Game of the World Tree - Chapter 865
“You are very similar to Sophia, the Archon of Fengyue Freedom. I think…you should like that place. If you want, I can write a letter of recommendation. I think… the whole Fengyueling will welcome you. Join.”
Keretz said sincerely.
However, after listening to his words, Frank pondered for a moment, but slowly shook his head:
“Thank you for your kindness, Master Keret, although I often hear stories about Fengyue leader from the troubadour population, too. I admire Ms. Sophia who established the free collar, but I don’t want to join.”
Keretz showed a somewhat surprised expression.
Frank thought for a while and said:
“To join Maple Moon Freedom, you must join the Life Church. Whether it is me or my companions, many of them are devout eternal believers.”
“Although the eternal church is decayed, the church It is the church, and the gods are the gods. In my opinion…the mistakes of the church cannot be attributed to the gods.”
“I admire the Church of Life, and respect the goddess of life, but… I’m really sorry.”
Frank Said apologetically.
Keretz took a deep look at him and shook his head slightly:
“Mr. Frank, faith is not the real reason for you. You know who I am, so… you should also know that I can see everything It’s the light of faith in people.” As he
said that, Keretz sighed slightly and looked straight into Frank’s eyes:
“Mr. Frank, how long have you been to the Eternal Church?”
Frank said slightly when he said this. Trembling, couldn’t help but lower his head.
After a while, he
sighed and smiled bitterly: “Keretz, I’m really sorry…I don’t want to join any forces for the time being.”
Keretz nodded slightly.
As he said, he smiled again:
“If one day, your thoughts change, or… if you want to join the Life Church, we will welcome it at any time.”
Frank was silent for a moment and nodded:
“However, what are your plans next? The imperial nobles have already removed you. After the war is over, what do you plan to do with the mercenary group you pulled up?”
Keretz asked again.
He looked at the young knight with a deep gaze and said:
“I can feel that you didn’t just create a mercenary group for your livelihood. You lead your team to punish and eliminate evil, eliminate demons, and be disciplined. Fighting heroically, this is not what an ordinary mercenary group should be.”
“What do you…what do you want to do?”
After listening to Keretz’s words, Frank fell silent again.
After a while, he opened his mouth to answer, but was stopped by the elf demigod:
“You don’t need to tell me your reason, I think… you should also have your worries and difficulties.”
“These days, I have always been Observing you, you are a true chivalrous knight, and I believe in your choice.”
“However, one thing I want to remind you is that it is not just the eternal church that has fallen. If you really put some hope in In the spirit of the gods, you may be disappointed.”
“Of course, I am not referring to the great goddess of life…”
“Mr. Frank, the door of the Church of Life will always be open for you, if one day you really make a decision , We are happy to be your loyal ally again.”
Frank did not communicate with Keretz for too long.
After declining the invitation to join the Life Church, he soon left.
As soon as he went out, he met his own guard, Roland.
Roland saluted him somewhat happily.
Frank raised his eyebrows:
“Roland, why are you here?”
“Hey, I just thought of picking you up after winning a game. I didn’t expect you to end so soon.”
Roland scratched his head and said.
After speaking, he lighted up a kettle in his hand and said with some excitement:
“Look! What did I win?”
Frank’s heart moved.
He looked at the elf-style water bottle, then took it over and smelled it at the mouth of the bottle. He was a little surprised:
“Elf flower tea?”
“Haha! That’s right! It’s the legendary elf flower tea! I heard that it is in the Imperial City, but Only those rich noble lords can drink it!”
Roland said excitedly.
When he finished speaking, he suddenly noticed a cloud of clouds between Frank’s brows, and realized that he had said the wrong thing, and quickly covered his mouth:
“Ah… I’m sorry… Sir Frank, I shouldn’t mention the nobles. …”
Frank was stripped of his noble status.
Although he always said that he had also abandoned the identity of the nobility, abandoning and abandoning, deprivation is another matter.
For the imperial nobles, this is almost a shame of ruin.
On weekdays, he never dared to talk about the nobles in person, for fear of touching the other side’s sadness, but today because he was too excited, he forgot about it.
However, Frank shook his head and said helplessly:
“No, Roland, I’ve said it many times. I don’t care about the names of the nobles.”
“Then you… why do you look so unhappy?”
Roland asked curiously.
Frank was startled.
“Do I… look unhappy?”
He touched his cheek.
“Of course, a look of despair.”
Frank was stunned.
After a while, he smiled bitterly:
“Perhaps…I am a little confused myself…”
“Confused? Lord Frank, didn’t you say that after this journey, you have already figured out how to go on in the future? Didn’t I mean that I intend to lead everyone together, punish evil and promote good, and save the world from fire and water?”
Roland asked suspiciously.
“Roland, I was invited by Keretz to join Fengyue Liberty.”
Roland widened his eyes.
In the next moment, he gradually became excited:
“But I declined.”
Frank said the second half of the sentence.
Roland’s excitement froze on his face.
“You…why do you want to decline? That is Fengyue Free Lead! This way, don’t you always say that you are looking forward to it?!”
“And…even if you join Fengyue Free Lead, we still You can be active on the mainland as a mercenary! There is no conflict!”
“Not to mention, if you can really become a member of the Fengyue Freedom Leader, everyone can also have a home…”
Roland said with some regret.
Seeing his exhilaration and compassion, Frank was stunned:
“But, I remember that you said that your family has always been a pious eternal believer?”
“Eternal believer shit! Lord Frank, if you can join Fengyue If you lead freely, I am willing to change my faith immediately! You have also seen how degenerate the Eternal Church has been along the way!”
