Kingdom’s Bloodline - Chapter 608
Chapter 600 The Greatest Knight (Part 2)
Seeing mother walking away, Mertesa put out a breath and fell to the ground.
莱约克 看着贝丝 消失的方向，表情复杂：
Layork looks at the direction in which Beth disappears, with a complicated expression:
“In the past few years, you and Mother Beth have lived here?”
Mertesa disdains coldly snorted.
莱约克 皱眉：“你知道，莫里斯 老大可以帮……”
Layork frowned: “You know, Morris boss can help…”
“This is what mother means!”
Mertesa interrupted him unceremoniously: “She said that brother will change, getting bigger and bigger, and getting messier, she doesn’t want to stay anymore.”
“Like this, we may not live well.”
“But we can survive.”
He stood up straight and stared at Layork, jealous and hated:
“Not like you.”
Layork was silent for a while:
“I remember, you followed Rhoda back then.”
Mertesa laughed, and his laughter was full of resentment.
“当然！罗达 ！铁心 罗达 ！”
“Of course! Rhoda! Iron Heart Rhoda!”
“But hey, look at me,” Mertesa turned around laboriously, showing his broken arm, unwilling:
“He doesn’t need waste.”
“And you think that after all these years, apart from big darlings like you, Cone and Thunder Axe, how many of us called ’13 Generals’ are still alive? How many?”
Layork did not respond to his question, but looked deeply at Mertesa’s severed arm.
“Count your days, The Silent killer,” Mertesa coldly snorted shook his head:
“It’s not long anyway.”
The two old acquaintances of Brother’s will face each other silently, speechless for a while.
Thales Shen Sheng stepped forward:
“What happened to the abandoned houses in recent years?”
Mertesa glanced at Thales.
“What kind of battle is this,” the man looked at Layork disdainfully:
“Who are these three? Your new lover?”
Layork complexion turned cold, and his arm touched the handle of the knife again.
But Thales coughed.
“Look, Mertesa, people are watching us.”
Prince smiled, and the curious faces around moved towards motioned.
“So, the longer you stay with us, the more people who snatch your pot—the sixth house, right—will be more curious about what we talked to you, or…”
“How much did you give away?”
Mertesa face changed:
Mertesa hates and is authentic:
“You must be the kid under Morris’s hands, cunning like him.”
But Thales didn’t care, just staring at him quietly.
“Now, do you want to answer the question?”
“What happened to the abandoned house?”
Mertesa snorted twice and looked at Layork and the other two big men. Then he spoke unconvincingly:
“If you remember, Layork, six years ago, the day of the One Night War–“
Speaking of this, Mertesa glanced at his broken arm, fiercely yelled:
No one else said anything.
“In short, when we hacked people on Red Square Street that day, something happened to the abandoned house.”
“Rhoda’s son takes care of this place, but the waste drank too much, killing a lot of beggars, and the rest ran away…”
Drinking too much, killing a lot of beggars…
Thales listened to this story quietly, expressionless.
It seems that it is the story of someone else’s family.
Layork squinted his eyes:
“I remember the trash, and I remember it.”
Mertesa nodded, unhappy:
“Some people say it was a plot by the Blood Bottle Gang, and the waste was finally killed by a few beggars…”
Thales unconsciously raised his hand and pressed the scar on his chest.
“但最糟糕的是，那家伙的老子是我前老大——为了乞儿的事儿，罗达 把落日酒吧 给砸了，听说，他还把跟他儿子一起管废屋的副手给活剐了下酒。”
“But the worst thing is that the guy’s Lao Tzu is my ex-boss — Rhoda smashed the Sunset Bar for the sake of begging children. I heard that he also took charge of the abandoned house with his son. I have a drink for alive.”
“I know Rhoda-trust me, this is indeed what he can do.”
Layork is quiet:
“我知道，莫里斯 老大找‘铁心 ’谈过，他们解决了这事儿。”
“I know that the boss of Morris talked to ‘Iron Heart’ and they resolved this matter.”
Mertesa disdains and babbles:
“Resolve a fart.”
He looked at Layork unhappy:
“When this happened, who in Brother’s club would dare to take care of the mess of the abandoned house?”
