Overgod Ascension - Chapter 56: Greedy Wolf
Chapter 56: Greedy Wolf
This chapter is updated by Unboxbee.com
The army was defeated and Cao Du who was the chief general was hit by an arrow. He fell to the ground, coughing blood, his life, and death unknown.
At this time, many defeated soldiers flocked to the city gates, anxious to enter the city. Reddened by blood, in order to fight for a gleam of life, there are even people fighting against their old comrades.
Wu Ming's eyes flashed and with his squadron, followed the marauders.
"Quick! Quick! Close the city gate!"
A few officials were in a hurry but there were a lot of marauders outside, how many of them were willing to obey, leaving their gowns, friends, and relatives outside?
At a critical moment, Wu Ming took the lead, his sword flashed in succession and then, he brought up the head: "Surrender or death!"
Behind him, Zhong Ting, Niu Yong, and several soldiers with Wu Ming as the spearhead, kept rushing and screaming: "Surrender or death!"
"I'm waiting to surrender!"
"I'm waiting to surrender!"
Many defeated soldiers who lost their will yelled and abandoned their weapons.
"First boarder! Team Leader Wu Ming!"
It took two or three steps for Wu Ming to directly rush to the city, chop off the original flag and replaced it with the Nine Mountains flag, and then shouted again.
The three armies cheered together and with Cao Jun's surrender, the overall situation has been determined.
At this moment, Li Rubi who was drinking water almost spat: "This person again?!"
He called his confidant: "How do we calculate the merit of being the first to break into the city?"
The man hesitated: "It's difficult to attack the city, the first one will rise by one rank! Moreover, it is still a county city, not a small city. According to the system, you'll add another rank…"
There was even more struggle in his face: "The most important thing is… Commander, before your departure, you've said that the one who breaks into the city will be promoted by three consecutive ranks and everyone in the army knows it…"
Li Rubi and the people around him looked at each other in dismay: "After killing the cavalry general, he had been promoted to Batallion Leader but now I have to promote him by three more ranks? Passing Vice-Guard General, Guard General… Do you want him to be directly promoted to Deputy Commander?"
"Commander! This person is just a Squadron Leader. Promoting him to Battalion Leader is already a great grace. Pressuring down is now your way of caring and preservation!"
At that time. a tooth soldier's eyes brightened and came out to talk
"It's the same reason…"
Li Rubi hesitated for a while: "However, this commander is not a distrustful person! Previously, the army passed orders… Let's do this! Count the beheading of general from before with the merit of breaking into the city which elevates him by four ranks which is Guard General… Just in the Xie Mountain, wasn't the Guard General killed in battle? Let's just give it to him!"
At this time, the people around him were still a little jealous.
But breaking the city and killing a general is a real accomplishment. With so many eyes watching and the patriarch being happy and fair, he might see the Squadron Leader as lucky and would not try to scrap that mold.
In the battle of Zhending County, the Nine Mountains Army defeated the state soldiers, killed a thousand, captured two thousand, and even breached Zhending County. The defender Cao Du was seriously injured. He was escorted by a loyal and faithful confidant and desperately broke through the back door.
There was also good news in several other directions. It was either the news of cities being broken through or how many state soldiers were destroyed. The situation was very good.
That night, after cleaning up the county city, Li Rubi moved into the city and set up a huge feast to entertain the soldiers and reward meritorious officials.
"Subordinate Wu Ming meets the commander!"
As the most meritious of them all, Wu Ming was naturally attached with importance and was the first to meet him.
Wu Ming walked into the hall and felt horrible pressure around him. Knowing that it must be the Master of the Guards' doing, he did not care. Observing the nose with the eye, observing from the heart with the nose, he respectfully saluted.
"Well! You are Wu Ming who killed the general and broke the city? Get up!"
Li Rubi waved his hand and looked at Wu Ming.
Wu Ming secretly opened his Spiritual Eye and his heart trembled.
Around Li Rubi, the golden qi was rolling in like a tide and formed lush blue qi. The center had a faint black and purple qi which was even more extraordinary.
'It is rumored that this person possessed Dragon Veins. Maybe it is not groundless. After all, this kind of luck is definitely not something that a few counties can accumulate… It is just with this black qi, there will be a great tribulation and it will be difficult to become king…'
Wu Ming's heart moved.
At this time, the Spiritual Eye continued to work and it reached its limit, he found something.
In the midst of wolves' howls, Li Rubi's Luck Qi on top of his head returned to the stars. Amidst the brilliance of the stars, a starlight several times stronger than the lieutenant's Breaking Army fate came down.
In the brilliance, Li Rubi's face seemed to change. He had the gaze of a hawk and the head of a wolf and Luck Qi turned into a dragon-like wolf monster. The whole body was pitch black and the eyes purple.
'Fate of the Greedy Wolf! Sure enough, this person has the fate of the Greedy Wolf and can be said to be the reincarnation of a star!'
Seeing the wolf's eye moving, Wu Ming quickly withdrew his magical powers and did not dare to look again.
Li Rubi didn't feel much. He still said: "… You have made a great contribution and will be rewarded. I will promote you by four ranks and appoint you as the Seventh Grade Fruit Captain  with 500 men under your command and still under the jurisdiction of Xie Mountain!"
"Thank you for your great grace, commander. This subordinate will work hard in return!"
Wu Ming sighed in his heart; the duck that is the position of the deputy commander just flew away. But he knew that it was common sense and even being able to become a Guard Leader is already the result of the other party's high opinion of him.
After all, there are only nine commanders in the entire Nine Mountains Army and there are two-to-three under one capital and more than five, six or more Guard Generals. This is already a high-level general with real power.
