Chapter 479: Shock (Part One)
Xu Cheng glanced at Solo and turned back to his seat.
After he sat down, he said to Solo, “It’s now 8 PM. Before 12 AM, I want to see your sincerity. If that head isn’t delivered on time, I will personally pay a visit to the Assassin Alliance.”
Solo nodded, and he began dragging those three guys’ bodies out of the door.
But, Xu Cheng said, “Don’t play pretend anymore. I know those three aren’t dead yet. Your dagger just scratched their throats, you controlled the depth really well and just sliced the outer tissue layer without hurting the artery and trachea. When they fell, they didn’t even bother to struggle symbolically, who are they trying to fool? Just get up. Before 12, if the head of the rewarder isn’t delivered, I will take these three guys’ lives as well!”
Solo’s body shivered.
Those three that were laying on the floor immediately got up and thanked Xu Cheng, “Thanks for not killing us!”
“Get lost then! Next time, facking do more homework before you do the job, don’t just rush to kill any target that gets registered. Oh right, you guys haven’t answered me yet, how much did you guys accept to come and kill me?”
Those three assassins’ booty holes tightened, and Assassin King Solo also shivered again.
“Mr. Xu… Uh…”
Xu Cheng frowned.
Those three assassins said in unison, “5 hundred thousand.”
Xu Cheng directly burst out in laughter.
“I was gonna say, if that person respects me and puts a few billion on the line I might just let him go. But 5 hundred thousand? Tsk tsk, if I let him go this time, I’m basically allowing him to humiliate me more. No, it’s even too good for him to live another 4 hours. I want you guys to bring his head to me before 10!”
“Yes!” All four of them nodded in a cold sweat as they backed out of the villa.
All that was left at the scene were the dry-mouthed Lin Dong and Stenson, standing there, still dumbfounded.
Especially Stenson, he felt as if he couldn’t see through his boss at all.
What kind of person is this guy? Telling the assassins that came to assassinate him to assassinate the person that told them to assassinate him? And only giving them a 2-hour limit? Why are those four guys so scared of him? He could bargain like that with the assassins too?
Xu Cheng looked at Stenson and said, “If you want to get on the same ride as me, you will get car-sick if you don’t have a certain level of strength and mental preparedness. It’s normal for you to be temporarily not used to it. You can just stay the night and treat it as work, help wait for the experiment results.”
Stenson’s body shivered, how could he reject?
At this moment, he really wanted to cry and plead, Boss, can I get off of the car? It’s too dark, I’m scared!
“Ye-yes, Boss!” He turned around and didn’t even dare to look at Xu Cheng. He just went back to sit on the sofa upright, with his hands on his thighs, not daring to move. Thank god he didn’t betray him, or he would be the one to die tonight.
Just when Xu Cheng was about to pick up the tea cup, he noticed the cup was empty, so he looked at Lin Dong.
Lin Dong immediately poured a cup of hot tea for his teacher and then went back to sit silently. His whole brain was filled with the scene of his teacher catching the bullets and the four assassins treating him like he was the boss. He felt that not just Stenson, but he also got another sneak peek at the unfathomable level of power his teacher had.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
No wonder, whether it was Luo Yi or Li Wei, including Ye Xiu, they all had absolute respect for Xu Cheng like they were respecting a legend. It was also no wonder that everyone that saw him said he was not worthy of being Xu Cheng’s apprentice. It turned out that what he saw before was only barely the surface of what Xu Cheng was capable of.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
The more Lin Dong thought about it, the more he began feeling excited to have such a god-like teacher.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
