Chapter 321: Pressure (Part One)
“Haha, don’t worry! As long as you want to join the Shrine Choir, the Church can stand up for you and cancel the engagement. You are gifted. If you join the Shrine Choir, you would have a good chance at becoming a Saintess. By then, you would be able to communicate to the gods and hold supreme power. You would be the representative of the gods, and anything you say would be treated with great respect. Your family and friends would also be uplifted by you. All of this can be achieved as long as you nod your head……”
Priest Balesi’s words were filled with temptation as he told Angela about her potential bright future.
“Thank you, Mr. Priest. However, I don’t want to become a nun.”
Angela replied directly. Balesi was a little surprised by Angela’s immediate answer. He was disappointed, and he couldn’t believe what he had heard.
After looking at the king of Chambord who was sneering and the angry warriors of Chambord, he knew what he said had triggered a lot of people. What he did was similar to robbing the king of Chambord’s fiancée, and he just offended this force that recently got power.
However, the girl in front of him had the purest soul he had ever seen, and she would be very important to how he and his people can advance inside the Holy Church. Even if he had to offend Chambord, he didn’t care. After all, a little affiliated kingdom was nothing; even Zenit was like a bug in the eyes of the Holy Church.
“Beautiful lady, I hope you can really re-consider my offer. Being a Saintess of the Holy Church is hundreds of thousands of times better than being the queen of a little affiliated kingdom.” Balesi spoke again and was unwilling to give up.
Angela didn’t say anything. She held onto Fei’s hands tightly and shook her head.
Balesi looked at their hands as if he understood something. He smiled and said: “As long as you agree, we are not scared of threats. Haha, don’t worry about that. As long as you agree, no one dares to stop someone from becoming a member of the Shrine Choir.”
What he said was really mean; he was obviously trying to create cracks in Fei and Angela’s relationship.
Disgust appeared in Angela’s peaceful and calm eyes. She said slowly, “No one is threatening me at Chambord. However, I can sense a lot of threat in your words, Ms. Priest.”
Balesi’s face got a little red as he was embarrassed. He opened his mouth and couldn’t follow up with anything.
At this time, Fei suddenly stood up.
As he stood up, his dark red cape fluttered; it looked like a bloody flag that was in battle. A huge force blew at Balesi, and the patched robe he was wearing was fluttering backward as well. Although it didn’t break off of his body, it was tightly pressed against his not-so-bulky body.
The huge power made Balesi’s body shake. Although he didn’t fall down or move back, his feet were driven deep into the ground by him; his ankles couldn’t even be seen. Dense spider web-like cracks appeared on the ground and continued to expand.
Tink! Tink! Tink!
After seeing this, the dozen silver armored cavaliers of the Holy Church drew their swords as their faces changed color. They stood in front of Balesi and went against the pressure Fei was giving off together.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
The warriors of Chambord like Drogba, Pierce, and Robbin also slapped the table, drew their weapons, and was about to strike.
The atmosphere inside the tent got very tense. As if a huge stone was hanging on a strand of hair, it was about to break loose at any second. The tent shook violently under the blowing wind, and the noises it made was breath-taking.
“Hahaha, I’m just playing. Why so serious?” Fei laughed as he suddenly pulled back his power.
Balesi who was trying to go against Fei’s force didn’t react fast enough. He pushed forward habitually and almost fell on his face. It was fortunate that he was powerful and stopped himself right there. His face was all red as he fell to a disadvantage.
“It is late already. It is dark outside, and the terrain around here is pretty bad. Since Kaka His Highness needs to travel out tonight, it is better to leave earlier.” Fei asked them to leave firmly.
“You……” All of Balesi’s hairs stood up.
