Chapter 244: Taking Risk (Part Three)
It was clear that the battle was intense. All the marks were still there; broken trees, deep pits, and ground that seemed to have been plowed.
Fang Jie looked around carefully and figured out where Mo Wanwu laid in the last moment of his life.
The dry grass had turned greyish-black, and there were pieces of flesh and clothes that weren’t covered by dust yet.
Fang Jie squatted down at the place where Mo Wanwu had laid; the blood here was left by the wounds on his back.
Fang Jie pictured how Mo Wanwu lay here and looked toward one side.
“Here!” Fang Jie beckoned, and Qiu Yu and Yan Ji dashed over.
Fang Jie pointed at the tree beside him and said, “The murderer should have sat here for a long while, and Professor Mo was lying here while facing the sky. His left arm couldn’t move that much after a qi-point exploded, but he must have moved his right arm before death to hide the small movements of his left fingers.”
“How can you be so sure?” Yan Ji asked subconsciously.
Fang Jie looked at him and replied calmly, “Professor, you forgot that I was once a scout at the border; I’m more experienced at looking for small clues compared to policemen.”
Fang Jie pushed the dry grass to the side and found a rock. Most of this rock was buried in the ground, and a plate-sized surface was exposed.
There were four words written on there.
Mo Wanwu wrote these words in the last moment of his life, and it was hard to imagine what kind of perseverance he had that allowed him to write these words and hide them from the murderer.
[Fang, wis dead, mouth.]
“What do these four words mean?” Chen Qingshan asked Fang Jie in the shop at East 23rd Street.
Fang Jie replied, “Fang, so it must be Fang Henshui. That guy finally couldn’t hold back and is killing again. He even dared to kill a professor of the Martial Arts Academy. Judging from the traces, Professor Mo didn’t injure Fang Henshui. How come this person is so powerful?”
“Wis dead… Professor Mo must want to tell us that Fang Henshui’s strength is related to Wisdom, and Wisdom is now dead. The last word is mouth… We thought for a long time and couldn’t find the right explanation.”
Chen Qingshan couldn’t think of anything as well, so she asked, “Now that such a thing happened, are you still going to execute your plan?”
“Of course!” Fang Jie nodded and said, “Zhuang Dei finally took out the things that I want her to take out, so those people must be feeling anxious. The Royal Guard is in charge of capturing Fang Henshui, so I can’t do anything. Also, without his portrait, it is hard to capture him. However, I should be able to help Wu Yidao.”
He paused for a second and said, “Those people will do things tomorrow. With you, me, and the other three, there shouldn’t be any problems, especially when we have Qi Lin and Da Quan as hidden helpers.”
“It is too risky.” Chen Qingshan shook her head.
“The method that is risky and people think is impossible to execute is more likely to work. People usually wouldn’t even think about it, so I have more control,” Fang Jie laughed, “However, the Emperor might be frustrated if he learns that I’m using this method to get information.”
Chen Qingshan nodded and said lightly, “Tomorrow is February 11th, and the reinforcement forces would set off on the 12th.”
[TL Note: A huge change in the plot is coming is a few chapters! I even got surprised even though I had read this book long ago. Stay tuned!]
