Chapter 415

Chapter 415: The Hearts of the People Return, the White Elephants Join the Great War!

In front, there are a million rebels, and behind, there are another million rebels, plus the 100,000 elite troops of Great Wu. This situation is even more dire than three months ago. How can they continue to fight? It’s impossible!

Not only is White Elephant King shocked, but the other White Elephant generals are also in despair. “It’s over! With so many people coming at us, our 300,000 army can’t hold them off!”

“We need to escape quickly, or it’ll be too late!”

“Yes, let’s retreat for now. We must live to fight another day!”

“Your Majesty, we can’t hesitate any longer!”

At this moment, whether in front or behind, the White Elephant citizens are all charging toward the defending city, wanting to break through the oppressive rule and welcome Lin Beifan into the city.

As far as the eye can see, it’s densely packed with people, a sea of humanity! The White Elephant King and the officials within the city are like boats adrift in the ocean, completely isolated.

At this moment, Lin Beifan raises his arm and shouts, “Fellow citizens of White Elephant Country, I have come as invited! Now is the time when heaven and earth unite in strength. Let us join hands to overthrow the oppressive rule of White Elephant Country!”

The White Elephant citizens are extremely excited. “Overthrow the corrupt court of White Elephant Country!”

“Open the city gates, welcome the Prime Minister!”

“Change the world, right now!”

This wave of enthusiasm sweeps across the land!

Everyone excitedly rushes towards the city gates, some even daring to climb the city walls.

The White Elephant King and others are frightened, their faces pale. “What should we do? Should we surrender and admit defeat?”

“If we continue to fight, there will be no way out. We’ll be torn apart by these crazed people!”

“I think we should escape!”

The White Elephant King roars, “No! We haven’t lost yet! Release the White Elephant Army and crush them!” The city gates on both sides thunderously open.

Following that, the White Elephant’s elite army, the White Elephant Army, emerges from the city gates. They are colossal gray-white elephants, over twenty feet tall, with legs thicker than a grown person’s waist, and their massive bodies are like mobile houses.

They charge forward, shaking the ground and causing great fear.

“Be careful! White Elephants are extremely dangerous!”

“Quick, run! White Elephants are dangerous!”

The citizens of White Elephant Country fled for their lives.

Because no one knew the terror of White Elephants better than them. These terrifying giant elephants could trample several people with a single step and flick their noses to send dozens of people flying. They were truly the kings of land warfare, unmatched by anyone. White Elephant King, standing on the city wall, laughed maniacally, “Haha! You rebellious commoners, let’s see if you dare to resist me! White Elephant Army, tear them apart, crush them! Leave no one alive!”

Trumpeting loudly, the White Elephants emitted long, resonant calls one after another. Then, they initiated their even more ferocious attacks.

They charged recklessly, and many citizens were knocked down, causing massive casualties.

Lin Beifan waved his hand, “Warriors, take down the White Elephant Army for me! Don’t harm them, I want to stay alive!”

“Yes, Supreme Commander!” The eager warriors didn’t hesitate.

Their method was like this: a few of them would team up, use their agile skills to bind the legs of the White Elephants with large ropes, and then trip them. This method was very practical, and hundreds of White Elephants were quickly captured.

“The liberation of White Elephant Country begins now!” Lin Beifan waved his hand again. “Break into the city, capture the White Elephant King and the officials and generals of the White Elephant Court, and eliminate the resistance of the White Elephant Court!”

“Yes, Supreme Commander!”

Finally, Great Wu’s 100,000 soldiers and horses started moving. The citizens of White Elephant Country also joined the excitement and rushed in.

Although the White Elephant Court had 300,000 troops, their morale was shattered, and they couldn’t organize effective resistance. They were quickly overwhelmed by this million-strong army, which stormed into the city.

The White Elephant King and his group tried to escape, but they had already been targeted by Great Wu’s commanders.

“Run, where can you possibly run to?”

“Let me tell you, you’ve already been surrounded by us. There’s no way out!”

“Obey us and come with us, bow down and admit your guilt to the Supreme Commander!”

“Otherwise, don’t blame us for being ruthless! Hehe…”

The White Elephant King turned pale with fear. “There are 20 innate experts, we’re done for!”

In the end, this group of people couldn’t escape and were brought before Lin Beifan for questioning. Lin Beifan once again presented a petition in front of millions of White Elephant citizens, listing the crimes of the White Elephant King and others.