Mertesa looked back at the homeless people around:
“There is a precedent. If something happens to a beggar, it is to slap Morris in the face, he must ask you to settle the account;”
“Even if the beggar takes care of it, it is even worse–Rhoda is thinking about his son. If you know that you are in charge of the beggar, you will definitely see it not pleasing to your eyes;”
“Maybe, there will be a few restless people out of the beggars, like Quide, and wipe your throat while you are drunk…”
Mertesa smiled sarcastically, quite a bit of have no desire to improve:
“If this is the case, those who are still willing to come to the abandoned house are not only the old, the weak, the sick and the disabled!”
“Mertesar,” Layork hesitated for a moment:
Mertesar snorted, his tone full of pain and disdain:
“Do you know what is more interesting? Rhoda always thinks that the murderer who killed his son was not caught, so let me stay here, waiting for the beggar to come back walking right into a trap ——Look, there are many reasons Full, a good excuse to throw away garbage!”
In the last sentence, he almost shouted out roar.
walking right into a trap.
Thales subconsciously lifts the head and revisit Mertesa.
But Mertesa didn’t care what his words had to do with the person in front of him, he just laughed at himself:
“You see, people like us… Hey, I’ll be a fool, open the door at dawn and lock the door at night, and when they come and go, the beggars gradually become lazy and run a lot. Even the street business is out of oil and water.”
Mertesa bored and authentic:
“New thugs are even more reluctant to come-Red Square Street has just been taken, who doesn’t want to go there to enjoy the blessing?”
Kohen, who has been listening carefully, can’t help it anymore, he takes a step forward:
“So what about the beggars in abandoned houses? Are fewer?”
Mertesa looked at Kohen’s standard army stance warily:
“Which one are you?”
Kohen is in a hurry: “I–“
“兄弟会里的新人，”泰尔斯 面不改色地把科恩 向后推：
“The newcomer in the brother club,” Thales face doesn’t change and pushes Kohen back:
“Retired from the army-then?”
Mertesa looked at Kohen suspiciously.
“Brother will really grow in and out,” he hummed softly:
“In the past, the soldiers who served in the service were only willing to go to the Blood Bottle Gang.”
“Mertesar.” Layork reminded in a deep voice.
Mertesa waved uncomfortably.
“After that, I don’t know what’s going on, the city hall is eyeing this.”
此言一出，无论莱约克 还是泰尔斯 、科恩 ，三人齐齐一愣：
As soon as this statement came out, whether Layork, Thales, or Kohen, the three of them all were taken aback:
“Yes, I don’t know what’s going on,” Mertesa is listless:
“Every once in a while, the official team grandiose, from green leather, blue leather to steel leather, will come to the abandoned houses to make surprise attacks, in the name of combating human trafficking and banning child labor gangs.”
“At the most exaggerated time, the beggars in abandoned houses are evacuated once a week to avoid inspections. That is called a mess, and even business in other places is affected.”
Kohen’s eyes slowly changed, he scratched his head:
“Oh, I remember, there were several sweeps…”
But Thales pinched him, solemnly asked:
“I don’t know,” Mertesa shook his head:
“I have a friend who lives in Qingpiwo. He said that they don’t want to come here, and they don’t want to do this kind of flower work without oil, water and money.”
“But the order was sent from a higher person. They have no choice but to obey it even if they do it.”
莱约克 依旧疑惑，科恩 也百思不解，哥洛佛则无所谓地旁观。
Layork is still puzzled, Kohen is also puzzled, and Glover looks on indifferently.
Thales alone, he stood on the side in a daze, his mind confused.
The City Hall is eyeing this…
The order was sent from someone above…
Thales subconsciously clenched his fists.
What I said…
He clenched his teeth, resisting the gratitude that surged from his chest.
Thank you, Gilbert.
“So the abandoned houses were so messed up, and the income was not enough to make ends meet, and the gains outweighed the losses. The boss of Morris decided: to tear down the fences of the abandoned houses, release the beggars, and divide them into small groups scattered to the bottom. In my hand, a tuft here, a circle there-better than to catch everything in one net someday.”
