Chapter 1361 - Lady Providence, Who Loves Wealth Like Life Itself

Xuan Ji watched Ye Zichen rub his hands together . She smiled, but shook her head and refused .

His plan was quite good, and did in fact sound interesting, exciting even . If she were an ordinary, unknown person and not the subject of hundreds of millions of gods’ attention, she might have really agreed .

Ye Zichen’s plan really was tempting .

But she was Xuan Ji, the pavilion master of Heavenly God City’s Profound Pavilion . She was Lady Providence, the subordinate of the God Emperor, Zhou Wu . Everything she did and said was under the scrutiny of the masses . She had to consider her impact on other people .

His plan, put nicely, was an underdog’s effort to replace his superiors: fun and exciting . But put differently, it was a bit insane .

Interest wasn’t enough to convince her to participate . She needed sufficient courage .

Xuan Ji was no coward, and had never lacked for courage, but hers wasn’t the only life on the line . She had to consider her subordinates, too .

“What a pity,” said Ye Zichen . He sighed as if he felt bad for her and shrugged . “You’ve just passed up an opportunity to change history . ”

“It really is a pity,” said Xuan Ji, but she remained unmoved .

In truth, Ye Zichen had never seriously considered getting Xuan Ji involved in his scheme . He knew better than anyone just how insane his plan was .

As the pavilion master of the Profound Pavilion, everything Xuan Ji drew the masses’ attention .

If she actually joined him, it might very well stir up panic amongst the gods and alert his targets .

Even though he knew all that, he still thought it would be nice if she joined up .

If Xuan Ji got involved, that meant both she and her entire Profound Pavilion would stand behind him, including their various subordinate powers . This would strengthen his forces to an enormous degree . Furthermore, with the Profound Pavilion’s backing . This would make him and his plan seem far more legitimate, too .

In any event .

If she wanted to join up with him, he’d welcome her with open arms . If she didn’t, it wouldn’t actually have too much of an impact on his plans .

Besides, his true purpose in coming here wasn’t convincing Xuan Ji to begin with .

But… .

“Surely you can help me with one small favor though, right?” Ye Zichen smiled .

This “favor” was his true reason for seeking out Xuan Ji . It was the precondition for the rest of his plans to work . If he had to act on his own, he could use his status as an emissary of the Outside and ask Zhou Wu for help . Ye Zichen was sure that, given the Upper Three Realm’s current tense, ambiguous state, the God Emperor wouldn’t refuse .

But after that, the God Emperor was sure to watch and consider Ye Zichen’s every move carefully .

That’s why he didn’t want to use the God Emperor as a shortcut to get his plans into motion . Xuan Ji was the top expert in Heavenly God City save for the God Emperor himself, and she was his top subordinate . He was sure that she could achieve the same effect, and that given their relationship, she wouldn’t expose his plans .

Xuan Ji froze somewhat . She naturally understood what favor Ye Zichen was referring to .

“Have you really thought this through?” She didn’t agree directly . Instead, she looked at him solemnly . She was worried that he’d let his excitement get to his head and that he was acting on the spur of the moment .

“Naturally . ” Ye Zichen nodded and smiled assuredly . “I’m sure you already know I have the Yao-Sealing Pagoda in my possession . Although my faction can be considered a newcomer amongst the countless powers of the God Race, in terms of comprehensive fighting strength, we’re no weaker than other, established family clans . The yao servants of the Pagoda are no different from the descendants of ancient clans, either; there is absolutely no way they’ll betray me . We’re inferior to established clans only in terms of history and acc . u . mulated insider information . ”

“Of course . Owning the Yao-Sealing Pagoda naturally makes you the head of a faction . But you ought to know just who you’re up against . Relying purely on the yao servants of the pagoda… . ”

“Don’t I have you, too?” Ye Zichen laughed .

“Don’t interrupt,” she said seriously . “You already know that I can’t possibly support you openly . Not even your mom can do that, as your plan will influence the higher-ups of the God Realm . All I can do is try my utmost to stop other factions from suppressing you . No more, no less . ”

Ye Zichen was keenly aware that she meant every word . Furthermore, he knew she was asking out of concern for him . He smiled, then glanced at Pu Jingwan . “Isn’t she… enough?”

“Her?” Xuan Ji examined Pu Jingwan without reservation . Pu Jingwan was staring at the two of them, her eyes wide . She hadn’t understood a word of their conversation, but now, suddenly, they were talking about her . She was a bit stunned . “Is she from the first era?”

Ye Zichen nodded . Xuan Ji looked Pu Jingwan up and down and said, “Her cultivation is enough, but she’s just one person . She’s not enough to support your plan!”

“What if I add the same special emissary from the tournament?”

“Both of them?” Xuan Ji contemplated the matter for a while, but decided the two of them still weren’t enough to make Ye Zichen’s plan work . After a lengthy silence, she shook her head . “The two of them would be enough to intimidate any given region, but you want to establish a major power . You’re still lacking in top experts . ”

“I have twenty other rulers too,” laughed Ye Zichen .

“What on earth is going on with the First Era? They really sent you over twenty rulers?” Xuan Ji was stunned, but this time, she didn’t shake her head .

With Yang Jian and Pu Jingwan, Ye Zichen had enough top experts . Now he just needed ordinary rulers .

He didn’t need so many, either . Five or six would have been enough . But now Ye Zichen said he had twenty? Add that to his yao servants, and if he formed a faction, it’d be on par with the Divine Mountains’ Holy Lands .

It was just as Ye Zichen said . He didn’t lack manpower . He merely lacked history and insider information .

Now that he’d laid his cards out in the open, Xuan Ji was no longer worried about it . Assuming Ye Zichen wasn’t just bragging and that he really meant what he said, his ranks were enough to support the later stages of his plan . As for her, although she couldn’t participate directly in this exciting endeavor, she could at least lend a hand .

“Alright, leave it all up to me . I’ll prepare what you need as soon as possible . But… . how are you going to pay me for it?” asked Xuan Ji .

To complete the favor Ye Zichen needed, she’d need a veritable ocean of resources . As his aunt, she could give him the odd trifle or two, but money didn’t grow on trees . Besides, as everyone in the God Realm knew, Xuan Ji loved money as much as life itself .

“Please pay for everything on your own for now,” said Ye Zichen . “Then, before long, the Outsiders will come with the rest of the resources . I’ll pay you back then, alright?”

“How long?”

“Half a month at most!”

Xuan Ji took in Ye Zichen’s certainty, but she still didn’t quite believe it . She fell into silent contemplation, then said, “I can do that, but you have to pay me back with interest . ”

“How much?” asked Ye Zichen .

“I want a double return on my investments!” Before Ye Zichen could object, she continued, “Don’t rush to refuse me . If you don’t agree, you can find someone else to help you; it won’t hurt me in the slightest . Don’t even consider using the Outside’s Pills of Fortune to threaten me, either . I can just consider them repaying all the profits I got from my friendship with your mother over the years . Losing them doesn’t hurt at all . ”

“No way, you still want me to reimburse you for those pills before you agree to help?” said Ye Zichen .

“I spent those Pills of Fortune helping you out… Don’t you . . . want to reimburse me?” Xuan Ji furrowed her brows . ”

Ye Zichen leaned into his chair and let out a deep sigh . He had to put his plan into action as soon as possible . The longer he dragged things out, the more passive a position he’d find himself in .

He took in his dear auntie’s unwillingness to make even the slightest concession, then steeled himself and said in a low voice, “Deal!”
