Chapter 108: Right now, the Person is Locked in the Cylindrical Bamboo and Transported towards Henan River (2)
Brother Xiu wanted to take over Qi Province and Xingzhi led the 3,000 light cavalry to stop him.
The two armies met and faced off against each other’s adversary.
A general asked Xingzhi why they were only watching but not going to battle.
Xingzhi said, “Although we have an elite army, our backup hasn’t arrived yet. We are not completely certain that we may win. Therefore, it is better to attack at night.”
A spy had leaked this information to Brother Xiu.
At night, Yu Xingzhi led the army to attack the Liao army’s camp.
They rushed into the camp to see no one there.
Yu Xingzhi hollered, “We got tricked! Quickly retreat!”
Yet, they watched as torches were ignited and they were surrounded by Liao army.
Yeluxiu stood aloft and said, “Here, I was wondering what a courageous and intelligent general you are, but you turn out to have no strategies or plans. Champion Marquis, this is the place where you’ll die!”
Yu Xingzhi and Zhou Xiaoxiao exchanged gazes and the two joined hands and murdered a way out, escaping towards the southwest direction.
How could Yeluxiu let him escape? He led his troops and chased after them.
Right now, Cheng Shizhao led his army and lay in wait on the side of a canyon.
The canyon was called the Luoyue Slope which was long and narrow, precipitous and dangerous on both sides. It was a natural good place for ambush and sneak attack.
Cheng Shizhao anxiously looked at the entrance of the canyon.
After a while, he finally saw two figures, one riding a white horse and the other wearing a black horse.
It was Yu Xingzhi and Zhou Xiaoxiao.
The two were covered in blood and only hundreds of light calvaries were following behind them.
The Liao country’s army was tightly following them and they slowly caught up.
Cheng Shizhao fisted his hands tightly and wanted to rush down the hill to come to the rescue.
However, as the leader of the army, reason took over and he knew this wasn’t the best time.
He could only watch as his closest brother who was covered in blood anxiously rode past him in front of his eyes.
Until half the Liao army went in, he then firmly waved the flag in his hand.
At that moment, roars sounded in the canyon and two groups of troops sped down rapidly, dividing the Liao army into sections. They then murdered them in groups.
The Liao army was in chaos and there were countless Qidan warriors who were dead and injured, utterly defeated and then they escaped.
When Yeluxiu saw that he couldn’t turn the situation around anymore, he raised his head and looked at the sky, sadly shouting, “Heaven wants to end Da Liao!”
He casted away the troops and after fleeing for hundreds of meters, he counted his guards and there were only 118 light cavalry left.
Yet, Cheng Shizhao chased down from the mountain and went to search for Yu Xingzhi and his troops first, instead of personally pursuing after Yeluxiu.
It was like the Asura fire grounds and there were piles of dead bodies.
He finally saw the black and white figure standing within the smoke and flags.
Cheng Shizhao sprinted over and hugged Yu Xingzhi, observing him up and down. Although he was covered in blood, there were only light injuries on him.
Cheng Shizhao laughed out loud and said, “Good! Nice one, brother! Good job!”
He even clapped Zhou Xiaoxiao on the back and said, “I’m glad you came with us. Otherwise, who knows if we would still have a whole cousin with us! Haha!”
Zhou Xiaoxiao didn’t have the energy to answer him.
Yu Xingzhi held her hands and the two gradually walked out of the battlefield, against the setting sun.
Cheng Shizhao called Zhou Xiaoxiao and the lattered turned around.
Cheng Shizhao touched his nose and said, “Sorry, I’m apologizing to you.”
“What is your highness saying?” Zhou Xiaoxiao didn’t understand.
“About the past, you said that I need to apologize to you.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao slightly smiled and turned back around.
Against the setting sun, the rear view of her face flickered and appeared to be bright.
Cheng Shizhao dugged a deep pit in his heart and tossed the unknown emotions in there. Then, he buried it deeply.
The news spread and the army was in high spirits. The people were dancing and enjoying themselves. On their way, there were numerous people comforting the army with meat while they walked over.
The army then made their way to Tongzhou.
When the Emperor of Liao country heard this, he led the imperial wives and concubines as well as his officials and made their way to Shangdu.
