Chapter 140: The Birth of Lecter City
Mike smiled at Romon, before continuing.
“I think the biggest reason we were able to take Ancient Law Town so easily, was because of General Lecter.”
“If not for General Lecter delaying the Empire’s side, and delaying the time to attack, we wouldn’t have taken down Ancient Law Town so easily!”
When he heard that, Rowe immediately agreed.
“Right! That’s right! Big Brother Mike, you made a good point! If it wasn’t for General Lecter’s scheme, we wouldn’t have had the time to delay for a month until the Nameless Army appeared!
“I think we can change the name of Ancient Law Town to Lecter City!”
Simultaneously, Rowe and Mike’s gazes then fell onto Romon.
Romon smiled as he said, “Of course I have no objections! The soldiers who have contributed to our army should be well rewarded!”
Then, Mike walked to General Lecter’s side.
He patted General Lecter on the shoulder and said, “General Lecter, Romon and Rowe have decided to hand over the jurisdiction of Ancient Law Town to you!”
“Really?” General Lecter said excitedly.
“Not only that, but…”
Mike smiled mysteriously as he looked at General Lecter.
General Lecter noticed that Mike had deliberately left his sentence hanging and said, “And what? Hurry up and say it!”
Mike laughed before giving his answer.
“Rowe and Romon have also decided to change the name of Ancient Law Town to Lecter City!”
“What do you think? Are you happy?”
General Lecter’s expression instantly changed when he heard Mike’s words. Then, he spoke enthusiastically.
“Really? Are the two leaders not only willing to hand over the jurisdiction of Ancient Law Town to me, but also willing to rename Ancient Law Town after me?”
Mike nodded with a smile, then in seriousness, he said, “Of course!”
When General Lecter heard this, his heart began to become extremely excited.
In the Empire, although he had been a general, no one had ever thought highly of him.
After all, to the Empire, he was merely an outsider. He was not even considered a citizen of the Empire.
All the hardships he had experienced were only known to himself.
He was the only one who knew about all the grievances in his heart.
Thinking of all this, the corners of General Lecter’s eyes seemed to burst like a dam.
“I… I finally… made it!”
General Lecter said with a choked voice.
Witnessing the true feelings of General Lecter before his eyes, Mike could not help but feel overwhelmed by emotions in his heart.
In fact, through his own journey, Mike could empathize with the loneliness that General Lecter had revealed.
This was exactly what Mike had been suppressing all this time.
Although he was accompanied by a fairy, he could not tell her all the troubles in his heart.
Mike came from a world 3,000 years later, everything was just like a journey for him here.
How much could you really reveal to a stranger when you were only passing by?
Finally, the large number of soldiers of the Lieluo Army arrived at the center of Ancient Law Town.
There was a huge building here, which was the administrative building of Ancient Law Town.
Mike looked at the magnificent building in front of him and could not help but sigh.
Just then, the mayor of Ancient Law Town finally came out and slowly walked in front of the crowd. Then, he opened his mouth to speak.
“Leader of the Lieluo Army! This is the key to our Ancient Law Town’s administrative building. It belongs to you now!”
After saying that, the mayor bowed his head and handed the key over with both hands.
Rowe took the key and presented it to Lecter. Then, he said to Lecter, “General Lecter! Oh no, you should be called Lord Lecter City now!”
Lecter looked at Rowe thoughtfully, before Rowe spoke again.
“From now on, Ancient Law Town will be renamed Lecter City, and the first Lord of Lecter City will be Lecter!”
Hearing Rowe’s words, all the people who were around, began to cheer.
“Long live Lecter City! Long live Lecter City! Long live Lecter City!”
Countless people spontaneously started to chant loudly.
Currently, Lecter was also basking in boundless glory.
Waves of pleasant feelings continuously appeared in his mind.
Following that, Lecter raised the hand that was holding the key tightly.
He spoke loudly to everyone.
“Citizens of Lecter City! I, Lecter, promise you! In the future, you will definitely live a life that everyone will envy!”
“I will also guarantee your safety, and I will not let you suffer any harm again!”
When everyone heard Lecter’s words, they began to spontaneously call out a new round of calls.
“It looks like this General Lecter still has a lot of charisma!”
Romon smiled as he looked at Lecter.
After a whole day of revelry, the newly born Lecter City finally welcomed peace.
In the administrative building, Rowe, Romon, Mike, Dali, and Lecter were currently discussing the future of the war.
Suddenly, Romon looked at the crowd and said, “Should we speed up our attack on the Empire now?”
“While the road is clear, we should cut through all obstacles and charge straight into the center of the Empire!”
Mike felt that Romon’s words made a lot of sense.
Rowe then contributed his opinion.
“I think we can indeed do this. We should pursue the victory and not give the people of the Empire an opportunity to have an advantage!”
Suddenly, Lecter, who was sitting at the side, spoke up.
“I don’t think our focus should be on attacking the center of the Empire!”
“Oh? General Lecter, then what is your opinion?”
Rowe said to Lecter with interest.
In response, Lecter replied, “Those old fellows of the Empire are all ambitious. Even if we march straight in and defeat one Sano, the next Sano might soon appear!”
“Is that so?” Said Romon.
“Then, General Lecter, what do you think? How should we proceed with the current war then?”
Giving a confident smile, Lecter said, “Even if we defeat one Sano, thousands of Gizano will rise up quickly. What we need to do is to break them one by one!”
“Break them one by one?”
Mike said in puzzlement.
“That’s right! Break them one by one. Right now, the Empire has formed a long battle line in the north, and they are constantly building fortifications on every battle line!”
Then, Lecter beamed as he said, “I have a perfect way to break these fortifications!”
