Upon the mentioning of the gold, everyone’s eyes brightened. Su Ren chuckled and asked, “How come?”
Gu Yun confidently laughed. She was just about to open her mouth to explain when Su Ling’s husky voice was heard, “That place is not very far away from the hideout location she mentioned before. In addition, compared to the surroundings, the topography is the most complicated one: there are many small paths that are very slippery. This would ease the transport of gold to any direction.”
Gu Yun shrugged. It had been said by someone else, she didn’t have to say anything.
Han Shu was overjoyed. Brightly he said, “This is great. Now we know where their lair is and where they hid the gold. Tomorrow, we can quickly raid them. This will definitely hit them hard!”
Compare to Han Shu’s level of excitement, Yu Shi Jun was a lot calmer. He said, “The land structure there is very complicated. How are we going to send the troops in with discretion?”
Once again they spoke at the same time. Gu Yun gently raised her eyebrow, feeling a little bit helpless and frustrated. Su Ling’s face was black, making it hard to guess his feelings. It looked like there was always something wrong today, how did they become so understanding of each other?
Under everybody’s attention, Gu Yun acted like nothing’s wrong and continued to study the map. Su Ling’s eagle eyes glanced through everybody, making them afraid to look at Su Ling and Gu Yun again.
Being glared by Su Ling like that, several of them acted like they knew nothing and pretended to be busy talking about the case…
“That’s right! A fire attack is a really good suggestion!”
“Yes! The forest’s unpredictable terrain is their best advantage. Burning the area of their hideout will make it harder for them to escape.”
The three people were ‘singing’ in harmony. Only Lou Mu Hai didn’t follow suit and seriously said, “From the map, we can see that the area is very inaccessible. I’m afraid, even if there is no vegetation covering it, it will still be difficult to catch them there.”
Su Ren, who was ‘singing’ with Han Shun and Yu Shi Jun, seriously replied, “The mission, this time, focuses on the gold, not the rebels. Even if we can’t catch them, it would still give them quite a blow. Wanting to settle them down is not an easy task.”
Han Shu nodded and added, “A fire attack is good. However, inside the rainforest, it is so humid…”
“Use petrol (lamp oil) and sulphur to ignite. As long as it doesn’t rain, we can definitely burn a small area!” Their facial expressions changed rather quickly. Su Ling was surprisingly calm and continued his explanation. Gu Yun couldn’t help but roll her eyes.
“Okay then, this old subject will go back to the city and prepare. Before noon tomorrow, the items will be fully prepared.” Su Ling who acted as military advisor had spoken, Lou Mu Hai could only fully cooperate.
“Then, I will trust Old General Lou. Tomorrow noon, we will meet again.”
“Good!” In a light-spirited manner, Lou Mu Hai strode out.
Su Ling’s attention was back to the table, immediately asking them to continue discussing the attack strategy, “Ren, Han Shu, Yu Shi Jun, please speak your opinions regarding the distribution of the soldiers and attack strategy for tomorrow’s raid.”
“Aye.” The trio spoke at once.
Gu Yun stretched her waist. They were discussing military things, not her matter. It was better that she left. Passing the table, Gu Yun quietly opened the tent’s curtain. An icy chilly voice was heard behind her, “Stop.”
