Chapter 471: Young miss
This was not a small matter.
No matter how strong Miracle Commerce was, the little sister sect master couldn’t make her decision on the spot, she still needed time to consider it. Even if she had already decided to agree to Chu Tian’s conditions, she still had to think of a way to maximize benefits for herself and the Black Moon Sect.
“The so called seeing is better than hearing. How about living in Miracle City for a few days and walk around the city and the area. I’ll find someone to play with you.” Chu Tian looked over everyone and saw Vivian almost leaping up. She was wasting away in the City Lord’s Fort, so this kind of job was perfect for her, “Vivian, you’ll go play with the sect master, it’s more convenient with your spatial abilities. We’ll pay for you to have fun, so play as much as you can!”
“Yes!” It was hard for Vivian to hide her happy expression, immediately standing and responding to Chu Tian. She impatiently turned to Yin Spirit and said, “Little sect master, let’s go!”
Yin Spirit said in a dissatisfied voice, “Why did you add in little?”
“Ha, ha, ha, if my age is counted in human years, I would already be around seventy years old. I’m old enough to be your grandmother, can I not call you this?” Vivian used her own age to suppress her and Yin Spirit was speechless, “Let’s go!”
Vivian used her spiritual energy and the two of them disappeared.
“Elder sister, big sister Nangong and I want to see the trial field.”
Nangong and Yingying happily left. Yingying had always paid attention to the trial field, this trial field would become an amusement park in the future. For these two who loved to play, naturally they would be very excited.
“Young miss, let’s also go!” Chu Tian’s pupils turned white as he released spatial energy like a storm, instantly whisking Meng Qingwu and himself away. When Meng Qingwu came back to her senses, she was already back in the City Lord’s Fort.
Meng Qingwu’s eyes flashed with a trace of surprise, “Your spatial abilities are not weaker than Vivian’s!”
Chu Tian sat down in the City Lord’s throne and crossed his legs. He said with a proud face, “Isn’t that nonsense? How could the abilities that I have be weak!”
“”What new results are there to report?”
“The Great Summer research laboratory is progressing smoothly, the automatic array machine has been made.”
Meng Qingwu poured a cup of elven green tea for Chu Tian. She already had a tacit understanding with Chu Tian, even if Chu Tian didn’t say anything, she knew what Chu Tian wanted, therefore she already prepared this before Chu Tian even came back. There was a mirror on the side of the conference room that was turned on and Miracle Commerce’s Central State factory appeared.
There were several researchers that first took out a crystal plate with a talisman design on it. When they placed the transparent talisman design into the machine and added a source stone, the machine began to move. The source energy was extracted from the source stone which was poured into a crystal pen that began to draw.
A complete talisman was made in less than two minutes.
The test on the talisman proved that it could be used and that there were no flaws on it at all. This meant that Miracle Commerce had entered the industrial age. From now on, it wouldn’t take them as much time and effort to make the Source Energy Matrix Computers.
With several hundred automatic array machines engraving talismans, as long as there was a mold, it could be done over and over again. These machines would far surpass the speed of a human in the future.
Countless Yun Sect scholars would be freed from this tedious task.
Miracle Commerce’s speed and output in manufacturing various products would explode and there was no need to worry about exposing their business secrets! Those scholars who were freed had more time to spend on improving the source energy matrices, this was a matter as large as the heavens themselves!
“There’s another important matter to report.” Meng Qingwu turned on another image transfer mirror and the image changed, “Look!”
The image displayed in the image transfer mirror was actually the valley from the battle with the Lich. There were several gray towers and there was one that was fixed, currently releasing death energy. There were several hundred skeletons around it that were currently transporting trash, wood, and stones, all working hard.
Isn’t this the Lich’s Undead Tower?
When did the young miss make this!
“Zero has the complete knowledge and memories of the Lich, those are all valuable, so how could we waste it?” Meng Qingwu revealed a faint smile, “The death energy in the undead ruins almost destroyed Miracle City. Although I wasn’t in Miracle City at the time, I was shocked when I heard this and was sure the power wasn’t weak. If the Lich could control this energy, why can’t we?”
“These skeletons are maintained by the energy from the Undead Tower and they move as fast as wind, they are natural labourers.” When Meng Qingwu spoke of the skeleton soldiers, she was very enthusiastic, “They can bear any kind of hard work. I think there wouldn’t be a single merchant that would reject this kind of labourer. If we have tens of thousands of these skeleton soldiers, there will be no lack of people for hard labour and dangerous work like exploring mines, even most of the factory work can be substituted with these skeletons.”
Undead labour and a cheap economy, how could the young miss as a merchant not recognize these good things?
“Powerful, powerful, the young miss truly is Miracle City’s backbone.” Chu Tian gave the young miss the highest praise and acknowledgement, “The Undead Tower is not just used to control undead. Have Zero prepare the blueprint, I want to study it.”
The energy in the undead ruins surpassed Chu Tian’s imagination.
Because it wasn’t far from Miracle City, it would have many uses in the future.
Meng Qingwu took a sip of green tea and there were a few seconds of silence before she put down the cup, “I work hard all day behind the curtains for you, are there still things you plan on hiding from me?”
Chu Tian was stunned by these sudden words.
“What does that mean?”
The young miss’ eyes looked right at him and when she locked gazes with Chu Tian, there was a strange flutter in her heart.
