Chapter 624: Who Is He? (Part Two)
-Imperial Knight Palace-
In the huge black tower that was surrounded and protected by ten smaller black towers, there was a tall man who was sitting down on a chair. He had short, blond hair, and his brows were sharp like knives.
He suddenly opened his eyes and stopped resting, and two dashes of light shot out of his eyes and pierced into the dark sky.
“So reckless. Is someone trying to charge at the Capital alone? Hahaha, nothing this interesting had happened at St. Petersburg for a long time. Who is it? Could it be that little guy?”
At the same time, a series of energy fluctuations appeared in the other ten towers around the central tower. It was clear that the ten Executive Knights also discovered this insane incident.
“Guard your own towers! You guys aren’t allowed to leave unless you have my permission!”
This man’s incontestable voice sounded in the main halls of the ten towers.
Soon, the ten energy surges all quieted down and disappeared into the black towers.
Inside the grand hall, a figure who was semi-lying down on a golden dragon throne suddenly opened his eyes, and a mystic glare appeared. Not sure what this ‘old’ emperor was thinking about, but he soon closed his eyes again.
Then, clouds of misty golden energy enveloped the dragon throne and blocked everything off.
The atmosphere inside the palace was like a dead lake, lacking vitality. Also, the light smell of potion and medicine floated in the air.
Then, a series of rapid footsteps sounded outside the palace.
A master who was wearing a golden guardian armor quickly walked into the palace and single-kneeled. He said loudly, “Your Majesty, a powerful master is charging at the Capital, and the city defense array is already activated. Your Majesty, should we initiate the royal palace’s magic array and send [Godly Dragon Guards] to hold the enemy out of the city?”
The figure on the dragon throne didn’t respond for a long time as if he fell asleep.
However, this master didn’t dare to urge him at all.
After a while, this figure on the dragon throne opened his mouth and said, “Wait.”
-The Imperial Military Headquarters in St. Petersburg-
In front of the gate of the palace that represented the supreme military power of the empire, Crown Prince Arshavin was standing there in a long black cape. As he looked at the sky in the northwest direction, a glare appeared in his eyes.
Behind him, there were more than a dozen most powerful officials in the Imperial Military Headquarters. They were standing there humbly and surrounded the prince like stars around the moon. After all, even though Crown Prince Arshavin wasn’t the emperor yet, he already had complete control of the military power of Zenit secretly.
Rather than flattering this young prince like usual, the officials all looked at the orange magic energy sphere with stern expressions. In fact, they were focusing on the pool of colorful energies that was dispersing into the sky in the northwest. Even though it was prettier than fireworks, it also represented insane danger and death!
“Which one of you could tell me who that is?! How dare this person attack the Capital of our empire?” Arshavin asked without even turning his head around, and his expression wasn’t pretty.
He wiped out the nemesis of Zenit, Spartax, and he obliterated another old opponent, Eindhoven. After that, he quickly returned to the Capital heroically and finally gained complete control of the Imperial Military Headquarters. Then, his plan was executed slowly yet steadily.
This was the time for him to establish prestige and dominance, making the final charge at the throne. However, this incident that was super rare occurred. Even if the intruder were eliminated, this was already a huge disgrace to the Imperial Military Headquarters and the troops.
Now, Arshavin’s political enemies who were suppressed to an extreme degree could use this fact to attack him.
The officials in the Imperial Military Headquarters looked at each other and couldn’t answer Arshavin’s question.
They got nothing. After all, their intelligence network didn’t get any information on this prior.
“This is disappointing, could you……” Crown Prince Arshavin couldn’t help but scold.
However, before he could finish, something happened!
“I’m King Alexander of Chambord. I’m here only for Andrew Arshavin and don’t want to attack the city. Anyone who dares to attack me again shall bear the consequences!”
This loud roar sounded in the sky like thunder, and it interrupted Arshavin. This voice easily penetrated through the orange magic array and sounded by everyone’s ear clearly, making their heads buzz.
Arshavin gaped and couldn’t finish his sentence.
The officials behind him were stunned as well. Their expressions froze on their faces, and they looked at Crown Prince Arshavin and didn’t know if they should laugh or cry.
