His highness's Allure - Chap 199
The barbarian was a little annoyed, but then said with a smile on his face, “Master Pei, don’t rush to refuse, don’t you need to discuss it with your emperor? What if he is willing to trade this capital for his own safety? Our leader said, as long as you are willing to surrender and let go of the capital, then my barbarians can promise not to kill your royal family members, how about that?”
After hearing this, Liu Yi asked, “Then, what about the rest of the city?”
The barbarian said nonchalantly, “Those ants-like people, just kill them.”
The sword in Liu Yi’s hand immediately touched the neck of the barbarian, “We Chinese people are only loyal to our own country and our own emperor, and we will never bow down to others!”
Liu Yi angrily said, “I’ll kill you first, and let your leaders attack if you have the ability. We would rather die standing than live on our knees!”
The sword body approached forward inch by inch, and it had already cut through the neck of the barbarian, and blood was flowing out.
“Okay, I have already thought that you stubborn people will not be easily persuaded. Speaking of integrity, you people from the Celestial Dynasty are indeed worthy of admiration, especially your general, tsk tsk tsk, he is really a hero who would rather not bend! ”
Pei Zheng’s eyes suddenly darkened, he stretched out his hand and pushed Liu Yi’s sword away, stepped forward and grabbed the front of the barbarian’s shirt, and said coldly, “What did you say?”
The barbarian touched his still bleeding neck, “I said, you people from the Celestial Dynasty have integrity.”
“Have you met Zhao Litang?”
The barbarian pretended to think about it deliberately, and then suddenly realized, “Oh, so that General Zhao’s name is Zhao Litang, no wonder it sounds so familiar.”
The murderous aura in Pei Zheng’s eyes had begun to gather gradually. He grabbed the barbarian and pushed most of his body out of the city wall.
“Tell me everything you know, or else”
Pei Zheng pressed him outside the dark and deep city wall again, and his entire upper body was already suspended in the air.
The barbarian looked very frightened, but he still clenched his teeth and refused to say anything.
Pei Zheng really pushed him out mercilessly, and the barbarian man’s face instantly turned pale with fright, and he let out a long wailing, but did not fall.
His neckline was grabbed by a hand, and his entire body was hung on the towering city wall, his legs fluttering wildly, like a fish hanging in the wind.
“Let’s talk.” Pei Zheng’s voice was low and without a trace of warmth, the hand that grabbed the person showed faint blue veins, but his face was expressionless.
“I said, I said” The will of the barbarian has been broken, he glanced down, the bottomless darkness was like a huge
Eat people’s mouths and wait for him to fall down to feed their stomachs.
After the barbarian finished speaking, he looked at Pei Zheng, waiting for him to pull him up.
Pei Zheng just gave him a cold look, and then let go.
Accompanied by the shrill screams, a black shadow quickly fell from the city wall without a sound.
Liu Yi looked worried, “Sir, what he said just now about General Zhao is not true, right? General Zhao, he, he, is not that kind of person.”
Pei Zheng’s tone couldn’t tell his emotions, “How can an outsider come to a conclusion with just a few words that he doesn’t even understand himself.”
At this time, the barbarian vanguard army, which was still galloping towards the imperial capital, suddenly stopped.
Pei Zheng stared at the fire, his eyes cold.
In fact, the soldiers of the Celestial Dynasty had already been ambushed outside the imperial capital. They all hid in the dark, waiting for the barbarian army to arrive outside the city and kill them by surprise.
But who knew that the barbarians didn’t break into the ambush, as expected.
With a sound of “咻”, the barbarians fired a flying arrow, which flew straight towards the gate of the imperial capital with a circle of fire.
The city gate is made of iron, and it is not afraid of fire, but it illuminates the soldiers in ambush at the city gate.
The barbarian army immediately heard cheers and cheers, as if to celebrate that there was no ambush.
Seeing that the ambush failed, the soldiers of the Celestial Dynasty rushed out and formally confronted the barbarian vanguard.
The barbarians all rode high-headed horses, armed with torches and sharp weapons, wearing ancient robes with colorful patterns, half of their arms exposed, and they rushed over with cheers and shouts.
For a while, a fierce fight broke out outside the city gate. Flesh and blood flew all over the place. The fire was on and off. In the blink of an eye, you could see that most of the soldiers of the Celestial Dynasty had fallen, while the cavalry of the barbarians had fallen. Only a small loss.
Liu Yi, who was standing on the city wall watching the battle, couldn’t stand it any longer, and with his sword in hand, he wanted to lead someone to rush out.
Pei Zheng stopped him and said, “Open the city gate.”
Liu Yi was surprised, “Sir, when you open the city gate now, don’t you just let the barbarian army attack directly, then what are we fighting!”
“There are only a few thousand people in this vanguard. Although there are not many, they are all elite cavalry.” Pei Zheng stared at the two sides fighting under the city wall in chaos, “If the cavalry loses their mounts, it is equivalent to losing half of their combat effectiveness. When they enter the city, kill their mounts first.”
Liu Yi was stunned and ordered to leave.
The soldiers in the city were busy in an orderly manner under the command of Liu Yi, and after a while, they sent a signal to the soldiers outside the city.
