“There is some sort of a stench,” was what he said. He then asked, “Captain Wei,please take your men into the woods and chopped down some trees, the bigger the better. The rest of you stay away from the river and take a break.”
Wei Xingshan took a quick look at Lin Shuo and he face was full of questions. He didn't ask anything but just looked at Anne.
Anne didn't even look at him before she said, “Don't look at me, just follow Mr. Lin's words.”
Wei Xingshan had no choice but to order his mercenaries to follow Lin Shuo's instructions. The soldiers followed commands well, one by one they put down their bags, picked up their hand axes, and head into the woods.
The last one to leave was w.a.n.g Yong. Before he walked into the woods, he said with a smile, “Captain Wei, we didn't get very well last night. The food wasn't nutritious enough. Since this is Mr. Lin's order, we will naturally carry out the heavy laborous task like logging, but can we going get some game meat at night?”
“You get the h.e.l.l out of here!” scolded Wei Xingshan along with a switch kick to his b.u.t.t, sending him into the woods. Then he picked up a hand axe himself and followed his men.
It was still a bit of time before noon. According to the current path, their destination was 5 kilometers from the other side of the river. So n.o.body was in any particular hurry.

Lin Shuo looked up and glanced at the woman.
Short hair, wheat color skin. She was far from Anne's attractiveness, but her features were fair and pleasing to the eyes. And she was good at articulating.
“There's something in the water,” said Lin Shuo slowly as he looked down.
Everybody there turned a bit pale upon hearing his words.
“What is it?” asked Yang Ta.
“I don't know yet,” said Lin Shuo as he shook his head, “But better safe than sorry.”
Everybody rested for about 2 hours before they heard noises from the woods. The mercenaries were back. The men were dedicated to their task, Lin Shuo said the bigger the better. Two in a team, the men carried back 7 Korean spruces. All the branches had already been cleaned off with just the trunk left. The diameter of the trunks were all above 30 centimeters.
Drenched completed and in the front was Wei Xingshan carrying the largest Korean spruce all by himself. Smacking it down in front of Lin Shuo, he asked, “Will, Mr. Lin, is this big enough?”
