Chapter 141: One Against Ten Thousand (2)
Besides, this little girl, Gong Jue, wouldn’t be able to turn the sky no matter what she did!
Indeed, Gong Jue was young and had exquisite features. Coupled with his fake voice, he’s a girl whichever way you see it.
So the entertainer sold herself and finally reached the management, allowing them to try the method of distilling wine. Gong Jue dressed up in women’s clothes and pretended to be part of the troupe. Using the simplest tools, he improved the wine.
The method of distillation was simple. However, he added a few extra ingredients after distilling it and the wine became clearer and richer. When the manager tried it, it was like a fire scorching his throat. Waves of heat and silk through his mouth, making him feel addicted at first taste!
What was the point of this war? Wasn’t it exactly for the money? With this wine, how could they not make a fortune?
So they hurriedly told Gong Jue to prepare some more for them. It would be best if he went and distilled all of the wine! He wanted to present the wine at the evening dinner to the higher ups. After all, if they made a killing, they would have some soup to drink too.
Furthermore, you could make a lot of money from wine! Fighting a war during a cold winter, wine was a must for heating up. Of course there wouldn’t not be enough.
Gong Jue happily agreed, pretending that he didn’t see the manager and entertainer’s scheming eyes. They may had already agreed beforehand that after he finished improving the wine and are familiar with the process, they would send him to the guards!
It’s just a shame that wealth is blinding. In order to make a fortune, they watched him tightly. What kind of moves could he make?
Gong Jue indeed didn’t do anything; he obediently distilled a dozen or so barrels of wine. Seeing them move the wine to the storage room, Gong Jue smiled slightly. After two days of observation, every night, there would be a small fire next to the storage room. The heat spread out in waves. It not only raised the temperature to keep the food dry, but also prevented people from infiltrating using the darkness as a cover.
So everything was successfully set up this way.
Sure enough, two days after this wine was presented, the manager and entertainer understood the process fully, they told the guard the secret. The guard smiled coldly and waved his hand, he wanted to see this spy that pretended to be an entertainer and brought them wealth. Furthermore, they said that it was a girl?
There was always singing and dancing at the main tent, especially at night. The men there didn’t act as if they were there to fight a war, but rather, to celebrate their victory instead. Unfortunately, ever since tasting Gong Jue’s wine, the generals have became drunk and muddle-headed.
When Gong Jue entered the tent, the generals were overcome with drunkenness for the past ten days. Several guards were already in a drunken stupor. They didn’t put the little entertainer “girl” in their eyes at all.
The general extended his hand towards the newly arrived ‘girl’ and Gong Jue lifted his head and smiled sweetly. Her stunning face illuminated by the firelight blinded those few.
But very quickly, it turned into a pitiful backstabbing the moment he turned his back!
Gong Jue killed all three guards by himself and released a smoke signal. Eight men charged in from one direction, not knowing they would meet their demise. The drunken guards didn’t know how many people came, they only knew there was a murder and smoke signals were sent. They didn’t even know if there was an army lying in wait nearby!
The camp became crazed and the ones on horseback slowly approached. Gong Jue took advantage of the confusion to destroy the supplies, break the wine barrels, and set a fire!
The wine was very flammable and was instantly ignited, leaving the soldiers in stupor. The fire was out of control; even water couldn’t put it out!
So the supplies that were enough to support over 200,000 people were consumed by a fire that was set by only one person! Gong Jue, by himself, ruined the enemy country’s plan for a sneak attack! A camp of over 10,000 people was thrown into chaos by him! And the culprit was in the middle taking advantage of the chaos, calm and unruffled. Any person that was only slightly weak at heart would never be able to achieve such tranquility!
