Chapter 104: Why is your Face so Red? (1)
The general guarding Qi Province was a known courageous warrior, Yelu Dilie.
Right now, he had his two arms around his beautiful concubines and was drinking in his room.
One of the women laid on him and extended her jade-like hands, softly caressing his chest and saying, “General, I heard that the Jin country has attacked countless of Da Liao’s cities and they’re already at the border. This concubine is feeling restless for this general.”
“For the last decade or so, Da Liao has been prosperous and peaceful, raising people to become good-for-nothing. They had forgotten about how we are the reason why there haven’t been any wars of violence.”
Yelu Dilie humphed and smashed the wine glass against the table.
“These two boys began to be proud and arrogant after leading a group of soldiers and winning useless warriors from our side, pft. The sea border is Da Liao’s first border and it is incredibly dangerous. It’s between perched high cliffs and deep mountain passes; even if the Jin soldiers knew how to fly, it would be extremely difficult for them to cross. We are absolutely safe here, so there is no need for you to worry.”
The beautiful woman raised her wine glass and responded, “It seems like this concubine has been thinking too much. With general’s impressive martial arts skills, why would we need to be afraid of Jin country and its soldiers.”
Yelu Dilie said, “I have already volunteered myself for military service and I’m just waiting for the Emperor to make his decree. The moment he does so, I will lead the army and aid my brother-in-law, capturing that Prince Yan and Champion Marquis alive. Then, I’ll have them kneel in front of you and amuse you, sound good?”
The other concubine said, “This concubine heard that Prince Yan, Cheng Shizhao, and Champion Marquis, Yu Xingzhi, were two handsome men from affluent families. In Jin country, they were known was the Two Jades, even prettier than women.”
Yelu Dilie laughed out loud and said, “Once I catch them alive, I’ll break their veins and have them serve me just you like you guys. Hahah, we can even drink and play together. That sounds quite interesting too.”
One could only hear roaring laughter in the room.
They suddenly heard bangs to the door.
Yelu Dilie said unhappily, “Who dares to disturb this general? Get the hell in.”
It was the commander-in-chief of the Han Decai and he hurried in with disheveled clothes and looked battered.
He hugged Yelu Dilie’s legs and cried, saying, “Brother-in-law, save me. Jin army has breached the city and we lost the sea border!”
Yelu Dilie was shocked and said, “How could they easily breach this dangerous border?”
Han Decai reached over and trembled as he gestured with his hands, crying too. “For the past few days, Cheng Shizhao has been continuously attacking the city but to no avail. Therefore, we stationed the troop in the city and remained cautious in our daily lives, not daring to slack off at all. We have been waiting for brother-in-law’s assistance but who knew that two days ago, a Jin army, about tens of thousands of soldiers suddenly entered the city from the north valley. Then, they attacked the sea border from two sides, along with Cheng Shizhao’s help.”
Yelu Dilie said, “Nonsense. Even birds can’t easily fly over the north valley, so how could the Jin army make it through safely?”
Han Decai cried and said, “I don’t know! Maybe the Jin army knows how to cast magic spells. Otherwise, how could they climb over the cliff? I witnessed with my own eyes that Champion Marquis, Yu Xingzhi, personally led the troops and waved their flags, charging down from the peak of the cliff and barging into the city. At the same time, Cheng Shizhao was outside doing his part. Our army really couldn’t resist against them anymore and the city was immediately breached. It was a helpless situation, so we had to abandon the city and flee, running over to brother-in-law’s place to ask for help.”
Yelu Dilie kicked him and scolded, “Useless scaredy-cats. What use does this general have of you?”
He then heard a military officer reporting outside, “Report to the general, Jin army is 50 meters outside of the city.”
Han Decai trembled and said, “We rushed here overnight, disguising ourselves by wearing casual clothes and only managing to arrive just now. Yet, their army has already arrived. It must be…must be the work of ghosts and Devil.”
Yelu Dilie was extremely infuriated and took out his sword, killing Han Decai right then.
He angrily hollered, “Grab my armor!”