At this moment, Wu Ming saw a burst of Scarlet Qi which was split from Li Rubi's head and injected into his own luck.
With this help, his daoist cultivation method has improved by leaps and bounds.
"You can go back to rest for a few days first and then complete your guard of soldiers. There will be a big battle in the near future, this commander is looking forward to your performance!"
Li Rubi made a few more gentle words before sending Wu Ming away.
"Master Guard General! Congratulations!"
"Come, Captain Wu, this young one offer a toast. I will drink first but you are free to do as you please!"
"Master Guard General , this villain has a daughter with a beautiful face and appearance. She is willing to become your pillow, I hope that you accept it…"
As soon as he came out, the enthusiasm and noise almost drowned Wu Ming.
Looking at the flattering, enthusiastic, or disdainful faces as well as diametrically opposite faces colluding for his luck, Wu Ming sneered in his heart.
However, on the surface, he still greeted them politely and it wasn't before three-quarters of the Zi hour  that he was able to leave.
"You… you… you…"
Before the reward distribution, it seemed that this mansion belonged to a certain high-ranking official. He saw Xiao Jidu coming out and looking at him as if he was a monster.
"Actually moving up by 4 ranks, directly promoted to Guard General!"
Xiao Ji clicked his tongue in amazement: "Compared to my boss Liu, it's only two ranks worse. You're really amazing!"
Saying that, he gave a thumbs up.
"Above Guard General, it's very difficult to accumulate merits for a promotion. As for commanders, they are all Li Rubi's confidants. How can I, an outsider, join the group?"
Wu Ming smiled bitterly: "This time is but luck!"
Of course, he can see his fate, knowing the first opportunity and then taking advantage of it to arrange things but there is no need to mention this.
"Don't talk about it. You have seen Li Rubi, how is the appearance of his qi?"
Xiaodi, next to him, asked about the key points.
"How can I see it so clearly…" Wu Ming smiled bitterly, before turning serious again: "But… this person has the fate of the Greedy Wolf, it's already certain!"
"Greedy Wolf Fate…"
Xie Xiaodi pinched her finger, calculated, and shook her head: "Although the luck is still strong, it falls short of reaching the throne and becoming king. Unless the state city is captured and Caozhou is unified…"
"This is troublesome…"
Xiao Jidu's expression was a little strange: "I've got a piece of news, from another person. Can you guess who it is?"
"It's impossible to be Yuan Tai since he died in battle. Is it Yu Shaojun?"
Wu Ming said.
The newbie Reincarnator was not good at martial arts and followed Wu Ming several times to charge. However, he was unlucky to be hit by an arrow in the middle of the operation and died on the spot.
"Yes, do you know where this person has gone?"
Xiao Jidu's face flushed with an expression of 'please come and ask me' and 'hurry, ask me'.
After waiting for a long time, seeing that Wu Ming and Xie Xiaodi still remained unmoved, he could only helplessly say: "I just learned that this person actually mixed up with Perfected Nanshang and became a Daoist child…"
"Do you know why the Great Commander and the Black Mountains who were supposed to block reinforcements and wait for an opportunity to raid the state city appear here? It is because True Daoist Nanshan brought the news… that Imperial General Wang Xuanfan has rushed forward with 6000 elites into the state city. With this person here, no matter how arrogant Li Rubi is, he must give up his plans!
Xiao Jidu scratched his nose and continued: "And… I've also heard that Wang Xiaofan not only has the Martial Song Fate but also managed to get the Star of the Land. Commander Li Rubi finally met his match this time…"
An ancient book called "The Purple Star Astrology" read as follows: "With the Martial Song star situated on the top on the palace chart structure, and born at 11 pm. It can be said that one can obtain the lands through the help of the stars just as how the carp obtained the water and became a legendary dragon to enter the sea, one can rise up to become an outstanding famous general."
Xie Xiaodi solemnly said: "I have seen it in my family's book collection. Everyone whose fate is linked to the stars is a peerless general in the world… Originally, the Martial Song star is a little worse than the Greedy Wolf star but with this fate, it is hard to say…"
"Also… this world's court has not declined and Wang Xuanfan came this time with an imperial decree to crusade against the rebellion. He has the righteousness and the support of the True Dragon Emperor…"
Wu Ming added.
"Are we finished…"
Xiao Jidu said in anguish.
"Not necessarily, the Overgod Palce's Mission is just to assist Li Rubi claiming kingship!"
Wu Ming revealed a strange smile: "That is to say… as long as this person is called king, even if it's just one day, it will be considered a success!"
Xie Xiaodi's eyes lit up: "If Li Rubi now claims to be king, even if it's just one city and land, the Mission will be considered completed!"
"Otherwise, wouldn't the Mission be too difficult?"
Wu Ming shrugged.
Xie Xiaodi and Xiao Jidu thought for a moment and felt that they entered a dead end.
No matter the point of view, if you want to be king, you need to occupy a state before barely establishing a kingdom.
However, if it is rushed before a major event is concluded, you can only be regarded as a grass-root king in a troubled world. Not only is it useless, but it also great harm and makes the foundation vain.
But what does Li Rubi's broken foundation have to do with them?
: 狼顾鹰视, Chinese idiom very hard to translate. It means the look of a wolf looking back e. i a cautious and cunning wolf.
: 致果校尉, Lit. Fruit Captain. According to Baidu, it is a Tang and Song dynasty's position in the Seventh Grade.
: I've replaced the word 'daren', honorifics to address one's superiors to master. Tell me in the comments if you like it better.
Note to self: It can also be made into My Lord, Your Highness, and Your Excellency…
Zi hour: Period between 23:00-1:00.
: Thank you to Ayer, emiliers, Solkage and xuxunette for the help!
