“As a high ranking military officer, you can’t be discouraged by a single success or failure. If you are like this, what about the soldiers under you?” Ming Yu consoled Mo Jiang for half a day, it was not easy for Mo Jiang to dispel the guilt in his heart.

“I have received Your Highness teaching.” Mo Jiang cupped his hands in salute. He knew what His Highness meant. No matter what he can’t fail to live up to His Highness’s sincere intention. 

“Speaking of which, Ben Wang is also at fault. I had underestimated the strength of my opponents. We’re not in a rush, there will be next time. Even if we all lose this time, we can make an appointment for the next drill, anyways, there is sparring partner, isn’t there?” After he finished speaking, he winked in the direction of Xie Yixiu.

Xie Yixiu couldn’t bear to look at him. Wen Yuzhao directly supported his forehead, Wangye, do you want to blatantly ask the Red-Robe Army to be your guards’ sparring partners? However, what he was more curious about was that Xie Yixiu did not look unhappy, and seemed to acquiesce to Ming Yu’s statement.

In fact, Xie Yixiu was also very interested in such a drill. Training soldiers, how to train, letting other people be sparring partners without training alone by themself; this confrontation drill method that Ming Yu came up with was indeed good, which was one of the reasons why he did not refuse in the first place.

By the time the guard battalion genuinely grows, maybe it will produce a sense of urgency in the Red-Robed soldiers. It has to be said that the Red-Robed Army has stood on a high place for too long making the soldiers develop wanton pride. Without saying anything about how an arrogant army will be bound to lose, everyone understood that, now that he is still in the Red Robe Army, he may be able to conscientiously support the victory of every battle. But there is no certainty. If he wasn’t here, maybe a defeat would wipe out this proud army, which he didn’t want to see.

With the pursuit and progress of the guard battalion, they can also realize that there doesn’t exist only one iron army under the sky. In this way, joint progress is also a good thing.

Wen Yuzhao’s right thumb and index finger rubbed his chin, his eyes kept swirling around Ming Yu and Xie Yixiu, did he neglect something?

“Soldiers always have to have a process of growing up. Without encountering setbacks and failures, they will not become a perfect soldier. It is better to fail now than to lose on the real battlefield, right? At the very least, you can learn your lesson and start all over again. ”

Ming Yu’s words made everyone ponder. This made a lot of sense. General Wei nodded in agreement. That’s right, when he returns, his garrison should also follow this model and get things done without losing the soldiers’ spirits by using a few rounds of these confrontation drills which could also improve their combat capabilities.

However, when his eyes fell on Xie Yixiu, he immediately dispelled this thought. Not everyone will follow this rule, just like Xie Yixiu, a genius who has not been defeated since he was seventeen years old.

At this time, Ming Yu also remembered Xie Yixiu’s situation, such a nevildoer was not an ordinary person at all. He touched his nose awkwardly and said with a grin: “Of course, there are always exceptions to everything. General Xie is not the same as ordinary people, naturally he is not among them. Think about it, there is only one battle general in this world, which is not something that ordinary people can reach. ”

For Ming Yu’s praise, Xie Yixiu did not blink an eye, “Wang Ye is also very good, since he can make the Red-Robed Army willing to be a sparring partner. This world also only has one Wangye.”

“Clang!” The tea bowl that Wen Yuzhao had just held in his hand suddenly fell to the ground and shattered! Just like his three views, it shattered to the ground.

Everyone turned their heads to look at him, he reached out and touched the sweat that did not exist in the corner of his forehead. Embarrassed, he smiled and said, “Excuse me, I slipped my hand! Haha!”

F*ck! He was scared by him, okay? Xie Yixiu, who has just exchanged compliments with Wangye, is not their general, right? Definitely not! Who is their general? How is it possible to say such a thing? His weakness must have been caught by Wangye so he is making threats and promises. He had no choice but to praise a person like this! General, if you’re threatened, blink your eyes!

Xie Yixiu looked at him coldly. Wen Yuzhao shivered and calmed down a bit. It seems that their general has not changed!

Wen Yuzhao often convulsed, those who knew him well had long been accustomed to it, and it was not strange to see it. Ming Yu asked him a few words of concern, after hearing that he’s fine, he didn’t ask anything more but discussed with everyone to rehearse the matter of the drill.

Mo Jiang naturally went down to make arrangements. Following this was a detect and investigation, ambush and counter-ambush. This project was Ming Yu’s, it was not easy to start up. Their guard battalion had been training these past few months in this area, so they’re relatively well prepared. Using their own strengths to attack the other’s weaknesses, even if they lose, they will not lose so unsightly.

Strategies for detecting ambushes were diverse, everyone who is of a general rank knew the importance of these strategies in war. Ming Yu being capable of putting it forward as a drill project shows that he still has some confidence, but it is a pity that he cannot personally observe it from the sidelines.

At this time, Ming Yu’s face also showed a bit of eagerness. He raised his hand to summon a soldier and whispered a few words, the soldier understood and trotted out of the tent.

Not long after, the soldier ran in again and replied, “Wangye, Elder Huang has come.”

Ming Yu was stunned, “He came personally?” Wasn’t it up to our people to pick it up? Why did he make a trip himself? ”

His voice just fell when there came a hearty laugh at the door of the tent. “Wangye, I am not that old to be unable to make a trip. This kind of gold and precious item, I was not at ease sending it off with someone else.” 

