Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 321: Big army training
After leaving the mountain, Ye Chuan led everyone back directly to Cloud Mist Sect, then summoned everybody to discuss the next response.
Very soon, Zhu Sijia, fatty Zhao Dazhi and others rushed over, hearing this news, and now the big Cloud Mist Hall was crowded to bursting point with people.
“Your Excellency, there is nothing to discuss, we should directly kill. No matter how many of them came, kill all, let’s annihilate those 200,000 soldiers, kakaka!”
Old Demon of Mount Yin Rhodes laughed heartily, looking happy and healthy.
In this operation of scouting Da Qin army at night, his gain was the largest. Ye Chuan was heavily injured and was almost trapped in the campsite without any chance to escape. But, in the war of the mountain, he hunted at least one thousand people. With such vigorous essence blood and vital yang, his cultivation made progress, reducing the distance to breakthrough to Half Sage realm more and more. Once he made the breakthrough, perhaps, he would become the first Half-Sage vine demon of Wilderness World and his innate skill would cover vaster area, moreover, even returning to ancient omnibus domain Five Fingered Buddhist Cave, he would no longer be a small demon.
“In the battle tonight, Da Qin Dynasty was not alert, nothing more. But, now that they are alert, how can it be so easy to deal with them?”
Zhu Sijia shook her head and disagreed with the suggestion of Old Demon of Mount Yin. Then, she frowned and said with deep worry, “Big Senior Apprentice Brother, the army of Da Qin Dynasty was able to dominate the cultivating sects of Central Plains, it is not that easy to deal with them. They had yet to show their power. But waiting for them to come, with the strength of our Cloud Mist Sect, it is not an easy matter to contend with their 200,000 soldiers.”
“It’s reasonable, Second Elder, what do you think?” Ye Chuan asked looking towards Second Elder Nangong Ren sitting in a wheelchair.
Since he lost his legs during the internal strife of the sect, he had handed over all the power to Ye Chuan. After that, Second Elder Nangong Ren paid no attention to worldly affairs, just took care of the medicinal plants he planted wholeheartedly. But this time, confronted with the important matter of Da Qin Dynasty’s attack, he was invited.
“Ye Chuan, you decide these matters yourself. I have grown old. I heard something happened at the bottom of Evil Dragon Abyss and you went down to check. Did you find the remains of Nan Tiandu?”
Nangong Ren asked. Compared to before, his voice was much older. His face was wan and sallow and he looked lonely. Since the time Nan Tiandu who was tantamount to his son committed suicide by jumping down Evil Dragon Abyss, he was downhearted. His only wish was to retrieve the remains of Nan Tiandu from the bottom of Evil Dragon Abyss and give him a proper burial. Merely, blood mist filled everywhere and evil spirits run amuck at the bottom of Evil Dragon Abyss throughout the year, moreover, now he himself was having difficulty getting about, and it wasn’t good to ask Ye Chuan to help him by taking this risk.
“This……, I haven’t found it yet. I will go to look again some other day. Perhaps, junior apprentice-brother Tiandu is not dead but still alive.” Ye Chuan hesitated and decided to not tell the true state of affairs at the bottom of Evil Dragon Abyss.
The human body of Nan Tiandu had already ceased to exist, and now, his spirit was in the process of merging with the soul of the evil dragon Meng Ao. In the end, what would he transform to? Can he survive or not? No one had any way to tell.
In this world, the greatest tragedy was to give a hope when the other party had abandoned himself to despair, then again tear that hope to shreds. No one could endure this kind of torment. In order to prevent doing so, Ye Chuan decided to not tell the true situation. He just vaguely gave a thought to Second Elder Nangong Ren.
“Still alive? How can that be?”
Second Elder Nangong Ren shook his head and turned his wheelchair to leave, leaving behind some words, “Ye Chuan, I have grown old. You have to make decisions by yourself whatever the situation you encountered. Furthermore, Evil Dragon Abyss is very dangerous. Don’t go down before you are sufficiently strong. When you breakthrough to Half-Sage realm one day, you can easily go down Evil Dragon Abyss, at that time, help me retrieve the remains of Nan Tiandu. If I couldn’t see that day, then tell me when you visit my grave.”
