Black angel - Chapter 5 The Guardian
From the brow up to the back of his head, the “left hemisphere” is shaved completely. The long hair on the right side is shawled. The long bangs on the front half of the forehead cover the right eye. When looking at a person, he only uses his left eye to aim from bottom to top, and his expression is very poor.
“Ouch, those people in the city are farting, pig head – pig head, where are you dead? Come here
The giant scorpion youth yells.
A white and fat man of the pure blood giant scorpion race squeezed out from the middle of the team. He was so tired that his face was sweating. He narrowed a pair of mung bean small eyes and played a military salute to the youth with a smile.
“Colonel jute, chief of staff of the Corps, is reporting. Your highness, what can I do for you?”
The young prince, who was also the commander of the regiment of thousands of soldiers, asked the chief of staff named Zhu te, nicknamed pig head: “fat, didn’t you tell me that the other party was just a group of bandits? If you don’t make it clear, I will send you to the front line to charge. ”
The chief of staff of PigHead shrunk his neck and said with a smile, “Your Highness, there is a magician in this city who is proficient in the magic of the great shift of heaven and earth. I heard that we came to suppress bandits, so we used the Dafa to move a city from the Far Eastern Silk country, named Chang’an, which is the meaning of long-term peace and stability – “
” snow, snow, snow — snow, you big head ghost! ”
Prince taifan was furious, “report truthfully, no bullshit!”
“I’m not bullshit. I’m talking about legends…”
“Well, it is said that…”
“It is said that it can’t be done either!”
The chief of staff shrugged his shoulders and said helplessly, “Your Highness, I can only talk about bullshit and legend. You let me tell the truth, just hit my weakness…”
“…… Is there any other part of you that is really longer? As a chief of staff, I can’t even get any real information. I’m a fool. ”
The chief of staff of PigHead turned his eyes and said, “I used to be the storyteller of the teahouse in Beijing. Your highness, you must make me a consultant. If I really don’t work, it’s strange that your Highness has no eyes, and you’re not worthy of the name. Because your majesty ordered to clean up the underworld, your organization is suspected of employing underage girls to engage in” aid communication ” ’”We have to take refuge in the army. No one can say who we are.”
When Prince taifan was exposed by his subordinates, he could not help but become angry and exclaimed, “what do you say? Are you going to attack the city in such a rash way? The art of war says that you know yourself and your enemy, and you are invincible in a hundred battles. Now I don’t even know who the opponent’s handle is. How can I fight? ”
“Your Highness, you should say” bandit chief “. We are not engaged in gang fighting. You should think carefully about what you say.”
Taifan raised his hand and slapped the soldier in the face. He said angrily, “boss, you can’t interrupt me. Get out of my way!”
The others were silent. They had nothing to say about the rogue commander.
The chief of staff of zhutou, who was born as a storyteller, ventured to strike up a conversation: “Your Highness, the villain was informed yesterday and knew the troops in the city like the palm of his hand.”
Tai fan was overjoyed and asked, “where is the informant now? Tell him to come and talk quickly. Be careful, don’t let the” cop “stare at him!”
Pig head wryly smile: “boss, don’t worry, there’s no cop here – damn, I’m confused too!”
Pig head also follows taifan gangsters, but it’s better to call your Highness the boss.
While speaking, a woman in black stood up from behind the chief of staff of PigHead and bowed down and said, “I’ll meet your royal highness, Lola Eryu, deputy of the rose Crusade army.”
As soon as this man came out, he was shocked by Russell and others on the head of the city. No one thought that Lola would surrender to the enemy and become a spy. If she told the scorpion army of the truth and falsehood in the city, everyone would be in danger.
Seeing Russell’s anger, he said with a smile: “do you remember what sister Lola said to you yesterday morning? Don’t misunderstand her efforts. ”
Russell’s face changed, and finally sighed and said with a bitter smile, “it’s too dangerous to do this. She should discuss it with us first.”
Xinran sighed: “the elder sister is an assassin. She has her own way of doing things. Now we’d better think about how to deal with the elite thousand people group. Brother, who’s that weird looking kid standing in the front
Russell took up the telescope, looked at it for a moment, and then said with a smile, “it’s strange how to make him commander of the army I don’t know if it’s good or bad. ”
Put down the mirror tube and told Xinran, “the elite thousand people’s regiment has always been directed by Catherine, the queen scorpion. I don’t know why this time the commander-in-chief has been replaced by Catherine’s younger brother, Prince taifan.”
