Chapter 15.2: Jin Mulan Picks Up Shen Lang
From the breath of the winds, sounds of hooves echoed from the ground, the sudden noise tearing up the peace of the environment. The whole ground shook and trembled before him.
Shen Lang turned and saw a cavalry of troops.
It was an elite cavalry, at least a couple hundreds of warhorses. Each of them a knight dressed in bulky armors as they rode their warhorse majestically. Shen Lang could see at first glance the tantamount amount of money it’d take to assemble a cavalry this size. It’d surely be an absolute trump card if used during Ancient China against its many enemies.
What kind of powerful family can parade through this small town with such elite groups of people?
Soon, the cavalry’s flag gleamed.
Ah! This the Count’s Palace!
The Jin Family’s truly a noble with over a decade long history…
Three hundred years ago, the Jin Family guarded Xuanwu City. Even the name Xuanwu City came from the Jin Family. To a certain extent, Count Jin was heralded as the master of Xuanwu City.
The head of the cavalry dressed in silver armor was tall and slender. The face wasn’t shown as helmet covered the leader’s face.
Only two pairs of bright eyes could be seen. It was cold as autumn water. If there words to describe… he couldn’t. He could explain them in metaphors, explain a million metaphors of how beautiful they were… but he couldn’t.
She… she was beautiful, the enrapturing beauty from those cold perceiving eyes almost killed him.
He couldn’t see her features but he knew her already.
She was the daughter of the Count, a princess, a goddess in her own right. She’s the one countless young heroes dream of. She brings them springtime bursting with light but leaves just as quick in winter cold, dark and dreary for they know they’ll never have her. They wanted her to be theirs. Selfishly, thoughtlessly, theirs. But it was a foolish thought. They’ll never have her. They could never. She was out of their reach.
Shen Lang grew slightly dismayed and truth be told, shocked. He planned to go to the Count’s earlier. Who knew he’d meet her in this place in the exact moment he needed her.
“Give way! Give way!”
The two knights in front held the banner flag high and proud. They shouted loudly, driving away the civilians nearby, Shen Lang included.
If he’s to be hit by them, his bones would crush into mangled pieces.
He quickly retreated to the edge and made way for the cavalry.
However, just as he retreated, he slowed his pace and stumbled down deliberately.
Because he had a plan.
The knight from outer edge passed by Shen Lang. The force caused his body to fly out.
Hey, this handsome face! Careful! Ow, ow, ow, ow….
Future wife, you hit me once in the past… so why not hit me again and take me home? How about it? I’ll take good care of you and you take good care of me!
Shen Lang said in his heart as he flew several meters away before dropping heavily on the ground.
He’s not a professional in this scamming business but his strength, agility, and timing was perfect.
The land hadn’t injured him badly as he had hoped so he bit his gums hard. Soon, streams of blood flowed from his lips. He needed to sell himself well. It was imperative.
Jin Mulan’s eyes narrowed. She waved her jade hands and more than a hundred cavalry riders stopped immediately.
The first two knights dismounted from their mount and quickly went forward to check Shen Lang’s injuries. The cavalry hadn’t expect Jin Mulan to jump out from her warhorse, her movement faster than first two knights.
Shen Lang’s mouth gaped wide open.
How utterly amazing you are!
Jin Mulan moved to Shen Lang and bent down, gracefully taking off her gloves. Then, she placed her finger on his nostril to check his breathing.
Shen Lang subconsciously used his x-ray vision and ability. Blood quickly surged through his head.
36E! My god, although I can’t see it can tell the size!
Jin Mulan tightened her brows. He had so much charm, she thought. Had features that drew any woman in.
Shen Lang’s not injured enough to begin with and his breathing was fine. Smooth and vigorous to say the least. But he’s a doctor and he had a plan. Pretending like he’s on his deathbed and breathing as if on his last breath, it was effortless. Lying before Jin Mulan, he looked ever so miserable.
She regarded the people of Xuanwu City as her own. Her father taught her well, taught her to love the people as if their own children. True, Shen Lang was at fault. He blocked the streets. He should have moved, but he wasn’t fast enough. It was his fault, yes but she’d never allow an innocent civilian to die before her presence.
“General, let’s take him to a nearby physician to receive treatment.” Said one of the attendants.
Never! Shen Lang shouted inwardly. Wife, take me to your home!
“No,” Jin Mulan shook his head. “No, ordinary physician’s aren’t reassuring. Take him to the Count’s Palace. Our physicians are more skillful. He’ll be treated much better. I won’t allow an innocent civilian to die before my presence.”
Wow… I can’t think of anything that sounds as nice as your voice… so soothing…
“Yes,” Jin Mulan’s attendant bowed and gently picked Shen Lang and held him into her bosom.
Then, she pulled him up into her mount.
Jin Mulan’s attendant was a woman, yet more powerful and sturdy than most men. Shen Lang’s cheeks blushed red, embarrassed of being carried like a princess by a woman no less. He forced himself to lie unconscious, wishing to forget this scene.
“Let’s return.” At Jin Mulan’s command, she swiftly led the cavalry back to the Count’s Palace.
Shen Lang, the injured pretty little lotus was thus picked up by the goddess, Jin Mulan.
The time has come to decide your destiny. Shen Lang encouraged himself. Whether you can save your family, whether you can get revenge on the Xu Family, or against Tian Heng, whether you can eat soft rice and live luxuriously in the future… it all depends on your performance.
