Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
The surrounding was instantly silent. After a long while, beads of sweat slowly appeared on his head. The first time he tried to act cool and this happens?
Just as he was feeling awkward at how those people weren’t giving him face. He heard sobbing noises, looking over in shock. He then saw Zong Gang, Hu Zhongyuan and the others seemed happy but also sad.
Even the surrounding soldiers, those black fox iron cavalry all looked over silently.
Zong Gang even looked up into the sky, his eyes filled with tears and mumbled, “So similar, really so similar! Ruler, did your spirit in heaven see they? The prince has inherited your splendor. Now, he is exactly like you in the past…”
The cold sweat on his face continued to seep out. So his Father, Gantian Mountain Monster king Zong Weiran was also so shameless in the past?
Looking closely at the others, Tan Tao was silent. Whilst a weird glow flashed in Li Luo’s face not knowing what he was thinking about. Anyways the gazes from him made his hair stand on their end. Was this fellow gay? You knew how one looked but not what they were deep down inside.
Keeping silent for a moment, Zong Yuan suddenly moved forwards with the horse. Although his expression was calm, his eyes were suppressing something,” East City major general Fang Xu has worked with Zong Hao for many years and acted as his deputy, someone he is close to. Wait a moment, and I’ll go take his head!”
After he spoke, he galloped forward. When he passed the cavalry in front, he casually took tens of steel spears and carried them on his back. Before leading the way towards the direction of the city gate.
When the mysterious armor wind dragon cavalry behind saw that, they immediately followed behind closely. Ever since the Ruohai Straits battle, these Xuan Mountain City cavalry’s recognition for him was even higher than Tan Tao.
At that moment, Zong Gang was hidden, wiping the tears from the corner of his eyes. He led his horse over, saying loudly, “Let’s help cover Zong Yuan. We must let those pieces of crap in the city witness the night of our black fox iron cavalry. These bunches of trash dare block us? They don’t know how to write the word death!”
Zong Shou was startled before he laughed out loud, following behind them. With Hu Zhongyuan and Li Luo protecting him, they continued forwards.
Zong Yuan’s horse was fast and in just tens of breaths, he arrived under the city gates. Then, he looked coldly at the front.
Since comprehending the maniac lightning spear sense, his senses could spread several miles. He could feel that the city wall was empty and the arrangements of the camps were mostly inwards towards the city.
However, the east city army seemed to have noticed something and was moving troops up the city wall to defend. East major general Fang Xu was also standing on the city wall.
Around him, there were only a few people. Just 500 archers and a thousand soldiers.
This was why Zong Yuan wasn’t in a hurry to rush up the city, quietly waiting for 7 thousand feet outside and coldly watching. It was this person. When his father died, it was he who was together with Zong hao on the battlefield.
Killing intent exploded in his heart, and he wanted to immediately act and kill him. However, after thinking about it he resisted.
Although he hated this person, he was under Zong Shou now. He couldn’t spoil matters because of his grievances. The prince has helped him a lot, and he had to think for him. He couldn’t follow his heart. Even if he killed Fang Xu, he had to do it properly.
Till today, he still remembered his mother’s final words. In this life, don’t yield to the heavens or the earth, don’t go against yourself!
Taking in a deep breath, Zong Yuan calmed himself down and fixed his eyes on Fang Xu.
“Is that east city major general Fang Xu? The prince has returned to the city and will arrive in a moment. Why aren’t you opening the gates?”
That Fang Xu was around 40. His body was huge and slightly plumb. However with a black scale armor with thorns on his body, he looked like a mountain, exceptionally magnificent.
He was originally warily looking down and when he heard Zong Yuan speak he was stunned. A moment later he doubtfully asked, “you are Zong Yuan?”
The solo spear man under the city, dressed in blood cloud armor, even his face was blocked. If it wasn’t for the voice he wouldn’t recognize him.
His chest instantly exploded out with fury, but when he wanted to ask his men to act, he felt terrified, “Zhenshan Pass has You Wusheng defending it, so how did you all come over?”
Zong Yuan coldly smiled, raising his eyelids, “You Wusheng is a traitor! Not only did he rejected to open the gates but tried to betray the prince. 2 hours ago, we killed him. Fang Xu, are you also going to not open the gate?”
Fang Xu’s eyes constricted. The first thought in his mind was disbelief. The strength of that You Wusheng was half a level stronger than him. With 3 Xuanwu ancestors and the spiritual formation and also a Xue family Return to Sun realm spirit master, how could the pass be broken?
Did this Zong Yuan lead a million-strong army? Even then with the dangerous pass, it should last for more than 2-4 hours. There shouldn’t have been silence until now.
