Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 817 My Losses Are Too Grea
Behind Sha Xinliang was a middle-aged man who was writing vigorously. Obviously, he was Sha Xinliang’s secretary. He said respectfully, “Commander, I’ve finished recording.”
“This is a big case!” Sha Xinliang said severely, “Don’t make a single mistake. Everything must be written in accordance with the real situation!”
The secretary said aloud, “Everything is correct, Commander!”
Sha Xinliang nodded satisfactorily and said, “Continue to record.”
Sha Xinliang looked stern and just. He asked the ten law-enforcement officers who were hurt, “Has Boss Chu spoken the truth?”
The ten law-enforcement officers stood upright and their sounds rang clear as they said, “He has said everything correctly!”
Sha Xinliang asked in a cautious and responsible manner, “Did all of you come in only to drink tea?”
“Yes, Commander!” the ten said in unison, as if they were rehearsed before, “This afternoon, Boss Chu saw us sweating heavily as we patrolled the streets, so he enthusiastically hosted us…”
Not to mention the six people from the Xiao clan, who were now cursing heavily in their hearts, Chu Feiyan almost laughed aloud. Even Sha Xinliang and Qin Baoshan frowned: All of you were Martial Emperors, how the Motherf**ker could you sweat so heavily when you were only walking? And it’s almost midnight now! How could you drink tea all the way from afternoon till now? Even Martial Emperors would have their bladders burst like this…
“Were you really in your uniforms when they struck you? And they struck you once they came up to you?” Sha Xinliang immediately switched the topic, with his voice sounding colder and colder.
Even fools could see that something was wrong. When Sha Xinliang came in, these law-enforcement officers were in entirely black suits… was he blind? He even asked this?
The ten of them said aloud, “Yes, Commander. After we tried to stop them and before we started the fight, not only were we all wearing our uniforms, but we also showed them our identity cards. But these bunch of rascals did not retreat. They became more aggravated and began to fight with us!”
The ten of them said guiltily, “We were not versed in our work. We’re so sorry that we’ve brought shame to you, Sir…”
Sha Xinliang agreed and asked, “Did they really say that law-enforcement officers are asses?”
The ten responded angrily, “Yes, Commander! These six people are evil, sinful, cruel and can never be pardoned!”
“I’m pissed off!” Sha Xinliang yelled, “All of you were actually injured! These were all done by them?”
Instantly, the ten people became indignant, and said, “Yes! Commander, please inspect this matter carefully. Out of the ten of us, nine were hit by swords, while the other one’s internal organs were severely blasted. All of us are at risk of dying…”
“So severe! These rascals are so lawless! This is a rebellion! Rebellion!” Sha Xinliang said with rage, “They’ve actually injured you so badly!”
“Yes! Commander, please defend us! No one should ever go against law-enforcement officers, and our reputation as law-enforcement officers should not be blemished!” The ten law-enforcement officers who were ‘at risk of dying’ lifted their chests and said loud and clear. Their eyes also shone as they said.
We just tolerated a stab each from the Xiao clan, but we could swindle many things from them… That would be even more meriting than to tolerate ten stabs.
Oh no! The six people lowered their heads. They were in utter despair.
Sha Xinliang said seriously, “Report all your injuries to my secretary! I’ll definitely bring justice to all of you! If I don’t punish these people seriously, where’s our prestige? Where’s our dignity? These people had blatantly stirred up a battle in broad daylight; They are simply inhuman and insane!”
“Yes, Commander,” the ten people were more excited now.
“I know all of you feel wronged, and I also know that you’re all loyal to our law-enforcement organization. Don’t conceal any of the injuries that you’ve suffered. Speak the truth.”
Sha Xinliang spoke in a very heavy tone.
“Secretary, I was stabbed at my heart. My wound is very severe!” the guy who had a cut on his shoulder said enthusiastically.
“Secretary, my two legs were broken!” a guy who had a wound on his ass said excitedly.
“Secretary, the Baihui acupoint on my head was hurt by a sword, while the Yongquan acupoint on my feet was stabbed by a dagger. My back was attacked 103 times by a palm, which has caused 16 ribs to be broken!” a guy who had dropped a piece of scalp said.
“Secretary, I was hit 36 times by Dalarnite Palms, attacked 72 times by some fatal kicks and suffered from 351 finger strikes. Now, I’m badly wounded all over my body. I don’t have any complete piece of skin on my body now…” the last member who did not suffer from any wounds said, as he blinked his eyes and cracked his brains on what to say.
“So despicable!” Sha Xinliang roared, and his face flushed. He was not angered by this, but embarrassed. Motherf**ker, your heart was stabbed? Your back was attacked 103 times by a palm? 16 ribs of yours were broken? You even dared to bullshit all these…
“Let them sign!” Sha Xinliang made a lightning decision to resolve his awkwardness. Looks like this case should end here.
As such, the ten law-enforcement officers, who ‘suffered from fatal wounds, and were going to die’, rushed forward fiercely.
The six people were filled with despair, and they desperately refused to confess their crimes. But their cultivations were locked. Moreover, how would the ten law-enforcement officers be modest to them? With a few kicks, the six people were now rolling like balls on the ground. After making a few cuts on every one of them, each of the law-enforcement officers dipped their fingers into the cuts to get some blood and pressed their fingers fiercely against the case report to produce their fingerprints…
“Human testimony and physical evidence are all collected! The criminals have also confessed all their crimes. Now, this is an ironclad case! Guards, come and detain these six villains and put them behind bars!”
