Miracle Throne Chapter 575
The West Sea City’s City Lord’s birthday banquet, it was the city’s greatest celebration and the most important holiday!
Every West Sea City citizen and outsider were all wearing extravagant clothes with their own race’s style to it. Large amounts of delicacies were being brought into the harbour by boats while colourful fireworks lit up the sky. The crystal lamps were like flowers blooming in the city, as the sounds of singing and the scent of fragrant meat drifted through the city.
The City Lord’s five hundredth birthday was much more important than any previous year.
West Sea City was not as rich as Dragon City because West Sea City had only been built for a few hundred years. The Dragon Lord Death Wing Nidhogg was an ancient dragon who had lived over ten thousand years, this accumulated time was not easy to surpass. However, West Sea City’s liveliness did not lose to any city of the Forest of Chaos. The giant harbour was a trade center of the Western Sea, allowing various countries to trade through it, so the turnover each day was a shocking number.
West Sea City progressed with each day and just based on the trade ships, they could become the most prosperous area in the region. In the future, it wasn’t impossible to surpass the accumulated wealth of Dragon City. It was because of West Sea City’s developed trade routes that when West Sea City’s City Lord was holding a celebration banquet, various sides came to offer expensive gifts.
This annual banquet in West Sea City became an important moment in creating relations.
Old Mo brought Chu Tian into West Sea City’s magnificent Merpeople Palace. Chu Tian already knew that the controlling power in West Sea City were the Merpeople, which was a rare Sea Race and a mysterious race. In the age Chu Tian lived in, the Merpeople had already gone extinct.
The banquet officially began.
The hall in the Merpeople Palace could hold several thousand people and the guests were separated based on their rank. Old Mo was just a well known merchant, so he was considered one of the lowest ranking people and was seated at the most remote area.
“The City Lord is here!”
The conch bugles sounded out loud and clear!
Several dozen beautiful mermaid servants came out in two rows. The audience heard the sound of a wave and it was like being on an island while being surrounded by giant waves that could submerge the island at any moment.
Everyone knew that these weren’t real waves, but rather the aura released by an expert who was at least in the 6th Heaven Domain Layer. This expert would be considered an expert even placed on the continent and the entire West Sea City only had one of those, the City Lord.
But what surprised everyone was that behind the powerful aura, it was actually short and wrinkled old lady with greying hair.
“It can’t be, this is West Sea City’s City Lord?” Chu Tian saw the wrinkled old lady with greying hair and called out in a surprised voice, “Wasn’t the legendary West Sea City’s City Lord a beautiful mermaid? Why is it this old lady!”
“You, you, you…..” Old Mo almost fainted in fear. He quickly looked around before saying to Chu Tian, “Do you not want to live?”
Chu Tian shrugged his shoulders and said, “What are you afraid of? She can’t hear anyway!”
Old Mo suddenly regretted bringing this fellow in, “How high of a position does the West Sea City’s City Lord have? Can you confirm that she can’t hear us?”
“I’m afraid sir City Lord is on the verge of death.”
“What nonsense are you saying?”
Chu Tian’s eyes focused and didn’t have any taunting look at all, “The Merpeople have long lives, with normal Merpeople living around four-five hundred years and Heaven Domain Expert’s having double that time. Merpeople look young most of their lives and only when their lives reach the end will they quickly age. The City Lord is only five hundred years old and looks this old, it’s most likely she was injured and is now spending most of her energy suppressing those injuries. How could she have the mind to listen to what we are speaking?”
“Nonsense, don’t speak nonsense!” Old Mo’s nose was almost crooked from his rage, “Don’t care about this! If you keep acting like this, I’ll drive you out!”
“Alright, alright, I understand!” Chu Tian rolled his eyes, knowing it was hard to convince him. Since father is here, you still want to chase me out? So he said in a discourteous voice, “An old man like you is really wordy!”
The old City Lord slowly sat down and the banquet officially began.
“The Dragon Hawk Chamber of Commerce sends five hundred Five Coloured Star Drills, wishing the West Sea City’s City Lord well wishes!”
“The Great Origin Country Chamber of Commerce sends ten dragon pelts, wishing the West Sea City’s City Lord well wishes!”
The various guests offered their expensive gifts and all manner of dazzling gifts piled in the main hall. There were several Immortal Grade items in there and even with Old Mo’s hard to find item, it would only be considered a middle grade gift.
But even so, people were still amazed by Old Mo.
To be to give a level three Half Step Immortal Herb, this was not something any merchant could do. It depended on great strength and great chance.
Old Mo was filled with excitement. To attract the attention of these people was very important to him. This banquet was not just about showing off, it was also important to meet people that he normally couldn’t meet. A merchant’s business increased proportionally with their connections.
Chu Tian now knew that West Sea City was actually this powerful.
