Chapter 251: Entering the Capital at Night
The military exercise among the affiliated kingdoms had been put on hold, and the search for the assassins from Spartax Empire got more ferocious.
Since the identity of the assassins was identified, the two empires all went into battle modes. Spartax Empire that had 100,000 soldiers around the border started the first small initiation, and Zenit defended against it. Two empires battled around the first and most important city on the border – Razor City…… every day, numerous white letters were sent into the Military Headquarter at Zenit like snow, and the War Machine got cracked up.
However, any information about the situation around the border was locked, and regular people couldn’t know what was going on.
One thing the regular people did know was that sh*t was about to go down; they felt a pressure that they hadn’t felt for a long time.
On the seventh night when Fei was instructing his four disciples from Hot Spring Gate on assassination skills, Torres came in and said that a mysterious visitor was here to see him.
Fei laughed. He knew who that was as soon as that person stepped into the camp.
“Ms. Paris, I haven’t seen you in so long. I thought you forgot about our deal.” Fei smiled as he looked at the beautiful girl who was walking into the camp. Fei didn’t stand up from his throne but rather hand gestured the guest to grab a sit.
“Giggles…… Alexander, you name is now well-known around the capital after the duel. Numerous people want to meet you, and it is hard to squeeze in. I only came after I got courageous; I was afraid that I couldn’t be let in.”
Paris was always in the same outfit; long white robe and a fresh rose in her hand. The contrast between the while and the red seemed to notify the people around her about her contradicting personalities. She was a cruel strategist that everyone feared, but she was also a passionate and intimate friend. This girl was smooth at switching between different characters and emotions.
Fei was used to this girl’s tricks so he wasn’t fooled.
At this time, the entrance to the tent opened, and Emma poked her head in. After seeing Paris, her face changed color. Like a furious little bird, she walked into the tent while dragging someone along with her.
The tent was lit up as this person came in.
It was Angela.
The girl looked a bit nervous. She looked at Fei with a little apologetic feel to it as she tried to pull her hand out of Emma’s hand.
After seeing this, Fei immediately knew what was happening – Emma had thought about something else when she saw a beautiful figure walking into the central tent. She dragged Angela here to catch Fei “cheating”. Even after finding out she was wrong, she still dragged Angela into the tent as a way of telling Fei “You have a wife, don’t fool around!”
Fei found it funny how little Emma was looking at him with a stubborn expression.
“Wow, you are so cute!” Paris was really intelligent. She knew what was going on and quickly smiled at the two girls intimately. She took out some precious gifts from nowhere and gave it to the two girls as an apology for what happened on the Peak of East Mountain at Chambord.
At first, little Emma didn’t buy it. However, Paris was on another level. She knew that little Emma was a nice girl who looked tough on the surface. Paris started to explain how she was also an orphan when she was young and got bullied all the time, as well as how she was rescued by the second prince Dominguez and got involved in the cruel politics to pay Dominguez back. She also indirectly conveyed the idea that she wasn’t here for King Alexander but to help Chambord take out Blood-Edge Mercenary Group……
Fei was stunned on the throne.
He was able to see from the outside how this Paris was able to quickly dissolve the hostility between them. Soon, the three girls were chatting with each other like long-lost sisters……
“No wonder Tanasha told me that you were in a very tough situation before.” Angela sighed as she felt very sympathetic towards Paris.
“Huh? Elder Princess said that?” Paris asked as she was a little surprised.
“Yeah……” Angela ordered the servants to bring up wine and fruits, and she started to treat Paris; it was a sign that she was seeing Paris as a friend.
Soon, the topic went back to the reason why Paris was here.
“As you requested, I have arranged everything. Tonight at midnight, you can bring a maximum of ten people with you into St. Petersburg, and you only have two hours to deal with Blood-Edge Mercenary Group. After two hours, you need to leave whether or not you have wiped them……” Paris told all Fei all her arrangements despite the fact that Angela and Emma were still there.
This straightforward attitude made a better impression of her in Angela and Emma’s mind.
“Two hours is enough!” Fei knew about the strength of Blood-Edge very well, and he had plans of his own.
It was the evening.
There were only a few people walking in the camp area since most of the people went back to their campsite and waited for the beginning of tonight’s curfew. After experiencing the “white terror” for some time now, everyone here got used to it; they knew they would survive if they were obedient and behaved properly.
A team of 50 imperial soldiers quietly entered Chambord’s camp under the cover of the darkness.
In less than ten minutes, 50 imperial soldiers quickly left the camp.
They caused no issues. The Imperial Patrol was a force under the Second Prince’s control, and the Imperial Patrol was one of the main forces who was investigating the assassination incidents. Even though the King of Chambord’s name was so well-known, Chambord still needed to be searched every day. However, that was more like an act; no one dared to cause a mess at Chambord’s campsite like they did to other kingdoms.
These 50 soldiers didn’t catch anyone’s attention.
After leaving Chambord, they didn’t search other kingdoms; they cut through the camp area directly and passed through layers of inspections between the camp area and St. Petersburg. After successfully entering the South Gate of St. Petersburg, they disappeared into the darkness like a water droplet in an ocean.
It was a full moon night.
“Your majesty, those red structures up ahead is the headquarter of Blood-Edge. 80% of their strength and wealth are concentrated here. Especially after the assassinations from Spartax Empire, most of the forces in Zenit had concentrated their power; Blood-Edge did the same. Tonight, all of the high-level people in Blood-Edge are here.”
The six-floor pub that they were in was one of the locations in St. Petersburg that Dominguez had control of, and it was the tallest building around this area. After walking up the stairs onto the fourth floor, Fei was able to get a good elevated view of the area and Blood-Edge. After listening to the henchmen of Paris explaining the details to him, Fei was able to complete his plans.
“Alright, I got it. Thank you for your help, mister.” Fei nodded.
“Your majesty had shocked the empire, and it is my honor to help you tonight.” The red-bearded officer from Imperial Patrol said: “According to the plan, you are able to take action after fifteen minutes. Ms. Paris asked me to tell you that Blood-Edge is one of the top mercenary groups around, and they are stacked with wealth. If your majesty is able to wipe them out, Chambord would be able to get 30% of the share!”
“30%” Fei frowned a little.
But he soon understood why.
It was impossible for him not to disturb the numerous patrolling soldiers and high-level warriors who were guarding the area; after all, the Empire was under the strict monitoring and guarding mode. Also, it was rumored that Blood-Edge had the support of a superpower – Fellon Family. Under such circumstance, Paris must have negotiated some kind of terms with all these other superpowers to get him two hours of free time. After looking at it from this perspective, 30% of the total trophies was huge.
“Sounds good.” Fei nodded.
The red-bearded officer looked calm after hearing this, but he was a little surprised.
It was the first time he met the famous King of Chambord. He heard that this king was super strong, and he thought this king must be arrogant and unwise since Chambord was so remote. But now, his respect for Fei grew higher as he thought: “There are no scammers under such big fame.”
