Chapter 747: Interests of the nation are above everything else (Part One)
Xu Cheng’s legs clamped onto Azure Dragon’s waist and mercilessly threw him, smashing him against the stone lion statue.
Azure Dragon spat out a large mouthful of blood.
He laid there on the ground, with his eyes looking at Xu Cheng in disbelief. His eyes were wide open as he asked weakly, “Incredible, what did you do to me?”
Sparks of electricity suddenly appeared in Xu Cheng’s hands.
“This is the core of the Deviant Mercenary Corp. I originally wanted to give the world a surprise, but you guys are too eager, so consider this a gift.”
Azure Dragon slowly crawled up and sat on the ground.
He suddenly laughed out loud, followed by him spitting a mouthful of blood onto the ground and looking noticeably weak.
“That felt good. I haven’t fought like this for a very long time.”
Xu Cheng looked at him from afar and said, “Are you still able to fight? I feel good too, but I haven’t fought enough.”
Azure Dragon hung his head and shook. “No, internal power is like this. Its biggest flaw is that it’s exhausting in a short amount of time compared to external power. Once the internal power reaches a certain point, the whole body will collapse. I have lost all my strength, and with my broken ribs and ruptured veins, I’m already as weak as a candle flickering in the wind.”
He raised his head as he looked at the skyscrapers outside the Forbidden city and smiled. “These years, we have always wanted to kill the remnants of the H Family who massacred us back then! Those descendants who left the country were pretty much all killed by us, and only the five of them were left. We really did want to kill them, but seeing how Huaxia developed until this day, we really endured it until today. Yes, they won, and they were right to overthrow the empire. That corrupt and enslaving dynasty could only become part of history, including us eunuchs. Back then, we were not willing to conform. Why was it that us eunuchs must be buried with history. The new era would simply not accept us, and our existence would only bring shame to the history of Huaxia. That’s why we were killed and expelled, but who’s there to say that we can’t resist our fate? We were not wrong either; whether we were aiding the enemies or not, we were just fighting to survive.
To be honest, Xu Cheng felt sympathy for them from listening to his words.
The turning of an era was a disgraceful history that the modern world people wanted to forget, and so the eunuchs must go extinct with that era. However, they weren’t wrong.
Xu Cheng empathized with him, because if one day he stood against the majority and were forced onto a path of no-return, what would his choice be?
That was the natural response for everyone because there would be no more right or wrong by that time, only the desire to survive.
Xu Cheng looked at him and said, “Are you afraid of death?”
Azure Dragon let out a bitter smile. “If I was still able to fight, then I would kill you. The reason why I’ve said this much is because it may be my last words, so if you want to kill me then do it. We don’t belong to this era, and our existence will be a disgrace to Huaxia!”
Having said that, he closed his eyes. “Finish it. We came back because we wanted to die in this land.”
Xu Cheng shifted like a shadow and threw a punch at Azure Dragon’s face as a test to see if this old man was really not going to resist.
When the fist approached, the old man stayed still with his pale face, not even thinking about resisting.
