Chapter 245: The arrival of the Era of Chaos (Part One)
Fei didn’t expect such a huge incident would happen after he went into Diablo World to escape the assassination.
No wonder he felt like the atmosphere was a little weird after he returned to the real world. Almost everyone at the camp area was a little self-defensive. At first, Fei thought that the crazy-image he created made other people feel threatened, but now he knew the real reason.
Who planned such a horrifying operation?
Fei rubbed his temples as he had a headache just trying to comprehend the situation. How can there be a force in Zenit who dared to assassinate so many influential figures? They would become the common enemy of many.
Or…… “Could it be some people outside of Zenit?” Fei thought.
He felt like he caught on something, but he still can’t figure it out.
“How did St. Petersburg react after this?” Fei raised his head and asked.
“The three battle legions protecting the camp area started to move, and it felt like they are trying to surround the area and capture all the assassins. The most elite force – [Iron Blood Legion] had marched out of St. Petersburg and camped one kilometer away from where the affiliated kingdoms are at. Empire Yassin who is really ill at the moment was raged. Everyone thought that the empire would send this legion to the border in case the Spartax Empire invades, but the elder prince, Zenit’s God of War – Arshavin, and the second prince Dominguez were both ordered to investigate into what happened, and both of them were ordered to move independently……”
Old Zola gradually got into the zone as he explained concisely, and young Modric would jump in here and there to add more details. Slowly, the two of them got more and more compatible.
“Independently? Not restricted from each other?” Fei suddenly voiced. He smiled as he tapped the handle on his stone chair: “It sounds like the two princes are competing.”
“That’s right, your majesty. That’s what a lot of people are saying. It seems like the empire is trying to use this to see who shall inherit the throne. After all, they are the two most prominent candidates.” Old Zola analyzed: “It was heard that after the empire sent the order, almost all forces at St. Petersburg started to take their sides. After this assassination incident, the battle for the throne that occurred for more than a year now will finally be settled. All the nobles were getting anxious, and even the affiliated kingdoms started to make moves.”
This was old man Zola’s hidden reminder for Fei that Chambord was facing the same choices.
Of course, Fei got what Zola meant, however –
“We don’t have to hurry on this topic. The battle for the throne isn’t that simple. Also, the spot the affiliated kingdoms are in is different from the noble families. To us, we can wait quietly for the winner to appear. Even if some kingdoms what to take the bet, the ones who jumped too early are just gambling addicts.” Fei who had the secret cheat code wasn’t huge on getting more influence in the empire, and he was able to remain cool in a heated situation like this.
Both Zola and Modric were interested and talented in collecting of information, and they weren’t good at managing kingdoms. After seeing the king made up his mind, they didn’t say anything else.
“Right now, the atmosphere is really tense. The [Iron Blood Legion] of the elder prince and the people of second prince both made arrests here, and more than 1000 people were arrested today. Both of them established a curfew; no one is allowed to walk outside of their own campsite after evening…… a few groups of soldiers came by to do searches. But after knowing that your majesty was here, they were all very polite. After some easy search, they all left.”
As Zola said that, both he and Modric looked at the man in front of them with admiration and proudness.
For a long time, Chambord was the one who was bullied and harmed. All the adjacent kingdoms were able to step on them easily. The status of people from Chambord was only a bit higher than slaves who lost their freedom, and killing a Chambordian wasn’t a crime in the empire; it was treated as if someone killed a stranded dog.
