Hurricane In Siauw Lim Sie Chapter 04
"Indeed, Boanpwe's intelligence is still very low, it is impossible to match Locianpwe's intelligence, because in just a few moves, it is clear that Boanpwe will be able to destroy Locianpwe. Thus, it also meant that it was impossible for Boanpwe to seize Thiam-sim-kiam's sword by force.
"And Boanpwe only begged Locianpwe, to return the sword willingly, relying on the mercy of Locianpwe alone. Because what kind of responsibility should Boanpwe give, if until the sword disappears from the hands of Auwyang Toanio, while the person we are looking for we still have not been able to find? "
"Is it true what you said, that you do not yet know who is the person meant by Auwyang Fung Tang who asked you to meet him, who is expected to be your protector ........?" asked the old pastor then earnestly watching Tong Miauw Liang.
“Where does Boanpwe dare to lie?” said Tong Miauw Liang then in a half-mumbled voice, then he added it.
"But in this matter, indeed Boanpwe must try to investigate and find out, who exactly is the person that Suheng meant who asked us to meet him ........!"
"How can you possibly meet the person your suheng is referring to, Tong Siecu, if it's just his name you don't know and who that person is you don't know?" said the old pastor.
"But Suhengku just said that we really only need to go to Kang-ciu to meet that person because when we arrive in Kang-ciu, of course we will be greeted by that person, who in turn will be the protector of Auwyang Toanio and his son ..... ... ”
“Hmmm, who do you think that person is you guys looking for!?” asked the old priest again.
"Right now we really don't know it!" replied Tong Miauw Liang again.
"If that's the case, are you sure that someone will welcome you to Kang-ciu, who will protect you someday?" asked the old priest.
Tong Miauw Liang nodded. "I think Suhengku will not lie ........ isn't all this for the safety of his wife and son, of course he is not kidding in this question. If he's not sure, of course he won't just order us to go to Kang-ciu! ”
"Okay ........ now I want Bell to ask, if this Thiam-sim-kiam sword is true, Bell will return it to you. Then the people of Im-mo-kauw and the other Kang-ouw people who want this sword try to snatch this Thiam-sim-kiam sword from your hands. can you protect this sword and face them? ”
When asked that Tong Miauw Liang kept quiet, he finally took a deep breath.
"Indeed, what was asked by locianpwe can be accepted as a fact. Because if the sword remains in our hands, then come the people of Im-mo-kauw, also Tok-liong-pian and his companions, not to mention the other Kang-ouw people who want the sword, obviously alone Boanpwe can't face them well ........ "
"Didn't Loceng say earlier, with the Thiam-sim-kiam sword in Locang's hand, of course the difficulties that Tong Siecu should have experienced together with Auwyang Toanio and his son will be reduced by themselves!
"Now we just arrange it like this, let this Thiam-sim-kiam sword be in the hands of Bell. If indeed you have managed to meet the person meant by Auwyang Fung Tang, then that's when you come here again to take this sword from Bell!
"Don't worry Tong Siocu, even though Bell really wants this sword, but if the question is settled, it turns out that the person meant by Auwyang Fung Tang is the real owner of this mustika sword, and also who knows what Auwyang Fung Tang means. That's the strange swordsman who has Bell told me earlier, then Bell will certainly get rid of the desire to have this sword ........ ”
Tong Miauw Liang really couldn't just trust this priest. Because he already knew that the old priest also had the intention of possessing the Thiam-sim-kiam sword.
Isn't even his swordsmanship called Thiam-sim-kiam-hoat? Thus, is it not possible that the old priest was only pretending to be kind, promising to return the sword someday, in fact the priest had been desperately trying to possess the mustika sword?
However, after thinking for a while, Tong Miauw Liang finally accepted the proposal, because if he insisted on taking the sword back from the old priest's hands, it would be nothing. Not only would he not be able to face the old priestess but he would not be able to face Say-ong-kiam alone.
Therefore Tong Miauw Liang finally nodded.
"All right!" he said. "If indeed Locianpwe had said so, Boanpwe would not have dared to deny it!"
The old priest sighed, sighing. And then stretched out his hand, to take the hilt of the sword, and he went to the window, and drew the sword, which was stuck in the wood of the window, and put it in the frame. After that, the old priest said.
"If indeed Tong Siecu did not want to believe what Bell said, then this sword could have been taken by Tong Siecu, right now. No matter what Tong Siecu decides, all this is only for the good of Auwyang Toanio and her son ......... ”
Tong Miauw Liang smiled as he got up.
"All right, that's right Boanpwe just excused himself!" he said.
The old priest had nodded.
But when he left the room, Tong Miauw Liang asked again. "If indeed Locianpwe doesn't mind, get Locianpwe to declare the noble title of Locianpwe?"
"The bell is called Tong-kak Taisu ........!"
"All right Locianpwe, if we do manage to meet the person meant by suheng Boanpwe, then we will soon visit Locianpwe again!"
And after saying so, Tong Miauw Liang turned his body to leave. He took the same path as before when he entered the shrine, whereupon he took the path through the shrine walls. Thus, none of the priests in the temple knew about his arrival.
On the way back to his inn, Tong Miauw Liang really did not understand Tong-kak Taisu's attitude. Because the old priest could make such a decision, where even if he himself wanted Thiam-sim-kiam, if indeed Tong Miauw Liang managed to meet the person meant by Auwyang Fung Tang, of course the sword would be returned to him.
Regarding the priest's promise, Tong Miauw Liang was not sure of the truth. Because he doubted whether the priest was not just looking for a way to in this opportunity later hide himself and lose track.
