The King of Special Warfare

Chapter 490 - The Demon in Heart (I)

Chapter 490 The Demon in Heart (I) The Caesar Hotel, now in ruins, had become extremely quiet. With the roars temporarily disappearing, the whole city seemed to be left with messy rain and hurried footsteps. KingTong stood in place, staring coldly at the army of Wulan State in front of her. The domain belonging to the Invincible Realm expert shrank smoothly yet extremely swiftly in front of her. The domain rolled up the rain in the air. The rain continued to burst above her, turning into sword intent. The sword intent fell to the ground, forming crushed ice. The cold Recchi City was getting colder and colder, as if it were in late winter. The elites of the Shadow Throne began to assemble rapidly towards KingTong. The smell of blood in the ruins had been washed away by the rain. More and more elites gathered behind KingTong. A trace of almost crazy killing intent and fury continued to spread behind KingTong. That was the fury of the entire Shadow Throne! The unending fury was raging, seeming to burn the entire Recchi City. The Shadow Throne was besieged by the army, bombarded by the missiles, and shot by the fighters. Everything Wulan State did to the Shadow Throne was incomparably determined and cruel. From beginning to end, everything the army did was aimed to exterminate everyone. There were no tentative moves. From the beginning, the military resorted to the most horrific tactics. The most direct course of action had the greatest effect. Under the most massive artillery barrage, the elite of the Shadow Throne in the Caesar Hotel suffered hefty losses in an instant. But it also wholly infuriated the entire Shadow Throne. More and more elites gathered behind KingTong. The intense killing intent seemed to freeze the whole night sky. The troops in the front row of the army of Wulan State were slightly restless. KingTong, who had been silent, suddenly said, “Let Reeker come out to meet me.” Her voice was neither soft nor sharp, and her volume was neither high nor low, but her magnetic voice resounded through the spot instantly. The army of Wulan State was silent. KingTong narrowed her eyes and raised the corner of her mouth, with a disdainful look. Her appearance and figure were extremely enchanting. On weekdays, there was no deliberate charm about her. But at this moment, she stood there with a haughty face and had a haunting charm about her. “I know your prime minister is afraid to come out. I knew from the day the Snowdance Corps entered Recchi City that your prime minister was a dud.” KingTong stared at the army in front of her and said in a cold and arrogant tone, “I want to meet your commander.” She was met with the same silence. KingTong’s eyes were cold and furious, but she showed great patience, waiting for a response from the other side without saying a word. In the silence that lasted neither short nor long, she calmly shifted her gaze and looked around. Many people in the Dark World could see the truth about the great change in Recchi City. But the truth never mattered in the Dark World. KingTong did not have unrealistic expectations of her being able to convince the tens of thousands of Wulan State troops in front of her. What she was doing now was very simple. She was just stalling for time. Wang Tianzong went to the Office of the President a long time ago. During this period, even if he could not subdue Li Tianlan, the roaring gunfire would make him realize what was going on. If he had come back as soon as he heard the gunfire, he would have been there by now. Within Recchi City, Wang Tianzong was the only ally that KingTong could rely on. The Shadow Throne had a secret base, where there were also many elites, outside Recchi City. But the two sides were too far away. It would take them at least two hours to get here when they got the message. So all her hopes were on Wang Tianzong. It was not because she would break out of the encirclement easily with Wang Tianzong’s presence; it was because Wang Tianzong and Li Tianlan seemed to be on the same page. It was the military of Wulan State that had done everything tonight. But it must be in accordance with the will of the Snowdance Corps. The actions of the other party were so decisive, which indicated that Li Tianlan was likely to be awake. He had even been planning for tonight for a long time. All that KingTong could see now was the army of Wulan State. But if it were all Li Tianlan’s doing, she couldn’t be sure what else would be waiting for her in the future. KingTong didn’t know much about Li Tianlan, but she knew his style of doing things. This young man, who had just stepped onto the peak stage of the Dark World, might have a lot of shortcomings, such as having little experience… His mind might not be meticulous enough, but his means were crazy enough. KingTong thought that if she broke out of the encirclement now, the consequences would be unpredictable. But if Wang Tianzong were here, everything would be different because Zhongzhou State wouldn’t watch Li Tianlan attack Wang Tianzong. It was just like that Zhongzhou State wouldn’t watch Wang Tianzong attack Li Tianlan. If Wang Tianzong were here, everything tonight would mostly be solved by negotiations. Maybe KingTong had to compensate for what happened tonight, which was undoubtedly a grievance. However, compared with the bloody battle that was about to happen, saving strength was undoubtedly the most important thing. KingTong waited in silence. She liked Wang Tianzong like crazy, and she liked him for many years. He was the man she admired the most, trusted the most, and relied on the most invisibly. She believed that Wang Tianzong would come. It was either one step earlier or one step later. So now she stood here and used the power she broke out in an instant to deter these ordinary troops. Then she tried her best to stall for time and wait for Wang Tianzong to come to help her. Time passed slowly in seconds and minutes. The army of Wulan State was getting more and more restless. Wang Tianzong