Chapter 189: Breaking through the Encirclement (2)
But just then, there was a crisp sound! The arrow missed by a finger and was fiercely inserted deep into the snow!
Gong Jue came fast upon a galloping horse. He glared at the archer murderously, then extended his hand. Gong Yi Mo tacitly accepted it and went up on the horse.
“Are you alright?”
Gong Jue asked. It took him some time to tame this horse. But he nearly– Nearly lost Gong Yi Mo!
Gong Yi Mo sighed in relief and wrapped her arms around his waist. “I’m fine…”
Gong Jue still wasn’t at ease. “Some men have the ability to see at night; that archer’s skill is superb! Sister, you sit in front of me!”
Noticing his worry, Gong Yi Mo smiled. “Relax!” She then took out a wooden shield from her space!
“I came to save you, and of course I came prepared!”
Gong Jue still wasn’t assured, but since the people behind were in tight pursuit, he had no time to reply. He could only take hold of the reigns and urge the horse to run as quickly as possible!
The men chased after them, getting closer and closer. Seeing the escaping pair, the leader sneered and cursed, “What a fool!”
He placed his thumb and forefinger between his lips and made a loud whistle!
They all say that old horses were difficult to tame. Since all of these breeds were raised by him, how can they possibly listen to outsiders?
Upon hearing the whistle, Gong Jue’s horse neighed loudly in response! It raised its front hooves high, but unexpectedly, it didn’t turn back!
Lifted up by the horse, Gong Jue quickly tightened his grip around the reigns!
The leader had to take this opportunity! Once again, he raised his bow and the arrow was loosed in one swooping motion! It flew straight at the pair.
Gong Jue had no time to deal with it. His backhand quickly drew out a knife and stabbed it ruthlessly at the horse.
The horse came down with a scream and once again ran like hell!
Meanwhile, the arrow inserted itself into the shield, its impact so strong, almost pushing Gong Yi Mo off the saddle!
“Sister Gong, are you alright?!” Gong Jue anxiously asked.
Gong Yi Mo shouted back, “He’s so strong! It’s not good to entangle with him! You go faster!
Gong Jue quickly rushed ahead with his horse, which ran even more desperately this time. Gradually, it began to open up a gap between them and their pursuers!
The general’s face was blue from anger, and soon, he sent out a signal to his men who guarded the border!
Unexpectedly, another team arrived at this time. When Gong Jue neared the border, he noticed from the distance that the newly arrived team attacked Lou Ye’s men!
The emperor sent this elite team! They’re finally here!
Gong Jue took advantage of this opportunity to snatch a spear and break through Lou Ye’s border guards! Gong Yi Mo also pulled out a sword from her sleeve, ready to paint the snow with stains of blood!
The two of them were very tacit in their cooperation. Gong Jue led the attack onwards while Gong Yi Mo sneak attacked from behind. Their movements were as swift as a flying horse, like a hot knife cutting through butter.
Those elite soldiers in the distance seemed to be retreating slightly. Weapons collided in the night sky, creating sparks!
Gong Jue’s momentum was as terrible as a God of Death! The young prince quickly broke out of the enemy’s encirclement and the pair finally reached the border! At this time, the pursuing troops behind him arrived too late. They could see the old general who guarded Xi Zhou for these past ten years. The enemy’s leader stood dead on his tracks.
Gong Jue spotted the armored old man at a glance and shouted to him!
Seeing that his grandson was still alive. Zhen Xi Wang felt his nose turn sour and he almost shed tears, but now wasn’t the time to be sentimental. He ordered his men to fight off the pursuers before looking straight at the young general across the battlefield.
For Zhen Xi Wang to achieve this high position, he had a body of martial arts that could only be rivaled by a few. He also heard that the young man opposite him on the battlefield was Lou Ye’s youngest general who could pull an arrow by one hand and not miss by a hair!
They looked at each other from opposites before joining the battlefield together!
Zhen Xi Wang only had one goal: to stop them!
