Chapter 399: Let’s Go
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
That night, the sky was extremely dark. There were only a few stars shining in the sky.
An army of thousands was marching towards the Snow Mountain.
Xu Que was the military advisor of the army, whilst Situ was leading the army.
Soldiers towards the back of the army were carrying a huge amount of goods and materials, like Kongming Lanterns and fabric wings. Each of the soldiers had an ice lolly in their hands.
The soldiers carefully held the ice lollies in their hand. They were all very confident.
Still, some of the soldiers also felt a bit concerned.
Will these ice lollies and fabric wings really help us cross the abyss and fly to the Holy Ground? Can we really avoid being spotted by the other side with thousands of us all moving together?
Soon, after they had climbed about halfway up the mountain, they found that their True Core Strength had been drained completely.
It was the same for Xu Que. Even so, he still managed to summon System and ask it if he could break this restriction.
The System answered, “This restriction is too difficult to break with the current level of your System. The System requires an upgrade!”
Hearing this, Xu Que did not say anything.
Clearly, this damn System wants me to spend more Acting Tough Points. I am already at Level 3. I would need to spend at least 10,000 Acting Tough Points to upgrade to a higher level! Besides, with the help of the ice lolly, I will not even need to use my True Core Strength.
“Hero Zhuge, the abyss is right in front of us,” Situ said.
“Ask the army to stop, I will have a look around,” Xu Que said. Then he walked forward a few steps and stopped at the edge of the abyss.
The abyss was so deep that he could see nothing but darkness, as if the whole universe had been buried by the dark.
On the other side, he could see a person walking.
“That should be a soldier of the Ice Troops!”
“System, tell me the distance between the two sides, the speed of the wind and the height we need to reach if we want to fly across the abyss,” Xu Que said.
“Calculation completed. The height should be between 200 to 230 meters…”
Xu Que smiled.
As people often said, once you mastered mathematics, physics and chemistry, you would be able to solve any problem.
For me, once you have a System like mine, you can really solve all the problems.
“Situ, ask the soldiers to put on the fabric wings and stay still upon a Kongming Lantern. I will light the Kongming Lanterns, and we can all fly across the abyss,” Xu Que said.
“Can… this really work?” Situ was still not sure about this.
“Believe me! This is science, the wisdom of humanity!” Xu Que patted Situ on her head and smiled.
I am a general and I was just patted by him as if I am a child. This is really embarrassing.
Luckily, since it was dark around, no one else had seen it. Otherwise, she would not even know how to face her own subordinates.
“Hero Zhuge… if you ever touch me without asking me first, I will punish you according to military law.” Situ said seriously. Then she turned around and walked towards the soldiers.
She is really a difficult catch!
Soon, Situ came back. She was wearing a fabric wing and quickly crawled onto a Kongming Lantern.
“Everyone is ready now.” She said.
Xu Que laughed and began to don his fabric wings. He crawled onto a Kongming Lantern too.
The Kongming Lantern was made from special materials. It was light and firm and could lift a few adults at one time.
“System, check if the igniter has been properly installed.”
Before their departure, he had asked the citizens to install an igniter to each lantern.
Once he flipped a switch, all the igniters in each of the lanterns would be lighted.
“Ding! All the igniters have been properly installed.” the System answered.
“Good! Let’s give the soldiers of the Ice Troops a big surprise!” Xu Que was very excited and quickly flipped the switch.
The lanterns lit up one after another. The whole area was soon full of light.
All the soldiers held their breaths as they waited for their lanterns to light up.
Situ was feeling very nervous as she stared at her own lantern.
Gradually, all the lanterns lit up. Seeing the lanterns beginning to rise, everyone was shocked. Their eyes were wide open.
Hero Zhuge is right!
How amazing is this!
Everyone felt very excited.
No one dared to make a sound. Earlier, Xu Que had demanded that no one make any sound before landing. Otherwise, he would hang them on the city wall and have their penis touched.
In the quiet night, tens of hundreds of lanterns slowly floated to the sky.
On the other side, a patrolling soldier saw this scene and exclaimed, “Look! Something is not right on the other side!”
“Where did all the lanterns come from?”
“How strange! A lantern cannot fly, right?”
Soon, all the soldiers on the city wall gathered together to discuss this peculiar scene.
They could only see the shining lanterns, not the people upon them.
“Could it be a signal from our peers? By now, General Li should probably have fully occupied Snow City!” a soldier said.
“Impossible! No one on our side has ever sent that sort of signal!”
“How strange this is. No one can use their True Core Strength on the mountain, so how come the lanterns are flying in the sky?”
“I see. It must be the people in the Snow City. they must be so desperate that they sent the lanterns up to the sky with their True Core Strength, hoping that God would save them!”
“Ha. We have given them enough chances!”
“Never mind the lanterns. Let’s go have a drink.”
“The Ice Queen is here, how dare you go have a drink?”
“What? When did she get here?”
“A few days ago. I have been told that she went to the Holy Ground to see the Water Empress…”
