Chapter 270: A Sleepless Night
This had almost become a tradition. Every time when Fei went out to the battlefield, Angela would wait for her beloved Fei to come back and prepare hot bathing water for him to bath in, so he could wash away his tiredness in the warm water.
To Fei, he was so powerful that he did not need to reduce his fatigue through bathing in warm water. He also had magic potion like [Rejuvenile Potion] that could make him recover his physical vitality at any time and maintain an optimum physical state. But maybe it was due to Fei’s illusion, he always felt so comfortable and wanted to hum every time when he lied in the warm water that Angela prepared for him. It was a true relaxation of his mind; every pore on his body would open up. It was as comforting as when his mom sang a lullaby to him when he was young.
“Oh right, Angela, I have a gift for you.”
After taking a hot bath, Fei changed into a loose robe, which made him look more handsome. He came to the stone table and ate some of the breakfast that Angela prepared. Then, he suddenly thought of something and took out an item from his storage ring with a smile on his face.
That thing was the blue furry robe made from Demon Beast Blue Fox’s fur; it belonged to the leader of Blood-Edge before.
Fei took out a plain paper and a bottle of ink that were made from the paper factory from Chambord. He thought for a moment and quickly formed a sketch of the charming wide-sleeved fairy dress that Kui Long wore from a TV series [Chinese Paladin 3] in his mind. With his sketching skills, he quickly and accurately drew down the general shape of this dress on paper.
“Woah, what a unique and beautiful dress,” Angela was looking at it quietly, and she could not hold back her admirations any longer when Fei was done drawing it.
“As long as you like it. This dress was known as wide-sleeved fairy dress, and there was a beautiful tale about it.” Fei cuddled the beauty in front of him and told her about the beautiful love story between a prince and a princess who were from a different space. Afterward, Fei took the furry robe that was in his hands and used force to wash away the last sense of the leader of Blood-Edge that was left on it. He smiled and said: “This fur is shining and crystal-like with an eerie blue light on it. It was peeled off from a level 6 Demon Beast Blue Fox. Not only can it immunize you from any ice elemental magic below four-star, it also has an incomparable effect on keeping the warmth. It is just right to make a real wide-sleeved fairy dress for you. Imperial Capital’s severe winter is coming; if you do not have a dress like this, you won’t be able to endure the severe coldness since you don’t have any warrior energy or magic energy.”
Angela had small with an hourglass figure; this furry robe was more than enough to be made into a dress.
“What? You two do not know what Paris and His Majesty were talking about, but they were talking the whole time along the way?”
Inside the tent beside the King’s tent, the blonde little loli Emma was looking for Drogba and Pierce to have a talk. The talk’s main focus was on whether the coquettish demonic girl Paris tried to seduce Alexander or not during their mission at the Imperial Capital.
Even though through their talk during the day, Emma had a much better impression of Paris and already resolved her hatred towards her, the little loli took her bestie’s side firmly since this mattered to Angela’s. Before the mission group left, little loli already told Drogba and Pierce to look out for His Majesty the King in secret; she ordered them to never let Paris who was a potential threat to Angela to have a chance to hook up with the King. However, who would have thought that during tonight’s battle, Pierce and Drogba were addicted to killing and completely forgot about the order from the little loli.
Upon seeing the blonde little loli with an unkind face, Drogba and Pierce were feeling a little uneasy.
“Emma, don’t worry. Angela Her Highness is gentle and kind-hearted, she is a goddess descending from the sky, and she is the most precious pearl of Chambord. There is no way that His Majesty would fall in love with that demonic girl…”
“Right, right, right. You didn’t see it, but that demonic girl was with a very, very, handsome man who was carrying a little dog. I bet he is her boy-toy… There is no way that she would like His Majesty either!”
The two morons found many excuses to distance themselves from responsibilities. They tried every possible way to persuade Emma who was still skeptical, and they finally sent this loli that they were scared of away.
“Pierce, but why do I feel that judging from the expression of that girl, she might actually like His Majesty…” Drogba went back to the tent as he scratched his head and asked thoughtfully.
“Not only the demonic girl; I think the Elder Princess Tanasha also had a pretty good impression of His Majesty. Hehe, they say that she gave His Majesty a black token as a token of affection when she left…” Pierce was also like a moron who enjoyed gossiping.
“This can’t be helped. Since Alexander His Majesty is young, handsome, and has unbeatable power, everyone has heard the name – [Sky Covering Fist] King of Chambord, across the camp area and St. Petersburg. Hehe, with a man like this, every woman would want to pursue him!” Pierce said as if he was a “know-it-all of love”.
