Chapter 588: Special Treatment (2)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The next morning, soldiers from the Wolf Smoke Regiment rose early for their morning training.
Even with the change in their location, none of the soldiers dared to defy the rules set down by Ji Fengyan.
Both the Green Nightmare Army and the Blaze Army were the elite troops of the Kingdom—and the Wolf Smoke Regiment was feeling the pressure to perform. They fervently wished for more time to train so that they would not sully the reputation of their General.
Ji Fengyan stepped out of her tent to see a bunch of sweaty soldiers running pass. A few of the more daring ones even greeted her.
A commotion suddenly shattered the peace within the camp.
Ji Fengyan’s eyes shifted as she saw Linghe hurrying over from the direction of the commotion.
The soldiers who were training nearby had also paused and looked questioningly at Linghe.
“What’s the matter?” Ji Fengyan asked.
Linghe frowned. “Reporting to General, it’s the men from the Blaze Army.”
“Blaze Army?” Ji Fengyan was slightly shocked.
“It appears that some of the Blaze Army soldiers on patrol were attacked. They have just returned and there are quite a number of injuries.”
Ji Fengyan narrowed her eyes.
The purpose of the three-army alliance was to regain the Plain of Corpses. The earlier battle had dragged on for years only to yield a portion of the territory. The consecutive years of war had resulted in substantial losses to the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon. As a result, they eventually halted their campaign to recuperate. The demons had also overexerted their own resources and had stopped their attacks for some time.
Nevertheless, the demons’ standstill was just a temporary thing.
There had always been unrest at the Plain of Corpses. The nearby villages suffered frequent demon attacks and as time passed, the demon activity in the area had ballooned.
One of the villages had already undergone a bloody massacre.
That was why…
This time, the Emperor had summoned three armies to the Plain of Corpses to regain complete control of the entire plains.
Ji Fengyan rushed to the entrance of the camp with Linghe and some other soldiers in tow.
Over a dozen Blaze Army Soldiers were collapsed outside the entrance. They were full of injuries and stained all over with blood. Their armour had also suffered major damage.
Even the dirt beneath them had been soaked in blood.
“Men! Quickly come!” One of the severely injured Blaze Army soldiers shouted as he propped up his unconscious comrade.
His shouts had attracted several other soldiers in the camp.
“What are you all doing just standing there!” An imperious voice suddenly rang out.
Zhan Fei walked out from behind the crowd and glanced at those injured Blaze Army soldiers.
As the Blaze Army’s camp was situated in the center and some distance away, most of the soldiers at the scene were from the Green Nightmare Army.
The bloodied soldiers felt a sense of relief on seeing Zhan Fei. “Lord Zhan! We were ambushed by demons and suffered serious injuries. Please send reinforcements to save our brothers who are still trapped there!”
Zhan Fei frowned as he passed a sweeping glance over the bunch. He also took in Ji Fengyan and company from the corner of his eyes. A venomous glint flashed across his eyes as he glared at the pleading soldier. “How dare you create such a ruckus in the camp? Didn’t your General Yang teach you guys proper etiquette?”
