Name:Zhang Ping Age:14 year-old Occupation:Hauler Adress: Meihua Town, Nayong County, Guizhou Province Situation:Parents have been out to work from 2000 and never been heard of since. 2:45 p.m. Because they are too young, very few people would like to hire them. They have been waiting for more than 3 houres, but there's still no business for them. Yang Guo and his companions are suffering from hunger and cold. Finally, they decide to pool their 2-yuan wages made in the morning to have lunch in the "hauler station". You're late. The meal is still not ready. You came Bijie when you were 5, right? Yep.
