“This is the important matter you mentioned?” Xu Yi looked at Kennard, finding this a bit funny.
Seeing Xu Yi’s relaxed look, Kennard was surprised.
“Sir chairman, could it be that this isn’t an important matter? Count Andre already exposed everything, those people are from the Candra Empire, they are the subordinate of the southern province’s governor. Now that six hundred of them have died here, do you think that the Lord Governor would let this go so easily?”
Xu Yi asked with a smile, “Then what do you think we should do?”
Kennard had clearly already considered this and he replied without any hesitation, “This matter can’t be concealed, so in my opinion, we should capture the three hundred soldiers of Baron Prado under the name of the Stantine Duchy congress and then hand them over to Duke Windsor.”
“Un…..in terms of objectives, Kennard, your idea is quite good.” Xu Yi nodded before changing his words, “But…..Kennard, have you thought of a problem? Do you know why Duke Windsor would suddenly send his subordinates to our Stantine Duchy? Moreover, he would do it this secretly?”
“This…..Not a single one of Duke Windsor’s subordinates said a thing, so I’m not too clear.” Kennard hesitantly said.
Xu Yi laughed as he patted Kennard’s shoulder, “You, you should focus on managing the company, you don’t have to care about other things. Where’s Count Andre and Duke Windsor’s subordinates? Bring me to them.”
Kennard knitted his brows to look at Xu Yi. Based on Xu yi’s words, he could hear a different meaning.
Could it be….that sir chairman was already prepared for this, so he was this calm?
Kennard was doubtful as he brought Xu Yi to a hospital on the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base.
When Duke Windsor’s subordinates fought with Baron Prado’s subordinates, Baron Prado had thirteen people injured. As for Duke Windsor, six hundred people died and the remaining two thousand were injured to various degrees. If it wasn’t for them being promptly rescued, the casualties wouldn’t just be six hundred.
Now they were sent to this hospital, so even this large hospital was filled and they were even put on the floor outside.
It was a good thing that it was early fall and the weather was still warm, so they were fine being outside.
Xu Yi and Kennard arrived at this hospital which was surrounded by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards, stopping anyone from entering.
Although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base was impacted by this, they had no other choice in this matter.
After coming into the hospital, they heard the sounds of arguing coming from inside.
“Quickly call out your chairman! Otherwise, we will smash this place to pieces!”
“You still aren’t letting us go! You actually dare to lock us up, do you know who we are?”
Xu Yi suddenly waved his hand and a small fireball flew out, hitting a fellow who was currently cursing in the hospital.
Although this person was in full armour, it didn’t have much defenses against magic. After being hit by the fireball, there was an explosion as he was sent flying, landing on the grass without making another sound.
All the noise instantly disappeared and everyone turned their gazes to Xu Yi.
But Xu Yi didn’t look at them as he turned to Kennard, “Since you’ve caught them, why didn’t you take their equipment? You’re even adding to the danger?”
Kennard was stunned, “Sir chairman, this…..They…..They are from the Candra Empire…..”
Xu Yi shook his head and ignored Kennard, turning to wave at the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guard leader in charge.
After he came over, Xu Yi pointed at Duke Windsor’s subordinates in the yard, “Take all their equipment. Letting these fellows still keep their weapons in such an important place to our Frestech Chamber of Commerce, have your heads been kicked in?”
The leader was surprised at being scolded by Xu Yi. He turned to Kennard and seeing that he didn’t say a thing, he gave a nod before quickly telling the guards to confiscate the equipment from Duke Windsor’s soldiers.
Although these people wanted to resist, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards had powerful other races. Not to mention if they had the same equipment, even if they were at the same level, they weren’t a match for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards. Not to mention that most of them were injured, so they could only helplessly accept their weapons being taken away.
Kennard silently watched this with a bit of thought in his eyes.
Seeing the situation calm down, Xu Yi went into the hospital with Kennard.
Xu Yi didn’t go see Count Andre at all, he went to the room that had been prepared for Chalon.
Three days had passed since Chalon had fought with Baron Prado, so Chalon had already woken up.
When Xu Yi and Kennard came in, Chalon was sitting up in bed looking out the window. It was unknown what he was thinking.
