Magic Industry Empire - Volume 8 Chapter 96




Xu Yi had returned to the Sines Continent after six years, every one of his actions received the attention of countless people.

People believed that his return to the Sines Continent this time definitely wasn’t just to see Heinz one last time, he definitely had other plans.

Facts were as everyone had expected.

After going to Heinz’s funeral, Xu Yi appeared in the two empires, the Rudson Kingdom, the Mana Magic Kingdom, the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom, and the other important countries, meeting with the leaders of these countries.

No one knew what the meetings were about, but after this, those countries announced at the same time that they would be entering a new cooperation with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. However, they didn’t announce the details of this cooperation.

While many people were feeling doubtful, Xu Yi went around the Sines Continent like this before disappearing from the public’s eye again.

People were very doubtful about this.

What did Xu Yi come back this time to do?

“Dad, is this enough?” Freya looked at Xu Yi with a doubtful look, “Just giving them a bit of technical data is enough? Can they grasp it?”

“It’s enough.” Xu Yi nodded, “The major countries of the Sines Continent currently have a complete magic machine industry and accumulated technology. The outer space program sounds very hard, but as long as there is a foundation and they are given a direction for their research, then it isn’t that hard to develop it.”

“But to make them develop it themselves, wouldn’t the progress be very slow?” Freya knitted her brows, “Dad, didn’t you want those countries to enter outer space as soon as possible?”

“No, if it’s just entering outer space, we could do it ourselves. The reason that I want those Sines Continent countries to participate is to have them set their eyes on something higher. They shouldn’t just limit themselves to this small Sines Continent or this planet alone.”

Freya gave a shrug, “They might not understand your intentions.”

Xu Yi gave a laugh, “It’s beyond our control whether they understand or not. Knowing the benefits that come from the outer space program……or rather the threats, even if they aren’t willing, they will still invest in it.”

Freya couldn’t help revealing a smile as she said, “Dad, I really think that you are bad sometimes. The countries on the continent are always being led by the nose by you, they always have to worry about what you think if they want to do anything. Do you know? In the past few years, no matter which country I go to, they would always act cautious when meeting me, like they were afraid of offending me. I think that they aren’t afraid of me, but rather they’re afraid of you.”

Xu Yi revealed a smile, “That isn’t certain, perhaps they’re afraid of you? I’ve heard many people talking in secret, saying that Xu Yi’s daughter is like the father, she’s someone that can’t be offended.”

Freya pretended to be angry as she said, “Who said that! How am I that ruthless! Those fellows bullied me as the new chairman and think that I’m young and don’t understand things, so they try to trap me. If it wasn’t for dad saying that you wanted everyone to develop together, I would have already taken care of them!”

Xu Yi looked at the slightly angry Freya and revealed a smile before asking in a gentle voice, “Freya, it’s been hard being the chairman over the past few years, right?”

Freya was silent for a bit before first nodding and then shaking her head. She said with a smile, “It was quite hard in the beginning, but it wasn’t that hard after I got used to it.”

“Then do you regret your decision? If you’re not willing and want to step down, I will support you. Your mom has always told me that she wants you and Xu Zhuo to come to the island so we can live a happy life together as a family.”

Xu Zhuo, that was Xu Yi and Still’s second son.

He was different from Freya. He had a name that had the Chinese style from earth just like Xu Yi, so he was different just like Xu Yi.

Xu Zhuo had a different personality from Freya. He was very calm and wasn’t as lively as Freya, so he had always been interested in magic research.

With the fine genes passed down by his parents and the excellent magic environment of his family, Xu Zhuo had shown a strong talent in magic since he was young. He entered the Frestech Academy at a young age and directly entered the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s magic research facility after graduating.

Now that he was twenty eight years old, he was one of the project leaders and his current research project was related to the loss of magic power during consumption.

“No, I don’t regret it.” Freya still revealed the bright and carefree smile in front of Xu Yi, “I was only working hard in the first two years to stick with my decision, but after getting used to it, I feel that being the chairman is quite good.”

After a pause, Freya said very frankly to Xu Yi, “Dad, I like the feeling of being able to decide all these important things. This makes me feel like I’m in control of my own life and makes me feel free.”

“A position with such heavy responsibility makes you feel free?” Xu Yi was a bit surprised as he looked at Freya. He thought that this daughter of his was a natural ruler and was very different from him.

“Un.” Freya nodded, “I like this feeling right now, so you don’t have to worry that I won’t do the work you throw at me.”

