Chapter 992: Twilight City (10)
“Its still early, perhaps they are still preparing.” Yang Xi was thinking positively.
“I hope so.” Qi Xia pondered.
However, that hope did not last until nightfall.
Shen Yanxiao and the others were prepared to have lunch on their own when they saw a man in the uniform of the Twilight City Guards hurrying over.
“City Lord Shen, the City Lord invites you to a banquet tonight.” The guard handed a gilded invitation to Shen Yanxiao.
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrows and looked at the sky; it was already dark outside the pavilion.
Looking at the time written on the invitation, she could guess that the banquet had already begun.
Nangong Mengmeng stretched her head out to look at the invitation and her expression immediately darkened.
“The City Lord of Twilight City is too much.
It will probably take half an hour to get from here to the City Lords Mansion.
You only sent the invitation when the banquet had started.
I wonder how you do things here in Twilight City.” Nangong Mengmeng was already furious at Twilight City for neglecting Shen Yanxiao.
Now that she saw the late invitation, the anger in her heart surged.
Firstly, it was the dilapidated accommodation.
Then, they deliberately sent the banquet invitation late.
Werent they simply making things difficult for Shen Yanxiao
The guard said with an awkward expression, “Well… please forgive me.
Look at me, dont I look like I have sent the invitation here in a hurry The City Lord of the Fantasy Devil City, Geng Di, and the City Lord of Blizzard City, Long Fei, have only arrived in the afternoon.
And by the time we had arranged their stay, it was already getting late.”
You sent it over in a hurry Nangong Mengmeng narrowed her eyes and looked at the guards relaxed face.
There was no trace of redness or sweat on his face.
He was clearly taking his time walking over here.
She wanted to speak out, but was stopped by Shen Yanxiao.
“Well be there shortly,” Shen Yanxiao said with an indifferent expression.
“Yes.” The guard answered respectfully and swaggered away.
Nangong Mengmengs eyes were spitting fire.
She wished she could slap him.
“Teacher, why are you being so mild-tempered He casually came up with a reason, and you believed him Look at how slow and unhurried he is.
Does he look like someone who is diligent in his work Besides, doesnt the City Lord know that our accomodation is very far from the City Lords Mansion Even if he were to send someone to deliver a letter, is there any reason for him to send such a person over Even if he was going to be late, he should have at least come with a horse.” Even though Nangong Mengmeng was naive, Twilight Citys actions were so obvious that even she understood the situation.
There was no need to mention Shen Yanxiao.
Shen Yanxiao was neither happy nor angry.
She just looked at the five beasts and asked, “What do you think”
Qi Xia waved his white jade fan and propped his chin lazily.
“They have already used the two city lords as an excuse.
What else can it mean”
The guards seemed very polite, but his words and actions were full of loopholes.
People from Fantasy Devil City and Blizzard City had come.
Even if they wanted to make arrangements for their accomodation, they did not need to mobilize all the soldiers in the Twilight City, so it was inexcusable to only send one guard to them.
Besides, when Shen Yanxiao and the others entered the city, only a middle-aged man was there to lead them.
He then quickly left them to fend for themselves after a few parting words.
What arrangements were they talking about
“Evidently, Duan Hen is using Geng Di and Long Fei to pressure you.
So what if he makes it clear that he does not value you After all, the relationship between the three City Lords is different from yours.
Moreover, you had a disagreement with Geng Di and no one knows about your relationship with Long Fei.
They must think no one is on your side.”
