If this continues, do not support the hill brethren down, say, Li Tianxiang also fear the rebels will be a fraud, the people who made the mountains in the natured trick, therefore, he did not send a distress signal to the mountains.  At night, a few rebels near the dark delusions, were on sentry towers blocking back.Li Tianxiang tour again, safely back to the house to sleep.Midnight, a sudden sound earth-shattering gunfire sounded, Li Courtyard sturdy iron gate was instantly blew open.Rebel by smoke explosion, burst into the courtyard Lee.
