“I have to be honest, it’s hard being a good person. Just look at me, I never wanted to be a good person. These people should just die, get raped, or get tortured, or get trampled to the ground like slaves! They deserve it, whatever happens to them is none of my business!” declared Zhao Manyan.
Jiang Shaoxu learned something new. She never knew a place or a country could be this petty.
She wanted to help, but they were beyond rescue.
Mo Fan had seen people that were much worse. After all, when there were millions of victims in a situation like the Calamity of Ancient Capital, it was possible to find all kinds of people.
As such, Mo Fan was not really surprised by the villagers’ reactions.
That being said, Mo Fan strongly believed in one thing: it was unwise to think that a criminal would suddenly become merciful and stop harming people. Scum like them that were corrupted and stunk to the bones would only become even worse. Their only goal was to obtain a greater pleasure from conquering weaklings, thus the situation would only worsen if the villagers kept compromising!
Mo Fan was no saint, and he had no obligation to teach the villagers the reality. They could only understand the truth after experiencing it themselves, and realizing how idiotic their decision was. They would regret it all when they paid a greater price in the future.
To Mo Fan, it was none of his business. Besides, he was mainly displeased by how scornful these members of the Red Ornaments Guild were. If he did not trample them to death, he would be sulking the whole day!
Who cared if the villagers were grateful or disgusted, it was their own business. Mo Fan never expected his soul to transcend after receiving their gratitude. After all, if they actually showed some respect to him, he would not mind uprooting the entire Red Ornaments Guild. He could easily do it. If the villager rose to their feet and told him firmly that they wanted the Red Ornaments Guild to be punished according to their crimes, Mo Fan would not mind going straight to their nest and killing their boss.
But if they wanted to kneel, just let them kneel and acknowledge the people of the Red Ornaments Guild as their daddies. Let them enjoy it, they were adults, they should be responsible for the words they said and the decisions they made!
“Aren’t you angry?” Jiang Shaoxu looked at Mo Fan with a confused face.
“Why should I be angry? I have saved a lot more people before, I don’t really care about them,” Mo Fan said.
“…” Jiang Shaoxu was rather amused by Mo Fan’s words.
What did he mean by he had saved a lot of people, so he didn’t really care?
Fine, based on how merciless Mo Fan was when he killed Lu Yilin, she could easily tell he was far from a good person, or a saint.
“Err…can you… can you please let us go? How dare those assholes not show any respect to Advanced Magicians like you? Let us go, and we’ll punish them, and teach them how to be grateful!” the face of the Magician with a nose ring was covered in blood, but he still tried to force a smile.
“That’s none of your concern. I am no saint, but my eyes find a scum that murders without blinking like you very annoying,” Mo Fan said with a smile and narrowed eyes.
The Magician immediately wet his pants. He knew Mo Fan was not a kind man when he first met him, daring to rob their Red Ornaments Guild. As he thought, the guy was nothing but a maniac!
The Magician with a nose ring begged for his life. Even some of the villagers were begging him not to kill the people of the Red Ornaments Guild.
Mo Fan ignored their pleas and tossed the Magician into a rhomboid that immediately compressed into a shape that perfectly fit him, and crushed him to pieces!
This time, Mo Fan did not let a single one escape. He took turns killing the bandits without even blinking. The Magicians of the Red Ornaments Guild soon lay still on the ground, just like the villagers that they had killed.
Zhao Manyan felt like their corpses were an eyesore. He quickly summoned a scorching golden light and turned their corpses into ashes, allowing their souls to move on.
“Wait… please wait!”
The three were about to leave when the tanned young girl came chasing after them. Her English was not fluent, and her eyes had a determined look, yet her expression and her body seemed somewhat lost.
“We’re leaving, since you asked us not to meddle in your business. What do you want now?” Jiang Shaoxu was not a little girl anymore. She had already recovered from her anger.
“I…I have come to thank you, for killing those bad guys…my name is Jenny, I…I want…I want…” The little girl’s eyes glistened with tears. It was likely that her family members were among the villagers that had been killed.
“What do you want, say it,” Mo Fan coaxed her.
“I…” Young girl Jenny was having trouble talking. Tears kept bursting out from her eyes.
Mo Fan went up and crouched slightly to reach her eye level. He asked with a smile, “Do you want us to take out the Red Ornaments Guild for you?”
The girl’s eyes immediately widened, as if she could not understand why Mo Fan knew what she wanted to say.
