Qian Cang followed Chen Tong to the county office with a bitter expression.
He was very flustered now and did not know what he was going to face.
Fang Nanzheng relied on the horse that Liu Litao had given him and was always a step faster than him!
As soon as he arrived at the county office, Qian Cang heard a cold snort.
Then, a middle-aged man with an ancient appearance and a long beard walked out of the governors reception hall.
Qian Cang looked at this person curiously, but he met this persons angry gaze.
He immediately felt a pain in his eyes and hurriedly lowered his head.
However, this person did not care about him.
He walked past him and left.
“A Minor Grandmaster, and its even a true Grandmaster!” Qian Cang was shocked.
To be able to make people feel pain with just his gaze, this was at least an expert who had refined True Qi.
“Stop looking and follow me in,” Chen Tong said indifferently.

“Oh, right, yes, Lord Commander!” Qian Cang hurriedly nodded.
Just now, he was shocked and subconsciously stopped in his tracks.
At this moment, Liu Litao, had just put down his teacup.
When he saw Chen Tong return with Qian Cang, he smiled and said, “Everyone, take a seat.”
Chen Tong sat down without any restraint.
Qian Cang looked around in surprise, but he did not see Fang Nanzheng.
He could not help but feel puzzled, but he still sat down nervously.
“Are you looking for Old Fang” Liu Litao looked at Qian Cang with a faint smile.
“…Ah!” Qian Cang stood up nervously and said with a trembling voice, “Governor, I, I…”
“Theres no need to be afraid.
I already know.” Liu Litao laughed.
“Youve already sided with the county magistrate, right”
“Lord Governor, dont believe that Fang Nanzheng.
He is spouting nonsense.” Qian Cang thought that Fang Nanzheng had already lied about him and hurriedly dragged out the excuse he had prepared.
“Lord, although I joined County Magistrate Juhe, it was actually for…”
“Theres no need to say anything.” Liu Litao raised his hand and interrupted Qian Cang.
He smiled and said, “Ive already planned to join County Lord Cui before you.”
“Ah Ah!” Qian Cang was stunned.
He opened his mouth but did not know what to say.
It was as if his mouth was stuck.
The words he had thought of to persuade Governor Liu along the way were completely useless at this moment.
How could a county governor kneel so quickly
“I also intend to follow the Governor and join County Lord Cui.” Chen Tong nodded.
“Ah, this!” Qian Cang was even more confused.
There was usually a lot of tension between Chen Tong and Liu Litao.
Now, they had actually reached a consensus
Was he dreaming
“Fang Nanzheng has been executed by me.” Liu Litao suddenly spoke and sneered, “To think that Ive always been so kind to him.
This time, he actually came back to harm me.
He said that Juhe County won because they were lucky enough to encounter a great change in the weather and wanted me to pluck the peaches.
Hes trying to kill me!”
“He was executed!” Qian Cangs eyes widened in surprise.
“Governor, do you already know that County Lord Cui can summon the wind and rain”
“You dont think that the two of you are the only ones I sent out to investigate, do you” Liu Litao stood up and smiled.
“As unbelievable as it is, when everyone says that, you have to believe it.”
At this point, he paused and said, “Go back and prepare.
In ten days, follow me to Juhe County to welcome the new governor of Lu County.”
“Yes, yes! Thank you, Governor!” Qian Cang felt relieved when he heard this.
He hurriedly bowed and took his leave.
There were only Liu Li Tao and Chen Tong in the guest hall.
“I saw Sun Panshi leave just now.
Did he come to talk to you about the Taichong Sects proposal again” Chen Tong looked at Liu Litao and asked.
The Taichong Sect was the strongest sect in Lu County.
It had only been established for 200 years, and its strength was slightly weaker than the Yuhua Sword Pavilion.
However, they did not have experts at the peak of the Inner World realm.
However, they had a few Xiantian Grandmasters and could not be underestimated.
The middle-aged man who left just now was called Sun Panshi.
He was the External Affairs Deacon of the Taichong Sect, a Qi Condensation Realm Grandmaster.
“Yes.” Liu Litao sat down and sneered, “Sun Panshi is shameless.
He actually said that he could help me get the position of Fengzhous governor.
How dare a mere large sect of Lu County boast like that”
“Didnt Lord Governor covet the position of Fengzhous governor all along” Chen Tong said with a smile.
“Why are you suddenly so afraid”
“I cant, I cant.” Liu Litao shook his head and sighed.
“Chen Tong, weve worked together for so many years.
You know me.
I just want to have some ability to protect myself in this chaotic world.
I also want to earn some money to live a good life.
I dont want to contribute to the people under my rule, but I dont want to make any mistakes.
I just want them to live and work in peace.
I dont have much to pursue.
In the past, I wanted to be a state governor because I felt that it would be safer to be a state governor.
After all, I control the military and political power of a state, and my status can be said to be that of a King.
Nothing can protect me better than this.
But… I received an urgent report last night that Cao Quan, the Governor of Fengzhou, was assassinated.
That position is not easy to hold.
There are too many people watching.
Its not as safe as being a county governor.”
