Chapter 70: The World’s Turmoil Arises from People Like Us!
They saw Lin Beifan and his companions who were out for a spring outing at a glance and couldn’t help but be attracted by them.
The man was handsome and extraordinary, the woman was beautiful and charming.
The three of them sat on the ground while eating snacks, drinking wine, chatting about life, and living carefree.
The woman said, “Junior brother, there are people ahead! Let’s go and ask for directions!”
The man replied, “Okay, senior sister!”
Lin Beifan also noticed these two people. They were clearly martial artists of the jianghu.
The man was in his late teens, wearing a slightly loose blue robe, carrying a sword on his back.
The woman was about twenty years old, with delicate and beautiful features, and her black hair was flowing in the wind. She was wearing a purple and white Han robe, looking suave and heroic!
To be honest, this was not the first time that Lin Beifan had seen martial artists of the jianghu. But he had never seen anyone with such a style before. They exuded youthful spirit all over their bodies and should be from a famous family.
At this time, they had already arrived in front of Lin Beifan and his companions on horseback.
The woman in purple bowed her hand and said, “Greetings, three friends! We, two siblings, are from the north of Hebei and are headed to the capital! But we don’t know the way, so we came to ask for directions. We hope you can help us. Thank you!”
Lin Beifan laughed, “The capital is not far from here, we will be there soon! It’s fate that we meet, I have some great wine here. I would like to invite you two for a drink. Would you do me the honor?”
The woman hesitated for a moment.
“Senior sister, we have been on the road for half a day, and both us and the horses are tired. Why don’t we rest for a while?” The woman turned her head and found her brother staring at the two beautiful women.
She sighed helplessly.
He said resting, but he clearly had ulterior motives!
But they were indeed tired.
The woman in purple bowed and smiled, “Thank you for your kindness!”
“Please!” Lin Beifan smiled.
The two got off their horses and tied up the reins. Then they came to Lin Beifan and sat down on the ground.
At this point, Lin Beifan had already poured them a glass of wine, “Cheers!”
The two took a sip and exclaimed, “This is good wine!”
Lin Beifan smiled, “Of course, only good wine matches heroes!”
The two couldn’t help but smile.
Then they chatted.
Through their conversation, they learned that the man’s name was Guo Shaoshuai, and the woman’s name was Mo Rushuang. They came from the Iron Sword Gate in the north of Hebei and were here to do something in the capital.
Lin Beifan also introduced himself in a low-key manner as Lin Beifan, an ordinary handsome man.
They only felt familiar with the name and didn’t think much of it.
“I have always longed for the jianghu!” Lin Beifan smiled and asked, unable to resist inviting the two over.
“Could you tell me some interesting stories from the jianghu?”
This was his purpose in stopping the two, purely out of curiosity for jianghu gossip.
“Mr. Lin, what do you think jianghu is?” Mo Rushuang smiled and asked.
“Where there are people, there is jianghu!” Lin Beifan smiled and replied.
“Where there are people, there is jianghu…” Mo Rushuang’s eyes lit up.
“You said it well! Lin Gongzi, your understanding is very deep!”
“No, no, no…I think jianghu is a place where one can show off their prowess and become famous! As long as you are strong enough, you can use your sword to take care of all the injustices in the world and kill all the unjust people!”
Guo Shaoshuai exclaimed excitedly. After speaking, he couldn’t help but glance at the two women beside Lin Beifan.
However, he found that their gaze was fixed on Lin Beifan, not even sparing him a glance, leaving him very disappointed. He couldn’t help feeling jealous, thinking that it was because he was only slightly handsome. Can being handsome put food on the table?
Lin Beifan smiled lightly. “Guo brother, you are still young now and only see the beauty of jianghu, but not the piles of bones underneath. By the time you understand, you’ll be old! As the saying goes…when the world’s winds and clouds arrive, we in the jianghu have aged! Discussing the imperial vision and hegemony with a smile, unable to withstand the intoxication of life!” The women in attendance all had their eyes light up.
“What a great poem! What great literary talent!”
Guo Shaoshuai felt jealous once again.
What’s so great about that? Is it just because he’s more literary than me? Can this thing feed people?
“Mr. Lin, you’re also young. Why do you have such profound insights?” Mo Rushuang turned her gaze and smiled.
“Seeing through the ways of the world is all about learning, understanding human sentiment is all about writing! The more books you have read, the more you will understand. It’s nothing remarkable!” Lin Beifan replied with a faint smile.
Mo Rushuang sighed, “You said it so well! If everyone had Mr. Lin’s insights, then there would be much less strife in jianghu! Unfortunately, many people can’t see through this even after they die! When will jianghu be able to calm down?”
“As long as there are people, jianghu will never calm down!” Lin Beifan said.
“I think that to end the conflicts in jianghu, you need strength and a big fist! As long as you have enough strength and a big enough fist, no one will not yield to you! If they don’t yield, then beat them until they do!” Guo Shaoshuai couldn’t help but interject again, very excited.
“There is always a higher mountain, there are always those stronger than oneself. What is truly the strongest?” Lin Beifan asked.
“I don’t know, but I am working towards being the strongest! In the near future, I will put an end to the chaos in jianghu!”
“That’s some big talk. Are you really that strong?”
“Of course I’m strong! I’m already 17 years old and have reached the pinnacle of the eighth grade. Before I’m 20, I hope to reach the seventh grade, and before I’m 25, I hope to reach the innate realm. In the future, I hope to cultivate to the realm of a grandmaster!” After speaking, he raised his head proudly, full of energy.
Lin Beifan turned his head to look at the little princess. The little princess nodded and suddenly threw a punch. Guo Shaoshuai couldn’t react and was sent flying, with stars in his eyes. Lin Beifan turned his head back.
“It seems you’re not strong enough, let’s continue our conversation from before!”
Guo Shaoshuai: “Damn!”
