Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Yang Xuan hurriedly replied, “Your Highness, if we want to attack the Imperial Capital of Ji Xuan, we can only use our wits. We can not attack by force! Otherwise, our losses will definitely be huge!”
“Do you have any good ideas?” Ye Chen asked.
“Not at the moment!”
Ye Chen Thought for a moment and said, “Since that’s the case, then we’ll take a detour and feint the attack from the outside. All the Transcending Tribulation Realm experts will follow me and charge into the city.
“We’ll go straight for Ji Xuan’s head.”
“Your Highness, when are we going to attack?” Zhang Mo asked.
Ye Chen said indifferently, “Tomorrow, when my father’s funeral is held, will be the time for us to attack. Everyone, listen to my orders.”
At this moment, Elder Jian Ling immediately looked at Ye Chen.
“Your Highness, are you going to attack tomorrow as well?” Elder Jian Ling asked in surprise.
Ye Chen smiled and said, “Haha…sorry, I’ve been lying to everyone. Actually, I’m also a cultivator!”
At this moment, Ye Chen’s aura was released.
Everyone was shocked.
Everyone looked at Ye Chen in great shock.
They saw that Ye Chen’s body was emitting the aura of a Deva Realm cultivator!
At this moment, no matter who it was, they were all extremely shocked.
His Highness they had been protecting was actually a Deva Realm warrior.
Yang Xiao and the others were even more shocked.
He looked at Ye Chen with incomparable shock.
He had always thought that he was a prince who could not cultivate.
But he did not expect that his cultivation realm was the same as his and was actually a Deva Realm warrior.
Other than Ye Chen’s senior sisters, everyone looked at Ye Chen with incomparable shock.
Ye Chen said indifferently, “The reason why I’ve been hiding my cultivation is that I wanted to attract Ji Xuan to kill me. Actually, I could cultivate when I was young, but I’ve been hiding my cultivation!”
As Ye Chen spoke, he did not reveal his true cultivation state.
They might still believe him if he was in the Deva Realm.
If Ye Chen revealed the aura of the Transcending Tribulation Realm, then his identity would be completely exposed.
Right now, it was not the best time to reveal his identity.
Therefore, Ye Chen only said that he was in the Deva Realm.
Ye Chen said with a dignified gaze, “Yang Xuan, Zhang Mo, and Luo Shuihan!”
“Your subject is here!”
Immediately, the three of them said.
“Tomorrow, you will lead your armies and attack from three sides of the Eastern Imperial City. Try to divide their forces as much as possible,” Ye Chen said.
The three of them immediately agreed.
Then, Ye Chen looked at Elder Jian Ling and Grandmaster Jing Kong and said, “The two elders and masters will follow me into the city and attack Ji Xuan’s head. If we are fast, we shouldn’t lose too many soldiers!”
The two masters immediately nodded.
After the battle plan was made, they were ready to start the war tomorrow.
In the Imperial Palace.
The Minister of Law stepped forward and said, “Your Highness, if Ye Chen wants to attack tomorrow, do we still need to prepare for the funeral of the late Emperor?”
At this moment, Ji Xuan sneered and said, “Of course!”
“Although we only have 100,000 soldiers in the Eastern Imperial City, we can still defend the city from above. So, as long as we wait for the army guarding the border to arrive, they will be completely destroyed.”
“Therefore, at this time, they will definitely choose to charge into the Imperial City and assassinate me while we are holding the ceremony.
“Therefore, tomorrow’s ceremony is not just a funeral, but a bait to lure Ye Chen into taking the bait!” Ji Xuan said coldly.
Everyone was extremely shocked.
They looked at Ji Xuan. Although Ji Xuan was outstanding in all aspects, he had never been benevolent in his heart.
He even used his father’s funeral. Such a person would obviously become a tyrant in the future.
Also, those princes who had died before.
Although there was no evidence, many people in the court knew that it was definitely Ji Xuan who did it.
Only Ji Xuan would do that.
He killed his own brother.
He killed his own father.
Now, he used his father’s funeral to plot to kill his own brother.
Such a person was really too heartless.
However, now that the situation was set, they could only help Ji Xuan.
The next day.
Ye Chen led his army to the front of the Imperial City.
At this moment, soldiers were stationed on the Imperial City.
170,000 soldiers followed behind Ye Chen.
The two armies were facing off, and a great battle was about to break out.
There was nothing to say.
In the battle for the throne, the victor would be the king, and the loser would be the bandit!
Hence, they could only fight.
Ye Chen gave the order, “Kill!”
Ye Chen’s soldiers were incomparably excited as they charged forward.
The bitter battle was filled with corpses and rivers of blood.
“Soldiers, listen up. We have been forced into a dead end. We can only fight with our backs to the wall and defend the Imperial City. We have to defend the Emperor’s last hope!” Zhao Tianxing shouted loudly.
“Fight with our backs to the wall and defend the Imperial City!”
“Fight with our backs to the wall and defend the Imperial City!”
His voice resounded throughout the heavens and earth.
At this moment, Luo Shuihan had already arrived below the city walls.
The 60,000 strong army had arrived at the eastern city gates, and their auras were overwhelming. Although they did not say anything, as long as they stood there, it was enough to intimidate them.
Luo Shuihan sat on his warhorse and looked at the Emperor, shouting, “Kill!”
The yellow sand billowed, and the sound of drums filled the air.
Luo Shuihan and the others mounted their warhorses and stood in front of the Eastern Imperial City.
At this moment, the middle-ranked soldiers were already stationed neatly at the city gates. By the time the vanguard unit was fully assembled.
Luo Shuihan stood in front of the city and shouted in front of the vanguard unit, “Soldiers, listen to my command, follow me and kill!”
Instantly, Ye Chen’s soldiers charged out.
Zhao Tianxing stood on the city wall. At this moment, the sky was already starting to light up, and the light from the torches did not seem to be as bright. Looking down from the city wall.
Luo Shuihan’s army was already very close. From the looks of it, there was still some distance to go. Looking from afar, dust and smoke billowed, almost covering the entire horizon.
The army of the Eastern Imperial City stood on the city wall. Compared to the long line of dust and smoke in the distance, their 300,000 strong army was like a drop in the ocean.
At this moment, Ye Chen’s army stood in front of the formation like it was made of iron, and a huge flag fluttered in the wind.
In the twilight, Zhao Tianxing tried his best to look over, but he could not see it clearly in the flying dust. He could only vaguely see the cold lights of many swords and spears amidst the billowing dust, but they were like starlight mixed in with the twilight.
If they used this momentum to charge over now, even if the Eastern Imperial City waited for them to be exhausted, would they really be able to withstand that thunderous momentum?
Previously, they had already been defeated by Ye Chen and scattered in all directions. Now, would they really be able to withstand Ye Chen’s army?
Everyone felt uneasy in their hearts.
The sky was already bright. The light of dawn shone on Luo Shuihan’s long shadow. At this moment, he could be said to have the upper hand.. Even though they could only see his back view as he swung his spear, they could still feel the arrogance in his eyes.