These people that came to give gifts, they were all top companies of the continent. There were also many kingdoms among them, going from small kingdoms to large kingdoms, even having one-two warring kingdoms. Chu Tian never would have thought that these kingdoms and companies would come this far to trade with West Sea City.
When the atmosphere became lively, a voice suddenly sounded out and the surrounding audience was pushed out.
“The Big Dry Empire’s protecting Sage Yuwen Xi brings one hundred soul contracting weapons and twenty level three Immortal Herbs, wishing the West Sea City’s City Lord best wishes!”
Everyone was shocked hearing this.
The Big Dry Empire’s protecting Sage Yuwen Xi, he actually personally came to West Sea City to present a gift?
To be able to become an empire level power on the continent, how could they be normal people? The Big Dry Empire was one of the most powerful human kingdoms, this powerful existence could casually destroy five-eight warring kingdoms!
Yuwen Xi was the Big Dry Empire’s protecting Sage, while also being the Imperial Tutor. He had a high and important position, perhaps even the kings of normal kingdoms would bow to him. Now he had personally come to congratulate the West Sea City’s City Lord on their birthday? This is giving the West Sea City’s City Lord quite a bit of face!
The old City Lord’s half narrowed eyes suddenly opened, “Sir Sage’s gift is too heavy. This old lady is just a trivial City Lord, how could I take the Big Dry Empire’s gift?”
“Ha, ha, ha!” A mature and powerful laughter filled the hall, “Governor Bo Sha was one of the four governors of the Deep Blue Empire, how can you not take this old man’s trivial gift?”
When these words were said.
There was a powerful aura released in the hall that was like a roaring flame spreading in all directions, instantly pushing away most of the old City Lord’s aura. There was an old man covered in light that walked onto the stage and each step made the light brighter. It was like looking at an immortal descending upon the earth.
Chu Tian understood that this was the Domain Power of a Heaven Domain Expert, those not in the Heaven Domain Realm couldn’t resist it at all.
This was the famous Yuwen Xu?
A Sage was a scholar’s conferred title.
A scholar that could be conferred as a Sage was a peak talent in this era. Not to mention that Yuwen Xi was a Heaven Domain Expert, one that wasn’t weaker than the West Sea City’s City Lord, truly worthy of being the Big Dry Empire’s Imperial Tutor!
What was even more shocking was what Yuwen Xi said, the West Sea City’s City Lord could be from the Deep Blue Empire!
Chu Tian was a bit confused, “Is the Deep Blue Empire very famous?”
“You don’t even know about the Deep Blue Empire?” Old Mo said with knit brows, “The Deep Blue Empire was the biggest and richest empire in the Western Sea, but it fell apart from a civil strife a hundred years ago. It has already turned into several powers and Deep Blue only exists in name. It’s said that the Deep Blue Empire had four governors, who would have thought that the West Sea City’s City Lord was one of them? This news is just too shocking!”
How strong was the Deep Blue Empire in the past?
No one thought it would fall from civil strife!
Because of the collapse of the Deep Blue Empire, the entire Western Sea’s powers fell into chaos, with only the Western Sea’s coast being relatively peaceful. Who would have thought that the West Sea City’s City Lord was one of the powerful governors of the Deep Blue Empire? Perhaps people wouldn’t believe it if it was said by someone else, but people didn’t have a reason to not believe if it came from Yuwen Xi.
What kind of position did Yuwen Xi have? How could he speak nonsense!
A cold glow flashed in old City Lord Bo Sha’s eyes as they went back to their half closed original state. After a few coughs, she said, “Imperial Tutor Yuwen has come to my West Sea City, I’m afraid it’s not just to reveal this old lady’s identity. Deep Blue no longer exists, is there anything else you’re not satisfied with?”
“City Lord is mistaken!” Yuwen Xi gave a few quick laughs as he kept coming forward. Each step caused the pressure on Bo Sha to become a bit stronger. Before the guards could even come over, they were all pressed down. Yuwen Xi said in a forceful and gentle voice, “This old man has come on the Big Dry Emperor’s order to ask for marriage from West Sea City!”
Chu Tian was completely stunned, it wouldn’t be for this old lady, right? The Big Dry Emperor’s tastes are a little too heavy.
Yuwen Xi continued to say, “It’s said that Deep Blue had a pure blooded Princess Bo who Governor Bo Sha took away to raise and now she has become a nation collapsing beauty. The Big Dry Emperor is lacking a concubine and wishes to marry the Deep Blue princess. West Sea City will now have the Big Dry Empire’s protection and we can even help West Sea City rebuild the Deep Blue Empire of the past!”
“Impossible!” Bo Sha didn’t even think as she rejected it, “This old lady has to reject the Big Dry Emperor’s good will, it is impossible for the Deep Blue Empire’s princess to marry into the Big Dry Empire. You can give up on this!”
