Chapter 1139- Sealed Grounds Part 4
“This place should be the North Wind Plains.”
The North Wind was blowing on the plains. Mu Ru Yue pulled her windbreaker, raising her head to look at the boundless plains before her.
“But now, we are to search for the Nanyang Region of the North Wind Plains!”
Ye Wu Chen lowered his gaze to look at the side of the woman’s impeccable face. With a slight smile, he said, “Let’s go. I hope we can reach the Nanyang region within three days…”
The North Wind blew across the leaves, making the leaves give off rustlings sounds.
Yet, several figures leaped out from the thicket, blocking Mu Ru Yue’s and Ye Wu Chen’s path.
The leader was a lean and small-built youth from within that group of people. He pointed the knife in his hand toward the two of them as he threatened sinisterly, “We are the people of the Ba Wang (domineering king) Bandit Group. You are to quickly give us all of your valuables. Otherwise, you are not allowed to pass through this path1!”
“Wang Ba (bastard) Bandit Group? Cough! Cough!” Mu Ru Yue couldn’t help but stifle her laughs with coughs. With a smile in her eyes, she commented, “I didn’t expect someone will come up with such a name.”
“What nonsense are you spouting?” The little fella glared at Mu Ru Yue as he said furiously, “We are the Ba Wang Bandit Group, not Wang Ba. You are the damnable bastard instead! Quickly hand over your valuables.”
Mu Ru Yue smirked slightly with glimmers that flickered a couple of times in her eyes.
“I don’t have any valuables on me.”
“You have nothing on you?” The little fella widened his eyes as he said, “Where have you gotten the courage to appear before our Wang Ba… Oh no, Ba Wang Bandit Group’s eyes when you have nothing on you! Goddammit! I’m too unlucky today. The first person I tried to rob has no valuables!”
Mu Ru Yue was stunned this time.
‘Did he believe what I said just like that? If so, how can he be a bandit?’
“About that…” Glimmers shone past Mu Ru Yue’s eyes as she said with a smile, “Even though I have nothing on me, my people are behind. You can capture me and ask them for ransom after.”
The little fella was stunned before he suddenly laughed heartily.
“Woman, are you an idiot? I’ve already decided to let you off. Yet, you expose your wealth. Since you want to be captured that badly, I can grant you that wish. Someone, capture these two fellas back to the mountain.”
Ye Wu Chen didn’t say a word from the start. This was due to him believing that Mu Ru Yue must be wanting to rip someone off again by doing so.
The corner of his lips curved up uncontrollably, enhancing the beauty of his appearance…
“Chief! Chief! I’ve captured two people back!”
The little fella exclaimed upon entering the mountain door on top of a mountain.
Following that, there was a crude, robust man that came dashing out from within the mountain door. He chided with a black face, “Wang Shu (king tree), have water ended your brain? I had sent you out to rob people. Yet, what the fuck are you thinking by capturing two people back or do you want me to feed two more people?”
“Chief, please listen to my explanation first.” The little fella explained, feeling wronged, “They don’t have money on them. I originally planned to make them scram. However, this woman suggested I capture her and then ask for ransoms after. Therefore, I brought them here.”
The robust man looked strangely at Mu Ru Yue and said, “Does this woman has mental issues? You allowed her to leave but she, in the end, offered herself to be captured by us? I’ve been a bandit for many years but I’ve never seen such fool like herself before…”
‘If this fellow isn’t mentally impaired, she must be a fool then! Otherwise, how can she commit such an idiotic act?’
