Chapter 4 – Lovely Yezi
By the time Xiao Bing returned back to the Civil Lines, it had already turned dark, which the time for the nightlife of college boys and girls.
The hand-in-hand couples flocked the main street, also including a few brother and sister duos who had come to casually roam. The roadside stalls were packed with people; barbecue shops and roadside stalls overcrowding.
At this moment, at the entrance of the biggest nightclub at the Civil Lines, a taxi stopped.
Xiao Bing walked out, lit a cigarette and walked inside the club while holding it in between his lips.
The insides reverberated with heavy metal music. On the dance floor, boys and girls madly danced in revealing clothes. Xiao Bing had just sat on the bar counter and was about to ask for a beer and two men with wretched appearances already approached him and said with an air of mysteriousness, “Brother, have you come for K powder? We can give you ten percent off, the lowest price in the whole city.”
While one talked, the other one took out a knife, menacingly staring Xiao Bing.
“Our boss is brother Fingerless!”
While the counterpart turned increasingly menacing, Xiao Bing turned inwardly delighted. Originally, he would have to ask around the whereabouts of this brother Fingerless in such a place where all kinds people meet together, but who would have thought that not only this brother Fingerless collected protection money, he even indulged in drug business, moreover his undermen themselves came knocking his door.
Xiao Bing glanced at the bottle of beer on the table and asked, “Would you two gentlemen like a drink?”
The two gaped, unable to respond. The one who initiated the conversation about buying drugs asked, “What? What do you mean?”
Xiao Bing said with a smile, “Have a drink, it’s on me.”
“Just support the business of us brothers. Your father doesn’t need your charity!”
Before the man could close his mouth, Xiao Bing stuffed the unopened bottle into his mouth. The man being caught of-guard in addition to Xiao Bing’s frightening strength resulted in knocking out the man’s two incisors, causing streaks of blood to streak down his face.
The man still hadn’t managed any reaction when Xiao Bing grabbed his head and smashed it onto the counter with a thud. The few individuals watching this scene from the side couldn’t help but feel cold sweat on their forehead. This man was too ruthless.
Thud thud thud thud….
Four “thud” sounds echoed in succession. Blood stained that man’s forehead and also spurted out of his nose. A few more of his teeth went missing. Tears, snot, and blood, all flown out as one, making his face completely unrecognizable.
Xiao Bing finally smashed a wine bottle on his head once again. The man collapsed on the ground with a thud, unconsciousness.
At this moment, seeing Xiao Bing’s gaze turning towards him, the man holding the knife felt his legs trembling. He couldn’t even speak properly, “Don’t…..don’t…..stay back…..I am brother fingerless’ man.”
His hands were shivering. With a clank sound, the knife in his hands fell down on the ground.
Xiao Bing let out a sigh, then gently patted the man’s face while speaking in an emotional tone, “How the ways of the world have changed, even a trash like you is playing thugs. Society is progressing, times are changing; shouldn’t you criminals properly learn before coming out. Not to say, you should get a proper education, but you should at least learn some martial arts, mixed martial arts, or something….”
That wretched man wanted to cry but had no tears to shed. But he didn’t retort and could only repeatedly nod.
Xiao Bing’s expression gravened, “Help me look for your brother Fingerless. Let me take a look how a person who collects protection money in broadlight and even sell drugs in nightclubs made of!”
That man gulped, hesitating. Xiao Bing grabbed his hair and coldly said, “Don’t tell, that’s fine. I’ll kill just you!”
“Brother Fingerless is there….I’ll help you…..”
When Xiao Bing discovered brother Fingerless, he was groping a fashionably dressed young woman who appeared around twenty years old. He was trying to madly kiss her, at the same, incessantly letting out lewd laughters, “Beauty, come play with me. This entire area hears me. From now on, you’ll be this area’s elder sister.”
The girl, while panting with rage, tried to keep brother fingerless away, shouting, “You loathsome hoodlum, let go of me now, or else I’ll scream!”
Brother Fingerless complacently laughed and said, “Go shout. Even if you scream your throat out, nobody will come to help you.”
Brother Fingerless was dressed in a fancy shirt and was missing his left thumb. From the side, several of his undermen were spiritedly cheering. After confirming his identity, Xiao Bing let go of the wretched man who was leading the way. The latter immediately ran away.
Following a peng sound, brother fingerless flew out like drifting clouds and rising mist, smashing into a faraway wine table. The table blasted into pieces; the fruit plates and wine bottles on the table all falling on his body. A few drinking customers screamed and immediately ran away. Brother Fingerless’ underlings hurriedly rushed to and supported him up while asking repeatedly, “Boss, are you alright?”
“Which bastard dared to hit brother Fingerless?”
“It was that youngster over there?”
“Fuck, kill that son of a bitch!”
“Yeah, kill him!”
After blasting away Brother Fingerless, Xiao Bing gently patted his clothes and coldy laughed, “What were you saying, nobody will come even if she screamed her throat out…..Fucker, it’s these meaningless lines that annoys me the most. Beauty, are you alright?”
The last were meant for the girl who was being taken advantage of. The latter raised her head and said, “I’m fine.”
When Xiao Bing say the girl’s appearance, he couldn’t help but stare blankly.
