“Qiangan Kingdom, although I was able to obtain the Saint Ruler’s skeleton, you have found trouble with me. I no longer need to abide by our earlier agreement. Wait and see, when I have time, I will visit again to merit out fairness.” Jian Chen muttered under his breath as he floated in the air. At the same time, he felt worried about the Huang family. Although he had once helped Huang Luan, the skeleton of a Saint Ruler wasn’t beneath a Ruler Armament in rarity and value. Whether or not the patriarch of the Huang family would trouble him for the skeleton, Jian Chen didn’t know. All he knew was that the skeleton was indeed a great boon for the patriarch if he had gotten it.
However as an Imperial Protector of the Qinhuang Kingdom, Jian Chen held a certain amount of power over even the greatest of clans on the continent. Even the patriarch of the Huang family would presumably avoid overstepping his boundaries to deal with Jian Chen.
“It seems that being able to use the Chaotic Force is even more important than ever. This way, I will have a weapon to use against those of the Saint Ruler level.” Jian Chen muttered in resolute determination. After he returned, he would refine the energy within the Saint Ruler’s skeleton straight away.
Transforming into a jet of azure and violet light, Jian Chen flew off in the direction of the Gesun Kingdom before ultimately disappearing into the horizon.
At the same time in the Heavenly Eagle Kingdom, a single squadron had entered the imperial palace. All the guards had knelt on both sides as a polite gesture of welcoming.
After several days of traveling, the second prince and the prime minister had finally returned to the imperial palace of the Heavenly Eagle Kingdom.
The very moment they had entered the palace, the travel-weary second prince and prime minister instantly dismounted from their horses and walked straight for the halls to report to the king.
Notified of their arrival to the large halls for a discussion within the palace, the king had sat in his throne. On both sides, twenty armored experts stood without moving, looking more like statues than humans. Each one of them was stony-faced, but their eyes emitted a sharp contrast.
The second prince and prime minister walked into the palace. When they saw the king sitting high above upon his throne, they immediately knelt down in subservience.
“Your servant pays his respect to his Majesty!”
“Your child pays his respects to his Majesty!”
Taking the teacup offered to him by the nearby maid, the king smiled. “Let’s skip the formalities. My son, prime minister, has our proposal with the Gesun Kingdom gone smoothly?”
“Father, the Gesun Kingdom is far too insolent, not only do they see themselves as higher than everyone else, but they do not even see our Heavenly Eagle Kingdom as above them. Not only did they injure senior Georgien, we were barely able to escape from the imperial palace.” The second prince immediately told the king what had transpired in the Gesun Kingdom and had added his own details to it to make it seem even worse.
Hearing the second prince speak, the king’s smile slowly began to grow darker and darker until he looked to the prime minister and asked slowly, “Prime minister, is what my son says true? Has the Gesun Kingdom acted in such a way?”
“Your Majesty, the second prince speaks truly. The Gesun Kingdom has without a doubt placed our Heavenly Eagle Kingdom beneath them. Furthermore, Georgien was indeed injured by them and they were just about to take us in forever.” The prime minister spoke respectfully.
“What bullies they are!” The king roared angrily as his hand slapped the armrest of his throne, “Men! Call for senior Georgien.”
“Yes!” A guard immediately ran off.
Quickly, the pale-faced Georgien came running into the hall and knelt before the king. “Are you fine, Georgien?” The king asked in concern. When it came to Heaven Saint Masters, he had to make sure to treat them well.
Georgien nodded his head, “Given some time, I will heal.”
With that, the king listened to Georgien give his explanation. Although there were slight deviations to what the second prince and prime minister said, the main points were still the same. It was these main points that caused the king of the Heavenly Eagle Kingdom to take on a nasty expression.
“You there, bring a thousand year ginseng from my personal collection.” The king commanded to one of the palace maids.
“Yes, your Majesty.” The maid obeyed before leaving.
“Senior Georgien, not too long ago, I received a thousand year old ginseng. I present this to you in hopes of a speedy recovery. As for the matter with the Gesun Kingdom, this king will make sure justice is made.” When the Gesun Kingdom was mentioned, the king’s eyes flashed dangerously.
Georgien smiled, “Thank you your Majesty for your concern. However, the one called Changyang Xiangtian of the Gesun Kingdom must be treated with care. He is not only a genius among geniuses, but he wields an incredibly powerful energy that can damage the Saint Weapons of even a Heaven Saint Master. It was because of this power that I was injured.”
“Then there is even more reason to kill him. Otherwise, our Heavenly Eagle Kingdom will have a powerful threat in the future.” The king spoke.
After Georgien left, the king returned to his throne and looked down at the two subjects still kneeling before him. With a royal air befitting that of the king, he spoke, “Prime minister Che, have you made certain of the relationship between the Gesun Kingdom and the Qinhuang Kingdom?”
“Your Majesty, your servant has investigated the matter, as the king has imagined, the relationship between the two kingdoms isn’t close at all. By the time I arrived at the imperial palace, the Imperial Advisors had already left. After my talks with the Gesun Kingdom’s king, I speculate that even the king himself does not know what brought the Qinhuang Kingdom to help them.”
“Hmph, is that it?!” The Heavenly Eagle Kingdom’s king let out a smile, “It seems that our biggest worry would be that Changyang Xiangtian then. If he was able to become a Heaven Saint Master at such an age and have some sort of powerful ability to damage a Heaven Saint Master’s Saint Weapon, that cannot be let to stand. It is unfortunate that he is not from our Heavenly Eagle Kingdom. Fine, you two must be tired from your travels, go and rest up. The rest, I will take care of.”
“Yes, your Majesty!”
Half a day later, eight Heaven Saint Masters had been gathered within the depths of the imperial palace of the Heavenly Eagle Kingdom. After talking for an hour, they all left, but two additional people had joined their ranks to make a total of ten.
Two days later, the air within the imperial palace was different than before. The Black Armors continued to patrol the entire palace while the king himself strolled around it in an extremely pleasant mood. At the current moment, he was playing chess with Ye Ming; he was no longer worried about the future development of the Gesun Kingdom. That was because there was now an incredible strong mountain of a power backing up the entire kingdom.
