Chapter 41 The Use of Slaves
Hearing Lu Bu finally let go. Yu Fuluo felt as if he heard some fairy voice. But he didn’t notice that Lu Bu ignored Yu Fuluo and his two hundred guards in his choice of words.

Yu Fuluo quickly asked his men to throw their bows, arrows and scimitars all over the floor. Then he started to hit the horse and left backwards. At this time, Yu Fuluo had thousands of thoughts running through his mind, and he was very tangled.

Do you want to fall out with Lu Bu? When Yu Fuluo had already left Lu Bu’s side, he was within a stone’s throw. Yu Fuluo still had not made up his mind. If it wasn’t because Yu Fuluo was indecisive, how could a person who dared to murder his own Shanyu be so indecisive?

The reason why Yu Fulo was undecided was just because he was never sure. With the two hundred guards around him, can he defeat Lu Bu? You must know that Lu Bu left a profound impression on Yu Fuluo. He was a murderer who could not be offended. When he was not sure of victory, Yu Fuluo was really unwilling to provoke Lu Bu.

But just go back like this? Yu Fuluo is really indifferent. Why did Yu Fuluo say that after returning to the territory of the Huns, he would become the Chanyu of the Huns. If others knew that he had brought so many people with him, he would be so scared by a teenage child that he would not even dare to fight back. Then what kind of majesty does he have as a Chanyu? He might as well go home and sell sweet potatoes.

When Yu Fuluo was thinking about it and couldn’t make up his mind. The sound of horse hooves came from the distance. It turned out that Ding Yuan finally came over with his troops. Ding Yuan saw from afar that Lu Bu was facing two hundred Huns soldiers alone. Not only did Lu Bu show no fear, but the Huns slowly backed away, greatly surprised.

When Yu Fuluo saw the Han cavalry coming from a distance. Finally making up his mind, he turned his horse’s head and rode quickly towards the grassland.

By the time Fu Luo sat down on his horse, he was already three arrows away from Lu Bu. Only then did Yu Fuluo dare to turn his head and say something harsh and tepid to Lu Bu.

“Lu Bu, I will remember today’s events in Fuluo. We will meet again later.”

As for what these cruel words meant, what did Yu Fuluo remember? Lu Bu couldn’t understand. But with these harsh words, Yu Fuluo finally felt that he had regained his face.

Watching Yu Fuluo go away, Lu Bu slowly put away the long bow in his hand. At this time, Lu Bu turned his head and looked at a divine horse not far away. The second horse was slightly taller than the other horses, and its body was bright white without a trace of hair. What’s even more rare is that as the Shanyu of Xubu Guduhou, after Xubu Guduhou Shanyu was shot by the Yufuluo people, the other horses kept neighing and were very frightened. But the white horse didn’t even neigh. It just stood there and stared blankly at the body of Xubu Guduhou Shanyu.

In fact, the reason why Lu Bu suddenly stood up and fought for Xubu Guduhou Shanyu’s body was not because Lu Bu wanted to use Xubugudu Hou Shanyu’s head to receive some reward. Mainly because Lu Bu fell in love with this horse. I don’t want this horse to be taken away by Yu Fuluo. Only then did Lu Bu come forward and defeated the enemy with his supreme courage.

Fortunately, Ding Yuan came over with people at the last moment. Otherwise, it’s hard to say what Lu Bu’s play would be like.

As he watched, this divine horse finally fell into his hands. Lu Bu couldn’t wait to jump off his horse and took a few steps to come to this magnificent horse. He reached out and touched the horse’s head, put his mouth in front of the horse’s ear and said, “Your old master is dead. From now on, you will follow me.”

As soon as Lu Bu finished speaking, the white horse raised its head, and a high-pitched neigh came from the horse’s mouth, appearing extremely excited. Seeing this, Lu Bu laughed loudly and said, “From now on, you can call me Zhui Feng.”

At this time, Ding Yuan had already led people over. Looking at the Xiongnu corpses lying on the ground. Surprised, Lu Bu asked:

“Did you kill all these people?”

Seeing Ding Yuan asking, Lu Bu shook his head and pointed at the Hun soldier who was shot between the eyebrows by Lu Bu at first sight. He said: “Only this one was killed by me, the others were killed by their own people due to internal strife.”

