“Lanlod is an intelligent person.”
Looking at Kelly, Chen Heng only smiled and said, “If we were in an open battlefield, he might discover that something was off. Even now, he might sense that something is wrong, but there is nothing he can do about it.
“His allies have bound his hands and feet, and even if he has other thoughts, he will not be able to leave.
“Of course, even if he leaves, the situation will not be that much different.”
Speaking to there, Chen Heng could not help but laugh.
Different to what the other side thought, from the beginning of the battle, Chen Heng had been the active, not passive, one.
Not only was his battle power superior to that of the other side, but he knew everything about the other side clearly.
However, Lanlod knew almost nothing about the situation in the Kutu Royal City.
For this day, Chen Heng had already begun planning ten or so years ago.
There was a massive disparity between the two sides in strength, intelligence, and preparation.
It was evident what the outcome would be.
It could be said that from the moment that the enemy led their army on the Kutu Royal City, the conclusion was already set.
Dragging things on like this not only reduced the losses Chen Heng would have to suffer but also increased his chances of success.
“Tell Krudo to make preparations.”
Looking down at the fighting below, Chen Heng said calmly, “Gather the army and go out to fight in three days.”
“Should we not wait longer?” Kelly asked.
From how he saw it, they could still whittle down the rebel army’s strength for a while.
When the other side could not go on any longer and was preparing to retreat, that would be the best time to attack.
“If we wait until the most opportune time, it will be easy for things to go wrong.” Looking at Kelly, Chen Heng shook his head and said, “After fighting for so long, the other side has become very tired. It is not just Lanlod; the other rulers are most likely thinking about leaving as well.
“If we continue on like this, who knows what could happen?” Chen Heng turned as he said.
If they really did wait until the other side began to retreat, even if the other side was weakened, they would still expect to be attacked as they retreated.
Even if the situation did not change, some people would be able to escape, which was not what Chen Heng wanted.
Chen Heng’s goal from the start had been very clear, which was to completely destroy this army and annihilate the other side’s forces.
Kelly did not reply and only nodded as he thought to himself.
Three days passed in the blink of an eye.
Three days later, it was quite clear and bright; it was very good weather.
Ordinarily, people would go out at a time like this and travel and play.
However, there was a completely different scene today.
The outside of the Kutu Royal City had become a slaughterhouse.
Large numbers of corpses were piled below the city walls, and below, many warriors madly rushed up, wanting to rush onto the city walls and fight with the enemies.
However, no matter how they charged, the outcome was the same. Even though some were able to reach the top of the city walls, in the end, they were repelled.
“It’s still like this?” Looking at this scene, Lanlod’s expression was serious and he inwardly gave a heavy sigh.
In the past one month or so, this scene had constantly been replayed every day.
The forces on the city walls were indeed quite weak, but as they besieged the city every day, they were also becoming weaker.
Moreover, this city seemed incredibly resilient, and they simply could not break through it.
“Should we retreat?” Looking at the city walls, Lanlod could not help but think this.
This month of sieging had made him feel incredibly weary and he felt great pressure.
This pressure did not come from his enemy but from himself.
The consumption of resources of a 50,000 man army was terrifying.
Every day that they remained outside the Kutu Royal City, they were bearing immense pressure.
This could be maintained for a short period of time from the territories that they conquered, but as time went on, they would start to face problems.
As the commander of the rebel army, Lanlod knew the grave dangers of this.
However, everyone felt quite reluctant to withdraw from the Kutu Royal City.
They could see that the Kutu Royal City’s defenses were becoming weaker and weaker, and it seemed like if they hung on for a bit longer, they might be able to break through.
Moreover, for this battle, everyone had suffered great losses. If they were unable to conquer the Kutu Royal City, it would be a massive blow to Lanlod and the others.
It was because there were so many considerations that Lanlod was stuck between a rock and a hard place.
“We’ll attack for another half a month…”
In the end, Lanlod deeply breathed in as he thought to himself, “If we still can’t break through by then, we’ll retreat.”
As Count Nardo’s reinforcements approached, the pressure he faced grew greater and greater every day. If he waited too long, he would not be able to retreat even if he wanted to.
In the distance, a wave of shouts suddenly sounded out.
Hearing these sounds, Lanlod instinctively looked ahead.
Seeing the scene before him, he stared in surprise for a moment.
The city gates of the Kutu Royal City slowly opened and an army was rushing out.
“What’s going on?” Seeing this, Lanlod was stunned and could not understand it.
They were sieging the city, but the defending army had run out by themselves.
What did they want?
Lanlod thought that something had happened in the city.
Perhaps the nobles being controlled by Count Nardo had risen up against him and had opened the city gates. Alternatively, perhaps Count Nardo could not take it anymore and was preparing to surrender…
However, the army’s actions made him second-guess what he had just thought.
As the army came out, they began to pick up momentum.
Seeing this, it did not seem like they were coming out to surrender.
A wave of cries sounded out.
In just a moment, a hole had been ripped open in Lanlod’s army. Moreover, there were even more soldiers madly rushing out of the city gates.
At that moment, Lanlod finally realized what was going on.
It was just that it did not matter anymore that he had realized.
The originally-defending army was madly charging out, and the two armies soon collided.
The final battle had arrived!
For the rebel army’s rulers, this final battle had come much too suddenly.
They were not prepared at all before the battle began.
The rumbling war drums sounded out, and massive shouts inundated everything.
Below, Chen Heng had put on armor and was flanked by Krudo and some other Knights as he rushed out.
