Heavenly Dao Formula Chapter 808
Jiujiang, in Liuzhou.
The cargo ship is going down the river.
"Nausea..." Gong Shujin lay by the window and retched for a while, but only spit out a mouthful of sour water.
"Drink some **** soup, I let the cook just boil it." Gong Shufeng handed a water bag to his brother.
He didn't expect that this clan brother who was not related to him would be seasick.
To say that the boat they boarded was already a good lion boat. Not only was it wide and large, but there was also a wing in the middle of the hull where people could sleep. But even so, Gong Shujin vomited in a mess when crossing the rapids, and he hasn't eaten properly for almost two days now.
Gong Shujin took the water bag and took a sip. Then he let out a long sigh and sat down slowly, "How long until we get to Jinxia City?"
"I have asked the boatman, and Huiyang City is not far ahead. After Huiyang, you can enter Shenzhou territory in a day and a half at most." Gong Shufeng said, "Is there any sailing ice ship in Shenzhou territory, I heard the speed It is several times that of an ordinary boat, and we can reach Jinxia in one day as long as we change to an ice boat."
"Ice boat?" Gong Shujin frowned slightly, "It's not winter now."
"That's what the boatman said. Even in the hottest July and August, these boats can run back and forth on the Jiujiang River."
"Is this also something that the Mo family fiddled with..."
"I don't know. But it's absolutely impossible to do this with mechanical techniques alone." Gong Shufeng shrugged, "Whether it's true or not, everything will be revealed in Shenzhou."
Gong Shujin nodded and stopped talking.
His eyes turned to the window again.
Gong Shufeng naturally knew what his brother was looking at. In fact, this was what he saw the most in recent days. Whenever he looked at the river bank, he could see a group of refugees in rags slowly heading south. At times there are dozens of people, at times there are hundreds of people. These migrants who don't know where they are going are all browned, their hands and feet are thin, and they will even fall on the road while walking. Sometimes he even has an illusion, as if he is not looking at the same kind, but a group of similar people. animal.
"This is really Liuzhou?" After a while, Gong Shufeng heard a whisper from his brother.
It is not surprising that he has this question.
Because according to what they know, Liuzhou is a very rich area in Qiguo, second only to Shangyuan in Gyeonggi.
"It shouldn't be wrong." Gong Shufeng replied softly, "Every time I go to a town, I write it down."
"Where are they going?" the brother asked again.
"This... is probably a place to stay?" To be honest, this is the first time Gong Fengwang has seen such a situation. When he was in Xu Kingdom, he rarely left Dadu, instead of staying in the Ministry of Works. It's in the home office. With the popularity of waterwheels and wooden cows, most of them have always been the most prosperous cities in the Six Kingdoms. There are not no people on the streets, but they are basically lazy, disabled and ruffian villains. It is easy for him not to see them. .
"Heh, where to go?" Someone suddenly interjected, "Actually, they don't even know where to go."
Gong Shufeng turned his head and saw the middle-aged man next door leaning against the door with a pot of yellow wine in his hand.
He is also one of the passengers on the cargo ship, his surname is Mo, and his identity seems to be a businessman.
The two brothers are used to the small rooms on the boat, poor sound insulation and no privacy.
"Mr. Mo." Gong Shufeng bowed his hands, "You said they didn't know it themselves? Then why did they leave?"
"Because if you don't go, you will die. Since it's a death to go all the way, it's better to walk around and see."
"If you don't go, you will die?"
"You... aren't you from Qiguo?" The middle-aged man looked at them a few times.
These words made Gong Shufeng feel tight behind his back.
According to the plan, their new identities are small families from a remote town in the Gyeonggi area. Because of the big change in their family, they are in urgent need of money, and they learned from Shenjin Daily that they accept people who are angry in the world, so they decided to go to Jinxia to meet them. Hit your luck. When the Privy Council was paralyzed and the examinations were cancelled long ago, this reason was completely plausible.
"Of course we are from the country of Qi." Gong Shujin coughed twice, "Why did you say that, sir?"
"Forget it, where you come from has nothing to do with me." The other party shook his head, as if he didn't want to dwell on this issue any more, "After the defeat of the Privy Council, the court has now been torn apart. The tyrants everywhere are vying for power and money. I can take care of the local civilians. In the past, there were government restrictions, but now there are no restrictions, these people naturally shave whatever they want, and of course the people can only choose to flee.
"So... this is all the fault of Jinxia City." Gong Shufeng said solemnly.
"Oh? What you said is quite interesting." Mr. Mo glanced at him, "Don't blame the robber, but blame the person who opposes the robber? As far as I know, Jinxia's situation is much better than here, at least people Everyone has one bite to eat."
"But you also said that there used to be government constraints. In other words, aren't they the ones who let the robbers out?" Gong Shufeng retorted, "If Jinxia doesn't rebel and let the Privy Council take over the local government, this way things will not happen.
The other party suddenly showed a half-smiling look, "Do you think everything will be fine if you hand it over to the Privy Council?"
Is there something wrong?
Gong Shufeng stubbornly said, "Exactly."
"It's a rich family." Mr. Mo opened the jug, raised his head and took a sip. "But now... it's hard to say if you have money!"
"Sorry, we're just ordinary people"
"Ordinary people don't carry leather water bags with them." He interrupted with a wave of his hand. "And shoes, your soles are too clean... If you want to hide your identity, you can use more snacks."
After speaking, the man walked out of the boathouse shaking the jug.
The brothers looked at each other. UU Reading www.uukanshu.com
They had changed into the most simple linen clothes before leaving, and not a single jewelry pendant was left; in order to match their identities, they only carried the most basic travel expenses and a package of dry food, and even the organs that usually never left their bodies. The tool kits are all kept in Shangyuan City.
I thought it would be seamless, but an ordinary businessman who was accompanying the ship saw the flaw.
Gong Shujin glanced at the water bag in his brother's hand, "I'm afraid this thing will be thrown away."
"Do you even have to change the shoes?" Gong Shufeng raised his feet in embarrassment. These cloth shoes were much worse than the soft deerskin boots he wore every day. In order not to stink his feet, he deliberately stuffed two more in the shoes. A piece of cushion, how can I expect that the cloth shoes themselves have problems.
At this moment, a burst of shouts suddenly came from the bow.
Gong Shujin stood up and looked around, only to see a gray-white city wall not far from Zuo Xian. On the Jiujiang River, long iron ropes were pulled up, and many boats piled up on both sides, forming a dense forest of masts. At the same time, several fast boats were approaching the cargo ship. The people standing on the bow shouted in official robes and shouted loudly, "Stop the boat! Accept the inspection by Huiyang Mansion!"