Then Lu Bu explained everything that happened here to Ding Yuan. After hearing this, Ding Yuan disagreed and said: “What are you talking about, my son? You killed the Xiongnu Chanyu. This is a great achievement. There is nothing to refuse. Although you are young, you cannot cover up your Brilliance. Don’t be humble.”

Ding Yuan’s intention in saying this is very obvious. Killing Shanyu, the Marquis of Xubu Gudu, is a great achievement. For such a great contribution, Ding Yuan certainly hoped that his adopted son Lu Bu would come to claim it. It’s not about taking credit from others, as long as you recognize it, there will be many benefits. Could such a good thing allow him to fly?

Besides, this battle was fought so beautifully, and Shanyu, the Marquis of Xubu Gudu, was killed. I believe the emperor must be very happy and want to reward you greatly. At that time, Ding Yuan will also be asked to talk about the process of killing Xubu Guduhou Shanyu.

At that time, Ding Yuan could not say that it was because the Huns had internal strife, and Xubu Gudu Hou Shan was killed by the Huns. And he, Ding Yuan, was just a blind cat that bumped into a dead mouse. He picked up a corpse and came here to claim the credit. If that were true, wouldn’t it be a disgrace to the Han Dynasty?

After hearing what Ding Yuan said, Lu Bu nodded indifferently. Lu Bu believed that Ding Yuan would not harm him. As for those matters in the officialdom, Lu Bu doesn’t want to close them down yet, since Ding Yuan will take care of them anyway.

After seeing Ding Yuan finish his instructions, Lu Bu took Zhui Feng and ran away in a hurry. After Lu Bu got Zhuifeng, he was overjoyed. Now Lu Bu wanted to know how much better and what made this Zhui Feng better than the horses Lu Bu had ridden before.

Lu Bu galloped away on Chasing Feng. Ding Yuan looked at Lu Bu’s retreating figure. But he could only say with a wry smile: “It’s good to be young.”

Now that Lu Bu has no official position, he can naturally do what he wants. But Ding Yuan couldn’t survive. The war was over, but Ding Yuan’s busy days had just begun.

Looking at the battle report that had just been compiled, Ding Yuan frowned and became speechless for a moment.

In this battle with the Xiongnu, the entire Wuyuan County was mobilized. Originally, Wuyuan County had 10,000 soldiers and horses, so it seemed to be short of funds. In order to deal a fatal blow to the Huns, Ding Yuan, the bad guy, adopted Gao Shun’s strategy and recruited almost all the soldiers and strong villagers in Wuyuan County who could go to the battlefield. Although this is beneficial to the war. However, after this battle, more than 10,000 people died. Ding Yuan could not come up with the housing expenses for these more than 10,000 people.

But this is only a small part of the huge military expenditure. There are also injured soldiers who need comfort and treatment. As well as those villagers who enthusiastically joined the army when Wuyuan County was invaded by foreign tribes. Although they can now be demobilized and go home, they have left blood, and the government cannot let them go home empty-handed.

As for the Huns’ occupation of Wuyuan County, they also severely damaged the government and city walls, and Ding Yuan has not yet considered the cost of these repairs.

After thinking about it, Ding Yuan felt helpless and could only sigh. He said to the door: “Come here, please invite my son Lu Bu to come and discuss important matters.”

The guard at the door agreed and hurriedly ran outside.

Soon, Lu Bu came to Ding Yuan in military uniform. He bowed to Ding Yuan and said, “Father summoned the child to come here. I don’t know what he has to say.”

Seeing Lu Bu come in, Ding Yuan hurriedly smiled and said: “My son has worked hard these days. My father is going to let you be the cavalry captain of Wuyuan County and start training the cavalry of Wuyuan County. I will give you two thousand first.” quota. What do you think?”

Lu Bu was naturally happy when he heard that he had finally become an official, or some kind of cavalry captain. It’s just that the quota of two thousand cavalry is really short. What Lu Bu didn’t expect was that this benefit was not easy to obtain. Ding Yuan’s next words really surprised Lu Bu.

Ding Yuan saw that Lu Bu was happy and continued: “Now Wuyuan County’s finances are tight. Can you first use the money you promised last time?”

As soon as Ding Yuan mentioned this, Lu Bu naturally understood. In ancient times, the most expensive thing was war. And for Ding Yuan, the prefect who had just taken over, it was indeed not easy to support the expenses of such a war. But it’s not like there’s no solution. Thinking of this, Lu Bu rolled his eyes and said, “Father, you don’t have to worry too much about money. Although Wuyuan County is not rich, it is not that there is no solution.”

