Gaza looked up at the road to the west of the city, but not seeing the figure that he wanted to see, he couldn’t help giving a sigh. He shook his head before lowering his head again.
He had already been waiting for five days.
A month and a half after he came back from the Stantine Duchy, he had always been raising his head waiting for the arrival of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu Yi.
According to the agreement, Xu Yi had promised to come to the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom in the middle of the month. He would come to investigate and hold business discussions for half a month to discuss their cooperation.
Gaza had been very excited back then.
If it was said that he only had a deep interest in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce before because of the information he had obtained after inquiring about them, after he had gone to the Stantine Duchy and saw the various facilities that were far more advanced than other countries, the respect he had for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had increased by several times.
He firmly believed that as long as they developed with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom could truly become a kingdom that could stand on their own. Only then would they be able to break free of the restrictions the surrounding countries had placed on them.
So he had strongly requested Xu Yi to take a trip to the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom back then.
But because Xu Yi was busy before, he had rejected this invitation. However, he did say that he would find time to take a trip.
And half a month ago, Gaza had received Xu Yi’s message from the Amrit Chamber of Commerce’s vice chairman Riley. He said that he would come in the middle of the month and after Gaza had heard this, he had been patiently waiting for Xu Yi at the town they were scheduled to meet two days ahead of time.
But it was now five days past the eleventh of July as agreed upon, but he still didn’t see Xu Yi or any other people who represented the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
This made Gaza very disappointed.
Could it be that chairman Xu went against his word?
Or could it be that they didn’t show enough sincerity which caused him to go against his word temporarily?
After thinking about it, Gaza didn’t think that this was the reason.
In order to show their sincerity in cooperating with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, Gaza had proposed to the Amrit Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom to build a shocking five thousand kilometers long road. It was impossible the Frestech Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t see their sincerity.
Of course, this also indicated the largest hindrance to their cooperation.
It was that it was too far.
The Nozdormu Business Uniun Kingdom was in the southeast of the Sines Continent and the Stantine Duchy was in the southwest.
There was over five thousand kilometers between the two kingdoms, not to mention that various obstacles that had to be traversed on land, it wouldn’t be strange if the total journey was over ten thousand kilometers.
Five thousand kilometers was a distance that was like the horizon for many people of the Sines Continent, not to mention over ten thousand kilometers.
The Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom being able to hear about the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was all because of their powerful intelligence network, while also being Gaza paying special attention to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
For most people in the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom and the Stantine Duchy, they hadn’t heard of the other country’s name before.
A cooperation between them was almost impossible because of the natural distance between them.
If it wasn’t for Gaza firmly believing that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce could change his Huayue Chamber of Commerce and the entire Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom, this matter would never have occurred.
“No matter what, I’ll wait another five days.” Gaza looked at the distant path and made his decision.
Since chairman Xu said that he would come this month, according to his understanding from his short period of contact with Xu Yi, he knew he would definitely do it.
And if he couldn’t even do this, as a merchant who always kept promises, even if Gaza wasn’t completely disappointed in Xu Yi, he would still have some doubt towards Xu Yi’s character.
When Gaza was thinking about how to treat Xu Yi after he came, he suddenly heard a loud sound from around him.
Gaza looked up again and found that downstairs of the restaurant he was in, everyone on the street was looking up at the sky.
“What is so strange?” Gaza also looked up at the sky and was stunned, “This…..Isn’t this the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s Magic Airship?”
Gaza recognized it with a single glance. The thing that was flying in the sky like a dark cloud was the Magic Airship he had seen when he had been in the Stantine Duchy.
Gaza at that time had been deeply shocked by this powerful magic machine that could be controlled in the skies.
This kind of amazing magic machine, it was like the airships that only the elves had of legends!
But there had only been five of those in the entire history of the elves. This Magic Airship according to Xu Yi could actually be mass produced!
If it wasn’t for Xu Yi saying that the development of the Magic Airship wasn’t complete yet, Gaza would have immediately made an order at that time.
