussed our terms, and according to our agreement, can you let me go now?”
“No!” Zhou Boyan gave an immediate answer, “If you want to leave, you must promise me something.”
“What? Why?” Wu Chi felt like his anger was about to burst out.
“A gentleman does not take back their own words! We had a deal, why should I take on your condition? You’re so unreasonable!”
“You are right! I am unreasonable.” Blinking her eyes, Zhou Boyan answered straightforwardly, “I am not a gentleman, but a petty woman.”
“Sister, I’m in the wrong! I shouldn’t call you a petty woman. Please be magnanimous and let your younger brother go, okay?” Wanting to cry but no tears came out, Wu Chi humbly said, “I promise you, I will never ever call you a petty woman again, is that ok?”
“Bah, who is your sister!” Her face became slightly red, and she stepped back.
Zhou Boyan then continued, “Besides, I don’t want to embarrass you. My condition is a small one. You refused my condition before even listening to it. Who’s the petty one now?”
“A small condition?” Wu Chi looked up, seeking her confirmation.
“Then tell me what the condition is.” Wu Chi looked at Zhou Boyan who was acting suspicious, and asked tentatively.
“It’s very simple. You have to accompany me to practice the sword every day and help me comprehend the Shadow Sword Technique.” Pointing to the place they’re standing on, Zhou Boyan said casually.
“No!!!” Wu Chi immediately jumped up.
How was this a small condition?
“Anyways, you learned the Shadow Sword Technique from me, right? Don’t you think you should do something back in return?”
“… That was a coincidence, I didn’t want to learn the sword technique, and I will forget about it after a nap, so it doesn’t count.” Wu Chi shook his head like a rattle drum, and he began to act shamelessly.
Seriously? I have to practice sword with this girl everyday? His senior brother had already forced him to practice, but now he was also forced to practice sword by this young girl. No absolutely way!
Besides, judging from the current situation, the troubles of Shadow Sword Villa would keep multiplying as day passes by. No one knew how many eyes were on the Shadow Sword Villa. At a time like this, the Shadow Sword Villa was like a ticking time bomb, it was almost suicidal to get close to Zhou Boyan.
Since this little girl gave him an unreasonable demand, Wu Chi would also be unreasonable.
But he obviously forgot that he could not match this woman in terms of playing tricks.
“And there’s the matter regarding the sword dance. You had learned the sword dance from me. In the entire world, I’m the only one who knows of this sword dance. I have tried my best to teach you, and I only wanted you to help me practice sword, such a small request, how can you not agree?”
“What nonsense the sword dance is!” Speaking of the sword dance, Wu Chi became angry again. “No one wants to learn it, even the ghost!”
“Well, since you refuse to accompany me on my sword practice, I’ll have to tell your senior brother that you have sneakily learned the Shadow Sword Technique from me. Who knows… you might be coveting the Shadow too! If that’s the case, the Iron Sword Group needs to give me an explanation.”
She immediately brought up the matter of the Iron Sword Group and Shadow Sword Villa, and instantly turned the tide of conversation towards her.
There was no way out, because she was the master of the Shadow Sword Villa now. This was a threat.
Wu Chi pointed at Zhou Boyan, but no words would come out of his mouth.
“Well, are you going to accept or not?” Feeling impatient, Zhou Boyan asked again.
“Impatient? You’re impatient!”
Wu Chi’s heart was pounding fast. No wonder people said that women were troublesome. Moreover, the more beautiful the women, the more troublesome they would be!
Although this little girl was not necessarily the most beautiful woman Wu Chi had ever seen, she was definitely the most troublesome one.
After mentally struggling for a long time, Wu Chi finally succumbed with tears.
“Petty woman, you… win!”
Wu Chi opened the door of the courtyard with an angry look on his face. During the way back, Wu Chi still has not been able to recover from the blow.
The little girl was so insatiable.
Knowing the fact that Wu Chi was scared of his senior brother, she directly forced him to compromise on her terms. Additionally, she had to make sure that he didn’t slip away before she had comprehended the sword technique.
As for the trouble that might arise from her actions, the little girl did not mention a word.
“Little boy, you’re back! How did finding the Sword Storing Pavilion go?”
When Wu Chi came back, the black-robed men immediately surrounded him and urgently questioned him.
Hearing their voice, Wu Chi finally regained his consciousness and returned his mind to the courtyard.
The once clean and tidy courtyard had been messed up by these men, the courtyard was littered with wine pots and gnawed bones, the stone tables and benches Wu Chi sat on before became a mess.
The worst part was that they dared to ask him if he had found the Sword Storing Pavilion!
“Look for your sister! This young master was almost killed by that woman, and you still have the face to ask me for results?” Wu Chi became angrier at the thought of Zhou Boyan, and cursed at these men angrily.
After being cursed by Wu Chi, these guys were momentarily stunned, and then they flew into a rage.
“Boy, do you want to die? We had treated you with respect, that’s why we were friendly to you and also gave you the silver coins. And you promised us to get the map, but now you dared to get mad at us?” The leader rolled up his sleeves, and grasped Wu Chi’s collar with a fierce gleam in his eyes.
Wu Chi suddenly became violent, immediately kicking out the man, and at the same time, he grabbed the man’s arm, so that the man would be rooted at the same place.
The man felt a sharp pain in his lower abdomen and curled up like a shrimp, he almost spat out what he had just eaten.
But before he could respond, one kick followed another in succession and he soon was pinned to the ground, with Wu Chi stepping on his chest with a sullen face.
“Since I can provoke that little girl, why can’t I provoke you, the rubbish, too?”
Without waiting for the other’s reaction, that man was picked up by the lift of Wu Chi’s foot. At the same time, Wu Chi turned his palm and attacked the others simultaneously.
These people were all bark no bite. They usually bully the weak people with their insignificant strength and shrink in face of the strong. Although they looked fierce, they were just small fries.
Earlier, Wu Chi didn’t want to create a ruckus, which was why he treated them with respect, but now since he was angry, he vented his pent-up anger on these people, how could they be safe?
In less than 15 minutes, all of them were beaten up, their state reduced to crawling.
Wu Chi came to the leader and squatted down, and he coldly said.
“You want your money back? Very well, I’ll return it to you.”
During the conversation, Wu Chi stuffed the silver coins into the leader’s mouth.
Wu Chi cursed at the leader, slapped his face repeatedly, and forced him to eat the silver coins.
“I gave the money back to you now, bastard! Can you let me not see that little girl again… say something!”
It was just for the money that he had bumped into the girl and faced so much trouble. Thinking back to the situation, he blamed himself for being greedy and wanted to even chop his hands off.
Of course, chopping his own hands was too heartless. Since there was an idiot for him to vent his anger on, there was no reason not to do that.
“Take a look at yourself. How dare you have the slightest idea of stealing the sword! You were even daring enough to include me on the plan that made me get into such a big trouble! ”
Wu Chi didn’t know how long it took him to calm his ragged breath.
Kicking the guy in front of him, he grabbed a jar of unopened wine from the stone table and poured it into his mouth.
He then said with a sneer, “I give you thirty minutes to clean up this mess for me. Otherwise, get ready to crawl for the rest of your life.”
