That was once very well. the fewer they gave the impression of a part of an armed strength, the fewer most probably the little devils have been to provide them hassle. Peasants worked within the fields and paddies to each side of the line. They appeared up warily from their hard work as Nieh and his fans glided by. They have been wiser than the scaly devils; they knew infantrymen once they observed them. a few males waved to Nieh: they knew what sort of squaddies he led, too. That happy him.
