Chapter 285: Clearing Out a Bloody Path (Part two)
(Disclaimer: The following chapter may contain a bit of the nation feud from the past, let’s look past the author’s patriotism and enjoy the story instead.)
Xu Cheng pulled out the dagger and kept going, and just like that, without the need for any fancy techniques, he would disable all attacks coming at him, with fingers and blood flying everywhere.
A guard tried to sneak-attack Xu Cheng and kicked towards his crotch. Xu Cheng suddenly tightened his thighs, clamping onto the leg. Then, with a twist and roll sideways, he directly broke that leg!
The scene sent chills down everyone’s spines, especially the Queen. Being this old, she hadn’t seen a scene this bloody yet. She didn’t expect that this guy would fight this well, and at this point, there were already over 40 people on the ground. Xu Cheng was already halfway out of the palace, leaving behind a trail of blood wherever he walked past.
With more and more people gathering around, some people managed to leave cuts on Xu Cheng, and Xu Cheng took in a deep breath due to the pain. He grabbed a guy that had jumped onto him and was about to claw his eye out, and threw him over the shoulder. Then, he stomped on that guy’s face, and with a loud crack, that guy’s nose was broken too.
Now, blood began seeping through his clothes.
“Hit his wounds! He doesn’t get hurt from punches and kicks!” Someone realized this and exclaimed, and the others just realized that there was a cut on Xu Cheng’s shoulder that was seeping blood. They all charged over like a bunch of sharks smelling blood.
Xu Cheng immediately grabbed and lifted two guards that charged at him and roared as he banged their heads into the ground.
The floor tiles even began to crack.
Against all the punches and kicks, Xu Cheng blocked with one arm as he struck back with his dagger. The scent of blood was all up in the air.
On the passage outside of the palace towards the gate, there were cries of pain and misery sounding out with every step. Out of the palace door behind Xu Cheng, there were over 60 guards laying or rolling in pain on the ground. Some had broken faces, some had broken limbs, and some had dislocated arms and legs that were just swinging freely. The entire scene was brutal to see.
It would be a lie if someone at the scene said they weren’t scared. Xu Cheng’s means and cruelty completely shocked them all, and an intense sense of fear permeated them.
He was getting closer and closer to the gate, and seeing how he massacred their peers that stood in his path, the ones left were shocked and terrified. It was the kind of fear that struck into the depths of their hearts.
When Xu Cheng took care another 13 guards, his face was already covered in blood. He panted crazily as he shouted at the 10 guards guarding the gate, “Come on!”
Those guards were feeling a bit dumbfounded, not knowing whether they should charge up. Some stopped those that were about to go up and said, “Don’t worry, he’s bleeding heavy, and soon he will fall to the ground due to excessive blood loss.”
Seeing the blood trail from the palace to the gate, the Queen had someone help her walk to the door of the palace. Suddenly, she said to those 10 guards, “This intruder trespassed into the Platinum Palace, disturbed my birthday celebration, and injured my guards. Shoot him.”
“No!” Lin Chuxue’s face directly changed. She ran over and kneeled before the Queen as she cried and pleaded, “Your Majesty, I’m willing to marry Prince Will, I’m willing to! Please spare his life and let him go, I beg of you!”