Finally, he declared with great indignation, “The White Elephant King and his accomplices have committed countless heinous crimes, sins that are beyond forgiveness! So, let’s finish them all now and let them atone for their sins with their lives!”

As the bloody heads fell one by one, the White Elephant citizens let out a satisfying sigh of relief.

“Well done! It’s satisfying to see them killed! People like that deserve to die!”

“Only by killing them can we usher in a new hope!”

“I think this punishment is still too light. They should be hacked to pieces, subjected to slow torture and execution!”

“Yes, I also think the punishment is too lenient. They should suffer more, or it won’t be satisfying!”

“Prime Minister, you’re too merciful!”

Lin Beifan shouted loudly, “Fellow citizens, now that the evildoers have been brought to justice, White Elephant Country will undergo a tremendous transformation! However, there is a question before us now. Without a government or officials, White Elephant Country will continue to be chaotic even if we’ve won. Have you thought about what to do?”

At this moment, someone shouted loudly, “Prime Minister, why make it so complicated? Since there’s no government here, why don’t you from Great Wu just send people to take over? Wouldn’t that work?”

“Yes, we want to be part of Great Wu. We want to become the people of Great Wu! Please grant our request, Prime Minister!”

The crowd’s voices were loud and eager.

During this period, they had all realized that Great Wu treated its citizens exceptionally well—no taxes, high-yield crops, and the development of irrigation facilities. Even people from other countries received special treatment, better than they had in White Elephant Country.

So, they had long wanted to join Great Wu and become part of it!

Moreover, after this disaster, all the other countries were in chaos, with rampant lawlessness and chaos. Only Great Wu enjoyed peace and prosperity. They had no other choice but to join Great Wu to live better lives.

Seeing the enthusiasm of the crowd and the fact that they wouldn’t let him refuse, Lin Beifan had no choice but to go along with their wishes.

“Good! Since you all want to join Great Wu, then I solemnly declare…” Lin Beifan’s expression became serious. “From now on, White Elephant Country will be a province of Great Wu, called White Elephant Province! And the citizens of White Elephant Country will be the citizens of Great Wu, enjoying the same rights as our Great Wu citizens!”

Cheers erupted like a tidal wave.

“Haha! I’ve finally joined Great Wu; I am a citizen of Great Wu!”

“I have the same rights as the citizens of Great Wu!”

“I’ve finally seen the light of day. Today is truly a great day!”

“Thank you, Prime Minister!”

Next, Lin Beifan led the Great Wu army to stay in White Elephant Country and carry out some post-war tasks. Firstly, they returned all the resources, including goods gathered by the White Elephant King from all over the country, as well as natural treasures, to the people. This single action alone greatly won the hearts of the people.

Secondly, they uprooted any remaining noble and royal forces in White Elephant Country, leaving no trace behind. This was done to ensure Great Wu’s complete control of White Elephant Country and eliminate any obstacles.

Thirdly, they audited White Elephant Country’s wealth and resources, reorganized its farmland, and initiated production efforts to help White Elephant Country recover as quickly as possible.

With all these measures in place, the people of White Elephant Country became even more supportive of Great Wu.

“Letting Great Wu manage us is absolutely right!”

“We can look forward to better days ahead!”

“Just thinking about it makes me smile!”

Meanwhile, news of Great Wu’s conquest of White Elephant Country quickly spread worldwide, causing shock everywhere.

“In just a few days, Great Wu has actually conquered White Elephant Country?”

“Expanding their territory – when did it become so easy?”

“I heard that this time, it was Great Wu’s Supreme Commander Lin Beifan leading the attack. Without much effort and in less than a day, they took over White Elephant Country!”

“Damn it! Our country is torn apart by internal strife, while Great Wu is expanding its territory!”

“Great Wu is getting stronger and stronger. What should we do?”

Nations around the world felt a significant threat from Great Wu. They strongly protested, calling it an act of aggression and an unjust war, demanding that Great Wu return White Elephant Country.

Among these protests, the most vehement came from the Great Yan Dynasty and the Dayue Dynasty. This was because White Elephant Country was situated at the border of these three nations, and Great Wu’s expanding influence posed the greatest threat to them.

They protested vigorously, but Great Wu paid them no heed, treating their protests as if they were inconsequential.

They had hoped to use military threats against Great Wu but found their own nations embroiled in chaos, making them incapable of dealing with internal strife, let alone challenging Great Wu. In the end, they could only watch helplessly as Great Wu incorporated White Elephant Country into its dominion.
