Ravaging Times

chapter 232


[?]: We can’t hold this position any longer!

[Xu Huang]: You officers retreat first!

[officer]: No, you first, General!

chapter 232 Risking Everything

[?]: Leaving?

[HX]: State your name!

[Sun Guan]: Sun Guan, of Mount Tai!

{sfx: zing~}

[Wu Dun]: Wu Dun!

{sfx: don~}

{sfx: cha}

{sfx: shoo~}

[WD]: Down.

{sfx: pong~}

[SG]: Down.

{sfx: pa}

{sfx: cha~}

[WD]: Not bad!

[SG]: I said get down!

Their joint-attack is well rehearsed!

{sfx: pa~}

{sfx: pa}

{sfx: pong~}

[Chang Xi]: Chang Xi!
[Yin Li]: Yin Li!

[XH]: Whoa!

{sfx: pong~}

{sfx: pa~}

{sfx: loon~}

{sfx: sha~}

Crazy (powerful)! No wonder hostiles stayed away from the Mount Tai region!

[?]: Let him go! Taking Xiao pass is more important!

[?]: Let Zhang Liao handle the rest.
[?]: We should join up with Gao Shun up ahead!

Gao Shun and Zhang Liao…?

[captain]: General Xu, our reinforcements have been pushed back by Zhang Liao!

[XH]: Everyone retreat through our camp’s eastern exit! Hurry!

By the afternoon Cao’s Xuzhou invading force has been torn apart by troops headed by Gao Shun’s cavalry.

{Xiao Pass}

[?]: Sir! Xu Huang’s camp has been defeated. Enemy forces will arrive soon!
[?]: Sir! Our second rations depot has been taken by Gao Shun!

[Cao Cao]: My, my. We’ve been losing battle after battle within just a few days, and our number dwindles.

[?]: Sir! General Cao Hong has been surrounded. Things look dire!

[CC]: Miao Cai, Cao Hong and the others can’t hold out much longer; better not leave them be.
(Miao Cai is Xiahou Yuan’s courtesy name)

[CC]: Get them back here.
[Xiahou Yuan]: Yessir!

[XHY]: Officer, gather three thousand men!
[?]: Three thousand. Yessir!

[official]: My Lord, Advisor Xun said he can’t send us more men – we’re on our own!

[Yu Jin]: That means Yuan Shao has made his move.

[YJ]: The thing that worries me the most is that our small group of archers can’t take on Gao Shun’s cavalry.

[CC]: And Lü Bu hasn’t even enter the scene. But don’t worry, Guo Jia will come up with a plan.

[CC]: Now it is essential that we do what he says.
[YJ]: Yessir.

[scout]: The enemy is coming!

{sfx: loom~}

[scout]: Enemy flag! Mount Tai! It’s Sun Guan’s troop!
[scout]: They’re coming in hard and fast; guards hold your positions!

[general]: My Lord, our Generals have all been defeated so Lü Bu will certainly attack here in full force!
[general]: Their momentum is high; it’s not good for us to hold out!

[?]: Let’s withdraw from Xuzhou, my Lord!

{sfx: dong~}

{sfx: dong~ dong~}

[WD]: Ho, the Cao army is starting their war drums.

[SG]: Good. Heedless fools, that’s just what I wanted.

[CX]: Start our drums. Let’s shake their morale some more!

[WD]: Line up! Request commanding officers to duel!

{sfx: dong~ dong~}

{sfx: dong~ dong~}

{sfx: dong~}

[?]: Who is drumming without permission?

[?]: How dare you to do so without our Lord’s order!

[?]: Go ask him yourself.

[CC]: Hoo, you are finally here.

[?]: These few battles have cost us a lot. We’ll lose even with Heaven’s blessing.

[CC]: Guo Jia must have his reasons for entrusting the task to you.

[?]: I will place my bet first to calm the morale.

[Jia Xu]: Lü Bu’s defeat, or my head.

[JX]: Still the same old trick.

[JX]: I ask for… my Lord’s sacrifice.

Still the same old trick.
