Chapter 214: Young Genius, Born Talent
In terms of actual power, even though Dillies had the reputation as the number one warrior among the younger generation at the Hot Spring Gate, he was still quite away from Sutton.
Dillies was about the rank of a low-tier five-star warrior, and he was only able to deal the damage of a mid-tier five-star warrior when he used his combat technique [Beast King’s Sigh]. That was still quite far away from top-tier five-star warrior. When Fei faced Sutton, he was injured when he used his set items [Bul-Kathos’ Children]; but when he fought with Dillies, he didn’t even need his set items to beat him. He was able to beat Dillies with 30 fist marks stacks out of his limit of 46. Dillies wasn’t able to handle this attack, and that showed the difference.
However, the reason why Fei said “You two are about the same” wasn’t addressing their individual power, but rather referring to their arrogant attitude and how they treated regular people. These two warriors had the same kind of annoying attitude since they were both from noble families, and Fei hated that.
However, Dillies didn’t get Fei’s meaning.
It didn’t matter if it was Fei’s transparent fist mark from the Sky Frost Fist, or the [Inferno] spell that Fei casted while in the Sorceress Mode, or the [Pray] that Fei used while in the Paladin Mode, Dillies was shocked and surprised by it. At this moment, this number one warrior of the young generation at the Hot Spring Gate was confused. He couldn’t really tell how powerful Fei was. After he was beat, Fei’s status and power skyrocketed in his mind. Therefore, after Fei said that he and Sutton were about the same, he didn’t feel depressed because he lost, but he rather felt a little happy from it.
It seemed like it was an honor to be able to fight with the king of Chambord.
It was truly interesting how the human brain worked.
This fog today was unprecedentedly thick. All that one could see was white, and it got thicker and thicker as time passed rather than disappearing.
Soldiers of Chambord had killed the soldiers who came with Kulun and Andrew. They decapitated them and placed these heads on their own swords, just like what these soldiers did to people like York and Tina. These swords were stabbed into the ground from their hilt, and they formed a bloody circle around the jail-cart and the corpses that was being burnt by the fire from [Inferno] as if this was some kind of remembrance ceremony.
After this was all done, the expeditionary force of Chambord took off in the direction of St. Petersburg and disappeared into the fog.
Dillies stood still and watched the expeditionary force of Chambord take off. After they were gone, he was finally able to use his own fire warrior energy to press down the damage that the Sky Frost Fist did to him and was able to walk again.
A disgusted expression appeared on his face as he looked at his little brother Kulun who was begging for help on the ground. He turned around and slowly walked away without even looking back at Kulun.
“Yeah, old guy, what do you think?”
On the peak level of the biggest magic tower in the center of Hot Spring Gate, two figures stood still at the window. A white haired and white bearded elder who looked very intelligent opened his mouth and asked. His white robe was clean as the cloud, and he had a white staff that was taller than his body in his hand. A powerful yet vague sensation came off of him as if he was levitated above the world.
“I can’t see through it.” A tough and white haired man answered. He had the presence of a lion.
This man was wearing a simple metal armor, but this armor had a ton of strike marks on it. Although this set of armor looked old and damaged, he still had an indescribable presence as if he had tens of thousands of troops behind him. A cruel yet bloody sensation that one could only feel on a battlefield was coming off of him. It was natural, and this man didn’t try to make it appear that way on purpose.
“Hahaha, I didn’t expect there would be a young man who the Legion Commander of the [Rapid Wind Legion] couldn’t see through.” The first white haired and bearded elder laughed as he stroked his beard. “This king of Chambord is too daring. He even killed soldiers of the [Rapid Wind Legion]. You Tolemy are known for your short-tempers and protectiveness. I thought you were going to kill him, and I didn’t expect you to let him go.”
“I can’t see through him, so I’m not sure if I can kill him. That’s why I didn’t move.” The elder in the armor said.
“What? You are the Legion Commander, and you aren’t confident in your ability to crush this young man?” The smile on the elder in the robe didn’t change: “Looks like I was right. When the king of Chambord fought with Dillies, he was holding back. Looks like there is a genius among the 250 affiliated kingdoms of Zenit.
“Chaos is about to arrive, and genius and talented young men would appear one after another. King Alexander is one of them……” The expression on the elder in armor’s face didn’t change at all; it was calm and majestic. “You are right, six star mage Edward Carter. Your judgment is right. The king of Chambord is a genius, and I’m not sure if I can beat him!”
“Although you are not sure if you can beat him, you can kill him for sure. Why didn’t you?”
“I know what you mean. If I used the[Rapid Wind Legion], I can kill him easily. But to kill such a genius warrior, a lot of soldiers of mine would die as well. I can’t let one of the ten battle legions of Zenit suffer such lost because of this little drama……” The elder in armor shook his head and continued: “Also, the Empire in under a lot of pressure and there are a lot of hidden currents. The appearance of such a genius might not be a bad thing for the empire!”
“Oh?” The elder in the robe stroke his beard and asked: “Old pal, looks like you are quiet appreciative of him?”
“Young genius, born talent. Why shouldn’t I be appreciative of him?”
“Simple. This genius that you are talking about beat your elder son and broke his belief of himself. He also beat your second son like a dead dog. Don’t you care for your kids at all?”
“Humph! Dillies’ life is too smooth, and some setback and obstacles would be good for him. In terms of Kulun…… Humph, I, Tolemy would never care for such a waste.”
“Woohoo. Same attitude as before…… Although Kulun isn’t a great one, he is your son after all. He is the last thing that your wife Vera left for you.”
The elder in armor’s expression got cold and said, “If it wasn’t because of Vera, Kulun would have been killed by me hundreds of times for what he has done in the Hot Spring Gate!”
The atmosphere got a little quieter as this topic was brought up, and no one talked anymore.
The two of them used special techniques to see exactly what had happened outside of the Hot Spring Gate standing at the peak of this magic tower. Because of their silence, no troops or powerful warriors appeared even though the battle between Dillies and Fei was loud. Otherwise, the event would had another turn out.
As if these two elders knew what went through each other’s mind, both of them let this event pass.
However, what they didn’t know was that what Fei was relying on was beyond their wildest dreams.
