Chapter 248: Night Visit – Moro Mountains
That night, there was a huge celebration party.
The fires lit up the nightly sky. Although the streets were empty due to the curfew established by both princes, it was really noisy and the atmosphere was really hyped inside the camp. Fire, wines, roasted meat, music, wrestling matches…… the Chambodians were expressing their joy and excitement freely.
Both the young king of Byzantine and his fiancée appeared in the party. When they visited Chambord this afternoon, they were both invited by Angela. Therefore, they made sure that they came before the curfew. However, due to the curfew, they had to stay at Chambord’s campsite for the night.
After the duel on the Sword-Testing Stage today, many people knew about the relationship between Byzantine and Chambord. They weren’t surprised to see Constantine and his fiancee.
However, there were some people who showed up surprisingly.
Most of them were from other affiliated kingdoms or representatives from big influential forces who wanted to get on the good side of Chambord. A lot of them actually already came during daytime; their gifts formed a mini-mountain in the central tent. But since Fei wasn’t present at that time due to the assassination, a lot of people paid high prices for limited Curfew Passes in order to get to know the king better.
“Cheers! For God of War!” People toasted.
“Cheers to King of Chambord! You can be named as the number one king among all affiliated kingdoms, and you are going to the number one warrior in the future…… Becoming the Martial Saint isn’t an impossible goal as well!” An elder noble who dressed fancily stood up and toasted. Instantly, people around him also raised their wine cup and toasted.
Then, they all looked at Fei for a response.
“For the God of War and our friendships!” Fei responded and chugged the wine in his cup.
“For the God of War and our friendships!” After seeing this, all the guests drank as well.
The ‘mad wolf’ image Fei created today on the stage by shaming Dean and Beag Family in front of tens of thousands of audience scared a lot of people; they were afraid that this King of Chambord was reckless and didn’t know how to handle situations. However, they were a lot more comfortable after this; after all, the king at least was able to show a kind gesture to all the guests.
Soon, the party came to a climax.
All the guests used this opportunity to present their gifts; they talked with Fei more and communicated the friendly will of their masters.
Fei chatted with these people friendly; the recklessness that he had during the battle was nowhere to be seen. He was in a black robe, and Angela was wearing a white dress beside him; together, they looked like a perfect match.
A lot of people in the Chambord military also got flattered.
People like Cech, Lampard, Pierce, Drogba, Oleg, and Torres were circled by people as they expressed their admiration and presented their gifts. Being effect by their king’s “greedy” mentality, they all took the gifts without hesitation. The four orphans from Hot Spring Gate were also being treated very well. Although they didn’t have much power and didn’t have any official positions, they were the disciples of the king. Actually, they became the most popular people that the guests wanted to talk to! Perhaps it was because the guests thought the kids were more gullible.
“Your majesty, I forgot to tell you something earlier, my bad!” Seeing Fei returning to his seat, old Zola walked up to Fei and whispered.
Fei waved his hand and an invisible force surrounded him and Zola; all the sounds were isolated.
“What do you want to tell me?”
Fei gestured Zola to sit down beside him. The information that Zola thought was important at this time must be serious.
“About fifteen minutes after the duel, thunder-like loud noises sounded in the Moro Mountains far away. Some people reported that they saw something unimaginable – some mountains collapsed and disappeared. It was rumored that huge energy surges appeared in Moro Mountains; the energy level was far beyond the level of star warriors. If there weren’t two top-tier Demon Beasts fighting, there must be two masters fighting…… The noises continued for about another fifteen minutes before calming down. For some reason, Zenit reacted fast. A lot of warriors were sent to lock down the area, and huge magic arrays were put in place to prevent the residual energy from spreading. A lot of people in the camp area are saying that an assassin that is a moon-class elite warrior was discovered and killed by the Martial Saint – Krasic……”
This news surprised Fei a lot.
It was midnight, and the moon hung in the middle of the sky.
This celebration party that was so loud that the entire camp area could hear finally ended.
People started to rest and sleep.
The camp area quieted down, and the moonlight shone on the surface of the continent. The only sounds that could be heard were flags fluttering in the wind.
At this time –
A shadow suddenly dashed out of the central tent and headed towards Moro Mountains.
This figure was so light and fast that zero noise was made. Under the cover of the darkness, none of the imperial soldiers who were patrolling the area discovered him. In less than five minutes, the figure dodged all the scouts and disappeared into the Moro Mountains.
After twenty minutes.
“It should be here. I can sense some energy surge…… Eh? Is that…… the site of the battle?” Standing on the peak of one of the hills, Fei looked far ahead.
What he could see was a huge pit that was more than five square kilometer big, and there were rocks of all sizes inside the pit; it was clear that those rocks were parts of mountains before. After having a closer look, Fei discovered that there was sand like dust all around the pit; they were rocks that got ground into dust by the powerful energies. Fei could tell that this was caused by the battle between master warriors and not Demon Beasts.
“Huss……” Fei gasped as he judged: “Destroy Mountains that covered the area of five square kilometers…… star level warriors couldn’t achieve it…… Both parties must be Moon-Class Elite Warriors, but whether they are on the level of New Moon, Crescent Moon, Half Moon or Full Moon, it is hard to tell!”
Fei still wasn’t sure who exactly the two moo-class elite warriors were, but somehow he suddenly thought about the person who was trying to assassinate him today. Fei’s intuition told him that one of them was that mysterious man.
“I need to get closer!”
Fei wanted to figure it out, so he dashed towards the pit under his Assassin Mode. Since he chugged a [Stamina Potion] before leaving the camp, his speed was a lot faster than normal.
“Eh? Wait, magic array!”
Fei’s expression changed.
He sensed the surging magic power in front of him. The magic power was so terrifying that it felt like a chaotic black hole. The magic power rotated, and everything in front of it was torn to pieces. Fei’s level 36 Assassin wasn’t strong enough to deal with this force; it was fortunate that he sensed it just before getting pulled in, so he quickly dashed backward to avoid the death.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
A fire element magic power erupted, and all the rocks that Fei just stepped on turned to lava as a ton of fire appeared out of nowhere.
Fei stopped twenty meters away as he patted his chest. If his reaction speed didn’t increase under assassin mode, he would be the one that was turned into lava.
Just that fire alone was more powerful than a Six-Star Warrior.
