Chapter 908: An Intense Battle (2)
Zhai Xing Lou’s counterattack begun from that day on.
Yan Luo Dian’s multiple attempts at ambush were all thwarted by Zhai Xing Lou, and they suffered heavy losses. Following that, Yan Luo Dian secretly sent a messenger to seek Ji Fengyan at the Heavenly Courts.
“Great queen, my city lord said that the time has come for Heavenly Courts to make their move.” The messenger was that very leader who was here previously. Just that he now looked more haggard and sported an additional scar across his face.
The consecutive days of attack weighed heavily on the leader’s heart. More than half of the few dozen brothers whom he had visited Heavenly Courts with earlier, had died. The leader hated Zhai Xing Lou to the core and wished to fight to the death with that city.
“So fast?” Ji Fengyan was astounded.
Yan Luo Dian and Zhai Xing Lou’s powers were on par. It should have taken at least a few months to see who would be emerging as victor. According to Ji Fengyan’s earlier estimations, Yan Luo Dian should have been able to sustain the battle for about a month. That would be the best time for her to mobilize her troops.
But, the actual period was half a month faster than her predictions.
The leader gave a bitter smile. “We had not expected things to escalate so quickly either. Zhai Xing Lou suddenly rallied so strongly and their battle power has increased several fold. Moreover, it seems like they are now one step ahead of all our careful planning. They have thwarted many of our attacks.”
At the beginning, Yan Luo Dian had carried out their battle plans smoothly. No one expected Zhai Xing Lou to have adjusted so quickly.
“The plans of your city lord were revealed?” Ji Fengyan raised her brows. From the legends she had heard of Chi Tong, he was a master at military strategy. The probability of an opponent one-upping him was very low.
The leader nodded. “Zhai Xing Lou’s second young master recently joined the battle. He holds keen observation skills and is also very adept at military strategies. He planned several ambushes which had impacted us greatly. Our city lord has been engaged in a battle of wits with him the past few days. It would be a challenge to advance any further if this continues.”
The leader felt frustrated. Who knew that Zhai Xing Lou would have such a talented man such as Gong Zhiyu.
Ji Fengyan gave an involuntarily startle.
Gong Zhiyu rarely stayed inside the Free Valley, hence Yan Luo Dian didn’t know much of him. They had no idea what he had been doing outside all those years. Gong Zhiyu’s role as the leader in this battle had shocked everyone and led to much suffering for Yan Luo Dian.
“Great queen, would you please mobilize your troops? If this goes on, Yan Luo Dian’s powers will be significantly reduced. The moment Zhai Xing Lou gains the upper hand, it would spell disaster for both Yan Luo Dian and Heavenly Courts.” The leader couldn’t help feeling anxious as long as he had not gotten Ji Fengyan’s assent.
Ji Fengyan narrowed her eyes. “Don’t worry. I will make the necessary arrangements. Everything will be ready by tomorrow.”
The leader widened his eyes in relief and offered his profuse gratitude.
“That’s good. Our city lord has already sent forth a battle notice to Zhai Xing Lou, to commence the final and deciding battle three days later at the center of the Free Valley. That would be the best time for Her Majesty to make your move.”
Ji Fengyan nodded and had the leader take his leave. Thereafter, she immediately summoned Meng Fusheng and Linghe, instructing them to mobilize everyone in the city.
