The Great Conqueror - Chapter 114
The Great Conqueror Chapter 114: Solar Knight – Nebelo
"Keep on, Arthur! Everybody's watching!"
At the end of the ceremony, Subaru gave Zou Liang some guidance in private. Arthur was his grandchild and disciple to some extent.
"Grand Master, when can our majesty give me something practical, such as ending my probation, and giving my master a red dress? What's the use of this medal?"
Zou Liang said with a crooked mouth and did not regard himself as an outsider at all.
Subaru couldn't help laughing, only this kid dared to say such words, but he liked Arthur's boldness. People in the temple were hypocritical. They hated each other in hearts, but they always wore bright smiles.
Arthur really treated his master as a family member, and put his master in mind at any time. Such honest disciple should be the first one to be promoted.
"Arthur, Pope needs to think of the whole empire. I'm working hard on Thomas's business. You just have to do your own business. Thomas, tell him the meaning of the Golden Thorn Medal of Holy War, so that my offences against many people won't be in vain," laughed Subaru. It was a sincere laugh. He felt really comfortable to talk with this couple of master and apprentice without guessing and unction.
"You brat, the Golden Thorn Medal of Holy War is the highest-rank medal of the empire, the same as the Beast God Medal of Glory but in a different sense. Medal of Holy War would be awarded to generals who achieved great military achievements in holy wars. Historically, all owners of the Medal of Holy War were knights above the Gold rank. Later, it also can be awarded to a person who made great contributions to the Beast God. It's an unprecedented record that you a flamen won such a medal that only knights could win."
"Master, since there's no outsider here, can you tell me the truth? What's the benefit with this honor?"
"Ha-ha, of course it has. With this medal, you are granted the right to mobilize a small group of knights in every city at any time."
"Knights of Beast God?" As soon as Zou Liang knew the benefits, his eyes brightened. Although he should not exact reciprocation for his devotion to Beast God, only with practical support could he better contribute efforts to Beast God.
"Yes. There's no problem for a glory flamen with the Golden Thorn Medal of Holy War to mobilize the Knights of Beast God occasionally," Subaru laughed and really liked this interesting kid.
"Grand Master, you are great!" Zou Liang did not hesitate to flatter Subaru. This did please Shaman Subaru.
"By the way, do you know Nebelo, Grand Master?" Zou still missed this sunlike fellow.
Nebelo's skin was brighter than his. What was more, Nebelo became a silver-light warrior before 30 years old, which made Zou feel a little pressure and want to know more information about Nebelo because knowing the rival would help to defeat him.
"You mean the son of Great Governor, Solar Knight Nebelo?" Subaru laughed and wondered if Nebelo was the boy's idol.
Zou Liang was stunned. He didn't expect that this guy had such a boastful nickname!
"Yes, can I control him with this medal?"
"Cough, I'm afraid that won't work. Knight Nebelo has also been awarded. Besides, his condition is quite special." Subaru realized that Nebelo wasn't this kid's idol.
"What are you thinking, young man? Pope's reward is a special encouragement!"
"Haha, Master, I'm joking. Knight Nebelo is the idol of our young people. I want to follow his example!"
'Damn it! I will be eighteen next year. I am in the high time of my life, young and promising, while that cocky knight Nebelo is near his forty. Sooner or later, I will surpass Nebelo. Nebolo is too old to match Oricia, but he doesn't feel shame to love her at his age. I must defeat Nebelo in the future," Zou was lost in thought.
"I highly appreciate your ambition, young man!" Subaru nodded. "Arthur, I heard on the way that you've designed a new weapon. What's it?'
"It's a crossbow, sir."
"Yes, crossbow. Can it be popularized?"
This was a key issue. If the crossbow could be popularized, the temple could even control the Archers Guild.
"Grand Master, to popularize it is very difficult. Avril is a member of the Moon Tribe. Her beast spirit has a special attribute. I was inspired by her female temperament. If it is not for her, the failure rate will be higher. As you want this, I think I should study this problem carefully and maybe I will solve it."
Any leader hoped his subordinates got his idea by just simple words and were not afraid of difficulties.
"Good boy. Whatever difficulties you encounter, just tell your Master. If he can't help you, come to me then!"
Zou Liang, naturally, flattered Subaru sincerely. He remembered that a reasonable saying in his original world that did it if there were difficulties; if there were no difficulties, made some before you did.
Subaru left with satisfaction and took away a lot of presents. Every time he came, a few carts of gifts were indispensable.
Zou looked at the distant carts and could not help admiring Subaru. How long would it take before he could receive presents everywhere like Grand Master?
Anyway, he had a Medal now. He would not feel inferior to Solar Knight from now on.
After dealing with trivia, Zou Liang remembered that he hadn't gone to read materials for several days. Senior Lu Yao might be unhappy. But even if she was angry, she had a special charm. No wonder jerks could be always found around beautiful women. He didn't understand this before, but now he did. Some men just liked to provoke beauties to enjoy their charm of anger.
Pursuing beauty was a kind of elegance, spiritual strength and realm of lofty thought.
People would be invincible when they became jerks. That was probably what it meant.
However, when Zou came back to college, he hadn't met Senior Lu Yao yet. He was too narcissistic. Everyone had own business. Lu Yao had no time to stare at him every day! Zou Liang enjoyed this quiet and easy time. Cote took care of Ernest, so Ernest would not have any problems. This boy worked hard every day and let Zou Liang feel at ease.
Avril was practicing her crossbow. She finally had such a special weapon, her joy was conceivable. At the same time, she was the most popular figure in the Archers Guild and in the War College.
After all, such a weapon was so powerful that it could overawe other professions. Armored fighters were nothing in the face of such a weapon. In team warfare, with such an archer, the opponent should be chilled. It was too terrible to compete.
Because of Avril's fame, the competition between Emma and Gina had been ignored. Students now wanted to know more about Avril. Emma and Gina had less fun fighting when nobody paid attention to them.
