Chapter 228 Backstab and Lien Battle
As the martial arts conference ended, the people from all walks of life scattered and left, and Chen Feng’s deeds of picking the eight major factions on Yunxia Mountain also spread to the rivers and lakes, alarming the Quartet.
After this battle, both Jianghu and Lulin finally recognized Chen Feng’s title as “the best master in the world”, and the limelight was no different for a while.
It was just Chen Feng’s act of taking away the secrets of various factions and horses. It was a wicked act. Seeing that he became the number one master, few famous people in the world could be happy.
Generally speaking, being recognized as the No. 1 master will be bragged and sought after by the rivers and lakes to some extent, but Chen Feng is a counter-example. He is not at all involved in being highly respected and admired, and he is more like a demon who can’t be ruled.
I don’t know how many Jianghusuji oldies are heartbroken, angrily denounced this as a catastrophe in the martial arts, and prayed that the heavens would accept this demon.
But in any case, Chen Feng’s martial arts have overwhelmed the contemporary generation, and he is the first person in hundreds of years. This is the consensus of the world, and no one doubts this anymore… Even if there are people who question it, the major sects will not agree.
And not long after Chen Feng established the martial arts status, the Huyang realm was surging again, the other two green forest bandits joined forces to attack, and the imperial court also dispatched troops to take action.
For a time, Chen Feng became the target of public criticism and was attacked by three parties.
The change in the situation has brought the spirit of countless scattered people from all corners of the world, and they all understand the situation.
Chen Feng is in an unfavorable situation. If he can’t survive this battle, even if he is the world’s No. 1 monster in the world, his forces will vanish into thin air, and it will not be a climate.
If he can survive, he will become the overlord of the green forest in Huyang, and his position will become more and more stable. If he continues to suppress the rivers and lakes, I am afraid that no one can do anything for a long time.
Most people have no intention or qualification to intervene, they just intend to watch a play. But there are also Jianghu people who claim to be righteous, calling on the heroes to take advantage of Chen Feng’s belly and back to be the enemy, and rescue the captured men and horses from the claws.
The vast majority of people who have participated in the martial arts conference have only one reaction when they hear this kind of rhetoric – ignore you, even if I lose!
However, there are some newborn calves, or stakeholders, who are excited and feel that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
For a while, there were all kinds of rumors and rumors in the rivers and lakes.
On the other side, Zhou Jing and the leader of the village, temporarily had no time to take into account the reaction of the rivers and lakes, and devoted themselves to fighting against the two Jiao and the imperial court to suppress the bandits.
The tents are continuous, the flags are hunting, the blue waters are endless, and countless warships are operating on the lake, in full swing.
Now Zhou Jing’s Dazhai has completed the war mobilization, and many soldiers are on standby to prepare for war, waiting to be dispatched at all times.
In the camp, many leaders sat down one by one and listened to Du Ying’s report on the current military situation.
“The owner of the village, the spies have found out that the ‘Jiang Jiao King’ Wan Chunyang attacked from the east with 40,000 soldiers and horses, while the ‘Bronze-head Dragon King’ Tan Peng sent out more than 10,000 soldiers and horses, constantly harassing us from the north. The lake site. And the prefectures in Huyang have gathered 30,000 elite soldiers and generals, converged in Fanzhou, and attacked from the west…”
Du Ying talked about the information in detail.
Although he used to be a subordinate of Fan Zong, his heart was changeable, and now he is really devoted to Zhou Jing, which makes Fan Zong feel uneasy, but there is nothing he can do.
After several contacts with Zhou Jing, he ordered Du Ying to be the dog head military advisor in the cottage. After all, there are too few literate people in the stockade, so he is a useful person.
“Three sides are attacked, and the enemy is attacked on the back, can the military division have a good plan?”
Zhou Jing sat on the main seat and asked.
Du Ying thought for a while and said, “The imperial court suppresses bandits and doesn’t talk about it, there is no room for change. Judging from the current situation, Wan Chunyang dares to send troops in large numbers, most of which have cooperated with the imperial court in private, and may suffer from it. Recruit. And although Tan Peng also sent troops to crusade against us, he only sent more than 10,000 people, only to harass, and the rest of the troops were still stationed on the site. Obviously, they were on guard. .”
“Something makes sense.”
All the leaders nodded.
Du Ying paused and continued:
“Last year, Tan Peng and Wan Chunyang teamed up to confront us, out of coldness. Now Wanchun Yang is 80% on the line with the court. If we are removed, then Tan Peng will not have a good end, so we and Tan Peng is also in a relationship now, so maybe he can find a way to win over this person.”
When Duan Yunfeng heard the words, he said in a deep voice: “What the military advisor said is good, but you must be careful that this is a trick. It is possible that Tan Peng also joined the imperial court, deliberately pretending that he was not of the same mind, and tempted me to form an alliance with them, waiting to turn around at the juncture. Stab us in the head.”
