Xu Que and his three thousand soldiers were now heading to the Imperial City.
They were all in very high spirits.
This army had won many battles in the past few days. They felt invincible!
They felt very confident with themselves and said that they would easily take the Imperial City back within two hours.
When Xu Que arrived at the city gates, he saw tens of thousands of soldiers standing upon the city wall and smiling down at him.
Xu Que raised a hand and his soldiers stopped.
“Why are they smiling? It’s as if they are welcoming us!” Xu Que frowned.
Buttface said, “They want us to be less alert. When we approach them, they will definitely shoot us! We’d better return to Snow City and come back in a few days.”
Xu Que gave him a slap on his head and shouted, “F*ck off! It must be because they are afraid of us and are about to surrender.”
“You are too full of yourself!” Buttface said.
Seeing this, the soldiers all laughed.
They had been watching Xu Que and this dog quarrelling the whole way. They were amazed that they still had the energy to bicker with each other.
Meanwhile, a few soldiers of the Imperial City were riding towards them.
“Welcome! Hero Zhuge, we have been waiting for you for a long time. We have already taken control of the entire city!”
What?! The whole city is under their control? Are they on my side? No way, the Imperial City would not be that easy to take back.
“Shoot them!” Xu Que shouted.
A few Rocket Guns were carried over. The soldiers then targeted the approaching soldiers of the Imperial City.
Seeing this, the soldiers of the Imperial City stopped smiling and screamed, “Don’t! Hero Zhuge, we are on your side.”
“Nonsense! What proof have you got to prove that you are on our side?” Buttface said.
The soldiers hurriedly said, “Yesterday, we heard that the Ice Queen was injured and had fled. The Water Empress is about to come back. We have also heard that Hero Zhuge has taken back all the lost cities in two days, and we admire you so much. Then we killed the traitors in the city and took control of the city!”
“Huh? The Ice Queen was injured and has fled? Why haven’t I heard of this?” Xu Que was surprised.
Back at the Holy Ground, he had only seen the message left by the Water Empress on the ground, and had not seen the Ice Queen. He knew that the Ice Queen had been at the Holy Ground and there was a high chance that she had disappeared somewhere with the Water Empress.
Everything just happens too fast!
“Hero Zhuge. The Princess Zi Xuan saw the Ice Queen running away herself. We were not able to take back the Imperial City without her,” a soldier of the Imperial City said.
Zi Xuan? Haha, I almost forgot, she is the younger sister of the Water Empress.
“Where is she now? Tell her to come and see me or I will shoot you!”
Hearing this, the soldiers felt a bit reluctant.
A princess cannot come out like this, it is too informal! But they are really powerful… if we do not ask the princess to come out and see him, what happens if he really shoots us?
“Is she coming or not? If she does not come, I shall shoot you now! The army behind me can no longer wait to kill you all!” Xu Que shouted.
How shameless he is! He is calling his force of three thousand soldiers an army?! We have a hundred thousand soldiers and some leaders who are in the Infant Transformation Stage. Why should we act at his behest?!
Still, they had no option but to continue smiling at Xu Que.
“It’s you!” a female voice spoke.
Xu Que looked up to the city wall and saw a young woman standing on the city wall.
“Zi Xuan!” Xu Que laughed and asked the soldiers to withdraw the Rocket Guns.
When the Ice Queen had first taken the Water Nation, she had simply imprisoned Zi Xuan in the palace.
But over the last two days, she had heard that all ten cities had been reclaimed by a young man. She had immediately guessed that the young man was Xu Que.
So when the Ice Queen had been injured, she had instantly sent someone out to assassinate the traitors in the city and take back the Water Nation. Today, having heard that Xu Que had come to the Imperial City, she had quickly come out to meet him.
When she called out ‘Xu Que’, everyone at present was confused.
She called him ‘Xu Que’?
Then Xu Que proudly entered the city with his soldiers.
Compared with the other ancient cities, the Imperial City looked much grander. Thanks to the Water Empress, the economy was very good and all the citizens were living a happy and peaceful life. There were many cultivators carrying advanced magic weapons and walking on the street.
On the way to the palace, Zi Xuan was frowning. She did not say anything to Xu Que.
Xu Que thought that she was still holding grudge against him about the Flaming Sun Princess, so he did not say anything to her either. Instead he talked with a random soldier and asked him what had happened between the Ice Queen and the Water Empress.
“As I have been told by Princess Zi Xuan, one night when she was walking in the palace, she saw the Ice Queen coming out from the treasure vault. The Ice Queen looked very pale and there was blood on her collar. It was clear that she was badly injured. Then Princess Zi Xuan went to her and asked what had happened. The Ice Queen told her that she had been hit by the Water Empress,” the soldier said.
Hearing this, Xu Que was stunned.
It seems that the Ice Queen failed to kill the Water Empress and was almost killed by her.
“Why she did not kill Princess Zi Xuan that night?” Xu Que asked.
“Actually, ever since the Ice Queen began taking over the Water Nation, she has not done anything bad. Everything is as it is was before. After she was injured, she just spoke with Princess Zi Xuan for a while and hurriedly left. Someone said that she had gone abroad.”
Xu Que frowned.
Something is not right!
