Volume 4 Chapter 30: Bloodsplattered Path
On the highway, all sorts of abandoned automobiles could be seen.
The sky was already dark and the moon couldn’t be seen in the sky. The stars were looking fine, and the weak starlight they emanated barely allowed one to make out the outline of the highway. On a certain section of the highway, the four members of the thunderbolt squad were sitting on top of a toppled bus.
“Even though the young master’s training plan wasn’t entirely completed, the young master’s skill still raised by quite a bit” said the old veteran named Liu as he smiled.
“Nothing special. But it’s still quite a bit from what my dad wants” said the mixed youth, Li Wei, as he shook his head.
“Young master, for your age, you’re quite powerful already” said the old veteran named Liu. Ka Long and Pan Ya nodded in agreement.
Li Wei shook his head: “It’s not enough, not even close to enough! There are plenty of intermediate level warlords that are around 20 years old in Jiang-nan city. My parents are both powerful wargod fighters, so how can their son be so weak? Oh, also….. Pan Ya, you previously said that fire hammer squad’s Luo Feng was only 18 years old last year right? And he’s already a low level warlord! Me, the son of two great wargods, can’t even compete with some random kid?”
“Yes, yes” responded the old veteran named Liu.
“Young master, you’re the strongest” added the white brute Ka Long.
Li Wei slightly smiled.
The tiger fang captain, Pan Ya, exclaimed, “Indeed, it is as the young master says. Compared to the young master, Luo Feng isn’t even worth a dog’s ass! However, this Luo Feng is like a thorn in my side now. The fire hammer squad and tiger fang squad have always been on bad terms, and now that I’m the only person left in the tiger fang squad, the fire hammer squad will surely try to deal with me! Maybe the others won’t pose too much of a problem, but this Luo Feng improves way too quickly!”.
“He just recently became a fighter and he’s already a low level warlord. I’m sure that he’ll soon surpass me too. When that happens, there’s no doubt that I’ll die!” Pan Ya let out a long sigh.
Indeed, Pan Ya was full of regret.
When he previously met Luo Feng in the resupplying base, Zhang Ze Hu advised him to kill off Luo Feng. However, Pan Ya was afraid of making the rest of the fire hammer squad enraged, so he didn’t take action! But who knew that ever since then, Luo Feng’s skill rapidly climbed up and even managed to earn the nickname of ‘crazy’. Killing off around ten thousand monsters in two months, most of them being high level soldier level monsters. This crazy incident has long spread throughout the circle of fighters in Jiang-Nan city.
Sadly, Pan Ya never encountered Luo Feng until he came to #003 city.
“Aren’t you going to join a new fighter squad when you get back” said the mixed youth Li Wei.
“Yea, but the fire hammer squad will never forget this grudge. They might pick a time to secretly shoot a bullet at me” said Pan Ya with a bitter face. He didn’t forget that the tiger fang squad did the exact same thing to the fire hammer squad. And with his current strength, he’ll certainly die if he was ambushed by a sniper rifle all of a sudden.
Pan Ya looked towards the mixed youth Li Wei and asked: “Young master, if you ever have the chance to go through your information network in the Underground Alliance, could you notify me where Luo Feng is in the wilderness?”
“Sure, no problem” said Li Wei heartily.
The old veteran named Liu and the white brute exchanged glances. They have long knew that Pan Ya purposefully put on a worried look to try and get that young master to use some of his power.
However, since the two of them are just bodyguards, they weren’t going to bother with such a thing. And these days, Pan Ya was pretty good at kissing ass, which put the old veteran named Liu and the white brute in a good mood. Adding to that, Pan Ya’s squad did indeed suffer great losses, so it’s okay to help him out a bit. “It’s not early anymore, so we should rest now. We still have a long way to go tomorrow” spoke the old veteran named Liu.
Immediately, the four members of the thunderbolt squad started to rest.
Unlike in the summer, most fighter squads rest in the night during the winter and hit the road during the day! It’s hot in the summer, so they rest in the morning to avoid the sun and run in the night when it’s cool.
Deep in the night, the members of the thunderbolt squad either had their legs crossed or were laying on the ground as all of them rested. Except for the young master, the other three were only resting with their eyes closed. They didn’t dare to fall asleep….. who knows when a monster will appear in the wilderness.
Getting eaten by a monster while you’re still in your dreams, that’ll surely be something to regret.
“Hm?” Pan Ya, the old veteran named Liu, and the white brute virtually opened their eyes at the exact same time as they heard a sound.
