(I need to read this over, no time right now)
[?]: Good news,
[?]: Huang Gai has deployed troops in the region north of Wan to watch our backs.
[?]: Then we’re pretty much disconnected from Yuan Shu now.
[Sun Ce]: Everyone has worked really hard, thanks!
chapter 133 The Last Step
[?]: Now once we meet up with the caravan, we’ll use that funding to appease the residents at Wancheng and settle there.
[servent]: Right, now is the last chance to rest.
[servent x]: Even old Xu is getting sentimental.
[Xu]: The once famous clan of the Eastern region has risen again; who wouldn’t be moved to tears!
[servent y]: Young Master, they’re here.
[Sun Fu]: It’s not over yet, don’t let them drink too much.
[servent z]: Yessir.
[guardian 1]: Long time no see, Young Master Sun!
[SC]: It’s finally here.
[guardian 1]: Back when Master left the item for me to safeguard, I swore to protect it with my life.
[guardian 1]: Human heart is unpredictable, and if it wasn’t for Young Master, Hong Zuo would’ve leaked out the secret.
[guardian 1]: I feel so relieved hearing that Young Master is going to guard it personally.
[guardian 2]: Now that the item is returned, we can finally sleep in peace.
[SC]: Let me say it again, this doesn’t belong to the Sun clan.
[SC]: The Sun clan is a clan of Loyalists, and we’re honored to protect this Imperial treasure. As long as we exist, it shall not fall into the wrong hands.
[guardian 1]: Right, Imperial Han is still in the control of Dong Zhuo’s remaining forces, plus the hungry warlords… this task will be tedious.
[guardian 2]: Now that we have Wan as a base, and after we extend our influence into the Eastern regions, who’d dare to come after it?
[SC]: I want you to go gather our former subordinates, and tell them we’re starting over.
[guardian 1]: Yessir.
[Liaoyuan Huo]: A commendation party?
[LYH]: Then where’re you going, mister owner?
[owner]: The job’s done, so I’m going home.
[owner]: Oh yeah, mister Zhao is scouting for the caravan, right?
[owner]: The traveler’s inn is in a remote area; just follow the markings I’ve set.
[LYH]: Wan’s territory is vast, and our force is too small to cover the area. I’m worried about our enemy’s remaining forces around here; have you seen any?
[owner]: Wan’s Grand Administrator is dead,
[owner]: so his subordinates should all have gone southward, turning to crimes, perhaps. Don’t worry, if it’s not safe, I wouldn’t dare to come out here.
[LYH]: Then good luck.
[owner]: Be careful.
[Lao Er]: Damnit, what did you do that for?
[LYH]: How can you sleep during guard duty?
[LE]: Huh, the caravan is so fast…
[LYH]: It’s not here yet, I’m just scouting ahead.
[LE]: Don’t worry, brother Zhao, nothing is around here, I’ve checked.
[LYH]: But you still shouldn’t drink so much, something could’ve gone wrong!
[LYH]: Where has Lao Da gone to?
[LE]: He went to pick up Ms. Shan.
[LE]: You look so worried…
[LYH]: A servant of mine is missing, have you seen him?
[LE]: That’s your family’s business, how should I know?
[LYH]: Lao Er, has anyone left?
[LE]: Didn’t I say that Lao Da left?
[LYH]: They wouldn’t have taken all the horses, right?
[LE]: Wake up! Where are the horses?
[LYH]: Was there anything in these drinks?
[LE]: How could there be, I checked it myself!
[LYH]: Is that why you drank so much?
[LYH]: You guys got careless.
[LYH]: Back door!
[LE]: Spy…? Who?
[LYH]: Must’ve been the owner!
[Shan Wu Ling]: How many?
[servant 1]: Over a hundred, and they just showed up!
[?]: They came from the north, so are they Yuan Shu’s troops?
[?]: Impossible, they’d have been blocked by Huang Gai!
[?]: Then… Yuan Shu set an ambush here ahead of time?
[SWL]: No, I think these are just bandits, formed by the remnant forces from Wan.
[SWL]: The maps are done, let’s get out of here.
[servant]: Quick, pack up!
[servant]: Mi… milady!
[SWL]: What’s wrong?
[servant]: Milady, stay away!
[Nameless Advisor]: The meal has just been prepared, why the rush to leave?
[Nameless]: It might not be delicious, but it’d a pity to waste.
[Nameless]: Fortunately I’ve always been good at the cleanup work.
[Nameless]: Besides, with such a show to entertain me, I suddenly have an appetite.
[Nameless]: Today I pretend to be a bandit, so that I can…
[Nameless]: steal a bite of a “horse”,
/* word-play, “ma” in “Sima” is the character for “horse” */
[servant]: Milady, we… we’ve been surrounded!
[Nameless]: and swallow a “mountain”.
/* word-play, “Shan” is the character for “mountain” */
[Nameless]: Ms. Shan.
[Nameless]: I’ve been waiting for you.
Someone submits under the rule of his enemy in hope of restoring his clan;
someone takes in the descendent of a dead friend in hope of obtaining the treasure.
One would come back to exact revenge once the Eastern region has been taken;
one would eliminate all traces of his crime once the treasure is obtained.
Their strategies go back and forth, just waiting for the other side to get careless.
[Ji Ling]: My Lord said it’s hard to get the truth out of mister Sun when he’s drunk.
[JL]: I say it’s also hard to attack mister Sun when he’s drunk.
[JL]: What a godly man.
[JL]: If one is a god, why would he miss a Seal from the world of men?
[SC]: If one serves a Lord, why would he declare himself the Emperor?
[JL]: Again I say, retaking the Eastern region,
[JL]: is not easy at all!
