Lord of Flames - Chapter 157
Chapter 157: A Powerful decision! Overwhelming Curiosity!
“Thank you, the Great Lord of Flames! For your generosity and kindness. For giving us a place to live and for giving us delicious food.”
In the streets of the City of Miracles, an older cat lady was praying.
The cat clan was now responsible for the security of the City of Miracles.
That was because the cat warriors walked lightly, had good physical strength and a better personality.
In fact, there was no need to look after the security of the City of Miracles.
Most of the time, the work content of these cat warriors was something like:
A child’s toy fell down the drain, they went down to pick it up.
Some old man was lost. They helped him to go back home.
After all, the City of Miracles was so big that it was not uncommon for some older orcs to get lost.
“These people are really pious!”
After hearing her prayer, princess Luo Ying said.
The sword girl, Ning Cui, nodded and said.
“Yes, Princess. We’ve often seen the Orcs praying everywhere, because their belief in the Lord of the Flames is very deep.”
The princess looked around. She was at a cross street; the sun was shining brightly. The sidewalk was wide and neat. The middle of the road, which was made up of some unknown material, was very smooth. She had heard from a palace maid that it was concrete.
There was a wide green belt between the sidewalk and the building behind, which was full of flowers.
It was a very simple street scene in the City of Miracles, but to Princess Luo Ying it was indescribably beautiful.
Streets like these were rare even in the capital of the Xi Ling Kingdom.
Princess Luo Ying said: “Ning Cui, have you noticed that there are no beggars, swindlers, thieves and rascals here. The faces of the orcs here are full of energy. And the faces of the elderly here show no sign of worries at all. Even in our cities, something like this has never happened before.”
Ning Cui said, “Yes, princess. If it weren’t for the various orcs features on them, I would have found it hard to believe that such a city could exist in the land of orcs.”
The princess looked toward the cat lady, who had just finished praying. After she finished praying, the old cat lady had continued to do her work:
She was pulling the few weeds out of the green belt.
This was not the work assigned to her by others, but it was a voluntary effort. No wonder it was hard to see weeds in the greenery.
“They really like this city.”
Thought Princess Luo Ying.
After walking around in the City of Miracles for more than half a day, she was more and more shocked.
Sometimes, the details were more revealing.
Even though the city was magnificent and wide, it had shocked the princess at first.
But now she was shocked to the core.
Because the Orc’s life in this city was simply too good.
The young orcs were all full of energy. Their faces were full of hope for the future.
Older orcs’ faces were not like the Xi Ling Kingdom’s older people’s faces, which were full of worries.
They were worried about the life they were living, because they weren’t even sure if they’d get to eat the next meal. Or maybe the meal they just ate was going to be their last meal.
This showed that the city was not in vain. It did not just look good!
It showed that the Orc Kingdom was doing better than the Xi Ling Kingdom.
Princess Luo Ying was curious to know how this city had developed so well.
Wasn’t it said that the Orcs were bad at planting, and had no eating manners?
Wasn’t it said that the Orcs were aggressive, and the Orcs often died during their gatherings?
Wasn’t it said that the Orcs hated sanitation, their cities and their homes stunk?
Not only was it said that the orcs were difficult to manage, the orc kingdom was also said to be incomparably chaotic?
Until now, Princess Luo Ying found that all the rumours about the Orc kingdom that were spread in the Xi Ling Kingdom were all lies!
But those claims were not without source!
Some powerful humans once traveled through the Orc Kingdom, and there was even a bard of considerable strength who once came through the Misty Mountains to this side. He wrote about the Orc Kingdom in his poems, which were then widely spread in the Xi Ling Kingdom.
In other words, the claims about the Orc Kingdom in the Xi Ling Kingdom were actually based on facts and were accurate.
“The change in the Orc Kingdom should have started with the appearance of the Lord of Flames.”
Princess Luo Ying suddenly thought.
