Lord of Flames - Chapter 69
Chapter 69. The Lion Race’s pursuit! Charge!
Night after night, three or five Cat Tribe members walked through the forest and headed towards the Miracle Wilderness.
The Cat Tribe had excellent night vision, coupled with the clear weather and moonlight, no one lit a torch.
More than a hundred thousand Cat Tribe members had long received the orders of their Chief, no one spoke.
This great migration was quietly proceeding under the night sky.
As for Meng Ying and the 1,000 Centaur soldiers, they stayed at the back, protecting the Cat Race from behind.
Princess Lotte and the Cat Clan’s Chief were at the end.
The Cat Tribe’s soldiers were not strong.
In the past, due to the care of the Tiger Tribe, the Cat Tribe did not have many soldiers.
The entire Cat Clan only had four to five thousand soldiers.
If they fought with the Lion Tribe, a thousand powerful Lion Tribe soldiers would be enough to kill all the Cat Tribe’s soldiers.
Therefore, with these warriors, Meng Ying had no hope at all. They had all sent the Cat Clan Chief to help the Cat Clan carry their belongings.
The team’s speed was not fast.
One night passed, and they had walked over a hundred kilometers.
According to this time, it would take six days for the entire Cat Clan to reach the Miracle Wasteland because it was impossible for the Cat Clan to not slow down and rest!
They took more than twice as much time than Princess Lotte did.
However, this was normal. Princess Lotte had only brought a dozen or so people, and they were all warriors with good physical strength. And now, out of the hundred thousand or so Cat Tribe members, the old and the young accounted for a large proportion.
This speed was already extremely fast.
“Ma’am, I haven’t noticed any movement from the Lion Tribe yet.”
Behind him, on the back of a Centaur soldier, a Fox soldier said.
Meng Ying nodded and said, “Keep on alert, increase the alert range!”
That Centaur carried the Fox Race warrior and left.
Along the way, soldiers from the rear came back to report the situation.
Meng Ying did a good job of reconnaissance!
The large force continued.
This time, to complete the migration as soon as possible, the majority of the Cat Tribe did not make any detours.
There was no way to completely hide such a large amount of people.
It would be better to get closer and hurry up!
At noon, the large army finally left Cat Tribe’s territory and entered the territory of another Orcish Tribe, the Kobold Tribe!
The Cat Clan’s movements caused many Kobolds to become curious.
“The Kobolds are eager for money. I’ve given some money to their Clan leader. They shouldn’t have leaked any information.”
The Cat Clan’s Chief said to Meng Ying.
Meng Ying nodded.
The large army continued forward.
Two days later, the Cat Tribe members traveled day and night. They only rested for a short amount of time at night, but they only walked less than four hundred kilometers.
They had yet to reach the halfway mark!
At this moment, soldiers guarding the back brought a piece of bad news:
The Lion Tribe was chasing after them!
Hearing this news, the Cat Clan’s Chief and Princess Lotte couldn’t help but become nervous.
“How many people are there in the Lion Tribe? How far are they from us?” Meng Ying asked.
“My Lady, there aren’t many people in the Lion Tribe. There are about a thousand or so people, less than fifty kilometers away from us.” The Centaur soldier said.
It was less than fifty kilometers away. For the Elite Lion soldiers, even if they were to travel in the forest, they would only arrive in a few minutes at most!
Even if a hundred thousand people from the Cat Clan were to use all their strength to escape, they would not be able to escape!
“The Lion Tribe is still chasing after the Tiger Tribe. This should be the Lion Tribe’s army in Lion
Pass.” The Cat Clan Chief said.
Meng Ying pondered for a moment, then said to the Cat Clan Chief, “Tell your Clan members to speed up. Leave these Lion Clan warriors to us. After you leave, if you encounter any danger, you can pray to the great Lord of Flames. The Lord of Flames will send down help to you.”
The Cat Clan Chief nodded. Together with Lotte, she urged the exhausted Cat Clan to speed up.
