Therefore, the interior of the He Residence was quite empty at this moment. There was no one patrolling at all, leaving only a few servants and servants.
“In order to make it easier for us to do things, Brother is trapped alone. At this moment, he’s most likely struggling to hold on. Let’s hurry up and not delay Brother.” Fang Zhen’s tone was anxious.
“That’s right, let’s end this quickly!” Gao Yun nodded solemnly.
They could only hear the shouts in the front yard, but they did not know the exact situation. They could not help but feel worried for Zhou Jing.
In the eyes of the two of them, even if Zhou Jing had divine power, how could he win against hundreds of servants and many guards who were proficient in martial arts? He would most likely be in a sorry state when facing them.
However, since there was still sound, it meant that Zhou Jing was still fighting hard. They could rest assured.
The two of them were worried about Zhou Jing’s safety and did not dare to delay. They quickly searched the inner courtyard of the He Residence.
The He Residence occupied a large area. There were pavilions and pavilions, and they were very exquisite. The decorations were simple and elegant, and one could see this style everywhere.
It was not that easy to find someone in such a large residence. However, Shi Qing had already figured out the location of some important figures in the middle of the night. Therefore, the two of them were not clueless.
The two of them had no time to admire the scenery of the mansion and hurriedly ran towards their targets. When they passed by a courtyard, they happened to bump into a few of the He family’s relatives and personal guards who had rushed back from the front yard.
The two of them suddenly met and were both stunned.
Without another word, Fang Zhen charged forward with his staff.
He saw that these people were dressed in luxurious clothes and had guards by their side, and knew that their identities were extraordinary. They had to be important figures of the He family, and were the targets his brother had instructed him to attack!
“There’s actually a thief! Stop him!”
The He family members were shocked and retreated in panic.
Seeing that Fang Zhen was approaching aggressively, the guards beside him hurriedly picked up their weapons to face him.
But how could Fang Zhen, a Green Forest wanderer, be lacking in martial arts? His iron-headed staff was powerful, and every strike could make his opponent’s arm numb. From time to time, he would even throw out a whip from his waist and lasso the other party, tangling with several guards who were also proficient in martial arts.
“Brother Gao, attack!”
Fang Zhen shouted as his iron-headed staff restrained the guards.
Gao Yun did not stay idle either. He carried the Red Embroidered Ring Spear and strode forward, easily shaking off the guards. He passed by Fang Zhen and the others to intercept the He family members.
“What feud do we have with you? Why is this happening!”
“Good man! If you let us live, I’m willing to take out my family assets to thank you!”
The few of them retreated repeatedly, but they were forced to a dead end. They leaned against the wall and could only widen their eyes in fear as they begged for mercy.
Seeing their pleading expressions, Gao Yun hesitated for a moment.
However, in the end, he made up his mind and attacked.
Pu pu pu!
A cold light flashed, and red plums bloomed on the ground.
A few of the He family members had a hole in their hearts. They sat down dejectedly, their strength flowing out of their bodies along with their blood.
“Why… are we the ones in trouble…?”
Someone muttered to himself in a daze.
Gao Yun had already turned around and walked away with his bloodstained spear. However, when he heard this, he stopped in his tracks, but his eyes became firm.
“There are other rich families and merchants in this city, but we only came to find trouble with you. Do you really not know why? If you had known this day would come, why did you do such things!”
After saying this, Gao Yun no longer looked at the few people who were about to die. He raised his spear and charged into the battle, emitting a cold light.
The two of them were both experts in martial arts, and Gao Yun was even stronger than Fang Zhen. Under their combined forces, they quickly killed the guards who were entangled in battle.
However, the sound of fighting had also attracted attention. The two of them quickly left the scene and quickly searched for other targets in the inner residence.
On the other side, at Spring Rain Restaurant.
This was the most famous restaurant in An Lin Prefecture. It was located in the bustling area of the city. The customers who usually came here to eat were all rich and noble families in the city.
Today, two of the heads of the four noble families, Master He and Master Huang, had booked the entire Spring Rain Restaurant. They were holding a banquet to entertain Magistrate Lin and some officials they were familiar with.
For example, Commander Deng and the other three were also invited because of what had happened previously. However, they only sat in the hall on the first floor and were received by the other leaders of the four noble families.
In the private room upstairs, Magistrate Lin sat at the head of the table while Master He and Master Huang accompanied him.
The table was filled with delicacies, and there were even beautiful women playing instruments in the room.
“The magistrate is far-sighted and has good governance. The prosperity of the merchants in the An Lin Prefecture is the result of His Excellency’s efforts. It’s really a blessing for the people of An Lin to have such a virtuous and talented parent. Let me toast you.”
Old Master He flattered him and raised his glass with a smile.
Magistrate Lin was quite pleased. He smiled and clinked glasses with him as he replied,
“The four of you, He, Huang, Lu, and Chen, have helped me adjust the business route and maintain public order. This state capital is stable and prosperous, and everyone has contributed. Don’t underestimate yourself.”
The few of them toasted and flattered each other. It could be said that they were both satisfied with the current situation.
At this moment, the sound of hurried footsteps came from outside the door. Then, someone knocked on the door.
“Lord Magistrate, I have something important to report!”
Magistrate Lin frowned and wiped his mouth with a handkerchief before commanding the person outside to enter.
An officer opened the door and walked into the room.
