Chapter 124 – Negotiations (2)
Edited by Ilesyt
â€œWe have to carefully consider what to do nextâ€¦.â€ Ye Chengtian and
company wrinkled their eyebrows and the atmosphere became tense.
â€œExcuse me, are you the patriarch of the Ye family, Ye Yi?â€ Suddenly,
a person appeared and spoke to Ye Yi.
Ye Yi looked the person up and down. He didnâ€™t seem very surprised that
he was recognized, because they hadnâ€™t taken any special measures to
conceal their identity. As long as someone was focused, they could easily
â€œCorrect, that is indeed me!â€ Ye Yi replied. He then looked at the
person to see if he was going to say what he expected.
Along their journey many people had already extended them olive branches.
Ever since they had left the Soaring Sky Empireâ€™s sphere of influence,
there had constantly been people asking if they could be allies.
It seemed that every time they arrived in a kingdom like this, some
people would ask.
â€œI represent the Thirteen Kingdoms Alliance!â€ The person said, â€œI
wish to talk to you about the possibility of cooperation!â€
As expected, it was yet another person who wished to pull in Ye Chengtian
and companyâ€™s strength!
â€œI think that if you know our identities, then you should also know our
position. Up until now we have refused to join any forces!!â€ Ye Yi very
directly rejected, â€œThank you for your offer and I hope we will have
the chance to cooperate in the future!â€
â€œWait! Sir Ye, perhaps you donâ€™t know, but we are not a single
kingdom, we consist of an alliance of several kingdoms. You wouldnâ€™t be
joining any kingdom, your position wouldnâ€™t change!â€ The person
The Thirteen Kingdoms Alliance definitely was special in this way and
could stay detached from the affairs of a single country, butâ€¦
â€œNot joining a single country but joining the Thirteen Kingdoms
Alliance is a false cover thatâ€™s even worse!â€ Seventh brother said.
He and Seventh sister-in-law happened to be outside, so they avoided the
coup. Moreover, they were able to escape Zhao Yarouâ€™s assassins when
they came, and now they had already regrouped with everyone else.
Right now itâ€™s necessary to talk a bit about Seventh brother. The Ye
familyâ€™s Seventh brother seemed to always handle civil affairs and give
off a weak feeling, but in reality, he was a master of concealment and
was far more powerful than people imagined.
Within Ye Langâ€™s generation, he definitely could place within the top
3, and it seemed that apart from Ye Lang himself, each and every one of
his counterparts were experts as well.
After their escape, the two of them had received a secret Ye family
message that explained what had happened. They then chose to directly
head towards Ye Yiâ€™s group rather than stay behind and do pointless
Within the Ye family, Seventh brother belonged to Ye Chengtianâ€™s line.
Although he could stay behind in the Ye family and manage civil affairs,
but his father had already left, so why would he stay behind? Second, he
was afraid Zhao Yarou would want to deal with Seventh sister-in-law, so
for the sake of his wife he would definitely not stay behind in the
Soaring Sky Empireâ€™s Ye family!
As for Seventh sister-in-law, up until now she couldnâ€™t believe that
her own Eighth sister could do something like that, so when she saw
Princess Qi, the feelings she felt could not be put into words!
â€œWe can promise this, no single kingdom can request you to do anything,
but on the other hand, they will have a duty to fulfill your requests!â€
The person immediately explained.
â€œOh, this sounds pretty attractive!â€ Seventh brother said. He was
very adept in these negotiations, so it had always been him who took care
of this kind of thing.
The person looked in all directions and then respectfully said: â€œThis
is not a good place to talk, if youâ€™re interested we can go to the
palace to discuss!â€
â€œIf youâ€™d like to talk, we can, I need to see if you have any
unexpected conditions for me!â€ Seventh brother agreed, perhaps it was
because he had been bored lately, so he agreed to go take a look.
Of course, him going to discuss did not mean everyone else would as well.
This was also something Ye Chengtian and company understood, so they
didnâ€™t pay attention to what he said.

Ye Chengtian and everyone else only said: â€œHurry up and go, donâ€™t
delay the journey!â€
â€œWhat hurry up and go, weâ€™re all going, our negotiations might take
all night.â€ Seventh brother very earnestly said, and when he turned
around he secretly gave them a meaningful glance.
â€œ??â€ The group was confused, but very quickly Seventh sister-in-law
and Third brother somewhat understood.
â€œCough cough, yes thatâ€™s right, letâ€™s all go, Iâ€™m sure this
palace has places to accommodate us?â€ Third brother coughed and said.
At this point, it seemed everyone understood. This Seventh brother wanted
everyone to go to the palace for free food and shelter and force others
to accommodate them. This also saved them the trouble of having to search
for an inn, but more importantly it saved money!
This Seventh brother not only knew how to negotiate, he was even better
at managing finances. In the past, he had helped Ye Lang make money.
Right now he was a bit regretful, at that time why had he helped the
empire save money, he should have been more selfish!
Living in the palace didnâ€™t just help save money and time, it also
provided a bunch of free bodyguards. Right now, these people definitely
didnâ€™t have any nefarious plans against them, and even if they did,
they couldnâ€™t openly act against them.
â€œOkay, then letâ€™s all go!â€ Ye Yi was somewhat helpless in the face
of the younger generation, but he did like this side of their
Therefore this group of people started heading off towards the palace,
no, it should be called the city lordâ€™s mansion instead. At least in
the eyes of these people, this palace was just an ordinary mansion!
To quote Ye Lanyu:
â€œLittle Qi, is this the palace? It looks pretty poor, not even a tenth
of my familyâ€™s home! With so many people, is there even room?â€
â€œIt should be fine! Itâ€™ll just be a bit cramped. Letâ€™s stick to
having 3 people a room.â€ Seventh princess replied. Along their journey,
the three of them had often ended up together; jer, Ye Lanyu, and Zhen
Xiaoyan as the third.
â€œItâ€™s not that bad, my house is only about this big!â€ Zhen Xiaoyan
said. Her home was just an ordinary noble familyâ€™s home. Naturally it
was much smaller than the Ye family home, but even so it was about as big
as this â€œpalaceâ€.
â€œItâ€™s okay, Itâ€™s still better than an inn!â€
Even a sparrow was anatomically complete, and this was a sparrow only
relatively speaking, in the eyes of normal people this mansion was plenty
(TL note: thereâ€™s a Chinese saying that a sparrow is anatomically
complete indicating that you shouldnâ€™t look down on small things)
Ye Chengtian and company entered the city lordâ€™s mansion (it really
could only be called a city lordâ€™s mansion), and after a short
greeting, proceeded to each find a room to rest in. Seventh brother was
left behind by himself to negotiate.
â€œWhat are they doing?â€ the Thirteen Kingdoms Allianceâ€™s
representatives were startled. They originally thought that they would be
talking with Ye Yi and the rest, yet unexpectedly they greeted them and
then proceeded to leave.
Seventh brother slightly smiled and said: â€œTheyâ€™re tired from their
journey. I can negotiate by myself, I have the authority! As for them,
please arrange a banquet to welcome them!â€
Seventh brotherâ€™s smile was very bright and very sincereâ€¦â€¦
