All those who were present were stunned.
Of all six American and Chinese forces, a total of 600 over men, none had any idea why Chen Xiaobei, who was obviously vulnerable against them, had the audacity to face them.
If he did not fear death, then there was surely an ulterior motive behind such bravery.
Of course, whatever it was, none of them believed that Chen Xiaobei had the slightest chance at winning this fight at all.
Even if Chen Xiaobei had come prepared, the most he could do was probably cause some negligible damage. At the end of the day, when all had been said and done, he would still be defeated!
"Brothers! Ignore this piece of shit! Just charge forward! Bust his cultivation! Destroy his limbs! Let’s see what he can do then! Charge!!!"
One of the chivalric order let out a battle cry, and the whole cohort was immediately rallied with a raging battle spirit. They all swore that they would never stop before they could kill Chen Xiaobei.
"What a bunch of brave fools! Since you don’t fear death, here, have a taste of my Divine Instrument!"
Genius Seventh Prince Chen Xiaobei tossed the scroll he was holding into the air.
Immediately, the whole place was bathed in a blood red radiance.
At first, his enemies were taken aback, but they quickly recovered from the initial shock, and began to make a mockery of him.
"Hey kid! Do you think we’re so easily fooled? You want us to believe that you have a Divine Instrument? Please, not even an idiot would believe that!" Leo broke into mocking laughter.
"We all know that Spiritual Instruments are already a rarity here on earth; Divine Instruments are practically nonexistent! Why not try using your brains before you try to pass on a lie? What a bad joke!" Prince Tyler threw his head back, laughing away.
"If that is a Divine Instrument, I will eat shit and I will live stream it!" Deeker the Grand Sorcerer sneered.
It was not just them. Even the Chinese could not believe that the scroll was a Divine Instrument either.
Earth lacked a lot of resources. Spiritual Instruments were extremely rare items, and no one on earth had ever seen an actual Divine Instrument before!
Chen Xiaobei ignored the jeers and cynicism. "You guys know nothing about Divine Instruments! Oh, Blood Gods, Slaughter Deities!"
The scroll unfurled, and revealed a painting which was a couple of meters long before the rowdy crowd.
They fell silent.
Gasps echoed throughout the assembly.
Every person present trembled when they laid their eyes on the painting.
There was red sea of fire frolicking above the painting, from which skeletons of warhorses and evil spirits of soldiers in the thousands charged forward. it was as if they had just been released from the gates of the underworld to obliterate all living creatures, wreaking hell and woe wherever they trampled!
An intense feeling of despair and hopelessness invaded the hearts of the people, as if the apocalypse had arrived, and hell had descended upon them.
"Oh, Great Holy Light! Soul Garrison!" The paladin Leo shouted all of a sudden.
Holy Light exploded and covered the people around him, so that their hearts were fortified, and the state of their minds somewhat steadied, greatly reducing their fears of the painting.
"What a scary evil object! Everyone, turn away! Don’t look at it and you’ll be fine!"
Cold sweat washed Prince Tyler’s forehead. Powerful as he was, he too, was unable to shake the terror that the painting had induced.
"Is… This really a Divine Instrument?"
None of the 300 Americans dared move an inch forward. They all stopped in their tracks, paralyzed with fear.
"No, it’s not!" The Grand Sorcerer said. "This is an evil occult object that plants fear in the hearts of those who look at it! Just take your eyes off the painting, and keep charging forward! Kill Chen Xiaobei and this evil illusion will disappear!"
"You’re right! Let’s continue our attack! Wait… Huh? Why are my feet stuck? What the hell is this?" Leo was about to lead his men forward when he realized that he could not move.
He looked down and saw that a lick of red flame had wrapped around his legs. No matter how hard he fought against it, he could not seem to lift his feet off the ground.
"My feet are bound too!"
"Mine too!"Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click http://www.webnovel.com for visiting.
"The Blood Descendants are above ground but why are our feet bound too? What is happening?"
Alarmed voices filled the air. All 600 people, the Chinese and the Americans, were shackled by a blood red fire, unable to move.
Except for Chen Xiaobei, of course.
Chen Xiaobei was standing under the Blood God’s Deity Killing painting that was hovering in the air, shedding its red luminesce on the ground where the red fires burned as far as 300 meters all around.
This area was the slaughter zone of the Blood God’s Illusions!
Those whose strength were lesser than the demigods would find themselves moored if they entered the area!
"So? How does it taste?" A smile played on Chen Xiaobei’s lips as he surveyed his attackers.
"My god… It’s that… That painting is restraining all of us! Spiritual Instruments are not this powerful! This is more like a Divine Instrument! Th… This must be a Divine Instrument!"
