Winner Takes All Chapter 949-950

Chapter 949

The next morning.

When Chen Dong woke up and opened his eyes, he saw that Huo Zhenxiao was sitting by the side.

His eyes gradually regained focus, but he found himself lying in Huo Zhenxiao’s room.


Huo Zhenxiao let go of his hand and leaned back on the chair in front of the desk with a slightly tired look, “You missed today’s morning drill with this sleep.”

“I slept here all night?”

Chen Dong looked at Huo Zhenxiao in dismay, the exhaustion on Huo Zhenxiao’s face was obviously caused by keeping a sitting position all night.

“Well, you kid are the first person to ask me, Huo Zhenxiao, to sleep with him.” Huo Zhenxiao raised his hand and rubbed his face, then lit another cigarette and swallowed a cloud of mist.

Chen Dong: “……”

After taking a deep breath, Chen Dong did not dwell on Huo Zhenxiao’s words.

He turned to ask, “How is Sun Kong doing?”

“Life is back, but he has to recuperate for three months before he can go back into battle again, I guess.”

Huo Zhenxiao shrugged, then with a hint of cynicism on his face, holding a cigarette in his mouth, he picked up the Tao Te Ching on the table and teasingly laughed, “You are quite laid back, you carry this Tao Te Ching with you everywhere you go, it’s quite a good book.”

“I’m used to it.”

Chen Dong sat up again, his body had recovered a lot after a night of deep sleep, but there was still a soreness and pain as well as a feeling of weakness all over his body.

“Go back to the barracks and rest for another two days, I’ve explained to them that you won’t be given a mission during these two days.”

Huo Zhenxiao closed the Tao Te Ching and tossed it directly to Chen Dong: “This time, you have made great merits in the battle, but in order to hide it, there will not be any military merits counted either, everything will be treated as if it never happened!”


Chen Dong nodded, closed his clothes and tucked the Tao Te Ching away, before he got out of bed and took two steps outside, before suddenly stopping in his tracks again.

“Something else?”

Huo Zhenxiao asked, lightly raising his sword brows.

“Within the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, there should be a mole, and the mercenaries are coming straight to us.”

After dropping a sentence without looking back, Chen Dong was leaving in a big stride.

Only just as he reached the door, Huo Zhenxiao’s words came from behind him.

“It’s about time, this kind of humiliation, it’s better to kill a thousand by mistake than to spare one!”

Chen Dong’s pupils shrank, was this something that …… already knew?

After froze for a moment, he was relieved.

What he could think of, with Bai Qi and Huo Zhenxiao’s battlefield experience, would he not think of it?

Rubbing his nose, Chen Dong laughed to himself.

This is me thinking too much.

“If you go back now, you should be able to see the Golden Guards dispose of this matter.”


When Chen Dong left, the smile on Huo Zhenxiao’s face disappeared.

In its place, it was still the same majesty and coldness of old.

It was only a pair of eyes that became unusually deep underneath the sword brows.

“Not even asking?”

A softly murmured voice was dense with suspicion.

Ever since Chen Dong had awakened, Huo Zhenxiao had deliberately refrained from mentioning the matter of the “Daoist Heart Planting Demon”, but as the person involved, Chen Dong had actually not mentioned it either.

Rubbing his nose, Huo Zhenxiao closed his eyes and gently tapped his knuckles on the desktop.

Da, da, da ……

The sound, softly echoing around the room, was not too fast or too slow, as if he was thinking about something.

When Chen Dong returned to the barracks.

Bai Qi, Meng Dabiao and Zhou Yao were all in the barracks.

In yesterday’s battle, Chen Dong and Sun Kong were the most seriously injured.

And of the three of them, Meng Dabiao was clearly the heaviest, with gauze of all sizes wrapped around his body.

These wounds were, by and large, all from the very beginning, when the three of them were trying to cover for Zhou Yao and Sun Kong’s retreat.

