Chapter 222: Do one thing for me (Part One)
“You can all get up. It’s my own negligence that caused the situation today, and it is not your fault!” Paris was already out of Fei’s arms. With the white dress, she looked untouchable. She lightly waved her hand calmly and pardoned the guards from their obligations as if nothing happened.
“Thank you, Ms. Paris!”
The imperial guards got up with cold sweat on their bodies as they looked at Fei with admiration, respect, and suspicion.
Although they saw that they came too late, everyone knew from the look of the huge silver phantom sword, the cross of fire, and the collapsed buildings that the assassins were very powerful. They wouldn’t be much help even if they participated in the battle. They knew that the assassins were enough to wipe the entire team of imperial guards. If this young man in front of them didn’t act, their Ms. Paris would be a cold corpse now.
However, the king of Chambord who liked showing off wasn’t in the mood of enjoying the reactions from the guards.
He sighed as the red flames flashed by and took away his set items from the Diablo World. He then dusted the chipped wood and rocks off of his shoulder as he stared at the woman in front of him for a while. “Beauty, why do I have a weird feeling about this? Seems like you already know the assassins were coming here. I feel like I’ve been used by you again.”
The beauty fixed her blonde hair as she giggled with the other hand over her mouth. She looked very pure and naïve. She only giggled and didn’t admit or deny Fei’s allegations.
“So the more beautiful a woman is, the better she is at lying.” Fei already knew the answer from the beauty’s action.
“Haha, don’t mind me. I actually don’t want to use you to take out my political opponents. These assassins are not from any forces in Zenit.” Paris knew what Fei was thinking about, so she explained.
“Not from Zenit?”
“Yeah. They appeared in St. Petersburg about two months ago, and they are so mysterious that no one was able to trace them. It seemed like they are here to assassinate key officials in the empire, and they have succeeded so far. More than a dozen officials and nobles in the empire have been assassinated. On top of that, both I and the elder princess Tanasha have faced attempts several times in the last few days. Although we were safe, we couldn’t really find the root causes. These people are vicious and sly. They knew who the powerful warriors in the empire are, and they wouldn’t try to assassinate someone when they didn’t feel comfortable. I tried to trick them and trap them several times, but it all failed!”
When Paris got serious, her superficial and sexual presence disappeared completely. A holy and sincere expression appeared on her face as she smiled and explained to Fei. She looked very attractive at this moment.
“Oh, so you became more calculative and risked your own life to attract them? You only brought a few guards and no powerful warriors, but you came to such a noisy and popular place. You made them think that this was a rare opportunity so they would send their best assassins to kill you, but you invited me to come and used me to capture them all?”
Fei wasn’t dumb. After hearing what Paris said, he knew what was going on.
“You are so smart.” Paris giggled as she flattered Fei, “For some reason, although they are not from the empire, they knew what goes around the empire very well. They knew about the whereabouts of all master warriors here, so when I do bring them, the assassins wouldn’t come. Your Majesty has the ability to kill them, and you just came to St. Petersburg and not many people know about you. The assassins won’t think much of you, and that was why we were able to attract the assassins and kill them off!”
Fei rubbed his temples and thought, “Such a dangerous woman……”
“Haha, actually, since the king of Chambord killed the mysterious assassins who bothered the empire for long, Emperor Yasin would definitely reward you when he hears about it. This is a big credit, and you Alexander totally gained a ton tonight! Why the long face?”
