Wei Yang had already brought the people to Sifang Town’s yamen. After the county magistrate was arrested, he directly settled into the county magistrate’s office. The twenty or so soldiers and Wen Boli and them were kneeling in court.
The soldiers he brought separated into two groups and stood on either side. Their cold and sharp eyes looked over them.
Chu XiangTian walked inside with big steps. The soldier closest to him saw him and immediately greeted, “General.”
Chu XiangTian looked at him and punched his shoulder. He asked in displeasure, “Why did you people come here?” They almost ruined his happy deed.
The simple and honest smiling man was called Yang Dashi. He said roughly, “The imperial capital is so boring. When are we going back to the border?”
“Go back yourself.”
There was no war at the border for nearly a year now. Otherwise, Chu XiangTian wouldn’t have been transferred back in secret. He must finish the case and immediately be free and easy when he returned to the border. He had to stay in the imperial capital now and behave with propriety everywhere. The old imperial censors wouldn’t hold back if he did something wrong.
But it was different now. He felt that the little Shaoye was more fun than fighting a war. He couldn’t wait to put the person always under his eyes and inside his skin.
Once he thought of Wen Tian, Chu XiangTian remembered that he came here for serious business.
He flexed his wrists and walked over to Wen Boli. Wen Boli’s face was ashen as he knelt. Bai Ruihe leaned against Wen Zeming. Her eyes were red, as if she had cried.
“Wen Boli?” Chu XiangTian bowed his head slightly and called him.
Wen Boli was facing the light and couldn’t clearly see his expression. But he had heard the conversation earlier. That soldier called him “general.” His eyes lit up and he straightened his body to plead, “Chu Gongzi, I am Youling’s father. I’m just an ordinary businessman. Didn’t Wei daren make a mistake?”
Chu XiangTian took a step back and looked at him in disgust. At this time, this man still used Wen Tian as a shield.
Wen Boli saw that he didn’t speak and continued, “If you don’t believe it, you can call Youling here. It was all a misunderstanding earlier. I was confused by this woman. That’s why I treated Youling and his mother like that.”
Bai Ruihe and Wen Zeming looked at him in disbelief.
Wen Boli didn’t even turn to look at them. He continued, “I also don’t know the provincial county official. I have his recommendation letter because Bai Ruihe knows the provincial county official’s furen. It has nothing to do with me.”
He seemed to speak very truthfully. He extricated himself from the situation and pushed all the charges onto Bai Ruihe.
