Chapter 57.2

Just by listening to the beginning, Wen Chi could hear the probing meaning in that man’s words.

He was speechless.

Even if he didn’t take the initiative to provoke those people that doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t necessarily keep their distance from him.

Wen Chi was silent for a moment, then said, “Of course I persuaded with my mouth.”

The corner of the man’s mouth twitched twice: “What I mean is, did General Lin agree to take you out so easily?”

Wen Chi said: “Of course it is with Prince Xuan’s consent.”

The man said: “Did Prince Xuan agreed to take you out so easily?”

Wen Chi said, “Naturally, it was also with the consent of His Majesty.”

The man was taken aback immediately and his eyes widened in surprise: “You mean… the emperor granted you permission to come to Jinzhou with Prince Xuan?”

“How do I know what the emperor is thinings?” Wen Chi raised his head and smiled at the man, “Why don’t you ask the emperor for me, Sir Zhang?”

He was about to open his mouth to speak, when he realized that he had no way to refute Wen Chi.
His face turned blue with anger and his body trembled uncontrollably.
He was about to speak when Wen Chi, who had been prepared, pulled Ruo Fang up and quickly slipped out of the inn.

Wen Chi and Ruo Fang ran back to the carriage in one breath.

Ruo Fang was so frightened by the expression on the man’s face that she kept patting her chest and when she could easily catch her breath, she looked worriedly at Wen Chi who was also panting, out of breath.

“Young Master, if we tease Sir Zhang like that, will they report to Prince Xuan?”

Wen Chi said, “They wouldn’t dare.”

Ruo Fang was confused.

Wen Chi let out a “They would only dare to sneer at me behind General Lin’s back, but if it were in front of General Lin, they might not even dare to fart.”

Ruo Fang laughed out loud at what Wen Chi said.


After the episode just now, Wen Chi didn’t dare to get off the carriage easily, and he didn’t let Ruo Fang get off the carriage either but called two guards who were close to him to help him carry the things he left behind in the inn to the carriage.

After a night of reorganization, the whole party was in good spirits and set off to continue their journey.

When the destination got closer, there were more and more pedestrians on the main road, some walking, some driving horse-drawn carts or ox carts and there were also vendors selling goods on both sides of the road.

This scene was much more livelier than the barren mountains and mountains before.

Wen Chi tied the curtain in front of the car window into a knot and leaned against the car window to look out.

Not long after, they came to the gate of Jinzhou City.

The whole team slowly stopped.

It wasn’t until the leader in front communicated with the gatekeeper that the whole group proceeded to move forward.

Wen Chi thought that Jinzhou City would be more lively than outside but this was not the case.
There were not many vendors and pedestrians on the streets and even the restaurants and shops on both sides had a desolate and deserted atmosphere.

If the capital city is prosperous and lively, then the city of Jinzhou is dilapidated and old.

What surprised Wen Chi was that along the way, he saw more beggars than pedestrians.
Those beggars were dressed in rags, lying on the side of the road in various postures and there were even women holding children.

Perhaps Wen Chi’s team was so eye-catching that the beggars were all looking at them eagerly.
Later, no one knew who started it but the beggars scrambled to surround them, crying and complaining about their grievances while blocking the road. 

So the team had to stop again.

Wen Chi lowered the curtain but he could clearly hear the noise outside and the scolding of the guards, which almost exploded into a frenzy.

After a long time, the team moved forward very slowly.

When the team stopped for the third time, a guard ran to the window and told Wen Chi that they had reached their destination.

Wen Chi got out of the carriage, only to find that they had arrived at the residence of the governor of Jinzhou.
He and General Lin were arranged to live here.
The courtyard where he lived was next to General Lin’s courtyard.

The governor of Jinzhou, Zhou Fang, is a middle-aged man in his forties.
He looks thin.
Don’t know whether it was his work that made him look sad and always frowning, he was also fond of sighing.

The residence of the governor was far from being as nice as Wen Chi had imagined, not half as nice as Wen Chi’s and even the courtyard assigned to Wen Chi is far less than the courtyard where Wen Chi lived in Wen’s mansion before.

When he arrived here, Wen Chi’s mood also became quite heavy.

He had long known that the disaster in Jinzhou was serious but he could never have imagined that it would be as serious as this.

For the first three days, Wen Chi didn’t receive any notice, so he stayed in the courtyard obediently for three days.

It was not until the morning of the fourth day that Wen Chi was notified by the servants of the mansion to gather in the hall after lunch.

So Wen Chi set off half an hour earlier and he came to the hall alone, only to see seven or eight people sitting scattered in the hall.
His eyes looked around the hall, and finally fixed on Hua Zi Zang.

He was not familiar with the others and among these people he only knew Hua Zi Zang.

He hesitated for a moment, then walked towards Hua Zi Zang.

Hua Zi Zang had his back to him and was admiring a painting hanging on the wall.

“Young Master Hua.” Wen Chi greeted with a smile, “You’re early.”

The next moment, Wen Chi clearly felt Hua Zi Zang’s back change from relaxed to tense.
