Cosmic Professional Gladiator - Chapter 368
Chapter 368: Xu Jingming’s Arrival (3)
Xu Jingming nodded.
It was indeed possible to hire a group of powerful guards to rebel and plunder outside the city.
“Therefore, we need experts on our side,” Old Master Fei said with a smile. “I’m really happy to know that you’re back.”
Mr. Jing was a super expert!
“With you in charge and Guard Lu and Guard Qiu leading the other guards, I have the confidence to hire some people,” Old Master Fei said. “I only have one thought—escort my daughter, Xinlan, out of the capital!”
“Escort Miss Fei?” Xu Jingming came to a realization.
“Qing’er is dead, and I have one foot in the coffin,” Old Master Fei said. “Now, I just want Xinlan to leave the capital—this huge whirlpool of death. The capital will become more and more chaotic in the future, so she needs to leave.”
“Alright.” Xu Jingming nodded. “I owe Lord Fei Qing plenty, so I’ll naturally do my best to protect Miss Fei.”
He also planned on getting these experts from China to leave the capital. The capital would be in chaos in the future, and it wasn’t suitable for China’s experts to take root here.
“You’re the one who has done our Fei family a favor.” Old Master Fei was pleased to hear Xu Jingming’s agreement. “Many people have turned their backs on us at this time. I’m eternally grateful that you’re willing to escort Xinlan.”
Just as the two of them were talking, there was a sudden series of knocks on the residence door, causing the guards to open the door in confusion.
A short man outside the door rushed over and said anxiously, “Master, something bad has happened!”
“What’s the matter?” Old Master Fei frowned slightly at him.
“Dean Ming from the capital’s Martial Academy has passed away. King Qi sent someone to Martial Academy and abducted Miss Fei,” the short man stated.
“What!” Old Master Fei’s face turned pale. “Xinlan…”
“We were hiding in the capital, so we couldn’t be kept abreast of the latest news. King Qi’s residence learned of Dean Ming’s death immediately and sent people to take Miss Fei away,” the short man said. “It was already too late when we learned of it.”
“Are you sure Xinlan was brought to King Qi’s residence?” Old Master Fei asked.
“Yes!” The short man said, “King Qi’s residence sent many people to Martial Academy to abduct Miss Fei. Many people saw it with their own eyes. We also investigated and confirmed that Miss Fei was eventually brought into King Qi’s residence.”
Old Master Fei reeled with anxiety when he heard that. “Xinlan would’ve been on tenterhooks if she was with me, so I got her to stay in Martial Academy. With Dean Ming around, she would be very safe. I just didn’t expect Dean Ming to die!”
“We have to think of a way to save Xinlan.” Old Master Fei anxiously looked at Guard Qiu and Guard Lu.
The gray-shirted man said seriously, “Master, there are many experts in King Qi’s residence, and there are more than 1,000 qualified experts. There’s even a famous super expert, Liu Yunchen. There are even hidden traps in the residence. The entire King Qi’s residence is no less than a military fortress. With our numbers, we’ll only be throwing our lives away. We won’t be able to stir up any waves!”
“Yes.” The silver-haired elder shook his head as well. “Liu Yunchen isn’t an ordinary super expert! He has been a super expert for more than 30 years, and his strength is unfathomable. King Qi has even taken him as his master, and there are also a large number of qualified experts… King Qi’s residence is on extremely high alert. After capturing Miss, they will definitely be even more vigilant.”
“Then, what should we do?” Old Master Fei said anxiously. “I only have one daughter. We have to save her at all costs!”
Guard Qiu and Guard Lu shook their heads slightly.
There was no hope at all. It was completely suicidal!
Their subordinates wouldn’t be willing to attempt the rescue.
“Leave this to me,” Xu Jingming said.
Old Master Fei was stunned.
Guard Lu and Guard Qiu looked at Xu Jingming in disbelief. Leave it to you? That is King Qi’s residence!
“Brother Jing,” Guard Qiu immediately said, “even though you’re a super expert, there are still differences in strength between super experts… Liu Yunchen earned his reputation from his kills. Moreover, there are more than a thousand qualified experts in the entire residence!”
“There’s no need to do something suicidal,” Guard Lu said.
“Of course, I’m not strong enough.” Xu Jingming said, “I’ll ask my master and the others for help.”
“Master?” Old Master Fei, Guard Lu, and Guard Qiu were surprised.
“My master’s strength far exceeds mine.” Xu Jingming nodded. “It’s not a problem to kill Liu Yunchen! I’ll ask my master and the experts of my sect for help!”
“All these experts will be risking their lives to save my daughter from King Qi’s residence,” Old Master Fei said excitedly. “I don’t have much to offer, so I can only fork out 100,000 taels of silver first! After you save her, I’ll hand over another 100,000 taels of silver with both hands. I know… this bit of silver is too little for you to attack King Qi’s residence, but my hands are tied now. I hope you don’t mind, Mr. Jing.”
“I’ll get the money after I save Miss Fei.” Xu Jingming got up. “There’s no time to lose. I’ll immediately meet my master and save Miss Fei as soon as possible.”
With that said, he walked out.
Old Master Fei was extremely touched.
“He’s taking the silver only after the matter is done.” Guard Lu watched Xu Jingming leave before saying, “Brother Jing shames us all.”
“Brother Jing’s sect has to pay a huge price to save Miss Fei from King Qi,” Guard Qiu said. “Perhaps some of his fellow disciples will die in the king’s residence. Since we’ve agreed to give him 200,000 taels of silver, we can’t let him down.”
Old Master Fei nodded as well. “I hope they can save Xinlan.”
“I’ll also lead some people to watch the estate in secret. I can provide backup at critical moments,” Guard Qiu said.
“Go.” Old Master Fei nodded.
The sky turned dark.
Xu Jingming came to the street outside King Qi’s residence and looked at it from afar. Sect? Just me is enough! Ever since I learned the Primordial Star Conjecture, my spear hasn’t seen blood!
Xu Jingming’s heart was filled with killing intent. King Qi’s residence had traps, and a large number of experts patrolled the area.
To him, having more people was a hindrance. He was more confident in doing things alone.
He wasn’t in a hurry. Instead, he ate five kilograms of meat and drank a lot of alcohol at a street stall. At the same time, his cellular control allowed him to digest the food and have enough energy reserves.
It couldn’t be helped; a massacre later would consume a lot of energy. If he didn’t eat more, he would become skin and bones after a long fight.
That’s roughly it. Xu Jingming paid and left the stall.
It was already completely dark.
King Qi’s residence occupied a large area, and the courtyard walls spanned a wide area. Xu Jingming walked to a relatively remote corner of the courtyard wall and first removed the spear holster from his back. He then attached and twisted the two spear segments before locking them in place.
With the spear in hand, Xu Jingming silently leaped over the courtyard wall and entered King Qi’s residence.