Xinran had a meeting with Katherine. She felt that the young and beautiful queen was overbearing and inexperienced. She was convinced by her own words that she dismissed the refugees at the high price of a middle-grade terrane for each person, leaving a deep impression on her simplicity and generosity. I don’t know what kind of character his younger brother is. From his elder sister’s point of view, the standard should not be too bad.
“Taifan How to say that, “Russell said thoughtfully,” if you want to say strong, it is really very strong, if you want to say bad, it is not generally bad. In short, he is an indescribable character. ”
Tafan is Catherine’s brother, not his original name, which was changed by his sister as Queen. Taifan was the head of seven scorpion kings who had helped the Egyptian goddess Isis. Catherine named her brother taifan as an Egyptian goddess to encourage him to follow the example of King Scorpion to serve the goddess and assist himself faithfully.
However, contrary to his wishes, taifan was known as a “rogue Prince” in the kingdom of giant scorpion. When he was not a good official, he went to mix with the underworld and organize gangs of hooligans, which made the surrounding areas of the capital uneasy. Catherine could not, so she transferred her brother out and sent him to fight bandits everywhere. Today, I heard that there was a bandit in the walking bird paradise. Together with the troll, he killed mage sever and destroyed the rose crusade. In his anger, he sent his brother to lead the elite thousand people group to fight against him.
Most of the ruling families of various military powers in Zhongzhou have their own unique skills. For example, the holy dragon spirit of the royal family of the holy Kingdom, and the ice God palm of the Rama royal family. The giant Scorpion King family also has a secret family skills, known as the “scarlet God needle”. The former king of the giant scorpion, with his superb “scarlet needle”, ranked the ninth in the world’s martial arts list, and had no rival in the sea of Han Dynasty.
The scarlet needle is not a concealed weapon, but a kind of Kung Fu similar to the six pulse finger sword. It uses internal force to shoot toxins from the scorpion’s body from the fingertips. It is not only extremely poisonous, but also can shoot through the iron plate 100 meters away.
Katherine’s brothers and sisters have the unique skills of “scarlet needle”. It is said that taifan is better than her sister and is very conceited in this respect. They once bet that the man would shoot him with a pistol in ten steps. Taifan sat on the chair with his bare hands, motionless, and shot down all the bullets with six fingers. He surpassed his father’s reputation and became a giant scorpion kingdom The first master.
This is to say that taifan is strong, but he also has many weaknesses. Such as disorderly behavior, never measured, courageous, ambitious, bad character In the final analysis, he is a self willed and reckless bad youth.
After listening to Russell’s words, Xinran was more than three points in favor of taifan, thinking that the boy’s behavior style was quite similar to mine, but he was a giant scorpion, otherwise he could make friends.
At this time, in the scorpion army under the city, taifan listened to Lola’s report, nodded with satisfaction, took out all the money in his pocket and gave it to her: “well done. Take this money to support the family. Tell you that men don’t gamble any more. If you can’t find a job, you can follow me. I will never treat him unfairly.”
Laura took the money and said with a smile, “thank you for your great reward, but My men don’t gamble. ”
“Then let him stop drinking, whoring, drug taking, cock fighting and horse racing. Since he has the cheek to let a horse come out to make money as a spy, he can’t be a gentleman?” Taifan said without being angry.
Lola did not expect the prince’s Royal Highness to be so funny, half jokingly said: “my men are busy doing great things, so I have to work out to earn some pocket money.”
“Wait a minute – how many men do you have
Taifan couldn’t believe it and asked, “aren’t you afraid that they know you are” stepping on four boats “and fighting with jealousy
Lola said with a proud smile: “my four men are brothers, father and son. They will never be jealous because of such little things, let alone fight.”
Taifan was astonished, thumbed up and praised: “you are strong! When you go home, don’t forget to pay my respects to your four men, and say that taifan, the big brother of the Tianfang green field black dragon club, envies them for asking for a violent wife
Lola laughed to herself and said, “yes, please.”
Bow down and step back.
Taifan waved his hand and yelled at his soldiers: “what’s wrong? Attack the city at once!”
The elite thousand had to move forward, cheerfully signaling that the column of exiles armed with bows and arrows went up to the head of the city and drew their bows at the advancing scorpion army.
“Shoot the arrow
Xinran commands the archers to gather the scorpion warriors into range.
At taifan’s command, all the elite warriors took off their shields and blocked them on their heads.
The arrows fell like raindrops under the city, and the archers fell on the ground like wheat in the wind. However, most of the elite warriors advanced safely under the cover of shields.
Time waits for no one. Originally, they planned to arm the archers with magic arrows. In that case, the shield would be vulnerable. However, the taifan army came too fast to make a large number of magic arrows, so they were forced to go to war.
