Stefan could see, or rather, sense the aircraft in the sky, but that did not mean that Conlay could do the same.
At this moment, the burly man barged in through the door.
When he saw Conlay, he bowed and said, ”Young Lord, the fire phoenix royal family seems to be up to something big. They’ve deployed many fighter aircraft in our direction!”
Hearing that, Conlay glanced at Stefan.
If Stefan had not reminded him just now, he would not have known in advance that the fire phoenix royal family had started to investigate the desert oasis.
“Ferdinand, listen to my command!” Conlay’s demeanor suddenly changed.
At this moment, he exuded an indescribable vibe.
Hearing that, the burly man immediately knelt.
Conlay continued, “Evacuate the citizens in the desert oasis and the floating city. From now on, standby for battle!”
Stefan finally found out that this burly man was called Ferdinand. Moreover, the air of superiority that Conlay just displayed was obviously not achieved overnight.
Clearly, he was used to giving orders in this desert oasis.
However, Stefan had to admit that Conlay had what it took. Otherwise, he would not be able to govern this desert oasis so well. Although the mighty being’s reputation played its part, his actual strength was still important.
If Conlay did not have the ability, this desert oasis would not have ended up like this even if he had a great reputation.
At Conlay’s command, a change came over the floating city.
Conlay took Stefan to the highest point. The two of them looked around and saw a large fleet approaching not far away. There was also a carriage approaching through the air.
Stefan recognized the person in the carriage at a glance.
Who else could it be but the heavenly general?
“Conlay, the heavenly general is obviously here for me. I’ll try not to confront them to avoid implicating your desert oasis.”
Hearing that, Conlay snorted coldly, “If the fire phoenix royal family hadn’t let them in, they wouldn’t dare to barge in here so recklessly.
“Don’t worry. I’ve long wanted to show off the strength of my desert oasis. Otherwise, the fire phoenix royal family will keep looking down on me!”
While they spoke, the floating city had turned into a sky fortress. Guided missiles, artillery, and electromagnetic guns made with advanced technology were all available.
The fighter planes deployed by the fire phoenix royal family were already wiped out by the electromagnetic interference from the floating city.
Over the years, although Conlay could not have a major conflict with the fire phoenix royal family, small frictions never stopped under Conlay’s careful control. Thus, people in the desert oasis were accustomed to fighting.
Conlay took advantage of these fighting opportunities to continuously improve their technology to make this floating city more powerful.
“Criminal Stefan Clarke, listen up! If you surrender without a fight, the ancient Diana will not take action against this desert oasis. Otherwise, the whole desert oasis will be destroyed along with you!”
The heavenly general had reached the sky above the floating city in his platinum horse carriage.
When he yelled those words, he deliberately used his energy so all the people in the entire floating city could hear him clearly.
Since the heavenly general could reach that position in the ancient Diana, there must be something special about him. Josua wisely made use of the people’s need for safety to isolate Stefan.
