Yun Tiansheng doesn’t really care at this point whether this village will retaliate against them or not, because Xiao Lian has quite a lot of fortune with her, besides he didn’t exactly ‘protect’ them because there’s no threat around there except for themselves
“In your dream! Sister Xiao Lian won’t go with you!” Wang Dechuan stood up for her, holding a wooden stick, but that wooden stick is basically a toy for them, they could even send him flying with one finger due to the gap of their cultivation.
Yun Tiansheng ignored him completely, he just said to Xiao Lian. “Hurry and make your choice. If you don’t want to i will kill the villagers one by one in front of your eyes. If you agree, i will exempt this village from the tax for three years, not a bad deal i would say.”
It’s not like Xiao Lian is weak, but the gap between them is too huge, she realized this when she tried to parry Yun Tiansheng’s strike.
Xiao Lian bit her lips, she basically doesn’t have any choice but obey Yun Tiansheng because she’s not strong enough and if she refused, Yun Tiansheng will kill the villagers one by one until she’s the only one remain and drag her with him anyway.
“Sister Xiao Lian, i’ll fight! even if i die trying it’s better than letting these scums do whatever they want!” Wang Dechuan made his resolve to stand his ground. He is afraid of death, but more than that, he’s so furious at these bandits.
“Oh, how inspiring! but go ahead and ask her, whether your futile resistance really amounts to anything” Yun Tiansheng gave him a condescending look.
“We would rather die than let Xiao Lian go with the likes of you!”
“You held my son captive. I have nothing else to lose, I’ll fight!”
“Yes, I’ve had enough of this crap!”
At this time, everyone else was inspired by Wang Dechuan and decided to stand up and oppose this tyranny. They are afraid of death, but living like this is basically the same as dead.
“Don’t be hasty. We should listen to Sir Yun’s words and let Xiao Lian and Sir Yun go to avoid further casualties. I’m sure it would be an honor for Xiao Lian to sacrifice for this village!” A man said from the crowd while running to Yun Tiansheng. “Besides, we’ll be exempted from protection fee for three years. This would’ve been unthinkable before! If it is not for Sir Yun’s protection, we would’ve fallen prey to demon beast long ago!”
“Niu Zhi, what are you talking about!” Wang Dechuan said with anger: “Protect us? From what exactly?There is no demon beast nearby, we don’t need their protection!”
“Yes, Niu Zhi, how can you side with that scum… don’t tell me you’re the one who leaked the information about Xiao Lian……” Someone suspected him as the one who leak the information.
“Information?” Niu Zhi said with a sneer: “Xiao Lian brought back lots of things, but barely gave us any!”
The villagers can’t believe what they just heard, and Xiao Lian is so furious. It’s true that she didn’t give everything she brought to the villagers since she has her needs as well, but she already gave most of what she brought here.
She was not that familiar with Niu Zhi, yet she still bother to give him some of her fortunes! Only to be stabbed on her back!
“You’re a traitor…” Wu Liquan was so furious he never expected one of the villager would become a traitor and side with bandit.
“Traitor? I’m doing this for this vilage’s sake as well!” Niu Zhi said with a sneer: “the most logical decision to make is to obey Sir Yun. You think you can defy Sir Yun?”
There is no doubt that he is the traitor, no wonder Yun Tiansheng already return here even though it’s still 3 months from the previous extortion.
“You, you… I will kill you!” Wang Dechuan screamed and about to smash Niu Zhi’s face with a wooden stick, but was quickly stopped by Xiao Lian.
“Hold it, you can’t fight them …” Xiao Lian was also full of anger. It’s been a while since her last return to her village and she gave the villagers a lot of things. But somebody snitched on her just because he’s dissatisfied with what she gave him.
There’s no point in saying anything now, Yun Tiansheng and his men is too strong for her.
“At least you understand that much, last chance to make your choice, before i’m running out of patience.” Yun Tiansheng looked at her full of disdain.
