Otaku Engineer in Great Tang Dynasty - Chapter 1801
Chapter 1801 The trip to the north, worrying!
Fenzhou, the county seat of Xihe County.
“Mr. Mo, how did everyone sleep last night? Are you almost rested?”
The best Inn in the county—Penglai Inn first floor lobby, Li Tai asked Mo Chui while having breakfast with Tiedan and the others.
Academy has dispatched thirty two Key Engineering Projects members, most of them are students, and some are Mr. of Academy Physics. Anyway, the gentlemen of Academy are older than students and out of school. Life experience should also be richer, so the students’ eating and drinking are arranged by Mo Huai and other gentlemen!
Hehe! This Inn is not bad. It is quite quiet at night. Only then I see everyone is very energetic. I think I should have a good rest last night! After breakfast, we will leave. It’s located in Taiyuan. The distance of more than one hundred miles will certainly not be reached today. We will stop at noon and strive to settle in Qi County before dark. We will start from Qi County tomorrow morning and will probably reach Taiyuan tomorrow evening!”
Mo Chui laughed, easily replied.
This time led the teachers and students to go northward, the “event funds” given by the Academy were quite sufficient. Before leaving, Yan Silu specially explained to him. The teachers and students of the Academy must eat, drink and live well. Don’t distress your money, this is what Yan Silu means and Li Zexuan means!
Because thirty people in this line are elite members in the Academy Key Engineering Projects, it is the “apple of one’s eye” of the Academy. This time, the students went very hard on the north, the road is far away, and the horse and horse are fatigued. Academy naturally impossible suffered them in terms of food and accommodation!
So from the way of Lantian County to Xihe County, Mo Chui took Academy with everyone. The best Inn, the most delicious food, in order to ease the carriage of students on the road Fatigue!
“en! Then bring some dry food and strive to arrive in Qi County tonight!”
Li Tai ordered nodded and decided.
Although he is a student and Mo Chui is a sir, he is the commander-in-chief of this northward move, and the person who ultimately makes the decision should naturally be him.
And Mo Chui also recognizes Li Tai’s innate talent in engineering, so on this way, Li Tai’s overall situation, command and dispatch, he is not at all unhappy, but he is willing to help beside him. Li Tai checked and filled in the vacancies, because Li Tai was born in the Imperial Family and was born with a certain commanding ability, but after all, he is young and not as rich in life experience as Mo Chui. Often at this time, Mo Chui is required to come forward!
After the two agreed, Dugu Xin came in from the outside and whispered to Li Tai’s ear: “His Royal Highness, the scout team will have led the way, and the rest of the army can be opened at any time, waiting for His Royal Highness to come out of the city to converge. !”
Although Mo Chui gave the entire Inn last night, at this time not at all the other guests in the Inn hall, but Dugu Xin, who was used to the military, was very alert, he chose to use this This way of speaking is to avoid revealing the whereabouts of Li Tai and the others!
This time, along with the Academy teachers and students, there was also a thousand Imperial Palace forbidden troops headed by Dugu Xin and Dugu Feiying. Because the mission involved secrets, their entire group not at all alarmed the local government along the way. The county seat is just the Academy’s people entering the city to live in the Inn. The Thousand Forbidden Forces are secretly stationed outside the city. Under normal circumstances, Dugu Xin will bring several personal guards to protect Li Tai, while Dugu Feiying leads the army outside the city!
It’s not Li Tai, Mo Chui and the others who treat them differently, but the students and gentlemen of Academy, whose physical fitness is definitely not comparable to those of Dugu Xin who have been in the military for many years. It’s very hard. If you let them sleep in camps outside the city like the forbidden army, it is estimated that most of the people in the Academy have fallen down before arriving at Taiyuan!
“Is the material of en! Academy safe?”
Li Tai ordered nodded and asked softly.
The northbound trip was mainly to build a telegraph relay station. When we came out of Lantian County, there were three Carriages in the Carriage team of Academy, which were loaded with the machines, parts and other materials needed to build a telegraph relay station. It is impossible to bring them into the city or into the Inn. In case of being caught by a thief, they would be blind if they walked so far, so Academy’s supplies have been kept under the guard of Dugu Xin all the way!
“Your Highness, rest assured, supplies are safe!”
Dugu Xin briefly replied.
Academy’s three Carriage supplies can be taken away under the guard of a thousand imprisoned troops. Unless the enemy can send 5,000 soldiers and horses to kill all the 1,000 imprisoned soldiers, it is impossible to take away the Academy supplies.
Shopkeeper’s eyes narrowed. He listened to the other person’s accent, knowing that the other person might be from the Capital City area. It’s just that the other person is dressed like a rich person, so he is too lazy to take care of it!
As you know, the big man took a hanged coin from his waist, “Pa” was shot in front of Shopkeeper, and then said: “This is the usual money. If you answer some questions truthfully, a certain house has other weights. Thanks!”
