Although Qin Lianchuan had received serious injuries, he regained his spirits when he heard this voice: "It's Young Master, Young Master has returned!"
"Brother Lianchuan, how are you?" From outside, Qin Lianshan's voice sounded especially caring.
"The Patriarch is also back!"
All the guards cheered as their spirits were lifted. All of them yelled and fought back against the Xu since their fighting spirit had surged up a huge amount.
Terror-stricken, Xu Sanli immediately shouted when he heard Qin Wushuang's voice: "Retreat!"
Since you got here, how could you leave so quickly?
Qin Wushuang plugned into the manor like a springing arrow. He jumped a few times in midair and immediately landed among the people of the Xu. With each palm and fist attack he threw out, a person from the Xu would fall just like a sheep fighting encountering a lion.
When he noticed that casualties among the family guards, a burning rage filled Qin Lianshan's eyes. Now, only one thing occupied in his mind—
Tonight, those who dared to charge into my Qin house must die!
Xu Sanli felt extremely distressed when he saw his people fall like wheat to a sickle.
However, hatred had already taken ahold of Qin Wushuang, how could he let it end so quickly?
Qin Wushuang instantly broke the skull of one of the Xu people into pieces.
He raised his arm as he continued to walk toward his next target. Xu Sanli's pupils widened, and he shouted hysterically: "No!"
Qin Wushuang's five fingers had already caught someone. He looked closer and saw it was Xu Yuan, son of Xu Sanli.
The current Xu Yuan, where had all his sense of superiority as a Stage One Genuine Force Warrior gone? Where was the courage from when he was killing the guards of the Qin? Acting like a helpless little lamb, he shuddered with fear as despair filled in his eyes. His entire body trembled and his lips looked greenish.
"Xu Yuan, right? How could you deserve to be named one of the Seven Young Masters of River County? Last time, you let Zhang Yao die for you in the River Square. Today, who will die for you?"
Xu Yuan could only cough in response since Qin Wushuang had siezed his throat. Both of his hands flailed in panic. He wanted to catch Qin Wushuang but could not reach him. His eyeballs had almost popped from its sockets.
"Qin Wushuang, no!"
When his people had died, he did not feel anything. However, his son was his flesh and blood, how could he not feel the pain? Xu Sanli yelled hysterically, waved the long sword and rushed to attack Qin Wushuang like a madman.
Qin Wushuang smiled viciously: "Your son is a human being, and my people, weren't any one of them raised by their parents, are they also not people? Since you charged into my home to kill, you must have the resolve to die!"
As soon as Qin Wushuang had finished speaking, he used power from his five fingers and broke Xu Yuan's neck.
"Qin Wushuang, I want you to die!" Xu Sanli charged forward like a madman when he saw his son slowly crumple to the floor. The long sword flew as he slashed dozens of times. Each attack contained the ruthless power of a mighty warrior at Stage Five of the Genuine Force.
Only, in Qin Wushuang's eyes, how much difference was there between a Stage Five and Xu Yuan?
With a quick glance, he already saw through the many flaws within Xu Sanli's sword attacks. These were not significant flaws, but to Qin Wushuang, who was a grandmaster, these were fatal ones.
His body flashed and he evaded the edge of the blade. He shot out his elbow at a lightning-quick speed and bumped on Xu Sanli's arm. Immediately, Xu Sanli felt as if his body was struck by lightning.
His strength left his hand, and Qin Wushuang instantly siezed the sword and leveled it against Xu Sanli's neck.
Qin Wushuang yelled: "Uncle Lianchuan, is this the scumbag that had chopped off your arm?"
Qin Lianchuan was stunned, then he said with hatred: "It is that scumbag."
Qin Wushuang exclaimed as a trace of an evil grin emerged from the corner of his mouth. With a flash of green light, he slashed twice. The sword slashed down on both sides of Xu Sanli's body.
Xu Sanli immediately tried to dodge. However, he did not expect that Qin Wushuang's sword attacks were very tricky, its speed was beyond Xu Sanli's comprehension.
A blood light flashed, and two arms flew away from where Qin Wushuang had slashed the sword.
Qin Wushuang gave a long hiss: "Uncle Lianchuan, are you satisfied, to have earned the interest along with capital?"
Although Qin Lianchuan felt a lot of pain from his wound, he laughed: "Yes, yes."
The pain penetrated Xu Sanli. He had lost both of his arms. He struggled on the ground since he had not yet died.
And with the sword in his hand, Qin Wushuang was like a tiger that had grown wings. He charged across the battlefield, instantly killing numerous people of the Xu and arrived in front of Elder Yue, blocking Elder Yue's strike. He shouted: "Old man, you've also killed a lot of individuals today, right?"
The truth was, Elder Yue had still stepped forward even though he knew he would not live. He shouted: "Xu Zhou, Xu Ting, hurry and leave!"
Both Xu Zhou and Xu Ting grew extremely impatient when they saw father and brothers were beaten. When they heard the order from Elder Yue, they suddenly remembered the family survival plan, and they all rushed to make their exit.
Qin Wushuang gave a cold sneer, feet moving rapidly, the tip of his feet kicked up two discarded blades from the ground into the air. He channeled his Genuine Qi and sent the swords shooting after the two Xu offsprings.
One should not underestimate these two kicks. It seemed simple, but the power that shot out was no less than the power shot from a big bow. How could those two's escape speed be faster than the speed of these sharp blades?
Before they had realized, with two "Pu Pu" clear sound, the blades had pierced their bodies from behind. The momentum of the blades also carried their corpses forward and nailed their bodies to the ground.
