I struggled so much with this chapter. I was translating at the pace of a snail. My brain just wouldn’t move as I looked at the Chinese characters. *sigh* I hope you like this..

He Lao San loved to brag about his innate strength and unrivaled martial arts. He could sweep across Black Dragon Mountain with his double blade in one breath and not be tired at all. However, he had never met an opponent such as Lian Feng. He hadn’t even fought him yet, but he could already feel a slight chill in his heart.
He knew this was going to be a fierce battle, as he tightly held his double blade and looked at Wang Hei Hu.
Wang Hei Hu was very conflicted. He was not afraid to die, but at this moment, there were so many arrows pointing at his brothers who would go and have gone through fire and hell for him. How could he allow them to all die in front of him? As the big boss of the gang, he was responsible for their safety.
Wang Hei Lu gave He Lao San a warning glance as he dropped his blade.
Since the brothers saw their big boss surrendering, most of them also dropped their blades despite the raging anger inside them.
Now, out of the hundred or so members, only He Lao San and a few other impulsive brothers still had their weapons on hand. He Lao San was viciously glaring at Lian Feng. He wasn’t planning to surrender.
Lian Feng lifted his hand and signaled as a path was created for him in the middle: “Those who drop their weapons can leave. Those resisting, die.”
The last few words were said so icily that everyone felt their hearts tremble.
“Lao San, as long as we can stay on the green hill, we do not have to worry about having no firewood*. Don’t be rash.” Wang Hei Hu urged He Lao San.
“Big bro, you guys can leave! But I’m definitely not going to surrender to these Imperial dogs! I know you don’t want our brothers to die with you. But I’m different. Ever since I was young, I had no parents. The is my home. I’m not going to stare blankly as my home is being destroyed!! Today, as long as I, He Lao San, is alive, I will prevent anyone from touching our home!”
He Lao San’s righteous words touched all the brothers. Wang Hei Hu’s eyes immediately turned red as he grabbed onto He Lao San’s hand: “Lao San. You are right. This is our home. I’m not leaving either!”
Then, Wang Hei Hu picked up his blade and bellowed at his brothers: “My brothers, if you want to leave today, I will not be stopping you. But if you want to stay behind, stand next to me!”
Shortly after, someone picked up his weapon. One, then two, then three… everyone stood by Wang Hei Hu’s side; their eyes were glowering.
Seeing this did not bother Lian Feng at all. He signaled again, and all the arrows pointed directly at Wang Hei Hu and his gang.
At this life and death moment, suddenly a small black shadow tried sneaking away with a bundle. The person was crouching down and taking tiny steps as she tried to go off unnoticed.
Lian Feng sensed the movement and signaled. An arrow flew in the air and landed grimly above Lin Shan’s head, on the tree behind her.
“Ah!” Lin Shan hollered as she fell down and landed on the ground. Her eyes fearfully stared at the direction of the arrow, and she made eye contact with Lian Feng. Both of them were stunned.
Lian Feng recognized Lin Shan right away. It had already been a month since she had been gone. She was on his mind, day and night. Now that she had suddenly appeared, it was like a miracle. Not only that, she was wearing a female outfit, which made her look much more delicate compared to her male outfit.
Lin Shan’s clear pupils reflected the sunset, which accentuated her beauty even more. All these nights, he had imagined what she would look like as a woman. Now that she was within his grasp, it felt like a dream.
At the same time, Lin Shan also felt like she was dreaming. Just a moment ago, she had decided to forget about the past and start fresh. Now that she had encountered Lian Feng again, she was in awe. As he stood there, behind him was the red sunset. Sand was blowing faintly around the path, and his clothes was also swaying with the wind; his silver mask was shining under the light.
Wow, what a scene. Lin Shan felt slightly dazed. By the time she snapped out of it, the sunset was blocked by Lian Feng’s shadow. She felt bewitched as she stared at him with his mask on. Time seemed to have paused. The birds were quiet, the air was still, and even the white clouds seemed to be silently watching….
A hand reached out in front of her; a hand that held a sabre all year round. It was clean, generous, and there were calluses on the palm..his slender fingers were very evident.
