Volume 5 Chapter 142 Do you want to go back
Teresa slowly came over like a frightened little rabbit. She looked at Xu Yi and hesitated a bit before asking in a soft voice, “Sir chairman, do you…..have time right now”
“Un What is it” Xu Yi asked back.
“If you…..have the time, can you come to the development center for a look Master Camby and the others…..theyre about to start fighting.”
“Ha” Xu Yi thought that Teresa came alone for something else, but he never thought that this would be the first thing out of her mouth.
“Camby and them are about to fight With who Why” Xu Yi asked with a face covered in shock.
“With master Bordeau and master Donorman.” Teresa lowered her head as she replied, “They were arguing because of an issue with the Fire Magic Engine and no one would back down, so their argument became very heated. When I left, they were about to start fighting…..”
“Those fellows really are……” Xu Yi helplessly shook his head.
Camby and the other dwarves were very serious with their work, had good skills, and werent afraid of working hard, plus they were very passionate about their work. It could be said that they were perfect researchers, but there was a common problem among them which was that the dwarves had a temper.
This temper was normally good, but it was hard to avoid arguments when it came to different views on research, so it was easy for them to explode.
Because of this, the dwarves of the magic machine development center would frequently argue and would even start fighting.
Although they did have some discretion and didnt cause any fatal injuries, as well as forgetting about this argument after fighting and working like normal, having Xu Yi go and clean up after them each time was something that caused a headache for him.
“Alright, Ill go immediately.” Xu Yi looked around before tidying up and having Teresa follow him.
When they left, Teresas eyes looked over the map on the wall and a bit of doubt appeared in those eyes.
Xu Yi noticed this and just revealed a smile. He didnt say anything as he quickly walked out.
The magic machine development center was some distance from Xu Yis personal manor. If he was alone, he could use Spatial Magic to head there immediately, but with Teresa, he couldnt do that.
So he brought Teresa to his Magic Sedan that was parked in the yard and had her get in.
When the two of them were sitting in the Magic Sedan, Xu Yi suddenly thought of an issue.
“Right, Teresa, why did you come here And why did you come looking for me Wheres Feven Why didnt she go”
The Feven that Xu Yi spoke of was the administrative manager of the magic machine development center. She was mainly in charge of the various administrative work for the magic machine development center and didnt participate in the research.
The engineers of the magic machine development center even said that Feven was like their nanny.
When Camby and the others started arguing, if it couldnt be suppressed, it was Feven who came looking for Xu Yi for backup.
“Manager Fevens granddaughter was born yesterday, so she asked for several days off.” Teresa replied.
“Oh…..I remember.” Xu Yi nodded. He kept looking at Teresa, waiting for her to reply.
Teresa felt Xu Yis gaze and her face turned red as she lowered her head again. After a while, she replied in a low voice, “I saw that no one could stop master Camby and the others, so I thought that I should ask you to come. They were all very busy and I felt…..that I havent seen sir chairman for a long time, so I ran over here……”
Seeing that even Teresas ear turned red, Xu Yi revealed a faint smile. He didnt keep asking as he started the Magic Sedan, driving it out of the manor.
When the Magic Sedan drove for two kilometers on the road, Teresa slowly recovered. She looked back at Xu Yi with a focused look.
“What are you looking at” Xu Yi felt her gaze and asked this with a smile.
Teresa quickly turned to the side.
Teresa didnt say it, so Xu Yi took the initiative to ask.
“Speaking of this…..Teresa, youve been working at the military magic machine department for a year now I still havent asked you, how is it working there”
Hearing Xu Yi ask about herself, Teresa gave a sweet smile and replied, “Many thanks for sir chairmans care. Ive been doing well during this time and the colleagues are all good to me, caring very much about me. I am very happy working with them.”
“Is that so Ive heard Evita say that you would often look for her to ask questions about the military magic machines, it seems like youre working quite hard.”
Teresa had a strange look that wasnt easy to discover on her face as she said with a nod, “Un, I want to make more contributions to the company, so Ill work harder. Chief Evita has been good to me, shes helped me a lot.”
