How to Survive as a Villain - 150
Chapter 150: Learn More About The News Of Someone’s Death.
The next day, Xiao YuAn woke up early in the morning, since he wanted to look at Yan HeQing’s battlefield appearance from a distance and feel how strong he was. However, who would’ve thought that they would set out when the stars and the moon were still out in the night sky. So in the end, Xiao YuAn couldn’t bid him farewell and had to return to his tent feeling a bit unhappy.
In the next few days, Xiao YuAn treated the soldier’s wounds as per usual, looking the same as always.
However, Deputy General Chen had something to say.
A lot to say!
Deputy General Chen hesitated to say it, but in the end, he couldn’t help but stammer: “Physician Xiao, what’s this? I have a wound on my right shoulder, so why are you putting medicine on my arm?”
Xiao YuAn calmly and unhurriedly applied medicine to his shoulder, only to say next: “The medicine can be used in many ways. It can be applied to the shoulder ten times, and be delivered to the arm once.”
Chen Ge: “Physician Xiao don’t worry, His Majesty will be back soon.”
Xiao YuAn chuckled. “I’m not worried.”
‘Yan HeQing has the aura of the Male Lead, so what should I be worried about?’
Chen Ge grimaced: “Physician Xiao, my right shoulder is the injured one, not the left shoulder, and yet you’re still saying that you’re not worried. You’ve been restless the past few days, you-…”
Before he could finish saying what he wanted to say, Xiao YuAn took some medicine and pressed it on Deputy General Chen’s wound. Instantly, a miserable howl came out of his throat and his next words were immediately blocked.
Suddenly, from outside the tent, a young soldier lifted the curtain and screamed: “Is Deputy General Chen here?! General Huang is urgently requesting his presence!!!”
“What happened?!” Chen Ge stood up in a hurry. The young soldier’s face was extremely pale, and his forehead was full dripping with sweat as he rushed towards Chen Ge. Then he leaned over to his ear, and whispered a few words. Meanwhile, Xiao YuAn, who was cleaning the medicine jar, vaguely heard the words ‘His Majesty’ and ‘front line’. At this, he couldn’t help but raise his head to look at Chen Ge, only to see his face suddenly turning blue!
“How could this happen?!” Chen Ge stood up abruptly. He was so shocked that he didn’t even pay attention to Xiao YuAn as he quickly followed the young soldier.
Chen Ge, with his upper body naked and his shoulders wrapped with cloth stained with blood, rushed towards General Huang Yue’s tent, where several Generals and Deputy Generals were still present. At that moment, Chen Ge ignored the proper etiquette and shouted in a trembling voice: “What happened?! What do you mean that the elite troops were ambushed by the enemy and the Emperor was killed? Where did you get this information from? Lying about military information without any confirmation is a huge crime!”
Huang Yue’s face was also extremely distorted as he scolded Chen Ge: “Deputy General Chen! I called you over here but I didn’t summon you to yell! Calm down!!”
Chen Ge was still very agitated as he waved his arms and began shouting again: “How can I calm down?! What do you mean His Majesty has died? Where on earth did this news come from?!”
Next to him, the other Generals came forward and patted Chen Ge’s shoulder, trying to calm him down. Then, they explained the situation with a sullen face.
It turned out that Yan HeQing, who led a small elite team, originally wanted to launch a sneak attack on the defeated soldiers of the Eastern Wu Kingdom. However, who would’ve thought that the enemy’s arrival to that Eastern Wu town was in fact a trap! Everything was done to make the Southern Yan Kingdom ease their vigilance, but because Yan HeQing was extremely cautious, this trap shouldn’t have been a problem for him. But in reality, the enemy seemed to know everything about their tactics, managing to ambush Yan HeQing early on the road he must’ve traveled on. The elite team, which was supposed to sneakily attack the Easter Wu soldiers, had entered the enemy’s encirclement and was immediately surrounded by 100,000 elite enemy soldiers!
After hearing this, Chen Ge’s body trembled and he didn’t know what to do. He had to take several deep breaths before he could recover from the shock: “Why don’t we send troops to support them?’
Huang Yue shook his head: “It’s too late, the only soldier who could escape death said that he saw with his own eyes how the Emperor, in a desperate attempt to escape, fell off the cliff. He’s… already…” Huang Yue sighed heavily and then continued: “The Emperor has been ambushed by the enemy, so sending troops right now would be a careless move, and it will cause unnecessary casualties.”
The several Generals and Deputy Generals present at the moment took a long breath, everyone showing expressions of shock, grief and indignation.
At one moment, a General began to curse with an extremely angry face: “There’s a spy in our barracks!”
“A traitor? A spy?” Chen Ge asked incredulously.
Huang Yue clenched his teeth and tightened his jaw for a long time before saying: “I should’ve done it earlier… Hey, you don’t need to worry, I already know who the spy is, and I won’t let him go. Please appease your mood first, we still have a few vicious battles to fight ahead of us. You must not feel dejected. The most important thing right now, is to think about how to stabilize the military situation and appease the morale of the army. I’ll inform General Xue about this and I’ll ask him how to deal with the Emperor’s affairs before making any decisions.”
