Samurai of the Takeda Family - Chapter 618
The ground was covered with snow, and the corpses left on the ground were buried in the snow so casually.
At this moment, the dark clouds in the sky were drooping, and in a blink of an eye, there was another thin and dense snow falling down.
The cold wind blows, everyone feels bitter.
Mochizuki Shineong listened to Li Zheng’s words and had blocked his reinforcements, with an incredible expression on his face.
In fact, in order to deceive Nobuhiro Takeda, he did not mobilize a single soldier in order to deceive the military of the Yamato country. Even after the Musashi Army attacked the Inno-ji Temple last night, they left part of the control of Kyoto. In fact, all that can be mobilized is here. .
Mochizuki Nobuyuki just tried to defraud Li Zheng with words, and after making him feel terrified, to see if he can take advantage of this capture and take the opponent, it is considered to have a slight opportunity.
Seeing Li Zheng’s self-confident rebuttal, on the contrary, made his heart startled.
Mochizuki Shinnaga looked up and saw that on the hillside, Koyamada Nobuhiro’s main formation was eliminated at some point.
The flag seal also disappeared, replaced by a large sun-moon double-patterned flag flying in the wind and snow.
On the other side of the hillside, the two armies marched in the snow, and the red armor was especially eye-catching against the white snow scene.
The armed forces of the two armies are like iron arms.
Above its flag is the elite group of Takeda Army, Kamokabei and Snaketailbei.
“How can this be?”
“Kamiokabi, Shotailbi, aren’t they in Kaga? How come they are here?”
Mochizuki Nobuyuki looked at Li Zheng and said: “It is true that the Li family is not intent on the side, and the mantis catches the cicada and the oriole is behind. Your Li family silently looks at it and sees me conspiring to rebel against the imperial palace, the Gongfang Palace. Plan everything secretly. Achieve great achievements without being affected by the name, and treat me as rebellious.”
Li Zheng shook his head. He said: “His Royal Highness Mochizuki, you are jealous of a gentleman in the heart of a villain.”
“Nonsense. Otherwise, can you explain why I burned the Instinct Temple only overnight, and why did Shengangbei and Snaketailbei appear here?” Mochizuki Shinaga’s eyes widened and he looked at Li Zheng fiercely.
Li Zhengyan said: “Yes, my father is secretly keeping Shengang and Snake Tail Bei stationed here, but the purpose is not to rebel, but to worry about Gong Chao Yue. One day turning his face will be detrimental to my Li family. Prepare the team. Tunza here. Be in favor of me.”
Mochizuki Shinaga grinned for the first time: “Do you think I can believe it? I think your Excellency is the real person, the house-shaped man. General Guards, you are the scheming, I am far inferior, ridiculous, Still having a big dream, I don’t want to wake up.”
Hearing this, Li Zheng did not explain, and said: “His Royal Highness Mochizuki can believe it. If you don’t believe it, it doesn’t hurt. At that time, please go to Father Father to explain!”
Mochizuki Nobuyuki saw that there were nearly a hundred warriors on horseback below the mountain, and the stars were usually surrounded by a tall, middle-aged man in a cloak.
This person is a burly person with very different eyes. Who else can he be if he is not Li Xiao?
When Li Xiao’s own Li character flag appeared, Nobuyoshi Takeda and Nobuhiro Oyamada both looked at each other.
As for the Musashi Army and the Oyamada Army’s foot light, they saw the well-trained elite troops of the other side, surrounded by left and right, and they had no intention to fight anymore.
“Raise a gun!”
The iron cannon of the Takeda Army raised the platoon lightly.
A long series of laughter echoed across the plain.
When everyone looked at it, they saw Mochizuki Shinyong looking up to the sky with a long smile, and saw him smiling with two lines of tears coming down from his face.
Takeda Nobuyoshi on the side could not help but look sad.
I saw Mochizuki Nobuyuki, wiped his face with his leather-clad hands, wiped away the tears, and said to Li Zhengyan: “Even the house-shaped man is here. What else can I say? I was so defeated. This rebellion was all my own idea. My brother was coerced by me, but I hope that the house will see the past love and spare his life, is it okay?”
Seeing Mochizuki Nobuyuki said this, he was silent at the moment. This is a crime of treason. It is impossible for Takeda Nobuyo to survive.
Seeing Li Zheng’s face, Mochizuki Shinaga couldn’t help but laughed at himself, saying: “Let’s go with you, this big dream of Kyoto is over. Takeda Ryogoku will be replaced by the sun and the moon. Not anymore.”
