ternoon, they hid in the closet in my bedroom and attacked me when I was not paying attention.
I saw that their faces were very strange and they were familiar with the house.
It looks like they may have been prepared for a long time.”

Wen Chi said: “Since they were prepared, would they still let us go easily?”

“…” Hua Zi Zang was at a loss for words and finally sighed after a long while, “If I had known earlier, I would not have driven away the two people that Prince Xuan arranged for me.
I thought I was causing trouble to Prince Xuan but I never thought that I would be harming myself.

Wen Chi didn’t speak any more.


He was very uncomfortable, not only the pain in the back of his neck was unbearable but also his limbs were terribly numb.
He really wanted to move his hands and feet, but his body was bound tightly so it was very difficult to move.

After struggling for a long time, he finally gave up and leaned against the wall resignedly, silently observing the surrounding environment.

This should be a firewood shed.
Right opposite them, firewood was piled up and the ground was also covered with dry branches.
The entire firewood shed had no windows and only a wooden door that was not very strong was closed tightly.

The woodshed was similar to the one in Wen Chi’s compound and it seemed that they had not yet left Hua Zi Zang’s compound, which meant that they had not yet left the Zhou Mansion.

“Young Master Hua.” Wen Chi suddenly remembered, “Do you know martial arts?”

Hearing this, Hua Zi Zang said awkwardly: “Sorry, I don’t practice martial arts.”

Wen Chi paused, and then thought of another idea: “Do you think if we call out for help now, we can call for General Lin?”

Hua Zi Zang thought about it for a while, then sighed: “Although General Lin lives not far away, he may not be close enough to hear us.
Unfortunately, this place is remote and there are no other people living nearby.
Even if there is someone, I’m afraid we’ll be in trouble before they get here.”

Despite what he said, they couldn’t just sit there and wait for death.


They tried to untie the ropes on each other but the ropes were tied too tightly and knotted that they could not move the ropes even though their fingertips were almost skinned.

Later, Wen Chi tried to stand up with the help of Hua Zi Zang but before he could stand up straight, he heard the wooden door of the firewood shed creak and a tall and burly man walked in from outside.

Wen Chi and Hua Zi Zang froze at the same time.

Seeing this, the man was stunned for a moment, then stepped forward and pushed Wen Chi to the ground.

Wen Chi fell on the ground but fortunately, Hua Zi Zang used his body to cushion him in time, so that he didn’t fall too badly.

“Young Master Hua, Young Master Lin, you are all smart people, be sensible, so that you can save yourself from suffering.” The man threatened viciously, then picked up the handkerchief that Hua Zi Zang had spat out on the ground before, without saying a word and stuffed it back into Hua Zi Zang’s mouth.

Hua Zi Zang: “…”

Wen Chi saw that Hua Zi Zang’s face turned blue instantly and he even wanted to vomit.
