CHAPTER 15 THE DIABOLICAL GIRL
last edited: 08.06.17
“Let’s see, how do you want to die?” Qin Ke Xuan asked Long Ge and his bunch of people, unruffled, despite the situation.
Long Ge’s face fell, and snorted coldly, his hand gesturing to halt his restless subordinates, “You pretty skilful huh, looks like I’ve underestimated you. But don’t be too arrogant, you’re still a little girl after all. I don’t believe you can get out of here anyhow.” Upon finishing, he waved his finger, and the people behind him lunged at Qin Ke Xuan.
Qin Ke Xuan’s head hung low, her gaze sweeping past everyone through her lowered fringe. A suffocating tinge of bloodlust eluded from her, eliciting a shiver down spines coupled with a hair-raising sense of fear in everyone at the scene. Suddenly, the person standing before them was no longer a weak little girl, rather, cold-blooded killer!
Only the nutjob Yin Xu Dong did not feel anything, and ran straight to Qin Peng Cheng’s side, squatting down to flip him over. He pushed him, “Little brat, still alive?”
Yin Xu Dong saw the purple bruises all over Qin Peng Cheng’s skin, freaking hell! Even though that woman was Xuan Xuan’s mother, he still could not help it but curse. To be so ruthless with an innocent child, that’s so fvckin’ inhumane! No wonder Xuan Xuan was not willing to pay her any attention and had just knocked her out cold and threw her out.
Qin Peng Cheng’s both eyes were tightly closed as he whimpered: “It… it hurts… mummy…. Save me…” His tears leaked out.
Yin Xu Dong patted his cheeks gently, comforting him: “Everything’s okay now, no one’s gonna bully you anymore, your step-sis’s here to save you!”
Qin Peng Cheng opened his eyes with difficulty, trying hard to figure out who the person in front of him was, his step-sis’s was here to save him? That evil woman’s evil daughter was here to save him? “It’s… you?”
Yin Xu Dong supported him and helped him up, pinching his cheeks, and pointed excitedly in Qin Ke Xuan’s direction, “Mmhhm! Quick look at how valiant your step-sis is! So freaking epic!”
Qin Peng Cheng’s gaze followed his finger, and could only make out an occasional wisp of a small figure from within the crowd. That probably really was Qin Ke Xuan. He did not understand, however, why would she come and save him? Should she not be on the same side as that woman and hate his mother and him? He had thought that she would treat him as violently as that woman had.
Very quickly, however, Yin Xu Dong’s happiness faded. All he could hear were the cracks of bones and howls of anguish. He realised in alarm that whatever she was doing was not any proper self-defence, rather it was her carrying out violence. At the rate she was going, she could not possibly kill anyone, right? “Xuan Xuan! Don’t kill anyone!” What in the world was the current situation? Why was it that he had to worry about the kidnappers’ lives?
It was still all right had he not screamed, but he screamed. And it attracted the attention of the kidnappers who could not handle Qin Ke Xuan’s mightiness, so the few of them immediately pounced towards him.
Qin Ke Xuan cursed mentally, and quickly kicked the leg, as in snapping the bones, of the person blocking her way. Taking advantage of the void as he kneeled down, she pressed his shoulders, flipping over the masses that had surrounded her. Just as her foot hit the ground, she dashed towards the kidnappers running at Yin Xu Dong.
She dashed forward, slotting herself in between them, and disregarded their shocked expressions as she grabbed their collars with the stretch of her hand. With a hard tug in the opposite direction, the two of their heads slammed together with a “bang”. She released her grip, letting the two fainted people fall down on the ground. The other kidnappers, upon seeing their companions settled so quickly, were completely appalled, and their speed increased.
Qin Ke Xuan smiled coldly, they dared to escape from her with such speeds? She leapt in the air, jumping to the space above them, and gave the two a kick at their necks, and the two of them slanted sideways.
In the blink of an eye, the person who they had originally been surrounding had already leapt out of their encasement, even the ones with decent skills were settled by her within seconds effortlessly. This had them re-examining this girl.
Yin Xu Dong bent down to carry Qin Peng Cheng, stepping over the people lying on the ground on Qin Ke Xuan’s side, asking while he trembled in fear: “Xuan, Xuan, you’re all right, right? What are we gonna do now?” The kidnappers were already starting to take out knives, but Xuan Xuan was unarmed! “Do you need my help?”
Qin Ke Xuan slanted him a gaze, “You?” It would be great already if he did not come over to meddle and obstruct her.
Yin Xu Dong swallowed and asked carefully: “Even though I’m not very strong, but I can still help a little bit.” In any case, he was still a guy, and for a guy to cower behind a girl was asinine. It was just the right chance for him to test out the fruits of his hard work—his training—that he had strived to put in dutifully according to what Qin Ke Xuan had ordered him to do for a period of time.
Long Ge’s face fell as he stared at Qin Ke Xuan. It would be beyond shameful if word of the huge lot of them being unable to handle this little girl got out. They might as well quit and go back home!
He instructed the remaining dozen or so lot of people to surround the three of them, “Go all out, anyone who can seize the girl will be rewarded lucratively!”
Impetus draws out brave souls. The dozen or so of them waved their weapons and pounced at Qin Ke Xuan.
