Chapter 216: Thunder like Voice
“Hey girls, during competition, I will cut your heads off…….” A tough man who was taller than two meters licked his blade as he stood in his own camp and saw the expeditionary forces from Chambord walking by.
“Woof-!” A huge black big unicorn forehead jumped onto the other side of the fence viciously and roared. It opened its mouth wide and blew out a bloody scent as the people of Chambord went by.
There was also a warrior in a full set of iron metal only with his eyes exposed. His eyes showed his murderous spirit as he stood up quickly in the camp of his kingdom. With his eyes fixed on everyone who walked by, he held the sword that was still dripping blood tightly in his hands as if he was going to attack any second.
Fei who was riding on [Black Tornado] heard a lot of loud chatter–
“Two headed dog flag? Which kingdom has that flag?”
“No sure, but from the look of it, they are just a tiny small kingdom……”
“Hehe, small kingdom…… they are like bystanders in this competition……”
“But what are they riding on?…… Huh? Those are level 4 Roaring Flame Beasts? Could it be the Chishui Kingdom? But the king of Chishui isn’t that young. Look at the young man leading the troop, he probably is the king……”
“What is he riding on? …… Huh? I have never seem such a beast before…… Horse? It doesn’t look like a horse, but more like a dog……”
“Bullshit, how can a dog be that big?”
Fei and his troops walked pass by the majority of the camp sites as everyone else looked at them. Among 250 affiliated kingdoms, there were kingdoms that were prosperous, and there were kingdoms where even the kings were wrapped in animal skins like old hunters. The expeditionary force of Chambord was wearing shiny armor, and that attracted a lot of jealous and envious stares. Especially the level 4 Roaring Flame Beasts that the Saint Seiyas were riding on. Those made a lot of high level warriors drool in envy.
People who were daring enough even followed behind the troops and wanted to know how powerful this troop that was made of less than a hundred soldiers was.
“King Alexander, this space beside the river belongs to Chambord.” The captain who was leading the way was very friendly. He pointed at the camp site by the river and said.
This was an empty space of about 20 acres. It was very flat, and it was beside a river that travelled through a majority of the camp sites. Since there was a thin layer of grass and it was beside the water sources, this site was very suitable for camping. This empty space was blocked off by iron chains and stone pillars from sites belonged to other kingdoms, and a ten meter tall stone pillar with the big word “Chambord” was engraved on it right in the middle of everything.
“Your majesty, my name is Torsy. If you have anything questions, you can send someone to get me from the first battalion of the [Blizzard Legion]. Since you guys traveled for a while, you all must be tired. I won’t bother you guys long; I believe that we will see each other soon!”
This captain named Torsy was very friendly. From what he said, he was a member of the number on battle legion among the top ten legions, [Blizzard Legion]. This surprised Fei a little. After leading Fei and soldiers of Chambord to their camp site, Torsy also left a book of rules and guidelines that everyone had to follow during this competition, and then he left. Torsy was very smart in the way he talked; he didn’t appear to be too close with Fei, but he showed his friendliness.
After saying bye to this captain Torsy, the expeditionary force started to set up. Unlike the temporary camps that they set up along the way to here, the camps this time needed to be used for about a month, and everything needed to be firm and tight. Oleg himself took the lead to instruct and work with the soldiers to build them. Many comfortable and fancy tents and magic building materials that were purchased at the Hot Spring Gate were now very useful.
The people who followed the Chambord’s Expeditionary Force saw the word on the stone pillar at the center of the camp and knew where this troop came from. Most of these people’s expression turned serious as they hurried back to their camps to report this news to their kings.
“S–t…… so these guys are the rumored vicious killers of Chambord. I have to tell his majesty about this news. We shouldn’t provoke them! The king of Chambord who defeated the Golden Sun Knight isn’t someone who we, a level 4 affiliated kingdom, can handle!”
“Chambord? They are from Chambord? We can’t get on their wrong side!”
“Looks like that black haired young man who rode that strange beast must be the King of Chambord who is really famous now at St. Petersburg. He is this young? Unbelievable! He really defeated the Golden Sun Knight from Imperial Knight Palace? These types of people, we can only be friends with and not enemies!”
“The king of Chambord who came to in a light and unexpected manner … the outcome from the battle of Dual-Tower Mountain is widespread…… Hehe, I will let you enjoy the fame for now. However, the Imperial Knight Palace won’t let you be this arrogant for long……”
After getting the report from their subordinates, some kings who were envious of the level 4 Roaring Flame Beasts got rid of their greed. These kings had their reliable sources of information, and they all knew about the result of the battle at Dual-tower Mountains. They knew that someone who defeated the Golden Sun Knight wasn’t someone who they could take on, and they became very simple and didn’t plan any more tricks or conspiracies.
Of course, not all kings had good information flows. Even though the news of the battle of Dual-tower Mountains wasn’t new, for the kings whose kingdoms were remote and couldn’t enter St. Petersburg to access anything, the king of Chambord wasn’t someone who defeated one of the ten Executive Knights of the Imperial Knight Palace, but a king of a weak level 6 affiliated kingdom. Based on Fei’s age, they didn’t think that Fei was much trouble.
Some greediness started to overflow……
“This is not fair, why can Chambord, a level 6 affiliated kingdom, enjoy a high-quality camp site that only other level 1 or level 2 affiliated kingdoms can enjoy?”
“These people from Chambord are being treated too favorably!”
Some of the kings questioned.
Before these kings could move, someone already did.
Suddenly, a loud voice sounded as if it was a thunder. Everyone in these camp sites within 10 kilometers heard it clearly –
“King of Chambord, I, Kelud challenge you to a battle! Tomorrow noon, at the first Sword Testing Ground, I will be waiting for you!”
This voice resonated in the sky.
Every single king heard this voice, and they were all shocked.
“Kelud? He is ranked number seven among all ten Executive Knights. He is someone of power and influence, and he is going to challenge the King of Chambord already?”
“Haha, looks like the fact that the King of Chambord defeated Golden Sun Knight brought some shame to the Imperial Knight Palace. All the rumors at St’ Petersburg have harmed the reputation of the Palace, and that’s probably why an Executive Knight challenged the King of Chambord in less than ten minutes after their arrival!”
“This is a great opportunity to see if King of Chambord is as invincible as he is in the rumors!”
Fei heard this voice as well.
“Kelud? Who is he?”
The king was able to tell from the tone of the voice that this challenger wasn’t weak. At least, this challenger was stronger than Sutton. “Is it because of my face? Does my face automatically provoke people to challenge me? Why are there people challenging me all the time? Or am I too kind so everyone feels like they can show off in front of me?”
“Your majesty, Kelud is ranked number seven among all ten Executive Knights, and he is a lot stronger than the Golden Sun Knight Sutton. He is technically a warrior of the generation before you.” Old Zolasc reported. He and Modric spent a lot of time on collecting information and although the information gathering system of Chambord was really bad and almost non-existent, the information on the Executive Knights, who were really famous and well-known in the empire, was at least gathered to a certain degree.
“Another Executive Knight?”
Fei rubbed his chin. He instantly knew why he was challenged. The saying goes, “After you beat the youth, the elders will come.”
“So he is here for redemption? But if this number seven knight loses, would the number three, number two, or number one Executive Knight come and challenge me as well? Isn’t that the same as poking a Hornet’s nest?” Fei thought.
“This time, I have to so cruel and dominating that no one dares to bother me again!”