“It’s not impossible, but you always have to get in touch with him before you can make a judgment.”
Du Ying replied, then looked at Zhou Jing, and asked:
“The owner of the village, in my opinion, should send messengers to persuade Tan Peng, clarify the situation, and make him defect…”
Zhou Jing nodded his chair, looked at Fan Zong, and asked, “Brother Fan, you have been an enemy of Tan Peng for many years, and you know him a little bit. What kind of person is he?”
Fan Zong thought for a few seconds and replied: “This person was born in poverty. He used to be a fisherman on the river. He was oppressed by the government.
After listening to Zhou Jing, he pondered for a while, and said slowly:
“In this way, no matter who wins or loses, Tan Peng’s situation is embarrassing. This person may be able to lure him. This plan is feasible, and if you do it, let the messenger send me the conditions. I At the front, I fought with Wan Chunyang and the imperial army. At that time, Wan Chunyang had no time to take care of the rear. He could persuade Tan Peng to turn his back and attack. Come, he will benefit, no matter who wins or loses between me and the court, he can grow by this.”
Hearing the words, the leaders looked at each other in dismay, but stopped talking.
Guo Haishen frowned and said, “Second brother, if I act like this, I can’t wait to be taken advantage of. We tried our best, but Tan Peng took advantage of it and gave it to others as wedding clothes.”
Zhou Jing shook his head and explained:
“Now that we are attacking from three sides, although we have tens of thousands of soldiers and horses, we are still weak. If we can make one side turn, the situation will be much easier. If we are not allowed to take advantage, how can Tan Peng agree? It is precisely to let him take advantage, consciously After growing up, they can stand against the winners and have the power to protect themselves, so they will temporarily join forces with us.
Besides, if Tan Peng really didn’t serve the imperial court, even if I didn’t mention this condition, he might not have the intention of robbing Wan Chunyang while he was in the fire, so let’s stabilize him first. When we have a result, he may come out to pick peaches, but it is also a good thing to be able to deal with the enemy in a staggered way…”
His own tactics to defeat Fan Zong, these three must be on guard, and will not easily give him the opportunity to single-handedly capture the flag.
After all, he is only one person, so he can’t be separated from three sides. If he is reckless, there is still a chance of winning, but the loss is definitely not small.
He can use force to be unparalleled on the battlefield, but strategically, he doesn’t necessarily have to fight alone. If conditions permit, he doesn’t mind getting together and breaking them apart, so as to reduce some battlefield pressure as much as possible.
“Furthermore, if we win the battle, we will be able to obtain a large number of soldiers and armors. It is also a battle to support the battle. It is hard to say who will gain more.” Zhou Jing added to the leaders.
Everyone nodded slightly.
Du Ying pondered: “Well, in this way, the messenger needs to choose a clever person who can speak well, in order to convince Tan Peng.”
Hearing these words, Li Chun’s figure flashed in Zhou Jing’s mind.
Unfortunately, this person is in Hongyun Mountain and is not the leader of his own family. Otherwise, it would be very suitable for this guy to be the messenger.
He swept his gaze across the crowd, and quickly ordered a leader who later served as a messenger.
This person is called Zhu He, and his martial arts skills are shallow, but he is barely able to speak, and he is also responsible for the business of ushering and sending to this area on weekdays.
“So it’s settled. Brother Zhu He will be the messenger, meet with Tan Peng, and bring some elite soldiers as guards.”
Zhou Jing made a decision, and then said solemnly:
“Even if Tan Peng agrees, most of them are scheming with the oriole at the back. You can’t fully believe it, and you must guard against it.”
“This is natural.”
The crowd responded.
After discussing the strategy to meet the enemy, under Zhou Jing’s order, they each brought their troops and marched with the army.
In the 12th year of Xinghe, at the end of March, Wan Chunyang, Tan Peng, and Huyang troops and horses came out to encircle and suppress Chen Feng.
Chen Fengshui’s army and soldiers divided the way, according to Lu Xiangshui, on the side of Weizhou’s shore, and strictly fortified.
In April, Chen Feng’s troops attacked Wan Chunyang’s army. The two sides fought several times on the water, each of which was damaged. Wan Chunyang was defeated and retreated for the time being.
During the period, Chen Feng took the lead, and repeatedly acted as a vanguard to break through the enemy’s formation. Wan Chunyang returned without success, which all stemmed from this.
On the other hand, Guo Haishen and others led another army to garrison the Danhu River, and set up Dazhai to guard against danger.
The official army, regardless of the ebb and flow of the river, forged ahead and fought for several days. Guo Haishen’s department had sent people to do something on the upper reaches of the river, and many of the officers and soldiers were trapped in the mud and ran aground on the beach, so they had to abandon some of the warships and fled.
