The Empress's Gigolo Chapter 371
After the reinforcement troops of the Protectorate of the South came from the southeast and attacked as well, the Great Xia army was routed shorty thereafter. Death cries began to shift to the north from within the camp.
"Let's go!" Ren Baqian got up with a carefree look on his face. This was the last battle, and the next step was to constantly chase and kill, which had nothing to do with him."Inform Sir Li that we will take our leave first and will wait for them in Liao City," Ren Baqian instructed a guard to inform Li Qianqiu.
After a while, he would make a trip back to Earth. Then, he would head to Liao City and wait for the winged cavalry before returning to Ping City to receive the empress.
A moment later, Ren Baqian suddenly recalled something and walked into the Great Xia camp. At this time, the majority of the surviving Great Xia soldiers were already fleeing toward the north and only a few were spotted in the barracks.
The camp was filled with corpses that were cut apart.
The aboriginals were really strong with the winged cavalry particularly so. Often, they could easily chop someone in half with just one strike of their saber.
As a result, the ground was filled with broken limbs and internal organs. The sight was extremely disgusting. "Can any of you tell who was an expert from these corpses?" Ren Baqian asked the guards.
"We can't tell!" A few of the guards were stunned. Asking them to make out who was an expert from the corpses was equivalent to asking them if they could discern the gender of the animal that they had just consumed.
Ren Baqian was somewhat disappointed. It was a difficult task to identify who the experts were among the large number of corpses.
"Sir, perhaps this subordinate can try to identify them," one of the guards suddenly spoke.
Ren Baqian was pleased and said, "Find me the corpses of two experts, and once it's done, I'll gift you with one catty worth of White Rabbit Creamy Candies!" That guard scratched his head and thought, What on earth is "White Rabbit Creamy Candy?"
He then laughed mischievously and answered, "Let's talk about it after I have identified which ones were experts! However, Sir will have to change the reward!"
After that, everyone looked at him rummage through the corpses. In addition, he didn't flip each and every corpse over. Instead, he looked down and shook his head from time to time when walking through the corpses. It was evident that he had a clear-cut goal in his mind. An hour later, that guard dragged a body that was split into two. This body was equipped with armor and a helmet as well.
"Sir, this person should be rather powerful." Upon seeing that the body was dressed in a commander's outfit, Ren Baqian suddenly recalled something. He had actually forgotten this matter.
Even if the commanders in this world weren't the finest experts, they weren't anywhere near weak.
"Sir, this person seems like a captain. Furthermore, looking at the injuries on his body, it's evident that he didn't die in one blow."
Looking at the position of the cut, the tip of the weapon that had been used was a little blunt. This was obviously inflicted by a weapon used by the winged cavalry.
The winged cavalry were powerful and didn't require a sharp weapon to chop someone to death. Moreover, the tip of a sharp weapon would break easily. As a result, the tips of the winged cavalry's weapons were slightly rounder.
This commander fought hand-to-hand with the winged cavalry and didn't get killed in one blow, but had sustained injuries everywhere. This illustrated that they fought several exchanges and that at the very least, he should be at the intermediate stage if not the apex of the Earth Wheel level.
After listening to that guard's analysis, Ren Baqian was a little startled.
There was actually such a genius among his bunch of guards? Genius indeed!
Ren Baqian actually remembered this guard's name; he was called Zhe Yu. Even though he was an Earth Wheel expert, all of the other guards were also Earth Wheel experts. As such, Ren Baqian didn't notice anything that stood out about Zhe Yu.
"You did a good job!" Ren Baqian complimented him.
Zhe Yu sniggered.
"What reward do you want?"
"Sir, back then, you collected many weapons and among them, there was one saber that I'm envious of. Since Sir doesn't even use it, I would like to ask for it!" Zhe Yu immediately answered Ren Baqian. He had been thinking about this saber for quite some time, but never had a suitable opportunity to obtain it. It just so happened that Ren Baqian wanted to find the bodies of experts, so he immediately knew that his opportunity had come along.
"Merits will be rewarded. Take your pick later when we return." Ren Baqian nodded. Those weapons were left behind previously by the Great Xia soldiers. He kept a few of them that looked promising, and even though he wanted to keep them for himself, he didn't mind giving one to Zhe Yu."Thank you, Sir!" Zhe Yu immediately expressed his thanks loudly. He was ecstatic.