However, if Tong-sister Taisu really meant to be bad for him, considering his very high intelligence, of course he could easily harm Tong Miauw Liang. And in fact, the priest did not do that.
Arriving at the guest house room, Tong Miauw Liang was still thinking about Tong-sister Taisu's strange attitude, he really didn't understand. Therefore, he has racked his brain to solve the problem.
Not to mention he thought too, who is the person meant by his suheng. Because of that, he has been covered by various question marks, which come and go in his brain and make Tong Miauw Liang more and more ignorant to deal with matters that have to do with the Thiam-sim-kiam.
Tong Miauw Liang collapsed on the bed with an uncertain mind hovering. The light on the table swayed, so that the shadows in the room also swayed. The atmosphere was very calm and quiet, because it was quite late at night.
But in a situation like that, suddenly a gentle gust of wind blew from outside the window, towards Tong Miauw Liang himself. Tong Miauw Liang was not surprised. He jumped from his bed to avoid the blow of the secret weapon.
And then he saw some piauw sticks and also some yellowish gleaming needles sticking through the bed. If he had not hurried to escape, he would have been the target of the secret weapons, of course he would have been wretched and suffered minor injuries.
But even Tong Miauw Liang did not remain silent. As soon as he saw that there were quite a number of secret weapons stuck in the bed, he quickly jumped into the window.
He pushed hard against the window, with that both his hands were moved, he attacked out, only to be followed by a jump of his body out. He made a punch like that to prevent the enemy from backing him when he jumped out.
Tong Miauw Liang's body movements were very agile and his body alighted outside the room lightly. He saw, around the place stood a dozen people, who stood tall with a hostile and threatening attitude.
One of them was immediately recognized by Tong Miauw Liang as Tok-liong-pian Kwee Cai In! While the others are the friends of the Venomous Dragon Whip!
"Why are you backing me?" snapped Tong Miauw Liang in anger.
Because earlier if he didn't dodge quickly, wouldn't that mean he couldn't live until now, and would become a victim of those secret weapons.”
Tok-liong-pian smiled mockingly.
"Hemmmm, there's something I want to ask you people of she Tong!" said Tok-liong-pian. "Have you met the bastard priest Say-ong-kiam while you were in Kang-ciu?"
Tong Miauw Liang watched the Venomous Dragon Whip for a while, until he finally laughed mockingly.
“You're looking for the priest Say-ong-kiam why don't you look for his tracks? So ask me, who has nothing to do with him!”
Responded like that, Tok-liong-pian laughed coldly, he said fiercely.
“You don't sell a joke in front of us! Of course your coming to Kang-ciu is to investigate where the Thiam-sim-kiam sword is, especially you will certainly investigate, where is that old priestess that bastard Say-ong-kiam, right?
“Well, now I don't need to fuss so much anymore! Tell me quickly, have you managed to find the traces of that bastard priest?”
Tong Miauw Liang wasn't horrified, he was laughing coldly, he replied. "If I had met him, what would you like to do? If they don't meet, then what do you want!?” he asked mockingly.
"Hemm, you useless human being, your intelligence is still low, but your behavior is so rancid! Of course if you tell a lie we will destroy you! ”
Tong Miauw Liang had laughed coldly. Even though he knew that he was no match for Tok-liong-pian especially besides the Venomous Dragon Whip there were many friends, but Tong Miauw Liang did not want to show his weakness, he had replied.
“I'm Tong Miauw Liang speaking what I know! So if you really want me to tell you about the priest Say-ong-kiam, there is one condition you must fulfill!”
"What are your conditions?" asked Tok-liong-pian impatiently. "Quickly say it!"
“Hemmmm, you Tok-liong-pian, because you were once presumptuous to try to seize and rob Thiam-sim-kiam which in the end because you humans are useless, then your heart's intention has failed! Now through my explanation you want to know the traces of Say-ong-kiam, then you have to kneel before me and call me Yaya (grandfather) three times, then I will tell you where Say-ong-kiam is........! ”
Tok Lioug Pian's face turned bright red, but just as he was about to speak in an angry manner, at that time a friend of his, who was near Tong Miauw Liang, couldn't hold back anymore. The machete in his hand was slashing Tong Miauw Liang's shoulder.
That attack, which was similar to a butt attack, didn't make Tong Miauw Liang cringe. Even he had let out a cold laugh, then jumped to the side to dodge himself, even while dodging, he had moved his right hand punched into the opponent's path of Liang-tie-hiat blood.
His opponent quickly pulled back his machete, and then jumped to the side and then continued his cross slash. He aimed for Tong Miauw Liang's waist and arms.
"Stop it!" snapped Tok-liong-pian in a loud voice.
His friend immediately restrained the sliding of his machete, he had jumped to the side, he quickly turned to Tok-liong-pian, he said
“Toako, why talk to this pointless human so much?”
Tok-liong-pian snorted slowly, then replied.
"With him we have no business whatsoever. We only need his description of Say-ong-kiam who has managed to escape Thiam-sim-kiam's sword.
“Therefore, if he really wants to give his statement, we can spare his soul! If he doesn't die speaking frankly, then we will kill his soul!"
Tok-liong-pian's voice was cold when he said such words, he had also been watching Tong Miauw Liang with wide eyes.
But Tong Miauw Liang himself was desperate, he had let out a cold laugh, then said.
"Even if my body is torn to pieces, if indeed you Tok-liong-pian don't want to kneel before me and call "Yaya" three times to me, hmmmm, hmmmm, don't expect you to get information from me!"