Sha Xinliang shouted spiritedly, “To prevent them from committing suicide by chewing off their tongues, you shall remove all their lower jaws first. After you go back, organize skilled manpower to interrogate them tonight. You should use whatever means available to seize out the mastermind behind this case! Use them as deterrents against all those wicked people who have the thought of challenging against us law-enforcement officers!”
Chu Yang coughed aside.
Sha Xinliang understood, and turned around to advise the secretary seriously, “Inquire Boss Chu on how much treasures and purple crystals he had lost, and examine the seriousness of the injuries of Fourth Elder Chu… –record everything down for me!”
The secretary said aloud, “Yes, I’ll definitely do my work properly!”
Sha Xinliang then turned around to look at Chu Yang, and said seriously, “Boss Chu, I’m very sorry. There’s even such bunch of rascals occurring in this area under my jurisdiction… Such a huge, earth-shattering case! Boss Chu, be assured that I’ll definitely manage this case impartially and bring justice to you. After I’ve seized out the mastermind behind all of these, I’ll definitely compensate your losses.”
Chu Yang was so touched that he clasped his hands before his chest and said tearfully, “Although this is the first time that I meet you, I can see that Commander Sha is really a good officer who takes good care of the well-being of the residents! With Commander Sha in the Flat Mountain Ridge, it’s really a blessing to all of the residents living here. This shows that Heaven indeed has eyes! There’s an ancient saying that goes: Good has its reward and evil has its recompense. Everywhere that Commander Sha goes to, justice prevails!”
Even Sha Xinliang’s bold head flushed under Chu Yang’s praise. Sha Xinliang coughed twice and said, “Boss Chu, you’re flattering me.”
The secretary arrived before Chu Yang and said kindly, “Boss Chu, what losses do you have? I need to record them down.”
Chu Yang gave a long sigh, and replied with extreme bitterness, “My losses are too great…”
He spoke with utmost resentment and grievances, “My elixirs were all gone. I had initially planned to use them to benefit the masses. These are all valuable goods that are passed down for 70 generations from my ancestors, yet they were all gone…” Boss Chu almost cried out.
The secretary said hurriedly, “Boss Chu, I’m so sorry for you. Let’s talk about your losses first.” He could not help but curse angrily in his heart: Does your Chu clan even have more than 70 generations… in the Upper Three Heavens?
Boss Chu wiped his tears, “My losses are too great… Among which are ten pieces of Snow Ginsengs aged 1000 years old, five pieces of Golden Ginsengs aged 2000 years old, 6 grams of Solomon’s Seal plants aged 5000 years old, 6 Purple Lotuses aged 5000 years old… three pieces of Snow Ganoderma aged 2000 years old, a piece of Polygonum Multiflorum aged 10000 years old, one lump of full-size Floating Essence, 9 blades of of Grass from the Cold Sea of Fire… one gram of Snow-Spirit Essence aged 10000 years…”
Chu Yang talked glibly for 15 minutes, and finally gasped a breath and said in a generous manner, “These are all the valuable things. As for the rest, I’ll let them pass…”
The secretary’s face started to twitch. Oh my gosh… This list is sufficient for the entire Xiao clan to shift their base in the Flat Mountain Ridge… And God knows if they can even compensate all these…
“And there’re the losses for the facilities of my medical center… But those are not very costly. I’ll also let those pass,” Chu Yang sighed, “The main thing is that my fourth uncle’s injuries are very serious! He was struck on his head, and his head experienced serious concussions. His eyesight has already turned back. His chest was struck once by a sword and beaten nine times by a palm. His various organs were also cracked… His legs suffered from seven stabs from daggers and three stabs from swords, I’m afraid his two legs would also… Well, my younger sister suffered the most. She has suffered great shock, and now her brain isn’t working too good now…”
Chu Yang sighed heavily and said sadly, “Although I don’t have many injuries, I was slapped several times. When you just came, I was vomiting blood. I vomited a basin of it…”
The secretary’s facial muscles twitched as he recorded down carefully. His head was covered with sweat, and his handwriting had also turned messy…
“Of course, other losses are… The 2,000 purple crystals we kept in our shop has vanished…” Chu Yang said indignantly, “They simply want us to die…”
It’s you who want the Xiao clan to die…
Sha Xinliang exclaimed at one side, “God damn it… so black-hearted…” God knows to whom Sha Xinliang was pertaining this to — Chu Yang or the six people from the Xiao clan…
The secretary asked, “Boss Chu, do you have any other losses?”
Chu Yang flipped his eyelids and pondered for a while. Then, he said unreluctantly, “No. Uh, yes, loss in our reputation. We’ve experienced such robbery after opening this medical center for only just a few days…”
Finally, everything was over. The secretary wiped away a handful of sweat and placed the record in front of Chu Yang, saying, “Boss Chu, take a look at this. Is it all these?”
Chu Yang nodded his head repetitively, and praised, “You’ve recorded very correctly. It’s all these.”
“Then… please sign on it…” the secretary almost could not tolerate Chu Yang. I’ve written exactly what you’ve said, how could it be incorrect?
