Chapter 94 There Must Not Be A Second Hongwu
After deciding to go to Lu County City to save Wang Jinsheng, Wang Qinghe seemed to have become a different person.
The thick sense of caution that had been on him disappeared.
It was as if he had been agitated by something.
His entire body became sharp, as if he was about to charge into battle.
Moreover, he showed great confidence in this operation.
He no longer looked like he was worried that there was a trap in Lu County.
It was as if his heart had been baptized and changed greatly.
However, advancing bravely was one thing, but Wang Qinghe was not reckless.
On the way, he did a lot of analysis on his enemy, Cui Heng.
From what he knew, what kind of person was Cui Heng
/ please keep reading on MYB0XNOVEL.C0M
To describe it in one word, he was “arrogant”!
A mere County Governor of Lu actually dared to imprison Wang Jinsheng and Wang Qingquan.
He was simply courting death.
Even the top experts of the martial world would definitely die.
Even a Deity Realm expert was not worthy of going against a top Family like the Langya Wang Clan alone.
Only a fool would do such a thing.
Therefore, Wang Qinghe had always firmly believed that there must be a certain force or group standing behind Cui Heng.
These forces were hiding in the dark and pushing this arrogant person to the front.
It was unknown if they wanted to use him as a spear or as a scapegoat.
Based on these premises, Wang Qinghe made a judgment,
If he did not uproot those hidden forces, it would be meaningless to just kill Cui Heng.
Soon, a second “Cui Heng” would be pushed out.
He also informed Xie Beixing, who was rushing to Lu County with him.
Xie Beixing was the third head of the Xie Family of Pingshan.
He was the governor of Langya County and the third brother of Wang Qinghes wife, the Xie family.
Their relationship was usually quite good.
When they were young, they even went to brothels together.
However, some time ago, the two of them had some conflicts because of whether they should save Wang Jinsheng.
Now that Wang Qinghe had also set off to save Wang Jinsheng, they naturally reconciled.
At this moment, the two of them had already arrived at Fengzhou, but they were still a distance away from Lu County.
Moreover, it was already late.
They could only set up camp and rest.
The Wang Family of Langya and the Xie Family of Pingshan joined forces to go to Lu County to save people.
It was naturally impossible for only two people to go.
That was courting death.
Since the other party dared to imprison Wang Jinsheng, it meant that he was not afraid of the Wang Clan of Langya.
If their reputation could not intimidate the other party, then sending only two people over would definitely be no different from being sent to die.
Therefore, Wang Qinghe and Xie Beixing both brought their own private soldiers.
This meant that they would not be traveling very quickly.
They had to set up camp and rest at night.
In the temporary tent.
After Xie Beixing heard Wang Qinghes guess, he nodded in agreement and said in a low voice, “Brother-in-law, your guess is very reasonable.
This time, not only do we have to get Shenger out, we have to eliminate the other party completely!”
“We must find those forces hiding in the dark.
I want to see which dogs actually dare to support this reckless Governor of Lu County!” “Thats right!” Wang Qinghe said in a low voice, “Its fine if we dont send out our troops this time.
Since weve sent out our troops, we have to wipe out everything and eliminate them completely!
“By the way, I heard that you previously sent someone to Lu County to do some investigations.
Did you find any useful clues Whats the background of the Governor, Cui Heng”
“Thats true, but we didnt gain much.” Xie Beixing nodded at first, then shook his head.
“Cui Heng distributed many merchants businesses of the aristocratic families to the local people to gain popularity.
Therefore, very few people are willing to reveal information about him to strangers.
However, there are still a few people who can confirm that Cui Heng has the Lotus Flower Monasterys shadow behind him.
He has the Lotus Flower Monasterys direct disciple by his side.”
“So its that group of bald donkeys!” Wang Qinghes expression turned extremely gloomy.
“They failed to help that piece of trash Wang Tong occupy Fengzhou.
Now, they want to give up on cooperating with our Wang Family and independently support this Governor of Lu County as the new State Overseer and get their hands on the Immortal Opportunities”
“That Wang Tong is indeed supported by your Wang family.” Xie Beixing laughed when he heard this.
“I had this guess before, but I never had any evidence.”
“Hes just a piece of trash from a distant branch.
He was sent out hundreds of years ago.” Wang Qinghes face revealed disdain as he said in a low voice, “Originally, we planned to let him seize Fengzhou and occupy the Immortal Opportunities here so that my Langya Family wouldnt be too obvious in controlling the Immortal Opportunities of the two states.
If thats not the case, why would a sacred Buddhist ground like the Grand Prosperity Monastery and the Lotus Flower Monastery help Wang Tong I didnt expect this trash to fail.
Its said that it was because of some natural disaster”
“Yes, its said that a meteor fell from the sky and smashed him to death.” Xie Beixing nodded with a sneer.
Actually, the incident in Xiling County had spread quite widely.
Wang Qinghe and Xie Beixing had also heard about it in Yanzhou, but by the time it spread there, the matter had long been distorted.
The version that was circulating in Yanzhou was already unrecognizable.
When the two armies faced each other, King Yan clearly had the absolute advantage, but he suddenly encountered a fiery meteor falling from the sky and they were completely wiped out.
There was no credibility at all.
Even if they believed it, they would only think that King Yans army was too unlucky.
“Since Wang Tong died in a natural disaster, its normal for Lotus Flower Monastery to be indignant.
However, he shouldnt have dared to go against our Wang Family!”
Wang Qinghe stood up and sneered.