After saying that, Mochizuki Nobuyuki took off his saddle and got off his horse, throwing his armor and swords aside, sitting cross-legged in the snow beside the horse, while his head was deeply lowered.
Nobuhiro Koyamada saw Mochizuki Nobuyoshi doing this, and screamed angrily, immediately drew out the sword, and said: “Retreat with me!”
The horse hoof rolled and kicked the slush.
At the moment, Nobuhiro Koyamada led a fifty or sixty riding team of Koyamada family, riding on the encirclement before closing, and immediately retreated.
“Lord, do you want to pursue?” Sunyuebei General Tsuchiya Masahiro asked for an explanation.
Li Xiao, who was printed with the Li flag, saw a smile, waved his hand, and said: “Be sure to live longer, just capture Takeda Nobuyo and Mochizuki Nobuyuki, and now… Now this Koyamada Nobuhiro can still Where are you going.”
The generals couldn’t help but smile.
Li Xiao waved his horse whip forward and said: “This rebellion is enough, let them lay down their weapons and surrender.
Li Xiao’s soldiers said in unison.
The besieged army saw Mochizuki Nobuyuki dismounting his horse and surrendering, and Koyamada Nobuhiro rode away again, no longer willing to fight.
Before Nobuyoshi Takeda spoke, all the players threw their spears to the ground one after another, all in a daze.
Seeing this, Nobuyoshi Takeda smiled tragically, and instead rode out, and came straight to Li Xiao’s direction.
Tsuchiya Masahiro waved his hand, and the riding samurai of Riyuebei separated eight horses to surround Takeda Shintoyo.
Li Xiao shook his hand and said, “Let him come over.”
Nobuyoshi Takeda came to Li Xiaoma and stopped three places in front of him, dropped his weapon, knelt down in front of Li Xiao, and said: “Master, I am here to ask you to sin.”
Listening to Takeda Shinfeng’s master, Li Xiao couldn’t help but feel puzzled by Shimakajima. I am under Takeda Shinshige’s command. At that time, the days when I was the master of Hanxue, Nobuyoshi Takeda and Nobuyuki Mochizuki, could not help but come to mind.
At that time. Takeda Shinfeng was younger than Li Zheng, and he chased Li Xiao all day long. Talking about the story of the Three Kingdoms.
And Mochizuki Nobuyuki was still a taciturn child at the time, and only when Li Xiao told the story of the Three Kingdoms, a smile appeared on his face.
Times have changed, and almost twenty years have passed in a blink of an eye.
And Nobuyoshi Takeda, Nobuyuki Mochizuki has become a prisoner at this moment, and Nobuhiro Takeda, who treated him favorably at the beginning, does not know his life or death.
Li Xiao jumped off the horse immediately, waved his left and right sides to retreat, and walked to Takeda Nobuo. He said: “The matter has come to the present day, and it is hard to be overwhelmed. What’s the point of your begging me at this moment?”
Nobuyoshi Takeda was taken aback. Suddenly grief came from the heart. The whole person lay in front of Li Xiao, crying bitterly.
“Master. I was wrong! I was wrong!”
Takeda Nobuyoshi said sadly.
Seeing this scene, Li Xiao also felt sad, and put his arms around Takeda Shinfeng’s shoulders, his eyes were also flushed.
“This chaos, at this point, it should finally be over.”
The heavy snow fell densely, and Li Xiao’s helmet and cloak were covered with white in a short time.
The world is silent, only the sound of heavy snow falling.
In the new year of the ninth year of Tianzheng, Kyoto is still going through a heavy snowfall.
The turmoil in Kyoto at the end of the year was quickly and effectively calmed down after one night, and the lives of the people did not suffer too much turmoil.
The people worked hard to forget that incident and had such a good mood for the New Year. At the same time, they hoped that the world would be peaceful and the whole family would be healthy in the coming year.
The bell sounded leisurely.
Tenryuji Temple, Kyoto.
An eye-catching Western-style four-wheeled carriage stopped at the entrance of Tianlong Temple.
Surrounded by the carriage are all horse-riding warriors with bright armors, and behind the queue are teams of foot soldiers carrying iron cannons.
The carriage door opened and Li Xiao, wearing a hunting suit, got out of the carriage.
The side nearby quickly used an umbrella to cover the heavy snowfall for him.
Standing in front of the gate of Dade Temple, looking at it, the sky and the earth are monotonous white on one side, and snowflakes are flying around the sky with the cold and bleakness of winter.
