Book 1: Chapter 22 – Hell has No Entrance, You Entered in Yourself
ED: Miki, Liza, Alterna
Inside of the bandit’s nest within the mountains.
The tiles on the floor were flat and smooth. The different ranks of bandits all lived in their respective areas.
“Master, here, try this one.”
“Master, try mine, mine are tastier.”
Five seductive looking girls surrounded a man whose bare chest was covered with thick, rough hair. They all grabbed different types of fruits and started feeding them to him.
This bare chested man was the head of the Bent Blade Union and the strongest bandit in all of Water Rites Town – The Bent Blade ‘Gai Bin’! These scared, pitiful girls were kidnapped by this bandit leader. If they made him the slightest bit unhappy, he would torture them to death… This fear was what drove them to do whatever they could to please him.
“Fuck his mother, back in the day I could enjoy delicious food every single day and I was surrounded by countless beauties, but now I can only hide in this mountain and be served by these cheap bitches!” Gai Bin’s eyes were filled with evil.
He could only hide his anger deep down in his heart now that he had become an outlaw.
This life was uncomfortable.
Was there any normal human being that would want to hide in the Mountain Range of Desolation? A place where even food and drink needed to be brought in from the outside and where one could come face to face with a magical beast at any time? He could barely tolerate it with these cheap bitches they had kidnapped by his side, but it was incomparable to the past, when he was a Meteor Knight; people would flatter him constantly and he could pick up countless pretty girls any time he wanted.
“I have to save up a lot of money to get the empire to cancel that arrest warrant.” Gai Bin mused, his eyes showing a fierce spark, “That Shi family sure has a big appetite, they want me to pay at least 20,000 gold coins to cancel the arrest warrant, damn them.”
The Shi family controlled almost everything in Azure River County, so canceling an arrest warrant was not difficult for them.
“I’ll just have to work hard for another 10 years. I should have the money then.”
“I will be free again!”
Gai Bin thirsted for freedom.
He only realized how priceless freedom really was upon becoming a wanted man.
“Head, head, head!” An ear piercing shout was heard from outside.
“What the fuck are you shouting for?!”
Gai Bin stood up with a shout, scaring all those seductive girls, who moved out of his way without any hesitation as Gai Bin stormed out angrily.
“Head, head, there is good news!” The loud voice continued saying. It was obvious that the man outside understood the consequences of disturbing his leader.
“What, good news?” Gai Bin opened up the door, stared at the man with a cruel eyes, and asked, “What kind of good news?”
The ferocious bandit behaved like an obedient grandson in front of the Meteor Knight Gai Bin and said with a smile, “It’s the fur of the Silver Moon Wolf King! Second leader and the others are all waiting for you.”
“Fur of Silver Moon Wolf King?” Gai Bin was shocked, and immediately rushed to the meeting hall.
The Meeting Hall.
Gai Bin was sitting in the leader’s seat, and the rest sat around him. The other commanders were all in the Heaven Realm. The Bent Blade Union was the most powerful bandit group in the Water Rites Town. It’s only natural that some powerful outlaws were attracted by this group and decided to join it.
“One-Ear, tell us what’s going on.” An old man in a grey robe sitting beside Gai Bin ordered.
“I was ordered to scout the perimeter as a precaution. Who would have thought that I would discover two guys!” The bandit with just one ear said, “One of those guys was the Six Armed Serpent Demon from the Xue Ying Territory, Zong Ling! The other one is a young man who wears a black robe and carries a long spear. It looks like he is about 16-17 years old.That boy in the black clothes is the one carrying the huge fur of the Silver Moon Wolf King!”
“Zong Ling?” Gai Bin gently tapped on the chair’s arm with his finger before coldly saying, “A young man who is good with a spear in Water Rites Town and is related to Zong Ling…… He must be the young lord of Xue Ying Territory who is obsessed with spear training.”
“The spear demon Dong Bo Xue Ying.” The old man in a grey robe nodded his head. “I have also heard of his name, but I have never considered him a threat to us. Being obsessed with practicing the spear and becoming a spear demon doesn’t mean he is powerful… However, he unexpectedly has the guts to enter Mountain Range of Desolation, and he even obtained the fur of a Silver Moon Wolf King… We must not underestimate his power.”
“Brother, shall we rob them?” A bald and sturdy bandit shouted out.
“They managed to get the fur of Silver Moon Wolf King…… don’t tell me Zong Ling has broken through to the Meteor rank?” Gai Bin said in low voice.