“Jenny, that’s too much of a favor to ask, they have already helped us twice. It’s a blessing that God has given us, but the Red Ornaments Guild is too dangerous, and even the government is afraid of them. How can you ask them to put their lives at risk?” the chief staggered forwards. He was in a pretty bad shape.
“Indeed, there’s no way we can do it for you, considering what your people have said to us,” said Zhao Manyan.
“The God of Ocean wants us to suffer, thus we have no choice but to accept it. I apologize on behalf of the people that have lost their minds in fear. No matter what the fate of our village is, we are grateful that you’ve saved our lives.” The chief was a rational man. He spoke sincerely to Mo Fan, Zhao Manyan, and Jiang Shaoxu.
The young girl Jenny was still looking at Mo Fan with tearful eyes, as he was the strongest person that she had ever met. He was able to beat the crap out of the bandits!
“But that’s not what you are thinking?” Mo Fan asked with the same smile.
“My villagers said bad things to you, and the Red Ornaments Guild is indeed terrifying… I guess I’m asking too much from you,” Jenny said.
“You just need to answer me; did you seriously mean what you said?” Mo Fan repeated.
Jenny looked into Mo Fan’s dark-brown eyes. It felt like she could see the determination and confidence in the big brother’s heart, the same look she saw from her father when he was lying in a pool of blood!
“Ye…yes!” Tears burst out from Jenny’s eyes again, as if all the sorrow and anger in her heart had burst out like the water pouring out from a broken dam.
The others in the village were willing to compromise in order to stay alive, willing to be slaves to the bandits, but she had witnessed her father dying right in front of her. She could not imagine obeying her father’s murderers, and living under their control. She just could not do it. If hatred alone was enough to murder someone, she would have killed the people of the Red Ornaments Guild a thousand times! What right did they have to kill innocent people just to satisfy their greed? They had already taken her everything. Her beloved father was the only thing she had left!
“Mo Fan, don’t be ridiculous, taking down the entire Red Ornaments Guild isn’t an easy task. Are you sure about giving your promise? Didn’t we say not to care about these dumb villagers anymore?” Zhao Manyan blurted out. He was worried that Mo Fan would give his promise without considering the consequences.
It was a good thing to serve justice, but it still depended on the situation. The Red Ornaments Guild was not just a small organization that could be uprooted easily. The advisors only asked them to take down the Red Ornaments Guild, not uproot them. In simpler words, the Red Ornaments Guild had crossed the line lately, so the national teams were asked to kill or arrest as many of their members as they could. However, uprooting the Red Ornaments Guild was definitely out of their scope. It was something that the Sacred Hall of Liberty had to worry about.
Didn’t Mo Fan see that the poor local government was already working with the Red Ornaments Guild? It was true that the local government is extremely unreliable, but it also implied how powerful the Red Ornaments Guild was!
Mo Fan did not give Jenny an answer. He patted her head and started heading in White Head City’s direction.
Zhao Manyan and Jiang Shaoxu quickly caught up to Mo Fan. They realized something was wrong about his expression, seeing a murderous intent in his eyes. Zhao Manyan said, “Are you sure about this?”
“Why not?” asked Mo Fan in return.
Zhao Manyan was instantly left speechless.
-He’s right, why not!?-
Any human with a conscience would want to eliminate an organization like the Red Ornaments Guild!
The organization was only around because they were scary, powerful, and vengeful.
However, Mo Fan did not put so much effort into learning magic just so he to reroute his path when he stumbled onto an organization like the Red Ornaments Guild!
If he found anyone an eyesore and decided that the person was a pest to the world, he would simply erase them from existence. It was not like he was too weak to do it. It might be troublesome, but so be it. It was not like their efforts were in vain. Not only would they be able to claim the rewards, he could also secure the Dark Noble Mantle too, while conveniently helping the young girl from the village get her revenge!
Make money, trample on people, slaughtering scum, rescuing young girls! The favor definitely suited his initial motives that drove him to become a Magicians!
He had grown a lot stronger since he started learning magic. If he had to think twice before trampling on a group of assholes, he should just go home and study instead!
Therefore, why shouldn’t he uproot the Red Ornaments Guild?
“Mo Fan, I’m getting more impressed by your courage. You really dare challenge a big malignant tumor of the Caribbean Sea, just like that!” Jiang Shaoxu smiled widely.
Even though Jiang Shaoxu was not pleased by the villagers’ reactions, it did not really matter. She was not risking her lives for those idiotic villagers, but to serve justice on behalf of the young girl Jenny, and for herself…
She simply wanted to take down the Red Ornaments Guild, nothing else!