Qin Lianchuan used one hand to cover his broken arm and watched everything with a dumbfounded look. His face was full of astonishment.
A moment ago, he had fully experienced the strength and viciousness of this group of enemies. Particularly those who had just been killed by the Young Master were all mighty warriors at the Genuine Force stage. Even a group of archers could not harm them at all with the rain of arrows.
However, such powerful warriors before the Young Master was like a chicken encountering a hawk. Besides trying to escape with their lives, they had no power to resist.
Amidst his movements, he had already killed a dozen instantly. Those who received his attacks fell dead, there was not a shred of mercy in the attacks.
When those Genuine Force Warriors had cleared off, the pressure was instantly lifted on the Qin's family guards. With a greater number, they disassembled the bodies of the Xu people with quick sword cuts.
There were no miracles to be had from Elder Yue. Although he used all of his strength to attack Qin Wushuang, he was helpless to preventg Qin Wushuang from his killing speed.
The more he fought with all his might, the more flaw he showed. Compared to Xu Sanli, Elder Yue was weaker. In front of Qin Wushuang, of course, he could not resist.
Qin Wushuang also sent out two sword attacks, the same as what he had done to Xu Sanli. Soon, Elder Yue's arms was also detached from his shoulders.
As soon as Elder Yue had fallen, all the remaining elite warriors of the Xu quickly retreated. The guards instantly killed the rest of the useless troops.
The entire battle had ended in less than fifteen minutes. However, the bitterness of the battle left the guards in a heightened state of sensitivity.
Each and every one of them looked at this Qin Wushuang with admiration. Initially, they were determined to die for the family. Unexpectedly, it was the Young Master, who had always been bullied in River County, that had saved them from despair.
All the guards became silent when they looked at the floor full of bodies and blood. They organized their comrades' corpses and threw a few more vengeful stabs into the corpses of the Xu.
"Patriarch Qin… Please forgive me, spare me…"
An extremely inharmonious sound of begging made Qin Wushuang glance around in surprise.
How could it be him?
The begging person was that Gou Sheng who had came as a negotiator with Xu Sihai and Jin Buyi a while back. This guy had made his living through his negotiating skills. How could he have followed the Xu here?
"Gou Sheng?" In the dark, Qin Lianshan also recognized this person.
"It's me, it's me! Patriarch Qin, Brother Lianshan, it's me, Gou Sheng," Gou Sheng begged with a sad face as he only wanted to live.
"Mr. Gousheng, are you here to point a way out for my Qin? Or do you want to drop the stones and spit me on the face?"
Qin Lianshan remembered how a few years ago Gou Sheng had accompanied Xu Sihai and Jin Buyi to mock and ridicule the Qin in their own home. Since the day they threatened them, Qin Lianshan had kept his anger and hatred buried until now..
Gou Sheng's face turning bloodless as he started to kowtow: "Lianshan, it was a misunderstanding, a misconception! It was Xu Sanli; he kidnapped me."
"Kidnapped you?" Qin Wushuang walked over with a cold sneer, "You, do you even deserve to be kidnapped by Xu Sanli? Most likely, you followed with your butt to my Qin house of your own free-will, right?"
"I am wronged, really, this is a false accusation." Although Gou Sheng denied the accusations as false, inwardly, he was endlessly bitching. It was exactly as Qin Wushuang had said, how could Xu Sanli have kidnapped him, a lowly-being that made a living through his negotiation skills? Only, he had followed the Xu stubbornly because he was afraid the Qin would come to him for trouble.
Qin Lianshan said: "Wushuang, say no more, just kill him."
Gou Sheng was terrified as he said: "No no no, don't kill me, I… I have valuable information!"
"What sort of information?" Qin Wushuang lifted Gou Sheng up and said harshly: "If your information is meaningful, I will forgive your lowly life; if it's rubbish, hmph…"
"Not rubbish, definitely not."
Qin Wushuang said lightly: "Speak!"
Gou Sheng hurried to speak: "The Xu are betraying Bai Yue Country, and is going to rely on the Great Wu country!"
Qin Wushuang felt that there was more to come from this Gou Sheng.
"The people of the Xu had split into several groups to destroy your land, fish mills, shops and oil mill."
Qin Wushuang angrily glared.He indeed felt that the current numbers from the Xu were only one of the three portion. They had, in fact, split their group.
"Come, tie up those who are not dead," Qin Wushuang gave the order.
Gou Sheng, armless Elder Yue, and Xu Sanli were the only ones that were alive.
Qin Wushuang did not kill Xu Sanli not because he was kind, but because he had other intentions and ruthless methods he wanted to use next.
"Father, our lands are in a distant area and the biggest foundation of our family. I am going to rush over, and I think I can make it."
"Ok, Wushuang, be careful when you go in the dark. I am going to bring people to stop them at our shops and oil mill. If I cannot make it, I will stop the fire. Hopefully, we can minimize the damage! The fish mill and lands are along the way. If you can help, then help. If not, we can still take some damage."
At this critical moment, Qin Lianshan had showcased the temperament and bearing that a Patriarch should possess. He sent out an order: "Half of the guards will stay here to protect the home; the other half, come with me."
Qin Wushuang rushed next to Qin Lianchuan: "Uncle Lianchuan, stop the blood first and protect the broken arm. Return, I will think of a way to patch it together."
He moved his fingers and blocked the acupoints on Qin Lianchuan's shoulder, under the armpits, and back to prevent too much blood loss.
After he had finished this, Qin Wushuang gave a long hiss, as his body flashed and he flew outside the house. Like an eastern bean goose, he disappeared.
Qin Lianchuan and the rest of the guards watched him dumbfounded.
