Chapter 400: Soldiers Falling From The Sky
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
At the top of Snow Mountain was a cave made from ice that had been carved into the cliff.
The door of the cave was closed. It was made from ice too, and was shielded by a ray of light.
Inside the cave were two young women. They were sitting on cushions, face-to-face.
An impenetrable light separated the two.
One had long hair, smooth skin and a beautiful face, and looked very elegant and demure. She sat on the cushion without making a sound.
She also had a fine figure as well. She was the Water Empress, Hong Yan.
The other woman also looked very charming, but her personality seemed totally different to that of Hong Yan. Instead, she looked very seductive. This was the Ice Queen, Liu Jingning.
“Hong Yan, the whole of Water Nation is mine now. I think you’d better leave this place! The Five Elements Mountain is such a small place for you to stay in,” Ice Queen said.
The Water Empress did not reply. Qi was rising from her body. It seemed that the Qi was trying to break the restrictive enchantments on the Holy Ground.
Obviously, one’s True Core Strength would not lose effect in this cave.
“Do not try to break the restrictions here. You won’t succeed! I know that you came here in order to try break the restriction. But you are bound to fail, just like your mother did. Why bother?” Liu Jingning laughed.
Hearing this, the Water Empress suddenly opened her eyes!
Hong Yan said coldly, “I know it is the Jiang family who sent the soldiers to help you. I want you to tell them that since I have already left, I will not go back to try and take the throne!”
Liu Jingning sneered. “No matter what you say, your family name is Jiang, so you are still a member of the Jiang family. As long as you are alive, those people will not stop worrying!”
“So they sent you here to take my life? You will not succeed!” Hong Yan said.
“Of course, I cannot take your life and I do not dare to as you are also a member of the Jiang family. Fifty years ago, I came all the way out here to take that item. I never thought that you would be here, and it never occurred to me that the late Emperor of Water Nation would actually turn out to be your father’s servant. He even officially accepted you as his daughter and made you his heiress. I think the reason why he did so was to try hide his true identity as your father’s servant.”
“That item belongs to my late mother. You cannot take it!” Hong Yan shook her head.
Liu Jingning said in a low voice, “Why? Do you really think that item can change your fate? It’s impossible! Your late mother failed that time, and you will too!”
Liu Jingning sneered. “Jiang Hong Yan, both you and your late mother are bound to misery. Your father died to change your mother’s fate and he still did not succeed. In fact, no one can! But for me, that item can help me be stronger. Why do you have to stop me from achieving that?”
“I do not want to change anything! You want to be stronger, but there are many other ways to do so. Why do you have to take away the thing that my late mother left to me?” Hong Yan said. She closed her eyes.
If it were not for the impenetrable light between them, Liu Jingning would have already taken that item from Hong Yan.
Suddenly, a wooden plate flew into the cave from outside.
Liu Jingning caught it easily with her slim hand. There were a few lines inscribed on it. After reading it, Liu Jingning frowned.
“Flying lanterns in the sky?” She was rather confused. Then she took out a bronze mirror.
She snapped her fingers. The next moment, her True Core Strength changed into a ray of light and darted towards the mirror.
In the blink of an eye, the scene outside the cave was displayed in the mirror.
In the dark sky, thousands of huge shining lanterns were floating and flying higher and higher.
Many soldiers of the Ice Troops gathered together and talked about the peculiar scene. They were talking so loud that Liu Jingning could hear their voices.
“Why on earth are there so many floating lanterns? What is happening? They still have not occupied Snow City, have they?” Liu Jingning frowned.
She also thought the lanterns were the doing of the citizens of the Snow City.
Right at this moment, she saw something strange in the scene.
Liu Jingning was surprised. A great amount of shadows were descending upon the Snow Mountain.
The soldiers of the Ice Troops outside the cave could not use their True Core Strength and the sky was too dark, so they failed to see the shadows. But she could see it and realized that something was wrong.
“Jiang Hong Yan, your country’s citizens are really quite tough. Not only have they protected their city, but they also dared to come up to the mountain.” Liu Jingning sneered. “Do not worry, they will all die!”
Hearing this, Hong Yan frowned. Still, she did not open her eyes. Meanwhile, the impenetrable light behind her began to shift.
Liu Jingning did not notice this, as she was busy looking at the scene in the mirror.
The thousands of soldiers of Snow City had already crossed the abyss and were already above the city wall of the Holy Ground. The distance between them and the ground was only meters.
The patrolling soldiers finally spotted them.
“Sh*t! They have come!”
“What the f*ck! Are soldiers falling from the sky?”
“F*ck, the soldiers falling from the sky.. they are people of the Snow City!”
“What! How did they fly across the abyss?”
“Don’t talk bullsh*t! Inform the General!”
“Where are the bowmen? Tell them to come right now!”
The soldiers began to shout and run about like headless chicks.
At this moment, Xu Que and the soldiers of Snow City all landed.
Before he touched the ground, Xu Que took out a speaker and said, “Surprise! You have been surrounded by us! Now, men stand on the left, women on the right, and everyone else in the middle. Put your hands behing your heads and squat!”
