Chapter 815: Rumor Is Like A Seed (Part One)
This D’Alessandro sure didn’t deserve to be a disciple of the Continental Martial Saint. Even though he was of high status, he used shameless lies and rumors to push off his crime and whitewash himself. Since he was the No.2 Disciple of Continental Martial Saint Maradona, almost everyone believed his claims. Even if Fei and Buckingham came out and stated the truth, how many people on the continent would believe them?
Except for that, Fei remembered that this despicable man was greedy over his [Immortal King’s Stone Crusher] and [The Throne of Chaos]. The greedy expression on D’Alessandro’s face was clear to Fei, and it felt like a hungry mouse was looking a big piece of cheese.
His tactics were cruel.
Fei stood before the giant window and thought carefully.
For a moment, it was tranquil inside the room, and Kane stood there in the room and didn’t dare to make any noise. While Fei was thinking, he subconsciously emitted a powerful aura that only belonged to a powerful ruler, making Kane shiver a little. He was very proud of himself, and he never imagined that he could one day be so nervous in front of a man who was more than 30 years younger than him.
After more than ten minutes, Fei slowly turned around.
“Inform all other branches of the [Letter Office] and tell them to spread the news that D’Alessandro is lying. The person who released that evil god of the Sea Tribe was him, and the King of Chambord and Buckingham were the two heroes who tried their best to stop that evil god from coming out!”
Kane was surprised that this young man in front of him would make such an order.
To be honest, he was a little hesitant at this order. Right now, the people who resided around the [Sea of Fragrance] were stirred up, and they wanted to capture the King of Chambord and Buckingham who were the two ‘criminals’. If they chose to go against the public, it was not different from pouring oil onto a burning fire. The [Letter Office] would instantly become the target for the angry crowd, and it would suffer huge losses.
Fei smiled when he saw the puzzled look on Kane’s face.
“I know what you are worried about. When spreading this information, there is no need to declare your identity. Things like rumors are like wild plants. Once you plant the seeds, they will quickly grow and mature. Just let [Old Man] manage this.”
Kane instantly blushed and thought, “What is going on with me today? I didn’t even see through such a basic concept. I acted this way in front of the real ruler of the organization, and it is bad!”
After thinking about this, he quickly nodded and accepted it.
After thinking for a while, Fei added, “Also, when spreading the information, say that the evil god of the Sea Tribe was already severely injured by the King of Chambord and King Buckingham of Leon using an ancient array at the bottom of the sea. For a short time, this evil god won’t cause any trouble for the humans!”
Kane froze for a second before asking, “This… is it true?”
“Hahahaha! Of course! Didn’t D’Alessandro say that the evil god of the Sea Tribe got released and will quickly kill the humans around the [Sea of Fragrance]? Hehehe, then, let’s see if Evil God Kluivert will show himself. By then, the smart ones will know who is lying.”
Right now, Fei had calmed down from the initial shock.
Even if the [Letter Office] spread this news, it wouldn’t instantly clear Fei and Buckingham’s reputations. However, it would plant seeds in people’s minds, and these seeds would one day be very useful.
Also, Fei was very sensitive and noticed one fundamental weakness in D’Alessandro’s story.”
After D’Alessandro escaped in a hurry, he didn’t see what happened next. Therefore, he had no idea that his master, the most powerful human on the continent, cast his shadow and injured Kluivert before taking back that god-tier combat weapon. Also, he didn’t know that Kluivert lost both of his arms and was severely injured, and that couldn’t recover in a short time and cause massacres.
Chapter 815: Rumor Is Like A Seed (Part Two)
Therefore, D’Alessandro told everyone that Kluivert was going to appear any day now when he was telling a lie.
This was the weakness.
Although it wasn’t enough to throw everyone off his story, it would make people cast doubts around his story.
Even a giant dam would collapse at the existence of a small ant hole. Therefore, even the most perfect lie would be soon revealed after a person stood up and cast doubt. By then, the truth would reappear before everyone’s eyes.
After thinking everything through, Fei calmed down a lot.
Even though this incident caused a lot of issues, it wasn’t without benefits. By using this incident to his advantage, Fei would be able to see how all the surrounding forces would react.
Since there was already a small circle forming around Fei and the Chambord Kingdom, and many people wanted to jump on the ship, Fei could use this opportunity to see how trustworthy people were and who were the ones that would jump ship at the first sight of trouble.
After stretching, Fei heaved a sigh of relief and returned to his seat, signaling Kane to continue with his reporting.
In the last ten days or so, a lot of things had happened.
Except for the two events that Kane mentioned, the war in the southern region of the Zenit Empire also caught a lot of attention.

After the initial wins, it went into another stalemate. In the beginning, Second Prince Dominguez obtained a series of victories over the Leon Empire, recovering a lot of territory of the Red Leaf Province. However, Fourth Prince Chrystal became irrational after the initial wins, and his commands were terrible. Soon, the troops that he was leading got surrounded by the enemies, and almost all the soldiers were killed. If the masters and the death squad of the Beag Family didn’t try their best to save him, this arrogant yet useless prince would have become a captive himself.
The failure of the Fourth Prince made the Second Prince the only force of Zenit in the southern region. To avoid the situation of being surrounded by enemies, he had to slow down and defend the territories that he had recaptured. Therefore, the excellent situation for Zenit got ruined by the Four Prince singlehandedly.
However, the local force in the southern region of Zenit was doing well. The resistance force led by the Byzantine Empire used the guerrilla warfare and caused a lot of headaches for the Leon Empire and other empires in the alliance.
Overall, Zenit’s first attempt at taking back its lost territories by using military force failed regretfully.
This failure caused a big shuffle of power inside the Zenit Empire.
Fourth Prince Chrystal who was arrogant yet untalented had to say goodbye to the political arena, losing the ability to fight for the throne. Also, the Beag Family who supported Fourth Prince Chrystal was greatly weakened since the [Gigantic Force Legion] which was once under its control was destroyed. Now, it was a second-tier noble family in Zenit.
The strangest thing was that even though the Zenit Empire had expanded the military through the conscription order, and it had the power to take back the southern region which belonged to it, the Royal Family and the Military Headquarters were not giving the order. It seemed like they were waiting for something.
Even after D’Alessandro, the No.2 Disciple of Continental Martial Saint Maradona, asked Zenit to hand over Imperial Martial Saint Alexander, the Royal Family and the Military Headquarters were keeping quiet; it was really strange.
“That is all the information that we have on the Zenit Empire.” Kane finished telling Fei the information in one breath. Then, he started to breathe heavily to replenish his oxygen. Since Fei paid a lot of attention to Zenit and the King of Chambord, Kane already guessed something but didn’t dare to ask.
Fei nodded after hearing all the news. Some of it was good, and some of it was bad. However, nothing was out of his expectations.
“Ah, right. That girl named Ellen Grace who led me here is not bad. Don’t you blame her for bringing me here, alright?”