“Brother Dong, recovered so quickly?”

Meng Dabiao was a little surprised to see Chen Dong, recalling the events on the battlefield yesterday, and could not hide the scorn in his eyes.

Chen Dong scratched his head, “Dabiao, why do I feel that you are suddenly a little afraid of me?”

As he spoke, Chen Dong swept a glance at Bai Qi and Zhou Yao again.

Bai Qi’s face was calm, but it was Zhou Yao, who looked no better than Meng Dabiao.

It was just that as he asked this question, Meng Dabiao and Zhou Yao’s faces had more than scruples and a few more doubts.

“Brother Dong, you ……”

The first thing you need to do is to get a good idea of what you’re getting into.

The other side of Bai Qi then lowered his head and coughed a few times, interrupting Meng Dabiao’s words, “Dabiao, forget what the master explained?”

At these words.

Meng Dabiao hurriedly shut his mouth and lowered his head, while Zhou Yao also looked away, not meeting Chen Dong’s eyes.

The matter of Chen Dong’s killing spree on the battlefield had been given a deadly order by Huo Zhenxiao for them not to recount it to Chen Dong!

Following closely behind.

Bai Qi stood up and patted Chen Dong on the shoulder, “It’s alright, everyone returned safely anyway, it’s just that Sun Kong needs to recuperate for a while longer.”

“Mm, I know, the master has told me all about it.”

Chen Dong nodded and turned to ask, “By the way, within Zhenjiang City this morning, was there any storm?”

Since Huo Zhenxiao had already said something like that, it was obvious that this purge would definitely set off quite a storm.

“The storm rose just as soon as the day dawned.”

Bai Qi said in a cold voice with a sullen stare, “The Golden Guards are dealing with this now, and you just returned, so you can’t feel anything.”

“The Sovereign is really ruthless this time, really wanting to kill a thousand by mistake rather than spare one?”

Meng Dabiao said with astonishment and apprehension, “The implications of this are too involved, too big.”

“Yes, I just went out and those generals looked at me as if they had seen a ghost, avoiding me like a snake!” Zhou Yao also shrugged his shoulders and agreed.

After the morning drill was over.

The first rays of sunlight poured into Zhenjiang City.

The cleansing, then, began with the Golden Guards leading the way.

The Sovereign ordered it, the three great Golden Guards led it, and it was already a complete cleansing of Zhenjiang City and the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders from the top down.

And the reason for this began at the very beginning of the purge.

The 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders all knew that the purge was related to their five-man army, but the details had already been cla*sified as top secret by Huo Zhenxiao, and no one else could know about it.

“A mole is something that the Lord hates the most.”

Bai Qi rubbed his chin and said in a deep voice, “If there really is a mole in the Great Snow Dragon Riders’ army, it would be a complete humiliation to the Sovereign, and it would be strange if the Sovereign didn’t have such a thunderous fury.”

“The storm should last for a day, right?”

Chen Dong rubbed his nose, squinting his eyes as he laughed lightly.


Inside Zhenjiang City, people were on tenterhooks.

From time to time, cries of injustice resounded from all the major barracks, miserable as if they were invisible hands, tensing the nerves of everyone in the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riding Army to the core on this early morning.

The three great golden guards, with their men and horses, searched through the major barracks, taking away anyone who had a problem with any of Chen Dong and his five men, pending their sentencing.

In the eyes of ordinary people, this was indeed a bit too aggressive, but real soldiers know how terrible it is to have a mole in the army on the battlefield.

A thousand miles of dike is destroyed by an anthill, and in the army, a mole is the same as an anthill!

Of course, although Huo Zhenxiao’s move was rather to kill a thousand by mistake than to spare one, but for the sake of it, it also had the feeling of making an example of a chicken and shaking a tiger from the mountain.

Inside the barracks.

Commander Xiao’s brows were knitted together, his eyes sometimes frightened, sometimes angry.

