Chapter 219: The So-Called Friend
Wind-Whisper Tavern, also known as Wind-Speak, was one of the most famous pubs in the Twenty Mile District.
The reason it was famous, besides its large area, prime location, having the most fragrant wine, most beautiful maids, and most delicious dishes, was the fact that it had tough fists. In the Twenty Mile District that never lacked chaos and blood, no one dared to stir up any trouble within a hundred meters around the Wind-Whisper Tavern. Perhaps there had been a few not-so-clever guys, but they eventually disappeared into the darkness off the face of this Earth.
From what some well-informed guests revealed, there seemed to be the shadow of the Imperial Army looming behind this tavern.
The royal noble knights freely travelled here without any one daring to block their way, and the knight in the lead brought Fei to the front of the Wind-Whisper Tavern. The most passionate waiter was already waiting at the front as he hurried out to greet these guests. He led them into the tavern, and the climate immediately warmed up. The magic spell here worked even better than the central air-conditioning from Fei’s past life, and from the moment Fei stepped into the Tavern, he already felt the atmosphere and force of the Wind-Whisper Tavern.
Rather than calling it a tavern, it was in fact a six-story building.
Fei followed the stairs and quickly arrived at the sixth floor which would allow him to see the entire Twenty Mile rooftop. The royal knight that had been accompanying Fei wasn’t qualified to enter the sixth floor, so only Fei was admitted.
The entire sixth floor only had one hall, and the level of luxurious decorations was far beyond an average person’s imagination.
There wasn’t the kind of lively scene of hustling and bustling maids and guards as Fei expected. The luxurious hall seemed very quiet, and there wasn’t even a single server. At the near-east direction of the hall beside the window, there sat a purple ebony wood table that was covered into the shape of a giant dragon spreading its wings. The four little dishes on the table exuded a little warmth, and the crystal gold wine bottle with a simple yet elegant design exuded an intoxicating wine fragrance. The whole world seemed to have been cut apart from the hustle and bustle of the street outside, everything was extremely elegant, graceful, fresh, and pleasant.
Fei’s eyes soon focused onto the window-side.
Because there stood a person.
An elegant woman with peerless beauty.
To Fei, this woman indeed counted as someone from the past – the flirtatious beauty Hilton Paris.
In the past during the coronation ceremony, at Chambord City’s eastern mountain top at sunrise, she was the terrifying woman who almost successfully killed Elder Princess Tanasha and the [Zenit Military God] Arshavin.
If it was half a month ago, seeing this scary woman, Fei would have probably turned around, covered his head and ran right away. After all, on that day of the Eastern Mountain Top battle, he p*ssed off that woman too much. If this woman would go all crazy again and try to take revenge, Fei would probably be in big trouble. But, now Fei’s strength had risen sharply and was absolutely enough to protect himself, so he was able to quickly calm himself down.
“King Alexander, we meet again.”
Paris, in a graceful white dress, slowly turned around. Her peerless smile was able to easily snatch most men’s soul. Her golden hair slightly danced with the wind, and there was a budding blood-red rose inserted in her hair. She elegantly walked to the small table, reached out her hand towards the table as an invite and said, “Your Majesty, please sit.”
Fei slightly smiled, then went to the table and sat down.
“Your Majesty doesn’t seem to be surprised at all, could it be that you already know it was me that invited you?” The slender white arms gracefully began pouring wine out of the gold crystal wine bottle. Her elegant manner with her tempting demeanor made it hard for anyone to associate her with the cold blood sinister female devil back on the Eastern Mountain top.
“Haha, on the invitation, there was a faint fragrance, and if I remember correctly, I once sensed this smell before on the Eastern Mountain top, so I was able to make a guess.”
Fei was extremely relaxed, his eyes swept past the few dishes on the table. Although they are all normal dishes, but they were clearly from the hands of master chefs. The scent, appearance, and taste were all there. The work was delicate, and they it was enough to make a man drool. Ever since Fei arrived at the Chambord camp at noon, Fei indeed hadn’t had dinner yet, and he was for a second attracted by these exquisite dishes. Without hesitation, he took out a delicate pair of bamboo chopsticks and began treating himself to the feast.
“Your Majesty is indeed full of surprises, at the war in the past, whether it was me or the elder princess, we both underestimated Your Majesty.” Paris didn’t mind Fei’s impoliteness. She brought up the little glass in front of her, covered her mouth with her sleeve and drank the whole cup.
“Haha, you are over-praising me.”
“No, not at all. In my opinion, Your Majesty deserve such praise…” Paris picked up a soft piece of meat into her mouth, slightly smiled and said, “It’s just that, I’m very curious, since you already guessed that it was an invitation from an enemy of yours from the past, you still dared to come alone. Could Your Majesty really not be worry at all that I would set up a death trap here? Or do you really think that, I dare not to kill you?”
Right after the voice ended, Paris’s face suddenly changed, the elegant and tempting smile immediately disappeared without a trace, and what replaced it was an aura that would chill one to the bones. This was a sharp killing intent only cultivated by experienced masters, and if it was someone else in front of Paris right now, they would’ve already been scared shitless.
Fei raised his cup and drank it all. He shook his head and smiled and said, “Under the demonic moon by the window, there’s good wine on the high floor. Such a beautiful scene, like a peerless beauty, I thought you would talk about something interesting, why would you bring up such a serious topic? Ok, since, as a beautiful lady, you are that straightforward, I have no choice but to be more straightforward… Yes, to be honest, I am indeed not worried at all. Back then you couldn’t kill me at the Eastern Mountain top, now you have even less of a chance in succeeding!”
“Sometimes, being overly confident, is being hopelessly stupid!” The devil-like woman sneered, “Chambord King, I know you defeated the Golden Sun Knight Sutton at the Twin-Tower peak, but such an achievement is nothing. In the Empire Capital, the number of people that could defeat Sutton is not a minority!”
Fei touched his chin, smiled but didn’t say anything, not wanting to argue.
Paris coldly stared at Fei. Such dreamy eyes should not emit such a chilly feeling, but she stared for a full minute, yet the guy she was staring at was still casually eating and drinking. The depth of her eyes flashed with a hint of frustration, and suddenly she covered her mouth and smiled. The thousand-year frost ice on her peerless face instantly melted, and the familiar seductive smile reappeared. Her whole person instantly became a ball of passionate flame as she laughed and said, “Heehee, after the depart on the Eastern Mountain Top, within just a few months, Your Majesty’s fame already shook the entire empire. Upon meeting you today, such grace, is indeed at a level I have no choice but to look up to!”
“Grace, is forged on top of having strength.” Fei was not modest.
“I heard that tomorrow at noon, you will be dueling with the Seventh Execution Knight on the First Sword Testing Stage. I don’t know if your Majesty knows about this execution knight that goes by the name [Bloodthirst]?” Paris gently got up to pour a cup of wine for Fei.
“Nope.” Fei honestly replied.
“In that case, here I have something about the Seventh Execution Knight – [Bloodthirst Knight] Kelude’s strength’s most detailed report, including his most energy technique [Burning Wild Flame Blade]’s features, as well as his top ten combos and tactics explained. I will give this to Your Majesty!”
Paris said, took out a black steel box, placed it on the desk, and pushed it to Fei’s side.