The grey robed old man nodded his head, “Zong Ling has been in the Heaven Tier for a long period of time already. There’s an extremely high possibility that he has reached the Meteor tier. Don’t forget that he is a six armed serpent demon from the royal family of serpents! If he furiously attacked with six blades… The wolf pack would be devastated! Together with some specially prepared traps, it is possible that they could capture and kill the Silver Moon Wolf King with ease.”
Dong Bo Xue Ying was capable of dealing with group attacks, but if Zong Ling who had a tail and six arms reaching the Meteor tier,he would also be highly capable of dealing with group attacks.
“Is it possible that young lord of Xue Ying Territory reached the Meteor tier as well?” The silly-looking bald bandit shouted again.
“How is that possible?”
“How old is he?”
“Even if he became a knight at the age of 7-8 years old, there is no way he would be stronger than a Heaven Knight by now.”
The bald bandit scratched his head with a laugh and said, “I think too much.”
Gai Bin coldly said, “It is very likely that Zong Ling became a Meteor Knight, and as for that young lord, he should be a Heaven Knight at most! Even if he also is a Meteor Knight… There’s only two meteor Knights, we still outnumber them.Besides, this is our territory, so we have a good shot at killing both of them.”
“That’s only the worst-case scenario… I don’t think it is possible for the young man to be a Meteor Knight.” The man in the grey robe said, “Our chances for success are high.”
“Alright then, we shall kill them both and rob them of the Silver Moon Wolf King fur!” A big smile emerged on Gai Bin’s face, “Since that young man is a lord he should also be carrying some valuable treasures on him.”
“Let’s steal them blind!”
The meeting hall was filled with fervent shouts.
“One-ear, where are they now? Gai Bin asked immediately.
“They are still far from here and is currently on the path to leave the mountain range.They will definitely have to pass through the canyon in front of us.” The one-eared bandit replied immediately.
“Great, then we shall ambush them in the canyon right in front of us. Second brother, you will arrange this ambush.” Gai Bin gazed at the grey robed old man beside him. This robed figure was a Heaven Tier sorcerer, and his rank was only second to Gai Bin amongst the bandits. He became a wanted man because he had abducted many humans for his experiments.
“Leave everything to me.” The sorcerer said with a nod.
Deep within the mountain range.
Dong Bo Xue Ying was carrying the fur of the Silver Moon Wolf King, walking side by side with uncle Zong.
They were paying close attention to their surroundings, but with Dong Bo Xue Ying’s current strength, even a 5th tier monster wouldn’t be a threat.
While walking into the wide open canyon, Dong Bo Xue Ying frowned and said, “Uncle Zong, stop.”
“What’s wrong?” Zong Ling was startled.
“I feel like something isn’t right.” Xue Ying said as looked at the path in front of them.
After lifting his spear techniques to a near-godly level and becoming a Great Spear Master, Xue Ying had begun to sense the Qi around him. All the paths they took before were filled with natural Qi, but the Qi in canyon that lay ahead was clearly mixed with an unnatural and ferocious Qi.
“There might be an ambush in front. Let’s turn back.” Xue Ying said, “Let’s see if they will show themselves.”
When Dong Bo Xue Ying and Zong Ling turned around to immediately take the path where they came from –
“Six Armed Serpent Demon Zong Ling, since you took the effort to come here, stay a while, don’t just leave!” A cold voice resounded in the canyon, “My brothers, show yourselves, they have discovered us.”
“Huh?” Dong Bo Xue Ying and Zong Ling immediately noticed lots of hidden bandits revealing themselves on the mountain walls.If you were to count carefully then you could see that there were nearly a thousand of them, and all the bandits were staring at Dong Bo Xue Ying and Zong Ling, as if they were looking at two fat sheep.
A group of people walked out from the canyon in front of them. A ferocious looking man with two knives at his waist led in front,with his groups of subordinates following behind him..
“Gai Bin!” A cold gleam emerged in Zong Ling’s eyes.
“Hahaha…. Zong Ling, oh Zong Ling, there’s no entrance to hell but you jumped in it by yourself!” Gai Bing laughed grimly, “Even though you have become a Meteor Knight, now that you have come to my territory, you’ll definitely meet your demise. Haha, I couldn’t touch you when you were hiding in the Xue Ying Territory, but you came here by yourself… Are you seeking death? I will grant you your wish! Oh, as for that tender-skinned young lord, don’t worry, I will let you die quickly. You won’t feel any pain at all!”
