”Ca-captain, There are like fifty of them, how can we take care of them all?

”You fool! Going against the horde of beasts is just suicide. ”

”Then, what do we do Captain? ”

”Hehe…save only those fat geese, we will be able to eat them dry later. ”

”You–you mean, as expected of the captain. ”

”Youll understand when you do this long enough. ”

”But we still have to fight and kill twenty of them. ”

”Leave the ones behind and focus on the ones closest to us. ”

”Then the kids from the dove city, are we leaving them behind? ”

”They already paid us before the journey, we can just leave them behind now. ”

”You–young master! Don do this to me. I have a family to feed, Pl–please. ”

”Why don you all just leave me alone? Just why? ”

”Young master just needs to sit there. Please, young master. I beg of you. ”

”I hate it. I hate all of you. You people– ”

”I beg of you, young master. I will do anything you ask after this. ”

”Please, young master… ”

”Yes…? Yes Ill do anything you ask…just this once please… ”

”Can you help me escape…? ”

”Yes…yes? Escape? ”

”Can you do it? ”

”Are you sure Captain? What if they later question us? We will lose our business near the dove city if they find out that we… ”

”What do you know? The money we will make from all these fat lambs is enough for us to move near the kingdom…if we give some to the scavenging groups near the kingdom, we can even join them. ”

”Brilliant, thats brilliant captain. ”

”Get to work, don let them die or else we won be getting any money. ”

”Yes yes Im on it Captain. ”

”You four come with me. Save all the ones wearing expensive looking clothes…save some women too if you can. ”

”Yes Yes at once, young master. Thank you, Thank you. ”

”I can even run away… ”

”Here, young master. ”

”Who are the people downstairs? ”

”Yes, young master. They are Oliver and Julia Desmo. The current head of the Desmo family and his daughter. ”

”The Desmo family? The urban construction conglomerate? ”

”Yes, young master. They are here to discuss the proposal the second and third elders brought forward recently. ”

”Tch, All they want is my damn signature. Why are they even keeping me alive? Wouldn it be better to just kill me and scheme to annex the business empire my parents left me? ”

”Young master shouldn say such words… ”

”Why? ”

”… ”

”Ah I get it! You will lose your job if I die. Haha ”

”That–that is not it young master…I just— ”

”Young master Chen, are you alright? ”

”I am fine. Are you okay? ”

”Just a minor wound, if you hadn saved me just now…Im afraid… ”

”How can I leave a lady to die? You don have to worry now, you should focus on treating your injury, lady Han. ”

”Ye–yes. I can help but admire your sword skills, young master chen. Even though you are the same age as us, to be able to defeat these beasts alone… ”

”Haha, Its not much, Lady Han. By the way, where is the boy that was following you? ”

”Him? Oh, he must have run away when the beasts first attacked. You don have to worry about him. ”

”Is that so? Thats unfortunate. One can outrun these beasts, even more so for mortals. ”

”Leave him be, Young master Chen, His stupidity will be the end of him. ”

”Well, Its unfortunate but I can do anything about it. Only the heavens will be able to save him. ”

”Forget about him, young master Chen. What will you be doing now? ”

”Ill go assist the captain and his people. We should save as many as possible. ”

”Young master Chen has a righteous spirit. This Han can only admire. ”

”Lady Han over praises me. I am just doing what anyone would do in my position. ”

”You are too humble. ”

”Let me bring you somewhere safe. The outer range is still dangerous. Youll be safe near the center. ”

”The–then I will have to bother young master Chen. ”

”Its no bother at all, Lady Han. ”

”Julia, You should learn from Young master Silver. He was in the top three of his university entrance examination this time. ”

”Yes, father. It is only expected of young master silver, as the heir of the Dellsworth family. ”

”Young Lady Julia overpraised me. The book you wrote on business structure and its evolution over the years was very detailed and informative, I learned a lot. ”

”I don deserve young master Silvers words as I am still lacking. ”

”Im sure that your ability will only improve down the line. Don forget me, an early reader of yours when your book becomes a bestseller. ”

”Haha, Young master Silver jests. My Julia still has a lot to learn. Thats why I brought her here today. ”

”Mr. Oliver did the right thing, after all, us old fogies can contend with the changing times and will eventually give way to the capable young generation. Haha ”

”Right thing you said there Mr. Bryce, the young should enjoy with the young unlike us, haha. ”

”Do try this aged wine, Mr. Oliver. Im sure youll find it to your liking. ”

”Oh? Then I won refuse your generosity. Haha ”

”Gentlemen, Lady Julia. It was nice meeting you, I will excuse myself now. ”

”You– ”

”Oh, young master Silver must be busy. Don mind us, please attend to your business. ”

”I appreciate Mr. Oliver for understanding. Then, I wish you goodnight. ”

”Goodnight to young master as well haha ”

”Goodnight, young master silver. ”

”Captain, The ones left are running away now. Should we chase them? ”

”No need. We should not poke the ones running away, we already lost a lot of men. ”

”Then, what should we do now? ”

”How many are still alive? ”

”They are all dead, and five ran away. ”

”Not the beasts, you bastard! The people! ”

”Oh…oh there are like twenty of them excluding our men. Half of them are the ones you told us to save, you know, the ones with expensive-looking clothing, and the rest are the lucky ones who managed to survive. ”

”Good good. We should be able to make it to the Azure Order sect in three days. ”

”Captain, There is this one guy. Do you know him? ”

”What are you talking about? ”

”This guy was together with the dove city kids, he killed around three beasts himself. ”

”Hmm? Three by himself? Is he from some martial family? ”

”He may actually be from some martial family. They train their children from a young age after all. ”

”Leave him alone then, Having one more skilled fighter is a good addition anyway. ”

”But…I thought youd tell us to kidnap him and extort the family behind. ”

”Thats why you
e a bastard and Im the captain, You fool. Do you think insignificant people like us can threaten those martial clans? Even the weakest martial clan has a few immortals. They can exterminate us with ease. Do you understand? Even if hes not from a martial clan, we don know for sure. Why take any unnecessary risk? ”

”As expected of the captain. You have thought it all out, I can compare. ”

”Thats because you think with your lower body, bastard. Besides, we saved a lot of well-off people, we should get a chunky reward from them, add it with all the materials we get from the beasts. Even if they are not immortal beasts, they will sell for quite a lot. ”

”Oooh…does that mean we are rich now? ”

”Bastard, get to work first. There should still be a couple of beasts in the vicinity, I will take care of them. You gather all those people who are still alive. Tell the rest to start collecting all that can sell from the dead beasts. ”

”Yes, Captain! ”
