Seeing Zhang Chuan and the other men looking like they wanted to do something to Sun Tu alone who is just a young man, the drinkers who had left the shop exclaimed in worry but no one dared to stop them.
Only Yu Xiaohe, who was frightened by Zhang Chuan and the others earlier, hesitated for a moment before taking a step forward. With a smile, he said, “Sires, please calm down. Sun is young and energetic. That’s why he is more brash. I hope you will be magnanimous and not be offended by him…”
“Get out of here!” A thug suddenly stepped forward and knocked Xiaohe over and with a painful cry, he tumbled to the ground. Old man-Hu who had fallen in disgrace just now, took Yu Xiaohe’s knife to recover some face.
This act caught the eyes of the only two drinkers left in the Inn. One of them seemed to be unable to stand it anymore, and wanted to get up and do something, but was stopped by the older man with his eyes. Now, this older man glanced at Sun Tu with interest. How would this young man cope with the situation in front of him?
Sun Tu didn’t show any fear when facing this brawny man. He knew his physique very well. Even though he was a young man, he had strength that was above average and knew some martial arts. Dealing with these people was not going to be a problem. Originally, he wanted to let this pass quietly, but after seeing Yu Xiaohe being pushed over by Old Man Hu, he was annoyed and a glimmer of light flashed in his eyes.
But at this moment, Old Man Hu rushed towards Sun Tu eagerly and made a face. He even held the sharp knife in his hand and attempted to stab Sun Tu. His movement seemed quick, but in Sun Tu’s opinion, it was very slow. He only needed to slightly lean his body to the side and he nimbly dodged the tip of the knife. He then lifted his left knee, violently hitting the lower abdomen of Old Man Hu, who couldn’t take the momentum of the blow.
With a muffled bang, Old Man Hu suddenly let out a sharp scream, arched his body like a shrimp, and collapsed to the ground. With a twitch, tears and mucus spilled from his eyes and, embarrassed.
Sun Tu’s brutal move immediately baffled Zhang Chuan and the others. They wanted to just suddenly pounce upon him, and then they realized that the young man in front of them was indeed a tricky person, and not a pushover. At the same time they hesitated, Sun Tu had already taken the initiative to rush over, slamming his fists into the face of two of the men, frightening them into parrying and evading.
However, it was a feint. As they focused on his upper body, he quickly kicked their lower body, hitting the knees of the two of them, causing them to fall to the ground in pain. He himself had already taken a step closer, hammering Zhang Chuan’s chest with a fist.
Zhang Chuan hurriedly moved his arms to block the blow, but as soon as the two bodies collided, he felt a strong force and he couldn’t stop it. He staggered and retreated with a grunt. When he managed to stand his ground, he saw that the last two companions of his had also been knocked to the ground by Sun Tu. These people hadn’t even had time to draw their weapons, they had been knocked down by a violent storm of blows from the young man.
The people outside the store looked stunned, almost thinking that they were seeing hallucinations. You should know that Zhang Chuan and the group are considered tyrants in Yuncheng County that few people dare to provoke, and those few people who are closely related to the government are the only ones who can make them feel afraid, especially that Master Zhang.
Originally, when they saw these people bullying the Sun’s hotel, everyone had begun to worry about Yu Xiaohe and Sun Saburo and even silently mourned them. They felt that they would suffer a big loss, maybe the inn would be robbed and plundered. Unexpectedly, in just a few moments, everything underwent a 180-degree change. Sun Tu, who was supposed to be at an absolute disadvantage, beat Zhang Chuan and his party to kingdom come. This turn of events made some spectators outside the store barely able to control themselves and they cheered. “Master Sun, good one!”
As the cheers are heard in the store, for Zhang Chuan, it was like a slap in the face, making him extremely embarrassed. If he teach the boy in front of him a lesson today, he was afraid that he won’t have a foothold in Yuncheng County in the future. This made him grit his teeth as he drew a short knife that shone with a cold, deadly light as he cried out “take the boy’s life. Go!”