Xu Yi couldn’t help smiling, “It’s certainly good that you’re willing to do this. I’ve said it before, you should decide your own life. As your father, I can only help you open a path, but whether you walk it or not depends on you. Now that you feel that this is good, then you might as well do it. But you have to know that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce chairman has great power, but also great responsibility, you can’t just do what you want based on your own intentions.”

“I know.” Freya hugged Xu Yi’s arm with a smile, “Dad, now that you already have control over the Magic Cloud Continent, have you ever thought of starting a country and taking over the Magic Cloud Continent as a king? I’m sure that would be very cool!”

“Cool your head!” Xu Yi hit Freya’s head without any courtesy before taking a deep look at her, “I’m not interested in that. If you’re interested, then you can be the queen, I won’t stop you.”

Freya rubbed her head as she said with a smile, “I’m not interested either. Although I like the feeling of being in control as the chairman, I still feel that it is very troublesome. If you want me to become a queen like aunt Seveni, then I would be exhausted to death.”

“It’s good that you understand.” Hearing Freya’s words that came from her heart, Xu Yi let out a sigh, “Your aunt Seveni……When I met her in the beginning, she was just a little girl with affection in her heart, completely different from how she is now……”

Freya secretly looked at Xu Yi’s complicated expression and after thinking about it, she carefully asked, “Dad, you and aunt Seveni……are you arguing right now?”

“No, there’s no argument between us. This is the Lampuri Kingdom’s problem, we all know this, but we also know that it can’t be avoided. This is something that we can’t do anything about and no one can complain about.”

“Then you going to the two empires, the Rudson Kingdom, as well as the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom, but leaving the Lampuri Kingdom right after uncle Heinz’s funeral……You haven’t met aunt Seveni since coming back at all, right? Raymond asked me about this yesterday.”

“Oh? Raymond asked you?” Xu Yi asked in a surprised voice, “What did you talk about?”

“Raymond just said a few casual things and extended his regards to you. He didn’t mention aunt Seveni at all. However, he did talk about you going to Banta City to go to uncle Heinz’s funeral, but not going to Anvilmar City.” Freya paused before saying, “Raymond seemed a bit unhappy……’

“Unhappy?” Xu Yi revealed a faint smile, “I was in Banta City for five days and didn’t Seveni also go to Heinz’s funeral?”

Freya blinked before she couldn’t help giving a laugh.

“Dad, why do I feel that……you and aunt Seveni are like a couple that is arguing?”

“Stop speaking nonsense!” Xu Yi reprimanded, “Seveni is the Lampuri Kingdom’s queen and you have to give her respect no matter what. Moreover, if your mom heard this……”

“Mom won’t say anything even if she heard it.” Freya said with a smile, “Mom told me before that if you were willing in the past, perhaps you would have already become the Lampuri Kingdom’s king.”

Xu Yi helplessly shook his head and said with a sigh, “It’s all in the past, don’t mention it again. In short, when it comes to differing opinions, Seveni and I indeed……have some places that we can’t agree on. But she is an old friend that I’ve known for over thirty years and the Lampuri Kingdom is our Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s most important partner and ally, so personal contradictions don’t mean anything. You don’t need to worry about this.”

“Raymond and I have never had any issues, we’ve always had a good cooperation. But in the outer space program that you raised, you’ve deliberately left out the Lampuri Kingdom, so I wanted to know what your true feelings were.”

“My feelings aren’t important.” Xu Yi shook his head, “The Lampuri Kingdom has the most developed magic machine industry on the Sines Continent and has the most accumulated technology, so they can’t be excluded from the outer space program.”

“Is that so?” Freya revealed a sweet smile, “Then I understand.”

Seeing Freya agreeing this easily, Xu Yi suddenly thought of a problem. He knitted his brows to ask, “Freya, is your relationship with Raymond very good?”

“Yes. We normally talk in private, so our relationship isn’t bad. What about it?”

“You……You wouldn’t have any feelings towards him, right?” Xu Yi asked in a hesitant voice.

“Feelings?” Freya looked at Xu Yi with a surprised look. After thinking for a bit, she understood what he meant and revealed a wide smile, “Dad, you……you’ve made a……mistake. Ha, ha……Ha, ha, I’m dying of laughter…….I know, so you……you don’t need to worry. How could I love Raymond? I already knew that Raymond is……”

Freya couldn’t stand up straight from laughter and could only force herself to look up at Xu Yi with a mischievous smile.

“He’s my little brother, right?”

Xu Yi was filled with embarrassment.
