The Glory After Rebirth Chapter 48
This fast horse caught the attention of a lot of people. The man on the horse in black suit didn’t look like a messenger. No one knew who he was.
After entering the city, he first asked the way then went straight in the direction of the Ling Family and arrived soon.
“Who are you?” the Ling Family’s guard asked.
“Excuse me, is this Ling Xingzhong’s home?” asked the man on the horse.
“Correct,” the guard answered.
The man dismounted and said, “My master asked me to deliver this letter to Master Ling. He told me to hand the letter in person. Please pass the words for me.”
Was he the messenger? He didn’t look like the messenger. These two guards eyed the man from head to toe. Then one of the two guards went in to pass the words.
“Follow me,” soon the guard returned and led the man into the court yard.
Ling Xingzhong was sitting in the hall when he saw the man come in. When this man moved, he demonstrated such agility that was never seen on an ordinary servant. Ling Xingzhong was confused and couldn’t help asking, “Who are you?”
The man in black suit entered the hall and made a bow with hands folded in front. “Are you the Master Ling?”
Ling Xingzhong subconsciously sat up straight and nodded, “Yes, I am.”
The man in black suit handed the letter to Ling Xingzhong. “This is the letter of my marshal. Please check it.”
Marshal? Ling Xingzhong’s eyelid twitched when he saw the name on the envelope. He took the letter in a hurry and opened it. His face sauddenly changed as he saw the content of the letter. He stood up and asked, “May I ask when the marshal will arrive?”
“Tomorrow morning,” the man answered.
“Thank you for delivering the letter, young man. I will schedule it right away, and we will meet the Marshal at the city gate tomorrow morning,” Ling Xingzhong said.
“Our Marshall meant that you should keep his arrival quiet. He didn’t want to disturb anyone on this trip. It is no need to meet the Marshall at the city gate. He will come directly to Ling Family tomorrow morning,” the man said.
Ling Xingzhong was surprised. “Got it. I will never get this out.”
The man smiled and said, “Sorry to trouble you, Master Ling. I shall return to the Marshal.”
“Thank you, young man. Please take care.” Ling Xingzhong accompanied the man to the doorway, watching the man ridding away.
No sooner had the man disappeared than Ling Xingzhong ordered immediately, “Hurry up and ask the Second Master to come back.”
“Got it!” The servant hurried to Yamen to find Ling Zhaowen when he heard Ling Xingzhong’s serious tone. He didn’t want to waste any time.
“Father, what happened?” Ling Xingzhong hurried to find his father after he came back home.
“Read the letter first.” Ling Xingzhong calmed down now, handing the letter to Ling Zhaowen.
Ling Zhaowen was shocked after quick skimming. “Is Yuwen Tong coming?”
“Yes, his people are almost at Tanyang City. He sent words that he would be in city in tomorrow morning,” Ling Xingzhong said.
“Why is it so sudden!” Ling Zhaowen was genuinely surprised. “Should we inform Lord Tao? Should we be ready to meet?”
“No, the man who came just now told us that we should keep it quiet. Yuwen Tong doesn’t want to disturb anyone,” Ling Xingzhong said.
Ling Zhaowen understood what his father said. He calmed down and said, “Father, what do you think the purpose of his visit this time? It is the most reasonable approach for him to keep quiet if he is really not satisfied with this engagement. Now that he has received the letter about breaking off the engagement, why should he come here on purpose?"
