Chapter 24 Revenge in Just a Day
Long Chen had originally just been drinking wine calmly. But now his face turned cold and blue veins jumped out of his hands.
That voice was very familiar to Long Chen. The familiarity caused Long Chen's killing intent to explode out, and this strangeness was noticed by everyone.
"Brother Long, what's going on?" asked Fatty Yu. Seeing him in his murderous state, he immediately awoke from his tipsy state.
"Don't worry about it. When that person comes up, just act really annoying. Keep focus on celebrating with Shi Feng and put on a show of it," said Long Chen.
Everyone realized Long Chen was wanting to make a disturbance. Currently they all had the support of their families and were told to form good relations with Long Chen as best they could. How could they let such a good opportunity go?
"Brother Long, just watch." Shou Hou patted his chest confidently.
The footsteps continued getting closer. A man in his twenties wearing a strange hat and long eyebrows entered the room.
Long Chen didn't reveal his face and he also told Aman not to either. The two of them had their backs facing that person.
After that person came up, a bitter-faced man also came up behind him. He appeared to be the restaurant's shopkeeper.
"Get them all out. Otherwise I'll blame you." That man didn't even place Long Chen's group within his arrogant eyes.
Obviously he felt that personally shooing them would reduce his status so he had the shopkeeper do it.
"Oh my, have you guys noticed there's a weiner growing out of his head?" Shou Hou said quietly to Fatty Yu.
Although it was said quietly, it wasn't a whisper. Anyone there could hear it completely clearly.
Long Chen smiled. The strange hat on that man's head did have a long protuberance at the front. At first he hadn't noticed, but once Shou Hou said it, he realized it really was similar.
"It's nothing to make a fuss about. I bet his dad was too corrupt and other people cursed it there." Fatty Yu looked somewhat disdainfully at Shou Hou.
"What?" asked Shou Hou confused.
"Wow, have you not heard the curse before? They curse you to have a son with a penis growing on his head?"
"Oh, brother really is wise," Shou Hou said admiringly.
When the shopkeeper saw everyone jeer and taunt this person, he turned pale with fright and quickly cast a meaningful look at Shi Feng.
Unfortunately, Shi Feng, who had a slight relationship with the shopkeeper, didn't pay him any attention and acted as if he had never met him.
That long-eyebrowed man's face became cold immediately, and he icily looked at Fatty Yu. "Damn fatass pig, are you guys looking to die?"
Fatty Yu shook his head. "Brother, seeing your bitter face, I can easily tell that someone close to you must have died. Was it your father? Your mother? Either way, now's not the time to eat and drink here."
"Right, that's too unfilial."
"Such a son should be directly thrown into the streets."
"Shh, stop. Don't you see him trembling? If we keep talking, he might go crazy and start foaming at the mouth. Then how will we be able to drink enjoy ourselves?"
The power of teamwork was very great with them. Everyone heard Fatty Yu and Shou Hous taunts so they all inserted their own ridicule. They definitely had to at least contribute their own jokes at such an opportunity.
With a short cry, a long whip appeared in that person's hand. Wind howled with a biting cold killing intent. As it crashed down upon them, everyone realized that that whip had them all in range.
Shi Feng had long since been prepared for this. With just a touch on his belt, a blade slashed out.
The long blade and the flexible whip collided, emitting an explosive sound. Shi Feng felt a huge power hit him that sent him flying into the roof, shaking the entire restaurant.
His face turned slightly red due to an internal injury, a sign that his Blood Qi was about to overflow out of his control. He had shockingly been beaten in just one attack.
"Go die urchins."
After that first attack, his whip became like a poisonous dragon, immediately turning rigid and appearing like a sword stabbing towards Shi Feng's heart.
This shocked everyone; they hadn't expected this person to be so ruthless. He was clearly intent on killing Shi Feng!
That whip was too fast and Shi Feng was unable to dodge it. Just when he thought he was about to die…
A large hand tightly grabbed the whip. It was now completely unable to move.
Everyone cried out as Long Chen appeared beside Shi Feng. He appeared like a king amongst men as he coldly looked at that man.
He couldn't help being startled when he saw that it was Long Chen.
"Good, you still remember me."
A cold smile appeared on Long Chen's face. He suddenly pulled on the whip and the man was startled to feel a huge force involuntarily pull him flying towards Long Chen.
He was slightly startled, never expecting Long Chen's strength to be so great. Even a first Heavenstage of Blood Condensation expert like him couldn't resist.
He sneered, and borrowing the force from being pulled over by Long Chen, he raised his leg and aimed it for Long Chen's stomach. His reactions were so quick that it dazzled and confused the others. This person was obviously a true expert.
Seeing his rushing over, Long Chen also sent a kick out. Its speed wasn't that great, but it was perfectly timed such that it viciously landed on that person's crotch right before his attack reached Long Chen's stomach.
The sound of something exploding caused everyone else's groins to turn cold. Goosebumps arose all along their backs.
A miserable scream resounded through the restaurant. Everyone who heard that cry had their hair stand on end.