The crowd shuddered at this stunning realization.
Chen Xiaobei revealed a sinister smile, and said, "Oh… wait… It’s not done yet!" Chapter 105: Discussing something important today
"You’ve slimmed down." Situ Mingze said, with a little tenderness in his eyes.
"Not too slim, just enough." Rose dully replied.
Everybody had difficulty understanding just what was going on, didn’t this pair of father and daughter of the underworld have a fall out which resulted in them pointing swords at each other for years? Why would he tranquilly and caringly talk about his daughter’s figure!?
Situ Mingze looked at Rose’s supple and tender face, sighed and said, "You look more and more like your mother, practically the same as her when she was young."
"I don’t remember." Rose apathetically said.
"You should not remember, for she left us after giving birth to you. Speaking of that, you mother and daughter are really fickle to me, she left me after giving birth to you, while you left me once you grew up." Situ Mingze lamented.
"The crux of the problem is you, not us."
"That’s because the two of you have no way of understanding me."
Rose’s face remained calm and unyielding, "Have you come here just to say such things?"
"Don’t say that, I’m your father after all. Whether you admit it or not, half of the blood in your body comes from me, there’s no way you can deny this." Situ Mingze seemed a little pleased, "No matter how strong and obstinate you become, in this lifetime you will have the name ‘Situ’ imprinted on you, Situ Rose."
Rose clenched her fist, and then loosened it, "You’ve aged, and like to speak nonsense."
"Haha……" Situ Mingze raised his head and laughed, "That’s true, I’ve aged. Recently I have grown more and more white hairs, but luckily I have a good daughter like you, so I won’t be lonely when I grow old."
"You will be lonely." Rose resolutely said.
"That’s hard to say." Situ Mingze gave a strange glance at Rose’s body, "Your gunshot wound, is it alright?"
Rose sneered, "Thank you for caring, your subordinates don’t have much skill in shooting a gun."
"I’m glad that you weren’t seriously hurt after getting shot, truly…… Although it’s a pity, you would still be able to participate in the banquet next week since you’re healthy." Said Situ Mingze.
"Be rest assured, I will attend." Rose said, "If that’s all, you may leave."
Right at that moment, one of the young heads in Red Thorns Society picked up a call. He chatted on the phone for awhile, then ran to Rose’s side in a flurry to whisper something into her ear.
Rose’s expression changed, she looked at Situ Mingze’s smug face, and gazed sharply at him, "Your thick skin and judgement of seizing every opportunity is greater than me."
"Haha, when one has aged, one would like to do things the lazy way. Rather than crossing swords with you people, why not directly take back the territory during this period of time." What My Wife is a Country Bumpkin Situ Mingze said with a smile, "It’s good now, I’ve taken back the three territories you snatched without losing a single brother, I welcome all of you to try snatch it again, I won’t guard them heavily, this is true……"
After saying that, Situ Mingze waved his hand, and everybody from the West Union Society stood up. Some of them were already brazenly laughing their hearts out while following Situ Mingze as they walked out of Rose bar’s entrance.
Several men of Red Thorns Society breathed a sigh of relief, but after seeing Rose frown, they walked up to her to ask what had happened.
Rose briefly explained, and everybody was filled with resentment.
It turned out that while Rose was hurt and the Red Thorns Society was in chaos, Situ Mingze regained control of the three territories that the Red Thorns Society had taken from him by brazenly sending a large number of people there.
Yang Chen who was watching this scene play out from the bar counter finally finished his third glass of cocktail. He made a few alcohol burps and got off the stool. He then walked over to Rose’s side, embraced her in front of everybody, and patted her tender back.
"Don’t frown, all of this will end after next week’s banquet."
Rose leaned her head on Yang Chen’s shoulder, sniffing the man’s scent of smoke and alcohol in enjoyment, and slightly nodded.
All of the youngsters in Red Thorns Society revealed shock and awkward smiles as they watched their boss gently lean into this man’s embrace, but all of them silently gave these two their blessing.
While leaving the bar, Yang Chen took a look at the time, it was already past noon. He rubbed his stomach and felt hungry, yet he was too lazy to rush back to the company for lunch. He suddenly remembered the restaurant that Liu Mingyu had brought him to previously. The food there was pretty good and it was close by, so he just drove there alone.
After getting into the restaurant, the waiter led him to a table for two that was right beside the wall. As he was alone, Yang Chen was too lazy to order drinks, so he straightforwardly ordered one meat and one vegetable dish, along with a soup bun to go along with the meal, planning to go back to the company for an afternoon nap after eating.
