Chapter 46: Catching Pigs Outside the City
The sky seemed to have been pierced through, and rain seemed to be pouring down from a huge hole!
The wind howled and lightning flashed, turning the area into chaos.
Wang Shun, Wei Cun, Yan Sheng, and the 50,000-strong army that had just started charging began to run around like flies.
The cavalry could not control their frightened horses, and the infantry could not tell the direction. They could only push each other around.
Soon, there was a series of trampling incidents.
How was this still a rainstorm? It was like they had been thrown into a surging river!
Moreover, huge waves surged over, wanting to drown the entire 50,000-strong army.
“Men, hold on, hold on for me!” Wang Shun shouted at the top of his lungs. “Don’t move!”
However, he was only a Qi Transformation realm Grandmaster after all. Compared to the power of Heaven and Earth, he was too insignificant. His voice was completely covered by the sound of the thunder and wind. No one could hear his shout at all.
“What’s going on? What’s going on?!” Wei Cun was completely flustered and horrified.
He swayed in the strong wind and almost fell off his horse. He could not help but look up at the sky that seemed to have been opened up. He felt as if he was in a dream.
Why was this happening?!
Just now, the sky was still clear. Why did the weather suddenly change and there was a storm?!
This was completely illogical!
At this moment, Wei Cun heard an ear-piercing hiss. A large rock had been swept over by the wind. It was so fast that he had no time to react.
This stone, which was the size of two palms and filled with sharp edges, directly smashed into Wei Cun’s face. The powerful and direct impact actually knocked the head of this Left Cabinet Minister off on the spot!
It was forcefully torn off!
In an instant, blood surged out of the “wound” that was the size of a bowl like a fountain and mixed with the rain, instantly causing the surroundings of Wei Cun to become bloody.
The deputies beside Wei Cun were not spared either. There was more than one stone that flew over just now, and several of them were also hit.
However, some people were lucky and were only hit in the shoulders and legs. Some were unlucky and were directly hit in the chest, head, and other parts, dying on the spot.
In the blink of an eye, the 25,000 people on the left lost their leader and became even more chaotic.
At this moment, Yan Sheng looked in the direction of Juhe County with empty eyes. He felt the inexplicable power that filled the world and his heart was as sunken as a dead man. He was completely in despair.
“I told you, I told you! The county magistrate of Juhe County is extraordinary. We can’t act rashly. Why didn’t you listen?!” He suddenly shouted angrily. “I knew it would be like this. It’s over. It’s completely over!”
It was indeed all over.
Under the power of this extremely violent meteorological phenomenon, more than half of the 50,000-strong army was killed or injured in the blink of an eye. The army was basically crippled due to the mental breakdown caused by the heavy rain and the howling wind. They ran around and trampled each other.
There were also many people who were smashed to death by the rocks and wooden blocks that were blown over by the wind.
The army that claimed to be able to break through Juhe County in two hours had completely lost their combat strength in just a few breaths.
At this moment, the city gate tower of Juhe County was silent.
Whether it was Lu Zhengming, Monk Hui Shi, or the others who had seen Cui Heng’s methods, or Zhao Guang and the others who were confident in Cui Heng but did not know what to do, they were all shocked to the extreme. They almost could not believe their eyes.
What was that just now?!
The County Lord seemed to have only splashed a bowl of water outside. Why did the wind suddenly blow, lightning flashed, and rain poured down?
Was this also martial arts?
Was there such a ridiculous martial technique in this world?
It was too incredible!
As for the commoners and soldiers who had just arrived on the city wall and did not understand the situation, after seeing the scene in front of them, they knelt down to Cui Heng on the spot and kowtowed earnestly.
It was like kowtowing to an Immortal.
If they were asked if Cui Heng was a human or an Immortal, the answer they would receive would definitely be Immortal.
Who had seen someone who could use a bowl of water to create a storm?
This must be an Immortal!
