Chapter 736: [One Sword] Is Innocent (Part One)
The token that was by this military clerk’s feet was the Martial Saint Token that represented the Imperial Martial Saint.
Although it was only about the size of a palm and had the shape of a hexagon, it wasn’t made from any rare material, and it looked ordinary. However, the value of this black token was enough to make the Empire shake!
The previous Martial Saint, Krasic, was only a Moon-Class Elite, but his prestige was very high, and every citizen of Zenit respected him. Now, King Alexander of Chambord is a legend in the history of Zenit, and he just stopped powerful enemies from conquering Zenit. In fact, his influence was almost on par with Emperor Yassin when he was back at his prime. Right now, the King of Chambord’s thoughts and words could dictate many people’s fates.
The arrival of the Martial Saint Token represented the arrival of the Imperial Martial Saint.
Since the Martial Saint said that [One Sword] was innocent, this military clerk didn’t dare to refuse even if his courage increased by 100 times.
When this military clerk said that no one could save the Xuelun Kingdom, he wasn’t wrong. Even if the Royal Family of Zenit wanted to pardon the Xuelun Kingdom, they had to consider the potential reaction and the anger of the public. However, his mistake was forgetting about King Alexander who just became the Imperial Martial Saint.
“You are Martial Saint Alexander?”
Although Fei was already well-known in St. Petersburg for both the good and the bad, and everyone in the Capital heard of him before, not a lot of people had seen him.
Under some exaggerated rumors, the image of the King of Chambord looked nothing like Fei.
In the rumors, the King of Chambord was several meters tall, full of muscles, had invincible strength, and had lights around him like a god!
Even though some people had seen Fei from a distance before, they couldn’t be sure at this moment.
After all, the new Martial Saint was way too young, looking like a youth who wasn’t even mature yet.
If it weren’t for the Martial Saint Token that reminded this military clerk at this moment, he might not be able to recognize this handsome young man and identify the current Imperial Martial Saint.
Thousands of thoughts flashed in this military clerk’s mind, and he picked up the Martial Saint Token that was on the ground with shaking hands before kneeling and handing the token back to Fei with both hands. After a moment of hesitation, he said, “Sir, [One Sword]’s betrayal is evident, and tens of thousands of soldiers had seen it with their own eyes. The Royal Family and the Imperial Military Headquarters both gave orders to kill the Royal Family of Xuelun. Why are you… trying to save them? If there isn’t a proper explanation, it might hinder your image and prestige in the eyes of the public!”
“[One Sword] is innocent, and there doesn’t need an explanation. Spread my words across the Empire and clean the reputation for the Xuelun Kingdom. If anyone needs an explanation, tell them to come to Martial Saint Mountain and find me!” Fei said firmly after a moment of thinking.
[One Sword] didn’t betray the Empire.
Unfortunately, this young and talented swordsman was too competitive and pursued power eagerly. He was a bit careless and got his body and mind seized by a demon. He wasn’t able to control himself and lead the enemies into Zenit, creating this tragedy.
However, he was able to use his last bit of life energy and power to kill many Moon-Class Elites and soldiers of Ormond with his n*ked body, and he even slayed Prince Xanchua of Ormond and severely injured General Peith of Ormond.
In a sense, he had redeemed himself and made up for his mistake. He was still an honorable warrior who deserved to be recognized and admired.
The theory of [One Sword] starting this war was nonsense.
The Chaos Era had arrived on the Azeroth Continent, and wars between empires were going to be common. Therefore, the invasion of the Ten-Empire United Troops was set in stone. Even if [One Sword] weren’t here, they wouldn’t let the Zenitians off the hook.
One could only say that this genius swordsman was played by fate mercilessly.
According to [One Sword]’s last dying wish, Fei wasn’t going to make this information public and explain everything. However, he was going to protect [One Sword]’s wife and kid, as well as the Royal Family of Xuelun. This Luffy was the son of a loyal master of Zenit who died so young, and this boy deserved to live in this cold world.
