-The Main Palace of the Imperial Senate-
The outer defense walls were made from stone, and they were about four meters tall, protecting the Imperial Senate from all directions. This place was like an independent fortress on its own. Since the two princes kept the secret well, the Imperial Senate didn’t detect anything.

When the soldiers rushed over, they left a lot of dead bodies and closed the gate with the remaining forces after the initial panic. Since the defense mechanisms of the Imperial Senate were well kept, even though the Imperial Senate lost the majority of its armed forces, they still somehow managed to keep the fortress unconquered.

“How bold! How dare you attack and siege the Imperial Senate? Do you want to commit treason?” A noble in his fancy robe stood on top of a platform inside the fortress and questioned arrogantly and angrily.

Whoosh!

The bowstring vibration was the reply to his question.

An arrow flew out of a strong crossbow, and it instantly pierced this noble’s throat and killed him immediately.

Without saying a word, the soldiers of [Iron Blood Legion] and Imperial Patrol started to siege this fortress aggressively.

After these days of accumulation, the grudge between the military and the Imperial Senate had reached a boiling point since the soldiers hated the Imperial Senate for being so timid and making so many agreements that were shameful and in these corrupt nobles’ self-interest. Since the Imperial Senate had control over some legions and armed forces, it was critical to take out the corrupt nobles who were in control of the Imperial Senate. Otherwise, if news of this operation were to be leaked before the corrupt nobles could be killed, the commanders who had secretly conspired with these nobles might launch a full-scale uprising, and the situation would get out of hand.

For a moment, shouts resonated in the sky.

The fortress that the Imperial Senate was in seemed like a little boat on the ocean during a storm, looking like it was going to flip over at any time.

“They are rebelling! They are rebelling! They dare to siege the Imperial Senate! These damn traitors! These soldiers should all be hung, including their families!”

“Why is this happening? Why is this happening?”

“What should we do? We can’t keep this up! We can’t defend any longer!”

Inside the fortress, the noble members of the Imperial Senate who were usually arrogant now looked depressed and terrified. Their legs turned to jelly, and their faces paled as they were extremely anxious.

“Shut up! Why are you shouting? Damn it! They are from [Iron Blood Legion] and the Imperial Patrol! How is this happening? These two idiots, Arshavin and Dominguez, are working together? Damn it! They dare to start a military riot?”

A gloomy senior who had grey hair that was combed to the back of his head and an aquiline nose stood at a high ground and looked at the soldiers who were charging forward like a flood, and a cold smile appeared on his wrinkly face.


“Mr. President, what should we do? The defense wall is short, and it could only block them for a little while. Soon, these soldiers will barge in! We are underprepared; we only have fewer than 2,000 soldiers with us. We must be decisive!” Six nobles who were also wearing fancy robes stood beside the President of the Imperial Senate. They were usually arrogant and gloomy, but they were panicking now.

“Hehehe, Dominguez and Arshavin, these two damn kids want to get rid of us once for all. Then, they can’t blame us. These are only ordinary soldiers; what can they do? Don’t forget, we Imperial Senate have three Moon-Class Elites as our guardians. It will be effortless for them to take us out of here!”

The President of the Imperial Senate looked at ease, and he wasn’t worried.

Hearing his words, the other nobles finally heaved sighs of relief. That’s right! They had three Moon-Class Elites on their side, and one of them was an old monster who was famous in St. Petersburg. Ordinary soldiers couldn’t do anything to them.

Seeing the tragic and one-sided battle that was happening below them, the President of the Imperial Senate thought for a bit and said while gritting his teeth, “However, it would be too easy for these two damn kids if we leave like that.”

As a vicious expression appeared on his face, he continued, “We were doing a lot of things for them! Damn! Since they want to do this, then they can’t blame us for being immoral! Hehe, two legions are still under the control of our Imperial Senate inside and outside St. Petersburg. Send a Moon-Class Guardian and tell them that Elder Prince Arshavin is trying to take the throne by force, and he is sieging the Imperial Senate and the Royal Palace with his soldiers of [Iron Blood Legion]. Order them to attack the campsite of [Iron Blood Legion] and the Imperial Military Headquarters. Also, tell them that they could kill and rob in the city. Women, money… they can keep whatever they seize.”
“Let the soldiers go loose? Allow them to commit robbery and arson?”

This vicious command made all other nobles gasp in shock.

“Even if we issue this command, our chance of succeeding is still low. The two princes control more than half of the military forces of Zenit, and our two legions are no match for them. Also, the Elder Prince is Zenit’s God of War. Since he has already surrounded the Imperial Senate, he must be prepared for our counterattacks,” a noble said in worry.

“Hahaha! What can he do even if he anticipates this? He doesn’t have Moon-Class Elites under his command! Hehe, I only need St. Petersburg to get chaotic and turn the Royal Family into a mess. It doesn’t matter even if blood creates rivers in this city, even if those two legions get wiped out. Let them be the sacrifice for the viciousness of the Royal Family and our newly gained glory! Hahaha! We only need one night of blood and disorder. Mr. D’Alessandro will be here tomorrow morning before the sunrise. Hehe, even if these two damn kids can command tens of millions of ordinary soldiers, what is the use?”

The wrinkles on the face of the President of the Imperial Senate looked like lines of curses, and his tone was vicious and chilling.

His plan was sinister and no different from committing treason. It was sickening!

If his plan were successful, even if the Royal Family regained control of St. Petersburg and suppressed the rebellion, the hundreds of years old St. Petersburg would be full of damage and no different to a dead city.

“But…” A member of the Imperial Senate said warily, “We don’t know what attitude D’Alessandro will have toward us. I heard that this man is also cruel and arrogant…”

“Hehe, don’t worry. I already got in contact with him on my own. Tonight, we are the planted agents. As long as we can cause chaos in St. Petersburg, we will be the most honorable officials tomorrow. We will still be of high status, and we will still have a lot of resources. In fact, we will get even more! From tomorrow and onward, the Imperial Senate will be the real ruler of this empire! Everyone here today will also be the most prestigious people on this land! No one will be able to threaten us!” The President of the Imperial Senate laughed and said proudly.

After hearing his words, the people around him gasped.

Since this old man said this, it meant that he already prepared to commit treason. He looked excited but was still a little worried.

His words were clear, but he was forcing the nobles in the fortress to commit treason with him.

Noticing the hesitation on people’s faces, the President of the Imperial Senate shouted, “Guys, this is not committing treason! The Royal Family was cruel and vicious first! We are only doing this for self-defense! Those two stupid princes want to protect that King of Chambord whose hands are stained by the blood of nobles. As long as this butcher is alive, we can’t live freely at all! Now, the Royal Family is launching this cleaning operation. We have no other choice! The Royal Family is pushing us! Even if we die, we need to get the Royal Family and the entire St. Petersburg to die with us! Tonight, let’s turn this city into a living hell!”

Under the illumination of fire and blood, the President of the Imperial Senate looked vicious like a devil.

Suddenly, a light beam dashed out of the fortress.

“Someone is trying to escape! Quickly! A Moon-Class Elite! Quickly stop him!” the soldiers of [Iron Blood Legion] shouted.
