Chapter 19: The Stereotypical Prince Saves the Princess Scene

Translator: Min
“Yo, looks like you have been quite well off in the last few days . ” A guy with a clean cut whistled
and stood there rascally . He was known as “Sir Tiger" and was a thug under the Hongyi Gang .
He trained in martial arts for six years . One time, he single-handedly defeated a group of five
gangsters which allowed him to receive special recognition from the big boss at Hongyi .
Although he was not a person of importance, he did have a bunch of followers . Rebellious
students that called him “big boss . ” He enjoyed being the center of attention .
He spent the majority of his time as a bouncer at Hongyi’s night club and occasionally collected
loans for his boss . It was an excellent lifestyle for him .
As unexciting as it was to collect money from a girl, especially when the girl considered calling
the cop, her attractiveness made up for the trouble . Thus, he decided to let the incident slide .
Besides, did she not know who she dealt with when she borrowed money from Hongyi in the
first place? A perverted smile emerged on Liu Hu’s face . His gang already surrounded the flower
shop . The customers who were there immediately left .
The busy flower shop was suddenly empty . The shop owner with a frightened look was
trembling . He was also afraid to call the cops as he didn’t want any more trouble . With this
many thugs here, there was no way to do business .
“Come out? Do you need me to send you a formal invitation?” Liu Hu blew a whistle and looked
at her as if she was a prey .
Xia Shuyu bit her lips . Her flawless face was covered by the gloom of terror . She noticed the plea
in the store owner's eyes . She sighed as she put the flower down quivering . She walked over
with fixated but tense steps .
“I can’t believe you are still working here . ” Lu Hu reached for her face . “Do you have the money
for me?”
But to his surprise, the resilient girl avoided his hand .
“I’ll repay the money while working . Please don’t bother me anymore . ” She took in a deep
breath and answered without any emotions .
“Work? With this? How long would we have to wait? Hehe . ” He didn’t seem angry when she
avoided his hand, but a grimness filled his eyes .
“What do you want?” With a stern face, Xiao Shiyu stared at the rascal . She was terrified as her
legs trembled . But the resiliency deep in her bones made her stand her ground .
[This girl is interesting . Even though she is scared to death, she is still giving me the attitude . ]
Liu Hu raised his eyebrows, and he pondered with a smile .
“Two options . Money, or you . ” He put up two fingers .
“I don’t have any money right now . ” Xia Shuyu tried to remain calm . “Then it’s a simple problem . We’ll take you . ” He reached out to shake as if the deal was already
made .
“Me?” Xia Shiyu hissed at the remark, “You guys are not afraid of getting accused of human
“Hahahahaha . ”

Everyone, including Liu Hu, laughed hysterically .
That made Xia Shiyu feel humiliated . She didn’t think it was funny at all, but she could not
deliver a comeback . She thought she could live a fulfilled life as an independent woman by
working hard . She would support herself, her parents and realize her value .
But the reality was harsh .
“No No No, that’s a waste . Particularly for a beauty like you . ” Finally finished laughing, Liu Hu
looked at the thugs behind him, “At least we need to let everyone get a taste of you for a few
years before selling you to someone as a wife . What do you guys think?”
“Hahaha, maybe we will even visit you to help you with your business . ”
“Why don’t we sell her to Sir Pi? That bastard loves wh*res . ”
“F*ck you . I like wh*res, but I never said I was going to marry one . ”
After hearing all the rude and perverted comments, blood almost seeped out of Xia Shiyu’s lips
because she bit it so hard . She wanted to cry; she wanted someone to save her right now . Even
in her most difficult time, this thought never crossed her mind .
Tears of humiliation filled her eyes, and she even thought of killing herself . If they take her
away, then it would be better off to die .
Liu Hu was experienced in debt collection . He knew what Xia Shuyu was thinking when he saw
her expression, and he signaled his thugs to be quiet .
“Fine . I know this is unfortunate for you, but this is the rule . You pay if you owe money . Don’t
worry . If you work for a couple of years in the Hongyi night club, you can leave once you pay
your debt off . No one would know anyways . Then, in the end, you can just leave the city and
marry someone nice . Just don’t borrow any more money you shouldn’t borrow in the first
place . ”
That was a tactical move . Sticks and carrots were stereotypical, but it was extremely useful . The
rude comments were probably part of the plan to set all of this up . Thugs are scariest when they
are knowledgeable and well managed .
Jiang Chen wanted to keep watching, but the crushing look of his previous boss made him abort
the idea . Although he hated her before, he didn’t want to see her breakdown .
[Fine, I will help her . ]
In the past he would be terrified if he met a bunch of thugs, but now .
“Hehe, how should I address you sir?”
Liu Hu paused momentarily . He didn’t even realize there was someone that passed him a
cigarette .