“But its also not safe to be a county governor anymore, right” Chen Tong saw through Liu Litaos thoughts.
“Otherwise, you wouldnt be in such a hurry to give up your position as county governor.
You dont even investigate things like summoning wind and rain and Immortals.”
“Hehe, didnt you see it How many times has the deacon from Taichong come looking for me” Liu Litao laughed.
“Other than the Taichong Sect, there are also a few people from other counties who want to push me, a pushover, to the position of state governor.
As long as youre a county governor, youll be treated as someone who can compete for the position of state governor, especially someone like me whos easy to control at a glance.
I value my life and dont want to get involved in this mess.
Its better to let that Immortal be the county governor.”
“In the past, those martial sects werent so enthusiastic about the position of County Governor.” Chen Tong frowned and said, “Did something happen”
“Its not an accident.
Its been like this since ancient times.” Liu Litao shook his head.
“Theres a rumor that I only remembered last night.
Its said that every hundred years, something shocking will happen.
Furthermore, only people at the level of the County Governor and the top of the Inner World Realm can participate in this matter.
The Taichong Sect, Heavenly Sword Sect, and He Family of Pingchuan… These are all local forces without top powers.”
“An earth-shattering event” Chen Tong fell into deep thought when he heard this.
He said in a low voice, “A hundred years ago, the Immortal Dawn Sect suddenly announced the sealing of the mountain.
Could it be related to this”
“Immortal Dawn Sect” Liu Litao was stunned when he heard that.
He smiled and said, “You actually thought of this.
However, on careful thought, its indeed not impossible.”
“In that case, its really earth-shattering.” Chen Tong seemed to be quite emotional.
He had a younger sister who was weak and sickly when she was young.
She happened to meet a disciple of the Immortal Dawn Sect who passed by and was taken in as a disciple.
After that, she would come back to visit her family every ten years.
Therefore, he knew much more about the Immortal Dawn Sect than others.
He also knew how powerful Perfected Hengxia was a hundred years ago.
To be able to make such a powerful Immortal Dawn Sect suddenly seal the mountain, even someone as powerful as Perfected Hengxia had disappeared.
It was indeed earth-shattering.
Liu Litao did not know about this relationship and thought that Chen Tong was just lamenting.
He said, “Its better if we dont participate in such an earth-shattering matter.”
“Thats true.” Chen Tong nodded in agreement.
“With the end of the century approaching, Im afraid only an Immortal can become the governor.”
After experiencing a great harvest from scaring Zen Master Dekong,
Cui Heng was planning to change his plans to deal with King Yans army.
Originally, he wanted to let King Yans army come to Juhe County and use the same technique to gather a large wave of emotions.
But now, he has changed his mind.
Compared to being directly destroyed by a storm, the emotions felt when facing something one could not understand were clearly stronger.
In that case, theres no need to wait for King Yans army to arrive.
I can just go over directly, Cui Heng thought.
Although Xiling County was 250 kilometers away from Juhe County, to him, who had already reached the Grand Completion Golden Core Realm, this distance could not even be considered a walk.
After all, he could already break through the sound barrier and fly when he was at the Foundation Establishment realm.
However, before going, Cui Heng still had to see Xu Bailu.
This beautiful Daoist nun had sent him a visiting card this morning and wanted to invite him to her residence for lunch today.
When it was almost noon, Cui Heng arrived at the residence where Xu Bailu and her disciples lived.
As soon as he entered, he could smell the rich fragrance.
It was the fragrance of food.
However, after walking in, there was a faint feminine fragrance.
Xu Bailu, Fang Min, and Zhou Caiwei were already waiting in the guest hall.
When the three of them saw Cui Heng, they hurriedly stood up and bowed.
“Greetings, County Lord.”
The three of them had different styles and were all bright and beautiful.
The beautiful Daoist nun with an otherworldly aura, the tall and knowledgeable beauty, and the petite and lively girl bowed to him.
If an ordinary person saw this scene, they would probably be at a loss.
Of course, Cui Heng was not an ordinary person.
To a certain extent, he could no longer be considered a human.
Hence, he sat down without changing his expression.
“What a sumptuous spread.” Cui Heng looked at the dishes on the table.
They were not the local dishes of Juhe County, so he smiled at Xu Bailu and said, “Is this a special dish from the area around Yuhua Sword Pavilion”
“Master made it herself!” Zhou Caiwei was straightforward and said directly, “Master made it with great effort, afraid that you would be dissatisfied.”
“Wretched girl!” Xu Bailu cursed in her heart.
She glared at the little girl and hurriedly said to Cui Heng, “County Lord, dont mind her.
Children like to talk nonsense.”
“Its fine.” Cui Heng smiled and said, “Lets eat.
Otherwise, itll be a waste of your good intentions if it becomes cold.”
“Alright!” Zhou Caiwei could not wait to eat.
Fang Min, who was at the side, remained silent.
She knew that this lunch was not just for a simple meal.
Her master had something important to say.
After dinner, Xu Bailu suddenly stood up.
She had drank a bit of wine, and her beautiful face was a little red.
She said to Cui Heng very respectfully, “County Lord, Im ashamed to say this, but I have a request…”
