Ravaging Times

chapter 221

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

[?]: Cao Cao’s army is certainly well trained.
/* rephrased */
[?]: It’s hard to predict how fast they can move.

[?]: Yes. Too bad we couldn’t find Liu Bei’s body before they arrive.

[?]: It’s even worse when they could bypass all of our ambush.

[?]: They saw through all of them?
[?]: I know how Cao Cao deploys his troops. But this time his men surpassed all my expectations.

chapter 221 In Small Steps

[Qin Yi Lu]: You mean… there is a tough opponent in this camp?

[Chen Gong]: Correct.
[CG]: So, what are their routes?

[QYL]: Gucheng’s troop appears to be Xiahou’s men.
[QYL]: And the southern troop is lead by either Yu Jin or Cao Hong.

[soldier]: Sir!

[soldier]: Yu Jin’s troop has went around our defenses and is heading southward.
[CG]: So it is.

[CG]: Old Qin, two of their troops got passed us.

[CG]: Two extraordinary men have come this time.

[QYL]: Looks like you’re excited.

[CG]: By leaps and bounds.
/* not sure if this would work; the original is rather Chen-Mou-style */

Who wouldn’t be excited by the prospect of defeating a strong opponent.

{sfx: pa~}

{sfx: pong~}

[soldier]: Nowhere to run, Zhang Fei!

More of them…

[soldier]: We’re in range.

{sfx: so~}

Oh no.

[soldier]: Haha, he’s mine!

{sfx: cha~ cha~}


[soldier]: Look out! Someone to our left!
[soldier]: Finish him!

{sfx: cha~}

[soldier]: Look out for his darts!

{sfx: shoo}

{sfx: shoo~}

{sfx: cha~}

[Liaoyuan Huo]: Hoo!

[soldier]: Stay calm! Swarm him!

{sfx: cha~}

[LYH]: Your wound is quite severe, Third Master.

{sfx: cha~}

[LYH]: Look out!

{sfx: cha~}

[Zhang Fei]: You…
[LYH]: Didn’t we agree to meet at Gucheng?

[LYH]: Why did you come here?

[ZF]: I…

[ZF]: I don’t know. These parts are full of Lü Bu’s army.
[ZF]: I’m afraid that, that…

[ZF]: once I get to Gucheng, there will only be…

[ZF]: only be…

{sfx: so~}

{sfx: cha~}

[ZF]: What… what’s that for?

[LYH]: I know you never trusted me.

[ZF]: You’re not trustworthy.
[LYH]: You’re right. You can suspect me, but…

[LYH]: You must never doubt my loyalty to my Lord!

[LYH]: And you can never make me think that my Lord is dead!
/* distorted */

[LYH]: Do you understand, Third Master?

[ZF]: Zi Long, I…

If Heaven is fair,
/* “If Heaven has eyes.” */

{Xiahou Dun’s camp}

everything would go smoothly.

[?]: That was close.

[?]: Almost couldn’t get to meet you, mister Liu.

[Liu Bei]: And you are…

[?]: I’m just a nobody.

[LB]: Only a nobody, huh… No wonder Cao Cao became this powerful.

[LB]: What’re you doing here?

[?]: You are famous;

[Sima Yi]: I just wanted to meet you in person.

Liu Bei couldn’t get his eyes off of him.

Then he let out a sigh.
