Ravaging Times

chapter 189

(I need to read this over, no time right now)

{Henei . house of Sima}

[?]: Just when I was getting mail, some of Cao Cao’s men came and took me away too.
[?]: So you were held at Qiaoxian the whole night?

[?]: You think? They asked me questions all night, because they suspect that we’re working for the enemy.
[?]: The sender didn’t leave a name? What does the letter say?

[?]: It’s strange. That letter reads incoherently, though the words may have carried double meaning. But without proof, they end up letting me go.

[?]: If my guess is right, they are hinting that we should use our wealth to serve their interest or whatnot.

chapter 189 Unamused

[4th Uncle]: Hell, if I find out who said it I’ll make sure he’s…
[4th]: dead!

[Sima Yi]: Cao Cao’s men came so soon? Looks like someone tipped them off.
[SMY]: Don’t worry, we’ve seen plenty of these types of instigating letters before. Now we just have to…

[4th]: Zhong Da! You having no worries doesn’t mean Cao Cao has none.
[4th]: So they did know that our business network reaches Zhang Xiu as well.

[4th]: The scariest thing is, the letter said, Zhang the host would serve Cao the guest at his house last night. Guess what that means?

[SMY]: I doubt Zhang Xiu has such capability. Besides, the Sima clan has placed all bets on Cao, so why would we mess around?

[servant]: Young Master, someone wants to see you.
[SMY]: Show him in.

[4th]: Hahaha, you, messenger, have finally turned yourself in!

[4th]: What now, are you going to say Cao Cao is about to die?

[messenger]: Not only that, he will die by the hands of the Handicapped Warriors.

[SMY]: Oh, a jester. Are you accusing the Sima clan of being the mastermind?

[messenger]: Correct. So in order to defeat Cao Cao completely, you better delay sending the rations.

[SMY]: Well researched. Looks like many people took part in it.
[4th]: Hmph, we’ll return your favor and send you to their detention cell.

[messenger]: Then it comes down to who they would believe.

[messenger]: That letter served only as a warning to Cao’s side. And now they may be making their move.

[messenger]: One Handicapped Warrior opened a bakery in Luyang.

[messenger]: Another one resides at Lü Bu’s camp.

[messenger]: One targets all evil men with his dauntlessness;
[messenger]: the other targets all lusty men with his beauty.

[messenger]: The two of them may appear to have left the group, but they’re actually working on another scheme.
[messenger]: The reason being, the Sima clan has suffered great losses due to Cao Cao’s greediness.

[messenger]: You don’t have to laugh, but listen to my next joke.
[SMY]: Ha!

[SMY]: Not funny at all. Hope you have something better, mister.

[messenger]: I can’t garantee that someone from the Luyang bakery won’t testify against his boss Liaoyuan Huo for money.

[messenger]: And I also can’t garantee that a man named Hua Tuo at Lü Bu’s side won’t testify that the person is Xiao Meng.

[SMY]: Is there anything more amusing?

[messenger]: That’s ok.

[messenger]: There will be more if one isn’t enough.

[Dian Wei]: gah…
[DW]: gah…
[DW]: gah…

[DW]: Charge!

[Zhang Xiu]: There’s no time. Everybody charge.
[general]: Yessir.

[general]: Infantry, forward!

[soldier]: They… they’re coming!

{shouting: kill~}

[DW]: Kill!

[DW]: Here we go!

[DW]: One!

[DW]: Two!

{sfx: pa~}

{sfx: pa~}

[DW]: Ten!

{sfx: peng~}

One hundred!

{sfx: peng~}

{sfx: zha~}

{sfx: peng~}

Ah~

One thousand!

{sfx: pa~}

[ZX]: Had enough?

[DW]: Zhang Xiu, is it your incompetent leadership, or are you planning to lure…

[X]: That’s the funniest joke I’ve ever heard!

{sfx: pa~}

{sfx: cha~}

[?]: gah!

[DW]: The last one!

[DW}: Go to hell!

[Liaoyuan Huo]: You too!

{sfx: cha~}
