He rushed toward the north after exiting Xianyin Valley. That was Feng state’s territory, as well as the place where Crystal was staying.
Xianyin Mountain was not too far from Feng state, but it also wasn’t too close by. To walk, it would take at least three to five days.
As he was walking, there were traces of war left all along the way. Ruined weapons and broken armors could also be seen everywhere. He even found a flag that was torn to pieces. Most of these belonged to Feng state. It was evident that this Feng state was defeated in this battle, and it was a terrible defeat. Soldiers who died in this war definitely didn’t just amount to the three thousand over people who were buried at Xianyin Valley.
The sky was getting darker, Tang Yin had also rushed a long way. He was just about to find a place to rest when he heard a sudden faint shout further down his path.
There’s a fight! Tang Yin’s spirit was stunned and he sped up.
After a short period of time, he found moving shadows in front of him. He was careful and didn’t rush over immediately. Instead, he hid in the bushes along the path and approached them as he checked out the battle situation.
He found that there was a huge army of soldiers in silver armor surrounding the battlefield. There were at least a few hundred people, and he couldn’t see the situation in the middle of the crowd clearly. All he could hear was shouts and screams.
Tang Yin evaluated the battle and calculated quickly in his heart. After being silent for a while, he stood up and was about to rush forward. Just at this moment, a low voice sounded out of a sudden from behind him, “With just you, how is it possible to win over hundreds of them? If you go now, it’ll just be a death wish.”
Tang Yin was shocked when he heard the voice. He turned back quickly and got into a stance to attack. As he had been practicing martial arts ever since he was a kid, his sixth sense had always been sharper than most people. Yet he didn’t even notice the person who approached him from behind. This was unexpected for Tang Yin.
There was a person squatting among the bushes five meters behind him. He was wearing Feng state’s black armor, and from his appearance, he didn’t seem too old. He looked slightly over twenty years old, and had a spear in his hand.
“You… are from Feng state?” Tang yin stared at the young man coldly. If he hadn’t merged with Yan Lie, he wouldn’t have understood what he was saying, let alone speaking their language.
“He!” The young man scoffed and said, “If I wasn’t from Feng state, you would’ve been dead by now.”
Although the other party’s words was arrogant, Tang Yin had to admit that it was a fact. Since he could approach him so quietly from behind, killing him would be an easy thing to do.
He frowned and said coldly, “Your skills are good, why aren’t you out there killing our enemies but hiding here instead?!”
The young man grinned and said as he shook his head, “Go out there to kill our enemies? I have never cultivated spiritual arts before. I will die quickly if I go out there.”
A hint of shock flashed across Tang Yin’s eyes as he asked, “Then how did you come behind me?”
“I was always here, never moved.”
“…” Tang Yin was speechless. He initially thought that this young man was a pro, turned out that he overestimated him.
He didn’t bother the young man anymore. He turned back and pouted at the direction of the battlefield to ask, “What’s the situation there?”
The young man shrugged helplessly and said, “More than twenty brothers are trapped by an army of soldiers of the enemy country. After fighting for about half an hour, there probably aren’t many brothers who are still alive.”
Tang Yin was angered and tickled at the young man’s indifference in his speech. He raised his eyebrows and said with a scoff, “Your companions are battling with their lives on the battlefield, yet you just hide here and watch the fun?”
The young man shrugged helplessly, “I wouldn’t be of help even if I go out.”
Tang Yin’s expression was gloomy. He took a quick step forward and rushed right in front of the young man. Without waiting for him to react, he snatched the young man’s spear away. He then turned his figure and rushed toward the battlefield without making a sound.
“Hey…” Tang Yin was too fast. It was already too late when the young man wanted to stop him.
Tang Yin’s figure was like a black panther. With just two leaps, he jumped out of the bushes and reached the battlefield. The spear in his hand spurred forward.
The attention of the silver-armored soldiers were all placed on the enemies in the middle of the crowd. They wouldn’t have expected for an enemy to rush out all of a sudden from behind. With a scream, one of the soldiers’ back was pierced by a spear. The tip of the spear that was dripping with blood emerged from his chest.
