Counterfeit Hero - Chapter 45
Chapter 45: We Will Pay the Price Together
Translator: Chaos Editor: Geoffrey
In the end, the two who paid the price were the two commando retiree bodyguards. One had to
know that the champion of freestyle unarmed combat in the special scouts battalion was
Ballack, and even he was knocked out from a single kick by Fatty, who had trained for several
months in the gravity room.
If competing in speed, Tian Xing Jian had a pair of innately fast hands. If competing in
strength, Tian Xing Jian had trained in the gravity room, allowing for his strikes to be
extremely heavy. Both his hands and his legs were just like four hammers, mighty and fierce.
As the two bodyguards came closer, like lightning, Tian Xing Jian quickly moved up to them, as
if he was a lion pouncing on his prey. The bodyguard had only seen a flash of figure before he
was immediately forced to use his hands to parry the attack. With a ’’Ka!’’, Tian Xing Jian's
lateral kick struck on the arms of the bodyguard, causing him to retreat a few steps and
remaining in that spot whilst barely being able to stay standing. With a pale face, he checked
his own arms, as he could feel the bones in his arm had fractured from the kick of Tian Xing
With an extremely fast speed, Tian Xing Jian dodged the sneaky kick from the second
bodyguard that came from below him. Grabbing onto the bodyguard's ankle with his right
hand, he exerted all of his strength and struck at his abdomen with his elbow, much like a strike
from a hammer. This bodyguard curled up from the attack and fell onto the floor; he was in so
much pain that sweat started forming on his forehead.
Tian Xing Jian slapped his hands a few time before looking at Joseph with a smile. ’’If you want
to throw me out, I'm afraid you might have to find several other people.’’
Joseph's expression turned ashen. He had not thought that his two bodyguards would not be
able to deal with this fatty's attacks. Right when he was feeling anxious and angry, he suddenly
saw a Federation lieutenant general walking towards him.
Joseph bitterly gave him a smile, saying, ’’General Mi, I am truly sorry, but as you can see...’’
That lieutenant general waved his hand to stop Joseph from continuing. Walking towards Tian
Xing Jian, he snorted at him, ’’Such a brilliant land-based army first lieutenant! You have truly
destroyed the reputation of soldiers of the Federation!’’
Seeing that general, Tian Xing Jian was immediately stumped. He was not afraid of anyone else,
but the person in front of him was a general. Even if he had greater capabilities, he would still
have to succumb to this natural enemy of his!
He had met a true opponent now while he was bullying others, making him curse his luck. Fatty
was about to try and explain what had happened when that lieutenant general just ignored him
and signaled for the military guards to escort Tian Xing Jian away. He ordered, ’’Lock him up
first. After today, send him to the military police for further investigations and strict
At this moment, two female soldiers immediately came up to Tian Xing Jian and stood in front
of him. They said in unity, ’’Who dares!?’’
Tian Xing Jian felt dizzy. The two female soldiers who dared to shout back at the lieutenant
general were none other than Mei Duo and Ni Ya.
Thereafter, more and more figures came pushing their way through the crowd and gave Tian
Xing Jian a salute before standing in front of him. These were the Federation soldiers who had
previously been rescued from the concentration camp. The person in front of him was none
other than the hero of the Federation discussed in the hottest news, the one who had rescued a
total of 270 soldiers.
Colonel Peter walked out from the crowd and rushed towards Fatty to give him a salute before
turning towards the lieutenant general and saying they would shoulder Fatty's mistakes.
Seeing such a scene, the crowd started stirring from what had just happened. Several
journalists who entered the restaurant as guests knew with their acute senses that this was a
serious bomb on the news.
Under the flashes of light, the crowd remained silent.
Astonishment, confusion, indignance, and disbelief were shown on the faces of the lieutenant
general and Joseph.
The lieutenant general knew that this matter was no longer that simple. These Federation
soldiers, who had become famous, would certainly not take such an action for an unknown first
lieutenant who was causing a disturbance in the restaurant. He laughed bitterly in his heart. If
only he had listened to the explanations given by the fatty or if those two hot-headed female
soldiers did not rush out, this matter would not have been blown up to such an extent.
Suddenly, looking at the person behind that soldier, the lieutenant general saw a person
sticking her head out and looking around. This person's actions were making him wonder if he
should laugh or not. ’’Come out, Milan!’’
At that moment, Milan, who had always been hiding behind Tian Xing Jian, immediately hid
herself even further behind the back of Fatty. The warm and firm yet soft chest sticking on the
back of Fatty made the point of contact feel numb, feeling as if his spirit was ascending to
Who would have thought that after she extended her head out of curiosity to see what was
happening, she would be discovered. Hearing the voice of the lieutenant general, Milan knew
that she could not hide any longer. Walking out shyly, she said, ’’Father.’’
The moment Mills and his group of friends heard how Milan addressed the lieutenant general,
they almost fainted. They knew that this time, they had created a huge problem. A first
lieutenant had actually caused all the Federation heroes to step forward and share the
punishment, and that beautiful woman who was scolded as trash by Mills was actually the
daughter of the lieutenant general.
Milan's father, Federation Lieutenant General Mickey, pointed at Tian Xing Jian and Colonel
Peter before commanding, ’’Follow me. You all deserve to give me an explanation.’’ Saying that,
he led Milan towards an empty corner of the restaurant.
Tian Xing Jian gratefully looked towards Peter and all the comrades who shared battles of life
and deaths with him, softly saying, ’’Thank you, everyone.’’
Colonel Peter smiled. ’’We are honored to do something for you. Even if we are made
scapegoats, without you, we would not be here.’’
HIs voice might not have been loud, but it was enough for the journalists, who had been
extending their ears out, to hear clearly, learning what they had said. Their minds worked truly
fast as they knew that the mysterious company commander was none other than the first
lieutenant in front of them.
Peter's voice was loud and clear within the quiet restaurant, ’’Receiving the punishment with
you is our decision. From the moment we saw you, we are already brothers who live and die
Including Joseph, Mills and his group of friends, and the large number of guests and journalists
within the restaurant, they could see how this land-based army first lieutenant's eyes were
filled with reverence, admiration, and adoration.
If those prisoners-of-war who had been saved had become heroes, then what about the person
who relied on his own strength to bring the group of captives out of their predicament while
making an important deduction? This special scouts vice company commander should be the
hero amongst all heroes!
How could such a hero jeer at his own comrades whom he shared life and death with? How
could he create trouble for no reasons at all?
Seeing Tian Xing Jian and Peter walk towards the lieutenant general, the crowd began
discussing. The more Joseph thought about what just happened, the more he became angrier.
Slapping Mills, he said as his entire body trembled, ’’You child! See what have you created? This
father is going to beat you to death!’’
Without waiting for Joseph to beat him, Mills slapped himself before saying softly, ’’Father, it's
my fault. I'm sorry.’’
Although Mills had a sloppy and reckless character and would occasionally bully others, he was
still a relatively staunch Federation teenager. At his age, he would especially worship heroes in
his mind. Today, he came here especially for those Federation heroes who had escaped
successfully from the enemy's rear lines after running a thousand miles while battling on the
But who would have thought that he had eyes but could not recognize Mount Tai ? The
biggest hero was standing in front of him, yet he had offended him with his tiny heart.
Thinking about that, he began feeling ashamed and immediately slapped himself a few more
times. He truly felt guilty.
 Lol. If you don't recognize this, then I dunno what to say.
