MARTIAL PEAK 4822


Treasure Field Peak’s bandits had attacked the Meng Family’s mansion at night, and the Second Leader Lu Anguo had even personally taken action to capture the Meng Family’s Eldest Young Lady. A new guard from the Meng Mansion had chased after her all the way to the wilderness outside the city and fought alone, killing countless enemies before finally successfully rescuing the Eldest Young Lady.


When the news spread, the entire White Jade City was shaken.


It was rumored that the new guard of the Meng Mansion had unfathomable strength, and even when facing hundreds of horse riding bandits, he didn’t retreat. With a blade in one hand and a sword in the other, he cut off the heads of the horse riding bandits as if he was cutting vegetables.


Rumor had it that he was three meters tall, had three heads and six arms, and had a burly physique. The hearts of the horse riding bandits he had killed were all eaten by him.


Relying on his courage and ferocity, he finally managed to hold out until the Young City Lord of White Jade City arrived with his men and defeated the bandits from Treasure Field Peak.


Everyone who heard this news was shocked by the strength of this Meng Mansion Guard, but at the same time they admired his loyalty.


Treasure Field Peak was the lair of a bandit, so anyone could guess what would happen to the Eldest Young Lady of the Meng Mansion if she was really abducted.


However, it was thanks to the loyalty of this Guard that the Eldest Young Lady was able to preserve her innocence. Everyone also learned that this Guard was actually one of the people selected from the ring by the Meng Mansion a while ago. Many families were secretly envious, thinking that the Meng Mansion had picked up a treasure.


In today’s world, such loyal guards were hard to find.


Inside the Meng Mansion, Yang Kai was still unconscious. In the battle with the Treasure Field Peak's bandits, he had almost exhausted all his strength and was only able to persevere with his willpower.


If the guards of the City Lord’s Mansion had arrived half an hour later, he might not have been able to persist.


At that time, after Yin Zhiyong and the others had finished applying medicine to him, Young City Lord Feng Cheng Si had escorted Eldest Young Lady back to the Meng Mansion, and Yang Kai, who had made great contributions in this incident, had received special attention.


Before he even woke up, the Master of Meng Mansion had already given him a large amount of silver, as well as a private mansion, as well as top-quality medicine. Every day, a maidservant would treat his wounds.


An outer court guard receiving such a reward was something that had never happened before.


The Meng Mansion’s housekeeper also came to visit Yang Kai personally and told Yin Zhiyong to report immediately if Yang Kai woke up.


Yin Zhiyong naturally agreed.


Many of the guards had come to visit Yang Kai. Although Yang Kai had not been in the Meng Mansion for long and was not familiar with them, this time Yang Kai had risked his life to save the face of these guards. After all, their Eldest Young Lady had been abducted right in front of their eyes. If Yang Kai hadn’t decided to chase after her, all of them would have been punished by the Meng Mansion and many of them would have died.


Every person who came to visit Yang Kai saw his injuries and remained silent.


It was too serious, and there was not a single part of his body that was intact. His entire body was wrapped up like a dumpling and the gauze was covered in blood.


In fact, no one knew how someone could survive such a serious injury.


Yin Zhiyong had also brought back the saber and the long sword that had been cut open. These two weapons had drunk the blood of the bandits and were the best proof of Yang Kai’s bravery!


Every day, the Eldest Young Lady would send a personal maidservant named Qian Qian to visit Yang Kai before returning to report his situation to her.


If possible, the Eldest Young Lady would be willing to visit him, but she was a woman after all, and she was also the Eldest Young Lady of the Meng Mansion. If she really lowered herself to visit Yang Kai, it wouldn’t be appropriate.


For example, this time, Yang Kai had made a great contribution and the Patriarch of the Meng Mansion had never personally come to see him, only sending his most trusted housekeeper.


With a different status and identity, it was the responsibility of the guard to fight to the death.


After seven days, Yang Kai woke up.


When he opened his eyes, he had never felt so uncomfortable before. His entire body was in pain and his throat was burning. He had never suffered such serious injuries before.


Although they were only in the Samsara World, everything felt so real.


His eyes flickered as he caught sight of Yin Zhiyong sitting at a nearby table, holding the hand of a maidservant, seemingly showing her palms.


The maidservant lowered her head, her face red. She wanted to withdraw her hand, but she didn’t have the strength to do so, nor did she dare to shout loudly, her tears almost flowing out.


Yin Zhiyong pretended he didn’t see this and just kept talking about how his life had been full of ups and downs, but in the end he had met a great benefactor.


Yang Kai couldn’t stand it any longer and raised his hand to knock on the bed.


Hearing this sound, the maidservant was startled and quickly pulled her hand back, but Yin Zhiyong turned his head towards Yang Kai and was overjoyed, “Brother Yang, you’re finally awake?”


Quickly walking over to Yang Kai, he asked with concern, “How is it? Are you feeling unwell?”


“Water!” Yang Kai felt like his mouth was about to spit fire.


“Oh… Water, water, water!” Yin Zhiyong quickly called out to the maidservant, who took out a water bottle and sat on the edge of the bed, helping Yang Kai drink it slowly.


After drinking a pot of water, Yang Kai finally felt better.


Yin Zhiyong smiled happily, “Brother Yang, you’ve worried me to death. I was really afraid you wouldn’t wake up after sleeping like this.”


