Chapter 528: How About Joining Us? (Part Two)
Alan wasn’t a part of Black-Cloth Shrine, but he somehow decided to take the forbidden action to join the shrine after this adventure. It was quite surprising.
“Right Deacon, you are being too polite.” Fei was shocked when he heard of the name ‘Black-Cloth Shrine.’ However, his face didn’t give anything away as he greeted them calmly.
After the incident with Priest Balesi, the Holy Church was already an ‘Imaginary Enemy’ in Fei’s head. As a result, he read up on a lot of books that talked about the history of the Holy Church. Therefore, he knew this famous shrine that once greatly influenced the Holy Church.
“I didn’t expect that Jessie is from Black-Cloth Shrine. Too mad…… If he is at any other shrine, he will get a great status with his age, power, and potential. Eh…… However, Black-Cloth Shrine sure has accumulations. When all other shrines are attacking it, it is still able to nurture such a talented genius like Jessie. Unfortunately, Pope Blatter and other shrines are going to continue to suppress it, and it is likely that this shrine is going to die off and become a part of the history.”
Fei thought to himself as he wondered why they were here.
It was clear that the three of them weren’t here just to thank him.
In Fei’s mind, even if people were going to come and thank him, it was going to be Jessie and Alan. This elder Batistuta’s arrival took him by surprise. Although he never heard of this person before, he could clearly sense the power that was hidden in this elder’s body. The thickness and volume of the Holy Power Batistuta had was enough to battle Fei’s strongest Barbarian Character.
It was evident that this elder was one of the few surviving core decision makers in Black-Cloth Shrine.
Since such a person came to visit Fei and declare his identity, Fei knew that there was more to it.
“It looks like Your Majesty know about our Black-Cloth Shrine?” As soon as this elder took a seat, he asked that question.
Afterward, he picked up the teacup that a maid served and took a sip. A surprised expression appeared on his face as he asked, “Huh? What is this water? It sure tastes good!”
He then chugged it down and laughed, “Nice! It is a little bitter at first, but it is a little sweet afterward! Such drink! If I’m not wrong, it is because of these few leaves in the water. Your Majesty, what are these unique leaves?”
This elder’s laughter was loud and clear. Like the bright sun in the sky, nothing was covered up or hidden.
“Just something I made when I was bored. I call it ‘tea.’ It is something that could help you concentrate a little. If Right Deacon likes it, you can take some when you leave,” Fei said proudly. He didn’t expect that a master liked something he made unintentionally outside of Chambord.
After a short pause, Fei continued, “You are right. Black-Cloth Shrine was one of the most prestigious and honorable shrines in the Holy Church, and everyone on the continent knows about it. I had read some good books on it.”
“Yeah, it once was. But now, all the prestige and honor are almost depleted……” A solemn expression appeared on Batistuta’s face. However, that expression only appeared for a brief second. He soon returned to his confident and straightforward self and asked with passion in his eyes, “I heard from Jessie that Your Majesty is a [God’s Favorite Child]? Are you willing to join our Black-Cloth Shrine and become our shrine’s [God’s Favorite Child]?”
As soon as he said that, Fei spat out the tea in his mouth.
The King didn’t expect this elder to say something this direct. It was shocking, to say the least.
Jessie, on the other hand, was shocked as well. He thought to himself, “Ah! Right Deacon really sent out the invitation! He invited the King of Chambord! God! Mr. Batistuta is sure crazy about finding a [God’s Favorite Child] for the shrine! He didn’t even ask any deep questions! Black-Cloth Shrine is now like a rat in the eyes of other members of the Holy Church. Why would the King of Chambord want to join such a run-down shrine?”
All three people of the Holy Church looked at Fei nervously.
(TL Note: I assume that there are the Right Deacon and the Left Deacon under the position of Bishop in the shrine. I could be wrong, but this is how I interpret this.)
