Greed and Gluttony.
Talking about rats, I should get Hao to cut his tendons. It will be fun whipping the old lady. If only she ignored the rat when he begged for food. If only she never took him in. Ah, how I wish to see her face as she regrets taking that rat in!
The young masters face suddenly twisted as it altered from his usual carefree and aloof act to an empty face devoid of all emotion.
”sigh… the bastards are playing outside again. Why must they be so loud? ” he said to himself. ”it is as if they beg for torture. As if they beg for death. Might as well make that 23 soon-to-be-dead. ” he said as he hovered over to the trio of children.
”why hello there, children. Are you having fun? ” he asked, showing them his signature snake-like smile.
”yeah! Does big bro wanna play with us too? ” asked the youngest of the trio.
His fellow bastards as well as the whores who were watching from afar had seemed to realize the grim future that awaited the youngest, but neither party dared to do anything for fear of offending the Pangzi.
”if you were to be murdered today, what do you think your mother would do? ” asked the Pangzi.
”she would find the person who did it and beat his face in! ” said the youngest as he punched the air in front of him.
Stupid child. She wouldn give a damn about you. Your entire life is just a free ticket for her to stay within the Jia family. There is no way she actually cares about you. Unless you, her ticket to a happy life, die. Otherwise, she wouldn give a damn.
”then what do you think I would do? ”
”you would help her find that person! ” he said confidently.
How dare you dictate my actions and feelings!? If you were smart enough, maybe you could have lived a little longer? At least my boredom will dissappear soon.
After hearing the childs response, an audible sigh was followed by a high-pitched scream that threatened to burst nearby eardrums.
At first, the young master kicked the childs solar plexus. A truly painful spot for both children and adults alike. Especially males. Then he went on to kicking the childs arms before taking out a knife from his sleeve and started cutting away at the flesh of the childs leg.
After he removed the flesh off a significant portion of the childs calf and thighs, he called over a nearby servant who was trying desperately do disappear off the face of the world. The young master had the servant strip the youngest and thrown into the decorative lotus pool nearby.
The youngest was still conscious and alive, as Pangzi made sure not to kill him with the beating and cutting. Just injure him enough so that he is in pain. Through he didn die of Pangzi, he did die of drowning, as he couldn stand up inside the pool, not because it was deep, but because he could not stand with the lack of muscle in his legs.
”oh no, I wonder what happened here? ” he said sarcastically. ”this bastard must have been trying to make some snacks from the pool lotus and drowned. To think this ungrateful son of a bitch would cut his legs off with his knife. What a stupid child, no? ” he said as he dumped the knife into the pool with the childs now dead body.
As Pangzi expected, one of the two decided to abandon their now dead third and become a duo.
”I know right. To think he would try picking fathers favourite lotus to make a snack! ” replied the newly inaugurated youngest.
”what a smart kid. ” said Pang Pang. ”too bad you have a shorter lifespan that most. ”
Upon hearing that statement, the youngest clenched his fists and gritted his teeth and did nothing, as he was too weak (not in a physical sense) to even look at Pangzi in the eyes.
As Pangzi made his way out of the old house, of the corner of his eye, he saw the oldest hitting the youngest.
”traitor! Why… say… you… demon! ”
(its like that cause he is far away and can hear it right)
”AT LEAST IM NOT A COWARD, YOU PIECE OF SHIT! IM THE REASON YOURE STILL ALIVE! ” screamed back the newly inaugurated youngest.
Internal strife. What a fun yet destructive sight.
Honestly, the youngest had every right to say that. I would have killed the eldest had his greater mental counterpart not intervened. How could my fathers children not know such basic tactics? All he had to do was throw away a dead man to live longer.
The young Pangzi droned a little song unrecognizable by anyone as he went to the crowded market square. He sang his odd tune so quietly that none but he himself could hear. As he let himself get distracted by the hypnotic lyrics, he found himself in the middle of the bustling market, which turned dead silent as soon as he entered.
He went over to the nearby food vendor and asked for all the almonds they had.