In the City of Miracles, there were symbols of flames everywhere.
Street lights, trash cans, the middle of the house, chairs on the street.
Even on the floor tiles, at regular intervals, there were symbols of flames.
This was indeed the kingdom of the Lord of Flames!
The princess felt that the Lord of Flames was the one who brought the change in the orc kingdom. Otherwise, these Orcs alone wouldn’t be able to make such almost miraculous progress.
Her heart was already filled with curiosity about the Lord of Flame.
“Granny, can you tell me about the Lord of Flames’ deeds?”
After walking a few more blocks, Princess Luo Ying saw a fox lady sitting on a bench by the roadside, sunbathing.
This fox lady was very old.
Hearing Princess Luo Ying’s words, the fox lady looked up at her. She was thinking about her race.
Many of the older foxes had never seen a human before.
Princess Luo Ying revealed a smile and said: “I admire the great Lord of Flames very much. Right now, we are here to give a gift to your country.”
Looking at the sincere smile of Princess Luo Ying, the older fox lady finally spoke up.
The deeds of the Lord of Flames were not a secret in the Yan Nation. In fact, the temple was happy to have the deeds of the Lord of Flame recited.
By now, the entire Yan Nation had over two million orcs. They knew that the Lord of Flames sent down miracles and revelations to help the queen establish the Yan Nation step by step and were quite familiar with these deeds.
The foxes and cats who were good at singing and dancing had even made up a large drama, which was staged every day in a square to the east of the shrine. It was watched by tens of thousands of people every day.
It was quite like the snowy night encounter.
The Lord of Flame had chosen the Queen as his Holy Saint, so he sent down his power on the rainy night to help the Queen through the tough times.
For example, the time when they fought with the Black Fox Clan and defeated them.
The Lord of Flames’ chosen holy maiden, Meng Ying, who was a second rank magician, was sent to kill the black fox patriarch. That’s how the fox clan defeated the black fox and unified the entire fox tribe.
This kind of drama, which took place for a few hours, was a spontaneous behavior of some orcs, and the fox girl Qing Ling also did not stop it.
This elderly fox lady knew quite a lot of details. The great Lord of the Flames’ deeds were told to the princess one by one, and Princess Luo Ying listened to it with great interest.
After listening to these stories, Princess Luo Ying’s curiosity hadn’t decreased, but increased.
The royal family had a lot of books. Princess Luo Ying was always curious about the gods when she was a child. Through the royal family’s collection of books, she had obtained knowledge about the deeds of many heavenly gods.
But the Lord of Flames seemed to be quite different from all those heavenly gods she ever knew!
By the time Princess Luo Ying finished listening, it was already dark.
“Princess, the dinner is about to start, let’s go back.”
The royal palace attendant said.
Princess Luo Ying nodded and started walking back.
At this time, the streetlights on both sides of the street lit up neatly.
This was a very common scene that happened when the night fell before Lin Yan crossed over, but such a scene shocked Princess Luo Ying.
The entire City of Miracles, under the decoration of these street lamps, became a brightly lit city that never sleeps!
This was the night scene!
In contrast, the capital city of the Xi Ling Kingdom had a curfew at night, and the lights of the entire city were scattered. Only the royal palace and the church had numerous lights lit by magical flames. Compared to the streetlights spread throughout the city of Miracles, Xi Ling Kingdom was simply not on the same level.
“Princess, the city is so beautiful at night!”
Next to Princess Luo Ying, the sword girl, Ning Cui, was dumbfounded.
Originally, she thought that the City of Miracles in the day was beautiful enough.
But she realized that the City of Miracles at night, under the glow of streetlights, was truly beautiful!
“Ning Cui, let’s stay here for a few days before we go back.”
Princess Luo Ying suddenly decided to stay a little longer.
This city was too beautiful to be described, and it had completely attracted Princess Luo Ying. At the same time, she also wanted to learn more about the Lord of Flames’ deeds.
