Old Man Lu believed in Jin Xiaoer’s strength very much.
After all, he could burn people to ashes with a single wave of his hand.
Therefore, Old Man Lu had reason to believe that Jin Xiaoer can cover them well.
He looked Jin Xiaoer with a bright in his eyes.
Don’t overthink it. Just leave it to them.
Qin Yi knew well the character of Old Man Lu, and since Old Man Lu was not worried, it meant that he could also relax completely.
After his mind was relaxed, Qin Yi began to have a pleasant exchange with Jin Xiaoer.
“Brother Jin, I don’t know if I should ask this question,” Qin Yi said.
Jin Xiaoer looked at him.
If you don’t know whether to ask what else to ask.
Although he thought so in his heart, Jin Xiaoer didn’t say so. Instead, he smiled and asked, “What do you want to ask?”
“Brother Jin, the Gold Coast is very famous in the surrounding countries, but you don’t know this place, so I’m a little curious whether you are those who have been cultivating in the remote place for a long time and you don’t know about anything outside.”Qin Yi said.
“No.” Jin Xiaoer shook his head, and then said lightly: “We came from a long distance, so we are not familiar with you at all.”
“So, that’s it.” Qin Yi suddenly realized.
But there are still some doubts in my heart.
He continued to ask: “Brother Jin, compared to the center of the mainland, our land in Qin is so barren. As a great cultivator, what made you think of coming to our land?”
“Oh, that’s right, Senior Lu is bored of playing at home, so I escort her to come out and play.” Jin Xiaoer whispered to him.
Qin Yi nodded and did not continue to ask.
He turned his head and glanced at Lu Xiaoyuan and Yao Yao. Unexpectedly, his eyes met Yao Yao.
“What are you looking at?” Yao Yao asked with tilting her head.
“No, it’s nothing.” Qin Yi waved his hand nervously.
In his mind, Yao Yao was also a predecessor cultivator who had a cute face.
“Humph.” Yao Yao snorted softly.
There was a flash of light in her mind.
“You are the prince, right?” Yao Yao asked with a smile.
“Yes, the next prince of Qin.” Qin Yi nodded, not knowing what Yao Yao was going to do.
“Then you must be rich?” Yao Yao continued to ask with smiling like a little fox.
“Yeah, that’s probably right.” Qin Yi thought for a while, and he was indeed quite rich.
“Could you lend me some money?” Yao Yao’s eyes were full of hope.
“How much Miss Yao Yao wants?” Qin Yi asked.
At the same time, his heart hurt a lot.
Qin Yi felt strange when he thought Yao Yao was a wise figure as a senior cultivator, but now he was supposed to call her a girl.
At least I have money to spend.
Yao Yao felt uncomfortable when she thought that she couldn’t even afford a bunch of candied haws.
But now that it’s fine, there is a rich man who can lend me some money.
“Good.” Qin Yi nodded.
Everyone chatted, and soon, some pedestrians and business people gradually appeared on the official road.
“My son, Zhenhai City is in front of us.” Old Man Lu said.
“Is Zhenhai City is a big city?” Lu Xiaoyuan was curious.
Qin Yi explained: “Zhenhai City is one of the few big towns in Qin State, it is second only to the imperial capital.”
“Because from Zhenhai City is three hundred miles away is the border of the Spirit State, and the relationship between the two countries has always been good, so Zhenhai City also has the heavy responsibility of large-scale transactions with the Spirit State.”
“Every year, tens of millions of gold coins will be transferred to the state treasury in Zhenhai City.”
Qin Yi continued: “However, the military expenditure of Zhenhai City is also huge.”
“Oh? If the relationship between the Spirit State is good, why is the military expenditure so huge? Are you afraid of Spirit State dissatisfaction? “Jin Xiaoer is a little curious.
Qin Yi shook his head.
“No, it’s not just our military expenditure, but the Spirit State is the same.”
