Breaking The Battle Array (Part 3)
She? What could she help with?! She did not overestimate her own capabilities by thinking that she could break the battle arrays and attack the enemy. Facing a disdain snort, or skeptical, or gloomy eyes, Murong Shu Qing forced a smile and said: “I do not know what I can help with?!”
Shang Jun held back her smile and said: “As long as you are willing to lend some people!” Qing’s subordinates were many capable bodyguards. That Cang Su from this early morning, was a rare talent who could break the battle array, as long as Qing was willing to lend him, they could have some hopes to break the battle arrays.
Murong Shu Qing had already guessed, that Jun’s so called asking for a favor, would not make her go to break the battle array on her own, but borrowing some people…, Murong Shu Qing slightly lowered her head, she unhurriedly and softly pushed the tea leaves aside. For a long time, she only then softly said: “Military Adviser Pei, please repeat the discussion you were talking about earlier again, I did not hear it clearly.”
Her mind was not listening to the discussion a moment ago, so she had not seriously listened to what Jun said, she knew that Yan Yu and Cang Su were like block-headed people. As long as she ordered them, even if they knew that they would die, they would go without even wrinkling their eyebrows. So she must know the fierce and dangerous situation in trying to break the battle arrays, and could not disregard their lives like this.
Shang Jun already anticipated that Murong Shu Qing would ask like this, she was a person who would consider things thoroughly, and consider other people’s feelings, especially those people who were by her side. So she empathized with Pei Che who had a
mission on trying to explain this to her, after all, she was a wounded person now, so she could not talk too much.
Pei Che laughingly looked at Shang Jun, and he was sitting motionless as a mountain and looking back at him, Murong Shu Qing was also staring to look at him. Shang Jun was the one who thought about this scheme, why did he have to give an explanation?! Sighing, Pei Che still obediently explained, Shang Jun added some additional explanations from time to time, so all of those Generals understood the explanation clearer.
Listening to them finished speaking, Murong Shu Qing thought for a moment and asked: “You said that you wanted to look for three people who are good at strange gate number method (qi men shu shu), three people who have firm determinations, and three people who are proficient in traps and concealed weapons?!”
Murong Shu Qing shook her head, and answered: “I am afraid that I can not find that many people!” They looked at her as if she was a grand hero in this world here ah!!
Shang Jun gave Murong Shu Qing a somewhat calm and patient expression, she said: “The Manor can find a person who is good in the battle array, a person who is good in the traps. I see that General Huang is also a firmed and determined person, there are two subordinates from Xiu Zhi who are not bad, plus me, I only need you to find three more people, that will be fine.”
Shang Jun’s words had just left out, and without waiting for Shu Qing’s words, Li Ming actually cried out in resentment and stood up, he said: “Can I not join in breaking the battle arrays?!” Huang Xi Feng could but why could he not do it, even though he was not a master in the traps and battle arrays, but
but he was also a firmed and determined person!
“You have another arrangement.” Li Ming’s sudden jumped, but under Xuanyuan Yi’s muffled words, he became quiet in an instant, lowered his head, and did not dare to say anything.
After a short period of time, everyone’s attention turned back to Murong Shu Qing, waiting for her answer, but Murong Shu Qing was actually just sitting and she did not say anything. Her elegant eyebrows were softly wrinkled, she already put the teacup on the table, grasped the wooden chair armrests, and softly tapped them, she seemed to be absent-minded, and seemed to have jittery mood. Everyone was waiting for a long time, only then Murong Shu Qing lifted her head up to answer, but what she said, was not about the candidates (who would help break the battle arrays), but she rather asked Shang Jun: “Do you still want to enter the battle arrays?”
Shang Jun nodded her head, and firmly looked face to face at Shu Qing, she said: “How can I not enter it if I want to deploy the method to break the battle arrays?” If she did not enter it, how could she give any confidence to everyone to break the battle arrays. Moreover, she suffered an injury last time, she wanted to properly think on how to teach that man this time. Besides, her injury was not too serious that she could not move, plus there were still seven days, she must break the chains of these battle arrays.
How was this person so stubborn like this, she was completely injured like this, how could she enter the battle array and throw away her own life?! Both of them were glaring at each other, with neither giving way to the other for a long time. Murong Shu Qing’s hands were slightly holding on the (armrests) firmly, taking a deep breath, she pushed
she pushed down the anger in her heart with great difficulty, and faintly answered: “Let me think this over for a moment to see who is more suitable.”
Murong Shu Qing did not promise if she would lend some people, after she finished speaking, she did not look at them anymore, and only narrowed her eyes to look at the white plum tree that was outside the tent, as if she wanted to distant herself with those people, and did not say anything again. Even Shang Jun was somewhat startled, what was wrong with Qing?!
Murong Shu Qing was unwilling to talk and just looking outside the window, Shang Jun was looking pensive and bowing his head without talking, so Xuanyuan Yi was closely staring at Murong Shu Qing, it seemed that she did not want to continue discussing (the topic) anymore. Pei Che stoop up and smoothed things over: “Alright, Master Shang, you can carefully study a specific method on how to break the battle arrays, while we are waiting for the confirmed people who will break them, we will discuss this again tomorrow.”
Shang Jun sighed and slowly stoop up, she cupped her hands to salute and answered: “Then, Shang Jun takes my leave.” Finished speaking, she looked one glance at Murong Shu Qing who also got up but was not looking at her. Shang Jun turned around and came out of the Master’s tent. It seemed that Qing had the most undertaking. It had been a long time since she saw her get angry like this.
Murong Shu Qing did not even exchange conventional greetings and immediately came out of the Master’s tent.
Everyone also left the Master’s tent, leaving only Pei Che and Xuanyuan Yi. Xuanyuan Yi walked to the place where Shang Jun was sitting, and lifted open the lid that covered the cup. He only saw that the hot tea that should be that should be a light yellow color, changed into a dark brown, moreover, it emitted a faint smell of the reeking blood. Xuanyuan Yi and Pei Che looked one glance at each other, and smilingly said: “It seemed that entering and checking up the battle arrays last night, were not that smooth.”
Xuanyuan also discovered it?! He thought that he only engrossed in looking at Murong Shu Qing! He smilingly nodded his head, but he did not understand something, so he immediately asked again: “But why did he want to hide the fact that he was injured?” Getting injured during a check up, was a normal thing, Shang Jun did not look like he wanted to be famous, or he was afraid that people would tease and mock fun of him, so what was the reason that he hid his injury?!
Xuanyuan Yi sat at the chair that Murong Shu Qing sat down, and he could see that white plum tree from here, and it surely had a distinctive style, no wonder that she liked to linger to look at it. Xuanyuan Yi was looking at the scenery outside the window, while he said this deep meaning words: “Moreover, Qing-er clearly knows about the injury.” It seemed that the relationships between Shang Jun and her, was not ordinary, otherwise, when she heard that he wanted to enter the battle arrays, she unexpectedly showed off her anger.
He received a family’s letter yesterday, mother said that there were many rumors about him and Qing-er at the Capital, the rumor said that their feelings towards each other were deep, also said that they appeared aloof, they completely uncalled for, why were there so many rumors suddenly? It seemed that there were people who were for them and against them at the Capital.
Qing-er, it seemed that we had so many things that we had to discuss between us.