Yin Xu Dong upon seeing this such a scene panicked, and quickly shouted: “You’re too despicable! To have more than ten people against one…”
Qin Ke Xuan grabbed him, pushing him and Qin Peng Cheng to behind a wooden board, lashing out: “If you don’t shut your trap, I’ll break your neck! Stay here and don’t move!” With that, she zipped back into the group fight.
Knives and rods waved in her directions continuously, but they were all evaded by her with agility. Every miss would be supplemented with a grip of someone, or a punch in someone’s chest, or a dislocation of someone’s arm, as though a demon, her shadow flowed in and out through the flock of people, unceasingly. Very quickly, seven or eight were finished and had lost consciousness. Out of the remaining whose arms were not dislocated was only Long Ge alone.
Qin Ke Xuan stood there, not a scratch harmed, whereas they had lost so many numbers.
Long Ge gnashed his teeth in anger, who the hell was this godly person?! How the hell did they provoke such devil! He looked at his injured people, and spat on the ground, walking towards Qin Ke Xuan.
Taking the advantage while Qin Ke Xuan was still dislocating the last arm, Long Ge sent a hard punch towards her back. It was as though Qin Ke Xuan grew eyes on the back of her head, her hand shot out behind her back to grip Long Ge fist. Her head turned slightly to look at Long Ge, her other hand gripping another arm twisted, and that person’s arm turned at a very eerie angle with a “snap”, that guy immediately started wailing and howling. Qin Ke Xuan did not even spare him a glance as she raised her leg to kick his stomach while releasing her hand, and that guy stepped backwards before collapsing in whimpers.
Long Ge had wanted to retract his hand, but who knew Qin Ke Xuan’s small hand contained so much strength. She grabbed him tightly, not letting go. He threw a punch with his other hand, Qin Ke Xuan raised her other hand, too, to block his incoming punch, at the same time seizing the opportunity to grab his arm. The Qin Ke Xuan right now had grabbed Long Ge with both hands, she pulled him downwards, her knee raising at the same time to slam into his stomach, making Long Ge’s face twist palely.
Qin Ke Xuan flung him on the ground with a throw of her hands. Just as Long Ge wanted to flip over to get up, Qin Ke Xuan trod on him, rendering him immobile. Long Ge, even through his journey of climbing onto this position, had never experienced such humiliation. On top of that, with Qin Ke Xuan kneeing him in the stomach, his anger boiled all the more vigorously it hurt his chest, and he spat out a mouthful of blood.
Qin Ke Xuan lowered her gaze, looking at the glaring Long Ge, and asked calmly: “Who sent you?”
“Cough, I must be out of luck to meet a strong opponent! Who sent me? Haha, haven’t you seen what happened just now? Your biological mother’s the one who employed us to finish off you and your brother!” Long Ge said while spitting blood, his expression one of malevolence.
Qin Ke Xuan took out the knife she had brought, fondling with it in her hand, before suddenly flinging it out, the knife-edge zipping a hair’s breathe past the nose bridge of Wen Mei Xia who was trying to escape sneakily. She said, unperturbed, “Her? She doesn’t have the ability to do that.” There was definitely someone else directing behind the scene.
Wen Mei Xia freaked out, her legs almost giving way. Beads of sweat immediately dotted her forehead, and she turned, trembling, to look at the Qin Ke Xuan who had not even spared her a look, her lips shaking uncontrollably: “Xuan, Xuan…”
Qin Ke Xuan tilted her head, her eyes narrowing as she said darkly: “Try running again.”
Upon hearing such words, not only Wen Mei Xia started feeling scared, even the Long Ge lying on the ground could not help but started feeling uneasy. This girl could be cold-blooded as far as this…
Qin Ke Xuan’s foot shifted towards Long Ge’s ribs, and exerted strength as she stamped down, “Last chance, are you saying or not?”
“Cough… I, I… I’ll say, you severely injured our boss’s little brother previously during a fight. We had actually intended to just target you, but we couldn’t find a chance. Afterwards, Wen Mei Xia found us and got us to kidnap your little brother, so we borrowed this chance to lure you out.” Long Ge immediately spilt the beans when one of his ribs broke, he had heard from the boss’s little brother that his ribs had been broken by this devil one by one.
Long Ge exhaled after spilling. This information was not classified anyway, even if he told her, his boss would not reproach him. Even though his boss would punish him for today’s crushing defeat, but so long this diabolical girl let him go, there’s hope as long as he was still alive. With regards today’s defeat, they would save the revenge for another day.
However, he saw an eerie smile gracing her lips. Even though her expression was one of smiles, her eyes were not smiling, in fact, it gave Long Ge a tinge of coldness.
“Did you think I’d let you go? Don’t you know that when you cut weeds, you need to pull out the roots as well?” Long Ge, upon glimpsing Qin Ke Xuan’s delicate face, suddenly felt as though she was Luo Sha*, beautiful yet lethal.
(T/N: “Luo Sha” = “罗刹” is a demon in Buddhism or poltergeist in temple that plays tricks on monks and has a taste for their food)
“You, what do you want to do?! You’re crazy! Help!” Long Ge screamed in fear.
Qin Ke Xuan flipped up a knife on the side and grabbed it, ready to finish off this guy. Yin Xu Dong could no longer obey Qin Ke Xuan’s command to stand there and not move. Carrying Qin Peng Cheng, he ran over while shouting: “Xuan Xuan don’t!”
