Under the management of [Old Man] Zolasc, the local branches of the [Letter Office] had popped up everywhere in the big cities and military towns of Leon under the cover of proper businesses.
Fei entered this shop with curiosity.
The great hall was wide, and all kinds of weapons were hanging on the walls. Silver and chilly light flashed in the shop, and it looked majestic. This shop's business was good; mercenaries, soldiers, and warriors came and went, and some merchants and young n.o.blemen were also choosing weapons.
Fei walked to the [Sword Wall] and casually took off a thin and short sword.
This was a fast sword, and its body looked like a dash of silver light. The blade was already sharpened, and a chilly aura appeared after Fei wiped the blade with his fingers. It was clear that this sword was made by Blacksmith Charsi using the rare forging technique from the Diablo World. Although this sword wasn't a combat weapon, it was still a precious weapon.
There were also other swords on the [Sword Wall], and they were also on this level. No wonder this shop was doing so well.
“h.e.l.lo, are you looking for a sword for self-protection? What do you think of this one? Are you satisfied with it? If not, you can just tell us what you are looking for. Our shop has all kinds of weapons, and I'm sure that one of them will fit your taste.”
A fragrant and pretty figure appeared by Fei's side.
She was a saleswoman who was in a dress that looked like a cheongsam. Her short red hair made her look refres.h.i.+ng, and her eyes, nose, and mouth were delicate. Although her chest wasn't big, her figure was graceful under the emphasis of her uniform.
Right now, she was looking at Fei with a gentle smile.
Fei smiled back at her.
This type of uniform was designed by him in his free time, and the décor of the shop, as well as the hiring of young women as salespeople rather than burly blacksmiths, were all ideas he came up with when he was bored.
[Old Man] Zolasc was indeed a genius.
He had executed Fei's seemingly strange ideas perfectly, and the returns generated by the businesses were great. The [Letter Office] was involved in many fields, but weaponry, magic crystals, banking, and food were the main industries. On top of disguising the real ident.i.ty of these local branches, these shops also created a lot of wealth for the Chambord Kingdom. Another big thing was that the high-level magic crystals that Fei combined from low-level ones using Horadric Cube could be sold through these channels.
After placing the sword back onto the wall, Fei pretended to look around before saying in a half-jokingly tone, “Oh, I see. I want to buy the most expensive weapon in your shop. How much is it?”
He acted like someone who recently got a lot of money.
The smile on this red-haired girl's face froze for a second, and she observed Fei in detail.
“Although this young man is handsome, especially his starry and mystical eyes, he doesn't look rich. However, his tone is…” This saleswoman thought to herself.
Then, she frowned and explained patiently with the smile, “When you are picking a weapon, it is best to get the one that fits your strength and your habit. Each weapon has its own characteristics, and the best weapon is the one that fits you. Typically, the most expensive weapon isn't the best weapon for you.”
She sounded caring, and no disdain or impatience could be sensed.
“Huh?” Fei was a little surprised.
He knew that the salespeople whom the [Letter Office] hired were paid uniquely. Since Fei brought over the business ideas from Earth, these salespeople were paid a base wage with a commission. Fei thought that this girl would be thrilled when he asked the question and would bring him to the most senior person here. Then, Fei would be able to reveal his ident.i.ty to that person and ask for the news.
However, this girl's direct reply surprised Fei a little.
“What is your name?” Fei grabbed a double-handed sword casually and knocked it with his finger as he asked.
This girl blushed a little; it seemed like the appropriate response after being asked this personal question by a handsome young man.
Seeing that Fei didn't pay attention to her and was observing the sword, she quickly hid her embarra.s.sment and replied, “Grace Ellen.”
After that, Ellen's face burned again, and she thought, “What is happening? This never happened before. Why is my head fuzzy? When I look at this man's bright and expressive eyes, my heart races on its own…”
“Grace Ellen? Nice name. Alright, Ellen, I want to see your manager. Is that possible?” Fei asked as he placed the double-handed sword back onto the wall.
“Eh…. This… you can,” Grace Ellen replied with a smile while acting calm.
However, she was quickly surprised by her own answer.
“d.a.m.n it! What are you saying, Ellen? Are you dumb? You should know how busy the manager is, and he doesn't meet with ordinary customers!” Ellen thought to herself. She was planning to say no, but she somehow blurted that out; it was the opposite of what she wanted to say!
“Thanks a lot! Please lead the way,” Fei replied with a smile.
“Ah? This… that… ok…” Ellen murmured.
“d.a.m.n it! I'm done!” she thought as she pinched herself. She felt like she was under a spell and couldn't refuse this handsome young man. Every time she was about to say no, something different came out of her mouth.
After walking past the busy crowd and climbing the stairs, they reached the fourth floor and stopped in front of a room in the center which had a large red door. While they were climbing up, Ellen felt like she was going to get fired, and all her co-workers were looking at her in surprise.
Knock! Knock! Knock!
“Please come in!” a dignified voice sounded from the inside.
Grace Ellen was about to cry. She lightly pushed open the door and led Fei inside.
She nodded at the white-haired senior who was sitting behind the desk which was placed before a floor-to-ceiling window and said nervously, “Manager Kane, this guest… he… he wants to see you.”
Manager Kane had whitish-silver hair, and he looked thin. However, he didn't look old.
He was wearing a black suit which was popular in the Leon Empire, and he had a pair of gold-framed crystal gla.s.ses on his nose. He looked graceful yet energetic, seeming like a n.o.ble.

However, his bright eyes behind the crystal gla.s.ses looked calculative.
Hearing Ellen's words, he looked at Fei in surprise. Then, he looked back at Ellen who was blus.h.i.+ng with her head lowered, and a trace of anger appeared on his face. However, he didn't express his emotion.
With a bright smile, he waved his hand and signaled Ellen to leave before standing up and greeting Fei.
Then, he asked with a confused expression, “Sir, you are…”
In the [Letter Office], except for [Old Man] Zolasc and [Young Man] Modric, only a few top-level officials knew that the organization belonged to the Chambord Kingdom, and most of them didn't know the big boss, Fei.
Although Kane was responsible for the business in Talon City, he didn't know who Fei was.
Fei smiled and sat on the fancy Narra Wood chair on the other side of the desk, not saying a word.
However, his spirit energy already spread out and scanned the room.
At least six Moon-Cla.s.s magic arrays were placed in the room, and there were two small teleportation arrays, two secret tunnels, and six Five-Star Warriors in the hidden compartment.
This room was very secure. Even if the official military of Leon came to siege this building, this setup would give Kane enough time to destroy all the doc.u.ments before leaving this place using either the teleportation array or the secret tunnel.
The professionalism that the [Letter Office] achieved was beyond Fei's estimations.
“Sir, why are you looking for me? Please speak.” Kane frowned slightly.
His intuition told him that this young man in front of him was powerful and dangerous. Therefore, he moved his right hand to his back and made a hand gesture. If anything went wrong in the next second, the magic arrays would be activated, and the warriors hidden in the compartment would attack.
Fei had noticed all this already. With a smile on his face, he opened his palm and revealed a delicate black token. It was made from pure [Black Stone Essence], and it was in the shape of a black dog. It was made by Blacksmith Charsi, and it was life-like, making others feel like it was alive.
“Ah, you are…” Kane was shocked.
After he carefully inspected the token and confirmed that it was authentic, he single-kneeled and said respectfully, “I'm Solomon Kane. Greetings, Master!”
