The Human Emperor Chapter 333
Chapter 333: Red Eyed
Chapter 333: Red-Eyed!
"We are currently on the fourth day of our mission. Counting from the first day, I have already cleared four bandit bands cleanly, and not a single one of them has gotten away under my eye. According to the orders we received, I should have cleared the first stage of the mission already. In other words, unless we receive new orders, I have the right to choose whether I want to continue hunting down the bandits or not.
Wang Chong raised a middle finger as he said those words calmly.
These bastards were clearly trying to take advantage of him! Whatever! They wouldn't understand the meaning of his gesture anyway!
Huang Yongtu's expression froze after hearing those words. Thinking back, Wang Chong had succeeded in every hunt ever since the first day, and according to the details of their mission, he had already accomplished the requirements for the first stage.
All of the words that Huang Yongtu had prepared beforehand suddenly became meaningless.
"Damn it!" Huang Yongtu clenched his fists in hate.
"If there's nothing else, I would like to ask you to leave this area. I wish to take my rest." Adjusting his posture to rest comfortable against the tree, Wang Chong flicked his hand as if he was chasing away a fly.
Despite his rage, there was not a single thing Huang Yongtu could say under this circumstance. Thus, he could only walk away angrily.
Xu Gan opened his mouth to speak, but hesitated eventually, before closing it. There was no idea he could offer at the moment, either.
In the ensuing days, Huang Yongtu, Xu Gan, and Bai Siling continued to struggle to accomplish their mission.
On the other hand, Wang Chong was visibly much more relaxed. If he was in the mood, he might choose to clear away some bandits along the way. Otherwise, he would just take the day off.
Since the royal court hadn't passed down the second part of the mission, Wang Chong was also glad to enjoy the peace he got.
In the forest, Ma Song suddenly spoke as he sneaked a glance backward. "Lord, their men are here again!" Within the shadows, one could vaguely see several human silhouettes.
Initially, Xu Gan and Huang Yongtu were still a little hesitant, sending only a man at a time in fear of being noticed. But their reservations gradually faded with time, so the number of men they sent was steadily on the rise.
For example, there were a few who knew that they had been noticed, so they chose to step out from their hiding spots and observe the situation from behind openly.
"This woman!" Wang Chong shook his head helplessly. Xu Gan and Huang Yongtu were still holding onto their pride, so the only one who would possibly have her men observe him so openly could only be Bai Siling.
