Hu Mincais people were very unconvinced.
That person could not help but say, “No matter what, we are all going to the northern border to be officials together.
By doing this, you are eliminating others and thinking that you are the unique one.”
Shi Qingluo curled her lips.
“This sentence is more suited to describe your elders.
“Its because they want to eliminate their others that they deliberately threw us to the northern border.
We havent settled this score with you yet, but you have already started to argue with us.”
Xi Rui and Liang Youxiao were the most angry at the mention of this.
If it werent for your elders schemes and instigation, we wouldnt need to endure the long distance travel.
We would still have to suffer after going to the northern border.
“You guys are already not pleasing to the eye to begin with.
How do you have the face to ask for food
“Its already good enough that I didnt beat you up.
Your faces are too big.
“If you continue to talk nonsense, I will beat you up.”
After Shi Qingluos words, Xi Rui and the others started to curse again.
Hu Mincais people did not dare to argue with them anymore.
Instead, they were very aggrieved and did not speak.
They were really very aggrieved.
They could not help but feel a wave of resentment towards the elders in their family.
If you want to scheme against Xiao Hanzheng and the others, just scheme against Xiao Hanzheng and the others, why did you get them involved too
This half a months journey was a hardship that they had never experienced before.
When they thought of the fact that there was still nearly half a months journey ahead, they felt that there was nothing they could love in this life.
However, these people let this matter go.
After all, they were afraid that Shi Qingluo, Xi Rui, and the others would find fault with them and vent their resentments towards their elders on them.
They continued their journey, while Hu Mincais people all watched Shi Qingluo and the others show off their food.
They ate cold skin, iced milk tea, cold bowls, iced papaya, water rice, cold shrimp, and so on in a variety of ways every day.
Commander Wei and the others could bask in the glory, but just a little.
They often saw Shi Qingluo and the others playing cards and mahjong when they were bored, and they could only watch as they brought nothing with them…
It also made the rest of their journey even more painful.
Not only did they have to endure the long bumps and boredom on their bodies, but they also had to covet it every day and still dont have a share of such food.
Especially when they saw that the place was becoming more and more desolate and barren, they wanted to cry even more.
They were even more resentful of their elders who had caused them to be here.
Along the way, Hu Mincai had brought a few people along to play the devil twice, but they did not succeed.
Instead, Shi Qingluo taught them a lesson.
After that, they were all afraid when they saw Shi Qingluo.
After traveling for a month, they finally reached the northern border.
Then, everyone split up and headed to their assigned places.
Commander Weis people were also divided into several groups to escort them.
However, everyone wanted to escort Xiao Hanzhengs group.
There was food and entertainment, and they were more respectful towards them.
Unlike the other young masters who looked down on them with arrogance.
They were especially annoying.
In the end, Commander Wei had no choice but to get his people to draw lots to decide who would escort Xiao Hanzhengs group to Heyang County.
Hu Mincais people felt uncomfortable when they saw this, but they didnt dare to say anything.
They were afraid of being beaten up along the way.
At the same time, they were glad that they were finally going to part ways.
Qi Yiyang reluctantly separated from the group and headed to Lin County.
Shi Qingluo and her group went to Heyang County.
Along the way, they saw desolated lands and the poor.
After traveling for a few more days at the fastest speed they could go, they finally arrived at Heyang County.
When the commoners saw a group of people entering their county town, they could not help but run over to watch.
“Is this the new county magistrate”
“It must be.
Havent you seen so many soldiers following him”
“Sigh, I wonder how this newly deployed county magistrate is.”
“Isnt it just like that I just hope that he can reduce the amount of tax.”
Someone complained softly.
When the others heard that, they did not look forward to the arrival of their new county magistrate.
Everyones life was already tough.
They only hoped that this new county magistrate would not be as greedy as the previous one.
They would be thankful to the heavens.
Soon, the group arrived at the county office.
People from the county office came out to welcome them one after another.
Eldest Grandson Xiao was now the deputy county magistrate and had already established a firm foothold here.
He was particularly displeased at this moment.
He had originally reported the previous county magistrates corruption and sent him to prison.
He had thought that he could be promoted, but who knew that the imperial court would actually send a new county magistrate.
He had heard that it was a scholar from the capital, and he thought that he was probably from an aristocratic family.
It was best to fool such a person, and he would also be easier to deal with.
If not, he would send him away, and he would become the county magistrate.
Because of this, he stood proudly.
Many people stood beside him at the yamen.
It was obvious that they wanted to show the county magistrate who they were.
Because Eldest Grandson Xiao did his networking well at the county yamen, Third Son Shi was bright to follow him as a staff officer.
Eldest Son Xiao, Second Son Xiao, and Second Grandson Xiao were also arranged to work at the county yamen.
The higher-ups only informed that there would be a new county magistrate coming from the capital to hand over, but they did not say who was coming.
Therefore, the old Xiao family did not know that the person who was going to be the county magistrate was an acquaintance of theirs.
All of them were thinking about how to make the new county magistrate only as an empty shell, so that they could hold on to power behind their backs.
Then, they saw a handsome and extraordinary man get out of the carriage.
Eldest Grandson Xiao and the others widened their eyes.
Were their eyes blurred
Why did they seem to see Xiao Hanzheng
But please dont, their eyes must be playing tricks on them.
When the man reached out to help the woman out of the carriage, that little hope in their hearts was completely shattered.
If this wasnt Shi Qingluo, then who was it…
How could the new county magistrate be Xiao Hanzheng
Eldest Grandson Xiao was in a bad mood.
He had always been very afraid of this cousin of his, especially now that his illness had not fully recovered.
He had to beg Xiao Hanzheng to continue to treat him.
He was also afraid of Shi Qingluo, his wicked sister-in-law.
Why was he so unlucky
It was not easy for him to get rid of the previous county magistrate.
He even thought of giving the new county magistrate a show of force.
In the future, he would be in charge of the yamen.
Who would have thought that it would be Xiao Hanzheng and his wife…
Thus, Eldest Grandson Xiaos originally arrogant expression instantly changed.
“Hanzheng, why is it you”
Xiao Hanzheng looked at Eldest Grandson Xiao with a faint smile.
“Why cant it be me”
Shi Qingluo looked at Eldest Grandson Xiao with a brilliant smile.
“Why You dont welcome us”
Eldest Grandson Xiao remained silent.
Could these two people not smile like that He was terrified.
He cried out in his heart and forced a smile on his face.
“I do, of course I welcome you guys.
“I just didnt expect Hanzheng to be the new county magistrate.
Im… Im so happy.”
Actually, he indeed wanted to cry…
The other people who were supposed to follow him to the county office were all a little confused.
What was going on
The deputy county magistrate knew their new county magistrate
And he was actually so happy that he was cloud nine.
If Eldest Grandson Xiao knew what they were thinking, he would definitely be unable to help but scold them.
God damn that he was cloud nine, he was forced to do that, alright
He was afraid that if he showed any signs of not welcoming them, he would be dealt with by these two evil people in secret.
It wasnt easy for him.
When the other members of the old Xiao family saw Xiao Hanzheng and Shi Qingluo appear, they were all shocked, and their entire body turned sour…
