Chapter 1677: Orders Issued
Su Mo sat in the wooden house and cultivated silently. He did not know that the infinite number of murderous intents had already begun to intertwine in a frenzy, entangling him.
Su Mo did not cultivate for long. After just over an hour, Ren Tianya summoned people to go to the General Quarters.
Su Mo understood. It seemed that the news had been investigated clearly and that there was going to be war.
Immediately after, he ended his cultivation and together with Platoon Leader Ren Tianya, Generals of the Black Cloud Army and Red Dragon Camp, they headed towards the General Quarters once again.
The General Quarters was the one in the Main Hall, where the public would gather together. General Zhu Long and Second Princess were there.
“Everyone, according to reliable news, we have already investigated the places that have been invaded by the Blood Pupil City, such as the city, moat and mine!”
General Zhu Long’s eyes were electric as he surveyed the crowd. He continued, “The force of the Blood Pupil Clan is extremely powerful. It seems that they want to completely invade everywhere.”
“General Zhu, what is the strength of the forces of the Blood Pupil Clan in these places?” Commander Jin Tai asked.
“In all places, there are more than two thousand people in each force of the Blood Pupil Clan. Furthermore, there are many Martial Honoured Realm warriors!” Zhu Long said.
“Are there any high-level Martial Honoured Realm experts?” someone asked.
“No, there are only low-level and middle-level Martial Honoured Realm warriors!” Zhu Long shook his head.
When the crowd heard this, they were relieved. It would be easy to take back these places.
“I have already discussed this with Second Princess. We will send people to the seventeen paths and reclaim all these places!” Zhu Long said in a clear voice.
“We must lose no time, let’s go now!”
Everyone spoke up and they were enthusiastic. It was not going to be a problem reclaiming the places that had great Elites of the Blood Pupil Clan standing guard.
Su Mo frowned, he was somewhat speechless. Did these people not have brains?
“General Zhu, Second Princess, I have something to say!” Su Mo said in a clear voice.
Everyone turned their heads and their eyes fell on Su Mo.
The eyes of Jin Lu, Zhu Tong, Zhu Ying and the rest flashed slightly. What was did Su Mo want?
They already had their own plan, what if Su Mo was going to ruin it with his own?
“Su Mo, speak your mind!” said the Second Princess.
Su Mo nodded and said loudly, “The Black Pupil Clan knows that we will come forth and bring reinforcements. Those troops that had originally surrounded Black Mountain Fort have retreated. Has anyone thought of why the troops of the dozen places that have been conquered by them have not retreated?”
Su Mo’s eyes flashed like electricity as he surveyed the crowd. He continued, “Won’t the Black Pupil Clan think about us reclaiming these places that have been conquered? Are their troops staying there for us to kill them?”
Su Mo’s voice rang in the crowd’s ears, causing everyone to frown.
Indeed, this was a problem. Surely the Black Pupil Clan was not so foolish?
Even if they wanted to completely conquer these places, they would not arrange for such military strength!
“Second Princess, General Zhu, what do you think?” Su Mo’s gaze fell on the Second Princess and General Zhu.
Su Mo had Long thought about this. This was en extremely obvious problem. Any slip-up and they would be wrecked by the Blood Pupil Clan.
If troops were recklessly sent to reclaim these places, the Black Pupil Clan might Attack them.
“Su Mo, we have a counter for this!” said Second Princess. She had already thought about this issue.
“Is it Su Mo? You’re overthinking!”
“General Zhu Long smiled slightly. He said, “Now, within a few million miles of the fort, all the armies of the Blood Pupil Clan will be within our sight. They have already withdrawn from the Holy Dynasty territory. The Blood Pupil Clan troops who have occupied our areas are trapped!”
Everyone nodded. It seemed that General Zhu Long had his own plans and was not too worried.
Moreover, they were all Elites. Even if there were in Black Mountain Fort, they would be able to cover hundreds of thousands of miles with a sweep of their spiritual senses.
There would be no problem if there were no Generals of the Blood Pupil Clan.
“General Zhu, have the troops of the Blood Pupil Clan really retreated? Has this news been verified by the spies?” Su Mo asked once again. He still felt that there was something wrong.
