Bai Qi lost control for a moment, and the small jug containing wine in his hand was directly crushed and exploded.
At this moment.
Both Huo Zhenxiao and Bai Qi had a buzzing sensation in their heads.
They had been guarding the northern frontier for years and knew all about the hundred tribes outside the domain.
The Huns! That was the former king of the Hundred Tribes, and even though it was now in decline and no longer magnificent, it was still definitely one of the strongest tribes among the Hundred Tribes outside the domain.
A monument, the eighth man in history!
This is a unique and supreme honour.
Thousands of years of history, just seven personal statues, enough to prove its value and glory.
But …… D*mn it, how could a man from the domain erect the eighth one?
“D*mn it …… Chen Dong is over there in the day?”
Huo Zhenxiao gaze flickered, gritted his teeth and said, “In order to find him, 100,000 of us starred down the Great Snowy Plain and found nothing, but he is good, he ran straight to Xiongnu and ascended to heaven in one step?”
At this moment, even Huo Zhenxiao’s state of mind could hardly remain calm.
This was simply too unbelievable, something that should have been simply impossible!
When he said this, Huo Zhenxiao’s words were still dense with doubt, while there were also a few strange tastes and melancholy.
On the phone, Chen Daolin looked a bit calmer than Huo Zhenxiao and Bai Qi.
He said slowly: “After the forces of the major powers retreated, my close forces, called the dark guards, did not retreat, but went directly around the Qilian Mountains and went to Xiongnu, originally they just thought not to give up the last chance, but to their surprise, they really found it in the Xiongnu royal city, and at this moment they seem to be going through the ceremony of erecting the statue of Dong’er’s monument! ”
Huo Zhenxiao hurriedly asked, “Did the secret guards say what exactly the reason was?”
Chen Daolin said in a deep voice, “I’m also waiting, but this phone call has an ulterior motive.”
At those words.
The shocked Huo Zhenxiao and Bai Qi’s faces suddenly sank, and in their blank minds, their thoughts quickly resumed turning.
A man from the domain, a leading guard of the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.
After disappearing, he appeared in Xiongnu, and was also erected in a monument of supreme glory by Xiongnu.
When the two are taken apart, the latter is indeed the supreme glory.
But when the two are linked together, even Huo Zhenxiao and Bai Qi could not help but feel a layer of white hair sweat on their backs.
Given their status and experience, they naturally understood instantly what Chen Daolin meant when he said he had ulterior motives.
If they were used by someone with an ulterior motive, perhaps it would be the end of the road for Chen Dong!
Huo Zhenxiao took a deep breath, the previous shock and surprise dissipating.
He said with a sober gaze, “Don’t worry, if Chen Dong is honest and upright, I, Huo Zhenxiao, will protect him, but if he really collaborates with the enemy and traitors the country, Zhenxiao can only shoot Chen Dong to set the record straight!”
“Thank you, Zhenxiao.”
The call hung up.
Huo Zhenxiao and Bai Qi looked at each other.
“Sovereign, what about this matter?”
Bai Qi’s gaze was sullen, his voice low and husky.
Huo Zhenxiao frowned and hesitated.
After a few seconds, he then slowly said, “Wait quietly for news from Chen Daoling’s side of the secret guards, if it is not Chen Dong’s fault, then Chen Dong will be safe and sound, but if Chen Dong intended to do it, I, as a senior brother, will have no choice but to personally kill him with my own hands!”
“But what else is there to pa*s or not to pa*s now that Chen Dong has had his statue erected by the Xiongnu Monument?”
Bai Qi said worriedly, “If word of this gets out, it will definitely blow up the entire Great Snow Dragon Riding Army!”
“Then we’ll hide it! Chen Dong’s disappearance is already a mystery, and without seeing him in person and knowing the real situation, no one can conclude anything!”
Huo Zhenxiao ordered in a deep voice, “This matter can only be known to you and me, if there is a third person in the army who knows about it, Bai Qi will have your head brought to you!”
