Lord of the Oasis - Chapter 813 - Chapter 865-868
Chapter 865: Mission thrown in front of him
“Your Highness, put on your coat. The Night is humid.”Abel, who had arrived later, noticed the quiet and sad atmosphere at the scene. He bowed and walked to Kant’s side and whispered to him.
“Yes.”Kant came back to his senses. He turned his head and glanced at Abel. He responded softly and nodded.
Abel carefully put on the sheepskin coat for Kant. Then, he retreated to the side.
“Bunduk, add more firewood to the fireplace in the room.”Kant raised his head and told Bunduk, “Go to the kitchen downstairs and get some.”
“Yes.”Bunduk nodded. Then, he walked to the fireplace to check the iron barrel that placed the firewood. When he found that there was not much firewood left, he threw the remaining firewood into the fire. He told Kant that he was going downstairs to get firewood.
“I’ll go with you.”Seeing that Bunduk was already near the entrance, Abel hurriedly said.
Bunduk was stunned and stood in place. After getting Kant’s permission, Abel first unlocked the door and walked out.
“Wait for me.”Bunduk picked up the metal barrel and followed him out of the door.
After the two left, only Kant and turubin were left in the room.
The firewood in the main hall was burning more and more vigorously, and the temperature in the room also rose.
After turubin sorted out his emotions, he took off his gloves. He said to Kant, “I’m Sorry, Your Majesty. I’ve made a fool of myself.”
“It’s okay.”Kant had an encouraging smile on his face. He waved his hand and said.
“The people of the supervision center haven’t found out where Jackie is hiding yet.”Trubin’s eyes became moist again, he said, “I really can’t believe that he would do such a thing. Maybe I shouldn’t have adopted him seven years ago.”

After hearing Trubin’s words, Kant fell silent.
In the world that he had experienced in his previous life, it had become the consensus of everyone not to interfere with other people’s lives. People were originally insignificant. It was very difficult for them to interfere with other people’s destinies when they were receiving the blessings of God.
Before coming to this world, Kant had always had the attitude that ‘other people’s matters have nothing to do with me’. However, after coming to this world with the memories of his previous life, his values were gradually loosening.
Perhaps he didn’t know himself as well as he had imagined.
“Those bastards who bullied Jackie have already been sent away by me,”Turubin said angrily. “I absolutely can not let such people continue to stay in the inn.”
“Yes.”Kant nodded slightly. “They deserve this kind of result.”
“Your Highness, we are back.”Bunduk, who was carrying half a barrel of firewood, and Abel, who had accompanied him, stood at the entrance and greeted Kant.
“Come in quickly.”Kant waved his hand and said, “It should be quite cold outside.”
“It is indeed a bit cold.”Bunduk put the Iron Tong by the fireplace, rubbed his hands and replied.
“When we went downstairs, we found that many of the guests’rooms were still lit by candlesticks. I guess everyone didn’t Sleep well tonight,”Abel reported.
“The waiter in the kitchen told me that this month’s firewood had been used up in advance. “He said that we should take the opportunity to store more firewood. “We have to make it through the last two days.”Bunduk grinned. “Then, I ordered the soldier who was still awake to go to his place to get firewood.”
Abel quickly gave Bunduk a look, indicating that the owner of the inn was still here.
“Oh, OH, no.”Bunduk covered his mouth and quickly explained, “The waiter told me…”
“It’s my fault that the people under me didn’t take the initiative to tell me when something happened,”turubin interrupted Bunduk’s clarification and said.
“We still have to find a suitable candidate to replace the position of the cashier,”Kant tried to smooth things over. “Otherwise, if these waiters encounter any trouble, I don’t know who to talk to.”
“I usually don’t pay much attention to the people in this inn. Fellett has always been busy with hiring people. Where can we find a suitable candidate now?”Trubin said in distress.
The four people in the main hall fell into deep thought, and the atmosphere became quiet again.
“Boss, we have been staying in this inn for quite a long time.”Kant suggested, “Otherwise, we will pay more attention to you in the following days. “See if we can find a candidate?”
“Okay,”Trubin agreed. “Sorry to trouble you. I Won’t stay in this town for more than a few days. I will leave for the city the day after tomorrow. I wonder how long you will stay in the Inn?”
“We have a mission. After the mission is over, we will leave the island.”Abel thought for a moment and answered, “I think we will stay for at least half a month.”
“That’s Great.”A rare smile appeared on Trubin’s face. Kant and the others were willing to stay and give some support to this inn. From the bottom of his heart, he was very touched.
“If boss will come back before then, I think we will give reliable advice,”Kant promised.
