Chapter 273: Pass the Mark – Die!
“No…… no, no, I’m not an assassin!”
“Mister, please! Have mercy! I can’t even lift up a blade!”
“Ah, no, no! Save me! Mom……”
After hearing the cold command from the leopard-eyed leader and seeing the captive tools with iron spikes that the cavaliers brought up, the six girls knew what was about to happen. They were so scared that it seemed like their souls tried to escape their bodies. Desperation filled their eyes as they started to shiver.
The cruel treatments of the Black Jail in the Imperial Knight Palace were famous. The two other girls who didn’t know the language of Zenit also knew what was about to happen from the expression from their peers and captive tools. Their faces changed expressions as they kneeled onto the ground. They also begged for mercy. The eight girls looked like small flowers that were getting crushed by the cold wind of the winter.
However, the leader of the cavaliers didn’t even care. He laughed proudly: “Humph! Can’t even speak the official language? They must be the assassins of Spartax! Arrest them!”
Now, the few cavaliers who were hesitating stopped doubting. The metal chain colliding noises sound as the cavaliers lifted up the captive tools. They were about to place the tools on these poor girls.
“How dare you?”
At this moment, a soft yet firm voice shouted.
Angela walked from Fei’s side to stand in front of the girls. It was rare that someone like her who always talked softly shouted. She stopped the vicious cavaliers and helped the eight poor girls who were terrified to get up. Like a goddess who was protecting her followers, she protected the girls with her small but valiant figure.
The future queen of Chambord made the cavaliers look away; her eyes were filled with just and anger.
The cavaliers who were holding the captive tools felt guilty. Normally, they would have whipped the person who stopped them. But when this weak girl was standing in front of them, they didn’t dare to move up.
“Humph! This is not the Sword Testing Stage! King of Chambord, it is already a huge crime to be discovered with assassins of Spartax. You should be begging for his majesty’s forgiveness! How dare you further protect these assassins? Do you really want to commit treason?”
The leopard-eyed leader thought he was on the side of reason, so he shouted as he looked at Fei with a proud expression.
However, who knew that Fei didn’t even look at him! Fei only responded with a sneer. After all, Fei didn’t even think of Imperial Knight Palace as an issue.
The leader of the cavaliers was mad, but he couldn’t do anything.
A smart man won’t take the known loss. Everyone knew that the King of Chambord moved without considering the consequences; he was like a mad wolf. Since Fei could attack as soon as he was mad, all of the cavaliers of Imperial Knight Palace couldn’t defend against him. Even if the cavaliers were on the side of reason, they couldn’t do anything. Even if the Imperial Knight Palace would punish the King of Chambord afterward, the cavaliers knew that they weren’t confident in surviving the attack from this king.
“Your Highness, do you know what you are doing?” The cavalier leader had to focus on Angela. Even though he was vicious and cruel, he couldn’t make himself swear and make threats like he used to when he saw the just in the eyes of the girl. He explained patiently: “If you cover these assassins, Chambord would be wiped when Emperor Yassin gets mad.”
“They are not assassins.”
Angela shook her head. She didn’t say anything more; she just dragged the girls who were still scared back towards Fei.
“You…… you……” The leopard eyed leader was enraged.
“Leader, we made some discoveries!” At this moment, a cavalier who was still searching the campsite shouted.
With all the eyes on him, this cavalier took some items and threw them onto the ground. They were some gold and gems as well as some high-quality armors and weapons.
Fei’s pupils contracted!
He instantly knew what they were from.
They were the treasures from the underground hall of Blood-Edge. Although Chambord walked away with the most reward, Fei was sure that these items on the ground weren’t from Chambord’s share. After all, the treasures that he got were still in his storage ring.
How could these items appear in the camp of Chambord?
“Leader, I discovered these items in one tent. After I made some observations, I’m sure that they are the treasures of Blood-Edge Mercenary Group, the fourth largest mercenary group of Zenit!” The cavalier reported loudly.
