Chapter 323: Big-game Hunting (2)
From behind the curtains, Gong Yimo spoke again, “As for His Majesty, I can find this deal to be a loss on my part no matter what. War horses are hard to come by. Since you are here, why don’t we continue to discuss the issue with the numbers?”
Her words caused Jin Sheng’s face to turn green. He thought he was already being shameless enough, but he never would have expected the other part to be even worse! Such ludicrous demands! And he even wasted a beauty of a son for nothing!
So, under his extreme anger, he couldn’t care about anything anymore. He straight out refused, “You think we are afraid of you? If you want to go back on your word, then fine! We shall cut our ties and so be it! They are only 10,000 horses, we do not want them anymore!”
Jin Yun was shocked. “Wasn’t it a thousand?”
When he heard that, Jin Sheng shot him a look of sympathy. “Silly child, the thousand horses is just the deposit! He wants to make an attack on Dayu through Yuheng’s route for only a thousand horses? Don’t even dream of it! We are even thinking that the offer was too little, and you still want to make a counter-offer against us?”
His words caused the entire room to go silent. After a while, Gong Yimo said, “Yun’er, go out!”
Jin Yun was shocked at this moment and actually left obediently.
At right at this time, Jin Sheng finally realized that something was wrong. He stepped forward to pull open the curtains, but his vision suddenly grew dark, and he lost consciousness.
Jin Yun had just reached the door when he saw him fall down. He couldn’t react to what had happened for a while.
Borrowing their routes to Louye! Has Jin Sheng gone mad? How could he agree to a deal like this?!
If the other party suddenly goes back on their word at the last minute, then it would be no different from inviting a wolf into your room. The entirety of Yuheng will suffer!
He was still standing there, shocked, while Gong Yimo, on the other hand, was dragging Jin Sheng to the bed. He couldn’t help but ask in surprise, “Are you not worried at all?! Louye wants to attack Dayu!”
Gong Yimo reached into Jin Sheng’s clothes. Fortunately, Jin Sheng had come in alone. Otherwise, they might have alerted everyone.
When she heard what Jin Yun said, she rolled her eyes. “This isn’t the first day Louye’s king has been eyeing the Central Plains. What’s there to be surprised about?”
Her words made Jin Yun speechless and his hands were clenched into fists!
When he thought about how Yu Heng may end up being thrown into the fires of war just because of Jin Sheng, he gritted his teeth. “This deal must not go through! If it does, Yuheng will be in peril!”
Gong Yimo laughed. “Jin Sheng’s not that stupid. Aren’t there still 10,000 horses? That is a considerable amount of combat power. If Louye really wishes to go back on their word halfway through, Yuheng will still be able to hold on with the help of local advantages and the horses. Moreover, he could ask for Dayu’s help if Louye were ever to go back on their word. Ones’ teeth are exposed to the cold if the lips are lost. Dayu will definitely come. So, he is no fool, this deal is not a loss to him at all.”
Even if Louye succeeds in launching a sneak attack on Dayu, Yuheng will definitely switch sides to join Louye when Dayu is caught unprepared. At that time, with two countries attacking one, they will definitely obtain a lot of benefits when they succeed!
It was such a clever idea that it really did not seem like something Jin Sheng could think of.
Jin Yun also snorted. “This is like asking a tiger for its skin…He doesn’t even stop to think if he has the brains or the appetite for such a clever plan!”
Then, he finally realized that Gong Yimo was stripping the emperor’s clothes. He quickly went over. “What are you doing?”
Gong Yimo shot him a mischievous smile. “You’re right. I do not believe this is Jin Sheng’s plan either. Moreover, you do not want his plan to succeed, do you not? So I’m going to ruin it now.”
There was a faint glimmer in her eyes. “This is going to be fun. I wonder if the person behind these two would still be able to sit still when both Yuheng’s emperor and Louye’s duke is dishonored.”