Consistent money. For the beginning of Tang Dynasty, where prices are extremely low, in the eyes of ordinary people, consistent money is already a huge sum of money. Shopkeeper is naturally a rich person. This is not bad, but answers a few questions. , You can get consistent money, for him, it is still a very cost-effective deal, but he is a bit strange, is it too heavy for the other party to hang so much copper money on his body?
Here, I have to say that since Yanhuang Bank was established and Imperial Court personally came forward to promote Tang Yuan(currency), more and more people in Great Tang began to use it slowly and gradually accepted Tang Yuan(currency) After getting used to the convenience brought by Tang Yuan(currency), almost no one would be willing to use copper coins again, especially in Guanzhong area. At present, many states and counties are basically difficult to see copper coins in large transactions!
“hehe! Say it! Say it!”
The Shopkeeper smiled and reached out to take the copper money that the big man patted on the table, and then said: “There were indeed a group of teenagers and several adults staying at this Inn last night. Why did this guest inquire about this?”
“Don’t ask if you shouldn’t ask!”
The man lightly glanced at Shopkeeper. There was no emotion or vitality in his eyes. He then asked: “How many people are there in the party? How many are there in each group?”
“Yeah, this…they have a total of about 38 people, of which there seem to be more than 20 teenagers, um…the exact number of old man can’t remember. Among the adults, it seems that there are five or six people among them. Guards!”
Shopkeeper recalled a moment, and was replied.
“Five or six escorts? Then you know where they are going and what are they doing?”
The big man asked again.
Shopkeeper hearing this waved: “This guest, you laughed, I’m just Inn Shopkeeper, where do you know this? And our friends come to Inn, but never inquire about the guests’ secrets!”
Hearing this, the big man changed his face in an instant, and showed a fierce look.
Shopkeeper was taken aback, unable to bear two steps back, and quickly said: “This guest, old man really don’t know this, and…and not far from our Inn is the County Official…”
The implication is that you better not make trouble here, or else the official from the County Official will come over and arrest you in jail!
Finally, Shopkeeper winked at Xiao Er, who was not far away. The little two ordered nodded and cautiously leaned towards the door. He wanted to go to the County Official!
Great Hanton for a moment, coldly snorted. He obviously noticed the movement of the second child behind him. It stands to reason that he can tie up Shopkeeper and the second one at this time, but then he will be wanted by the government. Thinking about it, instead of continuing to struggle with Shopkeeper, he turned around and left.
As for the “other thanks” he said earlier, it is naturally impossible!
“Shopkeeper’s, this person is definitely not a good person, the Noble Son who just left is afraid that it is not in danger, shall we go to the government to report to the official?”
Xiaoer went out and looked at it. When the big man disappeared on the street, he ran in quickly and said to Shopkeeper behind the account desk.
The second one is not stupid. He can see that the previous big man asked Li Tai entire group about the whereabouts of it was not good intentions, so he suggested that Shopkeeper go directly to the official.
“Report to you, save yourself a lot of business, and get out of work quickly!”
But Shopkeeper didn’t think so. He was just a business man. He didn’t know Li Tai and Fang Cai. He didn’t know each other. He couldn’t offend the other party for their sake. One less thing!
“Oh~! Yes, Shopkeeper’s~!”
The second child rubbed his head and left in a daze.
On the official road from Xihe County to Qi County, twelve Carriages loaded with Academy teachers and students and the machines and parts necessary to build a telegraph relay station were moved towards the northeast under the guard of more than a thousand Imperial Palace forbidden troops.
Now that the large team has left the county town, there is nothing to hide in the forbidden army carried by Dugu Xin. This entire group looks like the Imperial Court is escorting something to the north. Now the Great Tang is displaying heavy soldiers on the northern border The situation in the two countries was suddenly tense, and many grain transport teams were rushing northward from Guanzhong, so it was not surprising that pedestrians on the road saw the team of Dugu Xin!
It’s just that none of them knows. In Carriage, there are more than 30 teachers and students in Prince of Wei and Yanhuang Academy of Science!
“Tiedan, Wenhao, what do you say Headmaster is doing now?”
In the Carriage, Li Tai suddenly opened the mouth and said unfathomable mystery.
Tiedan sitting opposite him, now frowned, paused for a moment, and replied: “Before we left the Academy, the Master was already in the barracks. Should we practice soldiers in the Black Armoured Army?”
Meng Wenhao turned his head towards Li Tai, he didn’t understand what Li Tai meant by mentioning Li Zexuan at this time.
See Li Tai sighed, said:
“Last time we went north to kill locusts, it was Headmaster who accompanied you, so even if you encounter such problems on the road, Headmaster can solve it for you. But this time, when you go northward to repair the telegraph relay station, Headmaster too busy to spare Time for a separate task, let me be at the front, but in terms of planning strategies, how can I compare with Headmaster? It’s better to go to Taiyuan. I’m worried about going to Yun Prefecture. If Turkic people know our purpose, I’m afraid they won’t give up. Ah! I always feel that our journey will not be too smooth!”
