Chapter 231 – The End of the Fight Pt. 1
Suo Jia swept his gaze around, then nodded in satisfaction. If he continued on this way, the enemy might realize…perhaps now was the best time to act.
Suo Jia suddenly stopped his bombardment of magic attacks. He took a deep breath and suddenly rose into the air. After reaching a certain height, his feet lit up, and his body stood straight in a strange position in mid-air. At the same time, his voice powerfully declared, “General Jason, it’s time to act.”
“Creak, creak….hum…” A bunch of creaking sounds, as well as the sharp whistling of a rain of arrows, shook the earth and the skies. The ear-splitting shriek of 70,000 sharp arrows being shot wasn’t something a normal person could imagine.
The enemy automatically raised their heads to look at the sky. Actually, not looking at it might have been better, as now, they were frightened out of their wits. The dense rain of arrows completely covered the sky from view, and that black mass charged down towards the ground.
At that moment, everyone suddenly realized that…at some point, they had already been led on by Suo Jia’s group, and entered the gates of Hell: the 300 meter death zone in front of Dawn’s walls.
Currently…the enemy was around 250 meters from Dawn. This distance was Dawn Army’s greatest shooting range. After being in the air for so long, the force behind the arrows was its greatest. Its might had increased by at least twofold compared to when it had been shot from 100 meters away.
Faced with incoming death, the enemy experts didn’t bother trying to surround the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes anymore. To them, escaping alive was already God’s blessing. In that moment, the experts all frantically turned around and leapt towards the opposite direction.
However, was this place really that easy to run away from? The net of arrows that the 70,000 archers had placed already covered 250-300 meters of area. Moreover, the probability of being able to instantly cross 50 meters was 0%. Even the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes were unable to do that.
When Suo Jia lifted his head and saw the endless shower of arrows. Suo Jia quickly landed on the ground, and at the same time, without any need for his commands, the 36 girls landed around him. Like flower petals, they surrounded Suo Jia tightly to protect him in the center.
The 36 Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had formed an exceptionally beautiful red and gold flower. As for Suo Jia, he had leisurely closed his eyes as he smelled the girls’ fragrance. He didn’t know when it had started, but he loved their fresh, clean, and simple scents. He was intoxicated whenever he inhaled it, breathed it…..
Was the arrow shower just a single wave? No, no, no….how could it possibly be that short. Dawn Army’s archers always had the same standard: as long as there was still an enemy standing on the battlefield, they wouldn’t stop shooting. Unless the higher-ups gave the command, they were to keep shooting wildly until each enemy was shot down.
This excessive attack method would’ve definitely been impossible for any other army to follow. However, this was Dawn. Within 3 years, these refined iron arrows could be maintained for free. If they broke, they could be replaced. It was to the point where they could just immediately break them from usage.
In addition, these refined iron arrows couldn’t really be broken if they were shot to this extent. Even if they didn’t hit a person, they’d end up buried into the ground without any damage. That being the case, why not just shoot them all? It was like training.
After the first wave, Dawn’s archers began to fire freely. The air filled with arrows never faded. The area around Suo Jia and the girls was especially well taken care of, since there were nearly 200 enemy experts in their vicinity.
The enemy experts were indeed extremely skilled, at least two times more skilled than the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes. However…they didn’t have Six-Winged Heavenly clothes; their armors were entirely unable to block the concentrated arrow attacks. They struggled to block the arrows by waving their weapons around for a while, but were finally unable to keep up with the high frequency attacks. The dense storm of arrows shot the enemy down one after another…their bodies were pierced by dozens of refined arrows as they fell to the ground, looking like porcupines.
The surrounding area about a dozen meters around Suo Jia and the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes was being controlled by the 10,000 regular slave soldier archers. This was firstly done in order to kill much of the enemy, and secondly so that their accuracy was high enough to avoid hitting the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes as much as possible.
But despite this, the distance between them was still too great. Because the slave archers were currently around 300 meters away, they couldn’t maintain their accuracy. If they shot purposely, they might not be able to hit their target. But the more they evaded, the more likely the shower of arrows would hit the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes
Fortunately, the Six-Winged Heavenly Clothes was really very powerful. Aside from the sound of metal clashing on metal, they weren’t affected at all. The Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes only felt like their bodies were standing in a storm. They felt powerful vibrations and shocks, but not much pain. After all…these arrows didn’t contain battle qi.
Finally, only 37 figures remained standing within the shooting range. Only then did the slave soldier archers stop in satisfaction. It wasn’t because they wanted to let the enemy go, but because those 37 figures were Suo Jia and the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes; who would dare to continue shooting?
After sensing that the arrows had stopped, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes all relaxed their arms, and Suo Jia’s figure was revealed once more. As he looked at the bitter scene around him, he couldn’t help but smile. The experts that had been violently attacking them just now had all become corpses, strewn messily on the area around Suo Jia.
“Whoosh…” Just then, a fierce wind blew, and a corpse on the ground suddenly convulsed. A strong and robust figure quickly jumped out from below the corpse. The figure’s hand flashed dangerously as it stabbed out towards Suo Jia’s abdomen.
Without having anticipated a situation like this, nobody had even had the time to react. On the other hand, the enemy was extremely fast. In an instant, he managed to activate an explosive attack. By the time everyone had realized what was happening, the opposite party’s dagger had already deeply embedded into Suo Jia’s abdomen.
After this scene, the battlefield was completely silent for a moment. Both the distant enemy troops and the Dawn Army soldiers on the city walls were completely stunned. Nobody had imagined that such a theatrical scene would unfold.
“Pfft…” Suo Jia spat out a mouthful of blood towards the sky, the droplets raining down heavily. Trembling, he grabbed onto the other party’s arm and said in pain, “F*ck, who did I provoke? Why did you exert all your strength onto my stomach.”
The black-clothed person stared at Suo Jia in shock, his body shaking as he said, “Why. Why. It shouldn’t be like this, it definitely shouldn’t be like this.”
“Hehe…” With a dark smirk, Suo Jia instantly activated Freezing Touch through the opposite party’s right hand firmly in his grasp. At the same time, he said in a heavy voice, “There aren’t that many ‘why’s’. Do you think I’m a fool? Why would I ever tell you this secret.”
Soon afterwards, thick layers of ice quickly condensed around the black-clothed thief’s body. This was the effect of Freezing Touch. Even if the target wasn’t frozen, they couldn’t escape their fate of being sealed by the ice. If they wanted to get out, they’d have to break all of these layers.
Suo Jia loosened his right grip and angrily shouted, “What are you guys still looking at? This bastard hasn’t died yet. Drag him back; there are many matters that I need to hear from his mouth.”
The Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes finally returned to their sense. It was only then that they had suddenly remember that…Suo Jia still had a skin-tight Monarch Armor on his body.
The Monarch Armor was crafted from a material even better than the one from the Six-Winged Heavenly Clothes. In addition, the inside of it was lined with Black Dragon scales. It pretty much negated physical and magical attacks. However, as a soft armor, it had no way of blocking the force behind attacks, which was why Suo Jia had spat out blood.
After shattering the ice layers, Suo Jia and the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes dragged the black-clothed thief towards Dawn City’s walls in front of the thousands of soldiers. They were completely unconcerned about the enemy pursuing them; with Dawn’s archer troops, who dared to just wildly charge forwards?
