Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 17
She’s satisfied so easily?
Ye Tian was surprised that her loyalty reached one hundred in an instant, when he just gave her the position of housekeeper.
For Diana, that was not only a housekeeper’s identity, but also Ye Tian’s recognition and devolution to her, which had given her a measure of freedom.
Moreover, she was just new here , Ye Tian unexpectedly trusted her as such and granted her these rights that meant freedom. Which made her despaired future filled with an endless hope.
“Stand up. It’s getting dark. Go get dinner ready. What you want to eat you can choose by yourself, but there must be meat. As for the other slaves, besides letting them eat enough add some meat tonight… ”
Ye Tian said lightly, as he enjoyed her.
Diana reverently replied. Her heart trembled so much when she heard that even the other slaves could eat enough, and that there was even meat?
Perhaps, her master was the most benevolent slaveholder in the world!
It didn’t take long. Angela regained some strength and stood up. Apologizing fervently to Ye Tian, she and Diana went to prepare dinner for the evening.
Getting Five attribute points, Ye Tian can’t wait to set them.
Host: Ye Tian
Status: junior slaveholder
Number of slaves: 38
High quality slaves: 4
Slave Warriors: 10
The stats improved again, which made Ye Tian’s body inundated in a warm feeling. His strength became stronger again.
He also added two points to his charm stat. After all, tomorrow Caesar invited him to watch the gladiator battle in Crassus’s Colosseum. There must be many big shots.
Going by Crassus’s personality, it was highly possible that he would invite many nobles and big shots. Maybe there was even a gambling party.
Ye Tian did not want his low charm to arouse other’s disgust.
Charm: 77, it was not very high, but was beyond the ordinary standard range.
Ye Tian murmured softly of Crassus’s name, he was not only a genius, but also a business prodigy. He not only had a clever brain, but also cheekiness.
Without losing any chance of getting rich, Crassus could do everything, in any situation.
In history, Crassus found that the houses in Rome were row by row, very crowded, and it was very easy for them to catch fire. So he organized a fire brigade, which was very rare at that time. Once one house caught fire, before starting to extinguish the fire, he would seize the chance of those homeowners’ being scared, to buy other houses that were near the burning house at a very low price. In this way, Crassus acquired thousands of houses and dwellings, and then rented them to others at high prices.
Most shamelessly, in order to get a villa of a virgin of the Vestal temple, he entangled her eagerly with great attentiveness. so much so that he was suspected of having an affair with the Vestal virgin. In addition, Crassus also has numerous silver mines, and a large number of slaves with a clear division of labor.
He could also lay down his aristocratic identity and personally guide the education of slaves.
The next day, maybe Ye Tian would see the future leader of the ‘three great giants’.
He had a feeling that Crassus would be his main rival to accumulate wealth in Rome.
Moreover, this guy was now twenty-five years old, and his mind had already matured. It was possible that he already had a little reputation in Roman aristocracy. Of course, it may also be considered a stigma.
[TL note: 名气reputation ，骂名stigma。名：name。This sentence is a pun in chinese]
The night was dim, Diana and co cooked dinner soon after. At the request of Ye Tian, four women came together to feed him.
orioles and swallows(a bevy of young girls ), carne tremula live flesh(girls’s body or beauty face, let the room spread out a fragrance), life is comfortable and luxurious.
The food of ancient Rome was very developed, Ye Tian’s dinner was also very rich. There were many kinds of spices, and wine. .
However, no matter how developed the food culture of this era was, it couldn’t compare with the future in thousands of years.
[ED note: he probably is not a fan of the leaded wine i guess]
In addition, the tableware in ancient Rome were all leadworks. When Ye Tian arrived , he quickly changed them for himself. Although his body was strong, he didn’t want to live poisoning himself.
“Perhaps opening a restaurant would be a good way to earn money!”
After a filling meall, cuddling the girls left and right, Ye Tian was thinking secretly.
Roman food, he was tired of eating it long ago, nothing more than braised, boiled, roasted, without too many characteristics.
Perhaps, after he opened a unique restaurant in Rome, he could attract a large number of nobles, and it would be very popular in the audience.
But now was not the best time, because now he only had a way to make money, and hedid not have a powerful deterrent. Eventually he would become the dowry of others.(All wealth will be taken away by other powerful people)
Therefore, Ye Tian was in a bit of a suffocating position. Obviously, he mastered a lot of ways to make money, but couldn’t come up with a way to realize them.
It was absolutely necessary to collect money. Without enough wealth, how could he train powerful slave soldiers? Without sufficient wealth, how could he step on the Senate and overtake the aristocracy?
Catering, clothes, underwear, sanitary pads, perfume, glassware, ceramics, winemaking. etc. Ye Tian could think of too many ways to collect money.
Unfortunately, for now he did not have enough strength to implement these.
But soon it would be fine!
Everything was going well. but now he must tightly hug the beautiful woman’s long legs of Aurelia.(抱大腿，hug leg /riding on someone’s coattails)
