“Pretty girl, look at this man, he does not even have the courage to protect you . You’d better follow us . On this piece of land, we’ll give you whatever you want,” the soldier let out a hearty guffaw, looking down at Ye Lang and speaking in a mocking tone .
“Protect? It’s just a few of you bastards, I don’t need protecting yet,” said Li Yue flatly without a hint of anger . No one could tell if she was indifferent or suppressing her anger .
“Li Yue, are they bastards?” asked Ye Lang .
“Can’t you tell? They’re using their position to bully us regular commoners . They were teasing me just now, how could you be so oblivious, you didn’t know?!” Li Yue wanted to punch him .
“Teasing? Didn’t they only say they want to spend time with you?”
“That’s teasing . They want me, a girl, to spend a night with them alone . What do you think they’ll do?” Li Yue said calmly without anger because she was already used to this .
“Talk, drink wine, play games?” Ye Lang was very innocent, he did not think much of it .
“They want me to sleep with them, do you understand now?” Li Yue said very directly . She was a soldier, she was used to being direct if necessary .
“So what if you’re sleeping, both of us hug each other…” when Ye Lang arrived at this point,
Li Yue blushed furiously . She didn’t know he knew of this too .
Just as she was going to stop him from talking, his tone changed abruptly . “Eh? That’s not right, we both know each other well so we can do that… These people… fuck, they’re teasing you!”
“ . . . You just realised? So what now?” Li Yue was exhausted . How slow could he be?
“Kill them? But that doesn’t seem good . We can beat them up, teach them a lesson . That seems more normal,” Ye Lang said as he regarded the soldiers .
Everyone fell silent, no one expected Ye Lang to talk about them as if they were a fish on a chopping board . How dare he talk about killing them in their faces?
In a moment, the soldiers erupted in laughter- condescending laughter .
“What are you laughing at? Are you masochists? We said we were going to beat you up and you’re so happy about it,” asked Ye Lang blankly .
“Hahaha, your jokes are hilarious! Not bad, not bad . We’ll show you mercy later when we beat you up . We’ll only cripple you, we won’t kill you!” there were roars and roars of laughter .
At the same time, the passersby near them were secretly shaking their heads . Such a beautiful young couple, it was a pity they offended these people . These were the higher-ranked soldiers who often bullied civilians .
These soldiers guarding the gates were not popular among the civilians, it was obvious from their attitude .
They were usually smart about it- for example, they would not offend people who shouldn’t be offended . However, these two people looked weak to them .
First, Ye Lang and Li Yue were travelling alone with no entourage . Although they both wore high-quality clothing, they did not have extravagant tastes so their clothes were very toned-down and common .
Plus they were dusty from their travels, it was easy to mistake them for poorer folk .
As for the lion, although it was a peculiar one, the soldiers had encountered many commoners hunting wild beasts, sometimes to tame them for a living .
That was why the lion did not make the soldiers feel like they were aristocrats . Instead, they thought the two were either hunters or tamers (which were lowly jobs to them) . Yep, lowly .
“I’m not joking! Also, you all cannot beat us in a fight, right Li Yue?” Ye Lang smiled as he turned to Li Yue very calmly . The soldiers and the passersby did think this expression was odd .
What if these two were actually skilled fighters?
“You want me to fight, right? You’re so lazy,” said Li Yue calmly, a look of nonchalance as if she was indifferent to being picked to fight . As if it was no problem .
“What level warriors are you both? What attributes?” asked the soldiers . In this universe filled with trained masters, anyone could be a warrior or a magician .
These soldiers had made mistakes before too . Although the two looked like regular people, not warriors, their tone made the soldiers hesitate .
They had to distinguish whether these two were just people who weren’t afraid of death or expert fighters .
“I’m not a warrior, I do not have any attributes . Li Yue, what level are you?” Ye Lang said shaking his head . He wasn’t a martial artist, he never took the exams .
“I’m a level 6, wind attribute…” answered Li Yue . In terms of the official levels, she was only a level seven though this was many years ago when she took the exam . She had been training in the military after that so she had no time to take more exams .
One wasn’t a warrior, the other a mere level 6… Everyone there was at least level 5 and the leader was a level 8 . Defeating these two beginners was nothing to them .
The soldiers started to calculate their odds . They felt like these two were newborn calves, they were beginners!
“So the pretty girl’s a level six warrior . Not bad… You’re so young, you’ll definitely be able to achieve more . You should come along with the Tanlang military group, you’ll have stellar results in no time . As for this kid, toss him aside . He’s not even a fighter, plus he’s a useless idiot with no attributes . ”
“Yeah miss, you shouldn’t follow him . You won’t have any future . ”
More and more soldiers looked down on Ye Lang . When they knew he was a person with no attributes, they grew more reckless with their insults .
In this mainland, people with no attributes can practise martial arts and magic but they would not attain impressive results .
“I don’t want to follow him around either but he kidnapped me so I had no choice,” she said with a smile, eyeing Ye Lang .
If anyone who knew her witnessed this, they would have their jaws on the floor . Never would they imagine Li Yue to be a person who told jokes!
The soldiers were stunned for a moment . They never would’ve thought this was the relationship between Li Yue and Ye Lang, that he kidnapped her .
At this point, the soldiers were happier than ever . If she said she was kidnapped, then they had a legitimate reason to take her!
Pretty girl, I’m here to save you!
However, they did not think about why a level 6 warrior like Li Yue could be kidnapped by Ye Lang with no attributes . Unless Li Yue was willing, Ye Lang might not be as useless as they thought .
