The First Order - Chapter 1156
“Waiting for me?” Melgor was taken aback. “Why are they waiting for me?”
A moment later, the commotion over here apparently alerted the lovely young men and women in the ballroom, and they walked over with a graceful demeanor.
Even the singing in the ballroom became much softer.
The luxurious palace was exquisite and magnificent, and the marble floor beneath everyone’s feet was polished to a mirror finish.
The chandelier hanging above the ballroom floor was made with crystals, while the glittering decorations that could be seen in the corridor were seemingly made of pure gold!
But on this occasion, a fringe sorcerer like Melgor suddenly became the focus of everyone’s attention.
Before those people arrived from the ballroom, Melgor cast a pleading gaze at Ren Xiaosu. When Ren Xiaosu gathered that they did not have any malicious intent, he quickly moved aside and made space for Melgor.
A young man dressed in a black tuxedo came up to Melgor and said with a smile, “Hello, Sorcerer Melgor. We’ve all heard about your deeds. You can say we really admire you.”
Startled, Melgor asked, “My deeds? What deeds?”
“About how you single-handedly defeated the House of Tudor’s knights, of course.” The young man smiled and said, “Let me introduce myself. My name is Forbes Winston.”
Ren Xiaosu was taken aback. He looked at Chen Jingshu with a questioning look in his eyes that seemed to say, “Why would these bounty hunters get involved with the sorcerer clans?”
Chen Jingshu and An’an had departed from their usual appearances. Chen Jingshu was dressed in a black, low-cut evening gown which vividly accentuated her enchanting figure. Meanwhile, An’an wore a long white dress. The two of them did not look like they were bounty hunters at all. Instead, they looked more like members of the sorcerer clans.
Chen Jingshu whispered, “I’ll explain later.”
Amid the laughter and chatter, Forbes Winston invited Melgor over to the palace. As they walked, he said, “Our House of Winston has a long-standing feud with the House of Tudor. Sorcerer Melgor, since you defeated them, you’re definitely a friend of us Winstons. Moreover, you hail from a decent family that isn’t affiliated with any of the sorcerer clans, so we can be friends without worries. I wonder, are you willing to be friends with us?”
Melgor was a little lost. He wanted to ask Ren Xiaosu for help but realized Ren Xiaosu didn’t intend to save him.
When those people walked over to the ballroom, Ren Xiaosu asked Chen Jingshu in a low voice, “Have you bounty hunters revolted or something? I thought y’all hated the sorcerer clans?”
“These people are different.” Chen Jingshu held up a champagne flute and said, “They’re all in favor of revolution.”
“Revolution?” Ren Xiaosu wondered.
“To tear down the barriers established by the sorcerer clans and agree to establish a school where all the magus arts will be taught systematically through a planned curriculum. No one could hoard the spells for themselves anymore.” Chen Jingshu said, “On top of that, they’re also enemies of the House Tudor.”
Ren Xiaosu frowned as he looked at the people in the ballroom. “Are they all from the Winston family?”
“That’s right.” Chen Jingshu said, “But they’re only a small portion of the Winston family’s younger generation.”
“A small portion and there’s already so many of them?” Ren Xiaosu lamented, “I’ve really fucking underestimated the virility of sorcerers.”
And what was even worse was that Ren Xiaosu saw a young couple kissing off to the side. Based on what Chen Jingshu had said, those two were goddamn close relatives. What a disgusting sight!
If the youth of the sorcerer clans continued down this path, Ren Xiaosu had reason to suspect their intelligence might degrade to the point where they wouldn’t even know how to cast spells a few generations later. Genetic diseases would cause their entire clans to collapse slowly.
Ren Xiaosu looked at Chen Jingshu. “I’m guessing y’all aren’t stupid enough to believe that they’re on your side, right? Do they know that y’all’re bounty hunters?”

“Of course not.” Chen Jingshu smiled. “And just as you thought, we’re only making use of each other.”
Looking at the extravagant decor of the palace, it did not seem like a place a group of people who wanted to revolutionize the era would like.
“These kids of the House of Winston are all fringe figures in their clan. They can’t bear to see others inheriting the authority of the family, nor can they accept that they can’t obtain the most important meditative visualization diagrams of the clan. So they sought external help to break the intrinsic order.” Chen Jingshu said, “With such ambition, it naturally presents us an opportunity. I think you can also get to know them through Melgor.”
Ren Xiaosu curled his lips. “Sorry to disappoint, but I’m not interested.”
“I don’t know what your purpose in coming to the Kingdom of Sorcerers is, but I know you’re unfriendly towards the Magi.” Chen Jingshu said in seriousness, “Since your interests are aligned, why don’t you make use of them?”
Ren Xiaosu grinned and said, “Maybe it’s because I’m strong enough.”
Chen Jingshu was at a momentary loss for words. She was dumbfounded and did not know how to continue the conversation.
And neither did she know just how powerful Ren Xiaosu was when he said he was strong.
“Are there any young sorcerers you know who really want to revolutionize the era?” Ren Xiaosu asked. “What I mean is, those who can cast aside their aristocratic attitude and do things seriously.”
Chen Jingshu answered, “Yes, but they’re few and far between. Some of the young sorcerers studying in Ghent City are sincere about pushing for reforms.”
“I don’t mind getting to know them.” Ren Xiaosu said with a laugh, “Aunt Flo, please make the necessary arrangements when we arrive at Ghent City.”
Chen Jingshu said, “… Will you die if you don’t annoy people? So what about these people?”
“Them… um… I really don’t have any interest in dealing with them.” Ren Xiaosu said, “I don’t need their help.”
As long as Melgor’s reputation was good enough, people would follow him.
What Ren Xiaosu needed to do was very simple. He needed to completely destroy the order in the Kingdom of Sorcerers and let the new era enable Melgor’s rise.
As for opposing voices, Ren Xiaosu would have to “reach an agreement” with them.
Chen Jingshu looked at Ren Xiaosu and said, “You can’t change an entire nation all by yourself.”
Ren Xiaosu responded with a smile, “Who says I’m doing it alone?”
Chen Jingshu looked at Ren Xiaosu seriously. “You’re thinking of forming an alliance with us bounty hunters?”

Ren Xiaosu was stunned. “Oh, sorry, I wasn’t referring to y’all. You’re not strong enough yet.”
Chen Jingshu was speechless.
What Ren Xiaosu was trying to say was, “Sorry, but the strength y’all have displayed so far is way too weak to be my teammates.” But he stopped himself from saying that. After all, he had to unite all the forces that could be united. Moreover, Ren Xiaosu really needed the bounty hunters to help him get in touch with the young sorcerers in Ghent City. He needed those people to form a considerable force around Melgor.
Because, after he left the Kingdom of Sorcerers, Melgor would need his own supporters to take charge of this kingdom.
Ren Xiaosu suddenly felt like he had turned into Zhang Jinglin. Back then, Zhang Jinglin had probably sent the 6th Combat Brigade to the Central Plains with the same thought!
