If Old Ku was not influential enough in Yao Feng town, the Ku brothers would be detained in the yamen for a couple of days to make it look like the yamen was still investigating the case. Since the Ministry of Rites was burned, investigators from the capital would surely come and perform their own investigations, even if the magistrate had found the arsonist.
As travelling judges, we will be unable to help at all as we will be leaving soon but our presence will surely suggest that there was at least some guarantee that the case was properly investigated.
The parents of the deceased stared at Old Ku as he grabbed the Ku brothers and slung them over his shoulders, like bags of rice and headed to the exit.
However, before he could leave, an old man ran up to Director Ling and shouted: "Patriarch Ling, Ling Yi Sha's daughter was abducted by Patriarch Ku!"
But before Director Ling could make any kind of reaction, Old Ku looked at Director Ling and grinned and then he disappeared.
"Magistrate Dong, He kidnapped my granddaughter! Old Ku kidnapped my granddaughter! Get your men and get her back this instant!" Director Ling's yell rang throughout the courtroom.
Magistrate Dong face palmed at this moment and groaned "Not this again. Director Ling, when your family abducted the baby from the Ku family, I did nothing because just like you, they are also the grandparents of the child. The laws of the empire do not interfere with family issues like this and I do not have the power to determine who the baby will stay with…"
"No! I order you to do it! Go and bring me my granddaughter, back!" Director Ling yells angrily.
"Ding Sha, smack his butt and sweep him out of the courtroom." Judge Tang carelessly gives an order.
"Yes!" Ding Sha replies immediately and uses the staff in his hand to hit Director's Ling butt, sending him flying towards the exit.
The crowd immediately gives way to the flying Director Ling so he does not land on him and a loud *poof* sounds out.
Director Ling lands on the ground right outside the yamen and starts cursing.
"YOU! HOW DARE YOU ATTACK ME! DO YOU KNOW THAT ATTACKING A MINISTER OF THE COURT IS A CRIME?!" Director Ling angrily yells.
"Shut up or I will beat you again." Judge Tang softly says but everyone heard him clearly as nobody dares to talk right now.
"Crazy fat man. Let's go have dinner. Strangely this white tasty thing doesn't make me feel full." Judge Cui says as he walks into the kitchen, further infuriating Director Ling more. Right now, Director Ling does not even dare to let out a fart, because he is aware that Judge Cui is more powerful than Ku Qiang Ren, who he has had trouble suppressing for the past few years.
"Shi er, what's this white tasty thing you've cooked this time?" Judge Cui asks me curiously as we enter the dining hall for our dinner.
"It is corn and it's usually used as animal feed…Don't you feel like we're missing some pieces of the puzzle here and that we were being played by Old Ku somehow?" I voice out my thoughts as the system beeps me, reminding me that another wish has been fulfilled.