Bai Qi bowed and took orders.
Huo Zhenxiao waved his hand, gesturing for Bai Qi to leave.
After Bai Qi left, Huo Zhenxiao leaned back in his chair and closed his eyes, rubbing the bridge of his nose, and murmured softly, “Chen Dong, Chen Dong, what the hell have you …… done? Making so much noise in Hun, I might as well not know you’re alive.”
Huo Zhenxiao’s feeble sigh echoed through the room, “I hope your brat is pa*sive and not active, otherwise don’t blame senior brother for being unkind.”
At the end of his sigh, the room instead echoed with a self-deprecating laugh from Huo Zhenxiao.
All have been monuments to the statue, in the Hun, thousands of years of history, who the hell can be pa*sive to this extent ah?
Pa*sive …… into a being that the Huns offer up to faith?
The Huns’ royal city.
Under the night, the square of the royal city, the lights are magnificent.
The crowds were huge and the noise shook the sky.
All were immersed in the shock and horror of the moment.
No one had expected that the one sitting on a fierce beast of a different species like the Snow Lion was actually a man from the domain|!
The mountains of chatter and shouts of astonishment made the entire mountainous sea of people in the King’s Court Square seem to boil over.
Shock, resentment, disbelief ……
What is this?
When had the people of the domain ever been so powerful in the Huns to such an extent?
The hundred tribes outside the domain within the domain live and die in great enmity, united in heaven and generations of enemies.
In ordinary times.
This is the maximum tolerance that the tribes can allow for the usual mutual trade.
But at this moment, a man from the domain, riding the king of beasts captured by the Hun king in a 10,000-strong procession, even proudly at the front of the procession, leading the Hun king, the princess and a host of hundred officials slowly in a leading position, this was simply humiliating!
There were even many Huns who, after their shock and anger, quickly reacted.
To be able to stand in front of the King of the Huns at this juncture of the day and lead the procession forward meant something very different!
Gazes were directed towards the huge figure, which had been shrouded in red cloth and had not been revealed.
An unprecedented fury rose from the depths of the Huns’ hearts, as if a volcano had erupted.
The crowd was in full swing.
Wang Yu struggled to squeeze into the crowd and squeezed his way to Zhang Chao’s side.
Zhang Chao and the others had already recovered, and when he saw the panting Wang Yu, Zhang Chao hurriedly asked.
Wang Yu wiped a handful of sweat from his forehead, “The family head told the family head to stay put and wait and see what happens, after gaining insight into all of it, he will report back to the family head and ask the family head to make a decision!”
Zhang Chao and the others nodded their heads.
The situation before them had gone beyond their expectations and was simply beyond their control.
If Chen Dong had merely strayed into the Thirteen Cities of Xiongnu, or even been a slave, their dark guards would have been able to forcibly snatch the man and directly take Chen Dong away.
But now …… the young master was somehow going to make a name for himself in the history books of the foreigners!
Such a grand and magnificent scene, concerning the whole Huns.
Their dark guards, not to mention grabbing people, even if they make the slightest move, they will definitely be wiped out by the Hun army in a very short time!
There was no other way but to wait!
Boom, boom, boom ……
With a salute, trumpets and the national anthem, the atmosphere in the King’s Court Square was propelled to a climax.
However, the clamouring and clamouring of the people around the square was what made the atmosphere a little odd and embarra*sing.
Sitting on the back of the Snowy Lion, Chen Dong’s gaze drifted a little as he looked at the endless sea of people around him.
The rolling waves of sound rushed into his ears.
Although it was deafening, it still caught something.
“Aren’t Shying and I a couple? Why are …… these people still acting like they are seeing me for the first time, acting so shocked and angry?”
This was the thought in Chen Dong’s mind.
It was also at this time.
The King of Xiongnu led Xixing and the hundred officials, quickly stepped forward and stood in line in the king’s court square amidst the wind and snow and the noise.
