The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 444
Chapter 444: Ruffian Regiment
No matter how Fang Lin looked at it, the people in front of him are no soldiers at all.
They all wore faded, unkempt military clothing that does not fit the place that they are in.
Not only that, but the facilities that Fang Lin could see were also not that good.
The weapons are old and chipped, and the people themselves looked like they are up to no good.
There was none of these people that looked like a decent soldier, they looked closer to a gang of ruffians or bandits!
The soldier who brought in Fang Lin could see Fang Lin’s twitching face. Fang Lin then let out a sigh as he faced the soldier who ‘recruited’ him as he asked him,
“Who the hell are these guys?”
Because Fang Lin did not bother to lower his voice, everyone in the barracks heard what he said.
“Hey, young lad…” Someone from the ruddy crowd stood up, looking at Fang Lin quite maliciously.
His body was covered in tattoos, and his spiky hair did not help on his appearance.
This tattooed man cracked his knuckles as he continued talking.
“Do you know that rookie soldiers must respect the older soldiers? Seems like you do not know that rule! Well, since you are a newbie, I will forgive you. But remember, the next time you slip up, we will start to beat you up!”
Everyone in the barracks all looked at Fang Lin as they cracked their knuckles simultaneously.
“These people really are from the Dragon Emperor Kingdom…” Fang Lin thought wryly to himself. “No wonder they like to fight…”
According to his talks with the Crown Prince earlier, Fang Lin realized that while the Royalty were the ones that receive the most blessing from the Heirlooms, the commoner residents also receive extremely miniscule blessings.
For example, the commoners of the Dragon Emperor Kingdom will somehow have a stronger body than normal. Of course, these bodies will still be weaker compared to the Royalty of the Dragon Emperor Kingdom, but a boost is still a boost.
The same case happens too at the commoners of the other 2 Kingdoms.
It was also said that sometimes, there are commoners born with too much blessing, that their power becomes comparable to Royalty.
When that happens, the Royalty of the said Kingdom will turn that commoner into a noble.
Of course Fang Lin is not interested on those things. What he was more interested in is on how strong the bodies of the soldiers in front of him.
Since they seem to be extremely hot-headed right now, then Fang Lin will just fan the flames!
“You call yourself soldiers?” Fang Lin mockingly said as he looked around him. “Look around you! All I see are a bunch of washed-up people!”
“You!” Almost all of the soldiers in the barracks stood up angrily as their murderous gazes bore down on Fang Lin.
Of course Fang Lin responded back in kind, giving them a cheeky and smug smile.
The soldier who brought Fang Lin gave him a smile as he said,
“Young Lad, what you actually said was true. This regiment right here are composed of those who violated military rules or those who offended the higher-ups. So calling them washed-up people seems appropriate…”
“Oh… But then why did you bring me here?” Fang Lin asked as he tilted his head. “I only want to enlist as a soldier and I have not violated any rules, so why am I being brought here?”
“Well…” The soldier scratched his head as he struggled to find the right answer.
With his deductive skills, Fang Lin can somehow already make sense of the reason.
He gave the soldier a reassuring look as he said,
“Let me guess, when you talked to Princess Elissa earlier, she secretly instructed you to bring me here, right?”
“Well, that’s the gist of it…” The soldier said as he let out an uncomfortable laugh. “Sigh, I really wanted to recommend you to a good regiment, but since the Princess told me to put you here, then I have no choice but to do that…”
“I understand.” Fang Lin said as he tried to not show his irritation. “So I take it that you are not the leader of this Regiment then?”
“There is no leader for the Ruffian Regiment.” The soldier said as he turned his back on Fang Lin. “This regiment is the place where the most useless and heinous soldiers are placed in. You can say that being in this regiment is a punishment in itself. Because of that and the innate hostility between the soldiers of this regiment, no suitable leader has sprung out to lead them.”
Fang Lin gave a nod after hearing this, showing that he understood this reason. However, that still could not shake off something that he had been thinking about earlier.
“Wait, so what does this regiment do?” Fang Lin asked to the soldier directly, ignoring the heated gazes being thrown at him. “If this regiment is like a punishment in itself, then what are its members are supposed to do?”
“Oh, it’s actually just simple.” The solider replied as he gave Fang Lin a sympathetic gaze. “All the dirty and unwanted jobs will be solely done by the Ruffian Regiment, while the rest of the military does the decent jobs.”
“Oh.” Fang Lin just let out this reply as he made a gesture of shooing the soldier away. “You can leave me now. Let me… just deal with my problems by my own now.”
Fang Lin’s voice sounded neutral, not showing his real emotions to the soldier. Of course the soldier knew that Fang Lin was extremely angry, and he was just extremely good at hiding it.
“Okay, its goodbye then.” The soldier did not dare to stay any longer, as he could feel the atmosphere turning more and more hostile. He immediately left the area, not even attempting to look back.