Lin Shan felt like she must be possessed, because she didn’t even hesitate as she extended her hand. As her hand made contact with his hand, Lian Feng tightly held onto her and she felt a surge of strength pulling her up from the ground. The warmth from his hand made her reluctant to let go.
He Lao San didn’t expect Lin Shan to leave the mountains and suddenly placed herself in this dangerous position. In addition, he was shocked that the Imperial army leader ran towards his beloved Lin Shan to pull her up.
Are you kidding me? That tender, snow white little hand. This old man right here didn’t even dare to look at it while helping out in the kitchen for half a month! How dare you come and touch it on the spot?!
At that moment, He Lao San felt a raging fire inside of him. It was surging and exploding! He firmly held onto his double blade and leaped towards them. He shrieked: “You dog, let go of my woman’s hand!” He was about to chop Lian Feng’s hand.
Lin Shan was flabbergasted and wanted to interfere, but Lian Feng pushed her aside. He took out his golden sabre and the aura of death was present.
Sand and stones flew, and leaves were continuously falling. With one move, he managed to block He Lao San’s violent attack and forced him to take a couple steps back while they were still a few metres apart from each other.
As expected, he was a skillful fighter. He Lao San sighed inside, there were not many people who could block his attack. This guy even managed to force him to take steps back.
It seemed like he had truly met his match today. If he was going to fight and die like a man, then so be it.
He Lao San decided to give it his all. He leaped towards Lian Feng again as he swung his blade.
The Black Tiger Gang didn’t expect their second boss to suddenly start fighting the leader of the soldiers. The brothers exchanged eye contacts with each other and decided: Well, what are we waiting for? They all raised their weapons and started to charge towards the soldiers.
The opponents also raised their arrows.
“Don’t release the arrows!”
Lian Feng and He Lao San nearly said those words in unison. At the same time, they both looked at Lin Shan. They didn’t want her to suffer from any harm.
“Damn it! How dare he look at my woman’s hand?” He Lao San didn’t expect Lian Feng to react the same way he did, and instantly drowned in jealousy. He swung his blade again.
Although Lian Feng’s blade was fast and his style was sharp, he was not physically as strong as He Lao San. After a few moves, neither of them were winning.
Just like that, the two of them fought and fought. Lin Shan watched from the side and felt like she was watching an ancient drama. All she could see were the reflection of the blades and the sounds of metal hitting against each other. Bing bing bing bing. It was so magical.
Suddenly, she seemed to have realized something and slapped her thigh: Oh my goodness! At this rate, the golden sabre will be damaged!!!!
She quickly shouted: “Stop fighting! Stop fighting!! I’m telling you to stop!!”
Hearing Lin Shan’s voice distracted Lian Feng, and his movement slowed down slightly. He tried to avoid He Lao San’s blade, but he was one step too late. His arm got slashed, and fresh blood started spilling out.
Seeing Lian Feng injured, all those soldiers who put down the arrows immediately raised up their arrows again; facing He Lao San. If He Lao San dares to take another step, he will most likely end up looking like a hedgehog.
The situation was tense, and the gang members couldn’t hold back either as they raised their weapons.
At this crucial moment, Lin Shan went in between He Lao San and Lian Feng.
“Are you alright?” Lin Shan was panicking. Originally, she only cared about the golden sabre, but seeing Lian Feng injured, she was even more worried. She didn’t have second thoughts as she rushed towards him.
“I’m fine.” Lian Feng shook his head, as blood continuously poured out from his wound.
“What? How are you alright? Look at how much blood you’re losing?!!” Lin Shan was so worried, she wanted to cry. She ripped off a corner of her clothes and quickly used it to wrap around his wound.
What an astonishing moment. Underneath the sunset, between the sharp blades of two groups of men, was an unarmed and defenseless girl who was wrapping up a wound for a man. Her movements were clumsy, and her hands were shaking, but she did not back off at all.
Lian Feng felt like it was surreal. He was used to seeing blood, and he had slaughter many with his blade; but the woman in front of him has never dealt with blood, and probably never came across death. Yet, she was trying so hard to overcome her fear as she tried to help him stop the bleeding with her clean hands.
At this moment, Lian Feng felt like his injury was worth it.