Mertesa’s face darkened, then he laughed mockingly:
“As soon as the beggar goes away, we useless people…haha, isn’t it even more useless?”
Layork was silent.
Kohen can’t care about the other party’s mood, he takes an anxious step forward:
“So, the beggars of Brother will not be raised in abandoned houses now?”
“In the various gangs on the street?”
Mertesa looked up at Kohen, his eyes turned around on the hilt of the opponent’s sword, slightly confused, but still replied:
“More than just.”
Mertesa tightened his empty right sleeve, disdainfully sneered:
“Brother will, there have been no beggars long ago.”
As soon as this statement came out, everyone was stunned.
“What do you mean?” Kohen’s reaction was the biggest, his eyes widened:
“No more? Why?”
Mertesa said with a sneer:
“Because I can’t afford it.”
Layork took his eyes away from the poor people around:
“Why can’t I support it?”
Mertesa stared at him:
“Why, you have been following Morris for so long, don’t you know? He didn’t tell you when he fucked your ass?”
Layork exhales one breath saying, unbearable, he pressed his hand on the handle of the knife again.
But Thales is faster than him.
“Mertesar, do you know what this is?”
Thales smiled and stretched out a fist.
Mertesa took a sip on the ground:
“Ha, Zaozhuang, I hope your fist can be harder than the stuff below you.”
But Thales didn’t think he was disgusted, and still held his fist firmly.
“What I hold in my hand now is a Silver Coin.”
“A king’s head and a line of characters are engraved on it.”
Mertesa is frowned.
Thales pointed to the broken house behind him, gently and honestly:
“Ten seconds later, I will throw it into the yard where you and your mother live-and it will make a crisp metal sound, let everyone here know.”
Mertesa’s face changed.
“Trust me, I have seen that a small Silver Coin can change the destiny of many people.”
Thales pointed to the homeless people who looked curiously in the distance, with no diminished smile:
“Now, let me ask again: Why can’t the gangs support beggars?”
Mertesa stared at him angrily.
“I have been living in an abandoned house, not quite clear,” Seeing Thales put his fists away and made a throwing gesture, Mertesa changed his words unhappily:
“But I heard people on the street say that in recent years…”
“A newcomer has arrived in Qingpiwo.”
Thales for a moment:
“Yes, people call him…”
Mertesa is not authentic:
“Stupid police officer.”
In that second, everyone was dumbfounded.
All eyes looked towards the same person.
Mertesa doesn’t care about their abnormalities, each minding their own business:
“Everyone on the street says that guy has a bad brain, but he has a lot of energy.”
“I heard that he went to the streets for three days and engaged in troubles, especially the “taking care” of those beggar gangs. He was always in jail when he saw the child helping his parents set up a stall, and he would rush up and question all day–even begging Children bother him.”
Thales’ breathing speeded up, and he turned his head slowly:
Kohen stood in a daze, listening to Mertesar’s words.
“There are several gangs who want to knock him sap or something, but that swollen cub… He’s too capable of hitting. Several times he has a bloody nose and swollen face, and he can’t walk. It’s safe to do so, and patrolling the streets like everyone else.”
Mertesa lightly shook his head:
“There are still people who want to go the way inside Qingpi, splashing dirty water, stuffing black money or something, but how to say, that cub species, the brain is really lacking in tendons, and the whole person is just like a pen Come in.”
“In the past few years, he has been complained, reprimanded, punished, suspended, detained, and eaten so many times that he is still ignorant. He hasn’t learned anything. Once he is reinstated, he is still ignorant. But I ran into the street with great strength! It was messing up endlessly!”
“听说有几个团伙昏了头，决定要动手杀人，但没有下文，我估计是被制止了——开什么玩笑，在永星 城 里明着要青皮的命，你真当警戒厅是吃素的啊？”
“I heard that several gangs fainted and decided to kill people, but there is no further information. I guess they were stopped-what a joke, in Eternal Star City, it is clear that Qingpi’s life is for you. Is the Security Department vegetarian?”
Mertesa smiled and said, just like talking about a joke after a meal.
哥洛佛惊讶地看看科恩 ，莱约克 也紧皱眉头。
Glover looked at Kohen in surprise, and Layork frowned.
