and this is the end of Chapter - 11...
Shi Potian said: “Elder brothers, is it really important to go now? Eldest brother just said that once we are sworn brothers, we share sorrow and happiness and I’ll be fortunate to share. In any case, it’s fine with me, Is it fine if I too go along with you two elder brothers?”
As soon as that fat person heard it he smiled and said: “we are not going for a dinner and it’s no matter of amusement; so you need not to go.” He said with arrogance.
Shi Potian has got friends for the first time in his life, he never had a friend, today when he met these two and became sworn brothers, he was extremely pleased and didn’t want them to depart.
He said: “I’ll accompany the two elder brothers to whichever road they follow. I don’t know when I will see you both brothers again and whether I will get the opportunity to eat meat and drink wine again with you two.”
That thin person Li Si kept the gloomy face and completely ignored Shi Potian however that fat person Zhang San was more open minded, he pulled him aside and said: “brother, you said that your master had given you this name Shi Yidao so what is your real name. Now that we are sworn brothers we shouldn’t have any secret between us?”
As soon as Shi Potian heard it he gave an awkward smile and said: “I’m not hiding the truth from elder brother but actually my real name is too coarse and not that god to listen. My mother used to call me bastard.”
Zhang San laughed and said: “bastard, bastard…this name is really strange.”
Then Zhang San and Li Si started to move, although it looked that they were walking normally but their speed was really swift and with in a moment they used their lightness martial art and looked like a blur passing through the trees.
In a moment Shi Potian fell behind about tens of feet from both of them, he too leapt hurriedly and pursued them. After some time he caught them and as only at about three paces from those two.
Li Si and Zhang San were eager to get rid of this dumb kid, so they used their lightness martial-art; however Shi Potian was still following them closely.
They only heard Shi Potian saying: “Elder brothers are really good, you two can effortlessly walk so quickly and here I’m running desperately still somehow only managed to keep the pace.”
Speaking of posture with which they were walking, there was a great difference. Zhang San and Li Si were walking naturally and in a graceful manner on the other hand Shi Potian was actually running in strides, both his arms crazily moving like pendulum, his body bent like a bow as though he was running for his life.
When these people heard him running after them happily and still talking with no ill intension, hey can’t help but to admire his unyielding spirit.
Shi Potian saw these two people moving along the same road he came and they were going towards the same fishing village where ‘Iron fork sect’ people were hiding.
As they went near to that place he said loudly: “elder brothers, in front of us on this road is a very dangerous place and could be disastrous. If we change our way than we can avoid losing out life.”
Li Si and Zhang San both paused and tuned around and asked together: “how do you know this is a dangerous place?”
Shi Potian also paused, said: “In front of us is the ‘red willow’ harbor and a fishing village. Many rivers and lakes people who want to avoid their pursuers come here and hide. If they saw us three people then they might attack and kill us.”
Li Si gazed him coldly and said: “how do you know?”
Shi Potian told them how he entered the ship full of corpse, how he heard the’ Iron fork sect’ people hiding in bilge and briefly about their discussion.
Li Si said: “These people are hiding in the fishing village themselves from the ‘command of reward and punishment’, what can they do to us? Your fear is totally unwanted and irrelevant.
Shi Potian said: “No, no! These people are really ferocious and often kill people. They fear that someone will divulge their secret and have even killed people on their own side. You look, these body bloodstain, it is from the two people they have from their own sect, just look at the blood drop on my clothing, I hid under the deck in the bilge at that time, and even I didn’t dared to move.”
Li Si said: “you are already afraid, you are with us…you shouldn’t be afraid!”
Shi Potian said: “Elder brothers please do not go there; this ......This ...... is not joke.”
Li Si turned and Zhang San turned around and lead the way without consulting with each other and thought: “This kid has such an immense internal energy but not only is his martial-arts ordinary but he is also really timid like mouse”.
They started moving counting ten feet at a time. Shi Potian took half steps but still followed them closely.
Zhang San said: “you are afraid that ‘Iron fork sect’ people might kill so what are you doing now, following us closely?”
Shi Potian said: “have we not taken an oath? We have to share sorrow and happiness. If you two elder brothers have to go surely, then we will die on the same month, same date, in the same year with you. Once a man real man had said the words, he has no alternative but to keep a promise.”
Li Si said gloomily: “heh…heh, the ‘Iron fork sect’ has several dozens men there, even if all of them stab you once; you will become a big hedgehog, you are not afraid?”
Shi Potian remembered how he heard on the ship the miserable cry of people killed by ‘Iron fork sect’, at this moment he felt afraid. At present in that small fishing village at least 100-200 people were hiding, even though the martial-arts of both elder brothers is very good still surely they will be overwhelmed by sheer number.
Li Si saw his face changing its color, he sneered and said: “we seek our death voluntarily; we don’t need anyone to accompany us to death. Little brother, you go home. If this time we don’t die then we will meet ten years later.”
Shi Potian waved his hand saying: “you elder brothers should take as many helpers as you can. We are small in numbers and at the critical situation if we can escape and save our lives than we should.”
Li Si frowned and said: “hit and then run away, what kind of a real man does that? How can we disgrace ourselves?”
Shi Potian said: “good, then I too won’t run away.”
Zhang San and Li Si were not able to get rid of him, they looked at each smiled and thought in their: “This dumb kid actually very loyal, even agreed to go with us in such dangerous situation.
He is by far more heroic than all the other so called heroes of the martial arts world.”