Second Elder Nangong Ren who once used to laugh merrily or curse angrily and wasn’t tolerant (Ren) like his name had completely changed into another person. When he turned around to leave Cloud Mist Hall, a drop of tear trickled down his turbid eyes. He didn’t want anybody to see his current appearance.
“Farewell Second Elder.”
The disciples of Cloud Mist Sect simultaneously bowed as their gaze followed Second Elder sitting on wheelchair slowly getting further away.
In the internal strive caused by Third Elder Bai Yanhu, Ye Chuan did his utmost to stem a raging tide, so logically, he won the deep respect of everybody and was able to control the sect. In addition, three other people had also obtained the deep respect of the disciples. One was Nan Tiandu who had jumped down Evil Dragon Abyss to commit suicide, the second was Great Elder Zhu Guohong’s beloved granddaughter Zhu Sijia and the last one was Second Elder Nangong Ren. In former days, the latter was carefree and only cared about his medicinal herbs. He didn’t bother to ask or to listen to the matters of the sect. As a result, he was nicknamed Medicine Crazy. He didn’t have any appearance of the sect elder. But at the critical moment, he stood up without hesitation, causing people to look at him with new eyes.
“Your Excellency, since Second Elder says to follow your instruction, we will listen to you. What should we do next?”
Old Demon of Mount Yin Rhodes couldn’t wait and said, “How about Jiajia and others stay behind in the sect to take care of the matters and I lead a group of people to go carry out a sneak attack on the army of Da Qin Dynasty and burn down their campsite?”
Zhu Sijia was deeply worried, but Old Demon of Mount Yin disapproved. He who desired to see the world plunged into chaos, he wanted Da Qin army to enter mountain and attack. For him, massacring was the best cultivation method. If Da Qin army didn’t enter the mountain, then how can he hunt and kill wantonly?
“Good, Rhodes, you go by yourself and burn down the campsite of Da Qin Dynasty. Also, burn that Da Qin Crown Prince Li Guang Han to coke for me. Unless he is burned to coke, you don’t need to return. For you, 200,000 soldiers are nothing, even 1 million soldiers are not enough to kill for you.” Ye Chuan said and occupying the commanding position, he looked at somewhat arrogant and conceited Old Demon of Mount Yin.
“Your Excellency is joking.” Old Demon of Mount Yin didn’t dare to be arrogant as he smiled in embarrassment.
“It is not that we shouldn’t burn down the campsite of Da Qin army, rather it is not the time. Now, Da Qin army has definitely enforced tight security. It is difficult to approach their campsite. Moreover, attacking this time wouldn’t have big significance. Wait until they enter the mountain and reach halfway to our Cloud Mist Sect to attack again. At that time, we will let Li Guang Han feel true pain! Now, there is no harm to play with them and take the advantage of this occasion to train our troops. Our troops will be divided into two groups. Jiajia will lead the disciples of our sect and Rhodes will lead yao beasts. Take turns to go into battle, take advantage of this occasion to train troops!”
Ye Chuan coldly smiled and issued a command.
The arrival of Da Qin army was a dangerous challenge that brought a heavy pressure. But at the same time, it was also an opportunity. Only those troops who had experienced the baptism of flames of war and death were true elites. The disciples of Cloud Mist Sect needed to experience this and Evil Eyed Cow Demons, pangolins, golden eagles and other yao beasts were also the same!
Ye Chuan who once concealed the heaven knew how to deal with formidable enemies and he also knew how to train true elites.
After giving that fellow Li Guang Han a pleasant surprise and clearly understanding the situation of Da Qin army, the next step was very long protracted war. Both sides were not only fighting with strength but also resourcefulness and willpower. Whoever was eager for instant success and quick profits, they would become the loser.