“This time, you and I have brought enough elite soldiers.
After we attack Lu County and save Shenger, well lead our troops to Lotus Flower Monastery to ask whats going on!” “Thats right.
With such an army around, even if there are Deity Realm experts in Lu County, they wont dare to compete with us!” Xie Beixing also laughed loudly.
“I want to personally kill that Cui brat to avenge my good nephew!”
Both of them were very confident.
Even though they had already predicted that Lu County might be a trap, they were still confident.
This came from the soldiers they had brought.
Wang Qinghe brought 500 people, and Xie Beixing brought 2,000.
Although it seemed like Xie Beixing had more people, Wang Qinghes 500 people were actually the main combat force.
Although Xie Beixings 2,000 people were all elite soldiers, only 200 of them knew martial arts, and they were only at the Qi Condensation Realm.
As for Wang Qinghes 500 people, they were all well-equipped.
They were wearing refined iron armor and holding tempered weapons.
Every one of them even were Tendon Transformation realm martial cultivators.
In the pugilistic world, a Tendon Transformation realm cultivator could be considered a hero.
He could even be an elder in some small sects.
Above that was the Marrow Cleansing realm, which was enough for one to be called a first-rate expert!
This was 500 armored and armed Tendon Transformation experts, and an elite force at that, who were proficient in battle formations that could form a formation to charge and kill the enemy!
These 500 people were enough to easily defeat the so-called tens of thousands of ordinary soldiers!
Even a Deity Realm powerhouse would be frightened away on the spot.
If he didnt run, he would die!
“Report!” At this moment, the voice of a messenger came from outside.
“Second Master, a group of merchants has arrived outside.
They want you to help them!”
This was clearly a soldier from the Langya Wang Family.
He was addressing Wang Qinghe as Second Master.
“Merchants” Wang Qinghe frowned when he heard that.
Just as he was about to give the order to chase them away, he suddenly had a thought and said in a low voice, “Let them in to see me.”
“Yes!” The messenger left.
“You want to ask these merchants about Cui Heng and Lu County” Xie Beixing was a little surprised.
“This place is quite far from Lu County, and its not around the Hong River.
Im afraid the nearby merchants dont know much about Lu County.”
“No.” Wang Qinghe shook his head and said, “During the day, we passed by Wucheng County and Changhe County in front.
You didnt pay attention to the conversations of the commoners there.
Almost all of them were praising Cui Heng.
This is definitely not normal.”
Generally speaking, there would definitely be administrative malpractice in the dozen or so counties under a Prefecture.
Therefore, most of the commoners would be dissatisfied with the governor.
Those who were slightly better might not feel much, and they would neither scold nor praise him.
However, the citizens of Wucheng County and Changhe County were actually praising Cui Heng.
This was an extremely unusual matter.
This meant that the county governor had definitely done something to make the people grateful.
To be able to make so many ordinary people grateful, coupled with the information he had previously obtained about the situation in Lu County, made Wang Qinghe feel an inexplicable sense of familiarity.
A group of merchants was quickly brought in.
When they saw Wang Qinghe and Xie Beixing, they knelt on the ground and cried loudly.
They were originally from a large local clan and had rich assets.
However, the Governor of Lu County, Cui Heng, was a jinx who harmed people.
He forcefully bought their assets at 10% of the price, causing them to live like ordinary people.
It was simply a fate worse than death.
The more Wang Qinghe listened to this description, the more shocked he became.
His fists involuntarily clenched, and his body trembled.
Although Xie Beixing did not know much about this, he felt a sense of familiarity in those words, but he could not remember what it was.
After that, Wang Qinghe promised to punish the Governor of Lu County severely before letting this group of merchants leave.
Then, he looked at Xie Beixing beside him and said solemnly, “Do you find Cui Hengs actions very familiar”
“Its a little familiar, but I cant tell what it is.
I feel like Ive heard or seen it somewhere before.” Xie Beixing frowned and thought carefully.
“Heavenly King Hongwu!” Wang Qinghe directly pointed it out.
He gritted his teeth and said, “This is clearly what Heavenly King Hongwu did back then.
Its him, its him.
Thats right, its him!” “Oh my god!” Xie Beixings face instantly turned as pale as paper.
He trembled in fear and said in shock, “Thats right, thats right.
He killed the strong and divided the land… its Heavenly King Hongwu!”
The name Heavenly King Hongwu was the eternal nightmare of all the aristocratic families in the world.
It was a name that could stop children from crying at night.
It was a nightmare that they could never escape from!
Even though this was someone from nearly 300 years ago, his reputation still made the big clans tremble in fear!
“This fellow must be inextricably linked to Hongwu from back then!” Wang Qinghe said firmly, “Kill him.
We have to kill him before he grows up.
We cant let another Hongwu appear in this world!”
“Thats right, we must kill him!” Xie Beixing nodded solemnly.
“Should we inform the other families This is an earth-shattering matter!”
“No!” Wang Qinghe shook his head and said in a low voice, “Back then, Heavenly King Hongwu had the power to kill all the Deity Realm experts in the world.
If this Cui Heng is really related to Heavenly King Hongwu, we might be able to obtain Heavenly King Hongwus inheritance.
This is a supreme opportunity!”
“Indeed!” Xie Beixing agreed with this point of view and nodded.
“Then tomorrow morning, well immediately speed up our march and strive to take down Lu County before tomorrow evening!”
At the same time, in Lu County, Zhou Hongyi arrived in the night.
