Within the Great Snow Dragon Rider Army, Huo Zhenxiao is the master and the soul of the army.
In the Great Snow Dragon Rider Army, Huo Zhenxiao has supreme authority and his words are followed by law!
Huo Zhenxiao’s idea of decapitation coincided with Chen Dong’s suggestion.
In the discussion just now, Huo Zhenxiao’s words were obviously extremely detailed planning in his mind already.
On the contrary, he had to ask Bai Qi to list out the detailed information of the extra-territorial hundred tribes and take it to Chen Dong.
This was clearly the intention of the cultivation test!
After a brief moment of puzzlement, Bai Qi came to his senses in a flash.
He had been in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army for so many years, even when he was once a leading guard, there had never been a time when Huo Zhenxiao made a decision that he asked down for advice.
This …… was the first time!
Bai Qi respectfully clasped his fist at Huo Zhenxiao, and then turned to leave.
Looking at the departing Bai Qi, Huo Zhenxiao rubbed his chin and said meaningfully, “Master, I wonder if this time, little Chen Dong will surprise us?”
He was only a few years older than Chen Dong, but when he said these words, his entire aura seemed to have aged a lot.
The so-called pale was not derogatory, but more mature.
So mature that it was as if he was a late old man who had seen the world and looked at a young junior.
After Bai Qi left Huo Zhenxiao’s room, he did not return directly to his barracks, but went to the intelligence centre in Zhenjiang City.
The intelligence of the Hundred Extra-territorial Clans was not considered to be much of a secret in the Great Snow Dragon Rider Army.
It was even open to all soldiers, and the information, to be precise, was collected by the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army so that the soldiers could better understand the Extra-territorial Hundred Tribes, in a big way.
After spending half a day, Bai Qi collected and collated the information of the Extra-territorial Hundred Tribes into a book, before leaving the intelligence centre and returning to the barracks.
Inside the barracks.
Chen Dong and the others did not have a mission today, it was a rest day.
Meng Dabiao and the three of them were each busy with their own affairs.
Chen Dong, on the other hand, leaned against the window with an indifferent expression, holding the Tao Te Ching and reading it carefully.
He was forced by circumstances to come to the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, so he did not bring too many gifts with him when he was leaving.
The Tao Te Ching was the only book he carried with him.
I don’t know when Chen Dong had already taken reading the Tao Te Ching for granted.
When something becomes a habit, it is always difficult to suddenly part with it.
During these days in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, once he was free, Chen Dong always pa*sed his time with the Tao Te Ching as well.
Even if he already knew the contents of the Tao Te Ching by heart and could even recite it backwards.
But every time he reads it carefully, Chen Dong always gets a new feeling.
Completely immersed in it, his mind was clear and peaceful.
The whole person is plunged into a strange state of calm from the inside out, as if he is isolated from the world and left alone.
“Brother Dong, I’ve watched you read this Tao Te Ching many times, and you’re not tired of reading it?”
Meng Dabiao was bored and came over to Chen Dong to look at the contents of the Tao Te Ching for a few moments before shaking his head and turning to the side: “Forget it, I can’t read these things, I get dizzy just by looking at them. I can’t read this stuff, it makes me dizzy.”
“That’s what you call suffering from lack of culture.” Sun Kong said with a smile.
Meng Dabiao put up a middle finger: “I’m uneducated, but I have big muscles, so I can go into battle and kill the enemy and that’s it.”
Sun Kong and Zhou Yao burst into laughter.
Among the five men, Meng Dabiao was the only one who was a living treasure, which made the atmosphere of the whole team a little more lively.
In comparison, the four of them were all too stoic in their personalities.
Chen Dong returned to his senses, glanced at Meng Dabiao and said with a smile, “I have long since made reading this book a habit, and I always feel uncomfortable in my body if I don’t read it.”
“Then why did you read it in the first place?” Meng Dabiao asked rhetorically.
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and said with a light smile, “They said that reading this book could save lives.”
“Save your life?”
Meng Dabiao froze for a moment and then laughed, “If reading the book could save lives, there would be no need for our Great Snow Dragon Riding Army to go into battle and kill the enemy, hahaha ……”
Chen Dong shook his head, but continued to look through the Tao Te Ching.
At this time, Bai Qi walked into the barracks.
Meng Dabiao, who was idle and bored, instantly turned on his gossip: “Chief Bai Wu, what is the master looking for you to do? Is he going to be promoted?”
Sun Kong and Zhou Yao also looked at Bai Qi.
At Meng Dabiao’s words, both of them felt that they had a point.
After all, Bai Qi was once the leading guard, even if he had been jerked off to the end, but the thin camel was bigger than the horse, and the old friendship that once existed was still there, so it was no surprise to say that the Sovereign was suddenly giving Bai Qi a promotion and a title.
“How could I possibly be promoted, my affairs have long been no secret in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.”
Bai Qi smiled awkwardly and swept his gaze at Chen Dong as if he had no idea.