After hearing what Lu Bu said, Ding Yuan suddenly became interested. He hurriedly asked: “My son, if you have any good ideas, please tell me.”

Lu Bu chuckled and said, “Actually, father, this time the Huns came to Wuyuan County and looted a lot of money and grain. When the Huns withdrew, they were not able to take away this money and grain.”

When Lu Bu reminded him, Ding Yuan suddenly became happy.

“My son is right. We risked our lives to snatch this money and food back from the Huns. Now if we take it out and use it, it can be regarded as taking it from the people and using it for the people.”

After solving the financial problem, Ding Yuan was in a good mood. He said to Lu Bu: “I’m going to the capital in a few days to report the situation of the war here to the emperor. By the way, I will present a group of Huns prisoners and the heads of Shanyu, the Lord of Xubugu, to the emperor. Do you want to Come with me?”

Lu Bu lowered his head and thought for a moment, then shook his head and said, “My father is busy with the affairs of the court, so I won’t follow you. These days, I have been on the battlefield, and I have a lot of experience in martial arts. So I want to take advantage of this period, Sort it out properly. Besides, the child has just become a Cavalry Commander, so he also needs to be proficient in military affairs. I’m afraid he won’t be able to go to the capital with his father to see the world.”

As soon as Ding Yuan heard what Lu Bu said made sense, he said no more. He just nodded and said: “I didn’t expect that you would already be so calm in your heart at such a young age. I thought you would follow me to the capital for a visit. But that’s fine. A man should be so stable and unconcerned with the world. shaken by the things that happened. Only in this way can we make a difference.”

Lu Bu blushed a little after hearing Ding Yuan’s praise. In fact, Lu Bu really wanted to visit the capital, but there were still many things to deal with in Wuyuan County. For example, there were quite a few Huns captured this time. It was impossible for Ding Yuan to take all of these people to the capital to make the emperor happy. Then the remaining people will have to figure out how to deal with it.

Lu Bu originally planned to sell these people to Xu You. But suddenly I remembered what I learned in my previous life: Shanxi produces high-quality coal. If these prisoners were taken out to dig coal, it would be difficult for him, Lu Bu, to make a fortune.

Thinking of this, Lu Bu smiled flatteringly at Ding Yuan and said, “Father, our army has captured as many as seven or eight thousand Huns prisoners this time. I wonder what father plans to do with these people?”

When Ding Yuan saw Lu Bu mentioning the prisoners, he said with a serious face: “If they are not of my race, they will have different intentions. Keeping them is a waste of food. Find a time, you and Gao Shun will be responsible, and kill them all.”

Lu Bu was stunned when he heard that Ding Yuan wanted to kill all the prisoners. Lu Bu thought that he was already very cold-blooded in killing people on the battlefield. But he didn’t expect that Ding Yuan would kill seven or eight thousand people without even frowning.

Lu Bu hurriedly stopped him and said, “Father, doing this would harm the peace of the world. Besides, when father comes to Beijing this time, doesn’t he also need to bring something with him?”

After listening to Lu Bu’s words, Ding Yuan smiled and said: “How can a man be so benevolent as a woman? As for the sacrifice of prisoners, I don’t plan to use living people. When the time comes, I will find a car and load it with the heads of the Huns and go to Luoyang.” Let the ministers of the Manchu Dynasty see what a battlefield showdown is, and let them see the blood.”

Ding Yuan’s words shocked Lu Bu. In Lu Bu’s heart, Ding was originally just a Confucian general, but now he has a lot of iron-blooded flavor. This made Lu Bu a little angry.

Lu Bu sighed and said: “Father, in fact, if you kill them, it is better to let them do something for us big men. Now the entire Wuyuan County is seriously damaged and there are many places that need labor. In my opinion, it is better to demote these people to Slaves, make amends for the crimes they have committed. Wouldn’t that be better?”

Upon hearing Lu Bu’s words, Ding Yuan frowned. But it slowly unfolded after a while.

At this time, Ding Yuan laughed and said: “My son is thoughtful, but my father is a little stubborn on this matter. If these people can benefit our people in Wuyuan County, it will be fine at first sight. This matter Since you brought it up, you should be responsible for it.”
