The city lord of Jadeite City, Duan Yuan, was currently seated in the conference hall as he listened to his subordinates’ analysis of the Moonshine Tribe elves’ situation. The gentle and beautiful female elf seated beside him was Duan Yuan’s daughter, Duan Xue.
"There’s still room for discussion about the Moonshine Tribe. Since they insist that an elf traded with them, I think it’s better to continue with the investigation," a young elf said.
"What’s there to investigate? We’ve been guarding the entrance of the Moonshine Trading House for so many days, but we’ve come up empty handed. We didn’t even see that mythical beast they mentioned. Besides, I don’t think mythical beasts would help elves. It’s more likely that they would help humans." The older elf clearly did not have a favorable impression of the Moonshine Tribe elves.
Duan Yuan felt a headache as he listened. The Moonshine Tribe was once one of the highest-ranked tribes, and they had a rather high reputation in the Moon God Continent. It was not until after the incident with the Saintess that their reputation was greatly damaged. Later on, they were demoted and dealt with for some special reasons.
However, as a matter of fact, Duan Yuan had interacted with the elves of the Moonshine Tribe several times, and he felt that they were simple-minded. It was hard to associate them with the word ‘traitor’.
"Didn’t they say that the mythical beast would only come once in a while? How long have we waited? It’s not appropriate to convict them so blindly." The young elf disagreed with his senior.
The older elf said, "Why don’t you tell me which elf you know is on good terms with a magical beast? Not to mention it’s a mythical beast with extremely high intelligence. Moreover, the elves of the Moonshine Tribe have a close relationship with humans, and isn’t that mixed-race in their tribe the best proof?"
"These two things cannot be mixed together!" the young elf angrily said.
Duan Yuan sighed. Just as he was about to say something, the elves guarding outside rushed in in a panic.
"Reporting to the city lord! There is a mythical beast requesting to see you." The guard hastily reported the news. In fact, the news had been filtered by him.
It had to be known that the mythical beast’s original words were not so polite.
He directly told Duan Yuan to get lost and meet him!
"Could it be the mythical beast that the Moonshine Tribe mentioned?" The elves in the conference room were puzzled.
Duan Yuan immediately stood up and headed out of the mansion. Before he stepped out of the gates, a wave of heat assaulted his face and the blazing flames burned all the way to the mansion before disappearing in an instant along with the surging heatwave.
Alarmed, Duan Yuan hastened his steps.
Outside the city lord’s mansion of Jadeite City, two petite figures were standing upright.
A cute little boy with red hair and scarlet flames on his face stood with his hands on his hips. He opened his mouth and spat out flames at the gates of the mansion.
The little elf standing beside the cute little boy had a calm expression on her face. She did not feel that what they had done was earth-shattering.
The moment Duan Yuan stepped out the door, he saw that the cute little lad was prepared to spew out another sea of fire. Cold sweat dripped down from his forehead as he hastily said, "I am the City Lord of Jadeite City, Duan Yuan. I wonder why this mythical beast would try to burn down the city lord’s estate?"
Accompanied by Duan Yuan’s cry of surprise, the little boy raised his eyebrows and swallowed back the flame he had spat out. He then arrogantly looked at Duan Yuan who was drenched in cold sweat and impolitely said.
"You don’t know? You’ve taken my little girl’s jewels and even deducted her money. I’m being very polite to not burn you into ashes!"