Now is not the time for regret. Xinran again signals that the four giant brothers, who live on the tower of arrows, immediately drop huge stones and smash the scorpion warriors who are close to the city gate.
The giant is the best at throwing stones. The boulders thrown by the four brothers are not only powerful, but also have magic effect. After hitting the target, they will fly back to the arrow tower automatically and reuse them. They will never be short of ammunition. The four brothers are at the commanding height, and they are born with divine power. The stones they throw are accurate and fierce. Their range almost covers the whole scorpion army. They really want to hit whoever they want, and there is no way to avoid it. As for the small iron shield, it was not too bad to resist the ordinary arrows. To resist the boulder, it was the real one. The most popular of the four brothers, Neng, was able to see that taifan was the commander in chief of the enemy, so he threw a boulder in the round arm.
Faced with a huge stone falling like a meteor, taifan raised his hand and shot out a slender, crimson finger sword. After hitting the rock, his internal power burst out and was blown to pieces. On the head of the city, seeing this scene, he could not help but praise himself, “scarlet needle” is really powerful.
When the scorpion elite warrior finds out that the commander has been attacked, he roars with anger, and the attack becomes more and more fierce. An elite Samurai immediately threw a spear with color and ran straight to shoot it.
Yulia grabs her body, bows and arrows. The first shot was an empty string, and there was no arrow. The air shock wave created by the bow string only shot down the spear flying in the face. The second shot used the burst Magic Arrow. The point of the arrow flies to the giant scorpion warrior who attacks Xinran. The warrior flung his shield against it.
DUK – the magic arrow hit the shield, and then exploded, blowing the warrior and all the enemies within three feet around him into the western sky.
Taking advantage of the victory, Yulia shot ten arrows in a row and fell into the densest places of the enemy. At least dozens of people were killed by Yulia’s arrow.
The power of the burst bow shocked the attacking troops, and they all retreated to both sides of the city gate, preferring to be gathered by the giant’s stones, rather than try Yulia’s Magic Arrow bombing. In surprise, taifan glanced at the head of the city, turned and retreated to the rear of the army. Although he has the ability to break through boulders, he does not dare to face the sniping of magic arrows.
Around the outer side of the city wall is a moat ten feet deep and nine feet wide. The ditch is filled with oil. When the siege troops break through the arrow net, they happily throw down a torch to ignite the oil. The moat turns into a sea of fire, and the burning flames stop the scorpion Army.
Taifan did not show weakness and ordered the attack to continue. The well-trained elite warriors quickly took off their shields and assembled them into a bridge, built them over the sea of fire, and then shoveled a large amount of sand into the moat, weakening the fire, jumping onto the “shield bridge” to cross the sea of fire and continue to attack the city.
The scorpion Samurai finally attacked the city. However, there was no crash and no ladder. They could neither destroy the gate nor climb the wall. It seemed that they were busy. However, at this time, the giant scorpion showed amazing national characteristics – they even climbed up vertically along the wall!
All city defenders, including Xinran, have overlooked one thing – Scorpions can climb walls.
The scorpion warrior has four pairs of claws on his lower limbs. The sharp point of the claws is as sharp as a hook. It can easily climb up the smooth stone wall with the help of a slit.
The scorpion warrior, with his shield on his head and his spear in his hand, scrambled to climb up the wall, and his scalp felt numb. This chilling sight you can never see when a human army attacks a city. This is the sub human race superiority to the human race, lets the city keeper both fear and helpless.
Russell, noticing the difference in his countenance, slapped him on the shoulder and said in a loud voice, “brother, order us to prepare for hand to hand combat – we may not lose yet!”
Xinran takes a deep breath and shouts loudly to make the archers retreat and the trolls move forward. The impatient column of trolls roared up and attacked the scorpion warrior who had fallen over the wall. These bloodthirsty Warcraft, who were born to be warlike, finally found a chance to vent their anger. They waved their long and powerful arms and tore the scorpion warrior to pieces and threw them down the wall. Flesh and blood fell from the sky, as if it had been raining red.
The giant scorpion warrior did not flinch back. Relying on their mental and tactical advantages to make up for the lack of physical strength, the three formed a small formation, which was connected into a large array, echoed back and forth, cooperated with the attack while defending, and pushed steadily toward the gate of the city – the purpose was to cut off the iron cord and put down the gate. However, under the resistance of the trolls, the attack was not smooth. If it was not for the continuous supply of troops at the head of the city, the elite soldiers forced to break in would have been surrounded and killed by the trolls who could hardly be killed.
