Chapter 709: Reinforcing the Empire (Part One)
After Fei wandered around the city, he was quite pleased.
Then, he went to the administrative center, summoned all the high-level officials, and heard the report on the overall defense work of the kingdom. After that, he told them about his ideas and plans for the future, making sure that they knew what the priorities were.
Fei thought for a while and felt like he didn’t overlook anything. Then, he left Chambord City and went to the mountain that the Xuan’ge was resting on.
Although this mountain wasn’t too steep, Fei cut off its top using a sword energy, making it seem a lot steeper than it really was.
Right now, the cliffs were several hundred meters tall, and it was slippery. Warriors who hadn’t reached Seven-Star and mages who hadn’t achieved Four-Star wouldn’t be able to escape from here on their own. Therefore, the Xuan’ge and more than 100 ship slaves were all temporarily kept here.
When Fei arrived, the most basic teleportation station that Cain and Akara created was already set up. This type of basic teleportation station was the most recent product from the mad scientists’ laboratory, and they were easy to carry and simple to use. Even the ordinary soldiers who knew a little about magic knowledge would be able to set them up.
This specific station in front of Fei was powered by magic crystals, and it looked like a small circular platform that was made from combining six circular sectors. This circular station was about two meters in diameter, and it shot out a magic energy flame that was about three meters tall. It allowed four people to step in at the same time.
However, there were six ship slaves on the ground near this station. They were quite injured and tied with ropes.
“What happened?” Fei asked with a frown.
Before Robbin could answer, Sparrow and Barbossa rushed over and tried to explain. Sparrow swayed a little and said with a bright smile on his face, “Your Majesty, so you are the famous King of Chambord! Haha, we are honored! You must know that I already heard your name when I was at the Ormond Empire. Even the fierce Ormondians talked about your power and glory! Haha, we are…”
“Don’t waste my time; answer me directly.” Fei frowned impatiently, and his overpowering aura instantly pressed down on the area.
Sparrow opened his mouth, but he was still thinking about how he should phrase this.
While that was happening, Barbossa chimed in with a smile and said lightly, “There is nothing significant. These few had bad tempers, and they got into a little conflict with the soldiers of Chambord. That is why they are tied up. Don’t worry, Your Majesty. As long as Jack and I discipline them and let these b*stards get a taste of pain, they will know how to behave…”
Fei shook his head and didn’t listen to Barbossa’s fluff. Instead, he looked at Robbin.
Robbin was always concise and straightforward, and he explained, “These ship slaves suddenly attacked and tried to rob the teleportation station, kidnap the soldiers who are here to deliver food and water, and escape from here. I took them down and was waiting for Your Majesty to come.”
These ship slaves sure were ferocious characters, and not all of them were easy to subdue. Even though he stunned them with his power and showed them kindness, some of them still had malicious intent. Although the bylaw enforcement officers weren’t weak, they were sneak-attacked. One of the bylaw enforcement officers was severely injured, and it was fortunate that he was saved in time and didn’t die.
After hearing what happened, Fei got very concerned; he suddenly felt like he made a huge mistake.
Chambord was faced with many challenges, and the powerful Ormondians could come here at any moment and wage war.
In this situation, he decided to keep these vicious ship slaves at Chambord just because their leaders looked like Jack Sparrow and Hector Barbossa.
Fei now realized that these ship slaves were a source of uncertainty, and they might cause big trouble for Chambord at critical moments, potentially making Chambord lose the upcoming war and create a tragedy.
As the king of a kingdom, Fei had to consider the big picture, and he couldn’t make decisions based on his own preferences anymore in this Chaos Era.
