At this time on the mountain, Wang Bin's eyes were bloodshot.
Seeing Zhu Liang coming in, he immediately asked, “How did it go?”

Zhu Liang shook his head.
Many were arrested, but there was no sign of Qilin Guards at all.

Tentatively, he spoke, “General, maybe you're overthinking.
That person didn't come to Wuling Mine at all.”

When he mentioned Shen Feng Ming, he didn't dare to call him by his name.
Instead, he used ‘that person’, for fear of irritating Wang Bin .

Wang Bin paused and asked, “Is there any news from Zhaoping County?”

“The news has just arrived.
All the traces over there have been wiped out.
The Qilin Guards won't find anything at all.
General, rest assured.”

“I’m asking, has, Shen, that person gone to Zhaoping County!” Wang Bin roared.

Zhu Liang was slightly startled.
Then he shook his head.
That person didn't show up in Zhaoping County.

“He must be in the Wuling Mine.” Anxious, Wang Bin stood up at once.
With an agitated expression, “He must be.
He must be.”

As a result, more defenders searched around.

At 3p.m., the rain stopped, but the black clouds in the sky didn’t disperse.
It seemed like it would rain soon.

The old monk thanked Jiang Family again and left.

As expected, the rain lasted until the next morning.
Chen was thankful that hulatang wasn’t made yesterday.
As they couldn’t set up the stall and it would have gone to waste.

On the other hand, Jiang Yun Zhu had a rare sleep in.
Lying on the bed, she listened to the drizzle outside the window.
She was going over the plan she had made yesterday.
Feeling that there were no loopholes, she got up.

At 9a.m., the rain stopped.
and everything seemed to be washed and appeared quite fresh.
She told Mrs.
Chen that she wanted to go for a walk.

Chen didn't mind.

Jiang Yun Zhu went out and looked to the west.
Sure enough, there were two steep peaks there; one tall and one short.
The tall one went straight up and straight down.
Surrounding it was all smooth stone walls.
It was estimated that people can't go up at all.
The short one was next to it.
The slope was slightly gentle.

There were mountains everywhere in Wuling County.
She didn't really notice these two before and didn't know that there was a temple on that mountain.

Jiang Yun Zhu walked over there.

She currently traveled nearly three kilometers to the town every day.
She had become proficient in walking.
A distance of five or so kilometers was nothing.
She had already reached the foot of the mountain.

There was an official road here, but there were very few people.
Occasionally one or two can be seen.
Most of them were collecting firewood.
There were mines on other mountains.
People weren’t allowed to go up the mountain.
This Xifeng mountain wasn't guarded, so many people came here to collect firewood.

Jiang Yun Zhu followed a path up the mountain.
Halfway there, she saw three people hurrying down from above.

There were two old monks, one of whom was carrying a young monk on his back.

That old monk was the one she saw yesterday.

“Wen Xing, I'll take Mi Sheng to see a doctor in a while.
You can go to the town to see if you can change money so that you can get him some medicine.” The old monk Wen Jue said.

“Senior Brother, I understand.” The other person agreed.

Jiang Yun Zhu immediately understood what had happened and looked behind the old monk.
Sure enough, the young monk was only five or six years old and his face was flushed red.

“Master.” She greeted the old monk.

The old monk recognized her, but he didn't have time to talk to her at the moment.
He only uttered, “Miss?”

“Send him to see a doctor first.” Jiang Yun Zhu said.

“Okay.” The old monk replied.

The four of them arrived in the town together.
Then the old monk named Wen Xing left, probably to gather alms.
Jiang Yun Zhu followed the old monk to Guangshan Hall.

“Ten coins for a consultation.” The clerk of Guangshan Hall stated.

The old monk fumbled in his sleeve for a long time, but only found six coins, “Almsgiver, can you…”

“Our Guangshan hall isn't a charity hall.
If everyone is like you, wouldn't we starve to death? Who will check you then?” The clerk had just been scolded by the manager in the morning and was in a bad mood.
So his speech was cold.

The old monk shivered.
He touched the young monk's forehead to check the temperature as he looked out, hoping that Junior Brother would come back soon with enough money collected to see the doctor.

“I have it here.” Jiang Yun Zhu said.
With that said, she took out four coins and put them on the counter.

The old monk looked at her, “Almsgiver.”

“Hurry up and see the doctor.” Jiang Yun Zhu urged.

The old monk nodded and handed the ten coins to the clerk.

