Ravaging Times

chapter 274

{Cao army . third encampment}

[?]: The second camp has arrived!

[?]: Pack up fast! The enemy is almost here!
[?]: Take everything. Don’t leave anything behind!

[?]: The Yuan army has reached the burial ground.
(“ten-thousand men burial ground“)

[?]: We almost didn’t make it.
[?]: So you mean… they were faced with something unexpected?

chapter 274 The Second Strange Man

[?]: Yes. Somehow they stopped advancing near the mass grave.

{Camp master of the third encampment, Han Hao}
[Han Hao]: The Yuan army has a weird way of deploying its troops. Who knows what they’re up to.

[?]: Sir!

[?]: What did you find?

[?]: The Yuan army is not resting. They were blocked!

[?]: The one who blocked them is that strange man!

[?]: You… you mean that friend of Chen Deng is still there?

[?]: Yes. It sounds like an upset coming from the Yuan army. Something big may have happened!

[HH]: Good for us that the Yuan army stopped.

[HH]: Listen up, we should still uproot and retreat back to the major defensive line according to Advisor Guo’s plan.
(simplified)

[?]: Sir, there is another man who refused to retreat.

[?]: How dare he disobey a military order?
[HH]: That’s impossible. I have no insubordinate soldier in my troop!

[?]: General Han is right. Our army has completely finished packing.

[?]: It’s just that he is not directly under our command.

[?]: And his rank is high, not someone I can…

{sfx: pong~}

{sfx: pa~}

[Yuan Tan]: Qiao Song!

[?]: Don’t be rash, old Han!

[?]: This guy is no joke!
(“…average type”)

{sfx: zing~}

[?]: Stay calm!

They have lost it.

Even for veterans like them this is a first.

When faced with this man,

we are like children.

[Liaoyuan Huo]: Get off!
(“dismount”)

[?]: Old Han!

[LYH]: Huff!

[LYH]: Get off!

{sfx: pong~}

{soil sfx}

[?]: Whoa!

{sfx: pa~}

{sfx: pong~}

All… all three finished.

{crowd noise}

[LYH]: Scram!

SCRAM~

[?]: Look out he’s coming up!
[?]: Hold the entrance!

[?]: Boy!

{sfx: ta}

{sfx: shoo~}

[LYH]: Get off!

{sfx: don~}

{sfx: ta}

[?]: Hold… hold your ground…

[?]: Hold…

[?]: ?

[YT]: Stay put!

[YT]: Stay calm! He… he’s just one man!

[LYH]: Huff.

[LYH]: There you are.
(“you are here”)

[LYH]: SCRAM!

{sfx: pong~}

{southern mass grave}

[?]: I found Li Lei!

[?]: No, that’s not his armor.
[?]: Shit, how do we tell without the head.

[?]: Dig faster. The Yuan army is already north of us. We won’t be able to hold this position.

[?]: You mean they stopped?

[?]: Yes. They might be facing some trouble at the mass grave near the northern third camp.

[?]:Cao Cao executed so many of brothers, boss, we can’t keep looking at a time like this…
(“…decapitated…”)

[?]: They died all because of me. Taking their remains back to their families is the least I can do.
(“I owe them too much and I can only bring their remains back to their family.”)

[?]: Boss…

[?]: Keep digging… I’m here…

[Zhang Liao]: No one shall get pass the reach of my sword.

He who holds his ground

will surpass Lü Bu a few years later as a God of War at Hefei.
(it’s like the second half of a Chinese couplet with the previous chapter’s last sentence)
