The Lingxi City was built on a plain with fertile land and sufficient water. On the plain, it was difficult to set up an ambush if there was a battle. On the East and west sides of the Lingxi City, there were two mountains with dense forests. The mountain in the East was relatively flat, and it extended for dozens of miles along the Qianshui River. The mountain in the West was steep and the forest was more dense, but it was also very dangerous because beasts roamed wild there.

Yun Shang chose the mountain in the East as the destination for her visit today. She rode out of the city and headed for the Langya Mountain.

They were just out of the city, when they saw the way up the mountain. Although there was no official road to the mountain, it was not steep. Yun Shang directly rode up the mountain. After passing through more than half of the forest, they found it became more dense and the horse seemed to be tired. Yun Shang got off the horse and led it up the mountain.

Most of the trees in the forest were spruces and cypresses, and the azaleas were blooming brightly.

They had walked for more than two hours, but Yun Shang didn't see anything wrong. She remembered the last experience when she investigated the terrain like this. It seemed to be during the battle in the KY City. It was during that terrain investigation that she got to know Liu Yinfeng.

At that time, she was trapped in the small yard by Liu Yinfeng's North Seven Stars Array. At last, it was also Luo Qingyan who saved her.

Thinking of this, Yun Shang smiled. However, she suddenly stopped. North Seven Stars Array? If she remembered correctly, it seemed that the State of Yelang had never had an array in the battlefield since ancient times. What they relied on in the battles were their brave soldiers and valiant horses. It was highly possible that Cangjue Qingsu knew nothing about the array.

A light flashed in Yun Shang's eyes. She had been apprenticed to Qing Cang, the array master. Although Yun Shang was too busy to learn much from Qing Cang, she had read the array book given by Qing Cang carefully. She could even draw every array in it.

If they fought with the array, it might be possible to have victories in spite of being weaker and outnumbered.

Yun Shang was thinking about it, when the secret guard behind her exclaimed, "Master, look, there seems to be smoke over there."

Yun Shang looked in the direction pointed by the secret guard and saw a black smoke rising from the forest in the distance. Yun Shang looked at the smoke carefully. It was small, and it should not be burned from wet leaves, but dry things. Besides, with such an only smoke nearby there should not be a large-scale garrison.

"Probe," Yun Shang ordered concisely.

The secret guard responded and quickly hid away in the forest.

Although she didn't think there would be a large number of soldiers stationed there, Yun Shang was also worried that it would be some spy sent by the State of Yelang, so she hid under a protruding stone.

The secret guard moved very fast. Not long after, he came back and reported, "Master, there is a thatched hut in the distance. I think it should be a

Hearing this, Zhao Yingjie answered yes. Then he turned around and said to a general behind him, "General Li, you have the inspection today, please."

General Li responded in a hurry. Then he stood up, bowed to Yun Shang, got on his horse, and left with the soldiers. Zhao Yingjie then threw the reins to the soldiers guarding the camp and said respectfully to Yun Shang, "Your majesty, this way please."

The general camp was in the middle of the whole camp. As soon as Yun Shang entered, she saw Luo Qingyan standing behind the table, drawing something on the long map.

"Your Majesty," Yun Shang greeted with a smile.

Luo Qingyan looked up and smiled, "you're back?"

Yun Shang nodded slightly and walked forward,. "Didn't you say that Cangjue Qingsu would be here to fight today?"

Luo Qingyan nodded and smiled, "yes, but he was scared away by me right away."

Yun Shang knew it wouldn't be that simple, but since Luo Qingyan didn't want to tell her, she wouldn't ask. She just asked softly, "Do you have any news about their former majesties?"

"When the State of Yelang called for battle this morning, they were taken to stand on a carriage as a threat to us," Luo Qingyan said casually as usual.

Yun Shang was worried. Luo Qingyan added, "But it doesn't matter. They looked fine."

Obviously, Luo Qingyan didn't want Yun Shang to worry too much, so he changed the topic quickly, "I heard that you went to the Langya mountain today? Have you found anything? "

Yun Shang nodded slightly, "Yes."

Then she turned to look at Zhao Yingjie, "General Zhao, do you know that there are some old and weak people in the city who can't escape to other cities, so they are now hiding in the mountain?"

Zhao Yingjie nodded slightly, "Yes, there are a lot of them. But we have specifically investigated them. They are indeed ordinary people."

Hearing this, Yun Shang shook her head, with disapproval in her eyes, "No, I found that there were spies from the State of Yelang sneaking into the mountain. Although only two people were found today, I'm afraid the real number of the spies is not small."
