LGS – Chapter 1447 – Group Beating
That shout drowned out all the ruckus on the drilling grounds, and it was filled with a sense of pride.
Everyone was taken aback. Opposing the crawling general Li Qingshan had already become the common view in the army, so just where did this puny soldier come from to say something so controversial.
Li Qingshan wore the metal helmet that covered half of his face. That was the equipment that every soldier of the lowest level possessed. No one had imagined that a mighty general would actually disguise himself as a mere soldier and cheer himself on publicly.
This was quite close to the Xuanwu hall. Chao Tianjiao’s ears were sharp, so she arrived at the window and took a look. She recognised Li Qingshan in a single glance and sighed while shaking her head. “This kid is far too unreliable.”
Just earlier, she thought he had an extraordinary breadth of mind. Now, he had personally gone up to challenge them. That was basically as petty as he could be. However, for some reason, she also felt like that was simply how he was supposed to behave. Her lips curled into a smile, and she began to watch with brimming interest.
A series of furious curses erupted from below the ring, “Get down here! Get down here!”
Li Qingshan glanced around arrogantly and raised his thumb before giving them a thumbs-down. “Trash.”
He immediately angered all of the soldiers. Some of them reached for the nearest rock and threw it at him. The ones that had not thrown any had only done so because they were unable to find any rocks near them.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
For a moment, the air became filled with rocks that rained down on the ring. Li Qingshan ducked and weaved. He seemed very sluggish, but he happened to dodge all of the rocks.
This was a drilling ground after all, so the soldiers could not find any more rocks to throw very soon, while the ring was covered in rocks.
Li Qingshan lifted up a great pile and called out, “Here, take it back!”
He threw them one by one. Even when he had not used much strength, the people below were all squeezed together in such a tight spot, so how could they dodge? For a moment, the air was filled with a series of painful cries.”
“Be careful!” All of you, move out of my way! Ouch! My head!” “Fucking hell, who stepped on my foot?”
Among the several thousand people below the ring, not a lot of them had actually been pelted by rocks, but in order to dodge, they pushed and shoved at each other, which led to even greater chaos. They were reduced to a confused disorder.
“I haven’t even used any strength, and you’ve collapsed!”
Li Qingshan stood on the ring and laughed aloud. Everyone glared at him and cursed away furiously. The soldiers below were ready to have a go, to come up and beat him up, but they all looked at the tower to the side of the drilling grounds.
The colonel responsible for overwatching the competition stood up and pointed at Li Qingshan. He said fiercely, “Which squad and brigade do you belong to? How dare you make trouble on the drilling grounds. Are you aware that it is a crime punishable by death?”
In Black Cloud city, the ones beneath the two captains were the generals. They were all positions held by inner disciples of the Myriad sect, commanding the various battalions. After them were the commandants that led the various regiments, posts all held by formal disciples. They were the high-ranking members of the army, forming its core.
After them came the colonels, lieutenants, squadron leaders, ten-man squad leaders, and five-man squad leaders.
Colonels were the leaders among the middle-ranking officers. They were as close to the high-ranking officers as they could get, and it was a position only held by Golden Core cultivators that had undergone the second heavenly tribulation. As a result, ranging from generals to colonels, they were all known as important officers of the army. They possessed great status.
This colonel was obviously no exception either. He was a Golden Core cultivator. In the Myriad sect, he was merely a reader. He could not even be considered as a proper disciple, but in the army, he was a significant figure whose orders were paramount. Normally, a mere glare from him was enough for rowdy soldiers to shiver and dodge his gaze. With him around, no matter how agitated the soldiers became, they still did not dare to charge up the ring.
However, Li Qingshan did not care about that at all. He placed his hand on his hips and lifted his head. “And which squad and brigade do you belong to? What’s your name? How dare you talk to me like that. Are you aware that it is a crime punishable by death?”
He used the great mocking technique successfully once more; it was highly effective.

The colonel flew into a rage. “Take him down!”
A burly soldier immediately charged up the ring. He was clad in armour and equipped with weapons, clearly one of the competitors. Since he could make it so far, he could be considered as a brave warrior in the army. “I am from the Scorching Fire army, the Scarlet Flame regiment, Zhang…”
“Get out of here!” Li Qingshan picked him.
It led to another series of curses from below the ring, erupting with remarks like “despicable scoundrel”, “sneaky bastard”, “that’s a surprise attack”, and so on.
“You bunch of trash, listen up!” Li Qingshan clasped his fist and assumed a pose of absolute reverence. “Great general Li Qingshan is mighty and domineering, loyal and righteous, handsome and graceful. He only ever wins others over by virtue…”
With that, he praised himself to the ends of the earth, like he was the greatest person in the world, leaving no aspect untouched.
As she listened to it, Chao Tianjiao furrowed her brows, grinned and ground her teeth… before bursting into laughter in the end.
The soldiers were all furious from that. Originally, they still thought Li Qingshan was not that bad, but now, they were certain about it.
After praising himself, Li Qingshan swung his fist. “If anyone is still unconvinced, get up here, and I’ll beat you until you’re convinced.”
The overseeing colonel’s forehead bulged with veins. He was unable to stand this anymore. “Fucking hell, beat him up!”
Everyone answered the order and surged towards Li Qingshan as a black mass like the tide; they burned with rage.
“Hehe, come at me!”
Li Qingshan punched and kicked, knocking them down as they came, no matter how many of them there were.
As soon as the soldiers reached five steps from him, they were sent flying, soaring over everyone’s heads and returning to the tide of people.
Even with his feeble state, Li Qingshan could not be touched by these soldiers. In his eyes, they all just seemed like they were stepping forward for him to beat up. In the beginning, he still had to consider what moves to take, like how he should throw his punch and where he should direct his kick, but towards the end, he simply whirled his hands and feet blindly and went at it.
With the innate ability, the Strength of the Earth, as well as his proactive efforts to hold back, he had come to vent, not to kill. As a result, he did not have to worry about overexerting himself. He just did whatever that satisfied him.
The colonel gradually realised that something was amiss. This puny soldier was a little too strong. In a short while, he had already sent several hundred people flying, and he was still brimming with energy without any signs of weakness. On top of that, none of the people he sent flying died or became heavily injured. Some of them even climbed up and charged towards the ring again. Clearly, he was holding back.
Even a Golden Core cultivator like him could not last against an encirclement of so many soldiers if he was empty-handed and unable to fly or kill, let alone fend them off with such ease.
These soldiers were not ordinary mountain bandits, but experienced soldiers. They were far stronger than regular Qi Practitioners and possessed discipline. They knew how to organise themselves and work together to advance and retreat. Many of them were already using their weapons. They just had not assumed any military formations. Otherwise, even if a Golden Core cultivator became caught in it, they would be sliced to pieces, unable to escape.
A lieutenant asked softly, “Colonel, do you think he’s Li-”
“Shh, report this to the captain immediately.” The colonel began having second thoughts. If it really was that bastard, he would be far more than what a measly colonel like him could handle. If he decided to beat him up as well, there would be nothing he could say.
“Who do I report to?”
There were many people in the drilling grounds who considered this. These soldiers were only weak in strength, not fools. Very soon, many of them guessed Li Qingshan’s identity. The disturbance here was far too great, so it had alarmed the entire city a long time ago. People rushed about and informed each other.
“The crawling general is beating up people!”