While he was going away, the solider muttered to himself,
“I wish you luck, young lad.”
At the instant that the soldier left, Fang Lin gave a challenging smile to the soldiers of the Ruffian Regiment as he said,
“Since you are all itching for a fight, then I will give you all a fight!”
Sounds of chaos then ensued later, as the whole barracks of the Ruffian Regiment became a battlefield.
“Big brother, I am scared….” Princess Elissa, the one who Fang Lin met earlier, was currently inside a luxurious-looking building right at the middle of the military encampment.
The insides of this building were made up of expensive materials, showing that this place was reserved for VIPs.
Princess Elissa was currently lounging on the sofa, which showed her glorious appearance.
Because of the blessing of the Dragon Emperor Armor, Princess Elissa has a frightening level of physical strength. But her body does not reflect that power.
Princess Elissa was a tall lady, and her long, slender legs will certainly catch the attention of any male who sees it.
Her hourglass figure was perfect, and her slim waist and voluptuous bosom further enhances her physical appeal.
Her face has all the features of a beautiful warrior. Luscious lips, stern eyes and an imposing aura could be seen by anyone looking at her face.
Her long, black hair was draped across her body, upping her sensual appeal to the peak.
All in all, Princess Elissa looks like a seductive warrior who will not hesitate to cut down any of her opponents!
And right now, this princess was looking quite pale as she listened to the person talking in front of her.
The person in front of Princess Elissa was a hulking male whose whole body looked extremely ripped.
Even his clothes, which already looked big, was swelling from the sheer volume of his body.
His face however, could not be seen as he wore a mask which hid his face.
This person immediately responded to what Princess Elissa said earlier as he said,
“Oh, little sis, do not worry about us. The only reason that the Massacre Hero killed the Fallen Heart Kingdom Royalty was because they forced her to marry their Crown Prince. Of course the Massacere Hero will be offended by that. As for the Golden River Kingdom, our spies said that their Hero left the Golden River Kingdom, which forced their Royalty to confront the Massacre Hero by themselves…”
The masked person then cricked his neck as he continued on stamping the documents below him.
“The Massacre Hero has a reason to kill the Royalty of the Fallen Heart Kingdom, while the Hero of the Golden River Kingdom abandoned them. As for us, we did not do anything to offend the Massacre Hero, and our Hero did not leave the Dragon Emperor Kingdom. I also heard that our Hero will try to ally with the Massacre Hero… So technically speaking, we are safe now, but just to be sure, I will not let you go to the Dragon Emperor Kingdom tonight.”
“Ok…” Princess Elissa said as she let out a slight pout. “But I want to see our Hero! I heard that he was handsome, and that he looked extremely dashing in the Dragon Emperor Armor… Hehehe, he must be a real hottie!”
The masked person tried to ignore Princess Elissa drooling as he said,
“I also want to meet that guy! I want to test my strength compared to his!”
“Big brother…” Princess Elissa gave the masked person a deadpan look as she said,
“I know that you are the strongest out of all of us in the Dragon Emperor Kingdom… But out Hero is wearing the Dragon Emperor Armor! I think that even you will not stand a chance against him!”
“But I still want to try…” The masked person longingly said as he looked at Princess Elissa.
The masked person then steered away from the topic of the Heroes as he said,
“Anyway, I saw you coming in here with a grumpy look. Did you see anything that pissed you off earlier?”
Princess Elissa scrunched her face in anger as she said,
“There was this pesky guy who blocked my carriage earlier! And then he asked me on how to enlist as a soldier! Argh! The nerve of him to ask a princess with that question!”
“So what did you do to him then?” The masked person asked as he shook his head at the Princess’ antics.
“Oh, I just have one of your soldiers put that guy on the Ruffian Regiment.” Princess Elissa replied with traces of mischievousness in her features. “Hehehe, let us see how long that pesky guy will last there!”
“You are so bad, little sis.” The masked person said as he let out a sigh. “When can you stop doing things like these? You are already 18, for Emperor’s sake!”
The princess just let out a giggle in reply, looking unapologetic.
Suddenly, they heard rapid knocks on the door.
The masked person gave the permission to enter, and the door swung open as a pale-looking soldier rushed into the room.
This soldier was the same soldier that brought Fang Lin to the Ruffian Regiment earlier. His breath was harried, and he looked like he run quite quickly just to get here.
“Great General, I have a bad news to report!” The solider said as he gave the masked person a salute.
“What is that bad news huh? I just had enough of them today.” The masked person sighed as he waved his hands. “Go on, say it now.”
The soldier, upon receiving the approval to speak, did not mince his words as he said,
“There has been a great ruckus in the Ruffian Regiment, and I fear that if we do not do anything to stop it right now, the whole military will be placed in jeopardy!”
