Chapter 1697 How Dare You Touch My Men
The king cast a displeased look at the high priest beside him.
However, the high priest did not even look at him.
In short, the king had no intention of letting Lucy become the royal concubine.
The palace chief said, “If that’s so, it’s all right. Your Majesty, the next test is fortune-telling. The Cyanians are good at this. I believe his daughter won’t disappoint.”
“Okay. What do you know about her specialty?” the king asked.
“I’ve checked. She is good at geomancy. We only need to ask related questions later. And the daughter of Mordunian is good in phrenology. That’s easy too,” the chief palace comforted.
Only then did the king heave a sigh of relief.
Even though fortune-telling was a mysterious thing, it was somehow well-proven. After all, it had a history of over a thousand years. Many things were influenced by it.
With that, the final round began.
Like the palace chief expected, after they asked the first geomancy question, the lady from Cyanian furrowed her brows after first glance.
“Mr. Priest, this is not a good location. Water is an essential element in geomancy. Mountains surround this place on all sides. And it is filled with sands below. It is a bad spot!” The sixteen-year-old girl pointed at a spot on the sand table.

Her statement left the entire altar in absolute bewilderment.
The cemetery was the tomb of the chief of an ethnic group in the tribe. However, it had been hundreds of years. It was precisely because of this tomb that the ethnic group perished.
The king and the high priest showed much admiration for this bright young lady.
Lucy’s gaze darkened as she saw that.
Next was the lady from Mordunian, who was also a promising candidate. She scanned the surroundings and suddenly locked her eyes on the king’s face.
Instantly, her expression changed.
“What’s going on? Do you want to read phrenology for me?” The king acted quite friendly toward her.
It seemed he had already considered her as his future daughter-in-law.
The lady from Mordunian immediately knelt before him. “I wouldn’t dare to. But, I see some bad omens from your Majesty’s face. I…”
“Are you cursing the king?” All of a sudden, a cold voice interrupted her.
The lady from Mordunian immediately lifted her head. Her face paled in fright. “N-No, that’s not what I meant…”
“No? Then why did you say such a thing? Did you see dark shadows on the king’s forehead and the sunken cheekbones, so you derived that it was the omen of death?” Lucy stood up and accused the lady of Mordunian, who was wearing a Phoenix Coronet.
She tried to embarrass the latter in front of the crowd.
At that instant, everyone at the altar went into an uproar.
It is our king she is talking about. How could she say something so bold without any proof?
Everyone stared at the lady who was still kneeling on the ground. Meanwhile, the king’s expression darkened after hearing what she said. “What nonsense are you talking about?”
“I… I…” she choked on her words.
“Your Majesty, please don’t be mad. I know a little about phrenology too. My mother used to be a famous fortune-teller back in Elysium. She had taught me a lot. Why don’t you let me have a look?” Lucy even started to recommend herself in the end.
Holy cr*p. Does she know phrenology too?
The crowd around the altar paled upon seeing that scene.
Riley had a bad feeling about it too.
Lucy walked toward the king, knelt, and touched the king’s hand for a while. As expected, she used a different statement to overturn what the lady of Mordunian had said just now.
“Your Majesty, you definitely don’t have the omen of death. Nonetheless, it is time that you take care of your body. As you have been enjoying life too much, the larger acupoints in your body were blocked.”
“Really?” The king was pleased to hear that.
“Of course. Why don’t you let me perform acupuncture on you? You will recover in no time.” With that, Lucy took out a long thin needle from her pocket.
At this point, it was almost confirmed that Lucy would be the one winning this competition.
She had an advantage in fortune-telling, and she even possessed medical knowledge. Undoubtedly, she was the best candidate for the future concubine.
The entire altar was overwhelmed with rage.
Everyone from the two tribes was stomping their feet in wrath.
However, the king was smiling in satisfaction. The crowd knew they could do nothing to eliminate Lucy.
Riley was beyond enraged as well.
She shifted her gaze toward Kurt.
She was bewildered to see him still indifferent as usual. He looked as though the whole episode had nothing to do with him.
When Riley could not bear to watch the outcome and was ready to leave, a loud humming sound suddenly appeared above her head.
What is that?
The crowd immediately lifted their heads, including Riley.
Everyone was left in awe as they saw a helicopter appearing in the sky. It was descending slowly toward the altar.
Holy sh*t. What is going on now?
Riley widened her eyes in bewilderment.
Upon seeing that scene, Kurt, who had been emotionless, finally showed some emotional turbulence on his face.
After the helicopter finally landed, a lady wearing a snow-white dress and a princess crown came out.
Kurt was overwhelmed with shock.
“What’s with the hurry? I’m not even here yet. Mr. King, do you think the Jadesons can not be compared to the minorities in your tribe?” Vivian said.
