The Magus Era - Chapter 429
Chapter 429: A Female Slave
Translator: Law Editor: Hitesh
Next to a bonfire, aggrieved cries could even shake the sky.
A young girl, who had a beautiful face and dark skin, as tender and smooth as the top-quality
silk, was swamped down by a tall and sturdy human warrior, whose body was covered in dense
black hair that even made him look like a black bear. Both hands of the warrior were hastily
scratching on the girl's body.
The girl's simple and rough clothes had already been ripped into rags, by now, and she could
only barely cover her vital body parts with her hands.
The bear-like man gave a loud and wild laugh. Judging from the voice, the words Ji Hao heard
just now were said by him. From time to time, he raised his head and yelled at the other human
warriors in the surrounding, ’’I fought in Chi Ban Mountain, showered in blood and finally got
back alive. What's the big deal of playing a couple of women? Not to mention that these are all
females of non-humankind, can they even be seen as people?’’
A middle-aged slave warrior, who seemed to not be young at all, and had gray stubble on his
cheeks, was lying next to the bonfire. His both arms were broken and knees were badly
mutilated by heavy weapons; he also had a huge hole on his head. He popped his eyes widely
out, staring right at that girl who was pressed down on the ground.
This middle-aged slave warrior was rather powerful. Although his shoulder blades were
punctured and he was forced to take the body-weakening medicine, his wounds had been
quickly squirming and healing themselves. Judging from the current rate, even though he was
locked and weakened by medicine, his wounds would fully recover in three to five days at most.
The life-force remained so strong even after he took the medicine. Clearly, the true power of
this middle-aged slave warrior could be great as the power of a Jia Clan big warrior. He was
only half a step away from the stage of shell-breaking.
Seeing the girl swamped down by that bear-like sturdy man, this middle-aged slave warrior
constantly letting muffled crackles out of his throat, but couldn't say a word. Someone had
sliced his throat and opened his trachea. By now, he could only barely keep breathing, how
could he even possibly say any word?
Large groups of slave warriors dragged their weak and tired bodies up, grabbed stones or
firewood from the ground, madly rushing towards this bonfire like furious wild beasts.
However, tens of human warriors with heavy armors and sharp long spears lined up and
encircled the bonfire. As those slave warriors rushing up staggeringly, these human warriors
slightly lunged the long spears held in their hands and easily ripped up these slave warriors'
bodies, leaving deep and large slashes and countless holes on their bodies.
Over a thousand slave warriors were strung together by the beast tendon rope that went
through their shoulder blades. This made their movements extremely inconvenient and
inflexible. With over ten among them being hurt and fall down, the moves of the rest of them
would always become especially hard, and they couldn't even approach those human warriors
standing near the bonfire.
A great number of slave warriors roared themselves hoarse in rage, but facing those human
warriors who were armed to the teeth, their roars and growls were like a breeze blowing across
the faces of those human warriors, causing not even a little bit of harm.
From not too far away, sad and shrill cries started. A large group of dark-skinned women and
children were crying, screaming, wailing and cursing in the darkness, where the light of the
bonfire couldn't reach.
These slave warriors were given to the humankind by the nobles of the Blood Moon as trophies,
their families had been sent to the Chi Ban Mountain as well. The humankind would never feed
useless beings, and therefore, all these families of those slave warriors were young females and
children. Females were able to reproduce, generation after generation, all their descendants
would be slaves; as for those children, after they grew a couple of years older, they would
become qualified slaves!
Facing the violence of human warriors, they could only huddle in the darkness, crying, wailing
and cursing; they were incapable of anything apart from this.
Ji Hao rushed over with big steps with that huge ax carried in his hand. He directly pushed the
few non-humankind slave warriors, who were pouncing forward, down to the ground. Along
with bright streams of flame, Ji Hao dashed to the bonfire, but before he said anything, that
warrior who had been assaulting the girl raised his head and laughed wildly loud towards Ji
’’Oh, 'Lord' Ji Hao, this girl is pretty nice, her skin is a bit dark indeed, but still tasty in a certain
way. Plus, she's strong and powerful, screwing her got to be quite satisfying! Have you ever
tried women before? Hehe, don't tell me that you're still a virgin, are you? I haven't started yet,
do you want to have some fun first? I can give this lovely one to you!’’