Xinran Ran Ran under the city gate to command. He found many barrels piled up in the corner of the wall. When he opened it, it was full of oil. This reminds me of Lola’s prophecy last night, with a flash of light in her brain and a good way to deal with the scorpion.
In the city, taifan watched the battle in the Chinese army, and found that the main force of his army had attacked the city head. He felt that the general situation had been decided. Then, as long as the gate was opened, he could lead the commander of the army to march in and cooperate with the leading troops in the city to wipe out the rebels in one fell swoop.
The more he thought about it, the more satisfied he was, so he asked the chief of staff of PigHead to prepare lunch. From then on, he took out the washing utensils from his luggage. He held a water cup in his left hand and a toothbrush in his right hand. He brushed his teeth while watching the two armies fighting on the battlefield.
Looking up, it seems that the siege situation is not good. The army guarding the city did not know where to get many large wooden barrels. They poured barrels of black sticky ointment on the walls of the city, which was sticky and slippery. The scorpion warrior could not stand on the ground, and the attack was blocked.
The troll column in the city also tightened the encirclement circle. Due to the obstruction of reinforcements, the scorpion warriors in the city had to give up the capture of the gate and barely maintain a foothold.
If the scorpion warrior stabs with a spear, the spear tip will stay in the troll’s hands, which means that the weapon will be abandoned. The rest of the trolls will take the opportunity to smash the unarmed scorpion warriors alive with flint sticks.
Once the triangle formation is broken, the remaining two will have to fight on their own. One on one, the scorpion warrior is not a troll opponent. The last killer “poison needle” can’t cause fatal damage to these thick skinned Big Macs, so they have to go back to the city and escape from the wall one after another.
Unexpectedly, it was easy to come up and difficult to go down. As soon as his hands and feet touched the wall, he was stuck with asphalt and couldn’t move.
Xinran took the opportunity to order the fire to be set on. The wall smeared with oil turned into a flame screen. The scorpion warriors stuck on it struggled in the fire, and most of them died miserably. The rest of them cut off their legs and feet to escape and jumped down the wall with fire all over their bodies, just like a living version of hell change painted on the screen: “Gulu Gulu ~ ~ bah!”
Taifan sprayed mouthwash on the sand, took off the towel hanging around his neck, wiped his mouth, and yelled: “stop the attack, the whole army will withdraw!”
“Your Highness – we can’t withdraw our troops,” pig said wisely. “With one more effort, our army can conquer the enemy camp!”
Taifan said leisurely: “attack the city first put aside, the sky is big, eat the biggest! I’m going to eat now. I’ll wait until I’ve finished. ”
“Cook, bring me my cold noodles,” he called
A fireman with a white hat pushed to the dining car. There was only a white jade bowl the size of a washbasin on it. A sharp bowl of sliced noodles mixed with broken ice made a white fog in the sun.
Taifan moved to the chair and sat down, holding a bowl in his right hand and stretching out his left hand. The chief of staff of PigHead took a glass bottle from his left pocket and gave it to him. It contained special chili oil, which was his favorite.
Taifan poured a full bottle of chili oil into the bowl, dropped the empty bottle and held out his hand. Pig head took out another glass bottle of rice vinegar from his right pocket and gave it to him.
Taifan also poured vinegar into the bowl, took the fork to mix the noodles and seasonings evenly, immersed himself in eating, and in a flash ate a bowl of hot and sour cold noodles clean, wiped the sweat, and sighed contentedly: “as long as you can eat a bowl of sour and spicy noodles every day, you are not a prince
After eating the cold noodles, taifan ordered to continue attacking the city: “pull out the rape and minor attacks. It’s time for them to come out.”
“Your Highness, it’s the” strong fighter “and the” strong attacker “. You can nickname the mechanical armor at will. People with impure heart will misunderstand it.”
Tai fan impatiently waved his hand: “less nonsense, quickly pull it out for me.”
Two giant cannons with crawlers are coming out in line. One is painted red, and the gun barrel is painted with a group of flame signs, which is “strong fighter” and the other is blue. The cannon barrel is painted with lightning shaped emblem. It is the “attacker”. These two self-propelled cannons are artificial intelligence weapons that do not need human control. They are unique to the giant scorpion kingdom. Queen Catherine personally developed and supervised them Special mechanical armor for siege.
In Zhongzhou, there are few mechanics who master the technology of artificial intelligence. Among them, the most famous one is Alexander of the Holy Grail. As for why Catherine also has this profound secret skill, there is another secret.
In full view of the public, two cannons aimed at the city gate, and the war was imminent.
