Chapter 1389: 1389

Lin Yi’s voice dragged slightly . He noticed that Lin Yi had addressed him by his title in the Aslan Army, not the affectionate “Uncle” as he had in the past . This was a signal . He considered for a moment before turning to pull their relationship closer . “It’s been a long time, Hao Lin . You’ve grown into a man . You were still hugging my legs, beckoning me for a story last time I saw you . ”

Hao Lin gave a light smile . He understood what he was pulling and sighed inwardly without betraying any emotions on his face . “I was still young then, General . Is Major General Lin Feng well?”

“He’s been demoted to an ordinary soldier . Her Majesty the Queen gave him a chance to reclaim his honor . ” Lin Yi had a face full of sunshine as well . He wasn’t naive to think that their relationship as distant relatives would be of any use since it involved their countries . The prince had given him due respect to meet him alone .

Atlantis would still stand together with Aslan in the battlefield but would not make it clear . Lin Yi sighed . He was hoping that Atlantis could openly support Aslan and to send their fleet .

The train stopped and the door opened . A white strip of light appeared on both sides of the road . A group of heavily armed Atlantis warriors stood at attention when they saw Hao Lin .

They then entered through a heavily guarded door . All sorts of sounds filled their ears in that instant .

It was a huge war factory . There were countless machines operated by Atlantean technicians . They produced everything with high precision visible to the naked eye at an incredible speed . Every technician was a high priest in Atlantis . It was just one of countless factories of Atlantis .

Lin Yi was in awe . It was a miracle of rune technology . The Atlanteans and the Aslan people had similar production levels, but the scale and yield could be said to be that of industrialization versus a laboratory .

The parts were delivered to the final packaging stage, where the logo was finally brazed on . It wasn’t that of the Atlanteans, but of the Aslan Empire .

The core components of Aslan’s battleships were produced here . This was the primary reason Lin Yi had come in such a secretive manner . This batch had to be delivered on time . Lin Yi didn’t think Atlantis would deliberately break or delay the production, but it was better to be sure .

“Your Highness . ” A technician came over and greeted them .

Hao Lin nodded . “High Priest Tom, this is General Lin Yi . ”

“General Lin Yi, nice to meet you . We’ll complete Aslan’s order on time . ” Tom smiled slightly and gave Lin Yi a slight bow . The Atlanteans’ etiquette was never lacking .

“Your Holiness Tom, nice to meet you . That would be very much appreciated!”

Lin Yi returned their etiquette with more etiquette . He proceeded to ask some general questions about the production . Tom answered them without revealing any secrets .

Lin Yi still managed to find some clues . “It seems like there should be some room for improvement on the production rate, right?”

“Your Excellency General, I can only guarantee that we will finish the production within the stipulated time,” Tom answered calmly .

Lin Yi didn’t push any further after he confirmed this matter . He had to find a way to lobby with the Prince now .

“Your Highness Hao Lin, I don’t understand . The Arbiter Republic could never stand against us if Atlantis were willing to fight with us . In a hypothetical worse case scenario, if Aslan were to be defeated, Arbiter would never leave Atlantis alone . The Mayan Empire had expressed their intentions as well,” Lin Yi said . Diplomacy might look like it was all talk, but it could change the situation if they could find the right people .

“The times are changing, diplomatic strategies must change as well . Of course, we know you have difficulties as well, but what will Atlantis eventually become once it changes?”

Hao Lin listened quietly to Lin Yi’s persuasion . He was a good listener . In fact, he knew intuitively that Atlantis’ current strategy wasn’t the most suitable . They had received great benefits through the established system . Aslan’s contribution had to be acknowledged . That was why Atlantis was still exporting equipment to Aslan . Would the ruler of the new order still accept Atlantis’ “neutrality” like Lin Yi had said?

Humans’ ambition knew no boundaries .

Hao Lin grinned . “General Lin, you know that I have no say in politics . I’m not of age yet . My sister’s marriage is the current headache we have . ”

Lin Yi sighed in his heart again . “Your Highness, aside from our relationship, the Aslan Empire and Atlantis have been very friendly . To be honest, I’m here representing Her Majesty the Queen . Atlantis helped us since the start of the world, but the situation is indeed more critical now . Her Majesty the Queen wants to know Atlantis’ position . ”

Lin Yi opened his hand . It wouldn’t do to continue dragging this on . Hao Lin knew this was the case . Lin Yi had chosen him because Prince Hao Lin definitely knew the core decision, he was also more affectionate amongst the rest . That was Aina’s advice . Perhaps Hao Lin would think about this relationship .

They didn’t expect this affection to dominate Atlantis’ decision, but it could probably give Aslan a real signal .

Hao Lin sighed . Atlantis had made their decision . One wrong step would spell the end for them .

After so many years, Atlantis and Aslan did indeed possess something like a friendship . Aslan considered Atlantis its only equal in the Milky Way Alliance, which was the same for Atlantis .

“General Lin Yi, we hope that the Aslan Empire will win this war . We will support you with certain resources, but we cannot send troops on behalf of Aslan . ” Hao Lin gave a politically correct answer .

Lin Yi’s heart turned cold . Her Majesty was right . The Atlanteans had made their decision . They were brilliant and would never remain neutral in this troubled world . Who did they decide to support if not Aslan?

Arbiter? That wasn’t likely, they wouldn’t continue supporting Aslan in terms of resources and technology if they sided with them .

Manalasuo? Hail Cloud Alliance? Who?

Thousands of questions went through Lin Yi’s mind . The Atlanteans had chosen the ruler of the next era, just like they had for Aslan all those years back .