Yang Kai didn’t see any worry on his face.


Yin Zhiyong said, “It’s fine now that you’ve woken up. Rest well and recuperate. Brother, you’ve survived this disaster, so you’ll definitely have good fortune in the future.”


“Eldest Young Lady… how is she?” Yang Kai asked.


In fact, at the last moment when he was protecting the Eldest Young Lady, his consciousness had become somewhat unclear. He only vaguely remembered that reinforcements had arrived and the people from Treasure Field Peak had no choice but to retreat. Logically speaking, the Eldest Young Lady should be safe.


Yin Zhiyong replied, “Eldest Young Lady is fine, just a little frightened. She has been sending people to visit you every day. Now that you’ve woken up, Eldest Young Lady can rest assured.”


Saying so, he called out to the maidservant beside him, “It’s time to change Brother Yang’s medicine.”


The maidservant nodded, put down the kettle, and busied herself with her work.


Yin Zhiyong continued to chat with Yang Kai for a while, talking about what he had seen that day, his heart filled with admiration for Yang Kai.


If he were in his shoes, he would have already surrendered and begged for mercy. It wasn’t that he wasn’t loyal to the Meng Mansion, it was just that he was about to die, so how could he possibly think of loyalty?


Between life and death, one’s temperament was the most important test.


While the maidservant were busy changing the dressing, Yin Zhiyong ran out to inform the Steward of the Meng Mansion.


After a while, the old man with the goatee who had appeared on the stage walked into the house and said a few words to Yang Kai. The Patriarch was very satisfied with Yang Kai’s performance this time, so he gave him many good things, including his current residence and a large sum of money.


Moreover, the new guards originally had at least several years of trial, but because Yang Kai had risked his life to protect the Eldest Young Lady, this trial had ended early. Yang Kai could now be considered a true guard of the Meng Mansion.


The Steward didn’t stay for long, only saying a few words before hurriedly leaving, asking Yang Kai to rest and recuperate in peace. The Meng Mansion would not mistreat these meritorious service.


This time, Yin Zhiyong also benefited.


In fact, although he had not exerted much strength in his fight with the bandits, without him, Yang Kai might not have been able to save the Eldest Young Lady.


At that time, Yang Kai had been able to chased after Lu Anguo alone because Yin Zhiyong had sent him a horse and he had run back to White Jade City without hesitation, drawing the attention of White Jade City’s guards and forcing back the bandits of Treasure Field Peak.


To be able to save the Meng Mansion’s Eldest Young Lady this time, if Yang Kai’s contribution was the first, then Yin Zhiyong’s would be the second, so he had also received many rewards. Just the gold and silver alone was enough for him to eat and drink happily for three years.


Speaking of which, he didn’t know why he had suddenly decided to follow Yang Kai in the heat of the moment. Yang Kai had left his post without permission, but it was precisely because of this impulsive decision that he had been able to accomplish such a feat.


From his perspective, Yang Kai was simply his lucky star. He had only been in the Meng Mansion for half a month, yet he had brought him the attention and honor he had not received for more than a decade.


Over the past few days, the guard leader and some of the small butlers had become much friendlier to him, making him feel even more smug.


Therefore, he was willing to take care of Yang Kai every day.


Yang Kai’s injuries healed extremely quickly, so fast that Yin Zhiyong couldn’t help sighing at his inhuman recovery speed.


After being in a coma for seven days, he woke up, and after three days he could get out of bed and walk, his injuries began to improve.


In the past twenty days, he had basically recovered.


Yin Zhiyong’s jaw dropped as he tried to persuade Yang Kai to lie down for a few more days.


Because he was tasked with taking care of Yang Kai, as long as Yang Kai was lying down, he could rest here for a few more days to avoid the sun and wind.


Fortunately, the housekeeper didn’t immediately assign them any tasks, so Yang Kai and Yin Zhiyong seemed to have nothing to do.


Yin Zhiyong would circle around the maidservant every day, but Yang Kai couldn’t sit still, sweating profusely in the courtyard as he cultivated.


The Martial Dao standard of this Samsara World was very low, but it could also slowly become stronger. In the future, he would definitely need to use his internal force, so the stronger he was, the better.


Yin Zhiyong had tried to exchange a few blows with him, but in the end, he was not willing to do so anymore. It was simply too much of a blow to him. The difference in skill between the two of them was too great, and in just a single exchange, he had been defeated by Yang Kai.


On top of cultivating, Yang Kai was also thinking about how to approach the Eldest Young Lady.


Qu Huachang’s identity as the Eldest Young Lady of the Meng Family, Meng Ru, had already been confirmed. Before her reincarnation, she had set up a heart barrier that he had to break to awaken her sealed memories.


The only way to break this heart barrier was to win her heart.


Yang Kai naturally didn’t care about the difference in status between the Eldest Young Lady and the Guard. The problem was that he didn’t know how to win her heart.


Although he had many wives, he had never deliberately done such a thing. In the field of love, there was not much he could do.


Right now, the most important thing was to get close to the Eldest Young Lady. As the saying goes, the pavilion closest to the water enjoys moonlight first. If he couldn’t even get close, how could he break her heart barrier?


Fortunately, with the help of his previous performance, the Eldest Young Lady should have a deep impression of him. Sending personal maid to visit him every day was the best proof.


Just as Yang Kai was deep in thought, an opportunity suddenly presented itself.
