Chapter 137: Misfortune (2)
He could only use military status!
In order to place everyone’s life and death… firmly in the palm of his hand.
“But, how will we uncover the truth?”
Bai Sheng was still objecting, unwilling for Gong Jue to take risks.
Gong Jue pulled out the yellow grass at his feet and lightly said, “Since they can come over through the tunnel to scout, why can’t we do the same?”
His thoughts were too insane, so much so that Bai Sheng couldn’t refute for a long while.
Use the enemy’s tunnel that they use to scout the enemy to scout them? Truly, only a capable person such as Gong Jue would have such a wild thought.
Night fell and a group of people in black appeared at Lou Ye’s border.
The leader was obviously a teenager. His face was completely covered except for a pair of eyes. It was a pair of extremely cold eyes.
They had just used the passage to secretly come over. After killing the guards at the exit, they found that they were already in Lou Ye’s territory. Lou Ye was indeed shady, digging such a long tunnel so deep into their territory!
The ones who followed Gong Jue here were all assassins.. Gong Jue had both money and men, training a few assassins was a cinch. It was just, at such a young age, he already planned so far ahead into the future as if he were a prophet.
Several people ran in the dark night, not knowing how far they’ve gone.
“Your Majesty, there is fire light ahead!”
Gong Jue squinted his eyes and looked ahead. It indeed looked like there was someone camping in front.
He quickly made a gesture and everyone scattered. If there were any abnormalities, they would hide and wait for Gong Jue’s signal. In this way, they quickly approached the fire.
Lou Ye’s people also spoke Chinese since they look down on the weak inland while envying their culture at the same time. The nobles also knew how to use eagles to communicate amongst themselves. This was the exclusive language of the nobles in order to prevent leaks.
This camp was not a normal one. It was very large and there were patrol teams everywhere. They seemed to be guarding something. Gong Jue stuck against a rock and looked inside. Those tall statured people were all wearing thin armor in such cold weather. Their eyes were wide open, as if guarding against something.
In addition to the patrol teams, women’s laughter sounded from the big tents in the middle. There was also a large bonfire at the entrance. Many people surrounded the fire eating meat and drinking in a particularly jovial manner.
Gong Jue’s heart shook slightly. Lou Ye indeed made some actions.
Otherwise, why would they camp here in the middle of nowhere?
He couldn’t help but recall a line his Royal Sister once said.
“When the army moves out, the provisions go first!”
“Meng Na, how much longer do we have to wait? Looking at the weather, it seems the first snowfall will arrive soon.”
It snowed early in the West County and once it snew, it would snow for several months.
The one called Meng Na was a burly and sturdy man! He sipped his wine while narrowing his eyes, “In a few days. When the main army arrives and it starts snowing, we will attack by surprise!”
This line just happened to be heard by Gong Jue who was sneaking closer. Provisions, they really were provisions!
His heart trembled slightly and he hid away like a ghost. If this was really the place they stocked their rations, then there would definitely be many guards. Sure enough, a shout of anger soon sounded from Lou Ye’s people. One of his men must’ve been discovered!
Gong Jue narrowed his eyes. This was not the time to gather more merits. He had to hide himself first and wait for an opportunity!
This was an opportunity sent from the heavens to his doorstep! He couldn’t resist the temptation!
