Today, Xiao Yu was enjoying hearing song in the camp, while playing chess with Caso, but suddenly a soldier quickly came in and after saluting: “Lord, there is a man named Nicholas outside asking permission to enter.”
“How come he came so late?” Xiao Yu was extremely dissatisfied. He waved his hand and said: “Call him in.”
Not long after, a familiar figure walked into Xiao Yu’s camp and saw Xiao Yu lying on the couch with a lazy face. He smiled and said, “I haven’t seen you for a long time, Xiao Yu.”
The person who came in was Nicholas.
Xiao Yu smiled and said: “Yeah, but in fact it hasn’t been that long. It’s just that you can’t forget my handsome face. But don’t worry; I will not blame you for it. After all I just have peerless face. ”
“Oh, you are still shameless as ever.” Nicholas looked at Xiao Yu and couldn’t help but mutter under breath. He went straight to Xiao Yu’s side and sat down. He began to smile and sipped his wine.
“Well, I heard that the church seems to be expanding. Don’t you plan to deter their advances?” Xiao Yu adjusted a comfortable posture and said faintly.
“Don’t worry, Pope is not a fool. He knows when to stop. Now people are mainly thinking about you. When do you plan to go to ruin?” Nicholas took off his shoes directly and also lied down on the couch in a comfortable posture.
“You are really greedy.” Xiao Yu said dissatisfied.
“I have always been greedy.” Nicholas said with a smile. He grabbed a grape and put it gently into his mouth with face full of smugness.
“Greedy people do not meet good end.” Xiao Yu cursed wickedly.
“People are greedy when they are alive. Because they are greedy, they have the motivation to live. Are you not greedy?” Nicholas did not care about the curse of Xiao Yu.
“Hey, am I greedy? If I say that my biggest goal is to guard my territory, to be a small emperor and to stay away from troubled water. Do you believe me or not?” Xiao Yu said.
Nicholas put a rare and serious face as he said: “I believe. But this world will not allow you to do so. This world is a world where you will be eaten by others if don’t eat others. So you must constantly make yourself stronger and then eat others and become the biggest fish.”
“But, even powerful fish can never jump out of the river of destiny. At most we will only cause few waves, but it is impossible to jump out of the rivers. It will never be possible to go ashore.” Xiao Yu was happy to express some of his own ideas.
“No one can go ashore, but as long as we swim in this river freely. We are happy, can’t we do it?” After being stunned, Nicholas suddenly said with a smile.
“Haha, you are right, as long as we swim happily and live happily, it will do.” Xiao Yu did not expect that Nicholas could see so thoroughly. This was his originally intension — To live happily.
“What is the new adventure you said about?” Nicholas took a sip of wine and began to talk about business.
“Actually, it is like this. I want to let you see how I got rid of this Weigong. In the future, this Principality is also mine. I think that all the benefits are mine alone. Therefore, I think I will give you some benefits too.” Xiao Yu pointed to the tall wall outside.
“Oh? When were you so kind? Want to give me benefits? You are an absolute stingy. Say it, what you want from me?” Nicholas asked directly.
“Cough… can’t you pretend that you don’t know? I don’t have to be so straight forward.” Xiao Yu said as he helplessly spread his hands.
“Well, I will give you face, say, how much benefit can I get?” Nicholas asked with slight smile.
“I recently got a chamber of commerce and planned to do business between Yunmeng and the inland. However, in some places, my influence is not great, so I need you to do ensure the safety of branches there. You can rest assured, since I asked for your help; I will definitely not let you suffer loss. It will give you some profits.” Xiao Yu also didn’t beat around the bush and directly got to business.
“Oh? This is a good thing. You have a good relationship with Yunmeng. You can get a lot of resources and political support there. This is a good deal, then you how much profits do you intend to give me?” what Xiao Yu said aroused Nicholas’s interest.
Both bargained for some time and finally settled at 30% profits. Nicholas would get 30% of Net profits and in return he had to ensure Chamber’s safety in Yunmeng.
“You are really a black-hearted profiteer. It’s no wonder that your family can grow this much. It was all done this way.” Xiao Yu did not forget threw curse at Nicholas.
“If we are doing business honestly, can we become a family that has been passed down for thousands of years? People who are not treacherous are weak people. In this world, you have to eat others and suck the blood of others to grow up. If not, other will try to suck your blood.” Nicholas leaned on the couch and looked very quiet.
“Now that matter of Chamber of Commerce is settled. Let’s talk about the church.” Xiao Yu looked at Nicholas’s eyes as he asked.
“What the church have to do with me? Anyway, they are not threatening me anymore.” Nicholas leaned back on the back of the chair.
“Hey, you can’t say that. Who knows what kind of things church has? If one day I fall, you might become his next target. The Pope’s ambitions are not small and as his strength grows he will become are and more ambitious. You can talk to Leonardo about it. He seems to be in close contact with the church now.” Xiao Yu also pulled Leonardo in.
