Chapter 1255 - 1255: He's The Thief

Report Chapter

"Apparently he won the scholarship competition of the Royal Family. Since the Princess was pleased with his performance, she gave him this token. This is the only reason someone like him can afford to stay in this place," the guard informed the General. 

"Is that so? To win the favor of Mimi, who is most talented amongst the Royal Heirs... You must not be bad. How many booms did you cause?" Western General asked, amused. 

"Two booms," Long Chen replied. 

"Only two?" Western General exclaimed, smiling wryly. "That's all? That's your performance that stunned her?"

"She said it was because I was able to cause two booms despite coming from a poor background with no resources to cultivate," Long Chen explained. 

"Ah, that's true. I forgot this test was for poor people of the Empire. So two booms aren't that bad," the Western General nodded as he returned the ring to Long Chen.

" Where are you actually from?" Western General asked. 

"I'm from Xie City," Long Chen said, giving the random city name.

" Xie City? Have you heard about Xie Lian? How is he doing?" Western General asked, amused. 

' That trick won't work on me, big guy,' Long Chen thought, smiling. 

" Xie Lian? I haven't heard that name. Is he from the Great Xie Clan? I only heard the name of our City Leader, Xie Mantian. I don't know anyone else," Long Chen replied, realizing that this guy was testing if Long Chen was actually from the city of Xie. 

"That's true. You wouldn't know him. You can go back," the Western General nodded, telling Long Chen to go back. 

Long Chen turned around and went back to his room. 

"Did you find anything?" Capital Wang asked the Western General.

"I did. We have our thief in front of us," The Western General let out, smiling. 

"What do you mean?" Captain Wang asked, confused. 

"I think we both know what I mean. The last guy that just left. He's the thief," The Western General exclaimed. 

"The one with the token from the Princess? He's the thief? How do you know it?" Captain Wang asked, surprised. 

He couldn't find anything odd in their conversation that could prove that Long Chen was the thief. He wondered why this guy felt that way. 

"This guy... He was present inside the Royal Treasury last night. I'm sure of it," the Western General exclaimed. 

"How do you know that?" Captain Wang asked. 

Western General raised his hand as he said, "Do you see this Silver Ring?" 

"Yeah? What about it?" Captain Wang inquired.

"It's not actually my ring. It's something that I borrowed from the Royal Treasury. This is a treasure which trapped the auras of the people that entered the treasury in the last twenty-four hours."

"It's specialty is that it shines a little when it comes in contact with that aura. I was checking the rings, but I was also making them touch the ring to see if any of the aura matched."

"It only lit up when it touched that guy's ring. His ring contained his aura, so it's simple to guess. He is a thief... Or there is a small chance that he isn't the thief, but he hugged the thief. That's the only way he would have the thief's aura," the Western General commented.