Tok-liong-pian has become really angry, how can he play calmly like that, especially since Tong Miauw Liang seems to be a stubborn person. But he could still ask.
"Do you really know where Say-ong-kiam is hiding?"
Tong Miauw Liang nodded.
"Yes," he said with a cold laugh.
"Okay, I'm ready to call you Yaya!"
And after saying so, Tok-liong-pian had stepped forward, and approached Tong Miauw Liang.
At that time they were only about half a spear apart, and Tong Miauw Liang just watched Tok-liong-pian by repeatedly making mocking laughs. Tok-liong-pian bowed his body but he did not salute, because as soon as his body bowed, his hands grabbed him very quickly.
In fact, those two hands contained very strong internal energy, because he intended to grip Tong Miauw Liang's stomach, and the most important blood pathways in Tong Miauw Liang's body, namely the Bun-sie-hiat and Leng-ku-hiat blood paths. The two blood paths found in the stomach, are blood paths that are directly related to the heart.
A person who is gripped or struck by the blood path will certainly lose his strength. And if it is stuck or gripped for too long, where the blood circulation to the heart becomes blocked, it means that the victim's soul is in danger of death.........
Tong Miauw Liang originally thought that Tok-liong-pian would salute and call her Yaya, and just now he wanted to mock Tok-liong-pian, that he really wanted Tok-liong-pian to kneel, not just bow like that, instead, both of Tok-liong-pian's hands had grabbed him. This made Tong Miauw Liang quickly jump backwards to escape.
Tok-liong-pian carried out such an attack, actually by having a careful calculation beforehand. He had already guessed that Tong Miauw Liang's grip on both hands would be successful and the only way to dodge was to jump backwards away from himself.
And because of that, without waiting for Tong Miauw Liang to jump down with his feet on the snow, it was at that time that Tok-liong-pian had advanced two steps with his arms still outstretched and the body still bent like that, so that the distance between the two hands was further, knocked on the path of Mang-su-hiat's blood near Tong Miauw Liang's waist.
The stab had hit the blood path hard and in an instant Tong Miauw Liang had fallen and could not move.
Quickly Tok-liong-pian had approached him, with a cruel face, he had snapped.
"Are you still not going to talk now?"
But Tong Miauw Liang had laughed coldly.
Even though he was on his knees and couldn't move, he didn't want to just give up. So he said in a disdainful voice.
"If you really want to kill me, kill it, but don't expect me to give you the information you want!"
And after, saying that, Tong Miauw Liang had closed his eyes tightly, he didn't care about Tok-liong-pian and his friends at all.
Tok-liong-pian himself was not playing angrily. He had, moving his right foot, kicked so hard, Tong Miuaw Liang's body was blown away three more spears.
"If indeed you still don't want to give us the information we want, then don't expect you to die in a comfortable way, because we have prepared the most delicious way of death, which is to die slowly! You just have to choose whether to give the information we want and we will release you, or indeed you will keep your mouth shut, but will accept a slow death……”
After saying that, Tok-liong-pian burst out laughing in a savage, sinister voice, containing a murderous aura.
Tong Miauw Liang himself had actually no longer thought about his life and death. But in the current state, where he has a duty to protect Auwyang Toanio and also Sung-jie, the two people, are in a resident's house outside Kang-ciu.
Naturally, Tong Miauw Liang had to, think twice, if he had to insist on keeping his mouth shut. Finally he said too.
“Alright, I explain what I know! What do you want to ask?”
Tok-liong-pian looked overjoyed to hear that Tong Miauw Liang was willing to provide the information they wanted. He stepped closer, he asked.
"Have you met Say-ong-kiam?"
"Not yet!" said Tong Miauw Liang in a firm voice, he also shook his head.
"Hmmm, don't lie!" snapped Tok-liong-pian. "If you mess around with your answers, there's no other choice, but to use our methods to force you to open your mouth!"
What Tok-liong-pian meant was that he wanted to torture Tong Miauw Liang.
But Tong Miauw Liang himself had laughed dryly, he said.
"You asked me to speak the truth, then after I gave an honest answer, why did you even threaten to torture me?"
Tok-liong-pian's face turned bright red. In a huff he snapped.
“I want you to explain where Say-ong-kiam is!”
"I'll let you know if I know where the priest is. But I really don't know, so what information should I give!?”
Tok-liong-pian laughed coldly a few times, he said.
“Hemm, earlier you asked me to kneel down and call you Yaya three times, then you will explain where Say-ong-kiam is. But now that you're saying you don't know where that bastard priest is…. Isn't that an idiot worth laughing at?”
Tong Miauw Liang laughed bitterly as well.
"Earlier I was only playing with you, by asking you to kneel down, and calling me Yaya three times, I just wanted to vent my anger, because you tried to snatch Thiam-sim-kiam's sword from our hands, although in the end your efforts failed. ”
Tok-liong-pian's face became even redder, so fierce, his right foot kicked Tong Miauw Liang's head so hard that Tong Miauw Liang was in pain. But he didn't moan, but instead made a mocking laugh, he said then holding back the pain.
“Earlier you promised me that if I spoke frankly, you would free me which you would not torture! But now that I've spoken frankly, why are you torturing me, eh?”
Tok-liong-pian has responded savagely. “We will not only torture you, but we will destroy you! This time I reiterate once again, do you want to speak frankly or not?”
“If not, what do you want to do?” challenged Tiong Miauw Liang. “I'm speaking frankly, I'm telling you that I really don't know where the priest Say-ong-kiam is hiding, but you still say that I'm lying. It would be better if I were to lie by mentioning a place for you to go looking for that priest in vain……!”
