Queen of flowers - chapter 173
After waiting for about half an hour, a scout followed Rob to report, “Majia Village is empty and not even a chicken or dog is left …”
“From the various traces, the common people in the village should have been trapped by the vagrant (roving) bandits. About seven or eight days ago, they wandered to the area of Wulin County …”
Feng Liao, Su Mingjian and other’s faces changed together.
Vagrant Bandits! It turned out that there were vagrants!
Refugees and vagrants, although only one word apart, were two very different people in nature.
Refugees were ordinary civilians who had to leave their homes and go elsewhere to live their lives after the disaster. They were the ones who needed sympathy and help.
In a more official description that Yong Ruo had heard in her previous life: They were just the affected people.
Vagrant bandits wouldn’t wait pitifully for others to sympathize with them and come to their relief. They would wander around and live by robbing others.
Wherever they went, the social order was severely disrupted.
They were growing very fast, because they would ensnare the victims and rob them, turning the victims into bandits like them after putting them to a dead end.
In famine, people’s worst fear was bandits.
Once their power had grown, even if it was finally suppressed by the imperial court, blood would flow like the river and corpses would stack into a mountain.
If the court couldn’t suppress it, then it would become a matter of the fall of the dynasty.
Feng Liao and Su Mingjian, who were at the core of imperial power, were very clear about the stakes in their hearts.
“And …” the scout hurriedly said, “Most of the houses in the village were burned, except for one yard. Because … because …”
Feng Liao stared at him desperately, and shouted, “Because of what? Say it!”
The scout took a deep breath and said aloud, “Because there is an anti-poem in the main room of that yard!” +
“Anti-poem? What is it about?” Feng Liao’s hands trembled slightly, and his palms became a little sweaty.
“I don’t dare to say! Wang Ye and other’s should see it by themselves!”
Feng Liao glared at him and said, “Let’s go and see!”
He turned to look at Yong Ruo, and said as softly as possible, “You’ll be beside me! Don’t be afraid. We have a lot of guards, and generally people can’t harm us.”
Yong Ruo said witha calm smile, “I’m not afraid of anything with Wang Ye besides me.”
Feng Liao barely smiled at her, and said, “I’m afraid now!”
Both anxiety and remorse were in his heart: Ruoruo, I really shouldn’t have agreed to your request! I know that anything can happen in a famine, why did I agree with your request?
With the presence of bandits, he didn’t dare to leave Yong Ruo alone. It was safer to take her with him. Fortunately, her riding and physical strength were very good!
But, what should Xu Taiyi do?
How should he clean up those bandits?
Feng Liao’s thoughts turned chaotic as he sped up to Majia Village.
In Yong Ruo’s mind, she was thinking of several rebel incidents in previous history like Li Zicheng, Wang Chao …
Li Zicheng directly overturned the mountains and rivers of the Ming Dynasty.
Wang Chao (A rebel) was finally suppressed by the official army, but the civilian casualties he caused were incalculable, and the damage to social order was inestimable, which directly accelerated the demise of the Tang Dynasty and indirectly opened up the chaos in the five generations and ten countries.
Yong Ruo sighed in her heart: To this day, no matter for the people here, or for his own and political life, Feng Liao has to deal with these bandits as soon as possible.
Even if he knew there was a trap ahead, he had to step on it!
