Chu Li said, “The warzone is indeed not suitable for women, but the application of the art of war strategy is very broad, it’s not only applicable in wars but universally useful as well.”

Leng Qing said faintly, “Wherever it is, it’s useless because I’m a woman.”

Chu Li laughed.

Leng Qiu said, “How is it useless? I heard that Lu Yurong calls the shots in the Ren Public House. She commands the Protectors from the Public House who managed to utterly rout martial arts masters, she’s really powerful!”

“In the end, isn’t she at a disadvantage when it comes to the Head Chief?” Leng Qing said.

Chu Li shook his head and chuckled. “Miss Qing, don’t listen to the outside rumors, they are all exaggerated. In fact, Lu Yurong isn’t really at such a disadvantage.”

“That’s right, that’s right. Before the Head Chief came along, Lu Yurong emerged victorious in every battle, she was never defeated. Elder Sister, you’re so smart and tactful, if you can lead the military force, you’ll win all the battles too.” Leng Qiu quickly nodded.

Chu Li laughed and thought to himself, Leng Qiu’s words could not be trusted.

He smiled and said, “Miss Qing, actually the key to the application of war strategy is not the ruses, it’s the human mind. Only by having an insight of the human’s mind down to the smallest detail, would one be able to put ruses to good use, but without seeing through minds, even the wisest ruse will be useless.”

“Lu Yurong is capable of that?” asked Leng Qing.

Chu Li replied, “Miss Qing, you’ve noticed Lu Yurong’s demeanor, haven’t you?”

“Yes.” Leng Qing nodded slowly.

All the while, Leng Qing had been honing her knowledge through war strategies and books on the art of wars. After she had scanned through the entire Great Ji, among the women, Lu Yurong’s scheme was the most powerful one. She suppressed the men and was uncontrollable.

After that, Chu Li came along, and only then Lu Yurong’s limelight was manageably stolen away.

Chu Li continued, “I’m not sure if you can tell, but Lu Yurong can see through a person’s mind.”

“See through a person’s mind?” Leng Qing frowned.

Chu Li said, “Having a deep insight into a human’s mind, Lu Yurong has abilities like that, she can read a person’s mind through their statements and actions. Although it may not be completely right, it’s hardly ever fooled, and that is the root of resourcefulness.”

“I see” Leng Qing looked afar as if she was thinking about something.

Lu Yurong was speaking softly to Consort Lu, whereas Leng Ying smiled sweetly from time to time.

Two middle-aged riders were guarding downstairs, Prince Bao walked up the tall building by himself.

Chu Li scanned through the tall building.

It was about thirty meters high and occupied a space of over a hundred square. Mainly built from bluestones, it had a quaint style, which looked mottled and had suffered a great change after many years of braving the weather.

Prince Bao ascended the building as he held onto the railing, his purple robe fluttered along the way, then he overlooked the people and said out loud, “I won’t say much about the rules of the Hunting Ceremony, I’ll only exhort you one thing.”

Prince Bao’s voice was clearly heard through everyone’s ears, “This is the war zone, beside you are your comrades, whereas opposite you is the enemy. You have only one job, to protect your comrades and to exterminate your enemy This time there will be five teams, everyone in the team that becomes the winner, in the end, will be recognized for a middle-class military meritorious service!”

“Go don your armor!”

Troops of soldiers and Imperial Crown Princes gathered one after another, then entered a deep forest not far from them.

Chu Li activated the Omniscient Mirror and observed them. After they entered the deep forest, each of them took armor and wore it, put on an iron helmet which covered their faces instantly, then started picking waist tags from a box.

Those who picked waist tags of the same color had a cloth of that color tied on their arms.

In a flash, five teams were separated.

After they had donned on their armors and mounted their horses, even the people nearest to each other could not be recognized. The Imperial Crown Princes and the soldiers were blended into one.

Even if those with sharp eyes could tell, at that moment, they could not have been bothered about each other’s identity anymore.

The Imperial Crown Prince could not recognize themselves too, so it would be absolutely unnecessary for them to show mercy, after all, a middle-class military meritorious service was certainly hard to come by!

“Red team, this is your march map, blue team, this is yours Alright, each team can set off according to your march maps, there’s food, fodder, and water over there, the rest will be up to you!” a middle-aged man called out.

Sounds of trampling hoofs were heard, teams of cavalries with smart armor entered the deep forest slowly.

All the ladies watched them in awe and excitement.

Under the sunlight, their armor shone brightly. While the iron helmets covered their faces, it made them look extra stern and ferocious, the smell of iron and blood from the war filled the air.

They seemed to be flaunting themselves as they passed by the ladies slowly on their horses. There were twenty men in a team, and soon enough, they disappeared into the greens far away.

