Chapter 237: Begging for Forgiveness With an Injury
Translator: TYZ Editor: Book_Hoarder
Upon arriving at the other world, Ren Baqian suddenly felt that he had forgotten something. He furrowed his eyebrows and racked his brain. What did he forget about?
The next moment, he kneeled on the ground.
Erhu? Where's the erhu? Where's the erhu? A stupefied look appeared upon Ren Baqian's face. How could he forget about the erhu again?
Why did he forget about the erhu every time he returned to Earth? Was it destined?
God, why aren't you blessing me?!
Ren Baqian raised his head and let out a deep sigh. A look of agony rose upon his face.
There was no point in sighing now. He had to come up with an explanation for the empress so that she wouldn't pursue this matter.
Even though the empress would not really kill him, she would still be willing to mete out punishments such as making him kneel on glass fragments. Or would she punish by making him train every day? Or maybe she might make him spar with her?
What should I do?
Ren Baqian paced up and down his room but still couldn't come up with any good solutions.
Should I apologize and ask for punishment? Wait, this is not my style.
Even if he did apologize and ask for punishment, the empress would merely sneer at him. Then, she would team up with the Lolita and beat the hell out of him.
The main thing was the empress would think that he did not care about what she said. He did remind himself to get it before he returned to Earth. Unfortunately, he completely forgot about it when he arrived on Earth.
A look of agony appeared upon Ren Baqian's face. It seemed like he had to resort to the last method, which was, begging for forgiveness with an injury.
"Knife knife Is there a fruit knife or something?" Ren Baqian rummaged through his room. To his surprise, he realized he did not bring any sort of knife or dagger from Earth to this world. He had a handgun, a rifle, and a grenade. However, these things weren't useful for him to beg for the empress's forgiveness with an injury.
Eventually, Ren Baqian found a short saber in his room. Immediately, his eyes lit up. Following which, however, a constipated look appeared upon his face.
This saber was given by the husband of the wife whom he had saved using the condom method at the Chen Medicinal Shop previously.
The problem was this saber was too thick. Wrong, it was too wide.
Even though this was a short saber, it was much wider than a normal dagger. There was even rust on it.
Ren Baqian felt that he rather get beaten up by the empress than stab himself with this knife.
However, he had already forgotten to bring an erhu back many times. How could he forget about it again this time? He felt guilty for it as well.
Forget it, I will beg for her forgiveness with an injury. The pain will last for only a while. With the black mud cream, I will be as good as new in an hour's time.
A true man should be decisive and ruthless.
Upon thinking of this, Ren Baqian clenched his teeth. Then, he unsheathed the saber and brandished it around his arm. Following which, he slashed his arm with the saber. Instantly, a slanted open wound that was half an inch deep appeared on his arm. Blood spurted out and flowed down his hand.
Ren Baqian grimaced in pain with beads of perspiration dripping down his forehead.
Looking at the wound on his arm, Ren Baqian decided to go all out. Following which, he swiped the saber across his chest.
"Luckily this saber is short in length. If it is longer, I would be blinded by it." Ren Baqian's forehead broke out in cold sweat. His entire body was drenched in blood now.
"Argh!" Ren Baqian suddenly yelled out in pain.
He stared at the saber in his hand with his eyes wide open like a pair of bells.
The short saber had transformed into a long one that was roughly one meter in length.
Just now, the saber was only roughly thirty centimeters in length. At the instance where he thought to himself "If it is longer, I would be blinded by it," it became one meter in length and pierced through his arm.
Is this a Compliant Golden-Hooped saber? Ren Baqian thought to himself with his eyes widened. Following which, a wave of lingering fear swept across his mind. If he was pointing the sword at his chest just now, he would be dead.
[The Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod is a magical staff wielded by the immortal monkey Sun Wukong in the 16th-century classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. The length and size of the staff complies with his wishes.]
A sharp pain surged through his arm.
"Goddammit." Ren Baqian clenched his teeth and pulled the sword out from his arm. Blood instantly gushed out of the wound.
Ren Baqian looked at the saber in his hand. One second later, he decided to hide the sword first. His number one priority now was to find the empress to save him.
He could study this saber again in the future.
After hiding the saber under the blanket, Ren Baqian called the empress through the walkie-talkie with his lips trembling.
10 seconds had passed 20 seconds had passed 1 minute had passed...
Ren Baqian looked at the color of the sky. It's still daytime, why isn't the walkie-talkie by your side?
"Will I bleed to death?" When Ren Baqian thought of this, he shuddered in fear. Immediately, he pushed open the door and ran out to seek help from the imperial guards.
When the imperial guards saw Ren Baqian ran out his room drenched in blood, they were scared out of their wits.
Everyone know how much the empress loved this man. If anything happened to him, the outcome would be unthinkable.
"Your Majesty, for some unknown reason, Deputy Prefect Ren is riddled with injuries. The imperial guards have already sent for a doctor."
Inside the palace hall, the empress soaked in a pool of clear water with her eyes closed lightly. At this moment, Hong Luan's voice resounded through the air.
The empress opened her eyes abruptly. According to the time now, Ren Baqian should be back from Earth now, right? Something happened to him?
The next instance, a spotlessly white figure appeared beside the pool. Like a piece of cloud, a piece of white-colored undergarment engulfed her. Following which, she put on a red dress and disappeared from the palace hall.
When Hong Luan saw the empress disappear from the palace hall, she sighed deeply.
Her Majesty cares about that man too much.
She had never treated anyone like that before.
When the empress arrived at Pingle Park, the doctor had yet to arrive. The imperial guards were cleaning Ren Baqian's wounds.
"What happened?" the empress asked while furrowing her eyebrows. Her body was completely engulfed in an aura of death.
"Your Majesty, it's a long story, I will tell you later." Ren Baqian's face was pale-white and his forehead beaded with sweat.
His wounds felt more painful than just now, making him tremble in cold.
Soon after, the doctor finally arrived. Immediately, he checked on Ren Baqian wounds. The lacerations on his chest and arm weren't severe, they merely looked intimidating.
It was only the deep stab on his arm that was severe. It had slightly injured his bone.
The doctor left after applying the black mud cream on Ren Baqian's wounds and bandaging them.
After the imperial guards also left, Ren Baqian began to talk with trembling lips. Just now, his wounds felt extremely painful. Now, they were feeling painful and itchy at the same time.
Since the black mud cream allowed one's injuries to heal quickly, it caused utter itchiness.
"Your Majesty, while I was on my way to buying some stuff, two men suddenly appeared and hacked me with choppers. From their skills, they did not seem like ordinary robbers. Even though I tried my best to resist them, I still wasn't their match. When I saw that things weren't going too well, I immediately returned to this world," Ren Baqian said.
"Who did it? I am going to kill all of their family members." The empress knitted her eyebrows.
"Your Majesty, thank you so much but I don't know who I have offended, I will look into it when I go back to Earth," Ren Baqian quickly said.
"I didn't expect this kind of thing would happen in your world too," the empress said.
"Where there are people, there is trouble. Sometimes, one doesn't even know who he or she has offended and gets targeted and harmed by people. It has always been this way since the ancient times." Ren Baqian had a sagacious look on his face.
The empress thought deeply about the line "Where there are people, there is trouble".
"Now, Great Xia has viewed you as a thorn in their flesh and there are people in your world that are targeting you. You better work harder in learning the [Boxing of Death], I will be supervising you. We will increase your training duration and sparring session by two hours every day," the empress said after thinking about it.
