The villagers outside the courtyard suddenly had a commotion. 200 silver coins, that was a very huge sum of money! They never had seen so much money before. But, Hu Feng earned so much, right after digging a wild ginseng?
Meng Nan nodded his head and then turned to look at the villagers outside: “Can the village doctor come in here?”
“I’m here, I’m here, let me through, hurry up!” Doctor Lu also came, but he was squeezed from the crowd, so he couldn’t see the situation in the courtyard. However, when he heard someone’s voice inside, calling his name, he came rushing.
Doctor Lu squeezed himself into the courtyard and went towards Meng Nan: “Daren, I am Lu Zhangchun, this village doctor greets Daren.”
Meng Nan waved his hand: “You don’t need to be so polite. I want to ask you, Hu Changlin said that Hu Feng dug a wild ginseng and you help them out to sell it, is that true?”
Doctor Lu busily answered: “That is true.”
Meng Nan asked: “How much was it sold?”
Doctor Lu immediately said: “A total of 200 silver coins, it was sold to the Baicao Pharmacy Shop. Daren can send people to verify them. The Baicao Pharmacy Shop will not dare to give a false statement.”
At this very moment, the Bai Family’s face became very ugly. They never thought that Hu Changlin really has money. They thought he was only like them. He’ll never be able to explain the origin of his money.
However, after listening to Doctor Lu’s statement, they knew right away that they made a big mistake.
Meng Nan asked another question: “When you take the silver, are they in a silver ticket or silver ingots?”
Doctor Lu answered: “Answering back to Daren, they were all silver ingots under the name of Taifeng Bank.”
Hu Changlin immediately took out the silver ingots in his arms and presented it to Meng Nan: “Daren, please take a look, this is our family’s remaining silvers.”
Meng Nan took the silver ingots that handed by Hu Changlin. There were 10 silver ingots that have marks of Taifeng Bank.
Meng Nan returned the silver ingots to Hu Changlin, then turned his head to the Bai Family: “Do you have anything to say?”
Old Lady Bai’s face was very pale. Who would have thought that Hu Changlin was really fortunate and rich this time?
Seeing the situation was not favorable for them, Mrs. Liu immediately responded: “That is, everything is just a misunderstanding. Our Bai Family just lose the money. And they just happened to buy a lot and fields. So naturally, we became suspicious. However, now that everything is clear, it was just misunderstanding. We will not pursue this matter anymore.” Mrs. Liu immediately took the old lady to leave.
Meng Nan raised his hand and said: “Stop.” Then, he swept his cold eyes to the Bai Family: “Since you indeed lost the money, this case is not yet solved. Naturally, this official will help you find the real thief.”
Mrs. Liu smiled and waved her hand again and again: “No, no, how can we dare to bother Daren for some trivial things. We will find out it ourselves.”
“Trivial things? Those silver coins were saved little by little by your family for years. Your eldest son is supposed to use that money for his marriage. So, how can you say that it was trivial things?” Meng Nan smiled and stared at Mrs. Liu, then added: “Alright, lead the way, this official will visit the crime scene.”
The Bai Family was at lost for words. They wanted to die, but what can they do right now?
As a result, the venue change from Hu Family’s house to the Bai Family’s house. Bai Zhi and Zhao Lan don’t want to miss this good show, so they naturally followed.
Hu Feng and Hu Changlin were not the kinds of people that like to join in the fun. But today, they also came to watch. They wanted to see how will the Bai Family get out from this Magistrate Meng Nan’s hands.
