To Four Thousand Years Later - Chapter 250
Vol 3 Chapter 38 Two salesmen, come to Xinhuali
The rain outside still didn’t stop.
A raging flame rose from the fireplace in the hall, and the air in the castle became increasingly humid and stuffy. People’s moods gradually became irritable because of the sky, and the lamenters of the priests held each other’s arms, complaining that the journey was difficult and dangerous. What a bunch of trash.
The silent sigher of Archbishop Leo. Two of the other three archbishops at his level had already left. Of course, they didn’t go too far, they were just taken to the adjacent room by Du Juanhou’s youngest daughter or a maid. As for the other archbishop, he kept a straight face. Leading the band around, picking out every note the band misplays with an unhappy face. He seemed to be very dissatisfied with the behavior of “disrespecting biography and disrespecting Solomon” by playing the wrong sacred music, and his words of threatening to put him in jail were full of hints. His hair was almost bald and clean, and his face was thin. He also wears crystal glasses—this is not cheap. Archbishop Leo greeted him with a smile and slipped out.
He looked around, pulled a young maid, and showed a simple and honest smile.
“Ah, then, how do I get to the toilet?”
Go straight up the stairs to the right.
Originally, at the moment she was pulled, her body tensed instantly. There was a look of panic and surprise on his face. But after Leo asked, she also showed a bit of a female pine expression while feeling emotional. Leo saw all this in his eyes, but said nothing. He just shrugged his shoulders silently, turned and walked towards the stairs. According to the address on the note, he went to the agreed room.
Should I follow the law? Could this be Adrian’s trap? Is someone trying to kill me?
Is it possible that Marquis Du Juan intends to forcibly achieve a certain goal, and he did not hesitate to kidnap an archbishop for this? Why me if possible? Many thoughts arose in Leo’s mind. Then one by one was quickly rejected. But his footsteps are still advancing steadily, and no one passing by can see anything unnatural. He made up his mind.
The person who wrote the note is obviously a smart person. If he wrote something seductive and suspicious such as “Do you want to be the Pope” or “Do you want to know the truth” on the note, he would worry whether it was Adrian’s or not? By design.
But on the note he received, there was no “purpose”. This means that his actions this time are very flexible. Even if he pushed away and found that the people sitting inside were Du Juanhou and Adrian Shilio, he would not panic and be overwhelmed, but could walk in confidently and start the talk show. Leo slowed down slightly, looking back and forth at himself in a natural manner.
The cloud was fine—or he picked the timing just right, when no one came to the bathroom. This way he doesn’t have to hide in the toilet before coming out. So Leo knocked on the door, and the door of the room i opened from the inside immediately. Leo raised his vigilance a little. Then he walked in slowly.
To his surprise, there was only one person in the room. Leo had guessed on the way that there might be various situations in this room. But he really didn’t expect that the mysterious person who had spent so much effort just to find him was actually just a twenty-year-old woman with a high ponytail of deep red and blue-black pupils like flames. Her face was long and thin, like that of a she-wolf, and her eyes were reminiscent of an eagle.
Let Leo be on guard. It was the two extremely beautiful red-edged scimitars on her waist, and the short red bow behind her back. But the disharmony is that there is a bow behind her but no arrows.
Celtic huntress? Leo was slightly disappointed.
He also thought that it would be some nobleman who was looking for him, such as the Reinhardt who was about to be taken away by the Pope, or the contact person sent by Solomon I.
-You’re right, Fatty Leo. The red-haired woman suddenly said softly: “It is indeed Reinhardt and His Majesty who are looking for you. But you should know that Reinhardt is talking to the bait. It is not easy to remove your suspicion. thing.
Leo didn’t quite understand the second half of her words. But the fear of being read by others made Leo’s pupils shrink slightly every day.
But he just showed a confused expression and scratched his head: “Ah? No, I just want to ask where the toilet is.
“Nice vigilance, boy. But it means nothing to me. Look at this.”
The woman smiled slightly, and a scorching golden radiance suddenly radiated from her blue-black pupils. Archbishop Leo immediately widened his eyes and opened his mouth unconsciously.
