Xiao Yang was thrown into the middle of a pile of broken chairs and the pain made his entire body unable to rise, but his mouth was anything but weak.
“You guys… you lied to me!” He angrily denounced the men in front of him.
“Aren’t you being a bit ridiculous by saying this Young Master Xiao? Even if I, Da Gui-ge, is part of the underworld, you can’t just go around framing me like that.”
A dark face, fat and tall man pulled out a stick of cigarette and lit it.
Xiao Yang curled up and groaned painfully, “Didn’t I help you guys? I fucking helped you!”
“Actually, now that you mention it, this is all thanks to you.” Da Gui laughed mischievously.
Just as he was about to say something else, a young man with red-dyed hair suddenly laughed. “Da Gui-ge, you didn’t see it at that time, but this Young Master Xiao is definitely not an ordinary person.” He restrained his laughter, “The moment he heard we want to cut his hand off, his legs became weak like noodles and he nearly pissed his pants.”
The group of men surrounding Xiao Yang burst into a peal of laughter.
Another young man, “He cried so fucking loud, you’d think his parents were being killed. Shouting, ‘spare me please, spare me.’ Let me tell you, he sniveled until his face was covered in snots!” The men laughed again.
The red-hair boy felt as if he had been robbed of the limelight so he quickly added, “And when Dong-Ye came and said, ‘If Han Jia is not captured, I can still make Xiao Li miserable? Cut it off!!’ This kid immediately kneeled down.” He squeezed his own throat and used a pleading tone, “‘Spare my life, I’ll help you capture Han Jia!’”
Everyone roared with laughter. Da Gui joined them and said with mockery, “Who would have guessed, his method was actually useful. Humph, your brother didn’t even do anything when he saw that hand, yet Han Jia actually came to throw his life away for you. Young master Xiao, who’s actually your blood brother?”
As he watched those five men made fun of him and spilled out his weakness, Xiao Yang’s insides were filled with flames, but he didn’t have the nerve to refute. He merely said with anger, “It doesn’t matter! Didn’t you say that Han Jia has been captured already? Didn’t you say when he showed his face, you’ll let me go?”
“We’ve indeed let you go.” Da Gui proudly smiled, “After Han Jia showed up, we’ve immediately let you go, didn’t we? But come on, we’ve never said we wouldn’t recapture you again.”
Under the roaring laughter, Xiao Yang was riddled with anxiousness and began to cough. “You guys, what the fuck do you guys want with me?”
Da Gui faced the red-hair boy and gave him a signal which made him stepped forward and touched Xiao Yang’s pocket.
With his body being touched, Xiao Yang eyes widened, and a burst of fear settled into his stomach, “You… what are you doing?”
The red-hair boy had already pulled Xiao Yang’s cellphone from his pocket, but when he saw him shivered in fear, he kicked him and cursed. “Fucker! I don’t even fancy someone as good looking as Han Jia, why the fuck would I fancy you?”
The surrounding men snickered, causing the red-hair boy’s face to turn bright red; he kicked Xiao Yang a few more times.
“Let me tell you asshole, it was smart of Da Gui-ge to capture you and beat you half to death before ‘letting you go’. With how remote this place is, you would definitely look for Xiao Li to come to save you, and let’s be real, if Xiao Li heard that you’re out of danger, you think he wouldn’t come here himself…”
Xiao Yang suddenly became excited. He was in so much pain, he couldn’t say anything else anymore and could only struggle incessantly.
His struggles made the red-hair boy kick him again. “What are you being so anxious about? Even if Xiao Li doesn’t personally come, we’ve shadowed you. As soon as you finished calling him, we’ve to recapture and bring you back here again. It’s not like we have anything to lose.” He twisted his head to look at Da Gui and fawningly say, “Da Gui-ge, what do you think about what I say?”
“You’ve said it well!” Da Gui with smiled, “We’ve seen him make a phone call, right?”
“Of course,” another man from the side, “Our Young Master Xiao only walked halfway up a mountain, then fell and rolled back down. He had even lie on his stomach and made a call. His voice was filled with such grievance as he spoke, saying, ‘quick come and get me, if you come late, I’ll be dead.’ Da Zhou and I waited until he finished with the call before we lifted him up and carried him back here. There are still three of us waiting over there.”
That answer indeed satisfied Da Gui who was about to say something else but stopped when he saw the red-hair boy swiping through Xiao Yang’s call history then charged toward Xiao Yang to give him a few more kicks.
“Motherfucker, you think you’re amazing just because you’ve been abroad. I even fucking thought it was in pinyin.28 But it’s actually all fucking foreign words. You don’t love your country?! I’ll fucking kick you to death. You traitor, I’ll fucking kick you to death!!”
Just as the group of men rose in an uproar, some people appeared at the door.
“Da Gui-ge,” they shouted. “We’ve captured someone, but the person said they don’t know who Xiao Li is.”
Xiao Yang struggled to lift his head up, hissing and shouting, “Susu, Susu…”
Everyone turned their heads and saw a handsome and elegant young man with his hands tied behind his back. Although he was being shoved into the room, he still wore a calm expression.
When the person saw Xiao Yang lying on the ground, he looked around at the other people and sighed. “Excuse me, did you tied me up and brought me here because you need a math tutor?”
