t the investigation to him.

And even if it was handed over to him, he was told that there was no rush?

Was this the attitude of wanting to know the truth?

The water here was likely not shallow.

Furthermore, there were others going apart from him?

”No need to worry too much, it ’s just to investigate it.
If there are any results, just report them.
Presumably, there shouldn ’t be any problems. ” Warden Li looked at Chen Chao with a slight smile

No problems?

If there were no problems, would you have come to find me personally?

Chen Chao did not believe it.

Not even a dog would believe him!

After being silent for a moment, the emotions on Chen Chao ’s face gradually changed.

”Your Excellency previously said that all of Great Liang ’s people should be protected by us.
But I just sought comfort, it ’s truly shameful.
This lowly official has thought things through now, Your Excellency, please transfer this lowly official to the place with the most demons.
Allow this lowly official to do my duty of keeping the people safe! ”

Chen Chao had a sincere look.
The scene from before was re-enacted again.

… ”

Warden Li looked at Chen Chao and felt somewhat speechless too, ”It ’s really this warden ’s first time seeing someone like you that ’s so righteous in being shameless. ”

”I was trained well by Your Excellency. ” Chen Chao did not care how he put it.
In troubled times, the most important thing was to preserve his own life.
Then, it was to prevent himself from getting into those kinds of unwarranted trouble.

”Humph! ”

”There ’s nothing to discuss about this.
Do you think that you ’re buying vegetables at the market? Bargaining about the price? ” Warden Li gave a cold laugh.

Then, he relaxed a little.
A pair of eyes looked at Chen Chao and he said meaningfully, ”You ’re a smart person.
You should know what to do, right? ”

Chen Chao clasped his hands and stopped struggling.

His expression was somewhat depressed; as if he had resigned himself to fate.

Warden Li was very satisfied.
Suddenly, he continued, ”Relax, I won ’t harm you. ”

Chen Chao opened and closed his mouth.
He did not know what to say to this direct superior whom he was meeting for the first time.

Only after a long silence, did Chen Chao say softly, ”Then I ’ll have to thank Your Excellency. ”

Warden Li took a look at Chen Chao and smiled without saying anything.

Finished saying that, Warden Li walked out of the county office ’s main hall and disappeared in the snowstorm.

Chen Chao let out a sigh and walked out of the main hall too.
At the county office entrance, he saw Xie Nandu who had been waiting there all along.

The two people exchanged a glance and were just about to leave when they saw that low-ranking official who left previously.
At this time, he was currently heading over to the county office while panting heavily.
When he arrived at the entrance and saw Chen Chao, he was overjoyed and said, ”Warden Chen, there ’s…
someone… ”

He panted heavily and could no longer say anything.

Chen Chao looked at him and said with a slight smile, ”I got it. ”

This matter was already over, how could he not know?



Warden Li who walked out of the county office arrived before a small alley.
A horse carriage was stopped here at an unknown time.
The top of the carriage was piled high with snow, looking like it had already stopped here for some time.
Warden Li came before the horse carriage and said rather respectfully, ”Your Excellency, the matter that you tasked has been carried out. ”

After saying this, Warden Li did not dare to say another word.
He just stood next to the carriage, quietly waiting for what followed.

”Mhm… ”

Before long, a lazy voice came from inside the carriage, ”How ’s that youngster? Can he achieve great things? ”

One was actually unable to determine whether was it a male or female by hearing the voice.

”Looks to be rather level-headed.
He shouldn ’t be a dumb person.
It just seems like he ’s a little timid and isn ’t willing to get involved in disputes.
When the time comes, who knows whether it will be good or bad. ”

When Warden Li recalled his interaction with Chen Chao previously, how that boy looked different before versus after.

He was silent for a moment before asking carefully, ”Why did we have to find a low-level warden for such an important matter? ”

Warden Li somewhat regretted it the moment he asked this.

Sure enough, a cold voice came from inside the carriage, ”You just have to mind your own business.
You don ’t need to ask about other things. ”

But before long, that person inside the carriage seemingly could not hold back and said softly, ”He has his own shrewdness.
Otherwise, based on his achievements over these past few years, he ’ll be able to sit in your position no matter how much you guys suppress him. ”

”There ’s actually barely any traces of demons in a county town with a radius of dozens of miles.
Where can you find such a scene in the Great Liang Dynasty? ”

The owner of that voice was obviously curious.
”He ’s merely a teenager, yet also not just a teenager.
Truly hard to believe it. ”

”Oh, right, you really couldn ’t find any problem in his files? ”

Warden Li smiled bitterly and said, ”The position of warden was indeed bought.
But, there are no clues as to which family paid the money.
It was done very cleanly. ”

”That ’s already within expectations.
Maybe even his name is fake. ”

Warden Li nodded his head subconsciously.
Otherwise, how could they not find any clues at all?

For some time, the two did not speak.
It was very quiet between heaven and earth.

A moment later, a voice came out of the carriage again, ”Hope that the youngster really isn ’t stupid. ”
