    As the carriage walked towards Linyang County, Xu Nian unfolded the letter from Aunt Sister again, feeling a little restless.

    Su Yang Aid Army Rebellion Case.

    Five years ago, Su Yang was in a state of emergency, and the enemy troops approached the city. The Su Yang garrison guarded the city gates and delayed the enemy for 23 days, causing countless casualties before sending the distress letter back to Yandu.

    At that time, the person who was ordered to lead the troops to support was Lu Shisheng, the young master of Dongchuan, who rode the horses and weirs with high spirits. He was originally the person who placed countless hopes on the people in the city, but he burned the food and grass delivered and closed the city. The door slaughtered the people wantonly, turning Su Yang into a city of corpses.

    The reinforcements rebelled, and Lu Shisheng has never been seen since.

    The food and grass in the city were exhausted and the bones piled up into mountains. This was Qi Shun's first catastrophe in his first years.

    Elder Sister was originally Lu Shisheng's lieutenant general, when she heard the bad news, she rushed to Su Yang almost immediately, and brought Su Yang back to the world who was almost turned into a purgatory on earth.

    This is also a battle where Sister is famous all over the world.

    There shouldn't be a problem with this, but a few days ago, she asked Father to self-examine the unfaithful people around him.

    The elder sister said in the letter that a suspicious person has been found, this person is impartial, and he happens to be a survivor of the Su Yang case back then.

    Wrinkles were pinched on the paper, Xu Nian thought about her previous life, after her family was slandered and rebelled, the time when her family was ruined was too coincidental, at that time my sister was preparing to return to Zhijia Pass.

    She will always remember the mournful and persistent eyes of sister when she bid farewell to her parents, "My daughter was unfilial and was punished for five years in Zhijiaguan, but I still don't understand what I did wrong."

    "For five whole years, every night in my dream was the scene of blood splashing red tassels. Everyone accused Lu Shisheng of being a traitor. The more I wanted to prove his innocence, the more I could only get the ironclad proof that he was indeed a traitor."

    "He turned his back on him and ran away. My daughter digs three feet to find him. This trip is to return to Su Yang. I will believe him one last time. If the evidence is still solid this time, I will kill him myself. He heads back to Yandu and returns!"

    Going this way, and coming back again, is the image of the family in the mansion being ruined and imprisoned.

    Xu Nian is not a dull person, and he didn't think of the connection in his previous life, probably because they all thought she was still young, and when they said these things, they always avoided her subconsciously.

    She could only get a general idea through a few words, but now that she thinks about it carefully, if someone with a heart can frame and use it, it is only the Suyangcheng case.

    Even though Sister appeared to turn the tide back then, there were many uneasy and well-meaning people who speculated that since Sister was Lu Shisheng's lieutenant general, she might have been instigated long ago, and saving Su Yang was just a play they conspired to perform , the purpose is to arrange spies to Wei.

    The rumors were finally quelled by Sister's military exploits, but they did not disappear.

    Both rebellions had something to do with her family, and it was hard not to associate them with each other.

    Looking sideways, Qi Chu found that Xu Nian was looking at him from behind the curtain.

    Xu Nian hesitated a little, Qi Chu asked her: "Miss, are you thirsty?"

    She shook her head and said, "Lu Zhi, I have something to ask you."

    "Do you know Lu Shisheng?"

    When she first heard him say his name, she also had doubts. She hadn't heard of this surname in Yandu for a long time.

    Lu Shisheng absconded after the rebellion, but the Lu Mansion in Yandu could not escape.

    What he did in return was the great crime of exterminating the nine clans. Five years ago, anyone who was related to his family would not get good results in the end.

    But in her previous life, she had never seen King Yu had any connection with the Lu family.

    On the contrary, Qi Chu found out all the survivors of Su Yang in his first year in office.

    Above the execution ground, blood splashed on the stone steps, winding endlessly.

    The endless howling of pain was the creepiest sound Xu Nian had ever heard in his life.

    But Qi Chu just watched indifferently, he didn't allow her to close her eyes, and insisted on letting her watch those innocent people die one by one.

    There seems to be no end to the rolling heads and dirty blood.

    She didn't even know when she cried, but Qi Chu always had a smile on her face.

    "Is it good-looking? They want to live so much, but I just want them to die."

    The cold words pierced her tense nerves all the time, Xu Nian couldn't see what he was thinking at all.

    He turned around and suddenly approached her.

    With a voice that can only be heard by two people, the voice is ambiguous: "The fate of King Yu depends on how Princess Yu chooses?"

    She will always remember Qi Chu's eyes at that time, evil and fierce, playing and controlling other people's life and death is the most interesting thing for him.

    Xu Nian pulled himself together, and seeing that he didn't reply immediately, he repeated stubbornly: "Is your name related to Lu Shisheng?"

