There was a sound, and Peng Tian Shou rolled down from the table, and the table flipped over as well. A few people rushed forward, but were all thrown out by the scruff of their necks by Xiao Yu'er. The waiter was crying out in alarm at the side, busy collecting the plates and bowls, and for a moment, the restaurant was in chaos. However, once the gathered heroes saw Xiao Yu'er's martial arts, none of them really dared to go over for a fight.
Only now did Jiang Bie He ask with a furrowed brow, "Brother Hua, looking at this, how do you think it should be settled?"
Xiao Yu'er cried in alarm, "You... You said you would never kill me. How can you not keep your words."
Mr Copper replied, "Because you are talking a lot of nonsense, it's hateful."
"Since when was I talking nonsense?"
Mr Copper said, "Whether your Mother is good or bad, pretty or ugly, you have never seen her before, and yet you are boasting about her, is it not talking nonsense then!"
Xiao Yu'er asked, "You... how did you know I have never seen my Mother before?"
Mr Copper actually did not speak. Xiao Yu'er continued with a slight smile, "He had to kill me with his own hands, but cannot tell me the reason, I had already thought this is a little strange, now it is getting stranger." Mr Copper answered, "Although you do not hate him, but he hates you, so he wants to kill you, what's so strange about that?"
Xiao Yu'er laughed, "Do you think he really hates me?"
Yan Nan Tian continued, "If you had lied, you would surely have felt guilt, a guilty person would never be able to execute such ferocious moves!"
Hua Wu Que was silent for a moment, and looking heavenward, laughed, "Don't you feel that it's a little too late to believe me now?"
Xiao Yu'er said, "This restaurant is called San He Place, it's Jiang Zhe dishes (Jiang Su and Zhe Jiang Provinces), it can't do... hmm, there's a restaurant Zhen Bei Ping here, must be Northern food, can't do as well."
Mr Copper fumed, "Why can't it do? Can't you just make do with it?"
Xiao Yu'er replied with a straight face, "No, a person can let his friends down, but he must never, never let his own stomach down, because friends will run away when you are having bad luck, but the stomach will stay with you for life."
Mr Copper stared at him angrily, before slowly commenting after a moment, "Everyone in the world fears me, you... why are you not afraid?"
Amidst the laughter, Yan Nan Tian and Hua Wu Que could be seen walking out with arms over each other's shoulder, and with a jump and a flash of a shadow, they disappeared into the dark night. Where are they going? To look for Jiang Xiao Yu? The three of them should be enemies, but is it that they seem to be on the same side now.
There was a soft sound coming from outside the door. Xiao Yu'er hurriedly lay on the bed, and a solemn girl dressed in purple came in with a woman dressed in green. Tie Ping Gu stood there, not even looking at her.
That girl in purple walked to her and said coldly, "Your sister is dead." Tie Ping Gu also replied icily, "I know."
The girl in purple asked, "Are you sad?"
Tie Ping Gu responded, "If I am sad, are you happy?"
Xiao Yu'er laughed, "Not only do I know them, to tell you the truth, I grew up with them."
Tie Ping Gu was again startled, and asked, "You... do you know where they are now?"
Xiao Yu'er replied, "I'm afraid they're in the vicinity of Turtle Hill."
He suddenly paused, and asked with a laugh, "Why are you asking in so much detail?"
