Fu Youqin slightly frowned as she looked at Chu XiangTian’s actions, but this was not the time to think about that. She also agreed with Wen Tian. “This is Wen family’s private matter. Chu gongzi doesn’t need to put yourself at risk.”
Chu XiangTian was an official, but Fu Youqin was not sure whether he had a comrade. There was no need to drag him down at a time like this.
“Rest assured, Furen. My men will be here soon.” Chu XiangTian tried to make them less worried. He had Wen Ji move them back a little, while he continued standing in front.
The soldiers were already impatient. This was not official business. They were here because Wen Boli promised each of them fifty silver taels after this was over. That’s why they went to a lot of trouble to come here. But in the end, Wen Tian and his mother did not commit any crime. It was better to end this as soon as possible.
The leader of the soldiers waved his hand and the soldiers behind him withdrew the swords from their waists. Twenty glinting swords pointed at them.
“This is the last time. Go with us obediently or don’t blame the sword for not having eyes!”
Chu XiangTian’s eyes slightly narrowed. He waved his hand and his muscles tightened. The two sides were in a state of mutual hostility. The atmosphere was explosive.
Zhou Chuanqing brought a troop of soldiers wearing armor and stood in front of Chu XiangTian. The two troops of soldiers were in direct confrontation.
“So slow.” Chu XiangTian put his hand down and muttered in dissatisfaction.
Zhou Chuanqing: “……”
Wei Yang waved his hand. The twenty soldiers were tied up. The leader swallowed a mouthful of saliva and shouted in an empty show of strength, “Who are you?! You dare to arrest government officials?!”
Wei Yang was beaming. His face was a bit round. He looked amiable and very easy to talk to, but the words he said made one’s internal organs pain.
“I’m your ancestor! I’m under imperial orders to kill you dogs! Do you think that I have the guts?”
The leader’s hands shook. He stared at him and couldn’t speak.
Wei Yang looked at his expression and his mood improved.
“Assistant Minister of the Ministry of Justice, Wei Yang, is under imperial orders to investigate Nanming County’s corruption. Anyone associated with Nanming County’s senior provincial official will stand trial.”
The people he brought were all elite troops. Once he finished speaking, they immediately and decisively detained everyone, including the spectating Wen Boli.