But looking at the blood on his body, as well as the horse hoove noises from far away, he couldn’t help but swallow his saliva.
He didn’t know what the fate of Zhenshan Pass was, but he knew that the achievements of Zong Yuan killing 4 Xuanwu ancestors was true.
Thoughts slightly changing, he decided not to go against him right away, shaking his head,” Zong Yuan my Brother Zong Hao has treated you well…”
Zong Yuan’s eyes didn’t have a single tremor, directly cutting him off, “Once this matter ends I’ll ask you about what happened during my father’s death 6 years ago!”
That Fang Xu’s eyes changed once more as his breathing became unstable. Until he saw the impatience in Zong Yuan’s eyes did he open his mouth, “The night is late. Based on the Gantian Mountain City rules even the prince needs to confirm his identity before he enters.”
Zong Yuan smiled in disdain, “Desperate times call for desperate measures! You know the situation within and you still want to test his identity? You’re dragging time and try to spread a message to Zong Shi and Zong Yang? Do you think I’m stupid and will let you do that? Traitor of the ruler, plotter of a scheme. I’ll kill you!”
Just as Fang Xu’s face turned green and white, Zong Yuan had already leaped into the air. He was like lightning as he charged towards the city walls.
His purple lightning spear directly pointed at the city wall, killing intent charging in the heavens. His aura was sharp.
In that instant, Fang Xu was threatened and instinctively backed off. The soldiers and archers on the city wall were the same. Suppressed by the maniac lightning spear sense, a portion of them couldn’t even raise their weapons.
“Maniac lightning spear sense, Zong Yuan comprehended it!”
Fang Xu was a Xuanwu ancestor, startled for a moment before coming back to his senses. there was like a wave within his chest, crashing and surging about.
Then, he grabbed his spear in his hand, gritting his teeth and hollering, “You all not awake?”
The shout was like a lion roar, causing everyone around who were terrified by the spear to awaken.
However, the other Xuanwu ancestor guarding the city wall silently moved back several steps.
It was the martial ancestors around Fang Xu who took out their weapons, blocking in front of Fang Xu, forming into a formation and defending.
However, in the next moment, Zong Yuan suddenly stretched behind, following which a spear with vast lightning instantly flashed forwards.
It was so fast that even Fang Xu couldn’t react. One spear nailed one person!
Fang Xu’s face was ashen white. Then, he saw those flying spears not stop. Along with many sharp whistles, one after another was hit.
Every hundred feet he ran, he would toss out one spear. Then, he flew up. Without the city protection formation blocking him, he was as fast as lightning. In an instant he was 300 feet high, a lightning glow spreading around him causing this area to be as bright as day.
In front of him, was a 5 meridian expert who was pierced through the chest. Then, the area expanded and in these tens of breaths many were killed on the spot. Martial ancestor realm experts couldn’t fight back.
In the next moment, he was already on the city wall. His cold eyes were like a hawk high above looking at his prey.
“Spear sense. It is the maniac lightning spear sense!”
At this moment, Fang Xu felt like he was about to collapse. A few days ago he was mocking those Yunxia Mountain Xuanwu ancestors. Was Zong Yuan, who was only 4 meridians, so scary? Just 1 person and they couldn’t stop him?
He found out that he was the joke instead.
At that moment, just now, it wasn’t that he couldn’t block the spear, but he knew that if he moved, there might be a weakness and those spears might aim for him and kill him.
His life was more important than others.
However, at this moment, facing the spear intent that Zong Yuan pointed over, Fang Xu only felt despair.
This time he was filled with hate! Blaming Zong Hao for not killing this bastard. If not this wouldn’t have happened.
Purple lightning spear intent, earth chakra 6 meridian, unparalleled famous general! Such an enemy was brought up by them. How ironic!
Unfortunately, such a talent wasn’t on their side.
In the next moment, Fang Xu roared out, finally unable to suppress the fear in his heart as he stabbed out.
No matter what, he was a Xuanwu ancestor!
This spear used all of his energy like it was piercing into the heavens as it stabbed forward.
A short moment later, he saw the sky covered in purple lightning hang over him, sword attacks intersecting. His eyes turned dark, pain spreading from his neck as he lost all senses.
After waving the purple lightning spear and piercing Fang Xu’s throat, Zong Yuan cutting off his head. Following which Zong Yuan looked at the other Xuanwu ancestor. He recognized that he was Fang Xu’s deputy known as Su Man. The ruler arranged him here to restrict Fang Xu. He retracted his killing intent pointing with the spear, “Will you surrender or not!”
