h good intentions, organize someone to entertain them.”

“Yes, County Lord!” Monk Hui Shi bowed.

“Yes, County Lord!” Zhao Guang immediately agreed.

Actually, it was normal for him not to know how powerful Cui Heng was.

Although he had been robbing tombs for many years and had practiced some martial arts, he had only reached the level of Internal Nurturing. He had not even cultivated to Qi Sensing, so he naturally had an instinctive fear of an army of hundreds of thousands.

Moreover, he had never seen Cui Heng ignite the flames.

Fang Min was very surprised right now.

She hadnt expected the county office to come knocking on her door after only half a day of asking around.

She had clearly asked someone and gave him five taels of silver and instructed him not to make a fuss.

Five taels of silver was not a small sum. It was the income of most ordinary farmers for half a year.

However, she did not feel the slightest displeasure.

Receiving money but still reporting it to the government meant that the people here trusted the government very much. Otherwise, they would not have done such a thing.

This proved that the information she had obtained earlier was indeed correct.

The new county magistrate of Juhe County was extremely popular, and he was also working for the good of Juhe County. It should be much easier to cooperate with such a county magistrate to resist the military disaster.

But then something even more unexpected happened.

Her and her junior sisters identities had been exposed.

The head of the constable officers who had brought them over directly called out their names.

“His footsteps are steady and his aura is deep. This persons martial cultivation is extraordinary. Perhaps he has already reached the Qi Condensation Realm.”

Fang Min sized up Monk Hui Shi, who was disguised as the head of the constables. She was very surprised. “Such an expert is actually the head of the constables in the small Juhe County?”

She keenly realized that Juhe County was definitely not simple. The new county magistrate of Juhe County was definitely not ordinary either. This made her feel inexplicably flustered.

The feeling came from the uncertainty of the unknown.

Fang Min looked at Zhou Caiwei beside her and realized that this girl was focused on eating candied haws. She still looked carefree, so she could not help but sigh.

Fortunately, this girl was extremely talented and had superb martial arts skills. Otherwise, she would have been deceived countless times by that distracted look.

“Officer, are we going to see the county magistrate?” Fang Min asked tentatively.

“No.” Monk Huishis attitude was extremely cold as he said indifferently, “The county magistrate is busy and doesnt have time to receive the two of you today. However, Minister Zhao has already found a place for you as a temporary residence. The county magistrate should receive you tomorrow.”

Cui Heng really did not have the time. After obtaining the martial arts manual that Hui Shi had copied, he had become obsessed with the study of the use of Dharmic powers.

In the past few days, he had already developed many novel and powerful techniques.

He would probably not be done until tomorrow.

“Thank you, Officer. Since the county magistrate is busy, we can wait.” Fang Min nodded.

Although she wanted to see the county magistrate as soon as possible, she understood better. The best way to work with someone was to follow their rules.

“Captain, Captain!”

At this moment, there was an urgent shout from behind. A constable ran over, panting.

“What is it?” Hui Shi asked with a frown.

“The brothers at the city gate just sent a message. They said, said…” The constable took a deep breath and said, “They said that a large number of refugees have escaped here. Im afraid there are three or four thousand of them!”

“Theres been a good harvest everywhere this year. Where did the three or four thousand refugees come from?” Hui Shis eyebrows rose in confusion.

“Its the people from Dachang County in the West!” The constables expression became a little fearful. “Captain, do you think King Yans army has already occupied Dachang County? Were next!”

“Shut up!” Hui Shi glared at him and said to the constables beside him, “The two of you, take these two girls to the residence arranged by Minister Zhao. You two, go and report the situation to County Deputy Lu.”

Then, he said to the constable who came to report, “Lets go. Bring me to the city gate to take a look.”
