Chapter 645: Invincible position
Na Mu Cuo arrogantly nodded before saying some words in East Qin language and then turning around, walking down with large steps. The black cape fluttered behind him and in the blink of an eye, he was already riding on that extraordinary horse of his. With his head held high, his body looked even muscular on the horse’s back.
“My family’s highness said that it doesn’t matter who competes, let’s begin immediately.” The translator translated Na Mu Cuo’s words.
Chu Shao Bai nodded. As he prepared to head down, he heard the translator say, “His highness said that in order to make the competition fair, the stele will be written in both country’s languages. One half will be East Qin language and the other half will be West Chu language, does your country have any objections?”
Hearing this, Chu Shao Bai’s feet stopped and he turned around.
Even Mo Chuan’s eyes froze as his heart began to sink.
The West Chu ministers couldn’t help whispering amongst themselves. They all felt something was wrong, but they couldn’t tell what exactly.
Only Mo Chuan and Chu Shao Bai understood what was wrong. This East Qin Crown Prince seemed to be acting fairly, but he was actually digging a large pit for the West Chu Country.
Because when the East Qin Country announced this “reading steles from horseback” competition method, everyone was shocked by how impossible this seemed. They never thought about the difference between the two languages and only after the translator spoke out did everyone remember this.
But they could not refute this idea because there was no reason to do so.
The people in the stands looked at Na Mu Cuo again as their eyes filled with awe and fear.
This East Qin Crown Prince, he really was the smartest person in the world. Like this, their East Qin was already in an invincible position.
This was because everyone had seen that the East Qin Crown Prince could understand the West Chu language as well as being able to read it, but what about King Jing An? He did not understand their East Qin language at all.
The advantages and disadvantages could be clearly seen.
It could be said there was no need to compete, they had a 99% chance of losing.
“Shao Bai, can you recognize the East Qin language?” Mo Chuan said in a low voice.
Chu Shao Bai gave a slight shake, “This minister does not, but this minister will go all out. This minister…..must win, for the citizens and for her!”
He forcefully clenched his fist as his eyes filled with determination. He turned around and walked down with large steps, mounting a snow white horse.
“Shao Bai, royal aunt believes you can surely win!” The Eldest Princess rushed to the side of the stands and loudly shouted down at him.
Chu Shao Bai raised his head and revealed a faint smile to the Eldest Princess that was filled with splendor.
Na Mu Cuo gave a snort as he revealed a look of impatience. He then muttered a few words to the translator in East Qin language.
The translator loudly said, “His highness has said that your country can write the words on the stell and the contents can be picked by your country, however it must be half East Qin language and half West Chu language. He said he wants you to be convinced of your loss!”
Hearing this, the West Chu people were filled with anger. Even Empress Dowager Zhou with a good control over her emotions heavily slammed down her cane as she whispered, “What kind of thing is this!”
On the other side, the East Qin envoys let out cries of praise.
Although this condition was very favourable to West Chu, the West Chu people’s hearts felt very heavy. So what if they wrote the contents of the stele? King Jing An did not understand the East Qin language, no matter how smart or good his memory is, he could not memorize every single East Qin language without a single word being wrong.