However, this plan blocked Jiang Dao, and it was difficult for Guo Haishen to chase after him. He only won a small victory, but did not seriously damage the official army.
North, Tan Peng harassed many important points in the lake area under Chen Feng’s command. He fought several times, winning and losing. He was temporarily blocked outside the main battle area, entangled, and did not advance in a big way.
In May, the officers and soldiers gathered their troops and horses, turned to Hongzhou, and marched from the lower reaches of the waterway. Wan Chunyang turned to the upper reaches of the waterway, trying to attack Chenfeng Water Village from both sides, but Du Ying saw it.
Chen Feng’s subordinates moved the people and livestock of the water village ahead of time. Some navy forces contained Wanchun Yang upstream, and secretly sent hundreds of people down the river in broken warships.
Downstream Guo Haishen led the army to deceive and defeated, retreating step by step, the officers and troops marched in parallel, encircling and suppressing the water villages along the lake one by one, but all the villages were empty, and when the warships were drifting, it was expected that the upstream Chen Feng was defeated, so they marched straight up with the intention of copying Cut back.
When they reached the mouth of the Yangping River, the drums suddenly started beating, Chen Feng’s troops rushed out, the officers sank their ships and abandoned their armor, scattered and fled, and thousands of soldiers surrendered.
On the other side, Wan Chunyang attacked for many days, but he was still unable to overcome it. He had no choice but to turn in. He joined the defeated soldiers of the official army and retreated to several key points for the time being. The urgent letter urged Tan Peng to support him.
In early June, the sudden change occurred, Tan Peng turned his back, turned his head and attacked Wan Chunyang’s site, stealing his butt.
Wan Chunyang heard the news, and the army was in chaos.
Taking advantage of this opportunity, Chen Feng made a massive advance, and the offense and defense followed suit.
In mid-June, Chen Feng, Wan Chunyang and the official army fought on the lake with tens of thousands of people.
Chen Feng overturned the river and the sea in the water, killing the enemy was useless, blood stained his pupils, and finally established the victory, leading the army to defeat Wan Chunyang and the officers and soldiers, capturing tens of thousands of enemies.
The only remaining enemy troops were severely injured, chased by their tails, nibbled up step by step, dying to death, fleeing, and descending, unable to return to the sky.
There was an episode during the period. Dozens of masked Jianghu people were whimsical and tried to sneak into Chenfeng Dazhai to rescue the still imprisoned troops.
However, before they could sneak in, they were exposed. They were hanged and flogged for a day and a night, and then they were thrown into the cell and dictated cheats with the various factions.
On the 20th of June, Wan Chunyang and many leaders had nowhere to go, and they were all captured.
They fought against Chen Feng in a mighty way, but the result was a big defeat.
“You Jiang Jiao King” Wan Chunyang’s family lost everything, a large number of soldiers and horses were captured by Chen Feng, and the territory under his command was taken away by Tan Peng.
The bandit suppression officers and soldiers mobilized by the Huyang prefectures were almost wiped out, and most of them became soldiers in the hands of Chen Feng.
On the other side, Tan Peng took over the power of Wan Chunyang, but he did not settle for the status quo, but immediately sent troops to attack Chen Feng.
At this juncture, Chen Feng’s navy is quite tired from the repeated battles, and he has not had time to turn his troops into combat power, which is an excellent opportunity to make a move.
Tan Peng had this idea early in the morning, and together with Chen Fengxu and Wei She, pretended to join forces, but in fact he was a oriole by waiting for work, and took this opportunity to solve the last competitor and become the final winner of Huyang.
However, due to Chen Fengfei’s heroic performance, Tan Peng was unable to attack for a long time. This battle went directly to August, with both injuries and no winner.
Tan Peng knew that the opportunity had been lost and his abacus was in vain, so he would withdraw his troops for the time being.
Chen Feng’s army was exhausted from the long battle, so he also acquiesced to this situation, temporarily withdrawing his troops and taking a rest.
The turmoil in Huyang lasted from March to August, and lasted for nearly half a year. In the end, Wan Chunyang and the officers and soldiers were all divided. There were only two tyrants left in the green forest, and they fought each other.
Although the two sides have died down, they are sharpening their knives in private, holding back their strength, preparing to completely solve their opponents and dominate Huyang.
Huyang’s officers and troops were seriously injured and could no longer intervene.
But for Tan Peng, the court still did not give up, and it also means to recruit An.
Now there are only two big bandits left in Huyang, and only Tan Peng can deal with Chen Feng. If we can recruit An Tan Peng and use this person to kill Chen Feng, not only can we get rid of the serious troubles of his confidants, but also the troubles of Huyang bandits can be eliminated together, and the place will be stable.
With such a “win-win” idea, the imperial court endured the unpleasantness of the last time and once again sent an envoy to visit Tan Peng.
