“How wise of you, Father.”
“Go. You’re already exposed. Now that the Solean martial artists have noticed you and found this place, we shouldn’t remain here for long. We will quickly leave this castle, while you will remain here and guard the place. I want you to stay calm no matter what happens. If the ninth-rank martial artists from Sol come knocking, simply feign ignorance. In any case, you must not allow them to make a move against us.”
“Understood, I will keep your words to heart.”
“Go…” Kaiden waved slightly.
Sergio did not linger for long and hurriedly left.
At the same time, James was resting in a room. After consuming the elixir Thomas gave him, his True Energy gradually recovered. However, since all of his True Energy was depleted, he needed at least a few days to completely regain his strength.
Knock! Knock! Knock!
A knock came on the door.
James stood up and answered the door.
Standing by the door, the First Blood Emperor smiled. “James, the Grand Patriarch of the Blood Race is inviting you to the apse.”
“Okay.” James nodded and returned to his room.
Holding the Primordial Dragon Blade in hand, he followed close behind the First Blood Emperor.
Before they could leave, Sky suddenly appeared out of nowhere. “Let me tag along…”
The First Blood Emperor squinted his eyes and said, “Only James is invited.”
James said with a smile, “Don’t worry, Sky, I’ll hold up my end of the bargain. Once I obtain the dragon’s. blood, I promise we will each have half. I will also tell you about the dragon’s whereabouts.”
However, Sky distrusted James. After all, he had been fooled once.
“But can I trust you, James?” He glared at James.
James said, “Well, it’s not like you have a choice now…”
The First Blood Emperor said coldly, “Out of the way.”
Sky knew he was deep within the Blood Race’s territory, so he did not dare disobey him.
He glared at the First Blood Emperor and muttered silently under his breath.
One day, I will surely get rid of you!
Then, he looked at James and threatened him, “James, I hope you keep your promise. Otherwise, don’t blame me for what happens next…”
James looked at Sky. As long as this man was still alive, he would continue to pose a threat to him. He planned to annihilate him the moment he seized an opportunity.
Though a malicious thought surfaced in his mind, he still wore a bright smile, saying, “Don’t worry, I’ll keep my promise.”
After he said that, he left alongside the First Blood Emperor.
Under the First Blood Emperor’s guidance, James arrived at the apse of the castle.
In a room in the apse..
Harland was sitting in a lotus position on the floor.
The First Blood Emperor walked in with James and greeted him respectfully, “Grand Patriarch, I’ve brought him…”
It was the first time the First Blood Emperor came here.
Harland waved slightly and said, “You’re dismissed.”
“Understood!” The First Blood Emperor turned to leave.
Harland lifted his head to look at James and pointed at an empty spot on the floor, saying. “Make yourself at home and have a seat.”
James sat in a lotus position opposite Harland.
Harland looked at James and asked, “Young man, who is your master?”
“I don’t have one… He’s already dead,” James said.
He never had a master. The only teacher he had was Spencer Blithe who had already passed on.
“How impressive… You manage to possess such strength at such a young age despite not having a master to guide you.”
