Chapter 21 Hou Cheng seizes the camp
At the same time, Hou Cheng came to the military camp with a dozen people and the prefect’s documents. Hou Cheng wanted to completely control the barracks before the county magistrate made any move. In this way, even if the county magistrate wanted to rebel, it would be too late.

When Hou Cheng led his people to the barracks, he saw a group of carriages coming out of the small camp entrance. From the deep ruts, Hou Cheng could already see that the things in the carriages were not simple. Hou Cheng thought to himself: What kind of military camp is this? It looks like a warehouse. It’s just that the goods in this warehouse belong to whom?

Although Hou Cheng felt strange, he was not too busy. Hou Cheng must have more important things to do now. So Hou Cheng walked straight towards the military camp.

The soldiers at the gate of the military camp watched Hou Cheng bring people over. Seeing that the situation was not going well, he didn’t dare to come up to stop him, so he hurriedly turned around and ran into the military camp.

When Hou Cheng saw the soldier running in to report the news, he showed a smile and pointed at the few soldiers he brought with him and said: “Help me guard the gate of this camp and don’t let anyone leave. Anyone who violates the order will be punished on the spot.” ”

The soldiers who were left behind quickly responded: “Yes.”

After saying that, Hou Cheng turned around and said to a soldier from Jiuyuan County who was standing at the gate of the camp: “Take me to see the commander of your camp.”

The soldier saw Hou Cheng coming, and he was wearing the uniform of a county soldier, so he didn’t dare to say no. He quickly lowered his head and replied, “Yes.”

After saying that, the soldier took Hou Cheng and the soldiers brought by Hou Cheng and headed straight for the military camp tent.

At this moment, in the large tent of the Jiuyuan County military camp, a fat-headed and big-eared officer was having a drink with a girl in his arms. Hearing the report of the soldiers running in from the gate of the camp, I was shocked at first. Then he shouted to the soldier who reported the news: “Did you see clearly that the man who came is the son of the new governor of Wuyuan County?”

The soldier who came in to report the news just saw that the situation was not right, so he came in to report the news. How could he know who the other party was. Upon hearing the officer’s question, the soldier hesitated and said, “Sir, I just saw that the person who came here is very powerful, and he is wearing the equipment of the county soldiers. As for who the person is, I don’t know.”

When the official heard this, he gave him a sharp look, and the soldier who reported the news said, “Go find the county magistrate and Mr. Xu You right away.”

Seeing the soldier rushing out of the camp gate, the officer hurriedly dressed neatly and went out to greet him at the camp gate.

As soon as the officer came out of the tent, he happened to meet Hou Cheng coming towards him. As soon as Hou Cheng saw the officer’s uniform, he knew that the man in front of him was the chief officer of the military camp. I saw Hou Chenglue cupping his hands and saying to the officer: “I have been ordered to take over the military camp. Please cooperate with me.”

When the officer heard that Hou Cheng wanted to take over the military camp, he was willing. Then he laughed a few times and said: “What are you talking about, sir? What a noble person you are, why do you need to bother with such vulgar things?”

Seeing that this man was unwilling to cooperate, Hou Cheng wanted to kill the military camp commander in front of him with one knife.😋/

But Hou Cheng then thought about it, even if he really killed the person in front of him, would he be able to control the military camp? Hou Cheng felt that if he killed the man in front of him with one knife, he might not be able to control the military camp, but might even cause a mutiny. The men on the grassland have always been soft eaters rather than tough eaters.

Thinking of this, Hou Cheng laughed. Hou Cheng adjusted his tone. He said to the officer: “I am Mr. Lu, and I have come to reward the three armies on your orders. It is convenient for you to pay off your Majesty.”

When the officer heard that he was here to reward the three armies, his nervous mood suddenly relaxed. But he still asked Hou Chengdao a little uneasy: “Since Shangguan is here to reward the three armies, how can he say that he wants to take over the three armies?”

Hou Cheng turned his eyes, thought for a moment, and said with a smile: “Sir, don’t panic, this is what our salary means. Our young master said that Jiuyuan County is an important place for military strategists, and people with outstanding ability must control the army in order to benefit Common people. So my young master asked me to test your courage, sir, before rewarding the three armies. Your Excellency, you shouldn’t blame my young master.”

