After Billy was taken away, the sound of whipping was heard not far away accompanied by Billy’s painful howls.
The court master turned to Philip and said, “Our court rules were created to protect our members who have just learned how to fly with the sword, but it’ll be organized collectively and then notified to all parties to restrict the airspace. It’s really inappropriate for Billy to change the rules privately. As for the rules, we’ll make some changes, so you may rest assured.”
The court master saw Philip‘s imposing manner and explained patiently.
The rule was not as bureaucratic as Philip thought, so it did not matter if they made no changes, but Philip was happy to have taught Billy a lesson.
“If there’s nothing else, I shall take my leave. I’ll visit again if there’s a chance in the future.”
Seeing that Philip was about to leave, the female sword practitioner from earlier stepped up and told the court master about Philip’s sword strike just now.
“Are you serious? Did you exaggerate at all?” the court master was shocked and asked calmly.
“Billy and the rest of us were flying in the air at that time, so we saw everything clearly. There’s no exaggeration at all,” the female practitioner said with certainty.
“Why didn’t you say so earlier?”
The court master hurried to stop Philip who was taking out his hover car and about to leave. “My friend, please hold on!”
“Anything else?” Philip wondered in the car.
The court master in yellow said, “It‘s almost noon, and the kitchen has prepared some food. Why don’t you stay for lunch with us?”
Philip had been eating in the wild recently, which was not a good experience for him.
Seeing the court master with sincerity all over his face, Philip said, “Alright, please lead the way.”
“My name is Chase Nunez. May I know your name?” the court master said while leading the way.
The court master was obviously taken aback.
Soon, Chase led Philip to the guest house of Lily Sword Court, which looked quite luxurious. After a while, several old men walked in. Judging from the sword intent exuding from them, they were all expert sword practitioners.
“Philip, we know that you’re wanted by the White Marsh royal family.”
Chase said as he took a bite of his food.
Philip twitched his brows slightly and said calmly, “Oh? What will you do to me, then?”
Chase laughed and said, “We have nothing to do with the White Marsh royal family, but since we’re on their territory, we have to act the part. We won’t report your whereabouts to them, so you can rest assured.”
Philip laughed pretentiously and said, “I’m relieved to hear that.”
Chase continued, “With your mighty powers, I wonder if you’d be interested in being a guest elder in our sword court? We won’t restrict your movements.”
“What are the benefits?” Philip asked doubtfully.
“We have close contacts with several factions and alliances. You don’t have to worry about your whereabouts being revealed, and you can still be regarded as a guest of honor. What do you think?”
Philip was quite moved by the conditions put forward by Chase. However, he said unhurriedly, “I’ll give you an answer after this meal, Court Master.”
“Yes, you should think it over carefully, Philip.”
After a while, the court master suddenly said, “I wonder if you’re going to the First Continent to participate in the Heroes Conference?”
Seeing Philip’s puzzlement, he explained, “The Heroes Conference is held every five years, and the next session will be in less than half a year. At that time, young heroes from the entire continent will gather there…”
“I’m not interested,” Philip replied.
