Looking at such a poor family, Lin Feng could not help but sigh. Cheng Ran thought he was just a simple and crude house, and said helplessly, "Feng, don't mind it, this place is already the best place."
Lin Feng shook his head, but did not explain anything. He dismounted, slowly walked forward, and knocked on the bamboo door, while Cheng Ran curled his lips and said, "What are you knocking on? Where would they hear that? Watch me." He cleared his throat and shouted, "Is there anyone here? Is there anyone here? "
After shouting a few times, a dry old man in his sixties or seventies walked out. He slowly walked over while leaning on his walking stick and asked, "Do you two have any business with me?"
Cheng Ran proudly glanced at Lin Feng, and then said with a smile, "Old man, we are tired from walking, the weather is too hot, and there are no inns nearby, so we can pay for a night at your place." As he spoke, he took out a handful of crushed silver and handed it over.
Unexpectedly, the old man didn't even look at the silver and only said lightly, "If you want to stay here, then come in. It's just that I'm not very well off, and I'm afraid I don't have enough hospitality."
"Nothing, nothing." He quickly pushed open the bamboo door and led the horse in. The old man pointed to a shed in the northwest corner and said, "Tie the horse there. That's where the old man used to keep the animals.
The two quickly expressed their gratitude, and the old man asked again: "Where are the two little bros going? "How did you get here in the backwater of our village?" Cheng Ran smiled and said: "We went to the mountain in front of us to handle some matters. We can only blame the weather for being too hot, so we wanted to find a cooler time to go back. So we decided to rest here for the night."
The old man 'oh', pointed to the thatched cottage on the left and said, "Two young brothers, let's stay there tonight. That was the place where the old man's son and daughter-in-law used to stay. It's still early, come in and have a drink. "
The two of them looked at each other and were sure that there must have been an accident in this house. However, as they were outsiders, they couldn't ask, so they had no choice but to follow the old man into the small hut on the right.
Lin Feng and Cheng Ran found a place to sit down. The old man placed two bowls of water on the table, and then slowly sat down as well, apologetically saying, "We are too poor here, we don't have any tea for you. Drink some water to quench your thirst."
"Nothing, thank you." Cheng Ran smiled faintly and asked again, "This is Little Chen Zhuang, I assume that old man's surname is Chen?" The old man shook his head and said, "Although this place is called Little Chen Zhuang, we are the only family here that is not surnamed Chen. This old man's surname is Liu, and he moved here a few years ago."
Cheng Ran answered with an 'oh' and nodded: "So it's Master Liu." Lin Feng opened his mouth and said, "Uncle Liu, are you the only one living here? Where are your children? How come they haven't appeared for so long?"
Old Man Liu's expression darkened, "Sigh! It's been three or four years since the old man's son and daughter-in-law were at home, and now there's only one granddaughter and the old man are mutually dependent on each other. "
"Where did your son go?" They were all captured by the bandits, and the odds are against us right now. " When the old man spoke of his sorrow, he could not help but burst into tears.
Lin Feng was furious, "Bandits? "This place is already very poor, yet they actually did not let this place go. This is simply adding to the hardship. Do they still have any conscience? They are truly angering me to death. I will not let them get away with this."
Cheng Ran sarcastically said, "With just you, you're just like a weak scholar who still wants to find the bad luck of being a bandit. How could you have the ability to do that?"
The corner of Lin Feng's mouth curled up in an evil smile, "You think that I will go all out on my own? "He's really stupid." Cheng Ran suddenly said, "Oh, that's right. Look, I forgot about it. You have so many brothers and sisters who love you dearly and all of them have great kung fu skills. You don't have to do it yourself, do you, Young Master Lin?"
"Cut the crap." Lin Feng glared at him in annoyance and said to Old Man Liu: "Uncle Liu, quickly tell me where the bandits are. I'll find someone to deal with them. I like to fight against injustice."
Old Man Liu shook his head and said, "I don't know, they came and left without a trace. Their whereabouts are unpredictable, and they often ambush merchants and escort cars that plunder nearby. After everything is done, they will have to capture some people from our village."
