Chapter 364: Assemble the Army and Charge Toward the Imperial City!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Ye Chen was incomparably furious.
His gaze was ice-cold as he stood up.
Liu Xi was already a corpse, so even if he used the eternal spring recovery spell, it was already useless to him.
Everyone in the surroundings was incomparably shocked.
They did not expect that Liu Xi was already a dead person and could still drag his corpse here.
How much faith and perseverance did he need to do this?
No, this was no longer faith, this was an obsession!
He had always kept this kind of obsession, so he came here step by step.
Then, when they heard the news of the Emperor’s death and Ji Xuan’s succession, they were also extremely shocked.
If Ji Xuan succeeded to the throne, then did they still have a chance of winning?
Ye Chen slowly walked up to Liu Xi and closed his eyes.
Ye Chen looked at Liu Xi and said calmly, “Eunuch Liu, you’ve done well. Rest in peace!”
At this moment, Ye Chen’s face was gloomy.
He did not say a word.
Ye Chen was silent and did not say anything.
There was a chill on his cold face.
Zhao Xiyao and Murong Qingxue stood at the side and looked at their little junior brother in silence.
They knew that little junior brother had never shown such an expression before.
Now that little junior brother showed such an expression, it seemed that he was really angry!
At this moment, Ye Chen’s cold gaze was seen and he said coldly, “Very good, Ji Xuan. At first, I didn’t think there was any need for this Emperor. Whether it’s me or not, it doesn’t matter.
“But now, I must become the Emperor of the Eastern Imperial Kingdom!
“Yang Xuan, gather the Great Army and follow me into the Imperial Palace!” Ye Chen sternly commanded.
The moment these words were spoken, everyone looked at Ye Chen with determination.
They had spent so much time with Ye Chen, and they understood that Ye Chen would definitely be a very good ruler.
Everyone immediately nodded.
“I’m willing to die for Your Highness!”
At this moment, a spy came to report.
“Reporting to Your Highness, General Zhang Mo of Inkhorn City has brought 10,000 troops!”
Zhang Mo, the City Lord of Inkhorn City, should be one of the Emperor’s trusted aides.
“Your Highness, the City Lord of Moshuang City, Luo Shuihan, has brought 10,000 troops!”
Hearing this, Ye Chen was shocked.
Luo Shuihan was one of the generals who resisted the demi-humans back then.
He did not expect him to be here.
At this moment, the two City Lords immediately came to Ye Chen.
“Zhang Mo, Luo Shuihan, here to report, greetings, Your Highness!”
The person who met Luo Shuihan was not Ye Chen, but Ye Gu Cheng of the Heavenly Demon Sect. Ye Chen did not use his identity as Ye Chen for the sake of convenience.
Therefore, Luo Shuihan did not know that Ye Gu Cheng was Ye Chen.
Although Luo Shuihan felt a familiar aura when he saw Ye Chen, he was sure that this was the first time he had met Ye Chen.
The two of them kneeled in front of Ye Chen.
“Your Highness, we heard that you were in danger in the Heavenly South City, so we rushed here. We didn’t expect that you had already pacified the Heavenly South City.”
At this moment, Ye Chen said, “My father…has already passed away. Now, Ji Xuan has already succeeded the throne!”
As the sound of his voice rang out.
Both Zhang Mo and Luo Shuihan stared at Ye Chen in shock.
They did not dare to believe it.
They were all speechless and fell silent.
Instantly, the two of them had grim expressions on their faces.
Back then, the Emperor, Ji Wentian, personally led the troops and led them to defend against the attacks of the demon race.
At that time, their relationship with the Emperor, Ji Wentian, was something they fought for on the battlefield.
His Majesty was also heavily injured because of this.
But they did not expect that His Majesty would actually…be killed by that brat Ji Xuan.
Both Zhang Mo and Luo Shuihan did not dare to believe what Ye Chen said.
After a long time, Luo Shuihan finally spoke, “Your Highness, His Majesty was really…usurped by that brat Ji Xuan?”
Ye Chen also had a gloomy expression on his face. He nodded and said, “Yes, Liu Xi risked his life to come here and tell me.”
“Ji Xuan, you father-murdering, heartless thing. We will definitely make you pay with blood!” Luo Shuihan said sternly.
“Your Highness, then you…” Luo Shuihan looked at Ye Chen.
Ye Chen said coldly, “This throne was originally mine. Since Ji Xuan has stolen it, then we will take it back.
“No, not only will we take it back…I will also make him pay a thousand times over!”
After Ye Chen finished speaking, the two generals looked at Ye Chen in astonishment.
They had not expected that Prince Ye Chen would actually be so courageous.
At this moment, the two generals immediately said, “Your Highness, we are willing to follow Your Highness and die for Your Highness!”
The two generals immediately knelt down.
Ye Chen immediately picked up the two generals.
“Generals, please rise.”
Ye Chen looked at the two generals and said, “Since that’s the case, then please help me take back the throne!”
“We are willing to go through fire and water for Your Highness!” The two generals immediately said.
Ye Chen looked at Yang Xuan, Zhang Mo, and Luo Shuihan.
This way, he had three generals to lead.
Ye Chen said sternly, “Yang Xuan, Zhang Mo, and Luo Shuihan!”
“Each of you will lead 200 thousand troops and follow me to kill everyone in the Imperial Palace!”
“Yes!” The three generals immediately said.
As they said that, Ye Chen and the others started to charge toward the Imperial Palace.
Ye Chen had subdued 100 thousand troops. Zhang Mo and Luo Shuihan did not lead 10 thousand troops. Together with Yang Xuan’s 50 thousand troops, they had a total of 170 thousand troops.
Zhang Mo and Luo Shuihan had no one to lead 60,000 soldiers, while Yang Xuan led 50,000 soldiers.
They charged toward the Imperial City.
Right now, they were in Heavenly South City, two cities away from the Imperial Palace.
Yuxue City and Tianli City.
At this moment, Zhao Tianxing, the general of the Imperial Palace, led 100,000 soldiers and charged toward Ye Chen.
Moreover, Ji Xuan also gave the order to mobilize all the great generals guarding the borders, preparing to annihilate Ye Chen in one fell swoop.
Right now, the soldiers that Ye Chen and the others were leading were only private soldiers. The soldiers guarding the borders were the main military force of the Eastern Imperial Palace.
In the south, at the border between the Eastern Imperial Kingdom and the Nanxuan Kingdom, there were 500,000-strong army guarding.
In the west, at the border between the demi-humans and humans, there were a total of a million-strong army guarding.
Now, the Emperor had passed away. Ji Xuan had sent all of them back to pay their respects, also to prepare for the next step.
Even if Ye Chen arrived at the Imperial City alive, as long as half of the soldiers at the border returned, there would still be hundreds of thousands of soldiers.
Ji Xuan did not believe that his so many soldiers would not be able to suppress Ye Chen.
He had already sat on the throne.
However, if Ye Chen did not die, he would not be able to sit firmly on the throne.
Therefore, no matter what price he had to pay, even if it was the soldiers who had retreated back to the border, he had to stop Ye Chen and kill him.
Ye Chen led everyone and charged toward the city.
They walked all the way toward the Eastern Imperial Kingdom. In a day’s time, they had arrived.
Within the city, the city gates were tightly shut, as if they did not welcome Ye Chen and the others into the city. This also meant that the City Lord had already come to seek refuge with Ji Xuan.
Ye Chen led his army and arrived at the city gates.
