The young man who posed the question was Wang Yuchi, and he was originally one of Jiang Wu's students. But having gone through several huge disasters and wandered around the Central Plains with Wang Fugui for a few months, his appearance had become more mature.
Along the way, everyone had suffered a lot. When they finally arrived at Stronghold 144, everyone was worn out from the journey.
During this period, Wang Yuchi also showed potential in his abilities. After learning a lot from Wang Fugui, he was now his right-hand man.
Wang Fugui said proudly, "We came here first to build a working relationship with the people of Fortress 178; this is what we call seizing the initiative. Other people might wait for the trade route to open up in half a year's time, but we can't afford to do so. The savings Xiaosu left for us are drying up. If we see him again and he asks how much money we have left, we can't embarrass ourselves."
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
We highly recommend you to enjoy the beauty of the original words.
