2286 The Adorable King (1)
Shen Yanxiao listened quietly. This was the first time she had heard of herself from someone other than the people in the Forsaken Land.
A smile slowly blossomed on her lips.
It turned out that the people of the Brilliance Continent were not ignorant of what she had done.
It felt pretty good.
Mumu Fan did things very quickly. As soon as night fell, he had arranged for Shen Yanxiao to enter the palace.
Yu Lei, the impostor, was given an excuse by Shen Yanxiao and was sent back to the Alchemist Guild first, while Shen Yanxiao followed Mumu Fan to the palace.
The palace was guarded by dwarves who operated mechanical puppets. The dwarves themselves were small, and although they were not inferior to other races in terms of strength, they were easily at a disadvantage in battle because of their petite size, but mechanical puppets made up for this shortcoming.
The whole palace was filled with the craftsmanship of dwarven alchemy. Alchemy products could be seen everywhere. Several huge cannons high above the palace made it more like a sturdy fortress.
Mumu Fan took Shen Yanxiao to the palace and was led to the king’s residence by the guards here.
Standing in front of the door, Mumu Fan stopped. He tidied up his clothes and knocked gently on the door.
“My king, Mumu Fan and Huohuo Xiao request an audience.”
In the room, a crisp voice suddenly sounded.
“Master Mumu Fan, please come in.”
Shen Yanxiao was stunned. The voice sounded very young.
Mumu Fan opened the door and took Shen Yanxiao inside.
After entering the room, Shen Yanxiao was surprised.
The simple room was not at all what an emperor should have. In front of a clean desk, a very young dwarf boy was blinking his big watery eyes at them.
“I, Mumu Fan, pay my respects to my king.” Mumu Fan suddenly knelt on one knee to the dwarf behind the desk.
Shen Yanxiao was struck dumb…
The Dwarf King was actually… such a little fellow!
Even judging by the age of the dwarves, he did not look like an adult.
“Master Mumu Fan, please get up. I told you that you don’t have to be so polite in private.” The Dwarf King smiled, and a child-like innocent smile blossomed in the corners of his mouth.
Shen Yanxiao could not associate the little guy in front of her with the word ‘king’.
“Xiu… this little guy… he’s not an adult yet, is he? How can he be the Dwarf King?” Shen Yanxiao’s mind was in complete disarray. This was completely different from what she had imagined.
Xiu’s voice sounded in Shen Yanxiao’s mind.
“His actual age is much older than you think, and he is also very powerful. It’s just that there seems to be some strange power in his body that has turned him into what he is now.” Xiu also had a little doubt about the situation of the Dwarf King. He could easily figure out the age of the dwarves and naturally knew that the little fellow in front of him was definitely not as young as his appearance showed.
“This must be Huohuo Xiao? Master Yuyu Lei’s disciple. I’m really sorry to let you see me like this.” The king looked at Shen Yanxiao with a smile on his mouth, looking extremely adorable.
“Huohuo Xiao pays respect to our king.” Shen Yanxiao awkwardly knelt on one knee and saluted. The appearance of the Dwarf King was really hard for her to accept.
“When Mumu Fan brought you to me, he should have told you about the poison in my body. As you can see, it is because of the poison in my body that I have become like this.” The king smiled bitterly.