“Un, this is something she should do as the chief. I asked her in private to help you a bit more.” Xu Yi gave a soft sigh, “But Teresa, is the reason you want to develop the military magic machines really because of your father Viscount Doran Carlanz”
Teresas smile disappeared and her head fell down. When she looked up again, she had a firm look once again.
“Yes, sir chairman, my father and my entire family were killed by those despicable Sack Kingdom nobles. I am his only daughter left, I must take revenge for him!”
“But havent you thought of a problem Even if you work hard to develop the military magic machines, that doesnt mean theyll be used against the nobles of the Sack Kingdom. In reality, the military magic machines that youve developed might end up in the hands of those nobles of the Sack Kingdom that you hate.” Xu Yi said.
Teresa was stunned. Her eyes couldnt help popping open as she looked at Xu Yi in disbelief and asked, “Sir chairman, you…..are you serious Could it be that youre planning on selling the military magic machines to the Sack Kingdom Havent you always been hostile towards them”
“I just dont like the Sack Kingdom because they worked with Duke Wein to attack our company before. But if were talking about being hostile…..that isnt certain. In the end, I am a merchant and our Frestech Chamber of Commerce is a company. As long as the conditions are good, well sell our products to whoever we can, dont you think”
Teresa looked at Xu Yi in a daze as her eyes filled with complicated emotions. She finally bit her lip and lowered her head, not saying a thing.
Xu Yi looked at her as his lips curled into a smile of deep meaning and he asked, “Are you disappointed”
Teresa slowly shook her head, but she was still silent.
“Teresa, I know how you are feeling and sympathize with you, but you have to understand that I am the Frestech Chamber of Commerces chairman and need to consider the entire company. If the Sack Kingdom can bring enough benefits to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, I dont mind putting down the grudges from before. As for your wish…..Although its very cruel, I can only say that it isnt important enough.”
Teresa lowered her head even more and she even put her head in her knees. Her legs came up and her arms hugged them as her back trembled, letting out a soft crying sound.
Xu Yi looked at her and had a strange smile on his face. His voice was even more calm compared to before as he said in a soft voice, “Actually, Teresa, isnt your target for revenge wrong The one that killed your father Viscount Doran Carlanz and your family wasnt the entire Sack Kingdom, but Count Orzil, right Why do you need to target the entire Sack Kingdom”
Teresa suddenly looked up with tears on her face, but she also couldnt hide the surprise in her eyes at all.
“Sir……Sir chairman……how do you know about this”
Xu Yi gave a shrug, “Of course its that after hearing your story, I sent someone to inquire about this. According to the report, your father and family were falsely accused by Count Orzil and the crime of treason was faked. Actually, in the Sack Kingdom, your father had already restored his reputation. You were here all these years, so you never received the news.”
Teresa trembled as her expression changed several times before she asked in a trembling voice, “Sir chairman, you…..Since you already knew, why didnt you tell me”
“I only learned this last month and then because I was busy, I never told you.” Xu Yi gave a shrug.
Teresa looked at Xu Yi with a vacant look.
Xu Yi gave a sigh, “Teresa, its fine even if you want to return to the Sack Kingdom now. Your fathers reputation has been restored and the Count Orzil who framed your family has already been thrown in jail by the Sack Kingdom. After you go back, you can take over your fathers title as the Viscount and live a peaceful life. Are you…..willing to go back”
Teresa was stunned for a bit before slowly shaking her head.
“No……I……Im not going back……I dont want to go back to the place that hurt me.” Teresas body suddenly shook before turning to Xu Yi and anxiously asking, “Sir chairman, are you chasing me away”
“Of course not.” Xu Yi waved his hand, “If youre willing, you can stay here for as long as you want.”
Teresa gave a sigh of relief and her body relaxed.
She lowered her head to think for a bit before looking up at Xu Yi with a serious and determined look.
There was a rather steep curve in front, so Xu Yi focused on driving and didnt turn his head to look at her.
But then he felt his right hand being grabbed by two soft hands before being raised and placed onto something soft.
The sharp sound of the car braking could be heard from afar.-
