At this time, Jiang Family had already boiled the bone soup and kneaded the dough.
They will wait until tomorrow morning to add ingredients to cook the soup and fry roumotou.

Suddenly there was a knock on the door.

“Is someone knocking on the door?” Mrs.
Chen suspected that she had heard wrong.
Who would knock on the door at this hour.

Hearing the knock on the door wasn't rushed, it shouldn't be something urgent.

“Mother, could it be…” Jiang Yun Xue was timid and asked tremblingly.
She wanted to say, could it be ghosts? There were many legends about ghosts in the mountain village.
To knock on the door at this hour, it may really be…
She dared not say that word.
One shouldn’t utter ghosts at night!

Chen clenched the water ladle in her hand.
It couldn’t really be…

“I'll go and have a look.” Jiang Cheng said immediately.
He didn't believe that there were ghosts in this world.
Even if there were ghosts, he had to protect his family.

“Father, take this.” Jiang Yun Zhu handed Jiang Cheng a wooden stick used to lift the barrel.

Jiang Cheng took the stick and walked out.

Worried, Jiang Yun Zhu grabbed a kitchen knife and followed behind.
She wasn’t afraid of ghosts, she was only afraid of bandits and robbers.

The person knocking on the door seemed to have heard footsteps in the courtyard, and stopped knocking on the door.

“Who is it?” Jiang Cheng asked, standing in the courtyard.

“Merchants passing by.
We somehow lost our way and came to the mountains.
It was late at night and the dew was heavy.
We would like to borrow a place to stay for the night and get some food.
We shall trespass on your hospitality!” Yang Sheng said very politely.

When Jiang Cheng heard that this was the case, he was relieved and prepared to open the door.

But Jiang Yun Zhu stopped him and asked the people outside, “I wonder where Merchants come from and where are you going?” After asking, she suddenly felt that these words sound familiar.
That’s right, if there were a master and three apprentices outside, it would be more familiar when the answer is ‘The poor monk comes from the Eastern Tang Dynasty’.

Yang Sheng was prepared, “We came from Changfeng Manor.
Changfeng Manor is hit by disasters and the price of grain is extremely high.
We wanted to buy some grain in Lu Prefecture and sell it back.”

Hearing that they were from Changfeng Manor, Jiang Cheng felt so closeness.

Jiang Yun Zhu asked, “Is the merchant Changfeng Manor’s citizen?”

“No.” They spoke with a capital accent, “We're just doing business in Changfeng Manor.”

“Lincang County is in Changfeng Manor, do merchants know about it?”

“We know.
We've been there to sell food.”

“Oh? I've been very worried about how my relatives in Lincang County are doing.
I heard that the drought there is very serious.
I wonder if there is any water in the Cangshui River in Lincang County.” Jiang Yun Zhu asked.

Outside Yang Sheng wanted to laugh.
The girl inside was really an exquisite person.
There was no Cangshui River in Lincang County, there was only one Cangshan Mountain.
If they haven't been to Lincang County, they really can't answer her question.

For a moment, he suddenly wanted to tease the girl inside and tell her that the Cangshui River was out of water to see how she would react.

But forget it, he was hungry and cold now.
It was better not to cause problems.

“Did Miss remember wrongly? There’s no river in Lincang County, only one Cangshan Mountain.” He replied.

Jiang Yun Zhu didn't feel embarrassed when she was exposed.
She just said, “Really? I haven't been there for a long time.
maybe I really remembered it wrong.
By the way, what's the price of food in Changfeng Manor now?”

“Good rice is thirty-five wen a jin, brown rice is eighteen wen a jin.
They are too expensive.” Yang Sheng said.

Jiang Cheng was speechless.
Rice was so expensive? He felt even more fortunate to have moved out of Changfeng Manor early.

“However, I heard that the price of rice is going to drop.
The imperial court sent some commanding body to kill many officials of Changfeng Manor and distributed a lot of rice for disaster relief.
Now the disaster situation is much better than before.” Yang Sheng informed as he grinned at Shen Feng Ming.