had never appeared. The firmness in KingTong’s eyes began to waver, and she fell into a trance. She put her expectations on another person, but she did not get the corresponding result. There were only two possibilities. First, the other party could not do it. Second, the other party was unwilling to do it. KingTong didn’t know what had happened in the Office of the President, but the reality presented itself in front of her. Wang Tianzong didn’t come. “The person you’ve been waiting for has reached a new agreement with Wulan State.” A voice suddenly sounded. It was calm, slow, and dignified. “He won’t come. Your Highness KingTong, it’s meaningless to buy time. It will only make me gather more and more troops. I can give you a choice. You and everyone behind you, hold your head and squat down immediately. I will send you to where you should go.” This time, the army of Wulan State was no longer in a state of agitation. Instead, the elites of the Shadow Throne behind KingTong were restless. No one believed what the other party had just said, but it was hard for them not to believe it. The Shadow Throne was very close to the Wang family of Beihai. But they were not so close that Wang Tianzong would cooperate with the Shadow Throne no matter what. The ones who really had a good relationship with the Wang family of Beihai were KingTong and Rothschild instead of the Shadow Throne. If Wang Tianzong really reached an agreement with Wulan State, it meant that he had given up the Shadow Throne. And no matter what Wang Tianzong would acquire for such a move, at least the Shadow Throne would suffer a more fatal loss tonight. Wang Tianzong may give up the Shadow Throne. Could he possibly abandon KingTong as well? Several higher-ups of the Shadow Throne behind KingTong couldn’t help but look at each other. They came from different European wealthy families, so they were extremely sensitive to anything. “Do you think I’ll believe it?” KingTong sneered and glanced around. The voice came through the megaphone and spread to more than half of the block. KingTong was not sure where the person was, but she was sure that the person was the commander of this operation in Wulan State. “You have a reason not to believe it, but it’s the truth. His Majesty is now a guest in the Office of the President. His Majesty is wise, powerful, and understands the important principle thoroughly. He will naturally not associate with any terrorist organizations. But His Majesty values friendship. He wants us to spare you. That’s all he wants from us. Your Highness KingTong, please believe our sincerity.” Wang Tianzong had a friendship with the Shadow Throne, but if it weren’t for the sake of KingTong, he wasn’t really so close to the Shadow Throne. Abandoning the Shadow Throne to protect KingTong was something Wang Tianzong would do. KingTong’s heart suddenly sank. At this moment, she clearly felt the undisguised suspicion in the eyes of the several higher-ups behind her. The most important thing was that it was not just others who were suspecting her. Even KingTong’s heart began to waver. She did not believe that Wang Tianzong would reach an agreement with Wulan State. However, she didn’t know anything about what had happened in the Office of the President. Wang Tianzong hadn’t come yet. KingTong thought it was most likely that Wang Tianzong had encountered a problem and couldn’t get away for the time being. Under the circumstances that he couldn’t get out to help her, with Wang Tianzong’s character, he would never care about the lives of other people in the Shadow Throne. “Is what the other party said true?” KingTong was utterly confused. “Let me introduce myself.” The clear and steady voice continued to sound in the army. “I am Prance, the minister of the intelligence department of Wulan State. Your Highness KingTong, His Majesty, the Sword Emperor, is one of the people I respect the most. As long as you surrender tonight, I can assure you in the name of Wulan State that Wulan State will not hurt you.” Prance. The minister of the Military Intelligence Department of Wulan State. In the entire Wulan State, among senior officials, he was the worthiest of befriending, but he was also recognized as someone who was the most low-key. He had enormous influence, but he never took part in any contest for power. When Wulan State was peaceful, the game between Rekvia and the Office of the President began. Prance remained neutral and impassive. After the great change in Wulan State, Prance was equally neutral and impassive. He might not be the most senior official in Wulan State, but he was definitely the master of the entire intelligence system of Wulan State. “You don’t have to provoke my relationship with the Shadow Throne here. General Prance, the Shadow Throne belongs to me. Behind me are all my subordinates. What’s the point of your action?” KingTong sneered suddenly. Her attitude was extremely tough, but the skepticism behind her did not weaken at all. Once some seeds were planted, they would not disappear even if they did not sprout. “You belong to Rothschild ” Prance said softly, “I suddenly thought of a story. Ten years ago, the Rothschild family’s secret laboratory in France was uprooted by someone because it was reported that there was nearly a third of the Immortality Potion in that laboratory. Rothschild had been trying to replicate the miracle of the Immortality Potion. Rothschild’s research in this field had been at a standstill since the destruction of the laboratory. Because of the destruction of the lab, the family lost two important figures who studied related subjects, though the enemy failed to find the Immortality Potion in it. “After that, the patriarch of Rothschild flew into a rage, and you also mobilized the entire Shadow Throne to trace the clues. During the three-month investigation, all signs finally pointed to the Radisson family in France. “The Radisson family was wiped out, and this matter came to an end. “However, I wonder if you noticed that in less than half a year after the Radisson family was