As the leader of the Street Racers Gang, Cao Toufei was stunned for quite some time after hearing Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel.’s words.
He had never dreamed that there were people who would actually doubt him, when he willingly wanted to be their brother.
Noticing that Su Qiubai once again intended to get out of the taxi, Cao Toufei knew that he couldn’t hesitate any longer.
“It’s not that, big brother. Please don’t get out of your car just yet. If you win against Jun Xiaodao, you’d be the leader of the Street Racers Gang, and then nobody would ever dare to bully Xia Xiaomu. Aren’t you his sister’s friend? You want to help her too, right?”
In the end, Cao Toufei could only grasp on to his last hope by mentioning Xia Xiaomu.
In fact, his words actually had an impact on Su Qiubai. It’s obvious that Xia Rongrong30Xia RongrongPresident/CEO of the Xia Group, one of the few wealthy and powerful company/family at Qinghe City cares deeply about her younger brother. If what Cao Toufei said was true then this offer is quite advantageous.
After considering it, Su Qiubai closed the car door and lit a cigarette, “Alright, I’ll help you to win this race. If Xia Xiaomu gets in danger next time, I’ll directly look to you.”
As he took a drag from the cigarette, he noticed that Cao Toufei was grinning at him.
“Don’t worry big brother! Only the Street Racers Gang gets to bully people, no one would ever dare to bully us here!”
Cao Toufei was beaming happily. As long as Su Qiubai agrees to help me, that brawn boy will surely end up losing.
A license plate number wasn’t really a big deal. But tarnishing the reputation of this gang from Donghai City was far more important!
Besides, it was truly an honour to have such a capable driver as the leader of the Street Racers Gang!
Originally, Cao Toufei wanted to quickly urge Su Qiubai to start the taxi. After all, the competition only had three laps left. What if Jun Xiaodao managed to catch up by the time Su Qiubai finished smoking?
However, before he could finish his sentence, he was interrupted by Su Qiubai who told him that it was still too early.
So, just as before, the crowd watched the taxi driver as he just smoked and chatted instead of focusing on the supposedly intense race. Yet, the highlighting point of this race was that… he was still in the first place!
On the other hand, the muscle boy and his gang were all pale-faced. They were distressed mainly due to the shame of losing the game, not because of the license plate number!
Their gang had proclaimed themselves to be from Donghai City. To arrive at such trivial place with a professional racer, and yet they were unable to do anything to defend themselves when they were despised at!
Perhaps only Gu Chengya29Gu ChengyaAlso written as Cheng Ya or Miss Gu. The mistress of the Gu family; Grandpa Gu's favourite granddaughter. seemed to be the calmest person there. She curiously stared into Su Qiubai’s eyes.
What kind of person is he?
He clearly was a taxi driver, with simple clothes and without any tension in his voice. He was very cool the whole time; just like an adult patiently accompanying his children…
After the smoke, Su Qiubai rested for a little more before driving off again as the Maserati finally returned from its second lap.
Jun Xiaodao had chased the taxi the entire way and didn’t expect to see it again at the finish line.
This strengthened his faith. It was as if there was a voice in his heart kept telling him that he would definitely surpass the taxi in the next lap!
He didn’t realise at all that the taxi was only always seen at the finish line, because the driver had wanted a smoke and to quench his thirst before continuing the race.
It was the same in the third lap, the fourth lap… until the last lap!
Hopping out of his car, Jun Xiaodao felt that the whole game was just a tight match and that he could have almost won, despite losing the game!
So when he tried to provoke Su Qiubai in front of the whole crowd, everyone looked at him as if he was an idiot.
Tight match? The taxi driver had been leading with an average of five or six minutes in every lap. You call this a tight match?
Su Qiubai kept quiet, but the group of people started to mock Jun Xiaodao.
“You’re really shameless. Aren’t you a professional driver?!”
“This must be the best close match I’ve ever seen!”
“So this is the standard of the racers from Donghai City…”
Jun Xiaodao was confused for quite some time. It was only until the muscular boy had pulled him aside, and whispered the details of what had happened, then he reddened.
He felt greatly insulted, especially in front of Gu Chengya, he didn’t expect the facts to be like that.
Listening to the crowd’s laughter all around him, Jun Xiaodao felt like a fool in his racer’s garb.
“Xiao Dao, you performed excellently, please continue to work hard.” Gu Chengya may have also noticed that he wasn’t in a good state of mind, so she took the initiative to comfort him.
However, her comfort was like the strike of a match, completely igniting Jun Xiaodao.
He felt an indescribable anger and ascension rising in his heart as he glared red-eyed at Su Qiubai, who had his back faced towards him.
So before anyone could say anything, he took out a dagger, and rushed towards Su Qiubai.
By the time someone spotted it and loudly warned Su Qiubai, it was already too late for him to react.
The dagger slashed right below Su Qiubai’s ribs. If he hadn’t instinctively moved away at the last second, the result may have been more fatal.
When Jun Xiaodao saw Su Qiubai’s blood-stained clothes, he suddenly realized what he had done.
“Go to hell. Let’s kill him, brothers!”
Cao Toufei was thrown into a tizzy upon seeing Su Qiubai’s injury. He had just honoured and proclaimed Su Qiubai as his elder brother, and now he had been hurt by other people! Su Qiubai had even helped him to win the bet!