Cheng Ran pulled Lin Feng to the side and whispered: "It might be that group of robbers that Big Bro and I met the last time when we were escorting our escort, but that time, they did not do anything good, and I believe that they will not come out to commit any crimes these days, it might not be easy for you to find them, furthermore, this matter is not something that we can meddle in, let's not bother about it."
Lin Feng cast a weird glance at Cheng Ran, and said coldly, "Where is your chivalry now? Do you think you can ignore the common people even when they are in the water and in the fire? You disappoint me. "
"I …" [Previous Chapter] [Table of Contents] [Next Chapter] This … "This …" Cheng Ran mumbled to himself for a long time before he finally gave in and said, "Fine, we'll follow you. Then we'll just take care of their nests and walk. But how can we contact your sisters? Don't tell me that we're the only two to go."
Lin Feng suddenly laughed mysteriously and said, "You don't have to worry about that, I have my ways." "Is that so?" Cheng Ran threw him a suspicious glance, and didn't quite believe him.
Lin Feng gave him a assured smile, but didn't say anything. He turned around and smiled at Old Man Liu who was looking at them curiously. "Elder Liu, I have a request, I don't know …"
Old Man Liu waved his hand and smiled, "If you have anything to say, just say it. This old man will definitely help."
Lin Feng gave Cheng Ran a look, and then said, "It's like this, we want to stay here for a few days, is that okay?"
Before old man Liu could express his opinion, Cheng Ran hurriedly added on: "Old man, it's been so hot these few days, we can't settle our matters, my brother's condition isn't too good. Please let us stay here for a few days."
Old Man Liu was amused by his pitiful appearance. He laughed and said, "That's it. No problem. As long as you don't mind, it won't matter for months, let alone a few days."
"Really?" Lin Feng and Cheng were clapping their hands in joy. Initially, they thought that they were dealing with a difficult situation, but they didn't expect it to be resolved so easily.
Old man Liu also smiled, "To tell you the truth, little brothers, other than the merchants and escort cars that pass by, no one else is willing to stop here. After all these years, the house has never been so lively, so when my granddaughter comes back, she will definitely be very happy to see the two of you."
Just as he was speaking, a clear and melodious shout came from outside the door, "Grandfather, I'm back." Hearing the voice, Old Man Liu smiled and said, "Speak of the devil, the devil is here. My granddaughter, Little Min, is back."
Hearing this, the two hurriedly stood up and looked towards the door. Following the approach of the footsteps, a girl dressed in green appeared at the door. With two black braids hanging down on her chest, she had a white oval face, perky nose, rosy cherry lips, and large eyes filled with spirit energy.
The two of them couldn't help but look at each other, thinking to themselves, how could such a beautiful and spiritual girl be raised in such a remote place, what a precious land!
Old Man Liu also stood up and introduced the three with a smile, "This is my granddaughter. She is called Liu Jianmin. "Oh, look at me. It's been so long, but I still haven't asked you guys what your names are."
Lin Feng hurriedly said, "My name is Lin Feng, the forest is the forest, the wind is the wind of wind and lightning, you can call me Ah Feng from now on." Cheng Ran also said: "I am called Cheng Ran, and I have succeeded in doing so. I am Ran who is slowly rising. Of course, you can call me A Ran, haha."
With a "Pfft" sound, Liu Jianmin covered her mouth and laughed, "You two are really interesting. Are you relatives at my house? Why haven't I heard of your grandpa saying anything about you guys coming to my house?"
"Little Min," Old Man Liu became displeased and said, "You can't be so rude to your guests. Ah Feng and Ah Ran are currently our guests and will be staying in our house for the next few days. Do you know about this?"
"Oh, got it, Grandpa." Liu Shoumin lowered her head and answered. Suddenly, she raised her head, looked at the two of them, and asked while blinking her big eyes, "Can you play with me? Can you help me? "
"Of course." The two of them replied with smiles on their faces. Liu Jianmin immediately pulled their hands together and said, "That's good. Come and help me quickly." As he spoke, he pulled the two of them outwards.
Being dragged along, the two of them were a little baffled. They turned their heads to look at Old Man Liu in puzzlement, only to see Old Man Liu only stroking his beard as he smiled and said: "Go, go."
