Chapter 86: Fishing in Troubled Waters
The sentry realised that Ye Shang was not merely threatening him, but was out to kill when cold metal was pressed to his neck.
“I’ll speak! I’ll speak!” The sentry revealed everything he knew.
After listening to the confession of the sentry, Ye Shang knew he had found the right place. This group of people were the Lushan bandits. Except for a few lackeys who were out gathering information, almost everyone else was at the mountain pass. This was their stronghold. Ye Shang also found out the place where the two leaders were located.
Ye Shang reached out and stripped the sentry of his vest, then shook his head, “It’s not an unforgivable crime to be a mountain bandit, but you shouldn’t have massacred a family.” With a wave of his spear, Ye Shang slit the throat of the sentry.
Ye Shang put on the sentry’s vest and returned his reincarnation spear into the storage ring. He then brushed his hair to look more like the sentry before heading towards the mountain pass. He planned to infiltrate and observe the pass.
When he arrived at the mountain pass, Ye Shang did not enter it directly. Although he was unlikely to be discovered, he didn’t want to take risks.
He went along the mountainside, dodged two sentries, before sliding down the mountain and into the stronghold, walking in casually. Although he did not look as fierce and hardened as the other bandits, there wasn’t much of a difference. There was no need to be nervous since it did not seem likely for them to know everyone in the large group of bandits.

Several bandits saw Ye Shang but did not question him, and he continued to close in on the two stone houses.
Two bandits stood on guard outside the stone houses. Ye Shang did not approach, but walked back and forth, and continued to pretend to be patrolling.
Right then, the door curtain of one of the stone houses was lifted, and out came Huang Jue in his tiger skin vest.
“Er Mazi, bring some jars of wine to my room,” Huang Jue yelled at the bandit standing guard.
“Just a second! You, come and carry the wine with me,” Er Mazi waved to Ye Shang.
Ye Shang hurried over, seizing the chance to get close to the two leaders of the bandits.
Er Mazi led Ye Shang to the east side of the stronghold. As he walked on, Ye Shang saw seven to eight naked women being imprisoned in a cell and became livid at the brutality of the bandits.
