Magic Industry Empire - Volume 7 Chapter 49




Once Seveni left, elder Illusia, elder Lisanya, and elder Undine arrived at the Stantine Duchy together.

The day after Cassandra had appeared, Arch Magus Camilla had already told the three elven elders about this dragon because of the legend of the Abyss Demon Race.

The three elders had already been here twenty days ago and had a long conversation with Cassandra.

From Cassandra, the three elders learned that the legend of the Abyss Demon Race was real, but they also learned that the Abyss Demon Race wasn’t as terrifying as the legends. They wouldn’t arrive in this world to bring the end of the world and destroy the entire world……

Although this was only information from Cassandra alone, since she was a legendary dragon that was at the same level as the Abyss Demon Race, it seemed credible when she said this.

So after talking to Cassandra, whether it was Arch Magus Camilla or the three elven elders, they all let out a sigh of relief.

But the three elders couldn’t completely relax, so they hoped that they could send people to the Fire Rock Island where the dragons lived with Cassandra, so they could ask the other dragons and the other races of the Magic Cloud Continent about the Abyss Demon Race.

They came back again to bring the people that they had selected with them.

According to the agreement, the three elf tribes would choose twenty elves each to go with the fleet this time.

Other than meeting the dragon race and the other races, they would also reinforce the elves that were sent on the first open sea exploration fleet.

But when Xu Yi met these three elders, he found that there were over fifty elves behind each elder.

Xu Yi looked at elder Illusia with a surprised look, “Elder Illusia, the Moon Shadow Tribe and the Azshara Tribe have bigger populations, so it’s fine if they send more people. Why are you sending this many people? Isn’t your tribe short on manpower?”

Elder Illusia revealed a faint smile, “The secret of the Abyss Demon Race is an important matter, it’s reasonable even if we sent everyone from our tribe.”

Xu Yi looked at elder Lisanya and elder Undine who had serious looks before turning back to elder Illusia. He couldn’t help shaking his head.

“I say, elder Illusia, I acknowledge that you’ve learned how to hide yourself in human society, but to hide yourself in front of me…..you’re still too early.”

Elder Illusia blinked before asking, “Is my acting really that bad?”

“It’s just that bad.” Xu Yi nodded with a serious look. He looked at elder Lisanya and elder Undine before asking in a deep voice, “Alright, just tell me what you want to do. We’ve been friends for many years, what is there that can’t be said?”

The three elders looked at each other and after hesitating a bit, elder Lisanya said with a smile, “Alright, we won’t hide it then. Chairman Xu, I heard that your Frestech Chamber of Commerce is planning on developing this new continent?”

“Un, we do have this plan. What? You’re interested?”

“We are very interested.” Elder Undine took over as she had a serious look on her face, “Chairman Xu, as you can see, the Sines Continent is completely controlled by you humans and there isn’t much space to develop for us elves. Now that there’s a whole new continent, I feel that this is a very good chance for all of us elves.”

“This means…..that you want to get some territory that belongs to you elves on the Magic Cloud Continent?” Xu Yi knitted his brows to ask, “Three elders, it isn’t that I’m looking down on you, but with your current power…..do you really think that you can do this? It isn’t like the Magic Cloud Continent doesn’t have any living beings, perhaps there are more powerful races than us humans there?”

“So don’t we need to explore it first?” Elder Lisanya replied, “Now that we’ve had this idea, as for how to implement it, naturally it would depend on the circumstances. Of course, the most important thing in my opinion is the support of chairman Xu and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.”

Xu Yi looked at the three elders and he could see that they weren’t joking at all.

It had already been fifteen years since he met the Night Song Tribe led by elder Illusia.

In these fifteen years, Xu Yi had always been close to the elves and even married Agnes and Tvisti. It could be said that his relationship with the elves was quite close.

He knew better than anyone the desire that the elves had for living space.

Just like elder Undine had said, the Sines Continent was already controlled by the humans, so there were few places to live for the elves.

So now that there was a brand new continent in front of them, it was like a delicious piece of meat that was placed in front of people that had been starving for several days. It was very enticing and they couldn’t resist it at all.