According to what Xu Yi said, once the Magic Airship entered mass production, the price of each one wouldn’t be over ten thousand gold coins.
For most people of the Sines Continent, ten thousand gold coins was without a doubt a large number.
But for Gaza and the Huayue Chamber of Commerce, although this wasn’t a small number they could ignore, it was simply too cheap when it came to buying an amazing magic machine like the Magic Airship!
It had to be known, each airship that the elves had had cost at least thirty million gold coins!
Although the Magic Airship couldn’t compare to them, the difference in price was countless times more cost effective than the difference in performance.
Gaza looked at the Magic Airship that was like a dark cloud but created pressure in the air. When he saw it slowly land in an open space outside of the town, his heart was filled with excitement.
If the Huayue Chamber of Commerce could get a hundred…..No, they just needed ten of these Magic Airships, they would be confident in facing the other twelve companies of the kingdom.
Thinking of this, Gaza felt an excitement he hadn’t felt in a long time. He stood up and waved his hand before heading downstairs.
Behind him was a group of guards that were fully armed.
The Magic Airship had just landed outside when a similar group of fully armed guards surrounded them.
But these soldiers didn’t seem like they were sieging them. They stood in two lines and waited for the Magic Airship door to open. They held their heads high, but they looked like they were welcoming them.
When Xu Yi walked out of the Magic Airship and saw the formation outside, he couldn’t help being a bit surprised.
Although he had heard that the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom was a kingdom with a rather strange political system, being controlled by thirteen companies together, he was a bit surprised that the Huayue Chamber of Commerce could actually send out this many troops.
But seeing Gaza walking over from the distance, Xu Yi’s surprised look changed into a smile and he went to greet him.
“Chairman Xu, you really made me wait a long time.” Gaza gave a laugh, speaking in a loud voice that came from the heart.
Xu Yi revealed a faint smile and took a few steps forward to shake Gaza’s hand.
“There was a bit of an accident midway, so we lost some time.”
“Accident?” Gaza’s brows jumped up.
“It’s nothing, just a small accident.” Xu Yi shook his head with a smile, not planning on explaining to Gaza.
Actually there wasn’t any accident at all, it was just that Xu Yi was late by several days because he had been improving Akali’s new discovery. He had flown around the Sines Continent and had Akali drop small Magic Resonance Sensors from time to time.
Going and stopping like this naturally wasted quite a bit of time.
Gaza naturally wouldn’t keep asking. He welcomed Xu Yi on behalf of the Huayue Chamber of Commerce and the Nozdormu Business Union before inviting Xu Yi and the group of people from the Magic Airship into the town for lunch.
At this meeting, Gaza talked with Xu Yi while introducing the arrangements he had made for Xu Yi over the next few days.
Xu Yi patiently listened at first, but then hearing that Gaza had arranged a meeting between him and the other twelve companies, he suddenly cut him off.
“Chairman Gaza, my trip to the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom this time is just for preliminary inspections. As for cooperation, I still need to see what the situation is like first, so I hope that you can put this business discussion at the end. What do you think?”
Gaza slightly knit his brows. He knew that Xu Yi wanted to inspect first before making his decision.
This meant that if the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom’s situation couldn’t satisfy him, he would very likely turn around and leave without even considering cooperating with them.
After thinking about it, Gaza gave a nod with a smile, “Alright, I believe that chairman Xu will certainly be satisfied with the investment situation of our Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom.”
Xu Yi looked at him with a smile of deep meaning before slowly shaking his head.
“Chairman Gaza, I beg to differ.”
Gaza was stunned and he was a bit unhappy.
“Chairman Xu, may I ask if there is something you’re not satisfied with?”
This chairman Xu had clearly just arrived and he actually wasn’t satisfied with the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom, he really was a rather picky person.
However, Xu Yi’s answer stunned Gaza, making him unable to say a thing in response.
