Versatile Mage - Chapter 2969
Chapter 2969: Public Trial
After hearing Mo Fan’s remarks, Shou Watani and another instructor became angry and irritated.
How could there be such an arrogant and domineering person? He did not show any respect to the people in the Twin Guardian Towers.
“Mo Fan, I admit that you’re strong. However, the Twin Guardian Towers has a foundation that lasted hundreds of years. Even if you defeated the guards yesterday, you wouldn’t be able to compete with all the masters in the Twin Guardian Towers. You should calm down and admit to your mistakes. Considering that you’re a foreigner, the chief won’t punish you very severely,” said Shou Watani.
Mo Fan abruptly exclaimed, “Shou Watani, after hearing your remarks, I think you have a clear mind.”
“What do you mean by “a clear mind”? Everyone here has a clear mind. Both you and Officer Ozawa stepped over the line yesterday!” Shou Watani said sternly.
“You know nothing. Don’t you realize that other people around you don’t care and are not confused by what we did?” Mo Fan asked.
The question surprised Shou Watani, who then turned to look around.
He understood that nobody had questioned Mo Fan and Lingling about their motivations for trying to enter the East Guardian Towers. Perhaps he was the only one who was ignorant.
“Lingling, we have another ally,” Mo Fan said to Lingling.
Lingling tucked her hair behind her ears and glanced at Shou Watani, who was still confused.
It was true that Shou Watani did not know anything. Since he was suddenly transferred here, the people here probably did not want him to stay.
“Mr. Shou Watani, you should just ignore them. Breaking the strict law of the Twin Guardian Towers is a serious crime,” Ikuko Ishida reminded him.
“Y-Yes, but they need motives to commit crimes. I want to know what your motives are,” said Shou Watani.
“Motives?” Mo Fan said. “I want to save individuals like you who don’t know the reality.
Shout Watani was even more confused.
He looked at Tegami Fujikata and Chihaya Mochizuki, then he turned to Mo Fan and Lingling again.
‘Why does everyone appear to be aware of what is happening? Meanwhile, I don’t know anything! What the hell is going on?’
“Chihaya, take Shou Watani with you and leave,” Tegami Fujikata suddenly said.
“Okay, Miss Tegami.” Chihaya Mochizuki nodded.
Mo Fan glanced at Chihaya Mochizuki. It seemed that she had fallen into the hands of the enemy. It was unknown whether she was controlled or replaced. There were several floors of cells below the East Guardian Tower, and Mo Fan did not have time to check them one by one.
“Why do I need to leave?” Shou Watani was even more confused.
‘Why did she want him to leave when they were still having a conversation?’
“Shou Watani, there are some things you don’t need to know. The Twin Guardian Towers have its way of handling things,” said Tegami Fujikata with a smile.
“I have the right to know. After all, I’m one of the instructors in the State House and a member of the Twin Guardian Towers.” Shou Watani did not intend to leave. He wanted to know the whole story.
“I’ll let you know later,” said Tegami Fujikata.
“No. I need to know the truth. Or is there another secret behind this matter and you don’t want to disclose it to me because I have only been here for a month or two?” The more Shou Watani listened, the more he found this whole situation very strange.
“Miss Tegami, I don’t quite get it either,” said Sinchino Mochizuki. He was also obviously baffled by the whole thing.
“Shinchino, this is not something you should ask!” Chihaya Mochizuki glared at him.
“Then what should I ask? Am I to be excluded even though I’m a member of the Mochizuki family? Everyone knows what kind of a person Officer Ozawa is. I could believe that anyone in this place could betray the Twin Guardian Towers except him. Why did Officer Ozawa want to break into the East Guardian Towers? There must be something happening in the East Guardian Towers that has a huge impact on every one of us,” said Shinchino Mochizuki.
Ozawa obviously had a good relationship with people in the Twin Guardian Towers. Shinchino Mochizuki’s remarks resonated with other instructors and students.
“Yeah, how could Officer Ozawa make such a decision?”
“Why did he sneak two outsiders into the East Guardian Towers?”
“What did he see in the East Guardian Towers?”
“Yeah, what happened to Ozawa? Could it be that he was affected by the Evil Gang?”
“He did make a mistake, but I believe it was unintentional.”
Many students started to comment on the matter. Mo Fan and Lingling were surprised to hear these comments.
It seemed that the Blood Demons and Evil Gang did not have total control over the Twin Guardian Towers. There were still many people with sober minds in the Twin Guardian Towers.
There was still hope!
“I have something to report! Officer Ozawa has voluntarily surrendered himself to General Takuichi. As Officer Ozawa requested a public trial, ministers from various departments have already joined him in court. Everyone in the Twin Guardian Towers can participate.” A soldier suddenly ran in and saluted Tegami Fujikata.
Tegami Fujikata frowned. Mo Fan and Lingling exchanged glances. ‘Was Ozawa trying to feign ignorance? Why did he voluntarily surrender?’
‘Did he want to confront the Twin Guardian Towers, which were ruled by demons?’
Those Blood Demons might mutilate him. It was extremely dangerous!
“General Takuichi hasn’t been replaced,” Lingling whispered to Mo Fan.
Mo Fan nodded. He had not seen General Takuichi in the cell.
However, there were still people in the Twin Guardian Towers whose minds were controlled. Since the Blood Demons controlled their thoughts, most of them did their bidding without even being replaced.
“Officer Ozawa said that he was the one who sneaked Mo Fan and Miss Lingling into the East Guardian Towers without authorization. They had no idea about it, so they didn’t realize they were violating the commandments. Officer Ozawa was the one who ordered Mo Fan and Miss Lingling to fight against the guards, so it has nothing to do with them,” said the soldier.
Tegami Fujikata’s face darkened after hearing the soldier’s words. Ozawa took all the blame, so Mo Fan and Lingling were still guests of the Twin Guardian Towers. They also did not have a valid reason to arrest them.
“It will only be clear whether he is guilty after the trial,” said Tegami Fujikata.
“Please read to the court, Miss Tegami,” said the soldier.
“Haha, it just so happens that I want to go there too.” Tegami Fujikata sneered.
‘Ozawa would have a public trial. So what?’ He could not possibly overturn the twisted system of the Twin Guardian Towers alone.
Even if it was a court, most of the jury were their people. Whether he had committed a crime or not was up to them.
They could not reveal their true colors before the moonless night came and their master ascended. This act had to go on!
“Let’s go. I also want to know why Officer Ozawa did such a thing,” Sinchino Mochizuki said to Nagayama and Kaede Takahashi. The two nodded.
Shou Watani wanted to figure things out, so he followed everyone to the court.
“Are you done with your meal?” Mo Fan asked.
“Yes,” Lingling replied.
“Let’s go. Tonight, it will be its ascension,” said Mo Fan.
“It’s also the night of judgment. I’ve been looking forward to this day,” said Lingling.
Ozawa was not the one who Lingling wanted to see on trial, but the Red Demon Kazuaki!