The clerk took the money and told them to go to the next room.

The old monk walked over there with the young monk on his back.
Jiang Yun Zhu followed.

“He caught a cold.
His condition was very serious.
Need to take medicine quickly and not catch a cold again.” The doctor said, writing out a prescription.

The old monk was going to pick up the prescription.

“Master, let me go.
You take care of him.” Jiang Yun Zhu knew that he had no money and he couldn't get the medicine even after getting the prescription.
So she took the prescription and went outside to get the medicine.

“Thank you Almsgiver, thank you Almsgiver.” The old monk really didn't expect that a girl he met by chance yesterday would be willing to help him like this.

It was a big problem in any era to treat diseases and consume medicine.
A few packs of medicine cost Jiang Yun Zhu two hundred wen coin.
This was almost worth what Jiang Family earned in one morning.
But a human life was at stake.
What’s more, Jiang Yun Zhu had to discuss a matter with the old monk.
So she didn't mind.

At this time, the old monk was standing at the door with the young monk on his back.

Jiang Yun Zhu went over and signaled that she had finished grabbing the medicine.

“Thank you, Almsgiver.
If not, the child's life might be lost.” The old monk thanked her again.

“Master, you don't need to be too polite.
Let's go back and make medicine for him first.” Jiang Yun Zhu said.

The two walked out.
When they reached the entrance of the town, they saw Wen Xing was begging for alms.
Some kind-hearted people found him, an old monk, pitiful and gave him a wen or two.
Medicine cost a lot of money.
How could this be enough? .

Wen Xing was so anxious that hot sweat broke out on his face.

“Junior Brother.” The old monk called him.

“Senior Brother.” Wen Xing came over.

“This female almsgiver helped Mi Sheng pay for the consultation and medicine in advance.” The old monk explained that Jiang Yun Zhu paid in advance, meaning that when they had money in the future, they would return it to Jiang Yun Zhu.

“Thank you, Almsgiver.” Wen Xing clasped his hands together, feeling grateful to Jiang Yun Zhu.

The four of them hurried back again.
After a while, they arrived at the mountain, where three people were waiting anxiously.
There were two old and one young.

“Go in first.” Before the three asked questions, the old monk said.

After entering the temple, the old monk put the young monk down.
One took care of him.
One took the medicine to cook at the back.
The few people busied away.

Jiang Yun Zhu looked around.

This was a double-entry temple.
Not too big.
Among the side halls in the front, a goddess riding a white tiger was enshrined in the hall in the middle.
The goddess was wearing a red celestial dress with a phoenix posture and expressive eyebrows.

It was a pity that after a long time, the paint on the statue was very mottled and the demeanor of the goddess was damaged.

This was the Heavenly Daughter Goddess, right? Jiang Yun Zhu thought.
She had never heard of this goddess.
In ancient times, there were two goddesses with names similar to hers.
One was the Heavenly Daughter Nuba, the daughter of the Yellow Emperor.
It was said that she was dressed in blue robe and the place where she was will be dry for thousands of kilometers.

There was also the Goddess of the Empyrean a.k.a Ninth Heaven Goddess.
She had a human head and a bird body.
She was a Taoist.

It was unknown who this Heavenly Daughter Goddess was.
There was no corresponding figure in Buddhism.
It may be someone who the villagers built a temple to worship in gratitude for her kindness.

Behind the temple was the place where the monks live.
This temple hadn't been repaired for an unknown period of time.
Almost all the side halls in the front have collapsed.
There were also dilapidated houses in the back.
It rained all night yesterday.
Now there were almost no dry places.
The cold wind blew, blowing straight through the heart.

No wonder the little monk caught a cold.

“Thank you.” The old monk came over and thanked Jiang Yun Zhu again.
Seeing her staring at the broken house, he sighed.

There was no incense in the temple nor newcomers coming.
When the old ones dies, that was all there was to it.
But the two young ones? Don't know if there are any kind people who want to adopt them.
It was just that they were abandoned in the first place and were at an awkward age.
So they might not be able to find a family.

Thinking of this, the old monk felt depressed.

At this moment, Jiang Yun Zhu asked gently, “Master, do you want this temple to flourish again?”

The old monk couldn't believe his ears at all.
What she was saying.

Jiang Yun Zhu thought the old monk was getting old and didn't hear her clearly.
So she asked again, “Master, do you want this temple to flourish again?”
