“Association Leader, is Three Wonders Clan backing the Ferric Blood Association?”
“You can say so.”
“Then our Chivalry Association should have a backer too, right?”
“… We do.”
“Which one is it?”
“Three Wonders Clan.”
“So, no matter how much we fight, we’re still in the same family?” Chu Li made a confused face.
Qiao Zhenhai shook his head. “We’re not in the same family. The two associations’ founders were Three Wonders Clan’s disciples, but since the founders were archenemies, Three Wonders Clan would not take any association’s side. They merely guaranteed that no one from Luo State City would interfere with our business.”
Chu Li scoffed. “Then why would Three Wonders Clan’s members be at Feng Changwen’s place? What’s Feng Changwen’s background?”
“He has an uncle who’s a Commander in Three Wonders Clan.” Qiao Zhenhai said.
Chu Li’s eyes widened. “A Grandmaster?”
Qiao Zhenhai nodded slowly.
Chu Li asked, “Association Leader, are you a match for him then?”
“It’s hard to tell.” Qiao Zhenhai answered.
Chu Li grinned. “You are still young Association Leader, while this uncle must be quite old by now, so you’ll definitely be able to surpass him. What are you afraid of?”
Qiao Zhenhai waved his hands. “It’s not the same thing… I’m not afraid of Feng Changwen’s uncle, but Three Wonders Clan!”
Chu Li suggested, “Association Leader, I have an idea! Since I must kill Feng Changwen but can’t get the association in trouble, why don’t you expel me from Chivalry Association?”
“Mmm…?” Qiao Zhenhai stared at him in surprise.
Chu Li grit his teeth. “Feng Changwen nearly killed me once, crippled Elder Guo, in addition to murdering Commander Wu and Commander Zhou. If we don’t kill this fella, won’t Chivalry Association lose face?”
“Without the association’s protection, you won’t be able to live long, even after killing Feng Changwen!”
“As long as I can kill him, it doesn’t matter if I die… I’ll just run far away after killing him. I’m a loner anyway!”
“You’ve had a fortuitous encounter and gotten a whole lot stronger, such that you now have a great future ahead of you. Why would you want to stoop to his level?” Qiao Zhenhai questioned.
Chu Li huffed. “I can’t take it any longer, I must kill him!”
“Nonsense.” Qiao Zhenhai shook his head.
Chu Li insisted. “If you disagree, I’ll quit Chivalry Association!”
“You…!” Qiao Zhenhai’s face darkened. “You’re determined to die!”
Chu Li disdainfully continued. “That’s right, I must get Feng Changwen’s head no matter the cost! This fella must die no matter what!”
Qiao Zhenhai was confused.
Feng Changwen might have pushed him off a cliff, but this misfortune came to him as a blessing in disguise. He did not die and even gained great power from it, so logically speaking he should not be bearing such a huge grudge towards Feng Changwen the way he was now.
When it came to the matter of crippling Guo Shan and murdering Commander Wu and Commander Zhou, although he shared a close relationship with Guo Shan, Guo Shan did not die whilst Commander Wu and Commander Zhou were not even remotely close to him. Thus, he should not be so eager to take revenge.
Chu Li explained, “I just can’t stand seeing that fella running wild, I must kill him!”
Chu Li wanted to kill Feng Changwen primarily to avenge the original Zhao Dahe’s death, and secondly because Feng Changwen had connections with the Holy Church of Light and acted as a shortcut to entering the Holy Church of Light. Therefore, getting rid of Feng Changwen would kill two birds with one stone.
“Just because you can’t stand him?”
“Also, because he tried to kill me!”
“You…” Qiao ZHenhai could start to understand where he was coming from.
If it was someone else, they might be fine with not killing Feng Changwen, but for a one-track minded person like Zhao Dahe, his bloodlust understandable.
“Association Leader, kick me out of the association tomorrow, I’ll go and finish off Feng Changwen right after my injuries have fully recovered!”
Qiao Zhenhai shook his head. “How can I expel you? You just made a great contribution to the association.”
“Just say that I got haughty after doing something great and punched you.” Chu Li stated.
Qiao Zhenhai burst out laughing.
Chu Li asked innocently, “How about, I really give you a few strikes?”