But even such a blood-curdling cry was unable to relieve his pain.
He rolled on the ground fiercely, his face contorted in pain, screaming.
Due to these intense movements, his hat suddenly fell off, and Fatty Yu and the others' expressions all changed.
"Someone from the Grand Xia Empire?"
When the hat came off, it revealed an extremely ancient hair bun like a stretched out thumb. It was no wonder his hat was so strange.
That hair bun was a mark of the Grand Xia. Only nobles with high status would style their hair like that.
Everyone looked at each other in dismay, realizing they had provoked a huge disaster here. The Grand Xia and the Phoenix Cry Empire had a good relationship, and such an action could even influence the relations between the two countries. The consequences would be very severe.
Looking at the rolling man, the suppressed anger inside Long Chen loosened slightly. He handed the whip to Aman and said, "He hit you. You can hit him back now."
"Hit someone? I can't." Aman hesitated.
Long Chen's face darkened. "You won't listen to me?"
"I… I'll do it."
Seeing Long Chen's face darken, Aman quickly became frightened. He had only ever known how it felt to be beaten; this would be the first time he hit back. He held the whip in his hand for a long moment of hesitation, not daring to strike.
"Do it!" shouted Long Chen. He had to push Aman to take this step, otherwise he could only end up bullied for the rest of his life.
Aman took a deep breath and used the whip to attack him.
But that scream wasn't from the man with the long eyebrows. It had come from the person closest to Aman.
"Brother Aman, you have to aim better." That person had to suppress his tears as he rubbed his thigh that Aman had hit painfully.
Aman's face reddened. He had never used a whip. It was so light that he couldn't use any real force. Missing the person in front of him, he ended up hitting his neighbor.
Long Chen sighed. This child needed to temper himself.
When Long Chen shouted this, everyone immediately ran at least ten meters away. Only at that distance did they feel safer.
This time Aman had picked up a bit about how to use a whip, but he still ended up missing his target by almost three meters.
The man with the long eyebrows was still tightly holding his groin, his face twisted in pain. He didn't pay any attention to Aman's weak attacks.
"Brother Long, this time I'll definitely get it right!"
Seeing how unsightly Long Chen's face had become, Aman hastily reassured him and prepared to lash the whip again.
Just at this time, a figure appeared behind everyone. This person was in his thirties and had an exceptionally long blade scar on his face that made him appear extremely fierce.
"Stay your hand!" That man sternly shouted in fury when he saw the man lying on the floor with Aman holding a whip in his raised hand.
"Just because you tell us to stop, we're supposed to stop? Hit him," coldly ordered Long Chen.
Hearing Long Chen, Aman no longer hesitated and sent another lash towards the man.
"You're asking for it!"
Seeing Aman actually attack, he furiously stepped forward, his figure turning into a violent tempest charging towards Aman.
Long Chen also stepped forward, getting between them and punching out.
Seeing Long Chen come forward to block him, he frowned and also sent out a punch.
The air exploded when the two fists met. But what shocked the scarred man was that his fist was actually completely unable to force back this frail and scholarly looking young man.
At this time, Aman's lash finally landed. Originally he had been aiming for the man's buttocks, but due to his poor aim, it actually landed on his face.
Furthermore, it ended up landing perfectly on the nose. Although Aman didn't know how to use a whip, he still had quite a bit of physical strength. The man's nose immediately broke and blood spurted out.
Seeing this, the scarred man turned ashen with anger. With a draconian shout, he unleashed his full power to force Long Chen back.
Long Chen saw the situation and decided not to wait any longer. The FengFu Star on the bottom of his right foot shook and terrifying spiritual energy flooded out. He now used his full force.
The two of their fists offset each other, but the powerful energy was something the tiles on the floor were unable to bear and spiderweb cracks spread out.
The scarred man's expression changed when he found that Long Chen could still continue to block him when he used all his strength. Killing intent exploded out from him.
Blood Qi erupted from his body and a faint blood-colored Qi could even be seen filling the air. His frightening energy caused even the atmosphere to become heavy. The others all had some trouble breathing.
"Mid Blood Condensation stage?"
Everyone was astonished, as the degree his Blood Qi had condensed was something that only mid Blood Condensation experts were capable of.
Each major level of martial cultivation had nine minor levels that were split from the first Heavenstage to the ninth Heavenstage.
First to third Heavenstages were early stage, fourth to sixth were mid stage, and seventh to ninth were late stage. As for the scarred man in front of them, now that all his strength had exploded out, everyone realized he was a shocking mid Blood Condensation expert.
BOOM! Long Chen felt Blood Qi billow and he was forced back over three meters and his stomach started to ache.
He had finally found his limit. This person in front of him was someone he was currently not a match for. Fear and shock filled him inside.
As for that scarred man, he sent a fist flying towards Long Chen without hesitation.
"You dare attack my brother Long!"
A thunderous roar shook everyone's ears suddenly and a fist covered in blood-colored light with a surging power smashed towards the scarred man.