The group of human warrior burst into laughter. Their faces seemed burning red due to alcohol
while they nearly lost all their minds. They were laughing hoarsely, even laughing themselves
into convulsions. Under the light of the flickering bonfire, lights of shadows constantly shifted
positions on the faces of these human warriors, making them look as ferocious as monsters.
The non-humankind girl who had been pressed down on the ground had screamed herself
hoarse and already lost the last bit of her power. Her black and sparkling pair of eyes were filled
with despair and fear. Ji Hao looked at this girl while he said to the man, who was assaulting
her, ’’Is she your slave?’’
The warrior paused, then subconsciously shook his head.
After being sent back to Pu Ban city, these slaves would be given out to all different scaled clans
which had joined the war, according to the grade of military exploit made by each clan in this
war. After that, each clan would take their slaves back to their territories, and give them out to
individuals according to their personal military exploit and social status.
Which meant, for these human warriors who were responsible for escorting these slaves and
slave warriors back to Pu Ban City, it was possible that none of these nearly hundred thousand
slaves and slave warriors would end up be theirs.
Ji Hao rushed up and threw a violent kick on the sturdy man's head. Followed by a thunderous
boom, that man's body was sent straight up into the air while spinning. He was kicked up to
over a hundred zhang high from the ground by Ji Hao then fell heavily down, head booming
against the ground.
The entire area instantly fell into a deadly silence. Those warriors, whose minds were all
messed up by alcohol, stared at Ji Hao dumbly in confusion. They blinked their eyes, unable to
understand why Ji Hao even dared to attack that warrior.
This place was filled with them after all. These over a thousand human warriors who were
responsible for escorting slaves were all from the Ink Ape Clan.
Also, except for this slave-escorting troop led by Ji Hao, among all slave-escorting troops that
were not too far away from them, over ten were from their Ink Ape Clan. Warriors in those
troops were all their clansmen as well. In total, there were twenty to thirty thousand Ink Ape
Clan's clansmen in surrounding areas.
How on earth did Ji Hao dare to launch the attack!?
Looking at those confused and dumbed Ink Ape Clan warriors, Ji Hao roared angrily, ’’As she's
not yet your slave, how dare you do this?!’’
A human warrior abruptly leaped up, pointed at Ji Hao and barfed, ’’It's just a woman!’’
Ji Hao threw out the giant ax carrying in his hand, fiercely smashing on this warrior's chest,
hollowed his chest bone and squeezed huge streams of blood out of his mouth. Next, Ji Hao
growled ragingly, ’’It's indeed a woman, a female slave! Hand out the money! Just hand out the
money! For a woman in such a quality, with such a face and body, how much will she be worth
in Pu Ban city? Give the money! Whoever bought her out can do anything you want to her!’’
The group of Ink Ape Clan warriors all shut their mouths.
Such a particularly beautiful non-humankind girl, especially a young one, would be at least
worth ten jade coins in Pu Ban city.
Whole ten jade coins. For these warriors, who had just been through a gravely great war in Chi
Ban Mountain, they couldn't even bring out one jade coin, not even if tens of them pooled all
their money together! Before they left home for the war, even if they had some extra money,
they had left all for their families. In Chi Ban Mountain, they could occasionally gain some, but
that had been traded for wine or other joyful things.
These warriors were literally poor! Until their clan allocated the trophies, they didn't even have
a single coin.
Ji Hao glared at these warriors with a storm of anger, and said, ’’Don't have the money? Get the
hell back to stand sentry! If anything goes wrong, how many lives do you have to lose?!’’
A raging roar rose. The sturdy man who had just suffered a heavy kick launched by Ji Hao
finally caught his breath. He bared his upper body and grabbed a long spear from an unknown
source, rushing towards Ji Hao with huge steps, his entire body wrapped in coiling black mist