As for Xu Bailu, Fang Min, and Zhou Caiwei, who were standing not far from Cui Heng, they were also stunned as they looked at the dark clouds and violent winds outside the city.
Their martial cultivation was strong. Even from a few kilometers away, they could clearly see the situation in King Yan’s army. This gave them an unprecedented shock.
So this was how one defended a city?
No wonder they did not increase the number of soldiers and did not release any recruitment plan.
With such divine methods, what need was there for soldiers?
A bowl of clear water drowned tens of thousands of troops. If they hadn’t seen it with their own eyes, they would have found it impossible to believe.
It was too ridiculous and shocking.
“Martial arts… Is this still martial arts?”
Xu Bailu’s beautiful face was slightly pale as she looked at Cui Heng’s back in extreme shock. She muttered, “The Immortals in the myths and legends are only so-so.”
Among everyone present, she should be the one who had the clearest impression of Cui Heng’s strength.
After all, once the Profound Gate was opened, it was equivalent to establishing a preliminary bridge between the Inner World and the Outer World. One could vaguely sense the changes in the Heaven Earth Essence Energy and some Dharma and laws of the outside world.
The moment she saw Cui Heng splash out the bowl of water, she suddenly felt her mind go blank. She felt as if she had been attacked by an extremely complicated flood of information.
The flood of information contained the changes in the Heaven Earth Origin Qi and the extent of the distortion of nature’s laws and principles. It completely exceeded the limits of what she could withstand, and she almost fainted on the spot.
This feeling terrified her.
This was because she could clearly sense Cui Heng’s strength and her own insignificance.
In front of this County Magistrate Cui, a Profound Gate Realm Grandmaster like her was probably not even an ant… No, not even a speck of dust.
Could it be that he was really as her two disciples had said, an Immortal from the heavens?
He was too powerful!
“So my previous feelings were real. This County Lord is really so powerful!”
Zhou Caiwei was extremely surprised. Although the essence of her soul was quite high and her innate spiritual perception was very sharp, she could not sense a huge flow of information like Xu Bailu.
Therefore, although she was very surprised by Cui Heng’s strength, she was not as frightened as Xu Bailu. She still had the mood to ask, “Master, is this the legendary Deity Realm?”
“Deity Realm? Is there really a Deity Realm?” Fang Min also looked at Xu Bailu.
She was the luckiest one. Her martial cultivation and spiritual perception were both not high. She was only shocked by the strange methods Cui Heng used, but she did not know what it meant.
“Divine Realm, Divine Treasure, unlocking the treasures in your body, possessing all kinds of unbelievable powers…” Xu Bailu looked at Cui Heng and shook her head before nodding. She said in an uncertain tone, “Perhaps.”
At this moment, a loud and long thunder sounded in the distance. After this thunder, the strange phenomenon that enveloped King Yan’s army dissipated.
The 50,000-strong army that had been aggressive just now was now either dead or injured. They were all lying in a large pool of mud mixed with flesh and dirt, on the verge of death.
“Everyone, it’s time to go out and capture prisoners!” Cui Heng suddenly smiled, waking up the people who were immersed in shock.
Only then did everyone wake up from their daze. Lu Zhengming, Monk Huishi, Zhao Guang, and more than 200 soldiers stood up straight and shouted, “Yes! County Lord!”
They were already prepared. Now that they had received the order, they could set off immediately.
Although the army outside was large, they had completely lost their ability to resist. It was easier than catching pigs.
Half a day later.
In the grand hall of Juhe County Office, Lu Zhengming and Monk Hui Shi were on the left and right. Cui Heng sat in the middle on the highest seat.
He looked down at the middle-aged general who was shackled and kneeling on the ground. With a teasing smile in his eyes, he said, “Wang Shun, the younger brother of King Wang Tong of Yan, leads an army of 50,000 soldiers, General Anbei.
“I heard that you wanted to sit in my county office in half a day. Now that you’ve gotten your wish, you should be happy. Why are you looking so sad?”
