Chapter 670 - 670 Can't Be Unconvinced
670 Can’t Be Unconvinced
When night fell, the soldiers on guard on the city wall yawned non-stop. Some of them even squatted on the ground and fell asleep.
Suddenly, two soldiers sneaked up to take a look. When they saw that everyone was unconscious, they were completely relieved.
During dinner, they secretly added sleeping pills to the soup.
Originally, they wanted to add poison, but the strong poison took effect too quickly, and it was easy to expose themselves.
The slow poison was too slow, so they used sleeping pills. The effect was indeed very good.
So they quickly went down and opened the gate of the border city.
The city gate was opened, and a Ge Kingdom general rushed in with his men.
He first looked around and found that the city was very quiet, which meant that the guards were indeed unconscious.
Then, he picked up the torch and waved it at the door.
Following that, the sound of horse hooves could be heard. The commander of the army charged in with a large group of people.
The people in border city were all waiting for Shi Qingluo to give the signal, and they were all hiding in the dark.
Shi Qingluo’s patience was very good. She waited for the Ge commander to divide the army into several groups. Some went to burn the rations, some went to look for armaments and material warehouses, and some went to the army station to kill.
After all the Ge Kingdom generals and soldiers entered the city and separated, Shi Qingluo got the soldiers who were pretending to be asleep to get up and close the gate so that they could beat the dogs.
She came here in advance to set up a trap, so she naturally found out who the spy was.
The plan to use the sleeping drug was discussed by Ge Kingdom and the previous dynasty’s forces, so this time, Shi Qingluo had also brought the antidote that her little husband had concocted.
The spy had drugged them with sleeping pills, and Shi Qingluo’s men had also been drugged with antidotes, so all the sleeping soldiers had been instructed to pretend to be asleep.
Then, Shi Qingluo took out a firework signal and lit it. A red light flew into the sky and exploded.
This red light was very obvious at night. The general of Ge Kingdom was not stupid. After seeing it, he immediately felt that something was wrong.
Hence, he shouted, “Everyone, be careful!”
Then, he would weigh whether to continue or retreat.
But before he could confirm, arrows suddenly flew out from several tricky corners.
All the Ge Kingdom’s scattered troops were hit by the arrow rain and suffered heavy losses.
The commander’s expression changed when he saw this. He did not expect Daliang to be in ambush.
“Retreat, quickly retreat!” He pulled out his saber and was about to lead his men toward the city gate.
The soldiers who were supposed to be ‘asleep’ suddenly appeared in batches, catching the Ge Kingdom soldiers who were already in chaos by surprise.
Shi Qingluo did not put on her armor and went into battle. Instead, she kept releasing smoke signals.
Green, blue, and yellow exploded in the air.
Then, teams of special Daliang soldiers appeared. Other than those who shot arrows, there were also teams that specialized in hooking the horse’s legs.
The Ge Kingdom cavalry could not display their full strength in the small city, and now they were falling off their horses.
As soon as they got off their horses, they would be stabbed to the ground by teams of soldiers who were holding weapons that looked like large harpoons.
When the commander brought the remaining soldiers to the gate, he suddenly threw rocks from the city wall, killing and injuring another group of people.
After throwing stones, there were not many Ge Kingdom soldiers left.
After that, they would be led by Daliang’s generals and their elites.
In less than two hours, the Ge Kingdom’s army that had ambushed the city was wiped out.
Because Shi Qingluo was well prepared and knew how to seize the opportunity, the casualties on Daliang’s side were very few.
Xiao Yuanshi ordered his men to push the wheelchair to the city wall and watch the battle end.
Shi Qingluo did not go down. Instead, she continued to command from the city wall.
This shocked Xiao Yuanshi and the generals in the city.
Obviously, they did not expect Shi Qingluo to have the ability to mobilize troops to fight.
Xiao Yuanshi looked at Shi Qingluo with a complicated gaze. “Did Zheng’er teach you this?”
Shi Qingluo smiled. “That’s right. My husband is very talented and capable in the military.”
“He was the one who came up with these plans and strategies for me.”
She had indeed followed her little husband’s strategic deployment, but she had grasped the time and order of the battle.
Xiao Yuanshi felt even more upset. He had such a powerful son, yet he was cut off from his family just like that.
Sometimes, he couldn’t help but wonder if Ge Chunru had drugged him to make him so confused.
“Although it was Zheng’er who gave the strategy, your command is also very good. That’s why we can annihilate the enemy with the least cost,” he praised honestly.
This was the truth. He had watched Shi Qingluo’s command and control of the situation throughout the entire process. It had to be said that even he might not be able to do so well.
Shi Qingluo did not expect the scumbag father to praise her.
She smiled and accepted it proudly. “That’s right. My husband is so powerful. I can’t embarrass him.”
Xiao Yuanshi was speechless. This daughter-in-law really did not know what modesty was.
The other generals also found that Princess Fu Bao had a very straightforward personality, which made them feel that she was very likable.
The general guarding the border city said sincerely, “No matter what, it’s all thanks to Lord Xiao and the princess today. Otherwise, our border city would be in danger.”
Shi Qingluo smiled and said, “Other than us, it’s all thanks to your cooperation and the bravery of the soldiers below.”
“I will tell my husband about the situation of the previous battle. When the time comes, I will ask him to write a memorial to the capital and ask the Emperor to reward him according to achievements.”
The generals standing here had all participated in the battle just now. They only came up after the battle ended.
Upon hearing her words, the smiles on their faces deepened. “Then, I’ll have to thank Princess Fubao and Lord Xiao!”
Xiao Yuanshi realized that this bad daughter-in-law was very good at buying people’s hearts.
She was really Xiao Hanzheng’s good wife.
Then, he couldn’t help but think of himself, leaving only his heart stifled.
He still wanted to say something to ease the tension, but Shi Qingluo left with her men after saying goodbye.
She also brought the reinforcements and the elites out of the city.
Sitting in the wheelchair and listening to the cheers of the soldiers below, Xiao Yuanshi felt extremely lonely.
Suddenly, he didn’t know what was the point of him trying so hard to climb up all these years.
Xiao Yuanshi’s reaction was naturally noticed by the other generals.
However, no one came forward to comfort him. Instead, they despised him for being blind.
He actually broke off his relationship with such a powerful son for a woman who was not presentable.
It was too late to regret now. He had asked for it.
It had to be said that King Yi was the smartest in this aspect.
The situation in the other border city was similar.
Under the leadership of Xiao Hanzheng, they annihilated the Ge Kingdom’s army with minimal casualties.
He even personally put on his armor and went into battle, beheading a powerful general of Ge Kingdom who was born with divine strength and capturing him.
This battle had earned Xiao Hanzheng the recognition of all the soldiers in the city.
The soldiers who followed him were even more impressed by him.
The generals of Daliang were thinking about how to rescue the enemy, while Xiao Hanzheng was thinking about how to lure the enemy in and annihilate them.
After wiping out the Ge army, Xiao Hanzheng left the city with his army.
