110 Chapter 110. Brought Into The Underworld by The Owner
Could they still let them go? Su Qing fluttered down from the tree like a falling leaf. The spy who had just stood up was so frightened by Su Qing that he opened his mouth to shout, but Su Qing broke his neck with a snap.
The other bandit wanted to run when he heard Su Qing’s voice, but he was kicked to the ground by Su Qing. His neck was also broken.
Her speed was as fast as lightning, and she made no sound. However, the sound of the bandit falling to the ground still caught Ji Shuisheng’s attention. He shouted at Su Qing’s position,
The villagers were like birds startled by the mere twang of a bow. When they heard Ji Shuisheng’s shout, they were so frightened that they stood up and looked at the pitch-black surroundings in fear.
“It’s me,” she said.
Su Qing walked up from the high post and said in a deep voice.
Seeing that it was Su Qing, everyone heaved a sigh of relief. The exhausted villagers sat back on the ground and prepared to sleep longer. However, Su Qing’s words scared them.
“There are two bandits scouts in the woods. From what they said, the bandits have caught up. I think they will catch up with us soon.
“Ah, what do we do now?”
Everyone panicked when they heard that the bandits had caught up, like ants on a hot pan.
“Running away won’t solve the problem.”
Ji Shuisheng’s bright eyes glinted with the cold light of the night. He had made up his mind to kill. He wanted to eliminate all the bandits biting them and never let them go to prevent any future trouble.
“Shuisheng, what do you want to do? We’ll fully support you.”
Qiu Yongkang could tell that Ji Shuisheng had decided and told him.
“Dig a trap and set up a trap. I want to exterminate these bandits here.”
Ji Shuisheng’s eyes were deep as he looked at the dense pitch-black forest. He wanted to make sure that these bandits would not be able to return. He had learned some strange Arts of concealment from his foster father and could use the local materials to make some mechanisms.
Su Qing looked approvingly at Ji Shuisheng’s tall figure. He was a natural leader, calmly issuing orders. Under the moonlight, he was surrounded by the villagers of Peach Blossom Cove.
“Daniu, you and Zhong Yong will set up traps on the way here. The bottom of the pits will be filled with sharpened bamboo, and the top will be covered and protected.”
The traps were most effective at night. The bandits would not expect the villagers to set up traps to kill them if they could not see their feet clearly in the dark.
“Seventh brother, Yongkang, you guys go and cut the bamboo. The more, the better.”
Ji Shuisheng then instructed Qiu Yongkang while he walked toward Su Qing. Su Qing looked at him, thinking that Ji Shuisheng would assign her some mission. In the end, Ji Shuisheng said,
“Su Qing, do you still have poison?”
Su Qing nodded and turned to the carriage. She took out a cloth bag. Xiao Qi had already prepared the poison.
It was a system that treated and saved people. It had been brought into the underworld by its owner and became a poison that killed people at any time.
Su Qing handed the poison to Ji Shuisheng and said,
“It needs to be dissolved in water.”
Ji Shuisheng nodded and went to work. The women of Peach Blossom Cove also went to help dig the traps. Everyone worked together to fight against the bandits. With Ji Shuisheng and Su Qing around, they were the stabilizing force. Everyone calmed down after a short period of panic.
Su Qing was not idle either. The best weapon to wait for an opportunity was a bow and arrow. However, a bow and arrow were less helpful than a close-range crossbow. Su Qing asked Ji Shuisheng for a treasured saber.
Ji Shuisheng didn’t even ask her what she would use it for and just gave her the knife.
Su Qing cut down two pieces of bamboo and asked Xiao Qi to draw the crossbow. She began to make a simple crossbow.
The arrows needed for a crossbow weren’t as long as a bow. They were lethal at close range but didn’t require much strength.
Everyone was silently preparing, so no one noticed what Su Qing was doing.
A simple crossbow could be made by using rubber bands and chopsticks. However, no rubber bands existed in ancient times, so hair was the only way. Su Qing untied her long hair and cut off a bunch without hesitation, using bamboo and hair to make a simple crossbow.
Su Qing called Qiu Yongkang and seventh brother Jiang over and taught them how to use the crossbow. She tested it out and found that it was pretty intense. After making the crossbow, she sharpened a pile of bamboo to make the arrows.
Qiu Yongkang saw how powerful Su Qing’s simple weapon was. He was shocked. He felt that Su Qing was unfathomable, and his respect for her grew.
Ji Shuisheng dipped the sharpened bamboo tip into the pot of dissolved poison and buried it in the dug trap. Then, he used a branch to cover the trap and sprinkled a thick layer of leaves on top as a disguise. After ensuring everything was safe, he instructed Zhong Yong and Li Daniu to retreat quickly to the high post and avoid the trap.
After this, he went to the forest to set up a mechanism. He used the local materials to make sharp sword-like hidden weapons with sharpened bamboo. He placed a rope made of vines at the position where he entered the forest. As long as someone came in and touched the rope, these bamboo arrows would shoot out in unison.
Everything was ready. Ji Shuisheng climbed a tree and looked down at the road leading into the forest from the official road. Since they were riding horses, they would take the official road. They could be sure that the bandits would enter from here.
Even if they walked through the forest, they were not afraid. They had already set up a trap, so there was no need for anyone to guard the place.
The villagers were all very nervous. They couldn’t help with other things but still used stones to hit people. The men held their hoes tightly and raised their forks while the women picked up a pile of stones and placed them under their feet.
Everyone’s unity was unprecedented because they would die if they didn’t resist. If they fought, they still had hope of living.
Su Qing sat on the carriage shaft with the steel knife she had snatched from the bandits. She had one foot on the shaft, and her head was leaning on the carriage with her eyes closed.
After midnight, crows cawed and flew out of the forest. A large group of men in black appeared at the intersection. They also noticed the carriage on the hill.
Someone reported to the boss. The bandit leader with two hammers on his back looked fierce. He looked at the carriage on the high post and spat on the ground. He ordered the bandits behind him,
“Brothers, leave no one alive. Don’t even take the girls.”
The bandits didn’t want to alert the people of Peach Blossom Cove either. After all, there were capable people here. They agreed very softly. If they wanted to launch a sneak attack, they would be unprepared when people were the most sleepy in the middle of the night. At that time, it would be like a wolf entering a flock of sheep. They just had to kill.
The bandits held their knives, focusing on the high post. They walked very lightly for fear of alarming the villagers. The few people in front suddenly stepped on air and fell into the trap.
There were a few screams. The bandits who fell into the trap were all pierced through by the bamboo at the bottom of the pit. They died a horrible death. Then, two more bandits fell in without stopping. The other bandits were so scared that they dared not move forward.
They couldn’t see clearly in the dark and didn’t know how many traps were waiting for them.
“Damn it, enter from the forest.”
The brigand leader saw that the road was blocked and ordered his men to pass through the forest.
Ji Shuisheng had been aiming at these people from the tree. After seeing who gave the order, he aimed the bow and arrow in his hand at him without hesitation.
