The Strongest War God - Chapter 262
Chapter 262 The Terrifying Luther Carden
It seemed that Hugo Skeeter had long known his identity!
However, Sammy Dudley’s cold sword had yet to return to its sheath. He turned around, and his cold gaze landed on Hugo. It was obvious that he wanted to settle things with him.
Those who colluded with foreign martial artists would definitely be investigated.
Braydon Neal acted as if he did not see it, silently allowing this scene to unfold.
“Marquis Dudley, you have been a hidden agent in Namar for ten years. Do you still remember the eight ironclad laws of the northern army?” Hugo smiled bitterly.
“Of course, I remember!” Sammy pointed over. Hugo rolled his eyes. He had already hinted so clearly, but Sammy actually pointed his blade at him!
This was simply too much!
They were all brothers. Was there a need to force him to be so ruthless?
He had to force him to reveal his hidden identity!
“Don’t point your sword at your comrades!” Hugo said in a low voice.
Sammy almost exploded.
His face instantly darkened!
Sammy was not a fool and instantly understood Hugo’s words.
He was the north’s hidden agent!
How many spies had Second Brother Carden planted in the country?
What kind of people were the 100,000 hidden agents?
This was too much!
What made Sammy even more suspicious was that Second Brother Carden was in charge of the north’s hidden agents. A few years ago, the northern army’s secret archives recorded that there were 100,000 hidden agents in the northern army scattered all over the world.
Was there really only 100,000 of them in the northern army now?
Sammy did not believe Second Brother Carden anymore.
That damn cripple was even more evil than Blake Matthews. When he was young, his mind was very terrifying. He had never lost a bet with his brothers.
At this moment.
Hugo turned around and cupped his fists. He knelt on one knee and shouted, “Northern army’s hidden agent, Hugo Skeeter, greets the Commander!”
Braydon stood on the roof, lost in the wind. He was silent for a long time.
“Did Luther instruct you to come to the Neal family to discuss cooperation on behalf of Hugo Corporation?” he asked.
“No, I’m a hidden agent in the north, but I’m also the Young Chairman of Hugo Corporation. I still need to work. I didn’t know that this was the Commander’s home before I came!”
He had to explain!
If Braydon had a misunderstanding, he would definitely beat Cripple Carden to death.
If Hugo was ordered by Luther Carden, it meant that he was interfering with Braydon Neal’s life and using the north’s hidden agents to make things difficult for him.
However, Hugo was even more worried. He had been forced to expose his identity.
From the situation just now, anyone with a brain could tell that if Hugo did not admit to it, he might have been executed on the spot by Sammy in the next second!
That was why Hugo grumbled deep down, thinking that Sammy had forced him to reveal his identity.
Previously, Hugo did not reveal his identity because he did not expect Sammy to implicate him.
More importantly, if he exposed his identity, outsiders like Ichiro Takagi would definitely die.
There was a rule the north’s hidden agents abided by: they would not show themselves unless they had received military orders.
The key was that Sammy’s cold sword had already touched Hugo’s nose. If he did not reveal himself, he would have really been chopped up.
Hugo was not a pedantic old man, so he decisively admitted that he was a hidden agent from the north.
Braydon landed in a flash, his steps calm as he stretched out his fair left hand.
In the end, Hugo took off a necklace from his neck. The pendant was a small silver Qilin. There was a unique number below it. In the secret warehouse of the northern army, one could find it by entering the code.
The symbol of the north’s hidden agent was indeed the little Qilin.
But it was divided into three levels!
Bronze was the lowest level, corresponding to the warrior level.
Silver was the second level, corresponding to the warlord level.
Gold was the highest level, corresponding to the War God level!
Sammy’s keepsake was the little golden Qilin. Other than the powerful northern army, no other force would be willing to send a War God level figure out as a hidden agent.
It was extremely dangerous to plant hidden agents. If they lost a War God for no reason, it would be so painful even for the other powerful families that they would not be able to sleep for a night.
Sammy decisively withdrew his cold sword. His face was dark, and he did not say a word. He hated Cripple Carden to the core. Braydon glanced at the silver Qilin and knew if it was real or fake. He returned it to Hugo and smiled. “Your hidden agent identity has been exposed. Do you want to return to the northern territory or stay in the Hugo Corporation?”
“There are many things to do in the company, so I should continue to be a hidden agent. Besides, only the Commander and marquis Sammy know my identity, so there’s no danger!”
Hugo knew that his identity was not considered exposed.
This was because Braydon and Sammy were not a problem, and they would not reveal his identity as a hidden agent.
Braydon respected Hugo’s choice.
“Why did you want to protect Ichiro earlier?” Sammy frowned.
“This was King Carden’s order. Use Ichiro Takagi to get close to the Zuko Association and investigate the matter of the Ludwig army!”
Hugo did not hide his purpose. Ichiro’s grandfather was a member of the million-strong army outside the borders. He relied on attacking the Ludwig army and made meritorious contributions, and he was transferred to the upper echelons of the Zuko Association.
Luther Carden probably wanted to use this method to continue infiltrating and gather information about the past.
When the time came, the results of the other investigations would be filed, and all the information would be gathered in the northern territory. They would use this to find the person or force who had schemed against the Ludwig army back then.
However, this path was considered dead. Even Ichiro was killed by Sammy. Blake Matthews had even personally left and crossed the border to Banko, bringing the northern military sword token to the Zuko Association.
The reaction of the Zuko Association was the same as the reaction of Banko.
For the sake of a War God from the Zuko Association, they were not willing to provoke the War God of the North!
Therefore, they made a concession!
If they did not give in, they would have to pay an even more painful price when the War God of the North personally descended upon Banko.
At its peak, the northern army revered King Braydon Neal and was feared by the surrounding countries.
With the power of a country, no one dared to provoke the current northern army.
The concession of the Zuko Association was to hand over Ichiro’s father, Sasakan Takagi! Blake had killed him with a single sword strike at the entrance of the Zuko Association, which infuriated Banko’s martial artists. However, no one dared to stop Blake as he left.
Banko still had to send someone to send him off.
Otherwise, if something happened to Blake in Danko, no matter what the reason was, the Northern King would definitely lead the cavalry of the north and march straight into Danko.
Braydon received the news from the northern territory and smiled. “If the Zuko Association doesn’t have the Black Sword Association, they won’t have the guts!”
“If Banko gives in like this, our northern army will have no excuse to attack the Zuko Association.”
Sammy lowered his voice. Braydon had asked Blake to give the northern military sword token to the Zuko Association, which was a humiliation to Banko! He wanted to anger them!
As long as Banko made a move against Blake, Braydon would issue the second Northern King’s order and mobilize the three armies of the north to rush to the Ludwig mountain range. They would start a fierce battle and take back the 36 islands of Ludwig. If it was possible, the people of the northern army would probably invade the territory of Banko.
The debt of 700,000 soldiers of the Ludwig army would be paid by Banko with blood.
This was how terrifying Braydon was.
Silently, he was already prepared to fight Banko head-on.
For the northern army cavalry, they did not need to make any preparations. They just needed to follow orders.
This was because the northern army was in a state of war every day. Facing the eight countries outside the borders, they looked like they were ready to start a war at any time. This made the families in Namar feel terrified.
