In the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, there was only one Dragon Leader Guard.
Now Huo Zhenxiao was calling Bai Qi the leader in front of Chen Dong, which was the highest praise for Bai Qi.
Chen Dong did not care either, the position of Dragon Leader Guard of the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army was originally Bai Qi’s. He was far from being worthy of the position.
He was still far from being worthy of the position.
No one in the Great Snow Dragon Cavalry had ever treated Bai Qi like a military commander either.
Chen Dong looked at Bai Qi in Huo Zhenxiao’s arms.
The rugged face, blood-stained and faintly white, was no longer the slightest bit alive.
All the things that had happened in the past came to his mind, a mixture of flavours.
He and Bai Qi had not met each other, and it was thanks to Bai Qi’s care that he had entered the Great Snow Dragon Riders’ army when he first entered the abyss.
He was really a good army commander.
He was also a man who stood up to the sky!
“Fetch a bottle of wine for me.”
Huo Zhenxiao tilted his head and looked at Chen Dong.
Chen Dong turned around and walked out of the barracks, quickly handing Huo Zhenxiao a bottle of strong wine.
Huo Zhenxiao opened the cork and took a shallow taste before handing it to Chen Dong, who also took a sip before pouring all the rest of the wine onto the ground.
He did not wait for Huo Zhenxiao to say anything.
Chen Dong took out three more cigarettes, lit them up and placed them on the ground.
The smoke rises up.
Huo Zhenxiao slowly put Bai Qi on the ground.
Then he and Chen Dong stood side by side, both of them looking solemn and dignified.
Almost simultaneously, they stood upright and gave a solemn military salute to Bai Qi.
Huo Zhenxiao said in a deep voice: “At this time of war, the funeral is simple, if this battle is won, it will be set as a solemn funeral for White Leader, White Leader …… go well!”
The words to the end, forgiving the heart of Huo Zhenxiao, the voice can not help but some trembling.
A simple funeral ceremony.
Compared to those who have a horse and leather, only a name, is already excellent treatment.
After it was over.
Huo Zhenxiao had the body of Bai Qi taken away.
Then it was silent again, and he plunged into the huge business of work.
“Do you need me to do anything?”
Chen Dong walked over to the desk and asked in a deep voice.
What he did not expect was this.
Huo Zhenxiao just calmly spat out one word: “Wait!”
Chen Dong was directly confused for two seconds, “One of your battle damage reports and Chen Daojun invited me back, is that why I came here to wait?”
“Master has gone to your place?”
Huo Zhenxiao paused and raised his eyebrows towards Chen Dong, “Then that’s right, just wait.”
Chen Dong’s brow was furrowed, confusion in his eyes.
Huo Zhenxiao explained, “If according to my plan, after your return, either you would lead your army out of the city and I would hold Zhenjiang City, or I would lead my army out of the city and you would hold Zhenjiang City, but since Master has already been to you, the point of your return is to wait, in addition now a half million divided army of Xiong Nu has not reached its goal and is coming towards Zhenjiang City. ”
“It is just as well that you stay in the city and defend it together with me.”
Chen Dong spread his hands, “But when Chen Daojun came to my place, he didn’t mention anything else at all.”
“He wouldn’t have mentioned it.”
Huo Zhenxiao pinched the bridge of his swollen nose, “Master’s character, as the chess player, would never spill the beans on what to do next until the last moment, but I suspect that you are the most crucial in this great battle within and outside the domain.”
“It’s not about whether Zhenjiang City’s defences are broken or not, nor is it about winning or losing inside or outside the domain, but it’s about you and only you anyway!”
Every word seemed to have been squeezed out of his teeth with all his might.
“How is that possible?”
Chen Dong shrugged his shoulders, and as soon as the words left his mouth, he suddenly changed his face again.
“Moreover, I am certain that Zhenjiang City will never break!”
Huo Zhenxiao suddenly opened his eyes, a brilliant aura bursting out in his eyes, “The 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riding Army is just a wall to stop the Xiongnu from moving south, Zhenjiang City is the final bottom line, once the time comes to break the city, Master will definitely sell the medicine in the gourd.”
“You’re that sure?”
Chen Dong looked at Huo Zhenxiao calmly.
“Because before the battle, Master’s series of perverse operations were clearly standing in for the Extra-territorial Hundred Clans now, which is simply not normal.”
Huo Zhenxiao shrugged, “I am not sure, but I believe that Master will not really side with the Hundred Clans, he must have his reasons for doing so!”
Chen Dong stuck his hands in his trouser pockets and frowned slightly with some resentment, “Like you, I also want to know what he’s up to.”
“You’ve just returned, go and put on your armour, an army of half a million from the Hundred Clans should be arriving soon, today is the third day of the Great War, when the Northern Region is at its most empty and tired, they will definitely not let go of this heavenly opportunity.”
Huo Zhenxiao sat up straight again, his eyebrows showing a look of disdain, “The next step is up to me and you, they have already died many, many times, the great army relies on the Great Snow Dragon Cavalry to resist, the hidden world still has to rely on you and me!”
Chen Dong did not say more, locking his eyebrows and walking towards the outside.
When he reached the door, Huo Zhenxiao called out to Chen Dong again.
“If it really comes down to life and death, I will go ahead of you, you must hold back and remember that Zhenjiang City is the final bottom line!”
The voice was low, harbouring an unspeakable determination.
Chen Dong was silent for a second.
Looking at Chen Dong as he left, Huo Zhenxiao got up and walked over to the lance, gently stroking it over, “This time …… let’s have a good battle, old buddy!”
Xiongnu King’s Palace.
Inside the king’s palace.
The fire was dazzling and the blazing heat dispelled the chill.
Xixing sat on his throne, looking at the battle reports that were presented to him, his brow furrowed, even huffing with a hint of horrible anger.
Xixing slapped his palm on the table, sweeping all the battle reports away with a wave of his hand.
Sheets and sheets of battle reports flew down like snowflakes.
Inside the king’s hall, the air seemed to freeze in this instant.
The hoarse voice of Sky Wolf came from behind him.
“Shame! He is the greatest shame in my life!”
Shying gritted his teeth, his face flushed red with resentment, anger and madness, and his body trembled.
“The man who was pushed over the statue?”
Skywolf stepped out and stood beside her.
Pointing to a battle report on the ground, Shying Xing said angrily, “This one battle report is all about him, blaming me, one of the half-million allied troops sent out to successfully divide the 10,000 troops within Zhenjiang City according to our plan, but after the great battle was over, he appeared and killed everyone in the allied army and took away the former leading guard, Bai Qi, straight away! ”
“He is slapping me in the face, he is telling the hundred tribes how blind I really was in the first place, I killed my father, I nailed the Huns to the pillar of shame, and now this man who I had my heart set on, who I thought would be the sharpest sword in the south, is now the strongest barrier to our southward advance!”
The sound of anger echoed through the king’s hall.
Skywolf was unusually calm: “So what? When the result is laid out before the Hundred Tribes, the ten thousand thousand miles of fertile fields within the domain will be enough for them to forget everything.”
There was a pause.
He said in a deep voice, “It’s almost time, so it’s time for you and I to go to the front together, today’s battle is of great importance, and it is necessary to supervise the battle.”
Shying said angrily, hating to gnash her silver teeth.
The words had barely left her mouth.
She added, “Take Ye Linglong with you, the Hong Society will look like our dog, but it’s all on her alone!”
