Chapter 130: To Save and to Kill (1)
Her words caused Jing Yun to glance at her, his tears made his eyes seem cloudy like fog. It was hard to imagine that such a person would become so cold in the future like an indifferent killing machine. She won’t allow him to become like that in this life.
“Quit joking around, I want to know, I haven’t come by for a while now, but how did you manage to fix it so fast? Furthermore, you’re revered like a deity amongst the people with the power to split mountains and part seas…” Speaking up to this point, he couldn’t help but joke, “With just your small body?”
“You want to know my secret? You better just save your energy.”
After the shocking display was revealed a few times, startling the people, Gong Yi Mo only ever used the explosives at night.
So she cut directly to the chase, “Back to the point, regarding the ships, do you have any thoughts?”
Jing Yun answered, “I have a few ships on hand, but it’s not nearly enough to expand. So this time, I took a small ship factory on the Hongze River. I trust that it will come in handy.”
He really thinks through it well. He even bought it along the Hongze River.
Gong Yi Mo shook her head, “Those ships, I’ve seen them before. They are very beautiful and intricate. They are comparable to great works of art; however, those aren’t the kind of ships I want.”
Jing Yun arched an eyebrow, “The Great Yu’s shipbuilding is number one amongst the four countries.”
“Have you seen the rest of the world? Aren’t the countries that lie beside the sea the true number one?” Hearing herself speak of such far away matters, Gong Yi Mo laughed, “The thing I don’t like about it is that it takes too long to build. Building a large ship in a medium-sized shipyard still takes at least 3 months. Who knows how many would be completed by the time the canal is finished?”
This kind of problem wasn’t something an investor like Jing Yun could solve. He handed an object over to Gong Yi Mo. She took it and was surprised to find that it was the contract to the factory.
Jing Yun smiled, “I can’t just take advantage of this deal with no benefits to you. This factory deed is the proof of my sincerity.”
His smile was moving. Even though the 17 year old him was still not fully grown, but with no future accidents, he would be capable of making cities fall.
Gong Yi Mo smiled and accepted it, “You didn’t come here just for this today, right?”
“Of course not,” Jing Yun raised an eyebrow pridefully, “I know that you are very concerned about that kid in at Xi Zhou. I have some news on him, do you want to hear it or not?”
Gong Yi Mo’s face turned serious, “Tell me about it.”
At this moment, Jing Yun also put away his smile and turned serious, “This is only my guess but I am a traitor to the Yu Heng country. Jun Shang is also getting old and a little confused! I secretly visited some time ago and I believe that their intentions for coming aren’t simple.”
Thinking of the West County that borders Luo Ye, Gong Yi Mo pondered for a moment and suddenly smiled, “No hurry, even if there is a war, it’s still one or two years away.”
It was troublesome to wage war during this time period. Preparations before war take a long time and by that time, she would’ve already called Gong Jue over to guard the canal. As for who was going to fight the war, what does it have to do with her?
Gong Yi Mo’s words made Jing Yun sigh slightly. The one he was worried about was definitely not Gong Jue, but rather that Jun Shang would truly do something unwise and make the Great Yu’s people suffer.
She thought of it that way, but when she was responding to Gong Jue’s letter, she still told him this news and warned him to be careful.
They were also in a frenzy with work on Gong Jue’s side.
The weather was warm and there was also a lot of sand. However, the people digging the wells made a lot of progress! They thought about it simply: completing this thing would benefit their children and grandchildren.
