Chapter 840 – Chang’e’s Ascent to The Moon (Part 1)

Entering the palace, from the distance, Li Xiao Yao saw that the audience hall was guarded by lots of imperial guards, whose swords flashed frozen light. It seemed that the defense in the palace had been strengthened a lot since Owen’s succession. A guard captain went forward and said, “Your Highness, please disarm your weapons and war horse, otherwise you will not be able to enter the hall.”

I was a little shocked because when Rob was in office, there was no such rule. The generals who were qualified to go to the hall were commonly empire ministers, so there was no need to worry about conducting an assassination. It really seemed that Owen’s sense of security was so poor that he made this rule.

Waving my hand, I had already collected Dragon Reservoir Sword and Zhen Yue Blade in my pocket, and then Divine Dragon Horse was also restored into the pet window. I walked into the main hall without any weapons, there were only a dozen ministers in the audience hall. Owen sat on the throne, behind him was the Nine Treasures, the symbol of the highest authority over the world. Ten well-behaved guards were behind Owen, while the poker-faced Princess Pearl stood on the right side of the king’s throne looking at me from afar.

“Commander Li Xiao Yao of the Royal Army.”

Owen slowly stood up from the throne and said, “This time you did a deed of merit to recruit soldiers from Ba Huang City’s Barbarian Tribe, and what kind of rewards you want, just tell me, I won’t be stingy.”

I could feel the insincerity in his words, so I bowed to him respectfully and said, “Your Majesty, I don’t need any rewards, it’s my duty to contribute to the empire.”

“Well.”

Owen’s raised the corner of his mouth, showing a smile that couldn’t be seen through, saying, “Commander Li Xiao Yao is really a patriotic patriot, he is the model of the imperial soldiers. Reward him the battle ax.”

In fact, this so-called battle ax was just a symbol of military achievement, which could be hung in the army as a prop to partly inspire the morale of the Royal Army.

The guard beside me helped me pick up the battle ax, and I bowed to Emperor Owen in respect.

Owen continued, “After Han Lin’s death, the Ocean of No Return has been peaceful. But recently, the Dark Moon Elves of the northern savage tribe are beginning to build warships. With their unparalleled archery throughout the world, these moon elves pillaged along the Iron Skull City and the Moon city. It makes these two empires suffer unspeakably. If they continue to rage, sooner or later, they will threaten Tian Ling City’s coastal security. These moon elves from the Dark Moon Elves Territory have about ten thousand people in total and all they are proficient at archery, so even the Hybrid Demon army avoid conflicts with them. But Tian Ling Empire’s prestige can’t be stained. Which general is willing to fight for our Empire and conquer the Dark Moon Elves army?

Xu Yi, the new commander of the Flame Dragon Army, made a bow with his hands folding in front and said, “Your Majesty, the Royal Army has nearly 100 warships and it is an elite Tian Ling navy. I think that the Royal Army is dispatched to fight them. What’s more, Commander Li Xiao Yao is good at fighting. I believe that Commander Li could triumph over the moon elves in one strike and make those little bitches dare not to violate our Tian Ling’s territory anymore.”

Original Translation from WWW。wangmamaread。com

Looking up at Xu Yi, I frowned and said, “My Majesty, the Royal Army experienced ceaseless campaigns against the Ocean of No Return, Deer Lake, Revered Plain, and the Barbarian tribe, and has never rested once. Besides, they reclaimed the wasteland in Fire Crystal Basin. So the soldiers are fatigued and they need a period of recuperation to fight again. Moreover…now that the Dark Moon Elves are on warships, I deem their navy is quite strong. Why don’t we hold our position and set up camps along the coast to contend with them? Our army has plenty of resources supply from Tian Ling City and the enemy can’t wage a protracted war against us.”

Princess Pearl stepped forward and made a bow with her hands folded in front, “Royal Brother, what Li Xiao Yao said is reasonable. We don’t have to compete with the Dark Moon Elves on the Ocean of No Return. Although the Sea Nymphs disappeared, it does not mean that all of the Sea Nymphs have been killed. Once the Sea Nymphs are involved in the war, our soldiers at sea will definitely be defeated.”

Owen smiled, “I understand. So be it. Commander Li Xiao Yao of the Royal Army.”

I made a bow with my hands folded in front, “Yes.”

Owen said, “The Royal Army can rest for half a month and go out to battle after that. I don’t care what methods the Royal Army will use. You must drive the Dark Moon Elves’ warships 100 miles away from the territory of Tian Ling City. Otherwise, the Royal Army will be punished.”

I took a deep breath, “The Royal Army took over.”

Standing next to Pearl, I frowned. Owen imposed the task to battle the Dark Moon Elves on the Royal Army. Shit! After becoming the emperor, Owen seemed to have changed from the shrewd and powerful General of Xia Yu Army to a master who only asked others to do things. Fortunately, he did not quarrel openly with me, otherwise, I would have no way due to his current power.

Next, discussion about battles on the border between the two countries continued. The three main cities: Moon City, Sea City, and Flame Cloud City already had some issues with Tian Ling City. Although only local skirmishes happened, it also indicated that a storm was coming. Since the championship of the Hero’s Wings Cup was over, the national war would begin soon.

……

As night fell, I left the imperial palace of Tian Ling City where the atmosphere was too gloomy.

Back to the Royal Army camp, Han Yuan and Xiao Li immediately asked me what the emperor said. They seemed to be very sensitive, knowing that the Royal Army was now facing troubles.
