Chapter 159 The warriors return
Ah? Jin Feng Lie suddenly stood up despite his injuries What do you mean by that?
What do I mean? Brother Jin, you need not be present in the woods when I confront the man. Hai Chen Feng turned away and sighed: I will deal with this man in black alone!
If youre there and you watch me lose, then wouldnt you recklessly jump in to save me? It is completely unnecessary to increase the number of causalities.
Whether I defeat him or die trying, its better that you dont witness either.this is the least that I can do after so many years of friendship to save you.
Once Hai Chen Feng was finished speaking, he turned around to face the wall and sat down cross-legged, unwilling to speak any further.
Brother Hai Jin Feng Lie cried out as a sudden and heavy feeling clogged his heart. His mind was crowded with concerns about his friends safety: was involving Brother Hai a bad thing? Is Brother Hais life in danger? Brother Hai has always been very confident about himself. Ive never seen him worry like this before. I think everything will be fine once he gets his confidence back! Brother Hai has never ever failed at any task before!
Since Hai Chen Feng didnt seem interested in any further conversations, Jin Feng Lie sighed in a low voice and then exited the room.
Jun Mo Xie sensed a difference in the aura around his courtyard, so he put on his robes and stepped out into his courtyard under the twilight sky.
Jun Mo Xies small courtyard was at present housing over two hundred men, who were neatly organized in lines. They stood up straight as soon as they saw Jun Mo Xie, brushed their uniforms, and shouted in unison: Master, weve returned!
Jun Mo Xie smiled in return. His eyes scanned each and every one of the men in his courtyard, and then inwardly nodded in approval. The incompetence of these men had been completely annihilated by the training they had undergone, and these originally useless soldiers had now turned into iron-blooded warriors with the blood thirst of an unrestrained beast.
Whats the report? Jun Mo Xie asked with a smile.
The report, Master, is this; twenty seven men dropped out of the training, nineteen lost their lives, making our total downsizing of forty six, while the remaining two hundred and fifty four men stand here in front of you! One hundred and thirty people broke into the ninth layer, eighty four men advanced to the Silver Xuan, while another thirty six men advanced to the peak of the Silver Xuan realm. A total of four men have already made it to the Gold Xuan! Also, we hunted down all the Beasts that we were required to, young master! one of the men stepped out from the ranks and debriefed Jun Mo Xie. The mans voice was clearly expressing his excitement! These people seemed very happy and proud of their progress!
Very good! Jun Mo Xie praised approvingly: You all have done a lot better than I expected. Can everyone feel that change in their bodies?
Jun Mo Xies sentence left the entire lot laughing in embarrassment as they recalled their days in the forest, and the times when they didnt even have enough food to eat who could have ever imagined that they would return victorious, and the suicide training mission that their young master had sent them on would force out their skills! The strength of these men had more than doubled over the course of their training!
Remember, youve only managed to achieve this result because you pushed yourself to the limits! Pushing oneself is the only way to tap into the infinite potential of the human body! Even cowards can become warriors! But if you stop pushing yourself, then your body will start decaying, and the warrior inside you will transform into a coward!
Jun Mo Xie continued in a loud voice: You have made excellent progress and it is your right to celebrate, but let me tell you that youve only taken your first step. Even the best of you has only reached the Gold Xuan, whats the value of that in this world? Theres still Jade Xuan, Earth Xuan, Sky Xuan and then the Supreme Xuan realms left! Theres a long way to go, and I find it very strange that you havent realized that yet always keep your eyes and ears open and one day you may be able to attain the Supreme Xuan realm as well! Theres still a long way for you all to go, but haste makes waste, and you need not look too far now. Just keep pushing yourself everyday one step at a time, and unknowingly one day youll realize that youve achieved the heights you could never even have dreamt about!
Yes! We honor and respect the young masters instructions! everyone replied in unison.
Before accepting the training mission, these men didnt really think very highly of Jun Mo Xie. But these men were alarmed to realize that Jun Mo Xies instructions had helped them in avoiding several life threatening situations inside the forest, owing to which these two hundred and fifty four men were convinced of Jun Mo Xies leadership qualities and foresight.
You must go and report to third uncle, and he will assign you to your tasks. Jun Mo Xie waved his hand.
Master.. several of the men stepped forward in excitement: We know that we dont deserve it, but.. Master can you allow us to follow . You?
Third Uncle will make the decisions. Jun Mo Xie smiled since he knew that Jun Wu Yi would assign these men back to him. The uncle and nephew duo had a very clear tacit understanding in this respect!
