Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 455
Yeogyeong was a fairly large city.
Since it is located at the crossroads of the waterway and the overland road, it was often visited by those who transported large-scale goods such as merchant companies and flagpoles. Because of this, accommodation facilities for them were well developed. Also, there was a fairly large drinking market on the outskirts.
Those who use the waterway sold their horses here, and those who came by the waterway and used the overland road bought horses.
As the circumstances were, the policewoman’s horse market was very lively.
As soon as Zigong Corps entered the police force, they went to the horse market to sell horses. I wasn’t trying to sell the draft horses. It was to sell the horses stolen from the bandits.
The price of one horse was over five gold coins.
If you had dozens of horses, you could earn at least a few hundred gold.
Because of that, he dragged all the horses even though it was cumbersome.
“her! They’re all well-managed guys. Where did you get so many horses?”
The merchant of the horse market admired the horses brought by the Zigong Merchants.
It wasn’t easy to find something like this.
Even the merchant could not hide his greed and looked at dozens of horses.
“Yesterday, dozens of these words came in, and today they come again.”
“You mean you came in yesterday too?”
“okay! An old man brought a horse alone. It was a pity that other merchants bought all of them…”
There were dozens of merchants buying and selling horses at the horse market. They were all in competition.
Depending on who secured a lot of better horses, it was possible to take the initiative in the horse market.
The merchant who looked at the words brought by the Zigong Corps with greedy eyes was also an ambitious person.
“I give you five gold coins for each horse. Sell them all to me.”
“I am not joking. That’s it! I will go to another merchant.”
“Ugh! Why are you in such a hurry? If so, how much do you want?”
“Ten gold coins per pill!”
“Let’s make it six.”
“Okay! I will not sell it.”
Sinpil Lee shook his head with an expression of displeasure.
He, too, was a worn-out merchant.
It is because he knows the basic market price of horses and knows the excellence of the horses that the bandits rode that he can go out so strongly.
“Good! Then I’ll give you seven. I can’t beat you any more.”
Still, when Lee Shin-pil made an expression that he did not like it, the merchant hurriedly added more conditions.
“Here is my inn. If you’re going to stay here for a night anyway, I’ll give you my inn. That would be better than struggling to find another place.”
“Of course, staying at an inn is free, right?”
“This kind of robbery… keke! good I will pay for all the expenses of staying in the inn for seven gold coins per pill.”
It was only then that Shinpil Lee smiled and took a fist.
“This is the first time I’ve seen a merchant more venomous than me. The Zigong Merchants will prosper greatly.”
“I’ll take it as a compliment.”
“It’s a compliment.”
The merchant took out a slip from his pocket and held it.
“Two hundred ten cats. When I go to the battlefield in Guizhou Province, I will change it to Geumja.”
“Thank you! But did you say that horses arrived in large numbers yesterday too?”
“Do you know who sold it?”
“I only heard that he was an old man. I don’t know any more.”
Sinpil Lee shook his head.
The merchant called the staff and ordered them to escort the people of the merchant to his inn.
Sinpil Lee returned to Pyowol with the proceeds from selling the horse.
He said, holding out the slip to Pyowol.
“This is the price for selling a horse.”
“Why are you giving me this?”
“Didn’t Sohyeop wipe out the bandits? It is the money earned thanks to the hard work of the small cooperative, so of course I have to give it.”
Pyo-wol looked at the slip for a while and accepted only half of it.
“This is enough, so spend the rest on travel expenses.”
“You don’t have to.”
“it’s okay! Go see.”
When Lee Shin-pil stepped away, Pyo-wol handed the slip he was holding to Do Yeon-san.
“You earned it, so you keep it.”
“I don’t need that much money…”
“There’s nothing wrong with having a lot of money. I have it.”
Do Yeon-san had no choice but to receive the slip. And he handed it over to Eun-yo.
“I don’t need it, so take care of it instead.”
Eun-yo frowned at A-mi for a moment at Do Yeon-san’s words, but she didn’t deny it.
Having managed several Giru in Chengdu, she was used to managing money.
“okay. I will have it, so tell me if you need it.”
Do Yeon-san smiled brightly.
Even Eun-yo stopped laughing at him.
With Do Yeon-san, the journey was not boring.
Pyowol looked at them for a while and said.
Other wagons were already moving along with Lee Shin-pil. Do Yeon-san hurriedly drove the carriage to avoid missing them.
Following the wagons, they arrived at a place called Changsin Gaekjan.
The building itself was shabby, but very large.
It was equipped with an independent barn and warehouse, so it was a perfect environment for the Zigong Merchant to stay.
“brother! I will put the horse in the stall and go in first.”
After putting the horse in the stall and moving the luggage, it would have taken a lot of time.
“I get it.”
Pyo-wol and Eun-yo got off the carriage first.
The two walked shoulder to shoulder to the inn.
The inside of the inn was crowded with people who had entered first.
The atmosphere was bound to be chaotic as the people from the upper ranks rushed in at once.
Pyowol and Eunyo found an empty seat.
The window seat overlooking the outside was intentionally left empty by the people of the Jagong Chamber for Pyowol and his party.
The two sat down and looked out the window.
The sun had gone down, but there were quite a few people walking around the streets.
