Reincarnation Paradise - Chapter 416
Tens of thousands of troops gathered in front of the frontier fortress. The frontier fortress army in white winter clothes was not conspicuous in the vast white snow.
They all knew that the war was coming, but they were not afraid. War often happened in the frontier fortress, which was only a common occurrence.
The army gathered in a mighty manner, and the Eyre brothers stood in the frontier fortress in a daze, witnessing the scene in front of them.
“What are they doing? An enemy kingdom army is coming to attack?”
Although Edward was an alchemist in the country, he did not know the concept of war.
“That’s not right, brother. These troops seem to be heading back to the country.”
“Going back to the country? Could it be…”
Edward thought of a terrible situation. Olivia Mira was about to rebel.
“What does she want to do? No, I can’t let this happen.”
Just as Edward wanted to turn around and rush out of the fortress, a figure stood in front of him.
“Little Shortie, don’t meddle in other people’s business.”
Su Xiao looked at Edward Eyre with a burning gaze.
“Who are you calling Little Shortie? And what do you want to do?”
“What do you want to do? Of course, it’s to attack Central City and overthrow someone’s rule.”
After getting Su Xiao’s answer, Edward’s pupils contracted.
“What about the citizens of Central City?”
“It’s up to fate.”
“What kind of joke is that? There are tens of thousands of people.”
“So what if there are tens of thousands of people?”
Edward’s breathing became heavy. If the northern army pressed down on the border and directly started a war with the central army, then the civilians of the central city would be in trouble. Cannon did not have long eyes.
“You should have heard everything when we were negotiating.”
Su Xiao suddenly laughed.
“I heard it… So what?”
Su Xiao stared at him with a smile.
Edward felt a chill run down his spine as if the smiling god of death was staring at him.
“Go find your father and tell him that the man’s plan has been interrupted. He has to participate in the final battle. Otherwise, no one can deal with the man in the bottle.”
Although Edward’s father was not strong to the extreme, his relationship with the man in the bottle was special. The man in the bottle was born from his blood.
“My father? He…”
Before Edward finished speaking, Su Xiao threw a piece of information at him. This was the information of the medium and small people in the bottle.
Edward hesitated for a moment and finally opened the information bag.
“How… How is that possible?”
“Nothing is impossible. This is the birth process of the medium and small person in the bottle. The country refining formation has already been activated once. Half of the Philosopher’s Stone produced by the country refining last time is in your father’s body. It is a Philosopher’s Stone that has hundreds of thousands of souls.”
Hoenheim is very important. This is the key to defeating the small, medium person in the bottle.
Edward stared blankly at the information in his hand.
“This is simply a demon’s behavior. But what does defeating the small — person in the bottle have to do with Hoenheim?”
“You don’t need to know. See you in Central City.”
Su Xiao turned and walked out of the fortress.
“Wait, the northern army can not be like this…”
Edward had not finished speaking when Su Xiao suddenly turned his head.
“Don’t meddle in other people’s business. If you block my way, I will kill you.”
Su Xiao’s short black hair moved without wind, and his right hand inadvertently pressed on the hilt of the dragon flash.
“Then let’s kill and see.”
Edward put his hands together, and the blue light flashed.
“Ah —, it’s just a joke. You can’t die yet, important human pillar.”
Su Xiao turned around and left. Edward stood in place, his legs trembling for some reason.
“Not good, very bad. Why does this guy give me a feeling that he is more dangerous than the small person in the bottle? Arsen, Arsen…”
Edward turned around and saw his brother standing in place.
“The pendant in that person’s hand, do you see it, brother?”
Arsen spoke with a trembling voice.
Edward tried his best to recall and soon recalled the pendant in Su Xiao’s hand.
“That is… Winry’s pendant?!”
Winry Rockbell, which was also Edward’s childhood sweetheart.
“This bastard, does she mean Winry?”
Edward was furious and immediately rushed in the direction where Su Xiao had left.
“Brother, don’t go. We will leave immediately and find Winry.”
Edward forced himself to calm down.
“Yes, go find Wendy first, and then… go to the central city to stop the war.”
The Eyre brothers left the fortress in a hurry. There were only a few thousand troops left in the fortress, which was to prevent the enemy country from suddenly attacking.
Two days after the march.
Carnot Town was located in the center of the northwest frontier fortress and the central city. Although there were not many residents here, they were heavily guarded because there was a large station.
Tens of thousands of troops wanted to go to the central city. It was impossible to walk. Moreover, they had to carry cannons and tanks. Otherwise, they could not start a war.
Carnot Town’s train station had a strategic significance. If one wanted to go to Central City, they first had to take down this place. After taking down the Carnot train station, the supply would also be solved later.
Twenty thousand central troops had been transferred here. The northern army had mobilized a large force, and the central army was not blind. Of course, they knew the purpose of the northern army.
Along the way, they received countless warnings from the central army. Olivia led the army to Carnot Town.
Thousands of tanks drove slowly, leaving tracks on the shallow snow.
The northern army dispatched more than 50,000 people, an average of more than 50 people per tank.
These 50 people were not sitting inside the tank, and these people were sitting inside the tank.
Su Xiao sat on the shell of a tank. From a distance, Carnot Town had appeared in sight. It was a peaceful town.
Half a kilometer in front of Carnot Town, a row of trenches had been dug up. The yellow sandbags were piled in front of the trenches, and the infantry of the central army was hidden in the trenches.
“Byakuya, the battle is about to begin. Don’t sit on the tank.”
Olivia put down the telescope in her hand.
“How many enemies are there?”
“About twenty to thirty thousand, they are all straw bags, the trenches dug like manure pits.”
“After the war, I will be in charge of the enemy’s commander.”
Su Xiao was not ready to deal with ordinary soldiers in the war. That wasn’t very sensible. Beheading was the fastest.
“Good, then it is the war.”
Just as Olivia finished speaking, a loud shout came from the trench in front of them.
“Olivia Mira Armstrong, surrender. Seeing that you are the former Major General, the Grand President will let you live.”
A loud shout came from the trench, and no one was seen. It seemed that the person who shouted did not have the guts.
“Battle formation, gather, prepare to fight!”
Thousands of tanks lined up in a row. Behind each tank, there was more than fifty infantry. The tanks moved forward, and the infantry followed closely behind.
This was the appearance of a large-scale war in the era of firearms. The tanks were in front, and the infantry was behind.
The main canons of the tanks kept firing shells, and the trenches hundreds of meters away were blown up into pieces.
A military officer from the central army was stunned by the cannon fire. He trembled as he hid behind the trench. He had only become a second lieutenant because of his relatives.
He had never seen the appearance of war before. When the cannon sounded, the straw bag’s nature was exposed.
The wind-breaking was heard, and a black cannonball flew over. The shell looked like a bullet that had been magnified dozens of times.
The artillery shell was stuck in the soil of the trench and landed right next to the second lieutenant.
The second lieutenant turned his head to look, wanting to see what it was.
The artillery shell exploded. The explosive power of the artillery shell was not terrifying. The truly terrifying thing was the scattered shrapnel. The second lieutenant was directly hit into a plug by the shrapnel and died forty-three seconds after the battle.
