James stopped the Omniscient Deity from leaving. However, the Omniscient Deity did not stop. He turned around and left the Black Dragon Palace.
James touched his chin and murmured, “What kind of sword is it?”
He had heard of Divine Sword Villa.
Some time ago, Callan had brought back Excalibur and headed to Divine Sword Villa, requesting them to help reforge the sword. However, Divine Sword Villa refused to help. Therefore, Callan fought with the owner of Divine Sword Villa.
After defeating him, Divine Sword Villa finally agreed to reforge Excalibur.
Another legendary weapon was about to be born from Divine Sword Villa. Moreover, it was a sword forged for more than a thousand years.
What kind of legendary weapon was worth being forged for more than a thousand years?
James was intrigued by the sword. On top of that, Lucjan had headed to Divine Sword Villa. Therefore, he would also need to visit them to retrieve Crucifier.
After thinking for a while, James sat down.
He looked at Thea, who had been seating aside silently throughout their conversation.
He said, “Thea, let’s head back to the Capital first. How about you stay there while I head to Divine Sword Villa to look for Lucjan? I’ll retrieve Crucifier and try to treat you.”
“I’ll listen to you.” Thea had no objections.
“This can’t wait. Let’s head out right now.”
Initially, James wanted to use this chance to purge the Southern Plains. However, with so many unexpected things popping out of the blue, he could only put the matter aside for now.
James and Thea left the Black Dragon Palace and headed to the military region.
“James, are we going back already? Weren’t we supposed to purge the Southern Plains?” Henry looked at James in the office and asked, “There are only about three months left before the election. Would we have enough time if we didn’t straighten things out here first?”
James replied with a helpless expression, “A lot of things have happened, and I can’t help it. I’ll have to head back to the Capital first.”
Henry nodded and said, “Alright. I’ll arrange a private plane right now.”
Then, he turned to make arrangements.
Soon, the private plane was ready.
James, Thea, and Henry boarded the plane back to the Capital.
A few hours later, they were back at the Capital.
Thea heaved a sigh of relief after finally returning to her house in the Capital.
“By the way…” Thea suddenly recalled something and said, “Maxine was injured and is in critical condition. You should go to the Cadens’ mansion to check up on her.”
James shook his head and said, “Bennett’s there. Things should be fine.”
He wanted to spend more time with Thea.
“I’m fine. You should go…” Thea pushed James out of the house and said, “After all, she was taken hostage and used to threaten us. She got hurt because of us. Sir Caden said her injuries did not look good. You should go check and see if you can provide any help.”
“Let’s go together, then…”
“I’ll stay home. I’d like to rest for a while.” Thea shook her head.
“Alright…” James did not want to force her.
He was indeed quite worried about Maxine, but since Thea’s condition was also bad, he was more concerned about Thea’s well-being.
“I’m heading out. I’ll be back as soon as possible.”
After bidding farewell to Thea, James left.
Outside, Henry waited in the car.
James opened the car door, hopped in, and ordered, “Head to the Cadens’ mansion.”
“Alright!” Henry started the car.
On the way, he asked, “James, I’ve heard rumors that Thea is the Celestial Sect’s leader. Is that true?”
Although Henry did not go to Mt. Thunder Pass, he had begun cultivating and was considered a martial artist. Since he followed James around, he had gotten to know a few people and would hear news from the ancient martial world.
“Yeah…” James nodded.
“W-What… Wow!” Henry exclaimed.
