This way, to the Great Wu Country, Qin Wushuang’s secret of being in the Upper Sky Realm would no longer exist. It would not serve as a surprise attack.
On the other hand, by going through the shame of crawling under the crotch, Qi Yinfeng would definitely not cry to the Third Palace Master by swallowing his own teeth. After all, going under the crotch was not a thing to bring up.
Xi Men Xing crossed his arms over his chest and watched these guys crawl under his crotch one after another with a smile.
Initially, these martial arts students from the Great Wu were arrogant and obstinate figures. However, they were the ones that had started this matter. Besides leaving the Stargaze Palace, they could only bear this shame.
Naturally, Qi Yinfeng’s expression was like a broken weather as he did not want to go through such shame. However, the situation was set. Regardless of his toughness and his background, it would not change the fact that he had lost.
A general whose army was defeated could not count himself as brave. Except if he were to commit suicide, or else, he must bear this great shame to get through the day.
Qi Yinfeng’s chest went up and down. He wanted to fight regardless of his injuries, but the injuries on his chest told him that he would only face death if he were to fight. He would not find any advantage.
He remembered his grandfather’s reminders before his departure: "In the Great Luo Empire, many elite warriors reside there. Yinfeng, you must not only bear the loneliness, you must also be flexible. A great man would only achieve great accomplishments after enduring the temporary shame. In the world of martial arts training, there will always be someone better than you. If you were to fight, you must fight for the benefits, and not for pride…"
"Bear the temporary shame to achieve greatness…" These comforting thoughts kept emerging in Qi Yinfeng’s head, "To wash the shame today, I must bear it and train hard. If I were to remain stubborn and forceful, it would give the other party an excuse to kill me…"
When he thought here, he lowered his head, bit his teeth and went under it with eyes closed.
Xi Men Xing laughed: "I wonder how that old man, Qi Shengnan, would feel if he could see this scene? Ha ha ha!"
Initially, Xi Men Xing’s personality was never this bold. However, after getting wounded by the people from the Great Wu, a wave of anger had accumulated internally. Of course, he had been depressed.
Naturally, he had felt extremely satisfied watching someone like Qi Yinfeng crawling under his crotch.
Now, Wan Jinpeng, He Zichong and the others were dumbfounded as they watched this scene. They never expected that tonight’s situation would end this way!
Before coming here, they had made mental preparations. If they were to lose, they must survive while bearing the shame in the Stargaze Palace.
However, the reality was completely different than what they had expected. The ones that were to bear the shame had turned out to be people of the Great Wu. And they did not even have the chance to make a move.
Now, Wan Jinpeng and the others looked at Qin Wushuang with a few more traces of admiration.
They already knew that Qin Wushuang was strong. However, they did not expect that he would be this powerful. What kind of person was Qi Yinfeng? He was the grandson to the Martial Saint of the Great Wu Country. In the end, he was defeated and was forced to accept the shame of crawling under one’s crotch.
"Marquis Wushuang, this time, I am deeply impressed!" He Zichong gave a long sigh.
"Yes, since we won this fight, it would be much easier for us to survive in the Stargaze Palace. At least, these martial arts students from the Great Wu will never provoke us again," Wan Jinpeng said ruefully.
"Haha, it was so good to see the expression on Qi Yinfeng."
Watching each of them brimming with joy, Qin Wushuang said: "Everyone, go back to train. Do not mind the win and loss at this time. I plan to return to the Bai Yue Country, goodbye for now."
"Return to the Bai Yue Country?" Xi Men Xing said with surprise.
"Yes, everyone, goodbye." Qin Wushuang cupped his hands and turned to leave.
"Qin, on the eighth day of the twelfth month, the sect will gather to prepare for the end of the year exam. Why are you returning to the Bai Yue country right now?" He Zichong was curious.
"There is more than a month of time, it is enough to make a round trip."
Qin Wushuang waved his hand and in a few jumps, he had disappeared from everyone’s views.
Wan Jinpeng sighed: "The strength of this Marquis Wushuang was deep and immeasurable! Perhaps, he was already close to the Upper Sky Realm?"
Both Tong Yan and Xi Men Xing shook their heads with a smile. They did not join their conversation. Since Qin Wushuang did not state it himself, of course, it was not appropriate for them to expose his exact strength.
After this fight, the six of them became closer. Their bond had become much tighter after this fight.
With the cover of darkness, Qin Wushuang walked out of the Virtuous Cloud Mountain Range towards the outside world. Along the way, he did not stop and rushed through the journey day and night. In seven days, he returned to Bai Yue country’s borders. By travelling from the north to the south, he must go through the imperial capital. Qin Wushuang decided to pay a visit to the Martial Saint and get to know the current general situation.
After five or six months, Qin Wushuang felt everything was different after returning to the imperial capital. To avoid drawing too much attention, Qin Wushuang suppressed his Upper Sky presence along the way and walked to the gate of the imperial gate like any normal martial artists.
