After Morudo left, Charlot continued to remain in a state of astonishment.
Rebirth... was such an unfathomable thing, and yet, right now, he might have just experienced it.
'Have I really... been reborn?" Charlot's gaze suddenly narrowed, revealing a maturity that was rare in a 14 year old young man. "If I really have been reborn, then Master will be coming right now...'
Just as he was thinking of this, a stream of sword light flashed in void space, and Fang Xingjian appeared before him.
'He really is here. After Morudo bullied and humiliated me, Master came. It really is the case.'
At this moment, Charlot was agitated like never before. The memories of the upcoming year continued to flow through his mind. The many moments of humiliation and vengeance he felt seemed as if they were going to explode like a bomb.
Be it the royal family, the Mage Association, or the Church of Universal Truth... All of them were enemies. Even his grandfather, Alexander, also viewed him as sworn enemy and had launched multiple attempts of sneak attacks to kill him. Even his mother, his uncle 1 , and many other of his kin had died in Alexander's hands.
He still remembered the scene where his entire family had been turned into dust under that single strike.
Charlot only had immense and indescribable feelings of hatred and vengeance for these people.
Fang Xingjian, however, had always been the one to save his life, only because his father had recognized Fang Xingjian's talent and taken him in. Charlot had always remain hiddenly quietly behind Fang Xingjian, watching as Fang Xingjian protected him.
This was not all. Fang Xingjian had even taken him in as a disciple, imparted sword techniques to him, and given him a set of Divine Equipment. All of these had allowed Charlot to gain power which he would never previously imagined that he would ever possess.
However, all of these were still destroyed by Alexander and the others.
'Since I've really been reborn, I must change my life and my Teacher's life. I'll get those people who bullied us to pay the price for what they've done.'
Fang Xingjian, who was facing Charlot, frowned slightly. He found it a little puzzling why Charlot appeared so agitated. Fang Xingjian asked calmly, "You know me?"
Charlot's expression froze, and countless thoughts flashed in his mind. He started to contemplate if he should tell Fang Xingjian about the fact that he had been reborn. After all, it was risky to do this. Once Fang Xingjian chose not to believe him, it would instead produce a counter effect to the things that he was going to do in the future.
However, at the thought of his Master's means, talents, and character, Charlot relaxed. He knew that the best way to treat this Master of his was to be frank.
So, Charlot dropped down to his knees. "Master, please accept a kowtow from your disciple."
Fang Xingjian frowned and with a flash, dodged Charlot's kowtow and appeared behind him. "Don't kowtow to me. There's no one in this world who is worth your kowtow. The two of us are essentially not that different either.
"Moreover, I'm not your Master."
Charlot smiled. Fang Xingjian's character was exactly the same as that in his memories. At the thought of this, his gaze flashed with affection. 'It's really great to be able to be reborn and come back.'
However, Charlot's expression then froze as he said, "Master, what I'm going to say from now on might be very hard to imagine, but they are likely to be facts.
"I've actually come from one year in the future. The you from one year later sent me back to this time to change our future fate of defeat."
"Oh?" A hint of surprise flashed in Fang Xingjian's eyes. It was clear that despite his great experiences in life, he had not expected Charlot to say this.
Charlot said solemnly, "Master, you took me in as your disciple not long after arriving in the Imperial Capital and taught me sword arts. However, be it Alexander, the four Mage Kings, or the many Guardian Kings from the Church of Universal Truth, their abilities are all deep and unfathomable.
"In the one year after the evil god ritual, we received pressure from many parties concurrently and were surrounded by enemies. Although Teacher has great talent and unrivalled sword arts, you weren't able to fend them all off.
Charlot's words sounded very earnest, and his tone was filled with great sincerity.
From what he had experienced during period of over one year, the thing that struck him the most was the feeling of being surrounded by enemies everywhere. Despite the fact that Fang Xingjian had the world's best sword arts, he had been unable to fend off those densely packed enemies that were like a hornet's nest.
Therefore, the first thing he was going to do after being reborn was persuade Fang Xingjian not to make enemies with all the people around him. Instead, he should liaison with one of the influences. This way, with Fang Xingjian's sword arts cultivation, it would not be hard for him to reach the top of the world in the future if he were given enough time to train.
After much thought, Charlot felt that this was the most important mission he needed to do in order to prevent the future tragedy.
Hearing Charlot's persuasion, Fang Xingjian neither commented nor replied. Instead, he asked, "How can I trust if what you said is the truth?"
Charlot said confidently, "Teacher, the sword technique you created is called the Celestial Eradication Sword Technique. Its strongest move is the Celestial Eradication Sword Formation. Is that right?"
Fang Xingjian said calmly, "Anyone would be able to find out about these information in the Great Western Region's Regional Academy. It doesn't suffice as evidence."
Hearing this, Charlot felt even more confident. It was because he had not known of these pieces of information prior to this. His understanding of Fang Xingjian's sword arts came from his memories of over a year later. Right now, he was 90% certain he had been reborn.
Charlot continued, "Teacher, based on my original memories, you'll help me attend the royal family's monthly competition tomorrow and then help me defeat the other Princes to clinch the first position. I can predict the arrangements and results for tomorrow right now."
"Monthly competition?" Fang Xingjian asked.
Charlot explained that the monthly competition was one of the royal family's tests. The Krieg royal family came from the Ancient Path of Hell, and since its founding, they had never given up on the strict examination which tested the cultivation of the members of the royal family.
The monthly competition was a test that all members of the royal family had to undertake every month. They would receive different rewards based on their rankings, and it was considered a means of supervising their cultivation.
Fang Xingjian nodded. "Then you can take part in the monthly competition tomorrow. You can go ahead and predict its results." Fang Xingjian would naturally not believe in such matters so easily. There was still a need for more evidence.
"Alright." Charlot nodded his head in agreement. After all, the matter concerning his rebirth was of great importance. He had not expected Fang Xingjian to believe him so easily. Charlot even felt that everything still seemed like a dream, so the monthly competition tomorrow would be a good verification of his memories.
However, after giving his agreement, he reminded Fang Xingjian, "But my rights to take part in the competition should have been cancelled by Morudo. This evil servant bullies me because of my young age. Not only did he misappropriate the assets I have, he also reported on my behalf to the Knight Association that I would be taking a leave of absence."
Fang Xingjian asked casually, "Where is this Morudo from?" As he spoke, his martial will had already scanned through the Second Prince's palace. He said in slight surprise, "To think that this person is a Divine level expert?"
Of course, Fang Xingjian would be surprised. To think that a Divine level expert had come to become Charlot's servant... Since when had the Krieg royal family became so extravagant?Referring to his mother's brother.