With teary eyes, Xia Shiyu looked at the man with pure disbelief . Her face had shock written all
over . Is it him that stood up for her? The guy she fired in a moment of rage? She felt a sense of
regret for her careless actions in the past, but she didn’t imagine her next encounter with him
would be in such a scenario .
[Why is he here? Why is he standing up for me? Shouldn’t he be watching this drama right now
as a bystander?]

Her face was completely stunned by everything that just happened . Regret, sympathy, sincerity,
and confusion?
“Liu Hu . ” Liu Hu was dumbfounded . He was shocked by what just happened . Who would dare to
talk with a gang when they were in the middle of something?
Cop? Liu Hu immediately rejected this idea . His boss has connections at the police department .
So, unless the incident made headlines, they would not be involved .
Retard? Liu Hu’s facial expression suddenly changed .
“What a coincidence . I just met a friend of mine here . ” Jiang Chen laughed . He then changed the
topic, “I heard the conversation . How much does she owe you?”
Liu Hu examined Jiang Chen with his eyes squinted . In his opinion, this guy was too calm and
collected .
His boss’s mission for him was to bring the girl back if possible . The interest on the loan was
nothing compared to the potential revenue she could generate at the nightclub . This girl’s
perfect look and the gorgeous figure would sell her as a top choice at the nightclub . That was
the cash generating business for the gang .
“Buddy, are you looking for trouble?” Liu Hu sneered as he reached for Jiang Chen . Xia Shiyu’s
heart almost jumped out of her throat as she nervously watched the guy that stood up for her .
“My clothes cost around ten thousand dollars . Can you buy me a new one if you rip it?” Jiang
Chen sighed as he clinched onto Liu Hu's hand . With his reflex stats of 28, it was not enough in
the danger-filled wasteland, but it was certainly sufficient for these thugs in the modern world .
Liu Hu felt as if both of his hands were clamped down . He couldn’t even move a single inch .
[F*ck, this guy must have trained in martial arts before . ]
He realized he messed with the wrong person . Although he wanted to backup, since all his
thugs were watching, the ruthless side of him came out as he flipped out the knife hidden in his
left hand . Then, he slashed at Jiang Chen’s head .
Jiang Chen slightly turned his head to avoid the slow moving knife . He then pushed Liu Hu
away .
“F*ck, you think you are tough? Guys beat him up!” The thug that was obviously connected to
Liu Hu saw the tide of the fight turn . He wanted to escalate the fight from one on one to a full
brawl .
Jiang Chen sighed . If he knew this conflict was tedious to resolve, he wouldn’t have worn
expensive clothing to a fight .
“Why don’t we go to the ally there? There’s monitoring here . ” Jiang Chen casually pointed to the
alley .