    Qi Chu looked at her for a moment, then shook his head, "I don't know the person the lady mentioned."

    His eyes are frank, not as if fake.

    Xu Nian was still wary: "Then why didn't you answer the first time I asked you?"

    "I was just thinking, the chaos has been going on for five years, and the lady suddenly asked me at this time, is she suspecting that I have something to do with it?"

    His eyes were sharp right now, Xu Nian felt a little uncomfortable for no reason, but just for a moment, he returned to his usual obedient appearance.

    Qi Chu asked: "I don't know what happened to make the lady misunderstand me like this?"

    He always didn't answer well, and although he had a correct attitude, he casually threw the question back to Xu Nian.

    Really cunning.

    In the previous life, there were many things she didn't know about, so calm and calm, Xu Nian felt that King Yu might have something to do with this matter.

    Especially his fake name.

    I just don't know what he is hiding and what he wants to do.

    To avoid the reappearance of the tragic scene in the previous life, in addition to prevention, there should be preparations.

    Be prepared and be more secure.

    There must be a connection between the Su Yang case and the rebellion case of the Duke's Mansion in the previous life.

    Although he denied that he knew Lu Shisheng, his life experience was fabricated from the very beginning. If he denied it, he probably lied to her, so she naturally didn't believe it.

    Hidden, without mentioning a word, is it possible that he is also investigating the Su Yang case?

    Thinking of this, Xu Nian only said: "It just suddenly occurred to me, just ask casually, don't think too much."

    Knowing that he can't tell the truth, according to his previous life, as long as he has nothing to do with the government's conspiracy, he will not cause any harm to the country's government for the time being.

    Qi Chu's drooping eyes were deep, and he didn't know what he was thinking.

    It happened that at this time, took a rest halfway.

    Chi Yanyu rang the carriage, "Nian Nian, I have prepared your favorite chestnuts for you."

    Xu Nian realized that there were still things he hadn't explained clearly to him, so he got out of the car, "Yan Yu, I have something to tell you."

    Just as Qi Chu wanted to follow, Xu Nian stopped him, "No need to follow, just wait here for me."

    The team was repairing on the spot, Qi Chu touched the horse's head, watched the two disappear before his eyes, turned around, walked quietly to no one's place, and took the secret document from the white pigeon's feet.

    He narrowed his eyes and glanced, and after a few glances, the paper turned into powder between his fingers and disappeared in the wind.

    When Chi Yanyu handed over the chestnuts, Xu Nian realized that he had already peeled them for himself, and he had mixed feelings in his heart.

    She avoided Chicheng's gaze, and called softly, "Yan Yu."

    "Nian Nian, are you going to have a divorce with me again?"

    Chi Yanyu can feel that seeing her this time is very different from the past, but he doesn't mind. They were both young back then, so they were childhood sweethearts. Now that they are grown up, they should have a sense of distance.

    Furthermore, he is more aware of what he wants than before.

    "No." Xu Nian raised his eyes and looked at him seriously, "I'm not being polite to you, I just think that accepting your kindness for nothing will make me feel uncomfortable."

    Chi Yanyu was stunned for a moment, then smiled, "Why is it uncomfortable? I used to treat you like this."

    He spoke normally, and Xu Nian felt even more uncomfortable, "But when I felt that your kindness to me became a kind of burden for me, I already figured it out, I don't like you."

    "The love between men and women happened to us, which made me feel awkward and even wanted to escape."

    Chi Yanyu felt uncomfortable.

    Xu Nian had never spoken to him so solemnly before. The little girl who used to follow behind him and shouted to Brother Yanyu was now drawing a line of distance from him.

    "Nian Nian, I'm not in a hurry. My parents and elder brothers never urged me to get married. I have time to wait, so you don't have to reject me so early. Besides, you can tell clearly in a few days whether you like it or not."

    Xu Nian stopped in her tracks, and the wind was blowing bitterly in her ears, mixed with her extremely calm voice: "Yan Yu, at any time, what I said today counts, if I gave you my nonsense in the past Please forgive me for causing trouble, if you are young and frivolous, you can't believe it."

    Even though Chi Yanyu was always a person who caressed his sleeves in the spring breeze, he was also dimmed by the wind at this time.

    Lost and sad lingered in his heart, he fixed his eyes on Xu Nian's face, trying to find some clues from her face to prove that she was really angry with him for leaving without saying goodbye.

    But no, calm, without waves, like this dead lake in winter.

    Chi Yanyu remained silent for a long time before speaking. He met Xu Nian's gaze and said, "Nian Nian, I finally know how you felt when I rejected you back then."

    Xu Nian didn't know what to say anymore, so she returned the snack to him: "It's true that I like chestnuts, but I don't like anyone who peels them except my father and mother."

