“General, we don’t have enough medicinal herbs.”
“General, we’ve used up all the stones and logs in our city.”
“General, five of our catapults have been destroyed.”
When Xiao Li returned from the kitchen, he saw five generals surrounding Xiao Qirui’s tent and reporting the situation in the city at the top of their lungs. He was so angry that his eyes turned red.
“It wasn’t easy for the general to rest. Why are you arguing here?”
For the past four days, Xiao Qirui had personally led his men to guard the city tower every time the Wu Kingdom’s army attacked the city.
After the battle, he had to arrange for everyone to clean up the battlefield. Not only did he not rest, but he was also injured several times. Just now, he was even carried back. These people ran down to disturb his rest. Xiao Li really wanted to kill them.
“Guard Xiao, it’s not that we don’t understand the general, but we can’t delay these things.”
A violent cough sounded in the tent. Xiao Li was shocked and quickly rushed in. The remaining people also wanted to follow, but they were stopped by a group of soldiers.
“How dare you!” the leading general shouted.
“I think you’re the ones who’re presumptuous.” A crisp shout sounded.
Everyone looked in the direction of the voice and saw a petite youth walking towards them with an angry expression.
Recognizing who it was, the five of them looked disdainful.
Song Jinghuan had been promoted from an ordinary soldier to a captain of a hundred people in just two months. Coupled with her previous competition with Liu Yang, they were naturally familiar with her.
However, so what? It was just a captain of a hundred men. Any one of them had a higher status than her. They really did not take her seriously.
“You’re so arrogant. I was wondering who it was.”
Song Jinghuan walked to the soldiers guarding the tent and stood in front of the five of them.
She imitated the other party’s sarcastic tone and mocked, “If you bark here, I’ll think that a mad dog has entered the military camp.”
“How dare you,” the leading general said angrily.
“Did I say something wrong?” Song Jinghuan sneered. “If I remember correctly, you’re all under General Meng, right? Instead of reporting something to
General Meng, you came here to disturb General Xiao’s rest.”
She paused. “If General Meng can’t even handle this, why don’t you let me be the general?”
Sun Hao and the others behind her were so shocked by her bold words that their eyes widened. Daredevil Song’s nickname was indeed accurate.
Liu Jinbao was so frightened that his legs went weak and he almost knelt down. “Even if you have this thought, don’t say it out loud. Can’t we just keep it to ourselves?” he thought.
The five people opposite him were also stunned. When they reacted, they shouted in unison, “How dare you!”
Song Jinghuan dug her ears impatiently. “How dare you, how impudent, how bold. It’s getting repetitive, can’t you use something else? Or did your General Meng only teach you to say these words?”
Not only did Meng Wu think highly of himself, but he also cared about his reputation. In the past, no matter how bold Song Jinghuan was, she wouldn’t have deliberately provoked him. She was really angry today.
Because Xiao Qirui had embarrassed Meng Linlang in public four days ago, not only did Meng Wu start to cause trouble for them, but he also made all kinds of mistakes during the defense of the city.
The generals from Chang’an were so busy that their feet did not touch the ground. Xiao Qirui was injured and did not have the time to recuperate. He fainted from exhaustion. Looking at these people, their faces were all red. Those who did not know better would think that they had won a battle and that their colleagues had not died in the past few days.
Others could tolerate it, but she couldn’t.
Being mocked by a brat who was not even as tall as their shoulders, the five of them couldn’t breathe. Their faces turned red.
“I think you’re tired of living. You’re offending your superiors. Guards, drag him away and behead him.” It was the leader who spoke first.
Immediately, a soldier received an order to go up and arrest Song Jinghuan.
Liu Jinbao jumped forward and blocked Song Jinghuan. Sun Hao and the others reacted and quickly surrounded her.
Song Jinghuan glanced at Liu Jinbao, who was trembling in fear but still blocking the way. She pursed her lips and pushed him away. He took out a token and walked forward. “Let’s see who dares to do that.”
“Let’s see who dares to do that.”
At the same time, the curtain behind him opened and Xiao Qirui, who was pale, walked out with Xiao Li’s help.
Seeing that his helpers had arrived, Song Jinghuan put away the token.
That was close!
Everyone subconsciously looked at Xiao Qirui, then at Song Jinghuan. They only saw a flash of gold, but they didn’t see what it was..