"Hemmmm, we will cut your tongue!" replied Tok-liong-pian.
“Cut my tongue? Hahahahaha!” laughed Tong Miauw Liang. “It's so nice of you to talk, by cutting my tongue, means information you will never get!? You want?"
“But, in this case, we can find that bastard priest without your information. We'll finally be able to find traces of that goddamn priestess! Well, Lojie, go and cut off that She Tong's tongue!" Tok-liong-pian's words were addressed to one of his friends.
His friend Lojie agreed, he drew his sword and then walked over to Tong Miauw Liang who was still lying still in the snow.
"Open your mouth!" snapped Lojie.
"Hmmm..........!" Tong Miauw Liang just snorted with wide eyes watching Lojie bravely.
"Open your mouth!" snapped Lojie in a savage voice and her sword had been slashed, so that the buzzing made a very loud sound.
Suddenly Tong Miauw Liang had spat in Lojie's face. However Lojie had tilted her head, so she dodged the spit.
Lojie was furious, she had moved her sword, about to pry out Tong Miauw Liang's mouth. But Tong Miauw Liang remained silent.
The tip of the sword hit his mouth, when Lojie snapped it, the mouth was torn apart by the blade. But Tong Miauw Liang did not whimper in pain, instead he let out a cold laugh.
How boldly he had sounded her mocking laughter over and over again, he didn't show any feelings of scorn at all.
While Lojie, who was so curious, had moved his sword again, he had cheated Tong Miauw Liang's mouth with the tip of his sword. Then he stretched out his other hand to force Tong Miauw Liang's mouth open.
At that time Tong Miauw Liang was lying completely helpless, unable to move, he naturally couldn't put up a fight. And when his jaw is pinched, his mouth opens.
But Tong Miauw Liang tried to close his mouth again unsuccessfully. Lojie's sword had slid into his mouth.
In fact Lojie had moved the sword, which was spinning around. Immediately, blood spewed out of Tong Miauw Liang's mouth.
Tong Miauw Liang also suffered from extreme pain. His tongue was not cut, but it was injured. Likewise the whole wall in his mouth, was wounded by the edge of the sword, so that the blood gushed out very much.
At that time Lojie let out a cold laugh, his left hand was gripping Tong Miauw Liang's neck, he was choking hard.
Choked like that, Tong Miauw Liang's mouth opened wide and his blood -stained tongue was sticking out. For a moment Lojie's sword flashed.
Tong Miauw Liang's tongue had been cut off. And because of the unbearable pain, Tong Miauw Liang had squirmed and then passed out unconscious.
Tok-liong-pian laughed heartily. He said. "We will wait until he regains consciousness! Is he still reluctant to testify and stubborn like before? ”
Having said that, Tok-liong-pian Kwee Cai In turned to a friend, he said. "Go get some water!" And to another friend Tok-liong-pian had ordered the removal of stationery.
When the other Tok-liong-pian friend returned with a jug of water, which was immediately poured on Tong Miauw Liang, Tong Miauw Liang woke up from his stupor.
"Now do you want to give a good explanation or not? Here we have provided stationery, and you can write the information you want to provide it. If you dare to be playful and stubborn again, hmmm. hmmm, we will cut your hands off!”
Tong Miauw Liang whose tongue had been cut off, where for the next he would be a crippled man, thus he became determined.
He just stood there holding back the pain in his mouth and tongue. He had closed his eyes and thought, at least he would be destroyed by Tok-liong-pian.
"Do you still not want to give the information we want?" Tok-liong-pian asked fiercely.
Tong Miauw Liang, have been silent. A pair of eyes were closed tightly.
Tok-liong-pian repeated his question several times, because he was not served, he became fierce, his right foot kicked hard, into Tong Miauw Liang's chest. Instantly Tong Miauw Liang vomited fresh blood, as he had been injured inside.
"Quick, you give the information we want by writing on this paper!" Tok-liong-pian's orders, while the friends of the Venomous Dragon Sprint had heard their mocking laughter.
Tong Miauw Liang still did not serve his eyes remained closed, He had given up hope and knew that it was difficult for him to escape death at the hands of Tok-liong-pian, so he was determined and wanted to take a silent attitude so that Tok-liong-pian went crazy and killed him. Because if he is tormented continuously so that his body is deformed, then life is useless.
The tok-liong-pian who had apparently been furiously annoyed, had taken a sword from his friend, he had said fiercely.
"Good! If indeed you are still not willing to provide the information we want, we will cut your hand off!"
The threat was accompanied by waving his sword in the face of Tong Miauw Liang.
Tong Miauw Liang kept his eyes closed, this added to Tok-liong-pian's anger. Suddenly the sword flashed and Tong Miauw Liang's left hand had been cut off by it. It was unbelievable the pain that covered Tong Miauw Liang's hands and shoulders, because the blood was already pouring out profusely.
Tok-liong-pian snapped again.
"If you persist in being stubborn, then I will kill your right hand as well!"
His words were accompanied by his sword being raised to slash into Tong Miauw Liang's right hand. At that time, Tong Miauw Liang, who was in tremendous pain, could only speak.
"Uh, uh, uh, uh." not a single word managed to escape his mouth, for his tongue had indeed been cut off.
Indeed, he wanted to tell Tok-liong-pian, if indeed Tok-liong-pian wanted to kill him, he asked Tok-liong-pian to destroy him immediately without having to torture him like that. But now, not a single word did he manage to say.
