Scot Moran heard the commotion from the other side of the formation, and his
subordinates quickly reported to him that there was a group of four
"Who are they? Is it the tower's inhabitant?" Scot Moran asked his Vice Guild
Leader as they headed to the other side of the formation.
"I think they are one of the Tang Empire's teams, three people and one elf,"
The Second Vice Guild Leader, Hurst Milton, told Scot Moran, and his voice was
kinda shaky. It was the sign of nervousness he showed externally. Of course,
after the show of the Tang Empire's power in the Earth Tournament, no one
was not afraid of the Tang Empire, even if it was just four people. Not even a
single ghter from any faction could win against the Tang Empire's members.
Scot Moran nodded his head as only the Tang Empire had an elf with them. On
top of that, he heard that the Tang Empire was the rst faction to enter the
tower. He quickly gured out why his Vice Guild Leader concluded the small
team was from the Tang Empire with those two clues.
"What should we do, Guild Leader?" Hurst Milton was visibly nervous. Tang
Shaoyang and his faction managed to plant the seed of fear in the others during
the Earth Tournament for him to be this nervous. But of course, it is also
because the Tang Empire was openly hostile to the World Government. The
Blue Vest was part of the World Government, and he was nervous because he
was afraid the Tang Empire would attack them because of that. The notion of
ghting back just never crossed his mind.
Scot Moran let out a sigh secretly. His rst Vice Guild Leader was too bold and
arrogant, and the second Vice Guild Leader was too cautious and timid. The
exact opposite characteristic, but he liked Hurst Milton more because the guy
did his work meticulously. "Let's meet them rst and respond to their
following actions. There's no need for us to kill each other this early.
The Blue Vest Guild was in an awkward situation to meet the Tang Empire this
early. Even though it was just a small team, he did not want to ght them right
now, even though the World Government and the Tang Empire were at odds.
Scot Moran did not want to be the faction that started the war between the
World Government and The Tang Empire, or else they would be Tang Empire's
main target. If that happened, the Tang Empire would focus on the Blue Vest
Guild, and it was not something he wanted.
"Who are you? Identify yourself!" As Scot Moran and Hurst Milton got closer to
the other side, they heard the familiar arrogant voice. It was Donald Callahan''s
voice, the rst Vice Guild Leader of the Blue Vest Guild.
Scot Moran and Hurst Milton picked up their pace when they heard the voice.
Both did not want to escalate the situation unless the Tang Empire started the
ght rst. Scot Moran got out of his team formation and got to see the small
team. He quickly scanned the three people and one elf, and he recognized two
of them. The elf was one of the fteen ghters from the Tang Empire, and the
young man was someone in a high position in the Tang Empire.
"Step back, Donald!" Scot Moran immediately called his rst Vice Guild Leader
to step back before the situation escalated. He could not believe his Vice Guild
Leader did not recognize the elf and Lu An. "I will take over from here on."
Donald Callahan looked at his Guild Leader and nodded his head. He returned to
Scot Moran's side and whispered, "They are from the Tang Empire, Sir. This is
our chance to take them down since there are only four of them." He
recognized the group was from the Tang Empire, so he tried to create a scenario
where he could justify killing them.
Scot Moran looked at his Vice Guild Leader before looking back at the Tang
Empire's group. There were only four of them, and he had three thousand
people with him. Without a doubt, they had the numbers to overwhelm the four
people. Without a doubt, this was a golden chance to reduce the Tang Empire's
"No, let's not attack them, Sir. We are in an unknown place with numerous
unknown possibilities. There's a chance that we need to work together with the
Tang Empire to clear the rst oor, so better not sour our relationship with
them," Hurst Milton hurriedly whispered to his Guild Leader. "Remember the
Tower Break mechanic, Sir. If we fail to clear the rst ten oors within a year,
all creatures inside the tower will invade the Earth." Hurst Milton looked into
the big picture instead of thinking of the short-term goal.
"Why are you so scared, Milton? We have the numbers, and if we killed them
all, the Tang Empire would never be able to gure out that we kill them unless
there's a traitor among us," Donald Callahan did not like the timid Milton and
immediately argued back.
This was a headache for Scot Moran as both Vice Guild Leaders' arguments
made sense. However, he had to take more risks if he chose to kill this team.
"What if they have long-distance communication? Don't forget the
Communication System; they can contact the main force that they are being
attacked, and we will be done for if The Emperor comes. Let's not take the risk,
Sir." Hurst Milton shook his head repeatedly.
"I am sorry, Milton. But this is our only chance to get rid of the nuisance. Also,
the Communication System can't be used inside the tower for some reason. I
tried to send a message to you just now, but the Communication System is
disabled until we clear the rst oor. That means they can't contact their main
force," Scot Moran took the risk and decided to ght.
"Get ready to ght, Sir," Revalor warned Lu An. He could hear clearly what the
opposite party whispered in his ears. Aside from his sharp sight, he had keen
hearing too. They were too loud for whispering, and he overheard everything.
