Chapter 24: Suspicion

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios

Shen Yijia spoke unhurriedly. Every time she spoke, she threw a punch. Her fist was fair and tender.

The punches seemed weak to the onlookers. Only the bandit leader, who was on the receiving end, knew how painful they were. Every punch made his head buzz.

Shen Yijia continuously aimed for his face.

The punches were fast and savage, raining down on his face. She had his collar in her grip, making it impossible for him to resist.

After a few punches, the bandit leader’s face was covered in blood.

If not for the fact that he couldn’t speak due to this onslaught, he would’ve wanted to shout at her to stop hitting his face.

At this moment, the other bandits finally reacted. When they saw their boss’s expression, they gulped nervously.

As one, they silently stepped back.

Madam Li heaved a sigh of relief.

Song Jingchen’s initial worry turned into surprise. Then, when he heard Shen Yijia’s words, he couldn’t help but smile as he found it funny.

As if he’d suddenly thought of something, he sized up the woman who had surprised him again and again.

Her speed from earlier… Shen Yijia was faster than he was even at his peak. Moreover, when he considered her performance tonight.

Was it really something a pampered lady could do?

Judging from her skills, she did not look like she could be bullied by a few wives of the Inner Residence.

“If she lied to me previously, then what was her motive? What did she want with me?”

Song Jingchen laughed at himself. Was there any value left in him for anyone to scheme against?

No, there was something else.

Thinking of this, a dark glint flashed across Song Jingchen’s eyes.

Brother Hao and Sister Huan had completely forgotten about their fear. Their eyes were filled with stars.

If not for the fact that this wasn’t the right occasion, they would have applauded and cheered. f𝚛e𝐞𝐰𝚎b𝚗o𝚟𝚎l.c𝗼m

“Damn… you’re all dead…” When he spat out his fifth tooth, the bandit leader finally found the right moment to speak. However, as soon as he opened his mouth, the fist smashed down upon him again.

The bandit leader was speechless.

“Can you let me finish?” he thought.

But his words proved to be slightly useful.

Two of the bandits mustered their courage and slashed at Shen Yijia from both sides.

Song Jingchen hesitated for a moment, but he still gritted his teeth and shot an arrow at the person behind Shen Yijia. At the same time, he reminded her, “Be careful.”

Uncle Yang also wanted to rush up immediately, but before he could do so…

Shen Yijia raised the bandit leader and slammed him against the man’s blade. He was like a light paper figure in her hand.

Two muffled groans could be heard at the same time. One came naturally from the bandit leader’s mouth, and the other…

Shen Yijia turned around. Oh my.

The person behind her had a bamboo arrow stuck in his forehead. His eyes widened in disbelief. He fell back and died.

This made the remaining bandits even more terrified. It turned out that this weak-looking girl was not the only freak here. The sickly-looking man was a freak too.

What kind of demons have they provoked this time?

Shen Yijia blinked.

Could she scream right now?

She took a deep breath and suppressed it. She threw the bandit leader, whose left arm had been slashed open, to the ground and stomped on him.

She gave a thumbs-up to the person who had fallen to the ground in fear. Shen Yijia said sincerely, “You’re amazing. You even stabbed your own boss. He’s not dead yet though. Do you want to stab him again? This way, you can take his place and become the boss when you go back.”

That person was already scared out of his wits. When he heard Shen Yijia’s words, his legs went weak and he trembled as he defended himself. “I… I didn’t. It’s you… you used Boss as a shield against my sword.”

Shen Yijia rolled her eyes at him. “I’m your enemy. If I don’t use him as a shield, what am I supposed to do? Should I just stand here and let you stab me? However, you’re different. The two of you are on the same side.”