“You know in your heart!” Meng Qingwu slanted her eyes at him. Those eyes that were bright as mirrors, normally being filled with gentleness and intelligence currently had a trace of hidden bitterness. The young mis usually displayed the image of a strong woman in Miracle Commerce and not a single person didn’t submit to her. For her to display this kind of aggrieved look like a pregnant girl who had been abandoned, Chu Tian began to shiver.
Chu Tian shook his head, “I still don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Meng Qingwu saw that Chu Tian was still playing dumb and she couldn’t take it anymore, so she slapped the table, “The matter between you and Yingying!”
“Ah, how do you know?” Chu Tian was very surprised. When he was worrying about how to mention this matter to the young miss, he remembered Yingying’s words on the prairies. Of course he knew the young miss’ feelings, so how could he mention this matter to her? Who would have thought that the young miss would already know, “Could it be Yingying told you on the communication device?”
“Although she didn’t tell me, you think you can hide this matter from me with my relationship with Yingying?” The young miss snappily said, “I am Yingying’s blood related sister, not to mention nothing being hidden between us, I’ve watch Yingying grow up so I can be considered half a parent. If anything changes with her, others might not be able to see it, but how could I not see it?”
Chu Tian felt a bit awkward, “Yes, yes, the young miss is truly wise!”
“You two were planning to hide this from me!” When the young miss said this, she revealed an aggrieved look, “Truly too hateful!”
Chu Tian knew he was wrong, so he said, “We were preparing to tell everyone the matter when it was the right time, but who would have thought the young miss would notice beforehand. I ask the young miss for forgiveness, this wasn’t intentional!”
“Humph, stop pretending, you think I don’t know you?” Meng Qingwu placed her hands on the table and the prestige of the female city lord and chairman exploded, “I’m telling you, since you’ve started going out, you have to treat her well. If Yingying suffers even a little bit, I will not let you go!”
Yingying was too pure, she didn’t worry about anything. The entire Miracle Commerce knew that she liked Chu Tian and Chu Tian had always taken care of Yingying, so it was natural for them to reach this step, there was nothing to say.
Meng Qingwu saw her little sister’s happiness as the elder sister, so what else could she say?
Chu Tian stared at Meng Qingwu with a strange gaze for a while, “What are you looking at?”
“Why are you giving me Yingying so easily?”
“Can I avoid it?”
Chu Tian muttered in his heart. Yingying said the young miss also liked him, but the young miss looked very relaxed right now. Why didn’t she seem jealous at all?
“Then I can be assured. I was worried that Miracle Commerce would go through a play of ‘sisters fighting over a man and turning into bitter enemies’!”
“Pei, you don’t know how to talk.” Meng Qingwu’s face became a bit red, “You’re not a bit disappointed?”
Chu Tian gave a sigh, “A bit, a bit.”
“What are you doing?”
Meng Qingwu reached her hands around Chu Tian’s neck and rested her head softly against his shoulder. With the young miss’ solemn disposition, she actually did something like this which Chu Tian found unbelievable, “Hey, young miss, we’re in broad daylight, it’s not good if we do this. Since you can’t bear it, we should find a place with no one around. There are people watching here.”
The little fox covered its eyes, signaling that it saw nothing and they should continue.
“Don’t speak nonsense.” Meng Qingwu closed her eyes and softly said, “I’m just a bit tired and resting against your shoulder! I’ve helped you do this much work, you wouldn’t be that stingy, right?”
Chu Tian didn’t know what to do for a while, he could only correct the young miss, “You are Miracle Commerce’s second largest shareholder and Miracle City’s second city lord, how could it be considered working?”
Meng Qingwu acted like she didn’t hear it and said in a sleep talking voice, “Remember when the Southern Summer border fort broke and we had to escape for our lives?”
“I won’t forget for an entire life, it’s rare for a person in me to be in such distress.”
“We fell in the water together, you were heavily injured and I couldn’t move, we were about to die at the mouths of the beasts. You could clearly escape by yourself, so why did you disregard your life to send me to shore? You had tried your best and even if you let me go, there would be nothing wrong. You have to know that a thousand Meng Qingwus cannot compare to a single Chu Tian.”
“This is not doing business in the market, you can’t compare the values. This is a matter of a man’s principles, there is no why.”
“I knew it, there are times you’re truly an idiot!” Meng Qingwu revealed a faint smile. Her voice was very calm, just like she was discussing family matters with a good friend, “Do you know, from that moment on, there was another most important person in my life other than Yingying.”
Chu Tian said in a surprised voice, “Young miss, can I take that as your confession to me?”
“You can take it as such if you like it!” Meng Qingwu released her hands and revealed a vacant gaze, “You and Yingying are the people I care about the most. I’m very happy the two people I care about the most are happy. But at the same time I feel very helpless, like I’ve lost two people all of a sudden. What do you think I should do?”
“This is a very good question, it’s very philosophical and challenging.” Chu Tian tentatively said, “Then I’ll just suffer a bit and marry both you sisters this time.”
“In your dreams, in your fantasies!” Meng Qingwu completely returned to normal, glaring at Chu Tian, “Take care of Yingying properly from now on, we’ll talk about our matters slowly in the future. Anyway, you owe me quite a bit!”
Meng Qingwu’s blocked heart suddenly felt much more relaxed and she continued to work.
The young miss was truly a very contradictory person!
