Chapter 54 To come to an end of a phase
When the two shadows had appeared, it was coincided with the moment Yan Hanqing was going to take over being lookout. This meant that all three were wide awake and had seen the strange shadows appear. The three immediately became alert.
Shao Qing didn’t say a word. Making a hand gesture, Er Dai and Yan Hanqing immediately understood, one went to the left while the other went to the right to flank them.
Shao Qing quietly sneaked closer. Afterwards she was able to hear the two speaking.
It was a woman’s voice: “In any case they have all left already. Why do we still have to come in the middle of the night? I feel a bit scared, how about we change it to tomorrow…?”
Immediately a man’s voice could be heard: “Do you think we’re doing something that can be publicly seen? Coming during the day time, peh. Dig quicker and don’t waste time.”
“Who are you trying to teach? Whatever, don’t say anything. I feel that the silence of tonight is rather frightening…” The woman lowered her voice: “That troublesome b*tch, seducing the village chief and swallowing all that money. Not even a portion went into our hands. Now we’re going to tear her skin and gnaw on her bone, this is all just retribution!”
The man laughed: “Stop saying bullsh*t. Just quickly dig. I haven’t had meat in a long time and the cemetery on the other side has been all dug out. We still have to think about what we’ll do in the future.”
“That turtley turtle sh*t. When he was leaving he wouldn’t even leave behind anything for us to eat. Seeing him like this, I’m eighty percent sure he’s become that woman’s gigolo. Did you see how well he listened to those b*tches. What a loose woman, she even had a son…” As the woman’s voice rang out, Yan Hanqing couldn’t hold back anymore. With angry eyes he stared at that man and woman as if they were dead.
The two of them were frightened, raising the spade in their arms up defensively. Realizing that it was Yan Hanqing, they started to feel less confident.
“Ne…nephew. Didn’t you leave?” The woman stammered.
Yan Hanqing gave them an ice-cold glance and coldly said: “If I actually did leave, I’m afraid that even my mother’s corpse would’ve been defiled by you people with hearts of wolves and lungs of dogs*!”
* cruel and unscrupulous
Since Yan Hanqing had been born, he had scarcely used any profanity. But, this time he really couldn’t hold back. Speaking about it, him and this man before him could be considered to have half of the same blood. Yet, this man was ruthless enough to try to steal money from an orphan and a widow. That money was his father’s posthumous compensation money.
Anyone who had a conscience wouldn’t have been able to do this kind of thing!
Even worse is that they weren’t even going to let his mother’s corpse go. Hearing their filthy speech made him rage with fury.
Before he had thought that no matter what, that married couple were his closest relatives in the world, so even though they weren’t the kindest, Yan Hanqing wasn’t prepared to pick up on their debt. Merely they had stepped on Yan Hanqing’s bottom line.
They could do a thousand things, or ten thousand things, but the one thing they shouldn’t have done was lay a hand on Yan Hanqing’s mother.
“This is my mother’s burial mound. I originally didn’t want there to be blood in front of her grave to allow her to be in peace.” Yan Hanqing seemed to be speaking to himself.
Hearing all this the man started shivering. He knew that Yan Hanqing had enrolled in the military and has seen blood before. If him and his wife went against him together, that would be as simple as basically handing over a dish to him.
“Hanqing, what are you thinking? I’m still your uncle…”
“That’s right. Hanqing what kind of nonsense are you talking about? We were here to just add some more dirt onto your mother’s grave.” The woman quickly added.
“It’s getting dark.” Noiselessly, Shao Qing appeared not so far away behind Yan Hanqing, speaking indifferently. “Hanqing, you bring Er Dai back first. Let me deal with this.”
Yan Hanqing knew that Shao Qing was worried that if he made a move on his own relatives it might create a shadow within his heart, therefore she wanted him to bring Er Dai and leave thus leaving Shao Qing to deal with these two.
But, Yan Hanqing shook his head and calmly replied. “No, I’ll do it.”
“What do you want…” As the woman’s sharp voice came out, the man suddenly stabbed his spade towards Yan Hanqing’s neck, trying to gain an upper hand by striking first.
Shao Qing didn’t give them another glance, pulling Er Dai by the hand, they left. If he couldn’t even deal with two regular folks, could Yan Hanqing still be Yan Hanqing?
She wasn’t worried in the slightest.
After leaving the cemetery, Shao Qing lightly laughed. “They have chosen a good location, at least now they won’t die without a burial site.”
Around roughly two minutes after, Yan Hanqing came out. His body still had the stench of blood. Although there wasn’t much, for Shao Qing the smell was very distinct.
“Have you finished dealing with them?” As Shao Qing turned her head, she saw Yan Hanqing solemnly pull out a cigarette. Searching for a lighter for the longest time and still unable to find one, he just had it squeezed between his fingers without lighting it.
“They don’t deserve to be added into the Yan family’s ancestral tomb.” Yan Hanqing coldly stated. He didn’t mention how he had handled those two people, but Shao Qing didn’t ask. The three then started to walk back in the direction of where they parked their car.
She knew Yan Hanqing’s heart was definitely unwell. He was the honest upright kind of man like a mountain, silent and reliable. This kind of man has often placed an importance on relationships no matter if it was familial relationships or repaying someone. Although those two were trash, at the end of the day they were still his relatives; in fact, his last relatives in this world.
Shao Qing knew that at most Yan Hanqing would be gloomy for a bit longer then he would hide everything inside his heart. This man who appeared silent and stern, had already been pressured by stress and is already having difficulty breathing.
She could tell that Yan Hanqing didn’t smoke before. From his posture of smoking a cigarette, it was awkward and clumsy. On his finger there were no common marks or traces that he has been smoking for a long time. It was probably only after the apocalypse did he start smoking.
This man just had too much to shoulder, he couldn’t let himself relax.
Shao Qing had always thought that she wasn’t the type to have a glib tongue, but since she had met Yan Hanqing, she just couldn’t help straightening him out again and again.
“Your heart not feeling well?”
Yan Hanqing shook his head. His eyes showed that he seemed to be at a loss but looking at Shao Qing, he quickly recovered: “I’m not that weak.”
Shao Qing stared at Yan Hanqing for a while then laughed: “Haha, I guess I thought wrong.” He was a military man, he was indeed not that weak and fragile. Even if he felt a bit depressed, Yan Hanqing would definitely not say it out loud.
“Wait until we’re back and then you could register yourself to become an official superhuman. Afterwards you could be allocated a residence. How about you choose the one right beside mine? Since I killed that person, the house next door to mine has been empty. Be my neighbour. Later on if anything happens we can look after each other. I can even bring my darling over to your house for dinner.” Shao Qing smiled.
Yan Hanqing silently nodded his head. Everything that he owns was given to him by Shao Qing. So, everything he owns is also Shao Qings.
Just when Yan Hanqing was contemplating about something, suddenly a ice-cold hand covered his eyes. He was still able to hear Shao Qing’s pleasant voice in his ears: “Have I ever told you… that your eyes are really gorgeous?”
