Chapter 364: For the Country (Part One)
Xu Cheng sat down onto the ground. At this time, he really wanted to take a smoke to ease the depressed feeling in his heart.
Bei Shan waited until all the remaining Dragon Division members grouped again before coming over to find Xu Cheng. At last, they arrived at the Li Family, and they just saw a trail of blood and corpses to and at the gate. Cross-checking with the data they had, these people were all front-line masters of the Li Family.
The three Sky Kings saw Xu Cheng sitting there, with his head down.
Bei Shan ran over and asked, “Is there anything wrong?”
Xu Cheng shook his head. He lifted his head, looked at those three senior brothers of his, and asked, “Do we have to kill the women and kids too?”
Bei Shan nodded with a determined expression.
Xu Cheng rubbed his hair and said, feeling dejected, “Why?”
The Ace of Clovers sighed and said, “Weeds grows back if the roots aren’t removed. These descendants of the behemoth clans have a strong sense of belonging, and if we don’t uproot them once and for all, the consequences will be dire.”
Bei Shan patted Xu Cheng on the shoulder and said, “Leave the rest to us, your mission is done. You did it.”
“I regret doing all of this.” Xu Cheng sighed, “I also don’t know if what I did was right or wrong… I would rather go and kill the enemies from foreign countries than kill our own people! Even if I didn’t kill those women and kids, I also became an accomplice.”
Then, he stood up and walked out of the Li Family Manor alone.
Afterward, there were waves of miserable cries coming from behind him. He closed his eyes in pain. Maybe during this lifetime, this was a memory that he would never want to remember. Maybe it was the death of his mother, or maybe it was because he always thought he was on the side of justice, and even though the interests of the country were above all else, he still couldn’t stand all of these people dying. Maybe, he still had flesh and blood, and he couldn’t become completely cold-blooded.
As he was leaving, Xu Cheng faintly said to Bei Shan, “Senior Brother, I want to take a break for the next little while.”
Bei Shan understandingly nodded.
– Yanjing –
Inside Zhang Chenfeng’s courtyard, both old men from the Li and Murong Families leaned against the large tree in the courtyard, injured. The days of autumn were a bit chilly, and the leaves were slowly falling to the ground.
After the Ace of Spades took out the 6 guards and came to help, he was also injured and was now unconscious in a corner. As for the old man Zhang Chenfeng, he was leaning against the wall. All three of these old men had blood by their mouths, and they breathed heavily as they stared right at each other. The situation was very tense.
Zhang Chenfeng suddenly grinned and laughed. “If I was still at my peak, you two pieces of garbage wouldn’t even have dared to come tonight!”
“We already bribed your personal doctor, and he said you were on the verge of death. If we don’t do it now, when else? A mad dog like you would definitely take action before you die, so we might as well just come and watch you,” the old man of the Murong Family said.
Zhang Chenfeng sneered. “What’s the use of watching me? You really think the Dragon Division can’t operate without me?”
“After you die, we actually indeed wouldn’t worry about those pieces of garbage at the Dragon Division at all.” The old man of the Li Family sneered. “You really think we don’t have the documents on those children of yours? 4 Sky Kings, 12 Earth Kings, and the rest are all A to A+ class garbage! As for the 12 Earth Kings, any one of our guest masters could easily win a 1 on 1 duel. And for the 4 Sky Kings, the elders of the clan can still take care of them. Just with that puny Dragon Division, without you, you really think they have a chance to win? Don’t think we are idiots. The Ye and Ryong Families were killed one after another, not at the same time. If it wasn’t for you that led those Dragon Blades, we wouldn’t believe it even if we die.”
