The Favored Son Of Heaven Chapter 81

“No.” The Korean recruit shook his head, “It was a group brawl. They had a lot of people…. Back when they beat Jong-Hoon, they even said… even said that the State of Korea is nothing. Park Jong-Hwan is nothing. Then they crippled the rest in the same way….”
“Okay, okay, okay!” Park Jong-Hwan slowly nodded, his eyes radiating endlessly with an ominous light. “Are you guys all trash? Our fellow countrymen have been beaten up. Why didn’t you go beat them back? Are us Korean recruits easy to bully in recruit camp?”
A wave of silence fell over the Korean recruits. Park Jong-Hoon had been beaten into the hospital by someone using heavy fist techniques. There one and only hope was the Park Jong-Hwan before them, the recruit who had been in closed-door cultivation all this time and came out upon making a breakthrough.
Park Jong-Hwan gazed at the recruits’ eyes and sighed, “Forget it. You’re not to blame. My older brother has been serious injured. You all can only give us, the Korean recruits, more shame from losing if y’all are to go.”
The recruits gently nodded, their eyes flickering with hope. Park Jong-Hwan’s furious desire for battle had been fully evoked. Next would be….
“Let’s go! Take me to the people who beat them up!” Park Jong-Hwan’s fists were clenched so hard that they crackled without end. “Today, I’m going to send them all to the hospital!”
Even though the Federation was completely unified on the surface with everyone residing under a single federation, barriers between geographical regions weren’t easy to eliminate.
This was the case in business and especially in the military. Affiliation with sects had a lot to do with geographical regions.
Fellow townsmen, fellow countrymen, strongly resonated with each other no matter the region.
Park Jong-Hwan walked out of the hospital, and his entire company of recruits were already waiting outside the hospital. They watched their expert appear, hope and expectation in their eyes. Their atmosphere, which had dropper to a low these days, began to surge up high.
The living quarters of Third Company, Second Battalion, Seventy-Fifth Brigade was not unfamiliar to the Korean recruits. They didn’t need to ask the other recruits for them to quickly arrive upon the door to the living quarters.
“Brothers! The Goryeo Club dogs have come upon our doorstep to cause trouble again!”
Jin Kui sat before the door, soaking in the sun in rest. He roared in the first instance.
As the subject of contempt, Third Company would likewise not call the recruits of the State of Korea by proper names.
Park Jong-Hwan’s complexion turned dark in an instant. This was a humiliating derogatory term used since ancient times. His scarlet foot fiercely stomped the ground, and the Korean recruits standing beside him could feel the earth tremble slightly. Park Jong-Hwan’s foot left a deep footprint in the spot he stomped, and then he was standing before Jin Kui as if he had ridden a steed that galloped at high speeds.
The Korean recruits with bitter vision exclaimed with praise in their hearts. It was the Horse Riding Vigor of Neo Taekwondo’s Keumgang. The realm was completely different when utilized by Park Jong-Hwan.
Jin Kui felt stifled in face of Park Jong-Hwan. Though Park Jong-Hwan’s build wasn’t especially tall or huge, an ordinary figure for a man, Jin Kui felt an intense menacing pressure. It was if a guardian deity from legend was standing before him with glowering eyes.
Park Jong-Hwan didn’t even give Jin Kui the chance to talk when the Keumgang Pressing Palm was simply unleashed upon Jin Kui’s chest. Jin Kui’s thick layer of fat was totally unable to protect him at all, and his entire body flew tumbling into Third Company’s living quarters.
Only now did the sound of Jin Kui’s sternum fracturing ring out. He lay sprawled out on the ground, his head facing the sky, as two globs of blood sprayed uncontrollably from his mouth.
Then footsteps clattered like rain!
The recruits of Third Company had believed that Jin Kui was joking around, but now all of them jumped out of their beds. Deng Biao scrambled over to Jin Kui and knelt down. “Kuister….”
Park Jong-Hwan, who had injured Jin Kui with a single palm strike, stood arrogantly at the door to the living quarters. He looked akin to a guardian deity, his hands clasped behind his back as he used a lofty gaze to scan the recruits of Third Company. “I am none other than Park Jong-Hwan. Today, I will let you truly experience the martial dao of our great State of Korea. Don’t you think about coming out of this in a single piece by tomorrow. Whoever beat up my little brother, come out!”
Their own comrade had been beat up at their doorstep! The Third Company didn’t even think about how Du Peng and Qin Fen weren’t there. They all charged to the door.
Jin Kui finally stopped vomiting blood, but his face was contorted from the pain. He breathed in deep breaths. His wasn’t in danger, but he wasn’t able to move a inch.
“Can you hold on, Kuister?”
Jin Kui pulled his lips together and barely made a thumbs up with his left hand, This was his answer to Deng Biao’s question.
Concerned shouts could be heard from the recruits of Third Company that were outside the living quarters. Recruit Zhang Xiaochuan was on the ground hugging his broken left leg. He held back from screaming, uttering not a sound.
“Good!” A wave of cheers came from the Korean recruits. Park Jong-Hwan didn’t even defend against Zhang Xiaochuan’s Gale Kick. He simply broke Zhang Xiaochuan’s left leg in an instant with the Poomsae Keumgang Elbow Strike.
“I’m going to send you all to the hospital today! I won’t miss a single one of you all!”
Park Jong-Hwan clasped his hand behind his back once more. He scanned the recruits of Third Company without a direct gaze. Was Du Peng, the recruit he beat up his little brother, not here? Was he hiding? Good then! Park Jong-Hwan would keep beating up these recruits until he appears.
Without any time for silence nor thought, and with the clear knowledge of an impossible victory, there was actually someone among the recruits who jumped into the circle of combat.
The enemy was fighting at their doorstep. What sort of man cowered just because of a difference in strength?