“Okay.”Trubin nodded. “Then I will take my leave first. I am really sorry to disturb you in the middle of the night.”
Kant stood up to send him off. “Boss, you still want to stay in this town for two days, right? If there’s anything you want to say, we still have a chance to continue chatting.”
“Yes.”After being courteous for a while, Trubin left the guest room under the watchful eyes of the three people.
“This is troublesome. We haven’t even found the person we want to find. Now, we also have to find a cashier for this inn,”Abel said as he walked back to the main hall and leaned on the tea table dejectedly.
“What’s The Big Deal? Is It suitable for business? This point is very obvious in terms of a person’s temperament,”Bunduk said nonchalantly.
“You have to choose this person carefully. At least give the boss an explanation.”After leaving these words, Kant turned around and left.
When Abel went to look for him, Kant was changing his bathrobe and preparing to go to bed.
After talking with Trubin for a while, Kant was extremely sleepy. He would probably sleep until noon the next day.
“His Majesty has returned to his room.”Bunduk yawned and said, “Let’s talk about picking people tomorrow. I have to go and rest too.”
“That’s fine too.”Abel waved his hand at Bunduk and said, “I’ll let you go and rest now. When I Wake You Up Tomorrow, you have to get up willingly.”
“Alright.”Bunduk did not hear what Abel said at all, but simply agreed.
Chapter 866: soldier who smells good and sells his skills
Abel looked at Bunduk’s departing figure and sighed. He began to stay up all night and work hard alone.
At noon the next day, Kant woke up from his sleep. When he walked out of the bedroom, he found that the main hall was empty.
“Have the two of them gone to patrol?”Kant muttered in his heart. Then, he walked into the bathroom and washed up.
Just as Kant was lying in the barrel filled with hot water and enjoying his leisure time, the sound of footsteps came from outside the bathroom door.
Before Kant had any thoughts, Abel’s voice came in.
“Your Majesty, we are back from that guild! Michelle brought reliable news!”
“When did you go?”Kant jumped out of the water tank and shouted towards the door, “Wait for me to go out first.”
“Yes!”Abel’s mood was very high.
After putting on his cotton-padded jacket, Kant opened the bathroom door and walked out. The heat in the room immediately retracted when it came into contact with the cold air outside the door, forming a white gas that lingered at the door.
Kant glanced at the two people sitting at the tea table drinking afternoon tea.
After walking into the tea table, Kant pointed at the pastries on the table and asked in puzzlement, “These were sent by the waiter?”
“We didn’t trouble them. These were brought by the two of us to the kitchen.”Bunduk drank a mouthful of tea and said indifferently.
Looking at the two people’s smug look, Kant raised his eyebrows and sat down in his seat, he said, “You did well. You found a candidate so quickly. You even completed the mission. Tell me, how did you do it?”
“Actually, it’s nothing. I just suddenly remembered that a soldier in the team is good at smelling.”After seeing Kant take his seat, Abel immediately sat up straight, he explained, “Let their captain take him to the streets near the guild to perform.”
“The guild found them just like that?”Kant was amused by Abel’s idea and asked.
“Yes.”Abel couldn’t help but show a proud expression, he continued, “After the name of the soldier spread in that street, the members of the Guild also noticed the existence of the group of people who perform. They immediately rushed over and told the soldier that they would invite this soldier to meet with the boss of the Guild at noon tomorrow.”
“HMM, your idea is really convenient,”Kant praised.
The guild was secretly involved in drug trafficking. Finding a talented person like the entertainer soldier, the content of the conversation was most likely related to the hidden production chain.
“I was just lucky,”Abel replied embarrassedly.
“By the way, what’s the name of the Soldier?”Kant raised his head and asked.
“Can he handle the meeting tomorrow?”It was not until now that Bunduk interrupted.
“This…”Abel’s face showed a hesitant expression.
“Although it’s good to be able to smell the fragrance, I told you at that time to choose someone suitable for dealing with strangers.”Kant’s words were also filled with a trace of worry.
“That child…”Abel glanced at Bunduk, “His temperament is more lively than other elven soldier’s. “However, after hearing about the sinking of the ship, this child’s temperament became much quieter. “Today, I sent a group of them to the vicinity of the guild. I didn’t really listen to him during the entire journey.”
“The impact of the sinking of the ship…”Bunduk’s expression also became complicated. He raised his head and turned his gaze towards Kant.
Under the gaze of the two people, Kant was silent for a moment. Finally, he said, “No matter what, we still have to think about how to carry out this plan. Abel has made a good start. The rest needs everyone to work together.”
“Yes,”Abel and Bunduk answered in unison.
