Valentina’s and Conlay’s outrageous behavior had certainly caught the attention of the fire phoenix royal family.
Although this method was conspicuous, to Valentina and Conlay’s surprise, not only did the fire phoenix royal family not behave differently, but they even opened the door and allowed them to enter the fire phoenix royal family’s imperial city.
All the members of the fire phoenix royal family simply looked at Valentina and Conlay.
Along the way, Valentina was poised to fight and did not expect this situation at all.
Entering the imperial city again and looking at the banners of the fire phoenix royal family, Conlay sighed. It had been a long time since he was last back in the imperial city.
At first, he planned to make a big fuss with Valentina here, but seeing the familiar streets, buildings, and scenery, he could no longer arouse such emotions. This was his home, and he was the ninth prince.
The streets were full of people from the fire phoenix royal family’s battalion. Judging from this situation, they seemed to be waiting to welcome some important people.
Obviously, they were not waiting for Valentina and Conlay. Valentina even noticed adoration and worship on these people’s faces.
For the fire phoenix royal family, it seemed that they not only worshipped the person they were waiting for, but their belief was also rooted in them.
Pulling Conlay aside, Valentina asked, “Why are the people from the fire phoenix royal family turning a blind eye to us?”
In the last battle with the fire phoenix royal family, even Valentina did not know how many members of the fire phoenix royal family died.
By right, the other party should be waiting to tear Valentina apart for this grudge.
Conlay pursed his lips at Valentina’s question.
“If I’m not mistaken, this should be the Great Preceptor’s handiwork…”
Conlay stared in the direction of the imperial city gates from a distance.
“The Great Preceptor?” Valentina frowned.
He had never heard of a great preceptor in the fire phoenix royal family.
At this moment, drums sounded in the direction of the city gates.
Conlay said, “The fire phoenix royal family is divided into many factions. The fire phoenix general leads one of them, while the Great Preceptor leads another. The two are deadly rivals.”
Conlay had more to say. Although this matter seemed to be a confrontation between the fire phoenix general and the Great Preceptor, it was actually a confrontation between several princes of the fire phoenix royal family.
Excluding Conlay, several princes supported the fire phoenix general while the rest belonged to the Great Preceptor’s faction.
As for the emperor of the fire phoenix royal family, he was nothing but a puppet.
Finally, the Great Preceptor appeared amid everyone’s cheers.
He stood on a chariot with flaming patterns. He was dressed in a luxurious robe with a purple gold crown on his head, looking solemn and sacred.
As the chariot passed by, almost all members of the fire phoenix royal family shouted, “The Great Preceptor! The Great Preceptor!”
Valentina asked, “Are you saying that since we killed the fire phoenix general on the Great Preceptor’s behalf, that’s why they’re not doing anything to us?”
