Title: Chapter 17 Encounter
Xin: Nn. They're getting exhausted again.
Just as I thought. In times like these, the lower-class ones are the strong ones! Because we're using our legs like we do every day.
Diao: So true.
In that case...... it sounds like you're saying that everyone high-class is weak...
Xin: Well, aren't they? They are as far as I can see...
Diao: Ah, I know.
Why are the high-class weaklings?
Diao: Because in the world of warrior class nobles, you can just buy status with money-----
The rich parents of rich young masters that can't do anything pay loads of money to buy them high status.
Xin: Yeah. Sir Bi is younger than the rest, yet he's got the rank of aide.
He certainly had some nice origins, didn't he?
In bubble: KUKUKUKU
BI: It's true that the Bi family is a distinguished family, but I did not buy my status with money!
It is because I had greater literary and martial art skills than others that I was stationed with Lord as his aide.
SFX: HAA HAA
Xin: Literary and martial art skills, eh...?
Bi: Wh-What's with that look?!
SFX: NYA NYA NYA
Xin: Well, I guess you're one of the more hard-working rich young masters, eh?
But even so..........
Xin: Why does the kingdom's number-one young master have so much stamina?
Why is it a brat with super sheltered upbringing can climb such steep mountains?
No...... It's not just stamina.
Xin: If I think about when he cut off Zhuxiong's head,
or what happened in the cave, none of that's normal.
He's totally different from Piao and I,
but this guy is clearly used to fighting to the death.
Just what exactly is with this guy?!
Ah, never mind.
Handwritten: What's with that?!!
SFX: POR PORI (Scratching)
SFX: ZU ZU ZU
Changwenjun: Even though I've become a civil officer, and I've planned to serve actively in the military for quite some time......
That may not be the case.
Chang: It's nothing.
Age is a fearsome thing.
Changwenjun: But this is not the time to spout complaints!
There's no one in the entire State of Qin that can be that man's sword but me......
............It's not something he can do. His temperament is too straightforward.
Purely with martial arts, he cannot cut through this world of warring states.
I am truly the only one who can..........
Changwenjun: The king!
Protect the king!
Bi: Everyone, come up here!!
Form a circle around the king!
Zheng: Stay calm!
Zheng: If they felt like it, they'd have attacked us long ago.
Xin: Then they just came to meet us?
They've sure got some dangerous stuff for doing that!
Diao: They must have come to see if we're enemies or not.
One of them's coming forward!
SFX: ZAH ZAH ZAH
Bi: My king...
Zheng: Don't move!
SFX: ZAH ZAH
SFX: ZAH ZAH
Diao: WAAAAH HAHAHAHAHAHA ["WAAAH" really big]
I'm sorry! This guy's a real idiot.
Bi: He spoke.
Guy: When the Flatland People
enter on their own,
we gouge out both eyes and drop them from a waterfall.
Guy: But you all have come to meet our king.
We will decide what to do depending on your reason for doing so.
How do you know we're here to meet the Mountain King?!
Guy: Our king knows all.
Guy: Our king is awaiting the young King of Qin!
We will take you to the King's castle.
Xin: What?! Then we'll get this over with quick.
Okay, let's get going!
SFX: ZAH ZAH
SFX: BUN GOH
Xin: What the hell're you doing?!!
Guy: Do not misunderstand.
We will bring the king alone. You others must descend the mountain now.
Changwenjun: Wh-What did you say?!
Xin: And if we say no?!
Guy: We will kill