Xu Yi thought about it for a bit before giving a sigh.

“Alright, three elders, I understand what you are thinking. However, before this, I have to remind you that after several years of development, your three tribes have already set up a decent foundation in our human society. So even if you want to go to the new continent to find a bigger living space, I feel that you shouldn’t give up the foundation that you’ve worked so hard to build here.”

“Who said that we’re giving it up?” Elder Lisanya looked at Xu Yi with wide eyes, “We’re earning several million or even up to ten million gold coins a year now, it would be a pity to give all that up. We are also counting on buying military magic machines from your Frestech Chamber of Commerce with that money, so we can prepare to enter the new continent in the future.”

“Right.” Elder Illusia nodded with a faint smile, “Chairman Xu, if our exploration of the Magic Cloud Continent goes smoothly, it is very likely we’ll need your support in terms of military magic machines. I hope that you will support us when the time comes.”

“Well…..It’s too early to say anything, so let’s wait and see what the situation of the Magic Cloud Continent is first.” Xu Yi said.

“Un, that’s right.”

The three elders naturally understood that this would take a long time and there were many things to prepare. It would be impossible to decide everything now.

So the three elders left the hundred and fifty elves they’ve brought to Xu Yi, to let him sort out their places on the reinforcement fleet that would be leaving in a few days before heading off to meet Cassandra again.

As the oldest intelligent race on the Sines Continent, although they were still much younger than Cassandra, because they received many inheritances from the elf race, they knew more about the ancient legends of the continent better than normal people. There were quite a few things that they could confirm from Cassandra.

However, when Xu Yi brought them to the valley that Cassandra hid in all day, there wasn’t a sign of this giant dragon.

“Did that fellow run off somewhere to play again?”

Xu Yi felt a bit of a headache.

Cassandra was very important to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce right now, whether it was leading the reinforcement fleet or the new continent, she was very important.

However, she was a legendary dragon and they couldn’t prevent her from running around like she was a prisoner.

But she was very curious about the novel things in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base, so she would run around when she wasn’t watching illusion films.

It was a good thing that she had remembered Xu Yi’s order and always changed into human form when she went out to play.

Otherwise, she would have already caused a big mess.

Looking around, after confirming that Cassandra wasn’t playing nearby, Xu Yi reached into his chest for a Magic Communicator.

“Hey, Hart, where did Cassandra go?”

Because it was impossible to treat Cassandra like a prisoner and it was impossible to let her run around, Xu Yi had the guard leader Hart personally lead a team to follow Cassandra around.

Other than letting them meet Cassandra’s request and to prevent her from causing any trouble, it also allowed him to know her location.

After a while, there was a clear voice from the Magic Communicator. It wasn’t the anticipated voice of Hart, but rather Akali’s familiar voice.

“Sir chairman! We succeeded! We succeeded!”

Xu Yi was surprised, “What did you succeed with? Is it your recent project? Let me think…..is it the magic signal cross transmission?”

“Un! Oh, no……it isn’t this……but it can be considered this……” Akali said in words that Xu Yi couldn’t understand. She seemed so excited that she couldn’t organize her words.

Xu Yi was confused while also feeling a bit of excitement.

Akali’s current project was related to the magic communication network. If they could obtain a major breakthrough, they would be one step closer to creating a magic communication network that could cover the entire world.

If they could have this perfect communication network, Xu Yi wouldn’t need this dragon Cassandra to bring him news, but rather he could contact the open sea exploration fleet that was ten thousand kilometers away. There was no doubt that this would be much more convenient.

Thinking of this, Xu Yi finally reacted. He didn’t call this time to ask about Akali’s research progress even though it was important, he called to find out Cassandra’s location.

“Wait, Akali, why did you pick up? Where’s Hart? Also where’s Cassandra?”

“Leader Hart is with me and as for Cassandra……” On the other side, Akali seemed to be quickly talking to someone on the other side before saying, “Sir chairman, we really have to thank miss Cassandra for the breakthrough this time!”

Xu Yi was surprised.

How was Cassandra related to Akali’s research?