Immediately afterwards, the Hun King was walking to a position side by side with Chen Dong and the Snow Lion.
Raising his hands, he pressed them across the room.
“People, today …… you will witness the supreme glory of Xiongnu, and you will also be the witnesses to the upcoming return of our Xiongnu’s prosperity to its former glory! You will be the witnesses and in the future you will also be the ones to experience it!”
The voice was smooth and unhurried.
Yet it rushed up to the heavens and cracked the ears of everyone in the crowded hills, augmented by amplified sound, and fell clearly into the ears of everyone.
Those who witnessed it?
For a moment, the people, who had been clamouring and discontented, stopped talking.
Countless curious and puzzled eyes were fixed on the Hun.
Because of the King’s words, the people were able to suppress their anger for the time being.
All was quiet, except for the wind and snow.
The King of the Xiongnu stood in the forefront, a king of great majesty, with the arrogance and self-confidence of a superior being on his brow.
His voice was thick and penetrating.
“Thanks to the favour of the Wolf of Heaven, who has sent down for us the greatest general, it will be he, the Greedy Wolf! He will lead our Xiongnu to regain the majesty of the kingdom and the glory of the world!”
As he spoke, the King of Xiongnu pointed his backhand at Chen Dong, who was riding on the back of the Snowy Lion, his gaze burning and his face full of smiles.
Under the gaze of countless gazes.
Chen Dong sat majestically on top of the Snowy Lion, dressed in military attire, with an imposing manner and a determination that could not be described in words between his eyebrows.
The sight alone was indeed daunting.
But the face of the people of the domain was one that left all the Xiongnu people, puzzled and full of indignation at the same time.
Only, as the Hun King’s next words rang out, the tide of people, dead as stagnant water, exploded!
The King of Xiongnu said in a loud voice, “From now on, this heavenly dragon son-in-law of the King will definitely lead us, trample down Zhenjiang City and lead the hundred tribes to the southern fertile fields!”
Mountains and seas of shrieks.
Everyone was nonplussed.
It was not just because of the vision contained in these words of the Hun King.
It was even more because of the four words – Heaven’s gift of a dragon son-in-law!
It was clear to all the Xiongnu that the King of Xiongnu had only one daughter in his offspring, a magnificent and charming woman.
Amongst the hundred tribes, there were even countless warriors who wanted to gain the admiration of the demon lady Shying Xing.
But now …… the first daughter of the snowy plains had become the wife of a man from the domain?
The Great Snowy Plain, the warriors of the Hundred Tribes, which point is not better than this domain insider?
Time and time again, touching, words provoking.
It was as if it was a red-hot sword in the hands of the Hun King, stabbing every Hun fiercely again and again.
“Is it madness? What kind of sins has this created?”
“Has my Great Hun ever been so lowly as this? Needing a man from the domain to lead us to level the town frontier city? Needing a man from the domain to become the king’s heavenly dragon son-in-law?”
“The hundred tribes on the Great Snowy Plain, warriors as vast as the starry sea, are they still no match for this man from the domain?”
There was a huge chatter, and even some of those who were emotionally enraged, even ignored the cla*s gap in vain, and were much less evasive in their words.
The secret guards were also completely confused.
Wang Yu and Zhang Chao looked at each other.
In unison, they said, “D*mn, joking words, how did they come true?”
The two of them had flirted with this matter before, but it was only purely a flirtation.
After all, initially in their minds, there was no way Chen Dong could be the protagonist of this Hun event today!
There was no way in hell that he would be able to count the time or the experience!
But there are such coincidental things in this world!
The impossible had become a reality.
And their jokes have come true!
“Life is too unpredictable!”
Zhang Chao covered his head, dizzy at this moment, with an unreal feeling of being in a trance like a dream: “What on earth has the young master gone through when he ran to the Huns?”
“We’re too late, we’re too late!”
