Chapter 69: Deal (1)

In these times, resources were scarce, private deals were forbidden, and it was difficult to move goods. The people living in the countryside grew their own food, but those in the city received government food rations. They needed cash and food coupons to purchase them.

Many of them did not have enough to eat. In order to survive, they were forced to purchase expensive food on the black market.

Food was especially valuable in these times.

Gu Qingyao knew there were several black markets in town.

She carried her basket to one of the black markets. This one was situated in an open space. Most crucially… it was easier to flee the area. She had an unblocked view and could see everything at a glance.

Gu Qingyao carried her basket on her back, and entered the crowd, looking for a target.

Most of the people were here to buy food, or why else would they be at the black market? The moment Gu Qingyao appeared with a basket on her back, people started to take notice.

Her basket was heavy. They could tell at a glance that it contained something.

Gu Qingyao looked around for a while and identified an old lady who was dressed a little better. Next to her stood a young man, who was probably her son.

Gu Qingyao’s eyes flickered and she slowly walked over. She lowered her voice and tried to sound elderly. “Elder sister, do you want some food?”

The old lady grew excited. “Do you have fine grain?”

Gu Qingyao said, “I do. I also have some meat and eggs.”

The eyes of the old lady and her son immediately lit up. “I want them, I want them. I’ll take whatever you have. Sister, please don’t sell them to anyone else. Let’s go somewhere else. I’ll take them all. My daughter-in-law is doing her confinement now and I urgently need these things.”

Gu Qingyao nodded. “Let’s go to the alleys up ahead! They extend in all directions and there is no one there. You go ahead and I’ll be there soon.”

The old lady immediately nodded. “Sure, sure, sure! Sister, please don’t sell it to anyone else! I’ll buy everything!”
