Ravaging Times

chapter 107

(I need to read this over, no time right now)

{west hill}

There are no fools, only men who think they’re merciful.

[captain]: Don’t let them get away!
[captain]: We outnumber them after all!

{shouting: kill~}

[?]: Kill them all!

chapter 107 Merciful Or Merciless . Righteous Or Unrighteous

[soldier]: General! We’re the last group.

[Zhang Liao]: Don’t worry about me! Return to the back side!

[soldier]: You guys hear that? Retreat to the back side immediately!

[ZL]: I excel in this kind of terrain.

[ZL]: I repeat,

[ZL]: no one has ever gotten past my striking distance.

[ZL]: Come.

For the willfully benevolent, there is no killing to save themselves, only killing to save others.

This path is long, but it’s mine to take.

{shouting: kill~}

{sfx: pa~}

Mine to take.

{sfx: pa~}

{shouting: wah~}

I feel like Xiang Yu, the Conqueror from West Chu, when he was surrounded by enemies (at He Xia?)…
/*

not sure about the location; typo?
*/

[ZL]: Ha ha ha, come come come!

{sfx: cha~}

[Yue Jin]: Does this feel familiar?

[YJ]: That’s what they call a sneak attack.

[YJ]: I return this to you.

{sfx: pa~}

It is the Conqueror’s most poignant moment.

{sfx: peng~}

[Guan Yu]: A fight is a fight…

[GY]: How is a sneak attack different for armies and for two men?

[ZL]: What?
[YJ]: Is he your friend?

[GY]: I know you’re laughing at me.

Ha ha, annoying preacher.

{sfx: zheng~}

Up there…

[ZL]: I thought our collaboration was over. Why did you come back?

[GY]: I’m here to laugh at you… who would die for an unrighteous man.

[ZL]: Who?

[GY]: Looks like you’re beyond hope in your admiration for that unhuman.

[ZL]: Sh… shit.
[ZL]: You don’t know all of it.

[ZL]: Lv Bu is not an unrighteous man!

[GY]: I respect righteous men the most, and I sympathize the most with those who have been deceived.

[ZL]: If you say my Lord is unrighteous, then why would you save his minion?

[GY]: I’m here to save…
[GY]: an officer who would die for his subordinates.

[ZL]: You flatter me too much.

[GY]: Your eyes speak otherwise.

{sfx: cha~}

This man is… Guan Yu, an one-man-army!
/* “a match for a hundred thousand men”, see comment below */

[GY]: I drew this line of blood.
[GY]: Whoever dares to enter shall join it.

A… a match for Lv Bu!

[GY]: General Yue Jin…

[GY]: thank you for seeing us off.

[YJ]: As you please.

[GY]: Goodbye.

[captain]: General Yue Jin, why would you…

[YJ]: You guys must be laughing at my cowardice, right?

[YJ]: But, think about this: our deployment should cover this area…

[YJ]: Yet Guan Yu could come and go by himself…

[soldier]: Then… then…
[soldier]: Unless… the entrance guards…

[?]: Something is going on at the Makeng Valley.
[?]: Hurry! Go around to help them!

{Makeng Valley}

[Liaoyuan Huo]: Guan Yu has led his assault on the ambush in the hills. They can defend against Yue Jin’s men with the help of the terrain.
[LYH]: The rations transport that goes to Cao Cao will be here soon. In this wind… fire is best.

[Seventh]: Yes, and you are the perfect man to do it, General.

[LYH]: Why do you think so, mister?

[Seventh]: Is it Zhao Yun? Or the Fire that scorches the plain?

{sfx: xiu~}
[LYH]: What?

[Seventh]: In these chaotic times, a righteous man should fight to save his country. With talents like yours, mister Liaoyuan…

[Seventh]: Why would you die for an unrighteous man?

The shackle in the heart is rusting, like poison spreading through the entire body.
