Chapter 6.1: The Emperor Said Unworthy
“Yes, Your Excellency.”
Ilir’s hand pressed on the hilt of his sword and nodded.
His eyes kept wandering from the man’s face and the clothes that looked so expensive.
Then, his eyebrows furrowed.
Where exactly did this man’s clothes come from?
The man came to the manor a few days wearing only rags from beginning to end.
Could the white-robed man, Zero, have brought him these clothes?
What kind of existence was this pair of “master and servant” who seemed like liars to have such gorgeous and precious clothes?
Ilir looked at the white robe on Zero’s body.
The white robe and hood style was simple, but the material seemed softer than the moonlight and highly precious.
The clothes of the black-haired man were more dazzling than Zero’s.
The golden patterns along the edges were more than enough to make people unable to move their eyes, far from the clothes a crook can get.
Ilir frowned, and his heart was more than a little hesitant and cautious.
However, the perception that Qiao Xingnan was a liar was too deep-rooted in his mind.
So, finally, he could only press his suspicions for the time being.
The black-haired man seemed to only uphold courtesy in greeting Ilir and stopped caring when he got a response from the other man.
He turned his head to look at Zero next to him and haughtily and coldly said, “Is there any?”
The white-robed man stepped closer, and his hoarse voice seemed disturbed: “Emperor, there is no Tianming.”
Qiao Xingnan’s cold golden eyes were slightly surprised.
His tone carried a hint of disbelief, “This country doesn’t even have Tianming?”
The white-robed man became even more guilty.
His hood lowered, and he looked a bit downcast, “Emperor has been wronged.”
Qiao Xingnan gently shook his head and murmured as if to himself, “It’s not like my country after all……”
After all, it is not as powerful as my country.
Obviously, this liar only said half a sentence, but it was as if Ilir could hear the man’s unfinished words.
There was indeed no Tianming in Arilance, but Ilir could not accept a person who may be a “liar” speaking condescendingly about his country.
“Your Excellency, with all due respect, if the Sea race can really produce Tianming, it will be in their domain.
But, so far, I have never heard of the Sea race with a proud nature willing to enter the human empire.”
Moreover, no one knows whether the Sea race can really cultivate Tianming, and the existence of Tianming might be mere fiction.
The black-haired man glanced at him.
His golden eyes were a bit cold, and his voice had a hint of displeasure, “You’re questioning me?”
“It was not a question, just a doubt as to why the Sea race would submit to you.” Ilir took a step back, not wanting to appear aggressive in front of the white-robed man over something like this.
He needed to find more tangible evidence to expose this liar’s lies.
The Sea people certainly did not submit to him.
Qiao Xingnan was just revealing the power of his country without a trace, deepening Ilir’s impression and incidentally laying out a script for the cards he hadn’t drawn yet.
Last night, Qiao Xingnan learned the general talent and skills of each type of card through the pictures sent by the system.
The Sea race was indeed able to produce the scarce Tianming.
Even if Ilir went to check, he would not be wrong.
A qualified screenwriter would never make up a bug that could be poked at will.
The foreign races are arrogant and powerful by nature.
They are cooped up in their respective territories and do not interfere with humans.
The information about the foreign races in the Arilance Empire has been lost because it has been too long ago, which is why Ilir does not know about Tianming.
Among all the foreign races in this continent, only two branches of the Wood race with mild and soft temperaments have defected to Arilance, the first of the five great powers.
How should a country’s power and mystery be expressed?
That is, the powerful being who does not want to submit to your country and even loathes humans but was willing to bow down to our emperor and willingly offer rare treasures only for the emperor to taste.
Though this matter is only talk.
But who made him a liar who was now fighting for his life? Of course, it will be bigger and bigger.
After seeing the “powerful” Zero, even if the other party knows that they are talking big, there will be some scruples inside.
What Qiao Xingnan wanted were mystery and fear.
His eyes fell on Ilir, and with a hint of arrogance on his delicate face, he whispered to the white-robed man, “Zero, see? We really have seen many shallow people this time.”
The white-robed man’s face was covered.
Ilir could not see his expression but could see the other man’s hood move up and down, “I have seen.”
This was not the first time Ilir had heard the other side say he was ill-informed.
A flash of harshness passed through his brown-black eyes, and then it was drowned in a deep gaze.
“Your Excellency has seen a lot of things, so why come to our poor place? Does your Excellency not know that guests follow their hosts1?”
Ilir would not easily believe Qiao Xingnan’s words.
His eyes stared straight at the dark-haired man as if he wanted to see clearly, the rotten and foul-smelling soul under this exquisite appearance.
This statement seemed to have poked the black-haired man’s sore spot.
His expression suddenly dropped and looked like dark clouds.
Ilir was stunned.
A white figure suddenly flashed in front of him, and when he returned to his senses, Zero was already standing before him.
The shadow of the hood covered the other’s face, making his whole person look extraordinarily gloomy.
The white-robed man raised his head slightly.
Ilir’s vision shifted, and it seemed that, at that moment, he saw the other party’s ancient black eyes without any emotion, only a boundless chill.
“The emperor said, you don’t deserve to know.”
Ilir felt a little strange for a moment.
The black-haired man obviously did not say anything.
How did the white-robed man know?
But then Ilir had no time to think, he subconsciously went to attack the sudden appearance of the white-robed man, but his fist did not have time to swing to the other side.
The white-robed man was like a sword back to the sheath and quickly retreated behind the black-haired man as if a loyal shadow quietly standing there.
This person was definitely strong.
Ilir was once again sure that even his big brother would have a momentary crack, but this person didn’t.
Ilir’s eyes flashed with a hint of fire.
And he did not know that at this moment, Qiao Xingnan’s hand behind his back was lightly tapping.
His face was cold and solemn, but his heart was sweating for himself.
He saw clearly that it was so close that the other’s hand was going to grab Zero, so close that the fact that Zero was not strong at all was about to be revealed.
Wealth and power are not obtained without taking risks.
Qiao Xingnan’s face was cold, and his golden eyes swept over Ilir.
Seeing the other party’s expression, he understood it in his heart.
Ilir was very concerned about Zero.
Qiao Xingnan understood the other side well.
Just as in his previous life when he was a small screenwriter who was not seen, he suddenly saw a big screenwriter who was particularly famous, and he could not help but pay attention and learn from the other side.
Although Zero was not really strong, Illir sees nothing wrong with Zero because he puts up a good front.
This was good news for them for the time being.
A Chinese idiom which means that the guest acts according to the convenience or arrangement of the host.
It also means to do as the Romans do.
