Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 350
Lin Feilu said with a smile, “Two big brothers, this is the river robber we caught just now. We have specially sent her here for you to handle.”
The two Yamen(3) looked at each other before one of them said, “Got it, you can bring her here, so go back.”
(T/N: A term for Chinese officials that guard an officials residence/ office)
Lin Feilu put on a curious look, “Let me ask how are you going to question this murderer? How many people have she killed? And how can she be convicted?”
The Yamen suddenly said angrily, “Too much nonsense! When was it your turn to talk about our affairs? Why don’t you just scram!”
Lin Feilu made a ‘hiss’ sound and nodded thoughtfully. She looked at the boat lady with a smile on his face and asked the Yamen with a smile, “I see, your family of officials are in kahoots with bandits?”
The Yamen immediately drew his sabre, “How dare you talk nonsense here. I think that you truly don’t appreciate our kindness while we’re being nice, so we’ll just have to use force!”
As soon as the blade was pulled out, it was kicked back by Xiaohei who was next to him. The Yamen was kicked to the ground by Xiaohei as he couldn’t believe that this person was being so arrogant just now. Before he had time to make a sound, Lin Feilu had already walked up to the Drum of Injustice(4), picked up the drumstick and struck it vigorously three times.
(T/N: Back then, if anyone felt like they were wronged or framed, they could strike a drum three times that would summon court officials to precede over their case. Normally, people wouldn’t do it unless they were confident that they could win or if there was no other choice since this court ‘hearing’ would be carried out in front of everyone.)
As soon as the Drum of Injustice sounded, the government officials had to go to court. Since the two Yamen were afraid of the Xiaohei and Xiaobai behind her, while running inside, they did not forget to leave them with harsh words, “You dare to despise the Yamen’s government and make a scene in the court, the officials will never forgive you lightly! “
Lin Ting sighed in a low voice, “I didn’t expect that there would be such collusion between officials and bandits under the governance of the Father Emperor.”
Lin Feilu said in her heart that he was still too pure. She had seen her fair share of these situations in TV dramas.
A few people walked up to the court and on both sides stood a row of Yamen with intimidating spears. All of them looked at the small group with a fierce look.
It might be the first time for them to have seen such daring and brave scoundrels. The man in the official uniform came over quickly, and as soon as he sat down, he slapped the gavel and said angrily, “Who is in the hall? Hurry up, kneel down and state your name!”
Before Lin Feilu spoke, Xiaobai sneered next to him, “Kneeling to you? Are you worthy of it?”
Lin Feilu, “…”
In just a few days of getting along, Xiaobai had already been influenced by her to this extent?
The government office was furious as he slapped the gavel heavily and instructed the officers on both sides,”If you are going to be disrespectful in front of me, you should be punished with 20 large board spankings first!”
After that, the Yamen on both sides were about to come to get them, but Lin Ting was very angry at the Yamen’s attitude, “Is this the way the Yamen tries cases now? Instead of dealing with the criminals, they try the people who report to the officials? Who gave you such prestige?!”
