Chapter 368 Visiting
“Who do you think wants to kill him?” Mu Yi looked at Yun Mengxuan and asked.
“Maybe someone from the North Marine Navy.” Yun Mengxuan thought for a moment and said.
Li Yuanhong was a member of the North Marine Navy originally. Now he had become the subordinate of governor Zhang. In many people’s eyes, it was a betrayal.
“North Marine Navy? It shouldn’t be. Master Li is not such a mean person. Otherwise, Li Yuanhong couldn’t live after leaving the North Marine Navy.” Mu Yi shook his head and said.
Although he was not familiar with the North Marine Navy, he had heard of the leader’s reputation. Over the years, there had been many people who had left the North Marine Navy. None of them had been in any accidents. Li Yuanhong’s enemies did not come from there.
What was the person hoping to accomplish? Mu Yi doubted that they had asked him to kill Li Yuanhong without a reason. The man knew secrets and was using them to plot against him. He was not unwise so he should have other intentions.
“What clues have been found?” Mu Yi asked.
“I am ashamed to say that they are too meticulous. Even those who send letters can only be found temporarily. Every time, the place changes and the messengers are different. The only thing we can be sure of is that they should have great influence in the world.” Yun Mengxuan said.
“It seems that it’s time to meet Li Yuanhong.” Mu Yi said.
“Are you ready?” Yun Mengxuan asked.
“It’s just that I’m interested in him. I was asked to kill Li Yuanhong. Don’t you think it’s very interesting? Why didn’t he choose someone else? Anyway, I have nothing to do these days. Help me to send an invitation and I’ll visit Li Yuanhong tomorrow afternoon.” Mu Yi said calmly.
“Yes, my Lord.” Yun Mengxuan nodded and said.
She believed that considering the current status of Mu Yi, even though Li Yuanhong was a little influential in Jiang City, he could only wait respectfully. It was basically bullying. The Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag was not simple. Even if he was born in the world, once his power reached a certain level, no one would dare to underestimate him.
Longhu Mountain and Mao Mountain had lasted for thousands of years. Did all the emperors not fear them? Didn’t they want to destroy them? Obviously, they wanted to, but the two factions were still okay and even prosperous. It was enough to show that the problem was that not they couldn’t, but they dared not.
After Yun Mengxuan left, Mu Yi settled down and didn’t waste time. If he wanted to make further progress, it would not be a matter that simply took one day and one night. Just like water dripping down a stone, it would take time for it to accumulate.
Mu Yi didn’t receive any more letters. It seemed that whoever it was was waiting for him to kill Li Yuanhong. Maybe they already knew that he asked Yun Mengxuan to send an invitation and was waiting for the good news. Mu Yi arrived at Li Yuanhong’s house in the afternoon. It was very close to the river in a beautiful place.
When Mu Yi wandered the world with the old Taoist Priest, he learned a little about Fengshui. Although he was not very proficient in Fengshui, he could feel the rising water vapor. Moreover, the trees, flowers and plants here were more prosperous and full of vitality than other places. Living in this kind of place, people would seldom get sick and might even live longer.
Yun Mengxuan followed Mu Yi in silence. After all, Mu Yi came to visit in name. They saw a man about 40 years old standing at the door. He was not very tall and looked fat. He was wearing a brocade robe and looked like a landlord master.
“Are you the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag?” Li Yuanhong went down the steps hurriedly and said.
“Yes I am. I beg general Li not to be surprised.” Mu Yi said with a smile.
“If you can come to my house, it’s already splendid.” Li Yuanhong said immediately.
He knew that Mu Yi was far more powerful than a general in the world. In fact, after receiving the invitation from Mu Yi, Li Yuanhong was a little worried. He didn’t understand why Mu Yi wanted to see him. He was sure that he hadn’t offended Mu Yi. He hadn’t even dealt with Black Sparrow Hall before.
No one had been able to give him an answer. For this reason, Li Yuanhong even thought of asking for help, or simply avoiding the meeting. It would be nice to just wait for Mu Yi to leave. However, with the strength of Mu Yi, if he offended him, he would not be able to have a good life in Jiang City in the future.
The other reason why he dared to stay was because his wife said that Mu Yi sent an invitation. It showed a certain attitude. Otherwise, he could have just come directly. Li Yuanhong was able to stop worrying completely now, because Mu Yi’s attitude was enough to erase his doubts. He was still rather curious though. Although his status was not low, he was not the most powerful person even in Jiang City. There were a lot of people who had a higher status than him.
“I don’t know what the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag’s order is for me?” Li Yuanhong asked.
His attitude was good. He didn’t despise Mu Yi because he was young. He knew that the position of the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag was not one that anyone could sit in at will. The Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag’s style of conduct could be seen from the slaughter of Black Sparrow Hall. He was not easily provoked. Even if Mu Yi was young, Li Yuanhong would take him seriously.
“Here is a letter. Please have a look at it.” Mu Yi said.
When Li Yuanhong saw what was written on the letter clearly, his face flashed with surprise and anger.
“Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag, there are villains instigating this.” Li Yuanhong said.
“I believe in you, but the person who sent this only mentioned you. I have to come today, mainly to ask you if you have enemies.” Mu Yi asked directly.
Since it was related to his own life, he would not be careless. Although Mu Yi’s method was simple, it could only be used by him. If he was an expert with no identity and came to the door with this letter, he would be killed. It wasn’t possible that Li Yuanhong was a good man with such a good attitude.
“Although I’m not a good person, I’m definitely not a traitor or a villain. I’ve been in the army for all these years and I haven’t offended anyone. Even if there was a little dispute between myself and colleagues, I don’t think there will be a man who wants to kill me at the risk of provoking the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag.” Li Yuanhong frowned and said.
“You can’t think of anyone?” Mu Yi asked.
“Don’t blame me. I can’t be sure who would want my life.” Li Yuanhong shook his head and said.
“In that case, I’ll leave first. If General Li remembers anything, don’t forget to notify me.” Mu Yi said.
He quickly got up and left with Yun Mengxuan. Li Yuanhong couldn’t help but be surprised. He didn’t expect that Mu Yi would leave so soon. He sat down and only said a few words when he arrived. The servants didn’t even make tea. He opened his mouth and wanted to stop Mu Yi, but he found that he could not say anything.
“Have you discovered something?” Yun Mengxuan asked after they left.
“Yes, the truth is not far away.” Mu Yi said.