The surrounding silver-armored soldiers shouted in shock as they saw this. Without waiting for them to turn back and attack him, Tang Yin’s arms exerted force and raised up in a rush. Followed by a slashing sound, the corpse that was hanging on the spear was thrown out and slammed onto a crowd of soldiers.
“There’s an enemy here!” The silver-armored soldiers finally reacted and more than ten of them rushed toward Tang Yin instantly.
Tang Yin had already confirmed when he was watching the battle earlier that although there were many of them, there were no spiritual practitioners. They were all just ordinary soldiers. For people like them, he wouldn’t care even if a hundred of them were to attack him, let alone just a dozen people.
“Hmph!” The corner of Tang Yin’s mouth raised as he sneered. With a spear in one hand, he exerted all of his force.
Shua- He used the three-meter long spear like a sword, and the sharp spear tip drew a crescent-shaped ray of light in the air. Several front row soldiers had the armor in front of their chests broken. Blood spurted out from their chests and they followed to fall backward.
The soldiers behind did not expect for Tang Yin to be so powerful. Seeing that his clothes were just Feng state’s ordinary soldiers, his skills were similar to that of spiritual warriors.
Just as they were stunned, the spear in Tang Yin’s hand poked out like a snake continuously.
Pu, pu, pu! Three continuous strikes pierced the throats of three soldiers accurately. The three didn’t even manage to scream and died on the spot.
It’s slow to put it into words, but it was extremely fast in reality. Tang Yin’s movement was fast, his attack was even faster, and all off his strikes killed. Killing off more than ten soldiers was just a matter of a brief moment.
The silver-armored soldiers started to panic. The ones who were in front saw this and were stunned by Tang Yin; they retreated in fear. Those at the back who didn’t know what was happening were still rushing forward. They collided with one another and caused chaos in their formation.
Tang Yin took the opportunity to kill out a bloody path and rushed into the center of the battlefield.
The soldiers who were trapped were indeed Feng state soldiers. Twenty over bodies laid on the ground. There were the enemies’, as well as the Feng people’s. The remaining Feng state soldiers were only less than ten people.
Tang Yin looked up and took a quick glance. Without wasting a single second, he waved the spear in his hand and shouted, “Run with me!” After he finished, he went back to killing.
Several soldiers of the Feng state all thought that they were about to die from being circled by their enemies and were battling like beasts. They didn’t at all expect that at a crucial moment, reinforcements would arrive. Although it was just one person who was in an ordinary soldier armor, his skills seemed to be outstandingly great. He entered their enemies’ formation unstoppable by anyone, and before the enemies’ soldiers could reach three feet before him, they were all swept to the ground by him.
“Kill!” The fighting spirit of several Feng state soldiers was boosted greatly. With the help of their survival instincts, they rushed out of the huge crowd.
Tang Yin slowed down deliberately and fell to the back. He then pointed to the bushes he hid in earlier and shouted, “Run toward that side, I’ll distract them!”
All the soldiers were obviously worried to leave him behind on his own, but they couldn’t care so much in such an emergency. They agreed in unison and rushed toward the bushes by the road.
Tang Yin pointed toward that direction, the first reason being that he knew that there weren’t any enemies ambushed around there as he came out from there. Also, that young man was in the bushes. He would definitely follow along when he saw the soldiers running toward there. Tang Yin didn’t want anyone to stay at this time.
Seeing how the enemies that were just about to be destroyed slipped away right in front of their eyes, the silver-armored soldiers were unsatisfied and ran toward him in unison.
Tang Yin stood still on his ground with a spear in one hand and placed it across his chest. He looked at the many enemies before him and coldly said, “There’s no need to chase anymore, your opponent is right here.”
“Kill him first!”
“Yes! Kill this guy first!”
The silver-armored soldiers could tell that Tang Yin wasn’t an ordinary person, but with their headcounts, they weren’t afraid of him. More than ten soldiers surrounded him and trapped Tang Yin right in the middle.
