Everlasting Immortal Firmament Book 01 Chapter 007: The Heart’s Knife Pointed at the Camp

Merchant City, Gao Xianzhi’s camp:

A large number of soldiers gathered in a large plaza. At this moment, they had dozens of Song Nation soldiers tied up there, forced to kneel.

All the soldiers stared at the commander-in-chief, Gao Xianzhi, who was in the north, and Crown Prince Song, who assisted at the side.

“Let me go! I want to go home! Let me go home!”

“I have been killing on the frontlines, not caring about my life and death. However, that corrupt official killed my entire family behind my back. Let me go! Let me take revenge!”

“My entire family is gone, burned by fire! I have to search for my father and mother. Let me go!”

The bound Song Nation soldiers shouted at Gao Xianzhi and Crown Prince Song with bloodshot eyes.

Gao Xianzhi showed a sullen expression as he stared at the agitated soldiers. Crown Prince Song also looked at Gao Xianzhi.

“Lin Chong, have you clarified the situation?” Gao Xianzhi asked.

Lin Chong, who was at the side, nodded. “Commander, we have captured all the deserters. This subordinate also asked them about it. Apparently, we failed to keep our guard up. As the merchants of the various cities came, the merchants brought bad news from their homes. Some of the nobilities harmed the families of these soldiers. Their families managed to escape and sent word. The soldiers deserted only because their families suffered harm.”

“How many of them?” Gao Xianzhi asked sullenly.

“There have already been thirty families that met with mishaps,” Lin Chong said with an unsightly expression. 

“Is Gu Hai’s plot finally starting? Is he trying to cause chaos in the hearts of my soldiers? Humph!” Gao Xianzhi let out a cold snort.

“Gu Hai’s plot?” Crown Prince Song’s expression sank.

“What’s going on? Who is spreading rumors in my camp?” Gao Xianzhi asked coldly.

“It is those groups of wealthy merchants. There were messengers from the various cities or the soldiers’ relatives among the merchant’s servants. They were secretly meeting with the soldiers, bringing bad news. That’s why these soldiers chose to desert,” Lin Chong explained.

“Those groups of wealthy merchants? Humph! A rich man is not a benevolent one. For sowing chaos in the hearts of my soldiers, they deserve death!” Crown Prince Song said as he glared.

“Your Highness, calm down.” Gao Xianzhi shook his head.

“What’s wrong? Commander, do you intend to protect those merchants?” Crown Prince Song asked sullenly.

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.