“You have guts, but unfortunately….” The edge of Park Jong-Hwan’s chop was extremely precise, cutting the weakest point of his opponent’s arm. “You can only add to the shame of the defeated.”
The two sides both used a chopping strike, but the might was completely different when used by Park Jong-Hwan. The Third Company recruit’s arm was now in a completely misshapen appearance. Cold sweat covered his somewhat tender face from the pain. This recruit was just like Zhang Xiaochuan, having a broken limb but not screaming in pain.
“I’m next!” Deng Biao pushed through his fellow recruits with his tall and sturdy body. “Being defeated isn’t shameful! At least we dare to fight you, who is stronger than us! Even if we fight to our very last man, we still dare to fight! We absolutely aren’t like the pitiful worms behind you, who don’t even have the guts to fight! Now come!”
Park Jong-Hwan’s eyebrows jumped. Deng Bao’s words stabbed into him. An extra touch of anger could be seen on his arrogance face. “Good, good! So you’re not ashamed? You dare fight? I really want to know if anybody dares fight me after I’m done with you. I want to see if anyone will continue to say such vehement words and continue to dare to fight me.”
“Relax, there will be.” Deng Biao had a smile brimming with confidence. “Not a single one of our countrymen is a coward.”
“Biaoster….” Jin Kui, who lay in the room, shivered when he heard Deng Biao shout out those words. He fumbled his phone out from his pocket and a dialed a telephone number. He took a deep breath, resisting the pain as he brought the phone to his ear. “Squad Leader…. There’s a Park Jong-Hwan of the Korean recruits. He’s come out of closed-door cultivation…. He’s brought people to clean us up at our living quarters….”
“What?” Squad Leader Hao was first stunned as he held his phone. Then fury instantly filled his entire face. “Then what the hell are you calling this boss for!? Just beat him up!”
“We…. We can’t beat him….” Jin Kui’s face grew hot. For a younger generation to inform an elder generation about how they couldn’t win against someone was a very shameful matter. It was something very unmanly to do. “Several of our brothers have had their arms and legs broken. That person clearly stated that he’ll send us all to the hospital.”
Squad Leader Hao’s expression turned stiff as he held the phone. His subordinates had gotten beaten up. As their commanding officer, he should help reclaim their pride. It was just that this method of reclaiming pride was truly too much of a loss of face.
“So it’s Park Jong-Hwan?” Phoenix raised her eyebrows. “That kid is good material. I heard of his name before. There are quite a few of quality recruits in this batch, and he counts as one of them. Old Hao, your Third Company would naturally have no problem if they swarm him. However, if it were just one against ones, it would be unknown just how many people will be injured.”
“Squad Leader…. I know it’s very shameful of me to make this call….” Jin Kui’s voice came through the phone again. “But Du Peng’s not here, and Qin Fen’s not here either….”
Qin Fen placed his spoon on his plate. He had already stood up and was walking toward the exit.
“Qin….” Squad Leader Hao was just about to speak, but he shut his mouth and smiled softly, letting Qin Fen quickly disappear from the canteen.
Phoenix waited until Qin Fen was completely out of her sight before saying with a smile, “This kid is truly Qin Zhan’s little brother. Even their personalities are alike.”
“Yeah.” Squad Leader Hao words carried some emotion with them. “This kid may not be talkative, but he’s full of emotion. He just doesn’t like to use sappy words to express them.”
“Yep!” Butcher nodded as well. “He’s like his brother. Biased towards action.”
“Oh no!” Phoenix fiercely clapped. She spoke, very shocked, “I suddenly remembered that I have something very important I need to do. You guys can chat. I’ll be going.”
The moment Phoenix stepped a foot out the door, Squad Leader Hao also made a surprised face. “I also suddenly remembered something very important.”
“Really?” Butcher was happy to do the same. “Then I also have something important to do.”
Squadron Leader Trash laughed, “It seems like everyone has something important. Then let’s just go.”
Everyone dispersed like birds and beasts the moment the words were spoken. They rushed in different directions the moment they exited the door.
Qin Fen moved quickly. He could tell that Jin Kui had been injured from his voice through Squad Leader Hao’s phone. Even Jin Kui, who didn’t possess much strength, had been injured. This meant that someone much stronger than him had injured him heavily.
“Qin Fen?” Lin Jiaxuan was stunned for a moment. She had been searching for him all these days, never gaining the chance to ask about the later chants of the Jade Girl Heart Sutra. She never expected to suddenly bump into him here.
In her moment of stupefaction, Qin Fen had already ran quite a distance away. Lin Jiaxuan shouted hurriedly behind him. “Halt, Qin Fen!”
Qin Fen turned his head and saw Lin Jiaxuan. He didn’t slow his feet at all. He simply responded, “Something popped up. It’s urgent. I’ll talk to you later.”
Qin Fen already sprinted some further distance away as he left this message.
Lin Jiaxuan’s eyebrows wrung tightly together. Qin Fen had something urgent? Why was it that every time they met, he had something urgent? Why did he never have the time to even stop and talk to her? Lin Jiaxuan decided to follow him and see what he was up to!
The true energy of the Jade Girl Heart Sutra flooded her legs as she chased after Qin Fen.
Such quick speed? It’s even faster than my Dragnet Style? Lin Jiaxuan was shocked inside once more. Why was it that every time she met this man, something new would always appear?
A hint of irritation and fury was contained within Park Jong-Hwan’s words. He had used a heavy fist technique to break all four limbs of Deng Biao’s. He had believed that this would cower the recruits before him, but he never thought that his actions would, instead, stir their spirits to bounce back even stronger! The moment he struck one down, another recruit would immediately come forth! This was already the seventh person after the heavily injured Deng Biao. Just how many would he have to beat down before their spirits would be suppressed?
