Reincarnation Paradise - Chapter 410
In front of the Brikez Fortress, the two brothers stood in the wind and snow, surrounded by a few soldiers pointing their guns at them.
“I am an alchemist of the country, not a spy,”
Edward explained again, sighing helplessly.
“Don’t move. Raise your hands above your head.”
A soldier pulled the trigger, ready to shoot at any time.
“Brother, what should we do now?”
Although Arsen was not afraid of firearms, he did not act rashly.
“Wait a minute, and their commander should be coming out soon.”
The brothers were a little helpless. The northern soldiers did not give them the chance to explain at all. Even if they took out the pocket watch of the national alchemist, it would be useless.
Without the central government’s approval, these people did not believe in their identities.
This situation was very normal. As a strategic location on the border, the ‘Lumbertz Stronghold’ had agents who sneaked in every year and pretended to be alchemists.
Olivia Mira walked out of the fortress. The female general stood high and examined the two brothers.
“Who are you?”
Olivia Mira’s tone was not very good, just like her current mood.
After investigating, Olivia discovered that what the man said might be the truth. If that were the case, the war would not be far away, and she would not sit still and wait for death.
Hearing Olivia’s question above the fortress, Edward looked up.
“I am the Steel Alchemist – Edward Elk. It was Major Armstrong who introduced me to meet the Major General. Please withdraw the guards.”
Major Armstrong that Edward spoke of was Olivia Mira’s younger brother.
“Search their bodies.”
Olivia Mira did not hold back when she heard that her younger brother had introduced them.
“We are not bad people.”
“Who knows? Anyone can pretend to be a celebrity. Besides, a ‘Devil’ has come to my territory recently. Who knows if you are accomplices?”
Edward Eyre was a little confused.
After a search, a silver watch and a letter were handed to Olivia.
“This is the Major’s recommendation letter. It can prove that we are not bad people.”
Olivia Mira looked at the envelope in her hand. By looking at the handwriting on the envelope, she knew that her younger brother had indeed written it.
“Ah, it is indeed that fool.”
As she spoke, Olivia Mira tore the letter in her hand and did not look at the contents.
“Hey, why don’t you read it? There is information about me and my brother inside.”
“The recommendation letter is meaningless to me. I don’t need others to evaluate me. I only rely on my own eyes to judge others.”
As she spoke, Olivia Mira had already torn the letter into pieces.
“Let them in.”
The cold wind whistled, and the Eyre brothers, who were about to enter the fortress, couldn’t help but raise their heads. They were immediately intimidated by this magnificent fortress.
The steel walls over a hundred meters tall had traces of ice and snow on them.
“Amazing, so high —, so big!”
Hearing Edward’s shout, Olivia Mira lowered her eyes, her face a little gloomy.
“Scum, hurry up and leave. Be careful that I don’t pull off the antenna on your heads.”
The antenna in Olivia’s mouth was the ahoge on Edward’s head and a strand of hair on the Aljess armor.
Edward could feel the strength of the Queen of the North.
After entering the stronghold, the Eyre Like brothers did not obtain their freedom. What greeted them was the second round of ‘interrogation.’
Olivia Mira sat opposite the two brothers with hot tea in front of them.
“Do you know the Explosive Flame Alchemists?”
Hearing Olivia’s question, the two brothers were stunned.
Edward nodded and shook his head again.
“I’ve only seen him once. That guy is simply an explosion maniac. Last time, he collapsed a lot of buildings in Central City. In the end, it was I who repaired them. I don’t know why. A few days ago, he was wanted. The crime was an important person who killed the military.”
After listening to Edward’s description, Olivia bowed her head and pondered.
The information she got was the same as Edward’s. Su Xiao killed an important person in the military and was finally wanted.
If she remembered correctly, the so-called important personnel was just a colonel with no real power and had nothing to do with the Explosive Flame Alchemist.
The information provided by the military was full of doubts. In addition to the many actions of Central City in recent years, Olivia Mira felt that something was wrong.
“Let’s not talk about this first. I need the two of you to explain why you came directly to me without passing through the headquarters and the secret of your brother’s hollow armor.”
The Eyre brothers looked at each other.
“Well, if I knew, I might be in the military court…”
Before Edward could finish, Olivia interrupted him.
“Is it a sage and artificial human?”
Olivia only said two keywords. She did not say the Philosopher’s Stone and artificial human so that no gossip would be left.
“How did you know?”
Edward stood up with a whoosh.
“Looks like that guy didn’t lie. Not good, very bad.”
When the Eyre brothers saw Olivia’s reaction, they were stunned.
“Little Shortie, spit out everything you know right now!”
Olivia looked at Edward coldly.
“Who are you calling Little Shortie?”
“Little Shortie with the antenna, I’ll give you five minutes to describe the time. By the way, I’ll tell you that the laws of Central City are ineffective here.”
A group of soldiers rushed into the room, and dozens of guns were aimed at the two brothers.
“Don’t think that I am bluffing. This is the northwest, and dead people are common. Even the national alchemists are the same. For the sake of the lives of tens of thousands of my subordinates, I can bear this responsibility.”
“The lives of tens of thousands of subordinates?”
Edward was at a loss. He suddenly had a feeling that this female general in front of him might know more than him.
After hesitating for a moment, Edward said everything he could say.
Ten minutes later, Olivia looked at the ground beneath her feet. The soldiers in the room retreated one after another.
“What evidence do you have? You are telling the truth.”
Olivia’s question made the two brothers speechless.
“Not for the time being, but the Philosopher’s Stone and the artificial human exist. I have seen them with my own eyes.”
“I believe in the Philosopher’s Stone because I have seen it. As for the artificial human…”
Su Xiao once took out a small piece of the Philosopher’s Stone to Olivia. It was a piece smaller than a grain of rice.
Olivia took out the Philosopher’s Stone, and the two brothers felt their scalps go numb when they saw the Philosopher’s Stone.
“Did you refine this?”
Edward had already assumed a combat posture.
“No, it was someone else who gave it to me.”
“Where is that person?”
Edward’s breathing was heavy. Who knew how many people would have to sacrifice this small piece of Philosopher’s Stone?
“You don’t need to know. You need to confirm whether this is the Philosopher’s Stone. Is this thing magical?”
“This is the Philosopher’s Stone.”
After receiving Edward’s clear answer, Olivia took a deep breath.
“Demonstrate it. Let me see how it ignores the equivalent exchange.”
“No! I won’t use this thing. The material used to make this thing is human. I will never use it.”
