As he spoke, he bowed deeply to everyone.
“There’s no need to say such courteous words. Who in the Green Forest doesn’t admire Brother Guo’s heroism? As long as we can save Brother Guo from danger, a little danger is nothing.” Xiang Tianjie cupped his fists in return.
Guo Haishen did not hesitate and nodded,
“I can’t thank you enough for your kindness! Brothers, if you break into the prison to save me, the state capital will definitely search wantonly and send troops to chase after me. Our priority now is to leave the city as soon as possible.”
“Brother Guo is right. Our next plan is to disguise ourselves and slip out of the city immediately.”
Xiang Tianjie nodded.
Not far away, Shi Qing was putting on makeup for everyone. He couldn’t help but laugh, “Brother Guo, don’t worry. There won’t be any pursuers for a while. I’m afraid the state government can’t care less about us prison breakers now.”
“What do you mean?”
Guo Haishen was a little curious.
Then, he looked around and realized that two faces he had seen last time were missing. His heart skipped a beat as he asked, “By the way, I wonder where Brother Gao Yun and Brother Chen Feng are?”
As soon as he finished speaking, he was surprised to discover that many people gave off an expression of awe when their names were mentioned.
Li Chun sighed,
“Brother Guo, you don’t know this, but in order to cover up our prison break and also to seek revenge for Brother Guo, Brother Chen Feng was willing to take the risk to personally break into the four noble families and cause chaos.
At this moment, he has already entered the He family and killed many guards, and has caused a huge commotion in this city. The attention of the soldiers is being held back by him, so they naturally have no time to care about our prison break.”
He spoke in an organized manner and quickly summarized Zhou Jing’s action.
When Guo Haishen heard what Zhou Jing had done from Li Chun, he was so shocked that he could not speak for a long time.
He felt a surge of warmth in his heart.
He did not expect that even though he had only met Zhou Jing once, not only was the other party willing to save him from prison, but he was also willing to help him take revenge despite the danger. What a hero!
Guo Haishen was extremely moved. He suddenly stood up and spoke in an agitated tone,
“Brother Chen is extremely loyal and thinks for me. How can I watch him take the risk for my sake? The four noble families have a grudge against me. I should have taken revenge myself, but Brother Chen took the risk to avenge me.
He’s fighting with his life on the line. How can I stand by and watch him leave alone?! Brothers, forgive me for not being able to leave the city with everyone. I’ll rush over to help Brother Chen at this instant!”
Everyone nearly jumped out of their skins when they heard his words. They hurriedly went forward to stop him.
“Brother Guo, you’re weak and haven’t recovered yet. You can’t fight anyone else now.”
“We understand what you mean, but everyone has worked together to save you. How can we watch you take the risk? Even Brother Chen doesn’t want to see you stay. If you insist on not leaving, won’t you be letting down our efforts and Brother Chen’s?”
After being persuaded by everyone, Guo Haishen gradually calmed down. He knew better than anyone that his body was not suitable for combat.
Not only would he not be able to help if he stayed, but he would also cause trouble for everyone and disrupt everyone’s long-planned plan.
Thinking of this, Guo Haishen could not help but sigh,
“Brothers, you’re right. I was rash. I’ll leave the city with you… It’s just that I hate myself for not being able to use my skills for the time being. I am unable to help Brother Chen and can only watch him take the risk for me.”
As he spoke, Guo Haishen could not help but feel a strong sense of guilt and gratitude towards Zhou Jing.
He gritted his teeth and said solemnly,
“Brother Chen Feng’s actions are indeed a top-notch hero in the forest. When I meet him again, I will definitely go through the rites of brotherhood with him!”
Seeing this, Xiang Tianjie did not know what to say.
Their Heavenly King Stronghold had come to save Guo Haishen because they admired him and wanted to save a friend from the bottom of their hearts. However, they also wanted to use the kindness of breaking into the prison to invite him up the mountain. The two did not conflict.
But now, Xiang Tianjie realized that they were inferior to Zhou Jing.
Although their Heavenly King Stronghold was the leader of this operation, and Zhou Jing had only joined midway, who asked him to take the initiative to give the most dangerous suggestion and personally take on this mission?
Not only was Guo Hai extremely touched, but even Xiang Tianjie admired such loyalty. He also wished to invite Zhou Jing to join him.
Xiang Tianjie thought for a moment, then turned his head and instructed Shi Qing, “Brother Shi, stay in the city for the time being. Go to the south of the city to find Brother Chen Feng and the others. Tell them that we’ve succeeded and that they can retreat. Then, you and Lu Xinniang can help them out of the city.”
“Understood. I won’t disappoint you.”
Shi Qing hurriedly agreed and left.
After discussing serious matters, the group did not say anything else. They quickly changed their clothes and rushed to the city gate.
South of the city, in the front yard of the He Residence.
The sounds of fighting had stopped.
A burly man covered in blood stood proudly in the field with a blood-stained spear in his hand. The corpses under his feet were strewn everywhere, and blood flowed like a river.
The guards surrounding him had clearly thinned out, and their faces were filled with fear. They did not dare to approach the burly man in the middle anymore and only dared to surround him from afar.
Some people trembled and hid behind their own people, while others fell to the ground as if they were scared silly. They frantically moved their buttocks and retreated, still shouting, “Don’t come over!”
Outside the door, there was already a sea of people. They were all the commoners who had rushed over to watch. They were all extremely shocked, their eyes filled with disbelief as they stared at Zhou Jing as if he was a ghost.
“This world… actually can produce someone with such martial prowess?”
