Chapter 39: How Dare You be Arrogant with Just This Ability
Except for Shen Ming and Shen Yun who were on watch, everyone else in the Shen family was tossing and turning in anxiety and unable to sleep.
However, as the night wore on with no sign of any disturbance, they began to think that perhaps they were just being overly nervous. But just when they thought they had been mistaken, the sound of footsteps could be heard outside.
Shen Ming and Shen Yun, who were on watch, immediately stood up and looked at the incoming person with alertness, holding their swords that were hanging by their waist.
Shen Yu’an stood at the forefront with Shen Rong and his elder brother. Although Song Shi and the others were also involved in this battle, they were being protected by Shen Yu’an and several men who stood in front of them.
The people who had arrived were the same group that they had encountered earlier in the afternoon, but there were only twenty or so of them.
Some of them were holding knives, while others were holding sickles and hoes, giving off an intimidating aura.
It seemed that they thought they could easily overpower them, which was why they only sent such a small number of people.
Shen Yu’an chuckled and looked at the man with green bean-shaped eyes who was leading the group.
‘If they all came together, she would still be a little worried,’ she thought.
But they underestimated the enemy too much by sending just this people. She didn’t even need to use her psychic power. She decided to let her father and uncles practice their skills first.
Seeing them get up instantly, the man with green eyes furrowed his brows tightly.
He had originally thought that they could easily kill them while they were all asleep.
He didn’t expect that they were already prepared!
The man with green eyes let out a sinister laugh. “Hmph, what’s the use of being awake? With just a few old, weak, sick, and disabled people like them, we can crush them with just one hand.”
He was sure that they would be scared and begging for mercy.
However, when he saw that the Shen family remained somewhat scared but composed, he became very displeased.
Moreover, the leader of the Shen family, a little girl, not only was unafraid but also managed to laugh.
The man with green eyes widened his eyes, trying to appear more intimidating to show them how terrifying he was.
However, Shen Yu’an burst out laughing and looked at the man with green eyes mockingly. “No matter how hard you stare, your small eyes won’t get any bigger.”
This statement directly hit a sore spot for the man with green bean-shaped eyes. He hated it when people mentioned that his eyes were small.
This little girl was going to regret what she said!
With a fierce expression, the man with green bean-shaped eyes said, “Hand over all your food and give me that little brat, and I’ll give you a quick death.”
The man’s follower chimed in, “Yeah, hand over the food and the women, or you’ll regret it.”
Shen Yu’an sneered and said, “Then you can all just end it here. I might consider leaving you with intact corpses.”
“You shameless brat! Brothers, get her! We’ll bring her back to the boss and teach her a lesson. Let’s see if she’ll still be laughing,” shouted the man with green eyes as he charged forward.
The people behind him also charged forward, wielding their weapons.
How dare this little brat underestimate him! He was going to make her suffer before taking her back.
The boss had said to only avoid injuring her face if she dared to resist.
Shen Yu’an also charged forward, with the man with green bean-shaped eyes as her target.
Since his mouth was so filthy, she was going to help him clean it up.
Shen Rong and the others followed behind Shen Yu’an and charged forward, while the others followed behind, picking up any stragglers and delivering the finishing blows.
The man with green bean-shaped eyes was taken aback when Shen Yu’an charged forward alone, and before he could even laugh, she kicked him and sent him flying to the ground.
Just as everyone was still in shock, Shen Yu’an skillfully broke the tendons in both of his hands.
“Ah! Ah! Ah!” The man with green eyes let out two screams, veins popping on his forehead as he glared at Shen Yu’an with eyes that seemed to want to burst.
Shen Yu’an smirked and whispered, “You dare to be so arrogant with just this little bit of ability.”
The man with green bean-shaped eyes became more and more angry, feeling intense pain in his wrists.
He roared, “I’ll make you pay with your life!”
At this moment, he had completely forgotten about the task of bringing Shen Yu’an back intact, and only wanted to kill her to relieve his anger.
However, he had lost all strength in his hands, and he lay on the ground, kicking at Shen Yu’an with his feet.
Shen Yu’an easily dodged his attack, and with the hand holding the knife, she swung twice, crippling his legs.
The man with green bean-shaped eyes writhed on the ground, trembling with pain. He angrily shouted, “What are you waiting for? Kill this damn girl!”
The shocked crowd finally realized what had just happened.
The Shen family quickly regained their composure after the initial shock and fear of seeing Shen Yu’an wield her sword.
However, the atmosphere on both sides had clearly shifted. The Shen family was no longer as afraid, while the other side looked at this seemingly helpless group of people with shock and vigilance.
“Kill them, avenge Brother Zhima!” One person on the other side watched as their own people were frightened back by a little girl, and shouted fiercely.
“Yes, there are only a few of them. Don’t be afraid, let’s kill them!”
After giving themselves a pep talk, those people came forward and surrounded Shen Yu’an and her group.
If it weren’t for the inappropriate occasion, Shen Yu’an and her group would have laughed at hearing them call out “Brother Zhima”.
“Protect yourselves.” Shen Yu’an said and then charged straight ahead, directly confronting five or six people.
Shen Rong and the others also charged forward with their knives, thinking about the movements Shen Yu’an had taught them.
Swing the knife, bring it down.
Swing the knife, bring it down.
The same motion was repeated over and over again, and they were aimed at fatal spots.
Shen Yu’an quickly took down over a dozen people, not wasting any time like she did with the man with green bean-shaped eyes. Instead, she went straight for the kill with every strike.
When there were only seven people left, Shen Yu’an stopped and stood to the side, guiding her father and his men.
“Third Uncle Yun, dodge to the right and swing your knife high.”
“Fourth Younger brother, don’t be afraid. Open your eyes and strike. If you don’t kill them, they’ll aim their knives at you.
Just after saying those words, Shen Yu’an saw the person who was confronting Shen Yun swinging a knife towards him.
She shouted anxiously, “Third Uncle Yun, quickly dodge!”
But it was still too late. Shen Yun’s arm was grazed by the swinging sickle, and blood instantly stained the piece of clothing red.
Shen Yu’an had just wanted to step forward and help, but then Shen Yun became ruthless, swiftly swinging his knife towards the person in front of him.
The person didn’t expect Shen Yun, who was injured, to react so quickly. Unable to dodge in time, he was slashed across the neck by the knife in Shen Yun’s hand.
A gush of blood spurted out, and the person stared in shock with wide eyes, making a “he~he” sound as he held his neck. Then he knelt down and fell to the ground.
There was a bloody red mark spreading under the person’s body.
Shen Rong and the others stood still, holding their knives, feeling their palms trembling. They didn’t know if it was fear or excitement.
Meanwhile, on the other side, the leader of the group was drinking some alcohol he had somehow acquired, and in his mind, he was lusting after the little girl he had encountered that afternoon.