Hearing this voice, Ming Yu had already went to greet him. Everyone was pondering in their hearts who this man was, who could actually make Wangye go up personally to greet him. When they saw Ming Yu, he was already back while lending an arm to support an old man with white beard and hair inside. 

The man was hunched over, wind and frost of years outlining a series of folds on his face. He looked like a very ordinary old man, but Ming Yu’s respectful attitude made people a little confused.

After he stood still, the old man was going to bow down to Ming Yu when Ming Yu hurriedly stopped him, “Elder Huang, Ben Wang has long said that there is no need for courtesy. ”

“Etiquette cannot be abandoned.” Elder Huang insisted.

He was grateful to Wangye, but who among the craftsmen who followed Wang Ye was not grateful? They were the lowest craftsmen, doing the hardest, most tiring and complicated work, and they were yelled at and insulted and lashed at every day.

When Wangye left the capital, he specially went to the craftsman’s camp, selected various craftsmen, and asked them if they would go west with him. He did not insisted on taking people and even guaranteed that anyone who goes with him will never be treated badly. Some people wanted safety and stability, not willing to take risks, while some people simply broke the jar and moved. People move to live, trees move to death, no matter how bad it is, it is better to follow Wangye to fight.

He was so old, he should not have followed his blind coaxing, but at that time he heard Wangye said a sentence, “You are all useful people, people who can create miracles.”

He had lived most of his life, from apprenticeship to now, but in the scornful eyes of others, all he heard in his ears were insults and yells, it was the first time he had heard someone praising them, saying that they were useful people. At this moment, he finally understood how precious it was to get the trust of others, and at that time he first understood what is called respect, Just because of this sentence, he was ready to offer his life in sacrifice to repay the kindness and recognition of his worth.

So he was the first to stand up, willing to follow the young prince to go west to achieve something.

The young craftsmen who were still a little wobbly saw Elder Huang standing up, so they made up their minds and expressed their willingness to follow Wangye. In this way, dozens to hundreds of craftsmen like them joined the westbound team.

And Wangye really did not treat them badly. Since he came here and settled down, he has served good food and drinks every day. This should not be the treatment that craftsmen should have. At the beginning everyone was still nervous, they were used to their struggling days so the sudden change made everyone a little uncomfortable.

Later, Wangye summoned them and told them his future plans. They were divided into groups, assigned tasks, and were specially allocated a sum of silver, saying it was a research fund or something. They were allowed to take out their own craftsmanship, and work on their proudest skills.

Sticking to the rules and polishing your own skills, inventing and creating novelties; with a word, silver money is given to you; as long as you spend it, as long as you can have satisfactory results, then all the honour and glory will be awarded as they deserve.

It is precisely because of this that the enthusiasm of the craftsmen was unprecedentedly high, even Elder Huang, walked with the wind as if he was a teenager again.

Today, this thing was something that Wangye had ordered them to do. Wangye explained the principles of this thing to them one by one, and then allowed them to start making it. It was simple to explain, but hard to do. Repeated practice, failing countless times, until today, they barely made a finished product. No, he was afraid that Wangye was in a hurry, so as soon as the thing was ready, he hurriedly sent it over.

Ming Yu was indeed very anxious. He waved his hand, was not polite, and directly said: “Don’t be like that, the item is all done?” 

Everyone didn’t understand what was the thing that made Ming Yu anxious, as a prince, what hadn’t he seen? How can he be so desperate for an item like this.

Elder Huang smiled: “We hurried it over and was able to make it. I was afraid of any mishap so I delivered it myself.” With that, he carefully removed a small wooden box tied to his back.

Ming Yu also did not use someone else’s hand, he personally took it, and then gently placed it on the small wooden table.

“Wangye, open it to see if it is the same as what you said.”

Ming Yu’s heart beat a little faster, but he didn’t hesitate. He opened the wooden box, which was wrapped in layer after layer of soft cloth, all eyes fixed on this thing. Everyone was curious, what’s going on here?

With Ming Yu’s movements, the soft cloth was uncovered layer by layer, revealing a long wooden cylindrical object.

When everyone saw the item, they couldn’t help but be a little disappointed. They thought, what kind of a valuable and good thing could it be, it turns out to be just a thing made of wood. What can this thing do?

Ming Yu’s smiling eyebrows bent. He reached out to hold the thing in his hand and gently rubbed the smooth surface. It can be seen that the craftsmen of the production team were very careful, even the surface was polished smooth and flat.

Ming Yu said heartily, “Elder Huang, you have worked hard. ”

Elder Huang shook his head and said gratefully, “Wangye is too much, this is my duty and same for the others. As long as we can be of help for Wangye, we have already received honour.” Wangye was tolerant and generous. His temperament was kind and gentle making them all incomparably happy.

In fact, how could they have the ability to make such an exquisite thing? It was all from the guidance of His Highness. Speaking of which, Wangye truly was brilliant, talented, and had a heart of seven apertures. (smart and attentive)

Things that no one had ever thought of, after being explained by His Highness, they could actually make things that could conquer the heavens and the earth.

When the finished product came out, he saw its use for the first time. His heart was shocked beyond belief. Now he knew what Wangye said at the beginning. If they followed him, it was true that they would create miracles, and they really did create miracles.

It is their blessing to be able to do things with such a Wangye. Everyone was eager to do something more for Wangye and will do their best to complete any command.
