Ren Baqian had a bewildered look on his face. He did not understand what the man was saying. When the man saw that Ren Baqian did not have any reaction, he became fiercer than before.
At the same time, another man walked towards them and reached out his hand to pull the empress into an alley beside them. Before he even touched her, his body flew into the air. While he was in the air, he puked out his shattered internal organs.
A vicious look flashed across the face of the bald man standing behind Ren Baqian and he thrusted the dagger in his hand forward. He expected his dagger to plunge into Ren Baqian's flesh. However, the next moment he realized that his hand couldn't move, appearing as though the dagger was caught by something.
He did not know when the empress had gotten a hold of his dagger. She wrung the dagger around and thrusted the dagger into the bald man's stomach.
Following which, the empress gave the bald man a slap on his face. All his brain matter immediately spurted out from his nose, mouth, and ears.
By the time Ren Baqian returned to his senses, everything had been settled.
Ren Baqian looked at dead bald man and then shifted his gaze to the calm empress. Following which, he covered his face with both his hands in sorrow.
This was the first city they arrived in after escaping from China. He had not even gotten a good look at this city, and they were going to become fugitives again.
He couldn't lead a peaceful life these days.
With an eye peeking out of his hands, Ren Baqian scanned his surroundings. To his surprise, there weren't many people around them. He could only see a few figures in the distance. There was also car driving towards them from a distance. However, Ren Baqian reckoned that its driver and passengers would not be able to see anything.
After all, this wasn't China. In China, even in a small county town, everyone would come out onto the streets at night. This place was much more cheerless and colder than China.
Ren Baqian was overjoyed. "Zixiao, drag their bodies into the alley. Otherwise, we are going to become fugitives again."
The empress glared at Ren Baqian. She was unhappy with Ren Baqian for ordering her around. However, she still pulled the person whom she kicked into the air into the alley in a flash. Ren Baqian also dragged the bald man's body into the alley.
Nobody would take notice of such a dark and secluded corner. This made Ren Baqian feel much more at ease.
Ren Baqian then took their money from their wallets. The money they had in total was approximately 3000 rubles. Ren Baqian did not know the exchange rate between Chinese yuan and Russia ruble. He also did not know the prices of commodities here and whether or not this amount of money would allow them to have a meal. However, he still took the money. He had brought 20000 yuan with him, but he hadn't yet gotten the chance to exchange them for rubles.
Then, he asked the empress to bring the two dead bodies to the rooftop. Meanwhile, he stood in the alley and checked his surroundings. There weren't any surveillance cameras in the area, and no one saw what happened just now. It was truly a blessing.
The bloodstains left by the bald man's corpse when he was dragged into the alley were still on the ground. However, it would take two or three days before anyone found their bodies on the rooftop. By then, he and the empress would have already left.
Ren Baqian turned around and looked at the empress. The empress's eyes were bright and limpid.
Initially, Ren Baqian wanted to tell her not to act rashly. However, when he recalled that the bald man wanted to kill him with the dagger, he put off the idea and let her be.
Previously in China or Turkey, the empress had never resorted to violence recklessly. Ren Baqian reckoned that she probably knew what she should be doing.
"Are you cold?" Ren Baqian asked. Right now, it was already July and it was summer. Even though the temperature at night wouldn't drop below 20 degrees Celsius, Ren Baqian could feel chilliness creeping into his body.
As for the empress, this temperature wouldn't affect her much. However, Ren Baqian still asked her this question. After all, the empress helped him kill his enemies and accompanied him on the run. As such, he felt somewhat guilty about it.
The empress turned around and looked at Ren Baqian. Her eyes looked exceptionally beautiful and bright in the night. They reminded Ren Baqian of the stars in the night sky.
"Where shall we go next?" the empress asked.
"We will go find some food first." Ren Baqian touched his pocket and found out that he did not have much money left. He did not know whether or not the restaurants here accepted yuan.