But Kohen stared at Mertesa blankly, lost consciousness and breathing disorder.
Thales had to bump his arm.
“In the past few years, the subordinates of Brother Society, eight-nine, a gang responsible for watching beggars, are almost crying, and they are all miserable. It is hard to even go to the streets to do business, let alone make money. .”
Kohen swallowed hard.
“Such gangs either can’t afford to eat, they have separated, or they fall into the hands of that idiot Qingpi, go in and squat, or switch to other business: working in the west city gate to accompany outsiders. Red Square Street staring at clients and fattening sheep, isn’t it more popular than raising young guys to ask for money and perform errands?”
Thales did not speak, he just stood there and took a deep breath.
It is Kohen who is talking, his lips are shaking, his voice is tense:
“Yes,” Mertesa’s tone went down:
“Now, with so many streets around so many streets, no one is struggling to raise beggars in captivity anymore-at least all I know is gone, thanks to that idiot Qingpi.”
“The beggars you are encountering now, either go to the streets and run wild, or work for the parents at home, and you have to guard against it, in case that stupid police officer comes to shop again someday— —Brother What are you doing? Why are you crying?”
Mertesa looked at Kohen suspiciously at his chest rising and falling.
Kohen closed his eyes and waved his hand.
He turned his head to one side to prevent others from seeing his face, only his shoulders were shaking slightly.
“Nothing,” Thales face doesn’t change, but my mood is complicated:
“He has a friend who was also pitted by that idiot, so he is a little excited.”
Kohen hid his face tightly in his sleeve, nodded his fate.
Glover handed out a handkerchief expressionlessly, and Kohen pulled it over and started blowing his nose without saying a word.
Mertesa put on an expression of looking at a fool, frowned looked towards Kohen.
Layork is not reconciled:
“Brother will no longer raise beggars, what about our street intelligence, what about new blood?”
Mertesa chuckled lightly.
“The ghost knows, but it’s all about it, so I secretly stuffed the beggars some money to work, run errands, touch the sheep, let the wind, pass the letter and so on…”
Mertesa is talking, his expression is not angry:
“也对，这些年，你们从血瓶帮 手里搞到了红坊街 还有一大批地盘，去这些新地界上收保护费的人手都不够，谁还理乞儿怎么样……”
“That’s right. Over the years, you have obtained Red Square Street from the Blood Bottle Gang and a large number of sites. There are not enough people to collect protection fees in these new territories. How about beggars…”
“以前呐，兄弟会是被血瓶帮 压得抬不起头来，可是现在，看看你，威风的莱约克 老大，把红头巾们打得抱头鼠窜，想加入兄弟会的人，可是排着队都来不及！”
“Before, brother would have been crushed by the Blood Bottle Gang, but now, look at you, the majestic Layork boss, he beat the red headscarves into covered head and sneaked away like a rat and wants to join Brother, people who will be waiting in line are too late!”
Mertesa laughed heartily, the laughter is sad:
“Who the hell has time to take care of our stale waste–who cares!”
The air was filled with Mertesa’s crazy laughter, Layork remained silent for a long time without speaking.
Mertesa laughed enough, he calmed down:
“Now, who has the problem?”
Kohen was still rubbing his face, and Glover tugged at the corners of his mouth indifferently.
Thales removed his gaze from his sleeve and stopped talking.
Layork looked at him deeply, shook the head.
“Very good,” Mertesa bowed hard, sarcastically:
“Now forgive me for my unaccompaniment, gentlemen.”
After speaking, he turned around and limped in the direction of Beth.
Layork quietly stared at his back and at the empty sleeves.
“You won’t go to the sixth house?”
The Silent killer suddenly uttered:
“At least, go get the pots and bowls back.”
Mertesa never looked back, sneaked.
“The one who lives there is another group of brothers who will beat thugs, although they are disabled or sick,” Mertesa pressed his severed arm, his voice lost:
“But they are crowded.”
Layork slightly trembled.
The sound of Mertesa’s footsteps fell together and faded away.
Layork sighed, walked up and handed out a purse:
“Listen to me, Morris boss just needs…”
Mertesa took the purse subconsciously.
