James smiled and said, “I’ve known about Mr. Lee for quite some time, and I finally got to meet him today.”
The King smiled and asked, “What can I do for you this time?” “It’s nothing major.
It’s just that I’ve attacked the Tuckson family this time, and there will undoubtedly be a large number of people involved.
Besides that, mercenaries appeared in the Capital and were even using military weapons.
There’s something fishy about that.
I’m afraid there will be a major upheaval in the military region, so I specifically stopped by to give prior notice,” said James.
The King nodded and said, “Well, that’s to be expected.
Abide by the rules regardless of who is involved.
It’s time fora clean-up and for a significant replacement of personnel.
In fact, I’ve been wanting to take action for a while now, but there haven’t been any opportunities.
In addition, I was also concerned that if 1 took action against these people, the Capital would descend into chaos.” Mr. Lee did not say anything.
He just looked at James.
He was also contemplating and speculating.
‘What kind of a person is James, exactly?’ Was he truly a hero for his nation and his people, or was he just a man with ambition?
The King continued, “Do what you have to and I’ll take care of the rest.
I’ll look for suitable candidates as soon as possible to fill some of the vacant positions so that there won’t be a mess.”
James felt relieved after hearing the King’s words.
He stood up, looked at Mr. Lee, and said, “Mr. Lee, I’ll take my leave now.” “Hmm.” Mr. Lee then nodded gently.
James did not linger and quickly left.
After he left, the King then looked at Mr. Lee and asked, “What are you thinking about, Mr. Lee?” Mr. Lee responded, “I was wondering what James was thinking about.
Sometimes I can’t see right through him.
Everything he does is for the nation and its people.
He puts on an admirable front of devotion to righteousness and a lack of fear.
However, you can’t judge a book by its cover.
I’m unable to infer what he’s really thinking.” “Aren’t we going to ascend him to the throne?” asked the King.
“ If we’re having doubts about him now, what will happen later?” Mr. Lee gave a small wave of his hand and said, “He’ll have no trouble taking the throne.
It’s just that someone in a high- ranking position must consider the big picture.
James was too rash in light of the incident today.
He did not take the repercussions into account.
He seems to act independently and make decisions without consulting anyone else.” The King nodded gently and said, “You’re right.
Fortunately, it was successful.
If there had been a slip-up, the upheaval it would have caused would have been enormous.
Even though he had complete faith, it was still a bit of a gamble.
As a high-ranking official, he can’t make such a choice.
He can’t gamble with his decisions.” “Yes.
It appears that we’ll need to train someone else.
If James is really interested in this position, he’ll find a way to get rid of the newly revealed candidate and solidify his position in Sol.
If he has no interest, then he’ll work with the newcomer and sort everything out.” Mr. Lee said nonchalantly.
“James currently controls the military.
It’s not difficult for him to ascend to the throne if he wants to.
If the Black Dragon Army joins forces with the Red Flame Army to surround the Capital, he’ll be able to ascend to the throne,” said the King.
“That’s a bad plan,” said Mr. Lee.
“That’s just him being ambitious.
He’ll only do something like that if he loses the election.
Let’s first wait and see.
James did not make a move against Yaroslav this time, but now the Tucksons have been met with disaster.
Among those involved with the Tuckson family, there must be someone from Gu Sect.
We’ll see what Gu Sect does next.” Mr. Lee stood up as he said that.
“I’ll be going back, then.” Leaning back on the couch, the King lost himself in thought.
Mr. Lee had the idea of putting James on the throne very early on.
He, however, only wanted James to remove the dissidents.
James would be useless to him once he got rid of them.
He wanted to get rid of ancient martial artists, but he was an ancient martial artist himself.
Moreover, behind him was also a group of ancient martial artists.
The King watched the back of Mr. Lee as he left, and his brows began to furrow.
James, on the other hand, was also ruminating and contemplating after he left Peace Mansion.
He was thinking about Mr. Lee’s identity and his background.
However, he did not know anything about Mr. Lee at the moment, and could not make any educated guesses yet.
He took a deep breath and put his thoughts aside.
Then he took out his phone and contacted Madelyn Gabriel.
Soon the phone was connected and Madelyn’s voice rang out, “ Emperor, I’ve spoken to you about the incident today.
I must say, you have a lot of guts.
The Tucksons have been well-established in the Capital for a century and they’re connected in an intricate web of relationships.
When you make a move against the Tucksons, many people and families in the Capital will get involved.” “1 don’t need instructions from you on how to do things.
I just want a list of the Gu Sect members’ names.” James was about to make his move, but first, he needed to know how many of the individuals connected to the Tuckson family were actually members of Gu Sect.
“The list of the names is ready, so I’ll send it to you.
Please remember to check it.
Also, before you take any action, you have to kill Mr. Gabriel first.
Otherwise, when you act, you’ ll be affecting the interests of many people, and it’s impossible for Mr. Gabriel to not intervene.
Now all he wants to do is fake his death, hide, and stop caring about these things.” “Alright.
I’ll work out a detailed plan as soon as possible.” After James ended the call, he immediately rushed to the Emperor’s Mansion.
He needed to meet with Maxine to discuss and devise a comprehensive plan.