“After dinner tonight, arrange for Michelle and I to meet,”Kant thought for a moment and requested.
After having afternoon tea, Bunduk and Abel left the inn. Today, many soldiers escorted the inn’s guests to the city gate, so they had to rush to the streets to patrol.
Kant walked to the restaurant on the second floor. After passing through the lonely cafeteria, he arrived at the restaurant that ordered dishes.
The chef who made lunch for him yesterday greeted him, “Good afternoon, Lord!”
“Hello!”Kant replied with a smile, “Why are there so few people today?”
“Those people didn’t want to stay in the inn. After breakfast, they went to the street to stroll around.”The chef smiled humorously, “But to me, it doesn’t matter. “Anyway, not many people come to my place.”
“I think they just haven’t tried it. If they tried it once, they would definitely be fascinated by your cooking.”Kant blinked and said, “Just like me and your boss.”
“Well… Hahaha.”The chef’s face was wrinkled at first, as if he was imagining the scene Kant had mentioned. After a while, he laughed heartily and said, “Thank you. What do you want to eat today?”
“The same as yesterday.”Kant sat down by the window. After looking at the scenery in the sky for a while, he turned his head and asked the chef who was busy in front of the stove, “Didn’t the boss come here today?”
“The boss went out very early, but I prepared his breakfast.”The chef raised his head and said confidently to Kant, “Fresh shrimp, vegetable roll, and peanut paste.”
“Hehe,”Kant laughed and said, “The boss has really worked hard. He has to go out to work every day.”
“The boss’s daily routine is indeed quite irregular. After all, he is the one who has to worry about this inn.”The chef cut the saintly virgin fruit in half, he replied, “However, fortunately, his body is still pretty good. As long as he adjusts his daily routine, he is no different from other people of the same age.”
“Actually, the inn has been running well before we arrived,”Kant said softly, “Why didn’t the boss give himself more time to rest?”
“Hehe.”The chef laughed softly, “Lord, look at the street in front of the inn. How many people will pass by? The boss came to the island ten years ago and opened the inn in this place. His heart is not in running this shop.”
“You see it quite clearly.”Kant raised his eyebrows and said, “Are you interested in telling me more details?”
The chef smiled and raised his head. He looked at Kant and shook his head. He put his left index finger on his lips and said, “People like us can’t talk about this kind of thing.”
Chapter 867: Clues left by the chef
“Hehe.”Kant looked away and said, “It’s fine if you don’t want to talk about it. But I think the people in your small town are really unfathomable.”
“There’s no such thing.”The chef put down the cook and explained, “Just like me. In front of you, Lord, I’m just a common chef. Then, isn’t my identity just a chef?”
“I can’t be bothered with you.”Kant only felt that this chef’s words were very interesting. If he argued with him about any topic, he would definitely be tricked by him. So, he waved his hand and continued to enjoy the scenery outside the window.
The chef chuckled for a while, and then he automatically stopped talking.
After more than ten minutes, the delicious and delicious lunch was served on the table. When Kant was arranging the napkins, he found that the chef had brought another cup of peanut butter.
“I spoke too much just now.”The chef stood at the table and apologized with a smile. “This cup of peanut butter is my apology to Lord. I hope Lord can forget my mistake.”
“No, no need.”Kant quickly declined. “We had a good chat just now. Why are you doing this?”
After hearing this, the expression on the chef’s face became serious. He said, “This peanut butter is our boss’s favorite and my favorite. Please accept it.”
Kant raised his head and looked at the chef for a while. Finally, he compromised and nodded. “Okay, then let me try what this taste is.”
“I’m very grateful.”The chef heaved a sigh of relief. After bowing, he left the table.
After watching the chef leave, Kant picked up his knife and fork and began to enjoy the first meal of the day. When eating, one’s mood was always happy. During the break, Kant caught a glimpse of the peanut butter placed in the corner of the plate.
Under the contrast of the silver cup, this simple drink became mysterious and luxurious.
“When do you drink this?”Kant asked softly as he looked at the open stove. In the end, he found that there was no one there. The chef had already left.
Kant raised his eyebrows in surprise. His right hand could not help but hold the handle of the cup. He brought the peanut paste that the chef had given him to his face, put it to his lips, and took a sip. The taste was rich and fragrant, the peanuts were finely ground.
Kant drank the entire cup of peanut paste in one go. When he put the empty cup back to its original position, a crisp sound was heard by Kant’s ear.
A key was placed on the coasters that were placed on the cups.
Kant’s eyes immediately became alert. This key must have been left behind by the chef. However, why did he invite him to meet him in such a secretive manner?