Roland said bitterly.
Frank was silent.
“But… Although Fengyue’s free leader is good, Frank is the one we follow. No matter what decision you make, we will support you.”
Roland said quickly, seeming to see Frank’s hesitation.
After speaking, he hesitated and asked curiously:
“But…I’m still curious, why do you decline the invitation under the crown of Keret?”
After hearing the words of the guard, Frank sighed:
“Roland , Do you think…being a knight who punishes evil and promotes good, how many changes can he bring to this decadent era?”
After finishing speaking, before the other party answered, he shook his head and sighed:
“Not far enough… Far from enough… I’ve seen too much along the way. The empire is decayed, from the roots, the nobility has fallen, the church is incompetent, and coupled with the impact of magical recovery, this country is already dying…”
Frank said, looking at Roland, his momentum was stunned:
“Roland, this is the first time I have spoken to you. I came to the southern frontier and founded a mercenary group. The purpose is not just to be a chivalrous knight.
” I, want to overthrow this decadent country…”
“Overthrow…overthrow the empire?!”
Roland’s eyes rounded instantly.
“Yes, what you said before is quite right. I admire Fengyue Freelance very much, and I also admire everything the Life Church has done.”
“In the past few months, I have been observing, thinking and comparing all the way, and gradually realized , Perhaps Fengyue’s free-collar model is the future.”
Frank said in a deep voice.
Roland looked at him in shock. As an aristocratic guardian knight, his concept of rank penetrated into his thoughts. He had never thought of such an amazing thing as overthrowing the empire.
“But… But… if it’s really like this… No, shouldn’t it be better to join Fengyue Freelancer… better?”
Frank understood what he meant.
Since we want to overthrow the empire, join the Maple Moon Freedom, and get more support, everything will go smoothly.
However, Frank declined the invitation of the elves.
He did not directly explain this, but instead asked:
“Roland, what do you think of the situation in the mainland?”
“Um… Lord Frank, I am just a knight. Although I was a nobleman, you know, since I was young, I really hate those courses and don’t know much about politics.”
Roland said embarrassedly.
Frank laughed, he shook his head slightly, his expression gradually serious, and said:
“Roland, if I join the Fengyue Freedom and want to overthrow the empire, I am afraid it will probably cause a strong reaction from the eternal church, and even lead to a war of gods… “As
soon as these words came out, Roland’s eyes rounded again:
“You…what did you say?!”
“This matter involves the secrets of a thousand years ago… Roland, you know the battle for the founding of the empire. ?”
“Hmm…I have heard some legends, our family history is relatively short, and there are not many records about this.”
“The empire was founded on the basis of the destruction of the elven kingdom, and the essence of the battle for the establishment of the empire is actually a battle between the gods.”
“The gods who are fighting for the battle are not others, but the Lord of Eternity. And the World Tree.”
“World Tree? Then… Isn’t it just…”
Roland’s eyes widened again.
“Yes, it is the goddess of life, under the crown of Eve.”
As he said, he sighed:
“The goddess of life is in contradiction with the Lord of Eternal.”
“I want to change the status quo of the empire and overthrow the current rule. If only as an eternal believer, it is just the human world. The civil war is nothing more.”
“But if I join the Fengyue Liberty, as a life believer, it will be a battle of faith…”
“Roland, in that case, the intensity of the war will be completely different.
” I hope to save, not destroy, the conflict between the true gods, the consequences are absolutely devastating… Especially the crown of the goddess of life and the eternal lord are the strongest among the gods.”
After listening to Frank’s words, Roland He opened his mouth and was speechless for a while.
After a while, he couldn’t help saying:
“But I think…you seem to love the Church of Life more and the teachings of the Church of Life more. I have seen you watch the “Sacred Book of Life” at night under the lights with relish, maybe You did not realize that, unlike the Eternal Lord, every time you mention the goddess of life, you are honorifics.”
“If this is the case, why can’t you establish a kingdom of faith in the church of life? Just like? Fengyue freely led like that.”
“The eternal church is so decayed, even if you re-establish the country, can it really change everything?”
” Not to mention, does the eternal church based on the nobility really allow you to overthrow the empire?”
Roland said loudly and let Frank. Fell silent.
After a while, he sighed:
“This is exactly what I want to say. The foundation of the empire is not only the nobility, but also the eternal church.”
“If you want to overthrow the empire, you must also get the support of the eternal church…”
” This is politics, and politics cannot take personal emotions into consideration.”
“Roland, although I don’t like the eternal church very much, although the eternal church has been decayed, there are still some saints who still maintain their original heart.
” I know this one, a true saint, respected by the world, even the Pope respects him very much.”
“He lived in seclusion in a village near the southern mountains, and waited until the devil was wiped out. I plan to visit each other and get their support.”
“Roland, I am also happy to build a country that believes in the church of life, but sometimes ideals and reality are different.”
“Eternal churches are disappointing, but they are not. There is absolutely no possibility of salvation…”
Frank said a lot of his own heartfelt feelings.
However, Roland frowned and shook his head slightly:
“But Sir Frank, are you really sure that the saints of the Eternal Church will support your approach?”
” Not to mention, even if you are worried about the Life Church and the Eternal Church. Go to war, and decide to choose the eternal church that you don’t like. Can you really be sure that the war between the two churches will not break out?”
“No, the Church of Life advocates peace and will not go to war against others for no reason. “
Frank shook his head.
“Then what if the eternal church goes to war first?”
Roland asked again.
Frank was startled.
He smiled bitterly and said:
“In that case… the Eternal Church is really hopeless…”
