Chapter 173 The Price of Looking Down on Chu Yunfan

“We found some herbs that come up to at least a few thousands today.
The trip wasn’t in vain!”

“What a pity.
We’re still unable to find the whereabouts of those little b*stards!”

“They won’t escape.
I’ve already asked someone to keep an eye out for them.
The moment they get close to the wall, someone will inform us.
Where could they possibly run off to then?”

“Yes, there’s no need to worry about them.
Anyway, this will only be going on for another few days.
Aren’t they students? They’re probably taking advantage of the winter break to train.
There are still a few more days before they return to school.
They should be coming back to the city anytime now.
What’s there to be anxious about? As long as they return, we’ll get them for sure.”

The mercenaries were discussing in low voices.
In front of them, there was a bonfire burning fiercely.
It would have to be extinguished in a while.
Once night fell, some nocturnal monsters would appear.
If they did not extinguish the fire, it might attract some of these nocturnal monsters.

Zuo Wenbin was sitting in a corner and keeping watch.
Even though it was the New Year, he had not gone back.
He was already used to living in the wild.
When he returned to the city, he would usually feel at a loss.
This was a common scene amongst mercenariesbiting winds and roaring fires.

No one noticed that in the cold wind, some powder flew away along the cold wind from a building nearby.
Soon, the mercenaries finally realized that something was wrong.
They soon realized that their bodies were starting to become limp and they did not have any strength.

Someone poisoned us!”

As an Acquired Stage expert, Zuo Wenbin was experienced.
He instantly realized that someone must have poisoned them.
Otherwise, they would not feel as they did.
Moreover, it was not a strong poison.
Otherwise, it would have been difficult to hide it from him.
Only inhaling a little poison would not have much of an effect on him.
Only by using colorless and odorless Knockout Powder would he be tricked so easily.
However, it had been a long time since he had encountered such a situation.

Those who could create colorless and tasteless Knockout Powder were the cream of the crop among poison masters.
It was not something that an ordinary person could do.

“Who are you? How dare you ambush the Tengda mercenary group? Come out!” he used all the strength in his body and shouted.

Soon, three figures appeared in front of him.
“You’re so forgetful, Captain Zuo,” Chu Yunfan said and smiled at the man.
He looked at the mercenaries who were lying on the ground.
Those mercenaries were powerless and could not even move.

In the group, Zuo Wenbin was the one with the most profound cultivation strength and was still able to look at them.
He even gave him the feeling that they were still in a very dangerous situation, as if a tiger was gathering its strength and would pounce at any time.

Chu Yunfan trusted his gut and immediately understood that Zuo Wenbin still had the strength to launch a counterattack.
However, he had not made a move because he wanted to wait for Chu Yunfan to walk over and reveal his weakness.

‘What a sly old fox.
He’s indeed experienced.
Even now, he’s still thinking of how to counterattack.’ Chu Yunfan thought to himself.
This was him.
If it were any other person, they would have been hit long ago.

“It’s you guys…” Zuo Wenbin’s eyes widened in anger.
He never thought that the people who poisoned him would actually be Chu Yunfan and his friends.

During these ten days, he had also been searching for the whereabouts of the trio, but there had been no news of them.
He did not expect the other party to plan to kill him.
They have even managed to touch him without being discovered.

“Good, good, good.
What ruthless little b*stards.
I underestimated you!” Zuo Wenbin said angrily.
He was so angry that he laughed.

“Compared to you, I’m far inferior.
I just want to live well, but you aren’t going to give me a way out.
Although I’m young, I know one thing.
I won’t give anyone a way out if they don’t give me one.
I’ll kill whoever wants to kill me.
It’s simple,” Chu Yunfan said in a low voice.

“Aren’t you afraid of offending the Tengda Group?” Zuo Wenbin said as he looked at the trio.

“What’s the use of being afraid? Besides, if I kill you, you’ll be devoured by the monsters in one night.
Who would know that it was us who did it?” Chu Yunfan said indifferently, “Isn’t that what you plan to do as well? Kill us in the wild? Who would know then that it was you who did it? However, the wild will not only cover for you but also for me.”

“Do it, kill those mercenaries first!” Chu Yunfan immediately said when he saw that the poison had taken effect, and it was obvious that they could not hold on any longer.



Gao Hongzhi and Tang Siyu raised their weapons and started to kill the mercenaries.
When they had just entered the wild, they did not have such courage.
However, they had been through a lot this winter vacation, and they had also killed a lot.
They had already completed their spiritual transformation.

“How ruthless.
You killed so many people,” Zuo Wenbin said as he looked at Chu Yunfan coldly.

“Compared to you, it’s nothing.
You were the one who taught me the rules of survival in the New World,” Chu Yunfan said faintly, “You don’t have to pretend anymore.
I know you still have some strength left.
You just want to take advantage of my carelessness.
You’ll try to take me hostage, or kill me, isn’t it?”.

“I didn’t expect you to see through me.
Does that mean that you deliberately spoke not because you wanted to speak, but because you were waiting for the poison to take effect?” Zuo Wenbin said.

“That’s right.
You’re too dangerous.
How can I be at ease if I don’t do this?” Chu Yunfan said coldly.

“What a scheming mind.
You’re so shrewd at such a young age.
I’ve really underestimated you.
However, how can you guarantee that I won’t take advantage of the time to expel the poison?” Zuo Wenbin asked again.

“I made the poison myself.
Don’t tell me I don’t even have this little bit of confidence?” Chu Yunfan continued to say.

“You made it yourself…” Zuo Wenbin’s eyes flashed with incomparable shock.
He never guessed that Chu Yunfan had such an ability.

He finally understood what had gone wrong in his originally flawless plan.
It was because he had underestimated Chu Yunfan.
That was how he had ended in such a state.
This kid had never been seen by anyone before was like a hibernating tiger.
It was almost laughable that he had treated Chu Yunfan like a fat sheep.

As soon as Zuo Wenbin finished speaking, he suddenly jumped up.
He was like a bolt of lightning, and immediately pounced toward Chu Yunfan.
A saber had appeared in his hand as he ruthlessly slashed down at Chu Yunfan.

Just as Chu Yunfan had guessed, Zuo Wenbin still had some strength left and had not completely lost his fighting ability.
