Transcending the Nine Heavens - Chapter 821 Share The Booty!
Sha Xinliang’s eyes were cold, and he yelled, “Xiao Yulong, are these words said by you, and there’s not a wrong word?” Suddenly, his eyes shot out two fiery rays of light!
They firmly fixed on Xiao Yulong’s eyes.
Xiao Yulong’s nerves were already on the verge of collapsing. But his cultivation was locked at this moment. How could he resist against Sha Xinliang’s mind-controlling technique? At once, his mind was overtaken by Sha Xinliang.
Then he started to spill the beans and recite how the accident started. The officers compared his words to the confessions. They were exactly the same.
The three people who were arrested together with Xiao Yulong let out a long sigh. The knew that the game was completely over. There was no chance of even revoking the confessions. And the Xiao clan would also be in great troubles!
Who would have thought that in confronting a kid, who had just arrived at the Upper Three Heavens and had only a small medical center, such huge trouble would be stirred up?
Then, the ‘criminals’ signed each confession. At such a stage, there’s no use in denying at all; Besides, Sha Xinliang had mind-controlling power. Their signatures could still be obtained if they were mind-controlled by Sha Xinliang. Even though this martial technique could not force a person to perform challenging actions, forcing him to sign and print fingerprints could still be easily performed.
Holding on to this thick booklet of confessions, Sha Xinliang’s eyes looked as cold as ice, “Detain these few people in the death cells. Get them detained separately. Let them live comfortably every day. How can I forgive them so easily when they want to cut off my means of sustenance? As for the six people at the start, torture them with any means. Their lives are not important now!”
He snorted heavily and said, “This is an ironclad case. Let’s see what response the Xiao clan will give us! We’re law-enforcement officers! How can we be victimized so casually by the Xiao clan? Has flagrant resistance against law-enforcement processes long been the family rule and strategy of the Xiao clan?”
The four people in front of him felt that their visions blacked out and they passed out together.
Looking at the four poor things taken down, Sha Xinliang waved his hands to allow the officers at both sides of him to retreat, only leaving with him Chu Yang and the ten law-enforcement officers who were ‘seriously injured and at risk of dying’. Till all the other personnel had left, he said softly, “Get up.”
The ten people turned their bodies and crept up at the same time.
Sha Xinliang said, “After you get your compensations, arrange your family members well. If anyone of you wants to be shadow guards, you can request me now. I can get you a case record that you’ve died from an intractable disease.”
The ten people were all overjoyed.
After working for a long time, Sha Xinliang finally finished his business, and spoke to Chu Yang, “Little brother, how is it?”
“Great! Really great! As great as a mountain!” Chu Yang raised a thumb as he praised Sha Xinliang profusely, “Elder brother, you really know how to play fast and loose. You have crisp hands and you’re able to make sharp decisions. I really admire you.”
Sha Xinliang laughed sheepishly.
Chu Yang pondered, “But… this seems to be a little overdone. You may offend the Xiao clan.”
Sha Xinliang sighed and said, “Little brother, you don’t know us law-enforcement officers… or I can say that there are not a lot of good people among the law-enforcement officers, and instead, there are plenty of greedy and sensual people! Bribery and law-breaking are also common. But all these depend on the circumstances.”
“But no matter how bad we are, since each of us wears this uniform, we must carry out our responsibilities wholeheartedly! Furthermore, there’s an assessment every year in various regions, which is to evaluate the stability and security of every region! The results of the assessment are used to determine our promotion. Even if we don’t take our responsibilities for the sake of the well-being of the masses, we still have to do so for the sake of our own promotions. At least, we have to maintain an image of stability in the region we are in charge of!”
“So, before that, we would try to let pass all the ordinary crimes.”
Sha Xinliang smiled bitterly, “But this time around, Xiao Yulong has indeed gone too far. Adding on to the accident involving the short fatty, there’s no hope for this region to pass the assessment this year! Since it’s hopeless, what am I still afraid of? I should well use the Xiao clan to assert our authority! This may redeem some impacts of the said above. So, offending the Xiao clan… is nothing great. If the law-enforcement officers do not offend any people, our authority would be taken over…”
Chu Yang nodded and sank into deep thoughts, “I see.”
Sha Xinliang said, “I’ll pass all the case records to let the regional law-enforcement master have a look! And he would be responsible for communicating with the Xiao clan. In short, there’s no ground for the reputation of the law-enforcement officers to be blemished, and the blood of law-enforcement officers can’t be shed in vain.”
Chu Yang said, “What if the Xiao clan came to claim for their people?”
Sha Xinliang smiled lightly and said, “Little brother, you’re frank and good-natured, but inexperienced in life. I want to give you a warning.”
Chu Yang said respectfully, “Please say, elder brother, I’ll listen carefully.”
Sha Xinliang held his own hands behind his back and said calmly, “We must kill all the snakes we’ve met! If you offend someone, don’t ever think of apologizing to him. You might as well offend him further! Offend him completely! If you want to repair your damaged relations by apologizing, you’ll be the one to be dead!”
“Ordinary people may forgive one another and bury the hatchet, but among martial practitioners… this is impossible!”
Chu Yang thought for a while, and finally said gratefully, “I’ll bear in mind your invaluable advice.”
