Xu Cai’s face darkened when he saw Ling Mo head down the corridor with the rest. He pulled Shi Bin, who was at the back of the group, over and asked in a low voice, “Tell me about him.”
Shi Bin was stunned. He’d was about to say “psychic”, but he haltingly corrected himself when he thought of Ling Mo’s chilling gaze, “He is…how would I know what kind of person he is. Either way, he’s Ye Lian’s boyfriend…” After he said that, he dejectedly added, “His skill isn’t bad either.”
“Oh,” Xu Cai nodded his head before he suddenly leaned closer whispered, “You definitely have some food on you, right? Could you give us a bit of help? I’ll be honest with you, we don’t have much left.”
Shi Bin had a bitter look on his face, “How could I have any food! Ling Mo has plenty of it, however, he dislikes me, so I don’t get any! But I, your father, can do without it!” Shi Bin’s face was flushed red in anger.
“In that case…” Xu Cai clapped Shi Bin on the shoulder and said, “it looks like your life these past few days wasn’t all that good either. How long are you guys planning to stay here for?”
“How would I know. But since it’s getting dark, we should be staying here for the night.”
“How about this, look for a chance to separate yourself from the group awhile later. I’ll be waiting for you at the staircase.”
Xu Cai’s suggestion gave rise to a look of suspicion on Shi Bin’s face, but Xu Cai quickly added, “I only wanted to speak with you about some things, don’t worry. Besides, aren’t we brothers? Are you telling me that Ling Mo even has the ability to restrict your freedom?”
“Alright then… I’ll take my leave.”
Shi Bin hurriedly said his farewell to Xu Cai and rushed to catch up with Ling Mo’s group.
Shi Bin, on the other hand, remained silent at the entrance for a long while before he revealed a chilling smile. From the looks of it, Ling Mo had Shi Bin under his thumb, causing resentment to well up within Shi Bin.
People like Shi Bin were the type people who had a vicious side, but they were narrow-minded and extremely jealous. He thought his true personality was hidden very well, but Xu Cai had long since seen through him.
“With a bag that big and the number of weapons they had…” Xu Cai slowly clenched his fist. Appearing as if he’d made up his mind, he turned around and faced the group of students still had a look of astonishment on their faces.
A male student squeezed his way out of the group and agitatedly said, “Xu Cai! Why’d you block us just now! Didn’t you hear what that person said? They came from the red light district! We can’t stay here and wait for our deaths, we need to beg them to bring us along!”
Xu Cai slammed the door shut with his backhand and shot the male student a vicious glare filled with anger, “What did you say?”
Although the male student was tall and chubby, he was fearful of Xu Cai. He immediately shut his mouth after hearing Xu Cai retort and even meekly averted his eyes, no longer daring to meet his gaze.
Everyone in the room immediately fell silent, but another male student quickly welled up the courage to say, “He’s right! Xu Cai, you’ve always brought a few people out to look for food and you always end up being the only one to come back alive, but the food you bring back isn’t even enough to last us a few days… If this keeps up, we…we don’t want to die just yet! Let’s ask them for help!”
“What, are you trying to say that I’m the one who left them behind and caused their deaths? Are you trying to imply that if this keeps up, the rest of you are going to die as well?” Xu Cai’s eyes widened, and his tone of voice immediately turning vicious, “Each and every one of you are eating the food that I’ve risked my life to bring back, and yet you still dare to say such things to me? All of you would be dead without me! Are you all thinking that I deprived you of your lifeline just now? Do you idiots really believe that they managed to get through the red light district with just the few of them? What a joke! Let’s not talk about the others, but I know all about trash like Shi Bin. As for the other guy, he doesn’t look like anything much either. Even if he is stronger than Shi Bin, it isn’t by much. Even if Ye Lian and the other girl look rather skillful, they’re stringing along an invalid!”
After saying that, Xu Cai licked his lips and let out a derisive laugh, “Do you guys really believe they have what it takes to get through the red light district? Then let me ask you this: what are they doing here? Why would they bother coming back after going through all that trouble to escape? That guy saying he has things to take care of here…is full of shit! Do you think I’m like the rest of you idiots and lack a brain? With the way things are, he wouldn’t come running back even for the sake of his own mother! The way I see it, they’re likely getting ready to escape!”
Xu Cai’s words caused everyone to look at each other in dismay. After hesitating awhile, he couldn’t resist asking another question, “Then why would they lie?”
“Why? To scare you idiots! Didn’t you see what he had on him? Didn’t you see large his bag was? How much do you think is inside it? Also, he, Ye Lian and that long haired girl were all holding sabers! What kind of weapons are we using now? Baseball bats and dismantled metal poles! If we had better weapons, would so many people have died?”
Xu Cai’s tirade had caused his spittle to fly all over the place and left his face red from the agitation, “It’s afternoon now and they’re likely exhausted. Coupled with the fact that they’re bringing along an invalid, chances are they won’t be leaving this place tonight…”
“Are you implying that…” Another person tried to sound out Xu Cai’s intention.
Xu Cai clenched his fist and raised it in flash, his eyes filled with unconcealed viciousness, “Tell me, do you guys think it’s easier to steal from the living, or from zombies?”
The dojo was immediately filled with silence.