Then the heavy city gate suddenly opened, and the remaining Celestial soldiers outside the city turned around and rushed back into the city with great discernment, and then disappeared immediately.
The iron hoofs of the barbarians stood still outside the city gate. They looked at each other, wondering why the Celestials opened the city gate by themselves, did they retreat when they couldn’t beat it?
Looking inside the city gate, it was quiet and empty, and there was no sound at all. The whole city seemed to be an empty city.
A daring barbarian cavalry first rode a horse and walked in carefully, and went all the way to the streets of the Imperial City without seeing a single figure.
Then the other barbarian cavalry came in as well.
Unexpectedly, as soon as I entered the city gate, I heard the sound of “scorpion” under my feet. Pieces of bright blades swept past the horse’s leg, cutting off most of the horse’s leg directly. The barbarian soldiers on the horse directly It fell down immediately, and then a large number of soldiers from the Celestial Dynasty rushed out from nowhere, directly beheading the fallen barbarian soldiers.
The barbarian soldiers in the front had all been killed, and the barbarian soldiers who came in at the back did not know what happened, and were then killed by the same method.
Blood flowed like a river at the gate of the entire city, the bodies of humans and horses were piled up in a mess, and a thick **** smell began to spread throughout the city.
After the last barbarian soldier was also beheaded, all the corpses were thrown out of the city, and then the towering city gate was tightly closed again.
Outside the city gate, many soldiers were ambushed again, but after learning the lesson of the last time, the ambush was more concealed.
The soldiers who stayed in the city cheered happily. They won the first battle tonight. Maybe, maybe there will be a miraculous turnaround tonight!
Liu Yi happily went to report the matter to Pei Zheng, but Pei Zheng showed no happy expression at all, staring at the darkness in the distance without saying a word.
With thousands of cavalry, no one knows what a huge army will follow.
Now the distance of the Imperial City is too quiet, the quieter it is, the more uneasiness it hides.
The carriage had already left the Imperial City, but it still did not dare to stop for a moment, and continued to gallop towards the north.
The little man in the car was still in a deep slumber, and the dose of medicine was enough for him to sleep for a whole night. When it was dawn, he woke up and was far away from the imperial capital.
Li Yu has been watching carefully by the side, always observing the movements of His Highness, for fear that he will wake up early.
But His Highness will wake up sooner or later. How can I explain all this to His Highness at that time, to show that your lord has good intentions.
Suddenly, the carriage came to an emergency stop, a horse was parked on the road in front of it, and immediately there was a dark figure that could not be seen clearly in the dim moonlight.
The dark guard who was accompanying the carriage immediately jumped out of the carriage, blocked the front, and drew his sword to face the shadow in front of him.
The shadow didn’t seem to be afraid at all, and walked towards the carriage step by step.
When they got to the carriage, a figure jumped off the horse and almost sprained his foot. Only then did it become clear that it was carrying two people.
The figure limped over, lifted the curtain of the carriage and looked in.
Li Yu was taken aback and closed his eyes in front of Qi Changyi, “Who are you, you, you?”
“Little Yuzi, don’t be afraid, it’s me.”
Hearing the familiar voice, Li Yu suddenly opened his eyes and saw that the person in front of him was Jiang Yubai, who had not seen him for a long time, and his eyes turned red immediately.
“Doctor Jiang, why did you and Feng guard you come back? woo woo woo”
Cheng Feng also got off his horse and walked to the side of the carriage.
“What’s wrong, Your Highness?” Cheng Feng asked aloud, seeing that something was wrong.
“Your Highness was drugged by His Excellency and fell asleep.” Li Yudao said, “Your Highness wants me and His Highness to leave the city. It seems that there is going to be a war in the Imperial City tonight. Your Lord will send us all to the Northern Territory Kingdom, and he will be left alone. in town”
“What?” Jiang Yubai’s eyes widened, “We have only been gone for a long time, is the imperial capital also being captured?”
He looked back at Chengfeng, and then made a decision, “You go, I want to go back.”
As he said that, he turned around and climbed onto the horse’s back.
“No.” Cheng Feng reached out and hugged Jiang Yubai by the waist, stuffed it into the carriage, and then jumped onto the horse himself.
Jiang Yubai showed his head from the carriage and said excitedly, “I knew it, I knew it! Let’s go, let’s go back together!”
Who knew that Chengfeng just turned around, took a deep look at the road leading to the Imperial City, and then said in a deep voice, “Let’s go to the Northern Territory Kingdom.”
Jiang Yubai was very shocked, and he loudly asked Chengfeng’s back, “Hey! It’s your master who stays there! Do you have the heart to let him face the war and death alone? Anyway, go back and take him away with you. Okay! Hey! It’s definitely too late for us to go back now! If it’s too late, the whole city might be gone!”
Cheng Feng tightened the horse rope, stood still in the moonlight, and looked back at Jiang Yubai.
Jiang Yubai immediately closed his mouth. Although he couldn’t see clearly, he knew that Cheng Feng’s eyes were slightly red.
“You don’t know the master. He made this decision, but he has already thought about the consequences. He will not leave with us. Even if we go back, nothing will change.”
“So, let’s listen to the master and leave.”