Before the dishes came, a group of people entered from the main door in front of him. Yang Chen was stunned when he noticed that he recognized this group of people, it was the Li family whom he hasn’t seen for a while!
But what made Yang Chen feel more weird was that there wasn’t just Old Li, Li Jingjing and Aunt Li, there was one other familiar person; Jiang Shuo!
As he had to go to the company and hospital lately, along with the various situations that he had to deal with, it had been long time since Yang Chen contacted Li Jingjing, but Li Jingjing also didn’t take the initiative to contact him.
It has been a while since they last met, and Yang Chen noticed that Li Jingjing seemed a little more haggard than before. She wore a simple white dress, carried a dull coffee colored bag, and her hair was tied into a ponytail. She looked mature yet elegant than she had been before, perhaps it was because she became a teacher, and was no longer the innocent college student from before. She had become more like an educated city woman, revealing confidence while still being extremely attractive.
At that point, Li Jingjing was supporting her mother in walking, while Old Li was happily chatting with Jiang Shuo who led the way; they walked in Yang Chen’s direction.
Today, Jiang Shuo wore a fitting black suit with a red tie, had combed hair glistening with gel, and looking manly with his rather handsome face. There was smiles and laughter as he chatted with Old Li, he seemed very warm and humble.
The waitress was about to lead the four to their table when Old Li just happened to glance at Yang Chen who sat beside the wall while looking his way with a smile.
"Little Yang, you’re here too?" Old Li still liked Yang Chen very much, so he displayed a face of sincere happiness.
Li Jingjing, Aunt Li and Jiang Shuo also turned to look at Yang Chen who was eating alone at the same time. Aunt Li was a little displeased, while Li Jingjing became slightly flustered. As for Jiang Shuo, he creased his brows, then showed a faintly complacent smile.
"I decided to eat here when I was passing by, and still need to return to work later. I never expected that I would so coincidentally bump into you and your family here." Yang Chen directly pretended as if he couldn’t see Jiang Shuo.
"Why not eat with us, there’s no point eating alone, we haven’t had a meal together in a long time, this is a rare opportunity." Old Li suggested.
Aunt Li who stood behind immediately showed disapproval all over her face, pondered for a moment, then dragged Li Jingjing forward, she said in a cold manner, "Little Yang still has to go to work later, we’re here to discuss important things for Jingjing and Jiang Shuo, it will take up a lot of time. Old man, if you want to drink, you can specifically call Little Yang out another time."
Important business between Li Jingjing and Jiang Shuo?
Yang Chen was stunned, he looked towards Li Jingjing, and the girl first blushed, then paled, but she refused to speak. She lowered her head, so he had no idea what was on her mind.
Yang Chen felt a little depressed inside, could it be that during the period he hadn’t met Li Jingjing she had become a couple with Jiang Shuo?
"Oh yes, although I’ve only met Brother Yang once, I welcome Brother Yang to come eat with us. But as we have important things to discuss today, I’m afraid we will hold Brother Yang up from going to work. Uncle, how about you invite Brother Yang to a meal another time, we can choose a nicer place for a gathering then." Jiang Shuo genially said to curry favor.
Old Li had been a peddler all his life, and had to depend on his daughter as he aged. Now that the son of the chief of the department of education came to curry favor with him, he felt a little like he was on cloud nine. Thinking for a bit, it made sense that Yang Chen shouldn’t be involved when they discussed something as important as family matters, in addition to that, it would be awkward, so he nodded, "Alright then, Little Yang, I guess we can’t today, I’ll treat you to a meal another time."
Yang Chen didn’t mind and smiled, "No worries, I’ll be leaving soon, since you’ve got important business to deal with, don’t mind me."
"See? Little Yang is a man who stands to reason." Said Aunt Li as she beamed with joy.
Jiang Shuo provocatively glanced at Yang Chen with disdain, it was obvious that with Li Jingjing’s family siding with him in front of Yang Chen, Jiang Shuo felt as if he had finally washed off the humiliation he received from Yang Chen at Heavenly Province KTV that day as he softly snorted in pleasure.
You think you’re a big deal driving a BMW? The woman I want still belongs to me anyway. Jiang Shuo was incredibly joyful inside. He looked at Li Jingjing, who remained silent like a beautiful orchid with greed and eagerness.
Under Aunt Li’s urging, the four quickly followed the waitress into a room they booked beforehand, leaving Yang Chen all alone by the wall. He was alone from the very beginning though.
From start to end, Li Jingjing never glanced straight at Yang Chen, this left a bad taste in Yang Chen’s mouth.
