Chapter 68: Pretense

This was a small alley and few people lived in the area.

In an era where there was a shortage of goods, the population was small. Many had died of starvation. When the famine was at its most severe, the population in a town might even have decreased by two-thirds.

In the villages, some belonging to the poorer brigades had also died.

Now it was the seventies and things were much better. But the population was still small.

Gu Qingyao knew that Wang Guozhu had a small house here, where he brought grain to exchange on the black market.

He worked in a textile factory. His wife, Zhou Hong, also worked. The two of them were relatively well-off, and sometimes, they even managed to get a little extra food.

Gu Qingyao went over to the small house and glanced inside. Sure enough, Zhang Xiaohui and Gu Ruoqing were in there. She hurried back to the road to wait.

Sure enough, Wang Guozhu appeared at midday.

Gu Qingyao sneered. She placed what she had prepared earlier at a corner of the road.

It was a small bundle, wrapped in ordinary cloth. Inside were an apple and three roasted chicken legs.

The cloth parted slightly, so that part of the apple could be seen.

Gu Qingyao hid in a corner and waited for Wang Guozhuo. She flicked a stone to create a noise. Wang Guozhu, who was acting furtively, was already on edge. The sudden noise startled him.

He looked in the direction of the noise and saw the small cloth bundle.

It was clear that someone had accidentally dropped it.

The apple could clearly be seen.

Wang Guozhu’s eyes brightened. When he was sure there was no one around, he rushed over to open it, only to discover the three chicken legs.

The chicken legs looked glossy and smelt heavenly. Wang Guozhu almost drooled when he saw them.
