Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 19
“Good morning, Lord Satan!”
A smile appeared on Caesar’s young face as he greeted Ye Tian.
Ye Tian said faintly, he then couldn’t help but reach out his palm, gently stroking Caesar’s head as he slowly said, “Now you have finally become a little warrior. Two or three years later, when you step into the battlefield, you should be a majestic-looking general! ”
Caesar was given a head-touch kill by Ye Tian again and the black line on his face suddenly appeared, but Ye Tian’s praise and recognition made him very happy, so he turned his head to the other side and escaped from Ye Tian’s grasp.
“Lord Satan really has his own vision!”
Aurelia walked over to Ye Tian’s side while a charming fragrance wafted on her body, she to Ye Tian with a smile.
“Madame, I’m just sensitive to the smell of blood!”
Ye Tian shook his head and said lightly.
“Lord Satan, can you teach me swordsmanship?”
Caesar looked up again before looking forward at Ye Tian.
“Swordsmanship isn’t practiced, it is instead, exchanged for your own life through fighting! In addition, even superb swordsmanship requires a strong physique …”
Ye Tian explained lightly, reaching out his palm again, however, this time he was avoided by the now wary Caesar.
“See? This is instinct … when your swordsmanship has also become a part of your instinct, you will become a master.”
Although Ye Tian didn’t manage to touch Caesar’s head, he was still very calm as he said this deeply.
“I … probably already know it! Thank you, Lord Satan.”
Caesar froze a little before he then said thankfully.
“Let’s go. We’ve also bought a front spot for you …”
Seeing Caesar and Ye Tian being on intimate terms, Aurelia smiled as she said this lightly.
Ye Tian nodded and then walked towards the manor house with Aurelia, however, he was a little behind, it was only half a step to be exact, this made Aurelia smile.
“Mrs. Aurelia, Little Caesar, your arrival is my great honour. Please come in. Your seats are ready!”
When Ye Tian came to a large bluestone-stacked building like a huge bunker, a young man stood next to the door. As soon as he saw Aurelia, he became extremely enthusiastic as his face smiled with warmth.
He had brown curly hair with a handsomely fair face, he also had a healthy body that looked to be twenty-four-years of age, while exuding aristocratic grace, his eyes were flashing with the unique wisdom of businessmen.
“Lord Crassus, your Colosseum is the only one that is so wonderful in Rome. May I ask what shows you have prepared today?”
Aurlelia’s face showed a smile of fascination, this made Crassus a bit absent-minded, after a short moment, he then made a very gentlemanly smile and said: “Today’s show will definitely open your eyes, wait for screaming! This way, please! ”
“We are looking forward to it!”
Aurelia smiled as she said faintly. While taking Ye Tian towards the bunker, in the next moment, the smile on her face disappeared as she looked very peaceful, it seemed like she looked upon Crassus.
Finally, Ye Tian met this person!
The first impression he gave Ye Tian was that he was really a gentleman, very kind and charming as it was very easy for Ye Tian to relax his own vigilance and start to trust him.
However, Ye Tian also knew that the man was really difficult to deal with. In the depth of his eyes, there was nothing but a terrible ambition.
The bunker was almost sealed, it was very dark. A torch suddenly burned above the stone pillar above it, it made the whole bunker bright .
Among these were many stone statues, these were the gods of war, beasts, goddesses, or brave warriors who were fighting against the beasts. These stone statues seemed lifelike under the torch, it also made them appear very sacred, solemn, because of this, the atmosphere around the area was rendered to the extreme.
In a vast open space, a circular stage with a diameter of twenty or thirty was built. Around the said stage, thick steel was used to form a large iron cage.
Inside the iron cage, dried blood was everywhere, it exuded the smell of iron, it was almost as if there was even the sorrowful cry or wailing from the blood that laid here.
Below the stage, there were rows of benches for the nobles to watch. At least 500 people could be accommodated!
This was the original gladiatorial field of Ancient Rome, as this house was run by Crassus, it should be the largest and the most luxurious, formal one in Ancient Rome.
Which already had the prototype of the world-famous Colosseum in the future.
They were late. At least two-thirds of the seats in the front of the Colosseum cage had been filled. The nobles in the front rows were whispering.
The normal citizens and slave owners of Ancient Rome sat on the back rows, they could only talk more carefully for fear of disturbing the nobles in front.
There were men, women, old, and young among the people.
Although it was quite quiet now, once the gladiatorial fights began, the shouts that were produced here would be absolutely deafening.
Aurelia found their seats soon, with Ye Tian on the left and Caesar on the right, Aurelia sat in the middle.
After sitting down, a faint scent of fragrance drifted into Ye Tian’s nose.
Aurelia was indeed a glamorous woman, and it was easy for her to inspire a kind of emotion in men.
According to the records in the ‘Biography of the Twelve Emperors of Later Romans’, in the period of disappointment, Caesar dreamed that he had defiled Aurelia.
When he went to find a fortune teller to interpret the dream he had, the fortune teller told him that he was destined to rule the world, because the mother he dreamed was nothing else but the land that was regarded as the mother of all things.
Because of this, his inner ambitions were thoroughly stimulated, he began to have a meteoric rise with no obstacles in his path(all the way up to the achievements recorded in history.), therefore achieving the greatest achievements of Ancient Rome.
