Ravaging Times

chapter 112

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

Mencius said, without a heart that sympathizes, one is not human; without a heart aware of shame, one is not human; without a heart that defers to others, one is not human.

{Xuzhou}
[?]: It has been a few years after the campaign against Dong. I can’t believe lord Tao just left like that…
[?]: Fortunately the owner of Xuzhou right now is Liu Bei.

[?]: Yes. Brother Tao did a good thing, willing Xuzhou to a virtuous man before his death.
[Guan Yu]: Sirs, you speak too kindly.

[?]: No, Imperial Uncle Liu’s benevolence has been told to the world, and he has even beaten Lv Bu at Hulao Pass,
[?]: hence I would be the first to approve of his rule over Xuzhou.

[?]: Our trip was not in vain, for we have seen the joy of Xuzhou’s people.

chapter 112 Not Human

[Kong Rong]: It’s unfortunate that the Imperial Uncle couldn’t be here to meet us. Please give our regards on our behalf. We will visit another time!
[GY]: Sirs, I will see you off.

[Tian Kai]: Frankly we came for some reward. But now…
{Inspector of Qingzhou, Tian Kai}
[KR]: Yes. I still couldn’t believe Tao Qian would give Xuzhou to him.
{Grand Administrator of Beihai, Kong Rong}

[TK]: But the people of Xuzhou have been through so much fighting, and if it continues…
[KR]: Mencius said, without a heart that sympathizes, one is not human.

[GY]: Oh.

[Taishi Ci]: Mencius said, without a heart aware of shame, one is not human.

[GY]: What?

{inner courtyard}

[Zhang Fei]: Has he noticed anything in this medicine?
[soldier]: Not yet.

[ZF]: Any problem?
[soldier]: Don’t worry, he’s still asleep.

{sfx: ka!}

[ZF]: My big brother is a man of integrity. He’s just inflexible to the changing times.
[ZF]: If it weren’t for the dirty business his two brothers had to do…

[ZF]: he might still be selling straw sandals.

[ZF]: Post more guards here until we convince him to accept Xuzhou.

[soldier]: This is the inner courtyard, so who could come here?

[ZF]: Well, someone just paid a visit.

[KR]: How was your assignment?

[TSC]: Haha, it was a comedy, but just as you said…

[TSC]: That man… pretty decent by nature, so those two besides him wouldn’t be too bad either.

[KR]: Looks like… you view him rather highly!
{Taishi Ci}
[TSC]: Lord Kong Rong, I think you should give up!

That day Kong Rong was the first to express his support for Liu Bei’s governance over Xuzhou.

{Puyang}
Chen Gong besieges the three gates with fire, while Lv Bu holds his ground at the north gate. The Cao Cao army in the city are in disarray.

[soldier]: Sir, flammable materials are all over the place. If we can’t break out now we’re dead.

[captain]: Fight fire with fire… our Lord really fell for it this time.
/* distorted */

[captain]: Head for the north gate to help our Lord break out of here, hurry!

{sfx: long~}

{sfx: peng~}

[Gao Shun]: It’s over.
{Gao Shun}

[GS]: Once I kill this man, use fire to seal off this area.

{north gate}

[Cao Hong]: Xu… Xu Chu, your old wounds haven’t healed, don’t go!

[Xu Chu]: I am, still able!

[Lv Bu]: Cao Cao, didn’t you boast that Xu Chu can defeat me?

[LB]: It’s alright, you guys still have time to try me before the fire gets here.

Even… even more powerful than in the legend!

[Han Hao]: Even without Xu Chu, there’re still us!
[Yu Jin]: Let’s take him together!

[Dian Wei]: You don’t need to concern yourself of this.

[DW]: I’ll take it from here.

[LB]: You look like an assassin.
[captain]: Step down.

[DW]: That’s right. I killed all those so-called assassins of yours.

Including you!

{sfx: cha~}

He… he succeeded!

[DW]: To leave a mark on the body of the undefeatable God of War…

[YJ]: Dian Wei look out!

[DW]: I, Dian Wei, feel very honored.

Shit!

{sfx: peng~}

[LB]: Mencius said, without a heart that defers to others, one is not human.

[LB]: That statement is for you presumptuous simpletons, who want to conquer the world.

{breathing: huff… huff…}

[LB]: Today I shall teach you all a lesson on behalf of Mencius.

[LB]: Come here, all of you.

On that day, the morale of Cao Cao’s army has completely collapsed even before the actual battle!

Fear can destroy everything.