But after a few seconds, his expression changed from stunned to angry, ashamed, and then vicious.
“莫里斯 莫里斯 莫里斯 ！”
“Morris Morris Morris!”
“Can you fucking stop chanting other people’s names all day long! You are a person!”
Mertesa’s eyes were red, he threw away the purse, roar said:
“And he is not your father!”
Mertesa’s fierce reaction shocked everyone.
Layork stared at the money bag on the ground, took a deep breath:
“听我说，莫里斯 老大，他跟罗达 不一样……”
“Listen to me, Morris boss, he is different from Rhoda…”
“It’s not like you are paralyzed!”
Mertesa angrily roared:
“I don’t need your charity! Get out!”
One of the former 13 Generals dragged his remnant angrily and left tremblingly.
“This is the so-called’come out,’” Glover didn’t know what he thought of, he looked at Mertesa’s back and said quietly:
“All dignity is vain.”
Kohen sniffed, still hiding half of his face in his sleeve:
“No, I… I actually think… others are pretty good… wu wu…”
Layork was the only one who didn’t say a word. He looked at the back of his old acquaintance from a distance and closed his eyes.
Thales walked by his side, looking at Mertesa’s limping pace, and said with emotion:
“This is his ending-even the 13 Generals.”
“If one day, you become like him…”
“What would you do?”
Layork eyes opened, killing intent is full: “I don’t know.”
“But definitely not following you, up and the others.”
Thales chuckled lightly.
But he immediately turned around and looked towards the stupid big fellow who was crying with rustling sound.
Thales looked sadly at the abandoned house, at this once heavily guarded and cruel place:
“Brother will…there are no more beggars.”
Figure trembled of the police officer.
泰尔斯 抬起头，第一次觉得，永星 城 的天空不再灰暗：
Thales lifts the head, for the first time I feel that the sky in Eternal Star City is no longer gloomy:
“Thanks to someone who is persistent and stupid-a stupid police officer.”
Kohen sobbed heavily.
He lowered his arms and returned his handkerchief to Glover, who was full of disgust.
“I don’t know, Your Highness, wow, I mean,” Kohen has red eyes and twitched nose, sincerely:
“Although it is complicated and dramatic, but…”
“Those beggars who have escaped come to clean up the abandoned city hall, the most important thing is you, your efforts, Kohen…”
Kohen was breathing desperately, feeling the blockage in his chest, and looking at Prince gratefully.
“They did change something.”
With infinite emotion, Thales stepped forward and sighed with emotion:
“They are useful.”
“Even if… there is only one sword.”
Kohen swallowed his sore throat hard and his feelings were complicated:
“I don’t know, Your Highness, I don’t know…”
He buried his face in his hands again.
Glover sighed and took out another clean handkerchief.
“你还记得吗，科恩 ，”泰尔斯 心知此刻的警戒官心情何如，但他自己却渐渐出神：
“Do you remember, Kohen,” Thales knew how the police officer was feeling at this moment, but he gradually lost his mind:
“What we did in the Palace of Valor six years ago.”
Kohen looked up suspiciously.
“You said, I saved the world.”
Thales is quiet and authentic, as if returning to the winter six years ago:
“I didn’t understand at the time, but…”
“Just like you said-our desperate efforts in the Palace of Valor, seem insignificant…”
Thales took a deep breath, turning to the way it came and moving forward.
“But for those who may be affected by future wars…”
“It did save the world.”
Thales crossed everyone and raised the corners of his mouth from an angle that no one saw:
“Thank you, Kohen.”
哥洛佛跟上泰尔斯 ，撞了撞发呆的科恩 。
Glover followed Thales and ran into Kohen who was in a daze.
“No, no, I didn’t do anything at all,” Kohen reacted and hurriedly caught up, and threw the second handkerchief to zombie by the way:
“I am stupid, I don’t understand many things…”
“不，科恩 ，”泰尔斯 一马当先，走向再也没有铁锁拦门的废屋出口：“只有迟钝的笨蛋。”
“No, Kohen,” Thales took the lead and walked towards the exit of the abandoned house where there are no more iron locks: “Only dull fools.”
