Listening to all the explanations, Hyun Jong stared at Chung-Myung with an expression that was hard to explain.
His gaze swept through the people sitting in front.
Chung-Myung, Baek Cheon, Baek Sang, Yoo-Esul, Yoon-Jong, Jo-Gol, Dang-Soso, 거기에 Hye Yeon과 Im Sobyong까지.
"to occupy this island."
"I'm going to do the water quality...?"
"Oh, my God, Jang Moon-in! I explained it like that, but you still don't understand!"
Chung-Myung thumped his chest as if he was frustrated.
"It's not water quality, it's a fair toll."
"…...get tolls on the river?"
"Isn't that a number?"
Chung-Myung and Hyun Jong's eyes were intertwined in Ho Gong.
Of course, it was Chung-Myung who turned his eyes first amid the complicated intersection of eyes.
"No, well... If you say so, it depends on what you think, but...….”
"Now, why are you pulling out a long sword?"
"Oh, my God! Just calm down!"
"Let go! Let go of me!"
Hyun Jong took off his students. Blood stood in his eyes.
"I'm done now I do. You even hear that his student is going to touch the water quality! I should have cut him off before I saw this!"
"Are you capable of that?”
"Hyun Young, whose side are you on, man!"
"Ask what are you doing? Of course, I'm on Chung-Myung's side."
The bubble boiled in Hyun Jong's mouth.
I chose the wrong person to ask. Yes, Hyun Young. Of course he's on Chung-Myung's side.
Then Hyun Young said in a calm voice.
"And it's not that wrong, depending on what you think."
"Don't you get the toll?"
"It doesn't make sense that it's a number just because you're on the street tax. So all the boatmen on board and paid for it are numbers?"
"So all the people who ship in the Janggang are numerical, are they lawless?"
"…he does, too."
Hyun Jong sits down again. It's not that wrong to hear.
"……No, I said the same thing…….”
"Words usually have different meanings and communications depending on who does them."
Chung-Myung also thought so and knew it wasn't wrong, but he felt strangely bad.
Hyun Young, who glanced at his sullen face, grinned and said to Hyun Jong again.
"It's not a bad idea if you look at it. If the word "pass tax" bothers you, you can get paid when you pick up people on a boat to and from the island. Let the island be used for free."
"First of all, there is no guarantee that this will not happen again. You can't chase them all the way over here every time. And Hwasan has to provide a safe route to the Milky Way. It's a lot of damage right now."
"Oh, yeah, that's true.….”
Hyun Jong, who had been thinking for a while, nodded for now.
He may have taken out the crane in the past, but now he has understood for some reason what to do about his business. Thanks to you, I know how important this is.
"But we couldn't have taken over here, could we? What about the training? What about the birthplace?"
"Oh, that's fine."
"I'm going to take it from Green Forest. I'm done talking to King Greenrim."
Hyun Jong blinked and turned his eyes, and Im Sobong smiled and nodded."That's right."
"…You mean the green forest?"
"It's not because the mountains are good, but because I ate and lived, I became a bandit. What does it matter if it's a mountain or water if it's money?"
It's him... Well, that's true. Besides, bandits or numbers are bandits anyway.
"I know what the writer is concerned about. But now, Noklim is also increasing its legitimate business by not harming the people of both countries in accordance with the will of Hwasan Sinryong and Cheon Woo-mang, but receiving only reasonable tolls."
"…Isn't it a problem in itself to get a toll?"
"Instead, it escorts us. I'll escort you perfectly until you cross the mountain. Those who were previously compatible or harmed by other petty robbers are welcoming with double numbers."
You're welcoming me with double eyelids?
"The... the bandit...….No, do the greenlings like it?"
"Some of them get irritated with their frustration, but what can we do? If you don't like the temple, the monk should leave.”
"…I didn't leave because I didn't like it."
Everyone looked back at Hye Yeon at the sudden voice. Hye Yeon's face, which was stabbed for no reason, turned red in an instant.
"You didn't like it."
"You must have hated it."
"No wonder I didn't go back to the sound of my voice.”
"Oh, Amitabha! Amitabha Buddha!
"Just make a lot of money."