”send it all to the Jia family, and tell them to pay out of the twentieth bastards account. If he doesn have enough, then the thirteenth. ”
”yes, young master. ” replied the food vendor.
As Pangzi left the scene, the entire marketplace suddenly burst into life. It suddenly seemed brighter and much more cheerful as well. It was an expected outcome, knowing Pangzis reputation, but he still could not help but be hurt.
He sang the same tune as he sort of jogged over to the abandoned vineyard. Originally, it was meant to be used for making wine, but after Pangzi started frequenting that area, the workers just stopped coming to work. Though no one dares to say it to his face, he knows that everyone calls it the Pangzi Yingxiang.
”Xiao Er, are you there? ” I asked carefully.
(Xiao meaning little is added to nicknames and stuff because small things are supposed to be cute and whatnot)
”have you finally fallen for my womanly charms? ” said a short airport who was posing in what was meant to be sexy pose. Unfortunately, Pangzi has no interest for lolis.
(airport being cutting board or flat chested)
”what charms do you have to speak of? If anything, you are lacking in all the departments I would like to see in women. ” he said curtly. ”I know you didn go to school, so let me tell you this: Xiao means little, shorty. ”
”son of a bitch. I dare you to say that again, fatty. ”
As if he bored of playing around, his face, yet again, drained itself of emotion.
”it was fun at first, but now its getting pretty repetitive and boring, so cut it out, Cike Er. Im here to see Cike Hao, and we all know that. If you feel like blocking my path, go greet my grandfather in hell, bitch. ”
”yes, young master. Cike Hao is nearby the eastern main pillar of the Jianbukecui. Im not sure if he is in a domain or not. ”
Passing by the trembling Cike Er, he walked over the valley which hid the Jianbukecui from outside eyes.
The Jianbukecui is a huge wall reaching up to hundreds of Yin. It was made to protect humans from the wastelands which take up most of the world. At first, humans tried fighting wastelands, but in the end, people decided to hide behind the walls and let the wasteland dwellers fight it out.
Each Jianbukecui (each empire has their own Jianbukecui) has a standard 50 Zhang thick circular shaped wall reaching what seem to be the sky. No one knows how much the circumference of the Jianbukecui is, but the Shensheng familys Jianbukecui is enough to fit over four billion people inside it fairly easily.
Other than the standard 50 Zhang thickness, it has four main pillars representing North, South, East and West. Between each main pillar will be approximately five thousand support pillars that are evenly spaced out.
The Jia family territory is on the eastern edge of the Shensheng Jianbukecui and covers around three thousand support pillars while taking up the entire eastern pillar.
I walked nearer to the towering beam which was impossibly high and looked around for Cike Hao.
”Hao. If you aren in a domain, it be best you come out~ ” said the young master unthreateningly.
”who do you want dead. ” came the voice of a cool seductive man that appeared behind him.
”my discarded rat. I want his tendons cut after he drinks some poison. ”
”thank you, Hao. ” he said despite knowing Hao was already gone.
”the Jianbukecui, eh? I wonder if I can make this oversized rock collapse one day? ”
”what did you just say, commoner?! ” came an unknown voice.
I turned around to see the all too familiar royal soldier uniform. They don seem to be escorting royalty, so I assume this squadron is here to survey the area before the royals arrive.
”do you not know who I am? ” asked Pangzi.
”what, are you supposed to be someone important? ” asked the squadrons captain as he whipped out a jade seal. ”see this? It means Im escorting the Shensheng family here to meet your young lord. ” gloated the captain and his four strong crew.
Oh? I guess Ive got a new toy to play with…
”well then, this servant shall excuse himself. ”
The guards found it odd that he emphasized the word servant, but they paid no heed. After all, he did excuse himself as a servant, so they assumed he was a servant under the Jia family.
(commander  > general  > captain  > squadron leader  > soldier)
The number shows the amount of one rank lower that the rank holds. Eg: one general has five hundred captains who have one hundred squads.
250,100,000 soldiers + 187,575,000 reserves. Anyone higher than the commander in rank is not in the infantry.
