Ch451: The night at Black Sheep
-Knowing that the enemies are familiar with the terrain, Ten doubled the efforts of patrolling and defending the camp at night.
-Apparently, HSU has lost contact with Kyokai after the chaotic battle, as reported by Sosui.
-Shin isn’y worry about Kyokai but more worried about his failure today.
-Meanwhile, Kyokai and her scouting party were having a meeting. Kyokai knows exactly where HSU, Zhao army and themselves are, pointing out that they are being isloated behind enemy lines.
-As the Zhaos are defending the frontlines well, it is hard for the scouting party to return to the Qin camp. While it is possible to return by taking the long way, detouring away from the front line separating the two armies, it is hard to navigate through the dark woods.
-Kyokai agrees that they should return and continue the fight tomorrow, but she thinks that their current position behind the enemy lines is a golden opportunity.
-Back in the Qin camp, Kanki’s messenger arrived and said that Kanki wants to execute Shin for his failure. However, Kanki understands that losing an important commander at this moment is not a good idea and reduce the punishment to chopping off Shin’s right hand. Shin jokingly drew his sword and wants to cut the messenger’s hand….
-Shin wants the messenger to return with the message that HSU understands their blunder and will be the one to turn the tide of the battle, taking the head of Keisha, leading Qin to victory.
-The commander from Kanki’s army current in HSU(forgot his name) offered to return with the messenger to explain why he didnt return with Shin’s right hand.
-With today’s encounter with the enemy, Ten says that she knows what to do and what not to do, and promises with her head that HSU will break through the enemy front line and arrive at the side of the central hill tomorrow.
-As expected, the enemies launched an attack on the Qin camp at night. That did not worry Ten and Shin as they were prepared for that. Instead, they are worried about Kyokai.
-While Kyokai’s men thinks it is a ridiculous move to assassinate the enemy commanders, Kyokai thinks that the reward of taking the head of a General leading tens of thousands men without shedding a single drop of blood outweighs the risk of her failing the assassination. Moreover, as a member of a clan who does assassinations over a thousand years, this should be an achievable task.
I swear Hara sensei gets better at drawing Kyokai everytime he puts her in the spotlight. If there is a colored version of that back view of Kyokai, I would gladly use that as my mobile phone wallpaper.
