Chapter 1409 Exalted Priest
Tang Shaoyang did not expect for the elves to take an extreme measure. He expected them to capture Dewil, but they killed him to keep his presence secret.
But still, it was stupid of them to kill Dewil. Dewil had sent the message to The Temple of Light that he already arrived. The Exalted Priest of The Temple of Light already knew his arrival. There was no point hiding him.
"Why do you kill him?" High Priest Estia was also surprised by the extreme measure. She felt like they did not need to kill Dewil as well. Now the others might look at them as a group of murdered than a group who cared for The Osligia Kingdom's future.
It would be hard to convince the others with what they did just now.
"To keep his arrival as a secret?" Levani replied with confusion, "I don't think we can convince Dewil to shut his mouth unless we kill him."
"But there's no need to keep it secret because The Exalted Priest already knew his arrival," High Priest Estia shook her head, "We just need to kill him, and that will solve our problem. But never mind, we can just say he killed Dewil. Get your job done now. I will support you."
Fifty white-armored knights appeared, surrounding Tang Shaoyang. Not just the knights, but High Priest Estia also brought a reinforcement. Another hundred elves ensured they killed Tang Shaoyang. She was prepared for this time.
'It will be tough to face Exalted Priest Gracia later if I can't convince The Osligia Kingdom. These fools almost ruined my plan to be an Exalted Priest. Let's hope I can convince The Elders with King Manasa' influence,'
That was the main reason High Priest Estia wanted to keep Goddess Lunea sealed. Her aim was to be The Exalted Priest before the seal broke. If the seal broke right now, the chance she became the Exalted Priest was zero. Goddess Lunea was fond of Gracia for a long time. And Despite her young age, Gracia was chosen to be the Exalted Priest even though Estia had been serving Goddess Lunea for the longest time..
"I would like to entertain you guys, but I prefer a smooth journey than slaughtering a whole kingdom," Tang Shaoyang discovered the main issue now. There was no need for him to kill these people. They were not worth his time, at all.
At beast, he would get thirty levels from killing them all. Levels did not worth that much for him who had capped all stats to 99-Stars Demi-God.
He used Blink and appeared between Yasi and Levani. He was after the dead body, not attacking them. After getting the body, his figure sped off to the sky. The trees shook from the impact. By the time Yasi looked to the air, the figure had already disappeared from his line of sight.
"Goddamn it!" High Priest Estia sensed the movement, but her reaction was too slow to do anything, "Why are you dozing off? Go chase him!"
Tang Shaoyang used Heavenly Stride, moving faster than his usual flying speed. The thought of killing those elves was there, but he did not want to waste his time even a second with them.
Soon, the view of the first came into his sight. He noticed the city was heavily guarded. That might be because of The High Priest Estia's influence in the Osligia Kingdom.
He went past the city. His goal was the Capital of the Osligia Kingdom where the temple was. A few minutes later, another city came into his view. But Hemlin told him that the third was where The Osligia Kingdom's capital was.
The elf's territory was quite big as it took him ten minutes from the second city to reach the capital. He noticed a massive barrier erected on the capital, enclosing the city.
Tang Shaoyang floated above the barrier, realizing that High Priest Estia's influence was bigger than he thought. That priest could mobilize The whole kingdom just to stop him. There was no reason for The Osligia Kingdom to put up the barrier when they were not under attack. That must be High Priest Estia's doing.
He put his hand on the barrier. It was a strong barrier fueled by unknown energy. He did not feel mana from the barrier, but something else.
"I wonder which one is stronger, My Chaos Energy or this unknown energy," Tang Shaoyang scanned the whole city with his Spirit Eyes. He wanted to find where the temple was before destroying the shield.
It was so easy to find where The Temple was because of how conspicuous the building was. A white building with a high tower, and he was surprised to find the temple was surrounded by the elves. That meant it was not just High Priest Estia who did not want him to meet Lunea.
"This just makes me want to destroy this whole kingdom," It annoyed him that the elves tried to stop him from fulfilling his oath.
His right hand burst out in black flame. He concentrated Chaos Energy, and it quickly melted the barrier. As he predicted, as soon as he attacked the barrier, the bell in the city rang.
But that was not enough to stop him as he melted the barrier so quickly. His figure blurred and landed right in front of the temple, between The Temple of Light's force and The Osligia Kingdom's force.
"What's the meaning of this, General Sione?" A woman in the same white cloak as High Priest Estia questioned the elf army.
"We are under—" General Sione did not finish his words as he noticed the figure appeared between The Temple's knights, "The enemy has entered the Capital! Kill him!" He pointed his spear behind Exalted Priest Gracia.
Gracia turned around and saw Tang Shaoyang. Her expression changed drastically, not expecting a monster would breach into the capital.
The creature approached her, and she took out her staff until he heard the creature speak, "I am Tang Shaoyang. Are you the Exalted Priest?"
Tang Shaoyang took off the black bracelet in his hand, "Use Detection if you don't trust me." The bracelet was the tool to ward off the Detection skill.
Exalted Priest Gracia used The Detection as Tang Shaoyang told her to. L1terary-N0v3l hosted the first appearance of this chapter at N0vel.B1n.
