Chapter 1361 - Lady Providence, Who Loves Wealth Like Life Itself

Xuan Ji watched Ye Zichen rub his hands together. She smiled, but shook her head and refused.

His plan was quite good, and did in fact sound interesting, exciting even. If she were an ordinary, unknown person and not the subject of hundreds of millions of gods’ attention, she might have really agreed.

Ye Zichen’s plan really was tempting.

But she was Xuan Ji, the pavilion master of Heavenly God City’s Profound Pavilion. She was Lady Providence, the subordinate of the God Emperor, Zhou Wu. Everything she did and said was under the scrutiny of the masses. She had to consider her impact on other people.

His plan, put nicely, was an underdog’s effort to replace his superiors: fun and exciting. But put differently, it was a bit insane.

Interest wasn’t enough to convince her to participate. She needed sufficient courage.

Xuan Ji was no coward, and had never lacked for courage, but hers wasn’t the only life on the line. She had to consider her subordinates, too.

“What a pity,” said Ye Zichen. He sighed as if he felt bad for her and shrugged. “You’ve just passed up an opportunity to change history.”

“It really is a pity,” said Xuan Ji, but she remained unmoved.

In truth, Ye Zichen had never seriously considered getting Xuan Ji involved in his scheme. He knew better than anyone just how insane his plan was.

As the pavilion master of the Profound Pavilion, everything Xuan Ji drew the masses’ attention.

If she actually joined him, it might very well stir up panic amongst the gods and alert his targets.

Even though he knew all that, he still thought it would be nice if she joined up.

If Xuan Ji got involved, that meant both she and her entire Profound Pavilion would stand behind him, including their various subordinate powers. This would strengthen his forces to an enormous degree. Furthermore, with the Profound Pavilion’s backing. This would make him and his plan seem far more legitimate, too.

In any event.

If she wanted to join up with him, he’d welcome her with open arms. If she didn’t, it wouldn’t actually have too much of an impact on his plans.

Besides, his true purpose in coming here wasn’t convincing Xuan Ji to begin with.

But….

“Surely you can help me with one small favor though, right?” Ye Zichen smiled.

This “favor” was his true reason for seeking out Xuan Ji. It was the precondition for the rest of his plans to work. If he had to act on his own, he could use his status as an emissary of the Outside and ask Zhou Wu for help. Ye Zichen was sure that, given the Upper Three Realm’s current tense, ambiguous state, the God Emperor wouldn’t refuse.

But after that, the God Emperor was sure to watch and consider Ye Zichen’s every move carefully.

That’s why he didn’t want to use the God Emperor as a shortcut to get his plans into motion. Xuan Ji was the top expert in Heavenly God City save for the God Emperor himself, and she was his top subordinate. He was sure that she could achieve the same effect, and that given their relationship, she wouldn’t expose his plans.

Xuan Ji froze somewhat. She naturally understood what favor Ye Zichen was referring to.

“Have you really thought this through?” She didn’t agree directly. Instead, she looked at him solemnly. She was worried that he’d let his excitement get to his head and that he was acting on the spur of the moment.

“Naturally.” Ye Zichen nodded and smiled assuredly. “I’m sure you already know I have the Yao-Sealing Pagoda in my possession. Although my faction can be considered a newcomer amongst the countless powers of the God Race, in terms of comprehensive fighting strength, we’re no weaker than other, established family clans. The yao servants of the Pagoda are no different from the descendants of ancient clans, either; there is absolutely no way they’ll betray me. We’re inferior to established clans only in terms of history and acc.u.mulated insider information.”
