The first rays of the sun rise for a new tomorrow in the lands of the Feudal Lord Zhao.
The long rain came to an end, to which most citizens consider a new phase.
Citizens go out to clean their homes, businesses, roads, etc. They repair all the damage caused by the rains. Multiple buildings of different styles were damaged by the rains, some slight others of seriousness, but this does not harm the morals of the citizens. Little by little the city becomes more animated and noisy. The guards patrol the roads and the occasional help in the repairs.
In the castle Shui Shi * named for the huge army that has some similarity with the real army of the kingdom, but remains within its walls.
The Feudal Lord Zhao goes to his study room after breakfast with the company of his wife and concubines, reviewing all the daily paperwork of a day's work like any other, next was a maid with a tea set.
KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK
A maid enters the room "Lord Ye wishes to speak with you My Lord"
The maid leans and goes out, after a few seconds an old man holding some papers enters.
"This humble servant greets my lord, excuse me if I arrive late" The eunuch Ye greets with some nervousness.
The Feudal Lord Zhao waves his hand "It is not necessary so much formality, take a seat".
The eunuch Ye sits down and the maid prepares a cup of tea for him.
Feudal Lord Zhao begins to speak "Well? What news do you have? "
"Success, the 5 squadrons disguised destroyed the indicated villages, according to the reports of our spies, the forces of the Feudal Lord Chu were mobilized very close to the border, this alarmed the army of the Feudal Lord Chen increasing his forces in the whole area; Skirmishes have intensified throughout the river frontier. Very soon the tension between both sides will explode and the war will begin "The eunuch Ye explains the situation.
The Feudal Lord Zhao applauds for the news.
"Excellent, now we just have to wait and continue to harass and watch both fools, yes. Uhm, what's wrong? The Feudal Lord Zhao asks because he discovers that the eunuch Ye shows a worried face.
"See my Lord this is what happens, TOS" The eunuch Ye coughs to clear his throat and continues.
"According to General Li, he sent five squadrons to attack 5 villages, but only 4 returned and the missing squadron was the squadron that attacked YMYLOL village"
"What happened to that squadron?" Feudal Lord Zhao asks with bewilderment.
"When General Li discovered that this squadron was not returning, he sent scouts to that village to know the situation, upon his return they informed him that they found no body on the earth except 3 skeletons that had part of the disguise armor; they found swords, shields and parts of armors destroyed by all in area; all the horses tore off their legs and allowed them to rot; there were also several clusters of earth everywhere, which suggests that someone buried the bodies. "The eunuch Ye finishes his report.
The Feudal Lord Zhao is surprised by such news, it must have been an impeccable attack with insignificant casualties, but now a whole squad disappeared.
"This is unheard of, according to the reports of that village, the only decent warrior is Tao Qi of Trained Bone level, the others are just amateurs. What exactly happened? " Feudal Lord Zhao raises his voice.
"My Lord please calm down" The eunuch Ye gets nervous "We also do not know what happened in truth, only found the weapons of the soldiers sent, due to the rains that have cleared the whole place, makes the investigation more difficult; according to our understanding there were 33 inhabitants in that place and according to the explorers they counted 33 tombs and 18 swords, that means that as much as the villagers and the soldiers died there are. According to my theory, all the villagers died first and someone powerful or a group killed the soldiers and buried the villagers, but the disappearance of the soldiers' bodies is a mystery "
The Feudal Lord Zhao falls deeply into his thoughts reflecting on these events.
The soldiers sent, even if they died or not, did not matter to him; they were trained under a strict discipline a rigorous training, even if they were novices, they can fight with any veteran soldier either of the Feudal Lord Chen or of the Feudal Lord Chu.
"To finish with all that squadron it is impossible for several Trained Soul to be present, they would only worry about getting to understand the Martial Principle, the only ones with that ability to possess that kind of strength is a Martial Artist"
Those who manage to understand the Martial Principles will open the doors to a new world, it is also known as the Beginning of Enlightenment. The Earthly Qi will begin to flow in your body which will awaken your abilities and elemental domains if you possess it.
As a Martial Artist, the Feudal Lord Zhao makes his theories about what happened.
"Minimum must have been a level 3 Martial Mortal, but even so, towards a Martial Artist in that place, was there something of value for them in that place or was there someone who caught their attention?
"We do not know, My Lord" The eunuch Ye responds without encouragement. "But, the explorers found a message written on a stone, saying" That sea is the beginning of a new race "
"Ha, just forget it"Feudal Lord Zhao lazily reclines on the seat while he sighs "There was no one who called the attention of a Martial Artist since he found 33 corresponding tombs for all the villagers; so maybe there was some object or grass that caught his attention and that squadron will have caused it causing their deaths. These Martial Artists are very fickle in their temperament and do not like to waste time in discussions, and some like to brag. Simply file it as fallen in battle "
The eunuch Ye writes the mandate on a paper.
"Well, even so, the plan was a success, I managed to create a casus belli for those two to enter the war. Now we simply relax watching how those two fight until they lose much of their strength; then we will attack and take over all those lands. But that will only be the beginning "
His eyes burned with ambition, even if he maintained a calm attitude.
The eunuch Ye asks "And the Master Puppeteer? Where is?"
"He has informed me that he has secluded, improving his puppets and his strength and to keep him informed of the Young Chu if she leaves the sect"Feudal Lord Zhao speaks "Although surely she will leave when she becomes a Martial Artist and dominates a couple of techniques to defend themselves, but for him the level reached is of little importance, it will not be very big or I also think the same; what she wants is she leave to be able to capture her. But that news will find out in ten years. By the time she finds out, he will capture it and she will take us to the next plan "
The eunuch Ye understands the saying "Then, what are your orders My Lord?"
"Just send our spies to keep watching the movements of those two and the Young Chu, I'll call you if something happens"
The eunuch Ye gets up and bows before him, then leaves the room.
When the door closes, Lord Zhao gets up and goes to the window looking at how the city was rebuilt by the citizens.
"Soon my flags will be throughout the region"
But inside of him, he feels discomfort and restlessness as if something was lurking in the dark