Her had curved eyebrows, a small nose that which slightly stuck out, a jade-like spotless face which faintly emitted a snowy halo and was complimented by her makeup, and her smiling appearance could move anybody. Her captivating lips were smiling and so were her crescent moon like eyes and the two dimples on her cheek. A simple smile could sucker people in. It was hardly a surprise that Brother Fingerless tried to make a go for her.
Her mental fortitude seemed quite strong. She didn’t seem like losing her head out of fear at all as she tried to size up Xiao Bing with a slightly tilted head, looking extremely cute, “I am Yezi, you?”
Xiao Bing almost blurted out without thinking, “I am Xiao Bing. Everybody calls me brother Bing.”
Xiao Bing didn’t know why, but this was the first time in his life he felt as such. It seemed as if he couldn’t even control his own thoughts.”
“You look quite strong. Can you do you me favor?”
“Favor?” Xiao Bing said with a smile, “What favor, I’ll see what I can do.”
“ Hold him for me, I wish to tear him apart!”
Xiao Bing almost said without thinking, “Alright, I agree!”
Xiao Bing said and was about to carry on ahead. At this moment, more than ten men rushed down from upstairs. They encircled him with the Brother Fingerless’ other underlings who were beside him. The surrounding people frightenedly dispersed and watched the show from afar for the fear of being dragged in for no reason.
Xiao BIng turned his head and gave a glance to Yezi. The latter, as if having full confidence in him, blinked her eyes and said, “You don’t need to defend me. Give them a good beating in my place.”
“Sure!” Yezi retreated to a wall, and Xiao Bing stood before the men him like a war god.
When Yezi had moved to safe distance, he began to unhurriedly undress, one piece of clothing after another fell down. His shirt fell down, revealing a chiseled bronze colored chest underneath. Countless gasps sounded in the lounge, ultimately turning into a deathly silence.
On his body was carved a gigantic golden dragon, with its head at his chest. Its mouth was wide opened, appearing to roaring towards the sky. You could clearly see every single scale on its body and also its eyes which looked down at the whole world. It seemed as if the dragon could come out and pounce on them at moment. They involuntarily retreated a few steps; their hearts madly pounding.
Brother Fingerless was also stupefied by Xiao Bing’s tattoo. However, after getting aware of the pain in his stomach due to Xiao Bing’s kick, he immediately gnashed his teeth and roared, “Fuck, kill him for me!”
Those dozen men shouted and charged towards Xiao Bing in unison.
The moment first stick was about to land on Xiao Bing’s head, the latter casually grabbed it and easily snatched it away. Then, peng peng peng…..In a blink of an eye, all of those dozen men were collapsed on the ground. Every single of them was struck on their head with the rod, not one bit heavier or lighter, and directly fainted.
“Fuck me, is this for real?” The surroundings erupted with noise, following which, a whistle sounded, blown from under the cover of the crowd.
Yezi’s eyes shined as she pointed at Brother Fingerless and excitedly said, “Hold him for me!”
Xiao Bing sounded his agreement and headed towards Brother Fingerless. Brother Fingerless fished out a knife. With a ferocious expression in his eyes, he roared and stabbed towards Xiao Bing’s stomach; his execution completely ruthless.
The reason why this Brother Fingerless was called Fingerless was because previously, even after having his finger chopped off, he endured the pain and proceeded onto stabbing three-four enemies. That was also the trigger for Brother Fingerless’ soaring reputation. One could say that he was quite a vicious character.
However, sometimes, the difference in strengths couldn’t be supplemented merely by bravery and ruthlessness. Xiao Bing grabbed his wrist and twisted his entire arm behind his body. Even the faraway spectators could clearly hear the sound of bones breaking. Even the ruthless Brother Fingerless let out a blood curdling scream as if a pig was being slaughtered.
Yezi walked over. Fumingly staring at Brother Fingerless, she kicked right between his legs. The latter again let out a blood curdling scream, foam coming from his mouth. His eyes twisted and rolled and he directly passed out.
Xiao Bing cold between his legs. This little girl was too fiercely.
Yezi then sweetly smiled and said, “Brother Bing, thanks for helping me. Come, I invite you to have a drink outside!”
Looking at Brother Fingerless’ dead-dog like figure lying on the ground, Xiao Bing’s mood also improved quite a bit. He immediately agreed with a smile, “It will be rude to decline your gratitude.”
The crowd naturally gave them way. Everybody watched Xiao Bing with a gaze of reverence. Only after the two left, they let out big sighs of relief.
Xiao Bing didn’t expect that Yezi’s gratitude would be buying kebab and beer, then taking a taxi to the riverbank.
The two sat on the sandbank and watched the torrential river water. Yezi opened her beer can and said, “Cheers!”
Xiao Bing also smilingly lifted his beer can and bumped with hers, then took two huge gulps.
“Thank you for back then. If not for you, tonight I really could have suffered.” Yezi said furiously, “There’s such an evil tyrant nearby college. Who knows how many college students has been bullied by him. Do me and my friends really have to avoid walking alone in the Civil Lines?”
Xiao Bing smilingly said, “As long as there are people, bad guys will naturally follow. Actually, you don’t need to thank me. Even if I haven’t acted, you wouldn’t have suffered. Isn’t that so?”