“Wow” Leng Qiu exclaimed.

Leng Qing stared at them intently as well, until they disappeared from her sight, her clear eyes were shining as she watched.

Chu Li looked at the cavalry as if he was thinking about something.

Leng Qiu turned around and looked at him. “Head Chief, aren’t they imposing?”

“Quite imposing. Are they all elites from the frontier?” Chu Li laughed.

“Of course, all of them have performed outstanding meritorious service. I heard that they’ve killed at least two iron cavalries from the Li Dynasty, they’re very powerful!” Leng Qiu smiled.

Chu Li nodded.

Leng Qing asked, “Head Chief, have you noticed something wrong?”

Her eyes were quite sharp too, she could tell that Chu Li was looking a bit odd.

Chu Li frowned and said, “One of the cavalries looks inapposite.”

“Inapposite? What is inapposite about him?” Leng Qing was stunned.

Chu Li pondered and remained silent, he replayed the actions of that specific cavalry in his mind over and over again.

“Head Chief, what exactly do you mean?” Leng Qing frowned and said.

Chu Li contemplated and said, “In the normal course of events, there shouldn’t be something like that Miss Qing, please inform Prince Bao about this, it’s better to be safe than sorry.”

“What exactly is it?” Leng Qing stared at Chu Li in dissatisfaction.

Chu Li replied, “A spy might have gotten inside.”

“A traitor? Impossible!” Leng Qing shook her head,

Those elite soldiers had gone through strict inspections, each of them was checked to ensure that they all have clean records and were not suspicious in any way at all, or else they would not have been sent to the Fairy’s Capital and put in a battle with the Imperial Crown Princes.

Chu Li chuckled. “I think that it’s impossible too, but I trust my own eyes even more whether it’s true or not, you’ll have to let Prince Bao know, in case if anything really happens, it will look bad.”

“Prince Bao won’t believe it. He will definitely rebuke you, Head Chief, he will say that you’re trying to create a disruption,” Leng Qing replied.

Chu Li could not help but laugh. “Even if I’m rebuked, it will be better than saying nothing at all.”

“That’s right, Elder Sister, just inform him. The Head Chief won’t get this wrong!” Leng Qiu quickly nodded.

Leng Qing stared at her sister and sighed helplessly. “Alright, I’ll go crazy with you on this. You’re really putting your name out there this time, Head Chief Chu!”

Chu Li laughed.

Leng Qing did not ride a horse, she lifted the ends of her skirt and shortly arrived at the towering building.

Two middle-aged cavalries stood before the building quietly.

Leng Qing fist saluted them and reported that she had urgent matters to inform Prince Bao about, so the two cavalries made way for her and let her into the building.

Her movement had attracted the attention of all the women in the building.

Lu Yurong squinted her eyes slightly and looked at Leng Qing, then she looked at Chu Li, she vaguely sensed that Leng Qing’s action most likely had something to do with Chu Li.

Leng Qing walked up the stairs carefully and arrived upstairs.

She was quite nervous, being stared at by the crowd made her feel weird. Leng Qing realized that although she was being nervous, she was not afraid at all, in fact, a feeling of excitement rose within her, and her head was clearer than it ever was.

Chu Li said, “The warzone is indeed not suitable for women, but the application of the art of war strategy is very broad, it’s not only applicable in a warzone, but universally useful as well.”

Leng Qing said faintly, “Wherever it is, it’s useless, because I’m a woman.”

Chu Li laughed and did not say a word.

Leng Qiu said, “How is it useless, I heard that Lu Yurong calls the shots in the Ren Public House, she commands the Protectors from the Public House who managed to utterly rout martial arts masters, she’s really powerful!”

“In the end, isn’t she at a disadvantage when it comes to the Head Chief?” Leng Qing said.

Chu Li said, “Having a deep insight of a human’s mind, Lu Yurong has abilities like that, she can read a person’s mind through their statements and actions. Although not completely right, but it’s always about right, and that is the root of resourcefulness.”

“I see” Leng Qing looked afar as if she was thinking about something.

Lu Yurong was speaking softly to Princess Lu, whereas Leng Ying smiled sweetly from time to time.

Two middle-aged riders were guarding downstairs, Prince Bao walked up the tall building by himself.

Chu Li scanned through the tall building.

It was about thirty meters high, and occupied a space of a hundred over square. Mainly built from bluestones, it had a quaint style, which looked mottled and suffered a great change after many years of fair weather or foul.

Prince Bao ascended the building as he held onto the railing, his purple robe fluttered along the way, then he overlooked the people and said out loud, “I won’t say much about the rules of the Hunting Ceremony, I’ll only exhort you one thing.”
