Over 10 men in black surrounded Xiong Ben. The man leading them was a top-notch martial master.
Although Xiong Ben was already a martial master, he was still far from being a top-notch martial master. Furthermore, this top-notch martial master had many people by his side.
“Xiong Ben, you should know that your fit of rage caused thousands of dire beasts to surround Fei’xue City!”
The top-notch martial master pointed at Xiong Ben as he chastised him. “You kicked the hornet’s nest and then walked away. What sort of man are you? I think you are just a coward.”
Xiong Ben held up his combat knife and rebutted indignantly, “What do you think I should have done?”
“You should have taken responsibility for this!” The top-notch martial master raised his voice.
Xiong Ben felt a wave of anger rush over him. Before he could say anything to vent though, he heard someone ask loudly, “Are you asking him to go die?”
The man’s words were straight to the point.
Xiong Ben felt a tear flow out the moment he heard this. Although there didn’t seem to be anything wrong with the martial master’s words, he was actually asking Xiong Ben to go and die.
“Who uttered this nonsense?” The martial master glanced angrily in the direction the sound had come from.
“Me! Me! Me!”
Voices rang out as over 10 men appeared. Some of them were wearing Rising Dragon Army uniforms, others Grand Sky Military uniforms, and the rest Royal Forest Military uniforms.
However, none of them seemed to have kind intentions.
“This matter has nothing to do with the likes of you,” the top-notch martial master said icily. “Just get lost! Otherwise, I will detain every single one of you and get your commanders to take you away.”
No one uttered a single word, yet nobody backed off either. Meanwhile, the number of the soldiers around them increased.
100, 200, 300
In just a flash, over 1,000 people had already gathered. Although these soldiers didn’t say anything, their red eyes seemed to show their intentions.
Even though top-notch martial masters were powerful, they couldn’t take on 1,000 foes like martial grandmasters. Furthermore, there were even some top-notch martial masters among the soldiers that he was facing.
“What are you trying to do? Is this a revolt? Listen to me, we have been ordered by the Da Alliance to capture a fugitive. All of you”
The top-notch martial master hadn’t finished speaking, when someone shouted, “F*ck yourself, you piece of trash!”
If someone had dared say this sort of thing to the top-notch martial master at any other time, he would have definitely killed them.
However, his heart began to tremble as he faced so many soldiers with unkind intentions. He knew that even one sentence could provoke them. If he got into a scuffle with this group, he would be the one who would die.
Therefore, in the end, he only opened his mouth without saying anything.
“What are you people trying to do?” A middle-aged man stepped forward and spoke in a placid tone. When the top-notch martial master saw this man, he relaxed a little.
“Duwei” The martial master saluted the middle-aged man.
“There’s no need to salute me!” the middle-aged man said as he turned his gaze to Xiong Ben. “I admit that you aren’t in the wrong here, Xiong Ben!”
Xiong Ben felt his heart warm up when he heard this. He might have been supported by soldiers of the various armies after killing the evil one-eyed wolf that had tried to attack his sister, but not a single officer had spoken up for him.
“However, the entire Fei’xue City has been surrounded by dire beasts. The 13 Eastern Cities are also in a nervous state. Many people will have to die because of your actions.”
The man’s expression suddenly became extremely grave as he arched his back and bowed before Xiong Ben. “You are a good man, so I hope that you will do what a man ought to do. Don’t be a coward!”
Xiong Ben was dumbfounded when he heard this. He glanced at his angry compatriots all around him and then looked at the unmoving middle-aged man still bowing in front of him. He felt as though an insurmountable pressure was suddenly crushing him.
This pressure made him feel like there was no way out. He didn’t have any other choice.
The combat knife in his hands felt as though it weighed 1,000 tons right now. He had no choice.
Xiong Ben gently placed the knife on his neck with a helpless look in his eyes. Then, he opened his mouth and said softly, “Can you guarantee the safety of my family?”
“Yes, I can,” the middle-aged man said gravely.
Xiong Ben said nothing else. As he looked at all the compatriots that he didn’t recognize, a warm feeling filled his heart.
“I’ll be leaving first, thank you!”
“He is deceiving you!” A placid voice was suddenly heard. Although it wasn’t loud, everyone still heard it.
Xiong Ben’s hand, which had been about to move, halted. The bowed middle-aged man stood up right away.
The top-notch martial master standing beside this man had a guarded look on his face as he glanced in the direction the voice had come from.