That time Tok-liong-pian had snorted a cold laugh, he said.
"Well, a stubborn bastard like you deserves a well -deserved reward!" and "sring!" the sword in his hand moved again, slicing the stump of Tong Miauw Liang's right hand.
Thus, in addition to his tongue being cut off, and both hands were also amputated, Tong Miauw Liang became a crippled man who only had a pair of legs.
"We will not kill you. If I kill you that's the most fun thing for you! We will let you live on, but with such a situation ........! ” said Tok-liong-pian in a fierce voice and then he laughed out loud.
Then he signaled to his friends to leave the place, leaving Tong Miauw Liang lying on a pile of snow with blood smeared on his body and around it, so that the color of the snow around Tong Miauw Liang was red.
Overwhelmed with indignation and curiosity, because not the slightest bit of information he wanted could be gleaned from Tong Miauw Liang's mouth, Tok-liong-pian invited his friends to leave the inn.
The next morning, there was a commotion at the inn. Suppose the waiter of the inn found Tong Miauw Liang lying on a pile of snow in a horrible condition.
The waiter suspected that last night after the arrival of the robber, who had abused him, Tong Miauw Liang immediately lifted Tong Miang Liang to his room, to lie on the bed. The healer was immediately called by the owner of the inn.
For more than a week Tong Miauw Liang lay on the bed, finally the wound had dried up and gradually healed. After three more days, the wound was completely healed.
But now Tong Miauw Liang had become a crippled human, because apart from being a dumb person, he also didn't have a pair of hands anymore. He only had a mere pair of legs, which he could still use to walk.
Tong Miauw Liang's curiosity and heartache is no joke. He swore in his heart, as long as he was still breathing and as long as he still had a chance to live, one day he would certainly look for Tok-liong-pian, to avenge his hurt.
That evening, Tong Miauw Liang visited Tong-kak Taisu temple. The old pastor was shocked when he saw Tong Miauw Liang's condition like that. Using a pit bitten by his teeth, Tong Miauw Liang has written words that recount what he has experienced.
Tong-kak Taisu took a deep breath, he said regretfully. "Hey, hey, who would have thought that Thiam-sim-kiam's sword always brought such terrible events."
Tong Miauw Liang had also listed Tok-liong-pian Kwee Cai In's name as the person who had wronged him.
Tong-kak Taisu had nodded, "Yes, Bells think, they will certainly come to visit Bells too, because eventually they will know that my disciple's nephew, Say-ong-kiam Kwie-bun Hosiang, is in this temple!" said Tong-kak Taisu with a sigh.
At that time, Say-ong-kiam had also come to see Tong-kak Taisu. In Say-ong-kiam, Tong-kak Taisu had told what happened to Tong Miauw Liang.
Hearing all that, Say-ong-kiam had sighed, his face turning red, then he said fiercely.
“If Tok-liong-pian really has intelligence, why didn't he come here to deal with me or my teacher uncle? Hmmmm. Siauw-ceng will go find them to avenge Tong Siecu's hurt!”
But Tong-kak Taisu had been moving his hands, he prevented his disciple's nephew's wish.
"Soon they will come here!" said the old priest. “You don't need to look for them, Kwie-bun, let it be later if they know that Thiam-sim-kiam's sword is in our hands and they came here, we'll just beat them up, all to avenge Tong Siecu's hurt! Well Tong Siecu, what are you going to do next?”
Tong Miauw Liang had written using his teeth to bite the pit. He wrote the words to find Auwyang Toanio and her son.
"If indeed Tong Siecu wants to believe in the sincerity of our hearts, then Auwyang Toanio and his son should be invited here, so that we can protect them from the hands of the rotten man!"
Tong Miauw Liang did not immediately respond, he seemed to think for a moment.
But finally he nodded as well, and wrote with a pit bitten by his teeth, that he wanted to trust the safety of Auwyang Toanio and his son in the hands of Tong-kak Taisu and Say-ong-kiam.
This was because Tong Miauw Liang thought that he had become a crippled human, with both his hands dead, so it could be said that all his martial arts skills were no longer there, and what he did was very limited.
Therefore, he also believed that it was impossible to protect Auwyang Toanio and his son any further. So the advice given by Tong-kak Taisu has been approved.
"Let me pick them up!" wrote Tong Miauw Liang again.
Tong-kak Taisu agreed. So accompanied by Say-ong-kiam, Tong Miauw Liang went out to Kang-ciu to pick up Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie.
However, when they arrived at the resident's house where Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie were kept, the mother and child were no longer there. Meanwhile, the owner of the house was lying on his bed in a state of severe bruises.
From his stagnant testimony, it turned out that in that place, in his house, yesterday had come a dozen people, who had brought Auwyang Toanio and her son by force. And also the owner of the house was beaten en masse, until he was battered and seriously injured, because there were some "guests" who were not in the law and even used sharp weapons to injure him.
Tong Miauw Liang was so sad. He has followed Say-ong-kiam looking for Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie around Kang-ciu.
However, the traces of the mother and child could not be found, nor did they suspect that the dozens of people who kidnapped the mother and child, of course, Tok-liong-pian and his friends. But they did not manage to find any traces of Tok-liong-pian.
Finally the two had returned to the Tong-kak Taisu temple.
What happened to Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie, the mother and the child?
It turned out that two days since they had settled in the Cin family's house, which is the resident's house where Tong Miauw Liang had left them, that night something happened that they really didn't expect. Because at midnight, dozens of people had arrived, which forced Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie to come with them.
