Chapter 563: Diamond Mine (Part One)
Xu Cheng then said, “Mario, remember, don’t fight just about anyone in close-quarters combat. Some assassins can even use their fingernails when they are close enough in range to kill you. You can easily lift people up, but then your eyes would become exposed, and the bottom half of your body would become vulnerable. Just one kick would be enough to burst your nuts.”
The others laughed upon hearing.
Mario: “Tsk tsk, Big Brother Cheng, don’t expose it to the others, or how am I going to spar with them in the future?”
Xu Cheng said in a serious tone to those people, “Listen, I hope you guys can continue improving and learn how to utilize the specialties of your body to the fullest. You should all try to find out your weaknesses and eliminate them because for a master, the fewer flaws they have, the more invincible they become.”
The others all replied in unison, “Yes, Boss!”
Xu Cheng: “Zhang Xiu, you are probably the most bored tonight.”
Zhang Xiu said curiously, “Why do you think that?”
Xu Cheng smiled. “There are calluses at the root of your fingers; they aren’t from using guns but from knives or blades. Looking at the size of your arm, it’s not likely that you specialize in playing with short and light daggers. So, you should probably be someone that specializes in blades. You didn’t get to use blades to kill enemies, you are probably feeling a bit disappointed, right?”
Zhang Xiu’s body stopped for a brief moment. “Big Brother Cheng, you could even tell that?”
Xu Cheng faintly said, “Your right hand is slightly longer than your left, that’s the characteristic of someone that frequently trains with a blade. You used to practice Kung Fu?”
Zhang Xiu said, “Yeah, it’s a long story. You know as well, in the past, we used to talk with fists, but fists can’t earn bread, and I also don’t have many other skills. My pride is also pretty strong, so later on I got into some trouble.”
Xu Cheng: “I understand, and the Land of Mercenaries suits people like you.”
Zhang Xiu smiled. “I felt so too! That’s why I felt that before I die, I should come to this place and have a taste of my life from before.”
“Yeah, you will fall in love with this place.” Xu Cheng smiled and said, “Alright, everyone, group all the captives together, don’t be in a rush to kill them if they can still talk.”
As Xu Cheng said that, he came out from the hill and moved towards the city.
There were about 30 captives in total, all tied up and grouped together. Some were terrified, some had their heads down in silence, and some were not scared at all and even appeared to despise Xu Cheng and his team.
“You don’t know who’s behind us?” Some people warned, their necks reddening as veins popped out.
“Yeah, we know.” Luo Yi bent down, looked at him, and said, “And that’s why we decided to play with you guys first.”
“Which mercenary group are you from? How come I’ve never seen you guys before?”
Luo Yi showed the Deviant Corp tattoo on his arm to him.
The disheveled captive sneered. “What an ugly logo, I’ve never heard of it nor have I seen it. No wonder, it’s another batch of hot-blooded naive guys trying to establish a new clan on this land. You don’t even know about the superpowers occupying this land.”
“Know what? You guys are just a bunch of weaklings,” Li Wei snorted.
That man had already fought with Zhang Xiu and the others earlier and knew their capabilities. He sneered, “Just get your boss to come over and talk. If it wasn’t for the fact that our five bosses died, you guys coming in would just be feeding us. I want to see your boss, that guy that was using a sniper!”
At this time, Xu Cheng walked through the gate and slowly towards them.
Luo Yi and the others immediately shifted to the side to open up a path.
The captive looked at Xu Cheng and smiled. “I knew it, there was only one sniper. Can I have the honor of knowing your name?”
Xu Cheng became quite a bit interested and asked him, “How did you know there was only one sniper?”
The captive said calmly, “You are using an SRS, each clip holds 5 bullets. Every time you fire five shots, there were pauses, and if I was right, it was you quickly switching mags.”
Xu Cheng smiled. “How do you know I’m their boss?”
The captive looked up at Xu Cheng and said, “You fired over a hundred shots tonight. No ordinary sniper could manage to do this in such a short amount of time while maintaining focus and accuracy. So, besides being a sharpshooter, your overall strength is top-tier as well. Most importantly, I’ve fought with your men. To be honest, I really didn’t get why they had the confidence to attack this place.”
Xu Cheng looked at this guy and said, “Your ranking in this clan isn’t low, right?”
