A dozen of nervous and scared young girls crowded the room.
Ah Jin spoke softly as possible, "I am here to save you. Come with me."
The young girls looked uncertain, and then they were surprised.
"Really? Are you really here to save us?"
"Great. We're saved. Oh, I want to go home. I want to go home so much."
Most of the young girls covered their faces and cried without uttering a word.
Ah Jin excused herself from the room and sat down on the steps outside the door.
She gave them some time to vent their frustrations.
After so much repression, it would be much better to let it out.
Now that she found them, Ah Jin became concerned about how to bring them back.
She mentally called San Qi: San Qi, where are you?
San Qi was having a good time, and her voice startled it: Boss, fourth junior brother and I are in the outskirts of Luo City. We are in the middle of cleaning one of the bases. Do you have any instructions?
Luo City was at least two hours away from Pingyang City by horse.
Ah Jin was a bit surprised: Why did you go so far away?
San Qi: We were so busy that we couldn't even eat lunch. We had been running non-stop all morning, but we covered quite a distance.
She looked up at the sky, and before she knew it, it was already noon.
She asked San Qi again: Is there anyone close to me? I have a dozen people on my side to take back.
San Qi: Your fellow disciples have already split up to rescue people. By now, they should be very far away from you. Boss, you'd better take care of them yourself.
Ah Jin: Where is Gu Qingmei?
San Qi: She's with her second senior brother and the others. So far, I don't see much.
Ah Jin stood up and kicked Jian Hu, who was lying on the ground.
"Get up and go cook something for them."
Jian Hu wanted to refuse but then saw how the woman stared at him.
"What? Won't you?"
Jian Hu crawled up hurriedly, "I can do it."
Ah Jin kicked the old man again.
"Let's go to your house. I think the ducks are doing well. The girls are quite frightened. They deserve nourishment."
The old man didn't dare to oppose.
When compared with life, ducks were nothing.
Ah Jin took the young girls to the old man's house.
"I can’t take you away now because there is no carriage. We will stay here for a while. Rest assured, they won't dare do anything with me here."
The only person those girls can rely on now was Ah Jin.
So even if they didn't want to stay there, they could only hold back their eagerness.
Jian Hu was in the yard killing ducks while the old man buried his face in his arms to avoid witnessing the cruel scene.
His heart was dripping with blood as he listened to the ducks' miserable cries.
The ducks were slaughtered just like that after he had worked hard every day to raise them.
Although Jian Hu was unattractive and did a lot of bad things, he was a good cook.
Of course, he won't be sincere in cooking for Ah Jin.
He looked around and saw that Ah Jin was not there.
Instantly, his mind was filled with evil thoughts.
