Chapter 74: Pounce on Him (2)
“Don’t mention the target for collaboration every year, but it’s a lot of effort to continue the collaboration with current businesses. Ranging from the direct funds to details of publicity events, there is no way for us to be at a state of balance with the other party at all times.”
The system seemed to be confused and it was rare that it said nothing.
Ye Yu was too lazy to waste time explaining.
She glanced at the nearing bamboo forest and squinted her eyes, softly laughing.
“Therefore, the element that determines the success of the negotiation is not whether the two parties are evenly matched. What is most important…is mutual benefits.”
When the system finally found a chance to interrupt, it hurriedly asked, “What the host is saying is that Xuan Bin will also benefit from Xuan Yi leaving the palace to go on tours?”
“Of course.” Ye Yu said, “Although the original novel didn’t talk about Princess Ye’s process of negotiation, do you think this princess has a clever mind?”
The system truthfully denied.
“Therefore, since she said she was able to “persuade” Xuan Bin means that there is only one possibility. This means that Xuan Bin also wishes for this to happen.”
The system was in deep thought.
Up until Ye Yu got on the path towards the bamboo, the system suddenly excitedly called out loud, “Ah, I know! It’s the underground palace!”
Ye Yu curled her lips and said, “Right, according to the novel’s storyline, Xuan Bin probably doesn’t even know that after Xuan Yi’s cultivation was destroyed, he coincidentally found the underground palace which he had been seeking for. From Xuan Bin’s perspective, Xuan Yi shouldn’t know anything about the underground palace. Therefore, for so many years, he had been ordering people to search for the place in secret. Even more, he needed to be cautious and not startle Xuan Yi who has the bloodline heritage…”
The system happily answered, “So, Xuan Bin is giving him the opportunity to find the underground palace.”
Ye Yu nodded as if she understood, saying, “At least, that’s what he thinks.”
After a moment of pause, Ye Yu glanced afar at the devil palace and gently pursed her lips.
“I am also a bit curious…shouldn’t Xuan Yi who wasn’t supposed to know everything already guessed the reason why Xuan Bin had been treating him so strangely all these years?”
The “negotiation” between Xuan Bin seemed to be more successful than what Ye Yu had imagined.
Half an hour later, she was already out of the General’s residence.
The gatekeeper politely greeted her out of the door from behind.
Ye Sheng, who was standing by Ye Residence’s horse carriage, opened the door.
“Princess, do we need to return to the residence?”
“There is no need. Directly send me back to the palace.”
Ye Yu got into the carriage.
Ye Sheng answered out of the carriage and looked regretfully.
The door closed.
Inside, Ye Yu prepared to close her eyes and rest for a bit when the system who had heard “mission complete” became excited for a few moments had said, “Host, this Ye Sheng likes you.”
Ye Yu didn’t even bother to listen.
“He likes Princess Ye, not me. What does this have to do with me?”
“I heard the other systems say that when the hosts are living within the role of this current world, they’re easily seen through by the people who like them.”
“Oh.” Ye Yu didn’t react and she said, “Well, it seems like he only likes Princess Ye on the surface.”
The system was speechless.
“However —” Ye Yu suddenly opened her eyes and said, “Besides you, how many other systems are harming the world?”
The system said vaguely, “There are some more.”
Ye Yu said, “…Then why did I get you?”
“One system is in charge of one world within the novel.”
The system shrunk back, feeling wronged.
Ye Sheng who was driving was a Youth Realm cultivator. Plus, Ye Residence’s horse carriage was considered half a device. It didn’t take too long before Ye Yu returned to the palace.
The horse carriage was only able to get up to the inner palace’s door. Therefore, Ye Yu had stopped the carriage in advance.
Ye Yu got off of the horse carriage and dismissed Ye Yu, walking through the door alone.
The guards by the doors wanted to say something, but they didn’t; they ended up bowing at her.
“…Something seems off.”