Li Xiao coughed slightly, took the umbrella from his side near the bottom of his hand, and strode into the door of Tianlong Temple.
In the temple, the warriors of the Li family are densely guarded.
Li Xiao ignored all this, stepped directly into the middle door, walked through the hall, and went directly to the depths of the courtyard.
Here, Li Xiao stopped his hand and signaled that he didn’t need to follow him when he approached, and walked into the courtyard alone by himself.
In front of a grassy cottage, several clusters of winter plum blossoms against the snow.
On his forehead, Nobuhiro Takeda, with a striking scar, was closing his eyes at the moment, holding the rosary in one hand and tapping the wooden fish quietly in the other.
Li Xiao did not speak, but sat in the corridor and waited silently.
After a long time, Nobuhiro Takeda did not finish his homework. He did not glance at Li Xiao’s side. He packed up the scriptures in front of him, and said flatly: “Duke Yaxing, come here to visit, what’s the matter?”
Li Xiaoyan said: “I have come to visit Master Chao Yue.”
Speaking of this, Li Xiao paused and said: “This mountain of the Linji Sect of Tianlong Temple is also the head of the five mountains in Kyoto. Chao Yuegong is far away from Huilin Temple to practice here. I wonder if I can get used to it?”
Nobuyuki Takeda said: “It’s all about practicing. As long as you can meditate in your heart, it doesn’t matter whether you are in Kai or Kyoto, or even if there is no tile above your head, it will be the same.”
Li Xiao nodded and said: “That’s it.”
Let’s say Li Xiao stood up, walked to Takeda Nobuhira’s door, and asked, “Can I go inside and discuss it in detail?”
Nobuhiro Takeda raised his head and looked at Li Xiaoyan and said, “You don’t need to be polite, please.”
At the moment Li Xiao and Takeda Nobuhiro sat cross-legged.
Nobuhiro Takeda asked, “How are the funeral preparations for Gokan-sama?”
Li Xiaoyan said: “Preparations are already underway at Dade Temple in Kyoto, and all the retainers of the family and the world’s great names will be invited to come and see you at that time. When the time comes, the mourning of the lord will be undertaken by the Umino Family’s High Commissioner.”
“Oh, is it the Ueno family? This kid hasn’t seen him yet. How is his father?”
Li Xiao replied: “Yes, His Highness Umino has blindness, but his body has been healthy.”
Nobuhiro Takeda nodded his head with satisfaction, and said, “That’s good, then, after Gokan-sama. It is your Highness that you will succeed. Have you inherited your family’s superintendent?”
Li Xiao said frankly: “Yes, I have this meaning. His Royal Highness has also decided to change the Miao character from Haiye to Takeda. This is his personal decision, but whether he will succeed him as the governor of the house. After consultation with the ministers in the family, Before it can be finalized.”
“No need to discuss, believe that this child is good and can serve as the superintendent of the family. In fact, he is the only descendant of his elder brother now.” Takeda Nobuya nodded and said.
Speaking of this, Takeda Nobuhira suddenly asked: “I remember that your grandson also has his own blood. With your ambitions, why not let him take the Miao character as Takeda? In order to inherit the family superintendent?”
“My ambition?” Li Xiao smiled slightly and said, “Gong Chao Yue joked. Zhenger refused to change his bloodline to his surname Miao. Of course I don’t want to.”
Takeda Shinhan laughed suddenly and said: “Good Li Xiao. Almost deceived me. Any refusing to change to the Miao character is just a way of slowing down.”
“You want to temporarily support the position and let the channel be the governor of the house. After the patriarch, Otomo, Shimadzu, etc. of Kyushu and the Four Kingdoms are quelled, you will get rid of the retainers who are not convinced by you, and finally take the world again.”
Speaking of this, Takeda Nobuhira said with a stern expression: “In terms of your ambition and tactics, of course, he will not do things that make a false name and do a real disaster at this time.”
“You have to be Cao Cao, Sima Yi, forbearance, wait for a while, after the world is truly settled, you might as well let your children and grandchildren do this usurpation of the throne again, and come to another instinct temple, right?”
“Is this how you can achieve your ambitions while being loyal to yourself?”
Li Xiao looked at Takeda Nobuhira, shook his head and said: “Cao Yue, I will wait for what will happen after him in the future, no one can predict. Even if I have this ambition, but my children and grandchildren will not do it, it is helpless. Or I do not have this ambition. But the children and grandchildren have no choice but to do it.”