The top-notch martial master, who understood the intentions of the middle-aged man, felt angry. The problem that had been about to be solved was ruined by these words.
“Why haven’t you grown a brain yet?” That tranquil voice was heard once again. This time, the person speaking had appeared before Xiong Ben.
Xiong Ben felt his heart quiver when he saw this figure. He had never expected that this god-like individual would actually remember him.
He recalled what this fellow had said to him before they had parted. He had advised him to use his head more and not be so easily swayed by what others said.
He had always remembered these words, but he had presumed that this person, whose cultivation base had soared at breakneck speed, would have long forgotten them.
He had never imagined that he would say the exact same words when they met again.
The middle-aged man’s expression changed when he saw this man. He immediately bent his back respectfully and said, “Greetings, Mr. Luo!”
Luo Yunyang paid no heed to the middle-aged man. Instead, he kept speaking to Xiong Ben. “Not bad Your cultivation base has improved considerably. Seems like you have worked hard. Perhaps you could even become a martial grandmaster at some point.”
Although Luo Yunyang had ignored him, the middle-aged man didn’t dare complain. The gulf between them was too big after all.
“I have caused trouble this time!” When Xiong Ben met Luo Yunyang’s gaze, he felt that he had a lot to say. However, all he could manage to say was this.
Xiong Ben immediately felt disgraceful. As he tried to rack his brains about something to say, Luo Yunyang said, “You only killed a wild beast. You should be given credit for it instead.”
“Luo Luo” Xiong Ben’s mouth was wide open. He just didn’t know what to say.
“Mr. Luo, we have always had friendly relations with the Silver Wolf’s third son. He is actually someone we have been trying to win over. This man publicly killed the attendant of the Silver Wolf’s third son, so if we don’t give a proper explanation” The middle-aged man rubbed his palms as he spoke in a low voice.
Luo Yunyang glanced disdainfully at the grave middle-aged man. His mind power had already sensed exactly what had happened. “Why don’t you talk about the crimes they have committed?”
“Mr. Luo, this this is not a big deal. Compared to our survival, such matters are”
Luo Yunyang waved his hands dismissively, sending the middle-aged man flying. “Not a big deal? He he You are so eloquent. Let me tell you something. Survival can only be achieved by sacrificing one’s blood. Wagging tails and begging for pity is of absolutely no use!”
“Well-said!” a soldier who was clearly moved shouted.
Over 1,000 soldiers suddenly shouted loudly as they gazed reverently at Luo Yunyang.
“You are right, Yunyang. I’m a little dumb, so I nearly got conned by this fellow!” Xiong Ben, who seemed to have regained his carefree nature, told Luo Yunyang.
Luo Yunyang slapped Xiong Ben across the back. “At least you know now.”
A gorgeous platform had been speedily constructed outside Fei’xue City. All sorts of exquisite fruits were displayed on plates made of silver and gold, making the whole thing seem really luxurious.
“Come on, this is what humans hide in their cellars 100-year-old wine tastes really good. Let’s make a toast!” said a young man who seemed to be in his 20s. He had a skinny body that wasn’t much different from an ordinary human’s, yet his ears were silver wolf ears.
Over 10 men and women were at this banquet that was organized according to human customs. In terms of human standards, this group looked decent. There were even a few people that could be considered good-looking.
However, the majority of them retained some distinguishable mark of their races. After a toast, a man with a pair of black wings said, “We have to really teach those humans a lesson this time.”
“How dare they kill a servant of ours! When one beats a dog, one must answer to its master! Get them to compensate us with 10,000 lives. Only when enough blood flows will they prostrate on the ground and become our slaves.”
“Black Eagle is right,” a person with a silver lion head said. “There are people who are unsatisfied with us among this restless bunch. They definitely have to be taught a lesson.”
“A human even dared challenge us to a Race Blood Battle. He must be a king-level powerhouse. If we blow things out of proportion, maybe” The person speaking was a woman with a silver horn growing out of her head.
When he noticed her worry, the host of the banquet chuckled. “At first, I was also worried about provoking the strongest human fighters. However, I later found out that the reason this man challenged us was because he had no choice. Now that we have appeared, we have given him a chance of surviving. He better come out soon and throw himself at the feet of the Great Emperor Lords!”
The silver-eared man laughed. “I’m more knowledgeable than you when it comes to dealing with slaves. Let us drink first. Then, we’ll set the city on fire. I believe that will be a very pretty sight!”
