Saying that, Ye Chen gave a slight beat and continued, “As for the second thing, it is to remove all the toxins from all of your bodies without the Broken Qing Society noticing, but the premise is that none of you can escape and must stay here to cooperate with me and follow my orders at all times.”
“And the third thing is for you all to stay here and cooperate with me both inside and outside after the poison is removed, in preparation for the complete elimination of the Broken Qing Society!”
Li Nianzong frowned and then said with a serious face, “Since you want to be the enemy of the Qing Breaking Society, then you and we have a common enemy and are our comrades in arms, and you are willing to lift the poison from our bodies, then you are our benefactor, as long as you can stop controlling us like the Qing Breaking Society, I, Li Nianzong, am willing to follow your lead! ”
Ye Chen said indifferently, “Since I have brought the antidote that can completely remove the poison from your bodies, I naturally will not turn around and use such underhanded means to control you to work for me like the Qing Breaking Society did.”
What I need is for you to work together with me as comrades in arms to uproot the Qing Breakers. I will never interfere!”
Hearing these words, Li Nianzong’s whole body was already a little excited!
Ye Chen’s words had unleashed three huge surprises on him.
The first surprise was that they would all be completely freed from the poison in their bodies, and would no longer be shackled by it for the rest of their lives!
The second surprise was that Ye Chen shared a common goal with them, which was to eradicate the Broken Qing Society. Originally, he had never thought that he was capable of uprooting the Broken Qing Society, but Ye Chen’s profoundness made him subconsciously feel that by following him, his chances of success would be infinitely greater!
As for the third surprise, it was the promise of freedom that Ye Chen had given him!
This, was the key to changing the miserable fate of these people of theirs for hundreds of years!
None of their ancestors had ever longed for a free body.
But after all these years, countless people had given their lives for the Qing Breaking Society, and had even been killed by the Society itself, but none of them had ever gained freedom in the true sense of the word.
Some of the Primus Guards and their “scholarly” descendants did gain relative freedom by working for the Society, but as long as the poison remains intact, freedom remains firmly in the hands of the Society.
A bird in a cage has no freedom; a parrot with a chain around its ankle has no freedom either.
Therefore, the latter kind of conditional freedom has always been anathema to Li Nianzong as well.
If he had the chance, he would be more than willing to fight to the death against the Qing Breakers, and even if he died in the end, it would be a good death.
However, although he had such a mind, he was not a reckless man, and he knew very well that if he just went against the Broken Clear Society regardless of everything, it would basically be sending him to his death for nothing.
It was only a few minutes ago that Ye Chen’s antidote had sparked his confidence to fight to the death.
And after Ye Chen revealed his true purpose, his confidence grew even more!
With this in mind, without thinking, he knelt down on one knee, clasped his hands together and said reverently, “If you can keep your promise, I, Li Nianzong, swear on the name of all my ancestors that I will follow you until the Broken Qing Society completely disappears from this world!”
Then he suddenly changed his words and said, “No! I will follow you to the end of my life and serve you. As long as you can give my descendants freedom, I will be able to smile in my grave and have no regrets in my life!”
Ye Chen nodded and said indifferently, “I will naturally keep my promise, not only to you, but also to all the dead soldiers and primus inter pares who are controlled by the Qing Breaking Society.
