Chapter 105: Why is your Face so Red? (2)
By the north wall of Qi Province residence, the guards of the city could gradually see the smoke coming from the ground.
The dusty sand filled the air and darkness took over.
Like a ruthless predator, Yelu Dilie hurriedly wore his armor and galloped his horse towards the city wall.
He watched as the enemy took over the road and menacingly made their way over.
They were waving the flags and the warhorses were neighing, with a ‘Yu’ on the flag of one of the horses.
Yelu Dilie knew that the Champion Marquis personally led the troops over to combat him, feeling secretly shocked.
From his impression, the Jin country’s army had mostly food soldiers, which was why they moved slowly. In addition, they were only adept at guarding cities and not attacking.
On the other hand, Qidan’s cavalry moved quickly and attacked fiercely. In the battles from the past decade with Jin country, Liao army almost never lost.
The armored horses of Da Liao galloped across the Central Plain unrestricted and almost none could match its strengths. In the Liao army’s eyes, Jin army was just groups of sheep that they could murder easily and to their pleasure.
Yelu Dilie sighed in his heart.
Not so long ago, Jin country also had a powerful and rapid army while Qidan had lost some of its acute spirit from all these years of peace.
He collected his feelings and equipped himself, getting into formation and showing off the army’s imposing manner. They arrived at the bottom of the city and prepared for their enemies, wanting to want for their enemy’s presence and dampen their acute spirit.
The two armies met face to face with each other, standing in place and preparing to combat.
Yelu Dilie watched as one of the people from the opposing side clasped a flag in his hand.
He rode a handsome saddle horse and he appeared to be extraordinary and elegant.
That person was Jin country’s one of the newest generals, Champion Marquis, Yu Xingzhi.
Therefore, Yelu Dilie whipped his horse, moving forward and calling out Yu Xingzhi’s name.
He watched as Yu Xingzhi took out a long pike and galloped towards himself.
Without another word, the war had begun.
In the moments of breathing, the bright tip of the pike aimed towards Yelu Dilie without warning.
Yelu Dilie raised his arms and caught the pike steadily, stopping its attack.
He originally wanted to swing the pike over Yu Xingzhi’s head but he didn’t expect it to be as heavy as a mountain.
While attempting to block the attack, Yelu Dilie felt a sharp pain on the web between his thumb and forefinger. At that moment, his skin tore apart and fresh blood dripped down.
That didn’t stop Yu Xingzhi from continuing to gesture about the pike.
Yelu Dilie widened his eyes and watched as the tip of the pike reached his chest and pierced his body, stabbing his heart.
Before he died, he thought in shock: since when was there a figure like him in Jin country?
Zhou Xiaoxiao took the lead and charged into the enemy ranks.
Jin army felt their spirits rising and they all surged into the opposing side, killing the enemies and roaring.
Finally, the war was over and the opposing side submitted.
Yu Xingzhi personally led the troops to chase about a kilometer in and captured coutless hostages.
In the 18th year of Jin Dynasty, Champion Marquis, Yu Xingzhi, breached the sea border and the guards fled the city.
Yu Xingzhi chased after them and raided Qi Province.
He killed the general guarding Qi Province, Yelu Dilie, and breached the city in one day.
Prince Yan, Cheng Shizhao led the troops to attack the other counties.
The two troops met up in Qi Province and the entire army was ready.
When the Emperor heard this, he was so ecstatic that he rewarded the generals and soldiers with treasures.
In Qi Province city, Yu Xingzhi sat in front of a red sandalwood carved flower on the desk in the original guarding general, Yelu Dilie’s study. He was flipping through the books on the art of war and documents he had left when he suddenly saw 《Seven Books of Martial Arts》under the documents.
Yu Xingzhi said: I didn’t think Qidan barbarians would read through the Central Plains’ military strategies and tactics.
He placed it on top of the desk and prepared to read it when he saw that there was another book inside the cover.