The officer felt relieved after hearing Hou Cheng’s deception. Immediately, an order was sent to hold a banquet to welcome Hou Cheng and his party.

Hou Cheng didn’t dare to waste time, so he hurriedly declined and said: “Your Excellency, please gather the soldiers of the three armies together first. After we have finished the business, it will not be too late to have a drink. Today I will definitely compete with Your Excellency in terms of drinking capacity.” Hou Cheng made a smile unique to men.

When the officer heard this, he understood what Hou Cheng meant. He patted his head hurriedly and said, “Look at my memory. I’m so happy that I forget important things.”

After speaking, the officer hurriedly asked all the soldiers in the camp to gather at the school ground.

Hou Cheng came to the school ground and saw a group of about 500 strong men gathered on the school ground. Hou Cheng said loudly: “Fellow officers, I am Mr. Lu Bu. I am sitting here, Hou Cheng. On the order of Lord Ding Yuan, the new governor of Wuyuan, I came to Jiuyuan County to recruit young and strong soldiers to serve the country and regain the rivers and mountains to fight against foreign humiliation.” . You are all the good men of my Han Dynasty, the eagles on the grassland. Are you willing to join me in killing the Huru and avenging the deaths of our fellow villagers at the hands of foreigners over the years?”

As soon as Hou Cheng finished speaking, a group of soldiers on the school field shouted: “Yes, yes, yes.”

Seeing the excitement among the crowd, Hou Cheng felt proud and said to himself: “Sure enough, the military spirit can be used.”

However, when Hou Cheng turned around and looked at the officer again. The officer’s face no longer looked good.

The officer smiled at Hou Chengpei and said, “Commander Shangguan’s banquet has been prepared. Your Excellency, you’d better hurry up and sit down.”

Hou Cheng was very happy when he heard that the officer wanted to sit down.

In fact, Hou said he had already seen that this officer would not hand over his military power. Then the only way is to get rid of this officer. But Hou Cheng can’t kill people in public. In that case, Hou Cheng was not sure he could control the situation. But when you get to the military tent. Haha, that would be different.

Thinking of this, Hou Cheng said to the soldiers in the school field: “Everyone has worked hard in Jiuyuan County over the years. The governor knows everyone’s hard work, so this time he specially sent young master Lu Bu to reward the three armies. Everyone, please be patient. , wait for a while in this school ground, and we will distribute the rewards.”

When the soldiers below heard that there was a reward, they all became excited as if they had been given a shot of blood. They all stood in the school yard and waited eagerly.

At this time, Hou Cheng turned to the commander of the military camp on the side and said: “Sir, why don’t we invite the chief officers in the camp to have a bar together. When the young master’s people send the reward, how about we reward the three armies?”

The officer was already sweating when he saw Hou Cheng giving a speech. Although he would not hand over military power to Hou Cheng, he did not want to stalemate the relationship with Hou Cheng. Hou Cheng must have been sent from above. Although it may not be possible to do anything to him, there has been a lot of money in Jiuyuan County in the past few years. If you have money, you will cherish your life. If you can offend as few people as possible, harmony will lead to wealth.

The officer was thinking this, and happened to encounter Hou Chengxiang asking him where he disagreed. Then he hurriedly summoned all the chief officers to have wine in his army commander’s room.

When approaching the military tent, Hou Cheng glanced at the two soldiers behind him. The two soldiers casually stood guard at the entrance of the military tent.

In the big tent, the officer and a group of generals in the military camp were about to sit down at the table. Hou Cheng stood in the tent first, looked at the eight generals in front of him and said loudly: “My young master has been ordered to come to Jiuyuan County to summon the local warriors. I, Hou Cheng, have been ordered by the young master to take over the military camp. What do you think?” As he said this, Hou Cheng took out the recruitment documents and waved them in front of everyone, but he didn’t mean to let anyone take a look.

There was a clever general who saw that the situation was not good and wanted to rush out of the tent, but was blocked by Hou Cheng’s soldiers.

The chief officer in the camp saw that Hou Cheng was serious about it this time. He sighed and said: “I didn’t want to be an enemy of your young master, but you forced me like this. It seems that I have no choice but to be rude. Don’t you know what it means: ‘A strong dragon will not suppress a local snake’? Just with that Do these people under you really think that I can’t do anything to you?”