He sat in his chair, his hands clenched into fists and trembling vaguely, and his aura was sometimes raging and sometimes restrained.

The whole man was in an extremely bizarre and unstable state.

There was even a sound of gnashing of teeth coming out of his mouth every now and then.

How could he not have expected that.

Things would suddenly turn out like this!

He had clearly resisted the urge to probe and had luckily avoided a calamity.

But as soon as he turned his head, Huo Zhenxiao was pressing his big hand across his body, grating directly through the sieve, intending to sieve the entire Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.

In this way, even if he had dodged a bullet, but based on his hatred for Bai Qi alone, this time, it was enough to be taken away by the Golden Guards, to become the only one who killed the right person out of the thousand who would rather be killed by mistake!

“Run, we must run! If you don’t run, you die, if you run …… there may be a way to live!”

Finally, the light in Commander Xiao’s eyes rose firmly, his gaze burning as if he were a fierce beast.

Chapter 950

A windy and snowy town.

People are on tenterhooks, washing in silence, sweeping through the whole town.

No one was sure what was going on.

But everyone knew that the mole was connected to the White Five!

Because they knew so little, they were even more apprehensive.

The Mission Office.

Commander Xiao came pacing up and down in a hurry, standing outside the mission office, but rubbing his hands together in indecision.

He needed a mission, a mission to get out of the city!

So that he could walk out of Zhenjiang City with dignity before the Golden Guards brought him here!

Once he got out of Zhenjiang City, the sky would be high enough for birds to fly and the sea would be wide enough for fish to leap.

The only thing is that ……’s scouting patrol is not part of his Golden Guards’ army.

It’s hard to get out of the city!

“The good thing is that Timur gave me the way to contact the King’s Court Skywolf, as long as I leave Zhenjiang City and head north, with the Xiongnu King’s Court to meet me, my chances of success in escaping are going to be greater!”

This was the thought in Commander Xiao’s mind.

Before he came to the mission office, he had already thought of a back way and contacted the Xiong Nu Royal Court Skywolf in advance.

After all, there were 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders in Zhenjiang City, and it would take time for the Golden Guards to carry a small team dedicated to purging the entire army while they did their own work.

And the time before the Golden Guards found him was the best time to escape!

Looking at the tide of people coming in and out of the mission, Xiao’s heartbeat was pounding and he was on edge, his eyes anxious but with a touch of remorse.

If he hadn’t listened to Timur’s nonsense, and hadn’t fallen into Timur’s arrangement ……, why would he have been in this mess now?

Now that his life was on the line, there was only one way to go before Commander Xiao, and that was to completely surrender to the Xiongnu royal court.

Only then would he have a chance to live.

Otherwise, in the army of the Great Snow Dragon Riders, he would surely become a dead soul under the nine ghosts.

A single thought, but at this moment, brought Commander Xiao to the one-way bridge.


“Commander Xiao, what are you doing here?”

A laugh came from a voice.

Commander Xiao, who was being apprehensive, instantly his body trembled and his eyes were flustered beyond belief.

When he looked up, his expression eased a little and he greeted the man who had come out of the mission office with a feigned composure, “Old He, you’re here to receive a scouting patrol, right?”


Han, who was also a commander and had a deep relationship with Commander Xiao, was just separated under their respective Golden Guards, and now that they saw each other, there was naturally less gap and more closeness: “I don’t know why, but recently the scouting patrol missions have become more intensive, and even we, the commander, have had to lead our troops and form sizable teams to roam the snowy plains to deter. ”

For the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, for so many years, the unusual five-man regiment scouting patrol missions were to run directly to the homes of the Hundred Tribes outside the domain to patrol and scout.

Expanded to the first rank of the Commander, and indeed called it a roving deterrent!

However, Commander Xiao was clear.

The change in scouting patrols was simply the result of the combined efforts of the Hundred Extra-territorial Clans!