“You can become a hero.”
Kohen slightly paused.
At this time.
Layork straightened up and picked up the purse that Mertesa lost, coldly said:
“Even if the brother will leave it alone, do you think these beggars will learn by themselves on the street?”
“Their situation will only get worse.”
Layork squeezed the purse, a trace of pain appeared on his face:
“It’s still the same in the end, becoming someone like us.”
“You are far from success.”
Kohen is frowned.
Glover is lightly snorted, snorting in the direction of Mertesa:
“Why don’t you worry more about yourself, how can you not become the next him?”
In that second, Layork’s arm suddenly became blue.
“You are right,” Thales suddenly took the topic:
“We are still far from the so-called success-Xiacheng is still chaotic, the kingdom is still dark, society is still unfair, and we are still fighting against those… enemies that cannot be killed at all.”
Glover looked towards Prince and wondered why he said this.
Thales’s complexion darkened:
“Even, we are always impossible to succeed-even if we try our best, throughout our life, even thousands of years later, our offspring, the offspring of our offspring, will not succeed.”
Layork coldly smiled.
But it was Kohen who replied.
“But so what?”
Everyone turned their heads together and looked towards the speaking officer strangely.
“It won’t succeed—that’s what this thing means, isn’t it.”
Glover winked, Layork frowned.
“Because it can’t be done,” Kohen breathed in a daze, clenching his fists:
“Persist in doing it, it makes more sense.”
He reacted, lifts the head sorryly and looked at other people cautiously:
Layork’s brows are getting tighter.
“Well said, Kohen.”
“Do you know who is the greatest Knight in the world?”
“Huh?” Upon hearing the cultural class question, Kohen’s expression instantly turned into a bitter face, and he scratched his hair:
“When I was young, old fogey and Teacher both taught me the top ten knights in the history of the empire…but I…I seem to remember that there was a Knight named Needham…”
Thales shook the head.
“The greatest Knight in the world,” Thales said quietly:
“His name is called…”
哥洛佛和科恩 全神贯注，就连莱约克 也注视着他。
Glover and Kohen concentrate attention completely, even Layork is watching him.
Thales closed his eyes and took a deep breath, then slowly opened his eyes, and extracted the great name from the long-lasting memory:
At that moment, everyone was stunned, and everyone looked confused.
Only Thales is still smiling.
“Um… I didn’t do well in school when I was young, can I ask, who is he?” Kohen cautiously asked.
Thales was silent for a moment.
“He is a Knight, a Knight who is determined to charge towards the most impossible goal.”
Glover and Kohen are in shock.
Prince lifts the head, his eyes are full of confusion:
“But he is still charging.”
“Even if he…”
In the next second, Layork suddenly took a deep breath!
He turned around abruptly, and threw the money bag in his hand toward a place with the most homeless people!
Thales and the others startled together.
“I have something else,” Layork parted ways with them without looking back amidst the clanging of coins and the clamor of people:
“Walk around by yourself, brother will say hello, no one dares to make it difficult for you.”
“That is not the way out.”
“I know.” Layork replied coldly, leaving them a distant back.
But Thales smiled.
He knows: That is the direction of the sixth house.
“Is he angry?” Kohen wiped the last tear from the corner of his eyes and asked carefully.
“No,” Thales shook the head:
“He is lost.”
科恩 看着远方处的莱约克 ，迷茫地摸了摸后脑。
Kohen looked at Layork in the distance and touched the back of his head in confusion.
“Are we going to keep up with him, your lord, it’s safer to have him.” Glover stared cautiously all around.
“No,” Thales suddenly felt very happy. He looked at the road he was most familiar with:
“We are not going back.”
Glover suddenly had a bad feeling.
“Where shall we go?” Kohen asked stupidly: “I recommend the Xicheng Security Department…”
Thales shook the head, with firm eyes:
Glover’s brows tightened:
“What to do for…?”
Thales stopped, he turned a direction and looked straight at the horizon.
Glover heart shivered with cold.
He knows: That is the direction of Renaissance Palace.
Thales took a deep breath, exhale slowly:
Okay, feel free to do it, anyway, I really don’t have a drop.