It was the darkest moment before dawn.
Masses of dark clouds swam from Moro Mountains and covered all the stars in the sky.
Pretty mercenary Elena with powerful magic equipment sat beside the river quietly while holding her arms around her knees. The longbow that never left her hand was carefully put beside her legs, and her smooth and pale chin was resting on her knees. The night’s wind swayed her fire red long hair, and the beautiful eyes that were full of murderous spirit and determination during the battle had become peaceful. She was looking at the running water in silent.
She was a Valkyrie who was resting between battles and thinking of the person in her heart.
With her power of being almost six-star, she would not have felt cold even if the weather was a hundred or a thousand times colder. A magic energy surged within a meter radius around her, and the pale blue light disappeared and reappeared; it was beautiful and dreamy under the dark sky.
Even though she just came back from a battle, she was not tired.
But only if that man could be at her side to provide a thick shoulder for her to lean on. How good would that be!
But no matter what happened, Elena knew that she would only draw her bow and fight for one person in her life!
This was a sleepless night.
“Oh, Priest Balesi gifted all of the treasure to Alexander?”
Imperial Capital, Elder Princess Mansion.
Elder Princess Tanasha only wore a gauzy dress that emphasized her thin but hourglass-like figure. Everything about her gave off an elegant and intelligent vibe. Her feet that were as pale as jade half-lied on her soft and fragrant bed. After hearing the pretty girl in purple clothes Ziene’s report, her thin and long eyebrows knitted, and she asked rhetorically with a quiet voice as if she could not understand something.
“That’s right, Your Highness. Priest Balesi acted as the representative of [God’s Favorite Child] Kaka from Holy Church before he left, and he invited Alexander to another meeting,” Ziene carefully narrated what happened in the underground hall at the headquarter of Blood-Edge.
“Holy Church has always valued themselves very much. They never pay attention to others, and that [God’s Favorite Child] Kaka is an important person from the headquarters of the church as they say. When he visited the mainland this time, he was keeping a low profile and a mysterious figure. When he came to St. Petersburg, he declined to see all visitors, even father could not meet him. But Kaka invited Alexander…Why? Even though Alexander’s power and potentials were shocking, he was not at the level of [God’s Favorite Child] who is highly likely to be the future successor of Holy Church. Maybe… There is something else that we do not know?”
Elder Princess talked to herself.
Her eyebrows knitted even more tightly, and she bent over her head as she had a hard time forming her thoughts together. She looked so weak that everyone would want to protect her.
“Alexander humiliated the fourth prince, but Dominguez did not try to stop it. Dominguez also even allowed Alexander to call him Oka… Well, I guess this crazy prince brother also thinks highly of the King of Chambord. I have to admit, he did a much better job than brother Arshavin tonight!”
“But I don’t understand it. The older brother has always been keen on drawing and recruiting heroes and men of virtue and talents; why does he always hold a grudge against Alexander!”
Elder Princess became more confused in the end.
But she quickly made her decision, “Send someone tomorrow and deliver all treasures we got from the headquarters of Blood-Edge to the camp of Chambord. Say that …… Just say that I, Tanasha, want to gift these to my dear friends Angela and little Emma.”
“Yes, your highness,” Ziene nodded.
Upon seeing this, Elder Princess suddenly laughed, and the whole hall lightened up. Her dark blue eyes gave out an enchanting light as she asked: “Ziene, if I remembered it correctly, you were one of those who met the king of Chambord pretty early on, and I think you suggested that I should kill him. What do you think now? What is your opinion of this man?”
“Hmm… I won’t be able to kill him now!” Ziene lowered her head.
“Hahaha, if you can kill him, will you do it?”
“I… King Chambord should not be killed!”
“There is someone that Ziene thinks should not be killed?” Elder Princess laughed.
On the second day.
When dawn just came, there was a sudden turmoil in the camp area. It was so chaotic that chickens were flying and dogs were jumping.
Many soldiers from Imperial Capital stormed in and started the strictest search ever. Many cavaliers rushed in between the campsites of different affiliated kingdoms on their horses, and even people from the ten level 1 affiliated kingdoms were ordered to stay within their campsites. The camp area was full of patrols formed by soldiers; except for soldiers from Imperial Patrol, [Iron Blood Legion], and four Battle Legions, the Cavaliers of Imperial Knight Palace who had kept silent since the defeat of the four Executive Knights by King Chambord finally joined in on the more and more serious search for the assassins from Spartax Empire.