Chen Dong closed the Tao Te Ching and looked up at Bai Qi, then glanced at the thick booklet in Bai Qi’s hand, and digressed, “Chief Bai, do we have a mission to carry out today?”
“A city patrol mission, 8pm to 0pm.”
Bai Qi said, raising his finger to point at Meng Dabiao, “During the night, you three will work in groups, while Chen Dong and I will work in groups and patrol the city separately.”
Sun Kong and Zhou Yao nodded their heads at the same time.
Meng Dabiao, on the other hand, clasped his hands to his chest and said with a smile, “Good, good, Chief Bai Wu don’t hide it, everyone sleeps on the same kang, making it sound like a few of us don’t know that for the past half a month or so, Dong won’t sleep on the kang in the latter half of the night.”
“Da Biao, you’re so ugly!”
Bai Qi turned his words around and stared at Meng Dabiao with a face full of disgust.
“What?” Meng Dabiao froze.
The disgust on Bai Qi’s face intensified, “You’re ugly and you talk a lot.”
Meng Dabiao: “……”
Chen Dong couldn’t hold back and let out a “poof” of laughter.
Sun Kong and Zhou Yao even laughed out loud straight away, leaning back and forth.
It was no secret to Chen Dong about what had been going on in the barracks for the past half a month or so.
This was also clear to Chen Dong and Bai Qi, and it was impossible to hide it from the three Meng Dabiao.
It was enough to hide the three days when he was injured and unconscious.
As for not sleeping in the barracks in the latter part of the night every night, the five men had already formed a habit of keeping it a secret from the public.
And Meng Dabiao and the three of them didn’t care about it at all.
It was because on their first day of scouting patrols with the Great Snow Dragon Riders, the three of them had already seen the difference between themselves and Chen Dong.
Such a person, even if the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army intended to cultivate them internally, was something that could not be faulted.
It was less than eight o’clock when Meng Dabiao and the three of them went ahead to hand over their patrol of the city in accordance with Bai Qi’s explanation.
After the three left.
Bai Qi picked up the booklet and handed it to Chen Dong: “Take this to the practice room, the master will be looking for you later, just read the things in this booklet before he arrives.”
“It’s that simple?”
Chen Dong looked puzzled, “What’s in here?”
“Don’t think too simply.”
Bai Qi smiled in a mysterious manner, “This is something that I have spent half a day working out, you will know it when you read it later.”
for more than half a month.
This was also the first time Chen Dong came to the practice room in the middle of the night.
However, after entering the practice room, he did not immediately start training.
Instead, he sat on the futon and opened the booklet given by Bai Qi.
As soon as he saw the contents of the booklet, Chen Dong frowned in surprise: “Information on the hundred tribes outside the domain?” |
Immediately afterwards, Chen Dong slowly flipped through it.
The booklet contained information on the hundred tribes outside the realm, but it was not very detailed, only highlighting some key points or fragments.
Chen Dong didn’t care, and slowly flipped through it.
In the practice room, there was silence.
The only sound was the wind and snow blowing in through the vent.
Huo Zhenxiao came into the practice room.
He did not disturb Chen Dong, who was looking through the information on the Hundred Extra-terrestrial Tribes, but stood by the side in silence, waiting quietly.
When Chen Dong put down the booklet, Huo Zhenxiao then slowly spoke, “Finished reading it?”
“You gave it to me?”
Chen Dong twisted his head to look at Huo Zhenxiao, “Is it to ask me which tribe’s leader to pick to a*sa*sinate?”
Huo Zhenxiao smiled spontaneously, pulled over a futon and sat in front of Chen Dong: “It is easy to talk to a smart person.”
Chen Dong smiled faintly.
Nowadays, the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army appeared to be calm and quiet on the surface, and everything was just as usual.
But this was only what was seen in the eyes of the ordinary soldiers.
Knowing that the Hundred Clans Order was the sword that now broke the sky over Zhenjiang City.
Now that Bai Qi had shown him the information on the intelligence of the Extra-terrestrial Hundred Tribes, at first, Chen Dong was a little confused, but when he saw Huo Zhenxiao, it became clear to Chen Dong.
“So, which one do you think is suitable?” Huo Zhenxiao asked.
“The Turkic tribe.”
Chen Dong did not hesitate and spat out the words dryly.
Huo Zhenxiao’s eyes changed and he said in mock surprise, “Why choose the Turkic tribe?”
“A tribe that sells its daughters for glory, has become a subordinate tribe of the Xiongnu royal family by marriage, has become the mother’s family of the Xiongnu royal family, and its strength is only in the middle of the country, if such a good soft persimmon is not pinched, who else will be pinched?”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose and smiled playfully, “Killing the mother’s family is enough to shake the Xiong Nu royal family, once the royal court moves, the time for the hundred tribes to join forces and fall apart will not be far away, even if they don’t fall apart completely, the remaining tribes will join forces and the threat to the Great Snow Dragon Riders and Zhenjiang City will plummet!”
The words fell, and the practice room fell into silence.
Even though his face remained calm, his eyes had already revealed the storm in his heart.
