Qiao Tian Chang stared at Ning Meng Yao with his eyes wide opened: “What do you mean?”
“Do you know who Emperor Luo is?” Ning Meng Yao asked Qiao Tian Chang seriously.
“He’s a man with ambition but no ability.” Qiao Tian Chang disdained.
Ning Meng Yao nodded: “That’s correct, but the princes under him aren’t the average sort. If they really have any plans for war, the first one to be targeted will probably be Xiao Country. Besides, Qiao Zheng Hong was demoted, if they leveraged on it…”
Her words were clear and Qiao Tian Chang understood. He squinted his eyes slightly and a thought flashed through his mind.
Then he looked down at Ning Meng Yao and asked: “Yao Yao, could you do me a favor?”
“What is it?.”
“Help me investigate the movements of the surrounding countries. Although the emperor is probably doing some investigations as well, but I don’t think they’re as detailed as your Tong Bao Zhai.” Tong Bao Zhai was spread throughout every country. She wouldn’t have to deliberately investigate to get information, let alone the information she could obtain if the investigation was done deliberately. Besides, Tong Bao Zhai was a platform used to sell information illegally.
Ning Meng Yao thought for a moment and nodded: “Alright, I can get the information for you easily.”
Five days later, Ning Meng Yao held a stack of papers in her hand and handed it to Qiao Tian Chang with a serious expression: “Tian Chang, have a look.”
Qiao Tian Chang took the papers over and had a look. The more he read, the more he was shocked. Several countries had actually began to make a move secretly. In their eyes, Xiao Country had just undergone a war not long ago. The national treasury must be empty and unable to support large-scale wars so they wanted to take this opportunity to launch an attack on Xiao Country.
“How could this be?” Qiao Tian Chang hadn’t questioned the Royal Court these past few years. Many of the news had been blocked. Therefore, he was so surprised when he had a look now.
Reaching out her arm, she patted Qiao Tian Chang’s shoulders and said worriedly: “Tian Chang, you…”
“I’m fine. Actually, Xiao Country’s national treasury is very much sufficient. You must know that Qi Tian is a genius when it comes to business and he has earned a lot of money in recent years. Two-thirds of the money he earned was donated into the national treasury. Plus he also earned quite a lot from the collaboration with you.” Qiao Tian Chang smiled. Xiao Country had always been prepared. Since when were they never?
Upon listening to him, Ning Meng Yao was relieved. However, looking at the information in his hand, she asked: “Erm… Do you want to send this?”
“I’m afraid that Xiao Qi Tian has already investigated about me. Besides, I’m also your fiance. I’ll be married to you sooner or later. In his eyes, we’re on the front line, so it wouldn’t be a problem to let them know. In any case, I can also be of help, can’t I?” As long as the war didn’t start, everything was fine. If there was a war and Tong Bao Zhai was withdrawn from other countries, then their economic level would definitely be short-lived.
What would happen after their economy shackles? Anyone with a brain would know the answer.
“Yao Yao, this matter is very important so I have to make a trip back.” He couldn’t trust to hand over this matter to others. He had to be there in person.
Ning Meng Yao thought about it and then nodded: “You go, but be careful.”
Before Qiao Tian Chang left, Ning Meng Yao applied some makeup on him so that he would be unrecognizable.
After Qiao Tian Chang left, Ning Meng Yao sighed heavily. Her eyes were filled with bitterness. She wanted to stay out of the matter initially but it seemed that was impossible now. However, she didn’t regret her choice.
After returning to Beijing, Qiao Tian Chang secretly entered the palace to meet Xiao Qi Feng.
When he saw Qiao Tian Chang, he became excited: “You’re back.”
“Get up, you don’t have to be so polite.” Xiao Qi Feng quickly walked down from his table and helped Qiao Tian Chang up. It was obvious how precious Qiao Tian Chang was in his heart.
After Qiao Tian Chang stood up, he took out a stack of paper and said seriously: “You must have a look at this, Your Highness.”
Xiao Qi Feng took the papers curiously. After reading it, his face became pale instantly. He looked at Qiao Tian Chang sternly: “Tian Chang, where did you get this from?”
“Yao Yao helped me to gather these information.” Qiao Tian Chang replied honestly.
“Ning Meng Yao?”
“Yes, she’s the owner of Tong Bao Zhai. She told me that if a war was to break out, I would have no worry about the armament, which made me question about her identity. Finally, I asked her to help me investigate, and this is the result from the investigation.”
