“St. Anne’s Church has no grievances with martial artists of Sol. What do you mean by this?”
“Are you sure there are no grievances?” James smirked, and his face darkened.
He said coldly, “Then, let me ask you, was a pair of mother and daughter from Sol brought here two months ago?”
The Archbishop’s face immediately changed.
His expression gave James the answer he needed. He was sure that Delilah and her mother had been brought to the church.
Suddenly, a potent energy erupted from him. With a flash, he appeared in front of the Archbishop instantly.
He was fast, and before the Archbishop could react, a long sword was already pressed against his neck.
James had drawn his sword and pressed it on the Archbishop’s neck.
“Don’t say I didn’t give you a chance to live. I’ll ask questions, and you’ll answer, understand? If your answers don’t satisfy me, then don’t blame me for being merciless,” James threatened coldly.
Fear arose in the Archbishop’s heart.
The Archbishop was a strong man and was ranked thirty-second in the Global Elysian Ranking.
The Elysian Ranking was the powerhouses’ leaderboard in the world. Since he was ranked thirty-two on the Global Elysian Ranking, it meant only thirty-two could defeat him. However, faced with this ancient martial artist from Sol, he did not want to fight back.
If the ancient martial artists from Sol intended to kill him, he would already be a corpse.
Beads of sweat formed on his forehead.
Soon, sweat rolled down his face and drenched his golden robe. He took a deep breath and forced himself to calm down.
“W-What do you want to ask?”
He desperately tried to calm himself down, but his teeth trembled as he spoke, and he stuttered through his words.
“Was a pair of mother and daughter sent here two months ago?”
“Yes,” The Archbishop replied honestly.
James took out Delilah’s photo and asked, “Is this one of them?”
James shouted coldly, “Where is she right now?!”
“I don’t know…”
A terrifying energy erupted from James’ body.
Affected by the energy, the Archbishop had difficulty breathing, and his face turned red as if he was about to suffocate.
“I really have no idea…” The Archbishop said with difficulty, “They were indeed brought here but were taken away after a few days.”
“Who took them, where were they taken, and who brought them here?” James calmly asked a few questions at once.
“I-It’s…” The Archbishop hesitated.
At that moment, he felt the sword pressing against his neck, and blood seeped from his skin.
He panicked and replied frantically, “D-Don’t kill me! I’ll tell you! I’ll tell you!”
James glared at him. Beads of sweat continued to roll down his forehead.
“I don’t know who captured them and where they were taken, but I know the people who brought them here were from the Polaris Sect…”
James asked again, “What’s the origin of Polaris Sect?”
“H-How do I explain this to you? The Polaris Sect has been around for thousands of years, and I’m not certain of its origin. However, the Polaris Sect’s leader is ranked third on the Elysian Ranking…”
“Elysian Ranking?” James was stunned.
What is that?
It was the first time he had heard of an Elysian Ranking.
The Archbishop explained, “The Elysian Ranking is the leaderboard of powerful people from all over the world, excluding ancient martial artists of Sol.
