Chapter 13: We’re not familiar, just call me handsome guy!

At this moment, everyone noticed Lin Beifan standing aside.

“Hey, young man, who are you?”

“When did you come here?”

“You look like a scholar!”

Lin Beifan showed a bright smile. “I heard everyone discussing the Night Hero and I became curious, so I came to listen!”

“I see,” said the same old man from before, still trying to act wise, “Young man, what should we call you?”

“We’re not familiar, just call me ‘Liang Zai’!'” replied Lin Beifan earnestly.

“Liang Zai?” The old man wrinkled his brow.

“Yes!” Lin Beifan happily responded.

“Liang Zai…” The old man repeated, feeling that the name was strange and difficult to pronounce.

Overcoming the weird feeling in his heart, he asked, “Where are you from? You look like a scholar.”

(Tln: Liang Zai means handsome guy)

Lin Beifan nodded. “I am indeed a scholar. I got tired of studying so I came out for a walk to relax! Please continue to actively discuss the Night Hero, praise him to your heart’s content, and don’t worry about me!”

After he finished speaking, Lin Beifan’s face showed a pure and curious expression.

It must be said that Lin Beifan’s face was very deceptive, making everyone unconsciously let their guard down.

“Great, then let’s continue talking!” The old man slapped his thigh and changed his posture.

“When it comes to the Night Hero, he really is a righteous and kind-hearted person! He helps the needy and is generous with his wealth. It is said that in just the past two nights, he has already given out more than one million taels of silver!”

“Yes, it’s amazing! One million taels of silver can be thrown out like it’s nothing, and ordinary people can’t do that! I know many old comrades who have greatly improved their lives because of this money!”

“It’s a pity that I haven’t seen what he looks like, otherwise I would really like to make a placard for him and offer incense day and night!”

Lin Beifan listened while laughing so hard his eyes couldn’t stay open.

“Keep praising me, praise me to death, no need to pity me!”

But at that moment, the old man sighed, “Speaking of the Night Knight, I remember another person!”


“The current top scholar Lin Beifan!”

“What happened to him?”

The old man looked around, then glanced at Lin Beifan, and whispered, “You should have heard about it. When he searched the home of Former Minister Zuo Xiangquan two days ago, he embezzled nearly two million taels of silver!”

Everyone gasped, “That’s so much!”

“And just yesterday, when he searched the house of the Imperial Censor, he embezzled a lot of money again!”

Everyone gasped again, “He even dares to embezzle money from Imperial Censors?”

One person interrupted, “Old Xu, is it true? He embezzled two million taels and also embezzled money from Imperial Censors? This top scholar’s courage is too big! To be honest, I don’t really believe it!”

The old man became unhappy, “How could it be fake?”

The old man looked around again, and also glanced at the smiling Lin Beifan. He whispered, “Let me tell you, after searching the house, the top scholar had his servant carry two large boxes around town, many people saw it! It’s just that they found nothing so it ended there. But I don’t believe he’s innocent!”

At this time, an old man interjected, “What Old Xu said is true! My neighbor’s second cousin’s brother-in-law is an official, and he was there at the scene, he saw how Lin Beifan embezzled! He got drunk last night and told us this story, he even said he has never seen such a corrupt person!”

Everyone couldn’t help shaking their heads and sighing.
“This is really a tragedy!”

“Empress Majesty opened up the imperial examinations and originally planned to recruit talented individuals, but who knew they would end up recruiting such a person?”

“Being so corrupt as a small official, how will he end up in the future?”

“One is generous and the other is crazily greedy! They are both human, but why is there such a huge gap?”

“Ah, those who are righteous often end up being betrayed by those who study!”

“Our court has gained another corrupt official, and life is becoming increasingly difficult!”

The old man took the opportunity to lecture Lin Beifan, using his seniority to teach him: “Young man, you are also someone who studies! Study well and serve the court, work for the well-being of the people, but don’t become like that top scholar who lose his conscience as he study more!”

Lin Beifan nodded repeatedly, “What the senior said is true, I have learned my lesson!”

“Hmm, the younger generation can be taught!”

It was at this moment that an old man squinted his eyes and stared seriously at Lin Beifan.

He felt like he had seen this person somewhere before.

Then, suddenly, he cried out in surprise and fell to the ground, pointing trembling fingers at Lin Beifan, “He’s the new top scholar, Lin Beifan!!!”

The scene exploded.

“What? He’s the new top scholar, Lin Beifan?”

“Why is he here?”

“Is this a joke?”

Everyone looked at the smiling Lin Beifan in amazement, unable to believe this fact.

Lin Beifan stood up, stood with his hands behind his back, and smiled, “Yes, I am Lin Beifan, the corrupt official you all talk about!”