“This peanut milk is our boss’s favorite and also my favorite. Please accept it.”What the Chef said not long ago was reflected in Kant’s mind.
“Is it about the inn owner?”Kant took a deep breath and silently put the key into his sleeve. After confirming that there was no one around, he left the restaurant in a hurry.
After leaving the restaurant, Kant stood at the staircase and hesitated for a while. He decided to go back to his room first and reorganize what had just happened.
It was about 3:30 in the afternoon. Kant closed the curtains in the main hall and sat down at the tea table. He took out the key from his pocket and began to study it carefully.
The key was made of copper and iron, and it was now covered in rust. It was impossible to predict that he would go to the dining room to eat lunch today. Moreover, Kant had never seen the chef leave the stove during the time between ordering and waiting for the dishes to be served. The chef carried this key with him. In such a humid environment like the kitchen, it was indeed easy for it to rust.
The key was engraved with the three numbers ‘503’.
But this inn did not have a fifth floor. Where did ‘503’refer to?
Kant carefully recalled what the chef said in his mind. During the conversation, he did not leave any information about the time of the meeting.
“This room…”Kant, who could not find any clues, was ready to ask for the answer himself.
At this time, a knock came from outside the door. Kant was so frightened by the sudden sound that he stopped breathing. He answered vigilantly, “Who is it?”
“Your Majesty Kant, I am Moliere.”A sharp voice came through the crack of the door.
“Moliere?”Kant recalled for a long time in his mind, and then he remembered that the owner of this name was the dwarf who had publicly argued with him in the lobby yesterday. He stood up and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“The group of people who attacked the hotel yesterday, I don’t know what kind of connections they had, but they were released today,”the dwarf explained loudly.
“Wait, come in and talk.”After hearing this, Kant quickened his pace, walked to the front of the entrance, opened the door of the guest room, and greeted the dwarf in front of him.
“Thank you.”The dwarf immediately walked into the guest room, sat down at the tea table before Kant, picked up the teapot, and guzzled. After catching his breath, he wiped his mouth, he continued to say to Kant, who was sitting opposite him, “That group of people was really too impudent. After being released by an acquaintance in the monitoring institute, they immediately went to a tavern on Collin Avenue. “Coincidentally, they met the soldier who escorted the guests out of the city. Two groups of people picked up their weapons and fought.”
“What happened? who made the first move?”Kant said with a frown.
“Uh, this…”. The ORC man’s words were too harsh. He even made a comment about the family members of the CARADIA soldier. “So one of us couldn’t help but make a move.”The dwarf observed Kant’s expression, he explained.
“Where are they now?”Kant let out a long breath and asked.
“They were taken to the monitoring station by the soldier of the Acropolis on the street.”The dwarf said, “This is why I came to look for your highness. You have to hurry over.”
“You have been schemed against. I can not personally take part in this matter. Otherwise, I will fall into their trap.”Kant calmed down and said, “Does Bunduk and the others know about this?”
“Yes. After hearing the news, Bunduk and Lord Abel are rushing to the monitoring station.”After hearing Kant’s deduction, the dwarf was stunned, he replied, “Your Highness, if you don’t go personally, I don’t think you can settle this matter.”
Kant glanced at him, he slowly said, “I can’t be distracted by their tricks anymore. That orc man is cannon fodder for the dark side. “If you go and clean them up now, it will be like you want to cut down a tree but only care about sweeping the fallen leaves under it. “I have more important things to do now.”
“… I see.”The dwarf was frightened by Kant’s aura and nodded timidly. After a while, he left.
Chapter 868: the dispute in front of the mansion
After the dwarf left, Kant sat quietly for a while and then walked to the lobby of the inn. He found the waiter who was busy in the kitchen and asked, “Do you know where the chef who is responsible for cooking is on the second floor of the restaurant?”
“The chef is not resting in the inn. Lord, you didn’t find him in the restaurant. He probably went back to his home.”The waiter was stunned and answered.
“When will he come again?”Kant asked.
“This chef was invited by our boss from nowhere. He comes and goes whenever he wants. We don’t know either.”The waiter’s introduction.
“Alright, thank you.”Kant walked out of the kitchen with slight disappointment. After sitting in the tea seat in the lobby for a while, he finally decided to find room 503 in this inn during this period of time when he could not see the chef.
On the other side, Bunduk and Abel, who had rushed to the entrance of the monitoring station, coincidentally bumped into the bruised and swollen orc man and his group.
These seven or eight nomads took the initiative to walk in front of the two of them. The leading orc man frowned and said, “Why is it you? where is the one leading you?”