Auwyang Toanio had insisted on not wanting to come with them, hugging Sung-jie, they were mother and daughter sitting on the floor not moving, despite being pushed and pulled by force.
Finally, one of the uninvited “guests” slapped Auwyang Toanio hard, then withdrew his hand, whereupon Auwyang Toanio was thrown out of the house.
Because Auwyang Toanio hugged his son tightly, the mother and daughter were automatically thrown out. Luckily, it was snowing outside the house at that time, so they didn't fall down and sprain their hands or feet.
While crying, Auwyang Toanio was screaming for help. But at that late night, especially the She Cin people's house was secluded far from other houses, no one came to help.
Only the owner of the house is trying to protect Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie. But he is a weak person, does not understand martial arts.
So when he was beaten with a crowd, he could only receive raw bombardments from the stabs from that person which made him battered and badly injured.
Then by force the people had dragged Auwyang Toanio and his son to be taken away from the place. It's no wonder that Auwyang Toanio is really looking forward to the arrival of Tong Miauw Liang.
Although Tong Miauw Liang was not as intelligent as her husband, who was thought to have been killed at the hands of the Im-mo-kauw people, still if Tong Miauw Liang appeared at that time, he could at least help them mother and child. However, Tong Miauw Liang still never appeared, even though the dozen had brought the mother and child for more than twenty lie.
They are not heading to Kang-ciu, but heading in the opposite direction, which is to leave Kang-ciu. All of those people, who numbered a dozen people, wore masks made of green silk, and their faces could not be seen, only their eyes could be seen from the two holes of each mask.
Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie were given a horse, and the horse was led by one of the dozen. And they traveled very slowly, only because Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie couldn't run their horses fast enough.
"Hmmmmm, we have caught this woman, especially the child we have caught, of course you will be happy to receive the results of our work this time...!" so one of them said with great joy, when they came to a bend in the road.
The others nodded and agreed. Dozens of people have traveled continuously with Auwyang Toanio and his son.
Meanwhile, Auwyang Toanio himself wondered who these people were, all of whom were wearing green face masks.
At that time one of them had said.
"In my opinion, it would be better if the woman and her child were just full-blooded, so that by bringing the woman and child along on one of our horses, the trip could be made much faster!"
Some of them agreed, but some agreed.
"We don't need to be in too much of a hurry," he said.
"But we have to hurry to our place, to prevent anyone from chasing us because the she Tong person who was originally with this woman and child, we didn't meet at the house maybe he was going somewhere, and thus , if he comes back and doesn't see the woman with this child, it's clear he'll be after her immediately."
Thus, some of them immediately negotiated, with the decision that Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie should be impaled, so as not to complicate their journey. After being punched, Auwyang Toanio and his son, Sung-jie, were tied to a horse, and then the reins were held by one of them, whereupon they were now able to escape their respective horses much faster than before.
Auwyang Toanio was curious as well as scared. He together with Tong Miauw Liang did indeed try to save Sung-jie, so that the child would not be afflicted with disaster and calamity, avoiding themselves from their enemies.
But now, the mother and daughter had fallen into the hands of those wearing the green masks. Thus, the safety of the two of them, Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie, was seriously threatened. But the two of them, indeed completely helpless and could only resign themselves to fate, waited for what would happen to them..........
The group of men in green silk masks made their way steadily westward, and in a short time they had passed twenty more lies. And before the light of dawn would break, the group had arrived at a not-so-big village.
The men had taken off their respective green silk masks, and kept the green masks. Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie could clearly see that the faces of these people were savage, hideous faces of various shapes. There are long ones with thick mustaches and beards on their chins, or those with round faces like bak-pauw.
But there is something in common between them, that is, each of their necks is strung with a necklace whose girdles are small swords made of gold! Because the dozen or so people wore similar necklaces, with the same pendant in the same shape, perhaps the small swords made of gold glittered in the morning sun, were symbols of their association.
At that time, the group of people wanted to bring Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie into the village. But near the door of the village, when they were about to pass, sat a priest wearing a white robe, as white as snow, piled around the place.
The priest was probably over forty years old, his head was bald and in front of him was the Pan-uh bowl, which is a special bowl for asking for alms. Also in his left hand he holds Bok-khie and in his right hand the bat, which he is tapping slowly, his mouth also reads Liam-keng. mumble slowly.
When the group of people was about to pass, the priest had opened his eyes which had been closed since he had also said in a patient voice, accompanied by a smile.
“Gentlemen with generous hearts will certainly not mind giving a silver tail or two to Siauw-ceng (poor priest)?”
The dozen people just glanced at them, they snorted and ignored the priest,
The priest watched with a smile on the group of people who were about to enter the village. he gently tapped Bok-khie in his hand, his mouth also said.
"Only a small donation from gentlemen, but it means a lot to Siauw-ceng, don't you have the desire to be generous in giving?"
Indeed, the dozen people did not want to ignore the priest, they ran horses into the village. But the priest's eyes suddenly lit up when he saw a woman and a boy tied to a horse, who were in a state of helplessness.
Seeing the state of the woman and child who were bound like that. the priest had been able to draw the conclusion that women, small children were helpless humans and became prisoners of the dozens of people who were with them. The priest had also seen the faces of the dozens of people who were cruel, and their condition showed that they were not good human beings.
“Hold on…… wait a minute!” suddenly the priest had cried out in a loud voice.
At that time, two people who were near the priest, had glared while still sitting on the back of their horses.
“Stupid priestess, what do you want to be fussy about?” they snapped almost in unison, displeased.
The priest remained seated, but he smiled kindly, he said patiently.