Hearing people come in, Chalon turned. He first saw Kennard before his eyes fell onto Xu Yi, slightly narrowing them before relaxing them again and revealing a smile.
“If my guesses are correct, you are the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu Yi?”
Xu Yi was a bit surprised, “You recognize me?”
“No, it was a guess.” Chalon shook his head.
Chalon pointed at Kennard behind Xu Yi, “Other than the chairman, I believe that no one can make Kennard as the CEO stand behind him, right?”
Xu Yi turned back to look at Kennard and couldn’t help smiling.
“Alright, it seems like you’re an intelligent person, I don’t need to waste words like this.” Xu Yi pulled a chair up to the bed to sit down and waved his hand to have the others leave, leaving only Kennard with him, “There’s no problem if I call you Baron Chalon, right?”
Chalon revealed a smile, “Just call me Chalon. I’ve already been defeated, what meaning is there in calling me Baron Chalon?”
“Defeated? The ones who defeated you are Baron Prado’s subordinates, it’s not related to our Frestech Chamber of Commerce.” Xu Yi immediately denied it.
Chalon looked at Xu Yi with a look of deep meaning, “Chairman Xu, the military magic machines that Baron Prado’s subordinates used, do you dare say that it isn’t related to your Frestech Chamber of Commerce?”
Xu Yi smiled without saying a thing.
Chalon suddenly gave a long sigh, “Chairman Xu, actually before coming to the Stantine Duchy, although I had investigated the Frestech Chamber of Commerce quite a bit, I still looked down on you very much. But I never expected that…..as soon as I came to the Stantine Duchy, I would be hit in the head.”
After saying this, Chalon took another deep breath as his expression became serious and he asked Xu Yi, “Chairman Xu, please tell me, the military magic machines that Baron Prado’s subordinates used before, were they the complete military magic machines that your Frestech Chamber of Commerce produces?”
Xu Yi once again smiled without saying a thing.
Chalon immediately understood what Xu Yi meant and continued with a nod, “It seems like it’s like this. Alright, chairman Xu, I think that I understand, so you can tell me your purpose in coming here.”
Xu Yi couldn’t help smiling.
This Chalon really was a smart person as he had expected.
This was very good, it saved him quite a bit of effort.
Moreover, this Chalon was quite good, he might be able to change his plan.
“Eh…..Baron Chalon, this time I came here to announce one thing to you.” Xu Yi finally said.
“What is it?”
Xu Yi took out an official document which he handed to Chalon.
“In light of the fact that you brought three thousand fully armed soldiers into our Stantine Duchy without permission, the congress has declared that you are an unlawful invader. According to the laws of the duchy, you and your subordinates will all be locked in jail and await your trials.”
“Is that so?” Chalon’s expression was calm. He didn’t look at the official document at all as he looked at Xu Yi and asked, “Chairman Xu, do you really plan on doing this?”
“It isn’t me doing this, you broke our duchy’s laws, so it’s the congress’ decision.” Xu Yi explained with a smile.
Chalon gave a soft snort, “Chairman Xu, you said that you didn’t want to waste words, but I think that you are completely wasting words. Deciding our destiny is not up to your damn Stantine Duchy, it should be you and the Lord Duke, I think you’re very clear on that.”
“Right, I’m very clear on it. So I’ve decided to lock you up first and see how the Lord Duke reacts.”
Xu Yi replied with a smile before standing up.
Seeing that Xu Yi was prepared to leave, Chalon became worried and raised his voice to say, “Chairman Xu, we’re all intelligent people, I know what you want to do. Now that I’ve seen the situation, I feel that there is a chance to cooperate between us. As long as you let me go, I’ll definitely convince the Lord Duke to let go of the past!”
“Let go of the past?” Xu Yi revealed a faint smile, “I naturally want to cooperate, but that depends on how important you are to the Lord Duke, right?”
Chalon was at a loss for words as his expression filled with hesitation.
Although he believed that he was the most trusted subordinate of the Lord Duke, he couldn’t confirm that the Lord Duke would still trust him after he had brought three thousand elites to the Stantine Duchy, then after not completing his mission, he had gotten them all captured.
Seeing his appearance, Xu Yi shook his head. He waved his hand to Kennard and left the room together.
