Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 006: Water Overflows When Filled to the Brim

Hulao Pass:

“Dang! Dang! Dang! Dang!”

The sound of a gong sounding a retreat rang out outside Hulao Pass.

Hulao Pass was a huge city gate tower between two precipitous cliffs. At this moment, be it above the city gate tower or outside Hulao Pass, corpses and countless arrows filled the place, and smoke rose into the air. Large numbers of scaling ladders were on fire at the sides of the city gate tower.

Gu Qin, who had dyed his hair white, stood at the top of the city gate tower, looking down at the legion of Song Nation soldiers retreating.

Chen Tianshan and Chen Liangyi stood behind Gu Qin.

“Hah! That was dangerous. We previously received news that Gao Xianzhi was startled into stopping the army upon hearing about Gu Hai. Unexpectedly, that was a feint. He came faster than expected, even bringing his elite troops. If not for your early preparations, Hulao Pass would have fallen,” Chen Tianshan said with a trace of lingering fear on his face.

Chen Liangyi nodded with certainty as well. “Fortunately, you prepared the burning tar. When they brought over the ladders, you used the burning tar to burn their ladders. Otherwise, the consequences would have been dire. They are indeed a ferocious army. As long as they climbed up, they would be equal to five of our soldiers each. This…this…” Chen Liangyi stammered with some trepidation. 

Gu Qin did not look at the two. Instead, he looked into the distance and said softly, “The two of you, no matter when, don’t let it slip. Remember, I am Gu Hai now.”

At this moment, Gu Qin had his hair dyed white. Many wrinkles also appeared on his face. With Gu Qin’s drastic change in appearance, most people would not recognize him. Although he did not look too similar to Gu Hai, few had seen Gu Hai before. In fact, not many people had seen Gu Qin in recent years, either. The members of the Gu Residence could not possibly give him away.

Chen Tianshan and Chen Liangyi looked at Gu Qin and nodded thoughtfully.

Back when Gu Hai made this arrangement, Chen Tianshan had been reluctant, fearing accidents. However, he no longer felt any resentment. At the very least, Gu Hai had anticipated the opponent’s move. The attack lasted for only ten hours, and they had managed to repulse Gao Xianzhi and force him to retreat with no results.

“I will listen to you. Just do what you want to do. As long as you can block Gao Xianzhi, anything is fine,” Chen Liangyi said resolutely.

Novel Notes

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Anyway, I'm here to ask for some help today. I recently discovered another grammar checker tool called prowritingaid and am switching over from Grammarly Premium to that cause it's been pretty buggy on my google docs. Anyway, apparently, Prowritingaid has a referral program that can help me save costs. If I can get ten people to sign up for FREE accounts and edit using it for a bit, they will give me a free one-year premium license, and if I get twenty people, that's a lifetime license. I do plan to pay for the premium (likely lifetime), but I wanna try and save costs at this moment, esp since the income coming from translating is not good at the moment, and I'm still running on savings.

So I am now asking that you help me out by signing up and using it for a bit (You will need to test out some text, otherwise the referral will not count. Just copy in maybe a long document and go through some of their edits.). Here is my referral link. https://prowritingaid.com/grammar-checker?rafid=moVYZ

You can also request for a free 2 week trial for the premium here: https://prowritingaid.com/en/App/RequestTrial

Here's a little incentive to help me out too, if you can prove that you have signed up (You can show me a screenshot on discord), I'll give you 500 Dragon Scales 🐉, which is equal to a one chapter patreon access for one month.
