Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 21
After hearing Ye Tian’s words, Aurelia’s face turned red again with her breath rasping in her heaving chest.
How dare Ye Tian tease her like this, knowing how noble her status was compared to Ye Tian; but still a wonderful feeling came over her in her heart.
It seemed that her heart was not exclusive, and that she even felt a little enjoyment.
How very exciting!
It seemed like this.
“What’s the meaning of ‘playing with it for all year’?”
After calming down, Aurelia asked curiously.
“It means I can play with your hand for a year all along without feeling tired …”
Ye Tian stared at Aurelia, explaining very seriously.
After hearing Ye Tian’s explanation, Aurelia felt that her head seemed to explode.
Gee,how dare this young slaveholder tease her like this, acting in a foolhardy manner?
“Mother, how are you?”
Seeing Aurelia’s body was trembling and her face flushed, she seemed very excited, Caesar couldn’t understand it and asked curiously.
Aurelia calmed down for a moment, but didn’t know how to answer. Could she tell him that his mother was ‘bullied’ by someone ‘s words?
“The gladiatorial preparations have begun. I think Mrs. Aurelia should be excited about this.”
Ye Tian explained lightly.
Caesar nodded, seemingly incomprehensible.
“Aren’t you afraid of being killed?”
After calming down, Aurelia asked Ye Tian lightly; she suddenly felt that Ye Tian was a dangerous man and that he could easily get her out of control.
“No. After all, you just said I’m the swordsmanship teacher of Caesar,isn’t it? I think you should be reluctant to give up such a good teacher.”
Ye Tian said with a light smile.
“I don’t think you want to be the swordsmanship teacher of Caesar, do you?”
Aurelia snorted and asked slightly.
“Hehe … you know how chaotic Rome is now. Big families have been colliding and may cause constant civil war. I don’t want to get involved in your storm! I just want to make a fortune and buy a few more beautiful female slaves … ”
Ye Tian smiled, shook his head and said with a ruffian voice.
“You are very insightful, but now you are just a citizen——a slightly richer citizen, don’t you want to be a noble? Only after being a noble will you be eligible to participate in the decision-making of Rome. In addition, I like men with ambition ! ”
Aurelia whispered to Ye Tian: “be the swordsmanship teacher of Caesar, and I will pave the way for you to become the noble!”
Undoubtedly, Aurelia’s words were like a heavy bomb in Ye Tian’s heart.
Since the Republic of Rome no longer produced new nobles in theory, the nobles that existed in the Roman Republic were basically the noble families left by the Roman Empire.
Non-nobles who want to become nobles generally need to be adopted by nobles or get married to the nobles.
Rome’s aristocracy was completely above the other civic classes.
The Senate was elected within the aristocracy and had nothing to do with the civic. In theory, a nobleman could be elected as a veteran as long as he reached the age. Of course, this person’s military achievements, political achievements, and personal conduct were in consideration.
Therefore, it was very difficult to become a noble of the Roman Republic; but after becoming a noble, there were endless benefits.
Mallory was the best example. He was indeed very talented, but he did nothing before he was forty years old. Only after he married Caesar’s aunt, within ten years, he began to climb up the social ladder rapidly.
“Ding——, the system releases the task: Become a Roman noble. The system rewards: Hybrid rice seed from the future; one thousand points of the mall; a battlefield killing experience card!”
At this moment, Ye Tian’s mind sounded like an audio prompt for the system.
“It looks like I have to accept Aurelia’s offer!”
Ye Tian rejoiced much in mind, even if there wasn’t the system’s reward, he would still accept being Caesar’s instructor if Aurelia helped him to become a noble.
There were too many advantages to becoming a noble; at least you can legitimately raise private soldiers, and even some knights.
Becoming a teacher of Caesar, he didn’t suffer losses as he could assist the future emperor.
“I’m very curious about why you are so persistent?”
Ye Tian was very calm on the surface, and didn’t rush to answer, but asked Aurelia seriously.
“Everything is for Caesar. I want to train him to be the best heir, and your swordsmanship is the most powerful I have ever seen! How about it? Are you satisfied with the conditions I offered?”
Aurelia explained, and finally asked Ye Tian confidently.
It’s so obvious that she is extremely diligent in cultivating Caesar, especially after she was assassinated with Caesar yesterday, she knew that relying on guards’ protection isn’t reliable, only their own strength was the greatest protection..
Moreover, she knew that when Caesar grew, he could not avoid going to the battlefield and killing his enemies. Only powerful abilities can save his life and it would be easier to kill the enemy and establish his merits.
She believed that Ye Tian was the most suitable teacher for Caesar, especially as today, even his casual words could make Caesar gain a lot and thus, it strengthened her determination.
