Versatile Mage - Chapter 3008
3008 Who Owns the Stone?
The Saintess gave them a chance to watch Apollo.
They supported the saintess because her blessing could help people advance beyond mediocrity!
The ceremony was solemn. Even if everyone was excited and joyful because of the gradual awakening of some special powers in the blessing of Apollo’s attention, they could not express it at will.
They saluted one by one and left.
After leaving the sight of Haylon, Ye Xinxia, and Norman, they cheered in the forest. They said some words of gratitude and pledged their loyalty.
After staying in the Parthenon Temple for so many years, Xinxia knew that the loyalty of the knights did not depend on the long-term baptism of the temple culture but on the power, glory, respect, and expectations they fulfilled.
It was no wonder they only supported those who had the Divine Soul. Only the blessing of the Divine Soul could bring them these things.
The ceremony was over before noon.
Haylon and Norman did not leave and entered the Saintess’ Hall together.
Norman was talking with Jonne, the Grand Master of the St. Kai’s Altar. The two had a close relationship.
“Norman, is this the power of the saintesses of the Parthenon Temple? It is incredible! If I weren’t the Grand Master of the Australian Magic Association, I would also like to stand with those Golden Knights and feel the attention of Apollo. Maybe my Light Element, which has never advanced to Forbidden Curse, will have a glimmer of hope!” the Grand Master, Jonne, said.
“This is just the power of the saintess. When Her Highness becomes a goddess, the blessings she can bestow will be even more extraordinary. Parthenon Temple has a deep foundation. Otherwise, how can we possibly expect to have so many believers all over the world?” Norman said with a smile.
In fact, the effect brought by Apollo’s attention surprised Norman a little. The Divine Soul seemed to blend with Ye Xinxia perfectly. Every blessing she cast seemed to be bestowed by the real god. Even many Forbidden Mages coveted it.
“The Blessing Element is the leader of White Magic, after all. Outside the Holy City is the holy land of the Parthenon Temple. This statement is true. St. Kai’s Altar… Alas, not only is it lifeless, but it also doesn’t have that kind of impressive magic. Everyone only knows how to enjoy themselves. They have become so fat to the point that they find it difficult to even move. We’ll only fall behind and become weaker.” The Grand Holy Altar Master, Jonne, sighed.
The St. Kai’s Altar from the Five Continents Magic Association…
But the Grand Master, Jonne, knew that the gap between the Australian Supreme Magic Association and the Parthenon Temple was too big!
The leader was someone who could bestow real power and the blessing of the gods. On the other hand, the leader of the Australian Magic Association did not even bother to make empty promises.
“We all know that your Light Element doesn’t advance to the Forbidden Curse because of the evil curse when you returned from the Extreme South. I have already negotiated with Her Highness about this matter, and she will remove it for you,” Norman said to the Grand Holy Altar Master, Jonne.
“I’m really grateful. I don’t even know how to repay you.” Jonne was so excited that he almost wanted to salute, but Norman hurriedly stopped him.
“Supporting Her Highness of the Parthenon Temple in Australia is the best way to show your gratitude,” said Norman.
After returning to the hall, Xinxia invited Grand Master Jonne for a meal.
When Jonne saw that Norman and Haylon were not qualified to sit with her, he panicked and did not dare to sit at the same table with the saintess. However, Jonne soon found that people around Xinxia chose their seats at random. Norman and Haylon did not sit down because they insisted on maintaining their etiquette as knights of the Parthenon Temple.
“Grand Master Jonne, there’s something I would like to ask you,” said Xinxia.
“Feel free to ask anything, Your Highness.” After seeing the magic of the Blessing Element of the Parthenon Temple, Jonne had already become hopeful of becoming a Light Element Forbidden Mage. Therefore, he respected the saintess even more.
“St. Kai’s Altar also has a stone from Holy City, right?” asked Xinxia.
“Huh?” Jonne’s expression slightly changed.
“I just want to know who owns this stone now,” said Xinxia.
“This… To tell you the truth, this stone is not owned by one person. It is jointly kept by me, Buck, and Gomis. We can decide what to do with the stone,” Jonne said in a low voice.
“Tell me about their temperament,” said Xinxia.
“Buck is staying neutral, and Gomis will probably obey the lord of the Holy City.”
“What about you?” Xinxia asked.
Unknowingly, Jonne’s palms were a little sweaty. “I… If you can remove my Light Element Evil Curse, I’ll support you. But even so, we can’t have the stone since Buck will most likely obey the Holy City,” Jonne said cautiously.
The Holy City could not give Jonne anything, except for an arrogant attitude.
The Supreme Magic Association should have the highest law enforcement power, but the existence of the Holy City had never allowed it to have full control.
After becoming a Light Element Forbidden Mage, Jonne would become a Double Elements Forbidden Mage, and he no longer needed to humble himself in front of the Holy City.
What angered the Great Master Jonne the most was the trip to the Extreme South. The Holy City initiated the trip, for which he paid his future as the price. The Holy City had not given him a solution until now. After he got to know Norman and learned about the blessings of the Parthenon Temple’s Divine Soul, he knew that he had hopes of removing the evil curse and becoming a Light Element Forbidden Mage!
“Not only will you be able to get rid of the evil curse, but the Blessing of God’s Seal will also open the door of God’s gift to the third element,” Xinxia said to Jonne.
Jonne opened his mouth to say something. If he activated the third element of God’s gift, he could surpass Gomis and become the strongest person among the staff of the Australian Magic Association!
“If you support us, we will support you too,” said Xinxia.
How could Jonne not understand what she meant?
“Actually, Buck owes me a favor that can only be repaid with his life.” The Grand Master Jonne immediately expressed his hidden thoughts.
“Okay, let’s eat first.”
The delicious food was served course by course. It was the first time in more than ten years that Grand Master Jonne experienced such a wonderful feast. Delicious food could make anybody happy!
Xinxia finally had an appetite.
It was near dusk when Ye Xinxia boarded the plane and headed to Greenbud City in the south.
Tulce and Jerome accompanied them. These two were representatives of the Tulce family. They were supposed to take the oath. They did not know why they boarded this plane to the southern countryside!
After getting off the plane in Greenbud City, Tulce finally could not stand Ye Xinxia’s silent treatment!
“What on earth do you want? What I hate the most is Orientals like you who like to pretend to be so profound!” Tulce said as he pointed rudely at Ye Xinxia.
Like before, he did not have much respect for the saintess.
“I see. I was pretending to be profound. I gave you a whole day to reflect, but you didn’t want to tell me anything. I had no choice but to bring you here so that you could witness the disaster of Greenbud City with your own eyes and let you feel the grief of those who have lost their loved ones. It is also my hope that I can evoke a little remorse in your heart.” Ye Xinxia looked at Tulce calmly.