The rest of the guards were envious of him.
One had to know that having a good saber was more precious to these guards than having any other treasures. It was even more important than having a wife.
"This applies to the rest of you too. Do well and you will naturally be rewarded accordingly," Ren Baqian continued.
"Many thanks, Sir Ren!" everyone answered in unison.
Although protecting Ren Baqian was a dangerous task, mainly because people always attempted to assassinate a weakling like him, he relied entirely on these guards that risked their lives for him. However, Ren Baqian was indeed not a narrow-minded person. Furthermore, he was close to Her Majesty and had many tricks up his sleeves. As such, people always naturally believed what he said.
"Try looking for another expert's corpse!" Ren Baqian said to Zhe Yu.
Ren Baqian waited over there while numerous guards went into the pile of corpses to find the corpse of another expert. It took a long time to find the second corpse, and by looking at the armor on it, the body belonged to another captain.
Ren Baqian was perfectly satisfied with the fact that he managed to find the corpses of two experts.
"Stuff the internal organs back in!" Ren Baqian instructed as he pointed at the two bodies which were split into four segments and had their internal organs dragging on the floor. He had better bring the internal organs back to Earth as well. Who knew if there was a difference between the internal organs of an Earth Wheel expert and an ordinary person. Then, he brought everyone to a desolate place and got someone to untie the bundle of weapons that was hanging from the fork-horned cow.
"Take a look and choose the one you want!"
Zhe Yu was in ecstasy as he straightforwardly took a saber from the bundle of weapons. With both hands holding it, he said to Ren Baqian, "Sir, this is the saber I was talking about!"
Ren Baqian took it from Zhe Yu's hands. It was very heavy and weighed 30 kilograms at the very least. The scabbard was made of copper and was green, while the handle of the saber was made from animal hide. Immediately, Ren Baqian knew why it was so heavy after pulling the saber out of the scabbard.
It was thick. The thickest portion was two fingers thick and the widest part was near the hilt, which was about the size of a palm. The spine of the saber was a straight line, and from the widest part, the tip of the saber was positioned at the end of it and arced from the blade. The blade was one meter long and looked somewhat like an enlarged version of a boning knife.
Ting! Ren Baqian threw the saber over to Zhe Yu, who was full of anticipation, and declared,"It now belongs to you!"
"Thank you, Sir!" Zhe Yu hugged the saber in extreme happiness, as if he was hugging his own wife.
Ren Baqian then bundled the two corpses and brought them back to Earth after everyone left.
These two bodies were prepared for the laboratory.
Although the progress of studying the martial arts manuals on Earth was rather quick, it was because those people practicing it were already near the Earth Wheel level. As a result, their progress was naturally much faster.
However, their progress in the later stages might slow down.
Ren Baqian couldn't wait any longer.
He was still waiting for the laboratory to conduct research on the things that he wanted.
It wasn't only the Earth Wheel level. Most importantly, there was still the Spirit Wheel level.
His entry into the Earth Wheel level was smooth, but with the [Ruyi Visualization], there wasn't much detail with regards to entering the Spirit Wheel level. He didn't want to be flabbergasted by the time he reached the apex of the Earth Wheel level. In any case, the research on Earth would definitely be beneficial for him. Upon returning to Earth, he threw the two bodies into the bathroom before finding a huge bag to put them inside. After that, he placed them in the trunk of his car. During this process, he kept having the misconception that he was doing a post mortem on the bodies.
In Dayao, nobody would find it inappropriate to be carrying corpses and walking around everywhere.
On Earth, however, the feeling of impropriety was extremely strong after Ren Baqian placed the bodies in the trunk of his car.
The main difference was the environment. In the case of Earth, this scene was too familiar and similar to what was seen in movies. Next, he reckoned that he would bump into the police while on the way to the laboratory and would be pulled over for a traffic stop. That would be the perfect scenario. Then, it would turn into an action film or even the "Rule of Law!"
["Rule of Law": a China program where they broadcast real life lawsuits and cases]
Two hours later, Ren Baqian stopped his car by the side of the road and looked at the police officer that was knocking on his window.
He cursed under his breath, "Son of a bi*ch!"
