Chapter 25 – Brothers And Sisters From The Jianghu
As the saying goes, an expert could distinguish another through their fighting stance.
As soon as Shen Mo appeared at the door, his pine-like stance attracted everyone’s attention.
He wore a well-fitted, short plain black T-shirt, a pair of dark camouflage pants for special training, and a pair of black military boots. He stepped steadily and firmly on the ground, exuding an intimidating aura.
Brother Hui’s two comrades came forward to stop him, but Shen Mo showed no fear. He punched them and put them in a chokehold. Then, he dodged sideways and attacked with a downward elbow strike. The series of movements were efficient, neat and natural. The two hoodlums could only scream continuously!
Forgetting that he was being trampled into a mess, Tan Xiao widened his eyes and mumbled, “Oh my god, he’s the real deal.”
Then, his face was liberated as Shen Mo lifted up the one stepping on him and flung him out like a broken kite!
He really flung that person out.
Although Brother Hui was thin, he was at least 65-70kg. How much force did one need to toss him out?
Tan Xiao hurriedly did a kip-up. He sprang up in a flash and stood in front of Bai Youwei, assuming a protective stance.
“Now you know how strong my brother is, right? Come again if you have the guts!” He shouted in a stern voice. If you ignored the footprint on his face, he looked somewhat intimidating.
The three hoodlums helped each other up, one more wretched than the other. They knew that they had encountered a tough opponent.
Brother Hui glared resentfully at Shen Mo and Tan Xiao before saying sarcastically, “She’s just a cripple and doesn’t even qualify as a woman, but you are protecting her like she’s a treasure? If you like it, I’ll let you have it! Playing with this kind of woman is just for the sake of some freshness. Even if you really wanted to give it to me, I’d think it’s disgusting!”
Bai Youwei’s complexion became slightly pale and a malicious glint flashed across her eyes.
“I dare you to fucking say some more bullshit and see what happens!” Tan Xiao waved his fist threateningly.
A glint of panic flashed across Brother Hui’s eyes. He clenched his teeth, then turned around and left the supermarket with his comrades as they limped.
Once they left, Tan Xiao approached Shen Mo to try to get closer with him, “Brother! You’re amazing! Why did you have to wait until the last minute when you can fight so well?!”
He placed his hand on Shen Mo’s shoulder and grinned mischievously. “You think you can only show your power at the last minute, don’t you? Don’t worry, I understand!”
Shen Mo coldly removed his hand and walked towards Bai Youwei. Then, he carried her in his arms and turned around and went out.
“Cool~” Tan Xiao whistled and hastily followed him. He also picked up Shen Mo’s jacket that he had left at the door and yelled while chasing after them, “Brother, how do I address you? I’m Tan Xiao, Tan Xiao Feng Sheng1’s Tan, Tan Xiao Feng Sheng’s Xiao, what about you? …”
He chased them all the way to the SUV and handed the jacket to Shen Mo. “This is yours, right? You left it outside by the door. Why are you still wearing a jacket on such a hot day? …Oh, oh, you’re afraid that your sister will be cold at night, so you went back to the car to get her a jacket to put on, right?”
He was simply talking to himself as no one bothered to answer him.
Shen Mo looked cold and aloof, whereas Bai Youwei’s face was gloomy all along, there was no clue as to what she was thinking about.
Tan Xiao touched his nose and felt that this pair of siblings were quite strange.
Just as he was feeling dejected, Shen Mo took his jacket, and indifferently said, “Thank you.”
Tan Xiao was rejuvenated once more.
He had always known how to take cues from others, so he instantly broke into a smile and replied, “You’re welcome! We are brothers and sisters from the jianghu, we will always rush to the rescue when another is in trouble! We rely on our brother when we’re away from home. Today, I helped you, in the future you will help me too! It’s just loyalty that we’re staking! Just find me if you have any problems next time! I, Brother Xiao, will definitely not rebuff you!”
The ramblings were endless.
Bai Youwei, who was in the car, moved and her lips and muttered, “Annoying.”
Shen Mo looked up and glanced at her.
Tan Xiao was unaware of it and spoke passionately to Shen Mo, “…If you really want to thank me, I cannot refuse it. Can you teach me a few moves?”
He stretched out his fist and leg to the air, practising the moves.
“The moves you did just now were really powerful! How did you do it? …Hi-yah! Hah! …Is my posture correct?”
Shen Mo did not want to respond.
T/N: Hello guys. I’m really really sorry for being MIA for so long. I have been swamped with assignments and society work one after another and just could not find any time to translate anything (also because of my horrible time management). Orz.These are the chapters translated back in January but I did not have time to even check the edits my editor made until now. Please bear with me, I will be back with more updates once I’m done with studies (which is at the end of April). Also, I’m having my finals in two weeks so wish me luck. Thank you for all the readers who are still staying with me. I’m sorry for my sporadic updates, I promise that I will be back with at least weekly updates in May. (This is a flag to make me feel bad if I break my promise lol)
PS: Just checked back my TL note at chapter 21. Ehem, so, obviously I didn’t survive my uni assignments. Well 👉👈=…
Tbh, I had a two-week holiday during December… I guess I procrastinated and now I’m just in a horrible position OOF. Still, thank you to anyone who is still reading, I appreciate it <3.