Then, Zhang Chuan leapt forward.
Seeing him push his way forward like a maddened tiger, as if he wanted to eat people, the people outside exclaimed again, and Ya’er, who was on the side was even more frightened, but still screamed: “Third brother, quick, flee…” She wanted to step forward to help Sun Tu block the knife, but she was so frightened that she was rooted to the ground and unable to move, she could only stand there in tears.
On the contrary, Sun Tu was calm as usual. Seeing Zhang Chuan, who was about to devour him, Sun Tu only bent his waist slightly, his eyes fixed on the opponent’s. Once the opponent decides where to attack, he will be able to see it, and then take advantage of the situation to counterattack.
At this critical juncture, a figure suddenly appeared in front of the hotel, and shouted at Zhang Chuan who was about to kill him. “Zhang Wu, do you want to commit a crime in the street under Langlang Qiankun?”
Although the voice was not very harsh, but the voice fell into Zhang Chuan’s ears and his expression suddenly changed, and his body that was already full of momentum quickly held back. At this time, everyone outside also came back to their senses, seeing the appearance of the incoming person clearly, many people shouted. “Constable Song is here…this is a good time for him to arrive…” Everyone obviously felt relieved.
Sun Tu also looked at the man who suddenly rushed to stop the fight and saw that he was in his thirties, with dark skin and a short stature. But even though he was a little shorter than Sun Tu, a 16-year-old boy, his aura was very impressive. After entering the store, he immediately suppressed Zhang Chuan.
Zhang Chuan was unwilling: “Constable Song, this kid…”
Constable Song glanced at the situation in the store, and a look of surprise flashed in his eyes. He saw that the people who fell on the ground repeatedly were all Zhang Chuan’s companions, and the one standing opposite them was actually only a sixteen-year-old boy, which is beyond his expectations.
However, he quickly turned his gaze back to Zhang Chuan. “I warned you not to cause trouble again, but why did my words fall on deaf ears? The people who took you quickly leave here, and dare to come here to make trouble again. Even if someone protects you, I have a way to convict you!”
Zhang Chuan, who was about to say a few words, was so frightened by him that he didn’t dare to explain any more. He could only stare at Sun Tu bitterly, and then shouted at his companions. “Useless things, all of you, go back with me…” As he shouted, he turned around and went away. Obviously, this Constable Song was a person who made him very fearful, and only a few words could make him lead people away meekly.
Old Man Hu naturally more afraid of Constable Song, so even if he had injuries on his body, he still got up with some difficulty and stumbled outside with his boss, not daring to show the slightest dissatisfaction. The others hurriedly lifted the jar that was still on the table full of money, and left. In this aspect, Sun Tu didn’t step forward. After all, it is natural to pay off debts, and after so many people have watched him pay back the money, no one can forgive them if they do not admit that it was paid back in the future.
After they left, Yu Xiaohe walked up gratefully, “thank you, Constable Song for coming to the rescue of the shop, otherwise…”
Constable Song’s expression relaxed as he smiled and said, “Mister Yu doesn’t have to be so grateful. Since I am the county’s constable, I have rules to enforce for peace in the county. They didn’t hurt you, did they?” The question fell on Sun Tu, full of playfulness and interest.
Sun Tu appraised the constable. This man was indeed not weak, but it was not enough to make him panic. After the two looked at each other for a while, Constable Song smiled and said, “Sun Family’s third child is indeed a young hero, and he can defeat Zhang Chuan and the others while outnumbered. Okay! I, Song Jiang, have seen many good men It is heroic as there are not many people who can have this ability at your age.”
When these words came out, the people in and outside the store looked at Sun Tu with a little envy, because with Constable Song’s evaluation, Sun Tu’s name must be known to many people soon, and Zhang Chuan will be afraid to come here to make trouble again.
But, among those who are the most surprised, Sun Tu was one of them. He, who had always been calm, was really shocked this time, even his mouth was wide open. He only looked at Song Jiang in front of him and asked dryly.
“What did you say your name is? You are… Song Jiang?”
