Chapter 529: An Accident

Sponsored Content

Out of the three, Batistuta was the most nervous.

This righteous elder was looking at Fei as if he was a young man who proposed to the girl he loved. His ‘passionate’ and ‘steamy’ stares were enough to melt iron.

To him, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

A few days ago, the former Bishop of Black-Cloth Shrine got a hint from the gods when he was praying, and he predicted that Jessie was going to encounter a huge trouble during this mission. Batistuta was worried that the most talented genius Black-Cloth Shrine ever got after the traitor Platini incident might die, so he rushed to Dual-Flags City as the Right Deacon of Black-Cloth Shrine.

When he got to the church in Dual-Flags City, both Jessie and Alan who were greatly injured were sent back. He was infuriated that someone tried to kill Jessie, and he used a portion of his life energy to heal Jessie. Afterward, he learned from Jessie that the King of Chambord, Alexander, was a [God’s Favorite Child] and had golden Holy Power.

This news shocked Batistuta.

For many years now, Batistuta’s only responsibility was to travel across the northern region of the continent, find a [God’s Favorite Child], and restore Black-Cloth Shrine’s prestige and honor.

According to the traditions and customs of the Holy Church, only the shrines with [God’s Favorite Children] were loved and cared for by the gods. Therefore, once Black-Cloth Shrine got its own [God’s Favorite Child], they would go back and become one of the main shrines in the Holy Church. They would then be able to push their [God’s Favorite Child] forward and potentially make them into the Pope, gaining the chance of restoring the glory that Black-Cloth Shrine once had.

Unfortunately, in the last 100 years, Batistuta wasn’t successful.

Of course, he was able to make some progress.

There were at least three times.

He was able to find three [God’s Favorite Children], but the endings were the same.

Two of the people were lured and taken by other shrines who were closely monitoring Batistuta’s actions. By giving more promises and more benefits, other shrines robbed those two [God’s Favorite Children] away and destroyed Batistuta’s hope.

It was a known fact that Black-Cloth Shrine had fallen. Its power and influence were a lot inferior compared with other more prominent shrines.

The last [God’s Favorite Child] Batistuta found was a six years old boy from 33 years ago. Due to the deep bond between him and Batistuta, this boy rejected invitations from all other shrines and decided on joining Black-Cloth Shrine. However, he died mysteriously on the way back to the headquarter of Black-Cloth Shrine.

It was clear that someone assassinated this [God’s Favorite Child] who wasn’t even mature yet.

Batistuta was enraged and caused a lot of trouble in the northern region.

However, there wasn’t much that he could do other than that.

Black-Cloth Shrine and the other shrines knew that all of this happened because Pope Blatter was still worried about Black-Cloth Shrine and was monitoring it in secret. He was afraid that his former mortal enemy would get breathing room and revive.

If Black-Cloth Shrine didn’t have a glorious history, didn’t have a large believer base, and didn’t create creed and beliefs that significantly affected the Holy Church as a whole, it would have been wiped out a long time ago.

For all these years, even though Batistuta was desperate and mad, he didn’t give up hope.

Like a convicted criminal who was looking for a way to redeem himself, this elder has been looking for opportunities crazily.

Therefore, after he heard that Fei was a [God’s Favorite Child], he had been planning.

In the last three days, he locked himself in a small room and used all of his connections and networks to get information on Fei. From how the King was born an idiot to how revealed his strength during the defense of Chambord to how he became a leading character in the young generation of warriors in Zenit……

After Batistuta connected the dots and made a series of hypothesis, he arrived at a conclusion that was completely opposite to other shrines’ estimations!

He thought that the King of Chambord hadn’t joined any shrine yet!

He was shocked by his conclusion himself.

Since almost every single shrine had their own [God’s Favorite Children], and they would be sent to complete a series of missions around the continent. Due to their potential competitive stances, most shrines would keep the information and identity about their [God’s Favorite Children] a secret. Therefore, a lot of shrines thought that the King of Chambord was the [God’s Favorite Child] of a big influential shrine.

They didn’t do too much investigate on Fei. After all, investigating other shrines’ [God’s Favorite Children] was frowned upon in the Holy Church.

Even enough Batistuta came up with this conclusion, he wasn’t too sure about it himself. It was more accurate to say that he came to this conclusion based on his instinct rather than the information he collected.

To him, even if there was only a sliver of hope, he had to give it a shot. After all, every single opportunity was meaning to Black-Cloth Shrine.

For a moment, everyone in the building was looking at Fei; they were all waiting for his answers.

After experiencing the initial shock, Fei calmed down and started to think about this incident logically.

Fei had almost never considered joining the Holy Church. First of all, it was impossible for him to ditch the Chambord Kingdom; he had formed a deep bond with the people of Chambord. Second of all, becoming the [God’s Favorite Child] of Black-Cloth Shrine that had fallen was essentially getting another massive load of responsibilities. Fei never liked taking on more work.

Making Chambord stronger alone was giving the King a headache. Making a shrine in the Holy Church stronger?

To Fei who dreamed of chilling and enjoying life, it was a waste of energy.

However, Fei didn’t instantly reject the invitation; he was considering the pros and cons of it.

Like an invisible hand, Fei felt like fate was controlling everything in secrecy. Fei had an ominous feeling about the Holy Church. He felt like he and the Holy Church would collide in the future. What happened with Angela and Balesi made Fei highly aware; he knew that it wouldn’t be a unique case.

Fei had read a lot of books on the history and the creed of the Holy Church, and he knew what a Purest Crystal Soul meant to the establishment. It was even rarer than [God’s Favorite Child].

Although Fei had instantly killed Balesi and delay the time, he knew that more people would come and ‘invite’ Angela. By then, Fei would have to face people who were numerous times more powerful than Balesi.

As Fei was thinking, a Bylaw Enforcement Officer rushed into the building and whispered something into Fei’s ear in a hurry.

“What! What a reckless fool! He wants to die!” Fei shouted angrily.

Bam!

Fei smashed the stone table in front of him, and it turned into a pile of stone dust.

“What happened? Why is the King of Chambord so mad?” the three people of the Holy Church thought. They didn’t know what was going on.

“If you three are interested, come with me!” Fei said before dashing out the building like a flash of light.

Batistuta, Jessie, and Alan looked at each other and were all curious.

They were able to tell that the King’s attitude changed and was looking at them with hostility. It was clear that what happened was related to the Holy Church. Therefore, they didn’t dare to hesitate and followed behind Fei.

They were heading toward the military camp.

……

……

“Hahahaha! You b*tches! These three creatures are the Godly Creatures that were nurtured by our Holy Church! You thieves stole them! How dare you try to lie to me? Hehe, arrest them! These women are probably tricked by evil entities to do this evil deed. Send them into the Choir and let the people there punish them!”

An arrogant and dominating voice sounded, and it came out of a mid-aged priest’s mouth. At the moment, this priest was wearing a red and black stripped robe.

Two groups of people were in a stand-off in front of the military camp of Chambord.