“It has become Siauw-ceng's rule, everyone who wants to enter this village must donate one tail to Siauw-ceng. There are a dozen of you, which means you have to donate a dozen silver tails. For those who do not want to comply with Siauw-ceng's rules, then that person is not allowed to enter this village!"
“Crazy priest!” shouted the man in annoyance. "What rule did you use, so that everyone who wants to enter this village must give one tail to you?"
"That's Siauw-ceng's rules and no one can disobey, because if there are people who don't want to comply with Siauw-ceng's rules, hmm, hem, it's hard to go to heaven at the end of his death!"
Despite saying that, the priest's face was beaming, he had a friendly smile and also very patient attitude.
The dozen or so people understood that this priest who wore a white robe, and his face was flushed fresh, without maintaining a mustache or beard, was a priest, not just an ordinary priest, his sturdy body had strong energy. Deliberately mentioning regulations like that seemed the priest was indeed looking for business with them.
In fact, one of the dozen, who seemed to be their leader, had signaled to two of his friends who were near the priest.
The two friends understood what they had to do, for both had jumped off their horses very lightly, their bodies like two eagles, not to mention their feet perched on a pile of snow. A pair of their hands each moved to grip the shoulders and skull of the bald priest.
The priest made no attempt to dodge the attacks of the two men, he remained seated in his place quietly, and when the attack was about to arrive, he had raised both hands, still gripping Bok-khie and the bat, he adopted a gesture of salute. He has also uttered the greatness of the Buddha.
The ending was extraordinary, because the two people who had attacked the priest had even let out screams. The time of their pair of hands was almost on target. they felt an overwhelming repulsive force and their bodies had bounced and rolled in the snow for more than four spears. His other friends were shocked when they saw the fate of their two friends.
They had jumped off their horses and were standing around the priest in a threatening manner. At that time they had snapped violently.
"Foolish priestess seeking death!"
There are also those who snapped. "You don't know who we are yet, you bastard bald priest!"
But the white-robed priestess still carried a calm demeanor. "Siauw-ceng said earlier, anyone who doesn't want to fulfill the rules that Siauw-ceng has made, will definitely not be able to enter this village!"
“Crazy rules!” shouted some of them.
"Does the door to this village belong to your ancestor, a bald priest, so you want to collect a tax of one tail for everyone who wants to enter this village?"
The white-robed pastor remained calm, he remained silent and smiled.
He didn't give an answer at all. At that time, the person who was the leader of the group of people had approached with wide strides, he was furious. As soon as he got close, his hands moved quickly and powerfully against the priest's chest and head.
But the white-robed priest did not rise from his seat at all. He did know that the attack of this person's two fists was very strong, because before his attack arrived, the wind of blows roared very strongly.
The priest just clasped his hands while praising the greatness of the Buddha. A very strange event tired of happening again.
Although the priest did not parry or attack back, but at that time the person who was the leader of the group of dozens of people, had jumped up and down while pulling his hands home, because he was suffering from great pain. It was as if he hit steel or iron plate with great force, as if the priest's entire body was protected by an invisible layer of wall!
With a flushed face, the person who was the leader of the group of people, who was in pain, had snapped.
"Fucking priest, what occult science have you used?"
The pastor had smiled patiently, he said. “Omitohud! As a loyal follower of Hud-couw, how can Siauw-ceng use all the occult knowledge! ”
"Who the hell are you, bastard priest?" shouted the person who was the leader of the group of people, in a cruel voice.
"Siauw-ceng Wan-sin Hweshio," replied the priest.
"Hmm, don't you know who you're dealing with?" snapped the man again. "You dare to be rude looking for business with us, don't you love your skull?"
"Oh, oh, of course Siauw-ceng loves Siauw-ceng's head," replied Wan-sin Hweshio. “And besides, of course Siauw-ceng knows who he is dealing with because Siauw-ceng still has a pair of eyes that can see clearly, that you are ordinary humans just like Siauw-ceng. Is it true that Siauw-ceng's assumption that you guys are humans too?"
No wonder the person who became the leader of the dozen people was angry and furious. He had a creepy snap.
“We are Im-mo-kauw people! You know Im-mo-kauw? Have you heard of it?”
The person who became the leader of the dozens of people suspected that when he mentioned Im-mo-kauw this priest would tremble with fear. But the fact that the priest had even clasped his hands, he mentioned the greatness of the Buddha, only then said.
"Omitohud! Omitohud! Apparently you guys are from Im-mo-kauw. Then, if now Siauw-ceng has found out that you are Im-mo-kauw's people. So what?"
The face of the person who was the leader of the dozens of people had turned even redder, and even said in a more violent voice.
“No one who dares to hit us can survive! Hmm, with you being so impudent, no rain or wind has dared to seek business with us, then do you know what punishment you will receive from us?"
"Punishment? Omitohud! Siancai! Siancau. What is Siauw-ceng guilty of, so that he must receive the punishment?” said the priest in a patient voice. "Siauw-ceng doesn't feel that he has committed a sin and an act that violates the law, why should he receive punishment?"
Responded so constantly by the pastor, Wan-sin Hweshio and the dozen people were getting more and more irritated and angry, they had pulled out their respective weapons.
Some grabbed their swords, some grabbed their machetes. Everyone prepares to attack. While the priest remained calm and sat quietly in his place, only his eyeballs had played.
“Ai, ai, why do you want to play with all kinds of children's playthings like that, you might end up spraining your hands……” The priest's voice was very patient.
And he too was smiling, he didn't show any feelings of apprehension or fear in the face of the threat of dozens of people who had surrounded him with such sharp weapons.
