Dàge didn’t seem to really care as he asked, “Can I tell other people?”

“Yeah, you can.” I also thought it was the right thing to do. Telling everybody at once was better than saying it here and repeatedly saying it later. “I’ll go and gather everyone.”

Having a small amount of people had its advantages. I didn’t have to search for long to gather them all. It was just a pity that the third floor’s conference room wasn’t completed yet. We could only gather in the dining room on the first floor, making it feel like it was meal time. At times, people even reached their hands out to take peanuts and melon seeds from the table to chew on. Where’s the serious atmosphere? Getting the conference room built is definitely top priority!

“Why hold a meeting today?” Everybody asked curiously, as they simultaneously cracked the melon seeds between their teeth. Seeing this, I truly wanted to just take all the melon seeds along with the tray and just stuff their mouths with it.

Dàgē waved his hand toward me and everyone looked at me as if it were only natural. A group of highly experienced mercenaries automatically staring at an eighteen-year-old youth, just waiting for him to open his mouth… it was a very incongruous scene.

Their expressions pleased me. Although losing my memory led me to making a lot of wrong choices, it was fortunate that I was still able to make things right. They looked like they still had faith in me.

“I remembered who the three elites of mankind were.” Although it was Jin Xiaoyue who reminded me, just thinking about how to explain how Jin Xiaoyue would know gave me a huge headache, so I’d better just skip over that.

Chapter 2: Practitioner, Part 1—The First Mission—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

“Gēge, good morning!”

“Yaya-gēge, morning!”

Jiang Ziya lazily walked to the living room and got attacked by two girls’ morning greetings.

“Morning, Jiang Jiang, Xiao Xue.”

Jiang Yu blinked and glanced in puzzlement at the clock on the wall. It was currently only seven. She hadn’t thought she would see her brother up so early. She asked in curiosity, “Why are you up so early? Don’t you have afternoon classes today? Even your brother-in-law is still sleeping.”

“I’m heading out with Lu Yang.” Jiang Ziya yawned widely. Yesterday, just as he was about to sleep, he received a call from Lu Yang to check up on him. He had hesitantly told him that he had a morning mission and asked if Jiang Ziya wanted to go.

Of course, Jiang Ziya immediately answered in the affirmative. In fact, he was afraid he’d get ditched!

Jiang Yu nodded and didn’t ask anything more. After all, the boys were probably going to play some kind of sport.

“I’ll get some breakfast together for you.”

“Help prepare breakfast for Lu Yang too and put it in a paper bag. I’ll bring it and eat with him.”

“Okay, help me look after the girls for a bit.” Jiang Yu was immediately so excited that she almost rubbed her hands together. Two grown boys could eat quite a lot for breakfast. As a professional housewife, she was going to show off her skill!

No Hero Side Story: Good Child, Bad Child

Ri Xiang Ye felt that this issue was a little hard to resolve. He shouldn’t interfere with internal conflicts in the mafia. However, if they continued to clash like this, who knew how much longer this mayhem would last. It had been a long time since Cornell’s death, yet they still had not decided on the person to be their boss. Perhaps the reason for their slow progress was the heroes keeping check on them, and as a result they could not make any large commotions.

“I’ll give you a week. I will notify the heroes not to bother you for this week. You’re not allowed to involve the civilians. After one week, if you are still being a disturbance, I will kill off all your candidates but one. You won’t need to choose!”

Ri Xiang Ye realized that after having killed before, threatening them with death was highly effective. Even though this was probably the wrong move, he couldn’t find a more effective method to stop these criminals… But did doing so mean that he was no different from a criminal?

Though he felt hesitant and doubtful about himself, he had to do this to bring this messy situation to a timely end.

Both sides privately discussed among themselves. It was evident from their whispering that they felt extremely dissatisfied. However, in the end, they still did not dare to reject it in front of Dark Sun and could only argue weakly.

“One week is too short…”

“Then two weeks!”

“Let’s start sparring straightaway. But you have to control your strength. Don’t tear your Lin-yéye apart,” Lin-yéye said after some consideration, as he gazed at Ri Xiang Ye’s arms and legs with a knowing look.

Ri Xiang Ye hurriedly assured him, “I definitely won’t!”

After saying that, as if he was afraid that Lin-yéye would back out, he quickly moved his arms into position, adopting a perfect tai chi stance. However, compared to Lin-yéye’s pose, it was slightly lacking in ease and composure.

Previously, even though the slow-tempo combat was full of techniques that used the opponent’s strength against them, because of the slowness of it, it could not be applied to real combat and was more like a form of training instead.

Sparring was slow sometimes, quick at other times. Pushing, pulling and parrying were used to defend, and also had the additional benefit of completely disrupting your opponent’s fighting rhythm. Thus, pushing, pulling and parrying were also offensive moves that emphasized turning your opponent’s advantage to your own, and converting your opponent’s strength into your own strength. The more powerful the enemy, the stronger you became!