He planned to stay at an inn at the imperial capital to settle in. Next, he would go visit the Martial Saint at the Martial Saint Mountain.
Just when Qin Wushuang was about to reveal his identity as he approached the gate, he heard a wave of noisy arguments emerge from inside.
Qin Wushuang looked toward the location the sound had come from. He saw a few riders sitting on a few tall horses and was having a quarrel with the guards of the city gate. There were three riders and all rode on white horses with silver saddles that showcased extravagance. However, regarding their clothing, it appeared foreign and apparently, they were not people from the Bai Yue.
He only saw that they had eagle-like noses and was unwilling to get down from the horse with an arrogant attitude. They sat on the horses and looked on those city gate guards.
"Three guests, this is our rules in the Bai Yue Country. For the horses to get into the city, all riders must walk to prevent chaos. If you three want to get out of the city, we would not stop you. However, please walk for a little bit. Outside of the city gate, you can ride freely."
That little captain of the city gate guards said with a tone that was neither servile nor overbearing. However, he had showed his apparent attitude and would not allow them to go.
Revealing a faint smile, those three seemed that they knew the rule. However, they still sat on the horses and showed no signs of getting off the horse.
One of the rider smiled coldly: "The rules from the West Chu Country were that riders do not need to get down from the horse. We can enter and leave at free will."
"West Chu Country?" Qin Wushuang was stunned. Representatives from the West Chu?
The West Chu Country resided on the north-west location of the Bai Yue Country. They were also a Subordinate Country in the Great Luo Empire. However, they had always been an Upper Ranking country and its vast land and rich talent pool had always suppressed the Bai Yue Country.
Thus, to the West Chu, the Bai Yue Country was lower than them and it was not hard to understand that they were appearing forceful. Only, the West Chu never had much interaction with the Bai Yue. Most likely, they had come with ill-intentions.
While Qin Wushuang dwelled on the thought, those three people urged the horses and was about to charge forward.
That captain of the guard opened both of his arms and was going to use his body to block the path. He yelled: "Three honored guests, although you guys came from the West Chu, please remember, this is the Bai Yue Country. You must follow the rules of the country! In my imperial capital, beneath the feet of the Emperor, we shall not allow anyone to do whatever they want!"
Those three looked at each other and showed a face without the slightest scruple. They pulled the reins and charged forward regardless of the captain.
That captain was also swift and fierce as he did not walk away and yelled: "Those who dare to forcefully break through the gate, kill without mercy!"
He pulled out the sword from his waist and all the guards from the left and right of the gate pulled out their weapons towards those three horses.
Although they were yelling kill without mercy, these guards worked with mutual understanding. They only attacked the horses and did not harm the people on the horses.
Only, it was apparent that the strength of these three people were much higher than these gate guards. The man on the front raised his whip and casually waved it, one only heard waves of crispy "Pa Pa Pa" sound.
On the face of a dozen city guards, a red whip mark appeared on it.
With a loud laugh, he used the long whip again and wrapped it around the neck of that captain like a poisonous dragon. He sneered: "You dared to speak the three words of "Kill without mercy." Just these words can make you die ten times!"
After he had finished, he shook the whip and swept that captain of the guards.
In fact, the strength of this captain was at the Stage Six of the Genuine Force. After getting swept by the whip, he could not evade it and was unable to fight back as his neck was trapped.
The rider on the horse laughed and waved his arm. Already, he raised the long whip and threw the captain within it towards the high gate that was a few metres wide.
If he had threw him genuinely, even a person with an steel limb and an iron body would break into pieces.
Amid waves of shocked yells, a figure floated out of nowhere like lightning. He pulled with hand and dragged the body of the captain before a metre to the wall. He supported him lightly and put him back to the ground.
On the other hand, he used one of his and grabbed that ghost like whip easily.
After escaping from death, that captain of the guards broke out in cold sweat. He stood on the side and still felt the aftermath. Yet, he straightened the curved blade on his hand and yelled: "All guards on the gate get down! Send someone to inform the Senior captain that some people were trying to break through the gate by force!"
After he had finished, he bowed to the person who had saved his life: "Thank you for saving my life, I dare to ask for guidance!"
Of course, the one who had made the move was Qin Wushuang who was standing on the side to observe.
"No need to cause a fuss." Qin Wushuang said lightly, "Go stand on the side."
Inwardly, that captain already emerged some respects when he saw Qin Wushuang’s powerful temperament. He knew that this person should be the elite warrior from the Bai Yue Country and became much calmer. It would be good to solve the matter with a powerful warrior from their own country.
Qin Wushuang raised his head and looked that person with the whip coldly: "You are a guest from the West Chu. Are all of you this tyrannical and oppressive to the host?"
That rider glanced at Qin Wushuang with an arrogant attitude and asked boldly: "Who might you be?"
Instead of getting angry, Qin Wushuang laughed and nodded: "Don’t ask me who I am. Who are you, and to whom are you working for? Before the imperial gate of my Bai Yue Country, you dare to act with such arrogance?"