At that time, Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie who were on horseback in a tied state were not worried. They were worried that the pastor might be harmed by the dozen people.
While the person who was the leader of the dozen, had drawn his sword, where with his sword he came forward to stab the priest while shouting. "Fucking priest, we're not joking with you!"
His sword snapped very quickly, and if it did hit its target, it would have a hole in the priest's chest.
But Wan-sin Hweshio instead brought a calm attitude as if not seeing the coming of the sword attack that slid into his chest. He just while laughing had lifted his Bok-khien knocker and then slowly knocked the man's sword.
"Tringgg!", The sword struck slowly, but the end was great, where the sword had slipped from the grip of the man's hand, bounced far enough away, stuck in a pile of snow.
“Ai, ai, why did you throw away that sword?” asked Wan-sin Hweshio with a look of astonishment.
Meanwhile at that time, a dozen other people had charged forward with sharp weapons, they attacked fiercely, striking in various directions from the limbs of Wan-sin Hweshio's deadly limbs.
Thus, it means that Wan-sin Hweshio is in no small danger. Because he was sitting cross-legged, while the attacks came from various directions.
But in fact Wan-sin Hweshio easily and slowly moved his Bok-khie knocker, so that a "tring, tring, tring" sound was heard, several times, followed by the screams of pain from the dozens of people.
Because their swords and machetes had bounced off the knock of Bok-khie's beater. Their swords were hurled and slipped from the grip, stabbing the snow.
The dozen or so people had jumped back with their faces turning pale. With this incident, by itself it proves that this priest is really not a random priest, has great intelligence.
After looking at each other, the dozen or so people jumped on their horses, to escape their horses running away from the priest. But the priest did not want to let the people escape. He had shouted.
“Ai, ai, where are you going? Siauw-ceng said, before giving one tail to Siauw-ceng, no one is allowed to enter the village! ”
The pastor, Wan-sin Hweshio, didn't just say anything, because he also moved Bok-khie and his bat, which he moved slowly.
But from Bok-khie and his bat came a very strong wind. And what's amazing is that dozens of horses suddenly bend their four legs, have stabbed, so that the rider is thrown and collapsed on a pile of snow. When the dozens of horses were able to stand up, the dozen people had not been able to jump to their feet.
With a huff, dozens of people crawled up. They were watching each other, then the person who was their leader had said.
“Alright goddamn priest, we will always remember today's lesson, we will also remember your title, which is Wan-sin Hweshio! Hmmm, we'll see each other someday!"
And he had taken his horse, led him. He did not intend to enter the village again, but to take another major, because he was canceled to enter the village,
Likewise, his companions, who had taken their horses, jumped on their horses, to leave the place. They didn't want to force their way into the village, because they didn't want anything to do with the bogus priest.
One of them has led the horse on which Auwyang Toanio and Sung-jie are tied.
But the priest, when he saw the dozens of people about to leave, had said.
"If you can't enter without paying, you can't leave without paying?" the pastor's voice was very loud.
Meanwhile, a dozen people turned towards him and looked at him with cruelty and misbehavior. "Indeed, what you want" 'snapped their leader.
"Siauw-ceng wants one of you to donate one tail, neither more nor less," replied the pastor.
The eyeballs of the people were so glaring with rage, yet they realized it was impossible for them to give resistance. Wan-sin Hweshio had pointed to Ouwyang Toanio and Sung-jie, he said.
"If indeed you do not have money to donate to Siauw-ceng, then donating human beings also Siauw-ceng does not mind accepting it! You leave the woman and the little boy, and you can lift your legs and leave this place ........ ”
The faces of the dozen people changed again. They are angry, curious, scared and scared into one.
Now they just found out that this priest was after their two captives. By looking for business with them, it turns out that it intends to snatch their two captives.
But the one who was the leader of the dozen, who turned out to be Im-mo-kauw's people, had shook his head. He said in a loud voice.
“We have done our Kauwcu duty. These two people, mother and daughter, have very important business with our You.
"If you really want these two people, you'd better talk directly to our Lord, because we don't dare to give these two people to you at all!"
"If you don't want to donate money, do you mind donating the two people?" Wan-sin Hweshio asked. He asked so, but his voice and demeanor remained patient, only his eyes emitting a sharp beam.
Those Im-mo-kauw people who had known that this Hweshio had high intelligence and were no match for them, had their guts shriveled up, but the one who was the leader immediately reached into his pocket, he took out fifteen tails of silver, thrown near the shore. I'm the priest.
"We only donate money. We numbered fifteen people, so we donated fifteen tails! ” he said.
"Less!" said the priest.
"Less?" asked the leader of the Im-mo-kauw group, frowning. "Didn't you say that we alone should donate one silver tail! We are all fifteen people, don't we have to donate fifteen silver tails? ”
Wan-sin Hweshio shook his head. "Not!" he said. "The amount is less," he said later.
"Why less? You count yourself, there are fifteen of us in all!”
“That's right, but Siauw-ceng had to put in a lot of energy, take a look….. Then the hem of Siauw-ceng's robes was dirty, if it had to be washed, of course it would have to cost two silver tails to wash it.
"Then Siauw-ceng used quite a lot of energy, so in order to recover Siauw-ceng's energy, he had to eat a lot. To buy Siauw-ceng's food is not enough six silver tails! Well, then you have to add another twenty tails of silver, to cover all the costs that Siauw-ceng has to incur……”
The face of the leader of the group of Im-mo-kauw's people turned red, because he knew that the excuses given by the priest were only made up.