Tang Yuans snoring was loud enough to shake the very foundations of the Jun residence, and occasionally hed even scream out: ah. My ass in paining..!! Everyone preferred his snoring over his complaining.
The Sun had just risen in the sky when Jun Wu Yi rolled out in his wheelchair and came into Jun Mo Xies courtyard. Jun Wu Yi could sense that Jun Mo Xies courtyard seemed a bit different again, almost as if the already sunk ground level was missing a chip now!
It was a lot harder for Jun Wu Yi to manipulate his wheelchair these days since he had gotten used to walking around on his own two feet during the night time. But he still enjoyed sitting in his wheelchair since it gave him a very solid alibi for all his covert operations.
You assign them work. Jun Wu Yi said: Im very busy at the moment.
Busy killing people? Jun Mo Xies keen sense of perception sensed the taste of a very familiar feeling coming out of his uncles body: Uncle, youre becoming very selfish you actually went out alone for a party.. why didnt you invite me along?
Jun Wu Yi hesitated as he looked up, but couldnt help a laugh: I came back, took a bath and changed my clothes. But the little devil you are. You still figured it out.
Killing isnt just a manual labor; its a job which requires a lot of mental strength as well. Jun Mo Xie smiled interestingly: Those who kill people, do it out of anger or sadness or hatred, which evokes an outrage in their minds at the time of the deed. Therefore, once youve killed a person and dismembered their body, your mind also loses its focus and purpose. After killing someone, the hostility of that viciousness continues to linger within ones temperament, and the killer tends to become socially elusive and odd; even a war general is no exception to this.
This is one of the reasons why most people are unable to progress very far in their lives! Jun Mo Xie smiled coldly: So after killing people, it is very important to clean up your mind as quickly as possible, by doing something that you enjoy. This is necessary to relax and loosen up your mind, or else youll never rid yourself of that hostility and youll eventually lose your mind. Drinking is always a good way to do just that, which is why most warriors are alcoholics; in fact this is the main reason why most military men drink!
Therefore, just taking a bath isnt enough, Uncle. Jun Mo Xie winked: However, I dont think that a lot of people will be able to tell this apart from me, so you neednt worry about it ha ha ha.
Jun Wu Yi blushed with embarrassment since he had never even imagined that Jun Mo Xie would catch his lie: Now even toddlers have the audacity to tease an old man like me!
Jun Mo Xie looked up skywards: Uncle, youll have to get me an aunt before you go about calling yourself an old man!
Even though these words were only meant as a joke, they had a base in reality as well. Even though Jun Wu Yi had been crippled for over a decade, his Xuan Qi had never slacked off, which reflected on his face, and even though he was in his thirties, he didnt look any older than mid-twenties. His young looks coupled with his middle-aged demeanor made his personality and appearance very contrasting.
And now hes also suddenly claiming to be an old man? Whats wrong with this world!
Jun Wu Yi was speechless: And why would I need to do that?. When the youngest generation of the house starts maturing, the previous one automatically becomes old..
So according to that, if and when I have nieces and nephews as old as I am at the moment, I should also be calling myself an old man? Jun Mo Xie deliberately asked this with difficulty: But Im only sixteen years old!
Of course. Jun Wu Yi replied sternly.
What kind of a justification is that. this world is going crazy!
Jun Mo Xie practically collapsed to the ground. Hows being uncle to a sixteen year old a valid reason for being old??? God, let me die now. I cant take this anymore!
Youve nothing important today, right? Jun Wu Yi smiled gently: Remember to come back early in the evening today, we have guests and we need to entertain them by hosting a feast tonight.
Uncle, why are they here? Jun Mo Xie took the opportunity to ask his question.
Given then current situation, they shouldnt be here for more than two reasons. One is obviously the Xuan Core; and secondly, they are here to fetch your sister-in-law, which they have already conveyed.
Jun Wu Yi brandished a faint smile: Qing Han has been staying with us for several years now, which has been greatly detrimental to her reputation, so if shes decided to return to her home, then the Jun Family must compensate her in whichever way possible. For example, telling the world that shes going back by her own free will and hasnt been abandoned by us for any reason!
The Xuan Core situation is difficult to assess, so well have to put that aside for now. As for sister-in-laws return, Im afraid that its not that simple either. Theyve only been conveying their interest of taking her back verbally all these years, so why have they showed up here in the middle of all this fanfare? Third Uncle, doesnt something seem a bit fishy? And theres the perspective of sister-in-laws identity and happiness. She chose to be a part of the Jun Family, and has been so all these years.. wouldnt this be a mockery to our name and her decision?! Jun Mo Xie skeptically analyzed the issues.
