The old man Li was full of sorrow.
Sighing, he said, "You young warriors have no idea. Recently, the village girls have been missing one after another. I heard that they were taken away in the middle of the night. They are missing without a trace. The village is in a state of panic."
Hearing this, the third junior brother became furious.
He slammed the table and got up, "Outrageous! Such a bold thing to do in broad daylight!"
"Aiya. I'm not going to lie to you. Even I, an old man, I'm really scared too. I have no choice but to let my wife take my daughter back to her maiden house."
Lu Zhiyu said, "Since we are in this area and received the kindness of tea from uncle,
we have no reason to ignore this matter. Please allow us to stay here for a few days to solve this matter."
The old man Li looked at the young man who spoke.
The fine young man had a good appearance.
He was a farmer by birth and had no education.
He felt that the young man was so handsome that it made people feel good.
He was so excited that he was about to kneel down, "Thank you for your help, young warrior.
Let this old man here kowtow to you."
He had barely bent his leg when his arm was pulled up by a strong hand.
"Don't be like this, uncle. Jianghu's children fight for righteousness and justice. We have to fight evil and bring peace."
In response to the voice, he looked at the arm's owner.
That look, oh god.
What a beautiful girl.
Her eyes were so cold.
She was dressed as a warrior, wearing a sword on her waist.
Her aura was clean and cold.
The old man Li felt that the girl was several times more beautiful than the most beautiful girl in the village.
"Uncle, the matter should not be delayed. Please take us to the family in trouble now!"
The second junior brother's words interrupted old man Li's thoughts.
He hurriedly returned to his senses and led the crowd out to the family in distress.
The old man Li explained that they were there to investigate, so they thanked the group.
"My poor daughter! It's been so long since we reported to the authorities, but there's no news. The government is not doing anything. Many thanks to you all for your help today. We are very grateful."
The people humbly excused themselves to check the girl's room.
The villagers' house was so simple and plainly furnished.
There was nothing special in the girl's room.
Lu Zhiyu went to the window and pushed it open.
Right outside the window was the street.
He carefully inspected the window frame, then he took out a handkerchief and wiped the dust along the edges.
Seeing his action, the second junior brother approached him and looked at him.
"Senior brother Lu, what have you found?"
Lu Zhiyu touched the dust on the handkerchief.
A little light yellow powder was faintly revealed from the dust.
The second junior brother frowned, "What is that?"
Lu Zhiyu threw the handkerchief on the ground.
"It should be some sort of knockout drug. Humph. The Demon Sect's methods are getting worse and worse. Such tricks are being used."
Ah Jin came over with a rope and said, "They are all ordinary people. It's not worth their effort to use such tricks. They even used a thick rope."
She threw the rope in her hand on the table.
The quality was so bad that the thread fell off.
It was easy to see that the Demon Sect's people regard these villagers with the utmost contempt from these means.
For security reasons, they visited the homes of the rest of the villagers involved in the accident.
The clues they got were more or less the same.
The group returned to the old man's home once more to discuss things.
The third junior brother proposed to attack first.
He said he could not afford to add more innocent victims.
So the question arose, where would they look for them?
There was not even a witness.
Ah Jin listened to their discussion and kept quiet.
As they argued, the second junior brother asked, "Eldest senior sister, what do you think?"
Ah Jin looked at Gu Qingmei, "Junior sister, what do you think?"
Gu Qingmei was suddenly asked for advice.
She was a little surprised and a little flustered.
She calmed down and hesitantly said, "I do have an idea that senior brothers might want to hear."
The second junior brother said, "You can say it directly."
Gu Qingmei then said, "Instead of taking the initiative, we should wait for the enemy. They all want to take the women. I will pretend to be a villager with eldest senior sister. When they come in the middle of the night, we'll take them down in one fell swoop."
Once that idea came up, it was unanimously opposed by the crowd.
"No! It's too dangerous!"
"Not to mention the danger. If instead of catching you, they caught another girl? We'll be left with nothing."
"That's right! Also, you are not good at martial arts. If the Demon Sect's people are extremely powerful, what would you do?"
"I think that's a great idea!"
The crowd looked at Ah Jin in amazement.
For the first time in all these days, Gu Qingmei was recognized by her senior sister.
Her heart was inevitably touched.
Too bad that the moment she started to be touched, Ah Jin slapped her senses.
"Although you are usually a bit dumb, this time, you are finally smart."
They felt that the eldest senior sister's tongue recently seemed to be filled with poisonous tone.
Her words were increasingly damaging.
The second junior brother called the old man over for detailed questions about which women in his village were attractive.
The old man sighed and said, "The girls in the village who have good looks have all been taken away. Only three families should be left now."
Everyone who heard that was troubled.
What should they do when there were three families?
They decided that Ah Jin and Gu Qingmei would each have one house.
Two men would be sent to protect the last family.
Another person would be assigned to protect Gu Qingmei.
Then the last one would be on the stakeout from a good angle to keep an eye on them.
At any time, he should be on standby for backup.
The third junior brother was still a bit worried.
He said to Gu Qingmei, "Junior sister, you must notify us if you are in danger using our sect signal. We will go save you."
Gu Qingmei happily replied, "I understand, third senior brother."
Ah Jin couldn't bear to watch the show.
A fitting remark of dissatisfaction came out, "These are only a few demon sect thieves. If you get caught, don't come back. You will be a disgrace to the Tianshan Sect!"
Gu Qingmei only felt her cheeks burning and her face flushed.
Sure enough, it was all an illusion to be emotionally moved a moment ago!
The two of them were absolutely incompatible with each other.
The brothers caught a whiff of smoke between the two.
One after another, they moved to Lu Zhiyu to protect themselves from disaster.
Lu Zhiyu calmly sipped his tea, masking the smile in his eyes.
After discussing with the three villagers, Ah Jin and Gu Qingmei changed their clothes and put on ordinary peasant women's clothes.
The ordinary clothes could not cover Ah Jin's cold temperament.
The third junior brother complimented, "Eldest senior sister looks good in everything!"
Gu Qingmei ran to him and turned around, "What about me? What about me? How about me?"
The third junior brother said matter-of-factly, "Very good! It suits you very well."
The smile on Gu Qingmei's face stiffened a bit.
The village woman's clothes suited her?
Telling her that she was a village woman in disguise?
Ah Jin listened on the sidelines and tried her best to restrain her smile.
San Qi didn't care.
It was already rolling on the roof, laughing.
The third junior brother?
What a straight man of steel.
