Only then did Thea’s restlessness subside.
“I’m going out for a while.” James got to his feet and left the Emperor’s Mansion, making his way through the night to the Red Flame Army’s base.
Henry was stationed at the Red Flame Army’s base. Office.
“Did you rush over at this hour for something, Sir?” Henry asked, standing in front of James.
“Did something happen?” Henry had known James for many years.
James had a solemn expression on his face from the moment he walked into the office, so he knew something must have happened.
“Yes,” James answered, “Something did occur.
This time, I went after the Tuckson family.
My next actions will also be against some people’s interests.
So, they couldn’t take it any longer and abducted Quincy, Tiara, Lex Callahan, and the others from Cansington.
They want me to leave the Capital and head to Mt.
Thunder.” Henry was stunned.
“Mt. Thunder Pass in the Southern Plains?” he asked.
James shook his head and said, “No.
During this time, you were in the Southern Plains.
You’re also unaware of what I’ve been through.” James did not elaborate much, as he was running out of time.
Besides, he could not give a clear explanation either.
He instructed, “There isn’t anyone in the Red Flame Army that I can totally trust.
While I’m away, keep an eye out when you’re in the military region.
Make sure there are no mishaps.
Before I leave, I’ll transfer you from the Southern Plains to the Capital, and your rank will be raised to three stars.” “Mr. Caden, this requires a tripartite review to be approved…” James waved his hand slightly, interrupting Henry.
He said, “I understand that this requires a tripartite review, but I also have the authority to promote you.
I’ll first transfer you over, and you’ll be temporarily in command of the Red Flame Army.
The formalities can be handled later.
Until the new year, all you have to do is to keep the military region out of disarray.” “Alright.” Henry nodded.
“Alright, you may leave.” Henry turned around and left.
Then, James made a call again for Nathaniel.
Soon, Nathaniel appeared in the office.
“Emperor…” Nathaniel had a mischievous grin on his face, but when he saw James’ solemn expression, he too became solemn.
“ Sir, is something wrong?” He had to ask.
“T will transfer Henry from the Southern Plains иσνєℓєвσσк.¢σм to the Capital, and promote his rank from one star to three stars.
He’ll be in command of the Red Flame Army for the time being.” Nathaniel furrowed his brows slightly and said, “I’m afraid that’s a bit difficult, sir.
To be approved, it needs to go through a tripartite review.
The military brass will almost certainly not approve or agree to this.” “Pay no attention to them.
I’ll deal with them once I get back.” James’ expression darkened.
Those people were, to varying degrees, problematic.
“T’m going to leave the Capital tomorrow morning.
Please assist Henry during my absence.
The Capital must not devolve into chaos.
If you have to make any difficult decisions, remember to inform me.
Also, for the time being, put off dealing with the Tuckson family.
Simply detain Halvor and let the other irrelevant Tuckson family members go for now.” “Sir, you’re leaving?” Nathaniel was taken aback.
“Yes. There was a bit of a mishap, so I’m going to settle it.
Remember, if anyone puts pressure on you to release Halvor, don’t give in.
The Red Flame Army has complete authority over this matter, and no other department is allowed to intervene.” “Yes, I understand.” Nathaniel nodded.
You may leave.” James gave a small wave of his hand.
Nathaniel turned around and left as well.
He had no idea what had happened, but since James had attacked the Tuckson family, he could only assume it was something major.
The Tuckson family was intertwined in a complex web of relationships.
There were too many people involved.
To attack one of them is to attack all.
James was in the military region, making a series of arrangements.
After the arrangements were in order, he traveled through the night to the courthouse.
He looked at the Blade of Justice, иσνєℓєвσσк.¢σм walked over, and picked it up.
With the Blade of Justice in hand, he turned around and left.
“No matter who they are, if they dare to touch them, I’ll never let them get away with it.” James exuded a chilling, murderous intent.