Liu Hu paused again . His reaction was abnormal to Liu Hu . He didn’t look the slightest bit
afraid, which made Liu Hu unsure . Since he already proposed it, it would be cowardly if he
didn’t agree . How would he maintain his reputation in front of his thugs?
“Hehe, what a brave guy . Please . ” Liu Hu fixed his collar as he signaled towards the alley .
[What a show-off] Jiang Chen didn’t imagine Liu Hu would have the audacity to go even if it
was a brawl . Jiang Chen stepped into the alley .
A sneer appeared on Liu Hu’s face as Jiang Chen followed into the alley . [Regardless of how
good your martial art is, there is no way you would beat ten people . Do you think you are
He left the most useless thug to keep an eye on Xia Shiyu . The rest of the thugs followed him
into the alley .
Worried about Jiang Chen’s safety, she anxious thought about possible solutions . She
considered calling the cop, but the thug was looking at her fiercely . She glanced over at the
store owner that always took care of her before, but he just pretended he didn’t see anything .
She had the urge to cry with a mixture of emotions . Not because she was afraid, but because she
felt helpless .
She didn’t rely on anyone in the past ten years . The weariness caused by her resilience
overwhelmed her by her helplessness .
“Beat him up…” Just as he opened his mouth, Liu Hu’s rascal expression froze .
A pistol was pointed at his forehead .
“There’s no monitoring here . ” Jiang Chen shrugged . He didn’t expect the pistol that Yao Yao
picked up would be useful . He didn’t mind teaching these thugs a lesson with his fist if it was
not because of his clothing .
“Fake… It's fake right?” Sweat rolled down Liu Hu’s forehead . He forced a smile and stared at
Jiang Chen . He wanted to look for the uncertainty, which would give him courage .
Jiang Chen moved the gun and pointed elsewhere .
The explosion of the bullet struck like thunder beside Liu Hu’s ear . In such a close range, it
almost popped his eardrum .
“Ahhhhhhh…” A thug covered his leg as he fell to the ground . His face was pale and twisted due
to the unbearable amount of pain . Everyone just stood there terrified; they didn’t dare to help
the guy .
The bullet penetrated through the thug’s leg and pierced into the concrete ground . The poor
bastard that got shot was the thug that wanted to fight outside . He should have thought about
this when he tried to escalate the whole thing .
It was dead silent . Only the lunatics and the cops had guns . His boss once told him that . He
never touched a gun before, but he memorized it by heart .
Regardless of which type, they were all extremely dangerous .

were many gangs in Wang Hai city . If Liu Hu accidently offended a person of power,
nobody would say a thing if he died .
“B… Boss, there is always a solution . No need to bring a gun into the conversation . ”
Jiang Chen pressed the burning barrel against his forehead . He resisted the pain as he was too
terrified to move . The skin on his forehead was probably burned, but he couldn't say a word .
“I tried to come up with a solution, but you always interrupted me . ” Jiang Chen made a
harmless expression .
[This guy must be crazy!]
Liu Hu swallowed his fear . He kept laughing to alleviate the intensity of the situation .
“Ok, I don’t have all day for you . ” Jiang Chen tapped Liu Hu’s head with the gun . Liu Hu noticed
that Jiang Chen didn’t close the safety . He was drenched in cold sweat . It was the first time in
his life that he felt so terrified .
“Do we have an agreement?”
“Ye…Yes . ” Liu Hu quivered as he took out the agreement .
“What’s your bank account number?”
“Hmm?” Liu Hu was confused as to what Jiang Chen meant .
“I’ll repay the money . Are you dumb or what . ” Jiang Chen suddenly raised his voice which made
Liu Hu heart pound even faster .
“Repay the money?” In a trembling voice, he asked . He thought he heard it wrong .
“It’s as if you sold me the debt . Do you understand what that means? What’s in your brain? Do I
look like the type who wouldn’t pay?” Jiang Chen stuffed the gun into his pocket .
“No, nope . ” There was no way Liu Hu would answer yes .
Ripping the debt would not be a solution as Hongyi Gang would not easily let this go . Jiang
Chen was not afraid . Xia Shuyu, on the other hand, would be in danger .
Jiang Chen had things to take care of in the apocalypse . He didn’t have enough time to look
after Xia Shuyu . He only helped because he was a good person with no intention of putting any
more effort into this . His time was quite valuable as he was planning a trip to a famous tourist
city Sanya .
Changing the ownership of debt was the best solution Jiang Chen came up with . She could repay
him while maintaining her dignity .
He didn’t care about the money, but he did not want to just write the debt off for her . The highinterest
loan was illegal but repaying the principal amount was reasonable . If he didn’t have the
opportunity to oppress his previous manager with the terrible attitude, it would be a waste of a
beautiful chance .
Also, Jiang Chen had previous considerations as well .
Liu Hu happily accepted the payment as he furiously bowed to Jiang Chen . After Jiang Chen
repaid the 410,000 dollars, he immediately left while hustling the injured thug . There was no
way he would dare to ask for interest . He was sure his boss would not blame him since the other
person had a gun . Jiang Chen was in good faith to repay the principle amount .

They rushed out of the alley without daring to ask Jiang Chen’s name .
Jiang Chen scorned at the direction Lu Hui left as he threw the gun into the storage dimension .
He touched his face and stepped out of the alley .
Hmm? Where did the blood come from?
