They only had a few million Bei Mu citizens too, how would they be able to suppress the Hun citizens?
Liu Yue continued, “Alright, I will continue to speak then. The current situation right now is that the Kingdom of Hun has to give up one-third of their kingdom to get back their King who had been captured by their enemies.
Everyone, if today, Bei Mu faces the same situation, would you give one-third of the kingdom up for your king? Don’t rush in answering, think about it carefully first.”
Nobody spoke. Li Kuo Zhang opened his mouth a few times, but didn’t say anything in the end.
“No.” In the end, Empress Dowager Xiao answered coldly.
“That’s right, we won’t give it up. Instead of exchanging one-third of the kingdom with a king that has been humiliated, they would probably elect a new king. In fact, there are a lot of people who wants to be the King of Huns.” Liu Yue moved her fingers and pointed hard at the Huns’ capital, Yong Jing.
With an air of dignity, brilliance and absolute confidence, Liu Yue revealed her past demeanor of the leader of the number one mercenary group.
Empress Dowager Xiao and Prince Ye Lu Ji looked towards each other once again. With regards to this point, they definitely couldn’t refute it. This was also the reason why they had not returned to the Bei Mu Capital, Sheng Jing, and was thinking about the King of Hun’s ransom instead.
If they keep the King of Huns captive for too long, his value as a King would be diminished. A King of Hun that was not seated on his seat for a long time would not compare to a random Hun soldier on the streets.
There’s an expiry date for everything, even kings are not exceptions.
Hence, they had to discuss this during the most opportune moment and gain the most advantage.
It was obvious that the King of Huns also knew about this point, hence he had asked Liu Yue for a ransom amount yesteday.
“Then what do you think we should do?” The first general of Bei Mu, Ku Za Mu, looked towards Liu Yue and said.
Liu Yue’s finger immediately drew a circle on the map, pointing at the northwest borders between Bei Mu and the Huns, and said, “Rather than trying to bite more than what you can chew, why don’t we take this?”
Empress Dowager Xiao, Ye Lu Ji and the others bent over to look one by one.
“Ku Sha Plains?” Li Kuo’s eyes opened in surprise.
“That’s right, Ku Sha Plains and the neighbouring ten cities.” Liu Yue nodded.