A long time later.
Huo Zhenxiao took a deep breath and said with a smile, “Heroes see eye to eye.”
“But one has to prepare in advance, one is to know which are the deadly enemies of the Turkic tribes? Secondly, prepare some ‘evidence’ to facilitate planting evidence.”
Chen Dong said calmly, but his eyes were radiant.
“I will arrange these, just be ready to leave Zhenjiang City with me.”
Huo Zhenxiao got up and walked towards the outside, not intending to linger any longer.
Chen Dong was stunned for a moment, “You really want me to go out with you?”
“What else? There is no drama in the army.” Huo Zhenxiao responded as he walked.
“When are you leaving?” Chen Dong asked.
Huo Zhenxiao’s feet paused at the doorway and hesitated for a moment, “When you are able to point the Nine Heavens Terrifying Dragon Technique to the fifteenth movement, that will be the moment we leave Zhenjiang City.”
Chen Dong nodded his head in response.
After Huo Zhenxiao left, his gaze gradually deepened, “Why do I have to go out with you?”
In Chen Dong’s opinion, there were many people in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army who were suitable for this task.
Leaving aside everything else, the eleven Golden Guards and Bai Qi alone were more suitable candidates than him.
He had only been at the Northern Frontier for a few days?
He is still familiar with the Northern Frontier, and his knowledge of the intelligence information of the hundred tribes outside the realm is limited to this booklet tonight.
As for experience on the battlefield, there is even less.
No matter how one compared them, there were few candidates more suitable than him.
But Chen Dong could not refuse, for it was Huo Zhenxiao’s decision.
The supreme master of the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, his words were followed by his actions!
After taking a deep breath, Chen Dong suppressed his doubts and got up to restore himself to a calm state.
He then entered into the training state of the Nine Heavens Dragon Scare Technique once again.
The movements were slow and gentle, but this time, Chen Dong did not take any chances, instead, after completing the tenth movement, he immediately stopped training with a panting breath and sat down to rest, and only when he had almost recovered did he re-enter the second round of training.
Repeating the first ten movements of the Nine Heavens Dragon Scare Technique over and over again was boring and tedious.
However, Chen Dong was completely immersed in it and persevered relentlessly.
The last time he trained, the terrifying pressure he had been subjected to because he had forcibly switched to the eleventh movement was something Chen Dong remembered vividly even now.
At that time, he was indeed thinking of going back as soon as possible, for the simple reason that the terrifying effect of the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique had given him hope.
As long as he practiced the 108 movements of the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique as quickly as possible, even if he could not control his muscles and sense out his Qi, this set of movements could still make his strength grow by a large margin.
With that kind of strength, even if he were to face such a powerful person as Iga Feiyu, who appeared in the Bureau of Heavenly Slaughter, he would no longer have to deal with the situation as he did before.
With the strength to protect themselves, they could naturally go back.
But the pain of the last time, which was almost like a “backlash”, had made Chen Dong deeply appreciate the meaning of “speed is not enough”, and now that he was training again, he could only resist the urge to go back and try again and again.
The pressure of the eleventh move was something Chen Dong had felt.
So he was clear that even if it wasn’t like what Huo Zhenxiao had said, he still needed to repeat the first ten moves over and over again, so that his body could probably adapt to the pressure of the first ten moves before he had the chance to switch to the eleventh move.
This is a process where quantitative change causes qualitative change.
The initial piling up of the number of repetitive movements is indispensable, and there is no shortcut possible.
Since Huo Zhenxiao was certain that he would leave Zhenjiang City with him when he reached the fifteenth movement of the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique, then at least in Huo Zhenxiao’s eyes, the time it took him to train up to the fifteenth movement of the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique was not long!
It was also at the time when Chen Dong was immersed in training the Nine Heavens Frightening Dragon Technique.
Inside Zhenjiang City.
Bai Qi had already reunited with Meng Dabiao and the three of them.
As for Chen Dong’s whereabouts, everyone had an unspoken understanding, and Meng Dabiao did not pursue the matter.
The four of them were patrolling within Zhenjiang City.
It was said to be a patrol, but for the heavily guarded Zhenjiang City, with the sergeants standing guard on the four-sided city walls, the patrol duties within the city were actually really less stressful to the extent that it was equivalent to a routine walk.
After all, if even the people from the Hundred Extra-territorial Clans had come in, that would mean that the Four Square City walls were not far from being lost!
“Chief Bai, we’re so bored walking around, can we end the mission early?”
Meng Dabiao asked, bored out of his mind.
Bai Qi gave a sidelong glance, “Do you think this is home?”
Meng Dabiao laughed and scratched his head, “Don’t I think it’s unnecessary for us to patrol like this? The four walls are guarded by our brothers, and even if the four gates are supplied day and night, they are still guarded by heavy troops, so even flies can’t get in, so what’s the point of patrolling the city?”
The words had just fallen.
Sun Kong’s voice suddenly sank, “Why is Commander Xiao out of the city in the middle of the night?”