Chung-Myung with his tongue opened his mouth again.
"Anyway, it's not bad. It's not like we're stuck here, and we take care of it at Green Forest. Instead, we can safely wade the Milky Way, and we can take half the toll from merchants who come and go.”
That's a fair share of profits. Oh, my god.
After all, Hwasan doesn't do anything...….Yes, oh, my...….
At that time, Hyun Sang, who was quietly watching the situation, opened his mouth.
"I understand what you're thinking about doing this. But I'm nervous. This place is Janggang. You've already ruined two watercolors, and if you take it all the way here and sit down, would you stay still in that watercolumn.
"On the way, I saw you install a cannon around the island and on a new bridge. However, it is not an easy place to be able to block with just a few of those guns. Don't tell me you're underestimating the watercolors just because you broke one or two?"
Chung-Myung shakes his hand.
If King Heukryong leads all the watercolors of the Yellow Sea, this island will be taken in less than half a day. To prevent that, all major forces, whether green forest or Hwasan, must be stationed here.
But it is impossible.
"You don't have to worry about that.”
"The Black Dragon cannot attack this place."
"Maybe soon it won't be a big deal here.”
Chung-Myung twisted the corners of his mouth.
"If it were before, I would have attacked him right away, but King Heukryong can't move now.”
"Why? What happened to King Heukryong?"
"No, it's not something that's going to happen, it's going to happen.”
"……I don't understand what you mean."
"You'll find out soon enough.”
Chung-Myung rolled up the corners of his mouth.
"If I'm right, things will start happening right now. So just wait a little bit for now."
Hyun Jong looked at Chung-Myung with an expression of ignorance.
"Did you write something down?""It's true that he used his hands. That's what happens even if you don't use your hands. 'Cause I've got other people to work with."
"Who the hell?"
"I don't know that for sure. Just……."
Chung-Myung thought for a moment and laughed.
"You can't refuse to give me a chance to do that, can you? Let's have a hell of a time."
Unlike his smiling mouth, his eyes were dim.
There is no apparent conspiracy. However, Chung-Myung's intuition did not miss the strange unnaturality flowing between these events.
Usually, when you feel this way on the battlefield, there is a well-made trap in front of it.
In that case, there are only three ways out of the trap.
One is not to go.
The other is to break through with skill.
"to make things more difficult for the other person to handle as a trap."
If you've made a waterway, you can take a waterway.
Instead, I will certainly take the benefits. It's not about money, it's about proper gain.
Chung-Myung's eyes crossed Hyun Jong and went somewhere far away. You can only guess that you are looking very far away, but no one knew what you were looking at.
Hyun Jong sighed softly.
I don't know.
This child's idea goes beyond him, it's a fact he already knew, so he just has to believe it. Hana Hyun-jong was worried that this might put another burden on Chung-Myung.
"Yeah, I know what you're thinking for now. So we can leave this place at Green Forest and go back to Hwasan?"
"Oh, yeah. That's true, but...….”
"I've been waiting for you to come. You brought a lot of Mundos, didn't you?”
Chung-Myung, who clapped loudly, laughed like a child.
"Then let's get started. I just need to do one simple thing.”
Hyun Jong somehow felt uneasy about the word.
* * *
A large vessel came into the dock.
Soon, a large rope was thrown from the ship, and the ship and land were firmly connected. A large wooden bridge stretched between the ship and the land, and people began to get off the ship one by one.
However, all the faces of those who got off the ship looked like they were going to die.
"Oh, my God!"
A merchant who got off the ship threw his belongings to the floor.
Usually, it is a bundle of precious items and should be served like a new sputum, but the man threw it to the ground without hesitation and shouted angrily.
"Again, again! d*mn it!"
Then, other merchants who were waiting to board the ship approached and asked with sad faces.
"…was it robbed again?"
"For God's sake, he's taken everything except the insides! What the hell are we supposed to do with this?"
"What kind of water?”
"I don't know! They don't even know where they are anymore! I'm just taking a little boat and I'm taking everything that's worth my while!"
There was a deep depth on the faces of the merchants.
The numbers are rampant in the Janggang River. It may have been yesterday or today, but it has been unusual to see them jumping around recently.
