As A Cardinal, I Don't Do Overtime - Chapter 170 – The Astonished Elves
At night, the lights were bright.
The wind was blowing, and the whole place was covered in dust.
Outside the city gates of San Lorenzo,
A group of special people in green robes came to the gate.
When the soldiers came to do a routine check,
They slowly took off their hoods.
A group of blond-haired, blue-eyed elves with long pointed ears appeared in front of them.
The soldiers were stunned by the elves in front of them.
It was not until the leading elf frowned that they reacted.
One hurriedly asked, “Um, may I know why you elves have come to San Lorenzo?”
The elves were a group of people who loved peace.
However, one should always be wary of others.
Even a rabbit would bite if it was anxious.
Not to mention, the elves were intelligent.
When the leading elf heard the soldier’s question, she was still expressionless.
Towards these humans, they naturally did not smile.
After all, many of the missing girls in the elven race had fallen into the hands of human n.o.bles.
They became their exclusive slaves and playthings.
This made the elves have a very bad impression of humans.
She didn’t say anything and directly raised her head to signal.
Then a person walked up from behind her.
She took out a letter with the Orthodox Church’s emblem.
Then she handed it to the soldier.
The soldier carefully examined it and found that it was from the Orthodox Church.
After checking that there were no traces of fraud, he hurriedly moved aside.
Seeing this, the elves walked straight in.
The Orthodox Church.
The elves looked at the towering building.
Their eyes were filled with amazement.
This was even more magnificent than their Queen’s residence.
“Humans are really rich!”
Behind them, an elf sighed.
The other elves nodded.
Although the leader of the elves was also a little surprised, she was not like the other elves.
She was a little surprised, then she regained her calmness.
“Let’s go, let’s go in.”
Under the command of the leader, the elves followed her footsteps closely.
They stepped into the Orthodox Church’s Holy Church.
As soon as they entered the door, the Holy Knights on duty noticed them.
They took out their Holy Spears and pointed at them, shouting, “Who are you!”
As soon as they said this, dozens of Holy Knights instantly heard the movement.
They all pointed their Holy Spears at them.
A murderous aura instantly filled the entire Holy Church.
All of the Holy Knights present had been baptized by the blood of countless werewolves.
The murderous aura they emitted caused fear.
The elves felt this murderous aura and instantly felt as if they were facing a great enemy.
Even the leader had a solemn expression.
Although they were not enemies,
The power of these Paladins made her heart palpitate.
Such an army would definitely crush the elven race if they were to battle.
After the meeting, she would definitely report this situation to Her Majesty, the Elf Queen.
If all humans fought like this, it would be too terrifying.
Even if the elves did not want to have any conflict with humans, they could not let their guard down.
Because of the characteristics of humans, it was hard for them to believe that humans would not have negative thoughts about them.
In an instant, countless thoughts flashed through the mind of the elf leader.
After she finished thinking, she said, “We are here to pick up our people.”
As she said this, the elf leader took off her hood.
Seeing this, the elves behind her also took off their hoods.
They revealed their true appearances.
The exquisite and unique appearance of the elves was revealed to the Holy Knights.
It was different from what they had imagined.
These Holy Knights were not surprised by their beauty.
This group of Holy Knights still had sharp eyes and looked at them in an imposing manner.
This once again shattered their impression of this group of Holy Knights.
The elven leader was even more alarmed.
Her understanding of Holy Knights deepened once more.
She did not dare to underestimate them.
The elven leader composed herself and said, “Please inform your church’s Pope of our arrival.”
Hearing this, the Holy Knights looked at each other.
They did not know what to do.
Because their Pope was already off duty.
Even if they went to call him, they would only get a cold shoulder.
Moreover, they were very familiar with the pope’s rules.
Who would dare to call him at this time?
The Holy Knights looked at each other, as if they were saying, “You go?”
After struggling for a long time, none of the Holy Knights dared to stand out.
This situation directly froze.
The elves were confused. How come after their leader said these words, there was still no reply from these Holy Knights?
The elves glanced at them, not knowing what was going on.
The Holy Knights froze on the spot, but the elves were still the guests of the Orthodox Church.
They could not afford to be negligent, so they said, “Elves, our Pope is off duty now. Why don’t you stay here for the night and wait for the Pope to come to work?”
The elf leader could not help but be stunned when she heard this word. For a moment, she did not understand what this meant.
Since when did the Orthodox Church have such rules and regulations?
This was the first time she had heard of it.
Although she did not often come to human cities,
As the largest force of the continent being humans, the elves still had some understanding of it.
They definitely had not heard of any off-work regulations.
Could this be a trap?
As soon as this idea appeared in her mind, the elf leader immediately snapped out of it.
Let’s not talk about the Orthodox Church’s teachings.
Just take this letter today.
It was personally written by their Elf Princess.
After all, the elven language on it could not be faked.
Coupled with the sentence written in human language at the bottom,
The elves could not catch the slightest trace of malice.
Instead, they could feel the impatience to send the princess away from that human sentence.
The elf leader quietly thought for a while.
Behind him came the whispers of the elves.
“What’s going on? His Holiness is still resting? What should we do if something happens at night?”
“This can’t be a trap, right?”
Although they said it in a low voice, the people present were all very powerful.
At such a small distance, the Holy Knights could easily hear what the elves said.
But the Holy Knights were not angry
Because being suspicious was normal.
If it were them, they would also think the same.
But what could the Holy Knights do?
Who asked their Pope to have such a strange rule?
As subordinates, they could only obediently accept it.
The elf leader heard the whispers of the elves behind her.
Her expression immediately changed. To suspect someone in their territory, wouldn’t that cause conflict!
She hurriedly raised her head and looked at the Holy Knights.