destroyed, the patriarch of the Tanlis family also died because of organ failure. Can’t you see something in this?” Prance’s voice carried a faint of a smile. “Bullshit!” Before KingTong could say anything, a middle-aged man behind her suddenly stood up and flew into a rage. He flushed with anger, looking very excited, but there was a trace of panic and fear deep in his eyes that could not be concealed. His name was Elvain Tanlis. He was now the second in charge of the Tanlis family and one of the top leaders of the Shadow Throne. The old patriarch who died of organ failure in Prance’s story was his father. Back then, Rothschild’s laboratory had been uprooted. In the end, Rothschild destroyed the Radisson family. The Radisson family wasn’t worth mentioning at all. In Europe, it was just a third-rate family. However, the Tanlis family was a true colossus as well as one of the core components of the Shadow Throne. Right now, Prance had spoken of what had happened a decade ago and had directed against the Tanlis family with clues. If all of this was faked, then Prance genuinely had an execrable motive. The corners of KingTong’s eyes suddenly twitched. She glanced at Elvain, and then quickly shifted her gaze. She caught the panic and fear in Elvain’s eyes. After the end of the incident a decade ago, she, too, felt something fishy about the death of the patriarch of the Tanlis family. The old patriarch died of organ failure. What this symptom needed most was the vitality of Immortality Potion. Rothschild had been tracking some clues. But KingTong didn’t say anything about it because she was the queen of the Shadow Throne. “Your Highness, trust me. What happened that year has nothing to do with the Tanlis family. I…” Elvain turned abruptly, looking at KingTong with panic on his face. “What’s there to say about what happened so many years ago? Elvain, of course I believe in you. I saw with my own eyes the innocence of the Tanlis family. You don’t have to pay attention to the other party’s nonsense. I doubt he would make up something that happened twenty years ago since he could have mentioned the incident ten years ago.” KingTong took a deep breath and sneered. “Twenty years ago?” Prance laughed, his voice passing through the megaphone, sounding incomparably loud. “I don’t know what happened twenty years ago, but I know what happened two years ago. Two years ago, in summer, on June 13th, do you still remember what you did, Your Highness KingTong?” KingTong froze. She really couldn’t remember. However, in the crowd behind her, an extremely enchanting and charming woman’s face instantly turned pale. “Two years ago, in that summer, you sent one of your most trusted subordinates—Poppy, the most beautiful lady in the Shadow Throne, to seduce the inheritor of the Tanlis family and killed him in bed with poison. Tsk, tsk. It was said that he was the only male descendant of the current generation of the Tanlis family. After he died, the right of inheritance of the Tanlis family fell on Ms. Li Mei’er. It is said that this beautiful daughter of the Tanlis family has already planned to marry the heir of Rothschild. Congratulations.” “Buzz!” KingTong’s brain went blank in an instant. Her body tensed without anyone noticing, and her hairs stood on end. Not far behind her, Poppy was extremely pale, but she managed to keep calm. “Your Highness KingTong, you don’t have a discerning eye. Perhaps you don’t know that the Poppy that you trust is the secret lover of the patriarch of the Johansson family. Even her entry into the Shadow Throne was secretly operated by the Johansson family.” There was unspeakable cruelty in Prance’s voice. “I’m not! I didn’t!” With a desperate look on her face, the ashen-faced Poppy walked out, shook her head hard, and looked around the army. Eventually, her eyes fell on KingTong. “Your Highness.” Poppy’s voice shuddered. “I have nothing to do with the Johansson family!” Everyone saw the ashen-faced and rattled Poppy. Now, her defenses seemed to have been shattered utterly, which completely exposed her emotions. The elite in the Shadow Throne seemed to be deep in thought. “Could it be that she is the one who has seduced and killed the Young Master of Tanlis with poison in the end? Otherwise, why is she so flustered?” KingTong was also looking at Poppy, and her eyes were extremely cold. She thought, “Are you really Johansson’s pawn? Otherwise, why are you so flustered?” The most important thing was that the matter that she asked Poppy to kill the Young Master of the Tanlis family with poison was flawless from beginning to end, and only she and Poppy were aware of it. KingTong was sure that she had never told anyone about it. How did the news leak out? “Your Highness!” Another senior of the Shadow Throne came over, and his voice was heavy and tough. “The other party is obviously talking nonsense and trying to provoke the internal relationship of the Shadow Throne. I suggest we attack them immediately and break out of the siege!” KingTong looked at Poppy, whose face was pale, and then looked at Elvain, who was staring straight at her. At last, she fixed her eyes on the senior who had just appeared. Prance seemed to be able to see everything here, and he asked slowly, “May I ask who are you?” The middle-aged man sneered and said proudly, “I’m Johnson. Johnson Jodl. I’m the patriarch of the Jodl family!” Among the higher-ups of the Shadow Throne, there were also patriarchs of wealthy families. Johnson Jodl was one of them. “The patriarch of the Jodl family?” Prance remained silent for a while, and then he suddenly laughed. “No, you aren’t. I thought of your other name. I should call you High Priest Hall. I’m quite sure that you are the most cultured high priest in the Holy Punishment Priest Group because I accidentally saw your letter to the Pope. You said that the light of God would dispel the shadow in Europe, allowing the light to shine all over the world. Awesome. You should be a poet.” The expressions of everyone in the Shadow Throne, including that of KingTong, changed drastically.