Sha Xinliang smiled lightly and said in a low voice, “I shall not conceal from you. I’ll definitely not allow Xiao Yulong and his accomplices to live till the time when they’re allowed to go out. So, the Xiao clan cannot claim the people they want alive!”
He squinted his eyes and said, “If he really goes out, you’ll be in danger!” And he laughed, “If you’re in danger, we’ll also be in danger…”
The duo smiled at each other and smiled.
Chu Yang said, “I still have the feeling that this is a trap. Will law-enforcement master… blame you because of this?”
Sha Xinliang laughed, “Little brother, the entire world is like a huge trap, while we’re living in it. Although this is a trap, what’s the use of the trap if Xiao Yulong doesn’t send people here?”
“Since he had come and injured people, then this trap isn’t a trap! It’s a fact! An ironclad case!”
He laughed coldly, “There’re so many clans in this Flat Mountain Ridge. Why aren’t other people trapped?”
Chu Yang felt at ease and said, “Big brother, you’re right.”
At this moment, those officers who went to the Xiao clan had already returned. They moved in two large trunks. The trunks were opened and everyone realized that they were completely filled with purple crystals!
“Sir, there are 13000 purple crystals altogether. I’ve finished counting all of them!” the law-enforcement officer bowed at one knee and reported.
Sha Xinliang said lightly, “You can retreat now and go get your rewards from the Practice Hall.”
That law-enforcement officer thanked Sha Xinliang and got away.
Sha Xinliang turned around and said smilingly, “Little brother, all these are your compensation. I’ll send you back with my carriage later on. Haha, at such a young age, you’ve now become one of the top billionaires in the Flat Mountain Ridge.”
Chu Yang’s face turned solemn and he said, “Brother Sha, I can’t keep these purple crystals.”
Sha Xinliang was very curious as he asked, “Why?”
Chu Yang smiled, “Brother Sha, you know clearly that my loss isn’t that much. If I take all these purple crystals, I’ll feel insecure.”
Not waiting for Sha Xinliang to open his mouth, he said, “How about this, these purple crystals shall be split between Brother Qin and you.” Chu Yang smiled sincerely, “Didn’t I say before that if my two brothers help me, I’ll be responsible to get back the purple crystals that both of you used to purchase the medicines. This is why I dared to report so many losses… Now, how can I keep such a sum of purple crystals?”
Sha Xinliang was unhappy. He said, “Little brother, you would be slapping both of our faces.”
As he said, Qin Baoshan walked in to persuade Chu Yang to keep those purple crystals to himself, but Chu Yang only shook his head and refused whatsoever. In the end, Sha Xinliang and Qin Baoshan had almost become angry, but Chu Yang still insisted not to take them.
While the duo appreciated Chu Yang, at the same time, they were also a bit helpless.
The duo really wanted Chu Yang to accept the purple crystals, so as to further confirm their relationships, and to get more protection for their lives from Chu Yang. But Chu Yang also sincerely wanted the duo to keep the purple crystals, so as to lay the foundation for carrying out his future plans successfully.
For the moment, there was a stalemate.
Finally, all three people sighed.
Chu Yang had no choice but to say, “If this is the case, I have an idea.”
“What idea?” the duo followed up.
“There’re 13000 purple crystals here. I shall take 1000 of them, and the rest shall be split among both of you,” Chu Yang negotiated, “If you don’t accept this proposal, I’ll quit right now.”
Sha Xinliang and Qin Baoshan shook their heads and sighed, “Little brother, you’re really…”
At a loss of what to do, the duo finally kept 5,000 purple crystals each to themselves, while gave the remaining 3,000 to Chu Yang. Sha Xinliang said, “If little brother still doesn’t want to accept them, I’ll smash all the 13,000 purple crystals. Everyone shall not have any of them…”
Thus, Chu Yang, the ‘victim’, had a further 3,000 purple crystals as he walked out of the Law Enforcement Hall!
So, while Big Boss Chu opened five days of business and was absent for three and a half days, he still earned… almost 5,000 purple crystals!…
What a happy thing!
And this time around, Sha Xinliang and Qin Baoshan were more zealous towards Chu Yang.
Both Sha Xinliang and Qin Baoshan personally sent Chu Yang back to the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall using Sha Xinliang’s private carriage. The three chatted all the way back.
After Chu Yang was dropped off the carriage, Sha Xinliang and Qin Baoshan returned by the same route that they had come.
It was full of people in front of the Purple Crystals Huichun Hall. Almost all members from the Yang clan and Chu clan were having a meeting here. Not far away from here, various big clans were secretly gathering information on Xiao Yulong.
After a long time, everyone naturally knew that the accident had happened here.
Everyone widened their eyes as they saw that Chu Yang was sent back through Sha Xinliang’s carriage.
“What happened?” Yang Bao asked as he was the first to come up, and he clenched onto his grandson’s clothes.
“What things would there be?” Chu Yang asked casually, “Everything is resolved. And the law-enforcement officers had already looked into the accident carefully and given an impartial verdict. They gave the criminals a very harsh punishment, and seeing that I was shocked very badly, they specially sent me back… That’s all. Hahaha, that’s all…”
That’s all? So casual…
Everyone gazed at each other.