It did not make sense for the Blood Pupil Clan to leave two thousand people behind in each conquered area after the troops had left.
“The troops of the Blood Pupil Clan have already left to the territory of the other side of Black Mountain Fort. We will constantly monitor the situation there!” said General Zhu Long.
Black Mountain was thousands of miles in front of the Fort. This mountain was the border between the Imperial Ancestor Faction and the Blood Pupil Clan.
The territory of the Imperial Ancestor Court was in the Black Mountain and the Black Mountain was the territory of the Blood Pupil Clan.
General Zhu Long looked at Su Mo. There was a trace of indelible light in the pupils of his eyes. Zhu Ying and Zhu Tong had already found them. He naturally needed help.
What he did not expect was that Su Mo was actually prudent.
Su Mo nodded. Since Zhu Long already had arrangements, there was nothing to say.
However, he still felt that there was something wrong. Yet, he could not put his finger on it.
“Princess, this matter needs immediate attention. How about we arrange for people to go to the seventeen places that have been conquered?” Zhu Long looked at Second Princess.
“Yes. General Zhu Long, how would you like to delegate manpower?” nodded Second Princess. She was here to send reinforcements. Everything was under Zhu Long’s lead.
“I feel that we should send people to all the seventeen places and claim all of these places back!”
Zhu Long’s face darkened as he continued, “The people brought by both you and me will amount to three thousand in each place and led by a high-level Martial Honoured warrior. What do you think?”
“No problem!” Second Princess nodded. There would be enough strength with a high-level Martial Honoured warrior leading a group of middle-level Martial Honoured warriors.
“Alright, I’ll delegate the tasks then!”
Zhu Long said in a deep voice. A Jade Slip appeared in his hands and he immediately checked it.
The situation of the Generals of the Black Cloud Army and the Red Dragon Camp were recorded in the Jade Slip. Second Princess had previously given this to Zhu Long.
After a while, Zhu Long rose up as his eyes flashed like lightning. He surveyed the surroundings and said in a loud, clear voice. “Kong Kun, Ji Yun, Li Hai, listen up! I order you three to lead your respective subordinates to White Yan City and exterminate the two thousand Blood Pupil Clan members!”
The three immediately rose and cupped their fists towards Zhu Long. Immediately after they turned around and left the main hall.
Among the three, one was the General of the Black Mountain Fort, another was the General of Black Cloud Army and the last was the squadron leader of the Red Dragon Camp.
There were more than three thousand people under these three men, which included the defending army, supplemented by the Black Cloud Army and Red Dragon Camp.
“Jin Lu, Zhang Yue, Meng Yunyi, I order you three to lead your respective teams to go towards Qiu Ta City and kill the Blood Pupil Clan stationed there!”
Similarly, these three people were made up of one defending general, a Black Cloud Army general and a squadron leader of the Red Dragon Camp.
And among each batch of the three generals, there was one high-level Martial Honoured warrior.
In the first batch, the Black Cloud Army General was of Level 7 Martial Honoured Realm Cultivation and in the second, the defending general was also of Level 7 Martial Honoured Realm Cultivation.
“OK!” Jin Lu and the other two rose and cupped their fists. They immediately strode away and went to their camp to gather their people.
Before Jin Lu walked out of the main hall, he unintentionally caught a glimpse of Su Mo and his eyes flashed with a hint of coldness.
“Cheng Guang, Jian Jun, Luo Jianqing…!”
“Qiu Yifeng, Cao Yu, Qiao Fei…!”
General Zhu Long continued to shout orders one by one. Batch by batch, generals were summoned and led their troops out of the main hall.
This time, those who were dispatched were basically masters. As for Second Princess, Jin Tai, Ren Tianya and the rest, they naturally would not personally go out and only had to sit in the Fort.
Orders streamed endlessly. After a while, it was finally Su Mo’s turn.
“Huo Yi, Zhu Tong, Zu Mo, I order you three to lead your respective troops to Dark Moutain Iron Mine and kill the Blood Pupil Clan there!” Zhu Long’s voice rang.
Hearing this, Su Mo’s eyes instantly flashed. Both he and Zhu Tong were actually grouped together!