He recognized the light
That is exactly the same as Adrian Shi, even more blazing and dazzling!
“What the **** is this?” Leo’s expression became serious.
“This is the power of the soul, the radiance that blooms when the heart is burned.
The next moment, all the items in the room started to burn at the same time. Leo immediately squinted his eyes due to the overwhelming heat, and awkwardly covered his face with his fat hands.
But the flame suddenly disappeared within two or three seconds. Leo opened his eyes tremblingly and looked, and saw that all the old and dirty things in the room had become new, as if the flame only burned away the concept of “old days”. With a shudder, he realized who it was that was standing in front of him.
Is that a demigod? Or a demon?
She might even be more powerful than the Pope anyway. But for such a person, she respectfully called Solomon I “Your Majesty”. Archbishop Leo fell silent, put his arms down and looked at her quietly.
She smiled contentedly.
“You see. It is necessary to show strength,” she calmly patted Leo on the shoulder, led him to sit inside, and then continued, “Let me introduce myself, my name is Phoenix.”
“Ah, not bad. You’ve heard the name before!”
Phoenix laughed and said: “But that’s all in the past. Today, I am one of King Solomon’s seventy-two familiars. Leo’s face was pale from time to time, although it was also white at first: “What do you want to do? ? Why did you come to me? “Solomon’s familiar will of course serve King Solomon.
Phoenix smiled slightly, his expression became serious: “Besides that, I have another body” – have you ever heard of the Anglican Church? ”
“Holy Sons Guild?” Leo blurted out. He must have heard of it. Rather, almost everyone has heard the name of that organization when they were young. Legend has it that there is a mysterious organization with a history of nearly two thousand years, and their leaders have not changed since the very beginning. Anyone who tries to impersonate them will die suddenly within a month, proving their existence but otherwise, they seem to be doing nothing.
It is said that the leader of the Guild of the Firstborn has mastered the highest secret technique of King Solomon, possessed infinite life and wisdom, and inherited all the wealth of King Solomon.
Of course, Leo did not believe such rumors. In his view, the logic is very simple – if someone really has infinite life and wisdom, then he should have ruled the world long ago. There is no need to hide at all.
But before, the miraculous operation of the fire to clean the world broke the worldview of Archbishop Leo. There are even some people who give false life to the flames, making them temporarily become human, but Leo thinks that is nothing If you don’t want to use fire, wouldn’t it be better to prepare torches directly? Those Zoroastrians with strong divine skills don’t need to go to battle to kill the enemy at all. However, Leo has never seen any flame that can burn old things into new ones, burn bad things into good ones, Burn dirty things into clean ones without harming the items themselves. This is a miracle. It could even be called a miracle.
“One of the three chiefs.” Phoenix continued, “You can also call me Ms. Vermilion.
She said, put her hand on Leo’s head, and said softly: “You have the potential to awaken psionic power, just like Adrian. That’s why I came to invite you to join us—what’s your opinion? ”
I know so much, may I not join you guys? ”
“Of course it is possible. In that case, I will burn your memory of this period.
Phoenix said seriously: That means we are not from the same path, and we are no longer brothers and sisters of His Majesty. But I will still respect your opinion at the moment. Looking at the serious Phoenix, Leo gradually fell silent.
He also suppressed the naive smile on his face, and said in the same serious way: Then I will join.
Alright,” Phoenix replied bluntly, “Then we are all brothers and sisters of His Majesty, and I will take you to a holy ceremony in July this year to formally join us. “Is it that simple?” Leo said in amazement: “Don’t you need to swear or cast a spell to express loyalty?” Phoenix just smiled quietly: “No. Wait until you know us better , you will know that in this world, we are the only friends who can communicate with you normally “No one will betray, and no one can betray. You have to know, I’m just the weakest of the Taoists. “Phoenix laughed and gestured: “But I can burn the fat on your body. Then you’ll be Skinny’ Leo. As for now, let me tell you about Lord Bai’s plan first, “Listen well, this can save your life.
The corners of her mouth turned up, revealing a cruel smile that made one’s heart chill.
