Chapter 241 Suddenly Arrival
Like a chicken who won in a bloody chicken fight, Fei laughed as he left after defeating all of his opponents.
His laugh didn’t sound humble at all; it didn’t fit his royal image. However, everyone could hear the proudness in the laugh, and they sounded like a series of slaps in the face of the superpowers and noble families at St. Petersburg. To the nobles who were treated like gods in the city, the disdain and mockery in the laugh made them feel worse than dying. Despite the ugly looks on their faces, they still couldn’t do anything to Fei.
At least now, they can’t do anything.
After jumping off of the stage like a huge bird, Fei greeted the crowd as he walked away in cheers. With considerations in mind, he didn’t let other Chambordians to follow him to the duel. After he got out of the crowd, he dashed away and disappeared.
Inside the camp of Chambord.
Since morning, Angela was in a state of uneasiness.
Although she had confidence in her man, the Sword-Testing Stage was a cruel place after all; corpses were being dragged off of the stage after shouts and metal colliding noises every day. Today, Fei was challenging one of the Ten Executives Knights that no one in Zenit Empire dared to offend. After she read the intelligence report made by Old Zola and Modric on Kelud, she got even more worried.
Despite the worrying, she knew that her Alexander couldn’t escape from it.
She was smiling the whole time and didn’t let any of her anxiousness to be shown. She didn’t want Fei to see her worries and be affected by it during the duel. Since the beginning, she was trying to look confident in hoping that her optimism could bring Fei luck.
An hour ago, she saw Fei dashing from the camp and going to the duel.
At that moment, her heart was racing so fast that it almost reached her throat.
From that moment on, she hadn’t relaxed at all; it was a torture for her every second. She was scared, anxious, and unease,
The only thing that she could do and did was to kneel down before a statue of the God of War and pray.
“All mighty God of War, I beg you for a miracle and please let Alexander return safely…….”
The other person who was with Angela and kneeled at the same time was Emma.
Outside of the camp, no one from Chambord went to see the duel as they all followed Fei’s command. However, every soldier from Chambord was standing outside in silent as they looked at the direction of the stage earnestly.
Among them, people like Peter-Cech, Torres, and Warden Oleg were much stronger than everyone else, and they were able to sense the power surge happening from far away. Within all the surging, an unfamiliar bloody and murderous energy surged the most. Although they were quite far away, they still unleashed their energy as they tried to protect themselves subconsciously.
This sensation was too powerful.
But unlike Angela and Emma, People like Cech, Torres, and Oleg weren’t was worried for Fei despite being scared by this energy.
Only the people who had fought alongside Fei before knew how powerful their king was. Ever since the black armored enemies attacked Chambord, most of these people had fought alongside Fei. Every time a disaster came in Chambord’s way, their king was somehow able to handle all of that with his individual power. Especially after these people from Chambord got more powerful, they sensed that their distance from their king got bigger. Every time they thought that they were close to catching up with their king, they would realize that they were wrong. Especially since their king defeated the Tenth Executive Knight on the Dual-Tower Mountains, they finally figured out that they couldn’t even “see” their king’s figure on the road of cultivation.
To be frank, they had a crazy trust in their king that was similar to how people of religion had 100% faith in their god.
This belief was based on the invincible image that their king painted.
This image was already deeply engraved into their bones and souls.
As everyone from Chambord looked at the direction of the stage despite not being able to see it, they suddenly heard shouts: “King of Chambord! King of Chambord! King of Chambord! King of Chambord!”
Tsunami-like sound waves came from the direction of the stage, and everyone from Chambord felt like they were standing in a sound storm. The loud cheers made them have a hard time standing up straight. They all looked at each other, and they all saw an expressing smile on each other’s faces.
“This…… his majesty won?” Oleg who mastered the art of flattering reacted first. The fatty shouted as he jumped up from the ground and try to have a better look at the stage.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Everyone moved. Within the camp of Chambord, everyone started to try to climb on something tall. Although their king ordered them to not leave the camp, they could still get to a high point and look far.
After all, they couldn’t hold back the emotions as they heard all the cheers.
In their minds, they could already picture their king standing on the stage with the long black hair fluttering. They would also picture their king being admired by tens of thousands of people and the Seventh Executive Knight lying on the ground bleeding!
Due to the number of people who got on top of the tent to try to see the stage, a few tents couldn’t handle this weight and collapsed……
“His majesty…… his majesty won?” Angela ran out of the central tent as she asked with her shaky voice: “Peter, Torres, tell me…… did Alexander win?”
After hearing this, Cech and Torres jumped off of their tents and single-kneeled in front of Angla. They responded respectfully: “Your Highness, although we are not sure of the details, we can tell for sure that his majesty won! The other surge of energy couldn’t be sensed anymore, and his majesty’s power is the only power that we can sense.”
“Great, great!” A bright smile shined on the girl’s face as she said: “Quick, get ready to welcome his majesty back! We have to do a huge celebration this time.
“As you wish, your highness!”
After hearing the future queen’s order, all the soldiers got hyped more as they started the preparation.
Angela, on the other hand, thought about the situation a bit more and then went back into the central tent to thank the God of War for protecting her Alexander.
“I have to smile and greet Alexander as he comes back!”
Fei put on a brown cloak as he slowly walked on the streets formed by the campsites.
He ignored the warriors and the slaves who were chatting among themselves about the duel that just took place; he was thinking back to and recreating the battle he just went through in his mind.
Fei discovered that he seemed to have a terrifying learning ability – he would learn and grasp on something that he has never thought about before after every fight. After fighting with four Executive Knights, he felt like the mists and fog in front his path of cultivation disappeared a lot!
“Could it be the effect of [Learn]? One of the three miraculous skills I got from Diablo World? Although I was smart before, I wasn’t this crisp.”
Fei who loved and praised himself all the time was even weird out by his own talent.
He thought as he organized all these new ideas and inspirations he got from the fights, and suddenly –
“Huh?” Fei’s expression changed.
He suddenly had a terrifying sensation as if he was targeted by a monster.
“Someone is following me? A super powerful warrior?”
Fei didn’t question the sensing ability of his level 40 Barbarian character. At that moment, he was sure that he was being followed. Also, this hidden beast was far beyond his level; Fei felt like he was a sand particle facing an ocean.
On top of all this, this person had an unhidden murderous spirit.
