“We did not make it to the Heavenly Mountains in time but we got ourselves a prize here. Hahaha.”
An extraordinary maiden of great beauty, dressed in silky white dress had her back against the cliff. She looked badly shaken. She was teething with rage and fear. Even then, her grace was extremely enthralling.
Yi Ping was stunned at her beauty for she was like a fairy that had descended onto the mortal realm.
In front of her were three men, wielding swords and halberds. From the looks of it, they had already decided to devour this young maiden in their minds.
Yi Ping stepped in angrily and shouted, “What are three despicable men doing here?” He brandished his long sword and pointed at them.
The three men were taken by surprise. They quickly turned around and saw a young man. They looked at one another before roaring out loud.
One of the men with a long bushy beard stared at him and said fiercely, “So what are you going to do with us? Kill us? Do you know we are the Three Evils of the West?”
There was a glitter of hope in the eyes of the extremely beautiful maiden when Yi Ping had first appeared but that hope was soon crushed at the mention of the Three Evils of the West.
Yi Ping was taken aback. The Three Evils of the West was renowned in the martial fraternity for their wickedness and brutality! Not only that, they had killed countless highly skilled pugilists as they rampaged the martial fraternity for twenty-years! That was why they were greatly feared.
Another man with the moustache laughed, “Or are you thinking of joining in the fun after we are done?”
This aroused Yi Ping anger. Even though he had to die, he could not abandon the righteousness in his heart. Yi Ping eyed them fiercely and smirked, “If you scram now, I will be forgiving.”
The third man with a short beard and wielding a halberd in his hands suddenly attacked him, “Outrageous! I will kill you today and cut your body into many pieces!”
Yi Ping was surprised at the speed and ferocious of his halberd attack. He barely managed to parry the attack and was knocked back. But before he could steady his footing, he received a kick in his chest and was knocked down to the ground.
The short beard man laughed, “I thought he is some daring hero. But he turns out to be an amateur. A sword in your hand is like a piece of worthless metal!”
Yi Ping coughed out blood and wiped his mouth, “This is not over yet!” All of a sudden, he lifted his sword and pieced the throat of the short beard man who was still laughing!
When the short beard man collapsed onto the ground, he was still staring in disbelief! What a swift sword!
Yi Ping had succeeded for two reasons; His opponent had underestimated him and let down his guard.
The other two men were experienced pugilists and after seeing one of their own had fallen, they did not dare to be careless anymore and had immediately attacked Yi Ping with their swords! All their attacking strokes were lethal!
They immediately attacked Yi Ping in all directions! There was a saying; two hands were hard to beat down four hands. It was not long before Yi Ping had been pierced in his chest and hacked on his back!
He soon collapsed on the ground, barely taking ten strokes from them.
Now the man with the moustache, who was the more cunning and vicious of the two, stabbed Yi Ping in his heart again.
The man with the long bushy beard asked him angrily, “What did you do that for? He is already dead!”
The man with the moustache laughed wickedly, “I want to make sure that none disturb us later.”
The man with the long bushy beard paused and laughed wickedly, “True, true…” But before he could finish laughing, he was grasping a dagger in his throat for breath! When he fell on the ground, his eyes were still staring at the man with the moustache!
The man with the moustache turned and looked wickedly at the extremely beautiful young maiden, “Such an extraordinary beauty. You belong only to me and there is no one else to share in my enjoyment.”
The young maiden pursed her lips and there were now tears in her eyes. All of a sudden, her alluring eyes were staring in bewilderment.
When the man with the moustache saw her expressions, he quickly turned around and got a fright of his life!
The young man that he had just killed was standing in front of him! Before he could react, he felt the cold metallic length of a sword piercing through his stomach! When he had died, he was still in disbelief!
The young and extraordinary beautiful maiden nearly fainted from fright as she asked, “Are you a ghost or a man?”