In the past, people who didn't take all the money or luggage they had when they paid the toll, but now they didn't even reveal their watercolors, leaving no coins behind.As such things happened repeatedly, merchants were also afraid to board ships that went to and from the Janggang River.
"How many times is this? This!"
"What the hell are you doing with the coffin? Why do you leave them alone?"
"Have the coffin ever worked properly? I'm sure you're getting paid by the enemy!"
"Shh! Keep your voice down, man!"
"Did I say something wrong?"
Those who are excited are starting to say what they can't say and what they can't say.
"For God's sake, I'm going to live a long way to live, and if I'm robbed, how am I going to feed my wife and children? I'd rather die with a knife! The river is full of water! It's a coffin, a file room, no one cares!"
"Oh, no. Not everyone doesn't care."
"Didn't you hear? Hwasan!"
"I heard that the Hwasan faction of Cheon U-men smashed the Daegyeong Chae. And in the midst of that, you've beaten up a new watercolour, haven't you?"
"Hwasan? What about him?"
"Why is there a reason for the consultation by Hwasan? "Wasan was the place where bandits ran into the mountains, smashed Dave and robbed his warehouse to save the people."
"This time again, I heard that the enemy had captured the people and ran all the way here!"
"Oh, my God. Oh, my God.….Is that true?"
"Hey! The merchant is so late to hear from you! You know Mr. Chun, right?”
"The man was taken away by the enemy and rescued by the Wasans. He's telling that story a dozen times a day. It's so catchy.”
"Mr. Chun is not the kind of person who would make up nonsense."
"I told you! The Gufas are watching with their hands off, but they're not heavenly."
"Oh, my God, such a consultation fingerprint is still...….”
"Also, it seems that Hwasan Jang has made a decision this time."
"They say they take over a place in the Jang River and send ships so that merchants and those who want to cross the river can cross without any problems."
"He, is that true?"
"I told you. Besides, it's not that far from here. Well, if you can't take the river, it's not a problem to cross."
"That's a good way to breathe! But will you just watch the channel?"
"What if they don't stay still? Cheon Umenang is the place where two of the Four Heavenly Halls and Sae Oeosa Palace are located in Hwasan! It's not a place where you can do anything about it."
"…That sounds like it."
Those who were having a conversation realized the strength of the alliance.
From their point of view, the most frightening and grim reaper-like thing is the watercollection. Even the prestigious old file room was not a place to be recklessly touched, so there was no breakthrough, which made me even more afraid.
However, such a watercolour cannot help but enter my inner room and camped out by Wasan.
"Was the power of the Heavenly Fellow so great?"
"I'm going to take this opportunity to change my client."
"Think about it. Wouldn't it be natural for the top to suffer if the intestines were so clogged? But if Hwasan steps out of the way and makes a path, the top with connections will pass without a problem."
"Then where will it go better in the future? This is too obvious."
"Tsk tsk tsk tsk. The merchant! wait like that If you go beyond the heavens, you won't have a bean powder! You'll make a lot of money if you move ahead of time."“…….”
"Anyway, I'm going to do that, so you can quickly find out. Apparently, within ten days, Hwasan will be completely on his way."
Merchants each rolled their heads and blinked.
Is that true?
'If it's true....’
Someone was just surprised, someone was just admiring.
However, some quick-witted people realized that the world was changing.
Wasan in the Isles, or the wasan, has now begun to extend its influence to the Janggang River. It may be a small change now, but it was hard to guess how much it would have in the future.
"I hope it works out for Hwasan.”
"Wasan is the only one we've given when we're having a hard time, whether for profit or for consultation. Those d*mn old file rooms are all about negotiations and all that talk, but there's nothing they're doing!"
"That's what I'm saying!"
"Yes, you bastards!"
"Let everything go wrong!"
Among those who threw their lives into the Janggang River, admiration for Chun Woo-men and Hwasan and disappointment with the Goofile Bang spread and grew.
And rumors about the situation spread quickly and soon reached Shaolin and Shudang.
The scale of work that began with a small foundation has grown at an enormous rate.
As if the fire that fell into the dry forest was burning.