“It’s not for attacking or defending each other, but for the people.”
Upon heard this, Jin Xiaoer raised his brows, “For the people?”
“Yes, there are many sea monsters in the sea, and those sea monsters will go on land to eat people from time to time.” Qin Yi sighed. He wished to kill all the sea monsters in his heart.
“It turned out to be like this…” Jin Xiaoer nodded, and then asked strangely: “But if the small town like Gold Coast is attacked, would you lend support from such far distance?”
“This is something that can’t be helped.” Qin Yi shook his head.
“The terrain there is more complicated, and most of the troops cannot be stationed there for a long time, so they can only be placed in Zhenhai City.”
“But there is no need to worry too much. There is my Qin State Navy on the sea. Once the sea monster comes, we will notify the people on the shore and let them evacuate as soon as possible. Many soldiers in the town can help the people to evacuate quickly, and then we will send several troops to defend.”
After listened to Qin Yi’s words, Jin Xiaoer nodded and didn’t ask much.
They were not familiar yet with Qin State.
However, as a country, they should be able to protect their people very well.
While they were chatting, they were getting closer and closer to Zhenhai City.
Zhenhai City was worthy of being a big city. The wall alone was as high as three feet. And the soldiers wore black armor and held halberds stood expressionlessly.
As he approached the city gate, Old Man Lu asked, “Master, do we need to tell the city lord when we enter the city?”
“No need.” Qin Yi shook his head.
“Well, then.” Old Man Lu nodded.
Zhenhai City is a big city, and we will receive interrogation from soldiers when we enter the town.
When Lu Xiaoyuan and her group came along, they were not interrogated.
Qin Yi took out a copper token from his arms, and the soldier let them in respectfully.
When they entered the city, Jin Xiaoer turned his head to look at Qin Yi, “If you do this, the city lord will still know that you are here.”
“No.” Qin Yi shook his head.
“The token I just have shown out is not a token of our royal family.” Qin Yi whispered.
“Before I came out, I got the token from the inspection court.”
“The inspection court is responsible for intelligence, and they would behead the officials before they were in front of the town lord. And of course, the soldiers don’t dare to stop us.” Qin Yi explained.
“People from the inspection court often travel to various cities and towns. This is normal, and no one will doubt it.”
“I see.” Jin Xiaoer nodded
After everyone entered the city, they discovered what prosperity is.
Every street was crowded with people, full of voices.
Yao Yao rode on the horse, her eyes rolling, scanned of the hawker’s stall.
“Hey, I want that!” Suddenly, Yao Yao pointed to a round fan and said towards Qin Yi.
Qin Yi followed Yao Yao’s position and looked towards a round fan.
They sold many round fans hanging on the cabinet that the hawker is holding, and the round fan that Yao Yao refers to was embroidered with a cute little rabbit.
The little rabbit was holding a carrot in its arms.
“Miss Yao Yao, wait a minute.” Qin Yi nodded towards Yao Yao, then turned over and got off his horse and walked to the hawker.
After a while, Qin Yi returned with the round fan.
After handed the round fan to Yao Yao, Qin Yi asked, “Does Miss Yao Yao like anything else?”
“Not for this time.” Yao Yao played with the round fan with an open eyebrow, and the more she looked at the little rabbit on the round fan, the cuter she felt.
“Not for this time.” Yao Yao moved the round fan with gleefully, and the more she looked at the little rabbit on the round fan, the more cute she felt.
It’s precisely like myself.
“You remember how much it is, and I will pay you back when I have money.” Yao Yao said to Qin Yi.
“No, it doesn’t matter, it’s just a few copper coins.” Qin Yi had a faint smile on his face.
In that tone, he didn’t care about a few copper coins.
Maybe this was the attitude of the wealthy towards a few copper coins.
Zhou Ye thought.
“So, a few copper coins are not money for you?” Yao Yao rolled her eyes.
Qin Yi just looked at her, smiled, and said nothing.