“But in any case, Takeda is very kind to my Li family. My descendants of the Li family will keep the line of the clan family. You can rest assured that Mr. Chao Yue.”
Nobuhiro Takeda was stunned for a while, and said: “As far as the usurper is concerned, it is good to do this step. So I won’t bother anymore, huh, what’s the point of the question?”
“Even if my Takeda family wins the world, there will be an everlasting world in Jiraiya. In the end, it will only be another season of prosperity. Just like the winter plum outside the house, even if it survives this winter, it will wither after all.”
Li Xiao looked at a few clusters of plum blossoms outside the house, but was meditating.
In fact, the world has already been preliminarily determined. As the first minister of the Takeda family, the Li family has actually mastered the center. By vacating the clan, it is tantamount to mastering the power of the leader. Has been in his own hands.
In addition, Tokugawa, Sanada, Satake, Hosokawa, Kyōgoku, and the Li family are now in the same spirit, advancing and retreating together.
The Maori clan was divided into three, and no longer had the strength to compete with the clan. After Hojo was weakened, he settled in Kanto, and did not have the power to interfere with the shogunate.
Among the seven heads of the shogunate, it is actually Li Zheng’s turn to speak. As for whether the Takeda Sect’s family is abolished or not, whether Ashikaga Yoshiaki is in office as the shogun has no impact on the overall situation.
The power of the shogunate was already in the hands of the Li family.
In the next step, Li Zheng only needs ten years of effort to pacify the four countries and Kyushu in turn. Then, among the sixty-six countries in Japan, there is already the Li family’s martial arts world.
As an uncrowned king, the only thing left is the righteousness of the name, and the righteousness of this layer is not revealed, it depends on the feelings of Li Zheng and even Li Yun.
As the first generation member of the Li family, Li Xiao has truly fulfilled his burden at this moment.
Since ancient times, the people who dominate the world have become silent in their hearts after they become famous, and Li Xiao is no exception.
Takeda Xin said: “The flowers bloom for another season, doesn’t the house-shaped man feel silent? Even if your Li family wins the world in the future, what will happen? It will last for hundreds of years, but it will disappear in a flash.”
“Life is just a big dream. I don’t know the shape of a house. After waking up suddenly one day, will he realize that everything in the past was in a dream, but I’m still in my hometown’s house. People who dominate the Ming Dynasty, get up early? Plowing the fields and going to bed late, what does the house-shaped man think about this?”
Nobuhiro Takeda’s words suddenly struck Li Xiao’s heart.
As a traverser, he came to Japan in the Warring States Period. All this was incredible.
Chang Xiao fights together, Sekihara fights together, his wife and son.
His experience with his relatives seems to be nothing more than a long and long dream, only slightly realistic.
Is it true that for fifty years in the world, like a dream and illusion, as Nobunaga said?
Thinking of this, Li Xiao smiled and asked, “Then Mr. Chao Yue, if you really think that your life is also a dream, then why drink water and eat? Once you die, can you wake up from the dream? ?”
Takeda Shinshige was silent.
Li Xiao stood up, looked at the plum blossoms, and said: “The Lord Chao Yue is a man born in the world. Buddhism talks about nothingness, saying that there is no good or evil in the world, and what he does is nothing but dreams. In the end, it’s all in the mirror.”
“I don’t deny that this has its meaning, but whether this encourages people not to do anything and leave everything behind. This is not enough for the world.”
Nobuhiro Takeda sneered and said, “If everything is nothing~www.mtlnovel.com~ what’s the point of going to Jingwei?”
Li Xiaoyan said: “As you said, the flowers bloom for another season, so if the flowers know that they are going to wither, don’t they go to bloom?”
Nobuhiro Takeda looked at Li Xiao also pondering what he said.
“Everything has its own nature, and Buddhism also speaks of a clear mind. If you are born to eat, you go to eat, and you must drink water if you want to drink water. Since I have come to this Warring States Period and in this troubled world, what I see is nothing. To rise without drawing the sword is against the heart, even if it is really a dream, how is that.”
“As for the future of the Li family, whether the world can be achieved or not lies in the matter of children and grandchildren. I don’t care. If one day my Li family loses morals, it is a cycle of troubled times. If it is because of fear of losing, not To act, that is real inaction!”
Takeda Shinbane listened to Li Xiaozhi’s words, shook his head, and said, “Sophistry! Sophistry!”
Li Xiao laughed at this and stopped explaining.
PS: The finale tomorrow.
