Chapter 70.1

Wen Chi’s retching sound attracted everyone’s attention.

Liu De and Liu Shan, who were about to walk in, stopped at the same time.
When the two brothers turned their heads to look at Wen Chi, they no longer had the familiarity they had before, but had a few more complex emotions.

Their eyes lingered on Wen Chi’s brows for a moment and then Liu De said, “If Young Master Wen feels unwell, it’s better to wait outside.”

It was just as well that Wen Chi didn’t want to go in either.
After hearing Liu De’s words, he nodded immediately and retreated a distance of one meter: “Then I won’t go in.
I’ll wait for you outside.”

Shi Ye glanced at Wen Chi, whose expression was not so good and ordered: “Zuo Zhi, you stay too.”


So Wen Chi and Zuo Zhi stood outside the door together.

Zuo Zhi is not a talkative person, if Wen Chi doesn’t speak, she will remain silent.

Wen Chi watched the birds flying around in the open space in front of him boredly.

Those little birds are pretty cute, only about the size of a palm, with pink beaks and small bodies, black heads and tails, shiny little eyes and bouncing around on the ground.

Wen Chi felt that they looked familiar, as if he had seen them somewhere before…

Zuo Zhi noticed Wen Chi’s gaze, followed his gaze and said, “That’s a starling.”

“Rosy starling?” Wen Chi remembered that he had seen information about this bird on the Internet.
This kind of bird often gathers together in large groups, preying on insects and also eating grains and small fruits.
The locust flooded Jinzhou is also one of the predation targets of starlings.

Since there are starlings in Jinzhou, why is the plague of locusts still there?

“Rosy starlings?” Zuo Zhi smiled lightly, “That’s right, they are indeed pink.”

Wen Chi asked, “Are there many starlings in Jinzhou?”

Zuo Zhi said: “There used to be a lot, but nowadays there are probably fewer and fewer.”

Wen Chi was surprised: “Why?”

Zuo Zhi shook her head slightly: “Jinzhou is located in a remote location.
As the saying goes, the mountains are high and the emperor is far away.
It is difficult for the imperial court to reach here.
Therefore, the jurisdiction over Jinzhou is naturally not as strong as the capital and its surrounding areas.
Therefore, the jurisdiction over Jinzhou is naturally not as strong as in the capital and surrounding areas.
The government’s inaction has led to the people being unable to make a living and they have to rely on hunting to satisfy their hunger.
Wild rabbits and birds are the easiest to hunt

Hearing this, Wen Chi couldn’t help but fall into deep thought.

The locust plague alone is enough to cause headaches but there are so many messy problems in Jinzhou.
If you want to solve the locust plague, you must first solve the problem of food and clothing for the people.

To put it bluntly, it’s all about the lack of money…

Seeing that Wen Chi had been silent for a long time, Zuo Zhi added with a smile: “This is what I heard from the storyteller, I don’t know if it’s true or not, Young Master Wen don’t take it to heart.”

The two chatted a little more before falling silent.

Wen Chi turned his head to look at the closed door and was suddenly curious: “What are they doing inside? Is Zhang Heng injured?” A strong smell of blood wafted from the room just now and it seemed that the injury was serious.

Zuo Zhi’s expression was slightly complicated:  “Indeed, he was injured.”

“Is it serious?”

All his limbs were broken, almost all his internal organs were destroyed and he only had one breath left to hang on to, could it not be serious?

Zuo Zhi thought about it but still shook her head: “It’s not serious.”

As soon as she finished speaking, he heard a creak from behind him.

He saw the door open from the inside and a snow-clad Shi Ye came out, his long jet black hair was casually scattered behind him, his face was expressionless, his dark eyes were cold and his body was wrapped in a rich blood aura.

Liu De and Liu Shan followed behind, looking horrified, so frightened that they didn’t dare to take a breath.

Shi Ye slowly walked up to Wen Chi.

Stimulated by the bloody smell on Shi Ye’s body, Wen Chi stepped back quickly and at the same time retched while covering his mouth.

Seeing this, Shi Ye stopped immediately.

He stared at Wen Chi coldly and after a while, turned his head to Liu De: “Kill the rest of the hostages.”

“Yes.” After Liu De answered, then remembered something else and froze for a moment before asking, “Your Royal Highness, what about Governor Zhou’s wives and concubines…”

Shi Ye’s voice was so calm that there was no hesitation: “Kill them all.”

Originally, Wen Chi thought that Zhang Heng was hurt by those kidnappers but now as he listened to the conversation between Shi Ye and Liu De, he had a vague idea.

No wonder there was such a strong smell of blood in the room, no wonder Shi Ye also had such a strong smell of blood after coming out from him…

So Shi Ye not only killed Zhang Heng but also planned to kill all the hostages here, including the five women who rode in a carriage with them that day.

According to Liu De’s words, those five women should be the wives and concubines of Governor Zhou.

Wen Chi didn’t like Zhang Heng, especially after Zhang Heng cut his neck with a dagger, he could no longer have any sympathy for Zhang Heng, so he had no inner turmoil whether Zhang Heng was injured or dead.

But those hostages were pretty innocent…

He remembered that the five women were shaking with fear when they were in the carriage, like penguins huddled together to keep warm, they looked very pitiful, and they didn’t do anything bad.

Although Wen Chi thought like this, he did not say anything, he silently turned his head to the side.

Liu De and Liu Shan were about to leave when Shi Ye called out again.

The two brothers didn’t know why, but they didn’t dare to ask any more questions.
They stood there with eyes lowered, waiting for Shi Ye’s order.

Although Shi Ye didn’t move, his eyes fell on Wen Chi: “Do you have any objections?”