The night that he and Timur crossed paths of corruption, he also knew some information from Timur’s mouth.

But when he looked at the puzzled He Commander in front of him, it dawned on him that it seemed that the matter of the hundred tribes joining forces had been suppressed from above and not spread out.

“There must be a demon when things go wrong, old He, be careful when you patrol.”

Commander Xiao said, “I’ll leave now if there’s nothing else to do, the team is still busy.”

“Go, go, I have to go and count the troops now.”

Commander He waved his hand with a smile and left in the opposite direction from Commander Xiao.

It was just after Commander He had gone far away.

Commander Xiao, who had already left, walked out from the corner of the high walled compound outside the mission office.

His eyes were cold and gloomy as he looked at the direction where Commander He had left.

Commander Xiao murmured, “Old He, you can’t blame me, if you want to blame us, blame us for being familiar with each other.”

With that, he followed the direction where Commander He had left.

The entire Zhenjiang City was silent in the midst of the cleansing.

Chen Dong’s barracks was one of the very few places where the atmosphere was calm and relaxed.

The purge itself had originated from their new army of soldiers.

The only thing that bothered people was that the other soldiers always looked at them with a little scorn, avoiding them like snakes and scorpions.

This is something that Chen Dong felt when he went out, so he returned and hid in the barracks with Bai Qi, Meng Dabiao and Zhou Yao.

Only when the cleaning was over would this dilemma perhaps disappear.

“Chief Bai, why don’t we go out for a walk?”

Meng Dabiao was lying on his bed, “We’re always bored in the barracks, and there are no missions these days, so we’ll be bored out of our minds.”

“Where are we going to go? Can’t you see that the other guys are looking at us like we’re ghosts?” Zhou Yao said helplessly.

Chen Dong also laughed awkwardly.

“If the cleaning doesn’t end today and continues tomorrow, we’ll still be bored in the barracks tomorrow?” Meng Dabiao sat up, crying.

Bai Qi thought for a moment, “Let’s go to the entrance of the Four Square City, apart from the brothers standing guard on the city walls, there are only brothers from the patrol who come over from time to time.”

“Good idea!”

Meng Dabiao was instantly excited.

Chen Dong and Zhou Yao’s eyes also lit up.

After being in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army for so long, they had been going about their daily activities in an intensive manner.

Because of yesterday’s battle, it had suddenly left their new army of recruits idle, able to skip their morning drills and not carry out any missions for the last two days.

Many people had that feeling that after rushing around for a while, suddenly being idle made their whole body uncomfortable!

This was the feeling Chen Dong and the others had.

After putting on their thick robes.

The four of them walked out of the barracks in silence, and when they met some soldiers along the way, they did not dare to greet them, after all, at this time of the day, no soldier would be willing to greet them.

When they arrived at the West City Gate, there were fewer people around.

There was only one patrol in the distance, and the garrison at the city gate.

All that remained were the soldiers standing on the city walls.

Chen Dong put down his felt hat and stretched out against the wind and snow, smiling, “It’s better to come out for a walk, to be more comfortable.”

“That’s not true.” Meng Dabiao shook the snow off his body and said awkwardly, “Just now I covered up my face, but I still felt the weird looks from my brothers, so embarra*sing.”

“It can’t be helped, the master himself ordered that the matter is important, so we can only diaphragmatically deal with it.”

Bai Qi said with a smile and added, “It’s fine, you guys have been in the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army for so long, you probably haven’t run through Zhenjiang City, so take this time to have a good look at Zhenjiang City as well.”

With that, he led Chen Dong and the three of them in the direction of the West City Gate.

Compared to the fear among the Great Snow Dragon Riders inside the city, the soldiers stationed at the city gates were obviously much less affected by their emotions because they were on a mission.

They did not look as scared as snakes and scorpions when they saw Chen Dong and the four of them.


A scouting patrol, riding on war horses, was hurrying along the main street of the western city towards the western city gate ……
