Chapter 99: Amidst The Rolling Red Dust, Two Dragons Emerge To Steal A Pearl (2)
Even with Prince Yan’s imposing manner, the guard didn’t fear him at all. Instead, they even rolled their eyes at him, paying no attention.
Cheng Shizhao was infuriated and said, “Xingzhi! We’re in a war right now! You, you, dared to bring her over?!”
That guard didn’t care for the social rankings and they dared to provoke Cheng Shizhao, saying, “What does your highness mean by this? Do you think this person isn’t worthy of being the Marquis’s guard?”
“Is this an issue of whether your skills are top notch or not? How, how, how can you follow Xingzhi to the military camp?”
That person knew no manners and rudely said, “Humph. Since this Prince looks down on me, you must have elite guards by your side. I want to spar with them and see who doesn’t have the right to be a guard within this military camp.”
An iron tower-like man walked out from behind Cheng Shizhao
“You are quite rude and dare to boast yourself shamelessly in front of the Prince. Let me learn some moves from you.”
His name was Meng Zhongtian who was from the Kansai region.
He was Prince Yan’s trusted vanguard lieutenant with brute force, able to go against a mace that was about 60 kg.
Seeing how Yu Xingzhi’s guard was so rude, Meng Zhongtian was extremely angry. Now that the guard provoked him, Meng Zhongtian couldn’t control his urge anymore, jumping out and demanding a spar.
Cheng Shizhao’s guard, Guo Suren, had seen the scene where Zhou Xiaoxiao disguised as a man and beat Cheng Shizhao up, however.
When he saw Zhou Xiaoxiao disguising as a guard, he knew something bad was going to happen and a headache rising.
Great grandaunt, who wants to spar with you?
If they win you, you would’ve complained about them bullying a woman. But if they lost, they would have no face to see anyone else.
Yet, he didn’t think about his own brother Meng Zhongtian and his faults.
He acted like a bull, charging at the person who provoked him out of impulse. Guo Suren hurriedly tugged on Meng Zhongtian’s sleeves and gave him a look.
But they heard Zhou Xiaoxiao say, “Ok, do as you wish. Let’s spar outside the school field. If you don’t dare to spar with me, you’re not a man.”
How could Meng Zhongtian care about Guo Suren’s look now? He sprinted out.
Now that Zhou Xiaoxiao got her way with her evil plan, she smiled and followed him out.
Guo Suren covered his eyes and said bitterly in his heart: great grandaunt, aren’t you taking advantage of how stupid brother is? You’re not even a man.
Cheng Shizhao was infuriated and said to Yu Xingzhi, “Aren’t you going to do something about her?”
Yu Xingzhi touched his nose and said oh. He called, “Xiaoxiao, be careful while sparring and don’t injure the Prince’s subordinate.”
While they were preparing for war, the soldiers experienced boring and dull days.
The soldiers were all young and vigorous men, so everyone was incredibly excited as if they had won the lottery when they heard that one of Champion Marquis’s elite guards was going to spar with the leading general’s guard, Meng Zhongtian.
Meng Zhongtian had a dark face and he was extremely tall and buff. While standing on the field, he presented an awe-inspiring presence.
Compared to the guard with surname Zhou, he appeared to be a weak chicken against a fierce tiger. Not only was he short and thin, but he had a snow-white face and delicate appearance.
Therefore, the officers who were close to Meng Zhongtian teased and said, “Skinny guard, let me give you a word of advice and admit defeat right now. Guard Meng doesn’t go soft on blows, so it wouldn’t look good for the Marquis if you end up with a broken bone or something.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao smiled, but wasn’t angry. She exhibited her imposing manner and said, “Please teach me!”
The two decided to not spar with weapons, but only their bare hands.
That Meng Zhongtian made a strange cry and pounced on Zhou Xiaoxiao like a fierce predator hungry for its prey.
His arms reached for her, but Zhou Xiaoxiao wasn’t afraid at all. People watched as she extended her snow-white palm and caught Meng Zhongtian’s iron-like arms steadily.
She paused but didn’t take a step back; the two were in a deadlock for a moment. On the other wise, Meng Zhongtian looked as if he couldn’t endure this, greatly shocked.
He thought: this person appears small and delicate, but who knew he had so much strength?
