Chapter 968 968. Negotiation
The group from the Hive knew about the restrictions on the Empire. That organization didn't have many ways to interact with the political environment. They couldn't even attack any force thriving in the rest of the world.
The Hive would be happy to receive any help. The only issue was that Noah and the others didn't know how the Empire could improve their situation against the Ravaging Demon sect and the Elbas family.
That was why Noah had chosen to start the negotiations by asking what the Empire was willing to pay. It was pointless to hear its requests if it didn't have anything valuable to offer.
G.o.d's Left Hand felt surprised when she saw the trio in the fifth rank staring at her without any fear. Noah and the Demons were too conscious about their advantage in that situation to show any form of weakness.
However, the powerhouse of the Empire had lived for a long time, and she had managed most of the political matters since she was the weakest rank 6 a.s.set in her organization. Her experience when it came to negotiations far surpa.s.sed that of his guests.
"As expected by the cultivators chosen by the Almighty's will," G.o.d's Left Hand said as she laid a series of delicacies and wine on the praying mats. "You have abandoned any formality because I can't touch you. Nice guts."
Noah and the others disregarded her praise to focus on her first line. G.o.d's Left Hand had admitted that she was aware of the presence of Shandal's will somewhere in those Mortal Lands!
"I understand your confusion," G.o.d's Left Hand said when she saw the expressions of her guests. "The Almighty has tried different approaches across the millennia. Me and Right Hand have been informed of his mission since we reached the sixth rank."
"Why didn't you save the Empire with his it-," Dreaming Demon started speaking, but the powerhouse's aura suddenly spiked and cut her question short.
"I don't want to know where His will is," G.o.d's Left Hand explained. "I don't want to know what His separate dimension contains. I don't want to know anything at all. Are we clear?"
Her aura kept on increasing in intensity after she finished her question. Her veins bulged as her pressure almost hurt the cultivators in front of her. A few drops of blood came out of her eyes too.
The fact that she threatened her guest's lives had activated the restrictions one her, causing internal injuries. However, G.o.d's Left Hand didn't appear to care about them.
She wanted to show her determination when it came to her previous statement, and the group from the Hive could only nod to answer her.
Her pressure dissipated when G.o.d's Left Hand saw that gesture, and she resumed to speak in a calm tone. "The Almighty suspects that a large number of cultivators outside of Heaven and Earth's system will rise to the Immortal Lands. Making the Empire survive is my challenge, my struggle to reach the sky. I can't receive His help."
The cultivators from the Odrea nation didn't understand what she meant with her words, but the trio in the fifth rank felt conflicting emotions surging inside their minds.
On one side, they found G.o.d's Left Hand's decision idiotic. After all, her Patriarch had so many divine items that the entire world would collapse under their might. No cultivator could resist that temptation, especially those labeled as "Demons".
On the other, the powerhouse's faith in Shandal's mission left them speechless. She was willing to let her organization fall apart to abide by the task of her Patriarch.

Facing the hurdles that the world put in front of her without help would surely help her individuality. Still, the other option didn't prevent that from happening.
Noah didn't care that the powerhouse knew about Shandal's will. His position in that negotiation remained the same. It was pointless to hear her conditions if she had nothing valuable to offer.
"The Empire can give you five uses of the Second Life formation," The powerhouse said.
"Twenty, and the expenses are on the Empire," Noah replied. "Also, this is offer can only open the negotiations. I hope you weren't betting everything on the formation."
G.o.d's Left Hand scoffed and revealed a smile before continuing with her offers. "The Almighty has explored this world. The Empire knows all its secrets, and it is willing to share a few of them."
"We'll take all of them," Noah promptly replied. "What more?"
G.o.d's Left Hand's smile slowly faded as the negotiations continued. Noah would always ask for more than she offered, and he always requested her to add other a.s.sets on her plate.
Dreaming Demon and Flying Demon would intervene whenever the powerhouse mentioned items that Noah wasn't knowledgeable about. A decent offer formed as the trio did their best to rip the Empire off.
G.o.d's Left Hand ma.s.saged her temples when her side of the deal was over. She felt a headache rising at the thought of the ma.s.sive amount of resources that she was about to give away for her simple request.
"The Empire can't fight to conquer other lands," She said when it was her turn list her requests. "Yet, our restrictions say nothing about empty territories. We only want you to leave the regions of the Papral nation without an owner."