When the Cat Tribe heard of the Lion Tribe’s impending arrival, no matter how exhausted they were, they all used all their strength to charge forward!
“Lady Meng Ying, how are we going to fight?” After the Cat Clan Chief left, the Centaur Clan Chief asked.
Meng Ying pondered for a moment before asking, “What do you think?”
The Centaur Clan leader said, “The more flat ground our soldiers have, the greater the advantage they have. The place we passed just now has a small plane!”
Meng Ying agreed, “Alright!”
In the forest, a large number of Lion Race warriors were running.
These Lion Tribe warriors were clad in leather armor. There were some mysterious symbols on their leather armor.
Needless to say, these mysterious symbols had certain magical protection effects.
Every one of them was strong and swift. When they ran through the forest, they liked to have all four limbs on the ground.
When they were fighting, they would stand up and draw out their weapons, giving their opponents a painful blow!
“These Cat Clansmen dare to escape. The Chief of the Cat Clan dares to do so. If it wasn’t for the Kobold Clan’s warning, perhaps they might have escaped!”
In front of the group was an iron armored Lion.
This Lion man was exceptionally tall, almost five meters tall.
This was a powerful Lion, and it was also the leader of this group of Lion Race warriors!
“Leader Rick, the Cat Clan has over a hundred thousand people. Shall we attack them directly?” A Lion asked.
Rick said with a snort, “So what if they have over one hundred thousand people? There are less than ten thousand people who can fight. Even if we only have one thousand people, we’re more than enough to defeat ten thousand sick Cats. We didn’t participate in this war against the Tiger Tribe, so we didn’t get any merit points. Now that opportunity has already presented before me, it’s time to destroy the Cat Tribe and obtain the merit points!”
“Milord is right!”
Seeing this, the nearby Lion immediately agreed.
This Lion didn’t think that there was anything difficult to deal with.
As the ‘Royal Clan’, the Lion Tribe had all come out. These Lion Tribe warriors were all experienced in hundreds of battles, and their morale was exceptionally high. These thousand Lion Tribe warriors could walk freely within many Clans in the Orcish Kingdom!
This group of Lion Tribesmen was very fast. In just ten minutes, they had climbed a mountain and passed through the dense forest.
A plain appeared in his vision.
This plain was not big, only a few kilometers wide.
As soon as a thousand Lion Tribe got out of the dense forest, they saw the armored Centaur soldiers on the opposite side of the plain!
“Leader Rick look, Centaur!”
The Lion Warrior beside Rick said.
The leader roared. Immediately, more than a thousand Lion Tribe soldiers slowed down and arrived at the edge of the plain. They tidied up the formation and stood with the Centaur across the plain.
“From the Kobold’s report, there are many Centaur behind the Cat Clan’s main force. These people are quite bold, actually daring to help the Cat Clan!” The leader snorted lightly.
“Milord, look! These people are all covered in armor!”
The Lion Warrior beside Rick exclaimed.
Under the sunlight, the armor on the 1,000 Centaur soldiers looked exceptionally bright!
Bright and neat!
In the eyes of these Lions, they were simply blind!
Their bodies were leather armor.
However, these Centaur soldiers were wearing such bright and orderly iron armor!
The leader Rick naturally saw it as well!
“Where did these Centaurs come from?”
The leader was similarly puzzled.
During the pursuit, it had heard the Kobold describe the Centaur.
However, it did not believe them.
Centaur warriors were indeed strong.
However, compared to the Lion Race warriors who had won hundreds of battles, they were still far inferior.
But now, the movements of the Centaur soldiers made Rick’s heartbeat a little bit faster
“Milord, do you want to talk to them?” The Lion Warrior beside Rick asked.
At this moment, on the other side of the plain, the Centaur Chief had already issued an order.
Immediately, the upper half of all the troops began to lean forward. This was a charging posture!
“Kill!” The Centaur Tribe leader shouted.
Following that, all the Centaur warriors shouted at the same time and charged towards the Lion Tribe soldiers opposite the plain!
A great battle was imminent!