“…Alright, this notion might not be believable if I used it on another person, but with you, I’m sure the others will believe it.”
“That’s agreed, then!”
The next day, when Chu Li was practicing blade in his courtyard, he utilized Life and Death Scripture and found himself moving at an incredible speed.
With the fortuitous encounter as an excuse, his speedy recovery was not suspicious. Rather, people were amazed and admired him for it.
Guo Shan slammed the door open with a “boom” and walked in with a furious look on his face. “What’s wrong with you, Dahe?”
Chu Li continued swinging his blade around. “Is Association Leader going to expel me?”
Guo Shan’s tone was grave. “You’re getting more and more daring. Since your fortuitous encounter, the things you do are getting more and more incorrigible!”
“I know what I’m doing.”
Guo Shan roared out in fury. “What do you know? If you knew anything, would you have hit Association Leader?”
“Association leader won’t let me kill Feng Changwen.”
“You…” Guo Shan lost his anger in a second.
His hatred toward Feng Changwen was sky-high because if not for Feng Changwen, he would not be a cripple and be stuck in such a situation.
Chu Li continued. “Association Leader said that my actions will bring Chivalry Association down so he could only kick me out!”
“Why would you bring Chivalry Association down?”
“Because Feng Changwen has an uncle who’s a Commander in Three Wonders Clan!”
Guo Shan’s expression immediately changed.
Chu Li smirked. “I’m a loner anyway, so I don’t care about whatever Three Wonders Clan Commander he has, I must kill Feng Changwen!”
“Ah…” Guo Shan sighed.
“Elder Guo, you don’t have to worry, I don’t want to involve you in this. You have a family.”
“My *ss, Feng Changwen is also my enemy!”
“Then help me in secret, let Xiao Song assist me.”
“How can he help?”
Chu Li replied, “He can go outside Luo State City to watch Feng Changwen. This fella’s Light-body Technique is too good, so I must find a chance to kill him in a single blow!”
“…Alright!” Guo Shan nodded.
On the evening the next day, Chu Li was having his meal by a stone table. He was having food delivered to him by Xing Er as instructed by Madam Guo.
Song Fei flipped over the wall and exclaimed, “Dahe, Feng Changwen is back!”
Chu Li immediately tensed up and put down his bowl and chopsticks.
Song Fei went on, “He just came back from Luo State City and will probably get back to his house in an hour.”
A smile crept onto Chu Li’s face. “Great! This time, I must wipe him out completely!”
Song Fei continued gravely, “He has ten Protectors with him.”
Chu Li huffed dismissively. “So what if he has ten Protectors? You just ran back from Luo State City, drink some water and find something to eat!”
As soon as he finished talking, he grabbed his long blade that was resting on the stone table and turned away proudly.
Song Fei contemplated for a while before immediately leaving for Guo Shan’s house and then to the association.
Feng Changwen was riding his horse on the path to Peace Town with ten riders behind him who all had innate cultivation.
His expression was solemn as he rode the horse.
He had lost his reputation for fleeing so pathetically this time and could not believe that the Zhao Dahe that he looked down upon had become so hard to deal with such that he was no longer a match for him.
This time, he went to Luo State City to ask for two martial art masters to help him destroy Zhao Dahe.
He had never thought of fighting alone to be a noble act, rather, he thought that it was a stupid move.
Only a fool would not use all his resources to destroy his enemy, let his enemy improve, and seek his own death. Zhao Dahe was a perfect example of this, Feng Changwen should have killed him before pushing him off the cliff.
Unfortunately, he was too hasty at the time that had only managed to ambush him with a push and not an extra stab.
How great it was that Zhao Dahe had gotten a fortuitous encounter and gotten more powerful such that he was now a threat to Feng Changwen’s life.
He had learned his lesson. That was why he immediately left for Luo State City to ask for two martial art masters from his uncle, he must defeat him in a single blow and not allow Zhao Dahe to have another chance to fight back. This fella was too lucky for his own good, who knows if he would get another fortuitous encounter again? Feng Changwen knew that he could not be too careful about this!
“Boom!” Soil suddenly splashed upward accompanied by the sound of an explosion as a silhouette popped out from the ground. A cold metal glint flashed and Feng Changwen’s horse neighed in pain. Feng Changwen looked down and saw that it had lost a limb.