They found a roadside restaurant and ordered some Russian stewed meat and baked potatoes. They also ordered a bottle of Vodka. It tasted slightly weird to Ren Baqian as he seldom drank it. On the contrary, the empress liked it very much.
After eating this meal, they were left with only 200 rubles. This amount of money was not even enough for them to find some lodging.
Furthermore, the empress wasn't full yet. When Ren Baqian tried to use renminbi to book a room, he was turned down. This made him feel rather helpless.
"Maybe we should rob someone or a shop," Ren Baqian thought to himself.
This was just a passing thought, and in the end Ren Baqian did not act upon it. Ren Baqian felt that he still had to follow some moral guidelines.
The pair spent the night beside the river. The next morning, they headed to the bank to exchange their renminbis for rubles. Afterwards, they found some lodging and rested for a day. At night, they left the city and found a secluded area to teleport to Dayao.
Three days after the both of them had left, three men came to this city for investigation. After all, the empress's facial appearance and red dress made her very recognizable. The three persons easily obtained the news of Ren Baqian and the empress. They also noticed a bizarre murder case involving two men. One men looked as though he was hit by a car, having all his internal organs shattered to smithereens. The other man looked normal, but his head received some major trauma, causing all his brain matter to spurt out from his orifices.
The weird thing was, the two men's bodies were found on the rooftop while their internal organs were found on the road at the ground level. There were traces of the two men being dragged into the alley as well. Until now, it was still unknown how the two men's bodies ended up on the rooftop or how they died.
The news of this bizarre murder case spread throughout this small city and became many people's topic of idle conversation during their free time.
When the three persons knew of how the three men died, they immediately thought of the guy named Jin Wu who had died a few days ago. His dead body was embedded in the wall. The ways that Jin Wu and the two men were killed were completely different, but they had something in common, that was, they could not be achieved by a normal human being.
After reporting to their higher-ups, the three of them headed towards the direction where Ren Baqian and the empress had left to.
They passed by the area where Ren Baqian and the empress had disappeared and continued forward. Soon after, they realized they couldn't find any more traces of them. It was as though the both of them had vanished into thin air.
When Ren Baqian saw Yangxin Palace Hall appearing before his eyes, he felt as though he had returned home.
Nowadays, even he did not know whether Earth or Dayao was his home.
Especially after he became a fugitive on Earth.
"Your Majesty, sorry to have troubled you these days," Ren Baqian turned around and apologized softly.
In a flash, the empress appeared on her couch. Following which, she stretched her body, revealing her perfect figure clearly. Then, she cast a ferocious stare at Ren Baqian before saying, "All of them are like chickens that can be killed in passing, so how is that considered troubling me?"
Indeed, the empress's strength made her look like a god on Earth. There was nothing she was scared of.
Ren Baqian casually sat down on a seat beneath the empress. Curling up his legs, he asked the empress curiously, "Your Majesty, do you feel like a god on Earth? Everything on Earth is like an ant to you. You can destroy anything and anyone with a flip of your hand."
"Oh!" Upon hearing Ren Baqian's words, the empress went into a deep thought. After a long while, she replied, "Like what you said, all of us are specialized in different things. To you, aboriginals are very powerful. To me, we are no different from you and your fellow Earthlings. However, there are still many things on Earth that I'm interested in. I also agree with the statement 'Knowledge is power'."
Hearing the empress's words, Ren Baqian chuckled. The empress was much more sober than he expected. Initially, he thought that she would have this idea after going to Earth and coming in contact with powerless Earthlings so many times.
If he was the empress and he possessed the strength to destroy anything and anyone with a flip of his hand, he might become so domineering that he wouldn't even recognize himself.
In the past, he wouldn't have dared to do the things he did recently.
Now, not only did he do these things, he also did not feel guilty doing them at all.
He merely felt sad for not being able to go home and living the life of a fugitive.
He remembered a line from a movie: "With great power comes great responsibility."
This line had made someone into a superhero. However, he begged to differ with this line. For him, it was "With great power comes little responsibility".
