Being the Chieftain of a Moe Tribe - Chapter 38
The crowd immediately split into groups of dozens of people. Under Li’s lead, they took a large number of arrows and walked deeper into the fog.
“Rui, what should we do, meow?”
The great battle was about to occur. As a result, Yuan couldn’t help but feel a bit nervous.
Fu Rui patted her on the back to appease her. Then, he said, “The rest of you, take out your spears and set up defenses at the newly built watchtower in the village. Once you find any traces of porcupine scouts, shoot them down without mercy!”
“Yes, Lord Village Chief!”
The village had covered a large area during this period of construction.
Under the cover of the dense fog, it was very difficult to judge the entire area with one’s vision alone.
However, there were pros and cons to this.
They could not see what was happening outside. However, it was definitely the same for the porcupine scouts.
With limited vision, the effect of the traps would be infinitely magnified.
The trenches outside the village would be the slaughterhouse for the porcupine scouts.
All that was left was to wait.
Fu Rui took out the bamboo whistle again and blew a combination of a long whistle and a short whistle. Then, he blew another two whistles.
These two prefixes represented the two teams. The whistle was a signal for Xia and Wei Wei to retreat and lead their subordinates back to the village.
To prevent them from losing their way in the fog, he would blow a whistle every once in a while. On the eighth blow, Wei Wei finally appeared not far away.
“How’s the situation?” Fu Rui hurriedly asked.
Wei Wei had been running throughout. Thus, she was exhausted and out of breath. “It’s… it’s the scouts from the porcupine tribe. They’re here, assembling just outside the trenches.”
Yuan quickly handed her a glass of water.
Wei Wei finished it in one gulp and took a few deep breaths before calming down.
Fu Rui was not in a hurry after hearing Wei Wei’s message.
However, Xi Xi couldn’t help but feel curious upon seeing his calm expression. “The porcupine tribe is just outside your village. What are you going to do about it?”
“I’m going to ignore them.”
“Did you ask Li to bring some people out because you knew that the village was going to fall?” Xi Xi speculated.
Fu Rui’s gaze suddenly became sharp and he raised his head, “If you have good intentions for the beast-eared tribe, I advise you not to disturb the morale of the tribe.”
Xi Xi’s aura was instantly greatly diminished by his powerful glare. “Why are you so fierce? Hmph…”
Fu Rui ignored her and closed his eyes to rest.
After a while, Xia returned with her team.
The news she brought was similar to Wei Wei’s. A large number of members from the porcupine tribe had gathered outside. There were at least a few hundred porcupines present, several times more than them.
The good news was that the enemy’s vanguard army had been killed in batches by the trenches outside, causing heavy casualties.
The other party must have heard Fu Rui’s whistle and moved towards their position, thus falling into the hidden traps.
This was all part of Fu Rui’s plan. He waited for a while more. About ten minutes later, urgent whistles came from the north of the village.
It still meant that they needed reinforcements. Thus, Fu Rui waved his hand. “Let’s go meet the porcupine tribe!”
More than twenty beast-eared girls mightily followed him.
Everyone was equipped with two spears, but no bows.
They could hear the porcupine scouts shouting from afar.
Immediately after, there was the sound of metal objects hitting the barriers.
The beast-eared females on the watchtowers nearby began throwing spears to defend themselves, but there were little results.
The porcupine scouts’ backs were filled with spikes. They were offensive, but also provided strong defensive capabilities.
Every time the beast-eared females raised their spears and threw the spears at them, they would curl up their bodies and use their hardest parts to block the attacks.
After a few rounds of attacks, most of the spears on the watchtower had been thrown away, but the porcupines below had only lost a few unlucky ones.
The porcupine scouts swung their huge spiked maces and smashed into the barriers. Although it was impossible to break through the barriers in a short period of time, defending to the death was no longer a long-term solution.
Seeing this, Fu Rui grabbed a spear from the hands of a beast-eared female beside him and threw it.
After strengthening his physique two times, his strength was exceptionally terrifying.
The stone spear flew past rapidly. It even produced explosive sounds as it rubbed against the air.
In the next moment, it pierced through the forehead of a porcupine!
The surrounding porcupine scouts were shocked by this scene. Why did the beast-eared tribe suddenly have such fierce firepower?
Just as they hesitated, a deep growl came from the fog.
This voice was like a stab to the heart. A few porcupines that were intimidated by Fu Rui brandished their maces again and smashed onto the barrier.
Perhaps that was the king of the porcupine tribe?
Fu Rui threw out a few more spears in succession, piercing through the heads of several porcupines in succession. However, the entire battlefront was in imminent danger, so these few attacks weren’t very useful for the overall situation.
It was a pity that their leader didn’t show his face. Otherwise, he would directly kill their leader. He wanted to see if those stupid porcupine would still dare to be so arrogant.
“Retreat, move closer to where Li is.” Fu Rui immediately ordered.
The beast-eared girls on the watchtower retreated one after another. Without the suppression from their attacks, the porcupine scouts smashed the barriers even more recklessly. There were already holes in many places.
Fu Rui stood at the back of the evacuating team with a few spears in his hands.
The beast-eared females had a strong physique, and the eagle girl could fly on her own. Thus, with his obstruction, the retreating team soon pulled away from the porcupine scouts.
Dozens of angry porcupines charged forward one after another, roaring and attacking Fu Rui.
“These people from the beast-eared tribe are as weak as the eagle-bodied tribe. Although they used some tricks to kill many of our brothers, now is the time for us to cut off their beautiful heads!”
“For the tribe!”
They were shouting in a language that Fu Rui couldn’t understand, and rushed over while shouting.
However, he was not going to stand there and fight them head-on. After strengthening his body, he increased his speed to its peak. Then, he caught up with Wei Wei and the rest in no time.
“Blow a whistle to notify Li and the others that we’re going over.”
Tu Tu immediately did this for him on the way.
Soon, a reply came from nearby.
“It’s in that direction! Pay attention to the trenches we dug ourselves. There are markers beside them. Don’t fall down. You’ll die!”
Fu Rui looked back at the same time as he instructed. At this moment, the sun had already risen and dispersed a portion of the fog. He could vaguely see a large number of porcupine scouts chasing them relentlessly from behind.
“Continue chasing us. If you keep chasing us, you will encounter your burial ground up ahead!”
Coldness flashed across Fu Rui’s eyes, and he quickened his steps.
A distance of a kilometer was not far. Thus, they arrived in the village in the blink of an eye after sprinting at full speed.
At this moment, the miserable cries of the porcupines could be heard from the trenches behind them. It was obvious that they had chased too closely and had fallen into Fu Rui’s trap once again.
It was time for the beast-eared tribe to chase after victory!
Fu Rui asked all the beast-eared females to take the bows that Li had brought over. They each equipped themselves with a certain number of venom-soaked arrows and turned around to rush towards the trenches.
At the trenches, a large number of porcupines were trapped and did not dare to move forward easily.
Fu Rui brought all the beast-eared females to a place about 100 meters away from the target location. “Shoot all your arrows!”
In fact, the simultaneous shooting by the beast-eared tribe was far from reaching the level of ten thousand arrows shooting at once. However, with over a hundred arrows flying in a parabolic trajectory, when they fell into the herd of porcupines, their killing effect was not to be underestimated.
What was worse was that the bows were loaded very quickly. As a result, the skilled beast-eared females could shoot two to three arrows in a second. Any porcupine that got scratched by the arrows would have a fatal wound.
Under the dense attack, swarms of porcupines fell one after another like wheat being cut.