    When it comes to food, she hates borrowing others' hands the most.

    Chi Yanyu looked at the back who was walking away, and he almost couldn't hide his lonely expression.

    As soon as Xu Nian walked back a few steps, he bumped into Lu Zhi, "Why are you here?"

    When Qi Chu answered, she passed her shoulder and glanced at the person behind her who was looking at this side.

    He said: "It's not easy to go on the cold winter road at night, miss, we should not delay any longer, we should arrive earlier before dark."

    Xu Nian also thought so, the team set off again, and when they arrived in Linyang County, it was already dark.

    There were no traces of the victims in the city, and they must have been resettled.

    The bright candlelight illuminated the dead bodies on the straw mat that had not yet been picked up, and the scene of starvation everywhere was sad to see.

    The person waiting was Kang Yi, who was called to Linyang by her elder sister early, "Second Young Lady, all the victims of the disaster have been resettled."

    Elder Sister asked her to look after the accounts. When she was walking towards the accountant, Kang Yi suddenly approached her and whispered: "Second Young Lady, Mr. Accountant worked in Su Yang five years ago."

    Xu Nian frowned slightly, "What does sister mean?"

    My sister will definitely not let go of anything related to Su Yang.

    But sister let her come, is it to avoid suspicion?

    Kang Yi nodded, affirming her thoughts, "Mr. Linyi asked Second Young Lady to let go of the investigation. Such a disaster in this county cannot be achieved overnight."

    Before coming, Xu Nian didn't understand why Sister could find so many people, so why did she let herself come here.

    Now she understands, but for anything related to Su Yang, except for the closest and trusted people, Elder Sister doesn't believe anyone.

    The rebellion case of Su Yang's reinforcements has always been a heart problem for Sister.

    The silhouette falling from the window was looking down at the book, and Qi Chu was leaning on the porch with his arms folded, thinking about what to do next.

    What she said today, was it intentional or unintentional, was she aware of something probing, or was it really as she said, and she suddenly thought of it and asked casually.

    Thinking of the secret letter he received saying that Qi Xuan was about to return to Yandu.

    So, still aware of what is testing his reaction?

    There was a knock on the door, Xu Nian thought it was Lian Tang, and said casually: "Leave other things aside for now, help me find Kang Yi, I have something to ask..."

    After talking for a long time, she didn't hear a reply. When she looked up, she saw Qi Chu standing not far away.

    Qi Chu suddenly stepped forward and brightened the wick a little, "The lights in the house are not bright enough, it hurts the eyes."

    Concise and concise, Xu Nian took a quick look, and it was indeed much brighter, "Lu Zhi, go and rest, I still have a while, and I don't need you now."

    Lu Zhi was silent for a while, his eyes fell on the table for a moment, and he said: "Miss, you asked about that old case today, but Lu Zhi suddenly remembered something."

    Xu Nian stopped his hands suddenly, and looked up: "What's the matter?"

    "Most of the officials who were involved in this case back then have been wiped out and scattered everywhere." He said slowly, "If there is anyone else who is involved in this case, only Mr. Linyi is left."

    If the Su Yang case is tricky, then the elder sister must be very dangerous. The culprit is covering the sky with one hand, and her elder sister is still determined to find out the truth. This may be the reason why her family was crowned treason in the previous life.

    If Lu Shisheng really turned his back on himself, he might make a comeback one day, and her elder sister would definitely not be able to escape.

    Qi Chu suddenly smiled and said, "Miss, if you are interested in this case, you might as well ask your sister, you will definitely get more than asking Lu Zhi."

    It made sense, Xu Nian responded, thinking that he was going out, but after waiting for a long time, he didn't hear anything.

    "Huh? Do you have anything else to do?"

    Qi Chu gave her a meaningful look, and called her: "Miss, it's better to rest earlier."

    The words were endless, Xu Nian vaguely agreed, and asked him, a patient, to rest earlier, so he didn't have to stay here with her.

    When the door was closed, the Shen Guang in Qi Chu's eyes didn't ease up.

    At this time, the room was indeed bright, the flickering lights could cast a shadow on the wall, and the almost imperceptible fine smoke was spreading silently in the room.

    Qi Chu looked back for the last time, then stepped out of the yard.

    This person is weird everywhere, but according to his guess, he can't find any clues, which is too strange.

    The black falcon hovering in the sky dashed down, as if some kind of signal, Qi Chu raised his eyebrows, and the fish took the bait.

    In the room, Xu Nian felt that her eyelids were getting heavier and heavier. She got up and wanted to wake up from sleepiness, but the moment she stood up, she fell back on the chair.

    Everything in front of her eyes began to become blurred, she stretched out her hand weakly, and finally couldn't support herself and fell into a deep sleep.
