Chapter 50: Chaotic Flowing Snake
Translator: Tim Editor: Tehrn / Carolin
After Ye Mo had knocked the last opponent out, he turned to the driver and said, Come over and help me out with a small favor; drag these scum with me.
Ill help you. Xiao Lei rushed up, her face still red; apparently, her excitement hadnt died down. It was as though she met the legendary prince-on-a-white-stallion that suddenly came down to rescue her. It was like a dream, and things happened too fast.
Zhuo Aiguo had already calmed down, he silently rejoiced about his correct decision and further made up his mind that he was to establish a good connection with Ye Mo no matter what; he might be the student of some legendary Ancient Martial Arts Master for all he knew. Although he heard that there were some ancient martial arts families in Beijing, these families were usually very mysterious and wouldnt come out into the normal world, nor would they become athletes either.
However, from what he knew, some families would select a few elite members to go into the special departments of the country. These departments only served the country, and even some leaders couldnt have the privilege of being protected by these people.
Ye Mo looked curiously at Xiao Lei who ran over excitedly and shook his head speechlessly: This womans mood changed so fast! He didnt talk to her and just carried two unconscious thugs into the forest.
The chauffeur Xiao Yu also dragged two people and followed him. Ye Mo dumped the two in the woods and carried over another two. Xiao Lei saw that Ye Mo ignored her and was a bit annoyed, but even when she used all her might, she couldnt keep up with Ye Mo while dragging someone. At last, Xiao Yu helped her pull that one away. Seeing that all seven of them had been brought here, Ye Mo told Xiao Yu, You guys go in the car and wait for me a bit, Ill come over soon.
After Xiao Yu had left, Ye Mo kicked one of them awake. These people, mostly from Yue, were blocking the roads and robbing its passersby. After he had kicked all of them awake, Ye Mo asked where their base was and found out that it was actually in a private manor not far away from Flowing Snake town. Also, it was pretty much as Xiao Yu said; there were indeed 13 people before, but now, there was just 7 of them remaining.
At first, Ye Mo had planned to destroy their base when he would reach to Flowing Snake as he didnt like to leave things unfinished, but since there was no one left, he didnt plan on going anymore. Ye Mo dumped all of their bodies into the mountain stream. He had only found some Yue currency on these people, but Ye Mo didnt take a single one; to him, this money was worth as much as money for the dead, perhaps even less.
He didnt understand how these people would be so poor when they robbed all day; maybe they just didnt carry the valuable things with them and left everything at their hideout.
When Ye Mo returned to the mountain road, Xiao Yu and Zhuo Aiguo had cleared out the obstacles. The three had already got into the car and were waiting for him. Unexpectedly, no one asked about where the thugs went after he got inside the car.
I cant take this money, you drove off the thugs, so you keep it. Xiao Lei gave the 50,000 dollars Zhuo Aiguo had offered her to Ye Mo.
Ye Mo pushed it aside and said, No need, you can keep the money. Im hired by boss Zhuo, and hes already paying for my salary. Besides, your friend ditched you, so take that as his compensation.
Hmph, I dont know him, that animal Xiao Lei still wanted to say something, but Ye Mo just told Xiao Yu to start driving.
Mr. Ye, we are really lucky to have you with us this time. If it werent for you, we wouldve really been in trouble this time, Zhuo Aiguo hurriedly expressed his gratitude to Ye Mo. Zhuo Aiguo was telling the truth, if he hadnt met Xiao Lei, he wouldve only lost tens of thousands of dollars. However, after meeting her, Zhuo Aiguos character wouldnt allow him to be a bystander as she was taken away, and if any conflict had occurred, the results would have been disastrous.
Ye Mo waved his hands and said, Boss Zhuo, you are too polite, this was nothing. Besides, this is what we agreed upon at the beginning; otherwise, what would be the point of hiring me?
Hearing Ye Mos words, Zhuo Aiguos was in a good mood and said, Im a few years older, if you dont mind, Mr. Ye, just call me Brother Zhuo, and Ill just call you Brother Ye.