Didn’t the girl inside want to hear about the situation in Changfeng Manor? So he simply told her to let her see if they were really from Changfeng Manor.

As for the commanding body, he was talking about Shen Feng Ming.
That’s why his words carried some teasing.

Jiang Yun Zhu immediately thought of Shen Feng Ming when she heard him mentioned a commanding body.
As she thought.
She was saying the killing god went to Changfeng Manor, so can Changfeng Manor be safe?

“Is there anything else you want to ask, Miss? We are indeed merchants from Changfeng Manor.
Even if the price of food in Changfeng Manor was lowered, it was still much more expensive than in Lu Prefecture.
We feel there is profit in this trip, so we came here.

Who would have thought that we would get lost.

Miss, we don't eat and drink for nothing.
We’ll pay,” he said sincerely.

At this moment, Jiang Cheng couldn't bear it anymore and replied, “You don't need to pay.
It isn’t easy for anyone outside.” After saying that, he went to open the door.

Jiang Yun Zhu didn't stop him this time.
She just remembered that this place wasn't far from Wuling Mine.
There was a large army stationed in Wuling Mine.
Any bandit who dares to rob here was seeking his own death.

Maybe it was truly lost merchants outside.

“Squeak.” The door opened.

“Who was it?” Mrs.
Chen was worried and came out with a lamp, which illuminated the people inside and outside the door.

Yang Sheng was taken aback.
He didn't have any impression of Jiang Cheng and Mrs.
But the girl swaying in the candlelight, Jiang Yun Zhu, he did have an impression, “Aren’t you…” It was a rare sight to see him, the smiling tiger to one day have a surprised face.

Shen Feng Ming also saw Jiang Yun Zhu's appearance clearly and was slightly surprised.

Jiang Cheng and Mrs.
Chen also recognized the two of them and were very surprised.
How did they come here? Oh right, what about those who followed them?

On the other hand, Jiang Yun Zhu was thunderstruck.
Only one thought in her head, the god of killing came knocking!

What Yang Sheng just said about merchants was a joke.
When did their Qilin Guards start transporting food? And get lost! How could Qilin Guards not know many lands and roads there were in the Great Xia Dynasty?

Lost my ass!

“Are you merchants?” Jiang Cheng asked.
Why did he feel they weren’t! Especially when they were riding tall horses with a team of black-clothed guards.

The corner of Yang Sheng's mouth twitched.
This feeling of being slapped in the face! But the words had already been spoken, so he could only say, “Yes, we are indeed merchants.
We came from the capital and wanted to do business in Changfeng Manor.
We hired those bodyguards because we heard that Changfeng Manor wasn't safe.

Now that we left Changfeng Manor, we don't need those people anymore.

Jiang Cheng looked at the two of them from top to bottom.
They both had a noble and expensive aura.
It was estimated that even if they were merchants, they were also sons of wealthy merchants in the capital.

After thinking about it, he hurriedly said, “Then come in quickly.
It’s cold outside.”

Yang Sheng and Shen Feng Ming stepped into the courtyard.

Jiang Cheng closed the door and led the two of them into the house.

Only then did Jiang Yun Zhu come back to her senses.
It was too late to stop it.
Also, she couldn't stop it.

“It’s fine as long as it isn't a ghost.” Mrs.
Chen walked behind and whispered.
She was most afraid of ghosts and monsters.

When Jiang Yun Zhu heard this, she smiled wryly.
These two were more terrifying than ghosts.
Wherever they went, there were no undead.
Now they came to Changshi Village for what?

Suddenly, she remembered a tragedy that happened in Lu Prefecture.

Gu Yan Zhou, yes, that's the name.
She said that she found it a little familiar when she heard it.
It turned out to be him!

Also, she had wondered before, wasn't Xu Qing Shan in Qinghe Village in the dream? Why was he in Changshi Village now.
It couldn’t be?

With these associations in her mind, Jiang Yun Zhu felt like falling into an ice cellar.