Wang Yu’s eyes were red: “We came here under the stars, if we hadn’t gotten lost during that time, maybe …… we wouldn’t have waited to find the young master, he would have been on the verge of becoming king in Xiongnu!”
The sigh of relief, melancholy sentiment.
The words did not end there.
The first thing you need to do is to get to the other side.
This was something that had to be reported to Chen Daolin immediately!
As the head of the secret guards, he knew that every single one of the implications was extremely serious!
But just as Wang Yu was pushing his way out.
The centre of the royal court square.
Faced with the clamour of a mountain of people.
The Hun King, however, frowned tightly and continued.
“The Heavenly Dragon’s son-in-law is the Heavenly Wolf who has blessed Xiong Nu and descended to this king, with immediate effect, this king makes Covetous Wolf the Great General of the Southern Expedition and makes Covetous Wolf the first warrior of Xiong Nu. For the future of Xiong Nu, this king has not hesitated to offend all his people and conceal everything to take the lead in setting up the eighth personal statue, that is because this king believes that under the leadership of Covetous Wolf to see, Xiong Nu in the near future will return to the old days when horses trampled on the Great Snowfield the heyday of the king’s court!”
The Hun King’s voice was urgent, even as the whole process seemed to be in a hurry.
It was inevitably a little less grand and solemn.
But whether it was Xixing, or Chen Dong, or even the hundred officials standing behind him, they all knew what the King of Xiong Nu’s intentions were.
Sitting on the back of the Snowy Lion, Chen Dong looked down on the rolling tide of people from a high position, and finally his gaze fell profoundly on the Hun King.
He could see that the Hun King’s hands, which were tucked away in his king’s robe, were trembling faintly!
It was real fear!
He could also understand the reason for the Hun’s fear.
If this event had been held for any Hun, no, if it had been held for any warrior of the great snowy plains, the Hun would never have been so afraid.
But by chance, it was on him, a man from the domain.
He had lost his memory, but in the past few days, he had also learnt about the deep hatred between the inner and outer domains.
The Hun King’s move today was undoubtedly a risk to the heavens!
He is risking his own throne and the lives of his family.
He is risking the trust of the entire Xiongnu people.
If he is convinced, then he will lead his troops south, conquer the sands, and sit on this unprecedented triple crown of glory for the Huns.
A monument, a statue, a title and glory.
If not, he would have to die, and the throne of the Huns, even under the wrath of the people, would have to be shaken and put in jeopardy.
Water can carry a boat, but it can also overturn it!
It’s a big gamble for the sky, if we still only care about the solemnity and majesty of the ceremony and disregard the emotions of the people, we will only end up making all the people even more impatient, and the risk to the sky will be even greater!
Everything is simple, fast and messy, is the best policy!
“Fire the salute, unveil the statue!”
The Hun King looked at the surging tide of people, there was a hint of scruple and fear deep in his eyes, but still, with a wave of his sleeve robe, he ordered loudly.
Boom, boom, boom ……
In an instant.
The royal court square.
The salute shot up to the sky.
The national anthem of the Huns was in full swing.
And in the sky above, countless warplanes once again crossed the sky, their tail flames casting a brilliant smoke of seven colours, like a rainbow across the sky.
Such a grand spectacle still could not stop the people’s indignation and opposition.
“Your Majesty, think twice!”
A loud shout suddenly exploded from the clamour of the people.
In the midst of the angry and noisy crowd, this shout was incomparably clear.
As the first person shouted and knelt down, it was as if dominoes were being made.
“Your Majesty, think twice!”
“Your Majesty, think twice!”
A mournful wail echoed through heaven and earth.
The surging tide of people seemed to be rising in waves at this moment, as layer upon layer of people, one after another, knelt down.
In the blink of an eye.
The sea of people, which could not be seen at first glance, was directly “dwarfed”!
The king of the Huns trembled, the veins at the corners of his eyes suddenly bulged, jumping wildly, and the hands under the king’s robe were clenched into fists, forcibly holding back the trembling.
What should I do about ……?