“Eh? Blood-Edge was attacked by the assassins of Spartax and got wiped out. Their treasures were also taken by the assassins. How can they be here?” The leader of the cavaliers murmured as lights flashed through his eyes. He suddenly looked up and shouted: “Could it be that Chambord is connected with the assassins of Spartax? King of Chambord, what more can you say? How did these items appear in your camp?”
This shout was empowered by his warrior energy, and it could be heard from very far away.
People at other camps also were able to hear this clearly.
Instantly, a lot of people’s face changed color.
Connected with the assassins? It was a crime that no one could bear. There had been more than a hundred nobles and officials who died because of it. Anyone who was involved in this would be killed! On top of being punished, any forces who were charged with this crime would be put on the opposite of the empire. Even if the King of Chambord was powerful, he couldn’t fight with all the forces at Zenit.
“King of Chambord, I advise you to surrender! There are still some ambiguities in this matter. As long as you cooperate with Imperial Knight Palace, you might be pardoned.” After seeing the reinforcement, which was a large number of cavaliers, appear outside of the camp, the leopard-eyed leader relaxed. Therefore, he was able to restore his commanding tone.
Now, Fei was clear of what was going on.
How can there be such a coincidence?
As soon as Blood-Edge’s treasures were discovered, a ton of cavaliers of Imperial Knight Palace appeared? It was obvious that these cavaliers were ready, and this was just a big framing operation.
In order to give an explanation to the citizens, the forces involved in the operation last night blamed it on the assassins of Spartax.
Fei agreed to this explanation as well.
However, someone discovered a loophole in this explanation and tried to frame Chambord with it.
“Who could it be?”
Fei thought as a cold light flashed through his eyes.
He didn’t pay attention to the leader of the cavaliers. With all the eyes on him, He walked to the cavalier who “found” the treasures, looked at the treasures on the ground and questioned: “Tell me, who told you to bring these items into my camp?”
The cavalier’s face changed color, but he soon calmed down. This cavalier sneered back: “What are you saying? I found these items at you camp……”
Before the cavalier could finish, Fei slapped him with the back of his hand, and the cavalier flew back for more than 10 meters. He fainted as he landed, and no one knew if he was still alive.
“How dare you!”
“This king is committing treason! Arrest him!”
No one expected the King of Chambord to attack at this critical moment. After a moment of surprise, the leader of the cavaliers shouted followed by a few other shouts. The cavaliers of the Imperial Knight Palace outside of the campsite started to charge in.
Fei waved his hand and a powerful force shot out.
Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam!
The first few cavaliers who charged in were turned into blood mists along with their horses.
A vague yet gigantic totem image that was more than a hundred meters tall appeared behind Fei, and it stared down like the god of war. A series of terrifying energy waves came off of Fei’s body like the waves of the ocean. The wind created by these energy waves made the cavaliers have a hard time to stay in the same spot.
The cavaliers who weren’t yet inside the campsite didn’t dare to move forward anymore. They stopped charging and waited for the next command.
Fei sneered as he then moved his finger. A transparent crystal energy in the form of a sword dashed out of his fingertip.
The huge sword passed through the gate and drew a long line that was more than a hundred meters long and more than half a meter deep on the ground.
“Pass the Mark – Die!”
After Fei said that, the cavaliers around the mark felt like the mark was the entrance to hell. The chilling energy that came off of it made everyone feel a chill in their spines.
No one dared to look at that sword mark, and no one dared to think that the King of Chambord was kidding. After all, the blood mists were still in the air!
“You…… you are too reckless! King of Chambord! You……” The leopard-eyed leader was so frightened and shocked that his voice even changed.
“I’m not as reckless as you. Humph, how dare you frame me?” Fei said with disdain on his face. He turned around and said to Pierce, Drogba, Torres, Cech, and Oleg: “Arrest all the people who came in. Break a leg each and question them until they tell us who told them to frame Chambord!”
As Fei said that, he looked at the leopard-eyed leader and added with a cold voice: “Kill anyone who dares to resist!”