The group of youngsters took their weapons out of their car trunk in the blink of an eye, ready to surround Jun Xiaodao.
Gu Chengya also panicked. Who knew that Jun Xiaodao was so useless? He lost the game and even ended up injuring other people with his dagger.
Anyway, Gu Chengya was the one who brought Jun Xiaodao along, so she and her gang immediately moved to protect him. It seemed that a fight was about to start.
“Brothers, kill him!”
Cao Toufei really was a fearless young master. He snatched up a shovel and bolted straight towards them, even though Gu Chengya and her gang were protecting Jun Xiaodao.
Jun Xiaodao was dumbstruck, rooting at the spot.
Seeing that the shovel was about to smash into Xiao Dao’s head, the middle-aged man, who had been calmly standing behind Gu Chengya, acted.
Everyone only saw the flicker of a shadow, and Cao Toufei had already been kicked down; the shovel in his hand fell to the ground.
“Everyone, please calm down. This is just a misunderstanding. There’s no need to stir up a fight.”
The middle-aged man yelled. In order to ward off the youngsters, he picked up the shovel lying on the ground and directly bent it in half.
This man was called Gu Zhanchuan27Gu ZhanchuanGu Chengya's bodyguard.. He had been with Gu Chengya’s grandfather since he was a child. If it wasn’t to protect Gu Chengya, a man like him would never have appeared at such a place.
Gu Zhanchuan’s actions silenced the crowd. Cao Toufei’s brothers stood stock still. Gu Chengya also breathed a sigh of relief, believing that there would be no more issues now.
Suddenly, a cold voice bellowed from the back of the crowd.
“Everyone, move away!”
The youngsters scrambled to the side. Everyone could feel a murderous vibe rolling off the person coming up from behind them.
Jun Xiaodao especially had never imagined that such a frightening glare could come from a person, he ended up kneeling down on his knees as his legs gave way.
Only then did everyone realize that the big man was the one who had been sitting in the taxi’s passenger seat.
“How dare you hurt my brother, no one can escape today!”
Wu Song strode over, yelling. His murderous intent was even more obvious now.
Other people could tell that this person was very powerful, but Gu Zhanchuan, who was standing next to Jun Xiaodao, just felt horrified!
His body was trembling.
This is impossible! How could I not notice such a robust fighter here!
This person in front of him was domineering, just like the Asian black bear that he encountered at the snowfield border last time. In fact, this man was even more terrifying!
Gu Zhanchuan could easily guarantee that even the top 20 killers in the world wouldn’t have this kind of imposing demeanor!
Although he was ultimately unwilling to stay, he continued to stand still directly on the big man’s path. He was worried that Miss Gu’s safety would be threatened if he moved away. So, he forcefully took a step forward.
Gu Zhanchuan only had the time to utter a word when Wu Song raised his eyebrows, stared at him and interrupted.
Who is Wu Song? He’s an existence equal to that of the God of War!
There was such a sentence in the novel ‘Water Margin’: He was brave and audacious, just like a heaven-shaking lion descending from the sky. He was vehement and vigorous: like an earth-shaking Pixiu on its throne.[TLN: Pixiu is a Chinese mythical hybrid creature, a powerful protector of practitioners of Feng Shui, resembling a strong, winged lion.]
Besides, for the sake of loyalty, the things he had done weren’t as simple as a fight; he fought to the death!
Truthfully, he was very upset at himself for remaining in the car and not managing to prevent Jun Xiaodao from stabbing Su Qiubai!
And yet, this person standing before him must’ve been incredibly blind to actually try and block him from avenging Su Qiubai.
Sure enough, two words from him made Gu Zhanchuan swallow what he was about to say.
He took two steps backwards, moving away from Jun Xiaodao, before giving Gu Chengya a look, indicating that she too should quickly retreat.
She frowned, wanting to speak, but she was forced to retreat several steps, as he stood before her.
Although nothing had happened yet, Gu Zhanchuan could already guess Jun Xiaodao’s ending.
Wu Song’s murderous intent was too strong. Gu Zhanchuan was worried that he may be implicated if he said anything else, let alone Jun Xiaodao.
Moreover, he was almost certain that no one could save Jun Xiaodao. Even those daring murderers would be cowering far away from this place.
Jun Xiaodao was in a shock… He understood very clearly that this big man wanted to kill him.
Just as Wu Song was only a step away from Jun Xiaodao, and was about to make his next move, a weak voice groaned from behind the crowd.
“Brothers… Can you all first have a look at my injury, and then only take revenge? I’m really amazed by you guys. I’m not even dead. Can’t any of you bandage my wound… then only think about avenging me…”
Su Qiubai leaned against the hood of a BMW. His face was pale, and he was speechless.
Ridiculous! Is fighting really that important? No one cares about me!
His words stopped Wu Song from taking further actions. Everyone else turned their heads towards Su Qiubai. Gu Zhanchuan could only then, glimpse at a sliver of hope that Jun Xiaodao would survive.
However, the first one to break the silence was Cao Toufei who was still lying on the ground. His words, however, almost made Su Qiubai want to kill him.
“Big brother, you’re not dead yet…”
