Realizing This Is A Wuxia World After Cultivating For 300 Years

Chapter 128 - Chanyu: The Advantage is Mine!

can only fight to the death. Only by guarding this city can we have a chance of survival!”

He was originally a soldier as well.

He knew very well the importance of Yunshu County.

This was the northern gate of Fengzhou. Without Yunshu County, the barbarians from the north could enter at any time and plunder the lands.

The entire Fengzhou would become defenseless.

28 years ago, Meng Zhang followed the Northern Garrison General, Chen Pengju, to attack the barbarians in the north and reclaim Yunshu County that had fallen into the hands of the barbarians. Only then did they completely restore the entire Fengzhou.

Before that, although Fengzhou was considered the territory of the Great Jin in name, it had long become the backyard of the barbarians in the north. They could enter and leave as they pleased and trample through the entire territory.

Moreover, Yunshu County had a ranch used to raise horses that could block massive armies.

Only with Yunshu County can Fengzhou be considered the Great Jins Fengzhou. Without Yunshu County, Fengzhou was just a little girl who could be violated by the barbarians at any time.

Yunshu County could not be lost again!

At this moment, Hui Shi and Chen Tong walked over, but they did not disturb Meng Zhangs training. Instead, they waited quietly at the side.

After Meng Zhang finished his round of training, he came to the two of them and cupped his hands. He asked, “My Lords, hows the situation outside the city?”

Initially he was a little dissatisfied with these two officers from Changfeng Prefecture.

However, after getting along with them, he realized that both of them were dedicated to the common people, so he became harmonious with them.

In particular, Meng Zhang realized that Hui Shis eyebrows were extremely similar to Chen Pengjus.

This made him feel much closer to Hui Shi.

There was basically no conflict.

Hui Shi said in a low voice, “There are often barbarian sentries patrolling outside the city. They should be checking on the situation of our city defense. Occasionally, theyll shoot arrows at the city walls or send letters in to stir up trouble.”

Chen Tong nodded and said solemnly, “In the past two days, most of the rumors fabricated by them is that the Emperor of the Great Jin has already issued an edict to cede Fengzhou to their commander, Chanyu.

Although this matter is extremely unbelievable, it has already spread throughout the army and the commoners. Governor Meng, please pay more attention and dont let the soldiers and commoners be bewitched.”

Only a fool would give up a states land to the nomadic barbarians for no reason.

No one in Yunshu County believed it.

“The person who spread this news deserves to be killed!” Meng Zhangs expression was extremely gloomy. Such a psychological attack was not something that those barbarians would do. Could it be that someone was secretly guiding them?

However, in the face of such means, he could only curse. It was difficult to take effective measures. He quickly calmed down and asked, “Commander Chen, has Lord Overseers reply arrived?”

“Not yet.” Chen-Tong shook his head. “But, according to the timing, Lord Overseers reply should be on its way by now.”

“Thats good…” Meng Zhang nodded at first, then thought for a moment and couldnt help but say,” Commander Chen, theres something I cant help but want to say.

“Now that the situation in Yunshu County is urgent and we lack soldiers, we should start recruiting troops as soon as possible. Only then will we have a stronger chance of defending the city and not rely on these 8,000 foot soldiers.

“Thats right. We dont have the authority to recruit troops ourselves. According to the procedures, we need to gain permission from the State Overseer first. But now that the troops are at the city gates, we dont have that much time.”

His meaning was very simple. A General should not accept the orders of an Emperor. They should not care about the process now and should just start the recruitment directly.

“No. If it were any other State Overseer, you wouldnt be wrong to do this.” Chen Tong shook his head and said, “But its different under Lord Overseer Cui. As long as we can get a reply from him, well definitely win this battle.”

“Lord Overseer has great divine powers. As long as he sends us even a piece of paper, we can destroy the barbarian army with a flick of our fingers,” Hui Shi explained.

“…” Meng Zhang fell silent when he heard this. He thought of some rumors about the Fengzhou Governor, Cui Heng, and frowned. “Theres no Giant River here. Theres no way to drown the army with water.”

Like most people, he believed that Cui Heng had relied on the advantage of the terrain and the power of the Giant River to defeat the army that was several times the size of his own.

As for great divine powers?

Since ancient times, no one had ever heard of any Mystical Powers powerful enough to defeat an army of hundreds of thousands.

It was impossible to believe.

“I dont think well receive a reply from Lord Overseer,” Hui Shi suddenly said.

These words immediately shocked Chen Tong.

What did that mean?!

He was about to ask when he saw Hui Shi bowing respectfully to the sky. “Welcome, Lord Overseer!” Hui Shi bowed to the sky respectfully.

The dragon runes on his back had sensed a familiar aura. This meant that Cui Heng had come and had no intention of hiding his whereabouts.

Chen Tong hurriedly looked up.

He saw a figure slowly floating over from the horizon.

Hence, he hurriedly bowed as well and exclaimed, “Welcome, Lord Overseer!”

“F-flying here?!” Meng Zhang looked at Cui Heng in shock.

To most people, such a method of riding the clouds was already considered the means of an Immortal.

Many citizens and soldiers in the city also saw Cui Heng descend from the sky on a cloud. Their hearts were instantly filled with endless joy.

When the barbarians were about to attack the city, an Immortal suddenly appeared.

This was simply like a light appearing in the dark night.

The originally anxious citizens immediately felt much safer.

At this moment, no matter what they were doing, they all knelt on the ground and kowtowed to Cui Heng.

Streaks of red and white light that only Cui Heng could see slowly floated into the sky.
