Naturally, they want to get rid of us, a hidden danger, so that they can mine that resource in peace…
Zelda suddenly stopped.
She seemed to have thought of something, and the expression on her face immediately became a little shocked.
“Great Prophet, I think I remember. Didn’t we receive some information before?”
“That so-called Duke Lincoln excavated this resource point without telling the Vast Flame Kingdom’s officials.”
“This means that even if they found our Elf Valley, they wouldn’t be able to mobilize all the forces of the Vast Flame Kingdom to deal with us.”
“The most likely possibility is that Duke Lincoln’s private army will come to fight against us.”
“And if it’s only Duke Lincoln’s forces that are fighting against us, our Elf Valley is not completely without a chance of winning!”
After Zelda thought about this, she became more and more excited. In the end, her entire face was red.
Su Ming looked at Zelda, who was still talking, and a hint of a smile appeared on his lips.
It was indeed much easier to talk to someone like Zelda, who could see through everything with just a little bit.
“So, we can actually directly declare war on them now. We don’t need to worry about the giant Vast Flame Kingdom.”
“Under such circumstances, that Duke Lincoln is even more worried than we are. This matter will be exposed to the officials of the Vast Flame Kingdom.”
“After all, a Duke who shows signs of rebellion is something that the Vast Flame Kingdom’s officials can not tolerate, right?”
Zelda couldn’t help but nod slightly after hearing this.
“If that’s the case, then we have nothing to worry about.”
“I’ll immediately send someone to bring this news over.”
“We can send out a group of people to negotiate with the other side, and at the same time, we can gather our forces to deal with the war that could start at any time.”
When Su Ming heard that, he first nodded, then said, “If that’s the case, then let me handle the negotiation.”
Once she heard Su Ming’s words, Zelda was slightly taken aback, then she immediately frowned and his expression turned serious.
“No! That’s absolutely not allowed!”
“Great Prophet, your safety is of the utmost importance to the Elf Valley.”
“Although we now know where the other party’s bottom line is, we don’t know anything about their style of doing things.”
“If we let you negotiate with the other party, we can’t guarantee your safety.”
“We can’t let you go to the negotiation without ensuring your safety.”
Once he heard Zelda’s words, Su Ming first looked at her, then chuckled softly and said, “You don’t have to be so nervous about this.”
Zelda’s expression relaxed slightly, but she still looked at Su Ming with an extremely serious expression.
She had an expression that said, “I’ll never give in on this matter, so don’t think too much about it.”
When Su Ming saw her expression, he could not help but shake his head in amusement.
“Your reaction is too exaggerated.”
“No matter what they plan to do, I can guarantee my own safety.”
“Moreover, this negotiation might decide whether we should go to war with the other party or settle this peacefully.”
“I can’t trust anyone else for this kind of thing except you and myself.”
“And you need to stay in the Elf Valley to take charge of the situation, so I’m the only one who can go there to negotiate. Do you understand?”
Su Ming’s tone was slow, but it also sounded extremely serious.
Zelda wanted to say something after hearing his words.
But when the words reached her mouth, she couldn’t say anything in the end and could only turn it into a faint sigh.
“Alright, I understand.”
“Then, Great Prophet, when you go, remember to bring Mike with you.”
When Su Ming heard Zelda’s words and saw the worry on her face, he could not help but have the urge to crack a joke.
Then, Su Ming walked up to Zelda and patted her head with a slightly amused expression. He said, “You look like a little wife who’s worried about her husband when he’s out fighting.”
However, to Su Ming’s surprise, Zelda did not laugh at his joke.
Instead, the expression on his face became a little complicated after a slight shock.
Su Ming was momentarily stunned and instinctively pulled his hand back.
Yet right after that, Zelda grabbed Su Ming’s hand.
“Great Prophet, you must pay attention to your safety.”
“Every time you go out, I will pray for you and pray for your safe return.”
When Su Ming heard Zelda’s words, his expression instantly froze.
He wasn’t stupid. How could he feel the love in Zelda’s words?
He took a deep breath and looked at Zelda before him, then nodded slightly.
“I know, I’ll be careful.”
Zelda seemed to have realized that he might have lost her composure just now. She looked embarrassed for a moment.
However, she was in a high position all year round, after all, and she brushed off this awkwardness with a few casual words.
After that, Zelda said a few more words before she said, “Then, Great Prophet, I’ll have to trouble you for this negotiation.”
The moment Zelda finished speaking, a notification lit up before Su Ming.
[Congratulations on triggering the mission: negotiation]
[Mission description: The Elf Valley that you are in is in conflict with Duke Lincoln. You need to represent the Elf Valley in a negotiation with the Duke.]
[Mission reward: Zelda’s favorability +2, spirit light cloak.]
Su Ming looked at the task that had appeared before him, and he felt a mix of emotions.
To be honest, the mission description was not out of his expectations. Everything seemed normal.
However, Su Ming did not know what to say about the reward.
He was not a fool. How could he not see Zelda’s thoughts?
Right now, her favorability toward him was about to explode.
Su Ming did not know what to say when he saw that the reward for the mission at that moment included her favorable impression points.
Besides that, the reward called the cloak of spiritual light should be quite a good piece of equipment in Su Ming’s eyes.
After all, every time Zelda gave him a mission, the reward seemed to be quite good.
