Chapter 473 Alerting The Enemy
Why did it end up involving a crisis of faith?
Previously, Larissa had regarded Empyrean Lord as a deity. However, upon discovering that Emrys was indeed Empyrean Lord, her faith not only remained intact but grew even stronger.
In short, she believed Emrys was speaking nonsense but didn’t know how to argue against it.
Emrys earnestly stated, “It is indeed a serious matter. Just remember not to reveal my identity casually, understand?”
As Emrys continued speaking, his tone unintentionally became
Larissa pouted and said, “Alright, alright, I won’t speak then. Why are you being so harsh with me… Wait, Rys, you’re quite brave to scold me, huh?”
Initially, Larissa had projected Emrys as Empyrean Lord, which naturally made her feel somewhat intimidated. However, upon reflection, she realized that he was nothing more than her little brother.
Larissa’s confidence surged as she glared at Emrys.
Emrys’ expression fell when he noticed this. He had just managed to restore the prestige of Empyrean Lord, only for Larissa to effortlessly overshadow it.
In fact, Emrys had anticipated this situation long ago.
Before the seven women knew he was Empyrean Lord, they held him in high esteem, considering him a mythical figure.
However, after discovering his true identity, they may have been initially shocked, but as time passed, they found it to be nothing extraordinary and even sought to control him.
Who doesn’t have a bit of vanity?
In this world, what could be more prideful and honorable than having Empyrean Lord under their command?
Indeed, it echoed the saying, “Men conquer the world to win over women, while women conquer men to rule the world.” It was a profound sense of accomplishment.
Emrys had no choice but to surrender, raising his hands and exclaiming, “Alright, I admit it, I am just your little brother. Long live Issa!”
When they returned to the office, Hazel and Vaughn looked at them with peculiar expressions. Their interaction was not as simple as that of ordinary siblings.
After all, Larissa was just Emrys’ godsister.
However, both Hazel and Emrys tacitly avoided bringing up the previous topic, as if that scene had never occurred.
Both parties engaged in casual conversation.
It wasn’t until the end was near, and Larissa was momentarily distracted, that Hazel managed to approach Emrys. Her voice
carried a hint of coldness as she said, “For your own sake and Larissa’s, it would be best if you leave Jipsdale as soon as possible.”
Emrys chuckled and replied, “I will certainly keep your advice in mind, Ms. Mapleton. I will depart quietly.”
Emrys deliberately emphasized the words “quietly.”
Hazel’s brows furrowed slightly. She snorted and muttered, “He must have a death wish!”
Emrys’ mood had completely changed since he first arrived at the Jipsdale Martial Arts Academy and left Hazel’s office.
He had a strong premonition that the truth of his origins, a mystery even the underworld couldn’t unravel, was getting closer and closer.
At such a moment, even the most composed person would struggle to remain calm.
Emrys took a deep breath, suppressing the turmoil in his heart. He decided to start from Jipsdale. He hadn’t allowed Larissa to reveal his identity earlier for a reason.
He didn’t want to alert the enemy too soon.
Unaware of Emrys’ thoughts, Larissa eagerly guided him around the campus once again. As they walked leisurely, she entertained him with amusing stories from her time as a student.