Just by looking at people’s laid-back expressions, I could tell what the policewoman’s atmosphere was like.
Eunyo muttered, resting her chin on her hand.
Her gaze was fixed precisely on the people passing by on the street.
Afterimages of people formed on her unfocused retinas.
It would be better if I could see people with my eyes, but I could still figure out how people were feeling just by feeling.
Not everyone is like that, but at least the people passing by in front of the inn felt relaxed.
It was the first time I realized today that seeing people who do not show any impatience is so comfortable.
“You can be like that if you want.”
“I guess so.”
There was already a sufficient foundation in the saints.
There were also several Giru with her name.
If you put your mind to it, you can live a leisurely and comfortable life.
It would be the icing on the cake if Doyeonsan were with them.
Eun-Yo immediately shook her head.
It was a pleasant imagination, but it’s because you know that it doesn’t suit you.
She has already dipped her toe deep into the river.
Ganghoran is like a swamp, and once you step into it, it is impossible to get out without paying anything. And the price was very harsh.
Yet she wasn’t ready to pay the price.
Pyo-wol looked at Eun-yo in silence.
I didn’t know what Eun-yo was thinking, but I didn’t want to disturb her thoughts.
In the meantime, Doyeonsan, who had finished cleaning up, came in.
Do Yeon-san sat down next to Eun-yo as if it were natural.
“What’s the hardship…”
Do Yeon-san smiled, and Pyo-wol also smiled slightly. But his smile soon disappeared.
Do Yeon-san and Eun-yo made puzzled expressions as they looked at Pyo-wol’s face, which hardened in an instant.
It was then.
The door of the guesthouse burst open and a man and a boy entered.
He is in his late forties or early fifties. He had a sturdy physique, wore a pure white long robe, and carried a long sword two inches long at his waist. The most impressive thing was the white and beautiful fingers that were beyond age.
There were no bulges on the knuckles, as if looking at a woman’s seomseom corn.
Beside the elderly man was an emaciated-looking boy.
He was a little shorter than Do Yeon-san, but he seemed to have a weak personality by noticing others around him.
The elderly man looked around the inn and burst into a sigh.
“her! Are there any empty seats here?”
He had stopped by a few inns before coming here. All the guesthouses he visited were empty. That’s why I came here after wandering around the streets.
At that time, a strangeness flashed in the eyes of the mature man.
His eyes were fixed on the window seat.
Pyowol was also looking straight at the mature man.
Suddenly, the middle-aged man’s lips squeezed, and an inexplicable exclamation flowed out.
At his exclamation, the boy raised his head and naturally looked at Pyowol.
In an instant, a smile appeared on the boy’s face.
He ran, calling the moon.
Pyowol also got up from his seat and greeted the boy.
“How is your brother? Is that right?”
The boy hugged Pyowol’s waist and looked up.
“How have you been?”
“You really are my brother. How is your brother here?”
Pyowol said as he tousled the boy’s hair.
“You look good.”
The boy hugging Pyo-wol’s waist was Nam Shin-woo.
A boy who hid in Dang So-chu’s studio when Pyo-wol settled in Chengdu.
Nam Shin-woo had abilities similar to the Ghost King, who was the most incomprehensible of Kangho.
It was the ability of immortality.
In order to catch Nam Shin-woo, Chilseongdang and numerous other warriors pursued him. Immortality was the ability that all powerful people in the world dream of.
They thought that if they could catch Nam Shin-woo and dig up his secret, they would be able to live forever.
If Pyo-wol hadn’t protected him, Nam Shin-wu would not have been a person in this world anymore.
Then the old man approached.
Pyowol’s eyes looking at him grew colder.
“It’s been a while.”
A mature man called Fengjian looked at Pyo-wol’s body.
He was wearing a look of sincere admiration.
‘No matter how much the Yangtze River’s back waves push out the front waves, isn’t this really too much?’
The achievement when I first saw Pyowol was also great. Still, at that time, I was able to gauge the level of Pyowol. But now, I couldn’t read how much the realm was.
‘The world is so unfair. Climbing one stair is too much for some, even if they endure all their lives, but who jumps several steps at once?’
Pyowol’s appearance now reminded him of a man he knew in the past. He was also a person who could not be understood by ordinary common sense.
Feng Zun shook his head slightly and let out a sigh.
“Now they are called Shinigami, right? I am listening to your rumors.”
“What are you doing here?”
“Somehow it came all the way here. There are no seats, so can we sit together?”
Feng Zun answered and sat down in the empty seat. Then Nam Shin-woo quickly brought a chair and sat down next to him.
Poongjon’s eyes turned to Doyeonsan and Eunyo.
He let out a groan involuntarily.
Feng Zun stared at the two for a long time.
Nam Shin-woo tilted his head, as if he did not understand the reaction of the rich man.
Fengjian let out a sigh.
“Because you are strange, all the children you take with you are also strange.”
In the eyes of others, they may look like ordinary children, but in Feng Zun’s eyes, they were extraordinary.
Even if there was just one person like that, the world would be in an uproar, but there were two people by Pyowol’s side.
Pungjon’s eyes turned to Nam Shinwoo.
‘If you add this child, it’s three? What on earth is it that attracts all the evils in the world like this? Would it have been better to kill him then?’
