The once dilapidated scene no longer existed, and brand new cities now stood on this once forbidden zone. Many wagons and carriages that were frequently moving in and out of the cities could be seen on the newly opened roads, and many humans were gathering at the gates of the cities, ready to enter.
Shen Yanxiao was surprised to find that there were also a few lower demons in the crowd, and some even had their arms around the humans’ shoulders. The appearance of these demons did not cause any panic. On the contrary, there were many human beings who were willing to exchange physical contact with them.
Quite clearly, in the Barren Land, the relationship between humans and demons had undergone tremendous changes, from the past hostility to the peaceful coexistence!
"We'll be there soon." Qi Xia leaned into the carriage with his hands behind the back of his head, then smiled and looked at the side view of Shen Yanxiao’s face.
"How did you guys do all this?" Shen Yanxiao looked at the Barren Land full of vitality and felt like it was a dream.
"It’s not us, it’s you." Qi Xia simply said.
"Me?" Shen Yanxiao looked puzzled at Qi Xia. She was obviously not in the Radiance Continent during this time.
"You had given us a good foundation by transforming the att.i.tude of the demons toward human beings. And the humans here have already accepted the existence of the demons with The Rising Sun City set as an example." Qi Xia smiled. They simply expanded the foundation that Shen Yanxiao had left behind. All this was still thanks to the groundwork she had laid in the beginning.
Had it not been for Shen Yanxiao making the demons surrender and give them a stable life and a steady stream of food, they would never have been able to do this in such a short period of time.
It was her that resolved the demons’ appet.i.te for human beings, indirectly allowing humans to change their att.i.tude towards the demons.
Shen Yanxiao rubbed her nose. She really did not know that what she had left behind would have such a big effect.
"Now, the demons and humans in every city are living together peacefully. We also planted the plants reproduced by the originals in the underground of these various cities, and the demons are quite happy." Qi Xia said.
Every city seemed to be auspicious and peaceful. Every wall was so tall and tenacious. And a modified artillery stood atop the walls, seemingly capable of destroying anything.
This place had now become a small country. Whether considering the living environment or the defensive capability, it was not weaker than any country on the Radiance Continent.
Every resident here even enjoyed far better treatment than in any other country!
The Phantom Auction House had now split into more than ten. Several branches had been set up in several medium and large-sized cities. The most elite items from the Barren Land were being auctioned in them. And all these had acc.u.mulated great wealth for Shen Yanxiao.
Shen Yanxiao now had the money to treat every person and demon in all of her cities to a feast, and even treat them for a lifetime.
It could be said that the wealth of Shen Yanxiao had reached the point where the money was already too much to spend!
With economic support, more than fifty cities were built according to the highest specifications. The walls, buildings, and defenses had the top designs.
Any one of them, when compared with the other four countries, could shame the high-ranking officials of any imperial capital.
Within the cities that belong to Shen Yanxiao, there were no poor people, no beggars, and everyone had ample food and clothing.
