Meanwhile, in a palace located on the highest point of Encanta Island, Terrell was seated on the throne that he had inherited after Diego’s death.
Although his cultivation level was only the Top Level of Golden Core, it was the highest among the inhabitants of the island.
Top Level Golden Core was equivalent to Top Level Martial Arts Grandmaster in the martial arts world, which was lower than Martial Arts Marquis. However, spiritual energy cultivators of his level were perfectly capable of standing up to those of the Martial Arts Marquis stage.
“Grand Elder, could you investigate that strange phenomenon? I want to know the cause of that spiritual energy fog,” Terrell asked the Grand Elder standing next to him.
“The two men I sent to investigate have yet to return, and I haven’t heard from them either. I’m guessing they ran into some trouble, King Duncan,” the Grand Elder replied softly.
Terrell slammed his fist on the armrest of his throne. “What? Who dares assault our palace guards? This is punishable by death!”
“I don’t think it was the doing of Encanta Island’s inhabitants. They were most probably killed by outsiders,” the Grand Elder explained.
“We rarely get into any conflict with the outside world. The tourists who drop by for short trips are practically the only outsiders we come into contact with. I want you to personally investigate this incident!” Terrell ordered with a stern expression.
“Understood.” The Grand Elder nodded and left to carry out his task.
It wasn’t long before he arrived at the courtyard where Jagoan and the others were staying at.
The Grand Elder frowned the moment he saw the bodies of the two palace guards.
“How dare they kill our palace guards?!” the Grand Elder exclaimed furiously as he charged into the courtyard.
Jagoan and Jagoan had left a while ago, but Jagoan made sure to cast a defensive arcane array before leaving. That was his way of ensuring Colin would not be disturbed while cultivating.
A white light appeared when the Grand Elder led his men into the courtyard. The next thing they knew, a terrifyingly powerful force sent them all flying out of there.
“What the… They set up an arcane array?” The Grand Elder was shocked.
I’m a Golden Core fighter, and yet, this person’s arcane array was able to send me flying?
Whoever set this arcane array up must be very powerful!
With that in mind, the Grand Elder whipped out his magic sword and slashed at the arcane array.
He was trying to break the arcane array through brute force.
The arcane array struck back with even greater force, knocking the Grand Elder’s magic sword out of his hand and sending him flying backward.
“That’s so powerful…” The Grand Elder’s eyes went wide with disbelief.
Jagoan, who was having a meal at a hotel, frowned worriedly all of a sudden. “Oh, no…”
“What’s wrong?” Jagoan asked.
“Someone is trying to break through the arcane array!” Jagoan replied before leaving the hotel in a hurry.
“Hey! Wait for me!” Jagoan called out to him, but Jagoan had already disappeared from sight.
Jagoan then shifted his gaze back toward the dishes on the table. It would be a waste to throw all of this food away!
“Waiter! Could we have our food to go?”
Soon, Jagoan was running after Jagoan with a box of leftover food in hand.
Jagoan saw a huge group of people surrounding the courtyard by the time he got back.
One of them was a middle-aged man with a magic sword in his hand and a solemn look on his face.
Jagoan stepped forward and asked the middle-aged man, “Who are you people? Why do you guys have this place surrounded?”
The middle-aged man eyed Jagoan from head to toe before replying angrily, “I am the Grand Elder of the palace here on Encanta Island! We discovered two dead bodies of our palace guards here, so I suspect that you guys are the ones who killed them! You are to come with us to assist with the investigation!”
“The Grand Elder?” As Jagoan glanced at the middle-aged man and the other palace guards, he realized they were all of low cultivation levels.
The Grand Elder was only in the third stage of Golden Core, and the palace guards were mostly Martial Arts Grandmasters or lower.
“I didn’t kill your palace guards. Unless you have evidence to back up your accusations, you’d better leave right now! You guys are not welcome here!” Jagoan continued with a gloomy expression.