This sounds great, Ye Mo nodded in approval. Zhuo Aiguo was not a bad person, someone who was worth connecting to. When Xiao Lei asked for Ye Mos name from Zhuo Aiguo, she felt this name was a bit familiar, as though she heard it somewhere before, but just couldnt recall it for the moment.
Journalist Xiao, although Flowing Snake is a borderline town, it is one of the most chaotic places in the region, and its even the boundary between three countries. Why would you come here? Zhuo Aiguo turned his head and asked.
Xiao Leis thought process was interrupted and could only respond helplessly: Its because I heard that the tourists who come to Gui Lin would disappear near the famous tourist spots, so I wanted to come here and interview a few people. After coming here, I found out that most people had gone missing after going to Flowing Snake so now, I wanted to go there to see for myself. If I didnt encounter you guys, I really dont know what wouldve happened. Im really grateful.
Ye Mo was laughing to himself. This female journalist was too nave; she was too used to living in big cities that she thought if she just took out her journalist license, those thugs would just surrender. He was literally speechless.
Zhuo Aiguo also had no idea what to say. He knew Xiao Lei, she was a famous journalist that just rose to fame over the past couple of years. However, he wasnt familiar with her so he couldnt point fingers in front of her face. Xiao Lei saw these peoples complexions and understood how they thought, but she couldnt really rebuke them as she realized how nave she was. When she first wanted to come to Gui Lin, Wang Qianjun wanted to go with her no matter what, so he accompanied her all the way to Gui Lin and even got a BMW in Gui Lin city to drive her to Flowing Snake.
Wang Qianjuns handsome appearance did transmit people a good feeling, and she had a good feeling towards him as well; it was probably not long before she would have agreed to become his girlfriend. However, in a time of crisis, Xiao Lei understood that a handsome appearance was completely irrelevant to other things.
Ye Mo didnt talk anymore, he only looked around and enjoyed the sight. There were wild forests everywhere and very little people which was perfect for his cultivation, and even if the Song Family chased him here, he would have a way to escape. Ye Mo didnt think he was an invincible being right now, and he knew that there were a lot of people stronger than him right now. Besides, even modern firearms werent something he could defend against with his current powers.
Zhuo Aiguo and Xiao Lei meanwhile, were engaged in a heated conversation; however, Xiao Lei glanced at Ye Mo from time to time, yet, seeing that Ye Mo didnt have the urge to talk and seemed to be meditating, she dismissed the thought of talking to him.
Half an hour later, the Audi drove into a town, of which half was heavily fortified and had the appearance of a fortresse.
This is Flowing Snake, we have to do a few things first, so we can only leave tomorrow. Journalist Xiao, how about you? Are you coming with us or moving on your own? after the car had gone into Flowing Snake, Zhuo Aiguo looked at Xiao Lei and asked.
Before Xiao Lei could even answer, she saw two groups of people fighting in front of them. They were all holding weapons such as sticks, knives, and so on.
In a short moment, a few people who were bleeding all over, fell to the ground, moaning and screaming. However, after a long time, a group of individuals who looked like the police came over, and these people who were madly fighting just left while carrying the injured away. Surprisingly, the police didnt follow them and just went straight back to what they were doing.
Xiao Leis heart was beating rapidly as she looked on. She didnt think that things like this would occur in public which gave her a shocking awakening from her previously naive thoughts.
Flowing Snake is basically a place of anarchy, which was originally covered by the wilderness. However, after the 70s, due to the war, there were asylum seekers who gathered here. They came from the different countries around here and formed a fort-like town in the region. The police you saw previously were impromptu; therefore, there is hardly any place more chaotic than here, as if he had seen Ye Mo and Xiao Leis shock, Zhuo Aiguo took the initiative to explain. Although this was the first time he came to Flowing Snake, he had already gathered a lot of information before.
I... think Ill stay with Uncle Zhuo... Xiao Lei no longer dared to be that lone heroic journalist and chose to stay with them without hesitation.
