Chapter 188: Breaking through the Encirclement (1)
When Gong Yi Mo heard the sound of pursuers from the distance, she snapped out of her drowsiness and scolded herself for having internal injuries. If she didn’t have such wounds, she wouldn’t be so passive at this time.
She stared up at the dark sky and said bitterly, “It’s already so late? Why didn’t you wake me up? Ugh, it’s my own mistake for drinking!”
She patted Gong Jue’s head asking him to let her down. Gong Jue examined her body and knew that she was still injured. He refused her request, but Gong Yi Mo had more authority after all. After giving her a measuring gaze, he dared not refuse.
As she gazed at the endless snowy night behind her, Gong Yi Mo said, “Did you say they came on horseback?”
Gong Jue nodded.
Gong Yi Mo looked down at the snow on her feet and sighed. Heaven was quite something; in just one day, the snow was so thick!
“They can’t have their horses run in this weather. If only we can grab one from them!”
Gong Jue also pondered this issue. Right now, it would be difficult to erase their footprints at this point, plus he was worried for his sister’s health.
“I have an idea!”
Gong Yi Mo smiled slyly and took out a few things from her space.
It was a small firecracker that she made that lacked lethality, but it will be helpful for them to steal a horse.
So after the two of them deliberated, they decided to split one of the soldiers from the group. Gong Yi Mo hid behind a big rock. It wasn’t long before the sound of horseshoes came.
One of the pursuers noticed something off about the footprints and was just about to report it back, when suddenly, Gong Yi Mo threw a firecracker at his horse! The fire and explosion caused the horse to go mad! It neighed and ran straight into the night!
“There’s an ambush!”
The man couldn’t help but shout as his startled horse carried him away. The sudden movement caused the rest of the team to perk up all at once.
Gong Yi Mo didn’t want to entangle with them. After her success, she hurriedly ran towards the direction of the fleeing horse!
To her surprise, the fleeing horse was actually a rare breed, otherwise, how could it run so quickly? Gong Yi Mo felt that her qing gong wasn’t fast enough, and that her pursuers were closing in.
For now, Gong Yi Mo hoped that everything was going well on Gong Jue’s side!
She ran desperately, only the hear the something pierce through the wind behind her. Gong Yi Mo subconsciously dodged and an arrow buried itself into the snow. Her heart trembled; the enemy must be very close! She could almost see their leader’s eagle-like eyes, staring at her coldly!
This man, is he Lou Ye’s famous God of Death?
Gong Yi Mo gritted her teeth and threw the last firecracker at them! Then she turned away and ran.
This time they were prepared for her attack, knowing that her firecracker wasn’t lethal. They quickly took control of their horses and continued their chase.
“General! What kind of evil weapon did she use just now? I can’t believe she can start a fire on this bare ground!”
Another man said, “I heard that someone broke through the siege yesterday, using some unknown weapons to attract attention. Is this Great Yu’s secret weapon?
The leader smiled coldly!
“If we want to find out, go catch that man and torture him!”
After saying so, he took out a second arrow, focused his eyes, then once again aimed straight at Gong Yi Mo!
It’s very difficult to aim on horseback, but this man had such a natural skill that he can spot his target though the night and shoot another arrow!
The arrow loosed in the dark was like a shining silver of cold light. Its momentum was fierce as it flew directly towards Gong Yi Mo’s chest!