“You have stirred up such a small storm, but it is still not enough to reach the side of Your Highness’shoes.”Abel clenched his fists and said, “Go back to your cell and stay there!”
“With just you, you want to save your brothers? I’m afraid it is still not enough.”The ORC man shook his head and continued to say.
“Where are they now?”Bunduk asked.
“I don’t know. After all, we’ve only entered the temporary detention center here.”The ORC man giggled at the people beside him and mocked, “What kind of scenery is this prison? We’ve never seen it before.”
“I told you to get out of the way!”Abel kicked the orc man’s waist, causing him to retreat a few meters.
“Abel, let’s Go!”Blue veins popped out on Bunduk’s forehead. After enduring for a while, he said to Abel.
Seeing the two people leave, the other nomads gathered around the orc man and said indignantly, “These two people really need to be taught a lesson.”
“Our mission is completed. Let’s go drink.”The orc man put away his mocking expression, he said nonchalantly, “The more angry these two are, the faster we will reach our goal. There’s nothing to be bothered about.”
The Beastman left the monitoring station with the support of his underlings.
Abel and Bunduk were now overwhelmed by anger. They walked to the reception desk of the monitoring station, he asked, “We are the soldier and officer of Caradia. Our people were sent here by the city guards. We are here to bring them back.”
“You…”the staff member in charge of receiving them noticed the anger in their eyes. He timidly said, “Please Wait a moment. I will go find Captain Vermont. He brought them here with his team.”
“Okay,”Abel agreed. “We will wait for him here.”
The staff member quickly spread his legs and ran to a public office in the corridor.
Five minutes had passed. Bunduk and Abel stood motionlessly in front of the reception desk. The passers-by began to place their gazes on them.
“This person doesn’t look familiar. could he be a newly transferred staff member from this place?”A merchant who often walked around the monitoring station commented in a low voice.
“He seems to be a human and an elf. Judging from their clothes, he should be an outsider.”Another person in the crowd spoke up. “What are they doing here?”
“I just received news that today, on the road leading to the city gate, Bowen’s group fought with a group of human soldier,”a passerby said to his companion after hearing the discussions around him.
“Bowen?”His companion said in surprise, “Then these two people aren’t here to ransom people, right? Those who oppose Bowen don’t have a good ending.”
“If the Outsiders want to poach him from the monitoring station, they probably don’t have any news.”
Bunduk and Abel silently listened to the comments of the people around them. In their hearts, they snorted coldly and said, “Today, we have to take this person away.”.
At this moment, the waiter who had just left walked over with a half-beast man in uniform. He made an introduction to Bunduk and Abel. “This is Captain Vermont, who is in charge of handling this matter. He is a first-grade officer in the station.”
“Hello.”Fremont extended his hand to greet Bunduk and Abel.
“Hello.”Bunduk and Abel politely replied.
Fremont glanced at the surrounding crowd and suggested to Bunduk and Abel with a smile: “There are too many people and too many eyes here. Let’s go to the civil service office to discuss it in detail.”
The passersby who pretended to pass by unintentionally and eavesdropped on the conversation by the side felt bored and took the initiative to disperse.
Vermont led the two of them to a small public office on the first floor. The layout of the room was roughly the same as the one Abel had met with the Midget clan last time, but the space was much smaller.
After signaling for the two of them to take their seats on the leather chairs, Vermont placed his hands on the table and said to Bunduk and Abel, “You came here this time for the incident that happened this morning, right?”
“May I ask what the punishment method given to our soldier by the monitoring station is?”Abel asked.
“Imprisonment for three months. After all, the impact of this incident is quite great.”Fremont lowered his head and pondered for a moment, he then said, “The decision was made by the judge. In the monitoring station, the power of the judge far surpasses that of all of us. Therefore, even if you came here personally today, it’s probably impossible for you to take them away.”
“Three months? “Just for a group fight?”Bunduk said angrily, “What about that group of people? “They were just released today, and they deliberately found our people to take revenge. Why can they leave here without any responsibility?”
“This…”Vermont’s face showed a troubled expression as he explained, “These people were acquitted in yesterday’s case. So the judge only paid attention to their role in this dispute.”
“Acquitted?”Abel’s eyes widened as he said, “What about Fellett’s death? What about the injuries suffered by the guests? How were they acquitted?”
“Wasn’t the person who killed Fellett a waiter? Those guests didn’t come forward to testify, so the attack couldn’t be considered…”Vermont slowly explained.
“Bullsh * T!”Bunduk pushed the table aside, he roared at the officer in front of him, “I see that this monitoring station of yours is to exonerate those bastards. The Nomads on Your Island believe this, but we don’t! Today, you have to hand over the person!”
