Chapter 6.2 The Emperor Said Unworthy

Qiao Xingnan, who knows how to take things as they come, continued to be cold, seemingly suppressing his anger as he raised his chin slightly.

“If the people of Arilance are as ignorant as you are, I truly feel sad for your emperor.”

After saying this, Qiao Xingnan did not give Ilir the opportunity to argue.
He seemed very angry, and the corners of his robe crossed the air as he directly turned to leave.

Befriending people was not something that could happen quickly.
However, seeing Ilir’s attitude, he may still take the initiative to befriend Zero later.

This was good.
Rather than letting the uncommunicative Zero take the initiative, he prefers to let the other side befriend them, so they can hold more control.

Ilir, who did not have time to argue, had the words stuck in his throat.
He took a deep breath and did not go after them.
Looking at the backs of the two, Ilir’s eyes roamed around.

The knights he had arranged to spy on the dark-haired man should be in the vicinity.

Soon, he saw two men coming from the corner of the brick wall.
They fell far behind Qiao Xingnan and the white-robed man.
Ilir saw this, gripped his sword, and left the place with reassurance.

“When did that white-robed man go out?”

On the other side, a brown-haired knight in silver armor quietly followed behind Qiao Xingnan.
He was a bit uneasy in his heart.
When they saw their chief following the white-robed man from afar, he almost lost his breath.

The two were ordered to watch Qiao Xingnan and the white-robed man, but they only watched Qiao Xingnan alone, not knowing when the white-robed man had run out.

The two men failed to keep an eye on the person but also happened to be caught by the chief.
Was this not bad luck? Thinking of the time to go to special training again, the brown-haired knight was inwardly shaken.

“It’s okay.
I heard Neil say that the white-robed man’s body skills are particularly powerful.
Even the chief couldn’t stop him yesterday, so he should understand us.” The other knight reassured his partner.

The brown-haired knight actually did not believe it.
His eyes were fixed on the two people he needed to watch in front of him, and he could not help but complain a little, “They can really run around.
Wouldn’t it be nice to stay in the house peacefully?”

Qiao Xingnan, who was walking ahead, knew that there were people following him but was not aware of the other party’s complaints.
But, even if he had known about the other’s rant, he would have had nothing to say.

After all, Qiao Xingnan has no choice but to do everything to survive.

He was not just simply running around either.
Every time Qiao Xingnan walked through a part of the manor, he would remember where the place led to and which road was the closest so that he could later control Zero to choose the closest and most suitable one.

Moreover, he also had to analyze which place the light shines the best on people and when it was most suitable to stand there.
These places can highlight their compelling style, so he had to know everything.

Only by paying attention to all the details can his character-building be more convincing.

[Zero, I’m sorry.
I almost put you in danger again just now.] Qiao Xingnan apologized to Zero through the spiritual thread.

If he hadn’t reacted quickly, Zero might have shattered by now.
Although the end result was good, there was no denying that Zero was in a dangerous position in the middle of it all.

Why apologize?

Under the hood, Zero looked puzzled.
His fingers moved unnoticeably, and the parts not controlled by Qiao Xingnan were still stiff and stuck.
Zero was still the same useless waste card without its master.

This was the first time he heard someone apologize to him, although he didn’t know what his master had done wrong.

[Master, no need to apologize.] Zero’s voice had always been flat, but this time actually seemed a little flustered, [Zero, no, matter.]

Once Qiao Xingnan heard it, he knew that Zero had no idea how critical his situation was just now, and he let out a deep tsk in his heart.

No more bullying honest people.

Qiao Xingnan pondered that he could go back and ask the system if he could upgrade the card or something.
If he could, he would help Zero no matter what method he used.

Thinking this way, Qiao Xingnan raised his head to look at the unfamiliar surroundings.

They had walked a long way without realizing it, a place he had never been to before.
A large lake was in front of them, surrounded by thickly-branched trees.
It seemed that a walk around the lake would lead to the pavilion where Ilir had taken Zero in the morning.

[Let’s go…] Familiarize yourself with the route to facilitate the act.

Before Qiao Xingnan could finish this sentence with Zero, he was suddenly interrupted by a scream not far away.

The source of the sound seemed to be near the center of the lake.
The screams faded, and a deliberately suppressed argument could be vaguely heard.

Qiao Xingnan frowned and led Zero over toward that side.
Just as he reached where the sound came from, Qiao Xingnan saw a group of well-trained knights appear across the lake.

They seemed to have also heard the commotion and were coming this way, and among them was Ilir wearing golden armor.

Wasn’t this a coincidence? They had just been separated briefly, and then they met again here.

Ilir, who was coming from across the lake, didn’t notice them yet.

Nonetheless, Qiao Xingnan’s eyes looked behind himself unnoticeably.
The two knights spying on him were still hiding in the corner, making it impossible for him to even watch the scene properly.

Qiao Xingnan thought so but did not give up.
He took a few steps forward with Zero.
He stood in the shade, watching the quarrel not far away with a calm and proud posture and condescending scrutiny as if it was their honor to make him stop and watch.

Under the blazing sun, the source of everything, two maids in black and white clothing and a knight in silver armor did not notice the presence of Qiao Xingnan.
They were still trapped in an endless argument.

Qiao Xingnan frowned slightly.
The man looked familiar and seemed to be the knight who had manned the ice house not long ago.

“Neil, you lied to me.” The woman had tears in her eyes.

The other woman was also in disbelief.

“Neil, you have someone else besides me?”

Neil also seemed a little embarrassed.
He didn’t expect this to happen someday, but it was his freedom to be with whomever he wanted.
These two women were just too unreasonable.

They were not at all the same as the charming lady from last night.
Thinking about this, Neil couldn’t help but lick his lips and start reminiscing about the beauty of last night.

The voice blew over with the wind, and the fine words gradually passed into Qiao Xingnan’s ears.
In short, the man had his feet in two boats and overturned.
What’s even worse was that, from Neil’s expression, he seemed to have no remorse at all.

Qiao Xingnan knew that such a scandalous affair would not be harshly criticized by most people in this era.

He looked at the three who kept arguing and glanced at Ilir and his group, who were about to arrive.
He pursed his lips and prepared to take Zero away to continue to familiarize himself with the rest of the route.

As a person who can hardly protect himself, he should not get involved in such things.

But just as Qiao Xingnan turned to leave, his sight fell on the brown-eyed woman’s body.
Now, the woman was no longer shedding tears and looked at the lake behind Neil as if her heart was dead.
Then, she slowly walked away, while the other two arguing people did not notice.

A few seconds later, a terrible thought surfaced in Qiao Xingnan’s mind, and his heart thumped.

Qiao Xingnan turned his footsteps and walked in the direction of the three people.
