The Cold King and His Spoilt Wife: His Genius Consort Is Breathtaking - Chapter 70
Chapter 70: Tiger Mercenary Group
Old Master Xiao had fainted, and they could only bring him to seek treatment.
They didn’t have the time to deal with anything now.
If anything happened to Old Master Xiao, they would be finished.
The Xiao family wouldn’t let them off.
The people around Xia Muqing looked at her with reverence, especially the mercenaries.
They unconsciously pressed their legs together as they felt a chill down their spine.
The members of the Tiger Mercenary Group looked at each other.
In the end, it was Hu Da who spoke.
“Lass, you’ve provoked Old Master Xiao.
You should hurry and escape.
When they realize that, they will find trouble with you.
” Xia Muqing didn’t panic and simply asked, “Is Old Master Xiao very powerful?” Hu Da sighed and said, “Lass, this should be your first time in the Sunset Mountains.
” Xia Muqing didn’t retort as she listened to him explain about the distribution of power in the Sunset Mountains.
The periphery of the Sunset Mountains had always been ruled by fists.
It had always been managed by the three aristocratic families: the Lin family, the Wang family, and the Xiao family.
Initially, they were on par with each other in terms of power.
However, the Xiao family had somehow obtained a way to control beasts, and so the entire family had ruled the Sunset Mountains.
The Lin and Wang families had been persecuted by them, and only empty shells were left.
They bullied men and women here, and bullied others.
And they were afraid of the ferocious beasts they possessed, and no one dared to interfere.
Or simply said, anyone who dared to interfere had been killed by ferocious beasts.
And so, they became even more arrogant.
Old Master Xiao was actually not the head of the Xiao family, but an idle young master.
He was addressed as Old Master because of his age.
Xia Muqing nodded in understanding.
She was a little curious about the beast-taming technique he was talking about.
Seeing that Xia Muqing still didn’t move, Hu Da asked anxiously, “Then why aren’t you fleeing?” Xia Muqing had a good impression of them.
Her gaze landed on the young man with a broken leg.
He looked to be twelve or thirteen years old.
He had red lips and white teeth and didn’t look like a mercenary at all.

COM Despite being threatened, he still dragged his injured leg and stood up without any hesitation.
He didn’t hide behind his brothers and chose to stand with them as protectors.
Seeing that he didn’t even try to put his leg in a cast, Xia Muqing said, “If you don’t treat your leg, you’ll really end up crippled.
” These words made everyone look a little sad.
Only the young man raised a bright smile and said, “My leg is hopeless.
It doesn’t matter if it’s cured or not.
” Pain flashed across Hu Da and the others’ eyes.
Hu Da sighed and patted the young man’s shoulder.
“It’s all my fault.
If you didn’t help me block that attack, you wouldn’t have…” Another burly man’s eyes welled up with tears.
The young man shook his head.
“Brother, you have always been the one protecting me.
I want to protect you too.
” “Who said that your injuries can’t be healed?” Xia Muqing asked calmly.
A hint of loneliness flashed across the young man’s eyes, but no one could see it.
He said calmly, “Brother brought me to the most famous physician to take a look.
They said that there’s no hope.
” Xia Muqing looked at him gently and said, “I can treat your leg.
” A trace of hope rose in the youth’s eyes, but it was quickly extinguished.
He felt that it was impossible.
Hu Da asked anxiously, “Lass, can you really treat him?” Xia Muqing’s eyes were filled with sincerity and confidence.
Unlike the young man, who had negative thoughts, as long as it was possible, Hu Da would try.
The young man also knew that Hu Da was doing this because of his guilt.
Each time, Hu Da would listen to him and cooperate enthusiastically.
But after being disappointed so many times, he no longer had any hopes.
Hu Da immediately invited Xia Muqing to their mercenary group.
Only one person was left to guard the entrance of the mystic realm.
During the conversation along the way, Xia Muqing learned that Hu Da and the young man were really biological brothers.
However, their looks were too different.
