Right when Happy was breaking out of the Mongolian logistics camp and Silver Wolf had not completed his quest in bothering the enemy flank, Silver Wolf did not know that another batch of people were on a high spot on a slope in the distance, and they were watching his fight against the ten thousand cavaliers with frowns on their faces.
“No! Hall Master Dream, I, Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain, can protect your elites to come to the Mongolian camp to carry out your quest, and I can also help you in creating an environment for you where you can get points, but if you want me to bring my troops to launch an ambush against Mu Clan with your people? I'd rather you just kill me.”
A tall and built man had his back turned to the various elites from Cla.s.s One Hall while he stood on the slope. His eyes shone with a cold and resolute glare.
Behind him were Dream Clouds, Blood Robes, Barren Murderer, a group of higher ups from Cla.s.s One Hall, and hundreds of core members. They stared at Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain with hostile expressions while they tried to coerce Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain to agree to their plan.
“Violent Wind, you know that I, Dream Clouds, have never gone back on my word. As long as you help me get rid of the people down below, I will give you a spot as an elder in Cla.s.s One Hall, and you will get at least one hundred thousand RMB every month. You can also enjoy quite a lot of resources that only our higher ups can get.”
Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain stared at the battlefield in the distance below him. He answered without even turning his head around, “Hall Master Dream, please don't try to use those words on me. I promised to bring you here just now because you had few people with you, and it's not easy to catch too many people's attention. Besides, you already said that you only want to come here to do your quests, and if you see the people from Mu Clan and Chivalry Sect, you will log off to avoid them.
“Now, you want me to take the lead in the attack? Hah! Dream on!”
He stopped talking for a moment. Then, Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain's tone changed. “Even though your influence in the north is great and no one dares offend you, I am not located in the north. At most, I won't come and play in the north anymore.
“But you want me to fight against the people from Mu Clan?
“I'm sorry, but I'm not that stupid. Right now, the entire south, Changjiang River Basin, West Region, and the coastal area is within Mu Clan's jurisdiction.
“Heh, I won't get into this swamp with you.”
“You!” Barren Murderer was so exasperated that he wanted to cut him down. But while he was livid, he truly did not swing his weapon against Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain right now.
One, Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain brought around six hundred of his cavaliers over here, and if he made a careless mistake, he will be hunted down.
Two, Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain escorted them to this place, and he can be considered to have done them a favor. If they killed him just because Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain refused to work with them, it will make them seem inhumane.
Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain saw through this, and he continued speaking coldly, “After all, you still have your ally from Sky Penetrating Tower. Go to Langye and have him bring his people to help you kill those from Mu Clan. I'd like to see whether he has that courage to do so or not.”
Dream Clouds and Blood Robes immediately scowled, but they kept quiet.
'This Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain is really not easy to fool…'
In truth, they had already gone to Langye before.
But the b.a.s.t.a.r.d was the embodiment of a person who was easily swayed depending on the situation. When he saw Cla.s.s One Hall's one hundred thousand members being forced to withdraw repeatedly and being bullied by the four sects to the point that they could fart in their faces and Cla.s.s One Hall will not dare do anything, Langye dodged Cla.s.s One Hall's requests for help by using his own quests as a reason.
Even this time, when they asked Langye to help provide them cover, Langye used a whole slew of excuses to turn them down and even said that the people from the four sects were definitely keeping a close eye on his actions.
In the end, Langye did not join this collaboration.
Forget about fighting against Mu Clan.
Right now, even if Langye obtained the t.i.tle of a senior-rank captain, he did not state that he had any sort of connection with Cla.s.s One Hall. If they really sent a message to him requesting for help right now, that b.a.s.t.a.r.d might actually have the galls to refuse receiving all the messenger pigeons they sent in his way.
Dream Clouds said nothing but sighed. She knew that it was practically impossible to have Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain provide them cover to help them kill those from Mu Clan.
But if her own people—numbering only to the hundreds—were to rush down and fight head on against Mu Clan, they will be in grave danger as well.
It had to be known that all the people down there had military t.i.tles.
If they took the initiative to attack, all of them will be hunted.
Dream Clouds sucked in a deep breath. Perhaps it was also good for them to not take any action. If Happy were here, then all the higher ups from Cla.s.s One Hall will die, and they will be locked up for seventy-two hours. The defense line Cla.s.s One Hall set up in the north will crumble without anyone attacking them, and when they were eventually released, the north will already be swallowed by Mu Clan, Chivalry Sect, Wind a.s.sault Tower, as well as Wind and Rain Alliance working together.
“Alright, we'll not mention this matter.” Dream Clouds changed her tone. “Since Mu Clan is doing their quest over here, we'll change locations—”
“Based on the agreement we made earlier, I am only in charge of escorting you near the Mongolian camp. You will be doing your own quests.
“I don't want the people from Mu Clan seeing me walk together with you. So, I'll be bringing my cavaliers to do my quest somewhere else,” Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain said coldly.
“Don't go overboard…” Barren Murderer had killing intent s.h.i.+ne in his eyes.
The people behind him showed hostile expressions.
There were fewer than three thousand cavaliers in total here. If Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain took away a large group with him, while they will still be able to do their quest with just a little more than two thousand people, it was too dangerous, and they will also suffer a lot more casualties.
But Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain was not an easy person to deal with. “When we came over here, you personally agreed that if we find any team from the four sects, I can go away anytime I want. I will have nothing to do with you, so are you trying to go back on your word right now? I'm telling you, I have a recording.”
Once he said those words, Blood Robes and Dream Clouds, who were people who loved their reputation and dignity, instantly fell silent.
Cla.s.s One Hall's golden label as a top-cla.s.s sect must not be ruined.
“Alright, you can leave.” Dream Clouds waved her hand with a calm expression, telling Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain to go.
“Hall master!” Barren Murderer wanted to continue trying to coerce Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain into helping them, but Dream Clouds interrupted him with a raised hand.
Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain did not waste any of his time with any trivialities anymore either. He summoned his people unhesitatingly and left with his six hundred cavaliers. He did not even bother saying goodbye to Cla.s.s One Hall.
“…That b.a.s.t.a.r.d!” Blood Robes spat out those words through clenched teeth.
Dream Clouds sucked in a deep breath and stared at Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain's gradually retreating back coldly. “From the moment we saw the people from Mu Clan, he already made his decision to leave. No matter how we try to persuade him, it won't work.”
“No buts. Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain won't dare to get involved in the fight between us and Mu Clan, because Cla.s.s One Hall has already lost too many times. We have never won against Mu Clan and Happy in a direct confrontation before.”
Dream Clouds' words caused the people behind her to fall silent.
“That is the case for Langye, and it is the same case with Violent Wind and b.l.o.o.d.y Rain.”
“We had one hundred thousand members chased out of the plains this time, and many people believe that the situation is already set in stone. It's indeed wishful thinking if we want them to fight against Mu Clan right now.”
“Hall master, we still have a chance!” said someone behind her.
Dream Clouds shook her head indifferently. “We have none.
“I thought that Happy will start to have all his forces lock down on the resources for points at the frontlines. I didn't expect that he will send a group of elites to come here and carry out a quest to hara.s.s the flank. He's not letting the points from either side go.
“Our only chance in getting points by sneaking to the Mongolian camp is gone now as well.”
Blood Robes and Barren Murderer instantly fell silent.
Indeed, while the camp was huge, if they were careless and were discovered by Mu Clan members, at that time, they will be easy prey for Mu Clan, and they will all end up dead.
“We will leave the plains and give up on the Emperor's Announcement event.”
As she stood on the slope of the plains, Dream Clouds made a decision that no one expected.
