Chapter 24 Renting a House
Gu Yundong is actually very heartbroken. Twenty taels of silver, for her now, is a huge sum of money.
Now it's just a city gate, and all of them have to be turned in. It's just a robbery.
The soldier took the money and looked at her again.
"Come with me." Turning around and taking her to the side to register.
After everything was done and Gu Yundong stood inside the city gate, she slowly exhaled.
The three Yang clan standing beside her also imitated her and exhaled in unison, and the expression of relief was exactly the same, which made the soldier who had been standing beside them unable to help but laugh.
It wasn't until Gu Yundong looked at him that he coughed lightly and told him, "After entering the city, remember to keep a low profile and don't conflict with people. There are a lot of refugees in the city now. If there is trouble, you will be arrested first. things."
He is not actually a soldier. His surname is Nie, and the prefect is his uncle. For some reason, he was temporarily recruited here to help guard the city gate for two days.
A few days ago, the prefect of the prefect received news that there was a riot in Qing'an, and the refugees broke into the city to burn, kill and loot, slaughtered two officials in a row, and asked for reinforcements here.
Commander Zhao personally led troops to Qing'an City to pacify the chaos. The news was also widely spread in their Xuanhe Palace, which caused the people in the city to have no goodwill towards the refugees.
The prefect has set the condition of 'one person five two' to enter the city, so as not to block all the refugees outside, so that others can't see hope and take risks, but at the same time, a group of refugees who are too poor to enter the city will be burdened by the city. . And persuaded the big families in the city to go out of the city to make porridge to stabilize people's hearts.
This approach is quite effective. You can see from these people outside the city that they are not causing trouble and do not cause trouble, but they do not add too much burden to them.
Gu Yundong just nodded when she heard it, she naturally wouldn't take the initiative to cause trouble, but if others saw that their orphans and widowed mothers were easy to bully, then it wouldn't be her fault.
It's just that she is not very familiar with the city at the moment. The soldier seems to be very talkative, so he asked a few more questions, "Do you know which inn in the city is cheap and safe?"
Nie Cong gave her a strange look, she still wanted to stay in an inn? Have money on you? Can't see it.
"Don't think about the inn, even the most remote places are probably full now."
"Is there a rental house?"
Nie Cong laughed, "There must be some, but there was an incident of hurting people by refugees not long ago, and everyone is very vigilant, so..."
Gu Yundong understands, just don't rent it to refugees like them.
That is difficult, I thought I could finally rest after entering the city, but I didn’t expect that there is no place to stay now, so it might be better to be outside the city.
Gu Yunshu and Gu Yunke both looked up at her, and the two little guys also looked worried.
Nie Cong didn't know why, but he couldn't help laughing when he looked at them.
After hesitating for a while, he finally said, "If you really want to find a place to stay, I have a place here. My first cousin aunt's house has an vacant room, she lives alone, and you just don't have one. Adult men, it's convenient to live in the past. It's just that the rent is a bit expensive, and you have to keep your household registration certificate with me, do you think?"
